Your Milky Way Horoscope Dec. 18-24, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

Venus in Capricorn squares Saturn at 27 degrees Libra at 9:18 am Sunday
. Venus-Saturn squares usually are either very good or very bad for love. One might formalize (Saturn) an engagement with an announcements (banns) or at least with a serious proposal. One might break off/end a romantic relationship. One might have cash flow problems, too. This is a special kind of aspect, a mutual reception, where the ruler of one sign is in the sign ruled by the other. Saturn is exalted in Libra so is the stronger party in this mutual reception. One might break off a relationship and be better off because of it.

The Sun in Sag sextiles Saturn at 27 degrees Libra at 11:24 am Monday. Positive Sun-Saturn aspects help one to discipline oneself to achieve a goal, such as checking off chores from your to-do list. You may benefit from chatting with a mentor or more experienced person.

Venus promptly makes two different aspects hours later. Venus squares Jupiter at zero degrees Taurus at 9:19 pm Tuesday, and sextiles Uranus at zero degrees Aries at 2:56 am Wednesday. Venus-Jupiter squares just dare us to go overboard on food, drink, sweets. Venus-Uranus sextiles give us an extra charm, we are interested in meeting new people (preferably ones with an foreign accent or who are unusual in some way). We may have an extra knack for music and jazz and the arts in general, as Venus and Uranus govern music and rhythm.

Venus enters Aquarius at 1:26 pm Tuesday. I do not believe that Venus in this sign means free love or open marriages or anything of the kind. Aquarius is a fixed sign, and Venus (or the Moon) in an air sign in general means that one prefers to have a mental connection with the one you love, in fact you demand it. I have known Aquarians who stay married for decades to the same partner; although the partner may be quite different from them in some way. Examples: different backgrounds, religion or race.

The Sun enters Capricorn at 12:30 am Thursday. Happy birthday to all the “sea goats” out there. Capricorns are hard-working and tend to be ambitious – if not for themselves then for their kids. Cappy is not as dull as they're often made out to be, but when they are at work, they give it their all. Off duty, they may enjoy camping out and roughing it, or reading about history. They admire self-made men and women.

The Sun promptly trines Jupiter still at zero degrees Taurus at 9:33 am, and squares Uranus in Aries at 5:14 pm Thursday. Sun-Jupiter trines are quite lucky, and you may not have to do anything more than stand still so that luck can find YOU. Sun-Uranus squares provoke us into letting out the inner rebel, so you might wear something unusual or hang out with some strange people.

Looking ahead, Jupiter makes a stationary direct at zero degrees, 22 minutes of Taurus at 5:08 pm Sunday, Dec. 25, Christmas Day. This should be extraordinary. In the middle of a recession, this station perhaps inspires us to look to the true meaning of Christmas on a spiritual level (Jupiter), even though Taurus is a sign that likes material comforts. Could we see the two blended in exquisite, inspirational music, possibly for opera or theater?

Also note: some aspects are exact on a weekend but may find opportunity for expression on the Friday or Monday nearest the exact aspect. Times given are in Eastern Standard or Eastern Daylight Savings Time depending on the season.

ARIES - March 20-April 19 – On Sunday your mate may suddenly change plans for the day, or possibly mom may drop in unexpectedly. (Have holiday cookies ready.) Your mate may help you study for an exam Monday. Venus enters your solar eleventh house of friends on Tuesday; you enjoy time with kindred spirits, some of whom you may not have seen for ages. You may also give time to help with fund-raising for your fave local charity. Thursday morn, Solstice day, may be rather lucky for you. Saturday morn is alas, rather stressful and decorating may not go smoothly.

TAURUS
- April 20-May 20 – Pay attention to diet on Sunday as too much dairy may offend your digestion. Monday could be a good day to pick up extra work on your sideline business. Venus enters your solar tenth house of career on Tuesday; your employer starts to ponder what else they can use you for. Thursday looks very lucky if you are building your future. Enjoy the employee appreciation perks received this month. You might start to dream about your next long trip, or going back to school. Hopes of seeing your words in print could come true.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Share Sunday brunch with an unusual friend. You may be glum about your love life early in the week, but hold on--- Venus enters your solar ninth house of law-college-publishing on Tuesday; you might get to take a nice long trip with someone you love. Or, if you start out alone, you could meet some lovely person in the next seat. Mercury with the Moon in your solar ninth house helps you find a public for your writings on Thursday. You may spend a winter vacation doing extreme sports.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Sunday morning is particularly stressful with a square in cardinal signs; you may really have to push to get those Christmas cookies done, and for gosh sakes watch they don't burn. Monday favors having company over, Wednesday favors having a party for the kids with games. Venus enters your solar eighth house of pooled resources on Tuesday; you may be able to get credit, or you get involved in the family business. You may really have to push to get work done Friday.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – A Monday lunch with a mentor or older relative could be quite helpful. Venus enters your solar seventh house of partners on Tuesday; turn on the charm, Mr or Miss Leo, and see what lovely things (including new romances) come your way. Apply your best manners to every situation, too. You may be able to pick up an extra job in the service sector over the holidays. You enjoy being with the public on Saturday, and may even work extra hours.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Don't be surprised if throwing a party for the children Sunday costs more than you thought; plan carefully. On Monday you figure out how to throw that party painlessly. Venus enters your solar sixth house of health and work on Tuesday; you want to feel good and so begin trying out new treatments or spa services. You could also adopt a new furry love-muffin (aka pet). You seek out more creative outlets over the holiday break; perhaps you could stock up on art supplies. Thursday could be quite lucky for you.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from 3:06 am Sunday till Tuesday morn. Don't be too surprised if someone makes a surprise visit early Sunday. You may decide this week to spend a buck on home and family, but only when you find the right deal. If in school, you may earn a special recognition Monday. You may do someone a Random Act of Kindness Tuesday morning; it does not matter if they say thanks, they may be too stunned to think what to say. Venus enters your solar fifth house on Tuesday, ushering in a month of delightful flirting.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from 5:33 am Tuesday till Thursday morn. Emotions may quite sneak up on you Tuesday, so keep a hankie handy. Venus enters your solar fourth house of home on Tuesday; you want to redecorate, but making items with your own talented hands may be more satisfying. Your energy is good Wednesday, so plan on devoting time to a project or holiday prep. With the Sun entering your solar third house, you may do a lot more talking than your laconic self prefers, but it is only for a few weeks.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is Sag from 7:03 am Thursday till Saturday morn. Thursday is an extremely busy day with things coming in twos or threes, plus some coincidences. Christmas shopping of course, but possible flashes of insight, too. Venus enters your solar third house of transit, messages, and books on Tuesday; you may receive books as Christmas gifts, love letters, make money from your internet blogs, or do more socializing. The Sun enters your solar second house this week; while you may do more shopping or earning, it is also very common for this transit to mark a move, with all the handling and packing of every single thing you own.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Venus enters your solar second house of finances on Tuesday; you may start hanging around beautiful places like galleries, showrooms, posh houses, etc. You exchange gifts of beauty, comfort or confections. The Moon is in Capricorn from 8:47 am Saturday, Christmas Eve, thru the holiday weekend. You are quite determined to observe this Christmas in your own fashion, nixing any prior traditions no matter what. You may upset others with last-minute changes in plans, so try to give advance notice at least.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 -Sunday does not favor throwing a party, however Venus enters your sign Tuesday and joins Pallas early next week, which enables you to play Social Director very nicely. Venus enters your solar first house of self-image on Tuesday; you visit a salon for a makeover, primp a little more, socialize more, pay each other compliments. Tuesday night may be a little stressful at home, but more relaxed at a relative's or neighbor's house. Thursday you just want to cocoon in your own home. Saturday also favors small gatherings with just you, your mate and the kids.

PISCES
- Feb. 18-March 19 – Sunday favors creative outlets, so if you're making some of your gifts, bless your lil old heart. Monday favors getting chores done and checking off items on the to-do list. Venus enters your solar twelfth house on Tuesday; you may discover you have a secret admirer or secret backer, or participate in behind-the-scenes deals. You may receive kind advice about investing but you don't want to hear it just now. The coming month sees you focusing efforts for your club or team, possibly as an officer or coach. Thursday favors fun times with friends or relatives, so put together a small but choice selection of photos to pass around.
