Your Milky Way Horoscope April 15-21, 2012

By Milky Way Maid

Mercury enters Aries at 6:42 pm Monday
. Mercury in Aries has a very witty and quick mind, although he may be too impatient to sit down and focus on lessons or homework. Parents may have to stand over them to make sure homework is done, possibly coaching them thru it. Mercury in Aries is kind of like in Leo because they both tend to order people around. It is far better to master the art of motivating people to reach the targets you draw on the chalkboard. And Aries can be very, very good at that. Use carrots instead of sticks, in other words.

Famous people with Mercury in Aries include Albert Einstein, Copernicus, Queen Elizabeth II, Will Shakespeare, Toscanini, Van Gogh, and many more.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all Taureans! The Sun enters Taurus at 12:12 pm Thursday. Jupiter is still in your sun-sign, so baby bulls should be lucky if a bit pudgy. See the notes on the New Moon for more . . .

A New Moon touches 1 and a half degrees of Taurus at 3:18 am Saturday, April 21. The Sun-Moon conjunction will probably be in your third house (depending on your latitude, etc.), emphasizing communications and short trips. The lights trine Mars in Virgo (in direct motion now), providing improved health and energy, charging your batteries and revving up your engines. (One caution: since Mars opposes Neptune, you may have to conserve your energies and make sure to get to bed at a reasonable hour. You may also benefit from dance, rhythmic exercise or yoga.) They sextile Neptune in its home of Pisces, and since it will probably fall in people's first house, this emphasizes a glamorous sheen and artistic abilities.

They are inconjunct the North Node in Sag in the tenth house; I interpret the inconjunct as “the worm turns” and those who have been without a job will obtain a pretty nice position. You may even hit on a measure of fame. The lights are also conjunct Ceres at 4 degrees Taurus, promising fresh starts and productive projects. Mercury and Uranus are conjunct in the second house, providing a lot of mental energy and stimulation about how to make, harness and manage your resources. (They are in semi-sextile aspect to the lights.) It is also nice that all the planets are direct except Pluto (which spends a great deal of time retrograde anyway.)
