Your Milky Way Horoscope April 29-May 5, 2012
By Milky Way Maid The Sun at 9 degrees Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn at 9:34 am Sunday. Time to focus on your goals and on taking back control of your life. Use affirmations or other techniques to help you re-program your brain for what you want to accomplish. Vesta enters Taurus at 12:48 pm Monday. Vesta in Taurus is torn between duty and personal desires. They may want one thing, and feel compelled to sacrifice themselves on an alter and do another thing. It's a period when natives may spread themselves pretty thin doing too much – taking care of a parent, for example, while working in a demanding career. Or a native may cancel a vacation to take over a soup kitchen in an emergency. They enjoy baking bread and being a real Earth Mother. Mercury at 21 degrees Aries sextiles Venus in Gemini at 11 pm Thursday. It becomes easier to talk about your affection for another person – holding hands is fun. We enjoy a leisurely drive to see spring color. Recharge your batteries by visiting nature or indulging your creative side – the hands (Mercury, Gemini) are more adept and skillful. We have a Full Moon at 11:35 pm Saturday. The Sun-Moon opposition is not exact at the time the Kentucky Derby is run that afternoon. However, the Mercury-Saturn opposition at 24 degrees Aries/Libra is in effect all day. I think the experts (Saturn) will see the results of the race come out very different from what they expected. The news (Mercury) will be totally different from what they projected; expect the unexpected. I have given up putting out my analysis of this race, since there was little interest in it. And that Mercury opposition to Saturn I mentioned above. This kind of opposition is where your way of thinking runs up against a brick wall. You're told everything you ever believed is wrong, wrong, wrong. However, is great for finding a tutor, professor, or mentor who has a LOT to teach you. You'll hate this aspect, but you will learn so much you would have ignored otherwise. COOL LINK ALERT! Go to http://www.solarsystemscope.com/ for a view of our solar system and nearby stars.
