Your Milky Way Horoscope May 13-19, 2012
By Milky Way Maid The Sun is conjunct Jupiter at 23 degrees Taurus at 9:23 am Sunday. The Sun conjunct Jupiter generally puts one in a very confident and positive mood, eager to reach out to new people, travel, and master new subjects. Taurus may be more of an armchair tourist, more content to explore their own community and garden. You may enjoy indulging someone (besides yourself, I mean). It can be very lucky, even for people who are not normally lucky at all. Mercury at 8 degrees Taurus trines Mars in Virgo at 4:54 pm Sunday. Good for projects where good hand-eye coordination is needed, or working with heat or fire. Examples: crafts, sports, metal-working, surgery, glass-blowing, welding. Mercury-Mars aspects can spark heated discussion (OK, argument), and some of us may even initiate lawsuits under this aspect. Words excite us, for good or ill. Venus goes retrograde at 23 degrees, 59' of Gemini at 10:33 am Tuesday. Matters related to money or love can see reversals. The period when Venus is retrograde may see us have a “change of heart” about something or someone. Your values get examined, and maybe you decide to try to elevate people values above you money values – or vice versa if Venus is stressed by aspects. Mars at 9 degrees Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn at 12:28 pm Wednesday. This is a great aspect to have touching the chart of a marathon runner or tri-athlete. One can dig deep for that extra bit of energy and will to complete a goal, cross the finish line, or vanquish an opponent. Juno enters Scorpio at 2:15 am Thursday. The bad part about Juno in ol' Scorp is that open communications are difficult for them – natives with this placement may definitely prefer the strong, SILENT type. Privacy is high on their list of values; this means that private discussions should stay private (not blabbed around to all your women friends or guy pals). Juno here has high standards for self and others, and generally lives up to her obligations. Juno is retrograde at the beginning of this transit, and after it goes direct again it will move into Sag in mid-September. Pallas Athena enters Aries at 12:18 am Friday. This would seem like the natural home of Pallas, since in legend she sprang from the head of her father, Zeus. However, Pallas in Aries has a real problem with following through. Starts a dozen projects and finishes maybe one. Her head is so filled with ideas that it is hard to translate more than a fraction of them into concrete reality. Perhaps she needs a team under her, such as an R&D team, or a large staff, to help her realize all her potential. Drives herself hard and can benefit from doing handcrafts as a hobby or sideline – can innovate with new techniques or unusual materials. Pallas will be in Aries till the beginning of October, when it retrogrades into Pisces again. Looking ahead, the Sun enters Gemini on May 20, and promptly goes into a Solar Eclipse at zero degrees Gemini. The Solar Eclipse is exact at 7:23 pm; the New Moon is exact at 7:47 pm. The Moon is conjunct Jupiter before eclipsing the Sun, and then its first aspect after that is a square to Neptune in Pisces. I may be wrong but I think that people with natal planets in the first degree of the mutable signs should be very cautious about their health. Go to the doc if nagging symptoms won't go away.
