Your Milky Way Horoscope Aug. 5-11, 2012

By Milky Way Maid

Venus enters caring Cancer at 9:43 am Tuesday
. Venus in the sign of the Crab can be sensitive to the point of being a nuisance – the kind of person who whines that “but I'm so sensitive, you hurt my feeling when you say that!” – they can become impossible to deal with in the workplace if they take everything personally. On the other hand they have a great talent for recognizing the feelings of others, for nurturing, and soothing, and smoothing ruffled feathers.

Venus in Cancer can be a rather passive sign in that they sometimes do not go out looking for love, altho they are able to receive when it comes to them. This holds true unless there are aspects to natal Mars or Uranus. Venus in Cancer is very home-loving to the point where they may prefer to stay at home or work from home. Children with this placement can be difficult to kick out of the nest, since they make themselves useful in the kitchen and in general. Famous people with Venus in Cancer include: ballerina Margot Fonteyn, NY guv Nelson Rockefeller, crooner Dean Martin, former president Harry Truman, trumpeter Louis Armstrong, Constantine of Greece, Princess Anne, “happy warrior” Hubert Humphrey, and author William Styron.

Yay, Mercury goes direct at 1:40 am Wednesday! Mercury will be at 1 degree, 28' of Leo when it stations. BTW I missed putting up one of my columns the week Mercury went retrograde square to natal Mercury – I had started it and then forgot I still had to finish it. Please accept my humble apologies if I missed a week that was crucial to you.

Venus at 1 degree Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces at 6:34 pm Thursday. This is very much an in-love-with-love aspect, so don't believe everything a charmer tells ya. Can make you feel a bit spacey, depending on your natal aspects. Great for creativity in the arts, tho it could be fueled by alcohol. Just don't drive under this aspect if you can help it.

Jupiter is conjunct Vesta at 11 degrees Gemini on Sunday, effective all week. Jove and Vesta are both pretty spiritual planets, with Vesta just being more private about it. You may decide on performing some personal ritual on a regular basis, possibly a New Moon or Full Moon meditation, or a Templar ritual, or something of the sort. Send out a ring of light at the end of the ritual to help heal the world.
