Your Milky Way Horoscope Dec. 16-22, 2012
By Milky Way Maid
Venus at zero degrees Sag squares Neptune in Pisces at 1:23 pm Sunday. Uh-oh, the flim-flam man breezes thru town and fleeces as many victims as he can. Hold onto your wallets, folks, and don't even lend money to friends who swear they will pay you back on payday.
Juno enters Capricorn at 10:26 pm Tuesday. Juno here can be both maternal and paternal, in a rather stern manner of parenting. This is not the parent who comforts the crying child but one who says, oh it isn't that bad, pick yourself up and get back in the game. This Juno is a rather good teacher, who communicates well and rewards desired behaviors. This teacher asks what the student learned from a failure, so that youngsters see that one progresses by eliminating efforts that do not bring the desired result.
The Sun enters Capricorn at 6:12 am Friday. Motivated by ambition, Capricorns want recognition and respect from others. Not for them is the virtue of laboring in silence or behind the scenes without credit or thanks. Sometimes they become fixed on being in control, a la Al Haig. Mature Capricorn personalities are able to encourage the organizational talents of others, and to delegate authority. Cappy has a deep respect for authority, and wishes to become one. Their speech may make use of classical allusions. Famous people with Sun in Capricorn include: actor Cary Grant, author Rudyard Kipling and scientists Louis Pasteur and Isaac Newton, and politicians Everett Dirksen, Ben Franklin, Barry Goldwater and Joseph Stalin.
Also the much-ballyhooed Winter Solstice of December 21, 2012 finally arrives with the Capricorn ingress – at 6:12 am Friday. It is accompanied by the Moon in Aries trine Mercury in Sag, Pallas at 25 Pisces trine North Node in Scorpio, Juno conjunct the Sun in Capricorn, Vesta opposite Mercury in Sag, and Chiron at 5 Pisces square Venus in Sag and trine Saturn in Scorpio. The mutable signs are obviously very stressed by the squares and oppositions. Water signs and fire signs may do best do to the Moon-Mercury trine in fire, and the multiple water trines. Sorry I cannot deal with this in depth in this format.

Readers can follow not only their Sun sign horoscope but also their Ascendant for further clues to how your week will develop. 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 – Juno and the Sun enter Capricorn this week, your solar tenth house; your hard work and organizational abilities gain you a room at the top. The Moon is in Aries from 2:43 am Thursday till Saturday afternoon. Midday Thursday can either be upsetting or bring a lightning-bolt of insight to your mind – or both. After lunch you arrange to trade favors with a friend. Thursday night brings an obsession with a problem; share it with a friend, who knows just how to resolve it. Friday morning brings enjoyable calls or visits with dear ones and relatives. Friday's Solstice Moon in your sign trines Mercury in Sag; you talk about things near and dear to your heart.
TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – Not all your friends can be trusted Sunday; take everything with a grain of salt. Juno and the Sun enter Capricorn this week, your solar ninth house; you may go back to school for career advancement. Friday's Solstice features North Node in opposite sign Scorpio, trined by Pallas; a friend who is an authority in her field helps point the way toward your future. The Moon is in Taurus from 1:25 pm Saturday thru the weekend. You may need a bit of a breather Saturday afternoon, possibly with a cuppa tea. If you are having a pre-dinner gathering at your house, everyone will be in a fine mood to be sociable. But send folks home early, as a late transit encourages people to over-indulge.
GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – You cannot be sure of the truth of what anyone is saying Sunday; best to take everything with a grain of salt. Juno and the Sun enter Capricorn this week, your solar eighth house; you may advance in fields related to biological sciences. Friday's Solstice features stressful oppositions and squares to your sign. You may have relationship challenges, but they can be helped with talking out your feelings in couples therapy.
CANCER - June 21-July 22 – A coworker may be jealous of a trip you are planning; it may be best to keep all details to yourself. Juno and the Sun enter Capricorn this week, your solar seventh house; your reliability helps you advance – also you may show concern for the underdogs. Friday's Solstice features the North Node in Scorpio trine Pallas in Pisces, and Saturn in Scorpio trine Chiron in Pisces – all this water-sign energy brings disciplined wisdom (Saturn) and personal growth (North Node) as well as mastery (Pallas) of your talents.
LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – A romantic interest may try to get his or her hands into family jewels, so to speak; best thing is to drop that person asap. Juno and the Sun enter Capricorn this week, your solar sixth house; you tend to the routine details of the office and keep it running like a top. Friday's Solstice has a Moon-Mercury trine in compatible fire signs, giving you extra effectiveness in communications and teaching. You may also find a supportive director or mentor in your creative pursuits.
VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Family members may try to fool each other Sunday; let's hope it is only over what Santa will bring each of you. Juno and the Sun enter Capricorn this week, your solar fifth house; you make a wonderfully professional caretaker of children, and consider it a career. Friday's Solstice features stressful oppositions and squares to your sign. Even tho no planets are in your sign, everything seems to converge on you, all eyes turn to you to fix everything. You may need both family therapy and couples therapy to help keep the family from fragmenting into a bunch of strangers, but your steadiness will help all of you get through it.
LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – A coworker may snitch items off another's desk; put away any valuables or better yet, take them home. Juno and the Sun enter Capricorn this week, your solar fourth house; you may work out of your home, possibly as a caterer of gourmet health foods. Friday's Solstice activates your writing or teaching talents (Mercury in Sag), and you might even become something of an authority on carrying on a career from home.
SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – A romantic interest may turn into a flim-flam man Sunday; steer clear. Juno and the Sun enter Capricorn this week, your solar third house; you are quite an organizer and multi-tasker, possibly rousing people in your neighborhood to sign petitions to get a street fixed. Friday's Solstice features stressful oppositions and squares to your money houses; you may need a financial counselor or advisor to wade through everything.

Friday's Solstice features stressful oppositions and squares to your sign. Family problems may be based in differences in personal values, but therapy will be helpful.
CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – A relative may not have your best interest at heart Sunday; take everything with a grain of salt. Juno and the Sun enter Capricorn this week, your solar first house; you prefer simple, classic clothing and hairstyles, and prefer things that will last. Friday's winter solstice may bring a relative who introduces you to one of his neighbors, someone who can help point the way to creating a more personally rewarding life.
AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The week begins with the Moon in Aquarius, till Monday night. Sunday morn (6:30-ish) will not find you in a warm-fuzzy mood; however, 2 hours later is a very different story, when Jupiter can bring the urge to expand horizons. Midday Sunday does not favor signing contracts or doing anything that affects your temporarily afflicted money houses – don't even lend money to friends. Friday's Solstice features stressful oppositions and squares to your money houses; you may need a financial counselor or advisor to wade through everything.
PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – Venus squares Neptune after lunch on Sunday; someone may give you the old flim-flam. The Moon is in Pisces from 7:48 pm Monday till early Thursday. Monday night favors having movie night at home, since you will tend to get lost again driving about. Tuesday morn you may receive a guilt trip but anyway, it forces you to buckle down. Try to avoid blowing things out of proportion midday. Your energy Wednesday night may be at its best all week; you can get lots of holiday prep done.
