Your Milky Way Horoscope Dec. 30-Jan. 5, 2012
By Milky Way Maid
The Sun at 9 degrees Capricorn is sextile Saturn in Scorpio at 12:45 pm Sunday. You may be honored or recognized for an accomplishment, or you may feel a quiet satisfaction over what you have accomplished in the past year. It's OK to pat yourself on the back. You might also confer with a mentor or older person today.
Mercury enters Capricorn at 9:03 am Monday. Mercury in Capricorn is so determined to be an authority in his field that he will even maintain the pretense of knowing all the answers. He will sound pedantic and artificial, even moralistic. And that will tend to undermine his real authority unless he matures to the point of being able to share information. He can foster an atmosphere of sharing data that helps everyone to advance to a level of competence if not mastery. This Mercury is capable of concentrating an issue very deeply and at length. Has an excellent memory like his opposite sign, Cancer. If this Mercury is in good aspect with Saturn, can indicate ability in the sciences. Famous people with Mercury in Capricorn include: Louis Pasteur, Douglas MacArthur, Ronald Reagan, Barry Goldwater and Margaret Chase Smith.
Mars at 4 degrees Aquarius is sextile Uranus in Aries at 9:31 pm Monday. Mars-Uranus aspects can denote accidents, and the sextile means these might be lucky accidents, such as serendipitous discoveries. You are spontaneous in a way that seems inspired or even brilliant. But make an effort to get those brilliant thoughts onto paper before they evaporate.
Mercury at 4 degrees Capricorn square Uranus in Aries at 11:30 am Thursday. Mercury-Uranus aspects generally affect electrical, electronic, or mechanical items, and the square can mean repairs are due. We feel like a bit of a rebel today, and step out of our ruts. We could also get news (Mercury) that is shocking or surprising (Uranus) so hold on to your hats.
Mars at 7 degrees Aquarius trine Jupiter in Gemini at 7:46 am Friday. Mars-Jupiter trines are great ones for taking risks, although air signs might be content to merely do so on paper only. In general, people are more willing to step outside their comfort zones and test themselves against the competition. We win more than we lose in sports or gambling – but only if this favorably aspects natal planets or cusps!

By April the caretaking relationship should have cleared up or become unnecessary. Chiron in your sign also squares Jupiter in Gemini, repeating the themes.
