Your Milky Way Horoscope Dec. 9-15, 2012
By Milky Way Maid
December 9 is Hanukkah.
Mercury enters Sag at 8:40 pm Monday. Mercury is in its detriment in Sag, since it rules opposite-sign Gemini. This means that for some people, Mercury is SO uncomfortable there, it may actually act as if it were in Gemini. (This is an insight for which I thank Dave Roell of AstroAmerica – please buy his books!) Mercury in Sag can jump to hasty conclusions without any supporting facts. However, in those Sag's whose Mercury operates as if in Gemini, there is an adeptness in handling numbers in either theoretical or practical levels – plus a quick mind and quick wit. Concentration can be lacking, but instinct can be unerring. Can shoot themselves in the foot when they blurt out whatever is at the top of their minds. Do not appoint these people to diplomatic posts! Famous people with Mercury in Sag include: Frank Sinatra, writers Rudyard Kipling and JD Salinger, composer and gambler Jule Styne, playwright Eugene Ionesco, Charles de Gaulle, Willy Brandt, doomed queen Marie Antoinette, doomed mystic Joan of Arc, and the brilliant Sir Isaac Newton.
Mercury at zero degrees Sag squares Neptune in a very confused Pisces at 7:57 am Tuesday. The mutable signs (Sag, Pisces, Gemini and Virgo) are likely to be most affected by this transit, and indeed all signs should be extra cautious in driving, and extra careful in their writing and speech. This is a very confusing aspect and people are likely to get their signals mixed pretty badly. The stock market can be especially volatile.
Uranus goes direct at 7:02 am Thursday, at 4 degrees, 37' of Aries. As I have written before, citing Dane Rudhyar, periods when Uranus is retrograde gives us an opportunity to challenge the ego structure (Saturn), and make our unique individuality an expression of God. The Skyview Zone website (by Stephanie Clement) has a really good reference article on the retrogrades of all the planets, too – altho it is more oriented towards describing retrogrades in the natal chart. She says Uranus retrograde people feel that they are different, go out of their way to upset the status quo, and/or has a difficult time finding a niche in society.
Venus enters Sag at 11:38 pm Saturday. Venus is not particularly at home in Sag, much preferring to ensconce herself in softer signs like Taurus, Libra, and Pisces. When a Sag loves, it can be brilliant but impermanent. Their attention span is a little lacking, so they may be branded as fickle when they are merely indulging a need for variety. Venus here can be surprisingly demanding of perfection as well as idealism (if only in the form of lip service). Makes a MUCH better friend than lover or spouse. As a friend he is wonderfully loyal and affectionate. Has no desire to sacrifice himself for love, nor even to tie himself down. Famous people with Venus in Sag include: Cary Grant, Johnny Carson, authors Lewis Carroll and Rudyard Kipling (the latter called a newspaper his mistress), Gen. Douglas MacArthur, humorist James Thurber, Joan Baez, and Jane Fonda.
