Your Milky Way Horoscope May 6-12, 2012

By Milky Way Maid Mercury enters Taurus at 1:14 am Wednesday. Mercury in the sign of the Bull can have a mental block about accepting the value of other people's ideas. But once he does give as much value to other's ideas as his own, he can move forward and develop his own projects, etc. Tends to learn best from actual experience so help your Taurus child to do simple home experiments. Mercury in Taurus can be gifted at math, music, finance, art collecting, jewelry and other objects of beauty. People born with Mercury in Taurus include: Margot Fonteyn (ballet), Henry Fonda, Barbra Streisand, Richard Wagner, J William Fulbright, Henry Luce, Otto Klemperer (conducting), Perry Como, Bing Crosby, Willem de Kooning (art), Willie Mays (baseball). Mars is inconjunct Uranus in Aries at 2:45 am Tuesday. The inconjunct is an awkward aspect which demands that one adjust in some way. Uranus is electrical and mechanical – I am thinking some of us may have to rewire their homes or offices – or simply move some plugs to avoid overloading any one circuit. There is a chance of a breakthrough in energy supplies. Mercury at 2 degrees Taurus sextiles Neptune in Pisces at 6 pm Thursday. You may catch yourself day-dreaming today, but that's OK. You can latch onto insights into others that you would never arrive at in any “logical” way. Intuition is activated – and this is useful on many levels: trying to understand what a note means, or trying to figure out where your receiver will be on the football field. Go with the flow. The Sun will conjunct Jupiter at 23 degrees Taurus on Sunday, May 13. Just giving you a heads up on this. Should be pretty significant for most earth signs and fixed signs even if you don't have a natal planet in exact aspect. Wonderful opportunities could open up – look around you. COOL LINK ALERT!

Your Milky Way Horoscope April 29-May 5, 2012

By Milky Way Maid The Sun at 9 degrees Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn at 9:34 am Sunday. Time to focus on your goals and on taking back control of your life. Use affirmations or other techniques to help you re-program your brain for what you want to accomplish. Vesta enters Taurus at 12:48 pm Monday. Vesta in Taurus is torn between duty and personal desires. They may want one thing, and feel compelled to sacrifice themselves on an alter and do another thing. It's a period when natives may spread themselves pretty thin doing too much – taking care of a parent, for example, while working in a demanding career. Or a native may cancel a vacation to take over a soup kitchen in an emergency. They enjoy baking bread and being a real Earth Mother. Mercury at 21 degrees Aries sextiles Venus in Gemini at 11 pm Thursday. It becomes easier to talk about your affection for another person – holding hands is fun. We enjoy a leisurely drive to see spring color. Recharge your batteries by visiting nature or indulging your creative side – the hands (Mercury, Gemini) are more adept and skillful. We have a Full Moon at 11:35 pm Saturday. The Sun-Moon opposition is not exact at the time the Kentucky Derby is run that afternoon. However, the Mercury-Saturn opposition at 24 degrees Aries/Libra is in effect all day. I think the experts (Saturn) will see the results of the race come out very different from what they expected. The news (Mercury) will be totally different from what they projected; expect the unexpected. I have given up putting out my analysis of this race, since there was little interest in it. And that Mercury opposition to Saturn I mentioned above. This kind of opposition is where your way of thinking runs up against a brick wall. You're told everything you ever believed is wrong, wrong, wrong. However, is great for finding a tutor, professor, or mentor who has a LOT to teach you. You'll hate this aspect, but you will learn so much you would have ignored otherwise. COOL LINK ALERT! Go to http://www.solarsystemscope.com/ for a view of our solar system and nearby stars.

Your Milky Way Horoscope April 22-28, 2012

By Milky Way Maid The Sun at 2 degrees Taurus sextiles Neptune in Pisces at 5:18 am Sunday. A good day to express some Neptune energy into the world. Volunteer for a couple hours, go to church, express your ideals, funnel your creativity and imagination into an artistic project, etc. Mercury is conjunct Uranus at 6 degrees Aries at 4:29 pm Sunday. We get a great idea for a way to float an idea on the internet. A tweet just explodes into global consciousness. Ideas seem to float of their own accord from one's brain to the web to the world. Might not be a good time on the practical level since this much electrical energy could blow out fuses and transformers, dontcha think? The Sun at 4 degrees Taurus trines Mars in Virgo at 9 pm Monday. Neither Taurus nor Virgo is normally pictured as a 'ball of fire' but that could change temporarily under this transit. They could both pick up that ball and run with it right to the end zone. Good time to start a building project in particular. Likely expression would be a practical application of materials and information to create action with a tangible goal. Mercury at 9 degrees Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn at 10:51 am Wednesday. The ability to focus and “drill down” while researching issues can be awesome. Someone may try to coerce your thinking, or vice versa; ideological struggle. A time that favors digging beneath surface using psychology, astrology, tarot, or any related technique that probes beneath the surface. Some danger of obsessive thoughts, tho. The Sun conjunct Ceres at 6 degrees Taurus later in the week boosts your ability to tap into inner resources. You produce things that others want and need. The aspect is significant for getting centered (or grounded, very appropriate for an earth sign!) again so you move, act, and feel from your true inner self. The Sun at 8 degrees Taurus is sextile Chiron in Pisces Saturday. Taureans may benefit from water therapies such as sauna, whirlpool, or hot-and-cold-water treatments. Donating a bit of time to a local non-profit can be very rewarding. COOL LINK ALERT! Go to http://www.solarsystemscope.com/ for a view of our solar system and nearby stars.

ARIES - March 20-April 19 – You may not be a regular church-goer, but you may have a spiritual revelation of sorts Sunday morn. Those in a home-related business may see an uptick in sales or at least interest on Sunday and Friday. Wednesday may be stressful regarding a boss trying to pull a power trip on you. Shopping for the home is favored Thursday afternoon. TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus as the week begins, till midday Monday. Early Sunday favors a quiet time with a loved one, perhaps catching the sunrise at a scenic spot. You are in quite the generous mood midday Sunday, but try to stay within your means. The Sun-Mars trine Monday night favors sports and taking the initiative. You could receive a nice financial gift or reward late Tue. or early Wed. Your strong ideas about privacy could be challenged Wednesday. Thursday afternoon favors making overtures and exploring the neighborhood. GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 1:05 pm Monday till early Thursday. No aspects Monday afternoon so your workday likely poses no obstacles. You feel like going somewhere, anywhere, Monday night. The Moon conjunct Venus in your sign late Tuesday makes for a self-indulgent, or romantic, night. Say nyet to friends borrowing money late in the week. Mars favors asking some people over to watch the game Saturday night. CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Midday Sunday brings confidence as you reach out to friends or members of your club. Monday's dinner-hour brings some tension over your efforts to appear intelligent and educated; your own savvy gifts should be owned and cultivated. The Moon is back home in Cancer from 1:42 am Thursday till midday Saturday. Thursday morn brings a rewarding moment with the kids. Friday afternoon your spirits are buoyed by friends or charitable groups you belong to. LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Sunday morning favors recharging your batteries with a swim, or just being near water. Follow up on sales leads Monday night. Best day may be Tuesday when you are revved up with ideas. Tuesday's Moon-Jupiter conjunction in your career house favors promoting your company. The Moon enters Leo at 12:10 pm Saturday and remains there through the weekend. Saturday evening favors light exercise or games, or maybe a walk around the block with your mate. VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Monday's dinner-hour brings tension and disappointment not only regarding your mate, but others in general. We need ideals, but as a compass, not a measuring stick.

You may receive a company perk or bonus midweek. LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – You REALLY enjoy volunteering Sunday morning; just don't go bragging about it.

You enjoy playing in your “secret garden” Thursday – although the afternoon can be stressful in dealing with your mate or other partners. SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Spend Sunday morn working on a creative project; stretch those art muscles. Treat your mate to a luncheon Sunday to show how much you value him or her. You may have to give up your ideas of storybook romance over the Monday dinner-hour; your ideals may be challenged as totally unrealistic. Wednesday favors research and analysis; you can drill down to the crux of the matter. SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – You could be prone to overdo Sunday; remember, everything in moderation. Dinner hour Monday is Neptune-weird; you may have to accept that your family is not always there for you, not gonna be the Ozzie and Harriet ideal.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – You dote on the children Sunday. True communication may be the topic of dinner-house conversation Monday; you may be accused of being stiff and formal.

Your Milky Way Horoscope April 15-21, 2012

By Milky Way Maid

Mercury enters Aries at 6:42 pm Monday
. Mercury in Aries has a very witty and quick mind, although he may be too impatient to sit down and focus on lessons or homework. Parents may have to stand over them to make sure homework is done, possibly coaching them thru it. Mercury in Aries is kind of like in Leo because they both tend to order people around. It is far better to master the art of motivating people to reach the targets you draw on the chalkboard. And Aries can be very, very good at that. Use carrots instead of sticks, in other words.

Famous people with Mercury in Aries include Albert Einstein, Copernicus, Queen Elizabeth II, Will Shakespeare, Toscanini, Van Gogh, and many more.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all Taureans! The Sun enters Taurus at 12:12 pm Thursday. Jupiter is still in your sun-sign, so baby bulls should be lucky if a bit pudgy. See the notes on the New Moon for more . . .

A New Moon touches 1 and a half degrees of Taurus at 3:18 am Saturday, April 21. The Sun-Moon conjunction will probably be in your third house (depending on your latitude, etc.), emphasizing communications and short trips. The lights trine Mars in Virgo (in direct motion now), providing improved health and energy, charging your batteries and revving up your engines. (One caution: since Mars opposes Neptune, you may have to conserve your energies and make sure to get to bed at a reasonable hour. You may also benefit from dance, rhythmic exercise or yoga.) They sextile Neptune in its home of Pisces, and since it will probably fall in people's first house, this emphasizes a glamorous sheen and artistic abilities.

They are inconjunct the North Node in Sag in the tenth house; I interpret the inconjunct as “the worm turns” and those who have been without a job will obtain a pretty nice position. You may even hit on a measure of fame. The lights are also conjunct Ceres at 4 degrees Taurus, promising fresh starts and productive projects. Mercury and Uranus are conjunct in the second house, providing a lot of mental energy and stimulation about how to make, harness and manage your resources. (They are in semi-sextile aspect to the lights.) It is also nice that all the planets are direct except Pluto (which spends a great deal of time retrograde anyway.)

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - Sunday's Sun-Saturn opposition affects your solar fifth and eleventh houses; friends may not approve of your hobbies or artistic pursuits or your children. This can be very hard to take since they have no right to judge any of those things. Mercury enters your fifth house of career Monday, helping you dramatize all your communications. The New Moon in Taurus is a bit awkward for you, asking you to re-arrange the furniture, so to speak. It does favor creative pursuits and possibly a new career in art sales.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - Sunday's Sun-Saturn opposition affects your solar fourth and tenth house of balancing family and career; you love both but you need to make sure to schedule quality time with loved ones. Mercury enters your fourth house of home and family Monday, sensitizing you to the feelings of loved ones, and helping you address their concerns in a constructive way. The New Moon in an earth sign is very positive especially for legal disputes, since Mars is trine in the ninth house of law. The month favors breaking ground for building projects, either physical or intellectual.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Sunday's Sun-Saturn opposition affects your solar third and ninth houses of education and the internet; the server or computer may be down for hours. The Moon is in Aquarius until the wee hours Monday. Mercury enters your third house of relatives and daily life on Monday, emphasizing your ability to address the thoughts and motives of others quickly. The New Moon in Taurus, your solar fourth house, is positive for building a home altho you will incur debt (loan) because of it. Watch those mortgage fees like a hawk.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – Sunday's Sun-Saturn opposition affects your solar second and eighth houses of finances (personal and joint); you could run into a cash crunch if you haven't planned ahead. Mercury enters your second house of finances Monday, helping you to gainfully manipulate numbers and resources. The Moon is in Pisces from 1:38 am Monday till midday Wednesday. The New Moon in your solar third house favors new starts and short trips. The caution flag goes up re dealing with your mate, since he may not want you to travel alone or even together.

Your Milky Way Horoscope April 8-14, 2012

By Milky Way Maid

Happy Easter, everybody!
Venus at 5 degrees Gemini is sextile Uranus in Aries at 12:51 pm Monday. Venus-Uranus aspects put us into contact with strangers, people who speak foreign languages, or people with unusual (to us) ways of dressing, acting, thinking. The sextile denotes positive interactions, fondness – we may become dear friends with someone very different from ourselves.
Mercury at 26 degrees Pisces is inconjunct Saturn in Libra at 3:16 am Thursday. The inconjunct denotes having to alter something; sometimes this means rearranging the furniture (literally or metaphorically). So this aspect means that the experts, the pros (Saturn) are forced to alter the way they think about something, possibly to alter the way they measure something. In Pisces, the “thing” could be religious ideas, ideals vs “real life”, hope vs a Virgoan cool analysis, etc.
Mars at 3 degrees, 41' Virgo goes direct at 11:53 pm Friday. Times when planets go retrograde and direct are very important for us to take note of – and not just Mercury. Venus retrograde periods can denote a “change of heart”. The Jupiter retrograde period is a time to broaden the mind and raise one's consciousness. So with the Mars retrograde, it is a phase in which we – to the outer world, at least – seemed to slack off. But inside, we are recharging our batteries, and will return to the fray much refreshed and eager to get back to work-life-sports, etc. We may arrive at a new goal for ourselves, and apply all our new-found energies to achieving it. Note how the direct station degree contacts your natal planets. I have been ill during the retrograde (nothing major), and the direct station degree makes an aspect to my natal Mars, so I am rather looking forward to a renewal of energy very soon. Let's hope so, at least!
We are being a given a gift of two planetary stations within two weeks this month. Let's make a conscious effort to apply them to good, worthwhile projects and careers.
Venus at 9 degrees Gemini is inconjunct Pluto in Capricorn at 12:52 pm Saturday. Another inconjunct! Aaaeeiii! Compare to the inconjunct described above. Pluto is the “powers-that-be” which may be influences operating behind the scenes. Venus is values as well as love; Venus also rules the Dollar, sugar and other sweets, butter, cattle, music, art, fine furniture and cabinetry, etc. In other words, most of the things that make life comfortable. It could be that the modern robber barons feel they need to raise prices of certain commodities for an improved profit picture?
I started putting up some info related to the 2012 Election on a new Page on the Wordpress site. Have to dig up stuff on candidate birth dates and make up a few charts for them.
