Your Milky Way Horoscope Dec. 2-8, 2012

By Milky Way Maid

The Sun at 11 degrees Sag opposes retrograde Jupiter in Gemini at 8:45 pm Sunday. Sun-Jupiter oppositions usually makes people overextend themselves, but only then can they see the error of their ways and start to put their budgets and their lives in balance. If these planets contact your natal planets or anything in the second house of finances, don't be surprised if your credit card is maxed out. 
 
Ceres enters Gemini at 4:05 am Tuesday. Ceres in Gemini makes a natural teacher who loves to work with all children, but especially those with learning problems. The rest of us may become more interested in health foods and living in balance with the earth. This placement also helps us become better neighbors to each other, since we are more willing to share what we have.

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 – You could be a spokesperson or the interviewee on Sunday. Fire signs glow Monday night under a Sun-Moon trine; generate ideas and initiate party organization. Ceres enters your solar third house this week, helping you become more tolerant and inclusive. You may even talk to your plants and pets. Your ambition is fired up on Thursday. Your mate may be stuck on the holiday newsletter but you are undaunted and get it done very creatively.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Sun-Jupiter opposition may mean you reach credit limits, but it could also mean relief if you visit your banker and switch to a more appropriate account. Also savers dip into the Christmas fund this week. You mate may feel frustrated Monday at work, help him talk about it. You may have to disburse funds to family members Monday night for assorted school projects. Ceres enters your solar second house this week, helping you to grow your bank account and also to express your abundant creativity in plants or crafts.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – You get a good laugh from the radio DJ's on Monday's morning commute. Ceres enters your sign this week, where it will remain until the first week of April in 2013. You may find yourself adopting simpler styles of dress or wearing less makeup. It's a battle Wednesday to catch up with changes in orders or specs. Friends have a rebellious streak on Friday night. Saturday morning may be the best time for air signs to generate ideas or crunch the numbers.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Moon is in Cancer this week but only till Sunday night. Those who stayed up late last Saturday may spend time writing in their journals. You draw on a secret stash for holiday money, but wait till after Tuesday because some surprises may come up. Friday night favors a night at a comedy. Saturday night can be a bit strenuous, so ask for help with the holiday decorating. Ceres enters your solar twelfth house, giving you mental strength for volunteering at hospitals or other institutions.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon is in Leo from 8:57 pm Sunday till Wednesday morn. Sunday night you may be inspired to make your own little movie from the bits you've recorded over the past year; this might possibly be your holiday newsletter in video form. You may hear that ugly word NO again mid-morning on Monday. Fire signs glow Monday night under a Sun-Moon trine; generate ideas and initiate party organization. Tuesday can be stressful emotionally when you can't seem to communicate what you mean. Ceres enters your solar eleventh house, helping you bring people together in charitable projects, and easing people into the right slot for their talents.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – You may suffer a cutback in workplace perks or benefits this week. The Moon is in Virgo from 6:51 am Wednesday till midday Friday. The Wednesday morn commute can be chaotic; have a backup route in mind if needed. You may work late to make up lost time. Thursday presents a mixed bag, but you have ample energy for assigned tasks. Early Friday favors reaching people you need to speak to. Ceres enters your solar tenth house, requiring hard and diligent work from those in executive positions.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from 1:35 pm Friday till next Sunday. Friday night is the “fighting City Hall” syndrome, when the rebel in you strikes back. Saturday morn you may need to repeat an affirmation to get going on all you need to do, but you can do it. The morning is much more favorable for getting breaks and cooperation, but the evening is marked by false starts. Ceres enters your solar ninth house, raising interest in camping or hiking as vacation options, or in taking practical courses for career applications.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Tuesday can be very frustrating when writing or relating to loved ones. You may have a very creative imagination Wednesday but keep your mind on traffic during the commute. Saturn in your sign helps you get all the holiday chores done one at a time; this week you get the Christmas cards addressed or the newsletter written – probably on Friday. Ceres enters Gemini, your solar eighth house, and you may find yourself more involved in healing yourself with natural foods and herbs.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – A day of reckoning may come on Sunday; may sure you have ready cash if the tyme machine is out of order. Fire signs glow Monday night under a Sun-Moon trine; generate ideas and initiate party organization. Don't take your energy level for granted on Thursday; if you pace yourself, you get a second wind mid-morning. Home remains chaotic and you will have to learn to manage household chores more efficiently. Ceres enters your opposite sign, and you have to admit that your partner may be the teacher, and you the student.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Cappy doesn't put too much stock in all the holiday excess, but they do want their families to have the best of everything. Shopping becomes very efficient when they march in just for one item and quickly find their target. You are most energetic Thursday morning, but help with a large project is not forthcoming. Ceres enters your solar sixth house, making you more concerned with staying in touch with nature as a healing force. You may add plants to the home or office, or spend more time in the country.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Monday morning is frustrating, but the evening favors good times with friends. It is hard to get the words out Tuesday for the newsletter or reports, but Friday is more favorable for that. Saturday morning may be the best time for air signs to generate ideas or crunch the numbers. Ceres enters your solar fifth house this week, increasing your ability to heal and soothe others as well as yourself. You may relax with bird watching or country walks with the dog.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – You may suffer a cutback in workplace perks or benefits this week; try to find low cost substitutes on the open market. You and your mate may get signals crossed Wednesday morn so verify what the plan is. You can get a lot done with a friend's help or advice Thursday morn.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Nov. 25 - Dec. 1, 2012

By Milky Way Maid

On Monday the Sun at 4 degrees Sag is trine Uranus in Aries at 9:15 am, and Venus is conjunct Saturn at 6 degrees Scorpio at 8:19 pm. Sun-Uranus trines help us to express our individuality; it gives us a rush of freedom of expression and action – and occuring in a fire sign, this really amps up the energy and draws others along with us, Pied-Piper-fashion. The Venus-Saturn conjunction tends to depress spending, although we do part with a dollar if we find a good deal on something we have researched. So we will see two very different energies and two very different shoppers in the morning and at night Monday – one will be very impulsive and blow the budget, and the other one will be very studious about comparing prices. Venus-Saturn might also represent social-value spending, spending in line with a social goal like buying green, buying local, buying union-made or American-made. 
 
Mercury goes direct at 5:48 pm Monday – at 4 degrees, 14' of Sag. OK, you can start your holiday shopping now, tho you might not get as great a discount as under the Mercury retrograde. Sure, sure, I know you have to look at the stuff carefully under the retrograde, but man oh man was it fun to shop and dig thru bins of stuff!! 
 
We have a Full Moon at 9:46 am Wednesday, accompanied by a Lunar Eclipse at 6 degrees, 40' Gemini at 9:33 am the same day. I just don't relate to Gemini very well so I cannot describe a Gemini eclipse well – but I can say that it will accent communications and daily life. The Moon, approaching Jupiter, sextiles Uranus in Aries, and is inconjunct Mars-Pluto in Capricorn on one side and inconjunct Venus (cash and gifts) in Scorpio on the other side. I think that the general public (Moon) will change its attitudes and usage of credit (Mars) during this holiday shopping season, perhaps favoring old-fashioned plans like layaway or something like that. This would cause huge ripples thru the finance industry if that happened, since so many institutions rely on the inflow of interest income for their survival. Perhaps some deals on electronics (Uranus) will be so cheap that customers can afford to pay cash for them. Maybe some gifts will be truly from the heart rather than some glitzy thing pushed by the big-box stores. The Lunar Eclipse lasts over six hours so its effects may last over six months.

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 – The Moon is in Aries for a few hours Sunday morning, making no aspects. Fire signs enjoy the Sun-Uranus trine on Monday, when they feel free and express their uniqueness. Tuesday afternoon may see an important milestone regarding your employer. The Wednesday eclipse accents your solar third house of relatives and writing; you may write down childhood experiences, and incidentally become more involved in local projects.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from 7:18 am Sunday till Tuesday night. Taureans might go for an early swim Sunday to work off some of that fine Turkey day feast. Your spouse may be terribly neglected if you have to go off to work Sunday, but if you stayed home you probably would be ignored anyway. You are totally absorbed in tasks Monday. The Wednesday eclipse accents your solar second house of finances; you draw up an actual budget possibly for the first time, and rationally manage your accounts to save more.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 7:58 pm Tuesday till Friday morn. Confusion reigns Tuesday night; verify directions before looking for a new address. Wednesday eclipse in your sign heralds having to change your attitudes about money and debt. This may mean shopping smarter, it may mean cutting up credit cards, it may mean erasing old debts. You may have to edit documents on Thursday. On Friday you may begin a seasonal job for a second paycheck.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Monday night is rather depressing if the kids make other plans for the holiday feast; insist they spend at least part of the day with family. The Wednesday eclipse may make it hard to keep secrets secret, so don't expect to be able to hide the holiday gifts till Christmas! Your spiritual needs also expect to be met, and this may mean restoring family rituals and traditions to the holidays. The Moon is back home in Cancer from 8:55 am Friday till next Sunday night. You may go on strike Friday night – you skip making dinner and demand a night out, refusing to do anything while you are taken for granted!

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 –Venus and Saturn are in your solar fourth house this winter; you may take comfort in beloved family traditions, and impatiently await the reunions that come later than you planned. Fire signs enjoy the Sun-Uranus trine on Monday, when they feel free and express their uniqueness. The Wednesday eclipse accents your solar eleventh house of friends and clubs; a greater spirit of brotherly love takes hold, and you may wish to devote some time this holiday to volunteering and to charity.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Sunday and Monday may be your best days this week when the Moon is in compatible Taurus. Still you may be disappointed Sunday if travel plans fall through or are delayed. The Wednesday eclipse accents your solar tenth house of career; you may feel you are at a turning point in your career, and may seek a more public life possibly in order to have greater influence on events in your community or state. Plan on cooking up a storm Saturday, and expressing yourself creatively in other ways as well.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - Tuesday afternoon may see an important milestone regarding your family, with an addition to the clan a distinct possibility. The Wednesday eclipse accents your solar ninth house of law and higher education; you may experience a greater yearning to travel or to study the eternal questions of life in your search for meaning. This is further accented by the Moon-Jupiter conjunction the same night.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 -A sense of rebellion could make you blow your budget Monday, but please resist! On Monday night, you may be quite despondent if you cannot be where you want to be for the holiday; create a video newsletter to send your best wishes to all your loved ones. The Wednesday eclipse accents your solar eighth house of final matters; you may become interested in what kind of legacy you leave your children, or you may take up the family business that you had spurned till now.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 -Fire signs enjoy the Sun-Uranus trine on Monday, when they feel free and express their uniqueness. Tuesday afternoon may see an important milestone regarding a financial situation. The Wednesday eclipse accents your solar seventh house of partners; marriage or divorce may soon follow this transit, or singles may decide that marriage isn't so bad after all and begin the search for a life partner. The Juno-Vesta opposition this week accents that issue even more.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Let the kids spend time at their friends' homes Sunday; you will probably insist they be home for the holiday dinner. Tuesday afternoon may see an important milestone affecting you personally. The Wednesday eclipse accents your solar sixth house of health and work; you may feel a need to be of greater service to society, or a need to take better care of your self, or a need to improve job conditions.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Duty calls on Monday, when you may have to work very late. The Wednesday eclipse accents your solar fifth house of children and creativity; greater enjoyment of life can follow this eclipse, and a greater spiritual awareness can add another level of meaning to existing close relationships. Thursday dinner with loved ones is important to you to balance out all the working hours this week. Friends may be in a creative phase on Saturday but you enjoy watching or helping out.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – You may be very frustrated Monday night if news arrives that some family members may not be able to arrive in time for the holiday feast. Confusion reigns Tuesday night; verify directions before looking for a new address. The Wednesday eclipse accents your solar fourth house of home and family; you desire to spend more time at home, and you may become more involved with family issues to the degree that you give up a career.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Nov. 18-24, 2012

By Milky Way Maid

I hit on what I think Obama's void-of-course moon in his announcement chart and in his inauguration chart mean (especially the former). I believe that the void-of-course moon is great for long-shot chances. If you have a cause that you believe is worthy but hasn't a snowball's chance in you-know-what, you would do well to make your formal announcement or create a website for it during the void-of-course moon. I have come to this conclusion after watching several sports events over the course of several years, and have come to this realization in the past few weeks. THIS is why it was actually very fortunate for the erstwhile congressman Obama to declare his candidacy for president during the void-of-course moon; he was well aware of the huge obstacles he had to overcome in order to win the White House. (I am not saying that long-shots only win during a void-of-course moon, I am saying that it is more likely to happen during a void-of-course moon.)

The Sun enters Sagittarius at 4:50 pm Wednesday, Nov. 21. As one of the dual signs, Sag natives are of two minds as to how they want others to think of them. One is as an intellectual authority, and the other is as the clown. I find it puzzling that they really expect to have it both ways. Some Sag natives alienate others by demanding that others agree with them, a habit that does them a disservice because they need the input of others to refine their ideas. A higher Sag nature is able to inspire others, which is the real strength of the fire signs. Sag is able to recognize the importance of others' contributions and give others a moment in the spotlight. Sag generally has a great love of democratic freedoms, with friends in every walk of life. Their weakness is a lack of steady application to a project or course of study, tending to be too sporadic or impulsive in their efforts. Famous people with Sun in Sag include: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., James Thurber, Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, Patty Duke, Joe DiMaggio, and both Caroline and John Kennedy, Jr. 
 
Venus enters passionate, committed Scorpio at 8:20 pm Wednesday. The lower Scorpio natures can be very controlling, but a mature Scorpio personality uses this Venus energy to uncover the hidden talents of others and bring those talents to the awareness of their possessors. A Scorpio can feel a huge sense of satisfaction when a child or student of theirs achieves something with talents they have helped to develop. Famous people with Venus in Scorpio include: Marie Antoinette, Joan Sutherland, Mary Martin, David McCallum, Andy Williams, Mohandas Gandhi, Billy Graham, Robert Vaughn, Sophia Loren, and Vladimir Horowitz. 
 
Keeping an eye on the asteroids, Pallas Athena goes direct at 8:24 pm Tuesday, at 22 degrees, 26' of Pisces. Pallas will hurry thru Pisces and enter Aries on Jan. 10, 2013. Pallas in Pisces can be both a warrior for social causes and a dedicated wife.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Nov. 11-17, 2012

By Milky Way Maid

Neptune has a direct station at 2:52 am Sunday morning, at zero degrees, 22 minutes of Pisces. I mentioned this in last week's column, where I said that I hoped the inspiration and spiritual insights gained during the retrograde, would be retained and carried forward during the direct motion of this planet. 
 
Mercury enters Scorpio at 2:42 am Wednesday. Mercury gains a very penetrating quality while in this super-analytical sign. Mercury here just doesn't feel safe about sharing a lot of personal info; no danger of TMI here! Needs to learn to introduce themselves with a little bio in a way that they are comfortable with. Has the ability to see the heart behind the words, and needs to learn to trust that intuition. Scorpio can use words to either cut someone down or to debate like a champ. This Mercury is best engaged in analysis, research, criminal investigations or forensics. Famous people with Mercury in Scorpio include: Mohandas Gandhi, Martin Luther, Winston Churchill, Felix Frankfurter, Johnny Carson, Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde, Jonas Salk and Billy Graham. 
 
Mars enters Capricorn at 9:36 pm Friday. Mars in Cappy is very strong – this is a good placement for an athletic stamina or anyone with a physically demanding job. The annoying part about Mars here is the overwhelming ambition and concern with social prestige. They develop leadership when they are able to encourage others to achieve their ambitions; also they can be very, very good in working for a large organization. Famous people with Mars in Capricorn include: John Wayne, Louis Pasteur, Rex Harrison, Thomas Mann, Thomas Edison, Walt Disney, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and Albert Einstein. 
 
Chiron goes direct at almost exactly 5 degrees of Pisces at 3:37 pm Wednesday. Chiron in the sign of the feet has been afflicting the lower extremities since early February 2011, so Pisceans will have to cope with this a while longer. Everyone needs to take good care of their feet, and make sure to wear well-fitted and supportive footwear. 
 
We have a Solar Eclipse at 11 degrees, 57 minutes of Scorpio. At 5:17 pm Tuesday. (this is on a New Moon) It is accompanied by Mercury in Sag square to Neptune in Pisces, an aspect with two possible effects. One is, people will be confused and not understand what is being said until the transit is over; this makes it easy for others to deceive us, so do not sign contracts or other legal papers. The other is manifested as heightened sensitivity and intuition. Study of metaphysical matters is favored, BUT be sure to be well grounded when re-entering the “real” world!
