Your Milky Way Horoscope Feb. 10-16, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
Mars at 6 degrees Pisces squares Jupiter in Gemini at 3:12 am Sunday. Mars-Jupiter squares are good for athletic events because the athletes reach down deep for their best effort – the emphasis is on Effort, which is one keyword for the square. In other areas, the square denotes risk-taking, as in gambling or in any other endeavor. You may be on quite a roll – at least until that one bad bet.
Venus at 11 degrees Aquarius squares Saturn in Scorpio at 1:42 am Monday. Venus square Saturn could be either “good” or “bad”, depending on your point of view and level of maturity. It can mean settling down with one's life partner in marriage. It could mean breaking off a relationship if one feels too confined in it. Since Venus also rules money, there may be financial pressures or burdens.
Mercury at 11 degrees Pisces trines Saturn in Scorpio at 2:15 pm Tuesday. Saturn rules science and Mercury rules logic, so a good Mercury-Saturn aspect can denote scientific thinking. You are ready to sit down and crunch those numbers, test your hypothesis, take a random sample, etc. Since Saturn also rules older people, you may have a productive chat (Mercury) with an older person, professor, or mentor.
Mars at 11 degrees Pisces trines Saturn in Scorpio at 11:14 am Saturday. Mars and Saturn both have something to do with the military or police forces, with getting organized, logistics, etc. Together they may denote planning of an assault force or SWAT team or other military or para-military group. For the rest of us, we may have success at keeping to our New Year's resolution, or making a new one to lose weight, for example, and stick to it.
We have a New Moon at 2:20 am Sunday, Feb. 10, at 21 degrees 43' of Aquarius. The Moon precedes the conjunction with the Sun (New Moon) with a square to Saturn in Libra, and follows the New Moon with a conjunction to Neptune in Pisces – both hard aspects to malefic planets. So we are forced to deduce this will be a hard and difficult New Moon, with some illness or suffering (Neptune) in the news. Let's hope that the current influenza strain does not get out of control. BTW it is also the Chinese New Year of the Snake.
