Your Milky Way Horoscope Feb. 24-March 2, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
The Sun at 7 degrees Pisces squares Jupiter in Gemini at 5:26 pm Monday. Sun square Jove can mean too much of a good thing, so don't go pigging out at the buffet or drinking yourself into a stupor.
Venus enters Pisces at 9:03 pm Monday. Venus in Pisces can have a real desire to ease the suffering of others, to the point where they may actually have healing abilities. Their gift of empathy might allow others to take advantage of them, altho some older Pisceans become hard and gruff as a result. The mature Pisces sees past rules and laws to the spiritual level of relationships, and heals disharmony accordingly. One should be careful around some super-Pisces, tho, who drag someone down into a hospital bed even if that person is healthy as a horse, in order that they may have the pleasure of saving him or her. They are much better when channeling their sensitivities into the arts. Famous people with Venus in Pisces include: Leontyne Price, Shirley MacLaine, author Victor Hugo, George Washington, Ted Kennedy, Sandra Dee, comedian Danny Kaye, Carol Burnett, Adlai Stevenson, Martin Luther King Jr., George Harrison, Sidney Poitier and Vincent Van Gogh.
Also on Monday, note there is a Full Moon at 7 degrees, 24' Virgo at 3:26 pm. With the Moon opposite Sun-Neptune, we really do need the giftie of seeing ourselves as other see us, because we haven't a clue! Further muddling things is that we do not clearly see what our real needs are at the moment. The lights also square Jupiter in Gemini (where Jupiter is weak), where we give in to excess rather than being lifted up by higher consciousness. Just be extra careful not to drink and drive.
Mercury at 19 degrees Pisces is conjunct Mars at 4:09 am Tuesday, a volatile combination that often starts arguments or fights for no good reason. And with Mercury retrograde, one may be totally off base on one's facts and have to eat one's words.
Venus is conjunct Neptune at 3 degrees Pisces at 8:37 am Thursday. Venus-Neptune combos can mean being “in love with love”, falling for a shifty type, or other illusory types of love. Fortunately, the Moon is void-of-course almost all day, so nothing will come of any of Cupid's errant arrows.
The Sun at 11 degrees Pisces trines Saturn in Scorpio at 3:31 pm Friday. Sun-Saturn trines can bring honors or recognition for one's accomplishments, but with most people it just brings a sense of satisfaction or pride in finishing a job. You have earned the right to toot your own horn in your blog, or don your Superman underwear.

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 – On Monday, Venus enters your solar twelfth house of undoing, where a misplaced sympathy is played on by people taking advantage of you. It might be best to refer people to legit non-profits who properly screen people for need. You could then elect to help screened cases in whatever way you see fit. Your ruler Mars is aggravated Tuesday by Mercury and Moon aspects; watch out for that chip on the shoulder, and avoid picking fights.
TAURUS - April 20-May 20 -- On Monday, Venus enters your solar eleventh house of friends; they may decide you need saving when you are perfectly fine, thank you, so it might be best to avoid them for a month or so. Ruler Venus joins Neptune Thursday in your house of chums, repeating a theme, but it might be put to good use by volunteering some hours at a local charity. Ruler Venus exchanges favors on Friday night.
GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – On Monday, Venus enters your solar tenth house of career; you may receive some perks of office altho they may be less than you expected. May be extra stressed by the T-square in Monday's Full Moon; you'll be prone to excess, but be darn sure not to drink and drive this month. Ruler Mercury is prone to mouthing off a bit much on Tuesday; don't go starting pointless arguments.
CANCER - June 21-July 22 – On Monday, Venus enters your solar ninth house of higher education and law, where you seek you apply your highest ideals to the real world; this could work but most likely only in limited and well defined ways. I suggest reading “Three Cups of Tea” or the sequel. You may feel extra out of sorts on Thursday, when the Moon is void almost all day; stick to routine chores. Friday afternoon is an excellent time for Cancerians to generate ideas – make notes on a pad and develop these ideas later on.
LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The Sun is in Leo from Sunday till early Monday. You may feel like your feelings are not being returned in kind on Sunday, but then again, Leos are such gluttons for love n' attention anyway. On Monday, Venus enters your solar eighth house of pooled resources, where you may receive settlements from insurance that are less than you hoped for. Your ruler the Sun receives a favorable trine from Saturn on Friday, when older friends may mentor you or give sound advice.
VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – May be extra stressed by the T-square in Monday's Full Moon; you'll be prone to excess, but be darn sure not to drink and drive this month. The Sun is in Virgo from 1:52 am Monday til Wednesday morn. You awaken Monday a bit fuzzy-headed; have a second cuppa java before facing the commute. Make sure to take the lunch break Monday to avoid exhaustion by quitting time. Also on Monday, Venus enters your solar seventh house of partners, where you could easily imagine a new love will fulfill your every need without asking-- oh grow up! You could have a real chip on your shoulder Tuesday; count ten before lashing out at imaginary slights.
LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – On Monday, Venus enters your solar sixth house of health, where you might nurse yourself or others thru illness this month. The Sun is in Libra from 8:02 am Wednesday till midday Friday. On Wednesday night you may have to shuffle the schedule to adjust for many changes of plans. A canceled event leaves you free to explore new worlds. Your ruler Venus is conjunct Neptune Thursday morn, but try to ignore this arrow from Cupid; it is joke played on dreamers. Ruler Venus exchanges favors on Friday night.
SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – On Monday, Venus enters your solar fifth house of creativity; a new breath of inspiration fires up your efforts. The Moon is in Scorpio from 12:33 pm Friday thru Saturday. Friday night offers an opportunity to act on your best ideals in some constructive fashion. On Saturday morning you are determined to get your to-do list done. You can relax mid-afternoon by catching up on calls or emails to friends and grown children.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – May be extra stressed by the T-square in Monday's Full Moon; you could be prone to excess. On Monday, Venus enters your solar fourth house of home and family; you may look at your family members, crowded around your dinner table, thru a misty squint of adoration, and yet feel you have to fix everything for them. Not! You raised them so they would not need you to change their diapers anymore.
CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – On Monday, Venus enters your solar third house of siblings, who you imagine cannot function without your instruction and guidance – get over it! Your ruler Saturn receives a favorable Moon aspect in the legal, publishing or collegiate sector; you may make a good contact or receive a referral. On Friday afternoon, a relative or neighbor may know of an organization that needs your skills. Cheer up a friend Saturday morning.
AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – On Sunday, you and your mate need to feed each other's hearts. On Monday, Venus enters your solar second house of finances; you might give money away to charities or friends in need, or otherwise sabotage your budget. Also on Monday the Full Moon may activate dicey doings in finances; be sure to check your bank statements and investment returns for unexplained changes. You may feel contrary Wednesday night. On Friday your hard work at the office may earn you a personal thanks.
PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – You may be extra stressed by the T-square in Monday's Full Moon; you could be extra prone to excess as a means of dealing with stress but a night at the movies is usually a better escape. The Full Moon in Virgo Monday repeats the theme of reinventing oneself with a full makeover. Also on Monday, Venus enters your solar first house of self; time to get yourself over to the salon for a major trim, since you often neglect to go more than once or twice a year. Ruler Neptune is joined by Venus Thursday morning; you look at others thru a rosy glow.
