Your Milky Way Horoscope March 31-April 6, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
Happy Easter! Easter Sunday is marked by Venus at 11 degrees Aries sextile Jupiter in Gemini at 10:49 am, promising lots of sweets in everyone's baskets. Wishes can come true, since the Easter Bunny might be a little too generous about filling those baskets. People feel outgoing and optimistic. Families feel like going to a community-sponsored event or visiting the zoo Sunday rather than just celebrate at home.
The Sun at 11 degrees Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn at 11:03 pm Sunday. Don't bother beating your head against a brick wall because you can't win this time. Cardinal signs and especially Aries natives will be stressed, ah, let's say challenged to the max. And if you lose this round, just chalk it up as a learning experience and move along.
The Sun at 11 degrees Aries sextiles Jupiter in Gemini at 8:24 am Monday. Now see, here's how the wheel turns. Yesterday ya couldn't catch a break with that Sun-Pluto square. Today, everything is niceness and roses and you catch the lucky bounce of the football. So maybe it evens out, I don't know.
Obviously 11 degrees of all the signs will be activated this week so check if you have any natal or progressed planets at or near those degrees. And keep notes on what happens this week for future reference.
The Moon is void-of-course on Monday from 1 am till 1:35 am Tuesday, void-of-course on Wednesday from 6:35 am till 4:41 am Thursday, and on Friday afternoon from 1:22 pm till 9 am Saturday morning. This is pretty unusual to have three long periods of v-o-c moons in one week. Stick to routine matters during these periods – EXCEPT FOR MONDAY. Because the Moon is in a sign of Jupiter on Monday (in Sag) it forms an opportunity period. Last aspect before going v-o-c is a Moon trine Mars, so you could use Monday to get back on your New Year's resolution to exercise, or you could try out for an athletic team (anything from soccer to baseball to darts).

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 – Easter Sunday has many positive aspects affecting you, and you may be in a surprisingly spiritual frame of mind. On Monday you may luck out in regards to a legal problem which becomes a non-event. Try not to mouth off to the boss Tuesday afternoon; he may not appreciate your sense of humor. Midday Friday favors a luncheon with friends. On Saturday you may be quite content to laze by the pool all afternoon.
TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – If you go anywhere for Easter, I am betting it is a family cabin up in the mountains somewhere. Things may be going on behind the scenes that will ultimately improve your finances. Tuesday evening is a good time to pick a good affirmation and work with it. Thursday night may be very frustrating and requests may be be refused. Saturday offers a respite and a holiday mood; might be a good date for a day trip, or just zoning out on movies.
GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Jupiter in your sign is activated several times this week so I hope you will be able to capitalize on it. A luncheon or afternoon with an unusual friend Sunday promises lots of laughs. Very easy to overdo at dinner that same night. On Monday morning you learn of a huge favor offered by a friend. Try to avoid blowing the budget Tuesday afternoon. Friday morning is auspicious for you, with multiple friends or organizations stepping in with offers.
CANCER - June 21-July 22 – You may be faced with changes to the schedule Tuesday afternoon; roll with the punches. On Wednesday morning, you ride herd on staff to keep them from starting on jobs before they understand the specs. A laugh Thursday morning helps everyone relax a bit before starting the work day. Career goals gain support Friday morning. The Moon in compatible Pisces on Saturday is ideal for a holiday-type mood as you relax with family.
LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Aspects this week in compatible Aries favor projects in college, publishing, or court house. The Moon in fire-sign Sag for Easter Sunday raises the fun level and makes everything more festive. Decorate with colorful banners or flags in the house and yard. A friend may introduce you to a good lawyer or other key person on Monday. On Tuesday you find the ambition to start on a project after work. Friday morning and midday are also auspicious for perks coming thru people your partner knows.
VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Easter Sunday is probably spent at home, with lots of visitors stopping in for lunch or games for the kids. The Moon's aspects from compatible Capricorn on Tuesday helps you be more focused on listing goals and checking items off the to-do list. Stick to routine on Wednesday. Friday morning is generally favorable for workplace relationships and team projects. Saturday's Moon in compatible Pisces favors relaxing with family in a public place, such as parks or other open places.
LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Easter Sunday may be spent at local holiday-related events like an egg roll or museum scavenger hunt. Tuesday afternoon may stress you out when appointments are canceled. Friday morning is very pleasant if spending time with the children or on creative pursuits. Saturday may find you lost in contemplation of beauty at least part of the day.
SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – This Easter Sunday may favor finding the egg with a nice prize inside. The Moon's aspects from compatible Capricorn on Tuesday helps you be more focused on listing goals and checking items off the to-do list. Thursday night can be frustrating when you keep hearing that ugly word “no” but don't get discouraged. Friday morning is much more easy-going and people are much more helpful. Saturday's Moon in watery Pisces favors knocking off for a holiday-type outing.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag as the week begins, until early Tuesday. You are playing your fave song, Born To Be Wild, midday Sunday. Dinner hour is a harmonious time with the children; encourage them to tell you how they did this morning on the egg hunt. See note above about the v-o-c moon on Monday; take advantage of an opportunity period.
CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from 1:35 am Tuesday till early Thursday. You may meet a local celeb Tuesday morning. A parent may drop in unexpectedly in the afternoon. You may have to take control of a situation late Tuesday before someone puts footprints on your back. Rushing to get ready for work Wednesday may lead to some mix-ups so check your bag before heading out the door.
AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius from 4:41 am Thursday till Saturday morning. A bit of humor lightens the start of the day Thursday. Still, you are not inclined to grant favors (and not likely to get one) mid morning. Moon aspects are generally pleasant Friday but since the Moon is void, will not probably lead to anything concrete.
PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – Easter morning is likely to see you overdo on the candy, so cool it. The Moon's aspects from compatible Capricorn on Tuesday helps you be more focused on listing goals and checking items off the to-do list. The Moon is in Pisces from 9 am exactly Saturday thru the weekend. You probably will feel like going to the early show Saturday at the cinema, and possibly just watch one film after another in a personal film-fest.
