Your Milky Way Horoscope March 3-9, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
The Sun is conjunct a retrograde Mercury at 7:58 am Monday, at 14 degrees of Pisces. This aspect usually brings calls or callers in pairs or threes, and with Pisces being a double sign anyway, that could double everything. With retrograde Mercury, we will possibly have to redo stuff from before the Merc retrograde station of Feb. 23. In fact this aspect may get confounded with the Venus-Jupiter square the same morning, when befuddled Pisces may promise far more than it can deliver.
Mercury and Venus trine Saturn on Wednesday and Thursday, sandwiching the Mercury-Venus conjunction at 1:54 pm Wednesday at 11 degrees Pisces. The conjunction is generally good for sales; here, with Mercury retrograde, merchants may have to knock the price down a bit to move items. The trine to Saturn favors selling used or scratch-and-dent stuff, all the way up to good antiques or blue-chip stocks.
Mercury at 8 degrees Pisces squares Jupiter in Gemini at 10:38 pm Saturday. Mercury ruling speech and Jupiter ruling bigness means we may tell the biggest fibs ever, the best fish stories, exaggerate, even proselytize (since Jove and Pisces both have an affinity for religion). Take everything you hear today with a big grain of salt, OK?

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 – Your ruler Mars will return to its home, Aries, next week – so hang in there and soon you will feel like yourself again. Meantime, Uranus lightens your mood with some Odd News early Monday, and with a humorous or unusual friend Friday morning. Wednesday may start off with an upsetting incident that only seems funny in retrospect, so you may have to work on your retelling of the story till the funny parts stand out better.
TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – Your ruler Venus is in lazy and squishy Pisces this month. However, Wednesday may be the best day to find a very good deal on something you have been looking for, and it may come from or thru a friend. You may also be able to sell off a few things this week that need to go to new homes. Set aside the proceeds for a rainy-day fund that needs replenishing.
GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Yes, we know that your ruler Mercury is still retrograde. However, this is an excellent time to find things on sale, provided that you check out the items for flaws or damage. Wednesday is most favorable for locating items you have been scouring the town for, and you might locate them thru people at work. Check the bulletin boards in the cafeteria, etc. (An offer Monday may fall through, but don't lose heart.) In other news, avoid overdoing on Saturday night, except in the area of phoning or online chatter.
CANCER - June 21-July 22 – With this current stellium in Pisces this month, you are probably more active than usual in areas of education, publishing, law, or spiritual matters. Mercury retrograde in this sector may prompt you to refresh your memory on a certain topic, and you may run into someone you used to know in relation to that topic about mid-week – possibly an instructor, possibly a fellow student. Pay attention here, because the universe is trying to give you another free lesson while it can.
LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Your ruler the Sun is conjunct a retrograde Mercury on Monday, when you might be asked to a return engagement as an emcee or spokesperson. This conjunction is in your solar eighth house, so it might come from a bank or insurance company – a good corporate gig that doesn't require too much from you. Wednesday and Thursday influences also are positive for sales, especially if done thru a broker. So list your services or goods with an agent or via third parties such as Amazon or other similar aggregators.
VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - Yes, we know that your ruler Mercury is still retrograde. However, this is an excellent time to find things on sale, provided that you check out the items for flaws or damage. Wednesday is most favorable for locating items you have been scouring the town for, and you might locate them thru people that your mate or partner knows. In other news, avoid overdoing on Saturday night, except in the area of phoning or online chatter.
LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Your ruler Venus is in lazy and squishy Pisces this month, altho that is favorable for creative realignments of your work space as well as your living space. You could be inspired by the example of other creative people as seen in the media. Flip through art magazines and artists' websites for for motivation to try new techniques.
SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The week begins with the Moon (void-of-course) in Scorpio. Your energy is good in the morning so get your exercise. Stick to routine for Sunday. Your ruler Mars is in compatible Pisces this month, although it does tempt you to be lazy and passive. On the positive side, you may find your creative energies running high so check your list of projects that have been put on the back burner, and get cracking.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from 4:11 pm Sunday till Tuesday night. The Moon squaring Neptune Sunday night favors neither going to the movies nor thinking straight. Your feelings or favors are not reciprocated Monday morn, but that is no reason to blow your stack. Tuesday morn has false starts; check your specs before starting work that will have to be redone if you goof up.
CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from 7:14 pm Tuesday till Thursday night. Cappy gets a laugh from family members before work on Wednesday, altho at the time it may not seem funny. Wednesday afternoon and evening have teaching aspects, where you may pass along your gems of hard-earned wisdom to the next gen. On Thursday, try not to let a family member get your goat, so to speak.
AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius from 10:02 pm Thursday thru the weekend. You get together with a friend mid-morning Friday for a laugh or two. Midday shines if you have lunch with a “hale fellow, well met” type. You need to hang onto that friend's outlook at least thru the day. Watch your spending Saturday, since you could easily sabotage your budget.
PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Sun-Mercury conjunction Monday morning promises a very busy morning, with people coming in the door in twos or threes. Influences are gathering to a major wave of confusion or at least a difficult time hanging onto your inner compass. You could also possibly lose your way literally, since Pisces often cannot find its way out of a paper bag! Make note of where you park the car and put your keys, little things like that.
