Your Milky Way Horoscope March 10-16, 2013


By Milky Way Maid

Mars enters its natural home, Aries, at 2:26 am Tuesday. Don't be surprised if you wake up extra early that day, just rarin' to go. For Aries, it is almost like a birthday or solar return when his ruler Mars returns to his home sign. Your batteries get recharged, and if your goals or plans have been vague or put on the back burner, that gets fixed in a hurry because your goals become clearer and you carve out doable portions for each day and each week.

Mars-in-Aries keywords are courage, initiative, and leadership. Mars-in-Aries wants to be first in everything – first in the door, first out the elevator, it can be exasperating! But bless 'em, these self-starters have bottomless energy and get something going every week, if not every month. Famous people with Mars in Aries include: author Charles Dickens, revolutionary Oliver Cromwell, golfer Jack Nicklaus, quarterback Joe Namath.

We have a New Moon at 3:51 pm Monday at 21 degrees, 24' Pisces. The Moon was conjunct Venus earlier that morning, signifying the exchange of favors or gifts with dear friends and others. However, the first aspect made by the Moon after this NM is a conjunction to Mars in Aries on Tuesday morning; hopefully this portends new romantic connections for some of us – it will depend on where Aries is in your natal chart.

The only other aspects this week are quick aspects to the Moon. Looking ahead, Mercury will go direct again on Sunday, March 17, at 4:03 pm. Mercury will be at 5 degrees, 39' of Pisces.

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 from 7:17 am Tuesday till Thursday afternoon. Words may come out with more of a zing than you mean to on Tuesday morning. Impatience can lead to accidents Tuesday night; plan everything out. You may be frustrated, too, when the Moon is void all day Wednesday and into Thursday morning, when attempts to reach others or close deals fall through. If you don't have an outlet for expression, get one pretty soon; you need something to burn off that excess energy.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – Your ruler Venus is happy to do a favor for a dear friend, and says yes when asked Monday morning. Mars enters your solar twelfth house of secret dreams on Tuesday; you need to find ways to manifest your private dreams. The Moon is in Taurus from 3:08 pm Thurs. thru Sat. Going to the movies with a good friend may be extra enjoyable Thursday night, but it might be better if you do the driving. Frustration might be the keyword midday Friday. A Saturday spent with a friend or with a club can be very pleasant; think of where you could go for a day trip.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Mars enters your solar eleventh house on Tuesday; arguments with friends may break out, or you may engage in sports or rivalries with your companions or on team sports. People will sure know who you're rooting for! Ideally, you channel some of your abundant energy into a local humanitarian group, perhaps its fund drive or auction. Your ruler Mercury is slowing to a station next Sunday, so you may feel like you are walking through quicksand this week till it turns direct.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Mars enters your solar tenth house of career on Tuesday; you may earn your salary by Mars-ruled occupations like surgeon, butcher, barber, athlete, or via fees and commissions. Rivalry or contests may figure in there, too. Your best days this week may be Monday morning's New Moon in compatible Pisces, and Moon in Taurus Thursday afternoon thru Saturday. Saturday looks very nice for travel or attending a travelogue.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Mars enters your solar ninth house of travel and law on Tuesday; lawsuits and tuition debts may rear their ugly heads during this period; make sure to keep receipts in a safe place so you can prove what you paid. The Aries influence is that you may file suit, or threaten to, before trying to resolve things out of court; don't be a hothead. Another expression is the drive to reach intellectual accomplishments such as a degree or a tenured position.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - Mars enters your solar eighth house of insurance and pooled funds on Tuesday; you could have some disputes over insurance coverage or fees regarding your investments, but you may also make private loans to others for a small consideration or for holding some collateral. Your ruler Mercury is slowing to a station next Sunday, so you may feel like you are walking through quicksand this week till it turns direct.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Your ruler Venus is happy to do a favor for a dear friend, and says yes when asked Monday morning. Mars enters your solar seventh house of partners on Tuesday; you initiate more relationships, you introduce yourself and others to more people, you may even play matchmaker. Significant others and the public may be argumentative, erratic, and seem just plain crazy to you, also on Tuesday. Fortunately, it is an effect that will soon pass.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Co-ruler Mars enters your solar sixth house of workplace and health on Tuesday; you take the initiative in serving others to satisfy your own sense of duty. Also this is good news because Mars is very strong and healthy in Aries, and should bring renewed energy to you. Best day may be Tuesday, although you may be a bit too impulsive. Saturday looks very pleasant with the Moon in opposite sign Taurus and other planets in compatible water signs – take a day trip with your partner.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - Mars enters your solar fifth house of children and creativity on Tuesday; your drives for self-expression find many outlets now, in romance, in arts and crafts, all with a fiery quality and sense of adventure that Aries brings to everything. Tuesday night favors a family night with the wife and kids. In fact, you may become more involved with the kids and they may have some very interesting ideas for a family business, too.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – You may be the go-between Sunday between friends and relatives – possibly you introduce a teacher to a friend whose child needs special help, for example. Mars enters your solar fourth house of home and family on Tuesday; you express more of your personal feelings this spring. You can't bite your tongue anymore and so the in-laws find out you don't wanna hear anything more about so-and-so's bad back or lousy boss, etc. At the same time, you love all family members fiercely!

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - Mars enters your solar third house of messages and relatives on Tuesday; you become more assertive in communicating with others, so that there may actually be a flurry of messages flying from your email box. Ruler Uranus can get a little wacko Tuesday night, too, so perhaps working out your rebellious side in a game of paintball would be good – or taking the stage on Open Mic night.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from 1:19 am Sunday till Tuesday morning. Pisceans wake up in a very spiritual mood, perhaps starting the day with a meditation session or a walk in nature. You lay down a guilt trip Sunday night. A dear one comes thru as you find someone to swap favors with Monday morning. Mars enters your solar second house of finances, so keep an eye on fees and other charges that eat into your bank balance.
