Your Milky Way Horoscope April 14-20, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
Sweet Venus enters its home of Taurus with a sigh of relief at 3:25 am Monday. She tiptoes thru the door and up the stairs to slide in between some soft sheets on a poufy mattress. Let her sleep a bit late today, shall we? Venus in Taurus has a talent for picking up lovely things, but needs to get the hang of sharing them, such as by setting a table with her Waterford crystal and silverware, or loaning an item for a weekend. At the same time, they are genuine in their affections, but note that platonic love is not generally in their vocabulary. They are generally rather talented in music or other arts and have a lovely speaking voice. Famous people with Venus in Taurus include: songbird Doris Day, composer Richard Wagner, Bobby Darin, Ann-Margret, conductor Otto Klemperer, Sir Paul McCartney, and Prince Edward.
The Sun at 26 degrees Aries is conjunct Mars at 8:20 pm Wednesday. That's on a critical degree, so this warlike aspect might have a lot more punch in world events today. On the personal level, you need to work off that energy in games or sports. On another level, this is a very ambitious aspect. Aries wants to be Number One anyway, and with that push from Mars, they can vault over anyone in their way.
Mercury at 9 degrees Aries is conjunct Uranus at 5:20 am Saturday. What an electric combination! This aspect is great for buying new items of a mechanical or electronic nature, such as cars, computers, appliances, etc. On a personal level, we may receive news that shocks or surprises us in some way, or we may feel like kicking over the traces and getting free of the daily rut. See my article on an electional chart for a car purchase.
The Sun enters Taurus at 7:48 am Saturday. Ah, Spring is finally here for real when both the Sun and Venus are in Taurus, when the Bull sniffs fields full of flowers, and the cows are led to mountain pastures for the summer. Taurus likes to be comfortable; just check out the hollow where he/she usually sits in the most comfortable chair. Taurus aims to accumulate material comforts and security; these are important to him/her, and Tau just never settles down if those things are not coming forthwith. Usually gifted with common sense. Flaws include stubbornness, over-eating, and laziness when not doing physically-demanding jobs. Famous people with Sun in Taurus include: Barbra Streisand, Andie MacDowell, William Shakespeare, Fred Astaire, Carol Burnett, Queen Elizabeth II, Audrey Hepburn, and Roger Hornsby.
