Your Milky Way Horoscope April 7-13, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
Mars and Venus are conjunct at 19 degrees, 58' of Aries at 12:58 am Sunday. There's a whole slate of possible effects this conjunction can bring, and the aspect gains added strength because of the fact that the New Moon on Wednesday is virtually on top of the same degree. On one hand, it can mean arguments about money, or arguments with loved ones – especially if it occurs in a money house. It can mean meeting your knight in shining armor, or someone who resembles one, anyway. It can mean good manners, with a dash or two of chivalry. In games and sports, it can bring high energy along with fair play and a sporting attitude – don't get me wrong, Aries likes to win, but he is so high-minded here that he wants to win by the rules. And of course it can bring added passion to any area of one's life.
Pluto makes a stationary retrograde at 3:32 pm Friday at 11 degrees, 35' of Capricorn. Pluto has to do with death and immortality, with heredity and evolution, with survival of the entity and survival of the race – this is from Dane Rudhyar, and I encourage you to look up old copies of his books. He wrote: “Another illustration, easily understandable, is presented by what occurs in trees during winter. The living fluids of trees withdraw as it were into the roots. The sap hibernates within the great womb of the soil, from which it originally emerged under the individualizing and stem-producing power of springtime. Likewise the ego consciousness of the individual withdraws during sleep into its roots and within the vast all-human wombs of the generic unconscious and of the collective unconscious.”
Stephanie Clement on SkyViewZone website also addresses the planetary stations. Of the Pluto retrograde, she says: “Be willing to go to extremes and prepared to cut away the useless in those areas of life represented by the house your Pluto is in, releasing what no longer serves you in order to regenerate your life.”
Mercury enters Aries at 10:37 pm Saturday. Mercury in Aries tends to use violent slang words like kill, slay, etc but usually in sports or in competitive business situations. Can tend to sound like a general giving orders to the troops, he is that overbearing at times. But a mature Aries personality is able to translate that call to battle, if you will, into inspiring his “troops” to make a unified effort and achieve a goal – whether that is a team goal or a company goal or whatever individual goals we have. Can be a real motivational speaker. Can be as quick and witty as Gemini. Often thinks on his feet, and this is an advantage in the military or in sports. The keyword with Aries is always leadership, whether of an army, company, or orchestra, etc. Famous people born with Mercury in Aries include: Carol Burnett, Shirley MacLaine, astronomer Copernicus, conductor Arturo Toscanini, William Shakespeare, Vincent Van Gogh, and that silver-tongued demagogue, Adolf Hitler.

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 3:02 pm Monday till late Wednesday. Mars and Venus are conjunct in your sign early Sunday, and this aspect is emphasized by the fact of a New Moon on virtually the same degree on Wednesday morning. So the whole (lunar) month should be an interesting one in regards to remaking our image, taking up a new exercise and diet regimen, wanting to rejuvenate oneself head to toe. Someone could upset you early Tuesday, yet this may be followed by an insight worth checking out. A relative or neighbor may offer some help or a gift Tuesday afternoon.
TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from 11:22 pm Wednesday till Saturday morning. You may be a bit fuzzy-headed during the morning commute Thursday, so have that second cuppa java if needed. You may feel a bit discouraged by the end of that work day, but like Scarlett O'Hara says, tomorrow's another day. The Moon makes no exact aspects on Friday, so you may concentrate on your own agenda. Saturday morning may bring a phone call or email from a friend you haven't heard from in a while.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from Sunday till Monday afternoon. The Moon in your sign squares Jupiter Sunday morning, which is often a signal for people to blow things out of proportion; count ten, and count ten again. A Moon-Mercury conjunction late Sunday-early Monday may find you journaling way past bedtime, which is actually a far better way of processing intense feelings than to lash out at housemates. The Venus-Mars conjunction and New Moon occur in your solar second house, where you may argue with loved ones over money.
