Your Milky Way Horoscope May 5-11, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
Mercury at 7 degrees Taurus opposes Saturn in Scorpio at 7:13 am Sunday. On the one hand, this is a good aspect for doing detail work. On the other hand, you will be in quite a gloomy mood, and maybe even considering terminating a relationship or firing an employee. You are too obsessed with the bottom line, when you need to be more practical and look for approaches that work. Your outlook is much too negative for making major decisions; talk things over with an older person you respect, like dad or a mentor.
Mercury is conjunct Mars at 12 degrees Taurus at 8:33 pm Tuesday. Wow, last week you were really getting' mad because you kept pushing at a thing and darn it, it just wouldn't move. Now with this conjunction, you are ready to let fly (verbally) at the object of your frustration or anyone in the way. On the other hand you could write a very effective letter to the president of the company, or to the County Clerk, or whomever is at the nexus of the problem.
We have a New Moon Solar Eclipse at 19 degrees, 31' Taurus at 8:28 pm Thursday. It is accompanied by Mars and Mercury very close to the lights. Also Venus just enters Gemini at midday. And I better mention that Scorpio will get a corresponding solar eclipse this fall on November 3, at 11 degrees Scorpio. For an interesting interpretation of this May eclipse, see Marina's column at http://darkstarastrology.com/solar-eclipse-may-2013/ There is even a fifteen-minute video by Donna Page on the eclipse on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsKeL9AR2TM You go, Donna! I must confess that this eclipse contacts a major point on my own chart so I will be anxiously watching the effects.
Venus enters Gemini at 11:03 am Thursday. Venus in Gemini often uses his quick wit as a crutch in social situations, leading to superficial and ultimately unsatisfying relationships. But a more mature Venus can add not only sparkle to conversation, but also elevation and zest. You can learn to listen well, and create equal exchange. This is a very cheerful Venus, and that is nothing to sneeze at. This Venus needs mental attraction rather than physical ones, preferring intellectual pursuits. Famous people with Venus in Gemini include: both First Lady Jackie Kennedy and her mate, President John F. Kennedy, playwright William Shakespeare, former Beatle Ringo Starr, astronaut and senator John Glenn, baby doctor Benjamin Spock, and musicians or composers Van Cliburn, Richard Strauss, and Yehudi Menuhin.
The Sun and Mercury are conjunct at 20 degrees Taurus at 5:10 pm Saturday. The Sun-Mercury conjunction is one of the key points in the economic cycle, so one should watch the stock market and other economic indicator announcements. What news does Mercury bring the Sun? Well, looking at where Mercury has visited just this week, he made a stop to talk to Saturn (tight budgets, possible job losses) across the aisle, and had tea with Mars (debt and war), so probably he will not have a lot of happy talk to pass along to the Sun on Saturday.
