Your Milky Way Horoscope June 2-8, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
MOON VOIDS this week--- Now here's the thing about the Moon here: it goes void-of-course 9:25 am Wednesday and remains void all Thursday till it enters Gemini at 11:32 pm, that's PM. Add to that the nearly full day that the Moon was void in Aries all of Tuesday morning, and you are looking at major gaps in this week when you normally would carry on with your business. On the other hand, a void Moon is said to offer unique opportunities when it is in the signs of Jupiter and its own place. Those signs are Sag, Pisces, Cancer, and TAURUS (because the Moon is exalted in Taurus). So- plan to initiate things where you want something to grow but which are not necessarily expected to impact your income streams. You might plant your veggie garden that you grow for your own use. You might start a personal blog which you do for your own satisfaction, not because you expect to make a profit. And so forth. But the Moon void in Aries is not expected to promise any similar ops.
Venus enters Cancer at 10:13 am Sunday. Venus in Cancer is very sweet indeed, and extra-nurturing. This is a very home-loving placement, and a native with this may prefer to work at home. Can be fearful of opening up their extreme empathetic nature lest they be rejected. Native sometimes cope with this by manipulating others' emotions to get the “right” response. But the richest relationships benefit from your no-strings-attached compassion and empathy – and your health likewise benefits from having an emotional outlet. (and no, a pet is not a complete substitute) Venus in Cancer likes its comforts and usually gets them. Famous people with Venus in Cancer include: Lyndon Baines Johnson, ballerina Margot Fonteyn, Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, Dean Martin, Harry Truman, trumpeter Louis Armstrong, former Yankees coach Casey Stengel, Princess Anne and author William Styron.
Mercury at 5 degrees Gemini trines Neptune in Pisces at 3:18 pm Monday. This is followed by Mercury trine Saturn at 9:22 pm. This is a great example of a trine not being a favorable aspect, because trines involving malefics can do a lot of damage. In this case, Mercury trine Neptune can easily lead you to accept false or even fake data. From there I might infer that you make a mistake in terminating (Saturn) Something. Example: you read a blog post or watch a slanted news broadcast and then decide to sell a stock – a stock that has profited you handsomely over the years and which you now forfeit its lovely dividends, alas.
Venus at 5 degrees Gemini trines Neptune in Pisces at 7:46 am Friday. The effect of this aspect is compounded by the fact that Neptune has a Retrograde Station at 4:26 am! (SR at 5 degrees 23' Pisces) Venus proceeds to trine Saturn at 11:23 am Friday. Here is another case where a trine just makes it too easy to shoot yourself in the foot. Also a word of caution to anybody who has even a slight case of diabetes – because Venus rules sugar and Neptune seems to be a signature for diabetes, take special care to stay on your diet this week.
Mars at 5 degrees Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces at 7:58 pm. Having two malefics square each other usually produces some concrete event. The most obvious effect is that this will probably sap everyone's energy; we will need to take to conserve our energy and get adequate rest. Neptune is enervating, and Mars often brings fevers, so be careful of things like Lyme disease. (keep covered on walks in the woods and so forth) The other effect is to cause a load of doubt, insecurity and discouragement. This square generally re-occurs every six months or so, so you might think back to your last bout of self-doubt. Your resolve is tested; you may have to tweak the plan a bit to stay on track, but most of the time it is better to stay the course.
You see all those 5s up there? Anybody with natal planets at 5 degrees (orb about 3 degrees) will certainly feel the enervating effects of Neptune. Get your sleep hours in.
We have a New Moon at 11:56 am, Saturday, June 8. It is at 18 degrees 01' of Gemini. The only close aspect to the NM is Juno at 19 degrees Aquarius, favoring progress made by partnering with one's spouse, business partner, coworker, etc. A T-square in cardinal signs is formed by Mercury, Pluto and Uranus at 11 degrees of the signs. Natives of cardinal signs will of course be most affected by that T-square. Everyone else would benefit from examining their natal charts to see where the T-square falls.
