Your Milky Way Horoscope May 19-25, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
The Sun enters Gemini at 5:10 pm Monday. Gemini natives are chatterboxes and flirts who often change their minds and work hard at avoiding deep thought. On the other hand they are light-hearted, friendly, open-minded, congenial, and able to absorb oodles of data almost at a glance. Like the other air signs, they tend to me more objective than subjective. They do tend to be rather high-strung and need to make themselves get out for fresh air and exercise to work off some nervous energy.
Gemini is the original multi-tasker, with many conversations going and several hobbies or projects underway. Sometimes holds more than one job at a time, due to the fact that they often have many talents. Famous people with Sun in Gemini include: Judy Garland, Prince Philip, Richard Wagner, John F. Kennedy, poet Walt Whitman, educator Thomas Mann, comic Bob Hope, David and Laurence Rockefeller, former Beatle Paul McCartney, “happy warrior” Hubert Humphrey, quarterback Joe Namath, Anatoly Karpov, Josef von Sternberg, John Maynard Keynes, Maurice Sendak, Dr. Oz, and Anthony Eden.
Mercury is conjunct Venus at 18 degrees Gemini at 7:54 pm Friday. Economically, this is a favorable aspect for everything from the stock market to shopping, because the symbology is that the buyer (Mercury) finds proper value (Venus) in prices, and is inclined to buy. So don't be surprised at unusually high volume on the stock exchanges. And your items you've put out on your rummage sale are more likely to find a buyer, especially if this conjunction contacts natal personal planets.
We have a lunar eclipse at 12:25 am Saturday, May 25 at 4 degrees 8' of Sag. It is accompanied by a square to Neptune in Pisces, so this will be a stressful period for natives of mutable signs. Secret places and secret info (Neptune) meet the harsh light of day (Sun) leading to anxiety, fear, confusion, etc. Also be careful of bad effects from drugs or alcohol, anything that triggers allergic reactions from you, because your system is likely to be over-sensitive during the period that the eclipse is in force.

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 - On Monday the Sun enters your solar third house of daily life; you bump into people from your childhood, and may attend reunions. Friday night's Mercury-Venus conjunction helps you unload stuff at the block rummage; also, this aspect is sextile Uranus in your sign so siblings may make a surprise visit. Not only is the Uranus-Pluto square exact this week, Pluto also opposes Vesta in Cancer; I would make sure my belongings are covered by insurance and have an emergency fund to draw on.
TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - On Monday the Sun enters your solar second house of finances; you get more engaged in managing your own books, and there is a chance of a move. Mars is applying to a conjunction with Pallas; your anger is likely to take the form of a formal legal complaint, or at least consulting with an advisor on what to do. Friday night's Mercury-Venus conjunction may bring an exchange of gifts or a shopping expedition.
GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - On Monday the Sun enters your solar first house of self, and you are quite glad to chatter on about yourself and anything else that comes to mind while introducing yourself to lots of new people. Mercury squares Chiron in Pisces on Wednesday; take care of your hands, do exercises to avoid carpal tunnel syndrome, and pay attention to safety. Friday night's Mercury-Venus conjunction helps you dig up all the hot tips on new hairstyles and who is running specials.
CANCER - June 21-July 22 - On Monday the Sun enters your solar twelfth house of seclusion; you may sign up for a retreat, sometimes this is a forced retreat such as being confined to a hospital so go ahead and take care of elective procedures. You, too, are stressed by the T-square this week between Pluto, Uranus and Vesta; you may be called on to help in emergencies, but be proactive and prevent accidents before they happen. Friday night's Mercury-Venus conjunction may bring secret admirers or silent backers, or even a guardian angel working in your behalf.
LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - On Monday the Sun enters your solar eleventh house of groups; people hear about what your causes are and what teams you back. Friday night's Mercury-Venus conjunction brings a feeling of camaraderie especially if you attend any reunions.
VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – On Monday the Sun enters your solar tenth house of career; the spotlight is on you whether you are posting your resume or collecting an award. The Moon is in Virgo as the week begins, until midday Monday. Early risers Sunday may make an elaborate baked treat for the family, but feel hurt when the dieters reject it; maybe it's better to sleep in? Your energies are productive in the evening when you focus on your own project. Monday is basically harmonious in the morn; you could organize a group over a business luncheon.
LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from 1:07 pm Monday till Wednesday afternoon. The Sun's move into Gemini on Monday puts it in a trine aspect to Libra for the month; you might be successful arguing your case in court, or you may go back to school. Best day may be Tuesday from mid-morn to mid-afternoon, with nice trines helping you ask a favor so nicely that no one can refuse. On Wednesday the Moon will be void until it enters Scorpio, so stick to routine. Friday's Mercury-Venus conjunction helps you get a good deal on that scenic trip you have been yearning for.
SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – On Monday the Sun enters your solar eighth house of pooled finances; you might take up extreme sports, but please wear that helmet. The Moon is in Scorpio from 4:55 pm Wednesday till Friday afternoon. Midday Thursday favors having lunch with a mentor or power figure who can guide you in the right direction. On Friday the Moon is void from coffee-break time till the Moon enters Sag late afternoon, so stick to routine matters. Friday night's Mercury-Venus conjunction helps you obtain credit or loans, or plain old cash. Saturn will be trining Neptune in Pisces in June, and in this case a trine is NOT positive; be very careful about checking out new romantic partners.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – On Monday the Sun enters your solar seventh house of partners; you may link up with partners in all sorts of projects, or even be interviewed. With Gemini there, you are looking for someone that you can communicate well with. The Moon is in Sag from 5:49 pm Friday till next Sunday. Friday night's Mercury-Venus conjunction helps you say all the right things as you pour on the charm. The Moon trines Uranus midday Saturday, bringing fun and merriment to the first pool party of the season (but please brush up on water safety beforehand).

Saturday's lunar eclipse warns you not to shoot yourself in the foot with questionable ethics.
