Your Milky Way Horoscope May 26-June 1, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
The Sun at 5 degrees Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces at 6:27 am Sunday. This is such a problematic aspect because we fool (Neptune) ourselves (Sun) into thinking the situation is better or at least different than it really is. Hold off on any decisions until you have bounced your ideas off your fave sounding board. This aspect sometimes brings something we've denied out into the public eye. The Moon is also void for most of the day so adds to the futility of trying to start anything new. Stick to routine chores.
Mercury at 23 degrees Gemini is conjunct Jupiter at 3:56 am Monday. Mercury in good aspect to Jupiter is excellent for academic studies, although the conjunction could make your ideas or mental processes too fast to pin down. You may need a notebook or Dictaphone to capture your thought for later analysis. Also good for all hand-eye coordination whether in sports, art or crafts.
The major and minor benefics, Jupiter and Venus, are conjunct at 23 degrees Gemini at 3:29 pm Tuesday. (Mercury is only a half-step ahead of them.) One thing to watch out for is over-indulgence in food, and in sweets especially. You can really give yourself the mother of all belly aches with this aspect.
Mercury enters Cancer at 3:07 am Friday. Everybody seems to love Cancerians but Mercury here does have a downside (in immature natives) and that is that they can continually appeal to others' sympathies in a way that expects indulgence. Mature Cancerians reach out to others with their intuitive emotional antennae (their silent communicators), and readily show they sympathize and care. Theirs is the warm shoulder to cry on, and the ever-ready cuppa tea, and the sage advice. They will not endlessly hold your hand, but they will soothe you until you can go out the door and face the world again.
Mercury in Cancer is good for scholars, historians, antique dealers, and lawyers who rely mostly on legal precedent. Famous people with Mercury in Cancer include: Nelson and David Rockefeller, pianist Van Cliburn, Igor Stravinsky, and educator Thomas Mann.
Mars enters Gemini at 6:39 am Friday. This Gemini is able to use words as a weapon, either in formal or informal debate, in politics, or academia, and the goal is to show that he has the sharpest and fastest mind. Reminds me of Cyrano de Bergerac, who created a rhyme as he dueled with his sword – demonstrating that his wit was as rapier-sharp as his sword, indeed. However in real life someone with this approach can win his battles but lose the war, as modern folks are less admiring of cleverness when it is so aggressive. A positive side to this placement is a real eagerness to learn. You may find lifelong students here.
Mars in Gemini can use words as a call to action, even tho the native may not be very active or athletic. Examples of that include Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Martin Luther King, Jr. Other famous people with this placement include: comedienne Phyllis Diller, Prince Philip, author Ernest Hemingway, Barbra Streisand, author Virginia Woolf, dictator Benito Mussolini, and painter Marc Chagall.
The Sun at 11 degrees Gemini sextiles Uranus in Aries at 9:46 pm Saturday. Sun-Uranus aspects almost always bring unusual people or foreigners into our lives in some way. We sit next to some very interesting people at a dinner or play, the company brings in a consultant who was born in another country and has the most fascinating accent, etc. We are exposed to those who live or think or talk very differently from ourselves, and that can be a real mind-opener.
