Your Milky Way Horoscope Sept. 1-7, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
The Sun at 9 degrees Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn at 4:43 am Sunday. Sun as will and Pluto as power will spell a favorable time to select and use a mantra or affirmation to help focus on goals. Intense experiences or feelings may prompt you to make some changes. It's also a good time to tackle things that require a good deal of energy, because your batteries have gotten recharged. It also favors research, digging down for the real story behind the story.
The Sun at 15 degrees Virgo sextiles Jupiter in Cancer at 9:47 am Saturday. A favorable day to be or meet a mentor or counselor. Your confidence and good cheer attract good luck, and doors open. A good time to make positive plans because you can see opportunities. A good time for working with groups, leading others, being interviewed for a job, or just networking.
A New Moon comes at 7:36 am Sept. 5, at 13 degrees 4' of Virgo. There is a tight opposition to Chiron at 11 degrees Pisces, which is a bit worrisome, suggesting health challenges – but a sextile to Jupiter at 14 degrees Cancer lends assistance. Uranus throws a monkey wrench into the works from 11 Aries (inconjunct). Another lineup at 3-7 degrees of the signs also forms: Mars in Leo applies to a square to Saturn in Scorpio (accidents and injuries quite possible); Ceres in Virgo sextiles Saturn and opposes Neptune in Pisces (cut your losses and look to a new harvest two months hence); Juno in Aquarius is opposite Mars and applies to a square to Saturn (partnership breakups possible).

POPE FRANCIS – I finally posted a little article on the new Pope Francis and also a kind of book review on a book that accidentally talks about ancient astronomy. The article on Pope Francis is here: http://milkywayastrology.wordpress.com/2013/06/02/a-look-at-the-new-pope-franciss-astro-charts/ And the article on the best book that both is and is not about ancient astronomy is here: http://milkywayastrology.wordpress.com/2013/06/02/the-best-book-about-ancient-astronomy-that-isnt-about-astrology-per-se/

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 – Monday night favors fun times with the kids. On Tuesday do your mate a favor, possibly by driving the kids to doctor appointments. Uranus in your sign is inconjunct the New Moon on Sept. 6; you may be personally upset by the changes that this transit brings, even tho they may only touch you in a tangential way. Chiron in your solar twelfth house may point up some way in which you are jeopardizing your health; perhaps through overdoing food or drink, or in cheating yourself of enough sleep.
TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – Your mate is not inclined to indulge the family Monday. The family volunteer to help you with tasks on Tuesday. Friends are not interested in your hobbies Wednesday; they may even make hurtful remarks. Ruler Venus has been strong in Libra; perhaps you are more social this month, more inclined to trade favors with your pals. Family arguments may build up to a head late in the week (Mars-Saturn square is exact on Sept. 9).
GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Work-related communications may be blocked in some way on Monday; maybe a server is down. You may exchange favors with a relative Tuesday. Thursday's New Moon will really challenge your ability to juggle work and family demands. The phone rings off the hook Friday. You work on children's insurance matters on Saturday. Pallas is strong in your finance sector this week; you might buy or sell property or broker deals for others.
CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Moon is void in Cancer most of Sunday (till it enters Leo). For some, this day may offer an Opportunity Period because a void can operate well in Cancer. Last aspect is a square to Venus (the previous) Saturday night; you might prune your budget, for example. A happy financial surprise may land in your lap at work Monday. You exchange favors with a family member Tuesday. Midday driving (or other travel) on Wednesday can be chaotic. Thursday's New Moon will challenge desires to travel or increase your education.
LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon is in Leo from 8:01 pm Sunday till Wednesday morning. Mid-morning Monday has Saturn blocking you, so don't ask for favors at that time. Monday night favors laughs with unusual people. Venus smiles on favors asked just after lunch Tuesday. A Virgo New Moon on Thursday brightens financial prospects, but your harvest may still be two months off. Mars in your sign is energizing, but slow down; Mars will run into a Saturn brick wall on the 9th and you might need to stop!
VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon is in Virgo from 6:43 am Wednesday till Friday afternoon. Watch for the after-lunch slump Wednesday.

Work or medical appointments may be scrambled Wednesday. Thursday's New Moon may present a health wake-up call. The Moon is in Libra from 3:12 pm Friday till next Sunday night. Early risers Saturday apply themselves to their goals. Midday is brightened by unusual or humorous guests at lunch. You may be over-emotional at Saturday dinner.
SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Try to be open-minded about career offers Monday p.m. Children's schedules are chaotic Wednesday, when appointments might be canceled.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – You always yearn for freedom, but Monday your secret yearning for structure bites back. You enjoy time spent with children Monday night. A friend may give you a referral Tuesday. You think your mate's mind is addled Wednesday. The boss cracks the whip mid-week – a theme that is repeated in Thursday's New Moon. Friday's schedule shows lots of meetings and discussion and calls. On Saturday you relax with friends, but keep a rein on personal finances.
CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Arguments over joint finances start off the week, but you can laugh with your mate again Monday night. Look into employer-sponsored insurance plans or discounts Tuesday (ones that you are not taking advantage of). Calls and messages can be garbled Wednesday; get clarification.
