Your Milky Way Horoscope Oct. 6-12, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
Mercury at 9 degrees Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn at 9:55 pm Sunday. While Sag supposedly worships and seeks Truth more than any other sign, I think it is Scorpio that is more determined to ferret out what the Truth is. I may be prejudiced about this, since I have Scorpio rising. Scorpio will be driven to get to the heart of the matter, possibly with an eye to bringing about positive changes in one's life. This aspect can poke you into taking up study of esoteric subjects like astrology, psychology, handwriting analysis, or into picking up crossword puzzles or Sudoku, etc. Can do a great job of forensic analysis of bookkeeping or other documents like contracts.
Venus enters Sag at 1:54 pm Monday. Venus goes from serious Scorpio to footloose Sag this week. Venus lightens up and is more inclined to just flirt rather than consider a serious romance. That is mainly because Venus in Sag spends so much time out of town, unavailable for a spontaneous date at the pizza joint. Sag's emotional rootlessness can be seen by others as fear of commitment, tho it is really a fear of loss of freedom. Is inclined to joke too much with a serious romantic partner. A mature Sag is able to foster trust in the relationship so that they can endure short separations necessitated by career demands. Venus in Sag makes a better friend, due to his loyalty combined with a certain detachment.
Famous people with Venus in Sag include: Dwight David Eisenhower, James Thurber, Cary Grant, Winston Churchill, Robert Louis Stevenson, Lewis Carroll, Rudyard Kipling, Mark Twain, Douglas MacArthur, Johnny Carson, Joan Baez, Jane Fonda, Charles de Gaulle, and Pablo Casals.
Mercury is conjunct Saturn at 10 degrees Scorpio at 3:39 pm Tuesday. The shorthand for this aspect is “serious talk”, altho it may also include study or reading on serious subjects. Another shorthand is “negative thinking” which you really gotta fight against and analyze whether there is any factual basis for your negativity. You want to stick to the facts, get to the point, get to the bottom line – “Are you in or are you out?” It can also mean crunching the numbers or talking with an older person or mentor. It can mean guilt and worry altho the Moon is often involved when emotions are stirred up. It can mean saying Goodbye, especially for responsible reasons. Hitting your Moon or other personal planets can make you somber and nit-picky and no fun at all. (This aspect kind of echoes the Mercury-Pluto sextile of earlier this week.)
Venus at 3 degrees Sag squares Neptune in Pisces at 5:06 am Thursday. Now this is a bit hard for me to understand the shorthand of this. Normally Venus and Neptune together spell “in love with love” feelings. But Sag is not very serious or romantic, as opposed to Pisces who would like to live in dreams. So this is hard to reconcile. It may be that one party thinks this match is the Real Thing, and the other party thinks this is just a convenient arrangement. A romantic interlude for those already committed, and a secret affair for new liaisons. Possible increased sensitivity and creativity in the arts such as music and painting. The other meaning of Venus square Neptune is that it tends to bring the get-rich-quick schemes (and other scams) out of the woodwork. Don't sign contracts under this aspect! Someone is not telling you the whole story, or is fabricating lies wholesale.
The Sun at 19 degrees Libra squares Jupiter in Cancer at 11:09 am Saturday. Sun-Jupiter squares generally force you to see the effects of overdoing stuff – you wake with the killer hangover, and so you finally decide to grow up and accept your limits when it comes to alcohol. It also tends to make us loosen the purse strings a bit and spend more than usual. You may buy multiples at the shirt sale, plus three pairs of shoes, or replace all your socks. Altho with Cancer, your spending may be on the home and décor.
