Your Milky Way Horoscope Sept. 15-21, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
Mercury at 11 degrees Libra opposes Uranus in Aries at 2:41 am Monday. Mechanical and electronic items can go awry. However, the mind can work at incredible speed under this aspect, and other people will seem as slow as molasses. Thoughts can be scattered and easily lost, so it would be good to keep a notebook or notepad nearby to anchor your thoughts onto. One's mind may only be able to make an overall survey of a topic or subject (such as astrology or electronics or some technical subject) but just a glance can yield a brilliant insight. Yet – your mind can skip around and so you forget to carry the two, or some such basic task as that.
Mercury at 13 degrees Libra sextiles Mars in Leo at 3:17 am Tuesday. This is good for skilled handwork, technical work, or even sports where the hands are important for catching that ball! Mercury and Mars together often spell debate also, so remember to respect the other fellow's point of view even as you try to convince him/her of the correctness of yours.
Venus is conjunct Saturn at 8 degrees Scorpio at 4:54 pm Wednesday. Those who are in a serious romantic involvement may decide to formalize (Saturn) it with an engagement – or break things off if the other party is not willing to make a commitment. This aspect reflects the opposite ends of the spectrum of romance. On the one hand a relationship begun under it may well last for decades – and on the other, existing relationships may see separations often due to the demands of a job or college or something of the sort. It can be difficult to speak of love, altho much easier to do the deeds that express one's commitment to the other person.
Venus at 8 degrees 59' Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn at 9:49 pm Wednesday. This is good for romantic relationships to take steps toward a deeper knowledge of each other. You go right past the superficial and probe deep into the psyche and motivations of the other person. It also favors improving one's financial position by getting and taking advice from a large bank or possibly from an insurance company (Pluto). Pluto also represents the mob, altho I cannot possibly recommend getting a loan from a mobster!
Mercury at 16 degrees Libra squares Jupiter in Cancer at 10:21 pm Thursday. You can dream big, take the long-range view, and utterly forget the picky details of getting from Point A to Point B. Adverse aspects between Mercury and Jupiter can make it difficult to do well in school or in college; it can also affect one's ability to contact people of influence. The square sometimes coincides with EXAMS, requiring EFFORT to prepare for and pass said tests. Since this aspect occurs on the day of the New Moon, it may be that some of us deliberately challenge ourselves by enrolling in a class or starting some new brainteaser game-playing habit.

ARIES - March 20-April 19 – Tuesday morning favors sports, games, or skilled handwork; you may even compete with a friendly opponent. The Moon is in Aries from 12:58 pm Thursday till Saturday night. Someone may irritate you no end early Friday, possibly on your commute, but shake it off. Friday afternoon your energy is high, and you might even burn off some of it with games or sports after work.

Wednesday's Venus-Saturn conjunction in your solar seventh house may make an older person or authority figure look awfully attractive. The Moon is in Taurus from 6:33 pm Saturday thru the weekend. The Taurus moon has no exact aspects on Saturday, so enjoy the power of this moon's ability to express the feelings and hopes of all of us, and the ability to get others to join you in community activities.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Your mind skips around Monday morning, tho you can take in a breathtaking amount of data at a glance. You can get into a friendly or not-so-friendly debate with a friend on Tuesday. Wednesday's Venus-Saturn conjunction in your solar second house of finances favors getting a good deal, one that you have researched. On Thursday you may look into taking a course sponsored by your employer to help with your career advancement.
SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Remember to stay in the present moment on Monday morning; instead of letting your mind run away with inner chatter. Tuesday favors finding how to improve your skills and techniques, possibly at a company-sponsored seminar or retreat. Wednesday's Venus-Saturn conjunction gives you an air of having rock-solid values; people may turn to you as the Voice Of Experience. On Thursday you might look into taking a seminar at a quiet retreat setting.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Monday can be a very stimulating day for getting ideas for creative projects or artistic pursuits. On Tuesday a friend might be very helpful at explaining techniques that improve your mastery of crafts. Wednesday is a day when you might get deeper than you want in some very muddy waters. On Thursday you might be intrigued by a class offered through a charity or other non-profit, something that you and your spouse might attend together.
CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Monday can be very stimulating inre the world of ideas, although it might be hard to recall anything useful without a notebook handy. Wednesday's Venus-Saturn conjunction in your solar eleventh house favors getting kind advice from friends or mentors. Pluto makes a station in your sign Friday; you may rethink how to take back control of your life or your business. On Thursday someone (possibly your mate) may suggest taking a course just to stimulate your minds.
AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius from 8:05 am Sunday till Tuesday morning. During the Sunday pm hours you are feeling distinctly unloved, and not inclined to grant any favors since you are not in any warm-n-fuzzy mood. On Monday you can wake with a chip on your shoulder, but try to shrug it off before entering the office. Wednesday's Venus-Saturn conjunction in your career sector smooths the edges of your ambition, and helps you schmooze successfully with superiors.
PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from 9:58 am Tuesday till midday Thursday. A late lunch Tuesday leads to extra sluggishness, so eat light-n-healthy. Tuesday late-night favors quality time with loved ones. Wednesday's Venus-Saturn conjunction makes you yearn to travel to ancient places. Early Wednesday afternoon has you thinking big, about expanding family or taking a long trip. There might be some resistance to those plans on Thursday, tho.
