Your Milky Way Horoscope Sept. 22-28, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
The Sun enters Libra at 4:44 pm Sunday. Librans like to talk things out to smooth over any social friction. I am reminded of Dwight D. Eisenhower starting off an interview by Ed Murrow by saying, “ Ed, I've been sitting here for months just waiting till I could have a good long talk about all this with just you,” while they sipped Mamie's iced tea. Ike had to master the art of maintaining harmony amongst multiple egos when heading the European task force during WWII. Librans want to know what you want, so they can keep you happy. Librans demand fair treatment. Sometimes a Libran will expect a Yes from you just because he/she said Please, and might be royally miffed if you cannot indulge the request. Also sometimes the Libran will cave in just to avoid argument, but creating resentment that eventually piles up into a flaming row is not serving the cause of peace. A more mature Libran will try to dish out the cookies or perks according to who values what, while demanding everybody contribute a fair amount of effort to the grand project.
Librans truly enjoy working with a partner. This is true even if she is only holding the ladder while hubby nails the roofing. Thrives on the approval of others, so sometimes winds up in the performing arts. Enjoys harmony in music, and in vocal talents can often sing in a wide range, on perfect pitch, in a pure tone. Dresses carefully to put together an outfit for the day. Offended by vulgarity. Famous people with Sun in Libra include: Eisenhower, author William Faulkner, showman and columnist Ed Sullivan, singer-actress Julie Andrews, late-night TV host Johnny Carson, actress Helen Hayes, Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, pianist Vladimir Horowitz, architect Le Corbusier, composer Giuseppe Verdi.
Venus at 17 degrees Scorpio trines Jupiter in Cancer at 5:01 pm Thursday, which is Jupiter's day, BTW. When the two benefics are in easy aspect, life can look very plush. It is also easy to overdo when it comes to sweets, gourmet multi-course dinners, spending in general, or any aspect of the good life. Note if it touches any natal planets for clues as to what you will be tempted by. Some chance of actually winning money under this aspect, but a lot depends on natal planets. You may feel like you are on vacation, spend more money than usual, be generous and treat another couple to dinner, etc.
Venus at 19 degrees Scorpio squares Mars in Leo at 9:32 am Saturday. This is often an aspect of sexual tension. People who are interested in each other may be prevented by social or economic roles from following up, so when they do meet it can get awkward. This is also an aspect that traditionally mean argument between couples – but of course it can be fun to make up. If the Mars is more activated, it can mean taking on a dare to impress someone. If Venus is representing money, it can mean putting in more hours and thereby increasing one's income for the week.
NOTE: Mercury will enter Scorpio next Sunday morning (Sept. 29). Mercury in Scorpio holds his cards close to the chest, and tries to scope out what cards are being held by the other players. (more next week)

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 - The Sun enters your solar seventh house on Sunday; you find yourself charming others in interviews or sales pitches, or partnering with a coworker. This is a pretty interesting week for Aries. Uranus in your sign exactly trines Pallas in Leo, enhancing your leadership qualities especially in emergencies. Uranus is also inconjunct Vesta in Virgo, which may force adjustments from necessity.
TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Sun enters your solar sixth house on Sunday; people are more aware of your efforts at work, and you may concentrate on personal wellness. The week begins with the Moon in Taurus, until early Tuesday. You could meet a brick wall midday Sunday, and altho you might be able to batter it down, it might be best to avoid the mess created. Your mate looks lovelier than ever over Sunday dinner. Very early risers on Monday may feel a sense of well-being that carries over all day.
GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The Sun enters your solar fifth house on Sunday; indulging your creative side enriches your life with crafts, art classes, or music. The Moon is in Gemini from 3:34 am Tuesday till Thursday afternoon. Early Tuesday morning finds harmony between the sexes. The morning commute, however, can be fogged by confusion, detours, or getting lost. Wednesday afternoon finds you energized by your errands and visits. Thursday offers good luck in converting an avocation into a paying proposition.
CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Sun enters your solar fourth house on Sunday; you find little changes create a more harmonious color palette in your home. The Moon is home in Cancer from 3:24 pm Thursday thru Saturday. You treat yourself after work Thursday. You delve into symbolism Thursday night, possibly arguing into the night over the meaning of some icon. Try to dodge any tug-of-war Friday morning. You enjoy a productive chat with a mentor late Friday morning or over early lunch. You are exceedingly optimistic early Saturday morn. Breakfast with loved ones may include a sweet treat Saturday.
LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - The Sun enters your solar third house on Sunday; you may act as Social Director this month, sending out invites or arranging bus tours – possibly to art museums. You may make a long-distance cyber-friend via the internet this week. A legal matter may suddenly be resolved, or you may untangle a legal question for someone else. Family members run into some luck Thursday; help them make the most of it. A sibling may finally meet the right person, and you cannot wait to attend the wedding.
VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - The Sun enters your solar second house on Sunday; you may want to know what certain items are worth, or put things up for sale. You take along a friend to your fave health food store and introduce him/her to better alternates for problem foods. It is possible that this friend or someone else may make fun of your food choices, but laugh it off. A surprise legacy may present itself this week.
LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - The Sun enters your sign on Sunday; you introduce yourself to busloads of new people in the most charming way possible. And since the Sun will trine Juno, making a station in Aquarius, one of those new people may be the mate of your dreams. With Mercury in late degrees of your sign, having a meeting of the minds is very important. Ruler Venus squares Mars on Saturday; don't pick fights with friends, but maybe you can channel competitive energies into an athletic contest.
SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - The Sun enters your solar twelfth house on Sunday; people may see less of you as you concentrate on projects. Also the subconscious may be brought to the surface under this transit, whether you want it to or not! Venus in your sign trines Jove on Thursday; make a point not to overdo at dinner. Ceres in Virgo approaches the midpoint of Venus in your sign and Jupiter; a friend may be a catalyst in re-aligning your diet for a healthier you. It is easy to get into arguments Saturday morn; resolve not to sweat the small stuff.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - The Sun enters your solar eleventh house on Sunday; you spend more time helping out a charitable cause or local association. You may make a new friend while at the local bookshop. Go the next avant-garde art show, where you meet a fascinating expert on everything. A career move into health-food products or merchandising may improve your financial situation, or at least provide another income stream.
CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - The Sun enters your solar tenth house on Sunday; you could receive recognition this month, or you might post your resume here 'n' there. A night out with friends Thursday may tempt everyone to over-indulge, so maybe you could cut things off a bit early. Pluto in your sign is exactly trine Vesta in Virgo this week and next; you find what you need, possibly a long ways off in a foreign country. A financial partnership may present itself late in the week; this really looks like it has possibilities.
AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - The Sun enters your solar ninth house on Sunday; adventures by air may beckon, such as via hot-air balloon; also courses or books in international diplomacy may interest you. Juno in your sign trines Sun in Libra the second half of the week; you may meet someone new who sure looks like your type, possibly at a class or church. You may have noticed Neptune in your solar second house inflating your bank account or financial statements, but make sure there is something solid underneath it.
PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - The Sun enters your solar eighth house on Sunday; mergers of any kind may be on the agenda this month, and some may have power struggles. Second-house Uranus receives a windfall from extra work or from converting a hobby into a second income. Children may have a lucky day on Thursday. I don't know if I mentioned that Chiron is in your sign for quite a while yet, so you need to pay attention to health and safety issues at all times.
