Your Milky Way Horoscope Sept. 8-14, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
Mercury enters Libra at 3:07 am Monday. Mercury in Libra is VERY fair-minded, and generally makes a point of listening to both sides before saying anything. Must mention that the youthful Mercury-in-Libra person spends too much time looking for acceptance from others when giving an opinion, because they are afraid of saying the wrong thing. This is why people think they are indecisive. Libras can lose their balance, honest, as well as their integrity and perspective, if they do not learn what is importance to THEM and not to others. The mature Mercury-in-Libra person learns how to say what needs to be said, but in a softer, gentler manner so that it goes down easily. Sometimes has a wonderful vocal gift for accents or languages – can project voice without distortion.
Sometimes the Mercury-in-Libra person can see in a flash what the solution to a problem is, but then they try to back up and figure it out logically – they should learn to trust that intuition. As an air sign is capable of real wisdom, or the most awful superficiality. Famous people with Mercury in Libra include: Queen Elizabeth I, golfer Arnold Palmer, Margaret Chase Smith, Henry Ford II, and actor David McCallum.
Mars at 7 degrees Leo squares Saturn in Scorpio at 7:06 am Monday. Could be an Oopsie day, with a broken bone or two if it contacts something in your natal chart. Arguments (Mars) may lead to saying goodbye or firing (Saturn). This is a very touchy aspect and you may have to walk on eggshells this morning. An irresistible force (Mars) meets an immoveable object (Saturn) – meaning, do not get into arguments that will change no one's minds.
Venus leaves her home in Libra for Scorpio at 2:16 am Wednesday, Sept. 11. Venus in Scorpio is said to be in her detriment – although it must be said that this Venus wears the little black dress like NOBODY else. This Venus can get so much just by whispering a word in your ear, or even by saying nothing at all, and her eyes can be more suggestive than the crudest gesture. Sometimes Venus in Scorpio tries to control or manipulate others, but that is so unattractive! Scorpio rules The Hidden, and in this case, Venus can draw out the hidden talents or hidden side of anyone or anything. Can rouse and strengthen the power that others have over their own lives and talents, showing them their (previously hidden) worth.
Venus in Scorpio can be very possessive, although their magnetism should be enough to keep someone close by. Love lives can be stormy, only because they want to experience the highs and the lows – and the fun of making up. Famous people with Venus in Scorpio include: opera singer Joan Sutherland, actress Mary Martin, Queen Marie Antoinette, actress Patty Duke, singer Connie Francis, pacifist Mohandas Gandhi, tycoon J. Paul Getty, evangelist Billy Graham, actress Sophia Loren and pianist Vladimir Horowitz.
Venus at 3 degrees Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces at 2:33 am Saturday. Venus and Neptune together make for that treacherous “in love with love” dreamy-eyed mood that leads one down the primrose path. You tend to fall for all the wrong people, people who may not be what they say they are. Best to stay home and watch the late movie. Might be good for looking at cameras.
Mercury at 9 degrees Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn at 4:28 pm Saturday. This is great for doing heavy research or ferreting out the truth in your best Sam Spade impression. The square indicates it won't be easy, nothing will be handed to you, and you will have to shake a lot of trees before the apples of truth fall into your hands.
Mars at 11 degrees Leo trines Uranus in Aries at 4:56 pm Saturday. Ooh, here's a good opportunity to buy that new computer or car you've had your eyes on. I've told you before that good aspects between Mars and Uranus favor buying anything mechanical, electronic, electrical, etc. So this category covers everything from cars, computers and cameras to some little gadget from Radio Shack. You could install the new garage door opener this weekend, too.
