Your Milky Way Horoscope Nov. 17-23, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
Full Moon at 25 degrees, 26' Taurus (conjunct bad-boy star Algol) at 10:16 am Sunday, Nov. 17. Moon is trine Jupiter, exalted in Cancer, so that represents a good deal of help which ameliorates any bad that comes from the lunation. The state of Israel (May 14, 1948) has its Sun and Ascendant conjunct Algol; will they make another of their surprise attacks on a neighbor? Alex Trenoweth has an interesting essay on Algol at http://alextrenoweth.blogspot.com/2011/05/caput-algol.html
Mars at 20 degrees Virgo sextiles Jupiter in Cancer at 9:49 am Tuesday. Mars plus Jove spells a bit of luck in everything, and extra physical and competitive energy which needs to be burned off. Your physical battery gets charged up! You can get really cranky if you do not have an outlet for this energy so make time for sports and games. Legal decisions (Jupiter) may go in your favor. New business ventures or other projects are likely to be a success unless other major aspects or progressions deny it.
Mercury at 9 degrees Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn at 9:07 pm Wednesday. Pluto digs down deep for more information, more details (Mercury) in a relentless quest for answers. We may investigate subjects in fields like astrology, psychology, reincarnation, and other mysteries of the mind and soul; we browse bookstores or attend lectures. (We may also play at puzzle-solving for fun and relaxation, anything from doing Sudoku to reading mystery novels.) This transit ties in with Chiron virtually standing still at 9 degrees Pisces the last quarter of the year. It may be that some of us will have to face the (medical) music, have the surgery they have put off for months, or at least get a proper diagnosis of what troubles them.
The Sun enters Sagittarius at 10:48 pm Thursday, ushering in the annual holiday season of splurges in shopping and pigging out and just generally ignoring one's regimens of diet or budget or anything else for that matter. Sun in Sag types want to be free – or at least feel that they are free in some part of their lives even if they are wage slaves like everyone else. Can be horribly pompous and expect to be acknowledged as the authority in whatever; needs to be taken down a peg at times. Still they have interesting things to say, even if they are miles off base. A good Sag is able to pick up people who are down, and set them back on course re-inspired with Sagittarian optimism. Their legendary luck often relies on uncanny hunches. Not very steady in applying self to a course of study or career, unless he or she has a spouse who motivates him.
A brilliant conversationalist but often cannot apply that verbal skill to an orderly thesis or even an editorial. Dismisses tedious work as mere petty details, which he leaves to underlings. Loves the outdoors and most sports, and is usually an excellent and gifted athlete. Famous people with the Sun in Sag include: Frank Sinatra, Mary Martin, James Thurber, Connie Francis, Mark Twain, Patty Duke, John Osborne, Jane Fonda, Joe DiMaggio, Ludwig van Beethoven, Margaret Chase Smith, and former German chancellor Willy Brandt.
Venus at 16 degrees Capricorn sextiles Saturn in Scorpio at 1:46 pm Saturday. Venus with Capricorn is actually a pretty good combo, with Venus softening the usually austere lines of Saturn. It is a pleasure (Venus) to do one's duty (Saturn) for a loved one; it is a labor of love. We discuss what our mutual expectations (Saturn) are in a relationship (Venus). Venus is able to apply herself to detailed work in arts or crafts. Business related to the arts goes well, so if you have works you would like handled by a gallery, make an appointment to show your portfolio. Juno at 13 degrees Aquarius squares Saturn; one person tries to dominate while the other wants equality. Meanwhile Venus highlights sharing and intimacy, even tho one party may want too much in the way of constant approval.
