Your Milky Way Horoscope March 31-April 6, 2013


By Milky Way Maid

Happy Easter! Easter Sunday is marked by Venus at 11 degrees Aries sextile Jupiter in Gemini at 10:49 am, promising lots of sweets in everyone's baskets. Wishes can come true, since the Easter Bunny might be a little too generous about filling those baskets. People feel outgoing and optimistic. Families feel like going to a community-sponsored event or visiting the zoo Sunday rather than just celebrate at home.

The Sun at 11 degrees Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn at 11:03 pm Sunday. Don't bother beating your head against a brick wall because you can't win this time. Cardinal signs and especially Aries natives will be stressed, ah, let's say challenged to the max. And if you lose this round, just chalk it up as a learning experience and move along.

The Sun at 11 degrees Aries sextiles Jupiter in Gemini at 8:24 am Monday. Now see, here's how the wheel turns. Yesterday ya couldn't catch a break with that Sun-Pluto square. Today, everything is niceness and roses and you catch the lucky bounce of the football. So maybe it evens out, I don't know.

Obviously 11 degrees of all the signs will be activated this week so check if you have any natal or progressed planets at or near those degrees. And keep notes on what happens this week for future reference.

The Moon is void-of-course on Monday from 1 am till 1:35 am Tuesday, void-of-course on Wednesday from 6:35 am till 4:41 am Thursday, and on Friday afternoon from 1:22 pm till 9 am Saturday morning. This is pretty unusual to have three long periods of v-o-c moons in one week. Stick to routine matters during these periods – EXCEPT FOR MONDAY. Because the Moon is in a sign of Jupiter on Monday (in Sag) it forms an opportunity period. Last aspect before going v-o-c is a Moon trine Mars, so you could use Monday to get back on your New Year's resolution to exercise, or you could try out for an athletic team (anything from soccer to baseball to darts).

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 – Easter Sunday has many positive aspects affecting you, and you may be in a surprisingly spiritual frame of mind. On Monday you may luck out in regards to a legal problem which becomes a non-event. Try not to mouth off to the boss Tuesday afternoon; he may not appreciate your sense of humor. Midday Friday favors a luncheon with friends. On Saturday you may be quite content to laze by the pool all afternoon.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – If you go anywhere for Easter, I am betting it is a family cabin up in the mountains somewhere. Things may be going on behind the scenes that will ultimately improve your finances. Tuesday evening is a good time to pick a good affirmation and work with it. Thursday night may be very frustrating and requests may be be refused. Saturday offers a respite and a holiday mood; might be a good date for a day trip, or just zoning out on movies.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Jupiter in your sign is activated several times this week so I hope you will be able to capitalize on it. A luncheon or afternoon with an unusual friend Sunday promises lots of laughs. Very easy to overdo at dinner that same night. On Monday morning you learn of a huge favor offered by a friend. Try to avoid blowing the budget Tuesday afternoon. Friday morning is auspicious for you, with multiple friends or organizations stepping in with offers.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – You may be faced with changes to the schedule Tuesday afternoon; roll with the punches. On Wednesday morning, you ride herd on staff to keep them from starting on jobs before they understand the specs. A laugh Thursday morning helps everyone relax a bit before starting the work day. Career goals gain support Friday morning. The Moon in compatible Pisces on Saturday is ideal for a holiday-type mood as you relax with family.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Aspects this week in compatible Aries favor projects in college, publishing, or court house. The Moon in fire-sign Sag for Easter Sunday raises the fun level and makes everything more festive. Decorate with colorful banners or flags in the house and yard. A friend may introduce you to a good lawyer or other key person on Monday. On Tuesday you find the ambition to start on a project after work. Friday morning and midday are also auspicious for perks coming thru people your partner knows.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Easter Sunday is probably spent at home, with lots of visitors stopping in for lunch or games for the kids. The Moon's aspects from compatible Capricorn on Tuesday helps you be more focused on listing goals and checking items off the to-do list. Stick to routine on Wednesday. Friday morning is generally favorable for workplace relationships and team projects. Saturday's Moon in compatible Pisces favors relaxing with family in a public place, such as parks or other open places.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Easter Sunday may be spent at local holiday-related events like an egg roll or museum scavenger hunt. Tuesday afternoon may stress you out when appointments are canceled. Friday morning is very pleasant if spending time with the children or on creative pursuits. Saturday may find you lost in contemplation of beauty at least part of the day.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – This Easter Sunday may favor finding the egg with a nice prize inside. The Moon's aspects from compatible Capricorn on Tuesday helps you be more focused on listing goals and checking items off the to-do list. Thursday night can be frustrating when you keep hearing that ugly word “no” but don't get discouraged. Friday morning is much more easy-going and people are much more helpful. Saturday's Moon in watery Pisces favors knocking off for a holiday-type outing.

SAGITTARIUSNov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag as the week begins, until early Tuesday. You are playing your fave song, Born To Be Wild, midday Sunday. Dinner hour is a harmonious time with the children; encourage them to tell you how they did this morning on the egg hunt. See note above about the v-o-c moon on Monday; take advantage of an opportunity period.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from 1:35 am Tuesday till early Thursday. You may meet a local celeb Tuesday morning. A parent may drop in unexpectedly in the afternoon. You may have to take control of a situation late Tuesday before someone puts footprints on your back. Rushing to get ready for work Wednesday may lead to some mix-ups so check your bag before heading out the door.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius from 4:41 am Thursday till Saturday morning. A bit of humor lightens the start of the day Thursday. Still, you are not inclined to grant favors (and not likely to get one) mid morning. Moon aspects are generally pleasant Friday but since the Moon is void, will not probably lead to anything concrete.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – Easter morning is likely to see you overdo on the candy, so cool it. The Moon's aspects from compatible Capricorn on Tuesday helps you be more focused on listing goals and checking items off the to-do list. The Moon is in Pisces from 9 am exactly Saturday thru the weekend. You probably will feel like going to the early show Saturday at the cinema, and possibly just watch one film after another in a personal film-fest.

Your Milky Way Horoscope March 24-30, 2013


By Milky Way Maid

Mars at 11 degrees Aries sextiles Jupiter in Gemini at 6:27 am Tuesday, and later Mars squares Pluto in Capricorn at 11:44 pm. Mars-Jove aspects can be very lucky, even the square, in matters of risk-taking and sports contests. Friends may dare each other to beat their best game – at darts, at cards, at anything that ends in finite scores that determine the winner. Mars can also be a bit too impulsive here – there's that Aries influence again – but you usually know what the odds are of something breaking in your favor.

We have a lovely Full Moon at 6 degrees, 52' Libra at 5:27 am Wednesday. The Moon applies to a trine to Jupiter in Gemini (exact about 1 pm), giving a positive and optimistic glow to the day.

Wow, a unusual triple conjunction will occur between 1:05 pm and 8:38 pm Thursday, when the Sun is conjunct Venus, then Venus is conjunct Uranus at 7:01 pm, and finally the Sun is conjunct Uranus, all at 8 degrees Aries. Normally a Venus-Uranus conjunction will bring a very unusual person or a foreigner into one's romantic arena, altho usually a short-term relationship or contact. With the Sun involved, too, that emphasizes that your interest is in the PERSON not just the clothing, accent, interests, etc of this new contact. Aries does tend to emphasize the short-term nature of the contact, altho if one party decides that this new Other fits somehow into his/her vision of life, then indeed it could stretch out into a long liaison. And, on another level, this Other may teach you how to unlock the uniqueness of your own selfhood.

Mercury squares Jupiter in Gemini at 12:56 pm Friday, making it rather difficult to sail through classes or homework. While it might be preferable to schedule an exam while under the sextile, exams really fit the meaning of the square as a challenge. You will really have to know your stuff to pass, so study up beforehand and do so with a purpose.

Coming soon, an article on the new Pope Francis, who replaced the retiring, ailing Pope Benedict. Best Wishes to the new pontiff on his future in the “hot seat” of Catholicism's most challenging decade.

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 – Thursday may be either the best day or the worst day of your life, when an unusual triple conjunction occurs over the course of the day, involving Sun, Uranus and lovely Venus. You are likely to meet an unusual, maybe even a revolutionary, person, in the sense of someone who changes the status quo in whatever field he/she operates in. Since Wednesday's Full Moon in Libra tends to accent relationship issues, this other person may be significant to your romantic life as a serious partner.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – Wednesday's Full Moon in that other Venus-ruled sign of Libra tends to accent your own relationships, no matter what type, with an extra dose of affection and expressions of the high regard in which you are held. Thursday's triple conjunction of Sun/Uranus/Venus occurs in your solar twelfth house, where a new person in your life remains a secret even to your inner circle. Friday might be a good time to check your bank statement for errors.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Wednesday's Full Moon in Libra will tend to open up options in your romantic life or in opportunities for creative expression. Thursday's triple conjunction of Sun/Uranus/Venus occurs in your solar eleventh house, where a friend introduces you to a very unusual friend. You may also have opportunities to take a long trip, possibly sponsored by a club or charitable organization. Good Friday may pose a chance to prove you are ready to advance to the next level.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Wednesday's Full Moon in Libra will tend to promise an upturn in family fortunes; you may also create a little hideaway corner in the home or garden. Thursday's triple conjunction of Sun/Uranus/Venus occurs in your solar tenth house, where sudden changes with your employer rule the day. One possibility is that the company may announce a surprise change of ownership or management.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The week begins with the Moon void of course for Sunday morning. Stick to routine matters. Thursday's triple conjunction of Sun/Uranus/Venus occurs in your solar ninth house, where exciting and possibly foreign people walk onto your campus or into your courtroom. Legal matters may take unexpected turns, and many changes are asked of your manuscript. Midday Friday may be stressful when information may not be readily at hand or may conflict with what experts believe.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon is in Virgo from 11:49 am Sunday till Tuesday night. Sunday night favors a visit to the flicks with your mate, who gets lost in the world of make-believe. The Moon is void of course from 8:45 am Monday till 5:32 pm Tuesday, so stick to routine matters. A positive Full Moon in your solar second house of finances offers a happy conclusion to a legal matter.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from 5:32 pm Tuesday till Thursday night. On Tuesday, your partner may look to a relative for some legal advice. The Wednesday Full Moon in your sign offers some cause for optimism, especially in terms of ninth-house stuff like college, legal matters, or personal philosophy. Thursday is jam-packed with opportunities to meet a very unusual person, someone who may become a new personal or professional partner. On Friday, statements made in court by witnesses may not jibe with pre-trial affidavits so cross-examination is needed for clarification.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Wednesday's Full Moon in Libra in your solar twelfth house offers hope of fulfilling secret dreams. The Moon is in Scorpio from 8:54 pm Thursday till very late Saturday. You may feel like there is no cause for optimism early Friday afternoon, but a chat with a good friend or a child may turn you around. Saturday has no exact aspects while the Moon remains in Scorpio, but if the Moon contacts natal planets it could be a nice night for spending an enjoyable outing with dear ones.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Wednesday's Full Moon occurs in Libra, in your solar eleventh house of friends and groups; you and your partner may both involve yourselves in club activities over the short term. Thursday's triple conjunction of Sun/Uranus/Venus occurs in your solar fifth house, where sudden inspiration may come from an unusual or foreign artist, who brings out a new level of unique talent from deep inside you. The Moon is in Sag from 11:13 pm Saturday thru the rest of the weekend, with no exact aspects Saturday; stick to routine matters today.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Wednesday's Full Moon occurs in Libra, in your solar tenth house of career, promising a good month for professional reputation-enhancement. Thursday's triple conjunction of Sun/Uranus/Venus occurs in your solar fourth house, where a guest may upset some, while charming other members of the family. Good Friday may be challenging for your staff to satisfy customer demands for information or product.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Wednesday's Full Moon occurs in Libra, in your solar ninth house, offers a good outcome for legal or collegiate matters. Thursday's triple conjunction of Sun/Uranus/Venus occurs in your solar third house, where daily life becomes chaotic with broken or missed appointments. Stay cool and roll with the punches. Good Friday offers you a chance to show what you know and why you chose certain investments or speculations over others.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – Wednesday's Full Moon occurs in Libra, in your solar eighth house, promises good progress in pooled investments or insurance. Thursday's triple conjunction of Sun/Uranus/Venus occurs in your solar second house, where financial insights may reveal the real story although some facts may upset you. Good Friday can be stressful in the sense that you may be grilled a bit over where your data came from.

Your Milky Way Horoscope March 17-23, 2013


By Milky Way Maid

Yay, Mercury goes direct at 4:03 pm Sunday, at 5 degrees 39' of Pisces. The station comes only 2 and a half hours after Mercury squares the Moon, so we might not immediately feel like leaping into social groups and chatting away. The good news is your closet and junk drawer have probably been cleaned out. 

The Sun enters Aries at 7:02 am Wednesday. The Sun in Aries is very independent and will do as he pleases regardless of whether you give them the go-ahead. Can aggravate others by insisting they put him first. However, they sometimes have a natural leadership quality, and their exuberance can be catching. They can be pioneering adventurers who start their own companies or go off to raise coffee on a plantation. When he focuses on just one goal, can achieve success in anything. Always young at heart and with a contagious enthusiasm. Famous people with the Sun in Aries include: Gregory Peck, Doris Day, Charlie Chaplin, Arturo Toscanini, Thomas Jefferson, Vincent Van Gogh, Warren Beatty, astronaut Virgil Grissom, Julie Christie, poet Robert Frost, photographer Edward Steichen, and J. William Fulbright.

Venus also enters Aries the next day – at 11:15 pm Thursday. Venus in Aries is a bit impatient, and not exactly the sweet nurturing type. May have house plants but they better be cactus because this Venus doesn't always remember to water stuff. This Venus is very independent in relationships, and usually sets the agenda for any dates or parties. Can help others to improve their self-reliance and assertiveness. Never a shrinking wallflower, this Venus almost always initiates new relationships. When they combine their gifts with good manners in asking for others' cooperation, they can be real movers and shakers. Famous people with Venus in Aries include: Audrey Hepburn, Mia Farrow, Henry Fonda, John Lennon, Bing Crosby, painter Willem de Kooning, rocket scientist J. Robert Oppenheimer, Henry Luce, baseballer Willie Mays, and politicians Laurence Rockefeller and Ted Kennedy.

Mars at 8 degrees Aries is conjunct Uranus at 2:17 pm Friday. This is the classic signature of an accident or explosion, so take all safety precautions the three days before and after this aspect. Not that everyone's house will blow up, it's just that this is a major transit, after all, and even those not directly affected may be inconvenienced.

Your Milky Way Horoscope March 10-16, 2013


By Milky Way Maid

Mars enters its natural home, Aries, at 2:26 am Tuesday. Don't be surprised if you wake up extra early that day, just rarin' to go. For Aries, it is almost like a birthday or solar return when his ruler Mars returns to his home sign. Your batteries get recharged, and if your goals or plans have been vague or put on the back burner, that gets fixed in a hurry because your goals become clearer and you carve out doable portions for each day and each week.

Mars-in-Aries keywords are courage, initiative, and leadership. Mars-in-Aries wants to be first in everything – first in the door, first out the elevator, it can be exasperating! But bless 'em, these self-starters have bottomless energy and get something going every week, if not every month. Famous people with Mars in Aries include: author Charles Dickens, revolutionary Oliver Cromwell, golfer Jack Nicklaus, quarterback Joe Namath.

We have a New Moon at 3:51 pm Monday at 21 degrees, 24' Pisces. The Moon was conjunct Venus earlier that morning, signifying the exchange of favors or gifts with dear friends and others. However, the first aspect made by the Moon after this NM is a conjunction to Mars in Aries on Tuesday morning; hopefully this portends new romantic connections for some of us – it will depend on where Aries is in your natal chart.

The only other aspects this week are quick aspects to the Moon. Looking ahead, Mercury will go direct again on Sunday, March 17, at 4:03 pm. Mercury will be at 5 degrees, 39' of Pisces.

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 Moon is in Aries from 7:17 am Tuesday till Thursday afternoon. Words may come out with more of a zing than you mean to on Tuesday morning. Impatience can lead to accidents Tuesday night; plan everything out. You may be frustrated, too, when the Moon is void all day Wednesday and into Thursday morning, when attempts to reach others or close deals fall through. If you don't have an outlet for expression, get one pretty soon; you need something to burn off that excess energy.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – Your ruler Venus is happy to do a favor for a dear friend, and says yes when asked Monday morning. Mars enters your solar twelfth house of secret dreams on Tuesday; you need to find ways to manifest your private dreams. The Moon is in Taurus from 3:08 pm Thurs. thru Sat. Going to the movies with a good friend may be extra enjoyable Thursday night, but it might be better if you do the driving. Frustration might be the keyword midday Friday. A Saturday spent with a friend or with a club can be very pleasant; think of where you could go for a day trip.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Mars enters your solar eleventh house on Tuesday; arguments with friends may break out, or you may engage in sports or rivalries with your companions or on team sports. People will sure know who you're rooting for! Ideally, you channel some of your abundant energy into a local humanitarian group, perhaps its fund drive or auction. Your ruler Mercury is slowing to a station next Sunday, so you may feel like you are walking through quicksand this week till it turns direct.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Mars enters your solar tenth house of career on Tuesday; you may earn your salary by Mars-ruled occupations like surgeon, butcher, barber, athlete, or via fees and commissions. Rivalry or contests may figure in there, too. Your best days this week may be Monday morning's New Moon in compatible Pisces, and Moon in Taurus Thursday afternoon thru Saturday. Saturday looks very nice for travel or attending a travelogue.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Mars enters your solar ninth house of travel and law on Tuesday; lawsuits and tuition debts may rear their ugly heads during this period; make sure to keep receipts in a safe place so you can prove what you paid. The Aries influence is that you may file suit, or threaten to, before trying to resolve things out of court; don't be a hothead. Another expression is the drive to reach intellectual accomplishments such as a degree or a tenured position.
