Your Milky Way Horoscope March 16-22, 2014
By Milky Way Maid
Mercury enters Pisces at 6:24 pm Monday. (Mercury was in Pisces briefly in February before going retrograde into Aquarius. Now Mercury is in Pisces for good until April 7.) Mercury in Pisces is more intuitive than academic, although natives can get good grades in school due to a very good memory. Mercury here can receive sharp perceptions, but have trouble communicating their insights clearly because of emotional baggage. Nevertheless, Pisces Mercury can rise above fears, and invite others to experience their psychic impressions. Cling to ideals, which have a healing quality in a chaotic world. Mercury in Pisces can be very creative, although natives often need a period of gestation for their ideas to percolate to the surface. Famous people with Mercury in Pisces include: Leontyne Price, Victor Hugo, Abraham Lincoln, Eugene McCarthy, Earl Warren, Sidney Poitier, Robert Frost, and W E B DuBois.
Venus at 11 degrees Aquarius sextiles Uranus in Aries at 3 pm Tuesday. A positive aspect like this between Venus and Uranus can bring a sudden attraction to a foreigner or someone with an accent, and end more happily than with the square or opposition. Alas a relationship is likely to not last much longer than it would with a stressful aspect – but you can still try to nail down that charming stranger.
The Sun enters Aries at 12:57 pm Thursday, marking the Vernal Equinox. Sun in Aries is active, a self-starter, an igniter – someone who initiates contact and projects. Aries natives like to feel independent, even tho they may wind up in a service job such as waiter or waitress so that they can change employers more easily when they need a change. Aries is not really good working as part of a team, unless it is to carry out a solo function such as sales, delivery, etc. Needs a way to express their dynamic energy, because being chained to a desk will not cut it with them. The Sun in Aries is assertive, kinetic, fiery, pioneering, adventuresome, competitive, ambitious, and inspiring. Needs to be his own boss, have his own home and family. Tends to jump into a situation before sizing things up or getting pointers from a pro. In other words, does not always look before leaping. Famous people with the Sun in Aries include: singer Doris Day, comedian Charlie Chaplin, Arturo Toscanini, patriot Thomas Jefferson, painter Vincent Van Gogh, composer Johann Sebastian Bach, astronaut Virgil Grissom, Henry Luce, poet Robert Frost, and J William Fulbright.
Mercury at 6 degrees Pisces is conjunct Neptune again at 4:16 pm Saturday. The Sun was conjunct Neptune on Feb. 23, so this could be the arrival of some news (Mercury) related to a person (Sun) known to you, depending on where it is in your own chart. In regards to any personal business, it definitely does NOT favor signing any contracts or estimates; something is sure to be left out or unclear. And you are likely to fill the gaps with wishful thinking rather than facts.
