Your Milky Way Horoscope March 23-29, 2014
By Milky Way Maid
Dear Readers-- I continue to recover from an episode of blood clots on the lungs. Thanks for your good thoughts and get-well wishes. Please visit the website of the National Blood Clot Alliance at StopTheClot.org to learn more about blood clots and when you might need to see a doctor about it.
Mercury at 11 degrees Pisces trines Jupiter in Cancer at 9:11 am Wednesday. Jupiter is the higher octave of Mercury since both are mental planets; that means this should be a fine day for studies, for enrolling in the right college program for you, or for finding a teacher or tutor or guru.
Mercury at 13 degrees Pisces sextiles Pluto in Capricorn at 1:30 am Friday. Mercury and Pluto together are excellent for digging down thru research files, doing forensic accounting, or any other type of detective work.
Venus at 22 degrees Aquarius trines Mars in Libra at 3:05 pm Saturday. As you can probably guess Venus and Mars in any harmonious aspect favor romantic relationships, or actually any type of close partnership. It is even good for buying or selling, if they rule the buyer and seller in a horary chart.
Venus at 22 degrees Aquarius squares Saturn in Scorpio at 5:14 pm Saturday. Venus with Saturn can be either good or bad; it can mean a difficult time in a relationship, or it can mean formalizing the relationship with an engagement or wedding. The square tends to accent the stresses, a separation or perhaps having to work hard at clearing up problems.

POPE FRANCIS – I finally posted a little article on the new Pope Francis and also a kind of book review on a book that accidentally talks about ancient astronomy. The article on Pope Francis is here: http://milkywayastrology.wordpress.com/2013/06/02/a-look-at-the-new-pope-franciss-astro-charts/ And the article on the best book that both is and is not about ancient astronomy is here: http://milkywayastrology.wordpress.com/2013/06/02/the-best-book-about-ancient-astronomy-that-isnt-about-astrology-per-se/

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 – Juno is aspected by Mercury on Wednesday and Friday, and errors on your part may be found by auditors or other coworkers. Take correction with good grace so that this does not happen again. The Moon is in Aries from 9:54 pm Saturday and stays thru the weekend. The Moon makes no aspects however, so you are probably free to follow your own agenda.
TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The best time this week may be early Monday (about 6 am) if you want to reach a friend or your old professor. Friday afternoon is also favorable for you, if needing a favor from a relative or neighbor. Remember to use your best smile. Your ruler Venus is active this Saturday with a trine to Mars in Libra and a square to Saturn in Scorpio; your mate might have plenty of cash on hand but be reluctant to hand it over unless you “work” for it.
GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Wednesday is very favorable for brainstorming regarding work, career, or financial matters. Saturday afternoon is very favorable for air signs to make time for romantic relationships; take a day trip together, make plans for the future, or just enjoy being together whatever you do. Saturday is especially favorable for Geminis to hold a brainstorming session to gather new ideas or try to predict the future. Take good notes and save the winnowing out for another time.
CANCER - June 21-July 22 – On Monday morning, Jupiter in your sign is ready to move to a foreign country, or otherwise over-react to issues with your current home. Wednesday morning is much more favorable for actually dealing with personal or educational matters, so walk into the office and ask to speak to someone about college finances or whatever else is on your mind. Your sense of well-being returns Friday afternoon, and can leak out to the benefit of everyone in the workplace.
LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The week is not particularly favorable for you but you tend to make your own luck anyway. If you are involved in a family business or would like to be, Wednesday may be quite significant for that. You could be asked to join the crew or staff. It'll be fun! Really! The other big trine is on Saturday and involves your mate and possibly another relative; perhaps you could get together and start making plans for the wedding, or that honeymoon you could never take before this.
VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mars in your money house gets a welcome trine from Venus the cash queen on Saturday afternoon; there is a chance you could find a way to pay off or finance a debt, so it doesn't hurt to ask. Ruler Mercury gets positive aspects on early Monday morning, very positive on Wednesday morning, and gets emotional on Friday night. Friday night is actually favorable for writing a heartfelt letter or calling someone you have been meaning to talk to and catch up with.
LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Wednesday is very favorable for brainstorming regarding work, career, or financial matters. Your ruler Venus is conjunct the Moon on Thursday; ask for that favor and you shall receive. Saturday afternoon is very favorable for air signs to make time for romantic relationships; take a day trip together, make plans for the future, or just enjoy being together whatever you do. Your ruler Venus is activated on Saturday you cannot let this day go by without at least talking with your life partner.
SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – On Tuesday, Saturn in your sign gets some relief from a kindly Moon sextile; maybe you can swap some work for a favor. Wednesday morning should be a great time for possibly holding a brainstorming session with creative people or brainiacs. Be sure to make good notes of even flimsy-looking ideas, because sifting through them should be left for another time. Even better would be to work on creative pursuits; take a camera or easel to a scenic place to work.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag Sunday until about 4 pm. Early risers are full of energy and willing to go on a little hike to find signs of spring. Ruler Jupiter receives unfavorable transits on Monday morning, but very favorable transits on Wednesday morning and Friday afternoon. So keep that in mind if making appointments or walking into a business office. I do have to mention a caution for Friday morning when confusion can reign at home and even make you late for work.
CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from 4:03 pm Sunday till Tuesday night. Relationships late Sunday night are apt to be strained, but probably only a matter of fatigue, so get your rest and deal with things another time. Early risers on Monday can take care of a lot of correspondence. Mid-morning might find you over-reacting to some issues about your home. Try to relax with a nice mystery novel later in the day. Early risers on Tuesday set a heavy agenda for themselves and get most of it done.
AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius from 6:39 pm Tuesday till Thursday night. False starts mar Tuesday night. Wednesday morning is excellent for taking a class or for a meeting of the minds in general. You enjoy being able to personalize a program or app that afternoon. Your energy is good on Thursday but the Moon being void almost all day does not favor new business or work matters. Venus is conjunct the Moon on Thursday; ask for that favor and you shall receive.
PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from 8:10 pm till Saturday night. Friday is a lazy day feeling, although by afternoon you may feel like exploring new places. Dinner out with your mate is fine, but you really enjoy conversation or listening to a lecture Friday night. Saturday morning favors a serious discussion with a mentor type. Saturday might see matters related to a family business or legacy in progress.
