Your Milky Way Horoscope May 25-31, 2014
By Milky Way Maid
Dear Readers-- 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 29 Gemini sextiles Venus in Aries at 9:58 am Wednesday. This is followed by a New Moon at 7 degrees 21' Gemini at 2:40 pm. Ooh, late degree of Aries and Gemini favors starting writing a book – any kind of book, a novel or cookbook or biography, just anything. Or if you really are not inclined to do any writing, you might take a very pleasant drive out to the countryside to see lovely signs of spring. You need to recharge your Beauty quota with scenic mountains or beach or fields. If it contacts native planets, you may find it easier to express your affection for dear ones. The Gemini New Moon will reinforce themes of communication (keeping things light, cocktail party chatter) as well as transit or travel. You may have to do more traveling for work, for example.
The Sun at 7 degrees Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces at 7:44 pm Wednesday. Any planet in combination with Neptune brings the risk of fraud or deception, but with the Sun there could indicate SELF-deception. You might be only fooling yourself if you minimize warning signs of trouble. Best to be proactive and check things out. Also a good chance of getting lost if you out looking for an address without good directions on how to get there.
Venus enters its home sign of Taurus at 9:46 pm Wednesday. Venus in Taurus likes to touch things. She likes the feel of silk, velour, polished stones or woods, and your nice peach-fuzzy face. Likes to smell the roses, too, or a bar of lavender soap, or any of zillions of small luxuries. Needs to learn to share material possessions, maybe loan out that garden tool or a book or two. Some people feel that there is no such thing as platonic love where a Venus Taurus is involved, but I am not so sure about that. Venus in Taurus is pretty conventional, preferring to marry rather than live with someone or play the field, although in later life they might feel that such rules don't matter anymore. They want to fall in love and know that it will last forever. Has artistic sensitivities, and may be a musician, artist, or a mere collector of pretty things. FAMOUS PEOPLE with Venus in Taurus include: Doris Day, Charlie Chaplin, Richard Wagner, Bobby Darin, Ann-Margret, Paul McCartney, Hayley Mills, and Prince Edward.
Mercury enters Cancer at 5:12 am Thursday. Mercury (or the Moon) in Cancer has a prodigious memory, especially memories that are emotionally loaded. If well aspected, they are often great ones for knowing historical facts and dates. Sometimes their rational mind can be overwhelmed by emotional thoughts, so that their communication with other is at times filled with an emotional content that is not appropriate to the situation. Is capable of great emotional sensitivity and empathy, and can reach out to others in a caring way. Can be remarkably intuitive, of knowing something without knowing HOW they know it. Usually prefers to make decisions based on precedent rather than on daring innovations. Sometimes collects antiques or historical relics. FAMOUS PEOPLE with Mercury in Cancer include: actress Leslie Caron, Nelson and David Rockefeller, composer Igor Stravinsky, educator Thomas Mann, pianist Van Cliburn, singer-composer Paul Anka, Mary McCarthy.

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 as the week begins but only till Sunday evening. You may get someone to do you a favor Sunday morning about 10 am, possibly trading favors such as babysitting. The Moon is void all of Sunday afternoon so just stick to routine matters. Venus' entry Wednesday into your solar second house may bring some extra cold hard cash, particularly if you are selling items of decorative or artistic qualities. Also Wednesday's Mercury-Venus sextile touches your solar third house, so get going on that novel if you are ever going to write anything!
TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from 5:28 pm Sunday till the wee hours Wednesday. No aspects Sunday but the Memorial Day holiday has a Moon-Neptune sextile, favoring spending time doing lots of nothing with friends. You are in control of emotional situations Monday pm. The Moon is void after 5 am Tuesday, so stick to routine matters only. Venus' entry into your sign late Wednesday may bring as many gifts or favors as your birthday did!

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 12:48 am Wednesday till Friday morning. Take advantage of the Wednesday morning coffee break to start a new file for the novel you aim to write. The New Moon that afternoon will help reinforce that resolution, just be sure to apply lots of imagination to your fantasy tale; just take not to deceive yourself about a new, pie-in-the-sky career. Your energy is pretty good that afternoon for fun, romance or sports. The Moon is void all day Thursday so stick to routine matters. Your energy should be sky high Saturday morn.
CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Moon is in Cancer from 10:13 am Friday through the weekend. With both Moon and Mercury entering, you should feel a burst of cardinal energy about mid-morning Friday! Your speech may be a bit too emotionally loaded midday Friday, so watch for that. The afternoon favors spending time with a dear relative or neighbor. Be careful to get tasks off on the right foot Saturday morn. You may run into obstacles you cannot fight midday; just accept things you cannot change with grace. Mercury enters your sign Thursday; watch out for revealing Too Much Information.
LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Sunday morning from about 9:30 to noonish may be your best day of the week; you get plenty of offers of help from dear friends. Venus' entry into your solar tenth house may bring some perks to help you enjoy the career you have chosen. Mercury enters your solar twelfth house Thursday; you may damage relationships with inserting too much emotionally-charged speech into places where it does not belong.
VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Best day of the week may be Monday with the Moon in compatible Taurus; the coffee tastes so great in the morning, and you get sound advice from a mentor about 5:30 pm ET.

Wednesday's New Moon also accents law, college, publishing and long trips.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - Venus' entry Wednesday into your solar seventh house may bring a charming Significant Other into your life. Mercury enters your solar ninth house; you apply for licenses, titles, or other legal papers.
