Your Milky Way Horoscope AUG. 3-9, 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.
Mars at 6 degrees Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces at 8:14 am Thursday. Mars-Neptune trines often are very idealistic, very other worldly. Other people laugh off ideas under this transit as totally impractical, but sometimes a brilliant innovation in implementing it makes it totally workable. Mars with Neptune also can be quite creative in artistic expression, such as dance and poetry.
The Sun at 16 degrees Leo joins Mercury at 12:21 pm Friday. This is a key economic turning point, so keep an eye on what the stock market does. Do prices go up or down or sideways? Mercury getting a trine from Uranus may mean that more foreign funds come into the market, propping up prices. Sun and Mercury soon square Saturn, which may mean some kind of obstacle puts a fly in that ointment. The trine especially favors solid intuitive insights. You might try a bit of remote viewing, picturing a place you have been meaning to go to, and then compare your actual visit to your remote visit to see you accurate your were.
Mercury in turn trines Uranus in Aries at 4:14 pm Friday. We succeed in spreading the word via electronic or computer-based media. So go ahead and post to your blog, leave comments on articles online, start that media-managing project you had in mind these last few weeks.
Then the Sun trines Uranus in Aries at 8:36 pm Friday. You get some positive feedback for expressing your individuality. Maybe you take the stage on open mic night, and a bit of applause stokes your ego.
Finally Mercury at 16 degrees Leo squares Saturn in Scorpio at 10:50 pm Friday. You may act like an authority on a pet subject, but let's hope you have some actual cred regarding your chosen topic.
The Sun at 16 degrees Leo squares Saturn at 11:11 am Saturday. This aspect is usually associated with having to account for oneself or one's actions. This sometimes occurs as a result of getting a ticket or arrest that requires you to appear in court and explain things to a judge. Sometimes it is merely being called in to chat with the boss about your performance. So the message is, watch your self and ask if you would likely be questioned about it if seen by someone in authority.
Vesta enters Scorpio this week. Emma Donath says that this can spur a total regeneration of the personality, possibly accompanied by psychic talents. Scorpio can become more exacting in demands they place on themselves, as well as of others. If Scorpio is your ascendant, they latch onto a higher goal in life, kind of like a Holy Grail, something that is more of a spiritual quest than a mere hunt for material gains.

This guy writes a cool weekly astrology newsletter and sells astro books: Dave at www.astroamerica.com. NOTE: My deepest condolences on Dave's passing this past week, to his wife Elizabeth. It is such a shock, and I do hope that his wife will at least sell out the stock of hard-to-find books that he carried.
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 - Vesta enters your solar eighth house this week; you could be pretty frustrated if you were expecting spousal benefits (like insurance coverage or a Social Security benefit) to come through. They may be delayed quite a bit so just hang in there. Fire signs enjoy the Thursday sunrise and more. Ruler Mars trines Neptune later Thursday morn, when your intuition is pretty darn sharp. Make a point of nurturing your spouse's talents and lending moral support as he/she challenges self.
TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - Vesta enters your solar seventh house this week; you may be involved with someone who has little time for you, possibly due to a very demanding job or travel. You learn to be more self-reliant, though, and that is something that gratifies you. Fixed signs are frustrated Friday by authorities or deadlines; break down the tasks required of you into less-intimidating chunks. Ruler Venus is challenged by the selling game on Saturday; maybe you enjoy running your tag sale or marketing your crafts at a local shop.
GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - Vesta enters your solar sixth house this week; you may take a role in helping children or adults with learning problems just for the joy of seeing them improve. Your regular job, however, can prove frustrating and offer no intrinsic satisfaction at all in this period.
CANCER - June 21-July 22 - Vesta enters your solar fifth house this week; you may send the kids off to a late summer camp for a couple weeks. Take care of your health because missing your children so much can actually make you sick. Ceres spends its final week in your sign, so make the most of doing the little things that make everything special in the home and kitchen. Perfect your gourmet, healthful recipes and play with making your own e-cookbook to share with friends on the holidays.
LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Vesta enters your solar fourth house this week; you may have to take care of a family member through an illness, or take a parent into your own home. Think of it as a chance to draw closer together once more. Fire signs enjoy the Thursday sunrise and more. Fixed signs are frustrated Friday by authorities or deadlines; break down the tasks required of you into less-intimidating chunks. You enjoy playing matchmaker with friends this week, something you have done before but this time, I think you may strike it right.
VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Vesta enters your solar third house this week, improving your scholarly performance as you master its energies. You may even take a teaching position, even if you don't particularly enjoy it. Ruler Mercury gets a shot in the arm Friday, even though you cannot get off and running as fast as you might prefer. Pallas will soon leave your sign, but first it has to square Juno in Gemini; selling your expertise might be a challenge with someone who relies on his/her spouse for what you do.
LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Vesta enters your solar second house this week, restricting spending; make that budget and stick to it for best results. The budget you draw up Monday morning is one you can stick to. Ruler Venus gets a happy trine Monday afternoon, and life feels very good. Also affecting your finances is a double square Friday, one that might entail a temporary interruption in cash flow, possibly when a cash machine is out-of-service. Ruler Venus is out of sorts Saturday morning tho, moping over imagined slights; treat yourself to a mini spa experience of your own improvised design.
SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from Sunday till Tuesday morning. The Moon conjoins Mars in Scorpio about 7:30 am, meaning that your emotions may express themselves rather emphatically; try not to bite anyone, but get out for a walk or run. Midday favors an early matinee at the cinema. You set your nose to the grindstone Monday morning. Monday afternoon favors sharing love and favors with a family member. Ruler Mars trines Neptune Thursday morn, favoring dance class-- at least follow your intuition which will be keen. Vesta enters your sign this week, squaring Jupiter; you latch onto a personal Grail quest that means something to you.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from 6:19 am Tuesday till Thursday morning. You are feeling wildly optimistic Tuesday afternoon but try to get a reality check before buying any big-ticket item. Best day may be Wednesday when you get easy trines to Sun, Mercury, and Uranus; lucky bounces of the football are likely. Ruler Jupiter likely to go way over the top Saturday night, so keep someone nearby who is a sensible influence. Vesta enters your solar twelfth house this week; you are compelled by motives you do not really understand to do actions you cannot explain to others.
CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from 9:39 am Thursday till Saturday morning. Thursday night is quite pleasant for a night on the town with sporting friends. Friday is busy with matters related to insurance or estates; you will have lots of questions and lots of paperwork to get taken care of. Vesta enters your solar eleventh house this week; it really is not necessary to give up your art class to go hang out with friends, but if that's what you want to do . . .
AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Vesta enters your career house this week; higher authorities make demands on you. Fixed signs are frustrated Friday by authorities or deadlines; break down the tasks required of you into less-intimidating chunks. The Moon is in Aquarius from 9:52 am Saturday thru the weekend. Late morning is rather challenging and your mate may be extra frustrated, possibly with you and then again maybe not. You may have to do a little hand-holding. A Full Moon in your sign is coming Sunday, Aug. 10 so make plans to catch rays that afternoon.
PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - Vesta enters your solar ninth house this week; travel may have a more serious purpose than mere recreation. You might travel to take a course, or study with a master of a given craft or business. Ruler Jupiter is rather over-confident on Tuesday (and Saturday too), although you never object to excess. Mars trines your other ruler, Neptune, on Thursday morning and you feel like dancing thru the day. Best day may be Thursday pm when you discuss movies with friends perhaps over a nice wine.
