Your Milky Way Horoscope JULY 6-12, 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.
Venus at 16 degrees Gemini sextiles Uranus in Aries at 2:49 am Monday. Pleasant surprises regarding money get plopped in your lap – that's always nice, so go ahead and buy a lottery ticket or two. We enjoy meeting people who are very different from ourselves, perhaps a foreigner, somebody with an accent, a very independent sort, a bohemian, someone with unusual talents or living arrangements. There is often a romantic attraction to such people, although this usually does not last long-term.
The Sun at 16 degrees Cancer squares Uranus in Aries at 12:23 pm Tuesday. The Sun with Uranus often denotes a change agent of some kind. We often resent anyone who tries to force us to change, but when these transits arise, we are usually in great need of shaking up our lives a bit. The square often means we find ourselves trying to fight City Hall, and even though City Hall almost always wins, we keep trying to force it to be more responsive to what we believe is the will of the people. With both planets at the world degree in cardinal signs, this may trigger events of global interest, so watch the news tonight.
The Sun at 16 degrees Cancer trines Saturn in Scorpio at 8:29 pm Tuesday. This follows close on the heels of the square to Uranus, and at the same degree. In this case, The Rules are your friends; by contrast, the square to Uranus always tends to try to buck the rules. Some of us may receive honors or recognition for an achievement, or at least derive a sense of accomplishment for doing what we did. The Sun on a world degree may denote that someone already in the public eye receives an honor.
We have a Full Moon at 20 degrees 3' Capricorn, at 7:25 am Saturday. It is preceded by the Moon sextile Saturn in Scorpio, and succeeded by a square to Mars in Libra. The Sun is conjunct Jupiter, which magnifies the effect of the current Grand Cross in cardinal signs; major stresses will afflict nations such as China, Great Britain, Japan, and others. And natives of those cardinal signs will similarly be heavily stressed – um, we're supposed to say challenged, not stressed – tho fortunately the cardinal-sign people are generally quite thrilled to have another mountain to climb.

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 - Ceres and Vesta in your solar seventh house favor taking some quiet time this week to work on relationship bonds; perhaps setting up a weekly date or picnic lunch would be a pleasurable way to make memories. Ruler Mars makes a pleasant aspect midday Thursday; you might enjoy a chat over lunch about spouses and tips off the internet on keeping them happy. The Chiron and Pallas opposition this week affects your health houses; see your practitioner and schedule those checkups you keep avoiding.
TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – Ruler Venus makes a happy aspect to Uranus early Monday for a surprise money windfall, or more likely a gift from a secret angel. Worst day may be Wednesday morn when your affections are not reciprocated, but probably merely because the other person is in a hurry. Saturday morning's Full Moon in earth sign Capricorn is likely favorable for legal matters, publishing, the internet, or planning long trips. The Chiron-Pallas opposition is on your fifth and eleventh house axis, where you may needlessly sacrifice your own creative interests due to peer pressure.
GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Best day may be Sunday morning when you receive promises or offers of help; best to nail people down on specifics though. Also Tuesday pm favors asking your mate to be generous with you. Ceres and Vesta in your solar fifth house favor taking some quiet time this week to focus on artistic pursuits that are just to please yourself. The Chiron-Pallas opposition is on your tenth and fourth house angles, which may force you to sacrifice family life for career goals or vice versa.
CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Moonchildren are especially active and happy when the Sun is in their sign. Plan your pool parties or trips to the beach this month, inviting as many kids over as possible. You're the kind who really enjoy cramming the car full of kids, wet bathing suits, and the dog on a fine summer day. Jupiter will exit your sign next week, so let the good times roll while they can.
LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - Ceres and Vesta in your solar third house favor taking some quiet time this week to get re-acquainted with relatives or neighbors, perhaps setting up an arrangement for someone who can babysit until you get home from work. The Chiron and Pallas opposition this week affects your money houses, so you may be forced to go to a financial counselor to work out a plan to better manage your personal funds.
VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 –Ruler Mercury is in a lucky aspect Sunday morning; some money may be due you from a legal judgment. It may be hard for you to get a word in edgewise Thursday night. Chiron in Pisces opposes Pallas in your sign this week; get to a health practitioner asap for nagging problems. Saturday morning's Full Moon in earth sign Capricorn is likely favorable for dealings with children or for opportunities to nurture your creative talents.
LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra till Sunday afternoon. Early risers may receive offers of help and sympathy if you will only share details of your situation; try to swap favors with people you know. Try to avoid over-doing things midday Sunday, such as going to the all-you-can-eat buffet too many times. Ruler Venus makes a happy aspect to Uranus early Monday for a surprise money windfall, possibly from asking your spouse nicely for a little something.
SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from 3:34 pm Sunday till Tuesday night. Very early risers on Monday get inspired by the sunrise. Early afternoon favors having a discussion with your mentor. Monday night favors social events, although you might leave a bit early to catch up on work before turning in. A professional may upset you Tuesday with a list of recommended changes. Dinner hour with a legal eagle associate gives you reason for optimism. Ruler Mars makes a pleasant aspect midday Thursday; you might enjoy a chat over lunch about money management tips or shopping the sales.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from 9:25 pm Tuesday till late Thursday. Family life can be pretty chaotic Wednesday morning. You may feel ignored by someone you love on Thursday morning. Get outside for a walk during the Thursday lunch break. You can get a lot done Thursday night if you just settle down and start in with it. The Chiron-Pallas opposition is on your tenth and fourth house angles, which may force you to sacrifice family life for career goals or vice versa.
CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from 11:25 pm Thursday till Saturday night. You enjoy a Friday lunch-hour discussion about which new movies to go see.

Ceres and Vesta in your solar tenth house favor taking some quiet time this week to refocus career goals and motivate yourself.
AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Ruler Uranus makes a nice aspect to Venus on Monday; you enjoy meeting strangers especially those who hail from foreign shores or have an accent.
