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! Mercury enters your solar third house on Thursday; the phone may ring off the hook this month with people who want to cry onto your shoulder (sob stories and that kind of thing).

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. Venus' entry Wednesday into your solar ninth house may bring some good news re legal financial settlements, college grants, travel, etc. Mercury enters your solar eleventh house, bringing friends who want you to feel sorry for them. Friday from mid-morning to mid-afternoon is also pleasant with helpful suggestions from caring people.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - Venus' entry Wednesday into your solar eighth house may bring incentives from your insurance carrier to have health screenings done. Wednesday's New Moon also accents law, college, publishing and long trips. Mercury enters your solar tenth house, where emotion may not be welcome unless you channel it into making customers feel like the company cares about them. Trying to get an early start Saturday and rushing will only make for more work later when you have to redo everything.

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. Wednesday night is very unfavorable for dates; the charming young man or lady is not all he/she claims to be. Friday may be your best day, with the Moon in compatible Cancer and lovely Mercury-Venus whispering sweet nothings from mid-morning to mid-afternoon.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - One of your sweet, charming children offers to trade favors with you Sunday morning. Venus' entry Wednesday into your solar sixth house may bring good news on the health front, and possibly a dear friend among your coworkers. Angles to Neptune in your solar fourth house make for a chaotic home life Wednesday night. Mercury enters your solar eighth house; you compare different insurance or investments plans. Your significant other is just a bundle of energy Saturday morning.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Monday favors pipe dreams and laziness at the beach. Tuesday may force you to make a detour on the morning commute, but early arrival at the office is greeted with good fortune. Venus' entry Wednesday into your solar fifth house favors romance and children who are sweet to you. Mercury enters your solar seventh house, where your life partner wants to talk more about how you two feel about each other.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 -Sunday morning you may offer to do a favor for a dear relative or neighbor. Venus' entry Wednesday into your solar fourth house may bring a female house guest, or you may wish to beautify the home with fresh paint and d├ęcor. Mercury enters your solar sixth house, bringing more medical appointments for screenings or cleanings. 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!

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - Venus' entry Wednesday into your solar third house may bring love letters and charming neighbors. Also on Wednesday, try not to promise more than you can possibly deliver. Mercury enters your solar fifth house; possibly your kids invite their little friends over to the house for parties or sleepovers. The Moon in Cancer gets in on the Mercury-Venus act on Friday; you cannot help but feel something when your honey whispers the sweet nothings in your ear.

Your Milky Way Horoscope May 18-24, 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 17-18 degrees Aries squares Jupiter in Cancer at 11:31 am Sunday. Vesta at 16 degrees Libra, and Ceres at 19 Libra, pull opposite Venus, and Chiron at 17 Pisces trines Jupiter. Vesta in Libra martyrs themselves for others, while Ceres there is always concerned with fairness and honesty. I could see someone willingly stepping aside from a relationship or marriage just to make the other person happy. Chiron is often the bond between two life partners, but it can be the wound that causes them to separate for good, too. It all seems to add up to a divorce or legal separation for some of us. With the Venus-Jupiter square, a strong urge to socialize finds expression, although resistance to tempting buffets is low so take along someone who will help you maintain your willpower. 
 
Mars at 9 degrees 2' Libra is Stationary Direct (SD) at 9:31 pm Monday. (This is closely inconjunct Juno at 12 degrees Taurus which may produce some surprises for natives of these signs.) Matters that seemed to have the brakes on, will suddenly start to lurch forward, so hang on to the roof strap and hang on tight. You may have had to put some things to the side until a health problem was resolved – let me add that I have had to delay some health procedures until I finished a course of medication as a treatment resulting from an emergency several months ago. You may have had to face the fact that you cannot take your health for granted any more. You may finally be able to finish some projects that had been put on hold. Your frustrations over these delays may suddenly burst forth and not in a healthy way; count ten, count a hundred, punch a pillow or take a walk! Then go forth, wiser and healthier, probably with better habits diet-wise or exercise-wise. Your energy may return at long last, possibly with the adoption of yoga, breathing exercises, Tai Chi routines, and the like. One's energy tends to return when one has begun to focus on a Purpose or Intent behind one's actions; having a goal tends to help us find the energy to reach it! Good Luck!

The Sun enters Gemini at 10:59 pm Tuesday. (The Sun squares Pallas just entering Virgo. Pallas in Virgo may make a career out of service in a constructive way. Geminis have Pallas in their solar fourth house, so they might start a home business, possibly related to clothing, accessories, or other textile arts.) Gemini Sun-Sign people are not exactly shallow, but they do want to experience a lot of variety in life, so they skip from one activity to another, one idea to another, etc. hardly giving themselves time to delve deeply into any one thing. 

They charm others with sparkling conversation and wit, but because they often refuse to discuss personal feelings they keep others at arm's length. They do have a gift for setting others at ease at first meeting, and they give others the chance to express themselves verbally. Geminis enjoy sampling a wide range of ideas and experiences. Memory is good, but too often they just remember enough to recite by rote. Health can be iffy, as Gemini is often prone to lung ailments. Geminis often have two or more sources of income, sometimes from wildly different jobs. They may even have two love interests at the same time, as they dither over which one is the Real Thing. Geminis love to travel, and their jobs may require them to report to more than one office or meet clients face to face in other offices or the client's home. 
 
Famous people with the Sun in Gemini include: Judy Garland, composers Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss, John F Kennedy, actors James Arness and John Wayne, author William Styron, poet Walt Whitman, Thomas Mann, Robert McNamara, Bob Hope, Beatle Paul McCartney, David and Laurence Rockefeller, Jets quarterback Joe Namath, Bob Dylan, Howard Hawks, Andy Griffith, F Lee Bailey, Helen Hunt. 
 
Jupiter at 19 degrees Cancer trines Saturn in Scorpio at 1:48 pm Saturday. This can mark a good time to start/expand a business (or website) or work towards realizing an ambition. You may feel like reaching out to parent others, even parent the whole world (this might be the sign Cancer talking), but try not to step on other's need for independence. Cancer can be rather ambitious, and both signs can be quite practical as well as emotional – so this might be a good time to work out practical ways to satisfy your emotional needs.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - Mars goes direct in your solar fifth house Monday night; you get revved up over a sports event, or may meet an exciting, athletic new beau. The Sun enters your sign on Tuesday night; you may be put in the spotlight, with opportunities to verbally express yourself and possibly draw out others in a public venue, such as in a talk show or interview situation.

Your Milky Way Horoscope May 11-17, 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 9 degrees Aries opposes Mars in Libra at 5:27 am Sunday. Some of us may be attracted to a new love interest but it will be based primarily on a physical attraction, which may or may not have anything more substantial to maintain it. Those who are already in a relationship may find this transit magnifies whatever is already in the situation, for good or ill. You may feel like the Other person is to blame for anything wrong in the relationship. You might sublimate frustrations into creative work, rather than take things out on your partner. Creative energy is stimulated by conflict, sometimes working things out in painting or pottery or any other craft. 
 
Mercury at 7 degrees Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces at 8:35 am Sunday. This is just about the definition of confusion. Verbal or written instructions can be garbled, you can easily get lost while driving or miss your connection if flying. You might feel a little spacey, a little out of touch with the here-and-now. The transit can favor studying unusual subjects like metaphysics, the mystical, things like reincarnation, numerology, astrology, tarot, etc. It is not a day for signing contracts of any kind, especially if looking for a car, computer, horse, etc. 
 
Venus at 13 degrees Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn at 1:47 pm Wednesday. Venus square Pluto is said to signify romantic obsession, sometimes to the degree of someone like Glenn Close in “Fatal Attraction.” You could meet someone that you feel is a soul mate, but there are obstacles, or one party rejects the other. 
 
Venus at 14 degrees Aries is conjunct Uranus at 7:54 pm Thursday. Leading up to that conjunction, Mercury makes sextiles to Venus and then Uranus starting at 5:54 pm. Venus conjunct Uranus often brings a sudden romance (or at least an introduction to) a new love interest, with the new person having something unusual about them such as an accent or a strange way of dressing-thinking-supporting themselves. Uranus is sometimes the foreigner, so you may meet someone from a different country (hence the accent). Usually these alliances are not durable, but they are sure interesting while they last! Very rarely this transit may bring sudden windfalls (or sudden expenses) if they contact a natal planet, the second house cusp, or the ruler of your second house.

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 – Sunday's Venus-Mars opposition can be pretty good for spending time with your life partner, as long as you can let the other person pick what to do next sometimes. On Monday you may have an urge to take a day trip with your mate, or at least start planning a weekend getaway. You may feel pessimistic about health issues Wednesday, but that will pass. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your sign Thursday night could make you irresistible due to your independent spirit, which is just one of your charms.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – Spending may be on the agenda for Monday, just make sure you have checked out the market values so you don't overpay for a car, for example. Wednesday's Full Moon in Scorpio will probably accent partnership issues; beware tendencies toward obsession or domination. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your twelfth house Thursday night could usher in a secret love, someone who is very different from you but totally irresistible.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Sunday morning's Venus-Mars opposition can spur creative juices, so pull out your paints, clay or camera to express yourself with. On Monday try to do a bit of brainstorming to come up with creative solutions to personal or romantic problems. Wednesday's Full Moon accents workplace issues, where you might get drawn into a drama that really does you no good. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your eleventh house Thursday night could bring a new and fascinating addition to your circle of friends.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Sunday's Venus-Mars opposition could mean stress from trying to balance home and career demands. Wednesday's Full Moon in compatible Scorpio accents children or romantic prospects, where you may obsess about one or the other when you really need to step back a moment. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your tenth house Thursday night could bring unexpected perks or even a raise from your employer. Stick to routines on Friday. The internet is confusing Saturday afternoon, make sure you read those movie listings correctly.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – It is useless to argue with a professor or lawyer Sunday (or Monday). You may enjoy a day trip with some friends Monday; you ought to at least jump at an offer of such a trip in the near future. Wednesday's Full Moon puts the accent on home and family, with work-related travel putting some stress on family ties. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your ninth house Thursday night could bring an unexpected decision in a legal matter, with a payment or windfall as the result.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Venus-Mars opposition puts stresses on finances (your vs ours) so you may be working out a division of responsibilities for assorted bills. Wednesday's Full Moon affects transit, education, or communications; I suspect that financing of college tuition for the kids is the major issue here. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your eighth house Thursday night could affect finances one way or another in an unexpected way. Stick to routine stuff Friday. On Saturday you enjoy visiting a local attraction or restaurant with your mate.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from Sunday (Mother's Day) till Monday night. Early risers Sunday have plenty of energy to tackle a beautification project such as painting, weeding out clothes from the closet, etc. The afternoon may frustrating if you were counting on someone to come and lend a hand, who does not show up. Sunday's Venus-Mars opposition can be pretty good for spending time with your life partner, as long as you can let the other person pick what to do next sometimes. The Moon is void from almost 9 pm Sunday night till it enters Scorpio about 9 pm Monday, so stick to routine matters during that time. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your seventh house Thursday night could usher in a fascinating and unusual love interest or partner, at least for the short term.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from 9:07 pm Monday till early Thursday. Mid-morning on Tuesday is probably going to be either chaotic or idealistic, but either way your work may suffer. You may benefit from a chat with a mentor-type Tuesday night. Wednesday morning favors knuckling down to getting lots of work done, so have your to-do list ready to tackle. Let a partner shine in the spotlight Wednesday afternoon. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your sixth house Thursday night could bring an unusual coworker to the workplace.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from 1:44 am Thursday till Saturday morning. Thursday afternoon is probably going to be confusing and your brain will just not get into gear, so it is best to either hand the reins to someone else or stick to routine. Romantic matters could take a surprising turn Thursday night, or you could meet a fascinating new love interest who has an accent. The Moon is void all day Friday so stick to routine matters.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Sunday's Venus-Mars opposition could mean stress from trying to balance home and career demands. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your fourth house Thursday night could signal hosting an unusual visitor, perhaps a foreign exchange student. The Moon is in Capricorn from 4:12 am Saturday thru the weekend. The afternoon favors enjoying a matinee at the cinema, or possibly swimming in a nice heated pool. You hurry too much Saturday night and may wind up having to redo your work.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Sunday's Venus-Mars opposition may trigger debates over beliefs, theories, or practical application of abstract values. Midday Monday favors holding a brainstorming session, possibly with other air signs; write down every loony idea for evaluation later. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your third house Thursday night could bring a “phone call from a stranger” or probably just an email from someone you have not heard from in quite a while. Stick to routines Friday.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – Creative energies may be stimulated by the Venus-Mars opposition Sunday, so pull out your paints or clay or yarn to express yourself with. Wednesday's Full Moon in compatible Scorpio could reactivate a legal matter. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your second house Thursday night could mean unexpected bills or if you are very lucky, a bit of a financial windfall. Impulsive spending Friday can easily blow the budget. Saturday favors spending time with friends.
