Mr. Saturn’s Stars #67 Weekly Horoscopes for 1/7-1/13, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 1/7-1/13, 2019

 

 Hi kids!!! Welcome back to another year of Mr. Saturn’s Stars.

We’re starting this year with a government shutdown ordered by everyone’s favorite rump. I wonder, should the 800,000 government workers not getting paid eat cake? Inquiring Americans would like to know.

 

Aries- Mars is the planet of action, courage, energy, and ambition, and it has come home to your sign to start the year, meaning you’re probably chomping at the bit to move forward in just about every area of your life. Venus and Jupiter in your House of Philosophy will give you high hopes, while Uranus going station/direct in your sign could bring a little luck or, at the very least, a surprise or two. The Sun and Mercury together in your House of Career aligning with Neptune behind the scenes could bring that Zen moment that sometimes occurs when you stop thinking about things and instead just let your intuition guide you into a groove where everything seems to work in harmony. Make sure you keep your cool so you can enjoy it while it lasts.

 

Taurus- With Mars rattling around behind the scenes in your chart and Uranus just about to cross your Ascendent, try and be aware of how energy is building up within you in the form of impatience and anxiety about where you are as opposed to where you want to be. Neptune in your House of Dreams could potentially add to your emotional instability, however, with Saturn and Mercury moving into a conjunction in your House of Philosophy you should be okay if you can focus on what’s in front of you. In other words, keep your attention on what needs to be done to get from point A to point B. Meanwhile, Venus and Jupiter in your House of Transformation should provide all the luck you’ll need so that everything ends up okay. Just remember to breathe and take it one step at a time.

 

Gemini- Probably more now than anytime in a while it is important for you cross your t’s and dot your i’s and not be cavalier about anything that you’re expected to be responsible for. With Jupiter and Venus in your House of Relationships squaring Neptune in your House of Public Image, it would be very easy at this time to be perceived by others as an arrogant flake that thinks the rules apply to everyone but you. Instead, take your lead from the Sun and Mercury in your House of Transformation and make sure to do your homework so that you are prepared for anything that involves having to work with others to get something done. In other words, this is a time when it is very important to walk the walk and not just talk the talk. A word to the wise.

 

Cancer- Make sure at this time that you aren’t allowing your current circumstances to convince you of something that just isn’t true. With Jupiter in your House of Work squaring Neptune in your House of Philosophy it may seem like no matter what you do you can’t get ahead, although with the Sun and Mercury in your House of Relationships having a much better relationship with Neptune, my advice would to be keep your nose to the grindstone and play the role you’ve been given, at least for the time being. The Lunar Arc will be moving from your House of Transformation through your House of Philosophy and into your House of Career, meaning that as it aspects Venus, Jupiter, Neptune, and Mars in succession you may just end up discovering that you’re a lot luckier than you gave yourself credit for. Don’t be surprised if an unexpected payback on a favor you did someone in the past transforms the winter of your discontent into some early Spring crocuses.

 

Leo-As Venus enters your House of Creativity and aligns with Mars in your House of Philosophy, take the time to play and follow your inspirations, whatever they may be. Neptune in your House of Transformation squaring Jupiter (also in your House of Creativity) could represent a tendency you’ve had in the past to repress such visions and activities out of either guilt or fear, however, with the Sun and Mercury conjunct in your House of Routines this could be the time when you’ll finally find the courage to confront that pesky little demon who keeps whispering in your ear that you don’t have the time for fun.  In the meantime, as Uranus gets closer to your House of Public Image, get ready to be exposed to a whole new group of free and intelligent people as you little by little start to let your freak flag unfurl.

 

Virgo- A wise man once said that it is better to ask for forgiveness than permission and I would concur. At the very least it’s a sure way to find out who really cares for you. With that in mind, don’t be afraid at this time to do what’s in your heart if that’s what you truly feel. Have faith that you won’t be abandoned by someone close whose control issues are really just a camouflage for what a big chicken they are. With the Sun and Mercury in your House of Fun and Creativity, your willingness to step out of the small world a partner is trying to confine you in could very well be as much of a liberation for them as it is for you, especially if they decide to try and bring you back; after all, an adventure for two may just be exactly what your relationship needed.

 

Libra- The Sun, Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto are all in your House of Foundations and Home, which probably means that for the last little while you’ve been laboring away at something that isn’t glamorous but no doubt necessary. If possible, try and be patient for now. As Venus gains steam in your House of Communications she will eventually enter into a conjunction with Jupiter in mid-month, at which time you will undoubtedly see some fruits from your past labors start to arrive. Maybe you will even get to see some of that fruit sprouting as early as this week when Venus catches up with Mars in your House of Partnerships and you start to receive some initial indications that the world may be interested in you again. During this week the Lunar Arc will pass from your House of Creativity to your House of Partnership (reiterating the theme of new associations) so keep up the good work simply because it’s the best way for right now to be going with the flow.

 

Scorpio- As Venus enters your House of Self Worth and aligns with Mars in your House of Work this would be a good time to either ask for a raise or else start looking for something new that would pay you what you’re really worth; which, by the way, is the $64,000 dollar question, namely, what you’re worth. The Sun and Mercury in your House of Communication aligning with Neptune in your House of Creativity will give the negotiating skills to convince anyone of anything, so if someone isn’t impressed by your pitch assume they’re challenged in some way and move on; you don’t have time for anyone who can’t keep up (or worse, doesn’t want to).  Jupiter is also in your House of Self Worth and as he squares Neptune in your House of Fun don’t let yourself get lazy and simply waste all this week’s good energy in frivolous activities. Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can conquer today.

 

Sagittarius- Venus in your sign aligning with Mars in your House of Creativity and Romance could cause you to feel both inspired and antsy at the same time. It’s a potent energy, but if you’re not careful and/or lack direction, it could all just devolve into pointless escapism. Let the Sun and Mercury in your House of Self Worth show you how to be careful and not get distracted, especially with Neptune in your House of Foundations squaring Jupiter in your sign. This is an aspect that could easily be either a cloud looking for a parade to rain on or an expectation ready to over inflate, neither one being true. The worst part of Sag is that they can easily fall into believing whatever they want to believe, ergo, try not make this week about believing anything but rather about trying something new. Listen to what your heart is saying, you know, that small voice inside that requires you to listen carefully instead of the big one that just makes you feel guilty and gives you a headache.

 

Capricorn- As the old saying goes, life is one part inspiration and three parts perspiration and getting that cocktail right may be your biggest challenge this week. Venus behind the scenes aligning with Mars at the foundation of your chart would qualify as the inspiration, while The Sun, Mercury, and Saturn in your sign would be the responsibility to chaperone that inspiration to a respectable place, kind of like the Sicilian family watching Al Pacino with their daughter in The Godfather. The ultimate arbiter in the film was that the couple loved one another and the family could see that, in your case Neptune in your House of Thinking would correlate to the idea of that kind of love, but the question is are you willing to see it through like Pacino did by putting up with having to go on dates with 20 other people? We’re back to where we started so be willing to break a sweat this week, you’ll be glad you did.

 

Aquarius- With the Sun, Saturn, Mercury, and Pluto behind the scenes you are a quivering heap of worries and nerves as you courageously try to figure out how to take care of everything for everybody. Neptune in your house of Self Worth squaring Jupiter in your House of Groups and Friends is adding to this anxiety by making you too nice at this time for your own good. Let Mars in your Hose of Communications help you to draw some boundaries with anyone who is out to either con or strong arm you; don’t be afraid to call people on their bullshit and do it in no uncertain terms.  Uranus is currently at the lowest point in your chart so make sure you also aren’t overlooking anything in regards to making sure that you and yours are prepared for the unexpected; double check things like your home security system and make sure all your insurance policies are clear and updated. As the photographer Ansel Adams used to say, “Chance favors the prepared mind.”

 

Pisces- As Mars transits your House of Self Worth and aligns with Venus entering your House of Career, you are definitely feeling a need to branch out to greener pastures where your talents will be more amply rewarded. Jupiter is also in your House of Career, and while this will further boost your confidence, just make sure you don’t get cocky. Saturn, Mercury, and Pluto are all in your House of Groups and Dreams to help you remember no one does anything alone, therefore be willing to compromise and try not to burn any bridges now if someone isn’t seeing yet how fabulous you are. They will if you’re willing to acknowledge (and get down to) the work that needs to be done now.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #62 Weekly Horoscopes for 11/26-12/2, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 11/26-12/2, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. Thanksgiving is now in the books, which means Christmas is rapidly approaching. To quote our faithful Shih Tzu , Tinkerbell, “Fa-la-la-la-la……la-la….la…..la…….

 

 Aries- With the Sun, Jupiter, and Mercury retrograde all traveling through your House of Philosophy and squaring Mars in Pisces behind the scenes, you may find yourself feeling a lot more introspective than usual. As the Lunar Arc progresses through your Houses of Family, Creativity, Work, and Relationships you may also find yourself inordinately concerned with bigger issues than you might usually consider, such as, “why am I here,” or “what is the ultimate meaning of my life?” With Uranus retrograde in your sign moving into an inconjunct with Mercury retrograde later in the week, you could be feeling alienated by the frivolousness you perceive in those around you. If that’s the case, then consider going on a retreat or taking a meditation class; heed that inner call.

 

Taurus- Mercury retrograde in your House of Relationships is in an esoteric alignment with Uranus retrograde in your House of Confinement, which could mean that you’re suddenly and unexplainably starting to feel trapped in a situation that, up until now, you’ve always thought was okay. The Sun and Jupiter in your House of Transformation could in turn have you feeling a need to escape whatever this scenario may be, especially as they both square Mars in your House of Dreams. Of course this is all probably an illusion and quite likely you’re exactly where you belong, although on the other hand there might also be a grain of truth in what you’re feeling. With that in mind, if you have an unexpected itch this week, allow yourself to scratch it so you’ll know for sure what the truth is.

 

Gemini- How much do you care what others think of you? As the Sun and Jupiter pass through your House of Relationships and square Mars in your House of Public Image, you could find yourself worrying a bit more than usual about how you measure up in the judgment game out there in the arena of life.  With that in mind, be careful that you don’t end up getting ju-jitsued by your own guilt, as Saturn and Pluto in dutiful Capricorn oppose the Moon passing through your House of Self Worth, making you more susceptible than usual to criticism. A word to the wise, don’t let a boss or competitor get into your head or you could end up losing sight of who you really are in the fun house of mirrors they’re projecting on you.

 

Cancer- This could be a week where challenges arise on the job that will seem to test your patience, although perhaps what’s really being tested is your philosophy of life. For whatever reason, you’re the one who’s been chosen to battle the dragon or soothe the resident crazy person at work and how you go about it will determine not only how the situation gets rectified, but also how you will finally end up turning a corner and leaving guilt, frustration, and a lack of confidence behind. How is all that possible, you ask? These s.o.b’s are out to get me, for sure! It is certainly true that your adversaries may not like you, but if you let Venus at your Foundation kill ‘em with kindness and Uranus in your House of Career show them what crazy like a fox is all about, then it won’t matter if they like you or not, they will respect you and that will have it’s own rewards.

 

Leo- When the Moon passes through your sign this week it will align beautifully with both the Sun and Jupiter in your House of Creativity, likely giving you the necessary inspiration to deal with a particularly recalcitrant person who would seem to have you where the hairs are short. Things could be tense, but Saturn aligning with Mars in your House of Transformation should give you the chutzpah and the moxie to be able to skin a skunk and still walk away smelling like a rose. The element of surprise (as well as intelligence) will also be on your side, as Uranus retrograde opposes Venus in charming Libra and you demonstrate a complete and total mastery of Zen and the Art of getting what you need. Be prepared for the future to look so bright you may need shades.

 

Virgo- As Mars passes through your House of Relationships to square both the Sun and Jupiter in your Home Area, things could get a little heated with a partner and/or a family member. Because all of the above planets will be in mutable signs (Pisces and Sag) any conflicts that arise will most likely blow over as quickly as they appeared. The trick of it all will be not to buy into the agenda of someone you know is a con artist (even if you love them) and with Saturn in your House of Creativity aligning nicely with Mars, you should be able to speak softly and manage this situation quite well as long as you’re carrying the big stick of reality where everyone can see it.

 

Libra- Charming Venus transiting through your sign is the perfect cover for you right now, but only as long as the snarky rebelliousness you’re really feeling gets directed into the proper channels. I say this because with Jupiter and the Sun in your House of Communication squaring Mars in the mutable sign of Pisces, you are no doubt feeling your oats. A bad place to direct the sort of verbal harangue these placements might indicate would be toward a fool (or God forbid, a boss) you just can’t suffer any longer, a better place would be into a creative project where righteous indignation and vitriol can pass as humor. Pick your poison correctly and you may just live to kvetch another day.

 

Scorpio- The Sun and Jupiter in your House of Self Worth squaring Mars in your House of Creativity may make you seem possessed this week as you try to figure out a solution for an unexpected problem at work. You’re the perfect person to work on this because you’re the only one who gives a shit, which doesn’t bother you as long as it gets you away from all the dorks you work with. Just be careful not to get lost in this as a life and death challenge; after all you could call a repairman, this isn’t “Heart of Darkness.” With that said, Saturn in your House of Ideas will be aligning nicely with Mars so you very well could carry the day and get some good brownie points with the boss as well. Go ahead, flaunt that “Yankee Ingenuity.”

 

Sagittarius- This week could mark a turning point for you if you can manage not to let a long time nemesis rain on your parade yet again. The Sun and Jupiter in your sign is putting more than a little pep in your step, although with Mars transiting through your House of Family such enthusiasm is exactly the kind of motivation a stick in the mud would need to mess with you by spreading their prophecies of gloom and doom. The good news is that with Saturn in your House of Self Worth managing Mars like a cowboy herding mustangs, for once you may not be de-railed by this person but will instead either laugh at them or (more likely) feel sorry for the miserable, pathetic s.o.b. they are. After all, what kind of person can only feel joy if they make someone else feel bad? Really.

 

Capricorn- Saturn and Pluto in your sign are likely making you feel responsible, duty bound, guilty, and probably even trapped right now, however, don’t fret, the Sun and Jupiter are rallying the crowd behind the scenes, although with Mars in your House of Local Routines squaring that crowd, you’ll probably have to settle for a quiet glass of wine after work rather than a real vacation or anything special. Venus in your House of Public Image will help you to keep up appearances despite your bad mood, while Uranus at the bottom of your chart will inspire you to turn that quiet glass of wine into a bottle (or two) behind closed doors. Just make sure you dump the empties after dark so the neighbors don’t catch on.

 

Aquarius- Even with the Sun and Jupiter transiting your House of Dreams and causing you to pretend you’re unstoppable, the reality is that Mars in your House of Self Worth is literally frightening you to death, which is not necessarily a bad thing if the motivation of fight or flight turns into you getting what you want. Venus in your House of Philosophy opposing Uranus retrograde in your House of Thinking is causing a confrontation between the optimist and pessimist within you, while Mercury retrograde backing up into your House of Career is helping you to realize that the light you’re hoping for at the end of the tunnel will only be arrived at by passing through the darkness first.  As a poet once wrote, “Do not go gentle into that good night…Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

 

Pisces- The Sun and Jupiter in your House of Career has you looking toward the mountaintop, while Mars in your sign is presenting you with the immediate challenge of how to begin the journey. Saturn in your House of Groups would suggest you reach out for some help from someone with more experience, perhaps an individual who has already climbed their own Matterhorn. Venus passing through your House of Transformation and Shared Resources would clearly re-iterate this partnership theme, while Uranus retrograde in your House of Self Worth would suggest not having too many expectations of what you need to learn until you actually learn it.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #48 Weekly Horoscopes for 8/13-8/19, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 8/13-8/19, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Here we are in the Dog Days of August (woof! woof!) with 6 retrograde planets (soon to be 5) making it look like we still have a long, hot “Summer in the City” in front of us.

“All around, people looking half dead

Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head”

 

Aries- With Mars retrograde backing up from your House of Dreams into your House of Career, it looks like there’ll be no rest for the weary this week when it comes to turning your dreams into reality. Saturn retrograde is also in your House of Career, and as it aligns with Uranus retrograde in your House of Self Worth and squares Venus in your House of Relationships, try not to complain too much about having to go over everything yet again before you can move forward toward whatever your goal is. Jupiter in your House of Transformation aligning with Neptune behind the scenes is all about compassion, so try not to be too hard on anyone if you’re not getting what you want because, if truth be told, with 6 retrograde planets to start the week we’re all in the same rut at this point and complaining about it won’t make anything better.

 

Taurus- Expect Uranus retrograde in your sign to shake things up, especially as it aligns with Saturn retrograde in your House of Philosophy to let all sorts of sacred cows out of the pen in your “everything’s got to be just right world.” Venus in your House of Routines will further contribute to this anarchy as it also aspects Saturn, so try your best to see the silver lining if your comfort zone ends up getting dragged through the mud of inconvenience so that it ends up becoming soiled beyond recognition. If it seems like nothing is going to be easy this week then the surprise will certainly be on you, as Jupiter in your House of Relationships aligns with Neptune in your House of Friends to bring either a Florence Nightingale or a Mr. Clean into your life for some relatively delightful damage control. If you have any sort of romantic maid or workman fantasy be prepared for some serious role playing…….Oooh la la !!!

 

Gemini- Uranus retrograde in your House of Confinement is probably making you feel like a tiger in a cage, and as it aligns with Saturn retrograde in your House of Transformation you’re also probably feeling like feeding time will never come, hence you are likely going to be one angry cat this week. Nevertheless, try to be cool and not to scratch anyone or else your impetuousness might end up getting your head on the wall of some wannabe big game hunter who ordinarily wouldn’t be able to hit the broad side of a barn. Mars backing up into your House of Shared Resources would suggest you try to play nice no matter how bad things seem: in other words, do the tricks they want you to and act like a pussycat. As noble Jupiter aligns with compassionate Neptune maybe one of those people going “Awwwwh” in the audience over how hard you’re trying to be nice will help you get out of that cage you’re stuck in and offer a chance at a new life as a “Fat Cat.” Purrrrrrrr!

 

Cancer- Mars backing up into your House of Relationships and Open Enemies could serve to reopen an old wound that you had hoped was healed. With Saturn and Pluto retrograde in that House as well, maybe your having to revisit this is about finally letting go of the past rather than going for revenge and another round of combat with a particular individual. Jupiter in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune in your House of Philosophy would speak to your enlightenment in this situation, but only if you can find the courage to believe in your finer qualities and not react to what an adversary is accusing you of, mostly because it makes their sorry ass look a whole lot better than it is. Uranus retrograde in your House of Groups and Dreams is all about breaking free from the past, “so put all those troubles in your old kit bag and smile, smile, smile!!!”

 

Leo- If you have been feeling withdrawn over the last few weeks, Mercury going station/direct in your sign and aligning with Venus in your House of Communication will likely make you want to get back out there and throw that charm around once again, especially if it can help you out in regards to a dispute with an older individual at work. This person represents the past and you are the future, so let Uranus in your House of Career inspire you to let your freak flag fly in the face of their curmudgeonly whining. No body likes them, people just feel guilty about telling an old fart they need “Beano.” Jupiter in your House of Home and Family aligning with Neptune in your House of Transformation may require you to grow with a family situation rather than abandoning it as you had planned. Sorry, but you’re the natural leader here, so get to work and wrangle those spoiled brats!

 

Virgo- Mercury going station/direct in your House of the Secret Self and Mars backing into your House of Creativity will likely have you rethinking something you had thought was a good idea but is really no longer materially feasible. Neptune in your House of Relationships aligning with Jupiter in your House of Communication could make expressing this to the involved parties a bit difficult, mostly because of an unwillingness on your part to tell it like it is. With Uranus retrograde in your House of Transformation aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity, don’t confuse being true to yourself in circumstances which have changed for the worse with feeling guilty about disappointing someone who has never really had anyone’s interests in mind but their own. Don’t be afraid to do you and let the chips fall where they may, after all, they’re mostly your chips.

 

Libra- Mars has backed up from your House of Creativity into your House of Foundations, meaning the time has probably come for you to ask for some feedback on something you’ve been working on that could benefit from a fresh perspective. Mercury going station/direct in your House of Dreams and aligning with Venus in your sign would further indicate that any editorial help you need is there for the asking, the question is, why won’t you ask for it? Jupiter in your House of Self Worth aligning with Neptune can help address any problems you might have about your deservedness, which is the far more important issue here and ultimately something you can only answer for yourself. At this point enter Uranus retrograde in your House of Transformation asking you bluntly what the hell the problem is about you feeling worthy, while at the same time Saturn retrograde is saying, “You heard the man, answer the question!” Well, answer the damn question!

 

Scorpio- Uranus retrograde in your House of Relationships aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Communication could make you the unexpected object of desire for a person either much older or younger than yourself. This doesn’t have to be awkward or any sort of big deal if you can just keep in mind that Saturn is also squaring Venus in your House of Secrets, meaning the attraction may be more about lust than love on your part. Mercury going station/direct in your House of Public Image would warn you to be careful here and try not to be too cavalier in private with someone you don’t really want to be seen with in public. Jupiter in your sign aligning with Neptune in your House of Romance may make you think this situation is harmless, but you really don’t know what this individual’s agenda might be, so try to have some foresight here and remember the Dylan song, “Go ‘way from my window/ Leave at your own chosen speed/ I’m not the one you want, babe/ I’m not the one you need.”

 

Sagittarius- Mercury going station/direct this week in your House of Philosophy and Jupiter in your House of the Inner Self could end up having a very revelatory influence now, as it slowly begins to dawn on you that no matter what the circumstances of your life are, it does matter deep down what you believe. Things are not hopeless. You can make a difference. Mars moving backward into your House of Self Worth should help you to understand that the cynic you have pretended to be for all this time was only a mask, a defense mechanism covering a very deep sadness at the corruption of the world. You’re actually a sensitive soul; do you realize that makes you strong and not weak? You might be speechless at this point, but all I have to say is “whoa!” You know what this means? YOU CAN BE HAPPY! Right now! Go ahead, laugh right in the face of the nearest asshole and enjoy yourself. It’s their problem, not yours.

 

Capricorn- Don’t turn the other cheek to a critic, counterpunch with another idea. Mercury going station/direct in your House of Transformation along with Jupiter in your House of Dreams are working together so that you will have the confidence to let the inspiration of Neptune in your House of Communication express itself; like Picasso releasing his one-eyed women on the world.  With this in mind, Mars backing up into your sign should provide the necessary fuel now for the slow, steady upward climb from the depths of a creative idea’s inception to the apex of its expression. In turn, Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity aligning with Saturn in your sign should serve to impose order upon the chaos and set the stage for the clear intuitive voice in the back of your head to announce defiantly into the deafening silence, “Let there be light.”

 

Aquarius- With Mars moving back into your House of Confinement, you will now have a total of 3 retrograde planets working behind the scenes to turn something you cannot outdistance from the past into your most immediate challenge. Who were you then, and how has what you’ve done since influenced who you are now? Uranus retrograde in your House of Foundations could furnish some surprises as you try and work this out, especially if whatever you did in the past doesn’t seem to reflect well on the person you’re pretending to be now. Jupiter in your House of Public Image aligning with Neptune in your House of Self Worth will try to conceal this contradiction, although as Jupiter also squares this weeks Mercury station/direct in your House of Relationships, someone close to you may inadvertently discover something you’d prefer to remain a secret and it could change the whole landscape of your association. Venus in Libra will make you want to continue the subterfuge if you can, but then who would you be; do you even know?

 

Pisces- Neptune in your sign for the past few years has probably been making your life seem like a cross between a funhouse hall of mirrors and a London Fog, although on the bright side you’ve probably also managed to stumble over a few important lessons during this time as well. With 6 retrograde planets now, including Uranus in your House of Communications and Saturn in your House of Career, you’re certainly not out of the woods yet, although with Mercury going station/direct in your House of Daily Routines you should be able to finally get some traction in terms of any immediate problems either at home or on the job, and with Venus in your House of Shared Resources you might even discover some valuable new friends along the way. “Follow the Yellow Brick Road.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #40 Weekly Horoscopes for 6/18-6/24, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 6/18-6/24, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Glad to have you back here at Mr. Saturn’s Stars. I hope you enjoyed last weeks Tarot/Haiku Interlude as much as Mrs. Saturn and I enjoyed our vacation.

Now, are you ready to get back to some hardcore horoscopes!!! Yeah? Well then let’s go!!!

 

 Aries- Pride and appreciation could both be big themes for you this week, which could lead to some tense moments and even some disappointments. Nevertheless, try to understand that the overall lesson here should not revolve around anyone’s ego, but respect. The Sun entering Cancer should make you a little more sensitive than usual and its sextile to Uranus in your House of Self Worth should make you a little more reactionary, and if that weren’t enough, Venus will be opposing Mars with both of them being squared by a Scorpio Moon later in the week, all of which could be a recipe for either big passion or big frustration. By the weekend Mercury at the bottom of your chart will be opposing Pluto at the top, helping you to see the truth and let go of any feelings of anger, resentment, or even jealousy, in favor of healing and forgiveness spurred on by Jupiter retrograde in your House of Transformation working with kind and compassionate Neptune retrograde behind the scenes.

 

Taurus- Taurus is a fixed Earth Sign, grounded and stable, like an old, tall tree in the forest, but hopefully not like a stick in the mud when the rains of change start pouring down. There will be a fixed Grand Cross for you this week, beginning with rebellious Uranus in your sign opposing a Scorpio Moon in your House of Relationships, which will likely be all about getting your way in a situation no matter what. The second opposition that will complete the cross will be Venus in your House of Foundations and Mars in your House of Public Image, meaning pride won’t be just one of the seven deadly sins for you this week, but possibly all of them (perhaps with a little wrath mixed in). The light at the end of this tunnel vision will likely come over the weekend, when noble Jupiter retrograde trines compassionate Neptune retrograde and the investigative team of both Mercury and Pluto oppose each other to reveal this recent stubbornness on your part not to be the selfishness and ego you’ve been hiding behind, but rather a little bit of fear mixed with a lot of insecurity because, after all, change makes you very uncomfortable.

 

Gemini- This could be your Wizard of Oz week as a Fixed Grand Cross of Uranus, Mars, Venus, and the Moon combine with a new Cancer Sun in your House of Self Worth to re-enact the famous scene in the movie in which the curtain showing the massive, shouting face of the Wizard is pulled back by Toto to reveal a feeble old man hoping to fool the world into believing he’s something more than he is. What may turn out to be a surprise about all this (just as it was in the film) is that your true identity (just like that of the Wizard) with its modesty and insecurity is actually far more attractive (and inspiring) to those around you than the tougher image you feel a need to project. With Neptune transiting now through your House of Public Image it will be important for you to battle this tendency to hide your vulnerability behind a tough facade, for in actuality it is your natural sensitivity that is probably the most powerful tool you have in the face of your current circumstances.

 

Cancer- With the Sun entering your sign this week and aligning with Uranus in your House of Dreams and Saturn in your House of Relationships, this is a time when you will need to be appreciated and that must necessarily begin with you. Keeping that in mind, Venus in your house of Self Worth opposing Mars in your House of Transformation would speak to keeping your needs in perspective when others start making excessive demands on both your time and sanity. You pride yourself on being a caretaker so begin by taking care of yourself. Mercury in your sign opposing Pluto in your House of Relationships will add to your natural intuition as it offers insights into the motivations of both those who love you and those who oppose you. In the meantime, Jupiter in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune in your House of Philosophy will provide a decidedly Magickal aspect to your personality now, which may assist you in finding an esoteric solution to an obstacle that had previously seemed insurmountable. Believe in yourself and tap the heels of those magick slippers together, you didn’t end up with them by accident.

 

Leo- The activist and/or protector in you could be activated this week, as Mars in your House of Relationships opposes Venus in your sign and Uranus at the top of your chart opposes a Scorpio Moon at the bottom. Both injustice and bullies offend you and with the Sun moving behind the scenes into the super sensitive sign of Cancer, your heartstrings could be seriously tugged at now by either an individual or a group of people who are being victimized by unfortunate circumstances or unscrupulous individuals. Pluto in your House of Work opposing Mercury behind the scenes, along with Jupiter in your Home area aligning with Neptune in your House of Transformation, could contribute to you making discoveries either on the job or involving your family that will put a new spin on the actions of certain people whom you thought you knew, but it turns out you really didn’t. Once you know the facts, make sure to trust your own sense of truth to determine the right way to react.

 

Virgo- An unexpected problem this week could wind up being an unexpected blessing, it will all depend on your perspective as well as a sense of irony. Mars in your House of Work opposing Venus behind the scenes could find you thrust into a position of leadership on the job, an irony that will not be lost on you considering how much you have avoided playing the politics game at work because you think it’s a bunch of bullshit. The simple fact though is that you are the most qualified person to step in if the shit has hit the fan. Kind of like Burt Lancaster in From Here to Eternity; he’s the Sargent who really runs the base but when his girl suggests he take the officer’s exam he replies, “But I hate Officers!” All Mr. Saturn has to say is, “get over yourself, be a success!” Mercury in your House of Groups opposing Pluto in your House of Creativity could be of  assistance in your position of newfound responsibility in the form of you coming up with a better way to do whatever it is you’re now in charge of. Top it off with Jupiter and Neptune making everyone love you for it and you’ll see why it was suggested that a sense of irony would be important at this time.

 

Libra- As the Sun enters your House of Career and aligns with Uranus in your House of Transformation, the time may have finally come for you to get out there and make some noise. This ambitious theme will be reiterated as Mars in your House of Creativity opposes Venus in your House of Groups and Dreams. What you had thought was too personal and of little interest to most people might actually be quite universal. Mercury is also in your House of Career and it is opposing Pluto at the Foundation of your chart, meaning when we are honest with ourselves and what we feel, it will resonate with those of like mind and maybe there are more of them out there than you figured. Meanwhile, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Earnings aligning with Neptune Retrograde in your House of Work could bring back someone from the past that wants to return a favor for something you did but have forgotten about. The tumblers in the universal lock could very well be falling into alignment, so don’t be surprised if some doors start to open.

 

Scorpio- The story of Oedipus is famous for a reason; it is an archetypal theme of competition and incest that resonates deeply. With Uranus now in your House of Relationships and the Sun entering the sign of Cancer and your House of Philosophy, expect the deeper connections between your parents and you to start to emerge; not as dramatically as the Doors performing “The End,” but intense enough for sure. Mercury is also transiting through your House of Philosophy and as it opposes Pluto in your House of Communication, this could be a good time to start to explore some form of therapy to help you engage with the deeper parts of your nature, so consider perhaps going to a see a conventional therapist or even a legitimate Psychic, Tarot Reader, or Astrologer. Scorpio is the deepest and darkest of the signs, but within those depths are the secrets and realizations that can set you free. With Neptune now retrograde in your House of Creativity aligning with Jupiter retrograde in your sign, this could be the time to let your subconscious out to play; experiment with some automatic writing, meditation, or formal ritual practice, you may be glad you did.

 

Sagittarius- As the Sun enters into your House of Transformation and aligns with Uranus, you may finally be willing to push back at a person or situation that’s been bothering you. Venus in your House of Philosophy and Mars in your House of Communication will likely motivate you to speak up for yourself, so first make sure you take the time to examine how you really feel about the way you’re being treated, especially over the coming weekend as a Scorpio Moon behind the scenes may have you feeling some resentment toward either a relative or a co-worker who really has no respect for you. Mercury in your House of Transformation opposing Pluto in your House of Self Worth could very well act as a liberating force right now to help you see more clearly the connection between how you feel about yourself and how much you earn. It’s important to remember that the art of negotiation is about asking for more than you want in order to make the other person feel good about talking you down to what you really wanted.

 

Capricorn- As the Sun enters your House of Relationships and Uranus enters your House of both Creativity and Romance, get ready for a relationship or work situation to either suddenly blossom or disintegrate. The good news is that whatever happens will likely be initiated by you, as you’re suddenly hit by the realization that life is too short to fart around. Mars in your House of Self Worth and Venus in your House of Transformation would agree, especially by the time the weekend rolls around with a Scorpio Moon entering into your House of Dreams to square the God of War and the Goddess of Love. Mercury is also in your House of Relationships and he will make you want to express your feelings, for better or worse, especially since the Messenger Planet is opposing transformative Pluto in your sign, which is nothing short of a complete liberation from rules or attitudes that restrict who you want to be in any way, shape, or form.

 

Aquarius- If you’re sick of your job then the time may have come for you to finally look for something else. The Sun entering your House of Work and Uranus shaking up your Foundation are both aligning with Saturn behind the scenes, making it clear once and for all that the situation you are currently in is tantamount to death if you remain there. Mars in your sign will give you all the energy you need to search for a new situation, while Venus passing through your House of Relationships would speak to both new connections as well as being able to rely on those you’ve worked with in the past to spread the word that you’re now available. Mercury is also in your House of Work and as the Messenger Planet aligns with both Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career and Neptune retrograde in your House of Self Worth, look at things this way, if you’re still worried about whether or not you’re doing the right thing by leaving your job then consider this- all the planets I’ve just mentioned are in water signs, therefore, if it “feels right” to be leaving then get the hell out and don’t look back!

 

Pisces- This is not the time for you to be a wallflower or shy in any way, especially at work. Mars behind the scenes may have you feeling a little anxiety about being ambitious, yet Venus in your House of Work is trying to tell you that there is certainly opportunity present if you’re interested. The Sun entering your House of Creativity aligning with Uranus in your House of Communication may inspire you toward some bright ideas to improve things on the job. If that’s the case, then make sure you share these ideas with someone who can not only help you implement your plan, but also make sure you’re adequately compensated for the contribution. Mercury is also in your House of Creativity and the Messenger Planet is moving into a Grand Trine with both Jupiter and Neptune, both of whom are retrograde. In the past you have held yourself back in work situations by not feeling as though you were the leadership type, if that’s the case now then look to the Grand Trine that was just mentioned to help you learn to trust yourself and your intuition about what is right in a situation. The best leaders operate on instinct so start testing yours.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #38 Weekly Horoscopes for 5/28-6/3, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 5/28-6/3, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Mr. Saturn has a question for you…When was the last time you looked up into the sky, not just to check if it’s going rain, but to stare into an endlessness of azure until you lose your bearings and feel engulfed by eternity? Huh? This week if the weather is nice and the sky is clear, why don’t you take a moment and try to raise the ceiling of your thoughts by looking toward the heavens; perhaps an inspiration will respond?

Now for some Horoscopes!

 

Aries- If you’re expecting news from afar, this week’s Full Moon in Sagittarius will no doubt have you waiting with great optimism. I would like to say congratulations, but not so fast. Saturn in your House of Career will be inconjunct the Sun in your House of Communications, which will likely mean delays or some additional responsibilities on your part before an important project can go through. No doubt this will be annoying and you should get plenty of help with either your depression or righteous indignation from an inconjunct between the previously mentioned Full Moon and Uranus in your House of Self Worth. On the other hand, Mercury coming around to trine Mars in your House of Dreams should help you to deal with any unforeseen challenges and also help to remind you that what you’ve earned will not be denied, but there is a process to go through. As the Byrds once sang, “There is a time to every purpose under heaven.”

 

Taurus- This week’s Full Moon will occur in your House of Transformation and oppose the Sun in your House of Self Worth, which will likely give you a burst of optimism that you’ll most definitely need. I say this because the current Full Moon axis will have some unexpected shadows to it. The first will be Saturn in your House of Philosophy inconjunct the Sun, while the second will be Uranus inconjunct the Full Moon, likely giving whatever situations you may find yourself in a frustrating “one step forward, two steps back” feel. What will no doubt save the week for you will be a Grand Trine occurring between Neptune in your House of Groups, Venus in your House of Communication, and Jupiter retrograde in your House of Partnerships. This lucky alignment should enhance your interactions with both colleagues and loved ones so that patience, understanding, and cooperation will be the dominant themes and help you to keep any obstacles or difficulties in a proper perspective.

 

Gemini- Your ability to effectively interact with some recalcitrant individuals will be highlighted this week as the Full Moon lands in your House of Relationships. Saturn in your House of Transformation will be at odds with the Sun in your sign, likely bringing to the surface some deep seeded issues about surrendering control, while the previously mentioned Full Moon will be inconjunct Uranus behind the scenes. These two aspects together are probably referring to the defense mechanisms you still exercise that are no longer appropriate to who you currently are. You are no doubt going to be challenged, but try to recognize that if you come out swinging like you have in the past then you’ve only taken the bait. A Grand Trine between Venus in your House of Self Worth, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Work, and Neptune in your Public Image area would strongly suggest that you recognize your advantages in the situation and exercise some restraint. Like an old Taoist proverb states, “Strength will bide its time, while weakness feels a need to act.”

 

Cancer- The Full Moon axis this week is between your House of Work and your House of Confinement, meaning you should give careful thought to what you believe is holding you back as opposed to how you may be holding yourself back. The Sun behind the scenes in communicative Gemini is inconjunct Saturn retrograde in your House of Relationships, suggesting that you might be having a hard time differentiating between the constructive advice someone who truly cares for you is offering and the hurtful criticism you have received in the past from either insensitive family members or abusive partners. Uranus in your House of Groups is signaling that it’s time to let your freak flag fly and stop letting the vindictiveness of ignorant people get under your skin. Likewise, the Grand Trine between Venus in your sign, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Creativity, and Neptune in your House of Philosophy is all about luck if you could just stop worrying about the things you don’t have yet and remember instead how you’ve always managed to get whatever you have truly needed.

 

Leo- Any creative aspirations you might currently be having should be given some special attention this week as the Full Moon will be in that particular area of your chart. At the same time Saturn retrograde in your House of Work will be inconjunct the Sun in your House of Dreams, which could mean that making time for something that’s important to you may be difficult right now, however, with the previously mentioned Full Moon inconjunct Uranus realize that if there’s a will there’s a way, so decide what really matters and commit yourself to it. With a Grand Trine this week of Venus behind the scenes, Jupiter at Home, and Neptune in the House of Sex, the weekend could be the perfect time for you and someone special to either get out of Dodge or hunker down at their crib or yours for some romantic research. Make sure to take your time and play with feeling….”that’s the way, uh-huh, uh-huh, I like it, uh-huh, uh-huh….”

 

Virgo- There could be some serious discussion this week about what others expect of you as opposed to what you really want to do in a certain situation. The Full Moon inconjunct Uranus in your House of Philosophy could represent a real need for you to follow a different drummer, while the Sun inconjunct Saturn in your House of Creativity will represent the extra responsibility that will fall on your shoulders if you’re really serious about making your own kind of music. If you’re absolutely sure that you have to do you, then you also need to be clear with anyone else who’ll be affected by your decision. A Grand Trine later in the week between Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune should assure you not only the cooperation of someone whose opinion you’re concerned with, but good luck in your endeavors as well.

 

Libra- The Full Moon axis this week will be between your Houses of Communication and Philosophy with respective inconjuncts to both Uranus in your House of Transformation and Saturn in your House of Foundations, meaning that you could unexpectedly find that something you’ve been laboring on quietly in your own little corner of the world could have a much broader appeal than you might have suspected. A Grand Trine between Venus in your House of Career, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Earnings, and Neptune in your House of Work and Service could represent the lucky break you need and it could come about because of something you did in the past for someone who is now in a position of much greater influence.

 

Scorpio- At the same time that this week’s Full Moon in your House of Self Worth will be inconjunct Uranus in your House of Partnerships, Saturn will also be inconjunct to a flaky Gemini Sun in your House of Legacies, meaning that you need to make damn sure you’re not taken advantage of again by an employer who tries to substitute flattery for adequate compensation. In other words, talk softly in any new work situation but also be willing to wield that big old stinger y’all got if anyone messes with yo’ cheddar. A Grand Trine of Jupiter, Venus in your House of Philosophy, and Neptune in your House of Creativity would further suggest that a possible work opportunity could turn out to be quite lucrative as your organizational skills, work ethic, and leadership by example will impress a potential boss who’s quite willing to reward someone of your caliber if they show they can stand up for exactly what they’re worth.

 

Sagittarius- With the full Moon in your sign and a Gemini Sun in your House of Relationships, the time has come to be honest with yourself about what you expect of your friends as well as the past disappointments that have come about when those expectations have not been met. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth will simply ask what you think you deserve, and based on that you’ll be able to figure out if your hopes have been too high or if the people you think of as friends are merely underachievers when it comes to respecting your feelings or valuing what you do for them. The Grand Trine occurring between Jupiter behind the scenes, Venus in your House of Transformation, and Neptune at the Foundation of your chart might generally be a good thing, but there is a danger here that your need to be liked will outweigh your desire to be respected so that you’ll likely end up with what someone else thinks you deserve regardless of what your expectations may be. How does the saying go, “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.”

 

Capricorn- Saturn retrograde in your sign in a wacky aspect to a hard to pin down Gemini Sun in your House of Work could find you either under-employed or hating your job. Meanwhile, the Full Moon behind the scenes in an equally wacky aspect to Uranus in your House of Creativity could have you deciding to either find something better or else test the boundaries of what you can get away with where you are. A Grand Trine occurring between Jupiter, Venus, and Neptune in your Houses of Hopes, Relationships, and Communication respectively could inspire you to take an emotional or creative risk, especially since Jupiter and Venus in harmonious aspect are all about luck. However, since Neptune can sometimes be about illusion, first make sure there’s water in the pool before you leap!

 

Aquarius- What are you willing to convince yourself of in order to pursue a dream? The Full Moon inconjuncting Uranus at the bottom of your chart could have you thinking unrealistically about what you believe are your superpowers, while the Sun in your House of Creativity inconjuncting Saturn behind the scenes could also have you doubting yourself. Welcome to the crystal clear, yet totally illogical world of Aquarius. Under normal circumstances the Grand Trine occurring this week could be a great thing, but since it will include Neptune in your House of Self Worth, Jupiter in your Public Image area, and Venus in your House of Work, there is a definite potential here for some really serious illusions about how you see yourself as opposed to how others view you. If you’re convinced you should take a gamble make sure to ponder an old gambler’s saying before you bet the farm, “Don’t play if you can’t afford to lose.”

 

Pisces- The symbol for your sign is that of two fishes swimming in opposite directions, which is quite apropos considering that this weeks Full Moon axis has the Moon in your House of Ambition inconjunct Uranus, while The Sun at the lowest point in your chart is inconjunct Saturn retrograde in your House of Dreams. If it’s possible to repeat a mistake you’ve made in the past you probably will. On the other hand, if it’s possible to convince yourself you’re not making the same mistake twice when you are, then you’ll probably do that instead. In other words, you haven’t thought this through at all so some obvious problems that have been staring you in the face will likely seem like a complete surprise. The saving grace here is that Neptune in your sign (which would ordinarily compound the possibility of illusion taking hold) is involved in a Grand Trine with both Jupiter and Venus, who together are almost always about luck. I don’t know how much you’ll gain here (or learn for that matter) other than simply managing to dodge a bullet that would have had anybody else’s name on it considering the circumstances.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #37 Weekly Horoscopes for 5/21-5/27, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 5/21-5/27, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! Here we are for another round of the inimitable Mr. Saturn’s Stars so, without further adieu, let’s roll up for the Magickal Mystery Tour, step right this way!!!

“Magick is letting

The Unknown transform what we

Think about ourselves”

 

Aries- The Sun in your House of Communications aligning with Mars in your House of Dreams will have you wanting to share your opinions with everyone in the world, just don’t be surprised if it also turns out that you have to listen to a bunch of shit you’d rather not hear as a response; such is the price for free speech. Uranus entering your House of Self Worth will have you wanting to do things your way, although Saturn in your House of Career will also feel a need to remind you there are protocols to follow, which Venus passing through Cancer will help you with, if only because right now everything you’re hoping to gain is unfortunately contingent on obtaining someone else’s approval. By the time the Moon enters your House of Partnerships to square Saturn and then Pluto, you will have calmed down sufficiently enough so that the grinding of your teeth in frustration over various delays will only be audible inside your own head and not to the people you need to have sign your check.

 

Taurus- Mars passing through your House of Public Image will have others expecting an awful lot from you, while Uranus entering your Sign will also have you worrying that if you can’t deliver on these demands that it will mean you are a bad person. Let Saturn in your House of Philosophy help you to remain confident and professional as it aligns first with a practical Virgo Moon and then with a serious Scorpio Moon to close the week. Meanwhile, Mercury transiting through your sign and aligning with both Jupiter in your House of Partnerships and Neptune in your House of Groups should also be of service in helping you to find the proper compromise between being able to serve others while also respecting yourself. As the week ends with Venus in opposition to Saturn you will likely be feeling both a sense of accomplishment at what you were able to get done as well as a sense of pride at being able to stand up for yourself.

 

Gemini- With the Sun entering your sign this week and aligning with Mars in your House of Travel and Philosophy your imagination will likely be running wild, just make sure that Uranus behind the scenes doesn’t have you dwelling on how certain things might have been different if you had made other choices in the past. Mercury is also passing behind the scenes now and as he aligns with both Jupiter and Neptune you could find a very unusual (and perhaps humorous) solution for something that has been a problem at work. Saturn in your House of Transformation opposing Venus in your House of Self Worth could have you thinking about whatever may be missing in your life, and since Venus is transiting the sign of Cancer it would be no surprise if the possibility of having children might seem more real now than it ever has before. Just make sure your partner feels the same before you get too carried away.

 

Cancer- At the beginning of the week Uranus in your House of Dreams will be squaring Mars in your House of Transformation, which could have you feeling quite anxious to see your circumstances at work change or, at the very least, operate much differently than they have as of late. Jupiter in your House of Creativity is opposing Mercury in Taurus and that likely has you totally focused on the way things are instead of the way they could be if you allowed yourself to think outside of the box. Let Neptune in your House of Philosophy provide you with a little inspiration; perhaps a short trip (or a long one) might be in order to clear your mind and your frazzled nerves. Even a short stay in some different circumstances should help unleash the power of that inventive Gemini Sun as it passes through your House of Confinement and shines a light to show you some possible ways out of the darkness.

 

Leo- How far can you push a Lion before it roars or before it actually bites your damn head off? With Uranus in your House of Public Image squaring Mars in your House of Relationships, the line in the sand regarding how much you will put up with from someone will be tested this week, so be prepared. How angry you get will most likely be in direct correlation to how much you are willing to put up with, so make sure to set clear boundaries with someone that you know will likely cross them. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Home aligning with Neptune in your House of Transformation could mean that the potential transgressor we’ve been talking about could be a family member, so make a serious vow to yourself to speak softly and carry a big stick; and don’t be afraid to use it if necessary! A hard lesson may be the only lesson this person can really understand.

 

Virgo- This week should offer you an object lesson in how real learning can’t be planned but rather occurs because we think something else is happening. Uranus in your House of Long Distance Affairs could be a hint that a surprise is coming your way via a foreign culture or even just a radically different way of thinking, while Mars in your House of Work and Routines will likely indicate that this unexpected occurence could turn out to be quite disruptive to your normal way of doing things. The savior here will probably be Saturn in your House of Creativity as it helps you to realize the holes in your usual philosophy so that you can prevent being exploited again in the future. No matter what happens though it is important that you express your displeasure in the moment rather than pretend it’s no big deal and then lose your shit later on. Support for expressing yourself honestly should come from Jupiter retrograde in opposition to Mercury as it helps you to realize (and hopefully break) a pattern of accommodation that has never really served you.

 

Libra- The Playwright Sam Shepard once said, “When you hit a wall- of your own imagined limitations- just kick it in.” With Mars passing through your House of Creativity and squaring Uranus in your House of Transformation, just be careful that this wall we’re talking about doesn’t unexpectedly fall on your head first. Both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Foundations are most likely mandating this inner restructuring, meaning the operative thing to keep in mind here is to stay loose and keep your toothbrush packed so you can jump on that reality train the second it pulls out.  Venus in your House of Career opposing Saturn would further indicate that any changes coming about now will probably have beneficial long term effects on both your personal life and public image, just realize that all of this will be on a need to know basis so try not to get either too tragic or too optimistic about any of it because in either case you just don’t know! And you won’t until you turn on a light one day and life unexpectedly yells from a once dark room you thought was empty, “SURPRISE!!!”

 

Scorpio- There could be some real fireworks this week as volatile Uranus in your House of Relationships squares aggressive Mars in your House of Family and you recoil in horror at the rude and condescending opinions some of your supposed loved ones actually have toward you. Saturn in your House of Communications will demand an aggressive, although measured response to this nonsense, meaning let these people know you’re pissed, but do it in such a way that they don’t have a chance to hide behind the diversionary excitement of a shouting match. Jupiter retrograde in your sign aligning with Neptune would speak to the need for compassion in your expression, however, when we are under attack it is important to be compassionate with ourselves first, for it allows us not to stoop to our attackers level by reacting as though their ignorant insults are true. So kill them with good manners, just make sure you kill them (not really….hahaha).

 

Sagittarius- The time has come. This week when the shit hits the fan at work you will definitely get some on you. In the past you have been stealth enough to avoid any splattering fecal matter, however, this time it’s going to be like Pearl Harbor and you will have to do something. So what will it be? Saturn in your House of Self Worth will be about acknowledging what’s right and what’s wrong and not equivocating between the two as a strategy to avoid involvement. Jupiter retrograde behind the scenes will be egging you on by reminding you how you never used to be such a wuss, so how come you’ve turned into such a big one now? And last but not least, Mercury aligning with Pluto will be about confronting the truth, both within yourself as well as in regards to what’s happening in real time around you. The ship is sinking, either man the lifeboats and get out, grab a bucket and start bailing, or mutiny if the Captain has proven to be batshit crazy……..MISTER CHRISTIAN!!!

 

Capricorn- You are a serious sign that is about long-term achievement, hence you can put up with a lot of crap and struggle for years to succeed. However, with Mars now in your House of Self Worth squaring Uranus in your House of Creativity, you may have finally reached the end of your patience and feel the time has come to set the whole shit house on fire (euphemistically speaking) if you can’t have what you need. You’re usually pretty reasonable, but it’s going to be tough to convince you to continue sitting back as Jupiter in no nonsense Scorpio opposes Mercury in stubborn and focused Taurus. As the Sun passes into the resourceful air sign of Gemini and your House of Work, cast a few lines out into the world and see if there are some new and/or developing situations that could use a person of your caliber and commitment. Mr. Saturn isn’t advocating setting that fire mentioned previously, although there is nothing wrong with checking out how the prevailing winds are blowing, just in case.

 

Aquarius- With Mars in your sign you’re convinced you know what you want and how to get it, although with the planet of action squaring Uranus in your House of Foundations you should well consider the proverb, “be careful what you wish for,” as the results of your inspired efforts may not be at all what you expected. Saturn behind the scenes with Pluto would represent the material fear that’s driving your desire to transform your circumstances, while Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career aligning with Neptune would speak to the emotional security that would come from eliminating your material needs. Ultimately it’s important that you realize neither of these pathologies represents a recipe for anything other than furthering your control issues. To truly liberate yourself, follow the lead of the Sun in Gemini and your House of Creativity and try to be flexible enough to bend in the winds of change like a bamboo, rather than attempting to resist and snapping like a new sappling.

 

Pisces- As Uranus in your House of Communication squares Mars in erratic Aquarius behind the scenes, try to keep your cool if any difficulties arise in regards to exiting a situation that is no longer tenable for you. Saturn in your House of Groups and Dreams represents the protocols necessary for both getting and giving up something at this point in time, so try to follow the natural order to the best of your ability and don’t cut corners. Any avoidance of responsibility at this time could bring on some unforeseen hassles in the near future that you will end up feeling very stupid about when a just a little due diligence could have avoided the whole mess. With the Sun sweeping through your House of Symbolic Foundations change is certainly in the wind, just make sure you tie the riggings and batten down the hatches so you can sail into your next port of call flying the flag of a successful Man of War and not stinking up the joint like a dilapidated old fishing boat.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #25 Weekly Horoscopes for 2/26-3/4, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 2/26 – 3/4, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. In case you didn’t know, I am a New Yorker and proud of the fact that “assault weapons” are banned in our state. I <3 NY

 

 Aries- A word to the wise; you may be your own worst enemy this week so if you’re feeling antsy try counting to 10 (or 100 if necessary) to prevent your natural impetuousness from ignoring the writing on the wall that’s telling you to take it slow and go with the flow. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Career are making sure you’re moving along steadily like the little engine that could, yet it’s Mars in Sagittarius squaring a whole crowd of Pisces planets behind the scenes that has you not trusting that the limits confronting you now are there for a reason. Your animal totem is the Ram, so you naturally associate strength with the ability to relentlessly forge ahead without a break, however, with Venus in your House of Psychic Power aligning with Jupiter, the time has come for you to learn about “The Voice of the Silence,” that awareness which enables one to hear their inner wisdom, “just as the form to which the clay is modeled, is first united with the potter’s mind.”

Taurus- As a Fixed Earth Sign you certainly have your control issues, however, the time has come for you to realize that the need for control is really just a lack of trust in your ability to creatively adjust to a situation. A bunch of Pisces Planets in your House of Dreams no doubt have you fantasizing about your ambitions, yet in the meantime Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy and Jupiter in Your House of Partnerships are trying to remind you that there are certain responsibilities to be performed first if you really hope to succeed. Of course now you’ll probably start feeling guilty (and lazy) about what you’re not doing, meaning that Mars in your House of Legacies will likely be the ultimate determinant here as it squares the aforementioned dreamy Pisces Planets and scares you into action. Three cheers for negative reinforcement, though it can be quite exhausting. Just make sure you get your rest after making this whole business of wanting something a lot harder than it needs to be.

Gemini- For a Mutable Air Sign known for being adaptable, you can certainly find yourself in some real power plays where you end up proving just how stubborn you can really be. For instance, if there is something that you want (or need) from a current partner or a colleague, why don’t you just try asking them directly instead of frustrating yourself by waiting for them to figure it out. You can be righteous and say they should know without you telling them, but what is that kind of attitude on your part really about? The need to always be viewed as a nice person often ends up with you not being nice to yourself and that’s ultimately no one’s fault but your own. The Lunar Arc this week will traverse your Houses of Communication, Symbolic Foundations, and Creativity, so pay special attention to saying what you mean and meaning what you say and then be willing to allow the chips to fall where they may.

Cancer- Mr. Saturn likes to say, “Luck is about who you are, not what you do.” Venus in your House of Philosophy this week aligning harmoniously with Jupiter in your House of Creativity will reinforce these words of wisdom from Mr. Saturn, but only if you’re willing to listen and go after what you want without all the doubt you normally like to sabotage yourself with ahead of time. Venus will also be aligning with Pluto this week as well, so whatever difficulties you have been going through expect to rise from the ashes like the proverbial Phoenix and move toward those glorious horizons you have been envisioning for yourself and your loved ones. If your health has been a burden as of late, make sure you take the time to rest, not only to help your body heal but also to soothe your nerves. The Lunar Arc this week will see the Moon pass through your Houses of Self Worth, Thinking, and Symbolic Foundations, meaning that whatever bad habits you’re willing to let go of now could allow you to experience that “Unbearable Lightness of Being” you’ve always dreamed would be part of your destiny.

Leo- As a Fixed Fire Sign you can have some really strange notions about the world, yet has it ever occurred to you that some of these ideas may actually illustrate how you feel about yourself rather than what the world is like? With this in mind, a bad situation may ultimately be about what you’re not doing for yourself rather than any malice being directed at you. Mars in your House of Creativity is likely frustrating you right now, however don’t assume it’s because of a lack of opportunity. To truly be creative often means having to manifest something out of nothing, which is ultimately an indication of how you feel about yourself rather than the materials that may or may not be at hand. With an abundance of mutable planets in your chart at this time your level of success will ultimately depend upon how much you’re willing to let yourself be transformed by the challenges life presents you, rather than trying to maintain a stance that is more about your ego than your evolution.

Virgo- You may be feeling cornered this week in regards to some mixed messages you’re receiving from a partner. You don’t have to be a mind reader to already know this person can be insecure and stubborn, yet what’s probably more important for you at this time is to ask yourself exactly what you want and need from this relationship. Going tit for tat with this individual is a flat waste of your time simply because it allows them to draw a line in the sand and justify whatever it is they believe. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity is all about you determining the rules of engagement for this situation, which means do what you need to do and let this person have their learning experience about just how much control one person can be allowed over another. If you’re truly coming from a place of what’s fair and you sincerely have love in your heart, then as Jupiter trines Venus this week the two of you could experience a very positive turning point in this relationship.

Libra- If you think you can detach from the emotional changes that are happening to those you care for, then you probably don’t understand the gravity of your situation. With Saturn and Pluto moving ever so slowly through your House of Symbolic Foundations, it’s important for you to realize that the whole world is transforming and in the near future your comfort zone is also going to be obliterated like a sandcastle being swept away by the incoming tide. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth aligning with Venus in your House of Daily Routines and Work could be the silver lining in this current storm cloud, provided you can go with the flow and are willing to take one for the team. You’re not in this alone, therefore realize how important it is that you respect those close to you and the sacrifices they have made so you all can get through this challenging time together. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

The first way is “me,”

The second, “you,” the third, “we,”

The fourth, “what to do?”

 

Scorpio- Your intuition is particularly sharp now, especially in terms of knowing what will be successful in regards to a creative or work project you have been given control of. Opinions are like noses, everybody has one, except right now you can really smell where the roses of success are blooming so make sure you don’t let yourself get distracted by the cheap perfume of a hater’s ego. Venus and Mercury aligning with Jupiter in your sign this week should help to put you in the right place at the right time and with the addition of Pluto in your House of Communication and Thinking and Mars in your House of Earnings, your performance, leadership, and insights should bring you some well deserved rewards. Make sure you enjoy these victor’s spoils with that special someone who was willing to wait patiently in the wings while you were out conquering the world.

Sagittarius- Your success this week may hinge on what you don’t do rather than what you feel compelled to do, especially if you’re acting out of guilt or from pressure being exerted on you by someone else. Mars in your sign now will be providing a lot of energy, just make sure that this power source doesn’t turn you into an obsessive-compulsive who can be manipulated by anyone that is able to hone in on your insecurities and approval issues. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth should help with keeping you focused, although as I began by saying, perhaps this focus should be more on recognizing what you shouldn’t be doing rather than what your insecurities or someone else’s guilt trip are compelling you to do. Refuse to be held hostage by anyone who is reminding you of your past mistakes. Mr. Saturn has a haiku for you this week;

“Regret is fear of

What needs to be done next placed

In the wrong context”

 

Capricorn- With Saturn and Pluto in your sign “The times they are a-changin’”…and with The Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in the sign of Pisces and the House governing your mental abilities, your consciousness is evolving as well. If there’s a problem existing here it would have to be Mars behind the scenes in Sagittarius attempting to pollute any new found wisdom you may have recently acquired with some all too familiar paranoid blasts from the past. Believe the messages provided to you now as Jupiter in your House of Dreams and Groups trines Venus and you receive tangible feedback that you are an important person to those you are surrounded by. Let the cheers of your supporters elevate you to meet the necessary challenges ahead.

Aquarius- Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes are currently reminding you of what still needs to be done in your career, which is probably making you feel like you’re falling behind. The mark of an advanced person (and you certainly fancy yourself one) is that they hear criticism as encouragement if it motivates them to take action. That’s the high side of this Saturn/Pluto transit so make sure you get on it. Jupiter aligning harmoniously with Venus in your House of Earnings this week could bring you an unexpected windfall or gift that could help you hear that Saturn/Pluto chatter with a bit less worry. Mars moving into aspect with Uranus in your House of Communication could be either a stroke of genius or some self-destructive rebelliousness, therefore think twice before you let your freak flag fly right now if you have hopes of eventually unfurling it from the highest mountaintop. Nuff said!!!

Pisces- With the Sun, Venus, Mercury, and Neptune in your sign and all of them aligning with Jupiter in your House of Philosophy, this could be a time of great insight, especially in areas that previously had either confused you or were of no particular consequence due to a lack of experience. These situations have probably come about because you have either been cornered by circumstances that are requiring you to do something different, or else your own ambitions have lead you to specific obstacles that must be overcome in order to succeed. Either way Mars in your House of Career and Uranus in your House of Self Worth will be pushing you to rise to the occasion and make your creative ambitions a tangible reality. Meanwhile, Saturn and Pluto in your House of Dreams will motivate you to be more thorough, responsible, and dependable toward others than you ever have before. This could be your time little fishy so stroke….stroke…..

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #24 Weekly Horoscopes for 2/19-2/25, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 2/19- 2/25, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars.

 

Aries- With a whole cluster of planets gathered together behind the scenes for you in the mutable and highly sensitive sign of Pisces, you are experiencing a rare moment of indecision in your usual full steam ahead mind set. This is because Mars in your House of Philosophy has you feeling restless and wanting to bust out of your daily routine, while Saturn and Pluto in your House of Career are both reminding you to keep your nose to the grindstone. I think your lesson at this time is not based on either/or but rather learning how to be patient and accepting that what’s in front of you now is both what needs to be done and the way it’s supposed to be.

Taurus- The conflict that exists for you now is between what is expected of you by others versus what you’d really like to do. This could get tricky because some of the things that others expect of you are actually in your best interests, yet it seems as if you are always doing something for somebody else and right now you’re feeling a real urge to bust out and do you. Let Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy guide you in regards to what is really in your best interests and try to re-evaluate where your fear of being taken advantage of really comes from. Perhaps your approval issues are to blame rather than anyone trying to dominate you?

Gemini- As a mutable Air Sign you are a creature of constantly evolving ideas, meaning that you are always changing your mind and weighing the validity of one concept against another. What will make this week different though is that this won’t be a time of shifting ideas, but rather one of changing emotions. Your partner will likely end up bearing the brunt of this transformation, though it’s important for you to keep in mind that your expectations and judgments of this person might not be the real problem. Perhaps the situation is really a case of you projecting your insecurities onto them, meaning the time has come to realize that if you’re expecting them to make you feel safe, then it’s really about your lack of confidence rather than their lack of success.

Cancer- Your process is to obsess on any problem that may be facing you until it rises to monumental proportions in your mind and totally stresses you out. At that point all that bottled up energy will then explode into a burst of creative energy that will take care of whatever it may have been. Sound exhausting? It is. If you consider yourself a Spiritual person then this week could be the time you finally see this fight or flight pattern you create for yourself for precisely what it is, meaning that the real adversary here is not life in general but you. A partner could help you with this realization if for once you’d just listen to them and trust that when they suggest you calm down they are not criticizing you.

Leo- Believe it or not this could be a time of genuine mystical revelation if you could just embrace the profundity of your sign’s fixed nature instead of allowing its rigidity to limit what you think is possible. No one would ever call a Lion a cowardly animal, so what is your problem with doing something different in a particular situation if it has been making you unhappy for a long time? Try to realize that constantly complaining about your circumstances and then not taking action is a subtle and insidious path to disempower by indirectly convincing yourself the problem is insurmountable. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

“Unwillingness to

Try will always prove something

Is impossible”

Virgo- This is a time of very serious challenges for you, however, by the same token it can also be a time of great advances in your personal development. Motivation to face certain aspects of yourself that need to change could come from a partner who is refusing to face similar work they need to do for themselves. This type of symbiosis is what truly defines a soul mate, so instead of blaming this person for their faults and using that as an excuse, instead try to embrace your shortcomings and see how the other person reacts. Either you will transcend your limitations together or a long-standing karmic chain could be broken setting you both free to change your destiny as individuals. I know this sounds all New Agey, but the power of love is based on this exact kind of synthesis or division, which in Ancient times was referred to as “Alchemy.”

Libra- The Mind-Body Connection is going to come up big time for you this week with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Neptune all in your House of Health squaring Mars in your House of Thinking. Pay attention to your stress levels and try not to sweat the small stuff. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Symbolic Foundations are likely going to make it feel like the Earth is shifting under your feet and the tendency will be to resist, creating a great deal of pressure that could be very exhausting. It is important at this time to realize that the world is not against you, rather the time has come for you to see what you’re made of in order to embrace and utilize your true potential. Understand that great challenges await those who are destined to succeed. In the words of Maximus from “Gladiator”, “What we do now echoes in eternity!”

Scorpio- With Mars in your House of Self Worth squaring a whole bunch of planets in your House of Creativity you are driven at this time toward finding deep fulfillment. If it’s in the emotional realm you could be feeling very hot to trot and find yourself seriously driven to fall in love (or at least into lust). If it’s in the material realm then it will be all about money for you and establishing some real security for the future. As a result, Saturn and Pluto in your House of Communication and Thinking will make this a time of some radical theoretical shifts in how you think about life and what you need from it, while Jupiter in your sign will motivate you to master your environment or perhaps even another person as the case may be. Either way, this is a time when you will be embracing Yin/Yang, Jekyll and Hyde, and even Life and Death within yourself and the surrounding world in order to be all you can be.

Sagittarius- This is it! With Mars in your sign squaring the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Neptune all in Pisces and your House of Symbolic foundations and Family, the time has come for you to confront just how much you are controlled by either your family or some other group dynamic that you’re convinced determines who you are. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth in turn represent the struggle of your destiny trying to form as you first reject what you are not in order to discover what you are. Jupiter behind the scenes in the transformational sign of Scorpio would then represent the irresistible forces of karma driving you to this ultimate confrontation with what you see in the mirror. Of course the mythical and archetypal aspects of this inner struggle probably have you feeling utterly confused, which should then set the stage for unpredictable Uranus in your House of Creativity to motivate you to do something totally liberating! Go for it!!!

Capricorn- With Jupiter in your House of Groups and Dreams aligning with Pluto and Saturn in your House of Self, you will likely appear to others to be totally clear on where it is you’re going. On the other hand, with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Thinking squaring Mars behind the scenes, you are actually quite confused and longing for a sense of peace and stability. In addition, you could be experiencing certain psychic insights that are no doubt compelling but also seem to have no realistic context. Not a good place for a formidable Earth sign like yourself to be, but not a bad place either as your evolutionary clock is ticking and you are desperately in need of some new ideas about the nature of so-called “Reality.” When the student is ready the teacher appears, which in this case is crazy ol’ Uranus in your House of Symbolic Foundations cryptically repeating, “The Tao that can be explained is not the real Tao. Inscrutable? Yes. Hopeless? No. Keep the faith, baby.

Aquarius- Your dream is to be loved in a simple and profound way without the pettiness of human foibles to taint the picture. Really? Grow up! It is precisely the imperfections of our humanity that define the very nature of love, for without our peccadillos and high crimes virtues such as compassion, understanding, and ultimately forgiveness all become impossible because we would have no reason to do any of those things. Enlightenment is not an intellectual exercise and with a cluster of Piscean planets in your House of Self Worth you might actually for once be in a place to truly understand this, like getting caught in the rain without an umbrella in order to finally realize you won’t melt if you get wet.

Pisces- As a sign ruled by Neptune you certainly have the propensity to gain a very profound level of enlightenment, likewise you also have the potential to get entirely immersed in your illusions as if you were lost in a hall of mirrors at a carnival. You are like a sponge now as you deeply experience some very profound insights, although if anyone asked you would probably say that you’re not quite sure what the truth is about anything. Perfect answer! This is a time to look, listen, and learn, not to act; at least not yet. The time for action will reveal itself to you like an approaching swell reveals itself to a surfer. To start paddling too soon would likely end in a wipe-out, but to wait for the proper moment could result in a ride that could seem like an endless summer. This is your time now, to trust that is to trust yourself.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #22 Weekly Horoscopes for 2/5-2/11, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes  for 2/5 – 2/11, 2018

 

 Hi kids! Glad to see you back at Mr. Saturn’s Stars.

 

“I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope

For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without

love

For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet

faith

But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.”

-T.S. Eliot

 

Aries- The Lunar Arc for this week could bring you some very valuable lessons about relationships that you’re convinced you’ve already learned. You hard charging Rams don’t like to reflect too much or linger any longer than you have to, which means you probably won’t get it this time around either.  The Moon  squaring Pluto in your House of Relationships will likely make you unable to accept a certain situation so that you’ll probably end up feeling unfulfilled and restricted by it. A conjunction with Jupiter in your House of Transformation will then make you feel a need to resist being controlled at all costs. The Moon conjunct Mars in your House of Philosophy will next allow you to justify running away or rebelling, but then successive conjunctions of the Moon with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Public Image and Career will leave you feel lonely and misunderstood. At this point you’ll  probably convince yourself that it’s an either/or situation between a relationship and a career so that  distracting yourself through work will seem like the only justifiable solution for you to be you. While all this is going on The Sun, Venus, and Mercury will all be in your House of Groups and aligning nicely with Uranus in your sign, meaning that as you sabotage a close relationship with your insecurity, your public image will appear to be that of a charismatic and free spirit; talk about parallel universes! Mr. Saturn’s shaking his head; he’s got nothing on this one.

Taurus- This is a time when you need to consciously take control of the circumstances in your life. The Sun, Mercury, and Venus are all in your House of Career and Public Image and they all more or less square Jupiter in your House of Partnerships. This means don’t be aftraid to ask people for what you want. Don’t wait to be given a gift if it’s something you deserve. If someone close to you is starting to seem a little manipulative they probably are. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy will make you go back and forth on this (as well as with a number of other things that are going on) but with Pluto coming into alignment with Jupiter don’t feel guilty about putting your needs first. Uranus behind the scenes has been providing a certain amount of anxiousness within you for awhile, but now that all those Aquarius planets are lining up with the planet of freedom to confirm that you’re not crazy, make sure you trust your intuition and do what your heart tells you regarding who to trust and who not to trust. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is yours;

“Destiny is the

Inheritance we get from

Fate after a choice”

Gemini- You are a mutable Air Sign meaning that your mind will literally go whichever way the wind blows. This is particularly true at this time as The Sun, Mercury, and Venus all align harshly with Jupiter in one direction and beneficially with Uranus in the other. This could make you want something (or someone) just because circumstances won’t allow it, or it could make you give up on something (or someone) just because that’s the easiest thing to do right now. As Mars moves into a square with Neptune make sure you’re seeing the situation for what it really is; meaning be aware that what’s going on may actually originate from how you feel about yourself and not some outer reality dictating your existence. Be especially careful over the weekend if a charming stranger seems like they have all the answers to your topsy-turvy life, they don’t, but you may unwittingly have something they could beg, borrow, or steal to satiate their appetite for ego gratification. The Lunar Arc for you this week begins in the House of Creativity and ends in the House of Death and Transformation, meaning responsibility will follow action for you this week as immediately as burps follow beer, so don’t chug that mug just because you feel challenged to prove yourself.

Cancer- With a cluster of planets moving through your House of Legacies and Transformation and aligning with Uranus in your House of Public Image, you have been compelled so far this year to take care of everyone else’s needs but your own. With that same group of planets squaring Jupiter in your House of Creativity you also need to recognize that your life is a steaming locomotive rapidly running out of track, meaning that it’s high time you started taking care of what you need to do for yourself and calling in as many markers as possible to get help. Those who let you down will not be your friends in this next cycle of your life that is rapidly approaching. Pluto in your House of Relationships has been transforming how you deal with others for a while now and with the recent addition of Saturn into that same House you are being asked to swim with the tide instead of feeling that you are being drowned under a tidal wave of circumstances beyond your control. At the end of the week Venus will be entering your House of Philosophy to join Neptune in its home sign of Pisces, with both squaring Mars in your House of Daily Routines and Health. Please my sensitive little crustacean friend, learn to trust the changing tides, after all, you are a creature of the sea.

Leo- The needs and demands of a significant other may have finally reached the point of being untenable unless something is done, though not by you as they have already worn out that option. You Lions are always the last ones to realize it when you’re being taken advantage of, especially if the perpetrator is making you feel like you’re the most important person in their life. If this manipulation is happening on the home front then there isn’t any action on your part that’s needed, but rather non-action. Stop doing stuff that they should be doing, whether that means trying to counsel them about a situation they complain about constantly but won’t change, or cleaning up after them. In other words, stop being whatever they need you to be and start being what you need to be in your own life. Of course this will mean confronting your fears about being alone, but with Mars moving through rebellious Sagittarius on its way to an inevitable confrontation with Uranus not too long from now either you plan how this difficult situation is going to play out or else be surprised when your partner acts like an emotional kamikazi. Mr. Saturn understands this isn’t going to be pretty, but he is telling you what you need to hear and you know it. Remember the line from the song, “I can do bad all by myself.” Word!

Virgo- Saturn and Pluto in your House of Fun and Creativity is where your focus should be this week. Jupiter in Scorpio aligning with the aforementioned pair will likely have you wondering, could there be more fun in my life? At the same time a bunch of Aquarius planets moving through your House of Routines and aligning with Uranus will stimulate you to reflect on how you spend your time if, in fact, you’re not enjoying yourself? Venus will enter Pisces and your House of Partnerships at the end of the week, where it will eventually join with illusionary Neptune before squaring Mars in your House of Home and Symbolic Foundations. How much is a partner requiring of you on a day-to-day basis and to what extent do these expectations consider what your needs are? Hmmm. The Lunar Arc this week will begin in the sign of Libra, which naturally governs relationships and represents your House of Self Worth, where it will first square Saturn and then Pluto before finishing up at the end of the week toe to toe with those same revolutionary boys, Saturn and Pluto, in your House of Creativity. Mr. Saturn say’s, “Try to remember that the word “revolution” also includes the word “love” in it.

Libra- The French Poet Rimbaud (a Libran native) once wrote; “Now is the eve. Let us receive every influx of strength and true tenderness/And at dawn, armed with an ardent patience, we’ll enter into the splendid cities.” What you’re going through now is the stuff from which true poetry is made. The Sun, Mercury, and Venus in your House of Creativity are all angling harshly with Jupiter in your house of Self Worth, setting the stage for some of your long held ideals to clash with reality. Meanwhile, Uranus in your House of Relationships annoyingly keeps repeating that the only true freedom is in being yourself and fighting the good fight. So what is this ardent patience referred to by Mr. Rimbaud? That would be the presence of both Pluto and Saturn in your House of Symbolic Foundations at the very bottom of your chart, each of them working with Neptune as you sort out true visions from illusions and fleeting friendships from real love. The Lunar Arc for the week will descend from your ascendant to your IC, making it seem as if you are entering a dark night of the soul, although along the way the strength and true tenderness referred to in the Rimbaud quote will also be present in the form of Mars in Sagittarius and Venus entering Pisces. Mr. Saturn would encourage you to hang in there and, “May the odds ever be in your favor.”

Scorpio- As The Sun, Mercury, and Venus all sweep across the bottom of your chart and square Jupiter in your sign, you could be experiencing some unexpected delays either at work or on the home front. Not too worry. There is a metaphysical side to all of this that will be activated when Venus enters your House of Creativity, at which point she will sextile Uranus and then square Mars, motivating you to do what needs to be done as you come to the enlightening realization that the challenges life presents us are often the very blessings we need to truly change our realities and make Magick happen. The Lunar Arc this week will also be an illustration of this theme as the Moon begins its journey in your House of Confinement and then continues on through your Houses of Self Worth and Ideas, mirroring the process of birth as you emerge from a symbolic womb to be born into a world of limitless possibilities. As William Blake wrote in his Marriage of Heaven and Hell, “No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings.”

Sagittarius- The bottom of an Astrological Chart represents a person’s symbolic foundations. In your case, with Neptune lingering down there for so long you probably feel like a shipwreck survivor adrift in a vast ocean where nothing ever seems to change except for the sun going up and down. On the other hand, with Mars having recently entered your sign another part of you is beginning to feel inspired by a whole new level of energy starting to emerge, the likes of which you’ve probably not felt since back in the day when you were younger and life seemed to present more exciting possibilities. As Mars continues forward and comes into alignment with Mercury in your House of Communication you could likely encounter an unexpected opportunity, either at work or involving a special interest you have. Pluto and Saturn in your House of Self Worth are requiring you to step up and be more ambitious, meaning that any added responsibilities you are willing to accept in your career at this time will likely bring worthwhile dividends in the future. When Venus enters your Home area over the weekend expect that a loved one will need your special attention.

Capricorn- Mr. Saturn say’s, “Impatience is a doppelganger who doesn’t believe in you.” With Mars behind the scenes in your House of Confinement rapidly moving toward an exact square with Neptune in your House of Thinking, this could end up turning into a very anxious week for you as you find yourself worrying and wondering about everything. Add to this the fact that the Sun, Mercury, and Venus in your House of Self Worth are in a harsh angle with Jupiter in your House of Dreams and you’re also probably going to feel judged, yet the question is, by whom? The Lunar Arc beginning in your House of Public Image could have you overly concerned about what others may be thinking, so by the time it enters your sign to close the week you could be knee-deep in fixing things that may not really need to be fixed. Saturn and Pluto in your sign will be offering some sound advice on being careful about how much you worry about what you don’t have, simply because it usually means you’re also likely overlooking what you do have. This is where that doppelganger will be taunting you with ultimatums and judgments about how you should be doing so much better instead of wasting time. Mr. Saturn has a haiku for you this week;

“How much of our fear

Is simply the learning curve

For finding our strength?”

Aquarius- With the Sun, Venus, and Mercury all in your sign and squaring Jupiter in your House of Career you may have some of those close to you asking, “who are you and what have you done with (fill in your name)”? Neptune in your House of Self Worth is not helping to clear up this question, which is just fine with you as long as you remain the center of attention and Mars in your House of Groups has an audience to conquer. Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes will manage to keep things exciting much in the same way that a civil war is exciting, but at what price? Your ambition is ruthless right now, but so is your naiveté when it comes to how fast and loose you think you can play chicken with the balance of the universe. As Venus pulls into Pisces to end the week make sure that you’re not mistaking the admiration of others for love, especially when there is no humility present on your part. Mr. Saturn is feeling inspired this week so he has a haiku for you as well;

“We cast out lines to

Catch fish, yet rarely think past

The water’s surface”

Pisces- The Sun, Venus, and Mercury are all in your House of Confinement and squaring Jupiter in your House of Philosophy, meaning that perhaps the opinions of others are holding a little too much sway with you right now, regardless if you’re trying to conform or rebel as both represent flip sides of the same coin. Saturn and Pluto together in your House of Dreams could also seem like they’re really cracking the whip on you now as it feels like you’re being made to struggle more than you should have to for everything you need. Take heart, there is a silver lining in this cloud of difficulty surrounding you, although complaining about what’s happening or blaming others won’t help you to see it. When Venus enters your sign at the end of the week and starts to approach a beneficial alignment with Saturn in your House of Dreams, you may get a glimpse of the person you’re capable of becoming as you manage to rise to the occasion in a very difficult situation. Because Venus is currently very close to Neptune at this time and both are in your sign, the lesson here will likely involve compassion and selflessness, which may be just what you needed to learn to permanently change your luck.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #21 Weekly Horoscopes for 1/29 – 2/4, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 1/29 – 2/4, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Welcome again to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. There’s a song by The Mamas and the Poppas stuck in my head now and I just can’t stop humming it. It’s called “Own Kind Of Music” and I ‘d like to dedicate the lyrics of it to the 800,000 “Dreamers” out there who have been left swinging in the wind by our elected officials. For some reason these “suits” couldn’t seem to understand the fact that over 80% of your fellow Americans want you here to stay, including Mr. Saturn.

I’d also like to send the song out to all you “Lost” fans that might remember the tune from the first episode of season two when the world of “The Island” was suddenly transformed (4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42).

“Nobody can tell ya

There’s only one song worth singin’,

They may try and sell ya,

‘Cause it hangs them up to see someone like you.

But you’ve gotta make your own kind of music

Sing your own special song,

Make your own kind of music, even if nobody else sings along.”

 

Aries- This week’s Super Full Moon in your House of Creativity and Romance will be aligning with Mars in your House of Philosophy, meaning that you’ll likely be full of ideas, inspirations, and even some amorous desires that you’ll want to turn into immediate realities. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Career would point to time being on your side right now in terms of getting where you want to go, but only if you can remain patient and make sure to cross every “t” and dot every “i” as you move forward. The Sun, Venus, and Mercury in your House of Groups should insure plenty of cooperation from any playmates and/or co-conspirators as you push forward to conquer whatever it is you’re after, although with an inconjunct between the Super Moon and Neptune in your House of Secrets you could end up revealing more than you should to someone you’re just getting to know. You have a lot going for you now, just make sure not to let your current optimism turn into irresponsible euphoria or a sophomoric infatuation with fame and fortune. Mr. Saturn would remind you “Nothing exceeds like excess is only true in the film Scarface.”

Taurus- The struggle for you now is to realize that your current perspective is still largely based on whom you were and how you used to think, rather than who you’ve become and how the circumstances of your life have changed. This week’s Super Moon is in your House of Symbolic Foundations and it aligns with Mars in your House of Transformation, indicating that you’re already the person you’ve been striving to be; all that’s left now is to act like it. You currently possess the resources to make some long held dreams come true, therefore, have the confidence to take a calculated risk and stop thinking of what could go wrong as if you were being made to jump out of an airplane without a parachute. With Venus in your House of Career squaring off with Jupiter in your House of Partnerships, make sure that you also understand what it means to help people help themselves instead of letting them become codependent and drain your energy. Mr. Saturn would say, “Teach them to fish, don’t keep treating them at the fish market.”

Gemini- This could be a time when your usual racehorse mind might actually stop creating problems by trying to head life off at the pass and instead let things simply be what they are. This might allow you to remember why you’ve chosen the path you’re on rather than constantly worrying about whether or not you’ll be successful. This week’s Super Moon in your House of Communication aligning with Mars in your House of Relationships might find you finally being honest with someone close to you, instead of talking around things to spare their feelings while at the same time ignoring your own. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Death and Transformation are currently aligning with Neptune in your House of Public Image in order to help you realize that what you said to this person was not only in your best interests but theirs as well. In other words, the time has come for you to significantly close the anxiety gap between needing to be accepted by others and simply feeling good about doing what’s right for you. As the Jefferson Airplane sang, “You can do whatever you please/ The world’s waiting to be seized/ You can collect all neglect/ Or all the self respect you need.”

Cancer- The Moon is your ruling planet and this week’s Super Moon in Noble Leo should have you feeling like Popeye after he’s eaten his spinach, especially since it will be aligning with Mars in “I don’t give a sh*t” Sagittarius. Just remember to keep your cool with a hater, after all, like it say’s in the song that’s quoted at the beginning of this week’s horoscopes, “’Cause it hangs them up to see someone like you.” Mercury will also be aligning with Mars this week so you should not only feel spunkier than usual but also sharp as a razor, so sharp in fact that those haters I mentioned before won’t realize your rapier like wit has cut them to the quick until you’re long gone and their pride is dripping on the floor. A Fixed Jupiter/Venus square over the weekend involving your Houses of Creativity and Transformation should have you once again solving the world’s problems, yet at the same time also forgetting to keep for yourself some of that Infinite Love and Compassion you channel for everyone else. Nevertheless, your guardian Angel (and Mr. Saturn) will be watching over you, so don’t be surprised if there’s a nice glass of wine waiting when you get home.

Leo- Having the Super Moon in your sign this week begs the question, what do you need to do that you’ve been neglecting? Mars in flammable Sagittarius aligning with the Super Moon will undoubtedly light a fire under your arse; are you feeling the heat yet? Jupiter on the Home Front squaring Venus in your House of Relationships would suggest you tap into some of that Leo Nobility and take the lead to improve the situation for you and yours. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Routines have no time or patience for lip service now, so take off those lazy Leo lounging pants and grab a hammer and fix something (even if that means hitting yourself in the head a few times to stimulate the blood flow to your brain). Once you get in gear Uranus will floor it and then you’ll suddenly remember how you like being in charge and having everyone look up to you. And don’t worry about those lumps on your head. That fine mind of yours is now functioning at optimum level and that Leonine charisma has also kicked in, meaning that someone may just want to soothe what ails you (if you get my drift, and I know you do with all that blood circulating). Hell, even Mr. Saturn is blushing.

Virgo- With this week’s Super Moon in Leo aligning with Neptune in your House of Relationships and Mars in your Home area, this could be the perfect time to review the underlying dynamics of your closest associations. Jupiter in your House of Communications and Venus in your House of Routines are trying to point out that perhaps your willingness to always be of service to those you care for might have created a situation where these individuals are now taking you for granted. The transit of both Saturn and Pluto through your House of Creativity then becomes about taking the necessary steps to restructure how your relationships play out by learning to say “no” when it is appropriate for your sanity and well being. You could also be confronting a similar problem on the work front as you find yourself tiring under the strain of needing to be nice to people who are not being very nice to you. Take a deep breath or count to ten and if that doesn’t work then try to think of that glass of wine that’s waiting for you at home. You might also try to take solace in the insightful words of the U.S.A’s most recent Nobel Laureate in Literature, “I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes/ You’d know what a drag it is to see you.”

Libra- Your are effectively being triangulated by feelings of dark foreboding as the week begins with foggy Neptune in your House of Routines and Work, Saturn and Pluto in your Home area, and a very personal Jupiter in Scorpio being squared by a very impersonal Venus in Aquarius. Add to all this the Super Moon in your House of Dreams aligning with Mars in your House of Writing and Communication and the stage is set for you to be feeling all dressed up with no place to go. Take heart though, only 13 minutes after the Super Moon arrives Mercury will enter your House of Creativity, meaning you could finally receive some tangible proof that the world hasn’t forgotten about you and that life really does go on after the sh*t has hit the fan. To continue the lyrics of the song that was quoted in the introduction to this week’s horoscopes, “It may be rough goin’,/ Just to do your thing’s the hardest thing to do.” I know this is a hard time but hang in there my scale friends, eventually good stuff will start to happen and balance out this massive fertilizer avalanche you’ve been experiencing so far in 2018.

Scorpio- As the Monty Python Boys used to say, “No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!” In other words, get ready for some surprises this week as the Super Moon explodes like a Super Nova in your House of Dreams just as Mercury arrives in Aquarius at the bottom of your chart to align with Mars in your House of Self Worth. This will all be very exciting and things will no doubt happen quickly, although with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Mental Processes and Thinking you will no doubt try to wrap your mind around it all before you allow yourself even the smallest “OMG, I DON’T BELIEVE THIS!” Well, believe it. You have an opportunity now to make your life into anything you want, you could even fall in love, but no matter what happens your control issues will be seriously challenged. Therefore, take some time over the weekend to reflect and ask yourself the following question, “Where do I want to be in 5 years and is it possible to get there if I’m not willing to trust what’s happening now? Your sign rules death, so why not try to look at all these current unexpected happenings as a kind of “petite morte”, after all, don’t the French say such little deaths feel good?

Sagittarius- Sometimes enlightenment is like a cannon going off and other times it’s the sound of one hand clapping. The Super Moon this week will be in Leo and your House of Philosophy and it will oppose Mercury in Aquarius and your House of Day to Day Thinking. Simply put, on the one hand you will have the Super Moon in the Sun ruled sign of Leo showing what’s possible, and on the other hand you will have communicative Mercury in Aquarius, which rules the collective and the status quo. The ego versus the hive mind with both channeling a tremendous amount of energy into your sign just as Mars, the planet of action, comes charging in. Saturn and Pluto currently in your House of Self Worth represent structure and destruction respectively, so with Mars arriving and awaiting further orders from you there’s no getting around the fact that this is a time of personal revolution. So, what will your manifesto be and who will write it? Jupiter behind the scenes aligning with Pluto and Saturn represents the philosophical dilemma of wealth versus ethics, or the eternal struggle of the haves and the have not’s. Which do you feel like and are you ready to re-evaluate what you think you deserve?

Capricorn- There are two conflicting tendencies going on within you right now. The first is about what you think people expect of you, while the other is much more intimate and represents what you secretly long for but fear you may not deserve. At this time, The Sun, Venus, and Mercury in your House of Self Worth represent your outward desire to be successful, although it is important to recognize how much this ambition could also be the projection of some hidden approval issues. The Super Moon in Leo this week will be in your House of Intimacy and it will align with Mars behind the scenes to ignite some very strong passions in you now for a deep one on one relationship. The more you try to subvert this emotional longing into a material form, the more depressed and frustrated you will likely get, especially with Saturn and Pluto in your sign opposing your House of Partnerships. Any truly profound metamorphosis for you at this time will likely have to do with how you approach an intimate one on one relationship rather than how you detach from your emotions to negotiate the professional sphere. As a word to the wise Mr. Saturn would suggest, “The time to hesitate is through/no time to wallow in the mire.”

Aquarius- You have been focused on succeeding at one thing for so long now you apparently have forgotten that life is a full spectrum affair. Well, the Super Moon in your House of Relationships aligning with Mars in your House of Dreams will serve to remind you what’s what in dramatic fashion. In fact, you should hear Cupid laughing at just about the same time as you feel an unexpected sharp pain in your butt. “OMG!!! Have I been shot with an arrow!!” Surprise!!! Unlike in your career, which you have been directing with ruthless efficiency over the last few months, this love thing is going to present a big time challenge to all your control and vulnerability issues. You’re not used to being emotional, but with Neptune currently in your House of Self Worth, you might be pleasantly (or unpleasantly) surprised at just how mushy you can get. Whatever you do though, try not to turn an affair of the heart into a performance in any way, shape, or form. With the Sun and Venus currently in your sign you certainly have enough charm and charisma going for you now to get away with play-acting at being the lover, however, don’t underestimate the backlash (and ultimate regret on your part) if you engage someone else’s heart and then get cold feet. As the song goes, “What’s it all about when you sort it out, Alfie?/Are we meant to take more than we give/Or are we meant to be kind?”

Pisces- Jupiter in your House of Philosophy squaring Venus behind the scenes is going to make you even more sensitive than usual. Add to this the Super Moon aligning with Mars and Mercury and you will probably feel more courageous about expressing yourself emotionally than you ever have before. This will certainly go against type and the “cool” image you have previously cultivated, but that’s a good thing, maybe even a great thing. Neptune in your sign has had you lost in a fog for a while and no doubt in true Neptunian fashion you have instead tried to pretend like you really know what’s going on. It’s not only been a rollercoaster ride for you, but for everyone that cares about you as well. The good news is that while Neptune can be about illusion, it can also be about enlightenment. So if we now go back to the square of Jupiter and Venus, we can start to see that the action of Jupiter in your House of Philosophy is trying to clear up some of that Neptunian confusion surrounding the nature of your feelings. This is because with Venus in the universal and unemotional sign of Aquarius, you are being given some guidance in how to get passed the confinement of your fear so that you may experience the strength, vulnerability, and forgiveness necessary to fully experience true love. And like the song say’s, “All You Need is Love”….Dah, da da da da….
