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 #23 Weekly Horoscopes for 2/12-2/18, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 2/12 – 2/18, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Valentine’s Day is this week so Mr. Saturn is going to talk exclusively on the subject everyone always wants to know about, namely, Love… <3… although be forewarned, what follows is gonna be REAL…

 

The Gardener

Love from the past

Is a dry, dead rose

Pressed and flat

In a book of poems

 

Hopeful Love

Is a pretty bouquet

To a maiden from her suitor

In a romantic play

 

But the Love before us

Is there in the dirt

To be tilled by the gardener

Who believes in the work“

 

Aries- If you’re in a committed relationship explain to your partner what you’re really feeling instead of just doing what you want and then expecting to win the argument afterwards, even if revealing your doubts makes you a little uncomfortable (especially if it makes you uncomfortable). If you’re single decide what the scariest thing about a relationship is for you, because if you think you’re ready for one it’s going to be that deep down, hidden fear you’re harboring that will be the gate keeper.

Taurus- If you have a partner make sure that they are valuing you as much as you are enamored of them. In addition, be careful of a stale relationship turning into a power play when all you really need to do is spice it up a bit. If you’re single, take a moment to write down all your good qualities and then realize that any potential partner who doesn’t recognize you have these attributes certainly isn’t worth your time.

Gemini- Pay attention to how you and a partner are communicating. Make sure that the agreeableness of your significant other isn’t just a way of disengaging and letting you believe what you want to. You single twins will have that special something going on right now, just pay attention not to let a charming someone sneak off with the family jewels.

Cancer- If partners agree on everything then one of them is redundant. Relax some of your control issues and let the differences between you and your significant other fuel a loving evolution of your relationship; you’ll be glad you did!!! Likewise, you single crabs need to step out of your comfort zones and be willing to let a relationship develop. Don’t make excuses that you’re too busy; you know there’s no way work is more important that falling in love.

Leo- You could be feeling more amorous than you have in a while so let your partner know it. Don’t let yourself be inhibited by their shyness; they might need your leadership skills on this one. You single Lions could be just as happy making love to either an audience or an admirer, decide which one floats your boat and then be clear about it so no one gets hurt.

Virgo- If the relationship with your significant other has been complicated lately, then why don’t you hide out together in the bedroom for a day or so? After all, relationships rarely get to that “complicated” place if a committed couple is having a lot of sex…just sayin’. Meanwhile, you single Virgins should stop looking at love as something to be attained with definite rules to get there. Ever hear the song “Fooled Around and Fell in Love?”

Libra- No matter if you’re attached or single, how you feel about yourself right now is making all the difference. Creativity and Love are strongly related for you at this time, so if you’re feeling that your worldly endeavors are unsatisfying you could appear either mysteriously conflicted to a partner, or distant and unavailable to any potential suitors. Either way, for the present you should value an emotional connection over any material accomplishment, you’ll be much better off in the long run.

Scorpio- If you’re in a relationship then make sure you do something really special this week for Valentine’s and don’t cut any corners, your partner will love it! If you’re single then love right now could be about either something tangible or something spiritual. For instance, you could find out that someone whom you secretly admire is also quite smitten with you, or else you might feel inspired to create something artistic that will help you work out a mystery within yourself. Either way, Cupid’s arrow will hit something.

Sagittarius- If you’re in a relationship think carefully before bringing up the subject of living together. What you feel for a special person could turn into some unexpected animosity when they’re suddenly with you all the time and start to cramp your style regarding some personal habits you have no intention of changing. If you’re single stop having a fantasy you’ll meet someone if you really don’t make any effort to connect with new people (hiding in a group of friends for safety whenever you’re out doesn’t count).

Capricorn- If you’re in a relationship where is it going? Or, more importantly, where do you want it to go? Things may currently seem too chaotic to risk taking that next step with a serious partner, yet one of the tests of Love is if it can survive such challenges. You single Goats may not realize how all this catharsis you’ve been experiencing recently is actually making you quite a hottie. There’s more than one person out there who would be willing to make it all about you. Of course that’s a compliment, but be careful just the same.

Aquarius- Have you been paying enough attention to your partner lately? On the other hand, if you’ve been doting on them is that about their need or your insecurity? Try to see the person in your life now as a specific individual and not an abstract extension of yourself. You single Water Bearers may be promoting this conquering hero image, yet a person who could love you would like to be privy to the worried child you sleep alone with at night. Are you willing to be truly vulnerable without a disclaimer?

Pisces- You attached Fishes need to be careful not to put a partner on a pedestal. With illusory Neptune in your sign what you’re not seeing is that you may be dissing yourself rather than complimenting someone else. Single Fish will soon be in season, so be careful not too swim in shallow waters or automatically go after anything shiny that’s dangled in front of you. It’s entirely possible you could end up as a fillet for some predator who is only out for sport.

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.
