Mr. Saturn’s Stars #44 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/16-7/22, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/16-7/22, 2018

 

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

I will be using a term in this weeks horoscopes that some of you may not be familiar with, it’s called the Via Combusta or “Fiery Way” and it refers to an area in the chart that runs from 15 degrees Libra to 15 degrees Scorpio. As you can probably guess from the name, this stretch of the Zodiac is considered a no man’s land of sorts, where if things could possibly break bad they likely will, especially if it involves a transit of the Moon (which just happens to be there this week). In fact, among practitioners of Horary or “Predictive” Astrology, it is generally felt that if the Moon is transiting the Via Combusta it is usually best to simply trash the whole horoscope and try casting another one after the Moon has moved on.

I hope the inclusion of this interesting little tidbit will prove to be helpful, as some of you will end up being affected by this controversial transit over the coming week.

 

Aries- With Marsretrograde in your House of Dreams squaring Uranus in your House of Earnings, don’t plan on spending any money this week that you don’t actually have in your hand, not that you won’t eventually get it (by the time Venus aligns with Jupiter over the weekend you probably will) but cash flow problems could be a distinct problem at this time. Neptune retrograde in your House of What is Hidden and Pluto retrograde in your House of Career  will likely mean something you’ve been working on for a while could get delayed, which could actually turn out to be a blessing in disguise, so try not to lose your shit, okay?  The Lunar Arc through the Via Combusta might end up testing a friendship so try to walk away if someone just isn’t getting it, it’s their problem, not yours.

 

Taurus- As the Lunar Arc moves through your Houses of Work and Relationships it will be transiting the Via Combusta, so be careful in your interactions with co-workers, especially toward the end of the week when a Scorpio Moon conjuncts Jupiter; let any catty or snarky remarks slide, you’ll be glad you did, especially as Mars retrograde in your House of Career squares up with Uranus in your sign. Getting down in the mud with someone who’s just not worth it could very well have you biting off your nose to spite your face, so be careful. With Jupiter now direct in your House of Relationships and moving into alignment with Venus in your House of Romance, the weekend could end up dealing you a lucky encounter that will make up for any other crap that may happen this week. Keep your eyes open.

 

Gemini- Have you ever heard the phrase, “don’t shit where you eat?” It speaks directly to workplace romances so try to keep it in mind before you let anything happen between you and a co-worker, especially since the Lunar Arc will be transiting the Via Combusta and that can be trouble, particularly with Uranus behind the scenes in your chart squaring Mars retrograde. Make sure not to let a minor flirtation turn into an unhealthy attraction or, God forbid, the passion for an ill-fated affair just because you may be bored and need a little excitement. Neptune transiting your House of Public Image will make anything you do that’s even a little shady look infinitely worse, so don’t even think about being a home wrecker or sneaking around anywhere; people will hate you for it and you could get hurt.

 

Cancer- All you Cancer parents out there be on your toes. The Lunar Arc transiting the Via Combusta will be going through your Houses of Home and Children, where it will first square and then sextile Pluto in your House of Relationships. This could mean that you need to start treating your grown up baby like an adult if their age indicates that it’s time they started acting like one. Or perhaps you literally do have babies, if that’s the case then you may need to start laying down some rules (and penalties) if these little ones are needing some boundaries. Jupiter is also in your House of Children and as it aligns with Neptune in your House of Philosophy you will want to be both generous and helpful to your offspring, just make sure that when Jupiter aligns with Venus in Virgo over the weekend that you have not lost the farm due to your willingness to make everyday Christmas regardless if someone’s been good or not.

 

Leo- Try to be more sensitive around family members this week as the Lunar Arc transits the Via Combusta and your Houses of Communication and Home. Mars retrograde in your House of Relationships will be squaring Uranus in your House of Career, so if your frustrated for whatever reason at work try not to bring that anger back to the hacienda if you can. Particularly since Jupiter is also in your House of Home now and when that Via Combusta Moon hits the King of the Planets some real down and dirty exchanges could result. If you can manage to keep your frustration on the down low until Venus eventually advances through your House of Self Worth and aligns with Jupiter, then the charming side of you will be all anyone sees. Until then, use the Neptune transit through your House of Transformation to put up the best glamour you can.

 

Virgo- You try to be respectful, but if anyone violates your particular sense of decency then all bets are off, so just make sure that as the Lunar Arc transits the Via Combusta and your Houses of Self Worth and Communication that you don’t end up being an unwanted policeman in someone else’s district. Uranus in your House of Philosophy squaring off with Mars retrograde in your House of Routines could have you incensed at an unexpected mishap that you feel is the result of some unfairness either on the job or at home; it’s one thing to be annoyed, but please, try not to get emotional about it as you may end up making the situation worse instead of better. As Venus moves through your sign she will eventually align with Jupiter over the weekend, therefore, if you can keep your criticisms of a person or a situation within reasonable boundaries, you could find yourself the unexpected Master of Ceremonies aboard a happy ship sailing into next week.

 

Libra- Your natural sense of fairness could be challenged this week as the Lunar Arc traverses the Via Combusta that runs between your sign and your House of Self Worth. Jupiter is also in that House of Self Worth so try to remain patient if someone without a clue tries to act like they know it all. Uranus in your House of Transformation squaring Mars retrograde in your House of Creativity could mean that the Universe has sent you this buffoon as an unwitting teacher, so try not to shoot the messenger. Instead, use Venus moving through your House of Inner Realization as a meditation on patience as she aligns with Jupiter, then let the Goddess calm the savage beast, just like the maiden closing the jaws of the lion in the Tarot Card titled “Strength.”

 

Scorpio- Are you ready for an adventure? Specifically into the dark confines of your self where all the Scorpionic Mysteries reside? A word to the wise, it ain’t going to be like Harry Potter and the Basilisk, more like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the giant squid, just sayin’. As the Lunar Arc this week goes through the Via Combusta, it will pass over your horizon (otherwise known as your Rising Sign) and emerge into the light like a piece of abstract art emerging from your subconscious. Neptune in your House of Creativity should be right in time with this, especially if it turns out you’re into the art thing. Uranus in your House of Relationships squaring Mars retrograde in your House of Foundations will probably end up making your intimate encounters about as Freudian as they can get, as a result, be prepared for partners to be a little in awe of you, as few can dazzle others with their darker sides better than the Scorpion. Some may think this mysterious part of you that’s being exposed is sexy, but that sort will be a dime a dozen. With Jupiter in your sign now, choose to gravitate toward those who can appreciate your Mystical side; they’ll be the keepers.

 

Sagittarius- Who are you really? The answer provided by the Lunar Arc passing through the Via Combusta this week will probably surprise a few folks, as that stretch of Zodiac for you goes over the cusp between the House of Groups and the House of Confinement, or the face you let the world see as opposed to the face you only reveal when the Moon is Full and it’s the Witching time. You usually wear your mask well, but with Uranus in your House of Healing and Mars retrograde in your House of Communication, you may not be able to keep the hounds locked up now if someone crosses your path at the wrong time. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth might help to keep the beast in you at bay, but maybe whatever transpires will end up being about the victim’s lesson rather than the predator’s; with that said, anyone who messes with you now deserves whatever they get. Rrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!

 

Capricorn- This will likely be a testy week for you as Mars retrograde going through the sign of Aquarius and your House of Self Worth will be approaching an explosive square with Uranus in your House of Creativity. What others may be demanding of you now could turn out to be quite annoying, especially if you really need to be taking care of your own affairs. As Venus slowly moves into a lucky sextile with Jupiter in your House of Dreams, some of the demands being made of you now could inadvertently lead to the discovery of certain untapped resources within yourself that could turn out to be quite valuable. With Pluto and Saturn currently in your sign and both of them retrograde, it is a given that deep changes will be going on for you for a while, although occasionally you may get an unexpected break (like this week) and end up ahead of where you ordinarily would have been if you weren’t inconvenienced. The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.

 

Aquarius- With Mars retrograde in your sign this is probably not the time to be pushing forward with any new projects, but don’t let anyone try to tell you that. Uranus in your House of Symbolic Foundations will provide the ants in your pants, while Saturn retrograde behind the scenes will provide the frustration, all you need now is the proper illusion and you’ll be all set to make a wonderfully stupid mistake. Jupiter in your House of Career aligning with Neptune in your House of Self Worth could fit the bill, as their particular combination of ego and fog should have you over extending yourself in truly epic ways. Mercury inconjunct Pluto will have you wanting to get to the truth, though as the Moon transits the Via Combusta across your Mid-heaven you won’t want veracity as much as you want attention, so the week will likely end with a spectacle, let’s just hope it’s not you falling off the high-wire; although Venus aligning with Jupiter will act as a safety a net, so you should be okay in the end. Whew!!!

 

Pisces- Trust could be a big issue for you now as the Moon crosses the Via Combusta, which spans your Houses of Transformation and Philosophy respectively. Jupiter will be there too and as he aligns with Neptune in your sign it’s not that you’ll be suspicious of anyone, on the contrary, if anything you’ll be too trusting and that could lead to some real problems, especially if it involves other peoples money (or lack thereof). Mars retrograde in your House of Confinement will likely have you throwing caution to the wind, and as he squares Uranus in your House of Communication whatever you overlook now out of impatience will most certainly come back to bite you on the ass in the near future. Mercury inconjuncting Pluto as it approaches its station/retrograde phase could have you listening to the wrong people, therefore, try not to let someone who wants to purchase something of yours convince you it’ll be okay if they owe you for it.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #41 Weekly Horoscopes for 6/25-7/1, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 6/25- 7/1, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Before I commence with this week’s horoscopes, I would like to take a moment to suggest an idea for a new hash tag movement.

It’s usually my opinion that public discourse on matters affecting our society should remain civil, however, when you have a cabal of racist buffoons in the white house who believe it’s a good idea to separate children from their parents, then as far as I’m concerned all bets are off regarding respect or decency toward these monsters; call them what they are!

With that in mind here’s my hash tag idea;

If you take away the “T” you have “rump,” which the dictionary defines as “the hind quarters of an animal.”

Next you turn “rump” into an acronym;

Racist Unqualified Mendacious Putz

So you don’t have to look it up, mendacious means “lying” and putz is Yiddish slang for “dick”.

There you go, #Rump. What d’ya think? If y’all like it then you have my permission to spread it around!

 

Aries- With a Full Moon conjunct Saturn and 5 retrograde planets in your Houses of Career, Transformation, Dreams, and Hidden Obstacles, this will no doubt be a decidedly un-Aries week for you.  Add to this the fact that your ruling planet (Mars) will be going station/retrograde and moving back toward a square with explosive Uranus, and the stage could be all set for you to lose your shit if you don’t watch out! Both Jupiter and Neptune retrograde could provide you with the Zen you need, but that will only be if you can tune out Mercury in Cancer who’ll be trying to rile you up into an emotional, self-righteous frenzy like an ignorant trump supporter. Try to remember the old Taoist proverb, “Strength bides its time, while weakness feels a need to act.”

 

Taurus- A Full Moon conjunct Saturn in your House of Philosophy would make this an ideal week to re-examine whatever isn’t currently working in your life. Mars going retrograde this week in your House of Career could put a damper on a moonlighting venture that was just starting to look like it was gaining some traction, although with Uranus in your sign and aligning with both the Moon and Saturn don’t assume that a setback will be a failure; perhaps you are being re-routed to the back door of success? Both Jupiter and Neptune retrograde in your Houses of Relationships and Dreams respectively could bring back someone from the past who is now in a position to help you negotiate whatever obstacles you may now face; keep the faith!

 

Gemini- The time has come for you to recapitulate a strategy you thought was going to work because, quite frankly, no one is buying it. Gemini is a sign that’s notorious for being shady but don’t believe for one second that repeating something over and over is convincing anybody. Mercury will be moving from emotional Cancer into righteous Leo this week, and there he’ll be confronted by both Mars retrograde and recalcitrant Uranus, who will each have no problem yelling “bullshit” in your face if that’s what you’re peddling! Five retrograde planets during the week may also serve to bring up some additional shit from the past that you probably shouldn’t have said either, thus making this week’s lesson, “tell the truth, it’s the easiest thing to remember.”

 

Cancer- This week’s full Moon will be in your House of Relationships conjunct with authoritative Saturn and aligning with Uranus, the planet of the unexpected. Whatever you thought was going to happen at work or in an extracurricular activity you’re involved with, get ready for a surprise! While things haven’t been changing fast enough for you, you’ve been changing at lightning speed so maybe the time has come for you to catch up with the success you’ve been convinced has eluded you! Jupiter retrograde in your House of Creativity and Neptune retrograde in your House of Philosophy should help you with changing a hidden, insecure attitude that has never served you well so that you can turn an overly polite, self deprecating style of communication into a more confident approach that smacks of the leadership and honor that is at the core of your character. You have brains and talent, don’t be shy, flaunt them!

 

Leo- You are a noble sign so there is a definite limit as to how much crap you can take before you roar back! The sun behind the scenes in sensitive Cancer opposing the Full Moon conjunct with Saturn in your Hose of Work will find you at the end of your rope in a relationship with either a coworker, a boss, or even the entire company you’re employed by. Mars going retrograde in your House of Relationships will have you rethinking your interactions with others over the next couple of months and realizing how isolating yourself from the things that you don’t like has only served to secure you a position holding the shit end of the stick. If you are offended by the way things are then respect your self and either speak up to authority or find a new environment that is more in alignment with your core beliefs.

 

Virgo- If you don’t like what you see going on around you then become the change! With the Sun in sensitive Cancer transiting through your House of Groups and opposing a Full Moon conjunct Saturn in your House of Creativity, turn what’s bothering you into a source of innovation rather than letting it trap you into a sense of sadness or hopelessness. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Communication aligning with Neptune retrograde in your House of relationships would encourage you to share your feelings about any unfairness or injustice you see, there may be more like minded people out there than you might think who will find your expressions inspiring. Mars going retrograde in your House of Work and squaring Uranus in your House of Philosophy could very well be about you getting involved in some form of activism, be willing to upset the apple cart for what you feel is just and honorable.

 

Libra- With Mars going retrograde in your House of Creativity the next couple of months will likely be about reviewing a project you’re involved with and making whatever changes are necessary for it to become the success you have envisioned. On a grander stage, the Full Moon conjunct Saturn in your House of Foundations aligning with Uranus in your House of Transformation is about reading the writing on the wall and getting ahead of the curve in regards to implementing whatever changes have become necessary in regards to your long term growth. You have been a work in progress for a while now and the pieces are pretty much in place for you to start letting the world know you’re there. Jupiter has been retrograde in your House of Earnings for a while and once it goes direct next month expect some well deserved rewards for what you have been working on for the last year to start to appear like the first buds of a magnificent Spring.

 

Scorpio- With Jupiter in your sign now you are feeling very independent, perhaps even like a law unto yourself, yet with the Full Moon meeting up with Saturn in your House of Communications it may be time for you to answer to a greater power, namely responsibility. The Sun passing through your House of Philosophy will have you contemplating something greater than simply your own desires, while Uranus in your House of Relationships may bring some unexpected circumstances your way whereby if you don’t step up someone you care about is really going to be in a pickle. What to do? Your sign rules both saints and sinners so sacrifice is not foreign to you. As a result, Neptune in your House of Creativity will likely help you to choose the highroad and find both innovative and compassionate solutions to whatever those around you may need.

 

Sagittarius- Mars will be going station/retrograde in your House of Communications this week, meaning that if you haven’t been annoyed enough to openly complain about something that’s been bothering you then get ready for that person or situation to get worse as the retrograde of the warrior planet will bring it back into a loose square with volatile Uranus. The Full Moon conjunct Saturn in your House of Self Worth will also be aligning with Uranus, so don’t think ignoring a bully will work, you’ll need to change what they expect of you and a good insult or well documented complaint may work wonders for both the situation and your self esteem. The Sun in sensitive Cancer will be in your House of Transformation opposing the Full Moon and Saturn, so if it turns out you feel guilty about confronting anyone look at it this way, the individual in question has no problem devaluing you as a matter of sport so for you to strike back is effectively an act of self love, therefore, do you and don’t feel guilty.

 

Capricorn- As of late no one has had any problem making demands on your time and energy, however, with this weeks Full Moon conjunct Saturn in your sign and both of them aligning nicely with Uranus in your House of Creativity, what you need to be thinking about now is not what someone else needs, but what do you need? Mars going station/retrograde in your House of Self Worth would suggest that taking time for yourself may garner a dissatisfied response from some quarters, but how many of these squeaky wheels should be doing something for themselves for a change instead of depending on you? Jupiter retrograde in your House of Dreams aligning with Neptune retrograde in your House of Communication would suggest killing with kindness anyone who is taking advantage of you; firstly because it’s more humane, but mostly because these passive/aggressive wimps won’t know how to deal with it.

 

Aquarius- With Mars going station/retrograde this week in your sign it would probably be a good idea to slow your roll, especially with the Full Moon conjuncting Saturn in your House of Confinement and aligning with Uranus in your house of Symbolic Foundations. Allow for the unexpected, which also means let go of your control issues. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career aligning with Neptune in your house of Self Worth could present a problem with you prioritizing what’s important, as your tendency is to make your issues paramount and everyone else’s secondary. In the world of Aquarius such hubris may be true, but the real world has a way of enveloping our illusions and reminding us we are nothing much more than a fish in a fish bowl. The Sun in sensitive Cancer and your House of Work could have you attaching emotional significance to something that’s nothing more than business. Try not to take things personally and you might just get through a difficult situation and manage to hustle another day.

 

Pisces- Mars going station/retrograde in your House of confinement could find you wondering what the world wants from you and worrying if you can manage to provide whatever that may be. Saturn conjunct the Full Moon in your House of Dreams with both of them aligning with Uranus in your house of Communication could refer to some mixed news that will seem both positive and negative at the same time. If you’re not getting what you want from a situation, don’t panic, it doesn’t mean you won’t get something useful out of it eventually. Let Jupiter in your house of Philosophy working with Neptune in your sign help you to find the silver lining in this seemingly dark cloud. If work has been either stressful or burdensome as of late, don’t expect it to get any better as Mercury in your House of Routines pulls into a square with Uranus in your House of Communication. The boss doesn’t care what you think, so just take home your pay and realize you won’t be there forever.

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 Special Edition; Tarot/Haiku Interlude 6/11-6/17, 2018

Mr. Saturn’s Stars Special Edition

 

For the week of 6/11-6/17, 2018

 

 Tarot/ Haiku Interlude

 Hi kids!!! This week Mrs. Saturn and I will be on vacation so there will be no Horoscopes. However, in keeping with the theme of vacationing, I decided it would be a good idea if I presented something special so that all of you out there could also have a little fun this week.

What I came up with involved pulling one Tarot Card for each sign as sort of a talisman for the week. Below is a list showing the card that was selected for each sign along with an accompanying Haiku intended as a comment/interpretation.

I hope this gets your gray matter (as well as your Spirit) going and I’ll see you all next week with the 40thinstallment of Mr. Saturn’s Stars Horoscopes.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #39 Weekly Horoscopes for 6/4-6/10, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 6/4-6/10, 2018

 

  “I’d sooner, except the penalties, kill a man than a hawk;

but the great redtail

Had nothing left but unable misery

From the bone too shattered for mending, the wing that

Trailed under his talons when

he moved…..

 

  …I gave him the lead gift in the twilight.

What fell was relaxed, Owl-downy, soft feminine feathers; but

what

Soared: the fierce rush: the night-herons by the flooded river

cried fear at its rising

Before it was quite unsheathed from reality.”

 

-Robinson Jeffers

 

 

 Aries- You are standing on a precipice and looking into the distance at where you’d like to be, however, since you’re not there yet how are you dealing with where you are now? Part of the problem might be that you’ve been misinterpreting delays in your forward progress as your goal receding further away, instead of realizing it is more a matter of the speed of your approach. In other words, if a town is a hundred miles away the distance doesn’t change no matter how fast or slow the train goes. With Pluto retrograde in your House of Career and Jupiter retrograde in your House of Transformation, the treasure map you started following at the beginning of the year is still valid. What’s going on now is that when one embarks upon the actual trail to his or her dreams it is no longer about hoping or fantasizing, but rather a matter of dealing with the sorts of illusions that inevitably arise between theory and practice; a dialogue that is playing out now between The Sun and Mercury in your House of Logical Thinking and Neptune in your House of Confinement and Obstacles. As an old Pop Song used to advise, “Just hold on loosely/ But don’t let go/ If you cling too tightly/ You’re gonna lose control.”

 

Taurus- As the attainment of a goal gets closer you could be starting to see how the journey is no longer about what you’re trying to manifest, but rather about how you’ve transformed yourself by becoming what you needed to be in order to succeed. Venus at the bottom of your chart and Pluto at the top would further indicate that this transformation was as much driven by a newfound sense of self-love as by any need for control or material acquisition. The Lunar Arc this week travels through your Houses of Public Image and Dreams where it will then go around to the back door and enter into your sign, meaning that You are on the verge of realizing that you have managed to find yourself by surrendering yourself; congratulations and Namaste!

 

Gemini- You have no idea how people are really seeing you now, which could find you accused of being either a blithering idiot or an arrogant S.O.B. Likewise, you could also end up overestimating yourself, or else be driven to an act of desperation by fearing that you aren’t good enough for a particular person or situation. Oh, the rollercoaster ride of being a Gemini! As Venus transits through the nurturing sign of Cancer and your House of Self Worth to come into an opposition to Pluto, you could also decide to escape your confusion by instead becoming immersed in someone else’s problems. This may satisfy a desire you have to be needed but be careful, someone who is willing to dump on you might very well also have no problem blaming you if  your help doesn’t fix his or her life. In short, try to stay on the down low this week and keep it simple; don’t give any sh*t or take any wooden nickels.

 

Cancer- If the week starts out looking like it’s going to be a re-enactment of the Alamo try to remember not to sweat the small stuff (and it’s all small stuff). Over the last few months some shit has certainly hit the fan, but what you may be overlooking is that you are no longer the same person that drew said shit to yourself. Instead, you have become a Spiritual Warrior/Jedi-Ninja Badass who has managed to find a solution for everything the Universe has thrown at you. Notice as well who is still standing there beside you as the dust from this tragic year begins to settle. If you have love and a little luck then you always stand a chance, no matter what comes down the pike. Remember as well that luck can sometimes come to us in the form of a test, like when the Greek Gods would disguise themselves as unfortunates and then reward those who offered them hospitality and punish those who didn’t. In other words, don’t stop being the good person you are and don’t believe “nice guys finish last.” As the song goes, “If you have a friend on whom you think/ You can rely/ You are a lucky man!/ If you’ve found the reason to live on and/ Not to die/ You are a lucky man!”

 

Leo- With Pluto retrograde in your House of Work and Jupiter retrograde in your House of Foundations, you may be reflecting on your current career status and thinking perhaps you’ve made a wrong turn somewhere. Venus behind the scenes opposing Pluto may be adding to this sense of melancholy, but don’t cue up “Is that All There Is?” just yet. The Sun and Mercury in your House of Dreams could offer up a little inspiration if you’re willing to try, but Neptune in your House of Transformation could also offer up a little hopelessness if you’re willing to indulge in a pity party. Uranus crossing your House of Career would indicate a change is definitely coming, while at the same time Saturn retrograde in your House of Work will be trying to remind you how you arrived where you currently are. So, if you don’t want the new boss to be the same as the old boss, just make sure that you’re starting “TO DO” some things differently to get a different result. Get it? Got it? Good.

 

Virgo- It’s time to make a choice. Doing something just because someone said you can’t may be a good way to say f*ck you, but it is not a recipe for finding your own brand of happiness. Likewise, finding fault with everything will eventually leave you all by yourself with nothing to do. Remember in The Matrix when Smith had Neo in a choke hold on the train tracks and as the train approached Smith commented that the train whistle was “the sound of inevitability…”? Well, for you that train is embodied now by Pluto as it opposes Venus in your House of Dreams and likewise aligns with Jupiter in your House of Communication and Neptune in your House of Partnerships. Without a destination in life all we’ll ever have is a house full of travel brochures laying all over the place. Pick a destination, buy a ticket, take the ride, you’ll have no one to blame or rebel against except yourself. Can you handle that much responsibility? Can you handle that much happiness?

 

Libra- If you’re feeling like a “Rider on the Storm,” don’t despair, just continue driving as carefully as you can through the deluge and keep those high beams on. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Self Worth and Pluto retrograde in your House of Symbolic Foundations represent the distance you’ve traveled and the experience you’ve gained, so with each of these planets in esoteric aspect to the Sun and Mercury in your House of Philosophy, expect some new possibilities to crop up like a rainbow over the drenched landscape. The Lunar Arc this week will travel from your House of Creativity through your Houses of Work, Partnerships, and Transformation, meaning that along with these new possibilities just mentioned you can also expect some new challenges as well, but don’t worry, “Intrepid Traveler,” a wise journeyman like you should be able to come up with some novel solutions from the depths of your well earned wisdom and understanding.

 

Scorpio- A word used to describe something is not the thing itself, which Aleister Crowley pointed out in “Magick in Theory and Practice” when he commented that the letters d-o-g are not an actual dog. With this in mind, it will be very important for you in the coming week to clearly determine the difference between what you think is real and what actually exists. While there are certainly an infinite number of possibilities in the universe, actualities eliminate just about all of them as soon as one makes the choice to eat a veggie burger or ride the subway. Likewise, making additional choices creates myriad new possibilities; therefore, realize that the best way to change your reality is to act on any intention you have about what you’d like to do with it. With the Sun transiting now through your House of Death and Transformation, this is a time when you can clearly see things for what they are, just make sure you’re actually doing something with this info; “Break on Through to the Other Side!”

 

Sagittarius- If you want either an unhappy relationship or an unsatisfying situation to change, it’s important to first realize how you feel you benefit by these circumstances being as they are. Sometimes we allow others to use us because it makes us feel needed. Other times we use others because it makes us feel important, or else we believe we are owed something. Either way, nothing can or will change for the better until you re-evaluate whatever the reward is you think you’re getting that justifies being unhappy. With the Sun and Mercury in your House of Relationships, Pluto retrograde in your House of Self Worth, and Jupiter retrograde behind the scenes, how you think about yourself right now is going to be a strong determinant in how you deal with others, but even more importantly, it’s also going to reveal why they deal with you the way they do. As the Beatles once sang, “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”

 

Capricorn- Responsibilities at work or in a project you’re involved with could increase right now, although before agreeing to expend any more of your time and energy you should first examine the situation and see if more of an effort on your part is really the solution. In other words, make sure that your need to be all things to all people hasn’t become an inappropriate matter of pride that could very well allow some lazy ass to benefit at your expense. I am pointing this out because a Mars/Uranus square in your Houses of Self Worth and Creativity would indicate that overworking yourself at this time could end up being both frustrating and stressful, especially if some of your personal priorities have to be shifted in order to accommodate whatever is being demanded from you. Saturn retrograde is also in your House of Self Worth and as it trines Uranus make sure you remember how unhappy you were the last time you shelved your dreams to take care of something that was ultimately another’s responsibility…  “I remember when the darkness doubled, and lightning struck itself…”

 

Aquarius- With the Sun and Gemini passing through your House of Creativity and entering into an esoteric alignment with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career and Pluto retrograde behind the scenes, you need to be careful now not to allow yourself to get caught up in other peoples excitement, especially if it plays to your need to be loved and admired in exchange for promising something you just won’t be able to deliver. Neptune in your House of Self Worth could contribute to such hubris if you let it, so try to be vigilant and don’t allow yourself to get talked into trying to be superman. Ego or pride can be far more dangerous than kryptonite, so beware. In the meantime, a Pluto/Venus opposition squared by the Moon in Aries midweek could find you in hot water at work if you don’t watch your mouth with a fellow employee, or even the boss. Uranus having just entered your House of Symbolic Foundations to square Mars in your sign may have you feeling you oats, just don’t think you’re more of a thoroughbred than you are or you could end up as dog food before you know it.

 

Pisces- If you have been letting your responsibilities slide either at work or on the home front, you could get a rude awakening as circumstances suddenly take an inconvenient or even downright embarrassing turn. This could come in the form of an unexpected attack from someone you didn’t even realize was mad as Uranus in your House of Communication squares Mars behind the scenes. How could they feel this way, you’ll think to yourself as they scream, “how could you do this to me?” Of course you will be able to apologize your way out of this due to the fact that Jupiter retrograde aligning with Neptune will help them to remember that you are really nice even if you’re more than a little flakey. On the other hand, with Saturn retrograde squaring an Aries Moon in the middle of the week, you better remember to make a note on your “to do” list to seriously work on whatever it was that may have upset someone, or else you may have to hire a full-time bodyguard; just saying.

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.

Special Uranus Entering Taurus Edition

 

 My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.”

-Rumi

 

Hi kids!!! Are you ready for something completely unexpected? Well buckle your seat belts because Uranus is changing his Astrological base of operations this week for the first time in approximately 8 years! Let’s take a look at what that might mean for each of the 12 Zodiac Signs for the rest of the coming year.

 

An Overview of Uranus in Taurus

 It takes approximately 84 years for Uranus to travel around the entire Zodiac, meaning that it will spend roughly 7 years transiting through each sign. The last time that Uranus was in the sign of Taurus was during the period between June 7, 1934 and May 15, 1942, at which time the world witnessed the rise of fascism in Europe that eventually lead to the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939.

In looking back, the volatility of the events that occurred during the last time Uranus was in Taurus makes perfect sense when one considers that Taurus is a Fixed Earth sign usually associated with the status quo, while Uranus is a planet whose archetypal symbolism is commonly linked to resistance, rebellion, revolution, and the unexpected. In other words, Uranus entering Taurus would be a perfect example of an irresistible force meeting an immovable object. With this in mind, it can only make one shudder to contemplate the current World situation with such a volatile planet returning once again to such a complacent sign. For example, there are the ongoing tensions between Syria, Iran, and Israel in the Middle East, the chest thumping between North Korea and the U.S. involving the former country’s Nuclear Weapons Program, as well as the impending Constitutional Crisis facing us here in the U.S. as our current President and his associates face the possibility of criminal charges. And if all of that weren’t enough, there is also the situation here at home where the policies of our government seem to be driven by the exact same sort of dark xenophobia, racism, sexism, and fascism, that existed in Nazi Germany during the 1930’s when Uranus was last in Taurus.  If we like to think of ourselves as the leading country of the world, exactly where will be leading the rest of the globe once Uranus starts to work its inevitable Chaos Magick on us all?

Uranus as an Archetype

 Because Uranus predominantly represents that which is unexpected and ultimately uncontrollable, it is often hard to determine exactly how the affects of this volatile planet will be felt.

In my experience Uranus usually provides whatever is necessary to shock us out of our complacency. For instance, if you’re naturally an adventurous person Uranus may bring about disastrous results to your usual carefree actions as a way of teaching you to be more responsible (if that seems contradictory then welcome to the world of Uranus). On the other hand, if you’re an overly cautious person then Uranus may instead throw a wrench in the works that will force you to improvise in the face of unforeseen circumstances.

As an archetype Uranus represents the opposite of the control and organization usually associated with Saturn. It is therefore interesting to note that as Uranus enters the sign of Taurus it will be approaching a positive alignment with Saturn, which is currently retrograde in the sign of Capricorn. This alignment will find both of these planets in stable Earth Signs (Taurus and Capricorn) and though their aspect to one another will not be exact at this time, they will come within 1 degree of each other as Saturn approaches its station/direct period and Uranus approaches a station/retrograde. It is my opinion that during this coming summer all of us to some degree or other will see our comfort zones forcibly expanded and, as a result, both our anxiety and creativity levels will probably end up rising simultaneously. Effectively this represents the cauldron of evolution at its spiciest, so get ready for your reality to be served up piping hot, whether you like it or not.

How Will Uranus in Taurus Affect Each Sign in 2018?

 During 2018 Uranus will be in the sign of Taurus from May 15 to November 6 before it passes back into the Sign of Aries, where it will remain until March 6 of 2019. Even though it is just a few days short of 6 months, the initial transit of Uranus into Taurus in 2018 will nevertheless be a valuable harbinger of what we can look forward to as the planet of the unexpected continues its engagement with us over the next 8 years.

 

Aries- The entrance of Uranus into your House of Self Worth will signal the start of an inner revolution that could either lead you forward to maturity and success, or back into the rebellious follies of youth where your insecurities get dressed up as a disdain for things you only pretend not to care about. A lot of how this will play out will no doubt have to do with Saturn’s position in your House of Career and Public Image, which will likely present you with both the lessons and punishments of authority. How you negotiate this whole process will depend to a great extent on whether you’re looking at it from the position of an adult or a smart-ass kid: either way it’s up to you. Money could also come quite unexpectedly at this time, just make sure that you invest a decent amount of whatever windfalls may arrive rather than just spending it all like a drunken sailor.

 

Taurus- Not only will Uranus enter your sign this week but there will also be a New Moon in Taurus as well, meaning that if anybody is talking about you they’re also “Talkin’ about a Revolution” (although more along the lines of a revolution in style rather than Concord Green or The Bastille).  At first this revolution stuff might feel awkward because you really are a peaceful soul who just wants everyone to feel safe and comfortable, however, with Uranus acting like a red flag that’s meant to turn the motherly cow in you into a raging bull ready to charge ahead, you might end up scaring not only yourself but others as well. Moving to a far off place could also be a distinct possibility, which very well might be healthy in the long run as long you don’t totally abandon all caution to the wind. In other words, don’t get too carried away by the crowd yelling , “Ole’’, only to find out that they weren’t rooting for the bull but the matador and you’re stuck….ouch!

 

Gemini- Uranus will be slipping behind the scenes in your chart when it enters into Taurus, which could turn out to be either an angel or a devil whispering in your ear depending on what your anxiety level is at that particular moment. Saturn will be in your House of Transformation at the same time, meaning a review of your control and/or boundary issues will likely be going on that could put you on a real emotional roller coaster as you struggle with how to play with the other children so that everyone has fun and not just you or them. Joint finances with a partner could also become an issue, with one or both of you possibly experiencing a change of income. Remember, it’s easy to think of a Uranian shock as threatening until you see what previously unknown super powers it brings out in you. Surprise!!!

 

Cancer- When Uranus moves into Taurus it will be entering your House of Groups and Friends, which could signal both sudden endings and beginnings as some familiar people unexpectedly leave your life and new ones arrive to take their place. Saturn will also be in your House of Partnerships at this time, so even though some of these departures may leave you feeling either sad or wronged, the truth is that in order to insure your long-term positive growth all of these people who disappeared had to go in order for more beneficial individuals to enter your life. The House in your chart where Uranus will be entering during its stint in Taurus is also sometimes referred to as the House of Dreams, so realize as well that if you’re willing to let go of what no longer works in your life you could inadvertently be setting the stage for some long held fantasies to finally come true. What may have seemed familiar and comfortable in the past might actually have turned into what is blocking some real luck from finding you now.

 

Leo- If you haven’t noticed the writing on the wall yet then Uranus entering your House of Career may just have to get your ass fired or have the company you work for go out of business so that you’ll be motivated to find a better situation. I know it’s a shock, but that’s how Uranus rolls and with Saturn backing him up from your House of Work you need to understand you were not long for this situation anyway. It may have once filled a need, but now Uranus is going to show you some brand new needs you didn’t even realize you had! This is called evolution and with growth comes growing pains, so get ready to deal with something you have previously avoided like it was a disease, namely responsibility. Maybe Uranus is ripping you from your comfortable womb so that you can be born into your true destiny? After all, if you’ve failed at settling for being unsuccessful then there’s nothing for you to lose, so pay the ticket and take the ride. You’re off to see the Wizard!

 

Virgo- Jelaluddin Rumi (the author of this weeks quote for Mr. Saturn #36) was a successful scholar until he met the wandering Dervish Shams of Tabriz, whereby he had his head and heart turned around and ended up becoming perhaps the World’s greatest Mystical Poet. I tell you this because when Uranus enters Taurus it will be moving into your House of Philosophy (and aligning with Saturn in your House of Creativity) where it will perhaps do for you what Shams did for Rumi. Of course there’s a flip side to this, while Rumi left what he thought were his responsibilities behind in order to follow his new love, he nevertheless found out quickly enough that the freedom Shams was offering required him to be even more responsible because now he was harmonizing with the whole Universe and not just his own little ego and the demands of others. In other words, Uranus will be opening up your world, are you ready for the experience and, no doubt, the extra work and responsibility?

 

Libra- From where do our thoughts originate?We each experience consciousness, but what is it? Certainly our intuition and inspiration are not just from the fleshy pulp inside our heads? Uranus will be entering your House of Death and Transformation this week, so expect that whatever you thought about life leading up to this moment will not be the same afterwards. The House of Transformation represents our individual link to the regenerative energy of the Universe, a power that is also at the root of money, sex, and creativity. Therefore, have the courage to embrace whatever you feel you need to do. As long as you are honest and honor the process you have embarked upon, you and yours will manage to get whatever you need, you just won’t know how or when until you do. This could be quite harrowing, but there you have it. Uranus is a Cosmic Joker for sure, but for this part of your life he’ll be laughing with you, not at you. If you manage not to be frightened of the unknown, you could be quite successful.

 

Scorpio- As Uranus enters your House of Partnerships and aligns with Saturn in your House of Communication, expect the way you usually deal with people to be entirely transformed. Because Uranus has an uncanny way of getting in our faces, at the start of this transit it may seem as though your normal boundaries are being assaulted. At first this may surprise you, but whatever your natural reaction may be, just let it happen and then make careful note of the results. One of the things you may discover is how much you inadvertently acquiesce to the will of others (this may be especially true with family members). Uranus’s M.O. is to put us in situations where we are forced to be ourselves because nothing else will work. Of course there is also the possibility that certain relationships may end during this period, maybe even some you thought were rock solid. If that’s turns out to be the case, perhaps what you mistook for solidity was really just the other person’s inflexible expectations about who you should be regardless of how you may feel about it. In short, get ready to meet some new friends (and lovers) who will like you for who you are and not for what you can do for them.

 

Sagittarius- Uranus will be entering your House of Work so get ready for some big changes on the job front. There are so many things wrong there right now that it’s hard to say which straw will be the one that breaks the camel’s back. Saturn is in your House of Self Worth, so at the risk of stating the obvious I would probably venture to say you’re most likely not getting paid anywhere near what you’re worth. This is more than a little bit your fault, mostly because you’re overqualified for where you are and all the underachievers who surround you know that all they have to do is play stupid and you’ll fix whatever it is. Accept that the time has come to be driven from your comfort zone in the same way that babies have to be born, simply because there is no longer any space left for growth. Uranus is in good aspect to Saturn now, so make sure you are paying special attention to all the insights that are starting to flit through your head like butterflies. Once upon a time they were caterpillars just like you.

 

Capricorn- Sometimes creating something can be a leisurely affair, but more often than not our creativity ends up being stimulated by unexpected circumstances whose primary purpose is to move us along on our evolutionary path. With Uranus transiting through your House of Creativity you will likely be bombarded by, discover, and even at times trip over more ideas and insights than you can likely imagine at this point, which just means life will probably be more hectic and stimulating than you probably think you can handle. Well don’t you believe it! We only use a fraction of our consciousness in our daily life and if we can increase that by merely another fraction we’d be entering into the realm of Saints and Geniuses. Are you ready to be part of that select group? Are you ready for something completely different? As the Monty Python Boys used to say, “No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!!!” No one expects their enlightenment either until one day they realize that it’s been inside them all along.

 

Aquarius- As Uranus enters into the lowest area of your chart, (otherwise known as the House of Symbolic Foundations) get ready for your world to start spinning around like a pack of first graders playing musical chairs after being fed too much sugar. There’ll be pushing and giggling, maybe one of them will even stumble, and then it will all be fun and games until someone pokes out an eye. Of course if there’s a responsible teacher present it doesn’t have to play out that way, which is precisely the role Mr. Saturn will play as he observes through the door like the Principal passing by out in the hallway. I have used this grade school metaphor because the unexpected qualities associated with Uranus can make us all feel like children trapped in a mysterious and frightening world where no one knows what will happen next. Keep in mind though that Uranus is the ruler of your sign, so if there’s anyone who can roll with the unexpected it’s you Aquarian folk, especially since you inflict the rest of us with your natural Uranian presences as often as you can get away with it. Still, don’t be surprised by anything that may happen now, up to and including a cross country move, a complete career change, or even an unexpected divorce or marriage as Uranus stampedes through your life like a herd of cattle.

 

Pisces- We are all limited by what we think until something happens that requires us to use a new part of our brain. Some people would call this process living a creative or even a mystical life, while others might diagnose such a frame of mind as being delusional or even insane. Depending on what you believe, here comes Uranus entering into your House of Thinking and Ideas where you’re about to experience first hand what Alice felt as she tumbled down the rabbit hole. Up will be down and left will be right and things you’ve never seen before will suddenly seem eerily familiar as your true self emerges out of a mundane world of limited opinions and into a Universe of true knowledge and experience. During this time Saturn will be passing through your House of Groups and Friends, so as this strange trip continues you will discover the usefulness of your uniqueness and the practicality of your mistakes. And of course, things will just keep getting curiouser and curiouser.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #33 Weekly Horoscopes for 4/23-4/29, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 4/23-4/29, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! Glad to have you back.

 

“I do not know which to prefer,

The beauty of inflections

Or the beauty of innuendoes,

The blackbird whistling

Or just after. “

-Wallace Stevens

 

Aries- This week will no doubt begin with you feeling quite impatient as Mercury in your sign enters into a square with Saturn retrograde in your House of Career. Before you indulge your frustration first ask yourself a simple question, are you annoyed because you won’t get what you want, or are you just ticked off because you’re not getting it right now? Pluto retrograde is also traveling through your House of Career, where it is conjunct with Mars and aligning with Jupiter retrograde, a further indication that while things are certainly percolating any future accomplishments are likely on a slow simmer rather than a high boil for now. The Full Moon in Scorpio over the weekend will be in your House of Legacies where it will also combine with Mr. Saturn in your House of Career, meaning you need to realize what’s meant to be yours will be yours and learning to be patient with that understanding is called “confidence.”

 

Taurus- As the Sun in your sign approaches a strong elementary alignment with Saturn retrograde in your House of Philosophy, the time is coming for you to commit to a serious course of action in either a business or romantic partnership. This is further supported by the fact that both Mars and Pluto, which are also in your House of Philosophy, are aligning with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Partnerships, meaning that the ultimate purpose of this association is for you to grow significantly beyond what you can currently accomplish on your own.As a result, don’t try to assess the possible future rewards of any commitment you make now, especially since Neptune in your House of Dreams would indicate that you really won’t know what you’ll actually need from a commitment until you make it. Think of The Fool of the Tarot as he starts the journey of the Major Arcana by walking off a cliff; only after that can he come to realize his inner Magician and Priestess. Comprende?

 

Gemini- The misconception about a tidal wave is that it happens suddenly with no advance indication, when in actuality the initial disturbance occurs deep in the ocean long before the fact and then slowly builds momentum under the surface until its force becomes overwhelming. There is a metaphor here if you look closely and it could serve to explain a change this week at work that might seem like a complete surprise when it happens. At the end of the week The Sun behind the scenes will light up a Scorpio Moon in your House of Work to reveal who has been doing what on the job as well as who hasn’t been doing shit. Leading up to that Mars and Pluto aligning with Jupiter will bring your efforts up for review, which will happen because someone who should have kept their mouth shut doesn’t and their foot (as well as yours) should fit quite nicely in their pie hole. And justice for all… Amen!!!

 

Cancer- The Sun/Full Moon axis that concludes the week will occur for you in the Houses of Creativity and Dreams. If you have been working toward something meaningful in either your personal or professional life you could see a major break through now, though not necessarily a conclusion just yet. Leading up to this Mercury in your House of Career will Square Saturn in your House of Partnerships (and open enemies) meaning someone else’s faux pas could end up opening an unexpected door for you. Next a Pluto and Mars combo aligns with Jupiter retrograde (also in your House of Creativity) so you should have no problem knowing exactly what to do with any advantage you’ve been given. By the time the Full Moon does occur it will be aligning with Saturn retrograde back in your House of Partnership and Enemies, meaning that the joke will be on whoever underestimated your capabilities. Mess with the best you die like the rest.

 

Leo- Viva La Revolucion!  Mercury in the rebellious sign of Aries and your House of Philosophy is squaring authoritarian Saturn in your House of Work…Holy Jimmy Hoffa Batman!!! You’re ready to take on the boss, the company, and anyone else who tries to peddle injustice. Pluto aligning with Jupiter would speak to this being a long suffering situation, which is undoubtedly why you’re willing to stand up. When charming Venus enters social Gemini mid-week you should be able to gain some support for your cause, just remember to keep it light, after all no one likes a righteous rant. Think of Colbert mocking Rump and you’ll have the right sort of approach to an affective revolutionary philosophy.

 

Virgo- It is said that if partners agree on everything then one of them is redundant. Mercury in Aries squaring Saturn in your House of Creativity would mean that you’re probably going to have to push for what you want in a partnership, although not like you’ve done in the past when you didn’t get your way. This time with Pluto and Mars in Capricorn aligning with Jupiter in your House of Communication it’s won’t be necessary for you to get loud (and then apologize) instead you must be absolutely committed to your vision. And it doesn’t have to be a perfect vision (the other person’s certainly isn’t) it just has to be fair and equitable for everyone involved. The Full Moon in Scorpio to end the week will be aligning with Saturn, so if you can keep your cool (Venus entering Gemini mid-week should help with that) and remember to “talk softly but carry a big stick,” y’all should be fine.

 

Libra- Even though nothing seems to be changing much, don’t let yourself fall into the mindset of “same shit, different day.” The foundations you are establishing now are being constructed from the inside out, meaning that your circumstances cannot meaningfully change until you do and if you think back to where you were 6 months ago you have changed quite a bit. So stop worrying, things will be looking different before you know it. With Saturn, Mars, and Pluto all in your House of Symbolic Foundations, Saturn squaring Mercury and the other two working positively with Jupiter retrograde, the tumblers are slowly but surely coming into alignment to unlock you from the inertia you’ve been feeling trapped in. The Sun transiting your House of Transformation should also be of help here as it lights up a Full Scorpio Moon over the weekend in your House of Self Worth.  Your stock should be rising sooner than you think and you could be feeling “Born Again,” though hopefully not in the evangelical sense….lol!!

 

Scorpio- You are very much a creature of routine so therefore you also have more than a few control issues. Mercury in your House of Daily Activities squaring Saturn this week could represent some demands being put on you that will take you out of your usual groove. Jupiter retrograde in your sign aligning with Mars and Pluto will likely see you putting the pedal to the metal to overcome any such disturbances in your well ordered universe and you will likely succeed, but at what cost? Make sure you take some time to rest and enjoy yourself no matter what’s going on, especially since there will be a Full Moon in your sign over the weekend sensuously lit up by a Taurus Sun passing through your House of Relationships. You know I’ve been teasing you recently about encountering a special someone with Neptune lingering in your House of Romance…..well……a word to the wise, just sayin’.

 

Sagittarius- Early in the week when Mercury in your House of Romance squares Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth, you may find yourself reflecting back on the one that got away, especially since at the same time Venus will enter Gemini and your House of Relationships. Take a moment to seriously ask yourself, if you could, would you really want to go back with this person? Mars and Pluto are also together in your House of Self Worth and together they are lined up with a behind the scenes Jupiter retrograde who is trying to explain that just because you remember something a certain way doesn’t mean that’s the way it really happened. You’re worried love has passed you by, but maybe that’s not the case at all. Perhaps you’ve just stopped feeling good about yourself and that’s the only thing that can keep pace with love, especially when there isn’t a lover present to remind you of your worthiness. The Scorpio Full Moon over the weekend could be a real downer if you choose to isolate yourself, so make sure you get out there and connect with people.

 

Capricorn- What do you think others expect of you? What do you expect of yourself? These are both necessary and important questions for you now, although don’t be overly concerned with what the answers should be, simply because any real answer would have to be predicated on knowing who you are to begin with and that, my “Capra” friend, is the million dollar question you need to figure out. Mercury rushing through Aries in your House of Foundations and squaring Saturn in your sign is the part of you that “has to know”, while Pluto and Mars (also in your sign) aligning with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Dreams is the effort you’re willing to make toward that end. It may just be the Sun transiting through Taurus and your House of Creativity that sets you free here, as it aligns with Saturn retrograde to help you realize that choosing to accept life is the only real answer to the question of self in a never ending Universe. Namaste (Yeah, you heard me right, I just said Namaste….hahaha).

 

Aquarius- You could be feeling torn this week as Mercury going through your House of Communications has you filled with all sorts of cool ideas and the need to share them, while at the same time Saturn behind the scenes aligning with the Sun in your House of Foundations is telling you to follow the head in front of you and stick to the rules. This could get dicey because Pluto and Mars are also behind the scenes like a pair of revolutionaries and as they align with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Public Image you might actually feel that by not pushing the envelope you might be selling out. Not to worry, rebellious Uranus should arrive to rescue you just in the nick of time as he and the Scorpio Full Moon inconjunct one another over the weekend. No doubt this quirky pair will help you to return to form and do something beautifully irrational as you “Go the distance…..” to the sound of a voice only you can hear.

 

Pisces- I hate to say this, but with Neptune in your sign for a long time to come it might be a good idea to get a very loud whistle and a very bright flashlight so people will be able to find you in the fog now engulfing you. Mercury in your House of Self Worth will have you grabbing when you should be patient and Saturn in your House of Dreams will have you waiting when you should be going after what you want. What to do? Because he is in a water sign, it would be wise for you to listen to the wise council of Jupiter retrograde as he passes along through your House of Philosophy. Perhaps his alignment with Pluto and Mars will help you to see that discretion can often be the better part of valor, meaning if you’re practical and patient you can live to fight another day when the circumstances might be more propitious (that is, when you know what you’re fighting for). Then again, the Scorpio Full Moon over the weekend could have you convinced that hula-hoops will be a thing again. Why don’t we do a test of that whistle and flashlight I suggested earlier?

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #29

 

 Hi kids!!! Unfortunately for this coming week of 3/26 – 4/1 there will be no horoscopes here at Mr. Saturn’s Stars.

Mrs. Saturn and I are currently in the midst of transitioning to a new life and all of my wisdom and experience must be directed toward that end. Of course the horoscopes here at Mr. Saturn’s Stars will be back next week so take care and we’ll see you on the other side.

 

“We shall not cease from exploration

And the end of all our exploring

Will be to arrive where we started

And know the place for the first time.

Through the unknown, remembered gate

When the last of the earth left to discover

Is that which was the beginning….”

-T.S. Eliot

Aries- Whatever it is you may want there is a way to get it and a way not to get it. Mercury and Venus in your sign squaring Saturn in your House of Career will be staging this debate as the week unfolds, therefore, consider your career choices wisely; not only who you cultivate but who you annoy as well. As Mars slowly gets ready to pass from Sagittarius to Capricorn and enter into a conjunction with Saturn by the end of the month, realize that your conduct now could either establish a solid foundation for your future or else stop you in your tracks next month.

 

Taurus- As the New Moon in Pisces approaches you are keenly aware of your emotional needs as well as how these desires are not being met. It is important though for you to be honest with yourself and realize that the type of association you’re looking for can only be the result of time and commitment, which you will be reminded of as Mars enters Capricorn to join Saturn and Pluto at exactly the same time as the new Moon dawns in Pisces and trines Jupiter in your house of Relationships. If you don’t have “The” Love of your life yet, at least try to enjoy the love that already surrounds you, of which there is plenty from both friends and family.

 

Gemini- Make sure that you look before you leap this week as your legendary Gemini impulsiveness could find you caught in a free fall without a parachute. Whatever you expect from others, either in your close relationships or on the job, anything that is spoken about now is going to require a thorough process before it will bear fruit. Mars and Uranus in aspect to start the week will rile you up, but by the weekend when Mars enters Capricorn to join Saturn and Pluto the natural order of things will already have taken over and no amount of emotionalism spurred on by The Sun aligning with Jupiter will change anything. Try to be patient, or at least try not to shoot yourself in the foot.

 

Cancer- Mars aligning with Uranus to start the week will bring a fast and furious barrage of challenges and the Sun moving into aspect with Jupiter could lead to some intense feelings about what’s going on. On the other hand, Mercury and Venus in Aries should make you quick on your feet and give you the gift of gab as you manage to negotiate yourself through this maze of difficulties. By the time the weekend rolls around Mars, Saturn, and Pluto will all be in your House of Relationships and as they alternate aligning with Neptune in your House of Philosophy, make sure you take the time to appreciate all the love you have in your life. No matter how tough things may seem, you are not alone. Fight the good fight and remember, “A life well loved is a life well lived.”

 

Leo- With Mercury and Venus now in Aries and squaring Saturn in your House of Work, this is the time for you to get moving out of a dead end job! Jupiter retrograde coming into alignment with Pluto is reminding you that you have already paid your dues in the trenches and now it’s time to move on to something bigger and better. The New Moon in your House of Death and Transformation has already started sketching out some new scenarios in your imagination as to what your future could look like with a career makeover, all that remains now is for you to get inspired and start sending out those applications and resumes.

 

Virgo- You have spent a while now trying to build up a creative project and now you’re in the home stretch. The last hurdle to overcome is to get out there and promote what you’re doing. Mercury and Venus squaring Saturn in your House of Creativity are chomping at the bit to spread the word so what are you waiting for? Let those Chatty Kathy’s out of the corral so they can schmooze up the countryside. On another note, the New Moon in your House of Relationships aligning with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Communications could see a break through in a stalemate that has been going on between you and a partner. The connection between the two of you was never really threatened, it was just that each of you were changing (for the better) and now you’ve come around that learning curve. Why not celebrate!

 

Libra- You have been experiencing the ground shifting underneath your feet for a while now, perhaps the time has come for you to pull a “Network” and go to your window, open it up, and shout, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it anymore!” Mercury and Venus in your House of Relationships squaring Saturn (and very soon Mars) in your House of Symbolic Foundations would indicate it’s no longer about hoping the current will carry you along, instead you need to start paddling ferociously toward the challenges that are waiting for you like a gang of bullies in the schoolyard. Just make a commitment to yourself that no one is getting your lunch money, no matter what! The New Moon in Pisces aligning with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Self Worth should help you find that inspiration you need to keep going. As they used to say in the 60’s, “Keep the Faith, Baby.”

 

Scorpio- Mercury and Venus in your House of Work and Routines should guarantee a busy week, while Saturn in your House of Communication should provide you with the vision and authority to effectively delegate whatever tasks may be too much for you to handle. On the other hand, Mars in Sagittarius aligning with Uranus in Aries could activate your natural control issues and make you want to instead try and do everything yourself. When Mars enters Capricorn later in the week and approaches a conjunction with Saturn, you will no doubt see the error in your judgment and reconsider asking for help. As the New Moon comes into aspect with Jupiter retrograde over the weekend this help could likely arrive as a very timely payback for a good deed you performed in the past. What goes around comes around so enjoy it.

 

Sagittarius- Mars should be leaving your sign with a bang this week as it trines Uranus in your House of Fun and Creativity. Enjoy the moment while you can because Mars will have to put on the breaks almost immediately afterwards as it enters Capricorn and comes right up on the bumper of Mr. Saturn. Of course with Mercury and Venus already in your House of Fun and both of them squaring Saturn you’ll probably be tempted to keep pushing your agenda when in fact you should be getting down to business and following the rules. A word to the wise, Jupiter retrograde aligning with the New Moon and moving ever closer to Pluto should bring you all the resources you need, but only if you’re willing to listen to what the man say’s and walk the straight and narrow. This is not the time to bite off your nose to spite your face.

 

Capricorn- By the end of this week you will have Pluto, Saturn, and Mars all in your sign. This is a notable trio that should give you some real gravitas in whatever situations you may find yourself. In addition to these heavy hitters you will also have a beneficial placement of Neptune in your House of Communication, which will no doubt allow you to be the perfect example of being able to talk softly because you have a big stick. Unfortunately though you may have to use that stick on the home front as Mercury and Venus in Aries could motivate a partner or relative to get a little too pushy for your liking. Jupiter retrograde backing up toward Pluto is all about you remembering to value yourself, so don’t spare the discipline when it comes to anyone disrespecting you.

 

Aquarius- You are undergoing a lot of renovation behind the scenes as Saturn, Pluto, and Mars get to work tearing your ego down to the studs. Neptune in your House of Self Worth could either facilitate this process toward spiritual growth, or else resist it causing you to become lost in an enchanted forest of ego. Either way the New Moon in that same House of Self Worth aligning with Jupiter in your House of Public Image will have you feeling a lot more emotional than usual. Mercury and Venus in your House of Communication will in turn have you talking up a storm, the question is will you be whining and making excuses or promoting solutions? At this point we’re back again to Saturn, Pluto, and Mars behind the scenes, so what other choice do you have except to let the renovation proceed?

 

Pisces- A weak person will let their difficulties define them, while a strong person will redefine him or herself in order to prevail over their circumstances. With Mercury and Venus in your House of Self Worth squaring Saturn (and soon Mars) in your House of Dreams, you are in just such a situation, so what are you going to do? The New Moon in your sign this week will trine Jupiter as the the King of the Planets retrogrades toward Pluto, meaning that the real issue for you now is not about failure or success, rather it is about the ability to see yourself as you truly are and realize the challenges of life are about your evolution and not your status. A Pisces Native from the past once said, “It is not those who can inflict the most, but those who can suffer the most who will win.”
