Jupiter Leaves Libra and Enters Scorpio on 10/10/2017

After transiting through the sign of Libra for the last 13 months, Jupiter will enter the sign of Scorpio for the first time in approximately 12 years on October 10, 2017 at 9:20 a.m. EST.

Part I

 What is a Jupiter Return?/Review of Jupiter in Libra/ Jupiter in Scorpio and the USA for the Remainder of 2017

 It usually takes Jupiter approximately one year to transit through a sign of the zodiac, therefore every 12 years or so each sign will have what is known as it’s Jupiter Return. Before today, the last time that Jupiter was in Scorpio was November 24, 2006. During that period it was conjunct with Mars in Scorpio and square to Saturn in Leo. Two notable events that occurred then which are relevant today are the launching of WikiLeaks by Internet activist Julian Assange and North Korea testing its first nuclear device.

The sign of Scorpio is commonly associated with both secrecy and power. The significance of this in relation to Jupiter entering this sign can be better understood if one connects the dots between the previously mentioned events of 12 years ago and what the parties involved  are currently up to. Specifically one can look at how how the recent U.S. Presidential Election was undermined by WikiLeaks releasing Hilary Clinton’s emails, as well as how the current battle going on between Donald Trump and North Korea reveals the darker motivations behind that country’s initial nuclear experiments.

Before beginning to look at Jupiter’s recent move into Scorpio, I would first like to take a few moments to review the passage of Jupiter through Libra in order to better understand how the stage has been set for this current cycle.

In Astrology, the planet Jupiter is considered the archetype of nobility, leadership, philosophy, and courage, while Libra is the sign that symbolizes balance, relationships, and justice. When looking back over the period that Jupiter was in Libra, the influence of these two energies can be clearly seen in the rise of interest and subsequent debates involving humanitarian issues such as Racism, Universal Health Care, and Economic Equality. When interpreting a transit though it should be kept in mind that each Astrological Symbol can be viewed in either a positive or negative way depending on the situation. For example, when reconsidering the past 13 months, even though the nobility and balance of Jupiter and Libra were reflected in the issues being discussed, there were many people during that time who were passionately arguing the opposite side of these issues as well.

It might be fair to say then that perhaps the most important characteristic of the Jupiter/Libra transit was not that idealism would prevail, but that more people than ever before would be motivated to participate in the process of trying to build a positive future for our society. While this increased activism is both a welcome and important trend, it should also be realized that it was not something that came about in a vacuum, rather it represented a frightened and angry reaction by many Americans to a badly broken Democratic System where greedy and even potentially treasonous agendas have seriously threatened the rights and safety of every man, woman, and child. One does not need to look very far to see that the willingness of the Jupiter in Libra energy to confront controversial issues has made our current situation one of the most politically turbulent periods in American history, a time characterized by striking polarities of positive and negative ideas and events.

So what comes next? As the planet named after the King of the Gods enters Scorpio in early October, its modus operandi will change quite noticeably from idealism to power (refer back to the earlier examples that were given of the birth of WikiLeaks and North Korea’s Nuclear Tests). Where Jupiter in Libra seemed to oscillate back and forth between authority and resistance, the contrasts of Jupiter in Scorpio will go back and forth in a much darker environment. Here in the sign that rules death and transformation the battle for control will go on between a Dark Machiavellian Order hell-bent on total domination and Crusading Investigators trying to reveal the corruption that hides within the halls of our Democracy. Remember how you felt over the last several years watching the Netflix series “House of Cards” and thinking to yourself, “OMG, is this the way it really is behind the scenes in our government?” As Special Independent Investigator Mueller’s search into the Trump campaign’s possible collusion with Russian operatives intensifies, expect to see the truth become a lot stranger and more dramatic than fiction could ever be!

Once it enters Scorpio, Jupiter will begin its movement through the remainder of 2017 by engaging in a succession of conjunctions in that sign, beginning with Mercury, followed by The Sun, and concluding with Venus. As a result, expect even more cat and mouse games in Washington around the Russia issue as the Hunter (Special Investigator Mueller) tries to track down his prey (the herd in the White House), only to discover how that prey was initially stalked by a pack of Wolves (Putin) who are now trying try to turn the situation around and transform the hunter into the hunted. The White House may think it can get away with Executive immunity or pardons to undermine the Mueller Investigation, but I think not. I also believe any attempts to fire the Special Investigator will also backfire quite badly for the current administration.

At the very end of the year during the period of December 3rd through the 6th, a Jupiter trine to Neptune will occur simultaneously with a Full Moon in Gemini, followed just days later by a Mercury station-retrograde in conjunction with Saturn. At this point we will all feel like we’re falling down the rabbit hole as illusion, gullibility, righteousness, mendacity, and truth all shout at one another across the airwaves and through social media as this whole circus moves inexorably toward an epic confrontation in January 2018. It will all begin with a deadly Jupiter/ Mars conjunction in Scorpio that will fuel a practical and transformational Venus/Pluto conjunction in rigid, no nonsense Capricorn, just as that sign welcomes back it’s own ruling despot, Saturn, after a 29 year absence. Expect subpoenas and indictments to rain down, followed shortly thereafter by resignations and deals to testify in exchange for reduced sentences and/or immunity. I suspect however that few who are guilty will be spared, simply because the future of our Democracy will depend on the adequate punishment of these traitors.

As Thomas Paine wrote in his “American Crisis;” ”These are the times that try men’s souls.” Or in the words of the late Bette Davis, “Buckle your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.”

Part II

 How Jupiter will affect the signs individually for the remainder of 2017

 Aries- As Jupiter moves through your House of Death and Transformation it is important to try and establish control over your income and shared resources. Career possibilities loom large and you’ll need maximum mobility and solvency to take advantage of any opportunities.

Taurus- Stability is what every Taurus dreams of, but at what price? Are your current relationships in balance? A true partnership is when you get as good as you give, so make sure what’s going around is actually coming around.

Gemini- Are you fulfilling your daily responsibilities? If you wish to be in control of your work environment then fully embrace what is expected of you. Trying to compromise your way through obstacles or avoid them altogether may well blow up in your face, so be careful.

Cancer- What do you want and what are you willing to do to get it? Jupiter going through your House of Creativity will fire your imagination but are you willing to follow your inspiration? If those around you are requiring all your energy maybe you need to reclaim some of it back, not only for your dreams but for your sanity as well.

Leo- If you’re wondering where your life is headed then begin by looking at where you are. Do you have a firm foundation upon which to build those dreams you have? Maybe it’s time now to consider investing in that home you’ve always wanted for you and yours?

Virgo- You will never make any more than you think you’re worth so maybe it’s time now to formulate a new philosophy and speak up for what you deserve. You’re not one to cut corners, but haven’t you been in the same place for a while now? Start thinking bigger!

Libra- You’ve been having visions of a better way for awhile and with Jupiter going through your House of Earnings the time has come for you to move forward with those plans you’ve been working on. Projects you start during this period could gain the kind of traction that can bring long-term success.

Scorpio- You like to play yours cards close to your vest, but maybe now is the time to gamble and stop trying to always be in control? Perhaps opening up will make you seem even stronger and more of a leader than others realize? Or, more importantly, maybe more than you have realized?

Sagittarius-Jupiter going through your House of Secrets may be more about what you discover about yourself rather than what you fear others may find out about you. What a surprise when you realize that your worst enemy has always been looking at you from the mirror.

Capricorn- You’re really feeling your oats right now and are completely convinced nothing can stop you….but not so fast! You’ll attract more support at this point from your colleagues if you’re willing to compromise a little; after all, you’re powerful enough to be magnanimous, right?

Aquarius- If you’re feeling like you’ve missed the boat maybe it’s because you belong where you are? That may be a hard pill to swallow, but you can turn things around now if you’re willing to be honest with yourself and engage in some real soul searching rather than blaming circumstances or other people.

Pisces- With Jupiter in your House of Philosophy and Neptune in your House of Ego, the danger now is that you see things the way you want to rather than the way they actually are. This may lead to some conflicts but these are necessary for you to evolve and discover who and what you really are.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #5 Horoscopes for 10/9-10/15, 2017

Horoscopes for 10/9 – 10/15, 2017

 Hi kids!!! Mr. Saturn is talking to you this week from the belly of the beast-the Queens County Civil Court in Jamaica, Queens. Surprisingly enough, this is one of the only places where Mr. Saturn is less than himself, though you’d think he would love a good Court House or Jail, right? Actually the reason he’s in court is because he was called for jury duty. Even Mr. Saturn has rules to follow.

Aries- You will probably be feeling a bit unsettled this week. A situation is changing with an important person in your life and with the Sun and Mercury in your House of Partnerships squaring Pluto you’re not really sure how things will turn out. When the Moon moves into Cancer in the middle of the week and meets up with Jupiter entering Scorpio, you may feel like the rug is being pulled out from under you. Not really, it’s just your control issues looking back at you from a mirror being held up by Neptune in your House of Confinement. Over the weekend after a Leo Moon enters your House of Fun and makes nice with Venus in Libra, you’ll no doubt have a big smile ready when Mr. Saturn asks you to say, “CHEESE!” for his fb post.

Taurus- This will be a week of mixed feelings as you move forward with a big decision you’ve made. If you’ve recently decided to move or switch jobs, make sure you realize that your fear of change is in your head, just like the possibility of losing touch with true friends. You wanted a fresh start and now you’re going to get it. Pluto in your House of Long Distance Journeys and Venus with Mars in your House of Creativity have been planning this with you for the last month, so move forward with confidence. Venus moving into Libra and the Moon in Leo over the weekend should provide a hopeful reception from whatever awaits. In the meantime Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you.

“Uncertainty forms

A space for discovery

To come and meet you”

Gemini- As the week begins you will find yourself re-evaluating your interactions with people. Mr. Saturn in your House of Relationships will be reminding you that the only one you really have control of is yourself. The way others treat you will only be a reflection of that, so stop letting someone else dictate the mood you’re in. As Jupiter enters your House of Work start letting those on the job see the real you. If you’re necessary to them then they’ll have to deal with it! The Leo Moon over the weekend will make you want to escape into the Land of Fun, where the Sun, Mercury, and Venus are all waiting.

Cancer- The arc of the Moon for you this week will begin with worrying about a friend or family member, followed by you trying to fix their problem for them, and ending with you making your own stressed out life a priority instead (at last!!!). Meanwhile, your job is still just a job, but a new challenge may be presented to you this the week that might make you forget how bored and unappreciated you have felt. A relationship should regain some of its old spark when Venus enters your domestic sphere and you decide to start bringing happy home again instead of your frustrations with the world. “Oh baby, you know what I like,” purrs Mr. Saturn.

Leo- Early in the week when the Moon enters Cancer and Jupiter moves into Scorpio your current living situation is going to become a major priority (if it isn’t already) simply because you don’t feel at home there (and never really did). You have compromised yourself into this corner for someone else and now you feel stuck. Realize you have the resources to change the situation so it isn’t you that’s stuck. It’s just that you’ve been waiting for a partner to start pulling their own weight. Maybe they need a push to get going (or is it you that needs to be pushed?)? When the Moon enters your sign over the weekend you’ll have all the reasons necessary to express yourself on this situation. Mr. Saturn is just wondering if it will come out like the meow of a pussycat or the roar of a lion?

Virgo- You’ve been occupied for a while now trying to make everything perfect before you offer your work to the world. As Jupiter enters Scorpio and Venus arrives in your House of Self Worth, it’s your confidence that’s going to have to rise to a level worthy of the work, not the other way around. You see it’s no longer about what you do (and you do it so well) it’s about what you think about yourself. The arc of the Moon this week will make you want to continue this excessive polishing of something that already shines, but what you need to realize instead is that you just have to get over a good old fashion case of cold feet. Unless of course you’d rather have your partner point it out to you? “Ouch!” comments Mr. Saturn.

Libra- A lot has been going on behind the scenes for you, in fact, if you look back, you’ll be surprised just how much your daily life has changed. It won’t be long before all the hard work you’ve been doing will start to show rewards. If money has been tight, plan on a welcome influx of opportunities and/or cash as Jupiter enters your House of Earnings and the Moon transits your House of Career. With Venus emerging out of the shadows at the end of the week and coming to visit, expect to be a little more in demand than usual. The Leo Moon over the weekend will be about friends, but don’t be surprised if you’re the center of attention. Mr. Saturn may even want to buy you a drink!

Scorpio- Jupiter is the planetary archetype of Philosophy and when it enters your sign early in the week don’t be surprised if you find yourself thinking a little bigger than usual. This expansive attitude will be helped when the Moon enters Cancer at the same time, so make sure you’re listening to those intuitive urges you’re feeling. A Mars/Saturn square will last most of the week and provide some immediate challenges in terms of your available resources, but when the Moon enters Leo over the weekend and squares Jupiter your pride will answer the call. As Mr. Saturn always say’s, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.”

Sagittarius- You seem to have so many responsibilities, but are any of them to yourself? Mr. Saturn in your sign has been like death and taxes, and his square to Mars this week will make it feel like you’re driving a car with the brake on at work. Pluto will also be aspecting Mars at this time and together they may be the answer to getting unstuck at work. That is, if you’re wiling to take a risk and look for another situation where you’d be more appreciated. Jupiter is the planetary ruler of your sign and this week it will enter Scorpio and cross the threshold into your House of Secrets. This is a very protective influence and could bring either moral support or financial help from a sympathetic friend or family member.

Capricorn- Pluto in your sign for the last minute has been like having the “Tibetan Book of the Dead” performed in your living room, although for the time being the Bardos containing the demons may be over. Jupiter entering Scorpio in your House of Hopes and Dreams at the same time as a Cancer Moon arrives in your House of Partnerships could bring a new friend or special someone into your life. Expect this person to be attracted to who you’re evolving into and not who you’ve been. Over the weekend Venus coming home to Libra and the Moon cruising into Leo will amp up your charisma, so make sure you’re out and about for the world to see. Mr. Saturn may even lower his shades to check you out!

Aquarius- With the lower part of your chart containing only Neptune in Pisces, Uranus in Aries, and the Moon, which will enter Cancer mid-week, this could be perhaps the most anxious you have felt in a while. When Jupiter enters Scorpio it will be crossing your mid-heaven, so be careful your pride doesn’t become your Achilles heel. Venus returning home to Libra is a good thing, but for you it may be no more than a nervous smile trying to hide some serious anger. After all, Pluto in your House of Secrets has been harboring more than a little resentment for a while. A word to the wise, Mr. Saturn has your House of Secrets scheduled for an audit at year’s end, so for now just try to breathe until Pluto and his work can be accounted for.

Pisces- With Uranus and Pluto camped out in two of your three money Houses, finances have been quite erratic for some time now. However, with Venus entering your House of Legacies, a welcome balance is now being introduced to that third money House so take a deep breath and relax. Jupiter entering Scorpio combined with the Moon in Cancer mid-week will serve to ignite your intuition and you may come up with some clever (and profitable) ideas. If you’ve been unemployed (or under employed) as of late, the Moon in Leo over the weekend could bring a lead for a new job. Mr. Saturn in your House of Career would add,“just make sure you’re scrubbed up right for any interview, appearances count.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #4

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/2 – 10/8, 2017

 Hi kids!!! Thanks for stopping by again this week. Are you ready for your straight, no chaser shot of Astrology? If any of you have any questions, or agree or disagree with anything that appears here, feel free to make a comment or even take a knee if you’d like. Mr. Saturn supports the NFL (No F**king Lies).

Aries- This week may turn out to be a lesson in the art of compromise. Even though you’re feeling inspired, maybe even visionary, circumstances may dictate this isn’t the right time for you to get your way. Of course this annoys you and having rebellious Uranus in your sign isn’t helping matters. A Full Moon in Aries late in the week will highlight relationship issues (specifically the absence of one). Mr. Saturn would suggest trying to be a little more Zen about how you could be more approachable, which would mean sitting still for a change and actually allowing someone else to do the approaching.

Taurus- On the surface you appear to be as stable as Mt. Fuji, but with a Full Moon this week in your House of Secrets you will be bubbling under the surface like a volcano. With Uranus in that secret place as well, the time has come for you Bulls to see red and put an end to all the crap you’ve been putting up with from passive aggressive (and even downright aggressive) assh*les. This weekend the Moon in your sign will be aligning with Venus, Mars, and Pluto, so be willing to let your hair down either figuratively or literally. Mr. Saturn would also add this reminder, “If you’re partying, make sure you do it responsibly and may the Force be with you.”

Gemini- Here we go again. You try to be fair to some lazy ass at work and instead end up being perceived as a push over. This week’s Aries Full Moon will be in your House of Groups and square Pluto in your house of Power, so maybe it’s time to stop worrying about being nice to a manipulator and instead be effective in dealing with them, especially if you’re going to be the one that’s ultimately responsible for what they do or don’t do. Being a History buff, Mr. Saturn would like to share one of his fav quotes, “Speak softly, but carry a big stick.”

Cancer- The arc of the Moon this week will span from Pisces to Taurus, from sensitivity to stability, with an explosive stop in between when it reaches it’s full stage in compulsive, hard charging Aries. You may be tempted to lose it at work later in the week, but don’t take the bait. The person trying to provoke you has realized you’re beyond their influence and they’re grasping at straws. Your ability at this time to be the consummate professional will not only set the tone for where you’re headed psychologically and spiritually, but it will also drive this bully nuts! Mr. Saturn’s impressed…imagine that!

Leo- The point of having stability in your life is so you won’t have to worry about it. Venus and Mars in your House of Earned Income and Pluto in your job area would show that at this time you have a solid foundation to build on. The Full Moon in Aries later in the week in your House of Philosophy is therefore going to be more about your sense of self worth rather than your material status, meaning that any real sense of security needs to come from within you and not your circumstances. As a result, be careful about coming up with excuses to defer a dream you have. What’s that? No, you’re not hearing things, that’s Mr. Saturn clucking like a chicken in the background.

Virgo- With Mr. Saturn in your House of Foundations and the Full Moon in your House of Transformation, the theme this week should be one of reconciliation. You should seriously consider the possibility that the way you think of someone can prejudice the way you interpret (and subsequently judge) his or her behavior. The Full Moon in Aries may summon up some circumstances that could help you better understand the song lyric, “walk a mile in my shoes before you criticize and accuse.” Consider also that the harsh judgments you occasionally direct at others could actually be a projection of how you feel about yourself.

Libra- You could receive a surprise this week in the form of some unexpected recognition. Venus and Mars behind the scenes in Virgo along with the Aries Full Moon in your House of Partnerships could bring an offer to promote either something you’ve done in the past that’s still relevant or perhaps a newer idea whose time has come. Mr. Saturn rewards those who do the work and he’s been watching you toiling away in your House of Writing for the last couple of years. A Taurus Moon over the weekend will help you relax with loved ones. Enjoy a nature hike or just lounge on a park bench.

Scorpio- Pay attention to your health this week. Not that there is anything wrong, but you have been neglecting your body and if you want it to keep up with your active life-style then this could be the time for a tune-up. With Neptune in your House of Romance and Fun it may also be the right time for you to come out of hiding and show the world you’re available. Venus and Mars in your House of Friends and Groups will insure that you shine with that unmistakable Scorpio allure, while Jupiter behind the scenes under the light of a Full Moon could bring you luck in the form of a very interesting stranger. Woo woo!!!

Sagittarius- Be careful that you haven’t given up on the possibility of joy in your life. With the Full Moon this week in your House of Fun what would it take for you to say, “Oh what the hell!” and then do something enjoyable? The Sun is transiting your House of Groups so make sure you accept any invitations that come your way. Uranus could bring some unexpected adventures and maybe a new companion to help you explore this mysterious new world of happy. Mr. Saturn in your sign will still be your chaperone for a while, but he may just be willing to look the other way this time. Will you risk it?

Capricorn- We can go all the way to the other side of the earth but our issues will always follow us. An obstacle now may appear to be a set back, but a Full Moon this week at the bottom of your chart is going to birth a new you to rise to the occasion. Just remember babies don’t want to be born, they’re forced to. In fact they’re literally thrown out kicking and screaming. You’ve been praying for a change and now the time has come. All you have to do is be willing to change your mind; piece of cake, right? Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you. Enjoy.

“You can’t expect what

Will set you free, only hope

That you accept it”

Aquarius- Discretion may be the better part of valor for you this week. The temptation to speak your mind may be irresistible during the Aries Full Moon, but remember, a diplomatic Libra Sun is illuminating that Moon so keep to the Taoist principle that the Superior Individual shows his or her intelligence by concealing it. Besides, whomever this individual is that you’d like to unload on, they might just have something you will need in the future. Mr. Saturn say’s, “take your lead from Sydney Greenstreet in “The Maltese Falcon,” that dude was smooth.”

Pisces- The lessons you are learning now are not just about succeeding at whatever it is you need to accomplish, but also that you master the excesses of your personality in the process. The Full Moon this week in your House of Self Worth opposing a balanced Libra Sun in the House of Shared Resources will be trying to show you the connections that exist between how you feel about yourself and then how that attitude is reflected in the surrounding world. Mr. Saturn would summarize it as, “good luck is about who you are, not what you do.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #3

Weekly Horoscopes for 9/25 – 10/1 2017

 Hi kids!!! Welcome to the newest installment of “Mr. Saturn’s Stars”. Why don’t you get comfortable, take a deep breath, sit back, and relax. You have another 12 words to read before reality hits the fan and the lessons begin….<3

 

Aries- What would you like to see working better in your life? With Venus and Mars in your House of Health and Routines the time has come for some positive changes. Consider going for a make over, hiring a personal trainer, or even renovating your home or office space. The arc of the Moon this week through Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius will be telling you to “Acknowledge what needs to be done and then take the necessary steps. In addition Mr. Saturn would add, “and stop whining how difficult things are, it only makes matters that much worse.”

Taurus- As a Sagittarius Moon squares both Neptune and Saturn to start the week, you may be torn between being convinced you’ll be successful and worrying that the Universe is against you. By mid-week a Capricorn Moon along with Pluto, Venus, and Mars should be of assistance in helping you to understand that the truth is not the reflection of a mood, but rather a realization that exists somewhere between hope and pessimism in that unavoidable place known as effort. With the Moon in Aquarius over the weekend don’t be surprised if you hear Mr. Saturn whispering over your shoulder, “Build it, and they will come…. Go the distance!”

Gemini- You say you’re ready for a change, but with Neptune sitting at the top of your chart are you really sure what that means? Venus and Mars in your House of Foundations is like having one of those property-flipping couples from Cable TV show up at your door offering to transform your life into a more “open concept.” That may seem exciting, but are you ready to start digging under the surface of your day-to-day in order to see what needs to be repaired, or even trashed altogether? Mr. Saturn’s advice would be, “when people say they’re ready, it usually means they’re ready for what they already know. Real change needs to be a complete mystery, so be careful what you ask for……”

Cancer- Mr. Saturn say’s, “Growing pains are not just for kids.” You have learned that quite well over the last few months my crabby friend, having fretted and worried over every single change that has come down the pike for you and yours. But rejoice, an epiphany is at hand! Venus, Mars, and Mercury in your House of Thinking are finally grounding all the visions Neptune has been downloading to you from the heavens. These realizations can be crystalized by simply repeating the Magick words, “LET GO”. You are about to enter a very creative phase when Jupiter goes into Scorpio next month, so get started now by doing something completely different, like forgiving yourself.

Leo- There is nothing sadder than seeing a Lion in captivity, unless of course that Lion is wearing the key to his cage around his neck. You’ve felt stuck for a while now, but if you’d just take a good look in the mirror you’d see that the key to freedom is in your possession. You’re ready for a change and you have the resources to make it happen. The question is, do you believe you deserve to have your dreams? With Jupiter and Uranus in your Houses of Writing and Philosophy this would probably be an excellent time to start organizing your creative ideas into a formal project. Once you’ve made the effort, Mr. Saturn in your House of Creativity might very well suggest, “If you need an editor, I’m available.

Virgo- With Venus and Mars aspecting Pluto in your House of Creativity and Romance your charisma at this time is undeniable, so make sure you get out there and work it! Look for a new job, promote your ideas, but remember, with Neptune in your House of Partnerships don’t make the mistake of being too agreeable or you could end up getting played. Jupiter and Uranus in opposing money houses could indicate either windfalls or rip-offs, so be careful. In short Mr. Saturn would advise, “Grass, gas, or ass, but no one rides for free!”

Libra- The Sun will be in your sign for the next month so don’t waste it! This week the Moon will be moving through your areas of Ideas, Foundations, and Creativity, so Mr. Saturn say’s get out there and start searching around to promote your ideas and creative projects, especially those involving writing or healing modalities. Relationships could be challenging at this time. What would be very helpful though in eliminating possible problems with partners and family would be a willingness to be honest and communicate. With Neptune in your House of Work and Routines things could get confusing, so don’t take anything for granted in your dealings with others.

Scorpio- Jupiter transiting through the secret part of your chart has been a protective influence for you at work. As a result you have been able to grow and mature in the face of some very difficult challenges. Now though you have the time (if you want) to focus on your personal life and the things that are closer to your heart. Get in touch with a friend you haven’t seen in a while, or spend some time with a special young person in your life. Follow through on that idea you are always thinking or talking about but never investing any time in. Take the time to “do you”. You are the inspiration for Mr. Saturn’s haiku this month, so put that thinking cap on!

Is your “free” time spent

Like a skydiver who thinks

Falling is flying?

Sagittarius- Neptune is a very slow moving planet and its action in our chart is subtle. Imagine filling a dirty pot with hot water and then letting it soak overnight so that the crusty leftover food will be easier to clean away. Neptune will be doing this in your House of Home and Family for several more years, meaning that any difficulties you are having now with your parents or siblings are intended to change you into what you need to be as opposed to what they want you to be. Pluto is your wingman on this as well, meaning your karma is at work, so pay attention! Mr. Saturn say’s “karma is like a Ping-Pong match. If you try to win then play only continues. The idea is to walk away and break the cycle.”

Capricorn- Your immediate reality has you extremely frustrated and you have lost sight of the forest for the trees. Venus, Mars, and Mercury in your House of Philosophy have you struggling to make sense of your recent losses (Pluto) in the midst of a foggy present (Neptune). In addition, a Jupiter and Uranus opposition at the top and bottom of your chart has you struggling to keep sight of the stars that represent your dreams as you stand on the deck of a dramatically rocking ship piloted by Mr. Saturn, who is giving an Oscar worthy performance as the domineering Captain Bligh to your morally torn Mr. Christian.

Aquarius- You pride yourself as a “thinker” who knows it all, but as of late your philosophical outlook has only been about control. You want the environment to facilitate your comfort, when the smarter approach would be to let the environment transform you beyond your current limitations. The arc of the Moon this week will bring home a lesson of responsibility when it meets with Pluto in your House of Confinement. A “Personal New Moon” in your sign will follow this over the weekend just as Mercury enters Libra. Mr. Saturn would advise that the writing on the wall at this time is about balance and compromise, not control.

Pisces- As long as Neptune is in your sign it’ll seem like you’re living in San Francisco when the fog rolls in off Alcatraz and the harbor is reduced to zero visibility. A crowd of planets now in Virgo opposing Neptune may act like a spotlight and reveal to you something you’d rather not see; remember Bogie’s surprise in the Maltese Falcon when he discovers his dead partner down at the foggy pier? Mr. Saturn in your House of Career and Uranus in your house of Self Worth might be indicating it’s time to conform a little and accept how things are, even if it’s not how you want them to be. A current relationship may seem like the perfect escape, just don’t become someone else’s idea of you.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #2 9/18-9/24, 2017

Horoscopes for 9/18 – 9/24 2017

 Hi kids! Welcome to “Mr. Saturn’s Stars” for this week. I hope you will all enjoy your new horror-scopes….oh, I mean horoscopes……lol !!! Just a little Saturnian humor, excuse me.

Aries- Last week was about career and this week will be about relationships. Wow, you look unhappy all of a sudden. Both the Sun and the Moon will be crossing from Virgo into Libra and entering your House of Partnerships. The Moon will do it early in the week and the Sun over the weekend, which means you’ll worry about what’s going on way more than you should and then have to deal with it anyway. A Jupiter-Uranus opposition will bring up the same old story of your independence and control issues and Mr. Saturn will be there in your House of Philosophy to make sure you realize the problem is you and not anyone else!

Taurus- Cows are generally nice creatures until they’re not! Ever see one in the middle of the road causing a traffic jam? Uranus will be causing you some deep down anxiety once Venus enters Virgo and you realize that you’re going to have to stop sitting there and actually do something if you’d like to maintain your comfort zone. Mr. Saturn’s comment about the situation would be, “Have you really been that comfortable anyway?” Pluto in your House of Philosophy and Venus, Mars, and Mercury in your House of Creativity are planning a protest for change and you might want to listen to their talking points, “2, 4, 6, 8, we don’t have the time to wait!” In other words, do what you have to do to improve your current situation or find another one…and soon! “

Gemini- Venus, Mars, and Mercury in your Home and Family area are in aspect to Pluto in your House of shared resources, indicating your situation with a partner might be facing some immediate changes. That could mean establishing some new routines, transforming your roles, or the two of you moving on separately. The arc of the Moon this week through Virgo, Libra, and Scorpio would say you’ve already tried pretty hard to fix the situation, so maybe it’s just time to go? If you’re convinced that some future event you’ve been looking forward to must transpire before any change is possible, Mr. Saturn would simply respond, “How much is your quality of life suffering in the meantime?

Cancer- With Mr. Saturn in your House of Health challenging Neptune in your House of Philosophy maybe it’s time to realize that all your worrying and stress is slapping you around but good! Must you always feel it’s your fault when someone close to you makes a mistake? Stop using your loved ones as an excuse not to deal with the roots of your own fears and anxieties. With Uranus in your Public Sector there is a lot going on now beyond your control. Deal with what you can and let the rest go for the time being. Jupiter in your House of Home and Family is currently protecting you, but the question Mr. Saturn is writing on the wall is, “Do you think you deserve it?”

Leo- Mr. Saturn sometimes likes to role-play and his character this week is going to be your boss at work. What costume will you put on for this game….a revolutionary, a slave, or a free person? With a stellium of Planets currently in your House of Self Worth conspiring with Pluto in the House of Work, it’s time to reconsider how hard you should have to try in order to be appreciated. The Moon in Libra mid-week will contact benevolent Jupiter and hopefully those two can convince you to value yourself regardless of what anyone else does. When the Moon enters Scorpio over the weekend you’ll hear from Mr. Saturn when he asks, “Hey there Mr. King of the Jungle, Are you just going to complain about the situation or are you going to do something about it?

Virgo- With 5 major planets in your sign at the beginning of the week you’re really feeling your oats, but what’s your focus? Have you ever heard the expression “giving your power away?” Stop looking at the pursuit of your dreams like a lottery where the percentages are always against you. Uranus opposing Jupiter in your House of Self Worth may be making it seem like what you want is out of your control, but as Mr. Saturn always likes to sing to himself when the going gets tough, “The harder they come, the harder they fall, one and all!”

Libra- In Zen the Mind is referred to as “The Chattering Monkey”. With 5 planets currently in your House of The Inner Self that Monkey is literally screaming it’s head off trying to orchestrate all your inner thoughts into some kind of coherent strategy. The New Moon in Virgo mid-week will offer an outlet for all this mental activity as it squares Mr. Saturn in your House of Writing. Maybe all these new thoughts you’re having require a new you as well? Here’s a haiku Mr. Saturn has written with that new you in mind;

The most difficult

Place on earth to escape from

Is the jail of “I”

Scorpio- Your life may seem to be in order (or at least under control within your comfort zone) but what do you want? You realize things could be better and you are quite capable at whatever you try to do, nevertheless you are hesitant to break out creatively and take a risk on yourself. When will you finally get sick of working for people who should be working for you? The arc of the Moon this week will pass through your House of Dreams and House of Confinement before it crosses over the horizon and enters Scorpio. Mr. Saturn, the famous critic, feels that the Moon’s path in your chart is symbolic of the proverbial Phoenix rising from the ashes. What do you think?

Sagittarius- Early in the week a New Moon along with 3 other major planets will be in your House of Public Image, all of them generally opposing Neptune in the House of Home and Family. This will occur on the Virgo-Pisces axis, which is the line in the Zodiac between the real and imagined. Whatever you think you want from life at this time, just make sure you’re not doing it just to satisfy (or rebel against) what others may expect of you. As the Moon enters Scorpio over the weekend you’ll probably want to either pull away or lash out, just don’t expect that bottle you’re nipping at behind Mr. Saturn’s back to provide you with any real escape.

Capricorn- Jupiter in your public sector and Mr. Saturn behind the scenes are causing difficulties in making up your mind about some recent choices. This has been a time of great change and with the current influx of planets into Virgo you are probably unfairly criticizing everything in your life before anything has a chance to really unfold. The best thing you can probably do now is to utilize a Moon-Neptune aspect over the coming weekend and take the time to nurture yourself. Consider visiting a spa or taking a Spiritual Retreat. Even Mr. Saturn likes to hear a friendly “Namaste” from time to time.

Aquarius- Mr. Saturn say’s, “Be careful what you wish for.” As a fixed air sign you are more vulnerable to illusion than most, simply because air is meant to move and fixing it in a vacuum is an artificial contrivance no matter how perfect the notion of a vacuum may seem. You are looking for control over your daily environment but at what cost? The New Moon in Virgo at the beginning of the week will drive your insecurities, so by the time a Scorpio Moon and Neptune meet over the weekend you will have justified to yourself whatever you feel is necessary to accomplish your “Manifest Destiny”. By month’s end when Mercury enters Libra we’ll see if your calculations have been correct.

Pisces- With Neptune in your sign the fog has descended all around, so make sure that what you think you see in the distance is what it appears to be. Money is an issue at this time as Jupiter and Uranus challenge you to choose between responsibility and luxury when juggling your expenses. Venus entering Virgo could reveal a dangerous naiveté regarding the resources you are assuming you have. A new love interest may actually be more calculating than you are, but in all this fog Mr. Saturn just thinks it’s a case of “dumb and dumber” with both of you blinded by your own selfishness. Be careful nonetheless.
