Mr. Saturn’s Stars #91 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/8-7/14, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/8-7/14, 2019

 

 Aries- With 5 retrograde planets this week things could very well seem a little bass-akwards, if you know what I mean?  Mercury gong in reverse in your House of Creativity and the dramatic sign of Leo as well as Jupiter in your House of Publishing could see a long-term project delayed by some minor snafu’s, which could annoy you to no end. Meanwhile, Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Career will be saying exactly what you’d expect to hear from them, namely “be patient, blah, blah, blah….” To add to the stress Neptune behind the scenes will no doubt be fear mongering that the difficulties will never end. The final coup de grace will come though when the Moon transits through the Via Combusta to oppose crazy old Uranus in your House of Self Worth while Mars in turn squares the old man…….A word to the wise, It’s always darkest before the dawn. If you have a hard time accepting that then try washing it down with a drink (or five)…..What can I say?

 

Taurus- Rebellious Uranus is in your sign now and he’s going to be squared this week by arrogant Mars in Leo. Add to that 5 retrograde planets (including mischievous Mercury) as well as the Sun and Venus in sensitive Cancer and you may just be finding yourself whispering under your breath, “There’s no place like home,” and subconsciously tapping your heels together out of desperation. Of course it’s not that bad, but we all know that reality is a lot about attitude and if you’re feeling that nothing is making sense and everything is against you then you will likely end up reaping that whirlwind!  Jupiter in your House of Transformation moving into an esoteric inconjunct with Venus in your House of Communication could bring some unexpected good news based on something you did at the beginning of the year that is offering a much needed dividend now……..The Universe works in mysterious ways so try not to buy too much into the necessary smoke and mirrors of what seems to be happening……..Faith is an exercise, not a fact.

 

Gemini- There are going to be 5 planets spinning retrograde this week; 2 are in your House of Transformation, 1 in your House of Communication, 1 in your House of Partnerships, and 1 in your House of Public Image……What does this all mean? If there is a paper trail (or even a trail of stale breadcrumbs) connecting you to any shady people or shady dealings from the past the time may have arrived for the chickens to come home to roost. Mars, the planet of action, will be in your House of Communication along with Mercury retrograde, so try to stop the urge to double down on your denials if you’ve been caught dead to rights. Trying to spin the facts or transfer the blame could blow up in your face if you’re not careful. The best strategy for now would be to accept what’s happening and let the Sun and Venus in compassionate Cancer help you to seek out assistance behind the scenes, that is, if anyone is still taking your calls.

 

Cancer- As 5 planets go retrograde this week you may find yourself taking more than one stroll down memory lane and thinking about things you haven’t thought about in years. Saturn and Pluto going backwards in your House of Relationships could see you reminiscing about how you met a loved one and realizing how damn lucky you are that you did. Mercury reversing in your House of Self Worth and joining with Mars will likely activate your pride as you review how you arrived at wherever you are in your job as well as how you’re going to eventually get the hell out of there.  On a more positive note, Jupiter in your House of Health esoterically aligning with Venus in your sign will have you realizing the need to change some aspects of your lifestyle if you would hope to operate at your highest performance level in the future. All in all this should be a week where you will get some encouraging glimpses of the future along with finally seeing the truth of certain things you have worried about in the past (which you didn’t need to).

 

Leo- Mercury is retrograde now in your sign and as he joins with Mars to square rebellious Uranus in your House of Career you could experience some real catharsis this week regarding both your career and how you think of yourself. Uranus in turn will be aligning with Venus behind the scenes in the emotional sign of Cancer, likely helping you realize how much of your shyness about your feelings is more about you judging yourself than others judging you. Combine this with Jupiter in your House of Creativity squaring Neptune in your House of Transformation and it should become obvious that you’ve never really given yourself a chance to show what you can do in regards to a dream you have kept secret for a while. As Saturn and Pluto continue retrograde in your House of Work it is important that you confront your confidence issues ASAP because as soon as these two transformative planets go direct it will be time to leave the womb you have allowed yourself to hide in for far too long.

 

Virgo- As Mercury retrograde and Mars crash into each other behind the scenes in your chart and square iconoclastic Uranus in your House of Career, you may not be able to swallow your pride any longer when it comes to someone taking advantage of you either at work or in a serious relationship. With Neptune transiting your House of Partnerships and aligning with both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Creativity you’ve been able to justify your subservience with this person so far in regards to eventually getting ahead, however, if you haven’t yet advanced with this strategy then it’s high time for you to show what you can do on your own and stop treating this individual with kid gloves. The Sun and Venus coming together in the nurturing sign of Cancer and your House of Dreams is all about believing in yourself and inspiring others to do the same, which would mean getting out from under any shadows being cast over you and instead be willing to try and shine on your own.

 

Libra- What represents an honest expression for you of something you’ve experienced might raise a little controversy among those who are less imaginative and insightful. Mars and Mercury retrograde will be conjunct in your House of Groups and squaring individualistic Uranus in your House of Transformation, which means by expressing a cathartic moment from your past you might inadvertently end up pressing the buttons for some current fears that exist for anyone who hasn’t been willing to face themselves in the mirror. This may lead to some uncomfortable moments (for them) but perhaps cooler heads will prevail and someone will recognize you’ve actually hit on something universal.  Jupiter in your House of Writing inconjuncting Venus in your House of Career may actually find you a champion once the nervous nellies are done having their moment and what you created can be seen for what it really is.

 

Scorpio- With 5 planets retrograde this week it might be a good time for you to recap how your year has gone so far along with what might lay in store as a result. Mercury retrograde and Mars in your House of Public Image squaring Uranus in your House of Relationships will likely bring some surprises, especially in how you think of yourself in the face of so many people recently saying such nice things to you and/or about you to others. The Sun and Venus together in your House of Philosophy represent the emergence of a new sense of belonging and compassion in your life as you now seek to connect with people when in the past you probably tried to avoid public interaction like the plague.  Saturn and Pluto in your House of Communication for the last year would have shut most people down, but oddly enough it has had the opposite effect on you. I guess all you ready needed Mr/Ms Scorpio to bring you out of your isolation was a little death and resurrection action. Welcome back to life!

 

Sagittarius- As Mercury retrograde and Mars collide in your House of Philosophy and square irrational Uranus in your House of Work, you may be brought to a harsh realization about just how bat shit crazy someone at work is and that you can no longer give them the benefit of the doubt. The Sun and Venus together in your House of Transformation would indicate that any changes for you now should have the proper support and assistance so that you will be able to move on successfully from any past conflicts. On the other hand, with Saturn and Pluto still digging graves in your House of Self Worth, make sure you are actively trying to let go of any past fears or else you may find yourself recreating the same old shit in a new location.  As the Moon passes out from the shadows of Scorpio later in the week and enters your sign you should experience a nice little buzz, like that first glass of wine after a hard day…….Cheers……You deserve it.

 

Capricorn- Saturn and Pluto are still working backwards in your sign, plus there are 3 other retrograde planets in your Houses of Confinement, Communication, and Transformation. My advice? If you have any vacation time, take it; have some drinks and let the shit show pass, if you can. Uranus will be making a long-term transit in your House of Creativity, so rest assured that opportunities and ideas will crop up to shake the tree and bring down some unexpected fruit, just don’t think about luck either way and let yourself be surprised when it pinches you on the ass. Kind of like Ringo getting invited into the Beatles……Get it? After all, you’re also going to be having the Sun and Venus passing through your House of Partnerships and the nurturing sign of Cancer, meaning that all this shit over the last few months has been for a reason, if only for you to know that you’re worthy of redemption……..Amen.

 

Aquarius- Uranus passing through your House of Home and Foundations could be either a blessing or a curse and you won’t know until something happens. Mercury retrograde and Mars passing now through your House of Relationships and the proud sign of Leo are about communication and respect as well as you getting quite grumpy if you’re not being treated the way you’d like. The bad news is that this could mean conflict with a family member, but the good news is that this person may very well deserve to have you rip them a new orifice and it will likely be quite cathartic for you to do it! Jupiter retrograde squaring Neptune retrograde in your House of Self Worth may represent the resultant epiphany regarding how this individual played on your inherent niceness as well as how you can now play with their emotions by pointing out that they’ve always been a miserable shit regardless if you did anything or not. So, didn’t that feel good? Ha ha, I thought so…..Now treat yourself to something nice, you deserve it.

 

Pisces- As the Sun and Venus in your House of Romance and Creativity pull into a luxurious trine with Neptune in your sign you may find yourself caught up in a glamorous setting that isn’t as real (or profitable) as you believe. The wake up call about this could come from Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career squaring Neptune or else erratic Uranus in your House of Communication entering into a hard angle with Mercury retrograde and Mars in your House of Routines. Either way this will be pretty much a textbook disappointment caused by over inflated expectations in turn fueled by someone else willing to lead you on. On the other hand, the good news is that this fiasco will end up freeing you from your naive illusions so that you can instead get down to some real activities that will allow you to actually accomplish something for yourself.  As they say, if the world serves you lemons then make lemonade…….Cheers!

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #49 Weekly Horoscopes for 8/20-8/26, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 8/20-8/26, 2018

 

Inertia; “The resistance of any physical object to any change in its position and state of motion. This includes changes to the object’s speed, direction, or state of rest.”

 

Hi kids!!! We have 5 retrograde planets and 3 major inconjuncts this week, so after you read your horoscope if you’re still impatient about what’s not happening in your life, refer to the above definition…. Que sera sera……

 

Aries- Venus transiting through your House of Relationships might have you feeling a little more amorous than usual, however, since she inconjuncts Neptune behind the scenes and squares Pluto in your House of Public Image, hold off on any crushes or hit and runs for the time being. The Sun in your House of Romance inconjunct Mars retrograde in your House of Career would also indicate you should probably avoid any work place romances as well; in short, let this Venus transit be about friendship and camaraderie rather than anything epic, like say, Doctor Zhivago or Boogie Nights. If you don’t believe me and insist on being either Don Juan or Juanita, don’t be surprised if Jupiter in your House of Intimacy squaring Mercury in  your House of Romance shows you just how thin the line is that separates love and hate……just sayin’.

 

Taurus- If you’re not being treated the way you think you deserve in either a romantic or professional partnership, this could be the week when the matador loses the bullfight. Jupiter in your House of Relationships is squaring Mercury in your House of Foundations, so don’t hesitate to speak your mind if you’re feeling agitated and you just might finally get through to that “special” person who’s just doesn’t seem to get it. You are no one’s option and with Uranus in your sign you might just end up being someone’s headache; a word to the wise! The Sun will be entering your House of Romance later in the week, and when he does he’ll be forming a Grand Trine with Uranus as well as Saturn retrograde in your House of Philosophy, meaning don’t hesitate to kick to the curb anyone who disrespects your heart (or any other part of you for that matter). Love begins at home with “y-o-u.”

 

Gemini- You may have your eye on someone this week but try not to be too easy if you can help it. Venus in your House of Romance inconjunct Neptune in your House of Communication would indicate that if you can be fooled, you will, so be careful. Mr. Saturn has a saying you might benefit from and it goes, “I’ve never had my heart broken, but I’ve dropped it a few times.” Hopefully, a word to the wise on this will be sufficient. Venus squaring Pluto in your House of Sex and Intimacy could make you an unpleasant customer if you should get your feelings hurt, so make sure you have an attorney on speed dial and plenty of bail money, Uranus behind the scenes in your chart could end up with shit get crazy real quick.

 

Cancer- Venus is passing through your House of Home and Symbolic Foundations, so it may be high time for you to stop trying to fix the world and instead bring some of that “Good Lovin’” of yours on home to hubby or wifey. Neptune in your House of Philosophy is about amore, but seeing as the King of the Sea is inconjunct Venus, perhaps it means that you’ve been taking a significant other for granted and they deserve better, especially with Venus also squaring Pluto in your House of Romance. Try to make sure that sparks of passion don’t inadvertantly erupt into a crime of passion because they’re all fired up with nowhere to go; just sayin’, take it on advisement. Instead, why don’t you listen to Uranus in your House of Dreams aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Realtionships, as they suggest perhaps coming up with a little surprise to add some spice to that good home cookin’ you and your significant other just love to share. Bon appetite!!!

 

Leo- With Neptune in your House of Transformation inconjunct both Venus in your House of Communication and Mercury in your sign, your dialogues with others (or lack thereof) will be of paramount importance now. Jupiter in your House of Foundation squaring Mercury could make it very easy for you to be misunderstood, especially if you choose to monologue at people rather than dialogue as mentioned above. Uranus retrograde in your House of Public Image aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Work could require you to walk back a pronouncement you made in the past that was either misconstrued or just badly expressed, take the time to do it, especially with the Sun entering Virgo later in the week to form a Grand Trine with Uranus and Saturn; your humility and willingness to admit you were wrong will have a surprising effect at galvanizing public trust in your favor. What originally came out bad could end up good.

 

Virgo- It is very important now to clearly express how you feel about someone so they don’t assume your silence or shyness is indifference, or worse, some kind of subtle criticism. This is because Neptune in a double inconjunct to both Venus in your House of Self Worth and Mercury behind the scenes will likely make it very easy for any lack of confidence you might be feeling to appear as if it’s an unsatisfactory judgment of someone else. The Sun entering your sign midweek will subsequently form a Grand Trine with both Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity and Uranus retrograde in your House of Philosophy, meaning that any risks you are willing to take to express yourself now could yield some quite surprising dividends; be willing to push your comfort zone as vulnerability and honesty could really be your forte right now. Hell, you might even be a poet and don’t know it!

 

Libra- With Mars in your House of Foundation inconjunct to the Sun in your House of Dreams, a very valuable lesson may await you this week in the mostly unlikely place or under the most unexpected circumstances. Neptune in your House of Work inconjunct to both Venus in your sign and Mercury in your House of Groups could likely provide you with some real significant insights if you’re could just manage to shut up for once instead of always needing to point out some injustice or other. Acceptance is a great form of spiritual insight when it allows one to see something clearly for what it is, no matter how you may feel about it one way or the other. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth will be aligning nicely with Neptune, and this will likely refer to how the lesson previously mentioned will truly make you wise, that is, if you’re willing to go with the flow.

 

“The only wisdom we can hope to acquire

Is the wisdom of humility; humility is endless.”

-T.S. Eliot

 

Scorpio- Neptune in your House of Romance inconjunct to both Mercury in your House of Public Image and Venus behind the scenes could see you surprising someone by your interest in them. After all, an intense knockout like you wouldn’t be expected to have a crush, most folks would just assume you crush the world on a daily basis with that smoldering charisma of yours. The truth however, is that you’re a mushy little romantic just like everyone else, who is susceptible to embarrassing obsessions and wondering if Mr. or Ms. Fabulous even notices you. Uranus retrograde in your House of Relationships aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Communication could be like a cat that’s got your tongue, but don’t worry, quite often it’s the look of love rather than small talk that say’s it all; and you got a patent on that kind of intensity! As the song goes;

 

“The look of love

Is saying so much more than

Just words could ever say

And what my heart has heard

Well it takes my breath away”

 

Sagittarius- The Sun in your House of Philosophy is inspiring you to imagine a better situation for yourself, although an inconjunct of the Sun to Mars in your House of Self Worth is leaving you feeling a little depressed about how to actually get to such a place. Some additional inconjuncts between Neptune in your House of Home and Family with both Venus in your House of Dreams and Mercury in your House of Philosophy could possibly offer some valuable insights here, but only if you’re willing to honestly acknowledge how your family relationships (or lack thereof) have established the foundations for whatever it is you currently believe about yourself. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth aligning with Uranus retrograde and the Sun entering your House of Public Image can certainly help now with breaking any unhealthy patterns you may have, although it will probably be Jupiter in your House of Secrets aligning with Neptune who’ll be asking the really important question when you are challenged with, “Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?” What’s your answer?

 

Capricorn- If you think telling someone what they want to hear as opposed to telling the truth will solve a current problem at work, you’ll soon learn otherwise as Venus in your House of Career inconjuncts Neptune in your House of Communication and The Sun in your House of Transformation inconjuncts Mars retrograde in your sign. If it isn’t pointed out that the current problem is the fault of the person who caused it, then it will have to be somebody’s, just be careful you’re not elected as the scapegoat. As the Sun moves into your House of Philosophy later in the week, he’ll be aligning beautifully with both Saturn retrograde in your sign, and Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity, meaning that if you had the stones to speak the truth to the pompous buffoon that was trying to palm off excuses, then the chickens will certainly be going home to roost; but it won’t be your address they’ll be going to. Stay honest, stay strong, stay safe!

 

Aquarius- You may start out the week believing what you want to believe, especially with Venus in your House of Philosophy inconjunct Neptune in your House of Self Worth. The only problem is, with the Sun in your House of Relationships inconjunct Mars behind the scenes, there will also be someone keeping score on the situation and they may not necessarily be a fan of you or what you believe is true. Jupiter in your House of Public Image will also be aligning with Neptune, which could help you dodge a bullet by smelling the poo before you put your foot in it, especially if you can hold on until the Sun crosses into your House of Transformation and aligns with Uranus retrograde in your House of Foundations and Saturn retrograde behind the scenes. Everyone makes errors in judgment at some point, but not everyone can walk it back into a coup d’e tat that makes their initial ill informed illusion look like a stroke of genius, congratulations.

 

Pisces- Neptune in your sign inconjunct Venus in your House of Transformation may have you doubting your ability to meet a new challenge, yet at the same time, the Sun in your House of Work inconjunct Mars retrograde in your House of Dreams won’t let you just sit back and give up. What to do? At this point enter Jupiter in your House of Philosophy to lead the cheering section and amp up the inspirational rhetoric, while at the same time the Sun entering the sign of Virgo will form an earthy Grand Trine with Uranus and Saturn, a trio of badass mercenaries representing all the “Lawyers, Guns, and Money” you’ll need. Can you hear the bugle cry of the cavalry coming to the rescue yet? When the Full Moon arrives in your sign at the end of the week you’ll probably be feeling a lot less stressed. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good, and this week will be one of those times.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #46 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/30-8/5, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/30-8/5, 2018

 

  • It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

                                                                   –Charles Dickens “A Tale of Two Cities”

 

Aries- As the Moon enters your sign in the middle of the week and aligns with Mars, ambition will be at the top of your agenda, although discretion may actually be the better part of valor for you right now as Mars is retrograde in your House of Dreams and it squares unpredictable Uranus in your House of Self Worth. There will be a lot of chaotic energy flying around out there now and though it would be easy to get caught up in it and feel a desire to push matters, perhaps it would be wiser to hunker down and let the storm blow out, especially with 5 retrograde planets (including Mercury) creating a vortex of inertia beyond your control. If you’re set on a goal, go after it this week as though you were fishing rather than running the 100-yard dash and you might just end up alright.

 

Taurus- Your patience could be severely tested this week as a combination of unpredictable Uranus in your sign and Mars retrograde in your House of Public Image enter into a volatile square. Demands made upon your time and sanity by clients or associates who could really care less whether or not you are being inconvenienced could put you in a bad place if you let it, so don’t let it! Jupiter in your House of Relationships will have you feeling like you need to be all things to all people, but you can’t, so don’t try. There are 5 retrograde planets now so if someone you’re dealing with has visions of manifest destiny, let them knock themselves out trying to contradict Mother Nature or some other such nonsense, just make sure they don’t knock you out as well.

 

Gemini- Trying to unreasonably push ahead an agenda now could result in a complete disaster, especially if you think that mendacity and bullying are the way to go. Uranus in your House of Confinement would indicate that there are forces marshaling against you behind the scenes, while Mars retrograde in your House of Philosophy squaring Uranus means that these forces are likely more formidable than you realize and could deliver you a rather unpleasant surprise. Mercury retrograde in your House of Communication and the sign of Leo represents a further warning that it might just be better to shut up now than running your mouth as you customarily do, after all “loose lips sink ships”……think about it.

 

Cancer- Mercury retrograde in your House of Self Worth moving into an inconjunct with Pluto retrograde in your House of Relationships (and Open Enemies) is giving you a valuable tidbit of info now that you should take the time to contemplate. Especially since Mars retrograde in your House of Transformation is about to enter into an explosive square with Uranus in your House of Groups. Some interesting information about a former adversary could fall into your hands that would be extremely damaging to this person if it were to get out. What you do with this newfound intelligence should not be decided either emotionally or ethically, but rather strategically. What goes around comes around and maybe it’s time for the injustices that were done to you to be corrected. As the Sun moves into a Square with Jupiter in your House of Creativity try to curb any dramatic or self-righteous urges to avenge yourself, instead remember the old Sicilian proverb, “Revenge is a dish best served cold.”

 

Leo- Mars retrograde in your House of Relationships (and Open Enemies) is about to enter into a violent square with Uranus in your House of Public Image. Someone is looking to shoot you down and they don’t much care how they do it. Mercury retrograde in your sign inconjunct Pluto retrograde in your House of Work could mean that the attack against you could come via the rumor mill, so be careful who you share your business with. There are 5 retrograde planets now (including Mars, the Planet of War) meaning that any offensives embarked upon now will likely fail, although the old cliché that the best offense is a good defense would be a prudent strategy at this time.

 

Virgo- If you find that weird events are disrupting your daily routines then perhaps these routines are really control issues that are preventing you from growing. Uranus in your House of Philosophy will be urging you to bust out of the box, while Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity will start to systematically show you what isn’t working anymore, not to drive you crazy, but rather to set you free. Mars retrograde in your House of Work likely represents the old you that needed approval before you’d do anything, while the previously mentioned Uranus squaring Mars is the new you that don’t need shit from shinola except the room to go where you want to. As the song goes, “You gotta make your own kind of music, sing your own special song, make your own kind of music, even if no one else sings along.” Word!

Libra- Saturn retrograde in your House of Symbolic Foundations has been shaking you up at your very core for a while now, so with Uranus in your House of Transformation aligning with Mr. Saturn as well as squaring Mars retrograde in your House of Creativity, it is important at this time to follow your creative urges wherever they may lead. You are in that rare zone now that is alternately frightening, unnerving, exhilarating, and revolutionary and it’s your destiny that you should take it to the limit! For the next 3 weeks Mercury retrograde in your House of Dreams will provide the insight necessary to put any ideas you have been working on into the best package possible, so get back to the drawing board and let this revolutionary new work you’re doing tell you what it needs. You’re nurturing a baby now, so be kind to it…..and yourself.

 

Scorpio-Your relationships with your siblings could be about to change in ways that might seem extreme, although important changes in our lives often seem a little daunting at first. Mars retrograde in your House of Home squaring Uranus in your House of Relationships could mean these changes will likely stem from some sort of crisis, and with Saturn retrograde in your House of Communications also involved, whatever this unexpected happening is, it will require everyone to step up in one way or another beyond what they’re usually comfortable with. Jupiter in your sign will undoubtedly have you taking the lead (whether you want to or not) and as the King of the Planets aligns with Neptune in your House of Creativity, this could just be you acting out a sense memory from a past life when you were the one in charge of these yokels. Let your soul remember and everything should  be fine.

 

Sagittarius- How much is enough? You may find that you’re asking yourself that question this week as lunatic Uranus in your House of Work squares Mars retrograde in your House of Communications and you realize that your job is making you feel like a donkey pulling an oversize cart, complete with being whipped, screamed at, and exploited for the whole nine yards. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth may have you feeling there’s a reason to put up with this, but if so, what could the reward possibly be and when is it coming? Jupiter behind the scenes aligning with Neptune retrograde in your House of Symbolic Foundations would suggest your subservience is a worthiness issue, essentially meaning that if you’re smarter than your boss (and you certainly are) why don’t you SERIOUSLY start looking for another situation where you talents will be appreciated and respected instead of being treated like shit (or worse, not even considered)? “Mistreat me once, shame on you. Mistreat me twice, shame on me.”

 

Capricorn- Just like the old Jefferson Airplane song went, “Up against the wall, motherf*cker…. tear down the wall,” it’s time this week for you to pushback against whatever is cornering you, either at work, play, or on the battlefield of your inner emotional landscape. Mars retrograde in your House of Self Worth is squaring Uranus in your House of Creativity, which would speak to an explosion of desires and ideas, especially if your daily routines as of late have been more about what others need than what you need. With Saturn retrograde in your sign, as well as 3 other retrograde planets in the lower half of your chart, the focus of energy at this time needs to be on your personal spiritual evolution. Add to this Mercury retrograde in your House of Transformation, and it would be fair to say the time has come for a cathartic reordering of your priorities and an acceptance of how your circumstances need to change to accommodate this. “BREAK ON THROUGH TO THE OTHER SIDE!”

 

Aquarius- Having Mars retrograde in your sign and squaring Uranus in your House of Symbolic Foundations could make this one of the most frustrating weeks you have experienced in a long time. Your usually independent and innovative nature is going to be challenged by weirdness, inconvenience, uncooperative people, and just overall bullshit in general from nearly every quarter. Mercury retrograde in your House of Relationships will be moving into an inconjunct with Pluto retrograde behind the scenes, meaning you should pay close attention to who is there for you during this time and who isn’t. Remember the old proverb, “Action talks and bullshit walks” and you’ll learn a very valuable lesson about who your friends are. On an up note, Jupiter aligning nicely with Neptune in your House of Earnings should help you find your center and hopefully some unexpected solutions. “Keep the faith, baby.”

 

Pisces- Your patience and faith in someone is admirable, although what will it take before you realize your loyalty is unfounded? Mars retrograde behind the scenes squaring Uranus in your House of Communications has you bending over backwards in a situation that just might snap you in half if you’re not careful. You are in a situation where time is of the essence, however, with Mercury retrograde in your House of Maintenance inconjunct Pluto retrograde in your House of Dreams, the writing on the wall is clearly showing you may very well run out of track on this journey. Someone else’s incompetence may be the immediate cause here, but your inability to put your foot down when there was still time to do something else will likely turn out to be the real mistake here. With Jupiter in your House of Philosophy aligning with Neptune in your sign, you should give a listen to the Alice Cooper song, “No More Mister Nice Guy”…..it’s a lesson you need to learn.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #45 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/23-7/29, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/23-7/29, 2018

 

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

It will be quite eventful in the heavens this week, as the Sun enters Leo, Mercury goes station/retrograde, a Full Moon conjuncts Mars, and there will be 5 (count ‘em 5) retrograde planets. All in all things look to be shaping up into a real Astrogenous Zone…..are you excited yet?

 

Aries- You’ll be feeling a real strong urge to rebel this week, just make sure you don’t end up biting off your nose to spite your face. With the Sun entering fiery Leo to oppose a Full Moon conjunct Mars retrograde and square crazy Uranus, you will be in no mood to hear shit from anyone. In the meantime, the fact that there are five retrograde planets (including Mercury) will probably have you feeling like you’ve been shackled to the nowheresville express, especially regarding a project that your collaborators seem to be dragging their feet on. Even though you may be beyond frustrated with the world, keep in mind that Jupiter and Venus are currently in aspect and with those two around there’s always hope, so just keep doing what you do and don’t deny yourself some play time…..Happy Hour anyone?

 

Taurus- With Uranus in your sign squaring a Full Moon conjunct Mars retrograde, the possibility of another delay in a job project or in your overall career could very well push you over the edge this week. Mr. Saturn’s only suggestion would be if you’re going to take a dive make sure it’s into a pool (or the ocean). The fact that there are five retrograde planets at this time (including Mercury) will probably reduce the likelihood to less than zero of anything moving forward, although that doesn’t necessarily mean that things have to move backwards. Jupiter in your House of Relationships balancing out a Venus/Neptune opposition could make this the perfect time to revisit an old flame that never quite got the kindling it deserved, or else try stoking the fires of a potential new flame! Either way, take advantage of this forced vacation to stop and smell the roses, you’ll be glad you did.

 

Gemini- The Sun entering your House of Communication will likely have you feeling all blustery and oratorical this week, although with a combination of Mercury going station/retrograde, the Full Moon conjunct Mars retrograde, and Uranus being squared behind the scenes, you might end up experiencing some horrific blowback if you’re not careful about what you let escape out of your pie hole. Jupiter aligning nicely with Venus in Virginal Virgo would indicate that if you can just mind your manners and manage to be seen and not heard any more than usual, you could end up dodging a bullet. In other words, try not to spout off and make yourself an obvious target. Saturn retrograde in your House of Transformation will continue to hold back some vital resources from you, but look at it this way, perhaps showing you can keep your mouth shut right now might just be the test that Saturn needed to see you pass. Hush, hush Sweet Charlotte.

 

Cancer- Much (if not all) of your patience with loved ones is due to your extreme sensitivity to their needs, which could be severely tested this week, so be careful that the train doesn’t go off the tracks. The Full Moon conjunct Mars retrograde in your House of Joint Resources will be opposing a Leo Sun in your House of Self Worth and squaring Uranus in your House of Dreams, meaning a request for help at this time may just require a pound of flesh that for once you’re not willing to sacrifice. If you can weather your initial guilt about putting your interests before someone who is undoubtedly putting their interests before yours, then you just might be able to hear your Guardian Angel cheering “Good for you!!!” With five retrograde planets this week (including Mercury retrograde) don’t hesitate to go back down memory lane and remember how certain people have taken advantage of you in the past, that way when the tears come to your eyes for having to say “no” to them, you’ll experience it as tears of joy for finally putting yourself first and not feeling guilty about it!

 

Leo- With the Sun entering your sign this week you should get a nice jolt of energy, and you’ll need it. A Full Moon conjuncting Mars retrograde in your House of Relationships and squaring Uranus in your House of Public Image could see you as the focus of some serious weirdness on the part of a friend or lover. Your natural charisma can sometimes make you seem larger than life, which unfortunately makes other people feel less; of course that’s not your fault, but with that Mars/Uranus square to egg the crazies on, watch out! Your saving grace in the face of any potential difficulties now will likely be provided by Jupiter in your House of Home aligning with Venus in your House of Self Worth, who together are known as “The Benefics,” or bringers of good fortune. Your willingness to make amends is intrinsic to your noble nature, just don’t let someone else’s problem turn into yours if you don’t have to. Mercury retrograde in your sign could reveal a dirty little secret about someone you’d never have suspected….pay attention!!!

 

Virgo- Venus in your sign is “The Virgin” and while everyone wants to possess a Virgin’s purity, who will stand up for her freedom and right to self-determination? With Jupiter aligning with her from your House of Communication, that just might have to be you. The Full Moon this week will join with Mars retrograde to oppose the Sun behind the scenes and square Uranus in your House of Philosophy, meaning that you might just be ready to upset the apple cart and set the whole shithouse on fire if anyone tries to tell you what you should think, or worse, what you can’t do!!! Mercury retrograde behind the scenes in the fiery sign of Leo will be the cheerleader you’ll need to help you remember all those times when you were pushed around and caved in to the needs of others, while Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity will be instrumental in helping you to restructure a new foundation for yourself without needing anyone around to give you any stinkin’ permission. “The times they are a changin’.”

 

Libra- The Full Moon conjunct Mars retrograde will be in your House of Creativity, where it will square Uranus in your House of Transformation. If you are involved in a creative project at this time be prepared to surrender and let the work guide you, rather than trying to exercise control over something new that is trying to emerge from deep inside your subconscious. A catharsis is at hand and Jupiter in your House of Self Worth aligning with Venus behind the scenes would indicate that you’re every bit up to it, that is, if you can listen to Neptune in your House of Routines telling you to “breathe” and “let go.” Mercury retrograde in your House of Dreams will only last a few weeks, make sure to take that time to review (and hopefully better understand) your original inspiration that began this path you’re currently on. Ask the Muse for some clarity, you’ll be glad you did!

 

Scorpio- Your responsibilities to a friend or partner could become quite oppressive for you now, especially with Uranus in your House of Relationships squaring the Full Moon axis as it conjuncts Mars retrograde in your House of Foundations. For a long time you’ve tried to avoid this confrontation, but your ability to put up with dishonesty and/or incompetence has reached its breaking point. Jupiter in your sign aligning with Venus could provide the antidote for this situation; not to help you fix it, but rather to offer a way out, either to a different situation or to an entirely new allegiance with someone who’s more your type. During this time of transition, Mercury retrograde in your House of Public Image will effectively serve to hold up a mirror so you can see for yourself what the world sees when it looks at you. Pay attention to these insights being offered, as they will no doubt be extremely helpful in making sure you don’t end up recreating your old situation with a new cast of characters.

 

Sagittarius- As the Sun enters the fiery sign of Leo in your House of Philosophy, it will oppose the Full Moon conjunct Mars retrograde in your House of Communication. This testy opposition will in turn be offset by a square to explosive and unpredictable Uranus in your House of Work and Routines, which could mean that you’re about to be smoked yet again by the blowback from doing the same thing over and over (either at home or at work) and expecting a different result. Jupiter behind the scenes is plotting like an underground revolutionary to free you from this madness, yet the propaganda of illusory Neptune opposing the servile mentality of Venus in Virgo could end up leaving your brave liberator swinging in the wind. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth may ultimately be what turns the tide here, as his gravitas and unimpeachable respectability ultimately helps you to realize, “Shit, I’m really unhappy and I need to do something different….” Duh!

 

Capricorn- All the things you haven’t been doing for yourself will likely become squeaky wheels this week (or even unexpected explosions) as the Full Moon conjuncts Mars retrograde in your House of Self Worth and opposes the Sun entering Leo in your House of Transformation. Unpredictable Uranus will then, in turn, square both ends of this opposition from your House of Fun and Creativity, which is exactly what you’ve probably been denying yourself while keeping your nose to Saturn retrogrades proverbial grindstone as he sits stoically in your sign like a factory foreman overseeing you. Jupiter in your House of Groups aligning with Venus in your House of Philosophy will try to suggest that you should get out more, although with Neptune in your House of Thinking you might just let guilt win the day and stay in the sweatshop with exacting old Mr. Saturn. Don’t!!!

 

Aquarius- The emotional Full Moon this week will be in your sign conjunct Mars retrograde, which will likely make you want to come clean about anything that’s bothering you. The Sun in Leo in your House of Relationships opposing this Full Moon and squaring Uranus will likely make whatever you say more of an exercise in ego than anything else, although with Jupiter in your House of Public Image aligning with Venus in your House of Transformation, you’ll probably have people believing you anyway. Mercury retrograde in your House of Relationships should add to this by giving you the necessary eloquence to effectively walk back whatever you need to, although Saturn retrograde in your House of Secrets would calmly suggest that if you really want to make amends, simply shut up and start behaving differently, like for instance try being a little more humble; saying you’re sorry should never be a performance.

 

Pisces- Work could be an issue this week, especially if you feel like an employer is taking advantage of you. The Full Moon conjunct Mars retrograde will be in your House of Confinement and it will alternately oppose the Sun in your House of Work and square volatile Uranus in your House of Communication, meaning that you’ve probably been storing up injustices for a while now and likely feel all ready to rip somebody a new orifice. Granted, it is not healthy to repress your emotions, but it is also detrimental to be unemployed. Hopefully Jupiter in your House of Philosophy aligning with Neptune in your sign and Venus in your House of Relationships will bring out your inner Zen Master as well as your sense of humor, so that you can gather yourself and calmly accept the fact that you won’t be a victim of these circumstances for ever, just until you find something better and move on. Saturn retrograde will further re-iterate that it’s not the right time yet to blow this pop stand, but it will be soon…..soon…..
