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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #58 Weekly Horoscopes for 10/29-11/4, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/29-11/4, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! I missed you last week because of a family function I had to attend, but I’m back now so let’s get on with this week’s version of Mr. Saturn’s Stars.

First though I would like to point out that Halloween is coming up, and while many of us are looking forward to festivities and parades, it is also a time when we need to acknowledge the spirits of our ancestors and those who have come before us. This week in particular we should all pray (in whatever way you choose) for the recent victims of the horrible massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh as they join countless others beyond that mysterious veil which separates life and death.

 

Aries- With 4 major planets in your House of Transformation squaring Mars in your House of Groups and opposing Uranus retrograde in your House of Self Worth, this could be quite an evolutionary week for you as you struggle with how the world see’s you in contrast to how you see yourself. Venus retrograde opposing Uranus retrograde will make it easy for you to fall into old patterns and seek approval rather than acknowledging how you really feel in the moment, while at the same time Saturn in your House of Public Image will activate your sense of responsibility (and guilt) as you find yourself in the paradoxical position of doing well yet being unhappy at the same time. This may be a week of two steps forward, one step back, so try your best to roll with it.

 

Taurus- Most of this week’s action will be in your House of Relationships as 4 major planets there oppose Uranus retrograde in your sign, making it seem as though everyone has an agenda regarding what they need from you while at the same time you’re not feeling cooperative in the least. Meanwhile, Saturn and Pluto trending in your House of Philosophy are causing you to think more radically than you ever have before, which could be good for some situations in your life, bad for others, and uncomfortable for everyone around you who thinks they can influence you to do what they want. This is a challenging time for you as you both initiate and react to circumstances that are all outside your legendary Taurus comfort zone……As Grace Slick said at sunrise on the second day at Woodstock, “Now it’s time for morning maniac music, it’s a new dawn, yeah!”

 

Gemini- Challenges, power struggles, personality conflicts, and the like will all make you wonder why you’re still at your current job as 4 major planets march through your House of Work and oppose Uranus retrograde in your House of Confinement. Mars in your House of Philosophy will also be squaring those working planets, which could make you act rashly out of frustration, however, before you burn any bridges first make sure that you can afford to. If not, then let Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation help you start making some new plans for a future transition that will allow you to jump ship on your own terms, rather than getting down in the mud with a gaggle of idiots who will likely shoot each other in the foot sooner or later with or without your involvement.

 

Cancer- Your deepest inventive urges are being stirred now as 4 major planets transit your House of Creativity to oppose Uranus in your House of Dreams and square Mars in your House of Transformation. This isn’t a situation of “oh, it might be nice to try something different,” but rather more like, “if I don’t do something right now to change my life I’m going to kill myself!” Now this may sound a bit melodramatic, but with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Relationships aligning with Neptune in your House of Philosophy, you are no longer the same person you once were and as long as others keep seeing the old you the more you’re going to feel disrespected and useless. Stop thinking what you’d like to try and start making some moves; you’ll be surprised at how potent a little desperation can be.

 

Leo- Past a certain point of complaining you can no longer claim to be a victim of circumstances, instead you have to be willing to admit that you’re either going to accept the situation you’re in or else do something about it. With 4 major planets transiting across the lowest point in your chart and angling harshly with both Mars and Uranus, it’s either you risk initiating a change now or internally self-combust from an unwillingness to do anything about your frustration; pick your poison. Saturn and Pluto transiting through your House of Work have been writing revolutionary rhetoric on the wall for a while now, so what are you waiting for? From those who are capable, much is expected, and right now it’s up to you to decide just how capable you’re willing to be.

 

Virgo- Any difficulties that arise on the job now are not designed to stop you, but rather to make you stronger. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity represent your instincts, as you either fight or run in the face of a stellium of planets in your House of Communication squaring Mars in your House of Work. If you’re the one who’s there when the poo hits the fan then you’ve met your destiny and it’s time to dance in the moonlight with your fears and trepidations. If you ever hope to be the boss (of others, or even just yourself) then you must be able to negotiate the difficult situations that everyone else either avoids or fails in the face of. As the Sun moves into alignment with Neptune, be willing to accept your own vulnerability, it’s the only way to discover just how strong you are.

 

Libra- 4 planets in your House of Self Worth squaring Mars in your House of Creativity would suggest that you are ready now for any challenges that come your way. Uranus in your House of Transformation aligning with Saturn at the lowest point in your chart would also suggest that you’re ready for a rebirth of sorts in regards to a current dream that may have stalled as of late. As the Lunar Arc begins this week it will be passing through your House of Career and aligning with both Jupiter and Mercury in your House of Self Worth, so be prepared to either initiate a push forward or perhaps engage in pushing back if your confidence is challenged. It’s not whether or not you’re good enough to succeed, it’s rather about believing that you are worthy to compete with anyone.

 

Scorpio- You are the sign that rules death and transformation and with 4 major planets currently passing through your domain and squaring Mars at the bottom of your chart, you are essentially the proverbial snake shedding its skin as you discover your potential amidst changing circumstances both at home and at work. Saturn and Pluto are reinforcing this idea of change as they pass through your House of Thinking and you find yourself curiously detached from what you always thought were normal ways of looking at the world. The Lunar Arc this week will begin in your House of Philosophy and end in your House of Confinement, so take the time to reflect on how you arrived at wherever it is you’re now approaching life from.

 

Sagittarius- With 4 major planets in your House of Secrets and Confinement, it’s likely that your inner life is a lot more dynamic now than any external circumstances that you are currently experiencing.  That’s not to say though that your frustration level isn’t going through the roof. Mercury and Jupiter behind the scenes will probably have you playing various scenarios over and over in your head, while a harsh angle to Mars in your House of Communications will make expressing any of this very difficult. Neptune in your House of Foundations aligning with the Sun could represent either a deeper understanding that could unfold from all this contemplation, or else it could be a sense of being thoroughly misunderstood. Either way this should prove to be a confusing week.

 

Capricorn- Your control issues could move front and center this week as 4 major planets in your House of Groups and Dreams are all in harsh alignment with Mars in your House of Self Worth. You’re feeling that you’ve waited long enough for whatever it is you’re after and you don’t want to hear any crap about it. “Show me the money!” will be your battle cry (Or something to that effect). Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity aligning with Saturn in your sign could see some unexpected support coming from someone you used to know, so if what you remember of this person recalls happy times then let yourself feel lighter and stop obsessing over what you don’t have yet…(and the operative word here is “yet”, get it?).

 

Aquarius- As Mars plows ahead through your sign and squares 4 major planets in your House of Career, you’ll be feeling especially ambitious, however, try to pay close attention to what you’re actually feeling. Do you want to succeed out of a healthy sense of competition and/or a natural need for self-expression, or is your desire for success instead coming from a deeper, darker place…like not feeling good enough or believing you don’t deserve love without having to do something for it? Uranus in your House of Foundations aligning with Saturn behind the scenes is bringing this darkness out of you for a reason, so be willing to explore the psychology behind your hopes and dreams in order to make sure they’re bringing you to a better place.

 

Pisces- As Mercury conjuncts Jupiter in your House of Philosophy and squares Mars behind the scenes, you will have a burning desire to confront the unknown, and that could mean anything from a subject you’ve always been curious about to the darker mysteries of the universe. With Saturn aligning with Uranus in your House of Ideas and Communication, you could find yourself deciding to pursue a course of study that may be unusual or arcane in some way; follow this urge and a whole new world of excitement and adventure could open up for you. “Existence is all that can be known, but it is not all that is real.”

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/15-10/21, 2018

 

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

“Doubt requires more courage than conviction does, and more energy; because conviction is a resting place and doubt is infinite……”

-John Patrick Shanley, “Doubt”

 

Aries- You might need to let off some steam this week as Mercury and Venus embrace in your House of Transformation and Intimacy, just pay attention to who your audience is during any confessions or cuddles because in the wrong company loose lips won’t just sink ships, they may end up swallowing a career or friendship as well. As Mars moves into a square with blunt Mercury in Scorpio, be aware that your actions will have consequences, which could include anything from being chastised to getting punched in the nose….so be careful. The Lunar Arc for the week will be moving from your Public Area to behind the scenes, so be discreet and you may just be able to slip in that back door leading to profit and satisfaction…..enjoy!

 

Taurus- If you are currently in a serious professional or intimate relationship it is important that you be willing to speak the truth to your partner at this time. Try to be ahead of the curve if you see the writing on the wall, as Uranus is retrograde in your sign and you don’t want to be surprised by something you could very well have headed off at the pass. Mars transiting through your House of Career will have you in front of the Public so make sure your proverbial fly is zipped, especially as the planet of action moves into a square with Mercury in Scorpio and the haters will be working overtime at the gossip mills. The Lunar Arc will be passing from your Mid-heaven through your House of Public Image and into your House of Groups, so take your Mother’s advice and make sure you’ve got clean undies on just in case you get in an accident and the doctors need to undress you.

 

Gemini- It will be tempting to go off on some dishonest sleaze bag at work, but don’t, even if you’re justified because there could be some unexpected consequences as Mars splits the difference between Neptune and Pluto in your Houses of Public Image and Transformation respectively. Others may not hear the point you’re trying to make about fraud and incompetence, instead they may be put off by your anger and think you’re just being a hard ass. If you can be patient until Mercury gets closer to Pluto later in the week you won’t have to say anything, simply because those two planets are about secrets being revealed and the fool burning your cork has a closet full they’d like to keep under wraps. Smile, you’re on candid camera….

 

Cancer- Mercury in your House of Creativity will be moving into an alignment with both Neptune in your House of Philosophy and Pluto in your House of Relationships, which could mean you’ll find yourself in a position to be an aesthetic guru of sorts for an upcoming event. Your sense of taste along with your naturally romantic nature will be activated by these transits, so don’t hesitate to throw your two cents in the bucket of ideas relating to how the festivities should proceed. Just make sure you’re sense of charm also shows up, simply because you might inadvertently end up showing someone up without intending to, especially with Mars going through your House of Transformation and making you as forceful and energetic as your ideas are inspired.

 

Leo- While at times you can be as sensitive as a pussycat, there are also moments when you can seem as awkward and out of place as having a lion in the living room.  With Mercury and Venus conjunct in Scorpio try to watch your mouth, especially with family, you’re tendency to be blunt now will not earn you any sugar, particularly if you insist on telling people stuff they simply don’t want to hear. Later in the week when Mercury moves into alignment with Pluto you will have your “I told you so moment,” just make sure you don’t actually say that but instead be ready with a solution that will make you seem like you’re psychic (but really you’re just prepared). Everyone will think you’re a genius and you might even end up being proud of yourself as well for not belaboring something that was ultimately inevitable (which you didn’t know then, but you know now).

 

Virgo- What you say now will likely not be nearly as effective as what you do, so plan your actions wisely. If something either at work or in the professional sphere is annoying you, act for the time being like it’s okay, then, when no is watching, start your investigation. Mercury hooking up with Venus will allow you to keep on the down low and appear to go with the flow, although when Mercury moves on to square Mars and align with Pluto you should have all the dirt you need to bust your move and strike like a ninja. Neptune in your House of Relationships will be in on this Mercury driven stuff as well, so make sure that you’re clear about who’s on your side and who isn’t, that way only the baddies will go down and there won’t be any collateral damage. Oh, one final word, you should be executing this mission because it’s the right thing to do, not because you want to get ahead….just sayin’.

 

Libra- There is a sense of mystery surrounding you now that could be used to your advantage, just make sure that you don’t get lost in what others ignorantly project on you. Your insights now are quite sharp and you are able to see through the illusions that most people think is reality. You have true talent, but with such abilities also comes great responsibility, keep that in mind and don’t try to pretend you’re something you’re not; what you are is more than enough. Your words carry a lot of weight now so choose them carefully and commit yourself to only promising what you can actually back up. Once again, what you’re bringing to the table is valuable and because it is you can keep things simple and still shine. Mars in your House of Creativity will be like having a reserve tank of gas, so don’t worry if you’re not the first one out of the gate, you will undoubtedly be a strong finisher.

 

Scorpio- With 3 Major planets now in your sign (Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter) and Mars at your Foundation squaring all of them, your world is rocking and rolling like a stormy sea, however, rather than worrying about getting drowned underneath all this momentum why don’t you instead consider surfing this tidal wave to tube city? Uranus retrograde in your House of Relationships has likely brought back some sort of craziness from your past, but with solid Saturn in Capricorn providing ballast and Pluto (your esoteric ruler) helping to transform your thinking, consider any past drama that is coming up now for revue as a rerun you’ve already seen so you know what’s going to happen. Just keep in mind you’re no longer the person you were back then, but an evolved and self- loving person who has worked hard to get there. Repeat after me, “My name is Gladiator……”

 

Sagittarius- You could possibly be somewhat of a Freudian cocktail now, as Mercury and Venus retrograde in your House of Hidden Things square Mars in your House of Communication. With the addition of restrictive Saturn in your House of Self Worth, try to be aware of any mounting frustrations so you can head them off at the pass, otherwise you may find yourself acting out at the expense of someone you would never think of hurting or, perhaps worse, someone you can’t afford to offend. As Mercury moves further into Scorpio and comes into alignment with Pluto, you will no doubt gain some insight into your recent behavior; let’s just hope you haven’t already forced someone to pass a harsh judgment because of your alter ego.

 

Capricorn- If you feel you’re ready to speak your truth then undoubtedly you’ll find an audience to appreciate it, right? Not necessarily…. At this time such a simple assumption may turn out to be trickier than you think, especially since Mercury and Venus in your House of Groups will be providing you with an edgy, and perhaps hard to understand charisma. This will be because they will both be squaring Mars in your House of Self Worth, which could end up sending some mixed messages as you find that people seem to be intimidated rather than drawn to you. Later in the week when Mercury aligns with Pluto in your sign and Neptune in your House of Communication, you’ll likely figure out what’s going on and make the necessary adjustments; such as less is more, and approachable, not necessarily approaching, is what folks like.

 

Aquarius- Two steps forward and one step back is what life probably feels like to you right now, especially with Saturn in your House of Confinement and Mars in your sign making it seem like you’re driving a car with the brake on. In addition, Uranus at the bottom of your chart is rocking the boat while Mercury squaring Mars is making you feel sea sick, ugh!!! But hang in there, as Mercury moves forward and comes into alignment with both Pluto and Neptune, you should be able to find something to calm you down and help you focus; “Om” or “Cheers”, whichever sounds like music to your ears. At that point, the Lunar Arc for the week will be finishing up in your House of Self Worth and you should be feeling mellow as jello and going with the flow.

 

Pisces- Insights should be coming to you this week like a straight no chaser shot of reality, beginning with the Moon in somber Capricorn embracing Saturn, which will be followed shortly thereafter by blunt Mercury in your House of Philosophy reading the riot act to volatile Mars as he tries to bums rush his way through any obstacles. It won’t be until later in the week when Mercury moves forward to align with Pluto and Neptune in your sign that the gift of insight will dawn on you and you realize the truth behind the old cornball cliché, “things happen for a reason”…….yup, the reason was because you didn’t know any better, but now you do. Namaste.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #53 Weekly Horoscopes for 9/17-9/23, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 9/17-9/23, 2018

 

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

 

Aries- As both the Sun and Mercury finish up this week in your House of Work and proceed to enter your House of Relationships, you may just be ready to look up from that old grindstone and allow yourself a little rest and relaxation with someone special. Mars moving into a square with Uranus will likely make you feel a need to get away from the craziness and what better way than to follow Venus’s lead from your House of Intimacy and squeeze someone until you both shout! Jupiter is also in your House of Intimacy and he’ll be aligning nicely with romantic Neptune behind the scenes, so stock up on what you need this weekend, put the do not disturb sign on the door, and we’ll see you later alligator.

 

Taurus- With Uranus in your sign squaring Mars in your House of Public Image, demands being made on you now could have you worrying about what others may think if you tell them to kiss off! As the Sun and Mercury enter agreeable Libra you’re Venusian nature will default to it’s usual “nice” mode, but is that how you really feel? Jupiter in your House of Relationships aligning with Pluto in your House of Philosophy would suggest you shouldn’t devalue yourself in any way for anyone, especially since Saturn (also in your House of Philosophy) is giving you all the reason you need (namely your self respect) to shut down any craziness before it can get started. Neptune in your House of Groups may be giving someone the wrong idea about your politeness, make sure they get the right idea by letting them see your big stick.

 

Gemini- If you’ve been pushing yourself too hard over the last little while, maybe it’s time to lighten up a bit this week? Particularly since Mars is squaring Uranus behind the scenes, which will likely increase your stress levels significantly. Both the Sun and Mercury will be entering your House of Fun so maybe it’s time to catch up with some old friends or check out an activity you’ve always wanted to try? Jupiter in your House of Health aligning with Pluto in your House of Transformation could make this an excellent time to start an exercise program (or get back to one) especially with Neptune in your House of Public Image; which means don’t take a friend’s teasing as an insult, but rather as motivation to get back in shape. Don’t worry, you’ll make them eat crow in a short while.

 

Cancer- Venus in your House of Creativity squaring Mars in your House of Transformation will likely provide the bugle call you’ve been longing for to awaken some needed inspiration. Add to that Uranus in your House of Dreams and perhaps an opportunity may fall out of the sky this week and hit you in the head…..Jupiter is also in that House of Creativity and as it aligns nicely with Pluto in your House of Partnerships and Neptune in your House of Philosophy, you may end up being an integral part of an important event or project through which you will shine. The Sun and Mercury entering Libra should serve to make things nice and quiet on the home front, so follow your bliss this week with impunity…..go for it!!!

 

Leo- As Mars enters your House of Relationships and squares Uranus in your House of Public Image and Career, you will probably have very little patience this week with any sort of foolishness; let’s just hope somebody doesn’t have to find that out the hard way. Saturn will make you seem all about business at this time, especially as it conjuncts the Moon in your House of Work and aligns with the previously mentioned Uranus in your House of Career. Both Jupiter and Venus are in your House of Home, which means that if you’re willing to help out a loved one now who’s in a tight spot, it could bring some unexpected dividends; of course you shouldn’t help them just because you might end up getting something out of it, but a word to the wise, don’t neglect them either.

 

Virgo- As the song goes, “You got to give a little, take a little, that’s the story of Love,” and with both the Sun and Mercury entering the sign of Libra and your House of Self Worth, making that your mantra this week could serve you very well. Venus in your House of Communication squaring Mars in your House of Work will help you to smooth out any rough edges regarding a situation or person who offers obstacles to your forward progress, as will Jupiter (also in your Communications area) aligning with Pluto in your House of Creativity. You’ll have plenty of charm, ideas, and energy this week, don’t be shy about utilizing these resources!

 

Libra- With the Sun and Mercury entering your sign this week, expect the pace of both your social and professional lives to pick up considerably. Mars in your House of Creativity will activate your efforts to either start a new project, get something you’ve just finished out there, or perhaps even try to push forward on both fronts at the same time. This sounds like things could get hectic, but with both Saturn and Pluto in your House of Foundations aligning with Uranus and Jupiter respectively, they’ll be plenty of earth around (furnishing both supports and obstacles) to keep you well grounded in reality. Add to that Venus and Jupiter in your House of Self Worth, and there may be more than a little luck on your side right now as well. In the meantime, don’t be surprised at whatever 4 leaf clovers you may come across, after all, you deserve it.

 

Scorpio- Take a deep breath and count your lucky stars, even if you don’t win the lotto or fall in love, simply because Venus and Jupiter are in your sign and no matter what shit Mars and Uranus toss at the fan, none of it will get on you. Neptune in your House of Creativity should provide plenty of inspiration, while Pluto in your House of Communication should provide the means to get through any ennui anyone tries to thwart you with, as you plow ahead undeterred, unsinkable, and unabashed in the face of any hassles great or small. The inner life should steer the outer, so with both the Sun and Mercury transiting behind the scenes in the sign of Libra you’ll likely have the balance of a gyroscope, therefore, don’t hesitate to do you with impunity; the Gods will be supportive.

 

Sagittarius- Mars will begin the week squaring Uranus in your Houses of Communication and Work respectively, which could mean that there’ll be enough bullshit on the job to make you think you’re working in the stables at Pamplona, but don’t despair. Venus and Jupiter behind the scenes will be aligning with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth to give you all the intuition, insight, and ingenuity you’ll need to be able to navigate the situation with a minimum or both mess and odor. However, after you dodge this bullet take a moment to reflect on the fact that if you can be so stealth when the circumstances calls for it, then how come you’re still in the same crummy situation? You can either resume as you are, or send out a resume, think about it.

 

Capricorn- The Sun and Mercury entering your House of Career this week will be like hiring a PR firm to promote your image, and God knows with Saturn in your sign and Mars in your House of Self Worth you will definitely need a ring master to get this show on the road. Jupiter and Venus in your House of Dreams aligning with Pluto would indicate you’re absolutely ready for a makeover, while Uranus in your House of Creativity would indicate the world isn’t prepared for what that may mean, but hey, that’s not your problem, not with glamorous Neptune aligning with Jupiter and the potential for a zillion instagram likes hanging in the balance…..just kidding; though you do need to get out there and you’re a lot more fabulous than you give yourself credit for…..just sayin’.

 

Aquarius- Mars in your sign squaring Uranus in your House of Foundations will seem like your own personal category four hurricane this week, however, don’t evacuate just yet. Venus and Jupiter in your House of Career would indicate there’s help on the way. Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes are aligning with some of this volatility, which means you’ll possess not only the personal gravitas to weather this situation, but also the creative versatility of Neptune in your House of Self Worth to help you sail beyond any impending disasters. As the Sun and Mercury enter your House of Philosophy, your personal Zen will no doubt become apparent to everyone around as you transcend not only your circumstances, but your self as well.

 

Pisces- Neptune is your ruling planet and with him currently in your sign life has no doubt seemed like a rollercoaster between illusion and enlightenment for a while now. Amidst this fog, Mars will be entering behind the scenes this week to square Uranus in your House of Communications, which mean either you could lose your shit or be the target of someone else losing theirs. Jupiter and Venus in your House of Philosophy would advise you to take the high road in any conflict, while Pluto in your House of Friends would suggest quickly disengaging from anyone who can’t respect you enough to disagree civilly. The Sun and Mercury entering Libra and your House of Transformation will likely concur with this agenda of good manners, so if you can manage to keep your cool this week then others will likely keep theirs.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #51 Weekly Horoscopes for 9/3-9/9, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 9/3-9/9, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! Looks like we may be emerging from the Astrological doldrums at last. With two planets changing signs this week and Saturn going station/direct, it should start to feel like it does getting that first leg out of bed in the morning…..well, at least that’s something.

 

Aries- Hope your Summer was fun because with Mercury moving into your House of Work and Venus entering your House of Transformation, it’s time to kick off the flip-flops and put on your work boots (or suit) and get hunched over that grindstone. The New Moon will also be in your House of Work aligning with Jupiter in your House of Transformation, so expect both opportunities and responsibilities to be increasing, especially with Saturn going direct in your House of Career and looking over your shoulder like a boss with a maniacal gleam in his eye. Things may end up getting hectic, but with Uranus retrograde in your House of Earnings it may just end up being worth your while.

 

Taurus- If you have been neglecting your responsibilities to a partner, this may be the week when you’ll have to make amends. With Uranus retrograde in your sign and Mercury entering your House of Creativity to align with Venus entering your House of Relationships, plan a surprise for your significant other or business partner and make sure it just reeks of thoughtfulness, otherwise you may be running the risk of wasting that New Moon aligning with Jupiter in your Houses of Romance and Partnerships along with all the perks and kisses such an aspect would suggest.

 

Gemini- Saturn going station/direct in your House of Transformation would suggest a reckoning of sorts, especially if you’ve been cutting corners in your responsibilities toward others. Mercury entering your House of Foundations along with Venus entering your House of Work will likely be about a need to act nicer than you have been, as well as paying attention to certain basic rules that you’ve also probably disregarded. Add to all this the fact that the New Moon will also be in your House of Foundations aligning with Jupiter, and the stage is set for you to either turn over a new leaf and fulfill your prescribed duties, or else get ready for a big blowout with your disgruntled colleagues which you likely won’t win.

 

Cancer- As Mercury enters your House of Communication this week and aligns with Venus entering your House of Creativity, get ready for some unexpected good news. Saturn going station/direct in your House of Partnerships will also be in alignment with Mercury and Venus, meaning that someone who has been a pain in your ass ever since you can remember may finally get the big adios as the winds of change blow them off to Siberia or wherever their kind deserves to be. Uranus retrograde in your House of Dreams may see you receiving help from an unexpected source, perhaps someone you helped in the past who wants to repay the favor. The New Moon will also be in your House of Communications and as it aligns with Jupiter make sure to reach out to someone you haven’t heard from in a while; they may have some interesting news to share…..and fun times as well!!!

 

Leo- With the Sun and Mercury in your House of Self Worth this week, as well as Jupiter and Venus in your House of Foundations, this could be the perfect time for you to transform either your appearance or your circumstances. Start an exercise program, look for a new job, perhaps even implement some home improvements, it doesn’t really matter what you do, just make sure that it’s about reflecting elements of self-love and hope rather than resigning yourself to being disappointed by any individual or situation. The New Moon will also be in your House of Self Worth, and as it aligns with both Jupiter and Pluto, keep in mind this is the perfect time to release whatever isn’t working so there can be space for something better to come in and sweep you off your feet.

 

Virgo- There is a lot of activity in your sign now as your ruler Mercury arrives along with a New Moon at the end of the week. Jupiter will soon accompany Venus in your House of Communications, and when these two eventually combine with Neptune in your House of Partnerships, it could end up being a time of particularly fruitful correspondences with both family and friends. As Saturn goes station/direct in your House of Fun, consider planning a party or helping someone else out with their celebration. Uranus in your House of Philosophy will have you wanting to get out of any situation you feel restricted by, so let that New Moon in your sign over the weekend inspire you to make plans to get out of Dodge, even if it’s just into a bottle of vino.

 

Libra- With Jupiter in your House of Self Worth and Venus soon to follow, you may be in store for an unexpected surprise this week, especially if you’ve been struggling with a project (as well as your self-confidence).  Saturn going station/direct in your House of Foundations could offer some traction now if things at home have been stuck, particularly if you’ve been lacking either the time or the motivation to fix whatever isn’t working. Uranus retrograde in your House of Transformation should open up your intuition, especially if you have been too pragmatic and pessimistic as of late with all the recent retrograde planets. The good news is we’re down from 5 of those backward suckers to only 3 this week and you’re still standing…….let’s celebrate…first round on Venus and Jupiter!

 

Scorpio- “You’ve got the look, you’ve got the look,” especially with Venus and Jupiter in your sign now, I mean could anyone look more Gotherotic than you at this time ?……I DON’T THINK SO…… Add Neptune in your House of Creativity and Pluto in your House of Communication, and you’re essentially a walking performance piece of everyone’s fantasies. Of course with Uranus retrograde in your House of Relationships be well aware that your charisma now ain’t about love, that comes later after getting to know a nice person, right now this is about surviving as much fun as a person can stand without getting a belly ache or an STD. I know this all sounds a little intense, but don’t worry, if you’re lucky, the New Moon in Virgo should keep you as pure as the driven snow; and remember, I did say Venus and Jupiter (the Benefics who bring all good things) are in your sign.

 

Sagittarius- Mercury will be entering your House of Career this week just as Venus slips behind the scenes into your House of Confinement making it clearly apparent (if it isn’t already) that when it comes to your career you are your own worst enemy. The good news though it that with the new Moon also in your House of Career aligning with Pluto in your house of Self Worth and Jupiter in your House of Secrets, you will finally be motivated to get to the bottom of this “self worth” crap because, quite frankly, it’s insulting to have an idiot who couldn’t find their ass with both hands telling you what to do and getting paid a lot more than you for it. Saturn going station/direct should also be of help in this matter, especially as it aligns with Uranus retrograde in your House of Work to spur you on to look for another place to offer your services. Let me tell you something, you know what the secret is to feeling worthy of success? Persistence, which simply means proving to yourself what you’re worth by not giving up until you get what you want.

 

Capricorn- What do you want and what will it take to get there? As Mercury enters its home sign of Virgo and your House of Philosophy, this and many other pragmatic questions should be making the rounds in your gray matter. Add to this both Venus and Jupiter in your House of Dreams and you may just be the cat’s pajamas this week on the job or anywhere else you feel a burning desire to succeed. Saturn going direct in your sign should also give you a boost, especially as it still trines Uranus in your House of Creativity. The kicker though should be the New Moon in your House of Philosophy as it opposes Neptune in your House of Logic, helping you come to the welcome epiphany that you’re a lot more capable than you ever imagined…congratulations!

 

Aquarius- As Mercury enters your House of Transformation and aligns with Uranus retrograde in your House of Foundations, you are probably turning over and over in your mind every possible way for you to change your present circumstances. Jupiter and Venus in your House of Career would indicate that opportunities are available, but it probably won’t be until after the New Moon at the end of the week that the fish will start biting, especially since Neptune in opposition to the New Moon in your House of Self Worth has let you down before when you were convinced a sure thing was at hand. Saturn going station/direct behind the scenes should also help to loosen things up a bit by making it feel like it does when you release the emergency brake on your car and things can start rolling freely again.

 

Pisces- You better figure out quick what your partner needs from you (especially if you haven’t been paying attention) because they will tell you this week in no uncertain terms if they haven’t been getting what they want; and loudly too! Venus and Jupiter in your House of Intimacy represent a pair of lucky 4-leaf clovers just waiting to be picked, but only if you can activate your Spidey sense in time and divine the root of your partners festering dissatisfaction. Saturn going station/direct in your House of Dreams and aligning with Uranus retrograde in your house of Communication could be of valuable assistance in figuring out how to be in two places at once (in your head as well as wherever the rest of you currently is) since being exclusively in your head as of late has been the reason for your partner’s grumpiness along with most of your other current problems.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #50 Weekly Horoscopes for 8/27-9/2, 2018

 

Weekly Horoscopes for 8/27-9/2, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. As we close out the “Dog Days” of August and head towards Labor Day, it’s getting closer all the time to that magick moment when we’ll all be able to raise a toast together and enjoy Mueller Time along with a good barbequed Rump Roast……..

 

“So won’t someone help me to break up this crown?

Let’s all drink to the death of a clown

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la”

-The Kinks

 

Aries- As Mars goes station/direct in your House of Career to start the week, the delays of the recent past that have been frustrating you should start to gradually change. However, be careful what you wish for, as the forward movement of Mars in the near future will be heading back into a volatile square with crazy old Uranus. Right now though as the Sun in early Virgo and your House of Work lingers in a Grand Trine with both Saturn in your House of Career and Uranus in your House of Self Worth, at least enjoy the fact that the asses you’ve been forced to endure recently have finally managed to get their bearings straight to finally figure out which end should be leading the way.

 

Taurus- With Uranus retrograde in your sign aligning with both the Sun in your House of Creativity and Saturn retrograde in your House of Philosophy, any ideas or inspirations that may have stalled recently could get a revitalizing push forward, especially as Mars begins its direct motion and prepares to enter your house of Career in the near future. Jupiter in your House of Partnerships squaring Mercury in your House of Foundations could also motivate you now to push back at the status quo, especially if the same old way of doing things is stifling the newfound visions inspired by Uranus. Neptune in your House of Dreams could have you feeling quite inspired at this time, so make sure some boring pragmatist who needs to un-bunch their shorts doesn’t manage discourage the dreamer within you. As the song goes, “Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind/ It’s gonna be bright, bright, Sun-Shiny day.”

 

Gemini- Neptune in your House of Public Image is probably making you feel that you can get away with pretending whatever you want about yourself and the world will just go along with it……NOT!!! Jupiter squaring Mercury in your House of Communications could see someone you’ve taken for granted giving you the shaft where the sun don’t shine, while at the same time Uranus behind the scenes starts to unravel the control you’ve tried to establish as all your co-dependent minions start to panic like rats on a sinking ship. Mars going direct in your House of Death and Transformation will signal the long uphill battle that awaits, as it slowly moves into your House of Long distance affairs and into an explosive square with volatile Uranus. Illusion and lies within, and enemies surrounding you; good luck as the chickens come home to roost…..cluck, cluck!!!

 

Cancer- Jupiter in your House of Creativity squaring Mercury in your House of Self Worth could turn out to be the kick in the ass you’ve needed for a while now. At the same time, Jupiter will also be aligning nicely with Neptune in your House of Ideas and Inspiration, making some of those visions you’ve always held in check just too fabulous to contain any longer; so, what are you waiting for! The Sun in your House of Communication aligning with Uranus in your House of Dreams and Saturn in your House of Relationships are all about getting out there and pushing back against anyone or anything that tries to control your flow; again, what are you waiting for, full speed ahead! In addition, Mars going direct this week in your House of Partnerships would speak to you no longer wasting your time for the convenience of anyone else, but instead, investing wholeheartedly in relocating to the promised land of doing you. “Somewhere over the Rainbow……..”

 

Leo- As the Sun transits now through your House of Self Worth you could be feeling a pressing need to make your mark in the world. Uranus passing through your House of Public Image would suggest that whatever you choose to do along these lines will no doubt be unique, but more importantly is that it should also be true to who you really are. Mars going direct in your House of Health and Work will provide all the necessary energy you might need, while Jupiter squaring Mercury in your sign will alternately provide the X-factor of both charisma and attitude. Leo is a sign of leadership so don’t hesitate to put yourself out there. Venus in your House of Communication aligning with Mercury in your sign will give you the gift of gab,  or the gift of presence if that’s what is needed; either way all eyes should be on you, so remember what Mom always said, maintain good posture and if you can’t say something good, don’t say anything at all…..just smile.

 

Virgo- The Sun in your sign aligning with Uranus in your House of Philosophy and Saturn in your House of Creativity should have you feeling quite inspired at this time. As a result, don’t hesitate to follow your intuition, for no matter how “out there” your ideas may seem to the rank and file minds, you will find a way to make your visions manifest.  Jupiter in your House of Communication squaring Mercury in Leo behind the scenes represents the compulsion that drives almost every great artist; it’s not that you want to express yourself, rather it’s that you have to, or else you will no doubt spontaneously combust in a bonfire of your own passionate creativity. Neptune in your House of Partnerships aligning with Pluto in your House of Creativity could also find you crossing paths with someone special at this time. This meeting might be romantic, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be; perhaps a mentor or sponsor who sees you innate potential could represent the type of meaningful relationship you need at this time in your life.

 

Libra- After having retreated from your House of Creativity into your House of Foundations, Mars will once again start to move forward this week back into your Creative area. If you have been working on any sort of a creative project as of late, make sure that over the next couple of weeks you work especially hard to bring it across the finish line and into the hands of whoever can get it out there for you. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth aligning with Neptune and squaring Mercury should also make you particularly adept at this time in regards to finding the holistic solution to just about any problem. Uranus is another friend you can count on at this time, as it crosses through your House of Transformation and aligns with Saturn at your core to make your insights especially sharp and your ability to connect with the right folks at the right time particularly uncanny.

 

Scorpio- Mars is the co-ruler of your sign and as it goes station/direct to start the week in your House of Communication you need to be ready to start pushing an important agenda forward, whether it be at work or in your personal life. Uranus in your House of Partnerships might indicate that you could face some initial resistance to some of your ideas, but the fact that Uranus also trines Saturn in your House of Communication should mean that if you have done your homework and your facts are straight you should be able to convince just about anybody of anything. Jupiter in your sign aligning with Neptune in your House of Creativity and squaring Mercury in your House of Career will probably give you all the charisma and eloquence you need, just make sure you also take the time to listen; building a network of supporters and collaborators at this time will insure that your new success will become your long term success.

 

Sagittarius- If things have seemed a little bogged down as of late, Mars going station/direct in your House of Self Worth should help to motivate you this week. Saturn retrograde is also in your Self worth area and as it aligns nicely with Uranus in your House of Work, expect the unexpected, perhaps even a surprise perk based on something you did for someone in the recent past. Jupiter behind the scenes is alternately being squared by Mercury in your House of Philosophy and trined by Neptune in your House of Foundations, meaning that if you’re willing to draw a line in the sand about your personal boundaries, you just might get some cooperation and respect from someone who depends on you and can’t really afford to piss you off. Check and mate in your favor regarding this week’s power struggle.

 

Capricorn- You should have energy to spare this week as Mars goes station/direct in your sign, joining your ruler Saturn and transformative Pluto. In the meantime, Jupiter in your House of Dreams will be providing both leadership and inspiration as it first squares Mercury in your House of Transformation and then aligns nicely with Neptune in your House of Communication. Innovative and freewheeling Uranus in your House of Creativity though will provide the real kick, as he continues in a beneficial alignment with the Sun in your House of Philosophy and Saturn in your sign. This is a time when you might be so busy that everything you’re managing to accomplish might not become evident to you until some time later on, when you will be able to look back and realize all the track you had to put down in order to get you wherever it is you find yourself in the future.

 

Aquarius- You may have had a brief rest over the last few weeks as Mars backed out of your sign, but now as the Planet of War goes station/direct and gets ready to re-enter your home turf prepare for the poop to hit the fan once again. An approaching square to Uranus in your House of Foundations could see you facing some unexpected renovations on the home front, while a square to Venus in your House of Long Distance Affairs could see you having to revisit a family conflict that an annoying someone just won’t let go of. With Jupiter in your House of Public Image aligning nicely with Neptune in your House of Self Worth, you should be able to remain magnanimous in the face of this pesty relative’s badgering, however, with Mercury in your House of Relationships, don’t hesitate to shut this person up with a few chosen words if you have to.

 

Pisces- As Mars goes station/direct in your House of Career, get ready to hit the ground running at either work or school. Saturn retrograde aligning nicely with Uranus retrograde in your House of Communication will likely have you reconnecting with associates you haven’t seen in a while, making it seem as though the air is buzzing with new plans and ideas. Jupiter in your House of Philosophy will also be aligning nicely with Neptune now, as well as squaring Mercury in your House of Routines, therefore likely setting the stage for a hectic but productive week. A word to the wise, look at the coming months as a marathon and not a sprint, that way you can pace yourself and literally experience the best of everything.

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

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

 

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

“All around, people looking half dead

Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #47 Weekly Horoscopes for 8/6-8/12, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 8/6-8/12, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! What a week we have coming up! The Sun and Mercury will pass each other going in opposite directions over a New Moon and a Solar Eclipse in Leo, Venus will cross over into her home sign of Libra to align effectively with Mars retrograde, and Uranus will go station/retrograde giving us a grand total of 6 (count ‘em 6) retrograde planets at this time. Intense, huh?

Let’s get to it and see how all this Astro-drama will effect each of you.

 

Aries- The Sun and Mercury going in opposite directions over a Solar Eclipse and a New Moon in Leo in your House of Creativity could see some loose ends with a creative project coming a little looser before they finally get tied up, especially since this Leo contingent will be squared by Jupiter passing through your House of Shared Resources. There is likely nothing wrong with what you’re actually working on, it’s just that some people need to be squeaky wheels to feel important. Try to grin and bear it. You’ll no doubt get some help in the acceptance department from Friendly Venus as she enters your House of Partnerships, although how long this good feeling will last will certainly be challenged when she moves into a square with Saturn retrograde in your House of Career. Best to put up a “Gone Fishing” sign for now and wait until the majority of planets are going forward rather than backward before you get too concerned about anything.

 

Taurus- There should be a lot of drama on the home front this week, especially involving communications with family and close associates as the Sun and Mercury pass each other going in opposite directions through a New Moon and a Solar Eclipse in your House of Foundations. You may have to repeat something yet again for someone who is having a hard time paying attention over the ambient noise of Mars retrograde lingering in a tense square with a now retrograde Uranus. Handle any dense colleagues or relatives with kid gloves at this time, as a proud and sensitive Jupiter in Scorpio and your House of Relationships will square the entire above-mentioned Eclipse contingent. With 6 retrograde planets now, expect your legendary patience to be tested. Circumstances may be waving a red handkerchief in front of your face, but remember, you could just as easily look away and be a cow grazing instead of an angry bull about to charge.

 

Gemini- With Venus in your House of Fun, the possibilities for Summer recreation are at their apex, as a result, any work demands made upon you now could elicit a less than pleasant reaction, either from you or the people you will likely want to blow off in order to go play. Face it though, it will be hard not to come off as being arrogant if you try to defend your desire for leisure, after all, if you don’t do the job in question someone else will have to. Jupiter in your House of Work squaring the Solar Eclipse and New Moon in your House of Communications will try to remind you that being the boss doesn’t always mean getting to do whatever you want, sometimes it means the buck stops at your desk and the responsibility for whatever is going on is yours. Besides, with 6 planets currently retrograde you can always take some time off next week.

 

Cancer- The Solar Eclipse and New Moon this week will be occurring in your House of Self Worth and the “me first” sign of Leo. If you have been running around like a crazy person for most of the summer doing things for this one and that one, then the time has undoubtedly come for you to do something for yourself. Jupiter in your House of Fun would concur, and as he squares both the Sun and Mercury retrograde back in that House of Self Worth, what better time is there than now to kick back and listen to the ocean with some delicious wine swishing around in your mouth? Venus will be entering into your House of Symbolic Foundations at this time as well and moving into a square with Saturn retrograde in your House of Partnerships, meaning if you’re ready to relax then the first step would be to stop feeling guilty about needing to take care of everything and everyone and be willing to let some of your co-dependents learn how to do some shit for themselves! Word!

 

Leo- When an irresistible force meets an immovable object there are two possibilities; confrontation or negotiation. You might find yourself immersed in a power struggle this week that’s not necessarily of your own choosing, however, since you refuse to be pushed around, stop thinking like a victim and start acting like you’re ready to take control. With the new Moon and the Solar Eclipse in your sign this week and both of them in square to Jupiter in your House of Symbolic Foundations, there is an element of destiny at play here; not quite “The Sword in the Stone,” but face it, you probably are the best qualified and most respected person in whatever situation this brouhaha is happening. Venus entering your House of Communications should be of immense help in making your case for any support you might need, although when she moves into an eventual square to Saturn expect there to be delays because the status quo doesn’t change overnight and oppressors don’t go without a fight.

 

Virgo- Revelations about a new you could go off now like a roman candle as this week’s Solar Eclipse and New Moon in fiery Leo explode behind the scenes in your House of the Secret Self. A square to this Leo contingent will come from Jupiter in your House of Communications, which in turn will trine Neptune in your House of Partnerships, meaning everything in the past that made you feel subservient will now be transformed into an inner strength that will help you to realize that your vulnerability has been your true power rather than any sort of weakness. As a result, you will calmly speak your mind with more effect and gravitas than the loudest screamer could ever attain as they try to camouflage their fear and insecurity behind bullying and greed. In addition, Venus will enter your House of Self Worth and align nicely with Mars retrograde in your House of Health, implying that your charisma will likely be at an all time high. Welcome to the ranks of the Peaceful Warriors, we salute you!

 

Libra- This week’s Solar Eclipse and New Moon will be in the charismatic sign of Leo and your House of Groups and Dreams. A square to this event from Jupiter in your House of Self Worth could end up furnishing the very break you need to get a creative project you’ve been working on into the right hands at the right time. As Venus enters your sign she will be aligning with Mars retrograde in your House of Creativity, so make sure you tie up any loose ends and do any necessary edits on the above mentioned project so that it will be ready to be revealed to the world at the time of its optimum ripeness. With 6 retrograde Planets now it is important that you concentrate on marshaling your forces together like a hibernating bear stores their energy, that way, when the proper season arrives you will have no worries as you will confidently prove to be “A Man (Woman) for All Seasons.”

Scorpio- Ambition will be your middle name right now with this week’s New Moon and Solar Eclipse in your House of Career and Public Image squaring expansive Jupiter in your sign. You will be no doubt driven; just don’t get driven to distraction. The downside of this powerful eclipse can be an accelerated sense of hubris, especially with the eclipse being in the often times arrogant sign of Leo and Jupiter being in your sign, which we all know can at times become unnaturally obsessed with just about anything. If you can manage to keep your head small enough to get through the doorway, Venus entering her home sign of Libra behind the scenes and aligning with Mars retrograde in your house of Creativity might actually give you the chance to reveal a larger than life talent at this time, rather than being side tracked by a larger than life ego…..”When I was younger, so much younger than today, I never needed anybody’s help in any way.”

 

Sagittarius- The Solar Eclipse and New Moon this week will be in your House of Philosophy and the fiery sign of Leo, with both of them squaring expansive Jupiter behind the scenes in your House of Confinement. If you’ve been feeling strangely stuck or like something mysterious is holding you back, maybe it’s because you’ve never checked to see if that cell you’ve always felt jailed in is actually locked? Perhaps freedom has been within your power all along and you could seize it at anytime you choose? Imagine that!!! As beautiful Venus enters your House of Dreams and moves into a square with crotchety old Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth, the Goddess of Love should be giving you a very strong hint of what’s possible in terms of your happiness, especially as she aligns with Mars retrograde and makes you want to really scratch that itch to break out. As those anonymous voices of angst, The Who, once sang;

 

”Can you see the real me preacher?

Can you see the real me doctor?

Can you see the real me mother?

Can you see the real me?”

 

Capricorn- As Venus enters your House of Career and Public Image and moves into a square with Saturn retrograde in your sign, whatever is lacking in your life, from the great to the seemingly imperceptible, will become disturbingly clear to you. Of course the New Moon and Solar Eclipse this week in Leo will also have a lot to do with this sense of something missing, especially as they both explode in your House of Death and Transformation while forming a harsh angle to Jupiter in your House of Dreams. With 6 retrograde planets at this time, reflection not action should be your Zen right now, so take the time to consider how you have managed to end up in a different place emotionally than what you find yourself doing? Uranus going retrograde in your House of Creativity squaring Mars retrograde in your House of Self Worth will likely represent a catharsis of some sort; perhaps you’ll realize a choice in the past to be “different” was really a subconscious admittance of not being good enough? Who are you really, and does it currently feel like you’re on the right path to find out?

 

Aquarius- Mars retrograde in your sign aligning with Venus entering your House of Philosophy will likely find you contemplating the nature of love and relationships, in particular, why you don’t currently have a significant other? The New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Leo will be in your House of Relationships, and as it squares Jupiter in your House of Public Image it may finally dawn on you that the reason you’re single may just be because for the last little while you’ve been more interested in building a fan club than in really getting to know any one on a truly personal level. Saturn retrograde in your House of Secrets has been whispering in your ear for some time now that adulation should never be mistaken for love, yet at the same time Uranus in your House of Foundations has been insisting like a recalcitrant child that attention equals love. Hmmm. Which to believe? …With 6 retrograde planets in the heavens at this time, perhaps instead of being worried why you’re not famous yet, you should instead be asking yourself what the emotional difference is between a fb friend and a real friend?

 

Pisces-You may be on the verge of learning a valuable lesson right now regarding the nature of what you desire as opposed to what is meant to be. The New Moon and Solar Eclipse in your House of Routines is being squared by Jupiter in your House of Philosophy, highlighting the contradiction that often exists between what we want and what circumstances will allow, while at the same time Venus in your House of Shared Resources is aligning nicely with Mars retrograde behind the scenes, illustrating how going with the flow often aligns us with the true power in any given situation. It is hard to let things go if you’re always reminding yourself of what you don’t have, instead why don’t you try to consider what you do have and try not to take that for granted? Such a state of acceptance is ground zero for all the love in the Universe and, as the song goes, “All You Need is Love,”……bop, ba na na na…..

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.
