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

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

 

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

                                                                   –Charles Dickens “A Tale of Two Cities”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #30 weekly Horoscopes for 4/2-4/8, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 4/2-4/8, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. I’m sorry about there being no horoscopes last week. I hope you didn’t have to go too far to find a substitute for the abuse you usually get here. At any rate I’m back, so if you’re ready for some snarky TLC let’s get going.

 

Aries- The Lunar Arc for you this week will begin in your House of Transformation and then continue through your Houses of Philosophy and Career, suggesting that this period could turn out to be a real psycho/spiritual turning point for you. The Regal and Lovely Benefics (Jupiter and Venus) are each aligning to support Pluto, Mars, and Saturn in your House of Public Image, meaning the terms “dress for success” and “you’re only as pretty as you feel” could be entirely interchangeable for you right now as you manage to light up wherever you are with that indefinable, yet irresistible something that makes people just want to throw money at it. A word to the wise, just make sure you don’t go head tripping as a result of this new charisma and inadvertently end up in someone’s  back pocket.

 

Taurus- With Venus transiting through your sign you are a very attractive tomato right now; just don’t allow the merchandise to be handled too much. Saturn in your House of Philosophy could represent the Sugar Daddy you dream about that would make your life easier, like a steady job with benefits and no prospects, while on the other hand Mars in the same House is the Back Door Man who would undoubtedly make your life more exciting, yet because of him you could end up “Like a Rolling Stone.” Hmmm, decisions, decisions! Jupiter Retrograde in Scorpio aligning with Pluto in Capricorn could add to this indecision by seeming like a shadow instead of a rainbow pointing to that pot of gold you’re always dreaming/worrying about, but that’s only because you need to learn that real wealth exists in the deep, dark recesses of your self rather than as a gift given to you by someone else.

 

Gemini- As Mars, Saturn, and Pluto all pass through your House of Death and Transformation, realize that the commitments you are contemplating now are not merely concepts but are rather the seeds that will grow to be harvested as your destiny. With that in mind, don’t be in a rush to get something moving when you’re still trying to figure out exactly where it’s headed or if you even want to go that way. Mercury Retrograde in your House of Dreams and Venus behind the scenes both represent the need to make sure you think through all your options before putting your name on the dotted line. In short, Mr. Saturn would advise, “measure twice and cut once,” unless of course you feel you have the time and materials to waste.

 

Cancer- Make sure you keep your rally cap on this week as Mercury Retrograde in Aries and your House of Career runs into a roadblock from the Malefics (Mars and Saturn) in your House of Partnerships. You may be doubting a course of action you have recently taken involving a matter at work, however, don’t automatically assume that because things are currently delayed that you have made a bad decision. Hope should come later in the week from Venus all decked out in her Taurus finery in your House of Dreams as she distracts those bullying Malefics from picking on poor Mercury and brings new meaning to the old saying, “it ain’t over until the fat lady sings,” although Lady Venus ain’t no fatty and she won’t be doing any singing, if you get my drift (ooh la la). Score one for the Femme Fatale.

 

Leo- Mercury Retrograde in your House of Philosophy is being cornered on a dead end street by a couple of thugs from your House of Daily Responsibilities in the form of Mars and Saturn (aka “The Malefics”). The question now for you my fine, furry friend is whether or not the threat being posed here is real or imagined. Is the message you are understanding from Mercury’s situation merely illustrating that you will never be anything more than a victim of circumstance in your life or will you instead take a risk and make those bullies fight for the right to oppress you? Just like the Cowardly Lion in the Wizard of Oz, perhaps some courage on your part now would reveal that these aren’t really bullies at all, but in fact teachers who have appeared to help you learn to stand up for yourself. “If it’s your first time in Fight Club you must fight!”

 

Virgo- With Mercury Retrograde in your House of Death and Intimacy squaring Mars and Saturn in your House of Creativity and Romance, perhaps this is a time for you to review rather than move ahead in regards to a project or even a relationship you’ve been involved in. As Hemingway once wrote in “The Sun Also Rises” regarding the ill fated affair of the story’s Hero and Heroine, “Isn’t it pretty to think so?” Contemplate these words well, for Neptune in your House of Relationships has you wrapped up in that psychosis some think of as love, yet at the same time you have also lost sight of the forest for the trees in regards to if you even really know this person you’re with. For your own safety make sure that all that glitters is in fact gold when it comes to matters of the heart. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

 

“I have never had

My heart broken but I have

Dropped it a few times”

 

Libra- If it feels as though you are living in a time warp while the past and the future seem to be “drawing and quartering” you, take heart, for this too shall pass. Mercury Retrograde in your House of Relationships squaring Mars and Saturn in your House of Symbolic Foundations could bring back a blast from the past in the form of someone whose last appearance in your life occurred when you originally broke through to being the person you have been up until now. Hopefully this will help you to realize that time is not linear, but a circle, and you have merely arrived back at your core issues for a necessary evolutionary review, kind of like flipping a pancake so it can get cooked on the other side. You are more formidable now than you realize and as Pluto aligns with Jupiter Retrograde you will soon see that the challenges of the past couple of months will end up turning into some pretty valuable currency as the Future comes to meet you more than halfway.

 

Scorpio- The Lunar Arc begins this week in your sign and then travels through your Houses of Earnings and Communication, which along with Mercury Retrograde in your House of Shared Resources, will probably have you thinking a lot right now about how much you’re getting out of a certain situation as opposed to how much you should be getting from it. Mars and Saturn in your House of Creativity will likely have you feeling stifled, which believe it or not could lead you to one of the best ideas you’ve ever had due to a helping hand from Venus in your House of Philosophy. You’ll only ever make as much as you feel you deserve and Jupiter aligning with Pluto are just the pair to motivate you to take a hard look in the mirror until you can honestly say to yourself, “Hell Yeah I’m worth it!”  By the weekend when the Sun and Mars start grappling together you should be all over the situation like white on rice!!!

 

Sagittarius- The Moon in your sign will start the week in a square with Neptune, which could have you feeling either overly optimistic or pessimistic. Mercury retrograde in your House of Creativity in harsh aspect to a whole bunch of Capricorn planets in your House of Self Worth will eventually set matters straight and in all likelihood be about rethinking or, in some cases, redoing something you already thought was a done deal. If that’s the case, take it easy, it doesn’t mean you’re a bad person because you overlooked something or made a mistake, no matter what you may hear emotional Jupiter rant about behind the scenes. Right now Mars and Saturn in your House of Earnings may have you feeling stuck and under appreciated, but stay calm and keep plugging. As the song goes, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need.”

 

Capricorn- With Venus in your House of Creativity and Romance speeding into a beneficial aspect with Mars and Saturn conjunct in your sign, it will be important to realize that the seeds you sow and the deeds you perform at this time will be very important in establishing a foundation for a future you can’t fully picture just yet. Neptune in your House of Communication will be involved in this as well, meaning that there is a strong likelihood that both romance and art could play very important roles in transforming how you think about yourself. Jupiter will also have something to do with this as he aspects Pluto as traditionally these two together usually imply increased monetary resources, meaning you should stop  worrying about the small stuff and just go ahead and get busy doing what needs to be done.

 

Aquarius- There are times when you can be extremely critical of both yourself and others and with Mercury Retrograde in your House of Communication angling against Mars, Saturn, and Pluto behind the scenes, this could be the time when you finally begin to realize what that’s all about. Neptune in your House of Self Worth has been playing with you for a while, which has only been about trying to get you to see that your value in life is not determined by the approval of others, whether that means always feeling you need to be doing more or else constantly striving to be the center of attention. A simple joke that Mr. Saturn has always liked goes, “Descartes said “to do is to be”, Buddha said “to be is to do”, and Sinatra sang “Do be do be do…” Think about it.

 

Pisces- This has probably been a year of struggle for you so far and with Mercury Retrograde in your House of Self Worth squaring Mars, Saturn, and Pluto in your House of Dreams, the likelihood is that this battle will be continuing for a while longer. The good news though is if you can hear what Mercury Retrograde is trying to tell you now then some very meaningful insights await in regards to improving your relationships with others and feeling better about yourself. Venus in sensual Taurus and your House of Communication could represent the influence of someone who can help you let go of some of those anxieties you have always thought were just who you are, when in actuality they really represent certain coping mechanisms and who you have learned to be. Things are different now, maybe it’s time for you to be different as well?

Aries- The Sun enters your sign this week where it will immediately be confronted by Mars and Saturn (aka “The Malefics”). Pay careful attention to your frustration levels now as the archetypal optimist and skeptic within you try to establish their respective philosophies. Mercury and Venus are also in your sign this week with the former going station/retrograde and the later squaring Pluto, which could lead to some very testy confrontations if you feel you are being denied what you believe you have earned. Neptune will also be a culprit for you this week, first when it combines with a Taurus Moon to remind you of what you don’t have and secondly when it aligns with a Cancer Moon to help you feel angry about it. Mr. Saturn usually doesn’t recommend drinking alone, but it might be a better idea than killing someone.

 

Taurus- As Mercury goes station/retrograde for you behind the scenes and falls just short of a square with Pluto, you could be remembering someone from the past and a misunderstanding you both had. Neptune aligning with the Moon twice this week (first in your sign and then later on in Cancer) could have you feeling sentimental about this situation as you ponder how things might have gone differently. Let Jupiter Retrograde aligning with Pluto remind you that in order to have become who you are now, things back then played out exactly as they were meant to. As the Sun passes behind the scenes for you and squares Mars in your House of Philosophy, try to take solace in making a commitment to move on and not make the same mistakes twice.

 

Gemini- When the Sun enters your House of Dreams in the middle of the week it will be rapidly approaching squares to both Mars and Saturn, meaning that for every kilowatt of energy you spend fantasizing, an exponentially larger force will be exerting the realization of responsibility upon you. Mercury going station/retrograde in Aries would suggest that the more carefully you’re willing to review what your next move should be, the more likely that Jupiter Retrograde aligning with Pluto will help you to discover some new resources you may have previously overlooked. Neptune conversing this week with both the Moon in Taurus and the Moon in Cancer will be all about listening to your intuition. To illustrate this, Mr. Saturn would add a Taoist quote he loves, “Strength knows how to bide its time, while weakness feels a need to act.”

 

Cancer- The Sun enters your House of Public Image this week to join Mercury Retrograde, Venus, and Uranus so be prepared for others to start looking at you differently. No, you won’t be having a zit outbreak or a succession of bad hair days, it’ll be more like the person you always knew you could be will suddenly be there for everyone to see. A life change that you’ve been working on behind the scenes for awhile is about to come to fruition, so be sure to pinch yourself and start realizing that someday is now! With Jupiter Retrograde aligning with Pluto take stock of all you’ve learned over the past months while you were struggling to evolve with your circumstances and then clearly realize that you are a warrior and you have prevailed. It would also be a good idea to remember who was there for you and who wasn’t through your various initiations and then make sure you dole out your extremely valuable friendship accordingly.

 

Leo- As the Sun enters your House of Philosophy and approaches the Spring Equinox, be willing to take on whatever you feel is holding you back rather than just complaining about it as though it were an irrefutable natural law. With Mercury now in retrograde in that same Philosophical House, this would be a perfect time to question everything you believe, especially if those beliefs are not making you happy. Likewise, Jupiter Retrograde in your House of Symbolic Foundations moving closer to Pluto could help you realize that you’ve only misplaced something you thought was lost; like your unique individuality. Be open this week as Neptune aligns with the Moon in both Taurus and Cancer, you could find yourself being visited again by an artistic inspiration you haven’t felt in a long time. You don’t have to do a Gauguin, but you should start making time to nurture your innate creativity.

 

Virgo- When the Sun enters your House of Death and Transformation this week that will make 4 major planets currently in that House for you. One of them will be Mercury Retrograde, another will be the Sun squaring Mars and Saturn in your House of Creativity, while the third will be Venus, who in turn will be flirting with the 4th , that wild and crazy guy Uranus. At this point if you’re not willing to change something in your life, you could inadvertently be asking to have a brick fall out of the sky and hit you in the head. Ouch!!! In other words, things can’t (and won’t) stay the same. If romance has been lacking in your relationship then let Neptune help you out as he first aspects the Moon in Taurus and then the Moon in Cancer. If you’re stuck in a boring job let Jupiter Retrograde and Pluto in your House of Creativity help you re-do that resume, or perhaps start acting on an idea you’ve been harboring that’s all dressed up with no place to go. In short, you can’t go wrong if you commit to defining this week with a verb (whatever that may mean to you).

 

Libra- This week you have 4 planets in your House of Relationships squaring 3 planets in your House of Home and Family. On the relationship side there is the Sun, Mercury Retrograde, Venus, and Uranus, while at home you have Pluto, Saturn, and Mars. Mr. Saturn would venture to say that some serious life changes have either served to significantly strengthen a relationship or else sever it (perhaps permanently). Either way you have learned the power of sacrifice so that now you understand the true meaning of love is forgiveness. Congratulations, this new sense of humility you have developed (which was probably discovering that you don’t need to be right all the time) will serve you very well when this whirlwind period is over. Rest assured that all is as it should be as Jupiter Retrograde in your House of Self Worth prepares the student within you so the teacher within you can appear.

 

Scorpio- With Pluto, Saturn, and Mars in your House of Communication squaring the Sun, Mercury Retrograde, Venus, and Uranus in your House of Work and Routines, a lot is being expected of you now and those who want something have no problem letting you know about it. Of course your control oriented nature wants to be all things to all people, yet the power of being able to say “no” at this time could be what prevents you from being taken away in a straight jacket. Neptune in your House of Creativity will motivate you to be helpful in novel ways, just make sure you prioritize those who are worth your time and those who aren’t. Your sign rules sinners and saints, try to refrain from being the later to save the former.

 

Sagittarius- In the middle of the week the Sun will enter the sign of Aries and join Mercury Retrograde, Venus, and Uranus in your House of Creativity, which is a lot of dynamic energy at your disposal. Now the question is, where should you direct it? Pluto, Saturn, and Mars are all in your House of Self Worth so how about asking yourself (and perhaps even your employers) what am I worth and if I’m not getting that, why not? An answer to this question could be revealed on the home front as Neptune shows how you can be overly accommodating to the demands of others while ignoring your own needs. Mr. Saturn would suggest you eventually go to therapy about this aspect of your character, but for now how about pushing for a promotion or even looking for another job?

 

Capricorn- Having Pluto, Saturn, and Mars all in your sign now will make you nothing if not somewhat dissatisfied, just like having the Sun, Mercury Retrograde, Venus, and Uranus all in your House of Symbolic Foundations right now will make you nothing if not impetuous; see the problem? Of course Neptune in your House of Communication early in the week will help you overlook what you’d prefer not to see, especially as it aspects the Lunar Arc moving through your Houses of Creativity, and Work. The buck will stop though in your House of Dreams when Jupiter Retrograde aspects Pluto and you are forced to re-evaluate your current position in regards to where you had planned to be when you started this journey you are presently on. As a now departed Capricorn once sang, “Watch the ripples change their size but never leave the stream.”

 

Aquarius- Ruled by both Saturn and Uranus each of you Water Bearers has the potential to be either a dictator or a rebel depending on the circumstances. Such extremism is probably most true for you right now with Saturn, Pluto, and Mars behind the scenes squaring the Sun, Mercury Retrograde, Venus, and Uranus all in your House of Communication. As a result, your karmic lesson at this time could very well be that the more obsessed you are with accomplishing something (whatever that may be) the more you probably feel subconsciously that you are not good enough for it. Of course you will reject this suggestion outright, probably even laugh at it, but the simple fact is that pathological people usually have no idea they are pathological. And since you Aquarians take special pride in believing that you know yourselves better than any other sign, I think it would be best to stop here.

 

Pisces- If dreams are about looking up at a mountaintop then accomplishments are about looking down from one. This has never been truer than now as Saturn, Pluto, and Mars in your House of Dreams watch you make the arduous climb toward their exalted perch, while at the same time Mercury Retrograde and Uranus in your House of Self Worth complain over the fact that you’re not there yet. At this point enter Neptune, the planet of dreams (and your ruler), which is currently in your sign. Be careful not to let your impatience spin excuses that sound practical but would essentially add up to you either chickening out or blaming circumstances for making things too hard. A word to the wise, listen to Jupiter Retrograde in your House of Philosophy as he sings you a little song, “The harder they come, the harder they fall, one and all…..one and all.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #12 Weekly Horoscopes for 11/27-12/3, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes 11/27- 12/3, 2017

 

Hi kids!!! It’s terrific to have you back at Mr. Saturn’s Stars!!! The Holidays are officially under way, but before we begin with this week’s horoscopes I would like to share some things that have been on my mind.

First, has anyone ever noticed that the letters in Santa can be rearranged to spell Satan? What’s that about? Furthermore, Santa is this old man who traditionally encourages little children to sit on his lap. You think all this #metoo stuff is going to catch up with Kris Kringle the way it has with seemingly every other older white guy in power? I mean he’s already been caught kissing Momma underneath the mistletoe more than once. I would also bet that no matter what he does or how many accusers come forward, there will still be people who’ll leave cookies and milk out for him on Christmas Eve. What a world, huh?

I got nothin…

 

Aries- The angst you’ve been feeling lately is going to make it very difficult to control yourself this week as volatile Mars in your House of Relationships moves closer to a frustrating opposition with erratic Uranus. Mr. Saturn and Mercury will try to talk some sense into you, although what they’ll have to say may be more about what you’re secretly afraid of rather than the kind of pep talk you’d prefer to hear. The Sun in Sagittarius moving into a square with Neptune won’t help matters much, especially over the weekend when they both form a hallucinatory T-square with the Full Moon in Gemini. Let the illusions begin! Jupiter in trine with Neptune will try to introduce some compassion into this never-ending therapy session, so try having a little forgiveness for your self. As Mr. Saturn would say,

How much of our fear

Is simply the learning curve

For finding our strength?

Taurus- As the Moon passes through your sign this week stability will be at the forefront of your concerns. Letting go of unreasonable fears associated with being unstable will also be a challenge as Mars and Uranus move closer to a very testy opposition in your Houses of Hidden Feelings and Daily Routines. Saturn conjunct with a Mercury Station/Retrograde should give you fresh eyes with which to look at an old problem that could appear over the weekend as a Sagittarius Sun opposes a Full Moon in Gemini and both of them square Neptune in your House of Dreams. A Jupiter/Neptune aspect in psychic Scorpio and sensitive Pisces respectively could help you finally understand that what you’re currently faced with is not an old problem haunting you, but rather a new you trying to break free of old misconceptions. Mr. Saturn’s advice?… Breathe.

Gemini- Mr. Saturn conjunct with a Mercury Station/Retrograde in your House of Relationships along with erratic Uranus opposing Mars could have you jumping to all sorts of conclusions about how you’ll never find the right person to have a storybook relationship with. The worst case scenario here is that the Gemini Full Moon squaring Neptune over the weekend will find you laying at the bottom of yourself like a forgotten prisoner in a Third World jail. Of course this isn’t true, but the only way you’ll get to that light at the end of the tunnel is to embrace life rather than withdraw from it. A Jupiter/Neptune trine will be there to help with your healing if you’re willing, so, as Mr. Saturn bangs some hopeful chords on the piano the song he’s singing is for you…”When you’re alone and life is making you lonely you can always go…Downtown!”

Cancer- The world under your feet is shifting like the undertow at the beach, yet remember you are a crab and your nature has always been able to survive in the turbulent surf. As a crustacean you can seem tough on the outside but you are really soft on the inside, so make sure you are taking care of yourself emotionally during this very challenging time. Or I should say let someone else take care of you for once. A loving and sensitive Jupiter/Neptune trine would suggest that you are on the verge of a new sense of purpose in life, although don’t think you will discover this inspiration by digging for it. Let it come to you like the waves that always find the shore. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you….<3

“If I seek knowledge

Perhaps it’s there, if it finds

Me the truth is here

Leo- The pressure for you this week will be between what needs to be done as opposed to what you’d like to do. With the Sun, Mercury, and Mr. Saturn all in your House of Creativity and Uranus in your House of Philosophy, you’re brimming with great ideas and have lots of energy to express your self. However, with the coming Full Moon in Gemini ready to square Neptune and oppose the Sun, as well Mercury about to go Station/Retrograde, you may just feel a need to defer your desires and put someone else first. Just make sure this someone is worthy of your sacrifice. Your natural leadership skills and compassion make you an easy mark for manipulators who like to play the victim and there’s someone like that in your life now. Mr. Saturn would suggest, “Take this time to look deep within yourself to decide what you really want, although make sure you don’t wind up sticking your head up your ass in the process.”

Virgo- With Mr. Saturn and Mercury going through your House of Foundations you have been in the midst of reconstructing your life for a while now. Mars opposing Uranus in your money houses (specifically earnings and shared resources respectively) are making you anxious regarding the investments you’ve made as of late in both time and money. Realize though that the transformation you’re hoping for may not be able to fully come about until you’re willing to stand up to a contradictory (or even controlling) partner and take charge of a situation that was originally your idea. This will be highlighted when the Sun, the Full Moon in Gemini, and Neptune all align in a tense T-square involving your Houses of Public Image, Home, and Relationships. Mr. Saturn would suggest that right now the obstacles facing you are not the undetermined external factors around your ultimate goal, but rather your own confidence (or lack thereof) about what you deserve.

Libra- Mars in your sign has been pushing you forward, but an opposition from Uranus in Aries has been dealing you one unexpected obstacle after another. At the same time Saturn and Mercury in Sagittarius have been teaching you some invaluable lessons and helping you to grow. When Mercury goes Station/Retrograde at the end of the week you should take the time to consider if you have been making all the changes you really need to. Jupiter in your House of Earnings is a blessing and Venus joining the Sun in Sagittarius should add an air of optimism, however the Full Moon in Gemini squaring Neptune to end the week might leave you feeling a little worried regarding your future prospects. Saturn inching toward Capricorn at the lowest point in your chart is certainly a downer, so expect your energy and optimism to be low for the next couple of weeks. Mr. Saturn would say that your life now is kind of like the sixties song, “California Dreaming,” sad words with a snappy melody, the point being that you keep dancing in the rain like Gene Kelly until things get better.

Scorpio- Jupiter in your sign aligning with Neptune is making you feel more vulnerable than you’d like right now, however, understand this isn’t about you being weak. Instead it’s about realizing that the true nature of strength is when you can allow yourself to be honest in your feelings without beating yourself up. Mars opposing Uranus could be creating a lot of frustration over a situation that’s beyond your control, although again the thing to understand here is that your frustration isn’t changing anything as the world turns. Saturn in your House of Self Worth is enhancing this tendency to beat yourself up, so when the Full Moon squares Neptune over the weekend don’t be surprised when Mr. Saturn takes you down memory lane and queues up the old Animals hit, “I’m just a soul whose intentions are good… Oh Lord!.. please don’t let me be misunderstood…”

Sagittarius- Mr. Saturn’s stay in your sign will be over in approximately three weeks and then you’ll be good for another 28 years. In the meantime though he is going to make sure that you learn every lesson you possibly can. Mercury going Station/Retrograde in your sign during this period will further intensify Mr. Saturn’s tutorial, while at the same time a Mars/Uranus opposition will serve to inspire your usual resistance when you’re confronted with having to do anything you don’t want. A Jupiter/Neptune trine followed by Neptune squaring the Full Moon in your House of Relationships over the weekend should cap this off as a perfect week to simply blame everything on your doppelganger, after all, you’ve never met him or her.

Capricorn- You are a resilient sign, however, with Uranus camped out at the bottom of your chart for the last few months it has kind of been been like skateboarding down a gravel incline. Mercury retrograde in your House of Secrets for the next 3 weeks may not be much fun either as you attempt to solve a mystery where you are both the victim and the perpetrator. It won’t take Sherlock Holmes or Phillip Marlowe to figure out this one though; the obvious arch villain here is responsibility. The good news though is that Jupiter trine Neptune will help you solve this case and forgive yourself in the process! There might even be a reward as well, specifically enough self-love to get you out of the “Town Without Pity” you’ve been stuck in. After a Film Noir week like this, the tendency would be to have a spree. Fair enough, but with a Gemini Full Moon squaring Neptune to end the week Mr. Saturn would advise having Ray Donovan on speed dial…just sayin’.

Aquarius- With Jupiter in your House of Public Image aligning with Neptune in your House of Self Worth you are bound and determine to establish your legend. A Mars/Uranus opposition combined with a Saturn/Mercury pairing will further motivate you to put on a sandwich board, bang a drum, and toot a horn to try and draw as much attention to yourself as possible, but to what end? Be careful when the Sun squares Neptune that you don’t start believing your own hype, because when those two pull up to form a stressful T-square with the Full Moon over the weekend you may wind up crying the “Tears of a Clown” all by yourself. When Mercury goes retrograde over the weekend as well he won’t hesitate to say “I told you so” as you learn “self-worth” and “the approval of others” are not the same thing. Mr. Saturn is cueing up a song now, check out the lyrics…”When the truth is found to be lies and all the joy within you dies…Don’t you want somebody to love?”

Pisces- Your ruling planet is Neptune, the God of the Sea, who symbolizes both illusion and higher consciousness. In other words, sometimes you have to do something really stupid in order to learn anything at all. Jupiter in your House of Philosophy aligning with Neptune could help you realize this about yourself so that hopefully you’ll wise up and stop taking for granted someone you depend on. A Mars/Uranus opposition going on in your Money Houses while Mercury slows down to a Station/Retrograde will also be forcing you to re-examine your financial responsibilities. In short, this week will seem like you’re stuck in a hall of mirrors so that no matter where you turn you can only see yourself. How long it takes for you to realize your immaturity will be, as Frank Zappa once said, “The crux of the biscuit.” In the meantime, Mr. Saturn is going to wax nostalgic with some Beatles…”the Love you take is equal to the Love you make…”
