Mr. Saturn’s Stars #78 Weekly Horoscopes for 3/25-3/31, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 3/25-3/31, 2019

 

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

The Mueller Report is finally out and will be welcomed this week by Mercury going station/direct conjunct Neptune in Pisces……..Get ready for the Spin Doctors to start spinning their vagaries, alternative facts, claims to Executive Privilege, and well, just plain bullshit!!!  Don’t get discouraged though, we can even up the playing field at the ballot box in 2020………Keep the Bern going!!!

 

Aries- With a little help from the Moon in Sagittarius you should begin the week feeling optimistic, however, as the Lunar Arc progresses into Capricorn certain responsibilities may begin to make their presences felt, which may actually be a good thing for your naturally impetuous nature. As Venus enters Pisces and Mars enters Gemini this week you could feel your head battling with your heart over what course of action to take in a particular circumstance. Be willing to take your time and hold off making any decisions about what to do until the weekend, when Mercury goes station/direct in conjunction with Neptune and they both align with Saturn. This aspect is all about intuition and logic working together to find a truly holistic solution, so look to let the problem fully explain itself  to you before you attempt to determine what the solution should be.

 

Taurus- Uranus wandering unaspected in your sign at this time is probably causing you to feel either anxious or irate, both of which are ultimately illusions. Keeping that in mind, let Saturn in your House of Philosophy be your rock as he aligns with Visionary Neptune and Mercury going direct in the creative sign of Pisces and your House of Dreams, all of which are about finding and developing the necessary spiritual and emotional discipline to keep your insecurities at bay and your confidence leading the way. As the Lunar Arc ends the week squaring Uranus, be willing to try something different in pursuit of your bliss. After all, the secret of a successful life is choosing what makes you happy rather than settling for what others will accept about your tastes.

 

Gemini- As Mars enters your sign this week it will probably feel like the horse has been let out of the barn just when you needed to hitch it to the wagon to get going some place. When Venus enters the empathetic sign of Pisces later on it should help you to realize that if you can manage to remain calm and wait a little, that dumb old horse will probably end up chowing down in a nearby pasture and you’ll be able to gather him up soon enough. In other words, patience will be the key here, so let disciplined Saturn in your House of Transformation exert his unwavering influence on misty Neptune and an erratic Mercury station so that you can move in like a ninja and get everything back in harmony. With both Uranus and Jupiter unaspected in your chart this week, be careful that your anxiety about working a situation out doesn’t get dumped on an unassuming partner who would be willing to help; that is, if you’re willing to communicate what your needs are.

 

Cancer- As Mars enters the cerebral sign of Gemini behind the scenes in your chart and Venus enters the compassionate sign of Pisces and your House of Philosophy, you could find yourself torn about someone close to you who needs help but won’t accept it. Saturn in your House of Relationships will have you feeling responsible for this person, while Neptune and a confusing Mercury Station will tempt you to repeat old patterns with this individual, whereby you insist on helping so they can turn their refusal of aid into blaming you as the reason for their problem. It’s all very complicated, and stressful, but it doesn’t need to be. After all, you could focus on your own problems instead, like for instance an unaspected Jupiter in your House of Health. Just think, instead of wasting your energy on someone who is asking for a hard lesson (and will get it) you could instead focus your efforts on rediscovering a real sense of wellness for yourself (which is yours for the taking).

 

Leo- If you’ve been feeling that something in your life needs to change, then Mars entering your House of Groups and Venus entering your House of Transformation could serve as the necessary whoopee cushion to make you jump up out of your comfortable seat and engage the world. Uranus in your House of Career could bring some unexpected opportunities, however, you need to be out there to capitalize on them. On the reverse side, if you’re not willing to get out there then Uranus could be all about circumstances conspiring to jettison you out there whether you like it or not. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Routines would further speak to circumstances changing, although unlike the Colorado River going through the Grand Canyon you don’t have all the time in the world to make your masterpiece. Change in your life now will be more about revolution than evolution so get ready, it’s liable to be a bumpy ride!

 

Virgo- If you’ve been planning to make a move either creatively or romantically, the time is now! Mars will be leaving your House of Philosophy and entering your House of Public Image, while Venus will be leaving your House of Routine and entering your House of Partnerships, putting them both into a dynamic square with one another so that the time for talking the talk is over; get ready to walk the walk! Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity will be aligning with both visionary Neptune and communicative Mercury, so be ready to either pitch a creative project that’s close to your heart or pitch a little woo to someone you’ve a crush on. The Lunar Arc will begin the week with dynamic Jupiter and also end the week with the King of the Planets as it moves from your Symbolic Foundation through your House of Romance and then on to your House of Service…Like the Dylan song say’s, “Everybody has to serve somebody.” The good news here is that you’ll get to pick your heart’s desire if you’re willing to go for it!!!

 

Libra- As Mars and Venus change signs this week and move into a square in your Houses of Philosophy and Routines respectively, you’ll likely be motivated to find a better and more efficient way to perform a daily chore, or perhaps even be inspired to expand your world view beyond your immediate surroundings. A big reason for this sudden upswing in your intellectual curiosity derives from the revolutionary Planets, Saturn and Pluto, being in your Symbolic Foundations area for the last year. Add to that Neptune and Mercury conjunct in the visionary sign of Pisces and at this time in your development you’re all about finding the Holy Grail of whatever you’re involved in, whether that be the best way to clean a floor or clean your soul. Jupiter in your House of Communication will make you want to tell the world about your discoveries and as the King of the Planets flirts with the Lunar Arc this week you could feel particularly inspired to write…….So, what are you waiting for?

 

Scorpio- Mars will be entering your House of Transformation this week and when he does he’ll be squaring Venus entering your House of Creativity, which could mean that the difficulties you’ve been experiencing as of late may end up acting as the motivation for some future artistic efforts. Often adversity makes us long for beauty and harmony all the more and, as a result, we come to appreciate things we may have previously taken for granted or overlooked. Perhaps for the first time in your life you’re contemplating your mortality and it’s causing you to think more critically about the processes of life? Saturn and Pluto together in your House of Thinking along with Neptune and a Mercury station in your House of Creativity would suggest that perhaps your thoughts could be the stuff of art. Why don’t you use some of the time you now have on your hands to express the discoveries your heart has been making?

 

Sagittarius- When Venus enters your House of Home and Family and squares Mars entering your House of Relationships, you could find yourself being challenged even more than usual by the demands made on you at this time by someone at home. This is because you’re finally beginning to realize that the current situation isn’t about doing something for someone else who can’t do for themselves, but rather that your life has been usurped by someone who simply refuses to pull their own weight. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth should give you the necessary spine to stand up for yourself in this situation, let’s just hope that Mercury finally going direct in your House of Foundations will help you to see how you’re getting played by someone who’s just taking advantage of your better nature. At the beginning of the week the Moon in your sign may have you feeling guilty about all this, but perhaps by the time she gets into your House of Communication and aligns with Jupiter in your sign you’ll be able to speak your truth and then live it, regardless of what anyone else may think.

 

Capricorn- You’ve been put through a lot of changes in the last year and as Mercury goes station/direct this week conjunct with Neptune in your House of Communication you may finally be willing to talk about it with someone, either a therapist or an audience, depending on your proclivity for airing your private life. Jupiter behind the scenes has been awakening your philosophical nature and as he aligns with the Lunar Arc this week you should be able to overcome any shyness you might have about other people actually finding your innermost thoughts interesting. As Uranus enters your House of Creativity and aligns with Venus moving into your House of Communication, being interesting or, for that matter entertaining, shouldn’t be a problem for the next few years, so don’t be shy about opening your mind (or your mouth) people will love it.

 

Aquarius- As Venus leaves your sign this week and moves into a square with Mars entering your House of Creativity, you could be inspired to create a work of art or tell a story about some unique experiences you’ve had. For the last year or so Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes have been causing you to go through a lot of internal changes and as they both align with Neptune and a Mercury station/direct in your House of Self Worth, you are finally getting some perspective on what these changes might ultimately mean as you move forward into the future. The Lunar Arc this week will begin in your House of Dreams, where it will conjunct Jupiter before eventually ending the week in your sign, where it will manage to remain in beneficial aspect to the King of the Planets, meaning that as you reflect on where you’ve been over the last year you will likely also realize that worrying about the future is a waste of time, especially when you can be busy creating it in the present…..So what are you waiting for? Get to work!!!

 

Pisces- Mercury will be going station/direct this week in your sign, where it will conjunct Neptune and likely make you feel like Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole. Misconceptions you may have had about a situation or a person could suddenly become clearer, or else something you were quite sure of could suddenly become uncertain. While this is no doubt a topsy-turvy aspect, don’t worry, Saturn and Pluto in your House of Groups will keep you busy fulfilling responsibilities that are quite real and should keep you grounded no matter how much fog and confusion Neptune and Mercury can come up with. Jupiter in your House of Career will have help from the Moon all week, so don’t be surprised if some of the vagueness this week ends up revealing an unexpected opportunity arriving at your doorstep. As the saying goes, “Truth is stranger than fiction.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #63 Weekly Horoscopes for 12/3-12/9, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/3-12/9, 2018

  

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

 

Aries- The Lunar Arc will begin the week in your House of Transformation and the sign of Scorpio, likely making you both ambitious and a little insecure at the same time. The New Moon will occur in your House of Philosophy, where it will square Mars behind the scenes in flakey Pisces, meaning your doubts could get the best of you for a time, although when the Moon finishes up the week in your House of Career all should be well again as she first conjuncts Saturn and then Pluto, assuring that all your hard work that was originally motivated by fear will ultimately pay off. Just try not to make it a habit to use such negative re-enforcement to get things done.

 

Taurus- You don’t like change, but if you can manage to go with the flow this week you might discover that evolution is your friend. Mars and Neptune transiting together through your House of Groups could bring worries and/or conflicts in regards to your role in a project, especially if you let the New Moon and expansive Jupiter in your House of Transformation convince you that things are against you. Venus entering your House of Relationships and moving closer to Saturn in your House of Philosophy should provide a stabilizing influence, so take a deep breath and try to realize that if you don’t fear the process then there’s no reason to fear the outcome.

 

Gemini- Trust may be a big issue for you this week as Mars and Neptune together in your House of Public Image move into position to square the New Moon in your House of Partnerships. In addition, Mercury stationing and then inconjuncting Uranus retrograde may make you feel that someone is about to betray you, however, rather than going into fight or flight mode, instead take stock of where you may be vulnerable and batten down the hatches. Slow moving Saturn and Pluto have been transiting your House of Transformation for some time, so the writing has been on the wall for a while that a shake-up was inevitable. Realize that your old defense mechanisms aren’t going to work so well anymore so don’t revert to them.  As Mr. Nietzsche used to say, “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.”

 

Cancer- There could be either a melodrama or a farce this week at work, so try to remain in the audience if at all possible, that way you can stay safe and be entertained at the same time. On the other hand, Neptune and Mars together in your House of Philosophy squaring the New Moon in your House of Routines could have you feeling quite depressed watching the nonsense that goes on between people, especially since it’s making you realize that the environment you’re currently in is not one in which you can thrive. As Venus enters your House of Creativity and moves into alignment with Saturn in your House of Partnerships, use this time you have now on the sidelines to explore what may be going on at other venues. Maybe you can find something this season at the North Pole; that’s always a happy place to work.

 

Leo- Saturn and Pluto passing through your House of Work for the next little while would indicate that for your overall well being it is important for you to be doing something that is both challenging and transformative, as opposed to just anything that can provide a paycheck. If you don’t believe me then Mars and Neptune together in your House of Transformation squaring the New Moon in your House of Creativity should provide the necessary kick in the ass to convince you. I mean haven’t you noticed that the only time you don’t feel either tired or hopeless is when you’re not wasting your time and energy doing something that has absolutely no meaning for you? This weeks Lunar Arc is all about you confronting your creative frustration for what it is and not just wasting it by letting off steam on the weekends, that is, if you’re willing to admit, “You’re mad as hell and you’re not going to take it anymore!”

 

Virgo- This weeks Lunar Arc will begin in your House of Communication, so if there is anything that needs to be said to someone close to you try not to avoid that discussion. When the New Moon hits in your House of Home and Family and squares both Neptune and Mars in your House of Relationships, don’t let someone else’s negativity or hopelessness become yours. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity will help you to turn lemons into lemonade if you can draw the necessary boundaries between you and a loved one who has, shall we say, some control issues. Recognize the fear that’s underneath their need to dominate and then remind yourself that you’re not afraid. Be “Your own personal Jesus, Someone to hear your prayers, Someone who cares.” After all, that’s what Love is, right?

 

Libra- Saturn and Pluto at the bottom of your chart have been shaking things up for a while like they are your own custom made earthquake. There will be even more fireworks this week as the Lunar Arc will begin in your House of Self Worth and then climax in your House of Communication, where it will square both Mars and Neptune in your House of Work and Daily Routines. You can always mange to get righteous about injustices against others, but what about your own injustices against yourself? Don’t look so confused. If you consider all the doubts you’re harboring in that overactive imagination of yours about where your life is going, what do you think that represents, except an injustice against yourself? Face it, an unknown future is what forces you to get to know yourself. The time has come Libra to look in the mirror and see your dreams looking back at you, not just your blemishes.

 

Scorpio- If you’ve been depressed as of late because you can’t figure out what to do with your life, then this week will either make a light bulb go off over your head or else bring a little raincloud to follow you around just like in the cartoons. The Moon beginning the week in your sign will activate your desire to know and attain, although when the New Moon occurs in your House of Self Worth and squares both Mars and Neptune in your House of Creativity, you could get mighty depressed if you don’t have anything to show for all your wanting. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Thinking are about revolutionizing your perspective first and then your surrounding world, so give yourself a break and stop with all the self-recrimination and judgment.  The Poet Rumi used the metaphor of wine all the time in his work, that’s because people are like making fine wine and that takes time; Don’t worry, your vintage is coming.

 

Sagittarius- Mercury stationing in your House of Confinement and inconjuncting Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity should have you feeling all wonky and trembling inside, like the first shudders under the ocean that eventually turn into a Tsunami hundreds of miles away. Instead of miles though let’s think in terms of time, meaning how long will it take before that wave hits to transform your world and wash away all your sadness? The New Moon this week will be in your sign and when it squares both Mars and Neptune in your House of Home and Foundations you may start to realize that this metaphorical storm has been building in you for a while and those around you who haven’t been paying attention may just end up becoming the not so innocent victims of a natural disaster; natural in so far as Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth set the alarm for this some time ago……wake up, it’s time to evolve!

 

Capricorn- Saturn and Pluto in your sign are insuring that you will evolve appropriately, whether that means going nice or kicking and screaming. With the New Moon this week occurring behind the scenes in your House of Confinement and squaring both Mars and Neptune together in your House of Thinking and Communication, be prepared to have to get pissed off before you put your ass in gear and get motivated toward some positive change. Once you get going though it will be beautiful, and with Venus entering into Scorpio and your House of Dreams, you may just end up attracting the sort of supportive partner you need. Oh, I don’t mean a home maker who will take care of everything for you, I‘m thinking more of someone who can moonlight occasionally as a dominatrix and crack that whip on you whenever it’s necessary. Ooh la la.

 

Aquarius- You pride yourself as being in mastery of your emotions, however, this week everyone may just get to see what a whining little b*tch you can be. The reason for this will likely be the New Moon in your House of Dreams being hidden behind the Sun as it squares the gloom and doom twins, Mars and Neptune, in your House of Self Worth. You had such high hopes and now you are doomed forever! Oh brother, hopefully Saturn and Pluto in hard ass Capricorn behind the scenes will give you all the tough love you need to get back in the saddle and break that mustang! Sorry for being so heavy on the metaphors, but if you can play it close to the vest this week Venus entering into the sign of Scorpio and your House of Career could bring you just the opportunity you’ve been looking for from someone who needs a real tough cookie not a cream puff.

 

Pisces- How much does it cost when all you want is everything? The New Moon this week will be in your House of Career and as it squares both Mars and Neptune in your sign be prepared for a shut down if you’ve been burning the candle at both ends trying to get yourself ahead, especially if what you’ve been donating most of your time to doesn’t pay the bills. Saturn and Pluto together in your House of Dreams will be pushing forth a conservative agenda at this time, meaning that “There is a time to every purpose under heaven”; in other words, all play and no work makes jack a poor boy, so get down to some of that dull stuff you’ve been neglecting…….it’s important too!

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 #31 Weekly Horoscopes for 4/9-4/15, 2018

Weekly horoscopes for 4/9-4/15, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Welcome to another week of Mr. Saturn’s Stars. Spring has been with us now for a bit and as a Poet once wrote,

“April is the cruelest month, breeding

Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing

Memory and desire, stirring

Dull roots with spring rain.”

Not to mention frigging snow as well! At any rate, let’s try to get some insight into those memories and desires we all have and stir some of those dull roots with some new horoscopes. Ready?… Steady…. Let’s go!!!

 

 Aries- As the Sun in your sign this week squares Pluto you will likely be feeling both ambitious and impatient. Add to this the fact that Mercury (also in your sign) will be going station/direct in an extended square to Saturn in your House of Career and it’s likely that there could be some unexpected obstacles in your way as well. With Venus transiting through her home sign of Taurus and your house of Self Worth, the question you need to be asking yourself at this critical juncture is, what’s more important, recognition or money? How you answer this could make a world of difference, especially if someone you’re depending on turns out to be a flake and losing it with them could end up having some inconvenient financial consequences. Let Neptune behind the scenes help you to remain calm by realizing that successful people don’t end up biting off their nose to spite their face.

 

Taurus- With both Mercury Retrograde and Uranus behind the scenes in your chart squaring Saturn and Pluto in your House of Public Image, there is a great unsettledness now as you try to move forward with your agenda amidst a world that seems adamant about taking its time. Likewise, Venus in your sign aligning with Mars in your House of Philosophy and Neptune in your House of Dreams represents the perfectionist in you that cannot settle for anything less than what you have envisioned. At this point, Jupiter Retrograde in your House of Partnerships could either calm you down and help you see the forest for the trees here, or else end up turning your whole life into a confrontation of irresistible force meets immovable object. Ultimately it’s up to you, but then again that’s where we started. Try to be patient until Mercury goes direct over the weekend, you’ll be glad you did.

 

Gemini- Mercury is your ruling planet and with it going station/direct this week in an extended square to Saturn there could be issues now surrounding what you need as opposed to what a group or situation expects of you. As the Sun squares Pluto and inconjuncts Jupiter you will likely be required to rethink how your hopes and dreams in this situation and consider how they may need to evolve. It is not necessarily about getting what you want or not getting what you want, but instead realizing what a situation can or can’t allow so that everyone involved can end up with what they truly need. The New Moon conjunct Uranus over the weekend in your House of Dreams could bring you some unexpected rewards, just be sure to make a mental note about how useless much of your previous worry and frustration was.

 

Cancer- Venus in your House of Dreams aligning with Pluto and Neptune symbolizes a rebirth as you finally manifest something you had always fantasized about but never thought would actually come to pass. Or did you always know you would attain this goal but instead chose to make yourself suffer by whining about it? As Mercury ends its current retrograde and goes station/direct in an extended square to Saturn, it’s important that you sort out this inner dynamic of constantly taking one step back to go two steps forward. Of course realizing that you do this would make the journey to your next dream a little easier, but more importantly you also need to consciously acknowledge your evolution and realize the strength and creativity it took to get where you are. As the New Moon conjuncts Uranus over the weekend, make sure to pinch yourself and say out loud, “This isn’t a dream, it’s my destiny, and I created it.”

 

Leo- This could be a time of extreme dissonance in regards to your thought patterns, however, the good news is that this unsettledness is probably a harbinger of a whole new frame of mind emerging that will get you out of the rut you’ve been feeling stuck in for a while. Mercury going station/direct in an extended square to Saturn will set the stage for you to challenge authority, while Pluto aligning with Venus in your House of Career will help you find the resources to establish your own sovereignty, at which point you will be ready to be your own boss if you can stand up and face the responsibility. Mars aligning with Neptune is the steam to get to the dream if you’re willing to stoke the fire, so make an effort to break out of your comfort zone where you criticize everything ahead of time so you don’t have to try.

 

Virgo- Venus in your House of Philosophy aligning with Mars in your House of Creativity is an extremely regenerative influence and with Neptune at their midpoint in your House of Relationships this is a time when you can bring a great deal of love and healing to all your associations. If there is a downside to this influence it would involve the illusory aspects of Neptune, which could allow you to be taken advantage of by a manipulative though charming person. In other words, you’re nice enough to risk being not nice if that’s what the situation calls for. Mercury will end its retrograde and go station/direct in your House of Transformation, where it will then square Saturn in your House of Creativity, thus making this a time when you need to be preparing for any potential snafu’s before trying to move ahead with a project, especially if you’re going to be dependent on receiving help from someone who has not always been reliable in the past.

 

Libra- Even though the symbol for your sign is the scales and you’re known for always seeking balance, the Astrological joke about Libra is that he or she is simply “an Aries who went to charm school.” Translation; patience is a lesson we all struggle with, so with Mercury in your House of Partnerships going station/direct in an extended square with Saturn in your House of Foundations realize that all the charm in the world isn’t going to help you avoid what needs to be done when it needs to be done. The good news though is Venus in your House of Transformation lining up with Neptune in your work area and Mars at home will likely turn the tide your way if you’re willing to be patient and go with the flow. That is a big if though, especially since Saturn hasn’t given you a break yet this year and your “patience account” is a bit overdrawn. Nevertheless, try to keep the faith and remember the saying, “All things must pass.”

 

Scorpio- A health concern this week could be more of an annoyance than a real problem, although if it gets you to slow down and rest then it is actually a blessing in disguise. Venus in your House of Partnerships aligning with Pluto in your House of Communication is another blessing coming your way although in this case it should come in the form of a long standing admirer finally getting the stones to make their move on you. With Neptune in your House of Romance expect this person to be as corny as Alfalfa courting Darla in The Little Rascals, but don’t worry, you’ll love it……hahaha!!! That is unless the New Moon conjunct Uranus over the weekend brings up your usual control issues….Oh no!!!

 

Sagittarius- Hopefully over the last couple of weeks you’ve been busy preparing your resume, planning your escape from prison, or at least attempting to organize something that will get you out of the rut you’re in. If that’s the case, then Mercury going station/direct this week is the perfect time to recheck everything before you bust your move. Venus in your House of Work aligning with Mars in your House of Self Worth should bring you success as long as you feel you deserve it, meaning that if you don’t speak up how will anyone have a chance to see how smart you are. Remember, it ‘s the squeaky wheel that gets the grease so repeat after me……”SQUEEEEK !!! SQUEEEEEEK !!!

 

Capricorn- With the Sun, Mercury Retrograde, and Uranus all in Aries and your House of Symbolic Foundations squaring Mars, Saturn, and Pluto in your sign, there’s undoubtedly “A Whole Lotta Shakin Goin On” down there in the deep recesses of your being. The question though is what, if anything, are you actually doing differently while the earth is moving under your feet? Hopefully with Neptune in your House of Thinking and Communication you are not trying to maintain an outmoded comfort zone by worrying and complaining and playing the victim, but are instead letting the confrontation between an irresistible force (Aries) and an immovable object (Capricorn) motivate you to find your own sense of truth and peace even if that means going beyond whatever you had formerly thought was sensible. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

 

“Impossible just

Means that your belief structure

Doesn’t have windows”

 

Aquarius- Mars, Saturn, and Pluto are all driving you onward from behind the scenes, but to where? The Sun, Mercury Retrograde, and Uranus are all clamoring in your ear, but what are they saying? Much of what you’re compelled to do now is coming from a place of lack, or not feeling like you’re enough, and it’s important for you to realize that to feel that way is like being a cup with a hole in the bottom-you’ll never be fulfilled. The New Moon with Uranus over the weekend will spur you on to make even greater efforts, but effort and energy are not what you need right now. What you need at this point in time is some peace of mind and a little self-appreciation so you can relax. Venus in your House of Romance may be able to provide this for you now as she entices Mars (and maybe even Saturn and Pluto as well) to take a break. Now if they can stop for a bit, why can’t you?

 

Pisces- Impatience can often be a very negative statement we make about ourselves while not even realizing we are doing it. With Neptune in your sign and Mercury Retrograde in your House of Self Worth squaring Saturn in your House of Dreams, you are clearly mistaking insecurity for ambition now if you insist on pushing ahead instead of reading the writing on the wall that’s trying to tell you to slow down and rethink a few things. Venus moving into a harmonious alignment with Mars indicates that the potential for your success is certainly there, but since these two planets are in stable earth signs it is important now to move slowly and steadily. Assume that any obstacle that arises is a chance to make whatever you’re doing better and not necessarily a verdict on your ultimate success or failure. If you can get that then you can get what you want.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #15 Weekly Horoscopes for 12/18-12/24, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/18 – 12/24, 2017

 

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

For any of you out there who aren’t feeling all this Christmas hype there is an alternative holiday one can celebrate at this time of year if you’re interested. December 17th – 23rd is the annual Feast of Saturnalia, an Ancient Roman holiday that honored the God Saturn (who, by the way, I’m officially related to according to Ancestry.com).

Unlike the crass commercialism and corny trappings of Christmas, Saturnalia featured all kinds of freaky stuff. There was role reversal and behavioral license, like Masters serving Slaves at the celebration banquet, Slaves being able to gamble with their Master’s or even disobey them without fearing punishment, and of course lots of Free Love. According to one source, “Rampant overeating and drunkenness became the rule and a sober person the exception.” My Great, great, great, great Granddad really knew how to throw a party, didn’t he? So, if you’d prefer to abandon social norms this holiday season instead of conforming as usual, then join the conga line to the Temple of Saturn nearest you and debauch de-year away!

 

Aries- With the New Moon, Venus, and Saturn in Sag to start the week and all of them aligning with Uranus in your sign, you will no doubt be feeling invincible, or at least fairly lucky if you can manage to do something like be on the platform at the same time as the train pulls into the station so you won’t be late for work on Monday morning. Enjoy these small victories while they last, because as the week drags on the Moon, Saturn, and then the Sun will all arrive in Capricorn, the sign of responsibility and achievement as well as your House of Career. Pluto is also in Capricorn now, so as the aforementioned planets join the archetype of death and transformation this is a time for you to re-examine your ambitions and direction. Make sure you haven’t become complacent in a situation that affords you comfort and perks but no longer really challenges you. Toward the end of the week when Mercury goes station/direct and briefly angles Neptune and Jupiter, take a moment to consider just how seriously you take yourself and where that falls between fabulous and not good enough as you stand at the velvet rope and wait for Mr. Saturn to let you in.

Taurus- Did you ever see the movie “Network” when the Newscaster played by Peter Finch tells people to stick their heads out the window and yell, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” Are you anywhere near a window? As the Moon, Saturn, and the Sun go into Capricorn and Jupiter and Mars continue their march through your House of Relationships, your grumpiness may be hard to conceal, especially since a volatile, retrograde Uranus has been chained to a radiator in your subconscious for quite awhile now and the neighbors are starting to suspect something. The Lunar Arc this week will highlight the process of how you negotiate your needs in any given situation, which brings us back to the screaming out the window thing; does it need to get to that? As Mercury goes station/direct and nudges Neptune and Jupiter, stop trying to act so nice and instead start being nice to yourself, whatever that may mean and whoever may need to pay for it. “Word!” say’s Mr. Saturn.

Gemini- “Therefore send not to know For whom the bell tolls, It tolls for thee.” The new Moon at the beginning of the week in your House of Relationships will be ringing in the next phase of a romantic partnership, namely commitment and responsibility. The Moon, Saturn, and the Sun will all be entering Capricorn this week and transiting through your House of Shared Resources, so maybe the time has come to make a home with that special someone? Mars and Jupiter in your House of Work slowly aligning with Neptune in your Career area might require you to manage your time between a job that pays the bills and a career that satisfies your soul. You may be frustrated at having to compromise your time, but just like the old chain gangs, Mr. Saturn would suggest you sing some blues to get you through. ”Girl we gotta get out of this place, if it’s the last thing we ever do, we gotta get out of this place, Girl there’s a better life for me and you.”

Cancer- Not that long ago you were complaining that nothing was ever going to change. Well, the time has come to quote a famous Lady who once advised in a classic film, “Buckle your seatbelts it’s going to be a bumpy night.” With the Moon, Saturn, and the Sun joining transformational Pluto in your opposite sign of Capricorn and aligning with Neptune in your House of Travels and Mars and Jupiter in your Creative area, get ready for circumstances to sweep you away into a new phase of your life. Not quite as epic as “Doctor Zhivago,” but what awaits might reveal a destiny you never suspected. Of course you’ll fret about it every step of the way because that’s what you Crabs do, yet once Mercury goes station/direct late in the week and starts to chug ahead toward Uranus don’t be surprised if these unfolding circumstances activate your higher Cancer nature and you come to a stunning realization. Home is wherever the heart is. “Duh-uh,” says Mr. Saturn before he recites your haiku.

“Faith is a haunted

House where we all search in the

Dark with a candle”

Leo- Mr. Saturn and the Sun will move into the sign of Capricorn this week to join Pluto in your House of Health. So how are you feeling? If there is anything your body is trying to tell you make sure you’re listening, because if you don’t Mr. Saturn can be part Nurse and part Sumo Wrestler if necessary to make you a willing patient. Mercury will go station/direct just before the Holiday and square Neptune, so make sure you fulfill your obligations to family. Try to be kind and put up with whatever you have to so that an older person can feel appreciated. They may not be so fabulous now, but they loved you way back when you weren’t so fabulous either. A Pisces Moon on Christmas Eve aligning with Jupiter and Mars may help you to finally see someone for who they truly are instead of who you’d like them to be. Everyone else already knows about this person so let Mr. Saturn get you another glass of wine to help lubricate your naivety through this unbelievable realization.

Virgo- Like Dorothy and her friends being nervous about meeting the Wizard of Oz, the arrival of Saturn into Capricorn and your House of Creativity may have you feeling a little edgy about how a project you’re involved with is going to turn out? Pluto, the planetary archetype of transformation, has already been in this area of your chart for a while, so if you’ve been reading the writing on the wall regarding change then Mr. Saturn will likely be about your dreams coming to fruition, albeit slowly. Just two days after Mr. Saturn arrives in his home sign the Sun will also enter Capricorn, which could help move matters along a little quicker, especially next week when Venus joins the party. Mars and Jupiter in your House of Communication will use Neptune to help spread the word, so if you’re not a success by New Years, don’t fret. Mr. Saturn says you will be the baby wearing the 2018 banner.

Libra- This might sound ominous, but your life is about to change significantly in the coming months, so get ready. The herald of this change will begin this week with none other than Mr. Saturn (Ta-da!!!) entering his home sign of Capricorn and your House of Foundations. Pluto has been there for the last few years setting the stage for this and as Jupiter and Mars in your earnings area and Neptune in the work sphere all move into alignment, the stage is being set for a Quantum Leap regarding how you’re accustomed to thinking about yourself and acting. There’s no way to prepare for this other than to try and be like the surfer who sees the ultimate wave starting to form; put your head down, paddle your ass off, and hope for the best. “Day destroys the night, Night divides the day, try to run, try to hide, Break on through to the Other Side!”

Scorpio- Jupiter and Mars together in your sign now are providing you with a lot of energy. When Saturn and the Sun move into Capricorn during the week and enter your House of Communication, all that energy should finally be finding its focus so that you will be able to advance to the next level in whatever facet of your life you’d like to see improve. Venus in your House of Earnings aligning with Uranus in your House of Work should bring you some tangible dollars and cents recognition in the workplace, either from your current boss or someone else who would like to snatch you away. You will be feeling better than you have in a while, although as Mercury station/direct squares Neptune in your House of Romance, don’t let your good vibe be taken advantage of by a potential suitor who may be offering promises and not much more. As Grace Slick once sang, don’t end up being “A woman with her Greasy Heart Automatic Man.”

Sagittarius- Okay my Centaur friend, what do you want and how much are you willing to do to get it? Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio have been causing you to grind your gears behind the scenes, but now with both Saturn and the Sun moving into Capricorn and your House of Self Worth the time has come to either put up or shut up in terms of what you think you’re capable of. Venus in your sign lining up with Uranus in your House of Fun is making you quite affable, although make sure you’re not putting yourself at a disadvantage by good naturedly agreeing to someone else’s version of you. A Mercury station/retrograde in your sign angling with Neptune will be the last writing on the wall warning you about a manipulative situation at home. After that, Mr. Saturn will have no choice except to serve you with a subpoena to appear before the Court of Common Sense on charges of Felony Gullibility…just sayin’.

Capricorn- Mr. Saturn is coming home to your sign! Are you ready? I’m sorry, that’s a dumb question, of course you’re not ready for Mr. Saturn to be back, who would be? I mean this is Mr. Saturn we’re talking about. Although with the holidays so close maybe he’ll be in a party mood for the remainder of 2017? After all, the only major planet Mr. Saturn will be hanging out with for the rest of this year will be when he shacks up with Venus on Christmas Day (Ooh la la). However, make no mistake about it, he is back and will be making sure that shit gets done. The best way to keep him off your ass would be to enlist the services of Mars and Jupiter in your House of Groups and Neptune in your House of Communication, as they are all in compatible signs and Mars and Jupiter are the kind of hardnosed pros Mr. Saturn appreciates. As a Capricorn you’re a chip off the same old block as Mr. Saturn, so just stay on course for what you’ve been intending over the last few months and enjoy a little Venus yourself over the holiday. Merry Xmas!!!

Aquarius- As Saturn and the Sun enter the hidden part of your chart you could begin to get an inkling of just how much you are driven by the paradox of wanting more because you feel like less. You won’t dwell on this very much, mainly because with Venus in your House of Groups and Uranus in your area of Communications you will be too busy working the room (or the internet) to satisfy the center of attention jones you have going on with Mars and Jupiter in your House of Career and Public Image. Eventually though the curtain will close, the show will end, and there you’ll be, not knowing what to do with yourself without the smell of the greasepaint and the roar of the crowd to give you purpose. This brief moment of alienation will come courtesy of a Mercury station squaring Neptune, although the greater ramifications of this are far too mysterious for you to seriously consider at this time. Just recall what the Oracle told Neo in the Matrix, “you’ll remember you don’t believe in any of this fate crap. You’re in control of your own life…here take a cookie, by the time you’re done eating it you’ll be right as rain.” In other words, don’t worry about it now. Mr. Saturn will be hanging out in your shadows for a while until you’re ready to deal.

Pisces- This week Mr. Saturn will enter your House of Dreams. “What does that mean?” you ask. Imagine being given a charge card with a high credit line and then indulging yourself like a Sultan and maxing it out buying everything you’ve always wanted. When that first bill eventually arrives with interest added on, well, that’s classic Mr. Saturn requiring you to be responsible for your dreams. Now do you understand? Neptune in your sign has set you up for this and Jupiter in your House of Philosophy has fostered the illusion that you’re invincible. The more mundane fact however is that you’re going to have to start being more responsible for a lot of stuff that you don’t want to make time for. Of course you’ll try to charm your way out of growing up, but that will only last as long as it takes Venus to trine Uranus, which will be over by next week. In the meantime what’s that song Mr. Saturn is singing?….”It’s my life and I’ll do what I want/ It’s my mind and I’ll think what I want….” Uh-huh.
