Mr. Saturn’s Stars #68 Weekly Horoscopes for 1/14-1/20, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 1/14-1/20, 2019

 

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

We’re now experiencing the longest government shutdown in our country’s history….After giving it some thought, I would be willing to compromise the money for a wall if it could be built around the Mafia in the White House and the cowardly Republicans in the Senate… then I would add some bars on the windows and the rest of us could get on with being Americans…..what do you think?

 

 Aries- Having Mars in your sign for approximately the next month should give you a significant burst of energy, especially this week as he aligns with Venus in your House of Philosophy to inspire you to believe that the world is your oyster. Add Jupiter to this mix and luck should literally be falling from the skies. In the meantime, Neptune behind the scenes will likely inspire practical Saturn with some extra imagination so that whatever you focus your considerable energy on will likely be a success. The only downside to all this could be a square between Neptune and Jupiter, which might see you as the poster child for the saying, “all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.”  Realize you’re ahead of the curve and try to lighten up.

 

Taurus- Venus in your House of Transformation working in tandem with Mars behind the scenes could make you feel like you need to break out of your daily routine and try something new. Jupiter right there alongside Venus would indicate that thinking outside of the box could lead to some unexpected luck, although try to look before you leap, especially as Neptune in your House of Friends moves into a square with Jupiter and someone who you think has your back actually doesn’t. Be careful. Even though you may be feeling adventurous now, don’t ignore Saturn moving toward Pluto in your House of Philosophy; changes are coming, just try to make sure that you’re going with the flow and not being led around by your impatience.

 

Gemini- As Venus and Jupiter move closer together in your House of Partnerships and align with Mars in your House of Groups, it will be easy for you to believe that you’re pulling all the right strings and that nothing can beat you. The fatal flaw here might be the transit of Neptune through your House of Public Image as it squares both Venus and Jupiter and you slowly start to realize all those people you thought were your friends and allies actually aren’t. In fact, as Saturn and Pluto move through your House of Shared Resources you may actually get quite a rude awakening as you watch the rats you though you were in control of trampling each other to get off your suddenly sinking ship. As the Sun moves into Aquarius to end the week it will be squaring unpredictable Uranus, which could find you under sudden attack from someone you least expected. As you will soon learn, there is no honor among thieves.

 

Cancer- Neptune transiting through your House of Philosophy as of late has probably had you feeling like you don’t know which end is up as you oscillate back and forth between feeling energetic and exhausted. Nevertheless, this week could turn out to be a real surprise as Venus and Jupiter move closer together in your House of Work and slide into a power alignment with Mars in your House of Career. If you’re willing to be a little more aggressive than usual you could manipulate yourself into a better position than you ever thought was possible; have a little faith and let the force be with you. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Partnerships moving into a mutual aspect with Mars will be asking you to rethink the power dynamic in just about all of your relationships. After all, why is it that you’re the only one who feels guilty expressing (and going after) what you need?

 

Leo- As the Sun moves into your House of Relationships you will likely notice that your perspective is changing about your interactions with others. Mars in your House of Philosophy is no doubt fueling this new attitude, especially as he aligns with Venus entering your House of Creativity and you feel a need to re-examine exactly what it is you’re getting out of some of your long term associations. Neptune in your House of Transformation squaring Jupiter in your House of Fun will no doubt burst the bubble that makes you believe you have to take care of everything instead of others doing for themselves, while Saturn and Pluto in your House of Routines will be saying, “enough of this shit” as you leave the vampires to their own devices and hang up the “Out to Lunch” sign.

 

Virgo- Mars in your House of Transformation aligning with both Venus and Jupiter in your House of Foundations are trying to tell you, “if not now, when?” in regards to making a move toward a long held dream. At the same time an extended transit of Neptune in your House of Relationships is squaring Venus and Jupiter and likely making you feel worried about what the reaction of a partner may be when you announce what you want to do. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity would indicate that if you ever hope to change your situation then you should start laying the foundations now. When the Sun enters your House of Routines later in the week and moves into a square with Uranus on the cusp between your Houses of Transformation and Philosophy, the writing will be on the wall for your circumstances to change no matter what you do, so, you might as well take the tiger by the tail instead of waiting to see if he eats you first.

 

Libra- This is the time when you should be reaching out to see if the world is interested in whatever it is you have. Charming Venus and lucky Jupiter are together in your House of Communication and as they combine with Mars in your House of Relationships you should have the charisma and energy to accomplish whatever you have your sights set on. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Foundations would further indicate that the time for meaningful change has come, and as they both align with Neptune in your House of Routines you’ll have the correct mix of imagination and empirical awareness to forge ahead and blaze some new trails. If you’re still worried about how things will pan out try to remember, having confidence means believing in yourself enough to take a chance. After all, sometimes success is an intuitive thing, not a logical one.

 

Scorpio- Venus and Jupiter in your House of Self Worth aligning with Mars in your House of Work this week should end up giving you the golden touch so that everything you attempt will likely yield success. On the other hand, as Neptune squares Jupiter and Venus, make sure you’re not offering all this talent to others out of the goodness of your heart, especially if there could be a little more in it for you. The reality is you’ll probably not going to be offered anything extra for your efforts, which means you’ll have to do a little hustling. Saturn and Pluto together in your House of Communication should give you the chutzpah to broker the optimum deal, while Neptune in your House of Creativity should make you quite charming (in a very non-threatening way) so what are you waiting for? “Show me the money!!!”

 

Sagittarius- As Jupiter and Venus transit your sign this week you’ll likely be sparkling like one of Liberace’s sports jackets. Add to this the fact that Mars is moving through your House of Creativity and it would be fair to say that very little should be able to stop you now, that is, if you can mange not to get distracted. I mention this because Neptune has been lingering for a while at the bottom of your chart, which means that it’s squaring that lucky combo of Jupiter and Venus and making it quite possible that you could feel so good now that you’ll want to relax and goof off instead of pushing ahead and making all this surplus charisma work for you. Let Saturn in your House of Self Worth show you what’s necessary as he barks like a Drill Sargent and cracks his whip, because face it, that’s exactly what your lazy ass needs if you’re ever going to make something of yourself.

 

Capricorn- With Jupiter and Venus behind the scenes in your chart aligning with Mars at your Foundation, you can’t help but feel as if the earth is moving under your feet every time a certain someone gives you that look. At the same time, Uranus on the cusp of your House of Romance is aligning with the Sun in your House of Self Worth, making it feel as if one of Cupid’s arrows has hit your Achilles Heel and you are falling into a topsy- turvy world where you’re as disoriented as Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole. Don’t worry though…in a way it’s kind of fun, isn’t it? There’s nothing like a little romance to make you feel as if you’re being born and dying, all at the same time; totally transcendental, hay? Hahaha.

 

Aquarius- You may get a very important lesson this week about confidence, so make sure you’re paying attention. Your usual approach is to go right after what you want, however, it may actually be in your best interests at this time if you can instead be patient and let the world come to you. Mars in your House of Communication would speak to your ambition, while Venus and Jupiter in your House of Groups would speak to you having a great deal of charm and finesse to direct these desires constructively. Neptune in your House of Self Worth is more about intuition than logic, while at the same time Saturn, Mercury, and Pluto behind the scenes will require you to be patient and attentive. All in all if you can center yourself and go with the flow there should be no stopping you.

 

Pisces- You should feel quite ambitious this week as Mars in your House of Self Worth aligns nicely with charming Venus and lucky Jupiter in your House of Career. However, with Neptune in your sign there is always a chance that you could get distracted, although with Saturn, Mercury, and Pluto all in your House of Dreams you should be able to keep your eye on the prize and move steadily toward achieving your goals. As the Sun enters your House of Secrets later in the week it might be a good idea to reflect on what’s driving you and make sure that all your urges to succeed are coming from a healthy place and not any subconscious feelings of inadequacy or insecurity. Success is feeling good about yourself and then acting on it, not needing to achieve something to feel good about yourself.

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/17-12/23, 2018

 

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

N         A         T          A          S                            

 

Aries- A mysterious stranger could catch your eye this week and even though they have trouble written all over them you will probably take the bait anyway. You can thank Uranus retrograde aligning with the Full Moon in Cancer for this lapse of judgment, as it spurs on how much you just love to try and tame those bad boys (and girls). Venus in your House of Intimacy aligning with romantic Neptune behind the scenes will likely indicate that this affair will be a discreet one, which will probably be a blessing in disguise so that you won’t have to be humiliated in full public view. Saturn in your House of Career is also aligning with Venus, which means that you’ll probably survive this little indiscretion, that is, as long as it doesn’t transpire in the workplace….. Oh no, don’t tell me you’ve pooped where you eat!

 

Taurus- If you’ve been out of circulation for a while, you may just find Cupid delivering you a surprise package when you least expect it. Venus in your House of Relationships aligning with Neptune in your House of Groups will probably mean that you’ll run into this person at some sort of gathering where romance was the last thing you had on your mind, while at the same time Jupiter and Mercury in your House of Intimacy could also mean that this is someone who will get your uniquely nerdy sense of humor….Wow!… The New Moon in your House of Communication it will be in sextile to Uranus retrograde (no, that doesn’t have anything to do with sex) but it will probably mean that the biggest surprise of all here will likely be that you’re not the least bit self conscious with this new person; imagine that!

 

Gemini- With Jupiter and Mercury in your House of Partnerships the tendency now will be for you to try and dominate those around you, especially when Uranus retrograde aligns with the Full Moon and you feel fully convinced that you know absolutely everything and no one else knows anything. Instead, why don’t you let Venus in your House of Work and Neptune in your House of Career explain to you that listening to people will gain their respect far quicker than telling them what to do. Saturn in your House of Shared Resources is also trying to make you aware of certain rules we must all follow and thinking you’re above that will bring the chickens home to roost in your backyard soon enough…..word!

 

Cancer- This weeks Full Moon will be in your sign and as it lines up with Uranus retrograde in your House of Career are you finally ready to do something different so that people will start to see you differently? This especially goes for how you are perceived on the job as Mercury and Jupiter hold hands in your House of Work, so let your freak flag fly and match push for shove with a bully who is about to get schooled that they’re way out of their league. With Venus in your House of Creativity working nicely with Neptune in your House of Philosophy lure any adversaries in with your innate charm so you can kill ‘em with kindness. Like the song goes, “You’re so vicious, you hit me with a flower….. you do it every hour, you’re so vicious.” Mean people are more disarmed by kindness than kind people are by meanness.

 

Leo- As Venus and Neptune align in your Houses of Home and Transformation respectively, the Full Moon in Cancer (the sign of the Mother) will also connect with Uranus retrograde….so… why don’t you take this time to visit someone you have been neglecting (like maybe your Mom, or perhaps someone else you owe a lot to and you just don’t seem to have time for). Jupiter and Mercury holding hands in your House of Fun and Creativity will give you what it takes to be the life of the party, so why not shine some of that Solar charisma y’all got on somebody who loves you and would certainly appreciate it. Not for nothing, but Saturn is also aligning with Venus and those two are about stability, so get back to your roots and realize that without them you couldn’t have grown into the tall tree you fancy yourself now.

 

Virgo- If circumstances aren’t to your liking, then take charge of them now and put your effort where your complaining has been. Of course you shouldn’t go strong-arming anyone, especially since you can be so charming. With that in mind, serve up some of your sugar to a problem child and watch ‘em fall in line. Venus in your House of Communication and Neptune in your House of Partnerships will aid in making you a silver tongued devil, while Saturn in your House of Creativity aligning with Venus should give you the strategic abilities and direction to utilize all your schmoozing to maximum effect. The Full Moon will be in nurturing Cancer (which is your House of Groups and Dreams) so show everyone at work or at home if they really want their interests responsibly served then all they need to do is follow you. See? Like I started out telling you; action talks and bullshit walks.

 

Libra– The Full Moon this week will be in your House of Career and as it aligns with Uranus retrograde in your House of Partnerships, expect a surprise now by way of a recommendation from someone in your past who has always liked you and knows you’re the right person to do whatever a new party needs done. Jupiter and Mercury in your House of Communication will have you inspired and brimming with ideas regarding this new opportunity, while Venus in your House of Self Worth and Neptune in your House of Work will give you all the charisma (and mystique) you’ll need to magickally transform whatever the situation may be to your advantage. I hope you realize that the seeds for this were sown some time ago when both Saturn and Pluto entered your House of Foundations? After all, don’t you remember how your career looked like a vacant lot there for a while? Well, now your experiencing some advance advertising for the coming buildings and businesses…Btw, Congrats on your patience through all this…..yeah, right…hahaha!!!

 

Scorpio- Venus in your sign and Neptune in your House of Romance are currently making you, my dark beauty, into the tempter or temptress extraordinaire. Add Saturn to this mix and you will surely get whatever you’re hoping for, so just make certain all of your pursuers can afford what it takes to be with you. Jupiter and Mercury in your House of Self Worth will give you a sense of dash and panache, while the Full Moon aligning with Uranus retrograde will give the chutzpah to go after what you want if  it turns out no one is offering anything interesting. This all sounds great, perhaps even a little unreal, so you’re thinking, what’s the catch? Not much, but as Mercury gets closer to a square with Neptune next week don’t think you’ll be in this zone forever. One in the hand is worth two in the bush, so grab the best opportunity that’s in front of you and enjoy!

 

Sagittarius- With Jupiter and Mercury in your sign you are popping like a popcorn popper (and that’s a lot of popping) but where are you headed? Saturn in your House of Self Worth aligning with Venus behind the scenes would suggest you start investing in some long term plans, whether that means getting serious with a partner you’ve had for a while or starting to invest some of your money rather than just spending it. The Full Moon will be in your House of Legacies and Transformation so perhaps you should start meditating on the proverb “slow and steady wins the race.” That Full Moon will also be aspecting Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity, so maybe you also need to be thinking about what you need to do differently to honor who you are instead of constantly doing what others expect of you? As a poet once wrote, “….the end of all our exploring/ Will be to arrive where we started/ And know the place for the first time.”

 

Capricorn- The Full Moon this week will be occurring in the nurturing sign of Cancer (your House of Partnerships) where a retrograde Uranus in your House of Symbolic Foundations will most likely test it by bringing up some of the latent fears you have about relationships. Usually when these concerns come out you head for the hills, however, with Venus currently in your House of Dreams aligning with Neptune in your House of Communication, this time you could find the courage to stay and work out the difficulties of a current partnership. Jupiter and Mercury behind the scenes should also be of great help as they assist you to find all the right words to speak your truth and express your need to love and be loved. Namaste.

 

Aquarius- For all you do, this week’s for you. Jupiter and Mercury in your House of Groups should find you (as usual) running around trying to take care of everything for everyone while at the same time ignoring your own needs. Venus in your House of Career aligning with Neptune in your House of Self Worth will be trying to point out the irony of how you depend on all this giving to feel needed, although the real question is will you have to have a breakdown first to realize how unrealistic it is to be available to the world 24/7? The Full Moon in nurturing Cancer and your House of Service will be aspected by Uranus retrograde at your I.C (the root of your chart) meaning that you could indeed have an unpleasant surprise if you’re not willing to slow down and take care of yourself. After all, what good are you to anyone (including yourself) if you’re sick?

 

Pisces- Up until now you’ve been focused on following the normal rules for success, however, this week something may just click where all of a sudden you feel compelled to be a rebel. Jupiter and Mercury in your House of Career and the nutty sign of Sagittarius will likely provide the inspiration for this sudden urge to non-conformity, while the Full Moon in your House of Creativity aligning with Uranus retrograde in your House of Self Worth will provide the necessary chutzpah to fly your freak flag high. Just remember to try and have a sense of humor about whatever it is you’re doing to challenge the status quo, after all, no one appreciates a self righteous reformer who feels it’s their duty to cast aspersions on the foibles of others. Opinions are like noses, everybody has one no matter how convinced you are of holding the higher ground.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #64 Weekly Horoscopes for 12/10-12/16

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/10-12/16, 2018

 

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

 

“The United States Attorney charges:

1. From in or about 2007 through in or about January 2017, MICHAEL COHEN, the defendant, was an attorney and employee of a Manhattan-based real estate company (the “Company”). COHEN held the title of “Executive Vice President” and “Special Counsel” to the owner of the Company (“Individual-1”).

2. In or about January 2017, COHEN left the Company and began holding himself out as the “personal attorney” to Individual-1, who at that point had become the President of the United States.”

Obviously Rump still believes in Santa Claus if he thinks he has been totally cleared of any wrong doing……maybe someone should tell him he’s been a bad boy and will only get coal in his stocking this year (pun intended).

 

Aries- This week could be a little bit of an emotional downer for you with passionate Mars and romantic Neptune behind the scenes trying to catch up with the hopeful, happy Sagittarius Sun in your House of Philosophy; sorry, but whoever it is you think you want will likely end up delivering too little, too late; that is, if you even get anything at all out of this person. Combine that with Mercury in your House of Desire inconjuncting Uranus in your sign and you may just find yourself feeling like having a nervous breakdown or committing a murder……Don’t do either… Venus in your House of Resources moving into alignment with Saturn in your House of Career will likely salvage the week (and your sanity) as they both serenade you with some true wisdom… as the song goes, “Your lovin’ gives me a thrill/But you’re lovin’ don’t pay my bills.”

 

Taurus- Mercury and Jupiter in your House of Transformation will have you envisioning something that may not be entirely realistic as their unbridled optimism causes you to overlook the gloom and doom twins, Mars and Neptune, as they act to conceal the fact that someone around you is hoping to rain on your parade. With quirky and unpredictable Uranus behind the scenes, don’t let yourself be surprised by a brick falling out of the sky and hitting you on the head. It would be best now to follow Saturn’s lead as he turns the tables on Venus, who is trying to seduce him from her boudoir in sexy Scorpio; have modest hopes and desires and it’ll be a lot less likely you’ll be disappointed. Remember, one in the hand is worth two in the bush.

 

Gemini- Don’t put much stock this week in what people say, instead pay attention to what they do. As the Sun transits smiley Sagittarius and your House of Partnerships it will be squaring both Mars and Neptune in your House of Public image, so expect to be misled; just make sure whatever blows up in your face is a result of your own choices and not because you listened to a load of hooey from some snake oil salesman (especially if you’re usually the snake oil peddler, comprende?). Likewise, don’t go threatening anyone just because you may not like what’s going on…..Mercury in your House of Work inconjuncting Uranus retrograde in your House of Groups could bring some unexpected blow back and you may not be as tough as you like to pretend.

 

Cancer- Have you ever heard the expression, “there are more horses asses in the world than horses”? Well, if you haven’t then pay attention this week because a universal truth may just reveal itself to you at work in the form of  someone else’s stupidity beyond your wildest dreams. You can thank the Sun in goofy Sagittarius squaring both Mars and Neptune in obtuse Pisces for this cabaret of crapulousness, just make sure you can hear solid Saturn in your House of Partnerships as he aligns with Venus in your House of Creativity so that you don’t get too caught up listening to the wrong people. Know who you can depend on and who you can’t and let the verbal diarrhea fall wherever it may; just make sure you watch your step and let Jupiter in your House of Work lead you to the high ground.

 

Leo-With three major planets in your House of Creativity, your inspiration is ready to be ignited, just make sure someone doesn’t try to set it smoldering as angry Mars and depressing Neptune in watery Pisces pass through your House of Shared Resources. This undermining could come from someone you look at as a partner, but who is really jealous of you. If you sense someone close is being passive aggressive and trying to make you feel guilty for doing what you want, then you’re probably right. Follow your own drummer and then make a mental note of how angry they get in response. Hold your ground and you’ll finally get to see exactly who you’re dealing with.

 

Virgo- If you’re excited that the holidays are here make sure you don’t let some old scrooge spoil it for you. With a trio of happy planets in your House of Home you’ll likely want to make your nest bright and festive, however, with the Grinch and Max, a.k.a Mars and Neptune in your House of Partnership, someone close to you has probably been wearing their matching “Bah, Humbug” undershirts and briefs since Thanksgiving. With Saturn in your House of Creativity aligning with Venus in your House of Communication, try to roll with their bad attitude for the time being. If they don’t know that Santa doesn’t bring any toys to girls and boys who have been bad, then ph*ck ‘em!

 

Libra- As the year starts to wind down, you may be feeling your energy start to diminish as well. You’re a trooper, so with three active planets in your House of Communication you’ll be trying to make a show of it right up until the old guy brings in the baby, however, with both Mars and Neptune in your House of Work and Health the best thing for you to do to close out the year may just be to rest up and look to come out of the gate right on time with starters pistol in 2019. Venus going through your House of Self Worth and aspecting Saturn in your House of Foundations should help you to realize what you have, even if you did fall a little short of what you wanted this past year. You are loved and appreciated and you will live to fight (and win!) another day.

 

Scorpio- Venus is in your sign and as she comes into alignment with Saturn in your House of Communication, make sure you’re saying what you mean and meaning what you say; it could make all of the difference. This is because the gregarious Sagittarian Sun in your House of Self Worth could likely have an alienating effect on those you’d hope to impress, especially since it will be squaring Mars and Neptune, the champions of mixed messages. It’s not your fault that squares are squares and prudes are prudes, just make sure that you don’t give some holier than thou hypocrite the ammunition they need to project their impotency on you and misinterpret the positive message you’re trying to bring across. No one can think for those who are too lazy to think for themselves, so, as Malcolm X used to say, “Make it plain.”

 

Sagittarius- Before you patch out and go from 0-60 in a matter of seconds, make sure your tires are sound because a blow out  now could be deadly. The Sun, Jupiter, and Mercury in your sign will want to put the pedal to the metal, however, with Mars and Neptune sowing their seeds of illusion where the rubber meets the road, don’t assume the track is in good shape unless you’ve seen so for yourself. Follow Saturn’s lead as he pairs up with Venus and make sure to check ahead of time in order to be certain everything is copasetic with where you want to go and what you have to work with. You’re all about big ideas, just don’t end up like the elephant who gets spooked by a mouse.

 

Capricorn- Having Saturn in your sign for as long as you have has no doubt made you, shall we say, a little conservative. Yet with Venus going back through your House of Groups and Friends, perhaps it’s time for you to play hooky on old Saturn and give yourself a break over the holidays. With the Sun, Jupiter, and Mercury all behind the scenes you know you want to have a few drinks, wear a lampshade on your head at a party, and generally carouse, just make sure you have a designated driver or an escort you trust. Mars and Neptune in your House of communication and short trips could have you overlooking the fact that you’re out of practice for the debauchery decathlon, so make it a point to go slow and sip whatever your beverage may be. From what I’ve heard Santa has never hazed anybody, so don’t let anyone pressure you in his name.

 

Aquarius- Whatever ideas you’ve been creating to be able to cope with your circumstances, from now on life will likely be serving you reality straight with no chaser. Especially since Mars and Neptune in your House of Self Worth will be squaring the Sun in your House of Dreams and making it more difficult for you to believe that things will be okay if they continue as they are. Saturn behind the scenes aligning with Venus in your House of Career will no doubt help you to face your miscalculations and take responsibility, but what inquiring minds want to know is if you’ll be able to acknowledge the writing on the wall without a catastrophe occurring first? Uranus retrograde in your House of Thinking and Communication would suggest that you assume nothing at this point if you’re currently behind the eight ball.

 

Pisces- If you’ve been burning the candle at both ends take the time to relax and heal. With Mars and Neptune in your sign you could be feeling both tired and guilty about it, especially with the Sun, Jupiter, and Mercury all going through your House of Public Image making you think you have to be a Man (or Woman) for All Seasons. Without necessarily saying “bah humbug” you could manage to have a low key approach to the season and still have a lot of fun. Listen to Venus as she transits your House of Philosophy and aligns with solid Saturn; ”Moderation my child, moderation.”

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 #55 Weekly Horoscopes for 10/1-10/7, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/1-10/7, 2018

 

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

What a shit show this past week has been, huh? I would refer you back to my Aquarius comments from last week as well as to my Aquarius comments for this week…Maybe Bart O’Kavanaugh should be reading Mr. Saturn’s Stars? At any rate, there’s finally going to be an FBI investigation into the allegations of sexual misconduct against the SCOTUS nominee, let’s just hope all 3 complaints are fully vetted and it’s not just a cherry pick chosen by the Republican majority. Oh, and a warning to the FBI Agents that may have to talk to Kavanaugh, he’s a screamer…. and make sure you bring some tissues.

 

Aries- This may be a time when you’re willing to step out from behind the mask you usually wear in public and reveal who you truly are. Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Transformation and squaring Mars in your House of Groups will likely have you chaffing against any status quo expectations being presented to you, while Mercury in your House of Relationships squaring Pluto in your house of Public Image will inspire you to speak the truth and/or find out the real deal in whatever situations you may find yourself involved in. You are by nature an individualistic sign, so if you’ve caught yourself as of late compromising more than you should, now is the time when you may just decide to throw caution to the wind and demand, as The Pointer Sister’s sang,  “It’s Got to be Real.”

 

Taurus- Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Relationships will have you re-examining your connections to various people in your life, especially with Mars in your House of Public Image squaring the Goddess of Love and putting pressure on you to be “A Man (or Woman) for All Seasons.” Pluto in your House of Philosophy squaring Mercury should see some important info coming to light about some things that may have been said about you behind the scenes that will end up being quite hurtful. It’s important to realize that the individuals who made these statements are clearly not your friends. With Jupiter also passing through your House of Relationships you’ll likely take the high road regarding this matter, which is fine, just make sure you remember the old saying, “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.”

 

Gemini- There may be pressures on you now to deliver at work and it’s important that you find the proper motivation in order to adequately rise to the challenge. Mars in your House of Philosophy may find you feeling a need to rebel against what you consider to be unfair demands by a superior, although with Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Relationships and aligning with Saturn in your House of Legacies, it may just be that you’ll have to suck it up and do what’s gotta be done. Pluto is also in your House of Legacies and as it aligns with Jupiter in your House of Work those two planets together are about wealth, which could mean what you suffer through today you will benefit from tomorrow. “Go the distance.”

 

Cancer- We never know what we’re capable of until we’re challenged and this may just be one of those weeks for you. Pluto in your House of Relationships is being squared by Mercury in your House of Foundations, which means that facts may come to light now involving someone you were convinced was one way (perhaps a family member) but is actually another…..surprise!!! What’s important is not that they’re a shit, but that Venus going retrograde in your House of Creativity and squaring Mars in your House of Transformation will see you leaping like a ninja out ahead of the curve and doing all the damage control necessary to reduce your losses (and disappointment) to a minimum. Jupiter is also in your House of Creativity, and as he aligns with Pluto you may find that when the dust clears even if you’ve lost respect for one person in your life, you may have gained an unexpected new ally in the process.

 

Leo- You are the sign of leadership, however, sometimes followers can own a leader if the person in charge needs the ego gratification that supplication can provide. Mars in your House of Relationships now represents the demands that your various relationships are putting on you, while Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Foundations is you remembering what you need and how you’re not getting it. What to do? Mercury in your House of Communication squaring Pluto would suggest you start setting some boundaries, although the needy folks around you might not appreciate it, but after all, they’re the problem, aren’t they? Uranus in your House of Public Image aligning with Saturn is all about you doing you, so for the time being if doing you means going solo, then so be it!  “I am Legend.”

 

Virgo- Pressures on the job could actually become a motivation for you to rethink how you gave up a dream not too long ago because you were discouraged. Venus in your House of Communication squaring Mars in your House of Work will undoubtedly help you to realize how much energy you’re being forced to spend now doing something you don’t like, while Mercury in your House of Self Worth squaring Pluto in your House of Creativity will have you feeling all the subconscious creativity you’re holding back, simply because it’s making you ill. Saturn is also in your House of Creativity, and as it aligns with Uranus in your House of Philosophy, this is the time for you to bust out and resume chasing down that original dream…”Ba ba ba, ba bop bop, I feel free”

 

Libra- Mercury in your sign is making you want to share with the world the insights you have struggled to acquire, however, Pluto in your House of Foundations is asking you to be patient because you really have no idea yet how much these ideas are going to affect the world’s view of you as well. Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Self Worth is squaring Mars in your House of Creativity, meaning that something right now which seems obvious to you may actually be quite a revolutionary (and mysterious) viewpoint for someone else. Let Jupiter in your House of Earnings aligning with Pluto give you the confidence to be patient that your time is coming. In the meantime, pay close attention as structured and organized Saturn aligns with Uranus retrograde in your House of Transformation to pave the way for the new life you will soon embark upon.

 

Scorpio- As Mercury behind the scenes squares Pluto in your House of Thinking and Communication, be prepared for a perspective you have on a certain situation to change quite suddenly. In addition, be prepared for the situation itself to change as well, especially since Venus is going retrograde in your sign and moving back into a square with Mars in your House of Home and Foundations. Which came first, the writing on the wall, or you thinking how you could use a change? It doesn’t really matter because you should feel confident that your spidey-sense was right on the money and everything seems to be going in your favor regardless. Saturn in your House of siblings aligning with Uranus retrograde in your House of Relationships could find you revisiting a weird misunderstanding from the past with a family member. Don’t expect a different resolution this time around because even if you have changed, they haven’t.

 

Sagittarius- As Venus begins her backward motion in your House of Hidden Things, expect memories of either unrequited love or the one that got away to haunt you now. Mars will be squaring Venus from your House of Communication, so if you feel a strong urge to look up someone from your past, don’t. You’re no longer the same person you were and going down memory lane could end up with you regressing in a very unhealthy way. Pluto in your House of Self Worth squaring Mercury in your House of Dreams represents the need for you to face the truth and acknowledge the hard lesson about love you received from this person, thereby determining whether or not you learned anything. Of course there’s a very good possibility you’ve been hiding in a world of illusion since then, and if that’s the case then this is the time to realize it, once and for all.

 

Capricorn- With Saturn and Pluto in your sign, the revolution is no doubt raging, both within you and in the surrounding world. Pluto is squaring Mercury in your House of Public Image, so if you find that you’re still a little lax about setting up boundaries, then perhaps someone may come crashing through this week to remind you of the work yet to be done. On the other hand, Saturn aligning nicely with Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity will help you to be like Felix the Cat with his magick bag of tricks so that you can get right to fixing any damage that may occur. Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Dreams may mean it’s time to curb either your expenses or leisure time, especially if you have found that you are currently distracted from what you’ve hoped to accomplish. If you can be honest with yourself, then Jupiter aligning with Pluto should give you the confidence to get right back on track.

 

Aquarius- Mars in your sign squaring Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Career may require you to revisit something that might have gotten lost in your recent surge forward toward new foes and new battles. Pluto behind the scenes has been digging around and Mercury in your House of Philosophy has been showing you some really crazy secrets that could send the whole shithouse up in smoke if you were that type; well, are you? Noble Jupiter is also in your House of Career and as he aligns with Pluto back there in the shadows hopefully he will advise you to be prudent (and hopefully you’ll listen). A time of reckoning is coming for the bad guys, so just call the sheriff and don’t try to make a citizen’s arrest. Saturn behind the scenes aligning with Uranus at your Foundation would suggest you just do your part and try to remain humble; as the saying goes, “good things come to those that wait.” Surprise!!!

 

Pisces- If you haven’t been satisfied as of late, and I don’t mean with the material quality of your life but rather with the content of your character, then Mars in your Subconscious area squaring Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Philosophy might make this a good time to do some serious inner work with a qualified professional. Mercury in your House of Transformation squaring Pluto would reinforce this point as those two together are about finding what’s hidden. Neptune is your sign’s ruler and having it at home now could end up being either a gift or a curse, just like a parent can alternately be a source of frustration as well as love. Either way you need to find out who you truly are, and if that’s your motivation at this point in time, then having your ruling planet in your sign will probably be a source of enlightenment rather than illusion. Namaste.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #54 Weekly Horoscopes for 9/24-9/30, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 9/24- 9/30, 2018

 

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

On Monday there will be a Full Harvest Moon ushering in the week as Ms. Christine Blasey Ford is set to testify on Thursday before the all male Senate Judiciary Committe regarding her allegations of Sexual Misconduct against Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

It was 27 years ago (approximately the duration of a Saturn Return) when Anita Hill testified against Clarence Thomas and made an obscure porn star named “Long Dong Silver” into a household name of sorts. Back then Anita was by herself and the boys club won out, now though Ms. Ford has the #metoo movement behind her…..and, for what it’s worth, Mr. Saturn as well……Let justice be done.

 

Aries- With a Full Harvest Moon in your sign to start the week, plus Mars in your House of Groups and the Sun in your House of Partnerships, it’s time to move forward with any collaborative projects that may have been languishing during this past summer of retrograde planets. Saturn in your House of Career may still throw a few obstacles in your way, however, if these matters are taken care of in a timely fashion, you may be surprised to discover that you’ve made lemonade out of lemons and it’s quite tasty. Both Venus and Jupiter are in your House of Transformation now, so try to look at any changes that come along as opportunities rather than inconveniences and you should end up “aw-ight,” like a one-eyed cat sitting in a seafood store.

 

Taurus- The Full Moon this week will occur behind the scenes in your chart and should serve as a motivator to help you focus on what needs to be done. Mars in your House of Career aligning with the Sun and Mercury in your House of Work will make you more ambitious than usual, so make sure your energy is channeled into activities that will provide long term benefits as well as immediate enjoyment. Jupiter and Venus in your House of Relationships will give you an intuitive edge in your dealings with others, so follow the tingles of your spidey sense to wherever they may lead; especially if it involves foreign travel or any exotic strangers.

 

Gemini- You could be torn this week between the needs of your career and the desires of a loved one; what to do? The Sun and Mercury in your House of Romance will be pushing for  play time, while the Full Moon in your House of Groups will have you facing responsibilities either on the job or involving a project that means a lot to you. Mars in your House of Philosophy will have you believing that you can be all things to all people, just be careful you don’t end up burning out like “Jumpin’ Jack Flash” after trying to burn the candle at both ends. Venus and Jupiter in your House of Health might be an indication that you could benefit from some form of inner healing like reiki, homeopathy, or even psychoanalysis, that is, if you’re willing to sit still long enough.

 

Cancer- The Full Moon this week will be in your House of Career and as it aligns with Mars in your House of Transformation and the Sun illuminating the depths of your chart, be prepared to push or be pushed forward in the job arena. Jupiter in your House of Creativity aligning with Pluto in your House of Partnerships likely means someone in a position of power has high expectations for you, despite any misgivings you may have about them (or yourself). Saturn aligning with the Moon conjunct Uranus later in the week may end up being your Neo moment from the Matrix, you know, when he pulls down the helicopter? Can’t you just hear Morpheus commenting to Trinity, “I think he’s starting to believe.”

 

Leo- Refraining from choosing is still making a choice, so get ready for shit to happen this week whether you like it or not. The Full Moon will be in your House of Philosophy and as it aligns with Mars in your House of Partnerships and the Sun in your House of Communication, be prepared to take charge before you’re forced to play catch up with someone who’s trying to take away what’s yours. Take a stand if you have to, but also be willing to cooperate if it’s in your best interest, after all, half of something is better than all of nothing. Consider trying to smooth out the lines of communication with a loved one, especially since Venus and Jupiter are in your House of Home; a simple apology if you’ve been wrong will set things right.

 

Virgo- You’ve been caught up in day-to-day challenges for so long now that it’s only just starting to dawn on you that your life has suddenly turned into something unrecognizable. Who are you? What are you doing, and why? The Full Moon in your House of Transformation opposing the Sun and Mercury in your House of Self Worth has you asking these questions because you are beginning to realize without others needing something you don’t know what you want. Jupiter and Venus in your House of Communication aligning with Pluto in your House of Creativity represents your burning artistic desire that’s all dressed up with no place to go….so what are you waiting for? Neptune in your House of Relationships is saying, “Don’t ask for permission, ask for forgiveness”…..are you listening?

 

Libra- With the Full Moon in your House of Partnerships aligning with Mars in your House of Creativity, a project that’s been very near and dear to you may be on the verge of finding a home. Venus and Jupiter in your House of Earnings aligning with Pluto and Saturn in your House of Foundations could see someone willing to make an investment in something you’ve done that could open the door for you to a new kind of life. Uranus retrograde in your House of Transformation will make the whole scenario seem like some sort of mystical coincidence, but don’t believe for one second that you’re struggles over the last few years haven’t had anything to do with what’s happening. Like in “Field of Dreams” when Kevin Costner thinks the whole thing was for Shoeless Joe, but then the ghost of Joe say’s, “No, it was you.”

 

Scorpio- Your head may be filled now with ideas of richer pastures, but be careful, have you ever heard the expression, the grass always seems greener on the other side of the fence? The Full Moon in your House of Routines and Mars squaring Uranus may have you feeling stuck and wanting to change just for change’s sake, but with the Sun illuminating your House of Confinement and Mercury recording it all, maybe you should take a moment to consider that perhaps what you’re really trying to do is run away from yourself? Venus and Jupiter in your sign aligning with Neptune and Pluto will allow you to manifest just about anything you need, but perhaps all you really should be concerned with is a clean, well lit inner temple?

 

Sagittarius- Mars squaring Uranus brings confrontations, accidents, and mishaps of all kinds, yet sometimes these unfortunate occurrences are designed to slow our asses down because we’re breezing through life too quickly and heading straight to hell without really thinking about it too much. When one is forced to stop, one is also forced to think, and that, my Centaur friend, can be the most excruciating thing of all for someone who has just been going through the motions. The Full Moon in your House of Creativity aligning with Mars in your House of Communication, along with Uranus retrograde in your House of Work aligning with Saturn in your House of Self Worth, are all trying to flag you down and get you looking in another direction, specifically within yourself, where Jupiter and Venus are waiting with all you need to make Magick happen; namely confidence and self love.

 

Capricorn- If you don’t like where you are or what’s going on in your life, then change something (hint…maybe try starting with yourself?). The Full Moon in your House of Home aligning with Mars in your House of Self Worth would suggest it’s time to let your thoughts be known if a relationship or living situation is starting to unravel. Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity squaring the aforementioned Mars might be making you feel like you should just leave the situation, but didn’t you do that a while ago to get where you currently are and now the same shit’s happening again? Yes? Then don’t run away, instead fearlessly go within and ask yourself what you want; and if that doesn’t work then honestly ask yourself who you are (better question). Jupiter and Venus in your House of Dreams are only waiting on your marching orders.

 

Aquarius- With Mars in your sign and the Aries Full Harvest Moon in your House of Communications, you will no doubt be willing to express your opinions to whoever is willing to listen (and even to those who are not willing to listen). Uranus retrograde at your Foundation will be squaring the aforementioned Mars, so be careful at just how much you spout off, for with Saturn behind the scenes squaring the Sun you may inadvertently end up projecting hang-ups onto innocent bystanders rather than viable opinions. Venus and Jupiter in Scorpio and your House of Public Image would suggest you err on the side of silence when you’re out and about, especially since Neptune in your House of Self Worth could cause you to misspeak and we’ve all had just about enough of alternate facts for the foreseeable future; thank you!

 

Pisces- The Full Harvest Moon in Aries may have you starting off this week feeling a little edgy, especially with Mars behind the scenes squaring Uranus in your House of Communications. Try to think before you speak or you may end up having to defend yourself after you speak. Listen to the advice of Venus in your House of Philosophy and Saturn in your House of Dreams as they ask you to try to be patient and realize Rome wasn’t built in a day. The Sun and Mercury in the sign of Libra and your House of Transformation could provide the necessary diplomatic skills to get through this touchy time, that is, if you can let go of defining yourself by what you don’t have and instead start appreciating yourself for everything you are.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #52 Weekly Horoscopes for 9/10-9/16, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 9/10-9/16, 2018

 

 “Human kind cannot bear very much reality.”

-T.S. Eliot

 

Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. Believe it or not we’ve been doing this for a year already…..Has it really been that long? Time flies, huh? I ‘ve tried to keep it as real as I can, but who knows what’s real, right?… At any rate, let’s just keep plugging along and no doubt reality will find us, it always does……..

 

Aries- As the Sun and Mercury pass through your House of Routines you will feel a need for things to be organized, yet with Uranus retrograde in your House of Self Worth and Venus in your House of Transformation both squaring Mars entering Aquarius and your House of Groups, what you feel is necessary in a professional or social situation may be so at odds with what the circumstances will allow that chaos may be the rule of the universe right now rather than order. Of course this will frustrate you, but it may also end up bringing out some hidden talents that may just make you realize you’re often at your best when your pissed off.

 

Taurus- If you have an idea that’s close to your heart that you would like to see become a manifest reality, you may just have to be willing to struggle with resistance from some individual or group who doesn’t particularly share your aesthetics.  This could get testy as Uranus in your sign opposes Venus in your House of Partnerships and squares Mars in your House of Public Image. Don’t let anyone tell you who or what you can be, especially with Mercury coming into opposition with Neptune; this person may have an axe to grind and there’s no reason you should agree to be their tool for it. Jupiter aligning with Pluto should aid in finding whatever support you may need in the face of any opposition, that is, if you’re willing to believe in yourself without reservation.

 

Gemini- Unexpected difficulties at work may require you to modify some long-standing attitudes you have about the rules of engagement when someone disagrees with you. Uranus behind the scenes squaring Mars may make you want to kick ass and take no prisoners, but Venus in Scorpio could have a better strategy; don’t play to a role someone else has typecast you in, after all that would mean they’re in control and we all know that isn’t something you can live with. Jupiter aligning with both Pluto and Neptune would suggest that the strategy of the black widow spider may be best for this situation; in other words, invite them to dinner, but don’t let them know they’re the entrée until they’ve drank enough of your wine. Cheers!

 

Cancer- You can’t be the star of your life if you let people indiscriminately re-write the script you imagine for yourself. Mars in your House of Transformation squaring both Venus in your House of Creativity and Uranus retrograde in your House of Dreams are trying to inspire you now to fight back against anyone who feels they can typecast you based on their selfishness, prejudices, or ignorance. Jupiter is also in that House of Creativity, and as he aligns with Neptune in your House of Philosophy and Pluto in your House of Relationships, be willing to think outside of the box, not the one others have tried to put you in, but rather the one you’ve inadvertantly constructed because of the way you have learned to think about yourself. “It’ your thing, do what you wanna do, no one can tell ya who to sock it to.”

 

Leo- If you’re feeling a need to rebel, take a moment to ask yourself why instead of assuming that because your feeling oppressed it’s someone else’s fault. Mars entering your House of Relationships and squaring both Uranus retrograde in your House of Public Image and Venus at your Foundation is a testy set of aspects that could be as much about how you feel about yourself as about how others may be treating you. Jupiter is also at your Foundation and as he aligns with Neptune in your House of Transformation you may be asked to realize a very simple premise….If someone calls you an idiot and you argue with them about it, you are……Get it?

 

Virgo- With the Sun and Mercury currently in your sign, you will no doubt be focused on trying to make everything just right for you and yours, however, don’t get too carried away. Finding too many things wrong might just be your mindset now rather than the actual state of affairs; and remember, nobody  likes a nit-picker. If you’re willing to let Jupiter aligning with Neptune show you how to go with the flow, then Pluto in your House of Creativity may finally see you learning about Zen and the Art of, well, anything you want to do. If you’re not willing to flow with things, then Uranus squaring Mars in your House of Routines will likely see you battling with just about everything right now, but mostly yourself. A word to the wise…

 

Libra- The Sun and Mercury behind the scenes aligning with Jupiter in your House of Self Worth will likely have you feeling very introspective now, and with Neptune also involved in this from your House of Work, you may end up being too hard on yourself as a result. Pluto and Saturn in your House of Foundations are speaking to a fundamental change going on in your life, just don’t assume you can know what that will be before it actually happens. Venus in your House of Self Worth squaring Mars in your House of Creativity represents the part of you that will rise to any occasion, and with Uranus contributing to this from your House of Transformation expect the unexpected…and that could be something great, so pick your head up and keep your eyes open!!!

 

Scorpio- Jupiter and Venus in your sign aligning with Neptune in your House of Romance and Pluto in your House of Communication likely means that you’ll probably be able to get away with saying just about anything to anybody now, so go ahead, ask for whatever it is you want from a boss, colleague, or lover. Mars in your House of Foundations and Uranus in your House of Relationships could see a situation either at home or work take a very weird turn (maybe because of what you just asked?) but don’t assume it’s bad. When we choose to expand our reality the ghosts of yesterday may just become the Angels of tomorrow, if you believe. In the meantime, try not to hold onto an old morality that’s trying to judge a change while it’s happening……. That’s God’s business (he, she, or it).

 

Sagittarius- If weird stuff has been happening on the job you can most assuredly blame it on Uranus retrograde, especially this week as it squares Mars in your House of Communication and makes everybody seem erratic and “stressed.” Jupiter and Venus behind the scenes aligning with Mercury and Pluto would suggest you probably have some clever commentary to offer on your co-workers neurosis, although unless you aspire to do stand-up you should heed your own observations and read the writing on the wall. No one is going to do well in this situation who isn’t already doing well, and if they’re the ones acting out the weird and obnoxious shit, then get out of there. Saturn in your House of Self Worth would suggest you polish up that resume, but in the meantime, as you’re trying to find something, why don’t you give stand-up a try, it may just improve your interview skills?

 

Capricorn- Jupiter and Venus together in your House of Dreams represent luck, and as they align with Pluto in your sign and Neptune in your House of Communications the question is, what are you waiting for, huh, the vision of something better to imagine you? Uranus in your House of Creativity aligning with Saturn and squaring Mars in your House of Self Worth would indicate frustration with your current circumstances, but rather than getting mad at yourself do something courageous instead. Be like Senator Corey Booker when he challenged the old white farts in the Senate to “bring it on.” The Sun in your House of Philosophy aligning with Pluto is a very powerful creative and regenerative influence. Take a risk on what you feel.

 

Aquarius- Mars in your sign squaring both Venus in your House of Career and Uranus retrograde in your Home and Foundations area is spurring you on to get your act together, just make sure that’s what you’re doing and not just trying to morph into what you think somebody else wants. Saturn and Pluto sparring behind the scenes represent an overhaul of how you feel about yourself, which is distinctly different than worrying about what others think of you and then judging yourself accordingly; make a note of it! Jupiter in your House of Career embodies your grandest ambitions, while Neptune in your House of Self Worth is about whether or not you believe yourself worthy of such high aspirations. Figure this out before you do anything; it’s key!!!

 

Pisces- The Sun and Mercury going through your House of Relationships and opposing Neptune in your sign could have you surprised by the depth of feeling you have for someone as a relationship changes from a discussion of how it’s not working to it actually ending. Mars squaring Uranus in your House of Communications has you frustrated at not being able to express your sense of loss, especially when not too long ago you felt quite able to express your dissatisfaction with what was going on. Although Neptune rules your sign, it’s energies are far beyond the limited confines of our understanding, particularly when the God of the Sea likes to teach his lessons to us by first leading us to believe one thing only then to discover we are actually lost at sea without any idea of where we really are. If you’re feeling adrift right now, all I can say is remember Christopher Columbus and just keep sailing.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #48 Weekly Horoscopes for 8/13-8/19, 2018

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

 

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

“All around, people looking half dead

Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

”Can you see the real me preacher?

Can you see the real me doctor?

Can you see the real me mother?

Can you see the real me?”

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #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…..
