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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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

Aries- With Mercury and Venus entering your sign this week it’s time to reveal some of those brilliant ideas that have been simmering in your noodle. Mars and Uranus will be urging you to move full speed ahead, while at the same time Jupiter will be asking you to meditate on the differences between control and power. By the time the weekend rolls around successive conjunctions of the Moon with Saturn and Pluto will let you know what the truth is; just make sure you’ve been thorough in your speculations.

Taurus- If you haven’t been honest with yourself in your relationships it will be pretty hard to keep up the front as Mercury and Venus take you in the backroom and give you an earful. Jupiter going retrograde in your House of Relationships will also be asking you to rethink your perpetual “nice” act as Mars and Uranus trot out the evidence of how you’re not getting the quid pro quo you’d like from a situation you’ve put a lot of time and effort into. Mr. Saturn would say, “time to get practical” and Pluto would concur.

Gemini- If you want to get your way in a situation start campaigning for support. Mercury and Venus entering the sign of Aries and your House of Groups will give you the gift of gab (as if you needed any help) while Uranus and Mars will make you the sharpest tool in the shed in any gathering, just don’t get too carried away. You may have some great ideas, but by the end of the week Saturn and Pluto will be requiring you to follow through on any promises made (that you do need some help with).

Cancer- If things haven’t been going your way be prepared to rethink a plan. Jupiter going retrograde in your House of Creativity will assist with this by bringing some new information to light that should prove to be very helpful. If things are changing it doesn’t mean to give up on your dreams, instead follow the way the wind seems to be blowing, it may just bring you to where you’ve hoped to be all along. Mercury and Venus entering your Public House promises a busy week of interacting with people and a Sun/Neptune conjunction should deliver an unexpected moment of enlightenment. Don’t forget to yell “AHA” when you finally see the truth.

Leo- As Mercury and Venus enter the sign of Aries and your House of Philosophy this week have the courage to confront how unhappy you are, you might finally be ready to stop playing the victim and instead listen to Mars and Uranus as they advise you to shake things up and change the rules of engagement. Jupiter going retrograde is certainly going to support this by forcing you to deal with a situation that you’ve been letting slide for far too long. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Daily Routines will also start pressuring you to manage your time and energy more efficiently. Read the writing on the wall.

Virgo- You’ve been going along with a situation for so long you seem to have forgotten who you were before it started. As Mercury and Venus move into the sign of Aries, take the time to re-assert your interests before no one else is interested in what those concerns might be. Mars and Uranus are going to shake things up at home so don’t try to pretend it’s not happening; avoidance won’t work. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity will provide you with some real conundrums; remember this is not to break you but to expand you. Nuff said!!!

Libra- You have been an observer in your life for a while now and maybe the time has come to ask yourself what you have learned. Could you act more and talk less? Then do it! With Mercury, Venus, and Uranus all in your House of Relationships communication with a partner at this time is key. That means listen more and talk less. There is a subtext in your interactions with loved ones that you’re missing. You’ve been worrying that you’re not enough when all a partner really wants is to feel accepted by you even when they make mistakes. Try to just listen and don’t think you have to fix everything.

Scorpio- With Mercury and Venus entering your House of Work and Uranus already there, things could get stupid busy on the job front. Combine this with the fact that Mars is in your House of Earnings and it becomes imperative to make sure you’re getting adequately compensated for your time and effort. Don’t let a boss get away with being nice if they’re being cheap! Saturn and Pluto in your House of Communications could mean the time has come to make some necessary demands in whatever facet of your life you’re feeling short changed; (i.e.) Refer back to my comment on nice but cheap bosses.

Sagittarius- With Jupiter as your ruling planet you are a philosophical sign, which at times can mean you’re unrealistic but this isn’t one of those times. Now you might actually be brilliant! With Mars in your sign and Uranus in your House of Creativity you couldn’t conform to the status quo now even if you wanted to, so let your freak flag fly and you might be surprised when everyone makes an allowance for the eccentric artist. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth are not trying to make you worry about your bills, rather they are trying to get you to bust out and create a new paradigm for yourself. Are you listening?

Capricorn- We can repress things for just so long and then they find a way to escape, often to our chagrin and/or embarrassment. Mercury and Venus are in your House of Symbolic foundations and Uranus has been there for a while, meaning that your darker impulses may manifest now if you have been repressing them. This situation will be further reinforced by Mars behind the scenes and Jupiter in your House of Dreams, therefore the time has come to be totally honest with yourself. Saturn and Pluto in your sign are a revolution waiting to happen so the question now is, which side are you on…the rebels or the status quo?

Aquarius- An epiphany awaits you, are you ready for it? You have spent so long being what others need you to be that you’ve let them define who and what you are. Of course being Mr. or Ms. Individualistic you’re incredulous at this suggestion, but really, are you the leader or the star because others need you to be, or because you feel like less if you’re not the center of attention? This is a heavy question and Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes in your dressing room could turn this into the sort of personal melodrama that Betty Davis shared with those close to her in “All About Eve.” In the words of the great Diva, “Fasten your seatbelts it’s going to be a bumpy night.”

Pisces- Get out there and network!!! With Mercury and Venus in your House of Earnings along with Uranus aligning with Mars in your House of Career, you could find that if you stir the pot now you may encounter an opportunity that you didn’t expect. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Groups have been pushing you toward some more responsible acquaintances so maybe you should let it happen? With the Sun and Neptune coming together now in your sign a major new trend could be revealing itself, let go of old illusions if they’re not playing out and let the Universe be your guide.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #24 Weekly Horoscopes for 2/19-2/25, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 2/19- 2/25, 2018


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


Aries- With a whole cluster of planets gathered together behind the scenes for you in the mutable and highly sensitive sign of Pisces, you are experiencing a rare moment of indecision in your usual full steam ahead mind set. This is because Mars in your House of Philosophy has you feeling restless and wanting to bust out of your daily routine, while Saturn and Pluto in your House of Career are both reminding you to keep your nose to the grindstone. I think your lesson at this time is not based on either/or but rather learning how to be patient and accepting that what’s in front of you now is both what needs to be done and the way it’s supposed to be.

Taurus- The conflict that exists for you now is between what is expected of you by others versus what you’d really like to do. This could get tricky because some of the things that others expect of you are actually in your best interests, yet it seems as if you are always doing something for somebody else and right now you’re feeling a real urge to bust out and do you. Let Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy guide you in regards to what is really in your best interests and try to re-evaluate where your fear of being taken advantage of really comes from. Perhaps your approval issues are to blame rather than anyone trying to dominate you?

Gemini- As a mutable Air Sign you are a creature of constantly evolving ideas, meaning that you are always changing your mind and weighing the validity of one concept against another. What will make this week different though is that this won’t be a time of shifting ideas, but rather one of changing emotions. Your partner will likely end up bearing the brunt of this transformation, though it’s important for you to keep in mind that your expectations and judgments of this person might not be the real problem. Perhaps the situation is really a case of you projecting your insecurities onto them, meaning the time has come to realize that if you’re expecting them to make you feel safe, then it’s really about your lack of confidence rather than their lack of success.

Cancer- Your process is to obsess on any problem that may be facing you until it rises to monumental proportions in your mind and totally stresses you out. At that point all that bottled up energy will then explode into a burst of creative energy that will take care of whatever it may have been. Sound exhausting? It is. If you consider yourself a Spiritual person then this week could be the time you finally see this fight or flight pattern you create for yourself for precisely what it is, meaning that the real adversary here is not life in general but you. A partner could help you with this realization if for once you’d just listen to them and trust that when they suggest you calm down they are not criticizing you.

Leo- Believe it or not this could be a time of genuine mystical revelation if you could just embrace the profundity of your sign’s fixed nature instead of allowing its rigidity to limit what you think is possible. No one would ever call a Lion a cowardly animal, so what is your problem with doing something different in a particular situation if it has been making you unhappy for a long time? Try to realize that constantly complaining about your circumstances and then not taking action is a subtle and insidious path to disempower by indirectly convincing yourself the problem is insurmountable. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

“Unwillingness to

Try will always prove something

Is impossible”

Virgo- This is a time of very serious challenges for you, however, by the same token it can also be a time of great advances in your personal development. Motivation to face certain aspects of yourself that need to change could come from a partner who is refusing to face similar work they need to do for themselves. This type of symbiosis is what truly defines a soul mate, so instead of blaming this person for their faults and using that as an excuse, instead try to embrace your shortcomings and see how the other person reacts. Either you will transcend your limitations together or a long-standing karmic chain could be broken setting you both free to change your destiny as individuals. I know this sounds all New Agey, but the power of love is based on this exact kind of synthesis or division, which in Ancient times was referred to as “Alchemy.”

Libra- The Mind-Body Connection is going to come up big time for you this week with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Neptune all in your House of Health squaring Mars in your House of Thinking. Pay attention to your stress levels and try not to sweat the small stuff. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Symbolic Foundations are likely going to make it feel like the Earth is shifting under your feet and the tendency will be to resist, creating a great deal of pressure that could be very exhausting. It is important at this time to realize that the world is not against you, rather the time has come for you to see what you’re made of in order to embrace and utilize your true potential. Understand that great challenges await those who are destined to succeed. In the words of Maximus from “Gladiator”, “What we do now echoes in eternity!”

Scorpio- With Mars in your House of Self Worth squaring a whole bunch of planets in your House of Creativity you are driven at this time toward finding deep fulfillment. If it’s in the emotional realm you could be feeling very hot to trot and find yourself seriously driven to fall in love (or at least into lust). If it’s in the material realm then it will be all about money for you and establishing some real security for the future. As a result, Saturn and Pluto in your House of Communication and Thinking will make this a time of some radical theoretical shifts in how you think about life and what you need from it, while Jupiter in your sign will motivate you to master your environment or perhaps even another person as the case may be. Either way, this is a time when you will be embracing Yin/Yang, Jekyll and Hyde, and even Life and Death within yourself and the surrounding world in order to be all you can be.

Sagittarius- This is it! With Mars in your sign squaring the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Neptune all in Pisces and your House of Symbolic foundations and Family, the time has come for you to confront just how much you are controlled by either your family or some other group dynamic that you’re convinced determines who you are. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth in turn represent the struggle of your destiny trying to form as you first reject what you are not in order to discover what you are. Jupiter behind the scenes in the transformational sign of Scorpio would then represent the irresistible forces of karma driving you to this ultimate confrontation with what you see in the mirror. Of course the mythical and archetypal aspects of this inner struggle probably have you feeling utterly confused, which should then set the stage for unpredictable Uranus in your House of Creativity to motivate you to do something totally liberating! Go for it!!!

Capricorn- With Jupiter in your House of Groups and Dreams aligning with Pluto and Saturn in your House of Self, you will likely appear to others to be totally clear on where it is you’re going. On the other hand, with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Thinking squaring Mars behind the scenes, you are actually quite confused and longing for a sense of peace and stability. In addition, you could be experiencing certain psychic insights that are no doubt compelling but also seem to have no realistic context. Not a good place for a formidable Earth sign like yourself to be, but not a bad place either as your evolutionary clock is ticking and you are desperately in need of some new ideas about the nature of so-called “Reality.” When the student is ready the teacher appears, which in this case is crazy ol’ Uranus in your House of Symbolic Foundations cryptically repeating, “The Tao that can be explained is not the real Tao. Inscrutable? Yes. Hopeless? No. Keep the faith, baby.

Aquarius- Your dream is to be loved in a simple and profound way without the pettiness of human foibles to taint the picture. Really? Grow up! It is precisely the imperfections of our humanity that define the very nature of love, for without our peccadillos and high crimes virtues such as compassion, understanding, and ultimately forgiveness all become impossible because we would have no reason to do any of those things. Enlightenment is not an intellectual exercise and with a cluster of Piscean planets in your House of Self Worth you might actually for once be in a place to truly understand this, like getting caught in the rain without an umbrella in order to finally realize you won’t melt if you get wet.

Pisces- As a sign ruled by Neptune you certainly have the propensity to gain a very profound level of enlightenment, likewise you also have the potential to get entirely immersed in your illusions as if you were lost in a hall of mirrors at a carnival. You are like a sponge now as you deeply experience some very profound insights, although if anyone asked you would probably say that you’re not quite sure what the truth is about anything. Perfect answer! This is a time to look, listen, and learn, not to act; at least not yet. The time for action will reveal itself to you like an approaching swell reveals itself to a surfer. To start paddling too soon would likely end in a wipe-out, but to wait for the proper moment could result in a ride that could seem like an endless summer. This is your time now, to trust that is to trust yourself.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #23 Weekly Horoscopes for 2/12-2/18, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 2/12 – 2/18, 2018


 Hi kids!!! Valentine’s Day is this week so Mr. Saturn is going to talk exclusively on the subject everyone always wants to know about, namely, Love… <3… although be forewarned, what follows is gonna be REAL…


The Gardener

Love from the past

Is a dry, dead rose

Pressed and flat

In a book of poems


Hopeful Love

Is a pretty bouquet

To a maiden from her suitor

In a romantic play


But the Love before us

Is there in the dirt

To be tilled by the gardener

Who believes in the work“


Aries- If you’re in a committed relationship explain to your partner what you’re really feeling instead of just doing what you want and then expecting to win the argument afterwards, even if revealing your doubts makes you a little uncomfortable (especially if it makes you uncomfortable). If you’re single decide what the scariest thing about a relationship is for you, because if you think you’re ready for one it’s going to be that deep down, hidden fear you’re harboring that will be the gate keeper.

Taurus- If you have a partner make sure that they are valuing you as much as you are enamored of them. In addition, be careful of a stale relationship turning into a power play when all you really need to do is spice it up a bit. If you’re single, take a moment to write down all your good qualities and then realize that any potential partner who doesn’t recognize you have these attributes certainly isn’t worth your time.

Gemini- Pay attention to how you and a partner are communicating. Make sure that the agreeableness of your significant other isn’t just a way of disengaging and letting you believe what you want to. You single twins will have that special something going on right now, just pay attention not to let a charming someone sneak off with the family jewels.

Cancer- If partners agree on everything then one of them is redundant. Relax some of your control issues and let the differences between you and your significant other fuel a loving evolution of your relationship; you’ll be glad you did!!! Likewise, you single crabs need to step out of your comfort zones and be willing to let a relationship develop. Don’t make excuses that you’re too busy; you know there’s no way work is more important that falling in love.

Leo- You could be feeling more amorous than you have in a while so let your partner know it. Don’t let yourself be inhibited by their shyness; they might need your leadership skills on this one. You single Lions could be just as happy making love to either an audience or an admirer, decide which one floats your boat and then be clear about it so no one gets hurt.

Virgo- If the relationship with your significant other has been complicated lately, then why don’t you hide out together in the bedroom for a day or so? After all, relationships rarely get to that “complicated” place if a committed couple is having a lot of sex…just sayin’. Meanwhile, you single Virgins should stop looking at love as something to be attained with definite rules to get there. Ever hear the song “Fooled Around and Fell in Love?”

Libra- No matter if you’re attached or single, how you feel about yourself right now is making all the difference. Creativity and Love are strongly related for you at this time, so if you’re feeling that your worldly endeavors are unsatisfying you could appear either mysteriously conflicted to a partner, or distant and unavailable to any potential suitors. Either way, for the present you should value an emotional connection over any material accomplishment, you’ll be much better off in the long run.

Scorpio- If you’re in a relationship then make sure you do something really special this week for Valentine’s and don’t cut any corners, your partner will love it! If you’re single then love right now could be about either something tangible or something spiritual. For instance, you could find out that someone whom you secretly admire is also quite smitten with you, or else you might feel inspired to create something artistic that will help you work out a mystery within yourself. Either way, Cupid’s arrow will hit something.

Sagittarius- If you’re in a relationship think carefully before bringing up the subject of living together. What you feel for a special person could turn into some unexpected animosity when they’re suddenly with you all the time and start to cramp your style regarding some personal habits you have no intention of changing. If you’re single stop having a fantasy you’ll meet someone if you really don’t make any effort to connect with new people (hiding in a group of friends for safety whenever you’re out doesn’t count).

Capricorn- If you’re in a relationship where is it going? Or, more importantly, where do you want it to go? Things may currently seem too chaotic to risk taking that next step with a serious partner, yet one of the tests of Love is if it can survive such challenges. You single Goats may not realize how all this catharsis you’ve been experiencing recently is actually making you quite a hottie. There’s more than one person out there who would be willing to make it all about you. Of course that’s a compliment, but be careful just the same.

Aquarius- Have you been paying enough attention to your partner lately? On the other hand, if you’ve been doting on them is that about their need or your insecurity? Try to see the person in your life now as a specific individual and not an abstract extension of yourself. You single Water Bearers may be promoting this conquering hero image, yet a person who could love you would like to be privy to the worried child you sleep alone with at night. Are you willing to be truly vulnerable without a disclaimer?

Pisces- You attached Fishes need to be careful not to put a partner on a pedestal. With illusory Neptune in your sign what you’re not seeing is that you may be dissing yourself rather than complimenting someone else. Single Fish will soon be in season, so be careful not too swim in shallow waters or automatically go after anything shiny that’s dangled in front of you. It’s entirely possible you could end up as a fillet for some predator who is only out for sport.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #22 Weekly Horoscopes for 2/5-2/11, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes  for 2/5 – 2/11, 2018


 Hi kids! Glad to see you back at Mr. Saturn’s Stars.


“I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope

For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without


For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet


But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.”

-T.S. Eliot


Aries- The Lunar Arc for this week could bring you some very valuable lessons about relationships that you’re convinced you’ve already learned. You hard charging Rams don’t like to reflect too much or linger any longer than you have to, which means you probably won’t get it this time around either.  The Moon  squaring Pluto in your House of Relationships will likely make you unable to accept a certain situation so that you’ll probably end up feeling unfulfilled and restricted by it. A conjunction with Jupiter in your House of Transformation will then make you feel a need to resist being controlled at all costs. The Moon conjunct Mars in your House of Philosophy will next allow you to justify running away or rebelling, but then successive conjunctions of the Moon with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Public Image and Career will leave you feel lonely and misunderstood. At this point you’ll  probably convince yourself that it’s an either/or situation between a relationship and a career so that  distracting yourself through work will seem like the only justifiable solution for you to be you. While all this is going on The Sun, Venus, and Mercury will all be in your House of Groups and aligning nicely with Uranus in your sign, meaning that as you sabotage a close relationship with your insecurity, your public image will appear to be that of a charismatic and free spirit; talk about parallel universes! Mr. Saturn’s shaking his head; he’s got nothing on this one.

Taurus- This is a time when you need to consciously take control of the circumstances in your life. The Sun, Mercury, and Venus are all in your House of Career and Public Image and they all more or less square Jupiter in your House of Partnerships. This means don’t be aftraid to ask people for what you want. Don’t wait to be given a gift if it’s something you deserve. If someone close to you is starting to seem a little manipulative they probably are. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy will make you go back and forth on this (as well as with a number of other things that are going on) but with Pluto coming into alignment with Jupiter don’t feel guilty about putting your needs first. Uranus behind the scenes has been providing a certain amount of anxiousness within you for awhile, but now that all those Aquarius planets are lining up with the planet of freedom to confirm that you’re not crazy, make sure you trust your intuition and do what your heart tells you regarding who to trust and who not to trust. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is yours;

“Destiny is the

Inheritance we get from

Fate after a choice”

Gemini- You are a mutable Air Sign meaning that your mind will literally go whichever way the wind blows. This is particularly true at this time as The Sun, Mercury, and Venus all align harshly with Jupiter in one direction and beneficially with Uranus in the other. This could make you want something (or someone) just because circumstances won’t allow it, or it could make you give up on something (or someone) just because that’s the easiest thing to do right now. As Mars moves into a square with Neptune make sure you’re seeing the situation for what it really is; meaning be aware that what’s going on may actually originate from how you feel about yourself and not some outer reality dictating your existence. Be especially careful over the weekend if a charming stranger seems like they have all the answers to your topsy-turvy life, they don’t, but you may unwittingly have something they could beg, borrow, or steal to satiate their appetite for ego gratification. The Lunar Arc for you this week begins in the House of Creativity and ends in the House of Death and Transformation, meaning responsibility will follow action for you this week as immediately as burps follow beer, so don’t chug that mug just because you feel challenged to prove yourself.

Cancer- With a cluster of planets moving through your House of Legacies and Transformation and aligning with Uranus in your House of Public Image, you have been compelled so far this year to take care of everyone else’s needs but your own. With that same group of planets squaring Jupiter in your House of Creativity you also need to recognize that your life is a steaming locomotive rapidly running out of track, meaning that it’s high time you started taking care of what you need to do for yourself and calling in as many markers as possible to get help. Those who let you down will not be your friends in this next cycle of your life that is rapidly approaching. Pluto in your House of Relationships has been transforming how you deal with others for a while now and with the recent addition of Saturn into that same House you are being asked to swim with the tide instead of feeling that you are being drowned under a tidal wave of circumstances beyond your control. At the end of the week Venus will be entering your House of Philosophy to join Neptune in its home sign of Pisces, with both squaring Mars in your House of Daily Routines and Health. Please my sensitive little crustacean friend, learn to trust the changing tides, after all, you are a creature of the sea.

Leo- The needs and demands of a significant other may have finally reached the point of being untenable unless something is done, though not by you as they have already worn out that option. You Lions are always the last ones to realize it when you’re being taken advantage of, especially if the perpetrator is making you feel like you’re the most important person in their life. If this manipulation is happening on the home front then there isn’t any action on your part that’s needed, but rather non-action. Stop doing stuff that they should be doing, whether that means trying to counsel them about a situation they complain about constantly but won’t change, or cleaning up after them. In other words, stop being whatever they need you to be and start being what you need to be in your own life. Of course this will mean confronting your fears about being alone, but with Mars moving through rebellious Sagittarius on its way to an inevitable confrontation with Uranus not too long from now either you plan how this difficult situation is going to play out or else be surprised when your partner acts like an emotional kamikazi. Mr. Saturn understands this isn’t going to be pretty, but he is telling you what you need to hear and you know it. Remember the line from the song, “I can do bad all by myself.” Word!

Virgo- Saturn and Pluto in your House of Fun and Creativity is where your focus should be this week. Jupiter in Scorpio aligning with the aforementioned pair will likely have you wondering, could there be more fun in my life? At the same time a bunch of Aquarius planets moving through your House of Routines and aligning with Uranus will stimulate you to reflect on how you spend your time if, in fact, you’re not enjoying yourself? Venus will enter Pisces and your House of Partnerships at the end of the week, where it will eventually join with illusionary Neptune before squaring Mars in your House of Home and Symbolic Foundations. How much is a partner requiring of you on a day-to-day basis and to what extent do these expectations consider what your needs are? Hmmm. The Lunar Arc this week will begin in the sign of Libra, which naturally governs relationships and represents your House of Self Worth, where it will first square Saturn and then Pluto before finishing up at the end of the week toe to toe with those same revolutionary boys, Saturn and Pluto, in your House of Creativity. Mr. Saturn say’s, “Try to remember that the word “revolution” also includes the word “love” in it.

Libra- The French Poet Rimbaud (a Libran native) once wrote; “Now is the eve. Let us receive every influx of strength and true tenderness/And at dawn, armed with an ardent patience, we’ll enter into the splendid cities.” What you’re going through now is the stuff from which true poetry is made. The Sun, Mercury, and Venus in your House of Creativity are all angling harshly with Jupiter in your house of Self Worth, setting the stage for some of your long held ideals to clash with reality. Meanwhile, Uranus in your House of Relationships annoyingly keeps repeating that the only true freedom is in being yourself and fighting the good fight. So what is this ardent patience referred to by Mr. Rimbaud? That would be the presence of both Pluto and Saturn in your House of Symbolic Foundations at the very bottom of your chart, each of them working with Neptune as you sort out true visions from illusions and fleeting friendships from real love. The Lunar Arc for the week will descend from your ascendant to your IC, making it seem as if you are entering a dark night of the soul, although along the way the strength and true tenderness referred to in the Rimbaud quote will also be present in the form of Mars in Sagittarius and Venus entering Pisces. Mr. Saturn would encourage you to hang in there and, “May the odds ever be in your favor.”

Scorpio- As The Sun, Mercury, and Venus all sweep across the bottom of your chart and square Jupiter in your sign, you could be experiencing some unexpected delays either at work or on the home front. Not too worry. There is a metaphysical side to all of this that will be activated when Venus enters your House of Creativity, at which point she will sextile Uranus and then square Mars, motivating you to do what needs to be done as you come to the enlightening realization that the challenges life presents us are often the very blessings we need to truly change our realities and make Magick happen. The Lunar Arc this week will also be an illustration of this theme as the Moon begins its journey in your House of Confinement and then continues on through your Houses of Self Worth and Ideas, mirroring the process of birth as you emerge from a symbolic womb to be born into a world of limitless possibilities. As William Blake wrote in his Marriage of Heaven and Hell, “No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings.”

Sagittarius- The bottom of an Astrological Chart represents a person’s symbolic foundations. In your case, with Neptune lingering down there for so long you probably feel like a shipwreck survivor adrift in a vast ocean where nothing ever seems to change except for the sun going up and down. On the other hand, with Mars having recently entered your sign another part of you is beginning to feel inspired by a whole new level of energy starting to emerge, the likes of which you’ve probably not felt since back in the day when you were younger and life seemed to present more exciting possibilities. As Mars continues forward and comes into alignment with Mercury in your House of Communication you could likely encounter an unexpected opportunity, either at work or involving a special interest you have. Pluto and Saturn in your House of Self Worth are requiring you to step up and be more ambitious, meaning that any added responsibilities you are willing to accept in your career at this time will likely bring worthwhile dividends in the future. When Venus enters your Home area over the weekend expect that a loved one will need your special attention.

Capricorn- Mr. Saturn say’s, “Impatience is a doppelganger who doesn’t believe in you.” With Mars behind the scenes in your House of Confinement rapidly moving toward an exact square with Neptune in your House of Thinking, this could end up turning into a very anxious week for you as you find yourself worrying and wondering about everything. Add to this the fact that the Sun, Mercury, and Venus in your House of Self Worth are in a harsh angle with Jupiter in your House of Dreams and you’re also probably going to feel judged, yet the question is, by whom? The Lunar Arc beginning in your House of Public Image could have you overly concerned about what others may be thinking, so by the time it enters your sign to close the week you could be knee-deep in fixing things that may not really need to be fixed. Saturn and Pluto in your sign will be offering some sound advice on being careful about how much you worry about what you don’t have, simply because it usually means you’re also likely overlooking what you do have. This is where that doppelganger will be taunting you with ultimatums and judgments about how you should be doing so much better instead of wasting time. Mr. Saturn has a haiku for you this week;

“How much of our fear

Is simply the learning curve

For finding our strength?”

Aquarius- With the Sun, Venus, and Mercury all in your sign and squaring Jupiter in your House of Career you may have some of those close to you asking, “who are you and what have you done with (fill in your name)”? Neptune in your House of Self Worth is not helping to clear up this question, which is just fine with you as long as you remain the center of attention and Mars in your House of Groups has an audience to conquer. Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes will manage to keep things exciting much in the same way that a civil war is exciting, but at what price? Your ambition is ruthless right now, but so is your naiveté when it comes to how fast and loose you think you can play chicken with the balance of the universe. As Venus pulls into Pisces to end the week make sure that you’re not mistaking the admiration of others for love, especially when there is no humility present on your part. Mr. Saturn is feeling inspired this week so he has a haiku for you as well;

“We cast out lines to

Catch fish, yet rarely think past

The water’s surface”

Pisces- The Sun, Venus, and Mercury are all in your House of Confinement and squaring Jupiter in your House of Philosophy, meaning that perhaps the opinions of others are holding a little too much sway with you right now, regardless if you’re trying to conform or rebel as both represent flip sides of the same coin. Saturn and Pluto together in your House of Dreams could also seem like they’re really cracking the whip on you now as it feels like you’re being made to struggle more than you should have to for everything you need. Take heart, there is a silver lining in this cloud of difficulty surrounding you, although complaining about what’s happening or blaming others won’t help you to see it. When Venus enters your sign at the end of the week and starts to approach a beneficial alignment with Saturn in your House of Dreams, you may get a glimpse of the person you’re capable of becoming as you manage to rise to the occasion in a very difficult situation. Because Venus is currently very close to Neptune at this time and both are in your sign, the lesson here will likely involve compassion and selflessness, which may be just what you needed to learn to permanently change your luck.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #21 Weekly Horoscopes for 1/29 – 2/4, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 1/29 – 2/4, 2018


 Hi kids!!! Welcome again to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. There’s a song by The Mamas and the Poppas stuck in my head now and I just can’t stop humming it. It’s called “Own Kind Of Music” and I ‘d like to dedicate the lyrics of it to the 800,000 “Dreamers” out there who have been left swinging in the wind by our elected officials. For some reason these “suits” couldn’t seem to understand the fact that over 80% of your fellow Americans want you here to stay, including Mr. Saturn.

I’d also like to send the song out to all you “Lost” fans that might remember the tune from the first episode of season two when the world of “The Island” was suddenly transformed (4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42).

“Nobody can tell ya

There’s only one song worth singin’,

They may try and sell ya,

‘Cause it hangs them up to see someone like you.

But you’ve gotta make your own kind of music

Sing your own special song,

Make your own kind of music, even if nobody else sings along.”


Aries- This week’s Super Full Moon in your House of Creativity and Romance will be aligning with Mars in your House of Philosophy, meaning that you’ll likely be full of ideas, inspirations, and even some amorous desires that you’ll want to turn into immediate realities. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Career would point to time being on your side right now in terms of getting where you want to go, but only if you can remain patient and make sure to cross every “t” and dot every “i” as you move forward. The Sun, Venus, and Mercury in your House of Groups should insure plenty of cooperation from any playmates and/or co-conspirators as you push forward to conquer whatever it is you’re after, although with an inconjunct between the Super Moon and Neptune in your House of Secrets you could end up revealing more than you should to someone you’re just getting to know. You have a lot going for you now, just make sure not to let your current optimism turn into irresponsible euphoria or a sophomoric infatuation with fame and fortune. Mr. Saturn would remind you “Nothing exceeds like excess is only true in the film Scarface.”

Taurus- The struggle for you now is to realize that your current perspective is still largely based on whom you were and how you used to think, rather than who you’ve become and how the circumstances of your life have changed. This week’s Super Moon is in your House of Symbolic Foundations and it aligns with Mars in your House of Transformation, indicating that you’re already the person you’ve been striving to be; all that’s left now is to act like it. You currently possess the resources to make some long held dreams come true, therefore, have the confidence to take a calculated risk and stop thinking of what could go wrong as if you were being made to jump out of an airplane without a parachute. With Venus in your House of Career squaring off with Jupiter in your House of Partnerships, make sure that you also understand what it means to help people help themselves instead of letting them become codependent and drain your energy. Mr. Saturn would say, “Teach them to fish, don’t keep treating them at the fish market.”

Gemini- This could be a time when your usual racehorse mind might actually stop creating problems by trying to head life off at the pass and instead let things simply be what they are. This might allow you to remember why you’ve chosen the path you’re on rather than constantly worrying about whether or not you’ll be successful. This week’s Super Moon in your House of Communication aligning with Mars in your House of Relationships might find you finally being honest with someone close to you, instead of talking around things to spare their feelings while at the same time ignoring your own. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Death and Transformation are currently aligning with Neptune in your House of Public Image in order to help you realize that what you said to this person was not only in your best interests but theirs as well. In other words, the time has come for you to significantly close the anxiety gap between needing to be accepted by others and simply feeling good about doing what’s right for you. As the Jefferson Airplane sang, “You can do whatever you please/ The world’s waiting to be seized/ You can collect all neglect/ Or all the self respect you need.”

Cancer- The Moon is your ruling planet and this week’s Super Moon in Noble Leo should have you feeling like Popeye after he’s eaten his spinach, especially since it will be aligning with Mars in “I don’t give a sh*t” Sagittarius. Just remember to keep your cool with a hater, after all, like it say’s in the song that’s quoted at the beginning of this week’s horoscopes, “’Cause it hangs them up to see someone like you.” Mercury will also be aligning with Mars this week so you should not only feel spunkier than usual but also sharp as a razor, so sharp in fact that those haters I mentioned before won’t realize your rapier like wit has cut them to the quick until you’re long gone and their pride is dripping on the floor. A Fixed Jupiter/Venus square over the weekend involving your Houses of Creativity and Transformation should have you once again solving the world’s problems, yet at the same time also forgetting to keep for yourself some of that Infinite Love and Compassion you channel for everyone else. Nevertheless, your guardian Angel (and Mr. Saturn) will be watching over you, so don’t be surprised if there’s a nice glass of wine waiting when you get home.

Leo- Having the Super Moon in your sign this week begs the question, what do you need to do that you’ve been neglecting? Mars in flammable Sagittarius aligning with the Super Moon will undoubtedly light a fire under your arse; are you feeling the heat yet? Jupiter on the Home Front squaring Venus in your House of Relationships would suggest you tap into some of that Leo Nobility and take the lead to improve the situation for you and yours. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Routines have no time or patience for lip service now, so take off those lazy Leo lounging pants and grab a hammer and fix something (even if that means hitting yourself in the head a few times to stimulate the blood flow to your brain). Once you get in gear Uranus will floor it and then you’ll suddenly remember how you like being in charge and having everyone look up to you. And don’t worry about those lumps on your head. That fine mind of yours is now functioning at optimum level and that Leonine charisma has also kicked in, meaning that someone may just want to soothe what ails you (if you get my drift, and I know you do with all that blood circulating). Hell, even Mr. Saturn is blushing.

Virgo- With this week’s Super Moon in Leo aligning with Neptune in your House of Relationships and Mars in your Home area, this could be the perfect time to review the underlying dynamics of your closest associations. Jupiter in your House of Communications and Venus in your House of Routines are trying to point out that perhaps your willingness to always be of service to those you care for might have created a situation where these individuals are now taking you for granted. The transit of both Saturn and Pluto through your House of Creativity then becomes about taking the necessary steps to restructure how your relationships play out by learning to say “no” when it is appropriate for your sanity and well being. You could also be confronting a similar problem on the work front as you find yourself tiring under the strain of needing to be nice to people who are not being very nice to you. Take a deep breath or count to ten and if that doesn’t work then try to think of that glass of wine that’s waiting for you at home. You might also try to take solace in the insightful words of the U.S.A’s most recent Nobel Laureate in Literature, “I wish that for just one time you could stand inside my shoes/ You’d know what a drag it is to see you.”

Libra- Your are effectively being triangulated by feelings of dark foreboding as the week begins with foggy Neptune in your House of Routines and Work, Saturn and Pluto in your Home area, and a very personal Jupiter in Scorpio being squared by a very impersonal Venus in Aquarius. Add to all this the Super Moon in your House of Dreams aligning with Mars in your House of Writing and Communication and the stage is set for you to be feeling all dressed up with no place to go. Take heart though, only 13 minutes after the Super Moon arrives Mercury will enter your House of Creativity, meaning you could finally receive some tangible proof that the world hasn’t forgotten about you and that life really does go on after the sh*t has hit the fan. To continue the lyrics of the song that was quoted in the introduction to this week’s horoscopes, “It may be rough goin’,/ Just to do your thing’s the hardest thing to do.” I know this is a hard time but hang in there my scale friends, eventually good stuff will start to happen and balance out this massive fertilizer avalanche you’ve been experiencing so far in 2018.

Scorpio- As the Monty Python Boys used to say, “No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!” In other words, get ready for some surprises this week as the Super Moon explodes like a Super Nova in your House of Dreams just as Mercury arrives in Aquarius at the bottom of your chart to align with Mars in your House of Self Worth. This will all be very exciting and things will no doubt happen quickly, although with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Mental Processes and Thinking you will no doubt try to wrap your mind around it all before you allow yourself even the smallest “OMG, I DON’T BELIEVE THIS!” Well, believe it. You have an opportunity now to make your life into anything you want, you could even fall in love, but no matter what happens your control issues will be seriously challenged. Therefore, take some time over the weekend to reflect and ask yourself the following question, “Where do I want to be in 5 years and is it possible to get there if I’m not willing to trust what’s happening now? Your sign rules death, so why not try to look at all these current unexpected happenings as a kind of “petite morte”, after all, don’t the French say such little deaths feel good?

Sagittarius- Sometimes enlightenment is like a cannon going off and other times it’s the sound of one hand clapping. The Super Moon this week will be in Leo and your House of Philosophy and it will oppose Mercury in Aquarius and your House of Day to Day Thinking. Simply put, on the one hand you will have the Super Moon in the Sun ruled sign of Leo showing what’s possible, and on the other hand you will have communicative Mercury in Aquarius, which rules the collective and the status quo. The ego versus the hive mind with both channeling a tremendous amount of energy into your sign just as Mars, the planet of action, comes charging in. Saturn and Pluto currently in your House of Self Worth represent structure and destruction respectively, so with Mars arriving and awaiting further orders from you there’s no getting around the fact that this is a time of personal revolution. So, what will your manifesto be and who will write it? Jupiter behind the scenes aligning with Pluto and Saturn represents the philosophical dilemma of wealth versus ethics, or the eternal struggle of the haves and the have not’s. Which do you feel like and are you ready to re-evaluate what you think you deserve?

Capricorn- There are two conflicting tendencies going on within you right now. The first is about what you think people expect of you, while the other is much more intimate and represents what you secretly long for but fear you may not deserve. At this time, The Sun, Venus, and Mercury in your House of Self Worth represent your outward desire to be successful, although it is important to recognize how much this ambition could also be the projection of some hidden approval issues. The Super Moon in Leo this week will be in your House of Intimacy and it will align with Mars behind the scenes to ignite some very strong passions in you now for a deep one on one relationship. The more you try to subvert this emotional longing into a material form, the more depressed and frustrated you will likely get, especially with Saturn and Pluto in your sign opposing your House of Partnerships. Any truly profound metamorphosis for you at this time will likely have to do with how you approach an intimate one on one relationship rather than how you detach from your emotions to negotiate the professional sphere. As a word to the wise Mr. Saturn would suggest, “The time to hesitate is through/no time to wallow in the mire.”

Aquarius- You have been focused on succeeding at one thing for so long now you apparently have forgotten that life is a full spectrum affair. Well, the Super Moon in your House of Relationships aligning with Mars in your House of Dreams will serve to remind you what’s what in dramatic fashion. In fact, you should hear Cupid laughing at just about the same time as you feel an unexpected sharp pain in your butt. “OMG!!! Have I been shot with an arrow!!” Surprise!!! Unlike in your career, which you have been directing with ruthless efficiency over the last few months, this love thing is going to present a big time challenge to all your control and vulnerability issues. You’re not used to being emotional, but with Neptune currently in your House of Self Worth, you might be pleasantly (or unpleasantly) surprised at just how mushy you can get. Whatever you do though, try not to turn an affair of the heart into a performance in any way, shape, or form. With the Sun and Venus currently in your sign you certainly have enough charm and charisma going for you now to get away with play-acting at being the lover, however, don’t underestimate the backlash (and ultimate regret on your part) if you engage someone else’s heart and then get cold feet. As the song goes, “What’s it all about when you sort it out, Alfie?/Are we meant to take more than we give/Or are we meant to be kind?”

Pisces- Jupiter in your House of Philosophy squaring Venus behind the scenes is going to make you even more sensitive than usual. Add to this the Super Moon aligning with Mars and Mercury and you will probably feel more courageous about expressing yourself emotionally than you ever have before. This will certainly go against type and the “cool” image you have previously cultivated, but that’s a good thing, maybe even a great thing. Neptune in your sign has had you lost in a fog for a while and no doubt in true Neptunian fashion you have instead tried to pretend like you really know what’s going on. It’s not only been a rollercoaster ride for you, but for everyone that cares about you as well. The good news is that while Neptune can be about illusion, it can also be about enlightenment. So if we now go back to the square of Jupiter and Venus, we can start to see that the action of Jupiter in your House of Philosophy is trying to clear up some of that Neptunian confusion surrounding the nature of your feelings. This is because with Venus in the universal and unemotional sign of Aquarius, you are being given some guidance in how to get passed the confinement of your fear so that you may experience the strength, vulnerability, and forgiveness necessary to fully experience true love. And like the song say’s, “All You Need is Love”….Dah, da da da da….

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #20 Weekly Horoscopes for 1/22 – 1/28, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 1/22 – 1/28, 2018


 Hi kids!!! The Sun is now solidly in the sign of Aquarius and as the song goes,

“Harmony and understanding

Sympathy and trust abounding

No more falsehoods or derisions

Golden living dreams of visions

Mystic crystal revelations

And the mind’s true liberation…”

Yeah, right, first though we’ll have to get over this current “Fire and Fury,” reopen the government, and then decide which form of “shit story” we want to believe. No puedo!!!


Aries- With the power couple of The Sun and Venus in your House of Groups this week you need to get out there and work the room! I know you think networking can be phony, but that’s only if you’re a charlatan. With Mercury approaching a conjunction with Pluto in your House of Career you are nothing short of a stone cold killer now, except with a fashion sense, charm, and integrity. In fact you’ll probably be the sharpest tool in any shed you find yourself in at this time, so make sure you ninja up and subtly make sushi out of whatever (and whoever) stands in your way. The arc of the Moon this week begins in your sign and then continues through your Houses of Earnings and Communication, meaning get out and “do you” without any apologies, and remember the line from Glengarry Glen Ross, “A-B-C… A-Always, B-Be, C-Closing… Always be closing, always be closing.”

Taurus- Mercury and Pluto are getting thick as thieves in your House of Philosophy right now, meaning your “Spidey Sense” will be tingling like crazy and you’ll feel like you just know stuff before it happens. Add Jupiter in Scorpio and your House of Relationships to the aforementioned mix and no one will be able to escape your X-ray vision. No one. Later in the week when Mars enters Sagittarius and opposes the Moon in Gemini make sure you don’t feel too much sympathy for someone close to you that has just made a mistake you knew they were going to make. With all your power of insight now, realize that how you dole out your sympathy in this situation will mark an important evolutionary step for you in terms of being able to shut down manipulative people who try to take advantage of your good nature. Mr. Saturn say’s, “the bait and switch works because the mark takes the bait.” Nuff said!!!

Gemini- It is one thing to see through other people’s BS, it is quite another matter if what they’re doing throws you off your game so that you end up playing by their rules. Mercury and Pluto will join hands in your House of Transformation midweek and together these two represent penetrating insight. Add to this an alignment with Jupiter and any secrets discovered at this time could turn into some very valuable knowledge for the future. However, keep in mind, if this knowledge doesn’t translate into a sense of self-empowerment for you then it’s merely data. You must realize that what needs to change here is not someone else’s bad (that’s their karma). To really benefit from discovering someone else’s manipulations or bad behaviour you must be able to see how what they’ve done is a way to help you realize your own truth. When Mars moves into Sagittarius and opposes the Moon on your relationship axis just before the weekend, make sure that you’re not blaming anyone else for what’s going on if it’s you who are giving your power away.

Cancer- With the impending conjunction of Mercury and Pluto in your House of Relationships about to align with Jupiter in your House of Creativity, the important thing now is to rethink how you interact with others. Not in terms of any surface behavior, but rather how you feel about yourself before a face-to-face even occurs. The power couple of Venus and the Sun now transiting through your House of Transformation will suggest you set aside your emotional shoulder bag and all the heavy stuff it contains from the past. As Mars enters your House of Work over the weekend let its newly acquired Sagittarius optimism inspire you to action. Try not to hesitate because of the fear you sense in others who still have hang-ups you outgrew long ago. This can be a turnaround week for you philosophically if you can just try to behave like you’re at a New Orleans funeral. In other words, bury the sadness from the past and turn the dirge that accompanied your entrance into a jazzy theme for your exit.

Leo- All of the fixed signs can be oblivious at times, but you Lion people can really take that clueless ball and run with it. As a result, the Mercury/Pluto conjunction this week in your House of Daily Routines could really end up being a slap in the face that you don’t see coming. With Jupiter in Scorpio moving through your House of Family, don’t be surprised if one or more of your relatives have a bone to pick with you. Of course you’ll react badly because you won’t know what they’re talking about. Let me spell it out for you. The Lunar Arc this week goes from Aries through Taurus to Gemini, or from selfishness to responsibility to adapting. In other words, it’s time to shift your priorities from what’s easy to what’s necessary because you’ve been taking someone else’s efforts for granted and they’re done with your sense of entitlement. As the Moon ends the week in Cancer and your House of Confinement, you’re likely going to feel that these recent criticisms directed at you have been unfair and your accusers are cold and insensitive. Try to realize (if you can) that this is not about what you’ve done, but what you haven’t done. Try a little humility instead of being righteous and in all likelihood you’ll be forgiven. Like the Beatles sang, “Man I was mean but I’m changing my scene and I’m doing the best that I can.”

Virgo- You could very well have an “aha” moment this week regarding a creative challenge. If that’s the case, thank Mr. Mercury and Mr. Pluto for all their great investigative work. Of course Jupiter in your House of Thinking and Communication was also instrumental in this epiphany, not to mention the Sun and Venus in detached Aquarius for helping you to put your frustration aside and keep your nose to the grindstone. Of course this doesn’t mean they’ll be blue skies from now on, especially since Mars will be entering your House of Home and on its arrival will oppose a Gemini Moon in your House of Public Image. Foggy Neptune is involved in this meeting as well as he throws in his two cents from your House of Relationships. You can’t be all things for all people so determine some priorities for yourself and be matter of fact with those who want to drink your blood. Mr. Saturn’s Haiku this week is for you;

“Doing for others

What they should do themselves is

A control issue”

Libra- The Magickal term that will describe this week for you is “Crossing the Abyss.” In a nutshell this means that you’ll likely have to let go of something old so that something new can come into your life. This probably sounds cool, but most people are very attached to who they have learned to be in order to fit in with everyone else, therefore, this transition might end up being really uncomfortable based on the reactions you get from others. I know this isn’t necessarily good news for you endlessly equivocating Libra folk, but you’ll probably realize it was all for the best on the back end. Mercury and Pluto conjunct in your House of Symbolic Foundations could signal some really important discoveries, especially since they both align with Jupiter in your House of Self Worth. This could mean a possible windfall of cash or an unusual opportunity. It could also be a meaningful transition, like when Dr. Bruce Banner turns into the Incredible Hulk. Granted, he does usually lose a set of clothes, but on the other hand he also gains super powers. Sounds stressful, I know, which is why Mr. Saturn feels you deserve a haiku this week;

“You can’t expect what

Will set you free, only hope

That you accept it”

Scorpio- The natural detective in you will likely be inspired to come out this week, so, what do you think you might find? Well, Mr. Saturn ain’t gonna be no spoiler and ruin a good mystery, but as a hint you should pay attention to Mercury and Pluto digging around in your House of Education and communicating with Jupiter in your sign. The Lunar Arc going from your House of Work through your House of Partnerships and then into your house of Legacies could mean…uh-uh, no more hints. Oh, okay…Somebody may want to reward your good work with something nice….nuff said!!! The Sun and Venus are playing house in your Home and Family area, which could mean your investigative skills could be directed toward some home decorating, or you could end up having a guest for a while. Just make sure you set some boundaries with this person so you don’t have to discover something bad about them that you didn’t know before. Then again, that’s what makes a good mystery; the detective never suspects where the original crime will lead. As the song goes, “I don’t know how much more of this I can take/ She’s filing her nails while they’re dragging the lake….”

Sagittarius- Pay attention to the writing on the wall this week and you just might be able to uncover some information that could help you dodge a bullet that’s being aimed at your back by someone you thought was a friend. Jupiter in your House of Secrets will act as a protective influence, thereby allowing you to follow with impunity the lead being forged by Mercury and Pluto in solid Capricorn as they investigate behind the scenes to uncover whatever it is you need to know. The Lunar Arc this week would further suggest you being the detective as it crosses your Houses of Creativity, Work, and Partnerships, meaning you could stand to benefit in all three areas. When Mars enters your sign at the end of the week it will oppose the Moon in your House of Relationships, reiterating what was mentioned earlier about defending yourself from some slanderous rumors being circulated by a dubious source. Nebulous Neptune will also be involved here so Mr. Saturn would suggest following this sage advice, “Use all your well-learned politesse/ Or I’ll lay your soul to waste, mm yeah.”

Capricorn- With Mercury and Pluto coming together in your sign this week the time has come when you need to look people in the eye and shoot straight at the target. Jupiter in your House of Groups is aligning solidly with this need for honesty, so make sure you do the right thing even if it seems like it might lead to a hassle. Whether you realize it or not others are looking to your lead so trust your instincts and people will trust you. The Sun and Venus are a power couple in your House of Earned Income now so make sure you “do you” without any apologies and you should see your brand escalate in value right before your eyes. Later in the week Mars will enter your House of Confinement and oppose a Gemini Moon in your House of Work. After the principled stand you made to start the week try to refrain now from either being overly opportunistic or slipping into a sort of lazy limbo where you feel you have somehow earned the right to coast for awhile on your accomplishments. As Grace Slick once sang, “Two Heads can be put together/ And you can fill both your feet with sand/No one will know you’ve gutted your mind/ But what will you do with your bloody hands?”

Aquarius- On the surface you’re all charm and glitz right now due to the fact that both the Sun and Venus are cake walking through your sign. Behind the scenes though Mercury and Pluto are rummaging around for something deeper and less ephemeral than the shiny sequins of Venus. Jupiter in your House of Public Image and Career will continue to puff up these illusions, yet at the same time the King of the Planets is also slipping deeper into the shadows being opened up by the investigations of both Mercury and Pluto. Simply put, this is a time of initiation for you so try not to accept much of anything at face value. There is both an angel and a devil within you right now that needs to be dealt with and the one that wins will be the one you feed. Just remember Robert Mitchum’s murderous character in “The Night of the Hunter” when he exhibits the tattoos of Love and Hate on his fingers and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.

Pisces- Neptune rules both illusion and higher consciousness and as this foggy planet currently transits through your sign it should not be unusual for you to have alternating experiences of both profound confusion and liberating enlightenment. The second of these two states will likely begin your week as the Sun and Venus infuse your inner depths with a sense of universal love. Meanwhile, a Mercury/Pluto conjunction in your House of Dreams will alternately provide you with a deep awareness of your responsibilities. You know clearly at this time what the right thing to do is and, amazingly enough, you will likely try your best to do it. Jupiter in your House of Philosophy will motivate you to rise to the occasion for a loved one, which will probably play out in real time as Mars enters noble Sagittarius just before the weekend and you square off with someone whose questionable behavior you can no longer ignore. The Lunar Arc will give you a temporary respite from some recent financial difficulties, so don’t be surprised if you become the recipient of some timely generosity, either through an unusual opportunity or an unexpected gift.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #17 Weekly Horoscopes for 1/1-1/7, 2017


Weekly Horoscopes for 1/1 – 1/7, 2018


 Hi Kids!!! Happy New Year!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. Before starting the Weekly Horoscopes for 2018, I would first like to take a moment to recount a little story that happened to me at the end of last year during the week between Christmas and New Years.

After putting away a couple of courses at an all-you-can-eat buffet that I was attending with my wife and her family, I eventually decided to get myself some dessert. When I went over to the ice cream station I encountered a Little Old Man in a hoody and a baseball hat standing there with an empty bowl in his hands and a very confused look on his face. I waited behind him for a moment but when I realized he wasn’t on line and was just standing there I said, “Excuse me” and went around him. “There’s no scoopers,” he said, and upon surveying the situation I could see the Old Guy was right. I looked around to see if there was an employee nearby who could help us, but the ice cream counter was situated in a far corner of the restaurant and there was no one around. It was then I suddenly remembered my unused spoon back at the table so I went to get it. The Little Old Man was still standing there with his bowl when I returned and once again he announced, “There’s no scoopers.” While I used the spoon I brought back from the table to serve myself some ice cream, I casually remarked to the Old Fellow, “Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands.” When I was finished serving myself I said, “goodbye” to him, but all he did was continue to stand there in silence with his bowl and stare at the ice cream.

When I returned to the table and repeated this incident to my wife she replied, “Wow, that’s a wonderful metaphor of life, you should include it in Mr. Saturn. Needless to say I followed her advice, which makes the moral of this New Year’s story for me, “Listen to your wife.”


Aries- As the year begins, ambition will be your middle name with The Sun, Venus, and Pluto all moving together through your House of Career to align with Jupiter and Mars holding hands in your House of Death and Transformation. You are resourceful and persistent at this time and with a Super Full Moon in Cancer in your House of Foundations you will also be feeling an almost biological imperative to establish something new for yourself that will stand the test of time. On the second of January, Uranus will go station/direct in your sign, which should help you turn some of last years frustration into originality and a new sense of panache for 2018. Mr. Saturn would say, “You’re trending!”

Taurus- The Lunar Arc this week through the lowest part of your chart will activate some deep seeded feelings of longing that should inspire you to re-visit some dreams you have been procrastinating about for far too long. This could involve either establishing a new home base or beginning a new career direction as The Sun, Venus, and Pluto are all activating the part of you that wants to make your mark in the world by establishing something both progressive meaningful. With Mercury moving direct toward Uranus and a Super Full Moon in your House of Thinking it is also important that you are willing to bend or even break some rules now to get yourself out of the logical and comfortable rut you’re luxuriating in. Mr. Saturn say’s, “it’s not about what you can get away with, it’s about what you need to get away from.”

Gemini- The Super Full Moon that starts this week will be in the sign of Cancer and your House of Self Worth. This could be either a recipe for insecurity or a rallying cry for success as this Super Moon opposes The Sun, Venus, and Pluto in your House of Transformation and trines a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in Scorpio. Sometimes fear motivates people to do remarkable things and at other times it freezes them in their tracks. Usually it all boils down to what you feel you have to lose; and we’re not talking about your material status, we’re talking about you’re spiritual and emotional net worth if you are letting yourself be defined by the approval of others. Also be careful mid-week that you don’t bite off your nose to spite your face as a Leo Moon aligns with a stationing Uranus in Aries, a fire combo that can be about irrationality as much as rebelliousness.

Cancer- With a stellium of Planets (specifically The Sun, Venus, and Pluto) in your House of Relationships opposing the Super Full Moon in your sign, this is a week that will reveal both how much others will need from you as well as how new situations will offer some unexpected solutions to some old problems. Mercury in your House of Daily Routines approaching a station/direct Uranus in your House of Public Image should certainly bring some surprises, not the least of which will be the swiftness with which circumstances can change. A Jupiter/Mars conjunction in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune should also bring some surprises, specifically how fast your intuition works as it deftly parry’s and returns one blow after another as fate prepares you for the destiny you’ve always dreamed of.

Leo- With the Super Full Moon lighting your inner recesses like a roman candle and a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in your House of Symbolic Foundations rumbling like an earthquake, who (or what) is to blame if your soul is feeling unsettled and your life seems on shaky ground? The logjam of Capricorn Planets in your House of Work and routines would suggest you’d like to blame it on your boss or anyone else who is expecting anything from you, while Mercury moving quickly toward Uranus would suggest it’s probably anyone who’d remind you that the only one responsible for what happens in your life and how you feel is you. Neptune in your House of Transformation would further indicate that whichever answer you choose you’ll still feel miserable, so Mr. Saturn would suggest blaming yourself because at least that way you’d be in charge and that’s where you Leo folks always want to be.

Virgo- This is a week for doing, not talking. A Jupiter/Mars conjunction in Scorpio and your House of Communication working with The Sun, Venus, and Pluto in Capricorn and your House of Creativity (as well as Neptune in your House of Relationships) should collectively motivate you to talk softly but carry a big stick. The Super Full Moon in Cancer will probably make you more tolerant (and patient) than usual and Mercury in Sagittarius approaching Uranus should make you as sharp as a razor in order to slice through whatever bullsh*t may come your way while leaving a minimum of blood on the floor. The Lunar Arc this week will also aid you in realizing that you’re probably more in control of your life than you’ve ever been before. All Mr. Saturn has to say at this point is, “High five!”

Libra- This week a Super Full Moon in Cancer will form a Grand Trine with both a Mars/Jupiter conjunction in your House of Self Worth and Neptune in your House of Work and Daily Routines, which means you are probably feeling inspired to move forward with either your career in general or a creative project you have high hopes for. However, as the song goes, “Turn, turn, turn, there is a time for every purpose under heaven…” meaning that The Sun, Venus, and Pluto marching now through Capricorn and your Home sector may be requiring you to focus your energies elsewhere for the time being. Saturn is also there in your House of Home and that should help you to realize beyond the shadow of a doubt that whatever seems to be holding back the Dream Express for you at this time is an absolutely necessary delay, in fact it is an evolutionary precursor for whatever it is you are hoping to be. So, have a glass of wine with Mr. Saturn and sing along, “Time, time, time, is on my side, yes it is….”

Scorpio- You have so many good ideas now it’s like a convention of fireflies in a shady grove on a hot summer night. Don’t let inspiration pass without action at this time and be a dreamer with a house full of travel brochures who has never went anywhere. A Jupiter /Mars conjunction will be exact in your sign this week, which in turn forms a powerful Grand Trine with the Super Moon in your House of Ideas and Neptune in your House of Creativity. Make the time to play, create, or even howl at the moon if you’d like because if you’re feeling it in your heart then it is necessary to share it with someone. A stellium of planets in practical Capricorn will help you think all this through and make it real, just make sure you’re following your bliss.

Sagittarius- The Super Moon in Cancer that starts the week is in your House of Legacies, meaning either your Mama is leaving you a lot of dough or you’ve been sacrificing a lot of yourself and hoping there’s an afterlife to make up for it. The Sun, Venus, Pluto, and Mr. Saturn all in Capricorn and your House of Self Worth are combining with Neptune in your House of Family to set the bar of responsibility quite high for you, making you feel as if you’re pole vaulter in the Olympics hoping for a medal. Mercury coming into alignment with a soon to be direct Uranus in your House of Creativity should serve as an inspiration for you to break out of this approval rut and leave someone else to clean up after the users (and abusers) in your life, although it could also mean that you’ll pride yourself inordinately at being able to bend over backwards like a circus contortionist to impress these ignoramuses. In addition, Jupiter and Mars in your House of Confinement are like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid trying to bust out of jail, although any decent historian (or even Mr. Saturn) will tell you, “they were never in jail together.” Think on that one for a while.

Capricorn- The Relationship Axis in your chart is overloaded with The Sun, Venus, Pluto, and Saturn all in your sign opposing the Cancer Super Full Moon in your House of Partnerships. Are you sweet on anybody now?, Is anyone sweet on you? Have you even noticed? Jupiter in your House of Friends aligning with Neptune in your House of Communication could mean someone you think of as just a friend may secretly like you a whole lot more. Or perhaps someone has been sending you some pretty clear signals and you’re just oblivious? As Mercury in your House of Confinement moves into an eventual alignment with Uranus, you could finally come to realize all the defense mechanisms and walls you’ve set up around yourself under the guise of being “too busy” and “having no time” are just excuses for being too chicken to open your heart. “Awww,” say’s Mr. Saturn, “why I bet plenty of people would like to get to know a sweetie pie like you.” Nuff said!

Aquarius- The Sun, Venus, Pluto, and Saturn operating now behind the scenes in your chart all represent the weight of responsibility hanging heavily on your shoulders. At the same time Mercury moving through your House of Groups toward Uranus in your House of Communication is all about exploring every possible angle to create solutions. The Super Full Moon in Cancer this week has you worrying whether or not you’re up to these current challenges, however, Neptune in your House of Earned Income could very well save the day by providing you with an unusual opportunity to acquire some much needed cash. Likewise, Jupiter and Mars conjunct in your House of Career should give you all the drive and courage you should need to see you through these difficult times. It might seem like you’re at the Alamo, but as the song goes, “We are the champions, my friend, and we’ll keep on fighting to the end!”

Pisces- As long as Neptune remains in your sign the challenge will be to stay grounded, not only in regards to your long term goals but in terms of your day to day existence as well. The Sun, Venus, Pluto and Saturn in your House of Dreams will help to keep your nose to the grindstone and make sure things stay organized, while a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in Scorpio will motivate you to remain focused. Mercury in your House of Career moving into an eventual alignment with Uranus in your House of Earned Income later in the week could bring some unexpected or unusual ways to make a little extra cash, although getting back to Neptune for a moment, make sure you are saving something for a rainy day from anything extra that comes in and not just spending it all. As Jimi Hendrix used to sing, “Castles made of sand fall into the sea, eventually…”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #16 Weekly Horoscopes for 12/25-12/31, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/25-12/31, 20017


Hi kids!!! This will be the last Mr. Saturn’s Stars for 2017, but don’t be sad. I wouldn’t be Mr. Saturn if I weren’t coming back to crack the whip on you through 2018 as well. So enjoy your holidays, reflect on where you’ve been and where you hope to go, and I’ll be here again soon enough to haunt you like death and taxes.

Aries- This has been a long and busy year for you, though strangely enough in this final week before the New Year you might find yourself surprisingly energized rather than exhausted. The Lunar Arc this week will begin in your sign and as it squares Venus conjunct Saturn on Christmas Day in your House of Career you will feel not only proud of what you’ve managed to accomplish in 2017, but more importantly you’ll be driven to move ahead with new plans for 2018 as soon as possible. With Jupiter and Mars coming into alignment with Pluto you might also start to notice more of a symbiosis with others than you have in the past. Neptune in your House of What is Hidden will lend a very Occult air to these new feelings of connection as you find yourself turning away from your usual misanthropic leanings and actually trusting others to do the right thing without an argument first! Mr. Saturn say’s, “Namaste!”

Taurus- A stellium of planets in your House of Long distance Travel combining with Neptune in your House of Friends and a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in your House of Relationships could see you either on the road for the Holidays to visit someone you’ve been missing, or else entertaining some local strays in your own cozy nest. A personal New Moon in the middle of the week should put you in a contemplative mood as you take stock of the changes you’ve made over the past year and what the future looks like from your new perspective. An unaspected Uranus in your House of Confinement still has you feeling an itch to do something different or be something more, although maybe that’s just about being okay with who you are at any given moment. As the late Dr. Timothy Leary once said, “You cannot use butterfly language to communicate with caterpillars.”

Gemini- A personal New Moon coinciding with the New Year will find you experiencing an epiphany of sorts as you realize even though there is no “I” in the word team, there is certainly a “Me” and that could be where your problems with relationships begin. The Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto currently in your House of Transformation and Shared Resources are all about making a serious long term commitment to a special someone. The alignment of these aforementioned planets with Jupiter, Mars, and Neptune would further indicate that any such commitment would have to begin by relinquishing some of your legendary control issues. It’s not enough to simply want to be different, the trick is to let your self be transformed by what challenges you and that must necessarily begin with trust. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

“When people say they

Want to change, it often means

They hope things will change”

Cancer- Right up until New Years Eve you’ll be burning the candle at both ends trying to keep up with a whirlwind of current challenges, as well as preparing for whatever may be looming on the horizon for 2018. After a relatively calm Christmas with Venus conjunct Saturn in your House of Partnerships, Uranus in your Public Sector and this week’s Lunar Arc should start things off with a bang. Not to fear though, with Jupiter and Mars conjunct in your House of Creativity working with The Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto in that same House of Partnerships that furnished you with a safe holiday, you and your significant other (as well as any other friends or family members who might get involved) should be more than a successful match for any emergencies that might come down the pike. Neptune in your House of Philosophy will also mean that your legendary intuition will be sharper than usual, so pay attention and have faith that you’ll know what to do as your comfort zone continues to morph into a new and more courageous version of you. Like the song goes, “You’ve got to pick up every stitch….”

Leo- You hate to say no to anyone, much less those you care about, but to keep your sanity this holiday week you’re going to have to disappoint someone; just make sure it’s not yourself. Mars and Jupiter in the sign of Scorpio and your House of Family could be about conflicts at home or with in-laws. The Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto in your House of Work will likely mean that somebody on the job is going to try to dump something on you that is not your responsibility. Whether it’s a family member or a co-worker, you’re going to have to stand up for yourself because no one else is really thinking about your needs. Like the Oracle told Neo in the Matrix, “On the one hand you’ll have Morpheus’s life and on the other hand you’ll have your own.” Mr. Saturn say’s, “You may not want to believe you’re the one until someone rudely tries to convince you they are.”

Virgo- Whenever you think about being responsible it’s usually in regard to someone else’s needs. In the past this way of thinking has often put you in a difficult position and you’ve sworn repeatedly to yourself to be tougher in the future so you won’t be taken advantage of. With 4 major planets now in the duty oriented sign of Capricorn (and ironically your House of Fun) the time has come for you to put your needs first and make sure you enjoy yourself. Noble Jupiter aligning with compassionate Neptune should help with this #mefirst movement you need to get going, while the Lunar Arc approaching Mercury should motivate you to oppose the expectations of a friend or partner who always assumes their way is automatically your way. Listen carefully to the words as Mr. Saturn sings one of his favorite Dylan songs, “Maggies Farm:”

“Well, I try my best

To be just like I am

But everybody wants you

To be just like them”

Libra- Yours is a sign of partnership and this week the themes of loyalty, cooperation, and, most importantly, love, will all be front and center. The Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto crowded into your House of Family and Foundations will bring you a quiet, yet inspirational Christmas at home, even if it’s just you and your partner. After that the Jupiter/Mars conjunction currently going on in your House of Self Worth will align with Neptune and inspire you to join hands and circle the wagons with your loved ones (even those you’re not especially thrilled with) to overcome any obstacle or challenge that may be looming on the horizon. As the 2017 calendar ends, a Mercury/Moon opposition could bring you the inspiration for a new direction in the coming year. Make sure you take notes and don’t let these thoughts pass. “This could be big,” say’s Mr. Saturn, as he pours you another glass of Pinot Noir waiting for the ball to drop……..

 Scorpio- As 2017 ends the only planet traveling above the horizon in your chart will be the Moon. All the other planets are passing beneath the horizon, which is traditionally thought to be symbolic of one’s private or inner self. Hence as the year concludes you should probably reflect on what 2017 has meant for you psychologically rather than what you have accomplished materially. In other words, no matter what you’ve managed to do or acquire, are you happy? Mars and Jupiter in your sign lining up with Neptune in your House of Fun would speak to inspiration, is that how you’re feeling? A stellium of planets in Capricorn would conversely speak to practicality and change, so what needs to be different for you to feel that inner fire? Resolve to trust yourself more in 2018 and then allow yourself to dream. Like the song say’s, “I tell you love, sister, it’s just a kiss away, it’s just a kiss away….”

Sagittarius- Mercury in your House of Communication is rapidly approaching an aspect to innovative Uranus in your House of Creativity that will be exact in the first week of 2018. Meanwhile, the Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto are all currently in your House of Self Worth so that the immediate question becomes, what practical steps need to be taken RIGHT NOW to set up all that impending Mercury/Uranus energy? In other words, what will it take for you to focus on what’s important rather than on Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio gossiping behind the scenes? No doubt you’re focused on what they’re saying as they shoot the shit with illusionary Neptune, but what has believing that dirty little secret called “I’m not good enough” gotten you in the past? Just before New Year’s a Gemini Moon will first square Neptune and then sextile Uranus, so pay attention to what you believe about yourself and what options that leaves you. Can you hear Mr. Saturn singing? “Oh mother, tell your children, not to do what I have done…. To spend your life in sin and misery in the House of the Rising Sun….”

Capricorn- Logic will always teach us something, especially when the world doesn’t conform to our expectations. Conversely, intuition and emotion together will always lie, but separately, never. Sorry for waxing philosophical, but this week could either be a logjam or a dam opening for you depending on what you believe. Four major planets in your sign aligning with Jupiter and Mars represents pragmatism central, while on New year’s Eve both Mercury and a Gemini Moon squaring Neptune will be visions of sugar plums dancing in your head. Which is the truth? Uranus all by itself in your House of Foundations is proverbial chaos, meaning you really never know what’s going to happen until it does. Now if I told you that you’re a genius you’d probably not agree, however (and here’s the rub) if I said you weren’t good enough to succeed you might consider it. Decide which you believe and then see where it brings you. That is the only logic Mr. Saturn thinks you’ll need for 2018.

Aquarius- Your mind is as ubiquitous as the wind. Your creativity is like the will of a tiger as it mesmerizes its prey. Your spirit is a majestic mountain that seems to touch the heavens. You are feeling invincible, yet all things must eventually pass and when these miraculous events you are experiencing finally fade, then who will you be? Another insufficient breeze on a sweltering day in the city? Another old and tired tiger in a zoo? Or perhaps another mountain reduced to a hill after it is divided in half by a highway? With The Sun, Saturn, Venus, Pluto, and pretty soon Mercury all in Capricorn and your House of Confinement, the writing is on the wall for something that can’t last forever to eventually change. This is not a doomsday prophecy or simple hatin’, it is merely a warning not to take yourself too seriously. There is a famous story about the Taoist Sage Chuang Tzu who couldn’t decide if he was a butterfly or a man. “I wonder if he was an Aquarius too?” asks Mr. Saturn.

Pisces- Is Reality subjective or objective? If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to see it did the tree really fall? The 20th Century Mystic Teacher Gurdjieef once said, “Man’s greatest weakness is his suggestibility.” With Jupiter and Mars arm in arm in your House of Philosophy and aligning with Neptune in your sign, the propensity now is to believe whatever you want and not doubt your ego until you’re smacked down. A stellium of Capricorn planets in your House of Dreams would suggest you err on the side of caution if possible, and if not, then make it possible because you don’t want some damn hypothetical tree flattening you in a world where bones break and people fail because they believe all kinds of stupid things. As the New Year arrives and sociable Mercury transits your House of Public Image, don’t take those back at home for granted. After all, they are the only ones you can really depend on to yell “Timber!!!”

Saturn Enters Capricorn 12/19/2017


 On December 19th, 2017 at 11:48 p.m. EST Saturn will return to its home sign of Capricorn for the first time since February 6, 1991 (approximately 26 years ago).

Make no mistake about it this is a big deal. Why? Because it takes Saturn approximately 28 years to circle the zodiac so that one revolution of Saturn around the Sun is roughly equal to a generation of people growing to maturity, and growing up, either literally or figuratively, is always a big deal. There are also many who believe Saturn is the most powerful of the planets, due in large part to the fact that the evidence seems to show Mr. Saturn consistently changes the energies of the other archetypes more than they appear to cramp his style. That he’s returning now to his home turf simply means Saturn should be that much more powerful over the next 3 years. As a result, it’s likely we’ll witness the chickens coming home to roost in a great many situations where irresponsible behavior and/or outright neglect have created problems that can no longer be ignored.

The standard interpretation of the Saturnian archetype is that it represents authority in all its forms. Your parents, teachers, coaches, government officials, anyone with a title, a badge, or a uniform, from your boss at work to the President of the United States, are all examples of the Saturn energy. He is also symbolic of the society at large, in fact according to the Greeks, during the Golden Age of Man Saturn was the King of the Gods who ruled the earth like a strict father before his more liberal son Zeus forcibly usurped the throne.

On a personal level Saturn is cold, harsh, analytical, oppressive, and rigid. Although to his credit he can also be fair, diligent, strong, organized, efficient, and insightful. In my weekly horoscopes entitled Mr. Saturn’s Stars I like to portray him as being snarky, sarcastic, smart, wise, eloquent, and cool like Clint Eastwood when Dirty Harry decides to shoot someone down with a one liner instead of a bullet from his 44 Magnum.

The bottom line is that Saturn has no patience with bullshit in any form. When he arrives in an area of your natal chart Saturn’s transit will bring about change and restructuring according to what is best for the overall truth and balance of the situation. Saturn does not care one iota for your comfort zone or, for that matter, the illusions of a society that has fallen out of balance or become self-destructive. For the United States this is especially poignant, as over the last year we have watched our Democracy erode under the pressure of greed and special interests to the point where we seriously face the possibility of losing many of the rights and powers our nation’s founders thought to be “self-evident.”

Saturn and the U.S. in 2017

 Our 45th President was elected when the Sun was in Scorpio trine Neptune (power, secrecy, illusion) and Saturn was in late Sagittarius trine Uranus. During that time the passion of rebellion against the status quo represented by idealistic Uranus (and manipulated by #45 in his Presidential campaign) served to obscure and somewhat miss-direct Saturn’s usual sense of objective responsibility, which was significantly compromised by the Planet of Structure’s position in the wooly and often self-absorbed sign of Sagittarius. In other words, the propensity of the Sag energy to believe whatever it wants was in full bloom when a shady Real Estate developer was elected to our country’s highest office instead of someone we thought would drain the swamp of corruption in Washington D.C.. Now that Saturn is returning to its well-structured and austere home of Capricorn it will seem much more in character, like a ruthlessly efficient cop who has been summoned to answer a complaint about the out of control frat party currently going on in the White House. Mark my words, in 2018 Saturn will be kicking asses and taking names.


For the remainder of 2017 Saturn’s aspects will serve more as table setters rather than providing a meal of any real substance. Other than aspects to a Lunar Arc of Pisces, Aries, and Taurus, the only major planet Saturn will meet with before the New Year will be when it conjuncts Venus on Christmas Day. Enjoy your illusions and comforts while you can, the Revolution will be coming soon enough and this time it will be televised!


Saturn’s Aspects to the Major Planets in 2018

(Excluding the Moon) as it transits from 1- 11 degrees Capricorn



January- The only aspect Saturn will have this month is a conjunction with Mercury in Capricorn (Jan 12). Communications around this time will be pragmatic, practical, and limited to the facts. This is a good time to put together a business strategy, though the downside might be a decided lack of imagination or adventure. There will be a tendency during the couple of days that surround this aspect for people and organizations to be real sticklers regarding rules and regulations.


February- During this month Saturn will have its craggy shoreline washed 3 times by planets transiting through the watery sign of Pisces. On the 16th a Venus/Moon conjunction in the sign of the fishes will represent a decidedly humanitarian energy filled with compassion and peacefulness as it looks to Saturn for both institutional support and protection. Between the 21st and the 26th Mercury and the Sun will both aspect Saturn and perhaps attempt some sleight of hand designed to soften (or perhaps even confuse) the planet of structure. This is also a time during which people could become more vocal than usual about their feelings.


March- During this month Saturn will begin a series of recurring aspects with Mercury that will extend over the next 4 months. A square to Mercury in Aries On the 10th, followed by another square to Venus in Aries on the 13th and to the Sun in Aries on the 29th , could make this a month of ongoing disagreements as the aggressive ram impetuously squares off against Capricornian structure. Tradition will likely hold sway here against any rebellious or renegade influences trying to influence the status quo, however, in true Aries style expect whatever the topic is to be revisited next month during Mercury retrograde.


April- This will be Mr. Saturn’s busiest month as he engages in 6 major aspects as well as going station/retrograde on the 17th. The first aspect is a conjunction with Mars on the 2nd, which could initially represent an obstacle or a very restrictive influence, especially since Mercury retrograde in Aries, revisiting the square from last month, will follow it on the 5th. A trine of Saturn conjunct the Moon to Venus in Taurus on the 7th should offer some much needed stability, changing the previously mentioned Mars/Saturn aspect from one where things seemed to be stuck to that of a more flowing situation where matters will instead feel more solid and organized. A third square between Saturn (now retrograde) and Mercury in Aries (now direct) will occur on the 25, followed by a trine to the Sun in Taurus on the 29th. The ongoing debate between Mr. Saturn and Mercury should be mostly sorted out by this time as the initial push and pull between the Ram and the Goat has, for the time being, transformed into a new understanding that should allow both of these Creatures to board a symbolic “Noah’s Arc” of temporary agreement as it sails off toward next month’s challenges.

May- The only aspect Mr. Saturn will have this month is a trine to Mercury in Taurus on the 18th. The upheaval between Saturn and Mercury of the previous month seems to have stabilized for the time being, although this is probably because a rather myopic and comfort oriented Mercury in Taurus just doesn’t want to rock the boat right now.


June- Mr. Saturn has a pair of aspects this month. The first is an opposition to emotional Mercury in Cancer on the 15th and the second is an opposition to the Sun in Cancer on the 27th. While Cancer is a sign associated with nurturing and the home, it can also be quite a combative sign (like its totem the Crab) if its well being or home base is in any way threatened. With this month’s aspects we are offered a classic illustration of the differences between emotional attachment and emotional detachment. For example, where Mercury had been aggressive when it initially squared Mr. Saturn from Aries, now it is on the defensive as it opposes him from sensitive and protective Cancer.


July- This is another month where Mr. Saturn has only one aspect and it is a sextile to Venus in Virgo on the 14th. In the harsher aspects between Mr. Saturn and the Goddess of Love such as a square or an opposition, Saturn will restrict the charisma and attractiveness of Venus, however, in a more flowing aspect such as a sextile or trine the two will combine for stability and longevity although the romance usually associated with Venus can often be lost. It should also be kept in mind that in the sign of Virgo Venus is the Virgin, meaning that even thought this is a flowing aspect Saturn will still remain a restrictive and controlling influence. As a result, in this situation the relationship between these two will be more like that of a father and daughter rather than as equal partners.


August- The aspects this month begin on the 11th with a square to Venus in Libra, a more progressive and liberated sign than the Goddess of Love was in last month in Virgo. Now a suffragette rather than a virgin, Venus will have her work cut out for her as she challenges Mr. Saturn who, as previously cited, will try to restrict her like a chaperone or a father. On the 13th Saturn will enter into an extended trine with a retrograde Uranus in Taurus that will last for approximately the next month. While Saturn and Uranus are essentially opposite energies (structure and rebellion respectively) the fact that they they are each in an earth sign would serve to elevate their interaction above that of mere confrontation or rebellion to something more along the lines evolution and transformation. The last aspect Mr. Saturn will have this month is a trine to the Sun in Virgo on the 25th, likely representing a fact finding mission intent on stabilizing any advancements currently going on with futuristic Uranus.


September- After Mr. Saturn ends his retrograde period and goes direct on the 5th, the first conversation he will have this month consists of a flowing trine with pragmatic Mercury in Virgo on the 7th. The element of earth common to both of the signs these planets are transiting through should make this a productive and flowing relationship as the troubleshooting abilities of Mercury in Virgo are well suited to the stability of Saturn in Capricorn. The next aspect for Mr. Saturn is a sextile to a Femme Fatale Venus in Scorpio on the 12th. The common element between the participants here is a desire for control as we see a manipulative and desirous Feminine energy harmonizing with a dominant masculine one. Together both of these “A” types should get what they each want (at least for now). The extended trine between Saturn and Uranus retrograde that has gone on for the past month will end for the time being on the 14th. At this point we have seen the seeds for new structures officially sown, leaving it now up to time and tide to show us how these seeds may grow in the future. Mr. Saturn will aspect Mercury once again this month on the 23rd, although this time the messenger planet will be in the balanced sign of Libra. It is likely Mr. Saturn will get his way in this situation, but not without an eloquent and balanced Mercury raising some annoying (and likely true) counter points. The last aspect of the month will be a square with the Sun in Libra on the 25th. Where earlier Mr. Saturn could pull rank over the objections of pesky Mercury in Libra, the Sun in Libra would represent another matter entirely. Here the planet of structure must acknowledge some necessary compromises with an equally strong energy like the Sun if the situation is to grow and be a benefit to all who are involved.


October- We are now in the season of Scorpio and during this month Mr. Saturn will be conversing with three major planets in the sign of death and transformation. The first is Mercury on the 12th, who as a keeper of confidences and secrets in this sign, likely has some information to benefit Mr. Saturn. The second aspect will be another encounter with Venus as the Femme Fatale on the 24th, although this time she will be in retrograde and likely want to revisit the conditions of their steamy (and power driven) alliance from the previous month. The final meeting for Mr. Saturn in October will be with the Sun on the 27th. This is power brokering pure and simple and Mr. Saturn will be expected to deliver on anything he promised in good faith to the Sun in Libra last month.


November– Mr. Saturn has one aspect this month and it will be with his chief strategist,  General Mars, in the intuitive and visionary sign Pisces on the 28th. Usually known as the Planet of Structure, Saturn can also be about expansion as well. Not in a broad and dramatic fashion like Jupiter, or in an explosive way like Uranus, but slow and steady like a glacier representing the coming of a new age. Look for Mr. Saturn to reinforce his interests this month as he brainstorms with Mars and prepares for his final meeting at the end of the year with Venus dressed up as a black widow in Scorpio.


December- Mr. Saturn’s last meeting in 2018 will be with a now direct Venus in Scorpio on December 16th. Like Mr. and Mrs. Frank Underwood in House of Cards, this union of Mr. Saturn with the darker side of Venus is all about power and intrigue. This may sound ominous, but not to worry. As the year closes and we see the corrupt, old guard dug up and the seeds for a new, progressive order sown, it is important for Mr. Saturn to come to terms with this deliciously corrupt Lady in order for the transition of power to be effective. To help in understanding this interaction of Saturn with Venus, it would do well to consider the sage advice of the venerable Master Yoda when he advised the young Luke Skywalker of the practical need to “embrace his dark side.”
