Mr. Saturn’s Stars #44 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/16-7/22, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/16-7/22, 2018

 

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

I will be using a term in this weeks horoscopes that some of you may not be familiar with, it’s called the Via Combusta or “Fiery Way” and it refers to an area in the chart that runs from 15 degrees Libra to 15 degrees Scorpio. As you can probably guess from the name, this stretch of the Zodiac is considered a no man’s land of sorts, where if things could possibly break bad they likely will, especially if it involves a transit of the Moon (which just happens to be there this week). In fact, among practitioners of Horary or “Predictive” Astrology, it is generally felt that if the Moon is transiting the Via Combusta it is usually best to simply trash the whole horoscope and try casting another one after the Moon has moved on.

I hope the inclusion of this interesting little tidbit will prove to be helpful, as some of you will end up being affected by this controversial transit over the coming week.

 

Aries- With Marsretrograde in your House of Dreams squaring Uranus in your House of Earnings, don’t plan on spending any money this week that you don’t actually have in your hand, not that you won’t eventually get it (by the time Venus aligns with Jupiter over the weekend you probably will) but cash flow problems could be a distinct problem at this time. Neptune retrograde in your House of What is Hidden and Pluto retrograde in your House of Career  will likely mean something you’ve been working on for a while could get delayed, which could actually turn out to be a blessing in disguise, so try not to lose your shit, okay?  The Lunar Arc through the Via Combusta might end up testing a friendship so try to walk away if someone just isn’t getting it, it’s their problem, not yours.

 

Taurus- As the Lunar Arc moves through your Houses of Work and Relationships it will be transiting the Via Combusta, so be careful in your interactions with co-workers, especially toward the end of the week when a Scorpio Moon conjuncts Jupiter; let any catty or snarky remarks slide, you’ll be glad you did, especially as Mars retrograde in your House of Career squares up with Uranus in your sign. Getting down in the mud with someone who’s just not worth it could very well have you biting off your nose to spite your face, so be careful. With Jupiter now direct in your House of Relationships and moving into alignment with Venus in your House of Romance, the weekend could end up dealing you a lucky encounter that will make up for any other crap that may happen this week. Keep your eyes open.

 

Gemini- Have you ever heard the phrase, “don’t shit where you eat?” It speaks directly to workplace romances so try to keep it in mind before you let anything happen between you and a co-worker, especially since the Lunar Arc will be transiting the Via Combusta and that can be trouble, particularly with Uranus behind the scenes in your chart squaring Mars retrograde. Make sure not to let a minor flirtation turn into an unhealthy attraction or, God forbid, the passion for an ill-fated affair just because you may be bored and need a little excitement. Neptune transiting your House of Public Image will make anything you do that’s even a little shady look infinitely worse, so don’t even think about being a home wrecker or sneaking around anywhere; people will hate you for it and you could get hurt.

 

Cancer- All you Cancer parents out there be on your toes. The Lunar Arc transiting the Via Combusta will be going through your Houses of Home and Children, where it will first square and then sextile Pluto in your House of Relationships. This could mean that you need to start treating your grown up baby like an adult if their age indicates that it’s time they started acting like one. Or perhaps you literally do have babies, if that’s the case then you may need to start laying down some rules (and penalties) if these little ones are needing some boundaries. Jupiter is also in your House of Children and as it aligns with Neptune in your House of Philosophy you will want to be both generous and helpful to your offspring, just make sure that when Jupiter aligns with Venus in Virgo over the weekend that you have not lost the farm due to your willingness to make everyday Christmas regardless if someone’s been good or not.

 

Leo- Try to be more sensitive around family members this week as the Lunar Arc transits the Via Combusta and your Houses of Communication and Home. Mars retrograde in your House of Relationships will be squaring Uranus in your House of Career, so if your frustrated for whatever reason at work try not to bring that anger back to the hacienda if you can. Particularly since Jupiter is also in your House of Home now and when that Via Combusta Moon hits the King of the Planets some real down and dirty exchanges could result. If you can manage to keep your frustration on the down low until Venus eventually advances through your House of Self Worth and aligns with Jupiter, then the charming side of you will be all anyone sees. Until then, use the Neptune transit through your House of Transformation to put up the best glamour you can.

 

Virgo- You try to be respectful, but if anyone violates your particular sense of decency then all bets are off, so just make sure that as the Lunar Arc transits the Via Combusta and your Houses of Self Worth and Communication that you don’t end up being an unwanted policeman in someone else’s district. Uranus in your House of Philosophy squaring off with Mars retrograde in your House of Routines could have you incensed at an unexpected mishap that you feel is the result of some unfairness either on the job or at home; it’s one thing to be annoyed, but please, try not to get emotional about it as you may end up making the situation worse instead of better. As Venus moves through your sign she will eventually align with Jupiter over the weekend, therefore, if you can keep your criticisms of a person or a situation within reasonable boundaries, you could find yourself the unexpected Master of Ceremonies aboard a happy ship sailing into next week.

 

Libra- Your natural sense of fairness could be challenged this week as the Lunar Arc traverses the Via Combusta that runs between your sign and your House of Self Worth. Jupiter is also in that House of Self Worth so try to remain patient if someone without a clue tries to act like they know it all. Uranus in your House of Transformation squaring Mars retrograde in your House of Creativity could mean that the Universe has sent you this buffoon as an unwitting teacher, so try not to shoot the messenger. Instead, use Venus moving through your House of Inner Realization as a meditation on patience as she aligns with Jupiter, then let the Goddess calm the savage beast, just like the maiden closing the jaws of the lion in the Tarot Card titled “Strength.”

 

Scorpio- Are you ready for an adventure? Specifically into the dark confines of your self where all the Scorpionic Mysteries reside? A word to the wise, it ain’t going to be like Harry Potter and the Basilisk, more like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the giant squid, just sayin’. As the Lunar Arc this week goes through the Via Combusta, it will pass over your horizon (otherwise known as your Rising Sign) and emerge into the light like a piece of abstract art emerging from your subconscious. Neptune in your House of Creativity should be right in time with this, especially if it turns out you’re into the art thing. Uranus in your House of Relationships squaring Mars retrograde in your House of Foundations will probably end up making your intimate encounters about as Freudian as they can get, as a result, be prepared for partners to be a little in awe of you, as few can dazzle others with their darker sides better than the Scorpion. Some may think this mysterious part of you that’s being exposed is sexy, but that sort will be a dime a dozen. With Jupiter in your sign now, choose to gravitate toward those who can appreciate your Mystical side; they’ll be the keepers.

 

Sagittarius- Who are you really? The answer provided by the Lunar Arc passing through the Via Combusta this week will probably surprise a few folks, as that stretch of Zodiac for you goes over the cusp between the House of Groups and the House of Confinement, or the face you let the world see as opposed to the face you only reveal when the Moon is Full and it’s the Witching time. You usually wear your mask well, but with Uranus in your House of Healing and Mars retrograde in your House of Communication, you may not be able to keep the hounds locked up now if someone crosses your path at the wrong time. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth might help to keep the beast in you at bay, but maybe whatever transpires will end up being about the victim’s lesson rather than the predator’s; with that said, anyone who messes with you now deserves whatever they get. Rrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!

 

Capricorn- This will likely be a testy week for you as Mars retrograde going through the sign of Aquarius and your House of Self Worth will be approaching an explosive square with Uranus in your House of Creativity. What others may be demanding of you now could turn out to be quite annoying, especially if you really need to be taking care of your own affairs. As Venus slowly moves into a lucky sextile with Jupiter in your House of Dreams, some of the demands being made of you now could inadvertently lead to the discovery of certain untapped resources within yourself that could turn out to be quite valuable. With Pluto and Saturn currently in your sign and both of them retrograde, it is a given that deep changes will be going on for you for a while, although occasionally you may get an unexpected break (like this week) and end up ahead of where you ordinarily would have been if you weren’t inconvenienced. The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.

 

Aquarius- With Mars retrograde in your sign this is probably not the time to be pushing forward with any new projects, but don’t let anyone try to tell you that. Uranus in your House of Symbolic Foundations will provide the ants in your pants, while Saturn retrograde behind the scenes will provide the frustration, all you need now is the proper illusion and you’ll be all set to make a wonderfully stupid mistake. Jupiter in your House of Career aligning with Neptune in your House of Self Worth could fit the bill, as their particular combination of ego and fog should have you over extending yourself in truly epic ways. Mercury inconjunct Pluto will have you wanting to get to the truth, though as the Moon transits the Via Combusta across your Mid-heaven you won’t want veracity as much as you want attention, so the week will likely end with a spectacle, let’s just hope it’s not you falling off the high-wire; although Venus aligning with Jupiter will act as a safety a net, so you should be okay in the end. Whew!!!

 

Pisces- Trust could be a big issue for you now as the Moon crosses the Via Combusta, which spans your Houses of Transformation and Philosophy respectively. Jupiter will be there too and as he aligns with Neptune in your sign it’s not that you’ll be suspicious of anyone, on the contrary, if anything you’ll be too trusting and that could lead to some real problems, especially if it involves other peoples money (or lack thereof). Mars retrograde in your House of Confinement will likely have you throwing caution to the wind, and as he squares Uranus in your House of Communication whatever you overlook now out of impatience will most certainly come back to bite you on the ass in the near future. Mercury inconjuncting Pluto as it approaches its station/retrograde phase could have you listening to the wrong people, therefore, try not to let someone who wants to purchase something of yours convince you it’ll be okay if they owe you for it.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #42 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/2-7/8, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/2-7/8, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! With 5 retrograde planets now in the heavens, plus Mercury in ego driven Leo squaring Jupiter and inconjuncting Neptune, get ready for some down and dirty (and unbelievably annoying) bickering this week between Rump and the Congress over trying to railroad a Supreme Court appointment through at the expense of our rights. It reminds me of the Charles Bukowski quote, “Arguing politics is like trying to screw a cat in the ass.” God help us all!!!

 

Aries- With retrograde planets currently in your Houses of Career, Transformation, Dreams, and Confinement, you are more dependent now on circumstances and what others need to do for you than ever before and it’s driving you crazy! Just make sure you don’t go crazy! This weeks Lunar Arc will be well aligned to Uranus for its duration, which could either be a blessing that will help you find your Zen, or else it could turn out to be a glorious but devastating bonfire as you angrily burn some bridges behind you like an angry Hun. If there is a lesson for you this week it would have to be along the lines of what the Byrds were trying to communicate when they put music to the verse from the Bible that goes, “There is a time for every purpose under heaven.” Amen.

 

Taurus- You are generally a patient sign, but events this week will likely put even your inherent placidity to the test. The illusion of believing you can control what others do will come up for some major review now as well, as both Mars and Jupiter retrograde challenge Mercury as the Messenger Planet travels through the impetuous sign of Leo assuming his opinions are law, or at least unquestionable. Uranus in your sign aligning with the Lunar Arc all week will have you asking and likely answering your own questions, especially if you don’t like the answers that the people who are causing the problems are trying to pawn off on you. If there is one thing to keep in mind this week it is this;

 

God grant me the serenity

To accept the things I cannot change;

Courage to change the things I can;

And wisdom to know the difference.

 

Gemini- As a mutable air sign you can always envision the possibilities in any given situation, however, where you are often lacking is in thinking through the specifics and/or considering the feelings of those you expect to help you. With retrograde planets this week in your Houses of Career, Philosophy, Transformation, and Routines, this is not a time to be pushing the envelope no matter how many ants are in your pants making you want to dance! Mercury and Mars are opposing each other on the Leo/Aquarius axis with both in turn at harsh angles to Jupiter retrograde in humorless Scorpio, meaning don’t try to run any bullshit up the flagpole about how you’re so concerned with others welfare, everyone knows you’re trying to blow smoke up their ass and they may just decide to mess with you for spite. A word to the wise, “Tell the truth, it’s the easiest thing to remember.”

 

Cancer- If you remember the old Popeye cartoons it was usually necessary for him to first get pretty beaten up by Bluto before he would then pull out his spinach and kick some serious butt. As the Sun passes through your sign and trines Neptune in your House of Philosophy and Jupiter in your House of Creativity, the time for taking shit from people along with thinking less of yourself or your ability to change your circumstances is rapidly coming to an end. Even though there are 5 retrograde planets now, the time is nevertheless ripe for strategizing about what you need to do and who you need to be to do it. The Lunar Arc all week will be aligned nicely with Uranus first, then Mars, then Uranus again, so dare to think that you deserve that gold ring you’ve been dreaming of, you might just surprise yourself and end up getting it in the not too distant future.

 

Leo- With both Mercury and Venus in your sign you can be quite the charmer now, and along with Mars retrograde in your House of Relationships you might just be able to convince a stubborn person in your life to relax and consider trying things your way. A family responsibility may be weighing heavily on you now, so try to share what you’re feeling with a loved one. With the Sun in Cancer behind the scenes aligning with Neptune in your House of Death and Transformation, perhaps your worries for someone close are actually because of your own deep seeded fears and not because anything is really wrong. Saturn retrograde in your House of Work in harmonious aspect to Uranus in your House of Career might just result in an older person on the job taking you under their wing. This could be just the break you need!

 

Virgo- There are 5 retrograde planets now in your Houses of Work, Relationships, Creativity, and Communications, so the time is ripe to review where you are, who you’re with, where’s it going, and what needs to be fixed? The answers may not be apparent to any of these questions just yet, but they do need to be asked and you do need to be honest with yourself. Neptune retrograde aligning with Jupiter retrograde will help you to be forgiving of yourself and others if things haven’t quite worked out the way you’d hoped, just make sure you’re not blaming yourself for something that might have resulted from someone else’s lack of interest, commitment, tolerance, or whatever. The last thing the world needs is another self-critical Virgin, really! Uranus in your House of Philosophy aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity may be about either an older or younger person needing a little guidance from you. Trust that you have what they need and be generous with your time, you could make a big difference in this person’s life.

 

Libra- A Grand Trine this week between the Sun, Jupiter retrograde and Neptune retrograde in your Houses of Career, Earnings, and Work respectively would seem to be pointing to a resurrection of sorts if things have been slow. Add to this Pluto and Saturn in your House of Symbolic Foundations and Uranus in your House of Transformation and we’re talking about a lucky break, quick turnaround, or perhaps just managing to be in the right place at the right time. Whatever you’ve been working on creatively, Mercury in theatrical Leo opposing Mars retrograde in your House of Creativity could very well suggest you may be on to something that’s a lot bigger than you realize, the caveat though is that it’s not quite the right time yet to show it to the world. In the meantime, make sure to keep plugging away at it so you will be ready when opportunity does come knocking, and it will!

 

Scorpio- With Jupiter retrograde, the Sun, and Neptune retrograde forming a Grand Trine now you are probably chomping at the bit to move forward in your career, but the Universe is saying, “not so fast,” as Mars retrograde in your House of Foundations engages in a tug of war with Mercury in Leo transiting through your House of Career. Pluto retrograde in your House of Foundations could be the reason some news you’re waiting for is delayed, however, with Uranus in your House of Relationships aspecting Saturn retrograde this communication will probably come when you least expect it and could contain much better news than you had originally hoped for. As the song goes, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try, sometimes, you get what you need.”

 

Sagittarius- The Sun is transiting through your House of Transformation and forming a Grand Water Trine with both Jupiter and Neptune retrograde, which will probably find you feeling a flood of emotions as the health of a loved one could end up taking a turn for the worst. A lot could fall on your shoulders because of this with Uranus in your House of Routines aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth, just don’t try to do everything by yourself if there are other family members in the vicinity who can pitch in. In others words, if you can’t save the world then who will save you if you go down? Mercury in your House of Philosophy could have you searching for answers to a question that may be destined to remain a mystery for the time being, as Mars retrograde in your House of Communication will probably find you leaving messages for someone in power that just won’t be answered.

 

Capricorn- If you feel an unexpected pinch in a vulnerable place on your body sometime this week, it could be one of Cupid’s arrows finding its mark. The Sun in your House of Relationships is forming a Grand Water Trine with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Friends and Neptune retrograde in your House of Communication, meaning that someone close by (perhaps an associate at work?) could possibly be harboring secret feelings for you and they just might be ready to declare themselves. Uranus in your House of Romance squaring a Mercury/Mars opposition in your Houses of Intimacy and Self Worth respectively will no doubt have you feeling both flattered and embarrassed by the attentions of this new suitor, however, be careful not to let the situation gain any traction if you feel it might end up ruining another scenario that is much more valuable to you. In other words, don’t shit where you eat!

 

Aquarius- Mars retrograde in your sign opposing Mercury in Leo in your House of Relationships could see you having a serious disagreement this week, either with a loved one or a co-worker. The fact that Uranus is squaring the Mars/Mercury aspect as well as aligning with Saturn retrograde behind the scenes, could also mean that this confrontation really shouldn’t be a surprise. In fact, it’s likely based on a power struggle that has been simmering under the surface for a while. With the Sun passing through your House of Work and forming a Grand Water Trine with both Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career and Neptune retrograde in your House of Earnings, you could get quite frustrated about this situation. Just be careful that with Pluto retrograde behind the scenes igniting that Grand Trine that you don’t let the floodgates open and end up expressing all your residual anger over this particular incident at an inopportune moment. In other words, try not to kill a fly with a howitzer over this.

 

Pisces- Try not to drive yourself crazy this week with attempting to guess what an employer needs just because you’re too shy or scared to ask them. Mars retrograde behind the scenes opposing Mercury in your House of Daily Routines are both being squared by Uranus in your House of Communications, which could indicate that hesitating to speak openly with this person about something you’re not sure about could draw a worse reaction from them because your silence might make them think that you’re trying to conceal something. Don’t risk looking dishonest to avoid being embarrassed; if it’s something they should know let them realize they can trust you by telling them. On the other hand, if your boss has been increasing your responsibilities and not compensating you for your extra work, realize that the price of your embarrassment to ask for a raise will pay back important dividends by letting you know whether or not you’re working for someone you can trust.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars Special Edition; Tarot/Haiku Interlude 6/11-6/17, 2018

Mr. Saturn’s Stars Special Edition

 

For the week of 6/11-6/17, 2018

 

 Tarot/ Haiku Interlude

 Hi kids!!! This week Mrs. Saturn and I will be on vacation so there will be no Horoscopes. However, in keeping with the theme of vacationing, I decided it would be a good idea if I presented something special so that all of you out there could also have a little fun this week.

What I came up with involved pulling one Tarot Card for each sign as sort of a talisman for the week. Below is a list showing the card that was selected for each sign along with an accompanying Haiku intended as a comment/interpretation.

I hope this gets your gray matter (as well as your Spirit) going and I’ll see you all next week with the 40thinstallment of Mr. Saturn’s Stars Horoscopes.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #38 Weekly Horoscopes for 5/28-6/3, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 5/28-6/3, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Mr. Saturn has a question for you…When was the last time you looked up into the sky, not just to check if it’s going rain, but to stare into an endlessness of azure until you lose your bearings and feel engulfed by eternity? Huh? This week if the weather is nice and the sky is clear, why don’t you take a moment and try to raise the ceiling of your thoughts by looking toward the heavens; perhaps an inspiration will respond?

Now for some Horoscopes!

 

Aries- If you’re expecting news from afar, this week’s Full Moon in Sagittarius will no doubt have you waiting with great optimism. I would like to say congratulations, but not so fast. Saturn in your House of Career will be inconjunct the Sun in your House of Communications, which will likely mean delays or some additional responsibilities on your part before an important project can go through. No doubt this will be annoying and you should get plenty of help with either your depression or righteous indignation from an inconjunct between the previously mentioned Full Moon and Uranus in your House of Self Worth. On the other hand, Mercury coming around to trine Mars in your House of Dreams should help you to deal with any unforeseen challenges and also help to remind you that what you’ve earned will not be denied, but there is a process to go through. As the Byrds once sang, “There is a time to every purpose under heaven.”

 

Taurus- This week’s Full Moon will occur in your House of Transformation and oppose the Sun in your House of Self Worth, which will likely give you a burst of optimism that you’ll most definitely need. I say this because the current Full Moon axis will have some unexpected shadows to it. The first will be Saturn in your House of Philosophy inconjunct the Sun, while the second will be Uranus inconjunct the Full Moon, likely giving whatever situations you may find yourself in a frustrating “one step forward, two steps back” feel. What will no doubt save the week for you will be a Grand Trine occurring between Neptune in your House of Groups, Venus in your House of Communication, and Jupiter retrograde in your House of Partnerships. This lucky alignment should enhance your interactions with both colleagues and loved ones so that patience, understanding, and cooperation will be the dominant themes and help you to keep any obstacles or difficulties in a proper perspective.

 

Gemini- Your ability to effectively interact with some recalcitrant individuals will be highlighted this week as the Full Moon lands in your House of Relationships. Saturn in your House of Transformation will be at odds with the Sun in your sign, likely bringing to the surface some deep seeded issues about surrendering control, while the previously mentioned Full Moon will be inconjunct Uranus behind the scenes. These two aspects together are probably referring to the defense mechanisms you still exercise that are no longer appropriate to who you currently are. You are no doubt going to be challenged, but try to recognize that if you come out swinging like you have in the past then you’ve only taken the bait. A Grand Trine between Venus in your House of Self Worth, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Work, and Neptune in your Public Image area would strongly suggest that you recognize your advantages in the situation and exercise some restraint. Like an old Taoist proverb states, “Strength will bide its time, while weakness feels a need to act.”

 

Cancer- The Full Moon axis this week is between your House of Work and your House of Confinement, meaning you should give careful thought to what you believe is holding you back as opposed to how you may be holding yourself back. The Sun behind the scenes in communicative Gemini is inconjunct Saturn retrograde in your House of Relationships, suggesting that you might be having a hard time differentiating between the constructive advice someone who truly cares for you is offering and the hurtful criticism you have received in the past from either insensitive family members or abusive partners. Uranus in your House of Groups is signaling that it’s time to let your freak flag fly and stop letting the vindictiveness of ignorant people get under your skin. Likewise, the Grand Trine between Venus in your sign, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Creativity, and Neptune in your House of Philosophy is all about luck if you could just stop worrying about the things you don’t have yet and remember instead how you’ve always managed to get whatever you have truly needed.

 

Leo- Any creative aspirations you might currently be having should be given some special attention this week as the Full Moon will be in that particular area of your chart. At the same time Saturn retrograde in your House of Work will be inconjunct the Sun in your House of Dreams, which could mean that making time for something that’s important to you may be difficult right now, however, with the previously mentioned Full Moon inconjunct Uranus realize that if there’s a will there’s a way, so decide what really matters and commit yourself to it. With a Grand Trine this week of Venus behind the scenes, Jupiter at Home, and Neptune in the House of Sex, the weekend could be the perfect time for you and someone special to either get out of Dodge or hunker down at their crib or yours for some romantic research. Make sure to take your time and play with feeling….”that’s the way, uh-huh, uh-huh, I like it, uh-huh, uh-huh….”

 

Virgo- There could be some serious discussion this week about what others expect of you as opposed to what you really want to do in a certain situation. The Full Moon inconjunct Uranus in your House of Philosophy could represent a real need for you to follow a different drummer, while the Sun inconjunct Saturn in your House of Creativity will represent the extra responsibility that will fall on your shoulders if you’re really serious about making your own kind of music. If you’re absolutely sure that you have to do you, then you also need to be clear with anyone else who’ll be affected by your decision. A Grand Trine later in the week between Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune should assure you not only the cooperation of someone whose opinion you’re concerned with, but good luck in your endeavors as well.

 

Libra- The Full Moon axis this week will be between your Houses of Communication and Philosophy with respective inconjuncts to both Uranus in your House of Transformation and Saturn in your House of Foundations, meaning that you could unexpectedly find that something you’ve been laboring on quietly in your own little corner of the world could have a much broader appeal than you might have suspected. A Grand Trine between Venus in your House of Career, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Earnings, and Neptune in your House of Work and Service could represent the lucky break you need and it could come about because of something you did in the past for someone who is now in a position of much greater influence.

 

Scorpio- At the same time that this week’s Full Moon in your House of Self Worth will be inconjunct Uranus in your House of Partnerships, Saturn will also be inconjunct to a flaky Gemini Sun in your House of Legacies, meaning that you need to make damn sure you’re not taken advantage of again by an employer who tries to substitute flattery for adequate compensation. In other words, talk softly in any new work situation but also be willing to wield that big old stinger y’all got if anyone messes with yo’ cheddar. A Grand Trine of Jupiter, Venus in your House of Philosophy, and Neptune in your House of Creativity would further suggest that a possible work opportunity could turn out to be quite lucrative as your organizational skills, work ethic, and leadership by example will impress a potential boss who’s quite willing to reward someone of your caliber if they show they can stand up for exactly what they’re worth.

 

Sagittarius- With the full Moon in your sign and a Gemini Sun in your House of Relationships, the time has come to be honest with yourself about what you expect of your friends as well as the past disappointments that have come about when those expectations have not been met. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth will simply ask what you think you deserve, and based on that you’ll be able to figure out if your hopes have been too high or if the people you think of as friends are merely underachievers when it comes to respecting your feelings or valuing what you do for them. The Grand Trine occurring between Jupiter behind the scenes, Venus in your House of Transformation, and Neptune at the Foundation of your chart might generally be a good thing, but there is a danger here that your need to be liked will outweigh your desire to be respected so that you’ll likely end up with what someone else thinks you deserve regardless of what your expectations may be. How does the saying go, “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.”

 

Capricorn- Saturn retrograde in your sign in a wacky aspect to a hard to pin down Gemini Sun in your House of Work could find you either under-employed or hating your job. Meanwhile, the Full Moon behind the scenes in an equally wacky aspect to Uranus in your House of Creativity could have you deciding to either find something better or else test the boundaries of what you can get away with where you are. A Grand Trine occurring between Jupiter, Venus, and Neptune in your Houses of Hopes, Relationships, and Communication respectively could inspire you to take an emotional or creative risk, especially since Jupiter and Venus in harmonious aspect are all about luck. However, since Neptune can sometimes be about illusion, first make sure there’s water in the pool before you leap!

 

Aquarius- What are you willing to convince yourself of in order to pursue a dream? The Full Moon inconjuncting Uranus at the bottom of your chart could have you thinking unrealistically about what you believe are your superpowers, while the Sun in your House of Creativity inconjuncting Saturn behind the scenes could also have you doubting yourself. Welcome to the crystal clear, yet totally illogical world of Aquarius. Under normal circumstances the Grand Trine occurring this week could be a great thing, but since it will include Neptune in your House of Self Worth, Jupiter in your Public Image area, and Venus in your House of Work, there is a definite potential here for some really serious illusions about how you see yourself as opposed to how others view you. If you’re convinced you should take a gamble make sure to ponder an old gambler’s saying before you bet the farm, “Don’t play if you can’t afford to lose.”

 

Pisces- The symbol for your sign is that of two fishes swimming in opposite directions, which is quite apropos considering that this weeks Full Moon axis has the Moon in your House of Ambition inconjunct Uranus, while The Sun at the lowest point in your chart is inconjunct Saturn retrograde in your House of Dreams. If it’s possible to repeat a mistake you’ve made in the past you probably will. On the other hand, if it’s possible to convince yourself you’re not making the same mistake twice when you are, then you’ll probably do that instead. In other words, you haven’t thought this through at all so some obvious problems that have been staring you in the face will likely seem like a complete surprise. The saving grace here is that Neptune in your sign (which would ordinarily compound the possibility of illusion taking hold) is involved in a Grand Trine with both Jupiter and Venus, who together are almost always about luck. I don’t know how much you’ll gain here (or learn for that matter) other than simply managing to dodge a bullet that would have had anybody else’s name on it considering the circumstances.

Special Uranus Entering Taurus Edition

 

 My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.”

-Rumi

 

Hi kids!!! Are you ready for something completely unexpected? Well buckle your seat belts because Uranus is changing his Astrological base of operations this week for the first time in approximately 8 years! Let’s take a look at what that might mean for each of the 12 Zodiac Signs for the rest of the coming year.

 

An Overview of Uranus in Taurus

 It takes approximately 84 years for Uranus to travel around the entire Zodiac, meaning that it will spend roughly 7 years transiting through each sign. The last time that Uranus was in the sign of Taurus was during the period between June 7, 1934 and May 15, 1942, at which time the world witnessed the rise of fascism in Europe that eventually lead to the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939.

In looking back, the volatility of the events that occurred during the last time Uranus was in Taurus makes perfect sense when one considers that Taurus is a Fixed Earth sign usually associated with the status quo, while Uranus is a planet whose archetypal symbolism is commonly linked to resistance, rebellion, revolution, and the unexpected. In other words, Uranus entering Taurus would be a perfect example of an irresistible force meeting an immovable object. With this in mind, it can only make one shudder to contemplate the current World situation with such a volatile planet returning once again to such a complacent sign. For example, there are the ongoing tensions between Syria, Iran, and Israel in the Middle East, the chest thumping between North Korea and the U.S. involving the former country’s Nuclear Weapons Program, as well as the impending Constitutional Crisis facing us here in the U.S. as our current President and his associates face the possibility of criminal charges. And if all of that weren’t enough, there is also the situation here at home where the policies of our government seem to be driven by the exact same sort of dark xenophobia, racism, sexism, and fascism, that existed in Nazi Germany during the 1930’s when Uranus was last in Taurus.  If we like to think of ourselves as the leading country of the world, exactly where will be leading the rest of the globe once Uranus starts to work its inevitable Chaos Magick on us all?

Uranus as an Archetype

 Because Uranus predominantly represents that which is unexpected and ultimately uncontrollable, it is often hard to determine exactly how the affects of this volatile planet will be felt.

In my experience Uranus usually provides whatever is necessary to shock us out of our complacency. For instance, if you’re naturally an adventurous person Uranus may bring about disastrous results to your usual carefree actions as a way of teaching you to be more responsible (if that seems contradictory then welcome to the world of Uranus). On the other hand, if you’re an overly cautious person then Uranus may instead throw a wrench in the works that will force you to improvise in the face of unforeseen circumstances.

As an archetype Uranus represents the opposite of the control and organization usually associated with Saturn. It is therefore interesting to note that as Uranus enters the sign of Taurus it will be approaching a positive alignment with Saturn, which is currently retrograde in the sign of Capricorn. This alignment will find both of these planets in stable Earth Signs (Taurus and Capricorn) and though their aspect to one another will not be exact at this time, they will come within 1 degree of each other as Saturn approaches its station/direct period and Uranus approaches a station/retrograde. It is my opinion that during this coming summer all of us to some degree or other will see our comfort zones forcibly expanded and, as a result, both our anxiety and creativity levels will probably end up rising simultaneously. Effectively this represents the cauldron of evolution at its spiciest, so get ready for your reality to be served up piping hot, whether you like it or not.

How Will Uranus in Taurus Affect Each Sign in 2018?

 During 2018 Uranus will be in the sign of Taurus from May 15 to November 6 before it passes back into the Sign of Aries, where it will remain until March 6 of 2019. Even though it is just a few days short of 6 months, the initial transit of Uranus into Taurus in 2018 will nevertheless be a valuable harbinger of what we can look forward to as the planet of the unexpected continues its engagement with us over the next 8 years.

 

Aries- The entrance of Uranus into your House of Self Worth will signal the start of an inner revolution that could either lead you forward to maturity and success, or back into the rebellious follies of youth where your insecurities get dressed up as a disdain for things you only pretend not to care about. A lot of how this will play out will no doubt have to do with Saturn’s position in your House of Career and Public Image, which will likely present you with both the lessons and punishments of authority. How you negotiate this whole process will depend to a great extent on whether you’re looking at it from the position of an adult or a smart-ass kid: either way it’s up to you. Money could also come quite unexpectedly at this time, just make sure that you invest a decent amount of whatever windfalls may arrive rather than just spending it all like a drunken sailor.

 

Taurus- Not only will Uranus enter your sign this week but there will also be a New Moon in Taurus as well, meaning that if anybody is talking about you they’re also “Talkin’ about a Revolution” (although more along the lines of a revolution in style rather than Concord Green or The Bastille).  At first this revolution stuff might feel awkward because you really are a peaceful soul who just wants everyone to feel safe and comfortable, however, with Uranus acting like a red flag that’s meant to turn the motherly cow in you into a raging bull ready to charge ahead, you might end up scaring not only yourself but others as well. Moving to a far off place could also be a distinct possibility, which very well might be healthy in the long run as long you don’t totally abandon all caution to the wind. In other words, don’t get too carried away by the crowd yelling , “Ole’’, only to find out that they weren’t rooting for the bull but the matador and you’re stuck….ouch!

 

Gemini- Uranus will be slipping behind the scenes in your chart when it enters into Taurus, which could turn out to be either an angel or a devil whispering in your ear depending on what your anxiety level is at that particular moment. Saturn will be in your House of Transformation at the same time, meaning a review of your control and/or boundary issues will likely be going on that could put you on a real emotional roller coaster as you struggle with how to play with the other children so that everyone has fun and not just you or them. Joint finances with a partner could also become an issue, with one or both of you possibly experiencing a change of income. Remember, it’s easy to think of a Uranian shock as threatening until you see what previously unknown super powers it brings out in you. Surprise!!!

 

Cancer- When Uranus moves into Taurus it will be entering your House of Groups and Friends, which could signal both sudden endings and beginnings as some familiar people unexpectedly leave your life and new ones arrive to take their place. Saturn will also be in your House of Partnerships at this time, so even though some of these departures may leave you feeling either sad or wronged, the truth is that in order to insure your long-term positive growth all of these people who disappeared had to go in order for more beneficial individuals to enter your life. The House in your chart where Uranus will be entering during its stint in Taurus is also sometimes referred to as the House of Dreams, so realize as well that if you’re willing to let go of what no longer works in your life you could inadvertently be setting the stage for some long held fantasies to finally come true. What may have seemed familiar and comfortable in the past might actually have turned into what is blocking some real luck from finding you now.

 

Leo- If you haven’t noticed the writing on the wall yet then Uranus entering your House of Career may just have to get your ass fired or have the company you work for go out of business so that you’ll be motivated to find a better situation. I know it’s a shock, but that’s how Uranus rolls and with Saturn backing him up from your House of Work you need to understand you were not long for this situation anyway. It may have once filled a need, but now Uranus is going to show you some brand new needs you didn’t even realize you had! This is called evolution and with growth comes growing pains, so get ready to deal with something you have previously avoided like it was a disease, namely responsibility. Maybe Uranus is ripping you from your comfortable womb so that you can be born into your true destiny? After all, if you’ve failed at settling for being unsuccessful then there’s nothing for you to lose, so pay the ticket and take the ride. You’re off to see the Wizard!

 

Virgo- Jelaluddin Rumi (the author of this weeks quote for Mr. Saturn #36) was a successful scholar until he met the wandering Dervish Shams of Tabriz, whereby he had his head and heart turned around and ended up becoming perhaps the World’s greatest Mystical Poet. I tell you this because when Uranus enters Taurus it will be moving into your House of Philosophy (and aligning with Saturn in your House of Creativity) where it will perhaps do for you what Shams did for Rumi. Of course there’s a flip side to this, while Rumi left what he thought were his responsibilities behind in order to follow his new love, he nevertheless found out quickly enough that the freedom Shams was offering required him to be even more responsible because now he was harmonizing with the whole Universe and not just his own little ego and the demands of others. In other words, Uranus will be opening up your world, are you ready for the experience and, no doubt, the extra work and responsibility?

 

Libra- From where do our thoughts originate?We each experience consciousness, but what is it? Certainly our intuition and inspiration are not just from the fleshy pulp inside our heads? Uranus will be entering your House of Death and Transformation this week, so expect that whatever you thought about life leading up to this moment will not be the same afterwards. The House of Transformation represents our individual link to the regenerative energy of the Universe, a power that is also at the root of money, sex, and creativity. Therefore, have the courage to embrace whatever you feel you need to do. As long as you are honest and honor the process you have embarked upon, you and yours will manage to get whatever you need, you just won’t know how or when until you do. This could be quite harrowing, but there you have it. Uranus is a Cosmic Joker for sure, but for this part of your life he’ll be laughing with you, not at you. If you manage not to be frightened of the unknown, you could be quite successful.

 

Scorpio- As Uranus enters your House of Partnerships and aligns with Saturn in your House of Communication, expect the way you usually deal with people to be entirely transformed. Because Uranus has an uncanny way of getting in our faces, at the start of this transit it may seem as though your normal boundaries are being assaulted. At first this may surprise you, but whatever your natural reaction may be, just let it happen and then make careful note of the results. One of the things you may discover is how much you inadvertently acquiesce to the will of others (this may be especially true with family members). Uranus’s M.O. is to put us in situations where we are forced to be ourselves because nothing else will work. Of course there is also the possibility that certain relationships may end during this period, maybe even some you thought were rock solid. If that’s turns out to be the case, perhaps what you mistook for solidity was really just the other person’s inflexible expectations about who you should be regardless of how you may feel about it. In short, get ready to meet some new friends (and lovers) who will like you for who you are and not for what you can do for them.

 

Sagittarius- Uranus will be entering your House of Work so get ready for some big changes on the job front. There are so many things wrong there right now that it’s hard to say which straw will be the one that breaks the camel’s back. Saturn is in your House of Self Worth, so at the risk of stating the obvious I would probably venture to say you’re most likely not getting paid anywhere near what you’re worth. This is more than a little bit your fault, mostly because you’re overqualified for where you are and all the underachievers who surround you know that all they have to do is play stupid and you’ll fix whatever it is. Accept that the time has come to be driven from your comfort zone in the same way that babies have to be born, simply because there is no longer any space left for growth. Uranus is in good aspect to Saturn now, so make sure you are paying special attention to all the insights that are starting to flit through your head like butterflies. Once upon a time they were caterpillars just like you.

 

Capricorn- Sometimes creating something can be a leisurely affair, but more often than not our creativity ends up being stimulated by unexpected circumstances whose primary purpose is to move us along on our evolutionary path. With Uranus transiting through your House of Creativity you will likely be bombarded by, discover, and even at times trip over more ideas and insights than you can likely imagine at this point, which just means life will probably be more hectic and stimulating than you probably think you can handle. Well don’t you believe it! We only use a fraction of our consciousness in our daily life and if we can increase that by merely another fraction we’d be entering into the realm of Saints and Geniuses. Are you ready to be part of that select group? Are you ready for something completely different? As the Monty Python Boys used to say, “No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!!!” No one expects their enlightenment either until one day they realize that it’s been inside them all along.

 

Aquarius- As Uranus enters into the lowest area of your chart, (otherwise known as the House of Symbolic Foundations) get ready for your world to start spinning around like a pack of first graders playing musical chairs after being fed too much sugar. There’ll be pushing and giggling, maybe one of them will even stumble, and then it will all be fun and games until someone pokes out an eye. Of course if there’s a responsible teacher present it doesn’t have to play out that way, which is precisely the role Mr. Saturn will play as he observes through the door like the Principal passing by out in the hallway. I have used this grade school metaphor because the unexpected qualities associated with Uranus can make us all feel like children trapped in a mysterious and frightening world where no one knows what will happen next. Keep in mind though that Uranus is the ruler of your sign, so if there’s anyone who can roll with the unexpected it’s you Aquarian folk, especially since you inflict the rest of us with your natural Uranian presences as often as you can get away with it. Still, don’t be surprised by anything that may happen now, up to and including a cross country move, a complete career change, or even an unexpected divorce or marriage as Uranus stampedes through your life like a herd of cattle.

 

Pisces- We are all limited by what we think until something happens that requires us to use a new part of our brain. Some people would call this process living a creative or even a mystical life, while others might diagnose such a frame of mind as being delusional or even insane. Depending on what you believe, here comes Uranus entering into your House of Thinking and Ideas where you’re about to experience first hand what Alice felt as she tumbled down the rabbit hole. Up will be down and left will be right and things you’ve never seen before will suddenly seem eerily familiar as your true self emerges out of a mundane world of limited opinions and into a Universe of true knowledge and experience. During this time Saturn will be passing through your House of Groups and Friends, so as this strange trip continues you will discover the usefulness of your uniqueness and the practicality of your mistakes. And of course, things will just keep getting curiouser and curiouser.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #34 Weekly Horoscopes for 4/30-5/6, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 4/30-5/6, 2018

 

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

 

“There is only one plot- things are not what they seem.”

-Jim Thompson

 

“A raven’s call from

A nearby tree lingers like

A premonition”

-The Exalted Man

 

Aries- What do you want to believe? Venus in your House of Mental Activity in a harsh angle to Neptune behind the scenes will have you coming up with whatever you need to justify anything you want, however, Mercury in your sign moving into a square with Pluto might foil your best constructed fantasies by acting like a whistleblower who knows where all the bodies are buried. A Taurus Sun also aligning with Neptune would further suggest it is easier to create a solution for just about anything if you’re honest with yourself rather than trying to concoct a series of fabrications to avoid what you fear. Venus inconjunct a retrograde Saturn will probably have the last word here and it will likely be something along the lines of; “When you ain’t got nothing, you got nothing to lose, you’re invisible now, you’ve got no secrets to conceal.” So what are you worrying about?

 

Taurus- The Sun in your sign coming into alignment with Neptune in your House of Dreams could see you willing to invest a great deal into a developing project, while Venus in your House of Self Worth will likely cause you to overlook what there may be to lose in this situation. With Mercury behind the scenes in a harsh aspect to Pluto in your House of Philosophy make sure that you pursue your due diligence in this matter and be certain that what you’ve been told is the real deal. Mars in your House of Long Distance matters approaching a square to Uranus will be yelling “surprise” when you least expect it, hopefully it won’t involve having to rethink (or, God forbid re-do) anything you thought was already done and delivered, or even worse, bought and paid for.

 

Gemini- You have some great ideas now but be careful about what you’re willing to compromise to make them come true. Mercury in the sign of Aries and your House of Dreams will give you all the success you’d want, although because the Messenger Planet is also moving into a square with Pluto in your House of Transformation be sure that your soul hasn’t been surreptitiously added to the purchase price of your time and effort. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Work is also aligning with Pluto and this should guarantee rewards for your efforts, just make sure those rewards are an accurate reflection of how much you think you’re worth and not simply what someone else is willing to pay. Don’t be someone else’s deal of the century just because you’re more worried about being nice.

 

Cancer- The danger now with Neptune in your House of Philosophy squaring Venus behind the scenes is that you will doubt yourself unnecessarily in regards to your ability to weather adversity, whether it be a simple case of not getting what you want when you want it, or having to work through a situation involving some very intractable and recalcitrant people. A good rule of thumb to follow would be let folks say what they say, but know what you know. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Creativity is still aligning with Pluto as well as getting closer to Neptune everyday, meaning that it is important to realize that no matter what the circumstances, patience must always begin by first being patient with yourself. That way your destiny will always be more than your fear if you’re willing to look your fear in the eye.

 

Leo- With Venus in your House of Dreams clashing with Neptune in your House of Transformation, make sure that you’re not seeing someone for who they were rather than who they are now. For a fixed sign like yourself this could be a harsh realization, especially if this is a partnership that you’ve invested a lot of yourself in. I would like to be able to say that if you’re willing to be honest about what’s really going on they will too, but that isn’t the case. Their denial and inflexibility may shock you. Just make sure that by feeling sorry for them you’re not inadvertently enabling their agenda. They may try to devalue the unhappiness you’re feeling at their behavior by justifying their manipulations and dishonesty as necessary, but don’t let this self-absorbed whiner off the hook. See if they love you enough to admit what they’re doing and change.

 

Virgo- It’s time to examine the significant relationships in your life, both personal and professional. With Venus traveling through your House of Career in hard angle to Neptune in your House of Partnerships, be careful of trying to be all things to all people. Likewise, don’t be so willing to reveal your personal business to any inquisitive new acquaintances. The Sun in your House of Philosophy is also interacting with Neptune, as well as slowly moving into an alignment with Jupiter in your House of Communications, meaning that honest and open dialogue with any significant others will be critical at this time, especially if you need to speak up and tell a partner they are pushing you too hard or else have crossed a line. Let Saturn in your House of Creativity and Mercury in your House of Transformation help you to find the cojonesif someone you work with is ego tripping a little too much and needs to get a piece of your mind.

 

Libra- There are three major planets in the sign of Capricorn right now and they are all transiting across the bottom of your chart in what would be your House of Home and Foundations. Saturn represents the Natural Order, Mars is Action, and Pluto is Transformation, meaning it would be safe to say that you have reached a crossroads in your life where the landscape around you is spinning and all the cardinal points on the horizon have completely changed. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Self Worth is aligning with both Pluto and Mars, so you can bet any coming changes will be deep. At the same time the Sun in your House of Transformation along with Mercury moving into a square with Pluto should help to illuminate whatever depths you have been exploring for that elusive Grail of satisfaction and success.

 

Scorpio- Whether you want it or not, a leadership role could be thrust upon you now and your ability to deliver what’s necessary will end up affecting a lot more than you currently realize. Jupiter retrograde in your sign aligning with both Mars and Pluto in your House of Communications would indicate that your reticence to accept this responsibility is precisely what qualifies you to have it, meaning this can’t be about ego, it has to be about being respected, which you are! As Venus squares Neptune you may initially feel at a loss as to how you should handle this, but as a stable Taurus Sun aligns with Neptune you will come up with an idea or two that may amaze not only you, but others as well. As Mercury ends the week squaring Pluto some interesting secrets could be revealed, not the least of which will be that you are the leader this situation always needed.

 

Sagittarius-William S. Burroughs wrote in his novel, “Naked Lunch,” “Nothing is true; everything is permitted.” With this in mind, you should be aware that whatever you may want (or not) right now should be based on your beliefs and not on whatever the supposed rules may state. In other words, you can leave a bad situation and choose something better, tell a family member “no”, or improve your self in any way you see fit, simply because there is nothing that say’s you can’t if you’re willing to bear the responsibility. Mercury in the sign of Aries and your House of Creativity is chomping at the bit to get going on this, but Saturn in your House of Self Worth is saying, “Wait a minute, not so fast.” Now Saturn could be reminding you of your duties, but what if he’s really just answering an arbitrary “because” to your sincere “Why?” Perhaps you should let Jupiter behind the scenes aligning with both Pluto and Neptune inspire you to respond with a resounding “Why not!” and go for it, whatever “it” may be.

 

Capricorn- With Saturn, Mars, and Pluto all in your sign the theme for you now is discipline, direction and organization. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Dreams has been working with these energies for a while and certain ambitions you have long held as nothing more than hopes or fantasies are now

visible on the horizon as viable realities. The Sun in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune in your House of Communication will further illuminate these possibilities, as you will likely be brimming with ideas (and perhaps even visions) this week. Mercury transiting your House of Foundations is pushing you to make room in your world for all the things you are now believing are possible, while in the meantime Saturn in your sign is saying, “Everything you want is certainly doable, just make sure you’re willing to walk the walk and not just talk the talk in order to make all this stuff happen.”

 

Aquarius- I know life is hard now but an unwillingness to fully acknowledge your circumstances could mean you’re not realizing the challenges in front of you aren’t meant to be insurmountable obstacles, but rather stimulants for evolution. Mercury in Aries is not making this any easier by squaring Saturn behind the scenes and turning what could have been some real creative torque into something that instead probably feels like a frustrating uphill battle. The saving grace here though could be Jupiter retrograde as he tries to reverse engineer with Pluto and Mars a new recipe for success in your House of Career and Public Image. The Sun moving through your House of Symbolic Foundations and aligning with Neptune in your House of Self Worth is a very good omen as well, likely symbolizing that a new you is on the horizon and soon it will be time to roll away the stone and resurrect into a new life.

 

Pisces- Right now it is necessary to acknowledge the instability in your life if you sincerely want to ever get past it, even if Venus in the sign of Gemini and your House of Foundations has you feeling that you can skirt any difficult issues and Mercury in your House of Self Worth is telling you to simply hit the highway and run. Try instead to hear Saturn, Mars, and Pluto in your House of Groups as they act like a revolutionary militia to try to get you to dig in and face the music by suggesting that if criticisms have been leveled at you then either meet them head on and refute them as untrue, or else learn from what you have done and improve the situation. Jupiter retrograde in the sign of Scorpio and your House of  Philosophy is also involved here as he works along with his buddies Saturn, Mars, and Pluto to instill within you the ethics of honor and responsibility. If you are willing to listen to the deep inner wisdom of these Spiritual Warriors then you will likely find the answers to the problems that are currently plaguing you.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #33 Weekly Horoscopes for 4/23-4/29, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 4/23-4/29, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! Glad to have you back.

 

“I do not know which to prefer,

The beauty of inflections

Or the beauty of innuendoes,

The blackbird whistling

Or just after. “

-Wallace Stevens

 

Aries- This week will no doubt begin with you feeling quite impatient as Mercury in your sign enters into a square with Saturn retrograde in your House of Career. Before you indulge your frustration first ask yourself a simple question, are you annoyed because you won’t get what you want, or are you just ticked off because you’re not getting it right now? Pluto retrograde is also traveling through your House of Career, where it is conjunct with Mars and aligning with Jupiter retrograde, a further indication that while things are certainly percolating any future accomplishments are likely on a slow simmer rather than a high boil for now. The Full Moon in Scorpio over the weekend will be in your House of Legacies where it will also combine with Mr. Saturn in your House of Career, meaning you need to realize what’s meant to be yours will be yours and learning to be patient with that understanding is called “confidence.”

 

Taurus- As the Sun in your sign approaches a strong elementary alignment with Saturn retrograde in your House of Philosophy, the time is coming for you to commit to a serious course of action in either a business or romantic partnership. This is further supported by the fact that both Mars and Pluto, which are also in your House of Philosophy, are aligning with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Partnerships, meaning that the ultimate purpose of this association is for you to grow significantly beyond what you can currently accomplish on your own.As a result, don’t try to assess the possible future rewards of any commitment you make now, especially since Neptune in your House of Dreams would indicate that you really won’t know what you’ll actually need from a commitment until you make it. Think of The Fool of the Tarot as he starts the journey of the Major Arcana by walking off a cliff; only after that can he come to realize his inner Magician and Priestess. Comprende?

 

Gemini- The misconception about a tidal wave is that it happens suddenly with no advance indication, when in actuality the initial disturbance occurs deep in the ocean long before the fact and then slowly builds momentum under the surface until its force becomes overwhelming. There is a metaphor here if you look closely and it could serve to explain a change this week at work that might seem like a complete surprise when it happens. At the end of the week The Sun behind the scenes will light up a Scorpio Moon in your House of Work to reveal who has been doing what on the job as well as who hasn’t been doing shit. Leading up to that Mars and Pluto aligning with Jupiter will bring your efforts up for review, which will happen because someone who should have kept their mouth shut doesn’t and their foot (as well as yours) should fit quite nicely in their pie hole. And justice for all… Amen!!!

 

Cancer- The Sun/Full Moon axis that concludes the week will occur for you in the Houses of Creativity and Dreams. If you have been working toward something meaningful in either your personal or professional life you could see a major break through now, though not necessarily a conclusion just yet. Leading up to this Mercury in your House of Career will Square Saturn in your House of Partnerships (and open enemies) meaning someone else’s faux pas could end up opening an unexpected door for you. Next a Pluto and Mars combo aligns with Jupiter retrograde (also in your House of Creativity) so you should have no problem knowing exactly what to do with any advantage you’ve been given. By the time the Full Moon does occur it will be aligning with Saturn retrograde back in your House of Partnership and Enemies, meaning that the joke will be on whoever underestimated your capabilities. Mess with the best you die like the rest.

 

Leo- Viva La Revolucion!  Mercury in the rebellious sign of Aries and your House of Philosophy is squaring authoritarian Saturn in your House of Work…Holy Jimmy Hoffa Batman!!! You’re ready to take on the boss, the company, and anyone else who tries to peddle injustice. Pluto aligning with Jupiter would speak to this being a long suffering situation, which is undoubtedly why you’re willing to stand up. When charming Venus enters social Gemini mid-week you should be able to gain some support for your cause, just remember to keep it light, after all no one likes a righteous rant. Think of Colbert mocking Rump and you’ll have the right sort of approach to an affective revolutionary philosophy.

 

Virgo- It is said that if partners agree on everything then one of them is redundant. Mercury in Aries squaring Saturn in your House of Creativity would mean that you’re probably going to have to push for what you want in a partnership, although not like you’ve done in the past when you didn’t get your way. This time with Pluto and Mars in Capricorn aligning with Jupiter in your House of Communication it’s won’t be necessary for you to get loud (and then apologize) instead you must be absolutely committed to your vision. And it doesn’t have to be a perfect vision (the other person’s certainly isn’t) it just has to be fair and equitable for everyone involved. The Full Moon in Scorpio to end the week will be aligning with Saturn, so if you can keep your cool (Venus entering Gemini mid-week should help with that) and remember to “talk softly but carry a big stick,” y’all should be fine.

 

Libra- Even though nothing seems to be changing much, don’t let yourself fall into the mindset of “same shit, different day.” The foundations you are establishing now are being constructed from the inside out, meaning that your circumstances cannot meaningfully change until you do and if you think back to where you were 6 months ago you have changed quite a bit. So stop worrying, things will be looking different before you know it. With Saturn, Mars, and Pluto all in your House of Symbolic Foundations, Saturn squaring Mercury and the other two working positively with Jupiter retrograde, the tumblers are slowly but surely coming into alignment to unlock you from the inertia you’ve been feeling trapped in. The Sun transiting your House of Transformation should also be of help here as it lights up a Full Scorpio Moon over the weekend in your House of Self Worth.  Your stock should be rising sooner than you think and you could be feeling “Born Again,” though hopefully not in the evangelical sense….lol!!

 

Scorpio- You are very much a creature of routine so therefore you also have more than a few control issues. Mercury in your House of Daily Activities squaring Saturn this week could represent some demands being put on you that will take you out of your usual groove. Jupiter retrograde in your sign aligning with Mars and Pluto will likely see you putting the pedal to the metal to overcome any such disturbances in your well ordered universe and you will likely succeed, but at what cost? Make sure you take some time to rest and enjoy yourself no matter what’s going on, especially since there will be a Full Moon in your sign over the weekend sensuously lit up by a Taurus Sun passing through your House of Relationships. You know I’ve been teasing you recently about encountering a special someone with Neptune lingering in your House of Romance…..well……a word to the wise, just sayin’.

 

Sagittarius- Early in the week when Mercury in your House of Romance squares Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth, you may find yourself reflecting back on the one that got away, especially since at the same time Venus will enter Gemini and your House of Relationships. Take a moment to seriously ask yourself, if you could, would you really want to go back with this person? Mars and Pluto are also together in your House of Self Worth and together they are lined up with a behind the scenes Jupiter retrograde who is trying to explain that just because you remember something a certain way doesn’t mean that’s the way it really happened. You’re worried love has passed you by, but maybe that’s not the case at all. Perhaps you’ve just stopped feeling good about yourself and that’s the only thing that can keep pace with love, especially when there isn’t a lover present to remind you of your worthiness. The Scorpio Full Moon over the weekend could be a real downer if you choose to isolate yourself, so make sure you get out there and connect with people.

 

Capricorn- What do you think others expect of you? What do you expect of yourself? These are both necessary and important questions for you now, although don’t be overly concerned with what the answers should be, simply because any real answer would have to be predicated on knowing who you are to begin with and that, my “Capra” friend, is the million dollar question you need to figure out. Mercury rushing through Aries in your House of Foundations and squaring Saturn in your sign is the part of you that “has to know”, while Pluto and Mars (also in your sign) aligning with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Dreams is the effort you’re willing to make toward that end. It may just be the Sun transiting through Taurus and your House of Creativity that sets you free here, as it aligns with Saturn retrograde to help you realize that choosing to accept life is the only real answer to the question of self in a never ending Universe. Namaste (Yeah, you heard me right, I just said Namaste….hahaha).

 

Aquarius- You could be feeling torn this week as Mercury going through your House of Communications has you filled with all sorts of cool ideas and the need to share them, while at the same time Saturn behind the scenes aligning with the Sun in your House of Foundations is telling you to follow the head in front of you and stick to the rules. This could get dicey because Pluto and Mars are also behind the scenes like a pair of revolutionaries and as they align with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Public Image you might actually feel that by not pushing the envelope you might be selling out. Not to worry, rebellious Uranus should arrive to rescue you just in the nick of time as he and the Scorpio Full Moon inconjunct one another over the weekend. No doubt this quirky pair will help you to return to form and do something beautifully irrational as you “Go the distance…..” to the sound of a voice only you can hear.

 

Pisces- I hate to say this, but with Neptune in your sign for a long time to come it might be a good idea to get a very loud whistle and a very bright flashlight so people will be able to find you in the fog now engulfing you. Mercury in your House of Self Worth will have you grabbing when you should be patient and Saturn in your House of Dreams will have you waiting when you should be going after what you want. What to do? Because he is in a water sign, it would be wise for you to listen to the wise council of Jupiter retrograde as he passes along through your House of Philosophy. Perhaps his alignment with Pluto and Mars will help you to see that discretion can often be the better part of valor, meaning if you’re practical and patient you can live to fight another day when the circumstances might be more propitious (that is, when you know what you’re fighting for). Then again, the Scorpio Full Moon over the weekend could have you convinced that hula-hoops will be a thing again. Why don’t we do a test of that whistle and flashlight I suggested earlier?

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #32 Weekly Horoscopes for 4/16-4/22, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 4/16-4/22, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. Looking around now it seems like everyone I know is either going through some deep shit or knows someone who is. It reminds me of the movie “The Exorcist” when the Younger Priest say’s to the Older One, “Why the little girl?” and the Older Priest replies, “I think it’s to make us despair.” Perhaps that’s evil’s only real purpose, to make us doubt ourselves in the face of adversity so that we become convinced of our inability to ever change anything? But then again, maybe it’s up to us to keep going at all costs? After all, what do you think all those resurrection myths from all over the world like Osiris, Dionysius, Jesus, Odin, etc. are about if not to inspire us to keep searching for the best in ourselves? Ultimately we’ll never really know what we’re capable of unless we try, so let’s get busy with this week’s horoscopes.

 

Aries- With both Mercury and Uranus in your sign you’re probably feeling tenser now than usual. Especially since Mercury is about to re-enter into a restrictive square with Mr. Saturn as he goes retrograde and Uranus is on the verge of doing a gangsta thing with the Sun that will make you feel as if nobody should be able to tell you what to do. Pluto will also be slowing down this week to go station/retrograde, which will allow the planet of change to remain in a beneficial and creative alignment with Venus in your House of Self Worth for a while longer. With that in mind, if you can manage to let circumstances make you more introspect and adaptable instead of letting situations put you in a corner armed only with your insecurity, then perhaps you’ll be able to get out of this week with a few bucks in your jeans instead of with a hangover in a regrettable place. Choose wisely.

 

Taurus- As the Sun moves into your sign,try not to be overly concerned with things you don’t have and/or circumstances that have not yet come to pass. Especially since both are inherently illusions and such speculation can lead a nuts and bolts thinker like yourself straight into Worryville faster than Dorothy can tap her ruby slippers together three times. Meanwhile Jupiter retrograde in your House of Relationships opposing Venus in your sign could cause you to take on more than you should in either a romantic or business partnership. Let Pluto mediate this situation as he slows down to go station/retrograde. Maybe the planet of transformation can help you remember all those times in the past when you tried to do too much and got burned. Maybe this time will be the charm and you’ll go with the flow to a place that you’ve always dreamed about but never been…Happyville!

 

Gemini- As long as Neptune is in your House of Public Image and squaring your sign you need to be consciously paying attention to what you say and don’t assume people aren’t listening too closely. Of course the obvious problem that could arise from not being consistent in what you say is that people will think you’re a liar. Then again, you could very well be stretching the truth intentionally and with Mercury now direct in the sign of Aries and your House of Groups, you’ll probably be less likely to heed the advice I just offered because of course you’ll feel you know better. At that point enter Mr. Saturn, who will unceremoniously tell Mercury to “SHUT UP AND LISTEN!” What a fiasco, especially since the Revolution Brothers Mars and Pluto are both about to align with a retrograde Jupiter in the Machiavellian sign of Scorpio. If you could have just keep your mouth shut to begin with you might have been able to skate by all this, but nooooooooo!

 

Cancer- Before the Sun leaves Aries it will conjunct Uranus in your House of Career and Public Image, so be willing to be who you are without any apologies and you might just be surprised at how well you’re received. Mercury will also be going direct in that same House of Career, so if you’re dissatisfied with where you are professionally polish up that resume and get it out there to all possible points of opportunity. At the same time, Venus in earthy Taurus is passing through your House of Dreams and aligning with Pluto, who is about to go retrograde in your House of Relationships, meaning this could be the time to either call in a favor with a colleague who remembers you fondly, or else rekindle the romance between you and your significant other. Either way you’ve already paid for your ticket to paradise so “cash it in and we’ll leave tonight.”

 

Leo- Your job could be very eventful for you at this time with Saturn, Mars, and Pluto all on the same shift in your House of Work. Mars and Pluto are all about putting your nose to grindstone, while Saturn on the verge of going retrograde in an extended square to Mercury is about making sure others see how hard you bust your ass. Jupiter retrograde opposing Venus in your House of Career would then represent the next step of making sure you are adequately compensated for all you do, which in the past was something you always felt should be offered rather than asked for. Hopefully when the Sun passes into your House of Career at the end of the week you’ll be beyond believing such bullshit and will be ready to demand what you want and go wherever you need to go to get it.

 

Virgo- Mars and Pluto moving closer together in your House of Creativity and aligning with Venus in your House of Philosophy is the passionate exclamation of “Why not?!!!” as Mercury in your House of Shared Resources argues with Saturn, also in your House of Creativity, about your sovereignty, freedom, and responsibilities in a business or emotional relationship.  Jupiter retrograde in your House of Communication is there to remind you that being nice in the past didn’t work so maybe this time you should just do what you gotta do and let the other person feel cheated and disrespected for once. As the song goes, “It’s my life and I’ll do what I want!”……..Go ahead, be an Animal, you just might find you like it……Rrrrrrrrrr!!!

 

Libra- With Mercury in your House of Partnerships it is important for you to be reaching out this week both socially and professionally. Make it a point to reconnect with old friends as well as to explore some new work contacts. For the last few weeks Saturn, Pluto, and Mars in your House of Symbolic Foundations have been expanding your comfort zone to bungee chord proportions, while at the same time requiring you to consolidate your operational core to the size and efficiency of a two-man sniper team. Now you officially know what it’s like to be drawn and quartered. Just kidding… There is also some good news. Venus in your House of Transformation and Jupiter in your House of Earnings will be keeping their extended aspects with Pluto alive because he’s about to go retrograde, meaning that whether you realize it or not you’re already past what you’ve been worrying about because you’re on the verge of finding the solution. Keep your eyes open!

 

Scorpio- Mercury and Uranus are both in the hard charging sign of Aries as well as your House of Work, so it would probably be safe to say that being at the job now is sort of like being at the Alamo, except there’s no glory (or money) where you are. Saturn in your House of Communication is probably requiring you to listen to more crap than you’d like to from some one who currently has power over you, but take heart, Mars and Pluto in your House of Ideas are aligning nicely with Venus in your House of Relationships and Jupiter so it won’t be long before you’ll be moving on to greener pastures and will be able to tell your current slave master to take their job and shove it! I have also previously mentioned romance in your future, well, with Neptune in your House of Romance don’t bother trying to keep your eyes open so you can spot it because it will be a surprise when it happens…Hey, I bet you’re really curious now?

 

Sagittarius- Reality is not your forte at this time so be careful not to trust your compulsions or someone else’s promises all that much. Lessons are in store for you now, so don’t be that kid in class who raises their hand quickly and shouts, “I know, I know”, and then doesn’t. Mars and Pluto in your House of Self Worth aligning with Venus in your House of Work could make an opportunity on the job seem like a lucky break, but remember what I just said about reality. You bring more to the table than you give yourself credit for and if you haven’t realized that yet, well, someone else has so make sure whatever sort of deal you’re offered doesn’t make you too grateful simply because you have no idea what you’re worth.

 

Capricorn- Mercury and Uranus at the bottom of your chart are probably making you feel as if you’re caught up in the centrifugal force of a Whirling Dervish, yet with Mars, Saturn, and Pluto in your sign you’re undoubtedly weathering it as stoically as Mount Rushmore, at least that ‘s what it looks like from the outside. At the same time Neptune in your House of Thinking probably has you feeling befuddled and at a loss, although in reality you are in that idiot savant place where one can come to understand (and accept) that real creativity comes from the unknown and the unexpected, not from the known and the expected. Do you get what I’m saying? It’s only your control issues that have you feeling out of control; in reality you are going with the flow and are in harmony with your environment. Granted, you may be flying by the seat of your pants, but as the late Timothy Leary used to say, “In order to use your head you have to go out of your mind.”

 

Aquarius- This week when the Sun enters the sign of Taurus and your House of Symbolic Foundations it may finally dawn on you how strongly the fear of not having enough has been a significant motivating factor in your life. Likewise, the crowd of Capricorn Planets behind the scenes in your chart has had you so caught up with the mechanics of attaining success that you really haven’t taken the time to consider what the psychology behind your ambition is really all about. Perhaps it’s Jupiter in your House of Career that has you needing to be a star, or could it be Mercury with Uranus in your House of Communication that has you feeling the need to rebel? Me thinks it’s Neptune in your House of Self Worth that is causing you to lose sight of the forest for the trees. What would Mr. Saturn’s advice be? As a Poet once wrote, “The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom,” though I think he meant we discover what we really need by pursuing what we don’t need. But hey, you’re an Aquarius and you don’t take advice, you learn lessons the old fashioned way…….Suffer!

 

Pisces- This week when the Sun enters Taurus and your House of thinking and Saturn goes retrograde to meet it in your House of Dreams, whatever it is you have wanted as well as how to get it will slowly start to dawn on you. Of course this would have been obvious to any of the other signs at the onset of their ambitions, but since you’re a child of Neptune and your ruler is currently transiting your sign, fogginess is the meteorological norm for your mental landscape at this time. Oh well, better late than never. An extra-added bit of clarity should also come from Venus as she aligns beautifully with both Mars and Pluto, also in your House of Dreams, to help you along in your transformation from dreaming to manifestation. Of course none of this will happen over night so Mister Saturn would advise that before you jump the gun and get “Eight Miles High” about your prospects, just remember, “Signs in the street/ That say where you’re goin’/ Are somewhere/ Just being their own.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #31 Weekly Horoscopes for 4/9-4/15, 2018

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

 

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

“April is the cruelest month, breeding

Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing

Memory and desire, stirring

Dull roots with spring rain.”

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

“Impossible just

Means that your belief structure

Doesn’t have windows”

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

“I have never had

My heart broken but I have

Dropped it a few times”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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