Mr. Saturn’s Stars #55 Weekly Horoscopes for 10/1-10/7, 2018

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

 “Human kind cannot bear very much reality.”

-T.S. Eliot

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

“All around, people looking half dead

Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head”

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

”Can you see the real me preacher?

Can you see the real me doctor?

Can you see the real me mother?

Can you see the real me?”

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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.
