Special Uranus Entering Taurus Edition

 

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

-Rumi

 

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

 

An Overview of Uranus in Taurus

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

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

Uranus as an Archetype

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

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

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

How Will Uranus in Taurus Affect Each Sign in 2018?

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

“Faith is a haunted

House where we all search in the

Dark with a candle”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #14 Weekly Horoscopes 12/11-12/17, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/11-12/17, 2017

 

Hi kids!!! Mr. Saturn here. Glad to have you back! Like many of you, for better or worse I will soon be heading home for the holidays, which for me is my native sign of Capricorn; A mountaintop, a bunch of freakish half-goat, half-fish relatives to deal with… All I can say about that is…Fa la la la la…..la..la ……la…….la………..ugh.

Aries- The week will begin in a vacuum with a Libra Moon un-aspected in your House of Relationships, meaning you’re either depressed that you don’t have a relationship or else you don’t know what to do about the one you’ve got. Either way a Scorpio Moon conjunct Mars mid-week in your House of Transformation will find you feeling alone and/or alienated enough to do something you’ might regret… but don’t!!! Mercury Retrograde meeting up with Venus in Sag could bring an old friend to the rescue. You’re feeling crazy so let off some steam with someone who knows how weird being you can get.Mr. Saturn would suggest perhaps some karaoke to welcome the New Moon? “Twenty, twenty, twenty-four hours ago…..I wanna be sedated…..nuthin to do nowhere to go-oh…..I wanna be sedated.”

Taurus- This week could be a real slow burn for you. A Libra Moon with nowhere to go except where everyone else seems to want it could see you compromising yourself into utter frustration either on the job or at home. By the time the Moon gets into Scorpio mid-week and gossips with both Mars and Jupiter, you’ll be roundly chastising yourself. “How could you let them do that to you?” you’ll say to yourself, or else to your poor pet that just wants to lie next to you in peace. Uranus in your House of Secrets will make you fantasize about all the murder and mayhem you could enact upon these people in vengeance, however, by the time Mercury Retrograde and Venus meet up in bubbly Sagittarius over the weekend you’ll be ready to forget all that and go back to saying, “Namaste” to everyone. Mr. Saturn already knows what he’ll get you for Christmas….a big bottle of booze.

Gemini- With the Moon starting the week in your House of Fun (and the sign of Libra) you’ll probably feel compelled to be a man or woman for all seasons for both family and friends, but is that what you really want to do? With 5 major planets in your House of Relationships (including Mercury Retrograde) and all of them in dippy Sagittarius to boot, be careful you don’t forget how certain individuals have already shown you they are not as nice as they pretend. When the Moon enters Scorpio in your House of Routines and joins with Mars and Jupiter to aspect Pluto in your House of Death and Transformation, seize your power with these users and wield it as decisively as if you were a self-absorbed two year old….”nonononono!!!!!!” “That’ll show ‘em,” say’s Mr. Saturn.

Cancer- Having a directionless Libra Moon in your House of Foundations to start the week is making you feel so conflicted between your desires and responsibilities that if you agreed to a session with a shrink you’d probably be diagnosed as a schizophrenic. There are 5 major planets transiting through your House of Work and with all of them watching a rebellious, iconoclastic Uranus in your House of Career acting like Bart Simpson and giving them all the finger, you keep asking yourself just how much more of this you can take? When the Moon enters your House of Children to join both Mars and Jupiter as they all trine Neptune in your House of Philosophy, you’ll eventually remember who you’ve been sacrificing for all this time. Make sure you also remember that nothing in life lasts forever. As he pours you a nice glass of wine, Mr. Saturn will add, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you’ll get what you need…..oh yeah..”

Leo- You will be torn this week between freedom and responsibility. With 5 planets transiting through Sagittarius and your House of Creativity and all of them lining up with innovative, individualistic Uranus in your House of Philosophy, you’ll be wanting to write your own ticket and make up your own rules. However, Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius may be singing behind the scenes to those other Sag Planets, “Turn, turn, turn, there is a time for every purpose under heaven.” The Moon, Mars, and Jupiter in Scorpio in your House of Home will likely agree, as they demand your attention instead be focused on an intervention for a lonely friend or family member who really just needs to know someone cares.

Virgo- Imagine two soldiers standing guard on the wall of a fort. One say’s, “It’s quiet,” and the other replies, “Yeah, too quiet.” Just then an Indian’s arrow hits one of them and the air is filled with screaming war cries. A series of petty emergencies may surprise you this week, but if you and your partner pull together and delegate things properly everything should work out. All of the focus for the rest of this year will probably be at home as you have 5 major planets (including Mercury Retrograde) transiting that area. They are all in aspect to Uranus in your House of Transformation, so if you can go with the flow you just might experience some pleasant surprises. If romance has been lacking as of late between you and yours, let Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio help you get the passion back. Mr. Saturn say’s, “Rrrrrrrrrrrr…….”

Libra- Having 5 major planets in your House of Communications (including Mercury Retrograde) would make this an excellent time for you to reach out, especially to a person or professional group you may have fallen out of touch with. Because Uranus is also involved, you could end up receiving an unexpected blast from the past from either an old flame or someone who has popped into your mind again recently. With Mercury and Uranus together, there’s never any telling where these surprises may lead! Mars, the Moon, and Jupiter in your House of Earnings in aspect to Neptune in your House of Work could bring an unexpected opportunity for either some quick dough or a position that could showcase a unique talent you have. Maybe Santa actually did get your letter this year?

Scorpio- With a stellium of planets in your House of Earnings and Uranus in your House of Work, the Holidays for you are going to be busy busy busy. You may end up being exhausted but you should manage to rake in enough dough to make it well worthwhile. It won’t be all work and no play though because you also have Mars, Jupiter, and the Moon in your sign this week and they are all aligning beneficially with Neptune in your House of Romance and Fun. Even if you’re feeling frazzled take the time to attend a party and hit the egg nog. You never know, that overgrown elf lurking under the mistletoe and throwing back the brewski’s may just turn out to be your very own special Secret Santa (or secret Saturn if you’ve been REALLY good this year…..just sayin’).

Sagittarius- Having the Sun, Mercury Retrograde, Venus, Saturn, and the New Moon all in your sign aligning with Uranus in your House of Fun would indicate that the party this week is in Sag!!! With the Moon in Libra to start the week you will probably be feeling magnanimous and accommodating, however, once the Moon shifts into Scorpio and meets with Jupiter and Mars behind the scenes you might want to rethink your nice guy approach in lieu of certain individuals (okay, let’s be specific, certain family members) who might take advantage of your good nature. The Lunar Arc will finish in your sign over the weekend with a New Moon conjunct Saturn and trine Uranus, meaning that instead of letting the same jerks who have ruined your holiday in the past do it again, this time take the high ground. Mr. Saturn would suggest, “Bless the beasts and the children.” In other words, be nice to kids and pets and then either ignore your stupid relatives or find a comfy, out of the way spot to drink by yourself.

Capricorn- You’re like a floating iceberg this week in that most of what you’re thinking and feeling is concealed below the surface. This is because a stellium of planets in Sagittarius (including Mercury Retrograde) are all hiding behind the scenes and aligning with Uranus at the bottom of your chart. A kind and compassionate Jupiter/Neptune configuration between your Houses of Friends and Communication could help you avoid depression if you’re willing to seek out a friend or family member with whom you can vent a little to relieve the pressure. After all, the holidays can be frustrating if you let yourself get cornered into believing that everybody except you is happy with all this phony commercialism and advertised joy. On a more upbeat note amidst all this Christmas nonsense, Mr. Saturn will be coming to visit your sign just before Christmas Eve! Yay humbug!!!

Aquarius- Right now there are 5 major planets in your House of Dreams and they are all aligning with Uranus in your House of Communication. As a result, the illusion of choice for you now is popularity. The Lunar Arc will travel this week from Libra through Scorpio to Sagittarius or from establishing relationships to manipulating these relationships for fame and gain. “That sounds great,” you say, which may actually be the problem. Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio transiting through your House of Career and Public Image would indicate that no matter how broad your smile and no matter what promises you are making to all the people you’re asking for help, the simple fact is this is all about you. Pluto camped out behind the scenes would indicate a need to transform the notions you have about love change from adoration to humility, but then again you’d have to be able to be by yourself to deal with that, which is the scariest place in the world for you right now. The New Moon in Sag shacking up with Mr. Saturn will likely arrange for you to have your illusions for a while longer, so enjoy it while you can. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is yours:

To think your ego

Is what will conquer this life

Defines Black Magick

Pisces- A traffic jam of planets in your House of Career (including a very dissident Mercury Retrograde) are all causing you to have illusions of practicality about your former ambitious illusions. Now what could that possibly mean? Well, maybe the river you initially chose to cross wasn’t really the right one for you (which of course you wouldn’t hear at the time)? Nevertheless, changing horses now when you’re 3/4 of the way across is ridiculous, especially since you’re so close to finishing and learning whatever it is you’re supposed to. Now do you understand? Probably not, mostly due to the fact that transiting Mars in Scorpio aligning with Neptune in your sign at this time is giving you a real passion for not having a clue and being defensive about it. You think choice and responsibility are mutually exclusive just because they’re two different words, well, not to whoever is sponsoring this adventure you’ve been having….have you thought of that? When the New Moon tattles to Mr. Saturn on Sunday he may just make you aware of it.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #9 Weekly Horoscopes for 11/6-11/12, 2007

Weekly Horoscopes for 11/6-11/12, 2017

 

Hi Kids! Mr. Saturn’s glad to see you back. It’s time again to turn back the clocks, so for all you early risers out there it’s now going to be dark in the morning as well as when you get home. Not exactly “30 Days of Night,” but not very uplifting either. Make sure you order some extra Vitamin D-3 online. But hey, take heart; the Spring Equinox is only 135 days away! Doesn’t that make you feel better? Quoth the Raven, “Eh, not really.”

Aries- With Mercury entering Sagittarius to start the week you could be feeling in the mood for something exotic, which could mean either a trip to a faraway land or (more likely) a flirtation with someone who’s from a much different background than you. Either way, with Jupiter and Venus in Scorpio coming into alignment with Neptune there could be a lot more here than you realize and it could become quite habit forming. Perhaps there’s a Professional angle to this as well, in so far as you’ve become so addicted to work you’ve forgotten how to “turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream.” Mr. Saturn and Uranus will also be in exact alignment this week, so regardless if this other person makes you feel young again or a grown-up at last, remember, age is just a number.

Taurus- Early in the week a Cancer Moon will align with Jupiter, Venus, and Neptune making you about as mushy as you’ve felt in a long time. Mercury entering Sagittarius will have you wanting to verbally express this by saying “Namaste” to everyone you meet, but try to refrain from over-indulging in the rhetoric of love and instead perform some sincere and thoughtful acts of kindness for those around you. Later in the week when a Leo Moon aligns with Uranus and Mr. Saturn, expect surprises from either a family member or a roommate. Don’t hesitate to express your true feelings in this situation, regardless if that means being nice or not and depending of course on whether this person turns out to be a charming flake or just a flake.

Gemini- With the Sun transiting your House of Health this could be a good time to begin a regimen geared toward a new you. This could mean starting a detox, going to a spa, or just giving up something you know isn’t good for you. Venus and Jupiter in Scorpio aligning with Neptune in your Public Sphere and a Cancer Moon mid-week would suggest that any effort you make now to change something you don’t like about yourself could end up bringing some truly satisfying results. Mr. Saturn in your House of Relationships, along with Uranus and a Leo Moon in your House of Communications, would suggest you start to think about starting a group for a project you’ve been fantasizing about. Perhaps this could be an alternative career developing, who knows?

Cancer- The arc of the Moon this week will be an emotional rollercoaster for you, however, take heart, you’re strapped in your seat tightly so no matter how steep the drop looks you won’t fall out. By the time midweek arrives and the Moon enters Leo, Mars in your Home sector will provide all the energy necessary to battle through the frustration of renovations or a messy home project. As Mercury in Sagittarius approaches a square to Neptune, you could be required to deal with some real stupidity in the workplace. All you can do is grin and bear it and try not to let anyone see you clenching your fists in your pockets. Venus and Jupiter in your House of Romance over the weekend will be a hot couple, so let Mr. Saturn suggest an excellent wine to relax with.

Leo- With the Sun, Venus, and Jupiter all in your House of Home and Family, this would be an auspicious time to reach out to a relative who would be thrilled to hear from you. Mercury in your House of Creativity working with Mars in Libra would suggest that you could inadvertently have the solution for a difficulty they’re going through. Try not to procrastinate too much before reconnecting with them though, or something could happen and you’ll feel guilty for not having helped. With Pluto lingering in your House of Health you should be careful about neglecting any sort of physical discomfort you may be experiencing. Now might be the time to go for that check-up you’ve been putting off. Expertly brandishing his stethoscope, Mr. Saturn say’s, “turn your head and cough.”

Virgo- When the Moon enters Cancer early in the week and squares Mars in your House of Earned Income, you will be feeling like you need more out of life. At the same time Jupiter and Venus together in Scorpio working with Neptune could bring you an unexpected opportunity through a partner or relative. As Mercury in Sagittarius approaches a square to Neptune make sure to ask some practical questions about any situations you’re presented with. This person may mean well, but make sure you know what you’re getting into. When Uranus, the planetary archetype of surprises and accidents aspects cynical Mr. Saturn, he will feel compelled to remind you, “If a situation seems too good to be true, it probably is.”

Libra- With Mars in your sign, Mercury in your House of Communication, and a Cancer Moon passing through your House of Career, you will be feeling more concerned about your public image than ever before. Especially since you’re wondering why some very good work you’ve been doing as of late has ended up going unnoticed. With this in mind, Mr. Saturn in your House of Writing and Uranus in your House of Partnerships may be trying to tell you to start targeting a different audience if your current milieu isn’t supporting you. Meanwhile, Venus and Jupiter in your House of Earnings could bring an opportunity for some easy cash from an unexpected source. As Mr. Saturn would say, “It’s money they have and peace they don’t,” so if you can truly make someone feel better (and you can) then that is certainly worth whatever they think it is.

Scorpio- There are snakes that possess the ability to hypnotize their prey before killing them, which is exactly the kind of charm you have right now with both Venus and Jupiter approaching a conjunction in your sign. As Mercury in your House of Earnings is fueled by Mars from behind the scenes, opportunities should be in abundance for you this week as well, although the trick to capitalizing on these situations might have more to do with what you’re willing to give up than with what you desire. This is not a moral dilemma, but a matter of enlightenment. With that in mind, Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

“Good or Evil? The

Speed of Darkness is equal

To the Speed of Light”

Sagittarius- Mercury entering your sign should bring on a very busy week for you, especially with Mars in your House of Groups making it seem as if everyone needs your help. The arc of the Moon this week will begin in your House of Shared Resources, at which point it will trine a Venus/Jupiter conjunction as well as Neptune in your Home Area. You have a kind and compassionate heart and this aspect will accentuate it even more, meaning you could very well be taken advantage of yet again by a whiner or a bully. Late in the week when the Moon pulls into Leo and aspects Mars, you may finally find the chutzpah to tell these users off. As inspiration to prepare for standing up to these jerks, Mr. Saturn would suggest checking out the film “Network,” particularly the part where the character of Howard Beale losses his sh*t on the air…. “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it anymore!”

Capricorn- It is said, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” A loose Grand Trine involving The Moon in Cancer, Venus and Jupiter in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces in the Houses governing your Relationships, Groups, and Communication, would speak to you meeting some sort of karmic partner this week either in a class or gathering of some sort. Mars in Libra in your Public Sector working with Mercury in Sagittarius behind the scenes could further indicate that you might meet this individual somewhere you didn’t actually plan on being. Oh, one other thing, there’s also a possibility this person could mysteriously annoy you for some reason. Mr. Saturn would add with a wink, “you might prefer the devil you know, but you’ll only learn from the devil you don’t know.”

Aquarius- With Jupiter and Venus in your House of Career and Public Image smoothly aligning in the element of water with Neptune and a Cancer Moon, your vulnerability should be at an all time high this week. The question is, can you handle that? You are often annoyed when others get emotional, but maybe now that the shoe is on your foot you’ll finally understand the compassion of Buddha? Or maybe Uranus in your House of Communication lining up with Mr. Saturn in your Public Sphere will make you think your usual detachment will be more efficient? The determinant here may be Pluto renovating your Mystical House, for he will not be denied his mission of deep transformation. Perhaps then you should leave being cool to the Eskimos? Mr. Saturn suggests letting go of your whole control thing and instead allow your self be handcuffed to that proverbial bedpost of trust. Maybe you’ll have a whole “Rocky Horror Picture Show” thing go on and love it!

Pisces- Neptune is your ruling planet, so you’d think having it return home to Pisces after 165 years would be a good thing? When it comes to Neptune though there’s really no telling, so maybe now you can understand how the Ancients must have felt when they looked out at the ocean and tried to imagine what was beyond the horizon? Nevertheless, with Venus and Jupiter this week in your sister water sign of Scorpio you could be quite convinced you know exactly what’s out there. Yet as Mercury rolls through your Public House you will face the same dilemma as everyone else who has ever been convinced by their dreams and/or opinions, namely how to turn whatever it is you believe into a real thing? As the Moon finishes up in Virgo over the weekend those convictions of yours could end up turning into a hangover after all that Sufi Wine you’ve been imbibing. I can almost hear Mr. Saturn snickering already, “who do you think you are, Rumi?

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #7 Horoscopes for 10/23-10/29, 2017

Hi kids!!! Welcome once again to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. We are now officially in the Witching Season as the Sun enters Scorpio, so rake those leaves, carve those pumpkins, and remember, the trick is to treat your self.

“One can’t learn much and also be comfortable. One can’t learn much and let anybody else be comfortable.”   -Charles Fort

 

Aries- The week begins with the Sun entering Scorpio to join Jupiter, while Mars arrives in Libra to join Venus. As a result, your passions will probably be smoldering for a certain someone like the charcoal in a BBQ pit. In the meantime, Mr. Saturn will be hovering like Harvey Weinstein over the Moon in Sagittarius, so be careful you don’t do something with this special person just because you can. Mercury in Scorpio and Pluto in your House of Career will be advising you to check and make sure if Mr. or Ms. Sexy is really available, or, if you met this person through business these planets might serenade you with a chorus of “Don’t (blah)where you eat;” either way I suggest you listen. Mercury will also be in aspect to Neptune in your House of What’s Hidden, making it easy for you to believe no one is noticing how your libido is up. Stop kidding yourself. Everybody notices, but so what? Just be careful.

Taurus- Your attitude toward life is changing, are you willing to change as well? Anger about betrayals and disappointments from the past has been sabotaging you and you’re beginning to realize this every time you look in the mirror. You have unwittingly let the dark memories you have of certain people turn into darkness for yourself. With Venus and Mars in your House of Health and Routines it’s time for you to get off the couch and rediscover the youth you have left. With a little effort you can regain the enthusiasm and creativity that once made you so magnetic. With Uranus in your House of Confinement working with Mr. Saturn in your House of Legacies, you need to find a creative outlet! When the Moon crosses your Mid-heaven over the weekend be sure you make time for something you once loved to do. It doesn’t matter where this activity may lead, it only matters that you are allowing yourself to have fun again. Even Mr. Saturn is willing to sing along!

Gemini- Every relationship we enter into goes through stages. What makes an old friend or a long time partner so important is that our connections with them become the living proof that love can survive. With Venus and Mars in your House of Romance squaring Pluto, you’re finding yourself struggling with believing that love has already found you and it’s not going anywhere. On the work front you need to stop letting someone else’s agenda cramp your style. You have the ideas, the energy, but most of all the respect of those in control. If a younger person is causing you any difficulties don’t buy into their attempts at emotional manipulation; keep your cool!

Cancer- The way you relate to others has been changing for a while, but it’s only just now that you’re fully realizing it. Rather than continuing to take responsibility for other people’s emotions, you’re instead doing what you can and then letting it go. At first you felt guilty about this, but now you understand what Mr. Saturn has been trying to tell you all along, namely that “doing something for someone else they should be doing for themselves ultimately denies them a better lesson.” Amen. Now that you realize you have all this newly freed up emotional disc space, you’re also discovering you have a lot more creative energy. So what are you waiting for? Start investing more time in your heart’s desire and see what the Universe rewards you with! This week’s Haiku is for you.

“If I seek knowledge

Perhaps it’s there, if it finds

Me the truth is here”

Leo- With Jupiter and Mercury in your House of Foundations angling Pluto, as well as Venus and Mars in your House of Communication squaring Pluto, the boundaries you have established between yourself and others will seem more apparent now than ever before. There is a wall up, but it’s not because you’re insensitive, in fact, it’s just the opposite, as you are far more sensitive than most people realize. Of course this makes you a favorite with kids and dogs, so why don’t you try to open up a little and perhaps volunteer at a youth center or an animal shelter? Unlike Jack Nicholson in “As Good As It Gets,” you won’t need any bacon in your pocket to be the one that everyone wants to go home with. Even Mr. Saturn is saying, Awwww…<3

Virgo- As Venus and Mars transit your House of Earned Income and square Pluto in your House of Fun and Creativity, you might be feeling the need to break out for a little enjoyment and howl at the moon. Of course the frugal part of you will automatically come up with reasons not to, but look at it this way, money is for spending and with Venus and Mars where they are you’re earning more than you need, so why not splurge? The Sun and Jupiter working with Neptune in your House of Relationships may also have you feeling more amorous than usual, so why not take that special someone along with you to go out and howl at the moon? Mr. Saturn say’s, “Aaaah Oooooh, Werewolves of London, Aaaaah Ooooooh!”

Libra- Pluto at the bottom of your chart is squaring both Venus and Mars in your sign as well as nudging Mercury and Jupiter in your House of Self Worth, which all together should have you thoroughly stoked up to show the world exactly what you got. Saturn in the House of Communication and Uranus in your partnership area would indicate an opportunity based on someone reaching out to you unexpectedly, or perhaps you’ll receive a response to a shot in the dark you took a while ago and just forgot about? The arc of the Moon during the week will have you ready to take some specific steps toward transforming your current circumstances and opening up some new creative and professional possibilities. With a cool and confident air, Mr. Saturn would simply say, “If not now, when? If not here, where?”

Scorpio- With Mercury in your sign aligning with both Pluto in the House of Communication and Neptune in the House of Creativity, you are on the verge of a true awakening. Mr. Saturn and Uranus are further supporting this epiphany as they act respectively in your chart like the driver and the sphinxes in the Chariot Card of the Tarot, causing you to come to the revolutionary realization that luck is who you are, not what you do. This is nothing short of a true moment of enlightenment as Venus and Mars dance in celebration together like Yin and Yang in your House of Hidden Secrets and Mystical Union. Enjoy this while it lasts, for sooner or later Mr. Saturn will turn on the lights and start singing, “Closing time, every new beginning comes from some other beginnings end.”

Sagittarius- You’re feeling it, so why aren’t you doing it? Jupiter and Mercury in your House of the Subconscious and Pluto in your House of Self Worth have become an itch you must scratch. Add to that Neptune in your House of Foundations and you’ll discover that you have stumbled upon one of those rare moments in life when you can see into the workings of your mind and clearly realize that guilt is a useless emotion, so why bother? Venus and Mars together in your House of Dreams are opposing Uranus in your creative sphere, egging you on like the Prince song “Let’s Go Crazy” at maximum volume. At a moment like this Mr. Saturn would usually tell you to turn it down, but instead he’s saying, “Forget that shrink in Beverly Hills, you know, Dr. Everything’ll be Alright”…. “It’s up to you to make it alright so what are you waiting for!”

Capricorn- Most of the major planets are in the public half of your chart so it’s important for you to be out there and interacting with others. Venus and Mars in your House of Career will provide the eloquence and Mercury and Jupiter in your House of Groups will provide the substance, so share your interest and excitement involving the things that matter to you. What’s hidden in the private half of your chart this week will be the Moon, Neptune, and Uranus, so try not to be derailed by your anxieties, instead use them as examples to help you connect with those who can benefit from your honesty and compassion. Mr. Saturn say’s, “don’t be a rump, offer those condolences and give something of yourself.”

Aquarius- With Saturn and the Moon in your House of Groups aligning with Uranus in your House of Communication early in the week, you could find yourself having to deliver a lecture or perform in front of an audience. If that’s the case, stick to the script and save your proselytizing for another time. Mercury and Jupiter in your House of Career aligning with Neptune, plus Pluto behind the scenes with the Moon mid-week, could cause you to make a Freudian slip you might need a stuntman for, so be careful. As a word of advice, Mr. Saturn would like to quote from one of his favorite TV shows, “Just the facts, Ma’am, just the facts.”

Pisces- If you are on the verge of making an important decision it would be good to seek some advice this week, just be sure you’re prepared to listen and seriously consider what a more experienced person has to say, even if it disagrees with what you have convinced yourself of. Especially since Saturn in your House of Career working with Uranus in Aries has you struggling with nailing down a definite plan right now. In addition, Jupiter and Mercury together in Scorpio aligning with Pluto probably has you believing that you know everything, though if that’s the case then you can’t possibly learn anything else without it resulting in you being up the creek without a paddle. Of course Mr. Saturn is willing to let you find out the hard way, and as the song goes, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try, sometimes, you get what you need.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #6 Horoscopes for 10/16-10/22, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/16-10/22, 2017

 Hi Kids!!! Welcome to the newest edition of Mr. Saturn’s Stars.

“Doubt is a good servant but a bad master; a perfect mistress, but a nagging wife.”       -Aleister Crowley

“Always look on the bright side of Life.”   -Monty Python

Aries- This could be a week of revelations for you, beginning with the Moon conjunct Venus in your House of Relationships making you feel surprisingly less attached to your general dislike of humanity. You’d prefer to chalk this up to a good mood, but when the Moon conjuncts Mercury and Jupiter in Scorpio and then they all trine Neptune in your House of Mysticism, cue the Twilight Zone theme and prepare for a Fortean rain of frogs as something quite powerful emerges from the depths of your psyche and you feel more vulnerable than ever before, kind of like Dorothy being scolded by the great and munificent Oz. Of course when Toto pulls back the curtain it’ll just be good ol’ Mr. Saturn ready to explain a new perspective on life from your House of Philosophy.

Taurus- You can speculate as much as you want about a situation you need to take care of this week, just don’t be blind to what’s actually going on in front of you because you might regret it later. The Moon and Venus in Libra to start the week will have you looking through rose tinted glasses, yet when the New Moon in Libra opposite Uranus occurs shortly thereafter try to stay calm if your well laid plans seem to be unraveling. With a stellium of planets in Scorpio in your House of Relationships and Neptune in your House of Groups, you could negotiate what seems to be a reasonable solution to your problem; just make sure it won’t be a slippery slope for you later. By way of advice Mr. Saturn would like to quote some wise words by by the late Malcolm X, namely, “Make it plain.”

Gemini- Venus and the Moon beginning the week in your House of Romance may have you feeling quite amorous, but for the time being all your energy is going to be needed for work. A new direction is being implemented on the job (perhaps a power play by one of your bosses) and you may be the person who will be made responsible for making it happen. A New Moon in your House of Creativity say’s you’ll work out the logistics and manage not to have too many people annoyed with you in the process. The last vestiges of a Mars/Saturn square in your House of Home and House of Relationships may find you bringing your frustrations home after having to be the ambassador of good vibes at work. Mr. Saturn say’s, “just shut up and let your partner pour the wine and tell you about their day.”

Cancer- With Venus and the Moon in Libra at the beginning of the week, you may be called upon either at work or by your family to be a peacemaker between opposing factions, neither of which you particularly agree with. Of course this will seem ridiculous and maybe even annoy you, but with Jupiter and Mercury in your House of Creativity in trine to Neptune, you do have the skills and you’re the nicest one of the bunch, so try to look at this diplomatic assignment as a compliment of sorts. The New Moon opposite Uranus along with Saturn in your House of Maintenance and Repair should help you get through this dilemma with flying colors and possibly even move your own status up a notch to boot! Mr. Saturn has got his eye on you and he’s liking what he see’s.

Leo- Mr. Saturn in your House of Creativity is a stabilizing influence now for a lot of new ideas that are finally emerging inside of you. With a New Moon in your House of Communication, you will no doubt be out there feeling optimistic and throwing around some of that Leo charm. Jupiter transiting through your House of Foundations along with Mercury and the Moon over the weekend will have you thinking a lot about home and family, and with Neptune in your house of Legacies you might start rethinking some long standing beliefs you’ve had about your upbringing. We don’t get to choose our family, but we do get to choose who we want to be. You’ve been righteous about this point for a long time, but have you realized that no one ever really stopped you from doing what you want?

Virgo- With Mars in your sign and Mr. Saturn in your House of Foundations, lately you’ve been feeling like you’re driving a car with the brake on. A New Moon in your House of Self Worth in the middle of the week should help you to finally decide something needs to change, especially now that Jupiter has entered Scorpio and its transit through your House of communications will make it very difficult for you to sit still and stay quiet for much longer if something is really bothering you. With Mercury and the Moon also in Scorpio late in the week and over the weekend, make sure you consider your words carefully before speaking, it would be much more constructive to intelligently express your frustrations instead of just venting.

Libra- Mars in Virgo transiting behind the scenes in your chart has been causing you a lot of frustration. You’re working really hard and sincerely feel you’re ready to move ahead, yet everything seems stuck. Mr. Saturn in your House of Communication keeps saying, “Be patient,” yet that’s driving you nuts. With Venus in your sign now you don’t want to seem like a complainer, so instead you remain quiet and continue plugging along. A Libra New Moon opposite Uranus should help you realize you can’t pretend to be patient. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth now would indicate that things will eventually get moving, the trick is to keep your sh*t together until they do. In the meantime, try to understand that Mr. Saturn reminding you to breathe is not supposed to make you hyperventilate. This week’s haiku is for you.

“Patiently waiting

Like a dewdrop hanging on

A banana leaf “

Scorpio- As Jupiter and Mercury enter your sign followed by a New Moon opposite Uranus to start the week, the time has come for you to speak your truth. The final passing of a previous square between Mars and Mr. Saturn will help to eliminate any elements of self-doubt, while at the same time the arc of the Moon this week passing through your House of Secrets will serve to make you more contemplative than usual. This is a good thing as Pluto and Neptune in your Communication and Creativity areas will inspire the necessary confidence for you to speak softly, yet firmly and compellingly about what you truly need from a situation or an individual.

Sagittarius- If you have ever thought about seeing a Psychotherapist (or returning to one) this week is the time. Mercury will join Jupiter in Scorpio at the beginning of the week and will remain in your House of The Inner Self for approximately the next 3 weeks. These two planets are about communication and guidance and when combined with Neptune in your House of Foundations would point to this as being the perfect time to start digging through the fears and frustrations you need to let go of. The Sun will also enter Scorpio at the end of the week (if you live on the West Coast) and serve to reinforce this cleaning out the basement theme. Venus transiting your House of Hopes at this time would further ensure help coming if you’re willing to help yourself. “A word to the wise,” mutters Mr. Saturn.

Capricorn- The arc of the Moon this week will pass through your Houses of Philosophy, Career, and Groups. Has it crossed your mind lately to teach a class in the near future either locally or long distance? With Jupiter and Mercury conjunct in Scorpio in your House of Groups and Venus in your House of Career you will no doubt be quite a charismatic source of whatever topic you’re well versed in, which will no doubt be some very serious information. Combine all this with the fact that Mars is crossing your Mid-heaven and the stage is set for you to put yourself out there. At the risk of sounding New Agey, Mr. Saturn would say, “When the student is ready the teacher appears…. So, what are you waiting for? Make your entrance!”

Aquarius- With Jupiter, Mercury, and the Moon all passing through your House of Career this week (and the Sun arriving at the beginning of next week) you definitely think you’re ready for the big time, but then again there’s Neptune in your House of Self Worth creating that comfort zone you have. So, are you walking the walk, or just talking the talk? With Saturn in your House of Groups you may have been spending a lot of time as of late being a nurse maid to a bunch that is draining your energy (but making you feel important). Venus in your House of Travel and Philosophy could raise the possibility of a   trip (inner or outer), but can you leave the need for approval behind? Mr. Saturn suggests you move around a bit to make sure you haven’t become rooted and stuck without realizing it.

Pisces- Who are you? You know what others expect, but has their approval made you feel any less confused when you’re alone? Do you even still want the same things anymore? With Neptune in your sign you must consider that everything you have believed until now could be an illusion. That might sound depressing, but it will ground you back within yourself and that’s where the truth is. Mars in your House of Relationships arguing with Mr. Saturn has been causing you to feel pressured by what others are expecting of you, thus the New Moon opposite Uranus at the beginning of the week will have you feeling either rebellious or panicked. Jupiter, Mercury, and the Moon in your House of Philosophy later in the week will encourage you to go deep within to ask some really basic questions. If this seems to daunting to do alone, ask for help. Venus in your House of Shared Resources will be there with the support you need.

Jupiter Leaves Libra and Enters Scorpio on 10/10/2017

After transiting through the sign of Libra for the last 13 months, Jupiter will enter the sign of Scorpio for the first time in approximately 12 years on October 10, 2017 at 9:20 a.m. EST.

Part I

 What is a Jupiter Return?/Review of Jupiter in Libra/ Jupiter in Scorpio and the USA for the Remainder of 2017

 It usually takes Jupiter approximately one year to transit through a sign of the zodiac, therefore every 12 years or so each sign will have what is known as it’s Jupiter Return. Before today, the last time that Jupiter was in Scorpio was November 24, 2006. During that period it was conjunct with Mars in Scorpio and square to Saturn in Leo. Two notable events that occurred then which are relevant today are the launching of WikiLeaks by Internet activist Julian Assange and North Korea testing its first nuclear device.

The sign of Scorpio is commonly associated with both secrecy and power. The significance of this in relation to Jupiter entering this sign can be better understood if one connects the dots between the previously mentioned events of 12 years ago and what the parties involved  are currently up to. Specifically one can look at how how the recent U.S. Presidential Election was undermined by WikiLeaks releasing Hilary Clinton’s emails, as well as how the current battle going on between Donald Trump and North Korea reveals the darker motivations behind that country’s initial nuclear experiments.

Before beginning to look at Jupiter’s recent move into Scorpio, I would first like to take a few moments to review the passage of Jupiter through Libra in order to better understand how the stage has been set for this current cycle.

In Astrology, the planet Jupiter is considered the archetype of nobility, leadership, philosophy, and courage, while Libra is the sign that symbolizes balance, relationships, and justice. When looking back over the period that Jupiter was in Libra, the influence of these two energies can be clearly seen in the rise of interest and subsequent debates involving humanitarian issues such as Racism, Universal Health Care, and Economic Equality. When interpreting a transit though it should be kept in mind that each Astrological Symbol can be viewed in either a positive or negative way depending on the situation. For example, when reconsidering the past 13 months, even though the nobility and balance of Jupiter and Libra were reflected in the issues being discussed, there were many people during that time who were passionately arguing the opposite side of these issues as well.

It might be fair to say then that perhaps the most important characteristic of the Jupiter/Libra transit was not that idealism would prevail, but that more people than ever before would be motivated to participate in the process of trying to build a positive future for our society. While this increased activism is both a welcome and important trend, it should also be realized that it was not something that came about in a vacuum, rather it represented a frightened and angry reaction by many Americans to a badly broken Democratic System where greedy and even potentially treasonous agendas have seriously threatened the rights and safety of every man, woman, and child. One does not need to look very far to see that the willingness of the Jupiter in Libra energy to confront controversial issues has made our current situation one of the most politically turbulent periods in American history, a time characterized by striking polarities of positive and negative ideas and events.

So what comes next? As the planet named after the King of the Gods enters Scorpio in early October, its modus operandi will change quite noticeably from idealism to power (refer back to the earlier examples that were given of the birth of WikiLeaks and North Korea’s Nuclear Tests). Where Jupiter in Libra seemed to oscillate back and forth between authority and resistance, the contrasts of Jupiter in Scorpio will go back and forth in a much darker environment. Here in the sign that rules death and transformation the battle for control will go on between a Dark Machiavellian Order hell-bent on total domination and Crusading Investigators trying to reveal the corruption that hides within the halls of our Democracy. Remember how you felt over the last several years watching the Netflix series “House of Cards” and thinking to yourself, “OMG, is this the way it really is behind the scenes in our government?” As Special Independent Investigator Mueller’s search into the Trump campaign’s possible collusion with Russian operatives intensifies, expect to see the truth become a lot stranger and more dramatic than fiction could ever be!

Once it enters Scorpio, Jupiter will begin its movement through the remainder of 2017 by engaging in a succession of conjunctions in that sign, beginning with Mercury, followed by The Sun, and concluding with Venus. As a result, expect even more cat and mouse games in Washington around the Russia issue as the Hunter (Special Investigator Mueller) tries to track down his prey (the herd in the White House), only to discover how that prey was initially stalked by a pack of Wolves (Putin) who are now trying try to turn the situation around and transform the hunter into the hunted. The White House may think it can get away with Executive immunity or pardons to undermine the Mueller Investigation, but I think not. I also believe any attempts to fire the Special Investigator will also backfire quite badly for the current administration.

At the very end of the year during the period of December 3rd through the 6th, a Jupiter trine to Neptune will occur simultaneously with a Full Moon in Gemini, followed just days later by a Mercury station-retrograde in conjunction with Saturn. At this point we will all feel like we’re falling down the rabbit hole as illusion, gullibility, righteousness, mendacity, and truth all shout at one another across the airwaves and through social media as this whole circus moves inexorably toward an epic confrontation in January 2018. It will all begin with a deadly Jupiter/ Mars conjunction in Scorpio that will fuel a practical and transformational Venus/Pluto conjunction in rigid, no nonsense Capricorn, just as that sign welcomes back it’s own ruling despot, Saturn, after a 29 year absence. Expect subpoenas and indictments to rain down, followed shortly thereafter by resignations and deals to testify in exchange for reduced sentences and/or immunity. I suspect however that few who are guilty will be spared, simply because the future of our Democracy will depend on the adequate punishment of these traitors.

As Thomas Paine wrote in his “American Crisis;” ”These are the times that try men’s souls.” Or in the words of the late Bette Davis, “Buckle your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.”

Part II

 How Jupiter will affect the signs individually for the remainder of 2017

 Aries- As Jupiter moves through your House of Death and Transformation it is important to try and establish control over your income and shared resources. Career possibilities loom large and you’ll need maximum mobility and solvency to take advantage of any opportunities.

Taurus- Stability is what every Taurus dreams of, but at what price? Are your current relationships in balance? A true partnership is when you get as good as you give, so make sure what’s going around is actually coming around.

Gemini- Are you fulfilling your daily responsibilities? If you wish to be in control of your work environment then fully embrace what is expected of you. Trying to compromise your way through obstacles or avoid them altogether may well blow up in your face, so be careful.

Cancer- What do you want and what are you willing to do to get it? Jupiter going through your House of Creativity will fire your imagination but are you willing to follow your inspiration? If those around you are requiring all your energy maybe you need to reclaim some of it back, not only for your dreams but for your sanity as well.

Leo- If you’re wondering where your life is headed then begin by looking at where you are. Do you have a firm foundation upon which to build those dreams you have? Maybe it’s time now to consider investing in that home you’ve always wanted for you and yours?

Virgo- You will never make any more than you think you’re worth so maybe it’s time now to formulate a new philosophy and speak up for what you deserve. You’re not one to cut corners, but haven’t you been in the same place for a while now? Start thinking bigger!

Libra- You’ve been having visions of a better way for awhile and with Jupiter going through your House of Earnings the time has come for you to move forward with those plans you’ve been working on. Projects you start during this period could gain the kind of traction that can bring long-term success.

Scorpio- You like to play yours cards close to your vest, but maybe now is the time to gamble and stop trying to always be in control? Perhaps opening up will make you seem even stronger and more of a leader than others realize? Or, more importantly, maybe more than you have realized?

Sagittarius-Jupiter going through your House of Secrets may be more about what you discover about yourself rather than what you fear others may find out about you. What a surprise when you realize that your worst enemy has always been looking at you from the mirror.

Capricorn- You’re really feeling your oats right now and are completely convinced nothing can stop you….but not so fast! You’ll attract more support at this point from your colleagues if you’re willing to compromise a little; after all, you’re powerful enough to be magnanimous, right?

Aquarius- If you’re feeling like you’ve missed the boat maybe it’s because you belong where you are? That may be a hard pill to swallow, but you can turn things around now if you’re willing to be honest with yourself and engage in some real soul searching rather than blaming circumstances or other people.

Pisces- With Jupiter in your House of Philosophy and Neptune in your House of Ego, the danger now is that you see things the way you want to rather than the way they actually are. This may lead to some conflicts but these are necessary for you to evolve and discover who and what you really are.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #5 Horoscopes for 10/9-10/15, 2017

Horoscopes for 10/9 – 10/15, 2017

 Hi kids!!! Mr. Saturn is talking to you this week from the belly of the beast-the Queens County Civil Court in Jamaica, Queens. Surprisingly enough, this is one of the only places where Mr. Saturn is less than himself, though you’d think he would love a good Court House or Jail, right? Actually the reason he’s in court is because he was called for jury duty. Even Mr. Saturn has rules to follow.

Aries- You will probably be feeling a bit unsettled this week. A situation is changing with an important person in your life and with the Sun and Mercury in your House of Partnerships squaring Pluto you’re not really sure how things will turn out. When the Moon moves into Cancer in the middle of the week and meets up with Jupiter entering Scorpio, you may feel like the rug is being pulled out from under you. Not really, it’s just your control issues looking back at you from a mirror being held up by Neptune in your House of Confinement. Over the weekend after a Leo Moon enters your House of Fun and makes nice with Venus in Libra, you’ll no doubt have a big smile ready when Mr. Saturn asks you to say, “CHEESE!” for his fb post.

Taurus- This will be a week of mixed feelings as you move forward with a big decision you’ve made. If you’ve recently decided to move or switch jobs, make sure you realize that your fear of change is in your head, just like the possibility of losing touch with true friends. You wanted a fresh start and now you’re going to get it. Pluto in your House of Long Distance Journeys and Venus with Mars in your House of Creativity have been planning this with you for the last month, so move forward with confidence. Venus moving into Libra and the Moon in Leo over the weekend should provide a hopeful reception from whatever awaits. In the meantime Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you.

“Uncertainty forms

A space for discovery

To come and meet you”

Gemini- As the week begins you will find yourself re-evaluating your interactions with people. Mr. Saturn in your House of Relationships will be reminding you that the only one you really have control of is yourself. The way others treat you will only be a reflection of that, so stop letting someone else dictate the mood you’re in. As Jupiter enters your House of Work start letting those on the job see the real you. If you’re necessary to them then they’ll have to deal with it! The Leo Moon over the weekend will make you want to escape into the Land of Fun, where the Sun, Mercury, and Venus are all waiting.

Cancer- The arc of the Moon for you this week will begin with worrying about a friend or family member, followed by you trying to fix their problem for them, and ending with you making your own stressed out life a priority instead (at last!!!). Meanwhile, your job is still just a job, but a new challenge may be presented to you this the week that might make you forget how bored and unappreciated you have felt. A relationship should regain some of its old spark when Venus enters your domestic sphere and you decide to start bringing happy home again instead of your frustrations with the world. “Oh baby, you know what I like,” purrs Mr. Saturn.

Leo- Early in the week when the Moon enters Cancer and Jupiter moves into Scorpio your current living situation is going to become a major priority (if it isn’t already) simply because you don’t feel at home there (and never really did). You have compromised yourself into this corner for someone else and now you feel stuck. Realize you have the resources to change the situation so it isn’t you that’s stuck. It’s just that you’ve been waiting for a partner to start pulling their own weight. Maybe they need a push to get going (or is it you that needs to be pushed?)? When the Moon enters your sign over the weekend you’ll have all the reasons necessary to express yourself on this situation. Mr. Saturn is just wondering if it will come out like the meow of a pussycat or the roar of a lion?

Virgo- You’ve been occupied for a while now trying to make everything perfect before you offer your work to the world. As Jupiter enters Scorpio and Venus arrives in your House of Self Worth, it’s your confidence that’s going to have to rise to a level worthy of the work, not the other way around. You see it’s no longer about what you do (and you do it so well) it’s about what you think about yourself. The arc of the Moon this week will make you want to continue this excessive polishing of something that already shines, but what you need to realize instead is that you just have to get over a good old fashion case of cold feet. Unless of course you’d rather have your partner point it out to you? “Ouch!” comments Mr. Saturn.

Libra- A lot has been going on behind the scenes for you, in fact, if you look back, you’ll be surprised just how much your daily life has changed. It won’t be long before all the hard work you’ve been doing will start to show rewards. If money has been tight, plan on a welcome influx of opportunities and/or cash as Jupiter enters your House of Earnings and the Moon transits your House of Career. With Venus emerging out of the shadows at the end of the week and coming to visit, expect to be a little more in demand than usual. The Leo Moon over the weekend will be about friends, but don’t be surprised if you’re the center of attention. Mr. Saturn may even want to buy you a drink!

Scorpio- Jupiter is the planetary archetype of Philosophy and when it enters your sign early in the week don’t be surprised if you find yourself thinking a little bigger than usual. This expansive attitude will be helped when the Moon enters Cancer at the same time, so make sure you’re listening to those intuitive urges you’re feeling. A Mars/Saturn square will last most of the week and provide some immediate challenges in terms of your available resources, but when the Moon enters Leo over the weekend and squares Jupiter your pride will answer the call. As Mr. Saturn always say’s, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.”

Sagittarius- You seem to have so many responsibilities, but are any of them to yourself? Mr. Saturn in your sign has been like death and taxes, and his square to Mars this week will make it feel like you’re driving a car with the brake on at work. Pluto will also be aspecting Mars at this time and together they may be the answer to getting unstuck at work. That is, if you’re wiling to take a risk and look for another situation where you’d be more appreciated. Jupiter is the planetary ruler of your sign and this week it will enter Scorpio and cross the threshold into your House of Secrets. This is a very protective influence and could bring either moral support or financial help from a sympathetic friend or family member.

Capricorn- Pluto in your sign for the last minute has been like having the “Tibetan Book of the Dead” performed in your living room, although for the time being the Bardos containing the demons may be over. Jupiter entering Scorpio in your House of Hopes and Dreams at the same time as a Cancer Moon arrives in your House of Partnerships could bring a new friend or special someone into your life. Expect this person to be attracted to who you’re evolving into and not who you’ve been. Over the weekend Venus coming home to Libra and the Moon cruising into Leo will amp up your charisma, so make sure you’re out and about for the world to see. Mr. Saturn may even lower his shades to check you out!

Aquarius- With the lower part of your chart containing only Neptune in Pisces, Uranus in Aries, and the Moon, which will enter Cancer mid-week, this could be perhaps the most anxious you have felt in a while. When Jupiter enters Scorpio it will be crossing your mid-heaven, so be careful your pride doesn’t become your Achilles heel. Venus returning home to Libra is a good thing, but for you it may be no more than a nervous smile trying to hide some serious anger. After all, Pluto in your House of Secrets has been harboring more than a little resentment for a while. A word to the wise, Mr. Saturn has your House of Secrets scheduled for an audit at year’s end, so for now just try to breathe until Pluto and his work can be accounted for.

Pisces- With Uranus and Pluto camped out in two of your three money Houses, finances have been quite erratic for some time now. However, with Venus entering your House of Legacies, a welcome balance is now being introduced to that third money House so take a deep breath and relax. Jupiter entering Scorpio combined with the Moon in Cancer mid-week will serve to ignite your intuition and you may come up with some clever (and profitable) ideas. If you’ve been unemployed (or under employed) as of late, the Moon in Leo over the weekend could bring a lead for a new job. Mr. Saturn in your House of Career would add,“just make sure you’re scrubbed up right for any interview, appearances count.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #4

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/2 – 10/8, 2017

 Hi kids!!! Thanks for stopping by again this week. Are you ready for your straight, no chaser shot of Astrology? If any of you have any questions, or agree or disagree with anything that appears here, feel free to make a comment or even take a knee if you’d like. Mr. Saturn supports the NFL (No F**king Lies).

Aries- This week may turn out to be a lesson in the art of compromise. Even though you’re feeling inspired, maybe even visionary, circumstances may dictate this isn’t the right time for you to get your way. Of course this annoys you and having rebellious Uranus in your sign isn’t helping matters. A Full Moon in Aries late in the week will highlight relationship issues (specifically the absence of one). Mr. Saturn would suggest trying to be a little more Zen about how you could be more approachable, which would mean sitting still for a change and actually allowing someone else to do the approaching.

Taurus- On the surface you appear to be as stable as Mt. Fuji, but with a Full Moon this week in your House of Secrets you will be bubbling under the surface like a volcano. With Uranus in that secret place as well, the time has come for you Bulls to see red and put an end to all the crap you’ve been putting up with from passive aggressive (and even downright aggressive) assh*les. This weekend the Moon in your sign will be aligning with Venus, Mars, and Pluto, so be willing to let your hair down either figuratively or literally. Mr. Saturn would also add this reminder, “If you’re partying, make sure you do it responsibly and may the Force be with you.”

Gemini- Here we go again. You try to be fair to some lazy ass at work and instead end up being perceived as a push over. This week’s Aries Full Moon will be in your House of Groups and square Pluto in your house of Power, so maybe it’s time to stop worrying about being nice to a manipulator and instead be effective in dealing with them, especially if you’re going to be the one that’s ultimately responsible for what they do or don’t do. Being a History buff, Mr. Saturn would like to share one of his fav quotes, “Speak softly, but carry a big stick.”

Cancer- The arc of the Moon this week will span from Pisces to Taurus, from sensitivity to stability, with an explosive stop in between when it reaches it’s full stage in compulsive, hard charging Aries. You may be tempted to lose it at work later in the week, but don’t take the bait. The person trying to provoke you has realized you’re beyond their influence and they’re grasping at straws. Your ability at this time to be the consummate professional will not only set the tone for where you’re headed psychologically and spiritually, but it will also drive this bully nuts! Mr. Saturn’s impressed…imagine that!

Leo- The point of having stability in your life is so you won’t have to worry about it. Venus and Mars in your House of Earned Income and Pluto in your job area would show that at this time you have a solid foundation to build on. The Full Moon in Aries later in the week in your House of Philosophy is therefore going to be more about your sense of self worth rather than your material status, meaning that any real sense of security needs to come from within you and not your circumstances. As a result, be careful about coming up with excuses to defer a dream you have. What’s that? No, you’re not hearing things, that’s Mr. Saturn clucking like a chicken in the background.

Virgo- With Mr. Saturn in your House of Foundations and the Full Moon in your House of Transformation, the theme this week should be one of reconciliation. You should seriously consider the possibility that the way you think of someone can prejudice the way you interpret (and subsequently judge) his or her behavior. The Full Moon in Aries may summon up some circumstances that could help you better understand the song lyric, “walk a mile in my shoes before you criticize and accuse.” Consider also that the harsh judgments you occasionally direct at others could actually be a projection of how you feel about yourself.

Libra- You could receive a surprise this week in the form of some unexpected recognition. Venus and Mars behind the scenes in Virgo along with the Aries Full Moon in your House of Partnerships could bring an offer to promote either something you’ve done in the past that’s still relevant or perhaps a newer idea whose time has come. Mr. Saturn rewards those who do the work and he’s been watching you toiling away in your House of Writing for the last couple of years. A Taurus Moon over the weekend will help you relax with loved ones. Enjoy a nature hike or just lounge on a park bench.

Scorpio- Pay attention to your health this week. Not that there is anything wrong, but you have been neglecting your body and if you want it to keep up with your active life-style then this could be the time for a tune-up. With Neptune in your House of Romance and Fun it may also be the right time for you to come out of hiding and show the world you’re available. Venus and Mars in your House of Friends and Groups will insure that you shine with that unmistakable Scorpio allure, while Jupiter behind the scenes under the light of a Full Moon could bring you luck in the form of a very interesting stranger. Woo woo!!!

Sagittarius- Be careful that you haven’t given up on the possibility of joy in your life. With the Full Moon this week in your House of Fun what would it take for you to say, “Oh what the hell!” and then do something enjoyable? The Sun is transiting your House of Groups so make sure you accept any invitations that come your way. Uranus could bring some unexpected adventures and maybe a new companion to help you explore this mysterious new world of happy. Mr. Saturn in your sign will still be your chaperone for a while, but he may just be willing to look the other way this time. Will you risk it?

Capricorn- We can go all the way to the other side of the earth but our issues will always follow us. An obstacle now may appear to be a set back, but a Full Moon this week at the bottom of your chart is going to birth a new you to rise to the occasion. Just remember babies don’t want to be born, they’re forced to. In fact they’re literally thrown out kicking and screaming. You’ve been praying for a change and now the time has come. All you have to do is be willing to change your mind; piece of cake, right? Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you. Enjoy.

“You can’t expect what

Will set you free, only hope

That you accept it”

Aquarius- Discretion may be the better part of valor for you this week. The temptation to speak your mind may be irresistible during the Aries Full Moon, but remember, a diplomatic Libra Sun is illuminating that Moon so keep to the Taoist principle that the Superior Individual shows his or her intelligence by concealing it. Besides, whomever this individual is that you’d like to unload on, they might just have something you will need in the future. Mr. Saturn say’s, “take your lead from Sydney Greenstreet in “The Maltese Falcon,” that dude was smooth.”

Pisces- The lessons you are learning now are not just about succeeding at whatever it is you need to accomplish, but also that you master the excesses of your personality in the process. The Full Moon this week in your House of Self Worth opposing a balanced Libra Sun in the House of Shared Resources will be trying to show you the connections that exist between how you feel about yourself and then how that attitude is reflected in the surrounding world. Mr. Saturn would summarize it as, “good luck is about who you are, not what you do.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #3

Weekly Horoscopes for 9/25 – 10/1 2017

 Hi kids!!! Welcome to the newest installment of “Mr. Saturn’s Stars”. Why don’t you get comfortable, take a deep breath, sit back, and relax. You have another 12 words to read before reality hits the fan and the lessons begin….<3

 

Aries- What would you like to see working better in your life? With Venus and Mars in your House of Health and Routines the time has come for some positive changes. Consider going for a make over, hiring a personal trainer, or even renovating your home or office space. The arc of the Moon this week through Sagittarius, Capricorn, and Aquarius will be telling you to “Acknowledge what needs to be done and then take the necessary steps. In addition Mr. Saturn would add, “and stop whining how difficult things are, it only makes matters that much worse.”

Taurus- As a Sagittarius Moon squares both Neptune and Saturn to start the week, you may be torn between being convinced you’ll be successful and worrying that the Universe is against you. By mid-week a Capricorn Moon along with Pluto, Venus, and Mars should be of assistance in helping you to understand that the truth is not the reflection of a mood, but rather a realization that exists somewhere between hope and pessimism in that unavoidable place known as effort. With the Moon in Aquarius over the weekend don’t be surprised if you hear Mr. Saturn whispering over your shoulder, “Build it, and they will come…. Go the distance!”

Gemini- You say you’re ready for a change, but with Neptune sitting at the top of your chart are you really sure what that means? Venus and Mars in your House of Foundations is like having one of those property-flipping couples from Cable TV show up at your door offering to transform your life into a more “open concept.” That may seem exciting, but are you ready to start digging under the surface of your day-to-day in order to see what needs to be repaired, or even trashed altogether? Mr. Saturn’s advice would be, “when people say they’re ready, it usually means they’re ready for what they already know. Real change needs to be a complete mystery, so be careful what you ask for……”

Cancer- Mr. Saturn say’s, “Growing pains are not just for kids.” You have learned that quite well over the last few months my crabby friend, having fretted and worried over every single change that has come down the pike for you and yours. But rejoice, an epiphany is at hand! Venus, Mars, and Mercury in your House of Thinking are finally grounding all the visions Neptune has been downloading to you from the heavens. These realizations can be crystalized by simply repeating the Magick words, “LET GO”. You are about to enter a very creative phase when Jupiter goes into Scorpio next month, so get started now by doing something completely different, like forgiving yourself.

Leo- There is nothing sadder than seeing a Lion in captivity, unless of course that Lion is wearing the key to his cage around his neck. You’ve felt stuck for a while now, but if you’d just take a good look in the mirror you’d see that the key to freedom is in your possession. You’re ready for a change and you have the resources to make it happen. The question is, do you believe you deserve to have your dreams? With Jupiter and Uranus in your Houses of Writing and Philosophy this would probably be an excellent time to start organizing your creative ideas into a formal project. Once you’ve made the effort, Mr. Saturn in your House of Creativity might very well suggest, “If you need an editor, I’m available.

Virgo- With Venus and Mars aspecting Pluto in your House of Creativity and Romance your charisma at this time is undeniable, so make sure you get out there and work it! Look for a new job, promote your ideas, but remember, with Neptune in your House of Partnerships don’t make the mistake of being too agreeable or you could end up getting played. Jupiter and Uranus in opposing money houses could indicate either windfalls or rip-offs, so be careful. In short Mr. Saturn would advise, “Grass, gas, or ass, but no one rides for free!”

Libra- The Sun will be in your sign for the next month so don’t waste it! This week the Moon will be moving through your areas of Ideas, Foundations, and Creativity, so Mr. Saturn say’s get out there and start searching around to promote your ideas and creative projects, especially those involving writing or healing modalities. Relationships could be challenging at this time. What would be very helpful though in eliminating possible problems with partners and family would be a willingness to be honest and communicate. With Neptune in your House of Work and Routines things could get confusing, so don’t take anything for granted in your dealings with others.

Scorpio- Jupiter transiting through the secret part of your chart has been a protective influence for you at work. As a result you have been able to grow and mature in the face of some very difficult challenges. Now though you have the time (if you want) to focus on your personal life and the things that are closer to your heart. Get in touch with a friend you haven’t seen in a while, or spend some time with a special young person in your life. Follow through on that idea you are always thinking or talking about but never investing any time in. Take the time to “do you”. You are the inspiration for Mr. Saturn’s haiku this month, so put that thinking cap on!

Is your “free” time spent

Like a skydiver who thinks

Falling is flying?

Sagittarius- Neptune is a very slow moving planet and its action in our chart is subtle. Imagine filling a dirty pot with hot water and then letting it soak overnight so that the crusty leftover food will be easier to clean away. Neptune will be doing this in your House of Home and Family for several more years, meaning that any difficulties you are having now with your parents or siblings are intended to change you into what you need to be as opposed to what they want you to be. Pluto is your wingman on this as well, meaning your karma is at work, so pay attention! Mr. Saturn say’s “karma is like a Ping-Pong match. If you try to win then play only continues. The idea is to walk away and break the cycle.”

Capricorn- Your immediate reality has you extremely frustrated and you have lost sight of the forest for the trees. Venus, Mars, and Mercury in your House of Philosophy have you struggling to make sense of your recent losses (Pluto) in the midst of a foggy present (Neptune). In addition, a Jupiter and Uranus opposition at the top and bottom of your chart has you struggling to keep sight of the stars that represent your dreams as you stand on the deck of a dramatically rocking ship piloted by Mr. Saturn, who is giving an Oscar worthy performance as the domineering Captain Bligh to your morally torn Mr. Christian.

Aquarius- You pride yourself as a “thinker” who knows it all, but as of late your philosophical outlook has only been about control. You want the environment to facilitate your comfort, when the smarter approach would be to let the environment transform you beyond your current limitations. The arc of the Moon this week will bring home a lesson of responsibility when it meets with Pluto in your House of Confinement. A “Personal New Moon” in your sign will follow this over the weekend just as Mercury enters Libra. Mr. Saturn would advise that the writing on the wall at this time is about balance and compromise, not control.

Pisces- As long as Neptune is in your sign it’ll seem like you’re living in San Francisco when the fog rolls in off Alcatraz and the harbor is reduced to zero visibility. A crowd of planets now in Virgo opposing Neptune may act like a spotlight and reveal to you something you’d rather not see; remember Bogie’s surprise in the Maltese Falcon when he discovers his dead partner down at the foggy pier? Mr. Saturn in your House of Career and Uranus in your house of Self Worth might be indicating it’s time to conform a little and accept how things are, even if it’s not how you want them to be. A current relationship may seem like the perfect escape, just don’t become someone else’s idea of you.
