Mr. Saturn’s Stars #104, Special Bernie Sanders “Get Well” Edition

Special Bernie Sanders “Get Well” Edition

 

On Tuesday October 1stpresidential hopeful Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont experienced chest pains during a campaign event and was subsequently rushed to the hospital where it was determined he had a blockage in one of his arteries. Doctors inserted two stents into the artery in question and on Wednesday October 2ndit was reported that the Senator was in good spirits and resting peacefully.

 

While the preceding paragraph outlines the basic facts of what happened to the 78 year old Politician, it gives no indication whatsoever of the emotions that swirled around the country when literally millions of working class people of all races, nationalities, and sexual persuasions started hearing news reports that their champion had possibly fallen. Yet in true Bernie fashion, by late Wednesday (the day after his incident) the Senator was both tweeting and posting on instagram in his inimitable style proclaiming how lucky he was to have good healthcare, adding that it also made him think of how scary it would be for someone who didn’t have insurance. He went on to say how many Americans are uninsured or underinsured and would be facing financial ruin if they were to have to pay out of pocket for a procedure like he had received. Even as he lay recuperating in the hospital this lion of a man was still thinking about and fighting for those less fortunate.

 

Now of course the mainstream corporate media will try to write Bernie off because of this recent health episode, engaging in subtle (and not so subtle) criticisms that he is too old. And of course no such criticisms will be made against his competitors Joe Biden or Elizabeth Warren, despite the fact that Biden is only a year younger than Bernie and Warren at 70 is pretty close to the life expectancy for an adult woman in the U.S. While this sort of double standard seems unfair, it is something that Bernie Sanders has become used to in his long and storied career. Since being elected the Mayor of Burlington Vermont in 1981, he has continuously rubbed the establishment the wrong way and irked those in power with his relentless demands for a more equitable society. From marching with Gay Activists as Burlington’s Mayor in the 1980’s, to Feminist Gloria Steinem announcing her support for his 1996 House Campaign by declaring him an “Honorable Woman”, to his recent marches with Amazon and Walmart workers for a $15 minimum wage, Senator Bernie Sanders has been a warrior for social and economic justice his entire career. As his campaign chair former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner would put it, “Bernie has the receipts”, meaning simply that his record speaks for itself.

 

Bernie Sanders has done the right thing and been on the right side of the issues consistently throughout his career, even when it was unpopular and at times dangerous to do so. As a young man he marched for Civil Rights with Doctor Martin Luther King and later got his ass beat by Chicago police demonstrating for affordable housing for minorities. As a young Congressman he stood up in the House of Representatives and strenuously took exception when someone testifying in the chamber referred to “Homos in the Military.” During that incident Bernie would not yield to the Speakers gavel until the bigot had been put in his place. He was also one of the few serving in the Congress at the time that risked being labeled unpatriotic when he voted against the Iraq War and the lies of the Bush Administration.

 

At this point in his career it could be said that Senator Bernie Sanders is arguably the most influential Legislator of his generation. During his first Presidential run in 2016 his platform included programs such as Medicare for All, Free tuition at State Colleges, a $15 Minimum Wage, Corporate Tax Reform, and Bold Climate Change Legislation, all of which his Democratic colleagues and the mainstream corporate media criticized him for, claiming it was unrealistic and “pie in the sky,” adding “how are you gonna pay for all this?” When Bernie pointed out to his opponents that they didn’t worry about where the money would come from for the country’s $700 Billion Defense budget or that highly profitable corporations like Amazon and Walmart payed $0 in Federal Taxes, suggesting perhaps that’s where the money could be found to fund his social programs, no one paid attention. When he also announced he would not take money from big donors to pay for his campaign expenses the pundits said he didn’t stand a chance. Fast-forward now to the current Democratic Presidential Primaries of 2019 and everyone in the field is repeating one or more of Bernie’s ideas and spinning them as their own, while at the same time his campaign has raised the most money of any candidate so far; 61.5 million dollars from over 3.4 million donations with the average contribution being $18.

 

It is Mr. Saturn’s opinion that Bernie Sanders is the only honest politician out there. Certainly he’s the only one with a consistent track record of actually doing what he say’s he’s going to do and fighting the good fight for working people no matter what he’s up against. An example of this occurred during the second democratic presidential debate when he called out CNN’s Jake Tapper for using Republican talking points to criticize the idea of a single payer health insurance program adding, “During the commercial breaks tonight CNN will be airing pharmaceutical ads” (which in fact happened). Now for those who may not be paying attention, if CNN is taking ad money from Big Pharma it would then seem likely that they would also want to discourage presenting a national health plan in a favorable light, especially since Bernie’s Medicare for All would eliminate private insurance and put price limits on prescription drugs. It’s not often here in the U.S. that we see a politician speak truth to Corporate Power, most of them simply take the big donor money and then vote according to their contributors interests, ignoring what the constituents who elected them might actually need.

 

When I initially heard of Bernie’s health episode the first thing I thought of was that America would once again lose a great leader when the country needed him most.  Since the hope of the 1960’s we have watched the nation slowly succumb to corporate control as our visionaries get assassinated, the rich get richer, the rest of us get poorer, and the society at large passively accepts a high-tech, sound bite, celebrity driven, virtual substitute for what was once a real world with real people and real responsibilities. We are undeniably at a critical crossroads in our nation’s history and it can’t be ignored. At a time when Corporate monopolies and their cancer-like need for profits are destroying our environment and ignoring the plight of the average person, when the vast majority of wealth in our society is ascending like a helicopter to the top 1%, and 90% of the country is being left to drown in a combined undertow of stagnated wages and rising inflation, we desperately need someone who will tell the truth and fight with us to get out of this maze where all that’s waiting for our children when they grow up is a Minotaur of financial, spiritual, and global ruin.

 

Bernie Sanders is a fighter. He’s had a health episode. He’s also received the standard treatment for it that should leave him in better shape in the long run. Of course his adversaries will begin their death knell that he’s done, but as long as he can walk, Bernie will get out there and fight for us. He’s proven that over the last 40 years of his career. While he’s healing let’s send him our prayers. It’s Our Revolution, but we still need him out there in front of us for a while.

 

“Wherever there’s a fight so hungry people can eat, I’ll be there. Wherever there’s a cop beatin’ up a guy, I’ll be there……..I’ll be in the way guys yell when they’re mad-I’ll be in the way kids laugh when they’re hungry and they know suppers ready. And when folks eat the stuff they raise and live in the houses they build- why, I’ll be there. See? God, I’m talkin’ like Casy. Comes of thinkin’ about him so much. Seems like I can see him sometimes.”

-John Steinbeck “The Grapes of Wrath”

 

 

 

The Astrology of Bernie’s Health Episode

 

Even though Bernie’s episode occurred on October 1st , it is necessary to look back a couple of weeks to around September 15thwhen the Vermont Senator had his Mercury return in order to gain some valuable insight into what happened. While a Mercury return is a brief transit, it can often indicate a dramatic increase in activity and stress as the Messenger Planet brings with it the potential for an avalanche of communications and social interactions. For those who might not be aware, Senator Sanders was averaging 5 to 10 events a week all around the country prior to the time of his feeling chest pains.

 

On the day of his episode Saturn, the planet of structure and the natural order, was in alignment with Bernie’s natal Sun in Virgo, the sign of health. At the same time, transiting Neptune was in opposition to his Sun, meaning that because Bernie is a tough S.O.B he was probably ignoring the signs that he needed a rest, however, when Saturn comes calling if you won’t do the right thing voluntarily, then you may just find that circumstances will force you to do what is necessary. In addition, Saturn was also squaring Bernie’s natal Moon in Aries, a placement that no doubt gives him his prodigious drive and energy but also at that time might have been running amok and making him try to do way too much. In short, Saturn the Teacher pulled Bernie out of the mix in order that he partake in some necessary rest in order to pace his 78 year old body for the long campaign ahead. Because Saturn is also about discipline and routines, it would probably be a good idea as well if Bernie (and his staff) began watching his diet a little more carefully while he’s traveling, particularly when it comes to the many heart un-healthy foods one is forced to eat when jetting all around the country.

 

A saving grace at this time was that the episode happened during Bernie’s Venus return, which occurred in the balanced sign of Libra where his natal Venus was in harmonious aspect with both his natal and transiting Jupiter. Whenever Jupiter is involved there is always the possibility of excess, yet when it combined with Venus at the time of that planet’s return in the Senator’s chart, it also made me think that an important realization would be made on the part of Bernie (and his staff) that he’s not a young man anymore and it would be wise to pacethe campaign a little more evenly.

 

In short, it seems that both Saturn and Jupiter, with a little help from Venus (All you Need is Love) have conspired together to slow down our possible future POTUS just enough so he can rejuvenate himself. He still has a long journey to the White House and after he gets there he’s still going to need a lot of energy in reserve to be able to govern and change this country the way it needs to be changed.

 

Like a fine wine, I think we will see a vintage Bernie Sanders in 2020.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #91 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/8-7/14, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/8-7/14, 2019

 

 Aries- With 5 retrograde planets this week things could very well seem a little bass-akwards, if you know what I mean?  Mercury gong in reverse in your House of Creativity and the dramatic sign of Leo as well as Jupiter in your House of Publishing could see a long-term project delayed by some minor snafu’s, which could annoy you to no end. Meanwhile, Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Career will be saying exactly what you’d expect to hear from them, namely “be patient, blah, blah, blah….” To add to the stress Neptune behind the scenes will no doubt be fear mongering that the difficulties will never end. The final coup de grace will come though when the Moon transits through the Via Combusta to oppose crazy old Uranus in your House of Self Worth while Mars in turn squares the old man…….A word to the wise, It’s always darkest before the dawn. If you have a hard time accepting that then try washing it down with a drink (or five)…..What can I say?

 

Taurus- Rebellious Uranus is in your sign now and he’s going to be squared this week by arrogant Mars in Leo. Add to that 5 retrograde planets (including mischievous Mercury) as well as the Sun and Venus in sensitive Cancer and you may just be finding yourself whispering under your breath, “There’s no place like home,” and subconsciously tapping your heels together out of desperation. Of course it’s not that bad, but we all know that reality is a lot about attitude and if you’re feeling that nothing is making sense and everything is against you then you will likely end up reaping that whirlwind!  Jupiter in your House of Transformation moving into an esoteric inconjunct with Venus in your House of Communication could bring some unexpected good news based on something you did at the beginning of the year that is offering a much needed dividend now……..The Universe works in mysterious ways so try not to buy too much into the necessary smoke and mirrors of what seems to be happening……..Faith is an exercise, not a fact.

 

Gemini- There are going to be 5 planets spinning retrograde this week; 2 are in your House of Transformation, 1 in your House of Communication, 1 in your House of Partnerships, and 1 in your House of Public Image……What does this all mean? If there is a paper trail (or even a trail of stale breadcrumbs) connecting you to any shady people or shady dealings from the past the time may have arrived for the chickens to come home to roost. Mars, the planet of action, will be in your House of Communication along with Mercury retrograde, so try to stop the urge to double down on your denials if you’ve been caught dead to rights. Trying to spin the facts or transfer the blame could blow up in your face if you’re not careful. The best strategy for now would be to accept what’s happening and let the Sun and Venus in compassionate Cancer help you to seek out assistance behind the scenes, that is, if anyone is still taking your calls.

 

Cancer- As 5 planets go retrograde this week you may find yourself taking more than one stroll down memory lane and thinking about things you haven’t thought about in years. Saturn and Pluto going backwards in your House of Relationships could see you reminiscing about how you met a loved one and realizing how damn lucky you are that you did. Mercury reversing in your House of Self Worth and joining with Mars will likely activate your pride as you review how you arrived at wherever you are in your job as well as how you’re going to eventually get the hell out of there.  On a more positive note, Jupiter in your House of Health esoterically aligning with Venus in your sign will have you realizing the need to change some aspects of your lifestyle if you would hope to operate at your highest performance level in the future. All in all this should be a week where you will get some encouraging glimpses of the future along with finally seeing the truth of certain things you have worried about in the past (which you didn’t need to).

 

Leo- Mercury is retrograde now in your sign and as he joins with Mars to square rebellious Uranus in your House of Career you could experience some real catharsis this week regarding both your career and how you think of yourself. Uranus in turn will be aligning with Venus behind the scenes in the emotional sign of Cancer, likely helping you realize how much of your shyness about your feelings is more about you judging yourself than others judging you. Combine this with Jupiter in your House of Creativity squaring Neptune in your House of Transformation and it should become obvious that you’ve never really given yourself a chance to show what you can do in regards to a dream you have kept secret for a while. As Saturn and Pluto continue retrograde in your House of Work it is important that you confront your confidence issues ASAP because as soon as these two transformative planets go direct it will be time to leave the womb you have allowed yourself to hide in for far too long.

 

Virgo- As Mercury retrograde and Mars crash into each other behind the scenes in your chart and square iconoclastic Uranus in your House of Career, you may not be able to swallow your pride any longer when it comes to someone taking advantage of you either at work or in a serious relationship. With Neptune transiting your House of Partnerships and aligning with both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Creativity you’ve been able to justify your subservience with this person so far in regards to eventually getting ahead, however, if you haven’t yet advanced with this strategy then it’s high time for you to show what you can do on your own and stop treating this individual with kid gloves. The Sun and Venus coming together in the nurturing sign of Cancer and your House of Dreams is all about believing in yourself and inspiring others to do the same, which would mean getting out from under any shadows being cast over you and instead be willing to try and shine on your own.

 

Libra- What represents an honest expression for you of something you’ve experienced might raise a little controversy among those who are less imaginative and insightful. Mars and Mercury retrograde will be conjunct in your House of Groups and squaring individualistic Uranus in your House of Transformation, which means by expressing a cathartic moment from your past you might inadvertently end up pressing the buttons for some current fears that exist for anyone who hasn’t been willing to face themselves in the mirror. This may lead to some uncomfortable moments (for them) but perhaps cooler heads will prevail and someone will recognize you’ve actually hit on something universal.  Jupiter in your House of Writing inconjuncting Venus in your House of Career may actually find you a champion once the nervous nellies are done having their moment and what you created can be seen for what it really is.

 

Scorpio- With 5 planets retrograde this week it might be a good time for you to recap how your year has gone so far along with what might lay in store as a result. Mercury retrograde and Mars in your House of Public Image squaring Uranus in your House of Relationships will likely bring some surprises, especially in how you think of yourself in the face of so many people recently saying such nice things to you and/or about you to others. The Sun and Venus together in your House of Philosophy represent the emergence of a new sense of belonging and compassion in your life as you now seek to connect with people when in the past you probably tried to avoid public interaction like the plague.  Saturn and Pluto in your House of Communication for the last year would have shut most people down, but oddly enough it has had the opposite effect on you. I guess all you ready needed Mr/Ms Scorpio to bring you out of your isolation was a little death and resurrection action. Welcome back to life!

 

Sagittarius- As Mercury retrograde and Mars collide in your House of Philosophy and square irrational Uranus in your House of Work, you may be brought to a harsh realization about just how bat shit crazy someone at work is and that you can no longer give them the benefit of the doubt. The Sun and Venus together in your House of Transformation would indicate that any changes for you now should have the proper support and assistance so that you will be able to move on successfully from any past conflicts. On the other hand, with Saturn and Pluto still digging graves in your House of Self Worth, make sure you are actively trying to let go of any past fears or else you may find yourself recreating the same old shit in a new location.  As the Moon passes out from the shadows of Scorpio later in the week and enters your sign you should experience a nice little buzz, like that first glass of wine after a hard day…….Cheers……You deserve it.

 

Capricorn- Saturn and Pluto are still working backwards in your sign, plus there are 3 other retrograde planets in your Houses of Confinement, Communication, and Transformation. My advice? If you have any vacation time, take it; have some drinks and let the shit show pass, if you can. Uranus will be making a long-term transit in your House of Creativity, so rest assured that opportunities and ideas will crop up to shake the tree and bring down some unexpected fruit, just don’t think about luck either way and let yourself be surprised when it pinches you on the ass. Kind of like Ringo getting invited into the Beatles……Get it? After all, you’re also going to be having the Sun and Venus passing through your House of Partnerships and the nurturing sign of Cancer, meaning that all this shit over the last few months has been for a reason, if only for you to know that you’re worthy of redemption……..Amen.

 

Aquarius- Uranus passing through your House of Home and Foundations could be either a blessing or a curse and you won’t know until something happens. Mercury retrograde and Mars passing now through your House of Relationships and the proud sign of Leo are about communication and respect as well as you getting quite grumpy if you’re not being treated the way you’d like. The bad news is that this could mean conflict with a family member, but the good news is that this person may very well deserve to have you rip them a new orifice and it will likely be quite cathartic for you to do it! Jupiter retrograde squaring Neptune retrograde in your House of Self Worth may represent the resultant epiphany regarding how this individual played on your inherent niceness as well as how you can now play with their emotions by pointing out that they’ve always been a miserable shit regardless if you did anything or not. So, didn’t that feel good? Ha ha, I thought so…..Now treat yourself to something nice, you deserve it.

 

Pisces- As the Sun and Venus in your House of Romance and Creativity pull into a luxurious trine with Neptune in your sign you may find yourself caught up in a glamorous setting that isn’t as real (or profitable) as you believe. The wake up call about this could come from Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career squaring Neptune or else erratic Uranus in your House of Communication entering into a hard angle with Mercury retrograde and Mars in your House of Routines. Either way this will be pretty much a textbook disappointment caused by over inflated expectations in turn fueled by someone else willing to lead you on. On the other hand, the good news is that this fiasco will end up freeing you from your naive illusions so that you can instead get down to some real activities that will allow you to actually accomplish something for yourself.  As they say, if the world serves you lemons then make lemonade…….Cheers!

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #86 Weekly Horoscopes for 5/20-5/26, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 5/20-5/26, 2019

 

 Aries- As Mars enters the security oriented sign of Cancer and your House of Symbolic Foundations to align with Venus and Uranus in your House of Self Worth, you could find yourself speculating about possible rainy days ahead and what you might do to avert them. Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Career will also have you thinking about where your career might be going, especially with Neptune behind the scenes causing you to wonder if you want to continue along the path you’ve been on. As Mercury enters the Communication oriented sign of Gemini and the House it naturally rules, this could be the perfect time for you to start exploring the possibilities of doing what you’d like to for a living instead of what you have been doing just to make ends meet. As the Lunar Arc crosses your Mid-heaven make sure to get out there and explore the possibilities, you might be exactly what someone is looking for.

 

Taurus- Venus in your sign will have you desiring the best for yourself at this time, while Uranus in your sign and Mars in your House of Communication could find you all too willing to fight about it if anyone tries to deny your naturally materialistic nature. With both the Sun and Mercury entering the quixotic and chatty sign of Gemini, try to channel any frustration you may be feeling about what’s not working out for you now into some challenging mental exercise, perhaps in the form of a hobby or taking a class on something you’ve always wondered about but never took the time for. Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Philosophy aligning with Neptune in your House of Dreams could steer you toward an artistic endeavor, especially since Venus in your sign is already activating your good taste and you’re feeling particularly inspired; go for it!

 

Gemini-The Sun will enter your sign this week officially marking the beginning of Gemini season, during which time it will be aided and abetted by Mercury, the planet of both Communication and Business as well as your sign’s ruler. If you’re feeling ambitious (or insecure) this could be a particularly frenetic time for you as Uranus and Venus together behind the scenes will be flaming your desire for the good things in life while Mars in your House of Self Worth will have you feeling like life isn’t worth living unless you have the best of everything. This type of manifest destiny is what topples empires so be careful, although with both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Transformation you won’t be getting anything in the near future that you haven’t earned so, rather than drive yourself crazy, why don’t you instead try to calm yourself down with something like meditation or tai chi? Or perhaps even thinking about someone else besides yourself?

 

Cancer- Mars entering your sign this week should give you a burst of energy, especially as it aligns nicely with Venus and Uranus in your House of Dreams making you feel like you’re ready to give yourself a break from the trials and tribulations of taking care of the whole world by yourself. While escaping is a nice notion, we both know that you will continue to feel like everyone’s good time is dependent upon you, meaning you’ll probably channel that Mars energy into making damn sure everyone has what they need so you don’t go crazy listening to them complain. Sound nutty? Welcome to the cave of logic the crab creates by digging itself into the surf. Saturn and Pluto retrograde together in your House of Relationships aligning with Neptune in your House of Long Distance travels could find you both enjoying some time away and missing a loved one at the same time. We’re back to the crab digging itself into the beach so, if you can get to the shore why don’t you join your crustacean totem for a swim and get back to where this all started regarding you enjoying yourself.

 

Leo- With Venus and Uranus in your House of Career this week you could be exactly what someone has been looking for, however, don’t be too available just yet. Make sure to ask yourself, are they what you’ve been looking for? Mars behind the scenes in the sensitive sign of Cancer could have you feeling insecure, which might find you willing to settle for less just to be liked. Really? While Neptune in your House of Transformation is about letting go, that doesn’t mean disappearing into the shadow of someone else’s ego, particularly as the God of the Sea is aligning nicely with the rock of Gibraltar twins, Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Work, who are asking you to change like a rock erodes; slow and steady, in no rush to give in, but going with the flow. This is about your confidence baby……as the saying goes, “Strength bides its time while weakness feels a need to act.”

 

Virgo- Lots of things around you are changing at this time but the question is, are you changing? With four major planets now at the top of your chart, Venus and Uranus in your House of Philosophy and the Sun and Mercury about to enter your House of Career, what are you currently doing to manifest some of those gold plated dreams you like to strategize about? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity and Neptune in  your House of Partnerships would suggest that you can’t conquer the world by yourself at this time, but on the other hand are you the best playmate you can be? Jupiter retrograde in your House of Foundations would indicate that some renovation is needed before you can start to build your stairway to heaven, yet are you willing to break your ego down to the studs to facilitate a complete overhaul of not only how the world sees you but how you see yourself? A word to the wise, our ability to accept help depends on whether or not we feel deserving. Chew on that for a while.

 

Libra- Mars has just crossed your Mid-Heaven so you may surprise a few people at this time by acting more like an Aries than a stereotypical Libra. Whether this is good or bad will have a lot to do with how deeply you may want something as both Venus and Uranus graze in the sign of Taurus and your House of Transformation. After all, a bull can be a lot like a cow until you wave a red flag in its face. Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Foundations have either taught you some patience over the last year or not and you’ll no doubt find out which when Neptune in your House of Daily Routines either delivers your expectations on time or fails to do so. The Lunar Arc this week will progress from your House of Communications (where it meets Jupiter retrograde) to your House of Creativity, meaning success for you now could be more about the process than the result. Ordinarily this would not be a problem for a Libra, so remember who you are.

 

Scorpio- With Venus and Uranus in your House of Partnerships activating Mars entering your House of Philosophy, the success of your interactions with others at this time will not be about acceptance or passivity, but rather about your ability to take action, meaning you’ll need to either extend an olive branch or take the tiger by the tail in order to break through some people’s ambivalence (or games). You’re in control now (whether you realize it or not) so leadership skills will be more valuable to you at this time than simple good manners or being agreeable. That’s not to say that Creativity won’t offer you an advantage as well, especially as Neptune in your House of Creativity aligns with Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Communications and you’re able to figure out ahead of time exactly what someone wants to hear and then find an inventive way not to placate them. To be so unapologetically real is a big step for you now, so take it, and enjoy a new bullshit free relationship with the world.

 

Sagittarius- Whatever you’re hoping to change right now should be helped along magnificently as Mars enters your House of Transformation, particularly if you’re looking to improve a process at work or perhaps even streamline your body. Doing it with someone else could also be to your advantage, as both the Sun and Mercury will be entering your House of Partnerships, so hire yourself an assistant or find an exercise buddy. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth aligning with Neptune in your House of Foundation is about fundamental change, and fundamental is a word combining both fun and mental, meaning that it is just as important to enjoy whatever you’re doing as it is to get the results you desire, especially if the whole process is supposedly to feel better about yourself. Meanwhile, Jupiter retrograde in your sign should help with the whole philosophical point of view that it is the journey not the destination that’s important. In other words, just keeping putting one foot in front of the other and you’ll eventually get there.

 

Capricorn- As Mars enters your House of Relationships and moves into an alignment with Venus and Uranus in your House of Romance, expect the unexpected this week, particularly in the legendary Battle of the Sexes. With Saturn and Pluto in your sign for a good long time now you have been reconstructing yourself for a while, so perhaps it’s finally time to get out there and see how you interact with the other kids? Of course someone special may stand out from the others, just try not to get nervous. They’re probably not following you around because they’re a hit man and someone’s taken a contract out on you, more likely it’s because they find you attractive. The Sun and Mercury moving into the social sign of Gemini and your House of Health may be trying to tell you that if you want to start feeling better about life, then perhaps you should try embracing it instead of requiring it to find you like a private detective. Jupiter retrograde behind the scenes is like a big dog who’s been raised with little dogs and doesn’t realize its size, meaning you should get out there and start practicing how to stretch into your true self. After all, you never know who might try to pet you while you’re working it out….. Woof! Woof!

 

Aquarius- As Mars enters your House of Work and aligns with both Venus and Uranus in your House of Home, this could be the perfect time to start those desperately needed repairs in your house or apartment that you’ve been avoiding.  Saturn and Pluto retrograde behind the scenes may reveal there’s a lot more wrong here than you realize, so the quicker you get to it the less likely it will be that something turns into an emergency. Neptune in your House of Self Worth could have a dual effect on you now, either making you lazy or inventive. Assuming that you’re not sick or unhappy, if getting motivated is a problem for you at this time, then simply let yourself be influenced by someone who is pressing you to get something done, you may end up thanking them later on for being an inadvertent muse. After all, whatever doesn’t annoy you lets you become complacent.

 

Pisces- You may have recently caught someone’s eye who thinks that you’re just the most…….So what do you plan to do about it? Mars entering your House of Romance and aligning with Venus and Uranus in your House of Communication is all about the Look of Love, so if you recognize it then let your imagination run around as scantily clad as possible, after all, with Neptune in your sign now romance should come as second nature to you. As the Sun and Mercury enter your Foundation Area you could be feeling as free as a bird or as flaky as a box of Kellogg’s, just don’t let yourself get swept away so far you forget who you are and what your real life responsibilities entail. Saturn and Pluto aligning with Neptune now could see you very close to completing a project that has been lingering for a long time, just make sure the aforementioned romance occurs only after you’ve crossed the finish line with any work that needs to be done.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #84 Weekly Horoscopes for 5/6-5/12, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 5/6-5/12, 2019

 

 Aries- Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Career are likely stalling your ambitions from moving forward at this time, which undoubtedly offends your usual full speed ahead mentality. Mercury and Uranus in your House of Self Worth will be conjunct by the middle of the week, no doubt fueling anxiety and motivating you to start venting on somebody if shit doesn’t start moving along the way it should. It is important now to try and remain patient and remember the old adage, “All things must pass.” Let Venus in your sign and Mars in your House of Communication give you a little tutorial on persuasion and charm, which will probably work out a lot better than smashing someone over the head with what you want them to do.

 

Taurus- Your usually placid nature could end up becoming quite anxiety ridden at this time as two very volatile planets that rule the nervous system, Mercury and Uranus, pass through your sign. The unsettledness of also having both Saturn and Pluto retrograde together in your House of Philosophy isn’t helping much, as those two will serve to either make you want to flee like a rat from a sinking ship or else set the house on fire for the insurance. Of course neither extreme is useful, so try and listen as charming Venus behind the scenes and Mars in your House of Self Worth attempt to motivate you to be resourceful and, most importantly, optimistic. Listen to Neptune in your House of Dreams as he aligns with a Cancer Moon midweek to try and steer you toward the high road…….and no, that doesn’t mean you should self medicate.

 

Gemini- Mercury and Uranus behind the scenes could motivate you to try and continue with a disingenuous strategy in regards to getting your way in a particular situation. At the same time, Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Transformation aligning with Neptune in your House of Public Image could end up making any subterfuges you attempt at this time appear quite transparent to anyone who is paying attention; in short, it’s likely that no one will believe your lies right now other than you, so a word to the wise…come clean and the mess in question may end up being manageable on the back end. Venus in your House of Groups and Mars in your sign will give you plenty of energy, although try to utilize this power slowly and steadily with a methodical plan rather than firing random shots in the air and hoping to hit something.

 

Cancer- The way things are now could be quite stressful for you as both Mercury and Uranus, the nervous system twins, come together to hold hands in your House of Groups. This doesn’t necessarily have to be like running into the two creepy little girls from “The Shining,” particularly if you can decide to focus instead on keeping a smile on your face, especially as Venus passes through your House of Public Image and aligns with Mars behind the scenes. If you can adopt a “kill them with kindness” attitude, then you just might stand a chance as Saturn and Pluto ravage your House of Open Enemies and cause some long term adversaries to shoot themselves in the foot instead of abusing you with their hubris. You will be having a personal New Moon this week as well, so let Neptune in your House of Philosophy lead you beyond a need for childish emotional safety to the higher ground of spiritual enlightenment. Namaste.

 

Leo- As a fixed sign you like things to be regular and dependable, although right now with Mercury and Uranus colliding in your House of Career things on the job are anything but, especially as the Moon in your sign during the week could see you losing control of yourself if someone else’s incompetence ends up foiling any of your well laid plans for the coming weekend. If you find yourself asking in exasperation, “what am I doing in this madhouse,” don’t expect either Saturn or Pluto in your House of Routines to tell you what you’d like to hear, particularly with Neptune in your House of Transformation waiting around for things to change on their own when you need to change them yourself.

 

Virgo- Have you had enough yet? Mercury and Uranus skidding into each other in your House of Philosophy would indicate that perhaps you have, particularly with Venus in your House of Transformation squaring off against both Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity, making it hard to continue doing the same thing over and over while hoping for a different outcome. On the other hand, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Foundations is aligning quite beneficially with Venus, meaning that perhaps the universal plan all along was that you’d need to get pissed off before you would actually act in your own best interest and do something different? Maybe up until now it was just easier to complain and remain complacent? As the Sun aligns with Neptune in your House of Relationships (and Open Enemies) perhaps now you’re seeing exactly how a partner has been manipulating you by acting like they’re so disappointed all the time?

 

Libra- With the Sun, Mercury, and Uranus all going through your House of Transformation, expect the unexpected this week. Venus in your House of Relationships will be aligning with lucky Jupiter as it retrogrades through your House of Communication, meaning that perhaps there is a good chance that a seed you sowed sometime in the past may actually bear some surprising fruit. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Foundations have been sounding the death knell on the old you and the outmoded circumstances of your past, so is it really a surprise that eventually a dark night of the soul would turn into a brand new day as the world turns? Mars in your House of Philosophy would indicate that if something does unexpectedly change for the better, you’d do well to be ready to hop aboard that tramp steamer as it sets sail to some unexpected destination where the new you awaits!

 

Scorpio- Having both Uranus and Mercury conjunct in your House of Relationships now might mean that somebody close may surprise you this week, which could be either a good thing or a bad thing. Neptune in your House of Creativity and Fun aligning with Mercury could mean that you’ll weather this surprise with the necessary aplomb, although you may still be weirded out by the circumstances anyway. Venus in your House of Health aligning nicely with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Self Worth could have you finally understanding the cumulative effects of a course you’ve been pursuing for a while, meaning that where once your life had seemed rudderless, now you’re following a definite course due north to feeling better. As the Lunar Arc transits across the top of your chart expect to be a little more in demand than usual, although over the weekend you may just want to do your own thing despite the good intentions of others……No worries.

 

Sagittarius- Jupiter retrograde in your sign this week will be aligning with charming Venus in your House of Creativity and Romance, so don’t be surprised if an old flame resurfaces with a new box of matches. Of course at the same time Venus will also be squaring both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Self Worth, therefore, make sure that this blast from the past isn’t looking to burn down your self esteem again rather than toasting marshmallows next to a cozy fire. Mercury and Uranus together in your House of Routines could be the writing on the wall that this aforementioned individual will be a disruptive influence indeed, although that may be just what you need to determine once and for all whose interests should start coming first in your interactions with others. You can do bad all by yourself.

 

Capricorn- Responsibilities, responsibilities, responsibilities, so what else is new? Mars in your House of Routines aligning with Venus at your Foundation may have you craving an escape from your perceived servitude, although Jupiter retrograde behind the scenes aligning with the aforementioned couple might try to suggest that it’s not an escape you need but rather peace of mind. Neptune in your House of Thinking and Short Journey’s will likely suggest meditation or some other esoteric modality and you should probably give it a try if it seems like it might help. Why? Because as Mercury and Uranus bump into each other in your House of Creativity you could encounter a bizarre challenge that has transcendence written all over it if you can just see the forest for the trees. “Somewhere over the rainbow” could be somewhere inside of yourself if you can just manage to experience your mind for once as something other than a dictionary of pejorative terms.

 

Aquarius- As the Sun, Mercury, and Uranus all pass through your House of Home and Family, you may find yourself feeling very anxious about the security of you and yours. Of course it sucks to feel this way, but with Mars in your House of Creativity, Venus in your House of Communication, and Jupiter retrograde in your House of Dreams and Groups, perhaps the only way your hopes for safety can come true is if you are motivated to follow your intuition out of the box of fearful logic that has you trapped in a past that no longer exists? Of course Saturn and Pluto retrograde have a lot to do with this negative motivation, so rather than partaking in it again, why don’t you instead recognize how doing the same thing over and over hasn’t gotten the result you wanted? No doubt faith will have more than a little bit to do with your ability to change, so as Neptune enters your House of Self Worth be ready to turn paranoia into perceptiveness with a little help from your friends.

 

Pisces- Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Groups squaring Venus in your House of Self Worth could have you feeling very insecure about being judged harshly in the future, or even failing to attain a goal you’ve set for yourself. On the other hand, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career  aligning nicely with Venus would probably indicate that you’re better prepared than you think for any challenges that may be awaiting you. That’s not to say though that shit won’t get weird, or even crazy, particularly with Mercury and Uranus joining together in your House of Communication and local activities. The trick here is to realize that state of mind is everything, especially as Neptune in your sign lines up with a very practical Sun in Taurus and your House of Thinking. As a famous Occultist used to say, “It’s all in your head, you just don’t know how big your head is.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #83 Weekly Horoscopes for 4/29-5/5, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 4/29-5/5, 2019

 

 Aries- Mercury and Venus in your sign now aligning with Mars in your House of Communication will have you schmoozing with anyone who’ll listen, although with Saturn and Pluto both retrograde in your House of Career don’t necessarily expect anything substantial to come from all your networking. Jupiter is retrograde as well in your House of Philosophy and for a brief time he will align with Mercury, meaning that for all the attention you’re trying to garner around what you’re doing, perhaps you should instead consider revamping any upcoming presentations so that they’re more likely to express who you truly are rather than what you think others want to hear With individualistic Uranus, the Sun, and a New Moon in your House of Self Worth, this is a time when you should just be yourself without any apologies……Do you and do it proud!

 

Taurus- This week the New Moon is in your sign along with iconoclastic Uranus, meaning that this is a time for you to move forward into some new territory, whatever that may entail. Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Philosophy represent the writing on the wall in regards to what no longer is working out the way you’d like, so as they both align with Neptune in your House of Dreams why don’t you try to let circumstances influence you toward considering something completely different rather than just a minor variation on a familiar theme that you’ve become far too comfortable with? Mercury and Venus behind the scenes lining up with Mars in your House of Self Worth could serve to stimulate some unexpected impatience at this time that may very well likely end up turning into a real itch for adventure that needs to be scratched…..So, what are you waiting for?

 

Gemini- Mars in your sign now is a real motivator and as he aligns with Mercury and Venus in your House of Dreams be willing to step out of your comfort zone. Saturn and Pluto are doing their own unique brand of Chaos Magick in your House of Transformation, so be willing to accept fortuitous accidents instead of bemoaning that your expectations haven’t been met. Neptune in your House of Career squaring Venus is a very definite warning not to sh*t where you eat, so steer clear of that sexy new stranger at work; there may be lots of overtime, but it won’t pay. The New Moon this week will be behind the scenes for you and with rebellious Uranus there as well be careful not to bite your nose off to spite your face just because someone pisses you off. Take a deep breath and move on, or else hold your breath to get what you want until you pass out, it’s up to you.

 

Cancer- With this week’s New Moon in your House of Dreams it may be time for you to re-evaluate your hopes and aspirations for the future. Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Partnerships will no doubt have you reviewing past disappointments, however, try not to let that get you down, although that may be tough with Mars behind the scenes still squaring Neptune in your House of Philosophy and making it seem like a real uphill climb just to be able to hold the line. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Work could be a bummer if you let it, although on the other hand it could also serve as a boost if you’re willing to focus on your Health instead of whatever you don’t have. After all, health is wealth so make sure you’re not taking it for granted. As far as the other circumstances you’re worrying about, that’ll all eventually change, just like it always does.

Leo- The New Moon this week is in your House of Career, which could signal a new beginning, especially since Uranus is also in your House of Career, although in the case of Uranus a new beginning could be something radical like an explosion rather than something benign, like an unexpected new dessert being served for dinner. Either way be ready for a change, particularly with Saturn and Pluto both retrograde in your House of Routines acting like a pair of terrorists regarding anything boring or easy in your life. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Creativity opposing Mars in your House of Dreams is likely asking you to reconsider what you have been giving up in exchange for safety and, even more important, what has this compromise been keeping you safe from? The unexpected? Yourself? As I said at the beginning get ready for something different. Different is good. Got it?

 

Virgo- Both the New Moon and Uranus in your House of Philosophy may have you concerned about just how stable your life is on various levels. With Neptune in your House of Partnerships squaring Mars in your House of Career and Public Image, some people may start judging you very harshly based on the company you keep. If you can’t understand how some of these characters you hob nob with are a problem then you may be in for a surprise, especially as Jupiter retrograde begins moving backwards into an opposition with Mars creating blowback from someone you can’t afford to alienate. Venus and Mercury in your House of Transformation are about transparency, so stop trying to tell people what isn’t their business and instead start acting like you have nothing to hide. If you’re clean they’ll just shut up, if you’re not then you’d better take the fifth and try to find the best lawyer you can.

 

Libra- The New Moon this week will be in your House of Transformation loosely aligning with Neptune in your House of Routines, meaning that you could gain a valuable insight now into something that you’ve been overlooking. Saturn and Pluto at your Foundation have been trying to get you to see the importance of changing your perspective on life, although like most folks nothing short of a crisis will make you pay attention to something you’d rather not deal with. But don’t get all depressed, whatever is about to change will be for the better if you’re willing to accept it and take action. Mars in your House of Philosophy should help to motivate you as Jupiter retrograde in your House of Communication brings you good news about something you may have invested in a while back and forgotten about. If luck starts falling from the trees make sure you’re paying attention so you can bend down and pick it up.

 

Scorpio- Mars going through your House of Transformation and squaring Neptune in your House of Creativity could be blinding you now in regards to the possibilities of things better in your life. On the other hand, the New Moon in your House of Relationships is having a much more beneficial association with Neptune, so if you can come out form under that little rain cloud that’s been following you around you’ll see that you have a really great support system that’s not going to let you fade away into a dark little cocoon of depression. Mercury and Venus in your House of Health are like wise having a much better relationship with Mars than Neptune is, so if you’re willing to do what it takes to make things better then you’ll probably earn the privilege to look back on this time and understand it was the Universe showing you what you were made of, rather than the end of the good times.

 

Sagittarius- The New Moon will be in your House of Health this week aligning with Neptune at your Foundation, meaning that if you’re willing to make the effort then you could manage  to lose weight, or get into better shape, or lick an uncomfortable malady that’s been plaguing you for a while. The operative term here is willing, especially with Mercury and Mars aligning in your Houses of Creativity and Partnerships respectively, which undoubtedly together speak to seeking help through a mentor or support group to aid in starting to bring about some beneficial changes into your life. Jupiter is your ruling planet and it is expansive by nature, but since it’s retrograde now, you need to look at this time in your life as a period for reflection rather than answers, so that when Jupiter eventually goes direct your naturally adventurous nature can move forward unfettered.

 

Capricorn- The New Moon this week is in your House of Creativity and it will be aligning with Neptune in your House of Communication. This is a particularly visionary influence, so if you’ve got any bright new ideas it’s very important that you put them to paper, or canvas, or into photoshop, or wherever, in order to have them on record for further possible development in the future. Mercury and Venus racing through your Foundation area should make you particularly resourceful at this time, especially since they are both aligning with Mars in your House of Routines and providing a surplus of energy for just about anything you want to do. Of course Saturn and Pluto are still in your sign and since they’re both retrograde now this is undoubtedly an editing face in your life, therefore, be willing to change what needs to be changed in order for one of those visions we started out discussing to manifest into a reality.

 

Aquarius- The New Moon at your Foundation will be aligning with Neptune in your House of Self Worth, which means that you can afford to reveal your softer side at this time. Now some may be surprised by this sensitive side of you, but how do you feel about it? Particularly since you’ve been cultivating this “badass” image ever since Saturn and Pluto have been shredding your ego behind the scenes and you’ve misinterpreted it by feeling a need to overcompensate. Mercury and Venus in your House of Communication is making you a silver tongued devil now and as they both line up with Mars in your House of Creativity, you could end up really waxing poetic in spite of yourself. I guess what I’m trying to say is that the world will only be surprised you’re a mensch if you’re surprised by it. Are you?

 

Pisces- Some recent challenges may have you feeling on shaky ground as Mars at your Foundation squares Neptune in your sign. The antidote for this should be the New Moon in your House of Communication aligning with Neptune in the form of some good news or a lucky break that allows you some extra breathing room in regards to a deadline for an assignment or an overdue bill. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Groups are now both retrograde, so it is important that you tie up any remaining loose ends, especially with Jupiter also retrograde in your House of Career. This is a cycle in your life that is not yet about an end or a beginning, but rather about how comfortable you are with yourself within the vacuum of any given moment as it unfolds. As the saying goes, “Be Here Now,” and you will always be exactly where you should be.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #82 Weekly Horoscopes for 4/22-4/28, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 4/22-4/28, 2019

 

 Aries- Mercury and Venus in your sign should make you a bit of a chatty Kathy this week, especially since Mars (your ruling planet) is also in your House of Communication. At the same time, the Sun will be conjunct with Uranus in your House of Self Worth, perhaps transforming an initial desire for chit-chat into some downright outspokenness. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Public Image is about loss and gain, so maybe it’s about time for you to shed an inherited image that is safe and exchange it for one that represents the truth of who you are? Neptune behind the scenes could have you doubting yourself and worrying if anyone could ever love you as you really are, but there’s only one way to find out, and with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Philosophy don’t necessarily assume things can’t or won’t change from what they were.

 

Taurus- With the Sun and Uranus currently in your sign you may seem more rebellious than those around you are used to, however, with Mercury and Venus behind the scenes your desire is not to simply disrupt things, but to actually create a better situation for everyone involved. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy and Neptune in your House of Groups are the brain trust and humanitarian force behind your recent uncharacteristic aggressiveness, and as they work together be willing to push the envelope in a matter that you’re convinced needs to change. You’re the visionary here so don’t let someone else with an ax to grind talk you into thinking you need to examine your conscience. “I see said the blind man, but he couldn’t see at all.”

 

Gemini- Mars in your sign is making you feel invincible and Mercury in the aggressive sign of Aries is probably causing you to shoot your mouth off more than you should. I know you’re feeling it, but don’t be surprised if there’s some scorching blow back as a result. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation will require you to be responsible for everything you say, which should not be taken lightly, especially with Neptune in your House of Public Image creating an air of suspicion as to what your actual motives may be.  The Sun and Uranus behind the scenes could be either an “I don’t give a shit” attitude on your part, or someone else’s “Screw You” sentiments, neither one though bodes well for a stable and balanced future if you stay on your current course.

 

Cancer- The landscape all around you is changing so it’s time to change your M.O. as well. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Partnerships is about letting shit go and building a new future, while Neptune in your House of Philosophy is about enlightenment, meaning you’re no longer the person you were so don’t go thinking things will always turn out the way they once did. Mercury and Venus in your House of Career should motivate you to get out there and start looking for opportunities, while at the same time the Sun and Uranus in your House of Groups will be motivating you to get out there and proudly “Do You”…..whatever that may mean. Mars behind the scenes could be either a distraction or a motivating force, so let’s hope Jupiter retrograde in your House of Work will help you to understand your recent experiences so that you’ll be able to use their lessons wisely.

 

Leo- What do you want to be when you grow up? You may be doing one thing to pay the bills, while at the same time dreaming or dabbling in something else to satisfy your soul. With the Sun and Uranus in your House of Career, now would be a good time to explore a secret (or not so secret) passion and see if you can make a buck at it. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Work will prevent you from getting too crazy with this, while at t he same time Neptune in your House of Transformation will help you to explore the possibility of experimenting with a vision in order to see if it’s a possibility for the future. The mantra of Mercury and Venus in your House of Philosophy will be, “Why not?” while at the same time Mars in your House of Dreams will be saying, “Go for it.” With that much popular opinion in favor for trying something new, how can you not run your idea up the flagpole and see if anyone salutes it?

 

Virgo- If it feels like a fog has enveloped you and a partner so that almost nothing seems clear anymore in your interactions then it probably means that Neptune in your House of Relationships is calling in its I.O.U’s. If you would hope to keep this situation under your control, then communication will be imperative. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Romance were initially the culprits who brought this whole subject up, although now that it’s in crisis mode these two will also offer the insights to deal with any issues that you thought Neptune would help you sweep under the rug. Mercury and Venus in your House of Transformation is about directly acknowledging how you and your partner are different and why this has secretly annoyed both of you to no end. It’s strange that things have gotten to this point, especially since your differences were initially what drew you to one another. It’s a thin line between love and hate, so try and be mathematical and imagine an infinite line…..Then work to stay on it.

 

Libra- The Sun and Uranus in your House of Transformation are compelling you now to move forward into uncharted territories, and although you are not entirely sure of where it is you’re going, somehow it feels right…..or does it? If change brought what we already knew then it wouldn’t be change, would it? Saturn and Pluto have been rebuilding you from the inside out for a while and Neptune has been disappearing things out of your life like a fist when you open your hand, but to what end? Who’s to say, although with Mercury and Venus in your House of Partnerships and Mars in your House of Philosophy you should be willing to let yourself be influenced by situations and ideas that don’t seem so cut and dry in order to develop some new ideas of your own. “Cha, cha, cha, changes……turn and face the strain.”

 

Scorpio- As Mars passes through your House of Transformation and squares Neptune in your House of Fun, it would be very easy for you now to fall into a funk about your current circumstances. On the other hand, Mercury and Venus in your House of Health and the Sun and Uranus in your House of Relationships are working overtime together to counteract any hang dog attitude you might currently possess by instead providing an antidote of love and support that should end up lasting you far longer than whatever challenges you may be currently facing. In addition, Saturn and Pluto are pitching in to help you rebuild in this unstable time as they transform the illusions of Neptune and Mars into the brick and mortar of a new life that lies ahead. “Do not go gentle into that good night, rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

 

Sagittarius- Jupiter retrograde now in your sign marks a time when reflection on certain matters would serve you well. Let’s begin with Neptune transiting through your House of Home and Family. This could be a particularly insidious influence, especially since it is now squaring Mars in your House of Relationships, meaning that it would be very important for you  to consider how your family’s demands over the years has influenced your current relationship (or lack thereof). Contrast that with Mercury and Venus going through your House of Fun and Romance, which are in beneficial aspect to the aforementioned Mars in your Relationships area, and maybe the time has come for you to acknowledge all you’ve denied yourself because of another’s needs? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth are there for you as well if you decide you want to experiment with some tough love (for them) and TLC (for you). Do it and it will be so.

 

Capricorn- I’m going to keep it upbeat this week, I promise. Let’s start off with the Sun and Uranus in your House of Creativity and Romance. So, what do you want, creative freedom or a stimulating fling? Either is within the realm of possibilities with these two if you’re willing to get out there and engage. On the other hand, Jupiter retrograde behind the scenes may have you feeling a little guilty about indulging yourself, but since that’s your usual M.O. all Mercury and Venus would have to say to that is “boring” as they align with virile Mars in your House of Health to promote the age old maxim, “All work and no play makes Jack (Jill) a dull boy (girl). The Moon will begin it’s Lunar Arc this week in your sign, but as the days go by it will progress into your Houses of Self Worth and Communication respectively, thereby motivating you to get out there and engage, which brings us back to where we started with the Sun and Uranus…….Party!!!

 

Aquarius- You usually have lots of ideas, but this week with Mars in your House of Creativity aligning with Mercury and Venus in your House of Communication the time has come for you to focus on one thing and run with it. Of course Neptune in your House of Self Worth will make the argument not to limit yourself, but the reality is that the time has come for you to deal with the Psychology of how you avoid testing your confidence by being unwilling to focus on one thing at a time and then seeing it through. Deep, huh? The Sun and Uranus going through your House of Foundations could help a lot with this, but of course you’ll have to face what the nature of rebellion has really been about for you; needing to be yourself, or needing the attention of others? Go ahead, sit down, would you like a glass of water? I know this is a lot.

 

Pisces- Your desire for change is strong right now, almost as strong as your fear of it. Which of the two will win? Mars at your Foundation is shaking things up, but as long as it squares Neptune in your sign you won’t leave your comfort zone. On the other hand, Mercury and Venus in your House of Self Worth are tickling you and creating an itch that must be scratched. The Sun and Uranus together in Taurus now are a revolutionary pair, however revolution for its own sake is madness, there must also be an overall holistic need to change and then the subsequent turmoil becomes the process of natural selection instead of the process of destruction. Jupiter in your House of Career has you dreaming (and longing) but since the King of the Planets is retrograde now, perhaps he’s urging you to err on the side of caution and be patient for the time being with the process of change rather than the mere fantasies results?

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #80 Weekly Horoscopes for 4/8-4/14, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 4/8-4/14, 2019

 

 Aries- To paraphrase a well known classic, “It is the best of times, it is the worst of times.” As the Sun passes through your sign to align with Jupiter in your House of Philosophy it brings high hopes, while at the same time it is also squaring Saturn and Pluto in your House of Career to bring both challenges and change. The presence of Mercury, Venus, and Neptune behind the scenes could contribute to either your illusions or enlightenment, depending of course on whether your sense of self comes from within or if it is merely a reflection of the current fashions and judgments of others. Uranus in your House of Self Worth is a knee jerk reaction waiting to happen, which Mars in your House of Communication could turn into a notorious incident if you’re so inclined. As the Lunar Arc travels across your Houses of Foundation and Creativity, try to see the forest for the trees when it comes to your actions and consider the saying, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Salud!

 

Taurus- Jupiter going station/retrograde in your House of Transformation and aligning with the Sun behind the scenes could mean that the initial excitement of a recent situation is about to turn into a considerably less glorious responsibility in the near future.  Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy have been trying to tell you, “be careful what you wish for,” but since you’ve gotten what you wanted now you’re  going to need them to be your maintenance team. Just make sure you don’t allow Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Groups to make you too much of a doormat. Just because some folks told you what you wanted to hear to get you interested, doesn’t mean they can take advantage of you once you’ve signed on the dotted line. In the meantime, I hope you like surprises because Uranus in your sign should be bringing home some doozies.. When all is said and done though, Mars in your House of Self Worth could be your best friend right now, as he gives you all the mojo you’ll likely need to swim this “English Channel” you have waiting.

 

Gemini- Mars entering your sign will likely provide a burst of energy, the question is where will you direct this power? Jupiter going station/retrograde in your House of Relationships and aligning with the Sun in your House of Dreams could be trying to tell you to pay attention to an association with someone important that you’ve let fall by the wayside. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation have been trying to warn you of coming changes for a while, but now that they’re also aligning with both Mercury and Venus in your House of Public Image and Career make sure you don’t take anything for granted in regards to your future prospects and/or your reputation. “What have you done for me lately” may sound callous, but at least now others will know what it felt like when they blew you off. Payback can be a b*tch, so get ready to move ahead.

 

Cancer- As the Sun passes through your House of Career and aligns with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Work, expect some of the recent drama on the job to subside. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Partnerships has likely changed your tune regarding how much responsibility you’re willing to accept without knowing what’s in it for you, while at the same time Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Philosophy have inspired you to realize the difference between what you can change and what’s supposed to change you. Unfortunately, Uranus in your House of Groups will likely bring more lessons along this line as some unexpected craziness enters into your sphere. Go with these annoying developments as best you can and try not to get too caught up in thinking you could have avoided any of it; Uranus just rolls that way. Mars behind the scenes could inspire you to do some research and explore new possibilities, so try and look at this new motivation as the antidote for Uranus and go for it.

 

Leo- If you have been harboring any aspirations to do something different with your life, the Sun aligning with Jupiter going station/retrograde in your House of Creativity could mean that this is the time when that hope either dies forever, or else you finally get your ass in gear and decide to do something about it. With Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in watery Pisces and your House of Death and Transformation, you may have come to this realization in a painful way, nonetheless, you’ve seen what is necessary, now what do you want to do next? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Routines are there if you have to figure out how to make time for what you’d like to do, no matter how busy (or tired) you profess to be, while Uranus in your House of Career represents the part of you that’s “mad as hell and isn’t going to take it anymore.” As Mars traverses your House of Dreams dare to believe that you may be as talented as you’ve always dreamed…Now prove it!

 

Virgo- If you have been contemplating any home improvements or are even considering moving, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Home aligning with the Sun in your House of Transformation could mean that this is the time to either restructure or change your humble abode. Saturn and Pluto together in your House of Creativity is like having your own private contractors, so trust your ideas on what you want, but more importantly, believe that you can make it happen. Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Partnership could indicate that you may need to seek outside help in manifesting your visions and stop looking for approval from an unsupportive partner. With this in mind, let Uranus in your House of Philosophy inspire you to do something different than what hasn’t worked in the past and let Mars in your House of Public Image show the world you can be a mover and shaker on your own terms.

 

Libra- As Jupiter in your House of Communication goes station/retrograde and aligns with the Sun in your House of Partnerships, you may end up hearing from someone out of the past who can help you with a current problem. Saturn and Pluto at the bottom of your chart have been setting the stage for some big changes, however, sometimes auspicious circumstances can sneak in the back door instead of barging through the front. Mercury, Venus, and Neptune are all passing through your House of Work so let yourself be influenced by unexpected circumstances; you may be a lot better at improvising and flying by the seat of your pants than you ever suspected. Uranus in your House of Transformation and Mars in your House of Long Distance Communication may help to transport you to the exact place outside of your expectations that you need to be in order to succeed. Go with the flow!

 

Scorpio- Jupiter going retrograde this week and aligning with the Sun in your House of Health could make you feel overwhelmed if you have been under the weather. Mars in your House of Transformation should help you to keep up with all these new changes, although as he starts to approach a square with a stellium of planets in Pisces you may be longing for an escape. Where to go? Uranus in your House of Relationships may see you receiving an unexpected (and much needed) invitation from a friend to get away from your life for a while. You may not be able to go to Bali, but anywhere that would bring you to a different place in your head would be a welcome respite. Bon voyage!

 

Sagittarius- Jupiter going station/retrograde this week in your sign and aligning with the Sun in your House of Fun may be trying to tell you it’s time for a vacation. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth have been keeping your nose to the grindstone forever, but with Mercury, Venus, and Neptune crossing the bottom of your chart it looks like it’s time for you to sneak out for a little par-ty, if you get my drift. If you don’t, Uranus going through your House of Work and Mars going through your House of Enemies could see some crap go down at work that will find you saying to yourself, “I should of listened to Mr. Saturn and cashed in some of my time….now I gotta put up with this shit!”

 

Capricorn- If you have been putting off facing some issues either at home or within yourself, consider taking the time now to fix whatever it is that’s broke as Jupiter goes station/retrograde and aligns with the Sun. For a while now Saturn and Pluto in your sign have been putting the weight of the world on your shoulders and as they align with Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Communication this may be the time for you to find someone to speak with about how you feel, especially since problems tend to always seem bigger if we keep them bottled up inside. Uranus in your House of Creativity and Mars in your House of Health would further suggest that some form of Art Therapy or, for that matter, any sort of class would be an excellent way to de-stress and put things in perspective. In other words, take the time to do yourself a favor and try something new.

 

Aquarius- With Jupiter going through your House of Groups over the last few months it has probably felt like you’ve been on stage non-stop, 24/7. If that’s the case, then when the King of the Planets goes retrograde this week you might want to try to spend some time with those you’ve been neglecting. Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Self Worth will likely have you feeling more vulnerable than usual and as these planets align with Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes, getting together with loved ones at this time may just be about you needing them rather than their needing you out there protecting them from anything. Unpredictable Uranus going through your House of Family may furnish some surprises, particularly if you end up realizing that your home is your ballast rather than your career. With that said, take this respite you’ve managed to arrange as a time solely for fun and trust that your work will be waiting when you get back.

 

Pisces- If you’ve been on a roll as of late you might see things start to wind down this week as Jupiter goes station/retrograde in your House of Career. Of course you may not be happy about this, especially as Jupiter aligns with the Sun in your House of Self Worth and squares Mercury and Venus in your sign. You can’t be “on” all the time, so instead of taking this recent down cycle as an indication that maybe you’re losing it, instead look at this period as a time to re-evaluate and rejuvenate yourself in order to come back and kick some serious new ass in the coming weeks. Saturn and Pluto might very well have some constructive criticism to give about revamping your plans, so make sure you slow down and give them a listen; in terms of your long-term success you’ll be glad you did.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #79 Weekly Horoscopes for 4/1-4/7, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 4/1-4/7, 2019

 

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

 

 

 

Aries- With Mercury, Venus, and Neptune all behind the scenes for you this week in the ultra-sensitive sign of Pisces you could find yourself feeling a lot more reflective and poetic than usual. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Public Image have been throwing you a lot of challenges as of late, which no doubt has transformed how you’ve been feeling about yourself. Jupiter in your House of Philosophy will have you pondering all of this and more as a New Moon in your sign compels you to move upward and onward through the anxiety and frustration that rebellious Uranus in rigid Taurus is causing in your House of Self Worth. If all this seems like it’s too much and you’re looking for an escape, Mars in your House of Local Affairs can no doubt furnish you with the necessary distractions. However, if you’re more concerned about finding the real you then I’m afraid you’re going to need to wade through a little more insecurity first. As the song goes, “The Harder they come, the harder they fall, one and all……”

 

Taurus- Now that unpredictable Uranus has entered your sign and will be there for the next 7 years, get ready to be dragged kicking and screaming out of your comfort zone. The New Moon in Aries behind the scenes this week will likely affect you like waving a red bandana in front of a Bull, but before you come charging out with your head down, realize that blindly reacting to circumstances out of annoyance can lead to some very ignoble outcomes. After all, it’s the matador who usually wins the bullfight while the bull ends up dead. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy are the dynamic duo that have been preparing you for this coming psychological revolution in your life, supported in turn by wise Jupiter in your House of Transformation. “All a man can do when death smiles at him is smile back….” If you can just manage to breathe and calm down for a second Neptune, Mercury, and Venus in your House of Groups are precisely the teachers who can show you how to relax and go with the flow…….So, with all due respect, shut up and listen.

 

Gemini- Neptune, Mercury, and Venus in your House of Public Image aligning with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation are all no doubt bringing out your most chameleonic tendencies (which are considerable) however, try not to thumb your nose too much at your detractors now. The New Moon in aggressive Aries and your House of Groups could see a concerted effort by those who are not fans to not only bring you down, but to throw your ass out as well. Mars in your sign will make you want to come out swinging and no doubt Uranus behind the scenes would concur. With that in mind, watch your mouth and try to make sure that whomever it is you think you’re fighting doesn’t turn out to be yourself. Biting off that nose of yours to spite your face would be stupid, stupid, stupid.

 

Cancer- This week’s New Moon in impetuous Aries will be in your House of Public Image, which could mean it’s makeover time!!! Mars behind the scenes will likely serve as a major motivating factor behind this attitude, while at the same time rebellious Uranus in your House of Groups will make it hard for you to give up all those bad habits that you just love to engage in with your friends. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Friends (and enemies) will probably be asking you to review all those who currently have security clearances in your life, after all, you don’t want your fondest hopes and dreams being dashed by a hater camouflaged as a besty who encourages you to burn bridges today and worry about shit tomorrow. Neptune, Mercury, and Venus in your House of Philosophy will be all about love, however, make sure you’re planting those seeds in your own garden before you worry about undermining yourself to please somebody else.

 

Leo- With the New Moon in Aries in your House of Philosophy and Neptune, Mercury, and Venus all in the mutable, touchy-feely sign of Pisces and your House of Transformation, the notion of changing anything in your life now probably seems like a somewhat cool but distant idea. Be careful of making “should I or shouldn’t I” your mantra, especially with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Daily Routines keepin’ it real with responsibility after responsibility and Uranus in your House of Career throwing you curveball after curveball until you can hit the junk. You need to do something besides maintaining your status quo, especially when the users and takers have you hamstrung with their quid pro quo. Jupiter in your House of Creativity won’t be there forever, so this is the time for you to think big and bust a move…and I don’t mean on the Playstation!!!

 

Virgo- This week’s fiery New Moon in Aries will be in your House of Transformation, while at the same time you’ll be having Neptune, Mercury, and Venus pirouetting through your House of Relationships next door. Translation? Don’t let a partner distract you from what you know you need to do for yourself. Have your radar up and all your feelers out; if they can’t bully you then they’ll try to manipulate you by whining or crying or whatever other evil, pathetic device they can come up with. Uranus in your House of Philosophy will give you two choices on how to deal with this kind of bullshit; stress yourself out or do what you gotta do. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity have been preparing you for this so be willing to kamikaze your way to your dreams if necessary. That means if they try to make it them or the relationship, pull the pin on the grenade because I have news for you; they…..ain’t……going…..anywhere. This is a power struggle and you have the power! Get it? Got it? Good!!!

 

Libra- Saturn and Pluto at the root of your chart have been shaking your world like an earthquake for the past few months and now Neptune, Mercury, and Venus are making your daily life seem like the funhouse hall of mirrors in “The Lady From Shanghai.” There are two ways this situation can be dealt with; you can destroy all the mirrors until you hit what’s real, or you can have fun, after all, it is a fun house and it’s not like you won’t eventually find your way out, right? The New Moon in your House of Partnerships would suggest help is on the way, so take a moment to think about how whoever is coming to your aid would react to ton of broken glass? See what I mean? Uranus in your House of Transformation would indicate you’re on the verge of crossing between worlds and Mars in your House of Philosophy would suggest that you should march proudly forward. You’re about to get the life you’ve earned……Now if that scares you, take a moment to think about exactly what it is you’ve been doing….and why?

 

Scorpio- We are body, mind, and spirit. This week’s New Moon will be in your House of Health and the martial sign of Aries, that’s your body. Neptune, Mercury, and Venus will be in the transcendental sign of Pisces and your House of Creativity, that’s your spirit. Saturn and Pluto, the planets of revolution, will be in your Third House and that’s your mind. You may be facing a specific challenge now in your life, but the possible rewards you could gain across the board by addressing this problem as a full spectrum issue affecting body, mind, and spirit will likely yield an outcome you never would have dreamed of. There is a popular saying, “The Buddha is in a blade of grass,” meaning the possibility for Buddhahood exists everywhere. If you can understand that then you will probably also realize that the Buddha exists within all of us as well. The trick to realizing your Buddhahood is to deal with your immediate reality as something that needs to be addressed by your body, mind, and spirit together. Do what you need to do, fully, and it will create the Buddha you were meant to be.

 

Sagittarius- Sag is an outgoing sign, but it is also an eccentric one, meaning that you Centaurs can be known to hide. With a lot of conflicting influences going on now in the heavens you might be thinking that the safest place for you to be is behind the scenes….wrong! Neptune, Mercury, and Venus at your Foundation would be encouraging you to stay out of sight, however the New Moon in Aries and your House of Fun is yelling “Party!!!” Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth represent that sense of ambition you just can’t keep down, while Uranus in your House of Routines is likely telling you the status quo is bullshit, be a rebel. Of course this cross talk is confusing, but within chaos is an implicate order we just haven’t recognized yet and the only way to get a glimpse of the method behind the madness is to engage. In other words, get out there……because if you don’t, as Jimi Hendrix would say, “It’s Comin’ to gitcha”!!!!!

 

Capricorn- Saturn and Pluto in your sign now are probably causing you to want to keep things under wraps, but just like in the Handmaiden’s Tale there is a revolution brewing under the surface that can’t be denied. The New Moon in Aries at the bottom of your chart is setting the detonations, while Jupiter behind the scenes in his home sign of Sagittarius is passing out the revolutionary leaflets. Uranus in your House of Creativity is organizing the guerilla fighters and Neptune, Mercury, and Venus in your House of Communication are composing the anthem that will inflame people’s hearts and make them take to the streets. So how do you feel about this? Yay, or Meh….? You’re a tough sign, but do you want to continue to suffer in responsible silence or would you rather risk something in glorious uncertainty? I know, I know, you always get the tough questions.

 

Aquarius- If you’ve been holding back saying something that really needs to be expressed then I have some bad news; nothing is going to get better until you come clean. Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes are constantly reminding you what’s at risk if you buck the status quo, while on the other hand Neptune, Mercury, and Venus in your House of Self Worth represent your conscience that just won’t shut up. Likely it will all come down to the New Moon in Aries in your House of Communication, which will probably make you speak your peace with the same sense of urgency like being hungry makes one want to eat. Mars in your House of Creativity will also have a big role to play in this because, let’s face it, you’re bored with the rules and when it gets to that point, well, you just can’t help yourself, can you? Make sure you have the proper accelerant before you set that bridge on fire…. And oh yeah, an escape route too.

 

Pisces- Saturn and Pluto in your House of Dreams have held your nose to the grindstone for a long time now and even though you’re getting closer to a much anticipated goal you can’t help but feel a little ambivalent about the whole thing. Why is that? Having Neptune and Mercury so close together in your sign now doesn’t help, if anything those two are known for their mixed messages and vague, mirage-like ideas. The new Moon in Aries is also contributing to all this, but rather from a rebellious “do I really want this” point of view. Add to that Uranus in your House of Communication making you edgy so that you don’t want to talk about anything and, well, what is there to do? Finish what you started, that’s when things will begin to feel new and exciting.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #77 Weekly Horoscopes for 3/18-3/24, 2019

 

Weekly Horoscopes for 3/18-3/24, 2019

 

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

 

Aries- The Spring Equinox should arrive with a real bang this year as it provides all you Rams out there with a Full Moon in Libra on the same day. The tug of war between “I” and “We” should reach epic proportions as the need to charge forward and the need to be in balance ruthlessly push and pull each other back and forth. Jupiter in your House of Philosophy and the ego driven sign of Sagittarius will align with Venus in your House of Dreams and the collective sign of Aquarius, bringing you both audacity and luck. You will no doubt be feeling your oats at this time, however, if you are as crafty as you are ambitious then you will no doubt realize that you can’t do everything by yourself. Listen to Saturn and Pluto in your House of Career and be willing to compromise for a greater good, yet at the same time realize, while there is no “I” in team, there is a “Me.” Go for it.

 

Taurus- As the old Jefferson Airplane song used to go, “You’re only as pretty as you feel,” which should be aptly illustrated this week as the Sun illuminates your deeper recesses and the Full Moon in Libra motivates you to find balance in your day to day health and appearance. This theme will be repeated once again for good measure when Jupiter in your House of Transformation aligns nicely with Venus in your House of Public Image. If you’re willing to work at being the best you can be you should get ample assistance from both Saturn and Pluto in the no nonsense sign of Capricorn and your House of Philosophy as they align with Neptune and Mercury retrograde in your House of Dreams. You have a real charisma about you now, but don’t let it go to your head. What goes around comes around, so keep your nose to the grindstone; you’ll be glad you did.

 

Gemini- Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation are likely bringing about some big changes in your little life, so if you’re going to weather this storm it will be important for you to get a little help from your friends. The Sun in your House of Groups and the Full Moon in your House of Creativity and the cooperative sign of Libra will be motivating you to be a little nicer than usual, so try and go with the flow, especially as Venus in your House of Philosophy will aspect Jupiter in your House of Partnerships to provide you with all the charisma you’ll need to charm the stripes off a zebra. Neptune and Mercury retrograde in your House of Public Image will either serve to make you famous or infamous, depending on if you are smart enough to apologize when it’s expedient to do so and not let your inordinate pride get in the way. Think you can do that?

 

Cancer- As the Spring Equinox occurs in your House of Career opposing a Full Moon in Libra in your House of Symbolic Foundations, the time has come for you to realize that you no longer should be waiting for change to occur but should instead be pushing for it. Jupiter in your House of Work aligning with Venus in your House of Transformation speaks to believing in yourself and exploring every contact you have to try and find some light at the end of the dark tunnel you have been feeling trapped in as of late. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Partnerships along with Neptune and Mercury retrograde in your House of Philosophy represents the street credit you have earned over the years from both friends and foes alike; some will like you and some won’t, but time has proven you are a straight shooter and someone that can be depended upon. Move forward knowing that’s your resume and then have some faith.

 

Leo- How will anyone know what you have to offer if you don’t advertise? The Spring Equinox in your House of Publishing opposing a Full Moon in your House of Communication is all about getting your brand out there, so what are you waiting for? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Routines should help with the technicalities of exploring some new forms of communicating, while Neptune and Mercury retrograde in your House of Transformation represent the type of make over  your current image needs in order to let the world in on the new you that’s ready to bust out all over. Jupiter in your House of Creativity and Venus in your House of Partnerships represent luck in relationships, so don’t be shy about asking for help; someone influential may be very eager to take you on as their protégé. Leave your insecurity at the door, this isn’t an opportunity you should pass up.

 

Virgo- The Spring Equinox will be occurring in your House of Transformation where it will in turn be opposed by a Full Moon in your House of Self Worth. There are certain goals you have set for yourself and the beginning of the final approach to that promised land begins this week. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity have been working overtime to prepare you for the battle ahead, while Neptune and Mercury Retrograde in your House of Partnerships are providing you with all the support you’ll need along the way. You have been a straight shooter and a hard worker for a long time now and as Jupiter transits your Symbolic Foundations area and aligns with Venus in your House of Service you should finally see the rewards you deserve for a life lived so honorably. All hail the conquering hero!

 

Libra- Aries/Libra is the relationship axis and with the Spring Equinox this week in Aries and the Full Moon in your sign look for this time to highlight a partnership in your life; either through the rejuvenation of a friendship that may have lagged or the beginning of a significant new association. Jupiter in your House of Communication and Venus in your House of Creativity will likely highlight a project you have been trying to get moving with a much needed stroke of good luck; take whatever rewards you’re being offered, you deserve it! Saturn and Pluto in your House of Foundations are about change and transformation and Neptune and Mercury retrograde in your House of Routines are all about discovering new ways to do old chores. If you’ve been locked in a routine as of late, be willing to improvise and try something new, you’ll be glad you did!

 

Scorpio- The Spring Equinox will occur in your House of Health with a Full Moon shining its emotional light behind the scenes. If you have been having physical issues as of late, you could make a significant breakthrough this week in regards to regaining your wellness and overall vitality. Lucky Jupiter is in your House of Self Worth and as it aligns with Loving Venus in your House of Symbolic Foundations keep in mind that your attitude is important when challenges arise. Any Coach will tell you that an athlete who doesn’t strive to get better won’t, so if you are facing any significant challenges now realize that your attitude may be much more of a determinant than you think. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Intellect aligning with Neptune in your House of Creativity is all about applying yourself to the attainment of a vision, so dare to dream, but most important of all, dare to try!

 

Sagittarius- With Jupiter in your sign now you’re nothing if not hopeful and as he aligns with charismatic Venus in your House of Communication you’ll likely be lucky as well. Take the time to research some opportunities and don’t be shy about applying for a job, a grant, or anything else that can facilitate your advancement. The Spring Equinox will be in your House of Creativity and as it opposes a Full Moon in your House of Dreams be willing to push forward a new idea either at work or for your own benefit. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth will help you to cross every “t” and dot every “i” with any projects and Mars in your work area will help you maintain your focus and keep your eye on the prize. This is one of those times when you will have both vision and a pragmatic attitude, so make sure you don’t get bogged down by being overly zealous about minute details and needing something to be perfect. The only thing perfect in life is that everything in the universe manages to fit just the way it is.

 

Capricorn- As Saturn and Pluto in your sign get closer to a revolutionary joining together, the Spring Equinox will be occurring in your Symbolic Foundations area at the same time that a Full Moon will be lighting the sky in your House of Career. This could mean that you’ll likely be seeing the writing on the wall of the past months coming to a significant climax in regards to a story that had its inception long ago. With Neptune and Mercury retrograde in your House of Writing this could be an actual story, or with Mars in your House of Creativity it could instead be about the transformation of your character and the way you look at the world. Either way, whoever you thought you were, the time has come to meet who you are going to be….. “So let us stop talkin’ falsely now/ the hour’s getting late…”

 

Aquarius- Venus in your sign aligning with Jupiter in your House of Groups could see you being offered a position of leadership that you never expected to ever ever be considered for. This could be both a blessing and a curse as the Spring Equinox explodes in your House of Communication and opposes a Full Moon in your House of Philosophy, meaning that leading others is not about telling them what to do, but rather about them telling you what they need and then you being expected to take care of it. In other words, followers control the leader and not the other way around, at least in a functional, self-perpetuating organization. Dictatorships and cults of personality may be different, but who wants to be involved in that nonsense? All this may be a shock to you, but with Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes in your chart it’s a shock you needed, so wake up and smell the coffee.

 

Pisces- As the Spring Equinox explodes in your House of Self Worth and opposes a Full Moon in your House of Transformation and Other Peoples Resources, you may get some very valuable lessons this week in the arts of compromise and letting go. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Groups will be mercilessly enforcing the rules and making demands, which could give you an unpleasant shock, especially with both Neptune and Mercury retrograde making you unable to see the forest for the trees. Your tendency now may be to get frustrated and panic, but don’t. There is always a greater purpose to the seeming madness of the lessons we would hope to avoid yet can’t, so let the wisdom of Jupiter at the top of your chart guide you toward your higher self, while at the same time allowing Venus behind the scenes in the universal sign of Aquarius to teach you to trust that the Universe is here to teach you rather than to destroy you. “The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away, blessed be the name of the Lord.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #74 Weekly Horoscopes for 2/25-3/3, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 2/25-3/3, 2019

 

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

Bernie has officially declared he’s running for POTUS!!!

“Not me. Us.” Bernie Sanders 2020

 

Aries- Lady Venus will be crossing through your House of Career early this week where she will first square unpredictable Uranus in your sign and then pass into Aquarius to square forceful Mars in your House of Self Worth. Your impatience with what may or may not be going on in your career will neither eliminate nor speed up the necessary process of what must be done; so shut up and do it. Saturn is also in your House of Career and you know he doesn’t play when it comes to responsibilities, so accept what’s happening and then maybe you’ll be able to hear what visionary Neptune is trying to tell you through your intuition…..”Don’t sweat the small stuff, and it’s all small stuff.”

 

Taurus- With Mars chugging through your sign you are definitely ambitious now, and as he squares the Sun in your House of Dreams you might actually even be whistling while you work. Your tune might change though when the Planet of Action squares Venus in the egalitarian sign of Aquarius and your House of Career. This aspect is about me versus we and all the expectations and anger that comes along with that if you’re more concerned with doing what’s best for you than what’s right. Let Saturn in your House of Philosophy help you sort this out as he aspects compassionate Neptune in your House of Groups. This is about seeing the bigger picture and when that can be done then we all gain in stature.

 

Gemini- Venus in your House of Transformation will first square Uranus in your House of Groups and then when she enters into the sign of Aquarius and your House of Philosophy will next square Mars behind the scenes. Someone you thought was out of the picture could come back in with a vengeance and end up making you regret any dirt you may have done to them. Saturn along with Pluto is in your House of Death and as these two get closer the cliché of “Death and Taxes” will take on an insidious new meaning. Perhaps you think you can double talk your way out of this, but as the Sun gets close to Neptune in the sign of Pisces and your House of Career, be careful that you don’t end up hanging yourself with the yarn you’re trying to spin.

 

Cancer- As Venus exits your House of One to One Relationships to enter your House of Death and Transformation she will first square Uranus in your House of Public Image and then square Mars in your House of Friends. Someone who has consistently tried your patience ever since you’ve known them may finally have to go, even if they have been a fixture in your solar system for as long as you can remember. Some people are just knuckle-heads and that’s that. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Relationships aligning with the Sun and Neptune in your House of Philosophy should help you to detach from this individual with a minimum of drama, that is, if you can control the sense of guilt you always seem to get whenever you have to stand up for yourself.

 

Leo- Your interactions with someone on the job may get testy as Venus exits your House of Work and squares eccentric Uranus. You initial reaction may be to rip this person a new orifice, although as Venus enters your House of Relationships and squares Mars in your House of Career you may end up seeing the benefits of being diplomatic, especially if it keeps you from getting fired for homicide. Saturn and Pluto are also in your House of Work and as they align nicely with the Sun and compassionate Neptune in your House of Transformation turning the other cheek may just facilitate you being able to turn the page on the whole situation by getting an unexpected perk for your trouble, particularly if a boss happens to be within earshot and hears how patient and mature you can be in the face of such unwarranted abuse.

 

Virgo- Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity will inspire you to be willing to shake things up, while the Sun and Neptune in your House of Partnerships could draw to you the appropriate accomplices to assist you in doing whatever deeds are necessary for your evolution. Venus in your House of Creativity squaring Uranus in your House of Transformation and then Mars in your House of Philosophy may bring about some unexpected obstacles, however, you may also be surprised at the extent of your inner resources as Jupiter in transcendental Sagittarius at the bottom of your chart helps to elevate you above the fray.  “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” so if you can feel your toes then rejoice at your good fortune.

 

Libra- As Venus departs this week from responsible Capricorn and your House of Foundations to enter adventurous Aquarius and your House of Creativity, you might find that you’re bursting with new ideas, especially when the Goddess of Beauty squares Mars in your House of Transformation. Visionary Neptune and quick witted Mercury will be in your House of Work and as they align with Saturn and Pluto at the bottom of your chart not only will you be innovative in your approach to things but practical as well. If you have been doing any writing or art work as of late make sure you get it out there as Jupiter transits your House of Communication, you may have a lot more to say than you realize!

 

Scorpio- With Saturn and Pluto in your House of Thinking aligning with Neptune and Mercury in your House of Creativity your outlook on life is rapidly changing. Later in the week when Venus passes into the universally minded sign of Aquarius and squares Mars in your House of Partnerships you might unexpectedly discover you have transformed from a misanthrope into an optimist. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth and the buoyant sign of Sagittarius probably also has a lot to do with this new and improved outlook, especially as it aligns with Uranus in your House of Health. Those two together can be very Magickal, so if you’re feeling like you’re finally able to let go of a great weight of negativity that has been burdening you for a long time then you probably can! “I’m looking to the sky to save me/ Looking for a sign of life/Looking for something to help me burn out bright.”

 

Sagittarius- The week will begin with both the Moon and Jupiter in your sign so be careful what you’re willing to convince yourself of. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth will have you feeling a bit unsettled and when Venus enters your House of Communication and squares Mars you might feel compelled to either binge on junk food or run on a treadmill until you collapse like all the other angry yuppies at the health club who hate their boss. Do you hate your boss? Take into consideration it might not be he or she that’s frustrating you, but rather what they represent. Projection is a dangerous illusion, so if you’ve been thinking of going to therapy now might be the time. You wouldn’t want to be running away from the wrong person, would you?

 

Capricorn- With Saturn and Pluto in your sign things have been a bit cloudy for a while now, so when Venus came along a few weeks ago with her little bit of sunshine there was at least some reason for hope. Unfortunately, the Goddess of Love and Beauty will be departing your domain this week to enter into Aquarius and your House of Self Worth, where she will then move into alignment with Mars in your House of Fun and Romance. Nobody likes to see a hot chick go, but don’t assume she won’t be inviting you to come along, especially since the Moon will be joining her in Aquarius this week and even though Mars is pretty virile the ladies will have him outnumbered two to one. You may just have to take one for the team so be willing to party hearty if you must, you’ll be proud you did.

 

Aquarius- Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes are making you feel more responsible than usual, especially as foggy Neptune and Mercury transit through impressionable Pisces and your House of Self Worth. Jupiter and the Moon will kick off the week in your House of Dreams, which could represent the height of illusion. With that in mind, stop repeating to yourself (and to others) whatever it is you think you need. Rather than this mantra being inspirational, you may instead be inadvertently reminding yourself that you’re failing and that sort of negative re-enforcement doesn’t help one find satisfaction. When Venus comes out from behind the scenes later in the week to enter your sign she will align with Mars, which just might put some much needed pep in your step, especially as the Sun will also align with Mars at that time to burn away some of that Neptunian fog that has your priorities confused.

 

Pisces- With the Sun, Neptune, and Mercury in your sign now you may be indulging your feelings when you should be detached and logical, or vice versa, neither of which will give you an accurate picture of what’s really going on. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Groups can help you to stay grounded, especially as Mars moves through your House of Local Activities and provides you with some immediate challenges to be dealt with that are not about impressions but actualities. On the other hand, Jupiter flying high in your House of Public Image could have you worrying about what others may think of you, but really, how could anyone know much about you if you can’t manage to get a clear picture of yourself?
