Mr. Saturn’s Stars #61 Weekly Horoscopes for 11/19-11/25, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 11/19-11/25, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. The Thanksgiving Holiday will be happening this week, so as you’re stuffing your pie hole  make sure you take a moment to reflect on all you have to be thankful for (and even the stuff you didn’t care for if it ended up making you better in some way…..after all, that’s the way the evolutionary cookie crumbles).

 

 Aries- With this week’s Full Moon in your House of Communications opposing Jupiter in your House of Philosophy and squaring Mars behind the scenes, be careful that you don’t inadvertently hurt yourself (or someone else) with a “Freudian Slip.” Your emotions are very close to the surface now and if you’ve been experiencing frustrations or delays in the work sphere your editing faculties will likely be a little bit off. They say “loose lips sink ships,” well, just make sure you don’t deep six a lot of what you’ve worked for by saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. If you have something to vent do it at the gym instead of running your mouth.

 

Taurus- There are 4 major planets this week in your House of Transformation, a Full Moon in your House of Self Worth, and a bunch of decisions that need to be made. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy are promoting a slash and burn approach to anything that contributes to your comfort zone and prevents you from moving ahead, while Uranus retrograde behind the scenes has you itching to press forward regardless of the circumstances; in other words, you could exhaust yourself by trying to let go and hold on at the same time. Mercury retrograde starting off the week squaring Neptune could have you losing sight of the forest for the trees, so ask someone you trust for help. Just be willing to follow their advice if you know it’s true. Any hesitancy you’re feeling about change is merely the seductiveness of your comfort zone trying to anesthetize you; Don’t fall asleep at the wheel.

 

Gemini- This week’s Full Moon is in your sign and as it opposes Jupiter in your House of Partnerships and squares Mars in your House of Career, be prepared to take one step back to move two steps forward. Your ability to strategize and compromise will catch your enemies off guard and re-establish confidence in you from those who have been supportive but doubtful as of late. The question is can you transcend that ego of yours that needs to be in control? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation are going to force you to let some things go, just realize that this will allow you travel lighter and farther than you ordinarily would if you were totally in control, especially if that control was just going to precipitate your demise by stretching you too thin and making you seem unqualified and ill prepared….A word to the wise, less is more.

 

Cancer- An epiphany could be coming to you this week as the Full Moon shines into your House of Secrets. Jupiter in your House of Work squaring Mars in your House of Philosophy, which then aligns nicely with Saturn in your House of Partnerships, could see you joining forces on the job with someone you ordinarily wouldn’t want to be associated with. The caveat here is that the advantage in this situation is all yours because you’re the only one this individual thinks they can trust. Politics no doubt makes for strange bedfellows, but if you can both benefit from this association give it a chance; particularly if you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Mercury retrograde squaring Neptune in your House of Philosophy could have you doubting all of the above, however Mr. Saturn thinks the illusion usually associated with this pair of planets will be about ultimately trusting your intuition rather than getting stuck in the illusions of conventional logic…..What do you think?

 

Leo- You’ve been procrastinating about an idea long enough. As the Moon goes Full in your House of Dreams and opposes Jupiter in your House of Creativity, the time has come to go out and make that first step. Mars in your House of Transformation aligning with Saturn in your House of Maintenance will be there to back you up once this project gets in gear, so don’t let yourself get overly bogged down in details at the onset, after all, needing to have everything figured out ahead of time has always been your excuse in the past not to start. (Touché.) With Uranus retrograde at your Mid-heaven, expect the unexpected, and with Venus finally going direct the unexpected might just end up being that the idea you’re about to take a risk on is a lot better than you realized. That’s not to say there aren’t a few glitches, but with Mercury currently retrograde it’ll all get figured out eventually. The question is, do you believe?

 

Virgo- Marlon Brando in “The Godfather” said, “keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” As the Full Moon ascends into your House of Career and enters into a testy alignment with Jupiter at your Foundation and Mars in your House of Partners, it should become quite apparent now who has your best interests in mind and who doesn’t. Make a note of who’s who, but don’t let on to anyone what you know. There may be some surprises, particularly if you realize a partner has been passive aggressively undermining you, however, with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity you should have no problem seeing what needs to be capitalized on and what needs to be let go of. If you’re feeling some regrets about what needs to be done, just remember what happened to Don Corleone in the end….Que sera sera.

 

Libra- Now that Venus is direct in your sign and moving into an opposition with Uranus retrograde in your House of Partnerships, expect some feelers you sent out in the past to unexpectedly track you down. This should be further accentuated as Jupiter combines with the Sun in your House of Communications and aligns with the Full Moon in your House of Publishing and the dissemination of ideas. Mercury retrograde is also in your House of Communication and as it enters into a harsh angle with Neptune in your House of Work, don’t underestimate how much those who are seeking you out need you; be humble and all that, but don’t be a doormat.

 

Scorpio- The Full Moon in your House of Transformation opposes Jupiter in your House of Self Worth and as they both square Mars in your House of Creativity you are likely feeling it’s finally time to take decisive action in regards to controlling your own life. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Ideas have seen you going back and forth between considering the merits of being a worker or a boss, but the one thing you consistently shy away from thinking about is being your own Master (or Mistress). Venus behind the scenes opposing Uranus retrograde is probably finding you yet again in a position to have to bail out some incompetent superior. While this individual may have had the money to start this business, you’re the one who’s actually running it. A suggestion for the future; find an investor not a boss.

 

Sagittarius- As the Full Moon illuminates your House of Relationships and squares Mars in your House of Home, the time has likely come for you to get out of the nest and begin your own life. Jupiter in your sign knows you’re ready, but Neptune also in your House of Home has you hedging on whether or not you’re willing and able. Really? Having your own life is not just about money (which you have) but also about maintenance, which you lazily and co-dependently always palm off on someone else. Just don’t underestimate the control that you’re giving away by being too lazy to take care of your own shit. Saturn in your House of Self Worth is also impacting Mars in your home area, so if you’re willing to take responsibility then you can have true freedom in return, after all, that’s the most important bill you’ll ever have to pay.

 

Capricorn- Having Saturn and Pluto in your sign for a while has likely put everything you’ve been used to into disarray. As the Full Moon in your House of Work squares Mars in your House of Communication, now would probably be a good time for you to establish some new routines that will draw on all the change you’ve been through. Venus going direct in your House of Career should see you finally getting some rewards for any hard work you might have done in the past, although Mercury retrograde behind the scenes might still have you worrying about stuff that you shouldn’t and waiting for the shoe to drop. The antidote for this funk is to let the Sun and Jupiter lead you in a jailbreak from your House of Confinement….as the man once said, “Follow your bliss.”

 

Aquarius- Too many choices can lead to confusion and that might be exactly where you are now as you contemplate a myriad of possibilities that exist in a new situation. Mars in your House of Self Worth has you feeling quite ambitious, although where the Warrior Planet is now in Pisces is more about strategy and timing rather than overwhelming something with energy and brute force. Venus passing through your House of Philosophy to oppose Uranus in your House of Communication is about killing them with kindness, so be willing to be patient and negotiate and you could go far in a what might currently appear to be a chaotic situation. Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes will keep you going two steps forward and one step back for the next little while, so try to be patient and go with the flow, your future may depend on it.

 

Pisces- Mars and Neptune in your sign is not necessarily the best combination, as their qualities of action and illusion can tend to make it feel as though you’re trying to drive a car through a heavy fog. Likewise, the Full Moon at the bottom of your chart and Jupiter at the top is like the foam overflowing out of a beer mug, so make sure you start out sipping slowly in a new situation or you could end up with a wet face and very little beer. Mercury retrograde in your House of Career squaring Neptune could have you believing that everything that glitters is gold, however, be careful that your check book is balanced and you’re not assuming you can draw on resources that aren’t really there. It’s true that “when you ain’t got nothing, you got nothing to lose,” but face it, debt can accumulate as easily as dust, so try not to neglect what needs to be taken care of right now.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #60 Weekly Horoscopes for 11/12-11/18, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 11/12-11/18, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. This week we have election recounts in both Florida and Arizona, a new henchman, uh, I mean acting Attorney General, for Mr. Rump, more senseless gun violence by a mad man, and Mercury will be going retrograde……oh well, as the saying goes, S.N.A.F.U

 

Aries- As Mercury slows down this week in advance of going retrograde, it will square Neptune in your House of Confinement, bringing up the whole notion of who’s in control of your life. Of course you’d like to think you’re in charge of what’s going on, but if you take a moment to listen to Jupiter in your House of Philosophy as it squares Mars behind the scenes, you might just start to realize how much you give your power away by reacting to certain provocations you’d do better to ignore. Uranus retrograde has backed up into your sign and as it approaches an opposition to Venus going station/direct, try not to get so frustrated with any delays that are going on with a long term project you’re involved with; someone might begin to think you have no confidence.

 

Taurus- With Mercury and Jupiter in your House of Transformation you’ll likely be chomping at the bit to introduce some form of change into your life now, however, with Neptune and Mars in Pisces squaring Mercury and Jupiter respectively, don’t try to push matters any faster than circumstances will permit. Allowing yourself to become overly impatient could find you having to retrace some steps after having impetuously jumped forward before the time was right. Uranus retrograde is moving backward into your House of Confinement, and as it opposes Venus standing still in your House of Routines, expected the unexpected in regards to delays and annoying misunderstandings. Remember, if you can keep your cool and go with the flow, next week could see you in the driver’s seat when Mars aligns with Venus and a very special helper could come into your life.

 

Gemini- You might want to rethink how others see you this week as both Neptune and Mars in your House of Public Image square both Mercury retrograde and Jupiter in your House of Partnerships. Being too suspicious could find you biting off your nose to spite your face, although being too nice could find you being a doormat for someone you should be riding roughshod over. Uranus going retrograde back into your House of Groups will make it hard for you to see anyone else’s opinion as being anything more than veiled criticism, although as Venus comes to a standstill in your House of Creativity try to be patient; time is on your side as long as you’re not in a rush. Let a situation at work jell for a bit, there’ll be plenty of time next week to make up for taking it slow now.

 

Cancer- Neptune and Mars in your House of Philosophy later in the week could have you feeling very pessimistic, especially with Mercury going retrograde in your House of Work just as Jupiter squares Mars and makes you painfully aware that you’re spinning your wheels in a dead end situation at work. Uranus moving backwards into your House of Career and opposing Venus standing still in you House of Foundations could be just the inspiration you need in this seemingly hopeless situation to say, “**ck it,” and take a risk on something new, after all, if not now, when, and if not here, where? Next week as Mars and Venus align you may just find yourself transformed into a fount of ideas instead of the dry well you see yourself as now.

 

Leo- Reminiscing about better days could be either a subconscious strategy for remaining in your comfort zone, or a conscious one to get your ass in gear and do something different to kick-start yourself into a more auspicious future. It’s up to you. Jupiter in your House of Creativity and Mars in your House of Transformation should provide all the torque you need to get things moving, especially if you’re willing to react to the provocations of Uranus retrograde entering your House of Philosophy and take a new perspective on what is more important in your life now, comfort or meaning? It’s not a trick question, just one that you need to be honest with yourself about. Neptune in your House of Transformation squaring Mercury going station/retrograde in your House of Creativity could give you either deep insights or facile explanations about your current state of affairs; you’ll know which is which by how good or bad you feel after making a choice.

 

Virgo- Frustrations on the home front may be more about a subconscious desire for freedom rather than a need to renovate anything or move somewhere else. Think of your living space as a metaphor of yourself, you can remain trapped in your habits and comfort zone or else you could reach out and embrace something off the beaten path of your usual routine. Saturn in your House of Creativity could be either a restrictive or an organizing influence in this situation, but as Uranus backs up into your House of Transformation to oppose Venus in your House of Self Worth you’ll never know for sure what inscrutable Saturn is thinking unless you are willing to risk trying something different than your same old same old.

 

Libra- As Venus comes to a standstill this week in your sign, you could be feeling vulnerable and hence are surprised by a response you get from someone regarding something you’ve created. There’s no accounting for taste and opinions are like noses, everybody has one, yet you should ask yourself why you feel so naked whenever someone reacts to something you’ve put out there? It may be time to realize just how low an opinion you have of yourself if someone liking something you’ve done is such a surprise or, if any level of criticism at all makes you feel like you’re being told you’re a failure. Creating anything brings responsibilities, meaning that mistakes are inevitable and success is impossible unless we are willing to accept what it takes to make something better and then act accordingly.

 

Scorpio- Your intensity is usually what puts others on their heels, although with intellectual Mercury and Jupiter in your House of Self Worth squaring both Mars and Neptune in your House of Romance, you could be the one now who is a total “Fool for Love.” This will no doubt be exacerbated by Venus standing still behind the scenes as impetuous Uranus retrograde freezes her like a deer in the headlights as he moves in and out of your your House of Relationships. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Communication will also likely find you tongue tied as well, but don’t worry, your goofiness will make you eminently approachable so sit back and enjoy being swept off your feet by a prince or princess charming.

 

Sagittarius- Now that Jupiter has returned home to your sign you should feel inspired to move beyond any obstacles that may have been holding you back. Later in the week as Mars pulls into your House of Family and Mercury goes retrograde in your sign, be prepared for squabbles big and small. A word to the wise though, don’t be so willing to engage individuals who’ve annoyed you in the past, use the transcendental qualities of Jupiter to ignore these people like they were in another universe (which essentially they are if you don’t live on planet ridiculous). If you have a message to get out there or even a presentation to make, a trine at the end of the week between Venus and Mars in your Houses of Groups and Communications respectively should give you the necessary charisma and gift of gab to make you an unqualified success……cheers!

 

Capricorn- Mercury going station/retrograde behind the scenes and squaring Neptune in your House of Communications could end up making your interactions with people this week quite confusing. You may have trouble remembering what you’ve either said or heard and with the Sun squaring Mars in your House of Self Worth you’ll also be more than likely to think that the other person is needlessly being a jerk about it, which could very well be the case, however, if you hope to get anything done just make sure that your frustration doesn’t get the best of you.With Venus retrograde transiting Libra and your House of Public Image you’ll probably have the necessary charm to get through any misunderstandings, but only if you can keep quiet and try not to take anyone too seriously (including yourself).

 

Aquarius- It will be very easy this week to put your foot in your mouth, so if you’re not the featured speaker at a contortionist’s convention make sure you watch what you say. Mercury will be going retrograde in your House of Groups and as it squares Neptune in your House of Self Worth make sure you keep your ego in check as well, especially with Uranus retrograde backing up into your House of Communication to oppose Venus retrograde in your House of Philosophy; you’re not right no matter what, so don’t force someone to have to tell you that. As both Saturn and Pluto get closer to each other behind the scenes you could end up being penalized in unexpected ways for breaking protocol, so try to play nice with the other children, even if you’re convinced you are the only one who knows what’s going on……Not!!!

 

Pisces- As Mars enters your sign this week with Neptune already there, don’t be surprised if you start to feel like you’re driving a car in the fog and getting nowhere. Mercury going station/retrograde in your House of Career and squaring Neptune will likely make this feeling that you’re accomplishing nothing even worse, just as Jupiter squaring Mars will make you want to go even faster. And if that isn’t enough, Uranus retrograde will be backing up into your House of Self Worth to oppose Venus retrograde in your House of Transformation, which could be translated as, “be careful and don’t assume anything”…..Like Felix in the Odd Couple once said, when you assume you make an “ass” out of “u” and “me.” Consider this observation carefully before you try to push anything forward this week.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #58 Weekly Horoscopes for 10/29-11/4, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/29-11/4, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! I missed you last week because of a family function I had to attend, but I’m back now so let’s get on with this week’s version of Mr. Saturn’s Stars.

First though I would like to point out that Halloween is coming up, and while many of us are looking forward to festivities and parades, it is also a time when we need to acknowledge the spirits of our ancestors and those who have come before us. This week in particular we should all pray (in whatever way you choose) for the recent victims of the horrible massacre at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh as they join countless others beyond that mysterious veil which separates life and death.

 

Aries- With 4 major planets in your House of Transformation squaring Mars in your House of Groups and opposing Uranus retrograde in your House of Self Worth, this could be quite an evolutionary week for you as you struggle with how the world see’s you in contrast to how you see yourself. Venus retrograde opposing Uranus retrograde will make it easy for you to fall into old patterns and seek approval rather than acknowledging how you really feel in the moment, while at the same time Saturn in your House of Public Image will activate your sense of responsibility (and guilt) as you find yourself in the paradoxical position of doing well yet being unhappy at the same time. This may be a week of two steps forward, one step back, so try your best to roll with it.

 

Taurus- Most of this week’s action will be in your House of Relationships as 4 major planets there oppose Uranus retrograde in your sign, making it seem as though everyone has an agenda regarding what they need from you while at the same time you’re not feeling cooperative in the least. Meanwhile, Saturn and Pluto trending in your House of Philosophy are causing you to think more radically than you ever have before, which could be good for some situations in your life, bad for others, and uncomfortable for everyone around you who thinks they can influence you to do what they want. This is a challenging time for you as you both initiate and react to circumstances that are all outside your legendary Taurus comfort zone……As Grace Slick said at sunrise on the second day at Woodstock, “Now it’s time for morning maniac music, it’s a new dawn, yeah!”

 

Gemini- Challenges, power struggles, personality conflicts, and the like will all make you wonder why you’re still at your current job as 4 major planets march through your House of Work and oppose Uranus retrograde in your House of Confinement. Mars in your House of Philosophy will also be squaring those working planets, which could make you act rashly out of frustration, however, before you burn any bridges first make sure that you can afford to. If not, then let Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation help you start making some new plans for a future transition that will allow you to jump ship on your own terms, rather than getting down in the mud with a gaggle of idiots who will likely shoot each other in the foot sooner or later with or without your involvement.

 

Cancer- Your deepest inventive urges are being stirred now as 4 major planets transit your House of Creativity to oppose Uranus in your House of Dreams and square Mars in your House of Transformation. This isn’t a situation of “oh, it might be nice to try something different,” but rather more like, “if I don’t do something right now to change my life I’m going to kill myself!” Now this may sound a bit melodramatic, but with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Relationships aligning with Neptune in your House of Philosophy, you are no longer the same person you once were and as long as others keep seeing the old you the more you’re going to feel disrespected and useless. Stop thinking what you’d like to try and start making some moves; you’ll be surprised at how potent a little desperation can be.

 

Leo- Past a certain point of complaining you can no longer claim to be a victim of circumstances, instead you have to be willing to admit that you’re either going to accept the situation you’re in or else do something about it. With 4 major planets transiting across the lowest point in your chart and angling harshly with both Mars and Uranus, it’s either you risk initiating a change now or internally self-combust from an unwillingness to do anything about your frustration; pick your poison. Saturn and Pluto transiting through your House of Work have been writing revolutionary rhetoric on the wall for a while now, so what are you waiting for? From those who are capable, much is expected, and right now it’s up to you to decide just how capable you’re willing to be.

 

Virgo- Any difficulties that arise on the job now are not designed to stop you, but rather to make you stronger. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity represent your instincts, as you either fight or run in the face of a stellium of planets in your House of Communication squaring Mars in your House of Work. If you’re the one who’s there when the poo hits the fan then you’ve met your destiny and it’s time to dance in the moonlight with your fears and trepidations. If you ever hope to be the boss (of others, or even just yourself) then you must be able to negotiate the difficult situations that everyone else either avoids or fails in the face of. As the Sun moves into alignment with Neptune, be willing to accept your own vulnerability, it’s the only way to discover just how strong you are.

 

Libra- 4 planets in your House of Self Worth squaring Mars in your House of Creativity would suggest that you are ready now for any challenges that come your way. Uranus in your House of Transformation aligning with Saturn at the lowest point in your chart would also suggest that you’re ready for a rebirth of sorts in regards to a current dream that may have stalled as of late. As the Lunar Arc begins this week it will be passing through your House of Career and aligning with both Jupiter and Mercury in your House of Self Worth, so be prepared to either initiate a push forward or perhaps engage in pushing back if your confidence is challenged. It’s not whether or not you’re good enough to succeed, it’s rather about believing that you are worthy to compete with anyone.

 

Scorpio- You are the sign that rules death and transformation and with 4 major planets currently passing through your domain and squaring Mars at the bottom of your chart, you are essentially the proverbial snake shedding its skin as you discover your potential amidst changing circumstances both at home and at work. Saturn and Pluto are reinforcing this idea of change as they pass through your House of Thinking and you find yourself curiously detached from what you always thought were normal ways of looking at the world. The Lunar Arc this week will begin in your House of Philosophy and end in your House of Confinement, so take the time to reflect on how you arrived at wherever it is you’re now approaching life from.

 

Sagittarius- With 4 major planets in your House of Secrets and Confinement, it’s likely that your inner life is a lot more dynamic now than any external circumstances that you are currently experiencing.  That’s not to say though that your frustration level isn’t going through the roof. Mercury and Jupiter behind the scenes will probably have you playing various scenarios over and over in your head, while a harsh angle to Mars in your House of Communications will make expressing any of this very difficult. Neptune in your House of Foundations aligning with the Sun could represent either a deeper understanding that could unfold from all this contemplation, or else it could be a sense of being thoroughly misunderstood. Either way this should prove to be a confusing week.

 

Capricorn- Your control issues could move front and center this week as 4 major planets in your House of Groups and Dreams are all in harsh alignment with Mars in your House of Self Worth. You’re feeling that you’ve waited long enough for whatever it is you’re after and you don’t want to hear any crap about it. “Show me the money!” will be your battle cry (Or something to that effect). Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity aligning with Saturn in your sign could see some unexpected support coming from someone you used to know, so if what you remember of this person recalls happy times then let yourself feel lighter and stop obsessing over what you don’t have yet…(and the operative word here is “yet”, get it?).

 

Aquarius- As Mars plows ahead through your sign and squares 4 major planets in your House of Career, you’ll be feeling especially ambitious, however, try to pay close attention to what you’re actually feeling. Do you want to succeed out of a healthy sense of competition and/or a natural need for self-expression, or is your desire for success instead coming from a deeper, darker place…like not feeling good enough or believing you don’t deserve love without having to do something for it? Uranus in your House of Foundations aligning with Saturn behind the scenes is bringing this darkness out of you for a reason, so be willing to explore the psychology behind your hopes and dreams in order to make sure they’re bringing you to a better place.

 

Pisces- As Mercury conjuncts Jupiter in your House of Philosophy and squares Mars behind the scenes, you will have a burning desire to confront the unknown, and that could mean anything from a subject you’ve always been curious about to the darker mysteries of the universe. With Saturn aligning with Uranus in your House of Ideas and Communication, you could find yourself deciding to pursue a course of study that may be unusual or arcane in some way; follow this urge and a whole new world of excitement and adventure could open up for you. “Existence is all that can be known, but it is not all that is real.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #53 Weekly Horoscopes for 9/17-9/23, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 9/17-9/23, 2018

 

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

 

Aries- As both the Sun and Mercury finish up this week in your House of Work and proceed to enter your House of Relationships, you may just be ready to look up from that old grindstone and allow yourself a little rest and relaxation with someone special. Mars moving into a square with Uranus will likely make you feel a need to get away from the craziness and what better way than to follow Venus’s lead from your House of Intimacy and squeeze someone until you both shout! Jupiter is also in your House of Intimacy and he’ll be aligning nicely with romantic Neptune behind the scenes, so stock up on what you need this weekend, put the do not disturb sign on the door, and we’ll see you later alligator.

 

Taurus- With Uranus in your sign squaring Mars in your House of Public Image, demands being made on you now could have you worrying about what others may think if you tell them to kiss off! As the Sun and Mercury enter agreeable Libra you’re Venusian nature will default to it’s usual “nice” mode, but is that how you really feel? Jupiter in your House of Relationships aligning with Pluto in your House of Philosophy would suggest you shouldn’t devalue yourself in any way for anyone, especially since Saturn (also in your House of Philosophy) is giving you all the reason you need (namely your self respect) to shut down any craziness before it can get started. Neptune in your House of Groups may be giving someone the wrong idea about your politeness, make sure they get the right idea by letting them see your big stick.

 

Gemini- If you’ve been pushing yourself too hard over the last little while, maybe it’s time to lighten up a bit this week? Particularly since Mars is squaring Uranus behind the scenes, which will likely increase your stress levels significantly. Both the Sun and Mercury will be entering your House of Fun so maybe it’s time to catch up with some old friends or check out an activity you’ve always wanted to try? Jupiter in your House of Health aligning with Pluto in your House of Transformation could make this an excellent time to start an exercise program (or get back to one) especially with Neptune in your House of Public Image; which means don’t take a friend’s teasing as an insult, but rather as motivation to get back in shape. Don’t worry, you’ll make them eat crow in a short while.

 

Cancer- Venus in your House of Creativity squaring Mars in your House of Transformation will likely provide the bugle call you’ve been longing for to awaken some needed inspiration. Add to that Uranus in your House of Dreams and perhaps an opportunity may fall out of the sky this week and hit you in the head…..Jupiter is also in that House of Creativity and as it aligns nicely with Pluto in your House of Partnerships and Neptune in your House of Philosophy, you may end up being an integral part of an important event or project through which you will shine. The Sun and Mercury entering Libra should serve to make things nice and quiet on the home front, so follow your bliss this week with impunity…..go for it!!!

 

Leo- As Mars enters your House of Relationships and squares Uranus in your House of Public Image and Career, you will probably have very little patience this week with any sort of foolishness; let’s just hope somebody doesn’t have to find that out the hard way. Saturn will make you seem all about business at this time, especially as it conjuncts the Moon in your House of Work and aligns with the previously mentioned Uranus in your House of Career. Both Jupiter and Venus are in your House of Home, which means that if you’re willing to help out a loved one now who’s in a tight spot, it could bring some unexpected dividends; of course you shouldn’t help them just because you might end up getting something out of it, but a word to the wise, don’t neglect them either.

 

Virgo- As the song goes, “You got to give a little, take a little, that’s the story of Love,” and with both the Sun and Mercury entering the sign of Libra and your House of Self Worth, making that your mantra this week could serve you very well. Venus in your House of Communication squaring Mars in your House of Work will help you to smooth out any rough edges regarding a situation or person who offers obstacles to your forward progress, as will Jupiter (also in your Communications area) aligning with Pluto in your House of Creativity. You’ll have plenty of charm, ideas, and energy this week, don’t be shy about utilizing these resources!

 

Libra- With the Sun and Mercury entering your sign this week, expect the pace of both your social and professional lives to pick up considerably. Mars in your House of Creativity will activate your efforts to either start a new project, get something you’ve just finished out there, or perhaps even try to push forward on both fronts at the same time. This sounds like things could get hectic, but with both Saturn and Pluto in your House of Foundations aligning with Uranus and Jupiter respectively, they’ll be plenty of earth around (furnishing both supports and obstacles) to keep you well grounded in reality. Add to that Venus and Jupiter in your House of Self Worth, and there may be more than a little luck on your side right now as well. In the meantime, don’t be surprised at whatever 4 leaf clovers you may come across, after all, you deserve it.

 

Scorpio- Take a deep breath and count your lucky stars, even if you don’t win the lotto or fall in love, simply because Venus and Jupiter are in your sign and no matter what shit Mars and Uranus toss at the fan, none of it will get on you. Neptune in your House of Creativity should provide plenty of inspiration, while Pluto in your House of Communication should provide the means to get through any ennui anyone tries to thwart you with, as you plow ahead undeterred, unsinkable, and unabashed in the face of any hassles great or small. The inner life should steer the outer, so with both the Sun and Mercury transiting behind the scenes in the sign of Libra you’ll likely have the balance of a gyroscope, therefore, don’t hesitate to do you with impunity; the Gods will be supportive.

 

Sagittarius- Mars will begin the week squaring Uranus in your Houses of Communication and Work respectively, which could mean that there’ll be enough bullshit on the job to make you think you’re working in the stables at Pamplona, but don’t despair. Venus and Jupiter behind the scenes will be aligning with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth to give you all the intuition, insight, and ingenuity you’ll need to be able to navigate the situation with a minimum or both mess and odor. However, after you dodge this bullet take a moment to reflect on the fact that if you can be so stealth when the circumstances calls for it, then how come you’re still in the same crummy situation? You can either resume as you are, or send out a resume, think about it.

 

Capricorn- The Sun and Mercury entering your House of Career this week will be like hiring a PR firm to promote your image, and God knows with Saturn in your sign and Mars in your House of Self Worth you will definitely need a ring master to get this show on the road. Jupiter and Venus in your House of Dreams aligning with Pluto would indicate you’re absolutely ready for a makeover, while Uranus in your House of Creativity would indicate the world isn’t prepared for what that may mean, but hey, that’s not your problem, not with glamorous Neptune aligning with Jupiter and the potential for a zillion instagram likes hanging in the balance…..just kidding; though you do need to get out there and you’re a lot more fabulous than you give yourself credit for…..just sayin’.

 

Aquarius- Mars in your sign squaring Uranus in your House of Foundations will seem like your own personal category four hurricane this week, however, don’t evacuate just yet. Venus and Jupiter in your House of Career would indicate there’s help on the way. Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes are aligning with some of this volatility, which means you’ll possess not only the personal gravitas to weather this situation, but also the creative versatility of Neptune in your House of Self Worth to help you sail beyond any impending disasters. As the Sun and Mercury enter your House of Philosophy, your personal Zen will no doubt become apparent to everyone around as you transcend not only your circumstances, but your self as well.

 

Pisces- Neptune is your ruling planet and with him currently in your sign life has no doubt seemed like a rollercoaster between illusion and enlightenment for a while now. Amidst this fog, Mars will be entering behind the scenes this week to square Uranus in your House of Communications, which mean either you could lose your shit or be the target of someone else losing theirs. Jupiter and Venus in your House of Philosophy would advise you to take the high road in any conflict, while Pluto in your House of Friends would suggest quickly disengaging from anyone who can’t respect you enough to disagree civilly. The Sun and Mercury entering Libra and your House of Transformation will likely concur with this agenda of good manners, so if you can manage to keep your cool this week then others will likely keep theirs.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #49 Weekly Horoscopes for 8/20-8/26, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 8/20-8/26, 2018

 

Inertia; “The resistance of any physical object to any change in its position and state of motion. This includes changes to the object’s speed, direction, or state of rest.”

 

Hi kids!!! We have 5 retrograde planets and 3 major inconjuncts this week, so after you read your horoscope if you’re still impatient about what’s not happening in your life, refer to the above definition…. Que sera sera……

 

Aries- Venus transiting through your House of Relationships might have you feeling a little more amorous than usual, however, since she inconjuncts Neptune behind the scenes and squares Pluto in your House of Public Image, hold off on any crushes or hit and runs for the time being. The Sun in your House of Romance inconjunct Mars retrograde in your House of Career would also indicate you should probably avoid any work place romances as well; in short, let this Venus transit be about friendship and camaraderie rather than anything epic, like say, Doctor Zhivago or Boogie Nights. If you don’t believe me and insist on being either Don Juan or Juanita, don’t be surprised if Jupiter in your House of Intimacy squaring Mercury in  your House of Romance shows you just how thin the line is that separates love and hate……just sayin’.

 

Taurus- If you’re not being treated the way you think you deserve in either a romantic or professional partnership, this could be the week when the matador loses the bullfight. Jupiter in your House of Relationships is squaring Mercury in your House of Foundations, so don’t hesitate to speak your mind if you’re feeling agitated and you just might finally get through to that “special” person who’s just doesn’t seem to get it. You are no one’s option and with Uranus in your sign you might just end up being someone’s headache; a word to the wise! The Sun will be entering your House of Romance later in the week, and when he does he’ll be forming a Grand Trine with Uranus as well as Saturn retrograde in your House of Philosophy, meaning don’t hesitate to kick to the curb anyone who disrespects your heart (or any other part of you for that matter). Love begins at home with “y-o-u.”

 

Gemini- You may have your eye on someone this week but try not to be too easy if you can help it. Venus in your House of Romance inconjunct Neptune in your House of Communication would indicate that if you can be fooled, you will, so be careful. Mr. Saturn has a saying you might benefit from and it goes, “I’ve never had my heart broken, but I’ve dropped it a few times.” Hopefully, a word to the wise on this will be sufficient. Venus squaring Pluto in your House of Sex and Intimacy could make you an unpleasant customer if you should get your feelings hurt, so make sure you have an attorney on speed dial and plenty of bail money, Uranus behind the scenes in your chart could end up with shit get crazy real quick.

 

Cancer- Venus is passing through your House of Home and Symbolic Foundations, so it may be high time for you to stop trying to fix the world and instead bring some of that “Good Lovin’” of yours on home to hubby or wifey. Neptune in your House of Philosophy is about amore, but seeing as the King of the Sea is inconjunct Venus, perhaps it means that you’ve been taking a significant other for granted and they deserve better, especially with Venus also squaring Pluto in your House of Romance. Try to make sure that sparks of passion don’t inadvertantly erupt into a crime of passion because they’re all fired up with nowhere to go; just sayin’, take it on advisement. Instead, why don’t you listen to Uranus in your House of Dreams aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Realtionships, as they suggest perhaps coming up with a little surprise to add some spice to that good home cookin’ you and your significant other just love to share. Bon appetite!!!

 

Leo- With Neptune in your House of Transformation inconjunct both Venus in your House of Communication and Mercury in your sign, your dialogues with others (or lack thereof) will be of paramount importance now. Jupiter in your House of Foundation squaring Mercury could make it very easy for you to be misunderstood, especially if you choose to monologue at people rather than dialogue as mentioned above. Uranus retrograde in your House of Public Image aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Work could require you to walk back a pronouncement you made in the past that was either misconstrued or just badly expressed, take the time to do it, especially with the Sun entering Virgo later in the week to form a Grand Trine with Uranus and Saturn; your humility and willingness to admit you were wrong will have a surprising effect at galvanizing public trust in your favor. What originally came out bad could end up good.

 

Virgo- It is very important now to clearly express how you feel about someone so they don’t assume your silence or shyness is indifference, or worse, some kind of subtle criticism. This is because Neptune in a double inconjunct to both Venus in your House of Self Worth and Mercury behind the scenes will likely make it very easy for any lack of confidence you might be feeling to appear as if it’s an unsatisfactory judgment of someone else. The Sun entering your sign midweek will subsequently form a Grand Trine with both Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity and Uranus retrograde in your House of Philosophy, meaning that any risks you are willing to take to express yourself now could yield some quite surprising dividends; be willing to push your comfort zone as vulnerability and honesty could really be your forte right now. Hell, you might even be a poet and don’t know it!

 

Libra- With Mars in your House of Foundation inconjunct to the Sun in your House of Dreams, a very valuable lesson may await you this week in the mostly unlikely place or under the most unexpected circumstances. Neptune in your House of Work inconjunct to both Venus in your sign and Mercury in your House of Groups could likely provide you with some real significant insights if you’re could just manage to shut up for once instead of always needing to point out some injustice or other. Acceptance is a great form of spiritual insight when it allows one to see something clearly for what it is, no matter how you may feel about it one way or the other. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth will be aligning nicely with Neptune, and this will likely refer to how the lesson previously mentioned will truly make you wise, that is, if you’re willing to go with the flow.

 

“The only wisdom we can hope to acquire

Is the wisdom of humility; humility is endless.”

-T.S. Eliot

 

Scorpio- Neptune in your House of Romance inconjunct to both Mercury in your House of Public Image and Venus behind the scenes could see you surprising someone by your interest in them. After all, an intense knockout like you wouldn’t be expected to have a crush, most folks would just assume you crush the world on a daily basis with that smoldering charisma of yours. The truth however, is that you’re a mushy little romantic just like everyone else, who is susceptible to embarrassing obsessions and wondering if Mr. or Ms. Fabulous even notices you. Uranus retrograde in your House of Relationships aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Communication could be like a cat that’s got your tongue, but don’t worry, quite often it’s the look of love rather than small talk that say’s it all; and you got a patent on that kind of intensity! As the song goes;

 

“The look of love

Is saying so much more than

Just words could ever say

And what my heart has heard

Well it takes my breath away”

 

Sagittarius- The Sun in your House of Philosophy is inspiring you to imagine a better situation for yourself, although an inconjunct of the Sun to Mars in your House of Self Worth is leaving you feeling a little depressed about how to actually get to such a place. Some additional inconjuncts between Neptune in your House of Home and Family with both Venus in your House of Dreams and Mercury in your House of Philosophy could possibly offer some valuable insights here, but only if you’re willing to honestly acknowledge how your family relationships (or lack thereof) have established the foundations for whatever it is you currently believe about yourself. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth aligning with Uranus retrograde and the Sun entering your House of Public Image can certainly help now with breaking any unhealthy patterns you may have, although it will probably be Jupiter in your House of Secrets aligning with Neptune who’ll be asking the really important question when you are challenged with, “Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?” What’s your answer?

 

Capricorn- If you think telling someone what they want to hear as opposed to telling the truth will solve a current problem at work, you’ll soon learn otherwise as Venus in your House of Career inconjuncts Neptune in your House of Communication and The Sun in your House of Transformation inconjuncts Mars retrograde in your sign. If it isn’t pointed out that the current problem is the fault of the person who caused it, then it will have to be somebody’s, just be careful you’re not elected as the scapegoat. As the Sun moves into your House of Philosophy later in the week, he’ll be aligning beautifully with both Saturn retrograde in your sign, and Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity, meaning that if you had the stones to speak the truth to the pompous buffoon that was trying to palm off excuses, then the chickens will certainly be going home to roost; but it won’t be your address they’ll be going to. Stay honest, stay strong, stay safe!

 

Aquarius- You may start out the week believing what you want to believe, especially with Venus in your House of Philosophy inconjunct Neptune in your House of Self Worth. The only problem is, with the Sun in your House of Relationships inconjunct Mars behind the scenes, there will also be someone keeping score on the situation and they may not necessarily be a fan of you or what you believe is true. Jupiter in your House of Public Image will also be aligning with Neptune, which could help you dodge a bullet by smelling the poo before you put your foot in it, especially if you can hold on until the Sun crosses into your House of Transformation and aligns with Uranus retrograde in your House of Foundations and Saturn retrograde behind the scenes. Everyone makes errors in judgment at some point, but not everyone can walk it back into a coup d’e tat that makes their initial ill informed illusion look like a stroke of genius, congratulations.

 

Pisces- Neptune in your sign inconjunct Venus in your House of Transformation may have you doubting your ability to meet a new challenge, yet at the same time, the Sun in your House of Work inconjunct Mars retrograde in your House of Dreams won’t let you just sit back and give up. What to do? At this point enter Jupiter in your House of Philosophy to lead the cheering section and amp up the inspirational rhetoric, while at the same time the Sun entering the sign of Virgo will form an earthy Grand Trine with Uranus and Saturn, a trio of badass mercenaries representing all the “Lawyers, Guns, and Money” you’ll need. Can you hear the bugle cry of the cavalry coming to the rescue yet? When the Full Moon arrives in your sign at the end of the week you’ll probably be feeling a lot less stressed. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good, and this week will be one of those times.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #46 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/30-8/5, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/30-8/5, 2018

 

  • It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

                                                                   –Charles Dickens “A Tale of Two Cities”

 

Aries- As the Moon enters your sign in the middle of the week and aligns with Mars, ambition will be at the top of your agenda, although discretion may actually be the better part of valor for you right now as Mars is retrograde in your House of Dreams and it squares unpredictable Uranus in your House of Self Worth. There will be a lot of chaotic energy flying around out there now and though it would be easy to get caught up in it and feel a desire to push matters, perhaps it would be wiser to hunker down and let the storm blow out, especially with 5 retrograde planets (including Mercury) creating a vortex of inertia beyond your control. If you’re set on a goal, go after it this week as though you were fishing rather than running the 100-yard dash and you might just end up alright.

 

Taurus- Your patience could be severely tested this week as a combination of unpredictable Uranus in your sign and Mars retrograde in your House of Public Image enter into a volatile square. Demands made upon your time and sanity by clients or associates who could really care less whether or not you are being inconvenienced could put you in a bad place if you let it, so don’t let it! Jupiter in your House of Relationships will have you feeling like you need to be all things to all people, but you can’t, so don’t try. There are 5 retrograde planets now so if someone you’re dealing with has visions of manifest destiny, let them knock themselves out trying to contradict Mother Nature or some other such nonsense, just make sure they don’t knock you out as well.

 

Gemini- Trying to unreasonably push ahead an agenda now could result in a complete disaster, especially if you think that mendacity and bullying are the way to go. Uranus in your House of Confinement would indicate that there are forces marshaling against you behind the scenes, while Mars retrograde in your House of Philosophy squaring Uranus means that these forces are likely more formidable than you realize and could deliver you a rather unpleasant surprise. Mercury retrograde in your House of Communication and the sign of Leo represents a further warning that it might just be better to shut up now than running your mouth as you customarily do, after all “loose lips sink ships”……think about it.

 

Cancer- Mercury retrograde in your House of Self Worth moving into an inconjunct with Pluto retrograde in your House of Relationships (and Open Enemies) is giving you a valuable tidbit of info now that you should take the time to contemplate. Especially since Mars retrograde in your House of Transformation is about to enter into an explosive square with Uranus in your House of Groups. Some interesting information about a former adversary could fall into your hands that would be extremely damaging to this person if it were to get out. What you do with this newfound intelligence should not be decided either emotionally or ethically, but rather strategically. What goes around comes around and maybe it’s time for the injustices that were done to you to be corrected. As the Sun moves into a Square with Jupiter in your House of Creativity try to curb any dramatic or self-righteous urges to avenge yourself, instead remember the old Sicilian proverb, “Revenge is a dish best served cold.”

 

Leo- Mars retrograde in your House of Relationships (and Open Enemies) is about to enter into a violent square with Uranus in your House of Public Image. Someone is looking to shoot you down and they don’t much care how they do it. Mercury retrograde in your sign inconjunct Pluto retrograde in your House of Work could mean that the attack against you could come via the rumor mill, so be careful who you share your business with. There are 5 retrograde planets now (including Mars, the Planet of War) meaning that any offensives embarked upon now will likely fail, although the old cliché that the best offense is a good defense would be a prudent strategy at this time.

 

Virgo- If you find that weird events are disrupting your daily routines then perhaps these routines are really control issues that are preventing you from growing. Uranus in your House of Philosophy will be urging you to bust out of the box, while Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity will start to systematically show you what isn’t working anymore, not to drive you crazy, but rather to set you free. Mars retrograde in your House of Work likely represents the old you that needed approval before you’d do anything, while the previously mentioned Uranus squaring Mars is the new you that don’t need shit from shinola except the room to go where you want to. As the song goes, “You gotta make your own kind of music, sing your own special song, make your own kind of music, even if no one else sings along.” Word!

Libra- Saturn retrograde in your House of Symbolic Foundations has been shaking you up at your very core for a while now, so with Uranus in your House of Transformation aligning with Mr. Saturn as well as squaring Mars retrograde in your House of Creativity, it is important at this time to follow your creative urges wherever they may lead. You are in that rare zone now that is alternately frightening, unnerving, exhilarating, and revolutionary and it’s your destiny that you should take it to the limit! For the next 3 weeks Mercury retrograde in your House of Dreams will provide the insight necessary to put any ideas you have been working on into the best package possible, so get back to the drawing board and let this revolutionary new work you’re doing tell you what it needs. You’re nurturing a baby now, so be kind to it…..and yourself.

 

Scorpio-Your relationships with your siblings could be about to change in ways that might seem extreme, although important changes in our lives often seem a little daunting at first. Mars retrograde in your House of Home squaring Uranus in your House of Relationships could mean these changes will likely stem from some sort of crisis, and with Saturn retrograde in your House of Communications also involved, whatever this unexpected happening is, it will require everyone to step up in one way or another beyond what they’re usually comfortable with. Jupiter in your sign will undoubtedly have you taking the lead (whether you want to or not) and as the King of the Planets aligns with Neptune in your House of Creativity, this could just be you acting out a sense memory from a past life when you were the one in charge of these yokels. Let your soul remember and everything should  be fine.

 

Sagittarius- How much is enough? You may find that you’re asking yourself that question this week as lunatic Uranus in your House of Work squares Mars retrograde in your House of Communications and you realize that your job is making you feel like a donkey pulling an oversize cart, complete with being whipped, screamed at, and exploited for the whole nine yards. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth may have you feeling there’s a reason to put up with this, but if so, what could the reward possibly be and when is it coming? Jupiter behind the scenes aligning with Neptune retrograde in your House of Symbolic Foundations would suggest your subservience is a worthiness issue, essentially meaning that if you’re smarter than your boss (and you certainly are) why don’t you SERIOUSLY start looking for another situation where you talents will be appreciated and respected instead of being treated like shit (or worse, not even considered)? “Mistreat me once, shame on you. Mistreat me twice, shame on me.”

 

Capricorn- Just like the old Jefferson Airplane song went, “Up against the wall, motherf*cker…. tear down the wall,” it’s time this week for you to pushback against whatever is cornering you, either at work, play, or on the battlefield of your inner emotional landscape. Mars retrograde in your House of Self Worth is squaring Uranus in your House of Creativity, which would speak to an explosion of desires and ideas, especially if your daily routines as of late have been more about what others need than what you need. With Saturn retrograde in your sign, as well as 3 other retrograde planets in the lower half of your chart, the focus of energy at this time needs to be on your personal spiritual evolution. Add to this Mercury retrograde in your House of Transformation, and it would be fair to say the time has come for a cathartic reordering of your priorities and an acceptance of how your circumstances need to change to accommodate this. “BREAK ON THROUGH TO THE OTHER SIDE!”

 

Aquarius- Having Mars retrograde in your sign and squaring Uranus in your House of Symbolic Foundations could make this one of the most frustrating weeks you have experienced in a long time. Your usually independent and innovative nature is going to be challenged by weirdness, inconvenience, uncooperative people, and just overall bullshit in general from nearly every quarter. Mercury retrograde in your House of Relationships will be moving into an inconjunct with Pluto retrograde behind the scenes, meaning you should pay close attention to who is there for you during this time and who isn’t. Remember the old proverb, “Action talks and bullshit walks” and you’ll learn a very valuable lesson about who your friends are. On an up note, Jupiter aligning nicely with Neptune in your House of Earnings should help you find your center and hopefully some unexpected solutions. “Keep the faith, baby.”

 

Pisces- Your patience and faith in someone is admirable, although what will it take before you realize your loyalty is unfounded? Mars retrograde behind the scenes squaring Uranus in your House of Communications has you bending over backwards in a situation that just might snap you in half if you’re not careful. You are in a situation where time is of the essence, however, with Mercury retrograde in your House of Maintenance inconjunct Pluto retrograde in your House of Dreams, the writing on the wall is clearly showing you may very well run out of track on this journey. Someone else’s incompetence may be the immediate cause here, but your inability to put your foot down when there was still time to do something else will likely turn out to be the real mistake here. With Jupiter in your House of Philosophy aligning with Neptune in your sign, you should give a listen to the Alice Cooper song, “No More Mister Nice Guy”…..it’s a lesson you need to learn.

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #43 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/9-7/15, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/9 -7/15, 2018

 

Hi kids!!!

 

SCOTUS Haikus

“The right to choose is

Universal Law, not just

That of any land

 

If freedom can be

Given or taken away

Then no one is free

 

Let Congress and the

President take note, no one

Has that many votes.”

 

Aries- The New Moon this week in your House of Symbolic Foundations opposing Pluto retrograde in your House of Career will likely bring up some loose ends in a project you’re involved with that may require you to rethink, or even rework, something you were convinced was a done deal. At first this could be very frustrating for your “full speed ahead” mentality, but with Venus entering Virgo and your House of Work and forming a Grand Earth Trine with Uranus in your House of Earnings and Saturn retrograde in your House of Career, any t’s you have to re-cross or I’s you have to re-dot will make you quite glad you did, especially since Jupiter also goes station/direct this week in your House of Death and Resurrection, meaning that any steps back you have had to take as of late will no doubt result in at least two corresponding steps forward quite soon.

 

Taurus- Your attitudes have been changing for a while, but it will likely be this week that you’ll finally see someone different when you look at yourself in the proverbial mirror. Uranus currently in your sign has had a lot to do with this, but now that it is approaching a Grand Earth Trine with Venus entering Virgo in your House of Creativity and Saturn retrograde in your House of Philosophy, expect to witness yourself doing and saying things that you never would have thought possible just a few months ago. A good part of this change in yourself might seem awkward with the New Moon in emotional Cancer and your House of Communication opposing Pluto retrograde in your House of Philosophy, as you find that sharing more of yourself will leave you feeling more vulnerable than what you were brought up to think was proper and/or safe. Don’t worry, with Jupiter going direct in your House of Relationships you’re a big boy/girl now and could probably even teach Mom and Dad a thing or two about being an adult.

 

Gemini- With the New Moon in the sensitive sign of Cancer and your House of Self Worth opposing Pluto in your House of Transformation, this needs to be a time of necessary compromise on your part if you expect to accomplish anything at all. The approaching Grand Earth Trine of Uranus in your House of Confinement, Saturn retrograde in your House of Transformation, and Venus in your House of Symbolic Foundations, would speak to the need to adjust to the unexpected as though it were a great new idea you don’t understand yet, as opposed to something that either frightens or disappoints you. You should also be careful of a tendency to take the path of least resistance when you’re confronted with making a mistake. In other words, don’t play the blame game or be willing to lie just to get out of an awkward moment, especially if there are witnesses or people committed to finding out what the truth is; Try not to be made an example of for something that’s hardly worth sacrificing your reputation and standing for, especially if it ends up with you be hung in effigy in the public square.

 

Cancer- The New Moon in your sign this week opposes Pluto in your House of Relationships and aligns with Jupiter going direct in your House of Creativity and Romance, which could mean that you may finally start to feel like you’re coming out of a long funk that has made the Summer up until now feel like nothing more than a cloudy day at the beach. A Grand Earth Trine between Uranus in your House of Groups, Venus in your House of Communications, and Saturn retrograde in your House of Relationships could see you reconnecting with old friends and getting your social life back on track like it was before the last set of exciting changes you remember turned into what has recently become a new obstacle course of stressful responsibilities. If you can manage to stay in the moment instead of dwelling on a negative past or fearing an uncertain future, then you should be able to, as the song goes, “Take it to the limit, one more time….”

 

Leo- If you have been unwilling to confront your emotions, a setback at work could trigger you to finally admit how dissatisfied you are with how your life seems to be slipping away without anything to show for it. At first this will be really depressing, but then a Grand Trine in earth comprised of Uranus in your House of Career, Venus in your House of Self Worth, and Saturn retrograde in your House of Work could likely end up motivating you to get your ass in gear and do something different than just complain and maintain the status quo. Jupiter going station/direct in your House of Symbolic Foundations and the deep, dark sign of Scorpio should be a motivating force as it chafes against outspoken Mercury in your sign, who it turns out is envisioning so much more for you than what you’re currently doing. If you feel you’re currently lack confidence, Mr. Saturn would suggest that you stop thinking of it as a pre-requisite one must start with, instead courage is usually something you acquire along the way after first being naïve enough to be absolutely sure of something and then finding out otherwise.

 

Virgo- As Venus enters your sign this week it will first trine Uranus in your House of Philosophy and then trine Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity, which could result in a sudden desire to head in a new direction and abandon something you’ve been working on for a while. Your natural critical faculties will be on hyper alert now, so pay attention to what you’re actually doing by projecting whatever it is you subconsciously don’t like about yourself onto an activity that up until now has seemed important to you. The New Moon in your House of Dreams opposing Pluto retrograde in your House of Creativity is a cathartic influence, for sure, but maybe you’re really supposed to confront your lack of internal motivation now instead of abandoning a ship that may not actually be sinking?  Jupiter going station/direct in your House of Communication, where it will both trine Neptune in your House of Relationships and square Mercury behind the scenes, could be the cue for you to reach out and talk to someone about what’s bothering you before you act out something with a friend or partner you may regret later.

 

Libra- This week’s New Moon in your House of Career opposite Pluto in your House of Symbolic Foundations may end up speaking to some deep seeded ideas that you’re going to have to let go of in order to succeed in the future. Venus entering your House of Confinement could bring up issues of self-love as she aligns with both Uranus in your House of Transformation and Saturn retrograde at the lowest point in your chart, meaning the time is ripe now for you to take a new approach regarding the expectations you have about what you deserve in life. The danger here is that you’ve inadvertently confused the low road with the high one in so far as you’re all to willing to always be the better person as the shmucks and hustlers are getting the better stuff. The Universe will always make room for true excellence, so stop believing that only shit rises to the top; that may be true in a cesspool but that’s not where you are or what you’re offering. As Jupiter goes station/direct in your House of Self Worth and squares Mercury in your House of Dreams, be willing to point out to others how you are that multi-faceted diamond in the rough and then trust people will be able to sense the difference between quality and plonk.

 

Scorpio- As Jupiter goes station/direct this week in your sign and squares Mercury in outspoken Leo, this could be the time to make a case for yourself on the career front. Your ambitions during this period should also be supported by the New Moon in your House of Philosophy opposing Pluto in your House of Communication, which is about the confidence to ask for what you want rather than waiting for it to be offered. A Grand Earth Trine of Uranus, Venus, and Saturn retrograde will be occurring in your Houses of Partnerships, Dreams, and Communication respectively, so make sure you get out there and let the world know you’re available. Anytime Uranus is involved there is a possibility for a surprise, so be willing to reach beyond whatever you think your current capabilities are; you’re ready to move to the next level and you just might get the opportunity!

 

Sagittarius- Co-dependency can be a truly insidious thing because it can sneak up on you before you realize what’s happening. Hopefully Jupiter going station/direct behind the scenes in the power driven sign of Scorpio and squaring Mercury in your House of Philosophy will help you to realize that by trying to constantly win with a negative person you’re only becoming just like them! The New Moon opposing Pluto retrograde in your House of Self Worth represents the need to liberate yourself as soon as possible from these kinds of energy vampires in your life, and that means do what ever you need to do; wear garlic, carry a wooden stake, get a gun with silver bullets, just do it! Uranus in your House of Work will be part of a Grand Earth Trine this week with both Venus in your House of Career and Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth, meaning that any efforts you’re willing to make to push your prospects in the workplace now could see an opportunity appear unexpectedly, just like the air bubbles that let you know the fish are biting! Cast that line!

 

Capricorn- As this weeks New Moon opposes Pluto on your Relationship axis you’re going to have to decide what needs to go, either a person you’ve been with too long, or the practical, logically unassailable excuses you always come up with about being too busy for a relationship? Uranus in your House of Romance could end up bringing something unexpected as it aligns with Venus and upsets the apple cart in your House of Long Distance Affairs, perhaps drawing to you an exotic stranger who gets under your defenses and seduces you with their mysterious style? As the saying goes, nothing is true, everything is permitted, so why not let yourself go? Jupiter going station/direct in your House of Dreams and aligning with Neptune in your House of Communication could serve to soften you a little, so that when Mercury in your House of Intimacy makes that pass you will follow like the sailors who were drawn into the rocks by the Sirens; Oooh la la !!!  Hurts so good, doesn’t it?

 

Aquarius- The New Moon in your House of Work opposing Pluto behind the scenes could very likely represent the changes you’ve been hoping for, that is, if you can get out of the rut of believing that better times must necessarily always be in the future; perhaps you are overlooking something quite special that’s been right in front of you all along? As Jupiter goes station/direct in your House of Career and squares Mercury in your House of Partnerships, what may look like a difficult situation could actually be just the challenge you need to show what you’re capable of? A Grand Earth Trine in your Houses of Foundations, Legacies, and Hidden Things would insinuate there might very well be buried treasure right in your back yard, but only if you can discontinue your habitual skepticism and aren’t adverse to a little digging. What have you got to lose anyway, except what you’ve convinced yourself of that may not be true?

 

Pisces- The Sun in your House of Creativity opposing Pluto in your House of Dreams could be about realizing that your future success may be more about what you need to let go of rather than what you need to acquire. Jupiter going station/direct in your House of Philosophy will help you with this, as it squares Mercury in your House of Work and brings you to the realization that you’ll never earn anymore than you think you’re worth. Keeping that in mind, how much do you value yourself as opposed to needing someone else’s approval? This week’s Grand Earth Trine in your Houses of Communication, Dreams, and Relationships would suggest putting more time and effort into being what you feel you need to be rather than what someone else may need you to be. Likewise, Mars retrograde behind the scenes in your chart at this time is more about strategy than action; so take a few moments to be clear on whom you are before you try to prove to anyone what you are.

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

God grant me the serenity

To accept the things I cannot change;

Courage to change the things I can;

And wisdom to know the difference.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #40 Weekly Horoscopes for 6/18-6/24, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 6/18-6/24, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Glad to have you back here at Mr. Saturn’s Stars. I hope you enjoyed last weeks Tarot/Haiku Interlude as much as Mrs. Saturn and I enjoyed our vacation.

Now, are you ready to get back to some hardcore horoscopes!!! Yeah? Well then let’s go!!!

 

 Aries- Pride and appreciation could both be big themes for you this week, which could lead to some tense moments and even some disappointments. Nevertheless, try to understand that the overall lesson here should not revolve around anyone’s ego, but respect. The Sun entering Cancer should make you a little more sensitive than usual and its sextile to Uranus in your House of Self Worth should make you a little more reactionary, and if that weren’t enough, Venus will be opposing Mars with both of them being squared by a Scorpio Moon later in the week, all of which could be a recipe for either big passion or big frustration. By the weekend Mercury at the bottom of your chart will be opposing Pluto at the top, helping you to see the truth and let go of any feelings of anger, resentment, or even jealousy, in favor of healing and forgiveness spurred on by Jupiter retrograde in your House of Transformation working with kind and compassionate Neptune retrograde behind the scenes.

 

Taurus- Taurus is a fixed Earth Sign, grounded and stable, like an old, tall tree in the forest, but hopefully not like a stick in the mud when the rains of change start pouring down. There will be a fixed Grand Cross for you this week, beginning with rebellious Uranus in your sign opposing a Scorpio Moon in your House of Relationships, which will likely be all about getting your way in a situation no matter what. The second opposition that will complete the cross will be Venus in your House of Foundations and Mars in your House of Public Image, meaning pride won’t be just one of the seven deadly sins for you this week, but possibly all of them (perhaps with a little wrath mixed in). The light at the end of this tunnel vision will likely come over the weekend, when noble Jupiter retrograde trines compassionate Neptune retrograde and the investigative team of both Mercury and Pluto oppose each other to reveal this recent stubbornness on your part not to be the selfishness and ego you’ve been hiding behind, but rather a little bit of fear mixed with a lot of insecurity because, after all, change makes you very uncomfortable.

 

Gemini- This could be your Wizard of Oz week as a Fixed Grand Cross of Uranus, Mars, Venus, and the Moon combine with a new Cancer Sun in your House of Self Worth to re-enact the famous scene in the movie in which the curtain showing the massive, shouting face of the Wizard is pulled back by Toto to reveal a feeble old man hoping to fool the world into believing he’s something more than he is. What may turn out to be a surprise about all this (just as it was in the film) is that your true identity (just like that of the Wizard) with its modesty and insecurity is actually far more attractive (and inspiring) to those around you than the tougher image you feel a need to project. With Neptune transiting now through your House of Public Image it will be important for you to battle this tendency to hide your vulnerability behind a tough facade, for in actuality it is your natural sensitivity that is probably the most powerful tool you have in the face of your current circumstances.

 

Cancer- With the Sun entering your sign this week and aligning with Uranus in your House of Dreams and Saturn in your House of Relationships, this is a time when you will need to be appreciated and that must necessarily begin with you. Keeping that in mind, Venus in your house of Self Worth opposing Mars in your House of Transformation would speak to keeping your needs in perspective when others start making excessive demands on both your time and sanity. You pride yourself on being a caretaker so begin by taking care of yourself. Mercury in your sign opposing Pluto in your House of Relationships will add to your natural intuition as it offers insights into the motivations of both those who love you and those who oppose you. In the meantime, Jupiter in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune in your House of Philosophy will provide a decidedly Magickal aspect to your personality now, which may assist you in finding an esoteric solution to an obstacle that had previously seemed insurmountable. Believe in yourself and tap the heels of those magick slippers together, you didn’t end up with them by accident.

 

Leo- The activist and/or protector in you could be activated this week, as Mars in your House of Relationships opposes Venus in your sign and Uranus at the top of your chart opposes a Scorpio Moon at the bottom. Both injustice and bullies offend you and with the Sun moving behind the scenes into the super sensitive sign of Cancer, your heartstrings could be seriously tugged at now by either an individual or a group of people who are being victimized by unfortunate circumstances or unscrupulous individuals. Pluto in your House of Work opposing Mercury behind the scenes, along with Jupiter in your Home area aligning with Neptune in your House of Transformation, could contribute to you making discoveries either on the job or involving your family that will put a new spin on the actions of certain people whom you thought you knew, but it turns out you really didn’t. Once you know the facts, make sure to trust your own sense of truth to determine the right way to react.

 

Virgo- An unexpected problem this week could wind up being an unexpected blessing, it will all depend on your perspective as well as a sense of irony. Mars in your House of Work opposing Venus behind the scenes could find you thrust into a position of leadership on the job, an irony that will not be lost on you considering how much you have avoided playing the politics game at work because you think it’s a bunch of bullshit. The simple fact though is that you are the most qualified person to step in if the shit has hit the fan. Kind of like Burt Lancaster in From Here to Eternity; he’s the Sargent who really runs the base but when his girl suggests he take the officer’s exam he replies, “But I hate Officers!” All Mr. Saturn has to say is, “get over yourself, be a success!” Mercury in your House of Groups opposing Pluto in your House of Creativity could be of  assistance in your position of newfound responsibility in the form of you coming up with a better way to do whatever it is you’re now in charge of. Top it off with Jupiter and Neptune making everyone love you for it and you’ll see why it was suggested that a sense of irony would be important at this time.

 

Libra- As the Sun enters your House of Career and aligns with Uranus in your House of Transformation, the time may have finally come for you to get out there and make some noise. This ambitious theme will be reiterated as Mars in your House of Creativity opposes Venus in your House of Groups and Dreams. What you had thought was too personal and of little interest to most people might actually be quite universal. Mercury is also in your House of Career and it is opposing Pluto at the Foundation of your chart, meaning when we are honest with ourselves and what we feel, it will resonate with those of like mind and maybe there are more of them out there than you figured. Meanwhile, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Earnings aligning with Neptune Retrograde in your House of Work could bring back someone from the past that wants to return a favor for something you did but have forgotten about. The tumblers in the universal lock could very well be falling into alignment, so don’t be surprised if some doors start to open.

 

Scorpio- The story of Oedipus is famous for a reason; it is an archetypal theme of competition and incest that resonates deeply. With Uranus now in your House of Relationships and the Sun entering the sign of Cancer and your House of Philosophy, expect the deeper connections between your parents and you to start to emerge; not as dramatically as the Doors performing “The End,” but intense enough for sure. Mercury is also transiting through your House of Philosophy and as it opposes Pluto in your House of Communication, this could be a good time to start to explore some form of therapy to help you engage with the deeper parts of your nature, so consider perhaps going to a see a conventional therapist or even a legitimate Psychic, Tarot Reader, or Astrologer. Scorpio is the deepest and darkest of the signs, but within those depths are the secrets and realizations that can set you free. With Neptune now retrograde in your House of Creativity aligning with Jupiter retrograde in your sign, this could be the time to let your subconscious out to play; experiment with some automatic writing, meditation, or formal ritual practice, you may be glad you did.

 

Sagittarius- As the Sun enters into your House of Transformation and aligns with Uranus, you may finally be willing to push back at a person or situation that’s been bothering you. Venus in your House of Philosophy and Mars in your House of Communication will likely motivate you to speak up for yourself, so first make sure you take the time to examine how you really feel about the way you’re being treated, especially over the coming weekend as a Scorpio Moon behind the scenes may have you feeling some resentment toward either a relative or a co-worker who really has no respect for you. Mercury in your House of Transformation opposing Pluto in your House of Self Worth could very well act as a liberating force right now to help you see more clearly the connection between how you feel about yourself and how much you earn. It’s important to remember that the art of negotiation is about asking for more than you want in order to make the other person feel good about talking you down to what you really wanted.

 

Capricorn- As the Sun enters your House of Relationships and Uranus enters your House of both Creativity and Romance, get ready for a relationship or work situation to either suddenly blossom or disintegrate. The good news is that whatever happens will likely be initiated by you, as you’re suddenly hit by the realization that life is too short to fart around. Mars in your House of Self Worth and Venus in your House of Transformation would agree, especially by the time the weekend rolls around with a Scorpio Moon entering into your House of Dreams to square the God of War and the Goddess of Love. Mercury is also in your House of Relationships and he will make you want to express your feelings, for better or worse, especially since the Messenger Planet is opposing transformative Pluto in your sign, which is nothing short of a complete liberation from rules or attitudes that restrict who you want to be in any way, shape, or form.

 

Aquarius- If you’re sick of your job then the time may have come for you to finally look for something else. The Sun entering your House of Work and Uranus shaking up your Foundation are both aligning with Saturn behind the scenes, making it clear once and for all that the situation you are currently in is tantamount to death if you remain there. Mars in your sign will give you all the energy you need to search for a new situation, while Venus passing through your House of Relationships would speak to both new connections as well as being able to rely on those you’ve worked with in the past to spread the word that you’re now available. Mercury is also in your House of Work and as the Messenger Planet aligns with both Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career and Neptune retrograde in your House of Self Worth, look at things this way, if you’re still worried about whether or not you’re doing the right thing by leaving your job then consider this- all the planets I’ve just mentioned are in water signs, therefore, if it “feels right” to be leaving then get the hell out and don’t look back!

 

Pisces- This is not the time for you to be a wallflower or shy in any way, especially at work. Mars behind the scenes may have you feeling a little anxiety about being ambitious, yet Venus in your House of Work is trying to tell you that there is certainly opportunity present if you’re interested. The Sun entering your House of Creativity aligning with Uranus in your House of Communication may inspire you toward some bright ideas to improve things on the job. If that’s the case, then make sure you share these ideas with someone who can not only help you implement your plan, but also make sure you’re adequately compensated for the contribution. Mercury is also in your House of Creativity and the Messenger Planet is moving into a Grand Trine with both Jupiter and Neptune, both of whom are retrograde. In the past you have held yourself back in work situations by not feeling as though you were the leadership type, if that’s the case now then look to the Grand Trine that was just mentioned to help you learn to trust yourself and your intuition about what is right in a situation. The best leaders operate on instinct so start testing yours.
