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.

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

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

 

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

Now for some Horoscopes!

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

Hi kids!!! Glad to have you back.

 

“I do not know which to prefer,

The beauty of inflections

Or the beauty of innuendoes,

The blackbird whistling

Or just after. “

-Wallace Stevens

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #25 Weekly Horoscopes for 2/26-3/4, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 2/26 – 3/4, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. In case you didn’t know, I am a New Yorker and proud of the fact that “assault weapons” are banned in our state. I <3 NY

 

 Aries- A word to the wise; you may be your own worst enemy this week so if you’re feeling antsy try counting to 10 (or 100 if necessary) to prevent your natural impetuousness from ignoring the writing on the wall that’s telling you to take it slow and go with the flow. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Career are making sure you’re moving along steadily like the little engine that could, yet it’s Mars in Sagittarius squaring a whole crowd of Pisces planets behind the scenes that has you not trusting that the limits confronting you now are there for a reason. Your animal totem is the Ram, so you naturally associate strength with the ability to relentlessly forge ahead without a break, however, with Venus in your House of Psychic Power aligning with Jupiter, the time has come for you to learn about “The Voice of the Silence,” that awareness which enables one to hear their inner wisdom, “just as the form to which the clay is modeled, is first united with the potter’s mind.”

Taurus- As a Fixed Earth Sign you certainly have your control issues, however, the time has come for you to realize that the need for control is really just a lack of trust in your ability to creatively adjust to a situation. A bunch of Pisces Planets in your House of Dreams no doubt have you fantasizing about your ambitions, yet in the meantime Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy and Jupiter in Your House of Partnerships are trying to remind you that there are certain responsibilities to be performed first if you really hope to succeed. Of course now you’ll probably start feeling guilty (and lazy) about what you’re not doing, meaning that Mars in your House of Legacies will likely be the ultimate determinant here as it squares the aforementioned dreamy Pisces Planets and scares you into action. Three cheers for negative reinforcement, though it can be quite exhausting. Just make sure you get your rest after making this whole business of wanting something a lot harder than it needs to be.

Gemini- For a Mutable Air Sign known for being adaptable, you can certainly find yourself in some real power plays where you end up proving just how stubborn you can really be. For instance, if there is something that you want (or need) from a current partner or a colleague, why don’t you just try asking them directly instead of frustrating yourself by waiting for them to figure it out. You can be righteous and say they should know without you telling them, but what is that kind of attitude on your part really about? The need to always be viewed as a nice person often ends up with you not being nice to yourself and that’s ultimately no one’s fault but your own. The Lunar Arc this week will traverse your Houses of Communication, Symbolic Foundations, and Creativity, so pay special attention to saying what you mean and meaning what you say and then be willing to allow the chips to fall where they may.

Cancer- Mr. Saturn likes to say, “Luck is about who you are, not what you do.” Venus in your House of Philosophy this week aligning harmoniously with Jupiter in your House of Creativity will reinforce these words of wisdom from Mr. Saturn, but only if you’re willing to listen and go after what you want without all the doubt you normally like to sabotage yourself with ahead of time. Venus will also be aligning with Pluto this week as well, so whatever difficulties you have been going through expect to rise from the ashes like the proverbial Phoenix and move toward those glorious horizons you have been envisioning for yourself and your loved ones. If your health has been a burden as of late, make sure you take the time to rest, not only to help your body heal but also to soothe your nerves. The Lunar Arc this week will see the Moon pass through your Houses of Self Worth, Thinking, and Symbolic Foundations, meaning that whatever bad habits you’re willing to let go of now could allow you to experience that “Unbearable Lightness of Being” you’ve always dreamed would be part of your destiny.

Leo- As a Fixed Fire Sign you can have some really strange notions about the world, yet has it ever occurred to you that some of these ideas may actually illustrate how you feel about yourself rather than what the world is like? With this in mind, a bad situation may ultimately be about what you’re not doing for yourself rather than any malice being directed at you. Mars in your House of Creativity is likely frustrating you right now, however don’t assume it’s because of a lack of opportunity. To truly be creative often means having to manifest something out of nothing, which is ultimately an indication of how you feel about yourself rather than the materials that may or may not be at hand. With an abundance of mutable planets in your chart at this time your level of success will ultimately depend upon how much you’re willing to let yourself be transformed by the challenges life presents you, rather than trying to maintain a stance that is more about your ego than your evolution.

Virgo- You may be feeling cornered this week in regards to some mixed messages you’re receiving from a partner. You don’t have to be a mind reader to already know this person can be insecure and stubborn, yet what’s probably more important for you at this time is to ask yourself exactly what you want and need from this relationship. Going tit for tat with this individual is a flat waste of your time simply because it allows them to draw a line in the sand and justify whatever it is they believe. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity is all about you determining the rules of engagement for this situation, which means do what you need to do and let this person have their learning experience about just how much control one person can be allowed over another. If you’re truly coming from a place of what’s fair and you sincerely have love in your heart, then as Jupiter trines Venus this week the two of you could experience a very positive turning point in this relationship.

Libra- If you think you can detach from the emotional changes that are happening to those you care for, then you probably don’t understand the gravity of your situation. With Saturn and Pluto moving ever so slowly through your House of Symbolic Foundations, it’s important for you to realize that the whole world is transforming and in the near future your comfort zone is also going to be obliterated like a sandcastle being swept away by the incoming tide. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth aligning with Venus in your House of Daily Routines and Work could be the silver lining in this current storm cloud, provided you can go with the flow and are willing to take one for the team. You’re not in this alone, therefore realize how important it is that you respect those close to you and the sacrifices they have made so you all can get through this challenging time together. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

The first way is “me,”

The second, “you,” the third, “we,”

The fourth, “what to do?”

 

Scorpio- Your intuition is particularly sharp now, especially in terms of knowing what will be successful in regards to a creative or work project you have been given control of. Opinions are like noses, everybody has one, except right now you can really smell where the roses of success are blooming so make sure you don’t let yourself get distracted by the cheap perfume of a hater’s ego. Venus and Mercury aligning with Jupiter in your sign this week should help to put you in the right place at the right time and with the addition of Pluto in your House of Communication and Thinking and Mars in your House of Earnings, your performance, leadership, and insights should bring you some well deserved rewards. Make sure you enjoy these victor’s spoils with that special someone who was willing to wait patiently in the wings while you were out conquering the world.

Sagittarius- Your success this week may hinge on what you don’t do rather than what you feel compelled to do, especially if you’re acting out of guilt or from pressure being exerted on you by someone else. Mars in your sign now will be providing a lot of energy, just make sure that this power source doesn’t turn you into an obsessive-compulsive who can be manipulated by anyone that is able to hone in on your insecurities and approval issues. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth should help with keeping you focused, although as I began by saying, perhaps this focus should be more on recognizing what you shouldn’t be doing rather than what your insecurities or someone else’s guilt trip are compelling you to do. Refuse to be held hostage by anyone who is reminding you of your past mistakes. Mr. Saturn has a haiku for you this week;

“Regret is fear of

What needs to be done next placed

In the wrong context”

 

Capricorn- With Saturn and Pluto in your sign “The times they are a-changin’”…and with The Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in the sign of Pisces and the House governing your mental abilities, your consciousness is evolving as well. If there’s a problem existing here it would have to be Mars behind the scenes in Sagittarius attempting to pollute any new found wisdom you may have recently acquired with some all too familiar paranoid blasts from the past. Believe the messages provided to you now as Jupiter in your House of Dreams and Groups trines Venus and you receive tangible feedback that you are an important person to those you are surrounded by. Let the cheers of your supporters elevate you to meet the necessary challenges ahead.

Aquarius- Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes are currently reminding you of what still needs to be done in your career, which is probably making you feel like you’re falling behind. The mark of an advanced person (and you certainly fancy yourself one) is that they hear criticism as encouragement if it motivates them to take action. That’s the high side of this Saturn/Pluto transit so make sure you get on it. Jupiter aligning harmoniously with Venus in your House of Earnings this week could bring you an unexpected windfall or gift that could help you hear that Saturn/Pluto chatter with a bit less worry. Mars moving into aspect with Uranus in your House of Communication could be either a stroke of genius or some self-destructive rebelliousness, therefore think twice before you let your freak flag fly right now if you have hopes of eventually unfurling it from the highest mountaintop. Nuff said!!!

Pisces- With the Sun, Venus, Mercury, and Neptune in your sign and all of them aligning with Jupiter in your House of Philosophy, this could be a time of great insight, especially in areas that previously had either confused you or were of no particular consequence due to a lack of experience. These situations have probably come about because you have either been cornered by circumstances that are requiring you to do something different, or else your own ambitions have lead you to specific obstacles that must be overcome in order to succeed. Either way Mars in your House of Career and Uranus in your House of Self Worth will be pushing you to rise to the occasion and make your creative ambitions a tangible reality. Meanwhile, Saturn and Pluto in your House of Dreams will motivate you to be more thorough, responsible, and dependable toward others than you ever have before. This could be your time little fishy so stroke….stroke…..
