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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #75 Weekly Horoscopes for 3/4-3/10, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 3/4- 3/10, 2019

 

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

Hey Republicans! A word to the wise; listen to Michael Cohen and don’t be like him. It’s not too late.

 

Aries- This could be a week when you hard charging Rams are forced to become a little more reflective than usual, especially as Mercury goes station/retrograde behind the scenes in the sensitive sign of Pisces where it will meet up with a New Moon, the Sun, and Neptune, all of them combining to bring out your touchy, feely and/or insecure side. Mars going through your House of Self Worth might make you try to counteract these vulnerable feelings by applying a disproportionate amount of emotional significance to something material, however, try not to. As Mr. Saturn would say, “Be careful what you think you want it can only be just what it is.” As Saturn inches closer to Pluto in your House of Career don’t fear confronting all those insecurities you usually try to hide. By letting go you ‘re creating the space for your dreams to enter.

 

Taurus- As Mars plows through your House of Self Worth and aligns with the Sun and Neptune in your House of Dreams this is the time for you to put in the work necessary to turn a long held fantasy into a reality. When unpredictable and revolutionary Uranus enters your sign this week he will square Venus in your House of Career, meaning perhaps that as you get closer to that aforementioned ideal you might just make the same discovery that Dorothy made when she finally met the Wizard of Oz. That doesn’t mean you’ll be disappointed, on the contrary, you may instead get a very valuable lesson on both looking up to others and your own self worth.  Jupiter in your House of Transformation will help you to sort all of this out, but not until you’ve worked through all the uncomfortable details; such is the price of success.

 

Gemini- When volatile Uranus enters your House of Confinement to join aggressive Mars it may end up feeling like your whole world is crashing down as a stable situation you once took for granted suddenly turns out to be a rapidly changing landscape. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation will be all about following the rules, so if you haven’t been doing that up until now, don’t try to lie your way out of it. The Sun and Neptune in your House of Public Image may buy you a little time with excuses and delaying tactics, however, once Mercury goes through it’s retrograde period (which starts early this week) the chickens will come home to roost in about three weeks if it turns out you have been playing a little too fast and loose. Mr. Saturn’s advice? Make sure you have a good lawyer.

 

Cancer- Mercury going retrograde this week in your House of Philosophy might have you thinking about the past and the things you could have done differently. The Sun and Neptune are in the same house and as they align with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Relationships it may just turn out that you have learned your lessons about dealing with others and are finally ready to turn over a new leaf. Mars is in your House of Groups and the stable sign of Taurus and as he joins with unpredictable Uranus you might just end up being surprised to see that someone has been noticing all that hard work you’ve been doing and thinks you deserve a reward, especially with Venus entering your House of Transformation and Other People’s Money…..just sayin’.

 

Leo- Acceptance could be the key for you this week as Mercury goes retrograde in your House of Death and Transformation and a whole host of memories come out of the past to haunt you. The Sun and Neptune are also in that house and as they align with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Health you may finally begin to realize how much repressing your feelings has had a major negative impact on your quality of life. Of course this sounds obvious, but you’re a fixed sign and, well, you can be a little obtuse at times. The important thing is that you let go of patterns within yourself that no longer work so that there will be room for some new realizations in your life. When Uranus enters your House of Public Image to join Mars and square Venus, these realizations will likely arrive whether you’re ready or not, so don’t be surprised at the reactions of those who are still expecting the old you.

 

Virgo- As Blondie used to sing, “Dreaming’s for free,” however reality always costs something. When Mercury goes retrograde this week in your House of Relationships it will be accompanied by both the Sun and Neptune, meaning that whatever you believed a particular association was about may not be what it’s about now. Uranus entering your House of Philosophy to join Mars could add quite a bit of disappointment and volatility to this situation, although that might not necessarily be a bad thing, particularly if you can utilize that energy through the influence of Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity to transform it from disappointment to adaptability and move this association to it’s next level. Like Rick say’s to Louis in Casablanca, “This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

 

Libra- “The truth in a vessel is not in the amount it contains, rather it’s in the sum of what’s served.” As Mercury goes retrograde in your House of Routines try and look back on your past exchanges with those who are close to you. The Sun and Neptune aligning with Saturn and Pluto at your Foundation and Mars in your House of Transformation will be giving you a lesson now in the necessary give and take between people or, as Bernie Sanders so aptly put it in his campaign slogan, “Not me, Us.” Jupiter in your House of Thinking is asking you to seek Higher Knowledge, while Venus entering your House of Creativity is showing you the power of a Higher Love. It is important that you contemplate these lessons now in regards to how your sign is represented in an astrological chart by the glyph of a sunset, which is where the day meets the night and the great Unity symbol that is our planet turns from the light of yang to the darkness of yin and back again. Namaste.

 

Scorpio- Uranus entering your House of Relationships at this time to join Mars could really upset the apple cart for you now, especially as Uranus squares Venus at your Symbolic Foundation. Your current circumstances are allowing you no time for those who would waste such a precious commodity, especially as the Lunar Arc this week moves through your Houses of Family, Creativity, and Health and you review what all those things now mean to you at this point in your life. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Communication aligning with the Sun and Neptune in your House of Creativity will have you seeking a more spiritual way of being, and with Mercury going retrograde in the inspired sign of Pisces you will undoubtedly be quite pragmatic about those in your life who are pretending to be something they aren’t. Let philosophical Jupiter in your House of Self Worth lead you inward and upward to the holy sanctuary…. onward intrepid seeker!

 

Sagittarius- Jupiter in your sign is still pumping you up and keeping you enthused, however, when your ruling planet eventually moves on will you have the inspiration to continue feeling good all by yourself? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth have been pressuring you for a while, but now as they come closer together and align with Mars in the solid sign of Taurus they are instead trying to mentor you into developing some positive habits so that you won’t get derailed in the future. In the grand scheme of things this is about you evolving in an upward spiral rather than you devolving in an inward one. As Uranus moves into your House of Routines it will square Venus entering your House of Communication. What does this mean? Well, how many folks are you still being nice to that bring darkness into your life simply because you think being alone is worse? Meditate on that.

 

Capricorn- With Saturn and Pluto moving closer together in your sign you are no doubt feeling all the changes trying to grab on as you walk by. One of these transformative energies that has managed to get a hold of you involves your emotions as you find yourself feeling things more deeply than ever before, though not in a sentimental way. Mercury going retrograde in the sensitive sign of Pisces and your House of Communication has you more willing to talk about your feelings than ever before, and with the Sun and Neptune in the same place you may also find yourself having an epiphany or two as well. Jupiter behind the scenes is a protective influence at this time, so be willing to let your heart and spirit open in the proper place with the proper people (or person)……..As the song goes, ”I feel it in my fingers/ I feel it in my toes/ The love that’s all around me/ And so the feeling grows.”

 

Aquarius- With both the Moon and Venus currently in your sign you are probably feeling quite magnanimous, although with Uranus  (your ruling planet) entering your Foundation area anything you do toward humanity this week will undoubtedly be in your own idiosyncratic way. The Sun, Neptune, and Mercury retrograde are all in your House of Self Worth, which should provide you with all the insight and creativity you could ask for, while at the same time Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes will keep you on point so that whatever you’re trying to do will actually end up changing something for someone else besides yourself. Jupiter in Sagittarius and your House of Groups can either lead by preaching or lead by example, so make sure you have some alone time this week to determine the difference between the two……after all,

 

“The Silence is the

Teacher whose approval we

Most benefit from”

 

Pisces- The Sun, Neptune, and Mercury retrograde are all in your sign now and as they align with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Dreams this is the time to lay the foundations for where you hope to be in the not too distant future. The one thing you may want to keep in mind with these plans is that whatever it is you think you want should also take into consideration the world around you, that way you will be in harmony with the environment you’re hoping would support your success. To an evolved person this would seem obvious, however, with individualistic Uranus entering your House of Thinking and squaring Venus behind the scenes, it would be very easy to assume that whatever is good for you is automatically good for everyone else. As a result, it’s important that you make an effort to pay attention to the surrounding world and try not to stick your head up you know where.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #69 Weekly Horoscopes for 1/21-1/27, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 1/21-1/27, 2019

 

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

I would like to begin by taking a moment to acknowledge the passing last week of Medea, a very remarkable cat who was the Queen for many years at Enchantments in NYC.

The picture that accompanies this week’s horoscopes is of Medea back in 2014 when she was doing an inventory on a case of my books that had just arrived from the publisher.

My favorite memory of her is from one winter weekend back in the day when the heat went off in the store and I was forced to do my readings wearing an overcoat. During each appointment Medea lay curled up in my lap like my own personal heating pad, occasionally poking her head out from the folds of my open coat to meow at the client in apology for the cold room.

What a Charmer she was.

 

Aries- As Mars and Uranus in your sign line up with Venus and Jupiter to put stars in your eyes and pep in your step under a fiery Super Full Moon Eclipse in Leo, it will be a case of irresistible force meets immovable object, for at the same time Saturn and Pluto in your House of Career will be reminding you just how important it is to work hard and take care of business if you expect to attain all the success you’re imagining. Neptune behind the scenes should provide the right pinch of intuition as the Sun and Mercury in your House of Groups open the doors to a mixed audience of those who can help you as well as those who would feed off you. Make sure you’re listening to that wise little voice within when it tells you who’s an angel and who’s a vampire.

 

Taurus- If there is an angel and a devil within each of us, which one wins out? That’s usually determined by the one you choose to feed, so be mindful of your negative thoughts as well as your naïve fantasies this week for both could get you into trouble. Mars and Uranus behind the scenes in your chart are like an anxiety attack waiting to happen as you feel a burning need to bust out of your confines, while at the same time Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy are looking over your shoulder like a corrections officer with a very big night stick. The Sun and Mercury in your House of Career will try their best to see that cooler heads prevail, but face it, you will need to bite your tongue, remain patient, and remind yourself, like the song say’s, “All things must pass.”

 

Gemini- With Mars in your House of Groups aligning with Venus and Jupiter in your House of Relationships, your tendency now will be to believe that you can make just about anyone do your bidding, however, be careful. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Death and Transformation squaring Mars would indicate that there is more than enough opposition to what you’re thinking about doing to provide significant blowback if you push things too far. Neptune in your House of Public Image would further insinuate that you’re not fooling anyone but yourself if you think that people don’t suspect what you’re up to. Let’s hope the Sun and Mercury in your House of Philosophy can convince you to refrain from doing anything questionable, although chances are you won’t listen……Que sera sera.

 

Cancer- You have so much creative energy bubbling under the surface now it’s a miracle you don’t explode, especially since you’re bottling it up by feeling hopeless about the possibilities in your life. Likely it’s Saturn and Pluto in your House of Open Enemies squaring Mars that has you feeling this way, however, Mars in your House of Career is also about ambition and as it aligns with Venus and Jupiter in your House of Work you currently possess enough luck, charm, and talent at this time to turn yourself around if you really want to. Try to let Neptune in your House of Philosophy open you to the wisdom of your Higher Self, while at the same time let the Sun and Mercury in your House of Transformation show you the way to move beyond your immediate confines so that you can start to approach that light at the end of the tunnel…..you do see it, don’t you?

 

Leo- This week will begin with a Super Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your sign so make sure you buckle your seat belt as it could be a very bumpy ride. With Mars transiting your House of Long Distance Affairs and aligning with both Venus and Jupiter in your House of Romance, you’ll probably be feeling like running off to the circus, however, try not to be so naïve. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Routines squaring Mars will be there to remind you that you already have a life and the responsibilities of it are not going anywhere. Neptune in your House of Shared Resources could have you overestimating just about everything, so instead of dreaming about running away, instead try to direct your imagination to something more viable, like a hobby or a moonlighting that could be more. Your escape to Oz might take longer that way, but then again you won’t have your responsibilities following you like a wolf pack that smells blood. Think about it.

 

Virgo- Have you thought much recently about how in synch with your circumstances you are? You’re ready to change and so is your environment; with that in mind, what are you waiting for? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity may seem to be coming up with a lot of reasons why you can’t do something, but look at it this way, if you can think of the difficulties that await, then you can probably solve them. Neptune in your House of Partnerships might suggest you ask (or meditate) for some help, especially if you have something that someone else needs. The beginning of a beautiful friendship (as Bogey would say) might be just around the corner, especially with the Sun and Mercury passing through your House of Daily Routines and increasing the foot traffic to your little corner of the world. Keep your eyes open!

 

Libra- This week could be a mixed bag for you. There is certainly some great stuff going on, for instance, Venus conjunct Jupiter in your House of Communications aligning beautifully with Mars in your House of Partnerships likely means that good news and lucky connections are on the horizon. On the other hand, Neptune is squaring Venus and Jupiter so don’t overestimate how far your luck will go. There may still be a period of waiting and struggling in store for you despite the fact that you’ve been given a chance. Saturn moving across the bottom of your chart may be able to turn some of Neptune’s mysterious fog into creativity, although because it’s Saturn we’re back to the waiting and struggle. In the Blue’s they call this kind of mixed bag “payin’ dues” and all the best ones have to do it, so don’t complain, you’re in pretty good company.

 

Scorpio- If you’re feeling it this week (and I know you are) how’s about sharing it with the rest of us civilians who haven’t got a clue? Venus and Jupiter in your House of Self Worth are aligning with Mars and putting a rocket in your pocket, just be careful that a square of this pair to Neptune in your House of Fun doesn’t cause you to be brought down by some sad sack you mistakenly think you can help. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Communications should enable you to “give it straight” to someone who’s a flat waste of your time, thereby saving your energy for some more meaningful pursuits, such as connecting with a special someone this week’s Super Moon may just cause to parachute into your life from parts unknown (heaven perhaps?). Keep us posted.

 

Sagittarius- Saturn in your House of Self Worth and Neptune in your home area have been keeping you pretty well tethered for a while now, so maybe it’s time to be swept away by a Venus/Jupiter party on the outskirts of town where all the wild kids go to play? Mars will be there too, so you know it’ll be a real jungle gym of a venue with everybody bustin’ a move for shits and giggles. You deserve some of that action, don’t you? For God’s sake don’t think about it, just follow the directions the Super Full Moon will be sending out at the beginning of the week via your usual boredom alert and then be there or be square.

 

Capricorn- Venus and Jupiter behind the scenes no doubt have you daydreaming, and if you add to that Mars going through your Home area, you’re probably experiencing more than a little bit of wanderlust, so, what are you waiting for? Yeah, I know, Saturn in your sign is waiting for the homework that’s due or the bill that needs to be paid, but are you really going to let all your romantic notions go unfulfilled? Like the song say’s, “Two drifters, off to see the world/ There’s such a lot of world to see…” Even if you’re by yourself  for now, you can still be like Holly Golightly and follow that stray cat, just listen to the advice of the Sun and Mercury as they transit your House of Self Worth and croon at the Super Full Moon, “We’re after the same rainbow’s end, waitin’ ‘round the bend…..”

 

Aquarius- If there’s someone who “makes you wanna shout!” then by all means let them know about it as the Super Full Moon Lunar Eclipse goes off like a roman candle to start the week in your House of Relationships. Hell, bring along a guitar if you’d like, or even your own spackle bucket to drum on. You’re positively bursting with charisma at this time so it’s all good. Saturn behind the scenes may make you feel a little shy (for like a minute) but gentle Neptune in your House of Self Worth will cajole you up there on the stage and then, watch out! As the Moon finishes the week in your House of Public Image any inhibitions you might have been feeling about expressing your heart’s desire will be long gone and then you’ll know……A Star is Born.

 

Pisces- If there is anything you really want (or need) at this time just keep a smile on your face and you’ll probably get it. Venus and Jupiter are in your House of Public Image so you are positively sparkling now, plus with Mars in your House of Self Worth the Force is also with you. Even curmudgeonly old Mr. Saturn is winking, but that’s probably because Neptune in your sign is making him remember what is was like once to be young and without a care and well, even old Mr. Saturn can get sentimental. With all this good luck it would be very easy to get caught up and feel like you’re invulnerable, although the Sun and Mercury behind the scenes in universalist Aquarius will help to keep you humble, thereby making you a harmonious package of desire and holistic awareness. Namaste.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #66 Weekly Horoscopes for 12/24-12/30, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/24-12/30, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. I wish you all a happy holiday! Let’s each try to remember back to when we were young and hopeful and Christmas was magickal. I don’t know about any of you, but even Mr. Saturn can get a little mushy over a good old story about the true meaning of Christmas.

 

Aries- With Mercury in your House of Philosophy this week squaring Neptune behind the scenes, don’t be surprised if you get a bad case of the Christmas Blues this season. It doesn’t mean that you’re turning into a scrooge, instead it’s because you feel a need to experience a certain sense of idealism that is currently lacking in what seems to be going on all around you. Don’t let yourself get disappointed by all the jaded commercialism that appears to be eclipsing any true sense of the holiday spirit. Later in the week as the New Year gets closer, Venus in your House of Transformation will move into a cathartic alignment with Pluto in your House of Career. It’s entirely possible that you can follow the beat of a different drum this season without having to feel cornered like you’re the last human alive in what seems to be a Zombie Christmas Apocalypse.

 

Taurus- Don’t let your Holiday expectations make you cynical when you realize that all the Christmas lights shining on every street are not necessarily radiating the spirit of giving and brotherhood that you would like to see, especially with Mercury in idealistic Sagittarius squaring illusory Neptune in your House of Fondest Hopes and Dreams. Twice during the week the Moon will align with solid Saturn as the Lunar sphere passes through your Houses of Creativity and Relationships, meaning that if you’re willing to embody the true spirit of giving and compassion then Christmas for you and yours should be just fine. As the year comes to a close Venus in your Houses of Relationships will align with Pluto in your House of Long Distance Affairs, meaning that perhaps you should plan a trip to bring in the New Year with someone special who is currently not within hugging distance and wouldn’t mind some unexpected company?

 

Gemini- If you feel like you need to assist Santa in the overwhelming task of making everyone happy and satisfied this Holiday Season, then you may be setting yourself up for utter exhaustion or a nervous breakdown. Take care of yourself and approach the weeks festivities with a relaxed and unassuming attitude and you may be surprised that you can actually have fun without everything needing to be perfect. This is especially true at work where you might have the responsibility for the Office party thrust upon you by someone who likes to talk the talk but rarely walks the walk. In regards to any ideas you may discuss with this individual, don’t feel you have to pick up their slack when they flake out. After all, they’ll get the coal in their stocking not you.

 

Cancer- Pay careful attention this week not to take on the feelings of others, especially if they’re wearing their hearts on their sleeves and trying to pretend they’re more sensitive and deep than anyone else simply because they’re willing to act like such drama queens. The waters within you run as still and deep as it comes, so there’s no reason for you to be guilty if you don’t feel the need to perform your feelings for the peanut gallery. Your love has been fully known and felt by everyone who has ever been close to you in your entire life. Therefore, just make sure to stay present in the moment and pay attention to what others truly need and not necessarily what they would like to advertise to camouflage their own guilt.

 

Leo- As a fixed sign there is always the possibility that you can get stuck in a moment that you can’t get out of, just make sure wherever that space in time is it doesn’t inadvertently ruin someone else’s Christmas because they’re not strolling down the same memory lane as you. The theme of the season is supposed to be sharing and brotherhood. Being tolerant of how someone else wishes to experience their holiday is just as important (if not more so) than singing the correct carols, serving the correct food, or giving the correct gifts. As Venus passes through your House of Family take the time to pay attention to someone you have gotten comfortable ignoring. Maybe there are things you could have blamed them for in the past, but you’re to blame now if you can’t let shit go.

 

Virgo- Make sure to pay careful attention to your communications with a loved one, for with Mercury transiting your House of Home and squaring Neptune in your House of Relationships, misunderstandings are quite possible and could end up creating needless tension around a holiday gathering. As Felix in “The Odd Couple” once said, “when you assume you make an ass out of u and me.’ Now with that in mind, Pluto passing through your House of Creativity and aligning with Venus in your House of Communication later in the week would indicate that speaking your mind clearly and directly could open up some unexpected doors to some new and exciting possibilities, that is, if your willing to speak your truth without having to be asked.

 

Libra- Don’t underestimate the need to ignore an asshole this week. When we buy into someone else’s drama we become a character in search of an author and as such set ourselves up as minions to fate. Mercury in your House of Thinking being squared by Neptune will likely be a misplaced self-righteousness that will have you taking the bait that sets the trap (e.g.) someone needs to put this individual in their place….really? Wrong! Their stupidity, hatefulness, and obnoxiousness have nothing to do with you unless you engage. Venus in your House of Self Worth aligning with Pluto at the Foundation of your chart represents the chance to liberate yourself from being part of another’s onanistic orgy of ego so that you can instead create your own world from the inside out. Admittedly this all sounds very philosophical, but you need to work this shit out in order to create a true reality for yourself.

 

Scorpio- As Venus crosses through your First House this week you may be drawn to foolish extravagances, which will likely be compounded by the fact that Mercury in your House of Self Worth is squaring Neptune in your House of Creativity and making you believe all that glitters is gold. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth will also contribute to this nonsense, though a word to the wise, don’t mistake what you have for what you are. Pluto transiting your House of Communication will be aligning with Venus later in the week so that something you might not be able to afford at this time may just be the necessary comeuppance for you to realize what is of true value in this virtual life of illusion you have inadvertently fallen into.

 

Sagittarius- The Holiday Season could be particularly trying for you this year as you attempt to keep your head above water in a churning sea of other people’s illusions, fantasies, prejudices, and general bullshit. Mercury and Jupiter in your sign should keep you fairly personable, however, Neptune in your home and family area could make you particularly susceptible to the classic manipulations that your loved ones have used on you before, like guilt, guilt, and, oh yeah, guilt. Venus behind the scenes is a virtual guarantee you’re not the one who’ll get coal in your stocking, yet it’s not about keeping score, instead experiment with ignoring and avoiding altogether whoever you don’t want to be with this season. They’ve got no trouble pointing out where you’re lacking, so feel just as empowered to tell them you’re not available.

 

Capricorn- As the Holidays rapidly approach having Mercury and Jupiter behind the scenes would indicate that you are actually feeling the spirit this season, on the other hand, with Neptune in your House of Communications you need to be careful who you get festive with. Stay away from scrooges who will make you feel sappy and sentimental, as well as tacky Christmas freaks who wear reindeer horns everywhere and think that the North Pole and Las Vegas are connected through the same garish, fluorescent wormhole. Take your lead from a reserved Venus in Scorpio as she transits your House of Groups and aligns nicely with a very serious Pluto in your sign. Stay behind the scenes, keep your shit on the down low, and plan your celebrations around a few trusted friends and family who won’t necessarily make you watch “It’s a Wonderful Life” but will instead want to quietly celebrate one with you.

 

Aquarius- Either you’re a total Scrooge who thinks Christmas is for the intellectually inferior, or else you’re the one who dresses up like Santa and “Ho ho ho’s” everyone like a righteous preacher at a fundamentalist revival. Either way the true spirit of the season would require that you back off both stances and instead maybe volunteer with the homeless or drive a truck to deliver toys for tots. Venus is in your House of Public Image as well as the reserved sign of Scorpio, and as she aligns with Pluto behind the scenes, try and make this holiday season about humanity and charity rather than an agenda of any sort……there’ll be plenty of time next year to grind whatever ax you hope to slay the world with. “Be of good cheer.”

 

Pisces- You may be feeling especially vulnerable this holiday season with Neptune in your sign being squared by a gregarious (and often insensitive) Mercury in Sagittarius. As a result you may find yourself exhausted by the demands of friends and relatives as they each compete with one another to be the ultimate Christmas Warrior. A subdued Venus in your House of Philosophy and the discreet sign of Scorpio will likely motivate you to remain behind the scenes with those who are also feeling a little shell shocked by the twinkling commercial holocaust of gift giving and excessive spending. Be sure to take some time and review how the year went for you. If there was more love and friendship than not, then make sure you’re with those particular people. And if there was someone who was there at the times when no one else was, make sure you rendezvous with them underneath the mistletoe.

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #59

Weekly Horoscopes for 11/5-11/11, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! Welcome back to another week of Mr. Saturn’s Stars. Election Day is coming Tuesday so make sure y’all get out there and vote. If you don’t like kids put in cages at the border, voter suppression, white supremacist rhetoric, the possibility of losing your health care if you have a pre-existing condition, mass shootings of innocent people due to inadequate gun laws, or a bunch of cowardly minions representing you who are afraid to stand up to our boorish, buffoonish President, then it’s imperative that you go out and exercise the right to vote that our ancestors fought and died for. Don’t underestimate your responsibility as a citizen, everything we hold dear is at stake!!!

 

Aries- Hopefully the New Moon in Scorpio this week will inspire your natural revolutionary spirit as it passes through your House of Transformation and aligns with cathartic Pluto in your House of Public Image and inspirational Neptune behind the scenes. Add to that a beautiful creative trine between Venus retrograde in your House of Relationships and Mars in your House of Groups and you might not only be inspired to vote this week, but maybe you’ll also feel compelled to get involved with a local cause or group who are looking to make your neighborhood or workplace a better, safer environment for everyone. If there is any issue that’s close to your heart, make sure you donate some time to it this week, you’ll be glad you did.

 

Taurus- The New Moon this week will be in your House of Relationships and as it aligns with Pluto in your House of Philosophy and Neptune in your House of Groups, you may feel motivated now to fight for others who can’t fight for themselves. The activist in you could be awakened from your comfortable routine like Clark Kent running into an alley or Popeye downing his spinach; don’t resist it, the best part of you is struggling to get out and like a baby being born there will be a little discomfort involved but in the end it’ll all be worth it. Venus retrograde in your House of Service aligning with Mars in your House of Career may find you discovering that what you’re volunteering at is more enjoyable than what you’re doing to pay the bills….hmmm……has a light bulb suddenly gone on upstairs?

 

Gemini- If you’ve been going with the flow as of late, the New Moon in your House of Work aspecting Pluto in your House of Transformation and Neptune in your House of Career may have you realizing you need to get a little tougher and start to draw some boundaries or else you might find yourself being set up for a patsy, especially with Uranus retrograde behind the scenes in your chart about to awkwardly back up into your House of Groups. Mars in your House of Philosophy aligning with Venus retrograde in your House of Creativity should help with the pushback against anyone who may be trying to screw you, as a sudden influx of your natural charm will help you to kill ‘em with kindness…..just make sure you kill ‘em dead!!!

 

Cancer- The New Moon will be in your House of Creativity to start the week and as it aligns nicely with Neptune in your House of Philosophy you should be brimming with all sorts of new ideas! Venus retrograde in your House of Home and Family working with Mars in your House of Legacies could see you rejuvenating a relationship with a loved one you may have been worried about. All this person really needed was a little space for themselves, but boy do you like to worry! As Jupiter changes sign and pulls into your House of Work to join Mercury, things could start to get a little hectic on the job. You may have to put in more time at work than you’d prefer right now, but there will be some unexpected benefits on the back end that will put a little pep in your step and some extra jingle in your pocket; invest now so you can celebrate later!

 

Leo- If communication with a loved one has been difficult as of late, Venus retrograde in your House of Communication aligning with Mars in your House of Relationships should see a break through this week. The New Moon in your House of Family aligning with Neptune in your House of Legacies should further help you to recognize that whatever the disagreement might have been with this person, it’s sometimes more important to compromise and stick together than to stand alone in our righteousness. As Jupiter changes signs it will pass into your House of Creativity, meaning that if you’re willing to improvise and go with the flow a fabulous opportunity could be just around the corner.

 

Virgo- The New Moon will be in your House of Communication and as it aligns with both Neptune in your House of Relationships and Pluto in your House of Romance, a new chapter in a relationship may be ready to unfold. This will be further enhanced by Venus retrograde in your House of Self Worth lining up nicely with Mars in your House of Service, meaning that you’ll finally be able to fully understand what the Beatles meant when they sang, “the love you take is equal to the love you make,” and you arrive at the realization of just how much you enjoy the company of a partner, no matter how they may end up driving you crazy.

 

Libra- Despite the feeling that you are treading water in a rough sea and the dawn seems like it’s a lifetime away, the New Moon in your House of Self Worth will nevertheless inspire you to hold on with a vengeance as you begin to hear a little voice in your head telling you things will be okay. That voice may in fact be Jupiter as it changes signs and enters into your House of Communication where it will likely bring new opportunities, especially since it will be rapidly approaching Mercury in the same House and together those two are all about innovative ideas and solutions for whatever may be ailing you. At the same time, Venus retrograde in your sign lining up beneficially with Mars in your House of Creativity could end up bringing you some unexpected rewards for work you’ve done in the past that you’d forgotten about. It turns out there’s some truth in the old saying, “What goes around, comes around.” Cheers!

 

Scorpio- The New Moon in your sign represents just the type of cathartic rebirth you’re known for, so if things haven’t been working out as of late, don’t despair. Neptune in your House of Creativity is aligning with that New Moon, and as Pluto chips in from your House of Communication, don’t be afraid to reach out if you need help. Venus retrograde behind the scenes is in aspect to Mars in your House of Foundation, meaning that after all you’ve given to others when they’ve been down and out, you should offer someone in your debt a chance to pay you back; and that could be anything from a loving embrace to a wad of cash, after all, you deserve it. Jupiter changing signs and entering your House of Self Worth is likely signaling a significant change of fortune coming down the pike…..keep the faith baby!

 

Sagittarius-Jupiter will be returning home to your sign this week, so be prepared for whatever you’re feeling to seem overwhelming. If you’re not currently in therapy then this week’s New Moon may motivate you to start, especially since it’s going to be hidden behind the scenes and driving Pluto in your House of Self Worth and Neptune in your Symbolic Foundations area (a.k.a.  the House of Family). If you’re tired of blaming Mom and Dad for everything, now is your chance to fix stuff for yourself. Venus retrograde will be transiting through your House of Friends and aligning with Mars in your House of Communication, so if a therapist is unavailable this week you could try visiting a friend instead, just make sure it’s someone who hasn’t heard your complaints for a while; just sayin’.

 

Capricorn- The New Moon in your House of Friends may have you wondering about who you can depend on and who needs to be let loose, especially with Pluto still in your sign and Neptune wafting around your House of Communication and making you feel like you’re either a babysitter or a therapist for just about everyone you know. Venus retrograde in your House of Career and Public Image will likely be motivating you to think of the good old days when you were a rolling stone carrying no moss, and with Mars in your House of Self Worth to egg her on, old Lady Love might just drum you up a blast from the past to reminisce with. As Jupiter changes signs and enters your House of Secrets, it might just be a good idea to have somebody familiar around to share a few fantasies with; if nothing else it’ll break the monotony.

 

Aquarius- Mars in your sign aligning with Venus retrograde in your House of Philosophy will have you preaching Love this week, just make sure that you’re clear this is nothing more than your ideas about Love, that way you won’t be surprised when someone shakes their head like you’re a child and then walks away.The New Moon in your House of Career will have you so wrapped up in how to get ahead now that you might not even notice anyone walking away, particularly if your limited attention span has already figured out they can’t help with where you want to go. As Jupiter changes signs and advances into your House of Dreams, there is a very distinct danger that you may just end up being hornswoggled by the legends in your own mind; oh well, it wouldn’t be the first time.

 

Pisces- As a mutable water sign practicality is not your forte, however this week with the Scorpio New Moon in your House of Philosophy aligning with Pluto in your House of Dreams, you may just start to think of organization as a matter of convenience, especially if you end up losing your keys, I.D., debit card, or whatever, yet again. Venus retrograde in your House of Sex could have you missing a special someone from the past, particularly with Mars behind the scenes makin’ Mr. Mojo rise. Take it easy and hold on, because as Jupiter changes signs and enters your House of Public Image, your charisma may just end up going through the roof and drawing a new beau that’ll help provide a case of permanent amnesia concerning anyone else.

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/15-10/21, 2018

 

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

“Doubt requires more courage than conviction does, and more energy; because conviction is a resting place and doubt is infinite……”

-John Patrick Shanley, “Doubt”

 

Aries- You might need to let off some steam this week as Mercury and Venus embrace in your House of Transformation and Intimacy, just pay attention to who your audience is during any confessions or cuddles because in the wrong company loose lips won’t just sink ships, they may end up swallowing a career or friendship as well. As Mars moves into a square with blunt Mercury in Scorpio, be aware that your actions will have consequences, which could include anything from being chastised to getting punched in the nose….so be careful. The Lunar Arc for the week will be moving from your Public Area to behind the scenes, so be discreet and you may just be able to slip in that back door leading to profit and satisfaction…..enjoy!

 

Taurus- If you are currently in a serious professional or intimate relationship it is important that you be willing to speak the truth to your partner at this time. Try to be ahead of the curve if you see the writing on the wall, as Uranus is retrograde in your sign and you don’t want to be surprised by something you could very well have headed off at the pass. Mars transiting through your House of Career will have you in front of the Public so make sure your proverbial fly is zipped, especially as the planet of action moves into a square with Mercury in Scorpio and the haters will be working overtime at the gossip mills. The Lunar Arc will be passing from your Mid-heaven through your House of Public Image and into your House of Groups, so take your Mother’s advice and make sure you’ve got clean undies on just in case you get in an accident and the doctors need to undress you.

 

Gemini- It will be tempting to go off on some dishonest sleaze bag at work, but don’t, even if you’re justified because there could be some unexpected consequences as Mars splits the difference between Neptune and Pluto in your Houses of Public Image and Transformation respectively. Others may not hear the point you’re trying to make about fraud and incompetence, instead they may be put off by your anger and think you’re just being a hard ass. If you can be patient until Mercury gets closer to Pluto later in the week you won’t have to say anything, simply because those two planets are about secrets being revealed and the fool burning your cork has a closet full they’d like to keep under wraps. Smile, you’re on candid camera….

 

Cancer- Mercury in your House of Creativity will be moving into an alignment with both Neptune in your House of Philosophy and Pluto in your House of Relationships, which could mean you’ll find yourself in a position to be an aesthetic guru of sorts for an upcoming event. Your sense of taste along with your naturally romantic nature will be activated by these transits, so don’t hesitate to throw your two cents in the bucket of ideas relating to how the festivities should proceed. Just make sure you’re sense of charm also shows up, simply because you might inadvertently end up showing someone up without intending to, especially with Mars going through your House of Transformation and making you as forceful and energetic as your ideas are inspired.

 

Leo- While at times you can be as sensitive as a pussycat, there are also moments when you can seem as awkward and out of place as having a lion in the living room.  With Mercury and Venus conjunct in Scorpio try to watch your mouth, especially with family, you’re tendency to be blunt now will not earn you any sugar, particularly if you insist on telling people stuff they simply don’t want to hear. Later in the week when Mercury moves into alignment with Pluto you will have your “I told you so moment,” just make sure you don’t actually say that but instead be ready with a solution that will make you seem like you’re psychic (but really you’re just prepared). Everyone will think you’re a genius and you might even end up being proud of yourself as well for not belaboring something that was ultimately inevitable (which you didn’t know then, but you know now).

 

Virgo- What you say now will likely not be nearly as effective as what you do, so plan your actions wisely. If something either at work or in the professional sphere is annoying you, act for the time being like it’s okay, then, when no is watching, start your investigation. Mercury hooking up with Venus will allow you to keep on the down low and appear to go with the flow, although when Mercury moves on to square Mars and align with Pluto you should have all the dirt you need to bust your move and strike like a ninja. Neptune in your House of Relationships will be in on this Mercury driven stuff as well, so make sure that you’re clear about who’s on your side and who isn’t, that way only the baddies will go down and there won’t be any collateral damage. Oh, one final word, you should be executing this mission because it’s the right thing to do, not because you want to get ahead….just sayin’.

 

Libra- There is a sense of mystery surrounding you now that could be used to your advantage, just make sure that you don’t get lost in what others ignorantly project on you. Your insights now are quite sharp and you are able to see through the illusions that most people think is reality. You have true talent, but with such abilities also comes great responsibility, keep that in mind and don’t try to pretend you’re something you’re not; what you are is more than enough. Your words carry a lot of weight now so choose them carefully and commit yourself to only promising what you can actually back up. Once again, what you’re bringing to the table is valuable and because it is you can keep things simple and still shine. Mars in your House of Creativity will be like having a reserve tank of gas, so don’t worry if you’re not the first one out of the gate, you will undoubtedly be a strong finisher.

 

Scorpio- With 3 Major planets now in your sign (Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter) and Mars at your Foundation squaring all of them, your world is rocking and rolling like a stormy sea, however, rather than worrying about getting drowned underneath all this momentum why don’t you instead consider surfing this tidal wave to tube city? Uranus retrograde in your House of Relationships has likely brought back some sort of craziness from your past, but with solid Saturn in Capricorn providing ballast and Pluto (your esoteric ruler) helping to transform your thinking, consider any past drama that is coming up now for revue as a rerun you’ve already seen so you know what’s going to happen. Just keep in mind you’re no longer the person you were back then, but an evolved and self- loving person who has worked hard to get there. Repeat after me, “My name is Gladiator……”

 

Sagittarius- You could possibly be somewhat of a Freudian cocktail now, as Mercury and Venus retrograde in your House of Hidden Things square Mars in your House of Communication. With the addition of restrictive Saturn in your House of Self Worth, try to be aware of any mounting frustrations so you can head them off at the pass, otherwise you may find yourself acting out at the expense of someone you would never think of hurting or, perhaps worse, someone you can’t afford to offend. As Mercury moves further into Scorpio and comes into alignment with Pluto, you will no doubt gain some insight into your recent behavior; let’s just hope you haven’t already forced someone to pass a harsh judgment because of your alter ego.

 

Capricorn- If you feel you’re ready to speak your truth then undoubtedly you’ll find an audience to appreciate it, right? Not necessarily…. At this time such a simple assumption may turn out to be trickier than you think, especially since Mercury and Venus in your House of Groups will be providing you with an edgy, and perhaps hard to understand charisma. This will be because they will both be squaring Mars in your House of Self Worth, which could end up sending some mixed messages as you find that people seem to be intimidated rather than drawn to you. Later in the week when Mercury aligns with Pluto in your sign and Neptune in your House of Communication, you’ll likely figure out what’s going on and make the necessary adjustments; such as less is more, and approachable, not necessarily approaching, is what folks like.

 

Aquarius- Two steps forward and one step back is what life probably feels like to you right now, especially with Saturn in your House of Confinement and Mars in your sign making it seem like you’re driving a car with the brake on. In addition, Uranus at the bottom of your chart is rocking the boat while Mercury squaring Mars is making you feel sea sick, ugh!!! But hang in there, as Mercury moves forward and comes into alignment with both Pluto and Neptune, you should be able to find something to calm you down and help you focus; “Om” or “Cheers”, whichever sounds like music to your ears. At that point, the Lunar Arc for the week will be finishing up in your House of Self Worth and you should be feeling mellow as jello and going with the flow.

 

Pisces- Insights should be coming to you this week like a straight no chaser shot of reality, beginning with the Moon in somber Capricorn embracing Saturn, which will be followed shortly thereafter by blunt Mercury in your House of Philosophy reading the riot act to volatile Mars as he tries to bums rush his way through any obstacles. It won’t be until later in the week when Mercury moves forward to align with Pluto and Neptune in your sign that the gift of insight will dawn on you and you realize the truth behind the old cornball cliché, “things happen for a reason”…….yup, the reason was because you didn’t know any better, but now you do. Namaste.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #56 Weekly Horoscopes for 10/8-10/14, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/8-10/14, 2018

 

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

Well, Bart O’Kavanaugh has been confirmed and I have a feeling all of his cronies who couldn’t recall anything are probably raising a glass now in their respective country clubs. On the other side, I salute all those who came forward (both men and women) to support the allegations of both Ms. Ford and Ms. Ramirez, too bad the FBI was told not to talk to you.

But most of all, as far as Mr. Saturn is concerned, Christine Blasey Ford is a true heroine who showed more Judicial temperament, more courage, and more leadership than whining Bart did.

So now all of you Ladies out there (as well as the men who love and respect you) know what you need to do in November. We can give ourselves a Holiday Gift of a Blue Congress so we can start to begin to fix this mess we’re in. Let Justice be done on the rebound.

 

 

 

Aries- The week will begin with a New Moon in your House of Relationships squaring Pluto in your House of Career, which could mean the time has come for you to re-evaluate your associations with certain colleagues. Venus retrograde in your House of Transformation squaring Mars in your House of Dreams will also involve your professional associations, particularly in regards to how some of your commitments may actually be holding you back from recognizing your full potential. As Mercury changes sign from Libra to Scorpio it will join Venus in your House of Transformation and subsequently oppose Uranus retrograde in your House of Self Worth, signaling that perhaps it’s time to not only talk the talk, but walk the walk in regards to what you can no longer live with if your dreams are ever going to come true.

 

Taurus- If you’ve been feeling like there aren’t enough hours in the day to find time for what’s important to you, then maybe it’s time to eliminate some of the stuff you just do without really thinking about it. The New Moon in your House of Routines will be squaring Pluto in your House of Philosophy, meaning that if your time is at a premium, then you should be reorganizing it based on your priorities and not anyone else’s. In support of this, Venus retrograde in your House of Relationships squaring Mars in your House of Career would further speak to all the creative energy you have pent up due to demands being made on you by individuals too lazy to do for themselves. As Mercury enters your House of Relationships and opposes Uranus, don’t be afraid to kick these freeloaders to the curb, you’ll be glad you did.

 

Gemini- The New Moon in your House of Creativity squaring Pluto in your House of Transformation this week will be about letting go of whatever you feel is weighing you down, whether that be a person, idea, or situation. Venus retrograde squaring Mars could find you wanting to either step away or completely revamp a situation at work, just make sure you’re not cutting off your nose to spite your face. Mercury entering into the secretive sign of Scorpio to oppose Uranus retrograde behind the scenes could see you having to scramble because of something you did in the past that is coming back to haunt you. If you can take the hit for this indiscretion then come clean and tell the truth. Continuing to lie may just make things worse and may even get too out of hand even for your prodigious talents at fabrication.

 

Cancer- The New Moon in your House of Foundations squaring Pluto in your House of Relationships could find you re-evaluating some friendships that may have run their course. You hate to let go of stuff, but this may just be a time when you have to let someone drift away into the void of their own ego. This may end up being a blessing in disguise as Venus retrograde in your House of Creativity rubs passionately against Mars in your House of Transformation and you suddenly discover that with one less person to worry about in your life you suddenly have more time to pursue something far more interesting, like whatever you damn well please. As Mercury enters into your House of Creativity and opposes Uranus in your House of Dreams, take a chance on trusting an inspiration, you may find you have what it takes to make yourself ecstatically happy!

 

Leo- If you’ve been working too much and neglecting someone special in your life then you better just stop that shit right now! Venus retrograde squaring Mars in your House of Relationships would indicate that being too tired after work is not going to fly for very much longer, so if you don’t want to end up sleeping alone then you’d better find that lost libido of yours. The New Moon in your House of Communication squaring Pluto would suggest that much of the mojo you invest in work is entirely misplaced, especially if half of it is spent complaining how much you’re suffering there. Why don’t you redirect some of your whining into a bouquet of flowers, a bottle of wine, or at least a willingness to pay attention to someone other than your disgruntled self? Maybe a little Whoopee will help to bust through whatever is damming you up and you’ll turn into the courageous adventurer we all know you are?

 

Virgo- The week will start with a New Moon in your House of Self Worth and it will be squaring Pluto in your House of Creativity, meaning that if you’ve been looking to break out of a rut then this is the time to do it! Venus retrograde in your House of Communication will be squaring Mars in your House of Routines, so why don’t you try a little experiment? Like stop doing shit you don’t like to do, especially if you’re just using it to distract yourself from what you really want to do (but may be too scared to try)? As Mercury enters the sign of Scorpio it will be aligning with Saturn in your House of Creativity, which will in turn be aligning with Uranus in your House of Philosophy; in other words, if not now, when in regards to your dreams? If not here, where? Think about it…..but not for long before you DO something….anything…..as long as it’s different than your same old, same old.

 

Libra- As the New Moon in your sign squares Pluto in your House of Foundations, you can rest assured some big changes are coming, you just won’t know what they are until they happen. Mars in your House of Creativity should mean you’re up for whatever comes along, while Venus retrograde in your House of Self Worth would indicate that what will see you through this time won’t necessarily be based on what you have, but rather who you are and the magickal power of what your essence will attract. Do you believe? As Mercury enters your House of Self Worth to oppose Uranus retrograde in your House of Transformation, stop trying to imagine what the bumps in the road may be and instead “Keep your eyes on the road and your hands upon the wheel……”Let it roll baby, roll….”

 

Scorpio- With Venus, Jupiter, and Mercury all in your sign now you should have the charm, insight, and eloquence to get whatever you want…..So, what do you want? The New Moon behind the scenes in Libra angling with Pluto in your House of Thinking would suggest that whatever you would hope to accomplish will likely have more to do with what you’re willing to let go of rather than worrying about what you can acquire. I know that sounds more Zen than you’d care to hear, but with the Lunar Arc this week progressing through the depths of your mind, whatever you would hope to find in the future will likely be more about how you can ask questions creatively (which is really voicing your intuitions) rather than remaining in the comfort zone of your current understandings and getting meaningless assurances of what you already know.

 

Sagittarius- The New Moon in your House of Groups angling against Pluto in your House of Self Worth will be requiring you to move past the judgments of others, especially if you’ve said or done something as of late that was a matter of conscience. Mars in your House of Communications squaring Venus behind the scenes would indicate that your words have had a great deal of power, just realize that telling the truth can make you just as many enemies as friends and there’s no accounting for taste. As Mercury, the planet of communication, moves behind the scenes in your chart, make sure to get back to a familiar routine in which you can relax and feel productive again; leave fixing the world to those who are arrogant enough to believe they can. You did your bit and you should be proud.

 

Capricorn- The New Moon will be in your House of Career to start the week and it will be squaring Pluto in your sign, meaning that you will likely be challenged to let go of something you might have once thought was important but right now may not be all that and a bag of chips. Mars in your House of Self Worth squaring Venus retrograde in your House of Dreams could either motivate you to try and hold on like a pit bull or else let go like a fist when you open your hand; it’s up to you so make sure you’re seeing the forest for the trees before allowing yourself to worry that all may be lost. As Mercury moves into your House of Dreams to square Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity, you may just discover that whatever has departed from your life may just turn out to be a blessing in disguise by providing a space for something better.

 

Aquarius- Mars in your sign squaring Venus retrograde in your House of Career may have you scrambling desperately to try and salvage what is seemingly a lost cause, especially since an unpredictable Uranus retrograde is lingering in your House of Foundations to oppose Mercury as it enters the revealing and often blunt sign of Scorpio. Something you had hoped would remain hidden is now going to be in the open for all to see. The New Moon in your House of Philosophy squaring Pluto behind the scenes will be trying to tell you that ambition has been your undoing in this matter, not some conspiracy on the part of those who have asked sensible questions that you simply felt above having to answer. Only the true king can pull the sword from the stone….Amen.

 

Pisces- Sometimes the journey to make a dream come true is meant to change us rather than our getting what we think we want. The New Moon in your House of Transformation squaring Pluto in your House of Dreams could perhaps be indicating that this is such a time or, on the other hand, any delays that are occurring now could be hinting that the time is not right yet for your ambitions to be fulfilled? Mars behind the scenes is probably making it hard for you to accept this, especially as it squares Venus retrograde in your House of Philosophy, which keeps your desire in front of you like a carrot baiting a donkey. As Mercury enters the secretive sign of Scorpio and your House of Philosophy, an important piece of information could be revealed in the near future that will either indicate you should remain patient, or else move on once and for all.

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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