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

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

 

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

Now for some Horoscopes!

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Special Uranus Entering Taurus Edition

 

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

-Rumi

 

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

 

An Overview of Uranus in Taurus

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

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

Uranus as an Archetype

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

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

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

How Will Uranus in Taurus Affect Each Sign in 2018?

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The first way is “me,”

The second, “you,” the third, “we,”

The fourth, “what to do?”

 

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

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

“Regret is fear of

What needs to be done next placed

In the wrong context”

 

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

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

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #19 Weekly Horoscopes for 1/15- 1/21, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 1/15 – 1/21, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Glad to have y’all back at Mr. Saturn’s Stars.

 

“Faith is self confidence when the self has been surrendered.”

-Aleister Crowley

 

Aries- With a new Moon in Capricorn pairing up with Venus in your House of Career and squaring Uranus transiting through your sign, you’re no doubt feeling impatient with others this week, however, be careful. No one wants to have anything Rammed down their throats, even if it is something they’ll eventually come to love and need. A little patience will be advantageous to your current ideas of manifest destiny, so take your lead from judicious Jupiter in Scorpio as he aligns nicely with Pluto, the Ruler of Hidden Wealth. Mr. Saturn is also in your House of Career and he and Mercury have concocted a very practical plan for you. The only rub is that Mercury has been dispatched to deliver this important news to you on a goat and even though these friendly yet stubborn creatures are quite hardy, they are not particularly fast with a payload. Later in the week when the Sun and Venus enter Aquarius you’ll likely be busy with a group or organization that just can’t do without you. Listen to Mr. Saturn when he says, “forget what you might not have yet, fabulous certainly counts for something.”

Taurus- You could be struggling this week with making a commitment to either a person or a situation as the New Moon in Capricorn joins up with Venus and squares Uranus. If you’re worried about how this choice may limit your sovereignty or personal freedom perhaps you should first ask yourself what those concepts actually mean to you? The people and circumstances in our lives are supposed to change us; it’s called “evolution.” Are you willing to let someone or something change you or do you think you can bend the universe to your ego (or fear)? Jupiter and Mars in your House of Relationships aligning with Pluto in your House of Philosophy are debating this issue, however, there will be no winner or loser in this discussion if you have confidence in yourself. Just accept that change is inevitable and if it is love that has come knocking on your door, well…Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you.

“If Love comes knocking

Let it in, you will always

Learn something useful”

Gemini- While the Sun, Moon, Venus, Pluto, Mercury, and Saturn are all in your House of Death, Resurrection, and Legacies this week, your commitments and responsibilities both at work and at home will be in need of immediate attention. Initially this will annoy you as Uranus in your House of Dreams will instead want to step out and play, however, duty will win out as Jupiter and Mars in your House of Routines align with Neptune to tug on your heartstrings and make sure you do the right thing. The only question that remains is have you been motivated to these tasks by love or guilt, or both? Reflecting on the answer to this may result in some disturbing moments as your dark side briefly rears its ugly head, but don’t worry, when the Sun and Venus cross over into Aquarius your secret will be safe and no one will suspect your behind the scenes meltdown. As Mr. Saturn will remind you, “no one wants to hear about the labor pains, they just want to see the baby.”

Cancer- A stellium of Capricorn Planets in your House of Relationships this week could cause you to feel overwhelmed with responsibility for those you care about. Jupiter and Mars in your House of Creativity will make it possible for you to draw on some very deep resources to take care of whatever dilemmas are facing you and yours, however, be careful that you don’t completely exhaust yourself in the process of trying to be “A Man (or Woman) For All Seasons.” With Uranus in harsh angle to all those aforementioned Capricorn planets there is also the distinct possibility that you could make the mistake of doing something for someone they should be doing for themselves. As a result, you could end up creating some unexpected (and unnecessary) problems for yourself. Because he hates saying “I told you so,” Mr. Saturn will instead comment to no one in particular (are you listening?) “No good deed goes unpunished…..” Nuff said!!!

Leo- The difference between fear and courage is mostly based on how you feel about yourself. The symbol for Leo is the Lion and, as a result, it is probably the sign of the zodiac most associated with courage. On the other hand Leo is a fixed sign so it can also be associated with inflexibility and dogma, which can sometimes lead to an unwillingness to upset the status quo for fear of losing one’s position. With a logjam of Capricorn planets in your House of Work being squared by Uranus, it is quite likely that you are currently being taken advantage of on the job and the time has come for you to stop being scared of what you might lose and instead speak up. Of course now we’re back to fear or courage being based on how you feel about yourself. Mr. Saturn would suggest you give a listen to the Tom Petty song that goes, “Well I know what’s right/ I got just one life/ In a world that keeps on pushin’ me around/ I’ll stand my ground/ And I won’t back down.”

Virgo- Rebellion is often the result of first having given your power away so that you can prove your worthiness by taking it back. This is a subtle psychological point that often goes unrecognized by all those angry young rebels out there who are projecting their fear and anger on the rest of the world in order to prove something. You need to realize you are no longer a boy or a girl and no one is forcing you to do anything. With 6 planets in Capricorn in your House of Creativity squaring Uranus in your House of Shared Resources, you have come to a threshold of understanding now and whether you do something or not should be based on what you want and not what someone else can manipulate you into. Make sure you are choosing your path based on love not on anger. Once you realize this it may be easier than expected to make a dream come true. As the song goes, “No one you can save that can’t be saved/ Nothing you can do, but you can learn how to be in time/ It’s easy/All you need is love…”

Libra- A traffic jam of planets in Capricorn and your House of Symbolic Foundations are all squaring individualistic Uranus and probably making you feel as if your whole world is shifting it’s axis and turning upside down. Jupiter and Mars in your House of Self Worth are offering some help, but because they’re in the sign of Scorpio now they could likely be an indication of inner attainment rather than outer manifestation, which is exactly what you need to realize right now even if that awareness is not currently making you feel any better. Because this is essentially a time of inner evolution it is important that you accept what’s happening and let it guide your decisions rather than clinging to an exterior comfort zone that’s no longer realistic. As another Libra once wrote in his book, “Psychedelic Prayers,”

“The seed of mystery

Lies in muddy water

 

How can we fathom the muddiness?

Water becomes clear through stillness

 

How can we become still?

By moving with the stream”

 

Scorpio- This is a time of attainment for you, yet because you’re a sign that’s ruled by the extremes of the eagle and the scorpion, which in turn represent both the Saint and the Sinner respectively, what you seek could very well be a spiritual accomplishment just as easily as it could be a material one. Either way though it’s going to be about “walking the walk” and not just “talking the talk,” meaning there are no shortcuts for what you want no matter how impatient your naturally intense nature may get. A crowd of planets in Capricorn and your House of Intellect are currently working with Jupiter and Mars in your sign, as well as Neptune in your House of Creativity, which would all indicate that your inherent wisdom will likely take the evolutionary steering wheel away from your naturally desirous temperament so that no matter what you end up with you will attain a true Mastery of yourself in the process. As the song goes, “Come all without, come all within/ You’ll not see nothing like the Mighty Quinn”

Sagittarius- The Second House is usually referred to as the “House of Earned Income,” though I prefer to call it the House of Self Worth because you usually won’t earn anymore than you feel you’re worth, a distinction that clearly puts the power of the house squarely in your hands. With a traffic jam of Capricorn Planets currently in your Second House the question you need to ask yourself is, do you feel you are getting what you’re worth from whoever is employing your services? Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio and your House of What’s Hidden are giving you everything from headaches to gas pains as they debate this matter with foggy, illusory Neptune down at the bottom of your chart. It won’t be until later in the week when the Sun, Venus, and the Moon all move into Aquarius and your House of Communication that you’ll finally be able to make out what Jupiter and Mars have been trying to tell you through the cloud of Neptune’s white noise. Hopefully at that point you’ll finally decide to start working with Uranus in your House of Creativity to begin actively seeking a situation worthy of your talents. Then you’ll be able to sing this Jackson Browne song to whoever’s been using you, “And then you’ll have to eat your lunch all by yourself/ Cause I’m already gone.”

Capricorn- The week will begin with 6 planets in your sign (including a New Moon) with all of them led by your ruler, Mr. Saturn. If that isn’t a mandate for some serious shit I don’t know what is. In addition, Jupiter and Mars will be supporting this goat-fest from your House of Groups, meaning it’s likely you’ll be a force to be reckoned with either at work or within whatever organizations you belong to or gatherings you attend. Uranus at the bottom of your chart could, in some instances, be a disruptive or rebellious influence, but with all that responsible Capricorn energy going on it’s more likely that the planet of freedom will give you a unique sense of purpose as you leap from one challenge to another like the mountain goat you are. When the Sun, Venus, and the Moon enter Aquarius later in the week they’ll be in your House of Self Worth, which should help you feel more connected to what’s going on around you and thereby more receptive than usual to the needs of others. Donate your time to someone in need, you’ll be glad you did.

Aquarius- There is so much you feel you want to do, but where to begin? Mr. Saturn and 5 other planets are behind the scenes in your chart like a board of directors trying to plot a course for your manifest destiny, meanwhile Uranus is kicking ass and taking the names of anyone who so much as breathes a word of disagreement or negativity anywhere near you. Ambition like this can sometimes have the negative effect of turning those who could help you into adversaries, however, it’s lucky for you that Venus and the Sun will be entering your sign later in the week to provide you with just the charm you’ll need to convince even the crustiest cynic to crack a smile and enjoy the show. Jupiter and Mars in your House of the Public would suggest you’ll acquire whatever it is you’re pursuing (after all, who could resist you?) just make sure you’re also taking the time to connect with your audience and not just looking at them as numbers to be tallied on that big scoreboard of your ego. As the song goes, “Mr. Big Stuff, who do you think you are?”

Pisces- With Neptune in your sign you most certainly have a vision of what you want for the future, but with 6 planets in Capricorn transiting through your House of Dreams what’s important now is that you start taking care of the nuts and bolts tasks necessary to turn these dreams into a reality. Uranus in your House of Self Worth will attempt to distract you from your appointed rounds, although try to realize that any feelings of rebellion you may have at this time are probably nothing more than veiled excuses that are masking a deep sense of insecurity and a lack of self confidence about what you’re capable of. Later in the week as Venus and the Sun enter your House of Secrets make sure you take the time for some healthy introspection. Share your feelings with a trusted family member or even a professional therapist. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable, it is actually a sign of strength. As the song goes,

“What would you think if I sang out of tune?

Would you stand up and walk out on me?

Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song

And I’ll try not to sing out of key”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #17 Weekly Horoscopes for 1/1-1/7, 2017

 

Weekly Horoscopes for 1/1 – 1/7, 2018

 

 Hi Kids!!! Happy New Year!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. Before starting the Weekly Horoscopes for 2018, I would first like to take a moment to recount a little story that happened to me at the end of last year during the week between Christmas and New Years.

After putting away a couple of courses at an all-you-can-eat buffet that I was attending with my wife and her family, I eventually decided to get myself some dessert. When I went over to the ice cream station I encountered a Little Old Man in a hoody and a baseball hat standing there with an empty bowl in his hands and a very confused look on his face. I waited behind him for a moment but when I realized he wasn’t on line and was just standing there I said, “Excuse me” and went around him. “There’s no scoopers,” he said, and upon surveying the situation I could see the Old Guy was right. I looked around to see if there was an employee nearby who could help us, but the ice cream counter was situated in a far corner of the restaurant and there was no one around. It was then I suddenly remembered my unused spoon back at the table so I went to get it. The Little Old Man was still standing there with his bowl when I returned and once again he announced, “There’s no scoopers.” While I used the spoon I brought back from the table to serve myself some ice cream, I casually remarked to the Old Fellow, “Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands.” When I was finished serving myself I said, “goodbye” to him, but all he did was continue to stand there in silence with his bowl and stare at the ice cream.

When I returned to the table and repeated this incident to my wife she replied, “Wow, that’s a wonderful metaphor of life, you should include it in Mr. Saturn. Needless to say I followed her advice, which makes the moral of this New Year’s story for me, “Listen to your wife.”

 

Aries- As the year begins, ambition will be your middle name with The Sun, Venus, and Pluto all moving together through your House of Career to align with Jupiter and Mars holding hands in your House of Death and Transformation. You are resourceful and persistent at this time and with a Super Full Moon in Cancer in your House of Foundations you will also be feeling an almost biological imperative to establish something new for yourself that will stand the test of time. On the second of January, Uranus will go station/direct in your sign, which should help you turn some of last years frustration into originality and a new sense of panache for 2018. Mr. Saturn would say, “You’re trending!”

Taurus- The Lunar Arc this week through the lowest part of your chart will activate some deep seeded feelings of longing that should inspire you to re-visit some dreams you have been procrastinating about for far too long. This could involve either establishing a new home base or beginning a new career direction as The Sun, Venus, and Pluto are all activating the part of you that wants to make your mark in the world by establishing something both progressive meaningful. With Mercury moving direct toward Uranus and a Super Full Moon in your House of Thinking it is also important that you are willing to bend or even break some rules now to get yourself out of the logical and comfortable rut you’re luxuriating in. Mr. Saturn say’s, “it’s not about what you can get away with, it’s about what you need to get away from.”

Gemini- The Super Full Moon that starts this week will be in the sign of Cancer and your House of Self Worth. This could be either a recipe for insecurity or a rallying cry for success as this Super Moon opposes The Sun, Venus, and Pluto in your House of Transformation and trines a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in Scorpio. Sometimes fear motivates people to do remarkable things and at other times it freezes them in their tracks. Usually it all boils down to what you feel you have to lose; and we’re not talking about your material status, we’re talking about you’re spiritual and emotional net worth if you are letting yourself be defined by the approval of others. Also be careful mid-week that you don’t bite off your nose to spite your face as a Leo Moon aligns with a stationing Uranus in Aries, a fire combo that can be about irrationality as much as rebelliousness.

Cancer- With a stellium of Planets (specifically The Sun, Venus, and Pluto) in your House of Relationships opposing the Super Full Moon in your sign, this is a week that will reveal both how much others will need from you as well as how new situations will offer some unexpected solutions to some old problems. Mercury in your House of Daily Routines approaching a station/direct Uranus in your House of Public Image should certainly bring some surprises, not the least of which will be the swiftness with which circumstances can change. A Jupiter/Mars conjunction in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune should also bring some surprises, specifically how fast your intuition works as it deftly parry’s and returns one blow after another as fate prepares you for the destiny you’ve always dreamed of.

Leo- With the Super Full Moon lighting your inner recesses like a roman candle and a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in your House of Symbolic Foundations rumbling like an earthquake, who (or what) is to blame if your soul is feeling unsettled and your life seems on shaky ground? The logjam of Capricorn Planets in your House of Work and routines would suggest you’d like to blame it on your boss or anyone else who is expecting anything from you, while Mercury moving quickly toward Uranus would suggest it’s probably anyone who’d remind you that the only one responsible for what happens in your life and how you feel is you. Neptune in your House of Transformation would further indicate that whichever answer you choose you’ll still feel miserable, so Mr. Saturn would suggest blaming yourself because at least that way you’d be in charge and that’s where you Leo folks always want to be.

Virgo- This is a week for doing, not talking. A Jupiter/Mars conjunction in Scorpio and your House of Communication working with The Sun, Venus, and Pluto in Capricorn and your House of Creativity (as well as Neptune in your House of Relationships) should collectively motivate you to talk softly but carry a big stick. The Super Full Moon in Cancer will probably make you more tolerant (and patient) than usual and Mercury in Sagittarius approaching Uranus should make you as sharp as a razor in order to slice through whatever bullsh*t may come your way while leaving a minimum of blood on the floor. The Lunar Arc this week will also aid you in realizing that you’re probably more in control of your life than you’ve ever been before. All Mr. Saturn has to say at this point is, “High five!”

Libra- This week a Super Full Moon in Cancer will form a Grand Trine with both a Mars/Jupiter conjunction in your House of Self Worth and Neptune in your House of Work and Daily Routines, which means you are probably feeling inspired to move forward with either your career in general or a creative project you have high hopes for. However, as the song goes, “Turn, turn, turn, there is a time for every purpose under heaven…” meaning that The Sun, Venus, and Pluto marching now through Capricorn and your Home sector may be requiring you to focus your energies elsewhere for the time being. Saturn is also there in your House of Home and that should help you to realize beyond the shadow of a doubt that whatever seems to be holding back the Dream Express for you at this time is an absolutely necessary delay, in fact it is an evolutionary precursor for whatever it is you are hoping to be. So, have a glass of wine with Mr. Saturn and sing along, “Time, time, time, is on my side, yes it is….”

Scorpio- You have so many good ideas now it’s like a convention of fireflies in a shady grove on a hot summer night. Don’t let inspiration pass without action at this time and be a dreamer with a house full of travel brochures who has never went anywhere. A Jupiter /Mars conjunction will be exact in your sign this week, which in turn forms a powerful Grand Trine with the Super Moon in your House of Ideas and Neptune in your House of Creativity. Make the time to play, create, or even howl at the moon if you’d like because if you’re feeling it in your heart then it is necessary to share it with someone. A stellium of planets in practical Capricorn will help you think all this through and make it real, just make sure you’re following your bliss.

Sagittarius- The Super Moon in Cancer that starts the week is in your House of Legacies, meaning either your Mama is leaving you a lot of dough or you’ve been sacrificing a lot of yourself and hoping there’s an afterlife to make up for it. The Sun, Venus, Pluto, and Mr. Saturn all in Capricorn and your House of Self Worth are combining with Neptune in your House of Family to set the bar of responsibility quite high for you, making you feel as if you’re pole vaulter in the Olympics hoping for a medal. Mercury coming into alignment with a soon to be direct Uranus in your House of Creativity should serve as an inspiration for you to break out of this approval rut and leave someone else to clean up after the users (and abusers) in your life, although it could also mean that you’ll pride yourself inordinately at being able to bend over backwards like a circus contortionist to impress these ignoramuses. In addition, Jupiter and Mars in your House of Confinement are like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid trying to bust out of jail, although any decent historian (or even Mr. Saturn) will tell you, “they were never in jail together.” Think on that one for a while.

Capricorn- The Relationship Axis in your chart is overloaded with The Sun, Venus, Pluto, and Saturn all in your sign opposing the Cancer Super Full Moon in your House of Partnerships. Are you sweet on anybody now?, Is anyone sweet on you? Have you even noticed? Jupiter in your House of Friends aligning with Neptune in your House of Communication could mean someone you think of as just a friend may secretly like you a whole lot more. Or perhaps someone has been sending you some pretty clear signals and you’re just oblivious? As Mercury in your House of Confinement moves into an eventual alignment with Uranus, you could finally come to realize all the defense mechanisms and walls you’ve set up around yourself under the guise of being “too busy” and “having no time” are just excuses for being too chicken to open your heart. “Awww,” say’s Mr. Saturn, “why I bet plenty of people would like to get to know a sweetie pie like you.” Nuff said!

Aquarius- The Sun, Venus, Pluto, and Saturn operating now behind the scenes in your chart all represent the weight of responsibility hanging heavily on your shoulders. At the same time Mercury moving through your House of Groups toward Uranus in your House of Communication is all about exploring every possible angle to create solutions. The Super Full Moon in Cancer this week has you worrying whether or not you’re up to these current challenges, however, Neptune in your House of Earned Income could very well save the day by providing you with an unusual opportunity to acquire some much needed cash. Likewise, Jupiter and Mars conjunct in your House of Career should give you all the drive and courage you should need to see you through these difficult times. It might seem like you’re at the Alamo, but as the song goes, “We are the champions, my friend, and we’ll keep on fighting to the end!”

Pisces- As long as Neptune remains in your sign the challenge will be to stay grounded, not only in regards to your long term goals but in terms of your day to day existence as well. The Sun, Venus, Pluto and Saturn in your House of Dreams will help to keep your nose to the grindstone and make sure things stay organized, while a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in Scorpio will motivate you to remain focused. Mercury in your House of Career moving into an eventual alignment with Uranus in your House of Earned Income later in the week could bring some unexpected or unusual ways to make a little extra cash, although getting back to Neptune for a moment, make sure you are saving something for a rainy day from anything extra that comes in and not just spending it all. As Jimi Hendrix used to sing, “Castles made of sand fall into the sea, eventually…”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #13 Weekly Horoscopes 12/4-12/10, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/4-12/10, 2017

 

 Hi kids!!! Here we are again for another round of Mr. Saturn’s Stars. I know it’s been tough lately but take heart, there are only 22 more days of Christmas music remaining and then we’re on to happier times! Hey! Perhaps there’ll be an Impeachment Celebration in the Spring if the groundhog sees his shadow? “Here Comes the Sun…and I say…. it’s all right…”

 

Aries- With the Sun, Venus, Saturn, and Mercury Retrograde all in your House of Travel it’s no wonder you’re feeling the itch to get away; but from what…Christmas Music? Boredom? Your self? Mars in your House of Relationships is ready, willing, and able to lead you to distraction, but is that other person you’re considering available? Are you available? Be careful. Jupiter in your House of Sex and Neptune behind the scenes could seduce you into leaving the back door open, but let the Lunar Arc show you the writing on the wall as it passes from Cancer to Leo to Virgo or longing to indulgence to regret…just sayin’. Of course with Venus pulling into a square with Neptune over the weekend you’re going to do the worst thing possible so make sure you have enough sick days saved at work….”Love, it’s a Bitch….all right….” sings Mr. Saturn along with Mr. Jagger.

Taurus- A bull can stand around for a long time doing nothing but then suddenly something sets it off and then you have a whirlwind of horns and fury. With the loose cannon twins Uranus and Mercury Retrograde currently doing their mischief in your deepest and darkest places be careful that you don’t take something the wrong way from someone who certainly isn’t innocent, but isn’t evil either. A little compassion and a little less judgment (mostly toward yourself) could go a long way here, after all, if Timothy Leary was right and the mind is God then what we blame the world for could very well just be our own projections and nothing more. Later in the week as Neptune is simultaneously squared by Venus and trine to Jupiter you’ll likely recognize the error of your ways and be ready to take a deep breath (along with a good stiff drink) and let Mr. Saturn queue up his playlist…beginning with ”Getting better all the time, better….better….bet-ter…”

Gemini- A stellium of planets in your House of Relationships has you hell bent on taking the high road with someone who has disappointed you; just make sure your feelings don’t get short changed in the process. Your idealism isn’t immature nor is it weakness or naivety, it is your essential character and sooner or later it will create for you the emotional satisfaction you deserve. Meanwhile on the job front you’re going to need to get tougher as well. The Lunar Arc for the week will have you trying to understand and be compassionate with a problem employee, but by the weekend you will finally realize that you’re doing this individual a disservice by not cracking the whip on their lazy ass. When Venus squares Neptune over the weekend be careful not to take too much of a swan dive into that wine glass. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

“Sometimes logic needs

A glass of wine to know how

Reality feels”

Cancer- Your sign is ruled by the Moon and the Lunar Arc for this week contains great wisdom if you can open your heart to the music of the spheres. Beginning with a personal New Moon in your sign and then progressing through Leo into Virgo, the Lunar theme for the next seven days is about nurturing, courage, and maintenance. The Universe is willing to help you if you believe you are deserving of it. A Jupiter/Neptune aspect will be about mystical insight and creative thinking, that is, if you can begin to understand how much you’ve actually changed as a result of some recent hardships and what new insights (and powers) you’ve gained. As Mercury Retrograde aspects both impatient Mars and volatile Uranus it will be the perfect time to re-examine your whole emotional process and consider how much more effective you’d be if you took the time to breathe before reacting. Repeat after Mr. Saturn, “Aum….. Aummm…”

Leo- The Moon symbolizes emotions and the Lunar Arc this week for the Sign of the Lion will be all about your vulnerability, strength, and healing. Early in the week the Moon in your House of Hidden Things will align with both Jupiter and Neptune to form a Grand Trine. This could turn out to be quite enlightening once you begin to realize how your sense of compassion for others is really your own need to be forgiven; but for what (and by whom)? Now that Mercury is Retrograde and connected with Saturn in your House of Creativity, you should have the necessary perspective to finally embrace that inner child you’ve been projecting onto others in order to try to heal yourself by proxy. Freudian fondue for sure, but hey, Mr. Saturn is offering you a nice baguette to dunk and a glass of Pinot Noir to go with it, so try and get through this the best you can.

Virgo- With 4 major planets in the sign of Sagittarius and your House of Home you will be looking to transform your residence into something you can share with others and even perhaps profit from. A Mars/Uranus opposition could bring on some unexpected surprises regarding investments and earnings, though this should be temporary and when Mr. Saturn arrives home in Capricorn near the end of the month he’ll likely co-sign the go ahead to keep everything steadily moving forward. The key now is to remain calm but determined in your communications with a partner, which you should be able to pull off as Jupiter moves into a magnanimous trine with Neptune. The Lunar Arc for you this week will see you as the caretaker, defender, and problem solver for a current dream that has become about more than just accomplishing something; it’s now about you being the type of dynamic and creative person you wouldn’t permit yourself to be back in the day.

Libra- Saturn and Pluto are both at the bottom of your chart right now so don’t think you’re going crazy if it seems like the ground is shaking underneath your feet. Mercury Retrograde, Mr. Saturn, and Uranus, should all act like first responders bringing some unexpected luck out of the past just in the nick of time. Let them get you under a solid doorpost where you’ll be safe. Furthermore, Jupiter in your House of Income is a protective influence, especially with Mars about to visit for a seven-week sleepover. Those two together are like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid so before too long your saddlebags should be filled with loot. The Lunar Arc this week will bring you back into the public eye where your reputation is still sound and you have not been forgotten. As the Moon finishes the week in Virgo make sure you take some time to rest (and raise a glass with Mr. Saturn) after the rollercoaster ride of this last month.

Scorpio- For approximately the last seven weeks Mars has been hidden in your closet and bouncing off the walls to get out. Anyone that was messing with you during that time is likely to get a rude awakening when the Planet of War puts on his gear in your sign and joins Jupiter for some dojo sparring. Neptune in your House of Play will make sure no one gets hurt, so don’t worry, you’re still a nice person (if you care…lol!!!). Mercury Retrograde and Mr. Saturn in your House of Earnings will both call on Uranus to come out and play, which could result in you getting a retroactive reward as a result of some fine work (or a good deed) done in the past. Be prepared to be the center of attention in mid-week when a Leo Moon transits your House of Career and Public Image. Look, Mr. Saturn is standing with the rest of the crowd and chanting….”Maximus, Maximus, Maximus!!!”

Sagittarius- With Mercury Retrograde in your sign things should be quite kooky until just about Christmas Day. Mr. Saturn would advise you to be careful at the office parties and keep your hands to yourself, especially with Jupiter in your House of Secrets and Mars arriving there by the weekend…just sayin’. Venus will also be moving into square with Neptune this week so even if you manage to avoid getting involved with a #metoo incident during a drunken party, you’ll still be on your family’s radar and if there is a user among them, watch out; again, just sayin’. The Lunar Arc this week could be a drag for you based on what’s been said so far about family, simply because it will traverse Cancer, Leo, and Virgo and cover your Houses of Shared Resources, Philosophy, and Public Image. In other words you’ll be expected to take care of people, you’ll feel guilty if you don’t, and then you’ll criticize yourself if anything goes wrong. I think you should ask Santa for something extravagant; what have you got to lose?

Capricorn- Mercury Retrograde in your House of Secrets will be about the things you won’t admit to yourself and how this stuff has managed to follow you over the years like a jury duty notice. The healthiest thing to do at this time would be to confront your insecurities, especially with Jupiter (and soon Mars) in your House of Hopes and Dreams aligning with compassionate Neptune. It’s time to forgive your inner child because now you’re a strong, self-actualized adult, right? With Saturn returning to your sign before Christmas and Pluto already there you can’t avoid interior renovations any longer if you have hopes of selling your symbolic house of self next year. The Lunar Arc would suggest that all the help you’ll need is there for you if you can stop trying to be objective about yourself and just be yourself. Mr. Saturn would simply say, “relax and let me fortify that eggnog, you’ll be fine.”

Aquarius- Mr. Saturn say’s, “Trying to tell a person something they’re not ready to accept is merely inviting a disagreement that can’t be settled.” With Jupiter in your House of Career (and Mars arriving there soon) plus Neptune in your House of Self Worth, no one is going to be able to tell you anything that will slow your roll. In addition, a stellium of planets in megalomaniacal Sagittarius (including Mercury Retrograde) combined with rebellious Uranus has you convinced you know everything and the rest of us just need to shut up and appreciate that. Okay. The Lunar Arc will initially make it seem as though everyone is agreeing with you, but when the Moon finishes the week in Virgo opposing Neptune and then squaring both Mercury Retrograde and Saturn you will no doubt be bewildered and wondering out loud, “Why didn’t anyone try to tell me I was on the wrong track?” Hmmmm…..

Pisces- Ruled by Neptune you could be both a brilliant and flakey sign at the same time as you alternately charm and exasperate those who are forced to deal with you. This week will see you true to form (or formlessness as the case may be) as Mercury Retrograde joins with Saturn in your House of Career and aligns with erratic Uranus in your House of Self Worth. The shortcuts you were convinced of last week will turn into the overtime you (or someone else) will spend this week fixing things up. Mars opposing Uranus at the beginning of the week and then joining Jupiter in Scorpio over the weekend will initially find you indignant at having to be responsible for anything you don’t think is important, followed by a total conviction that someone else should help you make sure everything is taken care of. See what I mean? Mr. Saturn say’s you make him think of the old Jimi Hendrix song, “Well now if 6 turned out to be 9, I don’t mind, I don’t mind…”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #11 Weekly Horoscopes for 11/20-11/26, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes for 11/20-11/26, 2017

 

Hi Kids!!! Great to see you back!!! The Holiday Season officially begins this week with the arrival of Thanksgiving on Thursday. In keeping with the spirit of the holiday, the photo for this week’s horoscopes is of a Turkey in a cemetery. Mr. Saturn (along with his good buddy Siddhartha) chose this particular photograph in order to make a point; namely, can we really enjoy our celebrations if we know they are based on the suffering of another living being?

It’s an annual tradition for the POTUS to pardon one Turkey every year at Thanksgiving as a sort of joke about the process of government, however, since our current government has pretty much been a non-stop joke I think anyone who’s truly concerned about saving even a single Turkey this year will have to start at home. So, with that in mind, Go Vegan and have a Happy Thanksgiving!

 

Aries- As the Sun exits Scorpio and enters Sagittarius, your optimism should come inching back like the first rays of sunshine that appear after a thundershower. With Mercury and Saturn also in Sagittarius and combining with Uranus, your previously forlorn inquiries of, “Why?” will no doubt be replaced by the rebellious mantra of “why not?” Add to this a transcendent aspect between Venus in Scorpio and Pluto in your House of Career and anything that was stalled or in limbo as of late should now be, “all systems go.” The arc of the Moon through your Public sphere and House of Dreams will reiterate this theme as Mr. Saturn does his best Jim Morrison imitation, “We want the world and we want it…..now?…..NOW!!!!!!!!!!”

Taurus- This could be a very enlightening week for you. Uranus in your House of the Subconscious has been like an itch you can’t scratch for some time, but now with Saturn and Mercury coming together in your House of Transformation you might finally be able to start redirecting some of that anxiety you’ve been experiencing into something much more constructive and creative. This transcendental energy will be significantly amped up by a Moon/ Pluto conjunction in your House of Philosophy as it works with Venus in the House of Death and resurrection, thereby allowing you to let go and move with flow. To quote one of Mr. Saturn’s favorite Philosopher’s, “If you don’t like what you’re doing, you can always pick up your needle and move to another groove.”

Gemini- The Lunar Arc this week will highlight how you are evolving in terms of your behavior in relationships. As the Moon begins in Sagittarius and then moves through Capricorn into Aquarius, your perspective will change quite dramatically from one of simply reacting to what another person does, to instead taking responsibility for your role in the overall situation. The final step will be when you realize that the baggage you bring into a relationship does not have to be the baggage you leave with. A harmonious interaction between Pluto and Venus will be instrumental in helping you resurrect a new sense of self-love, especially since someone you cared deeply about has failed to treat you with the respect you deserve. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you.

“No one has broken

My heart, but I’ve certainly

Dropped it a few times”

Cancer- With Venus and Jupiter moving through your House of Children, any issues that currently exist between you and your offspring could begin to change for the better. Pluto in your House of Relationships is suggesting that letting go may be the key to dealing with what is actually happening between you and this person. Try your best to curb any expectations you might have and let this individual learn a lesson on their own. Furthermore, make sure you’re not struggling to hold onto something that is destined to change. This is especially true when it comes to your own circumstances. Perhaps trusting yourself instead of worrying that you might screw up royally is the secret ingredient that will unlock you from past traumas and give you a much needed dose of hope. At this point Mr. Saturn would like to share a quote from Gurdjieff, “Two things have no limit: the stupidity of man and the mercy of God.”

Leo- Mercury and Mars could bring you a flash of inspiration to start the week but it won’t mean squat unless you follow it up with action. Mars will also square Pluto, which could mean that you’ll allow frustration to substitute as a form of action in order to hide your fear of failure; kind of like revving a car engine, sounds fast and everyone looks, but it’s going nowhere. You definitely need to lighten up a bit and to that end Pluto and Venus will try to get you to let your hair hang down and kick off your shoes (no, not in your living room). Crazy ol’ Uranus will also try everything in his power to get curmudgeonly old Mr. Saturn to relax curfew so that you and Mercury the Trickster can go “On the Road” like Sal Paradise and Dean Moriarity. All that’s left to say at this point is, “Don’t bogart that joint.”

Virgo- Mr. Saturn say’s, “Rebellion is often about giving away your power just so you can take it back,” which is the perfect way to believe you’re doing something when in fact you’re actually doing nothing other than passive-aggressively resisting what you think someone else wants you to do. The problem for you at this point is that this sort of negative reinforcement essentially leaves you with nothing but your own whining…ouch! You’re hurting now and you’re vulnerable, so let the person you’ve been dishonest with see that. Of course you realize that person you’ve been conning is looking back at you in the mirror? The Lunar Arc for you this week is about taking responsibility for that doppelganger you somehow think isn’t really you. Yet if that’s the case, then who the hell are you? That’s the most important thing you have to think about right now. Word!!!

Libra- With the Sun, Mercury, and Mr. Saturn all in your House of Communications this week, as well as Mars sitting right in the middle of your sign, it is absolutely important for you to get the message out that you’re ready and available for whatever is next on the career front. Venus and Jupiter in your House of Earnings along with Pluto at the bottom of your chart should provide a much needed upswing in finances, especially if some unexpected expenses have recently turned your pockets inside out. The Lunar Arc across the bottom of your chart at midweek will combine a pathologically responsible Capricorn Moon with Pluto, motivating you to persevere in doing what you feel is right, regardless. Mr. Saturn would agree, as well as suggest you consider the words of William Blake, “If the fool would persist in his folly he would become wise.”

Scorpio- At the beginning of the week you will feel compelled to treat yourself to a luxury you haven’t had in a while or maybe even a vacation. Venus and Jupiter in your sign working with Pluto and Neptune respectively would indicate there will be a strong romantic element behind this compulsion, either because of a new beau in your life or because your “Spidey-sense” is drawing you toward a potential affair with a mysterious stranger. Don’t hesitate to make these reservations for whatever you desire because during the Capricorn Moon midweek you could end up feeling guilty and reconsider the practicality of indulging yourself. By the time an Aquarius Moon arrives on the weekend you will be riding the wave again, so don’t be surprised when the bartender delivers you a drink at your favorite watering hole and then points to Mr. Saturn in his Ray-ban’s standing at the end of the bar.

Sagittarius- Ruled by Philosophical and Expansive Jupiter, Sagittarius is a sign of visions and ideas, yet with a pair of nuts and bolts planets like Mercury and Saturn now in your sign (along with Uranus in your House of Creativity and Mars in your House of Dreams) this is a time when you will not only be the “concept” person, but also the Technician, Draughtsman, and Auteur as well. Venus and Jupiter in your House of the Subconscious and Pluto in your House of Self Worth are not only furnishing you with inspiration, but more importantly these planets are also seeding a new appreciation of self that will be key to manifesting the next level of your evolution. As the Sun enters your sign midweek, prepare to start feeling like anything is possible if you set your mind to it, which is a far cry from former pity party’s when you were whining about how tired you felt and how hard everything was. As Mr. Saturn say’s,

“We feel entitled

To each moment but then let

Them collect like dust.”

Capricorn- In Alchemy a catalyst surrenders itself to the process. After a fire there is ash (and maybe a Phoenix rising) but no more fire. This is your time to burn; it ‘s not about what you’ll lose, but what you’ll become. With Mars in your House of Career, Pluto in your sign, and Venus and Jupiter in your House of Dreams, it’s time to give yourself over to your inspirations. As long as what you’re doing is a Labor of Love (and it should be with Jupiter moving into a trine this week with Neptune in your House of Communication) then sacrifice yourself like a candle does to both the flame and the darkness. The Moon conjunct Pluto in your sign midweek will be of paramount importance to any creative work you’re doing now because this aspect is all about letting go and we all know how hard it is for you to do that. Mr. Saturn would suggest that you let “The Medium be the Massage.”

Aquarius- An important question to be asking your self now is, why do I want to succeed so much at this point in my life? You’re certainly driven, but who (or what) is piloting the bus? Venus in your House of Public Image wants to be loved and Mars in your House of Philosophy is “The Seeker” looking high and low. Meanwhile, Mercury in the House of Groups is working the room, yet it’s Pluto connecting with all of them from your Subconscious that might suggest this could be something pathological. There are two types of control issues, needing to be the center of attention or needing to be alone and neither of them is ever really free from negotiating someone else’s approval. Hmmm… Maybe the ongoing trine between Saturn (authority) and Uranus (rebellion) is turning you into your parents…. As Mr. Saturn listens to all this he can’t help but think of a song lyric, “He took a face from the Ancient Gallery and he walked on down the hall…” The End.

Pisces- Venus and Jupiter in your House of Philosophy and Pluto in your House of Dreams are providing the rationale for your “Manifest Destiny”, yet it is Mars in your House of Legacies that’s going to make you wake up and smell the coffee. Mr. Saturn in your House of Public Image is determining your existence in the same way that Mr. Burns ultimately owned Homer Simpson’s life and all the screaming outrage from Uranus in your House of Self Worth won’t change that fact. Keeping that in mind, now let’s take another look at Pluto in your House of Dreams. Pluto rules transformation so perhaps everything you think you want is not so much about you getting it, but instead discovering something important about yourself by how you negotiate the obstacles that rise up to deny you. Mr. Saturn would say, “Knowledge like that is worth a million bucks!”
