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 #18 Weekly Horoscopes for 1/8 -1/14, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 1/8 – 1/14, 2018

 

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

 

“Within the province of the mind, what I believe to be true is true or becomes true, within the limits to be found experientially and experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended.”

– John C. Lilly M.D.

 

Aries- At the beginning of the week Venus transiting through your House of Career and Public Image will be like Liza Minnelli performing the song “New York, New York.” First she will flirt with a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in your House of Legacies, then she’ll partner up with Pluto and the Sun for a smashing crescendo that will likely light up your future in a way that you didn’t expect. Next Mercury will cross your mid-heaven and join Saturn in Capricorn, which should bring some important news. This message may not be fabulous but it will be important in terms of giving you some confirmations about your long-term visions that you’ve been keeping to yourself. The Lunar Arc for the week may re-introduce a partnership that has been drifting or perhaps bring in a new influence that will help you let go of a dream that has faded. In the words of Led Zep, “Ramble On.”

Taurus- How much are you willing to change your life for someone? With a Sun/Venus/Pluto conjunction aligning with a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in your House of Partnerships to start the week, someone is going to put you through some paces you never thought you’d go through. Could this be love, destiny, or perhaps even the emergence of your truly mystical higher self? Who knows? But you may just be willing to get on a plane, train, or even a spaceship for this journey to a far corner of the world (or your mind). Of course Mr. Saturn is laughing, but with you not at you. After all, he knows him some Taurus’s and he’s just as pleased as punch that you’re finally willing to lighten up and let go for once. “Like the song say’s, “Turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream….it is not dying….”

Gemini- With the Sun, Venus, and Pluto all conjunct in your House of Transformation the deeper mysteries of life, death, and the universe will hold a profound fascination for you at this time. Perhaps a life-changing event like a birth or the passing of someone has set off this contemplative mood? Nevertheless, with Jupiter and Mars conjunct in Scorpio and your House of Daily Routines you will be looking to bring more meaning into your life on a nuts and bolts level. The Lunar Arc this week will begin in your House of Creativity and end in your House of Partnerships. This could cause you to question the nature of a relationship and ultimately confront the other party on exactly where you are both headed as a couple. Unless this relationship can start yielding certain out comes, you have to start asking yourself, what is the point?

Cancer- You intuitively feel that you have recently embarked upon a very important period in your life, kind of like Hiawatha heading in his canoe toward the sunrise and the symbolic spirit world. With the Sun, Venus, and Pluto all in your House of Relationships, you are also well aware that the time has come to evaluate many of the people in your life and start to determine who can fit in the canoe with you and who can’t. Jupiter and Mars now in Scorpio and your House of Creativity are causing a deep tremor of creative inspiration to well up from the depths of your soul and you are clearly aware that you are awakening to a deeper and richer world of inspiration and meaning than you ever thought was possible. This transformation will be mixed with both pain and pleasure so it is imperative for you to commit to the urgings of your Higher Self and persevere! Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

“Destiny is the

Inheritance we get from

Fate after a choice”

Leo- This is a time when great responsibility is looming and it is important for you to take care of business. The tricky part is that you could very well shirk what is expected of you with some very reasonable excuses, yet you know what the truth is. As a result, this time is more a matter of personal honor rather than anyone demanding anything of you or trying to make you feel guilty. Do you have what it takes? The Sun, Venus, and Pluto all conjunct in your House of Daily Responsibilities is about walking the walk and not just talking the talk, while Jupiter and Mars conjunct in your House of Home and Family should be seen as a warning that what you neglect now will likely come back at some point in the future like a contract assassin you can’t escape. As Russell Crow told his troops in Gladiator, “What we do here echoes in eternity!”

Virgo- This is an interesting time for you Virgins, the world is your suitor and you can either play the situation like an actual virgin or like an experienced vixen, which will it be? The Sun, Venus, and Pluto in Capricorn and your House of Romance would suggest you act more like Scarlett O’Hara than Melanie Hamilton, while Jupiter and Mars in your House of Communication are telling you to quietly and confidently go out and get whatever it is you want. The Lunar Arc this week will further reiterate the theme of self worth and accomplishment as it begins in your House of Self Worth and ends in the House of Creativity. As Southside Johnny used to sing, “They say there’s a limit to endurance/I know that I haven’t reached mine/All I want is everything!”

Libra- One of the great illusions of the American Dream is that of rugged individualism, simply because very little of true and lasting value is ever accomplished in this life without “A Little Help From My Friends.” Of course those who would seek to divide us promote the myths of glorious loners and rebels, simply because if we can ever learn to trust each other and work together we might displace those very folks who are misleading us. This is a lesson you will learn in spades this week as The Sun, Pluto, and Venus in your House of Family and Foundations align with Jupiter and Mars in your House of Self Worth, making this is a time where you might be asked to sacrifice something for a greater good. Mr. Saturn suggests you consider those you love and need as well as those who love and need you and likely you’ll come to understand what true strength (and success) is really about.

Scorpio- In Zen the term “Satori” describes the epiphany of seeing one’s true nature. This moment of truth has come for you as the Sun, Venus, and Pluto in your House of Thinking align with Jupiter and Mars in your House of Self. It is not necessary that any bells or whistles go off when this enlightenment happens, in fact it might even come for you very undramatically in a quiet moment alone. The important thing is that you let this current of truth rise upwards from the core of your being. The Lunar Arc this week further indicates that this current will likely be stirred as a result of some confusion or disappointment that you’ll eventually realize was intended to break down your comfort zone so your true self would be forced to act. As this Arc culminates, the Moon will be in your House of Self Worth, meaning that you will finally come to the realization that to change the world you must first change the way you perceive it. As the song goes, “Can you picture what will be, so limitless and free, desperately in need of a stranger’s hand in a desperate land?”

Sagittarius- With the Moon starting the week in Libra and your House of Dreams, you might find yourself assessing your lot in life and questioning why can’t things be different? The Sun, Venus, and Pluto in your House of Self Worth are a powerful trio and together they are all about attainment and transformation, so the energy for change is there if you want it. Jupiter and Mars in your House of Secrets and the cathartic sign of Scorpio are symbolic of a deep inner drive to evolve, a process that you have been repressing for far too long. Neptune will continue to linger for a while in your House of Family and it is important for you to realize that this watery planet of inspirations and illusions is all about breaking through the veils that separate us from the truth of ourselves. To quote the words from a song by a fellow Sag, “Who scared you and why were you born?”

Capricorn- There comes a time in one’s life when you just feel beyond the shadow of a doubt that a certain thing will come to pass. This knowing is not a loud voice from within, but a quiet, penetrating one, like the vocals in the song “Riders on the Storm” by the doors. You may not even see immediate results for this feeling, yet some unexpected things will inevitably occur because you are being spoken to from a world where your dreams are already a reality. The Sun, Venus, and Pluto are all conjunct in your sign this week and as they align with Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio and your House of Dreams, consider this quote from Chuang Tzu, “Once upon a time I dreamt I was a butterfly….Soon I awakened, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.”

Aquarius- Though a palace may be beautiful and visible from afar, its foundations are invisible. Yet without its foundations, the palace cannot stand. Whatever successes you may have recently experienced with Jupiter and Mars conjunct in your House of Career, they are no indication of where you are going next if you do not have a firm footing at present with which to proceed. The Sun, Venus, and Pluto in your House of What is Hidden would speak to making sure your foundations for future endeavors are not only secure, but flexible enough to allow for further growth or even a change of direction. With this in mind, as Mercury enters Capricorn to join Mr. Saturn, it is important for you to try and be pragmatic in the hope that you will come to realize how taking one step backward can be quite helpful if it provides the momentum for taking two steps forward.

Pisces- “In Dreams Begin Responsibilities” is a short story by the late Delmore Schwartz whose title serendipitously speaks to a theme that should be of special interest to you this week. This is because the Sun, Venus, and Pluto (three transformative planets) conjunct in Capricorn (one very pragmatic sign) are all in your House of Dreams and angling in a positive way with Jupiter and Mars conjunct in Scorpio and your House of Philosophy. In layman’s terms this means that whatever you hope to gain in your climb to the proverbial mountaintop will be directly relative to the amount of discomfort you are willing to endure, especially in terms of all the unglamorous chores that exist behind the scenes on every path to success. Saturn and Mercury are also in your House of Hopes and Dreams and together they represent the unexpected benefits of insight and character that are possible when you’re willing to deal responsibly with those difficult or distasteful elements that are sometimes an unfortunate part of doing something we love. Mr. Saturn say’s, “If you are doing what you like then any difficulties that arise are valid.” Nuff said!

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 #16 Weekly Horoscopes for 12/25-12/31, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/25-12/31, 20017

 

Hi kids!!! This will be the last Mr. Saturn’s Stars for 2017, but don’t be sad. I wouldn’t be Mr. Saturn if I weren’t coming back to crack the whip on you through 2018 as well. So enjoy your holidays, reflect on where you’ve been and where you hope to go, and I’ll be here again soon enough to haunt you like death and taxes.

Aries- This has been a long and busy year for you, though strangely enough in this final week before the New Year you might find yourself surprisingly energized rather than exhausted. The Lunar Arc this week will begin in your sign and as it squares Venus conjunct Saturn on Christmas Day in your House of Career you will feel not only proud of what you’ve managed to accomplish in 2017, but more importantly you’ll be driven to move ahead with new plans for 2018 as soon as possible. With Jupiter and Mars coming into alignment with Pluto you might also start to notice more of a symbiosis with others than you have in the past. Neptune in your House of What is Hidden will lend a very Occult air to these new feelings of connection as you find yourself turning away from your usual misanthropic leanings and actually trusting others to do the right thing without an argument first! Mr. Saturn say’s, “Namaste!”

Taurus- A stellium of planets in your House of Long distance Travel combining with Neptune in your House of Friends and a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in your House of Relationships could see you either on the road for the Holidays to visit someone you’ve been missing, or else entertaining some local strays in your own cozy nest. A personal New Moon in the middle of the week should put you in a contemplative mood as you take stock of the changes you’ve made over the past year and what the future looks like from your new perspective. An unaspected Uranus in your House of Confinement still has you feeling an itch to do something different or be something more, although maybe that’s just about being okay with who you are at any given moment. As the late Dr. Timothy Leary once said, “You cannot use butterfly language to communicate with caterpillars.”

Gemini- A personal New Moon coinciding with the New Year will find you experiencing an epiphany of sorts as you realize even though there is no “I” in the word team, there is certainly a “Me” and that could be where your problems with relationships begin. The Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto currently in your House of Transformation and Shared Resources are all about making a serious long term commitment to a special someone. The alignment of these aforementioned planets with Jupiter, Mars, and Neptune would further indicate that any such commitment would have to begin by relinquishing some of your legendary control issues. It’s not enough to simply want to be different, the trick is to let your self be transformed by what challenges you and that must necessarily begin with trust. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

“When people say they

Want to change, it often means

They hope things will change”

Cancer- Right up until New Years Eve you’ll be burning the candle at both ends trying to keep up with a whirlwind of current challenges, as well as preparing for whatever may be looming on the horizon for 2018. After a relatively calm Christmas with Venus conjunct Saturn in your House of Partnerships, Uranus in your Public Sector and this week’s Lunar Arc should start things off with a bang. Not to fear though, with Jupiter and Mars conjunct in your House of Creativity working with The Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto in that same House of Partnerships that furnished you with a safe holiday, you and your significant other (as well as any other friends or family members who might get involved) should be more than a successful match for any emergencies that might come down the pike. Neptune in your House of Philosophy will also mean that your legendary intuition will be sharper than usual, so pay attention and have faith that you’ll know what to do as your comfort zone continues to morph into a new and more courageous version of you. Like the song goes, “You’ve got to pick up every stitch….”

Leo- You hate to say no to anyone, much less those you care about, but to keep your sanity this holiday week you’re going to have to disappoint someone; just make sure it’s not yourself. Mars and Jupiter in the sign of Scorpio and your House of Family could be about conflicts at home or with in-laws. The Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto in your House of Work will likely mean that somebody on the job is going to try to dump something on you that is not your responsibility. Whether it’s a family member or a co-worker, you’re going to have to stand up for yourself because no one else is really thinking about your needs. Like the Oracle told Neo in the Matrix, “On the one hand you’ll have Morpheus’s life and on the other hand you’ll have your own.” Mr. Saturn say’s, “You may not want to believe you’re the one until someone rudely tries to convince you they are.”

Virgo- Whenever you think about being responsible it’s usually in regard to someone else’s needs. In the past this way of thinking has often put you in a difficult position and you’ve sworn repeatedly to yourself to be tougher in the future so you won’t be taken advantage of. With 4 major planets now in the duty oriented sign of Capricorn (and ironically your House of Fun) the time has come for you to put your needs first and make sure you enjoy yourself. Noble Jupiter aligning with compassionate Neptune should help with this #mefirst movement you need to get going, while the Lunar Arc approaching Mercury should motivate you to oppose the expectations of a friend or partner who always assumes their way is automatically your way. Listen carefully to the words as Mr. Saturn sings one of his favorite Dylan songs, “Maggies Farm:”

“Well, I try my best

To be just like I am

But everybody wants you

To be just like them”

Libra- Yours is a sign of partnership and this week the themes of loyalty, cooperation, and, most importantly, love, will all be front and center. The Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto crowded into your House of Family and Foundations will bring you a quiet, yet inspirational Christmas at home, even if it’s just you and your partner. After that the Jupiter/Mars conjunction currently going on in your House of Self Worth will align with Neptune and inspire you to join hands and circle the wagons with your loved ones (even those you’re not especially thrilled with) to overcome any obstacle or challenge that may be looming on the horizon. As the 2017 calendar ends, a Mercury/Moon opposition could bring you the inspiration for a new direction in the coming year. Make sure you take notes and don’t let these thoughts pass. “This could be big,” say’s Mr. Saturn, as he pours you another glass of Pinot Noir waiting for the ball to drop……..

 Scorpio- As 2017 ends the only planet traveling above the horizon in your chart will be the Moon. All the other planets are passing beneath the horizon, which is traditionally thought to be symbolic of one’s private or inner self. Hence as the year concludes you should probably reflect on what 2017 has meant for you psychologically rather than what you have accomplished materially. In other words, no matter what you’ve managed to do or acquire, are you happy? Mars and Jupiter in your sign lining up with Neptune in your House of Fun would speak to inspiration, is that how you’re feeling? A stellium of planets in Capricorn would conversely speak to practicality and change, so what needs to be different for you to feel that inner fire? Resolve to trust yourself more in 2018 and then allow yourself to dream. Like the song say’s, “I tell you love, sister, it’s just a kiss away, it’s just a kiss away….”

Sagittarius- Mercury in your House of Communication is rapidly approaching an aspect to innovative Uranus in your House of Creativity that will be exact in the first week of 2018. Meanwhile, the Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto are all currently in your House of Self Worth so that the immediate question becomes, what practical steps need to be taken RIGHT NOW to set up all that impending Mercury/Uranus energy? In other words, what will it take for you to focus on what’s important rather than on Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio gossiping behind the scenes? No doubt you’re focused on what they’re saying as they shoot the shit with illusionary Neptune, but what has believing that dirty little secret called “I’m not good enough” gotten you in the past? Just before New Year’s a Gemini Moon will first square Neptune and then sextile Uranus, so pay attention to what you believe about yourself and what options that leaves you. Can you hear Mr. Saturn singing? “Oh mother, tell your children, not to do what I have done…. To spend your life in sin and misery in the House of the Rising Sun….”

Capricorn- Logic will always teach us something, especially when the world doesn’t conform to our expectations. Conversely, intuition and emotion together will always lie, but separately, never. Sorry for waxing philosophical, but this week could either be a logjam or a dam opening for you depending on what you believe. Four major planets in your sign aligning with Jupiter and Mars represents pragmatism central, while on New year’s Eve both Mercury and a Gemini Moon squaring Neptune will be visions of sugar plums dancing in your head. Which is the truth? Uranus all by itself in your House of Foundations is proverbial chaos, meaning you really never know what’s going to happen until it does. Now if I told you that you’re a genius you’d probably not agree, however (and here’s the rub) if I said you weren’t good enough to succeed you might consider it. Decide which you believe and then see where it brings you. That is the only logic Mr. Saturn thinks you’ll need for 2018.

Aquarius- Your mind is as ubiquitous as the wind. Your creativity is like the will of a tiger as it mesmerizes its prey. Your spirit is a majestic mountain that seems to touch the heavens. You are feeling invincible, yet all things must eventually pass and when these miraculous events you are experiencing finally fade, then who will you be? Another insufficient breeze on a sweltering day in the city? Another old and tired tiger in a zoo? Or perhaps another mountain reduced to a hill after it is divided in half by a highway? With The Sun, Saturn, Venus, Pluto, and pretty soon Mercury all in Capricorn and your House of Confinement, the writing is on the wall for something that can’t last forever to eventually change. This is not a doomsday prophecy or simple hatin’, it is merely a warning not to take yourself too seriously. There is a famous story about the Taoist Sage Chuang Tzu who couldn’t decide if he was a butterfly or a man. “I wonder if he was an Aquarius too?” asks Mr. Saturn.

Pisces- Is Reality subjective or objective? If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to see it did the tree really fall? The 20th Century Mystic Teacher Gurdjieef once said, “Man’s greatest weakness is his suggestibility.” With Jupiter and Mars arm in arm in your House of Philosophy and aligning with Neptune in your sign, the propensity now is to believe whatever you want and not doubt your ego until you’re smacked down. A stellium of Capricorn planets in your House of Dreams would suggest you err on the side of caution if possible, and if not, then make it possible because you don’t want some damn hypothetical tree flattening you in a world where bones break and people fail because they believe all kinds of stupid things. As the New Year arrives and sociable Mercury transits your House of Public Image, don’t take those back at home for granted. After all, they are the only ones you can really depend on to yell “Timber!!!”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #15 Weekly Horoscopes for 12/18-12/24, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/18 – 12/24, 2017

 

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

For any of you out there who aren’t feeling all this Christmas hype there is an alternative holiday one can celebrate at this time of year if you’re interested. December 17th – 23rd is the annual Feast of Saturnalia, an Ancient Roman holiday that honored the God Saturn (who, by the way, I’m officially related to according to Ancestry.com).

Unlike the crass commercialism and corny trappings of Christmas, Saturnalia featured all kinds of freaky stuff. There was role reversal and behavioral license, like Masters serving Slaves at the celebration banquet, Slaves being able to gamble with their Master’s or even disobey them without fearing punishment, and of course lots of Free Love. According to one source, “Rampant overeating and drunkenness became the rule and a sober person the exception.” My Great, great, great, great Granddad really knew how to throw a party, didn’t he? So, if you’d prefer to abandon social norms this holiday season instead of conforming as usual, then join the conga line to the Temple of Saturn nearest you and debauch de-year away!

 

Aries- With the New Moon, Venus, and Saturn in Sag to start the week and all of them aligning with Uranus in your sign, you will no doubt be feeling invincible, or at least fairly lucky if you can manage to do something like be on the platform at the same time as the train pulls into the station so you won’t be late for work on Monday morning. Enjoy these small victories while they last, because as the week drags on the Moon, Saturn, and then the Sun will all arrive in Capricorn, the sign of responsibility and achievement as well as your House of Career. Pluto is also in Capricorn now, so as the aforementioned planets join the archetype of death and transformation this is a time for you to re-examine your ambitions and direction. Make sure you haven’t become complacent in a situation that affords you comfort and perks but no longer really challenges you. Toward the end of the week when Mercury goes station/direct and briefly angles Neptune and Jupiter, take a moment to consider just how seriously you take yourself and where that falls between fabulous and not good enough as you stand at the velvet rope and wait for Mr. Saturn to let you in.

Taurus- Did you ever see the movie “Network” when the Newscaster played by Peter Finch tells people to stick their heads out the window and yell, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore!” Are you anywhere near a window? As the Moon, Saturn, and the Sun go into Capricorn and Jupiter and Mars continue their march through your House of Relationships, your grumpiness may be hard to conceal, especially since a volatile, retrograde Uranus has been chained to a radiator in your subconscious for quite awhile now and the neighbors are starting to suspect something. The Lunar Arc this week will highlight the process of how you negotiate your needs in any given situation, which brings us back to the screaming out the window thing; does it need to get to that? As Mercury goes station/direct and nudges Neptune and Jupiter, stop trying to act so nice and instead start being nice to yourself, whatever that may mean and whoever may need to pay for it. “Word!” say’s Mr. Saturn.

Gemini- “Therefore send not to know For whom the bell tolls, It tolls for thee.” The new Moon at the beginning of the week in your House of Relationships will be ringing in the next phase of a romantic partnership, namely commitment and responsibility. The Moon, Saturn, and the Sun will all be entering Capricorn this week and transiting through your House of Shared Resources, so maybe the time has come to make a home with that special someone? Mars and Jupiter in your House of Work slowly aligning with Neptune in your Career area might require you to manage your time between a job that pays the bills and a career that satisfies your soul. You may be frustrated at having to compromise your time, but just like the old chain gangs, Mr. Saturn would suggest you sing some blues to get you through. ”Girl we gotta get out of this place, if it’s the last thing we ever do, we gotta get out of this place, Girl there’s a better life for me and you.”

Cancer- Not that long ago you were complaining that nothing was ever going to change. Well, the time has come to quote a famous Lady who once advised in a classic film, “Buckle your seatbelts it’s going to be a bumpy night.” With the Moon, Saturn, and the Sun joining transformational Pluto in your opposite sign of Capricorn and aligning with Neptune in your House of Travels and Mars and Jupiter in your Creative area, get ready for circumstances to sweep you away into a new phase of your life. Not quite as epic as “Doctor Zhivago,” but what awaits might reveal a destiny you never suspected. Of course you’ll fret about it every step of the way because that’s what you Crabs do, yet once Mercury goes station/direct late in the week and starts to chug ahead toward Uranus don’t be surprised if these unfolding circumstances activate your higher Cancer nature and you come to a stunning realization. Home is wherever the heart is. “Duh-uh,” says Mr. Saturn before he recites your haiku.

“Faith is a haunted

House where we all search in the

Dark with a candle”

Leo- Mr. Saturn and the Sun will move into the sign of Capricorn this week to join Pluto in your House of Health. So how are you feeling? If there is anything your body is trying to tell you make sure you’re listening, because if you don’t Mr. Saturn can be part Nurse and part Sumo Wrestler if necessary to make you a willing patient. Mercury will go station/direct just before the Holiday and square Neptune, so make sure you fulfill your obligations to family. Try to be kind and put up with whatever you have to so that an older person can feel appreciated. They may not be so fabulous now, but they loved you way back when you weren’t so fabulous either. A Pisces Moon on Christmas Eve aligning with Jupiter and Mars may help you to finally see someone for who they truly are instead of who you’d like them to be. Everyone else already knows about this person so let Mr. Saturn get you another glass of wine to help lubricate your naivety through this unbelievable realization.

Virgo- Like Dorothy and her friends being nervous about meeting the Wizard of Oz, the arrival of Saturn into Capricorn and your House of Creativity may have you feeling a little edgy about how a project you’re involved with is going to turn out? Pluto, the planetary archetype of transformation, has already been in this area of your chart for a while, so if you’ve been reading the writing on the wall regarding change then Mr. Saturn will likely be about your dreams coming to fruition, albeit slowly. Just two days after Mr. Saturn arrives in his home sign the Sun will also enter Capricorn, which could help move matters along a little quicker, especially next week when Venus joins the party. Mars and Jupiter in your House of Communication will use Neptune to help spread the word, so if you’re not a success by New Years, don’t fret. Mr. Saturn says you will be the baby wearing the 2018 banner.

Libra- This might sound ominous, but your life is about to change significantly in the coming months, so get ready. The herald of this change will begin this week with none other than Mr. Saturn (Ta-da!!!) entering his home sign of Capricorn and your House of Foundations. Pluto has been there for the last few years setting the stage for this and as Jupiter and Mars in your earnings area and Neptune in the work sphere all move into alignment, the stage is being set for a Quantum Leap regarding how you’re accustomed to thinking about yourself and acting. There’s no way to prepare for this other than to try and be like the surfer who sees the ultimate wave starting to form; put your head down, paddle your ass off, and hope for the best. “Day destroys the night, Night divides the day, try to run, try to hide, Break on through to the Other Side!”

Scorpio- Jupiter and Mars together in your sign now are providing you with a lot of energy. When Saturn and the Sun move into Capricorn during the week and enter your House of Communication, all that energy should finally be finding its focus so that you will be able to advance to the next level in whatever facet of your life you’d like to see improve. Venus in your House of Earnings aligning with Uranus in your House of Work should bring you some tangible dollars and cents recognition in the workplace, either from your current boss or someone else who would like to snatch you away. You will be feeling better than you have in a while, although as Mercury station/direct squares Neptune in your House of Romance, don’t let your good vibe be taken advantage of by a potential suitor who may be offering promises and not much more. As Grace Slick once sang, don’t end up being “A woman with her Greasy Heart Automatic Man.”

Sagittarius- Okay my Centaur friend, what do you want and how much are you willing to do to get it? Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio have been causing you to grind your gears behind the scenes, but now with both Saturn and the Sun moving into Capricorn and your House of Self Worth the time has come to either put up or shut up in terms of what you think you’re capable of. Venus in your sign lining up with Uranus in your House of Fun is making you quite affable, although make sure you’re not putting yourself at a disadvantage by good naturedly agreeing to someone else’s version of you. A Mercury station/retrograde in your sign angling with Neptune will be the last writing on the wall warning you about a manipulative situation at home. After that, Mr. Saturn will have no choice except to serve you with a subpoena to appear before the Court of Common Sense on charges of Felony Gullibility…just sayin’.

Capricorn- Mr. Saturn is coming home to your sign! Are you ready? I’m sorry, that’s a dumb question, of course you’re not ready for Mr. Saturn to be back, who would be? I mean this is Mr. Saturn we’re talking about. Although with the holidays so close maybe he’ll be in a party mood for the remainder of 2017? After all, the only major planet Mr. Saturn will be hanging out with for the rest of this year will be when he shacks up with Venus on Christmas Day (Ooh la la). However, make no mistake about it, he is back and will be making sure that shit gets done. The best way to keep him off your ass would be to enlist the services of Mars and Jupiter in your House of Groups and Neptune in your House of Communication, as they are all in compatible signs and Mars and Jupiter are the kind of hardnosed pros Mr. Saturn appreciates. As a Capricorn you’re a chip off the same old block as Mr. Saturn, so just stay on course for what you’ve been intending over the last few months and enjoy a little Venus yourself over the holiday. Merry Xmas!!!

Aquarius- As Saturn and the Sun enter the hidden part of your chart you could begin to get an inkling of just how much you are driven by the paradox of wanting more because you feel like less. You won’t dwell on this very much, mainly because with Venus in your House of Groups and Uranus in your area of Communications you will be too busy working the room (or the internet) to satisfy the center of attention jones you have going on with Mars and Jupiter in your House of Career and Public Image. Eventually though the curtain will close, the show will end, and there you’ll be, not knowing what to do with yourself without the smell of the greasepaint and the roar of the crowd to give you purpose. This brief moment of alienation will come courtesy of a Mercury station squaring Neptune, although the greater ramifications of this are far too mysterious for you to seriously consider at this time. Just recall what the Oracle told Neo in the Matrix, “you’ll remember you don’t believe in any of this fate crap. You’re in control of your own life…here take a cookie, by the time you’re done eating it you’ll be right as rain.” In other words, don’t worry about it now. Mr. Saturn will be hanging out in your shadows for a while until you’re ready to deal.

Pisces- This week Mr. Saturn will enter your House of Dreams. “What does that mean?” you ask. Imagine being given a charge card with a high credit line and then indulging yourself like a Sultan and maxing it out buying everything you’ve always wanted. When that first bill eventually arrives with interest added on, well, that’s classic Mr. Saturn requiring you to be responsible for your dreams. Now do you understand? Neptune in your sign has set you up for this and Jupiter in your House of Philosophy has fostered the illusion that you’re invincible. The more mundane fact however is that you’re going to have to start being more responsible for a lot of stuff that you don’t want to make time for. Of course you’ll try to charm your way out of growing up, but that will only last as long as it takes Venus to trine Uranus, which will be over by next week. In the meantime what’s that song Mr. Saturn is singing?….”It’s my life and I’ll do what I want/ It’s my mind and I’ll think what I want….” Uh-huh.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #14 Weekly Horoscopes 12/11-12/17, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/11-12/17, 2017

 

Hi kids!!! Mr. Saturn here. Glad to have you back! Like many of you, for better or worse I will soon be heading home for the holidays, which for me is my native sign of Capricorn; A mountaintop, a bunch of freakish half-goat, half-fish relatives to deal with… All I can say about that is…Fa la la la la…..la..la ……la…….la………..ugh.

Aries- The week will begin in a vacuum with a Libra Moon un-aspected in your House of Relationships, meaning you’re either depressed that you don’t have a relationship or else you don’t know what to do about the one you’ve got. Either way a Scorpio Moon conjunct Mars mid-week in your House of Transformation will find you feeling alone and/or alienated enough to do something you’ might regret… but don’t!!! Mercury Retrograde meeting up with Venus in Sag could bring an old friend to the rescue. You’re feeling crazy so let off some steam with someone who knows how weird being you can get.Mr. Saturn would suggest perhaps some karaoke to welcome the New Moon? “Twenty, twenty, twenty-four hours ago…..I wanna be sedated…..nuthin to do nowhere to go-oh…..I wanna be sedated.”

Taurus- This week could be a real slow burn for you. A Libra Moon with nowhere to go except where everyone else seems to want it could see you compromising yourself into utter frustration either on the job or at home. By the time the Moon gets into Scorpio mid-week and gossips with both Mars and Jupiter, you’ll be roundly chastising yourself. “How could you let them do that to you?” you’ll say to yourself, or else to your poor pet that just wants to lie next to you in peace. Uranus in your House of Secrets will make you fantasize about all the murder and mayhem you could enact upon these people in vengeance, however, by the time Mercury Retrograde and Venus meet up in bubbly Sagittarius over the weekend you’ll be ready to forget all that and go back to saying, “Namaste” to everyone. Mr. Saturn already knows what he’ll get you for Christmas….a big bottle of booze.

Gemini- With the Moon starting the week in your House of Fun (and the sign of Libra) you’ll probably feel compelled to be a man or woman for all seasons for both family and friends, but is that what you really want to do? With 5 major planets in your House of Relationships (including Mercury Retrograde) and all of them in dippy Sagittarius to boot, be careful you don’t forget how certain individuals have already shown you they are not as nice as they pretend. When the Moon enters Scorpio in your House of Routines and joins with Mars and Jupiter to aspect Pluto in your House of Death and Transformation, seize your power with these users and wield it as decisively as if you were a self-absorbed two year old….”nonononono!!!!!!” “That’ll show ‘em,” say’s Mr. Saturn.

Cancer- Having a directionless Libra Moon in your House of Foundations to start the week is making you feel so conflicted between your desires and responsibilities that if you agreed to a session with a shrink you’d probably be diagnosed as a schizophrenic. There are 5 major planets transiting through your House of Work and with all of them watching a rebellious, iconoclastic Uranus in your House of Career acting like Bart Simpson and giving them all the finger, you keep asking yourself just how much more of this you can take? When the Moon enters your House of Children to join both Mars and Jupiter as they all trine Neptune in your House of Philosophy, you’ll eventually remember who you’ve been sacrificing for all this time. Make sure you also remember that nothing in life lasts forever. As he pours you a nice glass of wine, Mr. Saturn will add, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you’ll get what you need…..oh yeah..”

Leo- You will be torn this week between freedom and responsibility. With 5 planets transiting through Sagittarius and your House of Creativity and all of them lining up with innovative, individualistic Uranus in your House of Philosophy, you’ll be wanting to write your own ticket and make up your own rules. However, Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius may be singing behind the scenes to those other Sag Planets, “Turn, turn, turn, there is a time for every purpose under heaven.” The Moon, Mars, and Jupiter in Scorpio in your House of Home will likely agree, as they demand your attention instead be focused on an intervention for a lonely friend or family member who really just needs to know someone cares.

Virgo- Imagine two soldiers standing guard on the wall of a fort. One say’s, “It’s quiet,” and the other replies, “Yeah, too quiet.” Just then an Indian’s arrow hits one of them and the air is filled with screaming war cries. A series of petty emergencies may surprise you this week, but if you and your partner pull together and delegate things properly everything should work out. All of the focus for the rest of this year will probably be at home as you have 5 major planets (including Mercury Retrograde) transiting that area. They are all in aspect to Uranus in your House of Transformation, so if you can go with the flow you just might experience some pleasant surprises. If romance has been lacking as of late between you and yours, let Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio help you get the passion back. Mr. Saturn say’s, “Rrrrrrrrrrrr…….”

Libra- Having 5 major planets in your House of Communications (including Mercury Retrograde) would make this an excellent time for you to reach out, especially to a person or professional group you may have fallen out of touch with. Because Uranus is also involved, you could end up receiving an unexpected blast from the past from either an old flame or someone who has popped into your mind again recently. With Mercury and Uranus together, there’s never any telling where these surprises may lead! Mars, the Moon, and Jupiter in your House of Earnings in aspect to Neptune in your House of Work could bring an unexpected opportunity for either some quick dough or a position that could showcase a unique talent you have. Maybe Santa actually did get your letter this year?

Scorpio- With a stellium of planets in your House of Earnings and Uranus in your House of Work, the Holidays for you are going to be busy busy busy. You may end up being exhausted but you should manage to rake in enough dough to make it well worthwhile. It won’t be all work and no play though because you also have Mars, Jupiter, and the Moon in your sign this week and they are all aligning beneficially with Neptune in your House of Romance and Fun. Even if you’re feeling frazzled take the time to attend a party and hit the egg nog. You never know, that overgrown elf lurking under the mistletoe and throwing back the brewski’s may just turn out to be your very own special Secret Santa (or secret Saturn if you’ve been REALLY good this year…..just sayin’).

Sagittarius- Having the Sun, Mercury Retrograde, Venus, Saturn, and the New Moon all in your sign aligning with Uranus in your House of Fun would indicate that the party this week is in Sag!!! With the Moon in Libra to start the week you will probably be feeling magnanimous and accommodating, however, once the Moon shifts into Scorpio and meets with Jupiter and Mars behind the scenes you might want to rethink your nice guy approach in lieu of certain individuals (okay, let’s be specific, certain family members) who might take advantage of your good nature. The Lunar Arc will finish in your sign over the weekend with a New Moon conjunct Saturn and trine Uranus, meaning that instead of letting the same jerks who have ruined your holiday in the past do it again, this time take the high ground. Mr. Saturn would suggest, “Bless the beasts and the children.” In other words, be nice to kids and pets and then either ignore your stupid relatives or find a comfy, out of the way spot to drink by yourself.

Capricorn- You’re like a floating iceberg this week in that most of what you’re thinking and feeling is concealed below the surface. This is because a stellium of planets in Sagittarius (including Mercury Retrograde) are all hiding behind the scenes and aligning with Uranus at the bottom of your chart. A kind and compassionate Jupiter/Neptune configuration between your Houses of Friends and Communication could help you avoid depression if you’re willing to seek out a friend or family member with whom you can vent a little to relieve the pressure. After all, the holidays can be frustrating if you let yourself get cornered into believing that everybody except you is happy with all this phony commercialism and advertised joy. On a more upbeat note amidst all this Christmas nonsense, Mr. Saturn will be coming to visit your sign just before Christmas Eve! Yay humbug!!!

Aquarius- Right now there are 5 major planets in your House of Dreams and they are all aligning with Uranus in your House of Communication. As a result, the illusion of choice for you now is popularity. The Lunar Arc will travel this week from Libra through Scorpio to Sagittarius or from establishing relationships to manipulating these relationships for fame and gain. “That sounds great,” you say, which may actually be the problem. Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio transiting through your House of Career and Public Image would indicate that no matter how broad your smile and no matter what promises you are making to all the people you’re asking for help, the simple fact is this is all about you. Pluto camped out behind the scenes would indicate a need to transform the notions you have about love change from adoration to humility, but then again you’d have to be able to be by yourself to deal with that, which is the scariest place in the world for you right now. The New Moon in Sag shacking up with Mr. Saturn will likely arrange for you to have your illusions for a while longer, so enjoy it while you can. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is yours:

To think your ego

Is what will conquer this life

Defines Black Magick

Pisces- A traffic jam of planets in your House of Career (including a very dissident Mercury Retrograde) are all causing you to have illusions of practicality about your former ambitious illusions. Now what could that possibly mean? Well, maybe the river you initially chose to cross wasn’t really the right one for you (which of course you wouldn’t hear at the time)? Nevertheless, changing horses now when you’re 3/4 of the way across is ridiculous, especially since you’re so close to finishing and learning whatever it is you’re supposed to. Now do you understand? Probably not, mostly due to the fact that transiting Mars in Scorpio aligning with Neptune in your sign at this time is giving you a real passion for not having a clue and being defensive about it. You think choice and responsibility are mutually exclusive just because they’re two different words, well, not to whoever is sponsoring this adventure you’ve been having….have you thought of that? When the New Moon tattles to Mr. Saturn on Sunday he may just make you aware of it.

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 #12 Weekly Horoscopes for 11/27-12/3, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes 11/27- 12/3, 2017

 

Hi kids!!! It’s terrific to have you back at Mr. Saturn’s Stars!!! The Holidays are officially under way, but before we begin with this week’s horoscopes I would like to share some things that have been on my mind.

First, has anyone ever noticed that the letters in Santa can be rearranged to spell Satan? What’s that about? Furthermore, Santa is this old man who traditionally encourages little children to sit on his lap. You think all this #metoo stuff is going to catch up with Kris Kringle the way it has with seemingly every other older white guy in power? I mean he’s already been caught kissing Momma underneath the mistletoe more than once. I would also bet that no matter what he does or how many accusers come forward, there will still be people who’ll leave cookies and milk out for him on Christmas Eve. What a world, huh?

I got nothin…

 

Aries- The angst you’ve been feeling lately is going to make it very difficult to control yourself this week as volatile Mars in your House of Relationships moves closer to a frustrating opposition with erratic Uranus. Mr. Saturn and Mercury will try to talk some sense into you, although what they’ll have to say may be more about what you’re secretly afraid of rather than the kind of pep talk you’d prefer to hear. The Sun in Sagittarius moving into a square with Neptune won’t help matters much, especially over the weekend when they both form a hallucinatory T-square with the Full Moon in Gemini. Let the illusions begin! Jupiter in trine with Neptune will try to introduce some compassion into this never-ending therapy session, so try having a little forgiveness for your self. As Mr. Saturn would say,

How much of our fear

Is simply the learning curve

For finding our strength?

Taurus- As the Moon passes through your sign this week stability will be at the forefront of your concerns. Letting go of unreasonable fears associated with being unstable will also be a challenge as Mars and Uranus move closer to a very testy opposition in your Houses of Hidden Feelings and Daily Routines. Saturn conjunct with a Mercury Station/Retrograde should give you fresh eyes with which to look at an old problem that could appear over the weekend as a Sagittarius Sun opposes a Full Moon in Gemini and both of them square Neptune in your House of Dreams. A Jupiter/Neptune aspect in psychic Scorpio and sensitive Pisces respectively could help you finally understand that what you’re currently faced with is not an old problem haunting you, but rather a new you trying to break free of old misconceptions. Mr. Saturn’s advice?… Breathe.

Gemini- Mr. Saturn conjunct with a Mercury Station/Retrograde in your House of Relationships along with erratic Uranus opposing Mars could have you jumping to all sorts of conclusions about how you’ll never find the right person to have a storybook relationship with. The worst case scenario here is that the Gemini Full Moon squaring Neptune over the weekend will find you laying at the bottom of yourself like a forgotten prisoner in a Third World jail. Of course this isn’t true, but the only way you’ll get to that light at the end of the tunnel is to embrace life rather than withdraw from it. A Jupiter/Neptune trine will be there to help with your healing if you’re willing, so, as Mr. Saturn bangs some hopeful chords on the piano the song he’s singing is for you…”When you’re alone and life is making you lonely you can always go…Downtown!”

Cancer- The world under your feet is shifting like the undertow at the beach, yet remember you are a crab and your nature has always been able to survive in the turbulent surf. As a crustacean you can seem tough on the outside but you are really soft on the inside, so make sure you are taking care of yourself emotionally during this very challenging time. Or I should say let someone else take care of you for once. A loving and sensitive Jupiter/Neptune trine would suggest that you are on the verge of a new sense of purpose in life, although don’t think you will discover this inspiration by digging for it. Let it come to you like the waves that always find the shore. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you….<3

“If I seek knowledge

Perhaps it’s there, if it finds

Me the truth is here

Leo- The pressure for you this week will be between what needs to be done as opposed to what you’d like to do. With the Sun, Mercury, and Mr. Saturn all in your House of Creativity and Uranus in your House of Philosophy, you’re brimming with great ideas and have lots of energy to express your self. However, with the coming Full Moon in Gemini ready to square Neptune and oppose the Sun, as well Mercury about to go Station/Retrograde, you may just feel a need to defer your desires and put someone else first. Just make sure this someone is worthy of your sacrifice. Your natural leadership skills and compassion make you an easy mark for manipulators who like to play the victim and there’s someone like that in your life now. Mr. Saturn would suggest, “Take this time to look deep within yourself to decide what you really want, although make sure you don’t wind up sticking your head up your ass in the process.”

Virgo- With Mr. Saturn and Mercury going through your House of Foundations you have been in the midst of reconstructing your life for a while now. Mars opposing Uranus in your money houses (specifically earnings and shared resources respectively) are making you anxious regarding the investments you’ve made as of late in both time and money. Realize though that the transformation you’re hoping for may not be able to fully come about until you’re willing to stand up to a contradictory (or even controlling) partner and take charge of a situation that was originally your idea. This will be highlighted when the Sun, the Full Moon in Gemini, and Neptune all align in a tense T-square involving your Houses of Public Image, Home, and Relationships. Mr. Saturn would suggest that right now the obstacles facing you are not the undetermined external factors around your ultimate goal, but rather your own confidence (or lack thereof) about what you deserve.

Libra- Mars in your sign has been pushing you forward, but an opposition from Uranus in Aries has been dealing you one unexpected obstacle after another. At the same time Saturn and Mercury in Sagittarius have been teaching you some invaluable lessons and helping you to grow. When Mercury goes Station/Retrograde at the end of the week you should take the time to consider if you have been making all the changes you really need to. Jupiter in your House of Earnings is a blessing and Venus joining the Sun in Sagittarius should add an air of optimism, however the Full Moon in Gemini squaring Neptune to end the week might leave you feeling a little worried regarding your future prospects. Saturn inching toward Capricorn at the lowest point in your chart is certainly a downer, so expect your energy and optimism to be low for the next couple of weeks. Mr. Saturn would say that your life now is kind of like the sixties song, “California Dreaming,” sad words with a snappy melody, the point being that you keep dancing in the rain like Gene Kelly until things get better.

Scorpio- Jupiter in your sign aligning with Neptune is making you feel more vulnerable than you’d like right now, however, understand this isn’t about you being weak. Instead it’s about realizing that the true nature of strength is when you can allow yourself to be honest in your feelings without beating yourself up. Mars opposing Uranus could be creating a lot of frustration over a situation that’s beyond your control, although again the thing to understand here is that your frustration isn’t changing anything as the world turns. Saturn in your House of Self Worth is enhancing this tendency to beat yourself up, so when the Full Moon squares Neptune over the weekend don’t be surprised when Mr. Saturn takes you down memory lane and queues up the old Animals hit, “I’m just a soul whose intentions are good… Oh Lord!.. please don’t let me be misunderstood…”

Sagittarius- Mr. Saturn’s stay in your sign will be over in approximately three weeks and then you’ll be good for another 28 years. In the meantime though he is going to make sure that you learn every lesson you possibly can. Mercury going Station/Retrograde in your sign during this period will further intensify Mr. Saturn’s tutorial, while at the same time a Mars/Uranus opposition will serve to inspire your usual resistance when you’re confronted with having to do anything you don’t want. A Jupiter/Neptune trine followed by Neptune squaring the Full Moon in your House of Relationships over the weekend should cap this off as a perfect week to simply blame everything on your doppelganger, after all, you’ve never met him or her.

Capricorn- You are a resilient sign, however, with Uranus camped out at the bottom of your chart for the last few months it has kind of been been like skateboarding down a gravel incline. Mercury retrograde in your House of Secrets for the next 3 weeks may not be much fun either as you attempt to solve a mystery where you are both the victim and the perpetrator. It won’t take Sherlock Holmes or Phillip Marlowe to figure out this one though; the obvious arch villain here is responsibility. The good news though is that Jupiter trine Neptune will help you solve this case and forgive yourself in the process! There might even be a reward as well, specifically enough self-love to get you out of the “Town Without Pity” you’ve been stuck in. After a Film Noir week like this, the tendency would be to have a spree. Fair enough, but with a Gemini Full Moon squaring Neptune to end the week Mr. Saturn would advise having Ray Donovan on speed dial…just sayin’.

Aquarius- With Jupiter in your House of Public Image aligning with Neptune in your House of Self Worth you are bound and determine to establish your legend. A Mars/Uranus opposition combined with a Saturn/Mercury pairing will further motivate you to put on a sandwich board, bang a drum, and toot a horn to try and draw as much attention to yourself as possible, but to what end? Be careful when the Sun squares Neptune that you don’t start believing your own hype, because when those two pull up to form a stressful T-square with the Full Moon over the weekend you may wind up crying the “Tears of a Clown” all by yourself. When Mercury goes retrograde over the weekend as well he won’t hesitate to say “I told you so” as you learn “self-worth” and “the approval of others” are not the same thing. Mr. Saturn is cueing up a song now, check out the lyrics…”When the truth is found to be lies and all the joy within you dies…Don’t you want somebody to love?”

Pisces- Your ruling planet is Neptune, the God of the Sea, who symbolizes both illusion and higher consciousness. In other words, sometimes you have to do something really stupid in order to learn anything at all. Jupiter in your House of Philosophy aligning with Neptune could help you realize this about yourself so that hopefully you’ll wise up and stop taking for granted someone you depend on. A Mars/Uranus opposition going on in your Money Houses while Mercury slows down to a Station/Retrograde will also be forcing you to re-examine your financial responsibilities. In short, this week will seem like you’re stuck in a hall of mirrors so that no matter where you turn you can only see yourself. How long it takes for you to realize your immaturity will be, as Frank Zappa once said, “The crux of the biscuit.” In the meantime, Mr. Saturn is going to wax nostalgic with some Beatles…”the Love you take is equal to the Love you make…”

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!”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #8 Weekly Horoscopes for 10/30-11/5, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/30-11/5, 2017

 

 Hi kids! Welcome once again to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. Halloween arrives this week and the veil between the worlds is a little thinner than usual, so make sure you acknowledge all your loved ones who have moved on to another form in the Universe. Burn something for them that smells good, light a candle, or make a small offering of something they may have liked, but most of all make sure you send your love and remember…

“Each death reminds us

We are arrows and not the

Bow or the Archer”

 

 Aries- You will feel inspired at the beginning of the week with the Moon and Neptune in Pisces providing a little Cosmic Bliss and Universal Love for Halloween. Burn some incense and remind yourself not to sweat the small stuff. The Sun, Jupiter, and Mercury in your House of Sharing and Pluto in your career area mid-week could have you working through the ups and downs of a Pro-mance with a collaborator or partner. Mr. Saturn balancing an opposition of Venus in your House of Relationships with Uranus in your sign will help you work this out, even if this other person does seems to be taking you for granted. The Full Moon over the weekend in Taurus should help your confidence rebound quite nicely due to an unexpected reward you receive that’s the result of an effort you made all by yourself.

Taurus- Dare to dream this week as the veil between the worlds opens for Halloween. Realize that any opportunities coming your way now are the antidote to the insecurities you have been feeling. Don’t be like the sick person who complains when they have to swallow a pill to get better, really! Venus in your House of Work and Mr. Saturn in the House of Legacies won’t tell you to roll up your sleeves and get busy, they’ll simply leave it up to you. The Full Moon over the weekend in your sign should help you toward a meaningful epiphany, like in the movie “Field of Dreams” when the voice in the cornfield tells Kevin Costner, “Build it and they will come…”

Gemini- With the Moon and Neptune in your Public Area to start the week you will be totally caught up in the mystery as well as in the pomp and circumstance of Halloween. Venus in your House of Fun and Uranus in your House of Groups with an Aries Moon will likely mean a crazy party, so you’ll no doubt also be concerned with putting together the perfect costume. It probably won’t be until later in the week with the Sun and Jupiter moving into opposition with a Full Moon in your House of Secrets, that you will probably want to change gears and spent some quality time with a special someone. Mr. Saturn always keeps a wine key in his go bag for exactly that kind of occasion. Cheers!

Cancer- You’re a worrier by nature, which can thoroughly exhaust you much of the time, but this week your “Spidey-Sense” is being stimulated by the mystery of Halloween, so you’ll be right on the money regarding something you’ve been stressed about for a while. Mr. Saturn say’s, “trust your instincts and act on them.” Venus in your House of Home and Family opposing Uranus in the Public Sphere could suddenly bring on that challenge you’ve been anticipating, however, Mr. Saturn in the House of Maintenance will help you find the strength and resources to create an inventive solution. By the weekend when the Taurus Full Moon in your House of Dreams aspects Neptune in your House of Journeys and Jupiter in your Creative sphere, you’ll find you’re ready to face that new adventure, which only a little while ago seemed like it would be the end of the world.

Leo- Some difficult news from home at the beginning of the week could have you waxing sentimental about the past and feeling guilty. Stop it! You’re a fixed sign so the challenge for you is flexibility- not with others, that’s easy, but with your own ideas when they have outlived their usefulness. Between Uranus in your House of Philosophy opposing Venus in your House of Thinking, Mr. Saturn is acting like a fulcrum in your House of Creativity and rocking your world back and forth like Atlas. This is to teach you about equilibrium or “going with the flow,” scary, huh? Over the weekend the Full Moon in Taurus aligning with Pluto will suggest you let go of the past and focus instead on who you will be next. This week’s haiku is for you.

“Regret is fear of

What needs to be done next placed

In the wrong context”

Virgo- Sometimes you feel cornered by the expectations of others, resulting in a need to withdraw or rebel. With the Day of the Dead coming up this week, now would be an ideal time for you to try to understand what drives these feelings and look to give them a symbolic death. The Moon and Neptune in your House of Relationships will have you doubting yourself at the beginning of the week, followed by a Venus-Uranus opposition that will make you want to resist the advice (or perhaps judgment?) of a family member or partner who think they know what’s best for you. The Full Moon in Taurus over the weekend in tandem with Pluto in your House of Creativity should help you in recognizing the pattern of how you first give your power away through lack of confidence and then take it back by rebelling, something Mr. Saturn would refer to as, biting off your nose to spite your face.” Nuff said!

Libra- This week could begin with you feeling totally swept away with the otherworldliness of Halloween, as The Moon and Neptune act like a sedative in your House of Daily Routines. Right afterwards though an Aries Moon opposing Mars in your sign will have you feeling anxious to connect with others and gain approval for something you’ve been working on. Venus and Uranus supervised by Mr. Saturn in your House of Communications midweek will allow you to gain some traction and perhaps see some early yet limited rewards for your efforts. Don’t allow yourself to have too many expectations just yet though, with Pluto in your House of Foundations and the Full Moon in Taurus all Mr. Saturn has to say is “ You can’t rush Mother Nature.”

Scorpio- With all of the Major Planets currently traveling under the radar in your chart, you are totally in synch with the season in that you’re concerned with harvesting your real identity aside from what anyone else may think about you. The Sun in your sign is working with both Neptune and Pluto and requiring you to eliminate whatever isn’t working in your life, while at the same time motivating you to experiment with new approaches in regards to relating with others. When the Moon is Full in Taurus over the weekend it will be the first Major Planet to emerge into public view for you this week, meaning you are on the verge of discovering a sound foundation within yourself. Congrats! Now you’re ready to finally turn the tables on those people in your life who are always taking but never giving back.

Sagittarius- Make sure you don’t drift off and get lost at the beginning of the week when the veil opens up between this world and the spirit world on Halloween. Although with the Moon and Neptune together on Monday, followed by Venus and Uranus having a tug of war afterwards, it will certainly be tough to maintain any gravitas in this world if you insist on letting others distract you from what you know you need to do for yourself. With the Sun and Jupiter behind the scenes in Scorpio this week, Pluto in your House of Self Worth, and Neptune rising like floodwater in the basement of your chart, make sure you throw a lasso over that Taurus Full Moon this weekend so you can pull yourself up out of the rising tide of selfishness that seems to describe too many of the people in your life.

Capricorn- Do the Gods ever speak to you, or, better yet, are you even listening? With Mr. Saturn currently in your House of Confinement the danger is that maybe for practical reasons you have stopped trying to listen to the Universe. It’s certainly forgivable seeing that Uranus at the bottom of your chart has been destroying your foundations like a wildfire for a while now and when the house is burning down who has time for metaphysics? Venus and Mars passing through your Career area could potentially be helped by Mr. Saturn’s practicality, but first you need to regain your inspiration. Early in the week Neptune, the Moon, and Jupiter will give you that uplift by being a positively ethereal string trio (just in time for Halloween) if you’re willing to take the time to hear their mystical, illuminating, and otherworldly music. As the song goes, “You got to pick up every stitch.”

Aquarius- Your ambition is at its height, but don’t confuse that with insight into what’s really going on. Sort of like the difference between dressing up like a super hero for Halloween and actually being one. You want to lead and influence people but are you concerned about what they need or what you need? Neptune and the Moon at the beginning of the week will have you believing whatever you want, however, Mr. Saturn suggests that you may be blind to the forest for the trees. With Mercury unaspected in Scorpio and Uranus in your House of Communication, be careful when speaking to others. Don’t rip someone a new orifice with what you think is the truth without considering what it might be like to walk in his or her shoes. The Full Moon over the weekend may satisfy your ambition, but not without you giving up something. Let’s hope it’s not your humanity.

Pisces- If your finances have been up and down, it doesn’t mean your thoughts about life need to be as well. When Buddhists say, “life is sorrow,” it applies to both the rich and poor, for the sorrow being referred to results from our expectations not being in harmony with the world. This is a basic control issue and with Jupiter and the Sun currently in your House of Philosophy in trine to Neptune, the danger now is that you could be regressing back to infancy in your worldview rather than toward maturity. The Full Moon in your House of Thinking will be in Taurus and it will be in harmonious aspect with Pluto in your House of Dreams. Therefore, Mr. Saturn say’s;

 

“The person who does not know

Will try to stop the world

So they may hold perfection

 

The person who knows

Will let the world go

So perfection may hold them”
