Mr. Saturn’s Stars #63 Weekly Horoscopes for 12/3-12/9, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/3-12/9, 2018

  

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

 

Aries- The Lunar Arc will begin the week in your House of Transformation and the sign of Scorpio, likely making you both ambitious and a little insecure at the same time. The New Moon will occur in your House of Philosophy, where it will square Mars behind the scenes in flakey Pisces, meaning your doubts could get the best of you for a time, although when the Moon finishes up the week in your House of Career all should be well again as she first conjuncts Saturn and then Pluto, assuring that all your hard work that was originally motivated by fear will ultimately pay off. Just try not to make it a habit to use such negative re-enforcement to get things done.

 

Taurus- You don’t like change, but if you can manage to go with the flow this week you might discover that evolution is your friend. Mars and Neptune transiting together through your House of Groups could bring worries and/or conflicts in regards to your role in a project, especially if you let the New Moon and expansive Jupiter in your House of Transformation convince you that things are against you. Venus entering your House of Relationships and moving closer to Saturn in your House of Philosophy should provide a stabilizing influence, so take a deep breath and try to realize that if you don’t fear the process then there’s no reason to fear the outcome.

 

Gemini- Trust may be a big issue for you this week as Mars and Neptune together in your House of Public Image move into position to square the New Moon in your House of Partnerships. In addition, Mercury stationing and then inconjuncting Uranus retrograde may make you feel that someone is about to betray you, however, rather than going into fight or flight mode, instead take stock of where you may be vulnerable and batten down the hatches. Slow moving Saturn and Pluto have been transiting your House of Transformation for some time, so the writing has been on the wall for a while that a shake-up was inevitable. Realize that your old defense mechanisms aren’t going to work so well anymore so don’t revert to them.  As Mr. Nietzsche used to say, “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger.”

 

Cancer- There could be either a melodrama or a farce this week at work, so try to remain in the audience if at all possible, that way you can stay safe and be entertained at the same time. On the other hand, Neptune and Mars together in your House of Philosophy squaring the New Moon in your House of Routines could have you feeling quite depressed watching the nonsense that goes on between people, especially since it’s making you realize that the environment you’re currently in is not one in which you can thrive. As Venus enters your House of Creativity and moves into alignment with Saturn in your House of Partnerships, use this time you have now on the sidelines to explore what may be going on at other venues. Maybe you can find something this season at the North Pole; that’s always a happy place to work.

 

Leo- Saturn and Pluto passing through your House of Work for the next little while would indicate that for your overall well being it is important for you to be doing something that is both challenging and transformative, as opposed to just anything that can provide a paycheck. If you don’t believe me then Mars and Neptune together in your House of Transformation squaring the New Moon in your House of Creativity should provide the necessary kick in the ass to convince you. I mean haven’t you noticed that the only time you don’t feel either tired or hopeless is when you’re not wasting your time and energy doing something that has absolutely no meaning for you? This weeks Lunar Arc is all about you confronting your creative frustration for what it is and not just wasting it by letting off steam on the weekends, that is, if you’re willing to admit, “You’re mad as hell and you’re not going to take it anymore!”

 

Virgo- This weeks Lunar Arc will begin in your House of Communication, so if there is anything that needs to be said to someone close to you try not to avoid that discussion. When the New Moon hits in your House of Home and Family and squares both Neptune and Mars in your House of Relationships, don’t let someone else’s negativity or hopelessness become yours. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity will help you to turn lemons into lemonade if you can draw the necessary boundaries between you and a loved one who has, shall we say, some control issues. Recognize the fear that’s underneath their need to dominate and then remind yourself that you’re not afraid. Be “Your own personal Jesus, Someone to hear your prayers, Someone who cares.” After all, that’s what Love is, right?

 

Libra- Saturn and Pluto at the bottom of your chart have been shaking things up for a while like they are your own custom made earthquake. There will be even more fireworks this week as the Lunar Arc will begin in your House of Self Worth and then climax in your House of Communication, where it will square both Mars and Neptune in your House of Work and Daily Routines. You can always mange to get righteous about injustices against others, but what about your own injustices against yourself? Don’t look so confused. If you consider all the doubts you’re harboring in that overactive imagination of yours about where your life is going, what do you think that represents, except an injustice against yourself? Face it, an unknown future is what forces you to get to know yourself. The time has come Libra to look in the mirror and see your dreams looking back at you, not just your blemishes.

 

Scorpio- If you’ve been depressed as of late because you can’t figure out what to do with your life, then this week will either make a light bulb go off over your head or else bring a little raincloud to follow you around just like in the cartoons. The Moon beginning the week in your sign will activate your desire to know and attain, although when the New Moon occurs in your House of Self Worth and squares both Mars and Neptune in your House of Creativity, you could get mighty depressed if you don’t have anything to show for all your wanting. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Thinking are about revolutionizing your perspective first and then your surrounding world, so give yourself a break and stop with all the self-recrimination and judgment.  The Poet Rumi used the metaphor of wine all the time in his work, that’s because people are like making fine wine and that takes time; Don’t worry, your vintage is coming.

 

Sagittarius- Mercury stationing in your House of Confinement and inconjuncting Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity should have you feeling all wonky and trembling inside, like the first shudders under the ocean that eventually turn into a Tsunami hundreds of miles away. Instead of miles though let’s think in terms of time, meaning how long will it take before that wave hits to transform your world and wash away all your sadness? The New Moon this week will be in your sign and when it squares both Mars and Neptune in your House of Home and Foundations you may start to realize that this metaphorical storm has been building in you for a while and those around you who haven’t been paying attention may just end up becoming the not so innocent victims of a natural disaster; natural in so far as Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth set the alarm for this some time ago……wake up, it’s time to evolve!

 

Capricorn- Saturn and Pluto in your sign are insuring that you will evolve appropriately, whether that means going nice or kicking and screaming. With the New Moon this week occurring behind the scenes in your House of Confinement and squaring both Mars and Neptune together in your House of Thinking and Communication, be prepared to have to get pissed off before you put your ass in gear and get motivated toward some positive change. Once you get going though it will be beautiful, and with Venus entering into Scorpio and your House of Dreams, you may just end up attracting the sort of supportive partner you need. Oh, I don’t mean a home maker who will take care of everything for you, I‘m thinking more of someone who can moonlight occasionally as a dominatrix and crack that whip on you whenever it’s necessary. Ooh la la.

 

Aquarius- You pride yourself as being in mastery of your emotions, however, this week everyone may just get to see what a whining little b*tch you can be. The reason for this will likely be the New Moon in your House of Dreams being hidden behind the Sun as it squares the gloom and doom twins, Mars and Neptune, in your House of Self Worth. You had such high hopes and now you are doomed forever! Oh brother, hopefully Saturn and Pluto in hard ass Capricorn behind the scenes will give you all the tough love you need to get back in the saddle and break that mustang! Sorry for being so heavy on the metaphors, but if you can play it close to the vest this week Venus entering into the sign of Scorpio and your House of Career could bring you just the opportunity you’ve been looking for from someone who needs a real tough cookie not a cream puff.

 

Pisces- How much does it cost when all you want is everything? The New Moon this week will be in your House of Career and as it squares both Mars and Neptune in your sign be prepared for a shut down if you’ve been burning the candle at both ends trying to get yourself ahead, especially if what you’ve been donating most of your time to doesn’t pay the bills. Saturn and Pluto together in your House of Dreams will be pushing forth a conservative agenda at this time, meaning that “There is a time to every purpose under heaven”; in other words, all play and no work makes jack a poor boy, so get down to some of that dull stuff you’ve been neglecting…….it’s important too!

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #62 Weekly Horoscopes for 11/26-12/2, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 11/26-12/2, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. Thanksgiving is now in the books, which means Christmas is rapidly approaching. To quote our faithful Shih Tzu , Tinkerbell, “Fa-la-la-la-la……la-la….la…..la…….

 

 Aries- With the Sun, Jupiter, and Mercury retrograde all traveling through your House of Philosophy and squaring Mars in Pisces behind the scenes, you may find yourself feeling a lot more introspective than usual. As the Lunar Arc progresses through your Houses of Family, Creativity, Work, and Relationships you may also find yourself inordinately concerned with bigger issues than you might usually consider, such as, “why am I here,” or “what is the ultimate meaning of my life?” With Uranus retrograde in your sign moving into an inconjunct with Mercury retrograde later in the week, you could be feeling alienated by the frivolousness you perceive in those around you. If that’s the case, then consider going on a retreat or taking a meditation class; heed that inner call.

 

Taurus- Mercury retrograde in your House of Relationships is in an esoteric alignment with Uranus retrograde in your House of Confinement, which could mean that you’re suddenly and unexplainably starting to feel trapped in a situation that, up until now, you’ve always thought was okay. The Sun and Jupiter in your House of Transformation could in turn have you feeling a need to escape whatever this scenario may be, especially as they both square Mars in your House of Dreams. Of course this is all probably an illusion and quite likely you’re exactly where you belong, although on the other hand there might also be a grain of truth in what you’re feeling. With that in mind, if you have an unexpected itch this week, allow yourself to scratch it so you’ll know for sure what the truth is.

 

Gemini- How much do you care what others think of you? As the Sun and Jupiter pass through your House of Relationships and square Mars in your House of Public Image, you could find yourself worrying a bit more than usual about how you measure up in the judgment game out there in the arena of life.  With that in mind, be careful that you don’t end up getting ju-jitsued by your own guilt, as Saturn and Pluto in dutiful Capricorn oppose the Moon passing through your House of Self Worth, making you more susceptible than usual to criticism. A word to the wise, don’t let a boss or competitor get into your head or you could end up losing sight of who you really are in the fun house of mirrors they’re projecting on you.

 

Cancer- This could be a week where challenges arise on the job that will seem to test your patience, although perhaps what’s really being tested is your philosophy of life. For whatever reason, you’re the one who’s been chosen to battle the dragon or soothe the resident crazy person at work and how you go about it will determine not only how the situation gets rectified, but also how you will finally end up turning a corner and leaving guilt, frustration, and a lack of confidence behind. How is all that possible, you ask? These s.o.b’s are out to get me, for sure! It is certainly true that your adversaries may not like you, but if you let Venus at your Foundation kill ‘em with kindness and Uranus in your House of Career show them what crazy like a fox is all about, then it won’t matter if they like you or not, they will respect you and that will have it’s own rewards.

 

Leo- When the Moon passes through your sign this week it will align beautifully with both the Sun and Jupiter in your House of Creativity, likely giving you the necessary inspiration to deal with a particularly recalcitrant person who would seem to have you where the hairs are short. Things could be tense, but Saturn aligning with Mars in your House of Transformation should give you the chutzpah and the moxie to be able to skin a skunk and still walk away smelling like a rose. The element of surprise (as well as intelligence) will also be on your side, as Uranus retrograde opposes Venus in charming Libra and you demonstrate a complete and total mastery of Zen and the Art of getting what you need. Be prepared for the future to look so bright you may need shades.

 

Virgo- As Mars passes through your House of Relationships to square both the Sun and Jupiter in your Home Area, things could get a little heated with a partner and/or a family member. Because all of the above planets will be in mutable signs (Pisces and Sag) any conflicts that arise will most likely blow over as quickly as they appeared. The trick of it all will be not to buy into the agenda of someone you know is a con artist (even if you love them) and with Saturn in your House of Creativity aligning nicely with Mars, you should be able to speak softly and manage this situation quite well as long as you’re carrying the big stick of reality where everyone can see it.

 

Libra- Charming Venus transiting through your sign is the perfect cover for you right now, but only as long as the snarky rebelliousness you’re really feeling gets directed into the proper channels. I say this because with Jupiter and the Sun in your House of Communication squaring Mars in the mutable sign of Pisces, you are no doubt feeling your oats. A bad place to direct the sort of verbal harangue these placements might indicate would be toward a fool (or God forbid, a boss) you just can’t suffer any longer, a better place would be into a creative project where righteous indignation and vitriol can pass as humor. Pick your poison correctly and you may just live to kvetch another day.

 

Scorpio- The Sun and Jupiter in your House of Self Worth squaring Mars in your House of Creativity may make you seem possessed this week as you try to figure out a solution for an unexpected problem at work. You’re the perfect person to work on this because you’re the only one who gives a shit, which doesn’t bother you as long as it gets you away from all the dorks you work with. Just be careful not to get lost in this as a life and death challenge; after all you could call a repairman, this isn’t “Heart of Darkness.” With that said, Saturn in your House of Ideas will be aligning nicely with Mars so you very well could carry the day and get some good brownie points with the boss as well. Go ahead, flaunt that “Yankee Ingenuity.”

 

Sagittarius- This week could mark a turning point for you if you can manage not to let a long time nemesis rain on your parade yet again. The Sun and Jupiter in your sign is putting more than a little pep in your step, although with Mars transiting through your House of Family such enthusiasm is exactly the kind of motivation a stick in the mud would need to mess with you by spreading their prophecies of gloom and doom. The good news is that with Saturn in your House of Self Worth managing Mars like a cowboy herding mustangs, for once you may not be de-railed by this person but will instead either laugh at them or (more likely) feel sorry for the miserable, pathetic s.o.b. they are. After all, what kind of person can only feel joy if they make someone else feel bad? Really.

 

Capricorn- Saturn and Pluto in your sign are likely making you feel responsible, duty bound, guilty, and probably even trapped right now, however, don’t fret, the Sun and Jupiter are rallying the crowd behind the scenes, although with Mars in your House of Local Routines squaring that crowd, you’ll probably have to settle for a quiet glass of wine after work rather than a real vacation or anything special. Venus in your House of Public Image will help you to keep up appearances despite your bad mood, while Uranus at the bottom of your chart will inspire you to turn that quiet glass of wine into a bottle (or two) behind closed doors. Just make sure you dump the empties after dark so the neighbors don’t catch on.

 

Aquarius- Even with the Sun and Jupiter transiting your House of Dreams and causing you to pretend you’re unstoppable, the reality is that Mars in your House of Self Worth is literally frightening you to death, which is not necessarily a bad thing if the motivation of fight or flight turns into you getting what you want. Venus in your House of Philosophy opposing Uranus retrograde in your House of Thinking is causing a confrontation between the optimist and pessimist within you, while Mercury retrograde backing up into your House of Career is helping you to realize that the light you’re hoping for at the end of the tunnel will only be arrived at by passing through the darkness first.  As a poet once wrote, “Do not go gentle into that good night…Rage, rage against the dying of the light.”

 

Pisces- The Sun and Jupiter in your House of Career has you looking toward the mountaintop, while Mars in your sign is presenting you with the immediate challenge of how to begin the journey. Saturn in your House of Groups would suggest you reach out for some help from someone with more experience, perhaps an individual who has already climbed their own Matterhorn. Venus passing through your House of Transformation and Shared Resources would clearly re-iterate this partnership theme, while Uranus retrograde in your House of Self Worth would suggest not having too many expectations of what you need to learn until you actually learn it.

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #55 Weekly Horoscopes for 10/1-10/7, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/1-10/7, 2018

 

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

What a shit show this past week has been, huh? I would refer you back to my Aquarius comments from last week as well as to my Aquarius comments for this week…Maybe Bart O’Kavanaugh should be reading Mr. Saturn’s Stars? At any rate, there’s finally going to be an FBI investigation into the allegations of sexual misconduct against the SCOTUS nominee, let’s just hope all 3 complaints are fully vetted and it’s not just a cherry pick chosen by the Republican majority. Oh, and a warning to the FBI Agents that may have to talk to Kavanaugh, he’s a screamer…. and make sure you bring some tissues.

 

Aries- This may be a time when you’re willing to step out from behind the mask you usually wear in public and reveal who you truly are. Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Transformation and squaring Mars in your House of Groups will likely have you chaffing against any status quo expectations being presented to you, while Mercury in your House of Relationships squaring Pluto in your house of Public Image will inspire you to speak the truth and/or find out the real deal in whatever situations you may find yourself involved in. You are by nature an individualistic sign, so if you’ve caught yourself as of late compromising more than you should, now is the time when you may just decide to throw caution to the wind and demand, as The Pointer Sister’s sang,  “It’s Got to be Real.”

 

Taurus- Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Relationships will have you re-examining your connections to various people in your life, especially with Mars in your House of Public Image squaring the Goddess of Love and putting pressure on you to be “A Man (or Woman) for All Seasons.” Pluto in your House of Philosophy squaring Mercury should see some important info coming to light about some things that may have been said about you behind the scenes that will end up being quite hurtful. It’s important to realize that the individuals who made these statements are clearly not your friends. With Jupiter also passing through your House of Relationships you’ll likely take the high road regarding this matter, which is fine, just make sure you remember the old saying, “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.”

 

Gemini- There may be pressures on you now to deliver at work and it’s important that you find the proper motivation in order to adequately rise to the challenge. Mars in your House of Philosophy may find you feeling a need to rebel against what you consider to be unfair demands by a superior, although with Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Relationships and aligning with Saturn in your House of Legacies, it may just be that you’ll have to suck it up and do what’s gotta be done. Pluto is also in your House of Legacies and as it aligns with Jupiter in your House of Work those two planets together are about wealth, which could mean what you suffer through today you will benefit from tomorrow. “Go the distance.”

 

Cancer- We never know what we’re capable of until we’re challenged and this may just be one of those weeks for you. Pluto in your House of Relationships is being squared by Mercury in your House of Foundations, which means that facts may come to light now involving someone you were convinced was one way (perhaps a family member) but is actually another…..surprise!!! What’s important is not that they’re a shit, but that Venus going retrograde in your House of Creativity and squaring Mars in your House of Transformation will see you leaping like a ninja out ahead of the curve and doing all the damage control necessary to reduce your losses (and disappointment) to a minimum. Jupiter is also in your House of Creativity, and as he aligns with Pluto you may find that when the dust clears even if you’ve lost respect for one person in your life, you may have gained an unexpected new ally in the process.

 

Leo- You are the sign of leadership, however, sometimes followers can own a leader if the person in charge needs the ego gratification that supplication can provide. Mars in your House of Relationships now represents the demands that your various relationships are putting on you, while Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Foundations is you remembering what you need and how you’re not getting it. What to do? Mercury in your House of Communication squaring Pluto would suggest you start setting some boundaries, although the needy folks around you might not appreciate it, but after all, they’re the problem, aren’t they? Uranus in your House of Public Image aligning with Saturn is all about you doing you, so for the time being if doing you means going solo, then so be it!  “I am Legend.”

 

Virgo- Pressures on the job could actually become a motivation for you to rethink how you gave up a dream not too long ago because you were discouraged. Venus in your House of Communication squaring Mars in your House of Work will undoubtedly help you to realize how much energy you’re being forced to spend now doing something you don’t like, while Mercury in your House of Self Worth squaring Pluto in your House of Creativity will have you feeling all the subconscious creativity you’re holding back, simply because it’s making you ill. Saturn is also in your House of Creativity, and as it aligns with Uranus in your House of Philosophy, this is the time for you to bust out and resume chasing down that original dream…”Ba ba ba, ba bop bop, I feel free”

 

Libra- Mercury in your sign is making you want to share with the world the insights you have struggled to acquire, however, Pluto in your House of Foundations is asking you to be patient because you really have no idea yet how much these ideas are going to affect the world’s view of you as well. Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Self Worth is squaring Mars in your House of Creativity, meaning that something right now which seems obvious to you may actually be quite a revolutionary (and mysterious) viewpoint for someone else. Let Jupiter in your House of Earnings aligning with Pluto give you the confidence to be patient that your time is coming. In the meantime, pay close attention as structured and organized Saturn aligns with Uranus retrograde in your House of Transformation to pave the way for the new life you will soon embark upon.

 

Scorpio- As Mercury behind the scenes squares Pluto in your House of Thinking and Communication, be prepared for a perspective you have on a certain situation to change quite suddenly. In addition, be prepared for the situation itself to change as well, especially since Venus is going retrograde in your sign and moving back into a square with Mars in your House of Home and Foundations. Which came first, the writing on the wall, or you thinking how you could use a change? It doesn’t really matter because you should feel confident that your spidey-sense was right on the money and everything seems to be going in your favor regardless. Saturn in your House of siblings aligning with Uranus retrograde in your House of Relationships could find you revisiting a weird misunderstanding from the past with a family member. Don’t expect a different resolution this time around because even if you have changed, they haven’t.

 

Sagittarius- As Venus begins her backward motion in your House of Hidden Things, expect memories of either unrequited love or the one that got away to haunt you now. Mars will be squaring Venus from your House of Communication, so if you feel a strong urge to look up someone from your past, don’t. You’re no longer the same person you were and going down memory lane could end up with you regressing in a very unhealthy way. Pluto in your House of Self Worth squaring Mercury in your House of Dreams represents the need for you to face the truth and acknowledge the hard lesson about love you received from this person, thereby determining whether or not you learned anything. Of course there’s a very good possibility you’ve been hiding in a world of illusion since then, and if that’s the case then this is the time to realize it, once and for all.

 

Capricorn- With Saturn and Pluto in your sign, the revolution is no doubt raging, both within you and in the surrounding world. Pluto is squaring Mercury in your House of Public Image, so if you find that you’re still a little lax about setting up boundaries, then perhaps someone may come crashing through this week to remind you of the work yet to be done. On the other hand, Saturn aligning nicely with Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity will help you to be like Felix the Cat with his magick bag of tricks so that you can get right to fixing any damage that may occur. Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Dreams may mean it’s time to curb either your expenses or leisure time, especially if you have found that you are currently distracted from what you’ve hoped to accomplish. If you can be honest with yourself, then Jupiter aligning with Pluto should give you the confidence to get right back on track.

 

Aquarius- Mars in your sign squaring Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Career may require you to revisit something that might have gotten lost in your recent surge forward toward new foes and new battles. Pluto behind the scenes has been digging around and Mercury in your House of Philosophy has been showing you some really crazy secrets that could send the whole shithouse up in smoke if you were that type; well, are you? Noble Jupiter is also in your House of Career and as he aligns with Pluto back there in the shadows hopefully he will advise you to be prudent (and hopefully you’ll listen). A time of reckoning is coming for the bad guys, so just call the sheriff and don’t try to make a citizen’s arrest. Saturn behind the scenes aligning with Uranus at your Foundation would suggest you just do your part and try to remain humble; as the saying goes, “good things come to those that wait.” Surprise!!!

 

Pisces- If you haven’t been satisfied as of late, and I don’t mean with the material quality of your life but rather with the content of your character, then Mars in your Subconscious area squaring Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Philosophy might make this a good time to do some serious inner work with a qualified professional. Mercury in your House of Transformation squaring Pluto would reinforce this point as those two together are about finding what’s hidden. Neptune is your sign’s ruler and having it at home now could end up being either a gift or a curse, just like a parent can alternately be a source of frustration as well as love. Either way you need to find out who you truly are, and if that’s your motivation at this point in time, then having your ruling planet in your sign will probably be a source of enlightenment rather than illusion. Namaste.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #50 Weekly Horoscopes for 8/27-9/2, 2018

 

Weekly Horoscopes for 8/27-9/2, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. As we close out the “Dog Days” of August and head towards Labor Day, it’s getting closer all the time to that magick moment when we’ll all be able to raise a toast together and enjoy Mueller Time along with a good barbequed Rump Roast……..

 

“So won’t someone help me to break up this crown?

Let’s all drink to the death of a clown

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la”

-The Kinks

 

Aries- As Mars goes station/direct in your House of Career to start the week, the delays of the recent past that have been frustrating you should start to gradually change. However, be careful what you wish for, as the forward movement of Mars in the near future will be heading back into a volatile square with crazy old Uranus. Right now though as the Sun in early Virgo and your House of Work lingers in a Grand Trine with both Saturn in your House of Career and Uranus in your House of Self Worth, at least enjoy the fact that the asses you’ve been forced to endure recently have finally managed to get their bearings straight to finally figure out which end should be leading the way.

 

Taurus- With Uranus retrograde in your sign aligning with both the Sun in your House of Creativity and Saturn retrograde in your House of Philosophy, any ideas or inspirations that may have stalled recently could get a revitalizing push forward, especially as Mars begins its direct motion and prepares to enter your house of Career in the near future. Jupiter in your House of Partnerships squaring Mercury in your House of Foundations could also motivate you now to push back at the status quo, especially if the same old way of doing things is stifling the newfound visions inspired by Uranus. Neptune in your House of Dreams could have you feeling quite inspired at this time, so make sure some boring pragmatist who needs to un-bunch their shorts doesn’t manage discourage the dreamer within you. As the song goes, “Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind/ It’s gonna be bright, bright, Sun-Shiny day.”

 

Gemini- Neptune in your House of Public Image is probably making you feel that you can get away with pretending whatever you want about yourself and the world will just go along with it……NOT!!! Jupiter squaring Mercury in your House of Communications could see someone you’ve taken for granted giving you the shaft where the sun don’t shine, while at the same time Uranus behind the scenes starts to unravel the control you’ve tried to establish as all your co-dependent minions start to panic like rats on a sinking ship. Mars going direct in your House of Death and Transformation will signal the long uphill battle that awaits, as it slowly moves into your House of Long distance affairs and into an explosive square with volatile Uranus. Illusion and lies within, and enemies surrounding you; good luck as the chickens come home to roost…..cluck, cluck!!!

 

Cancer- Jupiter in your House of Creativity squaring Mercury in your House of Self Worth could turn out to be the kick in the ass you’ve needed for a while now. At the same time, Jupiter will also be aligning nicely with Neptune in your House of Ideas and Inspiration, making some of those visions you’ve always held in check just too fabulous to contain any longer; so, what are you waiting for! The Sun in your House of Communication aligning with Uranus in your House of Dreams and Saturn in your House of Relationships are all about getting out there and pushing back against anyone or anything that tries to control your flow; again, what are you waiting for, full speed ahead! In addition, Mars going direct this week in your House of Partnerships would speak to you no longer wasting your time for the convenience of anyone else, but instead, investing wholeheartedly in relocating to the promised land of doing you. “Somewhere over the Rainbow……..”

 

Leo- As the Sun transits now through your House of Self Worth you could be feeling a pressing need to make your mark in the world. Uranus passing through your House of Public Image would suggest that whatever you choose to do along these lines will no doubt be unique, but more importantly is that it should also be true to who you really are. Mars going direct in your House of Health and Work will provide all the necessary energy you might need, while Jupiter squaring Mercury in your sign will alternately provide the X-factor of both charisma and attitude. Leo is a sign of leadership so don’t hesitate to put yourself out there. Venus in your House of Communication aligning with Mercury in your sign will give you the gift of gab,  or the gift of presence if that’s what is needed; either way all eyes should be on you, so remember what Mom always said, maintain good posture and if you can’t say something good, don’t say anything at all…..just smile.

 

Virgo- The Sun in your sign aligning with Uranus in your House of Philosophy and Saturn in your House of Creativity should have you feeling quite inspired at this time. As a result, don’t hesitate to follow your intuition, for no matter how “out there” your ideas may seem to the rank and file minds, you will find a way to make your visions manifest.  Jupiter in your House of Communication squaring Mercury in Leo behind the scenes represents the compulsion that drives almost every great artist; it’s not that you want to express yourself, rather it’s that you have to, or else you will no doubt spontaneously combust in a bonfire of your own passionate creativity. Neptune in your House of Partnerships aligning with Pluto in your House of Creativity could also find you crossing paths with someone special at this time. This meeting might be romantic, but it doesn’t necessarily have to be; perhaps a mentor or sponsor who sees you innate potential could represent the type of meaningful relationship you need at this time in your life.

 

Libra- After having retreated from your House of Creativity into your House of Foundations, Mars will once again start to move forward this week back into your Creative area. If you have been working on any sort of a creative project as of late, make sure that over the next couple of weeks you work especially hard to bring it across the finish line and into the hands of whoever can get it out there for you. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth aligning with Neptune and squaring Mercury should also make you particularly adept at this time in regards to finding the holistic solution to just about any problem. Uranus is another friend you can count on at this time, as it crosses through your House of Transformation and aligns with Saturn at your core to make your insights especially sharp and your ability to connect with the right folks at the right time particularly uncanny.

 

Scorpio- Mars is the co-ruler of your sign and as it goes station/direct to start the week in your House of Communication you need to be ready to start pushing an important agenda forward, whether it be at work or in your personal life. Uranus in your House of Partnerships might indicate that you could face some initial resistance to some of your ideas, but the fact that Uranus also trines Saturn in your House of Communication should mean that if you have done your homework and your facts are straight you should be able to convince just about anybody of anything. Jupiter in your sign aligning with Neptune in your House of Creativity and squaring Mercury in your House of Career will probably give you all the charisma and eloquence you need, just make sure you also take the time to listen; building a network of supporters and collaborators at this time will insure that your new success will become your long term success.

 

Sagittarius- If things have seemed a little bogged down as of late, Mars going station/direct in your House of Self Worth should help to motivate you this week. Saturn retrograde is also in your Self worth area and as it aligns nicely with Uranus in your House of Work, expect the unexpected, perhaps even a surprise perk based on something you did for someone in the recent past. Jupiter behind the scenes is alternately being squared by Mercury in your House of Philosophy and trined by Neptune in your House of Foundations, meaning that if you’re willing to draw a line in the sand about your personal boundaries, you just might get some cooperation and respect from someone who depends on you and can’t really afford to piss you off. Check and mate in your favor regarding this week’s power struggle.

 

Capricorn- You should have energy to spare this week as Mars goes station/direct in your sign, joining your ruler Saturn and transformative Pluto. In the meantime, Jupiter in your House of Dreams will be providing both leadership and inspiration as it first squares Mercury in your House of Transformation and then aligns nicely with Neptune in your House of Communication. Innovative and freewheeling Uranus in your House of Creativity though will provide the real kick, as he continues in a beneficial alignment with the Sun in your House of Philosophy and Saturn in your sign. This is a time when you might be so busy that everything you’re managing to accomplish might not become evident to you until some time later on, when you will be able to look back and realize all the track you had to put down in order to get you wherever it is you find yourself in the future.

 

Aquarius- You may have had a brief rest over the last few weeks as Mars backed out of your sign, but now as the Planet of War goes station/direct and gets ready to re-enter your home turf prepare for the poop to hit the fan once again. An approaching square to Uranus in your House of Foundations could see you facing some unexpected renovations on the home front, while a square to Venus in your House of Long Distance Affairs could see you having to revisit a family conflict that an annoying someone just won’t let go of. With Jupiter in your House of Public Image aligning nicely with Neptune in your House of Self Worth, you should be able to remain magnanimous in the face of this pesty relative’s badgering, however, with Mercury in your House of Relationships, don’t hesitate to shut this person up with a few chosen words if you have to.

 

Pisces- As Mars goes station/direct in your House of Career, get ready to hit the ground running at either work or school. Saturn retrograde aligning nicely with Uranus retrograde in your House of Communication will likely have you reconnecting with associates you haven’t seen in a while, making it seem as though the air is buzzing with new plans and ideas. Jupiter in your House of Philosophy will also be aligning nicely with Neptune now, as well as squaring Mercury in your House of Routines, therefore likely setting the stage for a hectic but productive week. A word to the wise, look at the coming months as a marathon and not a sprint, that way you can pace yourself and literally experience the best of everything.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #48 Weekly Horoscopes for 8/13-8/19, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 8/13-8/19, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Here we are in the Dog Days of August (woof! woof!) with 6 retrograde planets (soon to be 5) making it look like we still have a long, hot “Summer in the City” in front of us.

“All around, people looking half dead

Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head”

 

Aries- With Mars retrograde backing up from your House of Dreams into your House of Career, it looks like there’ll be no rest for the weary this week when it comes to turning your dreams into reality. Saturn retrograde is also in your House of Career, and as it aligns with Uranus retrograde in your House of Self Worth and squares Venus in your House of Relationships, try not to complain too much about having to go over everything yet again before you can move forward toward whatever your goal is. Jupiter in your House of Transformation aligning with Neptune behind the scenes is all about compassion, so try not to be too hard on anyone if you’re not getting what you want because, if truth be told, with 6 retrograde planets to start the week we’re all in the same rut at this point and complaining about it won’t make anything better.

 

Taurus- Expect Uranus retrograde in your sign to shake things up, especially as it aligns with Saturn retrograde in your House of Philosophy to let all sorts of sacred cows out of the pen in your “everything’s got to be just right world.” Venus in your House of Routines will further contribute to this anarchy as it also aspects Saturn, so try your best to see the silver lining if your comfort zone ends up getting dragged through the mud of inconvenience so that it ends up becoming soiled beyond recognition. If it seems like nothing is going to be easy this week then the surprise will certainly be on you, as Jupiter in your House of Relationships aligns with Neptune in your House of Friends to bring either a Florence Nightingale or a Mr. Clean into your life for some relatively delightful damage control. If you have any sort of romantic maid or workman fantasy be prepared for some serious role playing…….Oooh la la !!!

 

Gemini- Uranus retrograde in your House of Confinement is probably making you feel like a tiger in a cage, and as it aligns with Saturn retrograde in your House of Transformation you’re also probably feeling like feeding time will never come, hence you are likely going to be one angry cat this week. Nevertheless, try to be cool and not to scratch anyone or else your impetuousness might end up getting your head on the wall of some wannabe big game hunter who ordinarily wouldn’t be able to hit the broad side of a barn. Mars backing up into your House of Shared Resources would suggest you try to play nice no matter how bad things seem: in other words, do the tricks they want you to and act like a pussycat. As noble Jupiter aligns with compassionate Neptune maybe one of those people going “Awwwwh” in the audience over how hard you’re trying to be nice will help you get out of that cage you’re stuck in and offer a chance at a new life as a “Fat Cat.” Purrrrrrrr!

 

Cancer- Mars backing up into your House of Relationships and Open Enemies could serve to reopen an old wound that you had hoped was healed. With Saturn and Pluto retrograde in that House as well, maybe your having to revisit this is about finally letting go of the past rather than going for revenge and another round of combat with a particular individual. Jupiter in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune in your House of Philosophy would speak to your enlightenment in this situation, but only if you can find the courage to believe in your finer qualities and not react to what an adversary is accusing you of, mostly because it makes their sorry ass look a whole lot better than it is. Uranus retrograde in your House of Groups and Dreams is all about breaking free from the past, “so put all those troubles in your old kit bag and smile, smile, smile!!!”

 

Leo- If you have been feeling withdrawn over the last few weeks, Mercury going station/direct in your sign and aligning with Venus in your House of Communication will likely make you want to get back out there and throw that charm around once again, especially if it can help you out in regards to a dispute with an older individual at work. This person represents the past and you are the future, so let Uranus in your House of Career inspire you to let your freak flag fly in the face of their curmudgeonly whining. No body likes them, people just feel guilty about telling an old fart they need “Beano.” Jupiter in your House of Home and Family aligning with Neptune in your House of Transformation may require you to grow with a family situation rather than abandoning it as you had planned. Sorry, but you’re the natural leader here, so get to work and wrangle those spoiled brats!

 

Virgo- Mercury going station/direct in your House of the Secret Self and Mars backing into your House of Creativity will likely have you rethinking something you had thought was a good idea but is really no longer materially feasible. Neptune in your House of Relationships aligning with Jupiter in your House of Communication could make expressing this to the involved parties a bit difficult, mostly because of an unwillingness on your part to tell it like it is. With Uranus retrograde in your House of Transformation aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity, don’t confuse being true to yourself in circumstances which have changed for the worse with feeling guilty about disappointing someone who has never really had anyone’s interests in mind but their own. Don’t be afraid to do you and let the chips fall where they may, after all, they’re mostly your chips.

 

Libra- Mars has backed up from your House of Creativity into your House of Foundations, meaning the time has probably come for you to ask for some feedback on something you’ve been working on that could benefit from a fresh perspective. Mercury going station/direct in your House of Dreams and aligning with Venus in your sign would further indicate that any editorial help you need is there for the asking, the question is, why won’t you ask for it? Jupiter in your House of Self Worth aligning with Neptune can help address any problems you might have about your deservedness, which is the far more important issue here and ultimately something you can only answer for yourself. At this point enter Uranus retrograde in your House of Transformation asking you bluntly what the hell the problem is about you feeling worthy, while at the same time Saturn retrograde is saying, “You heard the man, answer the question!” Well, answer the damn question!

 

Scorpio- Uranus retrograde in your House of Relationships aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Communication could make you the unexpected object of desire for a person either much older or younger than yourself. This doesn’t have to be awkward or any sort of big deal if you can just keep in mind that Saturn is also squaring Venus in your House of Secrets, meaning the attraction may be more about lust than love on your part. Mercury going station/direct in your House of Public Image would warn you to be careful here and try not to be too cavalier in private with someone you don’t really want to be seen with in public. Jupiter in your sign aligning with Neptune in your House of Romance may make you think this situation is harmless, but you really don’t know what this individual’s agenda might be, so try to have some foresight here and remember the Dylan song, “Go ‘way from my window/ Leave at your own chosen speed/ I’m not the one you want, babe/ I’m not the one you need.”

 

Sagittarius- Mercury going station/direct this week in your House of Philosophy and Jupiter in your House of the Inner Self could end up having a very revelatory influence now, as it slowly begins to dawn on you that no matter what the circumstances of your life are, it does matter deep down what you believe. Things are not hopeless. You can make a difference. Mars moving backward into your House of Self Worth should help you to understand that the cynic you have pretended to be for all this time was only a mask, a defense mechanism covering a very deep sadness at the corruption of the world. You’re actually a sensitive soul; do you realize that makes you strong and not weak? You might be speechless at this point, but all I have to say is “whoa!” You know what this means? YOU CAN BE HAPPY! Right now! Go ahead, laugh right in the face of the nearest asshole and enjoy yourself. It’s their problem, not yours.

 

Capricorn- Don’t turn the other cheek to a critic, counterpunch with another idea. Mercury going station/direct in your House of Transformation along with Jupiter in your House of Dreams are working together so that you will have the confidence to let the inspiration of Neptune in your House of Communication express itself; like Picasso releasing his one-eyed women on the world.  With this in mind, Mars backing up into your sign should provide the necessary fuel now for the slow, steady upward climb from the depths of a creative idea’s inception to the apex of its expression. In turn, Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity aligning with Saturn in your sign should serve to impose order upon the chaos and set the stage for the clear intuitive voice in the back of your head to announce defiantly into the deafening silence, “Let there be light.”

 

Aquarius- With Mars moving back into your House of Confinement, you will now have a total of 3 retrograde planets working behind the scenes to turn something you cannot outdistance from the past into your most immediate challenge. Who were you then, and how has what you’ve done since influenced who you are now? Uranus retrograde in your House of Foundations could furnish some surprises as you try and work this out, especially if whatever you did in the past doesn’t seem to reflect well on the person you’re pretending to be now. Jupiter in your House of Public Image aligning with Neptune in your House of Self Worth will try to conceal this contradiction, although as Jupiter also squares this weeks Mercury station/direct in your House of Relationships, someone close to you may inadvertently discover something you’d prefer to remain a secret and it could change the whole landscape of your association. Venus in Libra will make you want to continue the subterfuge if you can, but then who would you be; do you even know?

 

Pisces- Neptune in your sign for the past few years has probably been making your life seem like a cross between a funhouse hall of mirrors and a London Fog, although on the bright side you’ve probably also managed to stumble over a few important lessons during this time as well. With 6 retrograde planets now, including Uranus in your House of Communications and Saturn in your House of Career, you’re certainly not out of the woods yet, although with Mercury going station/direct in your House of Daily Routines you should be able to finally get some traction in terms of any immediate problems either at home or on the job, and with Venus in your House of Shared Resources you might even discover some valuable new friends along the way. “Follow the Yellow Brick Road.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #47 Weekly Horoscopes for 8/6-8/12, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 8/6-8/12, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! What a week we have coming up! The Sun and Mercury will pass each other going in opposite directions over a New Moon and a Solar Eclipse in Leo, Venus will cross over into her home sign of Libra to align effectively with Mars retrograde, and Uranus will go station/retrograde giving us a grand total of 6 (count ‘em 6) retrograde planets at this time. Intense, huh?

Let’s get to it and see how all this Astro-drama will effect each of you.

 

Aries- The Sun and Mercury going in opposite directions over a Solar Eclipse and a New Moon in Leo in your House of Creativity could see some loose ends with a creative project coming a little looser before they finally get tied up, especially since this Leo contingent will be squared by Jupiter passing through your House of Shared Resources. There is likely nothing wrong with what you’re actually working on, it’s just that some people need to be squeaky wheels to feel important. Try to grin and bear it. You’ll no doubt get some help in the acceptance department from Friendly Venus as she enters your House of Partnerships, although how long this good feeling will last will certainly be challenged when she moves into a square with Saturn retrograde in your House of Career. Best to put up a “Gone Fishing” sign for now and wait until the majority of planets are going forward rather than backward before you get too concerned about anything.

 

Taurus- There should be a lot of drama on the home front this week, especially involving communications with family and close associates as the Sun and Mercury pass each other going in opposite directions through a New Moon and a Solar Eclipse in your House of Foundations. You may have to repeat something yet again for someone who is having a hard time paying attention over the ambient noise of Mars retrograde lingering in a tense square with a now retrograde Uranus. Handle any dense colleagues or relatives with kid gloves at this time, as a proud and sensitive Jupiter in Scorpio and your House of Relationships will square the entire above-mentioned Eclipse contingent. With 6 retrograde planets now, expect your legendary patience to be tested. Circumstances may be waving a red handkerchief in front of your face, but remember, you could just as easily look away and be a cow grazing instead of an angry bull about to charge.

 

Gemini- With Venus in your House of Fun, the possibilities for Summer recreation are at their apex, as a result, any work demands made upon you now could elicit a less than pleasant reaction, either from you or the people you will likely want to blow off in order to go play. Face it though, it will be hard not to come off as being arrogant if you try to defend your desire for leisure, after all, if you don’t do the job in question someone else will have to. Jupiter in your House of Work squaring the Solar Eclipse and New Moon in your House of Communications will try to remind you that being the boss doesn’t always mean getting to do whatever you want, sometimes it means the buck stops at your desk and the responsibility for whatever is going on is yours. Besides, with 6 planets currently retrograde you can always take some time off next week.

 

Cancer- The Solar Eclipse and New Moon this week will be occurring in your House of Self Worth and the “me first” sign of Leo. If you have been running around like a crazy person for most of the summer doing things for this one and that one, then the time has undoubtedly come for you to do something for yourself. Jupiter in your House of Fun would concur, and as he squares both the Sun and Mercury retrograde back in that House of Self Worth, what better time is there than now to kick back and listen to the ocean with some delicious wine swishing around in your mouth? Venus will be entering into your House of Symbolic Foundations at this time as well and moving into a square with Saturn retrograde in your House of Partnerships, meaning if you’re ready to relax then the first step would be to stop feeling guilty about needing to take care of everything and everyone and be willing to let some of your co-dependents learn how to do some shit for themselves! Word!

 

Leo- When an irresistible force meets an immovable object there are two possibilities; confrontation or negotiation. You might find yourself immersed in a power struggle this week that’s not necessarily of your own choosing, however, since you refuse to be pushed around, stop thinking like a victim and start acting like you’re ready to take control. With the new Moon and the Solar Eclipse in your sign this week and both of them in square to Jupiter in your House of Symbolic Foundations, there is an element of destiny at play here; not quite “The Sword in the Stone,” but face it, you probably are the best qualified and most respected person in whatever situation this brouhaha is happening. Venus entering your House of Communications should be of immense help in making your case for any support you might need, although when she moves into an eventual square to Saturn expect there to be delays because the status quo doesn’t change overnight and oppressors don’t go without a fight.

 

Virgo- Revelations about a new you could go off now like a roman candle as this week’s Solar Eclipse and New Moon in fiery Leo explode behind the scenes in your House of the Secret Self. A square to this Leo contingent will come from Jupiter in your House of Communications, which in turn will trine Neptune in your House of Partnerships, meaning everything in the past that made you feel subservient will now be transformed into an inner strength that will help you to realize that your vulnerability has been your true power rather than any sort of weakness. As a result, you will calmly speak your mind with more effect and gravitas than the loudest screamer could ever attain as they try to camouflage their fear and insecurity behind bullying and greed. In addition, Venus will enter your House of Self Worth and align nicely with Mars retrograde in your House of Health, implying that your charisma will likely be at an all time high. Welcome to the ranks of the Peaceful Warriors, we salute you!

 

Libra- This week’s Solar Eclipse and New Moon will be in the charismatic sign of Leo and your House of Groups and Dreams. A square to this event from Jupiter in your House of Self Worth could end up furnishing the very break you need to get a creative project you’ve been working on into the right hands at the right time. As Venus enters your sign she will be aligning with Mars retrograde in your House of Creativity, so make sure you tie up any loose ends and do any necessary edits on the above mentioned project so that it will be ready to be revealed to the world at the time of its optimum ripeness. With 6 retrograde Planets now it is important that you concentrate on marshaling your forces together like a hibernating bear stores their energy, that way, when the proper season arrives you will have no worries as you will confidently prove to be “A Man (Woman) for All Seasons.”

Scorpio- Ambition will be your middle name right now with this week’s New Moon and Solar Eclipse in your House of Career and Public Image squaring expansive Jupiter in your sign. You will be no doubt driven; just don’t get driven to distraction. The downside of this powerful eclipse can be an accelerated sense of hubris, especially with the eclipse being in the often times arrogant sign of Leo and Jupiter being in your sign, which we all know can at times become unnaturally obsessed with just about anything. If you can manage to keep your head small enough to get through the doorway, Venus entering her home sign of Libra behind the scenes and aligning with Mars retrograde in your house of Creativity might actually give you the chance to reveal a larger than life talent at this time, rather than being side tracked by a larger than life ego…..”When I was younger, so much younger than today, I never needed anybody’s help in any way.”

 

Sagittarius- The Solar Eclipse and New Moon this week will be in your House of Philosophy and the fiery sign of Leo, with both of them squaring expansive Jupiter behind the scenes in your House of Confinement. If you’ve been feeling strangely stuck or like something mysterious is holding you back, maybe it’s because you’ve never checked to see if that cell you’ve always felt jailed in is actually locked? Perhaps freedom has been within your power all along and you could seize it at anytime you choose? Imagine that!!! As beautiful Venus enters your House of Dreams and moves into a square with crotchety old Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth, the Goddess of Love should be giving you a very strong hint of what’s possible in terms of your happiness, especially as she aligns with Mars retrograde and makes you want to really scratch that itch to break out. As those anonymous voices of angst, The Who, once sang;

 

”Can you see the real me preacher?

Can you see the real me doctor?

Can you see the real me mother?

Can you see the real me?”

 

Capricorn- As Venus enters your House of Career and Public Image and moves into a square with Saturn retrograde in your sign, whatever is lacking in your life, from the great to the seemingly imperceptible, will become disturbingly clear to you. Of course the New Moon and Solar Eclipse this week in Leo will also have a lot to do with this sense of something missing, especially as they both explode in your House of Death and Transformation while forming a harsh angle to Jupiter in your House of Dreams. With 6 retrograde planets at this time, reflection not action should be your Zen right now, so take the time to consider how you have managed to end up in a different place emotionally than what you find yourself doing? Uranus going retrograde in your House of Creativity squaring Mars retrograde in your House of Self Worth will likely represent a catharsis of some sort; perhaps you’ll realize a choice in the past to be “different” was really a subconscious admittance of not being good enough? Who are you really, and does it currently feel like you’re on the right path to find out?

 

Aquarius- Mars retrograde in your sign aligning with Venus entering your House of Philosophy will likely find you contemplating the nature of love and relationships, in particular, why you don’t currently have a significant other? The New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Leo will be in your House of Relationships, and as it squares Jupiter in your House of Public Image it may finally dawn on you that the reason you’re single may just be because for the last little while you’ve been more interested in building a fan club than in really getting to know any one on a truly personal level. Saturn retrograde in your House of Secrets has been whispering in your ear for some time now that adulation should never be mistaken for love, yet at the same time Uranus in your House of Foundations has been insisting like a recalcitrant child that attention equals love. Hmmm. Which to believe? …With 6 retrograde planets in the heavens at this time, perhaps instead of being worried why you’re not famous yet, you should instead be asking yourself what the emotional difference is between a fb friend and a real friend?

 

Pisces-You may be on the verge of learning a valuable lesson right now regarding the nature of what you desire as opposed to what is meant to be. The New Moon and Solar Eclipse in your House of Routines is being squared by Jupiter in your House of Philosophy, highlighting the contradiction that often exists between what we want and what circumstances will allow, while at the same time Venus in your House of Shared Resources is aligning nicely with Mars retrograde behind the scenes, illustrating how going with the flow often aligns us with the true power in any given situation. It is hard to let things go if you’re always reminding yourself of what you don’t have, instead why don’t you try to consider what you do have and try not to take that for granted? Such a state of acceptance is ground zero for all the love in the Universe and, as the song goes, “All You Need is Love,”……bop, ba na na na…..
