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…..
