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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #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 #44 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/16-7/22, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/16-7/22, 2018

 

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

I will be using a term in this weeks horoscopes that some of you may not be familiar with, it’s called the Via Combusta or “Fiery Way” and it refers to an area in the chart that runs from 15 degrees Libra to 15 degrees Scorpio. As you can probably guess from the name, this stretch of the Zodiac is considered a no man’s land of sorts, where if things could possibly break bad they likely will, especially if it involves a transit of the Moon (which just happens to be there this week). In fact, among practitioners of Horary or “Predictive” Astrology, it is generally felt that if the Moon is transiting the Via Combusta it is usually best to simply trash the whole horoscope and try casting another one after the Moon has moved on.

I hope the inclusion of this interesting little tidbit will prove to be helpful, as some of you will end up being affected by this controversial transit over the coming week.

 

Aries- With Marsretrograde in your House of Dreams squaring Uranus in your House of Earnings, don’t plan on spending any money this week that you don’t actually have in your hand, not that you won’t eventually get it (by the time Venus aligns with Jupiter over the weekend you probably will) but cash flow problems could be a distinct problem at this time. Neptune retrograde in your House of What is Hidden and Pluto retrograde in your House of Career  will likely mean something you’ve been working on for a while could get delayed, which could actually turn out to be a blessing in disguise, so try not to lose your shit, okay?  The Lunar Arc through the Via Combusta might end up testing a friendship so try to walk away if someone just isn’t getting it, it’s their problem, not yours.

 

Taurus- As the Lunar Arc moves through your Houses of Work and Relationships it will be transiting the Via Combusta, so be careful in your interactions with co-workers, especially toward the end of the week when a Scorpio Moon conjuncts Jupiter; let any catty or snarky remarks slide, you’ll be glad you did, especially as Mars retrograde in your House of Career squares up with Uranus in your sign. Getting down in the mud with someone who’s just not worth it could very well have you biting off your nose to spite your face, so be careful. With Jupiter now direct in your House of Relationships and moving into alignment with Venus in your House of Romance, the weekend could end up dealing you a lucky encounter that will make up for any other crap that may happen this week. Keep your eyes open.

 

Gemini- Have you ever heard the phrase, “don’t shit where you eat?” It speaks directly to workplace romances so try to keep it in mind before you let anything happen between you and a co-worker, especially since the Lunar Arc will be transiting the Via Combusta and that can be trouble, particularly with Uranus behind the scenes in your chart squaring Mars retrograde. Make sure not to let a minor flirtation turn into an unhealthy attraction or, God forbid, the passion for an ill-fated affair just because you may be bored and need a little excitement. Neptune transiting your House of Public Image will make anything you do that’s even a little shady look infinitely worse, so don’t even think about being a home wrecker or sneaking around anywhere; people will hate you for it and you could get hurt.

 

Cancer- All you Cancer parents out there be on your toes. The Lunar Arc transiting the Via Combusta will be going through your Houses of Home and Children, where it will first square and then sextile Pluto in your House of Relationships. This could mean that you need to start treating your grown up baby like an adult if their age indicates that it’s time they started acting like one. Or perhaps you literally do have babies, if that’s the case then you may need to start laying down some rules (and penalties) if these little ones are needing some boundaries. Jupiter is also in your House of Children and as it aligns with Neptune in your House of Philosophy you will want to be both generous and helpful to your offspring, just make sure that when Jupiter aligns with Venus in Virgo over the weekend that you have not lost the farm due to your willingness to make everyday Christmas regardless if someone’s been good or not.

 

Leo- Try to be more sensitive around family members this week as the Lunar Arc transits the Via Combusta and your Houses of Communication and Home. Mars retrograde in your House of Relationships will be squaring Uranus in your House of Career, so if your frustrated for whatever reason at work try not to bring that anger back to the hacienda if you can. Particularly since Jupiter is also in your House of Home now and when that Via Combusta Moon hits the King of the Planets some real down and dirty exchanges could result. If you can manage to keep your frustration on the down low until Venus eventually advances through your House of Self Worth and aligns with Jupiter, then the charming side of you will be all anyone sees. Until then, use the Neptune transit through your House of Transformation to put up the best glamour you can.

 

Virgo- You try to be respectful, but if anyone violates your particular sense of decency then all bets are off, so just make sure that as the Lunar Arc transits the Via Combusta and your Houses of Self Worth and Communication that you don’t end up being an unwanted policeman in someone else’s district. Uranus in your House of Philosophy squaring off with Mars retrograde in your House of Routines could have you incensed at an unexpected mishap that you feel is the result of some unfairness either on the job or at home; it’s one thing to be annoyed, but please, try not to get emotional about it as you may end up making the situation worse instead of better. As Venus moves through your sign she will eventually align with Jupiter over the weekend, therefore, if you can keep your criticisms of a person or a situation within reasonable boundaries, you could find yourself the unexpected Master of Ceremonies aboard a happy ship sailing into next week.

 

Libra- Your natural sense of fairness could be challenged this week as the Lunar Arc traverses the Via Combusta that runs between your sign and your House of Self Worth. Jupiter is also in that House of Self Worth so try to remain patient if someone without a clue tries to act like they know it all. Uranus in your House of Transformation squaring Mars retrograde in your House of Creativity could mean that the Universe has sent you this buffoon as an unwitting teacher, so try not to shoot the messenger. Instead, use Venus moving through your House of Inner Realization as a meditation on patience as she aligns with Jupiter, then let the Goddess calm the savage beast, just like the maiden closing the jaws of the lion in the Tarot Card titled “Strength.”

 

Scorpio- Are you ready for an adventure? Specifically into the dark confines of your self where all the Scorpionic Mysteries reside? A word to the wise, it ain’t going to be like Harry Potter and the Basilisk, more like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the giant squid, just sayin’. As the Lunar Arc this week goes through the Via Combusta, it will pass over your horizon (otherwise known as your Rising Sign) and emerge into the light like a piece of abstract art emerging from your subconscious. Neptune in your House of Creativity should be right in time with this, especially if it turns out you’re into the art thing. Uranus in your House of Relationships squaring Mars retrograde in your House of Foundations will probably end up making your intimate encounters about as Freudian as they can get, as a result, be prepared for partners to be a little in awe of you, as few can dazzle others with their darker sides better than the Scorpion. Some may think this mysterious part of you that’s being exposed is sexy, but that sort will be a dime a dozen. With Jupiter in your sign now, choose to gravitate toward those who can appreciate your Mystical side; they’ll be the keepers.

 

Sagittarius- Who are you really? The answer provided by the Lunar Arc passing through the Via Combusta this week will probably surprise a few folks, as that stretch of Zodiac for you goes over the cusp between the House of Groups and the House of Confinement, or the face you let the world see as opposed to the face you only reveal when the Moon is Full and it’s the Witching time. You usually wear your mask well, but with Uranus in your House of Healing and Mars retrograde in your House of Communication, you may not be able to keep the hounds locked up now if someone crosses your path at the wrong time. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth might help to keep the beast in you at bay, but maybe whatever transpires will end up being about the victim’s lesson rather than the predator’s; with that said, anyone who messes with you now deserves whatever they get. Rrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!

 

Capricorn- This will likely be a testy week for you as Mars retrograde going through the sign of Aquarius and your House of Self Worth will be approaching an explosive square with Uranus in your House of Creativity. What others may be demanding of you now could turn out to be quite annoying, especially if you really need to be taking care of your own affairs. As Venus slowly moves into a lucky sextile with Jupiter in your House of Dreams, some of the demands being made of you now could inadvertently lead to the discovery of certain untapped resources within yourself that could turn out to be quite valuable. With Pluto and Saturn currently in your sign and both of them retrograde, it is a given that deep changes will be going on for you for a while, although occasionally you may get an unexpected break (like this week) and end up ahead of where you ordinarily would have been if you weren’t inconvenienced. The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.

 

Aquarius- With Mars retrograde in your sign this is probably not the time to be pushing forward with any new projects, but don’t let anyone try to tell you that. Uranus in your House of Symbolic Foundations will provide the ants in your pants, while Saturn retrograde behind the scenes will provide the frustration, all you need now is the proper illusion and you’ll be all set to make a wonderfully stupid mistake. Jupiter in your House of Career aligning with Neptune in your House of Self Worth could fit the bill, as their particular combination of ego and fog should have you over extending yourself in truly epic ways. Mercury inconjunct Pluto will have you wanting to get to the truth, though as the Moon transits the Via Combusta across your Mid-heaven you won’t want veracity as much as you want attention, so the week will likely end with a spectacle, let’s just hope it’s not you falling off the high-wire; although Venus aligning with Jupiter will act as a safety a net, so you should be okay in the end. Whew!!!

 

Pisces- Trust could be a big issue for you now as the Moon crosses the Via Combusta, which spans your Houses of Transformation and Philosophy respectively. Jupiter will be there too and as he aligns with Neptune in your sign it’s not that you’ll be suspicious of anyone, on the contrary, if anything you’ll be too trusting and that could lead to some real problems, especially if it involves other peoples money (or lack thereof). Mars retrograde in your House of Confinement will likely have you throwing caution to the wind, and as he squares Uranus in your House of Communication whatever you overlook now out of impatience will most certainly come back to bite you on the ass in the near future. Mercury inconjuncting Pluto as it approaches its station/retrograde phase could have you listening to the wrong people, therefore, try not to let someone who wants to purchase something of yours convince you it’ll be okay if they owe you for it.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #42 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/2-7/8, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/2-7/8, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! With 5 retrograde planets now in the heavens, plus Mercury in ego driven Leo squaring Jupiter and inconjuncting Neptune, get ready for some down and dirty (and unbelievably annoying) bickering this week between Rump and the Congress over trying to railroad a Supreme Court appointment through at the expense of our rights. It reminds me of the Charles Bukowski quote, “Arguing politics is like trying to screw a cat in the ass.” God help us all!!!

 

Aries- With retrograde planets currently in your Houses of Career, Transformation, Dreams, and Confinement, you are more dependent now on circumstances and what others need to do for you than ever before and it’s driving you crazy! Just make sure you don’t go crazy! This weeks Lunar Arc will be well aligned to Uranus for its duration, which could either be a blessing that will help you find your Zen, or else it could turn out to be a glorious but devastating bonfire as you angrily burn some bridges behind you like an angry Hun. If there is a lesson for you this week it would have to be along the lines of what the Byrds were trying to communicate when they put music to the verse from the Bible that goes, “There is a time for every purpose under heaven.” Amen.

 

Taurus- You are generally a patient sign, but events this week will likely put even your inherent placidity to the test. The illusion of believing you can control what others do will come up for some major review now as well, as both Mars and Jupiter retrograde challenge Mercury as the Messenger Planet travels through the impetuous sign of Leo assuming his opinions are law, or at least unquestionable. Uranus in your sign aligning with the Lunar Arc all week will have you asking and likely answering your own questions, especially if you don’t like the answers that the people who are causing the problems are trying to pawn off on you. If there is one thing to keep in mind this week it is this;

 

God grant me the serenity

To accept the things I cannot change;

Courage to change the things I can;

And wisdom to know the difference.

 

Gemini- As a mutable air sign you can always envision the possibilities in any given situation, however, where you are often lacking is in thinking through the specifics and/or considering the feelings of those you expect to help you. With retrograde planets this week in your Houses of Career, Philosophy, Transformation, and Routines, this is not a time to be pushing the envelope no matter how many ants are in your pants making you want to dance! Mercury and Mars are opposing each other on the Leo/Aquarius axis with both in turn at harsh angles to Jupiter retrograde in humorless Scorpio, meaning don’t try to run any bullshit up the flagpole about how you’re so concerned with others welfare, everyone knows you’re trying to blow smoke up their ass and they may just decide to mess with you for spite. A word to the wise, “Tell the truth, it’s the easiest thing to remember.”

 

Cancer- If you remember the old Popeye cartoons it was usually necessary for him to first get pretty beaten up by Bluto before he would then pull out his spinach and kick some serious butt. As the Sun passes through your sign and trines Neptune in your House of Philosophy and Jupiter in your House of Creativity, the time for taking shit from people along with thinking less of yourself or your ability to change your circumstances is rapidly coming to an end. Even though there are 5 retrograde planets now, the time is nevertheless ripe for strategizing about what you need to do and who you need to be to do it. The Lunar Arc all week will be aligned nicely with Uranus first, then Mars, then Uranus again, so dare to think that you deserve that gold ring you’ve been dreaming of, you might just surprise yourself and end up getting it in the not too distant future.

 

Leo- With both Mercury and Venus in your sign you can be quite the charmer now, and along with Mars retrograde in your House of Relationships you might just be able to convince a stubborn person in your life to relax and consider trying things your way. A family responsibility may be weighing heavily on you now, so try to share what you’re feeling with a loved one. With the Sun in Cancer behind the scenes aligning with Neptune in your House of Death and Transformation, perhaps your worries for someone close are actually because of your own deep seeded fears and not because anything is really wrong. Saturn retrograde in your House of Work in harmonious aspect to Uranus in your House of Career might just result in an older person on the job taking you under their wing. This could be just the break you need!

 

Virgo- There are 5 retrograde planets now in your Houses of Work, Relationships, Creativity, and Communications, so the time is ripe to review where you are, who you’re with, where’s it going, and what needs to be fixed? The answers may not be apparent to any of these questions just yet, but they do need to be asked and you do need to be honest with yourself. Neptune retrograde aligning with Jupiter retrograde will help you to be forgiving of yourself and others if things haven’t quite worked out the way you’d hoped, just make sure you’re not blaming yourself for something that might have resulted from someone else’s lack of interest, commitment, tolerance, or whatever. The last thing the world needs is another self-critical Virgin, really! Uranus in your House of Philosophy aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity may be about either an older or younger person needing a little guidance from you. Trust that you have what they need and be generous with your time, you could make a big difference in this person’s life.

 

Libra- A Grand Trine this week between the Sun, Jupiter retrograde and Neptune retrograde in your Houses of Career, Earnings, and Work respectively would seem to be pointing to a resurrection of sorts if things have been slow. Add to this Pluto and Saturn in your House of Symbolic Foundations and Uranus in your House of Transformation and we’re talking about a lucky break, quick turnaround, or perhaps just managing to be in the right place at the right time. Whatever you’ve been working on creatively, Mercury in theatrical Leo opposing Mars retrograde in your House of Creativity could very well suggest you may be on to something that’s a lot bigger than you realize, the caveat though is that it’s not quite the right time yet to show it to the world. In the meantime, make sure to keep plugging away at it so you will be ready when opportunity does come knocking, and it will!

 

Scorpio- With Jupiter retrograde, the Sun, and Neptune retrograde forming a Grand Trine now you are probably chomping at the bit to move forward in your career, but the Universe is saying, “not so fast,” as Mars retrograde in your House of Foundations engages in a tug of war with Mercury in Leo transiting through your House of Career. Pluto retrograde in your House of Foundations could be the reason some news you’re waiting for is delayed, however, with Uranus in your House of Relationships aspecting Saturn retrograde this communication will probably come when you least expect it and could contain much better news than you had originally hoped for. As the song goes, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try, sometimes, you get what you need.”

 

Sagittarius- The Sun is transiting through your House of Transformation and forming a Grand Water Trine with both Jupiter and Neptune retrograde, which will probably find you feeling a flood of emotions as the health of a loved one could end up taking a turn for the worst. A lot could fall on your shoulders because of this with Uranus in your House of Routines aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth, just don’t try to do everything by yourself if there are other family members in the vicinity who can pitch in. In others words, if you can’t save the world then who will save you if you go down? Mercury in your House of Philosophy could have you searching for answers to a question that may be destined to remain a mystery for the time being, as Mars retrograde in your House of Communication will probably find you leaving messages for someone in power that just won’t be answered.

 

Capricorn- If you feel an unexpected pinch in a vulnerable place on your body sometime this week, it could be one of Cupid’s arrows finding its mark. The Sun in your House of Relationships is forming a Grand Water Trine with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Friends and Neptune retrograde in your House of Communication, meaning that someone close by (perhaps an associate at work?) could possibly be harboring secret feelings for you and they just might be ready to declare themselves. Uranus in your House of Romance squaring a Mercury/Mars opposition in your Houses of Intimacy and Self Worth respectively will no doubt have you feeling both flattered and embarrassed by the attentions of this new suitor, however, be careful not to let the situation gain any traction if you feel it might end up ruining another scenario that is much more valuable to you. In other words, don’t shit where you eat!

 

Aquarius- Mars retrograde in your sign opposing Mercury in Leo in your House of Relationships could see you having a serious disagreement this week, either with a loved one or a co-worker. The fact that Uranus is squaring the Mars/Mercury aspect as well as aligning with Saturn retrograde behind the scenes, could also mean that this confrontation really shouldn’t be a surprise. In fact, it’s likely based on a power struggle that has been simmering under the surface for a while. With the Sun passing through your House of Work and forming a Grand Water Trine with both Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career and Neptune retrograde in your House of Earnings, you could get quite frustrated about this situation. Just be careful that with Pluto retrograde behind the scenes igniting that Grand Trine that you don’t let the floodgates open and end up expressing all your residual anger over this particular incident at an inopportune moment. In other words, try not to kill a fly with a howitzer over this.

 

Pisces- Try not to drive yourself crazy this week with attempting to guess what an employer needs just because you’re too shy or scared to ask them. Mars retrograde behind the scenes opposing Mercury in your House of Daily Routines are both being squared by Uranus in your House of Communications, which could indicate that hesitating to speak openly with this person about something you’re not sure about could draw a worse reaction from them because your silence might make them think that you’re trying to conceal something. Don’t risk looking dishonest to avoid being embarrassed; if it’s something they should know let them realize they can trust you by telling them. On the other hand, if your boss has been increasing your responsibilities and not compensating you for your extra work, realize that the price of your embarrassment to ask for a raise will pay back important dividends by letting you know whether or not you’re working for someone you can trust.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #28 Weekly Horoscopes for 3/19-3/25 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 3/19 – 3/25, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! We have selected the 3 winners for the St. Patrick’s Day Raffle. If you entered make sure to check your email to see if you are going to be receiving a Witchy Prosperity Package courtesy of the lovely and powerful “MagickalLuna.”

Thanks to everyone who participated! Both Mrs. Saturn and I hope you all had a Happy Saint Patty’s Day. “Erin go bragh.”

Aries- The Sun enters your sign this week where it will immediately be confronted by Mars and Saturn (aka “The Malefics”). Pay careful attention to your frustration levels now as the archetypal optimist and skeptic within you try to establish their respective philosophies. Mercury and Venus are also in your sign this week with the former going station/retrograde and the later squaring Pluto, which could lead to some very testy confrontations if you feel you are being denied what you believe you have earned. Neptune will also be a culprit for you this week, first when it combines with a Taurus Moon to remind you of what you don’t have and secondly when it aligns with a Cancer Moon to help you feel angry about it. Mr. Saturn usually doesn’t recommend drinking alone, but it might be a better idea than killing someone.

 

Taurus- As Mercury goes station/retrograde for you behind the scenes and falls just short of a square with Pluto, you could be remembering someone from the past and a misunderstanding you both had. Neptune aligning with the Moon twice this week (first in your sign and then later on in Cancer) could have you feeling sentimental about this situation as you ponder how things might have gone differently. Let Jupiter Retrograde aligning with Pluto remind you that in order to have become who you are now, things back then played out exactly as they were meant to. As the Sun passes behind the scenes for you and squares Mars in your House of Philosophy, try to take solace in making a commitment to move on and not make the same mistakes twice.

 

Gemini- When the Sun enters your House of Dreams in the middle of the week it will be rapidly approaching squares to both Mars and Saturn, meaning that for every kilowatt of energy you spend fantasizing, an exponentially larger force will be exerting the realization of responsibility upon you. Mercury going station/retrograde in Aries would suggest that the more carefully you’re willing to review what your next move should be, the more likely that Jupiter Retrograde aligning with Pluto will help you to discover some new resources you may have previously overlooked. Neptune conversing this week with both the Moon in Taurus and the Moon in Cancer will be all about listening to your intuition. To illustrate this, Mr. Saturn would add a Taoist quote he loves, “Strength knows how to bide its time, while weakness feels a need to act.”

 

Cancer- The Sun enters your House of Public Image this week to join Mercury Retrograde, Venus, and Uranus so be prepared for others to start looking at you differently. No, you won’t be having a zit outbreak or a succession of bad hair days, it’ll be more like the person you always knew you could be will suddenly be there for everyone to see. A life change that you’ve been working on behind the scenes for awhile is about to come to fruition, so be sure to pinch yourself and start realizing that someday is now! With Jupiter Retrograde aligning with Pluto take stock of all you’ve learned over the past months while you were struggling to evolve with your circumstances and then clearly realize that you are a warrior and you have prevailed. It would also be a good idea to remember who was there for you and who wasn’t through your various initiations and then make sure you dole out your extremely valuable friendship accordingly.

 

Leo- As the Sun enters your House of Philosophy and approaches the Spring Equinox, be willing to take on whatever you feel is holding you back rather than just complaining about it as though it were an irrefutable natural law. With Mercury now in retrograde in that same Philosophical House, this would be a perfect time to question everything you believe, especially if those beliefs are not making you happy. Likewise, Jupiter Retrograde in your House of Symbolic Foundations moving closer to Pluto could help you realize that you’ve only misplaced something you thought was lost; like your unique individuality. Be open this week as Neptune aligns with the Moon in both Taurus and Cancer, you could find yourself being visited again by an artistic inspiration you haven’t felt in a long time. You don’t have to do a Gauguin, but you should start making time to nurture your innate creativity.

 

Virgo- When the Sun enters your House of Death and Transformation this week that will make 4 major planets currently in that House for you. One of them will be Mercury Retrograde, another will be the Sun squaring Mars and Saturn in your House of Creativity, while the third will be Venus, who in turn will be flirting with the 4th , that wild and crazy guy Uranus. At this point if you’re not willing to change something in your life, you could inadvertently be asking to have a brick fall out of the sky and hit you in the head. Ouch!!! In other words, things can’t (and won’t) stay the same. If romance has been lacking in your relationship then let Neptune help you out as he first aspects the Moon in Taurus and then the Moon in Cancer. If you’re stuck in a boring job let Jupiter Retrograde and Pluto in your House of Creativity help you re-do that resume, or perhaps start acting on an idea you’ve been harboring that’s all dressed up with no place to go. In short, you can’t go wrong if you commit to defining this week with a verb (whatever that may mean to you).

 

Libra- This week you have 4 planets in your House of Relationships squaring 3 planets in your House of Home and Family. On the relationship side there is the Sun, Mercury Retrograde, Venus, and Uranus, while at home you have Pluto, Saturn, and Mars. Mr. Saturn would venture to say that some serious life changes have either served to significantly strengthen a relationship or else sever it (perhaps permanently). Either way you have learned the power of sacrifice so that now you understand the true meaning of love is forgiveness. Congratulations, this new sense of humility you have developed (which was probably discovering that you don’t need to be right all the time) will serve you very well when this whirlwind period is over. Rest assured that all is as it should be as Jupiter Retrograde in your House of Self Worth prepares the student within you so the teacher within you can appear.

 

Scorpio- With Pluto, Saturn, and Mars in your House of Communication squaring the Sun, Mercury Retrograde, Venus, and Uranus in your House of Work and Routines, a lot is being expected of you now and those who want something have no problem letting you know about it. Of course your control oriented nature wants to be all things to all people, yet the power of being able to say “no” at this time could be what prevents you from being taken away in a straight jacket. Neptune in your House of Creativity will motivate you to be helpful in novel ways, just make sure you prioritize those who are worth your time and those who aren’t. Your sign rules sinners and saints, try to refrain from being the later to save the former.

 

Sagittarius- In the middle of the week the Sun will enter the sign of Aries and join Mercury Retrograde, Venus, and Uranus in your House of Creativity, which is a lot of dynamic energy at your disposal. Now the question is, where should you direct it? Pluto, Saturn, and Mars are all in your House of Self Worth so how about asking yourself (and perhaps even your employers) what am I worth and if I’m not getting that, why not? An answer to this question could be revealed on the home front as Neptune shows how you can be overly accommodating to the demands of others while ignoring your own needs. Mr. Saturn would suggest you eventually go to therapy about this aspect of your character, but for now how about pushing for a promotion or even looking for another job?

 

Capricorn- Having Pluto, Saturn, and Mars all in your sign now will make you nothing if not somewhat dissatisfied, just like having the Sun, Mercury Retrograde, Venus, and Uranus all in your House of Symbolic Foundations right now will make you nothing if not impetuous; see the problem? Of course Neptune in your House of Communication early in the week will help you overlook what you’d prefer not to see, especially as it aspects the Lunar Arc moving through your Houses of Creativity, and Work. The buck will stop though in your House of Dreams when Jupiter Retrograde aspects Pluto and you are forced to re-evaluate your current position in regards to where you had planned to be when you started this journey you are presently on. As a now departed Capricorn once sang, “Watch the ripples change their size but never leave the stream.”

 

Aquarius- Ruled by both Saturn and Uranus each of you Water Bearers has the potential to be either a dictator or a rebel depending on the circumstances. Such extremism is probably most true for you right now with Saturn, Pluto, and Mars behind the scenes squaring the Sun, Mercury Retrograde, Venus, and Uranus all in your House of Communication. As a result, your karmic lesson at this time could very well be that the more obsessed you are with accomplishing something (whatever that may be) the more you probably feel subconsciously that you are not good enough for it. Of course you will reject this suggestion outright, probably even laugh at it, but the simple fact is that pathological people usually have no idea they are pathological. And since you Aquarians take special pride in believing that you know yourselves better than any other sign, I think it would be best to stop here.

 

Pisces- If dreams are about looking up at a mountaintop then accomplishments are about looking down from one. This has never been truer than now as Saturn, Pluto, and Mars in your House of Dreams watch you make the arduous climb toward their exalted perch, while at the same time Mercury Retrograde and Uranus in your House of Self Worth complain over the fact that you’re not there yet. At this point enter Neptune, the planet of dreams (and your ruler), which is currently in your sign. Be careful not to let your impatience spin excuses that sound practical but would essentially add up to you either chickening out or blaming circumstances for making things too hard. A word to the wise, listen to Jupiter Retrograde in your House of Philosophy as he sings you a little song, “The harder they come, the harder they fall, one and all…..one and all.”

Good Luck to you all!!!

 

Aries- Whatever it is you may want there is a way to get it and a way not to get it. Mercury and Venus in your sign squaring Saturn in your House of Career will be staging this debate as the week unfolds, therefore, consider your career choices wisely; not only who you cultivate but who you annoy as well. As Mars slowly gets ready to pass from Sagittarius to Capricorn and enter into a conjunction with Saturn by the end of the month, realize that your conduct now could either establish a solid foundation for your future or else stop you in your tracks next month.

 

Taurus- As the New Moon in Pisces approaches you are keenly aware of your emotional needs as well as how these desires are not being met. It is important though for you to be honest with yourself and realize that the type of association you’re looking for can only be the result of time and commitment, which you will be reminded of as Mars enters Capricorn to join Saturn and Pluto at exactly the same time as the new Moon dawns in Pisces and trines Jupiter in your house of Relationships. If you don’t have “The” Love of your life yet, at least try to enjoy the love that already surrounds you, of which there is plenty from both friends and family.

 

Gemini- Make sure that you look before you leap this week as your legendary Gemini impulsiveness could find you caught in a free fall without a parachute. Whatever you expect from others, either in your close relationships or on the job, anything that is spoken about now is going to require a thorough process before it will bear fruit. Mars and Uranus in aspect to start the week will rile you up, but by the weekend when Mars enters Capricorn to join Saturn and Pluto the natural order of things will already have taken over and no amount of emotionalism spurred on by The Sun aligning with Jupiter will change anything. Try to be patient, or at least try not to shoot yourself in the foot.

 

Cancer- Mars aligning with Uranus to start the week will bring a fast and furious barrage of challenges and the Sun moving into aspect with Jupiter could lead to some intense feelings about what’s going on. On the other hand, Mercury and Venus in Aries should make you quick on your feet and give you the gift of gab as you manage to negotiate yourself through this maze of difficulties. By the time the weekend rolls around Mars, Saturn, and Pluto will all be in your House of Relationships and as they alternate aligning with Neptune in your House of Philosophy, make sure you take the time to appreciate all the love you have in your life. No matter how tough things may seem, you are not alone. Fight the good fight and remember, “A life well loved is a life well lived.”

 

Leo- With Mercury and Venus now in Aries and squaring Saturn in your House of Work, this is the time for you to get moving out of a dead end job! Jupiter retrograde coming into alignment with Pluto is reminding you that you have already paid your dues in the trenches and now it’s time to move on to something bigger and better. The New Moon in your House of Death and Transformation has already started sketching out some new scenarios in your imagination as to what your future could look like with a career makeover, all that remains now is for you to get inspired and start sending out those applications and resumes.

 

Virgo- You have spent a while now trying to build up a creative project and now you’re in the home stretch. The last hurdle to overcome is to get out there and promote what you’re doing. Mercury and Venus squaring Saturn in your House of Creativity are chomping at the bit to spread the word so what are you waiting for? Let those Chatty Kathy’s out of the corral so they can schmooze up the countryside. On another note, the New Moon in your House of Relationships aligning with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Communications could see a break through in a stalemate that has been going on between you and a partner. The connection between the two of you was never really threatened, it was just that each of you were changing (for the better) and now you’ve come around that learning curve. Why not celebrate!

 

Libra- You have been experiencing the ground shifting underneath your feet for a while now, perhaps the time has come for you to pull a “Network” and go to your window, open it up, and shout, “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it anymore!” Mercury and Venus in your House of Relationships squaring Saturn (and very soon Mars) in your House of Symbolic Foundations would indicate it’s no longer about hoping the current will carry you along, instead you need to start paddling ferociously toward the challenges that are waiting for you like a gang of bullies in the schoolyard. Just make a commitment to yourself that no one is getting your lunch money, no matter what! The New Moon in Pisces aligning with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Self Worth should help you find that inspiration you need to keep going. As they used to say in the 60’s, “Keep the Faith, Baby.”

 

Scorpio- Mercury and Venus in your House of Work and Routines should guarantee a busy week, while Saturn in your House of Communication should provide you with the vision and authority to effectively delegate whatever tasks may be too much for you to handle. On the other hand, Mars in Sagittarius aligning with Uranus in Aries could activate your natural control issues and make you want to instead try and do everything yourself. When Mars enters Capricorn later in the week and approaches a conjunction with Saturn, you will no doubt see the error in your judgment and reconsider asking for help. As the New Moon comes into aspect with Jupiter retrograde over the weekend this help could likely arrive as a very timely payback for a good deed you performed in the past. What goes around comes around so enjoy it.

 

Sagittarius- Mars should be leaving your sign with a bang this week as it trines Uranus in your House of Fun and Creativity. Enjoy the moment while you can because Mars will have to put on the breaks almost immediately afterwards as it enters Capricorn and comes right up on the bumper of Mr. Saturn. Of course with Mercury and Venus already in your House of Fun and both of them squaring Saturn you’ll probably be tempted to keep pushing your agenda when in fact you should be getting down to business and following the rules. A word to the wise, Jupiter retrograde aligning with the New Moon and moving ever closer to Pluto should bring you all the resources you need, but only if you’re willing to listen to what the man say’s and walk the straight and narrow. This is not the time to bite off your nose to spite your face.

 

Capricorn- By the end of this week you will have Pluto, Saturn, and Mars all in your sign. This is a notable trio that should give you some real gravitas in whatever situations you may find yourself. In addition to these heavy hitters you will also have a beneficial placement of Neptune in your House of Communication, which will no doubt allow you to be the perfect example of being able to talk softly because you have a big stick. Unfortunately though you may have to use that stick on the home front as Mercury and Venus in Aries could motivate a partner or relative to get a little too pushy for your liking. Jupiter retrograde backing up toward Pluto is all about you remembering to value yourself, so don’t spare the discipline when it comes to anyone disrespecting you.

 

Aquarius- You are undergoing a lot of renovation behind the scenes as Saturn, Pluto, and Mars get to work tearing your ego down to the studs. Neptune in your House of Self Worth could either facilitate this process toward spiritual growth, or else resist it causing you to become lost in an enchanted forest of ego. Either way the New Moon in that same House of Self Worth aligning with Jupiter in your House of Public Image will have you feeling a lot more emotional than usual. Mercury and Venus in your House of Communication will in turn have you talking up a storm, the question is will you be whining and making excuses or promoting solutions? At this point we’re back again to Saturn, Pluto, and Mars behind the scenes, so what other choice do you have except to let the renovation proceed?

 

Pisces- A weak person will let their difficulties define them, while a strong person will redefine him or herself in order to prevail over their circumstances. With Mercury and Venus in your House of Self Worth squaring Saturn (and soon Mars) in your House of Dreams, you are in just such a situation, so what are you going to do? The New Moon in your sign this week will trine Jupiter as the the King of the Planets retrogrades toward Pluto, meaning that the real issue for you now is not about failure or success, rather it is about the ability to see yourself as you truly are and realize the challenges of life are about your evolution and not your status. A Pisces Native from the past once said, “It is not those who can inflict the most, but those who can suffer the most who will win.”

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

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

 

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The first way is “me,”

The second, “you,” the third, “we,”

The fourth, “what to do?”

 

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

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

“Regret is fear of

What needs to be done next placed

In the wrong context”

 

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

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

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #24 Weekly Horoscopes for 2/19-2/25, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 2/19- 2/25, 2018

 

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

 

Aries- With a whole cluster of planets gathered together behind the scenes for you in the mutable and highly sensitive sign of Pisces, you are experiencing a rare moment of indecision in your usual full steam ahead mind set. This is because Mars in your House of Philosophy has you feeling restless and wanting to bust out of your daily routine, while Saturn and Pluto in your House of Career are both reminding you to keep your nose to the grindstone. I think your lesson at this time is not based on either/or but rather learning how to be patient and accepting that what’s in front of you now is both what needs to be done and the way it’s supposed to be.

Taurus- The conflict that exists for you now is between what is expected of you by others versus what you’d really like to do. This could get tricky because some of the things that others expect of you are actually in your best interests, yet it seems as if you are always doing something for somebody else and right now you’re feeling a real urge to bust out and do you. Let Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy guide you in regards to what is really in your best interests and try to re-evaluate where your fear of being taken advantage of really comes from. Perhaps your approval issues are to blame rather than anyone trying to dominate you?

Gemini- As a mutable Air Sign you are a creature of constantly evolving ideas, meaning that you are always changing your mind and weighing the validity of one concept against another. What will make this week different though is that this won’t be a time of shifting ideas, but rather one of changing emotions. Your partner will likely end up bearing the brunt of this transformation, though it’s important for you to keep in mind that your expectations and judgments of this person might not be the real problem. Perhaps the situation is really a case of you projecting your insecurities onto them, meaning the time has come to realize that if you’re expecting them to make you feel safe, then it’s really about your lack of confidence rather than their lack of success.

Cancer- Your process is to obsess on any problem that may be facing you until it rises to monumental proportions in your mind and totally stresses you out. At that point all that bottled up energy will then explode into a burst of creative energy that will take care of whatever it may have been. Sound exhausting? It is. If you consider yourself a Spiritual person then this week could be the time you finally see this fight or flight pattern you create for yourself for precisely what it is, meaning that the real adversary here is not life in general but you. A partner could help you with this realization if for once you’d just listen to them and trust that when they suggest you calm down they are not criticizing you.

Leo- Believe it or not this could be a time of genuine mystical revelation if you could just embrace the profundity of your sign’s fixed nature instead of allowing its rigidity to limit what you think is possible. No one would ever call a Lion a cowardly animal, so what is your problem with doing something different in a particular situation if it has been making you unhappy for a long time? Try to realize that constantly complaining about your circumstances and then not taking action is a subtle and insidious path to disempower by indirectly convincing yourself the problem is insurmountable. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

“Unwillingness to

Try will always prove something

Is impossible”

Virgo- This is a time of very serious challenges for you, however, by the same token it can also be a time of great advances in your personal development. Motivation to face certain aspects of yourself that need to change could come from a partner who is refusing to face similar work they need to do for themselves. This type of symbiosis is what truly defines a soul mate, so instead of blaming this person for their faults and using that as an excuse, instead try to embrace your shortcomings and see how the other person reacts. Either you will transcend your limitations together or a long-standing karmic chain could be broken setting you both free to change your destiny as individuals. I know this sounds all New Agey, but the power of love is based on this exact kind of synthesis or division, which in Ancient times was referred to as “Alchemy.”

Libra- The Mind-Body Connection is going to come up big time for you this week with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Neptune all in your House of Health squaring Mars in your House of Thinking. Pay attention to your stress levels and try not to sweat the small stuff. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Symbolic Foundations are likely going to make it feel like the Earth is shifting under your feet and the tendency will be to resist, creating a great deal of pressure that could be very exhausting. It is important at this time to realize that the world is not against you, rather the time has come for you to see what you’re made of in order to embrace and utilize your true potential. Understand that great challenges await those who are destined to succeed. In the words of Maximus from “Gladiator”, “What we do now echoes in eternity!”

Scorpio- With Mars in your House of Self Worth squaring a whole bunch of planets in your House of Creativity you are driven at this time toward finding deep fulfillment. If it’s in the emotional realm you could be feeling very hot to trot and find yourself seriously driven to fall in love (or at least into lust). If it’s in the material realm then it will be all about money for you and establishing some real security for the future. As a result, Saturn and Pluto in your House of Communication and Thinking will make this a time of some radical theoretical shifts in how you think about life and what you need from it, while Jupiter in your sign will motivate you to master your environment or perhaps even another person as the case may be. Either way, this is a time when you will be embracing Yin/Yang, Jekyll and Hyde, and even Life and Death within yourself and the surrounding world in order to be all you can be.

Sagittarius- This is it! With Mars in your sign squaring the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Neptune all in Pisces and your House of Symbolic foundations and Family, the time has come for you to confront just how much you are controlled by either your family or some other group dynamic that you’re convinced determines who you are. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth in turn represent the struggle of your destiny trying to form as you first reject what you are not in order to discover what you are. Jupiter behind the scenes in the transformational sign of Scorpio would then represent the irresistible forces of karma driving you to this ultimate confrontation with what you see in the mirror. Of course the mythical and archetypal aspects of this inner struggle probably have you feeling utterly confused, which should then set the stage for unpredictable Uranus in your House of Creativity to motivate you to do something totally liberating! Go for it!!!

Capricorn- With Jupiter in your House of Groups and Dreams aligning with Pluto and Saturn in your House of Self, you will likely appear to others to be totally clear on where it is you’re going. On the other hand, with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Thinking squaring Mars behind the scenes, you are actually quite confused and longing for a sense of peace and stability. In addition, you could be experiencing certain psychic insights that are no doubt compelling but also seem to have no realistic context. Not a good place for a formidable Earth sign like yourself to be, but not a bad place either as your evolutionary clock is ticking and you are desperately in need of some new ideas about the nature of so-called “Reality.” When the student is ready the teacher appears, which in this case is crazy ol’ Uranus in your House of Symbolic Foundations cryptically repeating, “The Tao that can be explained is not the real Tao. Inscrutable? Yes. Hopeless? No. Keep the faith, baby.

Aquarius- Your dream is to be loved in a simple and profound way without the pettiness of human foibles to taint the picture. Really? Grow up! It is precisely the imperfections of our humanity that define the very nature of love, for without our peccadillos and high crimes virtues such as compassion, understanding, and ultimately forgiveness all become impossible because we would have no reason to do any of those things. Enlightenment is not an intellectual exercise and with a cluster of Piscean planets in your House of Self Worth you might actually for once be in a place to truly understand this, like getting caught in the rain without an umbrella in order to finally realize you won’t melt if you get wet.

Pisces- As a sign ruled by Neptune you certainly have the propensity to gain a very profound level of enlightenment, likewise you also have the potential to get entirely immersed in your illusions as if you were lost in a hall of mirrors at a carnival. You are like a sponge now as you deeply experience some very profound insights, although if anyone asked you would probably say that you’re not quite sure what the truth is about anything. Perfect answer! This is a time to look, listen, and learn, not to act; at least not yet. The time for action will reveal itself to you like an approaching swell reveals itself to a surfer. To start paddling too soon would likely end in a wipe-out, but to wait for the proper moment could result in a ride that could seem like an endless summer. This is your time now, to trust that is to trust yourself.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #23 Weekly Horoscopes for 2/12-2/18, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 2/12 – 2/18, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Valentine’s Day is this week so Mr. Saturn is going to talk exclusively on the subject everyone always wants to know about, namely, Love… <3… although be forewarned, what follows is gonna be REAL…

 

The Gardener

Love from the past

Is a dry, dead rose

Pressed and flat

In a book of poems

 

Hopeful Love

Is a pretty bouquet

To a maiden from her suitor

In a romantic play

 

But the Love before us

Is there in the dirt

To be tilled by the gardener

Who believes in the work“

 

Aries- If you’re in a committed relationship explain to your partner what you’re really feeling instead of just doing what you want and then expecting to win the argument afterwards, even if revealing your doubts makes you a little uncomfortable (especially if it makes you uncomfortable). If you’re single decide what the scariest thing about a relationship is for you, because if you think you’re ready for one it’s going to be that deep down, hidden fear you’re harboring that will be the gate keeper.

Taurus- If you have a partner make sure that they are valuing you as much as you are enamored of them. In addition, be careful of a stale relationship turning into a power play when all you really need to do is spice it up a bit. If you’re single, take a moment to write down all your good qualities and then realize that any potential partner who doesn’t recognize you have these attributes certainly isn’t worth your time.

Gemini- Pay attention to how you and a partner are communicating. Make sure that the agreeableness of your significant other isn’t just a way of disengaging and letting you believe what you want to. You single twins will have that special something going on right now, just pay attention not to let a charming someone sneak off with the family jewels.

Cancer- If partners agree on everything then one of them is redundant. Relax some of your control issues and let the differences between you and your significant other fuel a loving evolution of your relationship; you’ll be glad you did!!! Likewise, you single crabs need to step out of your comfort zones and be willing to let a relationship develop. Don’t make excuses that you’re too busy; you know there’s no way work is more important that falling in love.

Leo- You could be feeling more amorous than you have in a while so let your partner know it. Don’t let yourself be inhibited by their shyness; they might need your leadership skills on this one. You single Lions could be just as happy making love to either an audience or an admirer, decide which one floats your boat and then be clear about it so no one gets hurt.

Virgo- If the relationship with your significant other has been complicated lately, then why don’t you hide out together in the bedroom for a day or so? After all, relationships rarely get to that “complicated” place if a committed couple is having a lot of sex…just sayin’. Meanwhile, you single Virgins should stop looking at love as something to be attained with definite rules to get there. Ever hear the song “Fooled Around and Fell in Love?”

Libra- No matter if you’re attached or single, how you feel about yourself right now is making all the difference. Creativity and Love are strongly related for you at this time, so if you’re feeling that your worldly endeavors are unsatisfying you could appear either mysteriously conflicted to a partner, or distant and unavailable to any potential suitors. Either way, for the present you should value an emotional connection over any material accomplishment, you’ll be much better off in the long run.

Scorpio- If you’re in a relationship then make sure you do something really special this week for Valentine’s and don’t cut any corners, your partner will love it! If you’re single then love right now could be about either something tangible or something spiritual. For instance, you could find out that someone whom you secretly admire is also quite smitten with you, or else you might feel inspired to create something artistic that will help you work out a mystery within yourself. Either way, Cupid’s arrow will hit something.

Sagittarius- If you’re in a relationship think carefully before bringing up the subject of living together. What you feel for a special person could turn into some unexpected animosity when they’re suddenly with you all the time and start to cramp your style regarding some personal habits you have no intention of changing. If you’re single stop having a fantasy you’ll meet someone if you really don’t make any effort to connect with new people (hiding in a group of friends for safety whenever you’re out doesn’t count).

Capricorn- If you’re in a relationship where is it going? Or, more importantly, where do you want it to go? Things may currently seem too chaotic to risk taking that next step with a serious partner, yet one of the tests of Love is if it can survive such challenges. You single Goats may not realize how all this catharsis you’ve been experiencing recently is actually making you quite a hottie. There’s more than one person out there who would be willing to make it all about you. Of course that’s a compliment, but be careful just the same.

Aquarius- Have you been paying enough attention to your partner lately? On the other hand, if you’ve been doting on them is that about their need or your insecurity? Try to see the person in your life now as a specific individual and not an abstract extension of yourself. You single Water Bearers may be promoting this conquering hero image, yet a person who could love you would like to be privy to the worried child you sleep alone with at night. Are you willing to be truly vulnerable without a disclaimer?

Pisces- You attached Fishes need to be careful not to put a partner on a pedestal. With illusory Neptune in your sign what you’re not seeing is that you may be dissing yourself rather than complimenting someone else. Single Fish will soon be in season, so be careful not too swim in shallow waters or automatically go after anything shiny that’s dangled in front of you. It’s entirely possible you could end up as a fillet for some predator who is only out for sport.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #22 Weekly Horoscopes for 2/5-2/11, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes  for 2/5 – 2/11, 2018

 

 Hi kids! Glad to see you back at Mr. Saturn’s Stars.

 

“I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope

For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without

love

For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet

faith

But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.”

-T.S. Eliot

 

Aries- The Lunar Arc for this week could bring you some very valuable lessons about relationships that you’re convinced you’ve already learned. You hard charging Rams don’t like to reflect too much or linger any longer than you have to, which means you probably won’t get it this time around either.  The Moon  squaring Pluto in your House of Relationships will likely make you unable to accept a certain situation so that you’ll probably end up feeling unfulfilled and restricted by it. A conjunction with Jupiter in your House of Transformation will then make you feel a need to resist being controlled at all costs. The Moon conjunct Mars in your House of Philosophy will next allow you to justify running away or rebelling, but then successive conjunctions of the Moon with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Public Image and Career will leave you feel lonely and misunderstood. At this point you’ll  probably convince yourself that it’s an either/or situation between a relationship and a career so that  distracting yourself through work will seem like the only justifiable solution for you to be you. While all this is going on The Sun, Venus, and Mercury will all be in your House of Groups and aligning nicely with Uranus in your sign, meaning that as you sabotage a close relationship with your insecurity, your public image will appear to be that of a charismatic and free spirit; talk about parallel universes! Mr. Saturn’s shaking his head; he’s got nothing on this one.

Taurus- This is a time when you need to consciously take control of the circumstances in your life. The Sun, Mercury, and Venus are all in your House of Career and Public Image and they all more or less square Jupiter in your House of Partnerships. This means don’t be aftraid to ask people for what you want. Don’t wait to be given a gift if it’s something you deserve. If someone close to you is starting to seem a little manipulative they probably are. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy will make you go back and forth on this (as well as with a number of other things that are going on) but with Pluto coming into alignment with Jupiter don’t feel guilty about putting your needs first. Uranus behind the scenes has been providing a certain amount of anxiousness within you for awhile, but now that all those Aquarius planets are lining up with the planet of freedom to confirm that you’re not crazy, make sure you trust your intuition and do what your heart tells you regarding who to trust and who not to trust. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is yours;

“Destiny is the

Inheritance we get from

Fate after a choice”

Gemini- You are a mutable Air Sign meaning that your mind will literally go whichever way the wind blows. This is particularly true at this time as The Sun, Mercury, and Venus all align harshly with Jupiter in one direction and beneficially with Uranus in the other. This could make you want something (or someone) just because circumstances won’t allow it, or it could make you give up on something (or someone) just because that’s the easiest thing to do right now. As Mars moves into a square with Neptune make sure you’re seeing the situation for what it really is; meaning be aware that what’s going on may actually originate from how you feel about yourself and not some outer reality dictating your existence. Be especially careful over the weekend if a charming stranger seems like they have all the answers to your topsy-turvy life, they don’t, but you may unwittingly have something they could beg, borrow, or steal to satiate their appetite for ego gratification. The Lunar Arc for you this week begins in the House of Creativity and ends in the House of Death and Transformation, meaning responsibility will follow action for you this week as immediately as burps follow beer, so don’t chug that mug just because you feel challenged to prove yourself.

Cancer- With a cluster of planets moving through your House of Legacies and Transformation and aligning with Uranus in your House of Public Image, you have been compelled so far this year to take care of everyone else’s needs but your own. With that same group of planets squaring Jupiter in your House of Creativity you also need to recognize that your life is a steaming locomotive rapidly running out of track, meaning that it’s high time you started taking care of what you need to do for yourself and calling in as many markers as possible to get help. Those who let you down will not be your friends in this next cycle of your life that is rapidly approaching. Pluto in your House of Relationships has been transforming how you deal with others for a while now and with the recent addition of Saturn into that same House you are being asked to swim with the tide instead of feeling that you are being drowned under a tidal wave of circumstances beyond your control. At the end of the week Venus will be entering your House of Philosophy to join Neptune in its home sign of Pisces, with both squaring Mars in your House of Daily Routines and Health. Please my sensitive little crustacean friend, learn to trust the changing tides, after all, you are a creature of the sea.

Leo- The needs and demands of a significant other may have finally reached the point of being untenable unless something is done, though not by you as they have already worn out that option. You Lions are always the last ones to realize it when you’re being taken advantage of, especially if the perpetrator is making you feel like you’re the most important person in their life. If this manipulation is happening on the home front then there isn’t any action on your part that’s needed, but rather non-action. Stop doing stuff that they should be doing, whether that means trying to counsel them about a situation they complain about constantly but won’t change, or cleaning up after them. In other words, stop being whatever they need you to be and start being what you need to be in your own life. Of course this will mean confronting your fears about being alone, but with Mars moving through rebellious Sagittarius on its way to an inevitable confrontation with Uranus not too long from now either you plan how this difficult situation is going to play out or else be surprised when your partner acts like an emotional kamikazi. Mr. Saturn understands this isn’t going to be pretty, but he is telling you what you need to hear and you know it. Remember the line from the song, “I can do bad all by myself.” Word!

Virgo- Saturn and Pluto in your House of Fun and Creativity is where your focus should be this week. Jupiter in Scorpio aligning with the aforementioned pair will likely have you wondering, could there be more fun in my life? At the same time a bunch of Aquarius planets moving through your House of Routines and aligning with Uranus will stimulate you to reflect on how you spend your time if, in fact, you’re not enjoying yourself? Venus will enter Pisces and your House of Partnerships at the end of the week, where it will eventually join with illusionary Neptune before squaring Mars in your House of Home and Symbolic Foundations. How much is a partner requiring of you on a day-to-day basis and to what extent do these expectations consider what your needs are? Hmmm. The Lunar Arc this week will begin in the sign of Libra, which naturally governs relationships and represents your House of Self Worth, where it will first square Saturn and then Pluto before finishing up at the end of the week toe to toe with those same revolutionary boys, Saturn and Pluto, in your House of Creativity. Mr. Saturn say’s, “Try to remember that the word “revolution” also includes the word “love” in it.

Libra- The French Poet Rimbaud (a Libran native) once wrote; “Now is the eve. Let us receive every influx of strength and true tenderness/And at dawn, armed with an ardent patience, we’ll enter into the splendid cities.” What you’re going through now is the stuff from which true poetry is made. The Sun, Mercury, and Venus in your House of Creativity are all angling harshly with Jupiter in your house of Self Worth, setting the stage for some of your long held ideals to clash with reality. Meanwhile, Uranus in your House of Relationships annoyingly keeps repeating that the only true freedom is in being yourself and fighting the good fight. So what is this ardent patience referred to by Mr. Rimbaud? That would be the presence of both Pluto and Saturn in your House of Symbolic Foundations at the very bottom of your chart, each of them working with Neptune as you sort out true visions from illusions and fleeting friendships from real love. The Lunar Arc for the week will descend from your ascendant to your IC, making it seem as if you are entering a dark night of the soul, although along the way the strength and true tenderness referred to in the Rimbaud quote will also be present in the form of Mars in Sagittarius and Venus entering Pisces. Mr. Saturn would encourage you to hang in there and, “May the odds ever be in your favor.”

Scorpio- As The Sun, Mercury, and Venus all sweep across the bottom of your chart and square Jupiter in your sign, you could be experiencing some unexpected delays either at work or on the home front. Not too worry. There is a metaphysical side to all of this that will be activated when Venus enters your House of Creativity, at which point she will sextile Uranus and then square Mars, motivating you to do what needs to be done as you come to the enlightening realization that the challenges life presents us are often the very blessings we need to truly change our realities and make Magick happen. The Lunar Arc this week will also be an illustration of this theme as the Moon begins its journey in your House of Confinement and then continues on through your Houses of Self Worth and Ideas, mirroring the process of birth as you emerge from a symbolic womb to be born into a world of limitless possibilities. As William Blake wrote in his Marriage of Heaven and Hell, “No bird soars too high, if he soars with his own wings.”

Sagittarius- The bottom of an Astrological Chart represents a person’s symbolic foundations. In your case, with Neptune lingering down there for so long you probably feel like a shipwreck survivor adrift in a vast ocean where nothing ever seems to change except for the sun going up and down. On the other hand, with Mars having recently entered your sign another part of you is beginning to feel inspired by a whole new level of energy starting to emerge, the likes of which you’ve probably not felt since back in the day when you were younger and life seemed to present more exciting possibilities. As Mars continues forward and comes into alignment with Mercury in your House of Communication you could likely encounter an unexpected opportunity, either at work or involving a special interest you have. Pluto and Saturn in your House of Self Worth are requiring you to step up and be more ambitious, meaning that any added responsibilities you are willing to accept in your career at this time will likely bring worthwhile dividends in the future. When Venus enters your Home area over the weekend expect that a loved one will need your special attention.

Capricorn- Mr. Saturn say’s, “Impatience is a doppelganger who doesn’t believe in you.” With Mars behind the scenes in your House of Confinement rapidly moving toward an exact square with Neptune in your House of Thinking, this could end up turning into a very anxious week for you as you find yourself worrying and wondering about everything. Add to this the fact that the Sun, Mercury, and Venus in your House of Self Worth are in a harsh angle with Jupiter in your House of Dreams and you’re also probably going to feel judged, yet the question is, by whom? The Lunar Arc beginning in your House of Public Image could have you overly concerned about what others may be thinking, so by the time it enters your sign to close the week you could be knee-deep in fixing things that may not really need to be fixed. Saturn and Pluto in your sign will be offering some sound advice on being careful about how much you worry about what you don’t have, simply because it usually means you’re also likely overlooking what you do have. This is where that doppelganger will be taunting you with ultimatums and judgments about how you should be doing so much better instead of wasting time. Mr. Saturn has a haiku for you this week;

“How much of our fear

Is simply the learning curve

For finding our strength?”

Aquarius- With the Sun, Venus, and Mercury all in your sign and squaring Jupiter in your House of Career you may have some of those close to you asking, “who are you and what have you done with (fill in your name)”? Neptune in your House of Self Worth is not helping to clear up this question, which is just fine with you as long as you remain the center of attention and Mars in your House of Groups has an audience to conquer. Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes will manage to keep things exciting much in the same way that a civil war is exciting, but at what price? Your ambition is ruthless right now, but so is your naiveté when it comes to how fast and loose you think you can play chicken with the balance of the universe. As Venus pulls into Pisces to end the week make sure that you’re not mistaking the admiration of others for love, especially when there is no humility present on your part. Mr. Saturn is feeling inspired this week so he has a haiku for you as well;

“We cast out lines to

Catch fish, yet rarely think past

The water’s surface”

Pisces- The Sun, Venus, and Mercury are all in your House of Confinement and squaring Jupiter in your House of Philosophy, meaning that perhaps the opinions of others are holding a little too much sway with you right now, regardless if you’re trying to conform or rebel as both represent flip sides of the same coin. Saturn and Pluto together in your House of Dreams could also seem like they’re really cracking the whip on you now as it feels like you’re being made to struggle more than you should have to for everything you need. Take heart, there is a silver lining in this cloud of difficulty surrounding you, although complaining about what’s happening or blaming others won’t help you to see it. When Venus enters your sign at the end of the week and starts to approach a beneficial alignment with Saturn in your House of Dreams, you may get a glimpse of the person you’re capable of becoming as you manage to rise to the occasion in a very difficult situation. Because Venus is currently very close to Neptune at this time and both are in your sign, the lesson here will likely involve compassion and selflessness, which may be just what you needed to learn to permanently change your luck.
