Mr. Saturn’s Stars #20 Weekly Horoscopes for 1/22 – 1/28, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 1/22 – 1/28, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! The Sun is now solidly in the sign of Aquarius and as the song goes,

“Harmony and understanding

Sympathy and trust abounding

No more falsehoods or derisions

Golden living dreams of visions

Mystic crystal revelations

And the mind’s true liberation…”

Yeah, right, first though we’ll have to get over this current “Fire and Fury,” reopen the government, and then decide which form of “shit story” we want to believe. No puedo!!!

 

Aries- With the power couple of The Sun and Venus in your House of Groups this week you need to get out there and work the room! I know you think networking can be phony, but that’s only if you’re a charlatan. With Mercury approaching a conjunction with Pluto in your House of Career you are nothing short of a stone cold killer now, except with a fashion sense, charm, and integrity. In fact you’ll probably be the sharpest tool in any shed you find yourself in at this time, so make sure you ninja up and subtly make sushi out of whatever (and whoever) stands in your way. The arc of the Moon this week begins in your sign and then continues through your Houses of Earnings and Communication, meaning get out and “do you” without any apologies, and remember the line from Glengarry Glen Ross, “A-B-C… A-Always, B-Be, C-Closing… Always be closing, always be closing.”

Taurus- Mercury and Pluto are getting thick as thieves in your House of Philosophy right now, meaning your “Spidey Sense” will be tingling like crazy and you’ll feel like you just know stuff before it happens. Add Jupiter in Scorpio and your House of Relationships to the aforementioned mix and no one will be able to escape your X-ray vision. No one. Later in the week when Mars enters Sagittarius and opposes the Moon in Gemini make sure you don’t feel too much sympathy for someone close to you that has just made a mistake you knew they were going to make. With all your power of insight now, realize that how you dole out your sympathy in this situation will mark an important evolutionary step for you in terms of being able to shut down manipulative people who try to take advantage of your good nature. Mr. Saturn say’s, “the bait and switch works because the mark takes the bait.” Nuff said!!!

Gemini- It is one thing to see through other people’s BS, it is quite another matter if what they’re doing throws you off your game so that you end up playing by their rules. Mercury and Pluto will join hands in your House of Transformation midweek and together these two represent penetrating insight. Add to this an alignment with Jupiter and any secrets discovered at this time could turn into some very valuable knowledge for the future. However, keep in mind, if this knowledge doesn’t translate into a sense of self-empowerment for you then it’s merely data. You must realize that what needs to change here is not someone else’s bad (that’s their karma). To really benefit from discovering someone else’s manipulations or bad behaviour you must be able to see how what they’ve done is a way to help you realize your own truth. When Mars moves into Sagittarius and opposes the Moon on your relationship axis just before the weekend, make sure that you’re not blaming anyone else for what’s going on if it’s you who are giving your power away.

Cancer- With the impending conjunction of Mercury and Pluto in your House of Relationships about to align with Jupiter in your House of Creativity, the important thing now is to rethink how you interact with others. Not in terms of any surface behavior, but rather how you feel about yourself before a face-to-face even occurs. The power couple of Venus and the Sun now transiting through your House of Transformation will suggest you set aside your emotional shoulder bag and all the heavy stuff it contains from the past. As Mars enters your House of Work over the weekend let its newly acquired Sagittarius optimism inspire you to action. Try not to hesitate because of the fear you sense in others who still have hang-ups you outgrew long ago. This can be a turnaround week for you philosophically if you can just try to behave like you’re at a New Orleans funeral. In other words, bury the sadness from the past and turn the dirge that accompanied your entrance into a jazzy theme for your exit.

Leo- All of the fixed signs can be oblivious at times, but you Lion people can really take that clueless ball and run with it. As a result, the Mercury/Pluto conjunction this week in your House of Daily Routines could really end up being a slap in the face that you don’t see coming. With Jupiter in Scorpio moving through your House of Family, don’t be surprised if one or more of your relatives have a bone to pick with you. Of course you’ll react badly because you won’t know what they’re talking about. Let me spell it out for you. The Lunar Arc this week goes from Aries through Taurus to Gemini, or from selfishness to responsibility to adapting. In other words, it’s time to shift your priorities from what’s easy to what’s necessary because you’ve been taking someone else’s efforts for granted and they’re done with your sense of entitlement. As the Moon ends the week in Cancer and your House of Confinement, you’re likely going to feel that these recent criticisms directed at you have been unfair and your accusers are cold and insensitive. Try to realize (if you can) that this is not about what you’ve done, but what you haven’t done. Try a little humility instead of being righteous and in all likelihood you’ll be forgiven. Like the Beatles sang, “Man I was mean but I’m changing my scene and I’m doing the best that I can.”

Virgo- You could very well have an “aha” moment this week regarding a creative challenge. If that’s the case, thank Mr. Mercury and Mr. Pluto for all their great investigative work. Of course Jupiter in your House of Thinking and Communication was also instrumental in this epiphany, not to mention the Sun and Venus in detached Aquarius for helping you to put your frustration aside and keep your nose to the grindstone. Of course this doesn’t mean they’ll be blue skies from now on, especially since Mars will be entering your House of Home and on its arrival will oppose a Gemini Moon in your House of Public Image. Foggy Neptune is involved in this meeting as well as he throws in his two cents from your House of Relationships. You can’t be all things for all people so determine some priorities for yourself and be matter of fact with those who want to drink your blood. Mr. Saturn’s Haiku this week is for you;

“Doing for others

What they should do themselves is

A control issue”

Libra- The Magickal term that will describe this week for you is “Crossing the Abyss.” In a nutshell this means that you’ll likely have to let go of something old so that something new can come into your life. This probably sounds cool, but most people are very attached to who they have learned to be in order to fit in with everyone else, therefore, this transition might end up being really uncomfortable based on the reactions you get from others. I know this isn’t necessarily good news for you endlessly equivocating Libra folk, but you’ll probably realize it was all for the best on the back end. Mercury and Pluto conjunct in your House of Symbolic Foundations could signal some really important discoveries, especially since they both align with Jupiter in your House of Self Worth. This could mean a possible windfall of cash or an unusual opportunity. It could also be a meaningful transition, like when Dr. Bruce Banner turns into the Incredible Hulk. Granted, he does usually lose a set of clothes, but on the other hand he also gains super powers. Sounds stressful, I know, which is why Mr. Saturn feels you deserve a haiku this week;

“You can’t expect what

Will set you free, only hope

That you accept it”

Scorpio- The natural detective in you will likely be inspired to come out this week, so, what do you think you might find? Well, Mr. Saturn ain’t gonna be no spoiler and ruin a good mystery, but as a hint you should pay attention to Mercury and Pluto digging around in your House of Education and communicating with Jupiter in your sign. The Lunar Arc going from your House of Work through your House of Partnerships and then into your house of Legacies could mean…uh-uh, no more hints. Oh, okay…Somebody may want to reward your good work with something nice….nuff said!!! The Sun and Venus are playing house in your Home and Family area, which could mean your investigative skills could be directed toward some home decorating, or you could end up having a guest for a while. Just make sure you set some boundaries with this person so you don’t have to discover something bad about them that you didn’t know before. Then again, that’s what makes a good mystery; the detective never suspects where the original crime will lead. As the song goes, “I don’t know how much more of this I can take/ She’s filing her nails while they’re dragging the lake….”

Sagittarius- Pay attention to the writing on the wall this week and you just might be able to uncover some information that could help you dodge a bullet that’s being aimed at your back by someone you thought was a friend. Jupiter in your House of Secrets will act as a protective influence, thereby allowing you to follow with impunity the lead being forged by Mercury and Pluto in solid Capricorn as they investigate behind the scenes to uncover whatever it is you need to know. The Lunar Arc this week would further suggest you being the detective as it crosses your Houses of Creativity, Work, and Partnerships, meaning you could stand to benefit in all three areas. When Mars enters your sign at the end of the week it will oppose the Moon in your House of Relationships, reiterating what was mentioned earlier about defending yourself from some slanderous rumors being circulated by a dubious source. Nebulous Neptune will also be involved here so Mr. Saturn would suggest following this sage advice, “Use all your well-learned politesse/ Or I’ll lay your soul to waste, mm yeah.”

Capricorn- With Mercury and Pluto coming together in your sign this week the time has come when you need to look people in the eye and shoot straight at the target. Jupiter in your House of Groups is aligning solidly with this need for honesty, so make sure you do the right thing even if it seems like it might lead to a hassle. Whether you realize it or not others are looking to your lead so trust your instincts and people will trust you. The Sun and Venus are a power couple in your House of Earned Income now so make sure you “do you” without any apologies and you should see your brand escalate in value right before your eyes. Later in the week Mars will enter your House of Confinement and oppose a Gemini Moon in your House of Work. After the principled stand you made to start the week try to refrain now from either being overly opportunistic or slipping into a sort of lazy limbo where you feel you have somehow earned the right to coast for awhile on your accomplishments. As Grace Slick once sang, “Two Heads can be put together/ And you can fill both your feet with sand/No one will know you’ve gutted your mind/ But what will you do with your bloody hands?”

Aquarius- On the surface you’re all charm and glitz right now due to the fact that both the Sun and Venus are cake walking through your sign. Behind the scenes though Mercury and Pluto are rummaging around for something deeper and less ephemeral than the shiny sequins of Venus. Jupiter in your House of Public Image and Career will continue to puff up these illusions, yet at the same time the King of the Planets is also slipping deeper into the shadows being opened up by the investigations of both Mercury and Pluto. Simply put, this is a time of initiation for you so try not to accept much of anything at face value. There is both an angel and a devil within you right now that needs to be dealt with and the one that wins will be the one you feed. Just remember Robert Mitchum’s murderous character in “The Night of the Hunter” when he exhibits the tattoos of Love and Hate on his fingers and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.

Pisces- Neptune rules both illusion and higher consciousness and as this foggy planet currently transits through your sign it should not be unusual for you to have alternating experiences of both profound confusion and liberating enlightenment. The second of these two states will likely begin your week as the Sun and Venus infuse your inner depths with a sense of universal love. Meanwhile, a Mercury/Pluto conjunction in your House of Dreams will alternately provide you with a deep awareness of your responsibilities. You know clearly at this time what the right thing to do is and, amazingly enough, you will likely try your best to do it. Jupiter in your House of Philosophy will motivate you to rise to the occasion for a loved one, which will probably play out in real time as Mars enters noble Sagittarius just before the weekend and you square off with someone whose questionable behavior you can no longer ignore. The Lunar Arc will give you a temporary respite from some recent financial difficulties, so don’t be surprised if you become the recipient of some timely generosity, either through an unusual opportunity or an unexpected gift.

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

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

 

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

 

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

-Aleister Crowley

 

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

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

“If Love comes knocking

Let it in, you will always

Learn something useful”

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

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

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

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

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

“The seed of mystery

Lies in muddy water

 

How can we fathom the muddiness?

Water becomes clear through stillness

 

How can we become still?

By moving with the stream”

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Would you stand up and walk out on me?

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

And I’ll try not to sing out of key”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #18 Weekly Horoscopes for 1/8 -1/14, 2018

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

 

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

 

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

– John C. Lilly M.D.

 

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

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

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

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

“Destiny is the

Inheritance we get from

Fate after a choice”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

“Faith is a haunted

House where we all search in the

Dark with a candle”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

“No one has broken

My heart, but I’ve certainly

Dropped it a few times”

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

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

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

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

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

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

“We feel entitled

To each moment but then let

Them collect like dust.”

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

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

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #10 Weekly Horoscopes for 11/13-11/19, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes 11/13-11/19, 2017

 Hi kids!!! Glad y’all could make it back this week to Mr. Saturn’s Stars.

 

“For those who have an intense urge for spirit and wisdom, it sits near them waiting.                                    -Patanjali

 

 Aries- You could really be torn this week between your head and your heart. A part of you knows you need to compromise, yet another part of you is still driven by the fear of possibly losing your independence and, ultimately, yourself. Part of the problem here is looking at your vulnerability as weakness when it is actually strength. Mars and the Moon in your House of Relationships squaring Pluto will bring out your ingrained patterns and fear, while a Venus/Jupiter conjunction combined with Neptune represents the Mystic in you that can’t be repressed. Over the weekend a Scorpio New Moon inconjunct Uranus in your sign should bring you a Satori experience as you rise like the Phoenix from the ashes. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is yours;

“A candle exists

To be consumed by both the

Flame and the darkness”

Taurus- A wise guy once said, “There is no freedom without responsibility, and for each of us the rest of the world represents responsibility.” Venus and Jupiter in your House of Partnerships would suggest that compromise with a colleague or roommate is key and idealistic Neptune would concur. On the other hand, Mars squaring Pluto has you feeling like any infringement on your comfort zone would be like an invasion by a barbarian horde. What did Nietzsche say? “Whatever doesn’t kill me makes me stronger.” Even though erratic Uranus in your House of Hidden Fears has you hyperventilating, Mr. Saturn is trying to remind you that any difficulty you face resulting from a choice made of your own free will is a blessing. Why? Because it will allow you to make another choice if you don’t like the way things turn out, and that, my dear, is freedom!

Gemini- Mercury squaring Neptune to start the week could reveal how a partner has deceived you. The arc of the Moon over the remainder of the week will then in turn outline how you should deal with the situation. The Moon and Mars in Libra squaring Pluto will have you seething, and Mercury with Mars will make you want to rip this person a new orifice. However, the Moon in Scorpio midweek along with Venus and Jupiter will try to convince you to take the highroad and think about your healing rather than revenge. The New Moon over the weekend should offer some insight about this unraveling of events, especially when you realize this isn’t the first time this person has misled you. As the Moon finishes the week in Sagittarius squaring Neptune, Mr. Saturn would advise, “make sure your sadness hasn’t sentenced you to the same gallows that your betrayer should be swinging from.”

Cancer- The Moon beginning the week at the bottom of your chart will have you wrapped up in family and home matters. A situation is changing and as the saying goes, “Time and tide wait for no one.” With Mercury squaring Neptune, try not to blame yourself too much for your role in something that was inevitable. When the Moon meets up with Venus and Jupiter in your House of Creativity and they all get some visionary help from Neptune, you should finally see (and feel) the bigger picture. Mars and Mercury should provide a further burst of energy and before long you’ll likely be humming to yourself that horribly contagious song, “Don’t Worry, Be Happy.” The New Moon over the weekend inconjunct Uranus will bring on some unexpected developments but hey, don’t worry, if you just stop humming that stupid song Mr. Saturn will probably agree to lend you a helping hand.

Leo- With a Venus/Jupiter conjunction, the Sun, and the Moon all in Scorpio this week you will be in a reflective mood regarding your roots. Combine this with the fact that Neptune is in your House of Legacies and the stage is all set for a little Freudian Chess. Why do you do what you do? What will be your next move? Mars in Libra squaring Pluto will bring all your unexplainable frustrations to the forefront, while at the same time Uranus in your House of Philosophy will want to rebel when Mr. Saturn tells you to put away your toys. At some point all this righteousness (and fear) about your independence could suddenly turn into a long forgotten memory of a little child fearing to say “no” for the first time: Hmmm, interesting….. Mr. Saturn say’s, “your time is up, but for next week you should think about who that little child is currently saying “no” to; could it  be you?

Virgo- Mr. Saturn at the bottom of your chart has been a good disciplinary influence as of late, but then along comes Mercury the Trickster with a hip flask of Neptunian escapism and there you go right into the gutter. What were you thinking of? The Moon and Mars in your House of Self worth squaring Pluto have brought up some old patterns of powerlessness and rebellion. It’s a shame that you haven’t figured out yet that rebellion is essentially the paradox of giving your power away so you can feel strong and righteous by taking it back. Therapy would be helpful, but this time you have probably bitten off your nose to spite your face. There will be a price to pay for your blunder and it will probably end up costing you a great relationship. Even Mr. Saturn is sad about this one.

Libra- This week begins with a lot of energy for you as both Mars and the Moon are together in your sign. At the same time Mercury and Neptune will form a mutable square in your Communication and Work areas, so get ready for a period of confusion or misdirection either on the job or while you’re running some errands. Venus, Jupiter, and the Sun all in your House of Earnings could bring a unique income opportunity, especially since the Sun is inconjunct Uranus. Mars will move into a square with Pluto and a sextile to Mercury later in the week, which means if you can stay cool you’ll probably manage to turn around a tense situation by either saying or doing the right thing at the right time. Even Mr. Saturn will say, “Well done!”

Scorpio- With Mars behind the scenes, Mercury hustling for advancement, and Pluto driving you ever onward, this could be a week of some real accomplishment for you. Venus, Jupiter, and the Sun in your sign along with Neptune in your House of Charm are all making you a real magnet in both work and play. Mr. Saturn has been keeping your books for a while and his influence has allowed you to really consolidate your resources so that you can forge ahead into some new places, both within yourself and professionally. Uranus in your House of Routines has been making things hectic and perhaps you haven’t been taking as good care of yourself as you should. The New Moon over the weekend should see you resting and coming to grips with the fact that you’re not immortal. ”At least not until the work week starts again,” say’s Mr. Saturn.

Sagittarius- Mr. Saturn has been trying to tell you, “Luck is not about what you do, it’s about who you are.” As the week unfolds this little bit of wisdom will be illustrated for you by the developing planetary transits. First, Venus and Jupiter conjunct in your House of the Subconscious would symbolize the seed for luck. Second, Mercury squaring Neptune in your House of Foundations would symbolize the illusions you harbor about all that you feel you need to do to be accepted. Third, Mars in your House of Hopes and Dreams represents your frustration as it squares Pluto in your House of Earnings. The New Moon in Scorpio over the weekend will then combine all of this into an illuminating catharsis as it inconjuncts Uranus in your House of Creativity and everything comes full circle back to Mr. Saturn sitting there with annoying calm and reminding you, “I told you so.”

Capricorn- What does the Taoist concept of Non-action mean? Mr. Saturn would explain it like this; “When there is a solo in a piece of orchestral music everyone except the soloist stops playing. The musicians who are not playing can then be said to be practicing non-action because that’s what the composition called for.” After a significant pause, Mr. Saturn would then add, “Take this to heart my cloven hoofed friend.” With Venus and Jupiter currently conjunct in Scorpio in your House of Groups, it’s not about doing anything but being patient and going with the flow. At the start of the week Mercury behind the scenes squaring Neptune will make you anxious and Mars squaring Pluto will drive you to overcompensate, but stay cool. When Mercury eventually joins together with Mars the conductor will point to you to solo. The New Moon over the weekend will then make an esoteric connection with Uranus to reveal a surprise and then you’ll understand what all this non-action stuff really means.

Aquarius- As a fixed air sign you’re convinced that you’re always right regarding just about everything. If it turns out that you’re wrong, you’ll usually just incorporate the correct info into a modified point of view as though that’s what you said in the first place. Mercury squaring Neptune at the beginning of the week will start this flip-flopping process, but when Mars squares Pluto you’ll once again be found trying to put the proverbial egg back in its shell or tell us the rain isn’t really wet. The truth will eventually surface when Mercury connects with Mars, although over the weekend as the New Moon does its hoodoo with Uranus and uses the glamour of Venus and Jupiter to its advantage, once again you will be convinced that you’ve fooled everyone. Everyone that is except Mr. Saturn, who will be muttering under his breath, “Jive Turkey!”

Pisces- This should be a whirlwind week for you as Mercury crosses your Public House and you overbook yourself and bite off more than you can possibly chew. Don’t expect any sympathy though as others will take you at your word and then be ticked off when you can’t deliver. Part of the problem is that you only hear what you want to and then assume the truth is someone else’s responsibility. The arc of the Moon won’t enlighten you much this week as it goes from charming Libra to ruthless Scorpio and then into oblivious Sagittarius. Nevertheless you will be unsinkable as Venus and Jupiter trine Neptune for luck and the New Moon creates a spell with Uranus to confuse matters and help you make a clean getaway. In the aftermath of it all, Mr. Saturn will be shaking his head as he comments, “You were lucky this time, but don’t try that sh*t ever again.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #9 Weekly Horoscopes for 11/6-11/12, 2007

Weekly Horoscopes for 11/6-11/12, 2017

 

Hi Kids! Mr. Saturn’s glad to see you back. It’s time again to turn back the clocks, so for all you early risers out there it’s now going to be dark in the morning as well as when you get home. Not exactly “30 Days of Night,” but not very uplifting either. Make sure you order some extra Vitamin D-3 online. But hey, take heart; the Spring Equinox is only 135 days away! Doesn’t that make you feel better? Quoth the Raven, “Eh, not really.”

Aries- With Mercury entering Sagittarius to start the week you could be feeling in the mood for something exotic, which could mean either a trip to a faraway land or (more likely) a flirtation with someone who’s from a much different background than you. Either way, with Jupiter and Venus in Scorpio coming into alignment with Neptune there could be a lot more here than you realize and it could become quite habit forming. Perhaps there’s a Professional angle to this as well, in so far as you’ve become so addicted to work you’ve forgotten how to “turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream.” Mr. Saturn and Uranus will also be in exact alignment this week, so regardless if this other person makes you feel young again or a grown-up at last, remember, age is just a number.

Taurus- Early in the week a Cancer Moon will align with Jupiter, Venus, and Neptune making you about as mushy as you’ve felt in a long time. Mercury entering Sagittarius will have you wanting to verbally express this by saying “Namaste” to everyone you meet, but try to refrain from over-indulging in the rhetoric of love and instead perform some sincere and thoughtful acts of kindness for those around you. Later in the week when a Leo Moon aligns with Uranus and Mr. Saturn, expect surprises from either a family member or a roommate. Don’t hesitate to express your true feelings in this situation, regardless if that means being nice or not and depending of course on whether this person turns out to be a charming flake or just a flake.

Gemini- With the Sun transiting your House of Health this could be a good time to begin a regimen geared toward a new you. This could mean starting a detox, going to a spa, or just giving up something you know isn’t good for you. Venus and Jupiter in Scorpio aligning with Neptune in your Public Sphere and a Cancer Moon mid-week would suggest that any effort you make now to change something you don’t like about yourself could end up bringing some truly satisfying results. Mr. Saturn in your House of Relationships, along with Uranus and a Leo Moon in your House of Communications, would suggest you start to think about starting a group for a project you’ve been fantasizing about. Perhaps this could be an alternative career developing, who knows?

Cancer- The arc of the Moon this week will be an emotional rollercoaster for you, however, take heart, you’re strapped in your seat tightly so no matter how steep the drop looks you won’t fall out. By the time midweek arrives and the Moon enters Leo, Mars in your Home sector will provide all the energy necessary to battle through the frustration of renovations or a messy home project. As Mercury in Sagittarius approaches a square to Neptune, you could be required to deal with some real stupidity in the workplace. All you can do is grin and bear it and try not to let anyone see you clenching your fists in your pockets. Venus and Jupiter in your House of Romance over the weekend will be a hot couple, so let Mr. Saturn suggest an excellent wine to relax with.

Leo- With the Sun, Venus, and Jupiter all in your House of Home and Family, this would be an auspicious time to reach out to a relative who would be thrilled to hear from you. Mercury in your House of Creativity working with Mars in Libra would suggest that you could inadvertently have the solution for a difficulty they’re going through. Try not to procrastinate too much before reconnecting with them though, or something could happen and you’ll feel guilty for not having helped. With Pluto lingering in your House of Health you should be careful about neglecting any sort of physical discomfort you may be experiencing. Now might be the time to go for that check-up you’ve been putting off. Expertly brandishing his stethoscope, Mr. Saturn say’s, “turn your head and cough.”

Virgo- When the Moon enters Cancer early in the week and squares Mars in your House of Earned Income, you will be feeling like you need more out of life. At the same time Jupiter and Venus together in Scorpio working with Neptune could bring you an unexpected opportunity through a partner or relative. As Mercury in Sagittarius approaches a square to Neptune make sure to ask some practical questions about any situations you’re presented with. This person may mean well, but make sure you know what you’re getting into. When Uranus, the planetary archetype of surprises and accidents aspects cynical Mr. Saturn, he will feel compelled to remind you, “If a situation seems too good to be true, it probably is.”

Libra- With Mars in your sign, Mercury in your House of Communication, and a Cancer Moon passing through your House of Career, you will be feeling more concerned about your public image than ever before. Especially since you’re wondering why some very good work you’ve been doing as of late has ended up going unnoticed. With this in mind, Mr. Saturn in your House of Writing and Uranus in your House of Partnerships may be trying to tell you to start targeting a different audience if your current milieu isn’t supporting you. Meanwhile, Venus and Jupiter in your House of Earnings could bring an opportunity for some easy cash from an unexpected source. As Mr. Saturn would say, “It’s money they have and peace they don’t,” so if you can truly make someone feel better (and you can) then that is certainly worth whatever they think it is.

Scorpio- There are snakes that possess the ability to hypnotize their prey before killing them, which is exactly the kind of charm you have right now with both Venus and Jupiter approaching a conjunction in your sign. As Mercury in your House of Earnings is fueled by Mars from behind the scenes, opportunities should be in abundance for you this week as well, although the trick to capitalizing on these situations might have more to do with what you’re willing to give up than with what you desire. This is not a moral dilemma, but a matter of enlightenment. With that in mind, Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

“Good or Evil? The

Speed of Darkness is equal

To the Speed of Light”

Sagittarius- Mercury entering your sign should bring on a very busy week for you, especially with Mars in your House of Groups making it seem as if everyone needs your help. The arc of the Moon this week will begin in your House of Shared Resources, at which point it will trine a Venus/Jupiter conjunction as well as Neptune in your Home Area. You have a kind and compassionate heart and this aspect will accentuate it even more, meaning you could very well be taken advantage of yet again by a whiner or a bully. Late in the week when the Moon pulls into Leo and aspects Mars, you may finally find the chutzpah to tell these users off. As inspiration to prepare for standing up to these jerks, Mr. Saturn would suggest checking out the film “Network,” particularly the part where the character of Howard Beale losses his sh*t on the air…. “I’m mad as hell and I’m not gonna take it anymore!”

Capricorn- It is said, “When the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” A loose Grand Trine involving The Moon in Cancer, Venus and Jupiter in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces in the Houses governing your Relationships, Groups, and Communication, would speak to you meeting some sort of karmic partner this week either in a class or gathering of some sort. Mars in Libra in your Public Sector working with Mercury in Sagittarius behind the scenes could further indicate that you might meet this individual somewhere you didn’t actually plan on being. Oh, one other thing, there’s also a possibility this person could mysteriously annoy you for some reason. Mr. Saturn would add with a wink, “you might prefer the devil you know, but you’ll only learn from the devil you don’t know.”

Aquarius- With Jupiter and Venus in your House of Career and Public Image smoothly aligning in the element of water with Neptune and a Cancer Moon, your vulnerability should be at an all time high this week. The question is, can you handle that? You are often annoyed when others get emotional, but maybe now that the shoe is on your foot you’ll finally understand the compassion of Buddha? Or maybe Uranus in your House of Communication lining up with Mr. Saturn in your Public Sphere will make you think your usual detachment will be more efficient? The determinant here may be Pluto renovating your Mystical House, for he will not be denied his mission of deep transformation. Perhaps then you should leave being cool to the Eskimos? Mr. Saturn suggests letting go of your whole control thing and instead allow your self be handcuffed to that proverbial bedpost of trust. Maybe you’ll have a whole “Rocky Horror Picture Show” thing go on and love it!

Pisces- Neptune is your ruling planet, so you’d think having it return home to Pisces after 165 years would be a good thing? When it comes to Neptune though there’s really no telling, so maybe now you can understand how the Ancients must have felt when they looked out at the ocean and tried to imagine what was beyond the horizon? Nevertheless, with Venus and Jupiter this week in your sister water sign of Scorpio you could be quite convinced you know exactly what’s out there. Yet as Mercury rolls through your Public House you will face the same dilemma as everyone else who has ever been convinced by their dreams and/or opinions, namely how to turn whatever it is you believe into a real thing? As the Moon finishes up in Virgo over the weekend those convictions of yours could end up turning into a hangover after all that Sufi Wine you’ve been imbibing. I can almost hear Mr. Saturn snickering already, “who do you think you are, Rumi?
