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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Let’s all drink to the death of a clown

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la”

-The Kinks

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #49 Weekly Horoscopes for 8/20-8/26, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 8/20-8/26, 2018

 

Inertia; “The resistance of any physical object to any change in its position and state of motion. This includes changes to the object’s speed, direction, or state of rest.”

 

Hi kids!!! We have 5 retrograde planets and 3 major inconjuncts this week, so after you read your horoscope if you’re still impatient about what’s not happening in your life, refer to the above definition…. Que sera sera……

 

Aries- Venus transiting through your House of Relationships might have you feeling a little more amorous than usual, however, since she inconjuncts Neptune behind the scenes and squares Pluto in your House of Public Image, hold off on any crushes or hit and runs for the time being. The Sun in your House of Romance inconjunct Mars retrograde in your House of Career would also indicate you should probably avoid any work place romances as well; in short, let this Venus transit be about friendship and camaraderie rather than anything epic, like say, Doctor Zhivago or Boogie Nights. If you don’t believe me and insist on being either Don Juan or Juanita, don’t be surprised if Jupiter in your House of Intimacy squaring Mercury in  your House of Romance shows you just how thin the line is that separates love and hate……just sayin’.

 

Taurus- If you’re not being treated the way you think you deserve in either a romantic or professional partnership, this could be the week when the matador loses the bullfight. Jupiter in your House of Relationships is squaring Mercury in your House of Foundations, so don’t hesitate to speak your mind if you’re feeling agitated and you just might finally get through to that “special” person who’s just doesn’t seem to get it. You are no one’s option and with Uranus in your sign you might just end up being someone’s headache; a word to the wise! The Sun will be entering your House of Romance later in the week, and when he does he’ll be forming a Grand Trine with Uranus as well as Saturn retrograde in your House of Philosophy, meaning don’t hesitate to kick to the curb anyone who disrespects your heart (or any other part of you for that matter). Love begins at home with “y-o-u.”

 

Gemini- You may have your eye on someone this week but try not to be too easy if you can help it. Venus in your House of Romance inconjunct Neptune in your House of Communication would indicate that if you can be fooled, you will, so be careful. Mr. Saturn has a saying you might benefit from and it goes, “I’ve never had my heart broken, but I’ve dropped it a few times.” Hopefully, a word to the wise on this will be sufficient. Venus squaring Pluto in your House of Sex and Intimacy could make you an unpleasant customer if you should get your feelings hurt, so make sure you have an attorney on speed dial and plenty of bail money, Uranus behind the scenes in your chart could end up with shit get crazy real quick.

 

Cancer- Venus is passing through your House of Home and Symbolic Foundations, so it may be high time for you to stop trying to fix the world and instead bring some of that “Good Lovin’” of yours on home to hubby or wifey. Neptune in your House of Philosophy is about amore, but seeing as the King of the Sea is inconjunct Venus, perhaps it means that you’ve been taking a significant other for granted and they deserve better, especially with Venus also squaring Pluto in your House of Romance. Try to make sure that sparks of passion don’t inadvertantly erupt into a crime of passion because they’re all fired up with nowhere to go; just sayin’, take it on advisement. Instead, why don’t you listen to Uranus in your House of Dreams aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Realtionships, as they suggest perhaps coming up with a little surprise to add some spice to that good home cookin’ you and your significant other just love to share. Bon appetite!!!

 

Leo- With Neptune in your House of Transformation inconjunct both Venus in your House of Communication and Mercury in your sign, your dialogues with others (or lack thereof) will be of paramount importance now. Jupiter in your House of Foundation squaring Mercury could make it very easy for you to be misunderstood, especially if you choose to monologue at people rather than dialogue as mentioned above. Uranus retrograde in your House of Public Image aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Work could require you to walk back a pronouncement you made in the past that was either misconstrued or just badly expressed, take the time to do it, especially with the Sun entering Virgo later in the week to form a Grand Trine with Uranus and Saturn; your humility and willingness to admit you were wrong will have a surprising effect at galvanizing public trust in your favor. What originally came out bad could end up good.

 

Virgo- It is very important now to clearly express how you feel about someone so they don’t assume your silence or shyness is indifference, or worse, some kind of subtle criticism. This is because Neptune in a double inconjunct to both Venus in your House of Self Worth and Mercury behind the scenes will likely make it very easy for any lack of confidence you might be feeling to appear as if it’s an unsatisfactory judgment of someone else. The Sun entering your sign midweek will subsequently form a Grand Trine with both Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity and Uranus retrograde in your House of Philosophy, meaning that any risks you are willing to take to express yourself now could yield some quite surprising dividends; be willing to push your comfort zone as vulnerability and honesty could really be your forte right now. Hell, you might even be a poet and don’t know it!

 

Libra- With Mars in your House of Foundation inconjunct to the Sun in your House of Dreams, a very valuable lesson may await you this week in the mostly unlikely place or under the most unexpected circumstances. Neptune in your House of Work inconjunct to both Venus in your sign and Mercury in your House of Groups could likely provide you with some real significant insights if you’re could just manage to shut up for once instead of always needing to point out some injustice or other. Acceptance is a great form of spiritual insight when it allows one to see something clearly for what it is, no matter how you may feel about it one way or the other. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth will be aligning nicely with Neptune, and this will likely refer to how the lesson previously mentioned will truly make you wise, that is, if you’re willing to go with the flow.

 

“The only wisdom we can hope to acquire

Is the wisdom of humility; humility is endless.”

-T.S. Eliot

 

Scorpio- Neptune in your House of Romance inconjunct to both Mercury in your House of Public Image and Venus behind the scenes could see you surprising someone by your interest in them. After all, an intense knockout like you wouldn’t be expected to have a crush, most folks would just assume you crush the world on a daily basis with that smoldering charisma of yours. The truth however, is that you’re a mushy little romantic just like everyone else, who is susceptible to embarrassing obsessions and wondering if Mr. or Ms. Fabulous even notices you. Uranus retrograde in your House of Relationships aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Communication could be like a cat that’s got your tongue, but don’t worry, quite often it’s the look of love rather than small talk that say’s it all; and you got a patent on that kind of intensity! As the song goes;

 

“The look of love

Is saying so much more than

Just words could ever say

And what my heart has heard

Well it takes my breath away”

 

Sagittarius- The Sun in your House of Philosophy is inspiring you to imagine a better situation for yourself, although an inconjunct of the Sun to Mars in your House of Self Worth is leaving you feeling a little depressed about how to actually get to such a place. Some additional inconjuncts between Neptune in your House of Home and Family with both Venus in your House of Dreams and Mercury in your House of Philosophy could possibly offer some valuable insights here, but only if you’re willing to honestly acknowledge how your family relationships (or lack thereof) have established the foundations for whatever it is you currently believe about yourself. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth aligning with Uranus retrograde and the Sun entering your House of Public Image can certainly help now with breaking any unhealthy patterns you may have, although it will probably be Jupiter in your House of Secrets aligning with Neptune who’ll be asking the really important question when you are challenged with, “Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?” What’s your answer?

 

Capricorn- If you think telling someone what they want to hear as opposed to telling the truth will solve a current problem at work, you’ll soon learn otherwise as Venus in your House of Career inconjuncts Neptune in your House of Communication and The Sun in your House of Transformation inconjuncts Mars retrograde in your sign. If it isn’t pointed out that the current problem is the fault of the person who caused it, then it will have to be somebody’s, just be careful you’re not elected as the scapegoat. As the Sun moves into your House of Philosophy later in the week, he’ll be aligning beautifully with both Saturn retrograde in your sign, and Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity, meaning that if you had the stones to speak the truth to the pompous buffoon that was trying to palm off excuses, then the chickens will certainly be going home to roost; but it won’t be your address they’ll be going to. Stay honest, stay strong, stay safe!

 

Aquarius- You may start out the week believing what you want to believe, especially with Venus in your House of Philosophy inconjunct Neptune in your House of Self Worth. The only problem is, with the Sun in your House of Relationships inconjunct Mars behind the scenes, there will also be someone keeping score on the situation and they may not necessarily be a fan of you or what you believe is true. Jupiter in your House of Public Image will also be aligning with Neptune, which could help you dodge a bullet by smelling the poo before you put your foot in it, especially if you can hold on until the Sun crosses into your House of Transformation and aligns with Uranus retrograde in your House of Foundations and Saturn retrograde behind the scenes. Everyone makes errors in judgment at some point, but not everyone can walk it back into a coup d’e tat that makes their initial ill informed illusion look like a stroke of genius, congratulations.

 

Pisces- Neptune in your sign inconjunct Venus in your House of Transformation may have you doubting your ability to meet a new challenge, yet at the same time, the Sun in your House of Work inconjunct Mars retrograde in your House of Dreams won’t let you just sit back and give up. What to do? At this point enter Jupiter in your House of Philosophy to lead the cheering section and amp up the inspirational rhetoric, while at the same time the Sun entering the sign of Virgo will form an earthy Grand Trine with Uranus and Saturn, a trio of badass mercenaries representing all the “Lawyers, Guns, and Money” you’ll need. Can you hear the bugle cry of the cavalry coming to the rescue yet? When the Full Moon arrives in your sign at the end of the week you’ll probably be feeling a lot less stressed. Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good, and this week will be one of those times.

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

”Can you see the real me preacher?

Can you see the real me doctor?

Can you see the real me mother?

Can you see the real me?”

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #45 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/23-7/29, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/23-7/29, 2018

 

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

It will be quite eventful in the heavens this week, as the Sun enters Leo, Mercury goes station/retrograde, a Full Moon conjuncts Mars, and there will be 5 (count ‘em 5) retrograde planets. All in all things look to be shaping up into a real Astrogenous Zone…..are you excited yet?

 

Aries- You’ll be feeling a real strong urge to rebel this week, just make sure you don’t end up biting off your nose to spite your face. With the Sun entering fiery Leo to oppose a Full Moon conjunct Mars retrograde and square crazy Uranus, you will be in no mood to hear shit from anyone. In the meantime, the fact that there are five retrograde planets (including Mercury) will probably have you feeling like you’ve been shackled to the nowheresville express, especially regarding a project that your collaborators seem to be dragging their feet on. Even though you may be beyond frustrated with the world, keep in mind that Jupiter and Venus are currently in aspect and with those two around there’s always hope, so just keep doing what you do and don’t deny yourself some play time…..Happy Hour anyone?

 

Taurus- With Uranus in your sign squaring a Full Moon conjunct Mars retrograde, the possibility of another delay in a job project or in your overall career could very well push you over the edge this week. Mr. Saturn’s only suggestion would be if you’re going to take a dive make sure it’s into a pool (or the ocean). The fact that there are five retrograde planets at this time (including Mercury) will probably reduce the likelihood to less than zero of anything moving forward, although that doesn’t necessarily mean that things have to move backwards. Jupiter in your House of Relationships balancing out a Venus/Neptune opposition could make this the perfect time to revisit an old flame that never quite got the kindling it deserved, or else try stoking the fires of a potential new flame! Either way, take advantage of this forced vacation to stop and smell the roses, you’ll be glad you did.

 

Gemini- The Sun entering your House of Communication will likely have you feeling all blustery and oratorical this week, although with a combination of Mercury going station/retrograde, the Full Moon conjunct Mars retrograde, and Uranus being squared behind the scenes, you might end up experiencing some horrific blowback if you’re not careful about what you let escape out of your pie hole. Jupiter aligning nicely with Venus in Virginal Virgo would indicate that if you can just mind your manners and manage to be seen and not heard any more than usual, you could end up dodging a bullet. In other words, try not to spout off and make yourself an obvious target. Saturn retrograde in your House of Transformation will continue to hold back some vital resources from you, but look at it this way, perhaps showing you can keep your mouth shut right now might just be the test that Saturn needed to see you pass. Hush, hush Sweet Charlotte.

 

Cancer- Much (if not all) of your patience with loved ones is due to your extreme sensitivity to their needs, which could be severely tested this week, so be careful that the train doesn’t go off the tracks. The Full Moon conjunct Mars retrograde in your House of Joint Resources will be opposing a Leo Sun in your House of Self Worth and squaring Uranus in your House of Dreams, meaning a request for help at this time may just require a pound of flesh that for once you’re not willing to sacrifice. If you can weather your initial guilt about putting your interests before someone who is undoubtedly putting their interests before yours, then you just might be able to hear your Guardian Angel cheering “Good for you!!!” With five retrograde planets this week (including Mercury retrograde) don’t hesitate to go back down memory lane and remember how certain people have taken advantage of you in the past, that way when the tears come to your eyes for having to say “no” to them, you’ll experience it as tears of joy for finally putting yourself first and not feeling guilty about it!

 

Leo- With the Sun entering your sign this week you should get a nice jolt of energy, and you’ll need it. A Full Moon conjuncting Mars retrograde in your House of Relationships and squaring Uranus in your House of Public Image could see you as the focus of some serious weirdness on the part of a friend or lover. Your natural charisma can sometimes make you seem larger than life, which unfortunately makes other people feel less; of course that’s not your fault, but with that Mars/Uranus square to egg the crazies on, watch out! Your saving grace in the face of any potential difficulties now will likely be provided by Jupiter in your House of Home aligning with Venus in your House of Self Worth, who together are known as “The Benefics,” or bringers of good fortune. Your willingness to make amends is intrinsic to your noble nature, just don’t let someone else’s problem turn into yours if you don’t have to. Mercury retrograde in your sign could reveal a dirty little secret about someone you’d never have suspected….pay attention!!!

 

Virgo- Venus in your sign is “The Virgin” and while everyone wants to possess a Virgin’s purity, who will stand up for her freedom and right to self-determination? With Jupiter aligning with her from your House of Communication, that just might have to be you. The Full Moon this week will join with Mars retrograde to oppose the Sun behind the scenes and square Uranus in your House of Philosophy, meaning that you might just be ready to upset the apple cart and set the whole shithouse on fire if anyone tries to tell you what you should think, or worse, what you can’t do!!! Mercury retrograde behind the scenes in the fiery sign of Leo will be the cheerleader you’ll need to help you remember all those times when you were pushed around and caved in to the needs of others, while Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity will be instrumental in helping you to restructure a new foundation for yourself without needing anyone around to give you any stinkin’ permission. “The times they are a changin’.”

 

Libra- The Full Moon conjunct Mars retrograde will be in your House of Creativity, where it will square Uranus in your House of Transformation. If you are involved in a creative project at this time be prepared to surrender and let the work guide you, rather than trying to exercise control over something new that is trying to emerge from deep inside your subconscious. A catharsis is at hand and Jupiter in your House of Self Worth aligning with Venus behind the scenes would indicate that you’re every bit up to it, that is, if you can listen to Neptune in your House of Routines telling you to “breathe” and “let go.” Mercury retrograde in your House of Dreams will only last a few weeks, make sure to take that time to review (and hopefully better understand) your original inspiration that began this path you’re currently on. Ask the Muse for some clarity, you’ll be glad you did!

 

Scorpio- Your responsibilities to a friend or partner could become quite oppressive for you now, especially with Uranus in your House of Relationships squaring the Full Moon axis as it conjuncts Mars retrograde in your House of Foundations. For a long time you’ve tried to avoid this confrontation, but your ability to put up with dishonesty and/or incompetence has reached its breaking point. Jupiter in your sign aligning with Venus could provide the antidote for this situation; not to help you fix it, but rather to offer a way out, either to a different situation or to an entirely new allegiance with someone who’s more your type. During this time of transition, Mercury retrograde in your House of Public Image will effectively serve to hold up a mirror so you can see for yourself what the world sees when it looks at you. Pay attention to these insights being offered, as they will no doubt be extremely helpful in making sure you don’t end up recreating your old situation with a new cast of characters.

 

Sagittarius- As the Sun enters the fiery sign of Leo in your House of Philosophy, it will oppose the Full Moon conjunct Mars retrograde in your House of Communication. This testy opposition will in turn be offset by a square to explosive and unpredictable Uranus in your House of Work and Routines, which could mean that you’re about to be smoked yet again by the blowback from doing the same thing over and over (either at home or at work) and expecting a different result. Jupiter behind the scenes is plotting like an underground revolutionary to free you from this madness, yet the propaganda of illusory Neptune opposing the servile mentality of Venus in Virgo could end up leaving your brave liberator swinging in the wind. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth may ultimately be what turns the tide here, as his gravitas and unimpeachable respectability ultimately helps you to realize, “Shit, I’m really unhappy and I need to do something different….” Duh!

 

Capricorn- All the things you haven’t been doing for yourself will likely become squeaky wheels this week (or even unexpected explosions) as the Full Moon conjuncts Mars retrograde in your House of Self Worth and opposes the Sun entering Leo in your House of Transformation. Unpredictable Uranus will then, in turn, square both ends of this opposition from your House of Fun and Creativity, which is exactly what you’ve probably been denying yourself while keeping your nose to Saturn retrogrades proverbial grindstone as he sits stoically in your sign like a factory foreman overseeing you. Jupiter in your House of Groups aligning with Venus in your House of Philosophy will try to suggest that you should get out more, although with Neptune in your House of Thinking you might just let guilt win the day and stay in the sweatshop with exacting old Mr. Saturn. Don’t!!!

 

Aquarius- The emotional Full Moon this week will be in your sign conjunct Mars retrograde, which will likely make you want to come clean about anything that’s bothering you. The Sun in Leo in your House of Relationships opposing this Full Moon and squaring Uranus will likely make whatever you say more of an exercise in ego than anything else, although with Jupiter in your House of Public Image aligning with Venus in your House of Transformation, you’ll probably have people believing you anyway. Mercury retrograde in your House of Relationships should add to this by giving you the necessary eloquence to effectively walk back whatever you need to, although Saturn retrograde in your House of Secrets would calmly suggest that if you really want to make amends, simply shut up and start behaving differently, like for instance try being a little more humble; saying you’re sorry should never be a performance.

 

Pisces- Work could be an issue this week, especially if you feel like an employer is taking advantage of you. The Full Moon conjunct Mars retrograde will be in your House of Confinement and it will alternately oppose the Sun in your House of Work and square volatile Uranus in your House of Communication, meaning that you’ve probably been storing up injustices for a while now and likely feel all ready to rip somebody a new orifice. Granted, it is not healthy to repress your emotions, but it is also detrimental to be unemployed. Hopefully Jupiter in your House of Philosophy aligning with Neptune in your sign and Venus in your House of Relationships will bring out your inner Zen Master as well as your sense of humor, so that you can gather yourself and calmly accept the fact that you won’t be a victim of these circumstances for ever, just until you find something better and move on. Saturn retrograde will further re-iterate that it’s not the right time yet to blow this pop stand, but it will be soon…..soon…..

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #41 Weekly Horoscopes for 6/25-7/1, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 6/25- 7/1, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Before I commence with this week’s horoscopes, I would like to take a moment to suggest an idea for a new hash tag movement.

It’s usually my opinion that public discourse on matters affecting our society should remain civil, however, when you have a cabal of racist buffoons in the white house who believe it’s a good idea to separate children from their parents, then as far as I’m concerned all bets are off regarding respect or decency toward these monsters; call them what they are!

With that in mind here’s my hash tag idea;

If you take away the “T” you have “rump,” which the dictionary defines as “the hind quarters of an animal.”

Next you turn “rump” into an acronym;

Racist Unqualified Mendacious Putz

So you don’t have to look it up, mendacious means “lying” and putz is Yiddish slang for “dick”.

There you go, #Rump. What d’ya think? If y’all like it then you have my permission to spread it around!

 

Aries- With a Full Moon conjunct Saturn and 5 retrograde planets in your Houses of Career, Transformation, Dreams, and Hidden Obstacles, this will no doubt be a decidedly un-Aries week for you.  Add to this the fact that your ruling planet (Mars) will be going station/retrograde and moving back toward a square with explosive Uranus, and the stage could be all set for you to lose your shit if you don’t watch out! Both Jupiter and Neptune retrograde could provide you with the Zen you need, but that will only be if you can tune out Mercury in Cancer who’ll be trying to rile you up into an emotional, self-righteous frenzy like an ignorant trump supporter. Try to remember the old Taoist proverb, “Strength bides its time, while weakness feels a need to act.”

 

Taurus- A Full Moon conjunct Saturn in your House of Philosophy would make this an ideal week to re-examine whatever isn’t currently working in your life. Mars going retrograde this week in your House of Career could put a damper on a moonlighting venture that was just starting to look like it was gaining some traction, although with Uranus in your sign and aligning with both the Moon and Saturn don’t assume that a setback will be a failure; perhaps you are being re-routed to the back door of success? Both Jupiter and Neptune retrograde in your Houses of Relationships and Dreams respectively could bring back someone from the past who is now in a position to help you negotiate whatever obstacles you may now face; keep the faith!

 

Gemini- The time has come for you to recapitulate a strategy you thought was going to work because, quite frankly, no one is buying it. Gemini is a sign that’s notorious for being shady but don’t believe for one second that repeating something over and over is convincing anybody. Mercury will be moving from emotional Cancer into righteous Leo this week, and there he’ll be confronted by both Mars retrograde and recalcitrant Uranus, who will each have no problem yelling “bullshit” in your face if that’s what you’re peddling! Five retrograde planets during the week may also serve to bring up some additional shit from the past that you probably shouldn’t have said either, thus making this week’s lesson, “tell the truth, it’s the easiest thing to remember.”

 

Cancer- This week’s full Moon will be in your House of Relationships conjunct with authoritative Saturn and aligning with Uranus, the planet of the unexpected. Whatever you thought was going to happen at work or in an extracurricular activity you’re involved with, get ready for a surprise! While things haven’t been changing fast enough for you, you’ve been changing at lightning speed so maybe the time has come for you to catch up with the success you’ve been convinced has eluded you! Jupiter retrograde in your House of Creativity and Neptune retrograde in your House of Philosophy should help you with changing a hidden, insecure attitude that has never served you well so that you can turn an overly polite, self deprecating style of communication into a more confident approach that smacks of the leadership and honor that is at the core of your character. You have brains and talent, don’t be shy, flaunt them!

 

Leo- You are a noble sign so there is a definite limit as to how much crap you can take before you roar back! The sun behind the scenes in sensitive Cancer opposing the Full Moon conjunct with Saturn in your Hose of Work will find you at the end of your rope in a relationship with either a coworker, a boss, or even the entire company you’re employed by. Mars going retrograde in your House of Relationships will have you rethinking your interactions with others over the next couple of months and realizing how isolating yourself from the things that you don’t like has only served to secure you a position holding the shit end of the stick. If you are offended by the way things are then respect your self and either speak up to authority or find a new environment that is more in alignment with your core beliefs.

 

Virgo- If you don’t like what you see going on around you then become the change! With the Sun in sensitive Cancer transiting through your House of Groups and opposing a Full Moon conjunct Saturn in your House of Creativity, turn what’s bothering you into a source of innovation rather than letting it trap you into a sense of sadness or hopelessness. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Communication aligning with Neptune retrograde in your House of relationships would encourage you to share your feelings about any unfairness or injustice you see, there may be more like minded people out there than you might think who will find your expressions inspiring. Mars going retrograde in your House of Work and squaring Uranus in your House of Philosophy could very well be about you getting involved in some form of activism, be willing to upset the apple cart for what you feel is just and honorable.

 

Libra- With Mars going retrograde in your House of Creativity the next couple of months will likely be about reviewing a project you’re involved with and making whatever changes are necessary for it to become the success you have envisioned. On a grander stage, the Full Moon conjunct Saturn in your House of Foundations aligning with Uranus in your House of Transformation is about reading the writing on the wall and getting ahead of the curve in regards to implementing whatever changes have become necessary in regards to your long term growth. You have been a work in progress for a while now and the pieces are pretty much in place for you to start letting the world know you’re there. Jupiter has been retrograde in your House of Earnings for a while and once it goes direct next month expect some well deserved rewards for what you have been working on for the last year to start to appear like the first buds of a magnificent Spring.

 

Scorpio- With Jupiter in your sign now you are feeling very independent, perhaps even like a law unto yourself, yet with the Full Moon meeting up with Saturn in your House of Communications it may be time for you to answer to a greater power, namely responsibility. The Sun passing through your House of Philosophy will have you contemplating something greater than simply your own desires, while Uranus in your House of Relationships may bring some unexpected circumstances your way whereby if you don’t step up someone you care about is really going to be in a pickle. What to do? Your sign rules both saints and sinners so sacrifice is not foreign to you. As a result, Neptune in your House of Creativity will likely help you to choose the highroad and find both innovative and compassionate solutions to whatever those around you may need.

 

Sagittarius- Mars will be going station/retrograde in your House of Communications this week, meaning that if you haven’t been annoyed enough to openly complain about something that’s been bothering you then get ready for that person or situation to get worse as the retrograde of the warrior planet will bring it back into a loose square with volatile Uranus. The Full Moon conjunct Saturn in your House of Self Worth will also be aligning with Uranus, so don’t think ignoring a bully will work, you’ll need to change what they expect of you and a good insult or well documented complaint may work wonders for both the situation and your self esteem. The Sun in sensitive Cancer will be in your House of Transformation opposing the Full Moon and Saturn, so if it turns out you feel guilty about confronting anyone look at it this way, the individual in question has no problem devaluing you as a matter of sport so for you to strike back is effectively an act of self love, therefore, do you and don’t feel guilty.

 

Capricorn- As of late no one has had any problem making demands on your time and energy, however, with this weeks Full Moon conjunct Saturn in your sign and both of them aligning nicely with Uranus in your House of Creativity, what you need to be thinking about now is not what someone else needs, but what do you need? Mars going station/retrograde in your House of Self Worth would suggest that taking time for yourself may garner a dissatisfied response from some quarters, but how many of these squeaky wheels should be doing something for themselves for a change instead of depending on you? Jupiter retrograde in your House of Dreams aligning with Neptune retrograde in your House of Communication would suggest killing with kindness anyone who is taking advantage of you; firstly because it’s more humane, but mostly because these passive/aggressive wimps won’t know how to deal with it.

 

Aquarius- With Mars going station/retrograde this week in your sign it would probably be a good idea to slow your roll, especially with the Full Moon conjuncting Saturn in your House of Confinement and aligning with Uranus in your house of Symbolic Foundations. Allow for the unexpected, which also means let go of your control issues. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career aligning with Neptune in your house of Self Worth could present a problem with you prioritizing what’s important, as your tendency is to make your issues paramount and everyone else’s secondary. In the world of Aquarius such hubris may be true, but the real world has a way of enveloping our illusions and reminding us we are nothing much more than a fish in a fish bowl. The Sun in sensitive Cancer and your House of Work could have you attaching emotional significance to something that’s nothing more than business. Try not to take things personally and you might just get through a difficult situation and manage to hustle another day.

 

Pisces- Mars going station/retrograde in your House of confinement could find you wondering what the world wants from you and worrying if you can manage to provide whatever that may be. Saturn conjunct the Full Moon in your House of Dreams with both of them aligning with Uranus in your house of Communication could refer to some mixed news that will seem both positive and negative at the same time. If you’re not getting what you want from a situation, don’t panic, it doesn’t mean you won’t get something useful out of it eventually. Let Jupiter in your house of Philosophy working with Neptune in your sign help you to find the silver lining in this seemingly dark cloud. If work has been either stressful or burdensome as of late, don’t expect it to get any better as Mercury in your House of Routines pulls into a square with Uranus in your House of Communication. The boss doesn’t care what you think, so just take home your pay and realize you won’t be there forever.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #39 Weekly Horoscopes for 6/4-6/10, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 6/4-6/10, 2018

 

  “I’d sooner, except the penalties, kill a man than a hawk;

but the great redtail

Had nothing left but unable misery

From the bone too shattered for mending, the wing that

Trailed under his talons when

he moved…..

 

  …I gave him the lead gift in the twilight.

What fell was relaxed, Owl-downy, soft feminine feathers; but

what

Soared: the fierce rush: the night-herons by the flooded river

cried fear at its rising

Before it was quite unsheathed from reality.”

 

-Robinson Jeffers

 

 

 Aries- You are standing on a precipice and looking into the distance at where you’d like to be, however, since you’re not there yet how are you dealing with where you are now? Part of the problem might be that you’ve been misinterpreting delays in your forward progress as your goal receding further away, instead of realizing it is more a matter of the speed of your approach. In other words, if a town is a hundred miles away the distance doesn’t change no matter how fast or slow the train goes. With Pluto retrograde in your House of Career and Jupiter retrograde in your House of Transformation, the treasure map you started following at the beginning of the year is still valid. What’s going on now is that when one embarks upon the actual trail to his or her dreams it is no longer about hoping or fantasizing, but rather a matter of dealing with the sorts of illusions that inevitably arise between theory and practice; a dialogue that is playing out now between The Sun and Mercury in your House of Logical Thinking and Neptune in your House of Confinement and Obstacles. As an old Pop Song used to advise, “Just hold on loosely/ But don’t let go/ If you cling too tightly/ You’re gonna lose control.”

 

Taurus- As the attainment of a goal gets closer you could be starting to see how the journey is no longer about what you’re trying to manifest, but rather about how you’ve transformed yourself by becoming what you needed to be in order to succeed. Venus at the bottom of your chart and Pluto at the top would further indicate that this transformation was as much driven by a newfound sense of self-love as by any need for control or material acquisition. The Lunar Arc this week travels through your Houses of Public Image and Dreams where it will then go around to the back door and enter into your sign, meaning that You are on the verge of realizing that you have managed to find yourself by surrendering yourself; congratulations and Namaste!

 

Gemini- You have no idea how people are really seeing you now, which could find you accused of being either a blithering idiot or an arrogant S.O.B. Likewise, you could also end up overestimating yourself, or else be driven to an act of desperation by fearing that you aren’t good enough for a particular person or situation. Oh, the rollercoaster ride of being a Gemini! As Venus transits through the nurturing sign of Cancer and your House of Self Worth to come into an opposition to Pluto, you could also decide to escape your confusion by instead becoming immersed in someone else’s problems. This may satisfy a desire you have to be needed but be careful, someone who is willing to dump on you might very well also have no problem blaming you if  your help doesn’t fix his or her life. In short, try to stay on the down low this week and keep it simple; don’t give any sh*t or take any wooden nickels.

 

Cancer- If the week starts out looking like it’s going to be a re-enactment of the Alamo try to remember not to sweat the small stuff (and it’s all small stuff). Over the last few months some shit has certainly hit the fan, but what you may be overlooking is that you are no longer the same person that drew said shit to yourself. Instead, you have become a Spiritual Warrior/Jedi-Ninja Badass who has managed to find a solution for everything the Universe has thrown at you. Notice as well who is still standing there beside you as the dust from this tragic year begins to settle. If you have love and a little luck then you always stand a chance, no matter what comes down the pike. Remember as well that luck can sometimes come to us in the form of a test, like when the Greek Gods would disguise themselves as unfortunates and then reward those who offered them hospitality and punish those who didn’t. In other words, don’t stop being the good person you are and don’t believe “nice guys finish last.” As the song goes, “If you have a friend on whom you think/ You can rely/ You are a lucky man!/ If you’ve found the reason to live on and/ Not to die/ You are a lucky man!”

 

Leo- With Pluto retrograde in your House of Work and Jupiter retrograde in your House of Foundations, you may be reflecting on your current career status and thinking perhaps you’ve made a wrong turn somewhere. Venus behind the scenes opposing Pluto may be adding to this sense of melancholy, but don’t cue up “Is that All There Is?” just yet. The Sun and Mercury in your House of Dreams could offer up a little inspiration if you’re willing to try, but Neptune in your House of Transformation could also offer up a little hopelessness if you’re willing to indulge in a pity party. Uranus crossing your House of Career would indicate a change is definitely coming, while at the same time Saturn retrograde in your House of Work will be trying to remind you how you arrived where you currently are. So, if you don’t want the new boss to be the same as the old boss, just make sure that you’re starting “TO DO” some things differently to get a different result. Get it? Got it? Good.

 

Virgo- It’s time to make a choice. Doing something just because someone said you can’t may be a good way to say f*ck you, but it is not a recipe for finding your own brand of happiness. Likewise, finding fault with everything will eventually leave you all by yourself with nothing to do. Remember in The Matrix when Smith had Neo in a choke hold on the train tracks and as the train approached Smith commented that the train whistle was “the sound of inevitability…”? Well, for you that train is embodied now by Pluto as it opposes Venus in your House of Dreams and likewise aligns with Jupiter in your House of Communication and Neptune in your House of Partnerships. Without a destination in life all we’ll ever have is a house full of travel brochures laying all over the place. Pick a destination, buy a ticket, take the ride, you’ll have no one to blame or rebel against except yourself. Can you handle that much responsibility? Can you handle that much happiness?

 

Libra- If you’re feeling like a “Rider on the Storm,” don’t despair, just continue driving as carefully as you can through the deluge and keep those high beams on. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Self Worth and Pluto retrograde in your House of Symbolic Foundations represent the distance you’ve traveled and the experience you’ve gained, so with each of these planets in esoteric aspect to the Sun and Mercury in your House of Philosophy, expect some new possibilities to crop up like a rainbow over the drenched landscape. The Lunar Arc this week will travel from your House of Creativity through your Houses of Work, Partnerships, and Transformation, meaning that along with these new possibilities just mentioned you can also expect some new challenges as well, but don’t worry, “Intrepid Traveler,” a wise journeyman like you should be able to come up with some novel solutions from the depths of your well earned wisdom and understanding.

 

Scorpio- A word used to describe something is not the thing itself, which Aleister Crowley pointed out in “Magick in Theory and Practice” when he commented that the letters d-o-g are not an actual dog. With this in mind, it will be very important for you in the coming week to clearly determine the difference between what you think is real and what actually exists. While there are certainly an infinite number of possibilities in the universe, actualities eliminate just about all of them as soon as one makes the choice to eat a veggie burger or ride the subway. Likewise, making additional choices creates myriad new possibilities; therefore, realize that the best way to change your reality is to act on any intention you have about what you’d like to do with it. With the Sun transiting now through your House of Death and Transformation, this is a time when you can clearly see things for what they are, just make sure you’re actually doing something with this info; “Break on Through to the Other Side!”

 

Sagittarius- If you want either an unhappy relationship or an unsatisfying situation to change, it’s important to first realize how you feel you benefit by these circumstances being as they are. Sometimes we allow others to use us because it makes us feel needed. Other times we use others because it makes us feel important, or else we believe we are owed something. Either way, nothing can or will change for the better until you re-evaluate whatever the reward is you think you’re getting that justifies being unhappy. With the Sun and Mercury in your House of Relationships, Pluto retrograde in your House of Self Worth, and Jupiter retrograde behind the scenes, how you think about yourself right now is going to be a strong determinant in how you deal with others, but even more importantly, it’s also going to reveal why they deal with you the way they do. As the Beatles once sang, “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”

 

Capricorn- Responsibilities at work or in a project you’re involved with could increase right now, although before agreeing to expend any more of your time and energy you should first examine the situation and see if more of an effort on your part is really the solution. In other words, make sure that your need to be all things to all people hasn’t become an inappropriate matter of pride that could very well allow some lazy ass to benefit at your expense. I am pointing this out because a Mars/Uranus square in your Houses of Self Worth and Creativity would indicate that overworking yourself at this time could end up being both frustrating and stressful, especially if some of your personal priorities have to be shifted in order to accommodate whatever is being demanded from you. Saturn retrograde is also in your House of Self Worth and as it trines Uranus make sure you remember how unhappy you were the last time you shelved your dreams to take care of something that was ultimately another’s responsibility…  “I remember when the darkness doubled, and lightning struck itself…”

 

Aquarius- With the Sun and Gemini passing through your House of Creativity and entering into an esoteric alignment with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career and Pluto retrograde behind the scenes, you need to be careful now not to allow yourself to get caught up in other peoples excitement, especially if it plays to your need to be loved and admired in exchange for promising something you just won’t be able to deliver. Neptune in your House of Self Worth could contribute to such hubris if you let it, so try to be vigilant and don’t allow yourself to get talked into trying to be superman. Ego or pride can be far more dangerous than kryptonite, so beware. In the meantime, a Pluto/Venus opposition squared by the Moon in Aries midweek could find you in hot water at work if you don’t watch your mouth with a fellow employee, or even the boss. Uranus having just entered your House of Symbolic Foundations to square Mars in your sign may have you feeling you oats, just don’t think you’re more of a thoroughbred than you are or you could end up as dog food before you know it.

 

Pisces- If you have been letting your responsibilities slide either at work or on the home front, you could get a rude awakening as circumstances suddenly take an inconvenient or even downright embarrassing turn. This could come in the form of an unexpected attack from someone you didn’t even realize was mad as Uranus in your House of Communication squares Mars behind the scenes. How could they feel this way, you’ll think to yourself as they scream, “how could you do this to me?” Of course you will be able to apologize your way out of this due to the fact that Jupiter retrograde aligning with Neptune will help them to remember that you are really nice even if you’re more than a little flakey. On the other hand, with Saturn retrograde squaring an Aries Moon in the middle of the week, you better remember to make a note on your “to do” list to seriously work on whatever it was that may have upset someone, or else you may have to hire a full-time bodyguard; just saying.

Special Uranus Entering Taurus Edition

 

 My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.”

-Rumi

 

Hi kids!!! Are you ready for something completely unexpected? Well buckle your seat belts because Uranus is changing his Astrological base of operations this week for the first time in approximately 8 years! Let’s take a look at what that might mean for each of the 12 Zodiac Signs for the rest of the coming year.

 

An Overview of Uranus in Taurus

 It takes approximately 84 years for Uranus to travel around the entire Zodiac, meaning that it will spend roughly 7 years transiting through each sign. The last time that Uranus was in the sign of Taurus was during the period between June 7, 1934 and May 15, 1942, at which time the world witnessed the rise of fascism in Europe that eventually lead to the outbreak of the Second World War in 1939.

In looking back, the volatility of the events that occurred during the last time Uranus was in Taurus makes perfect sense when one considers that Taurus is a Fixed Earth sign usually associated with the status quo, while Uranus is a planet whose archetypal symbolism is commonly linked to resistance, rebellion, revolution, and the unexpected. In other words, Uranus entering Taurus would be a perfect example of an irresistible force meeting an immovable object. With this in mind, it can only make one shudder to contemplate the current World situation with such a volatile planet returning once again to such a complacent sign. For example, there are the ongoing tensions between Syria, Iran, and Israel in the Middle East, the chest thumping between North Korea and the U.S. involving the former country’s Nuclear Weapons Program, as well as the impending Constitutional Crisis facing us here in the U.S. as our current President and his associates face the possibility of criminal charges. And if all of that weren’t enough, there is also the situation here at home where the policies of our government seem to be driven by the exact same sort of dark xenophobia, racism, sexism, and fascism, that existed in Nazi Germany during the 1930’s when Uranus was last in Taurus.  If we like to think of ourselves as the leading country of the world, exactly where will be leading the rest of the globe once Uranus starts to work its inevitable Chaos Magick on us all?

Uranus as an Archetype

 Because Uranus predominantly represents that which is unexpected and ultimately uncontrollable, it is often hard to determine exactly how the affects of this volatile planet will be felt.

In my experience Uranus usually provides whatever is necessary to shock us out of our complacency. For instance, if you’re naturally an adventurous person Uranus may bring about disastrous results to your usual carefree actions as a way of teaching you to be more responsible (if that seems contradictory then welcome to the world of Uranus). On the other hand, if you’re an overly cautious person then Uranus may instead throw a wrench in the works that will force you to improvise in the face of unforeseen circumstances.

As an archetype Uranus represents the opposite of the control and organization usually associated with Saturn. It is therefore interesting to note that as Uranus enters the sign of Taurus it will be approaching a positive alignment with Saturn, which is currently retrograde in the sign of Capricorn. This alignment will find both of these planets in stable Earth Signs (Taurus and Capricorn) and though their aspect to one another will not be exact at this time, they will come within 1 degree of each other as Saturn approaches its station/direct period and Uranus approaches a station/retrograde. It is my opinion that during this coming summer all of us to some degree or other will see our comfort zones forcibly expanded and, as a result, both our anxiety and creativity levels will probably end up rising simultaneously. Effectively this represents the cauldron of evolution at its spiciest, so get ready for your reality to be served up piping hot, whether you like it or not.

How Will Uranus in Taurus Affect Each Sign in 2018?

 During 2018 Uranus will be in the sign of Taurus from May 15 to November 6 before it passes back into the Sign of Aries, where it will remain until March 6 of 2019. Even though it is just a few days short of 6 months, the initial transit of Uranus into Taurus in 2018 will nevertheless be a valuable harbinger of what we can look forward to as the planet of the unexpected continues its engagement with us over the next 8 years.

 

Aries- The entrance of Uranus into your House of Self Worth will signal the start of an inner revolution that could either lead you forward to maturity and success, or back into the rebellious follies of youth where your insecurities get dressed up as a disdain for things you only pretend not to care about. A lot of how this will play out will no doubt have to do with Saturn’s position in your House of Career and Public Image, which will likely present you with both the lessons and punishments of authority. How you negotiate this whole process will depend to a great extent on whether you’re looking at it from the position of an adult or a smart-ass kid: either way it’s up to you. Money could also come quite unexpectedly at this time, just make sure that you invest a decent amount of whatever windfalls may arrive rather than just spending it all like a drunken sailor.

 

Taurus- Not only will Uranus enter your sign this week but there will also be a New Moon in Taurus as well, meaning that if anybody is talking about you they’re also “Talkin’ about a Revolution” (although more along the lines of a revolution in style rather than Concord Green or The Bastille).  At first this revolution stuff might feel awkward because you really are a peaceful soul who just wants everyone to feel safe and comfortable, however, with Uranus acting like a red flag that’s meant to turn the motherly cow in you into a raging bull ready to charge ahead, you might end up scaring not only yourself but others as well. Moving to a far off place could also be a distinct possibility, which very well might be healthy in the long run as long you don’t totally abandon all caution to the wind. In other words, don’t get too carried away by the crowd yelling , “Ole’’, only to find out that they weren’t rooting for the bull but the matador and you’re stuck….ouch!

 

Gemini- Uranus will be slipping behind the scenes in your chart when it enters into Taurus, which could turn out to be either an angel or a devil whispering in your ear depending on what your anxiety level is at that particular moment. Saturn will be in your House of Transformation at the same time, meaning a review of your control and/or boundary issues will likely be going on that could put you on a real emotional roller coaster as you struggle with how to play with the other children so that everyone has fun and not just you or them. Joint finances with a partner could also become an issue, with one or both of you possibly experiencing a change of income. Remember, it’s easy to think of a Uranian shock as threatening until you see what previously unknown super powers it brings out in you. Surprise!!!

 

Cancer- When Uranus moves into Taurus it will be entering your House of Groups and Friends, which could signal both sudden endings and beginnings as some familiar people unexpectedly leave your life and new ones arrive to take their place. Saturn will also be in your House of Partnerships at this time, so even though some of these departures may leave you feeling either sad or wronged, the truth is that in order to insure your long-term positive growth all of these people who disappeared had to go in order for more beneficial individuals to enter your life. The House in your chart where Uranus will be entering during its stint in Taurus is also sometimes referred to as the House of Dreams, so realize as well that if you’re willing to let go of what no longer works in your life you could inadvertently be setting the stage for some long held fantasies to finally come true. What may have seemed familiar and comfortable in the past might actually have turned into what is blocking some real luck from finding you now.

 

Leo- If you haven’t noticed the writing on the wall yet then Uranus entering your House of Career may just have to get your ass fired or have the company you work for go out of business so that you’ll be motivated to find a better situation. I know it’s a shock, but that’s how Uranus rolls and with Saturn backing him up from your House of Work you need to understand you were not long for this situation anyway. It may have once filled a need, but now Uranus is going to show you some brand new needs you didn’t even realize you had! This is called evolution and with growth comes growing pains, so get ready to deal with something you have previously avoided like it was a disease, namely responsibility. Maybe Uranus is ripping you from your comfortable womb so that you can be born into your true destiny? After all, if you’ve failed at settling for being unsuccessful then there’s nothing for you to lose, so pay the ticket and take the ride. You’re off to see the Wizard!

 

Virgo- Jelaluddin Rumi (the author of this weeks quote for Mr. Saturn #36) was a successful scholar until he met the wandering Dervish Shams of Tabriz, whereby he had his head and heart turned around and ended up becoming perhaps the World’s greatest Mystical Poet. I tell you this because when Uranus enters Taurus it will be moving into your House of Philosophy (and aligning with Saturn in your House of Creativity) where it will perhaps do for you what Shams did for Rumi. Of course there’s a flip side to this, while Rumi left what he thought were his responsibilities behind in order to follow his new love, he nevertheless found out quickly enough that the freedom Shams was offering required him to be even more responsible because now he was harmonizing with the whole Universe and not just his own little ego and the demands of others. In other words, Uranus will be opening up your world, are you ready for the experience and, no doubt, the extra work and responsibility?

 

Libra- From where do our thoughts originate?We each experience consciousness, but what is it? Certainly our intuition and inspiration are not just from the fleshy pulp inside our heads? Uranus will be entering your House of Death and Transformation this week, so expect that whatever you thought about life leading up to this moment will not be the same afterwards. The House of Transformation represents our individual link to the regenerative energy of the Universe, a power that is also at the root of money, sex, and creativity. Therefore, have the courage to embrace whatever you feel you need to do. As long as you are honest and honor the process you have embarked upon, you and yours will manage to get whatever you need, you just won’t know how or when until you do. This could be quite harrowing, but there you have it. Uranus is a Cosmic Joker for sure, but for this part of your life he’ll be laughing with you, not at you. If you manage not to be frightened of the unknown, you could be quite successful.

 

Scorpio- As Uranus enters your House of Partnerships and aligns with Saturn in your House of Communication, expect the way you usually deal with people to be entirely transformed. Because Uranus has an uncanny way of getting in our faces, at the start of this transit it may seem as though your normal boundaries are being assaulted. At first this may surprise you, but whatever your natural reaction may be, just let it happen and then make careful note of the results. One of the things you may discover is how much you inadvertently acquiesce to the will of others (this may be especially true with family members). Uranus’s M.O. is to put us in situations where we are forced to be ourselves because nothing else will work. Of course there is also the possibility that certain relationships may end during this period, maybe even some you thought were rock solid. If that’s turns out to be the case, perhaps what you mistook for solidity was really just the other person’s inflexible expectations about who you should be regardless of how you may feel about it. In short, get ready to meet some new friends (and lovers) who will like you for who you are and not for what you can do for them.

 

Sagittarius- Uranus will be entering your House of Work so get ready for some big changes on the job front. There are so many things wrong there right now that it’s hard to say which straw will be the one that breaks the camel’s back. Saturn is in your House of Self Worth, so at the risk of stating the obvious I would probably venture to say you’re most likely not getting paid anywhere near what you’re worth. This is more than a little bit your fault, mostly because you’re overqualified for where you are and all the underachievers who surround you know that all they have to do is play stupid and you’ll fix whatever it is. Accept that the time has come to be driven from your comfort zone in the same way that babies have to be born, simply because there is no longer any space left for growth. Uranus is in good aspect to Saturn now, so make sure you are paying special attention to all the insights that are starting to flit through your head like butterflies. Once upon a time they were caterpillars just like you.

 

Capricorn- Sometimes creating something can be a leisurely affair, but more often than not our creativity ends up being stimulated by unexpected circumstances whose primary purpose is to move us along on our evolutionary path. With Uranus transiting through your House of Creativity you will likely be bombarded by, discover, and even at times trip over more ideas and insights than you can likely imagine at this point, which just means life will probably be more hectic and stimulating than you probably think you can handle. Well don’t you believe it! We only use a fraction of our consciousness in our daily life and if we can increase that by merely another fraction we’d be entering into the realm of Saints and Geniuses. Are you ready to be part of that select group? Are you ready for something completely different? As the Monty Python Boys used to say, “No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!!!” No one expects their enlightenment either until one day they realize that it’s been inside them all along.

 

Aquarius- As Uranus enters into the lowest area of your chart, (otherwise known as the House of Symbolic Foundations) get ready for your world to start spinning around like a pack of first graders playing musical chairs after being fed too much sugar. There’ll be pushing and giggling, maybe one of them will even stumble, and then it will all be fun and games until someone pokes out an eye. Of course if there’s a responsible teacher present it doesn’t have to play out that way, which is precisely the role Mr. Saturn will play as he observes through the door like the Principal passing by out in the hallway. I have used this grade school metaphor because the unexpected qualities associated with Uranus can make us all feel like children trapped in a mysterious and frightening world where no one knows what will happen next. Keep in mind though that Uranus is the ruler of your sign, so if there’s anyone who can roll with the unexpected it’s you Aquarian folk, especially since you inflict the rest of us with your natural Uranian presences as often as you can get away with it. Still, don’t be surprised by anything that may happen now, up to and including a cross country move, a complete career change, or even an unexpected divorce or marriage as Uranus stampedes through your life like a herd of cattle.

 

Pisces- We are all limited by what we think until something happens that requires us to use a new part of our brain. Some people would call this process living a creative or even a mystical life, while others might diagnose such a frame of mind as being delusional or even insane. Depending on what you believe, here comes Uranus entering into your House of Thinking and Ideas where you’re about to experience first hand what Alice felt as she tumbled down the rabbit hole. Up will be down and left will be right and things you’ve never seen before will suddenly seem eerily familiar as your true self emerges out of a mundane world of limited opinions and into a Universe of true knowledge and experience. During this time Saturn will be passing through your House of Groups and Friends, so as this strange trip continues you will discover the usefulness of your uniqueness and the practicality of your mistakes. And of course, things will just keep getting curiouser and curiouser.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #35 Weekly Horoscopes for 5/7-5/13, 2018

 

Weekly Horoscopes for 5/7-5/13, 2018

 

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

 

Martha: Truth or illusion, George; you don’t know the difference.

George: No, but we must carry on as though we did.

Martha: Amen.

-Edward Albee “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf “

 

Aries- Don’t take anything for granted this week when it comes to communications. Venus will be passing through that area for you and she’ll be in a hard angle to Neptune behind the scenes, meaning that misunderstandings, misstatements, tall tales, and even out right f*cking lies will all be par for the course. Mercury squaring Pluto to start the week should be of some help amidst all the mendacity, especially as these two tend to come out swinging for the truth whenever they get a chance. Make sure you keep your nose clean so that all the right people end up getting hit and you’re not one of them. By weeks end Mars will be pulling into a square with Uranus, which could see you stressing about everything that’s happened over the last few days, especially if you didn’t do anything about it or took it too seriously. Jupiter closing in on Neptune should help you to calm down if you’re willing to get away by yourself and put things back into perspective. Repeat after me, “Aum.”

 

Taurus- You’re feeling Uber responsible now as the Sun in your sign is aligning with both Pluto and Mars in Capricorn as they transit your House of Philosophy. Neptune in your House of Dreams is also in alignment with those Capricorn Planets and whenever Mr. Fog is involved it is always important to make sure that your hopes are copasetic with what is actually happening. Venus is in your House of Earnings and that’s generally a good thing, however, because the planet of money is also squaring Neptune make sure that whatever you’ve spent in regards to a group project will be coming back to you, especially if you’ve been investing time and emotion as well as your money. Mars approaching a square to Uranus at the end of the week could be making you anxious about an upcoming trip, don’t let anyone make you feel silly for taking some extra precautions to make sure you’ll have everything you need, better safe than sorry.

 

Gemini- With Venus in your sign charm is most definitely on your side this month and you’re feeling quite cooperative, just don’t let anyone get the idea that you’re a pushover. Mercury squaring Pluto could serve to expose some shady dealings involving a group or project that you’re involved in, so make sure your hands are clean because your reputation could suffer through guilt by association. If you have been overlooked at work you’ll likely find yourself coming up with an idea or two now that could gain you some long overdue recognition and maybe even some extra do-re-mi as well before things are done. Jupiter retrograde may be bringing up some old issues and you could find yourself revisiting some basic power struggles either at work or in a relationship. If you’re not that person anymore then make sure you don’t screw yourself by making the same old choices that brought you down before.

 

Cancer- Venus behind the scenes squaring Neptune in your House of Philosophy might have you expecting the worst of people, especially if you’re going to be dealing with individuals who have been a pain in the ass before. A word to the wise, don’t let these people determine the rules of engagement. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Creativity opposing the Sun in your House of Groups will help you process any difficult lessons from the past so that you can transform them into a winning strategy for the future. Mars and Pluto in your House of Partnerships are in a testy square with Mercury in Aries and your House of Career, meaning don’t be shy, ask for what you deserve and you shall receive it, especially if you’ll be facing off with an old adversary who’ll probably end up shooting themselves in the foot because they’ll make the mistake of seriously underestimating the new you.

 

Leo- Be careful what you wish for as Neptune transits your House of Transformation and squares Venus in your House of Dreams. Ambition will be high as the Sun moves through your House of Career and opposes Jupiter retrograde at the foundation of your chart, which could make you gullible and open to being manipulated either by flattery or false promises. Saturn, Pluto, and Mars together in your House of Work add a very necessary grounding now as they stress hard work and responsibility as the way to success rather than relying too heavily on the smoke and mirrors of any sort of get rich quick sorcery. This is especially true as Mercury and Uranus in Aries move into squares to a pair of those planets I just mentioned in your House of Work, namely Pluto and Mars respectively. The message you should take away from all this is think innovatively but act conservatively, at least for the time being and you won’t be sorry.

 

Virgo- Be careful of a partner’s advice; they don’t necessarily want you to fail, but success on your terms would change the dynamic of the relationship and threaten their sense of control. You will also need to re-examine your own comfort zone if you feel that you can’t move forward creatively or professionally without their approval. Mercury in your House of Transformation angling against Pluto in your House of Creativity will bring this power struggle out as the week begins, followed by Neptune in your House of Partnerships squaring Venus in your House of Career forcing you to each re-consider what would be lost or gained if the relationship started to operate with a different philosophical approach. Mercury squaring Uranus to end the week could have you looking across a battlefield at each other, but for the time being if you can manage to agree to disagree things will eventually transform for the better.

 

Libra- As Venus in your House of Philosophy squares Neptune in your House of Daily Routines, this could be the time when you finally recognize how you can be your own worst enemy. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Self Worth opposing the Sun in your House of Transformation will be a tremendous help with this, as each of them in turn will align with Pluto retrograde at the Foundation of your chart, all of this together signaling an inevitable realignment of not only what you see when you look in the mirror, but also what you think others see when you allow them to be that mirror. Both Mercury and Uranus in your House of Relationships will also be entering into squares with Pluto and Mars respectively in your House of Symbolic Foundations, meaning that the time has come for you to recognize just how much of your intended iconoclasm is really just a hidden fear of failure that assumes you can only get to the top by giving someone or something the power of approval over you; ironic, huh?

 

Scorpio- For weeks now my Scorpion friend I have been hinting that a romance awaits you due to the fact that Neptune has been lingering seductively for some time now in your House of Romance. Well, now I’m going to suggest that for the time being you should try to be careful in your involvements. Why? Because Venus is now transiting through your House of Sex and she is in harsh angle to Neptune, meaning that there is a distinct possibility that simple sexual attraction could be mistaken for love, especially since a Taurus Sun now passing through your House of Relationships is thinking “commitment” while the other person seducing you could be thinking simply, “hit and run. “ Mercury squaring Pluto at the beginning of the week and Mars squaring Uranus at the end of the week could both speak to subterfuge, dishonesty, and a resulting surprise that could be more volatile than satisfying. As a result, be careful and make sure that’s whatever is being offered in the way of romance is something that will truly thrill your heart and not just somewhere else situated a little lower.

 

Sagittarius- Take any promises that are made to you now with a grain of salt, particularly if what is being offered insinuates there may be strings attached and no clear parameters have been set as to what is expected. Venus in your House of Relationships will have you feeling very cooperative, but the fact that she’s squaring Neptune brings in a strong likelihood of illusion and secrecy in any one on one interactions this week (particularly if they occur behind the scenes, as Jupiter, the planet of excess is there). Mercury squaring Pluto at the beginning of the week and Mars squaring Uranus at the week’s end together speak to clandestine agendas and volatile reactions when someone realizes they’ve been had; try to make sure that someone isn’t you. The Sun in your House of Work aligning with Pluto in your House of Self Worth could see you benefitting from letting go of something; perhaps it should be your need to be all things to all people.

 

Capricorn- Misunderstandings or miscommunications at work could stem from either you having unreasonable expectations about the timetable for something that needs to be done, or else someone has purposely been misleading you about exactly how much needs to be done. No matter what the case, make sure you don’t try to rush through something just because you’d rather not be doing it in the first place. Mercury squaring Pluto to start the week should make you feel like you want to get to the bottom of exactly what’s going on, while Mars squaring Uranus at the end of the week could represent an unwelcome surprise that you simply aren’t prepared for. The Sun in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune in the House of Ideas could help you to think outside the box, so make sure you take it slow and pay attention, but most importantly, don’t take anything for granted.

 

Aquarius- You are feeling an almost desperate need to expand at this time as a result of being convinced that you have exhausted all the possibilities in your current situation. However, with the Sun transiting through your House of Foundations and aligning nicely with Neptune in your House of Self Worth, it will be your ability to mutate rather than a compulsion to burn bridges that will hold the answers you need right now. In other words, a willingness to try a new way of doing something familiar may prove to be more valuable than giving up on what you have to search out something completely new. Mercury in your House of Ideas squaring Pluto behind the scenes is about innovation and approaching something differently than you have in the past, while Mars squaring Uranus later in the week will be about letting the situation guide you rather than trying to control everything that may happen. It’s important for you to realize right now that it’s about tweeking what you have, not charging out to discover something that may not exist just yet.

 

Pisces- The frustration you are experiencing right now is along the lines of “irresistible force meets immovable object.” The actual manifestation of this dynamic will come into play early in the week when Mercury in your House of Self Worth squares Pluto in your House of Dreams and you are forced to see precisely what is in your way despite what you may have been feeling to the contrary. Later in the week will be when the frustration regarding your situation will really hit, as Mars in your House of Dreams squares Uranus in your House of Self Worth. You will undoubtedly be angry so make sure you find a way to channel your angst so that you don’t end up shooting yourself in the foot or burning a bridge you can’t reconstruct. The good news is that the Sun moving through your House of Ideas is aligning nicely with Neptune in your sign, meaning that if you can calm down then your natural intuition and creativity should come up with something innovative that will allow to live to fight another day.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #34 Weekly Horoscopes for 4/30-5/6, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 4/30-5/6, 2018

 

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

 

“There is only one plot- things are not what they seem.”

-Jim Thompson

 

“A raven’s call from

A nearby tree lingers like

A premonition”

-The Exalted Man

 

Aries- What do you want to believe? Venus in your House of Mental Activity in a harsh angle to Neptune behind the scenes will have you coming up with whatever you need to justify anything you want, however, Mercury in your sign moving into a square with Pluto might foil your best constructed fantasies by acting like a whistleblower who knows where all the bodies are buried. A Taurus Sun also aligning with Neptune would further suggest it is easier to create a solution for just about anything if you’re honest with yourself rather than trying to concoct a series of fabrications to avoid what you fear. Venus inconjunct a retrograde Saturn will probably have the last word here and it will likely be something along the lines of; “When you ain’t got nothing, you got nothing to lose, you’re invisible now, you’ve got no secrets to conceal.” So what are you worrying about?

 

Taurus- The Sun in your sign coming into alignment with Neptune in your House of Dreams could see you willing to invest a great deal into a developing project, while Venus in your House of Self Worth will likely cause you to overlook what there may be to lose in this situation. With Mercury behind the scenes in a harsh aspect to Pluto in your House of Philosophy make sure that you pursue your due diligence in this matter and be certain that what you’ve been told is the real deal. Mars in your House of Long Distance matters approaching a square to Uranus will be yelling “surprise” when you least expect it, hopefully it won’t involve having to rethink (or, God forbid re-do) anything you thought was already done and delivered, or even worse, bought and paid for.

 

Gemini- You have some great ideas now but be careful about what you’re willing to compromise to make them come true. Mercury in the sign of Aries and your House of Dreams will give you all the success you’d want, although because the Messenger Planet is also moving into a square with Pluto in your House of Transformation be sure that your soul hasn’t been surreptitiously added to the purchase price of your time and effort. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Work is also aligning with Pluto and this should guarantee rewards for your efforts, just make sure those rewards are an accurate reflection of how much you think you’re worth and not simply what someone else is willing to pay. Don’t be someone else’s deal of the century just because you’re more worried about being nice.

 

Cancer- The danger now with Neptune in your House of Philosophy squaring Venus behind the scenes is that you will doubt yourself unnecessarily in regards to your ability to weather adversity, whether it be a simple case of not getting what you want when you want it, or having to work through a situation involving some very intractable and recalcitrant people. A good rule of thumb to follow would be let folks say what they say, but know what you know. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Creativity is still aligning with Pluto as well as getting closer to Neptune everyday, meaning that it is important to realize that no matter what the circumstances, patience must always begin by first being patient with yourself. That way your destiny will always be more than your fear if you’re willing to look your fear in the eye.

 

Leo- With Venus in your House of Dreams clashing with Neptune in your House of Transformation, make sure that you’re not seeing someone for who they were rather than who they are now. For a fixed sign like yourself this could be a harsh realization, especially if this is a partnership that you’ve invested a lot of yourself in. I would like to be able to say that if you’re willing to be honest about what’s really going on they will too, but that isn’t the case. Their denial and inflexibility may shock you. Just make sure that by feeling sorry for them you’re not inadvertently enabling their agenda. They may try to devalue the unhappiness you’re feeling at their behavior by justifying their manipulations and dishonesty as necessary, but don’t let this self-absorbed whiner off the hook. See if they love you enough to admit what they’re doing and change.

 

Virgo- It’s time to examine the significant relationships in your life, both personal and professional. With Venus traveling through your House of Career in hard angle to Neptune in your House of Partnerships, be careful of trying to be all things to all people. Likewise, don’t be so willing to reveal your personal business to any inquisitive new acquaintances. The Sun in your House of Philosophy is also interacting with Neptune, as well as slowly moving into an alignment with Jupiter in your House of Communications, meaning that honest and open dialogue with any significant others will be critical at this time, especially if you need to speak up and tell a partner they are pushing you too hard or else have crossed a line. Let Saturn in your House of Creativity and Mercury in your House of Transformation help you to find the cojonesif someone you work with is ego tripping a little too much and needs to get a piece of your mind.

 

Libra- There are three major planets in the sign of Capricorn right now and they are all transiting across the bottom of your chart in what would be your House of Home and Foundations. Saturn represents the Natural Order, Mars is Action, and Pluto is Transformation, meaning it would be safe to say that you have reached a crossroads in your life where the landscape around you is spinning and all the cardinal points on the horizon have completely changed. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Self Worth is aligning with both Pluto and Mars, so you can bet any coming changes will be deep. At the same time the Sun in your House of Transformation along with Mercury moving into a square with Pluto should help to illuminate whatever depths you have been exploring for that elusive Grail of satisfaction and success.

 

Scorpio- Whether you want it or not, a leadership role could be thrust upon you now and your ability to deliver what’s necessary will end up affecting a lot more than you currently realize. Jupiter retrograde in your sign aligning with both Mars and Pluto in your House of Communications would indicate that your reticence to accept this responsibility is precisely what qualifies you to have it, meaning this can’t be about ego, it has to be about being respected, which you are! As Venus squares Neptune you may initially feel at a loss as to how you should handle this, but as a stable Taurus Sun aligns with Neptune you will come up with an idea or two that may amaze not only you, but others as well. As Mercury ends the week squaring Pluto some interesting secrets could be revealed, not the least of which will be that you are the leader this situation always needed.

 

Sagittarius-William S. Burroughs wrote in his novel, “Naked Lunch,” “Nothing is true; everything is permitted.” With this in mind, you should be aware that whatever you may want (or not) right now should be based on your beliefs and not on whatever the supposed rules may state. In other words, you can leave a bad situation and choose something better, tell a family member “no”, or improve your self in any way you see fit, simply because there is nothing that say’s you can’t if you’re willing to bear the responsibility. Mercury in the sign of Aries and your House of Creativity is chomping at the bit to get going on this, but Saturn in your House of Self Worth is saying, “Wait a minute, not so fast.” Now Saturn could be reminding you of your duties, but what if he’s really just answering an arbitrary “because” to your sincere “Why?” Perhaps you should let Jupiter behind the scenes aligning with both Pluto and Neptune inspire you to respond with a resounding “Why not!” and go for it, whatever “it” may be.

 

Capricorn- With Saturn, Mars, and Pluto all in your sign the theme for you now is discipline, direction and organization. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Dreams has been working with these energies for a while and certain ambitions you have long held as nothing more than hopes or fantasies are now

visible on the horizon as viable realities. The Sun in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune in your House of Communication will further illuminate these possibilities, as you will likely be brimming with ideas (and perhaps even visions) this week. Mercury transiting your House of Foundations is pushing you to make room in your world for all the things you are now believing are possible, while in the meantime Saturn in your sign is saying, “Everything you want is certainly doable, just make sure you’re willing to walk the walk and not just talk the talk in order to make all this stuff happen.”

 

Aquarius- I know life is hard now but an unwillingness to fully acknowledge your circumstances could mean you’re not realizing the challenges in front of you aren’t meant to be insurmountable obstacles, but rather stimulants for evolution. Mercury in Aries is not making this any easier by squaring Saturn behind the scenes and turning what could have been some real creative torque into something that instead probably feels like a frustrating uphill battle. The saving grace here though could be Jupiter retrograde as he tries to reverse engineer with Pluto and Mars a new recipe for success in your House of Career and Public Image. The Sun moving through your House of Symbolic Foundations and aligning with Neptune in your House of Self Worth is a very good omen as well, likely symbolizing that a new you is on the horizon and soon it will be time to roll away the stone and resurrect into a new life.

 

Pisces- Right now it is necessary to acknowledge the instability in your life if you sincerely want to ever get past it, even if Venus in the sign of Gemini and your House of Foundations has you feeling that you can skirt any difficult issues and Mercury in your House of Self Worth is telling you to simply hit the highway and run. Try instead to hear Saturn, Mars, and Pluto in your House of Groups as they act like a revolutionary militia to try to get you to dig in and face the music by suggesting that if criticisms have been leveled at you then either meet them head on and refute them as untrue, or else learn from what you have done and improve the situation. Jupiter retrograde in the sign of Scorpio and your House of  Philosophy is also involved here as he works along with his buddies Saturn, Mars, and Pluto to instill within you the ethics of honor and responsibility. If you are willing to listen to the deep inner wisdom of these Spiritual Warriors then you will likely find the answers to the problems that are currently plaguing you.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #33 Weekly Horoscopes for 4/23-4/29, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 4/23-4/29, 2018

 

Hi kids!!! Glad to have you back.

 

“I do not know which to prefer,

The beauty of inflections

Or the beauty of innuendoes,

The blackbird whistling

Or just after. “

-Wallace Stevens

 

Aries- This week will no doubt begin with you feeling quite impatient as Mercury in your sign enters into a square with Saturn retrograde in your House of Career. Before you indulge your frustration first ask yourself a simple question, are you annoyed because you won’t get what you want, or are you just ticked off because you’re not getting it right now? Pluto retrograde is also traveling through your House of Career, where it is conjunct with Mars and aligning with Jupiter retrograde, a further indication that while things are certainly percolating any future accomplishments are likely on a slow simmer rather than a high boil for now. The Full Moon in Scorpio over the weekend will be in your House of Legacies where it will also combine with Mr. Saturn in your House of Career, meaning you need to realize what’s meant to be yours will be yours and learning to be patient with that understanding is called “confidence.”

 

Taurus- As the Sun in your sign approaches a strong elementary alignment with Saturn retrograde in your House of Philosophy, the time is coming for you to commit to a serious course of action in either a business or romantic partnership. This is further supported by the fact that both Mars and Pluto, which are also in your House of Philosophy, are aligning with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Partnerships, meaning that the ultimate purpose of this association is for you to grow significantly beyond what you can currently accomplish on your own.As a result, don’t try to assess the possible future rewards of any commitment you make now, especially since Neptune in your House of Dreams would indicate that you really won’t know what you’ll actually need from a commitment until you make it. Think of The Fool of the Tarot as he starts the journey of the Major Arcana by walking off a cliff; only after that can he come to realize his inner Magician and Priestess. Comprende?

 

Gemini- The misconception about a tidal wave is that it happens suddenly with no advance indication, when in actuality the initial disturbance occurs deep in the ocean long before the fact and then slowly builds momentum under the surface until its force becomes overwhelming. There is a metaphor here if you look closely and it could serve to explain a change this week at work that might seem like a complete surprise when it happens. At the end of the week The Sun behind the scenes will light up a Scorpio Moon in your House of Work to reveal who has been doing what on the job as well as who hasn’t been doing shit. Leading up to that Mars and Pluto aligning with Jupiter will bring your efforts up for review, which will happen because someone who should have kept their mouth shut doesn’t and their foot (as well as yours) should fit quite nicely in their pie hole. And justice for all… Amen!!!

 

Cancer- The Sun/Full Moon axis that concludes the week will occur for you in the Houses of Creativity and Dreams. If you have been working toward something meaningful in either your personal or professional life you could see a major break through now, though not necessarily a conclusion just yet. Leading up to this Mercury in your House of Career will Square Saturn in your House of Partnerships (and open enemies) meaning someone else’s faux pas could end up opening an unexpected door for you. Next a Pluto and Mars combo aligns with Jupiter retrograde (also in your House of Creativity) so you should have no problem knowing exactly what to do with any advantage you’ve been given. By the time the Full Moon does occur it will be aligning with Saturn retrograde back in your House of Partnership and Enemies, meaning that the joke will be on whoever underestimated your capabilities. Mess with the best you die like the rest.

 

Leo- Viva La Revolucion!  Mercury in the rebellious sign of Aries and your House of Philosophy is squaring authoritarian Saturn in your House of Work…Holy Jimmy Hoffa Batman!!! You’re ready to take on the boss, the company, and anyone else who tries to peddle injustice. Pluto aligning with Jupiter would speak to this being a long suffering situation, which is undoubtedly why you’re willing to stand up. When charming Venus enters social Gemini mid-week you should be able to gain some support for your cause, just remember to keep it light, after all no one likes a righteous rant. Think of Colbert mocking Rump and you’ll have the right sort of approach to an affective revolutionary philosophy.

 

Virgo- It is said that if partners agree on everything then one of them is redundant. Mercury in Aries squaring Saturn in your House of Creativity would mean that you’re probably going to have to push for what you want in a partnership, although not like you’ve done in the past when you didn’t get your way. This time with Pluto and Mars in Capricorn aligning with Jupiter in your House of Communication it’s won’t be necessary for you to get loud (and then apologize) instead you must be absolutely committed to your vision. And it doesn’t have to be a perfect vision (the other person’s certainly isn’t) it just has to be fair and equitable for everyone involved. The Full Moon in Scorpio to end the week will be aligning with Saturn, so if you can keep your cool (Venus entering Gemini mid-week should help with that) and remember to “talk softly but carry a big stick,” y’all should be fine.

 

Libra- Even though nothing seems to be changing much, don’t let yourself fall into the mindset of “same shit, different day.” The foundations you are establishing now are being constructed from the inside out, meaning that your circumstances cannot meaningfully change until you do and if you think back to where you were 6 months ago you have changed quite a bit. So stop worrying, things will be looking different before you know it. With Saturn, Mars, and Pluto all in your House of Symbolic Foundations, Saturn squaring Mercury and the other two working positively with Jupiter retrograde, the tumblers are slowly but surely coming into alignment to unlock you from the inertia you’ve been feeling trapped in. The Sun transiting your House of Transformation should also be of help here as it lights up a Full Scorpio Moon over the weekend in your House of Self Worth.  Your stock should be rising sooner than you think and you could be feeling “Born Again,” though hopefully not in the evangelical sense….lol!!

 

Scorpio- You are very much a creature of routine so therefore you also have more than a few control issues. Mercury in your House of Daily Activities squaring Saturn this week could represent some demands being put on you that will take you out of your usual groove. Jupiter retrograde in your sign aligning with Mars and Pluto will likely see you putting the pedal to the metal to overcome any such disturbances in your well ordered universe and you will likely succeed, but at what cost? Make sure you take some time to rest and enjoy yourself no matter what’s going on, especially since there will be a Full Moon in your sign over the weekend sensuously lit up by a Taurus Sun passing through your House of Relationships. You know I’ve been teasing you recently about encountering a special someone with Neptune lingering in your House of Romance…..well……a word to the wise, just sayin’.

 

Sagittarius- Early in the week when Mercury in your House of Romance squares Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth, you may find yourself reflecting back on the one that got away, especially since at the same time Venus will enter Gemini and your House of Relationships. Take a moment to seriously ask yourself, if you could, would you really want to go back with this person? Mars and Pluto are also together in your House of Self Worth and together they are lined up with a behind the scenes Jupiter retrograde who is trying to explain that just because you remember something a certain way doesn’t mean that’s the way it really happened. You’re worried love has passed you by, but maybe that’s not the case at all. Perhaps you’ve just stopped feeling good about yourself and that’s the only thing that can keep pace with love, especially when there isn’t a lover present to remind you of your worthiness. The Scorpio Full Moon over the weekend could be a real downer if you choose to isolate yourself, so make sure you get out there and connect with people.

 

Capricorn- What do you think others expect of you? What do you expect of yourself? These are both necessary and important questions for you now, although don’t be overly concerned with what the answers should be, simply because any real answer would have to be predicated on knowing who you are to begin with and that, my “Capra” friend, is the million dollar question you need to figure out. Mercury rushing through Aries in your House of Foundations and squaring Saturn in your sign is the part of you that “has to know”, while Pluto and Mars (also in your sign) aligning with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Dreams is the effort you’re willing to make toward that end. It may just be the Sun transiting through Taurus and your House of Creativity that sets you free here, as it aligns with Saturn retrograde to help you realize that choosing to accept life is the only real answer to the question of self in a never ending Universe. Namaste (Yeah, you heard me right, I just said Namaste….hahaha).

 

Aquarius- You could be feeling torn this week as Mercury going through your House of Communications has you filled with all sorts of cool ideas and the need to share them, while at the same time Saturn behind the scenes aligning with the Sun in your House of Foundations is telling you to follow the head in front of you and stick to the rules. This could get dicey because Pluto and Mars are also behind the scenes like a pair of revolutionaries and as they align with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Public Image you might actually feel that by not pushing the envelope you might be selling out. Not to worry, rebellious Uranus should arrive to rescue you just in the nick of time as he and the Scorpio Full Moon inconjunct one another over the weekend. No doubt this quirky pair will help you to return to form and do something beautifully irrational as you “Go the distance…..” to the sound of a voice only you can hear.

 

Pisces- I hate to say this, but with Neptune in your sign for a long time to come it might be a good idea to get a very loud whistle and a very bright flashlight so people will be able to find you in the fog now engulfing you. Mercury in your House of Self Worth will have you grabbing when you should be patient and Saturn in your House of Dreams will have you waiting when you should be going after what you want. What to do? Because he is in a water sign, it would be wise for you to listen to the wise council of Jupiter retrograde as he passes along through your House of Philosophy. Perhaps his alignment with Pluto and Mars will help you to see that discretion can often be the better part of valor, meaning if you’re practical and patient you can live to fight another day when the circumstances might be more propitious (that is, when you know what you’re fighting for). Then again, the Scorpio Full Moon over the weekend could have you convinced that hula-hoops will be a thing again. Why don’t we do a test of that whistle and flashlight I suggested earlier?
