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

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

 

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

 

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

-Aleister Crowley

 

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

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

“If Love comes knocking

Let it in, you will always

Learn something useful”

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

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

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

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

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

“The seed of mystery

Lies in muddy water

 

How can we fathom the muddiness?

Water becomes clear through stillness

 

How can we become still?

By moving with the stream”

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Would you stand up and walk out on me?

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

And I’ll try not to sing out of key”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #17 Weekly Horoscopes for 1/1-1/7, 2017

 

Weekly Horoscopes for 1/1 – 1/7, 2018

 

 Hi Kids!!! Happy New Year!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. Before starting the Weekly Horoscopes for 2018, I would first like to take a moment to recount a little story that happened to me at the end of last year during the week between Christmas and New Years.

After putting away a couple of courses at an all-you-can-eat buffet that I was attending with my wife and her family, I eventually decided to get myself some dessert. When I went over to the ice cream station I encountered a Little Old Man in a hoody and a baseball hat standing there with an empty bowl in his hands and a very confused look on his face. I waited behind him for a moment but when I realized he wasn’t on line and was just standing there I said, “Excuse me” and went around him. “There’s no scoopers,” he said, and upon surveying the situation I could see the Old Guy was right. I looked around to see if there was an employee nearby who could help us, but the ice cream counter was situated in a far corner of the restaurant and there was no one around. It was then I suddenly remembered my unused spoon back at the table so I went to get it. The Little Old Man was still standing there with his bowl when I returned and once again he announced, “There’s no scoopers.” While I used the spoon I brought back from the table to serve myself some ice cream, I casually remarked to the Old Fellow, “Sometimes you just have to take matters into your own hands.” When I was finished serving myself I said, “goodbye” to him, but all he did was continue to stand there in silence with his bowl and stare at the ice cream.

When I returned to the table and repeated this incident to my wife she replied, “Wow, that’s a wonderful metaphor of life, you should include it in Mr. Saturn. Needless to say I followed her advice, which makes the moral of this New Year’s story for me, “Listen to your wife.”

 

Aries- As the year begins, ambition will be your middle name with The Sun, Venus, and Pluto all moving together through your House of Career to align with Jupiter and Mars holding hands in your House of Death and Transformation. You are resourceful and persistent at this time and with a Super Full Moon in Cancer in your House of Foundations you will also be feeling an almost biological imperative to establish something new for yourself that will stand the test of time. On the second of January, Uranus will go station/direct in your sign, which should help you turn some of last years frustration into originality and a new sense of panache for 2018. Mr. Saturn would say, “You’re trending!”

Taurus- The Lunar Arc this week through the lowest part of your chart will activate some deep seeded feelings of longing that should inspire you to re-visit some dreams you have been procrastinating about for far too long. This could involve either establishing a new home base or beginning a new career direction as The Sun, Venus, and Pluto are all activating the part of you that wants to make your mark in the world by establishing something both progressive meaningful. With Mercury moving direct toward Uranus and a Super Full Moon in your House of Thinking it is also important that you are willing to bend or even break some rules now to get yourself out of the logical and comfortable rut you’re luxuriating in. Mr. Saturn say’s, “it’s not about what you can get away with, it’s about what you need to get away from.”

Gemini- The Super Full Moon that starts this week will be in the sign of Cancer and your House of Self Worth. This could be either a recipe for insecurity or a rallying cry for success as this Super Moon opposes The Sun, Venus, and Pluto in your House of Transformation and trines a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in Scorpio. Sometimes fear motivates people to do remarkable things and at other times it freezes them in their tracks. Usually it all boils down to what you feel you have to lose; and we’re not talking about your material status, we’re talking about you’re spiritual and emotional net worth if you are letting yourself be defined by the approval of others. Also be careful mid-week that you don’t bite off your nose to spite your face as a Leo Moon aligns with a stationing Uranus in Aries, a fire combo that can be about irrationality as much as rebelliousness.

Cancer- With a stellium of Planets (specifically The Sun, Venus, and Pluto) in your House of Relationships opposing the Super Full Moon in your sign, this is a week that will reveal both how much others will need from you as well as how new situations will offer some unexpected solutions to some old problems. Mercury in your House of Daily Routines approaching a station/direct Uranus in your House of Public Image should certainly bring some surprises, not the least of which will be the swiftness with which circumstances can change. A Jupiter/Mars conjunction in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune should also bring some surprises, specifically how fast your intuition works as it deftly parry’s and returns one blow after another as fate prepares you for the destiny you’ve always dreamed of.

Leo- With the Super Full Moon lighting your inner recesses like a roman candle and a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in your House of Symbolic Foundations rumbling like an earthquake, who (or what) is to blame if your soul is feeling unsettled and your life seems on shaky ground? The logjam of Capricorn Planets in your House of Work and routines would suggest you’d like to blame it on your boss or anyone else who is expecting anything from you, while Mercury moving quickly toward Uranus would suggest it’s probably anyone who’d remind you that the only one responsible for what happens in your life and how you feel is you. Neptune in your House of Transformation would further indicate that whichever answer you choose you’ll still feel miserable, so Mr. Saturn would suggest blaming yourself because at least that way you’d be in charge and that’s where you Leo folks always want to be.

Virgo- This is a week for doing, not talking. A Jupiter/Mars conjunction in Scorpio and your House of Communication working with The Sun, Venus, and Pluto in Capricorn and your House of Creativity (as well as Neptune in your House of Relationships) should collectively motivate you to talk softly but carry a big stick. The Super Full Moon in Cancer will probably make you more tolerant (and patient) than usual and Mercury in Sagittarius approaching Uranus should make you as sharp as a razor in order to slice through whatever bullsh*t may come your way while leaving a minimum of blood on the floor. The Lunar Arc this week will also aid you in realizing that you’re probably more in control of your life than you’ve ever been before. All Mr. Saturn has to say at this point is, “High five!”

Libra- This week a Super Full Moon in Cancer will form a Grand Trine with both a Mars/Jupiter conjunction in your House of Self Worth and Neptune in your House of Work and Daily Routines, which means you are probably feeling inspired to move forward with either your career in general or a creative project you have high hopes for. However, as the song goes, “Turn, turn, turn, there is a time for every purpose under heaven…” meaning that The Sun, Venus, and Pluto marching now through Capricorn and your Home sector may be requiring you to focus your energies elsewhere for the time being. Saturn is also there in your House of Home and that should help you to realize beyond the shadow of a doubt that whatever seems to be holding back the Dream Express for you at this time is an absolutely necessary delay, in fact it is an evolutionary precursor for whatever it is you are hoping to be. So, have a glass of wine with Mr. Saturn and sing along, “Time, time, time, is on my side, yes it is….”

Scorpio- You have so many good ideas now it’s like a convention of fireflies in a shady grove on a hot summer night. Don’t let inspiration pass without action at this time and be a dreamer with a house full of travel brochures who has never went anywhere. A Jupiter /Mars conjunction will be exact in your sign this week, which in turn forms a powerful Grand Trine with the Super Moon in your House of Ideas and Neptune in your House of Creativity. Make the time to play, create, or even howl at the moon if you’d like because if you’re feeling it in your heart then it is necessary to share it with someone. A stellium of planets in practical Capricorn will help you think all this through and make it real, just make sure you’re following your bliss.

Sagittarius- The Super Moon in Cancer that starts the week is in your House of Legacies, meaning either your Mama is leaving you a lot of dough or you’ve been sacrificing a lot of yourself and hoping there’s an afterlife to make up for it. The Sun, Venus, Pluto, and Mr. Saturn all in Capricorn and your House of Self Worth are combining with Neptune in your House of Family to set the bar of responsibility quite high for you, making you feel as if you’re pole vaulter in the Olympics hoping for a medal. Mercury coming into alignment with a soon to be direct Uranus in your House of Creativity should serve as an inspiration for you to break out of this approval rut and leave someone else to clean up after the users (and abusers) in your life, although it could also mean that you’ll pride yourself inordinately at being able to bend over backwards like a circus contortionist to impress these ignoramuses. In addition, Jupiter and Mars in your House of Confinement are like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid trying to bust out of jail, although any decent historian (or even Mr. Saturn) will tell you, “they were never in jail together.” Think on that one for a while.

Capricorn- The Relationship Axis in your chart is overloaded with The Sun, Venus, Pluto, and Saturn all in your sign opposing the Cancer Super Full Moon in your House of Partnerships. Are you sweet on anybody now?, Is anyone sweet on you? Have you even noticed? Jupiter in your House of Friends aligning with Neptune in your House of Communication could mean someone you think of as just a friend may secretly like you a whole lot more. Or perhaps someone has been sending you some pretty clear signals and you’re just oblivious? As Mercury in your House of Confinement moves into an eventual alignment with Uranus, you could finally come to realize all the defense mechanisms and walls you’ve set up around yourself under the guise of being “too busy” and “having no time” are just excuses for being too chicken to open your heart. “Awww,” say’s Mr. Saturn, “why I bet plenty of people would like to get to know a sweetie pie like you.” Nuff said!

Aquarius- The Sun, Venus, Pluto, and Saturn operating now behind the scenes in your chart all represent the weight of responsibility hanging heavily on your shoulders. At the same time Mercury moving through your House of Groups toward Uranus in your House of Communication is all about exploring every possible angle to create solutions. The Super Full Moon in Cancer this week has you worrying whether or not you’re up to these current challenges, however, Neptune in your House of Earned Income could very well save the day by providing you with an unusual opportunity to acquire some much needed cash. Likewise, Jupiter and Mars conjunct in your House of Career should give you all the drive and courage you should need to see you through these difficult times. It might seem like you’re at the Alamo, but as the song goes, “We are the champions, my friend, and we’ll keep on fighting to the end!”

Pisces- As long as Neptune remains in your sign the challenge will be to stay grounded, not only in regards to your long term goals but in terms of your day to day existence as well. The Sun, Venus, Pluto and Saturn in your House of Dreams will help to keep your nose to the grindstone and make sure things stay organized, while a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in Scorpio will motivate you to remain focused. Mercury in your House of Career moving into an eventual alignment with Uranus in your House of Earned Income later in the week could bring some unexpected or unusual ways to make a little extra cash, although getting back to Neptune for a moment, make sure you are saving something for a rainy day from anything extra that comes in and not just spending it all. As Jimi Hendrix used to sing, “Castles made of sand fall into the sea, eventually…”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #16 Weekly Horoscopes for 12/25-12/31, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/25-12/31, 20017

 

Hi kids!!! This will be the last Mr. Saturn’s Stars for 2017, but don’t be sad. I wouldn’t be Mr. Saturn if I weren’t coming back to crack the whip on you through 2018 as well. So enjoy your holidays, reflect on where you’ve been and where you hope to go, and I’ll be here again soon enough to haunt you like death and taxes.

Aries- This has been a long and busy year for you, though strangely enough in this final week before the New Year you might find yourself surprisingly energized rather than exhausted. The Lunar Arc this week will begin in your sign and as it squares Venus conjunct Saturn on Christmas Day in your House of Career you will feel not only proud of what you’ve managed to accomplish in 2017, but more importantly you’ll be driven to move ahead with new plans for 2018 as soon as possible. With Jupiter and Mars coming into alignment with Pluto you might also start to notice more of a symbiosis with others than you have in the past. Neptune in your House of What is Hidden will lend a very Occult air to these new feelings of connection as you find yourself turning away from your usual misanthropic leanings and actually trusting others to do the right thing without an argument first! Mr. Saturn say’s, “Namaste!”

Taurus- A stellium of planets in your House of Long distance Travel combining with Neptune in your House of Friends and a Jupiter/Mars conjunction in your House of Relationships could see you either on the road for the Holidays to visit someone you’ve been missing, or else entertaining some local strays in your own cozy nest. A personal New Moon in the middle of the week should put you in a contemplative mood as you take stock of the changes you’ve made over the past year and what the future looks like from your new perspective. An unaspected Uranus in your House of Confinement still has you feeling an itch to do something different or be something more, although maybe that’s just about being okay with who you are at any given moment. As the late Dr. Timothy Leary once said, “You cannot use butterfly language to communicate with caterpillars.”

Gemini- A personal New Moon coinciding with the New Year will find you experiencing an epiphany of sorts as you realize even though there is no “I” in the word team, there is certainly a “Me” and that could be where your problems with relationships begin. The Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto currently in your House of Transformation and Shared Resources are all about making a serious long term commitment to a special someone. The alignment of these aforementioned planets with Jupiter, Mars, and Neptune would further indicate that any such commitment would have to begin by relinquishing some of your legendary control issues. It’s not enough to simply want to be different, the trick is to let your self be transformed by what challenges you and that must necessarily begin with trust. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

“When people say they

Want to change, it often means

They hope things will change”

Cancer- Right up until New Years Eve you’ll be burning the candle at both ends trying to keep up with a whirlwind of current challenges, as well as preparing for whatever may be looming on the horizon for 2018. After a relatively calm Christmas with Venus conjunct Saturn in your House of Partnerships, Uranus in your Public Sector and this week’s Lunar Arc should start things off with a bang. Not to fear though, with Jupiter and Mars conjunct in your House of Creativity working with The Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto in that same House of Partnerships that furnished you with a safe holiday, you and your significant other (as well as any other friends or family members who might get involved) should be more than a successful match for any emergencies that might come down the pike. Neptune in your House of Philosophy will also mean that your legendary intuition will be sharper than usual, so pay attention and have faith that you’ll know what to do as your comfort zone continues to morph into a new and more courageous version of you. Like the song goes, “You’ve got to pick up every stitch….”

Leo- You hate to say no to anyone, much less those you care about, but to keep your sanity this holiday week you’re going to have to disappoint someone; just make sure it’s not yourself. Mars and Jupiter in the sign of Scorpio and your House of Family could be about conflicts at home or with in-laws. The Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto in your House of Work will likely mean that somebody on the job is going to try to dump something on you that is not your responsibility. Whether it’s a family member or a co-worker, you’re going to have to stand up for yourself because no one else is really thinking about your needs. Like the Oracle told Neo in the Matrix, “On the one hand you’ll have Morpheus’s life and on the other hand you’ll have your own.” Mr. Saturn say’s, “You may not want to believe you’re the one until someone rudely tries to convince you they are.”

Virgo- Whenever you think about being responsible it’s usually in regard to someone else’s needs. In the past this way of thinking has often put you in a difficult position and you’ve sworn repeatedly to yourself to be tougher in the future so you won’t be taken advantage of. With 4 major planets now in the duty oriented sign of Capricorn (and ironically your House of Fun) the time has come for you to put your needs first and make sure you enjoy yourself. Noble Jupiter aligning with compassionate Neptune should help with this #mefirst movement you need to get going, while the Lunar Arc approaching Mercury should motivate you to oppose the expectations of a friend or partner who always assumes their way is automatically your way. Listen carefully to the words as Mr. Saturn sings one of his favorite Dylan songs, “Maggies Farm:”

“Well, I try my best

To be just like I am

But everybody wants you

To be just like them”

Libra- Yours is a sign of partnership and this week the themes of loyalty, cooperation, and, most importantly, love, will all be front and center. The Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto crowded into your House of Family and Foundations will bring you a quiet, yet inspirational Christmas at home, even if it’s just you and your partner. After that the Jupiter/Mars conjunction currently going on in your House of Self Worth will align with Neptune and inspire you to join hands and circle the wagons with your loved ones (even those you’re not especially thrilled with) to overcome any obstacle or challenge that may be looming on the horizon. As the 2017 calendar ends, a Mercury/Moon opposition could bring you the inspiration for a new direction in the coming year. Make sure you take notes and don’t let these thoughts pass. “This could be big,” say’s Mr. Saturn, as he pours you another glass of Pinot Noir waiting for the ball to drop……..

 Scorpio- As 2017 ends the only planet traveling above the horizon in your chart will be the Moon. All the other planets are passing beneath the horizon, which is traditionally thought to be symbolic of one’s private or inner self. Hence as the year concludes you should probably reflect on what 2017 has meant for you psychologically rather than what you have accomplished materially. In other words, no matter what you’ve managed to do or acquire, are you happy? Mars and Jupiter in your sign lining up with Neptune in your House of Fun would speak to inspiration, is that how you’re feeling? A stellium of planets in Capricorn would conversely speak to practicality and change, so what needs to be different for you to feel that inner fire? Resolve to trust yourself more in 2018 and then allow yourself to dream. Like the song say’s, “I tell you love, sister, it’s just a kiss away, it’s just a kiss away….”

Sagittarius- Mercury in your House of Communication is rapidly approaching an aspect to innovative Uranus in your House of Creativity that will be exact in the first week of 2018. Meanwhile, the Sun, Saturn, Venus, and Pluto are all currently in your House of Self Worth so that the immediate question becomes, what practical steps need to be taken RIGHT NOW to set up all that impending Mercury/Uranus energy? In other words, what will it take for you to focus on what’s important rather than on Jupiter and Mars in Scorpio gossiping behind the scenes? No doubt you’re focused on what they’re saying as they shoot the shit with illusionary Neptune, but what has believing that dirty little secret called “I’m not good enough” gotten you in the past? Just before New Year’s a Gemini Moon will first square Neptune and then sextile Uranus, so pay attention to what you believe about yourself and what options that leaves you. Can you hear Mr. Saturn singing? “Oh mother, tell your children, not to do what I have done…. To spend your life in sin and misery in the House of the Rising Sun….”

Capricorn- Logic will always teach us something, especially when the world doesn’t conform to our expectations. Conversely, intuition and emotion together will always lie, but separately, never. Sorry for waxing philosophical, but this week could either be a logjam or a dam opening for you depending on what you believe. Four major planets in your sign aligning with Jupiter and Mars represents pragmatism central, while on New year’s Eve both Mercury and a Gemini Moon squaring Neptune will be visions of sugar plums dancing in your head. Which is the truth? Uranus all by itself in your House of Foundations is proverbial chaos, meaning you really never know what’s going to happen until it does. Now if I told you that you’re a genius you’d probably not agree, however (and here’s the rub) if I said you weren’t good enough to succeed you might consider it. Decide which you believe and then see where it brings you. That is the only logic Mr. Saturn thinks you’ll need for 2018.

Aquarius- Your mind is as ubiquitous as the wind. Your creativity is like the will of a tiger as it mesmerizes its prey. Your spirit is a majestic mountain that seems to touch the heavens. You are feeling invincible, yet all things must eventually pass and when these miraculous events you are experiencing finally fade, then who will you be? Another insufficient breeze on a sweltering day in the city? Another old and tired tiger in a zoo? Or perhaps another mountain reduced to a hill after it is divided in half by a highway? With The Sun, Saturn, Venus, Pluto, and pretty soon Mercury all in Capricorn and your House of Confinement, the writing is on the wall for something that can’t last forever to eventually change. This is not a doomsday prophecy or simple hatin’, it is merely a warning not to take yourself too seriously. There is a famous story about the Taoist Sage Chuang Tzu who couldn’t decide if he was a butterfly or a man. “I wonder if he was an Aquarius too?” asks Mr. Saturn.

Pisces- Is Reality subjective or objective? If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to see it did the tree really fall? The 20th Century Mystic Teacher Gurdjieef once said, “Man’s greatest weakness is his suggestibility.” With Jupiter and Mars arm in arm in your House of Philosophy and aligning with Neptune in your sign, the propensity now is to believe whatever you want and not doubt your ego until you’re smacked down. A stellium of Capricorn planets in your House of Dreams would suggest you err on the side of caution if possible, and if not, then make it possible because you don’t want some damn hypothetical tree flattening you in a world where bones break and people fail because they believe all kinds of stupid things. As the New Year arrives and sociable Mercury transits your House of Public Image, don’t take those back at home for granted. After all, they are the only ones you can really depend on to yell “Timber!!!”

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

“Faith is a haunted

House where we all search in the

Dark with a candle”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #14 Weekly Horoscopes 12/11-12/17, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/11-12/17, 2017

 

Hi kids!!! Mr. Saturn here. Glad to have you back! Like many of you, for better or worse I will soon be heading home for the holidays, which for me is my native sign of Capricorn; A mountaintop, a bunch of freakish half-goat, half-fish relatives to deal with… All I can say about that is…Fa la la la la…..la..la ……la…….la………..ugh.

Aries- The week will begin in a vacuum with a Libra Moon un-aspected in your House of Relationships, meaning you’re either depressed that you don’t have a relationship or else you don’t know what to do about the one you’ve got. Either way a Scorpio Moon conjunct Mars mid-week in your House of Transformation will find you feeling alone and/or alienated enough to do something you’ might regret… but don’t!!! Mercury Retrograde meeting up with Venus in Sag could bring an old friend to the rescue. You’re feeling crazy so let off some steam with someone who knows how weird being you can get.Mr. Saturn would suggest perhaps some karaoke to welcome the New Moon? “Twenty, twenty, twenty-four hours ago…..I wanna be sedated…..nuthin to do nowhere to go-oh…..I wanna be sedated.”

Taurus- This week could be a real slow burn for you. A Libra Moon with nowhere to go except where everyone else seems to want it could see you compromising yourself into utter frustration either on the job or at home. By the time the Moon gets into Scorpio mid-week and gossips with both Mars and Jupiter, you’ll be roundly chastising yourself. “How could you let them do that to you?” you’ll say to yourself, or else to your poor pet that just wants to lie next to you in peace. Uranus in your House of Secrets will make you fantasize about all the murder and mayhem you could enact upon these people in vengeance, however, by the time Mercury Retrograde and Venus meet up in bubbly Sagittarius over the weekend you’ll be ready to forget all that and go back to saying, “Namaste” to everyone. Mr. Saturn already knows what he’ll get you for Christmas….a big bottle of booze.

Gemini- With the Moon starting the week in your House of Fun (and the sign of Libra) you’ll probably feel compelled to be a man or woman for all seasons for both family and friends, but is that what you really want to do? With 5 major planets in your House of Relationships (including Mercury Retrograde) and all of them in dippy Sagittarius to boot, be careful you don’t forget how certain individuals have already shown you they are not as nice as they pretend. When the Moon enters Scorpio in your House of Routines and joins with Mars and Jupiter to aspect Pluto in your House of Death and Transformation, seize your power with these users and wield it as decisively as if you were a self-absorbed two year old….”nonononono!!!!!!” “That’ll show ‘em,” say’s Mr. Saturn.

Cancer- Having a directionless Libra Moon in your House of Foundations to start the week is making you feel so conflicted between your desires and responsibilities that if you agreed to a session with a shrink you’d probably be diagnosed as a schizophrenic. There are 5 major planets transiting through your House of Work and with all of them watching a rebellious, iconoclastic Uranus in your House of Career acting like Bart Simpson and giving them all the finger, you keep asking yourself just how much more of this you can take? When the Moon enters your House of Children to join both Mars and Jupiter as they all trine Neptune in your House of Philosophy, you’ll eventually remember who you’ve been sacrificing for all this time. Make sure you also remember that nothing in life lasts forever. As he pours you a nice glass of wine, Mr. Saturn will add, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you’ll get what you need…..oh yeah..”

Leo- You will be torn this week between freedom and responsibility. With 5 planets transiting through Sagittarius and your House of Creativity and all of them lining up with innovative, individualistic Uranus in your House of Philosophy, you’ll be wanting to write your own ticket and make up your own rules. However, Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius may be singing behind the scenes to those other Sag Planets, “Turn, turn, turn, there is a time for every purpose under heaven.” The Moon, Mars, and Jupiter in Scorpio in your House of Home will likely agree, as they demand your attention instead be focused on an intervention for a lonely friend or family member who really just needs to know someone cares.

Virgo- Imagine two soldiers standing guard on the wall of a fort. One say’s, “It’s quiet,” and the other replies, “Yeah, too quiet.” Just then an Indian’s arrow hits one of them and the air is filled with screaming war cries. A series of petty emergencies may surprise you this week, but if you and your partner pull together and delegate things properly everything should work out. All of the focus for the rest of this year will probably be at home as you have 5 major planets (including Mercury Retrograde) transiting that area. They are all in aspect to Uranus in your House of Transformation, so if you can go with the flow you just might experience some pleasant surprises. If romance has been lacking as of late between you and yours, let Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio help you get the passion back. Mr. Saturn say’s, “Rrrrrrrrrrrr…….”

Libra- Having 5 major planets in your House of Communications (including Mercury Retrograde) would make this an excellent time for you to reach out, especially to a person or professional group you may have fallen out of touch with. Because Uranus is also involved, you could end up receiving an unexpected blast from the past from either an old flame or someone who has popped into your mind again recently. With Mercury and Uranus together, there’s never any telling where these surprises may lead! Mars, the Moon, and Jupiter in your House of Earnings in aspect to Neptune in your House of Work could bring an unexpected opportunity for either some quick dough or a position that could showcase a unique talent you have. Maybe Santa actually did get your letter this year?

Scorpio- With a stellium of planets in your House of Earnings and Uranus in your House of Work, the Holidays for you are going to be busy busy busy. You may end up being exhausted but you should manage to rake in enough dough to make it well worthwhile. It won’t be all work and no play though because you also have Mars, Jupiter, and the Moon in your sign this week and they are all aligning beneficially with Neptune in your House of Romance and Fun. Even if you’re feeling frazzled take the time to attend a party and hit the egg nog. You never know, that overgrown elf lurking under the mistletoe and throwing back the brewski’s may just turn out to be your very own special Secret Santa (or secret Saturn if you’ve been REALLY good this year…..just sayin’).

Sagittarius- Having the Sun, Mercury Retrograde, Venus, Saturn, and the New Moon all in your sign aligning with Uranus in your House of Fun would indicate that the party this week is in Sag!!! With the Moon in Libra to start the week you will probably be feeling magnanimous and accommodating, however, once the Moon shifts into Scorpio and meets with Jupiter and Mars behind the scenes you might want to rethink your nice guy approach in lieu of certain individuals (okay, let’s be specific, certain family members) who might take advantage of your good nature. The Lunar Arc will finish in your sign over the weekend with a New Moon conjunct Saturn and trine Uranus, meaning that instead of letting the same jerks who have ruined your holiday in the past do it again, this time take the high ground. Mr. Saturn would suggest, “Bless the beasts and the children.” In other words, be nice to kids and pets and then either ignore your stupid relatives or find a comfy, out of the way spot to drink by yourself.

Capricorn- You’re like a floating iceberg this week in that most of what you’re thinking and feeling is concealed below the surface. This is because a stellium of planets in Sagittarius (including Mercury Retrograde) are all hiding behind the scenes and aligning with Uranus at the bottom of your chart. A kind and compassionate Jupiter/Neptune configuration between your Houses of Friends and Communication could help you avoid depression if you’re willing to seek out a friend or family member with whom you can vent a little to relieve the pressure. After all, the holidays can be frustrating if you let yourself get cornered into believing that everybody except you is happy with all this phony commercialism and advertised joy. On a more upbeat note amidst all this Christmas nonsense, Mr. Saturn will be coming to visit your sign just before Christmas Eve! Yay humbug!!!

Aquarius- Right now there are 5 major planets in your House of Dreams and they are all aligning with Uranus in your House of Communication. As a result, the illusion of choice for you now is popularity. The Lunar Arc will travel this week from Libra through Scorpio to Sagittarius or from establishing relationships to manipulating these relationships for fame and gain. “That sounds great,” you say, which may actually be the problem. Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio transiting through your House of Career and Public Image would indicate that no matter how broad your smile and no matter what promises you are making to all the people you’re asking for help, the simple fact is this is all about you. Pluto camped out behind the scenes would indicate a need to transform the notions you have about love change from adoration to humility, but then again you’d have to be able to be by yourself to deal with that, which is the scariest place in the world for you right now. The New Moon in Sag shacking up with Mr. Saturn will likely arrange for you to have your illusions for a while longer, so enjoy it while you can. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is yours:

To think your ego

Is what will conquer this life

Defines Black Magick

Pisces- A traffic jam of planets in your House of Career (including a very dissident Mercury Retrograde) are all causing you to have illusions of practicality about your former ambitious illusions. Now what could that possibly mean? Well, maybe the river you initially chose to cross wasn’t really the right one for you (which of course you wouldn’t hear at the time)? Nevertheless, changing horses now when you’re 3/4 of the way across is ridiculous, especially since you’re so close to finishing and learning whatever it is you’re supposed to. Now do you understand? Probably not, mostly due to the fact that transiting Mars in Scorpio aligning with Neptune in your sign at this time is giving you a real passion for not having a clue and being defensive about it. You think choice and responsibility are mutually exclusive just because they’re two different words, well, not to whoever is sponsoring this adventure you’ve been having….have you thought of that? When the New Moon tattles to Mr. Saturn on Sunday he may just make you aware of it.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #13 Weekly Horoscopes 12/4-12/10, 2017

Weekly Horoscopes for 12/4-12/10, 2017

 

 Hi kids!!! Here we are again for another round of Mr. Saturn’s Stars. I know it’s been tough lately but take heart, there are only 22 more days of Christmas music remaining and then we’re on to happier times! Hey! Perhaps there’ll be an Impeachment Celebration in the Spring if the groundhog sees his shadow? “Here Comes the Sun…and I say…. it’s all right…”

 

Aries- With the Sun, Venus, Saturn, and Mercury Retrograde all in your House of Travel it’s no wonder you’re feeling the itch to get away; but from what…Christmas Music? Boredom? Your self? Mars in your House of Relationships is ready, willing, and able to lead you to distraction, but is that other person you’re considering available? Are you available? Be careful. Jupiter in your House of Sex and Neptune behind the scenes could seduce you into leaving the back door open, but let the Lunar Arc show you the writing on the wall as it passes from Cancer to Leo to Virgo or longing to indulgence to regret…just sayin’. Of course with Venus pulling into a square with Neptune over the weekend you’re going to do the worst thing possible so make sure you have enough sick days saved at work….”Love, it’s a Bitch….all right….” sings Mr. Saturn along with Mr. Jagger.

Taurus- A bull can stand around for a long time doing nothing but then suddenly something sets it off and then you have a whirlwind of horns and fury. With the loose cannon twins Uranus and Mercury Retrograde currently doing their mischief in your deepest and darkest places be careful that you don’t take something the wrong way from someone who certainly isn’t innocent, but isn’t evil either. A little compassion and a little less judgment (mostly toward yourself) could go a long way here, after all, if Timothy Leary was right and the mind is God then what we blame the world for could very well just be our own projections and nothing more. Later in the week as Neptune is simultaneously squared by Venus and trine to Jupiter you’ll likely recognize the error of your ways and be ready to take a deep breath (along with a good stiff drink) and let Mr. Saturn queue up his playlist…beginning with ”Getting better all the time, better….better….bet-ter…”

Gemini- A stellium of planets in your House of Relationships has you hell bent on taking the high road with someone who has disappointed you; just make sure your feelings don’t get short changed in the process. Your idealism isn’t immature nor is it weakness or naivety, it is your essential character and sooner or later it will create for you the emotional satisfaction you deserve. Meanwhile on the job front you’re going to need to get tougher as well. The Lunar Arc for the week will have you trying to understand and be compassionate with a problem employee, but by the weekend you will finally realize that you’re doing this individual a disservice by not cracking the whip on their lazy ass. When Venus squares Neptune over the weekend be careful not to take too much of a swan dive into that wine glass. Mr. Saturn’s haiku this week is for you;

“Sometimes logic needs

A glass of wine to know how

Reality feels”

Cancer- Your sign is ruled by the Moon and the Lunar Arc for this week contains great wisdom if you can open your heart to the music of the spheres. Beginning with a personal New Moon in your sign and then progressing through Leo into Virgo, the Lunar theme for the next seven days is about nurturing, courage, and maintenance. The Universe is willing to help you if you believe you are deserving of it. A Jupiter/Neptune aspect will be about mystical insight and creative thinking, that is, if you can begin to understand how much you’ve actually changed as a result of some recent hardships and what new insights (and powers) you’ve gained. As Mercury Retrograde aspects both impatient Mars and volatile Uranus it will be the perfect time to re-examine your whole emotional process and consider how much more effective you’d be if you took the time to breathe before reacting. Repeat after Mr. Saturn, “Aum….. Aummm…”

Leo- The Moon symbolizes emotions and the Lunar Arc this week for the Sign of the Lion will be all about your vulnerability, strength, and healing. Early in the week the Moon in your House of Hidden Things will align with both Jupiter and Neptune to form a Grand Trine. This could turn out to be quite enlightening once you begin to realize how your sense of compassion for others is really your own need to be forgiven; but for what (and by whom)? Now that Mercury is Retrograde and connected with Saturn in your House of Creativity, you should have the necessary perspective to finally embrace that inner child you’ve been projecting onto others in order to try to heal yourself by proxy. Freudian fondue for sure, but hey, Mr. Saturn is offering you a nice baguette to dunk and a glass of Pinot Noir to go with it, so try and get through this the best you can.

Virgo- With 4 major planets in the sign of Sagittarius and your House of Home you will be looking to transform your residence into something you can share with others and even perhaps profit from. A Mars/Uranus opposition could bring on some unexpected surprises regarding investments and earnings, though this should be temporary and when Mr. Saturn arrives home in Capricorn near the end of the month he’ll likely co-sign the go ahead to keep everything steadily moving forward. The key now is to remain calm but determined in your communications with a partner, which you should be able to pull off as Jupiter moves into a magnanimous trine with Neptune. The Lunar Arc for you this week will see you as the caretaker, defender, and problem solver for a current dream that has become about more than just accomplishing something; it’s now about you being the type of dynamic and creative person you wouldn’t permit yourself to be back in the day.

Libra- Saturn and Pluto are both at the bottom of your chart right now so don’t think you’re going crazy if it seems like the ground is shaking underneath your feet. Mercury Retrograde, Mr. Saturn, and Uranus, should all act like first responders bringing some unexpected luck out of the past just in the nick of time. Let them get you under a solid doorpost where you’ll be safe. Furthermore, Jupiter in your House of Income is a protective influence, especially with Mars about to visit for a seven-week sleepover. Those two together are like Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid so before too long your saddlebags should be filled with loot. The Lunar Arc this week will bring you back into the public eye where your reputation is still sound and you have not been forgotten. As the Moon finishes the week in Virgo make sure you take some time to rest (and raise a glass with Mr. Saturn) after the rollercoaster ride of this last month.

Scorpio- For approximately the last seven weeks Mars has been hidden in your closet and bouncing off the walls to get out. Anyone that was messing with you during that time is likely to get a rude awakening when the Planet of War puts on his gear in your sign and joins Jupiter for some dojo sparring. Neptune in your House of Play will make sure no one gets hurt, so don’t worry, you’re still a nice person (if you care…lol!!!). Mercury Retrograde and Mr. Saturn in your House of Earnings will both call on Uranus to come out and play, which could result in you getting a retroactive reward as a result of some fine work (or a good deed) done in the past. Be prepared to be the center of attention in mid-week when a Leo Moon transits your House of Career and Public Image. Look, Mr. Saturn is standing with the rest of the crowd and chanting….”Maximus, Maximus, Maximus!!!”

Sagittarius- With Mercury Retrograde in your sign things should be quite kooky until just about Christmas Day. Mr. Saturn would advise you to be careful at the office parties and keep your hands to yourself, especially with Jupiter in your House of Secrets and Mars arriving there by the weekend…just sayin’. Venus will also be moving into square with Neptune this week so even if you manage to avoid getting involved with a #metoo incident during a drunken party, you’ll still be on your family’s radar and if there is a user among them, watch out; again, just sayin’. The Lunar Arc this week could be a drag for you based on what’s been said so far about family, simply because it will traverse Cancer, Leo, and Virgo and cover your Houses of Shared Resources, Philosophy, and Public Image. In other words you’ll be expected to take care of people, you’ll feel guilty if you don’t, and then you’ll criticize yourself if anything goes wrong. I think you should ask Santa for something extravagant; what have you got to lose?

Capricorn- Mercury Retrograde in your House of Secrets will be about the things you won’t admit to yourself and how this stuff has managed to follow you over the years like a jury duty notice. The healthiest thing to do at this time would be to confront your insecurities, especially with Jupiter (and soon Mars) in your House of Hopes and Dreams aligning with compassionate Neptune. It’s time to forgive your inner child because now you’re a strong, self-actualized adult, right? With Saturn returning to your sign before Christmas and Pluto already there you can’t avoid interior renovations any longer if you have hopes of selling your symbolic house of self next year. The Lunar Arc would suggest that all the help you’ll need is there for you if you can stop trying to be objective about yourself and just be yourself. Mr. Saturn would simply say, “relax and let me fortify that eggnog, you’ll be fine.”

Aquarius- Mr. Saturn say’s, “Trying to tell a person something they’re not ready to accept is merely inviting a disagreement that can’t be settled.” With Jupiter in your House of Career (and Mars arriving there soon) plus Neptune in your House of Self Worth, no one is going to be able to tell you anything that will slow your roll. In addition, a stellium of planets in megalomaniacal Sagittarius (including Mercury Retrograde) combined with rebellious Uranus has you convinced you know everything and the rest of us just need to shut up and appreciate that. Okay. The Lunar Arc will initially make it seem as though everyone is agreeing with you, but when the Moon finishes the week in Virgo opposing Neptune and then squaring both Mercury Retrograde and Saturn you will no doubt be bewildered and wondering out loud, “Why didn’t anyone try to tell me I was on the wrong track?” Hmmmm…..

Pisces- Ruled by Neptune you could be both a brilliant and flakey sign at the same time as you alternately charm and exasperate those who are forced to deal with you. This week will see you true to form (or formlessness as the case may be) as Mercury Retrograde joins with Saturn in your House of Career and aligns with erratic Uranus in your House of Self Worth. The shortcuts you were convinced of last week will turn into the overtime you (or someone else) will spend this week fixing things up. Mars opposing Uranus at the beginning of the week and then joining Jupiter in Scorpio over the weekend will initially find you indignant at having to be responsible for anything you don’t think is important, followed by a total conviction that someone else should help you make sure everything is taken care of. See what I mean? Mr. Saturn say’s you make him think of the old Jimi Hendrix song, “Well now if 6 turned out to be 9, I don’t mind, I don’t mind…”

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Good or Evil? The

Speed of Darkness is equal

To the Speed of Light”

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

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

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

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