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

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

 

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

 

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

-Aleister Crowley

 

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

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

“If Love comes knocking

Let it in, you will always

Learn something useful”

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

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

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

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

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

“The seed of mystery

Lies in muddy water

 

How can we fathom the muddiness?

Water becomes clear through stillness

 

How can we become still?

By moving with the stream”

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

Would you stand up and walk out on me?

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

And I’ll try not to sing out of key”

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

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

 

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

 

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

– John C. Lilly M.D.

 

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

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

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

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

“Destiny is the

Inheritance we get from

Fate after a choice”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

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

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

“No one has broken

My heart, but I’ve certainly

Dropped it a few times”

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

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

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

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

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

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

“We feel entitled

To each moment but then let

Them collect like dust.”

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

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

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