Mr. Saturn’s Stars #104, Special Bernie Sanders “Get Well” Edition

Special Bernie Sanders “Get Well” Edition

 

On Tuesday October 1stpresidential hopeful Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont experienced chest pains during a campaign event and was subsequently rushed to the hospital where it was determined he had a blockage in one of his arteries. Doctors inserted two stents into the artery in question and on Wednesday October 2ndit was reported that the Senator was in good spirits and resting peacefully.

 

While the preceding paragraph outlines the basic facts of what happened to the 78 year old Politician, it gives no indication whatsoever of the emotions that swirled around the country when literally millions of working class people of all races, nationalities, and sexual persuasions started hearing news reports that their champion had possibly fallen. Yet in true Bernie fashion, by late Wednesday (the day after his incident) the Senator was both tweeting and posting on instagram in his inimitable style proclaiming how lucky he was to have good healthcare, adding that it also made him think of how scary it would be for someone who didn’t have insurance. He went on to say how many Americans are uninsured or underinsured and would be facing financial ruin if they were to have to pay out of pocket for a procedure like he had received. Even as he lay recuperating in the hospital this lion of a man was still thinking about and fighting for those less fortunate.

 

Now of course the mainstream corporate media will try to write Bernie off because of this recent health episode, engaging in subtle (and not so subtle) criticisms that he is too old. And of course no such criticisms will be made against his competitors Joe Biden or Elizabeth Warren, despite the fact that Biden is only a year younger than Bernie and Warren at 70 is pretty close to the life expectancy for an adult woman in the U.S. While this sort of double standard seems unfair, it is something that Bernie Sanders has become used to in his long and storied career. Since being elected the Mayor of Burlington Vermont in 1981, he has continuously rubbed the establishment the wrong way and irked those in power with his relentless demands for a more equitable society. From marching with Gay Activists as Burlington’s Mayor in the 1980’s, to Feminist Gloria Steinem announcing her support for his 1996 House Campaign by declaring him an “Honorable Woman”, to his recent marches with Amazon and Walmart workers for a $15 minimum wage, Senator Bernie Sanders has been a warrior for social and economic justice his entire career. As his campaign chair former Ohio State Senator Nina Turner would put it, “Bernie has the receipts”, meaning simply that his record speaks for itself.

 

Bernie Sanders has done the right thing and been on the right side of the issues consistently throughout his career, even when it was unpopular and at times dangerous to do so. As a young man he marched for Civil Rights with Doctor Martin Luther King and later got his ass beat by Chicago police demonstrating for affordable housing for minorities. As a young Congressman he stood up in the House of Representatives and strenuously took exception when someone testifying in the chamber referred to “Homos in the Military.” During that incident Bernie would not yield to the Speakers gavel until the bigot had been put in his place. He was also one of the few serving in the Congress at the time that risked being labeled unpatriotic when he voted against the Iraq War and the lies of the Bush Administration.

 

At this point in his career it could be said that Senator Bernie Sanders is arguably the most influential Legislator of his generation. During his first Presidential run in 2016 his platform included programs such as Medicare for All, Free tuition at State Colleges, a $15 Minimum Wage, Corporate Tax Reform, and Bold Climate Change Legislation, all of which his Democratic colleagues and the mainstream corporate media criticized him for, claiming it was unrealistic and “pie in the sky,” adding “how are you gonna pay for all this?” When Bernie pointed out to his opponents that they didn’t worry about where the money would come from for the country’s $700 Billion Defense budget or that highly profitable corporations like Amazon and Walmart payed $0 in Federal Taxes, suggesting perhaps that’s where the money could be found to fund his social programs, no one paid attention. When he also announced he would not take money from big donors to pay for his campaign expenses the pundits said he didn’t stand a chance. Fast-forward now to the current Democratic Presidential Primaries of 2019 and everyone in the field is repeating one or more of Bernie’s ideas and spinning them as their own, while at the same time his campaign has raised the most money of any candidate so far; 61.5 million dollars from over 3.4 million donations with the average contribution being $18.

 

It is Mr. Saturn’s opinion that Bernie Sanders is the only honest politician out there. Certainly he’s the only one with a consistent track record of actually doing what he say’s he’s going to do and fighting the good fight for working people no matter what he’s up against. An example of this occurred during the second democratic presidential debate when he called out CNN’s Jake Tapper for using Republican talking points to criticize the idea of a single payer health insurance program adding, “During the commercial breaks tonight CNN will be airing pharmaceutical ads” (which in fact happened). Now for those who may not be paying attention, if CNN is taking ad money from Big Pharma it would then seem likely that they would also want to discourage presenting a national health plan in a favorable light, especially since Bernie’s Medicare for All would eliminate private insurance and put price limits on prescription drugs. It’s not often here in the U.S. that we see a politician speak truth to Corporate Power, most of them simply take the big donor money and then vote according to their contributors interests, ignoring what the constituents who elected them might actually need.

 

When I initially heard of Bernie’s health episode the first thing I thought of was that America would once again lose a great leader when the country needed him most.  Since the hope of the 1960’s we have watched the nation slowly succumb to corporate control as our visionaries get assassinated, the rich get richer, the rest of us get poorer, and the society at large passively accepts a high-tech, sound bite, celebrity driven, virtual substitute for what was once a real world with real people and real responsibilities. We are undeniably at a critical crossroads in our nation’s history and it can’t be ignored. At a time when Corporate monopolies and their cancer-like need for profits are destroying our environment and ignoring the plight of the average person, when the vast majority of wealth in our society is ascending like a helicopter to the top 1%, and 90% of the country is being left to drown in a combined undertow of stagnated wages and rising inflation, we desperately need someone who will tell the truth and fight with us to get out of this maze where all that’s waiting for our children when they grow up is a Minotaur of financial, spiritual, and global ruin.

 

Bernie Sanders is a fighter. He’s had a health episode. He’s also received the standard treatment for it that should leave him in better shape in the long run. Of course his adversaries will begin their death knell that he’s done, but as long as he can walk, Bernie will get out there and fight for us. He’s proven that over the last 40 years of his career. While he’s healing let’s send him our prayers. It’s Our Revolution, but we still need him out there in front of us for a while.

 

“Wherever there’s a fight so hungry people can eat, I’ll be there. Wherever there’s a cop beatin’ up a guy, I’ll be there……..I’ll be in the way guys yell when they’re mad-I’ll be in the way kids laugh when they’re hungry and they know suppers ready. And when folks eat the stuff they raise and live in the houses they build- why, I’ll be there. See? God, I’m talkin’ like Casy. Comes of thinkin’ about him so much. Seems like I can see him sometimes.”

-John Steinbeck “The Grapes of Wrath”

 

 

 

The Astrology of Bernie’s Health Episode

 

Even though Bernie’s episode occurred on October 1st , it is necessary to look back a couple of weeks to around September 15thwhen the Vermont Senator had his Mercury return in order to gain some valuable insight into what happened. While a Mercury return is a brief transit, it can often indicate a dramatic increase in activity and stress as the Messenger Planet brings with it the potential for an avalanche of communications and social interactions. For those who might not be aware, Senator Sanders was averaging 5 to 10 events a week all around the country prior to the time of his feeling chest pains.

 

On the day of his episode Saturn, the planet of structure and the natural order, was in alignment with Bernie’s natal Sun in Virgo, the sign of health. At the same time, transiting Neptune was in opposition to his Sun, meaning that because Bernie is a tough S.O.B he was probably ignoring the signs that he needed a rest, however, when Saturn comes calling if you won’t do the right thing voluntarily, then you may just find that circumstances will force you to do what is necessary. In addition, Saturn was also squaring Bernie’s natal Moon in Aries, a placement that no doubt gives him his prodigious drive and energy but also at that time might have been running amok and making him try to do way too much. In short, Saturn the Teacher pulled Bernie out of the mix in order that he partake in some necessary rest in order to pace his 78 year old body for the long campaign ahead. Because Saturn is also about discipline and routines, it would probably be a good idea as well if Bernie (and his staff) began watching his diet a little more carefully while he’s traveling, particularly when it comes to the many heart un-healthy foods one is forced to eat when jetting all around the country.

 

A saving grace at this time was that the episode happened during Bernie’s Venus return, which occurred in the balanced sign of Libra where his natal Venus was in harmonious aspect with both his natal and transiting Jupiter. Whenever Jupiter is involved there is always the possibility of excess, yet when it combined with Venus at the time of that planet’s return in the Senator’s chart, it also made me think that an important realization would be made on the part of Bernie (and his staff) that he’s not a young man anymore and it would be wise to pacethe campaign a little more evenly.

 

In short, it seems that both Saturn and Jupiter, with a little help from Venus (All you Need is Love) have conspired together to slow down our possible future POTUS just enough so he can rejuvenate himself. He still has a long journey to the White House and after he gets there he’s still going to need a lot of energy in reserve to be able to govern and change this country the way it needs to be changed.

 

Like a fine wine, I think we will see a vintage Bernie Sanders in 2020.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #102 Weekly Horoscopes for

Weekly Horoscopes for 9/23-9/29, 2019

 

Aries- With the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and a New Moon all in your House of Partnerships and the relationship oriented sign of Libra, this would definitely be a week for you to get out there and network. Who knows, maybe you’ll find that new special someone you’re secretly longing for? Of course Saturn in your House of Public Image will be squaring some of these Libra planets so try to limit your potential associates (at least in a romantic sense) to individuals who are capable of a mature relationship. Hit and runs may be fun, but when you find out that the other party has no insurance things can turn south pretty quickly. Jupiter in your House of Long Distance Affairs will also be aligning nicely with all those planets in Libra, meaning that travel could figure prominently at this time, either through expanding a business or personal project internationally or else having someone from an exotic locale catch your eye. No matter which it is, try to keep your viewpoint as broad as possible and you could end up with a nice surprise.

 

Taurus- If you haven’t been satisfied with either your appearance or the way you feel then this could be the week to engage in some serious self-improvement. The Sun, Mercury, Venus, and a New Moon will all be transiting through your House of Health where they will each align nicely with expansive Jupiter in your House of Transformation, meaning that if you can manage to fundamentally change your habits then you can significantly change your life. Saturn in your House of Philosophy should also be able to help with this by not only giving you the determination to embrace a newer, more practical approach to how you live, but also by aiding with the discipline necessary to stick to a new program and see it through. Of course an unaspected Uranus in your sign will try to distract you with its eccentricities, but don’t listen. Instead, use the energy of Mars in your House of Creativity to push the boundaries of your comfort zone into uncharted territories, like for instance trying something different and not worrying about breaking the rules. Don’t panic, you can do it!

 

Gemini- With the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and a New Moon all in your House of Fun this week you will be itching to get out there and play! In addition, Jupiter in your House of Relationships aspecting all of those playful planets should further set the scene for you to want to sow some wild oats. Keep in mind though, Uranus all by himself behind the scenes might create some serious distractions to following through on any grand ideas you might have at this time, while conversely discipline oriented Saturn in your House of Transformation and impulsive Mars in Virgo at your Foundation could be responsible for making you feel guilty about playing at all. As a result, this could be a very bi-polar week for you that oscillates back and forth between “Why not?” and “I have to”, although that’s nothing new for all you twins out there.

 

Cancer- Four Libra Planets are moving now through your House of Home and aspecting Jupiter in your House of Health, meaning that if you have been feeling under the weather as of late the most balanced (and healthy) thing you could do at this time is rest. At the same time, Saturn in your House of Realtionships and Mars in your House of Communication will also have you feeling your usual over the top sense of responsibility to those you care about and/or work with. This will no doubt provide a conundrum for a nurturing sign like yourself, but the question is, should one pay the pound of flesh to make someone else happy or should you take care of yourself? Only you can answer that question, although everyone who likes you taking care of their shit will try to convince you otherwise. Uranus all by himself in your House of Dreams may be the wisest one of this week’s planetary bunch as he sets an example for you by doing whatever he damn well feels like. Maybe you should listen?

 

Leo- Uranus all alone in your Public Image area will likely bring some crazy shit into your life now, which you will need to choose how to deal with. On the one hand Jupiter in your House of Creativity squaring Neptune in your House of Transformation could make you want to tell a difficult individual to stick it where the sun don’t shine, but on the other hand 4 nice, diplomatic Libra Planets in your House of Communication aspecting Jupiter will be telling you to be a peacemaker, stay calm, and turn lemons into lemonade. Jupiter is the common denominator here and you’ll have to consider whether you want his largeness to be either angry or philosophical. Saturn in your House of Work could end up having the final say though, particularly if the person giving you a hard time is the boss or owner of where you are employed. It won’t be an easy week, but then again, “The harder they come, the harder they fall”…….right? If there’s something at stake for you now professionally, keep calm.

 

Virgo- Mars in your sign is providing all the strength you will need right now, although as the warrior planet opposes Neptune in your House of Relationships and squares Jupiter at the bottom of your chart you should also make sure that this newfound energy you’re feeling is being used to hold things together rather than to bust them apart. Saturn in your house of Creativity should act as a guiding voice for Mars at this time as he directs the warrior planet to remember that “discretion can be the better part of valor, especially if you stand to lose something you’ve been working on for a while for the sake of a “gotcha” moment with a critic who is really nothing more than a miserable, unhappy person. A whole bunch of nice Libra planets in your House of Self Worth should make it easier to turn the other cheek now, particularly if in true Libra fashion their current counsel turns out to be several steps ahead of whoever would hope to give you shit. Take the time to think things through and you’ll see that nice will make right at this particular time.

 

Libra- With the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and a New Moon in your sign now, this is your season and noble, philosophic Jupiter agrees, so expect him to call opportunity to you from far and wide as the King of the Planets transits through your House of Communication extolling the virtues of both your sign and the spiritual, communicative, and beautiful planets in it.If this kind of optimism seems a little unlikely in your current world, it’s probably because Saturn and Pluto have been demolishing (and restructuring) your circumstances for a while now from the bottom of your chart. But that’s not to say surprises can’t happen, after all, Mars is galloping through your House of Secrets and everyone knows the God of War leaves nothing untouched, especially as he drags mystical Neptune along through your House of Routines, meaning that “There are more things in heaven and earth, Libra, than are dreamt of in your philosophy. Believe that and Magick may just happen.

 

Scorpio- Jupiter in your House of Self Worth is currently helping you to re-evaluate your place in this world, while at the same time the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and a New Moon in Libra are all conspiring behind the scenes to help you understand what balance truly is, meaning the time may finally be here for the Sage within you to shine through with the sort of beauty and insight that only a truly spiritual person can offer. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Communication aligning with Mars in your House of Groups could see you being a spokesperson for a particular point of view now, as your ability to express complex ideas in plain, concise language will prove to be invaluable in helping others to understand something that has, up until now remained concealed. A lone Uranus in your House of Partnerships could see you attracting some “unique” followers as a result of this new role, however, if you continue to keep it real (as you always do) then the big beneficiaries here will not only be those in the world who need to know, but you as well…Imagine that!

 

Sagittarius- Jupiter in your sign will soon be aligning with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and a New Moon in Libra, meaning that you should have quite the glow about you now as spirit, eloquence, beauty, and feeling will all be coursing through you as if a magickal elixir was flowing through your veins. With that in mind, what do you want? Ask and ye shall receive say’s mighty Jupiter, because, after all, don’t you deserve it? Mars in your House of Career would say that you do, especially if you’re willing to grab for it as Saturn supports the planet of War from your House of Self Worth while in turn propping up miraculous Neptune at the bottom of your chart. As the Doors once sang, “Strange Days are on us,” so run with that my centaur friend and use those freaky hooves of yours to get as far ahead of all the squares as you possibly can.

 

Capricorn- For all the months that Saturn and Pluto have been putting you through the paces of what it means to do things right, the time may finally be here for you to benefit from all of those hard lessons. The Sun, Mercury, Venus, and a New Moon will all be transiting through your House of Career and the balanced, just, and liberal sign of Libra, meaning that what goes around, comes around. You’ve put in the work my friend, so expect to reap some of the rewards, particularly with Jupiter supporting all of those Libra planets from behind the scenes. You might also be shocked to discover that you have a Godfather, especially since all this time you’ve been thinking no one was noticing. Let this individual take you to greener pastures where there could possibly be a few unexpected surprises, as a rogue Uranus in your House of Creativity and Fun may just be waiting with either a sudden windfall or a Super Freak who likes your style.

 

Aquarius- The New Moon this week will be in your House of Philosophy along with the Sun, Mercury, and Venus. Add to that Jupiter in his native sign of Sagittarius and your House of Dreams and it may just be time for you to turn over a new leaf my Aquarian friend, or even leave the leaf business entirely in favor of a more intergalactic outlook.  Of course the obstacle to this may be Saturn behind the scenes, but even he may have become a little more new age than one might expect, particularly with Mars in your House of Transformation and Neptune in your House of Self Worth nudging him away from the practical and toward the mystical. Combine all this with unpredictable Uranus down at the bottom of your chart and I think it’s time my water bearing friend to get ready for a rollercoaster ride to the merry old land of Oz.

 

Pisces- What goes around, comes around, especially as the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and a New Moon all happen this week in your House of Transformation and the balanced sign of Libra. This is a time to expect quid pro quo for what you’ve done and bumpkus for what you haven’t. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Dreams would concur, particularly with Mars in your House of Relationships to police the situation and clearly identify those who have merely talked the talk as opposed to those who have walked the walk. Another way to look at this situation would be to realize that if you want more you have to be willing to do more. In other words, whatever recalcitrant, rebellious, self-centered Uranus in your House of Thinking tells you to do, do the opposite…….You’ll be glad you did.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #97 Weekly Horoscopes for 8/19-8/25, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 8/19-8/25, 2019

 

 Aries- As the Sun, Venus, and Mars exit your House of Fun and Creativity to enter your House of Routines and the detail oriented sign of Virgo, expect the high energy and fun of last week to quickly become a series of challenges and obstacles that will require some novel solutions. Considering that these Virgo planets will be in alignment with Uranus in your House of Self Worth, there is no doubt that you will rise to whatever conundrums are at hand as you find motivation where others may only see misfortune. Jupiter in your House of Philosophy aligning with Mercury in your House of Creativity would further accentuate this theme of ingenious solutions, so keep your nose to the grindstone and don’t stop until the foreman yells, “Miller time!!!!!”

 

Taurus- Having crazy, erratic, undisciplined Uranus in your sign is undoubtedly quite a shock to your stable, status quo sensibility, although later in the week there will be a trio of repair workers moving into the neighborhood to help you out as the Sun, Venus, and Mars enter the disciplined and detail oriented sign of Virgo and your House of Creativity. What at first had seemed like a barrage of challenges around a new creative project should now instead turn into some unexpected benefits as these upbeat and practical energies come into play in the sign that fixes things. Add to this Jupiter in your House of Transformation working nicely with Mercury in the proud sign of Leo and your previous “Oh no, what’s next” attitude should segue nicely into a very productive “can do” outlook…… So get out there and get shit done!

 

Gemini- Last week’s top heavy Leo energy probably had you thinking that you’d be able to bullshit your way out of just about anything, although with the Sun, Venus, and Mars now leaving pompous Leo to enter persnickety Virgo, get ready for the fact checkers to start snooping in places you’d rather they didn’t. Saturn retrograde in your House of Joint Resources will also be doing his little investigations, so if you’re hoping to do some damage control before you get caught with your hand in the cookie jar make sure to follow the lead of Jupiter in your House of Partnerships and Mercury in your House of Communications and call in any favors you possibly can. You’re not above the Law, but if you’re lucky you might be able to get far enough out ahead of it to give you time to formulate another strategy. It ain’t much, but it’s what you got!

 

Cancer- You are a sign that likes to operate on your intuition and connecting to other’s feelings, although as the Sun, Venus, and Mars enter the practical sign of Virgo and your House of Communication, make sure to get any sensitive correspondences about work or finances in writing, particularly as Uranus in your House of Groups will be aligning with these new Virgo planets, thereby increasing the possibilities of misunderstandings and outright lies. Mercury in your House of Self Worth and Jupiter in your House of Routines will have you trusting that everyone you’re familiar with is on the honor system and can be depended upon, however, hot flash from the news room, they can’t, so make sure to cover your ass and keep records.

 

Leo- All those positive vibes you were feeling last week when there was a stellium of planets in your sign are going to change now as the Sun, Venus, and Mars all move into your House of Self Worth and the critical sign of Virgo. You’re usually convinced of your opinions and with Jupiter in buoyant Sagittarius aligning with Mercury (who’s still in your sign) that will probably remain the same, although with those three Virgo planets aligning with Uranus in your House of Public Image make sure you double check the facts before you commit to saying or doing anything, even if you think you know what the facts are; your reputation may be at stake……Just sayin’.

 

Virgo- As the Sun, Venus, and Mars enter your sign this week your trouble-shooting mentality and natural attention to details could make you a very necessary individual in whatever situation you may find yourself in. The fact that these three planets will also be aligning with Uranus in your House of Philosophy could actually provide you with a few inspirations of actual genius, so don’t hesitate to express an opinion on something you think could use some improvements. Jupiter in your House of Home and Mercury behind the scenes could also mean that one of the areas in your life that may need some improvement is your living situation. If it turns out you can’t fix where you are then perhaps beginning a search for new digs could actually be where your next stroke of luck will be. Look around, what have you got to lose?

 

Libra- With Jupiter now direct in your House of Communication aligning with Mercury in your House of Dreams you are no doubt considering some big ideas that you’d like the world to know about. As the Sun, Venus, and Mars all slip behind the scenes into the detail oriented sign of Virgo, take the opportunity now to flesh out the necessary details for your inspirations and get your ducks in a row, especially as those three Virgo planets will be aligning with inventive and eccentric Uranus in your House of Transformation. Whatever you’re currently working on may have started out as one thing, but if you’re willing to let your subconscious come out to play then you may just end up creating that master work you always knew you were capable of. Like the great playwright Edward Albee once said, “If you’re willing to fail interestingly then you’ll tend to succeed interestingly.” Go for it!

 

Scorpio- If there is something that you’d like to see happen then what do you need to do to make it come true? As the Sun, Venus, and Mars all pull into your House of Dreams this week and align with Uranus in your House of partnerships, this is a time when you need to be networking and searching for connections between what you want and how to get it. Jupiter in your House of Self Worth aligning with Mercury in your House of Public Image should give you all the confidence and charisma you would need, so what are you waiting for? Both Pluto and Saturn retrograde in your House of Communication could have you still thinking like the old you that didn’t believe you deserved help, but since they’re living in the past right now why don’t you jump on the current bandwagon and see where it leads?

 

Sagittarius- While Jupiter in your sign and Mercury in your House of Philosophy will have you thinking big right now, the Sun, Venus, and Mars all pulling into your House of Career should provide all the nuts and bolts elements for you to move ahead significantly. Add the alignment of Uranus in your House of Work to all those planets in your House of Career and you could get a very nice surprise that will likely end up catapulting you farther than you ever thought possible. If there is a down side it will be that your responsibilities will probably increase considerably as well, but you’ve expected to pay to play all along, particularly since Saturn and Pluto have been hovering in your House of Self Worth forever. Don’t get worried and think things are suddenly moving too fast. You’ve been preparing for a while and your time has come!

 

Capricorn- As the Sun, Venus, and Mars all enter your House of Philosophy this week, you will probably be bursting with ideas. Since these three planets will also be in alignment with inventive Uranus in your House of Creativity, the truly unique thing about what’s happening to you now is that all of these inspirations that are coming down the pike are not pie in the sky, not by any means. All of your visions now can be realities if you’re willing to get out there and believe the world is ready for another point of view. After all, do you think the Buddha was Buddha or Mohammed was Mohammed in the grandest sense until certain unexpected circumstances transpired to give them a motivating kick in the ass? Such is the stuff the future is made of. If you don’t believe me then ask Jupiter behind the scenes whispering to Mercury in your House of Transformation, they’ll tell ya!!!

 

Aquarius- Change is a process, not a destination. As the Sun, Venus, and Mars all pull into your House of Transformation this week and align with Uranus at the bottom of your chart get ready to embark (or be taken away) by some life changing circumstances. With both Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes the nature of these changes will be deep, for instance they will likely be more about the way you think than the circumstances in your life, but since you’ve been wanting things to be different for a while what could be better than you changing the way you look at the world? Maybe a stifling situation won’t seem so limiting anymore if you’re no longer entertaining a limited mindset? Jupiter in your House of Groups aligning with Mercury in your House of Partnerships could see this new you attracting a whole different cast of characters into your life as well…….The more the merrier when it comes to creating a new world!

 

Pisces- With Neptune still in your sign illusion remains a distinct possibility for you when it comes to the ability to see the forest for the trees, however, with the Sun, Venus, and Mars all entering your House of Partnerships and opposing the King of the Sea, your friends, family, and lovers could be of great assistance now in helping you seeing what’s real in contrast to what you’d like to be real; that is, if you’ll listen to them. Jupiter in your House of Career aligning with Mercury in your House of Work will have you believing in shiny things and shiny people, though remember, if your heart isn’t connecting to the façade someone is presenting you, then don’t make the mistake of thinking you’re like them. Saturn and Pluto are still in your House of Dreams, which means the path to the top for you now will be slow and steady and anybody who tries to sell you anything else is only thinking of their own profits, not yours.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #92 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/15-7/21, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/15-7/21, 2019

 

 Aries- As the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde pass through your House of Home and Foundations this week to oppose both Saturn and Pluto retrograde along with a Full Moon in your House of Career, the demands of public life could end up putting an undue amount of pressure on your domestic sphere. Pay attention to someone close who you’ve been neglecting as of late and try to make the time to at least let them know you’ve been thinking of them (have you?). Mars in your House of Creativity is at the tail end of its square to crazy old Uranus in your House of Self Worth so be vigilant about losing sight of the forest for the trees and believing that whatever is going on in your life is the center of the universe. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Philosophy is trying to point out that you’ve made this sort of self-absorbed mistake before so the likelihood of being forgiven for it by people you’ve overlooked in the past is slim at best. Try and be considerate.

 

Taurus- The dilemma this week will be about what you need to say to someone as opposed to what you think they can hear without being offended. The Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde in your House of Communication will have you feeling a need to be gentle with this individual, however, with both Saturn and Pluto retrograde plus a Full Moon in your House of Philosophy and the no nonsense sign of Capricorn, you know full well that if you water down your message to this person you will be making it easy for them to ignore something that would be in their best interests to acknowledge. So what to do? Should you play the safe short game of “yessing” them to death or do you risk what is perhaps a fair weather friendship by telling them the unadulterated truth? Mars still being in orb to a square with Uranus could having you feeling very anxious about this, although Jupiter retrograde in your House of Transformation could help you learn from your mistakes and choose telling the truth as opposed to pretending otherwise.

 

Gemini- With the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde all in your House of Self Worth and the sensitive sign of Cancer, you could be feeling especially vulnerable this week, particularly with both Saturn and Pluto retrograde as well as a Full Moon all lining up in your House of Transformation to remind you that responsibility is a fact of life and as of late you have been severely lacking in that category. As Mars in your House of Communication moves closer to Jupiter retrograde in your House of Partnership, you will probably feel convinced that you can just palm off any crap you want on anyone and they’ll accept it because of the high opinion you assume people have of you, well, get over yourself. If you’ve done something wrong there will be a reckoning, although with 5 retrograde planets now it may take a minute but it’s coming. My advice, stop doubling down and try apologizing…….It may be too little too late but at least it’s something.

 

Cancer- As both Saturn and Pluto retrograde along with a Full Moon pass through your House of Relationships and oppose the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde in your sign, you are likely witnessing some of the associations in your life changing in some very unexpected ways. Perhaps someone you always thought was against you is actually neutral and could now be swinging to your side, or maybe you’re not the person you once were and some long standing grudges are just not worth the effort anymore? Either way, as Mars moves through your House of Self Worth and gets closer to a beneficial alignment with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Work it would definitely be to your advantage now to take the high road and leave any counterproductive or petty squabbles in the past. With 5 retrograde planets at this time the focus should be on review, so look back at all the times you may have shot yourself in the foot by going off half-cocked and instead try to make sure the safety is on your temper this week before you go wielding it about self-righteously, or worse, insecurely. Your time is coming if you believe in yourself……Tough question, huh?

 

Leo- You know the story about the splinter in the Lion’s paw don’t you? With the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde all behind the scenes in the sensitive sign of Cancer it’s probably time for you to stop feeling hurt by something that happened in the past and either address the perpetrator or let that shit go. Saturn and Pluto retrograde along with a Full Moon in your House of Daily Routines would suggest that any underlying depression over this matter has not only put you in a long term funk but may also be affecting your health. Mars in your sign should give you all the courage you need to either face this issue, especially as the God of War pulls closer to a beneficial aspect with regal Jupiter in your House of Creativity and Fun. What’s that trite New Age saying? Oh yeah, “Don’t sweat the small stuff; and it’s all small stuff.” If you can manage to control your gag reflex for a second and think about what I just wrote, you might realize that for you right now this is absolutely true!

 

Virgo- As Saturn and Pluto retrograde along with a Full Moon pass through your House of Creativity to oppose the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde in your House of Groups, something you have been dreaming of and working towards since forever could finally get the helping hand it needs! Mars behind the scenes in the proud sign of Leo has just passed out of a volatile square with rebellious Uranus in your House of Philosophy and will soon be moving into a beneficial aspect with Jupiter retrograde in your Foundations area, meaning that if you feel you deserve this break then make sure you make the most of it. Of course you could be just telling yourself you deserve it, but then again if you’re doing that then what did you believe in the first place if it wasn’t your eventual success? I know this sounds confusing, but success is a psychological state rather than a material one- and if you don’t believe me then just think about how many times you complained about something only because you happened to be bored? Scary thought, isn’t it?

 

Libra- Sometimes the difficulties we encounter in life are more about a necessary evolution rather than our having made any sort of mistake. As the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde march across your House of Career, expect a breakthrough in regards to something that has been holding you back despite your hard work. Saturn and Pluto retrograde plus a Full Moon going through your House of Career have been stunting your professional growth for a while now, yet realize that if you’re ever going to move forward it will have to be as a new version of yourself and not the part of you that has felt isolated and bored over the last few months. Mars going through your House of Dreams and Jupiter retrograde going through your House of Communication could see you getting a second wind as well as some inspiration as you rediscover the sort of excitement you had back in the day when you were hungry and a believer. Hallelujah!

 

Scorpio- Rebuilding takes time and since you’ve been investing in yourself for a while now expect to see some dividends coming up in the near future. Saturn and Pluto retrograde along with a Full Moon in your House of Communication opposing the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde in your House of Philosophy could see you having an effect on others at this time that could be quite surprising. Have you ever heard the saying, “Healer, heal thyself?” Well, over the past months you’ve been doing just that, so don’t be shocked if others start looking to you as someone who just might have some answers to their little dilemmas. Of course the only real answer to many of our problems is to be patient and forgive ourselves, but since you’ve already done that, don’t be surprised if you inadvertantly end up being someone’s guru, whether you like it or not. Just keep in mind not to take yourself to seriously and simply enjoy this new sense of well being…….Namaste.

 

Sagittarius- The question now is not how badly do you want to change, but rather how much will you let yourself change? There could be a whole host of reasons for an unwillingness to transform yourself, but I think for you it might have something to do with letting go of your perceived faults as well as with your sense of self worth. The Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde are all passing through your House of Death and Transformation and the emotional sign of Cancer, while in opposition to this sensitive trio are both Saturn and Pluto retrograde as well as a Full Moon in your House of Self Worth. You can be much too hard on yourself and though this is not a hot flash from the newsroom it is something that one can get used too with insidious results. Realize that self-criticism is not about what you’ve done, it’s about an unwillingness to give yourself a chance to try. Mars moving now through your House of Philosophy is about to align with Jupiter retrograde in your sign, meaning that the mental part of this process needs to stop and the doing part must begin. Endeavor to walk that walk my friend and you might just end up somewhere.

 

Capricorn- The Full Moon in your sign this week is about nothing if not practicality and as it opposes the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde in your House of Relationships make an effort to get out there and contribute something to either the community or someone you might know that’s in need. If you’ve been feeling disconnected at all from life reaching out may be just what the doctor ordered. Don’t underestimate the power of love to go around and then come around at double the investment. Jupiter retrograde behind the scenes will add an air of nobility to your intentions to do well and as he comes into a beneficial alignment with Mars in your House of Transformation and the proud sign of Leo, the love you take will no doubt at this time be equal to the love you make. To quote this guy currently running for POTUS, “Not Me US.” See the big picture.

 

Aquarius- You pride yourself on taking care of others but are you strong enough to let someone take care of you? The Full Moon behind the scenes in responsibility driven Capricorn will have you judging yourself not only on what you’ve done, but also on what you’re not doing, while on the other side of the zodiac the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde will be posing the unavoidable question you only ask yourself secretly, “when will someone take care of me?” We’re back to the strength question again and with Mars in fiery Leo passing through your House of Relationships and moving into alignment with compassionate Jupiter in your House of Groups, strength for you at this time won’t be about being a leader but trusting your intuition enough to be a follower and feel that you’re not being weak. Oh the complicated webs we weave……

 

Pisces- With both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Dreams and a Full Moon arriving there this week you will have a lot of responsibilities falling on your shoulders now and no doubt you’re whining about it like a petulant child, however, have you also realized how lucky you are? At the same time all these challenges are gathering at your door step, the Sun, Venus, and Mercury retrograde are all partying in your House of Creativity and the nurturing sign of Cancer, meaning that if help isn’t right at hand it’s well within your grasp if you’re willing to be at all enterprising. Mars transiting now through your House of Health should give you plenty of energy and as he moves into alignment with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career it would probably be a good idea to focus on some form of routine that not only strengthens your body but also disciplines your mind. With erratic Uranus on an extended visit in your House of Thinking, practicing some form of meditation may be just what you need to unleash some really powerful latent creativity.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #91 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/8-7/14, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/8-7/14, 2019

 

 Aries- With 5 retrograde planets this week things could very well seem a little bass-akwards, if you know what I mean?  Mercury gong in reverse in your House of Creativity and the dramatic sign of Leo as well as Jupiter in your House of Publishing could see a long-term project delayed by some minor snafu’s, which could annoy you to no end. Meanwhile, Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Career will be saying exactly what you’d expect to hear from them, namely “be patient, blah, blah, blah….” To add to the stress Neptune behind the scenes will no doubt be fear mongering that the difficulties will never end. The final coup de grace will come though when the Moon transits through the Via Combusta to oppose crazy old Uranus in your House of Self Worth while Mars in turn squares the old man…….A word to the wise, It’s always darkest before the dawn. If you have a hard time accepting that then try washing it down with a drink (or five)…..What can I say?

 

Taurus- Rebellious Uranus is in your sign now and he’s going to be squared this week by arrogant Mars in Leo. Add to that 5 retrograde planets (including mischievous Mercury) as well as the Sun and Venus in sensitive Cancer and you may just be finding yourself whispering under your breath, “There’s no place like home,” and subconsciously tapping your heels together out of desperation. Of course it’s not that bad, but we all know that reality is a lot about attitude and if you’re feeling that nothing is making sense and everything is against you then you will likely end up reaping that whirlwind!  Jupiter in your House of Transformation moving into an esoteric inconjunct with Venus in your House of Communication could bring some unexpected good news based on something you did at the beginning of the year that is offering a much needed dividend now……..The Universe works in mysterious ways so try not to buy too much into the necessary smoke and mirrors of what seems to be happening……..Faith is an exercise, not a fact.

 

Gemini- There are going to be 5 planets spinning retrograde this week; 2 are in your House of Transformation, 1 in your House of Communication, 1 in your House of Partnerships, and 1 in your House of Public Image……What does this all mean? If there is a paper trail (or even a trail of stale breadcrumbs) connecting you to any shady people or shady dealings from the past the time may have arrived for the chickens to come home to roost. Mars, the planet of action, will be in your House of Communication along with Mercury retrograde, so try to stop the urge to double down on your denials if you’ve been caught dead to rights. Trying to spin the facts or transfer the blame could blow up in your face if you’re not careful. The best strategy for now would be to accept what’s happening and let the Sun and Venus in compassionate Cancer help you to seek out assistance behind the scenes, that is, if anyone is still taking your calls.

 

Cancer- As 5 planets go retrograde this week you may find yourself taking more than one stroll down memory lane and thinking about things you haven’t thought about in years. Saturn and Pluto going backwards in your House of Relationships could see you reminiscing about how you met a loved one and realizing how damn lucky you are that you did. Mercury reversing in your House of Self Worth and joining with Mars will likely activate your pride as you review how you arrived at wherever you are in your job as well as how you’re going to eventually get the hell out of there.  On a more positive note, Jupiter in your House of Health esoterically aligning with Venus in your sign will have you realizing the need to change some aspects of your lifestyle if you would hope to operate at your highest performance level in the future. All in all this should be a week where you will get some encouraging glimpses of the future along with finally seeing the truth of certain things you have worried about in the past (which you didn’t need to).

 

Leo- Mercury is retrograde now in your sign and as he joins with Mars to square rebellious Uranus in your House of Career you could experience some real catharsis this week regarding both your career and how you think of yourself. Uranus in turn will be aligning with Venus behind the scenes in the emotional sign of Cancer, likely helping you realize how much of your shyness about your feelings is more about you judging yourself than others judging you. Combine this with Jupiter in your House of Creativity squaring Neptune in your House of Transformation and it should become obvious that you’ve never really given yourself a chance to show what you can do in regards to a dream you have kept secret for a while. As Saturn and Pluto continue retrograde in your House of Work it is important that you confront your confidence issues ASAP because as soon as these two transformative planets go direct it will be time to leave the womb you have allowed yourself to hide in for far too long.

 

Virgo- As Mercury retrograde and Mars crash into each other behind the scenes in your chart and square iconoclastic Uranus in your House of Career, you may not be able to swallow your pride any longer when it comes to someone taking advantage of you either at work or in a serious relationship. With Neptune transiting your House of Partnerships and aligning with both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Creativity you’ve been able to justify your subservience with this person so far in regards to eventually getting ahead, however, if you haven’t yet advanced with this strategy then it’s high time for you to show what you can do on your own and stop treating this individual with kid gloves. The Sun and Venus coming together in the nurturing sign of Cancer and your House of Dreams is all about believing in yourself and inspiring others to do the same, which would mean getting out from under any shadows being cast over you and instead be willing to try and shine on your own.

 

Libra- What represents an honest expression for you of something you’ve experienced might raise a little controversy among those who are less imaginative and insightful. Mars and Mercury retrograde will be conjunct in your House of Groups and squaring individualistic Uranus in your House of Transformation, which means by expressing a cathartic moment from your past you might inadvertently end up pressing the buttons for some current fears that exist for anyone who hasn’t been willing to face themselves in the mirror. This may lead to some uncomfortable moments (for them) but perhaps cooler heads will prevail and someone will recognize you’ve actually hit on something universal.  Jupiter in your House of Writing inconjuncting Venus in your House of Career may actually find you a champion once the nervous nellies are done having their moment and what you created can be seen for what it really is.

 

Scorpio- With 5 planets retrograde this week it might be a good time for you to recap how your year has gone so far along with what might lay in store as a result. Mercury retrograde and Mars in your House of Public Image squaring Uranus in your House of Relationships will likely bring some surprises, especially in how you think of yourself in the face of so many people recently saying such nice things to you and/or about you to others. The Sun and Venus together in your House of Philosophy represent the emergence of a new sense of belonging and compassion in your life as you now seek to connect with people when in the past you probably tried to avoid public interaction like the plague.  Saturn and Pluto in your House of Communication for the last year would have shut most people down, but oddly enough it has had the opposite effect on you. I guess all you ready needed Mr/Ms Scorpio to bring you out of your isolation was a little death and resurrection action. Welcome back to life!

 

Sagittarius- As Mercury retrograde and Mars collide in your House of Philosophy and square irrational Uranus in your House of Work, you may be brought to a harsh realization about just how bat shit crazy someone at work is and that you can no longer give them the benefit of the doubt. The Sun and Venus together in your House of Transformation would indicate that any changes for you now should have the proper support and assistance so that you will be able to move on successfully from any past conflicts. On the other hand, with Saturn and Pluto still digging graves in your House of Self Worth, make sure you are actively trying to let go of any past fears or else you may find yourself recreating the same old shit in a new location.  As the Moon passes out from the shadows of Scorpio later in the week and enters your sign you should experience a nice little buzz, like that first glass of wine after a hard day…….Cheers……You deserve it.

 

Capricorn- Saturn and Pluto are still working backwards in your sign, plus there are 3 other retrograde planets in your Houses of Confinement, Communication, and Transformation. My advice? If you have any vacation time, take it; have some drinks and let the shit show pass, if you can. Uranus will be making a long-term transit in your House of Creativity, so rest assured that opportunities and ideas will crop up to shake the tree and bring down some unexpected fruit, just don’t think about luck either way and let yourself be surprised when it pinches you on the ass. Kind of like Ringo getting invited into the Beatles……Get it? After all, you’re also going to be having the Sun and Venus passing through your House of Partnerships and the nurturing sign of Cancer, meaning that all this shit over the last few months has been for a reason, if only for you to know that you’re worthy of redemption……..Amen.

 

Aquarius- Uranus passing through your House of Home and Foundations could be either a blessing or a curse and you won’t know until something happens. Mercury retrograde and Mars passing now through your House of Relationships and the proud sign of Leo are about communication and respect as well as you getting quite grumpy if you’re not being treated the way you’d like. The bad news is that this could mean conflict with a family member, but the good news is that this person may very well deserve to have you rip them a new orifice and it will likely be quite cathartic for you to do it! Jupiter retrograde squaring Neptune retrograde in your House of Self Worth may represent the resultant epiphany regarding how this individual played on your inherent niceness as well as how you can now play with their emotions by pointing out that they’ve always been a miserable shit regardless if you did anything or not. So, didn’t that feel good? Ha ha, I thought so…..Now treat yourself to something nice, you deserve it.

 

Pisces- As the Sun and Venus in your House of Romance and Creativity pull into a luxurious trine with Neptune in your sign you may find yourself caught up in a glamorous setting that isn’t as real (or profitable) as you believe. The wake up call about this could come from Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career squaring Neptune or else erratic Uranus in your House of Communication entering into a hard angle with Mercury retrograde and Mars in your House of Routines. Either way this will be pretty much a textbook disappointment caused by over inflated expectations in turn fueled by someone else willing to lead you on. On the other hand, the good news is that this fiasco will end up freeing you from your naive illusions so that you can instead get down to some real activities that will allow you to actually accomplish something for yourself.  As they say, if the world serves you lemons then make lemonade…….Cheers!

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #89 Weekly Horoscopes for 6/10-6/16, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 6/10-6/16, 2019

 

 Aries- Mercury and Mars coming together this week in your House of Foundations and the emotional sign of Cancer could see you being more territorial than usual, especially as they oppose the threat of upheaval embodied by Saturn and Pluto in your House of Career and Public Image. Neptune behind the scenes will also be adding to your vulnerability as the planet of illusion squares the Sun transiting your House of Local Affairs. Before you get your shorts all twisted in a knot, first make sure to find out exactly what’s going on. Change doesn’t always have to pose a threat. By the end of the week when the Sun moves opposite both Jupiter and the Moon in upbeat Sagittarius and your House of Philosophy, you may have a very different perspective on what you were originally worried about.

 

Taurus- As long as Uranus remains in your sign (and that should be for quite a while) expect the unexpected, both from yourself as well as others. Mercury and Mars in your House of Communication opposing Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Philosophy could see you getting more emotional than usual about something you don’t ordinarily pay much attention to…..like perhaps Politics. Neptune in your House of Groups could see you wanting to help others who may be in need and when the Sun in your House of Earnings comes into opposition with Jupiter retrograde and the Moon in your House of Legacies,  you may suddenly feel compelled to make a sizeable donation to a worthy cause. If you feel such charity is truly the right thing to do then don’t worry about what you’re giving up; remember, what goes around comes around.

Gemini- With Venus now transiting through your sign you should try and utilize the energy of the Goddess to network for some new opportunities, particularly as both Mercury and Mars come together in your House of Self Worth and oppose both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Transformation and Shared Resources. Business is cyclical (as is all life) so if you find yourself entering a downswing don’t get frustrated, instead get a little more frugal until you can refresh your stores (of both energy and cash). When both the Moon and Jupiter retrograde come together later in the week in your House of Partnerships, you could see an unexpected reward for a favor you performed for someone way back when; the catch though is you may have to first ask for help from this person, which I know you don’t like to do, but in this case its payback not charity.

 

Cancer- As Mercury and Mars pass through your sign this week they will be opposing both Saturn and Pluto in your House of Partnership while also aligning quite nicely with Neptune in your House of Philosophy. Your ability to network and negotiate will be particularly sharp this week because, let’s face it, you’re the real deal and everybody loves an honest charmer. You are known for your dependability and natural sweetness, so whoever you need to be on your side now will likely be eating out of your hand like a hungry goat at a petting zoo. Take full advantage of this and don’t feel guilty. As James Earl Jones remarked in “Field of Dreams” regarding the idea of building a ball field in a corn crop, “They will come, for it’s money they have and peace they don’t…..” You have the unique and valuable ability to make people feel comfortable…..Let  them feel the security of  being able to trust someone……You’ll be glad you did.

 

Leo- Saturn and Pluto retrograde going through your House of Routines have been shaking things up for a while, and while Neptune in your House of Transformation has been helping you roll with the punches, things may be a little different now that Mercury and Mars are joining together behind the scenes in the emotional sign of Cancer. There’s nothing worse than a cowardly lion (just ask Dorothy) and the time might be here for you to roar like your birthright. Either a situation or an individual is pushing you toward a confrontation and, while you’ve been managing to avoid it until now, the time may have finally come for you to fight the good fight.  When the Moon enters Scorpio mid-week and opposes Uranus in bullish Taurus, you could likely gain a surprise leg up on an adversary; take full advantage and ju-jitsu the sucker with his own venality. Boo yeah!!!

 

Virgo- If you are a progressive minded person this could be the time to speak truth to power and actually see some results. Mercury and Mars in your House of Groups should make you both eloquent and formidable, and as they both oppose Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Creativity you may actually be able to get through to someone in power and be able to help them see the writing on the wall for their greedy and elitist ways. As Jupiter backs up and comes into a T-square with both the Sun and Neptune, make sure you don’t overestimate an organization’s ability to compromise, after all they’re only coming to the table now because they know they’ve been cornered dead to rights. Realize they are helping their own selfish asses first and those they’ve victimized are a distant afterthought.

 

Libra- The Lunar Arc this week will be passing through the Via Combusta and your Houses of Self Worth and Communication, meaning that it may be time for you to speak up on something that is not only necessary but a matter of honor as well. Mercury and Mars in your House of Career should make you more than a little insightful, while an opposition of these planets to both Saturn and Pluto in your House of Symbolic Foundations will help to make your words more important than you realize. Neptune in your House of Routines could help you to see through an illusion about what is being offered in a specific situation just so you’ll be challenged to find out the truth for yourself. With Jupiter in your House of Communication opposing the Sun in your House of Philosophy, you might actually end up becoming the visionary change that everyone else seems to have just been talking about.

 

Scorpio- If you have been annoyed by someone for as long as you can remember, the time may finally be here when you will actually be able to see beyond this person’s obnoxiousness and into the insecurity that drives their boorish behavior. Mercury and Mars in your House of Philosophy opposing both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Communication will initially make you want to rip this person a new orifice (as usual) however, as Neptune imposes his compassionate ways in your House of Creativity you will gain the vision of deep psychological insight and hence forgiveness for this poor, ignorant (and none too bright) individual. Jupiter retrograde in your House of Self Worth and the Sun in your House of Transformation will together motivate you to take the high ground and treat the person in question like the silly child they are…..And who knows, perhaps in the end you may be able to show them the healing path…….Namaste.

 

Sagittarius- The time for change has come, unfortunately you’ll probably have to be dragged kicking and screaming into any circle of enlightenment. Mercury and Mars in your House of Transformation and the emotional sign of Cancer opposing both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Self Worth are likely making you view change now as a sort of enema, although as any doctor will tell you, relax and everything will be fine. Neptune in your House of Foundation is likely causing you to see everything as a lot worse than it is, especially as he squares Jupiter retrograde in your sign, which can be the King of Drama if you let him. Venus in your House of Relationships could be your saving grace in the form of someone who will actually fall for all your whining and offer some real help. Congratulations you lucky dog.

 

Capricorn- Rather than not getting what we want, much of unhappiness often comes from not knowing what we want. With Mercury and Mars coming together this week in your House of Relationships and aligning nicely with Neptune in your House of Communication, the time has come for you to open up to someone close about your recent confusion because they may very well be mistaking your disgruntlement as a dissatisfaction with them. Having Uranus in your House of Creativity and Romance now could make you seem a bit zany although that might not be a bad thing if it changes your mood and unexpectedly brings out your more romantic nature. Later in the week the Moon will join Jupiter behind the scenes in your chart where they will remind you what the right thing to do is involving a misunderstanding. Don’t be proud, just do it!

 

Aquarius-Change is inevitable, so when it smiles at a person all they can do is smile back. Mercury and Mars in your House of Routines opposing both Saturn and Pluto retrograde behind the scenes could be making it feel like a rug is being pulled out from under you, although if you can hear Neptune in your House of Self Worth whispering in your ear you should follow his advice and “let go,” for as a poet once wrote, “It was all meant to go, then comes love.” The Sun in your House of Creativity opposing Jupiter retrograde in your House of Dreams could very well be about revisiting something that might not have been a good idea when you first thought of it, but may be the solution you’re looking for now. As Uranus transits your House of Foundations realize that this is a time of not only surprise questions but surprise answers as well, so don’t be afraid to make a calculated guess……You may be right!

 

Pisces- “The times they are a-changin’” so don’t assume you can know anything that is going to happen in this crazy world. Mercury and Mars in your House of Creativity will provide you with plenty of insight and energy provided of course you can keep your level of worry manageable. Neptune in your sign is both a blessing and a curse, meaning if you can just stop wanting something so bad you can taste it you might actually stand a chance of getting it……Sound counter-intuitive? Well then you’re about to find out what intuition really is, namely detachment. Of course you don’t know what I’m talking about, but you’re about to find out as Jupiter retrograde opposing the Sun in your House of Symbolic Foundations is turning your world upside down from ignorance to enlightenment…….Praise be, first you were lost, now you’re found!

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #86 Weekly Horoscopes for 5/20-5/26, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 5/20-5/26, 2019

 

 Aries- As Mars enters the security oriented sign of Cancer and your House of Symbolic Foundations to align with Venus and Uranus in your House of Self Worth, you could find yourself speculating about possible rainy days ahead and what you might do to avert them. Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Career will also have you thinking about where your career might be going, especially with Neptune behind the scenes causing you to wonder if you want to continue along the path you’ve been on. As Mercury enters the Communication oriented sign of Gemini and the House it naturally rules, this could be the perfect time for you to start exploring the possibilities of doing what you’d like to for a living instead of what you have been doing just to make ends meet. As the Lunar Arc crosses your Mid-heaven make sure to get out there and explore the possibilities, you might be exactly what someone is looking for.

 

Taurus- Venus in your sign will have you desiring the best for yourself at this time, while Uranus in your sign and Mars in your House of Communication could find you all too willing to fight about it if anyone tries to deny your naturally materialistic nature. With both the Sun and Mercury entering the quixotic and chatty sign of Gemini, try to channel any frustration you may be feeling about what’s not working out for you now into some challenging mental exercise, perhaps in the form of a hobby or taking a class on something you’ve always wondered about but never took the time for. Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Philosophy aligning with Neptune in your House of Dreams could steer you toward an artistic endeavor, especially since Venus in your sign is already activating your good taste and you’re feeling particularly inspired; go for it!

 

Gemini-The Sun will enter your sign this week officially marking the beginning of Gemini season, during which time it will be aided and abetted by Mercury, the planet of both Communication and Business as well as your sign’s ruler. If you’re feeling ambitious (or insecure) this could be a particularly frenetic time for you as Uranus and Venus together behind the scenes will be flaming your desire for the good things in life while Mars in your House of Self Worth will have you feeling like life isn’t worth living unless you have the best of everything. This type of manifest destiny is what topples empires so be careful, although with both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Transformation you won’t be getting anything in the near future that you haven’t earned so, rather than drive yourself crazy, why don’t you instead try to calm yourself down with something like meditation or tai chi? Or perhaps even thinking about someone else besides yourself?

 

Cancer- Mars entering your sign this week should give you a burst of energy, especially as it aligns nicely with Venus and Uranus in your House of Dreams making you feel like you’re ready to give yourself a break from the trials and tribulations of taking care of the whole world by yourself. While escaping is a nice notion, we both know that you will continue to feel like everyone’s good time is dependent upon you, meaning you’ll probably channel that Mars energy into making damn sure everyone has what they need so you don’t go crazy listening to them complain. Sound nutty? Welcome to the cave of logic the crab creates by digging itself into the surf. Saturn and Pluto retrograde together in your House of Relationships aligning with Neptune in your House of Long Distance travels could find you both enjoying some time away and missing a loved one at the same time. We’re back to the crab digging itself into the beach so, if you can get to the shore why don’t you join your crustacean totem for a swim and get back to where this all started regarding you enjoying yourself.

 

Leo- With Venus and Uranus in your House of Career this week you could be exactly what someone has been looking for, however, don’t be too available just yet. Make sure to ask yourself, are they what you’ve been looking for? Mars behind the scenes in the sensitive sign of Cancer could have you feeling insecure, which might find you willing to settle for less just to be liked. Really? While Neptune in your House of Transformation is about letting go, that doesn’t mean disappearing into the shadow of someone else’s ego, particularly as the God of the Sea is aligning nicely with the rock of Gibraltar twins, Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Work, who are asking you to change like a rock erodes; slow and steady, in no rush to give in, but going with the flow. This is about your confidence baby……as the saying goes, “Strength bides its time while weakness feels a need to act.”

 

Virgo- Lots of things around you are changing at this time but the question is, are you changing? With four major planets now at the top of your chart, Venus and Uranus in your House of Philosophy and the Sun and Mercury about to enter your House of Career, what are you currently doing to manifest some of those gold plated dreams you like to strategize about? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity and Neptune in  your House of Partnerships would suggest that you can’t conquer the world by yourself at this time, but on the other hand are you the best playmate you can be? Jupiter retrograde in your House of Foundations would indicate that some renovation is needed before you can start to build your stairway to heaven, yet are you willing to break your ego down to the studs to facilitate a complete overhaul of not only how the world sees you but how you see yourself? A word to the wise, our ability to accept help depends on whether or not we feel deserving. Chew on that for a while.

 

Libra- Mars has just crossed your Mid-Heaven so you may surprise a few people at this time by acting more like an Aries than a stereotypical Libra. Whether this is good or bad will have a lot to do with how deeply you may want something as both Venus and Uranus graze in the sign of Taurus and your House of Transformation. After all, a bull can be a lot like a cow until you wave a red flag in its face. Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Foundations have either taught you some patience over the last year or not and you’ll no doubt find out which when Neptune in your House of Daily Routines either delivers your expectations on time or fails to do so. The Lunar Arc this week will progress from your House of Communications (where it meets Jupiter retrograde) to your House of Creativity, meaning success for you now could be more about the process than the result. Ordinarily this would not be a problem for a Libra, so remember who you are.

 

Scorpio- With Venus and Uranus in your House of Partnerships activating Mars entering your House of Philosophy, the success of your interactions with others at this time will not be about acceptance or passivity, but rather about your ability to take action, meaning you’ll need to either extend an olive branch or take the tiger by the tail in order to break through some people’s ambivalence (or games). You’re in control now (whether you realize it or not) so leadership skills will be more valuable to you at this time than simple good manners or being agreeable. That’s not to say that Creativity won’t offer you an advantage as well, especially as Neptune in your House of Creativity aligns with Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Communications and you’re able to figure out ahead of time exactly what someone wants to hear and then find an inventive way not to placate them. To be so unapologetically real is a big step for you now, so take it, and enjoy a new bullshit free relationship with the world.

 

Sagittarius- Whatever you’re hoping to change right now should be helped along magnificently as Mars enters your House of Transformation, particularly if you’re looking to improve a process at work or perhaps even streamline your body. Doing it with someone else could also be to your advantage, as both the Sun and Mercury will be entering your House of Partnerships, so hire yourself an assistant or find an exercise buddy. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth aligning with Neptune in your House of Foundation is about fundamental change, and fundamental is a word combining both fun and mental, meaning that it is just as important to enjoy whatever you’re doing as it is to get the results you desire, especially if the whole process is supposedly to feel better about yourself. Meanwhile, Jupiter retrograde in your sign should help with the whole philosophical point of view that it is the journey not the destination that’s important. In other words, just keeping putting one foot in front of the other and you’ll eventually get there.

 

Capricorn- As Mars enters your House of Relationships and moves into an alignment with Venus and Uranus in your House of Romance, expect the unexpected this week, particularly in the legendary Battle of the Sexes. With Saturn and Pluto in your sign for a good long time now you have been reconstructing yourself for a while, so perhaps it’s finally time to get out there and see how you interact with the other kids? Of course someone special may stand out from the others, just try not to get nervous. They’re probably not following you around because they’re a hit man and someone’s taken a contract out on you, more likely it’s because they find you attractive. The Sun and Mercury moving into the social sign of Gemini and your House of Health may be trying to tell you that if you want to start feeling better about life, then perhaps you should try embracing it instead of requiring it to find you like a private detective. Jupiter retrograde behind the scenes is like a big dog who’s been raised with little dogs and doesn’t realize its size, meaning you should get out there and start practicing how to stretch into your true self. After all, you never know who might try to pet you while you’re working it out….. Woof! Woof!

 

Aquarius- As Mars enters your House of Work and aligns with both Venus and Uranus in your House of Home, this could be the perfect time to start those desperately needed repairs in your house or apartment that you’ve been avoiding.  Saturn and Pluto retrograde behind the scenes may reveal there’s a lot more wrong here than you realize, so the quicker you get to it the less likely it will be that something turns into an emergency. Neptune in your House of Self Worth could have a dual effect on you now, either making you lazy or inventive. Assuming that you’re not sick or unhappy, if getting motivated is a problem for you at this time, then simply let yourself be influenced by someone who is pressing you to get something done, you may end up thanking them later on for being an inadvertent muse. After all, whatever doesn’t annoy you lets you become complacent.

 

Pisces- You may have recently caught someone’s eye who thinks that you’re just the most…….So what do you plan to do about it? Mars entering your House of Romance and aligning with Venus and Uranus in your House of Communication is all about the Look of Love, so if you recognize it then let your imagination run around as scantily clad as possible, after all, with Neptune in your sign now romance should come as second nature to you. As the Sun and Mercury enter your Foundation Area you could be feeling as free as a bird or as flaky as a box of Kellogg’s, just don’t let yourself get swept away so far you forget who you are and what your real life responsibilities entail. Saturn and Pluto aligning with Neptune now could see you very close to completing a project that has been lingering for a long time, just make sure the aforementioned romance occurs only after you’ve crossed the finish line with any work that needs to be done.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #85 Weekly Horoscopes for 5/13-5/19, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 5/13-5/19, 2019

 

Aries- As Venus gets ready to exit your sign she will enter into a nice aspect with Mars in your House of Communication, meaning that you could be getting some good news regarding a matter you would like to see move forward. Shortly afterwards, both Venus and Mars will change signs, Venus going into her native sign of Taurus and Mars entering security oriented Cancer. This could signal a lucky break, especially since Uranus will also be involved, indicating that there may be an unexpected surprise in store in the form of a windfall return from a situation you were actually starting to worry about. While this all sounds good, don’t get too optimistic just yet. The Full Moon in power oriented Scorpio over the weekend will be in your House of Transformation where it will oppose a stable Taurus Sun, meaning that any sudden luck you experience could disappear just as suddenly if you start convincing yourself it is the new norm and begin slacking.

 

Taurus- With Mercury pulling closer to the Sun in your sign and charming Venus (your ruler) about to conjunct freaky Uranus, you could be experiencing quite an internal conflict between your naturally conformist nature and your equally natural sensuality. As a famous Occultist once said, “Sin is the word of restriction,” so don’t deny yourself your natural urges. As Mars move into your House of Communication and the emotional sign of Cancer, realize that if you deny yourself something on one level that urge will likely just end up leaking out somewhere else, which could be embarrassing. The Full Moon this week will be in your House of Relationships and the power oriented sign of Scorpio, meaning that if you won’t stand up and state your needs don’t expect anyone else to be a mind reader.

 

Gemini- Mars will leave your sign this week with a flourish as he aligns nicely with Venus in your House of Groups. This could make you quite popular, especially with Jupiter in your House of Relationships meeting up with a diplomatic Libra Moon midweek. Later on as Venus moves behind the scenes into the sensual sign of Taurus, Mars will enter your House of Self Worth and together these two should find you quite ambitious for both fun and material gratification. Add Uranus to this mix and you’ll probably be willing to do whatever it takes to get whatever you desire; just try not to dehumanize anyone in the process, after all, when you treat people like objects they tend to resent it and with Saturn and Pluto still retrograde in your House of Shared Resources you can’t afford to alienate anyone from your cause at this time.

 

Cancer- With a stellium of planets in your House of Friends now you may be feeling like there is not enough of you to go around. Among this group are the Sun and Mercury, who together will likely have you feeling obligated, while on the other hand Venus and Uranus arm in arm could attract every freak in the vicinity to your mothering nature. Try to take advantage of Mars when he enters your sign later in the week to find the strength to say “no” to the energy vampires and lazy slobs who would otherwise suck you dry. There are those who will truly need your kindness and compassion at this time, just try to differentiate them from the users and abusers. The Full Moon this week will be in your House of Creativity, which could find you either sublimating your natural creative urges into satisfying others needs or else running away to someplace remote where you can be alone and paint your masterpiece. Don’t feel guilty about doing whatever feels right.

 

Leo- With the Sun, Mercury, Uranus, and Venus all in the stable sign of Taurus and your House of Career, this is a time when you need to suck it up and do whatever is necessary to get yourself ahead. Of course Taurus can also be a lazy sign, so make sure you’re aware that your complacency could be your biggest enemy right now, especially if you find yourself making excuses for not getting out of a situation that you know sucks and you have been trashing non-stop for a while now. The longer you put off what needs to be done on the career front the harder this weeks eventual Full Moon is going to be, especially since it’s occurring in your House of Symbolic Foundations and opposing the aforementioned Sun in your House of Career. It’s important for you to realize that while this is not a particularly comfortable time for you, it is a period that you will eventually look back on and be glad you did all the practical stuff you didn’t want to.

 

Virgo- The more desperately you try to hold on now to a person or situation that is changing away from you, the more that individual or circumstance will buck like a wild bronco at a rodeo. Like the song say’s, “Man, ain’t that a kick in the head,” yet it doesn’t need to be. Jupiter retrograde in your Foundations Area and Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Creativity can help you to let go of a job or relationship that isn’t working, but not if you feel you need to win whatever the argument has been and prove the other person wrong. Nobody’s right or wrong, things just need to change. As Venus and Mars enter new signs and your Houses of Philosophy and Dreams respectively, the potential is there for you to finally be who you are without apologies or excuses, the price though will be to extricate yourself from whoever or whatever has been holding you back. The Full Moon in your House of Communication and the passionate sign of Scorpio will be all about speaking your truth to whomever with no reservations…..So, what are you waiting for? Start singing that body electric!

 

Libra- This is a time when what you’re experiencing will provide the subject matter for stories that will eventually make others laugh and think, even though what’s going on now in your life may, in fact, be making you quite frustrated. The Sun, Mercury, Venus, and crazy, unpredictable Uranus are all marching through your House of Transformation, which likely feels both uncomfortably weird and like it’s taking forever. Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your Foundations Area is no doubt further warping your sense of time, while Neptune in your House of Daily Routines is completely messing with your ability to get a clear read on anything. Nonetheless you are still both driven and creative at this time (believe it or not) and if you think I’m shitting you all I ask is that you try to remain patient (a dirty word) and stay focused on your goals until Jupiter finally goes direct again in August. I know this sounds like a prediction, but in actuality it’s only a matter of you having faith in yourself. “You gotta believe!”

 

Scorpio- Did you ever think you’d be so popular (and loved)? The Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Uranus are all going through your House of Relationships now, which means if you’re not the center of attention yet then you’re about to be. This will be both good and bad as Saturn and Pluto are both retrograde in your House of Communications and aligning with Neptune in your House of Creativity, meaning that while some people you might be dealing with now could have an agenda, it’s more likely that the folks who are stepping up to help are doing it because they truly like and respect you. Jupiter in your House of Earned Income is currently retrograde, so don’t expect to see the light at the end of the tunnel yet if your income has lagged in the face of some mounting bills. As the Full Moon in your sign later in the week opposes all those previously mentioned Taurus Planets, try instead to look at your current emotional support system as all wealth you need; as the song goes, “Baby, you’re a Rich Man…”

 

Sagittarius- If your health (or appearance) has been a concern of late, then now would be the time to take action and try to establish a new regimen for yourself as the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Uranus are all in your House of Health. Add to this Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Self Worth and you might actually have the discipline now to stick to whatever program you start. Jupiter retrograde in your sign can also contribute to rebuilding your vanity if you take his lead and imagine bigger things (or conversely a smaller appearance) for yourself. As Mars pulls into your House of Transformation your energy should be high for the rest of the month, so make sure you capitalize on the Warrior Planet’s strength and determination to establish something good for your sense of  health and well being at this time.

 

Capricorn- e.e. cummings once wrote, “let all go dear/so comes love” and with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Uranus all in your House of Creativity banging around like dice in a cup, perhaps this is the time you should let things roll and see what happens? Mars entering your House of Relationships could be about reaching out (if you let it) while Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your sign could be about fundamental change (if you’d accept it) both of which are admittedly a gamble, but to win it you gotta be in it. Neptune in your House of Communications and Jupiter retrograde behind the scenes are both about letting something happen as opposed to making something happen, which is a hard thing for an action oriented sign like you to understand, so perhaps you could think of it this way, it takes more confidence to wait for the right time than it does to rush ahead in hopes of finding the right time.

 

“Patiently waiting

Like a dew drop hanging from

A banana leaf”

 

Aquarius- No one ever expects an earthquake, yet when the dishes start rattling on the shelves it would probably be prudent to get under a doorpost as soon as possible and wait until the world seems stable again. I’m mentioning this because with the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Uranus all in your House of Foundations along with Saturn and Pluto retrograde behind the scenes, if it feels like your world is shaking you should probably accept it and head for the nearest doorpost. Of course Mars entering your House of Routines will likely have you feeling anxious at this time, especially as it angles with Uranus, however, rather than rushing in where angels fear to tread, perhaps you should instead follow Neptune’s lead as it crosses through your House of Self Worth and simply try to find a place where you can best wait out the current circumstances until you can fully assess the damage.

 

Pisces- If your emotions seem to be overwhelming you now and there is something you need to say to someone special but don’t know how to begin, then perhaps you should engage your artistic abilities and look to create a metaphor of whatever it is you’re feeling. With the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Uranus all in your House of Communication and lining up nicely with Mars entering your House of Creativity, your message will likely be more poignant now if you can trust your intuition to connect the dots rather than trying to edit yourself and avoid any potential vulnerability. Neptune in your sign represents the soul of the poet and as it aligns with Saturn and Pluto retrograde you are especially in tune now with another’s wavelength, therefore, let your energy and its honest expression speak for you now rather than attempting to explain the unexplainable or eff the ineffable.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #84 Weekly Horoscopes for 5/6-5/12, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 5/6-5/12, 2019

 

 Aries- Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Career are likely stalling your ambitions from moving forward at this time, which undoubtedly offends your usual full speed ahead mentality. Mercury and Uranus in your House of Self Worth will be conjunct by the middle of the week, no doubt fueling anxiety and motivating you to start venting on somebody if shit doesn’t start moving along the way it should. It is important now to try and remain patient and remember the old adage, “All things must pass.” Let Venus in your sign and Mars in your House of Communication give you a little tutorial on persuasion and charm, which will probably work out a lot better than smashing someone over the head with what you want them to do.

 

Taurus- Your usually placid nature could end up becoming quite anxiety ridden at this time as two very volatile planets that rule the nervous system, Mercury and Uranus, pass through your sign. The unsettledness of also having both Saturn and Pluto retrograde together in your House of Philosophy isn’t helping much, as those two will serve to either make you want to flee like a rat from a sinking ship or else set the house on fire for the insurance. Of course neither extreme is useful, so try and listen as charming Venus behind the scenes and Mars in your House of Self Worth attempt to motivate you to be resourceful and, most importantly, optimistic. Listen to Neptune in your House of Dreams as he aligns with a Cancer Moon midweek to try and steer you toward the high road…….and no, that doesn’t mean you should self medicate.

 

Gemini- Mercury and Uranus behind the scenes could motivate you to try and continue with a disingenuous strategy in regards to getting your way in a particular situation. At the same time, Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Transformation aligning with Neptune in your House of Public Image could end up making any subterfuges you attempt at this time appear quite transparent to anyone who is paying attention; in short, it’s likely that no one will believe your lies right now other than you, so a word to the wise…come clean and the mess in question may end up being manageable on the back end. Venus in your House of Groups and Mars in your sign will give you plenty of energy, although try to utilize this power slowly and steadily with a methodical plan rather than firing random shots in the air and hoping to hit something.

 

Cancer- The way things are now could be quite stressful for you as both Mercury and Uranus, the nervous system twins, come together to hold hands in your House of Groups. This doesn’t necessarily have to be like running into the two creepy little girls from “The Shining,” particularly if you can decide to focus instead on keeping a smile on your face, especially as Venus passes through your House of Public Image and aligns with Mars behind the scenes. If you can adopt a “kill them with kindness” attitude, then you just might stand a chance as Saturn and Pluto ravage your House of Open Enemies and cause some long term adversaries to shoot themselves in the foot instead of abusing you with their hubris. You will be having a personal New Moon this week as well, so let Neptune in your House of Philosophy lead you beyond a need for childish emotional safety to the higher ground of spiritual enlightenment. Namaste.

 

Leo- As a fixed sign you like things to be regular and dependable, although right now with Mercury and Uranus colliding in your House of Career things on the job are anything but, especially as the Moon in your sign during the week could see you losing control of yourself if someone else’s incompetence ends up foiling any of your well laid plans for the coming weekend. If you find yourself asking in exasperation, “what am I doing in this madhouse,” don’t expect either Saturn or Pluto in your House of Routines to tell you what you’d like to hear, particularly with Neptune in your House of Transformation waiting around for things to change on their own when you need to change them yourself.

 

Virgo- Have you had enough yet? Mercury and Uranus skidding into each other in your House of Philosophy would indicate that perhaps you have, particularly with Venus in your House of Transformation squaring off against both Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity, making it hard to continue doing the same thing over and over while hoping for a different outcome. On the other hand, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Foundations is aligning quite beneficially with Venus, meaning that perhaps the universal plan all along was that you’d need to get pissed off before you would actually act in your own best interest and do something different? Maybe up until now it was just easier to complain and remain complacent? As the Sun aligns with Neptune in your House of Relationships (and Open Enemies) perhaps now you’re seeing exactly how a partner has been manipulating you by acting like they’re so disappointed all the time?

 

Libra- With the Sun, Mercury, and Uranus all going through your House of Transformation, expect the unexpected this week. Venus in your House of Relationships will be aligning with lucky Jupiter as it retrogrades through your House of Communication, meaning that perhaps there is a good chance that a seed you sowed sometime in the past may actually bear some surprising fruit. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Foundations have been sounding the death knell on the old you and the outmoded circumstances of your past, so is it really a surprise that eventually a dark night of the soul would turn into a brand new day as the world turns? Mars in your House of Philosophy would indicate that if something does unexpectedly change for the better, you’d do well to be ready to hop aboard that tramp steamer as it sets sail to some unexpected destination where the new you awaits!

 

Scorpio- Having both Uranus and Mercury conjunct in your House of Relationships now might mean that somebody close may surprise you this week, which could be either a good thing or a bad thing. Neptune in your House of Creativity and Fun aligning with Mercury could mean that you’ll weather this surprise with the necessary aplomb, although you may still be weirded out by the circumstances anyway. Venus in your House of Health aligning nicely with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Self Worth could have you finally understanding the cumulative effects of a course you’ve been pursuing for a while, meaning that where once your life had seemed rudderless, now you’re following a definite course due north to feeling better. As the Lunar Arc transits across the top of your chart expect to be a little more in demand than usual, although over the weekend you may just want to do your own thing despite the good intentions of others……No worries.

 

Sagittarius- Jupiter retrograde in your sign this week will be aligning with charming Venus in your House of Creativity and Romance, so don’t be surprised if an old flame resurfaces with a new box of matches. Of course at the same time Venus will also be squaring both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Self Worth, therefore, make sure that this blast from the past isn’t looking to burn down your self esteem again rather than toasting marshmallows next to a cozy fire. Mercury and Uranus together in your House of Routines could be the writing on the wall that this aforementioned individual will be a disruptive influence indeed, although that may be just what you need to determine once and for all whose interests should start coming first in your interactions with others. You can do bad all by yourself.

 

Capricorn- Responsibilities, responsibilities, responsibilities, so what else is new? Mars in your House of Routines aligning with Venus at your Foundation may have you craving an escape from your perceived servitude, although Jupiter retrograde behind the scenes aligning with the aforementioned couple might try to suggest that it’s not an escape you need but rather peace of mind. Neptune in your House of Thinking and Short Journey’s will likely suggest meditation or some other esoteric modality and you should probably give it a try if it seems like it might help. Why? Because as Mercury and Uranus bump into each other in your House of Creativity you could encounter a bizarre challenge that has transcendence written all over it if you can just see the forest for the trees. “Somewhere over the rainbow” could be somewhere inside of yourself if you can just manage to experience your mind for once as something other than a dictionary of pejorative terms.

 

Aquarius- As the Sun, Mercury, and Uranus all pass through your House of Home and Family, you may find yourself feeling very anxious about the security of you and yours. Of course it sucks to feel this way, but with Mars in your House of Creativity, Venus in your House of Communication, and Jupiter retrograde in your House of Dreams and Groups, perhaps the only way your hopes for safety can come true is if you are motivated to follow your intuition out of the box of fearful logic that has you trapped in a past that no longer exists? Of course Saturn and Pluto retrograde have a lot to do with this negative motivation, so rather than partaking in it again, why don’t you instead recognize how doing the same thing over and over hasn’t gotten the result you wanted? No doubt faith will have more than a little bit to do with your ability to change, so as Neptune enters your House of Self Worth be ready to turn paranoia into perceptiveness with a little help from your friends.

 

Pisces- Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your House of Groups squaring Venus in your House of Self Worth could have you feeling very insecure about being judged harshly in the future, or even failing to attain a goal you’ve set for yourself. On the other hand, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career  aligning nicely with Venus would probably indicate that you’re better prepared than you think for any challenges that may be awaiting you. That’s not to say though that shit won’t get weird, or even crazy, particularly with Mercury and Uranus joining together in your House of Communication and local activities. The trick here is to realize that state of mind is everything, especially as Neptune in your sign lines up with a very practical Sun in Taurus and your House of Thinking. As a famous Occultist used to say, “It’s all in your head, you just don’t know how big your head is.”

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #80 Weekly Horoscopes for 4/8-4/14, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 4/8-4/14, 2019

 

 Aries- To paraphrase a well known classic, “It is the best of times, it is the worst of times.” As the Sun passes through your sign to align with Jupiter in your House of Philosophy it brings high hopes, while at the same time it is also squaring Saturn and Pluto in your House of Career to bring both challenges and change. The presence of Mercury, Venus, and Neptune behind the scenes could contribute to either your illusions or enlightenment, depending of course on whether your sense of self comes from within or if it is merely a reflection of the current fashions and judgments of others. Uranus in your House of Self Worth is a knee jerk reaction waiting to happen, which Mars in your House of Communication could turn into a notorious incident if you’re so inclined. As the Lunar Arc travels across your Houses of Foundation and Creativity, try to see the forest for the trees when it comes to your actions and consider the saying, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Salud!

 

Taurus- Jupiter going station/retrograde in your House of Transformation and aligning with the Sun behind the scenes could mean that the initial excitement of a recent situation is about to turn into a considerably less glorious responsibility in the near future.  Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy have been trying to tell you, “be careful what you wish for,” but since you’ve gotten what you wanted now you’re  going to need them to be your maintenance team. Just make sure you don’t allow Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Groups to make you too much of a doormat. Just because some folks told you what you wanted to hear to get you interested, doesn’t mean they can take advantage of you once you’ve signed on the dotted line. In the meantime, I hope you like surprises because Uranus in your sign should be bringing home some doozies.. When all is said and done though, Mars in your House of Self Worth could be your best friend right now, as he gives you all the mojo you’ll likely need to swim this “English Channel” you have waiting.

 

Gemini- Mars entering your sign will likely provide a burst of energy, the question is where will you direct this power? Jupiter going station/retrograde in your House of Relationships and aligning with the Sun in your House of Dreams could be trying to tell you to pay attention to an association with someone important that you’ve let fall by the wayside. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation have been trying to warn you of coming changes for a while, but now that they’re also aligning with both Mercury and Venus in your House of Public Image and Career make sure you don’t take anything for granted in regards to your future prospects and/or your reputation. “What have you done for me lately” may sound callous, but at least now others will know what it felt like when they blew you off. Payback can be a b*tch, so get ready to move ahead.

 

Cancer- As the Sun passes through your House of Career and aligns with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Work, expect some of the recent drama on the job to subside. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Partnerships has likely changed your tune regarding how much responsibility you’re willing to accept without knowing what’s in it for you, while at the same time Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Philosophy have inspired you to realize the difference between what you can change and what’s supposed to change you. Unfortunately, Uranus in your House of Groups will likely bring more lessons along this line as some unexpected craziness enters into your sphere. Go with these annoying developments as best you can and try not to get too caught up in thinking you could have avoided any of it; Uranus just rolls that way. Mars behind the scenes could inspire you to do some research and explore new possibilities, so try and look at this new motivation as the antidote for Uranus and go for it.

 

Leo- If you have been harboring any aspirations to do something different with your life, the Sun aligning with Jupiter going station/retrograde in your House of Creativity could mean that this is the time when that hope either dies forever, or else you finally get your ass in gear and decide to do something about it. With Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in watery Pisces and your House of Death and Transformation, you may have come to this realization in a painful way, nonetheless, you’ve seen what is necessary, now what do you want to do next? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Routines are there if you have to figure out how to make time for what you’d like to do, no matter how busy (or tired) you profess to be, while Uranus in your House of Career represents the part of you that’s “mad as hell and isn’t going to take it anymore.” As Mars traverses your House of Dreams dare to believe that you may be as talented as you’ve always dreamed…Now prove it!

 

Virgo- If you have been contemplating any home improvements or are even considering moving, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Home aligning with the Sun in your House of Transformation could mean that this is the time to either restructure or change your humble abode. Saturn and Pluto together in your House of Creativity is like having your own private contractors, so trust your ideas on what you want, but more importantly, believe that you can make it happen. Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Partnership could indicate that you may need to seek outside help in manifesting your visions and stop looking for approval from an unsupportive partner. With this in mind, let Uranus in your House of Philosophy inspire you to do something different than what hasn’t worked in the past and let Mars in your House of Public Image show the world you can be a mover and shaker on your own terms.

 

Libra- As Jupiter in your House of Communication goes station/retrograde and aligns with the Sun in your House of Partnerships, you may end up hearing from someone out of the past who can help you with a current problem. Saturn and Pluto at the bottom of your chart have been setting the stage for some big changes, however, sometimes auspicious circumstances can sneak in the back door instead of barging through the front. Mercury, Venus, and Neptune are all passing through your House of Work so let yourself be influenced by unexpected circumstances; you may be a lot better at improvising and flying by the seat of your pants than you ever suspected. Uranus in your House of Transformation and Mars in your House of Long Distance Communication may help to transport you to the exact place outside of your expectations that you need to be in order to succeed. Go with the flow!

 

Scorpio- Jupiter going retrograde this week and aligning with the Sun in your House of Health could make you feel overwhelmed if you have been under the weather. Mars in your House of Transformation should help you to keep up with all these new changes, although as he starts to approach a square with a stellium of planets in Pisces you may be longing for an escape. Where to go? Uranus in your House of Relationships may see you receiving an unexpected (and much needed) invitation from a friend to get away from your life for a while. You may not be able to go to Bali, but anywhere that would bring you to a different place in your head would be a welcome respite. Bon voyage!

 

Sagittarius- Jupiter going station/retrograde this week in your sign and aligning with the Sun in your House of Fun may be trying to tell you it’s time for a vacation. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Self Worth have been keeping your nose to the grindstone forever, but with Mercury, Venus, and Neptune crossing the bottom of your chart it looks like it’s time for you to sneak out for a little par-ty, if you get my drift. If you don’t, Uranus going through your House of Work and Mars going through your House of Enemies could see some crap go down at work that will find you saying to yourself, “I should of listened to Mr. Saturn and cashed in some of my time….now I gotta put up with this shit!”

 

Capricorn- If you have been putting off facing some issues either at home or within yourself, consider taking the time now to fix whatever it is that’s broke as Jupiter goes station/retrograde and aligns with the Sun. For a while now Saturn and Pluto in your sign have been putting the weight of the world on your shoulders and as they align with Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Communication this may be the time for you to find someone to speak with about how you feel, especially since problems tend to always seem bigger if we keep them bottled up inside. Uranus in your House of Creativity and Mars in your House of Health would further suggest that some form of Art Therapy or, for that matter, any sort of class would be an excellent way to de-stress and put things in perspective. In other words, take the time to do yourself a favor and try something new.

 

Aquarius- With Jupiter going through your House of Groups over the last few months it has probably felt like you’ve been on stage non-stop, 24/7. If that’s the case, then when the King of the Planets goes retrograde this week you might want to try to spend some time with those you’ve been neglecting. Mercury, Venus, and Neptune in your House of Self Worth will likely have you feeling more vulnerable than usual and as these planets align with Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes, getting together with loved ones at this time may just be about you needing them rather than their needing you out there protecting them from anything. Unpredictable Uranus going through your House of Family may furnish some surprises, particularly if you end up realizing that your home is your ballast rather than your career. With that said, take this respite you’ve managed to arrange as a time solely for fun and trust that your work will be waiting when you get back.

 

Pisces- If you’ve been on a roll as of late you might see things start to wind down this week as Jupiter goes station/retrograde in your House of Career. Of course you may not be happy about this, especially as Jupiter aligns with the Sun in your House of Self Worth and squares Mercury and Venus in your sign. You can’t be “on” all the time, so instead of taking this recent down cycle as an indication that maybe you’re losing it, instead look at this period as a time to re-evaluate and rejuvenate yourself in order to come back and kick some serious new ass in the coming weeks. Saturn and Pluto might very well have some constructive criticism to give about revamping your plans, so make sure you slow down and give them a listen; in terms of your long-term success you’ll be glad you did.
