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

 

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

 

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

Let’s all drink to the death of a clown

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la”

-The Kinks

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #48 Weekly Horoscopes for 8/13-8/19, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 8/13-8/19, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Here we are in the Dog Days of August (woof! woof!) with 6 retrograde planets (soon to be 5) making it look like we still have a long, hot “Summer in the City” in front of us.

“All around, people looking half dead

Walking on the sidewalk, hotter than a match head”

 

Aries- With Mars retrograde backing up from your House of Dreams into your House of Career, it looks like there’ll be no rest for the weary this week when it comes to turning your dreams into reality. Saturn retrograde is also in your House of Career, and as it aligns with Uranus retrograde in your House of Self Worth and squares Venus in your House of Relationships, try not to complain too much about having to go over everything yet again before you can move forward toward whatever your goal is. Jupiter in your House of Transformation aligning with Neptune behind the scenes is all about compassion, so try not to be too hard on anyone if you’re not getting what you want because, if truth be told, with 6 retrograde planets to start the week we’re all in the same rut at this point and complaining about it won’t make anything better.

 

Taurus- Expect Uranus retrograde in your sign to shake things up, especially as it aligns with Saturn retrograde in your House of Philosophy to let all sorts of sacred cows out of the pen in your “everything’s got to be just right world.” Venus in your House of Routines will further contribute to this anarchy as it also aspects Saturn, so try your best to see the silver lining if your comfort zone ends up getting dragged through the mud of inconvenience so that it ends up becoming soiled beyond recognition. If it seems like nothing is going to be easy this week then the surprise will certainly be on you, as Jupiter in your House of Relationships aligns with Neptune in your House of Friends to bring either a Florence Nightingale or a Mr. Clean into your life for some relatively delightful damage control. If you have any sort of romantic maid or workman fantasy be prepared for some serious role playing…….Oooh la la !!!

 

Gemini- Uranus retrograde in your House of Confinement is probably making you feel like a tiger in a cage, and as it aligns with Saturn retrograde in your House of Transformation you’re also probably feeling like feeding time will never come, hence you are likely going to be one angry cat this week. Nevertheless, try to be cool and not to scratch anyone or else your impetuousness might end up getting your head on the wall of some wannabe big game hunter who ordinarily wouldn’t be able to hit the broad side of a barn. Mars backing up into your House of Shared Resources would suggest you try to play nice no matter how bad things seem: in other words, do the tricks they want you to and act like a pussycat. As noble Jupiter aligns with compassionate Neptune maybe one of those people going “Awwwwh” in the audience over how hard you’re trying to be nice will help you get out of that cage you’re stuck in and offer a chance at a new life as a “Fat Cat.” Purrrrrrrr!

 

Cancer- Mars backing up into your House of Relationships and Open Enemies could serve to reopen an old wound that you had hoped was healed. With Saturn and Pluto retrograde in that House as well, maybe your having to revisit this is about finally letting go of the past rather than going for revenge and another round of combat with a particular individual. Jupiter in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune in your House of Philosophy would speak to your enlightenment in this situation, but only if you can find the courage to believe in your finer qualities and not react to what an adversary is accusing you of, mostly because it makes their sorry ass look a whole lot better than it is. Uranus retrograde in your House of Groups and Dreams is all about breaking free from the past, “so put all those troubles in your old kit bag and smile, smile, smile!!!”

 

Leo- If you have been feeling withdrawn over the last few weeks, Mercury going station/direct in your sign and aligning with Venus in your House of Communication will likely make you want to get back out there and throw that charm around once again, especially if it can help you out in regards to a dispute with an older individual at work. This person represents the past and you are the future, so let Uranus in your House of Career inspire you to let your freak flag fly in the face of their curmudgeonly whining. No body likes them, people just feel guilty about telling an old fart they need “Beano.” Jupiter in your House of Home and Family aligning with Neptune in your House of Transformation may require you to grow with a family situation rather than abandoning it as you had planned. Sorry, but you’re the natural leader here, so get to work and wrangle those spoiled brats!

 

Virgo- Mercury going station/direct in your House of the Secret Self and Mars backing into your House of Creativity will likely have you rethinking something you had thought was a good idea but is really no longer materially feasible. Neptune in your House of Relationships aligning with Jupiter in your House of Communication could make expressing this to the involved parties a bit difficult, mostly because of an unwillingness on your part to tell it like it is. With Uranus retrograde in your House of Transformation aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity, don’t confuse being true to yourself in circumstances which have changed for the worse with feeling guilty about disappointing someone who has never really had anyone’s interests in mind but their own. Don’t be afraid to do you and let the chips fall where they may, after all, they’re mostly your chips.

 

Libra- Mars has backed up from your House of Creativity into your House of Foundations, meaning the time has probably come for you to ask for some feedback on something you’ve been working on that could benefit from a fresh perspective. Mercury going station/direct in your House of Dreams and aligning with Venus in your sign would further indicate that any editorial help you need is there for the asking, the question is, why won’t you ask for it? Jupiter in your House of Self Worth aligning with Neptune can help address any problems you might have about your deservedness, which is the far more important issue here and ultimately something you can only answer for yourself. At this point enter Uranus retrograde in your House of Transformation asking you bluntly what the hell the problem is about you feeling worthy, while at the same time Saturn retrograde is saying, “You heard the man, answer the question!” Well, answer the damn question!

 

Scorpio- Uranus retrograde in your House of Relationships aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Communication could make you the unexpected object of desire for a person either much older or younger than yourself. This doesn’t have to be awkward or any sort of big deal if you can just keep in mind that Saturn is also squaring Venus in your House of Secrets, meaning the attraction may be more about lust than love on your part. Mercury going station/direct in your House of Public Image would warn you to be careful here and try not to be too cavalier in private with someone you don’t really want to be seen with in public. Jupiter in your sign aligning with Neptune in your House of Romance may make you think this situation is harmless, but you really don’t know what this individual’s agenda might be, so try to have some foresight here and remember the Dylan song, “Go ‘way from my window/ Leave at your own chosen speed/ I’m not the one you want, babe/ I’m not the one you need.”

 

Sagittarius- Mercury going station/direct this week in your House of Philosophy and Jupiter in your House of the Inner Self could end up having a very revelatory influence now, as it slowly begins to dawn on you that no matter what the circumstances of your life are, it does matter deep down what you believe. Things are not hopeless. You can make a difference. Mars moving backward into your House of Self Worth should help you to understand that the cynic you have pretended to be for all this time was only a mask, a defense mechanism covering a very deep sadness at the corruption of the world. You’re actually a sensitive soul; do you realize that makes you strong and not weak? You might be speechless at this point, but all I have to say is “whoa!” You know what this means? YOU CAN BE HAPPY! Right now! Go ahead, laugh right in the face of the nearest asshole and enjoy yourself. It’s their problem, not yours.

 

Capricorn- Don’t turn the other cheek to a critic, counterpunch with another idea. Mercury going station/direct in your House of Transformation along with Jupiter in your House of Dreams are working together so that you will have the confidence to let the inspiration of Neptune in your House of Communication express itself; like Picasso releasing his one-eyed women on the world.  With this in mind, Mars backing up into your sign should provide the necessary fuel now for the slow, steady upward climb from the depths of a creative idea’s inception to the apex of its expression. In turn, Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity aligning with Saturn in your sign should serve to impose order upon the chaos and set the stage for the clear intuitive voice in the back of your head to announce defiantly into the deafening silence, “Let there be light.”

 

Aquarius- With Mars moving back into your House of Confinement, you will now have a total of 3 retrograde planets working behind the scenes to turn something you cannot outdistance from the past into your most immediate challenge. Who were you then, and how has what you’ve done since influenced who you are now? Uranus retrograde in your House of Foundations could furnish some surprises as you try and work this out, especially if whatever you did in the past doesn’t seem to reflect well on the person you’re pretending to be now. Jupiter in your House of Public Image aligning with Neptune in your House of Self Worth will try to conceal this contradiction, although as Jupiter also squares this weeks Mercury station/direct in your House of Relationships, someone close to you may inadvertently discover something you’d prefer to remain a secret and it could change the whole landscape of your association. Venus in Libra will make you want to continue the subterfuge if you can, but then who would you be; do you even know?

 

Pisces- Neptune in your sign for the past few years has probably been making your life seem like a cross between a funhouse hall of mirrors and a London Fog, although on the bright side you’ve probably also managed to stumble over a few important lessons during this time as well. With 6 retrograde planets now, including Uranus in your House of Communications and Saturn in your House of Career, you’re certainly not out of the woods yet, although with Mercury going station/direct in your House of Daily Routines you should be able to finally get some traction in terms of any immediate problems either at home or on the job, and with Venus in your House of Shared Resources you might even discover some valuable new friends along the way. “Follow the Yellow Brick Road.”

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

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

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

 

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

 

”Can you see the real me preacher?

Can you see the real me doctor?

Can you see the real me mother?

Can you see the real me?”

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #44 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/16-7/22, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/16-7/22, 2018

 

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

I will be using a term in this weeks horoscopes that some of you may not be familiar with, it’s called the Via Combusta or “Fiery Way” and it refers to an area in the chart that runs from 15 degrees Libra to 15 degrees Scorpio. As you can probably guess from the name, this stretch of the Zodiac is considered a no man’s land of sorts, where if things could possibly break bad they likely will, especially if it involves a transit of the Moon (which just happens to be there this week). In fact, among practitioners of Horary or “Predictive” Astrology, it is generally felt that if the Moon is transiting the Via Combusta it is usually best to simply trash the whole horoscope and try casting another one after the Moon has moved on.

I hope the inclusion of this interesting little tidbit will prove to be helpful, as some of you will end up being affected by this controversial transit over the coming week.

 

Aries- With Marsretrograde in your House of Dreams squaring Uranus in your House of Earnings, don’t plan on spending any money this week that you don’t actually have in your hand, not that you won’t eventually get it (by the time Venus aligns with Jupiter over the weekend you probably will) but cash flow problems could be a distinct problem at this time. Neptune retrograde in your House of What is Hidden and Pluto retrograde in your House of Career  will likely mean something you’ve been working on for a while could get delayed, which could actually turn out to be a blessing in disguise, so try not to lose your shit, okay?  The Lunar Arc through the Via Combusta might end up testing a friendship so try to walk away if someone just isn’t getting it, it’s their problem, not yours.

 

Taurus- As the Lunar Arc moves through your Houses of Work and Relationships it will be transiting the Via Combusta, so be careful in your interactions with co-workers, especially toward the end of the week when a Scorpio Moon conjuncts Jupiter; let any catty or snarky remarks slide, you’ll be glad you did, especially as Mars retrograde in your House of Career squares up with Uranus in your sign. Getting down in the mud with someone who’s just not worth it could very well have you biting off your nose to spite your face, so be careful. With Jupiter now direct in your House of Relationships and moving into alignment with Venus in your House of Romance, the weekend could end up dealing you a lucky encounter that will make up for any other crap that may happen this week. Keep your eyes open.

 

Gemini- Have you ever heard the phrase, “don’t shit where you eat?” It speaks directly to workplace romances so try to keep it in mind before you let anything happen between you and a co-worker, especially since the Lunar Arc will be transiting the Via Combusta and that can be trouble, particularly with Uranus behind the scenes in your chart squaring Mars retrograde. Make sure not to let a minor flirtation turn into an unhealthy attraction or, God forbid, the passion for an ill-fated affair just because you may be bored and need a little excitement. Neptune transiting your House of Public Image will make anything you do that’s even a little shady look infinitely worse, so don’t even think about being a home wrecker or sneaking around anywhere; people will hate you for it and you could get hurt.

 

Cancer- All you Cancer parents out there be on your toes. The Lunar Arc transiting the Via Combusta will be going through your Houses of Home and Children, where it will first square and then sextile Pluto in your House of Relationships. This could mean that you need to start treating your grown up baby like an adult if their age indicates that it’s time they started acting like one. Or perhaps you literally do have babies, if that’s the case then you may need to start laying down some rules (and penalties) if these little ones are needing some boundaries. Jupiter is also in your House of Children and as it aligns with Neptune in your House of Philosophy you will want to be both generous and helpful to your offspring, just make sure that when Jupiter aligns with Venus in Virgo over the weekend that you have not lost the farm due to your willingness to make everyday Christmas regardless if someone’s been good or not.

 

Leo- Try to be more sensitive around family members this week as the Lunar Arc transits the Via Combusta and your Houses of Communication and Home. Mars retrograde in your House of Relationships will be squaring Uranus in your House of Career, so if your frustrated for whatever reason at work try not to bring that anger back to the hacienda if you can. Particularly since Jupiter is also in your House of Home now and when that Via Combusta Moon hits the King of the Planets some real down and dirty exchanges could result. If you can manage to keep your frustration on the down low until Venus eventually advances through your House of Self Worth and aligns with Jupiter, then the charming side of you will be all anyone sees. Until then, use the Neptune transit through your House of Transformation to put up the best glamour you can.

 

Virgo- You try to be respectful, but if anyone violates your particular sense of decency then all bets are off, so just make sure that as the Lunar Arc transits the Via Combusta and your Houses of Self Worth and Communication that you don’t end up being an unwanted policeman in someone else’s district. Uranus in your House of Philosophy squaring off with Mars retrograde in your House of Routines could have you incensed at an unexpected mishap that you feel is the result of some unfairness either on the job or at home; it’s one thing to be annoyed, but please, try not to get emotional about it as you may end up making the situation worse instead of better. As Venus moves through your sign she will eventually align with Jupiter over the weekend, therefore, if you can keep your criticisms of a person or a situation within reasonable boundaries, you could find yourself the unexpected Master of Ceremonies aboard a happy ship sailing into next week.

 

Libra- Your natural sense of fairness could be challenged this week as the Lunar Arc traverses the Via Combusta that runs between your sign and your House of Self Worth. Jupiter is also in that House of Self Worth so try to remain patient if someone without a clue tries to act like they know it all. Uranus in your House of Transformation squaring Mars retrograde in your House of Creativity could mean that the Universe has sent you this buffoon as an unwitting teacher, so try not to shoot the messenger. Instead, use Venus moving through your House of Inner Realization as a meditation on patience as she aligns with Jupiter, then let the Goddess calm the savage beast, just like the maiden closing the jaws of the lion in the Tarot Card titled “Strength.”

 

Scorpio- Are you ready for an adventure? Specifically into the dark confines of your self where all the Scorpionic Mysteries reside? A word to the wise, it ain’t going to be like Harry Potter and the Basilisk, more like 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the giant squid, just sayin’. As the Lunar Arc this week goes through the Via Combusta, it will pass over your horizon (otherwise known as your Rising Sign) and emerge into the light like a piece of abstract art emerging from your subconscious. Neptune in your House of Creativity should be right in time with this, especially if it turns out you’re into the art thing. Uranus in your House of Relationships squaring Mars retrograde in your House of Foundations will probably end up making your intimate encounters about as Freudian as they can get, as a result, be prepared for partners to be a little in awe of you, as few can dazzle others with their darker sides better than the Scorpion. Some may think this mysterious part of you that’s being exposed is sexy, but that sort will be a dime a dozen. With Jupiter in your sign now, choose to gravitate toward those who can appreciate your Mystical side; they’ll be the keepers.

 

Sagittarius- Who are you really? The answer provided by the Lunar Arc passing through the Via Combusta this week will probably surprise a few folks, as that stretch of Zodiac for you goes over the cusp between the House of Groups and the House of Confinement, or the face you let the world see as opposed to the face you only reveal when the Moon is Full and it’s the Witching time. You usually wear your mask well, but with Uranus in your House of Healing and Mars retrograde in your House of Communication, you may not be able to keep the hounds locked up now if someone crosses your path at the wrong time. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth might help to keep the beast in you at bay, but maybe whatever transpires will end up being about the victim’s lesson rather than the predator’s; with that said, anyone who messes with you now deserves whatever they get. Rrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!

 

Capricorn- This will likely be a testy week for you as Mars retrograde going through the sign of Aquarius and your House of Self Worth will be approaching an explosive square with Uranus in your House of Creativity. What others may be demanding of you now could turn out to be quite annoying, especially if you really need to be taking care of your own affairs. As Venus slowly moves into a lucky sextile with Jupiter in your House of Dreams, some of the demands being made of you now could inadvertently lead to the discovery of certain untapped resources within yourself that could turn out to be quite valuable. With Pluto and Saturn currently in your sign and both of them retrograde, it is a given that deep changes will be going on for you for a while, although occasionally you may get an unexpected break (like this week) and end up ahead of where you ordinarily would have been if you weren’t inconvenienced. The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away; Blessed be the name of the Lord.

 

Aquarius- With Mars retrograde in your sign this is probably not the time to be pushing forward with any new projects, but don’t let anyone try to tell you that. Uranus in your House of Symbolic Foundations will provide the ants in your pants, while Saturn retrograde behind the scenes will provide the frustration, all you need now is the proper illusion and you’ll be all set to make a wonderfully stupid mistake. Jupiter in your House of Career aligning with Neptune in your House of Self Worth could fit the bill, as their particular combination of ego and fog should have you over extending yourself in truly epic ways. Mercury inconjunct Pluto will have you wanting to get to the truth, though as the Moon transits the Via Combusta across your Mid-heaven you won’t want veracity as much as you want attention, so the week will likely end with a spectacle, let’s just hope it’s not you falling off the high-wire; although Venus aligning with Jupiter will act as a safety a net, so you should be okay in the end. Whew!!!

 

Pisces- Trust could be a big issue for you now as the Moon crosses the Via Combusta, which spans your Houses of Transformation and Philosophy respectively. Jupiter will be there too and as he aligns with Neptune in your sign it’s not that you’ll be suspicious of anyone, on the contrary, if anything you’ll be too trusting and that could lead to some real problems, especially if it involves other peoples money (or lack thereof). Mars retrograde in your House of Confinement will likely have you throwing caution to the wind, and as he squares Uranus in your House of Communication whatever you overlook now out of impatience will most certainly come back to bite you on the ass in the near future. Mercury inconjuncting Pluto as it approaches its station/retrograde phase could have you listening to the wrong people, therefore, try not to let someone who wants to purchase something of yours convince you it’ll be okay if they owe you for it.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #43 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/9-7/15, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/9 -7/15, 2018

 

Hi kids!!!

 

SCOTUS Haikus

“The right to choose is

Universal Law, not just

That of any land

 

If freedom can be

Given or taken away

Then no one is free

 

Let Congress and the

President take note, no one

Has that many votes.”

 

Aries- The New Moon this week in your House of Symbolic Foundations opposing Pluto retrograde in your House of Career will likely bring up some loose ends in a project you’re involved with that may require you to rethink, or even rework, something you were convinced was a done deal. At first this could be very frustrating for your “full speed ahead” mentality, but with Venus entering Virgo and your House of Work and forming a Grand Earth Trine with Uranus in your House of Earnings and Saturn retrograde in your House of Career, any t’s you have to re-cross or I’s you have to re-dot will make you quite glad you did, especially since Jupiter also goes station/direct this week in your House of Death and Resurrection, meaning that any steps back you have had to take as of late will no doubt result in at least two corresponding steps forward quite soon.

 

Taurus- Your attitudes have been changing for a while, but it will likely be this week that you’ll finally see someone different when you look at yourself in the proverbial mirror. Uranus currently in your sign has had a lot to do with this, but now that it is approaching a Grand Earth Trine with Venus entering Virgo in your House of Creativity and Saturn retrograde in your House of Philosophy, expect to witness yourself doing and saying things that you never would have thought possible just a few months ago. A good part of this change in yourself might seem awkward with the New Moon in emotional Cancer and your House of Communication opposing Pluto retrograde in your House of Philosophy, as you find that sharing more of yourself will leave you feeling more vulnerable than what you were brought up to think was proper and/or safe. Don’t worry, with Jupiter going direct in your House of Relationships you’re a big boy/girl now and could probably even teach Mom and Dad a thing or two about being an adult.

 

Gemini- With the New Moon in the sensitive sign of Cancer and your House of Self Worth opposing Pluto in your House of Transformation, this needs to be a time of necessary compromise on your part if you expect to accomplish anything at all. The approaching Grand Earth Trine of Uranus in your House of Confinement, Saturn retrograde in your House of Transformation, and Venus in your House of Symbolic Foundations, would speak to the need to adjust to the unexpected as though it were a great new idea you don’t understand yet, as opposed to something that either frightens or disappoints you. You should also be careful of a tendency to take the path of least resistance when you’re confronted with making a mistake. In other words, don’t play the blame game or be willing to lie just to get out of an awkward moment, especially if there are witnesses or people committed to finding out what the truth is; Try not to be made an example of for something that’s hardly worth sacrificing your reputation and standing for, especially if it ends up with you be hung in effigy in the public square.

 

Cancer- The New Moon in your sign this week opposes Pluto in your House of Relationships and aligns with Jupiter going direct in your House of Creativity and Romance, which could mean that you may finally start to feel like you’re coming out of a long funk that has made the Summer up until now feel like nothing more than a cloudy day at the beach. A Grand Earth Trine between Uranus in your House of Groups, Venus in your House of Communications, and Saturn retrograde in your House of Relationships could see you reconnecting with old friends and getting your social life back on track like it was before the last set of exciting changes you remember turned into what has recently become a new obstacle course of stressful responsibilities. If you can manage to stay in the moment instead of dwelling on a negative past or fearing an uncertain future, then you should be able to, as the song goes, “Take it to the limit, one more time….”

 

Leo- If you have been unwilling to confront your emotions, a setback at work could trigger you to finally admit how dissatisfied you are with how your life seems to be slipping away without anything to show for it. At first this will be really depressing, but then a Grand Trine in earth comprised of Uranus in your House of Career, Venus in your House of Self Worth, and Saturn retrograde in your House of Work could likely end up motivating you to get your ass in gear and do something different than just complain and maintain the status quo. Jupiter going station/direct in your House of Symbolic Foundations and the deep, dark sign of Scorpio should be a motivating force as it chafes against outspoken Mercury in your sign, who it turns out is envisioning so much more for you than what you’re currently doing. If you feel you’re currently lack confidence, Mr. Saturn would suggest that you stop thinking of it as a pre-requisite one must start with, instead courage is usually something you acquire along the way after first being naïve enough to be absolutely sure of something and then finding out otherwise.

 

Virgo- As Venus enters your sign this week it will first trine Uranus in your House of Philosophy and then trine Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity, which could result in a sudden desire to head in a new direction and abandon something you’ve been working on for a while. Your natural critical faculties will be on hyper alert now, so pay attention to what you’re actually doing by projecting whatever it is you subconsciously don’t like about yourself onto an activity that up until now has seemed important to you. The New Moon in your House of Dreams opposing Pluto retrograde in your House of Creativity is a cathartic influence, for sure, but maybe you’re really supposed to confront your lack of internal motivation now instead of abandoning a ship that may not actually be sinking?  Jupiter going station/direct in your House of Communication, where it will both trine Neptune in your House of Relationships and square Mercury behind the scenes, could be the cue for you to reach out and talk to someone about what’s bothering you before you act out something with a friend or partner you may regret later.

 

Libra- This week’s New Moon in your House of Career opposite Pluto in your House of Symbolic Foundations may end up speaking to some deep seeded ideas that you’re going to have to let go of in order to succeed in the future. Venus entering your House of Confinement could bring up issues of self-love as she aligns with both Uranus in your House of Transformation and Saturn retrograde at the lowest point in your chart, meaning the time is ripe now for you to take a new approach regarding the expectations you have about what you deserve in life. The danger here is that you’ve inadvertently confused the low road with the high one in so far as you’re all to willing to always be the better person as the shmucks and hustlers are getting the better stuff. The Universe will always make room for true excellence, so stop believing that only shit rises to the top; that may be true in a cesspool but that’s not where you are or what you’re offering. As Jupiter goes station/direct in your House of Self Worth and squares Mercury in your House of Dreams, be willing to point out to others how you are that multi-faceted diamond in the rough and then trust people will be able to sense the difference between quality and plonk.

 

Scorpio- As Jupiter goes station/direct this week in your sign and squares Mercury in outspoken Leo, this could be the time to make a case for yourself on the career front. Your ambitions during this period should also be supported by the New Moon in your House of Philosophy opposing Pluto in your House of Communication, which is about the confidence to ask for what you want rather than waiting for it to be offered. A Grand Earth Trine of Uranus, Venus, and Saturn retrograde will be occurring in your Houses of Partnerships, Dreams, and Communication respectively, so make sure you get out there and let the world know you’re available. Anytime Uranus is involved there is a possibility for a surprise, so be willing to reach beyond whatever you think your current capabilities are; you’re ready to move to the next level and you just might get the opportunity!

 

Sagittarius- Co-dependency can be a truly insidious thing because it can sneak up on you before you realize what’s happening. Hopefully Jupiter going station/direct behind the scenes in the power driven sign of Scorpio and squaring Mercury in your House of Philosophy will help you to realize that by trying to constantly win with a negative person you’re only becoming just like them! The New Moon opposing Pluto retrograde in your House of Self Worth represents the need to liberate yourself as soon as possible from these kinds of energy vampires in your life, and that means do what ever you need to do; wear garlic, carry a wooden stake, get a gun with silver bullets, just do it! Uranus in your House of Work will be part of a Grand Earth Trine this week with both Venus in your House of Career and Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth, meaning that any efforts you’re willing to make to push your prospects in the workplace now could see an opportunity appear unexpectedly, just like the air bubbles that let you know the fish are biting! Cast that line!

 

Capricorn- As this weeks New Moon opposes Pluto on your Relationship axis you’re going to have to decide what needs to go, either a person you’ve been with too long, or the practical, logically unassailable excuses you always come up with about being too busy for a relationship? Uranus in your House of Romance could end up bringing something unexpected as it aligns with Venus and upsets the apple cart in your House of Long Distance Affairs, perhaps drawing to you an exotic stranger who gets under your defenses and seduces you with their mysterious style? As the saying goes, nothing is true, everything is permitted, so why not let yourself go? Jupiter going station/direct in your House of Dreams and aligning with Neptune in your House of Communication could serve to soften you a little, so that when Mercury in your House of Intimacy makes that pass you will follow like the sailors who were drawn into the rocks by the Sirens; Oooh la la !!!  Hurts so good, doesn’t it?

 

Aquarius- The New Moon in your House of Work opposing Pluto behind the scenes could very likely represent the changes you’ve been hoping for, that is, if you can get out of the rut of believing that better times must necessarily always be in the future; perhaps you are overlooking something quite special that’s been right in front of you all along? As Jupiter goes station/direct in your House of Career and squares Mercury in your House of Partnerships, what may look like a difficult situation could actually be just the challenge you need to show what you’re capable of? A Grand Earth Trine in your Houses of Foundations, Legacies, and Hidden Things would insinuate there might very well be buried treasure right in your back yard, but only if you can discontinue your habitual skepticism and aren’t adverse to a little digging. What have you got to lose anyway, except what you’ve convinced yourself of that may not be true?

 

Pisces- The Sun in your House of Creativity opposing Pluto in your House of Dreams could be about realizing that your future success may be more about what you need to let go of rather than what you need to acquire. Jupiter going station/direct in your House of Philosophy will help you with this, as it squares Mercury in your House of Work and brings you to the realization that you’ll never earn anymore than you think you’re worth. Keeping that in mind, how much do you value yourself as opposed to needing someone else’s approval? This week’s Grand Earth Trine in your Houses of Communication, Dreams, and Relationships would suggest putting more time and effort into being what you feel you need to be rather than what someone else may need you to be. Likewise, Mars retrograde behind the scenes in your chart at this time is more about strategy than action; so take a few moments to be clear on whom you are before you try to prove to anyone what you are.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #42 Weekly Horoscopes for 7/2-7/8, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 7/2-7/8, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! With 5 retrograde planets now in the heavens, plus Mercury in ego driven Leo squaring Jupiter and inconjuncting Neptune, get ready for some down and dirty (and unbelievably annoying) bickering this week between Rump and the Congress over trying to railroad a Supreme Court appointment through at the expense of our rights. It reminds me of the Charles Bukowski quote, “Arguing politics is like trying to screw a cat in the ass.” God help us all!!!

 

Aries- With retrograde planets currently in your Houses of Career, Transformation, Dreams, and Confinement, you are more dependent now on circumstances and what others need to do for you than ever before and it’s driving you crazy! Just make sure you don’t go crazy! This weeks Lunar Arc will be well aligned to Uranus for its duration, which could either be a blessing that will help you find your Zen, or else it could turn out to be a glorious but devastating bonfire as you angrily burn some bridges behind you like an angry Hun. If there is a lesson for you this week it would have to be along the lines of what the Byrds were trying to communicate when they put music to the verse from the Bible that goes, “There is a time for every purpose under heaven.” Amen.

 

Taurus- You are generally a patient sign, but events this week will likely put even your inherent placidity to the test. The illusion of believing you can control what others do will come up for some major review now as well, as both Mars and Jupiter retrograde challenge Mercury as the Messenger Planet travels through the impetuous sign of Leo assuming his opinions are law, or at least unquestionable. Uranus in your sign aligning with the Lunar Arc all week will have you asking and likely answering your own questions, especially if you don’t like the answers that the people who are causing the problems are trying to pawn off on you. If there is one thing to keep in mind this week it is this;

 

God grant me the serenity

To accept the things I cannot change;

Courage to change the things I can;

And wisdom to know the difference.

 

Gemini- As a mutable air sign you can always envision the possibilities in any given situation, however, where you are often lacking is in thinking through the specifics and/or considering the feelings of those you expect to help you. With retrograde planets this week in your Houses of Career, Philosophy, Transformation, and Routines, this is not a time to be pushing the envelope no matter how many ants are in your pants making you want to dance! Mercury and Mars are opposing each other on the Leo/Aquarius axis with both in turn at harsh angles to Jupiter retrograde in humorless Scorpio, meaning don’t try to run any bullshit up the flagpole about how you’re so concerned with others welfare, everyone knows you’re trying to blow smoke up their ass and they may just decide to mess with you for spite. A word to the wise, “Tell the truth, it’s the easiest thing to remember.”

 

Cancer- If you remember the old Popeye cartoons it was usually necessary for him to first get pretty beaten up by Bluto before he would then pull out his spinach and kick some serious butt. As the Sun passes through your sign and trines Neptune in your House of Philosophy and Jupiter in your House of Creativity, the time for taking shit from people along with thinking less of yourself or your ability to change your circumstances is rapidly coming to an end. Even though there are 5 retrograde planets now, the time is nevertheless ripe for strategizing about what you need to do and who you need to be to do it. The Lunar Arc all week will be aligned nicely with Uranus first, then Mars, then Uranus again, so dare to think that you deserve that gold ring you’ve been dreaming of, you might just surprise yourself and end up getting it in the not too distant future.

 

Leo- With both Mercury and Venus in your sign you can be quite the charmer now, and along with Mars retrograde in your House of Relationships you might just be able to convince a stubborn person in your life to relax and consider trying things your way. A family responsibility may be weighing heavily on you now, so try to share what you’re feeling with a loved one. With the Sun in Cancer behind the scenes aligning with Neptune in your House of Death and Transformation, perhaps your worries for someone close are actually because of your own deep seeded fears and not because anything is really wrong. Saturn retrograde in your House of Work in harmonious aspect to Uranus in your House of Career might just result in an older person on the job taking you under their wing. This could be just the break you need!

 

Virgo- There are 5 retrograde planets now in your Houses of Work, Relationships, Creativity, and Communications, so the time is ripe to review where you are, who you’re with, where’s it going, and what needs to be fixed? The answers may not be apparent to any of these questions just yet, but they do need to be asked and you do need to be honest with yourself. Neptune retrograde aligning with Jupiter retrograde will help you to be forgiving of yourself and others if things haven’t quite worked out the way you’d hoped, just make sure you’re not blaming yourself for something that might have resulted from someone else’s lack of interest, commitment, tolerance, or whatever. The last thing the world needs is another self-critical Virgin, really! Uranus in your House of Philosophy aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Creativity may be about either an older or younger person needing a little guidance from you. Trust that you have what they need and be generous with your time, you could make a big difference in this person’s life.

 

Libra- A Grand Trine this week between the Sun, Jupiter retrograde and Neptune retrograde in your Houses of Career, Earnings, and Work respectively would seem to be pointing to a resurrection of sorts if things have been slow. Add to this Pluto and Saturn in your House of Symbolic Foundations and Uranus in your House of Transformation and we’re talking about a lucky break, quick turnaround, or perhaps just managing to be in the right place at the right time. Whatever you’ve been working on creatively, Mercury in theatrical Leo opposing Mars retrograde in your House of Creativity could very well suggest you may be on to something that’s a lot bigger than you realize, the caveat though is that it’s not quite the right time yet to show it to the world. In the meantime, make sure to keep plugging away at it so you will be ready when opportunity does come knocking, and it will!

 

Scorpio- With Jupiter retrograde, the Sun, and Neptune retrograde forming a Grand Trine now you are probably chomping at the bit to move forward in your career, but the Universe is saying, “not so fast,” as Mars retrograde in your House of Foundations engages in a tug of war with Mercury in Leo transiting through your House of Career. Pluto retrograde in your House of Foundations could be the reason some news you’re waiting for is delayed, however, with Uranus in your House of Relationships aspecting Saturn retrograde this communication will probably come when you least expect it and could contain much better news than you had originally hoped for. As the song goes, “You can’t always get what you want, but if you try, sometimes, you get what you need.”

 

Sagittarius- The Sun is transiting through your House of Transformation and forming a Grand Water Trine with both Jupiter and Neptune retrograde, which will probably find you feeling a flood of emotions as the health of a loved one could end up taking a turn for the worst. A lot could fall on your shoulders because of this with Uranus in your House of Routines aligning with Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth, just don’t try to do everything by yourself if there are other family members in the vicinity who can pitch in. In others words, if you can’t save the world then who will save you if you go down? Mercury in your House of Philosophy could have you searching for answers to a question that may be destined to remain a mystery for the time being, as Mars retrograde in your House of Communication will probably find you leaving messages for someone in power that just won’t be answered.

 

Capricorn- If you feel an unexpected pinch in a vulnerable place on your body sometime this week, it could be one of Cupid’s arrows finding its mark. The Sun in your House of Relationships is forming a Grand Water Trine with Jupiter retrograde in your House of Friends and Neptune retrograde in your House of Communication, meaning that someone close by (perhaps an associate at work?) could possibly be harboring secret feelings for you and they just might be ready to declare themselves. Uranus in your House of Romance squaring a Mercury/Mars opposition in your Houses of Intimacy and Self Worth respectively will no doubt have you feeling both flattered and embarrassed by the attentions of this new suitor, however, be careful not to let the situation gain any traction if you feel it might end up ruining another scenario that is much more valuable to you. In other words, don’t shit where you eat!

 

Aquarius- Mars retrograde in your sign opposing Mercury in Leo in your House of Relationships could see you having a serious disagreement this week, either with a loved one or a co-worker. The fact that Uranus is squaring the Mars/Mercury aspect as well as aligning with Saturn retrograde behind the scenes, could also mean that this confrontation really shouldn’t be a surprise. In fact, it’s likely based on a power struggle that has been simmering under the surface for a while. With the Sun passing through your House of Work and forming a Grand Water Trine with both Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career and Neptune retrograde in your House of Earnings, you could get quite frustrated about this situation. Just be careful that with Pluto retrograde behind the scenes igniting that Grand Trine that you don’t let the floodgates open and end up expressing all your residual anger over this particular incident at an inopportune moment. In other words, try not to kill a fly with a howitzer over this.

 

Pisces- Try not to drive yourself crazy this week with attempting to guess what an employer needs just because you’re too shy or scared to ask them. Mars retrograde behind the scenes opposing Mercury in your House of Daily Routines are both being squared by Uranus in your House of Communications, which could indicate that hesitating to speak openly with this person about something you’re not sure about could draw a worse reaction from them because your silence might make them think that you’re trying to conceal something. Don’t risk looking dishonest to avoid being embarrassed; if it’s something they should know let them realize they can trust you by telling them. On the other hand, if your boss has been increasing your responsibilities and not compensating you for your extra work, realize that the price of your embarrassment to ask for a raise will pay back important dividends by letting you know whether or not you’re working for someone you can trust.

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

Next you turn “rump” into an acronym;

Racist Unqualified Mendacious Putz

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

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #40 Weekly Horoscopes for 6/18-6/24, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 6/18-6/24, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Glad to have you back here at Mr. Saturn’s Stars. I hope you enjoyed last weeks Tarot/Haiku Interlude as much as Mrs. Saturn and I enjoyed our vacation.

Now, are you ready to get back to some hardcore horoscopes!!! Yeah? Well then let’s go!!!

 

 Aries- Pride and appreciation could both be big themes for you this week, which could lead to some tense moments and even some disappointments. Nevertheless, try to understand that the overall lesson here should not revolve around anyone’s ego, but respect. The Sun entering Cancer should make you a little more sensitive than usual and its sextile to Uranus in your House of Self Worth should make you a little more reactionary, and if that weren’t enough, Venus will be opposing Mars with both of them being squared by a Scorpio Moon later in the week, all of which could be a recipe for either big passion or big frustration. By the weekend Mercury at the bottom of your chart will be opposing Pluto at the top, helping you to see the truth and let go of any feelings of anger, resentment, or even jealousy, in favor of healing and forgiveness spurred on by Jupiter retrograde in your House of Transformation working with kind and compassionate Neptune retrograde behind the scenes.

 

Taurus- Taurus is a fixed Earth Sign, grounded and stable, like an old, tall tree in the forest, but hopefully not like a stick in the mud when the rains of change start pouring down. There will be a fixed Grand Cross for you this week, beginning with rebellious Uranus in your sign opposing a Scorpio Moon in your House of Relationships, which will likely be all about getting your way in a situation no matter what. The second opposition that will complete the cross will be Venus in your House of Foundations and Mars in your House of Public Image, meaning pride won’t be just one of the seven deadly sins for you this week, but possibly all of them (perhaps with a little wrath mixed in). The light at the end of this tunnel vision will likely come over the weekend, when noble Jupiter retrograde trines compassionate Neptune retrograde and the investigative team of both Mercury and Pluto oppose each other to reveal this recent stubbornness on your part not to be the selfishness and ego you’ve been hiding behind, but rather a little bit of fear mixed with a lot of insecurity because, after all, change makes you very uncomfortable.

 

Gemini- This could be your Wizard of Oz week as a Fixed Grand Cross of Uranus, Mars, Venus, and the Moon combine with a new Cancer Sun in your House of Self Worth to re-enact the famous scene in the movie in which the curtain showing the massive, shouting face of the Wizard is pulled back by Toto to reveal a feeble old man hoping to fool the world into believing he’s something more than he is. What may turn out to be a surprise about all this (just as it was in the film) is that your true identity (just like that of the Wizard) with its modesty and insecurity is actually far more attractive (and inspiring) to those around you than the tougher image you feel a need to project. With Neptune transiting now through your House of Public Image it will be important for you to battle this tendency to hide your vulnerability behind a tough facade, for in actuality it is your natural sensitivity that is probably the most powerful tool you have in the face of your current circumstances.

 

Cancer- With the Sun entering your sign this week and aligning with Uranus in your House of Dreams and Saturn in your House of Relationships, this is a time when you will need to be appreciated and that must necessarily begin with you. Keeping that in mind, Venus in your house of Self Worth opposing Mars in your House of Transformation would speak to keeping your needs in perspective when others start making excessive demands on both your time and sanity. You pride yourself on being a caretaker so begin by taking care of yourself. Mercury in your sign opposing Pluto in your House of Relationships will add to your natural intuition as it offers insights into the motivations of both those who love you and those who oppose you. In the meantime, Jupiter in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune in your House of Philosophy will provide a decidedly Magickal aspect to your personality now, which may assist you in finding an esoteric solution to an obstacle that had previously seemed insurmountable. Believe in yourself and tap the heels of those magick slippers together, you didn’t end up with them by accident.

 

Leo- The activist and/or protector in you could be activated this week, as Mars in your House of Relationships opposes Venus in your sign and Uranus at the top of your chart opposes a Scorpio Moon at the bottom. Both injustice and bullies offend you and with the Sun moving behind the scenes into the super sensitive sign of Cancer, your heartstrings could be seriously tugged at now by either an individual or a group of people who are being victimized by unfortunate circumstances or unscrupulous individuals. Pluto in your House of Work opposing Mercury behind the scenes, along with Jupiter in your Home area aligning with Neptune in your House of Transformation, could contribute to you making discoveries either on the job or involving your family that will put a new spin on the actions of certain people whom you thought you knew, but it turns out you really didn’t. Once you know the facts, make sure to trust your own sense of truth to determine the right way to react.

 

Virgo- An unexpected problem this week could wind up being an unexpected blessing, it will all depend on your perspective as well as a sense of irony. Mars in your House of Work opposing Venus behind the scenes could find you thrust into a position of leadership on the job, an irony that will not be lost on you considering how much you have avoided playing the politics game at work because you think it’s a bunch of bullshit. The simple fact though is that you are the most qualified person to step in if the shit has hit the fan. Kind of like Burt Lancaster in From Here to Eternity; he’s the Sargent who really runs the base but when his girl suggests he take the officer’s exam he replies, “But I hate Officers!” All Mr. Saturn has to say is, “get over yourself, be a success!” Mercury in your House of Groups opposing Pluto in your House of Creativity could be of  assistance in your position of newfound responsibility in the form of you coming up with a better way to do whatever it is you’re now in charge of. Top it off with Jupiter and Neptune making everyone love you for it and you’ll see why it was suggested that a sense of irony would be important at this time.

 

Libra- As the Sun enters your House of Career and aligns with Uranus in your House of Transformation, the time may have finally come for you to get out there and make some noise. This ambitious theme will be reiterated as Mars in your House of Creativity opposes Venus in your House of Groups and Dreams. What you had thought was too personal and of little interest to most people might actually be quite universal. Mercury is also in your House of Career and it is opposing Pluto at the Foundation of your chart, meaning when we are honest with ourselves and what we feel, it will resonate with those of like mind and maybe there are more of them out there than you figured. Meanwhile, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Earnings aligning with Neptune Retrograde in your House of Work could bring back someone from the past that wants to return a favor for something you did but have forgotten about. The tumblers in the universal lock could very well be falling into alignment, so don’t be surprised if some doors start to open.

 

Scorpio- The story of Oedipus is famous for a reason; it is an archetypal theme of competition and incest that resonates deeply. With Uranus now in your House of Relationships and the Sun entering the sign of Cancer and your House of Philosophy, expect the deeper connections between your parents and you to start to emerge; not as dramatically as the Doors performing “The End,” but intense enough for sure. Mercury is also transiting through your House of Philosophy and as it opposes Pluto in your House of Communication, this could be a good time to start to explore some form of therapy to help you engage with the deeper parts of your nature, so consider perhaps going to a see a conventional therapist or even a legitimate Psychic, Tarot Reader, or Astrologer. Scorpio is the deepest and darkest of the signs, but within those depths are the secrets and realizations that can set you free. With Neptune now retrograde in your House of Creativity aligning with Jupiter retrograde in your sign, this could be the time to let your subconscious out to play; experiment with some automatic writing, meditation, or formal ritual practice, you may be glad you did.

 

Sagittarius- As the Sun enters into your House of Transformation and aligns with Uranus, you may finally be willing to push back at a person or situation that’s been bothering you. Venus in your House of Philosophy and Mars in your House of Communication will likely motivate you to speak up for yourself, so first make sure you take the time to examine how you really feel about the way you’re being treated, especially over the coming weekend as a Scorpio Moon behind the scenes may have you feeling some resentment toward either a relative or a co-worker who really has no respect for you. Mercury in your House of Transformation opposing Pluto in your House of Self Worth could very well act as a liberating force right now to help you see more clearly the connection between how you feel about yourself and how much you earn. It’s important to remember that the art of negotiation is about asking for more than you want in order to make the other person feel good about talking you down to what you really wanted.

 

Capricorn- As the Sun enters your House of Relationships and Uranus enters your House of both Creativity and Romance, get ready for a relationship or work situation to either suddenly blossom or disintegrate. The good news is that whatever happens will likely be initiated by you, as you’re suddenly hit by the realization that life is too short to fart around. Mars in your House of Self Worth and Venus in your House of Transformation would agree, especially by the time the weekend rolls around with a Scorpio Moon entering into your House of Dreams to square the God of War and the Goddess of Love. Mercury is also in your House of Relationships and he will make you want to express your feelings, for better or worse, especially since the Messenger Planet is opposing transformative Pluto in your sign, which is nothing short of a complete liberation from rules or attitudes that restrict who you want to be in any way, shape, or form.

 

Aquarius- If you’re sick of your job then the time may have come for you to finally look for something else. The Sun entering your House of Work and Uranus shaking up your Foundation are both aligning with Saturn behind the scenes, making it clear once and for all that the situation you are currently in is tantamount to death if you remain there. Mars in your sign will give you all the energy you need to search for a new situation, while Venus passing through your House of Relationships would speak to both new connections as well as being able to rely on those you’ve worked with in the past to spread the word that you’re now available. Mercury is also in your House of Work and as the Messenger Planet aligns with both Jupiter retrograde in your House of Career and Neptune retrograde in your House of Self Worth, look at things this way, if you’re still worried about whether or not you’re doing the right thing by leaving your job then consider this- all the planets I’ve just mentioned are in water signs, therefore, if it “feels right” to be leaving then get the hell out and don’t look back!

 

Pisces- This is not the time for you to be a wallflower or shy in any way, especially at work. Mars behind the scenes may have you feeling a little anxiety about being ambitious, yet Venus in your House of Work is trying to tell you that there is certainly opportunity present if you’re interested. The Sun entering your House of Creativity aligning with Uranus in your House of Communication may inspire you toward some bright ideas to improve things on the job. If that’s the case, then make sure you share these ideas with someone who can not only help you implement your plan, but also make sure you’re adequately compensated for the contribution. Mercury is also in your House of Creativity and the Messenger Planet is moving into a Grand Trine with both Jupiter and Neptune, both of whom are retrograde. In the past you have held yourself back in work situations by not feeling as though you were the leadership type, if that’s the case now then look to the Grand Trine that was just mentioned to help you learn to trust yourself and your intuition about what is right in a situation. The best leaders operate on instinct so start testing yours.

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

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

 

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

but the great redtail

Had nothing left but unable misery

From the bone too shattered for mending, the wing that

Trailed under his talons when

he moved…..

 

  …I gave him the lead gift in the twilight.

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

what

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

cried fear at its rising

Before it was quite unsheathed from reality.”

 

-Robinson Jeffers

 

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #38 Weekly Horoscopes for 5/28-6/3, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 5/28-6/3, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Mr. Saturn has a question for you…When was the last time you looked up into the sky, not just to check if it’s going rain, but to stare into an endlessness of azure until you lose your bearings and feel engulfed by eternity? Huh? This week if the weather is nice and the sky is clear, why don’t you take a moment and try to raise the ceiling of your thoughts by looking toward the heavens; perhaps an inspiration will respond?

Now for some Horoscopes!

 

Aries- If you’re expecting news from afar, this week’s Full Moon in Sagittarius will no doubt have you waiting with great optimism. I would like to say congratulations, but not so fast. Saturn in your House of Career will be inconjunct the Sun in your House of Communications, which will likely mean delays or some additional responsibilities on your part before an important project can go through. No doubt this will be annoying and you should get plenty of help with either your depression or righteous indignation from an inconjunct between the previously mentioned Full Moon and Uranus in your House of Self Worth. On the other hand, Mercury coming around to trine Mars in your House of Dreams should help you to deal with any unforeseen challenges and also help to remind you that what you’ve earned will not be denied, but there is a process to go through. As the Byrds once sang, “There is a time to every purpose under heaven.”

 

Taurus- This week’s Full Moon will occur in your House of Transformation and oppose the Sun in your House of Self Worth, which will likely give you a burst of optimism that you’ll most definitely need. I say this because the current Full Moon axis will have some unexpected shadows to it. The first will be Saturn in your House of Philosophy inconjunct the Sun, while the second will be Uranus inconjunct the Full Moon, likely giving whatever situations you may find yourself in a frustrating “one step forward, two steps back” feel. What will no doubt save the week for you will be a Grand Trine occurring between Neptune in your House of Groups, Venus in your House of Communication, and Jupiter retrograde in your House of Partnerships. This lucky alignment should enhance your interactions with both colleagues and loved ones so that patience, understanding, and cooperation will be the dominant themes and help you to keep any obstacles or difficulties in a proper perspective.

 

Gemini- Your ability to effectively interact with some recalcitrant individuals will be highlighted this week as the Full Moon lands in your House of Relationships. Saturn in your House of Transformation will be at odds with the Sun in your sign, likely bringing to the surface some deep seeded issues about surrendering control, while the previously mentioned Full Moon will be inconjunct Uranus behind the scenes. These two aspects together are probably referring to the defense mechanisms you still exercise that are no longer appropriate to who you currently are. You are no doubt going to be challenged, but try to recognize that if you come out swinging like you have in the past then you’ve only taken the bait. A Grand Trine between Venus in your House of Self Worth, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Work, and Neptune in your Public Image area would strongly suggest that you recognize your advantages in the situation and exercise some restraint. Like an old Taoist proverb states, “Strength will bide its time, while weakness feels a need to act.”

 

Cancer- The Full Moon axis this week is between your House of Work and your House of Confinement, meaning you should give careful thought to what you believe is holding you back as opposed to how you may be holding yourself back. The Sun behind the scenes in communicative Gemini is inconjunct Saturn retrograde in your House of Relationships, suggesting that you might be having a hard time differentiating between the constructive advice someone who truly cares for you is offering and the hurtful criticism you have received in the past from either insensitive family members or abusive partners. Uranus in your House of Groups is signaling that it’s time to let your freak flag fly and stop letting the vindictiveness of ignorant people get under your skin. Likewise, the Grand Trine between Venus in your sign, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Creativity, and Neptune in your House of Philosophy is all about luck if you could just stop worrying about the things you don’t have yet and remember instead how you’ve always managed to get whatever you have truly needed.

 

Leo- Any creative aspirations you might currently be having should be given some special attention this week as the Full Moon will be in that particular area of your chart. At the same time Saturn retrograde in your House of Work will be inconjunct the Sun in your House of Dreams, which could mean that making time for something that’s important to you may be difficult right now, however, with the previously mentioned Full Moon inconjunct Uranus realize that if there’s a will there’s a way, so decide what really matters and commit yourself to it. With a Grand Trine this week of Venus behind the scenes, Jupiter at Home, and Neptune in the House of Sex, the weekend could be the perfect time for you and someone special to either get out of Dodge or hunker down at their crib or yours for some romantic research. Make sure to take your time and play with feeling….”that’s the way, uh-huh, uh-huh, I like it, uh-huh, uh-huh….”

 

Virgo- There could be some serious discussion this week about what others expect of you as opposed to what you really want to do in a certain situation. The Full Moon inconjunct Uranus in your House of Philosophy could represent a real need for you to follow a different drummer, while the Sun inconjunct Saturn in your House of Creativity will represent the extra responsibility that will fall on your shoulders if you’re really serious about making your own kind of music. If you’re absolutely sure that you have to do you, then you also need to be clear with anyone else who’ll be affected by your decision. A Grand Trine later in the week between Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune should assure you not only the cooperation of someone whose opinion you’re concerned with, but good luck in your endeavors as well.

 

Libra- The Full Moon axis this week will be between your Houses of Communication and Philosophy with respective inconjuncts to both Uranus in your House of Transformation and Saturn in your House of Foundations, meaning that you could unexpectedly find that something you’ve been laboring on quietly in your own little corner of the world could have a much broader appeal than you might have suspected. A Grand Trine between Venus in your House of Career, Jupiter retrograde in your House of Earnings, and Neptune in your House of Work and Service could represent the lucky break you need and it could come about because of something you did in the past for someone who is now in a position of much greater influence.

 

Scorpio- At the same time that this week’s Full Moon in your House of Self Worth will be inconjunct Uranus in your House of Partnerships, Saturn will also be inconjunct to a flaky Gemini Sun in your House of Legacies, meaning that you need to make damn sure you’re not taken advantage of again by an employer who tries to substitute flattery for adequate compensation. In other words, talk softly in any new work situation but also be willing to wield that big old stinger y’all got if anyone messes with yo’ cheddar. A Grand Trine of Jupiter, Venus in your House of Philosophy, and Neptune in your House of Creativity would further suggest that a possible work opportunity could turn out to be quite lucrative as your organizational skills, work ethic, and leadership by example will impress a potential boss who’s quite willing to reward someone of your caliber if they show they can stand up for exactly what they’re worth.

 

Sagittarius- With the full Moon in your sign and a Gemini Sun in your House of Relationships, the time has come to be honest with yourself about what you expect of your friends as well as the past disappointments that have come about when those expectations have not been met. Saturn retrograde in your House of Self Worth will simply ask what you think you deserve, and based on that you’ll be able to figure out if your hopes have been too high or if the people you think of as friends are merely underachievers when it comes to respecting your feelings or valuing what you do for them. The Grand Trine occurring between Jupiter behind the scenes, Venus in your House of Transformation, and Neptune at the Foundation of your chart might generally be a good thing, but there is a danger here that your need to be liked will outweigh your desire to be respected so that you’ll likely end up with what someone else thinks you deserve regardless of what your expectations may be. How does the saying go, “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.”

 

Capricorn- Saturn retrograde in your sign in a wacky aspect to a hard to pin down Gemini Sun in your House of Work could find you either under-employed or hating your job. Meanwhile, the Full Moon behind the scenes in an equally wacky aspect to Uranus in your House of Creativity could have you deciding to either find something better or else test the boundaries of what you can get away with where you are. A Grand Trine occurring between Jupiter, Venus, and Neptune in your Houses of Hopes, Relationships, and Communication respectively could inspire you to take an emotional or creative risk, especially since Jupiter and Venus in harmonious aspect are all about luck. However, since Neptune can sometimes be about illusion, first make sure there’s water in the pool before you leap!

 

Aquarius- What are you willing to convince yourself of in order to pursue a dream? The Full Moon inconjuncting Uranus at the bottom of your chart could have you thinking unrealistically about what you believe are your superpowers, while the Sun in your House of Creativity inconjuncting Saturn behind the scenes could also have you doubting yourself. Welcome to the crystal clear, yet totally illogical world of Aquarius. Under normal circumstances the Grand Trine occurring this week could be a great thing, but since it will include Neptune in your House of Self Worth, Jupiter in your Public Image area, and Venus in your House of Work, there is a definite potential here for some really serious illusions about how you see yourself as opposed to how others view you. If you’re convinced you should take a gamble make sure to ponder an old gambler’s saying before you bet the farm, “Don’t play if you can’t afford to lose.”

 

Pisces- The symbol for your sign is that of two fishes swimming in opposite directions, which is quite apropos considering that this weeks Full Moon axis has the Moon in your House of Ambition inconjunct Uranus, while The Sun at the lowest point in your chart is inconjunct Saturn retrograde in your House of Dreams. If it’s possible to repeat a mistake you’ve made in the past you probably will. On the other hand, if it’s possible to convince yourself you’re not making the same mistake twice when you are, then you’ll probably do that instead. In other words, you haven’t thought this through at all so some obvious problems that have been staring you in the face will likely seem like a complete surprise. The saving grace here is that Neptune in your sign (which would ordinarily compound the possibility of illusion taking hold) is involved in a Grand Trine with both Jupiter and Venus, who together are almost always about luck. I don’t know how much you’ll gain here (or learn for that matter) other than simply managing to dodge a bullet that would have had anybody else’s name on it considering the circumstances.
