Mr. Saturn’s Stars #61 Weekly Horoscopes for 11/19-11/25, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 11/19-11/25, 2018

 

 Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. The Thanksgiving Holiday will be happening this week, so as you’re stuffing your pie hole  make sure you take a moment to reflect on all you have to be thankful for (and even the stuff you didn’t care for if it ended up making you better in some way…..after all, that’s the way the evolutionary cookie crumbles).

 

 Aries- With this week’s Full Moon in your House of Communications opposing Jupiter in your House of Philosophy and squaring Mars behind the scenes, be careful that you don’t inadvertently hurt yourself (or someone else) with a “Freudian Slip.” Your emotions are very close to the surface now and if you’ve been experiencing frustrations or delays in the work sphere your editing faculties will likely be a little bit off. They say “loose lips sink ships,” well, just make sure you don’t deep six a lot of what you’ve worked for by saying the wrong thing at the wrong time. If you have something to vent do it at the gym instead of running your mouth.

 

Taurus- There are 4 major planets this week in your House of Transformation, a Full Moon in your House of Self Worth, and a bunch of decisions that need to be made. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Philosophy are promoting a slash and burn approach to anything that contributes to your comfort zone and prevents you from moving ahead, while Uranus retrograde behind the scenes has you itching to press forward regardless of the circumstances; in other words, you could exhaust yourself by trying to let go and hold on at the same time. Mercury retrograde starting off the week squaring Neptune could have you losing sight of the forest for the trees, so ask someone you trust for help. Just be willing to follow their advice if you know it’s true. Any hesitancy you’re feeling about change is merely the seductiveness of your comfort zone trying to anesthetize you; Don’t fall asleep at the wheel.

 

Gemini- This week’s Full Moon is in your sign and as it opposes Jupiter in your House of Partnerships and squares Mars in your House of Career, be prepared to take one step back to move two steps forward. Your ability to strategize and compromise will catch your enemies off guard and re-establish confidence in you from those who have been supportive but doubtful as of late. The question is can you transcend that ego of yours that needs to be in control? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Transformation are going to force you to let some things go, just realize that this will allow you travel lighter and farther than you ordinarily would if you were totally in control, especially if that control was just going to precipitate your demise by stretching you too thin and making you seem unqualified and ill prepared….A word to the wise, less is more.

 

Cancer- An epiphany could be coming to you this week as the Full Moon shines into your House of Secrets. Jupiter in your House of Work squaring Mars in your House of Philosophy, which then aligns nicely with Saturn in your House of Partnerships, could see you joining forces on the job with someone you ordinarily wouldn’t want to be associated with. The caveat here is that the advantage in this situation is all yours because you’re the only one this individual thinks they can trust. Politics no doubt makes for strange bedfellows, but if you can both benefit from this association give it a chance; particularly if you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Mercury retrograde squaring Neptune in your House of Philosophy could have you doubting all of the above, however Mr. Saturn thinks the illusion usually associated with this pair of planets will be about ultimately trusting your intuition rather than getting stuck in the illusions of conventional logic…..What do you think?

 

Leo- You’ve been procrastinating about an idea long enough. As the Moon goes Full in your House of Dreams and opposes Jupiter in your House of Creativity, the time has come to go out and make that first step. Mars in your House of Transformation aligning with Saturn in your House of Maintenance will be there to back you up once this project gets in gear, so don’t let yourself get overly bogged down in details at the onset, after all, needing to have everything figured out ahead of time has always been your excuse in the past not to start. (Touché.) With Uranus retrograde at your Mid-heaven, expect the unexpected, and with Venus finally going direct the unexpected might just end up being that the idea you’re about to take a risk on is a lot better than you realized. That’s not to say there aren’t a few glitches, but with Mercury currently retrograde it’ll all get figured out eventually. The question is, do you believe?

 

Virgo- Marlon Brando in “The Godfather” said, “keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” As the Full Moon ascends into your House of Career and enters into a testy alignment with Jupiter at your Foundation and Mars in your House of Partners, it should become quite apparent now who has your best interests in mind and who doesn’t. Make a note of who’s who, but don’t let on to anyone what you know. There may be some surprises, particularly if you realize a partner has been passive aggressively undermining you, however, with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity you should have no problem seeing what needs to be capitalized on and what needs to be let go of. If you’re feeling some regrets about what needs to be done, just remember what happened to Don Corleone in the end….Que sera sera.

 

Libra- Now that Venus is direct in your sign and moving into an opposition with Uranus retrograde in your House of Partnerships, expect some feelers you sent out in the past to unexpectedly track you down. This should be further accentuated as Jupiter combines with the Sun in your House of Communications and aligns with the Full Moon in your House of Publishing and the dissemination of ideas. Mercury retrograde is also in your House of Communication and as it enters into a harsh angle with Neptune in your House of Work, don’t underestimate how much those who are seeking you out need you; be humble and all that, but don’t be a doormat.

 

Scorpio- The Full Moon in your House of Transformation opposes Jupiter in your House of Self Worth and as they both square Mars in your House of Creativity you are likely feeling it’s finally time to take decisive action in regards to controlling your own life. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Ideas have seen you going back and forth between considering the merits of being a worker or a boss, but the one thing you consistently shy away from thinking about is being your own Master (or Mistress). Venus behind the scenes opposing Uranus retrograde is probably finding you yet again in a position to have to bail out some incompetent superior. While this individual may have had the money to start this business, you’re the one who’s actually running it. A suggestion for the future; find an investor not a boss.

 

Sagittarius- As the Full Moon illuminates your House of Relationships and squares Mars in your House of Home, the time has likely come for you to get out of the nest and begin your own life. Jupiter in your sign knows you’re ready, but Neptune also in your House of Home has you hedging on whether or not you’re willing and able. Really? Having your own life is not just about money (which you have) but also about maintenance, which you lazily and co-dependently always palm off on someone else. Just don’t underestimate the control that you’re giving away by being too lazy to take care of your own shit. Saturn in your House of Self Worth is also impacting Mars in your home area, so if you’re willing to take responsibility then you can have true freedom in return, after all, that’s the most important bill you’ll ever have to pay.

 

Capricorn- Having Saturn and Pluto in your sign for a while has likely put everything you’ve been used to into disarray. As the Full Moon in your House of Work squares Mars in your House of Communication, now would probably be a good time for you to establish some new routines that will draw on all the change you’ve been through. Venus going direct in your House of Career should see you finally getting some rewards for any hard work you might have done in the past, although Mercury retrograde behind the scenes might still have you worrying about stuff that you shouldn’t and waiting for the shoe to drop. The antidote for this funk is to let the Sun and Jupiter lead you in a jailbreak from your House of Confinement….as the man once said, “Follow your bliss.”

 

Aquarius- Too many choices can lead to confusion and that might be exactly where you are now as you contemplate a myriad of possibilities that exist in a new situation. Mars in your House of Self Worth has you feeling quite ambitious, although where the Warrior Planet is now in Pisces is more about strategy and timing rather than overwhelming something with energy and brute force. Venus passing through your House of Philosophy to oppose Uranus in your House of Communication is about killing them with kindness, so be willing to be patient and negotiate and you could go far in a what might currently appear to be a chaotic situation. Saturn and Pluto behind the scenes will keep you going two steps forward and one step back for the next little while, so try to be patient and go with the flow, your future may depend on it.

 

Pisces- Mars and Neptune in your sign is not necessarily the best combination, as their qualities of action and illusion can tend to make it feel as though you’re trying to drive a car through a heavy fog. Likewise, the Full Moon at the bottom of your chart and Jupiter at the top is like the foam overflowing out of a beer mug, so make sure you start out sipping slowly in a new situation or you could end up with a wet face and very little beer. Mercury retrograde in your House of Career squaring Neptune could have you believing that everything that glitters is gold, however, be careful that your check book is balanced and you’re not assuming you can draw on resources that aren’t really there. It’s true that “when you ain’t got nothing, you got nothing to lose,” but face it, debt can accumulate as easily as dust, so try not to neglect what needs to be taken care of right now.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #57 Weekly Horoscopes for 10/15-10/21, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/15-10/21, 2018

 

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

“Doubt requires more courage than conviction does, and more energy; because conviction is a resting place and doubt is infinite……”

-John Patrick Shanley, “Doubt”

 

Aries- You might need to let off some steam this week as Mercury and Venus embrace in your House of Transformation and Intimacy, just pay attention to who your audience is during any confessions or cuddles because in the wrong company loose lips won’t just sink ships, they may end up swallowing a career or friendship as well. As Mars moves into a square with blunt Mercury in Scorpio, be aware that your actions will have consequences, which could include anything from being chastised to getting punched in the nose….so be careful. The Lunar Arc for the week will be moving from your Public Area to behind the scenes, so be discreet and you may just be able to slip in that back door leading to profit and satisfaction…..enjoy!

 

Taurus- If you are currently in a serious professional or intimate relationship it is important that you be willing to speak the truth to your partner at this time. Try to be ahead of the curve if you see the writing on the wall, as Uranus is retrograde in your sign and you don’t want to be surprised by something you could very well have headed off at the pass. Mars transiting through your House of Career will have you in front of the Public so make sure your proverbial fly is zipped, especially as the planet of action moves into a square with Mercury in Scorpio and the haters will be working overtime at the gossip mills. The Lunar Arc will be passing from your Mid-heaven through your House of Public Image and into your House of Groups, so take your Mother’s advice and make sure you’ve got clean undies on just in case you get in an accident and the doctors need to undress you.

 

Gemini- It will be tempting to go off on some dishonest sleaze bag at work, but don’t, even if you’re justified because there could be some unexpected consequences as Mars splits the difference between Neptune and Pluto in your Houses of Public Image and Transformation respectively. Others may not hear the point you’re trying to make about fraud and incompetence, instead they may be put off by your anger and think you’re just being a hard ass. If you can be patient until Mercury gets closer to Pluto later in the week you won’t have to say anything, simply because those two planets are about secrets being revealed and the fool burning your cork has a closet full they’d like to keep under wraps. Smile, you’re on candid camera….

 

Cancer- Mercury in your House of Creativity will be moving into an alignment with both Neptune in your House of Philosophy and Pluto in your House of Relationships, which could mean you’ll find yourself in a position to be an aesthetic guru of sorts for an upcoming event. Your sense of taste along with your naturally romantic nature will be activated by these transits, so don’t hesitate to throw your two cents in the bucket of ideas relating to how the festivities should proceed. Just make sure you’re sense of charm also shows up, simply because you might inadvertently end up showing someone up without intending to, especially with Mars going through your House of Transformation and making you as forceful and energetic as your ideas are inspired.

 

Leo- While at times you can be as sensitive as a pussycat, there are also moments when you can seem as awkward and out of place as having a lion in the living room.  With Mercury and Venus conjunct in Scorpio try to watch your mouth, especially with family, you’re tendency to be blunt now will not earn you any sugar, particularly if you insist on telling people stuff they simply don’t want to hear. Later in the week when Mercury moves into alignment with Pluto you will have your “I told you so moment,” just make sure you don’t actually say that but instead be ready with a solution that will make you seem like you’re psychic (but really you’re just prepared). Everyone will think you’re a genius and you might even end up being proud of yourself as well for not belaboring something that was ultimately inevitable (which you didn’t know then, but you know now).

 

Virgo- What you say now will likely not be nearly as effective as what you do, so plan your actions wisely. If something either at work or in the professional sphere is annoying you, act for the time being like it’s okay, then, when no is watching, start your investigation. Mercury hooking up with Venus will allow you to keep on the down low and appear to go with the flow, although when Mercury moves on to square Mars and align with Pluto you should have all the dirt you need to bust your move and strike like a ninja. Neptune in your House of Relationships will be in on this Mercury driven stuff as well, so make sure that you’re clear about who’s on your side and who isn’t, that way only the baddies will go down and there won’t be any collateral damage. Oh, one final word, you should be executing this mission because it’s the right thing to do, not because you want to get ahead….just sayin’.

 

Libra- There is a sense of mystery surrounding you now that could be used to your advantage, just make sure that you don’t get lost in what others ignorantly project on you. Your insights now are quite sharp and you are able to see through the illusions that most people think is reality. You have true talent, but with such abilities also comes great responsibility, keep that in mind and don’t try to pretend you’re something you’re not; what you are is more than enough. Your words carry a lot of weight now so choose them carefully and commit yourself to only promising what you can actually back up. Once again, what you’re bringing to the table is valuable and because it is you can keep things simple and still shine. Mars in your House of Creativity will be like having a reserve tank of gas, so don’t worry if you’re not the first one out of the gate, you will undoubtedly be a strong finisher.

 

Scorpio- With 3 Major planets now in your sign (Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter) and Mars at your Foundation squaring all of them, your world is rocking and rolling like a stormy sea, however, rather than worrying about getting drowned underneath all this momentum why don’t you instead consider surfing this tidal wave to tube city? Uranus retrograde in your House of Relationships has likely brought back some sort of craziness from your past, but with solid Saturn in Capricorn providing ballast and Pluto (your esoteric ruler) helping to transform your thinking, consider any past drama that is coming up now for revue as a rerun you’ve already seen so you know what’s going to happen. Just keep in mind you’re no longer the person you were back then, but an evolved and self- loving person who has worked hard to get there. Repeat after me, “My name is Gladiator……”

 

Sagittarius- You could possibly be somewhat of a Freudian cocktail now, as Mercury and Venus retrograde in your House of Hidden Things square Mars in your House of Communication. With the addition of restrictive Saturn in your House of Self Worth, try to be aware of any mounting frustrations so you can head them off at the pass, otherwise you may find yourself acting out at the expense of someone you would never think of hurting or, perhaps worse, someone you can’t afford to offend. As Mercury moves further into Scorpio and comes into alignment with Pluto, you will no doubt gain some insight into your recent behavior; let’s just hope you haven’t already forced someone to pass a harsh judgment because of your alter ego.

 

Capricorn- If you feel you’re ready to speak your truth then undoubtedly you’ll find an audience to appreciate it, right? Not necessarily…. At this time such a simple assumption may turn out to be trickier than you think, especially since Mercury and Venus in your House of Groups will be providing you with an edgy, and perhaps hard to understand charisma. This will be because they will both be squaring Mars in your House of Self Worth, which could end up sending some mixed messages as you find that people seem to be intimidated rather than drawn to you. Later in the week when Mercury aligns with Pluto in your sign and Neptune in your House of Communication, you’ll likely figure out what’s going on and make the necessary adjustments; such as less is more, and approachable, not necessarily approaching, is what folks like.

 

Aquarius- Two steps forward and one step back is what life probably feels like to you right now, especially with Saturn in your House of Confinement and Mars in your sign making it seem like you’re driving a car with the brake on. In addition, Uranus at the bottom of your chart is rocking the boat while Mercury squaring Mars is making you feel sea sick, ugh!!! But hang in there, as Mercury moves forward and comes into alignment with both Pluto and Neptune, you should be able to find something to calm you down and help you focus; “Om” or “Cheers”, whichever sounds like music to your ears. At that point, the Lunar Arc for the week will be finishing up in your House of Self Worth and you should be feeling mellow as jello and going with the flow.

 

Pisces- Insights should be coming to you this week like a straight no chaser shot of reality, beginning with the Moon in somber Capricorn embracing Saturn, which will be followed shortly thereafter by blunt Mercury in your House of Philosophy reading the riot act to volatile Mars as he tries to bums rush his way through any obstacles. It won’t be until later in the week when Mercury moves forward to align with Pluto and Neptune in your sign that the gift of insight will dawn on you and you realize the truth behind the old cornball cliché, “things happen for a reason”…….yup, the reason was because you didn’t know any better, but now you do. Namaste.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #55 Weekly Horoscopes for 10/1-10/7, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/1-10/7, 2018

 

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

What a shit show this past week has been, huh? I would refer you back to my Aquarius comments from last week as well as to my Aquarius comments for this week…Maybe Bart O’Kavanaugh should be reading Mr. Saturn’s Stars? At any rate, there’s finally going to be an FBI investigation into the allegations of sexual misconduct against the SCOTUS nominee, let’s just hope all 3 complaints are fully vetted and it’s not just a cherry pick chosen by the Republican majority. Oh, and a warning to the FBI Agents that may have to talk to Kavanaugh, he’s a screamer…. and make sure you bring some tissues.

 

Aries- This may be a time when you’re willing to step out from behind the mask you usually wear in public and reveal who you truly are. Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Transformation and squaring Mars in your House of Groups will likely have you chaffing against any status quo expectations being presented to you, while Mercury in your House of Relationships squaring Pluto in your house of Public Image will inspire you to speak the truth and/or find out the real deal in whatever situations you may find yourself involved in. You are by nature an individualistic sign, so if you’ve caught yourself as of late compromising more than you should, now is the time when you may just decide to throw caution to the wind and demand, as The Pointer Sister’s sang,  “It’s Got to be Real.”

 

Taurus- Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Relationships will have you re-examining your connections to various people in your life, especially with Mars in your House of Public Image squaring the Goddess of Love and putting pressure on you to be “A Man (or Woman) for All Seasons.” Pluto in your House of Philosophy squaring Mercury should see some important info coming to light about some things that may have been said about you behind the scenes that will end up being quite hurtful. It’s important to realize that the individuals who made these statements are clearly not your friends. With Jupiter also passing through your House of Relationships you’ll likely take the high road regarding this matter, which is fine, just make sure you remember the old saying, “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me.”

 

Gemini- There may be pressures on you now to deliver at work and it’s important that you find the proper motivation in order to adequately rise to the challenge. Mars in your House of Philosophy may find you feeling a need to rebel against what you consider to be unfair demands by a superior, although with Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Relationships and aligning with Saturn in your House of Legacies, it may just be that you’ll have to suck it up and do what’s gotta be done. Pluto is also in your House of Legacies and as it aligns with Jupiter in your House of Work those two planets together are about wealth, which could mean what you suffer through today you will benefit from tomorrow. “Go the distance.”

 

Cancer- We never know what we’re capable of until we’re challenged and this may just be one of those weeks for you. Pluto in your House of Relationships is being squared by Mercury in your House of Foundations, which means that facts may come to light now involving someone you were convinced was one way (perhaps a family member) but is actually another…..surprise!!! What’s important is not that they’re a shit, but that Venus going retrograde in your House of Creativity and squaring Mars in your House of Transformation will see you leaping like a ninja out ahead of the curve and doing all the damage control necessary to reduce your losses (and disappointment) to a minimum. Jupiter is also in your House of Creativity, and as he aligns with Pluto you may find that when the dust clears even if you’ve lost respect for one person in your life, you may have gained an unexpected new ally in the process.

 

Leo- You are the sign of leadership, however, sometimes followers can own a leader if the person in charge needs the ego gratification that supplication can provide. Mars in your House of Relationships now represents the demands that your various relationships are putting on you, while Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Foundations is you remembering what you need and how you’re not getting it. What to do? Mercury in your House of Communication squaring Pluto would suggest you start setting some boundaries, although the needy folks around you might not appreciate it, but after all, they’re the problem, aren’t they? Uranus in your House of Public Image aligning with Saturn is all about you doing you, so for the time being if doing you means going solo, then so be it!  “I am Legend.”

 

Virgo- Pressures on the job could actually become a motivation for you to rethink how you gave up a dream not too long ago because you were discouraged. Venus in your House of Communication squaring Mars in your House of Work will undoubtedly help you to realize how much energy you’re being forced to spend now doing something you don’t like, while Mercury in your House of Self Worth squaring Pluto in your House of Creativity will have you feeling all the subconscious creativity you’re holding back, simply because it’s making you ill. Saturn is also in your House of Creativity, and as it aligns with Uranus in your House of Philosophy, this is the time for you to bust out and resume chasing down that original dream…”Ba ba ba, ba bop bop, I feel free”

 

Libra- Mercury in your sign is making you want to share with the world the insights you have struggled to acquire, however, Pluto in your House of Foundations is asking you to be patient because you really have no idea yet how much these ideas are going to affect the world’s view of you as well. Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Self Worth is squaring Mars in your House of Creativity, meaning that something right now which seems obvious to you may actually be quite a revolutionary (and mysterious) viewpoint for someone else. Let Jupiter in your House of Earnings aligning with Pluto give you the confidence to be patient that your time is coming. In the meantime, pay close attention as structured and organized Saturn aligns with Uranus retrograde in your House of Transformation to pave the way for the new life you will soon embark upon.

 

Scorpio- As Mercury behind the scenes squares Pluto in your House of Thinking and Communication, be prepared for a perspective you have on a certain situation to change quite suddenly. In addition, be prepared for the situation itself to change as well, especially since Venus is going retrograde in your sign and moving back into a square with Mars in your House of Home and Foundations. Which came first, the writing on the wall, or you thinking how you could use a change? It doesn’t really matter because you should feel confident that your spidey-sense was right on the money and everything seems to be going in your favor regardless. Saturn in your House of siblings aligning with Uranus retrograde in your House of Relationships could find you revisiting a weird misunderstanding from the past with a family member. Don’t expect a different resolution this time around because even if you have changed, they haven’t.

 

Sagittarius- As Venus begins her backward motion in your House of Hidden Things, expect memories of either unrequited love or the one that got away to haunt you now. Mars will be squaring Venus from your House of Communication, so if you feel a strong urge to look up someone from your past, don’t. You’re no longer the same person you were and going down memory lane could end up with you regressing in a very unhealthy way. Pluto in your House of Self Worth squaring Mercury in your House of Dreams represents the need for you to face the truth and acknowledge the hard lesson about love you received from this person, thereby determining whether or not you learned anything. Of course there’s a very good possibility you’ve been hiding in a world of illusion since then, and if that’s the case then this is the time to realize it, once and for all.

 

Capricorn- With Saturn and Pluto in your sign, the revolution is no doubt raging, both within you and in the surrounding world. Pluto is squaring Mercury in your House of Public Image, so if you find that you’re still a little lax about setting up boundaries, then perhaps someone may come crashing through this week to remind you of the work yet to be done. On the other hand, Saturn aligning nicely with Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity will help you to be like Felix the Cat with his magick bag of tricks so that you can get right to fixing any damage that may occur. Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Dreams may mean it’s time to curb either your expenses or leisure time, especially if you have found that you are currently distracted from what you’ve hoped to accomplish. If you can be honest with yourself, then Jupiter aligning with Pluto should give you the confidence to get right back on track.

 

Aquarius- Mars in your sign squaring Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Career may require you to revisit something that might have gotten lost in your recent surge forward toward new foes and new battles. Pluto behind the scenes has been digging around and Mercury in your House of Philosophy has been showing you some really crazy secrets that could send the whole shithouse up in smoke if you were that type; well, are you? Noble Jupiter is also in your House of Career and as he aligns with Pluto back there in the shadows hopefully he will advise you to be prudent (and hopefully you’ll listen). A time of reckoning is coming for the bad guys, so just call the sheriff and don’t try to make a citizen’s arrest. Saturn behind the scenes aligning with Uranus at your Foundation would suggest you just do your part and try to remain humble; as the saying goes, “good things come to those that wait.” Surprise!!!

 

Pisces- If you haven’t been satisfied as of late, and I don’t mean with the material quality of your life but rather with the content of your character, then Mars in your Subconscious area squaring Venus going station/retrograde in your House of Philosophy might make this a good time to do some serious inner work with a qualified professional. Mercury in your House of Transformation squaring Pluto would reinforce this point as those two together are about finding what’s hidden. Neptune is your sign’s ruler and having it at home now could end up being either a gift or a curse, just like a parent can alternately be a source of frustration as well as love. Either way you need to find out who you truly are, and if that’s your motivation at this point in time, then having your ruling planet in your sign will probably be a source of enlightenment rather than illusion. Namaste.

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Let’s all drink to the death of a clown

La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la”

-The Kinks

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #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.
