Weekly Horoscope ~ April 20 to 30

Weekly Horoscope

Taurus Decan 1~ April 20 to 30 2017. The new weekly horoscope runs as an Egyptian week, ie 10 days. It will start as the Sun moves into a new decan and looks at what fixed stars it hits during the decanate week. The star interpretations are written for those born with their Sun on that degree, but the general mood of the day will carry that flavour too. The Sun in Taurus decan 1 makes gifted orators who fight their battles with words. At this time, supreme propaganda is brought to the fore, and the pen really is mightier than the sword. Taurus decan 1 likes dictating so they can make great teachers, but they can also be dictators in the political arena too. At this time then, as this is a bestial sign, directing styles might lack grace or tact, but expression is frank and to the point.

Taurus 0º 24’ ~ Mirach in the girdle of Andromeda. 2.4*

Sun on Mirach “Trouble through opposite sex, disappointments in expectations but otherwise favorable.” [1] Mirach is found in the girdle of Andromeda. It is an extremely fortunate star “portending renown and good luck in matrimony.” [1] Andromeda had pay for her mother Cassiopeia’s boastful tongue by being chained to a rock as a sacrifice. This was to appease Neptune offence at Cassiopeia’s claim her daughter was more beautiful than any of Neptune’s sea nymphs. It all ends well as Andromeda is rescued by brave Perseus whom she marries. This is probably why there is fortune here, due to Andromeda’s lucky escape and the fact she bags a courageous, alpha-male husband. Robson echoes the myth saying Mirach “gives personal beauty, a brilliant mind, a love of home, great devotion, beneficence, forgiveness, love, overcoming by kindness, renown, and good fortune in marriage.” The Ebertins emphasise a creative side saying Mirach endows “Many interests, tendency to inspiration and medium-ship as a base for artistic creations, altruism, cheerfulness, happiness, love of company. These people have a stimulating effect on others, they make friends easily and are helped on in life by others.” [2]

Taurus 1º 31?~ Mira in the neck of Cetus the Sea Monster. 3.0

Mirais a gorgeous deep garnet star in the neck of the not so pretty sea monster. Mira however comes from the Latin Mirus which mean wonderful and someone to be admired. As lovely as that all sounds, the interpretations for Mira are mixed depending to which planet it is configured; “Its nature corresponds to Saturn and Jupiter. Connected well and with a well-placed Saturn and linked up well otherwise, this will mean prudence, perseverance, versatility, a progressive spirit and endurance in solving difficult problems. This star in unhelpful connections, will bring as results failures, fiascoes, enmity..”.[2]

Taurus 2º 38’ ~ Angetenar in the Eridanus on the bend of the river. 4.8
Taurus 2º 42? ~ Tyl in Draco the Dragon. 4.0

Angetenar in the bend in the river near Fornax. The constellation of Eridanus as a whole “gives a love of knowledge and science, much travel and many changes, a position of authority” . Very close by we also have Tyl in Draco the dragon, interestingly the Chinese gave it the name ‘Kin Yy’ which means goldfish. Draco is a constellation very far up in the poles and its influence in this decan is faint, but I thought it was worth mentioning since we have another “gold fish” further on in the decan in the actual constellation Dorado.

  1. This is my absolute TOP favourite format of all your horoscopes, Marina! I’m crazy about Fixed Stars.
    On the composite chart with my SO, Jupiter is conjunct Juno on Spica.
    Jupiter is at 22Libra50
    Spica is at 23Libra05
    Juno is at 23:28
    MC is at 28Libra47, so this configuration hits you right in the eye the minute you look at the chart. Incidentally, the chart is a “cradle” pattern which includes all the main planets, but not all of them touch the angles of the cradle.
    That Jupiter-Spica-Juno sounds so good, right? The King and Queen of the Roman pantheon together with Spica?
    Except that Jupiter didn’t exactly treat Juno with the respect she deserved. In fact, he can be regarded as the usurper of her power … and while Juno is often seen as the marriage asteroid, I have also seen interpretations that point out Jupiter’s serial unfaithfulness to her.
    Hmmmmm …
    Those negative factors actually affected our relationship when we were young and stupid. As we have matured, I have gained his respect now and he (says he) is no longer unfaithful.

    I totally adore your site and how you write on it, Marina! Your insights are rare and special.

    • Hi Irmi, Yes Jupiter is the male’s natural drive to conquer and sew as much seed as possible, which they have to learn to harness. Just as females have to learn to get to grips with over-nurturing and judging things more rationally rather than emotionally. I’m glad you managed to keep your marriage together despite all. I think Jupiter/Juno just show the challenges a marriage will go through if you marry an Alpha male!

  2. Hi Marina, thank you so much for replying!
    You have given me extra insight with your comment about over-nurturing – this man’s Ascendant is in Pisces, so he is adept at needing nurturing. And I have Venus in Cancer … fortunately conjunct Moon in Gemini (orb 1:43). BUT – his Asc degree is in quincunx to his Saturn, Pluto and my Sun and Part of Fortune …
    Every single thing you say about Spica applies to us in one way or another, even the physical unfruitfulness set against the craving for higher learning.
    We didn’t keep our marriage together. We divorced long ago and recently rediscovered each other. It was all very exciting to get together again, but it’s not at all certain that we’ll make it this time. He is an ultra-Alpha male and I have become quite independent during our time apart. We have a bit of a “Twin Flame or Hell Fire” thing, but communicate beautifully if we stay calm and focused.
    The Sun is on Spica TODAY – and there’s this lunar eclipse going on …
