Hooray, hooray, hooray! The Moon gets into gear in the freedom-loving, humanitarian sign of Aquarius at 4:41AM ET, aiding all efforts to be socially significant, unique or just plain weird. Planetary patterns are quiet during business hours, suggesting no jolts or power plays to throw you off track. At 8:02PM ET there’s a communicative hook-up between Moon and rebel Uranus, which fosters innovative exchanges and maybe a tech story or two. At 9:48PM ET we’ve got a potential wet blanket or reach for ambition suggested by stern Saturn in Scorpio squaring the independent Moon. That’s it. Still pretty quiet, compared to the rambunctious activity of the past few weeks.
In fact, the only exact aspect between any two planets (not including the Moon) between now and April 16th happens just after midnight ET on Sunday, April 7th. And gosh, I hope you have a date between now and Sunday…or can spend some time in a place where passion might ignite. The aspect in question is a hook-up between receptive Venus and proactive Mars in the sign of impulsive, fearless, inspiring and passionate Aries. Those born around the 10th of April, July, October and January will likely feel this burst of energy more than most, as will those with a planet or angle at 20 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn. Could be sizzling; could be more sparks that you can handle (so don’t fly off one) — let me know how it goes.
And now, the news. I can’t believe I missed this absolute gem when it hit the wires on March 29th, three days after ruthless Pluto squared Mars and two days before it squared the Sun. Pluto suggests “news from underground,” as in “Gate to Hell Found in Turkey”. Here’s another, posted just minutes ago: an anonymous leak exposes the identities of thousands who are hiding wealth offshore. Here’s a more thorough piece on the latter story. Maybe the Gate to Hell is really in the British Virgin Islands.
Capturing the breaking-down-barriers energy of so many planets in pioneering Aries, combined with the revolutionary Uranus-Pluto square is this stunner, from Macon, Georgia: “High School Students Organize First Integrated Prom”. Yeah, I’m speechless, too. Macon seems light-years away from New York…
