Super early risers on the East Coast may be all fired up in the morning, courtesy of an intense hook-up between aggressive Mars and Moon in perfectionist Virgo. Could we be more perfectly organized if we tried? Yes, and there will likely be plenty of critics (including the one inside your head) who could show just how precisely resourceful they can be. Other planetary patterns today suggest considerable creative potential and an intriguing obsession with establishing new connections — which could be quite positive. You can network yourself silly or hang with a group, especially if an idealistic viewpoint is part of the mix. For some, this may be a day of reckoning, as a driving ambition faces a test. Are you on the right track? Interesting to observe these planetary patterns on a day when demonstrations have been planned nationwide by the folks that brought you Occupy Wall Street http://rendezvous.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/04/30/occupy-wall-street-brings-may-day-to-america/
Just a reminder to get it off your desk today if you can; the Moon will be void of course from 6:58AM ET to 10:04PM ET on Wednesday. Moon voids suggest that moving in a direct, focused straight line could be challenged by unexpected twists, flakes and crises that turn out to be much ado about naught.
Meanwhile, a couple of news items caught my eye over the weekend. Jupiter, sometimes the planet of wretched excess, has been running wild in Taurus, which seeks to preserve material security and keep things “the way they should be”. One of the most popular stories on the New York Times home page is about a 102 year-old woman who has lived her entire life in New York — on the same street! http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/29/nyregion/east-84th-street-as-it-was-and-as-it-is.html?_r=1&src=me&ref=nyregion
Add to Jupiter’s tendency toward excess a few other planetary patterns noted in recent posts, and we end up with a front-page headline about how Apple has managed to avoid billions in taxes, apparently paying just under 10% last year — amazing http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/29/business/apples-tax-strategy-aims-at-low-tax-states-and-nations.html?pagewanted=all
