The reigning need of this day and Friday is emotional/homeland security, suggested by the Moon’s ingress into watery Cancer. That’s a big shift from the information-driven energy of the past few days when Moon was in intellectual Gemini. It doesn’t mean the day will be any less dynamic, however.
Note your dreams upon awakening, courtesy of Moon’s lovely connection with nebulous Neptune. There’s a nice flow to the morning on the East Coast, followed by a flash of insight, a disruption of the status quo, a declaration of independence or some other surprise — as rebel Uranus challenges that security-loving Moon at 2:17PM ET.
Keep on trucking for the next few hours, until ruthless Pluto challenges the Moon at 8:31PM ET, suggesting a power play (which could be in your favor), or a deep emotional catharsis (which could also work to your advantage). We’ll have more of Moon in Cancer on Friday, only without so much activity. It’ll be fun. You’ll love it!
Remember that Big Giant Earth Grand Trine that was exact in mid-March? The one involving the so-called money planets: Jupiter & Venus…trine resourceful Pluto…trine aggressive Mars? The one that led to that Big Giant MegaMillions jackpot? The one that was reflected in the markets as a big surge? We have an echo of that pattern happening now through the weekend, only not quite as dramatic or exact. We saw proactive Mars trine Sun on Monday; resourceful Pluto trines the Sun on Sunday — all three in Earth signs. The suggestion here — loosely — is the projection of material self-sufficiency, and isn’t it interesting that we’re in the middle of corporate earnings season and 80% — or some number close to that — of companies that have reported so far have beat Wall Street estimates. Of course if you’re materially self-sufficient, you don’t need help from anyone else. Which means you’re probably not hiring workers anytime soon — at least not this month.
Meanwhile, look at all the cold, hard facts that hit the fan on yesterday’s exact Pluto-Mercury square! And so much dirt about to be dug up — years after we thought the investigations were over, as in the case of Madeleine McCann, a young girl who presumably was abducted a few years ago http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Latest-News-Wires/2012/0425/Madeleine-McCann-Why-British-police-want-to-reopen-missing-child-case-video In other news, Newt Gingrich has a reality check and is about to end his campaign to become our next President http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/26/opinion/collins-the-end-of-newt.html?hp There’s more dirt on an intriguing power play going on in China http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/26/world/asia/bo-xilai-said-to-have-spied-on-top-china-officials.html?hp And here’s an investigation that uncovered actual verbal abuse (one of the downsides of Mercury-Pluto challenges is verbal abuse — amazing)! http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/sns-rt-us-usa-autism-dadbre83p01c-20120425,0,3544619.story
Finally, if you’d like to see the video of Senator Rob Portman doing his chicken impression (cited in the Gingrich article above), it happened in January on CNBC’s Squawk Box http://video.cnbc.com/gallery/?video=3000067052 Chicken impressions on a TV network devoted to corporations and stock markets? Absolutely. Spectacular showmanship and entertainment are strongly suggested in CNBC’s horoscope — yes, of course I had to look it up.
