How April’s Cardinal Grand Cross Is Actually A Good Thing

So I pulled a card this morning from one of my Doreen Virtue decks (as I’m in the habit of doing lately) and I didn’t read what it said right away.
Didn’t have my glasses on.
Put it on my desk and decided what to blog about.
And I thought about my own life, changes in my own life.

Notable for April 2nd and 3rd:

Sun conjunct Uranus
Sun square Pluto
(Sun still in orb of squaring Jupiter)

Mercury inconjunct Mars
Mercury trine Saturn

And I started thinking about power (Pluto).
Thinking about how we can’t always predict (Uranus = unpredictable) when/how/why a person will take back power that has gone missing.

And I started thinking about (once again) how the Sun in Aries is about YOU.
Your vitality.
Where you are vitally alive now.
Where you are SEARCHING now.
Where you are living from now, life-force.
You cannot avert your eyes.
That house in your chart is ALIVE.

Now of course we are dealing with a “cross,” we are dealing with four corners, the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), but the faster moving planets are in Aries:
the Sun (and eventually) Mercury.
The third fastest is Mars in Libra (retrograde) currently out of orb of the *current* square.

So it’s THIS axis. Aries/Libra.
THOSE houses.
For right now.
The most pressing issues (although you will notice the four corners “work” together. It’s ONE story.)
This will shift in a matter of days, dig?
Because Mars will catch up.
And Pluto will go retrograde (Pluto moves slowly but still important to note this).

It reminds me of a dance. A wild jerky dance. You move here. And then I’ll go there. And then back over here. And a little to the right. And then the bombs start falling. But they aren’t really bombs.

The Mercury aspects don’t cause more problems, not even the inconjunct. True, you may not have time for everything. True, diplomacy may be needed. And true this is some serious shit you are entangled in TRUE you may have some regrets and TRUE you may have lost something along the way and TRUE you are finding your way back out of it and TRUE Sun conjunct Uranus square Pluto is…


I don’t read the other astrology blogs but I do watch some astro videos, here and there.

IS ANYONE TALKING ABOUT THIS? ABOUT THESE ASPECTS BEING YOUR… POWER? To make decisions. What is your life but a bouquet of decisions. This and not that, this and not that. And some of them stank. And some of them sweeten your days.

I haven’t checked the weather report in the big city but it looks like rain to me, overcast, with more than  chance of Moon in Taurus. Maybe you feel so solid despite your lack of hope because of this Moon and you FEAR the feelings-avoidant switch to Moon in Gemini because you KNOW it will put you out of touch with what you NEED to know.

Lucky for all of us, it’s a Cancer Moon weekend 🙂 Yes I said LUCKY. Lucky because we cannot avoid FINALLY THIS MONTH how our life makes us feel. And we cannot avoid the consequences of our actions. And this is GOOD. This is really really really really really good.
