Apr 22 2009

Although every day is Earth Day, this is the anniversary. Moon gives an extra kick to the lover's transit (Venus conjunct Mars) around Dawn, finishing up in Pisces conjunct Venus exact at 6:29 am PDT, then brief Moon Void of Course till 7:09 am PDT when Moon enters Aries exact conjunct Mars. Moon will be square Pluto exact at 12:56 pm PDT. By afternoon, there may be a shift from basking in the afterglow to obsessive, jealous feelings, but these are a time to really go within and deal with insecurities, as is with any Moon/Pluto combination. Sun trine Pluto will likely enhance one's gravitas to withstand such a foray. Remember, of course, to be good to each other.

Regarding Birthcards: the book "What's Your Card" by the late Arne Lein, when found, is a treasure. If you ever see one at a garage sale, grab it, and share it. Unfortunately, his estate is of the fundamentalist mentality and is sitting on the copyrights, refusing to allow reprints. For instance, his description of the Birthcard of Susan Boyle (not today's but included here as she is current and "newsworthy"; besides she has substance and is a poke in the face to the image industry) includes words/phrases such as "...independent, strong-willed sensitivity, music, spotlight, lonliness may be necessary for personal growth, it may take some time for you to get your act together, money and fame...". Granted, our inner sceptic might say, oh how generic, to which we would respond: it's how the combination of flavors is described that floors us and many when studying the Cards.

The Birthcard today is the Queen of Clubs, a Mercury expression of a Mars core, with a 3 of Hearts inside and a 10 of Diamonds outside. QCs include Michael Bolton, Robert Novak, Nikolai Lenin, Debra Gangale, Arthur Laffer, Aaron Spelling, Cher, Nicolas Sarkozy, and Sir Paul McCartney.
