“The rebel can never find peace.  He knows what is good and, despite himself, does evil. The value which supports him is never given to him once and for all.” Albert Camus.

We still have the wacky, non-conforming Aquarian Moon, so it is mandatory we wear hippie beads and bell bottoms today. Incense burning is optional.

Warrior Mars in Leo is also inching closer to an exact quinqunx (stressful) to Pluto in Capricorn. This is a tricky influence.  Combined with the rebel Aquarian Moon, it tends to arouse our anarchistic impulses and whets our appetite for wanting to lord power over others.  We can also be very intense and obsessed with a course of action now. Overall, this is a more challenging aspect in which it is harder to disengage our energies.

On the bright side, we have Venus and Mercury conjoined in Taurus, signifying a good measure of creative energy to tap into. It’s especially favorable for producing things of beauty, or for beautifying ourselves, our surroundings.

Memorable event in history on this date: April 8, 1975 – Frank Robinson manages his first baseball game with the Cleveland Indians and becomes the first black major league manager.

On that historic date, Mercury was conjunct benefic Jupiter in Aries (the sign which rules sports) and both were “opposite” transforming Pluto in Libra. Mercury “the Winged Messenger” governs communication, while Jupiter represents expansion of our horizons. Usually, when we get Mercury-Jupiter together, the news of the day is more hopeful, positive. We feel there is very little that we cannot do. We have the “sky is the limit” mentality.

Meanwhile, Pluto often acts  as a “reforming agent” upon the collective.  It’s ray is typically notable when we hear of major revampings or overhauls. The “opposition aspect” signals “turning points.”

So when we combine all these complex elements together in one giant astrological mixing bowl (along with my sage interpretation) we end up with a historic news story with expansive, transformational implications for sports as well as the general public (Libra).  Cleveland also beat New York, 5-3.

“God watches over drunks and third baseman.” Leo Durocher.

On a Personal Note: You may have noticed I have done some “revamping.”  Gone is the “Daily Astrology Scoop Horoscope” header which I always thought was too long anyway. Instead I have replaced that with my name which is also too long. (These kinds of changes happen when you get the recalcitrant Aquarian Moon with Pluto retrograde.) Anyway, I have decided that I am going to continue with a daily astrology blog (unless I take a day off) but it may not always have a daily horoscope component to it.  What I will have is a mix of world events, as well as events in history, laced with horoscopes of prominent people in the news and celebrities. I just thought this would be more fun and also more where I can make a worthwhile contribution. Hope you continue to join me daily. It’s much more fun when you’re here.)

Peace and love, everyone.  Enjoy your day!
