“Safe upon the solid rock the ugly houses stand: Come and see my shining palace built upon the sand!” Edna St. Vincent Millay.

The Moon enters nesting Cancer at 7:39 am EDT accenting home and family matters. Cancerian energy is nurturing and protective and is sometimes afraid of letting go or venturing outside of perceived comfort zones. If instead of taking giant leaps forward today, some of us may wish to begin our respective journeys with baby steps, that’s quite alright. What’s most important, is that we make that first step. Sometimes, too, when we proceed more tentatively, we become aware of meaningful realities that we never even knew existed.

The Sun is finishing up its annual romp in Aries today.  It’s perhaps a little pooped, anyway, getting ready to head into consolidating Taurus.  So much recent focus on self-discovery and trailblazing. The Sun’s quinqunx to Saturn in Virgo  also has Saturn asking the Sun now for a full acccounting of  what he has gleaned in recent weeks.  He is anxious for the Sun to perfect himself and his skills.

“This is the very perfection of a man, to find out his own imperfections.” Saint Augustine.

Memorable event in history on this date: April 19, 2005 – Pope Benedict XVI, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, becomes the 265th Pope. The Cardinal (b. 4/16/27) had the transiting and transforming Pluto in Sagittarius exactly conjoined his 10th house of career when he became Pope. Pluto often delivers to us those life-altering experiences and circumstances that can only be described as our destiny. Pluto also rules power and control and Pluto’s alignment on his 10th house conferred upon him the ultimate power as head of the Catholic church. The sign of Sagittarius is on the Cardinal’s career house in his birth chart, originally suggesting a possible life path in religion, as Sagittarius rules traditional religion. The Pope also has several other aspects in his horoscope that reiterate a more spiritually focused undertaking for this life.

Peace and love, everyone.  Enjoy your Monday!
