“A pessimist is a man who thinks all women are bad. An optimist is one who hopes they are.” Chauncey Depew 🙂

It could be the “early bird catches the worm” today with the Aquarius Moon’s early morning sextile to fortuitous Jupiter in “trailblazing” Aries (7:29 am EDT). The futuristic Moon in Aquarius is a perfect conduit for visionary Jupiter, the planet of expansion and optimism. With Moon-Jupiter we tend to be more upbeat emotionally, which may explain why we often attract more positive things to us under this influence.

Jupiter also governs our sense of humor and when aligned with the Moon, there can be more of an ability to see things from a humorous perspective, which can also be a good way to help endear other people to us. I think most of us like to be around people who can “lighten us up,” or make us laugh, don’t you?

The Moon will be in Aquarius all day again today, not really making any other major aspects, the rest of the day, after her sextile to Jupiter. Shortly after midnight tonight, she will shift into dreamy Pisces.

Wanted to also briefly mention that we are getting ready to have another “high-drama” Venus-Pluto hookup tomorrow (3:19 am EDT), which can often be a real “soap operish” type aspect in which we are tempted to go to extremes, especially in romance. Venus rules love and money. Pluto rules power and manipulation. This influence is already starting to apply so we may want to monitor ourselves today and make sure that we are not acting too pushy, accusatory, or self-serving. (We can also encounter boorish types who act this way with us.)

Also, it’s probably a good idea to hold off  issuing “Pluto” ultimatums for a few days. Venus-Pluto tends to fire up our emotions and passions.

Famous Birthdays April 26th: Michael Damian (49), Carol Burnett (78). BTW, Carol has both her Moon and Sun in down-to-earth, easy to relate to Taurus, and her Sun is exactly conjunct her Venus in Taurus, endowing her with a lot of warmth to her personality and also giving her a strong personal power of attraction (Venus). Sun-Venus aspects also can denote artistic ability.

She also has Mars and Neptune conjunct in exacting Virgo which can be a phenomenal force for stoking the creative juices (Mars energizes whatever it touches and Neptune rules the imagination, also acting). Too, Carol, has her Moon trine Jupiter (sense of humor), a very similar aspect to the Moon-Jupiter sextile influence that we have in operation today, an aspect which I also happen to have exact in my chart. Of course, Carol Burnett is a legend in the comedy world. I have admired her all my life for being so talented and funny.  In my own way, I also try to be lighthearted and optimistic, and I can usually manage to find the humor in things, but I’m certainly no comedian. How about you? Can you usually see the humor in situations? Do you think others find you funny? Do you have a Moon-Jupiter linkup in your horoscope? Or perhaps Mercury-Jupiter or Sun-Jupiter (equivalent type energy)? Hopefully, too, we’ll all find something to laugh about today.

“A well-developed sense of humor is the pole that adds balance to your steps as you walk the tightrope of life.” William Arthur Ward

Enjoy your day!
