“Life’s problems wouldn’t be called ‘hurdles,’ if there wasn’t a way to get over them.” Unknown source

Things may be a bit more “topsy turvy” today with the Moon in emotional Cancer forming squares to unpredictable Uranus in Aries and restrictive Saturn in Libra, and also an opposition to reforming Pluto in Capricorn. This alignment activity sets up a dynamic cardinal cross in the sky. Cardinal sign energy (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) is very active and initiating. The pace around us now could quicken. Somewhat of a roller coaster. We progress now by being flexible, aware, and simply going with the flow. Sometimes, this buildup of cardinal energy spawns heroic or uncommon efforts.  Other times, creativity (Elvis Presley was born with a grand cardinal cross). Hopefully its appearance in your life today will have positive, exhilarating consequences.

BTW, last fall, when American Idol’s two new judges were formally announced, Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez, we had a cardinal grand cross exact in the sky. Again, it can be a highly creative, energizing configuration. Also a time when we feel more inclined or compelled to roll-out bolder agendas for ourselves, or are more amenable to changing things up, desiring newness and freshness. I was curious as to how Tyler and Lopez would fare on Idol, being chosen at that time,  but it appears that the viewer response has so far been favorable.

On a sweeter note, communicator Mercury and love maven Venus are aligned together in flirty Aries, boding well for weekend romance. This Mercury-Venus aspect will be exact on Monday. Too, with this same influence applying yesterday, it was announced that Beatle Paul McCartney is planning another trip down the aisle (trip #3) with his New York girlfriend of four years, Nancy Shevell (she’s reportedly a cousin to Barbara Walters). Not sure of the wedding date. Paul, a Gemini, has adventurous Mars and expansive Jupiter in new beginnings Aries presently sextiling his Sun (sense of self), so he is going through a more enthusiastic, optimistic phase (Jupiter-Sun aspects are often advised for weddings). Coincidentally, we had a similar type of Mars-Jupiter energy (the conjunction) in the royal wedding chart last week of Kate Middleton and Prince William.
