Happy Monday, happy Full Moon hangover and happy Passover, for those that are celebrating. Let’s see what made the news as anticipated over the weekend. Wacky weather? Yep, killer tornadoes from Oklahoma to North Carolina…and some pretty intense storms up her in New York. Thanks to astrologer Richard Nolle, whose work and writing over the years have taught me the impact of Super Moons on weather patterns. War on women? Certainly women in Yemen were upset over remarks made by their president…so much so that they took to the streets in protest http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/apr/17/yemeni-women-protest-against-president-saleh Then there was this uplifting story about toxins injected into oil wells by oil companies, which now raise the concern that these toxins will contaminate water resources http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/17/science/earth/17gas.html?hp This story comes courtesy of Neptune (refers to water, oil, poisons) recently entering the sign of Pisces, the sign it rules, where it will hopefully raise our awareness of these environmental concerns so we can take constructive action. Stories about water shortages and pollution are not new, but planetary patterns suggest that are likely to be seen more frequently — and make greater impact — over the next 14 years. And oh — here’s another Neptunian oil-toxin story that just came over the wire “Mystery Illnesses Plague Louisiana Spill Crews” http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20110417/ts_alt_afp/usoilpollutionenvironmentbphealth
Today’s aspects are not especially tolerant of frivolity. Moon entered moody bastard Scorpio (not to be confused with moody bastard Pisces) at 2:19AM EDT, where it could well spend great chunks of time churning with emotion buried deep beneath the surface, while maintaining a convincing mask of detached calm. We may see continued frustration as a result of someone’s militant stance. For those who dare, we may also see some battering ram (Mars in Aries) breakthroughs in civil discourse, justice and fairness (Saturn in Libra), such as news of a bill passed in California requiring the teaching of gay rights and history in schools http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/educationnews/8454857/California-set-to-teach-gay-history-and-rights-in-schools.html
Temper your words and actions today with depth, substance and integrity.
