I asked my shrink today if April was any crazier than usual. She said, "So far no, March was worse," but then said it's been nuts all year. Yeah, that's not gonna improve from what I hear.
"Often a crisis can be a blessing in disguise, and we should all be glad that Jupiter is involved in the Cardinal Grand Cross. Although in part, Jupiter serves to amplify the potentially scary effects of Mars, Uranus and Pluto, Jupiter also brings hope. Jupiter can give you the philosophical strength and wisdom to make the whole mad explosion of life make sense. Getting out of a tight spot takes hard work… but it also requires the belief that the light at the end of the tunnel ISN’T just an oncoming train."
And then there's Libra Seeking Balance:
"For those expecting the Grand Cross to bring closure or a clear end to some phase in their life or a relationship, I am beginning to see evidence this may not occur right away. In part because a Grand Cross is a stable pattern with the four corners balancing each other, and due to the Sun and Mercury both in Taurus by the time the last aspect rolls into place, giving us seven planets in earth and water. Have you ever been driving along and run into a patch of deep, gooey mud? That’s the effect all those planets in earth and water will have on the momentum built up during Aries Season. Rather than continue to blindly dash forward, we could end up sitting in one place having to deal with all the side issues we had previously ignored."
