The Cardinal Cross will hit its peak next week, and the upcoming horoscopes will be devoted to it (how it will impact each sign).
As the energy builds, there's some interesting shifts going down. Tomorrow (April 19th) features an oddball mix. Mars Rx in Libra will inconjunct Venus at 14 degrees Pisces. I described that aspect in the Cardinal Cross article (link in the first sentence), but again, it's a disconnect between actions (Mars) and what you want (Venus). There's also an exact inconjunct between Mercury in Aries and Saturn Rx at 21 degrees Scorpio. This is a disconnect between impulsive speech/ideas (Mercury) and intensified limits or fears (Saturn).
Two inconjuncts make for a jarring day. Push for what you want, but you misfire, or give up, or what you want evaporates (typical Venus in Pisces). Was that really what you wanted? Speak up (Mercury in Aries) only to run into a wall of silence or secrets (Saturn Rx in Scorpio). Or have your boundaries (Saturn) assaulted by someone's irritating, button-pushing words. Best advice for April 19th is to not expect things to go smoothly. If you have an important something scheduled, have a contingency plan.
And more...the Sun will enter Taurus. That's significant because Taurus is a Fixed sign, and right now, Fixed signs are sorely underrepresented in the whirlwind of Cardinal and Mutable signs. This won't make a huge difference (yet) but if you need an anchor, look to the Taurus house in your chart. The Sun will be lighting it up, and that's where you can find some stability in the days to come. Taurus is about consistency, routine, working with your existing resources, and survival. Those are your safe words, and the area of your chart occupied by Taurus is where you might find some sustenance. It won't cancel out the effects of the Cross, but it helps to know where you can turn to for shelter.
You don't have to get fancy, or come up with a plan to save the day. Just dig in and work with what you've got (Taurus).
Those with natal/progressed planets, angles or Nodes in the following degrees will feel these aspects:
- 20-21 degrees Aries or Scorpio (Mercury/Saturn inconjunct)
- 13-14 degrees Libra or Pisces (Venus/Mars inconjunct)
- 0-1 degrees Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Scorpio, Aquarius or Leo (Sun into Taurus)
