Hello, I’m Astrologer Patrick Arundell, and here is your Astrology Overview for WC21st April 2014. The week begins with the Sun continuing its journey in Taurus. This is asking us to consolidate, to look for value in what we do. And this is going to be emphasized once Mercury joins the Sun on Wednesday. However before then on Tuesday there is a Quarter Moon in Aquarius. This suggests that idealism can battle with the realism - especially when it comes to financial decisions, and you may find yourself with some choices which require some compromises, whichever way you go.
Still, Mercury's move soon sees it link in conjunction with the Sun. When these to get together so tightly it is known as combust. In a natal horoscope this can give people a wonderful mental brilliance, and ability to come up with fantastical ideas. Yet in a transit it can see people jump to conclusions rather too quickly, so it will be important to avoid that trap.
Yet in the second half of this week both the Sun and Mercury are being influenced highly positively, by the dreamy influence of Neptune. What we can take from this is that the practicality of Taurus is softened by the imagination that Neptune brings the situations. Put the two together and you can have a winning formula. And of course Taurus although Earth, and Fixed, is also ruled by Venus which in itself can be highly creative.
Ironically Venus is forging itself a great link with Saturn in the second half of this week. With Venus also in Pisces, Saturn provides a stabilising force, and if you do find yourself really clicking with someone or have done recently this can be an opportunity to forge even deeper bonds together.
However despite all this positivity, there is still a Grand Cardinal Cross in effect, which can be very volatile indeed. This can create a lot of tension, and see powerful forces opposing one another. It is not to be taken lightly. Expect developments on the world stage, whether the superpowers flex their muscles. The obvious platform for this would be in the Ukraine, but there are plenty of other situations where repressive energies are being used to withhold people's freedom of speech, and democratic will. Egypt is a very good example of this.
In our own personal situations it's just important not to be too rash and impatient if things do not go quite as quickly as we want. Laying down ultimatums can also lead to difficult outcomes. Where possible keep the diplomacy going. For the full inside track, please watch the FREE video or visit my site PatrickArundell.com
