for April 18 to 25, 2014


  "In the midst of difficulty lies opportunity." Albert Einstein

                                        Plus what will today be like                            


TODAY IS ONE OF THOSE DAYS when you will think clearly and know what you want. So listen to your soul and be guided by it. The Moon will be in Sagittarius until 9:30 P.M. when it moves into Capricorn.

Plus the vibration along with the Sagittarius Moon will be the Moon trine Mercury starting in the early A.M. And then at 9:30 P.M. as the Moon is about to move into Capricorn it will trine the Sun which will be about to move into Taurus.

This combination in the skies puts the social atmosphere into an orbit of gooodness. So be ready to get out and about tonight. This will be a good day for change, for adjustment and for avoiding an attitude.

As a matter of fact look for some attitudes and try and ignore them. After all you don't want your good time ruined by someone else's nonsense. And that very nonsense will come from the activity surrounding the Cardinal Cross.


LIKE IT OR NOT if you are an Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn you are heading for some big learning expaeriences. Which if you look at it with a wise look it is good. Because life is all about learning lessons.

The Cardinal Cross involved four planets. Pluto is at 13 degrees of Capricorn; Uranus is 13 of Aries, square Jupiter at 13 degrees of Cancer and Mars is retrograde at 14 degrees pf Libra. By Tuesday Mars will be at 13 degrees of Libra and will be opposite Uranus and square both Jupiter and Pluto.

This is cosmic energy heading our way.  If you are a Cardinal sign be conscious of the need to control the energy. Then it will be an awesome experience in the next few weeks. If you don't use any self control and just act that is when the trouble starts.

Everyone knows what happens when energy gets out of control.

A fine example of an out of control woman is TORI SPELLING.  She is out to get her husband DEAN MC  DERMOTT, who cheated on her. She is out for revenge and will get it on a reality show "True Tori" which set to start on Wednesday, April 22 on Lifetime.

 Actually she has started her cause. Her revenge is everywhere on the internet, in every magazine and newspaper, plus every TV talk show. And then to add the finishing touch the reality series. And the stange thing he (DEAN MC DERMOT)  is particpating.   

She is a Taurus with the Moon in Scorpio born on May 16, 1973 and he is a Scorpio. the two are now doing their dance of revenge with no thought of the imact on their four young children.  They are both being influenced by Saturn in Scorpio.

Then we have BETHENNY FRANKEL, sho is a Scorpio born on November 4, 1970 who is so intent on fighting the big fight for a divorce from her husband of three years JASON HOPPY, she has thrown caution to the wind.

Who will suffer the most?Her four year old daughter BRYN, who is a Taurus born on May 4, 2010, The child has a Capricorn Moon and now must under go a psychiatrist evaluation order by the court. Then the court will decide who gets custody of the child.

That is a sad state of affairs for anyone, much less a child because the parents are so involved with their divorce battle.

CHELSEA CLINTON a Pisces born on February 27, 1980 is pregnant making the former President BILL CLINTON and the former Secretary of State HILLARY CLINTON grandparents for the first time.

And the gossip up and down the street is will becoming a grandmother cause HILLIARY to drop her plans to seek the Democratic nomination for President in 2016. One would doubt that. The future grandmother is a Scorpio.

ROSIE O'DONNELL who is also a Pisces born on the cusp of Aries on March 21, 1962 dropped 50 pounds. Obviously as the result of her recent heart attack. That scare would send anyone to drop pounds.

ROSIE will be on hand for the BARBARA WALTERS party in May on "The View" and you will have a chance to see her weight lass first hand.

Another Pisces ROB KARDASHIAN who was born on March 17, 1987 made headlines yesterday but today he denied them. Seems reports had ROB in rehab, but almost immediately his Reps claimed that that rumor was not true.

Glad to hear ROB is on the straight and narrow. After all he is seen on the family show on E channel and he would be missed. Even if the rating on the show"Keeping Up with the Kardashians" are falling fact some still love it.

Watching JENNY MC CARTHY, who is a Scorpio born on November 1. 1971 tell her co workers on "The View " of her engagement was a real tear jerker. She was so happy with her Yellow Sapphire ring and her husband to be DONNIE WALHBERG even showed up.

DONNIE is a Leo born on August 17, 1969. Now two fixed signs usually don't work well together, but JENNY and DONNIE looked so happy let's hope they can make it longer than 72 days.

Asked when they are going to marry JENNY said it might be August or next year or whatever. And then her boss BARBARA WALTERS offered her apartment if they marry in September. Imagine being married in BARBARA'S home. Wow.

BARBARA IS A Libra born on September 25, 1929 and is about to retire. She will be honored by the 11 co hosts on "The View" in May. They will all be on hand to honor her.

She has said she is eyeing an interview with MONICA LEWINSKY, a Leo who was former President BILL CLINTON'S, (also a Leo), pal while he was in the White House. That interview really would be a block buster.

SELENA GOMEZ, who is a Cancer born on July 22, 1992 has been busy making change just as predicted. She is back with her favorite water sign JUSTIN BIEBER,  who is a Pisces born on March 1, 1995. The two were very cozy during the visit to the Coachella festival over the weekend.

Then SELENA also took action and let her mother and step father go as her managrs. They have managed her career since her Disney days. She is now looking for a new manager. Seems her parents did not care for JUSTIN and made it know to anyone who would listen.

JUST IN CASE YOU ARE INTERESTED and you should be. The President of Russia, VLADIMIR PUTIN is a Libra born on October 7, 1952.

His Sun is 13 degrees of Libra exactly where the Grand Cardinal Cross will fall on April 20. So if you are taking bets on a take over in the Ukraine you should be aware that PUTIN is in no mood for compromise. He is in the mood for change.

  \When it comes to mothers 16 year old ARIEL WINTER found herself a good one. ARIEL is one of the stars of  the hit TV show "Modern Family" obviously making plenty of money.ARIEL is an Aquarian born on Januray 28, 1998.  She has an Aquarian Moon also and it is conjunct Uranus.

So the relationship between mother and daughter would be erractic. Which it is.

She has been in court in the recent past to separate from her mother. This has been legally estalished and now ARIEL'S sister Is her guardian.

Her father takes care of her finances. Well her mom has decided she wants to know exactly what is happening to her child's money. So what has she done but filed litigation to gain access to ARIEL'S finances.

So then ARIEL'S side filed charges saying her mother is using "Psychological Control" of her daughter and will ruin her career. They want her to stop abusing her daughter and leave her alone.The case is now back in the courts.
