THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY|
April 14th to April 19th 2003
MONDAY APRIL 14
Full Moon in Libra
Wednesday’s Full Moon takes place in the sign of the Scales.
That’s apt. The world now has much to weigh up. But it is not unusual.
There is always a Full Moon in Libra around this time of year while
the Sun is in Aries. Libra and Aries are opposite signs. This Full Moon
though, occurs at 26 degrees, and Mars, meanwhile, is at the 26th degree
of Capricorn. The three bodies are forming tight, right angles. That’s
rare. And powerful. Tomorrow, I’ll look at who it may affect.
TUESDAY APRIL 15
Zodiac a great circular piano
Think of the zodiac as a great circular piano with 360 different
notes. The coming Full Moon will cause just three of these to ring out
but they will strike a chord in many of us. People likely to feel the
strongest resonance include those born between August 1935 - July 1936,
February - April 1967, February - April 1976 or in July 1946, September/October
1954, January 1955, May 1955, September 1966, August 1975. Also sensitive
will be anyone with a birthday on or around July 19, any year. For all
these (and more) the next few days bring drama!
WEDNESDAY APRIL 16
Full Moon - sensitive birth dates
Tonight, the Moon is Full and one way or another, we will all
feel its influence. Tempers flare and passions rise at times like this.
Because the Moon is in Libra, people born under the scales will be particularly
prone to moments of drama and/or delight – especially if they were born
around October 19. Likewise, people with a birthday today or tomorrow.
And to the list of other ‘hot dates’ that I gave yesterday, I should
add anyone born between November 1981 and March 1982, or in October
1982, September 1974, November 1969, April 1958, January 1946... or
THURSDAY APRIL 17
Full Moon - sensitive birth dates - part two
Yesterday, I wrote about birth dates that would be extra sensitive
to the Full Moon. I meant to single out October 19 for special attention.
But the heatwave sapped my concentration and I inadvertently typed the
word September. Perhaps this was a Freudian slip. Due to the position
of Venus, September 17, 18 and 19 are also ‘hot dates’ now. Folk born
around March 15 and 16 can expect excitement soon, too. And Saturn is
about to bring the end of a drama to people born around June 17 and
18 or December 16 and 17.
FRIDAY APRIL 18
Anglo Saxon goddess of fecundity
Eostre or Eastre was an Anglo Saxon goddess of fecundity. Her
power is traditionally celebrated, in a series of wild celebrations,
every spring. Eggs are also an ancient fertility symbol, suggesting
the birth of a new season. The cross on a hot cross bun, meanwhile,
is an ancient pagan hieroglyph representing the four equal quarters
of the year. And as for chocolate? Nobody even pretends to know what
that has to do with anything! But that doesn’t stop us enjoying it.
Whatever you’re celebrating this weekend, I wish you all the best.
SATURDAY APRIL 19
Venus and Mars
Mars may be in separate sectors of the sky but they are clearly in close
contact. Soon both will move into new zodiac signs within hours of each
other. It is an excellent week for artists, dancers and people who are
looking for love.
Jack Nicholson (Taurus born April 22, 1937) Taureans are smart, strong
and sensual. They know what they want and, one way or another, they
usually get it. Not all Taureans understand the power of their natural
charm and sex appeal. Some hide under a bushel. Others, like Jack
Nicholson, who turns 66 on Tuesday, just cannot stop it from oozing
effortlessly out of their every pore.
Happy birthday also this week to: Today April 19; Tim Curry (57),
Kate Hudson (24) and Ashley Judd (35), Tomorrow April 20; Jessica
Lange (54), Ryan O'Neal (62) and Luther Vandross (52), Monday April
21; Queen Elizabeth II (77), Andie MacDowell (45), Iggy Pop (56) and
Robert Smith (44), Tuesday April 22; Peter Frampton (53) and Jack
Nicholson (66), Wednesday April 23; Lee Majors (64) and Shirley Temple
(75), Thursday April 24; Shirley MacLaine (69) and Barbra Streisand
(61), Friday April 25; Bjorn Ulvaeus (58), Al Pacino (63) and Renee
