Nicols' weekly here. She writes like she knows you.
April 20th to 27th
A rare Cardinal Cross will occur this week
with four planets in Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn)
all at 13 degrees, pitted against each other by either 90 degrees or 180
degrees angles. This intense energy has been building for about seven
months. (Although Uranus and Pluto have not done this dance since the
1930s.) It is violent in nature and ready to explode. Upheavals in the
world, including natural disasters, financial and political shifts of
power and random acts of violence are some indications of its build up.
