It’s mad out there, OK? Neptune’s out on a limb, Uranus is going all futuristic and not giving ongoing situations any grief as yet, although that is dependent on April’s developments. It’s termini city out there, changing of pathways and tracks, switching of decisions and dreaming in futures unimaginable even four months ago. At the start of April there’s a warlike, unholy trinity of retrogrades, with Mercury, Mars and Saturn all going backwards and Pluto preparing to join them. By the time of the relatively tame full Libra Moon on the 6th, Mercury has stabilised and begins to move forward, so accuracy may be more forthcoming and conclusions can start to be drawn, although with Mars standing still all month and not inching forward until after the 13th, real answers to current problems won’t be found until the second half of April. Venus starts its four month stay in Gemini, creating a superficial gloss and veneer of living the dream, but the underlying energy of Mars in early Virgo is going to cut away the banal and expose the root core of outstanding issues. More examples of political and economic connivance will surface, and many politicians may lose their jobs. With Uranus opposing a number of British and European interests around the 20th-23rd , I expect this to be a time of big disruption and challenge, with issues around fuel and power predominating. Big change? You heard it here first – 2012 is the final run up, it’s 2013 that will change everything.
