Sorry I’ve been under the radar for several weeks. My faithful old friend Mac G5 resigned on me and I haven’t been able to write or create graphics.

The Cardinal Grand Cross is in maximum position this week. I told you to watch at the beginning of January didn’t I? Mars is slowing down in Libra exactly square to the Sun and Pluto in Capricorn, square to Jupiter in Cancer and opposite Uranus in Aries. Also Venus and Mercury are in Capricorn adding to the Capricorn influence. So if I have just named your sign, you know you should pay attention. A friend on Facebook just asked me yesterday if this would be “good interesting or bad interesting”…

I think this configuration is directly tied to my computer situation. I am definitely turning a corner and heading in a different direction.

I have something in my tummy that feels a little like an old ulcer acting up. I have been trying to get rid of a cough leftover from that Christmas cold I had. This is Mars I think just giving me a hard time. I’m a Cancer so the Grand Cross is naturally going to affect me one way or another. I eat sensibly and get plenty of rest. I’m not worried and I’m not really sick. I just got a new laptop computer and am excited about learning how to use it. I’m very busy with that as well as other stuff like taking down the Christmas tree. I’m not mad, I’m happy. I’m excited about my new toy. Well it’s a tool important for survival in today’s world and not a toy but you know. It’s like I said to my friend on Facebook, it depends on how you look at it.

One of my sons has an Aries ascendant but so far the Grand Cross doesn’t appear to have much impact on him yet. He’s healthy, he’s enjoying a little time off, going to the gym and seeing his friends, no complaints.
In my part of the country, Oakland, Bergen County, the biggest concern is the cold… if anything is aggravating folks, this would be it! Stay inside, drink lots of tea and soup, try to exercise and nurture the relationships with the ones you are stuck inside with. Spring will be here before you know it!
