Now, the week ahead:
Thursday, April 1: The Moon moves from secretive Scorpio into all-knowing Sagittarius early this morning, setting up a day of powerful intuition and harmony. Pay attention and reap rewards that you deserve. It was April 1, 2004, that Google introduced gmail. It was not well accepted due to the association with April 1st hoaxes. No one wanted to take it seriously.
Friday, April 2: Mercury and Pluto make a friendly connection that may bring a powerful idea which gets put on hold because nobody wants to be giving today. So, breathe. And wait your turn. Stanley Kubrick’s epic film, 2001 A Space Odyssey, opened to screenings in Washington, D.C. on April 2, 1968.
Saturday, April 3: At 11:41 p.m., Mercury joins the Sun and Venus in the sign of Aries. Thinking changes from soft and intuitive to assertive and fearless. This will play out in the days and weeks ahead. The great saviour of the African gorillas, Jane Goodall, celebrates birthday number 87 today.
Sunday, April 4: The Sun is in Aries. The Moon is in Capricorn. They are 90 degrees apart at 2:48 p.m. It’s the third quarter Moon, a challenging time when seriousness stands in the way of impulsive behaviour. Be sure to wear a mask and do so with a smile. It was April 4, 1968 that the Rev, Martin Luther King Jr. was shot dead as he stood on the balcony of a motel in Memphis, Tennessee. Shaw Festival mounted a stage play about this night and it played to glowing audiences.
Monday, April 5: Heart and mind are friendly today. Good news can do that. An idea that makes life better can do it too. It was April 5, 1987 that Fox TV first aired two new shows: The Tracey Ullman Show (featuring the Simpsons); and Married with Children.
Tuesday Apr. 6: A sexy and friendly start to the day as Venus and Mars are in perfect harmony early this morning. And the Moon makes it sweeter with both of them, later tonight. It was April 6, 1906 in London, England that the world saw the first animated film, Humorous Phases of Funny Faces. It was a little over three minutes long and was tabletop animation, utilizing stop-motion photography.
Wednesday, April 7: The Moon in Aquarius is friendly with Jupiter early on today. A gift from the Cosmos makes for smiling faces, as wrongs get turned right. Then we get lazy, with not much happening. Even if it seems like there is activity, it likely won’t amount to much. So, enjoy the early good news! If she were still here, Lady Day, aka Billie Holiday, would be 106 years old. Born April 7, 1915, she sold a standing-room only capacity audience at Carnegie Hall on March 27, 1948, just 11 days after being released from prison. She was a tormented genius, with even Frank Sinatra modelling his style on her.
That’s AonA for now. Next week is the new Moon in Aries on Sunday, April 11.
Until then, shine on!
