The Cardinal Cross

MountainSpiritAstrologyLogoPlanetary configurations in the heavens are intriguing. From April 21-24, there is a group of planets in a formation known as a cardinal cross. All of the signs are divided into either fixed, cardinal or mutable. In April planets are in all four of the cardinal signs, producing opportunities, stress, and the need for diplomacy individually and politically.
