Between roughly 11 and 18 May 2014 Venus will ricochet through the gradually loosening Cardinal Cross. On the 11th and 18th of May the Moon happens to be Conjunct arms of the cross also, making those important peak days.
In the above diagram you can see that Venus has mounted the cross and arrived at an Opposition to Mars (libido!), while the Moon is Conjunct Mars and Opposing Venus, amplifying the effect for that day.
Those with key planets near the middle of the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn), it may well manifest as dramatic developments (the cross, involving virile planets) in personal and romantic relationships (Venus). The energy (that has to manifest through Venus, or ‘love’) is liberated, bold, and perhaps defiant; relationships may begin or be abandoned impulsively. Social interactions are powerful, passionate, even feral.
The wilder and more ruthless energy inherent in this cross will manifest early on (explosive emotions; raw sexual energy; powerful attraction and repulsion) as Venus initially connects to Mars and Pluto.
Closer to the 18th of May Venus completes this rare cross dance with a Square to Jupiter, which seems to be a high note to end on- possibly even a self-indulgent and romantically prodigal one.
