Below is a good example on how astrology works.  Many
psychics use astrology in
order to gain more prospective with time frames.

During the period of April
20 thru April 25 there is a major cardinal grand cross with Jupiter, Pluto,
Mars, and Uranus.  Expect national news to hit the media, a major weather
related event, political scandal, and stock market volatility to occur.

So far Jupiter and Uranus
have been in alignment for over 5 weeks.  These 2 planets together will
shake things up and create unexpected shocking news as well as literal
shocks.  We've seen some severe stories in the news such as the missing
Malaysia Airlines and a few earthquakes in several locations. This will
continue for another 2-3 weeks.  So there is potential for more of this
news.  If possible try to postpone travel or making any major change
(starting a new job, moving, etc.)

Pluto is back to Squaring
Uranus once again. It will be a time when people become more aware of and
in touch with their life purpose as it fits into the big picture. The old
way of life will be shaken up and wherever we are stuck we will experience
transformation and upheaval, but only for our greatest good both personally
and collectively. Undoubtedly there will be some dramatic changes in the
next few years, and with them will come some unexpected surprises that
bring great delight. Life may well look very different at the end of this
period.

Pluto offers deep
transformation in our futures. Often we feel under a Pluto cycle that our
life is out of our control. It can make us feel desperate, bringing us to
our knees, so that we'll let go, loosen grips, and change. Then the miracle
happens. We stop old patterns.

This gives us increase
shots with Uranus in Aries. These spurts of Pluto smash us open. As open,
we find how to really live, and the soul force that's able to renew itself.

Rebirth and innovation
bring a brand new sense of who you are. We might sense much "work" to do,
integrating the shadow. And yet, Uranus in the optimistic fire sign of
Aries keeps us in good spirits.

Put the two together -
social and personal structures may suddenly be destroyed. Powerful urges
for freedom and the desire to fully realize who and what we really are. A
massive power shift is indicated through sudden, unprecedented upheaval,
which could even lead to a new social or economic order.

Definitely expect major
swings in the stock market. Careful with investments. It is not the time to
switch to make major changes with any investment strategies. It is a good
time to keep things "safe." Gun control and major crimes are going to be
highlighted during this period.

Though the above is
applicable on a worldly level, the impact is felt out in the world. However
if both planets are in exact aspect to one of your planets or points, you
will feel the impact of it based on what that planet means in your chart.

Now when we blend the
other aspects going on that will also come in to contact such as Mars in
Aspect with Pluto, Mars in Aspect to Jupiter, Jupiter to Pluto, Jupiter to
Uranus, and Uranus to Pluto, we have a bit of a mess   When we layer the
more configurations to Uranus and Pluto it brings on more impulse for rash
urgency. It is definitely not a time to jump into rash behavior because
after this cycle is over one may look back and wish they could've refrained
from impulsiveness. 

Expect some political
scandal to go down.  Toronto Mayor, Rob Ford, will be impacted by this
cycle whereby more shocking news comes out to the media.  There is also a
potential chance that he can have some legal action taken against him
during those last 2 weeks of April.  However expect other political shocks
and some devastating news in the aviation industry.

The most important tip I
can offer is to not make any rash decisions.  If you are in a position
where you rely on the services of others try to delay the projects. For
example, a film director client wanted to start production on April 20th. 
I advised him to wait for another 2-3 weeks.  He would be relying on crew,
cast, and various people that could impact a smooth production.
