Mar 21 - Apr 19
- Your waiting is over and there’s no stopping you now that the Sun is spreading its light in your 1st House of Self. But it’s not just about what you do today; it’s also about what you say. Use your words wisely because they carry your message far and wide. However, an overly assertive posture only causes trouble. Thankfully, your charm will accomplish more than direct confrontation. Gandhi said, “Be truthful, gentle and fearless.”
- Good intentions can lead you down a troubled path today if you aren’t willing to meet reality halfway. Sometimes a brilliant idea just pops into your awareness and you know it’s your future course of action. Unfortunately, current circumstances are changing and you must review and revamp your plan as necessary. Your self-assuredness can backfire if you are so convinced of your success that you ignore the signs around you. Poet Mary Oliver wrote, “To pay attention, this is our endless and proper work.”
- You are convinced your brain is working at peak efficiency today, yet you wonder why you continue to run into obstacles that you didn’t notice earlier. Although you might refuse to believe your senses at first, your experience contradicts your assumption that you can think your way out of any dilemma. Clever Mercury turns retrograde in your 1st House of Self, giving you time to rethink your logic and recreate a better plan before trying again. Sometimes, a totally fresh look at a problem is all you need to see the solution you previously missed.
You might feel as if your love life has taken two giant steps backward this week. You have so much that you want to say and you might do your best to express yourself. Unfortunately, the way you intend your words to come out and the way they actually do will be two different things. Mercury will turn retrograde in your sign on Thursday, while also touching Venus. Complications in your love life that stem from unresolved issues from the past are likely to resurface. Be patient since it'll take longer than you'd like to feel like you have any answers.
