The Suns placement in this sector could bring some insights into your true calling and luck in finding a more perfect match. If you are drawn to take bold action on this or any other front, try to lean more towards the end of the month and do keep in mind that anything done now will likely be tested and reconsidered for the rest of 2018. If you can take action on your new reality while simultaneously keeping a safety net in place while the new path develops, that will be much favored at this time to help buffer you through the retrograde focus that stays strong until well into December.
If you are not quite ready to make the change, this is a great time start (or continue) to put together your plan for changing directions. Research and reconnecting with contacts from the past for advice and to check into options are great ways to use the retrograde energy present now and for a while to come. Taking small steps or doing low stakes things that you can easily add alongside whatever else you are doing are great ways to use this energy.
It is a great time to follow your intuitive nudges to study or try on certain work-related things and the more you can be open to the evolution of the experience instead of having an exact plan worked out, the better. Things you feel drawn to do now may not turn out to be what you thought but they can still turn out well and be a piece of the bigger picture and reaching of the ultimate goal.
Short-term jobs or other work opportunities have much favor now.
Don’t stress if a new job or opportunity has come in retrograde. There are many ways the energies can manifest that still make new things be good things 🙂
If you already love your work you may find you are extra-excited and ambitious now about things that you had ideas about in the past. Projects, areas of study, people, etc. from the past may resurface now and working along the continuum that was previously begun could yield exciting new directions and discoveries soon.
To understand Mercury retrograde energies better as you move throughout the time from around March 8th through all of April see my video on the topic.
To see an extensive list of things I love for March through Mid-December 2018 when the personal planet retrogrades dominate see my blog, Maximizing Personal Planet Retrogrades.
This same house rules your reputation out in the world. Your name and work might become greater known during this transit 🙂
For those who are retired or for whom ‘work/career’ isn’t relevant, the 10th house focus may cause you to be asking for or finding insights about your higher purpose. Taking action now, especially in the last week or so of the month, to put you on a path where you feel ‘on track’ is great use of the potentials of this month. Also, the window for taking action on things like education and ‘trying things on’ starts to open more after around April 19, especially as it relates to shorter-term commitments (like no more than 6-9 months courses of study).
Learning and looking into options are great ways to use the retrograde energies so there is plenty of room to explore, wonder, and dream, as well as looking deep into things relevant to your higher work in the world.
Since this house also rules father energy, you could find yourself focusing on your dad (or other father figure), or some situation of note may come up involving him. Maybe he needs help or he could be assisting you in some way.
If your birthday is late in the sign (or if you are reading for your rising sign and have a late degree) this report will start to be relevant for you towards the end of the month, for earlier in the month you many find that the Leo Horoscope is more relevant for you.
