The Sun brings attention to your 10th house this month. The 10th house rules your work and career. This transit could bring hard-won recognition. It could also bring scrutiny from yourself as you look at your work and see if it matches what you really want to do. In the case where you are not really excited about your field of work or workplace, you may be very motivated to make some strides towards changing that.
Mercury retrograde energies are very strong all of March and linger through April 17. Remember that the odds that decisions made will either be notably changed soon or called into question. Things done in this time frame with certain intention will likely turn out differently than planned. That doesn’t have to a bad thing, though, as many wonderful surprises could come from experimentation now. Just be extra careful about commitments and legal or other agreements, leaving flexibility for the likely changes that will come. The closer we get to April 17, the more clear the energy is from the retrograde.
Starting April 18 and running through June 20 is a long stretch of time free from personal planet retrogrades and their shadow periods. More clarity about big decisions and plans may be easier to implement now and there are lots of great launch points open during this time.
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 not quite ready to make the change, this is a great time start (or continue) to put together your plan for changing directions. Taking steps in the backdrop, experimenting with a new path, or short-term trial periods are well-supported at this time. It is a great time for education so if learning new skills is part of your bigger plan, then you will have great opportunity for that now. As the month progresses, it gets better and better for BIG decisions and changes. Lots of magic and forward movement possible now!
If you already love your work you may find you are extra-excited now about it and could be entering a Renaissance Period with your work. Past labors can show up now in major ways and new projects can start or be brought out to the world with brilliant support. Opportunities, projects, or contacts from the past are more likely to resurface. NEW opportunities can come in suddenly or things planned in the past could work out in a wonderful way now.
Prepare to be busy and have a focus on business, getting organized, taking care of practical necessities in the forefront.
The area of the chart that is accentuated now also 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. Contemplation about a plan that would put you on a path where you feel ‘on track’ is great use of the potentials of this month and education and looking into options are great ways to use the the 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 all month and beyond through the year. Even if you can’t see exactly where you are going, taking obvious steps that present themselves now can feel very fulfilling and lead you on a powerful path of positive change. It is an amazing time to ‘try things on’ and experiment. As the month progresses, the energy becomes great for commitments and big steps. Something exciting to say YES to could come up that brings you great joy.
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 is going through something and 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.
