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.
Employment changes or the process of considering a change or looking into options are all more likely at this time. Be open to the possibility that although stress and uncertainty may be brought by these changes, there could be opportunities to create more of the life you have envisioned for yourself that you were too hesitant to jump into without the intense provocation or other incentive that could come now.
The Suns placement in this sector could bring some insights into your true calling and luck in finding a more perfect match.
New opportunities or ones from the past through ideas, clients, contacts, or anything else could help in a big way. 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, and researching/gathering information are well-supported at this time.
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. Opportunities, projects, or contacts from the past can resurface with new life. 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, and also for all others still in the workplace, 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. 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. It might be a good time to check in with him or work on your relationship in some way.
February 2023 through April 7, 2023 is a magical time when any progress that seemed slow for many months, can race forward at top speed and positive changes can occur surprisingly quickly. Not only are the personal planets (Mercury, Venus, and Mars) direct, ALL the OUTER PLANETS are also ALL DIRECT! This is a very rare time in the cosmos. Things that were delayed for months or even years, can manifest in days. March and April are extra special in the way that there is a TON of Aries energy which amps up the direct forward motion radically. This is a rare time where new beginnings are supremely supported and things that were blocked for months or even years can race forward at lightning speed.
After April 7, we start the slide into the inward and backward flow of Mercury retrograde. This is the critical point where the tides that had been flowing out, start flowing in. Changes to plans, schedule shifts, uncertainty, confusion, appliances, devices, and vehicles going haywire, blocks to planning ahead, miscommunications, and major focus on past events and people become the norm for this time. It can be an amazing time for clearing up unfinished business, reveling in what you have created/enjoying the fruits of your labors, fun connections with people you don’t usually get to connect with often, and my favorite, “last-minute magic”. The more you keep your schedule as open as possible, the less rescheduling you will have to do when plans inevitably shift and the more space you have to say YES to wonderful offers and invites that come out-of-the-blue.
The heat of eclipse season IS FULL ON in April and May. The Taurus/Scorpio eclipse cycle and a new polarity, Aries/Libra, are revving up to full heat. Change is in the air! Major goodbye’s and brilliant hello’s may be in store soon. A New Moon/Solar Eclipse Black Moon Eclipse in Aries on April 19/20 starts a new cycle of initiation that goes from now through 2025.
Aries energy takes center stage exploding into a full fire festival with 10 planets/events in Aries, including the Black Moon Eclipse. Inspiration, motivation, impetus, excitement, zest, ambition, all soar to new heights. Along with these awesome potentials, we could see an increase in aggression, arguments, recklessness, impulsivity, and impatience.
Taurus starts to share the spotlight with Aries bringing great help through grounding and focus. The fiery excess from so much Aries is well-tempered by level-headed Taurus practicality, caution and discipline.
Mars in finally recently changed signs after being in Gemini for 7 months! Cancer is the new focus and obsessive Mars will bring passionate attention to home, family, housing, real estate, home business, moves, and our inner world.
