The Sun will roll through your 9th house this month activating your interest in places far away and sense of adventure. Travel yearnings abound and in instances where you can’t make a journey physically, stepping into being an “armchair warrior” will do, where watching, reading, or listening to others’ adventures can help fill that void for travel. Another fun way to bring the energy of different geographies into your own without leaving your town is to have culinary adventures with “theme” nights with cooking from different countries and cultures.
This time holds many great potentials for travel. To whet your travel appetite or have more support and resources for trips you would love to take, check out my site AstrologyKissedTravelBliss.com
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.
Things to be aware of with travel during this time through April 17 include: the likelihood that plans will shift or change altogether, so flexible travel plans are favored, the chance is increased for miscommunication, so check your vehicles, airport gates, things like that, very carefully and keep extra awareness for last minute gate changes, the chance for luggage to be lost is increased, so factor that in. Overall, Mercury retrograde influenced travel can be amazing, just factor in the potentials listed to have a more smooth trip 🙂 Trips back to places you have been before or to get back in touch with people you haven’t seen in a while are also more likely as Mercury retrograde tends to bring strong elements from the past.
Starting around 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. Travel plans may be easier to solidify and carry through during this time.
The Sun’s movement through your 9th house can also activate spiritual studies or church-related activities. Inspiration and optimism often accompany this transit so have a notebook ready for the great ideas and insights that will roll through you. Opportunities to step up your participation in Spirit-driven activities will be more likely at this time.
The desire to learn will likely be strong this month. Going on a ‘library bender’ is a fantastic way to use this energy. It favors breadth over depth so expect to be a little scattered with your interests. Courses of study and education of any kind could be a great use of the current and upcoming energy. This could be an amazing time to commit to courses of study for hobby, self-development, or professional reasons.
Intuition will be strong and favoring it over logic may prove extra fruitful now.
The draw to teach may be very strong now and favors creation of curriculum or other offerings. Opportunities for teaching could come up now and the transit favors saying YES if you are drawn to them but keep in mind that if you are launching something big, the stars will be more clear for that each day we move closer to April. If you teach a course regularly, it could be fine to launch it again now.
The house lit up for you now is also the house of publishing and public speaking. Opportunities in these arenas will burn bright for many and it is an excellent time to work in the backdrop on projects that are not ready to reveal. Launches of new publications are better favored out of the retrograde so feel into holding off until mid-April and after for these. An exception could be a re-launch of something that had been edited or slightly modified.
The 9th house that is highlighted for you this month is all about asking bigger questions and finding transcendant solutions. Imagine looking at any issue in your life from the top of a mountain. The view from this perspective can often bring solutions not thought of before. Albert Einstein said, “We cannot solve problems with the same line of thinking that created the problem.” Take this idea to anything that ails you at this time and watch the magic
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 Virgo Horoscope is more relevant for you.
