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 is a fantastic time to learn or deepen knowledge of another language 🙂
Potentials for long-distance or international travel are especially amplified at this time. But the odds are greatly increased that any travel adventures, near or far, await. While this time holds many great potentials for travel from the astrological perspective, of course, the manifestation of these potentials will be dependent on world and your local circumstances.

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. 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 take courses of study for hobby, self-development, or professional reasons.
Intuition will be strong and favoring it over logic may prove extra fruitful now.
Writing, publishing, and public speaking projects are lit up BEAUTIFULLY at this time!
The draw to teach may be very strong now and favors creation of curriculum or other offerings. The house lit up for you now is also the house of publishing and public speaking. Opportunities in these arenas could come up now and the transits now could bring in big news and big opportunities. Some of these will have some tilt to the past but there are also wonderful possibilities for totally new ideas and ventures.
The 9th house that is highlighted for you this month is all about asking bigger questions and finding transcendent 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 ?
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.
