This month is ALL ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS. Friends, co-workers, clients, business partners, romantic partners or interests will take center stage. Topics like finding clarity about where you stand with people important to you, your relationship to them, and how it is best to move forward with re-connecting, collaborating, committing, or splitting will all take major focus at this time as lingering retrograde energies bring back issues from the past and test previous decisions and commitments. Getting towards mid-month and after, the energies shift to NEW relationship or NEW potentials within current relationships.
The relationship with self is the primary relationship from which everything else extends and this time can offer great opportunities to evaluate inner issues honestly and motivate to take action on shifting individual patterns that can have profound effects on relationship patterns with others.
Alternatively, fun, romance, and flow could return to relationships in which they had become absent or challenged.
This sector highlighted that focuses on relationships, also includes the finding of perfect helpers. Anything from finding the perfect medical practitioner, therapist, electrician, accountant, administrator, has more promise now. Any type of professional that could help you in any area of your life, has an increased potential to be drawn to you right now! Wonderful synergistic arrangements hold great promise now.
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.
This sector of the chart also has to do with aesthetics so you may have the urge to decorate, spruce up, or move things around. This month could be great for making small, easy, and inexpensive design-based decisions and purchases, but for the bigger, more expensive, and harder to change design projects, more into mid-April and after could be better.
Same goes for big beauty moves – anything more permanent may be better holding off but easy things that are easy to correct or change could flow fine now all month. For the big moves, mid-month and after have more open energy. Always remember to follow your intuition with these big decisions as even if the general transits are supportive, things in your personal chart could conflict with that energy, so go with your gut.
If you are on a budget, into environmentally-friendly focus, or just want to incorporate bonding with your friends, or meeting new friends into your redecorating process, something fun is to have a ‘home item swap party’ with friends. Each person bringing a potluck food/drink item to share and some items from their home that they are done with. Everyone will leave from this gathering with new items without spending any money
It is also a great time for entertaining, and a magical time for friends, fun, and gatherings.
Just note that plans until around mid-month are more subject to change and definite plans could still work out but may get ‘called into question’. Impromptu gatherings can work out really well. More solid plans are better for the second half of April.
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 Scorpio Horoscope is more relevant for you.
