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. Unresolved issues in relationships may come back into the forefront as may people from the past. Fun, romance, and flow could return to relationships in which they had become absent or challenged. New and important relationships could also come in at this time.
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.
This sector 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.
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, or make personal beauty changes. This could be a great time to clean up, clear out, and beautify your living and/or work space.
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 also can be a great time for entertaining, and a magical time for friends, fun, and gatherings. If the circumstances prevent in-person connecting, virtual friend or group connections could be how the energy manifests.
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.
