The Sun rolls through your 2nd house this month bringing great opportunities for making more money. Earned income often sees a boost during this transit. If you have money-making ideas or anything related to business goals, this could be a great time to research or take big or small or steps along your continuum.
Finances could definitely see some improvements and also note that spending also tends to increase during this transit, too. So while you see the increase in the amount coming it will likely translate to an increase in the amount going out, especially if you don’t specifically make an effort to not have your spending rise with your income. If you put aside a certain percentage of your new increased income, you will likely be glad you did.
In situations where finances are challenged, the Suns presence can help you supercharge your resourcefulness and find solutions in expected and unexpected places. Keeping your scope wide as you look for answers could help in finding resolutions that could wind up even better than before.
Sometimes the Sun moving through this house brings information or insight about blocks to financial prosperity. Seeing the issue(s) more clearly can help to bring resolution. Some work may have to be donee other strategy to help increase extra income and the usage of income that comes in is very prudent now. Setting financial goals and getting educated or having other support to reach them can make your money dreams a reality in the future and work you did on this topic in the past could come to fruition now in a big way.
The urge to buy luxury or more expensive items may be strong now. This transit could bring in your ideal high ticket item that you have been wanting or it could bring you clarity about what you want, which will help you draw it to you.
The Sun in this sector also brings opportunities to re-evaluate your value system. What is most important to you in your life? Is the amount of time you are spending on those most important things in the right ratio compared to their importance to you? Asking bigger questions about things like this now will lead to valuable insights.
The sector of your chart highlighted now also has to do with sustainability on any and all levels. Asking questions about your imprint and sustainability of your lifestyle is well-favored now. Taking measures to conserve or live lighter and more simply may be topics that come into the forefront.
It is interesting that this same house that rules luxury items also rules simple living. Rolling around in the possibilities of this spectrum is what is being brought up now. Some who have been living with a lot of excess may be drawn to pare down, and some who have been living with the bare essentials may be drawn to expand their interactions with the material realm. Either way that feels true to you is perfect 🙂
Your self-value translated out into the material realm is also a major topic with this transit. Your earning power may be your most valuable asset. It may be time to think about how to invest in your earning power as your greatest investment.
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.
