First, the good news—Mercury, god of communication—has gone direct again. You can now unfasten your seatbelts and move more confidently through your lives. Although you’ll still have to deal with the occasional screw-up, you can now purchase houses, cars and other big ticket items, as well as sign important documents with some degree of certainty that all will go smoothly.
And now, the really great news—in a few short weeks, it will officially be Spring! Hopefully, that will mean that all of this rude behavior by the weather will cease and desist. A lovely, leaf-budding, flower blooming landscape with mild, warm, caressing breezes would work for me and I suspect, you too.
Let’s show the weather how it’s done by breaking out all of those ideas, plans and projects you’ve been promising yourself you’d begin once the conditions were right. Once the sun goes into Aries, it’ll join with the planet Uranus—the god of the unexpected and the insightful—and all manner of wondrous events will occur. The conditions will be right for planting profitable gardens of brilliant adventures.
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) Although, at times it seems as though you’re engaged in an uphill struggle, your efforts are beginning to bear fruit. Continue letting your actions speak for you and be ready to enjoy well-deserved rewards. Someone from your past returns, offering help. Carefully, cautiously consider their offer—there are good aspects to it.
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) These are turbulent times for you. Circumstances are asking you to move beyond your comfort zone of slow, deliberate action and increase your speed of thought and action. Be true to yourself and voluntarily shed the habits of the past and adapt to the world at a more rapid and rewarding pace.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) Your ruler, Mercury, has finally gone direct so you can more freely move forward, too. Do leap into your next phase, but be sure you look before you leap. Use your intuition and your intellect—they’re the partners who will help you make the decisions you’re faced with. Remember to play your cards close to your vest this month.
THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) The pressure you feel to release your hold on the past and let go of your allegiance to the belief systems of others is real and important– do pay heed to it because you’re in the process of discovering the power of your own individual uniqueness. Be more intellectual and less emotional as you make the decisions that will build the framework of your new life.
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) Do you need to be shaken from your complacent, stagnant or stuck perspective in order to accurately perceive what’s going on in the world around you? Now is the time to take a good look at your environment and note its effect on you. As you do so, you’ll notice who is cheering you on as well as who is standing in your light, casting shadows on your hopes and dreams.
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Your ruling planet, Mercury, has finally gone direct after a somewhat harrowing three weeks of retrograde action. You can finally move forward, too, and cease putting your life on hold. Life is waiting for you to notice how much more it has to offer if you do. You’re entering a very prolific time– use it to your advantage and you’ll love the results.
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) When legendary performer, Sammy Davis, Jr., sang “I’ve Gotta Be Me,” he was singing your new theme song. You’ve got powerful permission from the Universe to express yourself, so by all means, explore your dreams and make them come true.
THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) As the Winter season wanes, it’s a great time for soul-searching and being honest with yourself. This is the most empowering course of action for you during the weeks leading up to Spring. The realizations you come to will help you create the kind of movement you want in your life and will bring you the results you’ve been working so hard for.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) As this is the Chinese Year of the Horse, keep your heart and attention focused on your goal. The positive forces of the Universe are partnering with you now, so meet them ‘eye-to-eye’, pay attention to your intuition and be receptive of all of the luck and blessings coming your way.
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) There is a lot of Universal attention focused on you now. Do stay calm and relaxed as you follow your intuition and you’ll discover that your efforts are paying off handsomely. By Summer, you’ll be much clearer about the direction you are taking as you continue to build secure foundations and strong, supportive structures under and around those creative castles in the air you’ve been building.
THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) ) For the next few weeks, the I Ching prophecy, “great good fortune,” is referring to you. Whatever your plans and dreams are, please use this prolific time to take ownership of who you are and the way you want your life to be. And then– be open to receiving as you reap the rewards.
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Upon removing those rose colored glasses, you’re noticing that when one door closes, another one opens. The doors that lead to your outmoded past are beginning to close. Instead of getting emotional about it and trying and keep them open, surrender to these necessary changes and you’ll notice the bright new doors of the future opening wide and beckoning you to walk through.
