For the week of March 29th thru April 5th, be sure to read your Rising Sign as well:
Your ruling planet, Mars, enters Gemini this week which could open up a whole new can of worms, while also bringing a welcome surge of energy. From a positive standpoint, much of the lethargy and stalling associated with the previous month is finally dissipating. You may even experience a surge of anticipation for things to come. Be prepared to be doing a lot of running around over the next month. Positive attitudes will reap positive rewards with this one. Just be cautious with your words, and how you express them. Mars in Gemini can be treacherous in that way. But there is a larger story here as well, and that has to do with your larger goals and ambitions, both for yourself personally and in the world at large. You may feel as if you are being faced with extraordinary challenges. And that you are going to have to go it alone. You probably will. But if anyone can take on a daunting challenge, it’s Aries. You’ve got this.
A shift in perspective can open up a myriad of possibilities. A change is due. And as a result of recent events it will soon become apparent where your true path lies. In some way you are being asked to be a more authentic version of yourself, and the signs and omens are going to be leading you to accomplish just that task. And in some way you are also being asked to grow in ways that you might not have thought possible. In more ways than one. But even before you get there, you are also being pushed back on yourself to explore your core beliefs. It may be that everything that you previously were led to believe is being challenged in some way. It could become apparent that if you are going to have to defend what you believe to be true, that you are going to have to back up those beliefs with something substantial. If you dare to expand your view of the world, you will first need to release nay old outworn limiting ideas that no longer serve you. However, if you do so, you will never be able to see things quite the same way again.
This has been a particularly draining Mercury retrograde period. Now that Mercury is direct again you should now be able to create some sort of plan going forward. It will be all the more so after next week’s New Moon. But at least now you are beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Especially after mid-week. And with Mars now entering your sign this weekend, it is like a large sign post giving you the go-ahead to take action on initiatives that you’ve been working on behind the scenes. As a result you can expect a lot more activity through the middle of May. But perhaps one of the bigger stories for the upcoming quarter has to do with the willingness to face big challenges that could ultimately change your life in some significant way. This includes taking on even the most daunting of tasks. In light of this, think of those things in your life that are worth investing all of your energy and resources.
Now that Mercury is direct again, you should begin to make headway with projects related to publishing, travel or education. You will also be the better able to come to terms with personal beliefs and values, as Neptune traveling in Pisces has had you asking and speculating on these issues lately any way. But there are other things lurking around in the background of your life as well, primarily having to do with relationships, particularly those close relationships and partnerships that you rely on to be there for you. Recognize that in order to make a new beginning some things may first need to end. Old wounds are asking to be healed, and a lot of purification needs to take place in order to allow new and better seeds of commitment and trust to take root. Once you work through whatever it is you are needing to, deeper and more reliable commitments can then be made.
You may not be totally out of the woods when it comes to sorting out any lingering confusion concerning shared finances, taxes, debts or loans. However, you should begin to finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. On another note, this whole Mercury/Neptune thing can be incredibly useful for any scrying, spiritual or intuitive work. And as dismal and annoying as the Mercury retrograde phase has been, where you may want to place your focus going forward is either in your work and daily routines, or those things that promote your health and well-being. There may be days when you may feel as if you’re damned if you do and damned if you don’t. However it is with persistent and devoted efforts towards the achievement of your goals that success will ultimately be achieved. Place your focus on rebuilding, strengthening, self-mastery and self-control, placing one foot in front of the other. The rest will follow.
Your ruling planet, Mercury, has finally stationed direct, and it is none too soon. However you aren’t totally out of the woods, or should we say, the fog, yet. There is still some sorting out to do, especially where it concerns partners and close relationships, especially those that you rely on to be there for you. Nonetheless you should begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel by mid-week, when increasing clarification will allow you to once again make sense of the insensible. One of the questions that Virgo is being asked to consider, is how much you enjoy what you are doing, and whether what you are doing is bringing you joy? There is a deeper calling here, one that is asking you to dig deep and be honest with yourself as to what would actually make your life more meaningful and fulfilled. And if that means having to cut out certain things in order to make room for those things and/or people that truly matter to you, then so it will be.
Not only will you find that you will now be able to proceed with plans and ideas about your work, your life and your daily routines, you might just get some creative insight about better ways of doing so. You may not wish to establish new routines or initiatives until after the New Moon on the 5th, but it will already begin to feel like you are more alert and awake and aware of what you need to do to accomplish your goals. Things are going to be changing in some of the most fundamental areas of your life. And if something is ending, it’s to make room to build something that is much more stable and sustainable. The key here is to make yourself so strong, that nothing will faze you. Look to the foundations of your life: your home, your community, your family, your roots, to ground and support you in ways that cannot be compromised.
Your ruling planet Mars is changing signs this weekend, bringing you along for the ride. As a result you may find that you are less laid back, and less resistant to change. There may be a certain restlessness that comes with this shift that has you willing to explore and research other possibilities of support going forward. But perhaps one of the most important themes for the next quarter has to do with this overwhelming feeling that in some way your life is going to be changing, perhaps in dramatic ways. But in order for that change to occur, there is also the realization that something will first need to be brought to closure. And that won’t necessarily be easy to do. This is because even though there is this feeling of inevitability, and even a desire for change, there is also the attachment to the way things were. But even small changes, can have large ramifications in this weather.
It may seem that things are finally going to be moving forward in your personal life in such a way, that you can now proceed with plans that had previously been put on the back burner. The circumstances that prevented you from moving forward are fading away, and it will certainly seem by the middle of next week that you can now set firmer plans, and see the light at the end of the tunnel. We’re making progress over here. The only conflict over the next few months is trying to get others to agree with future plans. But perhaps the most important story moving into the next quarter of the year has to do with making the most of your resources and investments. Things to consider going forward may have to do with things like confronting your spending habits; and investing your valuable time and resources in those initiatives that are bound to bring you the most benefit in the long run. It’s time to think long-term and strategically.
We are all heaving a sigh of relief now that Mercury is finally out of its retrograde phase. This doesn’t mean that we are totally out of the woods yet, but it will allow you to feel like you are finally getting your mind back. And in due time you will also regain your powers of focus, determination and concentration that Capricorn is so well known for. If you have been too distracted to take care of business, you may find that it will be easier to do so as the week progresses. But speaking of focus and determination. Many a Capricorn is faced with the awesome task of redefining, rebuilding and transforming their lives. Some sort of new beginning is starting to take hold. But in order to fully do so, there is also the recognition that you are needing to release those things, people, habits and circumstances that you have outgrown, and are no longer valid for the person you are becoming. Dare to aspire to reach your highest potential, and you will indeed become a force to be reckoned with.
Now that Mercury is finally out of its retrograde phase, you may be able to make more sense of circumstances surrounding a financial matter, or something concerning your self-worth and earning power going forward. For the past several weeks, everything was feeling rather muddled, but now clarity will gradually begin to return again, allowing you to create some sort of financial plan going forward. This may be exasperated by the fact that many an Aquarius is feeling as if they are in some sort of holding pattern. You get the feeling that a new beginning is on the horizon, but in order to get there, there are a lot of other loose ends and circumstances that need to be taken care of first. And with that comes a willingness to be able to let go of circumstances, people and even ideas about who you think you are, in order to be able to move forward. It is time to be honest with yourself. Ask yourself, what are those things in your life that you have outgrown, and are no longer valid for the person you are aspiring to be.
Mercury has finally stationed direct, and even though we are not quite out of the woods yet, you will find that you will be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. It will soon be okay again to make plans without watching them disappear into the ether like so much smoke. And even more surprising is that things are going to begin to make sense again. For the duration of the past month you have been mulling over so many important ideas and things that you really wanted to say. Well now is your opportunity to say them. But there is more here. In the grander scheme of things you realize that you have accomplished quite a bit. The next question on the agenda, is what do you want to do with all of that experience and knowledge. Over the year ahead, you may see some acquaintances and associations falling by the wayside, while others will soon be established. If that is the case, this is because you are outgrowing your former circumstances and scoping out more fertile territory.
