Venus and Mars join forces in the sign of Aries this month, a passionate planetary energy that brings about a focus on relationships, romantically and political allies. Jupiter goes retrograde from the 6th in Libra for the first time, any expansion that was promised back last year will be put on hold and the cause of many delays and religious questions. This will be especially prevalent in the UK, as the zodiac sign of Libra is the first house. The USA is still being tested by the transit of Saturn in Sagittarius in the last ten degrees. This is a difficult time for the USA in regard to how they make money and it certainly takes a long hard look at the ‘American dream’. On the 12th the Full Moon is at 22 degrees of Leo, connecting with Uranus in the sky in the degree of injury. The symbolism is clear, rash actions in the governments responses will lead to the innocent getting hurt.
This is quite a month for you ram’s as your ruling planet Mars transits your own zodiac Sun sign. This is a month when being daring and having the courage of your convictions will start to rise up to your consciousness. The trick to handling this energy is to make sure that you listen to your core feelings, and don’t be afraid to push the boundaries, there may be others who are intimidated, but then again this is you at your very best.
Sometimes in life you may want to rest and relax but the world is demanding that you are in the spotlight and you must live up to your responsibilities. The Sun is travelling in the career sector of your chart, while Mars is in the secretive area, watch out for hidden enemies surfacing, they may creep out for a short while to unearth a few of their own home truths, not that you should be worried, it’s their perception of the truth not the reality.
There is an effervescent energy around you this month as Mercury from the 7th moves through Aquarius giving you natural charm and the ability to win others with your outlandish ideas. This is a month when friendships are top of your priority, making new acquaintances and dropping in to see friends from the past for a catch up. Just be aware that Saturn is opposing your Sun, you maybe the life and soul of the party, but you might have to consider the needs of others first.
The energy shifts into a lighter tone for the crabs this month, however any decisions about moving home or changing residence, it might just be good to wait since Jupiter goes retrograde on the 6th till June. The focus for the next four weeks should be career as Mars is transiting in your 10th house; this adds a cutting edge to you and makes you get noticed in the work area of your life.
The emphasis for this month is relationships for the majority of Leo’s as you seek to build firmer foundations when dealing with those close to you. Mars travelling in Aries allows you to be bold with your ideas especially in regard to career matters. On the 22nd there is a full moon in your own sign at 22 degrees a potent symbol of looking at the bigger picture.
The mood shifts rapidly from the ‘good times’ of January to the work orientated February as Mars travels in your solar 6th house. Don’t be put off by being bold in your opinions, this is a month when you can create a new buzz in the career arena that yes is out of step with other people, but then again rules sometimes need to be broken.
The energy shifts into the next gear with Venus and Mars rays shining their light on your solar 7th house, the placement of relationships. Now, this is an area that Libra thrives in, but the planets have other ideas as you will have to be brave with diplomacy, and you guessed it, that’s a contradiction, but that is how this month will play out, going one way and then another not really knowing which way you are going in relationships.
Being impulsive can be good on some occasions, but for the Scorpio’s it might put you one step forward and then two steps back. The planetary energies are stifling and restrictive and therefore you might want to verbally explode, but try and stay grounded, your time will come to vent your anger, just not this month.
Your ruler Jupiter starts going backwards from the 6th and will continue until June, this is a time to make sure you have things in place. Any decisions that you made late last year will have to be reviewed and make sure that they are going to work on a practical level, yes I know it’s about looking at the details , but it is important that you are on firm footing.
Any plans in your career that you started to make in September of last year might have to be reviewed as Jupiter starts going backwards in the sky from the 6th this month. While your home life, due to Mars, needs your attention and decisive action especially towards the end of the month when Jupiter and Mars are in direct opposition with each other, testing times!
The Full Moon on the 11th falls in the relationship area of your chart, emotions that have been locked up in the past suddenly come up to the surface creating little ripples in how you relate to another. The planet Mercury enters your own sign from the 7th increasing your need for intellectual stimulus. The trick is to remain broadminded in your approach during this transit when dealing with the opinions of others, tolerance is a lesson well learnt in February.
Pisces is a sign where finances are just something that comes and goes, you’re not driven by it but you rather like it when your bank balance looks healthy. These next four weeks is about you checking in on your finances and making sure you have enough for that rainy day, because impulsive Mars is travelling in that sector of your chart and it can mean you can be a little bit frivolous with your money this month.
