Transits To Note
Mar 19 Mercury enters Aries Be very mindful of the impressions you give off, even the very first time assumptions and incomplete judgements are likely. Attention spans are likely to be short, words are likely to be sharp and blunt. If you are looking to learn something new, teach a new subject, or take on a new project work in small steps at a time as focus is likely to he scattered. Watch out for impulsivity due to overthinking!
Mar 20 Sun enters Aries Aries season deals with the first house level of it which calls us to be authentic, take initiative, and pioneer brave new beginnings for ourselves by trusting and moving in our own power.
Mar 23 Pluto enters Aquarius Pluto only changes signs about every 20 years so this is the most important transit of the year. As it changes signs it activates a new part of your chart which shifts the direction or trajectory of your life. In 2023 Pluto will only spend 3 months in Aquarius and this will give you a nice preview into what is to come over this next 20 year cycle. Here we find ourselves fighting for freedom, civil liberty, independence, and authenticity. After the rigidity of Pluto in Capricorn it is time to deconstruct, reinvent, and redirect. This energy forces transformation, and may cause destruction for the sake of detachment and rebuilding. We will see a lot of the negative aspects of technology, AI, and outsourcing will be exposed. Buckle up, the ride will be interesting, but quite bumpy nonetheless. Fixed signs may find profound revelation, and jolting reality checks during this time. Gemini and Libra are likely to feel innovative, empowered, and embolden; Aries and Sags will learn deep lessons and find profound insights under this influence. Take a look at your transits and find out which house Pluto will be illuminating in your chart so you know which area of life will likely be most directly effected. Pluto's greatest strength is shadow integration. You cant run or hide from your shadows so you might as well embrace them.
Mar 25 Mars enters Cancer the key to this transit is being flexible and open to powerful change. During this time you may find yourself steered in a direction that you didn’t think was on your map. Allow I, flow into it, and let the change transform you. Under the influence of this transit we must learn to balance our emotions with our energy, and use our emotion to fuel our drive in a transformative way instead of becoming shut down due to our feelings. We will be innovative, perceptive, protective, nurturing, and sensitive as mars move through cancer. Be mindful not to let passive aggression cause stagnancy or blow ups in your communications.
Apr 3 Mercury enters Taurus Common sense becomes common when Mercury transits Taurus. We are more focused on what's real, what we can see, and what we actually have physical access to or control over. This is a time when we will be more so in tuned with our physical realities and rigid in our thinking and perceptions. The great thing is our focus will be more solid and direct, long term plans are likely to become more clear and complete with vision, communication, and action; and our communications with others are usually pleasurable and purposeful so long as we are in the company of like minds. We may be more stubborn, blunt, and come off as more cold at times which can be the negative side to this transit.
Apr 11 Venus enters Gemini When Venus is in Gemini we are social, creative, and communicative. /We prefer things to be fun, intellectually stimulating, and light hearted in love. During this transit we wish to explore the beauty and bounty of the sensual world with wisdom, diplomacy, and dignity. We begin to understand that depth doesn’t ruin things, it only makes them more beautiful and we become more open to the intellectual intimacy required to enhance and expand our relationships.
Apr 21- May 14 Mercury Retrograde in Taurus will bring us opportunity for financial organization, strategy, and expansion. It will also bring us clarity and connection in business and career. As far as relationships and communications go, we need to go into a reflective mode and really define our worth so that we are not riled up every single time our character is brought int question or we fee triggered. We need to be very mindful of not only what we say, but how we say t, and how ready we are to stand behind it. Being impeccable with your word under this retrograde will be key and as always for retrograde reading I recommend The Four Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz. Gemini and Taurus as well as Libras need to be mindful of the urge to overspend or over indulge in luxury.
