Springtime slackers, this is your wakeup call! This Wednesday, March 25 the energizing Sun forms a flowing and productive trine (60 degree angle) to stabilizing Saturn. We can’t bring our dreams to life by sheer will alone. Action and a solid plan are required to meet the universe halfway. Both the Sun and Saturn are parked in fire signs now—Aries and Sagittarius, respectively. The fire element is all about passion, heat and creativity. Ooh la la! Don’t waste your time on a mission if it doesn’t light you up. We might need some bigger tools to bring this week’s visions to life—and some heavy-hitters who can open the right doors. Speaking with optimism, confidence and enthusiasm is as essential as having a solid game plan in place to back up our words. Roll up your sleeves and go all in. As Albert Einstein once said, “Only one who devotes himself to a cause with his whole strength and soul can be a true master. For this reason mastery demands all of a person.”
On Friday, loveplanet Venus in traditional Taurus forms a challenging square (90 degree angle) to flamboyant Jupiter in Leo. As such, Cupid’s signals could get a little bit scrambled in the latter part of the week. We could make impossible demands of our partners—or get carried away with giving and accidentally freak people out with the pressure. There will be added incentive to talk about the long-game with our loves, but who’s timeline ARE we following anyway? Remember this: when you compare, you despair. Just because your three BFFs are engaged, for example, doesn’t mean it’s your time to trek down the aisle. Don’t accelerate a relationship because you want to keep up with your crew. With both Venus and Jupiter parked in the luxe-loving signs of Taurus and Leo, our appetites for life’s finer things could spiral out of control. Diamonds may indeed be a girl’s best friend, but if purchasing that bauble (or other high end treasure) means going into debt, it would be wiser to gaze longingly at the window display of Van Cleef and Arpels than to stroll out of the store, dipped in ice.
Saturday’s quarter moon in Cancer brings some balance to our personal lives. Slow down and pay attention to your feelings. Cultivating greater emotional intelligence means that you acknowledge that your inner reality is as important as what’s happening outside of yourself. That said, you don’t want to veer to the opposite extreme and react to every whim that comes up. If you’ve been a little too emo lately, this quarter moon brings a helpful reality check. Since Cancer is the sign that governs the feminine and the family, leaning on supportive women and relatives can help restore inner equilibrium.
