Hello again, Astro & Tarot lover!
You must have noticed the surging energy of the planets currently crowded within the sign of fiery Aries, especially with the passing of this week's new moon in Aries!
Aries is the match that is struck to create an incredible spark of light and heat, revving our engines, and pushing us to make bold moves forward!
Half of you may feel the effect of Aries energy with the floodgates of ideas and momentum while the other half of you may feel agitated or on edge... and this energy can be felt in very specific areas of your life(depending on the placement of your personal planets) but I can definitely see it manifesting in relationships of ALL kinds with Venus (the natural ruler of relationships) moving retrograde through the sign of Aries where is she is feeling weak and agitated.
Also, Aries energy is very self focused- so you may have experienced people or partners be hyper focused on themselves and what they want, without factoring feelings or other people into the occasion. You may find yourself or others stepping all over toes and not even noticing!
On top of that, this week Mercury has buzzing like an angry wasp around Uranus (the planet of disruption) and squaring Pluto (the planet of transformation) causing our minds to erupt with activity, agitation, and maybe even feeling competitive- pushing against rules and needing to rebel! All of this is again, happening within the sign of Aries, fanning the flames even further!
Something I want to bring to your attention is the fact that Mercury will soon be joining Venus in retrograde- both planets will be reversed in their orbit, kicking up dirt and chaos that needs to resurface in our lives... remember, everything happens for a reason!
This week and the middle of the next we'll be the shadow period of Mercury's retrograde cycle so prepare for this by labeling your belongings, planning for tune ups of cars and bikes, watching the messages and emails that you send, and clarifying that you understand someone's point before jumping to conclusions!
I still see relationships being tested this month but its nothing we can't handle... if we're prepared!
This Week's Tarot Cards:
Ace of Wands, Knight of Pentacles
* Bonus: 7 of Wands Reversed!
Whew! Ace of Wands is the spark of passion, activity- something you have definitely been seeing and feeling last week and this week! However, Knight of Pentacles wants you to funnel that energy constructively to build rather than impulsively go pursue what you're after and then later burning out. 7 of Wands warns that the obstacles that you've been staring face to face will begin to back down... but one wrong move (rushing forward too soon & too fast, thoughtfulness, and recklessness, etc.) could come back to take you down. Slow your steps and channel the fire you are feeling wisely!
