Today’s Oracle takes us to the Cancer weekly for April 16, 1999.
Beware of all appearances, especially the one that says you are going too slowly or even backward. A combination of factors is creating the illusion of delay, frustration and even a strange kind of retrograde motion (your mentor the Moon never goes retrograde, but in its current and very temporary “slow” phase, it can surely seem that way). In fact, current aspects are very likely to support your aspirations, but only if you make the necessary choices to support them as well. Mars retrograde in your sympathetic water sign Scorpio reminds you to trust your deepest creative instincts. Critics, bizguys, professors, pop, mop and the crew swell with opinions, but in the end, it’s the artist who makes the art in an independent act of self-creation. Right around now. Eh?
