Mercury’s retrograde journey through your sign is teaching you to ask certain questions about who you really are, and what you’re truly capable of accomplishing. This may cause you some discomfort at first, especially if it unsettles some well-laid plans or some image of yourself as more limited than you really are.
You are gradually becoming liberated from restrictive notions about who you are, and who you can become. Others cannot dictate your identity or character; it is for you alone to decide. And you are complex; were it possible to sum up a whole human being in one sentence, I suspect our brains would be a lot smaller, for one thing; and for another we would not alter nearly so much.
Tuesday, your two planetary rulers Mars and Pluto will meet in a square. You’re likely to experience this as a moment of clarity or cohesion, somewhat as if a fog has lifted from your mind. Certain experiences from recent months may suddenly make much more sense, accompanied by a feeling that you can at last move forward.
Mercury retrograde in your own sign appears to offer a chance for you to break some real ground regarding your perception of yourself. You may be able to review elements of your history and character in a new light, and potentially from other perspectives, as if you’d accidentally overheard a conversation about you.
This week’s Aries Full Moon is likely to enhance your glamour and your inherent charm. You’ll sparkle in the social realm, and probably have more influence than usual with loved ones also. Enjoy the fun; just take care to keep it real, and to value honesty as an irreplaceable component in everything you say and do.
Though the world might not yet observe the difference, within yourself you’ve come a long way in the past month. Your next step is to make those gains manifest in the external world, and build on them. This will first require you to cement your understanding of what has taken place: what you’ve discovered about yourself, and what it all means to you.
As we build toward an interesting Full Moon in your opposite sign, with your own still playing host to all the inner planets, you may benefit this week from remembering just how far your capabilities stretch. If you tend to need frequent confidence boosts, or if you’re in a situation where you feel lacking in power, it can be much more difficult to see just how influential you are.
