There is little you will attempt this month or anytime soon that is not magnificently well supported by the positions of the planets and the story they tell. There is little you will not achieve if you truly set out to do it. Yet at the same time you may be noticing a strange sense of apprehension approaching. It may be the sense that something has run out.
One of the most brilliant talents a person can develop is learning to get out of their own way. Try it. You are a talented, creative person by nature, but you have a little tendency to get hung up on your concepts of what life is supposed to be like, the order things are supposed to happen in, and an attachment to the results you’re expecting.
You are having one opportunity after the next to confront your insecurities. Some of them are rather old, dating back to the neurotic tendencies of your family. Plenty of them relate back to what it was supposed to mean that someone was a boy and someone was a girl; these simple-enough biological facts are the cause of much stress, anxiety and phobias.
With the Venus and the Sun moving through the juiciest romanticest and creativest angle of your solar chart you are probably feeling springtime’s arrival a little early at the same time you’re feeling certain limits on your ability to express yourself. I was going to write “natural limits” but then I was not so sure.
Energy is now pumped in all three of the fire signs. The Sun, Mercury and Venus are in your sign, which is picking up on (and feeding) the energy of all the other fire signs. What that describes is the drive to do beautiful things. Yet there is a wider theme: self-awareness. The world is going through some extreme growing pains right now.
You are walking a fine line emotionally. You’ve been holding back and holding fast for a long time; now you’re feeling the inclination to cut loose. So far you’ve been able to manage that, but you might not be able to contain yourself. Therefore I suggest you plan a safe space to let yourself blow off some steam.
Keep a close eye on financial matters this week, advice which may perhaps seem obvious but is still worth stating out loud. You need, however, to avoid finalizing a certain business arrangement until you’re confident that you’re getting a fair deal. In fact there is no rush, and there appears to be plenty unresolved.
You are definitely on the cusp of a major emotional breakthrough. There are two sides to this, really. One is respecting your limits; another more important one is learning to push them. And you are certainly in the mood to advance your own cause and to break free of the inner limits that you’ve become aware of the past 12 months.
There is a fine line between work and play, but we’re not conditioned to see life that way. This is one of the many places we put up a wall where a tree will do just fine. It would not be an issue had our parents not conditioned us to do what “makes money” and “makes sense” instead of what we feel we need to do.
Life is not really so confusing, particularly if you let the confusion sit for a little while and get a sense of what’s going on inside it. A good few things are sorting themselves out right now; but what’s somehow clicked into place is a more clear idea of who you are. This is partly Saturn at work.
Letter to a friend: I forgive you for being such a bitch. I know you better than to take it personally. Remember, I know what you’ve been through. Of course you know that. What is spiritual anyway if it doesn’t forgive, if it doesn’t remember love and forget random faithless moments that will be forgotten anyway?
Suddenly, you have so many more options — and you’re reaping the financial and emotional rewards of many jobs well done. True, there are always wrinkles and things you need to mend, and it’s a great idea to travel with a little sewing kit and an extra set of batteries. But anticipating a minor challenge or two is not exactly what you would call pessimism.
