Action planet Mars enters your sign of Sagittarius on the 6th indicating that you’re in for a super-charged month.
Mars is the planet of passion and anger and it’s time to channel your emotions into personal matters, things that mean a lot to you.
Sagittarius rules your personal goals and aims and also your physical body. Mars in Sagittarius is great for fitness, being active and growing healthy and strong. This activates your inner warrior and being a Sagittarius you’re often principled. You believe in truth and this month is ideal if you want to fight injustice in any shape or form.
Mars in your sign is a welcome antidote to Saturn in Sagittarius. Saturn is the taskmaster of the heavens and Saturn’s nature is slow. In fact, it can slam the brakes on and halt you in your tracks. Mars adds energy and ambition so you’re able to push through any obstacles and break down roadblocks in your path. It’s a tough energy though so take care that you don’t get carried away and go over in the top in your desire to make things happen.
Your love life is under the cosmic spotlight this month too especially new love or a new attitude to a relationship or marriage. The first week of the month is perfect for finding agreement with a lover or partner. Love planet Venus is in Aquarius, the sign which rules communication in your chart, and it’s easy to talk logically, set new guidelines in place and deal with relationships fairly.
This is different to what happens later in the month once the Sun enters Aries and your romance sector on the 20th. This is the date of the spring equinox (fall equinox in the southern hemisphere) and this is a passionate planet/sign combination. You won’t let anything stop you now if there’s something you want. This might indicate a person or a new way of living.
Either way, this is packed full of desire and passion and when the lunar eclipse takes place on the 23rd cutting across the Aries/Libra axis of your chart, anything goes. Eclipses bring what’s hidden to light, they’re closely linked to twists of fate and especially the lunar or full moon eclipse can flag up a triangle situation.
If you’re caught between two lovers or there’s a third party in your relationship, the eclipse will coincide with dramatic events. Often at an eclipse one person wins and another person loses and it looks as if you’re in the driving seat. Stunning stars over the Easter weekend (25th-28th) are brilliant for full-on action and chasing after your desires.
In addition, the planet Saturn turns retrograde on Good Friday and when a planet is retrograde its influence is said to be weakened. Saturn remains on go slow until mid-August 2016 so this feels easier for you, as if a weight is lifted. There’s less pressure on you and more room for manoeuvre.
Career matters aren’t foreground this month and yet there’s a stunning planetary aspect which indicates that things can go your way when it comes to work and money. This involves your ruling planet Jupiter which is currently in the earth sign Virgo and your career sector. Jupiter teams up in a stunning planetary aspect with Pluto in Capricorn and your money sector on the 16th.
Together these two planets spell big power and they often indicate hidden riches or wealth. This is the middle aspect of a pattern of three. The first took place on October 11th 2015 and the third takes place on June 26th 2016. This whole period is promising for career prospects and the bigger your vision, the more you can achieve.
Earth signs are disciplined and steady so you have to put in the work to reap your rewards. Yet Jupiter is the planet of good fortune and this indicates that a little bit of luck is coming your way.
There is also another major planetary aspect which can throw a spanner in the works. This is when Jupiter moves on to square Saturn in your sign of Sagittarius on the 23rd, the day of the lunar eclipse. This might be your own fear or doubt that holds you back or an issue in your personal life which makes it harder for you to pursue career goals.
It is important to be realistic about your current situation but that shouldn’t stop you pursuing a new path, bigger goals. You deserve the best so keep your eye on the future and take one step at a time to reach your chosen destination.
The other major planetary influence this month concerns the sign of Pisces down at the base of your chart. There are a host of planetary bodies in this sector of your chart ruling your home and family, your past and where you come from. This feels emotional, sensitive, compassionate whether you’re taking a trip down memory lane or personal issues mean a lot to you now.
The solar eclipse on the 9th also falls in Pisces so look out for endings and new beginnings around this date. This might concern your home and where your live or your family situation. Sometimes eclipses throw up events that you didn’t expect and it’s wise to wait a few days after an eclipse before making any important decision.
There’s a watery feel to your home and family situation and water rules emotions. You might literally be considering a life on the waves or want to move closer to water. Allow yourself to feel deeply when it comes to your roots, your past, your ancestry. There’s a deep well of emotion waiting to pour forth.
If you’re letting go of someone or something connected to your past, do so consciously. If you’ve been let down or disappointed, another reason to let go and move on.
