Mercury, the ruler of the mind, has moved into Aries until April 23rd. You will be thinking fast on your feet, ready for changes as they come. This month is all about change, the unexpected, new horizons, new ideas, new thinking patterns. The Sun is assisting you, so there is a lot of energy here for change. Go with it, don't try to stop it or hold it back. You are laying the foundation for new paths and new ideas on how to get there.
Of course with the new must come endings. Release whatever is leaving your life. Let it float down the river into a new path away from you. All that is ended now has special significance in that it's TIME to let it go. Whatever you have been holding onto, let it go. Old hurts, old patterns, old friends even, old stuff, just let it go.
I read an article once from a psychiatrist who said we cannot manage anymore than 7 people in our life at one time as "real friends". There is just not enough time to nurture true friendships with more than this many people, and for most people its 4-5 real friendships. Now maybe you have "lots" of friends, or so you think, but they are really acquaintances. Take stock of all the people in your life and figure out which ones would come to your house at 3AM if you called them and nurture that friendship. It's time to get real about who you can truly trust, and who you can't. It doesn't mean kick your minor relationships to the curb, it just mean to make the effort to nurture people in your life you can count on.
Endings now are for situations in your life that have become untenable. I recently resigned from a client who essentially tormented me for the last four months. Snarky remarks, talking behind my back, hoping for anything that looked like a mistake, hovering behind me and demanding to know what I am working on in an angry voice. I have watched this person "push" 6 people from their company in the last 18 months. It's their habit to find someone to pick on and be a bully. I found myself dreading going there, being upset the day before and after, and living anxiously waiting for the barbs to come forth - which they did more and more each time I was there. I finally decided that the money was not worth this kind of upset in my life, and I resigned. Within hours of doing so, an anvil lifted off my shoulders. I felt lighter, freer, happier. I was no longer allowing myself to be victimized, and low and behold the one client was replaced by two in three days! When one door closes, another one always opens. Always.
If you have a dead end job, or a boss who bullies, start looking for a new one. It's always easier to get a new job when you have one now. Interview before work, lunch hour, after work. You spend a lot of time at work, and if its dragging you down, its preventing you from being a light worker, from love and kindness and joy filling your heart. Its a terrible way to live your precious life. Change it, especially now while the sun and mercury are in Aries. Nothing could be more empowering now than these two planets helping us all change. Be courageous now and step out of bad situations.
Venus moved into Pisces Saturday until May 2. Its a great time to be mushy and spread the love. Tell the people in your life how much they mean to you. Everyone is feeling the need to be loved more than usual right now. Open up and say loving things to people. It will help build stronger bridges in your life and work.
Mars is still retrograde in Libra. Don't get upset when things don't move as fast as you hoped. Early May the door will open and things will move forward again. Chill a little, and stop trying to push a boulder up the hill. It's wasted energy.
