Strap on your bungee cord. The ground-shifting is starting that will rock us all by April. Every tilt, lurch, lunge and, ultimately, breakthrough delivers us back to the platform where the year began -- yet also closer to what you’d like to do with it.
Not to mention who you’d like to have on the platform with you, and who you would not. This month tweaks relationships of all kinds. It is calibrating the connection between our hearts and will, between desire and drive, and between two people in many, many, many different circumstances.
The backward journey comes from two planets going retrograde as the month begins: Mars, the ruler of our drive, in the relationship sign of Libra (on the 1st, through May 20) and structure-oriented Saturn in Scorpio, the sign of our deepest connecting (on the 2nd, through July 20). Watch for recent relationship developments to resurface (and possibly old ones, too). Some connections may pick up; some may intensify; some may restructure; some may leave for good.
The calibration process begins with a call to action that will not be ignored. This bursts out of the otherwise gentle atmosphere of the therapeutic and optimism-inducing Pisces New Moon, which launches the month with the promise of wishes finding fulfillment. (Read more in my mooncast.) Ask for what you want. Let your hopes up. If you don’t have a dream, how you gonna have a dream come true? Besides, it just might.
But first, there are words that must be said. Calibrating swells into difficult and necessary messages and conversations mid-month, which then led to improved self-confidence and firmly walking our talk. After a round of analytical, discerning thinking (thank the Virgo Full Moon on the 16th), minds drift into a softer, more forgiving mode when Mercury enters Pisces on the 17th.
Sweetness, compassion, loving hearts and, yea verily, even romance blossom thereafter. What you wished for during the month’s first weekend could well come into actual, tangible, solid being over the last weekend. We’re firming up our traveling parties for next month’s adventures and beyond -- just in time for all concerned to be blasted onto their individual (and likely parallel) courses by the Aries New Moon on the 30th.
That doesn’t spell doom for dreams freshly coming true, or the connections that have picked up or intensified this month. This Moon isn’t separating people who can proceed shoulder to shoulder, come whatever may. Think Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid leaping off that cliff together. Scary. Daring. And landing in new circumstances together.
