Supporting what is already showing a strong life force, six planets in Aries (Sun, Venus, Mercury, Chiron, Ceres, and Eris) keeps the fire well stoked for the first half of April.

Ceres, a seeding archetype, entered Aries on February 20 (the same day Mercury finished retrograde). Continuing in this sign until May 8, it is an appropriate transit for the start of the spring season. There’s plenty of fresh potential on the horizon, especially in the last 10 days of the month. Mars enters Gemini on March 3. Extending to April 23, one way or another watch for this energizing and mobilizing Mars transit to get you/get it moving. 

As of the month start, Mercury is just two days into its three-week retrograde cycle. As is typical for the cycle, expect revisits, backtracks, sidetracks, surprise repairs or expenses, and the out of the blue. Mercury in Aquarius keeps social and political matters on shake, not stir. A trend/the action could show good vitality, but it could be short-lived. Ride the wave while it’s looking good but don’t bank the long term. That’s not to say there’s no chance for future prosperity but simply that there are no real guarantees. The transit is good for a rethink or regroup and for finding unique solutions.

2021 opens with Jupiter and Saturn at the start of their tours in Aquarius. Jupiter visits the sign every 12 years, Saturn every 30. On the winter solstice (Dec 21, 2020) Jupiter formed a conjunction with Saturn. This meeting launched the start of a new twenty-year cycle of social/cultural, and economic growth. Jupiter/Saturn are also at the start of a new 200-year cycle, which is part of an even larger (800-year) cycle. Additionally, Jupiter/Saturn are synchronizing to the much bigger clock, that of a coming new world age. Sounds like a big deal, you say? It is.

Yes, it is time to look ahead. Mercury in Sagittarius, December 1 to 20, sets the holidays and more into a fuller swing. This Mercury transit increases the search for better answers, opportunities, profits, results, and gratification. On the final stretch of a six-month tour of Aries, Mars the action planet, is also on a punched-up initiative.

Mercury in Libra ends retrograde on the morning of the USA election day (Nov 3). Nov 1 to Nov 6, Mercury is engaged with Saturn by square aspect. This transit underscores the weightiness of decisions and the consequences they will carry. Judging by the record pre-voting, the public seems to have already read the memo. Mercury in Libra suggests the results could go either way, but the fact that Mercury ends retrograde on election and is in a restructuring phase with Saturn bodes well for a change of leadership.

October opens and ends on a full moon. Mars continues in retrograde while Mercury begins retrograde -and there’s more. Here is the run down:

The month ahead hosts Venus retrograde, 2 eclipses, Mercury retrograde, and the start of a six-month transit of Mars in Aries. Here’s the run down:

The Personal Planets: Mercury, Venus, Mars:
The personal planets are on the move this month. Mercury is fresh out of retrograde but continues in Pisces to April 16. There is more clearing away to do, but as of April 2 Mercury moves on a new wave-length with Neptune, this regarding the soundscapes of the collective and also of your individual soul. Consider it also as a fresh fishing expedition for that which has alluded clarity so far, for the ultimate answer, solution or opportunity
