ARIES (March 20–April 19) Events this month build toward an unusual unleashing of energy in the professional, career, reputation or mission aspect of your life (however you may think of it). You have the power to initiate ideas that take root quickly, though it would be wise to start only what you think you can sustain. Work with ideas that are sufficiently interesting that you’ll want to stay connected and committed in the long run, and which you value enough to develop even in the face of resistance, challenges or obstacles. This will call for a design scheme, which you could base on nature. One of the ways that humans and, ostensibly, other species are perpetuated is because sex is so appealing. This makes reproduction inevitable. It’s this level of motivation that must be soaked into what you’re doing: drive that is rooted in biology, and that taps into existence with the sensation of insatiable curiosity, and the need to connect. More than the desire to do something, you might let yourself be driven by the need to discover something, using your mind, your senses, your body, and your feelings. While this might feel like throwing your body and soul into what you want, remember that relatively minor adjustments can have a significant influence. Pay attention to what may seem too small to even matter. That’s what might matter most.
TAURUS (April 19–May 20) The story arc of the coming weeks appears to be a gradual moving inward, after a phase of being actively and outwardly involved in the world. You’ll feel better as you incrementally reduce your exposure to the outer world, and pull in for a little while. Yet you’re not there yet. The cluster of planets traversing Pisces through late February and into the first week of March is about being open and available to people—not an intuitive thing to do these days. We live in an era when shutting down is supposedly the answer to everything. But it’s not, and you know it, and so do other sensitive people. A strategy of being closed and unavailable turns life into an excuse for existence. You have strength, self-awareness, and a spiritual connection that many people struggle for, or wish they had. This makes your involvement with those you care about even more meaningful. What you say, and how you respond to events that everyone is struggling to understand, can help keep many people aware. March 3–4 looks like a particularly significant moment when you can do just that. And, at a certain point, you will need to pull in and assess your innermost reality. A new solar year is about to begin, and you’ve learned a lot since your last birthday. Take the time to quietly distill that knowledge.
GEMINI (May 20–June 21) Your ruling planet Mercury turns to retrograde motion just after the equinox, on March 22, lasting through April 15. This occurs in Aries, the most social and extraverted region of your chart. Yet you’ll want to keep some distance between what you say outwardly and what happens within the most intimate spaces of your life. This is not so much about being secretive as it is about giving your relationships space to be themselves, minimizing interference and judgment from your wider environment. It seems as if you’re renegotiating an arrangement within a long-term partnership. It could be strictly business, though this is unlikely—it’s more likely to be an erotic partnership that’s undergoing some change and is not revealing its inner workings easily. It will help if you don’t think of it as a relationship but rather as a discussion between two people’s individual lives. The best approach is to make a commitment to holding space for whatever the other is going through, and whatever needs they may have. This calls for some detachment; but mostly, it’s respect that will get the results. Stand back from the idea that anyone belongs to anyone else, or owes anyone anything, and take up the lives involved as individual experiences. This is a test of faith and of commitment. Hold this space for a while, listen patiently, and what to do next will flow naturally.

CANCER (June 21–July 22) You can do anything you want, as long as you leave out any thoughts of revenge, and don’t treat jealousy as a right. This applies to personal as well as professional situations. I know this isn’t really your style; you’re usually too busy taking care of people to let them bother you too much. I suggest that you keep your focus on more exciting, positive, and productive things—and they’re available to you in an especially bold way. It will help if you defuse tense situations before they get contentious, and do what you can to convert friction into some form of positive energy. Keep making your own decisions, and don’t try to assert your will on others; figure out what they want, or notice what they’re doing, and do your best to go with that. Looking after your own agenda will help rather than hinder, as long as you ensure that you’re good for your basic commitments. If you can do that, you’ll find yourself exploring new possibilities, new goals and some expanded role in the world as Chiron, the planet of healing and awareness, gets ready to enter your 10th house of profession, responsibility, and reputation. A new era of your life is gradually dawning, where you experience more direct recognition not just for what you do but for who you are.
