Now the pace picks up as the element of water gives way to that of fire; Venus, Mercury, Mars and Uranus all occupy fire signs now and this sets the tone for decisive action as well as some surprises that come out of nowhere. Where water tends to be reflective, mysterious and somewhat vague, fire is right there, bright and visible from a distance. As we approach the vernal equinox and the true spring, we’re called upon to dry out the damp corners of our minds and hearts and get ready to roll. This shift in energy is also reflected on the world stage due to the Mars/Uranus buildup; Mars in Sagittarius insists on camaraderie while mighty Uranus is ready to throw bolts of lightning to quicken any action taken and throw some chaos into the mix. The upside of this is creative thinking, the downside is careless words and actions that prompt angry reactions.
Fire signs will benefit from the current trend, with air signs coming in at a close second. These are the negotiators and action oriented folk who are ready to move forward with plans that have formerly been rumors or mere mentions. What was previously hidden will now be revealed and opportunities will arise for those actively searching for them.
A pivotal week for us all as we come out of the winter doldrums and feel the new growth of spring pulsing in our veins; time to pick up the pace and get organized! Be careful out there and keep looking after each other. Lend a hand where you can, when you can. Be kind but know when to stand up for yourself.
