We are still in Aries season until April 21st (UT – Swiss), so enjoy the carefree sun while it lasts. Once Taurus reigns, it’ll be time to get serious. If you haven’t felt the heat of Mercury RX, then you’re one of the lucky few.
Mercury and Venus
Mercury is still in retrograde. When Mercury in Aries is retrograde, it creates trouble in our reasoning such as unnecessary risks, irrational behavior, and volatile irruptions. Sounds the same? Not really.
We are advised to think before we act. When Mercury is in retrograde, especially in Aries, we are prone to foggy thoughts and ideas. Everything seems to move slower and our perspective of ideas are a little skewed. Some thrive in chaos, but Mercury in Aries only means more destruction and wild fires.
This will last until April 15th. Until then, you are warned to take shelter, lol. Don’t add more fuel to the fire. If it gets intense, then you need to back off and learn to fight another day. Retreating is necessary.
When Venus is in Aries, we find ourselves wanting to revolve our world loved ones (family, friends, or lover(s)), aggressively pursuing someone we want to love, or full on fights with people we just can’t stand. However, Venus shifts into sweet and sensual Taurus on April 1st.
When Venus is in Taurus, we will take love and relationships more seriously. We will also yearn for deeper connections and long-lasting partnerships with ourselves and with others. We are also prone to more possessiveness and stubbornness with our partners or soon to be partners.
During this time (Aries Mercury RX and Aries/Taurus Venus)
Fire signs need to utilize the fire of Aries while they still can. It’ll be a time to get what you want without limitations, fears and/or resistance. Fire signs are more passionate and aggressive but be careful not to step on toes. Burning bridges will backfire on you. When Venus shifts into Taurus, you will discover which bridges you can still cross. Hopefully you didn’t burn too many.
Water signs will have deeper connections, but explosive tempers and irrational thinking will occur. You’re extra sensitive and not in the mood to play games. Water signs will try to distance themselves from the negative vibrations or they’ll shower in the pettiness, lol. When Venus shifts into Taurus, you’ll feel more grounded and will try to repair what is or was lost.
Earth signs hate the noise right now, but it’s giving them a new pep in their step, lol. Meaning, you’re feeling more motivated but you’re also pushing or bullying your way through the crowd. You’re not in the mood to take crap from anybody, and you just want people to stfu and get things done. When Venus shifts into Taurus, you’ll feel more relaxed and people won’t feel like their walking on egg shells around you.
Air signs are the only ones working overtime. You’re either full-time mediators or full-time pranksters under the Mercury RX. Air signs are spreading themselves thin, but at the same time you’re thriving under the pressure. Whatever the case, remember to take a break and protect your energy. You can’t help everyone. When Venus shifts into Taurus, you’ll go back up into the sky where you’ll feel more at ease.
