We can almost celebrate the end of March, and with it comes the beginning of Spring. If you’ve had a similar month to me, then you understand it’s been brutal, but we all have something new to look forward to. Keeping things in perspective can feel challenging at times, especially after a month like this.
Twice a year the Sun aligns to give us equal hours of night and day. Known as the Equinox, this alignment of light and dark energy occurred on March 20th.
The March Equinox is a sacred time as it represents balance and oneness. By having equal hours of day and night, we are reminded of the importance of finding balance and oneness in our own lives.
Every year on the March Equinox, the Sun completes its journey through the 12 zodiac signs and prepares to start all over again with a new year cycle and a fresh set of energy, and is going to kick off a wave of new potential for all of us.
After the Equinox, we encountered Mercury in Retrograde.
During Mercury Retrograde, it is common for old wounds, thoughts, and feelings to rise to the surface in order to be cleared. It is also a time to reflect on the past and to perhaps reach out to people that you have unfinished business with.
Mercury Retrograde is not a time to forge forward with great gusto, in fact under this energy it is much better to move slowly and to think carefully before making new plans and starting new ventures.
Each of us has learned some valuable lessons this past month, and April is going to test us on them. Here is the one sentence you need to hear for the upcoming month, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
“Don’t make irrational decisions when you’re angry or happy; clear your head first before you decide anything.”
Aries, you have a tendency to make abrupt decisions, but you need to remember that consequences last longer than your impulsive moments.
Taurus (April 20th to May 21st)
“Everyone won’t always love you as much as you love them but that doesn’t mean you should stop loving with your whole heart.”
Taurus, if this year has taught you anything, it’s that not all people are going to treat you fairly. You have a big heart, and it would be a shame to let a few crappy people ruin a gift as brilliant as yours. Don’t let them.
Gemini (May 22nd to June 21st)
“Live the life that makes you happy, not the life others expect you to live.”
Gemini, you enjoy the spotlight, and always want to appear at your best. However, by comparing yourself to others, or to your own expectations of what you ‘should’ have, you are taking away pieces of your happiness. Follow your heart, not your eyes.
Cancer (June 22nd to July 22nd)
“Stop blaming other people for your mistakes and problems or your life will never get better.”
Cancer, you have had a few hard lessons this year and one theme remains constant: you need to take responsibility for what happens in your life. Sure, sometimes people can influence things that happen to us, but in the end, it’s up to us to choose how we respond to them.
Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd)
“If the grass is greener on the other side, start watering your side more.”
Leo, you like to live life to the fullest, but sometimes you feel as though you are missing out. Instead of admiring what others have, or what they are doing, make them admire YOU. Take care of yourself, practice self-love, and stay focused on your goals.
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)
“Never prioritize people who only view you as an option.”
Virgo, you have had people walk out your life this year and at first, you thought it was only temporary. now you realize it’s a permanent thing, and it’s actually a blessing. Time away from toxic people has taught you to value yourself more and respect yourself like you deserve.
Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)
“Start to figure out what you love to do, then figure out how to get paid for it.”
Libra, you are a passionate soul who loves adventure. The trick is, how do you make a living doing what you love? Find someone you can confide in, and tell them about your dreams. Who knows, maybe they can help you reach your goals!
Scorpio (October 23rd to November 22nd)
“No one is really concerned about what you’re doing with your life, so just live for you.”
Scorpio, you love being admired and having people who pay attention to your life. The thing is, people are so consumed with their own issues and goings on that they really don’t have time to worry about what you had for dinner, or what your latest routine of supplements consists of. take care of yourself but do it for you- not your audience.
Sagittarius (November 23rd to December 21st)
“Everything is a matter of perspective, it all comes down to how you choose to react to your situation at hand.”
Sagittarius, take a moment to breathe. Yes, people can get on your nerves frequently, especially when they fail to admit their own mistakes, but if you don’t learn how to get your emotions under control you are going to have another rocky year.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 20th)
“In order to get what you want you to have to work for it bad, no more half-assing things, give it everything you’ve got.”
Capricorn, my dear hard-working friend, stop cutting corners when you’re feeling lazy. You know that if you want anything done right, you have to do it yourself. So do it, and stop assuming others are going to have the same work ethic as you.
Aquarius (January 21st to February 18th)
“You need to prioritize the difference between needing and wanting, and accept you can’t always get what you want.”
Aquarius, you love the beautiful things in life but sometimes you can’t always have them. Are you great with budgeting skills? No, not really. And that has put you in a financial pickle this year. Take better care of what you need, and you’ll find you want less.
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)
“Always trust your gut, if something doesn’t feel right then it probably isn’t.”
Pisces, stop doubting yourself. You are the most intuitive sign of the zodiac, yet you constantly doubt your own gift. This year has taught you to listen to yourself, trust your instincts, and follow your heart.
