That said, it’s also a good week right now to take things step by step. Because while communications magnet Mercury ended its retrograde phase on March 1 (which will help improve our relationships), Mars turned retrograde at the weekend, and Saturn also turned retrograde on Monday, and these two planets are just as influential as Mercury, especially regarding our energy levels and ability to get things done.
When a planet is retrograde, we may feel that our efforts are hindered, or simply that we must revise and reconsider our future with more in-depth knowledge and commitment. And, depending on our own astro charts, we may experience particularly significant events on the day a planet changes direction, so this week could bring significant developments for many of us (if it hasn’t already), simply because of the planets involved.
And, with Mars and Saturn retrograde for the next few months, it’s certainly in our interests to pick and choose our paths with more care than usual.
The good news remains though that, with Jupiter, the planet which governs our approach to happiness and abundance, turning forwards after several months backtracking, we’re likely to appreciate who – and what – we have in life so much more, effectively enabling us to enjoy life that little bit more.
Suffice to say, four planets changing apparent direction plus a New Moon – all in one week – could bring about all kinds of energy surges – and also energy depletion, so it’s worthwhile taking things a little easier on ourselves and each other this week.
And with super-care and attention to both the details and the bigger picture, you may find that your dreams are so much easier to fulfil, especially with joyful Jupiter back on track later this week. Good luck x
