It’s Aries season and the sun is out to welcome us into spring! This season brings us promises of a fresh beginning and healing from the harsh cold that winter has left in us. Mercury, planet of communication, has rotated into Aries which can be a hot-headed and confrontational sign in this planet. These next couple weeks things might not go as planned and the sunny weather won’t save everyone from the past. However, a fresh start is offered and with it opportunities to grow.
For fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) this is a good time to get focused and be driven in whatever you are doing. For Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) this is a time to develop new patterns that feel good and healthy for you. For Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) this is the time to make new connections and remain optimistic about your future. For Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) this is the season to heal from the emotional brutalities of the past, and make way for a sunnier future.
ARIES: This is your season, Aries, it’s your time to shine! You might find things are falling into place, you have a fresh start, the sun is out for your first week of classes and it seems that you’re on top of the world. However, stay careful, don’t let all the good stuff make you forget about certain responsibilities and obligations you still have. Bask in your glory, but remember to stay grounded.
TAURUS: Springtime is here and you’re stretching your limbs and ready to wake from your winter slumber. It’ been a rough winter for you, Taurus. Things are starting to look more hopeful for you. Take opportunities and accept all the new things coming your way, change is always scary at first, but it’s so necessary and important.
GEMINI: New classes, new people, and new opportunities are all around! This is your forte, you are good at making new friends and new connections. It’s also good to keep in mind what your purpose is. Don’t accept every single opportunity just because you can, accept people and connections into your life that you feel will enrich you and make your life better. Try narrowing things down to what you feel is most important so you don’t get overwhelmed by all the new-ness.
CANCER: Change seems to be in the air, but what’s on your mind is old pain. You take your time to process change and that’s healthy for you, but be open this season to optimism. Open your heart to something new this season and you’ll see that you are stronger than you realize.
LEO: You’re always known to run right into new opportunities, being the fiery force you are. However, you’ve been contemplating your inner emotions and getting in touch with what’s inside. There’s more to you than an outgoing exterior. Focus on communication, and letting others know what’s going on in your mind.
VIRGO: Your interpersonal relationships may have been challenged recently, maybe a falling out with a friend or a breakup came up in the recent past. This is your time to stay focused and do what you do best; ground yourself. New changes are happening all around so focus on some inward emotional changes while keeping your external life grounded and organized.
LIBRA: The recent lunar eclipse in your sign has got you more in touch with your emotions. You have a lot more on your plate to process than you originally thought. This season try facing your past pain rather than ignoring it. Maybe the change you need is to focus on your inward self rather than your external self.
SCORPIO: You have always been deeply in touch with your emotional self. You’ve been desperate for some sort of outlet. This season get involved with something that allows you to process your pain in a creative way. Make a zine! Or take aerial lessons! Do something that allows your emotions to get out of your head and into the world in a beautiful way
SAGITTARIUS: This springtime season has your feet itching to hit the road or just get out of olympia in any way you can. It’s hard to stay grounded when your head’s in the clouds, but you need some focus and direction. Make a plan, or just get a planner and use your energy in a way that’s productive for you.
CAPRICORN: You’ve been a busy bee and this quarter is looking no different. Rather than getting involved with more groups, try nurturing the current things you’re involved with. Give more time and attention to what is already around you rather than making your load even heavier. You can work well under pressure, but this spring try making sure that you don’t have too much pressure to work under in the first place!
AQUARIUS: You’ve been making changes in your life and now is the time to bask in the benefits of those changes! You give so much of yourself to your friends and your social circle, and now it seems that you’re giving some love to yourself. These next few weeks stay relaxed, stay focused, and stay sure of your decisions, you know what’s best for you.
PISCES: It felt like Pisces season would never end, you were up to your nose in emotional depth and now the spotlight is on another sign and you can ease up. Put your thoughts into action these next couple weeks. Do something about all the feelings you have inside of you, learn to let some things go so you can make way for something new. You’ve done so much emotional work, now is the time to play in the sun.
