It’s triple threat time! Thanks to Venus, Mercury, and Mars, this week’s horoscope is one to remember. Now that the Sun is in individualist Aries which gives us the solar power to reimagine our identities, this week’s triple transits will help us relate differently with Venus’ influence, think/speak thanks to Mercury moving direct, and assert/sexualize with Mars more intellectually in the weeks ahead.
Up first is the Love Goddess Venus entering Pisces on Tuesday until April 20th. More traditional schools of astrological thought consider Venus dignified in Pisces meaning Venus’ gifts of relationship, harmony, values, love, and compassion are amplified while it transits in the Pisces’ oceans. I can see why. What I appreciate most about Ester Perel’s work into relationships is how she locates the fall of theology and religion in Western culture as the incubator for the unhealthy consumption of romantic love. In other words, we look to our partners for divine transcendence; to be our God. This sets us up for failure because others are just as imperfect, flawed, traumatized, and heartbroken as so can they ever be the divine for us? Not in my book.
With Pisces being the sign most attributed to high-minded spirituality, consider how you uplevel your spiritual practice on the personal level so you can experience your relationships as spiritual experiences. Rather than leaning on the ego’s adrenaline and appetite to receive.
Mercury retrograde in Pisces finally ends on Thursday! Be mindful of the post retrograde tremors or the shadow period until April 15. Though rest assured, the worst is behind you! So long as you maintain a deep reflection on the ideas and experiences you’ve integrated and assimilated into your thinking since Mercury turned retrograde on March 6. Now that Mercury’s let us digest past ideas, we can begin to experience new ones in the weeks ahead.
On Sunday, Mars enters the most communicative sign Gemini until May 15th which will help us reframe our verbal skills and Mars in Gemini will inspire us to explore, discover, learn, and flex our adaptability muscles in wonderful ways. If you’re trying to uplevel your communication skills, this Mars transit could motivate you to wrap the right words around the experiences, feelings, and thoughts you have. It could also help us declare and maintain boundaries in the most righteous ways.
