Micro-Forecast: March 26 to April 1, 2018

Mercury, the planet of communication and commerce, continues in its retrograde motion until mid-April and since it is in the sign of Aries, which can often be impatient and somewhat impulsive, taking an occasional time out is probably a good practice. Stepping away from the order, the contract, the project often provides fresh eyes in which to see what needs doing. Since the energy of Aries is very independent, one of the first hints (again) is to engage others to help you by asking for their assistance. Cardinal energy (Aries, Libra, Capricorn and Cancer) tends to be great at starting projects with loads of energy, but a few good fixed signs thrown into the mix makes for optimum results. Perhaps it costs a bit more to engage help, but in the end, it saves time and energy.

With Venus and Uranus lining up on Wednesday, that assistance may come out of nowhere when you are out and about-just listen and pay attention. Getting things focused, organized and nailed down are wonderful from Thursday going forward at the Sun/Saturn aspect. Know your limits and avoid exhaustion.

The Full Moon on Saturday, March 31, which is also when Passover begins, brings added insight into this newly discovered way of working with others. On Sunday, May 1, Easter, the Sun and Mercury line up in one of their annual alignments — offering new thoughts, innovative ideas, possibly current ideas on how to make an agreement or contract work. Pay attention to those insights regardless of how silly or impractical they may seem. They may be just the right solution.
