This Monday, February 27 combative Mars and combustible Uranus team up in Aries and your seventh house of partnerships. Frustration that’s been simmering below the surface could bubble over like molten lava. Who knew you were THAT ticked off? That’s the downside of trying to sidestep conflict. Smoothing over problems will only make them come back with greater fierceness, until you invariably explode. (Spoiler alert, I exploded) Maybe you haven’t gotten to that point yet (here’s hoping). Nevertheless, the Mars-Uranus duo is here to liberate you from paralyzing politeness and give voice to the things that desperately need improvement. Apply this to all your relations: romantic, business, family, creative collaborations. Depending on where you read on the rage-o-meter, it might be best to source a levelheaded third party for your initial venting. From the bedroom to the boardroom to band practice, there’s some “clearing of the air” to do, but this is never best done when smoke is pouring out of your ears. And with “speak first, think later” Jupiter in Libra (and retrograde at that) sitting directly across the table from Mars and Uranus all week, you could wind up with a wedge-heeled bootie in your mouth. Fume to your therapist (or surrogate therapist friend) until you get clear about what is bugging you. Once you’ve distilled the problem, sit with your feelings for a bit. Make sure you’re in a proactive headspace before you set up a tete-a-tete with the offending party. You’ll know you’re there when you can calmly spell out what’s not working and deliver a few creative solutions for better cooperation. Fortunately, on Sunday sensible Saturn makes a positive connection to Mars and cooler heads will prevail.
Can’t get yourself to that state of serenity? It may be time to spring free from an unfulfilling union.(XF??) One of the benefits of the Mars-Uranus merger is that these planets make you one lusty and liberated Libra. If you’re “free to explore,” this could be a week for your future romantic memoirs (or maybe your locked diary). Book yourself a “breakover” day at the salon (umm Saturday already booked my salon appointment a month ago!) and see who pops up on Tinder while you’re sitting under the dryer, randomly swiping. Partnered Libras don’t have to miss out on the fun. You’ll have the courage to play out one of those naughtier fantasies this week or at least turn them into some hella spicy pillow talk.
Another prompt to clean up the past comes on Saturday when your ruling planet Venus pivots into retrograde until April 15. This U-Turn happens every 18 months—a time to do some relationship reckoning and to get all your connections back into balance. You’ll feel that urge double strength until April 2, as Venus retreats through Aries and your seventh house of partnerships. If the Mars-Uranus merger didn’t excavate buried issues, Venus’ backspin will. An ex could return with unfinished business (Nate?)—even the second chance you’ve been hoping for. But be careful about opening those doors, Libra, since Venus’ backspin can muddle your better judgment. (Yeah, gonna pass on him)
From April 2 to 15, Venus drifts back into Pisces and your sixth house of work and wellness. If you abandoned your self-care rituals, it’s time to weave them back in to your schedule. Managing relationships at work—and your time—will be essential to this process. No, Libra, you won’t make it to 6PM Pilates if you allow coworkers to bend your ear about their boyfriends or keep Facebook notifications on while you’re trying to get through your assignments! Monotask instead of multitask—and be crystal clear with colleagues that you need to reserve personal talks for happy hour. (No one gets in the way of me and gym so don't worry world, I'm not gonna wake up fat anytime soon)
Also, my monthly horoscope said....
Libras may feel this Venus-retrograde cycle more than most signs, because until April 2, the love planet will reverse through Aries and your seventh house of relationships. With hot-blooded Mars also in Aries until March 9, it’s intensified even more. An ex could resurface, declaring you the “one that got away.” Or you might be tempted to trek down Memory Lane, romanticizing a past paramour. Remember that nostalgia is a lovely eraser, so before you elevate an old flame to superhuman status, spend legit time together. Post-midnight chat sessions with a glass of wine aren’t exactly accurate barometers.
March 12 - Let it go, Libra. Whether that’s a longstanding resentment or a connection that's exceeded its expiration date, clinging to the past is futile. (XF???) The year’s only full moon in your twelfth house of surrender helps you release a situation to the universe. Let the divine forces transmute any pain into healing, instead of trying to force an outcome.
Should be quite a month....I am so ready.
