As the vibrant colors of spring continue to blossom, so does a striking blend of astrological aspects that will influence, well, at the very least, our moves at the first Tea Dance of the season on Friday.
First, a reminder: Mercury retrograde remains in full swing, urging caution in our communications. Don’t be surprised if your signals, whether subtle or loud, don’t work the kind of magic you want them to. At the same time, Mercury’s sextile with disciplined Saturn should set the stage for more harmony overall. So don’t shy away from trying to connect and enjoy the moment.
Maybe you think you’ve danced every dance there is. Don’t be so sure. The Sun conjunct Uranus means this is a time of unexpected opportunities — though some of us may need reminding to actually notice and embrace them (hello stubborn Taurus, planful Virgo, conflict-avoiding Libra, and chaos-averse Aquarius.)
This should, mostly, be a great time to forge new friendships. But as Venus trines Saturn and squares Neptune, they will likely be built on a blend of stability and illusion. To tip the balance toward the real and build relationships more likely to last, you’ll need to stay in touch with your deep desires and express yourself freely. Let the music move you.
March 21 – April 19
Expect a sense of harmony and growth in your relationships. Just be careful not to overextend yourself.
April 20 – May 20
New opportunities may be coming your way. But be patient or you could lose out because of misunderstandings or confusion.
May 21 – June 20
Are tensions in your relationships getting you down? Open communication is a good thing, but you still need to think before you speak.
June 21 – July 22
When it comes to confronting challenges, try expressing your thoughts and emotions with as much creativity as you can muster.
July 23 – Aug. 22
Your steady determination will get you through the tough stuff, Leo. Knowing that, can you be open to change? Expect the unexpected.
Aug. 23 – Sept. 22
Finally, practice clarity in your communications, despite this Mercury retrograde. Speaking of clarity, brace yourself: hidden issues in your relationships may come to light.
Sept. 23 – Oct. 22
You’re all about balance and stability, which sometimes holds you back. But right now it’s going to help you grow in your relationships, if you let it.
Oct. 23 – Nov. 21
You may be feeling extra confrontational. Don’t fight things just because they’re new. Now’s the time to embrace innovation and unusual opportunities.
Nov. 22 – Dec. 21
What’s holding you back? Put one foot in front of the other — just try not to put it in your mouth. Mercury may still make for some messy miscommunication.
Dec. 22 – Jan. 19
Go ahead and come out with those fresh new ideas, at least around the people you love. You’ll be feeling support and stability in your committed relationships.
Jan. 20 – Feb. 18
Hidden issues will come into view in your relationships. Don’t be afraid — instead embrace what you learn and see where that leads you. Slow and steady.
Feb. 19 – March 20
Financial and career goals require your time and attention this week. Channel your creative energy into something tangible.
