Mars just wanna have fun (but don't let it yet!)

So here's the supreme contradiction of the astrological crossroads we face right now.

The Spring Equinox happened. The zodiacal wheel started itself anew. The Sun crossed out of watery Pisces and into the Ultimate Fireball Sign of the Galaxy, Aries. And it officially really began BLAZING forward with the New Moon at 2 degrees last Thursday.

However, at the same time, the Aries ruler, lovely Mars himself, is still RETROGRADE.

So what does that all mean? Well, Aries by nature is impatient as hell. It says, "Smash that accelerator to the floor and GO for it!"

But no...no...

Because when the ruler of a sign is retro it means, "Hold back. Impulsive, restless actions can get you into a whole lotta trouble right now. Take a few breaths and allow things to unfold their own way, organically, without pushing or driving."

So you may need to talk yourself or a friend down from a fit of frustration. Divine Order is BIG medicine for innate Aries impatience. The whole system calms down and relaxes as you repeatedly tell it,

"Everything that NEEDS to happen is going to happen in the perfect way at the perfect time. No need to rush, grab or clutch. All is unfolding exactly as is right. Every seeming delay or obstruction is working to allow things to happen on schedule, no matter how it momentarily appears."

And maybe do some stuff to blow off any tension. Forty mile bike rides or breaking bottles at a recycling plant might do the trick! Remember, Mars (just like any of the planets) is not BAD...it's just pure energy, firepower.

And it's an excellent time NOT do the following as appealing as they all may seem in a Moment of Martian Madness

1) impulsively buy that cute little cottage in Corsica (even though you've never been there) that you found on eBay

2) call your ex (or your mother-in-law or boss) in the middle of the night to recite all the ways you've secretly loathed and resented her

3) begin an affair with that seemingly compelling and adorable but married person on the next yoga mat

4) take the last of your life's savings and decide you're moving to a pre-apocalypse bunker in the hills of Wyoming with forty rifles and a crate of kombucha

Lemme put it this way. What seems like a GREAT idea in a fit of Mars (and Mercury!) retrograde derangement may become "What the hell what I THINKING?" as soon as this puppy calms down in April. A few deep breaths can go a looong way right now.

Anyway, we've now entered the final leg of a very strange but productive journey that began when Mars went retro end of January. Only a little bit longer before Mercury goes direct April 4 (opportunely right before the Resurrection at Easter) and Mars direct April 13.

SO EMBRACE THE PREPARATION PERIOD.

Believe me, it has a purpose.

Nothing happens until you're ready.

Even with global warming, the Universe still knows when to bloom.
