Tend to relationships of all types this week. Garden the community network, support work collaborations, nourish friendships and check in on allies as we head into Monday’s full Moon in interpersonally astute Libra, opposed the Sun in direct Aries. Do not take romantic partnerships for granted, give them extra love, consideration, acceptance, and a breath of air. Tend the relationship between social expectation and that Aries-inspires willful raw spark of soul within.

Both the Sun and Mercury now in brash Aries inspire our spring fever and energize our inner adolescent, they can bring rebellion to the oppressed, fuel to a fire, and impulsiveness to us all.

This is also true for some deep, long term problems- old war zones, both personal and political, can inflame as Mars semi-squares Chiron, and there is no point in retrying old solutions which did not work. Try something completely different.
