Welcome to Spring! Your hibernation period has officially begun. Have a good nap… Say what?!
This is no ordinary Spring awakening. The planets are practically radio-silent, which augurs a rather sleepy start to the season. There’s a dreamlike quality, even during waking hours. Nice for folks who could use a reprieve from Winter’s ups and downs. Annoying for those who are rarin’ to go.
Such a surreal beginning to the astrological new year is in keeping with the planetary retrogrades currently in effect. Just in case you’ve been in a cave, we’re talking about trickster Mercury, and bad boys Mars and Saturn. With this trio withholding their full power, it may feel a bit like trying to roll Sisyphus’ legendary rock up that hill. If you’re looking for a reason to take ‘er easy, the Cosmos is writing your permission slip.
Now, try telling that to your boss. The world of commerce and relationships won’t grind to a halt simply because you’ve got an understandable inclination to trip out. And that’s where the potential for frustration lies: trying to bridge the chasm between our human-made schedules and that of Life. (Guess which one wins out.)
With all this fuzzy energy hanging over us, making sense of fact versus fiction gets confusing. Mixed messages are everywhere. If you can rest in the assurance that everyone’s in the same boat, perhaps that will reduce the nuisance factor, and help you see the wisdom in delaying the start of your engines for now.
