It’s almost spring, babes. This month, Venus, the planet of love, rolls through Aquarius while communication planet Mercury goes retrograde in Pisces. What does this mean? You’ll be sparked with creativity and intellectual debates. Love, of course, is on the forefront for everyone, so be aware of what your mind and heart wants. The new moon and full moon this month will create a balance with partnership and your individuality, creating a healthy romance with others and yourself.
Don’t forget that Mercury retrograde starts on Tuesday, March 5, which means anything toxic or unnecessary will be tunneled out of your life.
Here we go:
You feel extra open to others this month. Go with your heart.
You are on fire this month. Everyone wants a piece of you. Which, you know, is what you love.
You are on a roll with a creative project. It’s exhilarating.
Sometimes you aren’t sure if you want to take things more seriously with a partner or dial back. Meditate on this.
Your emotions are kind of everywhere this month and that’s OK. Don’t rush a big decision.
Romance is on your mind this month. Things are getting steamy for you in all levels, aren’t they?
It’s time to get a little more social, and you’re feeling the itch to party.
Dive into your inner creative muse and just allow yourself to express what’s been on your mind.
You crave attention but aren’t getting in the right places or with the right people. Why is this?
This month is all about love and connection for you. Go with your heart and brain, be smart.
It’s OK to be vulnerable this month and take a risk.
You are in planning mode for a project or professional development. Dig deep inside yourself.
