“I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of the hunger for life that gnaws in us all.”
Richard Wright, Black Boy
Mercury returns to Aquarius today and makes a lovely sextile to Venus as she heads in Taurus — where she is much more comfortable. There’s a sense of coming up for air and finding words where in the recent past it may have felt like trying to communicate underwater. Our interactions with others are smoothed and our ability to clarify our message begins to improve. Cooperation is demanded and heartily welcomed when it arrives. On the other hand, we seem to have an aversion to any conflicts, which may result in continuing to leave the details hanging — awaiting further clarification. We seem more interested in finding common ground than picking apart areas that still lack clarity.
Retrograde Mercury sextiles Venus this afternoon, bringing heartfelt conversations, lucrative opportunities, creative ideas, and a burst of inspiration. We’re seeing another side of a story, and there are options. Know what you want and then you needn’t be distracted by shiny objects. It’s about your values.
These are also the final hours of Venus in Aries. Venus enters Taurus, its home sign, tonight and remains here until April 3. This bodes well for relationships and financial and creative matters, which can flourish now. This is a chance to stop and smell the roses, slow down to savor life, and nurture the relationships and situations that are important to you.
Taurus can be stubborn, but that’s because Taurus is an earth sign, which represents nature and the earth itself. You can’t budge the earth, but you can plant seeds in it and nurture them to life.
