Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
Coming off the heels of a big eclipse from last week, you’re dealing with a Mercury retrograde. This is very much a good week to use for recuperation and reconsideration. The “re” words are on purpose as the actions that begin with that prefix are among the best to do—except retreat. You’re not in retreat. You’re in repose. As the Sun prepares to go into Scorpio on Wednesday, you’re working on getting your bearings with some new developments and progressions that may put one of your long-standing dreams within reach. It may seem like you’re taking a step back in that direction, but you’re not. Sometimes you have to dig around in the dark to reach parts of your mind and heart to find the sterner stuff that’ll get you to the next level.
