TEN OF CUPS - Satisfaction and fulfillment. Life gives you everything you need to be happy.
Despite Mercury continuing it’s retrograde motion back through Pisces, this is actually a big week punctuated with some really pivotal events and realizations. Although still not the best time to make a lasting commitment, something pretty substantial occurs towards the end of the week that propels the major themes and activities of the next four months forward, ready or not!
Sun and Mercury meet up between 23 - 24 Pisces late on Thursday, squaring Jupiter (optimism!) and harmonizing the Nodal Axis, thus tapping into destiny, the future and the past. With Jupiter involved, whatever gets under way comes in on overdrive, and the potential for taking something on that can not reasonably be handled is high. At the same time, the enthusiasm and range of perspective stimulated could be precisely the trigger needed to overcome an approach that has has played it safe for too long, delaying progress out of fear of what might happen by just jumping in and getting dirty.
Mars combines it’s efforts with Saturn, building a sense of momentum while reducing the likelihood of anyone going too far off script. This makes for a steadying and ultimately more conventional approach overall, though if you feel compelled to flip the storyline you have been handed and can actually back it up through a sustained effort and with the resources available to you, then go for it! This is a rare sort of configuration and the time is ripe for bringing a big agenda to fruition.
Favorable interaction with the Nodes indicates that your inner guidance won’t let you get too far off the course of your destiny, and when events or opportunities that emerge this week have that perfect fit feeling to them - you know you are in exactly the right place at the right time. What occurs now builds on the awareness that has been resonating since the beginning of the year, (also look back to February 25th, when Mercury initially visited this degree for clues) and shifts the narrative in favor of the direction where you are headed next. The concepts and conversations that arise now point to an important event and new beginning that is set to arrive this Summer.

ARIES March 20 - April 19

TAURUS April 20 - May 20

GEMINI May 21 - June 20

CANCER June 21 - July 22

Professionally you continue to gain traction, and especially if events or circumstances last year hindered your progress, you more than make up for it right now.
VIRGO August 23 - September 22
A very important conversation or realization occurs this week within your most important partnership, and it’s possible you are rekindling your connection with a former flame. Maybe the time is right this go around, but if not you do have something you need to get sorted out so you can move on, once and for all. With Saturn overseeing your love interests, you are ready for something serious. The overall vibe is harmonious, with Mars in Taurus providing steady and determined motivation to reach your biggest goals.
LIBRA September 23 - October 23
You begin to come to a conclusion about a work or health matter that has been a source of some degree of bewilderment. Getting back on track with a diet or fitness regiment bolsters your productivity immeasurably and enables you to reach a career objective.

Communication with a partner features and agreements you make now can really stand the test of time. If you have been attempting to rekindle an association, you may find that you and/or the other person have matured enough to move forward.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 22 - Dec 21
The fog begins to lift on a confusing residential situation by the weeks end. This one takes a little longer to untangle (think second week of April) but there are clues or evidence suggesting that a solution is in sight. Try to keep your responses to a situation proportionate to the actual size of the issue. Financial circumstances also show signs of improvement and going the distance on your current assignment demonstrates an admirable work ethic that can lead to substantial and sustainable earnings. Keep the pace moderate and consistent to get the most out of your work.
CAPRICORN December 22 - January 19
Imagination is stimulated with some real hits of inspiration coming in (think waves hitting the shoreline) that propel ideas and creative endeavors forward. Intuition runs strong in this phase and though you are still likely to be getting some mixed signals, you seem to be able to read between the lines. A strong sense of inner assurance prevails, and especially where there have may been difficulties in getting your personal objectives underway last year, you are finally gaining momentum. A partnership benefits from an open mind.
AQUARIUS January 20 - February 18
As you start to get your head around your money situation and what you really value, the future of your job becomes clearer. If in the process of negotiation for a promotion, pay or benefits structure, then it’s likely developments or a significant conversation towards the end of the week could signal a turning point. Feel free to keep up the inter-exchange going for a few more weeks, as you might determine or discover a better opportunity is right around the corner. Your personal life continues to command a lot of your attention and resources. Make concessions as required.
PISCES February 19 - March 20

Under these auspices, it could be easy to get carried away, as so much of the news reaching you is probably good! Take everything in without leveraging too much weight upon one or another outcome for the time being, as there is still more to be revealed over the coming weeks. On the other hand, if a flash of inspiration sparks your creative mojo, go for it and don’t look back!
