Mars is direct now, and the magic hands (skill, dexterity) of Virgo return. Mars plays a supporting role with the upcoming Taurus New Moon (April 21st). Mars has been retrograde in Virgo, since late January! Have you gotten to the bottom of any habits, or made major changes in the rhythm of your day?
Mars is action, and Virgo is the mutable earth sign of skill, healing and an instinct for how things work. What comes to mind is getting to the deeper psychic roots of habits or health issues. When affirmations or trying to change the mind don't work, it's time to dig deeper into the source. This calls for patience and persistence, and with a Virgo Mars, there's an added boost when actions make a contribution to the village in some way.
Earth energies inspire dedication, and committing yourself to something in line with your values. Mars will be in wide trine to Pluto, moving closer to an exact harmony in mid-May. As we dig into foundations, experience demolition of old ways of thinking or beliefs, Mars in adaptable Virgo brings the energy of healing, integration. We find the groove, when we find ways to be useful, and ending the day knowing we did our part to heal the world.
The Moon wanes (diminishes) now, and until April 21st. This is the time for clearing out, weeding, and making space to grow things in your newly composted garden. I'm on a road trip today for a cousin's wedding -- coincidentally, it's also our anniversary! Enjoy your weekend!Stone/Getty Images
