“Only with winter-patience can we bring about the deep-desired, long awaited spring.” Anne Morrow Lindburgh
Mars recently entered the sign of Taurus and will transit through this sign through late April. This placement is often seen in the charts of landscapers and gardeners – who are attuned to the rhythm and pace of natural cycles of growth – from seed to flower. Mars, governed by the god of speed and action is frustrated in this sign as it can slow things down and require patience when Mars wants to rush ahead.
Mercury enters the sign of Aries today and the Sun is moving up to a square with Saturn – exact on Friday. It is wise to make sure planning is sound, details have been taken care of and to avoid impulsiveness. Saturn is about being in it for the long haul – and being prepared and committed to that process with each incremental step.
One of the Sabian symbols for the transit of Mars into Taurus is,”Natural steps up to a lawn blooming with clover.” And one of the symbols for Mercury’s ingress into Aries is, ” A seal has risen out of the ocean and a woman is embracing her.”
