Have you faced a fight or felt more fired up or short-fused during the past few days? You can pin it on planet Mars ditching Pisces for Aries. For the next five weeks, Mars will continue to pack a punch—or help you do so. There’s nothing slow or subtle about this ready-shoot-aim transit.
As of Friday, Venus also advances into Aries. On the same page with her hot-blooded partner Mars, both lust for the fresh, new, and freeing. Both are on a cut to the chase regarding all matters to do with relationships.
Venus is usually a fast traveller, but due to her upcoming retrograde cycle (March 3 to April 15), Venus keeps the heat turned on through the start of June. This transit allows extra time to bring it up to speed, to feel our way through a “new me”, which also evolves the “new we”. Financial matters stay on the front burner too. Although the duo can fire up a hot new lover or money maker, know they are also hot for battle.
Mercury’s advance into Aquarius on Tuesday also serves as an awakening, informing, instigating, and activation influence. Tuesday through next Saturday are especially opportune; luck runs high for some. Take your best shot! The exceptional could come to pass.

Your ruler Venus will be on an extended tour of Aries through mid-June.
