Aries 2019 year ahead

Family and home life is a focus. But it seems like there is tension at home and this relates to your career or business. Your work role is frustrating and you are conflicted about your work and daily life. Managing your children and work is perhaps also proving to be challenging.
This is an important time personally – you need to focus on your financial situation. Focus on long term financial goals. Deal with debt. Put measures in place to deal with these matters. You need to be serious about sorting out financial matters. This is a very good time to be making decisions and putting plans in place. What changes do you need to make in your business/career? What is the impact on your day to day work role? What must change at home to make matters easier financially? It is time to be disciplined and time to act.
It is important that you and your partner/spouse are on the same page and ready to make some changes to alleviate the issues at home. There is something on the home front that you are not dealing with and or not seeing. Make sure you are communicating and sorting out family matters.

Mercury Retrograde – March 2019

Mercury changes direction on 5 March and travels retrograde until 29 March 2019 before turning direct again. What will make this retrograde period more challenging is that Mercury finds itself in Pisces – the sign of its detriment and fall. Mercury is not comfortable in Pisces. Mercury concerns itself with details. In Pisces which is Jupiter ruled, the focus is the big picture and the search for the truth. It is a time where we are going to need to go over things and re-look small details and sift through the bits and pieces of information in search of the truth. Jupiter is in Sagittarius the sign of its rulership and is particularly strong at the moment. The search for the truth is very powerful at this time. The trickster (Mercury) will be desperate to continue telling stories and half-truths. There will be intense pressure for the truth to come out. But deception is all over Mercury and those peddling lies will continue to fabricate stories and half-truths. This is powerful when Neptune will connect with Mercury on 24 March and 2 April. Neptune will add to the confusion. Be aware of lies and being deceived. Seems appropriate that South Africa is dealing with matters of corruption and state capture through the various commissions of enquiry. Let’s hope the truth comes out.
Make sure you back up phones and computers. Hold off making travel plans. Make sure you have all the information you need to make informed decisions. Things may change or you may become aware of things that may influence your travel plans. Use this time for research and information. Don’t get mad if people don’t get back to you – they may not have received your email. You may very well have to start the conversation again.
Be mindful about any business dealings. Are you being deceived? Is the deal too good to be true? If so, it probably is.
