This month the energy slows and Mars remains in retrograde, seemingly putting a pause on our drive and motivation. As things may feel more frustrated or tense than they may normally, use this time to seek your own inner sense of peace. We are able to tap into our own sources of comfort and look to our individual inner landscapes for validation, support, and graciousness. The month starts off with a Full Moon, heightening our awareness of the peaceful balance we are seeking to embody.
How you relate to the people in your social life, at work, and in partnerships is the theme for this month. You are likely more open to sharing than you might normally be, with an inner vision that is growing stronger each day. Use some of your inward focus to help you work through challenges or difficult emotions. If you feel your energy scattering out of your control, use some mindfulness techniques to bring you back into the present moment. Most things are not as tense as they seemed after the fact.

You seem to make a statement this month in sharing your opinions or perspectives with others. This can be helpful—and somewhat confronting— to those who hear your message. Stick with it, especially if your intuition is leading the way. When you tune into what you know is true at your core you cannot be steered wrong. Things will have a way of magically working out exactly as they are meant to.
