You don’t know if it’s fear or desire
Danger the drug that takes you higher
Head in heaven, fingers in the mire
Her heart is racing, you can’t keep up
The night is bleeding like a cut
Between the horses of love and lust
We are trampled underfoot
— U2, So Cruel
Today, the Aries Sun and Mars in Libra face-off as they form an exact opposition to each other at 5:03 PM EDT today April 8, 2014. Also the Moon entered Leo this morning and Mercury is now in Aries, adding to the fiery, passionate energy.
Relationships are heating up, and the aspects today certainly fanning passion, calling for spontaneity. But people may seem to be blowing hot and cold, making it hard to understand where someone else is coming from, or not knowing where you stand with someone or in a situation.
Not everything is about you, so avoid taking things personally. You can’t force someone to feel or act the way you do either. Yet, what’s unfolding is revealing a deeper truth about yourself, allowing you to reconnect with your passion.
If you find yourself getting restless or impatient, take a deep breath and ask yourself — do you know what you want? Where are you going? And more importantly, who are you?
The Sun is in Aries and Mars is the ruler of Aries, retrograde in Libra the sign opposite from Libra. So although there is a desire to move forward and deeper into something, there may still be a sense of hesitancy and holding back.
This doesn’t mean something is wrong, or dangerous or there is anything you need to fear. But caution and awareness is healthy, so you don’t jump from the frying pan into the fire, or rushing off too far in the wrong direction. This is a necessary balancing out of your own desires so you can discover an important truth about yourself and respond to situations from your center, rather than react in panic, haste or be motivated by fear. Then a situation can find it’s natural balance.
There may even be relationships, situations or ghosts from the past coming up for resolution. Rather than trying to base your decisions on someone else and then be thrown off balance if the other person takes another direction — be honest with yourself.
Acknowledge any anger or frustration, rather than project it onto others, or blame another. Also, own and acknowledge your own desires, your passion, or fears of rejection, failure, intimacy, commitment, needs for validation, acceptance or whatever they may be — rather than trying to fight or deny them, or hold to expectations of them being reciprocated. Then you can weigh out your options and clear the air with another if need be, and choose a course of action or the relationships that are important to you.
Similarly, if you find yourself running around with too much to do and feeling overwhelmed, this is your cue to pause, breathe and find your center. Then you can channel your energy effectively, prioritizing what is important to you rather trying to get everything done, pleasing others and getting nothing accomplished. Do what you can, do your best, and trust the rest will fall into place.
