THE BIG WIDE WOBBLY WORLD
The upside of the generally wobbly-world flakiness in March (for you it involves the internet, publishing, travel and education) is the thinking time it buys you. Something here could be (and should be) a great escape – a little alternative world where you travel or travel in the mind. The key is not doing anything major until after 6th April when Mercury is out of shadow. Because if you push it now, there will be a change. Maybe something even more complicated. Virgin boss Richard Branson is a Cancerian. Watch what happens to Virgin airlines in March. Big wide wobbly world alert!
If you realise it’s temporary, and not your whole reality – you’ll enjoy the website, book, regional destination, blog, university, weekend workshop or international encounter this year. You’ll sink gratefully into it, like a turquoise pool on a hot day. Let everyone else swelter in reality. You’ve got the dream!
You’ve already been given two or three little ‘other realities’ to dip into over the last 12 months. And their whole attraction was that they had an other-worldly quality about them. You could play let’s pretend with the trip, book, website, foreign person…and you got away with it, as if it was actually real or something.
Now, the crab memo. If you can buy yourself time to avoid having to make any major decisions about this big wide wobbly world matter, great. If you have to go ahead, check the fine print and allow for u-turns, delays or communication misfires. If there is one month of the year when bad weather or strikes are going to stall stuff, this is it.
In particular, don’t be caught by the New Moon near Monday 11th. That might seem like it’s a big green light for something new to happen, but it’s a loopy time to launch anything, from an e-book to a trip. I sincerely hope you read your horoscope back in January because you would never have allowed your publisher to launch that book now. Would you?
From 6th April use everything you learned, researched, crossed out and scribbled over – as a traveller, publisher, teacher, student, writer and world citizen. Then it works. It works so damn well, you’ll set it aside as My Little Big Escape for the rest of the year.
SUCCESS IS A REVOLUTION
Actually, you shouldn’t really care what the world tells you success is. After two years of regular irregularity, it’s clearly freedom. In fact, success is a revolution waiting to happen. Ending in your total exhilaration and uncompromising liberation from a very particular kind of shackling. Being shackled to climbing a ladder (social or professional) or engaging in corporate mountaineering is a good example.
There is your career pre 2011 and your career post 2011. And then there is March-April as well, which is quite frankly the next step.
A lot will happen very quickly, Cancer. April will be set up before your eyes as March rolls on. Don’t do anything major near the Full Moon near the 27th but don’t take it seriously either – it just shows you where the flaws in the revolution are.
If you feel wired – physically tense – or find yourself talking or sketching out plans more excitedly, then Uranus in Aries is working for you. He was found in the year Galvani made a dead frog dance. That process is called galvanisation. If you’re feeling that jerk in your little frog legs, then you’re on track. If you’re not feeling it then you’re probably just stunned at the way your world keeps turning upside-down and there’s nothing you can do stop it. Moan. Stop moaning! Read your history! See what Galvani did in 1781!
Correct the situation by joining the radicals who realised (about two years ago) that making it is actually about breaking the faking. Okay? You make it when you no longer have to fake it.
WHAT YOU HIDE FROM EVERYBODY
You can and will get more from what you hide from everybody – near the days when Jupiter is active in your horoscope near the 4th, 10th, 24th, 27th, 29th, 30th, 31st.
If you’re not covering something up, then you’re certainly spending more time alone. And that’s great. Because this is your best chance in 12 years to gain from hibernating.
This cycle ends in June. You don’t have long to go if you’re writing an erotica e-book under a pseudonym. Similarly, if you’re seeing a counsellor or going to AA in private. I have no idea what you are doing. I just know that nobody else can see or touch it. And also that it’s the best damn thing you’ve pursued for years.
