Mars cazimi in Aries is a very rare event and it will prove to be the make-or-break element in your success on Wednesday. If your motives are pure, then you will succeed beyond your wildest imagining. The solar burst to Mars will put you way over your anticipated goal. If your motives are ulterior, then things will take a nasty turn for the worse as you will be exposed and vilified. You don’t want to do anything underhanded when Mars is at its most valiant. It will only backfire.
Don't doubt yourself — even if the odds are stacked against you and you feel like you’re out of your league. You’ll want to press on, no matter what, because Mars will be cazimi on Wednesday. Cazimi means “in the heart of the Sun” and Mars here will infuse you with a revitalized strength and energy — kind of like when Popeye gulps down a can of spinach. This is good for deadline crunches, salvaging a situation from the brink of disaster, or turning the tables on an opponent.
People do all sorts of things in order to get ahead, but that doesn’t necessarily make it right. This will be something to keep in mind when Mars enters your zodiac sign on April 20. Mars will be in Taurus until May 31, which means that you stand to make more headway in the next six weeks than you have in the past six months. But be careful about the toes you step on. Just because they yield the field now, doesn’t mean that they won’t return wearing combat boots later.
Wait until next week to share those brilliant ideas of yours. Colleagues are exhausted, supervisors are spent, and nobody is listening to anyone. You, on the other hand, are full of inspiration and insight. That’s because your Ruling Planet Mercury is in Aries, so you’re ready to tackle new challenges. Not only do you have bold plans about how to jumpstart a project, you can see how to do it more cost-effectively. But like I said — wait until next week. They’ll be all ears after the 23d.
The Sun/Mars conjunction on Thursday will have a powerful impact on you — especially if you were born between July 15 and July 21. This shows that something that was put on the backburner — like a client, project, or account — will suddenly be front and center. Not only that, but you may be in charge of it! The train has already pulled out of the station, but you can still catch it if you run.
April 17, 18, and 19 are amazing days for you and your career. It’s the perfect time to go on a job interview, to pitch a project, or to ask for a raise because you will get it. You can also expect an enormous workload as a result. It will take up a lot of your time and energy through the rest of the spring, but no burden is too much to carry if you love what you do for a living.
This would be a good time to go back to school, or to at least take a refresher course in what it is you do. We all need to brush up on our skills from time to time and that includes a perfectionist like you. One can never know enough — especially nowadays when social media and ever-changing sales models are tossing new elements into the mix. It’s a hassle making room in your already packed to-do list, but you’ll be glad you did in the weeks to come.
There’s nothing wrong with finding your niche at work. In fact, the more specialized the function, the more invaluable you are. This is something to keep in mind as you grow more adept at what you do and more reliable in the eyes of your boss. You can’t ask for a raise or promotion now (sorry, things are just too volatile) but you can in the fall. Prepare by researching what others make for doing what you do.
You can do better. It may sound like an arrogant statement, given the state of the current economy and how people will do just about anything for a job, but the truth is — you can. Now this isn’t something you have to go out and do today, tomorrow, or next month. Think of it as your daily mantra. Keep saying it to yourself (just once a day is all) and you’ll recognize the opportunity when it materializes.
You love to learn and the fact that you’re being groomed for a new position at work on Wednesday is pretty exciting. However, you may find that what you thought would be a walk-through is substantially more complicated. There is a lot more to this position than you were told about, and you could even feel overwhelmed by it all. Don’t bolt. Just stick with it and you’ll find that you will master these skills in time. But it will take longer than you expected.
Dramatic developments on Wednesday and Thursday will change the playing field. You will have to scroll back in your daily agenda to July 21, 2009 to see if that date rings a bell. Perhaps this was when you were let go from your previous company, worked with an influential client on a high-profile project, or had to shut down your business because of costs. In any case, things have come full circle and that closed door will be opening again on a bigger and brighter future.
You have a knack for getting along with the competition. Most people wouldn’t even speak to them, much less reach across the aisle. You, however, enjoy a healthy exchange of ideas, and will deliberately seek out those whose opinions do not agree with yours. What you get in return is stimulating conversation, intriguing perspectives, and fresh takes on the formulaic — all of which you will be able to put to creative use in the weeks ahead.
Don’t take the bait on the 17th when a co-worker launches into a scathing criticism of your job performance. It’s a calculated attack meant to undermine your confidence at a time when your star is on the rise. This person raises his status by getting you to lower yours, so ignore him and let the outpouring of vitriol go in one ear and out the other. Everyone knows that his days are numbered and his unprofessional behavior towards you only seals the deal as far as your employer is concerned.
