We can’t really think things through Mercury in Pisces is about feeling things through. It is about trusting your intuition. So for the rest of yoof the month, it’s really important that you get out of your anxiety and fear. Come to this place of calm so that you can trust your intuition.

Happy Astrological New Year!When the sun enters Aries as a cardinal sign this also signals the equinox. The Equinox is when our days and our nights on the northern hemisphere watching in the southern hemisphere also will be equal. Time to balance and to start new in Aries. Aries in our business is all about self starting. It’s about courage. It’s about our identity.

Getting closer to slow moving Pluto It has the potential to wild fire… concentrate this tremendous energy into a tool for good. Blow torch vs out of control fire. Time to ignite and take inspired action where you can build strong foundations for your brand.

What ever you are feeling in terms of anger, fear, motivation – this is going to get exacerbated. How will you use it?
