Astrology, the art of interpreting the placement and movement of the planets is similar to a cosmic weather report. Are there blue skies ahead or should we plan for some turbulence? This spring Mars – which represents desire, action and motivation – is the planet to watch, as it metaphorically slows down and appears to move backwards. How will this influence us globally and personally? Is this a good time to buy a house, fall in love or neuter the cat? C. A.
