Make Time for Yourself -- Even When Your Family Needs You

Jupiter (luck and expansion) has been in Cancer (home and family) since last June. We’ve all been feeling an intense hunger for coziness, and probably partaking in a fair amount of nurturing or being nurtured. There is indeed something lovely and comforting about knowing your loved ones have your back -- and that someone is baking you cookies!

However, during the last week of March, the Sun moved into independent Aries, the sign whose signature is “me first”. This reminds us that it’s absolutely necessary to express your true self, even if the people around you don’t always understand what you feel and what you mean.

As Jupiter and the Sun build toward a challenging square aspect (exact on April 1), you may feel some tension between the urge for individual freedom and the pressing needs of your loved ones.

The planets are extremely volatile during the whole month of April, and it just gets more intense as the month goes on. This means that people are more needy than ever -- feeling neurotic, scared and confused. Don't be surprised if family members or other people you’re close to make more demands on your time this week. But don’t be a doormat, either.

As nice as it is to sit on the sofa and watch TV with your beloveds, it’s essential for you to express your individuality and creativity right now. If you suppress your self-expression or, worse, repress your true self in order to please your family, it’ll be a bad scene for everyone. Find ways to balance family time and you-time this week -- and for the rest of the month!
