Aries Horoscope (March 21 - April 19)
Your ruling planet is Mars.
You are practical these days in one way, Aries, yet spectacularly not at all practical in another. You are delving beneath the surface of your personality, as security issues as well as home and family concerns dominate your thought process, and exploring the resources you gain from self and from others. Your plans for the future are idealistic right now, as are your intentions toward the social circles that you favor, perhaps even to the point of self-deception. You are also becoming more aware of old patterns with regard to these group associations that underlie your vision for society at large. All this may be coming to a head at the time of the mid-month Full Moon, when you benefit by staying as alert as you can to all your possibilities.
As the month begins, you are plunging deep within your soul to find some important answers to questions that you didn't even know you were asking. This spelunking expedition into the roots of your very being has all the more poignancy for being a largely unconscious endeavor. You are coming to perhaps an altogether absorbing and interesting phase in your process by the time of the First Quarter Moon, taking place on Thursday evening May 4th, when you are facing of necessity the harder realities of what you are trying to accomplish for yourself at this time, and when a somewhat constricted sense of your creative self-expression might serve to remind you of the contrast between what you wish for and what you feel you need at the moment to keep your head above water. The Full Moon that comes along a week later, on Friday evening, May 12th, represents a dicey period of time for you, when you are taking input from others around you but in the final end are forced back into relying on yourself. You are subject to escapist fantasy at this time, or else perhaps the daring vision to accomplish what no one had previously thought possible; your actions and the eventual outcome will decide which. The Last Quarter Moon, of Saturday, May 20th, could represent another time of potential trials and tension. During this entire month you are empowered as an individual in new ways that severely put you to the test, and you will see the result of hard work in the viability of your ideals coming to fruition, or else perhaps in the failure of that effort. In either case you are given the necessary lessons that you need in order to go on to your next phase. You are moving slowly or relatively rapidly up the mountain of your destiny, but the most important thing to realize is that move you must, for there is no turning back on your spiritual evolution that calls you forth.
