Aries Horoscope (March 21 - April 19)
Your ruling planet is Mars.
Ideas abound, Aries. You are on course to really begin to recreate yourself and your values– and the basis for your emotional security – out of the failed premises of the past. You are going through a birth process that is sometimes difficult but never dull, making an embattled stand for your cherished beliefs both new and old. You might wind up questioning everything that you ever knew, or thought you did, but there’s an excellent chance of it all coming out somehow right in the end. Your basic quality of character, the strength of your resolve, and your trust in the benevolence of the surrounding universe will see you through.
As the month begins, you are really feeling the thrust of the T-square of outer planets in Cardinal Signs — of which yours is one. This dynamic configuration is characterized by the transformative effects of Uranus in square with Pluto but greatly compounded by the opposing presence of Saturn located in your seventh sector of relationship. Significant partners in your life are doubly important to you now, serving both as mentor-like providers of a contrasting point of view to your own, and as catalytic agents for your on-going transformation. Since the New Moon that begins the month is also a Solar Eclipse in your sector of home and family, it is an especially powerful time for you, and one that connects you to your own deep center in ways that you have not experienced. Home, family and tribe are increasingly important to you as the month wears on and you become more versed in exactly what the universe is trying to tell you regarding this fundamental area of your life. Following the July 1st New Moon by almost a week, and presenting a contrast to that burst of forward-going energy, the First Quarter Moon of late Thursday evening and early Friday morning, July 7th and 8th, could definitely represent a slowdown. This is a time when you must decide which of your impulsive initiatives from the time of the New Moon are truly viable. You might feel virtually stopped in your tracks by partnership intervention but then again it is helpful to take in the balance point of other views to counteract your native wildness. The collaboration between progressive and conservative viewpoints taking place within you is both necessary and fruitful at this time. The Full Moon of Thursday night and Friday morning, July 14th and 15th, provides a place of relative self-assurance in the face of storms. You are reaching for a balance between public and private, self and other. There is a way that as you make your way in the outer world of public achievement you can allow for partnership interaction to count, yet not too much. The Last Quarter Moon of Friday, July 22nd, brings you to a contemplative stance, good for examining all that has come before it during this powerful lunation. You are poised to continue your self-exploration with the next month’s cycle, kicked off on the weekend of July 30th with the LeoNew Moon. You are more philosophical now than ever, putting the information that you have gleaned to good use as you mull over the changes and challenges represented by recent events.
