Aries Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Cardinal Fire. Your ruling planet is Mars.

It's time to don your wading boots, Aries. The nascent spring season demands much of you, but the ultimate rewards will be great as well, as you vision novel life plans and complete important links to your inner world. You may experience limitation regarding health concerns or issues of support to the surrounding collective at this time, but it all serves to remind you of your true nature, beneath the surface glitter. If you stay true to your vision for a better future you will eventually prosper; remember that it's a long road that has no turning.

As the month begins, you are in the midst of an interesting and self-reflective period when you are meeting your needs in a new way that involves struggle, and yet also easing into a simpler and more loving relationship with the world around you with no struggle necessary. Communication with others around you is enlightened and mystical these days and affords graceful passage into new ideas for your future. You are very idealistic right now, and the trick is to maintain your naïve stance without being taken in by false promises. Adopting a wait and see attitude works wonders for you at this time. As the saying goes, trust in Allah but remember to tie up your camel. The New Moon Solar Eclipse of the evening of February 6th represents a creative time for you when you feel a strong sense of your societal connection and how you might improve this area of your life. At this time you may also find that situations conspire to bring up issues you thought were long dormant regarding your interaction with friends and with the group associations that you favor. The First Quarter Moon of the following week, taking place on Wednesday, February 13th, brings an element of tension to your process, and also a form of self-reflection regarding important relationships in your life, as you adjust your values to a greater degree of acceptance. The Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse of Wednesday, February 20th continues this trend and emphasizes the changing drama of your outer world commitment. You are in the midst of an important period of transformation, and the sooner you recognize this simple fact and accept it, the better off you will be and the easier will be your transition. This time of the eclipse also reminds you that the practical and the mystical sides of your nature are but two side of the very same coin. Like your inner and your outer parts, they are but different facets of the same underlying soul-purpose.
