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

You are transforming at the core, Aries. This is the time when you capitalize on your recent spiritual momentum. The ideas you have been incubating lately started perhaps as long ago as last fall, and now you are ready to pop. A new form of outer manifestation is in the works for you that more closely matches your evolving inner vision. New spring initiatives in your life are also likely to involve interpersonal relationships, a huge area of change for you right now, and your connections with home and family, the roots of your being. Everything is blossoming.

As the month begins, you are likely to be feeling quite good, full of the vibrant energy of your birthday season. You may find that your future is occupying your thoughts at present, and also how to make the most of it in a way that satisfies your heart as well as your mind. Your ideas are powerful right now, and you may find that old habits of thinking are yielding gracefully at this time to an entirely new solution. It really is possible to transcend the past, especially when you stay as open you can to all of your possibilities. You will want to pick out your direction and the channel where you want your life to flow, but after that it pays to not be attached in any way to your chosen outcome, since your conscious understanding is not the only captain of the ship. At the time of the April 5th New Moon, coming along on the first weekend of the month, you will feel a pulse of energy for optimistic goals that may leave you breathless. You are entirely serious about what you feel that you can contribute to the surrounding collective at this time, and may also be aware of limitations that physically hold you back and make the path up the mountain of your destiny steeper than usual, with more hard work involved than you would like. You are also in a joyful and far-seeing place right now and possessed of an expansive vision that can pierce through many obstacles. The Quarter Moon is a testing phase when you will find out what parts of the impulse from the beginning of the month are viable and what portion needs to be adjusted in the light of actual events. The Full Moon of April 20th is a time of the flowering of your initiatives moving forward, when you are ready to share your vision with others around you and enlist the aid of your team to make it happen. Something fundamental is transforming in the way that you show up in the world, no doubt at all about that by the time this dramatic cycle closes.
