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

This is a big year for change, Aries, and your remarkable evolution continues into the present month. You are feeling subtle vibes for an exciting fresh start in all areas of your life, especially the necessary spiritual component that ties together and gives meaning to the remainder of your journey. You have only to beware of taking yourself too seriously or the cosmic connection too lightly. This is a climactic fall season for you and it must be noted that your life at this time cannot be fully understood by the same mind set that that has gotten you to this point, and that has prevailed within your thinking up to now. New mental perspectives are required transcending previous ones, and these incorporate Spirit as a significant component in the equation.

As the month begins you are thinking about your future. This is both a more idealistic vision than any you have fully credited up to now and also one that is just a bit scarier and more confusing. Your thought is taking off in unusual and you might say even penetrating directions, and this includes elements that take you far beyond the purely physical plane so that you must literally think outside the box of your fives senses and of the three dimensions of ordinary reality in order to give justice to feelings and perceptions that are currently knocking at the doorways of your mind. This is life-enhancing, ultimately. You know at the innermost core of your being that there is more to life than is indicated by the sensations of the physical world, so that any forays that you are able to make into these numinous other-worldly planes of existence, and by any means, represent an enhancement and an expansion of your participation in life itself. This also has repercussions for significant relationships in your life since you are currently enabled to see more deeply into not only your own psyche but also that of others. The First Quarter Moon of Wednesday, November 2nd, opens you up even more fully to the creative void within and beyond material existence. This is a testing time when practical considerations make themselves painfully evident; a time when your ideas as relatively unformed as they have been, must sharpen and be made more concrete to in order to survive. Conflicts in point of view are possible, and equally the perspectives of others can help you to form and shape your own thoughts. With the Full Moon time of the following week, centered around the Taurus Full Moon of Thursday, November 10th, a balance is somehow capable of being struck. The concepts of others form an amalgam with your own ideas, strengthening each. Surprising enlightenment emerges as the order of the day, perhaps almost too exhilarating, so that calmness and surrender are important qualities to cultivate. With one part of your mind and soul you are delving deep into the innermost depths of your psyche, no matter how hard you try to keep up appearances to the contrary. The Last Quarter Moon of Friday, November 18th, marks another powerfully transformative period and makes an intensely interesting bookend to these ruminations. This represents an active and yet also thoughtful and almost meditative time for you, when you will be summing up the lessons learned over the previous three weeks of the lunar cycle. Mercury is getting ready to retrograde in your sector of Higher Mind, contributing to the philosophically reflective stance you are now taking. As well as the more obvious considerations of what is truly going on for you beneath the surface, you are allowing yourself to meditate on life direction as well, and where indeed the current series of events and synchronicities might actually be taking you. The Thanksgiving Day New Moon and Solar Eclipse of Thursday, November 24th, begins yet another important phase as you see even further into the worlds within worlds underlying and echoing this surface one.
