So, let’s begin this general forecast of astrology highlights for you Aries.
Your ruler the planet Mars is moving Direct during much of the time period of this reading, so generally you should feel steady forward movement and feel you can take action on your desires.
Also, the planet Uranus (the awakener) the higher octave of Mars is moving forward at the start of 2013 until July 17, 2013 when it moves retrograde at 10:20am PT at 12º Aries. Generally those with Aries Sun, Moon, Ascendant or personal planets get a tremendous boost during this time for revolutionary change and opportunities for freedom to express your originality and take innovative action abound. Especially for those of you with Aries planets between 5 and 17 to 19º of Aries are feeling this effect of Uranus the most strongly during this time period.
On March 20th at 4:02am PT the Sun entered Aries, crossing the vernal Equinox when day and night are in perfect balance. Spring has arrived in the northern hemisphere and autumn has begun in the southern hemisphere. All of your personal planets (Mars, Mercury and Venus) have moved out of or are moving out of Pisces over the next few weeks.
On April 10th we have the Aries New Moon. The New Moon of a zodiac sign is its astrological New Year when a new planetary cycle begins. The Aries New Moon will be conjunct the Sun, Mars and Venus at 20º Aries. The Aries New Moon is in a loose and auspicious sextile to Jupiter the New Moon.
There may have been a tremendous resolution and letting go preceding this New Moon and now everything in your life is moving forward and the pace of your life excelerates! The New Moon is always an excellent time to set your intentions and make plans for taking action. The Aries New Moon is one of the best for starting new ventures, especially in the area of your life where the Aries New Moon is located.
I’ll be posting an Aries New Moon Ritual on my website, so subscribe to my blog if you haven’t already to get an email notification when it posts.
On April 12th Pluto stations retrograde at 11º Capricorn and the pressure eases in this area of your life where Pluto is located and you’ll be reviewing just how far you’ve come and consolidating your forces of renewal in this area of your life. As the planet Uranus is Direct these two planets are set to collide in a dynamic square aspect very soon now.
Since Pluto in Capricorn represents big corporations and government institutions Pluto’s retrograde motion could be a period of introspection and possible disruption or loss of momentum for making outward change and rather looking internally to make necessary changes. I think reticence and review of the old structures in our personal and collective lives at this time is a very good thing!
Starting with the Aries New Moon if not at the time of the Libra Full Moon on March 27th when the Full Moon opposed the planets Uranus (the Awakener), Mars (the planet of action and ruler of Aries), Venus (the planet of love), the Sun (your essential self) and squared Pluto (the transformer) you may have had intimations about the imminent change unfolding for you now that will put you more firmly on your path to fulfillment in this life.
At the time of the Libra Full Moon there was explosive potential for tremendous release of tension for you dear Aries on a both a personal and collective level. Breakthrough opportunities to revolutionize your life were available. Taking charge of your life and freedom of expression as an individual were highlighted.
On April 25th there’s a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Scorpio at 5º Scorpio. Mars the ruler of Aries is also a ruler of Scorpio as such this Lunar Eclipse promises to have a tremendous impact on the sign of Aries. Those with Sun, Moon and Ascendant in Aries will feel this lunar eclipse strongly.
This Scorpio Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is conjunct Saturn giving form and structure through focus and intentional effort and trine to Neptune (giving structure to your spiritual ideals). The Scorpio lunar eclipse is sextile Pluto (helping you to transform old structure), opposes Mars which indicates a forceful illumination driving you to take action and give form to a new structure. This is a powerful eclipse because of its aspects to all of these planets and will probably have far reaching ramifications and because the aspects are supportive and illuminating indicate that things will work out for you better than you can imagine both personally and collectively.
This is the first of 3 eclipses occurring over the next four weeks. At this time the Sun, Mars and Venus are in Taurus and making nice aspects to Pluto and Neptune helping you transform and realize your dreams and opposing Saturn which brings illumination for how to restructure things in your life so they’re more viable and create stability and success in your life.
On May 9th there’s a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus at 19º at 5:28pm. The moon will eclipse the Sun, Mercury and Mars and in a loose trine to Pluto. Lots of energy is being released to take action, communicate, connect in new ways and transform heal, especially related to the physical body and Mother Earth. Venus moves into Gemini today. It’s a very high energy, electric day. This day is historically celebrated as Ascension Day, the day when Jesus’ body Ascended into heaven. I think this is a rather symbolic portent of the potential for change that’s being heralded in to your life at this time.
On May 20th we have an exact square between the planets Pluto and Uranus. This is an ongoing aspect representing conflict between two heavy hitter planets in the cardinal signs of Capricorn (ruled by Saturn) and Aries (ruled by Mars). The square between Pluto and Uranus creates an uneasy undercurrent in our world through 2016. The square aspect between Pluto and Uranus brings revolutionary change to the old established order and collective structures in society like big business and government. A resurgence of the human spirit for freedom of expression and individual rights are highlighted during this time.
During this time and into June the Sun is in Gemini with Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Mars. All these planets sextile Uranus and any of your personal planets in Aries, so from the Lunar Eclipse through June 20th will be an excellent time to move forward and take action. You should see steady progress during this time and the universe supports you to enjoy life. It could be intense though as during this time we have the exact square between the planets Uranus and Pluto.
On May 24th there’s a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon at 4º Sagittarius. The Sagittarius full moon will trine the sign of Aries, so if you have your Sun, Moon, Ascendant or any personal planets in Aries you will feel harmonious and beneficial effects from this Sagittarius Full Moon especially if you have planets in Aries between 0º and 11º of Aries. This Full Moon is opposing Mars so there can feel a struggle about understand something, a tug and pull between your lower and higher minds with a consequent illumination and resolution of the tension of these opposites. Mercury is conjunct Venus at this Lunar Eclipse, so there’s a softening of the lower, chatty mind to be more gentle, open and loving which helps you find resolution of any dilemmas you may be faced with.
On June 8th there’s a new moon in Gemini at 8:56am PT at 18° Gemini. The Gemini New Moon brings fresh energy for new ideas to flow at this time. However, The day before on June 7th Mercury (ruler of Gemini) now at 11° Cancer squares Uranus at 11° Aries and forms a T-Square between these three planets Mercury, Uranus and Pluto in Cardinal signs. There’s need for negotiating between communicating and expressing our emotional needs (Merury in Cancer), our individual freedom and rights (Uranus in Aries) and the established order (Pluto in Capricorn). Some how the differences represented symbolically by these planets needs to be addressed and common ground negotiated and established so forward movement can occur. This is a slow process and a theme that will repeat itself as each of your personal planets and the Sun transit through Cancer this summer.
On June 25th at 6:40pm PT Jupiter ingresses into Cancer where it is exalted. For the past year Jupiter’s station in Gemini has brought those with planets in Aries many gifts and opportunities for expansion. Much of the time when Jupiter was in Gemini it was in a wide sextile to Uranus helping to awaken you to new opportunities and possibilities for your life. You may have felt more innovative and broken free of old ways of thinking that previously held you back.
On June 26th Mercury stations retrograde at 23º Cancer at 6:08am. This is Mercury’s second of three retrograde phases during this cycle of time. You’ll be reviewing your attitudes and patterns of thinking in this area of your life. Cancer is a feminine water sign and rules the moon. So this is a time to be in touch with your deepest emotional needs. Cancer is a Cardinal sign and square to Aries. Water tends to dampen Aries ruled by fiery Mars. It’s time to slow down. It would be a great time to take up swimming or an aerobic activity for you Aries. Embrace the more watery and passionate aspects of your being, commune with and be in acceptance of your emotions.
On July 20th Mercury stations Direct at 13º Cancer. Your review of this area of your life is ended and thankfully the T-Square between Mercury, Uranus and Pluto that occurred earlier in June is not exactly revisited.
On August 6th there’s a Leo New Moon at 2:51pm PT at 14° Leo. The Leo New Moon is trine to Aries and brings fresh new energies that recharge Aries and boost your self esteem. Your sense of drive and ambition is renewed. During the Period of time when the Sun is in Leo trine Aries Sun or other personal planets you feel good and life flows more smoothly.
Your personal planets (Mercury, Mars and Venus) have now begun to spread out on zodiacal wheel and no longer traveling as a concentrated stellium of planets as they were earlier this year. So there may not be such a constant and steady flow of energy for you as earlier this year.
Then On October 18th at 4:38pm PT we have a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon at 25º Aries, square to Jupiter and trine Venus, and in a loose conjunction to Uranus square to Pluto. This Lunar Eclipse packs a punch and gets things moving for you Aries. It’s time to celebrate your accomplishments and release any old baggage that may prevent your forward momentum. With the square to Jupiter things can easily feel over the top and exaggerated through the trine to Venus in Leo softens and smoothes the potential rough edges represented by Uranus square to Pluto.
On October 21st Mercury stations retrograde at 18° Scorpio. You will review and refresh your way of thinking and attitudes in this area of your life. During its retrograde phase and then again after it stations Direct the planet Mercury (the communicator) will make a harmonious trine aspect to Jupiter (the planet of good fortune) in Cancer, sextile Pluto (the transformer) in Capricorn and conjunct Saturn in Scorpio bringing structure to new ideas. I think this final Mercury retrograde phase during this cycle of time promises to be a very productive Mercury retrograde phase for all the zodiac signs and especially for Aries as its ruler Mars is the co-ruler of Scorpio.
On November 3rd at 4:50am PT we have a Solar Eclipse New Moon at 11º Scorpio conjunct Saturn (the planet that brings stability and structure through hard work) and in a Grand Water trine with Jupiter (the planet of good fortune) in Cancer and trine to Chiron (the wounded healer) in Pisces. The Scorpio New Moon is also sextile to Mars (ruler of Aries the planet of drive and action) in Virgo and sextile to Pluto (the transformer) in Capricorn. Mars the ruler of Aries is the old ruler of Scorpio so this Solar Eclipse will have a profound impact on those with planets in Aries. This is a beautiful New Moon and wonderfully supported for healing and bringing stability.
On December 7th Mars moves into Libra through July 26th as it stations retrograde on March 1st 2014. So, Mars, Aries ruling planet, will be in Libra for 8 months.
On December 17th there’s a Full Moon in Gemini at 1:28am at 25º on this day Uranus stations Direct and things will really start to get going for Aries again. Things could have felt slowed down with some feelings of frustration to take action and move forward since Uranus retrograde mid-July, but things will pick up pace now, especially with the Gemini Full Moon bestowing some opportunities to manifest your dreams as it is trine to the planet Neptune. The Gemini New Moon is also square to Mars so there may be a release of some feeling of conflict within yourself or with someone else.
On December 25, Christmas day, Mars at 8º Libra will oppose Uranus at 8º Aries. An illumination in these areas of your life reveals something that will help you to break through an obstacle, or an old struggle can be resolved and now. Tremendous release of tension is indicated.
Then On December 30th Mars will square Pluto. The planet Mercury is conjunct Pluto at this time. Real conflict comes to the surface. Something occurs to release the conflict and much could be revealed and discussed at this time to resolve matters. A good clearing of old issues can result now both on personal and collective levels.
North Node (head of the dragon) enters Libra on February 6th 2014. Your attention and where you need to focus shifts from Scorpio where the North Node has been located for the past 18months to Libra where the North Node will transit for the next 18 months. This means the south node moves into Aries. The South Node denotes where you have come from and what you have learned in the past and represents that which is easiest for you to understand and to do. It can represent your past actions and habits acquired from the past and your previous actions. It can be challenging to disrupt old patterns and ways of doing things, but that is your challenge now if you are to create peace in your personal life and in the world.
On March 1st Mars stations Retrograde at 27º Libra representing a time to review this area of your life. Libra is about balance and creating harmony in your relationships within yourself and with others. Mars is in its detriment in Libra which can be a good thing as it will be less aggressive and its forceful energy somewhat muted.
On April 15 we have a Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Libra at 25º Libra at 12:45am PT. The Full Moon is loosely conjunct Mercury (the communicator) which is conjunct Uranus (the Awakener). The Sun (Your essential self) is conjunct Mars (the planet of drive and ambition) and square to Jupiter (the planet of good fortune). Pluto (the transformer) has just stationed retrograde on April 14th adding some intensity to this Lunar Eclipse.
So we have a Grand Cross in Cardinal signs involving Jupiter (the planet of good fortune) which is in a loose trine to Venus (the planet of love) conjunct Neptune (the planet of spiritual love and helaing) in Pisces. There’s some good love vibes and beneficent energies available to help with the resolution of tensions being exposed at this time. I see this as a BIG crisis point when ensuing shock and resulting chaos can reveal tremendous opportunity for moving forward into a new age of enlightenment. That’s the potential for you to choose anyway!
On April 23rdth Mars at 13º Libra exactly opposes Uranus (the Awakener) at 13º Aries and squares Pluto (the transformer) at 13º Aries and Jupiter (the planet of good fortune) at 14º Cancer. The Grand Cross in Cardinal signs has become exact by degree. We’re at a major intersection and Everyone wants to take charge and be the leader. Something has to give. Who entered the intersection first and who will give the right of way. It can feel like a stalemate and there’s potential for dramatic change available now.
Then On April 29th we have the Solar Eclipse New Moon in Taurus at 8º Taurus at 11:00pm PT. Mercury (the communicator) is conjunct the Taurus New Moon which is sextile to Neptune (the planet of spiritual love and healing) and trine Pluto (the transformer). Taurus is an earth sign ruled by Venus and the harmonious alignment to Neptune and Pluto seem to suggest a harmonious and peaceful resolution for realizing dreams and transforming situations on the earth and for mankind.
