AriesMarch 21 - April 19
Aries, as the week begins you may feel like you’re in a bit of a mental fog. With the Full Moon in Gemini, Mercury and the Sun in Sag, and Neptune currently retrograde in Pisces, we’re collectively feeling a blend of scattered energy, restlessness, and confusion. It’s important for you to slow down and not try to force clarity in your life. Let this full moon reveal the missing pieces. You may have to postpone certain work deadlines or social plans, but it’s better to be honest with yourself and others about where you currently are mentally and emotionally, rather than pretending that everything’s okay. Rest, breathe, and take things one step at a time. By the time the full moon energy wanes this Wednesday, you’ll be filled with momentum once more.

Key themes: Envisioning and initiating new goals, shifting relationships, co-creative empowerment, reflection and intention
Aries, it’s almost as if the year of 2023 saved the best for last. For you, the Astro forecast of December is filled with movement, expansion and “aha” moments.
On December 1st, Mercury enters Capricorn, activating your sector of career, long-term goals and finances. Even though there’s a wind-down energy with December, you’ll notice a refreshed sense of inner focus and motivation coming through with this transit. It’ll feel more natural mapping out visions, and you’ll feel more equipped to take the necessary steps towards fulfilling them. Mercury in Capricorn thinks, before it acts. Paired with your momentum Aries, this is some real game-changer energy.
Venus has had a bumpy ride over the last few weeks, going opposite to Chiron (in your sign), and squaring Pluto. As a result, some of your relationships might be feeling a little unfamiliar, claustrophobic, or old. Perhaps they’re already shifting for the better. As Venus moves into Scorpio (December 4th), we’ll collectively continue the journey of finding the freedom to be ourselves within relationships. New ways of (healthily) doing relationship will be a key theme with your sign on the Lunar North Node all through next year. Think: honoring boundaries, sovereignty and independence at the same time as interdependence, mutual support and community.
The cosmic tap for creative inspiration is back on with Neptune going direct in its ruling sign of Pisces on December 6th, casting the perfect cosmic vibes for our Sagittarius New Moon, on December 12th. This moon powerfully activates your sector of inner and outer journeying, travel, adventure and life purpose. There can be a sense of buoyancy and restlessness that accompanies a moon such as this, so I invite you to channel this energy with intention. Set the tone for what you wish to experience over the next six months.
It’s not entirely smooth sailing this month – as we do have Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn on December 13th, before it shifts into Sag (December 23rd). But that’s less of a bummer than you might think. This retrograde will be highlighting the parts of your life that aren’t quite aligned… specifically relative to career, and your life calling. If you’ve been feeling less passionate or motivated but unsure why, this transit will reveal exactly what isn’t working. The good news is: that’s the first step in moving towards a new and improved direction.
Besides, Capricorn season (December 21st) will make life adjustments feel easy and natural, as a deepened sense of empowerment comes through. Activating your sector of world impact, you can tap into a deep sense of empowerment here Aries. Reminder: you can reflect the changes you want to see, and you can also be the one to bring (or voice) them into society. You and the universe are co-creating together after all – so what are you ready to bring forth?
A Full Moon in Cancer on December 26th initiates a wave of new energy through the month; think cozy, gentle and vulnerable vibes. With the moon in its home sign, you’ll wrap up the year with a perfect pause of introspection. Use these days wisely, as this is a true portal for emotional healing, catharsis and safe space. What was 2023 for you Aries? What were its highs, lows, and in-betweens? Can you sum it up in one word? While you’re there, what’s your chosen word and intention for 2024?
Ruling Planet: Mars, the Planet of Action
Where You’ll Find Them: Owning a start-up, winning an athletic competition, and/or skydiving
What They Avoid: Diving into the emotional depths or having to explain themselves
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and they make their mark by letting action and passion take the lead in all that they do. Wherever Aries goes, they do with a sense of purpose and ambition. They are the zodiac’s natural leaders and warriors — always seeking to be #1 and excel. As a Fire Sign, Aries learns through direct experience better than anything else. They have little patience for people or situations that are overly emotional or draining. They’d rather get lost in the fire than have to be overwhelmed by feelings. But eventually, Aries has to face their own emotions, and it’s better done sooner rather than later.
Aries thrives in a career that lets them call the shots and be in positions of leadership. For this reason, many Aries make amazing entrepreneurs. Because Aries is all about action, they also succeed in physical activities such as team sports. Being ruled by Mars, the Planet of Action, Aries is full of energy, and if they don’t find a great outlet for it they can become restless, angry or impulsive. Fortunately, when Aries does get angry (they have a short temper), they aren’t known for holding a grudge like some of the other zodiac signs. They live much more in the now moment than most signs, so they know that holding on to emotions only weighs them down. Still, it’s best not to mess with Aries — they’re fierce competitors and they can intimidate you into submission if they so chose.
As friends, Aries will be the leader of the pack, always finding a new adventure or thrill to experience. Aries can be competitive in friendship though, and this can sometimes cause tension in their relationships. For the most part, it’s all in good fun, and as long as Aries avoids being overly self-centered, they’ll attract fulfilling and exciting friendships. Aries does bore easily, and they seek people who can keep up with their passionate and fiery nature.
As lovers, Aries will at first avoid admitting to their deeper emotions. They crush hard and fall in love easily, but it’s not always for the long-haul. Aries has high standards and is often desired, so it takes them some time to commit. But when an Aries falls in love, they transform into an utter romantic, wooing their lover and treating them differently than everyone else. Just watch out for that infamous Aries temper — it can come out of nowhere and be completely destructive. Aries tends to forgive and forget more easily than the other signs though, and this helps them make amends in love — unless you’ve crossed them one too many times. Then the Aries will move on, without looking back, leaving you in the dust.
