AriesMarch 21 - April 19
This weekend’s Quarter Moon in Taurus encourages us to take a look at the new moon intentions we set a week ago and refine them. There could also be some initial challenges popping up, and we’re being asked to practice patience in the face of delays or mix-ups. Aries, spend time this weekend focusing on ways to boost your self-esteem, not only when it comes to material value or accomplishments, but especially when it comes to the relationship you’re cultivating with yourself when no one else is around. How do you feel when it’s just you and you? Some solitude will do you good right now, especially since Jupiter’s presence in Aries has led to there being much more attention on you lately. Indulge in some good old fashioned self-care and self-reflection.

What a year, Aries.
December offers you a powerful chance to take all your growth and lessons of the year – and channel them directly into new seeds, tangible goals, actions and steps so that the next twelve months are even richer. With focus, awareness and intention – you’ll be able to make incredible moves this month.
The month kicks off with Neptune going direct in its home sign (Pisces) on December 3rd. For you, this activates your sector of spiritual connection, gifting you with a sense of clarity and perhaps even some loud divine intervention.
Perfect timing, as just a few days later Mercury enters the go-getter sign that is Capricorn on December 6th. This will add a layer of clarity, assertiveness and focus to your thoughts and communication style. It will be an excellent time to discuss, negotiate or commence new plans and projects.
The very next day a Full Moon in Gemini will be illuminating your sector of communication as well. All of the above is a strong prompt from the universe to speak up. If there’s anything that needs to be expressed from new ideas, your needs or expectations – now is the time.
As the first sign of the Zodiac, you do have a tendency to be a bit of a lone wolf at times Aries – but there is a reminder this month that you can’t always do it alone. Sometimes collaboration is simply a way of speeding up the process of manifestation.
On December 20th, Jupiter, otherwise known as the planet of abundance, luck, synchronicity and expansion – is entering your powerful sign. This is as good as it sounds, and you might just feel like you’re receiving a hug from the universe.
Because Jupiter is also direct, you may notice an increase in lucky breaks and opportunities. If this is the case, of course use your discernment, but stay open to the idea of radical changes. It might just be what’s needed!
Plus, Capricorn season beginning the next day (Dec 21st) reminds you that you can achieve anything that you set your mind to.
This sense of empowerment will be heightened on December 23rd when Chiron, the asteroid of our deepest wounding, ends its retrograde in your sign. This huge energy has the potential to alleviate self-inflicted limitations and sore spots. If you tap into it, by learning about your Chiron placement (by house and sign), this may just be a time of deep catharsis and emotional release. Because it’s in your sign this is particularly strong for you Aries. So, notice what’s been hurting and spend time in self-reflection. Here, you may just receive the solace that you’ve been seeking.
(Tip: KTZ does offer a wonderful Chiron guide, written by yours truly.)
A Capricorn new moon the very same day will ground the feeling that anything is possible for you Aries. You’ll always have hiccups and challenges (Mercury Retrograde begins Dec 29th) because such is life… but you always have the potential to rise and soar above them.
Thank you for being with us this year Aries, and see you on the other side.
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.
