AriesMarch 21 - April 19
Over the next few days, we see the moon enter the final sign of the zodiac, Pisces. This brings a collective shift into a more flowy and creative way of being. We move beyond the rational mind – into realms of intuition, emotional sensitivity and empathy. Aries, a challenging connection between the Moon and Mercury (currently retrograde), might bring your attention to where you’re too ‘in your head.’ You may start to relax more into a state of divine surrender on Tuesday, especially with a harmonious connection between Mercury and your ruling planet of Mars. Sometimes bigger picture objectivity is the best way to flow with, rather than against the currents of life. If you feel like your journey currently involves nothing but obstacles… It’s time to broaden your horizons to include an entirely new approach.
Aries, the month begins with the New Moon in Pisces receiving hopeful and expansive blessings from Jupiter. Make time to rest and regenerate. Memories will flow through and bring emotions. Let them inform you, don’t ignore what they have to say. On the 6th, Mars and Venus enter Aquarius. Don’t let the excitement of wanting to say yes to every invitation burn you out. Check in to see if you actually have the emotional availability. Mercury enters Pisces in your area of the unconscious on the 9th, making it a good time for research and quiet contemplation. If you’re feeling down, make sure to speak kindly and compassionately to yourself. On the 18th, we have the Full Moon in Virgo, and it wants you to get organized so you don’t end up exceeding your limits. The smallest tweek within your daily routine can be so empowering. On the 20th, the spring equinox brings the Aries Season and the beginning of the zodiacal year. Then Mercury enters your sign as well on the 27th. May this rebirth be on a soul level. Prioritize your well-being.

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.
