Skymates, for the past few weeks Venus, the Planet of Love, has been in the grounded sign of Capricorn, teaching us how to cultivate more patience when it comes to love and money. Now that we’re in the final stretch of this transit, we may be reflecting on key themes Venus helped us learn this month. Aries, it’s okay to be more strict with people you’re collaborating with on financial or professional engagements. Sometimes they assume that because you’re so fun-spirited you won’t take things seriously, but tomorrow’s Full Moon in Leo wants you to take things seriously, because that’s what’s setting you up for long-term growth and success.
Today’s astrological weather is charged with electric, rebellious energy. It may be more challenging to focus on every day tasks — all signs will be feeling an urge to break free from the status quo. Specifically for you, Aries, a part of you is ready to leave the nest, whether that means literally getting ready to move somewhere else, or suddenly deciding that you’re not going to do things the same anymore, either at work or in your social life. With Mercury Retrograde around the corner, you’d be advised to slow your roll when making impulsive decisions, while also honoring the emotions that are coming up for you right now. Perhaps working out or making love can serve as a healthier outlet for your internal restlessness?
The Moon starts off void in Gemini this morning, making it an ideal time to tie up loose ends on fun tasks rather than start something new. Then once the Moon shifts into Cancer later today, we’ll collectively be feeling heightened sensitivity and emotion. Aries, the Cancer Moon activates your sector of roots, so you may find yourself seeking to reconnect with your inner child today. What are some of the passions and interests they’ve been craving to do more of? This would be an ideal week to explore those paths and let yourself indulge in passion play. Chiron’s placement in your sign will lead to you literally crying down the line if you keep denying yourself the fun that you deserve.
With Mars and Jupiter having recently squared off with each other, and the Moon being in Gemini as the weekend begins, we may collectively feel like there’s so much we want to do this weekend. But it’s important for us to focus on what truly matters. Aries, as someone ruled by Mars, you know that you love to jump in on the action. But what exactly is your intention as you take this leap? This weekend you’ll find yourself going over new moon intentions you may have set about 10 days ago, and assessing which ones you still feel quite passionate about. Those are the ones you should dedicate your time and attention to, rather than trying to do it all at once.
With the asteroid Ceres making a square to the lunar nodes today, we are being asked to make sure we’re not overextending ourselves in the name of generosity. It’s important to give to others, but it’s also essential to make room to receive. Aries, as you decide what you’re ready to commit to this year, it’s important that you think of what will benefit you in a more sustainable way. With your ruler Mars still in Taurus, you’re feeling the need to ground yourself and slow down. That may mean having to say no to opportunities that aren’t really meant for you, even if they at first seem like they are.
Today the Moon and Mars align in Taurus, and that can collectively bring out our stubborn sides, as well as our desires to pursue our inner passions. Then later the Moon and Jupiter conflict, asking us to make sure we’re not stretching ourselves too thin. Aries, it may be time for you to restrategize when it comes to what you give your attention to, particularly when it comes to making money. How much of it is truly fulfilling, and how much of it are you doing simply because it appears to be the most financially beneficial option? Make sure you’re focused on doing what you love, rather than finding a quick path to wealth. The more sustainable your dreams and endeavors, the better.
