KnowAries May ’22 Scope

Key Themes: Love, relationships, self-initiation

You’ll be feeling the love this month Aries. Venus enters your sign on the 2nd, where it will remain until May 28th. This means you might be feeling more confident, empowered and ready to dive deeper – or to explore new relationships. It could also simply mean that love, relationships and beauty are more at the forefront of your awareness. If you’ve been procrastinating or avoiding putting yourself out there, now’s the time to shoot your shot.

On May 10th, we begin our Mercury retrograde through its home sign of Gemini (until June 3rd). Despite the pop astrology noise about this transit – it doesn’t tend to be as disastrous as many people think! For you, this retrograde will rather highlight incongruence and misalignment in your realms of communication, and this illumination can be seen as a gift. It’ll be a good time to focus on the ways that you assert your truth – and where gaps lead to consequences that you’d rather not have in your life anymore.

Also on the 10th, you’ll experience an auspicious influx of cosmic energy. Jupiter enters your sign… and it’s like synchronicity, luck, and opportunities are turned up a gear. This transit essentially presents you with a six-month portal of expansion – it’s up to you how you choose to use this. For a clue: a big part of Jupiter energies are all about aligning our life paths with divine meaning and purpose. It’s influence tends to open up themes of travel, philosophy and adventure. Get ready!

On May 16th, we continue eclipse season with a Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in the sign of the subconscious realms;  Scorpio. This Eclipse will illuminate your depths Aries, to say the least. It’ll be a potent time to pay close attention to your triggers – and indeed they might be boiling up to the surface. Rather than acting on them, make a conscious effort to observe them with objectivity and curiosity. You’ll be able to use this period to learn more deeply about yourself, the truth of who you are and what you truly want. You’ll be able to see what’s working for you, and what’s not – initiating a sacred process of release.

Good timing for it, because on May 24th Mars enters your sign (its home sign), until July 5th. This is like a cosmic charge-up! You’ll be feeling more energized, inspired and motivated than you have for quite a while. Most importantly, you’ll be feeling more like yourself. This will invoke the perfect time to get any plans off the ground, to be active and bring your desires into fruition. Be careful to avoid scattering your energy – you’ll have a lot of it – so be sure to direct this with intention! Complimenting these energies further is the New Moon in Gemini on May 30th. This moon brings you into an experimental and mentally expansive period. You might notice an increase in diverse opinions, influences and energies around this time – and you’re encouraged to take it in. As humans we do naturally receive inspiration from others; and sometimes our worst interactions simply sharpen our ideas of what we do not want. If you maintain a balance of openness and discernment here, you’ll be rewarded.

KnowAries April ’22 Scope

Key themes: New beginnings. Intentionally catalyzing change in your life. Creating a positive impact on the world around you.

The bulk of this month is Aries season, with the sun in your powerful sign. This means the cosmic spotlight is on you! It’s a fresh new chapter in your journey; a time for wrapping up loose ends, and birthing new visions.

April kicks off with a New Moon in your sign, furthering this theme. You might be feeling either restlessness or infused with motivation in the days surrounding it. Aries, your sign reflects the very human phenomena of Desire: you came here to (amongst other things) create, and enact your will upon the world – to see your manifestations come to life in magical and powerful ways. This will be a huge part of what fills your cup, and 2022 can be your year.

In fact, the new astrological year only actually starts at the beginning of Aries season, so this is a fresh start on all levels. You can use this blank slate energy to deeply connect with your powers of creation, in a brand-new way. More specifically, connecting with creating what YOU want to see and experience in the world.

With Venus entering Pisces on April 5, we see the planet of Love exalted to its highest state. The world might (finally) start to feel a little bit more connected, loving and capable of change.

There’s a message here for you Aries, about trusting the divine unfolding, whether it seems problematic from a human perspective or not. This doesn’t mean simply becoming a bystander to injustice – after all, your sign carries the archetype of the spiritual warrior. It’s more about recognizing that sometimes, darkness and gunk have to arise in order to be healed and transformed. It’s all part of a process.

This may feel particularly highlighted, as we have Pluto going retrograde towards the end of April. Global, national and personal events of the last months may have already been shocking and upsetting, and to feel this reaction is perfectly natural. However, remaining in a space of overwhelm will prevent you from moving into a state of empowerment. This will limit your perspective, and your ability to shape your own circumstances.

Rather, try and consciously use any discomfort, anger and frustration – to shift you directly in the opposite direction. What steps can you take to bring about positive change in your life, and the world around you? Remember Aries: you’re just as capable of creating change, as the most powerful revolutionaries that have come before you.

We’re in an incredible decade of global and collective transformation, where as much is being built as it is destroyed. Be mindful of getting lost in the chaos, because there really is silver lining all around you. You might become extra aware of this on April 8, where Jupiter comes into a harmonious connection with the Lunar North Node. On this day you’ll likely receive some inspiration, or maybe a feeling of lightness and expansion – regarding the future and your place in it.

On the 16th, the Full Moon casts a light on your relationships reminding you that you don’t have to figure this all out alone – to lean on friends and loved ones, to inspire and uplift you when and if  the burden becomes too much.

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.

If you’re feeling down, make sure to speak kindly and compassionately to yourself.

I open up to the knowledge that feeds my mind and my heart. I become more interested in how my beliefs sustain me through life’s challenges than in my desire to win or lose. I speak the truths that will inspire others to connect with their own.
