Aries, this is Chiron’s first full week retrograde in your sign, so take it easy and try your best to decrease the amount of pressure you tend to place on yourself. Your ruler Mars is still in Leo for a while longer, but you may get burnt out on Monday – Wednesday when the Sagittarius Moon encourages you to do everything at once. Mid-week, the Capricorn Moon helps you slow down and take things step by step, and this can lead to you achieving a professional breakthrough. By the time the Aquarius Full Moon strikes on the 24th, your communication sector will be activated, helping you express yourself and your needs in more revolutionary and straightforward ways. In order to get what you want you have to be daring enough to ask for it directly.
Aries, you are working through your relationship with yourself this week. Chiron retrogrades through Aries for the next two weeks, activating your 1st house of self. At the same time, Pallas retrogrades through your 12th house of spirituality and the subconscious. Welcome this reflection period with open arms; there won’t be much time for musing during Leo season. Right now, you have the opportunity to see how you honor or neglect aspects of yourself, which showcases to others how they may honor or neglect you. This understanding will flow effortlessly into the evaluation of your past for the next few weeks. Get clear on what you need from yourself, and the relationships around you will follow suit.
Aries, this week is all about self-mastery, and working from the inside out. It’s one where things might just fall together… if you let them. On Wednesday we’ll all experience a sense of clarity and coming full circle with Mercury officially ending the shadow period of its retrograde. This retrograde carried themes of mental comprehension for you Aries, so watch that space. Friday your focus will shift into your emotional realms, with the New Moon in its home sign of watery Cancer. It’s time to make plans, set intentions and set the stage for manifestation within this six-month lunar cycle. For you, the focus will be on enhancing your family life, relationships, safety, and security. What can you do, to feel at home wherever you are? Mercury moving into Cancer on Sunday furthers this theme. It’s time to be honest with yourself, and others about the state of comfort within your inner world.
This first full week of Neptune Retrograde is likely to have you deeply in touch with your spirituality, Aries. The Pisces Moon Monday – Wednesday helps you own up to your insecurities in order to transcend them. Then once the Moon shifts into your sign mid-week, you’re likely to attract exactly what you’ve been yearning for. All you had to do was be patient. This weekend’s Taurus Moon helps you get your financial life in order, but a part of you may feel stressed or overwhelmed on Sunday due to several planetary squares, including one between the Moon and your planetary ruler Mars. The key is to break things down into manageable action items and chip your way at them instead of trying to do it all at once. Breathe, remain centered, and cry if you need to. Chiron, an asteroid that symbolizes our inner wounds, is in your sign and it’s here to help you flow through this period of change.
Let’s celebrate, Aries! Hopefully, we all made it through the first eclipse season of 2021 relatively unharmed. As we enter Cancer season, this is the perfect time to slow down, take a breath, and reflect on the first half of the year. Because now that Mercury is direct, you are going to be moving full throttle, Aries. So enjoy the slower pace of retrograde season while you can. And use the inspiration of the full moon in Capricorn to supercharge your career goals for the next six months. Be intentional with this time…this energy manifests quickly!
The main astrological aspect of the week is the Saturn-Uranus square on Monday, which will be felt all month long. Then on Sunday, Cancer Season begins, marking the start of summer in the Northern Hemisphere. Aries, these final days of Gemini Season will help you deepen your communication with self. Monday and Tuesday’s Leo Moon help you be honest about what you’ve been avoiding. Then mid-week, you’ll feel yourself focused on creating a sustainable routine under the Virgo Moon. This weekend’s Libra Moon is ideal for romantic rendezvous or creative expression, Aries. You’ll feel aligned with the seasonal shifts once Cancer Season starts this Sunday, and more in tune with your own needs.
