Today's Astro Highlight for Aries from Cafe Astrology
October 22, 2018
While there can be some worries or delays to deal with today, dear Aries, conversations can help you out tremendously. Others can be sounding boards for business or monetary strategies. It's also a time for recognizing problem areas in your thinking that need to be discarded and put behind you once and for all. Through problems arising now, you are learning how to prevent future ones! The Moon moves into your sign this morning, and personal or emotional needs can feel quite urgent. These can conflict with your practical goals right now, so you may need to strike a compromise. Tackling inner demons may very well involve some analysis now. You can benefit from uncovering secrets or investigating a matter more deeply. Verbalizing a fear may help take away its power.

Today's Aries Horoscope by Patrick Arundell
(Aries 21 March - 20 April)
Monday 22nd October
Big ideas may require some action, and yet you could feel a tad rebellious and not inclined to handle anything too complex or demanding. Chances are, you might need to handle any edginess before you head into key discussions. Something invigorating and fun, such as a hearty walk or jog, could help you feel settled and able to deal with issues that need a delicate touch.

This Month: Aries
October 2018 Monthly Horoscope Summary for Aries: Relationships are a major focus this month, dear Aries. All inner planets are in relationship sectors in your solar chart this month, although some are in your intimacy sector and this can boost your relationship with yourself just as much as an intimate connection. Mind you, Venus, the goddess of love, is retrograde from the 5th forward, and complications are likely. You may be rethinking your needs or those of a partner and dealing with debts from the past, too, since Venus spends most of October in your sector of shared resources. Take your time and don't push matters. Go over your finances carefully, get counsel if needed, and avoid disputes over money. Fortunately, you're likely to have some help. Recognizing the need for others is essential now, but avoid taking this point to dependency levels, especially given that Venus is retrograde and people can be a little distant emotionally.
One of the best news for you in October is about Mars, your ruler, as it's picking up the pace and getting back to its usual speed. This transit helps move things along after sluggish months and gives you at least the sense that things are moving ahead, even if retrograde Venus brings with it some delays. Your social life may have been on the dull side in recent months, and while the withdrawal or lack has not been a terrible experience for you, the liveliness that October and November bring to friendships may be quite welcome. Watch, however, for the drama level to rise too high, particularly with Venus' charm and people skills not working up to par. The tendency to push too hard or for social blunders is particularly strong around the 10th and 19th. If current relationships are not satisfying your deeper needs, there can be reactions now.
The New Moon the 8th is about a fresh start in a partnership or meaningful friendship. Alternatively, it's about better understanding your relationship needs and taking charge of this area of your life.
While it's not necessarily a time to sweep matters under the rug, some care should be taken with all love matters this month, particularly those surrounding shared finances and intimacy with Venus retrograde in your intimacy sector in October and then from November 1st to 16th, in your partnership sector. October is a good month for redesigning your budget, but it's not reliable for making big purchases. You could easily regret your purchases or relationship commitments later, so take the time to think about things before you leap forward. There can be upheaval or tensions related to money, possessions, or intimacy this month. A conversation may occur with a love interest or partner, but be aware that it can quickly spiral into unproductive patterns. Or, a conversation with a love from your past can be sparked up this month. If you receive further information about a past relationship, this can be eye-opening and help with closure. Even if things get nowhere or seem to go backward, it's a necessary process for illuminating where you stand and what you will take forward with you into the future. A bit of detachment can help you. While you can feel a little in the dark about your feelings until the 25th, after this date, new awareness and possibly the beginnings of a plan of action emerges. Intimate relationships can benefit from a fresh start or vision as you have recently redefined what you want and need from others, as well as what you expect from yourself.
The Full Moon on the 24th can serve as a wake-up call about taking charge of your finances.
With Jupiter on the last leg of its journey through your solar eighth house (it will move onto your adventure sector on November 9th), you may want to take full advantage of its powerful aspects at the end of October. This is a time for facing fears and breaking through taboos and can be a great time for receiving support or getting help. You can experience a real sense of joy through intimacy with someone special, or experience an emotional breakthrough of your own. You might experience a release from a private burden or a debilitating secret. There can be circumstances occurring now that allow you to put a past matter that has had a strong hold on you, behind you. Let in the positive energy now, and make room for new opportunities.
This Year: Aries
2018 Yearly Horoscope Overview
The year ahead is a powerful one for learning about and attending to your inner needs, resources and work more diligently, dear Aries. While you’re more outgoing towards the end of the year when Jupiter harmonizes with your sign (from November forward), 2018 holds terrific opportunities to improve, prepare, straighten out, and discover, especially in the worlds of work, intimacy, personal growth, and finances.
Until November, you’re in an excellent position for financial help or advice, dealings, and support. This can be an excellent time to work through tax or debt issues, gain support or backing for financial initiatives, or to combine resources with others or a partner. Agents or accountants among you can do particularly well this year, but so can all Aries on some level. A partner might be prosperous at this time. For some of you, increased awareness of mortality or a heightened awareness of how habits impact health can lead to making substantial lifestyle changes, living more joyfully, or a commitment to taking better care of health. In some cases, surgeries or procedures end a long-term health problem leading to improvements. There can be more joy in an intimate relationship or enjoyment of delving into your own psychological depths. These are examples of positive transformations that can happen as Jupiter graces your solar eighth house this year.
This is also an important turning-point period for your career, status, public life, or reputation. Saturn’s influence at the top of your solar chart points to a culmination, make-or-break situation, or increase in responsibility. Saturn wants you to catch up, fix areas of neglect or waste, and work hard (but not to excess).
Recognition for what you do or have achieved may come now, but from time to time, this can also feel like a lot of pressure or scrutiny for some of you. If you’ve cut corners, now is the time to make things right. There can be increased interest in what you do, and possibly some criticism or self-analysis involved as you figure out whether you’re on the right path. There may be some changes or adjustments in your career path or a pinnacle year for your work or reputation now. From now until 2020, you are at a career peak or turning point. It can be very worthwhile to work through challenges or demands involving a career that you know is your calling, as the improvements that result can benefit for many years to come. For some, this can be a time of increased responsibility related to parents, bosses, or teachers.
In 2018, you can benefit greatly from career support or backing. All year is excellent for publishing, media, teaching, and learning.
From May to August, it’s especially important to lay low and prepare rather than push new initiatives ahead.
A theme that’s been with you since 2011 is coming to an end, and while it will only be permanently behind you in March 2019, you’ll see some initial changes this year. This influence has put a lot of pressure on you to discover your independence in recent years, and changes in your life have been par for the course, whether these affected your relationships, work, or both. This pressure is easing now, and you’re likely to feel a little less fractured or on edge and a bit more relaxed. You no longer feel the need to make a splash when it comes to asserting your independence — you’ve achieved it and you’re ready to move on. A new theme entering your life this year involves changing your relationship with money or personal possessions, however, and this will play out more fully in years to come.
From November forward, you’re ready to explore, discover, and share. You begin a thirteen-month trend that finds you braver, more outgoing, bouncing back, and unflappably optimistic. Travel, education, and publishing are possible ways to expand your horizons now.

This Year in Love: Aries
2018-2019 Love Horoscope for Aries
Uranus continues to move through your sign but comes to the end of its approximately 7-year transit in May 2018, dear Aries. Even so, Uranus will dip back into Aries from November 2018 to March 2019 before moving on permanently.
This transit is most intense for those born April 17-20 or with an Aries Ascendant of 27 to 30 degrees of Aries. You are looking for freedom to express yourself, and you don’t want to feel confined. Independence tends to trump other drives in most areas of your life, including relationships! Relationships may be a little unstable as a result, but this theme is coming to an end this year.
For many of you, relationships have been regaining some of their magic after some years of a bit of disappointment. Intimate matters are brilliant in 2018 (until November 2018). You are discovering or rediscovering your deeper desires.
For those of you with Pluto challenging your Sun (those born April 8-11 and those with an Aries Ascendant between 18 and 21.5 degrees), dealing with anger and resentment is especially important. If you’re holding on to grudges, this can interfere with current or new relationships. Forgiveness is not an easy thing to do. However, it’s essential not only for your well-being but also for beginning any new relationship on the right foot. If you feel that you’ve been wronged, then it can be even more difficult, but focusing on forgiving a person rather than the actual wrongdoing might help.
Jupiter transits your intimacy sector from October 2017 to November 2018, bringing a huge boost to your intimate life. This is a time for more excitement, depth, and enjoyment under the covers, as well as a stronger connection with your deeper needs and desires. It’s a sexy, meaningful, and intimate time for many Aries.
People help you during this period (from October 2017 to November 2018). You may be less independent than usual, but this is can be a wonderful thing as you open up to others’ involvement in your life. This is particularly true for those born in the first two decans of Aries – Uranus is no longer putting pressure on you to carve your own path. There tends to be more ease and flow to the deeper aspects of any love relationship. You are more natural and open when it comes to sharing yourself on intimate levels. Your intimate life can feel richer and more rewarding. You may be opening up to new ways of expressing your inner world or sexuality. This is a time for slowing down and enjoying the more languid moments of relationships. There can be someone who helps open you up to new ways of relating. Sexual opportunities are likely to abound, or your focus on one partner becomes more expansive, warm, and intimate. Your private life may feel like a magical secret garden at times during this Jupiter transit that lasts until November 2018.
A new influence this year: Saturn is putting pressure on you via a square aspect to your sign. In 2018, this affects those born in the earlier portion of Aries – the first decan of Aries. In 2019, the second decan of Aries will feel this most intensely.
Saturn’s influence can feel like a whole lot of pressure when it’s coming at you by a square and transiting your career and life standing sector. People in your life are dealing with a perhaps tenser or more stressed “you.” Saturn is putting pressure on career and reputation matters this year, and responsibilities can feel weighty at times. Those Aries affected by a Saturn square to their Sun in 2018 (born March 20-30) and in 2019 (March 31-April 10) can feel unsupported at times, and a heavy or negative manner might impact their ability to meet others if they are not careful. People in relationships with Aries probably need to be understanding of Aries’ hyperattention to their life path, goals, ambitions, and careers as they have the two astrological heavyweights, Saturn and Pluto, intensifying and often pressurizing these matters this year and until 2020.
Jupiter’s transit of your spirit and adventure sector, and harmony with your sign, from November 2018 to December 2019 definitely helps take some of…cont’d
