April 23, 2018
Business transactions and partnerships can be quite beneficial now, dear Aries, as support tends to be forthcoming, and combining your resources with a trusted someone can work to your benefit. Others tend to lend a hand, offering moral or financial support more readily. Your integrity is shining through, and this may be part of the reason for attracting prosperous circumstances. As Mars and Jupiter form a harmonious aspect, this is a time for combining energy with action and looking out for opportunities where you may not have seen them before. You're in an excellent position to pursue your goals directly and with confidence, and you're exceptionally resourceful. There can be a strengthening connection with a parent or boss, or you get yourself into an advantageous position to advance your interests. Timing is quite good today.

Today's Aries Horoscope by Patrick Arundell
(Aries 21 March - 20 April)
Monday 23rd April
Although you can enjoy a sparkling encounter, there is also likely to be a developing intensity that can be hard to miss. As dynamic Mars, your ruler, moves closer to merging with Pluto later this week, your attention may be focused on a goal or ambition to the exclusion of other activities or relationships. With adventurous Jupiter in the mix, a bold move may work out very well.

The Astrology of Today – All Signs
- Monday, APRIL 23 The Moon spends the day in outgoing, confident Leo. This is an expressive, generous transit. As the Moon forms a square to Jupiter tonight, we can be inclined to over-indulge. Today is influenced by a Mars-Jupiter sextile, exact early tomorrow, and we are enthusiastic about taking action to make changes and improvements. Decisive action comes naturally. We are more courageous and energetic than usual, and we can benefit greatly if we direct this energy into efforts to advance our goals. A spirit of friendly competition prevails as we seek to branch out and take on more challenges. This influence encourages enterprise and confidence for taking action on our convictions.

This Month: Aries
April 2018: Relationships are in strong focus as the month begins, dear Aries, but the major themes of the month are about you, your resources, confidence, work, and independence. As April begins, the Full Moon has just occurred in your partnership sector, and feelings have reached a head. You're discovering who and what you need, and this helps motivate you to get your act together! Venus has just exited your sign, and spends much of April (until the 24th) in your resources sector, harmonizing with heavyweight planets (Mars, Saturn, and Pluto) in your career and reputation sector, and softening what might otherwise be a rather brusque, tense approach to work or the public. In fact, your business acumen is attractive and appealing this month. Money is in good favor as well.
Mars spends the month in your solar tenth house, meeting with Saturn there on the 2nd and Pluto on the 26th just days after Pluto turns retrograde. Mars is in a good place by sign and house but is somewhat beleaguered until after the 26th, between a rock and a hard place (Saturn and Pluto) until then. You are ambitious but sometimes feel overwhelmed or stressed. Watch for pushing yourself too hard but do put in some real effort now. A conservative, step by step, law-abiding approach in business is necessary when Mars and Saturn meet at the top of your solar chart on the 2nd. You may need to lay down the law if you're in a position of authority. It might be necessary to make some personal sacrifices in order to get over a hurdle. Eliminating waste in your professional life can be especially helpful now, and you may need to face the reality or viability of a project/goal to know your next step. The key is to be patient and focus on the target. Try not to waste opportunities on battles and frustrations. Saturn and Pluto both turn retrograde this month, and this does mean that while there is a strong focus on your career and reputation, there is some need to review, reflect, and reorganize on these levels.
Mercury ends its retrograde in your sign on the 15th. Regarding work and health, you may be waiting on answers or returning to old problems in the first half of April. In the second half, however, an end is in sight or solutions are found. You can be feeling positive about your health, habits, and routines.
From the 10-14, exciting things are happening in your chart. Others can be especially intrigued by your point of view, talents, performance, or the services you offer professionally. This is a good time for showing the world your unique qualities and abilities. You are communicating with exceptional ease, and your powers of persuasion are strong. Events taking place now may stimulate your ambition and gently push you to do your best. You can be feeling quite motivated, particularly when it comes to business. Relations with others may be exciting, and enthusiasm runs high. Past good deeds or work can be rewarded or acknowledged now. Opportunities abound in your personal life, with career or major goals, and in financial or business arenas. There could be beneficial information or resources coming to you, and this may seem like serendipity. You feel pleasantly capable, competent, and ambitious.
All of this builds to a New Moon on the 15th, which occurs in your sign--a time of personal new beginnings and a chance to reinvent yourself. Chiron enters your sign on the 17th, and while this transit will be a long-term one, sticking with you for 7-8 years, it's not consistently in your sign until February 2019. Interestingly, the following month is when Uranus permanently leaves your sign! What this means is that there is a lot of work on the horizon involving healing and improving your image, body, self-confidence, and manner in the coming years.
From the 20th forward, financial matters are connected with your pride. Income and talents or resources are themes all month, in fact. Mars sextiles Jupiter on the 23rd, further boosting your confidence. People are more inclined to lend a hand, offering moral or financial support more readily, and you're getting in good with people in a position of authority or who can help you advance your interests. This is a time for combining energy with action and looking out for opportunities where you may not have seen them before. Timing is quite good. Venus enters Gemini on the 24th, bringing in a more social theme which was very much missing before this date!
The 25-26 is powerful for making your mark, learning or developing a talent that benefits your career, and going after your goals with gusto. You are determined. This may be a time of intensity in your career or with your reputation. You are in the position of leader. You can feel scrutinized now, but feedback may very well fuel your ambition to improve. Taking your ego out of the equation is essential now, although not very easy! You may be going at a project in an entirely new way or revitalizing something important to you. The Full Moon on the 29th provides excellent motivation for sorting out your finances or dependencies, and real strategies can emerge now.
This month, aim to be as calm as possible as there is aggravating, tense energy but also great news and happy moments -- in other words, ups and downs.
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
