(Aries 21 March - 20 April)
Wednesday 21st February
The steadying energy of the Taurus Moon, along with another more focused aspect, can entice you to stay grounded in situations in which there may be confusion. You are being encouraged to stick with the facts where possible, as this might help you to navigate through areas where uncertainty makes life difficult. It may be wise to avoid making snap decisions if you can Aries.

This Month: Aries
January & February 2018: The New Moon on January 16th is a powerful one for matters related to reputation, career, position, and life-path goals, dear Aries. There is an unusually strong showing of planets, including heavyweights Saturn and Pluto, at the top of your solar chart, suggesting a significant new beginning or emphasis on any (or many) of these aforementioned themes. The weeks following are important for making changes and tweaks to your work and goals so that they're more realizable and fulfilling in the long run. This emphasis occurs in the sign of Capricorn, after all -- a sign that has its eye on what matters in the long term -- and to reap its rewards, you pretty much have to think like a Capricorn regarding professional and reputation matters right now.
Supporting your goals are Mars and Jupiter in your intimacy sector. You'll find it easier than usual to get the backing you need and to draw upon your own inner well - your strength and persistence come shining through in January, and you may very well gain recognition or reward for work you've put in through the years, not only recent efforts. You're strategic until January 26th, after which you are your direct, straight-to-the-point self.
Uranus in your sign competes with all of these planets at the top of your chart, and your own independence and desire for personal freedom might often feel at odds with what you feel you need to do for others or to advance your professional goals. This is a long-term issue that you're familiar with but is especially pressing mid-January, after which you find it easier to fill both needs without too much conflict.
Mid-January is also a time for the exact aspect of Jupiter and Pluto -- a wonderful influence that will play out until September and that helps you tune into your ambitions and goals so well that you end up making all the right moves to realize them. This is a powerful time for putting more resources (cautiously) into your work, career path, or life path goals, and perhaps receiving some solid support for doing so. It's an excellent time for working on transforming your work or image in careful, calculated ways that have long-term viability. Strategy works! This theme extends to your intimate life and finances, as well, and you'll enjoy it for the first nine months of 2018.
The Lunar Eclipse on January 31st is the second Full Moon in January (there are none in February) and reinforces themes that began mid-2016. A Lunar Eclipse happened in the same area of your solar chart in February 2017, and another (the final one) will occur in February 2019. This set of eclipses awakens your need for friends, community, and fresh dreams to believe in, and this particular Lunar Eclipse can prompt a revelation about romance, children, or creative endeavors.
In the middle of February, a Solar Eclipse occurs in your friendship sector, and it's time to begin anew. This may point to a new connection or a reconnection. In fact, February brings a lot of interest to your happiness goals, social life, and networking or community activities. It's a great time to plant a seed or begin a project (after a week has passed) that blossoms in the summer. As the month progresses, a period of extra rest, recovery, healing, and reflection comes into focus. This period helps you prepare for the birthday year ahead of you.
Standout days in February include the 6th for good news and favorable connections, as well as the 21st and the last two days of February, which are brilliant for you for work efforts, emotional confidence, and support or backing. Past efforts are rewarded. You have more faith in general regarding your career and the direction in which you are headed. Superiors or partners back you now. An intimate connection or a new understanding of a past connection boosts you.
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
2017-2018 Love Horoscope for Aries
Uranus continues to move through your sign, dear Aries, and will be most intense for those born April 6-14 or with an Aries Ascendant of 16.5 to 24.5 degrees of Aries. You are looking for freedom to express yourself, and don’t want to feel confined. Independence tends to trump other drives in most areas of your life, including relationships!
However, a once-every-twelve-years transit begins in September 2016 that has the potential of real joy coming through a partnership. This thirteen month long influence is strong for one-on-one relationships. For some, this is a business or special friend setup, and for others, it’s about love. This is one of the stronger influences for relationship boosts. Whether you’re attracting a new partnership, enhancing and building a current one, or releasing yourself from a difficult relationship, there is a stronger feeling of fulfillment in the relationship department during this cycle that lasts from September 2016 to October 2017.
This influence is strong for meeting with someone from a vastly different cultural background than yours, or met through travels, higher education, or long distance, possibly through the internet. This can also be a time when shared beliefs, interests, and ideologies are a focal point in a close relationship. For some, a significant person comes into your life with common educational goals or belief systems, possibly through long-distance connections, schools, or publishing/online activities. For many of you, you are attracting people who want to help, who are on your side, and who take a strong interest in you.
Last September, Saturn firmly left your intimacy sector and began harmonizing with your sign, and this continues in 2016 and 2017. You’re feeling far less inhibited when it comes to getting close to someone. This influence brings greater stability to your life in general, and also relieves some pressure on intimate expression, shared finances, and issues of control in a partnership. Certainly, after close to three years of this, you’ve learned a lot about your limits. Some of you have experienced some level of disenchantment regarding one-to-one relationships. In fact, it has been since late 2009 that partnerships have gone through tests and trials, and you’ve learned much about what you want (and don’t want) from close relationships. You may have met the more unflattering side of people, and possibly of yourself if you struggled with relationship problems, and now you’re moving forward, ideally older and wiser for it all.
Mars is retrograde from April 17-June 29, 2016, and this affects you quite directly because Mars is your ruler. The retrograde occurs for some of this period (from May 27-June 29) in your intimacy sector, and this points to a return to a previous condition in your intimate life before you’re ready to move forward and break new ground.
During the Mars retrograde cycle, you don’t assert yourself or state what it is that you want as directly as you normally do, and you could be withdrawn and introspective, pulling back from life a little as you figure out what it is that you truly want from it. Because of the retrograde, Mars spends an unusually long time in your intimacy and spirit sectors. You are doing very important “work” that can benefit you greatly. Conflicts about give and take in an existing partnership can be stimulated. It’s a good time to assess what it is that you have been doing on “auto pilot”, how you have been asserting your needs and desires, and how you have been dealing with anger – all of this so that you can make improvements.
For those of you with Pluto challenging your Sun (those born April 4-8), 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 but 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.
Venus does not retrograde during this period but will do so partly in your sign in 2017 (from March 4th to April 15th, 2017). More on that later!
A relationship-themed eclipse set that began in October 2013 ends in March 2016. This March 2016 Lunar Eclipse occurs in your partnership zone and can bring epiphanies about partnerships – it’s time to clear up past patterns that have been holding you back from personal fulfillment, particularly those that are relationship-centered or that revolve around your confidence, boldness, and authenticity of expression. This is the final thrust that tends to force action.
