Aries (21 March – 19 April)
Gemini season is up until the date of the Solstice, June 21st. Gemini rules communication in your horoscope and you may find yourself exceptionally busy, having to learn to multi-task and pick up the pace to get everything done.
You may be dealing with more correspondence than usual or have endless meetings, phone calls or interviews to attend. As this is also exam season, you might be swotting, revising and constantly learning.
In fact, whether you’re a student or not, this is an excellent time to pick up some new skills and keep your mind curious and lively. Sign up for a course, join your local library and keep the lines of communication open and flowing wherever you can.
The Sun and Mercury unite in Gemini on the 6th and there’s a New Moon in Gemini, a symbol of new beginnings on the 13th, an excellent date to initiate action and start something new. Gemini rules friendship in your horoscope and, in particular, making new friends.
This feels like a common theme for you this month because your ruling planet Mars is in another of the air signs, Aquarius. Aquarius rules friends, groups and social encounters in your horscope, so use your connections, your networks and get out and about and involved with other people. This is where you not only make things happen but find fulfilment too.
Your star sign Aries is fiercely independent but for some reason, it looks as if you need your friends, close alliances and the right people on your side.
This is particularly important for you because on the 26th, your ruling planet Mars turns retrograde and will remain on go slow until August 27th. This major event takes place approximately every two years and it’s important for you being Mars-ruled.
It means that your usual get-up-and-go is channelled in a different direction. Sometimes you find your energy lacking or, other times, you want to be on your own and need time to review and reflect on your current situation.
This could be when you’re considering your friendships, who’s important to you and why. You might be changing alliances or want to take your foot off the pedal with regard to a community project or group in which you’re involved.
Bear this in mind and don’t go over the top throughout June and take on too much. Knowing that Mars turns retrograde later this month means you’re wise to prioritise what’s important and not get too caught up with commitments and obligations to other people.
It also seems as if you need to consider what next in your life, another reason perhaps why you won’t have time to be overly involved in other peoples’ lives. Key planets are now moving through Cancer, the star sign at the base of your horoscope ruling your home and family, your past and where you come from.
Venus, the planet of relating, is here until the 13th, a lovely time to beautify your surroundings or enjoy time at home or with your family. Then, communication planet Mercury takes up the Cancer baton from the 12th to the 29th, when negotiations pick up speed, both with regard to property and family liaisons.
The most important shift, however, comes on the 21st when the Sun moves into Cancer for the subsequent four weeks. This is moving towards another key planetary event, a Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 13th. This suggests that change is likely for you in these key areas of your life. A change of residence perhaps or your family unit changing shape.
Also, there are now two important planets in Capricorn and your career and vocation sector. Saturn and Pluto are a power duo and they oppose the personal planets in Cancer on the 6th, 16th, 23rd and 27th of the month.
Also, the Full Moon on the 28th aligns with Saturn and cuts across the Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac. All of this together suggests that you’re going to feel stretched. You may be trying to juggle work and responsibilities with home and family commitments or you’re under pressure in some other way, perhaps from your boss or an imbalance in the hours you’re working.
You’ll know what this means for you personally and the best time of the month to take action is around the Full Moon. You can’t do everything now and this message is coming across loud and clear. Sometimes less is more, so bear this in mind moving forward.
One area of your life that could be going swimmingly is money, even if you do have unpredictable planet Uranus in Taurus and your personal money sector. It’s Jupiter, however, the big planet that’s potentially boosting your finances and subsequently your emotional well-being.
Events close to the 1st and 2nd, 19th and 21st could reveal more. Other people are involved here, whether you benefit from their generosity or you find a way to pool resources which makes life easier for everyone.
Don’t forget to have fun this month too as the air signs, Gemini and Aquarius, are friendly and light-natured. Plus, love planet Venus moves into Leo on the 13th and this spells good news for you. It highlights romance, although events close to the 21st could highlight a difference of opinion.
On the whole, however, the more you adopt a positive attitude to life and make the most of all the fun that’s available to you, the better. Tap into your playful Aries nature and hang with the kids.
