How can you benefit when the Sun in Aries? Aries is ruled by Mars, the red planet, creating heat and energy. Be physical and competitive; train for a marathon, experiment with hot yoga, work up a sweat, fight for your rights and chase promotion. Aries likes to be first so take the lead… in love, on stage, at your kids’ school, at work.
This month there are a host of planets in Aries, the first sign of the zodiac; they are the Sun (identity), Mercury (communication), Mars (action), Jupiter (faith) and Uranus (change). Another name for Uranus is the “great awakener” and if you look back to last year when Uranus was in Aries from 27th May-13th August 2010, you may get an idea of what this planet symbolises in your own life. On 12th March 2011, Uranus returned to Aries where it remains for the next seven years. So what can you expect over the next few years and how can you make the most of Uranus, planet of change, in Aries, sign of the individual.
Rouse your rebellious streak. You’re the white knight of the zodiac so fight for your rights, stand up for what you believe in and be true to your personal code of ethics. Where in your life will you do battle to champion a good cause and defend the weak? You’re not afraid to shock or behave outrageously.
Your inner self is due a transformation. Experiment with spiritual or inner work to heal yourself and experience a deeper connection to the world around you. Your sense of touch, your hands or your singing voice are the key to your creativity and are miraculous tools that can help other people as well.
Take risks with your friendships and social involvements. Go out on a limb and befriend people who are quirky, eccentric and make your life more interesting. The power of the group intensifies your desire to initiate action; it’s also more fun than doing it alone. Use the internet to cook up a storm.
There’s a feeling of ‘now or never’ in your stars as Uranus encourages you to go out in to the big wide world and face your public. Starting your own business – tick; boosting your status or reputation – tick; there’s never been a better time to play big or marry well. Show family and friends the real you.
Start to experiment and do things differently especially if you have a desire to travel or make your mark in your chosen field. Decide how you will leave your imprint on the world: write a bestseller, share your wisdom, teach the next generation, work for a charity abroad, but ultimately explore life to the full.
You have an opportunity to deepen your understanding of life and pursue a philosophical or spiritual path. Your relationship with money changes as your desire for freedom challenges your attachment to a regular income, mortgage, debts or investments. You want your life to be transformative not routine.
With Uranus in your marriage zone, anything goes… literally! A spur-of-the-moment engagement, a complete fresh start in love, a self-imposed period of celibacy; you may even surprise yourself with your love choices. Don’t rule out the “out of the question” boy/girlfriend or the one that got away!
Revolutionise the way you work and do things differently. Uranus is the techie planet so get up-to-date with the latest modes of communication and internet marketing. Find a unique trend or product and sell, sell, sell. Jazz up your health and fitness routine too – anything unusual fits the bill.
Your creativity is about to hit overdrive so follow your passion and go where your heart leads. Now’s the time to explore your talents and make the most of your natural born abilities. Kids too are big news whether it’s an unexpected pregnancy, a chance to adopt or a special friendship with a child you teach.
You’re a traditionalist at heart but with Uranus in your home zone, be more adaptable to an alternative arrangement. You may take in a lodger, live alone for the first time, share your home with stepchildren or live amongst a community. Research your family tree and discover some remarkable descendants.
Do your bit for society, promote a humanitarian organisation and find your voice backing an environmental issue. Your mode of transport reflects your right-on views as you get on your bike or opt for an electric car. Ups and downs with a brother or sister may escalate so learn to be flexible.
Money comes in quickly but can go out just as fast now you’re more willing to lead an entrepreneurial lifestyle and take financial risks. The 9-to-5 routine holds no interest for you as you turn in to a financial whiz kid and learn all about stocks and shares and internet trading. A career in forecasting beckons.
