This is your solar revolution, Aries. Cheers to another blessed trip around the sun! Your birthday season is in full effect, but with Mercury the messenger sitting so close to dreamy Neptune, who tends to be somewhat unrealistic, the vibes have been a bit moody and evasive, and well…nobody got time for that, Aries. However, not to worry, as the ambiguous fog will start to clear, and right around the new moon, which also happens to be in your sign! Anyway, as you know, new moons bring new beginnings, but this lunation will be highly influenced by structured Saturn, and powerful Pluto, as they are hovering over your tenth house of career, reputation, and authority figures. For instance, where do you feel like your power is being taken away from you? FYI: The intentions you set now, could potentially come to fruition during the full moon in Aries in October 2019. Where have you been lacking confidence? Despite your fear of failing, there’s really nothing wrong with being vulnerable every now and then, Aries. In fact, your challenge for this lunation, if you choose to accept it, is to remember to stay humble, despite your controlling personality, and relentless desire for victory. Don’t be so hard on yourself, as there is something so much greater guiding you on your path to greatness. On that note, may this be the beginning of yet another breakthrough, as well as one step closer to living your best life. Speaking of which, lucky Jupiter will begin its retrograde cycle through your expansive ninth house of foreign lands, philosophy, and higher education on April 10. Remember, Jupiter is the planet of abundance, expansion, and inspiration, so this retrograde cycle will simply elongate the process of self discovery. What’s stopping you from spreading your wings, and crossing the pond? Jupiter retrograde wants to expand your mental and spiritual horizons, but it’s going to require that you take a leap of faith in the process, Aries. Moreover, themes related to education, travel, and publishing, (that began this past November) will likely resurface during this time. Take this time to digest all that you’ve experienced thus far. Next, Mercury the messenger joins the sun in your sign on April 17, inspiring bold, direct, and impromptu ways of communicating. This will certainly be the case for you, as your ruling planet Mars will be traveling through curious Gemini, making a sextile with Mercury in your sign. Write. Communicate. Mingle with your local neighborhood. The full moon in Libra on April 19, will illuminate your seventh house of partnerships, and one-on-one connects. BTW, this is the second full moon activating your relationship sector, as the first took place last month on the spring equinox. What have you been negotiating, or perhaps learning compromise with, since? Single Aries babes could decide to make things official, while others come face-to-face with important truths regarding their relationship. The sun shifts into sensual Taurus the following day, and its ruler Venus makes a show-stopping debut in your sign. This delicious surge of energy will spark joy, and enhance your overall sense of pleasure. Although, with the sun sitting close to Uranus in Taurus, some of you might experience a eureka moment, or sudden epiphany regarding your finances, possessions, and self-worth. Don’t make any big moves just yet, as Saturn and Pluto will retrograde through your ambitious tenth house of career, and destiny in the world. Not to worry, Aries. These celestial bad boys are simply restructuring your perception of leadership, while redefining your long-term goals.
