Be an initiator

Mix it up!

Self-start yourself to success

Taking care of business is at the forefront of all you do this week as the Sun enters your sector of commerce and ideas. If a job change or even asking for that raise or promotion has been on your mind, this is the week to go for it. Mercury in your money house opposes Jupiter in your sector of personal power and salary. This is the ideal time to start something new especially with regards to your work , ideas or income.  You have the energy plus the attitude coupled with the ability to get your ideas across, sell in a concept or even sell in yourself if this is an interview situation. If you have been spending too much time indoors with that boxset, you are being given an invitation by the universe to get out and explore more. Connect – face to face and person to person – not online. Your neighbourhood, town or local environment has more to offer than you may think. Dig a little and you’ll quickly discover new ways to enjoy yourself and make new connections while you’re at it.

Ruler Mars in your social sector emphasises this. Time to mix it up socially. Just don’t fall into the trap of insisting on doing things your way which Mars in here can sometimes lure us in to. This can be an extremely exciting cycle especially as the Sun makes a wonderful, opportunity highlighting angle to your ruler from your 3rd on the 24th. The activities you enjoy with friends can make you feel renewed, energised and alive in a way that may have been missing for a while. This is also a great time to demonstrate to bosses or prospective ones, your ability to take charge or be a self-starter. Your mind is demanding more of a challenge and the outlet you need is action. Follow through and make your moves now.

monthly horoscope

Ditch the old ideas

What do you value most?

Connect to what really matters

May begins with one last opportunity to check whether you are still operating under old beliefs and limitations, Aries? Time to look back at the past seven years and see where you have broken free from old ways of thinking. By now you should have a radically different mindset to what you had when this cycle began. You now have time to make one fearless, final adjustment. Are you ready to draw on that warrior strength within and do this? Radical adjustments, revolutionary ideas about just what is possible for you should have provided an awakening during this time. By now you should feel unconstrained and unrestricted. If any limitations remain, check whether they are actually imposed on you or by you. Don’t be afraid to look back and examine this in order to move forward.

There’s a great deal of retrograde motion happening in the sky right now with Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto moving backwards. This will intensify during the next few months but there’s a purpose behind it all. To be able to see clearly where the shift has occurred and to use this to your advantage. Especially when it comes to your career during the first and second weeks of the month. Mercury the planet of commerce and communication in your 1st makes one final meeting with Uranus and also the Moon in your sign on the 12th and all three angle to ruler Mars in your 10th. The 12th and 13th offer pivotal opportunities for career progression. Not only to sell yourself and get your ideas across but to be seen in a leadership role if required. Where does leadership begin? In our own lives. Being aware of your evolution brings about confidence in your next step and confidence is what leadership is all about.

Your confidence in your talents, you values and how confident you are when it comes to material success is also about to undergo a revolution – or is that evolution? Notice how similar both words are. Revolution is merely evolution with an additional ‘r’. They are intrinsically linked and we can see this when we look back throughout history. When there has been any kind of revolution – whether intellectual, political, social, industrial or technical, this has always gone hand-in-hand with a huge leap forward. Even if at first the revolution itself caused upheaval and disruption. You are now standing on the eve of a massive evolutionary revolution when it comes to your money, assets, possessions, talents and your value system itself. This is heralded by first Mercury entering your 2nd on the 13th, a new Moon in here on the 15th – which could beam in financial rewards as it trines both Pluto and ruler Mars in your 10th, and the entry of Uranus into this house on the same day.

Expect an unprecedented shift in your values and what you consider valuable to occur over the next seven years or so now, Aries. There will be ups and downs with your finances but ultimately, you will be freer and also ahead – or you should be, when this cycle comes to an end. You are going to find that your attitude to your cash and savings or even money itself, will change. As this cycle begins, I would encourage you not to take out any extra loans or credit cards unless you can possibly help it. This is a cycle of liberation and that includes debt. Look at what you spend your money on and your disposable income especially. A good way to do this is to go to your closet. What do you wear regularly as opposed to things you have bought which you may have worn a couple of times and are unused? What did you buy on impulse, feeling you had to have it at the time only to regret it? It’s not just your wardrobe but all purchases you can apply this process to. Expect your spending patterns to shift as you start to buy only what gives you true value. Taking a flexible approach to money while redefining your financial goals are hallmarks of Uranus in our second. Above all however, don’t buy things you don’t need.  Recognising what these are will pave the way to freedom.

Kick-start the process in your fearless signature Aries way as ruler Mars shifts into your 11th (Uranus’s ruling house) and squares Uranus on the 16th. Are you buying in to other people’s values rather than you own? Are you buying ‘stuff’ to impress others or do you feel people judge you by how much money or possessions you have? Because your ruler is involved, you may come face to face with someone who brings up these issues for you. Are you telling yourself you’re ‘worth it’ for all the wrong reasons? Or do you value yourself enough not to burden yourself with debt? Expect a mindshift around this.

Bring all this on home baby, as Venus ruler of your 2nd, enters your 4th on the 19th connecting you to the beauty of what really matters and nurtures you. The revolution may quieten as a result as you connect to what is most important – love, family, friends and an environment that enriches and recharges you. Don’t be surprised if you commit more resources to this as a result. Again, this all relates to your values and what matters to you. The Sun’s entry into your 3rd from the 21st asks for backing up those ideas with action and also communicating those values when it comes to work and business.

The past seven years have been about reinvention as well as that evolutionary revolution I’ve been talking about. There has also been a sub—theme of unshackling yourself from whatever holds you back – whether you have been aware of this occurring or not. Think back at how many times things did not work out the way you wanted. And how despite this, things actually worked out better instead. This reinvention includes recognising now when it is time to change direction or just adopt an open mind that is unafraid to experiment with alternatives. Someone may offer one of these around the 24th when the Sun in your 3rd trines ruler Mars in your 11th. You may have to grab an opportunity that may just come out of left field or look vastly different to how you thought it would. There’s a sense of freedom building as the full Moon appears in your 9th on the 29th – the day before Mercury enters its ruling sign and ruling house in your chart. Travel, news or just taking a chance on something or someone could see you unshackled – and entering a new cycle where the old rules simply don’t apply any more.

In a nutshell: Your money, possessions, assets and above all, what you value are about to change. What do you own, what owns you and what is a non-negotiable? Set those values now, Aries!

Aries 2018 

HOLY MOLY! The Astrology of 2018 is going to be life changing! Since 2011, Uranus, the rebellious, unpredictable, genius has been in your sign. No doubt your life has had a revolution over the past seven years. On top of that, your world may have been plagued by instability and wild times. Hopefully, by now, you realise that there has been deeper meaning and opportunity in all the crazy events? Whatever you thought of as stable seven years ago has long since transformed. Mr Electric is not quite finished with you yet, so make the most of it, and awaken your genius within. Be the individual that you are and push your originality, especially in the first few weeks of this year.

2018 Astrology kicks off with a helping hand as Uranus turns direct on the 2nd giving you a final chance to break free from any chains that still hold you. With Mars your ruler joining forces with lucky Jupiter on the 7th in your subconscious shadow side, you are overcoming issues of powerlessness and grabbing the reins. Be careful of not chucking yourself into 2018 by being too dominant. When you seize command, make sure you do it honourably. Jupiter is in your power zone until November 2018 and is bringing you benefits (as long as you face your shadow side) and could turn your finances around. Jupiter is helping you deal with sexuality issues and helping you unleash your inner lover. Others find you compelling and magnetic. In fact, much of 2018 is about you coming into your sexual and financial power as well as facing and letting go of fear.

When Uranus enters Taurus on the 15th May, he brings a revolution to your security and finance. The good news is that it may be that he delivers a surprising success. Dramatic events force you to use your unparalleled flare while taking risks to succeed. You can also have extraordinary achievements with anything technology based. So write the blog, create the app and dare to do and allow your inner wizard out to play.

Uranus retrograde does nip back into your sign in November 2018 until March 2019. However, when he exits once more, the personal revolution that has taken place for you is now well and truly over as he takes up his usual seven-year stint in your 2nd. 2018 gives you a taster of what’s to come from 2019. Having said that you’re more equipped to handle whatever is thrown at you, as you’ve got used to his erratic ways. Keep your wits about you and expect the unexpected and think outside the crate!

Saturn the serious has already shifted signs and gone into his bosom buddy Capricorn. I expect we will see some shady goings on in the world of finance and a leaning towards conservative values. The old world order is about to change and with it your own attitude to your career and your reputation. I’m not saying you are going to become a part of the establishment or don a hipster suit to work, but you are going to get more serious about what you want to achieve.

In 2017 you lived a pretty free and bohemian existence, 2018 turns your attention to work and structure. Arrangements that are not working will be broken down. 2018 is not the year to cut financial corners, or invest in the cheese windmills of Siberia, but it is the year to go for an unusual idea with a practical approach. You are empowered with exceptional stamina. You have a renewed focus on achievement as this is the culmination of a 30-year cycle. What have you been building up to over the past 28/30 years? Watch what happens when Mars conjuncts Saturn on April 2nd giving you the stamina of a Game of Thrones dragon ridden by a Queen.

On the 6th March, Venus La Amore goes into Aries! March is your love magnet time, you ooze charm and have a way with lovers. Spring is the perfect month to attract a lover, heal a relationship and make peace and nurture yourself. Your view and experience of love elevates now. How are you going to make the most of Venus snuggling you? What do you want from love?

One of the big deals of 2018 is  Chiron, the wounded healer, going into your sign. Now Chiron is not technically a planet, he’s a Comet, but a pretty special one. He has a very irregular way of travelling the Universe. When Chiron comes to your sign it has massive spiritual significance; it’s time to heal your deepest wounds. Chiron’s wisdom is that our hurts have also given us gifts and he encourages us to recover and support others with the understandings we have learned along the way. Any dents in our ‘ego’, in our sense of self are healing.

The last time Chiron was in Aries was 1968 – 1977 a time of punk rock, feminism and all sorts of ‘fighting to be individual’. Martin Luther King was assassinated 3 days after Uranus went into Aries in 1968 and John F Kennedy was also murdered a few months later, both of these men changing the world in the process. We also landed on the Moon (allegedly haha). Chiron teaches us that our vulnerability is our strength. It’s an inner acknowledgement of where we have come from.

Mars your fiery ruler goes retrograde from the 26th June which might initially make you feel a bit Meh. The Fire King is in your social and collaboration zone. While Mars is doing his backwards slide, it might be worth taking time out and focusing on putting your personal energy into projects and work alone for a while. Don’t panic if you feel all Hermit-like, take the time to recharge. Mars will soon be back dragging you into the limelight from August 28th.

On the 8th November Jupiter Lord of luck and expansion enters Sagittarius and your house of adventure. From November onwards you’re about to become quite the swashbuckler! The Universe is bringing all sorts of travel possibilities, higher learning, a thirst for knowledge and treasure. The more you express your unique soul, the bigger the reward. Unusual and fascinating people are going to cross your path and show you a world of jewels you never knew existed! Get ready for a bigger soul stretching experience and see 2018 as your training ground to get you ready for what’s to come.
