· Take action

· Try a little tenderness

· Restore the balance when it comes to fun, creativity and love!

 

Your reputation as the sign of action precedes you, Aries. Everyone associates you with feisty confidence, go-getting zeal and fiery sexiness. Yes, you’re the real deal and the whole package. But this is just the surface you. What you show to the world. This month takes us – or rather you, below the surface. To where so many more facets of you are hidden. The ones you don’t always let others see unless you truly trust them. Yes, that tender Aries heart. Okay, it’s our secret – which I can keep being an Aries. However, the red beating Aries heart is very much on display this month when it comes to your emotional life. The warrior princess or prince may just take off the armour and show their vulnerable side as 2018 begins. There’s a saying: in your weakness lies your strength. As a full Moon appears in your 4th on the 2nd it angles at ruler Mars in your 8th and Neptune in your 12th. Yes, it’s a Grand Water Trine. But for you, this brings an emotional watershed moment. Note that the planets are not just in their ruling houses in your chart but are in their ruling signs too (remember, you shared ruler Mars with Scorpio before Pluto was discovered!). Feeling vulnerable may vie with passion and then give way to compassion or empathy. You’re a soul-diver going deep and the depths of what you feel may surprise you as well as others. Don’t even try to hide it. Give yourself permission to feel whatever it is you feel and express it. Funny thing is nobody is going to see you as being weaker but marvel at your emotional strength and depth.

There’s power in all this passion you’re expressing and it can be channelled and seen as a resource if you want it to be. It has the ability to transform – both how you express and see yourself and your intimate relationships. The planet of ‘all change’ – Uranus moves direct once again in your 1st at the start of the month, aiding you with personal revolution. Reach for alternative ways of expressing yourself and also alternative and varied explanations as to why you feel the way you do. How many can you come up with and what resonates? You can then try this with other people in your life. What alternatives are available or what is another way of looking at the situation? The results can be life-and-relationship changing and radical to say the least. Oh, what a feeling!

With Saturn now firmly entrenched in his ruling house in your chart (10th), you are set to be an early beneficiary Yes, he is in here for the next 2.5 years but you can now get a head start on career path transformation for 2018. As Mercury enters your 10th on the 11th he is now very much out of retrograde shadow. His meeting with Saturn could signify career-elevating news or you now pushing forward with those moves for 2018. Venus meets Pluto in here perhaps getting those in authority to see you in an entire new light or your career path undergoing a beneficial transformation. Especially when we combine this with stellar aspects happening between your 10th house planets and ruler Mars and also Jupiter in your 8th which rules your salary and personal power. You have the power and the passion to bring to bear on forging your path and elevating your status in some way. Focus this for amazing results and watch for new beginnings at the time of the new Moon in here on the 17th. Venus enters Aquarius ahead of the Sun but now these two are in there it’s all about what you and you alone bring to any party – and this includes your professional sphere as well as your social sector. As Mars shifts in to your 9th on the 26th you’ve both the desire and the ability to expand your horizons. You may bring this to bear on your social life as well as your goals, pushing forward with a surety now that shows the world the confident Aries they know and love!

Since August last year all of us have been under the influence of the last eclipse. This tends to hang around until another eclipse brings the cycle to a close and then starts a new one. The total lunar eclipse on the 31st takes place in your 5th once more. It is unusual as this is a ‘blue’ Moon – meaning the second full Moon in a month but also a red ‘blood’ Moon due to it being eclipsed. To add to the impact here this eclipse also falls exactly conjunct Ceres in here. Romance, children, pleasure, adulation, seduction, recognition and creativity all come under the rulership of your 5th house. The focus is now firmly on passion. But with Ceres now in the mix there’s an element of compromise, having to give something up or restoring the balance of power. Sometimes this means letting something go – maybe something as simple as our ego. Ceres represents a change and a restoration to follow as a result of this. Perhaps your inner child needs to come out to play more – especially if you have been focussed on your career. Whatever happens, whether the passion manifests as something intensifying or something ending, this should be no surprise as when you look at it, you should see it’s been a long time coming. With Mercury entering Aquarius on this day this is not a day to withdraw processing emotions as with the full Moon at the start of the month. Instead reach out and get out and about if you can and feel the restorative process begin.

In a nutshell: Power and passion fuel you forward into the New Year! Get a heart-starter on career moves. And what makes your heart beat faster!

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.
