Open a special kind of magic and power

Know what you want before taking action

Are you ‘The Fairest’?

Happy birthday, Aries. Your new cycle has a lot to do with pausing before moving forward, Yes, that  goes against the grain with for you. But Mercury retrograde in your 1st until April 15 is asking you to look back, revise, revisit and re-evaluate what you want before moving ahead. That does not mean to say that progress isn’t possible. You’ve big planetary implications for what’s already in motion. Especially when it comes to your career and bringing things to a conclusion in this area. Ruler Mars, Pluto and the black Moon Lilith are all in your 10th of rewards and reputation. All three are involved in power in its varied forms. Take the upsurge of energy that’s available to you now and channel it into those career goals. Used correctly, you’ve the ability to take this and project confidence and leadership skills. You’re ambitious and willing to work harder than usual to get results. Just ensure you remain organised and disciplined. You’ve got an almost inexhaustible supply of energy available to you when it comes to your career. Just work within established structures and be seen as a team player. Scatter your energy or insist on doing things your own way too often and you’ll find yourself becoming frustrated or meeting opposition.

Ceres heads direct in your 5th this week after a retrograde period and you may have found yourself in the position of late of looking at what you want from love. Has romance lived up to your expectations? Venus in your 1st meets up with Eris in your sign this week while the Sun trines Ceres. Now in mythology, Eris set in motion the events leading up to the Trojan War by throwing an apple at a gaggle of goddesses marked ‘For the fairest’. Now, as Venus is associated with love and beauty, we might have thought she would have been secure enough in the knowledge that this was indeed her to allow one of the others to have the apple. But no. An argument ensued between her, Athena and Hera about how the apple was meant for. All three missed the point that the apple was not about them but actually about Eris and her insecurities as she felt snubbed by not being invited to a wedding this insecure lot were attending. My point? If love has failed to live up to expectations is the solution to raise yours? Or if someone shows an interest in you, do you wonder why? Ditch the insecurity and know ‘For the fairest’ means you now.

monthly horoscope

Revisit the past but don’t stay there

Open up to love

Examine something in the bold, blue light of truth

The weeks leading up to your birthday unearth secrets and mysteries. It may not just be the secret you’re keeping but what has been kept from you. It’s your time to know and to see things for how they really are. By doing this you will free yourself and open up new potential. It’s all designed to shed blockages and free you for what lies ahead in the coming year. Which believe me is going to be pretty huge. It begins with Mercury deliverer of information in your 12th acting as a catalyst to ruler Mars in your 9th. You may face hard truths about yourself and possibly another. But the result is a massive leap forward and a catalyst for change.

Expect intense emotions as March begins as after a month without a full Moon, we have the first of two ‘blue’ Moons on the 2nd. This occurs in your 6th of work and also wellbeing. This is the house opposite your 12th obviously and what you may find is that there is a delayed but powerful reaction to this that peaks emotionally for you around the 4th when the Sun meets Neptune in your 12th. This is when something hidden may well ‘come to light’ and it could affect your work or see you having to look closely at how this or your routine, impacts on your soul. This may call for a radical re-design or even a shedding of anything from a connection to a habit. But the result of this could in fact be beautiful as before Mercury and Venus enter your 1st they meet in your 12th bringing a link to your past and marking the beginning of new potential in love.

The past may play a role but it may be just that you re-frame it as it now really is the time to begin to set yourself new goals for your upcoming cycle. Think of this as when you undertake a soul business plan in very much the same way as you would an actual one if you are launching a business. And perhaps that is one of your goals for the coming year. No matter what direction you want to go in and what you wish to attain, you need a plan. It’s time to follow the direction of your passion. Have you been doing that?  Jupiter in your 8th is asking you to take stock of what you have, what you want to attain and also your ideas around your ability to achieve this as the planet of expansion and luck begins a retrograde cycle which will last until July. Part of this stock take could be looking at how powerful and proactive you are. Not just in going after your goals but in maintaining your boundaries. Ruler Mars is presently in your 9th – Sagittarius, while Jupiter is in your 8th – Scorpio, which before Pluto was discovered, was Mars’s ruling sign. Jupiter rules your 9th and Sagittarius. So, Mars and Jupiter right now are in what we call ‘mutual reception’. Even though Jupiter is retrograde, you can access inner strength, power and the ability to draw the line if needed. You also have staying power to see things through – and to follow that business plan once you have it. You’ve got access to action and innovation now but this could involve going back over things and also looking closely at where you may have to enforce boundaries  especially around anything you share with others. Or perhaps even yourself. Self-discipline is power and you can access this now.

The second week of March leading up to your birthday asks for you to look at your past but to be compassionate with yourself if you have any regrets about it. The new Moon in your 12th asks you to apply empathy, forgiveness and understanding and also allows you to access insight and healing and direct this to yourself. Understand it is good sometimes to have regrets as these tell us we have moved forward and learned from the experience. What is not good however is to beat ourselves up over the choices we made. We need to understand we made the best one with the information and skills we had at the time. Put the past into perspective with this new Moon, pour yourself a healing draught of self-love and then move on. That part is important as ruler Mars enters your 10th of career, reputation and renown today. Your ambition and desire to succeed gets ignited now. It is back to those goals and what you want and you need to be free to go after them without taking guilt from your past with you. Venus in your 1st ignites a destiny fuelled path by making a breath-taking angle to the North Node in your 5th. What is it you wish this new cycle to bring you?  A new love?  A career or business opportunity? Or just soul freedom and the ability to live an abundant, passionate life? 

The Sun arrives in your 1st from the 20th and with Mercury turning retrograde in your 1st from the 23rd, that revised plan or stocktake as I have referred to it, could have you enjoying the moment but waiting to take action while you work on it. Mercury retros are all about ‘re’ words –  revise, revisit and re-evaluate what you want before moving ahead. With Jupiter also retrograde in your 8th the ‘re’ words also include rebirth which your 8th rules. But there are other ‘re’ words that are in play due to ruler Mars, Pluto and also Lilith in your 10th. These include rewards and reputation. Just bear in mind that this is a time for conclusion and completion and rewards will come from what is already in motion. Keep working on that plan rather than initiating anything new now. Focus, don’t scatter your energy for targeted success.

The final week of the month could bring an unexpected twist when it comes to romance or what you attract into your life. The twist could be a gift or opportunity that you didn’t expect or else doesn’t look like what you thought you wanted. The surprise is it’s just what you needed. This could even come in the form of a chance to show off your ideas, talents or abilities and you are amazed at the response you get as Venus and Uranus meet in your 1st on the 29th. Be open and above all, be yourself now as this transit is all about your vibe, your frequency and how the universe (and others) respond to that.

The final day of March sees the second (‘blue’) full Moon on the month appear in your partnership sector. This is the same day as Venus who rules this house in your chart enters her other ruling house – your 2nd of money, assets and values. You want to get closer and share your feelings now with a partner or someone close to you. Above all, you are striving to remove barriers between and you others, to open up emotionally and achieve true understanding. Love is demanding an outlet now and you will be testing the waters to see whether your partner or even a friend, is open to moving towards true honestly and connection. It’s not just a one-way street. You open like a sunflower when your partner or someone else shares their emotions too. Just like a sunflower follows the sun you’ll turn towards trying to accommodate their feelings as you express your own. However, if someone is not up for this, you may now look closely at the future of your connection. Remember what I said about others responding to your vibe or frequency? If someone doesn’t chances are there are others who will. Does the sunflower follow the sun or the sun track the sunflower? Maybe a bit of both for you this month, Aries.

In a nutshell: Secrets are revealed. Mysteries cleared up. A new path to love is opening up. Are you ready to walk it, Aries?

annual horoscope

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.
