Aries

Ignite the dream

Follow the fire

No excuses – go for it!

It’s go for it week, Aries. Especially if something you missed out the first time returns. Don’t hesitate. Despite the Mercury retro in your 2nd now, it’s about allowing yourself to feel passion, intensity and joy. And not to let these pass you by through fear.

Did you know we can get so used to the pain of feeling we are not good enough/can’t have what we want, that if we are offered it we sabotage ourselves because the pain is so familiar while the opposite – our joy and bliss, feels unfamiliar – so it scares us.

Firebrand soul – scorch a new path and blaze a trail of passion as ruler Mars enters your sign on the 24th and meets Jupiter in your 1st on the 29th. Mars is the confidence, the desire to have and Jupiter is the maker of opportunities when we have the courage to act in our own best interests. Sometimes this simply means taking that first step or saying ‘Yes’. You have Venus in your 1st right up until the 28th promising enhancement and adding that touch of allure to everything you say and do. Venus moves into its ruling 2nd on the 28th and along with retro Mercury in here has you re-working that self-worth or those ideas around receiving abundance or dancing with pleasure. The only limits now are your own thoughts. Step free of them once and for all, Aries.

In a nutshell: You have the fire in your warrior heart and the dream in your soul. Jupiter hands you the opportunity and ruler Mars the confidence. So – go for it this week, Aries! You have ignition.

ARIES

The heat is on!

Time for expansion and opportunity

Fire up those dreams for your future

Happy Beltane, Aries. Funny as I was preparing this month’s forecast and saving it, I accidentally typed ‘Firecast’ instead of ‘Forecast’. But as far as your sign is concerned, Aries – ‘firecast’ may be a more accurate summary of the lava-hot aspects occurring in your sign this May! Beltane is of course associated with the lightning of fires on May Day eve. Which makes your May ‘firecast’ so very apt and sees you on fire all month long!

We have our first sighting of the crescent new Moon on the 2nd – which also marks the end of Ramadan. This is the day when Venus enhances and entrances as it arrives in your sign on the 2nd. This is the first of three major events which bring the focus very much on to you and which form a nexus of attraction prospects for you. Turn up the heat another notch! Your personal money/values revolution is another hot zone. Venus rules your 2nd as well as your 7th. And the 5th delivers a meeting between the Sun and Uranus while the Sun moves off to meet the North Node in your 2nd on the 13th.

Something may initially feel uncomfortable for you. It may look different, require you to make a radically different choice to your default setting, or ask that you state your values – and stand by them. This may literally be future-shifting for you when it comes to your income, debts, home, possessions – and what you have to work with from here on in. Light the fire, Aries and turn yourself into a trailblazer – even if it feels strange at first. That’s how we change our future and what the universe sends our way.

It’s important you expand your ideas around this as here comes big, bigger, biggest. A rare and special period which puts you in the hot zone all the way through to October begins on the 10th when Jupiter arrives in your sign. It’s been 12 years since Fat Planet last paid you a visit. So, look back to what was on offer back then and also how your image, appearance, profile, style, look, personal brand or message or title played a role in this.

How did this shift and as a result, how did that surge of self-confidence and belief in yourself affect what you attracted or those opportunities? Charisma and chutzpah are your superpowers now. Especially as you also have Chiron in your 1st. Ruler Mars isn’t far behind – in fact it arrives on the 24th and will meet Jupiter on the 29th making this a day like no other for fierce, fearless, fiery moves. The heat is so on now, Aries.

There’s a real second time around feel to this as the day Jupiter lands is also the same day as Mercury turns retrograde in its ruling sign of Gemini. Now, I’m not saying the retro rules don’t apply here – they do. But Jupiter arriving in tandem with this can see you offered second chances, opportunities return and you ditching doubts and making your own luck simply by taking action.

It’s important now to follow your truth no matter where this takes you. This month’s full Moon in your 8th on the 16th is known as the Flower or Blossom Moon. It brings with it a total lunar eclipse which combined with the Mercury retro-factor means we are in the dark in a key area. What we feel may not tally with the facts. This eclipse can be seen across a wide area of the globe. South America will have the best view and if you are there you will be able to see the entire event. Western Europe will see the whole of the total phase while a swathe of Africa from East to West, will see it leave.

This eclipse may show you who is with you and also who isn’t. If money issues are holding up plans, you could discover other resources or pathways to what it is you need now. It’s all about opening your mind. Don’t give self-doubt or insecurities any house room under this eclipse. Continue to feel the fire instead.

May 21 sees the Sun enter your 3rd and also entangle with retro Mercury. Again, this may be a day where something returns to you or asks that this time you may a different choice. Revising those projects or that message may feature but defer launches for now. Also avoid purchases such as technology, cars and even horses. Mercury returns to your 2nd on the 23rd so bring that focus back to those core values, Aries. Especially from the 28th when Venus leaves your 1st and arrives in what is its ruling sign/house in your chart. The focus now is on your worth and your relationship to the cycle of abundance.

What may still be hidden in the shadows of the mid-month eclipse may now begin to clarify as the new Moon appears in your 3rd on the 30th. This may also deliver news you have been waiting on or the result of what you undertook the previous day when ruler Mars and Jupiter met in your sign. Validation, confirmation and also a new pathway ahead show you just what being a fire starter delivers. This takes you all the way to October, Aries so blaze that trail!

In a nutshell: It’s all about you, you, YOU this month as Jupiter, Venus and ruler Mars all arrive in your sign. Big up that message or personal brand, Aries. The next big thing? You know who that is this May, Aries!

ARIES

2022 hands you searing self-confidence and determination to achieve those personal goals and dreams, Aries. Jupiter arrives in your sign telling you to bring your game face! Be bold, be fierce and above all – authentically you when it comes to attraction!

Are you ready for something more heart-starting after the non-events of ‘20 and ‘21, Aries? Sure, they may not have been total fizzers. And last year may have brought you improvements compared with 2020. But now I’m talking a big, bold, brazen, blaze a trail 12 months that aligns you to those totally personal goals and dreams. And sends you hurtling down a path towards them like the ultimate theme park ride!

We don’t just have once in 12 year opportunities coming your way. But once in many lifetime opportunities too. This year can see you finally step free of any past restrictions, take your creative and/or psychic abilities to the next level and even hand you sparkly fresh, newly minted karma! 2022 can be a great cosmic reboot for you across so many areas of your life, Aries. Are you ready? Start your engines.

The slow-moving planets Saturn (11th), Uranus (2nd), Neptune (12th) and Pluto (10th) remain in their current houses all year. Saturn acting as cosmic sorting halo when it comes to friends and connections and setting goal intention, Uranus refining your values and relationship to the material world, Neptune in its ruling sign linking you to the limitless wisdom of the multiverse and opening up your well of insight while Pluto continues to work on transforming your path and public reputation.

It is your 10th of career and your 11th of friends and goals which will be your main focus as 2022 begins. Ruler Mars will meet with Venus in both these houses during February (16th) and March (6th). This is a rare and special event. In fact, we have a few coming your way in ‘22. But two conjunctions in a space of three weeks in two signs can only occur when Mars is moving forward in close proximity to Venus retrograde. So, Mars catches up with Venus while Venus is backwards, Venus then moves forward to catch up with Mars as Mars is the slower moving planet. Make sense?

Use this period to not only focus on success and what it can bring you in terms of recognition and rewards, but to adjust your path if necessary and to time any career plans and moves accordingly. You’re in that rare position of feeling confident and also being able to impress at the same time. Venus will enhance your image, Mars simply has you going for it. And when Venus catches up with Mars once more you are looking at rewards and also a change around how others see you!

What you may find over this key period is that you may apply for or initiate something which is all based on your smarts, knowledge and experience. But the outcome you get three weeks later is also due to your people skills, who you know or what dynamic you personally add to the mix. Work what and who you know during this window as it can be a determining factor not just for this year – but for the long term. This is a time to be your boldest, most go-getting version of you when it comes to ambitions, work and career, Aries.

Prepare for Breathtaking

Let’s now talk birthday blessings because the bonuses 2022 has for you simply don’t stop there. The Sun lands in your 1st on March 20 and the new Moon in your sign on April 1 is a key trigger for you to begin something new. This period has you self-starting those goals and engaging in a whirlwind of activity. But then feeling a deep need to decompress and recharge for a while. In fact, 2022 may bring you intense progress for half the year and being ‘out there’ and then refueling on a soul, physical and mental level for the other six months! This doesn’t run concurrently so don’t worry. But do stay tuned with that energy and don’t resist the call to recharge when it comes.

The reason for this is that Jupiter will be paying your sign a visit for the first time in 12 years for six months of this year. And then retreating back into your mysterious 12th for the other six. Look back 12 years if you were 18 or over at that time. What did you start or begin back then? What did you dare to try? How did you give yourself that little bit ‘extra’? What role did your appearance, look, brand, style play in all this? Did you broadcast yourself in a bolder way? Big up that image? How did you work you? What opportunities did you attract and what did you do with them?

All these themes are returning now. Possibly increased in their fabulous potential and enhanced by your own inner wisdom and soul progress. Because you can work this to your advantage now thanks to that once in 165 year karmic event I mentioned which is Jupiter and Neptune meeting in Pisces and your 12th on April 12. Both Jupiter and Neptune rule Pisces.

You can shed past regrets now. Link to the wisdom of your past lives and all the other ‘you’s’ across the vast multiverse. Your beliefs may change or expand. Deep healing can occur on a karmic level. You may see all too clearly why you have chosen what you did in the past. But remember what I said about no regrets? This is about realignment and healing.

It is also preparing you for Jupiter’s arrival in your 1st on May 10. Jupiter’s arrival coincides when Venus in is your sign making this one of the best periods of attraction for you for the year. Above all however, use the meeting between Jupiter and Neptune to open up to insight and relink to those dreams. If you do have regrets about the past, take away what you have learned and open to a second, better opportunity. Chances are Jupiter will oblige and deliver it while it is in your sign.

There are three things which cannot stay hidden for long. The Sun, the Moon and the Truth. So, let’s talk this year’s eclipse axis which is across your 2nd/8th houses. The most important one for you in terms of your money, values and self-worth occurs on April 30th in your 2nd and is an eclipsed ‘Black’ Moon. This is the second new Moon to fall within a calendar month and can only occur once every 2.5 years. An eclipsed Black Moon is even rarer.

Eclipses hide and conceal. But what they hide doesn’t stay hidden for long. Look to what or who may be making you feel you are not worthy or good enough under this Moon. Time to upgrade. Between this and the eclipsed full Moon in your 8th on May 16 look to fears or insecurities around money, abundance or not having or feeling worthy of ‘enough’. Who may be responsible for these feelings may surprise you when you get to the truth.

Mars makes a timely arrival in your 1st on May 24 and this is certainly one of these periods where your soul warrior confidence surges and you feel you can go after anything and succeed. May 29 has Mars and Jupiter meeting. Your optimism, charisma and fierce boldness are irresistible now. Jupiter in your 1st can often be a better transit for love and partnership matters than Jupiter in our 7th. So, if you are seeking any kind of partnership – the loving or work kind, this along with October is one of the best periods of the year for you.

Bring your brand

Chiron also remains in your sign for ‘22 and along with Jupiter is telling you this is a time to show the world and celebrate everything about you that makes you well – you. The only mistake you can make now Aries is being anyone other than who you are. Be an original. Don’t bend yourself out of shape to people please. Or be a ‘yes’ person. If someone is making you feel as if you need be something other than who you are, you need to look long and hard at this connection now. Because this year, there are plenty of people who want that utterly unique brand you are selling. So, why bother with those who don’t?

Don’t give self-doubt house room!

Don’t allow old insecurities to resurface in late October November. The total eclipse in your 8th on October 25th combined with Jupiter returning to your 12th and ruler Mars retrograde in your 3rd from October 30 could make you wonder who hijacked your mojo! That unshakable self-belief and which has fueled you since April suddenly runs dry. Intimacy issues in relationships may surface. You may start second guessing yourself or hesitate to voice your opinions or doubt your ideas.

This is your time to recharge if you have spent the past months in full forward motion. Boundaries may need to be looked at or reinstated. This may apply to yourself if you have been running on empty. Or it could apply to another. Above all, while your ruler is retrograde which it will now remain until ‘23 and Jupiter in your 12th, do not allow anyone to dismiss or devalue your emotional experience or ideas. Remember, the truth cannot stay hidden – even if its being gaslit at the time.

Overall, you spend the year wanting more closeness and depth in all your relationships. In love you need someone who is up for the journey with you. For periods of intense activity and hedonistic pleasure and who supports your ambitions. But then who is happy to flip that switch and unplug for a while and join you on a soothing soul journey. And yes, if you need time alone, respects that too. Ensure you communicate what you need at any given time clearly, Aries to avoid misunderstandings and hurt feelings, especially once Mars is backwards in your 3rd.

Best times for home, family matters and you feeling secure, supported and at one with your world and those around you? That’s going to be from May to July when Ceres enters your 4th house. Property dealings, lifestyle, and benefits via female family members or those you live will take precedence now. You will be attuned to the needs of those around you. And want to find ways to meet these. Any steps you take now simply enhances your feeling of connection and belonging.

You will end the year on a high note when Jupiter returns to your sign on December 20th and Chiron heads direct on the 24th. Between the period when Jupiter exits your 1st on October 28 and returns, enter the dreamtime of possibilities. Unplug then if needed and spend time looking at all you have done, started, achieved and experienced since the year began. Now – set your intentions for ‘23, Aries. This has been the first stage on a longer journey. What you can imagine you can have. 2022 says go directly to your dream. It’s ready to be claimed!
