Aries Season: March 21 – April 19 ~
Happy astrological new year! As the seasons change from Winter to Spring in the Northern Hemisphere (and Summer to Fall in the South), we move from dreamy & sensitive ♓️ Pisces – the last sign in the zodiac – into active, passionate, and idea-sparking ♈️ Aries (the first)!
Aries is a fiercely independent sign that loves to be active, follow their passions, promote what they love, and spread new ideas around like contagious magic fairy dust.
After this past month of checking in with our inner vibes & feelings and learning how to be more compassionate toward ourselves and those around us, we can now prepare to bring our new-found insights into the world to spark a new beginning that can help inspire others! After all, Aries is ruled by our action planet Mars, so the energy this month will be motivating us to keep our eyes on our own paper, take charge of our own lives & careers, and stand up to celebrate the unique individuals we all are.
Some of the most major upcoming astrological events over the next month include:
- New Moon in Aries – March 27/28, 2017
- Saturn Retrograde in Sagittarius – April 6 – August 25, 2017
- Mercury Retrograde in Taurus – April 9 – May 3, 2017
- Full Moon in Libra – April 10/11, 2017
- Venus goes direct – April 15, 2017

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)
Happy birthday, Aries! After a month of trying to decide what really matters to you in your life + career, it’s finally your time to shine. Now the Sun will be zooming right through your 1st house of Identity, sending you on a 4-week adventure to re-establish your goals and put new dreams into motion for the future. The New Moon will kick off in your sign on March 27/28th, heralding in your own personal new year – but the Full Moon will land in your opposite sign of Libra on April 10/11th, reminding you to put the focus back on to your relationships with others (and not just yourself). A steady balance is the goal here, so as fired up as you may feel this month, you will most likely find yourself needing to make some compromises with others, too.
With Saturn – the planet of practical matters – now going retrograde in your 9th house of Travel, Education & Spirituality, you will be spending most of the next 2 seasons re-discovering the deeper truth behind your plans & goals. Use this time to look for any missing practical details that you may have over-looked before! And finally, with Mercury – the planet of communications & technology – going retrograde in your 2nd house, you will be spending most of April re-thinking your true values and making any much-needed course corrections so you can receive what you are wanting in your life + career most. It’s a big month for you, so don’t forget your self-care, Aries. A steady exercise routine will help you keep stress levels down so you can take on the world with your usual exuberance fully intact! << Back to Top
TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)
After a month of mingling with your community and finding new ways to be of service to others with your creativity, it’s time for a major reflection period. The Sun will be gliding through your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits this month, helping you get back in touch with your deeper instinctual desires and impulses. With BOTH Mercury Retrograde & Venus Retrograde heading backwards through YOUR sign for much of April, re-thinking and re-viewing who you are, why you do what you do, and what you truly desire & value will be a huge theme for you now!
To top it all off, Saturn will begin its annual retrograde in your 8th house of Business, helping you re-visit ways to make your financial situation work for you in more practical ways for most of the Spring & Summer (Fall & Winter if you’re closer to Australia). With the Full Moon in Libra landing in your 6th house, it’s going to be especially important for you to support your health & daily routines so you can keep a clear mind during all of this inner upheaval. This too shall pass as the Sun will head into your sign next month, aiding you in bringing what you learn during this time out into the open to create a new beginning that feels more in alignment with the deepest parts of your true self. Ah, sweet authenticity! << Back to Top
GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)
After a month of expanding your career vision and learning to find better balance between your work & home worlds, it’s time to extend your lens beyond yourself to include your greater community. With the Sun cruising through your 11th house, you’ll be exploring new ideas for giving back & helping others using your own special blend of creativity. But with the Full Moon landing in your 5th house of Fun & Creativity, the trick for you during this moon cycle will be to balance your desire to be of aid to others and your desire to express yourself in a way that truly lights you up from within, too.
Meanwhile, the two latest planets going into retrograde this month – Mercury & Saturn – will be spinning you right around so you can reflect back on what you truly value in life on a deeper soul level (for the next 4 weeks) AND re-formulate a concept of which relationships in your life are the most practical for you based on the things you truly want to achieve (for the next 5 months). Suddenly your conversations may naturally dive into a deeper octave, as you seek to contemplate the inner truths that are normally comfortably hidden behind surface-level chatter. Best advice: A good sense of humor will be your best asset and the key to keeping your creativity alive this month. << Back to Top
CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)
After a month spent widening your playing field and opening your horizons through travel, spirituality or higher learning, it’s time to settle on a practical plan of action. This month, the Sun will be setting off fireworks in your 10th house of Career & Legacy. Luckily, the Sun will be joined soon afterward with career blessings from Venus, the planet of love & moolah. So, what is the work you really want to be remembered for? It’s your time to clear a path towards your loftiest goals to receive some more worthwhile rewards.
Two upcoming retrogrades will be helping you go back and reflect on a couple of important life areas. Saturn will be heading retrograde for 5 months in your 6th house of Work, Health & Daily Routines, helping you craft a more practical plan for the support systems you use to support yourself on a daily basis. And Mercury will go retrograde for 4 weeks in your 11th house of Community, helping you fix any issues that are keeping you from interacting with your friends and greater community in a friendlier manner. Although this will probably be a busy month for you, the key is going to be to keep your roots planted firmly in your home life, so that your branches can reach even greater heights when they bloom. << Back to Top
LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)
After a month of pulling strings to get your finances in check, you’re ready to venture out into the great unknown. As the Sun crosses through your 9th house of Travel, Spirituality & Higher Education over the next month, it’s time to explore your curiosities, make new connections, widen your horizons, and loosen the constrictions in your daily lifestyle. With the Full Moon falling in your 3rd house of Networking, it will also be important for you to remember there is still value to be found in supporting your long standing friendships & connections, so don’t feel like you have to completely ditch the old for the new.
As Mercury catapults backwards through your 10th house of Career & Legacy, this will be a month for re-thinking what you are really working towards in your life + career and how you really want to be remembered in the world. Obstacles may come up to help you make decisions on where you should be putting your focus next. Here’s a hint: With Saturn also heading backwards until the end of August in your 5th house of Creativity, your projects will be continually tested for their ‘fun factor’. You naturally glow, Leo, but when you’re doing what you really love, you’ll find that your light expands even further (& with less actual ‘work’ on your part)! << Back to Top
VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)
After a month of re-balancing your relationship needs with your own, it’s time to focus on your finances. The Sun will now be soaring through your 8th house of Business, helping you get your money – and your systems for earning money – in tip top shape for the future. With the Full Moon falling in your 2nd house of Values, it’s now or never, so get real about your financial situation and what it’s going to take to afford the kind of life you really want to have.
In early April, Mercury will be spinning backwards for its seasonal retrograde in your 9th house of Travel, Spirituality & Higher Education, vying with you to help you re-think where your true curiosities really lie and what you want to experience & discover in your life + career next. With Saturn heading retrograde in your Home & Family zone until the end of August, you may also be reviewing the long-term practicality of your current home & family situation. Focus on deciding on & envisioning what you truly desire. It may be difficult at first, but once Venus finally goes direct, your vision of what you value will be your guiding light to help you work towards the shinier lifestyle you’ve been craving. << Back to Top
LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)
After a month of re-defining your daily routines & support systems, your attention now shifts on to your close ties with others. The Sun will be shimmying through your 7th house of Relationships, and you may be looking at linking up with a new partner or deepening your connection with someone who has already been on your side in the past. However, with the Full Moon falling in your sign & your 1st house of Identity, you will need to be careful not to lose your SELF in the process. Your ruler, Venus, is still retrograde in your love & partnership zone until mid-April, so relationship issues may not feel totally clear to you until then. Focus on working on your side of the puzzle first and the rest will come together in time.
Meanwhile, there are two other retrogrades you should be aware of this month. The infamous Mercury Retrograde will be heading backwards in your 8th house of Business, crossing the communication wires with co-workers and clients, yes, but ultimate delivering a message to help you re-think and eventually improve the way you earn & manage your money for the future. Saturn will also be heading retrograde in your 3rd house of Networking, asking you whether or not your current friendships & community members really reflect your practical goals in life or if you’re needing to make upgrades. The people you surround yourself with on a constant basis can make or break your greatest ambitions for your career, so try to choose your company wisely! << Back to Top
SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)
After a month of exploring what it means for you to have fun and express your more youthful side in your creativity, it’s time to get back to the basics. The Sun will be drifting through your 6th house of Work, Health & Daily Routines for the next 4 weeks, helping you re-imagine and upgrade the way you go about your day and the things you do to support your wellbeing & success. With the Full Moon landing in your 12th house, however, every action you take to support yourself will need to be based on a deeper underlying goal or mission if your habits are to stick. Use this month to tap into your deeper soulful desires and build your daily rituals around them.
Meanwhile, Mercury Retrograde will be crossing wires and putting up roadblocks in your closest relationships for most of April. This will SO not be a good time to sign a binding contract with a business partner or commit to a long-term love connection. In addition, Saturn will be beginning its annual retrograde journey through your 2nd house of Values until late August, to help you see if you’re really doing what you need to in order to get what you want most in life. Review all of your options and try to stay open-minded and practical, as your decisions now could affect you far into the future! << Back to Top
SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)
After a month of reminding yourself of the pivotal importance of keeping a happy & well-organized home to help support your family in order to support a more balanced career for yourself, you’re on to more creative endeavors. With the Sun prancing through your 5th house of Fun & Creativity, this month will be all about reawakening your “joie de vivre” (or joy of life). Let go of work for a moment and let yourself play! The only thing is that the Full Moon will be falling in your 11th house of Community, asking you if there is some way you can use this newly awakened creative spark to help others, too. You may find that harnessing your creativity can not only help YOU come alive & make your life more exciting, but it can also give you more fuel to use to inspire or educate others.
Meanwhile, Mercury will be going retrograde in your 6th house of Daily Routines. If there are any areas of your health, working schedule, or daily rituals that you’ve been neglecting for some time, this month will help bring it out into the open to be dealt with now. Saturn will also start heading retrograde this month in your 1st house of Identity. You may have trouble deciding the most practical way to present or promote yourself for a while, but these explorations can help pave the way for a deeper understanding of your true self – and the kind of person you’re really NOT – in the long run. << Back to Top
CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)
After a month spent making new & old connections amongst your network, your focus this month is now shifting on to your personal life. As the Sun sprints through your 4th house of Home & Family, a deep spring cleaning may be in order, or even a full-on change of house! You’re also being reminded of the importance of a nurturing & supportive family. Have you been working too much to give them your full attention lately? With the Full Moon landing in your 10th house of Career, it can bring up some changes that may need to be made to keep your work from taking over your brain, so you can spend more time on matters of the heart.
As Mercury begins spinning backwards into your 5th house of Creativity in early April, the barriers that have been keeping you from having more fun & enjoyment in your life + career will be showing up to be cleared & re-imagined. It can seem super frustrating at the time, but ultimately so therapeutic for you to learn to let down your guard and release your need to control every outcome. Your ruler Saturn will also be heading retrograde starting this month, but this time in your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits. This is the time to explore & cultivate more discipline around following the path you feel you need take to achieve your deeper calling in life! It’s true, this is probably no small feat. Just don’t forget to leave some room in your schedule for fun. :) << Back to Top
AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)
After a month of exploring what you really desire and value in your life + career as well as dealing with any issues within your financial situation that have been holding you back from achieving these things, it’s time to get out and mingle. The Sun will now be sauntering through your 3rd house of Networking, opening the gates for you to make new connections with others who can help you bring your ideas to life. But with the Full Moon landing in your 9th house of Travel, Spirituality & Education, you may first have to let go of a fantasy that hasn’t been working in your best interests.
As Mercury spins backwards through your 4th house of Home & Family for most of April, you’ll be put to the test to re-think and review what is needed to make your house more of a home & get closer with your family. Meanwhile, with Saturn heading retrograde through your 11th house, your zone of Community & Friendships (and your specialty!), you’ll also be taking the next 5 months to re-imagine what a practical community should really look & feel like as well. Be sure to consider if the contributions you’re making to the bigger picture are really sustainable & rewarding for you, too! << Back to Top
PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)
After a month of re-emerging into the world as your true self during Pisces season, it’s time to move on to the next phase of life. This month, the Sun will be drifting through your 2nd house of Values. What you desire most in life will be coming into question, as well as what you need to DO to get it. With the Full Moon in Libra landing in your 8th house of Business, any insecurities within your financial situation or joint resources will be coming up to be cleared, so you can build a stronger foundation to help yourself receive more of what you really value most in the future.
Meanwhile, Mercury Retrograde will be crossing backwards through your 3rd house of Networking. This is going to make communications with the people around you extra hazy for most of April, so don’t forget to triple-check every e-mail you write and try to wean yourself off from multi-tasking for a while! Lastly, with Saturn heading retrograde in your 10th house of Career, your job will be to figure out which path for your career will be the smartest & most in alignment with your true goals and then become VERY disciplined in working towards this until the end of August. << Back to Top
