ARIES (Mar 21 – Apr 20)
The Ram: Fire – Spirit – Outgoing
The year ahead is going to be a journey of coming to terms with the world of emotion. Venus suggests as much, as does your guiding light, Mars. You are destined to feel; to come to terms with the fact that others around you have varying degrees of sensitivity. There are no gung-ho solutions to get you through in the realm of relationship. Love can only dance when ego trips take a step to one side. Listen to what your beloved has to say.
These are tricky financial times. With Mars in Pisces at the beginning of the year, you will be operating on trust rather than informed insight. As with everything you touch, the challenge is always one of reining your horses in. The temptation to run with impulse is maddening. Uranus shifts away from Aries early in the year. This makes you less unpredictable, but it makes the world around you more unpredictable. Focus on steadying the ship.
Neptune is in Pisces. Underneath all else, life is deepening our longing. None of the usual bells and whistles, no matter how pretty, are ever going to truly satisfy. We aren’t going to be allowed to forget this. With Uranus moving through Taurus, there are bound to be major shifts and changes either in economy or politics. The games that have been working up until now are running out of steam. A desire for common sense will soon rule you.
TAURUS (Apr 21 – May 20)
The Bull: Earth – Matter – Fixed
There are big changes ahead. Uranus moves out of Aries into Taurus, ensuring that your focus is on liberation. Your emotions are likely to be running strong, like a river. You are going to have to monitor whether you are being reactive or responsive very closely indeed, especially in love. Reactivity will find you more bound in knots than ever. Responsivity, your capacity to listen and respond in awareness, will open up whole new vistas of feeling.
There’s nothing you like more than steadiness and solidity. Uranus enters Taurus early in the year. There is no planet less solid or steady. It rotates on a wildly tilted axis amongst other things. It will take a major shift in how you see the world to be able to navigate a changing financial atmosphere. The harder you try to put your fiscal roots down, the more life defies you. Fleetness of foot will serve better than constraint. Be skilful rather than habitual.
Your desire to wrestle free from your shackles is about to get real. Reaction against the status quo is not enough. What are you for? Have a positive vision rather than a negative one. It’s not enough to know what you don’t want. It’s time to figure out what you do want. Uranus is calling you to shake all the cobwebs out of your system and regenerate your love of life. If you don’t shake yourself off, life will do it for you. Give yourself wings to fly.
