Ever since the first of April when the Sun, Venus and Mars in Aries moved beyond the reach of the outer planets, we’ve been experiencing what I call “Aries Normal” . . . active, fast paced and directed.
What is Aries normal good for? For one thing getting off the couch and out the door to exercise! All the fire signs promote activity but none like Aries. The best personal trainer I ever worked with had an Aries Sun and Mars in Leo. The man was a genius at inspiring everyone to get out there and sweat! Knowing I would be meeting with him once a week was enough to push through the discomfort and keep moving. After working with him for several years I ended up in the best physical condition of my adult life.
Aries energy is perfect for initiating new activities too. We tend to be keener on the idea of jumping into a new project rather than sticking with the same old, same old. Today’s New Moon in Aries is especially wonderful for taking the first step of a new venture. When I was writing this week’s horoscopes, I looked at the Aries ruled house for each sign and thought about new starts, etc. Check out both your Sun sign and Rising sign horoscopes for this week.
When the Moon passes through the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn) it can get somewhat more intense and we can get edgier but all in all it is more exhilarating than uncomfortable. Those of us with our Suns in the cardinal signs usually enjoy the occasional challenge so this energy feeds us.
Next week the slide into Taurus begins with Venus leading the way on Monday. Mars and the Sun enter Taurus together on April 19-20 . . . a powerful combination. No more procrastinating or you’ll risk losing out on a marvelous Aries boost! Go for it!
