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 [...]
The end is in sight. On Sunday after the Aries Sun squares Pluto in Capricorn late in the day we will move into a less contentious phase and hopefully life will calm down some with fewer intense fireworks. Perhaps then all the Aries action can serve as the inspiration to try something new whilst we channel our energies in a positive way.
The rather abrupt shift from Pisces to Aries this year made this transition much more challenging for many of us. Here in the USA we were also contending with [...]
A small oasis of calm will descend on the New Moon at 01° 35′ Taurus on 21 April 2012, 12:18 AM PDT. This will be a very welcome change for anyone left feeling bashed about by Mars and Mercury stationing direct recently.

Between uncertain tempers, jealousy and a good possibility that the facts will be in short supply, resolving differences is NOT going to be easy.
Libra’s ruler, Venus, leaves easy going Taurus for Gemini on 3 April and is on her way [...]
di•a•logue – an exchange of ideas or opinions on a particular issue, especially a political or religious issue, with a view to reaching an amicable agreement or settlement. To discuss areas of disagreement frankly in order to resolve them.
The opposition between Mars in Aries and Saturn in Libra started me thinking seriously of the need for meaningful, respectful dialogue, on both a personal level and in the collective as a whole.
