This is a successful but complicated month. You are in the midst of a yearly career peak until the 20th – and for many of you it will continue to peak even afterwards. Your 10th house of career is full of planets, indicating that this is where your focus needs to be. Your 4th house of home and family, by contrast, is empty – only the Moon will move through there on the 16th and 17th. You serve your family best by being successful in your external life. Outer success will lead to emotional harmony and wellness.
Mars, the ruler of your Horoscope, enters your 10th house on the 25th. This is also showing success, but in a more personal way. Your success is not just about your professional skills, but also about who you are – your personal appearance and overall demeanour are big factors too. You are a celebrity in your world this month.
Here are the complications, however. Mars goes ‘out of bounds’ from the 12th. Thus, you are operating outside your normal sphere. Probably there are no answers in your normal orbit and you must go outside it to find them. This tends to insecurity. You’re outside your comfort zone.
Venus, who rules both finance and love in your Horoscope, is retrograde until the 28th. This introduces glitches and delays in both areas of life. It will not be advisable to make important love or financial decisions during this period. Study things further. Things are not as they seem. Gain clarity.
In spite of Venus’s retrograde, the month ahead should be prosperous. Venus is strongly positioned – in your 10th house – and this often shows pay rises, official or unofficial, and the financial favour of bosses, parents and elders. But there can be delays involved with this.
Health needs some monitoring this month. On a long-term level health is good, but this is not your best period. There will be some improvement after the 20th, but you still need to pace yourself and rest and relax more. Your health planet, Mercury, goes into retrograde motion from the 14th onwards. This is not a good time to take medical tests or have procedures done. Either have them done before the 14th or wait until next month.

Health and energy improve this month but still need watching. Your health planet, Mercury, will move forward on the 4th. Back and knee massage will enhance the health until the 15th. After then, ankle and calf massage will be good. Until the 15th you seem very conservative in health matters. But this will change afterwards. You become more experimental and more open to alternative therapies. Make sure to get enough fresh air, especially after the 15th. And, as always, rest when you feel tired. Listen to the messages of your body.
A lot of the complications of last month are dissolving this month. For a start, after the 4th all the planets are moving forward. Thus there is clarity and movement, in the world and in your personal affairs. The pace of life quickens – just the way that you like it, Aries. Mars is still ‘out of bounds’ early in the month, but comes back on track on the 10th. This gives a feeling of security. You feel on more solid ground.
Though your career peak is technically over, career is still important and you still seem very successful. Mars, the ruler of your Horoscope, spends the month in your career house. People look up to you. You seem above everyone in your world.
Venus spends the month in your 10th house as well. You seem practical in love. Down to earth. You are attracted to the powerful – to people of status and position – and you’re meeting these kinds of people. Your career is advanced by social means as well as through your overall image and demeanour. For singles there is an interesting love encounter from the 25th to the 28th as Mars and Venus travel together. It is also an excellent financial period.
Finances are good this month. Pay rises – official or unofficial – can still happen. Bosses, parents and elders are favourably disposed to your financial goals. Furthermore, Venus in Capricorn indicates sound financial judgement and a long-term perspective on wealth. You are adopting the image of wealth these days.

A very happy and prosperous month, Aries, enjoy! There are so many wonderful things happening. The temporary stresses of the short-term planets are abating. By the 6th there will be only one long-term planet in stressful alignment; all the others will be either in harmonious alignment or leaving your alone. So health and energy are excellent. If you like, you can enhance it even further through ankle and calf massage until the 10th; through foot massage from the 10th to the 27th; and through scalp and face massage from the 27th onwards. Spiritual healing techniques are extremely powerful from the 10th to the 27th, and especially from the 20th to the 23rd. If you feel under the weather, see a spiritual healer.
You have energy too. All the planets are moving forward this month. When the Sun moves into your sign on the 20th, you are in the best starting energy of the year. However, it would be best to wait until your birthday or afterwards to launch those new projects or products into the world. You will then have both the universal solar cycle and your personal social cycle in waxing mode.
You are an independent kind of person by nature. But right now, even more so than usual. All the planets are in the Eastern, independent sector of your chart this month. After the 20th you will have the maximum Eastern energy, so this is the time to create your own happiness. Take the bull by the horns and make the changes that need to be made. If you are happy there is that much less suffering in the world.
The month ahead is also very spiritual. You can expect important spiritual breakthroughs and all kinds of supernatural experiences. The dream life will be active and revelatory.
Mars travels with Pluto from the 2nd to the 4th. This is a very dynamic transit. Watch your temper, avoid confrontations and don’t be in a rush. Perhaps surgery will be recommended to you. There might also be a psychological confrontation with death – although generally not a literal death. Detox regimes are especially powerful now.

The lunar eclipse of the 16th occurs in your 8th house of regeneration. So take it nice and easy over this period and avoid risk-taking activities. This kind of eclipse often brings psychological confrontations with death. Often there are dreams of death or the death (or near death) of people you know. Perhaps family members. Every lunar eclipse (and you get them twice a year on average) impacts on the home and family and this one is no different. Often repairs are needed in the home. Family members tend to be more temperamental and you need more patience with them. Siblings and sibling figures are forced to make financial course corrections.
These psychological confrontations with death are not meant to harm or punish you. It is only the Cosmos’s way to remind you that life is short and can end at any time. No more dilly-dallying – do the work that you came here to do.
The month ahead is prosperous, as you are still in a yearly financial peak until the 21st. When the Sun travels with Uranus on the 4th and 5th sudden money can come to you – something out of the blue. Sometimes this transit can bring a sudden expense too, but the money to cover it will also come.
Prosperity is seen in other ways. Jupiter moves into your own house on the 11th – a classic signal for prosperity. Venus, your financial planet, crosses your Ascendant on the 13th and also enters your 1st house. This brings financial windfalls to you. It’s as if money is chasing you rather than the other way around. Probably personal accessories or clothing will come to you too. This is a good period for spending on these kinds of things as well. You spend on yourself these days. You adopt the image of prosperity. People see you this way. Personal appearance is a big factor in earnings.
The same situation holds for love. Love chases you. There is nothing special that you need to do: just go about your daily business. Those already in a relationship will find that your spouse, partner or current love is more devoted than usual.
Health is excellent this month.

Another happy and prosperous month ahead, Aries. Even the solar eclipse on the 30th will not do much to dim your happiness. It will just add some spice to life and keep things interesting.
Last month, on the 20th, you began one of your yearly personal pleasure peaks. This continues until the 20th of this month. This is a great month to pamper the body and enjoy all the sensual delights. Children and children figures in your life seem devoted to you. You’re in a happy-go-lucky kind of month. Personal independence is at its maximum for the year. So, if you haven’t yet made the changes that need to be made for your happiness, now is the time.
Starting new projects or launching new products is still favoured this month – especially from your birthday onwards. Not only are you in the best starting energy of the year, but all the planets are moving forward until the 29th, ensuring that there will be a lot of cosmic help to your efforts. The Moon’s waxing phase from the 1st to the 16th will add even more cosmic momentum to your efforts.
On the 20th, the Sun enters your money house and you begin a yearly financial peak. Earnings should increase. You seem lucky in speculations. You make money in happy ways and spend on happy things. You’re in a period of ‘happy money’.
The solar eclipse of the 30th occurs in your money house, indicating a need to make financial changes and course corrections in your financial life. The events of the eclipse will show where your financial assumptions are awry, thus enabling you to correct them.
Every solar eclipse has an impact on the children and children figures in your life, and this one is no different. They should reduce their schedule over this period. There can be dramas in the lives of the money people in your life. It is not a good idea to speculate during the eclipse period.
Health is good this month, and you can enhance it further with head, face and scalp massages until the 11th. Afterwards, neck massage will be beneficial. Don’t let financial ups and downs impact your health. You are more than your bank balance.

On May 11, Jupiter enters your sign – a very positive and happy transit. He will be in your sign all month (and beyond). Mars also enters your sign, on May 25, and will remain there all this month. These are great aspects for your health and energy. Self-esteem and confidence are high. Personal independence is also strongly indicated. You have loads of energy and you get things done quickly. Mars and Jupiter travelling together (near each other) show a month of positive achievements. Health is good this month, and although the Sun moves into a stressful alignment with you after the 21st, it is not enough to cause problems.
Retrograde activity increases this month. We are far from the maximum for the year, but it is still increased over last month.
The month ahead seems prosperous. Mars travelling with Jupiter indicates financial increase and good fortune. You’re catching the financial lucky breaks. You’re travelling more – and it looks like happy travel, pleasurable travel. Jupiter in your sign (and Mars near Jupiter) is a great aspect for college-level students or those applying to colleges. You will be pleasantly surprised. Chances are colleges are recruiting you, pursuing you.
Prosperity is seen in other ways too. Venus, your financial planet, remains in the money house until the 23rd. She is powerful here in her own sign and house. Earnings should increase. Venus will travel with Uranus on the 10th and 11th. This can bring sudden money. It indicates the financial favour of friends – they bring financial opportunity. You may need to make some financial adjustments. Venus in the money house often shows a partnership or joint venture. On the 23rd Venus will move into your 3rd house of communication. This would show earnings from sales, marketing, teaching, writing and trading. Investors should look at telecommunications, transportation and media companies. Retailing also seems interesting. Your gift of the gab is your fortune from the 23rd onwards.
Love is down to earth and practical this month, at least until the 23rd. Love is shown in material kinds of ways. This is how you show love and how you feel loved. Singles find romantic opportunities as they pursue their financial goals or with people involved in their finances.

Health and energy need more attention this month. There is nothing serious afoot, just short-term stresses caused by short-term planets. You will see a dramatic improvement after the 23rd, but in the meantime make sure to get enough rest. You can enhance your health with arm and shoulder massage until the 5th. Deep breathing and fresh air will also be a help. From the 5th to the 19th, diet becomes important. Massage of the stomach reflex will also help things. Good emotional health – positive moods and feelings – is important. After the 19th, massage of the heart reflex and chest massage will be good.
Retrograde activity increases still further this month, though we are still far from the maximum of the year: 30 per cent of the planets are retrograde until the 28th; 40 per cent afterwards.
The planetary power this month is below the horizon of your chart – the night side. Your 4th house of home and family is easily the strongest in your chart. So the focus should be on the home, family and domestic situation – more importantly on emotional healing. This is a month where you build up the internal forces for a future career push, which will happen in a few months’ time.
Mars will enter your money house on the 5th and stay there for the rest of the month, which is a positive signal for earnings. It shows focus. Jupiter is still in your sign all month – very near the Ascendant. So the month ahead is prosperous.
Venus, your love and financial planet, will be in Gemini, your 3rd house, until the 18th. Thus, like last month, earnings come from your communication skills. This transit still favours writing, teaching, blogging, sales, marketing, retailing and trading. Whatever you actually do, good advertising and PR is very important.
Love can be found in your neighbourhood until the 18th. There will be no need to travel far and wide in search of it. There are romantic opportunities for singles in educational-type settings – schools, lectures, seminars and even bookstores. After the 18th love opportunities happen through the family and family connections.

Planetary retrograde activity increases even further this month. After the 24th half the planets are moving backwards. The main lesson for you, Aries, is patience. You like things in a hurry – you like speed – but this is not a month for that. Slower is faster. Be perfect in all that you do. There are no short cuts now.
Health and energy are much, much better – vastly better – than last month. This translates to a happy month. Your challenge is to use this gift of energy, this gift of life force, in a positive way. Most people are not suffering from ‘lack of power’ but from the misuse of the power that they already have.
Last month on the 23rd you began a yearly personal pleasure peak. This will continue (and be even stronger) until the 23rd of this month. This is a time to explore your personal creativity and to enjoy leisure activities. Take a vacation from your cares and worries and explore the rapture of life. When you drop your cares, you very often find that insoluble problems are solved, naturally and normally.
Mars travels with Uranus on the 1st and 2nd. This is a very dynamic aspect. Be more mindful on the physical plane. Watch your temper and drive more carefully. On the other hand, this aspect brings a closeness with friends. You probably want to test your body, but be sure to do it mindfully and safely.
Mars remains in your money house until the 20th, so the month ahead is prosperous (Jupiter is still in your sign all month as well). Those of you looking for work have two job opportunities this month. The new Moon of the 27th will further clarify the job situation as the month progresses into September.
Love is happy, although you seem moody in love. Getting into the right mood seems the main challenge. Things change on the 12th as Venus moves into your 5th house of fun and creativity. This is not a transit for marriage, but more for love affairs. Love has to be fun. Never mind the hard times – you’ll deal with that when the time comes. Those who can show you a good time are the most alluring right now.

Retrograde activity increases even further this month, with 60 per cent of the planets travelling backwards after the 10th. (This is the maximum extent this year.) So, like last month, the keyword is patience, patience, patience. There are no short cuts these days. Short cuts are illusions and can actually cause more delays. Slow down and be perfect in all that you do. This will minimize – though not eliminate – glitches and delays.
With all these retrogrades (including the retrograde of your health planet Mercury from the 10th onwards) this is not a good time for any surgery, medical tests or procedures. If you have some option in the matter, reschedule them for a later time.
Health is good this month but does need watching after the 23rd. The good news is that you are focused and paying attention to your health – until the 23rd – and this will stand you in good stead for later. There is nothing seriously amiss here, just short-term stress caused by the short-term planets. Still, with less overall energy pre-existing conditions can start acting up. Enhance the health with more rest and massage of the lower abdomen until the 24th and with hip massage afterwards. The kidney reflex should be massaged after the 24th.
Venus, your love and financial planet, is having her solstice from September 30 to October 3. This means she pauses in the heavens (in her latitudinal motion) and then changes direction. So, this happens financially and socially too. It is a pause that refreshes.
We have two rare Grand Trines this month – one in the Earth signs (that began last month) and the other in the Air signs. Now one Grand Trine is rare enough. This month we have two of them. This is good news. In spite of the delays and retrogrades, nice things are happening. Your communication and management skills are much enhanced.
On the 23rd the Sun enters your 7th house of love and stays there for the rest of the month. You begin a yearly love and social peak. You attend more parties and go out more. Singles have many romantic opportunities.

Retrograde activity is still intense, but lessening compared to last month (a maximum of 40 per cent of the planets). Perhaps the most important of these retrogrades is the retrograde of Mars which begins on the 30th. Mars is the ruler of your Horoscope and thus a very important planet for Aries. His retrograde shows a need to gain clarity on your personal goals, on the kind of image and appearance that you want to project to others. You might feel a lack of direction. You might feel that you’re going backwards instead of forwards. Though love is there for you, you’re not sure what you want. So, work to gain clarity here.
You’re still in a yearly love and social peak until the 23rd. There are plenty of romantic opportunities for singles. The problem, as we mentioned above, is you. You could be backing away from serious romance from the 20th.
Health still needs watching, but this is a short-term blip. By the 23rd you will see dramatic improvement. Perhaps credit will go to some therapist, pill or potion, but the reality is that the planets shifted in your favour; they were only the means that the Cosmos used to improve things. In the meantime, you can enhance health further with massage of the lower abdomen until the 11th and hip massage from the 11th to the 30th. It would be good to massage the kidney reflex after the 11th as well. Good health for you means good social health from the 11th to the 30th. So, if health problems arise restore harmony with friends and the beloved as quickly as possible.
A solar eclipse on the 25th occurs in your 8th house. This eclipse isn’t that strong. It is a partial eclipse and doesn’t impact on other planets. Still, it won’t hurt to reduce your schedule. This eclipse can bring psychological encounters with death. These are love letters from the Cosmos to remind you to get more serious about life. The spouse, partner or current love has to make important financial changes. Children and children figures have personal dramas. They should take it easy over this period too.
Three planets have their solstice this month, which is highly unusual: Venus, Mercury and Jupiter. They pause in the heavens (in their latitudinal motion) and then change direction. So there is a pause and change of direction in legal issues and higher education (Jupiter) from the 1st to the 16th; a pause in health and work issues (Mercury) from the 13th to the 16th; and a pause in love and financial issues (Venus) from the 1st to the 3rd.

On October 29 Jupiter travelled out of your sign and back into Pisces, your 12th house. So, spirituality has become important again. A lot of nice things are getting ready to happen and you need to be mentally and spiritually prepared. Focus on your spiritual practice.
We have a lunar eclipse on the 8th that occurs in your money house. This eclipse seems to be very powerful. Firstly, it is a total eclipse. (The Native Americans refer to it as a ‘Blood Moon’.) More important than that is the fact that it impacts three other planets – Mercury, Uranus and Venus. So many areas of your life are affected here. Take a nice easy schedule over that period, for a few days before and after the 8th. Things that need to be done should be done. But non-essentials are better off re-scheduled. (This eclipse is another good reason to focus on your spiritual practice – it is the best way to go through something like this.)
Thus there are financial shake-ups. Your financial thinking – your assumptions – are not realistic and need to be refined. Usually some event reveals this. There are dramas in the lives of friends – life-changing kinds of dramas, which will test friendships. Your high-tech equipment gets tested and can behave erratically. Make sure important files are backed up and that your anti-virus and anti-hacking software is up to date. Don’t open suspicious emails. The love life also gets tested. You’re coming out of a very strong social period and many of you are in relationships. Now they get tested to see how real they are. The impact of the eclipse on Mercury indicates job changes and disruptions at the workplace. You will be making important changes to your health regime in the coming months. Every lunar eclipse affects the home and family; hidden flaws in the home can be revealed under this kind of eclipse. Though not pleasant, this is a good thing. You have the opportunity to correct these flaws. There are dramas in the lives of family members and especially of a parent or parent figure.

Retrograde activity is much less this month. In fact, the planetary power is overwhelmingly forward – 80 per cent of the planets are moving forward. So blocked projects move forward again. The pace of life speeds up – just the way you like it.
Mars has not only been retrograde since October 30 but has been ‘out of bounds’ too. This is the case in the month ahead. You’re outside your normal lane – out of your normal element – and it’s understandable that you would feel a little insecure.
In spite of this, you are successful this month. Your 10th career house is powerful all month, and especially from the 22nd. You are in a yearly career peak. Much progress will be made.
Jupiter will move back into your sign on the 21st – another signal of success. Foreign travel is likely this month. (Your 9th house, which rules such things, is powerful until the 22nd and Jupiter, the planet that rules travel, crosses your Ascendant on the 21st.) There is good fortune for those seeking college admissions and in legal matters.
Three planets are ‘out of bounds’ this month. We have discussed Mars, but Venus and Mercury are also ‘out of bounds’: Venus from the 2nd to the 24th and Mercury from the 1st to the 22nd. Almost all month! So, you are not only outside your lane personally but in love, finance and health as well. You’re in a period where you seek answers outside your normal sphere. You seem forced to think and act ‘outside the box’.
Health needs more attention from the 22nd. As always, make sure to get enough rest. You need to keep your energy levels as high as possible. You can enhance the health with thigh massage and massage of the liver reflex until the 7th. After then, back and knee massage will be beneficial.
