Overview for this Month: Aries (All)

May 2016

The month ahead is an excellent one for getting your bearings, dear Aries. You are encouraged to slow down, work things out, draw on patience, and build and develop - and the sooner you accept this kind of pace, the better the rewards!

With so much retrograde activity these days, Jupiter's direct motion on the 9th can feel especially good. Motivation for work and health programs increases. Projects that had stalled or were left behind might now resume, pick up speed, or turn a corner. The next several months are excellent for benefits from work, services, and health. For now, you're easing forward.

Overall this should be a calmer, less visible month for you, and it does you some good. There can be a stronger focus on personal finances, personal possessions, resources, and business. You are exploring different ways of building your sense of value and worthiness. Money issues or sources of income may change and there can be some reshuffling to do. Ultimately, you could be finding ways to increase your income or your earning potential.

You can be more productive than usual this month, particularly if you focus your energies on works in progress. Save big launches for later, but work at editing and revising - it can lead to great things. You might enjoy recognition for past work, and you can quite effectively work on or revive old projects that are likely to have long-term appeal and profitability. There can be important discoveries. You might experience renewed interest in a work project or a health and wellness program. For some of you, social and romantic opportunities may be found through business or work.

The Sun enters your communications sector on the 20th, and Venus follows suit on the 24th. This brings a busier, more connected theme to your life. The 21-22 can be complicated. Your ruler, Mars, is retrograde all month. It is only during its retrograde periods that Mars forms its opposition to the Sun, every two years or so. This happens on the 22nd, when Mercury stations and just after a Full Moon occurs. The temptation may be to push to have your way, when in fact this is an opportune moment to take the time to feel, learn about, and understand your desires and drives. Frustration can center on intellectual planes this time around, so watch for speaking prematurely or making too much of something said. Make safety an important priority, as impatience can lead to errors in judgment.

On the 26th, Jupiter and Saturn form their final square in a set that began last summer, and this serves as a reminder to pay attention to rules and limits. Think in terms of priorities and look for ways to cut back and simplify your life. Mars moves back into your solar eighth house on the 27th, where it will spend its final month in retrograde motion. There may be the need to revisit financial matters, issues of support, and debts. Ambiguity with finances, particularly debts and shared money or resources, could dominate now, or financial affairs require a second look. An old relationship that ended poorly may occupy your thoughts, or an old lover may return. There can be magnification of unexplored desires. This is a time for exploring anger and assertion over deeply buried matters, and finding better tools for managing your life on an emotional level.

May 2016

 

Aries the RamOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until May 20th:

The Sun continues to transit your solar second house. This is the most "financial" period of the year for you. You might have a more materialistic view of life for the time being, or you have an increased interest in your own possessions, during this cycle. You are more attracted to objects and possessions that give you a sense of comfort, status, or luxury now. You probably should be on the lookout for a tendency to create your own financial stress due to extravagant spending habits. At this point in the year, you are unlikely to take many risks, however, and you can be quite resistant to change. This is a time when "comfort zones" are more important to you than usual--you value the familiar.

From May 20th forward:The Sun is illuminating your communications sector now, suggesting "busy-ness" and movement. You are exploring and searching now, making connections, and paying attention to your immediate environment. Social interaction is emphasized during this period, and is for the most part light-hearted. Give other people a little extra time and attention, notice their efforts on your behalf, and strengthen your connections. You are more curious and alert than usual, and you could be quite busy with errands, paperwork, phone calls, and light socializing. Much energy is expended in understanding and adapting to your immediate environment. Siblings, neighbors, close relatives, friends, and co-workers may play a more important role than usual in your life during this cycle. You are more interested in exploring your own neighborhood than you are a different country. This is not a time of big adventure-seeking. Rather, it's a time of little adventures close to home. Neither is this a time when you are especially focused. In fact, you could have a finger in many pies right now. You are especially resourceful now, and you could find yourself enjoying (or seeking) attention for your intellectual know-how. The ability to express and communicate your ideas is extremely important to you at this time. You are eager to investigate new things, whether scientific or technical.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until May 24th:Venus continues to grace your solar second house during this period. You might receive gifts or bonuses now, or you find much comfort in what you already own and have. You may be a little extravagant with money for the time being, as your desire for luxury and comfort items is increased now, and this is something to watch for. When it comes to love, you value those who make you feel comfortable and secure.

From May 24th forward:With Venus moving through your solar third house during this period, you are mostly cheerful in your approach to others, and perhaps somewhat intellectual, during this transit. Essentially, you are quite companionable now. You enjoy talking about what interests you, and you find great value in the exchange of ideas. Sometimes this transit brings benefit through siblings, communications, or short trips. During this period, you are most attracted to wit, cheerfulness, and verbal rapport. You are especially good at mediating conflicts. Smoothing over differences using your diplomacy skills figures now.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 28th to May 22nd:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications in general and job or health-related communications because Mercury rules these areas of your life. There can be delays or rethinking with these matters.

Occurring in your solar second house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to new financial initiatives. There may be the need to revisit old, nagging issues regarding personal finances. Take this time to re-budget instead of making premature purchases. Hold off on major decision-making regarding money. Instead, take the time to re-think your sources of income and how you spend your cash during this period, but put off finalizing anything important for the time being. In fact, some money-making ideas or ventures may be put on hold due to circumstances beyond your control. This is an excellent period for review, however.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from April 17-June 29

All Mars retrograde cycles affect you on a highly personal level because Mars is your sign's ruler. If you have an Aries Ascendant, Mars is your chart ruler, and Mars retrograde can also affect you on the physical plane as well as your personal presentation or image to others. You don't assert yourself or state what it is that you want as directly as you normally do, and you could be withdrawn and introspective, pulling back from life a little as you figure out what it is that you truly want from it. Pushing yourself during this Mars retrograde cycle will only lead to frustrations and slowdowns. It's time to review how you have been handling yourself in terms of self-assertion and expression of anger in general, and for considering making changes to your approach to getting what you want out of life.

From April 17th to May 27th:

Occurring in your solar ninth house during this period, enthusiasm for higher education, travel, your personal philosophy, or adventure in general may wane, perhaps due to some problems or setbacks in these areas of life. Some projects may stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in adventurous ways. Your outlook on life in terms of the "bigger picture" could be more cautious, and you might find that you temporarily have less faith, or you are questioning the faith that has carried you to date. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended now. Your outlook and lust for life, for the time being, might not be as natural or spontaneous as it has been.

From May 27th to June 29th:

Occurring in your solar eighth house this time, enthusiasm for intimate and sharing matters in general may wane, perhaps due to some problems or setbacks in these areas of life. Intimate matters may become more intense and complicated. Joint financial projects or initiatives may stall, or you could find that you are less confident about expressing yourself in personal ways. A lover or yourself may especially intense or obsessive. Ambiguity with finances, particularly debts and shared money or resources, could dominate now. There can be magnification of fears and phobias, unexplored desires, and addictions now. Refocus, backtracking, and review become necessary and recommended. You could be exploring anger and assertion over deeply buried matters, and learning to better manage your life on an emotional level.

May 2016 Career, & General Trends
 

May 2016

 

Aries the RamOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

All month:

The Sun highlights your second house now, and your focus is on material affairs and comfort issues. Security is a driving force for you at the moment, and you might find that you are especially interested in accumulating possessions. What you have and what you don't have come into focus--what makes you feel comfortable, your sense of security, and what you value. This is the time of year when personal finances and possessions receive maximum attention. Pour your energy into your work and your finances, and you might just be able to take your ideas to the bank. Extravagance with your pocketbook is something you may want to look out for, however. If you find yourself itching to make unnecessary purchases, know that at the root of this urge is the desire to pamper and comfort yourself. Nothing wrong with it, but there are inexpensive (and even free) ways to make yourself feel good. This is not the most eventful time of year for you. You are more inclined to dig in your heels and hang on to what makes you feel most secure than to take big risks.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until May 8th:Venus continues to grace your solar first house now. Something about how you present yourself, your image, and your manner boosts your personal magnetism during this cycle. It's a good time to attract who and what you want into your life experience. You're more charming and you are likely to want to attract things to you indirectly rather than forcefully now, perhaps through charm and playfulness. You have a stronger need to be good to yourself, although a negative expression of this placement can be excessive attention to pampering oneself or taking the easy way out. You especially enjoy making a good impression on others, and peace-making. You might also be paying more attention to beauty and style now.

From May 8th forward:As the natural ruler of the second house, Venus feels right "at home" here. This is a rather content position for Venus, although there can be some restlessness when it comes to money and spending it—you are more inclined to want more things around you! Financial security and enjoyment of the good things in life are important to you, although you also value simple pleasures. The ability to relate well with others might enhance your own personal finances during this period. You may find yourself in a position in which there is a blending of financial matters with social or public affairs. This is a stable position for love matters and close relationships. You value those who make you feel comfortable, and familiarity is more important to you than someone new during this cycle.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 28th to May 22nd:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications in general and job or health-related communications because Mercury rules these areas of your life. There can be delays or rethinking with these matters.

Occurring in your solar second house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to new financial initiatives. There may be the need to revisit old, nagging issues regarding personal finances. Take this time to re-budget instead of making premature purchases. Hold off on major decision-making regarding money. Instead, take the time to re-think your sources of income and how you spend your cash during this period, but put off finalizing anything important for the time being. In fact, some money-making ideas or ventures may be put on hold due to circumstances beyond your control. This is an excellent period for review, however.

From May 22nd forward - Mercury is direct:

With Mercury in your solar second house, this is a strong period for analyzing your cash flow, income, and earning power. You are more practical and rational in your approach to finances during this period. With your conscious mind focused on money and possessions, as well as personal values, this can be a strong period for gathering new money-making ideas. Alternatively, it could be a time when you tend to fret over your finances. Conversations tend to be practical rather than frivolous now. Financial gain may come through communications.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Mars is retrograde from April 17-June 29

All Mars retrograde cycles affect you on a highly personal level because Mars is your sign's ruler. If you have an Aries Ascendant, Mars is your chart ruler, and Mars retrograde can also affect you on the physical plane as well as your personal presentation or image to others. You don't assert yourself or state what it is that you want as directly as you normally do, and you could be withdrawn and introspective, pulling back from life a little as you figure out what it is that you truly want from it.

Aries the RamOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until May 10th:

The Sun continues to move through your solar first house. You experience a renewal of energy and vitality now, and it's a strong time for increased personal confidence. The emphasis is on self-expression, what kind of impression you make on others, and beginning new personal projects. You are a little more self-centered than usual, and this is quite natural and healthy as long as you don't take it too far. You are more decisive and forward-looking now, and you put more faith in your own abilities. Physically, you are likely feeling strong. This is an excellent cycle for making personal changes in your manner or appearance, and for any self-improvement endeavors. Personal projects that you begin now are likely to blossom nine months down the road.

From May 10th forward:

The Sun highlights your second house now, and your focus is on material affairs and comfort issues. Security is a driving force for you at the moment, and you might find that you are especially interested in accumulating possessions. What you have and what you don't have come into focus--what makes you feel comfortable, your sense of security, and what you value.

You are more inclined to dig in your heels and hang on to what makes you feel most secure than to take big risks.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until May 16th:Venus continues to grace your solar first house now. Something about how you present yourself, your image, and your manner boosts your personal magnetism during this cycle. It's a good time to attract who and what you want into your life experience. You're more charming and you are likely to want to attract things to you indirectly rather than forcefully now, perhaps through charm and playfulness. You have a stronger need to be good to yourself, although a negative expression of this placement can be excessive attention to pampering oneself or taking the easy way out.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 28th to May 22nd:

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications in general and job or health-related communications because Mercury rules these areas of your life. There can be delays or rethinking with these matters.

Occurring in your solar first and second houses this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to new financial initiatives and body language. Reviewing your budget rather than jumping into new purchases is in order now. Go over any financial documents carefully. Others may misinterpret your body language, and you should be aware of a tendency to give off mixed signals. People in your life may complain that you seem emotionally distant. You may appear uncommunicative and hard to reach, or what you say comes out wrong. Don't worry too much if others aren't quite "getting" you for the time being. Things will change once Mercury turns direct, so you might decide to try to keep status quo for the time being. Take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

From May 22nd forward - Mercury is direct:

With Mercury in your solar first house, you are most inclined to speak up about matters that you previously were only mulling over. Your disposition is more intellectual than usual now, and self-expression comes easily. You are sharper than usual--more observant, and more inclined to "live in the head". Relationships with siblings, neighbors, classmates, and casual friends may become more prominent in your life now. It is likely that you will initiate discussions during this period, evaluate your appearance and the impact you have on those around you, and make contact with others rather than stay chained to any one place or activity. This is the time to be direct and to communicate your needs and interests. You are more inclined to talk about yourself and your personal past now. This may also be a restless time when it is difficult to turn the thinking process off when it would be better to relax! It is an especially fruitful time for any endeavor that requires dealing with words, ideas, and facts and figures. Your demeanor is more youthful, perhaps mischievous, light-hearted, and non-threatening so that others may be more inclined to turn to you for advice or pleasant conversation. Using the power of words to attract what you want or to further your interests works best for you now.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage
