A challenging and eventful month ahead Aries - especially for those of you born early in the sign (March 20 to 23rd). First off, retrograde activity will be at its maximum for the year from the 23rd to the 25th. But even after the 25th 50% of the planets - that’s half of the planetary power - will be in retrograde. So, there are many delays, glitches and a slow pace of life - something you’re not comfortable with. And, as if that weren’t enough, we have two eclipses this month - a Lunar Eclipse on the 5th and a Solar Eclipse on the 21st. Health will need more watching this month as well - especially from the 21st onwards. So make sure to get enough rest. Make sure to eat right and keep your emotional state in harmony. Meditation will be a big help. The Lunar Eclipse of the 5th occurs in your 9th house and can impact on college level students - they make important changes to their educational plans. If you are involved in legal issue they will need attention now. There can be dramas at home and with family members. The Solar Eclipse of the 21st occurs in your 4th house of home and family and so once again the family and family members have dramas. Repairs can be needed in the home. Children and children figures are also impacted by this eclipse. Avoid speculations that period and take a nice easy schedule. Mars is also impacted by this Solar Eclipse so you probably need to redefine yourself and create a new image and a new presentation to the world.
The main headlines this month are the two eclipses and increase in retrograde activity, however these seem more benign to you than to others. You’re a patient person and can handle retrograde activity better than others. The eclipses are relatively mild on you. Sure you will feel them but they don’t seem like knockout blows. Also your health is basically good. (It won’t hurt to take an easier schedule during the eclipse periods on the 5th and the 21st.) In spite of the eclipses, the month ahead will be prosperous. You’re still in the midst of a yearly financial peak - in fact the eclipses can help in this area. Your financial planet, Mercury, will go retrograde on the 18th, so try to wrap up important purchases (expensive items) and financial decisions before then, the Lunar Eclipse of the 5th occurs in your 8th house and shows that the spouse, partner or current love is forced to make important financial changes. There can be exposure to death and near death experiences (perhaps involving siblings, sibling figures or neighbors). Generally these are psychological encounters, rarely are they literal. This eclipse will test cars and communication equipment too. The Solar Eclipse of the 21s will also test cars and communication equipment. Often repairs or replacement are necessary. The Solar Eclipse impacts on the home and family and brings dramas in their lives. Repairs could be needed in the home.
Although the month ahead is eventful - never a dull moment - it should be happy and prosperous. Your 1st house is powerful, so you are in a period of maximum personal independence. You can and should have things your way. Health is good - only two planets are in stressful alignment with you, and one of them (Mars) will move into harmonious alighnemtn after the 23rd. You look good as well. The Sun in your sign gives star quality to the image. Venus in you sign all month gives beauty, grace and a natural sense of style. Even two eclipses this month should not dampen your happiness too much. The Lunar Eclipse of the 5th occurs in your 7th house and will test your current love relationship. Often it is not the relationship itself that is the problem, but personal dramas in the life of the beloved. Since the eclipsed planet, the Moon, is your financial planet, there are important financial changes happening. Your approach and strategy could be unrealistic and needs to be changed. The Solar Eclipse of the 21st also impacts on finance as it occurs in your money house. There can be dramas in the lives of the money people in your life as well. Your money house starts to become powerful from the 21st onwards as well. So you are in a yearly financial peak. The changes you make will be good changes - but while they’re happening can be stressful. Mercury, the Lord of your Horoscope, goes retrograde on the 18th. You can have things your way but problem is you’re not sure what you want.
Two eclipses this month impact strongly on you (especially those of your born June 21-23). So take it nice and easy those periods. Both eclipses impact strongly on you personality, body and self image. In coming months you will be making important changes to your self concept - how you think of yourself and you want others to think of you. So there is much soul searching going on this month. Now every Lunar Eclipse produces this kind of phenomena and you get two or three every year. But this set of eclipses is different. BOTH the Lunar Eclipse of the 5th and the Solar Eclipse of the 21st are having the same effect. You need to define yourself for yourself or others will define you and that won’t be so pleasant. The Solar Eclipse of the 21st occurs in your sign and affects the financial life. Major changes are taking place. The problem is with so many retrogrades more caution is needed. In spite of the changes the month ahead will be prosperous. The Sun, your financial planet, will be in your sign from 21st onward. This brings windfalls and happy financial opportunities. Love seems happy - opportunities are there for singles - and good ones. But all the planets that are involved in your love life are retrograde. So things are moving slower than usual. This is a time for gaining clarity in love. Good to do a review rather than take actions. Mars moves into your 10th house on the 23rd. So the career seems active. You have to be more aggressive in the career - more proactive.
Be patient this month as retrograde activity is at the maximum for the year. Things are slowing down in the world and in your life. The retrograde of Mercury, your financial planet, will be stronger than the usual retrograde (from the 18th onwards). This is because 4 and sometimes 5 other planets will also be retrograde at the same time. So finance can be slower and with more glitches and annoyances. Earnings however will come. We have two eclipses this month - and both affect your spiritual life - your teachings, teachers and practice. There are going to be dramas and disruptions in spiritual or charitable organizations that you’re involved with as well. The Lunar Eclipse of the 5th occurs in your 5th house and impacts on children and children figures in your life - keep them out of harms way this period. Since the eclipsed planet the Moon is your spiritual planet, it reinforces what we mentioned earlier bout spiritual changes. This Lunar Eclipse also impacts on Mars and Venus. So this is not an especially good time for foreign travel (Mars rules this in your Horoscope). If you must travel schedule the trip before of after the eclipse period. (This period is not so great even for domestic travel). Cars and communication equipment will get tested. The Solar Eclipse of the 21st occurs in your 12th house of spirituality and reinforces what we have mentioned above. Every Solar Eclipse is strong on you, so take it nice and easy. This is a time for re-defining yourself - for upgrading your image and presentation to the world. This will go on for a few more months.
Venus, your financial planet, is still retrograde until the 25th so your job is to gain clarity in financial matters - about your goals and methods. This will pay dividends after wards when Venus starts to move forward again. Venus’ retrograde will be stronger than usual as there are many other planets retrograde at the same time. So be patient, everything will work out in the end. For sure avoid an major financial decisions or large purchases. Get more facts. You’re still in a yearly career peak and this is where the focus should be. You seem idealistic about the career. You want something meaningful - something soul satisfying. If you’re in a worldly career it might be good to get involved in charitable or altruistic activities - this will advance things. Pay raises are still likely this month - though this can happen with delays. We have two eclipses this month. The Lunar Eclipse of the 5th occurs in your 4th house of home and family and can bring dramas in the lives of family members. Repairs could be needed in the home. Since Mars and Venus are also impacted by this eclipse, there can be encounters with death (usually on the psychological level), near death experiences or recommendations for surgery. The spouse, partner or current love is forced to make important financial changes and the same hold true for you. The Solar Eclipse of the 21st occurs in your 11th house of friends. So there are dramas and life changing events in their lives. High tech gadgets and equipment get tested and often repair or replacement is necessary. Every Solar Eclipse impacts on your spiritual life and this one is no different. Usually there is some revelation that takes you to the next level and you change your practice.
Two eclipses this month impact you strongly so take a nice easy schedule those periods. You should rest and relax more from the 21st onwards anyway, but especially around the eclipse periods. Health needs more watching from the 21st onwards. There are many planets in stressful alignment with you and this makes you more vulnerable to opportunities invasions. So rest more. Schedule more massages or other health treatments. Focus on the really important things in your life and let go of the trivia. Foot massage and spiritual healing techniques are always good. Exercise and face, scalp and head massage are good until the 23rd. After the 23rd focus on spiritual healing techniques. If you feel under the weather see a spiritual type healer. This is a strong career month - especially after the 21st. Both of the eclipses this month are showing career changes and dramas in the lives of people involved in your career - bosses, elders, parents and parent figures. These career changes should be positive as you are in a strong career period, but even the positive can be disruptive. The Lunar Eclipse of the 5th occurs in your 3rd house and impacts on siblings, sibling figures and neighbors - there are dramas in their lives. Cars and communication equipment get tested. Mars and Venus are both impacted by this eclipse so there are love challenges. A current relationship gets tested. The impact on Venus shows a need to redefine yourself - your image and presentation to the world. This will go on for a few more months. It is a process. The Solar Eclipse of the 21st is especially strong on you (especially those of you born October 21 to October 23). Also it occurs on the Midheaven of your chart - amplifying its power. This eclipse will impact on your high tech gadgetry and often requires repair or replacement. Make sure all your files are backed up properly. Every Solar Eclipse impacts on your friends, so there are dramas in their live - life changing kinds of dramas.
Health is good this month and will get even better after the 21st. Still with two eclipses happening it is good to take an easy schedule during the eclipse periods. The Lunar Eclipse of the 5th occurs in your money house showing dramatic financial changes. However don’t be in too much of a rush to make the changes as your financial planet is still retrograde. Study things more. Look before you leap. This eclipse impacts on college level students. They are making important changes to their educational plans. Sometimes they change schools or majors or make other kinds of changes. (The Solar Eclipse of the 21st also impacts college students in more or less the same way.) Mars and Venus are impacted by this eclipse. The impact on Mars can bring health scares - but these are likely to be no more than that - health is good. But in coming months it will bring changes to the health regime. Job changes are also likely. The impact on Venus will test the love life and especially a current relationship. The Solar Eclipse of the 21st impact on the career. Every Solar Eclipse impacts on the career and this one is no different. So career changes are afoot. There dramas in your corporate hierarchy and with parents or parent figures in your life. Finances are still excellent though the retrogrades of the planets involved in your finances are slowing things down. There may be delays, but prosperity is happening.
Two eclipses this month are strong on you Sagittarius, so take it nice and easy those periods. The Lunar Eclipse of the 5th occurs in your sign. This will spur a re-evaluation of yourself - your image and presentation to the world. You will change the way that you define yourself and the way you want others to perceive you. If you haven’t been careful in dietary matters it can bring a detox of the physical body. Every Lunar Eclipse brings encounters with death (generally on the psychological level) there is a need to come to terms with it and understand it in a deeper way. (The Solar Eclipse of the 21st will also produce this kind of phenomena.) Sometimes there are dreams of death or the deaths or near deaths of people that you know. Sometimes surgeries are recommended. The spouse, partner or current love is having financial changes (the Solar Eclipse of the 21st will also bring this.) Mars and Venus are also impacted by this eclipse. Thus there can be dramas in the family and with children or children figures (Mars) and drams in the lives of friends (Venus) and perhaps job changes or changes in working conditions (Venus). There will be changes in your health regime in coming months. The Solar Eclipse of the 21st occurs in your 8th house and reinforces what we said above. It also impacts on college level students. They can change schools or educational plans. Not a good idea to be traveling this period.
Health becomes more delicate after the 21st so be sure to get enough rest and maintain high energy levels. Two eclipses are testing your love life this month. The Lunar Eclipse of 5th occurs in your 12th house of spirituality bringing spiritual changes and upheavals in a charitable or spiritual organization that you belong to - these seem dramatic. The eclipsed planet, the Moon, is your love planet and so a current relationship is being tested. Of itself this is no big deal. You go through this a few times a year. But this testing seems stronger than usual. For it will be followed by a Solar Eclipse on the 21st that occurs in your 7th house. The love life gets two shakeups instead of the normal one shakeup. There can be dramas in the home and family too as Mars is impacted. Career changes are also afoot as Venus is affected. There are dramas in the lives of parents, parent figures and bosses. Children and children figures are also impacted. They should all take a reduced schedule around the eclipse period. The Solar Eclipse of the 21st is also strong on you - and especially for those of you born December 21 to 23. Since the Sun rules your 8th house it can bring dramatic financial shakeups for the spouse, partner or current love. There is a need for a change of strategy. It can also bring encounters with death (generally psychological encounters) or near death kinds of experiences (close calls) and sometimes surgery. You go through this twice a year, so by now you know how to handle it. The purpose is for you to get a deeper understanding of it and get over the fear of it.
Health is good this month and part of the reason is that you’re very focused here. Two eclipses this month impact on the health and the health regime. Sometimes it brings health scares but because health is good it won’t bring pathology. Just a scare. More likely they will bring changes in the health regime in coming months. Major changes. Job changes are also likely. If you employ others there can be turnover and dramas in their lives. Children and children figures are making important financial changes - dramatic ones. The Lunar Eclipse of the 5th occurs in your 11th house of friends and brings dramas in their lives. Computers and high tech equipment get tested. They tend to behave erratically. Protest yourself against hackers and fishing schemes. Don’t open e-mails from people you don’t know. The Moon, the eclipsed planet, is your health and work planet - hence the dramas here which we mentioned. This eclipse also impacts on Mars and Venus. Thus cars and communication equipment (Mars) will get tested. Often repairs and/or replacement are necessary. A good idea to drive more defensively that period. Also a good idea to avoid foreign travel that period (Venus). Family members are more emotional and having crisis. The Solar Eclipse of the 21st occurs in your 6th house of health and work, again emphasizing these areas. But the Solar Eclipse impacts on the love life and your current relationship. There are dramas here. Dirty laundry comes up to be resolved. If the spouse acts erratically take it with a grain of salt. It is not forever only short term eclipse phenomena.
Though the Solar Eclipse of the 21st can bring a health scare, health is basically good this month especially after the 21st. Its probably nothing more than a scare. The body is an energy system and responds to energetic changes. So it is possible to manifest symptoms without anything being actually wrong. Most likely there will be changes in your health regime in coming months and possible job changes. The Lunar Eclipse of the 5th is the stronger of the two eclipses on you. So take a nice easy schedule that period. It occurs in your 10th house of career signaling career dramas and changes. There are dramas in the lives of bosses, parents, parent figures and elders - people in authority over you. The Moon rules your children (of children figures in your life) and so they are impacted. They should take an easier schedule this period. Mars and Venus are impacted by this eclipse. Thus you are forced to make important financial changes. Your financial thinking, planning or strategy haven’t been realistic and the events of the eclipse will show you why. The impact on Venus, will impact on two areas of your life - siblings, sibling figures and neighbors and the income of the spouse partner or current love. He or she will also have to make important financial changes. A good idea to drive more carefully that period. The Solar Eclipse of 21st tests the health as we mentioned, and also impacts on the children or children figures in your life - their finances especially. Job changes can be happening for you in coming months as well.
