Aries

MAR 21 - APR 19

Change of Pace

This is a busy month when it comes to astrology, Aries. It could encourage a number of shifts and changes in your circumstances and your attitude toward life. The sun in the sign of Libra means you’ll get a lot of enjoyment out of being around others, whether interacting or working as a couple or a team. With lovely Venus also in this convivial sign, you’ll have no problem smoothing over difficulties, negotiating and collaborating. If you want to spend some quality time with your partner, this is a good time for that too.

This month, chatty Mercury turns direct on October 2. Radical Pluto follows suit on the eighth and prudent Saturn two weeks after that. To top it off, feisty Mars, your personal planet, turns retrograde on October 30 and remains so until January 12, 2023. You’ll be able to move ahead in areas that have been blocked, but there could be slowdowns or complications in matters of communication.

Things could get emotional around the time of the full moon in your sign on the ninth, bringing an opportunity to clear the air. A matter that had been swept under the carpet could blow up and be quite heated. Go easy.

Things become more intense when luscious Venus and the sun move into Scorpio on October 23. The coming weeks bring a chance for change in key areas, but you’ll first need to let go of whatever is holding you back.

The chance for a dynamic new beginning comes with the solar eclipse in Scorpio on the twenty-fifth. This eclipse aligns with lovely Venus, so its energy could influence relationships, money, a creative venture or a business. A good start will lead to a good result.

Finally, jovial Jupiter moves back into Pisces on October 27, which can boost your intuition. In matters of the heart and spirit, you’ll get a head start and be well prepared for when it moves back into your sign on December 20. Then you can hit the ground running.
