February 2017 – Aries Horoscope

2017
02.07

This will be a very big, bright happy month for you and it may even mark a turning point in your personal life. This month holds two eclipses, and before you start shaking your head, saying, “No more eclipses!” let me assure you these eclipses are friendly and very encouraging. They will arrive as a full moon lunar eclipse in Leo on February 10 and a new moon solar eclipse in Pisces on February 26. Of the two, the big one to watch will be February 10.

In my enthusiasm for your outlook, I am getting ahead of myself. Let’s first talk about the opportunities to grow your sphere of influence through friendships and business contacts. The emphasis in the first nine days of February will be all events you are invited to attend or that look interesting and that you would sign up to do. That includes parties, social mixers, charity and club events, trade shows – even political rallies.

To boost your social popularity and magnetism higher, Venus will move into Aries on February 3 to stay until June 6. You might be saying to yourself, “Wait! Venus only stays in any sign for about 6 weeks. Why is Venus staying three months this time, and in my sign of Aries!” Venus will remain in Aries because Venus will retrograde next month from March 5 to April 15.

This is means that March and April will NOT be the time to change your appearance to a radically different look. Do not go from blonde to brunette, for example, or schedule any experimental dermatological treatments or plastic surgery. Men should not grow a beard or shave one off – keep things stable. Don’t buy new eyeglass frames or make any moves involving your face. It’s fine to do grooming and have hair trims, but radical changes are a no-no in March and April. Act now, while Venus in Aries will be in fine shape. Venus rules love too, but affection will be stronger in February – not in March and April, for when Venus retrogrades, the beam from Venus, planet of love, will be muted.

When any planet goes retrograde, it takes a little time for that planet to ramp up to former strength. For Venus, this time it will take until May 18 to return to former power. For this reason, circulate this month if you are single and hoping to find love. The universe will certainly help you find love and fun this month.

Your big day will be February 10, the full moon lunar eclipse in Leo, 23 degrees, lighting your fifth house of true love, fun with children, opportunity for pregnancy, and great creativity. This full moon eclipse will be a pleasure. When the past eclipses were in Aries and Libra. you learned to buckle up, for those eclipses were tough. (Think back to the time near those eclipses that were to affect you directly: October 18, 2013; April 15, 2014; October 8, 2014; April 4, 2015; September 27, 2015. Some of those may not have been easy for you.)

By contrast, this eclipse, February 10, will be a peach. It will send a beautiful beam to Uranus in Aries (happy surprises). Mars (action and energy) will be in your sign and is your ruler, therefore is weighted more heavily in your favor. Jupiter (giver of gifts and luck) will also be in the wings to shower you with good fortune. What a trio of planets you have to support your every move! The fact that Mars is among them tells me that you will be decisive and ready move forward.

You may find love, or if you are dating seriously, you have a good chance of becoming engaged by Valentine’s Day, February 14. All eclipses have a plus or minus one full week associated with them. As a matter of fact, some eclipses are felt one month to the day earlier (January 10) or one month to the day later (March 10), plus or minus five days.

Full moons are powerful in their own right, as their job is to crystalize prevailing efforts and bring closure, but a full moon eclipse is super powerful, like three full moons rolled into one. This could be very exciting.

If you are attached, you may have become pregnant, gave birth, or plan to do something special for your child. (The fifth house so lit rules conception and birth.) You may travel to a land afar, as Jupiter will want to broaden your perspective. You may now finish up a big creative project, and if so, it would be exceedingly well received. An agent, partner, collaborator, spouse, or established partner appears to be integral to the luck you see now.

With a packed twelfth house of privacy, the new moon solar eclipse, February 26, will find you meditating about what you would like to happen next in your life.

Every member of your sign will enjoy this eclipse. If your birthday falls on April 11, plus or minus five days, you will benefit from this eclipse in an outstanding way. The same is true if you have Aries rising on or near 22 degrees, the moon in Aries in that degree, or a natal planet in Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius at or within five degrees of 22 degrees – in that case, you will do especially well too, and this should work out to be a memorable time in 2017.

I want you to circle these days on your calendar, aside from February 10. Start with February 9, a day that should bring all sorts of romantic, creative, or child-oriented pleasures and surprises due to the Sun and Uranus in ideal angle. The moon will be in divine-for-you sign of Leo.

Also, watch February 11, possibly your very best day of the season when you and a partner will be seeing eye-to-eye and dancing together in a flawless Fred-and Ginger way. It’s clear on this day you are both so very right for each other. Jupiter will send a shimmering beam to the Sun, getting my vote to give this day four stars.

On February 13, remarkably, the Sun and Saturn will be in ideal sync, a great day to sign papers for the creation of a long-lasting relationship. Promises made will be promises kept. The same will be true the next day, Valentine’s Day, February 14, too. On Valentine’s Day, the moon will be in marriage-minded Libra. I am so excited about the aspects on and near Valentine’s Day!

February 21 will be a golden day for a speech, handing in a manuscript, taking a trip, signing a contract, or having a big first meeting. Travel will sparkle too. Mercury and Jupiter will be very friendly, making this a standout day that deserves four stars.

Two days later, February 23, Mercury will be in ideal angle to Saturn, the planet of long-term gain. If you want a promise or agreement to last, make it on February 23.

The major solar eclipse of Sunday, February 26, will fall in Pisces, 8 degrees, the last eclipse in the Virgo and Pisces series that has been going on for two years. With a packed twelfth house of privacy, this new moon eclipse will find you meditating about what you would like to happen next in your life. It will come conjunct Neptune, suggesting that if you work behind the scenes on a creative project, you will get a great deal done. You will work in an inspired way, and you will be capable of creating work of great beauty and grace.

This eclipse will also put an emphasis on your mind, body, and spirit. It will be a perfect time to see a coach or doctor about a fear you may have had, or a dependency on just about any substance or food, so that you can subtract it from your life.

At the same time as the eclipse, Mars, your ruler, now in Aries, will conjoin Uranus in Aries. This is a “hot” aspect, and when you have Uranus the planet of unpredictable events, things could go either way. I am optimistic however, in that Saturn, still in fire sign Sagittarius, will be sending his gifts of stability to a normally highly volatile aspect. I think what comes up will be comforting and calming – and joyfully surprising.

One last thing – I am so happy that Venus AND your ruler, Mars, will both be in Aries. Wow, what a sexy combination this month These two won’t make a conjunction but will get VERY close near February 4-5 and February 6. Your charisma will be very high. If you are single, be open to new people – don’t put up too much barbed wire, dear Aries. By that I mean, don’t have strict perimeters around the type of person you think you are looking to meet. Be open!

If you are attached, Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, is still in your seventh house of marriage (and will be until October 10), allowing you to expand your concept of marriage, to give more and get more in return. If you have not been happy, then you must find a way to leave – not always easy if children are involved, as there are economic considerations. If you think about your situation, with Jupiter in this part of your chart, you can find a way to be free again.

If you are happy, this year, the circle of love will grow. With Jupiter showering you and your partner with golden beams, you will have the power to build a future of great love and affection.

January 2017 – Aries Horoscope

2017
01.03

January is excellent for career and long-term projects, dear Aries, but brand-new objectives and initiatives are best delayed until after the 8th. Before then, work is still very much effective, but editing and refining current projects is best. A conversation or endeavor that seemed to become stuck during Mercury’s retrograde period since December 29th is likely to advance as blocks clear after the 8th. You’re in a fabulous position for rethinking long-term goals or career and business moves.

As always in January, you are in an important career period. However, this year, there is considerable emphasis on healing, resting, and tying up loose ends. Attention to your health is important now, and you might gather the motivation or energy to handle a matter that has been on your mind for some time. Extra rest can do you very well in the first weeks of January. Certainly, with Mars moving into your sign on the 28th and Venus soon to follow (on February 3rd), you have a lot to prepare for in advance. Learning your heart’s desire is important now so that when you’re ready to pursue it, you know which direction to head!

The Full Moon on the 12th is conflict-ridden yet highly revealing and romantic as well – an interesting combination. It’s a time for discovering your feelings on a matter and then redirecting your life in fundamental ways with this new knowledge in mind. Home life can need extra attention. Jupiter moves closer to a sextile with Saturn but doesn’t quite make it as it slows down and heads to a retrograde, beginning in February, and you may be nearing a goal but not quite reaching it. Delays are possible, but they likely play in your favor. It’s best not to rush a good thing!

Dates to slow down and take in rather than push forward: the 19th and 27th. Particularly on the 19th when Mars, your ruler, challenges Saturn, it’s important to pull back and reassess rather than push something that isn’t ready to happen. In the last week of January, the New Moon and then Mars entering your sign pull you up and out of yourself. You should be feeling re-energized, decisive, and confident as you end the month.

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until January 19th:

The Sun continues to put a spotlight on your solar tenth house. Satisfaction and fulfillment during this cycle come from doing your professional best, shining as a responsible and capable person, and contributing to the world in practical ways. You might have a chance to receive acknowledgement or praise for your work or good character now. Landing support from authority figures is easier at this time. Avoid the pitfalls of pride or arrogance standing in your way of success.

From January 19th forward:

The Sun lights your solar eleventh house. The Sun illuminates your sector of friends, groups, and dreams coming true this month. It’s a sociable sector of your chart, and that’s exactly how you are feeling–happy, light-hearted, cosmopolitan, and social. Group affiliations capture your attention. Connections can be made now and networking pays off, or at least satisfies. Being part of a community or circle of friends and building your social network is important to you at this time. This is a rather happy, goal-oriented cycle. A lively agenda is promised, you’re attracting quite a bit of interest, and your energy for making contact with others is high. A stronger sense of community is with you during this cycle. Relationships take on a fun, if impersonal, tone now. Activities with children (especially others’ children) may increase. You are more stimulated by all that is unconventional during this cycle, and your ideas are original and progressive now. This is a time to follow your dreams and ideals, and to plant a seed in the form of a wish for the future.

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

Until January 3rd: 

Venus continues to move through your solar eleventh house. This is a strong time for putting your ego aside and lowering your defenses and simply enjoying people. It’s a good time for networking and settling disputes if there are differences to iron out with friends. Cooperation comes easily, and warm friendships can be made during this cycle. Personal freedom is especially important to you right now, and you won’t enjoy any associations that limit you. It can also be a good time for earnings from business.

From January 3rd forward: 

Venus is spending some time in “hibernation” in your privacy sector. Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean that your love life is stagnant, but that your affection is expressed behind closed doors. Attraction to secrets and whispers characterize this period, although for some, it can also be a time of endings, relationship concerns, and wistfulness. Personal and social contacts may be secretive, and there can be secret love affairs, or at least very private love feelings and longings. Shyness can lead to some loneliness or romantic frustration. However, this can also be a deliciously private and intimate time.

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from December 19th to January 8th:

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 ninth and tenth houses this time, extra care should be used when communicating with superiors and co-workers, and regarding travel or education plans. Delays are very possible. You may be re-thinking things regarding your life path, but it’s best to think rather than act for now, as your judgment may be compromised. It would be wise to be especially clear when it comes to communicating with co-workers, professors, lawyers, and family members, or take this time to re-examine issues rather than communicating about them prematurely.

From January 12th: 

Mercury transits your solar tenth house. You are likely thinking a lot about your career and business matters, or your career requires more communication than usual during this cycle. You speak with authority during this period, and you are more accountable than usual for what (and how) you communicate. Your ideas may come into public view now. Use the power of words to influence authority figures. This is an excellent period for developing career and professional plans or strategies. You may be turned to for advice or for your opinion on important matters. Although approachable and ready to communicate, you are less inclined towards chatting about frivolous matters now. You tend to think about your position or standing on a professional level more frequently during this cycle. You are likely doing some multi-tasking regarding career and business matters. Negative use of this influence would be to worry unnecessarily about your reputation and responsibilities.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

Until January 28th:

Mars continues to energize your solar twelfth house now. While Mars occupies the twelfth house, asserting yourself in a direct and straightforward manner can be difficult. This is largely due to a feeling of not being in touch with what it is you want or desire just for the time being as you reassess your goals and needs. This lack of direction and self-knowledge should prompt you to look within to learn about your desires. It is likely that you will be much clearer when Mars reaches your first house. For the time being, take some time for rest and give your ego a break.

From January 28th forward: 

You are able to stand your ground and assert yourself more than usual during this transit of Mars through your solar first house. You have energy at your disposal to move your plans forward, and you are more enterprising. You want to leave your mark on the world in some way–however big or small–and you are more able to make an impression than usual. If circumstances are such, you are able to easily fight back. In fact, you may be somewhat combative under this influence, and you may have a short temper. Avoid being pushy. Take charge of your life, but don’t bulldoze over others in the process! This is an excellent transit for assertiveness and physical vitality. Love affairs may also be stepped up during this period. On the rare occasion when an accident occurs, it is more likely to involve the head or face.
