Diana's Monthly Aries Forecast for July 2016
Until the 22nd your attention could centre around a base of operations, community or family matters or extended family. Property matters – buying/selling/home improvements may features, or it may be about the past in the present or sharing. In some respects your gaze will tend to be more inwards and you may be pondering more, or feeling things more deeply. Listen to your instincts!
Until the 14th the mental focus could revolve around family, extended family, neighbours, or property matters. Correspondence and discussions may be about a physical space inside/outside, or points on the map. You may be mulling things over or feeling more emotional or nostalgic. There may be communications with relations or parents for some of you and others may be considering a legacy or a tradition of some kind. Whatever is going on feelings tend to be nearer the surface and certain interchanges may touch a nerve. Either way it tends to be a mentally busy or social time in, around or about a base of operations – wherever that is – or you may be on the move more.
From the 14th Mercury is in a more innovative sector of your Solar chart. Now you enjoy playing with ideas and speculating, maybe a little wildly, on this or that or the other possibility. But, whatever you are doing, there may be more laughs or distractions along the way. Your creative juices are flowing and you are more articulate which may help with beating the drum on something. There’s likely to be increased communications either with or about young people, lovers or pets. Also, you could be more romantically expressive or creatively inspired at this time.
Until the 12th Venus beams a friendly, sociable light into the root of your chart. This can manifest in various ways. Overall, it encourages a more harmonious time at home and you welcome others into your space or are more the visitor to others. Or, it could be a venue where you all meet up. It could be a good time to appreciate family or tribal connections, or maybe you like where you are located. You may feel the urge to beautify your surroundings or make more of your space inside or outside. Good for property search or relocation as long as other aspects are favourable.
From the 12th the position of Venus can mean a sociable more playful period perhaps making new friends or enjoying old associations. Maybe a boost to your love-life, and some of you could be tying the knot with that special person. You are likely to express yourself in freer or more creative ways and there may be more frequent connections with children, younger people, pets or partners. In general, this energy links you more to anything you personally find empowering or satisfying so, leisure, performance type activities are emphasized. And, most importantly, puts you in touch with your own playful inner child.
Mars is in the sector of your solar chart which clears the decks for new beginnings. So that may mean a de-clutter, or some kind of re-set is in the pipe-line. Or maybe ditching an ailing, stale or chronic situation thus clearing the decks for new beginnings . Whether it’s a re-think, a de-tox or a Spring Clean, this Mars position emphasizes something shared, or over which you do not have sole control. Then a shift, a transition as emotions or intuition drive a change. You could be more sensitive to feelings or needs of others and you may have to bite your tongue or be more confidential or strategic in your actions. For some Mars here may mean an intense or sizzley interchange with someone special.
From the 22nd there’s a brighter, less inward, vibration around. So that could manifest as more opportunities to be in environments with scope for play or creativity or empowering activities. Or to be more involved with those in party mood whether as a participant or a facilitator. More emphasis is given to children, youngsters or romantic partners for some, and for others, there could be more socializing and maybe more contact with arts/entertainments or the leisure industry. You are more likely to feel the light of appreciation from others or be participating in activities you find fun or personally empowering.
STRINGS TO YOUR BOW
Jupiter will be in your area of health & work until September and there will be no shortage of opportunities to learn and grow through employment matters, colleagues, daily duties, but also health and fitness. The indications are that you will get the chance to experience new work or health routines until August. Employers or colleagues will tend to be more appreciative of your abilities and your contribution.
Ariens born 5th-12th April or with 16-23 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this month.
TESTING IDEALS AND BELIEFS
Saturn is in Sagittarius til late 2017 putting her in a supportive aspect with your sign. This is a cycle of getting educated or gaining insights about beliefs or fields of interest, mental and physical. You will be seeing the reality, warts and all, of higher education or something you previously idealized or knew little about. You may feel more responsibility because of any of these areas or have to take more seriously wider communications, travel or legal matters. Developing a new understanding will be gradual like chipping a shape out of stone. So be steady and patient. You may gain a reputation for communicating your knowledge or experience through some medium of expression. But also appreciate and even wish to emulate certain others who can teach you a lot. Ariens born 29th March-1st April or with 9-12 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
(The current Saturn/Neptune transit brings uncertainty and indecision into this area, so harder work is necessary to clarify things, get organized and go forward in a confident, focused manner. Because of the long transit of Neptune through you 12th house, you will be asking deeper questions and reflecting upon the past or emotional reponses which mean you shoot yourself in the foot from time to time. You may spend more time musing upon life, the universe and everything. Some of you will explore the psychic or imaginal realms, some will discover deeper meaning to their life. With Saturn close to Neptune by degree, you will have the chance tot to flesh out those elusive feelings and vague hunches. To share with others and communicate across a wider field. Some may receive teaching which brings new understanding and insight or you may be the teacher/guide/author who shares experience with others. Discipline and organization will be needed in either case to bring the inner visions, the abstract ideas or the higher knowledge into the everyday world).
Uranus: Ariens born 10th-14th April or with 21-25 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Ariens born 4th-7th April or with 15-18 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.

From today until the 13th, Mercury and the Sun continue joining forces in the sign of Cancer. A self-oriented, intellectual power is in effect in your area of instinctual behaviour, home, and family-life, during this powerful link. Now may be a powerful time to talk to your family in your home.
