Diana's Monthly Aries Forecast for April 2016
Until the 20th is a powerful time for you with the Sun in your sign. A good time for taking stock and reviewing the dance of life over the past year and also thinking about the future. In general, the way should be clearer to improve things for yourself personally and definitely to be more ‘self‘ centred, doing whatever is most supportive of yourself physically, mentally and spiritually. Also to give more time and energy to aims and ambitions close to your heart and feel the empowerment that brings.
MEETING AND GREETING
Until the 6th Mercury is in your sign putting you more in the stream of information exchange and mixing with others. A time to put those people skills to work as you outline intentions or ideas more clearly and accurately to others. There may be more paperwork or other things to get your head around and mental processes may be accelerated. Communications equipment, vehicles, travel or transport might also be on your mind. At times there may be so much coming at you that you feel a bit scattered so engineer quiet spaces for yourself whenever you can.
From the 6th conversations tend to have a more practical slant. Revolving around material matters, or basic physical needs and you may be looking into how to improve things or get your ducks in a row. Thinking will revolve around essential needs and gathering information about whatever would be best for yourself or others financially/materially. Plans may focus upon certain desirable resources or practical ways of achieving this or that result. You may be wondering how you can best express yourself creatively through material objects. Also, buying/selling, renting/leasing could also be on your mind at this time. And stuff! What is of most value to you and even how can make more of your natural abilities.
FEED THE SOUL, HEAL THE BODY
Until the 6th you’ll tend to keep your feelings to yourself or be uncertain about where you stand in a relationship, or regarding finances or property. You could be mulling over the past and finding emotions getting in the way of the present. Others can be oblivious to what’s going on for you, and you should take a step back, touch base and, with Venus’s knack of finding the balance, you gently iron out any inner turbulence or physical imbalance. This transit means you are likely to feel supported by others within a closed circle or other special environment It is likely you can benefit materially through others related to these environments. A good idea would be to immerse yourself in nurturing pursuits which feed your soul whenever you can.
GOOD IN YOUR SKIN
From the 6th Venus is in your sign, supporting a more gregarious, sociable mood and could boost your love-life and other close relationships. Meeting the world with more ease and enthusiasm after the previous phase which was less certain and more introspective. Reaching out more to connect with others and some of you could be tying the knot with a loved one.
Professional relationships get a boost with more opportunities to mix and mingle successfully or connect with those important to you. With Venus here you will tend to come across as more welcoming and attractive – good news for business as well as your personal life. On the other hand, you could be feeling somewhat self-indulgent and inclined to treat yourself to activities, or purchases which boost morale or are a valuable asset. It’s not all easy-peasy with Venus, which also rules money and other material resources like possessions and property, and you’ll need to work to balance things, so just make sure that the flow of abundance is not flowing more from you than to you – unless that is your choice. Overall this is a good time to work the energy to your advantage and reap the potential benefits.
Mars is in a more outgoing, expansive area of your solar chart.
At key points over this transit you should in some way be reaching out for new horizons and fresh experiences. So this may be the right moment to launch a new scheme or enterprise or to go on a journey of discovery.
You will be physically active in learning through doing, but also grasping certain things you didn’t have a clue about before. Some of you may be getting out and about more and this is a good time to shake out the cobwebs. Travel, connecting with foreign lands, giving or taking a course would be a good idea. Your physical energy may be needed as you push the envelope of daily life and get right outside of the routine box by stretching yourself mentally or physically.
From the 20th finances, goods, property or anything which affects your material security or physical wellbeing now or in the future is likely to have your attention. So key themes are centred around ‘stuff’ – yours (or theirs), and perhaps protecting it, moving it, ditching it or acquiring more. Also seeing how to improve things in practical ways which may improve wellbeing – yours or another’s.
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 1st-5th April or with 12-16 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 3rd-6th April or with 14-17 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Ariens born 8th-12th April or with 19-23 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Ariens born 5th-7th April or with 17-18 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
