Diana's Monthly Aries Forecast for August 2016
Until the 23rd 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 out to have a good time 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.
Mercury is focusing your mind upon the practical aspects of life. Thoughts could revolve around, repairs, maintenance, or health – yours or another’s. Thinking about the mechanics of how something might work best will definitely be a keynote. Also you could be learning useful new skills or blowing the dust off those you already have – either out of choice or necessity. Practical advice will be of service.
Mercury goes retrograde from the 30th.
Until the 6th 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.
From the 6th Venus is in a more practical mood, favourably highlighting teamwork regarding daily chores, learning skills (or maybe which button to push), running repairs or health matters – your own or another’s. Others will probably be in a co-operative, more supportive frame of mind assisting with your requirements. You are more likely to have reasonable interaction with health-providers, co-workers and anyone providing assistance and so if there has been an ongoing problem chances are you will find someone to help with recovery or repair and, even if the problem is not resolved, the interaction will tend to be pleasant.
From the 23rd you may be dealing with more chores or niggly details, or, this may also be the moment to get to grips with health issues (yours or another’s) or a better diet and exercise regime. You may also be putting more effort into maintenance, repairs, or using skills. So, dealing with the ‘to do’ list and getting things organized better seems advisable, but there will be smiles along the way.
From the 3rd 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.
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 10th-19th April or with 21-29 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 9-11 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 12th-14th April or with 23-25 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Ariens born 3rd-6th April or with 14-17 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
