Diana's Monthly Aries Forecast for May 2016
Until the 21st finances, goods, property or anything which affects your material security or physical wellbeing 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 on a practical, physical, material level which may improve wellbeing – yours or another’s. So that includes what resources you can make use of inside or outside and that includes your inborn resources like talents and abilities, things you value about yourself.
Conversations tend to have a more practical slant. Revolving around material matters, or basic resources and you may be looking into how to 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.
Mercury is retrograde until the 22nd which can means hold-ups or having to think things through more carefully.
THE MATERIAL WORLD
Until the 24th Venus is in an area concerning money, property, possessions and other basic stuff. Overall, it means you can do okay in financial negotiations as your people skills will tend to improve. Buying/selling/renting/leasing tends to go in your favour and applying for funding or investments made under this transit can prove beneficial as long as you are sensible and don’t take a wild risk. You and a friend could be getting organized materially, or expanding into new territories and enjoying the trip. In general, Venus tends to ease things materially and can open the path between money or other goodies and you but, just make sure the traffic isn’t travelling more away from you than towards you – unless this is your choice.
From the 24th Venus is in a very sociable sector of your solar chart. She can help you to be articulate in your expression and tends to deliver environments or daily encounters which are more appealing or entertaining, even exotic. Some of you could be in exchanges with others who appreciate your self-expression or there may be more interesting daily encounters or more access to the arts. Media is favoured as is anything artistic. This transit could bring warm, supportive relations with siblings or soul brothers and sisters. You also can do better when buying/selling/promoting etc and if you want to settle a feud or negotiate for something, then you can be very persuasive.
Until the 28th Mars is in a more outgoing, expansive area of your solar chart.
Mars is retrograde all month which tends to mute the action and cause you to do some re-thinking. Those born either in the first week or with up to 8 degrees rising will be feeling the effects most. This is not a great time to initiate a competition or a fight you dearly need to win. If possible, wait until the retrograde is over.
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 28th 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 with another and 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 and possibly sizzly interchange with another.
Debts due or owed (moral or otherwise) may need a more decisive approach or maybe someone is being more assertive – even coercive – towards you. You’ll probably have to feel your way rather than ´think´ your way, and even though you are aware of others’ feelings , values or expectations, you want to stick up for yourself , and be true to your own values and inner nature. You are looking for a win/win solution but listening with your inner ear and seeing with your third eye.
You’ll tend not to want to put all your cards on the table with some people.
From the 21st the Sun is in a sociable, busy area and you could be meeting and greeting or connecting over the wires, corresponding, maybe sharing what you know or sourcing useful information, and probably running around more. It’s a time when you have more on your mind and maybe more to get your head around.
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-4th April or with 12-15 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 1st-5th April or with 12-16 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Uranus: Ariens born 9th-13th April or with 20-24 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
Pluto: Ariens born 4th-7th April or with 16-18 degrees rising will feel this energy the most this forecast period.
