Aries is the first sign of the zodiac. (Pisces being the last)… This is the spring equinox period. Aries represent the new in many respects. It marks the beginning of growth, optimism and a move forward with enthusiasm.. a signifier of Spring, no less and indeed a characteristic of the archetypical Aries. However over confidence can be a problem.
Jupiter is squaring Saturn currently.. a desire for progress in chaotic international issues is strong , but constant blocks and hiccups and regressive developments are rife, (not least in how the refugee crisis is being handled and the middle eastern wars and of course in the need to fundamentally address climate change issues) Basic infrastructure and fundamental reorganisation and a moral reordering is needed collectively in all aspects of our society , but quick fixes wont cut it… Frustrations and regressions abound.
Neptune continuing in Pisces (in his own sign, so super powerful both negatively and positively) also suggests a collective confusion, and a hunger for more humanity and spiritual and egalitarian values and a desire for revolution in the status quo. A surge in left wing politics is a result, personified in Bernie Sanders and Jeremy Corbyn, but religious extremism can also be an ironic spin off of this, such as so called Isis/Daesh, as a totally ruthless rebellion against all Western values and indeed against civilisation.
Such extremism begets other angry extremism and rebellion (often racial and/or anti establishment, for good or ill. Donald Trump is a manifestation. (He is a Gemini with Leo ascendant with Mars and Pluto in Leo, both conjunct his ascendant and Moon in Sagittarius).
Meltdowns are in the ether. The world looks on in amazement.
Now Pluto (meltdown/crisis/nemesis, when misused) is past the midpoint of Capricorn (a fracturing of much of the western led globalised establishment that has been built up in the last 8 years or so) there is a sense in the collective global unconscious, to quote W. B. Yeats’ The Second Coming, that:
“Things fall apart, the centre cannot hold, mere anarchy is loosed upon the world. The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity”
From 2025 when Pluto (power) moves into Aquarius, it will be the world of technology and artificial intelligence that will be the focus of power and it will bring its own critical problems, if power in this area is misused and if it is motivated by profit/control.
Between the 5th-10th of this month there is more chaos and the unpredictable unleashed. Days of positivity/hope are 12th, 14th/15th and 17th and 18th….
Mercury in Taurus moves retrograde on the 28th and stays that way till the 22nd May.. Prepare for delays, and blocks and confusions, not least re the economy. Greece and Turkey may be facing greater difficulties.
Also Mars in Sagittarius moves retrograde on the 17th and stays so till June 29th.That is a very significant symbol for general geopolitical global stasis, paralysis, emasculation and lack of direction… not to mention a build up of dangerous, internalised seething anger in the much of the global populace.
This is your birthday period and before the 5th, if born after April 10th, the power of communication is strong and effective provided you maintain objectivity.

Saturn is also on your side, suggesting successful travel for duty/work and focused constructive academic work, if born April 4th-7th. For this group this is a very grown up, step up to the plate time, with positive, if deferred outcome. Uranus is still creating some chaos and restlessness for those born April 8th-12th.. Adrenalin flows as is urge for change and adventure/rebellion, the new /the liberating. But have a care about too much impetuosity and risk. There is another year to go of this. Let it take you on a journey, but easy does sit.
Pluto too is now on the case of those born round April 7th .A 2-year period of transformation lies ahead in which change is inevitable within and without. Power struggles are likely unless you are in control of your reactions and are squeaky-clean, and then personal true inner empowerment can finally be yours.
Mars your ruler moves retrograde from the 17th, after which many of you may be aware of frustration of action and hiccups re travel/long distance matters. This period lasts till the end of June so try and finalise important issues before the 17th
If born round the 11th, the new Moon on the 7th can bring a happy new beginning.
This is a month for your sign, of some retreat and contemplation on the past and where karma can play a role. After the 5th if born up to May 15th there is a sense then that communications are important, if not urgent and you are quick to respond. After the 28th there is a definite hiccup and sense of delay in certain personal issues and communications cannot get through. These delays have a purpose, and are often opportunities to rethink strategy and this period of retrograde motion by Mercury lasts till May 22nd, so be prepared. From the 17th, Mars change of direction suggests complications and freeze of energy re complex financial and very intimate issues. This lasts till late June, so be prepared.

The full Moon on the 22nd will affect those born April 21st-23rd.. For this group, the power of your or others subconscious is strong and eruption from that source can be quite surprising, but necessarily expressed. Often there are ending in the air as we reap what we sow and time to close certain doors.. a natural cycle .
A time for social life and collective projects that get energy and can flourish and social life and friendships/romance can flower too… notably after the 5th.
Mars however in your opposite sign of Sagittarius is challenging those born May 27th-30th and this group will feel that war drums are audible from some around you. You too may be over quick in reaction mode and impatience and irritation are in the air. Try and be calm.. The atmosphere is quite eruptive.

This period lasts till late June so be mindful.
Jupiter is tempting those born June 3rd –7th to be a little over expansive, or ever confident or over indulgent in certain areas of life, not least on the domestic/family/property front. Enjoy, but a little caution and discrimination can be advised.
Saturn is in his every 30-year challenging mode to those born June 5th- 8th and despite the Jupiter influence being in the ether, this is a time of some blocks from others, or from circumstances that need serious attention and reappraisal… It would be wise to take stick and rethink certain goals, or at the least be patient and accept some modifications to plans, that ultimately may be in you best interests.. The reality checks round others and events now are educational and may help lift the veil from your eyes. Look after the body too; it may be struggling a bit.
Uranus is now bringing some feeling of the new and exciting to those born June 9th-13th.. New projects/friends are inspiring and you want some feeling of the new and innovative and you can be very intuitive now and think outside the box successfully. This is around you on and off for around a year, so enjoy..
Have some care if born June 1st-3rd, as Neptune is now and for the coming 18 months or so, squaring your suns, and this means a tendency to be oversensitive and over idealistic and indeed potentially vulnerable to rose coloured spectacles, deceiving oneself or being vulnerable to deception from others. Check everything out and do not take things or people too much at face value. Also do not become a martyr to life or others.. Things are shrouded a bit in fog so make no life changing decisions as things are a little possibly distorted in you mind and vision.
Career looms large this month, possibly in not so easy a way … although from the 5th your charms and creative abilities can stand you in good stead, just be careful about being disingenuous. And before the 5th all born after July 12th, mat need excellent communication skills to make progress.
Jupiter is supportive and protective if born July 4th-8th..You are wise now and travel is favoured and emotional intelligence is yours and your ability to communicate with sensitivity and generosity of spirit is indicated.

Uranus is starting now and affecting to some extent for the coming year those born July 10th-14th bringing change, unpredictable events and a restlessness that can lead to impulsiveness that may be less than wise or constructive. Family/domestic disruption/change is possible. See this a journey where the old has to be shaken up, bit let the change happen that is necessary without forcing it drastically.
Pluto is a big player now for those born around July 8th-10th. He is opposing your suns and this brings potential for real coercive manoeuvres and power struggles around and with and from others for some time to come. This is a journey that won’t be complete till the end of next year. Draw boundaries round this and walk away, and don’t get drawn into dark confrontations with others who have baggage and agendas. Protect yourself and keep squeaky clean and you will strengthen yourself, but endings of chapters with others are in the air.. Fate may flag up an ending that is quite extreme of some sort in a certain relationship. It’s time may have run its course or a complete reinvention and revolution is needed in that area. At the end of this chapter you will be amazed art how much you have become a phoenix rising from the ashes of the old in a regenerated empowered state.

This is a period for buoyancy, travel, expansion and enjoyment, not to mention some luck or at least protection.

However Saturn is counterbalancing this energy for those born September 7th-10th. This group also need to be aware that there are certain restraints currently at work which you cannot ignore or walk away from without dealing with them honestly first. Obligation may clash with a desire for freedom and the obligation needs priority with courage..
Neptune warns those born September 2nd to 5th, to be wary of others who may not be all they seem or claim and you need to be wary of rose coloured spectacles but inspiriting via the arts can be considerable.. Music /film and the sea and nature and retreats are draws.

Be patient and use this period wisely for reconsideration and patient waiting. It lasts till late June.
Jupiter is affecting by square energy, those born December 4th- 8th, tempting to an over doing and or over expectation with a little lack of moderation, but so too Saturn will be directly affecting by conjunction those born December 6th-9th, creating a sense of some negativity and frustration and low confidence and also some tiredness. A delay or block demands reality checks and hard work in order to put a better infrastructure into the life.

Uranus by contrast is inspiring the lives and energies for aprox for a year or so, of those born December 10th –14th..

Uranus is creating some uncomfortable unpredictability in his current relationship to the suns of those born 9th-13th. This influence lasts on and off for around 12 months and suggests a need for change and a restlessness within that can lead to impulse of an unwise sort and family/domestic issue a source if some disruption and unpredictability. It’s not too settled.. This is an uncharted journey that needs patience and to go with the flow rather than forceful leaping into the new for the sake of it.
Neptune brings a new sense of gentleness compassion love of nature and need for meditative peace and kindness of heart if born January1st and 2nd. This remains strong for the coming year and invites the arts and artistic skills into your life in a positive way and the sea is soothing.
Pluto is creating a rare influence in the life of those born around January 8th currently.. Others are pitting their wits against you possible because they feel challenged or threatened by your power and you need to be careful about power struggles with those who can be ruthless. Draw boundaries and do not get tainted, but positively you will realise during this coming few years, just how much the power of this transit brings you to a sense of understanding of the wise use of power, and how there are inevitable endings in life, literally and metaphorically followed by phoenixes rising, and that some dark confrontations with others are great learning curves.. Through the dark into the light. Keep your conscience clean and this will be a strengthening period.
A month for increased information and knowledge, which can be shared with and gained through others. Notably before the 5th if born after February 9th.. For all of you, after the 5th charm and affections linked to communications makes for a happy and rewarding mix. Communication with family needs caution and clarity after the 5th for all born up to February 9th. Misunderstandings are very possible or plain lack of successful communications. After the 28th this may increase as a possibility.
For those born January 27th-230th Mars is bringing a power of intelligent constructive action when dealing with friends /social life or in a leadership role.

Mars however from Sagittarius are bit jarring on the energies of those born March 3rd-7th. Those in authority /or work colleagues can be a source of irritation or slightly confrontational and this can work both ways. Impatience and impulse can cause you some problems, so stop and think before speech or action, After the 17th when Mars moves retrograde, there may well be a sense of frustrating blocks that cause particular seething frustration, bur see this event as a period of constructive reassessment of goals and strategy.
Jupiter is currently in you opposite sign of Virgo and is now directly opposing the suns of those born March 3rd-7th.. For this group over confidence needs watched and over doing or expectation too much of people or situations.. Have some care, caution, and realism.. Having said that the good times can roll and relationships and travel can be a source of expansion but beware over enthusiasm or over generosity and general over everything, but see next paragraph
Saturn however is a stern disciplinarian for those born March 4th-8th, so that will act as a safety valve to many of the above group, bringing a sense of restriction /delay , some karmic lessons and forcing a need for reassessment of ideas /projects and maybe of others. Look after your health too, as energy may be drained. This is a reality check, and though frustrating maybe just what is needed.
Neptune your ruler now for the next year aprox will be bring the extreme Pisces characteristics out in those born February 28th-Match 3rd. This once ever 165 year visitation brings positively inspiration, creativity extra spiritual awareness, compassion, idealism and exquisite sensitivity and even extra psychic capacity., but negatively, can being over idealisation illusion or delusion , tiredness and negative escapism and a sense of divine discontent .. Use the positive qualities to inspire the world., but just keep grounded.
Pluto meanwhile will spend the coming few years bringing intelligent empowerment and some sense of regeneration for those born round March 8th. Leadership roles are in the air as is the regenerative power of others for your good and vice versa, is a great potential. Utilise with humility and good intention. With wisdom it can work so well for you.
