Fly free but fly safe
Darling Aries, you are arguably the most impulsive sign of the zodiac. You love leaping into the unknown, hoofs happily trit-trotting toward the next experience. You are impetuous at the best of times but this week you may feel compelled to stretch, transform and evolve at any cost. Jupiter, the planet of expansion, is opposite Uranus the spontaneous in your sign, so tread carefully. It’s fantastic that you are bold enough to listen to your warrior heart. You’re the original wildling, you’re beautifully brazen and dance to the tune of your own drum. You have a call to the wild and refuse to be contained, or Goddess forbid, controlled. But, remember, there’s a big difference between being impulsive versus being reckless.
Before you ditch a lover, leave a long-term relationship or jump in all horns blazing with a soul connection, it might be wise to take your time. What’s the rush? Dial it back a bit and give it a month or two before you rent the moving van and box up the cats. Reflect on the soul lesson and ground your decisions. On top of that, Venus is opposing Neptune, which could have you thinking in extremes. An ex-love interest becomes a villain and new love you place so high on a pedestal you can barely see their feet! We are all guilty of writing the characters in this spiritual movie called life. If you want things to work out, take a chill pill, reflect on your past relationship patterns and see the bigger picture.
People are like stained-glass windows.
They sparkle and shine when the sun is out,
but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed
only if there is a light from within.
~ Elizabeth Kübler-Ross ~

Light my fire
You regain control

You want to explore, travel, and throw yourself into the wild. Try to avoid eye-rolling and arguments with folk you feel are stuck. Yes, your desire to spread your wings can’t be held back, just plan it and do it with your usual style and power! No rushing off to Hawaii with a toothbrush and one running shoe.

Jupiter and Uranus give you a brilliant idea BUT don’t try to pull it off without plotting and planning or it could slip through your paws.

Serious Saturn is bringing a family issue to the surface. Are there any control patterns in your intimate relationships? Do you feel restricted or do you check up on a partner because you feel unsafe? Don’t get caught up in a circular argument but think about how you can fly free from repeating patterns.

If you take a short cut, it might lead you to have to work even harder to reach your goal. You have the brilliance to pull off radical change but use your analytic skills to plot your course.
Pluto has been messing with your sense of happiness recently, but he is about to lift the burden and go direct. PHEW! Suddenly you find your creativity and joy. A sensual reawakening gives you a thrilling few months. When Mercury goes direct on the 30th, you can build on your plans and give your happiness wings.
In a nutshell – Avoid tussling with family and focus on following your passionate spirit. There is no need to convince people that you are right, get on and show them! Pluto has been retrograde making you much more serious than usual as you’ve been pondering past soul mates. A brand new cycle awaits and it’s got joy written on it.
Look before you leap
There’s magic and mayhem for the first few days of this week. Your ruler, Mercury, is squaring up to Saturn. Are you confused about what a love interest or new friend is saying to you? On the one hand, you might feel a profound connection, and yet the boundaries keep shifting and it’s hard to pin things down. When Jupiter opposes Uranus for the third time on the 28th, you are very tempted to be wildly impetus and let go of security for the sweet call of freedom.

You seek spiritual enlightenment and want to know what your life purpose is. You’re kind of deep at the best of times but Pluto’s last couple of days retro have you dragging up past conversations and examining each minute detail. Some past conversations displease you. Yes, perhaps you feel you could have done things differently. Regret is about as useful as nail polish to a snake. As long as you have tried to make amends or accepted your part in it, it’s time to move on.

You are not in the mood to be distracted or let anyone stand in your way BUT this transit has the ability to make you reckless. Try to take 24 hours to think things through, especially around any life-changing decisions. Mercury is entering your career zone too on the 30th. Others are standing up and taking notice, you got this.

A Magical mystery tour
Your ruler is kicking off with Jupiter, the Planet of expansion, making you even more of a courageous voyager than usual! You go all Tin Tin and want to solve complicated problems and travel free. If you’ve been bored, you find the right conversations and solutions to do things differently. Having said that, this energy is so full on you could act without thinking. Your soul is screaming out for excitement and expansion. Broaden your horizons by enrolling in a course, get out and join inspiring groups. You might find yourself planning an awfully big adventure but don’t forget to explain things to your loved ones. You’re not just going on a physical or intellectual journey but also a spiritual one. Pluto, the lord of transformation, has been going retrograde in your mystical zone. You’ve probably taken a rocket ship back down memory lane and thinking of the times you were off balance? Where there people or experiences you were addicted to? Were you naive in believing in a love interest or even a group with high ideals? In the coming cycle, you embrace your own wise woman who has been right beside you all along. What do you KNOW but are ignoring? What does your body say to you about trust? Use your soul Satnav, and you can’t go wrong. Mercury is also going into your adventure zone drawing free thinkers, rebels and unique souls your way.
In a nutshell – Thank goodness pesky Pluto is going direct and releasing you from a past life connection that would not let go. Or perhaps you’ve been confused by another’s lack of boundaries? Grab the reins and gallop to your destiny
It’s all change this week as you forge ahead with a better understanding of your own power. Steady though Pisces, before you fearlessly swim toward the sharks, make sure that you are doing the right thing. You have a strong desire for independence and also to express your sensuality, power and intuition. All of this stuff is already your strengths, accept them, nurture them but don’t let the wild thoughts of this week make you too cavalier!
OOH ER! Jupiter and Uranus are bringing awakening but can make you foolhardy and unaware of the consequences for rash action. You got this, take it easy! When Venus opposes your ruler Neptune, you might find yourself idealising a lover or fantasising about someone new. Fair enough, and yes, you might have a soul attraction but keep one fin on the ocean floor. You view love with rose-tinted Raybans but might only have a small part of the selfie! Take your time so that you can see the full picture. Pluto has been messing with your social Mojo, perhaps you have felt isolated or on the outside looking in? When Pluto goes direct, you should regain your confidence, find a new tribe and enjoy getting out there. Mercury is shifting too, making you brooding, sexy and mysterious.
In a nutshell – Trust in your instincts and your charisma. You’ve been through some tough times, but the circle now turns. Mercury is making you magnetic and intense, but avoid making any impulsive cash decisions.
