As we start the Aries solar new year, let’s take a look at some of the major themes for Aries over the next 12 months. First off, the theme of faith. Jupiter, a planet with a lot of faith, is currently in Pisces, the sign before yours. There it encourages faith in the universe itself. By June, it moves into your own sign, where it encourages faith in yourself. In both cases, it is your ability and willingness to proceed with confidence that brings rewards over the next months.
A second theme is enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is one of Aries’ best qualities, and this is another approach that Jupiter will reward in the coming months. By June, it will be time to pursue your own interests with vigor. If you have a desire to study anything, Jupiter will also help with that.
By the same token, it may become more difficult to pursue an occupation that does not truly interest you. Saturn moves back into your work sector this month. He’ll stay there until July. If he didn’t already convince you between late 2007 and now that you need to pursuing work that you can see yourself sticking with, he’ll make another attempt before he leaves Saturn for good. Pluto in Capricorn is also encouraging you to transform your occupation into one that truly reflects you.
Uranus also moves into your sign this year–in late May. He’ll be giving a preview for about 2 1/2 months of what will eventually be a 7 year stay in your sign. You can’t get much more of an enthusiastic set of influences than Jupiter and Uranus in Aries. With the sun in your sign during the first 3 weeks of April, you’re getting sort of a sneak peek at the the energy that will be important this year.
Indeed, it’s already starting to show itself. Issues like gun rights are becoming more prominent and that’s exactly the kind of thing that Uranus in Aries advocates for (your sign rules guns; Uranus rules individual rights). Other related issues, like hunter’s rights, may also come into play.
You yourself may not be a gun enthusiast or a hunter per se. But the energy of the thrill of the chase (whatever it is that you like to chase, including people of your favorite sex) is all over your chart–not just this month, but for a long time to come.
