May 2020

In addition to the normal shifts in focus that you would expect at this time every year, the biggest impact on you personally will come from a shift for both Mars and the lunar nodes and a coming together of planets that are focused on the past. The latter is a continuation of what began building last month, with a combination of Venus' return to your communication sector and Mars and Saturn's return to your friendship sector greatly increasing the support for communication, friendship and relationship building. With Juno in retrograde motion in your relationship sector until 27th May, Venus turning retrograde in your communication sector on 13th May and Saturn in your friendship sector on 11th May, this will create a combined swing to the past. This will tie into Mars' departure from your friendship sector and return to a nostalgic, reflective but also intuitive and imaginative part of your chart on 13th May. This marks the start of the wind down of your current Mars cycle and preparation for your ruling planet's return to Aries later next month. As Mars will return at the end of June but not leave until January 2021, this will be a valuable chance to first recharge your batteries. This might take the wind out of your sails but with not only planets across the communication, friendship and relationship fronts turning retrograde but both planets in your career sector, this is part of a general call to slow down. Another significant event is a shifting of the lunar nodes on 5th May, something that will not only have an impact this month but right through to January 2022. Since November 2018, with the North Node in your home and the South Node in your career sector, this has policed a balance between your home and professional lives. As this ends this will see the South Node return to an adventurous part of your chart and the North Node to your communication sector, joining the growing planetary activity there.


Week beginning Monday 25th of May 2020

While you might find it hard to get moving on Monday it is less a lack of motivation and more a case of an overactive imagination inviting you to spend time navel gazing. This is anything but time wasting and instead a chance to follow Mars, your ruling planet as he is empowering your imagination, ideas and dreams. Not returning to Aries until the end of next month, this is a time when the dreams that will shape your future are being born and need to be nurtured. Mars is strongly supported on Monday and that is why spending time in your head rather than in the real world will be more appealing. However, we do live in the real world so you might need to fit this in where and how you can. In the meantime, the week not only gets off to a good start for talks, communication and for personal and professional networking, friendship and relationship building in general, but the conditions will continue to improve during the week.


Wednesday 27th of May 2020

Juno is still at a friendly aspect to the Sun, in his first full week in your communication sector, as she turns direct in your relationship sector today and that makes all the difference. As the tide turns on the relationship front and you turn to face the future, it is with the Sun shining on your relationships and especially when it comes to communication. Venus will remain in retrograde motion in your communication sector for another four weeks, continuing to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.

About Aries

Information about your birth sign


Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and this is exactly where you need to be in your life, up front and first!

You are ruled by Mars, the fiery red planet, named after the Roman God of war and fertility. You are a natural warrior and champion. You're not inclined to back away from a challenge, nor will you back down in an argument when you know you're right. You're often at your best when there is a competition to win, a cause to champion, or a friend to defend. To you, a friend in need, is truly a friend indeed! You'll go out of your way to help others or to promote a good cause.

The symbol for Aries is the Ram and the body part associated with Aries is the head. A ram will head-butt others out of its way and will lock horns with other rams when the need arises.

Being the first of the signs, you're considered to be the youngster of the zodiac. Like a baby, you're an innocent and you can at times be quite naieve or overly trusting. Like an infant, you can also be quite loud or vocal when your needs are not being met! If you're upset or angry, you usually don't mind who knows about it.

We all judge others by our own yardstick. Your way is to be honest, direct and straight to the point. Because you do not have a deceptive or dishonest bone in your entire body, you can be blind to those faults in others. With you, what you see is what you get. Most people find this energising and refreshing!

You were born in the spring when the leaves return to the trees and new life abounds all around. In tune with your birth energy, new growth and new things excite you. You will often be the first to see the new film, to read the new book, or to embrace a new experience or a new way of doing things. Your natural enthusiasm for the new can be a true inspiration for other people.

You get along best of all with the other fire signs, Leo and Sagittarius, also with the air signs, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, as they provide the oxygen that your fire needs to burn brightly.

The water signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, can sometimes dampen down your fiery nature, or worse, extinguish your flames altogether. Likewise, you may find it more difficult to shine brightly, or at all, when smothered by the earthiness of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.

There are 12 types of Aries, because your ruling planet, Mars, visits all 12 signs of the zodiac on its travels. The sign where Mars is placed in your individual horoscope is important, as this will add characteristics to your fiery Aries spirit.

An Aries Sun who is born with Mercury, Venus and Mars in the adjacent, placid and cautious, down to earth sign of Taurus, may not recognise himself from this description. If you don't know where Mars was transiting when you were born, one of our astrologers will be pleased to tell you more.
