The longer a slower moving planet like unpredictable Uranus remains in a certain sector of the sky, the more we feel it on Earth. With brainy Mercury, lovely Venus, assertive Mars and
expansive Jupiter joining the Aries party, we experience Uranus’ pull more strongly. We may summon the confidence to finally finish that degree or ask that delectable person out. For
example, Cancers born June 24-25, Librans born September 26-27 and Capricorns born December 25-26 will feel pressure to act decisively. Aries may be getting more physically fit,
Cancers delegating more at home, Librans uncharacteristically fulfilling desires first and Capricorns competing for career advancement.
All Aries, especially those born March 23-24, Leos born July 26- 27 and Sagittarians born November 25-26 welcome Jupiter/Uranus influences, eagerly initiating new projects, romances, courses, travels or moves. Uranus ruled Aquarians will be riding the energy wave, connecting to friends and expanding their network. Electronics may be wonky, faster upgrades flying off store shelves. People with natal planets at 3 degrees Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn will also feel catalytic events compelling them forward. Those feeling alone will risk reaching out to others, investigating online dating or joining sports groups.
Irrepressible Aries slogans like: Go for it! Just do it! Now or Never! Bring it on! Yes, We Can! coupled with ‘Lady Luck’ Jupiter and ‘Roll-the-Dice’ Uranus impatiently demand getting
the lead out. That ‘someday’ Bucket List on the back burner awaits something - 5 planets in fiery Aries, perhaps? - before finally boiling over. Maybe a jealous blow-up tips the scales
toward greener relationship pastures. Perhaps bulging waistlines force couch potatoes to get moving while sprained ankles relegate impatient Type As to the sidelines. Or escalating headaches make others admit how peeved at abusive bosses they are. Perhaps that dream, percolating at a pay-the-bills job compels budding entrepreneurs to brave the Dragon’s Den.
Will we get burned? Slightly singed, perhaps, but happy playing the lead role in our own dramas. Inattentive (Uranus) over-thetop (Jupiter) types among us – speedy, combustible, wired - invite fender benders, unnecessary arguments or temporary burnouts. Check those frayed electrical cords and baser impulses, keeping hair-of-the-dog remedies and fire
extinguishers close by.
During Aries' reign, loyal NHL fans lustily cheered sports heroes onward. Excitement abounded, uniting communities as the Royals said, “I do!” Decisive Canadian election results, shocking shake-ups in Japan and Osama bin Laden’s death amid retaliation threats rocked our world. We’ve all been touchier lately, wanting to strut our stuff. “You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to ME???” Yes, Uranus, Jupiter, Venus, Mars and Mercury in Aries definitely are. Maybe it’s finally time to gather that earthquake preparedness kit or sign that petition for affordable education. Time to take the big leap or that shaky first step toward a brighter future. Whatever your desire, get on with it, already! Mars or Bust!
