The Week Ahead for Aries

19th Mar 2018 - 25th Mar 2018Hold it! 

It’s another of those weeks when it’s a case of one step forward and two back. On the forward front, on the 20th, the Sun enters your sign reenergizing you and brightening your sights, yet two days later Mercury swings into retrograde, slowing down the pace and putting a potential spanner in the works. Add to this a strong Mars influence and you will have to be very careful not to make a move you’re going to regret in the future.

Often my advice to you is: do nothing in haste and out of anger or frustration and under stars like this you have to tread very carefully indeed. This is not the moment to throw the baby out with the bathwater.

March 2018

The Month Ahead for Aries

 You may like to be the one who’s in charge but not only is the universe in the driver’s seat this March but also you’re not quite your usual feisty self. Until the 17th take as much rest as you can, and if you don’t know what to do, do nothing! On the 17th, Mars arrives at the top of your solar chart and will be influencing career matters and your personal ambitions until late April: by the 29th you should know whether past efforts have paid off or whether you must go back to the drawing board. Indeed, this latter part of March is all about realities and reckonings: those things that are worthy will triumph and those things that are not… Well, you’re better off without them

The Year Ahead for Aries (2018)


Life and astrology are akin to a game of snakes and ladders: you go up some wonderful ladders and down some dreary snakes, but history never exactly repeats itself. Saturn’s new position in the area of career and life goals could represent both a ladder and a serpent, as you will surely discover over the next two plus years.

It is time to get serious about where you’re headed in life and build a solid a secure future for yourself. Late March, late June and late September are make or break points. The eclipses of the year (31 January, 15 February, 27 July, 11 August) fall on the axis of creativity and collaboration: some Arians will form new business alliances and entrepreneurial projects while others could be adding to their family.

2018 is not a year to cut corners or to leave anything to chance. It’s a head-down-reality-first kind of year.

Love and relationships

With Saturn in pride of place you’ll want to be sure you have a serious commitment from a partner. Gone are the days of “let’s just see how it goes…”. To this end you’ll be more discerning in your choice of new partners and concerned should a long-term partner not be prepared to name the day.

However, be careful of jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire, especially in August. If you are ready to exit a marriage, the financial cost could be high, so do your homework before issuing papers! Venus will supercharge the area of relating in August and November and together with March these are premium periods for meeting someone new or celebrating a wedding.

There is also an aura of long lost loves surrounding affairs of the heart: a rematch for some; closure and completion for others.

Work, life goals and finance

Forget about being the sprinter of the zodiac: you’re training for the marathon now. There are no quick fixes and no free lunches. Some Arians will see their stock rise, both in terms of their career status and income while others will experience struggle and rejection.

Keep on keeping on, Aries: the name of the game is survival of the fittest, so do what you have to do – take a lesser position, cut your costs and hone your talents - your day will come. May is a vital month for finances – an unexpected windfall for some, a loss of income for others.

Hence the advice to keep your overheads low. Fortunately, Jupiter will be in a key money area until early November, so 2018 is a great year to find backing for entrepreneurial ventures and going into partnership is highly recommended.

Celestial Tip

Learn to read people better. Indifference to you, your talents and your charms may mask a keen interest while promises could prove empty. If you want to be treated as a serious contender you have to act serious.

Show your commitment; bounce back from criticism with renewed determination. Never give up. You’re going to get there with that attitude, whether your goal is a true love match, a great career move or some other major ambition.

2018 may prove a testing year but without challenges you’d never reach the heights of which you are so capable.
