ZODIAC LOUNGE: ARIES THIS WEEK 4/1-4/7

Aries (March 21st to April 19th)

On Sunday, a planetary aspect that looks fairly commonplace on the surface happens: Venus gets tied at the hip with Mars in Aries.  Then I realized that Venus & Mars team up while the Sun is in your sign. So here’s the thing: this seems to only happen every 32 years and not always as exact as it will be on the 7th.  Venus and Mars together symbolize the 2 ways we experience desire: the pleasure of having what we want (Venus) and the struggle to get it (Mars). Having the two aligned while in your sign means this is a rare and powerful time to embrace your desires.  With the big picture in mind, it’s an excellent time to go the extra mile in your career or personal aims. This weekend is also an excellent time for romance or initiating one.
