Aries (March 21st to April 19th)
If I had to be all Zen with the Zodiac, I’d say that Aries represents the moment that one experiences the heat of the moment. You don’t just seize the day; you take it by the collar and drag it along. And therein lies a problem you might come upon often. You needed a “flashlight” of a plan last week, so you can get around the dark that’s finally about to let up. Mercury’s ending his retrograde on Sunday, but Jupiter retro-grades on Thursday and Venus lands into Capricorn, where she’s going to spend the next 4 months. You could spell this out like this: your flashlight of a plan gets brighter, but your horizon could seem a flatter and more plain. However, your appe-tite is diversifying and your actual need for more increasing. You need the heat of the moment to blaze a little longer before you run off half-cocked.
