April Sun Sign Profile: Aries (March 21-April 19)

 

Here’s a list of things I’d like you to visualize: the color red, the metal iron, a diamond, fire, Xena Warrior Princess, an untamed horse, a rebel leader, a lone wolf. That was fun, wasn’t it? So who is this bright, sparkly, wild, bold, steamin’ hot mess of a Sun Sign? ARIES! Now don’t get yourself all conflicted wondering why some Aries individuals you know are much more subdued…that’s probably just on the outside. Inside, they resemble my list. Just know that Aries is, by nature, wild at heart.

 

If you are an Aries, and I probably don’t need to tell you this, it’s mega-important to be true to yourself. This is important for everyone, to be sure, but for individualistic Rams, activities that diminish the SELF are somewhat toxic. This does not mean these fiery beings are incapable of warmth, fuzziness, and caring. It’s just not their raison d’etre. This is why archetypal Aries make better entrepreneurs than employees, rock stars than groupies, generals than soldiers, and sometimes…takers than givers.

 

Known for their enthusiastic, sexy, vibrant energy, a happy Aries can be a spark plug in just about any setting. When Aries gets cranky, look out. You’ll see all kinds of immature, self-serving, aggressive behavior. Thankfully, their anger, although formidable, is usually not long lasting.

 

Aries clicks with Fire Signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius, sharing the same high-energy. But the Fire/Fire combination can become an ego clash! Air Signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius work with Aries, as they tend to be spontaneous. Earth sign Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn could offer Aries some stability, but predictable Earth could bore or frustrate the Ram. Aries can find Water Signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces alluring, but could quickly feel their fire extinguished, if presented with a moody, clingy attitude.

 

Femastrology Horoscopes for April 2013

 

For all the Sun Signs: Let’s all say a collective Hallelujah that it’s Spring, Mercury is direct, and we can all start forging ahead this month! Pluto goes retrograde just after the Aries New Moon on April 10, heightening the tension with Uranus in Aries. Things are uncertain, exciting, scary, and but moving very quickly. The only way to work with this energy is to drop negativity and enthusiastically embrace change. The Scorpio Lunar Eclipse on 4/25 should be a wild one!

 

Aries (March 21-April 19) Happy Birthday Aries! This is a great month to take a chance at something new. This is the time to be sociable, apply for a job, take a class, make new friends, and influence people! Do not waste time doing the same old thing. Rams born early in April may feel a little queasy as the Uranus/Pluto square tightens. The only solution is patience and endurance. Pretend you’re a Taurus J

 

Taurus (April 20-May 20) Tune in, compose yourself, and take stock of what you see around you. Saturn in Scorpio is not letting you take any short cuts. But Pluto in Capricorn wants you to make positive and steady changes for the better. This month, rest a little and increase your energy reserve.

 

Gemini (May 21-June 20) Favorable influences abound now. This may make you feel somewhat bullet-proof, and it could be true. Those around you will be charmed and ready to assist you with your plans. Have some fun, but remember, it’s good to strike while the iron is hot, and right now, it is.

 

Cancer (June 21-July 21) There might be more work than play right now, but if you enjoy your work, that’s not so bad, right? Pay attention to the career zone. If you need changes there, put some energy in motion. You are likely to have encounters with influential people, so pay attention.

 

Leo (July 23-August 22) You’d probably be feeling like a million bucks if Saturn in Scorpio wasn’t slowing you down some. Your responsibilities might be hefty, but take some time to recreate and socialize this month anyway. Aries and Gemini planets give you an edge, so don’t be afraid to take some chances in business this April.

 

Virgo (August 23-September 22) You could have a stroke of luck in the career zone this month, but your personal arena might be a bit scrambled. Don’t let out-of-kilter emotions or unrealistic attitudes color your decision making at this time. And pay close attention to financial dealings with others.

 

Libra (September 23-October 22) The dating/relating vibrations are off the chart this month, so single Libras, take note! This is a great time to benefit in association with others in general though, which can enhance many things, both personal and professional. A word to the wise: be conservative with money this month. It will not magically appear in your bank account just because you are in a good mood.

 

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)  Put some energy into health and well being. And do something to bring greater harmony to your daily routine, at work and at home. Saturn in Scorpio may be making you a bit serious now, but this could push you into a very productive mode if you allow it to.

 

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) Explore that which your find pleasurable and creative. And make an effort to connect with people on a deeper level. For single Sagittarians, love is in the air, but not if you are hiding out, licking old wounds!

 

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) Find the balance between your personal world and the world outside. You may need to make a few adjustments in your schedule. This month may begin with a touch of frustration, but it will end on a high note if you pace yourself and press onward.

 

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) Don’t let external pressures stop you from exploring new pathways and enjoying yourself this month. You are receptive to unusual ideas and creativity now, but that doesn’t happen in a vacuum. You must expose yourself to people and situations that can inspire you, so go do that!

 

Pisces (February 19-March 20) There ‘s lots of energy flowing in the direction of the material world right now. This could help you jump start anything from a new financial strategy to an updated fitness routine. Or both! Get yourself into your body, stay grounded, and find practical outlets for your inspirational thoughts. You’ll be happy when the results start materializing.
