Aries Monthly Horoscope May 2017

Aries (Born March 21 to 31)
AND Aries Ascendant from 0 to 10 degrees Aries:

May 2017 Aries Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends

Overview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until May 20th:

The Sun continues to transit your solar second house. This is the most "financial" period of the year for you. You might have a more materialistic view of life for the time being, or you have an increased interest in your own possessions, during this cycle. You are more attracted to objects and possessions that give you a sense of comfort, status, or luxury now. You probably should be on the lookout for a tendency to create your own financial stress due to extravagant spending habits. At this point in the year, you are unlikely to take many risks, however, and you can be quite resistant to change. This is a time when "comfort zones" are more important to you than usual--you value the familiar.

From May 20th forward:

The Sun highlights your second house now, and your focus is on material affairs and comfort issues. Security is a driving force for you at the moment, and you might find that you are especially interested in accumulating possessions. What you have and what you don't have come into focus--what makes you feel comfortable, your sense of security, and what you value. This is the time of year when personal finances and possessions receive maximum attention. Pour your energy into your work and your finances, and you might just be able to take your ideas to the bank. Extravagance with your pocketbook is something you may want to look out for, however. If you find yourself itching to make unnecessary purchases, know that at the root of this urge is the desire to pamper and comfort yourself. Nothing wrong with it, but there are inexpensive (and even free) ways to make yourself feel good. This is not the most eventful time of year for you. You are more inclined to dig in your heels and hang on to what makes you feel most secure than to take big risks.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

All month: 

You could find it hard to deny yourself anything during this cycle! This is a time when you naturally let loose your softer, receptive side. Romantic matters, as well as pleasure-seeking activities, come to the fore now. You are more likely to pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms, aiming to improve and enhance your attractiveness. Others find you especially agreeable and cooperative. You are more gracious, well-behaved (superficial if you are not careful!), and likeable now. Take advantage!

Mercury this Month: Communications, Learning, Connections, Transportation

Mercury is retrograde from April 9th to May 3rd

Occurring in your solar first house this time, extra care should be exercised when it comes to your body language. Others may misinterpret your body language, and you should be aware of a tendency to give off mixed signals. People in your life may complain that you seem emotionally distant. You may appear uncommunicative and hard to reach, or what you say comes out wrong. This is a time to review the manner in which you come across to others--not so much whether it truly reflects your nature, but more in terms of whether it is working for or against you. Don't worry too much if others aren't quite "getting" you for the time being. Things will change once Mercury turns direct, so you might decide to try to keep status quo for the time being. You might spend more time than usual when it comes to making decisions now, and this is natural. Rushed decisions may be regretted when you change your mind later on.

All Mercury retrograde cycles particularly affect you in terms of communications in general and job or health-related communications because Mercury rules these areas of your life. There can be delays or rethinking with these matters.

Until May 16th: 

Mercury continues to transit your solar first house. During this cycle, you are more communicative than usual. However, this doesn't necessarily mean that conversations are at their best right now, simply because you are more interested in expressing yourself than listening! You are especially alert and a little cerebral now. You have a receptive audience for your ideas.

From May 16th forward: 

With Mercury in your solar second house, this is a strong period for analyzing your cash flow, income, and earning power. You are more practical and rational in your approach to finances during this period. With your conscious mind focused on money and possessions, as well as personal values, this can be a strong period for gathering new money-making ideas. Alternatively, it could be a time when you tend to fret over your finances. Conversations tend to be practical rather than frivolous now. Financial gain may come through communications.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

All month

Mars continues to energize your solar second house. You tend to put more effort into making money or making your life more comfortable and secure during this cycle. Your strong desire to be financially independent could lead to positive things, such as paying off debts or increased enterprise. The opposite side of the coin is asserting your independence by making impulsive purchases or taking risks with your money. You are more protective of the way you earn or spend money, as well as with the values you live your life by, and if others question you about these things, there could be arguments.

Overview Horoscope:

Where you felt constricted in April, you have a strong sense of liberation and forward movement in May, dear Aries. You are in particularly good shape with studies, communications, and ideas this month. Venus has now returned to your sign in direct motion. Even though you can be journeying along already-traveled ground until the middle of the month, you nevertheless feel that you are getting a second chance to get things right, and this is comforting.

People want to be around you - they like and seek out your company. From the 3rd, Mercury turns direct in your sign, reinforcing a sense that key areas of your life are no longer stuck or, at the very least, turning the corner.

Furthermore, your ruler, Mars, is working in harmony with your sign all of May, reinvigorating motivation to pursue personal interests and studies and to enjoy more movement and interaction with your neighborhood. It's an excellent time to make connections - with others and mental connections. This improves even further from the 21st when the Sun enters the picture. Until the 15th, Mercury and Mars are in mutual reception, supporting one another. Your communications, teachings, ideas, and writing go over exceptionally well, even if you can be a little hasty with them at times. Even better, you're satisfied with them.

Saturn and Uranus form an alliance once again, and projects begun towards the end of 2016 can enjoy a revival. Or, you work wholeheartedly on plans that bring both security and progress to your life. Following all the rules to the letter is not typically your cup of tea, but you also see the value of more structure and definition in your life. In fact, at this time, you’ll make the most progress by honoring some tried and true traditions, even if this seems counterintuitive. In May, getting ahead requires special attention to rules and order.

When planets move through Aries this year, they oppose Jupiter, and this is always a signal that you have to make accommodations for others even when you’re attending to personal plans. This month it’s related to love, communication, and mental space - work with others, and you'll advance more satisfyingly. 

Another emphasis in your solar chart this month involves your second house of resources. Even though you’re returning to some new starts or beginnings, this is also a great time to develop projects and focus on building and development. Life is supporting your talents, finding good use for them. You are working smartly now, finding ways to do what you need to do without impinging too much on your personal time. 

Very little is holding you back right now, so take advantage. It’s a great month for initiating, building, developing, and learning. Gathering information can be a big focus. Your powers of attraction are super as Venus spends the entire month in your sign. 

Key dates are the 9-10 when you can make exciting discoveries and come to wonderful epiphanies related to money, business, reputation, and intimate relationships. It’s a superb time to release a burden or to handle a problem that's been hanging over your head for way too long. The 11-12 is tricky as disillusionment is possible, but out of disappointment comes a new and exciting project or vision. The 16-17 is similarly tricky, but not as immediately advantageous - adjustments need to be made to your expectations, past problems may resurface in relationships, and legal or business obstacles may be part of the picture for some of you. The 24-25 can be a time for taking on an all-new attitude or plan to get your daily life in order. You shine on the 30-31 in oh so many ways, not the least of which relates to your writing, studies, or communications.

You are more inclined to dig in your heels and hang on to what makes you feel most secure than to take big risks.

Venus this Month: Love, Romance, Social Life, Comfort

Until May 14th: 

Venus continues to transit through your solar twelfth house now. The twelfth house is a sector of endings, privacy, and mental health, and with Venus here, it's possible that you are reviewing your feelings for someone, or enjoying a more private love life for the time being. You may not be open with your affections for whatever reason now, and this shouldn't be a problem—it may be difficult to articulate, verbalize, or intellectualize your feelings for the time being. Doing some soul-searching as well as an enhanced ability to perceive other dimensions in love can lead you to a deeper understanding of your own love needs and possibly of a love relationship. Love might involve some form of sacrifice or simply a lot of giving and lending of support as opposed to receiving during this cycle.

From May 14th: 

You could find it hard to deny yourself anything during this cycle! This is a time when you naturally let loose your softer, receptive side. Romantic matters, as well as pleasure-seeking activities, come to the fore now. You are more likely to pay closer attention to your physical appearance and mannerisms, aiming to improve and enhance your attractiveness. Others find you especially agreeable and cooperative. You are more gracious, well-behaved (superficial if you are not careful!), and likeable now. Take advantage!

Others may misinterpret your body language, and you should be aware of a tendency to give off mixed signals. People in your life may complain that you seem emotionally distant.

Mars this Month: Energy, Drive, Courage

From the 6th forward:

Mars animates and energizes your solar third house now. You are likely to have many ideas and plans going during this transit, and you might be inclined to scatter your energies as a result. Channelled well, however, this is a good time to sell your ideas to others, or to present your case in some manner. You may be especially busy running errands and communicating with others now. More articulate than usual, you may also have a more assertive, self-centered, or provocative communication style at this time. As such, discussions might more readily become heated or they might escalate into arguments. If this is the case, it's likely because you are taking things very personally right now, or because you are over-identifying with your beliefs and ideas. A tendency to be impatient or impulsive while driving or while performing manual tasks, generally with the hands, may lead to accidents, so it's wise to be careful on the road or while operating machinery or even using scissors! This is an excellent time for working on intellectual tasks with more vigor and passion.

May 2017 Aries Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends

Aries the RamOverview.

The Sun this Month: Central Focus, Consciousness

Until May 10th:

The Sun continues to move through your solar first house. You experience a renewal of energy and vitality now, and it's a strong time for increased personal confidence. The emphasis is on self-expression, what kind of impression you make on others, and beginning new personal projects. You are a little more self-centered than usual, and this is quite natural and healthy as long as you don't take it too far. You are more decisive and forward-looking now, and you put more faith in your own abilities. Physically, you are likely feeling strong. This is an excellent cycle for making personal changes in your manner or appearance, and for any self-improvement endeavors. Personal projects that you begin now are likely to blossom nine months down the road.
