You’re birthing a new part of yourself and it is exciting and leads exactly to what you want. At the same time, it is difficult, a hard and painful birth which requires exactly two things to help you get through it. Patience and self-care.
Starting now, you must commit to taking extra care of yourself: massages, healings, cleanses, more sleep. After a time of great upheaval, and wrung out as you are, you see the sun ahead, you feel calm, and you sense how much more fun you’re going to have! Wow, Aries!
Chiron retrograde in your sign helps as well: that pain deep inside you subsides.
And with more honest and intimate sharing from the heart, a conflict ends. It has been quite a battle. At times it’s as if you’ve been treading water, the waves rough against your thighs. Some friends, even professional colleagues, have severely disappointed, but you’re growing closer to the ones who truly matter.
Pleasure rises, pressure falls. You receive deeper acknowledgement from your peers. If you’ve been going too long unrecognized, now the tide turns in your favor.
With so much gained wisdom – after so much frustration – and learned patience, you steadily place the cups of your success, arranged like trophies, back on the winning block.
And with this comes a rebirth of your desire. It has been a while.
A dry desert is what it felt like these past few months as you pushed yourself so relentlessly forward.
Begin now, dear Aries, to let your wishes and desires ignite again – into a slow burning flame.
Then it’s a slow, take-it-easy kind of month, to enjoy the fruits of your labors. This includes literal fruit as well, as in nature. As in trees, flowers, fruits and vegetables. I see you spending some of the happiest days of your life outside this month. Go outside and recapture your love of the earth. If you don’t have a garden, go outside, anywhere you can, just to experience the beauty of nature.
And if anyone suggests cutting into that nature, even pruning, you must say no.
In a nutshell, your environment has become musty, and the windows now open. You’re leaving the stale overused air you’ve been breathing and regurgitating for fresh breezes.
For you have, in your fifth house of pleasure and conception:
Your powerful ruler sexy Mars
Planet of love and beauty Venus
A new silvery Leo Moon on Wednesday, July 31
Brilliant thought-planet Mercury as of Sunday, August 11
Take your pick. One of these energies from your fifth house will be going hog-wild:
Conceiving and brainstorming new projects
Falling in love
Your children and having Children
Your lusty desires and joyful sexual self
Parties and theater
Fun and playing and dressing up
Taking a leap of faith
FOR BEST RESULTS IN WORK: Push your Virgo side (you’ve got it): Devoted, detailed, helpful, conscientious. Rather than looking at the big picture – the forest – and ignoring the branches on the trees, examine the branches! Each and every leaf is worth its weight in gold, and I’m not kidding. You get richer this month by zooming in on the nitpicky.
And about people, remember your wise sister Aries writer Maya Angelou: When people show you who they are, believe them.
Don’t let anything like Chiron retrograde (wounded self) in your first body house chip away at your confidence. You’re in a more solid position than you think.
A past matter concerning home and property comes up again. It would behoove you to look at this for it would work to your advantage now. Ride each new wave as it comes in. Success is yours!
There is nothing more exciting than an inspired Aries – we want to see you inspired.
With two major planets finally going direct – Mercury on Wednesday, July 31 (Harry Potter’s – and his creator’s – birthday!), and Jupiter on Sunday, August 11, you’re going to feel a massive freedom. Home and property matters clear up and become easier after July 31, and you’re ready to stretch your wings after August 11. Travel and exploration – including self-exploration – becomes key. If you don’t travel literally, you will in your mind.
So, give yourself permission to slow down, relax…even party. You don’t need to be all things to everyone. No one will get lost without you!
Go ahead and feed your soul a bit more, please. Because you do need to be all things for yourself.
I will explain.
Wise old Saturn, your toughest lesson, is in Capricorn, your tenth career house. No use blaming others here. Saturn wants you to take the responsibility yourself. Saturn always has the last word, don’t even try. No short cuts. Saturn, Father TIME, hates short cuts!! Give it TIME. Do it properly. Do it right.
Just remember to curb the spending, and you’ll do great. Those who are still having conversations with da money people and such, you may want to ask yourself: Why is it I really don’t want to grow up yet? It most often has to do with a father figure in your life.
Maturity is hard to obtain, mostly because it can’t be taught. You have to learn it yourself. As the great philosopher Kierkegaard says, “Life is a hard teacher. She gives the test first, the lesson after.” You’ve had enough changes and challenges recently to pass your test with a flying A+.
Insecurity stops plaguing your subconscious and fears of being old and alone. Also an exhaustive time around the house and home ceases, and the end of August launches you into a whole new energy level.
The most positive part of this is that you name to yourself the people with whom you feel most comfortable. Those you can really relax with and be yourself with. Your true self. (Putting on a show, or trying to keep up with the Whomevers, is so deeply exhausting, isn’t it?) That’s true freedom. And it’s priceless. Can’t be bought.
Okay, what else?
Venus and Mars in your fifth romantic house together after July 26.
OMG!! You’ve got lovers coming out of the bushes.
And a new lover as July ends.
Opening up to a beautiful and joyous August! (I even see you being serenaded. Also spoken publicly about.) Oh, Aries, you are going to have so much fun…
YOUR LUCKY DAYS Aries Sun and Aries Jupiter, your times of destiny are:
(Eastern) All of Tuesday, July 23; Wednesday, July 24 until 5:42pm; Sunday, August 18 after 12:33pm; all of Monday, August 19; all of Tuesday, August 20; and until 12:37am on Wednesday, August 21.
I look forward to speaking with you, Aries!
Take care. With love, Madalyn
