If you've felt a little on fire of late in a good way, thank your lucky Stars. Your ruler Mars has been in the sign of Scorpio which - as the name suggests - is the sign with the sting in its tail. Hopefully you've had an amazing time as you've powered your way through life as only an Aries can do. Now as Mars prepares to change signs and move into Libra, you need to slow down a little and start to find a balance in your life. Where there are issues with a partner (personal or professional) it's going to be a very good time to DIPLOMATICALLY clear the air.
What happens between now and the end of the first week of August could come as a rather wonderful surprise. Or it could come as a surprise you simply weren't expecting and you're not sure how to deal with it. Obviously telling you this doesn't help you THAT much but there is something we can glean from the planetary alignments coming up for you now. You need to go with the flow. Make this your mantra. Taureans like it when things are fixed and steady. However, you need to let go a little and slide.
Your powers of persuasion will be higher than they are right now - but not much! If you have something you need to talk someone into or out of, put it this way, talking (or writing) about it now will do you a lot of good and is unlikely to do you any harm at all, especially if you focus on getting a win/win outcome. The most important thing to get right in any discussions or exchanges that you have is attention to detail. Big picture stuff is fine some of the time, you'll win your case with fine points.
Hopefully you are starting to feel a whole lot more refreshed than you have done in some time. Someone or something or perhaps a visit somewhere has boosted you. Yes that, and the fact that the Sun has just been back in your sign for its annual visit so you should be feeling energised thanks to that as well. So what to do with all this energy? Now is a very good time to plan you and strategise. People are in the mood to listen to what you say, so make a note of your thoughts and start communicating!
If there is a relationship which feels like it's going down the tube, ask yourself how hard you want to work to save it. Or are you better just letting it slip away for now? Your answer might be a resounding NO but if you do suspect perhaps you need some time out from it, then now is a very good time not to kick and scream and try to keep things going. In fact, the cosmic timing is perfect for you to move on from someone or something, if you sense the time is right.
You are one of the signs in a winning position right now when it comes to making your point or getting your message across. And isn't that half of the battle half of the time? So don't be shy and definitely don't do the Naughty Virgo thing and censor yourself, your thoughts and what you have to say even before you've said it. You don't get chances like this every day so speak up for yourself. You're at the end of a long road, so keep confident that you're about to turn the proverbial corner!
Are you channelling your energy wisely? Or are you doing the classic thing and beating your head against a brick wall? Woe betide anyone who seems to be wasting your time today. You're not going to suffer fools AT ALL (let alone gladly) today. However with all that said, today can be an amazing day for getting ahead and being very constructive. Put your head down and get on with things and you could be amazed at the progress you make. Be careful if you're dealing with someone in authority. Give them the reverence they expect, for best results!
Your ruler Mars meets Saturn very soon which means you might be feeling one of two things; either empowered and ready to steamroll your way through any and every obstacle which lies in your way (in which case, hurrah for you!) or you might be focusing on the negative and allowing every hitch to get you down. If you're more of the second than the first, I suggest you get yourself a copy of Losing My Virginity by Richard Branson. He shows us how it's done in good times and tough times.
You might feel as though you're up against it now - but in fact, what you're going through is all a part of a major personal growth cycle so pay attention and see what messages the Universe is sending you. You're being asked to stay confident and cheerful even as the landscape all around you slowly but surely changes. The more you look for reasons to love yourself, the happier you're going to be, so if you feel as though your self-esteem needs a boost, ask someone who loves you to remind you of what's so great about you!
What do you need to let go of? Right now, your chart looks a bit like someone who's having seller's remorse - you know, where you sell your house (for example) and then regret it. But it's really just a part of the process of letting go. Whatever you're letting go of now out of your life, remind yourself that it's the right time to do it cosmically and chances are you actually put a fair bit of thought into what you're doing before you did it, so don't go second-guessing and upsetting yourself now!
You should start to feel a lot calmer now as the effects of the Full Moon in your sign start to diminish. If you feel like the past few days have knocked you for six, then take it easy and allow yourself the time to recover. Sometimes Full Moons can bring climaxes and emotional intensity that we didn't really see coming. If something in your life has come to some kind of crescendo and you're still dealing with it - fine, take the time you need. If you're looking for solution, think outside the box.
If you've been at loggerheads with a few people over the past few weeks, thank Mars for helping you to get the air cleared. It's time to move on from that phase. And where you wouldn't exactly call it "being at loggerheads" but you've had a chance to get a few things straight with other people, then ditto - it's all good and you can now start to turn your attention to other things. And if those things are to do with money, then so much the better, as you are in a position to start making changes.
