Has it ever occurred to you that even if you don't achieve all your goals, you're still better for trying? Compare yourself with people who admit defeat before they even get out of bed in the morning â€“ you have a lot to be proud of. Your past efforts might not have taken you exactly where you wanted to be today, but they took you in the right direction. The rest of the journey might be laborious, but it will eventually lead to its proper conclusion.
AriesMar 21 – Apr 19
The week begins with a bang. Well, more like a big kiss. Romance and/or adventure figure strongly â€“ whatever it is, it'll have your heart pounding around inside your chest. The excitement of Monday and Tuesday will dull by midweek, when a bunch of deadlines (on some relatively mundane responsibilities) zap your energy. On Thursday, do something to blow off steam and help yourself stay fit, and on Friday, if you're feeling some friction between you and someone else, regard their feelings. You are charming. All will be fine. This weekend, you turn over a new leaf.
November can be tricky to navigate, Aries, so stay on your toes. The big news for you this month is Uranus retrograde backing into your sign on November 6 and creating a lot of urgency to get things done. Is this chaos? Not necessarily, but your desire to do things in an unusual (or just different) way could be more of a hindrance than a help.
Venus is also retrograde when she forms a friendly trine to Mars on the ninth, increasing your need for social contact but not necessarily ensuring that things will work out the way youâ€™d like them to. You rarely back down from a challenge (youâ€™re usually the one running toward the fire, not away from it), but the retrograde of Venus might dish out more than youâ€™re prepared for. You arenâ€™t one to give up, but thereâ€™s nothing wrong with taking a few steps back when you realize that things arenâ€™t going your way.
The sun enters adventurous Sagittarius on November 22, and your need to connect with the world (and something bigger than yourself) is high. Traveling and higher education are your focus. Donâ€™t limit yourself to what you can see.
