Aries | Horoscope Expert


Mar 21 – Apr 19

Be careful not to make assumptions about how other people will or won't behave today. You can never predict how someone will react to surprising news. The people around you might seem like they are overreacting, but one person's overreaction is another person's reasonable reaction. It's time to live and let live and stop worrying if other people aren't fitting in with the picture you've created in your head. Reality is more interesting than people give it credit for.

You won't win any races at the beginning of the week; going slow will be your MO. It's good to exercise patience, and there's a kind of quiet force that comes along with not rushing anyone. That said, by Wednesday, you'll be rushing all around. People who send you long, gushing emails will get a one-sentence response. Friends or coworkers who want an in-depth discussion of the details on Thursday will have to wait for a better day. Friday finds you flirting with you-know-who, but nothing heavy. Parents and relatives are a prominent part of your weekend – or they're on your mind.

The sun is in individualistic Aquarius as February begins, which is an energy that encourages you to be exactly who you are, quirks and all. If someone doesn’t like all of your little idiosyncrasies, then they don’t have to hang out with you. Period!

Loving Venus joins aloof Aquarius on February 1, so your relationships might feel a shift in physical or emotional closeness for the coming weeks. It isn’t that you don’t care about your loved ones, but you want space to explore the world on your own. You’re more than happy to talk about your experiences after the fact, but for the time being you rather like the thought of flying solo.

You have a short temper when Mercury squares your ruler Mars on the tenth, and you might jump to conclusions before you’ve heard the whole story. Why are you so quick to make assumptions, Aries? This won’t be the first time your temper has gotten you into trouble, but in the future you might want to work on thinking more about what you say before you say it.

The sun leaves outgoing Aquarius for shy, gentle Pisces on February 18, leaving you more subdued and quieter than usual. As the last sign of the zodiac, the Pisces energy puts you in a reflective mood, and thinking about what has transpired in the past month can be cathartic. If you feel the need to do better, nothing is stopping you.
