The zodiac sign of Aries is in the hot seat now and will continue to be so until the major part of May 2011 with many planets in it – the Sun, Mars, Mars, Venus (in May), Jupiter, Uranus and occasionally the Moon. What makes it even more interesting is that Saturn is transiting the opposite sign, Libra. A damper for all that Aries energy – is a good idea to keep the balance – but if you are a true Arian I bet you won’t think so.
Aries energy is unstoppable, upbeat, action oriented, fast, competitive, intense and focused on one thing (can be anything) until they get bored with it and move on to the next exciting project. So the Saturn energy in Libra can provide some structure and discipline for the Aries energy. This is a good time to use the Aries energy to get some project done – hopefully the kind that does not need a lot of detail but a whole lot of physical energy! This is also a great time to work on your fitness goals as Aries is physical, especially with Mars transiting its own sign. The Saturn energy opposing the Aries Stellium could mean that there is an external force that is pressurizing you to take action, work more, complete that task that has been put off for a long time, etc.
Where does Aries fall in you chart? The house placement where Aries falls in your birth chart is the area where you may be driven to take some action. This is specifically an important period for those who have one or more planets in Aries as you will for sure be called into action. If Aries falls in your 6th house you may want to put in more time at work or you may be compelled (since Saturn is in the opposite sign and can signify authority) to do so by a authority figure. If this stellium falls in the 7th house, there may be a lot of action with close relationships, business partnerships, etc. Aries fall in the 8th house for me and for the past few day there has been some pressure to take care of joint investments. I have both Sun and Mars in Aries. Can’t wait to see what else happens.
Update: I went through a minor surgery (very 8th house energy) and with all the wonderful planets (Venus, Mercury and Jupiter) on my Sun during the time of surgery all went well and I healed quickly. I knew with all the planets in Aries in my 8th house, something has to happen, and it did.
