First I will address the Sun moving into Aries so that you will understand the energy. It is important to understand this energy so that you will know how to use the Aries energy in your personal natal chart. The final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your particular Sun Sign. It is important to undertand how the energy of the Sun operates under various conditions (Sun Signs) so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

This Aries energy has the motto of, "I am therefore I am." As you can see it is all about the self and the identity. This is a VERY personal sign because it is about "I am" so it takes things personally, often times way too personal. Somehow, someway, the conversation always comes back to me, myself and I. Depending on the planets in Aries in your Natal Chart will depend on how personal you take Love, your career, family issues, etc., because it will be all about you!

The Sun is exalted in Aries, which is the second strongest placement for the planet. An exaltation is looked as being a 'guest'. Have you ever heard anyone say, "Mi casa, su casa." In Spanish this means, "My house is your house." An exaltation is saying, "Welcome, take your shoes off and stay a while. I enjoy having you here." Translation = It's all about me and my happiness! Me, myself and I. The Sun is the planet of individuality, character and where the Sun is shining brilliantly for the world to see. Aries wants its due attention, which is ME!

This Aries Sun has a strong idea and creativity outlet that needs to be channeled appropriately or it will act out inappropriately. This Aries Sun brings strong will, self-awareness and individual power.

Now for that warning shot. Back on Sunday, March 16, 2014 I fired a warning shot in your Daily Horoscope. And this paragraph is exactly what I wrote. ----> We know that the South Node is in Aries and the North Node is in Libra. The South Node represents the energy of the drain or bottomless pit. No matter how much energy you put into it, the South Node is a HOLE that cannot be filled. The North Node is abundance and where your cup runneth over. It is where you will succeed and where you cannot fail. On Thursday, March 20, 2014 the Sun will move into Aries and land right on top of that South Node until April 19, 2014. The Aries motto is, "I am therefore I am." Aries represents the self, personality, attitude, level of aggression and how you look at the world. Aries can certainly be a very self-involved and a very self-absorbed sign that has to be first. Aries will push women and children aside to be first. It is very competitive, pushy and aggressive. Me, me, me. Enough about me. What do you think of me? This South Node in Aries could easily take a lot of people down into the well of self-pity, which is the ultimate in self-absorption where it is clear you won't be thinking of anyone other than yourself. If you are an Aries, have an Aries Moon, Aries Rising or a lot of planets in Aries, you may be feeling this the most. The rest of us will still feel this where Aries is in our chart or where we have Aries planets. Folks, I would take this as a character building time because it is such selfish energy that people do not want to hear you complain about how bad your Life is when you are blessed beyond what you may realize. Stay out of poor-me-syndrome and pity parties because it will not gain you friends or influence people to your corner of the world. During the month of Aries, focus on the North Node Libra energy, which is about us, we and our. This is not just about you focusing on a romantic partner or marriage, but it could. This North Node Libra energy represents us, we and our, which calls you to be fully present in all of your relationships. In other words, do not sit there with a friend at lunch checking your Facebook. Be present. Take the focus off of you and put it on US! Folks, you are going to be invited to a lot of pity parties during the month of Aries. Turn them down and turn them down fast! You may have already received a few invitations already from those who are Aries, have an Aries Moon, Aries Rising or several planets in Aries since the South Node moved into Aries back in early February 2014. Don't make me say, "I told ya' so" because I will, I'm like that.

So folks, you must play delicately with this Aries Sun because the focus on 'me, myself and I' could prove to be too much. If this is channeled into creatively or self-improvement, something along those lines, that is different. But going on and on and on about yourself and your plights will just not work out for you. Aries is a warrior. Think self-improvement, self-empowerment and self-confidence.

The Sun in Aries is trine (easy and effortless energy) your 5th house of pleasurable activities, dating, love affairs, playtime/acting, sensual emotions, lovers, parenthood and sexuality, creativity, artistic pursuits, hobbies, recreation, procreation, children. It also includes leisure, games, sports, self-fulfillment, joy and bliss.

With the Sun moving through your 5th house of fun and play, your best option is to remain true to yourself and to just be yourself. It just does not get better than that. You may feel like doing something crazy and rebellious right now. You do not have to break any rules, law or regulations in order to have fun. Again - just be yourself and you could attract more dates, fun and pleasurable moments than you have time.

If you can find the time to take a mini-vacation or a full-length vacation, you will more than likely have a ton of fun. Find your way to a sporting event, amusement park and if you feel like asking that special person out on a date, then go for it. Since this is the house of dating, it is a great time to begin dating your romantic partner again. If you are single, a new romance may develop. Scroll down to read your Mercury Opportunity.

Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most. First I will write about Mercury in Aries and then the last couple of paragraphs will be about how it impacts your sign.

Mercury rules the mind and Aries is naturally aggressive and impulsive, as well as highly competitive, which in turn means the individual is incredibly decisive and competitive. This is such a quick thinking placement that decisions are made rapidly and impulsively. While ideas may come fast and furious there is a tendency for knee-jerk reactions, which means actions are taken without much thought. Also, since Aries is the sign of me, myself and I, then an individual tends to take things too personal and makes every word or conversation about themselves. Somehow, someway, the conversation will come back to the self. For instance, if one individual said that they didn't like something, the Aries mind would say, "Well I don't do that!" Well, the other person didn't say the Aries did, the other person was talking about themselves but Aries turned into something about them. GEEEZ! This reminds me of Justin Bieber when he went to Anne Frank's house and wrote in the guestbook, "Truly inspiring to be able to come here. Anne was a great girl. Hopefully she would have been a belieber." The response from the public was, "Way to take an inspiring story and turn it around to yourself!"

Mercury in Aries is impatient and absolutely abhors delays, detours and roadblocks. They will take that head and ram it right up against the gate whether the time is right or not. This placement can also result in quite a temper accompanied by pushiness. I don't know anyone who really enjoys pushiness. Mercury in Aries would rather make an impulsive decision just so that they don't have to engage in a long decision-making process or a lengthy conversation for that matter. This placement is headstrong (mind) and presents itself with an egotistical (self) intellectual (mind) attitude. This placement also reminds me of a bad golf shot due to swinging so fast that there was no follow-through. If you aren't a golfer, then maybe a swinging a baseball bat with no follow-through is a better mental picture. During this transit, you must think 'follow-through'.

Mercury in Aries is trine (easy and effortless energy) your 5th house of children, creativity, fun, games and sport, intimacy, dating, playtime/acting, sensual emotions, pleasurable affairs, lovers, parenthood and sexuality.

The planet Mercury also rules the mind and thinking. Since this is the house of fun and children, your mind is more focused on having a Good time. It is also the house of creativity; therefore, your mind is expressing itself in a more amusing and child-like fashion. To others you may appear to be the jokester. The interesting thing while you are out having a Good time, you will learn more about yourself and all the fun will prove to be educational, only the education will be about you. How fun is that? It is just like whistling while you work. Scroll down to read your Venus Opportunity.

First let's talk about the meaning of Venus in the sign of Leo. Venus is the planet of Love, romance, pleasure, relationships, self-worth, dignity and all things beautiful. Venus is like the Greek root phil- or philo- which means to have a Love of or strong affinity for. So when you think of Venus in your personal natal chart first think "Love of" and then add whatever sign is involved.

Pisces rules the 12th house of silent suffering and solitude. Pisces represents what goes on behind closed doors that you don't want others to see or know about you. It presents reflection, prayer, meditation, the silent sufferer and introspection. Pisces rules spiritual healing and faith healing. It rules areas behind closed doors where people are not openly seen such as hospitals, prisons, jails and institutions. This is where people silently suffer. This is also very monk-like or cloistered nun behavior. Pisces rules the psychological mind and mental health.

Pisces is naturally ruled by Neptune, the planet of dreams, visions, altared states, drunkedness, stupors, alcohol, drugs, drug habits, gases and gasoline, fairytales, fables, chemistry, bluffing, black magic, the abnormal, cheating, betrayal and hydration . . . just to name a few things. Not only is Venus in Pisces right now, but Neptune is in Pisces right now as well. Neptune is the higher octave of Venus, so we are really over the Moon in 'Love' and fairy tale right now.

So you can see, when you put "Love of" or phil- in front of any of these words, there will be an affinity for these things. Venus in Pisces can cause people to be so drunk in Love that they Love at all costs, which translates into unconditional Love. This can show up two ways 1) I Love you unconditionally and 2) I Love you unconditionally, so go ahead and do anything you want to hurt me and I will still be here Loving you. Venus in Pisces is absolutely hands down, unconditional and punch drunk Love. Venus in Pisces Loves even when it doesn't make sense or isn't healthy. It's unconditional.

Venus is exalted in the sign of Pisces, which means it is the second strongest placement for the planet. It's often looked as being a 'guest' in this house. Have you ever heard anyone say, "Mi casa, su casa." In Spanish this means, my house is your house. An exaltation is saying, "Welcome, take your shoes off and stay a while." Venus is definitely on a 'high' right now just like it is under the influence of cupid's arrow that is laced with an aphrodisiac. Hmmmmmm, what happens when Venus moves out of Pisces into Aries and this aphrodisiac wears off? Venus in Aries will be saying, "What about me! Love me!" I wouldn't get too wrapped up in punch drunk Love right now because it can turn out to be bittersweet. And I sure as heck would not be mixing alcohol with Love right now. Absolutely NOT! Chiron is also in Pisces for four more years. Scroll down to the bottom of this page to see that information. During this transit, if you cannot handle one glass of wine and stopping right there, then you don't need to be pouring the first glass to begin with during this transit.

The sign of Pisces incredibly sensitive in every sense of the word and because they are so sensitive then their sonar (intuition) is incredibly accurate. Pisces is sensitive to another person's plights and a suckerfish for a sob story. Since they are sensitive physically and emotionally, they are sensitive to alcohol and drugs. Again, watch the level of booze you put into your body because it will mess up your intuition and take you off your game. Not to mention put you further into a state of punch drunk Love. Pisces is also very benevolent, so this transit could make you over-benevolent and over-giving.

Venus in Pisces can produce some incredibly lonely feelings as well. Remember, Pisces rules all of those places where people are alone. So an individual could Love so much during this transit to the point of loneliness because the other person is unable match their affection. It can certainly lead to disappointment to say the least. While Venus in Pisces may be exalted, I find it nothing but a damn fairytale and punch drunk. Wake up folks, the Love pheromones are getting to you. Snap out of it! Stay alert!

One thing that will occur during this transit is some darn Good writing including spiritual, song and poetry writing because the mind is really diving deep and going behind the scenes to get in touch with deep seated emotions, especially while Venus and Chiron are also in Pisces. This is fantabulous writing energy for going out into the ethers without having to really smell it.

Venus in Pisces is squaring (challenging) your 4th house of home and family, roots, heritage, private life, father, land, property, residences, and domestic affairs.

This is a time where affections with the home and family are prominent. Somehow it is easier to ignore quality time with the home and family, thereby placing more attention on other cares of the day. This is a Good time to make known to your family that they are priorities in your Life and that they do matter to you above and beyond anything else that you may have going on. Draw yourself closer to your family and make deliberate and purposeful connections with each family member.

There may be a tendency to over-eat and over-cook during this time. You may also have a tendency to spend more money on the home in the line of furniture or other creature comforts that create the feeling of redecorating. Your new and improved focus on the family is similar to redecorating the family. The 4th house is naturally ruled by the nurturing aspects of the moon, meaning mother. It's a great time to use your own nurturing influences to influence the family, whether you are a man or woman. Scroll down to read your Mars Opportunity.

Check out the Mars Moving Through the Signs Calendar. Dates are listed from 1920 up until 2015.

First I will address the Mars in Libra and then the final few paragraphs will be how it pertains to your Sun Sign. It is important to undertand the energy of Mars and how it operates so that you can better understand how it will operate in your own Life.

Mars is the planet of assertion and drive. Mars is the testosterone in the chart. It will describe the degree of force that we go after what we want. Mars will tell us whether we are forceful and confrontational or if we prefer to sit back and watch. It will also reveal what motivates us and what desires drive us most powerfully. The house that Mars occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

Mars will remain in the sign of Libra for quite some time simply because it is going to go through a Retrograde period from March 1, 2014 until May 20, 2014. Mars usually remains in a Sun Sign for about 6 weeks but this time it will last 7-1/2 months. Having said that, Mars will remain in the sign of Libra until July 25, 2014.

Mars in Libra is in its 'Detriment'. The 'detrimental' placement is like a feisty child throwing a temper tantrum in the grocery store. Basically, it acts out inappropriately at the wrong time and wrong place. This is because Mars naturally rules Aries, which is Libra's opposite sign, so Mars is in its opposite natural placement. This Mars in Libra transit is going to be Good, great, bad and ugly throughout its transit in Libra.

This would really be a great transit most of the time if it didn't need so dang much approval from others. Mars by nature is aggressive and assertive, which is something that Libra is not (although they can be under certain circumstances) and that is once they have been revved up enough. It doesn't take much to rev up an Aries but once Libra gets going, they are relentless. Libra wants balance, harmony and to sing 'Kumbya' so much that they will compromise too much. This causes them to over-compromise, which then leads to imbalance, which is exactly what they didn't want in the first place. Arrrghhhh! If you are looking for cooperation during this aspect, it may be there sometimes and then completely disappear. During this Mars in Libra transit we will experience and opposition with Uranus in Aries on December 25, 2013 (remember, Mars naturally rules Aries) and it will also square Pluto in Capricorn on December 30, 2013. Toward the end of December 2013, Mars will be dealing a few blows . . blow by blow. BAM! Take that! What the freak! Things were going so well and then the last week of December 2013 came along. Honestly, I wouldn't be boozing it up this New Year's Eve. It would be best if everyone just took a chill pill and chillaxe on the couch.

Libra just wants to be in Love and wants everyone else to be in Love. Libra is very feminine and Mars is very masculine. This energy can show up two very different ways. It can look like the 'seemingly' beautiful, graceful and elegant woman who has a chip on her shoulder. When she turns around she's smoking a cigarette, cussing like a sailor and has a can of bear with cigarette ashes on top of the beer can. On the other hand, this Libra energy can boost the Mars energy with some grace and refinement. Remember, Mars is aggressive and it is also selfish as Aries is THE MOST selfish sign of the zodiac. Where Aries thinks of me, myself and I; Libra thinks we, us and our. Mars in Libra can bring some 'couple awareness' to an individual. Aries (Mars) has a tendency to say, "Me, me, me! Enough about me. What do you think of me?" Mars can actually be a little tamed under this Libra influence. It won't be without a few challenges when Uranus in Aries gets ahold of the energy and opposes or when Pluto in Capricorn squares it. Believe me, after 7-1/2 months with Mars in Libra, it will have to succumb to the harmonious energy and soften itself. Too much aggression makes others fight, stand back or just plain walk away. None are these are great choices but it is what we will be dealing with during this 7-1/2 months Mars in Libra stay, especially at the end of December 2013.

I can just see some high level conversations going on and then all of the sudden the energy shifts and arguments begin. This is some high heat and if you know this ahead of time, then you won't even engage in converation with difficult people or conversations with your mate that could lead to disaster. There is going to be a lot of moral chatter going on and what's so funny is that the people who shout the loudest are usually the ones who donate the least or volunteer the least. If you listen closely to what these individuals are saying, they may not really be concerned with what the subject matter is, except for the fact that the subject matter might impact them in some way and THAT my dear little mentators reveals the selfishness of Mars. It really wasn't about the subject matter at all, it was how it impact them. Keep in mind, the 'them' could be you. You could be one of 'them' that I am talking about here. OUCHY!

When Mars in Libra becomes afflicted (challenged) when it becomes aspected by the opposition of Uranus in Aries on December 25, 2013 or when it becomes aspected by the square of Pluto in Capricorn on December 30, 2013 there will likely be arguments, fights, disagreements and even separation of relationships. Folks, I'm telling you, this is very challenging and I would put the booze and partying on hold and have that quiet evening at home to celebrate New Year's 2014. Start off the year on the right foot instead of the wrong energy. Did I mention that Pluto is the higher octave of Mars? Yep, it sure is and this deals a double whammy of Mars energy to mix. It's like Mars and Pluto will be fighting with each other. With that kind of aggressive energy, who really wins? Seriously!

Mars is all about AGGRESSION and DRIVE! Mars in Libra is moving through your 11th house of friends, groups of people, social acquaintances, organizations, alliances, fraternities, memberships, money from the employer, finances of employer and stock exchanges. It is also about your hopes, wishes and dreams.

With such an aggressive planet moving through your 11th house, this is a great time to work in cooperation with others by working in groups, teams and organizations. You may have to put your own ego in check during this time because this is a learning experience and no one person knows everything all the time. You will get more accomplished right now if you work in cooperation with others. This means if you need help, then ask for it. If someone else needs help, do not wait to be asked for assistance. Volunteer to help before you are asked. Working as a team player will work in your favor during this time. Scroll down to read your Chiron Opportunity.

Chiron is Retrograde in Pisces from June 16, 2013 until November 19, 2013. This is when you will have to retrace your steps and get in touch with your own woundology. When you can source your own woundology, then it will be easier to understand others and assist them. The subject matter below in your 4th house is where you will be retracing your steps during this Retrograde period.

Chiron is all about discovering your WOUNDED HEALTH WITHIN! For all Sagittarian's this involves your 4th house of home, family, domestic affairs, the mother, land and the biological and psychological foundation. Chiron is an asteroid and is called, the wounded healer. Chiron, the Wounded Healer, represents our emotional and physical wounds. It reveals a part of us that is hurt, small and vulnerable. Chiron encourages us to heal our wounds, and then look beyond personal realms, to see the suffering of others, and to become teachers and healers. The house that Chiron occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.

There is a thought that we create our own suffering because we continue to cling to material possessions, behaviors, beliefs and ideas that we need to release in order to move to our higher-self. Ahhhhhh . . read that sentence again for a deeper impact. Wherever you find Chiron in your Natal Chart, it represents where you suffer and how you can release your own suffering to move forward in Life.
