Aries Week: 11-17 February 2019
We live in an age of Instagram, Facebook, Selfie Sticks and instant judgement, based on your particular name, photograph, video, title or Wikipedia write-up, perhaps. It’s the age of Social Me-Me-Me-Media and you have been at the core of it all, for around 10 years, Aries. The reason for this is the long transit of Uranus, the planet of new technology and fresh inventions, in your own zodiac sign. In turn, your sign is associated with the standard-bearer or aquilifer of the Roman army, who was always upfront, holding up the symbol or totem of the legion. You’re a flag-flyer for yourself this week, or for something you feel passionately about. This is not just seven days of challenge, Aries. It is part of an epic cycle which does not end until 2038. You have already had about a decade of it, which might explain why your reputation, name, title, style, shape, look, profile and the rest has been so hugely important, for such a long time. On Tuesday-Thursday you need to be highly strategic about yourself, the way the Romans were highly strategic about their aquilifer. If you are going to be front-and-centre, then you need to figure out what works. Your own ruling planet Mars will be in conjunction with Uranus, a symbol of independence, freedom, rebellion and revolution at this time. Clearly, you are looking for freedom from something – or freedom through something! Mars can turn up the emotional heat, pump the adrenaline and kick off instant reactions. That may or may not be helpful. Constructively, you can be like your fellow Aries Elton John and rebel against your birth name, your lack of hair and the generally conservative British male wardrobe. Less helpfully, Aries, you could so easily bolt into some battle or other, flying the flag or bearing the standard for yourself – without thinking it through. Mars, your ruler, was in fact the god who ruled the Roman army and if anyone knew a thing or two about strategy, it was those chaps. Slowing down will help. And truly, this cycle is around for about another 20 years. Not always this inflammatory or fast-paced, but certainly you’ll have your image at the heart of so much that you care about and choose, for a couple of decades to come.
