January 1st-January 26th: They Find You Very Attractive
In the first month of 2018, with Mars transiting the eight astrological house, you have personal power, self-confidence and you easily attract a partner (or more partners, depends what you want). So, great news for single Aries – they will be lonely no more. The ones who already are involved will build a more intimate relationship with their partner. Nothing superficial will satisfy Aries during this time; they need profound and meaningful experiences with others.
Saturday, March 31st: O, Beware, My Lord, of Jealousy!
The last day of March is a special day: there is a Full Moon, also called a Blue Moon (an extra full moon in a month, after Full Moon in Virgo, on March 2nd; the term has nothing to do with the actual colour of the moon). There is a tendency to be more jealous and possessive than usual, but you must control it. Jealousy shows that you are insecure about what you are and it becomes problematic when it starts to consume you, when turns into obsession. Listen to Shakespeare’s Iago, he knows best:
O, beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock
The meat it feeds on; that cuckold lives in bliss
Who, certain of his fate, loves not his wronger;
But, O, what damned minutes tells he o’er
Who dotes, yet doubts, suspects, yet strongly loves!
July 26th-August 19th: Is This Love, Baby, or Is It a, just Confusion?
Having Mercury moving backward in the fifth house, things aren’t clear, in your love life. If you care for a person even knowing his or her faults, this is love! if you are attracted to him/her, but also to his/her friend or brother/sister, this is not love. If you wake up happy if only because you get to see him/her that day, it is love! If emotional security isn’t important to you, but you are more interested in being physical together, this is not love. If you never truly get tired of him/her and seeing him/her is the best part of your day, it’s definitely love!
August 11th: Go on a Date!
With New Moon In the fifth house, this is a passionate time for Aries, who feels like bringing more romance into his/her relationship. Start each new day with a ten second hug and kiss! End your day leaving a flower on the pillow before your partner goes to bed. If you are shopping alone, get some surprise gifts for your partner. There are many ways to do it. For single Aries, this is one of the best days to go on a date. Dress to impress and listen attentively what he/she says, because nothing is as charming as a good listener.
October 6th-November 16th: Stop Feeling Hurt!
Having Venus moving backward in your eighth and seventh astrological houses, your feelings can be hurt easily. Emotional sensitivity is healthy, but over-sensitivity can limit your ability to lead a happy life. Pema Chodron was right saying that „it isn’t what happens to us that causes us to suffer; it’s what we say to ourselves about what happens”. Do not dwell on the past and remember that even negative events that happen in your life are learning opportunities. Search for the lesson and move on!
December 1st-December 6th: Discuss about Money!
At the beginning of December, having Mercury retrograde in the eighth house for six days, you need to evaluate your intimate relationship. You don’t need much philosophy – just think if both you and your partner feel happy and fulfilled. Discuss about it! The eight house also rules joint funds and finances, so it is a good idea to have an honest discussion about money, because it is important to know exactly what is happening with your money as a couple.
December 6th-December 31st: Secret Desires
On December 6th, Mercury turns direct in Aries’ eighth astrological house. Now, it is easier for couples to approach sensitive, intimate, even taboo matters with rationality and logic. This is probably the best time to tell your partner all of your secret desires. With one condition: your partner also has to tell you what his/her desires and secret fantasies are. Sharing this will help you know each other better and will build trust in your relationship. Then, there is the best part: you will help each other to fulfil these secret desires.
