2016 Yearly Horoscope: aries


Your ruler, the rambunctious Mars with a takes-no-prisoners manner, zig zags through the houses of your chart in 2016. He pays special attention to personal growth, love and marriage, and the expansion of philosophy and just regular wandering around.

Mars begins the year making direct hits to the house of both one-on-one intimacy, and funds received from other people. He stays on a wild ride through that house for the first eight months of the year with an occasional peek into the house of philosophical thinking. Neptune is his silent partner, bringing a spiritual element to life... a kind of acceptance or "it is what it is" attitude.

Jupiter is in the house of the workplace and in this position gives you a sense of purpose, better working conditions, or possibly a new job with increased salary. Since this house is also connected to your health, Jupiter brings you more vitality and physical strength.

In September this lucky star moves into the house of marriage and improves on an already blooming love affair or your marriage. If you're single he has been known to bring that special person to the scene.


Mars has never been a team player and this year he is even more of a loner, with a story of his own to live out, and it's the tale of lust, lost love, and romantic wandering. An attached Aries could find their eyes roving at certain intervals during this year of sexy and dangerous romance. If single you are feeling the lucky vibrations and could do something totally out of character because your ruler is out of bounds, meaning he's thinking out of the box and believes anything is possible.

March hosts two eclipses and is a powerful month for you personally. The first is a Solar Eclipse on March 8th in Pisces, ruled by Neptune. We never really know what this savant with rose colored glasses will conjure up or if the feelings are authentic, but one thing is certain: It will be magical, and an experience that later could find itself in a memoir.

The second is a Lunar Eclipse in the partnership sign of Libra on March 23rd. This is almost always an emotional time, as an old issue or forgotten dream swims to the surface. The vibrations from an Eclipse last for six months and could slide right into Jupiter who moves into Libra in September along with two more eclipses.

Jupiter is the largest star in the heavens and means business, and you have feelings that want to be brought back to life. It could be that you are on a quest to find a special someone or their lookalike. This year, your ruler the warrior Mars is a lover and not a fighter and he is going to get a lot of help with all that loving along the way from his old friend Venus.

As if intimacy isn't already a priority in your life, Aries, when Venus saunters into the already hot Eighth House, you, the playful Ram, get serious. Venus forms an enticing trine to the September 16th Lunar Eclipse, and by mid-October, and it could be the beginning of the relationship you have been searching for.

As the end of the year approaches, you should feel like you finally have achieved the intimacy that you so deeply desire and this happiness adds a new dimension to your attractiveness.


The good news is that Saturn, the architect of destiny, is quietly taking you to a career peak. He is near the Midheaven and within the next year or two you can expect to see the benefits of the diligence you have put into your career. You better understand the rules, your superiors are more aware of your particular talents, and you are concentrating on playing the game of life more skillfully.

The rebel Uranus has been in your sign for several years now and during this time you may have redefined your career. If you haven't, you formed a new attitude toward your work or have a new relationship with it. If you have stayed in the same position Uranus may have helped you find new responsibilities that offered different challenges.

Mars, your ruler, is also in the Ninth House and is out of bounds most of the year. This means that he is not only in an aggressive mood, but thinking out of the box more often than usual. He's going to cross the finish line to success before Saturn gets there and it's possible these two competitive stars are in a race of sorts (vying self-interests for you). They meet up in late August and compare notes, or possibly try to slow each other down.

Saturn is steady and stays the course while Mars at times may be trying to take the easy way/short cuts. March coincides with a Solar Eclipse that challenges the career timetable you've been working with, aka it possibly speeds it up.

Even the impatient among you Rams know what you have to do if you want to make a greater mark on the world, and the always competitive Aries wants exactly that. For now and for many years to come you have the sure and steady Pluto in the Tenth House of your career, holding the course. When you think long-term, this wily star is the hero of that scenario, giving you the energy and power to achieve that goal you've long been after achieving.
