Now that Mars is in Aries, it’s all systems go. The love of speed and the sense of urgency to take action is stronger than ever. It’s about vitality in the moment. We are primal, instinctual creatures now. When Mars meets up with the wildcard planet, Uranus, our reckless impulses prevail. We refuse to be caged or controlled. Individualism, freedom of expression and our need to put our own desires first prevail.
Impulse control is out the window, and we may not even realize that we’re about to drive our car off the cliff, so to speak, so we need to make a conscious effort to slow ourselves down. Even if red flags are blatantly screaming in our face, we won’t heed any such warning signs now. There is nothing strategic about Mars in Aries, and when joined with the eccentric and unpredictable force of Uranus, it’s all about breaking the rules and breaking free.
Don’t expect anyone to stay in the lines. We’re not thinking of consequences. Instant gratification is an understatement during this time. We want what we want, and we want it right this second! If you’re someone who is typically terrified of taking risks, this could be an excellent time to finally break free and take action without your usual hemming and hawing.
Look to where Aries lives in your birth chart to see where you’ll be feeling extra restless, impulsive and daring during this time. By all means, fasten your seatbelt, wear a helmet, look both ways and think twice -- even three times -- before diving head first into any potential danger.
