“I'm single because I was born that way.”
― Mae West
When the planet of love joins with the wildcard energy of Uranus in pioneering Aries on March 28, our instinct for independence prevails. Our erratic, rebel-yell impulses dominate. We may find ourselves stirring up trouble in existing relationships just to reclaim our individuality and freedom.
The best way to use this influence is to reconnect with yourself in your true, authentic essence as an individual. Use your relationships as a mirror to come back to self and honor your uniqueness. After weeks of the Pisces influence, Venus in Aries rejects the experience of trying to merge or get lost in another. If you have a difficult time asserting your needs in relationships, this is an excellent opportunity to break out of any co-dependent patterns. The Aries energy is very direct and clear about what it wants and what it needs. There is very little patience with unmet needs or any lack of respect for our individualism now.
It’s important to stay very true to even your most basic, primal and selfish needs for the time being, or you could find yourself pitching fits and tantrums that actually feel out of your control. This is an influence of shaking up the status quo in your relationship patterns. What have you been afraid to assert up until this point? Where are you still denying yourself in order to be liked or to keep the peace? Where do you still fall prey to passive-aggressive measures?
The current dose of heavy Aries influence is about to bust through all such wishy-washy nonsense. Tremendous breakthroughs are possible now if you’re willing to take the risk and put yourself out there. Champion your own cause! Watch how staying true to yourself actually strengthens your relationships.
