Aries Monthly Horoscope: Jupiter Retrograde
April 10 — Jupiter Retrograde Begins! It is a time for spiritual introspection and reflection. Jupiter retrograde means that whatever area of growth you need to work on needs to be done, as it is holding you back. The good fortune, increased wealth and new romance that could be in your future will not come until you have done the work. Jupiter goes retrograde until August 11. It’s a time for wisdom to take over your thoughts.
April 11 – Mercury at Greatest Western Elongation. The planet Mercury reaches greatest western elongation of 27.7 degrees from the Sun. This is the best time to view Mercury since it will be at its highest point above the horizon in the morning sky. Look for the planet low in the eastern sky just before sunrise.
Mercury brings an opportunity for positive communication. Mercury is your capacity to use language and symbols, and to be a messenger to others on the importance of being open and honest, and always interact with integrity.
Aries Monthly Horoscope: Full Pink Moon
April 19 – Full Moon in Libra. The Moon will be located on the opposite side of the Earth as the Sun and its face will be fully illuminated. This Full Moon was known by early Native American tribes as the Full Pink Moon because it marked the appearance of the moss pink, or wild ground phlox, which is one of the first spring flowers. This Moon has also been known as the Sprouting Grass Moon, the Growing Moon, and the Egg Moon. Many coastal tribes called it the Full Fish Moon because this was the time that the shad swam upstream to spawn.
The Full, Pink Moon signifies an agreement of our souls uniting in the language of flowers. It is a Moon of prosperity and good fortune. Healing and feelings of protection are strong under this Moon.
April 20 – Taurus Season Begins. This is the day the Sun enters the Zodiac sign Taurus and leaves it on May 20, 2019. This time is seasonally associated with the flourish of spring, when the Earth is green and fresh. Astrologers call it a fixed sign, indicating stability, resistance to change, and the ability to ‘enjoy the people’. It is a time of indulgence and appreciation.
Aries Monthly Horoscope: Lyrids Meteor Shower
April 22, 23 – Lyrids Meteor Shower. The Lyrids is an average shower, usually producing about 20 meteors per hour at its peak. It is produced by dust particles left behind by comet C/1861 G1 Thatcher, which was discovered in 1861. The shower runs annually from April 16-25. It peaks this year on the night of the 22nd and morning of the 23rd. These meteors can sometimes produce bright dust trails that last for several seconds. The Waning Gibbous Moon will block out many of the fainter meteors this year, but if you are patient you should still be able to catch a few of the brightest ones. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Lyra, but can appear anywhere in the sky.
This is the perfect time to Wish upon a Shooting Star. When beginning to observe the Lyrids Meteor Shower, close your eyes and relax. Focus on things that your heart desires the most. Pick the one that is most important to you. Stay focused on this one wish. Open your eyes and wait for the Shooting Star. State your Wish. Then thank the Divine Forces that helped you. Now live it as if it already happened!
It is believed that the act of wishing on a shooting star started during the time of Greek astronomer Ptolemy, around 127 AD to 151 AD. He wrote that sometimes the gods also got bored and curious and would occasionally peer down on earth. And in so doing, some stars slipped through the gap between the spheres and became visible as falling or shooting stars. He further added that the gods were more receptive to wishes made during times like those. Whether it is true or just a myth, tonight, look up at the sky and say, Star light, star bright, the first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight. Then enjoy the beauty of the twinkling stars above.
Aries Monthly Horoscope: Words of Wisdom
Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments.
Aries – The Ram
“A realist, yet a decided idealist, Aries often defies emotional description. No one can show such tough, forceful behavior. Yet, few others are capable of such sentimentality, wistful innocence and belief in miracles.”
Aries is the first astrological sign in the Zodiac. The Ram is the symbol of Aries and represents leadership and action. The Ram’s horn is part of a cornucopia, the “horn of plenty,” symbolizing abundance. Rams are the symbols of leadership. The Aries are the first to start and the first to finish whatever they set out to do. The Sun enters the sign of Aries when it reaches the northern vernal equinox, which occurs around March 21.

What Makes an Aries Tick?
The element associated with Aries is Fire, with other Fire signs being Leo and Sagittarius. Aries people possess inner passion and fire. Those born under this sign are forceful, but children at heart and the world is a magical place for them. Aries are very competitive and expect to be first in everything. They view themselves as courageous leaders, and make poor followers. Ruled by Mars, Aries can be headstrong and crass, sometimes showing an impulsive or reckless approach to issues. They are enthusiastic and decisive.
An Aries personality is loyal and generous to their friends, and are a genuine friend in return. Unfortunately, they are easily annoyed by people who do not move as quickly as they do, and tend to leave these people behind. In any undertaking, if success is not immediate, the Aries tends to lose interest and gives up easily.
An Aries mate is a loving and loyal one. They are faithful while in love, but if love begins to fade, they start to look around. The Leo mate is the one best suited for an Aries. Affectionate Aries individuals are known to pamper their loved ones. Aries are very capable people and expect to be the center of attention. They are happiest in a spirited sporting match, one which they usually will win.
Aries personalities are champions of the underdog. They have strong feelings for those that can’t quite make it or are being wronged, so they take up their fight, even if it puts them in harm’s way. Being the true optimistic, they always believe they will win the fight, so there is no reason to worry. This is possible to them because they feel they are the strongest and the brightest in every situation. An Aries would make a great attorney, they love the fight, and have the drive and intelligence to succeed. Their secret desire, though, is to be a politician because they know they would do a great job, and feel they would be a shoo-in for any position in any election.
