Yearly Horoscope: 2013 Predictions for Aries

Aries (Born March 21 to 31) - 0 to 10 degrees Aries:


2013 Overview for All Aries. Uranus continues to stir the pot for you in 2013, dear Aries, but especially so for those born March 25 to April 2nd, whose Sun receives the conjunction. This is a time for releasing attachments that are preventing you from moving forward. Watch for rebellious behavior, but do make changes that move you forward, past limitations, and towards a more authentic "you". Saturn has left its opposition to Aries, and this takes some of the direct pressure off your lives. Jupiter has moved into a harmonious relationship with your sign in the first half of the year, and is helping to open the lines of communication in your life. In the second half of 2013, although Jupiter will square your sign, this planet of abundance will nevertheless feed your sense of security and stability, and many Aries will find this transit comforting, particularly given all of the changes that have been taking place in your lives. There will be times when you will need to slow yourself down and choose your battles wisely, particularly in May and October-November. Heavyweight planets are directly affecting the sectors of your chart that rule how the world views you, both professionally and personally. You continue to move away from false paths that no longer serve you well, or transforming them into more suitable ones. Overall, however, you have plenty of opportunity this year to find comfort at home or with family. In fact, this is a year in which the major key to success is learning when it's time to slow down. Impulsiveness, while it's a signature Aries trait, should be tamed somewhat in 2013. Planning more carefully for your future is important, particularly with finances on the leaner side (there may be less support from others, for example). Save as much as possible. Good energy is with you for dealing with debt. Love and romance are unlikely to make headlines for you this year (2014 is more likely to be a year of change in this department), The desire to move to a larger home or to create the illusion of more space by eliminating clutter is strong in the second half of the year. If circumstances allow, this can be a good time to launch new projects or even a business. Many of you would prefer not to travel in 2013. Relationships with siblings and possibly neighbors can be stimulating and even healing, and activities close to home (and on or in the home) are very appealing now.

2013 Details.

Until June 25th, Jupiter continues to move through your solar third house. During this cycle, educational and communication opportunities present themselves. You may increase your knowledge and skills set, and find much enjoyment in so doing. During this long-term trend, neighbors or relatives could be especially helpful in your life. You express your ideas with more enthusiasm and positivity, and they are received well. You are able to comprehend more complicated subjects and problems, and you are able to explain them in such a way that others can readily understand; thus, teaching, authoring, or otherwise delivering information may be prosperous now. Higher level studies, courses, and perhaps some travel opportunities might arise during this cycle. Many of you will benefit from taking courses if you aren't already doing so, and those already involved in studies will benefit more than usual during this period. You may decide to buy a new car, or transportation opportunities present themselves, making it much easier for you to get from point A to point B. Gifts, benefits, or other opportunities may come through visits, short trips, messages, emails, or they could come through contacts with siblings, classmates, and neighbors. Some sort of positive news or announcement is likely to be part of the picture. If you're an author, teacher, or other position in communications, you will find more opportunities to advance your trade as your creative juices flow nicely. If you're a student, school is especially favored. If you're in business, you are likely to find sales are especially strong. In general, you find much joy in communicating, learning, and socializing. These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.

With Jupiter, always keep in mind that while opportunities present themselves that have a positive influence in your life, Jupiter expands and magnifies all that it touches, so that if you are having difficulties in these areas of life, these problems may be magnified before they can be dealt with. So, for example, if you have difficulties with a sibling relationship (one of the things ruled by the solar third house), this might be magnified now and this way you can better deal with it and solve the problem.

The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar third house, from January 30th to June 25th.

Jupiter entering Cancer on June 25th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar fourth house. From June 2013 to July 2014, you are likely to see benefits to home, family, property, and domestic comfort matters. Much joy and pleasure can be found in your family connections and experiences and/or your home life during this cycle. An increased sense of security and safety may be derived from your domestic life. Improvements to your home life, family, and basic psychological foundation are in focus. You might find that inner and personal experiences are more important to you during this cycle than more worldly ones. Opportunities to buy or sell real estate for financial gain may present themselves. Home improvements and renovations are favored, as is moving to a new dwelling (more spacious or larger homes are likely now). Some of you may buy or sell a house, and others may welcome a new addition to the family. You may move to a larger or more comfortable home; or you might enhance your existing home in such a way that makes you feel happier, perhaps by de-cluttering your space. Long-standing family problems may be ironed out. Relationships with parents and other family members go well. You may find special enjoyment through getting in touch with, or researching, your roots or family traditions. There could be a family reunion, vacation, or other event that gives you a stronger sense of connection to your family. Family may help you financially or an inheritance is possible for some of you. You take more pleasure in nurturing others. A stronger sense of psychological well-being may come now, as you take less interest in more worldly ambitions and activities. These positive circumstances won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.

Because Jupiter rules your ninth house and is now in your fourth house, some of you could be taking formal courses from home during this period. Some of you could become closer with in-laws during this period. Some Aries might welcome friends from overseas into their homes.

The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar fourth house, from June 25th to November 6th. (This transit lasts until July 2014).

Saturn transits your solar eighth house this year. This transit that began in October 2012 will last until 2015. This is a period when getting what you want from others can be challenging, as you ultimately are learning to rely on yourself. You are likely to be more sensitive to what seem like outer world pressures that force you to examine some of your deepest desires and attachments. These include your sexual relationships, your finances (especially with regards to debts and shared finances), and your need for control. You may face some difficulties satisfying your libido and/or encountering problems with intimacy. These pressures are "designed" to make you more aware of your desire nature, and what exactly it is you want. Dissatisfaction and frustrations getting what you want, especially with regard to relationships with others and with your resources, often characterize the first part of the transit. You may discover that previous methods of controlling your environment and the people in your life simply are not effective any more. You may not even be aware exactly how you have been employing power and control before this transit. Saturn's presence in this sector of your chart also urges you to organize your finances. On a psychological level, you face some of your fears that are of a compulsive nature—those fears that lead you to believe you need certain things in order to survive. Taxes might be a big issue during this period. Towards the end of this transit, you will have eliminated some deep-seated habits and attachments that have been keeping you back from feeling emotionally free. You emerge healthier and stronger. When we give in to compulsive behaviors, we give up self-control, and guilt undermines our lives. We are not ourselves. By attempting to control others, we give away our own power over ourselves. By the end of this transit, you will feel considerably more emotionally healthy. You will have nixed some of your addictions, and mastered your superstitions. You will feel more powerful because you have given up attempting to control things you cannot or should not control, and you will have gained a feeling of self-mastery instead.

For those born approximately March 30-31, and those with an Ascendant of 9-10 degrees Aries, Pluto squares your Sun in year 2013, and fundamental changes in the way you see yourself, how you treat others, and in the direction your career is headed are in store. How you have handled issues of personal power and the sharing of power with others in personal and professional relationships come to the fore. You are likely to experience events that pull up the necessity to share and trust. This year, events and circumstances are such that you learn about your own personal strength. You may have to deal with willfulness and issues of power and competition this year--in others and in yourself. There are likely to be times when you feel on edge, volatile, or even threatened. There is an inner drama taking place this year, and a feeling that external circumstances are undermining your own feeling of powerfulness. In the process, you may be able to get in touch with your internal motivations. A tendency to want to control your life through some form of manipulation is strong during this influence. Meeting with obstacles in your path, however, can force you into the position of using all of your resources to fight back, and you can discover resources you never knew you had in the process! You may slowly uncover a new direction in your career--one that reflects more of the "true you". You may also experience tangles in your close personal relationships, perhaps more so with males. Watch for jealousies and manipulative behavior. Things will not go in your favor if you resort to tactics to get what you want. If you have been feeling somewhat of a victim in your job, for example, then this will be a year when you feel it more acutely and feel the need to do something about it. You could have problems staying calm, cool, and collected at times. Buried resentments come to the fore and demand to be dealt with. Avoid focusing on regrets or dead-end situations, as the tendency to obsess over things that can't or shouldn't be changed runs very high. Resentments and regrets left unattended can have toxic effects, so it's wise to work on overcoming these rather than letting them spoil your life. By the time this transit ends, you are more equipped than ever to go after exactly what it is that you want in life. Superficial areas of your life will be removed or transformed, and you are freer to express your authentic self.

For all of you in this decanate, Pluto is in your solar tenth house this year. Your ambition is more intense and the need to find deep significance with regards to your social standing or professional life becomes very strong. Some of you might attract negative attention from superiors or from others in your field who are jealous of, threatened by, or finding fault in the work you do. However, any trials and tests that could be stimulated now will push you onto the right path and challenge you to become stronger and more confident in your own abilities. Some of you may be changing jobs or long-term professional goals. Some might continue along the same career path but alter their goals and duties. Others might discover a deep inner need to grow and develop their existing careers or businesses, uncovering ambitions that they never knew they had. Fears of underperforming can come to the fore under this influence, and it's time to find ways to eradicate them.

For those of you born March 26-31, and those with an Aries Ascendant of 5 to 10 degrees, Uranus conjuncts your Sun/Ascendant and is in your solar first house. This will bring a burst of energy and awareness into your life, marking a time of monumental changes to your identity. Freedom of expression is deeply important to you now. You are making breaks from elements from your past that have limited your freedom or that have kept you from expressing your individuality. This is a time when you are more willing to take personal risks. Uranus is the Awakener, and often "awakens" your consciousness to areas of your life that it touches in surprising ways. As such, there may be unexpected events that free you from confining situations or past conditioning patterns. You are more inspired this year, and your personality fairly bubbles with bursts of enthusiasm. Impulsiveness is something to watch out for, however. Your need for freedom can be so strong that you leave cherished things (or people!) behind. Alienating those close to you may occur now if you're not careful. At the very least, people around you are surprised by your more rebellious and risk-taking nature. While you shouldn't resist change now, you should avoid completely impulsive behavior. Changes in the image you project to others, and perhaps your personal style and appearance, take place this year. You might go through a series of personal makeovers. You are breaking free from the expectations of others now. Your behavior tends to be more spontaneous, and perhaps a little rebellious. Freedom of personal expression is immensely important to you now, and if you turn a few heads or raise some eyebrows in the pursuit thereof, you don't particularly worry about it!

The influence of Neptune is similar to last year for those of you born March 27-31 or with an Aries Ascendant of 6-10 degrees. Neptune continues to transit your solar eleventh house, as it has been doing for a number of years, adding some color and imagination to your social life. For some years now, you may have been faced with the need to draw some boundaries with friends and the demands of others. Your loyalty to certain groups or friends may have been misplaced, for example. You have experienced, and will continue to do so, a subtle yearning to belong with a friend or a group who shares your own ideals. This can lead you to attach yourself to unusual, more spiritual, or downright wacky friends...colorful ones at the very least! However, for those born March 21-26 or with an Aries Ascendant of 0-5-1/2 degrees, Neptune is transiting your solar twelfth house, It's a pleasant placement for this mysterious and elusive planet. Dreams are especially rich and involved. You pay more attention to synchronicities, signs, symbols, and omens in your life. You are building your faith in all that is "unseen".

The North Node of the Moon is transiting your solar eighth house all year, and this suggests that some of the greatest joys - and challenges - come through your attachments to others, your own feelings of being empowered, and your ability to share yourself with others.

Eclipses in 2013 fall mostly in your second and eighth houses. Some drama with regards to a spouse's income, or your taxes and investments, may occur on a mundane level. It may be time to settle some of your debts, financial or otherwise. What makes you feel comfortable and secure needs to be balanced with attention to other people's needs and comfort levels. Shuffling around your finances is likely this year. You might find others are supporting you financially, but you need to avoid creating dependencies that will put you back where you started. In October, a Lunar Eclipse in Aries turns your attention back to yourself - your needs, your physical well-being, and so forth. This is a time for taking care of yourself!

Again this year, and especially in May and October-November, you may encounter some challenges between your personal goals and the demands of your career. The urge to expand and pursue your worldly goals is great, but you are also intent on a certain level of freedom to explore life. Of course, in order to further your career, you need to cultivate some self-discipline. This naturally comes at the expense of your personal freedom at times. The demands of career and family can be especially strong in August, when finding a balance is necessary but also very challenging!

The second half of the year is strong for getting in touch with past conditioning that makes you what you are today. Periods when you completely relax and retreat, removing yourself from everyday affairs, will be especially beneficial. You are likely to learn that privacy and more down time are good for your soul. You may be able to gain property or support from family; or you could secure a loan or mortgage that helps you to improve your home life. Connecting intimately with another person boosts your sense of security.  Business should subtly improve this year, and you are likely to be backed by superiors. You may discover resources that you never knew you had. Help seems to be magically there when you need it, and your own awesome strength and faith is always there to draw upon. Imaginative undertakings could boost your income this year. You could be working on a project in solitude or behind the scenes, and when you do come out with it, it could be quite profitable. This year, you are learning that too much emphasis on the importance of material possessions can work against you. You are learning to put more value in the intangibles in life. It's about filling your heart.

From August forward, the challenge is to work on sensitizing yourself to the needs of others and to get over any fears of the demands a partner might make on you. Through partnership, and through cooperation with others, you will more likely achieve the inner balance necessary for you to achieve your goals.

Aries (Born April 11 to 20) - 20 to 30 degrees Aries:



2013 Overview for all Aries. Uranus continues to stir the pot for you in 2013, dear Aries, but especially so for those born March 25 to April 2nd, whose Sun receives the conjunction. This is a time for releasing attachments that are preventing you from moving forward. Watch for rebellious behavior, but do make changes that move you forward, past limitations, and towards a more authentic "you". Saturn has left its opposition to Aries, and this takes some of the direct pressure off your lives. Jupiter has moved into a harmonious relationship with your sign in the first half of the year, and is helping to open the lines of communication in your life. In the second half of 2013, although Jupiter will square your sign, this planet of abundance will nevertheless feed your sense of security and stability, and many Aries will find this transit comforting, particularly given all of the changes that have been taking place in your lives. There will be times when you will need to slow yourself down and choose your battles wisely, particularly in May and October-November. Heavyweight planets are directly affecting the sectors of your chart that rule how the world views you, both professionally and personally. You continue to move away from false paths that no longer serve you well, or transforming them into more suitable ones. Overall, however, you have plenty of opportunity this year to find comfort at home or with family. In fact, this is a year in which the major key to success is learning when it's time to slow down. Impulsiveness, while it's a signature Aries trait, should be tamed somewhat in 2013. Planning more carefully for your future is important, particularly with finances on the leaner side (there may be less support from others, for example). Save as much as possible. Good energy is with you for dealing with debt. Love and romance are unlikely to make headlines for you this year (2014 is more likely to be a year of change in this department), The desire to move to a larger home or to create the illusion of more space by eliminating clutter is strong in the second half of the year. If circumstances allow, this can be a good time to launch new projects or even a business. Many of you would prefer not to travel in 2013. Relationships with siblings and possibly neighbors can be stimulating and even healing, and activities close to home (and on or in the home) are very appealing now.

2013 Details.


Until May, Jupiter continues to transit your solar second house. During this cycle, you are likely to see and enjoy benefits to your earning power and value system. Jupiter in this part of your chart could very well bring a profitable and productive period. You are likely to feel more confident and enthusiastic about your ability to earn a living, and this can help you to attract more income, as long as you are realistic. You might decide to develop your talents during this Jupiter cycle, which in turn boosts your earning power. Your income might increase, and there may be an opportunity to improve your future financial situation. However, you may also be just as inclined to splurge on yourself, opting to plump up your nest or your store of personal possessions in order to feel more secure. Money problems from the past may clear up during this period if you use it appropriately, developing budgets and working out ways to better manage your resources. You may be adding to your possessions, you might receive a large item or gift, or a major purchase or sale might occur now. A significant gift or bonus may come your way. This is a good time to work with financial institutions, go for a raise, or apply for a loan. You may need to curb an inclination to overspend--feeling good could bring you to the stores as you temporarily forget about the future! The positive circumstances listed here won't necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life.

Because Jupiter rules your sector of travel, foreign affairs, and publishing, these may be sources of income for you during this period.

The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar second house, from January 30th to May 12th.

Saturn continues to transit your solar seventh house this year. Saturn motivates us to do "spring cleaning" in the areas of life it touches. In your case, significant one-to-one relationships need to be considered and understood during this transit. This is a time when you need to define, understand, and crystallize your significant relationships with others. If you already have a partner, this is a time when any issues surrounding compromise, flexibility, and the ability to give your heart to your partner will surface. Initial frustration in the early stages of this transit this year may take the form of feeling criticized and "examined" in this area of life. By the end of the transit next year, however, you will have learned much about commitment and compromise. Those of you who are single are likely to feel the initial pressures of Saturn transiting the seventh house as well. A feeling of loneliness is possible in either situation (whether you have/had a significant partnership or not), but instead of an issue of re-committing, the single person will seriously think about commitment in general. If involved in a casual love relationship, when Saturn transits the seventh, a pressure emerges concerning the need for evaluating your commitments. Often this transit corresponds with an urge (or pressure) to make a commitment or a re-commitment. Healthy partnerships can be the outcome of this transit, whether they are new ones or strengthened existing partnerships. Saturn always brings with it a fair measure of reality and objectivity, so that whatever relationships you may have now or want to have will be defined and re-defined. Relationships are seen now as serious matters! Partners are no longer simply for amusement or mirrors of your ego. Responsibilities to partners, the need to compromise, and the realities of the needs of others, become clear. You are forced to begin seeing others as individuals, and to improve the manner in which you relate to and with others. Depending on your age and life circumstances, "significant partnerships" can mean partnerships with loved ones, business partnerships, and even deep friendships. By the end of this transit, quantity in the relationship department will have been replaced with quality, and this process involves time, soul-searching, frustration, and eventual fulfillment.

The influences of Uranus and Neptune are similar to last year. Even though Uranus is in your sign, Aries, it won't be until 2015 or later that Uranus conjuncts your Sun/Ascendant. Uranus continues to help release you from unconscious habit patterns, perhaps stirring up your private life (your private life has certainly become more "colorful" in the last few years), and interjecting some unusual coincidences into your life. This whole process will continue throughout 2013 and beyond, acting to slowly but surely detach you from the past. Neptune continues to transit your solar eleventh house, as it has been doing for a number of years, adding some color and imagination to your social life. For some years now, you may have been faced with the need to draw some boundaries with friends and the demands of others. Your loyalty to certain groups or friends may have been misplaced, for example. You have experienced, and will continue to do so, a subtle yearning to belong with a friend or a group who shares your own ideals. This can lead you to attach yourself to unusual, more spiritual, or downright wacky friends...colorful ones at the very least!

The North Node of the Moon is transiting your solar eighth house until March, and this suggests that some of the greatest joys - and challenges - come through your attachments to others, your own feelings of being empowered, and your ability to share yourself with others. From March forward, the challenge is to work on sensitizing yourself to the needs of others and to get over any fears of the demands a partner might make on you. Through partnership, and through cooperation with others, you will more likely achieve the inner balance necessary for you to achieve your goals.

Eclipses in 2013 fall mostly in your second and eighth houses and first and seventh houses. Some drama with regards to a spouse's income, or your taxes and investments, may occur on a mundane level. It may be time to settle some of your debts, financial or otherwise. What makes you feel comfortable and secure needs to be balanced with attention to other people's needs and comfort levels. Shuffling around your finances is likely this year. You might find others are supporting you financially, but you need to avoid creating dependencies that will put you back where you started. In October, a Lunar Eclipse in Aries turns your attention back to yourself - your needs, your physical well-being, and so forth. This is a time for taking care of yourself! Even so, there is a fine balance to achieve between tending to the needs of a partner and to yourself.

Especially in May and October-November, there can be some side-tracking due to a basic yearning for something more than just mundane existence. It's not a bad thing, but the tense connection suggests that this yearning can get in the way of more mundane concerns.

In the second half of the year, the lines of communication open up between you and a special someone. Sharing daily events and goings-on with one another gives you much pleasure. This can also suggest a real learning experience with someone with whom you can bounce ideas off and come to a better understanding of how you define yourself. Learning about the world around you through the eyes of a special person--or through other one-to-one relationships, such as clients--is a pleasing theme in 2013. Friendships can be especially supportive this year. A friend could be integral in achieving your goals, and partnering with a friend in some tangible way can be part of the picture this year. Some of you may take a friendship into unexplored romantic territory, or meet a significant person through a friend or group association.
