“My passions were all gathered together like fingers that made a fist. Drive is considered aggression today; I knew it then as purpose.” Bette Davis

Mars, the planet of drive and self-assertion, enters its own home turf of Aries today (12:51 am EDT), where it will stay until May 11th. Mars in its own sign tends to be very impulsive, yet also courageous and daring. Its placement here helps to fuel our desires, including our sexual desires, which Mars also governs. With Mars in adventurous Aries, the sign of identity and self-discovery, we may feel the urge to “act quickly” on our dreams.

The Moon also enters Aries today (7:17 am EDT) in preparation for its New Moon on Sunday (10:33 am EDT). All told, when it does, we will have a total of six of the celestial bodies in “steroidal” Aries: the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Uranus. The Moon also conjuncts freedom-loving Uranus (9:46 am EDT) and squares intense, controlling Pluto (10:26 pm EDT). Also, Mars will be conjuncting high-voltage Uranus on Sunday.

Additionally, love maven Venus is forming a fortuitous, 60-degree aspect to transforming Pluto today. This aspect can magnetically boost our “power of attraction.” Venus-Pluto can also deepen our relationships and heighten our passions.

Too, Venus-Pluto aspects are often regarded as times when we may “meet our soulmates.” This is because in karmic astrology, Pluto is linked with our “past lives” and Venus, of course, rules love. Retrograde Mercury (which we also have now) has also been known to put “people from our past,” back into our orbit.
