Aries was born to be competitive. They love the sound and feel of winning. That includes every venture they become involved in during their lifetime.
The thrill and then the winning of the game is what inspires the Aries. They think of life as a constant competition and they want to win.
The drama of the fight to win is what keeps this fire sign in the running. All of life – from the kitchen to the bedroom – there is always and forever a game to win as far as Aries is concerned.
Never shy, Aries have leadership skills that should be cultivated from birth. Being first is the lifeblood of Aries. It is what makes this fire sign run.

The new moon on Sunday makes this a good week for new starts. The best day for such activity will be Friday, when the moon will make good aspects to Uranus, the sun and Mars, or Sunday before 7 p.m. At the time of the new moon there is positive energy that supports any new project that you could imagine. So if you are hoping for a successful venture in the near future, take advantage of the timing and start on Friday or Sunday.
Aries (March 21 to April 20) Since you are an extremely self-sufficient soul and willing to work hard if you have a new adventure planned, that is good. The time has arrived. Waiting any longer won’t bring more success, it will merely put you over the edge when it comes to the golden outcome you are looking forward to and really need.
Taurus (April 21 to May 20) Dreaming big dreams is just what you need now, but you also have to put in the hard work. Without the necessary structure and work, your dream will never get off the ground. So concentrate on one thing at a time right now. If you can carry that idea out, you will get what you want.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20) Now that you are thinking of a serious change in direction put some realism into it. The real part of any change is just how will it come about. First, you need to let go of the past and then meet new and charming people. Get out and about now and make yourself known in a new arena. A new love is due.
Cancer (June 21 to July 20) It is time to let go of past dreams and let new ones take shape. Sometimes we hold on to yesterday, not knowing the future is bright with new adventures. That is where you are now on the edge of a really good and exciting time. So take your leap and be happy with the new people coming into your life.
Leo (July 21 to Aug. 20) The adventures of the past are nothing compared to what is in store for you. You merely need to make a few quick decisions and change some of your deadbeat goals. Once that is complete, you will be off and running to new success. The planet Uranus can take you off and spin you into a whole new world of glamour.
Virgo (Aug. 21 to Sept. 20) Keep yourself busy by paying close attention to events surrounding your work environment. Otherwise life will happen and you will be on the outside. This means this is no time to slack off at work. Since you love work, it should be easy to be aware. A new face could be looking at you with good ideas.
Libra (Sept. 21 to Oct. 20) A situation that has been troubling you will soon clear up and you will like the final result. So don’t waste time thinking negative thoughts. You will win. It is time to let go of the fears and be aware of your own talents. A healing has taken place and all is well on your side of the challenge.
Scorpio (Oct. 21 to Nov. 20) In your new adventure pay attention to every detail. You never want to be caught again without all the facts. Accept as much responsibility as possible in your latest game and follow through down to the last minute. To do less will create situations you have already been through and didn’t like.
Sagittarius (Nov. 21 to Dec. 20) It is time to bring the lessons of the past into your life. We all have vivid imaginations and work hard at making our dreams come true. We sometimes get involved in lessons that are hard to learn, but remember, once learned they never leave. So take some time and study your past. Then it won’t repeat.
Capricorn (Dec. 21 to Jan. 20) In your climb to your idea of success you recently learned a tough lesson – the lesson of slowing yourself down. It is a super challenge for driven people to slow down, but for you it must be done. Once learned, your success will be greater than imagined by anyone.
Aquarius (Jan. 21 to Feb. 20) When it comes to love life, you are not easy to win over. But once in a while you can let your guard down and give love a try. This could be a good time. Otherwise, stay with your success goals and keep working on your own goals. There is a chance for a nice relationship. Make no promises, but give it a try.
Pisces (Feb. 21 to March 20) With Neptune in Pisces it would be wise to stay away from alcohol and drugs, otherwise, you could end up with a problem. Instead, use your energy as a creative outlet. This way your imagination can take you to the success you have always wanted but never thought you would have.
