Aries (March 20-April 19) — What is spiritual? Let’s start with going beyond appearances. We can add a commitment to honesty, and also respect. Being trustworthy is at the essence of spiritual if anything is, and so too is learning how to trust. Let’s keep honesty, respect and trust in mind as we address the first topic: going beyond appearances. The world we see with our senses is often a projection screen. This is not always true, but it’s often true, that we see the contents of our mind rather than the nature of what we think we are perceiving. It would be impossible to notice the difference if not for some shift in perspective, or some experience of the veil lifting and the underlying realty glimpsed and acknowledged. For you, that’s an important dimension of what develops the next few weeks. You may experience it in ways that you can describe and also in ways impossible to describe or quantify. As this happens, there is something brewing on the mental level as well, described by Mercury retrograde in your 3rd place (house, solar house, whole sign house, Gemini). This is about rethinking, reviewing and re-evaluating what is immediately present for you, close to you, or what happened very recently. Events in Sagittarius for you describe the wide, the distant and the deep. Events in Gemini bring these same things right down to the ground, right into your immediate world. The greater truth can find a home in your immediate apprehension and observation of the world and the people around you. What if you lived as if all those high-minded ideals were actually true? How would you make different decisions? How would you speak to people? What would you say to them, ask them about, or offer them?

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for May 2021 | Go To All Signs

Aries (March 20-April 19) — The hangups of your family are not necessarily your hangups. Their struggles are not your struggles. Their pain is not your pain. Yet these statements defy a century of psychological theory, study and practice. They defy the experience of nearly every person, who drags the baggage of their early upbringing with them even unto old age. Experience would say that to a profound degree, we are products of our early upbringing, in the process taking on all that we are subjected to as children. Sometimes people outgrow these influences, and emerge at last themselves. Sometimes people go through a conscious healing process, and let go of all that is not theirs. If we could see behind the scenes in some absolute or quantitative sense, very little of what belongs to our ancestors is actually our karmic property. Yet so often, this is not the effect; we live as if it is. What makes the difference? What provokes people to actually heal, grow, and resolve the past? I would propose that it’s about having something to live for that is all your own. ‘Something’ could be many things, but ultimately what you discover is your purpose and your desire. There is a clue this month in examining where you feel the most blocked. The challenge is the sensation of the block being good for you, or somehow a sign of integrity, even though you have a whole other set of ideas about it at the same time. By this, I mean something like the conflict between desire and restraint, but where restraint usually wins because it’s somehow ‘the right thing to do’. But is it really? Is what you want actually wrong? What is the difference between what you want and who you are? You are not wrong.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for April 2021 | Go To All Signs
by Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries (March 20-April 19) — Events this month have the ability to lift you over obstacles that may have interfered with your progress for years, though you might feel like the same quality has the potential to throw you into chaos. The whole world is set at hair-trigger at the moment, and there seems to be little flexibility available. Any change to the known order sends shockwaves across the world, unless of course that change is instigated by fear (and then people think it’s a good thing). You need to be both flexible and courageous, and these days that is asking a lot. One thing I suggest you be mindful of, given that Chiron is in your birth sign or rising sign, is the sense of being a ‘broken person’. A planet related to healing can impart the sensation of needing to be healed, though this calls for a gentle approach, and one that’s not in any way judgmental. Yet the awareness factor of Chiron has a way of propelling movement. If you have been feeling stuck, that can be unsettling, even unnerving. Another dichotomy that you may be experiencing is the pressure others are exerting on you to be like them, while the presence of Chiron and Eris in your sign are insisting that you be like yourself and yourself alone. This is more tension than most people can stand. That’s part of the game: rather than doing what is necessary for oneself, pushing others into conforming and doing the wrong thing for themselves. There are many reasons society got to this place, but there is only one reason to get out: you are who you are and you are nobody else. No matter what anyone may say, you are responsible for your choices.

Aries

Aries (March 20-April 19) — Before the Sun enters your sign later this month, you have an opportunity to experience the beauty of your inner world. Not everyone knows this exists. At the moment, the only world most people experience is the internet and anything connected to it. Yes, there are a few people in our society who remember forests, but not most. Contact with nature would bring you closer to yourself. An ocean or large body of water comes to mind, though the natural world in any form will do. The feeling you experience with nobody else around, coming face to face with beauty, is a glimpse of your personal and private world. The longer you stay, the better, though you take your inner existence with you everywhere you go. Another approach is to consider food, which is one of the most intimate things about a person. Give yourself frequent experiences of eating exactly what you want, in a setting where you don’t need to justify yourself nor have your choices be subject to discussion. You would be amazed how much approval-seeking surrounds a matter that should be distinctly one’s own business. You may notice a particularly strong emotional charge around food, and all that it’s associated with. You are in an especially good time to adopt the maxim, “Let food be thy medicine.” On March 20, the Sun enters Aries, which is a refreshing moment for you and for the world. Unlike many people, you have considerable freedom of movement, and social options. But those will be limited by fear, and fear is fed by ignorance. You have a responsibility to know your personal truth, which is a matter of self-understanding and making a true effort to understand the facts of the world around you.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for February 2021
by Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries

Aries (March 20-April 19) — You are in one of the most financially ambitious phases of your life, though money is likely to take care of itself if you remain true to yourself. That’s not easy in a world that routinely expects people to violate their core values just to make a little money. By this I mean actually encouraging what is genuinely wrong. This works fine for people with no ethics, who do not suffer the psychological consequences. Happily, you do not qualify, so that means you face the quest of what it means to do the right thing, for your peace of mind. This does not just happen in the workplace. The new burst of Aquarius energy is leading people to think they can get others to conform with their every whim. The challenge you face is about standing out. Borrowing from the astrology to illustrate: all that Aquarius in your 11th house (groups, organizations, your immediate society) is blaring with the message that we all must do the same thing. However, Chiron in your birth sign, among other factors, is saying that you must stand up, stand out and be yourself. Listen to how terrifying people describe this as being — and it’s all a head trip. Or better said, it’s not fear of others but rather fear of oneself. Chiron will push you to never have that be something that controls your life, and this month you have much help from Mercury retrograde in Aquarius. Nothing says ‘independence of thought and action’ like Mercury — a vitally important planet to your sign Aries. Be the person you actually are, in the face of any and all pressure to deny yourself. This may seem to take courage. Really, it bestows courage.


Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope #260 for January 19, 2021 by Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries

Aries (March 20-April 19) — It will now become apparent how much your life has changed over the past year, in ways that have opened up many new possibilities for you. Yes, the world is presenting every possible argument to the contrary. Opportunities seem to be drying up. Yet you possess determination and excitement about your existence that few are daring enough to acknowledge much less express. Your secret to success will be engaging with people in person: actual social existence, to the greatest degree possible. Get among your neighbors, your colleagues, your friends, and your community. There, you will find other people who are not afraid to do so, which means not frightened of other humans. Those are your people. Take this opportunity now to establish new friendships, new social patterns, new hangouts and new ways of conducting business. Be a pioneer. A new world will arise out of the ruins of the old, and you have the moxie to be one of its founders — and your astrology reveals that many doors will be wide open to you.


Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope #259 for January 11, 2021
by Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries

Aries (March 20-April 19) — You may be feeling driven and determined, though it would be unwise to take any financial risks for the next few weeks. You probably don’t need to take any at all, though you’re in a good position to increase your income — through work, and trying some new ideas. That’s the place to experiment, rather than laying a lot of cash on the line. Investing in your mind is a much better way to invest in your goals. Over the next few weeks, you may have an idea so bright and so bold that you miss it, or it blinds you for a moment. This is not the kind of thing to act upon casually. It’s something to speak about only with trusted people, who only have your best interests at heart. Mostly, it’s something to develop for a while, with some experiments, keeping track in your lab notebook. Do not abandon the ideas you have at this time in your life; that is too easy in our desperately distracted world. Every moment of focus is a triple word score.


Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope #258 for January 7, 2021
by Eric Francis Coppolino

Aries

Aries (March 20-April 19) — When you take care of your basic needs, you will get a positive result. It may not be the one you were expecting, and you may find that your priorities are shifting radically due to events that seem to be outside of your control. It is, however, crucial that you stay true to yourself despite much pressure to do and think what others say. Chiron in your sign is calling on you to remember who you are, and to be who you are whatever others might say, or what example they might set. One theme of the world right now is an almost unbearable pressure to conform with consensus reality. This is not your style, though it’s difficult for most people to stay alert and strong enough to resist complying, especially if they are afraid or confused. Therefore, seek to understand your fear, and not be its slave. And remember that you are a whole being. Everything comes back to that.

Aries

Aries (March 20-April 19) — Here is a proposal: your spiritual path is to allow nobody to define who you are or what you believe. Most would agree that is a worthy goal. What’s difficult is knowing when it’s happening, and then being able to stand up to the pressure to conform. These are equally challenging. You may only know the situation if you make a choice to do what you want, or to have your own understanding, and assert yourself a little. Then, the resistance you encounter will give you a clue what pressure you were under. So this is what you might think of as a real-time experiment in self-actualization. Chiron is now at full-strength in your birth sign, and will drive you to grow, to become, to explore your consciousness, and to stand out in any way that you need to. This is the nature of the healing crisis (really, the critical mass point) based on Chiron in Aries. It’s possible to experience this transit as being singled out, as not fitting in, or not fitting into your own skin or consciousness. This is the challenge. It’s not really coming from outside of yourself, though the world is very much your playground when it comes to not just figuring out who you are, but fully embodying your personal reality. One thing I suggest is you take it slowly. Do not rush the process, or think you know the outcome. Chiron rewards slow, meticulous effort. Chiron works well in the presence of documentation, which serves as a guardrail against denial. And there is one other thing, that is most often forgotten: the presence of a teacher, and also of serving as a mentor to at least one person who seeks you out.
