The sun moves into Aries on Mar. 20, 2019 and will bring with it two distinct energetic forces: A full moon in Libra, and the start of Aries season. Knowing how to harness these forces is key to figuring out
what Aries season means for your love life, so Bustle went straight to the experts to find out what each sign has in store for them this season. First, Aries are known for their fiery, bold, take-charge attitudes. Symbolized by the ram, Aries' gifts typically lie in their leadership, determination and creative motivation, which is something all of us can channel this season, should we so choose. Secondly, the sun moving into Aries marks the beginning of the zodiac calendar and the coming of spring.
"This corresponds to fresh starts, new beginnings, a clean slate, a full tank, and good vitality overall," astrologer Cindy Mckean tells Bustle. Think of it like Astrological New Year's, in other words. So if the zodiac derailed your Jan. 1 romantic resolutions, this is the perfect time to give them another go — hopefully with a little more sunlight to energize you.
Spring Equinox marks the beginning of a new cycle, and many of us will feel a blossoming of sorts, feeling the desire to get out of the house and socialize," Shakirah Tabourn, astrologer and founder of NFLUX Mag, tells Bustle. "This season of change prompts us to buy new clothes to suit the warmer weather, and the mere act of shedding some layers could entice us to be flirtier and more fun than the winter allowed."
So follow your friskier instincts as the weather warms up and dive into your Aries season romance with these tips.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Aries are, of course, in prime position to take advantage of the giant astrological reset button this Aries season brings. "Though you have a tendency to jump into things head first, your love life is set to take off closer to the end of spring if you're single," Mckean warns. "If you're in a relationship, enjoy yourself but avoid rash decisions."
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Taurus definitely has good vibes coming their way this Aries season, but it may not necessarily show up in the romance department in any of the traditional ways. "Love is in the air for Taurus this spring, but not exactly the kind of love you think," Mckean explains. "This is a time of buoyancy and happiness where you'll have a spring in your step and feel optimistic. With this, it is a positive welcome for financial satisfaction, appreciation, and peace."
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Gemini should get ready for Aries season to start with a bang, too. "Your love life will bring variety, excitement, and fun whether you're single or in a relationship," according to Mckean. "You're going to be popular and in demand. Your work life looks good, too, as does your social life." Literally, what could go wrong.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Cancer will have to tread a bit more thoughtfully this season. "The prime focus for you in Aries season is balance, which you're good at," Mckean notes. "This is a good time to get prepared for the enjoying yourself. You will be able to avoid emotional upsets through avoiding intense situations."
Looking to the future, she adds, "Come Taurus season (April 20 - May 20) you'll be as snug as a bug in a rug if you're in a relationship. If you're single, cherish this time for the positive anticipation that comes before an exciting period."
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Leos may want to book some getaways this Aries season: according to astrologer Lisa Stardust, that's where they'll find romantic energy.
"A nice weekend trip with your beau or friends will elevate your romantic nature," she tells Bustle. "Enjoy your freedom and mingle with exciting people."
Virgo (August 23 - September 23)
Virgo may want to err on the side of caution and be gentle with themselves this Aries season, according to Stardust.
"You’re a little more clingy than normal right now over your relationship, or very committed to finding something fresh to kick off spring," she says. "Find people who encourage your individuality, not those who minimize your awesomeness, to connect with."
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Aries season will throw focus directly onto Libra's relationships, which means this period could be a little intense for them.
"The Libra Full Moon that kicks off Aries season offers an opportunity for Libra to share their romantic feelings — the good and the bad," says Tabourn. "That can be a chaotic week, but you'll appreciate that the swell of emotion leads to some clarity around your relationship dynamics."
Since Libra is poised to be so relationship-oriented during this time, they may find themselves in the spirit of giving, emotionally-speaking, this season. "Be forewarned," Stardust adds, "Aries season may add a little codependency to your overall love vibe."
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
For Scorpios, this season is the one time meeting someone at the gym may actually work out, according to Stardust
"You may find a hot new romance at the gym and want to head out to local places to celebrate. This will connect you to more eligible singletons," she says. "If attached, be prepared to work hard to make your relationship soar to new heights."
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
The world is a Sagittarian's oyster this Aries season, especially romantically speaking. "They can attract romance by making recreation a priority, doing what they love, and just by having a really good time," Los Angeles-based astrologer Joshua MacGuire tells Bustle.
"The Aries New Moon on April 5th offers a new beginning on how they approach their sexuality and romantic lives," Tabourn adds. "If they’re looking for some fun or a new partner, that weekend is a great time to go out and mingle. Sagittarius may find their sex life revving up even more when Venus enters Aries in mid-April, giving them more opportunities to flirt and socialize."
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Capricorns are not exactly on the ~fun and flirty~ path this Aries season. Rather, they're probably facing some complex romantic emotions, according to MacGuire.
"Aries season is likely to bring a lot of surprises for Capricorn, as unpredictable Uranus transits their solar house of true love," he explains. "With the sun in Aries shining through their emotional 4th House, the more self-care they give themselves, the more emotional security they'll have to roll with the punches and experience love beyond their wildest dreams — but they'll have to change and likely let some stuff go."
Aquarius (January 20 - February 19)
The more outgoing Aquarius is this season, the more romantic dividends they will yield, according to MacGuire:
With Venus in their sign at the start of Aries season, Aquarians can expect to be more popular and better looking than ever. They can attract lots of love during Aries season with Venus in their sign. With the Aries sun shining through their solar 3rd House, they'll shine and attract love when bouncing around town, running errands, and hanging out in their local environment. If they want love, they should be as social and talkative as possible!
Pisces (February 20 - March 20)
This Aries season, the sun will be passing through Pisces 2nd House of self-worth. That means it's a perfect time to revaluate what you bring to the table, Pisces.
"The more they speak up and express themselves, the more they'll shine to attract love this Aries season," MacGuire says.
"With powerhouse planets Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, opposing Pisces true love sector, they may attract people who are going through challenges," he adds. "So they'll have to understand if they're not getting as much attention as they'd like."
No matter your sign, this is a great time to focus on getting all you can out of self-renewal, even if Aries season doesn't bode amazingly well for your romantic prospects. But if you are feeling flirty, then grab your flyest outfit and get out there!
