Aries Sun & Rising — Monthly Horoscope & Sign Description

Aries Monthly Horoscope for July 2020


Aries (March 20-April 19) — Your choices matter, and so does your basis for making them. Events this month offer a series of leadership challenges that will help guide you to the place you will want to be for the next few years. Like many things in the world, you’re making the transition from executive authority to new methods of social organization. This is also called informal leadership, though that whole concept must evolve into something more participatory. There’s an issue in that relatively few people care what happens to everyone else. You might, though who among your friends is concerned enough to devote themselves to gathering knowledge, building consensus and focusing action? We can expect a long transition, though with little pockets of successful experimentation here and there. In the long run, here is what I would propose: your experiences as a parent, boss, manager, or any form of elected leader will provide a substantial sampling of where human nature is, and where it needs to be. Meanwhile, surround yourself with people who know how to cooperate. Set that as a standard for who gets to enter your life in an intimate or committed way. The nature of both the intimacy and the commitment must be a certain kind of spiritual bond where you recognize having the same underlying purpose and can work from there. What exists on the more surface levels is of little meaning compared to the true common ground you share — the very thing that holds you up, and a spirit of generosity and goodwill toward all living creatures.

Sign Description for Aries

(March 20-April 19) — Self-assertive, sometimes bold, sometimes cloaking deep insecurity with that boldness, Aries is always up for an adventure.


Your sign is the key that starts the engine of the universe, and that means you have extra motivation, even in the face of intimidating situations. Something in you just rises to the occasion and you make your presence known. Your friends count on you for this, though you often need their support and do a lot better as an initiator when you have a posse around you.

There’s something truly childlike about Aries, and its natives can accomplish great things because they don’t stop to think about how whatever they’re attempting is supposedly impossible. You are constantly discovering new depths of your inner nature, surprised time and again that your interior world is such a dominant part of your personality. Aries is associated with the planet Mars.

Learn about the placement of your Mars sign and you will learn more about your personality. Mars represents raw, unrefined energy, which can be expressed many ways. Your job is to do the refining, and to learn some political skills so that you can get along with people even as you push them to do what you believe needs to be done. That said, you want relationship situations that are balanced and authentic, even though it can be hard to find people who aren’t intimidated by you.

You have desire, you have determination, you benefit the most from discipline and learning to be happy with gradual progress, and this includes getting to know potential friends and lovers. Remember, you don’t always have to be first and best, and intimate situations are the place to turn off your competitive nature.

You can simply be you. Aries is a fire sign, and because it’s one of the signs that starts a season, it’s also considered a cardinal sign. It’s represented by the Ram, which is a very cool kind of full-strength sheep.

Speaking of full-strength, that’s what your astrology is these days. Of all the signs, Aries is the one right now that’s getting energized, electrified and spontaneously transformed. To do this well, you have to stay grounded and take care of yourself. We’re counting on you to lead the way into the future. That’s the true nature of Aries — and it’s blazing out right now.
