There’s a calmness in the air, Aries, and you feel at peace. Not everything in your life is perfect, but the fighter—and the rebel—in you is okay with that. Thanks to lucid Saturn (in a compassionate sign), you know that it’s pointless to revolt against the pitfalls that come your way. As for the good things, welcome them with open arms.

Your Aries-season read of the month, brought to you by Simon & Schuster Canada: In Sonya Singh’s Sari, Not Sari, Manny Dogra is confident, determined and passionate. Sound familiar, Aries? Like you, Manny is a go-getter—she seems to have it all, with her successful business and handsome fiancé, but following the loss of her parents, she feels disconnected from her Indian heritage. Until a new client, Sammy, offers her a crash course on Indian culture via a family wedding—and she finds herself enlightened in more ways than one.

“Love yourself and the rest will follow.” If you feel like adopting a motto this spring, I strongly recommend this one. Not only will it give you wings but it will also give your best friends and confidants a break from the ego-boosting sessions they’ve been giving you. It’s a win-win for everyone—especially you!

You’re impatient, frustrated and maybe even exasperated, so it’s no wonder you’re tempted to rush things. But that would be a mistake. Believe it or not, everything happens at the right pace to prevent you from making a hasty decision in the grip of emotion. Yes, life is slow sometimes, but that’s a good thing!

(June 21 – July 22)

Three planets visiting a friendly sign means your deepest emotional needs will be fulfilled, making you able to forgive the small mistakes (indiscretion, oversight or lack of sensitivity) of a loved one. But absolution for the biggest sins (infidelity, lying or betrayal) should wait!

(July 23 – August 22)

You might feel a little disconnected from your emotions this month. Maybe you’ve been working too hard, neglecting your surroundings or focusing too much on a project. One thing is certain: It’s time to reconnect with yourself. Otherwise, you risk feeling depressed.

(August 23 – September 22)

Dear lover of stability: I’m really into the influence of Uranus in your sign right now. This unpredictable planet gives you flashes of genius and brings necessary changes into your life. Do not resist them—in turning away, you would only create unnecessary crises.

(September 23 – October 22)

If you find yourself wanting to make your home more beautiful, seize the moment! There’s no need to completely overhaul your decor; simply refreshing a room or a neglected corner will do you a world of good. Make the most of your renewed vitality and do something to instigate some change.

(October 23 – November 21)

There is magic, romance and sensuality in the air thanks to Venus (planet of love and harmony) being allied with Neptune (planet of imagination and receptiveness) until May. Ready to give your heart away? An encounter with your soulmate is possible. Already in love? Surprise your plus-one with a special getaway.

(November 22 – December 21)

If I were you, I’d take a deep breath to get some oxygen flowing to my body and mind and then put my ideas (back) in order. Having to deal with conflicting emotions isn’t like you. If you take a step back from a tricky decision or a worry that’s troubling you, the solution will appear—I promise.

(December 22 – January 19)

Finally, a bit of calm. The last two months have been super busy and you’ve expended an awful lot of energy. Fortunately, the whirlwind has been gratifying, but it’s the reason you need a break. Take my advice, though: Don’t rest on your laurels for too long.

(January 20 – February 18)

Last call! You have until the 15th of the month to steer your project (professional, humanitarian, real estate or romantic) to a safe harbour. After that, it’s procrastination, delays, annoyances and a lack of flexibility ahead. There’s nothing insurmountable in all this, but why tempt the devil?

(February 19 – March 20)

Is your delicate heart still too afraid to open up, scared it might beat too strongly, be exposed to the unexpected and get hurt? Venus in your sign is watching over you and wants you to chase away any thoughts that might make you sidestep what could be a wonderful adventure.
