An increase of activity, impulsivity, striving, and energetic action. This Moon favours activities which demand courage, decisiveness, swiftness and initiative, but anything which requires patience, diligence and diplomacy is more difficult now. The Moon in Aries generally favors actions that yield immediate results, self-assertion and taking on challenges. It is a good time for athletics, starting new projects and for solving problems by brainstorming.
Now is a good time for all kinds of communication and interaction with others as you can explain your intentions and opinions much clearer than usual. It is a good time to examine your own goals, what do you need to attain them and who could possibly help, with you attaining them. It is a good time for buying and selling also, because as your mind is in tune with your solar energy you will to seize the opportunities easier.
You need to proceed with some caution now as you will have a great amount of enthusiasm and energy but are liable to make some bad decisions as you are too quick to act. Make sure to stand back and plan your actions. Avoid being too impulsive or you may get burned. Taking risks at this time could lead to some accidents so avoid overly dangerous activities or trying too hard and over stretching your limitations. Your ego energies are running high and this time could test your own ego flaws and where you lack foresight and consideration for others. If you are finding this time troubling, then it is good to look at how badly are your actions affecting others.
Later in week you may be acting very egotistically, and this could offend other people, you are also more sensitive to being offended yourself. You have a lot of energy for mental effort but may get easily discouraged if things do not go your way. It’s best to put as much effort in as possible and try not to get too irritated or frustrated just keep going. Avoid picking fights with people or reacting to others if they are trying to provoke you, they are just trying to throw you off your high horse. If you are accident prone be careful of traveling, handling machinery or any activity involving your hands or feet.
