Here’s a quick look at the various planets that are transiting or about to transit through the sign of Aries. All the planets are always travelling – some slowly, some quite speedily- through the signs.. So this is nothing unusual. Because planets are in fact orbiting around the Sun, from our visual point of view, where ever the Sun tends to go, we see most of the inner planets going too. So when the Sun enters the Sign of Aries, we can expect that either in front or later, the others – Mars, Mercury, Venus – will follow. It so happens, that Uranus is already transiting through Aries..

As the planets transit through Aries, they continue to form aspects with other planets which are in other parts of the sky, and also with one another. It’s like a bunch of influential people travelling together on a tour bus around the country – lot of wheeling and dealing and conversations between them, but also once in a while each of them is going to make calls or contact with their networks outside – and sometimes they hear good things, and other times they get awkward phone calls and have to still deal with issues elsewhere.
Dates of when planets enter and leave Aries
Mars entered Aries on 12th March, and will leave by 20th April (~5 weeks stay).
Sun enters Aries on 20th March and will leave by 20th April (1 month stay).
Venus enters Aries on 22nd March, and will leave by 14th April (3 weeks stay).
Mercury enters Aries on 14th April, and will leave on 2nd May. (2 weeks stay).
I’ve tabled the transits of these planets and grouped them by the planet that’s passing through Aries, and the interactions (aspects) it’s making with others. In the 2nd table, I show the same interactions, but in date order..
I’ve given this much importance to Aries – because it’s the first sign of the zodiac, and heralds new initiatives, and also we are just coming into the Time of Aries (as the Sun starts to pass through Aries …for a month). If time permits, I hope to do the same every month, for each of the signs..(Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, and so on..)
Do check THIS specific blog, as I will visit it regularly and be adding more information on each major aspect..(rather than do new posts).
