Aries May Vedic Astrology Forecast

Mars has been hard at work in Capricorn the last six weeks! Once he moves into Aquarius on May 4, you will be ready to have some fun! Aquarius is an air sign and therefore this sign will provide Mars with a more socially oriented influence through June 18.


Social networking, achieving goals and working toward humanitarian achievements will also factor into May and part of June. Mars is receiving some influence from innovative Rahu during this time. This influence may signal that is time reinvent the wheel! Rahu can give great technical and creative skills to Mars at this time.


Although keep in mind hard-working Saturn in Capricorn controls all planets passing through Aquarius, so try to balance out the hard work with some fun in life!


May 9-12 can bring some tension in communications since Mars and Mercury will be squaring off at this time. This is definitely a time to count to ten when speaking with best friends or younger siblings since Mercury is responsible for them as well as communication. You may also want to be extra aware of your health around this time since health and wellness is also ruled by Mercury as your sixth house lord.

To close out the month, fiery Mars and Sun square off. The tension from this square is released through drive to succeed and overcoming potential creative obstacles or issues with authority figures. Beware of working too hard to blast through potential obstacles.

Venus is going retrograde in your second house on May 12, so you may be rethinking your long-term assets and savings goals during the retrograde phase that goes through June 25.  Once Venus goes direct on June 25 is the best time to put your new plans in to place. But please keep it real since a square to Venus from Neptune for most of May has the potential to create a grand illusion around financial matters.
