As a dreamy, watery Pisces season comes to a close, a confident and fiery Aries season begins. Aries is all about directness and courage, so this will be a season of acting passionately and decisively.
"When the Sun is in Aries, we may feel more forceful, aggressive, sexual, driven, and playful," Dossé-Via, founder of astrology platform and app KnowTheZodiac, tells POPSUGAR. She says that while this is a time when people might lose their patience a bit faster, it also means we'll be more willing to let go of grudges. Here's what this Aries season has in store for your zodiac sign, according to Dossé-Via.
When Is Aries Season?
Aries season begins on 21 March and lasts until April 19. As the first sign in the zodiac calendar, Aries is all about youthfulness and new beginnings. "Aries season is the season of starting fresh with the hopeful enthusiasm of a child," Dossé-Via says. It also marks the beginning of spring in the Northern Hemisphere, which "encourages us to bloom after a period of decay."
Aries (20 March-19 April)
It's your season, Aries — and it's going to get weird. This is because Mars, your planetary ruler, will be in Aquarius for your birthday this year. Aquarians are all about independence and marching to the beat of their own drum, so this transit will encourage you to get unconventional. "Focus on doing what brings you joy, no matter how 'out there' it may seem to others," Dossé-Via says.
It's also a time to focus on rebirth and growth. "With Chiron, the asteroid that represents our inner wounds, also in Aries until 2026, you're being invited to be radically honest with yourself about what you've outgrown and also be honest about the new beginning you're ready to embark on," Dossé-Via says.
Taurus (20 April-20 May)
For you, Taurus, Aries season is all about not taking life too seriously. Dossé-Via says that Aries season tends to bring out the spirituality in a Taurus, but that this soul-searching doesn't have to happen in an intense way. "Laughing and playing more can be wonderful ways to reconnect with oneself, [especially] since Uranus, the planet of surprise, is currently in Taurus," Dossé-Via says.
This season, you can expect plenty of opportunities for spontaneity and carefree fun. It will also be a time for relief. "Tauruses can heal by deciding to not take life, or themselves, too seriously," Dossé-Via says.
Gemini (21 May-20 June)
Aries season looks great on you, Gemini. With the Sun's position activating their social side, "Geminis will feel more confident and alluring during the Aries season," Dossé-Via says. During this time, it's likely you'll feel more social and even make some new friends. The concentrated directness and confidence of Aries will complement your social and intellectual interests this season.
Cancer (21 June-22 July)
This Aries season is all about your work, Cancer. As a sensitive and intuitive water sign, you may not always be the most assertive — but Aries season is here to encourage you to speak up for yourself. "Aries season emboldens Cancers and reminds them that 'closed mouths don't get fed,' Dossé-Via says.
If you feel like you've been playing it too safe at work, Dossé-Via encourages you to "ask directly for what you want and act as if it's already yours." You got this!
Leo (23 July-22 Aug.)
This is a season of dreaming big, Leo. Specifically, Aries season will be activating your sector of travel and long journeys, so you might catch yourself daydreaming about catching a plane to a new location. A lot will feel possible this season, but remember to pace yourself. "Leo may want to do it all during this season, but they don't have to," Dossé-Via says. "If they try, they may end up getting burnt out or feeling restless."
Virgo (23 Aug.-22 Sept.)
Cha-ching, Virgo! Not only is Aries season making you more confident and ready to take up the spotlight, it's also going to revolve around money-related matters. "This is a great time for Virgo to make power moves and negotiate long-term contracts at work or in their financial collaborations," Dossé-Via says.
Libra (23 Sept.-22 Oct)
Love might be in the air, Libra! Your partnership sector is activated during Aries season, so if you aren't sure if your crush likes you back or have been thinking about asking someone out, now is the time. Dossé-Via encourages you to channel bold Aries this season and take the lead in love-related matters. "The more bold Libra becomes this season, the better," she says. "Ask, and you shall receive!"
Scorpio (23 Oct.-21 Nov.)
Aries season is all about self-improvement, Scorpio. This is the perfect time to focus on your health — both mental and physical. You'll start to feel like you're in the driver's seat and adopt what Dossé-Via calls a "warrior mindset." Just like Aries, you're ruled by the planet Mars, so you'll be feeling the influence of this sign — and acting more like it.
"Many Scorpios will be acting more Aries-like during this time," Dossé-Via says. "They'll flirt more, dance more, play more, and command more. This can either be super sexy to others or deeply intimidating. Either way, Scorpio will shine brightly and restructure their lives for the better during Aries season."
Sagittarius (22 Nov.-21 Dec.)
Try to stay focussed this season, Sagittarius. Just like Leo, you'll benefit from and feel invigorated by the Sun being in a fellow fire sign. Dossé-Via says that exploration, creativity, love, and adventure will all be areas of emphasis during Aries season. You might want to start new projects, hang out with a bunch of people, or go somewhere new.
While that's all going to feel really exciting, try to stay grounded and remember why you're doing what you're doing. "Your mission is to find ways to ground yourself amidst all the movement that will occur this season, so intentionally slowing down is key," Dossé-Via says.
Capricorn (22 Dec.-19 Jan.)
Home is where the heart is this season, Capricorn. "Capricorn placements will be focussed on making major moves at home or in family-related environments," Dossé-Via says. "That could look like setting clear boundaries about what concerns them or letting others know if they need more support." If there's something on your mind at home, this Aries season might be a good time to address it.
Dossé-Via also encourages Capricorns to be more patient with themselves. Aries's characteristics might make Capricorn feel a bit awkward and out of place, resulting in some behavioural inconsistencies. However, trying new things will only teach you more about yourself.
Aquarius (20 Jan.-18 Feb.)
You don't have to be perfect this season, Aquarius. This Aries season will have you feeling more free-spirited, passionate, communicative, and creative. You don't need to wait for everything to be fully formed before you do it — just jump right in.
"This is a motivating and refreshing season for Aquarians, as it reminds them that anything is possible if you're confident enough to go for it," Dossé-Via says.
Pisces (19 Feb.-20 March)
Even though the Sun is moving out of your sign, Pisces, Aries season is still going to be about you. "Learning how to be more selfish is a core lesson of Aries season for Pisces placements, and while it may not happen overnight, they will notice a huge shift when it comes to putting their own needs first," Dossé-Via says.
