Yes, they certainly are! When our bold and fearless planet Mars comes home to roost in the sign he governs, you can expect so many great things to happen!
If you have your natal Mars in Aries, then congratulations are in order! This is a once every 2 years event that will energize you like crazy and give you the drive and motivation you need to make huge steps forward.
But, whether or not you have Mars in Aries, you’ll benefit from this transit. Fresh ways to solve problems, new interest in getting out and doing things, and super-productivity at the work place are some of the highlights that we will all experience to one degree or another.
Aries is the natural leader of the Zodiac, and, also, it’s arguably the most powerful sign. Why? Because Aries as a sign has all the planets in their natural place. Aries in the first house, Taurus in the second, Gemini in the third, etc. That’s not your natal placement, but that’s true for Aries as a whole, and, since all the signs are lined up perfectly, it adds incredible power to their energy.
With that said, we do need to take care that you do not take one too much at once. Aries wants to do it all – and wants it done five minutes ago. While the spirit of “getting it done now” is good, it’s not always going to be possible, so we need to temper out enthusiasm with practical approaches.
A great start.
2019 is really getting off to a wonderful start with Mars in Aries pushing us forward, but, there is one other thing: Uranus in Aries will be turning direct on January 6th! These two planets are super-harmonious, bringing the elements of Fire and Air together in ways that can literally change the world, and, we are also especially blessed as seeing Uranus in Aries is a once-in-a-lifetime event.
Have a healthy and joyous New Year!
