We’ve all felt the energy of an Aries entering our lives, setting everything on fucking fire, and then bounding off to gods know where. This is that same energy, except extended and stretched through time into a barrage of bonfires. With Jupiter in Libra in opposition to our Aries houses, this seems like a time of a great need for balance between our individuation and our partnerships. We are about to get heavy in our Aries house with multiple planets ready to essentially set the world on fire and join up with Uranus and Eris.
People are going to start getting impassioned – and not just to have sex for days on end (which this energy is surely capable of sparking). Eros in Aries is that itch that just needs to be scratched; essentially prepare for a cornucopia of desire and prepare for it to get hotter and hotter as more planets move into the sign of the ram. You are going to want to get involved in anything that brings more passion, spontaneity, and a sense of being fully “present” into your life. Every day monotonous activities and duties will be flavored with a bit of Aries excitement.
This transit looks GOOD. Eros is Aries is going to make us seem sexy. It’s going to propel the powers of whatever house you have Aries in, and it is extremely positive for attracting sexual partners. For those of you who are already sexually active, this transit is going to add some hot bloodedness to your interactions. Expect the unexpected from your lovers, because during this transit they are going to be seeing you with new eyes. You are going to look like just the thing that hits the spot. Love making under this transit is raw, sexy, enchanting and life giving. Please, please, please take advantage of this gift.
New aspects to your relationship will surely be birthed because of this transit. Passionate sex can open up all sorts of formerly closed gates for couples. If you are truly living in – present – in the experience of raw love making, you can reach vulnerable places that use to have ice walls built up before them. Fire melts ice, remember this. Let your passion flow, and you will surely learn things you couldn’t see before.
