Aries 2021 Horoscope (March 21 - April 20)

Spring has come and so has Aries. The fire sign is here to shake things up and make life interesting. 

Time to start pursuing the goals you made plans for in previous seasons, or to make unplanned moves to see what happens. This is the time to step forth, excited and determined, into the world. 


Nine of Swords | Ace of Pentacles | Ten of Swords

Another turn around the sun and it’s your time to shine. The path to success has not been particularly easy. It’s taken a toll on you, mentally and physically. Your safe haven may be closer than you think. 

Whether you’ve completed the journey or not, you can always find a friend or loved one to unwind with. Once your head is clear, you’ll be able to see the opportunities around you. 

But remember to be discerning about the paths you decide to take. You are the only person in control of your future, and poor choices can send you in the wrong direction.

Two of Wands | Four of Pentacles | Three of Pentacles

This is the season of movers and shakers. After a lot of planning and preparation, you’ve decided to put your plans into action. Be prepared to learn about the world and yourself during this time. You’ll be receiving a masterclass on staying in your lane this season.   

This might be a brand new experience but you’re following in the footsteps of many other people. Many of them will be farther along or more successful. 

Don’t compare yourself to them. You’ll just tie yourself in knots trying to figure out what you’re doing wrong, which is probably nothing. Instead, focus on yourself, what you’re doing and keep moving forward at your own pace. 



Two of Cups | The Hermit | Eight of Cups

Look for unity this season. It might come in the form of a personal relationship or developing positive lines of communication with your colleagues, but they’ll bring balance to your life. That might feel a little rough right now. Quarantine has made hermits of us all, and virtual meets are nothing like real-world interaction. 

Our thoughts are not often the best things to be left alone with. So take the first step to freedom and get out of the house, and away from your bad thoughts.  

Don’t worry about being confused about what to do next. Choosing your next step or removing that toxic person from your life has you feeling stuck. We’re all trying to figure out what to do next. But know this: You are the only person who can change your life. Be courageous and control your future. 


Five of Pentacles | Two of Cups | Eight of Swords

As you step into spring, the darkness that hovered over you is finally beginning to leave. It won’t be all sunshine and rainbows, but your troubles are starting to ease. 

Now that all of your attention isn’t focused on solving an abundance of problems, you can find ways to bring balance to your life. That might be new friends, a change of location or a new mindset. That might be easier said than done. But a change of pace could do you some good. 

Although you feel secure, with plenty of new friends and good habits to help you cope, you’re not in the clear. Rely on your support circle to help you through the bad times and celebrate the good ones. You don’t have to let the bad in life keep you down.

The Moon | Seven of Swords | Five of Pentacles

You’re not sure what your next steps will be. A rough patch has come up and it’s taken the wind out your sails. Bigger problems just seem to be around every corner, and the time and energy needed to fix them are slowly dragging you down. 

You need to be well informed on what your next choice is. To do that, you need to uncover some truths. Embody 

Aries this season and actively seek out the truth: Who’s ready to push you forward and who’s here to keep you back. There’s no time to play games and let others waste your time. If you let them hold you down, you might find yourself stuck in a rut. 


Death | Six of Cups | Page of Pentacles

It’s time to let go. Your bad habits, relationship or mindset are holding you back and you’re letting them. The fear of letting go and moving on has shackled you to the people or things that you’ve outgrown, mentally and physically. 

They might be safe and remind you of better times but there are bigger, better things calling your name. Don’t let yourself lose motivation and avoid work. 

It might be hard now but no one gets anywhere without a little bit of elbow grease. Change requires us to let go of the old and let in the new. Move on with your life. 


Three of Swords | Ace of Pentacles | Three of Pentacles

There’s been a lot of stress in your cards and it’s continuing into this season. Conflict has been hanging around you like a bad smell. It might be disagreements at work or arguments with your significant other, but it feels like you haven’t had a moment of peace. 

You’ve been in a funk that’s given you a bad mood and drained your energy because of that. 

Even though it feels impossible right now, the only way to get a decent night’s rest and feel at ease is to talk it out. So before all your bridges are burned and the situation is unsalvageable, have a heart-to-heart about what’s really going on. 


Ace of Wands | Temperance | Page of Cups

After Pisces gave you a pick-me-up, you’re getting into the groove of things. Whether it’s a new relationship or a new job, there’s a spark that’s propelling you forward. Don’t get too ahead of yourself though. 

Life is good and it feels like you can abandon work and pursue pleasure. But when life’s easy, we pick up bad habits faster than we realize.  It’s not the time to go to extremes. 

Think of your long-term goals and the balance you need to reach them. If you can’t find ways to keep busy, get creative with work or friends to keep you off of bad paths.

Nine of Cups |  Ace of Cups | Queen of Swords

After a tough time getting to your feet, you’ve finally found success. Not only have you achieved your goals, you’ve been recognized for the hard work you put in. But there’s a little gloominess that’s been hanging over your head. 

For all your success and recognition, you’ve hit a wall. It could be a conflict with your colleagues or a little loneliness at home. Essentially, you’re missing that human connection, the one you need to thrive. 

It’s time to sit down and figure out what to do next. Although it’s not your style, tackle your problems in an orderly fashion. Remember that communication is key for solving your people problems and ensuring future success. 


Queen of Swords | Six of Swords | The Fool

After spending last season in love with love, your head is screwed on right this time. You’ve figured out what you do and don’t want from a partner. 

The clear head that comes with using discernment has shown you the problems of previous relationships. The mistakes you made before are now valuable lessons. 

Although your selection process for jobs, friends and romance is strict, you can still have a little fun. Go forth into life expecting to enjoy yourself. 


Eight of Pentacles | The Fool | Three of Swords

You’ve worked long and hard to reach your goals, yet it feels like you’re getting nowhere. A lot of your relationships, personal and professional, are suffering because of it. The spark for your work has started to dim. But don’t let it go out. 

There’s still plenty that the world has to offer you, you just have to be willing to find it. This might mean taking a break to pursue something else or finding new ways to love your work. 

There’s no rush. As you find new ways to love yourself and the work you create, stability and success will find their way into your life. 


Page of Pentacles | Two of Pentacles | The High Priestess

After re-situating yourself last season, you’re finally ready to execute a plan of action. You’ve found ways to balance yourself and adapt. You’re resourceful and creative. Your plans, once put into action, will succeed. 

But none of it will last if you don’t have your head screwed on right. Although the logistics have been worked out long in advance, if your spirit isn’t right, you’re going nowhere fast. 

Before setting out to pursue your wildest dreams, take a moment to realign yourself. Find out what, deep down, you really want then make your mark on the world.
