ARIES (March 20-April 19)

How many commercials have we seen promising some version of "the new you," whether it was for a workout gadget, hair color, or a mental outlook offered in a self-help book? Despite our collective obsession with personal renewal, this seems to be something that rarely works. Part of why involves our attachment to the past, and the typically human fear of change. Yet these tumble when we have a vision that we want to create with passion.

With Uranus entering your birth sign for the next seven years, your sense of self becomes something entirely flexible, and you may have the feeling that anything is possible. That is true: Yet what, exactly, do you want to be possible? Over the past few seasons you've had a clue. It may have seemed like something too good to be true, or impossible because it was so amazing. That's the thing to guide yourself with. Don't worry about whether it seems possible, or concern yourself with plotting every step in the process. You grew from a zygote into a fetus into a child and then into an adult understanding nothing about how that worked on the anatomical level. Thank goodness for DNA.

The DNA of Uranus in your sign suggests not merely personal renewal but rather ongoing personal revolution. It may take a while to figure out what I mean, but it will become obvious. From the inside, this may feel like the desire to burst free even though you did precisely that yesterday; to drop every pretense you ever put up; to act boldly and immediately, instead of taking years to plan things that rarely happen. Something inside is seeking to set itself free. In short, this transit brings out your true nature, as if a veil were being lifted off of your psyche.

Your inner awareness is being joined closer with your daily expression. You will tap the rich potential even of what seemed like negative developments. Whatever may have happened during the past four seasons, trust that the world has made room for you, for the work you want to do, and the person you want to be in your deepest relationships. Patience may be the most challenging virtue you can muster in these seasons of your life. This is a new kind of patience—one based not on waiting, but on cultivating trust in yourself, practiced like yoga from day to day.
