The Sun spends about one month moving through each zodiac sign, traveling through all twelve in the course of a year. The Sun’s arrival in Aries at the start of each new cycle is marked by the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the Autumn Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere and is an important point in the astrological calendar. The regular transits of the Sun through each astrology sign in turn serve to shift our astrological attention from the energies of one sign to the next, creating a kind of pattern for the year for each of us.
When the Sun transits Aries on March 20th, 2021 through April 19th, 2021, the qualities and traits associated with Aries become more important to all signs. In astrology, Aries is associated with bravery and courage – some might say recklessness! – impulsiveness, ambition, competitiveness and a desire to win at all costs. Aries energy is all-action, for better or for worse, and this high-energy transit does what it says, emboldening us all and bringing a touch of courage to face difficult situations.
During the Sun in Aries transit, there’s a sense of newness in the world, and a willingness to try something different. Excitement runs high, but can quickly run out of control too, when this energy tips over the edge into aggression or anger. In astrology, Aries energy is described as wanting to run long before it can walk, so this can be a very impatient time for many of us, because we can see where we want to be and just can’t wait to get there.
Each astrology sign will experience the Sun in Aries transit differently, depending on the individual’s own natal chart, but all signs will sense a need to win and a desire to be first, and most of us will feel more bravado than normal. You can use the Sun in Aries transit to re-energize and re-invigorate your life goals.

For Cancer, Sun in Aries is a very career-focused transit. Promotion at work is perhaps yours for the taking, if you’re brave enough to showcase your skills. You can also be a very successful team leader now but be careful not to drown out the quieter voices in the mix.

You’d love to travel right now, and you may feel rather restless if you’re stuck in one place or in a job you loathe. Get creative about your options, Leo. There are ways and means of getting what you want, and you have the charm and the intelligence to figure this out.
Sun in Aries for a Virgo (Virgo dates: August 22 – September 21)
The fired-up Sun in Aries transit helps you to vocalize and express your emotions, Virgo, which is something that’s long overdue. Use this transit to shine a light on any past trauma. Turn your competitive focus towards competing to be the best version of you that you can be – and that means getting help from counseling or therapy where necessary.
Sun in Aries for a Libra (Libra dates: September 22 – October 22)
The Sun in Aries transits your love zone, Libra, so romance is certainly high on your agenda now. Be as passionate as you like but try to remember that there is a fine line between passion and anger – arguments are highly likely in your closest relationship, so keep things in perspective. This burst of warm, life-bringing energy could be just what a flagging connection needs.
Sun in Aries for a Scorpio (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)
This Aries Sun shines a light on your health, Scorpio – physical and mental. As difficult as your health issues may be, there’s really no excuse for not attending to them now. Use the bravery of this transit to face things head on, even if you’ve been dreading them. There’s a great deal you can do to help yourself, but it starts with asking for help from the experts.
Sun in Aries for a Sagittarius (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)
Creatively, the Sun in Aries transit is brilliant for your imagination, Sagittarius. Whatever floats your boat artistically, you should do more. Bold and energized, this is also a fantastic period for your love life. If you’re single, you’ll be a highly engaging date; if you’re already with someone, use this energy to rekindle the spark you first had together.
Sun in Aries for a Capricorn (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 18)
Family arguments could explode during this rather fierce transit through your family zone, Capricorn. However, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Clearing the air will remind everyone how much they do love one another, and it should help to clarify where everyone in the family stands. Plan plenty of fun times together to mitigate any lingering resentments.
Sun in Aries for an Aquarius (Aquarius dates: January 19 – February 17)
This transit activates your learning zone, Aquarius, so it’s a brilliant time for studying (astrology?), and you’ll make fast progress through any kind of course. Your communication skills are highlighted here too, but you’ll need to be careful with social media – posting things on impulse could lead to some embarrassment later. Think first, Aquarius, and step away from the keyboard or phone!
Sun in Aries for a Pisces (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)
Pisces, this transit activates your financial zone. The impulsive energy of Aries could easily lead to overspending, but this transit also brings you the impetus and enthusiasm to earn more money, and to fix any financial problems. This is also a good time to reconsider your whole relationship with money, Pisces, and to give more thanks for the many intangible, non-material blessings in your life.
