Aries Singles Horoscope

Don't let anything get in the way of getting what you want in 2019!

Mars isn't at its happiest in Cancer from mid-May to July, so this isn't the ideal time to pursue love. This placement causes you to lose some of your usual strength and power, and some of your romantic appeal. You struggle when taking a direct approach, which means trying and failing in areas where you usually succeed. Your mood swings are hard to get used to, which also affects your romantic goals. You spend most of your time during these months on the defense instead of the offense, which can temporarily throw you off your romantic game. However, you always find a way to bounce back, and this down period is no exception.

The good news for this year is that love goddess Venus doesn't enter any retrograde periods, so there aren't a lot of dips in romantic energy. The mood is passionate and aggressive when Venus is in fire signs like yours, so when she enters Aries in late April, love is spontaneous and direct (just how you like it). Your boldness might be a breath of fresh air to some and a turnoff to others, but at least you won't have any regrets when you leave it all on the table. You want to seduce rather than be seduced, which means taking the lead as much as possible.

Mercury is in Aries at the same time as Venus, making your words bold and assertive. You don't always think before you speak, which can hurt your date's feelings from time to time, but you'd rather tell it like it is than be fake or phony. Your directness has a certain sexiness, but being overly blunt can totally kill the romantic mood.
