March 20 – April 19
L ate last year, Mars, the ruler of your zodiac sign, moved into the part of your chart that has an impact on all forms of close relationships and alliances, personal and out in the world. While you’ve learned a lot about certain individuals and how to get along with them, on July 26, Mars begins a cycle during which you’ll focus on a range of activities and interests, first on finances, until mid-September, then until late October on broadening your horizons through reading, study or, perhaps, travel. During much of November, you’ll be making plans to relax, and during December you’ll get a chance to spend some quality time with friends.
There are indications that later in the year you’ll plunge into a plan, or even a relationship, simply because it excites you. While this may make life interesting, it could also mean you end up wasting time on needless projects and avoidable stressful adventures. During the last two months of the year, think about what you’ve learnt and invest time in gathering information about your options. This personal review, together with potential changes that accompany the intense Aries eclipsed Full Moon on October 8, will be helpful, if not crucial. The trick is to get involved in what interests and excites you, but in such a way that, as you learn more, you can rethink your role or, if things don’t work out as you hoped, extricate yourself without too many dramas.
For you, as a passionate Aries, this may seem to be overly cautious, if not a compromise. But remember, what you do; the ideas you encounter; and the people you meet during this period will benefit you in future.
