Astrologically, eclipses indicated turning points for signs, especially for those in which they take place, this year in Aquarius and Leo. The total eclipse on Aug 21 is so rare it’s already attracting attention for its scientific and metaphysical interest. With that and a host of planetary activities set to occur, Shelley von Strunckel offers a peek of what your zodiac sign has in store over the next six months ARIES MARCH 20 – APRIL 18 LIFESTYLE, CAREER AND GOALS
Patience isn’t your strength. What’s more, with exciting if unexpected, developments reshaping elements of your life, daily routine or professional setting, you’re eager to take advantage of these promising events.
Your ability to take the initiative, even in difficult situations, is an asset. Still, move too swiftly now and you could be committed to plans or ventures when the amazing events promised by the link between Uranus, which is in Aries, and the planet of achievement, Saturn, takes place on November 11.
Between now and then, therefore, declutter your life and eliminate ideas that are taking up your time but are going nowhere.
This review will also help you spot which settings and pursuits are past their peak and, better yet, shift your focus to what shows promise. If you work, this means thinking through, then suggesting, new ideas. Between your fiery enthusiasm and restless courage, you’re happiest juggling a range of tasks. First, rid yourself of unproductive activities, then invest that passion in pursuits that will be as rewarding as they are exciting.
The next year promises to be rewarding for you, in terms of finances and your assets. And what you learn during the last half of 2017 will have a great deal to do with what you achieve. But frustratingly for you, what’s most promising involves others – from colleagues to coworkers or business partners – and their insistence on investigating the facts in detail will cause delays as irritating as they are worrying.
Yet, as you’ll have learnt during the year’s first half, that process of questioning reveals crucial facts. Teamwork remains crucial. The accent is on working closely with others, so whatever you’re pursuing, teamwork will be a big part of the process, although the clash between fortunate Jupiter and Uranus, which is in Aries, on September 28, could make you question these alliances. It’s a good time to explore, meet new people and learn about recent developments. You may stick with what you have, but if so, it will be with a fresh conviction.
FAMILY AND RELATIONSHIPS
For you, as an intense, passionate Aries, your approach to life is ‘all or nothing’. This means that when you’re involved with family, loved ones or even friends, that commitment is total and you expect the same from others. The fact is, your sheer zest for life adds something special to each of those links.
However, you can’t give that degree of attention, enthusiasm or affection to everybody, all the time. While that juggling act is nothing new, during the last half of 2017, it could turn into emotional dramas, where either certain individuals complain they’re not getting enough attention or you succumb to the stress caused by these conflicts.
The emotionally intense Aries Full Moon on October 5 not only brings these to a head, but gives you good reason to talk over any such issues. Ordinarily your impulse would be to brush these aside, hoping things will go better. However, your instincts will correctly say that an investment in frank extended discussions will pay off big time. This applies as much to those seeking alliances.
YOUR ECLIPSE BREAKTHROUGH
Sudden events or happy encounters teach you to make time for what, and who, you love a priority.
