You're in a process of redefining yourself. This is not a short-term trend, but rather one that will last for several more years as electric Uranus continues to reside in your sign. You're innovating and changing, reinventing who you want to be. This personal shape-shifting should be especially evident the second part of March, when your planetary guide, warrior Mars, connects with Uranus and probing Pluto. Additionally, the time period when Uranus and Pluto square off - between May 20th and November 1st - will likely be intense. Realizations and events may shake your foundation and require you to make tough choices. Try to remember that, while change can be stressful, it's often instrumental in creating a more joyful and meaningful life.
During the first half of the year, focus your attention on expanding your education and learning new things. The window of time between May 31st and June 24th is especially important when it comes to learning new ways to communicate. On June 25th, Jupiter shifts into Cancer and your Sector of Roots. For the next year, interactions with family members will help you understand yourself better. You'll experience an expanded sense of what home means, and may find yourself wanting to fix yours up. If so, wait until after July 20th to buy new furniture or undertake any major home improvement projects. July 22nd is an especially lucky day for you, as Mars unites with expansive Jupiter. Plenty of opportunities should come your way.
With avant-garde Uranus in your Sector of Self-Identity, you're changing Ã¢â‚¬" and so will your relationships. With Saturn firmly planted in your Sector of Commitments this year, superficial connections don't interest you. You want to explore a deeper sense of connectedness. As Saturn shifts into retrograde motion on February 18th, it becomes evident that an event in your past has been keeping you from opening up to someone. Romantic Venus, liberating Uranus and the radiant Sun all unite in your sign on March 28th. It's a day filled with romantic surprises. Really being there for someone takes on great meaning around July 7th, when Saturn starts moving forward again.
Romance is on an upswing from August 27th through October 15th as your ruling planet, assertive Mars, travels through your Sector of Love Affairs. Things start to get a bit more serious with the Lunar Eclipse on October 18th. It could be a make-or-break time for a partnership. What occurs may seem surprising at first, but likely it's been in the works for some time. If your relationship is getting more serious, avoid making commitments, such as popping the question or deciding to move in together, between October 21st and November 10th, when Messenger Mercury is retrograde and affecting your relationship sector. You get a glimpse of what true intimacy means on the Solar Eclipse on November 3rd. Mars opposes Uranus on December 25th, which could create relationship friction. Giving your partner space may be just what the doctor ordered to reduce potential stress.
Your professional life continues to be going through a long period of transformation, Aries. Ever since transformative Pluto entered Capricorn and your House of Career in 2008, your work has been in a state of flux and redefinition. Be open to the changes that come your way. Being proactive about shifting directions and really doing what you love can serve you well. Where you are ultimately going may not be clear, but remember that the journey is as important as the destination. The periods around May 20th and November 1st-when Pluto forms a square to innovative Uranus-may evidence evocative and powerful moments in your career trajectory. Your planetary guide, warrior Mars, charges through your House of Work from October 15th through December 7th. Co-worker relationships are on your radar screen and you have great determination to get projects complete.
With structured Saturn in your House of Commitments, shared resources are under the microscope this year. Be really careful before participating in joint investments. Try to clean up debts you may have with friends on the Lunar Eclipse on April 25th. If that's not possible, have a dialogue about money matters so that everyone is clear about their fiscal responsibilities. A new phase in finances gets initiated on May 9th when a Solar Eclipse triggers your House of Resources. It's a great time to make intentions related to earning and saving more money. The impact of the Eclipse may not be immediately evident but should become clearer over the next six months.
