When you stand your ground with those who’re argumentative, you don’t think of yourself as being stubborn. But in this particular case, that’s exactly what you’re doing and, worse, it’s preventing you taking advantage of a remarkable idea or offer. Pause. Think carefully. Then say ‘yes’. You’ll be glad you did.
Clashes are in the air. These climax by Wednesday’s run-in between your ruler Mars and the planet of power struggles, Pluto. While they’re unavoidable, take things slowly and you’ll learn a lot. Initially, you’ll gather valuable facts about the people or situations involved. Then discuss matters in depth and you’ll recognise how you could have handled things better, and achieve your goals without time-consuming dramas.
The past few months have been about disentangling yourself from alliances and arrangements that were restrictive or dull, but often gave no clear idea of what’s next. The move by your ruler Mars into Aries on 28 January, to remain until 10 March, begins a powerful new cycle. While certain plans are clear, others must wait until February’s dramatic changes take place. These shake-ups open doors in exciting if completely unanticipated directions. Explore absolutely everything, since what seems least likely could, ultimately, work best.
Year to come
Aries March 20 – April 18
During this rewarding year, you’ll find yourself achieving personal goals and objectives, some longstanding. This is kick-started by your ruler, Mars, being positioned in Aries from 27 January to 10 March, which both focuses your mind and boosts your spirits. What you begin then will shape this year and many to come, as well. Plus, with fortunate Jupiter accenting close alliances, personal and out in the world, until October, working closely with others will bring remarkable benefits. This will be both exciting and challenging. In fact, you may need to slow your usual swift pace or even let others take the lead.
Love and Relationships
Despite your strong independent spirit, close relations with family, friends and even colleagues become a priority. Others take a greater role in your life, influencing everything from your tasks to your leisure time. Much as you love this, relinquishing control could sometimes be challenging.
Finances and Work
Imagination and teamwork are key. There’s the potential to benefit from new ideas, but because those are likely to come from others, you may need to let them take the lead. What you learn and the benefit you gain justify learning to be flexible.
Health and Well Being
During this demanding but exciting year, looking after yourself is even more important than usual. Since teamwork’s a theme, try partnering in your fitness routine. Similarly, coaching in your way of eating could smooth out those occasional ups and downs.
