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

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.
