The year begins with a lot of back and forth on the career front. Whether you are negotiating a salary, interviewing for a new position, or simply working on a big proposal at the office, you can expect delays and communication glitches. None of this is good or bad, it just is, dear Ram. So be patient and wait; February will bring progress. The same is true if you are completing a training course that could increase your earning potential, there may be some delays while you wait to receive your final grade or certification.
In fact, learning in general is highlighted this year. Whether you are enrolled in a degree program, or gaining knowledge through travel and cultural pursuits, your mind and personal philosophies are sure to expand. Of course, this may bring a new set of challenges. If you are in an educational environment, you may have to be more focused and disciplined when it comes to your studies. It is equally possible that your own personal beliefs begin to limit you from stepping outside of your comfort zone. Pay attention to where you are being too narrow-minded, Aries. Don’t be afraid to broaden your awareness and understanding.
Eclipses this year will also initiate new chapter beginnings. A romance or creative project may shift or reach completion in February, leading you to deeper insights and clarity around love, children, and you own self-identity when it comes to authentic living. Information revealed now could help you to “get things right” with regards to your own artistry and affairs of the heart as we reach Eclipses in August. You may decide to walk away from a long-standing organization or affiliation, so that you can invest in the projects and people that bring you joy.
In between Eclipses, however, will be some rather jolty energy. March and April will see you reevaluating everything from future life goals, to your look, style, and personal sense of security. You may feel low confidence during these months, and question everything! Be patient as you work out what needs working out – May and June will be better months to move forward with your plans.
The end of year period brings two new turning points around commitments. The planet Jupiter will enhance your love life through most of 2017, with a few low points from February through June. But by the time October comes around, you may be saying “I do” to a new love interest, or cementing a merger in a business partnership. Meanwhile, the Winter Solstice comes with an omen by the name of Saturn (the ringed planet) that will push you to shift focus on career matters. 2018 will be a challenging year when it comes to your vocation and sense of purpose. You’ve got the next 12 months to create a clearer vision for your life – good luck!
Happy New Year, Aries!
