Aries in 2013
You're in a process of redefining yourself, Aries. 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. Focus your attention the first half of the year on expanding your education and learning new things. The window of time between May 31st and June 24th is especially pivotal when it comes to learning new ways to communicate. On June 25th, Jupiter shifts into Cancer and your House 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.
Love And Romance
With innovative Uranus in your House of Self-Identity, you're changing -- and so must your relationships. With Saturn firmly planted in your House 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 House 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 tension. Giving your partner space may be just what the doctor ordered to reduce potential stress.
Career And Money
Your professional life continues to go through a long period of transformation. Ever since probing Pluto entered Capricorn and your House of Career in 2008, your work has been in a state of flux. Be open to the changes that come your way as you redefine yourself professionally. Be proactive about shifting directions and, if possible, do what you love. Where you are ultimately headed 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 squares innovative Uranus -- may prove to be powerfully evocative points along your career trajectory. Your planetary guide, warrior Mars, charges through your House of Work from October 15th through December 7th. Coworker relationships are on your radar, and you have great determination to finish up projects. With structured Saturn in your House of Commitments, shared resources are under the microscope this year. Be extra careful when entering into joint investments. Try to clean up any debts you have by 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 Solar Eclipse graces your House of Resources on May 9th, initiating a new phase in your finances. It's a great time to set 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.
