Aries, the sun remains in Libra until 15th November which can trigger the fiery elements of your personality. You may lack the confidence and motivation to go after what you want in a direct way and you may experience delays when it comes to auspicious tasks. This is a wonderful placement for those of you who are single as this placement indicates passion and excitement – the perfect elements to draw new love. On the 16th November the sun moves into Scorpio and you may struggle with lower than usual confidence levels. This is a good time to focus on your career and to make the most of your professional options. Mercury in Libra invites you to watch your words as you may say things that can inadvertently hurt others. If you need to stand your ground or defend others you can use this power positively. On the 8th, Mercury moves into mystical Scorpio which turns you into a powerhouse. Others appreciate your enthusiasm, strength of character and commitment and blended with Aries energy, you make a more intimate impact. On the 24th, Mercury moves into Sagittarius which can lead to a degree of personal disappointment in how things turn out. Can you be more spontaneous and go with the flow? Unexpected failures can lead us to newer pastures. When one door closes, another opens. Just keep looking for those open doors. On the 2nd, Venus in Libra produces mixed effects on health although this is ultimately a positive placement for you. On the 25th, Venus in Scorpio deepens your magnetism and impact on those around you. You will seek profound emotional connections with others and may come across as intense and willing to commit. There may be some anxiety associated with this position but just take it easy.
The coming year has much excitement in store for you, passionate Aries. There will be challenges to overcome, new lessons to learn and life issues to face head on, but with your optimistic nature and natural born leadership skills, you can take all of this in an easy stride. The year will bring you success in multiple ways, my fiery friend, if you continue to harvest that famous positive attitude. Although you prefer success to come to you quickly, this year you will have to develop a bit more patience than your red-hot spirit is used to handling.
It certainly won't be easy for your hot-blooded, restless self, but understand that in 2017, time and patience will bring you interesting and wonderful rewards. There is no time for negativity: keep your eyes on the prize and your mind in a calm place, and you will get through the year in true fire sign style...a blaze of glory! This is the time for you to practice what you do best, Aries. Use your tremendous and vibrant energy to focus entirely on yourself: your health, spirituality, goals and aspirations. If a new opportunity to treat yourself comes along, don't hesitate to jump, and always keep your energy dazzling and optimistic, no matter what new obstacles attempt to obscure your path.
Remember to keep those occasional moody moments and tiny tantrums under control, especially around early May, when Mercury directs in Aries, as this is the crucial month of the year for you. You will feel as if you're being tested, in strength and character, with different issues during the month, but a constant reinforcement of your innate positivity will help you sail through May unscathed and possibly bring about some exciting new surprises for you throughout the rest of the year.
