Early in February a recently postponed emotional decision will be finalized and made public.
Planetary alignments now suggest that your opinions, ideals and needs in close relationships will
soon be a top priority for loved ones, potential mates or long term companions. Deep issues of
confidence and emotional independence will, after late January, offer greater clarity, insight and
romantic awareness. Some Aries natives, especially those born between 1963 and 1987, will early this
year leave behind an unproductive relationship and begin a surprisingly passionate affair. Expect all
such beginnings to be brief but intensely rewarding: planetary aspects now indicate that both
long term relationships and newly begun love affairs will be disjointed, unpredictable and highly
expressive. Before late March, however, your emotional direction will become clear to all involved:
between March 18th and April 2nd make extra efforts to carefully explain your decisions, ideals and
short term plans to loved ones. Confusion will be temporary but deeply felt: watch for others to
challenge your social or romantic decisions until early April. Key life lessons this year involve claiming
responsibility for your own needs and leaving behind the overbearing demands of someone close. For
many Aries natives this will be achieved through actions and new life choices; for some, however, a
newfound confidence and sense of romantic self-worth will be an ongoing theme. After late May
romantic alliances will become gently loving, predictable and deeply satisfying: expect this
period of newly discovered harmony and physical intimacy to last for at least the next two years. A
complicated but extremely worthwhile year: watch for recently neglected issues or long withheld
feelings to soon rise quickly to the surface in all key relationships. Welcome the challenge: there's much to be gained.
