Make a different choice
Destiny spins right round, baby, right round!
What does the universe want you to experience?

A door you declined to walk through the first time it swings wide again this week, Aries. The ‘Welcome’ mat is well and truly down. So, what do you intend to do? The universe wants you to experience something soul-stretching now. Retrograde Mercury meets the Sun and then Venus in your 9th. It’s not just about bringing something back from the past but also about what you’ve learned along the way and applying a fresh perspective.

If you’ve ever looked back at your life and thought: ‘If only I’d known then what I know now’ – then this week could be that moment where you get to choose differently and come from that place of knowing.

When Mercury meets Venus, both planets will make a cosmically-charged trine to the North Node in your shining 5th house. Woo Hoo! It’s a spinning wheel of destiny and you’re sitting down at a high-stakes game. When it stops spinning, where will you land?

What I can tell you is that wherever it is, it is where you are meant to be. Second chances, choices and opportunities feature as does the ability to make a very different decision thanks to the Sun trineing wacky and genius Uranus in your sign.

The destiny-fuelled unexpectedness of the week extends to news, events and even your own thoughts which may surprise you. The outcome? Expect something different this time around.

· Set your intentions

· Wait for more information before acting

· Passion and desire propel you towards big changes

You’re starting the month with your energy at a peak and fuelled by the desire for change, Aries. Just ensure it’s structured change rather than change for just change’s sake. There’s a tendency to rush, to overthrow things without thinking them through. You’re craving freedom or something bigger. More is more for you now. Ruler Mars in your 7th opposes Uranus in your 1st at the top of the month. Plus you have four planets sitting in your 9th of freedom, learning and discovery with Venus arriving in here also on the 1st. Of course you want something bigger and better. You will be chafing against anything you feel restricts you

or holds you back. Seeing as your 9th house is the sign of the centaur – Sagittarius, my advice is to hold your horses if you possibly can. There’s a real risk here of throwing the baby out with the proverbial bathwater if you act in haste. You need to take that peak energy and the desire for new and limitless experiences and channel it constructively. If you can do this, you could just break free of restrictions for good. More will be revealed as Jupiter in your 8th makes a soul-revealing trine to Neptune in your 12th. You need this information as it contains both spiritual insight and confirmation of something you know deep down in your soul. Wait, assimilate then act.

Written presentations, projects, ideas, what you say and communicate, how you get around and your commute, siblings if you have them and your immediate neighbourhood. All these things come under the rulership of Mercury and your 3rd house. You’ve got a full Moon appearing in here on the 3rd – the exact same day by coincidence that Mercury heads retrograde in your 9th. Expect one, some or all of these themes to be in focus now and you may be hit with the full dose of Mercury Madness from the outside as a result of the full Moon in Mercury’s ruling house. I should not need to emphasise the need to strictly adhere to the Retrograde Rules. The Moon may make it all seem very emotional. Try to disconnect from this. If you experience delays, let go of frustrations and upsets if you can. If it it something you can fix, then do so. But if it is outside of your control – such as a travel snafu or cancellation, time to take a deep breath. There is not much you can do if stuck in a traffic jam but listen to music or deep breathe. If you are stuck waiting somewhere, have a coffee, read, answer messages and see it as an opportunity rather than an inconvenience. This way you will step free of emotional angst.

Hopefully by the start of the second week of the month, you have found where you need to make constructive changes in your life. Ruler Mars now makes some freedom enhancing angles to Mercury and Saturn, breaker of chains in your 9th before he exits your 7th and arrives in your 8th. Passion and desire now fuses with the intense need for something more. And you are now determined to make this happen. Bedroom action been more vanilla than shades of anything else recently? The only problem you may now have is that your partner may not be able to keep up! With Mercury retrograde it is not a good time to begin anything new, but the possibility of an old lover returning could be just the spark that re-fans the flames for you is there when Venus meets Mercury retrograde. The energy that surrounds you demands expression however. This is your house of change and personal power. Reclaim, revise, realign during the Mercury retro.

The signs of constructive new beginnings and a fresh direction for you, are about to appear. You know the old order won’t serve you any longer. The status quo has to change. But you’ve been waiting for the direction to reveal itself. Now it does beginning with a fabulous trine by the Sun in your 9th to Uranus in your 1st – you see exactly what needs to be done and this comes without the need to makes changes for their own sake. Now you have direction and impulsion. All aided by the new Moon in your 9th which sees doors to learning and opportunity open wide. Saturn makes a landmark and powerful move the next day heading into his ruling house in your chart – your 10th. Do not underestimate the significance of this – or the potential it holds for you. This is the first time Saturn has been in this sector of your chart for 28 years. So, many of you out there will not have had this experience before – or perhaps not as fully-fledged adults. This is your house of status, long

term career, authority and commitment. How do you wield your own authority over your own life? If you’ve been directionless, you could now find it. Saturn says it’s time to get serious and to join the grown-ups. You’ll be able to bring a new maturity and gravitas into your career and also your relationships. It’s about knowing that you are the one who makes things happen – or knows how to work with the people who can. As the Sun enters your 12th and meets Saturn in here, it’s time to commit even if it’s just on a psychological or soul level. As the 10th rules the status of our partner, if you are looking for love then it could be time to clarify your intentions – about what you are looking for and what you expect in return. Saturn in here is all about knowing what it is you want. And taking that seriously. You’ve got a new year preparing month that highlights those long-term ambitions as the Sun moves in here on Solstice Day and meets Saturn. In fact for many of us, the New Year begins here when it comes to the area of our charts Saturn occupies. Mercury moves direct again on the 23rd and while he is still in retrograde shadow, this is now your cue to begin to leave those shackles behind you. Venus also arrives in Capricorn on Dec 25 and she also meets Saturn in here. Perhaps only the most serious love will do now. Your own desires may surprise you before the old year departs as true motives (yours or anothers) are revealed as ruler Mars trines Neptune. Both are in their ruling houses so expect soul-powerful stuff.

annual horoscope

Aries Yearly Horoscope 2017

Wow, Aries 2017 is going to be a scorcher, especially in your love life! Uranus has been messing with your love mojo over the past few years. In fact, since 2011, you’ve been going through all sorts of surprising upheavals and unexpected life events. The good news is that he is calming down and you only have two more years to go before you have passed your Uranus test and can lay solid foundations.

Although you are an enthusiastic lover and partner, your heart has been a little bit detached (this is so very unlike you). You’ve stepped into your independence and not trusted in the way you once did. Jupiter, the Planet of luck and expansion, is continuing to give you a break in 2017. He slipped into your position of love and relationships in early September, and you should have already noticed some subtle shifts in your personal relationships. You find yourself seeking peace and balance and are unusually willing to compromise.

The good news does not end there as Venus the Planet of love goes into your sign on Feb 3rd. Jupiter is bringing you the best relationship energy you have had for probably 12 years and Venus in your sign seals the deal. If you want to sort your love life out, then the early part of the year is ideal. You’re warm-hearted and inspired to share the love, and you bring joy to those around you. Venus is also smiling on your finances and an impromptu increase in your wealth (you might even hook up with a wealthy or well-connected partner this year).

Having said that, get stuck in and transform your love energy before March, when Venus in your sign goes retrograde bringing past issues or dragging up an ex who could cause complications. March isn’t the right time to meet a new lover as you might choose them for the wrong reasons and regret it when Venus turns direct. It can also make you misbehave or be selfish and unforgiving; steer clear of that and remember the love and happy times.

On top of that, Mars also goes into your sign early 2017, on January 28th, super boosting your energy and making you feel invincible. You can achieve great things but are also a tad rash and even more impulsive. Don’t take unnecessary risks or get too big for your boots. Being humble and grateful wins the day. Save the fire for getting things done. You are at your charismatic best and know it! Mars invokes passion and war, think about where you want to channel this golden opportunity.

On the 11th February, there’s a significant eclipse, and it urges caution when it comes to love, creativity and children. I wouldn’t issue any ultimatums around this time as there could be an ending or drastic change in your circumstances. The Solar eclipse on 21 August may revisit whatever comes up so make sure you are honest and truly sort it out; having said that, an excellent cleansing and a new beginning is coming.

On the 22nd of Feb avoid power struggles at work, don’t be too bolshy. A New Moon Eclipse on the 26th brings a spiritual or psychic revelation.

Look out for an opportunity on the 19th May; it’s an innovative time for you so use it to your advantage.

Jupiter leaves you breathless with satisfaction (hopefully!) with magic still glowing on your love life, and he enters a dark and mysterious place, as he is the Planet of good fortune and abundance you achieve luck through power, transformation and possibly an inheritance or surprise lump sum of money. You’re fearless and sexy as hell. He stays here until early November 2018.

This year, you’re still committed and compelled to expand, grow and think outside the box. Other countries, unusual people and other cultures, as well as learning, could bring you abundance. You’re an adventurer, a cosmic Buccaneer with a heart of stardust; it’s your turn to cross frontiers and seek treasure in the eccentric. Your inventive rocket ride features all year, but comes to a head, out of the blue, on 11th November 2017 when Saturn trines Uranus in your sign.
