|ARIES - 21st March to 20th April
This is shaping up to be a banner love and social year. Both romance and friendships are blooming. First off, Venus, your Love Planet will make one of her rare (every two years or so) retrogrades (May 17th to June 29th). This means that a current relationship or your current love life in general, is getting re-evaluated. A good thing, too. We need to review our relationships every two years or so. In many cases, a current love, perhaps even a marriage will dissolve. It will not be able to stand up to the scrutiny of your review.
Some relationships will survive, some will not. Those who are not in a relationship will be reviewing their needs and desires in love. Getting clear about what they really want. This will clear the decks for Jupiter's beautiful transit through your 7th House of Love and Marriage beginning September 25th. Singles will meet significant others and marriage is likely. Marrieds will have more romance in their relationship, will attract new friends, will attend more weddings and parties and will probably travel more as a couple.
The most active and happy social period will begin slightly before Jupiter's move into your 7th House on September 22nd. This is when the Sun will enter the House of Marriage. Then, Jupiter on the 25th and Mars (your ruling Planet) on the 26th. Like the classic Aries, you're not waiting around for the phone to ring. You are out there letting people know you're available or letting those who attract you know how you feel. You are the aggressor in love. This will be a period of intense social activity and it looks very happy.
Whether you are working on your first, second or even third marriage, all of you Aries have wonderful aspects and opportunities. All the relationships seem to be with 'glamorous' people, wealthy, educated, refined and lovers of travel. Those working towards a third marriage will meet someone more spiritual and creative. Wealth in and of itself is not such a big factor for you.
Though there is much happiness in love this year, the road is not completely smooth. A Solar Eclipse on October 14th will test your current love. In some cases, the love could be a false start, merely a cosmic shot across the bows, preparing you for something even better in the future. Your social aspects are strong well into next year and sometimes people need preparation before they meet real love. In most cases, the eclipse will just clear the air of misunderstandings and hesitancy. It forces the relationship either forward or breaks it off. It forces decisions.
The love life of a child of marriageable age is becoming much more stable than it has been. There is a serious relationship with a glamorous person and it could lead to marriage either this year or next year. Grandchildren of marriageable age need to be patient this year. The status quo will probably prevail. The main challenge to love this year is the family obligations mentioned earlier. Somehow you have to balance these with your social urges. Gaining the approval of a parent could present a problem. Guilt over spending so much time socialising could present another but true love will prevail.
TAURUS - 21st April to 21st May
With your 7th House of Love and Marriage empty most of the year, love and romance are not big priorities in the year ahead. Friendships seem much more important than serious committed relationships. The empty 7th House shows that you have much leeway in shaping this area as you will but the problem is lack of interest.
Usually this shows a status-quo situation. Singles tend to remain single and marrieds tend to remain married.
Your social life in general is more stable than it has been in past years. There is an expansion of your social circle slow and steady. The relationships that you get involved in are much deeper than usual. Though wedding bells are not ringing for singles, there is still much love opportunity happening most of the year. This opportunity is 'fun and games' though probably highly erotic but not serious, long-lasting, committed-type love. A year for love affairs. In fact, Taureans are contemplating the merits of one type of relationship over the other. Why marry and get entangled in all kinds of legalisms, commitments and compromises when one can have love without it? And yet, the stability of a committed relationship also has its allures. You Taureans like to know whom you are going to be with on New Year's Eve and holidays. You don't want to be caught 'in between' boyfriends or girlfriends.
Married Taureans will see their marriages tested by outside love opportunities. This doesn't mean that you or your spouse will be unfaithful, only that the opportunity will be there and you will have to make choices. Though these choices can sometimes be painful, they are good in that you see whether your love and commitment are real. How can you know the depth of your commitment if you've never been tempted? A Lunar Eclipse on May 14th can bring the above issues to a head. Your current relationship will be really tested a few years down the road. This will be a more serious and long-term test but for now the tests are minor.
This is also a year for more friendships and group activities. Many of the new friendships you're making this year will be related to your career. These are people who are either involved in your career or whom you meet as you pursue your career goals. These people seem supportive of your career and can help you. There are friendships with the 'high and mighty', with bosses, elders, and people of higher status than you. Socially, you're up there in the stratosphere.
Social activity seems most frenetic from October 23rd to December 21st. You seem more socially aggressive during this period. Your spouse or partner is very much into moneymaking and finance and these interests merge nicely with your own.
The love life or marriage of a child is highly unstable. Marriage is not advisable for a few years. He or she is attracting love, has good self-esteem and seems prosperous but affections are too volatile now. Grandchildren of marriageable age are actively and calculatedly seeking mates. They have good opportunities. They need to overcome fear and excess caution.
Siblings have good marriage opportunities now. Already married siblings are feeling the weight of the relationship the burdens are heavy.
Taureans working towards a second marriage have good opportunities this year. They should look close to home, in the neighbourhood. Those working towards a third marriage have an exciting social life but marriage is not likely nor is it advisable.
GEMINI - 22nd May to 21st June
As mentioned, your love and social life have been undergoing deep and transformative changes for many years now. This process will continue for many more years. In order to transform something, you first have to delve deeply into it way beneath the surface of things. You need to explore your attitudes, fears and desires when it comes to love. You need to go through the history of your love life, going back to childhood and even further, into past lives. You are beginning to see that it was always you who created your love situation whether it was happy or painful and once this knowledge is gained, you will see how you can recreate a new love and social situation that is more in line with what you really want and need.
Your past pains are merely doorways to deeper knowledge and understanding. They were signals of mistakes made, which can now be corrected.
Many of you are analysing and perhaps over analysing present relationships. As mentioned, you are as much concerned with having a healthy relationship as with your physical health. You search for impurities so you can root them out. This is a wonderful trait and will lead to increased happiness both in the present love situation and in the future but you need to be careful not to overdo this. Most lovers want to have fun and enjoy the relationship as it is while you might not even be there with the person, you're in your mind, analysing and weighing things up. You run the risk of not enjoying whatever you do have.
A current relationship is in crisis, perhaps for this reason. Perhaps there is concern about the health of your spouse or impurities in the relationship. Work and work demands are also testing the relationship. Many relationships will not make it this year. True love and commitment will survive everything but weaknesses in the current relationship are coming out to be dealt with.
In spite of all this, love prospects are bright in the year ahead. There is a method behind the madness, an agenda behind the seeming social chaos. Your Love Planet will change Signs this year. It moves from hypercritical Virgo to romantic Libra. It moves from the 4th House to the fun loving 5th House. The trials and tribulations of love are leading to new and happier experiences. Marriages that survive the testing become renewed almost honeymoon like. Divorcees find new and happy love. The whole tenor and tone of your love life changes and for the better.
Singles (those who have never married) have the best of both worlds this year. They have many opportunities for either committed or uncommitted love. The choice is theirs. Even if they choose commitment, it will all be very honeymoonish.
Romantic opportunities come close to home, perhaps from or through family members, perhaps with some old flame from the past. When your Love Planet is in the 4th House of the Past, it often brings romance with an old unrequited flame, or with someone who is just like this person in both appearance and attitude. After September 25th love opportunities will come from the usual places, parties, entertainments, resorts, weddings, or while you pursue leisure activities.
Those working towards a second marriage also have good opportunity in the coming year. Someone of high status perhaps a boss or supervisor is coming into the picture. Romantic opportunity comes as you pursue career goals. Your lover is helping your career. Marriage is a powerful career move.
Those working towards a third marriage have a status quo year. Children and grandchildren of marriageable age have a status-quo year. Singles will tend to stay single and marrieds will tend to stay married.
CANCER - 22nd June to 23rd July
Though your 7th House of Love and Marriage is mostly empty this year, love and romance are definitely priorities and on the cards. Saturn, your Love Planet is now in your own Sign and House. Love blooms. For singles there are marriage opportunities.
With Saturn as your Love Planet you are not likely to rush into anything. You will let love grow and develop naturally. You know that marriage is a serious thing and you want to be sure everything is right before you enter into it.
When the Love Planet is in your own Sign and House, it shows that love is pursuing you. Nothing special you need to do except show up. In fact, it is practically impossible to avoid love this year. Your lover or spouse is going way out of his or her way to please you. He or she seems totally devoted to our interests and needs. He or she is on your side 100 percent.
You are especially aware of the duties and responsibilities involved with love this year. Love is not mere sensuous emotion and flowery sentiment. It is a sense of duty to the beloved and vice versa. These duties can keep both of you well occupied in the year ahead but again remember the injunctions about your energy. If you are weak or ill, you won't be able to do your duty.
Your lover is someone established, perhaps older. Someone serious. Looks like a corporate type, a manager or executive. This person (or perhaps the family of this person) is of high status relative to you. Perhaps, through over devotion and from the highest of motives, he or she will try to over manage' or micro-manage you. This could create some tension.
Marriage this year looks like a good career move, too. Your overall status in life and in society is elevated due to this partnership. The relationship seems 'staid' but safe and secure.
Those working towards a second marriage have completely opposite tendencies. Their love lives seem very unstable. Anything can happen at any time. Romance strikes like a lightning flash but it can end suddenly too. Affections change suddenly and mysteriously both for you and your lover. I can see serial relationships for years to come. Marriage might not be advisable at this time. You're playing the field and experimenting. You are also attracting lovers who feel the same way. Still, there's a lot of fun and romantic excitement happening. The highs will be very high but the crashes can be ultra-low.
Those working towards a third marriage have a status quo year. Singles will tend to stay single. Marrieds will tend to stay married. Those working towards a fourth marriage have wonderful aspects. A marriage opportunity is there and likely to happen.
LEO - 24th July to 23rd August
The love aspects began changing last year as the Love Planet flirted with the Sign of Pisces, sometimes moving forward into it and sometimes moving backwards to the past. This pretty much describes how you felt about love this past year. Should I launch out into the new? Should I say with what I know? Should I go with this new person? Should I stick with what I have? This year, the decision is made. You are launching out into the new. Love attitudes and needs are also changing dramatically. For many years you craved mere excitement and change. Your love life was a giant soap opera with new episodes weekly. In truth, you liked it that way. Now, with the Love Planet's move into your 8th House and the Sign of Pisces, we may start to see more stability here. Definitely, love is becoming more spiritual. First off, you are looking for a more spiritual connection with your lover. Second, you are seeing romance as part of your spiritual path. With the Love Planet in the 8th House, love is not just about a good time but is a way through which you and your lover are going to transform yourselves, re-invent yourselves into the people that you want to be. You are attracting lovers or partners who have these same interests.
Transformation includes many areas. The poor person who wants to become wealthy must transform from within. The overweight or addicted person who wants to overcome these things must transform from within. The person of low status who wants a higher status must transform from within. Usually it is difficult to achieve these things alone. We need outside help. People who understand the process and know how to co-operate with it. These people are coming to you through your social life. They can appear as friends but more likely as lovers or partners. Marriage itself is one of the great transforming experiences. It's as if the individual dies and a new sense of 'we' or 'us', the partnership, the relationship is born. Many Leos will marry in the years ahead.
Marriage is more recommendable than it has been for many, many years. The wandering is over. The experiments have all been performed. Time to settle down.
Sex and physical intimacy is always an important part of any love relationship but for you it seems even more important, perhaps the most important part. This will continue for many more years. The hot sexual chemistry will keep you and your beloved together as you make the exciting but explosive journey of transformation.
Both you and your lover seem very interested in finance but for different reasons. Your lover seems interested in moneymaking, a big priority, for many years to come. You are interested in that the more money your lover or spouse makes, the greater will be his or her generosity towards you.
Leos who are working towards a second marriage have a status-quo year. Marrieds will tend to stay married and singles will tend to stay single. The same is true for those working towards a third marriage.
Children of marriageable age have a status-quo year. Marriage might not be recommendable at this time, as there is much personal transformation going on with them. Grandchildren of marriageable age have wonderful marriage aspects. They will either marry or enter into a significant relationship later on in the year.
VIRGO - 24th August to 23rd September
Your 7th House of Love and Social Relationships becomes an important House of Power this year and for many years to come. As mentioned, this is a most exciting area of life but also very unstable. Both marriages and divorces could happen now. The whole social circle is being shaken up. Old patterns are breaking up and new ones are forming.
If you have been in a social rut, now you're breaking out of it and in a very dramatic way.
In many cases, we see an almost total break with tradition and with the past. You're going your own way. You seem to disregard completely all that you have ever been taught about love and relationships whether this teaching came from your parents, teachers or society. You are going to find out for yourself. You are going to learn about love through trial and error and while you will make a few mistakes for they are inevitable, you will also experience many successes, many highs and many breakthroughs in love.
It's as if you want total freedom in love. You want to be able to love whom you want, when you want. You don't want to be tied down and while many of you might marry in the years ahead, the advisability of this is in question.
Changes in affection, sudden and swift are likely these days. These changes are as bewildering to you as they are to your lover or partner. You can be in love one minute and in contempt the next and then back in love again. The more likely scenario is serial love affairs, which are like marriages.
So, you are in a period of social experimentation. Enjoy it for what it is. Don't get stuck in any one experience for long. Don't weep when an angel leaves, for right behind is the archangel.
The best kind of relationship would be where change and experimentation can happen within the relationship but this is rare.
Love comes suddenly and out of the blue this year. You never know when it will strike. You never know when it will leave. Always enjoy the moment. You are very much an at-first-sight type of person now.
Scientists, doctors, health professionals and astrologers, spiritual and creative types, allure you. Romantic opportunities can happen in the usual places like parties, weddings and social gatherings and also in the work place or doctors' surgery. Office romances are likely. Love can find you as you pursue your normal health goals or with people who are involved in your health.
Long-married Virgos will have a crisis in their relationship. Those involved in a long-term love relationships, likewise. Your most important and happiest social periods will be from January 14th to March 20th, from May 21st to July 22nd, and from September 22nd to November 21st.
LIBRA - 24th September to 23rd October
Libras are always interested in love and romance but this year less so than usual. Your 7th House is not a House of Power this year. You have more freedom and latitude in this department. You have the opportunity to shape this area, as you will. Usually, the status quo prevails. Marrieds tend to stay married and singles tend to stay single. I read this as contentment with things as they are. Everything is OK so there is no need to make any major changes.
Your 11th House of Friends is also empty this year (only the short-term planets will move through and only briefly). This too shows a status-quo year. Everything is OK and friendships will more or less continue as they have been.
On September 25th, Jupiter will move into your own Sign of Libra. This means a more romantic period for the world in general but for you, I read this as more romance within your current relationship.
Mars is your Love Planet and he will move through nine of the 12 Signs and Houses of your Horoscope in the year ahead. He will not tarry in any Sign or House for too long. This shows that romantic opportunities will come in a variety of ways this year. The needs and attitudes in love will shift periodically. We (You and I.) will deal with these issues in the monthly forecasts.
A Solar Eclipse on April 19th will test the current marriage or relationship but this will not affect all Libras, only those born from October 10th to October 23rd.
Libras working towards a second marriage have a status quo year. If they are married they will probably stay married and if single they will stay single. Those working towards a third marriage likewise but those working towards a fourth marriage have wonderful opportunities happening after September 25. This could be with a neighbour (perhaps a new neighbour) or someone involved in your educational life and interests.
One of your parents (or parent figures) is much more socially aggressive this year. He or she is reaching out to others, conducting a charm offensive, working to make new friends and to attract love. These efforts seem to bear fruit.
Children of marriageable age have a status-quo love year. They are very idealistic about love and perhaps there are few humans who can live up to their standards.
Grandchildren of marriageable age are having crises in their relationships. If married, the marriage is in trouble. If single, the current relationship is in crisis. They are in the process of transforming their love attitudes now and when this happens, current relationships get destabilised.
SCORPIO - 24th October to 22nd November
Your 7th House of Love and Marriage is not a House of Power this year. You have great freedom to shape this area, as you will. The Cosmos doesn't push you one-way or the other. Usually this shows a status-quo type of year. Singles will tend to remain single and marrieds will tend to remain married.
Though your 7th House is not that important, the North Node of the Moon in this House shows that it's an area that will bring you fulfilment. If you are married, work to bring more romance into the marriage. Singles should still seek serious relationships and improve their social skills.
The main social activity this year is in the realm of friendships. This looks happy and exciting. Your social circle will expand. New and significant friends are coming into your life. You benefit both socially and materially from joining organizations and clubs. Your new friends bring both joy and financial opportunity. You are learning that wealth is not just money in the bank and a fat stock portfolio, wealth of friendships is also wealth.
Those working towards a first marriage have a status-quo year. Those working towards a second marriage are facing a crisis. If you are in your second marriage, the marriage is being tested, reordered, restructured, reorganised. It may or may not survive the tests. Only true love and a shared purpose will survive. Those looking to marry for the second time need patience this year. The aspects don't look auspicious for this. Overcoming fear is the main problem but those working towards a third marriage have wonderful aspects. Wedding bells can definitely ring. The person seems wealthy and educated and interested in supporting your financial goals. You could meet this person as you pursue your financial goals, perhaps at the bank, the broker's office at work. This is a person who could be involved (already) in your financial life in some way.
Singles will have opportunity to meet a special someone from March 5th to May 20th. Your social life is very active then but Venus, your Love Planet, will go retrograde from May 17th to June 29th. Can this budding affair survive? Venus retrograde doesn't stop love from happening but delays things and sometimes throws in minor annoyances. It is a time for rethinking and re-evaluating love relationships and many a relationship doesn't survive this re-evaluation (on the other hand, many do).
Scorpios who have children of marriageable age may hear wedding bells this year, too. It might not be a marriage in the legal sense but like a marriage for practical purposes. These children have excellent social aspects in general. The major problem in love for them is their intense need for personal freedom. They need to understand that a relationship, by definition, means a limitation of personal freedom. This will be a tough pill for them to swallow.
Grandchildren of marriageable age have a status-quo year. They are more serious and ambitious these days but marriage doesn't seem on the cards.
SAGITTARIUS - 23rd November to 21st December
As mentioned, your love life is much improved over the past few years but your 7th House of Love and Marriage is not a House of Power this year. Though you have more social freedom, you lack the interest. The urge, the fire in the belly for marriage or a serious relationship is absent. In many cases, this absence is coming from the 'state of fulfilment'. You have what you want and you don't have any more desire. When you eat that huge slab of chocolate cake, your desire has been fulfilled and is 'no more'. So, from a romantic perspective, it is a status-quo year where marrieds will tend to stay married and singles will tend to stay single.
Friendships are much more interesting and important than romance this year especially after September 25th. You are reaching out to make new friends. You are the aggressor. You are taking the bull by the horns and developing your friendships and you will have success. The main challenges with friends are financial conflicts or disagreements or perhaps your pursuit of friendships distracts you from financial goals. Perhaps financial barriers prevent you from joining this or that group or organisation or from participating in certain group activities. You will have to balance these two areas.
Mercury is your Love Planet and is a fast-moving planet. He will move through all the Signs and Houses of your Solar Horoscope in the year ahead. Love and romantic opportunity can come to you in a variety of ways. We will discuss these in the monthly forecasts.
Those of you working towards a first or second marriage have a status-quo year but those working towards a third marriage have wonderful opportunities after September 25th. A third marriage is likely. This could also be a significant relationship that is like a marriage.
Again, the main obstruction seems to be financial. Those working towards a fourth marriage or involved in a fourth marriage are probably facing crisis in the relationship. Much deep change is going on. Love attitudes are changing. Impurities in your love attitudes or in the actual relationship are coming out for cleansing.
A parent or parent figure has a banner social year. Marriage or a significant relationship could definitely happen. The only barrier is that the need for personal freedom is so intense that they may not want to be 'tied down' and committed. Serious love would be unstable.
Children of marriageable age will start meeting significant others after September 25th. Marriage is likely here, too and their social life in general seems more stable. There is a need to balance career with the love life and it won't be so easy to do that.
The love life of grandchildren of marriageable age is becoming more stable in the year ahead. Marriage is more probable now than it has been for a few years. There is a need for a spiritually orientated relationship.
CAPRICORN - 22nd December to 20th January
As mentioned, this is a strong social year. Your 7th House is strong. Your own Ruling Planet, Saturn, occupies it.
A person's Ruling Planet is always considered a positive influence on the affairs of the House in question. This is a very positive love message. Wedding bells or serious relationships can easily happen now. You are taking the initiative both in love and with friends. You are going out there looking for Mr or Ms Right. If you like someone, they are sure to know about it. You are not sitting around at home waiting for the phone to ring. Many of you are taking the initiative by organising social outings or perhaps hosting parties. You enjoy bringing people together these days.
The aggressiveness of a Capricorn will never match that of an Aries or a Leo but for you, this is aggressive. Always very cautious about everything, always looking at the risks and the downside of what could happen, your social aggressiveness will happen with the minimum of personal risk. Still, a little fearlessness in love would be a wonderful trait to develop in the year ahead.
Your overall social popularity is increasing this year, too. This is because you are going way out of your way to please others and doing your best to cultivate their good graces.
The danger with this position especially for the younger Caps is the loss of one's centre, one's core ethics and beliefs. Sometimes, the desire for social acceptance will make people go against what they really believe inside. They would rather be 'popular' than right and can be led into regrettable behaviour.
Those of you working towards a second marriage also have wonderful aspects in the year ahead. A very serious opportunity or prospect is already there. This person seems philanthropic and spiritual perhaps in the health profession, perhaps in the science and technology field. The relationship will probably start as a friendship and develop from there.
Those in or working towards a third marriage have a status quo year though things are much easier and harmonious than they've been for the past two years. Marrieds will tend to stay married and singles will tend to stay single. The same is true for those working towards a fourth marriage.
Friendships in general are happy. Your social circle is expanding. You are having more fun doing things in groups. New and important friends are coming into the picture.
Children of marriageable age have a status quo year though important romantic decisions will be forced by the Lunar Eclipse of May and perhaps by the one on October 28th.
Grandchildren of marriageable age are having a banner year both socially and financially. They seem very happy. They are having serial love affairs and playing the field but stable long-term relationships are not likely. They are enjoying the quest rather than the result of the quest.
AQUARIUS - 21st January to 19th February
Your 7th House of Love, Romance, Marriage and Social Activities is not a House of Power this year, Aquarius. Since last year was a banner love year, I read this as a good sign. Most of you are satisfied with the love life that you have and have no need to make drastic changes or give this area undue attention. The tendency will be to the status quo. Marrieds will stay married and singles will stay single. Those involved in serious relationships will continue in these relationships.
Life is a circle. The Native Americans call it a 'sacred hoop'. Different areas of life become more important in different years. This year is more of a money and career year than a love year. Of course you will have a social life but it's less of a priority these days.
Those of you born late in the Sign (from approximately February 5th to February 19th) still have wonderful social and love aspects and could still marry or enter into a significant relationship. New and significant friends are still coming into the picture.
Friendship is more important this year than love and romance. Now, Aquarians are always into friendships but this year even more so. Your 11th House is strong and has been strong for many years now. This whole area of life is undergoing vast transformation and this process is continuing in the year ahead. Old friendships are dying and new ones are being born. Old social attitudes are dying and new attitudes are being born. You are delving deeply into the meaning of friendship and weeding out bad or false attitudes.
Love and social activities will be most active from July 22nd to August 22nd and from September 6th to October 3rd. Those working towards a second marriage have wonderful love aspects after September 25th, Wedding bells could ring but even if not, this new relationship will be like a marriage. This relationship will start out as a friendship and evolve into something more. You could meet this person through an organisation you belong to, at school or at church, temple, synagogue, mosque or ashram.
Those in a third marriage are facing a crisis in their relationship. Its survival depends on the depth of your commitment to each other. Those looking to marry for a third time could have a few false starts.
Children of marriageable age are having a stormy love life this year. Here, too, I see great change, upheaval and a revamping of love attitudes and needs. Through the experience of love they are learning, as if by looking into a mirror what in themselves needs to be changed.
Grandchildren of marriageable age are prospering and having fun but marriage doesn't seem on the horizon.
PISCES - 20th February to 20th March
As mentioned, Jupiter's transit through your 7th House of Love and Marriage is showing great social expansion, a happy (and profitable) social life and marriage or marriage opportunities in the year ahead.
Marriage or a serious relationship is definitely there for you but the question is whether it is advisable. Uranus in your 1st House is definitely complicating your social life for it gives great urges for 'personal freedom'. It gives a dislike for commitment and often it makes the personal and social life unstable. Hard to manage a serious relationship if you are never in one place for too long and don't know where you'll be from month to month or week to week. Difficult to manage a serious relationship when you are constantly changing your image and self -definition and upgrading to new and better models of you. The partner might have fallen in love with one version but then finds that he or she is very soon dealing with a whole other version!
In many cases, this will indicate serial love affairs and serious ones. In other cases, it will show one relationship but with many ups and downs. Those involved romantically with a Pisces should expect much change but also much excitement.
In many cases, these contradictory tendencies (personal freedom, breaking out and the desire for a serious relationship) are showing the end of one long-term relationship and the beginning of a new one. Difficult choices have to be made this year. Do you opt for personal freedom and let go of your career? Do you let go of committed love or perhaps you will choose career and love and let go of some personal freedom.
This year, you are mixing with the high and the mighty with people of prestige and power, with people who are above you in social or professional status. In fact, your new relationship seems to be with someone very prominent could be a boss at work or someone high on the social scale.
People of wealth and power, people who can help your career and finances, allure you romantically. Marriage could be seen as a 'career move' in the year ahead, a short cut to the top.
Since Mercury is your Love Planet and he is very fast-moving, romance and romantic opportunity can come to you in a variety of ways and means. It all depends where Mercury is on any given day and the kinds of aspects that he receives. We will cover these short-term trends in the monthly forecasts.
Though you will have friends and will be involved with friends in the coming year, this is not your main focus. Love and romance are the main interests. Those involved in a second marriage or who are working towards a second marriage are experiencing crisis in their relationship. The issues behind the crisis are as described personal freedom versus career and commitment.
Those into or working towards a third marriage have an easier time but things are more status quo. Marrieds will stay married and singles will stay single.
The marriage of parent or parent figures seems in crisis but this has been going on for a long time.
Children of marriageable age can hear wedding bells this year. Someone from a good and old family is chasing them. Love pursues them. Grandchildren of marriageable age have a status-quo year.
