The days are getting shorter and the dark nights sure can feel longer! The Sun moves through Scorpio, Sagittarius, and at winter solstice we usher in the Capricorn season. Instinctively, we pull our energies inwards to regroup and recharge ourselves as the calendar year draws to a close. Jupiter’s recent move into Libra helps assists us to better negotiate our social contracts with others, be they old or new agreements. It’s time to revisit our personal moral standards and our codes of conduct. We crave harmony and mutually beneficial relations with our neighbourhoods, our workmates, and our families. Give some thought to the important relationships in your world. Who influences you, and who you do you influence?
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This is an exciting time of year for you, Aries. Jupiter sits in air sign Libra (opposite your sign on the zodiac wheel) and this amplifies your spirited nature. This is a good time to bounce your ideas and aspirations off of others, as their feedback will be helpful. Someone you respect, such as a boss, a teacher, or a superior is likely to give you some very valuable advice. Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, move on this. You benefit from partnerships and mutually beneficial agreements with others now (you might see your bank account next year from the deals you’re making now). Unusual or interesting people might cross your path now. Increased dealings with foreign countries, travel, media, publishing, and the law will keep you on your toes.
