Themes: career, work responsibilities, new friendships.
Pluto moved into Capricorn on November 26th 2008 and stays there for the next sixteen years. This means it will be transiting your tenth house sector of career, public reputation and life destiny. It is forcing you to take a closer look at your career – you need to clear the decks of anything that is no longer working for you and create more of a sense of purpose in your life. You are beginning a long-term process of uprooting and rebuilding nearly everything you have constructed in your life so far. This could involve home, family, relationships of all kinds and your goals for the future. You are probably coming to a point where you realise that the path you are on is either not fulfilling, not challenging enough for you, or you feel overwhelmed with too many problems that seem like they will never end. Something inside you craves for more usage of your deepest resources or talents. It is as if you feel that only part of your life potential is activated, and you seriously desire a more completely engaging life. You may be in danger of feeling bored or trapped. This is an uncomfortable feeling for you, because your basic nature is adventurous, and if you are bored or trapped, there is no telling what you might do on an impulse if it is strong enough.
Jupiter went into Aquarius on January 5th 2009 for the next year, which falls in your eleventh house. This is all about friendships, dreams and wishes which will be a big focus for you in the coming year. There will be lots of new friends who will expand your goals and will bring new opportunities to you. Mars goes into Aquarius in February until mid March 2009 and will be the catalyst for you to take action in all areas of your life.
Jupiter aligns with Neptune in Aquarius during 2009. Neptune deals with faith, hope, creative aspiration, film, the arts and healing. This brings hope to your eleventh house, making your dreams possible. However, it can also bring confusion, so it is important that you keep your wits about you and make sure you discern between true friends and those who are fair-weather friends who will only be with you during the good times.
Saturn in Virgo is in your sixth house until October 2009. This means you need to focus on your job skills and you may have to learn new skills. You will also need to be more focused. Saturn goes into Libra on October 29th 2009 for two and a half years. It is in the opposite sign to Aries, so the focus will be not as strongly on your job, but more on your relationships. Any relationships that are difficult – business and personal relationships – will either have to end, or you will have to work hard at them. Many will divorce, or on the other end of the scale, many of you will commit to a marriage. If you have been alone and consumed with your work, Saturn will bring more of your attention to your relationships. Saturn was in Aries about fifteen years ago which brought about a more inward cycle for you. From October 2009 it will be time to get out into the world and to transform your career and business. As the year progresses, you are going to manifest your goals or at least start to see that they are possible.
With Saturn in your sixth house, it is important that you keep up with your health maintenance and you regularly exercise and eat well. It is not a time to overindulge or to neglect your daily regime.
For the first nine months of the year, it is vital that you try to find out exactly what you want to do with your life.
In relationships, your social scene will expand, but make sure that you don’t get serious too quickly. Give yourself time and make sure you are really ready if someone wants a more committed relationship. Aries is not a sign that likes to lose its independence, so it is better to start with a friendship and to stay on that level until you are sure that you want further involvement.
