This is going to be a HOT year for you! Uranus goes into your sign in March of this year and this only happens once in every 84 years. It is going to be there for seven years which indicates a whole new cycle beginning for you with a great deal of changes ahead.
Career and Money
Your work will be erratic, your finances will be erratic, how you feel about yourself will be changeable, but nonetheless you will experience a feeling of greater self confidence this year. There will be many highs and lows regarding your work and your finances. On the positive side, there are opportunities to change and grow in new directions. Whether it works out or not depends on whether you can identify which opportunities have potential and which ones are hyped-up and exaggerated. You need to determine the future possibilities and if something has promise, you have to be committed to making it grow. If you don’t work hard and remain focused, you may blow what could have turned into a good long-term opportunity for you.
You have to watch out that you don’t become too overbearing, especially when Mars is in your sign from beginning April to mid May. You will have a real boost of energy at that time, but watch out that you don’t get into arguments with people as you are going to “know” you are in the right.
This is a time when you will be thinking of freedom, of breaking out of boundaries and restrictions in your life. Others may criticise your behaviour saying that you are being pointlessly rebellious, but you will feel the need to free yourself from anyone or any situation where you feel restricted. You will have the urge to break out once and for all. This could lead to conflicts in the workplace, so choose your battles carefully.
It’s a wonderful time to be innovative. You will have an abundance of new ideas that are beyond anything you could ever have imagined. Try to think outside the box. Uranus rules Aquarius, so there will be this Aquarian feel to you where you are a bit quirky – you are a bit odd – you are changing – there’s so much about you that others won’t recognise any more. Don’t be afraid of it. This Uranian energy is shaking up your world. It will get rid of all the things in your life that have held you back for so long. And it will probably feel uncomfortable, but Jupiter is in your sign as well from January 24th until June 4th and it will be a time to open up to new beginnings and a possible new start in your career
You need to take the power back in your career, in what you want to do with your life. If you are feeling controlled or manipulated in your workplace, you will feel the need to break out of this. For many of you this will be time of exploration, of finding out what it really is you want to do with your life, how you want to make your mark in the world. Finding work where you don’t feel quashed and held down but where you feel in control of what it is you are doing.
You may lose your job and you will have to reinvent yourself in new, creative ways. Don’t be frightened about these powerful transits because they are going to push you out into so many new areas that it can be the most exciting thing that has ever happened to you.
You will probably feel unsettled, restless and impatient. You will be wondering why things aren’t moving ahead much faster for you, but it may have little to do with you and more to do with the state of the economy. You may be highly qualified in what you do, but companies may just be cutting back. So you will find yourself having to reinvent yourself over and over again. Try to see it as an adventure rather than an ordeal.
This year can be very favourable for your finances, but there could be a challenge in terms of job satisfaction. Many of you will hop from job to job, from contract to contract and not find any continuity in what you are doing. Try to see this as a year of many opportunities and for those of you who are self employed this could be a time of real growth. It’s also a good time to start your own business, even on a very small scale, as it could grow in the years to come into something very successful. There will be some wonderful opportunities financially for you this year if you will go outside your comfort zone and explore new and ingenious ways of making money.
You may experience the parting of ways from people who have been an important part of your life for a long time. It may lead to moments of sadness and even the fear of abandonment, as if something has been torn away from deep inside of you. It is all part of this process of reinventing your life. It will happen in your personal and your professional life. Old ones depart and new ones come in. You are being reborn in all ways.
It may be a year of separations - the end of a relationship, a partnership, a marriage. Particularly if that partner doesn’t see you in this new light and doesn’t encourage you be the new you. If they allow you to grow and support you, then this can be a wonderful time and you can come together stronger than ever. But for many of you this will be disruptive and you may find that certain relationships will end during this period.
You will also need to choose your friends carefully and wisely. You may not be seeing the relationship you have with your friends clearly. You may be helping them out too much. They may have become dependent on you. It may be time to allow these friends to dissolve out of your life. This will give the opportunity for new friends to come in with whom you share more common interests and with whom you can connect deeply. Some of the friends around you are not for your highest good and they may be taking too much from you.
You will also be looking at the relationship you have with yourself and finding out more about your emotional needs. You have a tendency to rush into relationships and then regret them some time later. This year, people will come into your life who look very exciting and you are best advised to force yourself to go slowly and get to know the person better before you open yourself up emotionally or even financially to them.
All year you are under Saturn influences in your relationships. If you can be honest and real, then serious relationships that you treasure and value can grow even stronger. Don’t despair, the relationships that are meant to endure will, and those that are holding you back will go out of your life. You may need to be alone for a while. You may even be in a relationship and feel isolated because your partner doesn’t connect with you on a deep emotional level.
Overall, there will be plenty of opportunities to meet new people and to make new friends. Take the time to go to social events, seminars, workshops or any adventures where you can meet new people who may become important in your life. Your charisma is very high this year, so make the most of it!
This should be a good year for you in terms of energy. You will have to watch out that you don’t overdo things and try to burn the candle at both ends. Make sure you keep up with regular exercise or you might put on weight. You may experience stress in the workplace, so be sure that you get enough rest and time out to wind down. Sometimes you have difficulty sleeping when your nerves are all wound up. Try to introduce regular meditation or yoga or even just listen to soothing music so that your body can achieve deep relaxation.
