Are you in your battle gear? If you are, take it off immediately. The arms with which you need to fight any opposition this week are pragmatism and charm. And patience; loads of patience. Then again, what you may perceive as opposition could instead be a spur to your ambitions and desires. There could be changes to your schedule and unexpected results from your efforts, but this is not necessarily a bad thing: you will benefit from a change of view and there may be a greater purpose behind any rejections or disappointments.
What you don’t want to do is alienate someone who could be a passionate supporter.

The new Zodiac Mug from Penny Thornton makes the perfect gift for the Aries in your life. The mugs have an individual phrase printed on the inside of the rim to match each of the Sun signs.
Let me be frank; it's my way or the highway
Usually at this time of year you should be on something of a retreat, recharging your physical and emotional batteries in preparation for the Sun’s entry into your sign (20th). However, with Venus and Mercury on a mission to get you noticed, early nights and spa-weekends are likely to be thin on the ground. It may be that someone who rejected you or an opportunity that you ignored reappears, and this time the outcome could be very different. And for many Arians romance and happy-ever-afterwards are part of the package. Not everything is as straight-forward as you would like it to be, though and you may have to be patient with a situation that continues to drag its heels. Nonetheless, you are on the way up.
Show me an Aries that hasn’t fallen off the pinnacle of its high expectations recently and I’ll reveal someone living on borrowed time. These past few years have taught most of you the value of persistence and the virtue of facing a defeat with dignity. What hopefully has not happened is that you have become so gun-shy, you’re settling for the slow lane of life and giving up on your ambitions.
With Jupiter in your opposite sign until mid-October you now have a real chance of succeeding where once you failed and of finding great happiness.
Put those lessons into practice though: don’t give your pearls to swine and refuse any offer that promises a quick return for your investment. February starts the ball rolling with an unexpected stroke of good fortune and your star will be shining bright until the end of the year.
Love and relationships
Marriage is on the horizon for many Arians and this is certainly the year to partner up with people whether for love, money or shared passions. Venus enters your sign on 3rd February and will remain there (on and off) until early June, sprinkling you with fairy dust and generally putting you in the right place at the right time.
And if you’re looking for your special day, how about 19th May? Of course, there’s no such thing as perfect, and if Uranus and Pluto are on your case (8th-16th April birthdays in particular) relationships begin and end suddenly and partners will tend to be the source of difficulty.
The full moon of 11th April is one point at which a relationship stands or falls, the second week of October another. Nevertheless, this is your year to right a whole lot of romantic wrongs.
Work, life goals and finance
Make the most of these next twelve months in terms of building your career and forging strong business connections because when Saturn enters the zone of career and life-direction (December) you need to be in a strong position. Ignore deep problems at work; fail to put in all the hours; rest on your laurels, and 2018 is going to be difficult.
Take the long view, both in terms of money and work. Broaden your horizons by reaching out to people in distant places and adding to your skills and credentials.
Assume a rainy day is coming; keep spending down, down-size and be conservative in your expectations. Early March is the time to take a risk and events in early August could boost your ego and your bank account .
Do not assume everyone thinks like you. Just because you lay your cards on the table doesn’t mean other people will do the same. In a community of liars the currency of truth has no value. And you would do well to remember this.
It may go against your entire raison d’etre but if you want to succeed, you’re going to have to be less forthcoming and savvier about people’s motives and ethos.
Strike a hard bargain, whether you’re selling/purchasing a property, negotiating a salary or entering a relationship. Value yourself. Protect your assets. Treat every setback as an opportunity .
