Aries in Love

Arians have a pioneering spirit when it comes to affairs of the heart, and a rather naive approach to relationships generally. You learn by experience, slowly: it takes many tangos with Mr Wrong before you realize mother was right all along - marry in haste, repent at leisure. Your passions are easily ignited and just as quickly extinguished, sometimes because familiarity and routine breed disinterest but most often because the thunderbolt of love blinded you to the fact that your Prince Charming had webbed feet. Yes, you are hot-blooded, warm-hearted, giving and highly committed, but not only would you save yourself serious disappointment by taking the time to get to know someone properly but you would also benefit from allowing a guy discover for himself all your manifold virtues. He really doesn't need a daily bulletin of your assets. Then, there's your talent for leadership - or shall we just call it what it really is, bossiness. As my lovely Gemini husband said in exasperation to his Aries wife the other day, 'I'm simply not used to having my life run for me by a five foot two inch woman'.

Love and relationships improve with age, fortunately, but almost always after one or two painful excursions to the divorce court. Once you have discovered what a terrific person you are, and that you can manage perfectly well on your own, you no longer feel the need to sweep each and every man you meet off his feet, just to prove to him and the world what a catch you are. You also learn, by trial and error, that it is better to let the guy kill dragons for you, not the other way around. And the good thing is, that by the time other women's idea of fun is joining the knitting circle in the old-age home, you'll be heading off to the Amazon with your much younger man who simply adores you!


The Arian Man

The Aries guy is always at his best at the start of the relationship. He's terribly keen to impress you and his passion will convince you that you're the only one for him. And you are - for the time being. Mr Aries, like Mr Gemini and Sagittarius has a short attention span. To keep him hot on your trot to the altar, and for evermore, be mysterious and unavailable. This man loves practical, sensible, prudent and classy women. He is fun to be with, a confident and innovative partner, generous - actually, a bit of a spendthrift - but he needs enormous amounts of ego-massage to keep him happy and stable.


Who's For You

Aries is attracted to partners who also belong to the Cardinal signs, and these, besides Aries with whom you share a happy but bumpy ride are: Capricorn, Cancer and Libra. The Capricorn male adores your energy and vitality while you love his strength and reserve, his practicality and his consistency. The sexual chemistry between you can be fantastic: the trouble is, in the long run the celestial Goat can become rather boring and he may try to over-control, and certainly criticise you. Mr Cancer loves your confidence and your wild streak while you love all that deep emotion and sensuous love-making. Once the honeymoon is over however, the Cancerian male could alienate you with his moods and silences. Libran men are an excellent match and definitely provide balance for you. The love affair can go on and on and on. Gemini and Aquarius are two more signs that go well with Aries. You'll never be bored with either of these two airy men - life will be full of adventure, experiment and fun.

Life Love Money The Year Ahead for Aries

Life and astrology are akin to a game of snakes and ladders: you go up some wonderful ladders and down some dreary snakes, but history never exactly repeats itself. Saturn’s new position in the area of career and life goals could represent both a ladder and a serpent, as you will surely discover over the next two plus years. It is time to get serious about where you’re headed in life and build a solid a secure future for yourself. Late March, late June and late September are make or break points. The eclipses of the year (31 January, 15 February, 27 July, 11 August) fall on the axis of creativity and collaboration: some Arians will form new business alliances and entrepreneurial projects while others could be adding to their family. 2018 is not a year to cut corners or to leave anything to chance. It’s a head-down-reality-first kind of year.

With Saturn in pride of place you’ll want to be sure you have a serious commitment from a partner. Gone are the days of “let’s just see how it goes…”. To this end you’ll be more discerning in your choice of new partners and concerned should a long-term partner not be prepared to name the day. However, be careful of jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire, especially in August. If you are ready to exit a marriage, the financial cost could be high, so do your homework before issuing papers! Venus will supercharge the area of relating in August and November and together with March these are premium periods for meeting someone new or celebrating a wedding. There is also an aura of long lost loves surrounding affairs of the heart: a rematch for some; closure and completion for others.

Forget about being the sprinter of the zodiac: you’re training for the marathon now. There are no quick fixes and no free lunches. Some Arians will see their stock rise, both in terms of their career status and income while others will experience struggle and rejection. Keep on keeping on, Aries: the name of the game is survival of the fittest, so do what you have to do – take a lesser position, cut your costs and hone your talents - your day will come. May is a vital month for finances – an unexpected windfall for some, a loss of income for others. Hence the advice to keep your overheads low. Fortunately, Jupiter will be in a key money area until early November, so 2018 is a great year to find backing for entrepreneurial ventures and going into partnership is highly recommended.
