Aries are known as the pioneers of the zodiac – you go where others fear to tread – and this week is all about pioneering new starts. A new moon opens up new pathways, although, as always, this implies roads must also run out. Should you receive an offer of some description it is likely to involve the erosion of an aspect of your existence.
This may well be a welcome prospect, but before you put your signature on paper make sure you are completely comfortable with the idea that it will change more than the wallpaper. Maybe not immediately but further down the line.

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
Under no circumstances allow yourself to be discouraged by a minor set-back. A delay or cancellation serves a useful purpose and you will acquire a gold star for putting on a brave and dignified face. Even as soon as May decisions made now could be reversed and new developments may compensate for any of April’s upsets. The period on or near the 11th requires a particularly steady hand on the tiller, and unless you are one hundred percent sure you can do without someone or something, hold your fire. You too could change your mind. On the 28th Venus returns to your sign, clearing away the clouds and setting you back on course for success. Indeed, results will be all the sweeter for your trials.
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 .

What kind of woman at the age of forty-eight, frumpy, overweight and sporting one of the great uni-brows, could stand centre stage in front of hundreds of people and sing as though she was already a platinum-label recording star. An Aries with Gemini rising, that's who!
