Areas of Expansion in 2013 for Aries: Communications, Learning, Home, Family, Attachments
Your Aries 2013 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until June 25, 2013, your communications continue to increase and expand. Your ability and desire to express yourself is greater now, and your personal interests grow. Good fortune with vehicles, transportation, through siblings, and with the communications industry can be experienced during this cycle that started in June 2012.
Potential negatives: Taking on too many daily activities, communications, new interests, and learning endeavors or studies can be a problem now. Don't overload your plate. The more excessive tendencies of this transit are more likely to be experienced from January to March 2013.
However, for the most part, you are likely to enjoy more opportunities through your communications and contact with others during this cycle in 2013. You could make new friends and feel more connected or part of a group this year. You might find that you travel less or not at all, and that you are busier locally, in the first half of 2013 while Jupiter is in Gemini. Your thinking is more upbeat, positive, and forward-looking, and so is the way you express yourself. In fact, this is an excellent time for improving your communication skills and your general attitude or mindset. There can be opportunities through meetings, courses, teaching, and connections made in the neighborhood or through siblings. You are a great storyteller and teacher during this period.
From June 25th onward, your inner world, family life, domestic activities, and domestic arrangements begin to expand and grow. Relations with family can be more pleasant and supportive. You might move to a new home, likely a bigger one, or expand real estate holdings. Family itself can expand, or there might be an addition to your home. Some might take on a roommate for example, or bring more friends to their home. Entertaining in the home can be emphasized, if that is something that makes you happy. Otherwise, you can experience a stronger sense of peace and privacy in your home life. Generally speaking, more positive energy is brought to your domestic world, and long-standing problems with family might be put to bed. Do be careful about overextending yourself with home improvements, or larger accommodations that cost more. Your personal life tends to overshadow your professional life or material activities during this cycle.
On a more psychological level, you might increase your confidence in yourself and feelings of security during this period.
Some of you could become closer with in-laws during this period. Some Aries might welcome friends from overseas into their homes.
Potential negatives: Excessive money spent on home improvement, too much emphasis on the home to the point that other areas of your life suffer, or some unwillingness to expand your horizons. Avoiding or escaping responsibilities is more possible in August and September. However, July and December bring stronger energy for enjoying the most positive effects of this transit. For the most part, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported during this cycle. This is a time of nest-feathering.
This influence is with you until July 2014.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Support, Intimacy, Sharing, Finances
Your Aries 2013 Horoscope points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary "slimming down" in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
The area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules intimacy, sharing, and shared finances, or money and property that comes from a source other than your own personal income. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence began October 5th, 2012, and is with you until September, 2015. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on when you were born.
Tests can come to your financial and intimate worlds during this cycle. You may be dealing with fears of surrendering yourself, emotionally or financially, to others. Support from others may not be as forthcoming as it has been in the past. For example, a partner's income may be reduced, or another form of financial support may be taken away or reduced during this period. This requires you to assume more independence in terms of making a living. Emotionally, there can be a feeling that others are not as supportive. There can be delays or difficulties in general when it comes to getting what you want or need from others. However, it's a strong time for handling financial matters, especially debts and taxes, in a logical and realistic manner. While support may not be as forthcoming from a partner, career boosts are quite possible. These are unlikely to be drastic changes, but rather more on the lines of slow but sure progress, little by little. Your own approach to your career is subtly transforming.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Personality, Personal Image
Your 2013 Aries Horoscope points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
In March 2011, you entered a lengthy cycle in which the image you present to the world and your personality are changing quite rapidly. You are embracing change, pushing yourself beyond your normal limits, expressing your independent streak, and taking a few personal risks.
Potential negatives: While personal changes are necessary and perhaps inevitable, foolish risk-taking and pointless rebellion are not! You don't need to throw away everything from your past or totally clean your slate in order to express your independence. Tame your urges to rebel just for the sake of it.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Career, Finances, Intimacy, Support
Your 2013 Aries Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It's a time for "out with the old, in with the new".
Career, professional matters, and public life continue to transform this year. All year, professional matters continue to require deep and lasting fundamental changes. There can be tests to your level of expertise, and possibly even exposure of your areas of weakness. Treat these as challenges to improve. Changes may seem more challenging in April, May, August, and November, but significantly easier in March, September, and October, when your view of the changes you are making is especially realistic and positive. During these periods, it's obvious to you that the steps you're taking ultimately lead to a more secure footing in your professional life.
You will also be challenged to improve your financial picture this year. Your finances are evolving in important ways. Dependencies on others are revealed and could feel uncomfortable. The ways you handle money need to change, but also your attitude towards how effectively you can make an income, save, and depend on yourself. You experience a strong need to eliminate things you no longer need. Recently, you have been doing a form of spring cleaning, perhaps voluntarily or due to necessity. You are not viewing your possessions and property in quite the same way. Perhaps you've had to downsize or gone through a big move that involved eliminating unessential personal possessions. You might find that your attitude towards moving forward improves in direct proportion to your ability to rid yourself of excess baggage - the literal leads to the figurative. Shuffling around your finances is likely this year.
