Areas of Expansion in 2014 for Aries: Home, Family, Attachments, Romance, Creativity, Children, Hobbies
Your Aries 2014 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until July 16, 2014, your inner world, family life, domestic activities, and domestic arrangements continue 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. For some, getting rid of clutter can create the illusion of more space in the 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. Others might take up studies at home with distance or online learning.
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 January and April. However, May brings 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. Plans can be laid to secure a better future.
From July 16th onward, your romantic and creative worlds begin to expand and grow. You are learning to express yourself playfully and creatively without apology, and more willing to take some personal risks in order to do so. Romantic opportunities tend to abound during this cycle; or chances to kick back and have fun, express yourself, and pursue hobbies and entertainment. Creatively speaking, you can be filled with ideas and plans for realizing a dream.
This influence is with you until August 2015.
Potential negatives: Excessive emphasis on, or attention to, having fun to the detriment of other life departments. This is more likely to occur in early September, when attention to career and responsibilities can become an issue; and in August, when you may be glossing over important practical details. Watch for a tendency to gamble or lend indiscriminately during this period.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel supported and confident during this approximately year-long cycle. Particularly from September 2014 to June 2015, there is beautiful energy for getting the courage to express yourself more freely, romantic attractions, exciting new hobbies or channels of entertainment, and creative freedom. A spirit of openness and fun helps to bring new opportunities into your life. This is a time for trying new things, beginning new ventures, and sticking your neck out. Creativity finds a successful channel or outlet.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Support, Intimacy, Sharing, Finances
Your Aries 2014 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 off and on until September, 2015. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on whether you were born earlier or later in the sign of Aries.
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. May is very strong for real estate, home matters, and finances related to family. June and August are good periods for learning to rely on yourself and for quitting bad habits.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Personality, Personal Image
Your 2014 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. This influence continues throughout 2014, and beyond. 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, particularly in February, April, and December, when domestic, career, and reputation matters need special attention.
However, this influence can be a very liberating one. Some level of detachment allows you to make progress in areas in which you previously held yourself back through fear, excessive emotionality, or lack of confidence. From September forward, wonderful energy is with you for the more positive manifestations of this influence. You are discovering new ways of expressing yourself and your creativity. You could meet someone or come across information who/that changes your perspective and awakens something inside of you. This is a time of new ventures and possible breakthroughs.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Career, Finances, Intimacy, Support
Your 2014 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 January and April, when family life seems to require more of your attention, as well as in April and December, when sudden events can temporarily throw you off center and you become acutely aware of the need to update your skills or become more advanced and current in your business.
However, February brings easier, more natural change, when your view of the changes you are making is especially positive. It becomes quite 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 again this year. 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.
As well, your personality and your partnerships are evolving in important ways in 2014. Your definitions of “me” and “you” are transforming. Issues of personal courage, confidence, and independence come to the fore. Personal appearance, your body, and your image become especially important. For some, marriage or divorce will be an issue. For most, carving out a personal identity that includes a significant other who furthers their own personal growth will come into strong focus. With the North Node moving through your partnership sector most of the year, you are called upon to face up to your needs and desires to partner.
