Aries 2017 stars: your year ahead

Wondering when life will finally settle down? It’s been a tumultuous and at times frustrating few years for many Aries, but calmer weather lies ahead. At the very least, you should feel more loved and appreciated as you settle into the new year.

Rams with April 10-20 birthdays may find themselves navigating unchartered waters through part of the year, but adrenaline can be addictive, and if you’re a typical Aries you’re not one to knock back a challenge. Just remember to do your homework in autumn, and don’t let that impatient streak beat you, especially on the financial front. The best things in life take time to mature and fully ripen … and that includes you!

Keywords: challenging, exciting, changeable, independent, powerful … balancing own needs with others

Love & friendship

You’re a leader, Aries, but forging your own path can come at a price. If relationships have been strained of late, start by slowing down, quite literally. As you begin to unwind, smoking embers will reignite (hello libido!). February’s charismatic stars will attract people like moths to a flame, and by May, singles might be spoilt for choice. Power issues may arise though autumn, but winter’s heart-charged stars (season’s apply to southern hemisphere) should work wonders – especially for your love life. Shared holidays look like fun through spring, so start planning.

Cash & career

Don’t spread yourself too thin … with so many ideas and so little time, being selective is the key to success. Research or revise plans through January, then hit the ground running in early February. Finances may require some TLC through March, but don’t stress: by Easter most Rams will be firmly back on track. Your networking skills will be off the Richter-scale this year, so if you’ve been feeling restless, chase up some old friends. By September you might find yourself in a lucrative new job. It’s onward and upward!

Health & wellbeing

That stamina is impressive, but if you’re searching for answers you need to slow down. Chilled out pastimes like yoga, swimming, and meditation should stimulate that spiritual side, and as you begin to tune in, new dreams will take shape; an underlying interest in healing or hypnosis might even emerge. Of course, when action-loving Mars bursts into Aries on January 29, there’ll be no holding you back. Team pursuits should satisfy that social streak through autumn and spring, so why not round up a few mates?

Aries food & fitness style

Aries, your big personality needs big flavours. Onions, leeks and chillies fit perfectly with your palate, as does almost anything Asian or Indian. Being a busy person, it’s all about maximum flavor in minimum time, so cooking up big batches and freezing portions for later makes sense.

Staying active should help to burn off some of that pent-up energy (much to the relief of your loved ones); if you’re finding it hard to stay motivated, join a team or revisit a sport that you loved as a child. Anything too slow will lose you, so choose activities that get the heart pumping. Power or Ashtanga yoga, touch footy, boxercise, marathons, mountain climbing … the sky’s the limit!

Aries travel style

Sure, it’s nice to lounge around, but when it comes to vacations Aries tend to lean towards outdoorsy, adrenaline-fueled activities. Theme parks, road trips, mountain treks … that pioneering spirit needs to break free, at least once in a while.

TRY: Theme park, Treetop challenge course, Tasmanian hike, Jetboating in NZ, Parasailing in Hawaii, charity road race, Great Barrier Reef, Uluru and the Larapinta Trail in Central Australia, Machu Picctu trek.

Aries crystals and gemstones

Diamonds, rubies (unless anger is an issue), carnelian, amethyst (very soothing), aquamarine, aventurine, garnet, citrine, topaz. I you’d like to order any crystals please email … I often have a few in stock.
