The biggest news this week is the beginning of a retrograde cycle for Uranus, the planet of change and individuality, among other important connotations. This has been in your constellation since the middle of 2010, bringing a number of alterations and upheavals your way, some of which in retrospect have been welcome while others were a lot less so. As part of this process you have noticed, how you never would have anticipated the bulk of these developments, while others you thought quite likely to occur fell by the wayside. Gradually you appreciate the impact this will have on your future, between now and December.

The movement of Mars into your opposite sign has two alternative outcomes. One of these is favourable and the other less so, but you have a big influence over what eventuates. Since the end of last year you have been very busy, often with your employment affairs but with a range of other obligations too, so maybe a number of your relationships have had to assume second place. Now though, you find you have more time and can enjoy the company of those you formerly neglected. Otherwise you cannot feign complete surprise, when the flip side of Mars leads others to believe, you’ve taken them all for granted…

The coming year holds an array of new experiences. These open your mind to a range of possibilities, you’d never have considered before. You won’t have to stray far from home either, to encounter people and circumstances with an enlightening impact, often in situations where you never would have imagined there could be anything else to learn. Formal education at school or college has an especially edifying influence, while those who facilitate your access to knowledge are an integral part of this process. Since work also remains prominent on your agenda, some practical application for your skills would be perfect.

Now Jupiter has left your constellation and begins to highlight those that follow, the focus of your attention shifts away from purely personal concerns, as you realise others have an opinion and their own perspective on what has been happening. Though you have tried to be tolerant and in some cases have succeeded, it has been difficult remaining sufficiently detached, to see the situation as those around you do. This is relatively uncharacteristic, since you endeavour to be caring and most times, also try to be kind. If on reflection, a little more consideration wouldn’t go amiss, this week you start making amends…

Jupiter’s move into your sign last Wednesday, followed by your ruler the Sun this week, is the kind of meteoric news you have been missing for so long. Undoubtedly, it puts you right at the centre of events, so no longer will you be languishing some distance from the action, since you’ll be called upon to assume your customary place at the heart of things. You are feeling more optimistic than for ages and are ready to tackle once and for all, the circumstances that get you down. There is no time like the present to turn over a new leaf or to build on the implications of this fresh beginning, while the universe is on your side…

At the weekend, Mars finally exits the constellation of Libra and for the next seven weeks, takes up residence in the sign of Scorpio. A stay of this duration is around average, unlike the thirty-three weeks that Mars has dragged its heels through the Scales, an area of the sky in which it never was entirely comfortable. The upshot for you is that finally, you will notice the constant pressure on your finances diminishing, leaving your outlook looking rosier than it has done since the end of last year. Chances are your income is not really the problem, it is the ratio of this against your expenditure that needs attention.

Mars finally leaves your sign on Saturday, after first making its presence felt in your region of heavens, early last December. Almost immediately you will start to notice the differences in your day, when for instance you are able to plan out a schedule and actually stick to it, because nothing else has come along to interrupt you or demand your focus more urgently. Occasionally, you even experience quiet periods, when by losing yourself in silence or by contemplating the beauties of nature for example, you suddenly realise that for a few moments, your consciousness has been entirely cleansed of all unsettling thoughts.

The arrival of Mars on Saturday, boosts your energy levels. Where once you were lethargic, irritable and easily discouraged, you’ll suddenly discover the confidence to push through with your objectives. Not that anybody else will really notice the difference, since you are a master of hiding these insecurities from all but the most perceptive. In fact, when doubts are multiplying in your mind you compensate, by acting as if you have none at all. For now you are recommended to promote a challenging schedule and a furious pace to events. By deploying excess energy positively, you avoid getting angry about all kinds of things.

That old wanderlust returns, as a collection of planetary influences starts to emphasise the area of your horoscope linked with foreign travel. You might be able to satisfy your urge for different pastures, by increasing your knowledge of a subject that fascinates you, thus drawing your attention away from mundane everyday concerns for a while. But for many, it is the lure of faraway and exotic locations that has you totally enthralled. If you could go with a certain someone, you would have booked your ticket already. Even so, how long your own desires can remain on hold, is becoming increasingly questionable…

The concept of change is a daunting proposition to somebody who values tradition like you, since you believe there is an inherent value in the way things have always been done. Similarly in your personal life, you devote a lot of energy, to ensuring everything runs like clockwork and exactly as you’d expect. However, if you were to catalogue a few of the factors that presently you’re keen to improve, you’ll start to appreciate that sometimes, a few updates are for the best. Throughout the next twelve months, the theme of fortunate change is constant. Try loosening your grip a bit, in the interests of a better outcome.

Mars moves in to the uppermost sector of your horoscope, where it joins with Saturn in an area where the latter is at home. These two planets are an odd mixture, although not necessarily a bad combination, if you think in terms of cautious and sustained action, rather than immediate or instantaneous results. This part of the sky pertains in particular to your professional activities and career affairs, although other worldly objectives, goals and aspirations come under its rulership too. Mars is almost as happy when tasked with these matters, so the coming weeks prove fruitful for ambitions you’ve worked on for ages…

As Mars leaves Libra, you are pleased to notice light at the end of the tunnel, where the worst of your money worries are concerned. Your nervousness has been understandable, if you have been feeling you were in over your head, but it is important not to exaggerate the seriousness of your situation or to blow these matters out of all proportion. Perhaps you are taking a bit of a chance, but while the stars are on your side, the freedom you are hoping to gain is worth the risk. A large part of the end result lies in your hands, depending on your motivation and work ethic, also your sustained devotion to a fitting conclusion.
