Try a little tenderness, Aries. Monday’s quarter moon in Pisces calls forth your compassionate side, helping you smooth over the rough patches in your closest relationships. Let’s face it, Ram, you don’t always have the greatest track record when it comes to patience. The pokier people of Planet Earth can push your buttons, big time, especially when they stall your supersonic speed. Did you bite someone’s head off recently or deliver too heaping a helping of that tough love? Make amends early this week. A clear, genuine apology can do wonders. Although you’re on a mission, are you shouldering too much by yourself? The quarter moon brings balance, encouraging you to reach out for support. If nothing else, you could benefit from a little venting session to diffuse any resentment or frustration that’s been building. Best to discuss with a neutral third party first though. An edited version of your complaint, one where you can be proactive instead of reactive, will produce the best results. This quarter moon summons the muse as well. Let your imagination take the helm early this week, judging nothing as too outlandish or impossible. One of those offbeat visions could revolutionize your work, bringing passion back into a project. Let your maverick spirit steer the ship. Expansive Jupiter and structured Saturn sweep into a harmonious trine (60 degree angle) all week, reminding you that charity begins in the home. Give your inner circle priority when it comes to your generous acts. If a household project has been idling, you can make big strides towards completing it this week too. The Jupiter-Saturn trine helps you create win-wins with family, especially female relatives. With Jupiter in the mix, honesty is the best policy though. Don’t hold back your truths for fear of hurting her feelings. Otherwise, you’ll just wind up avoiding her while the conflict simmers. You’ll be inspired to go deeper in all discussions, allowing people to see the Aries behind the cool, “I’ve got it all handled” mystique. Your revelations only endear people to you further, Ram, so open up. The warm-fuzzy vibes could pave the way for romance too. Cuddle up for some sweet conversation and you might just move from the couch to the bedroom. Single? Give the nice ones an honest chance to woo you. You might just fall for the hottie-next-door type this week, who turns out to be anything BUT boring once you get to know him/her. Besides, as of last Saturday, December 7, your ruling planet Mars has been powering through Libra and your relationship sector, opening up eight strong months for coupledom. While new partnership opportunities pop up all week, both for business and pleasure, there could be some agitation within existing unions. Mars is turning up the heat, forcing you to really deal with the hot-button issues in your relationships now. Take off your running shoes, Ram, and hash things out. Progress is imminent if you are willing to do the work. For you, that may involve being more cooperative than perhaps you’re used to. You can still have things your way but a co-created vision will be more satisfying.
