This is not the time to take unbridled risks. Cultivate mindfulness instead of barreling through your life, Aries. Only take chances that help you deal with what is already on your plate, and not ones that heap new stuff on it. Change your relationship to what you're presently dealing with for best results.
Stop looking outside of yourself for answers, and look instead inside your own self to see the roots of your current problems. You didn't create your troubles on purpose, of course, but you've been a participant in them. Focus on changing yourself instead of others should for best results.
Take risks to enliven and enrich your emotional landscape. Let inspiration come from the most upsetting parts of your life, as they point to the things that need to change. Your relationship to your feelings is growing up; don't let minor heartaches derail you.
Be brave enough to move to the next stage of your relationships. All it will take is to trust in your own instincts enough to do what's right in current dynamics, instead of what you're used to doing out of habit. Consider the big picture as you improve your interactions this week.
Sometimes you just have to pound one out, Aries. You are in a delicate place where your energies are pulled taut and it's hard to know what to trust with what you're feeling. Let yourself run wild for a minute! Do something just because it feels good to clean out the pipes for a fuller flow.
Your instincts are connected to your heart, but not in an emotionally reactive way: if you can feel your feelings you are in your body, and from that vantage point you can accurately read your intuition. Being open and present emotionally will bring untold rewards.
You have the chance to expand yourself, so don't blow it on your ego, Aries. Think about the Meta implications of the things you want to see develop so you can bring about your real-deal needs, not just satisfy your impulses. Go for your hearts desire, not fool's gold this week.
If you're going to get to the other side of this deep transition you're in, you're gonna have to contend with some of your gnarlier insecurities. Instead of trying to make your actions and plans perfect, learn from your internal blocks. Cultivate a sense of adventure and play this week.
Start the year off right by tying up loose ends and generally cleaning house. Things are about to change in surprising ways, so don't put too much energy towards making them stick just yet. Get rid of the clutter that obscures your clear view for best results.
Take inventory of all that you've achieved in 2011 — the good, the bad and the mediocre. As your year closes an honest appraisal of things will help you to best set goals that nurture your heart and are sustainable as well as attainable. Make this year count.
