Message: Testing the limits.
This year key relationships may be unusually disjointed and intense: before mid-March watch for loved ones to introduce new friends or social expectations. Planetary alignments suggest that the year 2017 may bring an entirely new social circle into your romantic or private life. Long committed Aries natives will likely find that loved ones now introduce a series of unusual friends into their immediate circle. If so, expect this to have a mildly draining or challenging edge: shortly after March 22nd close friends or lovers may well need to establish a stronger social identity or express past disappointments through unusual social alliances. Don't be derailed but do make note of the underlying emotions at work here: before intimate relations can progress, the past must be clarified and resolved. After April 7th, and lasting throughout the next three months, close romantic relationships will experience a powerful period of sensuality and renewed intimacy. Even though loved ones may have recently been scattered or easily irritated, aspects indicate that a clear emotional atmosphere will lead to rekindled passion. Single or unattached Aries natives can expect to be required to choose between two potential lovers at this time. Go slow and test out all competing social and family values: crucial decision points in romantic relationships will this year be largely based on social information. Much of the year 2017 will either rescue failing relationships and breathe new life into romance or, alternately, bring a series of new social choices into your life. The turning point will likely be between mid-May and early August: lovers that are intended to remain in your life will redefine their social priorities and create greater romantic intimacy. Watch closely and play an active role.
