The dust is beginning to settle for Aries in 2017 after a few years on the roller coaster. It promises to be a much less traumatic year! In fact this could be the best for your love life in quite some time. You get lucky Jupiter in your marriage house and even Venus Retrograde takes part in some of Aries, so you get a double dose of the planet of love. Even if things are less volatile, you won’t loose the excitement factor.
The planet of change, Uranus is still in your sign, and makes some racy aspects this year, bringing surprises into your life. Any romances will have a random, out-of-the-blue quality, but it might be hard to make them stick also. Just enjoy the ride, you deserve to let your hair down after 3 years of Uranus square Pluto.
The main theme for Aries in 2017 is experimentation, having fun and not really committing to anything. This footloose and fancy free attitude applies not just to your love life but also in terms of your career path. You will be attracted to higher education or travel which enables you to broaden your skills and gain wisdom through other cultures. Sometimes it’s only through being away from home and experiencing culture shock that you can appreciate your native land.
You might even bring home a romantic partner who wants to experience your way of life, even if it just for a few weeks. This is a year when you keep finding unexpected items in your luggage! Where ever you go you can’t seem to avoid taking a piece home with you. By the end of the year you will probably have amassed a wardrobe of different costumes and personas, but it will be fun trying them all on.

Any relationship that does come along however, will still feel quite overblown and dramatic with Jupiter amping up the Hollywood factor. This can sometimes make you think you have met your soulmate, when you haven’t! Those already in relationship need to be careful, because as this transit could make you think the grass is that much more exotic looking across the pond.
Jupiter is famous for making one attracted to foreigners or someone whose background is quite different from yours. This can cause a consciousness-expanding effect in relationships, as you fit in with the behaviour patterns and values of your new mate. Depending on how evolved your partner is, this can be positive or negative. You might actually end up regressing if you have to submit to fit in with their culture. Whatever happens, you will be made extremely aware of the differences between people and wether you can realistically work harmoniously with them long term or not….(Continued below)
