Aries: Notes from readers about their own astrology

Notes from Aries Readers | View all Aries notes here.

Readers: Aries was the first sign for which I requested comments, and I focused the discussion on career. I did not do this for the other 11 signs. Therefore, you are welcome to post additional comments below.

The thread between my professional and personal life this year is a quest for security & companionship. I began a dream job in August, but now realize it’s lonesome compared to my previous position, not as community oriented as before. I can work from wherever, and not checking in with anyone is liberating, but kinda lonely. No one notices if you arrive late, but there’s also no one to notice if you arrive at all…. I can’t think of when I’ve craved security or company this much, it’s definitely a theme right now. Interestingly, both the job & man would be considered my “ideals” But now that I “get what I want” it’s not nearly enough & has thrown my foundation off.

I’ve had to discipline my mind to get used to the 7 day a week work routine. Basic attitude that seems to work is to remind myself “Most people don’t have even one job they love but I am fortunate enough to have TWO.” Feel joyful most days to be of service to people who are genuinely in need or seeking spiritual insight. Interact with about 100 people a week in emotionally intimate situations.

Ambition is my constant companion and stirs up desires that would perhaps be best left alone until they actually sprout.

As a cancerian(Aries rising) and having Pluto in my opposite sign , the sign of Polarities for me, 2009 has been brutal. My career aspiration intersected with my relationship desires and the best way to describe the experience it “Extreme Emotional Pain” . Also, Venus retrogade in Aries until June, the timing of the crisis was end of April to End of May and I have been reeling from it since. Of course, Most important revelation I have had was the most of things I was doing was to satisfy a lack or shortage of some kind in my self. This revelation came in April- May time frame, may be this is what Venus taught me!! But for spirit and inspiration for career is still very much alive and in fact has matured more than I can describe.
=
EXPANSION! the year of expansion. In both my professional life and my relationship life. What has expanded is my vision for the possibilities of both. My goals and ideas of the last few years seem micro in comparison. I was able to let go of some self imposed limitations, realize my heart matters to me, and that I can and deserve to think bigger and achieve bigger.
=
It feels like they’re two seperate things or two different paths that don’t really intersect, it can go either way.
I could go one way which would give me really close and fullfilling relationships but my career wouldnn’t be exactly ideal, or I could follow the career path which would be following a kind of passion but one which takes me away from any sort of fullfilling relationships and kind of down a road that only gives me interactions with one type of people. If that makes sense.
=
Professionally, it’s been overwhelming with change and challenge. Adapting, which is usually easy, has been nearly impossible. Everything that was a given is no longer valid. I guess you could say this about most things this year. chaos is the new normal.
=
This has been much about the partnerships involved, both with the business partner and the clients. An innovator – part of the Aries birthright. It’s described as an Eastern idea of karma, which is: if you plant an apple seed, you get an apple tree.
=
This year I am intensely focused on career and have some big things brewing for next year — but major fear of failure, of course. This focus on career has made me totally abandon working on my personal life and relationships — I’ve been very complacent about love and oddly not obsessing over it at all. Maybe it’s not complacency, maybe it’s just calm.
=
All my business ventures depend on relationships in some form or other. Economically, this has been the most challenging year I’ve had. It started out great on all fronts, but really fell apart mid-year. It could have been leaving my husband because I needed so much healing from that. The momentum was shot and it’s been tough to get it back.
=
I am somewhat of a maverick, a square peg in a round hole, and have recently come under scrutiny again at work. I feel that I don’t need the kind of intervention that others get, and so those rules should not apply to me. But they do; I hate it.

    January 2010: 2009 was huge in terms of career and relationships for me. After two years frantic that a freelance endeavor wasn’t panning out — no income, dread that I was slipping backward in terms of accomplishments — I got a terrific job in July. I love where I am, I love the people, and already there are lots of opportunities to learn as many new things as I want. Relationship wise, I’m making new friends on the job — scarce in the past few years — and most interestingly, I’ve reconnected here with someone significant from my past. After feeling kicked around for almost 10 years — by bosses, the economy, circumstances beyond my control — I feel I’m finally able to exhale.
