Communications reach crisis proportions for you this coming Solar year, dear Aries–but why? It could be because, instead of your usual straightforward approach, you are distracted by the subtleties of who has what, who owes what to whom, and/ or by the demands of artisanship or attaining security. You can balance this successfully (and save communication channels from disaster) if you’re willing to face those matters hidden, ignored, or denied and then ‘trim the fat’, transforming them from problems into assets. Strengths this year include your ability to be truly original and to apply this appropriately to the ambitions. Bonus: other potential points of difficulty include matters of the natal Houses where you find Gemini and Virgo–forewarned is forearmed. Happy Birthday, Aries, and good luck!
