Your values are changing in a big way throughout 2014, and your relationships will come under the microscope as a result. You're serious about improving your love life and won’t tolerate any sort of disrespect.
As in 2013, Mars and Uranus continue to lift your spirits and your physical drive. You are active, and possibly even a little hot-blooded, so be careful not to react impulsively to the behaviour of others, especially if you are in an intimate relationship with them.
Jupiter transits your career sector for a large part of the year, and up until August there will be considerable focus on improving your professional standing and skill set. Don’t overdo things as this planet has a tendency to push you beyond your limits. Take measured steps, especially if you are looking to do something new.
With Saturn in your zone of money, you'll be more judicious with the way you spend, and even if you don't earn more than you did last year, you'll still be able to set yourself up for a stable future.
Romance and Friendship
You could feel somewhat unsettled as Uranus makes its way through your zone of marriage in 2014. This is not necessarily a bad thing, depending on how responsive your partner is to making changes on progressing your relationships. Having said that, it may not be as easy as you think.
Fortunately, Venus enters your zone of love affairs in late March and this could bring you a much better state of affairs. You will feel more relaxed about love, and if you're single, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with those who are a good match for you.
With Mars in your Sun sign throughout the first part of the year, you are dynamic and, might I say, aggressive in going after what you feel you deserve. Ordinarily more balanced, you are likely to take a proactive approach to make sure that you are satisfied in all areas of your romantic and social life.
In the past you may have been quite happy to play the peacemaker, but in the next twelve months you will stand your ground on important ethical and life issues. This can extend to your social life and your friends might be surprised to see your attitude change. As I said in the introduction, you are looking for more respect this year, and by posturing a little you will get it.
Your social affairs and home life will feature strongly this year, and it is important to make sure that this aspect of your life is well looked after. If you have misgivings or are feeling pressured by loved ones and relatives, it will make it difficult for you to enjoy your intimate relationships, particularly if you feel you're being judged by those who have no right to make those sort of assessments. Again, speaking your mind and letting others know exactly what you want is essential.
You may have had some practice in dealing with the unexpected throughout 2013, but be prepared for more of the same. In marriage, your spouse may be undergoing some unanticipated changes in their work, or health, or maybe they desire a new lifestyle. If this is the case, adjustment will be one of your key words in 2014.
An impulsive attitude towards love and sex take place when Venus and Mars enter a square aspect on the 17th of January. With Sun also transiting your zone of love affairs on the 20th, this period will no doubt be a spicy, one, so choose your partners wisely—and while you are sober! Regrets may be the aftermath of unbridled love and passion.
Interference by relatives during the first week of February will be unwelcome. You may feel that you need a justification for your actions, but this is not the case. Draw a line in the sand if people are meddling in your affairs.
More satisfaction in love can be expected when Venus enters your zone of love affairs on the 6th of March, and then between the 22nd and the 30th, when the Sun and Mars enter the same zone. You will have a more balanced approach to love and feel that your affections are being reciprocated. Problems can occur in April with strong oppositional aspects from the Sun and Uranus. You are likely to overreact to the smallest provocation, and harmless statements may be taken personally. Additional exercise is not a bad idea throughout this month.
You can reach a new level of understanding in June when Venus transits the ninth zone of ethics, higher education and spiritual insight. Your relationship insights need to be practically implemented. This can happen after the 23rd, and it may even involve some sort of journey or connection to others in a distant place.
When the Sun transits the eleventh zone of friendship, you are likely to extend your circle of friends and acquaintances, and this should be an enjoyable period, but around 31st you may have problems with work and play overlapping. You need to be clear on boundaries, as so should those who are making a play your affections.
Making important changes in your marriage can take place when Uranus is stationary in its motion, and this happens on the 22nd of July. Up until October, you need to step up to the plate and not be afraid to implement the changes you feel are necessary to move your relationship forward. To some of you this may be unsettling, but it’s necessary to get your relationship back on track. Don't settle for anything less than what is going to make you happy in the long term.
Sidestep disputes between the 13th and the 17th of November as Mars, Uranus and the Sun challenge you. It may be a case of excessive tiredness, distraction and overwork impinging on your relationships, so try to control your moods and responses, particularly with those who are being confrontational. By maintaining your equanimity you also maintain control, and this is a key factor when it comes to enjoying better relationships throughout 2014.
