Pursue your ambitions and look forward by all means to the rewards that accompany success, though also remember that the best work is what you do for its own sake. Even if you think pragmatism is turning choice into necessity, keep your higher ideals in mind and don’t stop looking for opportunities. You need a role in which you can express your gifts, and which is truly a labor of love.

An encounter with someone today could offer a clue or some logic to your understanding of how things came to be the way they are in a relationship (courtesy of aspects Venus is making). Note: that might also refer to your relationship to your own lust, sexual identity, erotic power or even any tendencies in love that you perceive to be (or are) ‘selfish’. There’s a reason you’re where you are at now. Can you feel what’s being mirrored to you and trace its path?
At the same time, you may know that you need to make space for yourself in your life, but do you know how? You could start by setting up some actual, physical space in a room that’s dedicated to a specific purpose. This could be an activity or ritual that feels inherent to who you are. Think passion projects, favorite creative outlets and spiritual practices — though with Aries ruled by Mars, physical activity also fits, especially if it carries some measure of devotion, and sex might top that list. Yet don’t underestimate the power of your mind to create and hold the space you need.
In fact, one could say that is always the first and most important place to start: before you can effectively find or make physical and temporal space for yourself, you have to consciously choose it — amidst the clamor of family expectations and obligations, social pressures and FOMO, and all our modern digital distractions. Choosing it means understanding that you deserve it; simply being on the planet in your current form implies that all facets of you have a place at the table. When you have space in your life for who you are, the container you can hold for those you love — and for the ways you can serve the world — gets that much larger.
