Overview of 2017
Jupiter moves through the sign of Libra until October 10th, and we place strong emphasis on partnership, relating well, and public relations. This is a time for building our diplomacy skills and awareness of others’ needs, in addition to our own needs for partnership, companionship, and togetherness. Jupiter in Libra encourages togetherness, equality, compromise, fairness, partnership, peace, harmony, and diplomacy. The arts, architecture, law, math, mediation, and politics are possible avenues for increased success. There can be heightened use of charm and grace to reach goals. Our social skills contribute to our sense of fulfillment and attract success.
Look for opportunities to grow and succeed through negotiating, compromising, partnering, teaming up, and counseling during this cycle. As well seek out ways to learn more about relationships, legal matters, social skills, psychology, beauty, and social justice topics. People who have given up on finding a meaningful one-to-one relationship or partnership might now reconsider. Relationships are far from status quo during this Jupiter in Libra cycle. There can be more breakups, reconciliations, and new pairings as we place more importance on fair and equal relating. There can be a focus on gaining in some way through our relationships – of coming to a stronger position in a significant way.
Jupiter will form a square with Pluto and an opposition with Uranus while transiting the sign of Libra. We can be quite ambitious now, feeling that if we set our sights high enough, we can achieve anything. However, treading lightly now, while it may not come naturally, is advised as it is easy to stir up opposition. We may take on too many interests, activities, or desires. The tendency now is to push too hard, in general, and to ignore the important details. This is a time during which we can open ourselves up to new ways of thinking. However, we could also too easily avoid taking responsibility for things that truly matter. With Jupiter opposing Uranus in Aries for a good part of 2017 as well, we want our close relationships but we are also holding on tightly to our individuality. The T-square involving Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto can challenge us in 2017. We want it all now, and something has to give.
However, through challenges we receive rewards. We’ll be seeing more and more cries for etiquette, graciousness, peacefulness, tact, fairness, and social justice. We’ll also be wanting to see more people getting along, particularly those who we don’t typically see united. We may be growing fed up with persistent attention to ambitions and the self, and begin moving away from personal and professional agendas towards more consideration of others and attention to relationships.
During Jupiter’s quincunxes to Neptune and Chiron, watch for the temptation to go against our beliefs in order to please someone – this, of course, should be avoided as much as possible. It could lead to a gigantic “what was I thinking?!” moment down the line. Our boundaries may be challenged as we struggle with seeing where to draw the line between support and enabling others.
Excellent times for the Jupiter in Libra transit include when Jupiter is in mutual reception with Venus, ruler of Libra, from January 3-February 3. Also, Jupiter gets wonderful help from Saturn while it transits Libra. Although it only officially perfects in August, a Jupiter-Saturn sextile is in orb for much of the period. There are opportunities to put our plans into motion. We’re balanced in our approach to new endeavors, seeing both the potential benefits and pitfalls, improving our judgment. This influence helps to crystallize and lock down lessons learned and endeavors begun during the course of the transit.
Jupiter moves into Scorpio on October 10th and will continue to transit Scorpio until November 2018. Jupiter’s transit through intense and passionate Scorpio urges us to go after our hearts’ desires. As Jupiter moves through Scorpio, we learn and understand that in order to heal, we have to cut out the “extras” and focus on what really matters to us. Because Jupiter’s nature is extravagant, we must guard against “too much”. Moderation doesn’t come naturally to either Jupiter or Scorpio.
This is a period for learning to embrace our emotions–to understand them, go with our feelings, and express them on a social level. Jupiter in Scorpio encourages us to grow and expand on an emotional level, and because Scorpio is focused and deep, it encourages us to develop intimacy–with ourselves and with others. Where Jupiter is currently transiting is generally where we are inclined to find our “joy.” This can also be a strong time for joint endeavors or enterprises.
With Jupiter in Scorpio, we attract the most success and good fortune when we put our “all” into a project or undertaking, and when we use our magnetic powers to heal others. Watch for being obsessive or an attitude that if it feels good, we should go for it.
Saturn transits Sagittarius until December 19th. We grow through possible tests of faith, beliefs, and knowledge under this influence. Until we adjust to this energy, we can experience a fear of the future, some dashed hopes, worries of public disapproval (an especially real concern with social media), and fear of being held back, limited, restricted, not free, or caged in. Adjustment requires redefinition. This is a time for letting go of self-defeating attitudes that have been holding us back, recognizing exactly where we have been overdoing our expectations, and finding new, perhaps more authentic ways to nurture faith, hope, and vision. We are seeing where we’ve been overconfident, sloppy, entitled, and excessive, and how these things have ultimately contributed to stagnation, frustration, or letdown. This transit is about sincerity and authenticity. “Quality over quantity” applies. In order to really benefit and learn from this period, we need to accept that some options may be limited in order to enjoy a simpler, more fulfilling life.
Saturn’s square to Neptune is over now. This year, we have a wonderful Saturn-Uranus trine in Fire signs that supports building or rebuilding long-term structures in our lives that truly work for us. This is a time when we’re more likely to be doing what we enjoy and enjoying what we’re doing, particularly related to career, work, and life path matters, but extending to other areas of life as well. Changes we make tend to be deliberate or calculated. Original ideas may take form or they might be developed quite successfully now. There is an opportunity to combine stability and improvement or excitement successfully. The same can be said of innovation and tradition.
Saturn moves into its own sign, Capricorn, on December 19th, and will transit Capricorn until the year 2020. Saturn does very well in Capricorn, a sign that it rules, although it can be a rather insular, narrowly focused influence. This is a time for checking in with ourselves and the structures of our lives to see if we’re following the rules and meeting our responsibilities. Taurus, Virgo, Scorpio, and Pisces receive stabilizing energy. More on this in the 2018 Overview.
The last eclipse in the Virgo-Pisces polarity occurs as a Lunar Eclipse in February in the sign of Pisces. This is the final push to resolve conflicts related to work-life balance, service, and emotional and physical health. For most of 2017, however, eclipses fall along the Leo-Aquarius axis. These eclipses are about striking a better balance between romance and friendship, and between expressing ourselves in personal and impersonal ways. They serve to thrust us into a state of heightened awareness of flaws in our friendships, attitudes towards others, and group activities. Changes are afoot! The North Node moves from Virgo to Leo around May. With the North Node in Leo from May forward, we are challenged to take more pride in ourselves as unique, creative, loving individuals.
Close partnerships can be a real joy in 2017, dear Aries. You prefer to spend one-on-one time than interacting in group settings. It’s a very strong year for those of you looking for a happy partnership. Others tend to be supportive, helpful, and positive. Partnering opportunities are substantial. Some of you will form a partnership that either leads to marriage or is otherwise significant, some will enhance an existing close relationship, and most will derive much joy from their relationships with significant others. New partners met this year are likely to feel much like a breath of fresh air. Challenging relationships, or challenges in relationships, tend to be left behind. For some, romance becomes a little more serious, but “fun-serious.” Some of you will fall in love or re-commit to a current lover.
Freedom and individuality are essential ingredients in your relationships. However, later in the year, especially from October forward, you’re likely to crave a deep connection. You enter a yearlong cycle that improves your intimate world and your relationship with yourself as you embrace your deeper needs. This can be a brilliant period for refunds, gifts, and support. It’s also powerful for counseling, psychiatry, and self-improvement efforts.
Improving your skills will be a focus in 2017, and some of you will do so formally, benefiting greatly from it. There is a growing need to buckle down with your education or to learn more specific skills rather than broad topics now. This is an excellent period for skills development no matter what your age, and you’ll want to prepare for the cycle that begins at the tail end of 2017 when Saturn reaches the top of your solar chart. Saturn urges you to discipline yourself in your professional life and reminds you of the importance of structure, responsibility, and reputation. A career peak of sorts is on its way.
March and April bring some backtracking in the areas of relationships, partnerships, and finances. Take this time to review these matters with an eye on improving them. You’re reviewing your feelings about love and pleasure. You are likely to be focused on past relationships rather than pushing forward socially. You really come into your own from mid-May to the first week of June when opportunities to advance your personal interests and plans emerge. You’re also much clearer on what’s in your heart, and this helps you make the right decisions for you.
Heavyweight planets are directly affecting the sectors of your chart that rule how the world views you, both professionally and personally. You continue to move away from false paths that no longer serve you well, or you transform them into more suitable ones. This year, you’re likely to get things moving smoothly, even if you are still rather independent and at times rebellious.
Uranus has been in your sign for years and has a little way to go before moving to Taurus in 2018-2019. When Uranus first stimulates your Sun or Ascendant, you could find that you’re acting out – rebelling, even. This will happen in 2017 for those born April 11-18. As you become more accustomed to its energy, you are more active than reactive. The plus side of this influence is that you feel fresher, more energetic, younger, and more expressive. You are able to free yourself from limiting situations and attitudes. Do be careful, however, that you don’t alienate others with a self-centered, defensive attitude.
You’re in a great position to get your life sorted out in key ways this year. Better routines and more consistent attention to health and wellness figure strongly. You can come to a better work-life balance by automating some of your work or coming up with new ways and methods to do the things you’ve previously toiled over. A partner or even a potential partnership could play a vital role in helping or motivating you to bring more order into your life. This can be a time for finding more joy in life from simplifying. Some of your wilder ideas can be brought down to reality this year.

The bigger headlines for your year ahead have to do with work, health, and partnership, dear Taurus. This is also an important period of your life for improving your home and family experiences. More joy can be discovered in your daily routines and your work in 2017. In October, you enter a brilliant yearlong period for rewards through partnership.
Work is especially available to you, and you come across well in job interviews if you need them this year. There is a strong potential for increased job satisfaction and vocational fulfillment, although the tendency to take on too much should be managed. Jobs involving handling others’ resources, editing, and researching can thrive in particular. Especially in August, you’re in a powerful position to make long-lasting and impactful lifestyle changes.
Health can dramatically improve, and you might find that you’re taking more pleasure in managing it. You might enjoy reading labels and making the right choices. This is a good period for attention to physical fitness and health routines, as you are more aware of how these positively impact your energy and confidence.
From March to the end of April, you’re in a period of relative retreat and perhaps limbo for some of you. This is a time for looking back before you move forward. While Venus is retrograde (exact dates are March 4-April 15, but there can be some haziness in the surrounding days), you are not as sure of yourself and uncharacteristically second-guessing your decisions. Rules and plans seem to be changing. Roadblocks and delays don’t help. Past loves can reappear, whether they do so in the flesh or memories fill your mind. Love may become complicated because of this, and you will need to decide whether or not these loves are in your past for a good reason. However, you’ll come out of this period seeing things with new eyes, and better off for it. This is a time for personal review when you could be reconsidering certain elements of your life and keeping more to yourself. Ideally, you get in touch with your heart’s desire after this review period, and you move forward with more confidence and clarity.
There is a continued push to take care of your debts and to change your lifestyle to incorporate better habits. However, this year, you’re enjoying this process more. In fact, work and health pursuits are more fun and engaging than usual. You might thoroughly enjoy reworking your diet or doing some extra work if you have exciting new goals in mind. 2017 is quite excellent for renewing or rekindling your desire to master your routines. In your enthusiasm, you may take on more than you can handle at times, but for the most part, you’re in a motivated frame of mind.
While 2015-2016 likely brought more opportunities to socialize and enjoy yourself, new relationships may not have been very serious or long-term in quality. The years 2017 and 2018 bring partnership opportunities of a more serious, committed, or involving nature. This influence begins in October 2017 and runs until November of 2018. There can be a relationship that brings much joy to your life – a connection that puts a bounce in your step. More freedom may be necessary for existing partnerships. You’re unlikely to tolerate stale or lifeless routines and dynamics in your relationships any longer. There is more focus on quality rather than quantity in your social life. There can be multiple opportunities in the relationship department – an embarrassment of riches for some!
Career and family need special handling, and coming to a balance of energy between the two is necessary this year. Great rewards come to you through keener attention to your home life and family, as difficult as this may be from time to time. Changing roles on the home front are possible, and you are more concerned and involved with family as well as domestic projects in 2017. You may be making more investments into your home and family, both energetically and financially speaking.
From mid-October forward, a yearlong trend begins that brings benefits to and from relationships. This is a powerful time for one-to-one relationships, counseling, marriage, common-law marriage, and business partnership. It’s an excellent period for bringing conflicts to peaceful and reasonable resolutions and for mutually beneficial arrangements. Helpful people come into your life now. In fact, the coming two years are particularly favorable for support from others.
This is a strong year for satisfaction from the work you do and for romantic surprises, dear Gemini. For much of 2017, the Great Benefic, Jupiter, is moving in harmony with your own sign and is gracing your romance and pleasure sector. You are taking the stresses and pressures of everyday life in stride this year. Your can-do attitude is your best asset right now! It’s a wonderful year for discovering creative talents or hobbies, as well as for finding new and exciting outlets for self-expression and entertainment.
More and new ways to have fun are available to you this year, whether it’s because of numerous social engagements, a friend (new or established) takes you out more often, you stumble upon a new way to meet romantic prospects, or you simply look for more activities that motivate you. For those of you looking for love, meeting a special person is quite possible. You are radiating energy that makes you more attractive, and, as a result, opportunities are that much stronger for romantic attention. Some of you will be discovering new hobbies, reviving old ones with renewed enthusiasm, or developing latent talents. Others will be more interested in sports or other forms of recreation, and deriving much pleasure from these activities. Children can figure more strongly in your life. This is a time for bonding happily with your children if applicable. With increased focus on your romantic life or your personal activities, there can be some clashes with friends at times this year. However, recognizing areas of excess and working on a better balance can lead to a satisfying resolution.
The year 2017 brings fullness to your social life, to romance, to creativity, and to your life with children. A partnership might benefit from more recreational activities or a spiced up romantic life. Friends may be disapproving of the time you spend pursuing romantic or creative matters and financial constraints can also weigh heavy if you are spending too much on entertainment or hobbies, but as long as you don’t over-emphasize the fun side of life so much that other areas of life suffer, you should find this period of your life very enjoyable.
Those of you looking for a better job could find it, particularly after October 10th. Job seekers will radiate more confidence and attract accordingly. This theme will stick with you through much of 2018 as well. Many of you will experience more satisfaction from your job, improved working conditions, and/or better health. New job offers might be part of the picture now. Although work can be hectic at times, you enjoy taking care of all the details, and being in demand for your skills can be a very pleasant feeling! Know when to say no, however, because your confidence in your work can lead you to accept more tasks than you can reasonably manage. However, you’re moving into an excellent period for more creative and satisfying work.
This is a time for taking special pride in your usefulness to others. You are taking more interest in work as well as health in the last quarter of the year, and it’s an excellent time for discovering new and even enjoyable health and fitness routines. It’s also a very favorable time for pets.
Relationships are being tested and you may feel that if you don’t have a good partnership, you’d rather not have any. Many of you will be strengthening relationships and, while it’s not necessarily easy going, you’ll reap the rewards later. Others are feeling a little pressured or lonely as you find your way and discover what it is you truly need and want from a significant other. The influence that pushes for you to get serious about partnerships lasts until mid-December and then moves on. Some of you will be making big commitments this year, and others might end a long-term relationship – it will depend very greatly on how strong any existing relationship is.
Even so, this is an excellent period for stable relationships with friends and partners. There can be wonderful opportunities to enjoy relationships that are both steady and accepting. You may be balancing the stricter, more traditional, rule-oriented energy of partnerships with the progressive elements of friendship and individuality. Being able to depend on others a little more without sacrificing too much in the excitement and independence department is a theme. This is an excellent time to update and refurbish, particularly in your social life. If relationships can use some extra attention, do so.

There’s more hard work to do and increased daily responsibilities for you in 2017, dear Cancer, but you’re also going to really enjoy yourself. Once every twelve years or so, Jupiter enters your romance and creativity sector, and this is one of those years, beginning in October. Most of the year, family matters are stabilized and a source of great pleasure, joy, and increase. Some of you are moving into bigger or more spacious accommodations. Others are finding family members more supportive of your needs and wants. In some cases, too, the increased focus on family and home can feel a little too excessive! However, you should certainly take advantage of this time for improving home and family matters.
Jupiter continues to bring fullness to your inner world, family, and home life this year until October. You are expanding your feelings of comfort and warmth within yourself and with family members. Some of you could be literally expanding your family, welcoming new “additions.” There can be wonderful opportunities to work from home for some. For others, there can be strong benefits from work related to domestic matters, family, or home and property.
Relationships are intense, serious, and changeful this year, but they also hold potential for being very rewarding. Depth in your connections is what you seek. While your one-on-one connections seem to hold a lot of drama and emotional ups and downs, you’re learning a lot about yourself through them.
There will be times this year when you feel distinctly overworked and when you don’t always feel that you get the recognition you deserve for your hard work. Shifts and changes in the distribution and sources of your money are likely due to eclipse action in 2017. This is an important time for sorting out your finances. Taking charge of your income brings excellent rewards from May forward.
Career continues to be a bit of a wild card for you with Uranus at the top of your chart. Either you are moving towards identifying with a new path, or some changes are introduced upon you, forcing you to rethink things. However, there is distinct support along these lines arriving in 2017. You might even discover a way to enjoy more freedoms in your work while maintaining a steady paycheck. While your practical efforts and creative vision may not have gelled well with one another in recent years, you can make these things work for you in 2017. Applying traditional methods to your innovative ideas can be very successful now.
One of the best things you can do for yourself in 2017 is to fine-tune your work, health, and daily routines. You are in need of more structure when it comes to these things, and while it involves effort and persistence, you’ll thank yourself for doing it. Orderliness will be empowering, and paying closer attention to deadlines, details, and rules will help tidy up your mind and emotions so that you feel freer to enjoy yourself when pleasure calls, which it is likely to do frequently!
From October forward, new opportunities to truly enjoy yourself through recreation, hobbies, and other amusements are likely to come your way. Romantic opportunities expand as well. You’ll discover new outlets to express yourself creatively and playfully. For some of you, a working relationship could turn into something more, or co-workers can be integral in exposing you to a new hobby, different and exciting forms of recreation, or romantic opportunities. There can be exotic experiences in your life from November forward and into 2018. Faith and confidence in others increase. For those of you who are writers or work in sales, this is a particularly good period for getting published or widening your influence. At the same time, a mature, responsible, and commitment-oriented influence affects close relationships beginning at the tail-end of 2017, so you’re likely to be getting serious about a partnership.

You continue to enjoy learning and expanding your interests this year, dear Leo, and you’re gaining recognition for your ideas and insight. You may feel scattered from time to time, but you’re gaining your footing, particularly as the year advances. A romantic relationship or creative project steadies and commitments might be made.
You continue to develop writing, speaking, and teaching skills in 2017. Skills and knowledge gained now can be very profitable and useful in the years ahead. You are bringing tons of creativity to your communications. There can be interesting opportunities emerging through courses, meetings, siblings, neighbors, and classmates. Love relationships might begin through the pursuit of learning and mental interests again this year. New and improved ways to commute and connect are also in focus.
While you may have felt that your pursuit of pleasure and learning clashed with your work or creative pursuits in previous years, you’re able to bring a nice balance between the old and the new as well as the practical and experimental. The need to buckle down is certainly real in 2017, but you’re able to creatively combine work and pleasure or skills development with your responsibilities so that you don’t feel overtaxed or pressured by an “either/or” situation.
The people you meet or who have the most influence on you this year tend to help steer you in the right direction when it comes to topics to focus on or work to invest your energies into. This is unlikely to be direct guidance, but rather they are able to see where your true talents lie a little more clearly than you at the moment.
Eclipses this year nudge and prod you to define your life in terms of your partnership needs, bringing up themes of cooperation versus independence. This is a time of self-discovery that also considers partnership considerations. You are asking yourself how you can express yourself authentically and reach your relationship goals as well. This can be a period of a change of relationship status for many Leos.
Casual relationships mature and become more serious this year. In general, you are moving towards deeper thinking and the desire for depth and maturity in your connections to others. While the year is good for your social life overall, you are likely going out a little less, favoring quality over quantity when it comes to your leisure time and romantic life, or combining work with recreation very effectively. You may not have the time, or less inclination, for recreation, entertainment, and hobbies, perhaps preferring to pour your energies into more constructive channels.
Parents might invest more money and time into their children’s hobbies or find themselves creating more structure for their kids. Creative pursuits that most attract you now are those that generate tangible rewards, and you may be putting more energy and work into your own hobbies. Overall, Saturn’s influence this year is good for feeling on track, stable, and strong enough to meet life’s challenges. You are less inclined to rebel or react in 2017, and more inclined to live in a more authentic manner – true to yourself.
Your siblings, acquaintances, and neighbors might be the source of wonderful opportunities this year, so do listen to what they have to say. In 2017, your eyes are opened to new experiences and belief systems. Some of you (mostly those born August 13-21) are enjoying a period of unique self-expression, insightfulness, and sense of freedom.
Don’t pass up on travel opportunities and connections made with people overseas or of a vastly different culture than yours for those Leos who haven’t already done so. These experiences can be eye-opening and beneficial.
Eclipses this year put special focus on spending habits (you need to take charge of your finances) as well as your relationships with others (you need to find a balance between independence and your need for other people in your life).
You are searching for something more fulfilling and deeply satisfying on the job front, and this trend will slowly unfold over the coming years. Along the way, events seem to conspire to push you into that direction. Many Leos (and especially Leo Ascendants) will be starting or growing businesses now and in 2018 that will benefit them for years to come. This will not come without hard work and persistence, but you are likely to enjoy the process more if you work on those things that really matter in the long term.
The desire to move to a larger home or to create the illusion of more space by eliminating clutter is strong in the final quarter of the year. If circumstances allow, this can be a good time to launch new projects or even a long-term business.

You begin the year with a stronger need to feel rooted, secure, and comfortable, dear Virgo. If you’ve played your cards right, a raise, bonus, large gift, or some other material increase can come into your life. Even if material benefits are not evident during Jupiter’s transit of your solar second house (until October), it can be a time of indulgence and abundance. It’s a great time to build on existing projects and businesses, as well as to further develop your talents.
There are likely to be some pressures on the home front in 2017, but also opportunities to really get your domestic life into order. Organizing or reorganizing your home, downsizing and streamlining where necessary, and establishing better and more efficient routines will be helpful. Gone is the theme of previous years where you felt a conflict between the old and the new. In the past, you’ve often weighed the pros and cons of sticking to tried and true patterns and moving forward to unexplored territory. This year, there are distinct opportunities to combine these things creatively. Your strong desire to reach new levels of achievement and success no longer clash as rigidly with your desire for security by keeping the status quo.
Some of you are struggling with a clash of values when it comes to a love relationship and for some of you, with children, however. Overspending may be an issue this year that you’ll want to nip in the bud. Many Virgos are discovering creative talents you never knew you had, as well as gaining more confidence about sharing and expressing them. As a Virgo, you can sometimes find it difficult to give yourself enough credit or value. However, harnessing the power of Pluto, although a little tricky at times, can help you learn to love and value yourself more. Focus on healing and strengthening by ridding yourself of attitudes and habits that make you feel less than powerful.
Home life continues to need extra attention and effort in 2017, although the long-term influence that drives this theme comes to an end in mid-December, so many of you will be wrapping things up in this regard. As well, you get more support this year than you have in the past for getting your home and domestic life into order. Financial and emotional support is easier to rally up. Even so, you might be feeling the weight of responsibilities and feel “alone in charge” at times. You will be attempting to bring more structure and order to your home life, as you may be feeling a little stifled in your current surroundings until you do. In recent years, when it comes to home and family, there have been times that you feel the walls are closing in on you–there may have been a sense of heaviness when it comes to your responsibilities, or you literally feel cramped in your personal space. However, you have the chance to restructure your domestic life by reorganizing your personal space as well as your routines and schedules.
An eclipse in February completes a set that was quite personal for you as you explored your needs for both relationships and independence. This is the final cosmic nudge towards improving or solidifying a partnership. A retrograde cycle of Venus from March 4-April 15 can lead to more review of your feelings and can temporarily complicate a relationship. From May forward, you know your heart, and you are ready to make decisions. You’re also in an excellent position to add more healing and relaxing activities to your routine. You recognize the benefits of coming to a better work-life balance.
Relationships with siblings and possibly neighbors can be stimulating and even healing from October forward, and activities close to home (and on or in the home) are very appealing now. This period in your life is a time for building a solid foundation. Understand that moderation at this point in your life is necessary for your spiritual growth and your physical body as well.
The last quarter of the year can be quite fabulous for winning others over to your ideas and plans. You are also quite hungry for new learning experiences and personal interests or projects, and while you can have a lot on your plate, you’re likely to thoroughly enjoy learning, connecting, and sharing your ideas with others. Partnering up to learn or work can be in focus. Saturn moves in at the tail-end of the year to support your efforts to meet your responsibilities. You begin an excellent cycle for a steadier love life and profitable hobbies.

2017 is a year of “out with the old, in with the new,” dear Libra, as you continue a trend from the last quarter of 2016 that keeps you looking forward and chasing new beginnings. You are determined to change your life for the better and to be a better person as well. You are likely to feel that you’re moving forward and growing, craving more freedom and independence, and perhaps facing some endings as a result, but nothing that you cannot handle.
Improving your skill set may be necessary for your work, and even if it isn’t required of you, you should probably look into getting formal or even informal training. You tend to have less time for acquaintances in 2017, and perhaps even for your family at times. Small talk no longer seems to satisfy you, and you could feel quite a bit of pressure to make better and more efficient use of your time.
Periods surrounding Jupiter’s opposition to Uranus, your romance planet, are strong for romance, pleasure, recreation, self-expression, and creativity, although events tend to be sudden or surprising. This aspect peaks in March and September. However, this is unlikely to be a time for committing yourself to something – you’re experimenting and having some fun now.
Venus, your ruler, turns retrograde from March 4-April 15, and this is a period for review, introspection, and reflection. It’s not the best time to make important decisions, but it’s excellent for looking at your love life and your own feelings with new eyes. May and June are strong for knowing your heart and pursuing what or who you want.
Prepare yourself mentally for communication and transportation issues – mechanical breakdowns or more repairs may be necessary, particularly in April and November. Getting from A to B may be a little more stressful at these times, for any number of reasons. Those of you in the midst of studies should probably watch for sudden changes of heart in terms of the subjects you’re focusing on. Consider whether switching around programs is really worth the extra time. If it truly is, then go for it.
You are communicating with more authority or honing your knowledge in a particular trade or area of knowledge/expertise. However, some people in your life might complain that you are not as available for idle chit-chat. You are working harder this year at communicating more effectively and building your level of expertise. You are dissatisfied with sloppy learning or holes in your thinking and want to refine your skills and knowledge.
In recent years, the status quo has been blown out of the water when it comes to partnering. You’ve likely experienced experimental or alternative ways of relating, whether this was voluntary or not. This year, this comes together better for you — you’re making things work. Your view of relationships and what you need (and don’t need) from them is changing. This long-term influence will wrap up in 1-2 years, and you’ll benefit from living your life according to your own values, not simply reacting to what others are (or aren’t) throwing your way. Rebelling can, eventually, lead you back to yourself with greater understanding, and this is “where you are at” going forward.
This is not to say that love relationships are smooth sailing. In fact, big changes in the dynamics of close partnerships (personal and business ones) are necessary. You will need to allow a partner more freedom and space, and there will be times when you feel that you suffer as a result (particularly when Jupiter in your sign opposes Uranus in Aries, the sign that represents “others” in your life). If you allow others more freedom, you should also feel free to take some for yourself. However, recognize when you’re making too many points, as this can prevent bonding. There can be joy in your partnerships, and some blessings, but also some uprooting.
An influence with you from October forward has you knowing your value and attracting more money or possessions into your life. Many of you will enjoy a pay increase and/or more recognition for your capabilities. You are valued, act like you deserve to be valued, and as a result, attract better fortune.
Look for opportunities to make your life more comfortable, and to make extra money – chances are, these abound. This influence will stick with you as you move into 2018.
However, in the final quarter of the year, watch for overindulgence — be kind to your future self! More advice: you may be so tied up with projects that you have less time to fraternize with siblings, neighbors, and acquaintances than you used to, and they’re likely to feel the withdrawal. While attention to other matters seems to take precedence, don’t wall yourself up too much.
A satisfying year is ahead for you, dear Scorpio! Jupiter will move into your sign in October, stimulating a personal new beginning of sorts and upping your personal magnetism to new heights. Until then, you are in a strong period for healing and for doing inner work. This is an excellent year for business ideas, work, and health.
Work is likely to take an exciting new direction. Work patterns may not have been especially regular in recent years, and while this trend continues in 2017, you are better able to make them work for you instead of against you. You are seeing that your health needs are unique and you may feel that no one formula is going to keep everything balanced. Some of you will be exploring alternative health supplements and methods with more success. Solid opportunities for increasing income from your job arrive this year, as well as sponsorships, loans, refunds related to health, and other such forms of support. Even so, financial improvements come through hard work and are slow and steady with Saturn in your income sector virtually all year.
Generally speaking, matters are not moving quickly when it comes to personal finances, and this is necessarily so. The year demands that you tighten up your spending and pay more attention to budgets. It’s a great year for getting spending under control and for getting rid of clutter. The tendency to worry about money could be high, but don’t go overboard with it. Caution and realism are good, but worry is unnecessary and wasteful. Work is very rewarding this year and some of you are realizing a dream related to your work or job.
There is a possibility that a reduction in personal income, or the perception that you don’t have enough, can lead you to seek out more support from outside sources. Be as patient as you can when it comes to money in 2017. Think twice about taking on new expenses and new debts. Consider whether they’re actually worth the added worry! Gear up your mindset to consider the long term. Most of you are already doing so, and if not, you get great support for taking care of business realistically and more efficiently this year.
Nine to five is unlikely to bring much satisfaction, and you might experiment with new schedules or working from home, which can point to more flexibility, although effective time management becomes necessary. Altogether new routines will be necessary. Communication and learning continue to be areas of evolution and change in your life. Your powers of influence run exceptionally high – others are truly listening to what you have to say. You may also find great pleasure in research or other serious studies. Shifts in the distribution and sources of income are also likely this year.
From October forward and for the following thirteen months, the planet of plenty graces the sign of Scorpio, bringing noticeable improvements to your environment as well as self-confidence to your personality. You are filled with faith in the universe – faith that everything will work out. You feel considerably freer to be yourself, and others tend to accept you more readily. You might need to guard against becoming too full of yourself or overly self-interested, however. There is also a risk of overindulgence. Until October, you are likely to find more joy in solitude and time to yourself. You are building your inner confidence. There can be real benefits to work done and actions taken behind the scenes.
Until October, you pay special attention to your spiritual life as well as your need for privacy. You can be especially supportive of others during this period, sometimes to an extreme extent. At times as well, you might feel like escaping into your own little private world, where it seems safer and happier. In a general sense, with Jupiter in your privacy sector, you don’t feel especially equipped to make big changes or choices. By October, you are ready to ask for what you deserve! This is when Jupiter begins its year-long transit of your own sign. Every twelve years or so, Jupiter transits one of the twelve zodiac signs typically for about a year. This happens for you starting in October 2017 and running until November 2018, and represents a positive new beginning for you.
People in your life who have grown accustomed to your “laying low” and the support you’ve given them with few conditions may need to adjust to this rebirth of sorts. However, overall, this is a positive transit in which you are coming into your own, discovering your need to express yourself, and drawing upon inner stores of confidence. Influences near the end of 2017 are excellent for romantic relationships and inspired creative projects.
The year ahead continues to add personal responsibilities to your plate, as 2016 did, dear Sagittarius, but 2017 also offers some real joy in your relationships and projects. You continue to learn how to stand on your own two feet, but you’re reaching out to others and people tend to be supportive. Your business income improves, and you continue to focus on going after your fondest hopes and wishes, moving beyond only material and career goals. 2017 is a fabulous year for networking and establishing pleasant (and, in some cases, possibly even profitable) friendships and group associations. Those of you in business for yourself could see an especially profitable year. Finances require some adjustments this year, and it’s important to watch for stretching too far.
Saturn continues to move through your sign, and its presence is most strongly felt by those born in the third decan of Sagittarius. Sagittarians born December 12-21 may face increased responsibilities this year, while those born earlier have moved beyond the critical period of this influence. You could be taking yourself more seriously, and feeling some pressure as a result. Your worst enemy now is the tendency to be self-critical. Keep your sense of humor! Look for ways to improve, but don’t get down on yourself for mistakes or regrets.
However, Saturn is moving through the final year in Sagittarius, ending its transit on December 19th and not to return for 28 years. As Saturn finishes up in your sign, it relieves you of extra responsibilities and concerns. Ideally, many of you are feeling a lighter load. The weaker areas of your life have been revealed and you’ve either strengthened or let go of them. You are stronger on your feet and more self-sufficient. By the end of 2017, you may very well feel that you can handle pretty much that comes your way. Even so, there is a humbler side revealed now as you have a more realistic sense of what you can accomplish and the limits of time and energy. A new cycle of buckling down with personal finances then begins.
Saturn in your sign is and has been sobering at times. This year, a stronger, more realistic, and more mature “you” emerges. As well, you’re loosening up more and more as Saturn gets support from innovative Uranus. This can be good news for your love life as things seem to settle. In recent years, there may have been some unreliability or changeability in love, and while this remains a theme in 2017, you’re finding ways to make it work. This influence suggests support from children, a romantic partner, or a creative project, or great interests in these areas that help you to build your confidence. There is more enjoyment in your life as you come to a better balance between work and play; and between responsibility and recreation. When it comes to love, review and reflect rather than make big decisions from March to mid-April. Delays may be blessings in disguise at this time.
Pressures and responsibilities notwithstanding, there can be exciting social developments in 2017. This is a time for making interesting connections. You particularly enjoy networking and sharing your expertise with your associates. Your social circle is expanding, although you might want to watch for excesses in this area. While the saying goes that you can never have too many friends, you don’t want to spread yourself thin. Similarly, avoid beginning so many new projects that you scatter yourself across them. You can be proud of your contributions to work and group efforts.
From October forward, you can experience a greater love of solitude. It’s not that you’re unsociable during this period – it’s more about feeling quite comfortable when alone, and there’s an important difference between the two states of mind. As well, you will find that putting others’ interests ahead of yours tends to bring you the most rewards. You may be doing a lot for others, but you’ll be enjoying doing it! You come into closer touch with your spiritual and emotional renewal needs now, and you might find that you’re doing a lot for others, usually quite voluntarily. Large decisions may be deferred to a later date. While there can be times that you feel “in limbo,” you can choose to take full advantage of this period for extra rest, and for learning to love your privacy and “alone time” with yourself. In fact, you might very well enjoy your own company! You’re embarking upon a very fortunate trend for your family life and private world.
Career matters are peaking for you in 2017, dear Capricorn. There can be promotions or some form of pleasant culmination in your professional or public life. A positive attitude towards work brings great rewards, as does the expression of integrity and honesty. Your professional manner is more friendly, likable, and charming this year. People in high positions look upon you especially favorably.
For many years now, you’ve been rediscovering yourself from the inside out, and ultimately learning that fear is the only thing holding you back in life–you are learning to fear less. There’s an internal struggle going on between what you want to be and what you want to achieve, and this struggle is at the root of energy fluctuations this year, as indecision can most certainly affect your drive and energy levels.
However, since December last year, a wonderful influence is with you in which blockages are released, particularly emotional ones and matters related to housing, family, and home life. This is a constructive period when solutions to long-standing problems arrive and help free you from mental pressure.
As well, even with some internal dilemmas regarding where you’re heading, your intuition tends to be spot on when it comes to career matters this year. Remember that the more you trust your intuition, the more it becomes available to you. There can be much to love about your career in 2017 and this positive attitude brings great rewards. Interesting events occur on the career front that seem almost magical at times. Connections that further your career goals are made and come seemingly out of the blue–at precisely the right moments.
You’re likely to find your joy in professional or public avenues this year until October. You’re also likely to receive some form of elevation – recognition, promotion, or the like. Some of you will be discovering your true calling, professionally speaking. What you’ve learned in 2016 can now be applied to your life in more concrete ways. You’re likely to be feeling very hopeful when it comes to your work, and this attitude can certainly attract positive circumstances into your life. You simply need to watch for a tendency to take on too much! Although it’s a great period for expansion and recognition on a professional level, and you should take advantage of it, choose your projects carefully. Don’t take on more than you can handle.
From October forward (and beyond), the focus is on making connections – very positive ones – as well as new ideas. Your job might bring you into contact with new people. With Jupiter expanding your social circle and your desire to plant seeds, so to speak, you simply need to watch for excesses. For example, you might begin so many new projects that you find yourself scattered across them. However, while many of them may not survive, some will, and can benefit you greatly down the road.
Your team spirit is very strong in the last quarter of the year, and you might make wonderful contributions to a group or with associates that you can truly feel proud of. Through groups or friends, you seek a sense of belonging and comfort, and you’re likely to find it! This is also a time for new and exciting ideas for future growth and happiness. You are entertaining dreams of where you’d like to go with your life, and while it was your professional life that you were more interested in earlier in 2017, you are more concerned with personal happiness, ideals, and long-term goals from October forward. There can be a cause that you work towards enthusiastically, and business income is likely to increase.
Looking to the past for the purpose of preparing more appropriately for the future is good, but wallowing in regrets and focusing on mistakes won’t help you in the least. Be realistic, make corrections, and move forward one step at a time. Many Capricorns are refining and altering their belief system this year, perhaps becoming stricter in their beliefs or spiritual practices. 2017 brings an inclination towards profound thought and exploration.
Saturn moves into your sign for a two-and-a-half year stay on December 19th. Saturn brings the need to take care of matters that you’ve left untied, unfinished, or that you’ve neglected altogether. The ultimate message here is to mature and to feel more in charge of your life, although you can sometimes feel singled out. Since Saturn is your ruler, you are in your own terms and very much in charge!
Most of the year, Jupiter blesses you with the ability to take things in stride as it harmonizes with your own sign, dear Aquarius. You are more intellectually curious this year, and you may have opportunities to travel, study, go abroad, expand your horizons, and meet people from diverse backgrounds. Business dealings, particularly long-distance ones and those involving publicity and promotion, are likely to be profitable in 2017. Life’s usual knocks don’t seem to upset you as much this year, and a positive attitude keeps things fresh. Certainly, 2017 has a nice feel to it for you.
Your curiosity is well known, and in 2017 you’ll have many opportunities to satisfy it. Much pleasure through higher learning, connecting with people far away or with completely different backgrounds than yours, and a broader scope of experiences is in your stars in 2017. Many of you will travel, and most will enjoy new and exciting adventures. For writers and artists, this is a year in which you’re likely to get published or expand your audience.
Career matters, while they might begin rather sluggishly in the first few months of the year, are approaching a very pleasant peak. Building your skills and expanding your reach are very advisable for most of 2017 as they will benefit you greatly as you move towards an especially successful period in your life — a trend that begins in October and sticks with you for thirteen months beyond that date.
You may lose patience with people who are too conservative or not as responsive and open as you, and some friendships are likely to face tests this year. The process may not always be pleasant, but in the end, you will be sorting out who is a genuine and who is a fairweather friend. Interestingly, you will find that as one door shuts, another seems to open magically. You are also called upon to come up with more solid plans for your future–not something that you typically like to do, but you will find it worthwhile and, ultimately, comforting.
Friendships taken on this year tend to be serious in quality – you might make friends through business, or you could be attracted to friends who are mature or who could teach you something important. There can be some slimming down in this area of life. Tests can weaken or break some friendships, but good ones strengthen. Your long-term goals mature further in 2017. You are thinking far into the future, and practicality is a huge consideration – in fact, it’s a much bigger factor than usual. Marrying your vision with a realistic plan and you have a very winning combination.
2017 brings rewards as your spirited attitude and competent manner get attention. An influence with you until October stimulates an attitude that attracts warm energy into your life. Your view of life is broad, and even panoramic. You are setting your sights high. Do not ignore opportunities to further your education and experience – you’ll use the lessons you learn from them to take better advantage of Jupiter’s transit of your career sector beginning in October, which can bring more chances of promotion, a better position, or simply more enjoyment and fulfillment from your job. It’s not wise to rest on your laurels or to take on too many new responsibilities, as much as you feel equipped to do so. However, this is an excellent time for reaching a little higher than usual and making a stronger impact. You are approaching a career peak of sorts.
In the last quarter of 2017, you are likely to enjoy some form of promotion, positive exposure, or career recognition. You are learning to “own” what you do, and you’re liable to feel more comfortable in a position of authority. You may take on a managerial position. People in high places take a shine to you.
Struggles between clinging to the tried and true and embracing the new become part of the past this year as your ruler, Uranus, forms a healthy trine aspect with Saturn. Finding the right balance between tradition and progress is within your reach in 2017. In 2017 and 2018, relationship statuses are likely to change. As well, you’re being urged by the cosmos to make contact and to try not to fall back on an independent stance. Cooperate, negotiate, and enjoy the benefits these bring. You’ll find that partnering up brings wonderful benefits to your life this year and next!
The year ahead is one of increased intimacy and self-understanding, dear Pisces. While you may feel that you come into your own more towards the end of 2017, the year is excellent for inner growth and improved attention to work, responsibilities, and resources.
Money from others or outside sources is much improved this year, whether it’s through loans, refunds, tax rebates, or the like. Non-tangible support is also abundant–assistance from others comes more readily than usual. If you are looking for support, especially financial, this is a good year for doing so. Sexuality and intimacy are enhanced this year as you discover new depths of experience. Sexual opportunities are likely to abound, or your focus on one partner becomes more expansive, warm, and intimate.
Work, however, brings increased demands this year. Significant projects may come to fruition in 2017, and this can be a time for reaping their rewards, but there can be some disappointment now if you haven’t achieved what you wanted to accomplish. Otherwise, you might enjoy great successes and advancements. You are more accountable for what you have and haven’t done, and particularly aware of your social standing. Circumstances conspire to remind you of the importance of structure, responsibility, and reputation in your life. It’s time to realign your goals with what’s inside. Many of you will be making changes such that your career path better reflects the principles closest to your heart.
And, while there can be continued hard work this year, it feels more purposeful in 2017, and you can enjoy some of the benefits now, not only down the road. You may have felt you’ve been working at cross purposes with other life departments in 2016, but this year, things seem to come together better, and there’s no better motivator than when you see some positive results. At the tail-end of 2017, pressure on performance eases tremendously. There may be a new job or improved working position that better suits your talents, ideas, and schedules for many of you.
Financially speaking, you are moving towards a more active, slightly more risk-taking approach to making money. However, you are better able to combine your conservative approach to career and more innovative approach to money quite eloquently in 2017, making it work for you. You are practical yet creative and ready to make necessary changes to improve your life, and this is a winning combination. The second week of May and the first week of June are especially powerful for money matters.
The year begins with an alignment of Mars and Neptune, your ruler, in your sign, and this imprints the year with more personal magnetism and allure for you. People are drawn to your magical qualities this year. The final eclipse in a set occurring in your sign takes place in February, giving you a real boost towards independence, confidence, and remaking your image more authentically and beneficially. This is a nudge towards expressing yourself more confidently. You’re also beginning a new cycle this year in which you’re challenged to get to a better work-life balance. There is less pressure on finding or improving close relationships and more easy enjoyment of the people in your life.
From March to mid-April is a period of reassessments of your emotional needs, love life, and money situation. This is a period for looking back before you move forward. Taking decision-making slowly may be necessary, or it comes naturally now as you may be in a state of limbo. Some misunderstandings and delays are possible now, but you come out of the period seeing your needs and people in your life with new eyes, and better off for it. You’re particularly confident and ready to pursue your heart’s desire from mid-June to mid-July, although there can be some confusion surrounding the level of a relationship or you could be feeling torn about your feelings for someone. October is excellent for committed relationships.
From October forward, you are in a favorable yearlong cycle that boosts your coping skills and pulls you out of yourself as you explore the world more confidently. Consider beefing up your education, writing about your experiences, or possibly expanding your experiences through travel. Your spirit is quite adventuresome. You can enjoy a more positive, forward-looking outlook on life. Less concern about problems that typically would have you worrying is likely during this cycle. You deserve it!
You also benefit from a new influence in your life that sticks with you and realizes its full potential in 2018, but that begins near the end of 2017. People you meet or experiences now open your perspective wide, and there is a sense of opening up to greater faith and confidence. You have stronger desires to grow, learn, travel, and improve, as well as opportunities to match. There is less of a material approach to your life as your goals incorporate more intangible, spiritual, and humanitarian interests. There can be good experiences through teachers and teaching.
