For Your Consideration: What Astrology Indicates About The Year 2017

Let's close out the week with a look at the year ahead, shall we? Here's what's in store for you, astrology-wise.

We’re six days into 2017, which means we still have no idea, really, what kind of year it will be. Enter the astrology experts: Whether you subscribe to astrology or not, there’s no denying that even hearing what said astrologers predict is kind of fascinating.

So what’s on the docket for 2017? Well, we will have many opportunities to embrace and move forward with new developments in technology and politics (the latter already being very evident); it will be imperative for us to use this for positive action. 2017 also brings potential for beginning anew—or re-writing old stories, meaning we should be ready to leap forward, past our comfort zones. A new foundation is in the process of being created and we need to plant our seeds wisely.

And here, the details, broken out by sign:

Aries (March 21 – April 19) Mars will be passing through your sign in late February, meaning you might transition into a hectic or stressful period. You may be shifting your living situation or personal belongings around (something that you may have begun last year). Mars will also bring excitement and adventure into your life, but make time for quiet reflection and introspection, or you might miss an important message. Remember to find time to slow down. Your career and long-term partnerships will shine through.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20) It may feel like big things are happening right around your birthday, with the potential for an exciting opportunity. You may have already begun planning things behind the scenes, keeping your plans of transition to yourself. There is a chance for some professional advancements this year —keep your eyes and ears open for a very special door to open up for you.

Gemini (May 21 – June 21) Mercury goes into retrograde in mid-April and could bring about stressful times for you. However, things straighten up come May. You have an allure about you this year, and could attract a new relationship or that big job you’ve been wanting. Love is definitely on the horizon, and a theme for this year. But be careful—make sure you don’t go chasing the wrong person, place or thing.

Cancer (June 22 – July 22) Be careful about allowing your “business” to be known on the street. This year could bring some invasions of your privacy. You’re going to attract a lot of attention. The challenge will be trying to figure out how to make this attention work for you, and use it to your advantage. This is a wonderful year for your health, and finding healthy routines and sticking to them, will prove beneficial throughout 2017.

Leo (July 23 – August 22) This year is going to be a bit rough for Leo. The beginning of the year begins positively, with productivity at a high. However, change is coming and it is unavoidable, so batten down the hatches and hold on for the ride. This doesn’t necessarily have to be looked at as negative; just learn to prepare and adjust as the bumps come along. If you can tame your attitude, you’ll find that things will begin to work your way by the end of the year.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22) This year brings big changes for Virgo, which may swing you from one extreme to the next, and this might be an ongoing trend in 2017 for you. You may receive some pretty big news in the first half of the year. Try to drop the perfectionism this year, and learn when “close” is good enough.

Libra (September 23 – October 23) An eclipse pattern may make this year a curious one for you. Don’t jump to conclusions or make impulsive decisions, especially towards the middle of the summer. Take your time, and look deeper for answers. Pay closer attention to your finances this year, as you may need to scale back in order to reap rewards later.

Scorpio (October 24 – November 21) Another sign that should expect lots of big changes, but for Scorpio they will have more lasting and long-term effects. You may be dealing with hot topics, so prepare yourself to handle them carefully. Handle conflicts with others with diplomacy—even though you can find that difficult to do. Having the “last word” may come back to haunt you—try listening, and speak with compassion.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) This year will be relatively easy to handle for you. There is a continued focus on work and career issues, and you may spend a good chunk of the year sorting this stuff out. May could be the month where you might have to ask yourself the tough questions about your job, and follow up with some big changes. You may find yourself exploring territories which you never thought possible. Keeping an upbeat attitude will help you sail through. 

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19) Changes may occur rapidly as the year begins, and you may be faced with some drastic decision-making or redirection of the course you’re currently on. These are good changes, however, as they work towards a greater good. Recognize this editing of your life as a step in a better direction. Romance looks good for 2017, and a new relationship may spark up before May. Have patience with all of the incoming changes—they will hold positive outcomes for you.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) This year has you feeling ready for transitions. Aquarius will feel like moving—there will be an urge to pick up and go. This year will ask you to be more self-sufficient, as some foundational changes will begin to emerge. There is an anticipation for the new year, and you are ready for a new and fresh start.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20) You will be very active in the beginning of the year, with lots to do and a full agenda. There is an emphasis on communication this year, and transmitting important messages. The middle of the year may hold some upheaval, but you will land safely back on your feet afterwards.
