Aquarius 2017 Horoscope
You’re set for a fabulous year of friendship, thanks to expansive Jupiter in Sagittarius, your solar Eleventh House. It’s an ideal opportunity to connect with people, widen your circle, and fill your address book with exciting new personalities. The more people you meet and get to know, the greater the benefits; some will be your link to luck. A club or professional organization is an easy way to get acquainted with new people, or you might decide to get more involved in a group you’ve been associated with for some time.
Either way, you’re likely to be offered a leadership role, which can increase your visibility and networking power. This year could bring rewards for past efforts, such as an award, promotion, or raise. Jupiter also encourages you to review and update short- and long- term personal and professional goals. Be selective and narrow the list to your top priorities rather than give in when Jupiter urges you to do it all.
After a whirlwind year, you’ll be ready to take a breather when Jupiter moves on to Capricorn, your solar Twelfth House of self-renewal, December 18. Your social life will become temporarily less important and you’ll enjoy having time to yourself for your own interests. It’s also a time to look inward as you prepare to launch a new twelve-year period when Jupiter enters your sign in the next year.
Saturn is in the final months of its two-year trip through Leo, your solar Seventh House of close relationships. This is, above all, a growth opportunity—if you choose to make it one. Take note of your interactions with others and how they and you react in various situations. With this knowledge you can refine your approach to improve communication and thus strengthen ties. It’s also an important learning experience as you begin a seven-year climb to what can be a career pinnacle. Supporters gained now may be just the people who help advance your aims in the future. Also use this period to address personal or business differences you consider to be unfinished business. Resolving these matters will free you to move on, whether or not you remain in touch. On another level, check credentials if you need to consult a professional, such as an accountant, realtor, or attorney. The same applies to a potential business partner. Saturn advances into Virgo, your solar Eighth House of shared resources, September 2. This can be a period of
financial gain as well as one during which you should pay off debt, rather than incur more. You’ll also want to think long term regarding investments and retirement income, even if your leisure years are far in the future.
With Uranus, your ruling planet, influencing your money, you have the power and the freedom to choose how you spend it, save it, earn it, and invest it. Wise choices made now will be to your benefit for many years to come. Moneymaking opportunities can pop up at the least expected moment as Uranus reaches the midpoint of Pisces, your solar Second House of personal resources. But take all factors into consideration before you jump because this quirky planet can just as easily trigger a loss. Unexpected expenses also are likely, so a conservative financial approach will help ensure you have funds available when needed. Save all you can, and learn to walk away when the urge to splurge takes hold. Budgeting is equally important—and you’ll do yourself a favor if you can learn (or continue) to live within one.
Spirituality, intuition, and creativity are your guiding lights with Neptune in Aquarius. Now in the tenth of its fourteen-year transit of your solar First House, Neptune continues to broaden your perspective of the world around you. You may take a greater interest in those who are less fortunate as Neptune enhances your humanitarian spirit. But you’re also in a highly sensitive and sympathetic period, so listen to your head as well as your heart and don’t let others sway your thinking. Direct some of Neptune’s energy into developing your creativity through a hobby, the arts, or a group that helps awaken your hidden talents. Intuition can give you the edge in many situations; nurturing your sixth sense—and listening to it— will enhance your spiritual connection with the universe and reinforce self-confidence. Have faith. Trust and believe in yourself.
With Pluto concluding its transit of Sagittarius, 2017 is the year to complete what you began twelve years ago, when Jupiter also was in Sagittarius. If you became involved with a special-interest group, club, or organization any time since twelve years ago, your efforts culminate now, and you may take on a more visible and influential role. The same is true of your career. There is, however, a potential downside to this otherwise significant planetary influence: you could be subject to—or feel compelled to initiate—power plays. Guard against this
because such manipulative behavior can have a detrimental effect on what you hope to achieve. Your intensely focused perspective could make it difficult to see what’s obvious to those around you, so it might be wise to periodically ask a trusted friend for feedback.
This year’s eclipses in Pisces and Virgo, your solar Second and Eighth Houses, reinforce the financial emphasis of Saturn and Uranus and encourage you to be financially conservative. Protect and increase your resources.
