This is a year of growth for you. You will see yourself growing in all areas – relationships, business, and skills. It will be difficult at times, but that’s to be expected with growing pains. Ride out the tough times, understanding that they’re necessary and part of your growth. There is a motivating, ambitious feel to this time. Focus should be on strengthening, building, and developing your connections.

You will experience some troubles in existing relationships, most likely from your partner’s need of freedom and extravagant ways. However, for the most part, you are likely to enjoy an improved social life during this cycle. You learn a lot through your experiences and interactions with your important “other.” Combining your resources, talents, and/or money with those of a partner can improve your financial outlook. You might also benefit from managing others’ resources and talents without the “teaming up” part.

Otherwise, it’s a strong period for opening yourself up to others and for feeling more confident about your emotional depths. This is a period when you can quite successfully purge yourself of some of your inner demons, guilt, and buried psychological problems. While there can be some reality checks at times, from December forward is an exceptionally strong period for intimacy and psychological growth

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

This year is yours. The one you’ve been waiting for all this time. The one where you finally make your dreams into a reality. You’ve been cautious and anxiously waiting for your work to pay off, for that perfect time to talk to that special person in your life, for your life to begin.Your partnerships, relating abilities, and powers of negotiation begin to grow and expand. New partnership opportunities can arrive now, or the chance to bring fresh energy to an existing committed relationship emerges.

You find more joy in your work (as long as you don’t take on too much), self-improvement endeavors, and taking care of your health. If you provide a service to others, it is likely to prosper. You are more successful in hiring people to work for you, if applicable, and improvements to your working environment are likely. It can be easier than usual to find employment now. You may get a new job during this cycle or significantly improve an existing one. Work tends to be very available to you. There is a tendency now to focus on the details of your work, and you might sometimes feel a little overwhelmed with monotonous tasks.

This can be a time for transforming your working life and when you put a tremendous amount of effort into your work or daily routines.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

tumblr_oarubpycqx1qzhvd4o1_400

Your focus is on having a fun time, enjoying life, and expressing yourself in freeing, rewarding ways. Your romantic and creative worlds continue to expand and grow. You are learning to express yourself playfully and creatively without apology, and more willing to take some personal risks in order to do so.

This is a time of discovery of affections as well as your creative potential. Generosity with others, particularly lovers and children, increases, as you feel that you’re gaining rather than losing when you give. Latent artistic talents can be coaxed out. Creative output is more lucrative or emotionally rewarding.

For those of you who are in committed partnerships, there can be some strains on your bond this year. A partner might feel like a “heavy” in your life, and any feelings of restriction that you feel or have felt in this area of life may seem magnified in your mind now. A partner might also seem cautious, distant, critical, or defensive. You need to open your mind to the possibility that a partner is providing you with important life lessons – about traditions, simplifying your life, and responsibilities. While this might seem difficult now, you might later look back on this time of your life and think, “Oh yeah – now I see it.”

For those of you who are not in committed relationships, it is quite unlikely that you’ll enter a new long-term partnership or commitment rashly. Some of you might begin one, but will do so quite cautiously and carefully. Some of you might be attracted to older or more mature and established people as partnership “material”.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

tumblr_np12clmu9n1u6e35wo1_500-1

Your inner world, family life, domestic activities, and domestic arrangements continue to expand and grow. Relations with family can be especially pleasant and supportive. Generally speaking, more positive energy is brought to your domestic world, and long-standing problems with family might be put to bed.

Uncertainty in your career or lack of definition of your life plan and lack of direction can be a struggle and can impact your feelings of security and family life. There can be a conflict between partnership and family life. You may be wanting to please too many people, and overdoing things leaves you exhausted, as it seems there is never enough time and energy to meet all your needs. Another potential problem is feeling the need to frequently have to choose between staying close to home or sticking with familiar paths versus sticking your neck out, traveling, or expanding.

Your romantic and creative worlds begin to expand and grow. You are learning to express yourself playfully and creatively without apology, and you are more willing to take some personal risks in order to do so!

Leo (July 23 – August 22) 

tumblr_nca141gmyc1qc4l4yo1_500

Your communications increase and expand. Your ability and desire to express yourself are greater now, and your personal interests grow.

There can be a real tendency to want to do it all, forgetting your limits in terms of time and energy. Taking on too many projects or becoming too entrenched in details can also interfere with higher learning pursuits or travels. You could experience some feelings of disillusionment with, or interruptions of, current studies or belief systems.

Some of you could find romance through communications, new mental interests, or studies. There can be improved relationships with a child or lover, largely through opening up the lines of communication and bonding as a result. You could be finding that transportation options now available make life a little more enjoyable.

However, for the most part, you are likely to enjoy more opportunities through your communications and contact with others during this cycle in 2017.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

tumblr_nd0r73udea1raddnzo1_500

Money, personal possessions, and self-worth continue to expand and grow. Your desire for security and comfort is hearty now, and you’ll pursue these things with more confidence and verve than usual. You feel that you deserve more! This attitude can get you places.

This year is strong for attracting more money from your professional endeavors and for expanding a business. You might also more easily attract support from others, but be careful if you are suddenly in the position to receive, for example, a credit line or sizable loan – spend wisely. You should certainly watch for overspending.

Be on the alert for an attitude towards money that is careless. If you are accumulating personal possessions too quickly, this can lead to clutter and disorganization. If you’re overconfident about your ability to make money, then you might take foolish risks.

Overall, you deserve everything you will achieve and will continue to find success…just be careful once you get it.

Libra (Sept 23 – Oct 22) 

tumblr_nj81zzhklk1txhq16o1_500

Jupiter is in your sign! This approximately one-year transit comes only every twelve years and serves to bring you out of your shell. You’re ready to take on the world. This is a time for exploring your needs and pursuing your dreams.

There can be new projects begun now that have long-term potential. You may not yet know where you’re headed with them, but you’re certainly enthusiastic about beginning anew. Expanding your horizons through higher learning or travel might also figure strongly. This is a time for aligning your behavior with what you believe is right. You are taking more “me” time, which is in fact long overdue.

You are seeking out a new beginning – a fresh start, of sorts – and your desire to do right is especially strong. Work or projects that you have been working on in private or behind the scenes may now begin to pay off.

Scorpio: (October 23 – November 21) 

tumblr_nl6476tsmk1u9uw7ro1_500

Matters from the past are magnified in your life now. You tend to sort through the attitudes that serve you well, and the behaviors that need to go in order for you to grow and improve. You may also be especially compassionate and empathetic. This may be a good period for volunteer work, or for work done behind the scenes, in private, or in the helping professions.

You might often be tempted to escape your everyday responsibilities and challenges, and should avoid reliance on drugs, drinking, or other “glamorous” forms of escape.

Jupiter’s influence is generally considered positive, and it is, ultimately. However, it acts to magnify the area of the chart that it affects, and at times it can be uncomfortable if you are having difficulties in this area. In your case, if you are lonely or if you feel helpless, and if you have troubles facing your past, then this influence can heighten these issues. Ultimately, it’s for the good. The cosmos asks you now to surrender some of your attachments and to surrender to the unknown. Releasing control is necessary.

Sagittarius (November 22December 21)

tumblr_mrmy3iefqr1r0na0so1_500

Your connections to others, group associations, and friendships continue to expand and grow. This can be a time of budding friendships and/or group involvements. New people may come into your life and seek out your friendship, or existing friendships may be refreshed or enhanced. Opportunities to advance or for new learning experiences can come through associates, friendships, and networking.

Matters from the past are magnified in your life now. You tend to sort through the attitudes that serve you well, and the behaviors that need to go in order for you to grow and improve – a cycle that lasts until November 2018 when Jupiter will enter your sign and you are ready to share yourself more fully with the world.

There is stronger joy in being of service to others, but do be careful that you take care of yourself as well.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19) 

tumblr_mmxzsbr9bl1rhusgzo1_500

Jupiter continues its transit of the top of your solar chart. Your ambitions, career, business goals, and reputation continue to grow and develop. Your talents and skills are recognized now like seldom before. All of the hard work you’ve put in begins to pay off and is rewarded – or at the very least, recognized. This influence will be with you until October 2017.

You are in the limelight in some way during this cycle. 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. Watch also for gossip or mishandling of information. Be wary of situations that could get blown out of proportion or misunderstood.

This can be a time of significant progress in the outer world, a fortunate change in status, and increased recognition. This is a time when believing in yourself, your competency, and your ability to take the lead opens up opportunities to you.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18) 

tumblr_nemtqezg801rghlwio1_500

Your belief systems, learning experiences, and hunger for adventure continue to grow and expand at a rapid pace. You are feeling more courageous and spirited, and you sense that there is more “out there” for you to learn and take in.

From October 10th onward, Jupiter transits the top of your solar chart. Your ambitions, career, business goals, and reputation grow and develop. Your talents and skills are recognized now like never before. All of the hard work you’ve put in begins to pay off and is rewarded – or at the very least, recognized. This influence will be with you until November 2018.

You are in the limelight in some way during this cycle. 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.

Overall, this can be a time of significant progress in the outer world, a fortunate change in status, and increased recognition.

Pisces (February 19March 20)

tumblr_mze5k0ymwn1r4i9nzo1_500

there is a wonderful, continued focus on your intimate world – a possible deepening of a relationship, or an increased understanding of your own inner workings. Your intimate life enlarges and expands, bringing you more joy and new discoveries. During this cycle, you learn to embrace inner change in order to feel more empowered.

This influence is with you until October 2017, and it’s time to grab opportunities that help you to feel empowered and on top of your life. Conversations are deep and lead to discovery. Sexuality is richer. There can be benefits and support coming your way through others, whether it’s money back from the government, an easier time getting loans or mortgages, a partner’s income increases, or you inherit something valuable. Combining your own resources, talents, and/or money with a partner can improve your own financial outlook.

There may be a metamorphosis of sorts when it comes to your profession or career and life path goals this year, and it’s likely to feel “right.”

Otherwise, it’s a strong period for opening yourself up to others and for feeling more confident about your own emotional depths. This is a period when you can quite successfully purge yourself of some of your inner demons, guilt, and buried psychological problems. Much of the year, but particularly in August, you are in excellent shape for work, research, and stability that comes from a sense that you are supported and backed.
