ARIES Mar 21 - Apr 20

Local Business

Aries has excitedly embraced life during recent years, with breath-taking highs and scary lows. 2017 shows signs of settling as you get more serious about life, the direction it will be taking, and how to practically achieve your goals, with signs of these imminent changes later in the year. In the meantime, love, education, exploration of foreign shores, and career and legal interests are still at the top of your list. The year starts out strongly for all these interests, with important events occurring during January 1-24, August 22-September 2. In particular, May 10-28 and November 4-18 is a progressive period for most of these matters (except love). You won’t miss out on the delights of romance, with extremely happy times and love colouring your life until October 10, especially during February 4-April 3 and April 28-June 6. 

TAURUS Apr 21 – May 21

Taurus feels they’ve been swimming against the tide where work is concerned, but the shore is in sight with major developments next year. 2017 is about positioning yourself to take advantage of those developing trends as you wait to catch that wave into shore. You’ll be pursuing better qualifications, with good opportunities emerging during January 1-24, May 10-28, August 22-September 2, November 4-18. These dates are also good for work. 2017 also proliferates with good job opportunities with great benefits. However, March 23-April 7, July 29-August 11 have the potential to be troublesome so don’t get over confident or overstep your limits with work or health, or things that have legal ramifications. February 21-March 10 and September 24-October 2, can also bring unsettled work conditions. 

GEMINI May 22 – June 22  

2017 is a fairly important year for Gemini natives, where they need to work on relationships and partnerships to ensure sustainability. January 1-24, May 10-28, August 22-September 2, November 4-18 are good in this regard. It is also important not to take on too many financial commitments because they are more likely to become burdensome in 2018. Avoid the desire to wheel and deal in relationships and money during March 23-April 7, July 29-August 11 as it is likely to end in disaster. Also, keep steady during the separative conditions of February 21-March 10 and September 24-October 2, when impulsiveness is detrimental. Build on the positive potential of the other dates, as well as February 4-April 3 and April 28-June 6, both of which are delightful times for harmonising relationships.

CANCER Jun 23 – Jul 23 

You’re looking for relief from responsibilities during the coming year, as uncertain conditions and heavy workloads have been detrimental to your health and happiness. 2017 heralds the end of uncertain conditions and a shift in responsibilities, where others start to assume their fair share of responsibilities. 2017 builds towards these conditions, particularly during January 1-24, May 10-28, August 22-September 2, November 4-18, but you could meet with some resistance during March 23-April 7, July 29-August 11. However, one of the luckiest and happiest periods in 11yrs is looming in the 13 months from October 10, reviving romancing, and enriching your life through children and recreational activities. February 4-April 3 and April 28-June 6 also bring happiness and hope.

LEO Jul 24 - Aug 23

2017 continues to bring a variety of experiences through travel, education, and legals. Many aspects of this are quite interesting and enjoyable, especially meeting people and building solid relationships during May 10-28 and November 4-18. You’ll be pretty happy with associated events during February 4-April 3 and April 28-June 6. However, February 21-March 10 and September 24-October 2 are likely to be temporarily destabilising. You’ll enjoy both the buzz of daily life, local contacts, and family especially on January 1-24, August 22-September 2, November 28-December 8. Home will generally be a happier, more comfortable place for the 13 months from October 10. Work is pretty cushy at the moment, and enjoyable, so make the most of it while it lasts. More will be expected of you next year!

VIRGO Aug 24 - Sep 23

For Virgo, home, health and money top the list of interests for 2017. There are many positive things happening in and around the home but which also bring additional responsibilities. This could include construction of a new or existing home. Best dates for these interests are January 1-24, May 10-28, August 22-September 2, November 4-18. However, difficulties can arise on February 21-March 10, March 23-April 7, July 29-August 11 and September 24-October 2, perhaps with your budget; while February 4-April 3 and April 28-June 6 are good for these sorts of issues. Health seems to be changeable during 2017 but is manageable: just follow up on curious or unusual symptoms. Life is generally enjoyable and love and romance are both ideal and stable: a good year ahead.

LIBRA Sep 24 - Oct 23  

In the past few years, life has taught Libra to be resilient and self-sufficient. You’ve adapted well whilst finding comfort in the routines of daily life. More recently, a renewed enjoyment of life has inspired fresh hopes and dreams, which will carry you forward through most of 2017. You are able to plan well and circumstances are quite reliable, especially during January 1-24, May 10-28, August 22-September 2, November 4-18, stabilising relationships and associations. There is a rebirth of aspirations and social life in the year ahead, and you will feel more connected with people especially during February 4-April 3 and April 28-June 6, when romance and happiness is fostered. Financially, you’ll be moving ahead in leaps and bounds, especially during the third quarter of the year, bringing well-paid work. 

SCORPIO Oct 24 - Nov 22 

 Changes in career and domestic life are signalled during 2017 as your life moves in new directions. Scorpio natives aren’t really happy with changeable work conditions, so are exploring alternative options. The end goals of this are better pay and greater happiness, with significant improvements in the last three months of 2017. In the interim, excellent opportunities exist to improve your income, perhaps including a promotion: the best times are January 1-24, May 10-28, August 22-September 2, November 4-18. Hand-in-hand with these developments, you’ll find that domestic conditions settle and you have more time to enjoy life through recreational interests, your children, and family connections, particularly on January 1-24, August 22-September 2, and November 28-December 8. 

SAGITTARIUS Nov 23 - Dec 21 

With increased financial responsibilities and heavy schedules in the past couple of years, you’ve felt less like yourself. However, in 2017 you seem to be getting your act together and mastering the challenges that life has laid before you. You’ll demonstrate these capabilities well during January 1-24, May 10-28, August 22-September 2, November 4-18, enabling you to find time to enjoy yourself and engineer better financial prospects. You’ve recently been inspired by dreams and social opportunities, and this trend will continue until October 10. You’ll take lessons learned and time to reassess them, and successfully implement them, as the personal weight of responsibilities lifts in December and you feel more like you again. 

CAPRICORN DEC 22 - JAN 19

Whilst Capricorn natives have a natural resilience to life’s vicissitudes, in recent times you are likely to have felt a little weaker, forcing you onto the side lines. During 2017 you will garner strength from your experiences during January 1-24, May 10-28, August 22-September 2, November 4-18, and your confidence will increase as you prepare to reassert yourself from December onwards. Dreams and goals will motivate you to reach for the stars from October, preparing you for a much more invigorated role during 2018. In the interim period, whilst you are optimistic about the direction your life is taking, you will still need to be discriminative, aware of hidden pitfalls, and not be tempted to overstep the mark by forcing situations prematurely. 

AQUARIUS JAN 20 - FEB 18

2017 continues to be an exciting and productive year, in much the same way as 2016, but with better opportunities to realise your goals and capitalise on important associations. Look to January 1-24, May 10-28, August 22-September 2, November 4-18 to forge ahead. You are inspired by new ideals, excited by travel, and are looking at ways to improve yourself, with January 1-24, August 22-September 2 offering the best opportunities. However, February 21-March 10 and September 24-October 2 are less fruitful, and are times when caution should be exercised, particularly on long-distance journeys or in legal matters. From October 10, your success potential is ramped up, making it easier to realise your goals.

PISCES FEB 19 - MAR 20

You are gearing up for major changes so that there is greater financial stability and life is less demanding. However, these trends don’t start kicking in till late 2017. Change is definitely imminent for work and health matters, gaining strength as the year progresses. Some excellent trends exist where you are able to capitalise on work and career opportunities, such as January 1-24, May 10-28, August 22-September 2, November 4-18. Financially, you are in quite a strong position but need to be careful about wasting your resources, especially on February 21-March 10, March 23-April 7, July 29-August 11, September 24-October 2. By year’s end you should be ready to savour your dreams, with more overseas travel, study, or writing on the agenda in the 13 months from October 10.
