january astrology January Astrology 2017

January begins with Mars and Neptune together, waking up to the lingering effects of the extra glass of wine, the late night, or having indulged in too many sweet and savory treats will be felt.

On the other hand Neptune Mars to start the New Year is a perfect combination to begin 2017 with a commitment to your spirituality, artistic endeavors, and physical activities such as Yoga, tai chi, swimming, dance, or really any sport that you find a spiritual or artistic connection with.

It is true that Mercury is retrograde and many new commitments that start could be side tracked when Mercury moves direct on the 8th. However it is also a time to return to an activity once again, a re-commitment, especially if it is one that is short term project that can be completed before Mercury goes direct.

Venus moves into idealistic Pisces on the 3rd, a sweet and gentle Venus. Every year when Venus is in Pisces it is a time to connect to loving from afar, accepting others as they are, even if you are not able to agree with their actions or stay in a relationship with them. It is the longing for a soul mate, the illusive partner that understands and completes the other. Relationships that begin under a Venus in Pisces time can start off with the rose colored glasses, be very romantic, and many times are long distance and when scrutinized at another level, not realistic in fitting into the other part of your life.

Astrology Forecast for January 2017

The full moon in Cancer on the 12th holds extra power as it is directly connected to the Uranus Jupiter opposition. The Jupiter Uranus connection is the gift of freedom and independence to be our own person, to live according to our unique soul’s path as we accept others with compassion and reach out to help those who are unable to help themselves. It is a powerful time where sudden insight can come to the light of consciousness that will illuminate your path of walking the razors edge of living in the world but not of the world. Or in other words the ability to have balance of taking care of the physical necessities and commitments you have while pursuing the path that speaks to your higher consciousness and souls path.

The full moon is on the day of the new phase of Venus and Pisces, another indication from the universal guides to remind us to embrace and embody love, wisdom and compassion. There can be deep longing and strong emotions that surface with this full moon. Thoughts of what could have been, might have been, or negative thinking of how you could have done life different surface. It is important under these moments to release sadness or heaviness in order to embrace the higher element of spiritual wisdom and growth.

Also on this day Venus is at her peak, meaning that she is at the point furthest away from the sun as she will be in this cycle. She will be shining brightly in the skies.

The sun enters Aquarius on the 19th, the day that Mars is square Saturn- a push to accomplish projects and move beyond obstacles.

As the days move towards the Aquarius new moon on the 27th Mars is in its last degrees of Pisces which is brings emphasis to the full moon energy of standing up for the downtrodden and effort towards a more compassionate society. Unfortunately Mars in Pisces can also be misguided idealism and martyrdom.

January Astrology 2017 forecast

The new moon in Aquarius is a breath of fresh air. Mercury has crossed its shadow point of the last retrograde cycle and Mars is on the brink of entering into Aries where he is in his home territory bringing another round of excitement and enthusiasm.

Jupiter in Libra is slowing down preparing for its retrograde in early February at a degree that represents blessings and fortune.

The new moon brings with it the message of acceptance, tolerance, sisterhood, and the wisdom of breaking free from the obligations of the past that no longer serve who you are or what you believe. Intuitively you may feel that now is the time to begin a new project that you have been anticipating. Whether it is something you want to learn, going after a new career, a new hobby, or a different health routine. This will be the ONLY new moon we have this year when all of the traditional planets are moving direct. No one is retrograde between January 8th and February 5th. An unusual phenomena and one to take advantage of when you want to begin something with the wind in your sails moving you full speed ahead.

Aries    Taurus   Gemini   Cancer   Leo    Virgo   Libra   Scorpio   Sagittarius   Capricorn   Aquarius   Pisces 

Remember last year?  Here is 2016

January begins with the planets in direct motion spring boarding the New Year with enthusiasm to have 2016 a year filled with all kinds of possibilities. Embrace your dreams, as they have more potential to come true than many other years.

Even with Mercury moving retrograde early in the month, (Jan 5th) it will help in gathering information and reassessing what needs to be done to fulfil the plans ahead. Mercury begins its retrograde in Aquarius, catching up with friends and seeking innovative solutions are plentiful. Yet this retrograde is intense as the Sun joins Pluto, diving us into the depths of intuition to embrace our strength and be empowered.

Jupiter moves retrograde 2 days later sending positive energy to uplift confidence and a can do attitude. Remember that Jupiter in Virgo, although not Jupiter’s favorite hometown, brings out the details needed and hones the schedule of daily life to include healthy routines and habits that can lead towards the discipline needed to accomplish what has begun.

Mars moves out of Libra on January 3rd moving into Scorpio, the sign it rules. Mars is able to get a lot done in Scorpio, although the energy wields a sharp sword when crossed or threatened. Take advantage of this powerful ability to focus your motivation to keep on track with the decisions you have made.

The 8th of January begins a new cycle of Saturn in Sagittarius with Venus, there are only 2 Saturn Venus conjunctions in Sagittarius in a 29 year time frame. The importance of this cycle is to get serious about what you love and value when it comes to travel, risk taking and adventure, knowledge and education, and your personal philosophical, religious and views in life. That is the first step, the next is to bring into existence that which is important to you. Setting your intentions in these areas over the next 45 days are important in being able to have them manifest in your life over the next several years.

The Sun shifting into Aquarius on the 20th is a breath of fresh air and brings with it the ability to detach from problems and seek another perspective to discover solutions.

Mercury spends the last 10 days of January conjunct Pluto demanding contemplation that will result in ideas of how to carry out plans for the year ahead. Being willing to let go of old ideas and challenge the collective mindset is part of the message.

As Mercury moves direct on the 25th the meditation and visualization you have spent time on since December 19th will begin to take form.

Aries: Clear out debt, financial and obligations, think how to advance in your life’s work.

 

 

Taurus: Stand your ground with confidence only after contemplating your deepest intentions. Rethink what constitutes a joy filled life.

Virgo: Time to rediscover your hidden talents and spend time having fun. Intellect is sharpened as clear communication is necessary to get the job done.

 

Libra: Money issues versus abundance in your life coincides with reevaluating early conditioning from others expectations for your life.

 

Scorpio: Mars moving into your sign brings to you inspiration and motivation to do whatever you set your mind to.

 

Sagittarius: Rumblings from deep within stir intuition to listen carefully to what you sense is going on behind closed doors. Ideas of greater prosperity that lead to freedom keep changing from one idea to the next.
