The 2017 Astrology shows that we’ve got another interesting year ahead, however, it starts off a bit slow as the communication planet, Mercury, is retrograde for the first week of the New Year. We will ease into 2017, but that won’t last long as the second half of January we begin to kick things into overdrive. Change is in the air once again this year, everything from values to relationships and philosophical beliefs.
Traditional beliefs will be challenged as never before when breakthroughs in technology, politics, and biotechnology liberate the public in new ways. Big business and organized religion may object, but with Pluto slowly moving through Capricorn (governing bodies) which starting in 2008, the establishment is due for an overhaul. This is also due in part to revolutionary Uranus going direct for the first eight months of 2017. Uranus is powerfully positioned this year indicating that the world is indeed moving forward. We can look forward to progress regarding our rights, and the rights of many others. The 2017 Astrology shows that there’s simply no going back at this point. The Age of Aquarius appears to be upon us.
The numerology of 2017 is a One. When we look at the breakdown of 2017, the numbers 2 + 0 + 1 + 7 add up to ’10’ which we then further breakdown to a single digit of ‘1’. We can then look at both of these numbers 10/ 1 to understand more about the Universal energy of 2017 and how we can make the most of it. A UNIVERSAL ‘1’ Year represents the start of a fresh new cycle – a new 9 year cycle of creativity, learning and growth. A UNIVERSAL ‘1’ Year is a time to plant the seeds of intention for the forthcoming cycle – your deepest heartfelt desires, dreams and visions for every area of your life – relationships, health, finances, career, lifestyle, spirituality etc. The intentions & foundations you set in place during 2017 (preferably early in 2017 around the Solar Eclipse), mold the field of potentiality and set the tone & flow of energy within your life over the forthcoming 9 years.
The Astrology and Numerology for 2017 opens doorways to new perspectives and awareness – but perhaps its most valuable gifts are greater self-acceptance and self-appreciation. The understanding of oneself gained through horoscope can be an important step into self-love, which is the opening through where all growth, joy, and fulfillment enter. Planetary movements just like life are cyclic in nature. The yearly zodiac is a blueprint of astrological movements and their influence on your life in 2017. It also depends on the big cosmic shifts and the movements which has a general impact on the year 2017. In the horoscope for year 2017 we use transiting Jupiter, Saturn and the outer transcendental planets in which to base our yearly forecasts. Because the outer planets are slower moving, their energies and influence last longer.
Jupiter begins the year in Libra and ends the year in Scorpio, Saturn remains in Sagittarius, (until December 19, 2017), Uranus will remain in Aries during 2017, and Neptune continues its stay in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter’s transit of Libra will continue to focus our attention on relationships of all kinds. Once it moves into passionate Scorpio on October 10, 2017, our focus shifts to shared resources, sexuality, and the financial side of life. Saturn continues to make its way through philosophical Sagittarius encouraging us to really comprehend the meaning of life and work towards making it better for all. Uranus will be big news for the first eight months of 2017 as it continues to shake up the status quo, while at the same time convincing us to unshackle ourselves from current beliefs. Neptune will remain in Pisces until 2025, reminding us to embrace our compassion and spirituality. The other heavy hitter this year continues to be Pluto in Capricorn where it continues to work its magic on dismantling governments, corporations, religions, and institutions that govern society
This year’s eclipses will be highlighted in February and August. These solar/lunar hot spots are cosmic events known for shaking up the status quo and bringing hidden information to light. Eclipses act like shadows revealing what is just below the surface and bringing it to light. The first eclipse of the year will be a Lunar Eclipse in Leo on February 10, 2017. This lunation will highlight our romantic and creative nature. It will be very well aspected by other planets making it more optimistic than normal. The first Solar Eclipse will occur on February 26, 2017 in the mystical sign of Pisces. This eclipse is conjunct spiritual Neptune, inspiring our dreams as we feel like there is hope for a brighter future. Good fortune and lasting happiness come from the stars in this region of the sky. These two eclipses will be acting in unison over coming months, providing us plenty of opportunity to turn our imaginings into reality by drawing on our god given talents.
The second set of eclipses takes place in August with the first one occurring on August 7th, in the humanitarian sign of Aquarius. This Lunar Eclipse is all about detachment. What or who is it that we need to walk away from? This lunation will highlight humanity in general, bringing greater awareness to the collective as a whole. Aquarius is associated with the progression of knowledge and with the future in mind. It’s the astrological realm of science and more technological side of life, so we may even see some advanced technology revealed. The last eclipse of 2017 will be a powerful one on August 21, 2017 in the majestic sign of Leo. Leo is about the individual self-expression coming from the heart. It is a fun energy associated with creating, performing, playing, and loving. Shining in what we enjoy doing, whatever that may be is what this sign and lunation will call for.
Start something New this year and it will blossom into more than you can imagine!
