Peter's year ahead horoscope for 2017

YEAR AHEAD 2017 by Peter Watson

If you’ve heard quite enough about Brexit, Bake-Off, Balls and Trump during the past year, it should be refreshing to look ahead and see what the stars have in store for us during 2017.

The most remarkable – and hopeful – planetary link this year is a positive connection between Saturn and Uranus. These two heavenly bodies remain in their same signs – Sagittarius and Aries respectively – until the last few days of 2017. And the reason this cosmic combination is so intriguing is that Saturn represents great care and caution while Uranus is associated with inventiveness and daring. So what they co-create provides us with an extraordinary mix of discipline and rebelliousness. This should serve us well on a global, national and personal level so that we can best embrace forward thinking while remaining rational and reasonable.

Saturn’s partnership with Uranus is at its most powerful during May and November but rest assured that it will provide a permanent backdrop to whatever we are doing for the next twelve months and beyond.

ARIES 21 Mar - 20 Apr

Love
Your expectations may be high regarding romance, although February could bring disappointment. Passions will soar in June after which you’ll be indulging your emotional side, peaking with the Solar Eclipse on 21 August. The more serious side of life may overshadow your private affairs during Autumn but in December a Jupiter-Neptune link will highlight who or what really makes your heart sing.

Wellness
Saturn dominating the psychological section of your chart urges you to focus on your mind and body. Mindfulness could help de-stress you, especially if given a wake-up call in March. Several planets emphasising self-care during Summer and Autumn should confirm the benefits of a fitness regime. With Mercury retrograde from 3 December avoid slipping back into your lazy old ways.

Personal Breakthroughs
Masses of cosmic activity in your sign encourages you to experiment in terms of relationships, your career or location. Early March could pose set-backs. But during May a Uranus-Saturn link will set you on an optimistic new path. You’ll rise to challenges in late September. And Saturn’s change of signs in December will make a professional or personal partnership truly concrete.


TAURUS 21 Apr - 21 May

Love
Though in early 2017 you’ll strengthen existing bonds your deepest feelings will be amplified by the Full Moon in March. In early Summer you can consolidate the major qualities of your closest link. Loving words could prove misleading with Mercury retrograde from mid-August for three weeks. Anticipate new beginnings from early Autumn, after which you’ll be investing in a very special relationship.

Wellness
You’ll find delays debilitating as the year begins. So challenge anybody’s unreasonable behaviour. A Pluto-Jupiter clash in March will encourage you to combat stress, perhaps with the help of deep massage. However, over-indulgence could threaten your well-being so curb excess, especially in August. In September, when Uranus opposes Jupiter, shrug off old fears and, as Winter approaches, acknowledge the power of love.

Personal Breakthroughs
Aim high in terms of private and professional aspirations around 19 January. Joint financial or property deals might proceed slowly but your own cash-flow situation will flourish from April. Job-wise expect exciting developments under the Lunar Eclipse in August. Early Autumn will find you concentrating on solid work leading to profitable links being forged from 11 November when Saturn befriends Uranus.


GEMINI 22 May -21 Jun

Love
Fun and laughter will appeal from the start of the year. But focus seriously on relationships once Jupiter clashes with Uranus then Pluto in March. June’s Full Moon will help you decide where your heart lies so that, in Summer, you’re resistant to someone’s bad behaviour. Adopt a lighter touch throughout Autumn. In November intriguing disclosures will arise out of the blue.

Wellness
The Sun in Aquarius from 19 January will encourage broader horizons, bolstering physical and emotional health. In March seek out people and situations such as a choir or book-club that benefit you. And in May confront any make-it or break-it issues head-on. Two Eclipses in August will encourage meaningful conversations. By Autumn increased self-care will leave you feeling more self-assured than ever.

Personal Breakthroughs
A professional or private partnership might seem problematic early in 2017. But this could be your year of high achievements provided you overpower any hot-headed individuals. By the time Pluto challenges Jupiter in March you’ll gain the upper hand. Permanently. Summer will find you drilling down into your creative talents. Seek out group activities from November once Saturn’s allied itself to Uranus.


CANCER 22 Jun - 23 Jul

Love
Confused feelings will become clearer in mid-January. But carefully analyse your closest relationship in March when Pluto confronts Jupiter. The May sunshine will bring lightness and brightness to your personal life but shrug off old grievances recurring in August. Autumn will introduce a phase during which you’re admired from afar. Something formalised in December will bode well for the future.

Wellness
Capitalise on sober Saturn occupying the well-being section of your chart until late 2017. The Solar Eclipse in February highlights diet and exercise regimes for empowerment. And you should enjoy self-reflection during early Summer with the Sun in Gemini, sign of thoughts and self-analysis. In November recognise your weaknesses as well as your strengths and seek counsel from someone who cares.

Personal Breakthroughs
Several fast-moving planets and the Sun go charging across a potent section of your chart as Winter becomes Spring. Your popularity rating will soar during May. However, much of Summer will centre around family or partnership issues. Eventually you’ll provide solutions. You’ll triumph in September when a Jupiter-Uranus set-to creates professional or domestic upheaval. December’s discoveries will provide a kick-start within unfamiliar territory.


LEO 24 Jul - 23 Aug

Love
Let the New Moon in January remind you that yours is a fixed sign and certainty in relationships is vital. Spring brings excitement and at mid-Summer you can negotiate more wriggle-room in a partnership you’ve sometimes found restricting. Flattering words will warm the coldest nights and intimate feelings can be shared when Saturn changes signs as the year draws to an end.

Wellness
Misgivings about your mind and body will fade early in 2017 once Mercury’s no longer retrograde. You can then approach life more vigorously. Expert opinion about health should be respected in March and, during Summer, running regularly will help your cardiovascular system. Avoid stress in September. A Saturn-Uranus link in November will encourage a hefty investment in your physical and emotional health.

Personal Breakthroughs
Shared responsibilities may seem daunting but only until late February. Tap into hidden talents while making use of wise counsel during June and July. Unexpected developments will arise with August’s Eclipse. During Autumn you’ll feel more relaxed in territory you’ve previously found exhausting. December will find you consolidating all you’ve learned about family life as Jupiter allies itself to Neptune.


VIRGO 24 Aug - 23 Sep

Love
Early in 2017 one particular relationship will dominate. And the Solar Eclipse in February will equip you to evaluate its strengths and weaknesses. Refuse to over-react to minor tussles especially around 30 March when Jupiter tackles Pluto. Surprising disclosures may impact your deepest feelings in, say, June and September – but it will be fine. During Winter a major re-think will help enormously.

Wellness
Health-wise you’d benefit from more fun. In Spring when Mercury enters Taurus a trip could enhance your well-being. And during Summer capitalise on a loving family and home life. A treatment, discipline or way of life that some think cranky will enliven August. New beginnings will appeal throughout Autumn. And in December Venus will prove that love and laughter are priceless tonics.

Personal Breakthroughs
Discovering that others impede rather help your progress should liberate you while Mars is in Aries between January and mid-March. During Spring tackle those costing you money. Fending for yourself will become empowering in August. However, the benefits of being part of a team will be accentuated by October’s Full Moon. In November indulge loved ones. But avoid misunderstandings in December.


LIBRA 24 Sep - 23 Oct

Love
Aggressive Mars changing signs in January will disrupt aspects of a partnership. Be glad you can thrash things out, even during confusing April, and construct something positive in May. You can enjoy moments of light relief initiated by the Lunar Eclipse in August, continuing throughout much of Autumn. Your heart will miss a beat in mid-December leaving you feeling lucky and much-loved.

Wellness
2017 has more to offer than you might think. The Eclipse in February will highlight ways of shaping up or slimming down. With excessive Jupiter in your sign until October avoid comfort-eating or over-indulging, especially when provoked by Uranus early in March and Pluto at the end of the month. In August and September greater self-care will be crucial. December brings rewards.

Personal Breakthroughs
Home or family issues cropping up in January needn’t persist. By March you’ll be free of futile disputes. Also challenge someone’s disloyalty when Mercury changes direction in April. Silence can be empowering during Summer if others become antagonistic. The Sun entering Scorpio in October will help you capitalise on personal resources. By late in the year make sure you’re free to roam.


SCORPIO 24 Oct - 22 Nov

Love
One of your New Year’s resolutions might be to handle relationships with a light touch. Remain calm during melodramas in February. And in Spring acknowledge the depth of your feelings. Retrograde Mercury mustn’t disrupt a love match during April. From June onwards a calmer phase can be enjoyed despite somebody’s scepticism during Autumn. A Jupiter-Neptune link will brighten up December for you.

Wellness
Meditation, retreats or therapies once considered alternative will appeal. Confident Jupiter will urge you to delve deep into your unconscious and ask questions. True, when Mercury retrogrades during Spring your scepticism could create controversy but don’t back down. If in August and again in September others destabilise you give them short shrift. By December your sixth sense will become your guiding light.

Personal Breakthroughs
As Saturn tussles with Venus and Mars in January your self-respect should soar. Negativity cannot be tolerated. And you’ll flourish once you disregard your inner critic. In March and again in mid-Summer speak out against those impeding your progress. A transformative episode in September will consolidate all you’ve learned about yourself. Nurture hidden creative talents in late 2017 as Jupiter befriends Neptune.


SAGITTARIUS 23 Nov - 21 Dec

Love
Cosmic activity from January to Springtime will give your love life a shake-up with a Jupiter-Uranus clash in March raising questions about a complex relationship. Provided you know your own mind you’ll be on safe ground by mid-May. Further challenges occur in September when Jupiter again confronts Uranus. But don’t fight. In December enjoy hearing others say you’re right and they’re wrong.

Wellness
Embrace the unfamiliar. By late Spring a Saturn-Uranus link will introduce people and situations offering a new landscape of emotional and physical well-being. Indisputable progress you’ve made will be widely acknowledged by the time of August’s Solar Eclipse. The Headspace app could prove invaluable, as could a more varied diet. By late 2017 you’ll be celebrating a healthier mind, body and spirit.

Personal Breakthroughs
For most of 2017 Saturn in your sign will encourage greater productivity. You’ll also develop cautious optimism as you do things differently. During Spring, approach financial or professional opportunities pragmatically. And in Summer when retrograde Mercury threatens to reveal you as impetuous you must defend yourself. Events in October will encourage you to become a pioneering spirit before the year is out.


CAPRICORN 22 Dec - 20 Jan

Love
January’s Full Moon should raise your hopes regarding cracks within a loving relationship. Seek new levels of understanding. And by Springtime Mercury and the Sun will prove you’re on track. During Summer analyse whatever’s missing from your life. New insights gained in November should make you proud of the way you’ve met challenges in your private affairs and come out smiling.

Wellness
Rather than ruminate on the past, focus on the future. 2017 will introduce unique ways of reshaping your life and under the Full Moon in March others will contribute. Why struggle alone? Mars entering the self-preservation sector of your chart in April means your well-being will dominate the Summer. For the rest of the year invest in relaxation techniques and abdominal breathing.

Personal Breakthroughs
With Jupiter at a crucial point of your chart for much of the year explore hidden strengths. If in March your brave ideas meet resistance, get critics on side. And as Spring bursts forth you’ll crash through barriers. Make sure you’re match-fit to capitalise on something created, financially or professionally, by two Eclipses in August. December’s news takes you to dizzy heights.


AQUARIUS 21 Jan - 19 Feb

Love
If undecided about romance as the year unfolds, go with your sixth sense. By Spring you’ll know what you want from your closest relationship. Ignore mixed messages arriving by way of retrograde Mercury during Summertime. But by September you’ll realise exactly what love should have to offer. In December one phase in your life will end as another more exciting one begins.

Wellness
Welcome the Sun into your sign on 19 January and strive to be more balanced and confident. During Spring, perhaps with Pilates or yoga, pamper your mind and body. Challenges in August will illustrate progress made regarding your philosophical, psychological and physical well-being. In November let Saturn and Uranus lead you towards like-minded people with whom you’ll achieve greater peace of mind.

Personal Breakthroughs
Venus in Pisces during January will generate money-making schemes. And February’s Eclipse means you’ll be respected for all you’ve accumulated. However, family needs are crucial. In April something misconstrued could jolt you out of complacency. Summer brings creative or romantic pursuits but avoid partnership disputes. In Autumn choose your battles carefully. Sharpen up your image and by December dreams should come true.


PISCES 20 Feb - 20 Mar

Love
New insights into your personal life will emerge with February’s Solar Eclipse. Changes must be carefully considered because in March you’ll be defending decisions you’ve made. Summer promises love and laughter and with the Sun in Virgo from 22 August you’ll feel in control of your most powerful emotions. What is established, love-wise, during Autumn provides certainty for the rest of 2017.

Wellness
Start the year admitting that you’ve been hiding your true self. By Spring you’ll be sharing innermost secrets with somebody you trust. Your physical and emotional health depend on your willingness to make significant changes to who you are. Jupiter entering Scorpio in October will justify having left your comfort zone to enter unfamiliar territory. By December Neptune will provide glittering prizes.

Personal Breakthroughs
Demonstrate your business acumen early in 2017 to boost finances. Venus will enhance your home life from July. Unexpected challenges in August will prove how unafraid you can be but exercise caution in September. Travel and exciting deals could brighten up winter provided others are trustworthy. Neptune reminds you that if things seem too good to be true, they probably are.
