Aries (3/21 - 4/20)
January 1st is celebrated as New Year’s Day in many parts of the world. This date is often associated with new beginnings, but this year, Mercury will be in retrograde as January begins. It is advisable to postpone any New Year’s resolutions until after January’s New Moon on the 27th. January 28th is the Chinese New Year and will be an excellent day to get started on your new goals for 2017!
As January begins, Mercury will be retrograde in Sagittarius. Although it will go direct on the 8th, we’ll be in the shadow phase of this phenomenon until January 25th. While Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius, it will be good timing to finish up school-related work, research travel or educational opportunities, and re-evaluate some of your beliefs. On January 12th, Mercury will move into Capricorn, giving you an opportunity to review career-related matters.
Venus will enter Pisces on the 2nd and remain there all month. This can help to balance some of the high-voltage energy resulting from this month’s astrology. Venus in Pisces will help you to reconnect with your spiritual center and remember the activities that bring you inner peace. Music, dance, or visual arts may feel especially soothing.
The Sun will be in Capricorn and your 10th house of career and public image through the 18th. During these days, the timing will be good to complete work-related projects and you may gain recognition for your leadership skills. On the 19th, the Sun will move into Aquarius, highlighting your social life. Make time for friends and community-minded activities.
The Cancer Full Moon on the 12th will illuminate your 4th house of home and family. You may gain clarity on a relationship with a family member, your living situation, or what you need to feel secure. Mercury moves into Capricorn on this day, which will add a grounding influence. Even so, when the Moon is full in the emotionally sensitive sign of Cancer, it will be wise to take a step back before reacting to situations that feel intense. It’s likely that you’ll have a more balanced perspective a few days after the Full Moon has passed.
A favorable trine between Saturn and Uranus will help to motivate you towards your long-term goals. After the 25th, when we’re clear of the Mercury retrograde shadow, you’ll be well positioned to take a big leap forward personally and/or professionally. If you were born April 8th – 12th, of any year, you’re scheduled for the biggest transformation. It’s likely that unexpected circumstances can offer you the push you need to commit to your dreams. There will be a huge focus on your personal growth and learning some of life’s greater lessons.
The New Moon in Aquarius on January 27th will be an ideal day to write down your New Year’s resolutions. The Aquarian energy will support your goals related to freedom, creativity, friendship, and innovation. In addition, Mars, your ruling planet, will enter your Sun Sign on this day! You’ll feel ready to take on the world, but pace yourself. Think about your long-term goals and what you can accomplish at a sustainable pace.
