On paper 2017 is a continuation of 2016, in that the same areas of your chart that were active last month are still active and in most cases the same planets are in the same place, yet everything is likely to feel different. The final two weeks of 2016 was a cacophony of cosmic voices all trying to be heard at the same time and just a general sense of pressure that was compounded by the time of year. The fog of war has already started to clear by the time you move into January, with a new sense of excitement in the air from the get go. Mars only left Aquarius a few days before Christmas and with Venus still here, you will have a clear sense of what you want and what excites you from the get go.
This is tapping into a sense of adventure that has been in effect for several months now, but finally seems to have broken through your excuses over the holiday period. Lucky Jupiter returned to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery in September but it is only now, as you move into the New Year that you can sense that this is going to be an exciting and adventurous year.
That’s not the only thing you’ll sense, with clues from the get go that this is likely to be a lucrative year or at least that’s the case if the early weeks are anything to go by. You’ll start the year with Mars in your income sector, where he’s been taking a sledgehammer to any glass ceilings since just before Christmas. Venus’ return on the 3rd January will capitalise on this, kicking off what could be not just the most lucrative weeks of 2017, but the most lucrative months. There is also a hint of romance in the air from the get go or at least the determination to take matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative more seriously.
Aquarius January 2017 Love Horoscope
While you will move into the year with Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships in Aquarius, she will leave on the 3rd January and then won’t return until 2018. While spending less than 72 hours of 2017 in Aquarius might sound like a raw deal, she has been here since early December, spending the final weeks of 2016 fuelling your romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year. However, this makes it important to listen to and trust your heart from the get go.
By the time the Moon makes its first visits to your romantic and relationship sectors for the year Venus will be gone, but like a bell that can’t be unrung, her romantic and relationship desires and expectations for the coming year will have been banked, pointing both in the right direction from the get go. Because Venus was in Aquarius during the Moon’s last visits to your romantic and relationship sectors for 2016, when they come full circle they will return with a reminder of those desires and expectations, making these the most important days of the month for romantic and relationship matters.
The Moon will move through your romantic sector from the 9th January to the 11th January and coming full circle from last month’s Full Moon, it will be impossible to ignore these romantically charged lunar vibes. Often what is triggered on a Full Moon doesn’t come to fruition until the Moon comes full circle and with Venus leaving Aquarius just six days earlier, this could trigger some unexpected romantic developments. The Moon will make its first visit to your relationship sector for the year from the 13th January to the 15th January, bringing a reminder of what you want from your relationships expectations you moved into the year with.
Aquarius January 2017 Money Horoscope
It is literally hard to imagine a better start to your financial year or one that is more deserved, after the financial challenges and tensions of the last two years. Pushed to the sidelines by more dominant financial forces, income matters are finally getting their turn and it starts with a dream start and this is no exaggeration. You will not only move into the New Year with Mars and Neptune in your income sector, but with the planets of passion and dreams aligned and if that doesn’t fit the definition of a dream start, I don’t know what does.
However, a dream start is one thing, but a sustained start is something else and you have both. Not due to leave your income sector until the 28th January, Mars would have been happy spending the first four weeks of 2017 smashing through glass ceilings, no matter how long it took to capitalise on whatever lies on the other side. However, you won’t have to wait long, with Venus’ return on the 3rd January kicking off what are destined to be some of the most lucrative weeks of 2017.
With the Moon here from the 2nd January to the 5th January, this will ensure your nose for money is sharp as Venus returns, for what should be their only encounter. The Moon takes 28 days to come full circle and as Venus moves through in 24 to 26 days, they will meet up here once a year at most. Yet as the Moon returns from the 30th January to the 1st February Venus is still here, a sure sign that something is up. With so much set to unfold on the income front until the end of April, a dream start to your financial year is anything but a false start. Ahead lie not only the four most lucrative months of 2017, but a hint of things to come.
Aquarius January 2017 Career Horoscope
Apart from the Moon spending Christmas in your career sector, you have a surprisingly quiet start to your professional year. While 2015 began with no planets in your career sector, Mars’ return just days into 2015 meant that this was a false sense of calm and more a chance to catch your breath. A year on, this time this really is the case, though by this time next year you’ll be moving into the New Year with lucky Jupiter on board. If the professional gods offer a quiet start to the year take it, for this really is a chance to catch your breath.
There isn’t usually any planetary activity in either of your professional houses at this time of year and if there is, it is more a case of events from the previous year still playing out. This year you’ve been able to complete all that, with the focus this month more on the money, with some exceptional income developments this month. This also makes the Moon’s visits to your two professional houses more important, as the only chance to get an intuitive read on work and career matters and for the professional gods to get any messages through.
The Moon will visit your work sector first and it’s a visit from the 11th January to the 13th January that will trigger this year’s Full Moon, on the 13th January. This will be the push to get this new professional year off the ground and to get job matters moving. While a Full Moon can trigger unexpected developments, this can take until the Moon returns four months later to fully play out. Meanwhile, the Moon’s first visit to your career sector for the year will sharpen your professional instincts and provide a more global professional perspective, from the 20th January to the 22nd January.
