While it is a given, with Uranus in your career sector until March 2019 and Saturn in your work sector until the 20th December that you have your work and professional hats on from the get go, even they don’t require an all or nothing approach. It was the work/life balance issues that came to a head over Christmas that brought a valuable lesson, one that you need to take heed of, for despite the fairly slow and measured start to this professional year, by the end of the month you’ll be looking for the handbrake, the safety belts or both.
Uranus only turned direct in your career sector on the 29th December and with the Sun not returning until March, there should be little if no urgency. While Saturn was always taking work matters on a slow journey through the coming year, Mercury will retrograde back in from the 5th January to the 13th January, with a chance to head right back to the drawing board. However, what work/life balance issues couldn’t do, a sense of wanderlust, curiosity and adventure in the air throughout the month probably can, with the holiday spirit expanding out through the whole of January.
Things start to heat up professionally with Mars’ return to your career sector on the 28th January and with Venus returning early next month, once things start to move they will really take off. In the meantime, while there is a chance to have your money hat on from the get go, this is more about moving into this new financial year with a wish list rather than a list of financial resolutions. A relationship review will extend out to the 20th January, with the early days of the month offering a chance to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.
Cancer January 2017 Love Horoscope
The focus will always be on your relationships at this time of year, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of every year in your relationship sector. However, it was the Moon’s visit to your romantic sector over Christmas that has left you with an unshakeable sense of romantic confidence, something the Moon’s visit from the 25th January to the 27th January is likely to reinforce.
This has nothing to do with where things stand on the romantic front now and is more a sense that 2017 is destined to be a lucky year for love. While this won’t be revealed until later in the year, this is something your gut and your heart will be telling you from the get go. In the meantime, until the Sun leaves your relationship sector on the 20th January the solar spotlight will remain on your relationships, as is the case at this time every year. However, with so much water having already passed under the bridge in the final three months of 2016, you’ll begin the year with a clear sense of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you from the get go.
A New Moon at the end of December has even given you a chance to commit to your relationships and the journey ahead. Yet with Mercury in retrograde motion until the 5th January there is still some unfinished business, especially when it comes to giving your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. Mercury will retrograde back out on the 5th January, returning on the 13th January to start over from scratch, this time working to give your relationships a voice through to leaving on the 7th February, just over two months after first arriving in early November. It is then that the real journey begins.
Cancer January 2017 Money Horoscope
Moving into the year with both the Moon and Venus in your financial sector gives you the benefit of having your money hat on from the get go and will also ensure your financial instincts, desires and expectations are on the same page. This allows you to know what you want from the get go and thanks to Mars’ departure just before Christmas, there should be a high degree of financial confidence and the determination to fight for what you want. However, this is likely to give the impression that this is a financially charged year, but it’s not.
The Moon will leave your financial sector on the 2nd January and Venus on the 3rd January, leaving it empty until the Sun returns to begin your annual financial review on the 20th January. Even then, with the Sun spending just four weeks here and Mercury returning next week to tie up loose ends, this is more a case of the money gods coming along to give your financial year a push start, but not staying on. Mars, who left on the 19th December won’t return until late 2018 and Venus, who will spend less than 72 hours in your financial sector this year, won’t return until early 2018, yet both will have a huge influence on this financial year.
It is the financial confidence, passions and desires that you start the year with that will determine everything, setting the benchmark for the rest of the year to follow. The Moon will return from the 27th January to the 30th January, this time triggering a New Moon on the 28th January. This is the point where you’re finally able to commit to a financial game plan. In the meantime, the Moon’s first visit to your income sector for the year will give you a nose for money from the 13th January to the 15th January, just as your professional year is starting to take off.
Cancer January 2017 Career Horoscope
It is not so much that things got more challenging in the later part of December or even that Christmas got in the way of the closing weeks of your old professional year and more because of the protests that Jupiter mounted. Ever since Jupiter returned to your home and family sector in September an opposition with Uranus in your career sector became inevitable. This was always going to put your home and professional lives onto a collision course and bring work/life balance tensions or issues to a head. The fact that this happened over Christmas, simply made them impossible to avoid.
Those tensions are easing back, but hopefully you have learned something from this, ready to make work/life balance part of your New Year’s resolutions. This is something that won’t go away, especially if ignored, but now you know the score can be easily managed. For manage this you must, for while your 2017 professional year gets off to a strong but measured start, once Mars returns to your career sector on the 28th January and Venus early next month, the year is going to take off on you.
With Saturn in your work sector until the 20th December and Uranus not leaving your career sector until March 2019, this was always going to be a huge and busy professional year, but it’s developments that Venus and Mars will trigger that will turn the period from the 28th January to the 6th June to some of the most extraordinary ever experienced. To start with hold back, at least until after Mercury’s short double dip visit is over.
Mercury will retrograde back into your work sector on the 5th January, over a month after leaving, but leaving again on the 13th January this is a short eight day opportunity to spend time back at the drawing board. It is during this time that the Moon will make its first visit to your career sector for the year, from the 5th January to the 7th January, ensuring your professional instincts are sharp at the time. With Uranus in his first full month in direct motion in your career sector, on both the work and career fronts measure twice and cut once, at least until the 28th January.
