While there are many different factions vying for your attention from the get go, making it clear that 2017 is destined to be a vibrant year, the two most dominant in the early hours will be a sense of adventure and a dream start to your professional year. While the two might not seem to go together, rather than being in opposition with each other they are running in parallel lines, allowing you to jump from the other when you can.
Yet to start with, despite the fact that you’ll begin the month and the year with Mars and Neptune aligned in your career sector, starting the month with the Moon and Venus aligned in an adventurous part of your chart comes with more urgency. With the Moon leaving on the 2nd January and Venus a day later, not to return until 2018, that sense of adventure you start the month with needs to be embraced.
While the Sun will return to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on the 20th January, it won’t be the same. What makes this even more urgent is the fact that Venus will join Mars in your career sector, where she will spend the rest of the month. That dream start to your professional year is only going to get better. Meanwhile, while the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of every year in your financial sector and there is a need to have your money hat on from the get go, even the money gods are giving you the whole of January and into early February to work on your financial game plan. In the early days of the month there is even a need to hold back, choosing to measure twice and cut once when dealing with any money matters.
Gemini January 2017 Love Horoscope
While Jupiter has been in your romantic sector since September, there is something about starting the year with the planet of luck on board that changes everything. This is even likely to put the wakeup calls delivered during the final 10 days of 2016 into perspective, appreciating that you needed those wakeup calls as you move into what is destined to be your luckiest year for love in over a decade. With Saturn in his third and final year in your relationship sector, this is also destined to be a major and defining relationship year, with a sense of awe and reverence on both fronts.
With plenty of lessons to be learned from the past, the early weeks of 2017 are more about reflecting back, while prepared to commit to a new phase in the journey. The Moon’s first visit to your romantic sector for the year will be a chance to connect with Jupiter and on the other side of what may have been a tough transition from one year to the next, regroup. Whatever the wakeup calls in the final weeks of 2016, the Moon’s return to your romantic sector from the 18th January to the 20th January will bring a chance to commit to new resolutions, just weeks before the doors open to the past and second chances on the 6th February.
While you moved into the New Year with a clear sense of relationship conviction, Mercury will retrograde back in for a double dip visit from the 5th January to the 13th January, with a rare opportunity for a do over. In retrograde motion until the 8th January, this will bring a chance to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice. By the time the Moon returns to make its first visit to your relationship sector for the year, from the 22nd January to the 25th January, you should have a clear sense of what you’re committing to.
Gemini January 2017 Money Horoscope
The spotlight is always going to be on your financial situation and money matters at this time of year, always has and always will, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of January in your financial sector. With Venus and Mars having both moved through in the later part of 2016, much of the motivation and momentum for this financial year has already been created and the early weeks of 2017 are more about tying up loose ends. However, this is something that can’t be rushed and moving into the year with Mercury in retrograde motion, you may even find that the brakes have been put on money matters.
That will change when Mercury retrogrades back out on the 5th January, returning just eight days later to start over again. When Mercury returns on the 13th January he will no longer be in retrograde motion and having already spent over a month here, he’ll return with a smart head for money, 20/20 hindsight and an opportunity for a do over. With the Sun leaving on the 20th January but Mercury staying on until the 7th February, this will give you time after your annual financial review is over and to finalise your financial game plan for 2017.
Taking care of the details and tying up loose ends can happen in the final 10 days of January and the first week of February, not only allowing you to keep your mind and your options open until then, but asking you to. Mercury will return on the same day as a Full Moon in your income sector on the 13th January, with a smart head for money and 20/20 hindsight kicking in just as this brings financial tensions to a head, but also brings both income and money matters to a head, turning and/or tipping point.
Gemini January 2017 Career Horoscope
Your professional year literally gets off to a dream start, in every sense of the word, but the best news is that it gets even better after that. The planets responsible for this dream start are Mars and Neptune, who not only start the year together in your career sector, but aligned from New Year’s Eve to the 2nd January. As the planets of passion and dreams, this will see your professional passions and dreams aligned from the get go, giving you a bullish sense of confidence and a belief that anything is possible.
With career forces having been suppressed over the last two years, this is the start of a major comeback. With Mars not leaving your career sector until the 28th January, the first four weeks of 2017 are set to be the most impassioned, with a chance to throw yourself into the things that excite you. However, things get even better with Venus’ return on the 3rd January, the earliest in the year she has returned in our lifetime, with the previous record being the 4th January. However, considering what Neptune and Mars are fuelling, it is no wonder she is in such a hurry to get here. Arriving this far ahead of the Sun has consequences for Venus and for you, fortunately the good kind. Instead of rushing through in just 24 to 26 days, Venus will spend a month here and even then, will return in April for another four weeks.
The Moon will move through your career sector from the 2nd January to the 5th January and with Venus arriving on the 3rd January, the skies will be full of professional gods at that time. By the time the Moon comes full circle, returning from the 30th January to the 1st February, Mars will be gone and Venus will be in her final days, giving you a chance to process what is likely to be a remarkable start to this professional year.
