While the period between just before Christmas and the New Year may have been a challenging time for you, by the time you move into January any personal and/or relationship tensions will be dropping back and in their place will be a new sense of authenticity. It was during that time that a relationship turnaround took place, while major support from the communication gods also created an opportunity for a breakthrough.
Yet the most important thing that you have emerged with is a clearer sense of who you are, what you want from your relationships and how to balance the two. While there is a chance to let relationship matters settle in the early weeks of the year, Mars will return on the 28th January to spice things up with Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships returning early next month to bring her longest visit in eight years.
Balancing your personal and relationship needs won’t be the only balancing act this month, with a balance between work and play also important. Work matters get a dream start this year, but it does mean you’ll need to have your work hat on from the get go. Yet, policing that is the fact that you will also start the year with Venus in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and if anyone can police a balance between work and play, she can. January will also be an important month for tying up loose ends on the home front. While D Day for getting things out in the open and to a point where all you have to do is tie up loose ends is the 20th January, you will have until early next month to take care of all the details. After that home, family and/or property matters will remain important and will continue to run their course, though on their own steam.
Libra January 2017 Love Horoscope
You won’t need to venture far into the year to not only sense that the personal and/or relationship tensions that came to a head in the lead up to Christmas have not only eased back, but have in fact been a blessing in disguise. Ever since Jupiter returned to Libra in September, a new period of personal growth has put pressure on your relationships, something that finally came to a head over Christmas.
Yet this is when support from Saturn, in his final year in your communication sector, already came to a head. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships there is likely to be a sense that a breakthrough has been made, a corner turned or you’re simply more aware of a need for balance.
This has cleared the way for something special, something that will begin with Mars’ return to your relationship sector on the 28th January, but will escalate with Venus’ return early next month. This is the start of a major relationship comeback, turnaround or the start of something special. However, the most urgent thing you can do when moving into the New Year is holding onto and embracing your romantic desires and expectations. While you will move into the year with the Moon and Venus in your romantic sector, once Venus leaves on the 3rd January she won’t return until 2018.
This makes listening to your heart and embracing the romantic spirit in the early days of the week essential. While the Sun will return on the 20th January and Mercury early next month, they will follow in Venus’ footsteps.
Libra January 2017 Money Horoscope
January is likely to be a fairly low key month for both financial and income matters, but then that is normally the case. It was the Moon’s last visits to your two money houses in December that gave you a chance to wrap up both income and money matters in the closing weeks of 2016. At the same time, their return this month will bring a chance to do the same, this time with an eye to looking to how this applies to this financial year. It is the Moon’s visit to your income sector from the 20th January to the 22nd January that will be especially important. With Venus in your work sector from the 3rd January until early next month and Mars here until the 28th January, the Moon will give you a nose for money at a critical point of the month for job matters, with your new professional year already off to a flying start. While Venus will be wearing her professional hat, on a mission to boost your job confidence and attract work opportunities, she is a money god at heart.
Having the Moon sharpen your nose for money while Venus is on board, could also trigger income and job developments. Meanwhile, the Moon’s first visit to your financial sector for the year will bring a chance to sharpen your financial instincts and get your overall financial bearings, from the 7th January to the 9th January. With no planetary activity in either of your two money houses until Mars returns to your financial sector in early March, the Moon’s monthly visits are crucial for staying on track. This makes the period from the 7th January to the 9th January and again from the 20th January to the 22nd January, the most important for having your money hat on, your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground.
Libra January 2017 Career Horoscope
While you will need to have your work hat on from the get go, this isn’t as onerous as it sounds. Your professional year in fact gets off to a dream start, in every sense of the word including literal. This is all due to Mars’ return to your work sector just before Christmas, with his first visit in nearly two years a chance for the warrior planet of the cosmos to fire up your work passions, fighting and competitive spirit, while able to get things moving and make things happen.
Mars will not only move into January with Neptune at his side, but aligned from New Year’s Eve to the 2nd January, the planets of passion and dreams come together to give your professional year its dream start, motivated, fired up and confident from the get go. This is no false promise, with events falling into place in the early days of the month. It begins with the Moon’s return on the 2nd January, the same day that Mars and Neptune’s alignment runs its course and until leaving on the 5th January this will give you an intuitive read on the extraordinary forces in play. It is while the Moon is here that Venus will return on the 3rd January, the earliest in the year in your lifetime.
The previous record was the 4th January and while this is only a day earlier, every day ahead of the Sun Venus gets, the more likely she is to be pulled back and that’s exactly what will happen. Instead of leaving with or before Mars on the 28th January, Venus will stay on until early next month and even then will return for a double dip visit in April. A year that begins with a lot of promise on the job front is a gift that will keep on giving and keep on improving.
