From the get go 2017 is likely to feel so different to 2016 that you may wonder if you slept through the year and have instead arrived at 2018. Chances are you were tired enough too, arriving at Christmas exhausted, spent and experiencing both work tension and job pressure. Yet here you are moving into the New Year, work replaced with a new spring in your step, a new sense of perspective and ready to take on the world again. No, a few days off can’t account for that, for even if you worked through this will be your reality.
What happens is that pressure on you and all the things that kept you busy finally moved over, just as the tide turned and instead of looking back at where you’ve come, you’re looking to the future. With Mars reaching your work sector on the 28th January and Venus early next month, there are some very good things ahead. However, life is going to get busier and the lessons learned last month are invaluable, especially when it comes to working smarter from the get go. With Saturn in your income sector that shouldn’t be a problem, especially if you follow the money.
Another reason that you’re likely to have a spring in your step from the get go is because the fun and playfulness has returned. Matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative have a dream start, putting you on notice from the get go that 2017 cannot and will not be a year that is all work and no play. It seems that the monkey you had on your back for much of last year has jumped off, with 2017 a lot less stressed, just as professionally and financially successful and a lot more fun.
Scorpio January 2017 Love Horoscope
2017 literally gets off to a dream start as far as matters of the heart and all things romantic are concerned. Whether you have yet to experience it yet or not, the romantic drought ended with Mars’ return to your romantic sector just before Christmas, but as you move into the New Year this will really hit home. For you will not only move into the New Year with Mars and Neptune, the planets of passion and dreams in your romantic sector, but aligned from New Year’s Eve to the 2nd January.
If that doesn’t fit the definition of a dream start, then nothing will. This is one year when this dream start is anything but an illusion, for with Venus returning on the 3rd January, spending a month rather than her normal 24 to 26 days and then returning in April for a double dip visit, the love gods have every intention on delivering on their promise. Regardless of where things stand on the romantic front on Day 1, trust that the love gods are committed from the get go and will remain committed for the first four months of 2017.
The Moon will move through your romantic sector from the 2nd January to the 5th January and again from the 30th January to the 1st February. With Venus arriving during the Moon’s first visit and still here by the time it comes full circle, it is a sign that something special is developing, for they will only meet up here once a year, if that. Compared to matters of the heart, your only chance to focus on your relationships will be during the Moon’s first visit to your relationship sector for the year, from the 7th January to the 9th January.
Scorpio January 2017 Money Horoscope
It is hard to imagine a more empowered start to your financial year than not only having Saturn in your income sector, but in his third and final year is ready now to bring things home. It was an alliance with Uranus in your work sector in the last two weeks of December that has unleashed a new sense of job and financial confidence, while triggering what could be some unexpected developments on the income and job fronts this month.
This was an alliance that began building in December 2014, but it took two whole years for them to finally come together. Continuing to work together until Saturn leaves your income sector in December, the final two weeks of December was the point where, on both the income and work fronts, everything until now has lead up to and everything from now will lead on from. You are now in the ‘from now’ phase as you move into January, with a chance to find out what this may have triggered.
There is a rare opportunity to return to the drawing board in the first two weeks of the year, with Mercury retrograding back in for a rare double dip visit from the 5th January to the 13th January. While only back for eight days, considering the water that has passed under the bridge in the later part of December, time back at the drawing board is just what you need, especially as you’ll have access to a smart head for money and 20/20 hindsight. By the time the Moon moves through your income sector from the 22nd January to the 25th January you should have a good take on money matters and a clear sense of where to from here. However, this will sharpen your nose for money just days before Mars’ game changing return to your work sector on the 28th January.
Scorpio January 2017 Career Horoscope
Chances are you reached the end of last year very aware that you couldn’t handle what was already on your plate, let alone juggle or handle anything more. Chances are, you may even have come as close to burning out over the holiday period than you’ve ever come before, feeling very wary about what this new professional year has to hold. Yet from the get go there are just seven short words that you need to burn into your brain, they are so important and never forget them. Those seven words as ‘that was then and this is now’.
For in between Christmas and New Year’s Day everything changed, from the way you look at work matters, the lessons learned in terms of working smarter, but more importantly the conditions themselves. By the time you reached the second half of December Uranus, the only planet in either of your professional houses was in his final weeks in retrograde motion and for the first time in eight decades was under pressure from Jupiter, demanding that you slowed down. So what changed so dramatically in those final days in December. Chances are you will put this down to having had a chance to take a break and recharge your batteries, but the reality is this was only a small part.
It was in the critical final days of December that any pressure peaked and if you were going to burn out it would have been over Christmas or in the days immediately following. However, that was when support from Saturn in your income sector locked into place. However, the real turning point came with Uranus’ direct turn on the 29th January. Quite literally, the final hours of 2016 were a chance to put the old professional year behind you. However, learn from those lessons, for while you will feel refreshed, revitalised and ready to take on the world again, continue to work smarter, for when Mars returns to your work sector on the 28th January everything is going to take off.
