Here’s a quick look at the over­all trends for every­one in 2017, fol­lowed by your in­di­vid­ual zodiac sign fore­cast.

Pilbara News - - Lifestyle - More horo­scopes next week..

SATURN

(planet of karma, re­stric­tion and dis­ci­pline) tran­sits through Sagittarius un­til De­cem­ber 20, 2017. The sec­tors most af­fected by chal­lenges, fund­ing cuts or de­clin­ing rev­enue are those in­volv­ing ed­u­ca­tion (es­pe­cially schools, col­leges and uni­ver­si­ties); pub­lish­ing (par­tic­u­larly news­pa­pers and mag­a­zines); and parts of the travel in­dus­try (like air­lines). Some con­ser­va­tive reli­gious or­gan­i­sa­tions will con­tinue to ex­pe­ri­ence con­flicts and scan­dals, and un­dergo a dif­fi­cult pe­riod of re­struc­tur­ing.

JUPITER

(planet of good luck, ex­pan­sion and pros­per­ity) moves through Libra (sign of part­ner­ships, beauty, fash­ion and jus­tice) un­til Oc­to­ber 10.

This is fab­u­lous news for busi­nesses in­volv­ing love and mar­riage, as dat­ing sites flour­ish and wed­dings be­come larger and more lav­ish. The beauty and fash­ion in­dus­tries will ben­e­fit dur­ing this pe­riod and it’s also a good sign that same-sex mar­riage will be le­galised in more coun­tries around the world.

ARIES LOVE & LUST

At­tached Aries — Fe­bru­ary is the month to pam­per your part­ner. Plan some­thing de­li­ciously dra­matic and su­per ro­man­tic. It will be tricky to get the bal­ance right be­tween in­vig­o­rat­ing in­de­pen­dence and cosy com­pan­ion­ship from March 4 un­til April 2, when Venus re­verses through your sign. Sin­gle Rams — Cu­pid is most likely to strike in Au­gust or Septem­ber, when the so­lar eclipse and Venus stim­u­late your ro­mance zone. Avoid be­ing im­pa­tient and set­tling for sec­ond-best in the mean­time.

LOOT & LUCK

En­ergy and mo­ti­va­tion are high in Fe­bru­ary, when Mars (your pa­tron planet) pow­ers through your sign. March and April look some­what stress­ful for busi­ness mat­ters, as ret­ro­grade Venus and ret­ro­grade Mer­cury cause chaos in your per­sonal and fi­nan­cial zones. Avoid ini­ti­at­ing ma­jor projects dur­ing this pe­riod. In­stead, be pa­tient and use the time to re­vise, re­view and pre­pare. May and Novem­ber are mar­vel­lous months to tap into your en­tre­pre­neur­ial side and turn an ab­stract, in­no­va­tive idea into a prac­ti­cal, pro­duc­tive ven­ture.

LIFE­STYLE

Saturn is mov­ing through your ed­u­ca­tion zone un­til De­cem­ber 20. It’s very im­por­tant that you chan­nel se­ri­ous and fo­cused en­ergy into learn­ing some­thing new in the com­ing year. The more com­plex and chal­leng­ing it is, the bet­ter. With a sup­port­ive teacher, coach or men­tor on board, you can achieve great things. If you travel in 2017 it is likely to be for work, busi­ness or study purposes, rather than just for friv­o­lous fun.

FA­MOUS ARI­ANS

Reece Wither­spoon, Keira Knight­ley, Emma Wat­son.

NEW YEAR MOTTO

“With the right kind of coach­ing and de­ter­mi­na­tion, you can ac­com­plish any­thing.” Reece Wither­spoon

TAURUS LOVE & LUST

Ex­pect the first part of 2017 to be rather slow ro­man­ti­cally. A long-term part­ner­ship may be­come a bit bor­ing and, if you’re sin­gle, suit­able dates will be dif­fi­cult to find. Be pa­tient. Jupiter jumps into your part­ner­ship zone on Oc­to­ber 10 (where it stays un­til Novem­ber 2018) and dur­ing this pe­riod you’ll ex­pe­ri­ence your luck­i­est love cy­cle for the last 12 years. It’s the per­fect time to go on a heav­enly hol­i­day with your part­ner or start a hot ro­mance with a sexy for­eigner, as love and travel are con­nected.

LOOT & LUCK

You could be thrust into the pro­fes­sional spot­light in Au­gust, when the lu­nar eclipse lights up your ca­reer zone.

Be very care­ful when bor­row­ing or lend­ing money in the com­ing year, as Saturn moves through your “money-fro­moth­ers” zone. Do your home­work thor­oughly be­fore mak­ing any im­por­tant fi­nan­cial de­ci­sions. Be ex­tra dili­gent when do­ing your tax re­turn and fill­ing out Gov­ern­ment forms. In un­cer­tain eco­nomic times, con­cen­trate on smart sav­ing and sus­tain­able liv­ing.

LIFE­STYLE

The so­lar eclipse and Nep­tune high­light your hu­man­i­tar­ian zone, so this is the year when you will turn your at­ten­tion to as­sist­ing those who are less for­tu­nate. You have so many Tau­rean tal­ents to of­fer. Be­ing ide­al­is­tic and pro­duc­tive will help you make a real dif­fer­ence. Your con­fi­dence and en­ergy lev­els will be low in March and April, so be ex­tra kind and gen­tle with your­self dur­ing this pe­riod.

FA­MOUS TAUREANS

Au­drey Hep­burn, Cate Blanchett, George Clooney.

NEW YEAR MOTTO

“As you grow older you will dis­cover that you have two hands. One for help­ing your­self, the other for help­ing oth­ers.”

Au­drey Hep­burn

GEMINI LOVE & LUST

Ex­ist­ing one-to-one part­ner­ships (whether ro­man­tic, pla­tonic or busi­ness) will have a karmic qual­ity to them over the com­ing year. At­tached Geminis — when it comes to your re­la­tion­ship you will cer­tainly reap what you sow. Sin­gles — you could meet some­one for the first time where you feel a strong at­trac­tion and ex­pe­ri­ence a dis­tinct feel­ing of deja-vu. The best months to start a ro­mance, cel­e­brate an en­gage­ment, get mar­ried or re­new your wed­ding vows are July and Novem­ber.

LOOT & LUCK

When it comes to finances it will be one step for­ward and two steps back. Pluto re­verses through your money-from-oth­ers zone from April 20 un­til Septem­ber 28, when you may ex­pe­ri­ence cash flow prob­lems or bud­get blow-outs. Sep­a­rat­ing your wants from your needs is a must dur­ing this pe­riod, as you learn to get by on less. Things im­prove af­ter Oc­to­ber 10 when Jupiter jumps through your work zone and you ex­pand your busi­ness, get a pro­mo­tion or land a bet­ter job.

LIFE­STYLE

You’ll be ex­tra rest­less in 2017, as three lu­nar eclipses stir up your Gemini gypsy gene and you’re keen to ex­plore lo­cal land­marks, travel in­ter­na­tion­ally or move, es­pe­cially in­ter­state.

The best times to take a trip are Fe­bru­ary and Au­gust.

How­ever, you may dis­cover the grass is not al­ways greener on the other side. Some Geminis will re­solve a long-stand­ing prob­lem

with a child, lover or friend that sees the re­la­tion­ship progress in a pos­i­tive new direction.

FA­MOUS GEMINIS

An­gelina Jolie, Ni­cole Kid­man, Ste­vie Nicks.

NEW YEAR MOTTO

“If you don’t get out of the box you’ve been raised in, you won’t un­der­stand how much big­ger the world is.”

An­gelina Jolie

CAN­CER LOVE & LUST

Keep pro­fes­sional projects and pas­sion­ate de­sires sep­a­rate in March, when Venus re­verses through your ca­reer zone. It’s a month when love and work are a messy mix, and a work­place ro­mance will strug­gle to sur­vive. Sin­gles — from April 20 un­til Septem­ber 28 you may have to kiss a few frogs be­fore you find your soul­mate. At­tached Crabs — Au­gust is the prime month to plan an erotic week­end es­cape with your lover, as the lu­nar eclipse kick­starts your mojo and your li­bido goes into over­drive.

LOOT & LUCK

The so­lar eclipse in Au­gust sig­nals the start of a fresh fis­cal cy­cle as you re-boot your bud­get, ne­go­ti­ate a pay deal, liq­ui­date as­sets, buy prop­erty or en­ter into a busi­ness part­ner­ship. Ex­pect on­go­ing pro­fes­sional chal­lenges and in­creased pres­sure, as Saturn con­tin­ues tran­sit­ing through your job zone. The more nim­ble and per­sis­tent you are, the bet­ter your work sit­u­a­tion will be.

LIFE­STYLE

With Jupiter in your do­mes­tic zone the best time to re­dec­o­rate, ren­o­vate, build an ex­ten­sion, sell prop­erty, buy a new home, house-sit or re­lo­cate is be­tween now and Oc­to­ber 9. With Nep­tune and a so­lar eclipse ac­ti­vat­ing your as­pi­ra­tions zone, it’s also a year when your wildest wishes re­ally can take flight. Jan­uary and May are the best months to tap into your in­ner muse, set am­bi­tious goals, dream big dreams and vi­su­alise a fab­u­lous future.

FA­MOUS CANCERIANS

Nel­son Man­dela, Meryl Streep, Princess Diana.

NEW YEAR MOTTO

“There is no pas­sion to be found play­ing small — in set­tling for a life that is less than the one you are ca­pa­ble of liv­ing.” Nel­son Man­dela

LEO LOVE & LUST

Sin­gle Lions — Jan­uary through un­til Septem­ber are the prime months to go look­ing for love, as lucky Jupiter boosts your chances of find­ing your soul­mate on a dat­ing site. How­ever, if you set­tle for a su­per­fi­cial, sec­ond-best kind of love then you’ll be sell­ing your­self short. Have the con­fi­dence and pa­tience to wait for the right per­son to come along. At­tached Cats — in Fe­bru­ary and Au­gust, pas­sion peaks and the ro­man­tic sparks fly, so plan some­thing spe­cial.

LOOT & LUCK

Dur­ing the first nine months of 2017 some so­cial me­dia savvy Lions will make a mark on­line, com­mu­ni­cat­ing a pow­er­ful mes­sage to a bur­geon­ing au­di­ence. Saturn also helps you stick with a cre­ative project and work dili­gently to bring it to a suc­cess­ful con­clu­sion. Au­gust and Septem­ber are es­pe­cially lucky months when long hours of hard work could fi­nally trans­late into sub­stan­tial fi­nan­cial re­ward. Do not lose heart and give up. Keep on keep­ing on!

LIFE­STYLE

Leos love to re­ceive plenty of at­ten­tion, ap­pre­ci­a­tion, ap­plause and ac­co­lades. In 2017, the three eclipses com­pel you to get the bal­ance right be­tween giv­ing and tak­ing. Don’t just sit back and ex­pect oth­ers to come to you, tend to your needs, and cel­e­brate your in­nate won­der­ful­ness. Jupiter en­cour­ages you to con­trib­ute your sub­stan­tial tal­ents to a wor­thy cause within your lo­cal com­mu­nity. Au­gust is the best month to give back in a big, bold and hu­man­i­tar­ian way.

FA­MOUS LEOS

Jen­nifer Lopez, Mick Jag­ger, Jen­nifer Lawrence.

NEW YEAR MOTTO

“You get what you give. What you put into things is what you get out of them.”

Jen­nifer Lopez

VIRGO LOVE & LUST

If you are sick and tired of be­ing sin­gle, Fe­bru­ary is the best month to go look­ing for love, es­pe­cially on­line. Frus­tra­tion sets in from March 4 un­til April 15, when Venus re­verses through your ro­mance and lust zones and a new re­la­tion­ship seems to stall. With plenty of pa­tience things im­prove from May on­wards. At­tached Vir­gos — Fe­bru­ary is the time to start an ex­cit­ing joint project, whereas June is a mar­vel­lous month to go on a ro­man­tic hol­i­day to­gether.

LOOT & LUCK

Lady Luck is on your side for the first nine months of 2017 as Jupiter, planet of pros­per­ity, jumps through your money zone, en­hanc­ing your busi­ness acu­men and boost­ing your abil­ity to gen­er­ate ex­tra in­come. Re­sist the urge to over­spend in March, when in­dul­gent Venus re­verses through your in­come zone. Your luck­i­est days are Au­gust 26, 27 and 28, when you could ben­e­fit from a prop­erty sale or fi­nan­cial deal.

LIFE­STYLE

Here are the dates when Mer­cury, your rul­ing planet, is ret­ro­grade in the com­ing year … Jan­uary 1-8, April 9-May 3, Au­gust 13-Septem­ber 5 and De­cem­ber 3-23. Be ex­tra care­ful with com­mu­ni­ca­tion, cor­re­spon­dence, con­tracts, com­put­ers, cars and travel dur­ing these pe­ri­ods. Plan­ning, pa­tience and due dili­gence are es­sen­tial. Many Vir­gos will be­come more so­cially re­spon­si­ble and in­volved in vol­un­teer work in 2017.

FA­MOUS VIR­GOS

Mother Teresa, Bey­once Knowles, Prince Harry.

NEW YEAR MOTTO

“Spread love ev­ery­where you go. Let no one ever come to you with­out leav­ing hap­pier.” Mother Teresa
