Find out what the stars have in store for you in 2017, so you can plan your friend­ships, love-life and ca­reer

This is the year to re­view your ma­jor re­la­tion­ships. Make sure you choose your com­pany wisely be­cause a false friend, du­bi­ous date or un­re­li­able lover will just lead you up the prim­rose path to trou­ble and strife. At­tached Li­brans — ex­pect re­la­tion­ship rum­bles in March, when Venus (your power planet) re­verses through your part­ner­ship zone. Calm co-op­er­a­tion is the key to on­go­ing do­mes­tic har­mony. Sin­gles — if you rush things in March, then a promis­ing ro­mance could run off the rails.


You can look for­ward to a for­tu­itous year, per­son­ally and fi­nan­cially, as Jupiter tran­sits through your sign and then shifts into your money zone on Oc­to­ber 10. How­ever, if you frit­ter money away on friv­o­lous self-in­dul­gences, then you’ll waste a golden op­por­tu­nity to get ahead. Saturn af­fects Uranus in May and Novem­ber when you’ll ben­e­fit from joint ven­tures in­volv­ing so­cial me­dia, the in­ter­net, travel, ed­u­ca­tion or new tech­nol­ogy. You’ll find the more en­tre­pre­neur­ial you are, the more your busi­ness will pros­per and grow.


Fe­bru­ary and Au­gust are fab­u­lous months to give birth to a new work goal or per­sonal dream. The more am­bi­tious your as­pi­ra­tions are, the bet­ter the out­comes will be.

Aim for the stars. With Jupiter

mov­ing through your sign (un­til Oc­to­ber 10) don’t worry about what other peo­ple think of you, your ap­pear­ance or how you live your life. Have the in­ner and outer con­fi­dence to be the real you.

The year prom­ises to be a ro­man­tic one for sin­gles, as Nep­tune and a so­lar eclipse stim­u­late your love zone. Fe­bru­ary is the prime month for ro­man­tic fire­works, can­dlelit din­ners and erotic es­capes, as you road-test a po­ten­tial part­ner. At­tached Scor­pios — May is the sex­i­est month of the year.

How­ever, ex­pect some con­flict be­tween your part­ner­ship and your pro­fes­sional re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in Au­gust when the lu­nar eclipse dis­turbs do­mes­tic har­mony.

Some deft diplomacy (and some skil­ful jug­gling) will help set­tle things down.


If you fol­low your fi­nan­cial in­stincts it will lead to good for­tune in 2017. The Saturn/Uranus trines in May and Novem­ber bode well for mak­ing a ma­jor busi­ness move as you turn an in­no­va­tive idea into an ex­cit­ing en­tre­pre­neur­ial en­deav­our. But re­sist the temp­ta­tion to take un­scrupu­lous short-cuts or over-ex­tend your­self in late March and early Au­gust.

Make sure you get all ma­jor money mat­ters com­pleted be­fore De­cem­ber, when Mer­cury re­verses through your cash zone.


Are you pre­oc­cu­pied with outer ap­pear­ances? It’s time to throw su­per­fi­cial­i­ties out the win­dow and in­stead look a lot deeper. With Saturn tran­sit­ing through your self-es­teem zone, 2017 is the year to learn to love and cel­e­brate your­self just the way you are — flaws and all. Ac­tiv­i­ties like med­i­ta­tion, con­tem­pla­tion, yoga and jour­nal work are favoured from Jan­uary 1 un­til Oc­to­ber 9, when Jupiter jour­neys through your spir­i­tual zone and you tap into the wealth of wis­dom within.

At­tached Archers — in or­der for your union to sur­vive in the long-term, you need to ex­pe­ri­ence a sense of ad­ven­ture within the pa­ram­e­ters of a com­mit­ted re­la­tion­ship. One way to do this is to com­bine travel and to­geth­er­ness, as you go on an ex­otic es­capade with your part­ner (Fe­bru­ary and Au­gust are the best months to travel). Sin­gles — with Venus re­vers­ing through your ro­mance zone, March will be a messy month for love. Have a rest be­fore you jump back into the dat­ing pool again in April.


Uranus pushes your im­pul­sive but­ton in March and Septem­ber.

If you are too hasty, hot-headed or ex­trav­a­gant, you could find your­self slap-bang in the mid­dle of a fi­nan­cial fi­asco.

Pace your­self. If a busi­ness pro­posal looks too good to be true then walk away — quickly. Also if a col­league or ac­quain­tance makes a busi­ness of­fer (or sug­ges­tion) in Au­gust, then re­search it metic­u­lously and get a sec­ond opin­ion be­fore you make a fi­nal de­ci­sion.


Your rest­less wan­der­lust na­ture in­ten­si­fies in March, Au­gust and Septem­ber, when Jupiter (your power planet) links up with Uranus and Pluto, and your en­ergy and tim­ing are all over the place.

Taskmas­ter Saturn is still tran­sit­ing through your sign un­til De­cem­ber 20, so strive to be rea­son­able and re­spon­si­ble, rather than im­petu­ous and im­pos­si­ble. While Saturn will send many chal­lenges your way, it will also teach you to cel­e­brate your strengths and learn from your mis­takes.

June is a su­per ro­man­tic month for sin­gles, when there’ll be a plethora of po­ten­tial suitors and for some lucky Capri­corns it’s when Cu­pid fi­nally comes call­ing. If you are at­tached, ex­pect some emo­tional or in­ti­macy is­sues to crop up in Fe­bru­ary, when the lu­nar eclipse lights up your lust zone. Are you ex­pe­ri­enc­ing on­go­ing prob­lems with your part­ner? Au­gust is the prime month to be pos­i­tive and proac­tive, as you lead the way and set new ground rules in the re­la­tion­ship.


Work and luck are in­deli­bly linked in 2017. May, Au­gust and Novem­ber are par­tic­u­larly for­tu­nate months to look for a job, hit your boss up for a raise, ap­ply for a loan or start a busi­ness. Start pre­par­ing and strate­gis­ing ASAP. From Oc­to­ber 10 on­wards, look for promis­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties open­ing up in ar­eas in­volv­ing the in­ter­net, on­line sales, so­cial net­work­ing, new tech­nol­ogy and telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions.

You need to keep up-to-date with the lat­est in­no­va­tions in fi­nance and busi­ness.


This is the year when you can daz­zle the doubters and make a strong im­pres­sion in the pub­lic sphere. How­ever, there’s a fine line be­tween blow­ing oth­ers away (with your dis­ci­pline and ded­i­ca­tion) and turn­ing them away (with your cal­cu­lat­ing ap­proach). Aim to com­bine pro­fes­sional suc­cess with the per­sonal touch. It’s also a won­der­ful year to work on your in­ner devel­op­ment and get to know your­self bet­ter as Saturn tran­sits through your soli­tude and spir­i­tual zone.

With two pow­er­ful eclipses rock­ing your love boat in Fe­bru­ary and Au­gust, your ro­man­tic life is set for some dra­matic changes in 2017. At­tached Aquar­i­ans — do all you can to re­boot a stale re­la­tion­ship or fix a frus­trat­ing prob­lem. If you al­low bore­dom and com­pla­cency to set in, then one of you will soon be head­ing out the door. Sin­gles — ex­pect a pas­sion­ate at­trac­tion in Fe­bru­ary or March, but it could take un­til Au­gust for things to re­ally get go­ing. If it’s true love, it will be worth the wait.


From Jan­uary through un­til Septem­ber, there’s money to be made via pub­lish­ing, ed­u­ca­tion, travel, busi­ness trips, in­ter­na­tional con­tacts, im­ports or ex­ports. Late Fe­bru­ary is the best time to re­vise your bud­get, boost your per­sonal sav­ings or up­date your share port­foli. In May or Novem­ber, a cher­ished dream could fi­nally come true … as long as you have put in the hard work re­quired.


The Jupiter-Uranus op­po­si­tion in March and Septem­ber will in­crease your rest­less (and reck­less) side, and could cause prob­lems in­volv­ing travel, com­mu­ni­ca­tion or so­cial me­dia. Slow down and pace your­self dur­ing these months. With Saturn stim­u­lat­ing your peer group zone, is it time to fi­nally give a fair-weather friend the flick? In 2017, make it a ma­jor pri­or­ity to fill your so­cial cir­cle with pos­i­tive peo­ple who en­cour­age your tal­ents and sup­port your dreams.


Oprah Win­frey, Bob Mar­ley, Yoko Ono.


“Sur­round your­self with only the peo­ple who are go­ing to lift you higher.”


At­tached Pieceans — love and lust are on the menu from Jan­uary 1 un­til Oc­to­ber 9, when, courtesy of Jupiter, your sex drive reg­u­larly soars. Then, the pe­riod be­tween Oc­to­ber 10 and De­cem­ber 31 is the per­fect time to travel with your part­ner, hope­fully to a heav­enly for­eign des­ti­na­tion. Sin­gles — don’t sit around wait­ing for Cu­pid’s ar­row to strike. June and July are fab­u­lous months to flirt up a storm when proac­tive Mars moves through your ro­mance zone.


Be very care­ful about money mat­ters in March, Au­gust and Septem­ber. When it comes to mak­ing a ma­jor fi­nan­cial de­ci­sion, have the courage to lis­ten to your in­ner voice. It will point you in the right di­rec­tion.

The luck­i­est month of the year is De­cem­ber, when pros­per­ity planet Jupiter, ac­ti­vates your per­sonal and in­ter­na­tional zones.

Make sure you are ready, will­ing and able to cap­i­talise on good luck when it comes along.


The so­lar eclipse in Fe­bru­ary helps you re­boot your ap­pear­ance or head off in a new di­rec­tion as you ap­proach life with ex­tra pas­sion. Don’t be dis­mayed if you make a pro­fes­sional blun­der be­tween April and Au­gust when Saturn re­verses through your ca­reer zone. If you learn from your mis­takes, then you’ll trans­form a short-term fail­ure into a long-term suc­cess. Try to do some­thing daz­zling in Novem­ber.
