This is a year on fire, pouring energy into your work, career, and creativity sectors. The January Sun-Pluto conjunction keeps your ambition and work ethic sky high. The separating Mars-Neptune conjunction makes sure that emotions, lofty spiritual ideals, and instincts are not left behind.
The Sun is conjoined with fiery Mars as it enters Leo. Here's your primary energy source for the whole year. Resist burning out or getting too forceful or impatient. Relax, and go for the gold. There's no limit to what you can achieve.
The Moon will be not quite New as the Sun enters Leo. This deep, quiet, dark Moon provides unlimited access to wise private insights. With this strong Moon in Cancer, home and domestic concerns will be important and should be well attended to.
A Lunar Eclipse on February 10 has the Moon in Leo. A Lunar Eclipse on August 7 has the Sun in Leo, followed by a Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21. The Lunar Eclipse periods will stress intimate relationships and may create self-doubts. The Solar Eclipse may have more influence in public or social arenas. Be smart and sensitive before and during these periods.
Of the four Mercury retrogrades this year, the third one from mid-August until early September will start in Virgo but conclude in Leo. Look forward to emerging from the retrograde with many minor snags untangled and more energy to charge ahead.
With Jupiter in lovable and loving Libra most of the year, relationships are especially favored in 2017. Generosity and big-hearted feelings will keep you together and at times may smooth over disagreements or differing points of view.
The planet of love, Venus, is in curious, chatty Gemini when the Sun moves into Leo. You should be able to talk about anything and have substantial, decisive discussions during this time.
Venus is retrograde in Aries, then Pisces, from early March until mid-April. Your love life may be richer, calmer, and quieter then.
When in Ocotober Jupiter shifts into the serious, sexy sign of Scorpio, partners may draw even more closely together. Honesty, integrity, and mutual devotion will be essential. Physical intimacy may intensify, too.
Love is magical throughout 2017, starting with the conjunction of passionate Mars and dreamy Neptune in the intuitive, emotional sign of Pisces.
When the Sun enters Leo, Mercury and the Lunar North Node are together in Leo. Talk, listen, and you will make some romantic and karmic connections.
Jupiter in Libra promises an endless stream of social opportunities and attractive, generous companions. You will want to pace yourself and take a few brief time outs for the best results.
Venus will be retrograde from early March until mid-April. Your social life may natually pause now. If you're in a strengthening relationship and look forward to making a permanent commitment, consider waiting until the retrograde is over.
Love gets deeper and more serious after Jupiter moves into Scorpio in October. If your social life slows down, passions and intimate expressions will actually perk up.
Money, careers, and all work efforts are highlighted in 2017 for you, Leo. Of the four Mercury retrogrades, the second from early April until early May will start in hard-working, stable Taurus and end in self-motivated Aries. Work diligently, respect any financial contraints, and all your hard work can pay off in a big, long-lasting way.
Saturn is retrograde in fiery but fun Sagittarius from early April through late August. Be disciplined through the spring and summer, have clear goals, and make great allies in high places. Your efforts will be rewarded, although perhaps not instantly.
December may be the most demanding - and also profitable. Saturn goes home to its home sign, work-focused Capricorn on December 19. On December 21 the Sun also enters Capricorn and then conjoins Saturn. Take authority for your actions, efforts, and your future now.
