Summary: Saturn in your travel house works with Jupiter and Uranus to bring benefits to partnerships and personal plans. A major focus on romance, children, and creativity, with two eclipses and the movement of the fated North Node to this sector.
Extended Aries 2017 Horoscope: The end of 2016 could have brought good news regarding a relationship, vacation, or long-term goal your way, as Saturn, Uranus, Jupiter, and Venus all sent positive beams to each other in these sectors.
If not, 2017 could be just the year to help you out with your relationship and travel goals!
Saturn spent all of last year seriously inhibiting your travel and educational goals. You may have been too busy or stressed for a vacation, or perhaps you were hard at work on a thesis or course of study.
Although Saturn will continue to make his way through your travel sector throughout 2017, the difference is that this year Saturn will get major support from other planets, whereas last year he was under constant attack (with the exception of December 2016, which was quite lovely).
The other big influence this year in your life is Jupiter’s movement through your 7th house of relationships. Jupiter in this house could have seen you engaged or married or achieving some kind of goal with a personal or business partner. Jupiter’s influence may even be as simple as lightening the atmosphere between you and a long-term partner.
Jupiter and Saturn will work together in January and late August to bring rewards to relationships, travel, and education. These would be great times to plan a romantic vacation.
Adding to your good fortune, Saturn will also be working with another change-making planet, Uranus, in your sign, further blessing all things travel, education, and spirituality. Look to May and November to make your moves!
Unfortunately, it’s also possible you encounter some difficulties with relationships this year. Particularly in February, when Mars will conjunct surprising Uranus in your sign and the pair will oppose Jupiter in your relationship zone. You may feel caught between your needs and a partners’ at this time.
Also watch out for March or early August, when mighty Jupiter in your relationship house angers transformational Pluto in your career zone. Authority figures could prove difficult, or career needs may be at odds with family ones.
Home and family could then prove difficult in July, as Uranus in your sign gets caught in an angry blast from Mars in your home house.
Eclipses this year fall in your goals and romance/children houses, and the good news is that these are pretty friendly eclipses this year!
February 10th sees a lunar eclipse in your love/children zone making beautiful music with three major heavy hitting planets- Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus. This eclipse could see you take a major step with a romantic partner- perhaps even becoming engaged or married. You might even have a baby!
The solar eclipse on August 21st in your love house has similarly gorgeous aspects, as it will not only invoke Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, but also bring Mars and the fated North Node to the party to help you achieve your romantic, creative, or child-related goals.
This focus on children and romance is further amplified by the movement of the fated North Node into your love house in late April. The North Node brings benefits and fated events to the area of life he transits, and luckily, it seems that it will be mostly positive things happening!
Look to June, when the North Node will reach out happily to Venus and Uranus, blessing romance, children, pregnancy, and creativity.
September is another gorgeous North Node month, as she’ll send smooches to both Saturn in your travel house and Jupiter in your relationship zone.
Now, back to eclipses…
August 7th sees another eclipse- this time lunar- fall in your goals sector, and again, this eclipse will reach out happily to Jupiter and Saturn in your identity and travel zones. Remember, lunar eclipses tend to bring situations to a completion, and solar eclipses see us launch new chapters and initiatives. You might achieve a long-held dream at this time, perhaps involving education, travel or spirituality. Or you could attend a fun social event.
This year also sees the final eclipse of the Pisces/Virgo series, and this eclipse will be a solar eclipse occurring in your closure zone on February 26th. The eclipse will conjunct Neptune, and sextile Pluto in your career sector, suggesting that you could end a job or assignment. The eclipse will opppose the North Node in your work and health zone, suggesting that whatever comes up could be challenging.
Look for this to come to a head around September 6th, when there’s a corresponding full moon in Pisces.
The end of the year sees the tide shift to other areas of life, as Jupiter moves into your financial zone in November, and Saturn moves into your career house in December.
Jupiter in the 8th house will bless money, loans, shared accounts, intimacy and transformation. In fact, December is extra lovely, as good luck Jupiter makes a loving trine with Neptune in your closure zone.
Mercury retrogrades this year from
April 9th- May 3rd (in Taurus/Aries, your houses of salary and identity),
August 12- Sept 5th (in Virgo, your work and health sector), and
December 3rd- 22nd (Sagittarius, your travel sector)
Since Mercury rules both your work/health house and your communication zone, you may rethink and review these areas of life during those times as well.
Venus retrogrades from
March 4th-April 15th (in Aries/Pisces- your identity and closure houses)
