Welcome to 2017 Pisces! This is an extraordinary year for you as Saturn, continues its journey through your professional sphere, bringing with it even greater responsibilities and challenges but success if you’re prepared to step up to the plate and use these energies in a constructive way. Saturn will finally exit this part of your horoscope on December 20 marking a new phase of profitability and life fulfillment, the likes of which you haven’t experienced for almost 30 years. But for the meantime, you can expect more demands from your work which in turn will create a psychological environment for you to be the best you can.
Pluto with its conjunction of the Sun in the first week of January shows just how intense you are about achieving your goals this year. Mercury also makes the conjunction to Pluto on January 30 revealing the depth and perspicacity of your mind and the important communications that will underscore your relationships this year. The transformative influence of Pluto has been changing your attitude to friendships and 2017 will be no different. The process of clearly identifying those people you wish to maintain relationships with or not will continue and may even intensify in the next couple of years. You are clear that you only want people in your life were going to engage with you mutually on every level.
Jupiter transiting your eighth house of shared resources also spotlights the above point that not only intellectually and emotionally but also financially you want a fair deal in 2017. Jupiter remains in this eighth house until October 10 so you also have to deal with money, business partnerships taxes and perhaps even debts and wills, unfortunately. All of these issues come under the jurisdiction of the eighth house. Sometimes Jupiter is lucky and brings unexpected wealth through its transit here.
When Jupiter finally moves to your ninth house of luck, journeys and tertiary education, on October 10, you’ll start to see a positive shift in many departments of life. You may find yourself on a search for the meaning of life, and your thirst for knowledge could cause you to consider a new course of study or resume educational pursuits that you’d left off previously. It is also quite likely that new doors of opportunity will open allowing you to study, teach and travel.
This placement of Jupiter also reflects a strong spiritual flavour and you will start to feel an expanded connection to people and generally the world around you. Alternative forms of religion, meditation, foreign cultures and connections with, spiritual groups, will help you on your quest for peace and tranquility. You will experience a much more creative and intuitive energy within and without. Therefore it is a great time to meditate and discover the spiritual side of your being.
With some difficult aspect forming to Jupiter on March 3 to Uranus, August 5 to Pluto, and September 28 again to Uranus, all of these celestial patterns point to financial misunderstandings or difficulties especially with friends, which is accounted for by the challenging Jupiter-Pluto square of August. The lunar eclipse on February 11 and also the solar eclipse on August 22 affect your health and this could be linked some of these financial stresses that appear to be on the horizon. You must take control of the circumstances before they happen or at least minimise the damage that can occur through careful financial planning and intelligent communication.
Mars is dynamic this year as you start 2017 with a power pack punch of this planet's vibration in your Sun sign. The close conjunction to Neptune is not so great on January 1 but things pick up the have the physical vitality to achieve pretty much anything especially up until the 28th. Try to pace yourself to conserve energy.
From January 28 until March 10 your focus will be on the money with Mars transiting through your second house and thereafter from March 10 until April 21 strong contractual opportunities present themselves. Because Mars is fearsome and sometimes impulsive you need to again take the requisite precautions to read through any of the fine print before committing and signing to any documents.
The fourth house transit of Mars between April 21 and June 5 brings much of your attention to family matters. The Sun also transits this part of your horoscope on May 21 up until June 21. These two hot planets can create friction in your domestic sphere so it is imperative that you talk about your feelings rather than bottling them up and exploding at a later time. Real estate matters may also be up at the top of your agenda. This includes renovation, construction and even purchase of larger fixed asset items such as cars, boats, and land.
Your love life is spiced up considerably with Mars transiting through your fifth house of romance between June 5 and July 20. September 5 to October 23 is also romantically revved up with Mars moving through your seventh house. You will want greater intimacy in your relationships but may be heavy-handed in your way of approaching these things. If you’re meeting someone for the first time try to curb your impulse to push the relationship forward at a pace that is not in keeping with their needs or personality style. Mars is generally a good planet for you but it still has it's inherent impulsive and combative nature.
Prior to Saturn leaving its transiting position of your 10th house of career, on December 20, the trine aspect to Uranus on November 11 shows that it is an ideal time to explore new areas of interest in your work and to consider taking up new opportunities to broaden your horizons professionally. Some of you may decide on a career that is connected to technology, the Internet or other modern cutting-edge scientific fields of interest. You will be able to blend the traditional with the progressive elements of trade and industry.
Be careful not to overdo things on December 1 with Mars moves to the opposition of Uranus and at the same time on the ninth, transit your ninth house of journeys. Impulsive actions, speed, and recklessness may cause injury to yourself and others. On a brighter note, and the unexpected and unusual journey may take place which will be a nice conclusion to the year.
