Horoscope 2017

Horoscope 2017The wide, all-encompassing universe in which we live has been traditionally sorted into four elements: fire, earth, air, and water. Each of us carries with us a bit of all the elements, but as we dig farther into our personalities, most of us can recognize the one element that dominates our character in disposition and habits. Knowing oneself is the key to becoming the best we can be, and our element is the first of many facets that make us the unique, growing individuals we are.

Three zodiac signs are categorized into each of the four elements. The signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are ruled by the energetic element of Fire. Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are Earth signs, ruled by realism. The social and curious Air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. And the emotional element of Water controls the signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces.

The four vital energies, while vastly different from one another, cannot be easily categorized in terms of the conflicting black and white of good and evil. Instead, the four fit together and balance into an equilibrium that comprises all that we know and all that we are. As Deepak Chopra said, “There are no extra pieces in the universe. Everyone is here because he or she has a place to fill, and every piece must fit itself into the big jigsaw puzzle.”

2017 is the Year of the Rooster in the Chinese zodiac, and begins January 28th. The Rooster is the tenth of the twelve Chinese zodiac signs following the chaotic year of the Monkey. The associated element of 2017’s Rooster is Yang Fire, which contains the light of the sun to shine on all things. This will bring illumination to lingering questions, and bring problems out of their hiding places to be fixed once and for all.

The Fire Rooster is representative of the qualities of punctuality, fidelity, and problem-solving. This symbol of the year brings leadership, management, and confidence to the world. The incendiary nature of the Fire Rooster (also known sometimes as the Phoenix) destroys everything in its path, but it leaves in its wake a canvas fresh and ready for new life to be planted and sown.

Roosters, well-known for being fertile, will bring new life to a world that needs it, and will remain steadfast in protecting it at all costs. Where the Monkey brought mayhem, the Rooster will restore the order necessary to move on from the catastrophes of 2016, but it will not be an easy transition. Hard work is required of everyone, even those who need to be pushed in the right direction, in order for the rebirth that will harken a new, better world.

The year 2017, the Universal 1 Year, is one of abundant transitions for all four elements. The beginning of the year brings upset that will leave many people feeling as if they have been orphaned in a world they no longer understand. Throughout the year, hope will spring up like the leaves of new flowers as they sprout from soil once scorched by the fires of revolution.

By the end of the year, many old systems will be destroyed, and new ones will be erected on the foundations of conviction and discernment. Though much change will have happened, however, not everything will be set in stone. We will need each of the elements to play their part in a new numerological cycle which will leave civilization and the flora and fauna upon which we base our existence changed forever.

Fire Zodiac Signs 2017Horoscope 2017: Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)

Fire Signs are the most misunderstood of the four universal elements, and for good reason. Fire signs can be warm and comforting one moment, consumed with sensual or creative passion the next, and burning out in an explosion of spleen all in the span of a day. Therefore, fire signs need to be tempered and controlled by the other signs and their own personal system of checks and balances to reach a satisfactory personal equilibrium.

Enthusiasm and passion are the norm for fire signs, but lately they may have seemed muffled. The gas giant, Saturn, has been in Sagittarius since 2014, but by the end of 2017, will have finally completed its muting tour. This will mean that the slow burn of fire signs will suddenly be ignited in December, and the lack of enthusiasm that has dominated the last few years will be obliterated and turned to ash from which fire signs can be reborn.

Thankfully, all four retrogrades of Mercury this year will end in the fire signs, which will stoke the flames of creative problem-solving in your life as the year progresses. Courage and temperance are important virtues to embrace for fire signs, even if they might not be in your nature; sometimes going against your impulses can be rewarding.

The stimulus created for Mercury’s retrogrades could go sideways if not handled with care, so be sure you are not firing from the hip as you sign off on situations of consequence and import. But do not be so caught up in temperance that you fail to act. As Horace Porter said, “Be moderate in everything, including moderation.”

Romance will be gradual to catch on, but once it does, it will ignite quickly and consume your days. Be sure to pour fuel on it slowly and steadily. Too much given too quickly will leave it explosive like a pyrotechnic show and apt to burn out; too little applied too slowly will snuff it out and leave you feeling like you missed out on something special. Remember the tortoise and the hare: slow and steady wins the race in love and in life.

Earth Zodiac Signs 2017Horoscope 2017: Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)

Earth signs were born grounded, so will always be the voice of reason in situations with the other elements. Any time someone goes too far into the clouds, earth signs are around to grab them by the ankle and bring them back, even if they must do it kicking and screaming. Feet on the ground and head firmly within reality, earth signs might seem to some to be boring or without a sense of wonder, but their practicality and application is one of the reasons the world keeps turning and changing for the better.

They are especially necessary now as the foundation of the past nine-year cycle has crumbled. Earth signs will use sensibility and well-laid plans to build the bedrock upon which the next nine years will be constructed, starting with the universal 1 year of 2017. Realistic and loyal, earth signs lay the groundwork for change without regards to the blowing winds of skepticism.

As the year begins, the alignment of the Sun and Pluto in Capricorn will bring a sudden burst of authority and mightiness to earth signs. Though you may be eager to make choices and begin new projects, restrain your enthusiasm and recheck your plans before you jump into anything. Stopping to be thorough at this point will help eliminate mistakes that will cost time, money, and forward momentum.

Saturn will enter Capricorn at the end of the year and bring an increased urge to buckle down and complete projects left open. As Neil Gaiman said, “Whatever it takes to finish things, finish. You will learn more from a glorious failure than you ever will from something you never finished.” Always finish what you start. Harness the momentum to finish what you started and tie your work up with a bow that leaves everyone else hoping to work with and be near you as 2018 begins.

Air Zodiac Signs 2017Horoscope 2017: Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)

Air signs are expressive wisps of sensation that float through the lives of the other signs leaving enhanced understanding and the kind of abstract thoughts that bring about change in the entire world. They have never been more necessary as the new nine-year cycle begins, so it is important for other signs to know how they tick. They can be chilly when crossed, or wrap you in gusts of kindness when in their good graces, but they are catalysts for the change we all need.

The moon and Venus will start out in Aquarius this year, which will leave air signs feeling lucky in all facets of life. Though you are normally unemotional and sort of detached, this year will change that. Everything you touch will feel like it turns to gold, like the Greek King Midas, and the people you meet, whether old friends or new acquaintances, will be drawn to your wit and charm like never before.

Breezing through life this year will be easy, but your typical aloof lack of ambition would mark your year with the pollution of uselessness. Make sure you never stop trying to improve everything around and within you. “Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine. Ain't nowhere else in the world where you can go from driving a truck to Cadillac overnight,” Elvis Presley said.

Your new ability to enact change in your surroundings can bring you the kind of attention that leads to a certain measure of fame if you want it to; at the very least, your name will be on the lips of well-connected others for many months this year. Use this spotlight to enhance your work situation, make more connections, and even find that special someone if you are looking for love.

Be a breath of fresh air for others this year, and they will remember you fondly for years to come. As 2017 is a Universal 1 year, you can be a catalyst for a new awakening for everyone you come into contact with, no matter how fleetingly; your reach will be far and wide, so make sure your whispers in the ears of others are filled with goodwill, not pettiness, or you will find that the winds of change will turn into a storm that does not fall in your favor.

Water Zodiac Signs 2017Horoscope 2017: Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces)

Water signs are healing, sensitive, and empathetic people who crave emotional security in all their relationships. They can be as refreshing as a cool glass of water on a hot day, or as intense as the raging rapids of a river depending on their mental state and the environment in which they find themselves. Still waters nearly always run deep, and such is the case with water signs in the coming year.

Numerology tells us that 2017 is a universal 1 year, which represents the start of a new nine-year cycle. What that means is that changes are coming in many facets of life, and boldness is the order of the day. Ignore what you think are psychic warnings, because your wariness around the new things coming into your life is unwarranted. You should be overcome with joy and expectation of the good things on your radar.

2017 will be a year full of surprises for water signs due to the conjunction of Mars and Neptune in Pisces in the first quarter. It will continue in the same vein for most of the year, especially when Jupiter enters Scorpio in October. Planting seeds early and cultivating them to thrive will make for a stellar beginning to what is sure to be a groundbreaking decade.

Take heed that those born of water must take on the mantle of cleanser and life-bringer, but also of the well of limitless exuberance. Water signs are ruled by the moon, and so must understand the cycles of life as they play out in your days. Follow her as she guides you, yet also follow your instincts in what you do, because when you ignore your gut, you ignore your own power. “The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining,” said U.S. President John F. Kennedy in his 1962 State of the Union address, and it is as true now as it was then. Failure to plan is the same as planning to fail.
