Dear Libra, this is your general horoscope for 2016:
I wouldn’t be surprised if you wanted a refund, having been promised that 2017 would be your luckiest and most expansive year in over a decade, only to find that from Day 1 it feels like anything but. Chances are the final weeks of 2016 were stressful, putting pressure on your relationships and just generally feeling the kind of pressure you haven’t experienced before. However, before you protest rest assured, this won’t follow you into the New Year and if anything, this has already proved cathartic. The main problem was an opposition between Jupiter and Uranus, over in your relationship sector, with one thinking your needs should come first and the other that your relationships should come first. This is the first time this has happened here in eight decades and that it should happen just as you’re about to move into your biggest year for personal growth in over a decade, has to be seen as an opportunity for a major breakthrough. That is especially so as it was during that very time that a major alliance between the communication and relationship gods also peaked, giving you all the resources needed to turn this into an opportunity for a major breakthrough. Any tensions will drop off dramatically in the New Year, though January might be a busy month for you. It was developments that began on the home front in the final months of 2016 that need to be finalised, though these will be mainly sorted by early February at the latest. What is likely to take you by surprise is the almost dream start you have on the job front, how quickly things are set to take off and how much opportunity there is. A period of job growth began in the days leading up to Christmas but will extend right out to late April. This will make up for either the challenging or hard times on the work front over the last few years, with a lot more job growth and a lot less challenges. If this doesn’t bear immediate fruit it will do once Jupiter returns to your career sector on the 10th October, kicking off your luckiest year for income growth in over a decade, a year that will extend out to late 2018. In the meantime, something special is happening on the relationship front, putting the wakeup calls late last year into perspective. It is Venus and Mars, the planets of love and passion that are leading the charge into something special on the relationship front, during a period that begins on the 28th January and extends out to the 6th June. Throughout that time and right through to the 20th December, you will have the support of Saturn, in his third and final year in your communication sector.
