Dear Virgo, this is your general horoscope for 2016:
Despite the fact that there might be some financial tension or pressure in the air as you move into 2017, with that is likely to be a sense of determination, but also a better awareness of the importance and value of both money coming in and money going out. 2017 is without a doubt a lucky and lucrative year and with lucky Jupiter in your income sector until the 10th October, but his support crew staying on until December, that will remain the case throughout the year. Why then, if you’re moving into such a potentially lucrative year, with lucky Jupiter on your side for the first time in 12 years, should you be feeling under pressure? It was an opposition with Uranus over the holiday period in late 2016 that saw old financial beliefs, attitudes and assumptions challenged, in a way that may not have resulted in an actual financial breakthrough, not yet anyway, but resulted in a major paradigm shift in the way you look at money matters. For all their differences over the holiday period, it seems that the money gods have shorted things out, with money matters taking precedence in the first half of the year and income matters in the second half. Jupiter will spend from the 6th February to the 9th June in retrograde motion and while this will open the door to the past, second chances and untapped potential throughout that time, income matters will be happy to just tick over. With some of the best months of the year for money matters running from the 28th January to the 6th June, the money gods couldn’t be more cooperative if they tried. Yet it won’t be just about the money this year. The year will get off to a good start on the work front, but is not an overly busy year. However, a lunar eclipse in your relationship sector on the 7th August does suggest fate will play a role on the job front this year. What you will find in 2017 is just how important work/life balance is and how unwilling you are to carry the dramas and pressures of last year into the New Year. You’ll be happy to cruise professionally, so long as the money is there and last year’s personal and/or relationship tensions and challenges make way for some quality relationship building this year. Any pressure or drama you’re feeling at the start of the year is more a hangover from last year and once you move out from under the shadow of 2016 it will drop off.
