Dear Aquarius, this is your general horoscope for 2017:
Moving into the New Year with Venus in Aquarius is an advantage but not a rare one. What is rare is for her to have been here since early December or for Mars to have recently moved through. Venus will leave on the 3rd January and won’t return until 2018, yet while she will spend less than 72 hours of the year here, her influence on the year itself is massive. This allows you to begin the year with your heart engaged from the get go, a clear sense of what you want and also ready to embrace your passions. Even more important was the chance this gave Venus and therefore your heart, to connect with Jupiter in the final weeks of 2016, for he is the one planet that will have the biggest influence on the year itself. Jupiter will remain in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery until the 10th October and when he returns to your career sector to begin your biggest professional year in over a decade, a sense of adventure will remain in safe hands through to December. Something has been awoken that you are unable to put back in the box, with simply going through the motions no longer an option and this is set to have an impact on all that you do. Whether it is making the most of the lucrative first four months of the year, the career developments later in the year or something special and fateful developing on the relationship front, this will bring a constant reminder that it is all about the journey. That there is something fateful developing on the relationship front is more a dark horse at first, with a lunar eclipse in your relationship sector on the 11th February suggesting that fate is at play, but without really knowing what. It might not be until midyear and until a total solar eclipse in your relationship sector on the 21st August that the hands of fate will be revealed. However, you don’t have two eclipses in your relationship sector, six months apart without them being linked and without fate being at play behind the scenes. This makes the extraordinary amount of time that Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships will spend in your communication sector this year make sense. Venus, planet of love and guardian of your relationships will usually spend between 24 to 26 days in your communication sector each year, on a mission to give your heart and your relationships a voice. With fate seemingly at work on the relationship front this week, this is something Venus must be aware of. To start with Venus will move through your communication sector from the 3rd February to the 3rd April, so will be here during the lunar eclipse in your relationship sector on the 11th August. However, she will then return for a double dip visit from the 28th April to the 6th June. The communication and relationship gods are working in unison, but to what ends they’re keeping under wraps for now.
