January 2017

Happy New Year and welcome to 2017!

With Saturn in a trine with Uranus for much of the year, we all have the opportunity for the practical application of our ideals. This transit can bring about genius insights, technological advances, and creative brilliance. It’s also favorable for rabble rousers who want to create change. Finding harmony between tradition and innovation makes an interesting journey going forward. Stay tuned and stay inspired.

That being said, expansive Jupiter is complicating matters with an opposition to Uranus all month long. This aspect creates impractical idealism and restlessness. It’s important to tap into that pragmatic Saturn energy this month if you want to create real, lasting change. The danger here is that the ideals are strong but the execution can be sloppy due to promises and commitments that are difficult to fulfill.  Nothing wrong with being idealistic but if you can’t bother to be disciplined enough to follow through, the ideals become nothing more than pipe dreams.

The year also starts out with Mercury retrograde, which means things may feel a bit wonky for a few weeks.  Mercury will retrograde back into Sagittarius on the 4th, which will give everyone a chance to examine what truth means to them. If you’ve been less than honest with others or yourself, this is a good time to reflect on how you might change that. Mercury will turn direct on the 8th and re-enter stable Capricorn on the 12th.  Over these few days, it will seem as if order is being restored. Keep in mind that Mercury in Capricorn is reserved and cautious. This Mercury does not favor bold declarations. Instead, logic and practicality rule the day.

We also have romantic Venus moving into compassionate Pisces on the 3rd.  Venus is exalted in Pisces, which means she’s very happy here. Empathy is strong during this transit and we all have a chance to connect with others on a deeper level. This Venus likes to merge body and soul. The only drawback is that sometimes this transit can lead to illusions or boundary issues.  Make sure you are not wearing rose colored glasses and do not let people take advantage of your soft nature. If your partner is a louse, no amount of sacrifice will “change them.” That is a job they need to do themselves.

A stunning Full Moon in Cancer on the 12th amps up the emotions and the intuition.  It’s an emo moon, my friends. Pay attention to your feelings and instincts on this day. Let your emotions guide your decisions.  It’s going to be an interesting day because with the Full Moon in Cancer has all the feels while Mercury in Capricorn has trouble expressing them. This day may be a battle between the head and the heart.

The Sun enters Aquarius on the 19th, right before the inauguration.  This transit signals a break from tradition and a desire for something new.  With Donald Trump stepping into the role of president, he’s bringing forth a completely different vibe than any president we’ve had in history.  He might shake things up in bigger ways than we assume when he moves into the White House. Remember, Aquarius is about rebellion AND innovation. How that pans out remains to be seen.

A New Moon in Aquarius on the 27th favors a fresh start, one that is centered on brotherhood. What’s good for all needs to be the motto going forward. A new order is on the horizon and you’ll want to stand shoulder to shoulder with people who share your vision for a just world. Break old, outworn traditions as need be and don’t be afraid to share your ideals and fight for them. But remember: be practical. If you want to create a real revolution, you must be realistic.

Mars heads into fiery Aries on the 28th. While Mars enjoys being here, do know that this energy is war-like. Tempers will be short and people are more likely to act on their impulses.  If you find yourself getting all hot under the collar, do your best to keep that aggro in check. This is not the time to go on a power trip!  Find the balance between being assertive without being a dick.

Annnndddd here’s your personal monthly scopes:


Aries:  You may find yourself in a leadership position at work as the year kicks off. Aries can be passionate leaders who inspire their followers but Mercury retrograde at the beginning of the year is a reminder to think before you speak, dear Aries. You may put your foot in your mouth and leave others questioning your abilities. Venus, Neptune and Mars in your 12th house also points to secret relationships that could perhaps come out in the open. If you are seeing someone on the sly, you’ll need to watch your step there too. Mercury will go direct on the 8th – followed by a Full Moon in your domestic sector on the 12th. A truth may be revealed that might rock the household. You’ll be able to lean on your friends starting on the 19th, when the Sun enters your 11th house of social life. In fact, getting out of the house may help to cool things down. Your ruling planet, Mars, moves into your sign starting on the 28th. This will energize you and make you feel like you’re getting your power back. If you find yourself in a tussle, you’ll be more than able to fend for yourself. The New Moon on the 27th is a perfect night for hanging with your buddies. Make a date for drinks after work or a small gathering. They’ve been there when you needed them the most this month – cheers to that!


taurus astrology

Taurus: January is ideal for a winter vacation, dear Taurus. With the Sun lighting up your house of travel for the first few weeks of January, there is no better time for hitting the slopes – or heading to somewhere exotic. Just remember that Mercury is retrograde until the 8th. Possible travel delays could test your legendary patience!  This month is also perfect for socializing. You’ve got Venus, Neptune and Mars in the social sector – it may be the winter months but why hibernate when so many groovy invites are coming your way? The Full Moon on the 12th finds you reflective. This is a good day for working on positive affirmations or for setting resolutions for the year. It doesn’t matter if you skipped starting that health regime on the 1st – this is actually a better time to begin! At work, you’re getting some attention when the Sun enters your career sector on the 19th. This is your opportunity to step up your game so don’t hold back. Mars enters your 2nd house of money on the 28th, which can bring an increase in your cash flow provided you are willing to hustle. This transit is not for the lazy – it’s for the ambitious who have their eyes on the prize and are willing to go for it, balls to the wall. The reward comes on the 27th, when the New Moon brings an unexpected opportunity.  When that door opens, don’t hesitate. GO. This could be the start of a genius period with ample opportunities to level up your career like never before!


gemini astrology

Gemini: This month is all about the Benjamins, dear Gemini. The Sun in your 8th house indicates financial power is yours as January kicks off!  You’ve got the ability to attract a lot more cash money into your life so don’t slack now. Even though Mercury, your ruling planet, is retrograde until the 8th, it won’t throw much salt on your game if you are willing to bust your hump. You’re clever as can be so even if you do encounter a snafu, you’ll find a workaround and keep the gold flowing. Venus, Mars and Neptune in your career sector will keep you in the public eye all month long. Your star is ascending and you’ll have a chance to wow the world. This is certainly a good time for you to promote yourself or your projects – all eyes are on you, waiting to see what surprise you’ll deliver next. An exciting financial door opens on the 12th when the Full Moon illuminates an opportunity. This day could also clear away another hurdle, paving the way for some serious financial channels to open. The 19th may find you traveling when the Sun moves into your travel sector. A business trip or vacation may be necessary.  If you need to go, feel free.  Mercury will direct so you shouldn’t encounter too many issues. A New Moon on the 27th favors a trip to a new destination. Where have you always wanted to visit? Book your tickets and make it happen.  Also of note: Mars will be entering your 11th house of friendships on the 28th. One word of advice: keep your friends close and your enemies closer.


cancer astrology

Cancer:  Relationships are front and center for most of January, dear Cancer. With the Sun in your 7th house, you’ll have an opportunity to connect with a special someone. For single Cancers, the potential for meeting someone new is strong. For those already partnered, it’s an ideal time for bonding through shared activities that foster communication. Keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde until the 8th – this means you’ll want to pay close attention to the signals the other person is sending you. Don’t make assumptions on that alone though – communicate with clarity and you could get more of what you want..and less of what you don’t. Your 9th house of travel is also active – perfect for a winter holiday!  Taking a time out to hit the beach might be in order!  On the 12th, a Full Moon in your sign clears the hurdles for your 2017 goals. Take this day to reflect on what you want to accomplish in the upcoming year. Recommit to the goals you didn’t finish last year and let go of the ones that are already done…or no longer relevant. This day is also perfect for a banishing ritual!  If you want to eliminate some thing or someone that has been holding you back, do it. Release!  Liberation, baby!  The 19th adds more heat to your sex life when the Sun enters your 8th house. A lusty few weeks await – indulge in your hottest fantasies. Career will also start moving into overdrive when fiery Mars storms into your 10th house on the 28th.  This is not a time to be timid. You’re going to need to come out of your shell and take command. If you are willing to do that, you could see some momentum in the weeks that follow.  Too scared? You may miss out on an opportunity to show your prowess and wow your superiors.  As the month comes to a close, the New Moon in Capricorn on the 27th creates an opportunity for intimacy.  This day may also open up a financial door that felt closed (ex: loan, real estate deal, etc.). Your move, dawg.


leo astrology

Leo: 2017 starts out with the Sun in your 6th house of work and health.  Are you ready to kick some ass at the office – or the gym, dear Leo? This is the right time to super-charge your efforts in both. You’ll get some amazing results if you are willing to commit. Pesky Mercury retrograde hangs around until the 8th, but even that won’t be able to stop you. When Leos set their mind to anything, nothing gets in the way, not even the cosmos!  Your romantic life will also be a big focus all month long. Venus, Mars and Neptune are palling around in your 8th house, which might bring some of your romantic fantasies to life. This could be a strong time for making your intimate intensions known.  The more open you are, the more likely you’ll get your desires fulfilled. A Full Moon on the 12th is perfect for taking a siesta or time out. Whether that be through a trip or just a quiet night of contemplation, make that the one day this month where you don’t push yourself. Even a fiery Leo needs a break!  Relationships get even more personal and dynamic when the Sun enters your 7th house of partnerships.  The weeks ahead may bring you closer with your loved one. Or, if you’re single, you may suddenly have some new options coming your way.  To top off all this romantic jazz, a New Moon on the 27th brightens your love outlook even more. This signals a fresh start or a new chapter. That could be a new partner who starts to capture your heart – or a current relationship going to the next level. And let’s not forget Mars heading into your travel sector on the 28th. Impulse trips? YES. January has all the wins, Leo, and no one is winning at life and love harder than you. Go on with your bad self!


virgo astrology

Virgo: You’re off to a very slow start this year, dear Virgo. That’s because your ruling planet, Mercury, is retrograde until the 8th. You might find that it’s difficult to start anything. Not just resolutions but also those creative projects that seem to be longing for your attention. Romance is also starting out a bit on the sluggish side, even though the opportunity is there. Circumstances may be preventing you from giving it the attention that it needs. However, when Mercury goes direct, it will seem as if the floodgates open up. Suddenly, your creativity flows with ease. Romance starts to blossom. Shizz is happenin’.  This will brighten up those cold winter days considerably. A Full Moon on the 12th could bring an important invite. This could lead to a night of fun – or a chance to travel to see an old friend…or old flame. It may also clear up a misunderstanding with a pal. It’s a powerful day! The Sun heads into your work and health sector on the 19th, which means you can begin those New Years resolutions for real now.  Commit to your health and organize your work life so it’s more efficient. Take a good, long hard look at where you are in your career – and revise your goals for 2017. On the 28th, Mars heads into your 8th house of sex, which means you can pursue your fantasies without apology.  After a slow start to the year, this might be a pretty hot couple of weeks ahead!  But don’t lose sight on an important work opportunity that arrives on the 27th. That day finds a glorious New Moon in your 6th house – this might be the green light you’ve been waiting for. All in all, you’re in a good position by month’s end.


libra astrology

Libra: This month starts off better suited for tackling domestic issues – both the home and the inhabitants, dear Libra. With the Sun and Mercury retrograde in your 4th house, make repairs to the home or to your relationships.  If you’ve been neglecting either, a little effort could go a long way. Mercury will go direct on the 8th, which could bring more opportunities to communicate with your loved ones. You could see some real momentum as the weeks progress  – stay on this. Your work life seems to be clipping along just fine. With Venus, Mars and Neptune in your work sector, you’re bringing innovative ideas into the office and this could make you stand out. A Full Moon on the 12th will put the spotlight directly on you. This might be the recognition you’ve been hoping for!  The 19th shifts the gears right back to your love life when the Sun brightens up your 5th house of romance. If you’ve been working on the communication in a current relationship, now come the rewards.  You may be moving to the next level soon. Single? The Sun in the 5th is optimal for finding love. And with fiery Mars heading into your 7th house of relationships on the 28th, you may not be single for long. A hot pursuit may be in the stars so do your best to be out there – and available. Of special note is the New Moon on the 27th – this spells a whole new chapter in relationships. An engagement, wedding or even a pregnancy is possible!  You’ll be ending the month feeling optimistic about your romantic future. It’s looking good!


scorpio astrology

Scorpio: January is excellent for learning, short journeys, and brainstorming, dear Scorpio. With the Sun energizing your 3rd house of mind, you’re ready to hit the road..or the books.  Maybe both. You’re certainly going to find plenty of things to keep your brilliant mind occupied, which is wise to do because Mercury retrograde may be tempting you to get involved in trivial matters. When Mercury goes direct on the 8th, you’ll be less inclined to get bothered with that stuff but until then…keep your mind busy and you’ll stay out of trouble. Another good thing to keep your mind moving in a positive direction: your 5th house of romance is loaded with dreamy Neptune, fiery Mars, and romantic Venus. This creates the perfect conditions for a sensuously romantic few weeks!  Get out the chocolates and practice your best come-hither look. Racy results are sure to follow!  On the 12th, the Full Moon may find you considering distant shores. If you’re thinking of going somewhere exotic, this may be the day to do it!  It will be harder to get out of Dodge on the 19th, when the Sun heads into your 4th house of domestic affairs. Suddenly, your household needs your attention. Loved ones may want you home – or the home may become a center for gatherings with the family. Mars will also be entering your work sector on the 28th, which means things at work are moving into turbo-time. Suddenly, the demands between work and family will become too great.  How to manage it all? A New Moon on the 27th will clear the way for you to get it all done. Hint: it means getting the family on board so that it’s not all on you. Set new ground rules – and then stick with ‘em.


sagittarius astrology

Sagittarius: December may have been expensive but you’re going to recoup that dough like a boss, dear Sagittarius. The Sun in your 2nd house shows a new source of income that may turn things around. Just be patient until Mercury goes direct on the 8th. Budget carefully in the first few days of the year and you’ll be on track to paying down debts and creating divine order in your finances. This will create the right structure for abundance as 2017 rolls on. You’re also putting some of your legendary wanderlust on hold for a bit – with Venus, Mars, and Neptune in your 4th house of domestic stuff, you’ll find that some of your biggest adventures are right under your nose at home. This could be quite romantic – home cooked meals at night, or Netflix and a bowl of popcorn may seem more appealing than jetting off to some glam locale. The Full Moon on the 12th brings greater intimacy or clarity to a current relationship. You’ll know where you stand and could get closer than ever. On the 19th, the Sun heads into your 3rd house, igniting your imagination like never before. Ideas are flooding in.  This could be the time to begin working on your novel or creating other works of art. Or you may simply find creative ways to solve problems that have stymied you for months. If you’ve been creatively blocked, that block is gone like the wind!  More intensity is possible in the bedroom when Mars adds some fire to your romantic life on the 28th. Who needs a fireplace when you’re keeping warm like this? A brilliant New Moon on the 27th helps you find the courage to state your desires out loud. Let your partner know exactly what you want – but be willing to return the favor. Yeah baby!


capricorn astrology

Capricorn: Happy birthday, dear Capricorn!  This is your month, so do make the most out of it. You’ve got extra swerve – which makes you irresistible. Work your charms and you could see many opportunities coming your way, both in career and love. But do keep your cool until after Mercury goes direct on the 8th. You don’t need to rush anything before then. Be patient and you’ll have greater clarity about which offers are golden…and which are duds.  You’re also going to be blessed with amazingly creative thinking all month long. Venus, Neptune and Mars in your 3rd house helps you to take those ideas and turn them into something tangible. You’ve got the vision and the discipline to make magical things happen. Direct your will and create!  The Full  Moon on the 12th lights up your relationship sector.  A new partnership may be coming into your life. Whether this is for biz or love, it stands to be significant so pay attention!  You’re ready to live long and prosper when the Sun moves into your 2nd house of finances on the 19th. Assertiveness will pay off handsomely. Ask for the raise, grab that promotion, or, if you’re self employed, start thinking about raising your rates. The weeks that follow could bring a lot more dough if you’re willing to step up. The 28th puts Mars in your home sector, which is sweet news if you’re launching ambitious home projects. If you’ve been meaning to renovate, move, or sell your home, this is the time to do it. Don’t worry too much about the money to make this happen – a New Moon on the 27th will bring a financial change for the better. The Universe is working hard to make it rain!



Aquarius: You’re normally social but this month finds you enjoying a bit of solitude, dear Aquarius. With the Sun, Pluto and Mercury retrograde in your 12th house of rest as the month kicks off, you’re more interested in hibernating. This isn’t to say that you’re abandoning your pals (you never would do that!). You just need some “me” time to regroup.  Take a time out to ponder your goals for 2017. Then, when Mercury goes direct on the 8th, start setting those plans in action. Your ability to attract money remains strong all month long but you’ll be tempted to spend some big bucks on luxe stuff you don’t really need.  Venus, Mars and Neptune in your 2nd house puts rose colored glasses on – making you a salesperson’s dream client. If you are purchasing under this influence, you may find yourself with buyers remorse when those glasses come off. Keep your impulse spending in check and you’ll avoid that. On the 12th, a Full Moon lands in your house of work. A major issue may be cleared up at this time. Or a pet project may get green-lighted.  Obstacles are moving out of your way. You’ll be gaining more momentum when the Sun heads into your sign on the 19th. This day symbolizes the beginning of a strong period for getting things done – and getting accolades for your efforts. You’re also ready to head back out to the social scene, which will delight your friends who’ve been probably missing you during that little retreat.  Better yet, Mars will join forces with your ruling planet, Uranus, in your 3rd house of mind on the 28th, igniting your brilliance with intensity. You’re in your genius zone for weeks. This is going to give you the ability to wow ‘em with your cleverness. Pay close attention to your gut – and any ideas that start to percolate. There’s gold in there. On the 27th, a New Moon in your sign says that a whole new phase is opening up for you. This could be a time of great expansion as the months unfold. Set your sights on superstar status and trust that the world is waiting for your arrival. Stuff’s getting real now.


pisces astrology

Pisces:  The year starts out with plenty of reasons to celebrate, dear Pisces. With Mars, Neptune and Venus in your sign, you’re getting your mojo back!  You’ve got loads of energy and star power which means that everyone is going to want to be in your orbit.  A busy 11th house shows a full social calendar – which means January will be getting off to a rip-roaring start!  Do keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde until the 8th – there may be some invitations that you just can’t do. Say no to the gatherings that zap your spirit but do say yes to the ones that light you up. On the 12th, a Full Moon in your romantic sector brings more good news: the potential for meeting someone new has arrived. If you’ve been single for a bit, this could be the beginning of a happy dating time with excellent suitors lining up. In a relationship? You may be clearing the air – and the calendar – for greater intimacy. All in all, this Full Moon could be the beginning of a fab period for love. The Sun heads into your 12th house of rest on the 19th, which may make you feel like taking a step back from all those parties. A quiet retreat may be more your style.  Do take a break where you can – a getaway to a meditation center or even a staycation with the tech on silent will recharge you in the best way possible.  Finances need your attention on the 28th when Mars comes ripping into your 2nd house. You can make and spend money with ferocity at this time. Keep your impulse in check so you don’t blow through your stash in the weeks that follow. A New Moon on the 27th will encourage you to seek more solace. Use this day to contemplate your direction going forward. Insights that arise on this day may pave the way for a whole new path or lifestyle. Better yet, Mars will help you to implement anything you dream up. The future is wide open…and yours for the taking.
