Libra 2017

2017 Overview

Libra Horoscope
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.


The biggest danger you face as you move into the New Year is complacency, assuming that Venus, who leaves on the 3rd January will return again later in the year. After all, she has been here since early December 2016, so you’re right to assume that she’ll return later in the year, right? Wrong. Venus will spend less than 72 hours of 2017 in your romantic sector and like Mars, who left just before Christmas, won’t return until 2018. While the Sun will move through your romantic sector from the 21st January to the 19th February and Mercury from the 7th February to the 26th February, once they are gone all you will have are the Moon’s monthly visits to keep the romantic flame burning. I don’t say to disappoint you, rather to urge you to hold onto the considerable romantic influence you move into the year with. Mars only left on the 19th December 2016 and having spent the previous six weeks fuelling your romantic passions and fighting spirit, it won’t take much to keep that flame fuelled. At the same time, while Venus may leave on the 3rd January and not return until 2018, like a bell that can’t be un-rung, starting the year with the planet of love holding your hand, is going to put the year on a romantically charged course from the get go. Your job is to keep that romantic flame burning and to work with the Sun and Mercury in the first two months of the year, to channel this into something concrete. There are two reasons why Venus isn’t spending a lot of time in your romantic sector this year. The first reason is you don’t need her, with the romantic flame you start the year with very easy to maintain. The second reason is that Venus is giving your relationships a lot of attention this year. While Venus will spend less than three days of 2017 in your romantic sector, she will spend over three months in your relationship sector. Normally Venus will spend just 24 days working her magic on your relationships. Instead, Venus will return on the 3rd February and won’t leave until the 3rd April, two months later and even then, will return for a double dip visit from the 28th April the 6th June. Within that period is a month long period, from the 4th March to the 3rd April, when in retrograde motion Venus will hold the doors open to the past and second chances. Even Mars will spice things up with a visit from the 28th January to the 10th March, both working their magic long before your annual relationship review begins on the 20th March. Between her return on the 3rd February to her departure on the 6th June Venus will create some very special relationship building months. This puts the personal and/or relationship tensions that may have come to a head in the final weeks of 2016 into perspective, getting old issues out of the way first.


On the most part it is business as usual in the early part of the year, but there is likely to be a sense from the get go that either something is building or that this is going to be a lucrative year for you. Those of you canny enough to have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground, will sense that this is the year that your boat will finally come in. It will, but not until the later part of the year, though there may be small signs that things are shifting before then. To start with, with no planetary activity in either of your two money houses, the focus is more on having your work hat on and that would have been the case regardless. You’ll not only move into the year with Mars in your work sector, but with Venus returning on the 3rd January this gives your 2017 professional year a major head start. No matter what the professional gods are up to this year, with Mars in your work sector until the 28th January and Venus until the 3rd February, but then returning for a double dip visit from the 3rd April to the 28th April, this was always going to lead to income opportunities and potential. It is a Full Moon in your income sector on the 10th May, just 12 days after Venus’ departure that will bring your first real chance to reap the rewards. The key factor about the amount of time that Venus will spend in your work sector this year, is that as a money god at heart, where she is concerned, where the heart leads the money will follow. Again, that would have been the case in any year, but even more so with lucky Jupiter returning to your income sector on the 10th October, kicking off your luckiest year for income opportunities and your biggest year for income growth in over a decade. This is a year that will take until November 2018 to run its course, with support rushing in during Jupiter’s early weeks, support that will turn the final three months of 2017 into not only the most lucrative months of this year, but in over a decade. Venus and Mars knew this when they are firing things up on the job front in the early months of the year, making it even more important to follow your heart and embrace the things you’re passionate about. Your financial situation and money matters will get their turn when a parade of planets move through your financial sector from the 10th March to the 5th July. During this period your annual financial review will play out, you’ll have the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game, but thanks to Venus and Mars you’ll also have a chance to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit. Normally this is more about taking care of financial housekeeping, with Venus and Mars wanting something a little more exciting and daring than that.

 About Libra

Librans are good at relationships. Ruled by Venus, they are charming, thoughtful and diplomatic, always remembering to pay compliments, buy anniversary presents and open the car door. Easy going Librans like everything to run smoothly, and hate discord. They will go to any lengths to avoid an argument. They feel like only half a person without a partner, so they don't shy from commitment. In fact, a happy marriage or partnership is high on their list of must haves.

The trouble is, Librans never know when to turn off the charm, and can arouse jealousy by continuing to spread the love even when they've been snared. Make sure your ease with relationships doesn't get you into big trouble, because nothing is more ugly than two Scorpios fighting over the same Libran.
