Sunday, 1 January 2017


Very different territory lies ahead for much of the world, compared to the last decade. More to the point, what has been brewing undercover over the last 9/10 years is now erupting. Early last year, Pluto started revealing (as he entered the nemesis phase of his journey through Capricorn) the fallout of ongoing misuse of power (economic and military) and the focus on growing unashamed inequality of wealth and the much-unchecked corruption in financial dealings, as the dark side of free market uber capitalism and the complexities and fallout of globalisation run wild. The resultant growing legitimate anger and discontent of the populace, increasingly marked in the western world, especially as nothing was being done to redress the huge imbalance of wealth, has shown itself in total rebellion against the perceived status quo, some scapegoating and indeed just a desperate desire for change (at often a largely unexamined price). 

Extreme right wing economics that has hubristically dominated since Pluto went into Capricorn in 2008 (despite the warning economic crash around then) is creating the nemesis of a left wing economic rebellion in the populace. Simultaneously, the fallout of globalisation  (established from when Pluto was in Sagittarius: 1996- 2008) is now also creating a right wing cultural backlash (rebellion) within the same populace. All extremes (whether religious, social, economic or politically left or right) are pathological. 

Uranus (unpredictability/rebellion) in Aries (impulsiveness) is now moving direct (since end of last month) having been retrograde since late July last year. This will prove a speeding up of the results of this rebellion. However with Saturn now trining Uranus for much of 2017, there will be a sense of fear and caution (Saturn) incorporated into the new dynamics of change (Uranus), as the change experienced and desired will be more daunting than anticipated, even to those who championed the changes.  However, Jupiter, though sextiling Saturn now, will also till April, be opposing Uranus for much of the year, which will also bring more surprises, rebellions, adrenalin and risky/unconventional global ventures.

Rebellion was /is needed, but with the power of media and its often misleading propaganda (Neptune in Pisces from 2012-2025) has seen the rise of smoke and mirrors journalism (and social media), a tendency to being more economical with truth and with the power and influence of populist opportunists and post truth politics and with the downgrading of “experts” in the ascendancy, certain controversial radical choices have been made by much of the populace, because of valid righteous, but desperate anger. Too much complexity and a sense of loss of control in our globalised world is a recipe for creating a desire for more simplicity.  There is a desire to make society more localised and more directly controlled by those in it. Depersonalisation of modern life has become an enemy to us psychologically in many ways. Hence we have Brexit and its promise of more self-determination and the desire by Trump and his supporters to create a more self-protectionist America. This is a maybe “rose coloured spectacled” desire to return to the past (good old days), in many ways (Neptune in Pisces). You cannot however undo complexity, once created, and in fact trying to undo it, only seems to create even more complexity.  We unleash more remoteness and complexity as “civilisation” and technology evolves.

Neptune being so strong in Pisces (religion /spirituality/ illusion and grandeur) since 2012 till 2025 has also brought world focus on the globalised dangers of religious extremism, and its politicisation, with heinous results.

The other more positive side of Neptune in its home sign of Pisces gives an increase in sensitivity to nature and in matters of the heart. The desire to protect nature from mans’ indiscriminate destruction of it and from the effects of our influence generally in terms of climate change, and also in a desire to protect the vulnerable in all life forms. This will be a force that will not go away and which will just grow, especially in the hearts of the maturing younger generation. A looming clash between the forces of humanitarianism/ spiritual ideals and ruthless, pragmatic economics and nationalistic protectionism is growing.  It could be perceived as a fight between good versus evil, but that is maybe too simplistic.
Saturn (restriction / reality checks) in Sagittarius (truth /ideologies /internationalism) since December 2014 has also correlated with questioning of and rebellion against globalisation and against certain assumed freedoms. As a result, nationalism and a sort of tribalism have grown.

With ruthless wars/troubled economies and geophysical upheavals and feeling of lack of control in society, it seems any strong man/woman will do to take the reigns, as a perceived deliverer of salvation, no matter how controversial, so long as he /she offers a radical alternative, even a ruthless (and in truth an often undeliverable) strategy.

Neptune in Pisces can give the illusion of salvation through mirage and chimera and sentimental idealism too. 
2017 will probably bring rebellion against the rebellion (ongoing Uranus square to Pluto) as the changes chosen will be often proven to manifest in worse poverty and more abuse of power, rising right wing nationalism and prejudice against and denial of inconvenient facts; all with potentially globally dangerous consequences. The looming reality of cyber warfare will become more evident this year too. The fact is, that for every “advance” in our civilisation, there is a price to pay.

On inauguration day Trump’s chart is bathed in Jupiter glory (trine his Sun and sextile his Moon), but Saturn in Sagittarius lurks strongly in the background (opposing his Sun and conjuncting his Moon) and is then strong in challenge throughout much of the year, as he bears the weight of much greater problems and complexities than he probably anticipates. However with Uranus strongly influencing several of his natal planets throughout 2017 (every 42 year connections) one can safely assume to expect the unexpected/ and the lateral from him. (No surprise there then)

Mercury moves direct from the 8th of this month, bringing some weeks of uncertainty and speculation to and end. The brakes are off and we will have a clearer idea of the nature of the path (and its main walkers) ahead.

This is our destined path and humanity has a journey that runs in cycles. Nothing should really surprise us. 

As Mark Twain reputedly remarked, “ History does not necessarily repeat itself, but it certainly does tend to rhyme” 

One thing is sure; nature will have the last word.

Late February, July and November /December are the highest risk of Geophysical upheaval e.g. earthquakes etc, when Mars conflicts with Uranus. There is also then the unexpected and dangerous in the geopolitical world. 

When Jupiter moves into Scorpio in October for a year, we will all be very much more affected and influenced by emotional charge, rather than rationality, which can work for better or worse, depending on the motive. Motive is everything.

The Moon is full on the 12th at 22 degrees of Cancer and is new on the 27th/28th at 8 degrees of Aquarius. Full Moons emphasise what is going on in the unconscious, often quite disturbingly, but cathartically; and closure is in the air. By contrast the new Moon is an excellent time for a fresh new chapter, especially when in Aquarius, the sign of the future and innovation.


The year starts with Mercury still retrograde until the 8th, which will bring some frustrations and blocks before that date, particularly for your sign, connected to long distance issues of travel, or possibly legal issues, but there is a lot of focus on work as the year starts.

The first two days of the month are a window of opportunity for those born after April 16th for social enjoyment and for working happily with groups and with friends.  After the 3rd, there is a little bit more privacy needed and appreciated. 

Before the 28th however, with Mars being in your Solar Twelfth House, it is important to ensure that you do not sit and seethe about anything that is frustrating or angering you, but after the 28th early Aries born up to March 24th will feel a surge of energy, drive, assertiveness and ambition.  Just ensure that it doesn’t become aggression; and indeed others may have an impact on you with their will.

Jupiter currently is opposing the Suns of those born April 10th to 14th.  For this group there is a possibility of travel, expansion, confidence, but which can teeter into over-confidence and over-indulgence and other people may encourage you to take a step too far, but with moderation this can be an enjoyable and expansive time, particularly as Saturn is transiting the Suns’ of the same group, bringing a measure of caution, care and pragmatism.  So, on balance this can be an extremely positive and constructive time of progress with groundedness.

As Uranus is also affecting the similar group, particularly for those born April 9th to 12th, for whom there is much change in the air and there is a great feeling of a need for excitement, adventure, something new and to get away from the old and the worn and to be a little on the maverick side.  This can be a very liberating time for this group of people, provided you don’t jump into change for its own sake. 

If born April 5th to 8th, there is a powerful Pluto Square to your Suns, creating a sense of inner struggle – a sense of destiny and maybe a fear of your own power, but this is a period when you need to acknowledge that the time has come to grab your true vocation in life – even if it does mean the end of a chapter of one phase and the birth of another.  This takes courage, honesty and good motive.  The power you are feeling is not yours; you are the agent of it, not the owner.  

Travel may well be on the cards, but with Mercury retrograde until the 8th, check schedules carefully; and also know that between the 4th and 8th you need to keep an eye on finances. 

From the 3rd, Venus in Pisces brings for all born up to May 19th a harmonious sense of working well with other people and sociability is underlined.  Popularity too.

Before the 28th, with Mars also in your Solar 7th house, for all born after April 28th, great energy can be put into pursuing your projects in being an excellent leader in the coordinating of tasks collectively. 
You many also be relied upon to organise social occasions for others. 

After the 28th however, just beware that you may need to not fester any resentment that has been building. Behind the scenes activities are more to the fore. 

You may find yourself seeking out the new and the exciting and the slightly out-of-the-box in your working practices.  Change is in the air, liberating new things connected to your everyday routine. 

Neptune is in his final flourish of sextiling the Suns of those born April 28th to May 1st.  You have been on a journey which has opened your heart and sensitised you and this is completing, but you will never lose the emotional richness it has brought you and also the ability to appreciate your creative gifts. 

Be aware, however, if born May 6th to 9th, that Pluto is very much on your case and will be on and off until the end of 2017, but all in a very positive way.  This is a time of regeneration, renewal, transformation and the ability to really rise to the occasion.  This influence started at the beginning of 2016 and is now seriously underway.  Inspiration and empowerment can come from long distance issues and through travel.  One thing is certain; there is a sense of a new confidence and a new purpose. 


Many of you have experienced Saturn oppositions in 2016.  In 2017, Saturn is still in Sagittarius, opposing Gemini.  However, for those born before June 11th the oppositions have gone, so there should be a greater sense of freedom to move forward without blockage.

However, for those born after the 11th, Saturn will be an important feature this year, with reality checks and the opportunity to grow and learn by stepping up to the plate.  Those born June 11th to 16th will be particularly affected.  For you, this is a time of feeling as if it’s one step forward, two steps back.  But this a time to reconsider and re-think goals and techniques and how you’re trying to get there.  Be calm, avoid anger and review.  And above all, be patient. 

However, to help you out, Jupiter is also trining the Suns’ of those born June 11th to 15th, suggesting that the cavalry arrives to help give you a sense of ultimate progress, even if delayed; and certainly creativity, love life; and indeed children’s issues can be feeling very progressive. 

With Mercury retrograde, it is possible that between the 4th and the 8th, there may be a need to check communications very carefully with others and to stop and think carefully to make sure that communications are accurate.  Misunderstandings are in the air.  After the 8th, things move forward more smoothly. 

Before the 3rd, if born after June 17th, travel is well aspected and romance and travel go hand in hand.

Whereas after the 3rd, for all born up to June 18th, there could be a little bit of over-indulgence or over-expectation, or even some hypocrisy in terms of sycophancy in order to move forward in work. 

More importantly, for those born after May 21st and before the 28th, Mars is squaring your Suns.  Be very careful about impatience and irritability in your working life.   Others too may be pushing you a bit too hard.  Keep calm and don’t let others’ irritability or your own, get out of control. 

After the 28th, very early Gemini’s born May 21st to 23rd get a feeling of real constructive progress and courage is strong. 

Those born June 10th to 13th also have Uranus bringing a need for excitement and change in a very positive way. You’re looking outside the box, technology is beneficial and you are being liberated, despite any delays, into a new chapter of life and a new enlightened attitude. 

However, if born May 30th to June 2nd, just keep your eye on the ball at work and don’t take anything for granted.  Check people’s credentials and ensure you’re seeing situations, projects, documents and colleagues clearly. 


This year the major issue for Cancerians continues to hover around the principle of Uranus and Pluto. 

From March 2017, Uranus is continuing to square the Suns’ of those born July 13th to 15th.  This has been ongoing for most of 2016, but really will ease off by April, so this is the last ditch of a restlessness and a feeling of ongoing change that may well be related to work or career, that may be forced upon you because of unnerving events, or because you yourself realise that you need to liberate yourself in some way into an area which more suits your development. 

With Jupiter currently opposing Uranus, this may involve a radical change, not only in work, but in your domestic circumstances, even a geographical change, for the need for something new, different or exciting or more valid is in the ether. 

However, for those born around July 8th to 11th, there is still during 2017 a feeling (courtesy of Pluto) of intensity in relationships, potentially some power struggles; and a need to draw boundaries around people who you feel are in some way coercive, or misusing power. 
Equally, it means that you have power yourself and must use it wisely, with good conscience and for a good outcome for all.  Don’t underestimate the sense of a rising destiny and a feeling that endings are possibly in the air.  Even though at the time it can be uncomfortable, phoenixes do rise from the ashes of the old and one is stronger for the experience. 

Neptune, until March 2017, and particularly this month, continues his work as he has in 2016 on enhancing the sensitivities of those born July 1st and 2nd.  Empathy, compassion, spirituality and creativity has all been underlined.  An ability to see the bigger more existential spiritual picture has been yours and continues to inspire.  Other cultures and travel has also had and will for the next few months, have a marked positive effect on your life.

Relationships are very powerful this month and although Mercury is retrograde until 8th, you will find that after that date communications with others slot into place. 

After the 3rd, for all born up to July 20th, there is great harmony in the air and indeed travel augers well for increasing happiness.  

 Before the 28th, Mars in Pisces will directly positively impact all born after July 1st, again travel, long distance issues and study can all be a source of inspiration and there is tremendous dynamic sensitivity at work that makes you achieve well. 

However after the 28th, if born June 22nd to 24th, there needs to be some awareness that there is some irritability and impatience in the air from you to others and vice versa.  Keep calm. 
If born around the July 15th the full Moon on the 12th may be quite a wake up call to a few issues that you need to face, with endings of eras a possibility. 


Leos are fortunate enough to have Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus all very much in supportive mode this month; and indeed for much for the year. 

This month, those born around August 13th are inspired by Uranus to be awakened and enlightened to new possibilities, not least by pushing out the boundaries geographically.  A new grasping of excitement is in the air and simultaneously those born August 13th to 18th also have a sense of constructive pragmatism to help them carry out the sense of bringing the new to bear, in a sensible and grounded manner.  Realism is a focus. 

Also, those born August 13th to 17th are blessed this month by Jupiter’s support giving wisdom, good judgement and encouragement on a positive optimistic level, but much of the year is very productive for many of you. 

For this month however, many of you will be focussing on work issues, although with Mercury still retrograde until the 8th, there is a need to keep your eye on the ball and not to get too frustrated when things are blocked; and indeed between the 4th and the 8th, romantic issues need care in handling, as misunderstandings are potentially rife. 

Before the 3rd, however, if born after August 19th, your need for love and affection is strong and you will be able to give and receive.

After the 28th, if born July 23rd to 25th, there will be a new spark of determination, ambition and courageous drive to achieve what it is you need.  This can be very constructive. 


In 2016, Saturn was been an irritant for many born up to September 12th and in 2017 he will be a reminder of some reality checks for those born after September 14th.

Saturn is a karmic schoolteacher, a benevolent despot and the hard work and the practicalities and the maturity, which we need to face under his influence, is always in our favour in the long term.

Saturn will continue to affect all born September 1st to 5th for the coming few months in a way that indicates one needs to be very aware of not over-idealising people, searching for the fairy tale and not seeing through rose tinted spectacles and ensuring that one checks the validity of others out and generally keep it real.
Thereafter for the rest of the year, all those born between September 4th and 8th  need to bear that  in mind.

Pluto will also continue for much of the year to impact positively those born September 8th to 11th.  This will be empowering creatively, in love life and in fertility issues.  A new sense of strength, determination and purpose is born. 

Meanwhile this month Saturn will be directly affecting those born September 14th to 18th  This is a time of some blocks, restrictions, and tiredness.  You need to look after your health, pace yourself, but you need to be very pragmatic, hard working and disciplined; and know that it will pay off.  Before the 8th, the restrictions with your ruler Mercury, being retrograde, will be obvious in domestic circumstances and possibly in love life. 

After the 3rd, all born up to September 17th have the blessing of Venus in your opposite sign.  Love and affection is in the air, and happiness from others is infectious. 

Before the 28th,  all born after September 1st also have Mars in their 7th house, which could suggest that passions are strong, others are assertive and so are you; and there could be some rather subtle clashes, but it can also be a time of much cooperation with mutual effort.  Ensure that the power of Mars is constructive. 

With Jupiter’s opposition to your Uranus this month, it is also possible that many of you will be seeking, with great determination, a breakthrough in finances, possibly with a hint of risk in the mix.


Jupiter remains in Libra until about October 11th 2017. 

For all born after October 5th will have up until October this year, Jupiter very much affecting them very positively at certain points in the year. 

This month, those benefiting from this every twelve years conjunction, with be those born October 13th to 17th.  For this group, this is a buoyant month with luck, growth, travel, optimism and success; and a sense of well being. And because Saturn is also sextiling the Suns of exactly the same group, it would suggest that along with the growth and the positivity, is constructive hard work that is extremely rewarding and long lasting.  There is a very grown up, but a very happy feeling about the month. 

Uranus stays with those born October 12th to 15th and indeed he will be affecting you as such, on and off until March.  By that point he will have been with you for a year; and this has been rather disruptive and continues this month in terms of other people being unpredictable. Whatever changes are in the air re relationships, they are ultimately a catalyst for growth and a leap into a more positive future, but it can feel insecure, uncertain and unsafe at the time, but new and exciting people can come into your life, but they may not be permanent; just simply catalysts

Pluto also continues this year more or less for the whole year, to square the Suns of those born October 9th to 12th.  This group are familiar with this energy by now and it does suggest a need to liberate you with a bit of an internal power struggle away from the old and into the new.   Ending of chapters are in the ether, but transformational empowerment follows.  Just be conscious that your motive needs to be for he greater good and is pure and not just about power over others.  Internal and external change is being undertaken. 

Mercury retrograde, moving direct on the 8th, can bring some frustrations to your sign domestically or connected to offspring, notably between the 4th and the 8th.  Take time out to stop and think, rather than get frustrated. 

Before the 3rd, if born after 18th, use that window to enjoy social life, love life and creative success. 

After the 28th, that very small period may be challenging those born after September 22nd until 26th and the energy will be quite contentious from other people.  Relationships will not be a walk in the park.  You need to be careful that you do not invite assertively from others, but you will certainly have to stand your ground over certain issues if justified.  The power of others’ will, is quite strong. 

However, for many of you, specifically born in mid-October, there will be a great desire for some excitement and adventure and need for a bit of risk and the new.  That’s fine.  Enjoy, but don’t lose caution. 


Neptune, having spent a full year enhancing the 9th to 11th degree of Pisces, and therefore benefiting those born November 2nd to 5th, now spends his last few months, including January, finishing his job for this group.  Although he will nudge you again in the last few months of 2017, but his main work will be done by March, which means simply that you have experienced, over the last year, continuing in the first two months strongly this year, of a greater feeling of empathy, sensitively a down-grading of the ego, compassion and an appreciation of the arts and spiritual values.  It is a particularly positive for those who are involved in aesthetics and has brought great joy and special connection on a heart level with offspring or grandchildren.  Being near the ocean would be/is beneficial. 

Pluto will continue this year, as he did last year, to empower and bring a sense of destiny to all born November 7th to 10th and that will be very true in January as well.  He has brought, and continues to bring, an incisively forensic understanding in your conscious mind with an almost x-ray vision into truth. Your power to affect people through your communications and influences is considerable and your powers to get to the truth of anything should not be underestimated. 

Jupiter remains in Libra all this year until around the 10th October, when he enters your sign, which will mean that you will all then have a year of benefiting from the bonuses of Jupiter, but up to that point there is a quiet behind the scenes psychological preparation going for a new, more progressive chapter, starting in October for many of you. 

This month you are on form intellectually, with good communication skills particularly, but because Mercury is retrograde, it is vital that you ensure that you don’t assume that all communications have got through successfully, that you double check detail, where the devil resides and that you also, particularly, between the 4th and 8th, make sure that all financial dealings are completely clear and understood. 

From 3rd, all born up to November 19th, will be feeling very much in tune with their love life, their affections, with children’s’ issues and also creatively very fertile. 

And also, up to the 28th, all born after November 8th, have Mars also from Pisces, creating a great creative push, drive and a hunger for fun, enjoyment and passions are strong; and there will be a need to live life to the full and enjoy; and romantic interests will be pursued in a constructive and successful way.


Saturn remains in your sign until late December of 2017.  He has been in your sign since September 2015, so many of you have already experienced the maturing effects of Saturn. 

However, for those born after December 12th, there will be some Saturn learning curves still to come, but remember Saturn is your friend in disguise as a karmic school teacher and benevolent despot; and whatever hard work you do and step up to the plate during Saturn, serves you very well in the future and you’re glad you rose to the challenge. 

This month Saturn will be directly conjuncting the Suns of those born December 12th to 17th.  For this group there is a need to look after the health, respect the vessel in which you live.  It will be a time of challenge, hard work, like climbing a mountain, possibly austerity, patience and maturity.  Pace yourself and deal with the necessary.  Delays and restrictions are there so as to re-think strategy and to check whether you are actually knocking on the right door.  If you are, hard work and patience seriously pays off.  Saturn is a reality check that we all periodically, often have.

However, the very good news is that Jupiter, in harmony with your sign from Libra, continues to be in that sign until October 10th, so therefore many of your have him on your side this year.  In fact, all born from December 4th onwards, will be benefiting periodically from his protection.  This month, those born December 12th to 17th are benefiting from him, which will act as a really good protection from some other more stringent demands of Saturn. 

Jupiter brings growth, potential for change in a positive way, optimism, some confidence and luck; and the ability to fulfil some of one’s wishes; and when combined with Saturn, he creates a hard-working sense of success with immediate rewards from the work. 

Uranus is also in positive mode now for all born December 11th to 14th, as those three planets (Uranus Jupiter and Saturn) are currently all very connected to each other. 
By the end of February, Uranus will have done his work aimed at this group and this is the last chapter; and is basically about showing you the opportunities to take a leap into a new future and to follow your own intuitions and to appreciate the need and validity of change and awakening to new concepts, new thoughts, new understandings. The power of offspring and creativity to bring change into one’s life has been significant and continues this month and next. 

Mercury is retrograde and  in your sign between the 4th and the 8th, so that will be a time when many of you will need to be extraordinarily careful about ensuring that you clarify everything as much as possible, but delays and blocks are part of the picture for a reason, so as to make you re-think.  After the 8th, things will straighten out. 

Finances before the 3rd are looking good for those born after December 18th, but after the 3rd, for all born up to December 20th, there will be a need to be wary of over-expansion or over spending on home and family and but good times can certainly be in the air.  Just a danger of some excess. 

Mars also in your Solar 4th house until the 28th suggests that for all born after December 1st, there is the potential for irritation and a bull in a china shop sort of mood going on in the domestic area and family.  Either you or others are in this mode and certainly any issues that have been simmering may well erupt.  It is a time to be not impatient and to curb irritation; and possibly to have tolerance. 

However, after the 28th, all born November 23rd and 24th will find that their ability to be constructive, determined, practical and ambitious will serve them well.  It also gives a boost to romantic life and creative abilities. 


Pluto remains in Capricorn until 2025 and he has been slowly working his way through your sign since about 2008.  He is now in the second half of his journey and so will affecting all in this coming year born January 6th to 11th inclusive.  This should therefore be quite a ground-breaking time for this group, although those born at the beginning of these said dates will have already sensed some of the influences which are very empowering and fated in the sense that the changes and the intensity of experiences are meant to be for a purpose and are transformational.  The influence of power, your own and others, will be significant and therefore it is very important that one is incredibly conscious of best use of power and with good motive.  This is an evolutionary journey of the soul and happens once every 248 years, so clearly not everybody has a conjunction of Pluto to their Sun in their lifetime.  One grows enormously through the experience. 

Uranus too is affecting many born in Capricorn by square, notably in 2017 if born January 10th to 18th.  This month those affected are born January 10th to 12th.  When Uranus is squaring one’s Sun there is an ultimate restlessness, a desire for change, a feeling of uncertainty, a feeling of unsure ness; and although many people in the world are feeling that, it is particularly powerful for many Capricorns.  Things are not as they were and one cannot second-guess.  It is important to be flexible and go with the flow and one cannot be too controlling, but equally one needs to be sure that one doesn’t rush into change for its own sake.  Domestic change is a possibility as Uranus is in your solar 4th house, but adrenalin is strong, as is the need for it on some levels.  It is important to look after the nervous system. 

Neptune too is affecting Capricorns, but in a very positive way and will continue to affect all born December 30th to January 6th in 2017.  This month it is most directed at those born end of December, early January.  The influence of this Neptune transit happens once every 80 odd years is one of a softening, or a reduction of ego, of a need to encompass the heart in what you feel and what you do.  The thinking becomes more emotional and sensitive and a more spiritual creative side needs expression and acknowledgement. 

Jupiter this month, in Libra now and right up to October 10th 2017, is currently affecting those born January 11th to 14th.  This is not a difficult transit, just implies a need to be careful that you don’t overdo or over-expect, or show any sort of arrogance or over-confidence, particularly in one’s career.  Do not push past the point of success and show humility. 

January is a month, which can emphasise your own individuality and strength of personality quite strongly being your birthday period.  Be aware that with Mercury retrograde, until the 8th and in your sign until the 4th, can bring a need to double check facts and a realisation that there will be some blocks and restrictions, some hiccups, to do possibly with technology, travel and possibly misunderstandings.  Things straighten out after the 12th

After the 3rd, all born up to January 17th will enjoy a resurgence of harmony in their thinking.  Charm and affections are in the air and highlighted and indeed up until the 28th all born after December 31st will have a forcefulness and a determination in a very constructive way in their thinking and in their actions which brings success; and there is a confidence and ambition that is manifested in wise thought, action and speech. 


Your ruler Uranus remains in Aries, a compatible sign to your own, until May 2018 and has been in that sign since early 2011; and this year he will be going a long way towards liberating your true soul if born February 9th to 17th.  Your consciousness and awareness is growing, there is an awakening, an ability to look outside the box, an ability to be much more intuitive and inventive in your insight, understanding and expression of self.  You are much more true to your true Aquarian soul; and this month, this is particularly true for those born February 8th to 11th.  Your intuition needs respecting .

Jupiter also is in harmony from Libra to your sign until October 10th.  This brings opportunities for all of you born after February 1st, to experience this year, the possibility of growing academically, in wisdom and through travel.  There is luck, there is support, and there is confidence.  International issues can affect your life in a very positive way and higher learning and a metaphysical wisdom is growing.  This month those particularly affected positively by this influence are those born February 9th to 14th

Even Saturn is in harmony with your sign by Sextile, particularly affecting all those born after February 9th throughout 2017; and this month those most benefiting are born February 9th to 14th, so constructive wisdom, hard work, responsible obligations, practical help for others and patience, discipline and maturity are all yours.  So for this group, having the Jupiter benefit too, this can be a very positive and progressive January. 

Venus is in your sign before the 3rd and for those born after 15th February there is a small window of opportunity on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd to really enjoy extra charisma, extra charm, extra attractiveness and an extra dose of love and affection. 

After the 3rd, and indeed up to the 28th many of you will be putting a lot of focus, ambition and determination into issues connected to personal security and finance.  Rightly so. 

After the 28th, if born up to January 23rd, i.e. early Aquarians, there will be the beginning of a period of real assertiveness, ambition and focus that is very constructive in communications and in your thoughts. 

Mercury being retrograde is not directly affecting your sign too much, but nevertheless before the 8th there is still a need to be patient with delays and to review things that are not happening as quickly as you would like. 

Now currently in the ether over this and last month, Jupiter is opposing your ruling planet of Uranus which has been bringing a real stimulus to many of you to go for something that is more revolutionary and different in life; and to search for a little bit of excitement and belief in your own freer, unique path.
If born round January 28th, the new Moon on the 27th/28th, may presage a sense of successful initiative and the sense of a new chapter.


Neptune remains in your sign for this year; and indeed does not leave it until 2025; and has been there since around 2012, so this very long transit of Neptune in your sign is significant globally, but your for own sign of course, it is particularly strong as its visitation only happens in Pisces every 165 years; and this year all born March 1st to 6th are going to be graced with the power of Neptune.

On one level this is very positive, because it inspires, it spiritualises, it increases creativity in the visual sense and it can also bring the ultimate in empathy and sensitively to others, which can be quite painful when you are already a sensitive soul, but negatively it can also bring evasion, elusion, deception from self, with a tendency towards escapist behaviour, which can be negative.  It is a question of using the sensitivity and not being used by it, so beware; and this month those affected are born February 27th to March 1st, although this has been happening to you throughout 2016, so you are no stranger to this, but just be aware of its power.

Pluto is in positive mode to the Suns’ now of those born March 6th to 9th.  This has been hinted at throughout 2016 and indeed throughout 2017 all born March 6th to 11th will be influenced by this powerful Pluto transit.  It brings greater courage and energy and drive and power than many of you will have dared to have experience before.  It gives intelligence, leaderships skills, the ability to change situations and people and groups for the better and people around you will be powerful personalities who will be constructive in helping you on your life’s path.  Intelligent power and insight and transformational abilities are more powerfully yours, possibly as never before in your life. 

Venus moves into your sign on the 3rd and Mars is in your sign all month until the 28th, all of you will be the receivers of either extra charm, sensitivity, creativity and with a more benign and loving nature even than usual and a very great aesthetic awareness and ability, particularly in music and the arts; and all of you born after February 28th will also find yourself being more assertive, ambitious, determined and confident.  You just need a little care that you don’t become a little over-assertive at times, but with care, this can be an empowering and positive month.

Although Mercury is retrograde until the 8th, during which time we will all need to be a little aware of some hiccups and delays; and a need to be very careful about communications, but after the 8th he goes direct, then the principal of forward movement is restored especially for your sign, after the 12th
