Position 1: Your Sunset Card

Lessons from the previous year

This first card in the spread looks at what you’ve accomplished (or not) in the past year. For this card, focus on the past — but with an eye toward using that energy for the future. There is always something to be learned from the past, and it shapes who you are, so let this card take you back for a moment before we move forward.

Position 2: Your Horizon Card

What you can expect in the next year

What do you want to achieve in the next year? What are your biggest hopes and aspirations? Choose your second card, and focus your mind on what you’d like to see happen in your life — whether that’s finding a new relationship, tackling a new career goal, or even just spending more time relaxing. Search inside yourself to determine your highest purpose for the year.

Position 3: Your Obstacle Card

A challenge you’ll face this year

Let’s face it — everything worth having comes with challenges. The important thing is to face them with thoughtfulness and poise. This third Tarot card will give you a glimpse at the type of challenge you may encounter as you strive to achieve the objective you set with the Horizon card.

Position 4: Your Strength Card

How to harness your inner power

Now that you’ve seen your challenges, how are you going to resolve any issues that arise? Let the Tarot cards reveal that in this fourth position. What inner talents and strengths do you possess that can help you? What untapped energies exist that you can use this year? Let this Tarot card guide you and free you from doubt as you find the confidence to succeed.

Position 5: Your Advice Card

Lessons you learned last year

Now that you’ve looked back and determined where you want to go in the future, take a second to examine what you have learned so far. This lesson, whatever it is, will inform your next steps. What is this Tarot card telling you to do now? What happened last year that you want to avoid this year or what happened that you want to repeat? Ask yourself these types of questions as you look at the Tarot card to help yourself understand the lesson it’s trying to impart.

Position 6: Your Navigation Card

Guidance for the year ahead

This is the card you have been waiting for. Look at the Tarot card and ask, “What do I feel right now is the very best action for me to take?” The card’s character should help you focus your mind and your energy. You might want to write down your thoughts, or compile a list of the next steps you want to take on your journey. It’s hard sometimes to see how to reach large milestones, but life is full of small moments that we can use to our best advantage — if we take the time to plan and prepare ourselves now.

Position 7: Your Clarity Card

Your personal theme for the year

Even though you have examined the lessons of the past, chosen your aim, and even looked at how to reach it, you may still need to find clarity. In this case, maybe focus on the big picture — how does all of this fit into your overall life plan? What type of person are you hoping to become? What does this mean for your higher purpose? Use that energy to set your intention for the year to come, and tell yourself exactly what that is, say it out loud and imprint it in your heart and mind.

There you have it! A quick 7-card Tarot spread that will allow you to determine your heart’s desire and achieve your highest goals for the upcoming year.

Your Daily Tarot Card for Monday, Jan. 2nd is The Emperor

Your Personal Daily Tarot Card

The Emperor

The Emperor is blessed with the skills to successfully lead others. He can turn chaos into order and provide structure to that which is unbound. He is quick of mind and confident in his power and right to rule, and does so in a just manner. Although stern by nature, he truly is the ultimate father figure. He will provide as needed, teach those with unanswered questions, protect the vulnerable, set and maintain boundaries. His perfect world runs on schedule and is free of any disturbances. What the Emperor must be wary of is setting boundaries and rules where none are needed. If he isn’t careful not to over use his powers he may well become a tyrant.

Monthly Tarot Card Forecast: January 2017

Monthly Tarot Card Forecast: January 2017

Balancing your inner and outer worlds

Hi I’m Brigit, founder of Biddy Tarot. I’m here today to share with you the Monthly Tarot Forecast for January 2017. So we’re going to have a look at our Blessings, our Challenges, and our Recommended Actions to make this the best month ever. Let’s get straight into it!

Blessings card: Queen of Wands

So the first card I have is the Queen of Wands, so this is your Blessing for January. I love the Queen of Wands. She is confident, outgoing, friendly and warm. She’s the type that you’d like to meet at a party, because she’d always make you feel welcome. And she is often quite the life of the party as well. So your Blessing this month is that you have this beautiful confidence within yourself. It’s not like a cocky confidence or anything like that, this is just a beautiful, warm glow that you exude when you’re interacting with others. So expect lots of socializing, and a lot of just feeling great about putting yourself out there.






Challenges card: The High Priestess reversed

Alright, so what are our Challenges for this coming month? We have The High Priestess reversed. I find that The High Priestess reversed can sometimes be about neglecting our inner selves. It’s really interesting when you put this against the Queen of Wands, because when you’re so busy putting yourself out there and really giving yourself to other people, sometimes you can forget about what’s really going on within you. So, these two cards are really asking you to balance the self that you’re presenting to others, which is super bubbly and confident and sparkly, versus the self that you have within you.

You might just find that in January you just need to have that little bit extra effort to nurture your intuitive self and your real, authentic self a little bit more. So whether it’s just taking some time out from your busy social schedule and perhaps even journaling, playing with your Tarot cards, or just connecting with yourself and your intuition, that might be all that you need so that you can reconnect with this High Priestess energy.



Recommended Action card: Six of Cups reversed

Alright so our third card for this month is the action that you can take, and here we have the Six of Cups reversed. Now, the reversal of this card shows that this energy is being brought within you. The Six of Cups is kind of a really nice, playful card. So, when I’m looking at this partnered with The High Priestess reversed, what I’m sensing is that you need to spend a little bit more time with yourself, just having fun, doing fun things. Maybe it’s some art hobbies, crocheting, knitting; maybe even just playing with your kids, or experiencing your life as if you were a kid.






Overall messages

So there you have it! That is the Monthly Tarot Card Forecast for January. We’re looking at lots and lots of socializing and putting yourself out there, but also remembering to honor your inner self, and make time to connect with your intuition — of course Tarot cards will always help with that. And then, finally, make sure you keep accessing your inner child, you remember to have fun, you remember to play, and it might just be that playfulness in your own personal time or your own private space.

Astrology-Inspired New Year Resolutions

Astrology-Inspired New Year Resolutions

Keep your New Year resolutions with help from the cosmos

It’s that time of year again, when we all promise to correct our bad habits and become perfect people. BUT, as we all know, New Year resolutions are made to be broken! That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t make them, though.

Whether we stick to them is not always the point. It’s more about adjusting our focus each year to gain greater awareness. Little by little, that awareness can help us clean up our mucky areas and get closer to living the lives we desire.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

If one of your resolutions last year was to finish projects that are still sitting on your shelf, it’s time to box them up and make room for a brand new endeavor. Here’s the resolution you will need to make it a success: I won’t start a new project until I finish the one I’m working on.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Your fixed energy makes you great at follow through, but it can also keep you stuck in bad habits. Resolve to tackle a few of your worst ones this year. If you are true to your resolutions for just three months, you will be well on your way to breaking even the most stubborn habit.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Your whirlwind life can be a lot of fun — and it certainly isn’t boring — but it might serve you well to slow down this coming year. Even though patience isn’t your strong suit, try adding a dash of it here and there. It will help you make progress in areas where your bouncy energy has actually been holding you back.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You love your routines and your security, but it’s time to get out of your comfort zone and try something new. Resolve to reach out into unknown territory and see what you find this year. If it feels scary, remember that you’re just coming up on an edge where you need to stretch.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22)

Have you used your irresistible charms to capture emotional prisoners this past year? If you’re a player — and you know who you are — resolve to be more devoted this year. Open up that big heart of yours and take your relationships to a deeper level.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sept. 22)

Nag, nag, nag … the only time you stop is when you’re nitpicking. Okay, that’s a huge exaggeration … but chances are you’ve gotten on someone’s case a little too often this past year. Resolve to lighten up this year and let others take care of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.

Libra (Sept. 23 – Oct. 22)

As hard as you try, you can’t have it both ways. Promise yourself you will make firmer decisions this coming year. You can still weigh all of your alternatives, but when it comes down to the line, make up your mind and stick to it. Your friends and colleagues will breathe a sigh of relief.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21)

Keeping secrets adds to your mysterious allure, but there’s a limit. If you’re using your power to manipulate others, that’s where it needs to end. Resolve to be more transparent with those close to you this year. Let them in on your deepest secrets and enjoy the fruits of greater intimacy.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21)

You’re good at thinking big and you shouldn’t change that this year … but you might want to put more time into developing strategies that will help you reach your lofty goals. Remember — a goal without a plan is just a dream — so make this the year you follow through.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19)

Here’s your mantra-resolution: It’s not all about money. Keep pursuing the almighty dollar if you like, but also take time to smell the roses that line your path to success. Your friends and family need you. Resolve to be more generous with your time and attention.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18)

Even though we all love your quirkiness, it wouldn’t hurt to develop a bit more tolerance for the traditional. As it’s the flip side of where you usually put your energy, it may feel uncomfortable. But you shine when it comes to breaking the mold, so surprise everyone (again!) with a side of you they’ve never seen.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20)

This is the year to put your compassion to better use. Resolve to find a project where you can help others in need. Your understanding and supportive nature is a gift you need to give on a regular basis. Reach out and extend it beyond your friends and family.


Get A Jump on Tomorrow, Your Horoscopes for Tuesday, January 3rd

Get A Jump on Tomorrow….

Your Horoscopes for Tuesday, January 3rd



Aries Horoscope

Venus is now in your soul sector, dear Aries, and will visit there until February 3rd. This cycle brings a little more mystery to your love life and your affections. You need time to get in better touch with your feelings during this period of your life, which can be complicated. Alternatively, relationships can be a little complex. There can be a greater love of private moments, and some of you will be enjoying a certain measure of solitude or benefits and help coming from behind the scenes. There may be significant private moments with a partner, or circumstances are such that you need to keep things quiet or give of yourself, making sacrifices for those you love. Some of you could be taking a break from romance. There is every reason to take your time during this cycle when it comes to matters of the heart and decisions about love. This is also true of money! Today can have its generous share of feel-good moments. Mercury’s retrograde continues until the 8th, and you may want to be mindful of what and how you communicate. Otherwise, there is a subtle sense that you’re getting over a hump, and possibly understanding a career matter better as you’re reminded of something relevant from the past.


Taurus Horoscope

Venus moves into your friendship sector today, dear Taurus, where she will stay until February 3rd. This cycle brings good-natured energy and pleasing variety to your social life. It’s easier for you to attract friends and those who share common interests, and your manner is exceptionally approachable. You might gain a stronger sense of fulfillment through activities with and for others. If you need to make peace with someone, this is a good time to do so. It’s also strong for joining a group, working together with others in a team, socializing with associates, networking efforts, and setting long-ranging happiness goals. Today, you’re more inclined to see opportunities that you overlooked in the past. As well, there can be nice energy for personal appeal and friendships. Conversations about the past can be useful and may help clear the air.


GeminiVenus begins its month-long transit of your career and reputation sector today, dear Gemini. This cycle brings increased social and financial opportunities through your business or professional dealings, as well as more concern for the image you are projecting to others. You are coming across as helpful, charming, attractive, and kind. You are socially ambitious right now, and success may come through your good managerial qualities or some form of artistic talent. Making personal contact with people in positions of authority or with the public can enhance your career and reputation. Today, dig deep, research, and keep an open mind. Discoveries can be breakthrough. You may be in the position to mediate or counsel someone today. Although Mercury remains retrograde until the 8th, your communications are likely to come through quite well as people are responding to your gestures more than your words today.



Venus begins its transit of your solar ninth house today, dear Cancer, where it will stay until February 3rd. This cycle is strong for your powers of attraction and for bringing desired things to you. It also stimulates your desire for more variety and diversity in your life. Your tastes can be a little more exotic now, and your interests and attractions can stray quite a bit from your usual ones – you’re interested in new and different flavors! Sharing your personal philosophy with someone special can bring a relationship to a new level or might even attract a new one. Today, you are likely to enjoy chatting with others and exchanging ideas or talking through problems. Reminding yourself of past successes can help you to solve problems in the present.


Leo Glyph Symbol Horoscope

Venus enters the sign of Pisces today, where she will transit until February 3rd, dear Leo. This transit stimulates your urge to share in a harmonious manner with others, and on a more mundane level, can be beneficial for money shared or coming to you from other sources than direct personal income. You are beginning a cycle that favors working on the more complicated or intricate areas of relationships, sharing, and intimacy. Mars has been in this area of your chart since December 19th, and while Mars is excellent for pushing ahead and getting results, you may welcome the softer touch and kindness of Venus here now as well. Negotiations go more smoothly. With both of these influences, you are in a great position to bring more creativity and dynamism to your intimate life in the coming weeks, as well as to the handling of money.


Virgo Symbol Horoscope

Venus moves into the sign opposite yours and your partnership sector in your solar chart, dear Virgo, where she will stay until February 3rd. The month ahead is excellent for attracting and enhancing close relationships. This influence can bring pleasant people or social situations into your life. You are open to conciliate and compromise now, considering the other side of the coin before making decisions. Mars has been in this sector of your chart since December 19th, and while this has been a dynamic and active time, you can certainly use Venus’ softer touch in your relationships now. This is an especially good time for negotiations of all kinds, although you’re in a better position after the 8th. With Mercury retrograde until then, there can be some problems with being understood. Even so, you are working things in such a way that you’re coming out ahead today. Today can be most excellent for design and creative projects. You are assuaging tension in your relations quite successfully.



Venus begins its month-long transit of your work and health sector today, dear Libra. The month ahead is strong for bringing more harmony, enjoyment, and even aesthetic appeal to your daily life and working environment. Restoring balance to working relationships can be in focus, and perhaps some social opportunities through your work or your daily routines. Work and charm are tied to one another during this cycle, and this can mean attractions on the job for some, or improved social relations in the work environment. There may be some lack of discipline at times, however. It may not be the most productive of times in the year, but it serves a useful purpose, as the enjoyment of your work and routines is important. Today, your imagination takes you to inventive places, and you could have a great time thinking up new plans or procedures, especially those that make life easier and more progressive, in and around the home and with your business.


Scorpio Horoscope

Venus enters your creative and romantic sector today for a month-long stay, dear Scorpio. This is one of the best Venus transits of the year for natural charm, attraction, romance, and artistic expression. You are more playful and attractive, and you are received well by others, especially love interests. It’s also a good cycle for dabbling in the arts, entertainment, and pleasure-seeking activities. Venus in this sector of your chart can offer a nice release from pressures. Today can be good for interactions with a sibling or news you can truly use. If you’ve been doing editing or reviewing recently, as many of you have, you might begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Remember that you may be a little disconnected from your heart when you speak, and so can others. Otherwise, enjoy your more inspiring ideas and a sense of progress.


Sagittarius Horoscope

Venus enters your home and family sector today, dear Sagittarius, and will visit this house of your solar chart until February 3rd. During this cycle, great energy is with you for home and family matters. Your heart may be playing it safe with new people, however. Make a point of spending more leisure time with family or those near and dear. You might get an urge to dress up your living quarters in a more artistic or aesthetically pleasing way. Entertaining in the home can also be quite favorable during this cycle, and efforts to smooth over relations with family can be quite successful. Love might be found close to home. Today’s conversations or news could be a breakthrough of sorts as you come to new knowledge that sheds light on a past matter. Others tend to support your ideas and family can be especially appreciative. Even so, it’s important to be mindful of how and what you communicate now as retrograde Mercury is about to move into your sign.


Capricorn Horoscope

Today and until February 3rd, Venus is in favorable aspect to your Sun, dear Capricorn. This transit boosts your communication skills as well as your powers of persuasion. You seem to know what to say at just the right moment, although this may be more pronounced only after Mercury’s retrograde that lasts until January 8th. Love can be enhanced with good conversations, emails, texts, and letters. Others can be especially attracted to your ideas and style of communication. Instead of pushing for answers, Venus waits for them to come her way or asks for them nicely! During this cycle, you are especially curious about others and particularly interested in sharing your daily activities with a friend or lover. Today, you could find yourself on the same page as a friend. Keep in mind that some communications can be taken a little more seriously or literally, and not correctly. Even so, today is strong for feeling positive and hopeful as well as enjoying unusual ideas. Gestures may be far more meaningful than words right now.



Venus moves out of your sign today and into your values sector, dear Aquarius, where she will visit for one month. Affections stabilize during this cycle, and you especially appreciate simple pleasures. This is a stable position for love matters and close relationships or at least a period in which relationships tend to be status quo. You value those who make you feel comfortable. Money or gifts may come to you at this time, and money may be spent on comfort items and beautiful things. There can be surprise support or memory and intuition that boosts your business or money situation today. While ideas can be inspired, it’s better not to begin a brand new project today with Mercury still retrograde until the 8th, as it will likely get off to a slow start or it can be reconsidered later on. Even so, this si a good time for feeling positive and sharing valuable ideas. Let life inspire you today, be a little more mindful with communications and directions, and take note of new ideas.


PiscesThe Moon is in your sign again today, dear Pisces, and you’re in tune with your feelings. Today, Venus leaves your privacy sector and moves into your sign for a month-long stay. This puts the focus on pleasure and affection in your life. Your natural charm emerges for everyone to see during this cycle, and you are also clearer about your feelings and more expressive and open with your affections. Your demeanor is calmer, more harmonious, and attractive, although your affections may feel quite urgent. People notice you for your personality and unique traits. Your powers of attraction skyrocket, and with Mars already in Pisces, you can certainly attract attention! Today’s Mercury-Venus influence further promotes your interests and is good for connecting with others, but because Mercury remains retrograde until January 8th, it can be a little tricky in some areas mainly due to the possibility of speaking about matters of the heart without our hearts fully in the equation.


If Today is Your Birthday: January 2


If Today is Your Birthday: January 2


Extremely hard-working, you put your heart into whatever it is that you do, and you simply won’t skimp. While you don’t always aim high, simply because you are generally very busy working hard, you are likely to eventually get there! As a partner, you are very loyal, caring, and protective, and you value close partnerships greatly. You are extremely giving, and this is second nature to you. You are also a strong negotiator, able to perform a balancing act when necessary. Famous people born today: Isaac Asimov, Jack Hanna, Kate Bosworth, Christy Turlington, Tia Carrere.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

The Sun in a waxing sextile to the Moon in your Solar Return chart has a fortunate influence on your year ahead. You can be especially productive this year, as in many ways you are starting fresh, but you have a rather clear vision of what you want to accomplish. Your inner needs tend to be mirrored by external events, and vice versa, which helps to boost your confidence and happiness levels. You more readily accept that challenges are part of the natural cycle in life, which in turn helps you to meet them with confidence and to worry less. You are likely to be on top of your game this year for the most part, and positive connections with others can be made fairly easily. A comfortable level of personal popularity helps keep conflict to a minimum. With the ability to handle your emotions successfully, there will be less stress on both your mind and body.

Neptune continues to transit in harmony with your Sun this year. A higher purpose to your life is what you seek, and you rely more heavily upon your intuition in order to achieve it. You could find that your intuition is subtly enhanced and that you’re often in the right place at the right time, probably because your hunches are more likely to be correct. This aspect softens your disposition somewhat, as you tune into your imaginative and artistic side. This is a good year for self-improvement programs or efforts. The need to “get away from it all” — for some peace and quiet now and again — will be strong. A more sensitive, even mysterious, persona is projected this year, and this can attract pleasantly unusual circumstances (and people) into your life. You will want to reserve time alone, away from the hectic pace of life, for reflection and meditation.

Career and life path matters may seem to magically fall into place, taking you in a direction that fits.

There is charm in the way you present your ideas this year, helping to smooth over differences in your personal relationships. The period ahead favors dancing, swimming, photography, arts, and entertainment. If you are an artist, this could be an especially inspired, imaginative, and productive year. Pay attention to your gut feelings, which will, more often than not, give you valuable information. Business benefits from a more creative approach, but you should be especially careful that you aren’t missing important details. This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents. You can experience a stronger desire to seek out

The period ahead favors dancing, swimming, photography, arts, and entertainment. If you are an artist, this could be an especially inspired, imaginative, and productive year. Pay attention to your gut feelings, which will, more often than not, give you valuable information. Business benefits from a more creative approach, but you should be especially careful that you aren’t missing important details. This can be a year in which you are building faith and confidence in your personality, skills, and talents. You can experience a stronger desire to seek out meaning, wisdom, and mental stimulation in your life during this period. Others might frequently turn to you for guidance.

This can be a powerful year for friendships. You are especially concerned with being fair to one another in your relationships. You seek out balance and peace, and the platonic elements of a relationship may be emphasized now with great success. There can be a focus on sharing or blending beliefs, morals, and values; or there can be a strong focus on growing and improving through one another. This can also be a very creative, artistic time.

You are likely to establish connections and/or relationships with people that help forward your own personal growth. Teamwork and camaraderie, as well as meaningful connections, are themes. You feel your life has a definite purpose this year. Through your contacts with others, you are encouraged to grow.

Pleasing circumstances surrounding your love life, finances, and creative pursuits are in store this year. You are more generous, and others return the favor. You might receive financial backing or special gifts in the period ahead. You seek a little more from your love life and you are likely to receive it. Some of you could fall in love this year, or existing relationships are enhanced. Adventure-seeking is a theme.

This is a good year for design and balance in your creative life. You can feel energized and inspired creatively at this time, ready to fight for something you believe in. You find it easier to assert yourself and your desires.

You have a freer attitude towards expressing your affection this year. Your open heart is likely to attract easygoing friendships or love opportunities into your life. Relationships are mutually beneficial and naturally equal, fair, and balanced. Power dynamics are improved. There can be a stronger inclination towards togetherness and sharing.

Perceptions are more reliable than usual this year, and it’s an active period for self-development. You are more resourceful and might benefit from some great bargains, buys, and finds. You may be recycling ideas from your past and bringing new energy to your projects that increases their success. For some, long-lost friends or lovers can return or an existing relationship can transform and reach a new level.

The year ahead is one for discovering your creative side. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly. The period ahead is one of greater consideration for others, self-understanding, enterprise, and winning projects. You meet with people who inspire you to be your best. You have much energy to pour into your pursuits, although you can be a little moody when it comes to motivation for your projects – you need to feel inspired for the energy to flow well. Your ability to pace yourself leads to greater happiness and health.


2017 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to deal with practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

2018 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of exploration and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed; or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, mingle.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, January 2nd

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, January 2nd

By Rick Levine


General Horoscope

Returning to work or school might not be an easy adjustment today. The moody Moon’s shift into mystical Pisces at 4:57 am EST enchants us with thoughts that divert our attention to magical and mysterious realms. We may be dazed and confused by several of Luna’s stressful midday aspects and her subsequent conjunction with fuzzy Neptune. Meanwhile, a fateful connection between romantic Venus and wild Uranus can shock us with an unexpected detour.


Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

No matter how many responsibilities are piling up on your plate today, you’re not finished with your vacation yet. You can think of a hundred ways to avoid work or school while a cluster of planets in your 12th House of Escapism captivates your imagination and tempts you to run away from the real world. Nevertheless, the pressure is relentless and you can’t hide from your obligations forever. Luckily, nothing prevents you from continuing to dream as long as you keep up appearances. Jonathon Swift wrote, “Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others.”


Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

You’re normally a champion when it comes to finishing what you start because your methodical progress is a proven winner. However, staying on track is more challenging now because your imagination can easily send you on a wild goose chase. It’s no easy task to remain focused on your job while you’re busy worrying about the distant future. Nevertheless, you can increase your efficiency by gently bringing your thoughts back to the present moment each time you catch your mind wandering. Concentrating on your work today helps you forget everything else.


Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

Your high hopes for professional recognition could lead to major discouragement if your goals are not grounded in a strong foundation. A gathering of dreamy Pisces planets in your 10th House of Public Status prompts you to reevaluate your role at work. Unfortunately, there might be so many scenarios playing out in your mind that you grow unsure of your intentions. You don’t have time to waste floundering about now, so make a decision and stick to it. Remember the proverb, “If you chase two rabbits, you will not catch either one.”


Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

You’re like Don Quixote who is lost in fantasy, imagining that he’s on a knightly adventure. Mundane events take on mythic proportions, making it nearly impossible to separate your dreams from reality. Fortunately, you can grow into your visions over time, but only if you are unwavering in your search for the facts. Don’t deviate from what you know to be true. And if you doubt your objectivity, rely on the perceptions of those you trust until your clarity returns. Computer scientist Linus Torvalds said, “That which works, works.”


Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

You’re sometimes overly concerned with appearances, yet you also understand there is a magical relationship between a book and its cover. Several planets are now conspiring in your 8th House of Deep Sharing, enticing you to examine the hidden core of your assumptions. You’re not interested in putting on a show for the sake of applause today. You crave to establish a solid connection with your strongest passions and might wonder if your partner feels the same intensity. Henri Nouwen wrote, “If fear is the great enemy of intimacy, then love is its true friend.”


Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

You are wandering in the Cosmic Hall of Mirrors today and everything you see on the outside is but another reflection of you. Unfortunately, every mirror has a slightly different warp and therefore distorts you in a unique manner. Don’t fall into the trap of believing what you perceive. Once you understand that everything in your environment is strangely already inside your head, you can boldly create a new relationship with the world around you. The ancient Emerald Tablet reveals, “As above, so below. As within, so without.”


Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

You’re ready to take care of business today but you might not be able to get back into your old groove so easily. It’s nearly impossible to set a schedule and stick to it while several planets float around surreal Neptune in your 6th House of Logistics. You need plenty of wiggle room now, and the wider your current perspective, the better it will be in the long run. Avoid closing down your analytical process prematurely because there’s not as much of an urgency as you may think. Slow down and deal with the details before you miss something important in your haste.


Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

Although you long to be seen and appreciated today, you want to control which aspects of your life are expressed and which are kept secret. You understand Shakespeare’s famous line, “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.” Nevertheless, there are many possible ways to act your part and you don’t know which one makes the most sense. You can easily be swallowed up by any character you choose now, so consider your options before picking one. Maturity starts when drama ends.


Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

Your life is not always as much fun as everyone expects it to be from the outside view. Oddly enough, instead of trying to extend the holiday festivities, you’re actually eager to pull back into your shell for a while to reconnect with your roots. Although it would be less complicated to just capitulate to someone else’s demands, it may be necessary to politely blow off a social event if you need some quiet time. Paulo Coelho wrote, “When you say yes to others, make sure you are not saying no to yourself.”


Capricorn Horoscope DEC 22 – JAN 19

Returning to the daily grind usually means adhering to a tight schedule for you goal-orientated Goats. Nevertheless, you might not be able to wrap your head around everything that must be done today. It seems as if you can’t even make a simple phone call without jeopardizing the plans for the rest of your day. Paradoxically, the most radical approach is the most stable one. As Queen sang, “Tear it up, Stir it up, Make it up — as you go along.”


Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

You may be worried that the window of opportunity is closing too soon, but your sense of immediacy is probably based on a false assumption. Don’t waste valuable time lost in regret. Instead, concentrate on the present to make sure your current actions are consistent with your beliefs. Self-esteem is a key ingredient to your success, so steer clear of any behavior that feeds your doubts now. Even if your future is clouded in a fog of uncertainty, keep your eyes locked on the horizon ahead. When clarity returns, you’ll be ready to quickly shift back into high gear.


Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

You are what you think. It’s as if your body and mind are so hypersensitive that they magically conform to your strongest thoughts. Although this metaphysical practice is the basis for many traditions, your intuition is so powerful today that there’s no discernible difference between your dreams and your future. This surrealism makes for sketchy reasoning but fosters uninhibited insight. As poet William Blake wrote, “What is now proved was once only imagined.”

    • General

      General Horoscope

      The New Year begins with the sweetest romantic prospects. Venus moves into dreamy Pisces on January 3, encouraging unconditional love, forgiveness, and compassion to flow in all of your relationships.

    • Aries

      Aries Horoscope MAR 21 – APR 19

      Starting this Tuesday and until February 3, it’s likely that you and your sweetheart will crave extra privacy. You might feel as if your relationship needs some extra TLC and that the only way to offer it is by shutting out the rest of the world as much as possible. It’ll be a great time to revisit a conversation about the security of your relationship. If one of you has felt that the other hasn’t been supporting his or her dreams, then that will also require a conversation. You’ll each set the record straight.

    • Taurus

      Taurus Horoscope APR 20 – MAY 20

      You and your sweetie will enjoy spending more time with friends. This will be an ideal week to arrange for a couples-only event such as a dinner party or other gathering.

If single, ask a friend to set you up on a date with someone. You won’t be disappointed in the matchmaking.

    • Gemini

      Gemini Horoscope MAY 21 – JUN 20

    • Cancer

      Cancer Horoscope JUN 21 – JUL 22

      Travel plans in the New Year with your partner will be delightful. The two of you might decide to visit a locale that you both went to in the past together, and if so, you’ll have an even better time now. Another possibility is that you are both re-evaluating your spirituality and how that impacts your relationship. Don’t be afraid to question values or beliefs that no longer seem to fit the person you have become. Most likely, your partner feels the exact same way.

    • Leo

      Leo Horoscope JUL 23 – AUG 22

      Shared financial goals between you and your partner will be revised successfully this week. If the two of you have an opportunity to meet with your financial advisor or accountant, you should take advantage of it.

Another possibility is that one of you will have a change in health insurance benefits or retirement benefits. Again; it’ll be beneficial to both of you.

    • Virgo

      Virgo Horoscope AUG 23 – SEP 22

      Love and relationship will be the happiest part of January for you. On January 3 Venus will move into your partnership sector, where she’ll remain until February 3. As a result, you and your mate will enjoy an extra special phase of harmony and support. You’ll choose to see the good in each other rather than get caught up in any of the flaws. If you’re dating someone, this may be a time of commitment. You may decide to move in together, become engaged, or even marry.

    • Libra

      Libra Horoscope SEP 23 – OCT 22

      If you’re single as 2017 begins, it’s quite possible that an office romance will open up for you. If this happens, it’ll start to unfold after January 3 and through February 3. During that time love planet Venus will tour your 6th House of Work and Health, making these the most likely areas in your life where you’ll feel the love. Of course, this might also mean that you’ll meet someone special at the gym or while waiting to visit a doctor or other health care provider. Be open!

    • Scorpio

      Scorpio Horoscope OCT 23 – NOV 21

      Love is in the air! This Tuesday you can expect the most glorious potential for true romance. Venus will move into your 5th House of Love and Pleasure, and remains here until February 3. If you’re single this is one of the most auspicious cycles to meet someone new and fall-head-over-heels in love. You can count on plenty of laughs with whomever you begin dating, but you’ll also feel an immediate spiritual connection. This could be your soul mate.

    • Sagittarius

      Sagittarius Horoscope NOV 22 – DEC 21

      If you are thinking about moving in with your sweetheart as the New Year begins, this is the time to start making it happen.

    • Aquarius

      Aquarius Horoscope JAN 20 – FEB 18

      You might feel more comfortable talking to your sweetheart about finances after Tuesday. If you are newly dating someone, this might be the week where you begin discussing topics around what each of you earns salary wise as well as what (if any) possessions either of you owns. Although this is a conversation usually reserved for serious relationships, even if you’ve recently met this person it appears that the subject will come up. Don’t worry; conversations will be smooth.

  • Pisces

    Pisces Horoscope FEB 19 – MAR 20

    You’ll be in a perfect place to enjoy more romance and pleasure in your life this week. On Tuesday Venus moves into Pisces, and remains here until February 3. As a result, you’ll feel extra confidence as you notice that others are more drawn to you than usual. Expect the magnetism and allure to help you charm anyone you have your eye on now.

2017 Year of the Rooster Love Horoscopes

2017 Year of the Rooster Love Horoscopes

Strut your stuff in this confident year

The Year of the Red Fire Rooster will be romantically auspicious for some, but not for others. Either way, every Chinese sign can expect the intense and exciting energy of 2017 to rock their love lives in one way or another. See what this vibrant time has in store for your sign:

Rat Love Horoscope

The anxious Rat might feel lonely during the flamboyant Year of the Red Fire Rooster. Instead of worrying about not measuring up, it’s important for this sign to go out and socialize. Making the round at parties is the best way to attract love this year. Rats who are involved in serious relationships should not neglect their loved ones. Although career prospects will be strong, they must not be a distraction from home and hearth. Those who make quality time for their partners could be rewarded with a baby.

Ox Love Horoscope

This sign’s sensual nature will get an enthusiastic response this year. Those who are looking for love should take a class. Learning how to cook, garden, make jewelry, or build furniture will put Oxen in contact with interesting people who excite their imagination. Members of this sign who are already in committed partnerships may be prone to jealousy. The best way to combat envy is to become an ideal partner. If the Ox wines and dines the object of their affection, they’ll have nothing to fear in the ardent Year of the Red Rooster.

Tiger Love Horoscope

The passionate Tiger might be romantically restless during the Red Fire Rooster Year. Although lots of admirers will approach this sign, it’s unlikely they’ll return the interest. Forming platonic relationships could be the best course of action for the Tiger. Friendships can turn to love affairs for this sign, thanks to the loyal energy cultivated by Rooster years. For those Tigers who already have partners, it’s important to develop new interests together to keep the spark alive. Resting on their laurels could create disaster for Tigers this year.

Rabbit Love Horoscope

The Year of the Red Fire Rooster can bring out the Rabbit’s condescending side. That’s why it may be difficult for this sign to find love in 2017. Nobody could measure up to this sign’s expectations. For those Rabbits who are already attached, it’s important to move out of the past and stay in the moment. Longing for the old days could weigh down an otherwise loving partnership. Making a point of enjoying intimate outings on a regular basis may be helpful during this attentive year.

Dragon Love Horoscope

The willful Dragon could have difficulty meeting someone special this year. Instead of trying to meet a potential partner halfway, this sign may be more intent on imposing their needs onto others. This doesn’t bode well for romance during the Year of Red Fire Rooster, when people will demand courtesy and respect. Dragons who already have partners may question their commitment. It would be better for this sign to invest more time into these relationships, not less. Dressing up to go out together can strengthen affection.

Snake Love Horoscope

The coquettish Year of the Fire Rooster will bode well romantically for sensual Snakes. Playful flirtations could develop into serious relationships, but only after an extended period of time. It’s best for this sign to postpone serious commitments until next year; 2017 is all about having fun. For Snakes who have partners, it may feel as though they’re able to reach a new level of intimacy this year. It’s possible this psychic sign will be able to read their lovers’ minds and anticipate their needs.

Horse Love Relationship

The intense, unpredictable energy of 2017 can make the Horse even more moody. This won’t bode well for romance. It may be better for members of this sign to enjoy the company of friends, rather than enter into an intense relationship. Horses who are already attached should beware of jealousy. Rumors and gossip can cause this sign to second-guess their partner’s loyalty. Instead of becoming overly possessive, it would be better for this sign to show faith in their other half. The Year of the Fire Rooster rewards trust.

Sheep Love Horoscope

The indecisive Sheep could have difficulty finding love during the Year of the Red Fire Rooster. Time is of the essence throughout 2017. Adopting a wait-and-see attitude toward a love interest could result in a lost opportunity for this sign. Sheep who are already in committed relationships should be extra sensitive to their partners’ needs. Self-involvement could result in terrible breakups. It’s better for attached members of this sign to project their energy outward during this extroverted year. Compliments, gifts, acts of service, and kind gestures are strongly advised.

Monkey Love Horoscope

The disrespectful Monkey will have a hard time attracting romance during the Year of the Red Fire Rooster. While their sarcastic jokes may have won favor in the past, they will fall flat this year, which rewards sincerity. It may be better for members of this sign to focus on their careers than get seriously involved in a relationship. Those Monkeys who already have partners should beware of letting their attention wander. Disloyalty can be disastrous in a Rooster year. Stay true to committed partners.

Rooster Love Horoscope

The ardent Rooster may face some intense romantic competition in 2017. This shouldn’t be a problem, as the faithful Year of the Red Rooster will reward members of its own sign. The thrill of the chase will be especially exciting for the Rooster this year, resulting in passionate alliances that could last a lifetime. Attached people of this sign should be careful about petty arguments with their partners. The Year of the Rooster can exacerbate arguments and heighten tensions. Working to find common ground will revive the Rooster’s relationships.

Dog Love Horoscope

The pessimistic Dog might find love elusive during the upbeat Year of the Red Fire Rooster. Instead of looking for a partner who meets all the items on a check list, members of this sign would be better to have an open mind regarding romance. Dogs who are involved in serious relationships should watch their tempers. Angry outbursts can put a real strain on even the strongest unions. Brisk exercise and meditation can be welcome outlets for the Dog’s emotional frustrations this year.

Pig Love Horoscope

Romance looks promising for the gallant Pig this year. Members of this sign will be especially attracted to love while traveling. Someone special with a sexy accent could make the adventurous Year of the Red Rooster one of the most memorable for this sign. Pigs who are already partnered will derive profound satisfaction from their unions. 2017 is ideal for this sign to get engaged or married to their other half. Buying a home with their spouse can also bring Pigs lots of pleasure this year.

2017 Year of the Rooster Horoscopes

2017 Year of the Rooster Horoscopes

See what the Year of the Red Fire Rooster brings your way

Intense, excitable, and ambitious, the Year of the Red Fire Rooster rewards dynamism and discourages lethargy. It’s time to manifest your dreams, even if the prospect is a little scary. Having the courage of your convictions will pay off in a big way in 2017.

This Year of the Rooster lasts from January 28, 2017 – February 15, 2018. Roosters are famous for their punctuality, so the early bird will definitely catch the worm during this go-getting time. Loyalty is also linked with this sign. Abandoning an existing partner or client for another could be disastrous this year — it’s better to stick with what you know. If there are misunderstandings and tensions within a relationship, use 2017 to fix them.

By the book

When it comes to business, “reduce, reuse, and recycle” should be the guiding principle of the Red Fire Rooster Year. Finding new uses for existing materials can generate huge profits. Be above-board and honest in all your dealings this year. The Rooster is famed for its principled beliefs. Exaggerated claims and broken promises will result in heavy fines and even lawsuits.

As far as careers are concerned, tourism, entertainment, and law enforcement will get big boosts this year. Caring professions like nursing, landscaping, and animal care might encounter some challenges, though.

With regard to health, pay special attention to the kidneys, bladder, and urinary tract during the Year of the Red Fire Rooster. Drink plenty of water to flush out toxins, lower the amount of salt in your diet, and limit alcohol intake for optimal health.

Rooster Years make people opinionated and dogmatic. Arguments about religion, politics, and ethics can be quite heated in 2017. Beware of doing permanent damage to relationships at this time. It will be practically impossible to change anyone’s mind this year, so adopt a “live and let live” policy when you’re in mixed company. Channel strong beliefs into group endeavors that are devoted to your favorite causes.

The Red Fire influence

2017 is a Red Fire Year, which means it will be characterized by pageantry, pomp, and circumstance. Flamboyant fashions will continue to dominate clothing stores. Formal parties and lavish ceremonies will be more successful than casual, quiet get-togethers. Break out the fine china, linen napkins, and monogrammed silverware. Make a big fanfare of happy occasions. The Year of the Red Fire Rooster urges all of us to strut our stuff in style!

Get more guidance with your Chinese sign’s Year of the Rooster Horoscope:

Rat Horoscope

The most intelligent sign in the Chinese zodiac, you Rats will enjoy the many learning opportunities that 2017 brings. Acquiring valuable skills is the fastest way to land a lucrative job. The Year of the Red Fire Rooster is a terrific time to transition into another industry. Money won’t be plentiful, so you should not make risky investments or take out loans. Aerobic exercise will have a good effect on you, since Rooster years reward those who are active and dynamic. Mixing with friends can also cultivate success.

Ox Horoscope

Although you’re famous for your work ethic, career prospects may not be terribly exciting for you during the Year of the Red Fire Rooster. Holding down a steady job will generate enough money for both necessities and the occasional luxury, though. This resourceful time is ideal for you to open a retirement, savings, or college account. 2017 could reveal a hidden creative talent, provided you break out of your conservative shell. Your health should be good, especially if you don’t tax your system with lots of spicy food, sugar, and alcohol.

Tiger Horoscope

Your natural bravery will be rewarded in 2017, provided you set lofty goals and stay focused on them. Go after what you really want instead of hedging your bets. This rule holds true for work, money, and romance; playing it safe will be wasteful in 2017. The curious energy of the Rooster makes this a great time to take a new job or embark on a passionate romance. Respiratory problems could occur this year, though. Make sure to see an allergist or pulmonary specialist if you have trouble breathing, and regularly change the air filters in your home.

Rabbit Horoscope

The intense energy of the Red Fire Rooster Year can distress your tranquil nature. This could be a blessing in disguise. A shake-up at work could prompt you to relocate to an area where it is easier to find work. It may be necessary to go into debt to cover your expenses but don’t panic. You’ll be able to get back into the black later. Right now, you should pour most of your energy into maintaining good health. Spending time by the water can be very therapeutic.

Dragon Horoscope

The Year of the Red Fire Rooster will be a wonderful enhancement to your natural charisma. Your managerial skills will be celebrated at work, allowing you to finish projects on time and under budget. It will be necessary to devise innovative products and services to generate a profit this year. Instead of buying new materials, use upcycled ones for a fraction of the cost. You may be promoted. Nervous tension can create health problems during this high-energy year. Practice relaxation techniques to avoid headaches and stomach problems.

Snake Horoscope

Stylish and wily, you’ll have no trouble attracting admirers throughout 2017. The steadfast nature of the Rooster may not sit well with you, though. You’d rather play the field than make a serious commitment. Be clear about your intentions with a love interest. You will be able to move up the professional ladder, particularly if you present a polished image. Dress for the job you want instead of the one you already have. Make sure to go the optometrist for a check-up, as Rooster years can strain your eyes.

Horse Horoscope

Your independent energy will be rewarded during the Year of the Red Fire Rooster. 2017 is a great time to launch your own business or become a free agent. Getting a job that involves frequent travel could also be lucrative. If you work on a commission basis, you’ll see handsome profits during this intrepid year. Take this opportunity to buy a status symbol you’ve been craving. This year puts a special emphasis on good nutritional choices. Fresh produce, lean protein, and whole grains will give you an attractive glow that’s hard to resist.

Sheep Horoscope

Thoughtful and reserved, you may be challenged by the frenetic energy of the Red Fire Rooster Year. It may be necessary for you to find a new job because your existing one will become unpleasant. Take this opportunity to land a position that draws on your considerable creative talent. Getting paid to exercise your imagination will be a welcome change of pace. Resist the temptation to dip into savings; it’s better to be resourceful with money. A positive outlook will cultivate health and well-being throughout 2017.

Monkey Horoscope

Quick thinking and curious, you’ll enjoy the intellectually stimulating energy that the Year of the Red Fire Rooster affords. Although you won’t get a promotion or high-profile job, you will acquire some valuable skills that will later advance your career. Extra money could arrive through a raffle or lottery win; a single ticket is all you need to reap big rewards. Your health could be compromised by bad habits like binge eating. Practice moderation to get the energy you need, and reap all the rewards 2017 can afford you.

Rooster Horoscope

Flamboyant and charming, you’ll come into your own in 2017. The perfectionist Year of the Fire Rooster invites you to be the best you can be. When things go wrong, turn your attention inward. Embarking on a self-improvement program will be more effective than putting the blame on others. Working as part of a team will bring you tremendous career success; don’t be surprised if you are named MVP. Anemia could be a problem for you this year; taking iron supplements can prevent exhaustion from setting in.

Dog Horoscope

Your honesty will be rewarded during the candid Year of the Fire Rooster. Acting as a trusted consultant to an executive could be very profitable for you. Having a steady job will ease your tendency to worry about money. You could also make a great living with any job involving caring for people, animals, or plants. Health problems can occur in 2017 when you put your needs aside for the sake of others. Putting aside time for yourself each day will stave off stress-related illnesses like back pain and chronic infections.

Pig Horoscope

Your affectionate nature will be well received in the Year of the Red Fire Rooster. Everyone will be so anxious to get ahead; being in your relaxing company will be a welcome change of pace at this ambitious time. Pairing up with a dynamic partner could yield impressive profits for you. You may pick up several new clients or job offers as a result of this partnership. Loneliness can be a problem for you in 2017. Talking to a therapist could be very beneficial this year; don’t bottle up your emotions.

2017 Love Horoscope

2017 Love Horoscope

Say YES to love

By Maria DeSimone

In many ways, 2017 will be a banner year for love. Much of it has to do with Jupiter, the planet of expansion and blessings. Back in September 2016, he moved into the partnership-oriented sign of Libra for the first time in nearly 12 years. As a result, until October 10, 2017, love and marriage will be especially lucky for so many! The capacity to relate expands, as well as overall faith in partnership. You can’t go wrong pairing up with someone under this influence!

Two supportive eclipses will also shine a light on romance: on February 10 a Lunar Eclipse, and on August 21 a Solar Eclipse — both in open-hearted Leo. This will be a year to truly say “yes” to giving and receiving love.

There are lessons to be learned

Of course, no year is without challenges. In 2017, despite the amazing support for relationship, there will be a lesson in store. From March 4 – April 15, Venus, the planet ruling love and marriage, will retrograde. She’ll backpedal mainly in the independent sign of Aries, although from April 2-15 she will revisit Pisces. As a result of this retrograde, there will be clear revisions necessary connected to loving someone else, without forgetting the importance of loving and honoring your individual needs. During the latter part of the retrograde in Pisces, the emphasis will be on gaining clarity between loving someone unconditionally without being a doormat as a result.

2017 Horoscope

Finding balance in life and love

By Maria DeSimone

2017 will certainly be a year for relationship milestones. Interestingly enough, we’ll also have an opportunity to figure out how to maximize the benefits of partnership without mourning the total loss of identity.

Until October 10, 2017, Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance, will make his way through the partnership-oriented sign Libra. This will be an exciting time for many, since relationships will be more supported than they have been in years. Expect business alliances, marriages, and other unions to enjoy an extra boost of faith and blessing. You’ll notice that it’s easier to adopt a more balanced, diplomatic perspective where you’re truly able to support and have faith in another person’s point of view. As a result, collaborations of all kinds will experience brilliant success potential.

Re-evaluating romance

Despite Jupiter’s fair-minded approach for most of 2017, there will be an ironic monkey wrench in the cosmic sky to navigate. Between March 4 and April 15, Venus, the planet of love, beauty, money, and self-worth, will retrograde. Until April 2 she’ll backpedal in the most independent sign, Aries, and then will dip into Pisces for the remainder of her retrograde phase. As a result, it appears that a lesson concerning how to balance personal needs and worth — while still maintaining a relationship — might be in order. Re-evaluating one’s approach to expressing an authentic sense of self will be the most ideal way to get the most value out of this particular retrograde phase.

If you’re in a relationship just to be coupled up, you might have a difficult time during Venus Retrograde. It’ll be impossible to make personal concessions that compromise your own sense of self just to be part of a couple. If you have been playing this game, you might be in for some trouble once Venus retrogrades. Fortunately, this is also an opportunity to achieve true balance and maintain the best of both worlds (as part of a couple and as an individual). You must, however, be willing to take personal responsibility for your life and choices.

To thine own self be true

On October 10, Jupiter will move into Scorpio. You can expect heightened intuition to serve you well as you make significant changes regarding investment and joint financial matters. Jupiter will be at a perfect trine to Neptune on December 2, when faith will be expanded, and so will spiritual luck. Because you will wholeheartedly believe in a successful outcome at this time, there is simply no room for failure. Wonderful!

In other news, Saturn will remain in Sagittarius all year, reminding us of how important it is to be true to our ideals and to live a life of responsible integrity. Fortunately, Saturn will trine Uranus on May 19 and again on November 11, helping us breathe whatever new life is required into our traditional beliefs and philosophies in order to have them make sense in our current times.

Pursuing passions

The eclipses in 2017 have much to say about love, creative, and social potential. A Lunar Eclipse in Leo on February 10, followed by a Solar Eclipse in Leo on August 21, will help you make progress in an artistic pursuit that brings you much joy. Eclipses in Leo favor romance, as well as anything to do with children.

A Solar Eclipse on February 26 in Pisces will help us take a leap of faith wherever it’s needed most. Finally, a Lunar Eclipse on August 7 in humanitarian Aquarius will provide just the right amount of awareness necessary to remind us that we are not alone. The actions of one individual can have a ripple effect across the masses. That’s right, it all starts with you.

January 2017 Ascension Energies

January 2017 Ascension Energies

December Review

December began with an emotional intensity that moved into an emotional detachment for many. This is a precursor to the 2017 energy.

December initiated some deep patterns beginning a new layer of shift within humanity, though that is not visible on the outer experience. I saw patterns of abuse resolving to new levels as inner change continues to rise to the surface and dissipate.

This is the flow of these times—as humanity ascends, the discord shakes out and shapes into new form. A new you, a new union.

The energy of December offered practice in self-nurturing. Learning to be your own well-spring of support, even while it is appropriate and necessary at times to give and receive support. Humanity has generally interacted from dominate/subservient positioning, so this is a necessary step into more Empowered Sovereignty (2017 energy).

This is why Ascension is about being consciously and actively focused on the Light, the quantum information, your inner world—because that is where real change begins. The focus on your thoughts and emotions is about utilizing your power to reshape Life from within, within the quantum realm. Peace and patience are key to creating the (k)new within the chaos of the current human condition.

December heralds a trajectory of choice that diverges the path of connection. ;o) A quiet within the chaos.

2017 Overview

Areon is calling 2017 The Year of The Empowered Sovereign. Within the human experience duality, separation, and physical conditionality are obvious. But they’re not the whole story. The Divine Human experience also includes the unification with the subtle realm of Oneness, connection, and unconditionality. 2017 will call Lightworkers to honor their inner uniqueness and power more boldly. It’s an inside job.

The Empowered Sovereign.

THE honors your uniqueness. In all of timespace, you are unique. With all of your parallel lives, your timelessness, your infinite nature—your unique perspective adds to the totality of perfection that Life is. Do you honor your uniqueness and all of the beautiful uniqueness around you? That which stirs you to compassion, to courage, to a new direction, to a new connection?

EMPOWERED honors your work. In this realm of time and space, your unique perspective leads you to unique choice, which leads you to unique action. It is always available to you on the inner realm. The past tense of empowered is a clue to this timelessness. You already own it. Pro-claim it!

SOVEREIGN honors your divinity. You are the supreme ruler of your inner domain, the realm within which you connect with the Oneness, potential, God, unconditionality, and Love—no matter what the external circumstance presents. You hold court within, the ultimate judge, ruler, and decider of your inner realm. Does the outside dominate you, or do you choose your inner action (interaction)? It’s your response-ability.

The Flavour of 2017

Because there is an increased focus on inner empowerment and honoring your sovereignty in 2017, we can expect to continue to see humanity polarizing more. For many this will look like strife, divisiveness, and chaos, but for others it will be a more subtle realm experience. Like an understanding of a differences and potentials before an actualization of choice.

There is likely going to be quite a bit of surprising experiences in the mainstream. Your Light work will be to look for the potentials that are forming. I’m shown this polarization as cell mitosis—division is life continuing, expanding, a new “generation.”  But there is a connection to the whole and what is being created on a larger level that is the broader truth. You are creating the future. Don’t let the outside world confuse your vibration. Areon says this polarization will feel like “bigger gaps,” so be the bridge of connection.

In 2017 look for more emotional detachment at times, more ah-ha moments, and yes, more discord releasing (likely stronger in the first 4 months of the year). At times this may feel like bigger waves that pass more quickly, so in the midst of change keep your eye on the prize of more freedom and empowerment with each shift. For others (or at other times), 2017 will feel more neutral, like you’ve “been there done that.” It may surprise you that you aren’t getting more upset at circumstances. Mark your progress and create from this more empowered stance rather than a fear response.

Look for clearer vision within, that your focus can bring you clarity, with less fear about “am I doing it right?” There is a simple yet powerful exercise offered in the January video.

2017 will offer some tests of personal responsibility, so observe your integrity, your intentions, and your motivations. This ability to honestly self-observe and assess change is a powerful, powerful, powerful part of Ascension. Can you do that without negative judgment or fear? A weak ego will avoid (go subservient) or distract (go dominant), so as you can observe both challenge and triumph with more ease, you will find more rapid and easier change. And change is constant.

I also feel some exciting support in 2017 that in many ways feels like much of the clean slate/reset energy that kept surfacing in 2016 (not the easiest of years!). I especially feel a powerful wave of this coming in February.

All of this is creating a more empowered you that is more “in the moment” rather than reacting from fear of the past or future. Which brings us right into January energies…

January Energies

There is a pattern of dominance/subservience releasing that is a deep wave. Most can’t see the movement of it yet. 2016 brought a lot of release as you refined and clarified (the Year of Clarity) yourself. It created a momentum of humanity standing up in ways that aren’t always pretty or easy. This wave will continue to grow.

There is a pattern of “enabling” that is changing. It begins with a release of past traumas that set up a disempowerment or fracture within that can keep one interacting from past fear. The past, no matter what occurred, offers the potential of empowered support for the present, which builds the future.

Many sensitive people, Lightworkers, empaths, etc. were overwhelmed by the pain and circumstances of the past and are unconsciously reacting rather than choosing in the present. Again, that ability to self-observe, self-nurture, and support yourself into change (even when you receive support from others) is a vital part of humanity changing.

Releasing Trauma, Realizing Empowerment

As you release trauma, work toward forgiveness and neutrality, and seek more peace and ease in your internal realm, you are simultaneously building your strength and clarity. As you release, you activate; as you activate you release. As you release trauma, your “real eyes” become clearer and you can see the truth of your divinity. Here we come full circle. Your wholeness. Your Empowered Sovereignty moves up to a new level in 2017, the energetics of Ascension are compelling humanity into more empowerment. You are a forerunner of this because you are actively focused on your Loving evolution. With great power, comes great responsibility. ;o)

In general January may feel a bit distracting with activity, but it will begin a catalyst of movement that may feel a little removed as well as deep. Your work is always the same, maintain a positive healthy focus of Love while being boldly “grounded” in reality. This anchors the new energies and your inherent divinity into your life and on Earth rather than creating patterns of avoidance.

Your power is immense and now you may notice more internal progression (after the workout of 2016!) and more external energetic support. Enjoy the quiet moments of January. They will be silent reminders that you are on the right track. This is more natural to us than it sometimes feels. Love and improvement are the natural pull of Life.

In Summary

2017 is going to be a fast-moving, intense year in many ways. Yet for those on a path of conscious Ascension, you may notice healthy detachment (almost surprisingly after 2016!) helping you to remain more neutral and focused in the midst of intensity. This will benefit you and humanity.

Remind yourself of the amazing work you did in 2016 and know that 2017 will be a wonderfully transformative year of new beginnings (it’s a “1” year numerologically – a new beginning) that are calling you to open to receive the support of Life flowing through you. You are Life in human form and cherished beyond measure. See that in yourself and in All Life and keep enhancing Life with your blessed presence. Happy 2017!

2017 Energy Reports: Releasing These in a Segmented Series

2017 Energy Reports: Releasing These in a Segmented Series

Aloha love family,

I am working on the 2017 Energy Report(s) in many different segments, because of how much information there is, the different dimensions and collectives there are, and how each dimension will experience is vastly different. Those who have been doing this process intentionally will understand this….

I will be typing these up in segments and am not sure if it will be 2 segments or 10… we will find out… They will all be titled: 2017 Energy Report: (Then followed by the primary focus of each report.) I hope to voice record them as well at some point, yet vibrationally all has to align for me to accomplish everything here.

What is coming, like in the previous linear years, when we “see”, we have to take great care in how we share the information, because each perceives this information differently. When I gained “prophetic abilities” a years ago, a whole new level of responsibility also came forth. There is much that we do not share, because it is so vastly mis-understood and for many, we choose not to project such things “creating a belief, fear or conceptualized reality”. We present in a way that this information can be utilized as a tool to work with in order to experience this huge process much easier.  We do realize that experience is necessary to give one a “reference point to understand all of this”, until experience is no longer required in order to “get it” fully from within. Those who are totally open and ready, it’s a very different experience than those who are not. Other times, it’s totally appropriate to say certain things to stir all up, to challenge fixed/limited human mindsets, to create confusion so that clarity can be achieved. Confusion is the human stretching/challenging the “boxes” of realities created and believed as “real”. Challenging realities is what often opens the door for others realities not previously perceived to become visible. One’s heart has to open FULLY for this to occur. Fear becomes a motivator instead of being “frozen” in time. We “work” to move those ready beyond the space of “needing” fear (perceived as loss or threats) as a tool to open up/step-up/do what it takes to shift realities intentionally and as love here. Fear creates one experience, love creates another. Each are always available. The parallel created/timeline activated is determined by either unconscious or conscious actions…

What’s coming is all-over-the place if we lump it all into one box. We have to separate it out by dimensions to explain it, so that each vibrating in and out of different dimensional experiences can identify with which dimension they are currently creating/experiencing, so as to choose to shift intentionally, therefore changing dimensions. It is that easy. The “hard part” is the achieving of the physical body’s OVERALL vibrating at that highest frequency all of the time, to actually physically gain the ability to not vibrate physically back into (old) unconscious one again and the ability to ACHIEVE YOUR HIGHEST ONE in the physical here.

Because absolutely everything is a part of this, every reality, every occurrence, every part of your body, your mental constructs, your emotions, your physical body density (physical matter/space/mass), the Light Quotient integrated into your physical body (LightBody), the amount of evolved/formed crystals (Crystalline/Christed Consciousness) formed within your physical body structure, the amount of embedded higher light codes, the amount of density that has been released, the amount of SPACE held in your body (yes, as a Galactic), the evolution of your physical body occurs as you open your heart fully, bring the walls down, open/stretch your mind continually (Higher/Universal Mind), the more your entire neural network has been re-wired, your organs/glands (systems) have been re-worked, the less your human controls the process out of fear and you honor the process as a multi-dimensional here.

The 12/20/16 showings of “The Extreme of Extremes” now begins as we have CROSSED THE THRESHOLD into the next phase that continaully begins, today being a marker point for our “new year”. Nothing is linear and all occurs vibrationally. We have now reached that vibration. This is occurring “faster” and “faster”, as the cycling process has been increased substantially now.

Over the last two days, we began a HUGE TEMPLATE WIPING and Operating System Upgrade process, with new light encodements/filaments being embedded into our’s & Earth Gaia’s Physical Bodies to bring our Crystalline LightBody Structures further online here. Deep cellular cleansings and deep core SOUL “work” is occurring on a multi-dimensionally/on an energetic level. Every cell in our body going through deep CORE re-sequencing right now.

These intricate re-coding & re-calibration processes are as complicated or as simple as we require/allow them to be. Honoring the process and being totally present and aware, as it can be quite uncomfortable for our human, yet very easy for us as Galactics here. This discomfort is also cellular cleansing that needs to occur. Discomfort is often the energy that presents as we transcend our own human’ness and deep cellular programming held within. Breaking points are necessary for the really super big shifts. These can be extremely physical, emotional or just energetic. How physically dense (matter) or light (energy) we are will dictate HOW we experience this.

Today we continue deep cellular cleansings and template re-writes, so be kind to yourself and honor what your body speaks to you. If you feel to sleep, sleep. The integration process will occur easier, yet your human will have issues. Early years, “Deal with it”, were my higher selve’s words along the way…. Our human minds don’t work when huge operating system upgrades are occurring (which are continual now). Linear work is a great struggle for those of us that have this as a part of how we provide here. It takes every moment of “forward movement” for us to accomplish all vibrationally to adhere to linear parameters, yet not being bound by these. Once the process is complete, all will “speed up” for you to re-align/to re-align for you, with all functioning at a “higher processing rate” than ever before. Be patient, for when this occurs, portals/gateways open huge “releasing” everything that was “on the other side” to arrive/materialize that was not physically available/accessable before.

StarGate alignments now increase beyond anything before. These BRING ALL INTO ALIGNMENT FOR US and create the “convergence” of a multitude of dimensions in this “space” here. It’s also when Inner Earth “vibrations” amp up/increase and Galactic Portals open in order to vibrationally converge multiple dimensions/galaxies/timelines in our physical one here.

I will write more on this in other segments and post links back to my website to read these soon. So very much love to you! ♥
