Astrological forecast January 2017


Happy new year everyone!

In general, January 2017 appears to be a quiet and serene month.
Peace and serenity in the middle of a period of brooding turmoil and upheaval.
Is it a calm before the storm?

Yet something is brewing.

In the first week of January 2017, the influence of the volatile T-square between Jupiter in Libra, Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn will be strongly felt in the world.
This T-square describes the social polarization and cry for justice.
A collective awakening.
More and more people are dissatisfied and want tot have a say. Dissatisfaction is the breeding ground for populism.
People want to decide for themselves what is good and feels good. What is just and what is not.
In this optimistic and lighthearted atmosphere of change and renewal, we should take into account insincerity and exaggerated impossibilities.

We begin 2017 with the red warrior Mars forming an exact conjunction with King Neptune in the dreamy waters of Pisces.
On the first day of the year, the atmosphere seems light, quiet, dreamy and lazy.

Not everything is as nice as it seems with Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces.
This hypersensitive combination Mars/Neptune in Pisces can also cause anxiety, threat, addiction, violence, terrorism, cyber attacks, outbreak of infectious diseases and flooding.
This sensitive conjunction between Mars and Neptune can also lead literally and figuratively to a hangover …

From January 4, 2017 until February 3 2017, Venus, the goddess of Love and Beauty will be swimming in the dreamy waves of King Neptune.
Thanks to Venus in Pisces, life seems happy and sweet.
In January 2017, Venus is the Evening Star. Venus can be seen a few hours after sunset in the southwest.

In the first week op the year we also have to deal with Mercury in retrograde…
With this Mercury in retrograde it seems that life doesn’t pick up any speed.
Don’t try to force or push things through, for the first week of the year does not lead to the desired results.
Mercury in Capricorn descends back to return to the fiery realm of Sagittarius from January 5, 2017 until January 12, 2017.
From January 8, 2017 Mercury in Sagittarius accelerates to move forward again.
As of January 13, 2017 is Mercury back in Capricorn and progress can be made again.
This month, from 6 to January 26, 2017. Mercury can be seen at dawn in the southeast on the horizon.

From January 10, 2017, Uranus in Aries is full ahead steam again.
With no retrograde planets, you could actually say that 2017 starts from January 8, 2017!

The first half of January 2017 is supported by the harmonious trine between Saturn and Uranus in Aries. This trine was formed on December 10, 2016 and lasts until January 13, 2017.
This harmonic support will also appear as a planetary safety net during 2017 in this divided world.
Saturn trine Uranus leads to the practical application of new scientific and technological breakthroughs, new forms of economic and political organizations, new forms of collaboration and citizen initiatives.
From January 12, 2017, Saturn can be observed in the eastern morning sky just before sunrise.

On Sunday, January 8th, 2017 Pluto made a covenant with the Sun at 17º Capricorn.
This day shows potential to see positive improvements.

On 11 and January 12, 2017, Pluto forms a nice sextile in Pisces with Mars. This helping hand is a planetary support in putting good intentions in action!

On January 12, 2017, the Sun in Capricorn and the Moon in Cancer form the Full Moon on 22º Cancer.

Inauguration Day 2017, the day Donald Trump will assume the role of chief executive of the United States is the day when the Sun enters the airy realm of Aquarius. The next four weeks will be colored with Aquarius' energy of freedom and independence.
A very different energy. The sign of the Water Bearer will be accelerating the pace.
In the next four weeks, the Sun in Aquarius once again will prove how important freedom and independence are in this life.
On Friday, January 20th, 2017, Pluto invites the fair Venus in Pisces for a cozy get-together and that means to us on Earth a great opportunity to join forces.

On January 29 2017, the red warrior Mars enters his fiery realm of Aries.
Mars returns home from his two year voyage through the zodiac.
With an indomitable energy, Mars will put things in order!
Because of this we experience more strength, courage, initiative and persuasiveness.
Mars is combative, wont’t give up and won’t give in.
But Mars in Aries means also selfishness, aggressiveness, impatience, carelessness and impulsiveness. Mars will stay in Aries until March 10, 2017!

The weekend of 28th and January 29th, 2017 looks promising when Pluto and Mercury in Capricorn join forces together for a planetary game of chess!

January 2017 will end with a soft energy.
The Moon has immersed in the realm of Pisces in which we are open to innovation and willing to resolve any issues first before continue our evolutionary path.

Wishing you all a good start of 2017!
