Aquarius Season: January 20 – February 18
I hope you’re ready for a new chapter! We are officially stepping out into the light of 2017 from ♑️ Capricorn’s lab where we’ve been busily working on re-structuring our strategies and putting together our master plans for the new year. And now that we’re heading into the airy, yet forward thinking season of ♒️ Aquarius, we’ll be switching gears and beginning to take our plans & ideas out into our communities.
Aquarius is a sign that cares about new ideas, friendship, and celebrating equality & diversity. This season is about escaping out of the shackles of our comfort zones, envisioning a radical new world, and taking part in social activism to stand up for our beliefs.
Since we’re merely just beginning the Age of Aquarius, a roughly 2,150-year time period that will eventually revolutionize our world in previously unimaginable ways, this 4-week span of the Sun in Aquarius could certainly help move along the evolutionary process.
One of the most major astrological events of the month, besides our big Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo on February 10th, is when Jupiter goes retrograde in Libra from February 5th – June 9th, 2017. All planets eventually go retrograde at some point, but when Jupiter does it tends to make us focus our growth inwardly – and it lasts 4 whole months!

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)
After a month of developing your career strategies, your focus for Aquarius season now turns into more of a group effort. What do people need? And how can YOU specifically help them? Your goal will be to develop a better rapport with your community over the next 4 weeks by helping others in your own unique way – or even just attracting them with your awesome way of being of service.
There is also the theme of cultivating your own creativity coming to light with the upcoming Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo. This means the great work you’re doing for others will also need to be balanced with a healthy dose of fun & excitement for you, so try to keep the giving & receiving balance on track so you don’t burn out! Remember, you need to take care of your needs, too.
Luckily, once your ruler Mars moves out of slow-moving Pisces and into its prime comfort zone in your sign of Aries, you will be feeling so much more pumped up and ready to pave the way for your own personal new year (and possibly even a whole new you). In February, Venus will also head into your sign, helping you harmonize with your new & improved identity and gain recognition and admiration for your efforts.
And finally, when Jupiter goes retrograde for 4 months, it will help you re-think the growth trajectory of your closest love/business relationships. As long as you do the work, this has the potential to be your biggest area of growth of the year.
TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)
After a month of breaking down boundaries & beliefs that had long been keeping you from growing & expanding into a fuller lifestyle, your career is now the big area that is being highlighted for you over the next 4 weeks. This is the time to STOP bending backward so much for others, decide on your true goals, and begin to work smarter (rather than harder) on building your life’s work.
So yes, be prepared to do what you need to do to build your empire, Taurus, but try not to forget all about your family. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on February 10 will shine the light on any areas of your home life where insecurities lie so you can work through them and put them behind you in time.
Luckily, your ruler Venus will be following fellow planet Mars from Pisces into Aries in early February, sending some lovely healing energy towards any unfinished business or unprocessed emotions that may have been holding you back from success. Let it go so you can grow!
When Jupiter goes retrograde for 4 months, your ingrained beliefs about work/health/daily routines may be affected. This will be a time for learning more about yourself and the experiences you wish to have, so take note. After June 9, you’ll be able to see great progress in these areas and it could very well end up being quite a transformational year for you in the end!
GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)
After a month of honing your money mindset and organizing your financial resources, it’s time to go on an adventure. I hope you’re ready to expand your horizons in some new & exciting ways because the Sun will be visiting your 9th house of Travel & Education over the next 4 weeks, helping you see beyond your normal everyday sphere of life. This will be a wonderful time for you to branch out and explore new topics, ideas, places, and even people.
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on February 10th will land in your 3rd house of Social Networking, helping you release any issues that may be hindering your ability to reach out to other people. Your lesson is to NOT be so afraid to tap into your Facebook friend list to see how they can help if you really need it! You may be surprised what can happen when you open the door to help.
Meanwhile, your ruling planet Mercury will start out this season in Capricorn, providing you with a more serious mindset about work matters. But then Mercury the messenger planet will join the Sun in Aquarius, creating more of a group dialogue that could help give you a new perspective. Where do you stand on the issues of today?
Lastly, when Jupiter goes retrograde in your 5th house for the next 4 months, you may be re-thinking how you wish to nurture your more creative side and have fun in your life. Whatever you wish for during this time is what you’ll have a great chance of manifesting after mid-June, so take this time to get very clear on what you want to explore in your life + career next because it has the potential to grow quickly for you this year!
CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)
After a month of exploring your options within your closest romantic & business relationships, it’s time to get real about your shared financial situation. Over the next 4 weeks, the Sun will be visiting your 8th house of Business & Shared Resources, helping you re-visit how you keep your money flowing. This could involve making new investments, starting a business, or pooling (or un-pooling) your resources with another person.
Before you can make sure you’ll always have what you need financially, you need to figure out where your true values actually lie. The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo will help remind you what really matters to you so you can put anything behind that isn’t getting you any closer to what you truly want. The Last Quarter Moon in Sagittarius will be precisely the perfect time to let go of anything that has been keeping you stuck & help you move on stronger than ever.
When Jupiter goes retrograde for 4 months, it will be happening in your 4th house of Family & Home Security. This is probably something that is on your mind a lot already being a Cancer, however, this will be an especially big time to re-think your growth options and explore new ideas for your ideal family & home life. After June, this area will be full speed ahead in expansion mode again, so use this time to get ultra clear on what you want to create in your life next!
LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)
After a month of mixing up your work, health & daily lifestyle resolutions, Aquarius season will now have you looking outside of yourself for additional support. This may mean getting much more serious with a business or romantic partnership, or figuring out who in your close circle really has your back when you need it. Either way, I’m sure it would be good to know to whose shoulders are the right ones to lean on when you need a friend.
With the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your sign of Leo, this has the potential to end up being a major manifestation month for you. However, it can also bring out any deep inner fears you may have had about shining your brightest and standing out as an inspiration to others. That is exactly what you were meant to do, Leo, so please don’t dim to fit in! The rest of us are greatly in need of your shining example and you will deserve every ounce of recognition you receive.
Meanwhile, Jupiter – the planet of growth & expansion – will be heading backward in your 3rd house of community starting in mid-February. This will be a really good time to re-think how best you can utilize your network (online or offline) to get more of what you want. Progress may seem slow for a while, but by June you will be ready to power forward and grow your network like never before.
VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)
After a month of working on bringing more fun & creativity into your life, it’s time to get a little more serious about how you can smartly sustain the type of lifestyle you really want to have. This may require doing a complete makeover of your work & health routines and daily rituals so you can put your updated priorities for 2017 at the top of your to-do list.
When the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse hits in Leo on February 10th, it will be landing in your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits & Unfinished Business. This can be a deeply clarifying moon because it will be great for uncovering and letting go of any stuck areas in your psyche, but you may start off feeling a bit unsettled if you have been hiding from your shadow for a while. Allow yourself to go within to clear any spiritual & emotional blockages.
Meanwhile, your ruler Mercury will start off in Capricorn and move into Aquarius later in the season, turning your playful mindset into one that is a little more set on helping things flow easier within your daily life. That is good because, when Jupiter heads retrograde for 4 months, it will be happening in your 2nd house of Values. This will be a pivotal time of re-thinking what your true priorities are – whether it’s money, family, home, or health – so that you can learn how to expand and grow its presence in your life throughout the rest of 2017.
LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)
After a month of focusing on securing your future and improving your home & family life, it’s time to look into what you can do to add a dash of fun. The next 4 weeks will be a great time for exploring your creativity and taking the edge off if you have been over-working or spending too much time wrapped up in others’ issues. What can you do to get your playful spark back?
As the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse falls in Leo on February 10th, it will be shining a light on ways you can be a bigger part of your community and help others, too. Before you can do too much about it, you may need to clear any limiting beliefs that have been keeping you from going out into the open and asserting your viewpoint in the past. What is the worst that can happen by putting yourself out there more?
On a brighter note, your ruler Venus will soon be heading into Aries, blessing your close relationships with harmonious vibes. Near that same time, Jupiter will begin retrograde in your sign for 4 months to helping you realize who you really are on a deeper level. Your identity is going to be such a major area of growth for you this year that you may not even recognize yourself by the end, but first, you’ll need to do some soul-searching. Let yourself be free to explore all the possibilities without having to make any set decisions quite yet if you can.
SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)
After a month of connecting with your network in new ways, it’s time to take your focus back to your roots. Aquarius season will be shining a light on your home & family life, helping you smooth over any emotional securities and set a more stable and fulfilling course for your future by implementing some new ideas and approaches to old issues.
As the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo falls in your 10th house of career, you’ll just need to remember not to get too ruthless about your long-term security. It really is possible to achieve great things in your career now without being so obsessed with success that you let an over-ambitious attitude take you over the edge.
Meanwhile, your ruler Pluto will be in Capricorn all year long (and beyond). On a global level, this will be helping us revolutionize our government systems & structures. However, for you, it’s more about transforming your network and having the courage to surround yourself with better, more like-minded people that will help support and inspire you.
As Jupiter heads retrograde in your 12th house for 4 months, you’ll also be re-thinking how you want to expand your more mystical side in 2017. This could be an experimental time of finding what feels right for you. Maybe it’s as simple as adopting yoga into your weekly schedule, or as big as spending more time tapping into your own intuition to manifest your greatest desires.
SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)
After this past month of exploring what really matters to you in your life & career, Aquarius season will have you now looking to your network to help you get what you want. This will be a fabulous time for strengthening your web of support as well as sharing your insights & ideas with others. However, you will need to learn to lose any fears of reaching out, asking for help, or putting yourself out there in general. As this lovely book says, “You are enough!”
On the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo, the tables will turn just a bit, bringing out any issues within your existing belief systems that may have been holding you back from expanding in new & exciting ways. This will be happening not to confuse you, but to re-inspire you to hone in on which of your ideas are really in your best interests, so you can let go of any that are not and move on.
Meanwhile, your ruler Jupiter will be heading backward in your 11th house of community, helping you re-think what you could do to help your friends or the greater community around you (and therefore help you, too!). Finding your place within your community is actually one of the biggest focuses of the year & areas of growth for you, so this 4-month retrograde period will be a good time for brainstorming how you could grow your community relations, so you can prepare them to explode after Jupiter Retrograde ends in June.
CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)
After 4 weeks of exploring how you want to structure your life for maximum success in 2017, Aquarius season will help you explore what you value in life. This will be a time of asking & discovering for yourself what really matters to you so you can get more deeply in touch with yourself and re-align your master strategy however needed.
When the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse lands in Leo on February 10th, this may bring out any issues in your business or financial situation that may be holding you back from getting more of what you value. This moon will also help you cut out any misalignments and move on with a business plan that will finally take you where you really want to go.
Meanwhile, your ruler Saturn is going to be in Sagittarius all year long, hanging out in your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits and expanding your more spiritual side. Capricorns are known as the sea-goat, a mystical animal that is comfortable in both the practical world and matters of the unseen. This could be a year when you can truly transform your spiritual, mental or physical boundaries and tap into your higher purpose if you do the work you know you’re supposed to.
Heads up: Jupiter going retrograde in your 10th house may require a 4-month brainstorming session for your career. Luckily, this happens to be one of your biggest areas of growth for 2017. However, you’ll first need to spend this retrograde season exploring how to work your magic in a way that best suits you. Just don’t forget to get out from that pile of work & have some fun once in a while!
AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)
Happy Birthday, Aquarius! After a month of exploring the deepest parts of your psyche and restructuring your life to provide you with more ways to feel fulfilled, the Sun now heads into your sign for the next 4 weeks. For some Aquarians, this can cause a mini identity crisis at first, however, by the end of the month, the goal is to step more into your personal power by knowing who you are and owning it, too. Soon Mercury will also be joining the Sun in your sign of Aquarius, turning the universal mindset into one that is more idea-driven and much more receptive to your unique ways of seeing things.
The upcoming Full Moon Lunar Eclipse falls in your opposite sign of Leo, challenging your opinions around being one with the group vs. being special in your own way. You can be both, you know, and it will be your job this month to figure out how to find a healthy balance between giving to others and allowing yourself to receive recognition for your efforts in return.
Meanwhile, your ruling planet Uranus will be hanging out in the final degrees of Aries for most of this year. And soon, Uranus will be directly opposite of Jupiter’s retrograde path through Libra. This can make for some tension between having the urge to take action on your radical new ideas NOW and balancing your desire to keep inwardly exploring and learning new things, thinking you may not have chosen the right solution quite yet. That may be sort of true since you probably won’t be able to get super far on any plans for any outer expansion until Jupiter goes direct in June, so, for now, you’ll need to turn within to find what you seek.
PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)
After a month of looking at how you can be of service to your community, it’s time to dive even deeper. As the Sun tours through your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits, you will be exploring the depths of your imagination which can include both your hopes & fears for the future over the next 4 weeks. On the bright side, this can be wonderful energy for tapping into your higher self and releasing any insecurities that have been holding you back from shining even brighter!
The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo on February 10th will bring out the opposite issue and point out the flaws that are holding you back in your daily work & health routines so you can become more grounded and serene in your life + career. As a Pisces, grounding is everything – you’ve already got the floating off to space thing down pretty well!
Meanwhile, your ruling planet Neptune will be hanging out in your sign all year long, right where it loves to be. This can invoke powerful ideas that are either downright dreamy or crazy delusional, and it’s up to you to know the difference. This placement of Neptune can also make you seem especially dreamy to others and they may be more open to hearing your spiritual insights.
Finally, the upcoming 4-month Jupiter Retrograde will be heading backward in your 8th house of Business, helping you re-think the directions you want to go to support your financial situation this year. Choose very wisely. Whatever you decide to focus on has the potential to explode after Jupiter goes direct again in June!
