All Signs: In 2017, Jupiter, the planet of wealth, good fortune, joy and wisdom will be in Libra for most of the year. This will promote an interest in the arts and beauty in general. If you’ve been hankering to redecorate your digs, this is the year to do it. Jupiter in Libra will also increase your success in partnerships and close friendships by helping you appreciate what it’s like to walk a mile in someone else’s wedgies. It encourages an open-minded approach to help you see all sides of an issue. It will also help you see the wisdom of moderation and taking the middle road, which is an appreciation that generally comes with age. (Although I think a big advantage of getting older is you see how you turned out.)
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This year lucky Jupiter sits opposite you in your House of Partnerships and Marriage. This will increase your awareness of your close friendships and partnerships primarily because you will have greater empathy and understanding of where that other person is coming from. Naturally, this understanding will help you to have a better relationship with this person. This placement of Jupiter comes to your sign only once every 12 years; and it is the best placement for an Aries to get married. And yes, of course it will come again, but you will be 12 years older. You will never again be as young as you are today.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
It’s important to know that the great advantage that you have this year is that you can improve your job. For starters, you can improve the duties of your existing job, or you can improve the surroundings where you work, or you can somehow get rid of anyone unpleasant in your work scene. Alternatively, you can get a better job. Many of you will also have more job-related travel this year. The main thing to know is that you have a chance to improve your health and your daily work this year – and this chance is better than any opportunity you have had in over a decade. Obviously, you have to use it! Why wouldn’t you?
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
This year, Jupiter will amplify the part of your chart that is all about fun, games, sports, vacations, playful activities with children, the arts, the hospitality industry, the entertainment world and anything to do with love and romance. Flirtations will abound! Opportunities for new love and romance will be greater than they have been in over a decade. Most definitely, this is your turn to enjoy a serious vacation. In addition to all this fun and pleasure, your own sense of creativity will be heightened as well, which means artists will be productive and all of you will enjoy expressing your artistic talents.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
In 2017, you have the best chance in over a decade to create a happy home. Family relationships will improve because family members will be more mutually generous. Many families will increase through birth, marriage or adoption. When it comes to the bricks and mortar of your home, this too, will bring you a great advantage because you have the best chance in over a decade to make money from real estate or to move to a bigger and better home whether you buy, build or rent your new digs. If you have the money, please be aware that you have a great opportunity to buy real estate or invest in real estate or improve where you live in 2017.
Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
This year is the year Leos discover the power of positive thinking. If you think about it, your thoughts become words, and the words become deeds, and the deeds soon becomes habit, and habit eventually hardens into character. This means that you are your thoughts! When you are full of positive ideas and positive thoughts – you are a positive person who will attract positive situations to you and people will want to be in your presence. It’s that simple. This year you are going to be that kind of person because you will think big, you will be optimistic and you will be upbeat. And yes, your daily pace will increase. Wow – busy and exciting!
Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
In financial terms, you are the lucky winner in 2017 because you have a strong chance to boost your income this year. You might get a raise in your current job. You might get a better paying job. If you’re unemployed – you might get a job! And some of you will make more because you start making money on the side. However, there are other ways that you will feel more affluent and flush. Some of you will actually spend your own money and buy yourself beautiful things that make you feel rich and pampered. For different reasons, your assets may increase because whatever happens – you will feel wealthier in 2017. Ka-ching!
Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
It is your good fortune to have Jupiter in your sign this year. Jupiter is in your sign only once every 12 years. The last time was in 2005, and the next time will be 2028-2029. It’s not a common thing. Therefore, appreciate this benefit and make the best use of it. When Jupiter is in your sign, you feel happier and more content with life because life seems to flow more easily. You are fortunate in personal terms as well as your relationships with others. In fact, people will be drawn to you along with favourable circumstances, which means you can take advantage of situations. In a nutshell – it’s your lucky year! (Surely this calls for a new outfit.)
Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Once every 12 years, Jupiter travels through the part of your chart the concerns spirituality and your inner world. Because Jupiter is associated with wisdom and learning, as well as world religions, you will undergo experiences that shape you from within. You will have a deeper, richer, interior world, which ultimately affects everything because whatever is going on in the inside eventually is expressed on the outside. You will become a do-gooder and want to help others. And just as “what goes around comes around,” you will receive benefit in October, when lucky Jupiter enters your sign for the first time since 2006. And it will stay there for a year! Yay me!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
As a strong social component, Jupiter pertains to jurisdiction, the church, universities and places of knowledge and learning. It holds sway over the tapestry that shapes and defines society. For your sign in 2017, Jupiter will bring increased popularity with friends. It will encourage your involvement in groups, classes and clubs. Your idealism will be aroused and you might want to become involved in social reform or work for charitable organizations. It will encourage you to have loftier goals; not only that, it will encourage you to have bigger more ambitious goals. Jupiter is your ruler and you are very comfortable when it is in Libra. In many ways, this year will unfold relatively effortlessly.
Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
In 2017, lucky Jupiter is at the top of your chart making you look good to others, especially people in power and authority. When Jupiter is sitting in such a special place, you look really good to others. You look friendly, appealing, wise and affluent. And you look successful! This means that the details of your life will substantiate this. You will be successful in your job or your career to be able to earn this kind of reputation in 2017. That’s why this is a year of promotions, accolades and praise for Capricorns. And for those who do not get a promotion, instead, they will have a chance to explore healing, medicine, the law, higher education or travel. This is a fantastic year for you!
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
In 2017, Jupiter will bring you travel opportunities. You might already be planning a trip. If you have been contemplating a major trip – this is the year to do it. At a deeper level, Jupiter wants you to expand your experience of life, so not only will you have opportunities to travel, you will also have marvellous opportunities to go to school or take classes or advanced training in something. You will also love going to any post education school because learning will be a joy. Many of you will be more involved with people from other countries and different cultures. You might even learn a new language. Because Jupiter will be in your fellow Air sign, this will be an easy year for you.
Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
In astrology, Jupiter is known as the Great Benefic because it denotes wealth, joy, ease, comfort and wisdom. Its influence is beneficial. In 2017, lucky Jupiter will be in one of your Money Houses. Oh my! Specifically, Jupiter will be in the House of other people’s money (versus your own earnings). This means it will be easy for you to get money from other people and other sources. For example, you might get a mortgage much more easily this year or a loan. You might also benefit indirectly because your partner gets a bonus or a raise. You will also have a chance to use the wealth and resources of others. This is a very fortunate year for you, indeed. (Money is so handy when you want to buy things.)
