Sagittarius Yearly Forecast 2017

As we begin 2017, it's important to note that 2016 was a # 9 year in Astrology. The # 9 represents a high spiritual vibration, but also relates the end of a cycle and endings in general. So, 2016 was all about the end of one cycle. This year, 2017, is a #1 year. 2017 features new beginnings, independence, and therefore a total tearing down in order to rebuild. According to Numerology, 2017 will have a very sharp contrast in comparison to last year (2016) as where last year there were endings - the end of one cycle, now in the year of # 1, it's about new loves for some, new beliefs about love for others it's about justice and legal matters.

 In Numerology, the energies of these numbers are the equivalent of night and day. So expect a year of drastic new beginnings on a universal/world and personal level. As 2017 begins, Jupiter transits the marriage minded sign of Libra and the 7th House in Astrology. The 7th House rules marriage, legal partnerships, divorce and other legalities. Jupiter is also about our personal belief systems and with two eclipses in the sign of Leo this year, the House of passion, relationships, children, taking risks and passionate encounters are where it's at in 2017, the way we all see them, how we want them and our beliefs about love, children, creation could change drastically. Another possibility of this influence is how we all handle issues with tact and diplomacy. But with Jupiter in Libra, there could be differences of opinions in partnerships because Libra can be prone to indecision. It could be the best year ever to get married, set records, bring about changing beliefs about marriage/partnerships as Libra rules the 7th House (Marriages) and Jupiter rules expansion. Justice is another property concerned with Libra so, your own personal and intimate views about justice, and what it means to you will be another possibility due to Jupiter in the air sign of Libra.

 Jupiter- Your ruling planet represents (Abundance, good fortune, belief systems, spirituality and prosperity) continues its transit of Libra, your 11th House of friendships and groups as 2017 opens and where it has been since 9/9/16 and will remain in your 11th House friendships and your hopes of  until 10/10/17, when it enters the your 12th House of privacy, secrets and solitude, Sagittarius. During this transit of your ruling planet, Jupiter, in the compatible Air sign to your Fire element, the emphasis moves from friendships and hopes to fortune and shifts into your 12th House of secrets, addictions and what is kept hidden. The 12th House also promises luck with hospitals, institutions and yoga, mind body, disciplines, meditation, creating art behind the scenes and your best kept secrets, so there will be growth and movement in these areas as well for the last three months of 2017, Sagittarius.

Uranus (Surprises/the unexpected) continues 2017 in Aries, your 5th House of passion, children, love, gambling, risk taking and continues it's 9 year transit of your 5th House of passion and children until 2019. Uranus has been touring your 5th House of romance, children, creativity and taking risks since 2010 and remains there until 2019. By now, Sagittarius (You) have noticed how this planet of sudden out of blue events and interesting/eccentric partners have made their prescience felt. Have there been out of the blue surprises with a love interest? New interesting opportunities in love, friendship and business via eccentric types (Uranus component) or with children? with hobbies, gambling or taking risks? Whenever Uranus retrogrades in your 5th House, you might tend to experience unstable forces when it comes to love, passion, children and creative endeavors. The best way to deal with a Uranus retrograde is to simply go with the flow no matter how uncomfortable this erratic transit is by realizing that without change, there would be no growth. You will emerge a wider, more mature and educated individual before 2018 begins as Uranus will resume direct. Pace yourself in these areas for ideal results and try not to let little interferences escalate into bigger ones. Just expect some out of the blue events with regard to children, romance, a hobby, your creativity and or taking risks. Sagittarius rules gambling and casinos in Astrology, so taking risks and gambling are not foreign concepts to you, Sagittarius. 

As we wrap up this intense, drastically different year in 2017, Saturn, planet of lessons and prep work, will finally exit your 1st House and enter your 2nd House. You will be happy to say goodbye to this testing and time of maturity, deadlines, weird and strange happenings,  Sagittarius. Some of you might have grown tremendously and made incredible strides in their work life, met a soul mate or decided to end a relationship. You are stepping out of a testing time, so as long as you have the maturity and sensibility, the easier this transit can be. Saturn is not as scary as some make it out to be, we come to this planet to grow and learn and without learning, we would be stuck, so in a way it's always a good idea to have someone keeping you in check, especially with your wild nature!
