This is the year where you get to see if your Saturn business seeds will blossom. Most of the hard graft has been done, so now it’s time to get out there and network. You can also expect a busier social life than last year as you have more reason and opportunities to get out and about. This way you will start connecting with folk other than just work colleagues.
You will also want to spent more time with flesh and blood people and not just cyber business connections. Jupiter’s enterprising spirit continues its influence for most of the year, which should bring invites to far flung places. You are willing to explore off-the-beaten track in 2017. You can also see the bigger picture this year and not get so caught up in silly, local squabbles.
The pagan/priestess energy is also strong in 2017 and will call you to connect with mother earth and her sacred spaces. The eclipses will shake, rattle and roll your relationships, but in a good way so don’t despair! You might go through quite an image-change too. This could be through meeting a partner who is quite unlike your previous fancies. This is simply a reflection of your inner changes over the last few years.
Saturn in your friendship house might mean that you are attracted to more serious, dependable and older people rather than the Dionysian flaky hippies who let you down in the past. If you have a new child, this also could account for the change, as you have to be a responsible adult now. An interesting paradox is Lilith in your friendship zone too, which might seem contrary to the Saturn influence there. But what you will get is the wise crone and priestess Lilith and not the forbidden-fruit, harlot version!
Aquarius 2017 ~ Main Influences
Jupiter in Libra: Jan 1 to Oct 11. All aboard, all aboard!! Jupiter is at his best in your 9th house of expanding horizons, religion and philosophy. This is where you will want to climb up the highest mountain and take an eagle-eye perspective. As you are now able to see miles ahead, you find that you are better able to predict your own future. The pettiness of silly little arguments dissolves into the background and you can feel more optimistic that it’s all part of a grand plan.
There is serenity in feeling that there could be a higher power taking care of things. Events that occur at this time seem to have a special, destined feel about them and result from being able to tap into a universal intelligence. When we have that sense of the architect in the sky, there is less pressure that we have to work everything out ourselves. So after the intense soul-searching of Jupiter in heavy house 8, you are ready to emerge into this carefree, experimental phase.
