2017 has a very ‘nest-building’ feel to it. This is due to the combined influence of growth in the home the need to organise your very busy work schedule. This is a year when you have to grow up very quickly if you are usually a bit of a hedonist. Friends will try very hard to tempt you away and might succeed at first. However, as the year progresses it will be increasingly difficult to amputate that pen, paint-brush, hammer, wet-wipe or keyboard from your hand.
You will also find yourself pulled toward older, wiser guides who will help steer you away from any destabilising Lilith forbidden fruit. There is quite a bit of ‘inner work’ eclipse energy for you this year which examines your self-worth, ethics, morals and shameful feelings. This adds to the need to take responsibility for your life-direction and any wrong turns.
In 2017 you might have to look truthfully at addictions, and the health problems that arise from them. This year is about getting your ‘house’ in order both literally and symbolically. Your body is your temple and may be due for a detox, unplugging from cyberspace and sleeping on the earth would be good for that too. One of the biggest influences of the year might be an older mentor who really helps you advance in your career. You will really need to be fit and on the ball as they put your through your paces and pile on the challenges. As a result your health improves and you have to get to bed at a decent hour. This mentor/boss becomes quite a grounding influence as you learn to pace yourself and get organised. You will enjoy the sanctuary of your home this year anyway as you have been able to make it more comfortable and visually pleasing also.
Cancer 2017 ~ Main Influences
Jupiter in Libra: Jan 1 to Oct 11. If there ever was a time to buy a house then this is it! Generous Jupiter should grant you the mother of all accommodation. Property investment is classic behaviour at this time. But it’s not all about building Trump towers. A fantastic sense of pleasure is felt by being at home with your family. Your clan base is enriched in every way and you will want to spend as much time as possible in it. If there have been problems on the domestic front, then they are more easily smoothed out during this blessed time. Relationships with your parents also fall under Jupiter’s charm, so bad ones can be patched up to a certain extent and good ones just become super generous and loving.
Parents might offer to finance buying your first home or help in some other way like with decorating or building work. Otherwise there is a wonderful sense of feeling rooted and content, even if you don’t own your own home. Feathering your nest in other ways is achieved by making your room aesthetically pleasing. So buying flowers, crystals, soft-furnishings and works of art help you feel relaxed and contented in your environment. You are creating a sacred space, your urban or suburban temple. The surrounding land gives you immense pleasure too, wether it is by walking in the countryside or spending time making your garden beautiful.
