Happy New Year! Welcome to a year of newfound self-awareness and joy for life. 2016 brought changes to your life, which in 2017 take root and succeed. Wisdom gained last year enriched your ability to do good for someone very close and intimate. The bonds you formed are strengthened by appreciating the little things in life. The big things are uncontrollable, so you find joy in the littler pleasures. These help you take on the big things with finesse in 2017.
Mercury trips you up with revelations that leave you reeling from not knowing what happened. You are in the thick of Mercury Retrograde in the middle of New Year celebrations, as if there were no worst time! Or, did these revelations empower you with knowledge?
When Mercury Retrogrades, he physically goes backward in his orbit. His celestial retrace occurs in your Palace of Knowledge. Lately, everything you knew, or thought you knew, just came crumbling down. Mercury is the administrative god of the zodiac who creates order. He disapproved of your frame of knowledge, as there were certain revelations and truths which needed to be seen. Truths that come out help you to accept life unconditionally and create a new order of understanding.
Mercury already visited, and went Retrograde, in your Palace of Knowledge, Jan. 7th – 16, 2016; so this is your second wild ride in your search for truth. He organized your life with a clear sense of who you were, about the world, and your future. Or, so you thought. You made moves with certainty from the mistrust you had in the world. All that trust is out the door, and a new paradigm of trust gets built. Mercury unearths ugly truths, in order to give your understanding of the world doses of reality. He reveals these truths during his retrograde because he is a staunch perfectionist. He is intent on perfecting your self-expression, which can only be done by giving it truth upon which to base.
It is a new year, and though you may start with a less than ideal situation with Mercury Retrograde, you have a whole year to set your path straight (or gay, just be free and happy!), and make it ideal! Jan 5th – 12th, Mercury Retrogrades so far back so as to recede into the previous palace and seeks to enrich your mind with an improved value system. He seeks to expand your self-expression by giving it a value system; financially and spiritually. You can equate your skills and knowledge into profits and revenue! Tap into your natural talents and buy a mansion with all its potential wealth. Mercury assists you in using what you know to secure financial stability and a great sense of self-worth. Look to Jan 9th, to powerfully understand who you are and your priceless worth. A financial payout, a credit line, a stream of income, all get Mercury’s re-order-makeover. Empower yourself with gains in the bank and your mind.
Feel your new value system expressed when Mercury moves back into your Palace of Knowledge. From Jan 13th – Feb 7th, you express your truth authentically fearless. Your newfound self-confidence helps you to assert your truth. Your truth may seem simple, but it comes from intense lessons, at times hardships. Mercury helps you reclaim trust in your reality through a refreshed value on life. Education, writing, publishing, communications, letters, are all means by which you enrich your life. Pursue knowledge and truth in study or conversation; as both long term study and casual conversation have the power to impart life-changing truths.
Your self-expression is broadened after Mercury’s Retrograde in your Palace of Knowledge. The needs, desires and reams of 2016 differ in 2017 with clarity and an urgent call to act. The call may come with a new opportunity for education (as a student or teacher), in exploring a field of interest, learning a new language, or taking on a new life role, which comes with its own responsibilities. The chores you are responsible to complete require wise know-how and mature patience. If you are a new parent or siblings, your role in life fundamentally changes. If you are a new student or teacher, or professional in a new field, you have a very hopeful 2017 to which you can look forward to a smarter you. Your mind is seriously too powerful to waste in 2017.
The Sun showers powerful rays of hope to uplift you through Mercury’s ugly truths. He sets aflame your true self-expression, Dec 22nd – Jan 21st. He words in tandem with Mercury to plant the right seeds of knowledge. Mercury tills the grounds of your mind as the Sun plants the fundamental pillars to give your reality roots. This new reality will define the rest of your life, thus you are involved creating a new self-identity molded around the life’s new truth. On Jan 21st, your inner truth is expressed with words bespoken by your experience-based wisdom. Life is more than a theory; it s your personal practice to succeed at one thing: living our your truth. On the next day, Jan 22nd, you build your new value system and self-being into your home. The Sun enters your Palace of Home, Jan 22nd – Feb 18th, and your new identity sprouts new comfortable surroundings. Trust is restored after a monumental Mercury Retrograde. Your outlook on life may have spiraled, but you are aware of your truth better than before. From the chaos, the Sun and Mercury helped you sort the valuable and worthy. You build upon that to create a better reality for yourself, and those most important in your life. This care and attention takes roots in your home, as you explore the potential of your domesticity. You are in a special place in life to create a home order that nurtures life. You can touch based with your mother, especially if you are a first-time parent. Family and your childhood memories get you reveal how much they conditioned your truth today. And, vice versa. I hope this horoscope inspires you to rekindle love in all your family relationships, and harmony at home.
The ultra beautiful, Venus, makes 2017 ooze with home improvements and magic. She tours your Palace of Home from Dec 8th – Jan 4th, and the harmony of your abode is restored. She makes the entry into 2017 ripe with family love, childhood nostalgia, and great home upgrades. As she makes your home idyllic and your connections with family open and honest, you are reminded to take joy in the litter things. By Jan 4th, Venus proves your merit for a better home life, which arrives in time to restore fun and happiness in life. She helps you officialize a lease, refinance your home, make a downpayment on your dream home. When she enters your Palace of Enjoyment from Jan 5th – Feb 4th she spices up your life from the bed to the air! If you are hoping to get pregnant, hallelujah! She activates your love of life, and indulges you with events, parties, romance and sex. This is a time to reconnect with the inner-child in you and have fun playing and getting to know your child, niece, nephew, or little sibling. You can also remember your childhood dream, which Venus re-inspires you to believe it is not too late to follow your heart.
Venus will be just a few degrees behind her lover, Mars, the god of war. In her efforts to spice up your life with passion, Mars crusades to make it your profession. She inspires you to trust in your heart, as Mars empowers you to be in its daily pursuit. On Jan 28th, Mars begins a series of choices and actions to become a master in your hobby or passion. This allows you to improve yourself by taking steps in your day to make a profit or living by becoming an expert in your craft. Your craftsmanship interests can be creative like writing, acting, painting, sewing, etc. It can also be in psychology, medicine, law, criminology, management…you get the idea. You can focus on your health and begin a diet, an exercise regimen, a gym or studio membership, or anything that improves the physical experience of your body. You can rehabilitate yourself into good health by quitting an addiction or starting a new and improved daily habit. Mars is keen on establishing a strong wellbeing with which to prosper in 2017.
The Moon’s emotional tide flows in your wellbeing, and ebbs in your sense of self. As truths are revealed by Mercury Retrograde, you feel trustworthy towards your intuition. Something within you seemed to sense what was happening. Jan 5th, the Waxing Crescent stops by in your Palace of Wellbeing, suggesting this day will be the day you start the pursuit of your passion. You are ready to improve the situation of your life and those closest to you. Your sense of responsibility over your wellbeing and your posse or family helps to make important changes. Venus and Mercury are both making major moves around this day, as previously mentioned, compounding the impact upon your day to day. Mars will soon visit, as well, suggesting Jan 5th is a major foreshadowing of the types of responsibilities you will face, and the sort of daily routine you will have. Specifically, how you nurture your personal and others’ wellbeing as it is underlined by the new value you have for one’s inner truth. Jupiter, the god of good luck, sits in perfect polarity to the crescent, adding to the power of this moon. He ensures that your peace of mind is restored through which you see clearly who you are now and ultimately meant to be. He opens the roads to follow your heart and trust that no matter what you will live your ideal life one day, sooner than you even think.
The crescent progress into a Full Moon on Jan 13th and dances into your Palace of Purpose. She builds on the flow of that crescent’s wave and under tidal force, she shows you your destiny. You are ever smarter and better as you solidify your value system into something to in which to believe. The authenticity you discover in your self is full of innate potential. Under the Full Moon’s twinkling truth, you aspire to your own truth. She helps you by showing you what is possible, and the vividness with which you see it fills your chase with passion.
The Full Moon recedes into a Waning Crescent to bring closure to an ugly year, and launch a beautiful new one. On Jan 19th, the Waning Crescent visits your Palace of Ego, where she infuses serenity. Your sense of self broadened last year because of fundamental changes to your life, which made it bigger and broader. You are more responsible now and the crescent’s serenity alights your mind. Your self-expression is certifiably grown upon this date when your personality, traits and qualities take on the wisdom from life. Your practice on life is from a theory based on experience, not words from someone else. Your practice of life on this date is individuated from others because life is not a practice. It is a rehearsal, debut, long run, and a closing act, all at once. Your role will be played by no one but yourself, which I hope you are inspired to play out passionately authentic.
The first month of 2017 ends with focus on your home. The New Moon of Jan 29th, visits your Palace of Home and with it you start your new life on earth. The home, apartment, condo, upgrade or renovation you have long hoped for is yours. The ideal home and domesticity you aspired to create for yourself and your (future or present) family take shape. As she disrobes and goes naked into the night, she takes you along so you feel passionate about your role on earth. Home and earth are both your sweet home, thus allow this New Moon to revitalize your freedom to live freely expressed and in comfort!
I wish you so much luck as you forge what seems to be a whole new life! Life can feel scary because the stars are always throwing troubles and trials our way. However, you are not totally without control, as you will see this month. Only you have the power to take what is given and happens to you, and from it all make your dreams come true. If I can help in any way, please don’t hesitate to contact. I would love to hear from you and help as much as I can.
May all your dreams and wishes come true for 2017!
Love till the end of time!
Star Queen Adonis
