JAN - FEB

H O RO S C O P E 2 0 1 7 ARIES ( 21 March - 19 April )

This period is one of personal discovery, career developments, and increased opportunities to communicate with others in satisfying ways. Those of you involved in communications will reach a broader audience. This is a time to go after your dreams, for certain, but do your best to avoid alienating people or things that you normally hold dear to your heart. This period could either show a relationship developing to the next level of commitment, or perhaps the opportunity of a once in a lifetime relationship coming into your life. Favorable Dates : Jan 3, 7, 12, 16, 21, 25 Feb 1, 9, 10, 18, 19, 27 Favorable Colors : Red & Yellow

TAURUS ( 20 April – 20 May ) Your personality is more obviously expansive, exuberant and enthusiastic in this period; and your natural optimism and generosity are heightened. This period has the potential for being a relaxed, fortunate and hopeful time for you. You are greeting life with a fresh, can-do attitude. You may receive news that furthers your goals, or you have an opportunity to communicate your ideas to others in a grand way. Help seems to be magically there when you need it and your own awesome strength and faith is always there to draw upon. Favorable Dates : Jan 5, 8, 14, 17, 23, 26 Feb 4, 6, 13, 15, 22, 24 Favorable Colors : White & Purple

GEMINI ( 21 May – 20 June ) This is truly a period of self-discovery.. You will come face to face with what it is that offers you hope and optimism as well as that which fuels your drive. Working hard at self-improvement ultimately leads to replacing your old spirit with a regenerated one. You will be one step closer to knowing where you are headed, and you will have re-built faith in yourself. You let go of self-defeating attitudes that have been holding you back, and you find new ways to nurture faith, hope and vision. Favorable Dates : Jan 2, 4, 11, 13, 20, 22 Feb 2, 8, 11, 17, 20, 26 Favorable Colors : Yellow & Blue

CANCER ( 21 June - 22 July ) It’s a good period for collaboration as wherever you go you bring a sense of peace, balance and harmony. It’s also a good time to be dipping your toe in the water of new projects. Without a care in the world, you are heading down a very clear path, even if you are still at the beginning of the journey. Feeling as free as a feather in the wind, you can’t wait to see where life takes you. You just know that things will work out, no matter where you go. Favorable Dates : Jan 1, 5, 10, 14, 19, 23 Feb 1, 9, 10, 18, 19, 27 Favorable Colors : White & Red

LEO ( 23 July - 22 August ) Your personal philosophy will be changing, and this period give you a push towards adopting beliefs that truly work for you in the real world. You are becoming more adept at understanding others, and growing in patience, dignity and humanity. You are learning to understand yourself and what you can give to others. Charity, giving anonymously, volunteering, and helping others without expectation of reward will be most satisfying during this cycle. However, there may be people trying to “buy your friendship” with lots of praise and lavish gifts. Favorable Dates : Jan 6, 8, 15, 17, 24, 26 Feb 6, 7, 15, 16, 24, 25 Favorable Colors : Purple & Grey

VIRGO ( 23 August - 22 September ) It’s time to take control of your life. There are at least a few creative ideas kicking around in your skull, so choose one and run with it. Right now, a good course of action is to strengthen your reserves. If you do, and you follow this path with dignity and determination, you are likely to have an outcome which will bring financial benefits and security too. A vigorous, dramatic and exciting period for romance occurs from 23rd January. You could also see awesome opportunities to further your personal goals. Favorable Dates : Jan 1, 4, 10, 13, 19, 22 Feb 4, 8, 13, 17, 22, 26 Favorable Colors : White & Yellow

270

Issue 7


LIBRA ( 23 September - 22 October ) The need to re-structure and re-organize your life will become glaringly apparent.. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities in this period,. You will have an altogether different perspective on life and are not inclined much to sweat the small stuff. .Although you may not see immediate results for your efforts, important groundwork can be laid for the future. You might need to guard against becoming too full of yourself or overly self-interested, however. There is also a risk of over - indulgence and other forms of extreme behaviour. Favorable Dates : Jan 4, 6, 13, 15, 20, 24 Feb 1, 4, 10, 13, 19, 22 Favorable Colors : Red & Green

SCORPIO ( 23 October - 21 November ) Your income is likely to increase, and there may be an opportunity to improve your future financial situation. It should be a profitable and productive period if you avoid the pitfalls of overspending, of course! You are likely to feel more confident and enthusiastic about your ability to earn a living and you may choose to develop your talents in order to boost your earning power. This is a time to go after your dreams, but do your best to avoid alienating people that you normally hold dear to your heart. Favorable Dates : Jan 3, 4, 12, 13, 21, 22 Feb 4, 7, 13, 16, 22, 25 Favorable Colors : Blue & Yellow

SAGITTARIUS ( 22 November - 21 Decenber ) Some of you may have to make some critical decisions due to situations in your life that force you to make choices between career and family goals. Others may be promoted or their career takes a new direction. The challenge is to find a healthy balance–to improve home life, while at the same time tending to the demands of your career. Some financial insecurity may have been part of the picture. Meditation and retreats may be particularly beneficial to you now, acting to regenerate and invigorate you. Favorable Dates : Jan 1, 2, 10, 11, 19, 20 Feb 1, 3, 10, 12, 19, 21 Favorable Colors : White & Blue

CAPRICORN ( 22 December - 19 January ) This period in your life is a time for building a solid foundation. There is definitely potential for you to live an abundant life but there needs to be a mental shift. Understand that moderation right now is necessary for your spiritual growth and your physical body as well. Trips could be especially rewarding for you–they can provide a pleasant breather from pressures in your life. You learn about your limitations at this time, which, ironically, offers you more freedom in the long run!
