How the sun influences your 2017 horoscope
In the year of the sun, the sun will give vitality, activity, and energy to all of the signs. The sun spends about a month in each sign of the zodiac, before that sign’s birth month dawns. This is a time when the specific sign receives special care and attention. The sun gives us strength and is our source of life. It's rejuvenating heat lightens and warms our hearts, supporting us throughout the whole year.
Many things will be set into motion in 2017, and - of course - the rest of the planets will be playing their own parts as well. The militant year of Mars is coming to an end, and now we will see the dawn of a sunny, calm, and focused time. How can each individual sign of the zodiac benefit from the year of the sun, and which planets will bring luck, love, and professional success?
Lucky signs of the year
According to the 2017 yearly horoscope, the luckiest sign this year will absolutely be Gemini! Jupiter will be forming a lucky trine with your sign until October. Libra will also be enjoying a blessed period at the same time since Jupiter will be lingering directly in the sign. And Aquarians will also be able to enjoy the gifts of Jupiter through the middle of October. For these signs, the focus should be on opening up your eyes and being watchful; Jupiter loves to grant little signs of its attention that can bring great joy to our lives, for instance in the form of a warm friend at our side, walks in the sun, little signs of affection from a beloved, or special moments with friends and family... Perhaps it would be a good idea to start a Jupiter diary to help you count all the happiest moments and times of the year 2017.
Positive days are also on the way for...
The 2017 yearly horoscope also promises a good year for Taurus; the stars are looking down very favorably on this sign, and the positive burst of energy at the start of the year promises a good start to the year of the sun. Good times are coming in both the realms of professional life and partnership. These will be expressed throughout the year. Virgos will be enjoying an especially productive professional phase between June and October. Then good results at work will follow thanks to Mercury - ranging from promotions to an exciting change of jobs. Anything is possible!
The passion of Venus will be taking hold of Scorpio with great force. This means a beautiful and tender period in love, but it comes with the moodiness of Venus - there’s a little bit of everything for Scorpio in the 2017 yearly horoscope. At the start of the year, Venus will treat Cancer very well, a sign that treasures harmony and love. Aries will also be getting to know Venus from her good side. At both the beginning and end of the year, Venus will also be celebrating a fiery and love-struck period with Capricorn. Perhaps she intends to give them a great boost of energy and exhilaration - at the end of the year, the critical and strict Saturn will be focused intensively on Capricorn.
Saturn in Sagittarius
Sagittarians won’t have things quite so easy - Saturn will be using its force to affect the sign the entire year. Saturn symbolizes inhibiting factors, moralistic thinking, and the past, and it always shows us where we need to make a change. Now, it’s up to Sagittarians to see these energies as a time to learn. Luckily, all the other planets are here to help out; they can jump in with benevolent intent, which is why the 2017 yearly horoscope can predict an informative and exciting year for Sagittarius.
Leo & Pisces
In contrast to Sagittarius, Pisces will experience a relatively balanced period. There will be some love, some job success, and plenty of energy; from time to time, the 2017 horoscope predicts happy moments for the sign. Each planet will be playing its part for Pisces - the year promises to be a diverse and varied time. Things look similar for Leo. The sign will start early, in February, with a high point in love for the entire year. Thanks to the stars, the sign will have a year enriched with many different topics.
Jupiter: Until 10.10, the lucky planet will be in Libra. After 10.10, it will then move to Scorpio for the rest of the year.
Saturn: Saturn will be remaining in Sagittarius for almost the entire year. It will only switch to Capricorn on 20.12.
2017: The year of the sun
The sun awakens our drive for self-actualization. The 2017 yearly horoscope predicts that we will enjoy good opportunities to discover what we really want.
The sun is the center of our power.
Without the sun, our star, there would be no life on our planet. It is the center of our power. And we don’t just need the light to continue to exist, physically - we also need it for our well-being. A long winter with little sunshine can quickly affect our moods.
The Earth takes exactly 365 days, 6 hours, 9 minutes, and 9.54 seconds to orbit the sun one time. During this time, the sun passes through the entire scope of zodiac signs, as seen from our vantage point on the earth, spending around one month in each sign. Due to the path of the Earth’s orbit, leap years, and other phenomena, the signs of the zodiac cycle somewhat differently each year. The divisions between the signs that we’re used to are just guidelines; we have to look at a 2017 planet calendar for each birth year (or simply look to the so-called Ephemerides). If you don’t know how to do this year, or if you’d like to double-check what you’ve found, you can use our ascendant calculator.
The sun sign symbolizes our personality.
Just as the sun forms the foundation of our Earthly life, so do our sun signs, also called a star sign or zodiac sign, form the foundation of our personalities. The time and place of our birth determine our sun signs. The sign stands for the self, the spirit, and for our personalities. While ascendants stand for how others perceive us, our star signs show our innermost selves. Our star signs show what we want from our lives, and what our personal goals are. Self-actualization is the true focus of the star sign. Our sun signs stand for our consciousness, in contrast to the moon, which symbolizes the subconscious.
The sun, as the source of our energy, also stands for our physical and emotional well-being, and is, therefore, a key factor in our vitality, activity, and life force.
Sun transits are especially exciting if the sun forms an aspect to a planet in our radix, and if this planet forms an aspect with another planet. You can read about such constellations, for instance, in your personal future horoscope. But they can also be very interesting if they are forming an aspect to our radix sun. In general, we can say that favorable sun transits activate our life force and increase our self-confidence, while difficult transits foster arrogance or, in contrast, psychic instability.
Desire for self-realization
According to the 100-year calendar of Mauritius Knauer (1613 or 1614-1664), the year 2017 is the year of the sun. What does this mean for us? Well, a year that stands under the sign of the sun could be a time when our self-confidence will grow. It seemingly offers us the opportunity to grow beyond our own bounds - however, in reality, the sun only awakens what was already within us all along. The desire to realize long-cherished goals may become stronger. Perhaps it will be a year when we make plans concrete, or when we finally become aware of what we truly want. It is a year of self-discovery and development. Perhaps, in the year of Mars and in the heat of battle, we were not quite clear on where our paths were headed. In the year of the sun, however, our activities and initiative are likely to become more directed and more conscious.
The year of the sun
Every 7th year: 1989, 1996, 2003, 2010, 2017, 2024, 2031 etc.
Of course, anywhere there is light, there must also be shadows. According to the 2017 yearly horoscope, we must be very careful not to lose our grounded attitude and not to become smug. Anyone who’s too convinced they’re on the right path can quickly become arrogant. We should continue to remain open to other viewpoints and stay tolerant. Each person is unique, and an amazing creature in their own right. The sun stands for exactly this kind of attitude, perhaps more than any planet.
