Aries
March 21 to April 19


General
Step into the lead, Aries — it's where you've always belonged. In 2017, a two-year series of eclipses will hit the Leo-Aquarius axis, calling you forth as the commander and stoking your activist spirit. With a breathtaking five planets pulsing through your sign in March, the crown is definitely calling. Think globally, act locally: You could do something epic at the grassroots level this year. Powerful partnerships could also emerge — in love, business, or creative collabs — so you won't have to handle all that responsibility by your lonesome.

Love
Ready to switch that single ladies' dance to a sexy paso doble? 2017 could be a record-breaking year for Rams when it comes to romantic relationships. With lucky Jupiter flowing through Libra and Scorpio — your partnership zones — this could be the year when you meet The One, commit to an exclusivity clause, or get engaged and married. But Jupiter is also a liberated planet, so you won't take kindly to anyone controlling you. A mate who respects your independent spirit is a must. You could find love while traveling or get smitten with a cutie from a different culture. Opposites definitely attract in 2017, so don't get hung up on having a type. Coupled Rams should take a major vacation together! Some Aries will leave relationships — especially if they feel confining. But don't bail before delving into the issues: With Venus retrograde in Aries from March 4 to April 2, you could find a deeper connection with a few sessions of couples therapy. Eclipses in Leo, and your romance house, on February 10 and August 21 could also bring rapid developments in the love department.

Prosperity
#GuruGoals: In 2017, you may be asked to teach about something you've thoroughly nailed — or study alongside a master teacher. Slow and steady Saturn is rounding out its third and final year through Sagittarius and your house of higher education and entrepreneurial ventures. Study to keep your skill set up to snuff, whether it's a degree program, specialized seminars, or even teacher training. Don't rush into anything or expand too quickly. If you own a business — or have such aspirations — this will be a year of measured growth. Some Aries could even have their work published or receive a grant for a passion project. The new moon in Aries on March 27 will be a good day for a small launch, but with Venus retrograde, test-pilot ideas to a smaller audience first. Same from April 20 to May 5, when Mercury is retrograde in your sign. With lucky Jupiter in your partnership zones all year, you could find success as half of a dynamic duo! The best news? On December 19, solid Saturn will move on to Capricorn and your CEO zone for three years, which could bring some amazing and career-defining moments.

Wellness
Buddy workouts will keep you motivated in 2017, Aries. Find a fitness partner who shares your competitive spirit — or hire a private instructor or trainer who will push you to new heights. Couples' dance classes can also get you in amazing shape this year. When Jupiter enters Scorpio on October 10, spice things up with something a bit more seductive, like a pole-dancing or burlesque workshop — they are more strenuous than you think!

Taurus
April 20 to May 20


General
Wax on, wax off, Taurus grasshopper. In 2017, you'll grow exponentially by grounding yourself in routines. Shake them up, though. Jupiter — the planet of adventure, risk-taking, and education — will be piloting through your systematic sixth house, lending some dynamism to your daily drills. Feeling stuck on the treadmill of life? Stop complaining and do something to actively take yourself in a different direction. Enroll in specialized training or a degree program — or apprentice alongside an executive so you can move into a new role at your 9-5. In your free time, the great outdoors will be your playground. Stay true to your earth-sign nature, Bull: Plant a garden or join a community plot, rent rustic cabins for your vacations, and get involved with environmental causes.

Love
Cautious, conservative Saturn is wrapping up a slow — and kind of agonizing — three-year tour through Sagittarius and your intimate, erotic eighth house. Perhaps your mojo's been in slow-mo or you've had to deal with some roadblocks in relationships. But, oh, the golden lessons you've learned! (Like tempering jealousy and screening out the troubled types, say.) 2017 offers a chance to reboot your libido. Make more room in your schedule for rest (nothing kills sex drive like sleep deprivation). Move your body in sensual ways like yoga and dancing. And if you're in a relationship, consciously create blocks of time for communication, logging off of digital devices so you can focus on each other. Saturn can bring stability to relationships in 2017. Some Bulls could get married (even if you elope) — especially after October 10, when adventurous Jupiter swings into Scorpio and your committed-partnership zone for a year. Already attached? This is the year to invest wisely together: You might buy a home or open a joint bank account. Ready to break free from a bad romance? With Venus on an extended tour through your transitional 12th house — from February 3 to May 16 — you'll have the courage to cut toxic ties. But don't make any rash moves during the retrograde from March 4 to April 15, like walking out on a stable partner because you're bored or unsatisfied. Couples therapy could be deeply healing if there is still any hope to hang on to!

Prosperity
With wise Saturn in your house of investments and big money until December 19, you could put a good chunk of cash into your retirement portfolio or start your first Roth IRA. This doesn't have to happen all at once. Follow the rule of "if you don't see it, you won't spend it" and earmark a specified amount of each paycheck to be auto-transferred into savings as well as higher-yielding investments like mutual funds. Some Bulls could also make bank through royalties, a commission check, consignment sales, or even an inheritance. Learn how to save it for a sunny day. With two eclipses in your home sector on February 10 and August 21, you could buy a home or your first apartment. The Aquarius eclipse on August 7 could bring a major promotion or prestigious client. If you want to increase your earnings, Jupiter encourages you to be more "intrapreneurial" early this year and act like a self-starter at work. But things could get busy fast and you might even have to hire an assistant!

Wellness
Health is wealth in 2017, Taurus. Moving your body means clearing your head — and that translates into greater productivity. With Jupiter in your wellness zone until October 10, find a gym or studio near work so you can sneak in noon classes or get your cardio in on your way home from the office. Natural healing will call your name, so don't forget that food is "medicine." Clean eating (with the occasional pizza party thrown in) and even supplements that help with digestion, like probiotics or digestive enzymes, can ensure that your body receives all the good fuel you're giving it.

Gemini
May 21 to June 20


General
Lights, camera, action! You're a total scene-stealer in 2017, Gemini — no apologies, please. You've earned the right to all this attention by developing such a dynamic personality. And the world is loving it. Is it time to refine your image or create a signature style? Jupiter's retrograde from February 6 to June 9 gives you a window for sartorial experimentation. A luxe upgrade may be in order — or more of a rock-star edge. (But skip the tattoos or pixie cuts while style-maker Venus is in reverse from March 4 to April 15.) Develop your stage presence, whether you're taking an acting class or filming your own TED talk. Strengthen your leadership skills, too. In 2017, you could find yourself in the captain's seat more often than you may be fully comfortable with. Don't back down from the crown — but don't cover up fears with bluster. Working cooperatively is the name of the game, and power player Saturn may serve up your perfect match before December 19.

Love
Cupid is very much in your corner in 2017, Gemini, a year that could go down as legendary in your romantic history books. With daring Jupiter in your passionate fifth house until October 10, take more chances in the amorous arena. A cross-cultural connection could be sublime; you could even meet your soul mate while traveling. This year could also bring big news to announce, like an engagement or pregnancy — and don't be surprised if it all happens super-fast. Some Geminis will enjoy rewriting the rules — especially during eclipse season in February and August. That could involve dating multiple people, open relationships, or eloping. But stern Saturn is rounding out the final of three years in your commitment zone, so forget about "keeping it casual." It's committed or bust for you in 2017 — and you could finally make it work with an ex or hash out a seemingly irreconcilable difference with your S.O. while Mercury is retrograde from December 3 to 22.

Prosperity
You're so money this year, Gemini — especially when you open your mouth! Prestigious opportunities will pop up at every turn, and you'll easily surround yourself with influential people. Gemini performers could get that breakthrough audition or be booked to play at the festival of 2017. Gemini writers could also earn a windfall, thanks to the eclipses. Check out self-publishing tools, like Amazon CreateSpace or Smashwords — but don't rule out getting a deal via an agent. No matter your industry, you could really make a name for yourself this year. Stern Saturn demands that terms and contracts be clearly defined. Make a budget for legal fees, so you can draft a contract with that record label or the friend with whom you start the jewelry line. Given how fast you can blow up this year, you don't want to leave the terms up to chance and risk losing money or creating a rift in your relationships. Happily employed? Create more of a leadership role for yourself within the company. Bossing people around will be pretty fun in 2017. When Jupiter enters your systematic sixth house for a year on October 10, you'll yearn for more structure, whether it comes from a 9-5 job or a roster of stable, steady clients.

Wellness
In 2017, you need exercise to feel like play — and a fitness buddy will also keep you on point. You might even join a dance troupe or get involved in a competitive sport. Watch your back! With Jupiter in your fifth house, you could overstretch or overdo it with the weights trying to achieve those CrossFit goals. Preventative medicine keeps you well-tuned. See if your health insurance covers a few massages or chiropractic care to deal with an old back issue. Jupiter in Scorpio will reawaken your wellness warrior on October 10. Switch it up from mojitos to green "nojitos" then!

Cancer
June 21 to July 22


General
With lucky Jupiter nesting in your domestic sector until October 10, you're in your home-loving element this year. Family, finding (and decorating) the perfect apartment, and even learning how to cook like a pro will be a big focus. Have you gotten caught in the caretaker trap? Liberated Jupiter helps you take on a more independent role within your family and friend circles. Female friends will give you life in 2017, and you could widen your circle of besties — and even take an epic trip together before the fall! With Saturn in your structured sixth house until December 19, take everything you do one step at a time.

Love
Next stop: The cohabitation station? Cozy Cancers will get the urge to play house in 2017. If you're not ready to move in together, clear out a drawer and give your S.O. a spare key. Meeting the parents and even buying property together could be in the stars this year — you're just craving that level of closeness. Warning: With Venus retrograde from March 4 to April 15, you could get caught up in an ill-advised coworker crush or feel like Beyoncé's "Daddy Lessons" is the soundtrack to your love life. Nothing a little therapy can't handle — and err on the side of caution. On February 10, the first in a two-year series of eclipses will arouse your second house of sensuality and your erotic eighth. Streamline your schedule so you can spend more time in bed — if only to zap the sleep deprivation that's interfering with your sex drive. Although you'll love staying in, when Jupiter sails into Scorpio and your passionate fifth house on October 10, you'll feel like being out and about. Power-couple fantasies could become your end-of-year reality.

Prosperity
Change-maker Uranus spends its final full year in your career sector, gearing you up for some huge developments. But slow and steady still wins the race in 2017, Cancer — and you're already taking steps in the right direction. All year long, stable Saturn will trek through your systematic sixth house, where it's on the final year of its tour of Sagittarius that began on December 23, 2014. Although you may not see overnight victories, have faith. The finish line is closer than you realize. And if you're willing to burn a little midnight oil and even pay some dues, you will set yourself up for some major success in 2018. Don't be a martyr. Spring for support or ask the boss if you can hire a temp to help with any unwieldy assignments. Cash will already start to come in thanks to three money-boosting eclipses on February 10, August 7 and August 21. These may involve a new job or a promotion; or, you could get investment or grant funding for a project. But it does little good if you burn it as fast as you earn it, Cancer. Learn about investing, and automate transfers from your paychecks into savings and retirement accounts. If you don't see it, you won't spend it, Cancer. Ready to own? This year could also bring a winning real estate purchase for you!

Wellness
The connection between food and mood is undeniable, Cancer. It's true: You are what you eat. If you're still subsisting on packaged food and too many sweets, this is the year to clean up your diet. Think: quinoa bowl, green smoothies, and grass-fed protein. Sticking to a plan will be much easier, as disciplined Saturn is on the final leg of its three-year tour through your wellness zone (ending December 19). If you don't know where to begin, do a session with a nutritional counselor or a private trainer just to get the hang of things. With Jupiter in your domestic zone, you could even set up a gym in your living room; or find a studio that feels like a second home.

Leo
July 23 to August 22


General
New year, new you! Massive change is in the air for Leos in 2017. This will be a social year, filled with lively friendships, increasing popularity, and thrilling personal discoveries. It all begins on February 10 with a lunar eclipse in Leo — the first in a two-year series of eclipses that will activate the Leo-Aquarius axis. Eclipses reveal what's hidden in the shadows, and this bundle will awaken your highest potential, both in the personal and relationship arenas. You'll also see where you're holding yourself back — and where you're making the wrong decisions. No shame in owning your "mistakes," Leo! Self-awareness sets the stage for your success. And there will be plenty of it coming: On May 9, the moon's north node (a.k.a. the cosmic-destiny point) returns to Leo for the first time in 18 years! This cycle, which lasts until October 26, 2018, will illuminate your life path — or the important steps you need to take to get there. Feel like shouting your wins from the rooftops? Hang on, Leo. Cautious Saturn hovers in your fame and leadership zone until December 19. If you're going to debut your skills to the world, make sure you're representing like a polished pro.

Love
With cautious Saturn spending the third (or three) years in your romance house, love is like a slow-burning fire in 2017. Stability is as important as passion in 2017: You need both. Many Leos will make big plans in love this year, like moving in together, getting engaged, or even making a baby. With Jupiter in Libra until October 10, romance could arise from the friend zone. Coupled Leos might feel more like best buds than passionate lovers, but make a conscious effort to stoke the embers. Date nights, road trips, and weekend getaways will give you lots to bond over. Swipe away: This Jupiter cycle could bring a big win from dating apps before the fall. The Leo-Aquarius eclipses, which fall on February 10, August 7, and August 21, could shake things up in your romantic life. An unexpected attraction could erupt, or you could decide to take a big leap together with the one you love. Not so into it anymore? You may discover that you're no longer compatible with someone or that you need more from your mate. Careful not to make any sudden moves, though, especially while Venus is retrograde from March 4 to April 15. Your S.O. might just need a moment to catch up — or catch on! Absence can make the heart grow fonder in 2017, as long as you don't drift too far apart.

Prosperity
For the first quarter of 2017, your job is to dabble. How will you know what you love doing unless you experiment? Take one-day workshops, sign up for short-term certifications — or think about designing your own curriculum if you have a skill to teach. Partnerships can be prosperous this year, but pair up on a project-by-project basis instead of committing to a long-term joint venture. If you're comfortable with risk, try working freelance this year. Lucrative assignments can roll in — especially for Leos working in the media, marketing, PR, or education industries. With the moon's north node (destiny point) moving into Leo on May 9, this is a major year of self-discovery. You could embark on a totally new path, changing industries or going back to school. Just try not to launch anything while Mercury is retrograde in Leo from August 31 to September 5! Working with a coach or mentor can help you find the right direction — or stay on course with your goals. With Saturn in your image zone until late December, you might even pose for a sophisticated photo shoot or have a graphic designer help you develop the Leo "brand." When Jupiter heads into Scorpio for a year on October 10, you could set up a home-based business or find success by working with a talented group of women.

Wellness
Exercise ADD? With such a busy 2017, you won't have the time or patience for those 90-minute yoga classes. This year, you can still get stellar results with shorter HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workouts, many of which you can do in your own apartment, sans equipment. Or, blend your social goals with your fitness aspirations. Meet friends for walks instead of brunches sometimes. The CrossFit gym could become your community outpost. Nourish yourself with heart-healthy foods in 2017. Less saturated fat, more "good fats" like nuts, avocado, fish oils, and lean proteins.

Virgo
August 23 to September 22


General
Exhale, Virgo. With Jupiter in your sign until this past September 9, 2016 was a wild year for you — one that brought sweeping changes, losses, rebirths, and revolutionary growth. Are you tired yet? Good news: In 2017, you'll have a chance to breathe, process, and integrate all the new energy that you invited into your life. Instead of spreading yourself thinner than angel-hair pasta, try singletasking: Choose a few key goals you'd like to achieve in 2017, and give yourself ample time to figure out the process of achieving them. Rome will not be built in a day — and you're fine with that now! With Saturn wrapping up a three-year tour of your domestic zone on December 19, 2017, this is also a year for putting down roots. You could buy your first apartment or finally decorate the one you moved into last year. Your inner circle will be your everything, whether they share your DNA or are handpicked members of your "chosen family." Make more time for your mom or other important women. In 2017, you could even be a leader in the feminist revolution!

Love
Since March 20, 2015, a series of eclipses on the Virgo-Pisces axis brought a ton of lessons in the love department. Maybe you left a bad relationship or fell for someone who wasn't exactly available. But every situation made you stronger. On February 26, the final eclipse in this bundle will activate Pisces and your relationship house. A positive pairing could become a lot more official — we're talking key, or vow, exchanges even. Or, you could finally have your Lemonade moment, like Virgo Beyoncé with her Louisville Slugger. If so, plan on doing some soul-searching — or even taking a break from Tinder and the whole dating scene — while Venus is retrograde from March 4 to April 15. And please, don't answer that text from your troubled ex! Venus' backspin could bring attached Virgos to a few couples' therapy sessions. No shame in that! Therapy could revolutionize your relationship in amazing ways in 2017. With Saturn in your cozy fourth house until December 19, you could be meeting the parents and even setting up a cohabitation station before the year is through.

Prosperity
With Jupiter in Virgo in 2016, you've definitely increased your appetite for risk. And with the moon's north node (the cosmic-destiny point) in Virgo until this May 9, you're really discovering where your true calling lies. But 2017 is much more about creating financial stability in your life than taking any unsettling dares. Work from a budget and make an actual savings plan. Setting up auto-transfers can make the whole process seamless. And don't just tuck your extra ends into a low-yielding savings account. Invest in mutual funds and set up a Roth IRA; find out if your job will do any 401K matching. As a sign that craves security, skipping a few retail-therapy splurges to build your nest egg is a worthy sacrifice to make. Freelancing Virgos may go for a gig with a steady paycheck in 2017 — or create a stable client base. Working with women could be highly lucrative this year, and so could starting up (or joining) a family business. Take a vacation while Mercury is retrograde in your sign from August 12 to 31 — not the best time to pitch, present, or even attempt to be productive. But you could dream up some killer ideas while lounging on the beach.

Wellness
Your energy may not be at marathon levels in 2017, but having a steady, easy routine will keep you buzzing right along. Since career is a big focus, join a fitness studio near your job so you can slip off for noon classes or get some weight-training in before you head home for the night. Work your core muscles while you're at your desk by swapping out your chair for a medicine ball. Outdoor exercise suits your earth-sign vibes to a T in 2017. Cycle or walk to work, or join a hiking club for the bonus social element. You could find true love while trekking along the trails!

Libra
September 23 to October 22


General
Fasten your seatbelt and hang on to your fedora! With horizon-expanding Jupiter on its once-per-decade tour of Libra, this will be a year of rapid growth and personal expansion. Until October 10, progress could come at such a fast pace that you could feel a bit overwhelmed. So many choices, so little time! Catch your breath during the red-spotted planet's retrograde from February 6 to June 9. Did you throw out the baby with the bathwater or overload your schedule? Slow down and realign. You don't have to change everything all at once! Figure out where your priorities really lie, so you can devote your energy to the most meaningful missions from June 9 through October 10. After that, life will feel more settled once again — and the profits could come rolling in!

Love
Romance will be exciting in 2017, even if it's not necessarily predictable. Radical Uranus spends its final full year (of seven) in your partnership house, helping you rewrite the rules so that they work for you. Don't try to force relationships to fit some culturally appropriate mold. And even if you do take on a traditional title, you can still buck the stereotypes. With liberated Jupiter in Libra until October 10, you will need plenty of space to do you. Some Libras may prefer single status in 2017 — but that doesn't mean you'll be sleeping alone every night. In February, cosmic lovebirds Venus and Mars will share a flight path through your relationship house, which could make for a delicious Valentine's month. Your ruler, lovestruck Venus, will be retrograde from March 4 to April 15, which could make things a bit choppy in the Sea of Love. Don't sweep issues under the rug with your S.O. Deal, so you can heal the rift. This cycle could even bring a reunion with "the one that got away." The second time might actually be a charm, but you won't know for certain until after April 15. On August 7, a lunar eclipse in Aquarius and your passionate fifth house could bring a major moment for love — one that could even include a proposal or pregnancy.

Prosperity
Independence is the name of the game for Libras in 2017 — you won't be keen on having a boss breathing down your neck. This could be the year to work as a consultant or start up an entrepreneurial venture. If you prefer a little more stability, work "intrapreneurially." You could start a new initiative for the company that signs your paychecks and even be promoted to a leadership role. Before you make any bold and autonomous moves, make sure your colleagues are clued in about your motives. With Saturn on the final leg of its three-year tour through your communication and cooperation house, you must go the extra mile to articulate your intentions. Otherwise, people may think you're disrespecting the chain of command or even trying to compete with them. Having enemies in the industry is so NOT the Libra way. Go out of your way to clarify everything. And think twice before taking people on as partners — better to test the waters first with a single project. If things go well, lawyer up! Draft a contract that spells out responsibilities, how you'll divvy up the profits, and who plays what role. This is the key to keeping things harmonious. You could also get serious about a media project or study the finer points of marketing and social media to help build the Libra brand.

Wellness
Hosting Jupiter in your sign can make 2017 a robust and vital year. Your daredevil streak could even emerge, guiding you to a trapeze class or stand-up paddleboarding yoga. But look before you leap into that extreme fitness class or go signing up for a triathlon. Your competitive spirit could get a little carried away, and that can lead to sports injuries or exhaustion. If you're truly up for the challenge, be vigilant about taking the safety trainings — and wearing the safety equipment. And hey, who better than your stylish sign to turn a cycling helmet into a fashion statement?

Scorpio
October 23 to November 21


General
Yawn…stretch. 2017 is off to a sleepy start as Jupiter lolls about in your 12th house of healing and transitions until October 10. Be true to your Scorpio nature this year, ducking out of the spotlight and spending quality time in your private little cave. You're going to need time alone to restore your energy, rejuvenate your soul, and get back in tune with the muse. This could be a creatively prolific year for you! Healing is a big theme, whether you're working with a specialist to fix an old injury or finding a great therapist who can help you parse through buried issues. Some Scorpios will even make 2017 a gap year, or slip off for a monthlong sabbatical somewhere off the grid. But all this restful energy is leading up to the major moment of 2017: On October 10, lucky Jupiter sails into Scorpio for the first time since November 23, 2006. Talk about a life reboot! With the red-spotted planet in your sign until November 10, 2018, you'll fearlessly dive into new adventures and ambitious quests. This may involve traveling, relocating, or renovating your career plan. By the time the year is through, you might not even recognize your own life!

Love
2017 could feel like a fairy tale as Jupiter pulses through your 12th house of fantasy. Some Scorpios will be swept away — or maybe swept off to a remote island for a private couples' vacation. Though you'll rock the rose-colored glasses, try to keep your wits about you. It might be hard to tell a soul mate from a heartbreaker at times — and you could wind up in an endless cat-and-mouse chase. Rule of thumb: The connection should feel as secure when you're apart as it does when you're spending time together. Already spoken for? You'll crave more one-on-one time, but careful not to drift so far into the couple bubble that you shut out the rest of the world. And don't be a martyr for your mate! Put up boundaries when they ask too much from you, and let them know how they can support you in return. It's your job to vocalize your needs. The eclipse on August 7 could bring some cozy developments, like meeting each other's parents or co-signing on a love nest.

Prosperity
With stable Saturn rounding out a three-year tour of your income zone at the end of 2017, you're more interested in creating financial security for yourself than taking on new challenges in your career. This year, you could work a "boring desk job" to pay the bills or for a bread-and-butter client who might not be the most thrilling, but pays you consistently (and on time!). Having money in the bank and the ability to pay for a winter vacation will be well worth it. Some Scorpios could even invest in real estate or make a profitable home sale near the eclipse on August 7. And forget coasting: The recruiters could also start ringing you this year, thanks to a pair of eclipses in your career house on February 10 and August 21. Leadership is calling, Scorpio — but make sure you're ready to take on the responsibilities before you say yes. It's okay to wait it out, too. You'll definitely be ready to leap after October 10, when daring Jupiter pops into your sign for a year. Your entrepreneurial urges will be awakened by the red-spotted planet, and Q4 of 2017 will be a bright time for starting your own business.

Wellness
Downshift and detox. In 2017, exercise should be flowy rather than insanely strenuous. You could switch from SoulCycle to sunrise yoga, or become a regular at the barre studio. As a water sign, you may love doing lap swims or even taking surf lessons. And sit in those hot tubs: It can help circulation big-time. Since letting go is a big theme, you might even do a juice cleanse (check with your doctor first). Chug water regularly to flush out toxins and keep yourself hydrated. Swap out coffees for matcha teas if you need that caffeine fix. The skin is the largest elimination organ, so as long as you're breaking a sweat, you're helping the process along. Find a gym with a sauna, or try Ayurvedic massage to support the lymphatic system.

Sagittarius
November 22 to December 21


General
Keep on pushing! Ever since December 23, 2014, you've been the host to taskmaster Saturn — a three-year cycle that has felt a lot like cosmic boot camp. Hard as it's been, you've stretched yourself past perceived limits and found strength you didn't even know you had. Happily, this will be the final year of Saturn's regime. On December 19, he'll move on to Capricorn for three years. But until then, there will be no shortcuts. Keep on putting solid structures in place, and avoid taking risks. By the year's end, you'll be primed for a leap up the ladder of success. Thankfully, you don't have to do it all alone in 2017. With your ruling planet Jupiter in your teamwork zone until October 10, many hands make light(er) work. This Jupiter cycle amps up your activist spirit, too. Viva la revolución! This year, you could rally people for marches and protests, and maybe even get involved in politics as a career path.

Love
You're a romantic idealist in 2017. Sure, you'd love to meet The One. But you're not willing to settle. With Jupiter revving up your tech-savvy 11th house, you could get lucky with the dating apps. Group hangs could also be the path to true love, so don't be surprised if a mutual friend "accidentally" connects you to your future S.O. Saturn in Sagittarius will help you make mature decisions in romance — but frisky Jupiter can give you a roving eye at times, too. Early this year, you could date multiple people — especially in March, when five planets pulse through your romance house. Expect a strong rush of spring fever and even a visit from the stork, if you're in the baby-making groove. With Venus retrograde from March 4 to April 15, you could reunite with "the one that got away." But don't take foolish chances, or you could mess up a good thing you've got going on…with someone else. In August, a pair of eclipses set the stage for an epic couples' getaway, or even a vacation romance that turns into a long-distance relationship!

Prosperity
With your ruling planet Jupiter in your teamwork and technology corner until October 10, 2017 will be a "stronger together" year. Recruit your dream team but vet them carefully, especially while Jupiter is retrograde from February 6 to June 9. You might even ask people to sign a non-compete agreement or an NDA if you're sharing your trade secrets. If you're pooling funds, make sure to put everything in writing — and even lawyer up with an official contract that everyone signs. With Saturn in Sagittarius since December 2014, you are verging on workaholic terrain. Stop that cycle cold by setting up systems, streamlining your task list and even outsourcing some tasks. You could drop a difficult client or have an honest conversation with your boss if you don't feel best suited to a particular assignment. Just don't be a martyr! When Jupiter drifts into Scorpio and your 12th house of respite and transition for a year on October 10, you could take a longer-than-usual vacation — like living in a Nicaraguan surf town for a month. Mercury will be retrograde in Sagittarius twice in 2017, so ex out these dates if you're thinking about launching anything: January 8 to 12 and December 3 to 22. Saturn legendarily blesses you with a gift when he leaves your sign. December 19 could bring a big payoff, so stay focuses on the larger goal and don't get distracted by busywork!

Wellness
Saturn in Sagittarius may lower your energy levels this year, so don't push yourself into any extreme boot camps or marathon trainings. Instead, focus on strength training with weights and build stamina slowly. It's okay to go for long walks instead of intense runs through the park! Consistency is more important than anything, so be sure to get up and move around daily, even if you're just walking to the grocery store or taking a dance break in your living room. Group fitness classes can also be fun — and you'll be quite the popular fixture at your chosen gym or studio. When Jupiter drifts into sleepy Scorpio on October 10, start a stress-busting meditation practice (with yoga, even) or splash around at an aqua aerobics class. You'll need to hydrate then too! Keep a refillable bottle topped with H2O or a mug of green tea handy. Water is life!

Capricorn
December 22 to January 19


General
Rainbows and unicorns? As the zodiac's realist, you're not usually taken to such flights of fancy. But in 2017, your ruling planet Saturn is rounding out a three-year tour through your enchanted 12th house. The spiritual and mystical sides of life are calling in 2017. And with lucky Jupiter in your career zone, exploring these pursuits might even turn into a professional path. Corporate trainer by day, tarot card reader by night: Why not? You're represented by the Sea Goat — a mythical creature that is both mission-oriented and magical. The theme of surrender and release is huge this year. What limiting beliefs, unfulfilling activities and toxic relationships can you ditch? Clean house before December 19, when Saturn flows into your sign for three years and restores your mover and shaker mojo. Miracles can happen when you stop trying to control everything and let the universe take the wheel.

Love
Swept away? With Saturn parked in your dreamy 12th house until December 19 a fairy-tale fantasy could become your relationship reality. But romance may still have to be scheduled in 2017 since this will also be a busy career year for Capricorns. Set up a shared calendar to track your S.O.'s schedule — and pinpoint a couple sacred spots for your date nights. Single Capricorns must be careful to avoid the rescue missions. The wounded birds may tug on your heartstrings, but nothing kills your sex drive faster than getting stuck playing therapist to your mate. It's fine to be nurturing though — but with Venus retrograde from March 4 to April 15, you'll see the limits of compulsively caretaking the ones you adore. Learn to reign it in so you feel more like a hot mami than Mommy Dearest. February 10 and August 21 could bring some steamy surprises as eclipses swirl through your erotic eighth house. Meow!

Prosperity
Although you may feel a little hazy about your direction, 2017 is still a career-driven year as Jupiter pulses through your 10th house until October 10. Powerful mentors are everywhere you turn. Utilize them! Working with a coach or executive can groom you for a rise to the top. You could take a leap up the ladder before the fall or score a high-profile client. Need to brush up your skill set? With Jupiter, the ruler of higher education, in your career house, some Capricorns could enter a specialized training or degree program this year. When Saturn enters Capricorn for three years on December 19, you could slay in a very public way. But don't put too much pressure on yourself early this year. Mercury will be retrograde in Capricorn until January 8, allowing you to start 2017 on a reflective note. Refine your objectives before you define your role — then, spend the first half of the year getting your skills up to snuff. Eclipses in February and March can also bring job offers — and also help you with money management. Find a financial planner if you struggle with saving or need someone to manage your budding portfolio of stocks. It's never too early to start investing — something your sign innately understands.

Wellness
Sun salutations, anyone? With so many thoughts swirling through your head — not to mention all the demands on your plate — exercise is essential to keeping stress at bay. Flowier, soulful workouts will appeal in 2017 so get a yoga practice going or become a regular at a dance studio. Swimming or stand-up paddleboarding could also, uh, float your boat. Your emotional health could use some tending to as well so find a great therapist or coach who can help you find serenity when you feel like it's all just so much.

Aquarius
January 20 to February 18


General
Ready, set, expand! You're worldly and wise in 2017, Aquarius, as Jupiter the celestial seeker powers through your global ninth house. Make sure your passport is up to date. You could take at least one epic pilgrimage in 2017 and may travel regularly for work. In February, a two-year series of eclipses begins on the Leo-Aquarius axis. These lunar events (which take place on February 10, August 7 and August 21) will bring rapid developments in your personal direction and your relationships. Forget about following anyone else's rules (as if you ever would). In 2017, you're more self-authorized than ever. The Aquarius lunar eclipse on August 7 could spur a long-awaited life change…or turn into your personal Independence Day.

Love
No strings attached? With Jupiter activating your liberated, adventurous ninth house, you may find it difficult to focus on just one person, or even two. Single status may be more appealing until October 10, allowing you to play the field and get your fix in every port. Hey, Aquarius, how else will you figure out what turns you on? Even if you are attached, you may still have a roving eye and an irrepressible urge to flirt. Nothing wrong with that, as long as you know where to draw the line — and don't torment your mate by bantering with the barista while you're together. Cross-cultural and long-distance relationships could emerge with Jupiter in this worldly zone. Taking a dream vacation with your S.O. could be pure magic — particularly after Jupiter's retrograde from February 6 to June 9. Two eclipses in your relationship house — on February 10 and August 21 — could also deliver surprises. You could get engaged (and quickly elope) or end an unrewarding connection to pursue the love of your life. If there's been a hidden issue plaguing your relationship, the eclipses will lift the rug and force you to deal. Believe it or not, this can be a bonding experience that teaches you both how to lovingly communicate — particularly when Venus is retrograde from March 4 to April 15.

Prosperity
Cast a wider net, Aquarius. In 2017, you could find your fortune farther from home than usual or with a new crowd of clientele. You'll be in an entrepreneurial mindset, preferring to work independently — or even moonlighting at a second job while you build up your own business on the side. With Jupiter activating your higher education houses, brushing up your skills could even take you to the ivory tower — or teacher training, if you have something to master. Got a book in you? Publishing ventures could be prosperous in 2017 so go ahead and pen that novel. With all the great self-publishing tools out there, you don't need a literary agent to get your work in print — but you might just woo one anyway. On October 10, the red-spotted planet will rock your more traditional 10th house for a year. You could take on a leadership or executive position then or figure out a way to work for yourself full time. With Saturn in your technology zone until December 17, learning the finer points of social media and online marketing can also spell money in the bank. Polish up your web presence: This could be the year to start your own YouTube channel, develop an app or build an online store.

Wellness
With Jupiter in your robust and vital ninth house, 2017 could be a seriously active year. Get into an athletic groove and even take your workouts into the great outdoors. Weave some travel in with those fitness goals. How bout saving up for that yoga retreat or bikini boot camp…in Bali? Be sure to stretch! Saturn's position cautions you to take good care of your calves and ankles this year. That might mean sacrificing your stilettos for ballet slippers or rocking the athleisure a lot more often. Group exercise will motivate you too and you'll draw support from the strength of a community — including a wellness webinar or a Facebook group.

Pisces
February 19 to March 20


General
Goals, goals, goals! In 2017, you're not content to drift at sea nor waste your time on frivolous pursuits. Saturn is rounding out a three-year tour of your success-driven 10th house. Until December 19, it's fine to be fixated on building your empire, making your mark in the industry, or climbing up the career ladder. On February 26, the final eclipse in Pisces (from a series that began in your sign on March 20, 2015) will also help crystallize your direction. What is meant to be may come into sharp focus — and you could make some massive changes to your lifestyle in order to pursue your path. Do leave a little room in your schedule for the muse this year. With your ruler, dreamy Neptune continuing to drift through your sign all year, exploring your creativity will be downright spiritual experience. A new bundle of eclipses in your esoteric 12th house and practical sixth can help you turn your visions into something tangible — and profitable!

Love
Welcome to erotic city! 2017 could start with (ahem) a bang as cosmic lovebirds Venus and Mars sashay through your sign for most of January. And until October 10, Jupiter slinks through your seduction zone, setting you up for a year of deep, soulful, and sensual bonding. Privacy please! Your sexual liberation will be best enjoyed behind closed doors — and with one special soul. Superficial exchanges just won't do it for you in 2017 — but stay aware, Pisces. You could be drawn to danger or situations with an edge. Thrilling though they may be in the moment, they could also leave you obsessing or drowning in regret. Saturn's position in your long-term 10th house could bring some romantic goals to life. You could be drawn to the provider type, or even a partner with a kid from a previous relationship. Working through a few Daddy issues may be the key to truly letting go in love this year.

Prosperity
Power surge! You've got the "high-pro glow" in 2017 as Saturn spends its final (of three) years in your career zone. Think like a CEO, even if you are working at a 9-5 gig. What is the Pisces brand? What is your mission statement and how can you represent like a baller in your industry? Polishing up your professional image can get you recognized by the influencers — and one could even take you under her wing. With Jupiter in your eighth house of big money, cash could come from selling possessions or property. Set up that online store or learn about the real estate market. Work with a financial advisor to get your portfolio started — the sooner you begin tucking cash away in stocks, bonds and IRAs, the sooner you can retire to that fantasy beach house and live by your own rules. It's never too early or too late to begin! When enterprising Jupiter head into Scorpio for a year on October 10, traveling or even relocating for work is a possibility. Pisces entrepreneurs could start or expand your own business — or hire out as a consultant — in the final few months of 2017.

Wellness
Time to shake things up a little, Pisces. Two wellness-focused eclipses (on February 10 and August 21) activate your interest in a new fitness modality. Detoxing your diet can also do wonders for your mood — and your immune system, which relies on good gut health. Try an anti-inflammation diet early this year, removing some of the acidic foods from your plate like sugar, wheat, red meat, and dairy. Even if it's just a temporary reset, your body will thank you. Popping a probiotic can also add "good bacteria" to your gut and help you ward off those seasonal bugs. And don't forget preventative medicine like massage, acupuncture, chiropractic care. Holistic modalities like these can be quite effective for a metaphysical maven like you.
