Your Annual Horoscopes 2017

ARIES (March 22 TO April 20)

You may find that there are several areas of life that demand attention as 2017 dawns. The sheer quantum of work that lies ahead may be quite daunting. However, the promise of a giant leap professionally, and possibly the entry of a very interesting individual, who inspires and motivates you, gives you the impetus to keep moving forward. There may be a new job offer or a transfer to a location abroad. Exercise prudence when it comes to money. Quite a few individuals could tie the knot. There are possibilities of discord owing to interference by family. Your own choices in personal relationships may cause some damage. You may find yourself leaning towards traditional ideas and beliefs. Discord around property matters could be settled this year, but the outcome may not be completely to your liking.

2017 is likely to be one of mixed results for you. The first half may have you worried professionally, as you find it hard to get a breakthrough.

Those engaged in business should be careful about getting into partnerships. You could end up with lesser resources than when you started, and a damaged reputation. Academicians and students may need to put in more effort. Personal life is average. There could be emotional baggage. Second half of the year could see eligible and willing individuals getting married. Long distance or international travel is likely.

You may feel that there are too many expectations from you at the workplace but very little support. There could be some financially rewarding projects that don’t pick up speed. Those running business in partnerships could have divergent views. You should be careful, if investing in a large asset.

2017 is likely to be a fairly good year. You may be able to achieve some of your major goals and that brings satisfaction and increases confidence. There may be a lot of work and travel that keep you on your toes. There could be some discomfort and loneliness felt during your travels. You will do really well if you maintain a calendar and a ‘to-do’ list rather than going by memory alone. Second half brings much better results and your stamina and ambition could spike. It is a good year where money and assets are concerned. There could be some disturbances in the domestic environment, but there is greater understanding as the year progresses. It is a good year to embark on a new relationship or mend an old one. If you can get past your fears without getting intimidated, it will be a big step forward.

There may be a loan or a debt to be paid off, which you will be able to. You must stay away from gambling and speculation. There could also be disappointment with friends and relatives, as they may have promised help but pull away suddenly. If you happen to work with a sibling, tricky work situations should be handled with diplomacy. There may be difficult situations at home during the latter half and you may need to establish a better work-life balance. There could be worry related to children, but communication can solve these issues. Seek the involvement and advice of loved ones in the domestic scenario.

VIRGO (August 22 to September 21)

However, as the year progresses, you may discover that the work will require greater discipline and consistent learning on your part. Sometimes, it can feel like the time for personal life and leisure may actually need to be snatched from a busy schedule. There may be a long stint abroad. There may also be jealousy and criticism coming your way. Choose your battles. You will be able to vanquish your enemies and issues, if you deal with them without getting too sensitive.

You may be able to acquire a new property or an asset this year. Substance abuse, self-medication or excesses of any kind should be avoided. Family life moves on an even keel.
