January Monthly Horoscope: Out With the Old, In With the New!

january 2017 monthly horoscopes

New month, new year, new you…we’ll take all the “new” we can get! What do the stars have in store for you in the new year? Find out in your January Monthly Horoscope.

After a tough 2016 (read our astro-numerological explanation for THAT), we’re hungry for some hope. And even if turning a fresh calendar page is a placebo effect of sorts, the burst of positive energy has put some fuel back in our depleted tanks. Your planetary prescription? One part Law of Attraction, one part hustle.

Your planetary prescription: one part Law of Attraction, one part hustle.

The coming year will still hold plenty of curveballs, but TBH, the stars look a lot smoother than they did last year, even starting with January’s monthly horoscope. (Read an exclusive excerpt from our 2017 Planetary Planner to find out what the stars hold for your sign.)

2017 horoscope guides and planetary planner

As always, January begins with the Sun in structured, steadying Capricorn—the perfect time to set some serious #goals and map out the milestones we hope to achieve. Aim for a combination of spiritual and ambitious resolutions now. Go-getter Mars and dreamy Neptune will unite in Pisces on January 1, a rare conjunction that will ramp up our manifesting powers. Your planetary prescription: one part Law of Attraction, one part hustle.

Mercury will also be rounding out a frustrating retrograde that started December 19, continuing to scramble signals with communication, technology and travel until January 8. Mercury is reversing through Capricorn until the 4th, before backing into outspoken Sagittarius for the duration of this cycle. Filters please! We could all come down with a case of foot-in-mouth disease during the first week of the month.

The year’s first full moon arrives January 12 in nurturing Cancer. While this might typically mark an occasion for domestic bliss, la luna is also snared in a Grand Cross—a four-way planetary showdown—with a hotheaded triumvirate: the ego-driven Sun, disruptor Uranus and outspoken Jupiter. We could all feel pulled in way too many directions now, or (brace yourself!) we might experience some upheaval in global politics once again. Of course, that’s become business as usual…but be prepared for some tension in the air now.

Aquarius season begins on January 19, just in time for Inauguration Day (aaahhhhhh!) on January 20 and the Women’s March on Washington on January 21. Aquarius is the sign of group activities, humanitarian endeavors, politics and activism—so the time is ripe for raising our collective voices.

Or maybe we should just crow? On January 27 the Aquarius new moon also brings us the Chinese New Year—and the start of the Year of the Fire Rooster. Wave goodbye to the energy of the manic Monkey, whose screeching and mischievous antics have grown tiresome to so many. Now, the fastidious Rooster is here to sound the alarm and help us all get #woke. There’s work to do, people—and the Rooster is here to help us chart the way.
