Your Libra 2017 horoscope: What’s ahead for your Sun sign?
Adapted from The AstroTwins’ 2017 Planetary Planner
Summon the glam squad and line up a press conference. 2017 could be your luckiest and most expansive year in over a decade! Yes, the news really is that major—and it’s not a moment too soon. Why? Jupiter, the planet of good fortune and abundance, is in Libra until October 10, its first visit here since 2005. Jupiter only travels through your sign every 12 years, supersizing your personal goals and initiatives. After slogging through a tough 2016, the puzzle pieces are finally coming together. Even the hard times will soon start to make sense, as you realize how they’ve prepared you for the big leagues. No more warming the bench, Libra—it’s your turn at bat and you’ll be swinging hard.
Random baseball metaphors aside, this year will set your compass for a whole new 12-year life chapter. Your cutting-edge ideas could even gain traction in the media or through strong community support. You might become a spokesperson for a like-minded audience or start your own world-changing movement (admit it, you’ve secretly dreamed of doing that). Writing, speaking and teaching can bring your novel concepts into the mainstream. But really, you’re not focused on convincing anyone or throwing ammunition to the haters. You’ll lead by example in 2017, showing people how to curate a “life by design” that’s memorable and meaningful. We’ll be watching, Libra.

While Jupiter in your sign is a blessing, it can have a bittersweet tinge. This prosperous year always follows on the heels of one of the HARDER (if not hardest) years of your life. Before Jupiter enters your sign, it cycles through your twelfth house of endings, closure and healing for 12-13 months. From August 11, 2015 until September 9, 2016, Jupiter was in Virgo and your transitional twelfth house—a foggy and challenging period where not a whole lot came together, at least, not on the material plane. It was a time of deep healing, when you possibly weathered a loss, heartbreak or disappointment. You may have been exhausted and even uncharacteristically antisocial, perhaps even dealing with an illness.
Jupiter’s grand tour of Libra comes to an end on October 10, but there’s more great news on the way. For the next 13 months, lucky and expansive Jupiter will travel through Scorpio and your second house of work, money and confidence. Now you’re ready to pick a lane, turning a novel idea from that cycle into a tangible new reality. Settling down won’t feel limiting now—more like a welcome relief. Roll up your sleeves and build something that can stand the test of time.
LOVE & RELATIONSHIPS
Freedom is your aphrodisiac this year! You’re the sign of relationships, but with expansive Jupiter in Libra until October, your indie spirit is awakened. Break out of confining arrangements, Libra, and negotiate more breathing room. You need a lot of space to roam and might even prefer to fly solo. Traveling, taking classes and exploring new interests will be a turn-on for couples. Your ruler, love-planet Venus, goes retrograde in March and April, which could send your love life into a tailspin or demand an overhaul. An August lunar eclipse in your passionate fifth house could bring a romantic situation to a heated turning point.
MONEY & CAREER
Here’s to your dreams! Enterprising Jupiter is in Libra until October 10, inspiring you to explore new career paths, launch a solo venture or experiment wildly. Take some risks and go big now—lady luck is on your side. In October, Jupiter blazes into your work and money house, which could bring your most lucrative year in over a decade. An exciting job offer could boost your income bracket and financial security; it could even involve travel, teaching or relocation. Meanwhile, heavyweight Saturn in your communication house could establish you as a writer, speaker or influencer. If you’re not being taken seriously, polish your presentation and practice voicing your ideas with more authority. Back them up with facts and figures, too.
HEALTH & WELLNESS
You’re up for just about anything this year, thanks to adventurous Jupiter in your zodiac sign. This is the “year of you,” Libra, so think of health from a big-picture view, prioritizing your own happiness and fulfillment. A late February solar eclipse in your health and wellness sector could open up a new chapter for your vitality. Ditch bad habits and begin on a new path. In October, Jupiter enters Scorpio and your second house of daily routines, helping you settle into a grounded groove and increase your quality of life. Savoring the moment never felt so sweet!
FAMILY & FRIENDS
Wanted: co-adventurers! With free-spirited Jupiter in Libra, you have no time for anyone who ties you down. But you’re hungry for new experiences and happy to have curious companions. Eclipses in February and August sweep through your friendship house, which could reshuffle the ranks of your inner circle. Meantime, serious Saturn in your social sector draws ambitious contacts who can open doors. In late December, structured Saturn enters your home and family house, reshaping your domestic life until March 2020.
