The Zodiac For Nurses: Your Horoscope For 2017
As nurses, our education and training is in the biological sciences and in medical practice. This, of course, revolves around empirical reasoning and evidence-based practice. But despite our scientific mindsets, some of us have a guilty pleasure for reading our horoscopes. Is there something strange about these predictions, or is it a mere pseudoscience? Either way, it can be fun to check it out. So, here are your horoscopes for the year 2017.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
For you, 2017 will be a time of renewed potential and impressive personal growth. All year long, Saturn and Uranus — your most important planets– will stay strong and full of power.
While you’ll enjoy plenty of financial and career success, your biggest new developments will be internal. At the beginning of the year, the conjunction of the Sun and Pluto in Capricorn keeps you focused on career goals and finances. At the same time, the Mars-Neptune conjunction in early 2017 keeps your idealism in full swing.
The moon and Venus are also conjoined as we move into the new year, easing your personal relationships and giving you a great rapport with friends, co-workers, and your patients alike.
The Sun will also enter Aquarius, which will join together with the Moon and Jupiter in your Ninth House. This brings a renewed focus on intellectual growth and higher learning — maybe you’re going back to school for a master’s degree or a PhD. This is a great year for Aquarius nurses to do that.
On February 10th, there will be a lunar eclipse, with the Sun in Aquarius. On August 7th comes a second lunar eclipse, this time with the Moon in Aquarius. These times might bring sudden emotional issues, which you’ll need to work through.
Pisces (February 19th to March 20th)
This year, you’ll navigate any situation smoothly. As the year begins, Mars and Neptune will be conjoined in Pisces, dispelling deceit and deception from your life and bringing your own personal ideals to the forefront. In January, the Sun and Pluto conjunction will intensify your efforts toward career success, while also fueling your passionate nature.
During February’s solar eclipse, Neptune is joined to the Sun, helping you see through the chaos around you and make the right decisions.
Aries (March 27th to April 19th)
This year, your smarts and charm will take your life in a whole new direction. The trine aspect this year between Saturn and Uranus should keep you going with what’s been working so far, but with a new twist. As the year goes by, you might find yourself feeling a little bored or stifled. This could inspire you to make some serious changes for the better by December. Whether it’s a new job, or a move to a new house, or a newly revitalized social life, this should be one exciting year for Aries nurses!
Taurus (April 20th to May 20th)
This is a year to focus on you. As nurses, we’re sometimes so busy and preoccupied taking care of others, that we forget to take care of our own health and well-being. This is your year to focus on you. You’ll take new steps to improve your physical and financial well-being, your psychological health, and the stability of your own future. This January, the conjunction of Pluto and the Sun in the Cardinal Earth Sign keeps things practical, focused, and down to earth. This is your sign to make changes to make 2017 your best year yet, and a major turning point in the entire course of your life.
Gemini (May 21st to June 20th)
You’ve got some serious people skills, Gemini nurses, and this is the year to take advantage of that. You’ll feel the need to make changes in your life, with lofty goals and big dreams — but you might have difficulty making them concrete on your own. Talk to people, network, and find partners who can help you advance your career. This will be one of your most successful years to date when it comes to practical matters, like finances and your career.
Cancer (June 21st to July 22nd)
Great things are coming your way this year, Cancer nurses. There’s a transformative energy in the air as this year begins, and with January’s conjunction between Pluto and the Sun, your home life and domestic environment will thrive. Whether you’re helping your children succeed, or just beginning to settle down and raise a family of your own, this is the year for it. This year will also bring the fruition of a big long-term project. This will take you to a better place in your life, which could be physical, emotional, spiritual, or geographical.
Leo (July 23rd to August 22nd)
This year is going to be fire, Leo nurses! This is your year, for sure. As we move into January and the year begins, the Sun-Pluto conjunction keeps your energy and ambition high. This is the kind of year where if you’re not careful, all that ambition and drive could go into overdrive and leave you feeling burned out. Be sure to focus on your own well-being, as well as your ambitions.
Virgo (August 23rd to September 22nd)
This year, you’ll blast off into a galaxy of new career possibilities. You’ll move ahead during this abundant year, and you’ll enjoy many great new achievements. The Moon and Venus will conjoin in Aquarius, which has the effect of smoothing out any personal, relationship, and emotional difficulties you may have been experiencing.
Libra (September 23rd to October 22nd)
Jupiter is in Libra for most of 2017, from January all the way into October. This brings a great year for you, full of new connections and friendships. This is a lucky year for you, personally, and Jupiter in retrograde will draw your attention to resolving internal personal and emotional problems.
Scorpio (October 23rd to November 21st)
You’re in for quite the lucky year, Scorpio nurses! The Sun-Pluto conjunction at the start of the year will have you wired up and high energy, ready to take the new year by the reigns. This year you’ll be sharp and intense for the entire year’s duration, ready to achieve great things in your life.
Sagittarius (November 22nd to December 21st)
This year is full of new opportunities for Sagittarius nurses. New doors are opening for you, and this year could take you in a whole new direction you would never have expected. Your attention will be focused on career pursuits, as well as your various creative passions. You’ll be very productive, working steady and aiming high throughout the year.
Capricorn (December 22nd to January 19th)
This is a year for bold action and many exciting new changes for you. Mercury will go into retrograde four times over the course of the year, and the first is in Capricorn. You’ll feel cautious at first, but by the middle of the month, you’ll be ready for action.
