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.
