January 2017 is a dynamic month during which you can expect the unexpected. In fact, this could be a month full of surprises and dynamics, and behind all this is the T- square formed by Uranus (in Aries), Jupiter (in Libra) and Pluto (in Capricorn).
This T- square brings a lot of energy due to the passage of the Sun through the sign of Capricorn (until January 19), the passage of Mars through the sign of Aries (from January 28) and passage of Mercury through the sign of Capricorn where it ends its retrograde walk.
January 2017 is the beginning of a new cycle that will put your relationships on a test. Venus, the planet of love and ruler of the house of pairs of Aries, enters the sign of Pisces on January 3, 2017. That’s when it starts its retrograde walk during which it moves between Pisces and Aries, until June 6, and it has the strongest influence between April 4 and 15. In that period, Venus brings unexpected feelings and questions, it makes you face the needs, desires or frustrations, that you haven't admitted even to yourself until now, it brings out to the surface old or suppressed problems that haven't been solved. During January you could enter a secret affair, or make certain realization easy. Events in the upcoming months start here.
Between January 3 and 28, Mars, ruler of the house of pairs of Taurus, is in the company of Venus, the planet of love and good understanding. Furthermore, Mars and Venus are in a good house that brings hope and realization of plans in the future, adapting to society and entertainment. Under such influence, January is a lucky month that fulfills your expectations and brings events that will make you happy. But there is a catch: you could get too excited and occupy yourself with something that is not worth your attention, or you could, after careful analysis, understand that it is not what you thought it was. Be rational and you won't have to face disappointments. February and March won't be as generous as January.
