2016 may not have been your favourite year (or anybody's for that matter) but it's going out with quite a bang. With all the planets set to send you off into 2017 in style, let's get started, Aries! As December opens you're still riding on the high of the late November New Moon, one that called you to your greatest adventure yet. If you haven't booked your holiday plans, do it soon. By the 13th, a crazy chatty Full Moon arrives to knock your communication strategy for a loop. You might feel like you need to say everything you've ever wanted to say all in one breath – try to measure your words for best results. A writing project or PR push you started about six months ago is coming to a close now. Tie up loose ends straightaway, because Mercury Retrograde returns to the scene on the 19th, and it's likely to muck up your career strategy a bit – not to mention your holiday shopping strategy. If at all possible, get all your gifts bought and wrapped before the communication planet turns around. The Winter Solstice asks you to take a quiet moment on the 21st – this is all about meditation and inner reflection. You'll need that peaceful space, because by the 29th, the New Moon arrives in concert with Uranus turning direct in your own sign. Talk about brand new beginnings! This fiery cosmic combo comes just in time to add a bit of unexpected glitter to your New Year's Eve.

You're still coming off a sexy Halloween high as the month opens. The New Moon from late in October sets the tone for the first week of November, and that tone is decidedly desirous. If you didn't have a hookup or a great date with your spouse over the weekend, there's still time to satisfy your appetites, Aries. The vibe shifts as you approach the Full Moon on the 14th. This lush lunation makes you crave the luxe things in life – the ones that you can buy with your hard-earned income. You might get a wakeup call about how much you're making in accordance with how much you're spending – mind your budget in order to catch up and get ahead. A venture you tried to launch about six months ago could finally be coming to life now, for real. After the 21st the stars shift into your house of travel and adventure, stoking your wanderlust for the next four weeks. By the time the New Moon arrives 29th, have a destination wish-list ready, and get ready to jet, because you're really going places in 2017.
