2017 is really here and you're very, very psyched. You have good reasons to be, Aries, and these will become clearer as the month progresses. Until the 8th, however, you might as well remain on holiday. Mercury will be retrograde through the first week of January, so making substantive progress might be tough at first. Still, the New Moon from late in 2016 continues to inspire your career goals – just put them into motion a bit later in the month. A sweet, nurturing Full Moon appears on the 12th, and it's perfect for getting close to your loved ones, or throwing a dinner party at your home. A powerful New Moon zooms onto the astro-scene on the 27th, putting your goals and wishes into the clearest possible terms. This is an ideal moment for collaboration – start now and watch it evolve over the next six months. The very next day your driven, action-oriented ruler Mars moves into your own stars. No wonder you're so excited to get the 2017 party started – nothing can stop you now.

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.
