STRAIGHT TO THE POINT:
The year ends on a thoughtful note for many. A rare Jupiter-Uranus opposition brings hope for a successful breakthrough where there has been stalemate before. Mars teams up with Neptune for a sentimental and nostalgic feel to New Year’s Eve, but with a Capricorn New Moon a couple of days earlier, it won’t take long for us to get back to business as the festivities fade.
A fresh attitude towards personal relationships helps you heal wounds or attract new love as 2016 fades. Being less selfish and more considerate of others should also pave the way forwards for a new career opportunity.
Let go of your need for order and allow the week to unfurl as it will. You cannot control time or many of your circumstances – but what is within your control is your attitude. Embrace the unknown and run with it into 2017.
What you want conflicts with what you think you should or ought to do – your desires contrast with your responsibilities. With some careful thought now you should be able to craft a more win-win path as you head into a new year.
Your work-life balance is a priority and it will remain so into 2017. Hard choices become easier if you get the understanding and co-operation of your loved ones. Don’t be afraid to have difficult conversations now.
Take this chance to deal with an educational need or lack in your life. If there’s some extra training which would benefit you, swallow your pride and sign up to it. As 2017 begins, opportunities to learn will come fast.
What you thought was secure turns out to be on shakier ground. This could be a shock, but stay calm to navigate these tricky waters. Be adaptable and flexible, so that you can move into 2017 better prepared for change.
Standing on your own two feet is a key theme now and you’ll need to keep asserting your independence into 2017 too. Find your own identity. Within a relationship, give yourself some space as a unique individual.
A lot of psychic influences swirl around you as 2016 closes. It’s a fantastic time to develop your spirituality or to join a spiritual group of some kind. Seek out like-minded souls to help you learn and progress into 2017.
Beware of the temptation to drown your sorrows. Looking to the past is natural at this time of year, but keep your sights set firmly on the future too. You have a huge amount to look forward to, so embrace the promise of 2017.
Are you who your image says you are? A conflict between the real you and your public persona will need resolving, because you can’t play pretend forever. Don’t be afraid now to show off who you truly are. There is no need to hide.
Consider sharing your knowledge or expertise with a group or with a young person – you make a fabulous mentor. As 2016 fades, think about ways in which you could “teach” or impart valuable knowledge to others in 2017.
Most of your new year resolutions are financial ones, but think a little deeper. If you learn to value your own self-worth more highly, then you won’t be so troubled by your personal wealth, or lack of it, as the new year begins.
