According to Horoscope.com, 2017 is the year to be bold and face any transitions or challenges with courage and a positive attitude to make room for true progress in your life. “2017 may not be an easy year,” but it’ll all be worth it as you take your life in a new, improved direction.
2017 starts off with the Sun approaching its annual Pluto conjunction, which means it’s time to make a clean sweep. And even if you’re hesitant to embrace the changes coming your way, they’re coming. But not to worry: January 1 saw the separation of the Mars-Neptune conjunction which gives us the “personal magic we need, as well as endless faith in ourselves.” There’s no time to be hesitant or shy in 2017; the time is now to be bold and bright and to trust in your abilities.
It’s time to stop selling yourself short in 2017. Be proud and be sure to celebrate every success or victory, big or small.
