Your Stars for 2017

Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19) #

Juno has captured new images of Jupiter’s northern lights. Like you, they are filled with energy for the months ahead. You have a great deal of unused capacity which you have not turned to your advantage.

Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20) #

Distant events may have an impact on you this week. The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory has detected gravitational waves which may provide the first evidence for quantum gravity.

Gemini (May 21 – Jun 20) #

Earth’s nearest exoplanet Proxima Centauri b may be blasted by extinction level superflares from its red dwarf star, but don’t let your anger get the better of you during the holiday season.

Cancer (Jun 21 – Jul 22) #

Try not to be too critical of your limitations. Important things can come in tiny packages, as the Breakthrough Starshot project hopes to demonstrate.

Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 22) #

Feeling like you lack the resources to get through the hard times ahead? Japan has plans to mine the moon. Perhaps you have a great deal of unused capacity which you have not turned to your advantage.

Virgo (Aug 23 – Sep 22) #

The new year is a time to clear away harmful junk from the past. Japan’s space agency has launched a new KITE device with the aim of clearing orbital debris from space. Make it a goal to clear out things that trouble you in the new year.

Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22) #

Prepare yourself for dynamic change. The Square Kilometer Array is coming online and may change our view of the world radically. Exciting discoveries are ahead.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21) #

NASA’s tests on the EmDrive may have shown anomalous massless thrust, but beware of accepting things which seem too good to be true, before they have been proven beyond a doubt. Your skeptical nature will protect you.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21) #

You have found it unwise to be too frank in revealing yourself to others, but the Very Long Baseline Array hopes to double the number of known supermassive black holes over the next few years. Sooner or later the very darkest, most hidden things will come to light.

Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19) #

Consider that there may be some key detail you’re missing which is preventing you from understanding your world. Scientists think there may be a fifth force of nature which could be key to understanding the mystery of dark matter.

Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 18) #

You prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations. Scientists are hoping to test a theory that the speed of light may once have been faster. Even the strongest rules must occasionally be broken.

Pisces (Feb 19 – Mar 20) #

Some of your aspirations tend to be pretty unrealistic. The star KIC 8462852 isn’t surrounded by a Dyson sphere after all. It’s still a mystery though, so still interesting. Seek new challenges from even the biggest disappointments.
