The year is slowly coming to an end, and the Internet is overflowing with articles on "what to expect in 2017". Although I am not an astrologist, I thought I'd give a try and write a fun horoscope for all of you lovely people out there. So, here it goes (remember: i can't guarantee these predictions will come true):

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

For Capricorns 2017 is going to be a crucial year in their career. Perhaps an interesting promotion, or a new opportunity is just around the corner and waiting for you to take the leap of chance. Don't wait too long Capricorns, just go for it! 2017 will also bring to you interesting encounters, up to you to see whether or not you want them to become more just a 'fling'.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius' focus of 2017 is family and inter-family relationships. Take some time to spend with your family, perhaps a long awaited holiday? You have already established a steady career, so focus on the people they upcoming year. If you do not have a steady career and are wondering what to expect, Spring is a good season for you to network. 2017 is also going to be a romantic year for you, so take some time to be with the ones you love! Singles: not to worry, 2017 is perfect year to socialise and mingle!

Aries (March 20 - April 19)

For Aries 2017 is going to be an interesting year in terms of finances. An unexpected heritage, a successful business deal or simply increase in salary is coming up in 2017! However, despite the sudden success financially, don't forget to remain human towards your family and loved ones. Make sure you spend quality time with the right people. Remember: money can't buy you happiness.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Oh Gemini, this year try to focus on one thing at a time and not diverse your attention towards everything and everyone at once. If everything is well at work, focus on love. If you are in a happy relationship then focus on your job. Remember: trying to reach for both might lead you to nowhere. Also, 2017 is a good year to turn the page over the past once and for all.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Career, family, personal projects - how to balance all? Cancer is going to have some trouble to find a way to juggle all very important components of their life at once. Career is promising to be fruitful in 2017, so no worries there. Family will always love you no matter, so don't stress to much and try to impress them. If you are thinking of taking a new challenge of a personal project - go for it! If anyone can handle multi-tasking in 2017 it is definitely you!

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Leos have to pause for a minute and ask themselves what it is that they want 2017 to be for them. It is a good year to evaluate your actions, and where you want to go in future. A good year to start a new job, new relationship and start fresh, knowing better this time round, where you want to go.
