Life in 2017 – Take Care

You are likely to be more emotional this year which has both ups and downs, so make sure you express your emotions appropriately. The upside of this newfound emotionality is the ability to relate to others and in turn for them to relate to you. You are likely to be more confident and warm thus attracting new people into your life, so expect some new friends this year.

Watch your health during 2017, especially energy blockages in the abdomen leading to indigestion and other problems. Pay special attention to your diet and exercise program and make sure you get plenty of good quality downtime, resting adequately.

Don’t take unnecessary risks with your physical body and be especially careful of tripping or falling. It’s a good idea to try and spend time alone in nature meditating at the beach or in a forest.

Love in 2017 – Time to Commit

2017 is a fortunate year for Rats in love and romance. It may even be good enough to finally get married! If you’re already married, you may consider children because this year is all about deepening and committing further to relationships. If you’re single, you are also likely to be fortunate in love. No need to rush anything as the Universe is smiling upon you this year for romantic relationships.

Just a note of caution – if you’re already in a committed relationship, don’t be tempted to stray during 2017 for you are likely to get caught and the fallout won’t be pretty.

Single rats looking to meet new people will be helped along by favourable influences. You will strike up new friendships easily. You may find your emotions full on or full off. Try to practise moderation in all things this year, especially your emotions and sexual urges.
