Moon Sign based Yearly Horoscope for 2017

By Kshitij Sharma, December 26, 2016

The yearly horoscope for 2017 based on the Moon sign or janma rashi. Please do not substitute this for the Sun sign as per Western Astrology. The following are the long term transits of planets during 2017, which will affect various persons according to the janma rashi in their horoscope.

Other transits like that for Sun, Mars and other planets would have their effect on monthly basis. These effects will be periodically presented in the monthly horoscope section. Horoscopes on month to month basis will continue to be much more detailed than this article. Please be on the lookout for the same and keep coming back to this site. I believe in monthly horoscopes much more than yearly ones – because they work on micro levels and much more timely details can be presented there. The yearly horoscope can be presented as a month to month presentation but that defeats the purpose.

  • Rahu will be in Leo and Ketu will be in Aquarius till the middle of 2017. Thereafter, they move to Cancer and Ketu moves to Capricorn.
  • Jupiter
    • Jupiter becomes retrograde on February 06, 2017
    • Resumes direct motion on June 09, 2017

    • Saturn becomes direct on August 25th 2017 when at 27°5″ in Scorpio.
    • Saturn reenters Sagittarius on October 25th when again starts giving Sagittarius results again.
