Weekly horoscopes: Jan. 2 – Jan. 8
The first half of 2017 feels a bit like Mr. Toad's wild ride. You will wonder what crazy maniac has seized control of the wheel as your life careens from left to right, spins around in place and leaps full throttle over gaping ravines. It's dizzying, exciting and bound to leave you breathless. Thankfully, things slow down over the summer as the system of checks and balances reasserts its hold — curbing some of the more outlandish actions and wild-eyed decisions that certain people are making. Propitious sextiles and trines in August and November will help you to pick up the pieces and to make sense of what has transpired. 2017 ends with you slipping back into the driver's seat. You learned your lesson about handing power over to those who don't deserve it. Now you can go where you want and at your own speed.
