So here we go into the New Year! What can we expect?
Let’s start off with some general information for all the Star signs…
The good news is that pretty much no matter what your Star sign, 2016 going to be a whole lot easier than 2012-2015 was.
That’s because those years brought us those terribly pressurising and some would say downright dreadful Uranus/Pluto clashes. And they are now officially over for eons.
Especially affected were Aries, Cancers, Librans and Capricorns (or if you have one of those signs rising…)
WHAT DOES THIS YEAR PROMISE?
2016 will be less about being pushed into a corner by the Universe so that have to take action, and more about making positive life changes.
Arguably the loveliest of the astro-links ahead this year will taking place between Jupiter (positivity) and Pluto (change). So yes, we are onto a much better thing.
Positive change is in the air. That means if you want to do something different, it’s not going to be such a struggle!
Here is a quick rundown re where you can expect change to flow more easily. Read your sign or your Rising sign if you know it!
Aries – changes can flow at work
Taurus – study and/or travel will be life-changing
Gemini – overall positive changes can flow re sex and money
Cancer – your love life can be transformed in a good way
Leo – overall positive changes can flow at when it comes to your daily life
Virgo – overall positive changes will be connected to romance, creativity and kids (your own or someone else’s)
Libra – overall positive changes can flow at home and re family
Scorpio – you will realise that you are creating your life with your thoughts!
Sagittarius – overall positive changes are the expected financially
Capricorn – your whole life is ripe for positive changes in 2016!
Aquarius – blast through your fears and your life will be even more amazing
Pisces – your friendships are going to be even more powerful this year
So will 2016 be 100% smooth sailing? Of course not! However there will be less of a crushing imperative that feels like do or die… and that has to be a good thing!
What’s really a stand out this year is that a lot of the big, outer, slow-moving planets are connecting in way that will allow us mere mortals here on earth to stride towards our goals.
STAND OUT DATES
Every year brings some super peak dates of the year which affect us all no matter what our star signs. These are the dates for 2016 and very much worth noting in your diary!
We will explain more about what this means for YOUR star sign as the time comes but for now, write them down and remember that big life changes and better leaps forward into the future will be possible around these dates.
If you plan to start or launch anything in 2016, these are potentially quite good dates.
March 16 – a wonderful day for big changes (Jupiter/Pluto)
June 18 – make a big dream come true (Saturn/Neptune)
June 26 – more chances for mind-blowing changes (Jupiter/Pluto)
December 25 – hard work pays off (Saturn/Uranus)*
December 26 – exciting developments ((Jupiter/Uranus)*
* These two dates are quite mysterious as they suggest very positive change and yet many of us reading this will be taking a day off and relaxing with family and/or friends. So what can it mean? My best bet is that these dates augur very well for better family relations OR for projects you’ve worked hard on throughout the year somehow paying off during the holiday season. Stay tuned as the year unfolds for more info specific to your sign about these important dates.
LOOKING AT THE MAJOR TRENDS FOR THE YEAR AHEAD…
When we look at the major trends for the year ahead, the first thing is to see what lucky Jupiter is up to.
This is the planet that helps make life easier. And this year, the lucky planet is in Virgo for most of the year (until September).
As an Aries – how lucky will you be this year?
Jupiter is moving into your 6th House of Health – and there are two likely ways for it to play out. If you’re smart, you will try to use the very positive Jupiter vibe to reinject the fun back into your diet and exercise regimes and routines.
He really can blast a sense of enjoyment back into taking care of yourself over the next 9 months and PS after he’s finished in this part of your chart, he’s headed for your House Of Love when you probably will be very happy to be in good shape as he boosts your love life!
However, Jupiter is also a self-indulgent so and so. Sometimes, he makes us feel like saying “Oh hang it, it’ll work out fine, I’m not going to stress. Let’s have another chocolate…” which is good for something but not so good for the waistline. So beware if you can already sense that Jupiter’s move into your 6th House means you’re about to become super lazy when it comes to your health and fitness! You have been warned!
The other part of your chart he’s going to affect is your Daily Working Life – and the good news he is going to cheer you up, no matter how miserable you’ve been feeling about the daily grind. Your daily duties could be about to double, but never fear, so too is your enjoyment of 9 to 5 (or whatever hours you work).
If you’ve been looking for work, Jupiter increases your chances of getting some great offers – but just remember you have to put an effort in to find them, too! A raise, a bonus or some kind of recognition for a job well done is also a possibility for you now. Good luck!
HOW HARD WILL YOU HAVE TO WORK?
Of course taskmaster Saturn is still out there and circling the zodiac so there are still lessons to be learned by all of us.
Knowing where Saturn will be for you throughout 2016 is actually really, really worthwhile!
Saturn is the planet that makes us work hard but he is also the planet that helps us to make our dreams real.
For you as an Aries…
In this current cycle, Saturn is making a harmonious aspect to your sign. Saturn should help you clear obstacles now and to get your ambitions in order, if that’s what you want. It’s about being organised and getting things down. In your solar 9th house, Saturn is asking you to begin to see the world through new eyes – your own. You are clearer and clearer on the rules of the game of life and can see widely and well. This transit is also important because of what comes next.
If you put in the hard work now, Saturn should help you reap the rewards later. However, we’re talking about long term commitment rather than instant gratification. It’s important now not to mistrust anything which you don’t understand, just because you don’t understand it. The 9th house is about your world view and Saturn might tempt you to limit that. Which is how you come back to looking at the world through your own eyes rather than someone else’s. Broaden your own vision. The 9th house is also about travel and study, so for many of you, a long awaited trip could materialise. Others will start a course of study which could last a long time or lay strong foundations for the future. You work on your philosophies this year and it’s important to remain flexible here.
Don’t let your views paint you into a corner. If you change your mind, don’t be afraid to admit it. For others still, this will be a year when you get in touch with your religious side, for others with your metaphysical side. Don’t get too esoteric though. You are laying down important tracks which you’ll use to travel to the future.
Keep things real. If you put in the ground work now, and stay mature and responsible, you’ll look back on this as a year when you made investments which took time to pay off, (and I don’t just mean financially). Keep your mind wide open for opportunities to rebuild your philosophies on life, so that they are in tune with where you want to go in the real world.
WHERE CAN YOU EXPECT CHANGE? A little note about the eclipses…
Every year brings eclipses of course. Eclipses are times when change is even more possible. It’s as though a door to another life opens up and we get to walk through it – or not.
You will feel the eclipse most if you are one of these signs or have one of these signs rising…
So as your Star sign is on the list, should you be worried? Not at all! Rather know that 2016 is a year where you really can change the course of your destiny. What are you going to do with this? Start to ask yourself what you really, really want – NOW!
For you as an Aries: This year, you get some big love action as the Full Moon eclipse takes place in your Love Zone in March. Stay tuned!
