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 a Cancerian – how lucky will you be this year?
Get your skates on, it’s going to be another busy year. As Jupiter moves through your 3rd House of Short Trips and Speedy Travel, you can expect to be zooming hither and thither. Some of you will be racing around the globe, making pit stops in foreign lands the way the rest of us stop in at a café for a cuppa, others will be doing it closer to home. Either way, the overall vibe for your adventures is good.
If you need so badly to bust out of your backyard, Jupiter can help – though he’s more likely to actually help you enjoy being in your local neighbourhood. And speaking of the neighbourhood, strained relationships with neighbours should ease up now – either that or they just pack their bags and move on.
And if you know that you’re not going anywhere over the next 9 months (doubtful) then expect a whole slew of people to be coming to see you. Jupiter also rules siblings, so you can expect them to play a bigger and better part in your life over the coming year.
And Jupiter in this part of your chart has one other major gift to stuff into your 3rd House stocking. No kidding – this is the best one of all. Over the next 9 months, if you tap into the Jupiter vibe by doing all you can to think and talk and write positively, he will help you realise that we really do create our reality with our thoughts and that our reality is always so much better when we think positively.
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 a Cancerian
Wherever Saturn goes, lessons follow. Throughout 2016, Saturn is hanging out where he’s going to be asking you what you can do for others, as well as for yourself. In this part of your chart, he’s not too long away from being opposite your Sun, which is when you will be tested in various ways.
That won’t happen this year, but in the lead up, now is a good time to start making sure that you have a long list of good daily routines in place, so that you feel like life is in order. It’s a good idea now not to scatter your energies. If you can start to take a more serious approach to your wellbeing, you’ll be in the cosmic vibe. For some, there will be lessons about responsibility now. ‘Are you willing shoulder your burden?’ sounds like a heavy question.
If you share your burden with someone else—be that a business or romantic partner—you might be asked to carry a little more than you consider your share. No one would suggest you act like a load-carrying animal, but if you can take on a little more responsibility now, you could reap the rewards of your hard work later. Saturn also has lessons to teach you about your wellbeing now. This is not the time to allow gloomy thoughts to deplete your vitality. Health is a serious business and if you can get serious about doing all you can to boost yours, go for it.
You are laying foundations for the future with every healthy act! There really is a need to go slowly and steadily towards challenges, without overly exerting yourself. With Saturn in this part of the chart, you could feel as though the lessons you need to learn are hard to assimilate. There’s no rush. All in good time. If you feel discouraged about rising to meet the challenges, pace yourself. You’ll get there in the end.
Some of you not happy in your job are going to feel less like taking risks than usual this year, especially where your daily work is concerned. That’s fine, but only if you resolve not to be grim about your work. Saturn in this part of your chart asks you to work hard, for best results. Make the changes you need so that you are in a position to do just that and you could be quietly patting yourself on the back later.
WHERE CAN YOU EXPECT CHANGE? A little note about the eclipses…
You will feel the eclipse most if you are one of these signs or have one of these signs rising…
For you as a Cancerian: This year, you are not in the eclipse firing but as a Moon-ruled Cancerian, eclipse months are always big for you! This year the eclipses span March, August and September.
