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 Pisces – how lucky will you be this year?
Jupiter is moving through your 7th House of Love – this is one of the luckiest transits you could hope for, so stand by and prepare to become a lot more popular than you’ve been in ages (well, for at least 6 or so years…)
Jupiter is the planet of plenty and the 7th House is about Other People. You will be magnetically attractive to others over the next 9 months.
If you’re single, it’s one of the very best chances you’ll get in 12 years to meet someone and go all the way with it.
Already attached? This Jupiter transit is like a breath of fresh air and a new much more fun schedule for you and your partner to enjoy. (But if what you and/or your partner really wants is space from each other, Jupiter will also deliver. He loves freedom). But wait, there’s more. It’s not just all about romance.
You are also more likely to attract someone like a benefactor or teacher into your life now – someone to boost your confidence and point you in the right direction. Well-travelled people are also more likely to be within your sphere and you might be taking off away from it all more often yourself.
And perhaps best of all, this Jupiter transit will not only attract happier, more generous people into your life to share the Good Times with, you will also be happier and more generous yourself. Hence the popularity increase.
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 Pisces…
Wherever Saturn goes, lessons follow. Throughout 2016, Saturn is hanging out in your solar work zone offering you the chance to define and build your working life, if you know that you need to. What many of you will need to do in order to bring a new order to their professional lives is to overcome any niggling fear of failure.
Saturn can indeed bring fear and if he does, he challenges you to rise above that fear. Are there aspects of your public and professional life which do have you worried? If that’s the case, Saturn’s objective is to remind you that it’s hard work which brings rewards. This is an excellent time to seek the support and counsel of your co-workers, especially those who are older or somehow superior to you. If you can follow the lead of experts now, you will have risen to Saturn’s challenge.
This is a year when you realise that you only need to take one step at a time in order to climb the career ladder. And one where you realise that it’s the effort you put into your work which bring the rewards you crave. But don’t be duped into working just to maintain a lifestyle. Though you love the finer things in life – and know that many of these have a high price tag – try and look to your work for professional satisfaction as well as financial rewards.
Being responsible might be a burden, but it’s the best way forward now, so don’t be shy to slave away at work. You will be rewarded for your labours. Eventually. This is a year to sow seeds.
And between all this hard work and ‘sowing’, here’s one last thing to attempt in now; no matter how hard you work and no matter how long it takes to reap the rewards you’re chasing, try to enjoy your work as much as you can. If you face the daily grind grimly, the year will drag. Instead, this if this as an investment year which will pay big dividends in years to come, if you can just put your nose to the grindstone.
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 if 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 a Pisces: In 2016, you have eclipse energy all year. Could be the most amazing year you’ve had in decades.
