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 Taurean – how lucky will you be this year?
Break out the bunting! You’re in a classic Lucky Cycle. Jupiter is the planet of good fortune and for the next 9 months, he’s in the part of your chart where the dice more often rolls in your favour – your 5th House. Even though there may be other things going on in your chart which mean you still have to work hard and don’t have as much time off as you might like, the good news is that you should still manage to eke a lot of fun out of the coming 9 months.
The 5th House is where we express ourselves openly – and if you’ve forgotten what it feels like to do that, don’t worry. You really will remember over the coming year. It’s the part of our chart where we keep our Inner Child and good old Uncle Jupiter, who arrives laden with cheer and presents, is most certainly the one to bring your Inner Child out to play. For this reason, this transit is very positive where children (your own or someone else’s) are concerned. If you’re wanting to get pregnant anytime soon, start practicing! It’s also good for romance because nothing needs a bit of light-hearted relief like partnership. Forget about the snipping and the sniping, the coming 9 months will help you to remember how to amuse yourself with Someone Else.
Singles could easily meet more than one person to play with. Couples will reinvigorate their enjoyment of each other. Lastly, this is a very good transit if you have creative aspirations. Go for it. Travel is also extra likely this cycle.
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 Taurean…
Wherever Saturn goes, lessons follow. Saturn is now hanging out in your solar joint finances zone, limited partnerships offering you the chance to rebuild your financial life and make important financial commitments.
Joint finances might sound like an odd phrase, but it’s the umbrella term used in astrology to talk about the 8th house which covers salaries, taxes, inheritances and mortgages, as well as any other joint financial arrangements you can think of (eg in a romantic or business partnership). If the thought of complicated joint financial matters makes you want to run into a corner to hide away, this is the year to face your fears.
Accepting responsibility for your cash life is one of the main lessons you have facing you now, and learning to talk to anyone – from your boss to your bank manager – about dollars and cents, pounds and pence.
If a fear of taking responsibility of your finances is holding you back, this is a good time to rework those fears. Where do they come from? Do you leave bills unopened because you’re scared you can’t pay them, for example! Open them! Examine how you feel about cash and your cash management now. Confident? And if not, ask yourself why not.
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…
For you as a Taurus: This year, you are not in the eclipse firing line, so breathe a sigh of relief. Eclipses are great but they can be exhausting!
