YOUR STARS FOR 2016
(March 21 - April 20)
Mars, your ruler, moves into passionate Scorpio
at the start of the year,
making it impossible to deny your feelings.
Whatever it is that moves you –
emotionally, mentally, intellectually or even spiritually –
that is what you must dedicate yourself to in 2016.
But don’t overdo it.
Jupiter’s retrograde phase from January to May warns you cannot
charge at life at 100mph all the time.
Make quality work your goal and get creative – write a book,
record a song, launch a blog –
in April or August when the Sun’s influence is at a peak,
then sit back and enjoy the applause in the Autumn.
(April 21 - May 21)
A Solar Eclipse in the friendship area of your chart in March
means you will be expanding your area of activity,
discovering new places and meeting new people.
Who knew you could be so adventurous!
But there are old scores to settle as well and the influence of Mars
in January and February, then again in June and July,
will encourage you to assert yourself in one-to-one situations.
Be blunt if you have to.
Let loved ones and work colleagues know you will no longer
dance to their tune – not because it’s a bad tune
but because you have got one of your own.
(May 22 - June 21)
Saturn and Uranus
will pull you in opposite directions in 2016,
Saturn trying to keep you tied to the past,
Uranus trying to show you how wonderful the future could be
if you have the courage to let go
and go with the flow.
Mars in adventurous Sagittarius in August and September
should tip the balance in Uranus’s favour,
and by the close of the year you will be moving
in a radical new direction.
Relationship-wise you will need a strong and steady partner
to anchor your yearning for
thrill-seeking in the real world of work and family
and making ends meet.
A marvellous roller-coaster year!
(June 22 - July 23)
The Solar Eclipse
in your fellow Water sign of Pisces on March 9th
will encourage you
to look further afield for things to inspire you.
Even if you are one of those stay-at-home type Cancers
you will want to travel this year,
and your wanderlust will take you to some fantastic places
where you meet some remarkable people.
By the time of the second Solar Eclipse of the year, in September,
you may have put down roots
in a completely new environment.
Alternatively, you can stay where you are
and expand your awareness through books and study.
The world of the mind is your playground.
(July 24 - Aug. 23)
Mars, planet of action and ambition,
moves through the most dynamic area of your chart from March to May
and again through August and September
and these are the best months by far to begin some kind of
creative or artistic endeavour.
Never doubt you have what it takes to be the biggest and the best.
Never doubt you have the talent to see your name up in lights.
Success will be all the more enjoyable, of course,
if you can share it with someone special,
and Venus in the partnership area of your chart from
mid-February to mid-March
is sure to bring love into your life.
(Aug. 24 - Sept. 23)
Jupiter’s retrograde phase
from January to May will in some way hold you back
from realizing your dreams
and it’s inevitable you will feel frustrated.
But once the planet of good fortune turns in your favour again
there will be no stopping you and by the
time of the Solar Eclipse in your sign on September 1st
your life will be transformed.
It’s likely you will come into money later in the year
and you should use what you gain
to enrich both yourself and those you are closest to emotionally and mentally.
Virgo never stops learning.
What will the next stage of your education be?
(Sept. 24 - Oct. 23)
Jupiter’s move into your sign in early September
will in some way or other
reward you for the patience and commitment you have
shown through the rest of the year.
Libra may be the sign of the balance but sometimes it is hard
for even you to keep your cool,
especially when changes planet Uranus seems
so determined to disrupt
both your domestic arrangements and your relationships.
But life is a learning experience
and come December, when Jupiter really starts to shine,
your ability to see both sides of every story
will put you at a huge advantage.
Be amazing Libra!
(Oct. 24 - Nov. 22)
Mars in your sign at the start of the year
will endow you with a huge surge of energy
and in both your career and your private life
you will be making changes left, right and centre.
Not only that but another visit of Mars to your sign in June and July
will give you a second bite of the cherry –
and help you to clear up some of the mess you made earlier
in your headlong rush to be a success.
The other big influence on your year is Jupiter,
which remains in the friendship area of your chart until September.
It’s there to remind you that
you can’t do it all on your own.
(Nov. 23 - Dec. 21)
Sagittarius and Saturn both begin with the letter S
but there the similarity ends.
Sags are carefree and love taking risks,
while Saturn is cautious and not one to gamble.
So, with Saturn in your sign throughout the year there is sure to be tension,
BUT tension can be creative, and financially lucrative,
if you plan ahead and accept the need to compromise.
If you start the year slowly (by your standards at least) you can
build up a head of steam
that will make you unstoppable
when Mars moves in your favour in August and September.
For Sagittarius, there is no such word as “cannot”.
(Dec. 22 - Jan. 20)
Pluto in your sign
will continue to change your life
in subtle yet far-reaching ways, and as early as January 6th,
when Pluto joins with the Sun,
then again on February 6th,
when love planet Venus gets in on the act,
your outlook, your lifestyle,
indeed your very Capricorn DNA will undergo a transformation,
though it may not seem that dramatic at the time.
Where will this leave you?
Energised and liberated,
free to follow your own emotional and creative needs.
You will still have responsibilities, of course,
but they will no longer hold you back from
fulfilling your limitless potential.
(Jan. 21 - Feb. 19)
The Lunar Eclipse
in your fellow Air sign of Libra on March 23rd
will sweep away restrictions and by the time a New Moon
in the same sign
comes around at the start of October
you will be on a completely new path through life
and loving every moment of it.
But not everyone will be as delighted as you and some relationships
will fall by the wayside.
However, it is your chance for a new beginning
and you’ll have no intention of letting it pass.
Aquarius has as much right to shine
as anyone else
and you intend to dazzle and delight every chance you get.
(Feb. 20 - Mar. 20)
Jupiter, planet of good fortune,
stays in the partnership area of your chart until September,
by which time you will be on excellent terms
with people who can help you to move closer to realising your dreams,
and as the Solar Eclipse on September 1st
brings one major project to a successful conclusion
you will quickly move on to the next.
Saturn’s ongoing influence
will find ways to remind you that only quality work counts,
but you won’t need much guidance.
On every level –
mental, emotional, professional and financial –
you know a good thing when you see it:
