Aries 2016 Horoscope

Aries 2016 Horoscope
2016 Horoscope Aries - Major Trends in 2016
Being the first sign of the zodiac and representing the awakening powers of spring, the astrological Ram is a frisky, impatient creature, quite prepared to lead from the front to make things happen, whether as inspiring pioneer or blunt battering ram. The last three years were very challenging, filled with crises. Happily you got through; the worst is over with. Most of the long-term planets have moved from their stressful aspect to you, and there should be a tremendous increase in your health and energy in 2016.

Horoscope 2016 Aries: Radical Changes in 2016 (The influence of transiting Uranus)
2016 will offer you the occasion for considerable and radical changes, which will eventually bring a greater stability and substance to your life. In actual fact you will cope with several situations, showing a responsible and mature attitude in making your choices; this will surprise you at first, so that it might be hard to understand how you have finally managed to be heeded in a context you have found difficult even to approach until now. Ever since Uranus, one of the most dynamic of planets, moved into your sign in March of 2011, change – sudden and dramatic – has been the theme of your life. By the time Uranus is finished with you in about five years’ time, you will be in radically different conditions and circumstances than you are now. All of you are feeling the changes, but those of you born early in the sign of Aries (March 20 to April 10) are feeling it the strongest. Part of this is not so pleasant. Sometimes we cling unconsciously to negative situations, relationships or mental patterns – we cling to a status quo that is actually destructive to us – and so Uranus has to take dramatic measures to release us from this bondage. Sometimes it is an earthquake, a tsunami, or some other natural disaster that does the trick. Sometimes other dramatic events happen. None of this is punishment, only liberation. With Uranus involved there is little we can do consciously to prevent the change; these things are not something you can plan for. The events are generally sudden and unexpected – things you wouldn’t dream of in a million years. With Uranus you can only expect the unexpected. But when the change happens, suddenly you are in a new life; suddenly you are free to follow the true desire of your heart. This is the blessing here. Uranus in your sign prompts you towards the new, and helps you clear the ground of any annoying impediments, which might prevent you from expressing yourself as you wish. Now you hold the necessary potential to test yourself and show the world that you are not so impulsive and unreliable as you are often said to be, but that you can think and then act accordingly, with consistency and determination. You will be able to seize opportunities in the most suitable moments and treasure the experience, perhaps even making radical changes in your life; you will be the undisputed protagonist, actor and director of a new way of thinking and living that are much more in tune with your true nature.

In some ways, 2016 offers you the opportunity to show the world your true abilities, the destinic potential that you bear and will be finally able put into practice; you will reap the fruits of such an investment in a very short time, and they will certainly be much more delicious than you imagined. Just remember you need to look ahead with absolute honesty, and never hide your real intentions behind ambiguous attitudes. In actual fact, when you let the shadowy side of your character prevail, you often feel a sense of failure and existential frustration; so try to avoid the unpleasant sensation of owning a fast car, but driving it as if it were an old one. From a certain point of view, 2016 invites you to become a little more concrete and cynical in achieving your priorities, regardless of any criticisms or comments from people around you. They could mislead you, preventing you from fully enjoying your success , which is mainly due to your merits and a small amount of luck.

2016 Aries Horoscope: Optimism and Expansion in 2016 (The influence of transiting Jupiter):
Jupiter has been in your 4th house of home and family since June 2013, and will remain there until July 16 of this year. Thus there are moves, renovations and an enlargement of the family circle going on, which all seem very happy. Jupiter in your 4th house suggests there will be a lot going on in the domestic scene during the first six months of the year. You might be thinking in terms of finding new accommodation or extending your present abode in which case you will be in luck and you will find the very home you are looking for without too much trouble or delay. Jupiter moves into your 5th house of children on July 16. This shows a happy, fun kind of period – a cosmic vacation. You start to experience the joy of life. This brings luck in speculations too. Aries of child-bearing age are more fertile than usual during that period.

Aries 2016 Horoscope: Tests and Responsibilities in 2016 (The influence of transiting Saturn):
Saturn moved into your 8th house in October of 2012 – a very nice transit for you as it moved away from its stressful position. This year you need to scrutinize your sexual activity more closely. There is a need to focus more on quality than quantity. Saturn knows how to do this. Saturn will ask searching questions about money and property, especially the resources you share with others, and the degree to which you rely on others’ input. You don’t have to adopt a personal austerity programme (though you might), but this is not a transit that favours a cavalier attitude to the folding stuff, or to how you and your partner/ex divide up resources.

Aries Horoscope 2016: Spirituality, Idealism and Creativity in 2016 (The influence of transiting Neptune):
On February 4 2012, Neptune, planet of mysticism, imagination and spiritual values, made a major move out of your 11th house and into your spiritual 12th house. The spiritual life is much more emphasized than usual and this will be a long term trend. What you could find now is you are more in touch with your intuition. You will also feel more aware of the needs of your family and friends. You might be inspired to give your voluntary help to charities, fund-raising and community ventures where the satisfaction will be in how you can help people who need it. There will be no fanfare of personal publicity but a lot of personal satisfaction through voluntary work. You will probably be asked to pay more attention to everything happening inside yourself, to those psychological and spiritual changes to which you have been growing accustomed for some time. Of course you have modified certain counterproductive attitudes in your life. Some of you may need to begin an individual psychological analysis, an alternative therapy, or follow any path which could help you look inside yourself and express the potential which has been submerged or blocked by a series of illusory convictions that you should now dismantle. So you can really try your hand at new situations and maximize your natural abilities, thus giving your life wide–ranging possibilities, which are the driving force for your success, both on a personal and professional level.

Horoscope 2016 Aries: Deep Transformations in 2016 (The influence of transiting Pluto)
Your prestige and popularity are highlighted with the powerful planet Pluto at the top of your chart. In 2016 and over the years ahead your self confidence and belief in yourself will grow stronger and stronger. Your innate charisma and outgoing personality will bring you into the public eye and this all goes to help you get to the top of the ladder in your career field and other areas of endeavour. You like everything up front and direct—spare the adjectives. So let’s take a glimpse at how the transition of 2016 may affect you. Regardless of what your natal ascendant or rising sign is, Aries and Capricorn form a challenging 90- degree angle to each other called a square. It’s a source of tension that prompts you to take action (something you’re good at) by initiating projects, relationships, communication, whatever it takes. When you want something, you tend to be focused and determined, and in 2016, you’re reaching for the new, the untried, the unexplored. You’re reaching with passion and resolve, and you aren’t easily intimidated when you encounter obstacles. In fact, you refuse to recognize obstacles and barrel right through anything that’s blocking you from what you desire. Aries is terrific at launching projects, but not as good at completing them. That could change this year. Pluto in Capricorn demands that you bring your ideas down to earth and express them in terms that other people will understand. You’re after what’s practical, grounded, efficient. You’re looking for new solutions that work. You’re the trailblazer, the entrepreneur, the maverick, the explorer. You’re forging new paths through the unknown. In your solar chart, Capricorn falls in your career area, so that will be the focus for the year. During Pluto’s long transit through this sign, your career will undergo profound and irrevocable change. You may, for instance, change careers, suddenly and without apology or explanation. Equally possible, you may fall from power or enjoy a rapid ascension in terms of promotions, salary, recognition. Again, it all depends on your intent, emotions, beliefs

Taurus 2016 Horoscope

Horoscope 2016 for Taurus

2016 Horoscope Taurus - Major Trends in 2016

You can consider the New Year as a benchmark to let you show your real potential and understand the priorities in your life. Last year, 2013, was basically a good year. The long-term planets were not stressing you out and were mostly friendly towards you.

Taurus 2016 Horoscope: Tests and Responsibilities in 2016 (The influence of transiting Saturn):
Late in the year 2012, in October, Saturn moved into Scorpio and into stressful alignment with you. Those of you born later in the sign will feel it more intensely in 2016. So, there is more resistance now. This stress is not enough to cause failure, but it does slow you down a bit. Your energy needs to be watched and there is more resistance to your goals.

SATURN’S AGENDA FOR YOU IN 2016 couldn’t be clearer: start the year as you intend to finish it, keep a steady pace throughout, remaining impervious to any squalls that blow your way, and not becoming over-excited by spells of good fortune. Be the best Bull you can be: cautious but productive, generous but financially practical. Saturn’s move into Scorpio was also a move into your 7th house of love and social activities. Current marriages or serious kinds of relationships are getting a good testing; business partnerships too. In general there is less social activity in the year ahead. With Saturn in opposition throughout the year, the first requirement is that you play the long game and have a plan in place. Saturn (Kronos to the Greeks) is about time, and you are likely to be dealing with issues and relationships set in motion 1999-2000, when the taskmaster planet was in your sign. In part, 2016 represents the karmic pay-off from the last 15 years. Happily, Saturn’s demands accord with much of the Taurean character, a call for hard-headed realism and unremitting effort. The Bull can do both. Since Saturn also represents authority figures – the establishment in general and the patriarchy in particular – expect a few tussles with mean-spirited bosses and corporate conformists. Be prepared to tick boxes to satisfy them, and in semi- social situations opt for formality and restraint ahead of sporting your jade-green kimono or raffish blazer (don’t fret, they get their airing, along with your most carefree side). Be prepared to take on more responsibility. Don’t shy away from big, scary projects – they pay you back amply in the long run. This is the classical transit of “Saturn in opposition”, but this definition is just a media trivialization. In your case, you are in a long phase of reflection, a useful time to clarify your real needs, first to yourself and then to others, in order to feel deeply satisfied with the choices you made in the past. You will find the right stimuli to put an end to faded relationships (both in the sentimental and professional sphere); they won’t make sense any more to you or the other person, since you have stubbornly dragged on a bond due to your sense of duty and a certain feeling of guilt, which often obsesses you when you have to face a separation. So you should know that continuing a useless relationship is not worth it.

Yet the year isn’t all about Saturn. You will eventually get rid of the superfluous, especially in autumn, when a new phase will begin and extend to the next year; you will feel the need to rationalize several aspects of your life, avoid wasting your energy in situations which have turned into dead branches you must cut off once and for all. Try to not to look elsewhere for what you already hold in your hands and maximize the resources you command or can easily manage. They will give you excellent results, certainly much better than you would expect.

Taurus Horoscope 2016: Spirituality, Idealism and Creativity in 2016 (The influence of transiting Neptune):
Neptune, the most spiritual of all the planets, made a major move into your 11th house of friends last year. He will be there for another 13 or so years, and so this is a long-term trend. Your social sphere, your friendships are getting spiritualized and more refined. You will be attracting more spiritual types into your life as a result.

Horoscope 2016 Taurus: Radical Changes in 2016 (The influence of transiting Uranus)
In March of 2011 Uranus made a major move into your 12th house of spirituality and will be there for another five years or so – another long-term trend. Uranus is your career planet, thus this transit has important implications in your career which we will discuss later on. Mostly though, it indicates dramatic, radical change in your inner, spiritual life. Taureans are basically traditional, conservative people, but not in spiritual matters now. You are experimental and scientific now. You are changing teachers, regimes and practices, probably multiple times. Those of you who have never been involved in spirituality will probably get involved this year or in coming years. Those of you already on the path will be changing that path. There is much ferment and upheaval in this area of life. There is also much upheaval in charitable or altruistic organizations that you are involved with. You are a hard worker and you have a gift for organisation. With Uranus in your private zone, it is more likely that you will be found in positions and professions behind-the-scenes. Combine this with Neptune in your social zone, however, and vocations like marriage guidance counselling, social work, nursing and medicine could prove to be satisfying choices if you are thinking of a change of career.

Horoscope 2016 Taurus: Deep Transformations in 2016 (The influence of transiting Pluto)
You’re known for your resoluteness, your ability to finish what you start, for your stubbornness and fixed opinions. But you’re also known for your sensuality and that sensuality extends to all things—sex, foods, art, music, the entire spectrum of human experience. In your solar chart, Pluto in Capricorn changes your worldview at profound and irrevocable levels. If, for instance, you were brought up in a household that adhered to traditional religious views, then you may become, during this long transit, the complete opposite. A Buddhist, a Sufi, a spiritualist, an agnostic, an atheist. Another area that will undergo transformation is your attitudes or beliefs about foreigners, foreign countries, the global economy. Let’s say that you grew bitter during the years that Pluto was in Sagittarius—1995 to 2008. You lived through Clinton to Bush to Obama and witnessed 9/11 and the terrible divisiveness that grew in this country. Maybe your beliefs went from one extreme to another, or you were among the fortunate few who found a middle ground with which you could live. Well, now you begin to understand the true meaning of a Pluto transit to your ninth house. Your beliefs must be your own—not those you’ve adopted from parents, teachers, friends. Your philosophy during this transit will be evolving, changing, becoming more holistic, more integrated into who you are. Other areas that may go through change: publishing, higher education, professional goals, your attitude and beliefs about the law. If you’re self- employed, your product or services could expand to overseas markets, and you’ll reap the benefits. Pluto’s transit is apt to bring travel abroad too, but not for the usual reasons. You may be on a quest of some kind, trying to fulfill a need you may not fully understand. Ashram? Yoga retreat? A second home in a country that is the focus of your soul?

With regard to your health, try to avoid any kind of excess (food in particular), especially in the first half of the year. Otherwise, your body might be affected, by suffering from little problems related to your metabolism and a possible weight gain, which would then be hard to lose.

Gemini 2016 Horoscope

2016 Horoscope Gemini - Major Trends in 2016

Ever alert, swift of thought and eager to savour the next of life’s multifarious delights, Gemini is customarily a sign in a rush, if not in a spin. It follows that patience is not always the most prominent of the Twins’ many virtues. For the first month of 2016, however, you are asked to stop fidgeting and concentrate on matters in hand, most notably the mundane world of money, property and assets. Here, detail is everything. Though Geminis are good at flying by the seat of their designer pants, there is too much at stake to be anything less than thorough, especially if you are at loggerheads with an adversary, be it an ‘ex’, a bank, an employer or the taxman. In your pursuit of an ethical, equitable outcome, resist anyone trying to push you around – with Pluto involved, best expect adversaries to be unscrupulous. In response, try to keep things impersonal. You’ve had many years of sudden, dramatic changes. One minute things are a certain way and then, all of a sudden, life is completely different. Many have experienced these kinds of things, but for you it has been non-stop. Things have settled down a bit the past two years – Uranus has moved away from its stressful aspect to you – but you’ve learned by now how to live with insecurity, and this was the whole point. Nothing on this earthly plane is ever permanent and we need to learn how to handle impermanence.

2016 Gemini Horoscope: Optimism and Expansion in 2016 (The influence of transiting Jupiter):
Jupiter’s move into Cancer in June 2013 initiated a two-year cycle of prosperity. So the year ahead is prosperous. Jupiter in your income zone suggests good fortune will come your way in the form of extra money during the first half of the year 2016. This will help boost your confidence and certainly by the autumn you will be feeling more outgoing and more willing to get involved in community activities. It is unlikely though that you will suffer greatly when it comes to finances in the first half of the year. This transit will have the undeniably pleasing effect of you always seeming to find the cash you need when you need it. You will have your lucky moments, financially speaking, but don’t ever assume this is the norm. Neptune’s move into your career house indicates more idealism in career matters. You tend to be idealistic about your career anyway, but now even more so. You will be known more for your charitable activities, your spiritual attainments, than for your outer career achievements.

In 2016 your patience will be tested, maybe as never before, especially in the first part of the year; in this regard you may literally move into action and show the world that you are not like a flighty teenager, but can give proof of great maturity and single-mindedness, especially when you are under pressure. Of course, this might not please those who like to consider you as an eternal Peter Pan, using this excuse to justify their own failure and pettiness. In the end, you will overcome this tense psychological phase, feeling stronger and more convinced of what you want from life, and also able to shed light on what kind of person you desire as a partner. It will be absolutely necessary to clear the ground of what is completely futile, such as commitments, responsibilities and expectations, especially in regard to people who now have nothing to offer but problems.

Horoscope 2016 Gemini: Deep Transformations in 2016 (The influence of transiting Pluto):
Yes, we all know about your communication skills, your ability to make friends with anyone, to strike up a conversation with even the strangest of strangers. It’s your defense, your gift, your reason for being. We all know you’re capable of changing your mind about anything anywhere, anytime. You figure it’s your birthright. Others may think you’re stretching the truth to accommodate your vision of reality, but you really aren’t. So here’s the deal. Until 2024, you’re compelled to deal with what is, as it is. The present moment and all that. What does this mean? Until 2024, you’re delving into everything that goes bump in the night—ghosts, hauntings, reincarnation, communication with the dead, divination systems. But you’re also dealing with mortgages, loans, insurance, taxes, inheritances, lawyers—all that Woody Allen stuff that may drive you completely nuts. But you find that you’re up to the task, that you can do whatever is required. One possible repercussion of Pluto in Capricorn is that your partner’s income experiences precipitous ups and downs until she really understands her beliefs about money. If you read about sun signs, Geminis are often depicted as “flaky, shallow, flighty, unreliable,” and a host of other unflattering adjectives. If you know people who think of you in those terms (and let’s hope they aren’t family members or friends), then Pluto’s transit prompts them to change their minds and to see you in a much more positive light. Of course, by the time they come around, you’ve moved on to people who have appreciated your gifts from the start. As you proceed through this Pluto transit, your beliefs about the universe and about what is possible are transformed at the most fundamental and profound levels. If you started out as a skeptic about metaphysical ideas, you end up as a believer because you’ve had too many experiences to think otherwise.

Cancer 2016 Horoscope

2016 Horoscope Cancer - Major Trends in 2016

As Cancer is the first water sign of the zodiac it is also Cardinal, making you emotional but dynamic. The other two water signs are as emotional as yourself but Fixed (intense) in Scorpio’s case, and Mutable (adaptable) in Pisces’ case; both play a major role in 2016, helping you stabilise your love life and your creative drive. Indeed, the major task set you in 2016 is to understand your heart and, perhaps, to retune its strings. The zodiac’s four Cardinal signs mark the two solstices and equinoxes – the longest and shortest days and the two halfway points, and in 2016 these four points of the cosmic clock usher in distinct seasons of your year. The winter solstice of December makes relationships your first call of the New Year. The spring equinox puts a rocket under career prospects, while the summer solstice opens an inspirational birthday month. Much changes then. The Autumn Equinox heralds a more inward-reaching scenario as Saturn puts all matters of the heart under examination, a process made easier by the auspicious presence of visionary Jupiter in your skies for the first part of the year. Propitious times indeed.

You have come through two very rough years. You were ‘paying your dues’, getting tougher and stronger; everything you got was earned by the sweat of your brow. In 2016 you start to see the rewards of your efforts and hard work. It will seem to you that you have become lucky, but the truth is that you are merely harvesting the seeds planted in the past two years. Many of you have high aspirations, and this is good. But in order to achieve these aspirations, the spiritual and mental muscles needed to be developed. The reflexes had to be trained – hence the reason for the difficult period. No one would expect to run in the Olympics without training, and this was what you were going through.

Horoscope 2016 Cancer: Radical Restructuring in 2016 (The influence of transiting Uranus square Pluto):
2016 will encourage great achievements in every respect, and you will feel in the firing line of a series of situations, which may radically change your life. So you may think of this fateful 2016 as the end of a world which is no longer in tune with your nature; be ready to enter a much broader universe, full of stimuli, which will finally give back to your life the colours and joys you have missed for so long. Obviously, this process will develop gradually, but will not pass unnoticed, prompting you to take actions and expose yourself to situations you have never imagined before. You want to be the undisputed protagonist of your choices, preventing others from deciding for you or forcing you to do things that don’t suit you or your ideas. Perhaps people around you will say that you have a bad character, that you are unreliable, childlike and moody as ever, but these adjectives to which you are accustomed will not hurt you any longer. Actually, this year you are firmly bent on distinguishing yourself, overturning old rules and habits, questioning everything that will turn into an obstacle for your self-fulfilment, both in your professional and emotional sphere. In actual fact, you will feel the urge to redesign your life, to get free of monotonous habits, which hold you to a past that will never come back. Of course, in certain moments, you might be overwhelmed by a longing for someone or something; try to turn it into a positive and calm feeling, in order to accept and overcome the reasons for your bad mood. This will lead you to recover your peace of mind and discover a new path for your personal growth, the beginning of a new life, which is more focused on yourself and your needs, without the risk of becoming cold or selfish.

2016 Cancer Horoscope: Optimism and Expansion in 2016 (The influence of transiting Jupiter):
Jupiter has moved into Cancer on June 26 2013, and you see the inner growth manifest itself tangibly. Others will see it too. With Jupiter in your sign between January and July 16, you might think you are one of the lucky ones, this year as you aren’t feeling the difficulties and hardships of life as badly as those around you. This doesn’t mean life will be easy. There will be days when you will feel exhausted but life will offer you pleasurable opportunities in other areas that can help make up for any frustration to do with your job. Jupiter’s influence can help broaden your horizons and widen your sphere of interests and activities. If you are studying or training for a future career, you are likely to see pleasing progress providing you are willing to work hard for results. So remember: put in the effort and a successful outcome is almost certain to crown these efforts. It’s a good year to do all you can to develop your natural talents and to keep an eye out for when you can use these to your best advantage. It will also be advisable to keep a tight control on expenditure to avoid wasting money as can often happen while Jupiter journeys through your sign. Since Jupiter has a reputation as a lucky planet, not least with money, extra cash may be part of the scenario, though Jupiter’s links with Saturn suggest it’s earned rather than ‘free’. Jupiter’s other roles include that of teacher and adventurer, making overseas jaunts an unexpected possibility, and promising favours to those of you in education.

Because the obstructions that have been hindering you are taken away, and your muscles are stronger, you should see rapid progress to your goals. It will be a successful year ahead, prosperous too, from July 16 onwards. It is unlikely though that you will suffer greatly when it comes to finances as during the latter half of the year, Jupiter will be in your income zone. This will have the undeniably pleasing effect of you always seeming to find the cash you need when you need it. You will have your lucky moments, financially speaking, but don’t ever assume this is the norm.

Leo 2016 Horoscope

Leo Horoscope 2016

2016 Horoscope Leo - Major Trends in 2016

Royalty understandably likes to asociate itself with the Lion and its fierce, noble reputation. Your sign, however, is about more than proudly looking down on lesser mortals (though Leo can do that too), it is ultimately concerned with the exaltation of the self, with the idea that everyone can be their own king and queen. It follows that Leos aren’t averse to a spot of self-display and drama. In 2016 your chances to shine come fitfully.

Most of 2013 was plain sailing. The long-term planets were either kind to you or leaving you alone. You had abundant energy, especially when compared to past years, and so overall success and the attainment of your goals was more likely. Towards the end of the year, in October, Saturn moved into a stressful alignment with you. This created more resistance to your will and goals, but not enough to thwart them. Saturn slowed you down a bit, but success should have still happened. This trend continues in the year ahead. Health is basically good, but needs a bit more watching this year.

Uranus, your love planet, has been in Aries for three years now. He makes harmonious aspects with your Sun and for the first half of 2013 was making nice aspects with Jupiter. So the love life was good. This trend also continues for the first half of 2016.

Jupiter moved through your 10th house of career in 2011 and 2012. This brought much career success to you in the form of honour, elevation, pay rises, promotions and recognition. In June 2013 Jupiter moved into your 12th house of spirituality and is there for the first half of 2016. So during the first half of the year your growth is spiritual and internal. Many powerful things are happening – secret things, sacred things – but they are not overt. Those of you already on a spiritual path will deepen your practice. There will be many spiritual breakthroughs during that period. This is a period of internal growth that will usher in a two-year prosperity cycle.

Saturn is in your 4th house of home and family and he can have a restricting influence on this area. If there are delays in getting work done in the home or if you find yourself having to take on heavy commitments relating to the family, Saturn is the planet that’s responsible for this.
As the year ends you will have some serious decisions to make and these could cause a few alterations to your lifestyle. There will be people you know you can confide in and they will be extremely useful in helping you solve your personal problems. The sex life and sexual practices are becoming more refined and spiritualized. This trend began last year and will continue for many more years.

Applause. Recognition. They say it’s what you live for, what you crave, that it’s your reason for being. While it’s true that Leos can excel in any profession they enter, not every Leo hungers for the limelight. Some work tirelessly behind the scenes, drawing their satisfaction from the way they change other people’s lives through their work for a particular cause or belief. During Pluto’s transit of Capricorn, you will discover new depths in your daily work, new ways of tackling old issues and challenges, and nothing will be business as usual. You will be called upon to make your ideas and actions tangible, solid, grounded, practical. When others ask you to explain what you mean, you’ll have to spell it out, a challenge for someone who often explains on the spur of the moment. You won’t be able to get by on just your charm, your flair for drama, your wit and talent. You’ll have to produce what others can sink their teeth into. Pluto in Capricorn, an earth sign. Uh, right? Earth is not your favorite element. Earth suffocates fire, kills it. And yet even for you, Leo, earth serves a purpose. It urges you to decompress, to pay attention to the minutiae of your daily life—grocery store runs, cooking, what you eat and when you eat it, whether you’re getting enough exercise and are taking care of yourself. There could be health issues under this transit—or at least the propensity for such—but it’s mitigated by your awareness of your body. Read Louise Hay’s You Can Heal Your Body. You will never again feel the same about what causes physical discomfort, illness, or disease. The other possible ramifications of this transit are more subtle and concern your career. In a time of transition, with Pluto forming a beneficial angle to your professional area, it’s possible that you may change careers in midstream. Just when you seem to be on a winning path, you switch. Don’t obsess too much about it. Things are unfolding as they are intended to for your greater enrichment and evolution.

Virgo 2016 Horoscope

2016 Horoscope Virgo - Major Trends in 2016

As most Virgos have their head firmly screwed-on(rogue fantasists do exist), with their feet equally firmly on the floor, lucky breaks don’t figure large in your sign’s outlook. Instead, Virgos incline to the view of moviemaker Sam Goldwyn: ‘The harder I work the luckier I get’.

As with Gemini, the past ten years have been all about dealing with change – sudden, dramatic, personal earthquake kind of change – and learning to deal with the fear and insecurity that this brings. When something happens a couple of times we can chalk it up to coincidence. But when something keeps happening over and over, there is something behind it. You were like the major league ball player who had trouble hitting the curve ball. So, naturally, when the opposing team saw that, all the player ever got was curve balls. He had no option but to learn to hit the curve ball. Once he mastered the art, he didn’t see too many more of them. Your curve ball was change and insecurity. Change kept coming and coming, until it ceased to ruffle you, until you actually became comfortable with it. Now that you are comfortable with it, the activity abates. You won’t have to deal with this kind of phenomenon for another 20 years or so.

In June 2013 Jupiter moved into your 11th house of friends and is there for the first half of 2016. So the year ahead is a strong social year. You have met – and will meet – new and important friends. Your social circle is very much expanded now. You are enjoying your friends and they you. This expansion of the social circle continues until July 16. Be bold and outgoing as this is what Jupiter in your 11th house is telling you to do, Virgo. The sky is the limit as far as opportunities for pursuing your personal and social ambitions are concerned. But don’t overdo it! Know the difference between coming over as being confident, or looking to others as being a show-off.

Things began to stabilize for you in 2011 as Uranus left its stressful aspect to you; 2011 was easier than 2010, and 2012 was easier than 2013. This year, 2016, is slightly challenging, but a piece of cake compared to 2008–2010. Everything is relative. Uranus spent a lot of time – over seven years – in your 7th house of love. Thus the love life has been highly unstable. Many a divorce or break up took place from 2003 to 2010. Things are much calmer now and relationships have a much better chance of enduring now and in the coming years. In March 2011 Neptune made a major move into your 7th house and the whole love life is becoming more refined, elevated and spiritualized.

You’re the perfectionist of the zodiac, the one who attempts to make every experience something so perfect that it will shine like a jewel in memory. You quickly discover that this shine is not endemic to every jewel and that life isn’t that perfect either. But hey, you’re actually an optimist—something you won’t find in most descriptions of your sign, which seem to equate Virgo with the kiss of death. You really desire life to be a fairy tale, in some form or other, and if you’re persistent, which many of you are, you’ll gradually learn that you’re the script-writer of your life. Pluto’s transit of Capricorn, a fellow earth sign, should be beneficial for you—profound and transformative but beneficial. Your love life, your creativity, your relationship with your children, if you have any, and everything you do for fun and pleasure will be vastly changed by 2024. You might argue, justifiably so, that change is inevitable over the course of the next thirteen years. But with Pluto, the change is deep and irrevocable. Pluto in Capricorn urges you to explore in a focused, directed way the parameters of your creativity, your worldview and spiritual beliefs, your romantic expectations and needs in personal relationships. And because Capricorn is involved in this equation, your career is part of the larger picture. What is it that you really want to do? Pluto brings personal power and an awareness of your own place in the universe. Heady stuff, for sure. But you, Virgo, integrate this knowledge into who you are, how you act, and what you think. You figure out that our realities are a reflection of our deepest beliefs, that we create our lives from the inside out.

Now that Saturn has moved out of your money house (in October 2012) you should feel an immediate increase in earning power. Finances are lot easier this year than last. Communications, however you understand the term, are under emphasis throughout the year, thanks to Saturn’s residency in the talk-talk zone of your ‘scope, one that includes blogging, Tweeting, publishing, lecturing or landing a gig announcing traffic updates on the radio. Such involvements open doors for you between July and November. Since the power of the word (written or spoken) is powerful in the latter half of 2016, choose what you say with care. If you are involved with education, project yourself with due gravitas. Research, analysis, strong points for many Virgos, yield impressive results. If you have siblings, assess carefully how much it is appropriate to lean on them or ask for their support - with Saturn in residence it looks conditional. Saturn in Scorpio, in your communication zone, draws attention to community and neighbourhood involvements. It could therefore be that you will be faced with conflicting loyalties up until the end of June when your links with community and voluntary work will distract you at times from taking full advantage of opportunities that come your way at work.

Libra 2016 Horoscope

2016 Horoscope Libra - Major Trends in 2016

The Libran scales represent several things; good judgment, social poise, exquisite taste, fair play, justice and peace. In practice of course, those scales are rarely at equilibrium; even a small imbalance can set them swinging wildly. Libra and moodswings? It’s been known! Themes of fair play and justice figure large in your horoscope in the first half of 2016. Just outcomes to relationship problems must be found, and your social idealism channelled (like fellow air signs Aquarius and Gemini, Libra has a humanitarian streak).

The raw ore probably doesn’t enjoy the smelting process too much. The heat is beyond all endurance. Yet, the final product is a pure metal. Everyone with high aspirations goes through crucible-type years, and the higher the aspiration, the more intense the crucible will be. The past two years were like that. Perhaps you thought that you were being pushed over the limit, but this was not the case. The Higher Power and his agents, the planetary forces, are intelligent. Every ordeal is carefully measured. Just enough heat is applied to do the job and not an iota more. These ordeals were not punishments as you may have thought, nor bad luck. These were actually the answers to prayer. You wanted certain high things and in order to have them in a proper way these testings were necessary. Certain psychological impurities had to be melted away. Only the crucible experience can bring this about. You see this now, but at the time it wasn’t that apparent.

Saturn, as you have doubtless observed, is a skinflint planet (though good work is always rewarded). With the taskmaster in occupation of your cash zone throughout 2016, a personal austerity programme is no bad idea.

In March 2011 Uranus entered your 7th house of love. Existing relationships were severely tested and many did not make it. Uranus will be here in 2016 and for another five years or so. Love is highly unstable. The whole social sphere is being dramatically changed. The spring Equinox arrives with a bang and quite likely a bolt of lightning. Relationships present past and future come up for intense scrutiny at this point, thanks to an incendiary planetary combination. The rams (of any sign) with whom you will be locking horns in spring look more than frisky – headbangers maybe. The combination of Mars and Prometheus on March is fierce and impatient, while the Libra’s full Moon – promises to put you on the spot; hog the limelight but keep out of confrontation’s way. Those in unavoidably adversarial conditions need to be at your most diplomatic during the Ram’s month – barter and compromise. The myth of Prometheus is about human emancipation – he was the immortal who gave humanity fire - and the relationship cycle that began in 2010 has a liberating quality. Prometheus/Uranus is disruptive of romances that have lost spark and generous in providing unexpected alternatives; fancy a wild fling with a renegade scientist, a flame-haired temptress or an Occupy activist? Even if you are staying put, a more experimental phase is underway – whatever it takes to put the balance right, remember.

Neptune, the most spiritual of all the planets, entered your 6th house of health in 2012. This is a positive development. You need to be focused more on health these days. But also it shows that you are exploring the abundant spiritual resources of health and energy. You are being shown how to tap into them and solve many problems.

You begin your year with Jupiter in your 10th house of career. So the career is going to blossom this year, each according to their stage in life. Jupiter, planet of expansion at the top of your chart during the first half of the year brings its beneficial influence to bear on your professional goals, your job and material welfare.

You’re the peacemaker of the zodiac—the one who dislikes confrontation, aggression, disharmony, war. You aren’t the type who draws lines in the sand and dares some abstract enemy to cross it. You aren’t, never were, and never will be a bully. Your soul gravitates toward beauty in the arts, music, theater, photography, literature. Ultimately, you seek balance and harmony, the very qualities that may elude you. As Pluto transits Capricorn and your solar fourth house, you will find that your home and family life, your domestic environment, undergo deep, transformative changes. You may start a family—or get divorced; you and your significant other buy a home or property together—or part ways; your parents find a path to independent living or move in with you. The idea here is that the choices are either/or, without nuances or gray areas. These possibilities are only that. The transit may unfold quite differently for you. The choices are difficult but you make them because you must. A move is possible under this transit. But then again, over a period of thirteen years, most of us might move once. Yet this move, if you make it, will be transformative. You might find the neighborhood, city, or country that speaks to your soul. You might meet your soul mate, if you haven’t already. There will be changes within your home life. While all of this is occurring, other indicators suggest expansiveness in your love life, creativity, with your children, and with what you do for fun and pleasure. In other words, astrology isn’t about just one transit, one influence, a singular energy. It’s about how all these energies mesh and interact with your birth chart. In the end, Libra, you’re the one who chooses what’s right for you. You’re the one who creates your life—not the stars, not some amorphous influence somewhere—but you. That’s what Pluto’s transit through Capricorn teaches you.

Your financial priorities come into focus as Saturn in Scorpio travels through your 2nd house. Stick at it and your efforts to raise some capital or increase your income will be successful. Remember: patience is a virtue!

Scorpio 2016 Horoscope

2016 Horoscope Scorpio - Major Trends in 2016

Unlike maritime Cancer and super-soaked Pisces, it’s easy to overlook that Scorpio is a water sign. After all, the Scorpion is a creature of hot deserts. The Phoenix, another Scorpio symbol, likewise arrives in fire. Nonetheless, Scorpio is one corner of the zodiac’s emotionally driven water triangle, its passions flowing deep and dark - the ocean depths are part of Scorpio’s domain, along with misty swamps and dank fens.

In October 2012 Saturn moved into your own sign and will be there until December 2016. This shows that you are taking on more responsibility, more burdens. You have a need to be more serious about life. Saturn in Scorpio will challenge you and with Uranus in your career zone, you might feel particularly up in the air at times, where your work and career schedules are concerned. You need to prepare yourself for setbacks and for increasing responsibilities as this is very much a part of Saturn’s theme. But never lose hope or give up because Saturn always brings rewards for work that has been well done and Saturn’s rewards aren’t fleeting ones. They tend to be substantial and long-lasting even if sometimes they seem late in arriving!. Health will be good, but more delicate than last year. In 2016 Saturn asks you to plumb your emotional depths and exhibit Scorpio’s intensity, commitment and resilience. Over 2016 you can grow as an individual and leave your mark on the outside world - hard work, to which Scorpios are not averse, pays you back tenfold in the long term. If you want to go in for a spot of phoenix-from-the-flames transformation, Saturn will help you regenerate. Saturn is not the planet of the light touch, as October birthdays may already have discovered, along with 1983 and 1954 birthdays, who are simultaneously on their respective first and second ‘Saturn Return’. Saturn represents a reality check, a point of karmic reckoning, when decisions you made seven, fifteen and 29 years back return – have they worked out? If not, you may choose to cut your losses and embark on a different course. Home and career shifts coincide strongly with Saturn transits and when taking action on these, the second half of this year is crucial. Relationships also correspond strongly with the Saturn cycle of beginnings and endings.

Events will move fast during the first half of the year while Jupiter is in your 9th house. Where Saturn is the Lord of Necessity, Jupiter is the Lord of Possibility – you have to be shrewd about where your advantage lies. While Saturn has you ‘under heavy manners’ (i.e. best behaviour), Jupiter gives you buoyancy and free air miles, or a holiday with meaning. There is a strong chance of travel or you will be communicating regularly with people from overseas. At times you won’t know whether you are coming or going but you will enjoy the exciting atmosphere. You will be kept on the move mentally and physically for a lot of the time especially during the first half of the year. After June there’s an increasing emphasis on your profession when you could be offered a job you hadn’t expected to get. Or a promotion in your existing line of business will encourage you to take a positive approach to your future.

Ever since Pluto, the Lord of Scorpio Horoscope, entered your 3rd house of communication in 2008, communication and intellectual interests have been important. You are into learning and teaching, expanding your knowledge and sharing it with others. Now with the ruler of the 3rd house in your own sign, these interests are even stronger and seem very successful in the year ahead. It’s a very nice period for writers, journalists or teachers. Students below college level have good fortune in their studies now. The mind is sharp, learning goes well. As the most emotionally intense and psychic sign of the zodiac, little escapes you. You’re the type who walks into a room filled with strangers, your psychic antennae twitch a couple times, and you’re immediately in-undated with a flow of intuitive information about the people around you. This can happen on a conscious or unconscious level, but either way, you’ll find whatever you need to know to work the room. Or the entire conference. Or the university. Or the world. Pluto’s transit of Capricorn will benefit you. Earth (Capricorn) mixes with water (your sign). This transit occurs in your solar third house of communication, your daily conscious world, your neighborhood and community, your relationships with relatives. It impacts how you communicate. Even though you often hold back, maintaining your own space, your own counsel, you certainly don’t mince words once the dam opens. And with Pluto moving through the communication sector, you’re primed for change, bottom lines, investigation and research, and psychic development. During this transit, your relationship with your siblings will change considerably. If there has been injury in these relationships, you have a chance to heal the relationship. If there has been misunderstanding, you have an opportunity to put things right again. If you want to move from your current neighborhood, you have opportunities to do that too. The point with this Pluto transit is that you become aware of how powerful you are as an individual, and that if you wield this power in a judicious way, so that everyone around you benefits, you win the day. During this transit, it’s important that you heed any and all synchronicities that you experience. These events are signposts of intuitive guidance—messages from the universe that you’re on the right path

In 2012, Neptune made a major (once in 14 years) move, into your 5th house of children and fun, and will be there for the long term. Personal creativity will be unusually good. You need to be alert for the inspiration that is pouring down upon you continuously. It also makes Scorpios of child-bearing age much more fertile than usual, especially after June 27.

Sagittarius 2016 Horoscope

2016 Horoscope Sagittarius - Major Trends in 2016

Unlike most zodiac signs, your symbol is a mythological being, the Centaur, a creature that alternates between earthy equine pleasures and lofty philosophising. Whether they are being wild horse or fearless thinker, Sagittarians do not like confinement - the impulse to explore new frontiers is strong. Hence Sagittarius’ association with aviation and science fiction, as reflected by Sags like Jimi Hendrix, Stephen Spielberg and other artists who artists who spurn boundaries. Yet in the second half of 2016 , boundar ies confront you, specifically those between you and significant others, be they spouses, lovers, ex’s, tennis partners or business buddies.

After eight or so years of intense stress, of challenge, disruptions, psychological earthquakes and insecurity, 2012 and 2013 were like a picnic in the park. It’s as if you had paid your dues to life and now you are an accepted member. No need anymore to deal with the previous challenges. Many of the other signs – Cancer, Libra, Capricorn – had the opposite phenomenon. They are facing what you have already faced. Previously they were coasting and you were struggling. Now it’s the other way round. Because you have gone through many, many tests, you are now in a position to help others go through them. The cosmos was not punishing you. It was actually making you ready for real love (which happens last year) and for the role you are to play in life. The Olympic athlete probably doesn’t enjoy the gruelling – and often painful – training schedule. It is only when it is time to compete that he or she recognizes the value of it. Many of you were pushed to the edge, but happily you were not pushed over it.

Jupiter, planet of expansion will be in your 8th house of investment and property during the first half of the year 2016 . You might see benefits coming through the sale of property or as past investments come to fruition. An inheritance might also provide you with money and this is something you had not expected to come your way.

On July 16 2016 Jupiter will move in Leo, into your 9th house. This is a transit which could bring benefits of a more adventurous and enlightening nature. Travel, overseas connections, getting involved in further education or studying a religious/philosophical subject that fascinates you are all possibilities towards the end of the year. This is another wonderful aspect for students, but here it affects those at college or university level. It shows success in their studies and in gaining entrance to the right courses. There will be foreign travel after July 16. The opportunities are coming.

Health is much, much improved since 2013. You have your normal vim, vigour and vitality. With more energy at your disposal, more possibilities open to you. Hitherto impossible things are now eminently doable. This spells success in the year ahead.

In 2016 you will start to realise the value of your home and family and appreciate how much certain people in your life really mean to you. With Uranus in your love-zone, there will also be the chance of romance and having fun, although nothing in this area will be predictable. Neptune in your home and family zone suggests that you might feel a powerful impulse to take up some creative pastime that will be carried out in the seclusion of your home. It may even be that in the future you will find this pastime has a commercial outlet and could well form a second string to your financial bow. What you need to guard against is that your private interests or family responsibilities become an excuse to keep you away from other happenings in your community or social life. With you spending more time on your own, you might find that pastimes that don’t involve other people or keep you to yourself such as computer games, spending more time on your computer or social networking where you interact with others on-line but not face-to-face become an escape from reality. You should also guard against a tendency to over-indulge in alcohol.

Pluto – the cosmic detoxer – has been in your money house for some years now and will be there in the year ahead. So there is a need to purify the financial life, eliminate waste and inefficiencies and, most importantly, negative financial attitudes. You’re the life of every party; you have a vast network of friends and acquaintances. People genuinely enjoy your company and the diversity of your intellect. You enjoy travel, the more exotic the better, and can talk with ease about the places you’ve been. You’re a storehouse of information. Pluto’s journey through Capricorn and your solar second house will impact your values and your finances. There will be opportunities to structure your finances in such a way so that you accumulate money. Perhaps you’ll learn to pay yourself first from every paycheck. Or you might decide to invest in land, property, or precious metals like gold and silver. It will be important to you that the way you earn your living is in line with your beliefs. If you’re antiwar, for example, then you won’t be working at the Pentagon! Or for a corporation that profits from war. If you’ve gone green, you won’t be working for an oil company. Pluto’s job is to transform at profound levels, so if there are lessons you need to learn about money, you’ll learn them during this transit. If you’re a profligate spender, Pluto will tighten the financial reins. If you believe that money is good (as opposed to the belief that money is the root of all evil), then Pluto will bring you more money. It’s a black-and-white world with this little powerhouse of a planet, and you’ll quickly learn that what comes around goes around. Work with your deepest beliefs during this transit. Be positive. Nurture what Esther and Jerry Hicks call “rampaging appreciation” so that Pluto brings you even more to appreciate!

Capricorn 2016 Horoscope

2016 Horoscope Capricorn - Major Trends in 2016

What kind of Capricornus are you? The nimble Mountain Goat, clambering relentlessly to the top of craggy peaks (or any convenient heap)? or the mysterious fishy-tailed Sea Goat? In 2016 you get to play both roles. The presence of Jupiter in your opposite sign of oceanic Cancer in the first part of the year should certainly wag your fishiest tail.

You have just come through a very rough two years. Three powerful long-term planets were arrayed against you and there were times when 60 per cent (and sometimes 70 per cent) of the planets were in stressful alignment. Your mettle was tested. You were pushed to the limit. Not everyone came through this, but if you’re reading this you did. Give yourself a pat on the back. This was an achievement. Much of the stress came from instability within the family. There were many dramatic events in the lives of family members. The family unit could have broken up, or come near breaking up; even now it is held together with ‘string and chewing gum’ – very tenuous and delicate bonds. If you are typical of your sign you prefer stability to change; you like to know where you are and where things are leading to. This can be unnerving at times and it will certainly make you feel unsettled and uncertain.The problem is, Uranus in your 4th house can be the cause of sudden disruptions and unforeseen changes in the home and family circle. You will learn to endure these and thankfully, by nature you have a lot of patience. This pattern can continue for some time but you will find your own way to cope with these trends.

With Neptune in your 3rd house you are likely to want to dig deeper into the areas of intellectual study and you might also find yourself taking a serious interest in mystical and supernatural phenomena. Your practical mind makes you an ideal candidate if you’re thinking about volunteering to help societies that do serious research in these areas.

Much stress came, curiously, from your success. In many cases, Capricorn, you were at the pinnacle of achievement, so you stood out like a target. The person on top is always the natural target. You had to deal with a lot of flak from underlings and competitors. Being on top is not all that it’s made out to be. Not being on top has its challenges, but being on top has perhaps greater challenges. Every decision was scrutinized and criticized. In many cases, you were on top, but you aspired to be and this created tensions. You had to be reminded, sometimes dramatically, of your true status.

Love and mariage is the main headline this year. This has been the case ever since Jupiter moved into your 7th house of love in June 26 2013. This not only brings romance, the arrival of a swell new partner or the departure of an old one and possibly marriage, but an expansion of the whole social life, the whole social sphere. And, if you are truly a couple, the chance of forging forwards together in rewarding harmony. Since Jupiter’s underlying principle is liberty, whatever furthers your freedom is the issue. Since Jupiter is in Cancer, it’s an emotional matter, not one to be solved by your strategic mind. You have to become the Sea - Goat and swim. Your ‘other half’ sign of Cancer is a reminder that Capricorn’s tendency to amass material security is often compensation for emotional insecurity – here, your formative years in a Dickensian orphanage/repressed suburban home likely play a part – and it’s that very security that’s central to 2016’s quest. Watery characters – nourishing to Capricorn’s earth - play a persistent role in 2016 – people with their Sun (or other prominent planets) in Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio, and the months of those signs are relationship hotspots, romantically or otherwise. Your timetable in the first half of the year is complex, however.

Your undisputed ruler, Saturn, established in the sign of Scorpio, lines up cannily with home sign planets in January - Carpus Diem! In watery Scorpio, Saturn presents a more amenable proposition than in the last couple of years. At work, you are asked to be team-builder and group member rather than solo overlord, though you will doubtless still be boss or thereabouts. By way of illustration, uber-Goat Ed Milliband (b. 24.12.69) needs a convincing shadow cabinet to back up his personal authority as Labour Party supremo. Saturn’s smiles upon the opening six weeks of 2016 for business initiatives. Its backslide between 2 March to 20 July, is not adverse, just slower; the ringed planet helps you make material, political and professional progress with a minimum of fuss.

Pluto, on its slow-slow transit of your sign, now breaks new ground, inviting birthdays between January 3 and January 6 into its secretive, some say spooky embrace. Pluto is an agent of transformation, sometimes bestowing power and money, along with the corruption that swirls around them. Sometimes the transformation is inward – the ‘soul evolution’ school of astrology is keen on the latter. Either way it adds to your clout. Pluto has been in your own sign since 2008. And so you are in process of reinventing yourself, giving birth to the ‘you’ that you really want to be. This trend is continuing this year and for many more years. You’re the classic type- A personality who finds it challenging to relax. You’re constantly moving, doing, your mind focused on several tasks at once. You’re the one who usually assumes full responsibility for anything and everything at work. You may find it difficult to delegate. You are the leader everyone turns to for answers and guidance. During Pluto’s transit of your sign, just about everything in your life will undergo a profound transformation. It won’t all happen at once. It’s not as if you’ll wake up one morning and find yourself inside a Stephen King novel. But when, in 2024, you look back, you might not recognize the life you’re living now. Possibilities? Your career path could change. You might go to graduate school for an advanced degree in an area about which you feel passionate. You could live abroad, join an ashram, get married or divorced, or start a family. You could inherit money, earn a fortune, or lose a fortune. You could build a home, buy a home, land the job of your dreams. What you experience during this transit will depend on what you’ve been doing with your life up until now. Here are several tools that will prove invaluable during this transit: cultivate a positive attitude; live in the now; be grateful and express that gratitude whenever and wherever you can; reach for what you desire with the trust and faith that you will attain it. Books that will help you do this include anything by Esther and Jerry Hicks, The Power of Now by Eckhard Tolle, You Can Heal Your Life by Louise Hay. Another great navigational tool is to probe into any meaningful coincidence you experience. What’s the message? Meaningful coincidences or synchronicities often hold messages about guidance.

Aquarius 2016 Horoscope

2016 Horoscope Aquarius - Major Trends in 2016

As the symbol for Aquarius is the water carrier, it’s easy to mistake it for a water sign, whereas you belong to the zodiac’s humanitarian air trinity, along with Gemini and Libra. The Aquarius, far from being an emotional fellow, was the Roman engineer who made sure the populus had piped water; civilisation for all!

Depending on your job – many Aquarians have professions concerned with the greater good – you may have to attend to more personal matters in 2016; your love life, your creativity, your finances. Most pressing, especially in the latter half of the year, is your career. Saturn’s arrival at the peak of your ‘scope on 6 October 2012 opened two years when the leaden planet is leaning on you to excel in your chosen profession. Under this transit you get credit and promotion for good work, condemnation for failure, and nothing for inertia.

As an Aquarius you are essentially a non conformist with more than a hint of the rebel in your make-up. You value your independence and there is a flair for unconventional methods. There will be a balance, during 2016 between responsibility and relaxation. You probably have never worked as hard as you are doing now. The main thing to bear in mind is that where your career and public affairs are concerned, with Saturn in your solar tenth house, it would be sensible to stick to tried and trusted methods and procedures. Show respect to those in power, especially when dealing with officialdom as Saturn is a strict disciplinarian and this planet will swiftly deliver retribution for laziness, disrespect and careless mistakes.

So with Saturn planet of discipline at the top of your chart, you must be prepared to put in a lot of effort to bring your plans to a worthwhile conclusion. Saturn always rewards hard work and disciplined effort. Success comes through sheer merit and for no other reason. If you aren’t prepared to work at it, you can’t expect to get results. It is possible that some matters will not work out as expected or commitments you take on in 2016 will be more tying and difficult than anticipated. It is always important not to become discouraged by temporary setbacks when Saturn is in the picture. Likewise, don’t become too down-heartened during those periods when nothing very much seems to be happening. Saturn in Scorpio into a stressful alignment to you by itself is not enough to cause sickness, but it does show a need to watch the energy more. Saturn might slow you down, but he won’t stop you. That may sound like business as usual, but under Saturn’s testing gaze, the basic rules are amplified. It becomes hard to coast, to fudge or to wing it. As this is the most public area of your ‘scope, you are under scrutiny. The establishment becomes more impersonal and fussy. You asked to determine just what you are willing to do to reach your objectives. Yet Saturn’s law is simple – do what you are meant to do and all will be well.

Jupiter in your 6th house, until July 16, is a good sign for your career and your health. You may be developing new skills and you may well find a practical outlet for your talents. The first half of the year will bring some interesting developments that will help enhance your optimism but you will always be ready for this to change which is good. Because the latter half of 2016 will be more challenging.

Pluto has been in your spiritual 12th house since 2008. We have discussed this in previous years but the trends continue in the year ahead. A cosmic detox is taking place in your spiritual life, in your attitudes and practice. A lot of ‘effete material’ is being removed from the spiritual life so that spiritual power can flow freely. Now that we’re in the Age of Aquarius, you should be feeling right at home. After all, you’re the paradigm buster. You set out to find your own truth. Or you don’t like what you see and set out to change it. Or you find a better way of doing something. You’re the true visionary of the zodiac. During Pluto’s transit through Capricorn and your solar twelfth house, your inner world will experience profound transformation. This can include a spiritual quest, an intense exploration of your personal unconscious, traditional therapy, the study of shamanism, Wicca, of some other nontraditional belief system, the study of your own dreams, an exploration of the world of synchronicity or your past lives. It can take virtually any form and, because you are an Aquarian, it won’t be ordinary! If you don’t blog already, then you may start blogging about this journey, could write a book about it, or use your discovery for some other form of creative self-expression. During this long transit, you’ll have to bring your ideas into concrete, tangible forms that others understand—that’s the Capricorn part of the equation. You’ll be urged to build upon the knowledge that you uncover and to communicate it to others through writing, teaching, or some other venue. Your prime directive, first and foremost, is the freedom to explore whatever interests you, and during this transit, you will value that freedom even more deeply. Nothing and no one will deter you from a path you choose to follow.

Pisces 2016 Horoscope

2016 Horoscope Pisces - Major Trends in 2016

There are many important and positive changes that have been happening the past few years. Neptune, your ruling planet, has moved into your sign. This adds much glamour to the image – an unearthly kind of beauty. It gives more confidence and self-esteem as well. Your whole body is being elevated in energy vibration. In 2011 Uranus moved into your money house, bringing great change to the whole financial life – to your investments, the way you earn and your attitudes towards money. So, Neptune is in your sign and will be for a very long time. You’ll be hearing plenty about Neptune from astrologers who reckon this is Pisces’ ruling planet. Its oceanic imagery certainly fits, yet it’s hard to see why you would abandon Jupiter, Pisces’ traditional ruler, as your guiding star, especially as the ‘greater benefic’ as it was known, promises substantial favours in 2016. This mystical and magical planet blends well with the intuitive, sensitive and psychic side of your personality. Its positive influence in your sign will be that it helps you sense the moods of those around you. Neptune’s ‘influence’ is strongest for Pisceans born between Feb 24-29, as it was in 2013, All planets have positive and negative qualities – at best Neptune lends you a magic touch and a patina of glamour, especially if you are in the business of art, music, movies and humanitarian campaigning. At worst Neptune is the planet of the escapist martyr, a role to resist fiercely if you are on the outs wi th a partner, not least at the full Moon of February, a tricky moment.

Also prominent in your skies is the planetoid Chiron, a celestial body associated with healing and courage. Its transits this year chiefly affect birthdays March 3 - March 13, who can expect their tender spots to be exposed and, with a touch of wisdom, soothed. Chiron, powerfully aspected throughout 2016, may also cast you in the role of healer, the opposite of martyr.

Jupiter has been in your 5th house of fun, children and creativity since June 2013 and he will be there until July 16 of this year. So you are in a party kind of year.

Saturn moved into your 9th house late last year and will be there for another two years. BEING THE TOUCHY-FEELY, SENTIMENTAL, ARTY (possibly mystic) Pisces of legend is great to a point, but a little hard-headedness never goes amiss in this cruel and heartless world, and Saturn, resident in your fellow water sign of Scorpio, is on hand to supply it throughout 2016. Saturn’s energy can be harsh, but this is not the school of hard knocks – the one in which you were enrolled four years back. Look upon this year as an opportunity to get your affairs in smooth, productive running order, ready for the more challenging phase that arrives in 2015, which you can worry about later. Here and now officialdom looks keen to co-operate – the world of employers, property, bankers and the like - providing you fulfil your obligations to their impersonal realm. For students, especially at college or postgraduates, this is a difficult period. They need to work much harder on their studies than usual. They are not catching any ‘lucky breaks’ and only sheer merit will get them through. For non-students it shows a testing of the belief systems, a re-organization of the higher mind. Generally this brings ‘crises of faith’.

Pluto in Capricorn, in your friendship zone, suggests a physically and mentally active year ahead when you will be in a sociable mood and ready to get in touch with neglected friends. There’s a reason that your sign is symbolized by a pair of fish swimming in opposite directions. Your talents are many and your conflicts often center around which talent to express.
