2015 Horoscopes Overview
2015 Overview Horoscopes
The year ahead is strong for both work and play, dear Aries, even if there are times when you’re inclined to overdo either of these things! While all Aries are feeling the need to assert their independence and live life on their own terms this year, those Aries born April 2-11, or with an Ascendant from 12 to 21 Aries, are feeling this energy most directly and acutely. Pluto continues to transform your attitudes towards career and reputation, and has the most direct effect on Aries born April 3-6 (13 to 15-1/2 degrees Aries Ascendants as well). You’ll be dealing with anger issues and attitudes towards authority, peaking in March.
The first half of the year encourages you to open up, enjoy yourself, share yourself, and forgive yourself! It’s a strong period for discovering or rediscovering hobbies or channels for entertainment and recreation. For some, this is a time of experimenting with and enjoying casual dating and romantic relationships. From April 9-June13 is a better period for these things. Review new creative plans January 21-February 11, and see them take off from mid-June. You’ll have more courage to express your ideas and share your projects then, as well as a boost from a Jupiter-Uranus connection. The strongest period for romance, creative expression, hobbies, recreation, entertainment, and relationships with children is April 9 to July 25th, peaking around July 1st. There can be a second chance or connection to the past in the first week of August, but perhaps some difficulties making choices as well.
Take time to reassess these areas from July 25-September 6 while Jupiter finishes up its transit of your romance and creativity sector and Venus retrogrades here as well. At this time, you’re transitioning to a stage that emphasizes growth in work, while recreational and romantic activities begin to take a back seat. Although this may not sound exciting now, the good news is that you’re truly enjoying work and service, finding more joy and happiness in doing what you love, in the second half of 2015. As such, this is a happy, willing shift of focus, not a dutiful one. From mid-August forward is a strong time for work matters, although also a busy period, and sometimes overwhelmingly so, for supporting and helping out others or doing a lot of detail work. From October, however, there is more recognition, purpose, determination, and strength in what you’re doing, as well as increased clout in your career. Many of you could be specializing and doing especially well with this narrower focus. You’re in high demand for your work and talents this Fall and Winter!
This can also be a strong period for new health regimes, methods, and plans. This can be a time for learning about new ways to improve your health and daily life. At the very least, there can be more optimism here and an improved attitude towards health and wellness. Rediscovering the joys of work and service can also help to improve health. You may be an authority on a topic and your work/business can involve teaching and sharing your knowledge, which requires more dedication to learning. There may be a wider audience for your products or services.
On the more challenging side in 2015, there could be issues to deal with that limit independence and freedom, legal matters, matters of confinement or hiatus, or the need to tend to the care of others. From mid-June to mid-September, many of you will be returning to financial or intimate challenges that were left undone in 2014 for resolution.
Continuing until October-November, you are reassessing your relationship needs, and particularly concerning committed partnerships – an area of your life that has been strained in recent years. You’re learning what it is you need in this area of life in order to be happy. This can range from making a commitment to deciding that it’s not for you, but whatever the choice, it’s a more definite one. The Lunar Eclipses this year, first in April and then in September, will help push the matter. In November and December, you begin a cycle in which work, health, and wellness are both challenging and joyous. You’re getting a cosmic push to find your joy through improving your attitude towards work and daily routines. Lifestyle changes can be big ones with long-term benefits.
There can be the beginnings of a nice period of focus on education, whether this is formal or you’re going the self-taught or online route. You can be putting more effort and responsibility into learning. From now and until 2017, it’s important for you to learn a lot about your trade as that is when your professional peak occurs. February 20-March 31 is powerful for making money, and is probably the best period of the year in this regard. Out of the box ideas for making money can come from April 18-June 1st. While this is a great time for generating ideas, be sure you don’t go overboard with spending. In the summer, tend to debts owed and do this as responsibly as possible. You can no longer turn a blind eye to problems in this area. Personal appeal is strong during the same money window mentioned above, but mainly from February 21-March 16, as well as June 28-July 10.
In 2015, you continue to seek comfort, but also growth and improvement, in your domestic world, dear Taurus. It’s one of your priorities, and the “work” you do with family and in the home can benefit you for years to come. While career matters are not in strong focus at this time, you are planting seeds now that are important for future growth in work and business. In fact, it’s a powerful time for beginning long-term projects. A strong time for updating your home and moving your family relationships forward in happy ways occurs from April to June. If there are hatchets to bury in your closest relationships, this is the time to do so. Make a permanent mark. It’s also a strong time for dealing with your insecurities or negative self-image. Get comfortable with yourself – the cosmos are fully supporting this endeavor! You’ll benefit greatly and indefinitely, but especially in the second half of the year, when energy is ripe for expressing and sharing yourself in powerful ways. There may be a new hobby or creative activity that you take on, and for some Tauruses, you’ll be bringing an old interest or pleasure back to life. If you’ve always wanted to pursue a specific craft, art, or creative interest, now is the time to do so. You’ll also have over eight months in 2016 to get on this.
Your romantic life can blossom in the second half of 2015 as well (from August 2015 until September 2016). People are very interested in you romantically speaking, and opportunities can abound. Even so, another influence this year, Saturn in your solar eighth house, can have you a little reticent about getting in too deep. This could be due to emotions or life circumstances. Either way, intimacy is an area that you’re taking more seriously this year. There can be major opportunities on creative and romantic fronts beginning in mid-October which will allow you to make powerful, possibly even obsessive, connections. Some of you could be reaching a broad audience, publishing your creative works, for example. At this time, creativity finds a successful channel or outlet, and you are pouring more of your heart and soul into what you create and share. Some Taureans will connect romantically with someone whose culture differs greatly from theirs or will become involved in a long-distance romance.
Seriousness in partnerships continues this year, but is also wrapping up. This is a time for coming to terms with recent relationship decisions and realizations. Those of you who have made or strengthened a commitment will now focus on the merging process, which isn’t always easy. Others who may have broken long-term commitments now face the challenges of reorganizing their lives in an “un-coupled” state – also difficult, but totally doable. Continuing this year, there are great benefits to living a more organized, scheduled life. Do your best to get solid health and fitness programs in place. Connect with the joy of being of service and doing your share. April’s Lunar Eclipse will help give you the boost you need. In the last two months of the year, you begin a cycle, lasting throughout 2016 and into 2017, that encourages all things creative, romantic, and self-expressive. At times this year, there can be a sense that you’re missing something, or constantly making adjustments. Dealing with guilt and worries can take its toll. This is also a time for managing your debts and shared finances. For some, there can be decreased intimacy or a more serious approach to your intimate world. There can even be some disdain for the confines of a merged, intense relationship. Money matters with a partner or ex-partner can be challenging, but also need some serious sorting in order for you to get back on track.
While Venus is retrograde from July 25-September 6, take your time when it comes to decisions revolving around home and family. You could experience slow-downs at this time. Motivation can drop temporarily. Watch for excess with money, gambling, or other forms of over-the-top behavior from mid-April through to the end of May, but do take note of new, off the wall ideas for making money, as these may be worth something. Good prospects for business may be found in real estate, family-oriented business, publishing, and the food or travel industry. Instability is lifting. March and September bring strong energy for new beginnings when it comes to your social and romantic life. Be especially attentive to cues to take better care of your health and daily routines in April. By September, Saturn’s opposition to your sign lifts, and this takes off some of the direct pressure that’s been on you to perform and measure up. 2015 is first very much about getting comfortable in your own skin, after which it’s about sharing yourself with others with more confidence and self-assurance.
The year ahead is strong for learning, education, and communication, dear Gemini, as well as nesting, improving your home life, and saving money. Until August, schooling, teaching, learning, and making connections are favored as you expand your contacts, mind, and friendships. Joining groups, networking, and communicating your ideas are in strong focus and beneficial. For some, an important partnership or friendship can result from your involvement with school, teams, group work, and causes. If so, you may rather quickly bring this relationship to a committed level. While networking and casual contact can fuel your sense of well-being, great rewards can come through developing your creative skills, as well as your ability to enrich one-on-one relationships. You are becoming a lot more serious about partnering in 2015, and this trend is just beginning. Lacks and cracks in an existing partnership can be glaring now, and the need to do something about them presents itself. Others may be considering making a relationship more official, or making a commitment.
This is a time for really sorting out your feelings, desires, and passions. You can feel a great hunger to express yourself through creative channels. Some of you may be looking to fill their lives through children, and others through romantic expression. Challenges are part and parcel, but rewards are great. Friendships and romance bring surprises and turnarounds in April. Towards the end of the year, family life begs your attention. In fact, opportunities to improve home life open up, whether this is through larger or more suitable accommodations, strengthening relationships with family, or creating more joy on the domestic front. There can be the need to deal with work or health challenges in the summer. This is a time for structuring your daily life to better accommodate recent changes, as well as to improve your well-being and productivity. It’s a great time to nail down plans and programs that keep you adequately busy and organized. By September, Saturn’s work in your sector of work and health will be done, and this eases the pressure on these areas. Ideally, you’ve come out of this cycle with a stronger sense of what you have to offer, and as a result, more joy in the work you do, services you provide, and the fulfillment of your daily routines and tasks.
The second half of the year is solid for laying down foundations, and this includes long-term, career or life-plan ones. What you’re beginning now may very well last, so pay close attention to your basic instincts, which will serve you especially well. This is because, without necessarily even knowing it, you are more in touch with what’s in your heart at this time. Career matters can confound you at times again this year, as you’re testing your boundaries and limits, looking for something fulfilling and ideally suited, and learning about what’s most important to you. The last week of March brings powerful energy for starting fresh in a current or new career/life path. Even so, there is less emphasis overall in 2015 on the role you play to the outside world, and more interest in your personal life. There can be stress on a relationship as the result of your struggle with finding a life path or defining your career when Saturn squares Neptune, from November forward (until September 2016). Educational pursuits can thrive, particularly from mid-March to June.
From October forward, long-term financial planning and strengthening your financial picture through some form of pooling resources are favored. There can be more power and resources available to you to establish yourself, especially through a home or property, but also for long-term business endeavors.Mercury retrograde periods this year occur from January 21-February 11, May 18-June 11, and September 17-October 9. These are important times for reflection, pulling yourself back a little from the pursuit of your goals so that you can reassess where you’re headed, and looking at your life in new ways. The period from May 18-June 11 occurs in your sign, and this can be a time to work on what you’re projecting to others. From June 6-24, your actions can be especially courageous and sometimes even over the top. It’s a time for going after what you want and feeling more courage, but do watch for excessiveness that doesn’t serve you well in the long run.
The year ahead brings opportunities to build up your resources, use your natural talents in creative ways, expand your interests, learn new things, and put more effort into health and fitness routines, dear Cancer. Jupiter’s travels through your money and values sector until August is designed to allow you to get comfortable. Particularly from April 10th to June 30th, this is a time for building up your resources. There can be a nice feeling of abundance or improved fortunes now. Some of you are making more money, and others are settling in and finding ways to make life easier. You might acquire a new item/valuable that you’ve always wanted. It’s a strong time for asking for a raise and building up stock. It’s also an excellent period for drawing upon and honing your natural talents. Although it feels like a lovely time to spend, and in fact it is, make the most of this period by putting some money away for rainy days.
Home and family life continue to improve, although you may need to work to make this happen by finding a better balance between the demands of the outside world, particularly career, and the needs of your personal life. There are great rewards for doing so. An eclipse in April will give you the cosmic push necessary to turn your attention more strongly to any neglected areas in your domestic life, and can bring some surprises and turnarounds in the process. Work and partnership are connected this year and next, and some of you may, for example, meet a partner through work/services, or work with a partner. Towards the end of the summer, you’ll begin to feel a stronger desire to connect, mingle, learn, and communicate. Opportunities begin to open up that allow you to do more of these things, to get around (transportation improves, possibly with a new vehicle for some), and to take on new interests. It can be a very busy time, mostly happily so, and this extends until September 2016.
The second half of the year can be loaded with daily activities, projects, and activities. It’s a good time for marketing, sending out resumes, going on interviews, writing, studying, and learning. You’ll only need to watch out for saying too much too soon, and filling up your schedule to the point of overload. In fact, Jupiter is encouraging you to take on more, and Saturn wants you to simplify your daily life. While this conflict is more likely to play out in 2016, get a jumpstart on this now by striving for a better balance. Your desire to expand your contacts and your mind is strong, but you also need to organize, structure, and simplify your daily routines in order to stay healthy and adjusted. More is not always better – keep this in mind.
You’ve been attracting intense relationships into your experience in recent years, and this trend continues. At times, issues of control or power, as well as fear and trust, are in full play when it comes to partnering. This trend can be most problematic in February-March, when conflicts over values, money, and career can be at play, and especially the end of June to mid-August. In fact, some of you could be ending a significant relationship in the summer, or a relationship could be tested then. From October forward, however, excellent energy is with you for significant relationships. News or information give you a new perspective, and communication can lead to bonding. Some could meet someone special through work or studies/projects, and there may be growth in commitment or devotion in an existing partnership. Your views toward love and commitment can transform. From November forward, there can be concerns about education or necessary skills in order to succeed in your work. Some of you could be faced with a choice to travel or to take a new job, for example, or the desire to escape and experience more from life conflicts with your daily responsibilities. Personal appeal is especially strong from May 8-June 5, when coveted people and things seem to come to you, and when your decisions about love and money might even make some waves. You have a lot more courage this summer with Mars blazing through your sign (June 24-August 8). This is a time for pursuing your desires, not for waiting for things to come to you. Even so, from the last week of June to mid-July, you could be especially brave and acting out of character. You could make very impulsive decisions during this period – watch for over the top behavior, particularly in your career or with people in authority.
You’re likely to enjoy much success on a personal level in 2015, dear Leo, with Jupiter continuing to transit your sign until mid-August. You’ll feel the most power of this influence from April 8th forward. You’re reaching a broader audience and many of you are enjoying chances to travel or to learn exciting new things. You’re exposed to ideas and perspectives that inspire you, and others are receiving you warmly. Continuing this year, you crave intellectual stimulation. Others are seeing your value and recognizing your creative, unique qualities. There is a new focus this year on creative talents, hobbies, pastimes, and recreational pursuits. How you spend your leisure time is in question, and many of you will be attempting to make better, or more practical, use of your energy and time, as well as your talents and gifts. There can be very rewarding work and effort going into hobbies and creative pursuits. You may have less time to “play”, or what you prefer to do with your leisure time can change considerably as you incorporate more structure and discipline into your life. Some of you will be working determinedly on a hobby or honing creative skills now. This trend continues into 2017, but you’ll be getting a strong hint of it in 2015. For some, a romantic relationship can become more serious, and for others, there is less desire or perceived time for dating and attention to casual relationships.
In the summer, you’ll be doing some clean-up work regarding home, family, and personal matters that have been challenging in the past few years. This is due to Saturn’s return to your solar fourth house, and for those born late in the sign, to a square position with your Sun. This is a time for paying special attention to getting your home life organized, secure, structured, and in better running order. Challenges within the family may surface (or resurface) for attention. However, by September, Saturn moves into favorable position with your Sun after spending almost three years in conflict with your sign, and you’ll be embracing responsibilities rather than feeling weighed down and overwhelmed by them. This is also a good move for improved health, a fact that is reinforced by a Jupiter-Pluto contact with you from October forward. Many of you will be enjoying a stronger feeling of well-being and vitality in the second half of 2015. Again this year, extra attention to communication and communication skills can have big payoffs, until October-November. This is a time for skills development, pursuing a specific line of study, gathering facts to back up beliefs, and making meaningful contact with others. Health and daily routines continue to transform this year as you discover new methods to replace ones that have become inadequate. Particularly from October forward, you’ll be experiencing more rewards for the improvements you make. There is a stronger feeling of being grounded now, and opportunities to heal the body and mind open up. You might turn around a difficult financial situation at this time. Natural talents may be used more fully in the work you do.
Venus retrogrades mostly in your sign from July 25-September 6. With Jupiter leaving your sign in mid-August, this is a good time for absorbing the “lessons” that you’ve learned about how you present yourself to others, your image and manner, as well as your general outlook and attitude going into any new situation or endeavor. August may not be the easiest of months for you, at least on the surface of things. From September forward is a period of abundance and comfort. This is a time for enjoying the rewards of your recent good fortune. Finances can improve considerably for some of you, or there can be an increased sense of being fulfilled and content. Some of you could acquire a major new material good that you’ve wanted for some time, or you may be using savings and resources towards a new business pursuit. Opportunities can open up to expand your business or personal possessions. Some of you could publish a major work around the time of a Lunar Eclipse on September 27th. While Jupiter is helping you to earn more, Neptune continues to confuse money dealings with others. Again this year, it’s important to watch your credit rating and your lending and borrowing habits.
2015 is strong for improvements to your health and well-being as well as your communication skills. Opportunities to expand your mind and enjoy new experiences are abundant, but as the year progresses, you’re inclined to settle in and enjoy a feeling of being grounded and more disciplined.
2015 continues to emphasize behind-the-scenes work and service, as well as new insights into your deeper nature, dear Virgo. However, by September, you’re ready to share yourself with others, and they receive you very warmly. In fact, there can be a blast of popularity in the last four months of the year and extending into 2016. The year ahead is about healing and getting into better touch with your innermost needs and wants, after which your confidence builds to the point that you can put your self-realizations into action. People begin to really “see” you, enjoy your presence, and want more! Being around you makes others feel good.
An interesting combination is with you in 2015: Jupiter, ruler of your home, family, and personal life, moves into your sign from August 11th forward, stimulating your confidence, a love of freedom, and your desire to really experience life in new ways. Much of the year, responsible and restrictive Saturn transits Jupiter’s sign, Sagittarius, and the same sector that Jupiter rules. So, while you’re busy expanding, learning, connecting, and engaging, you’re also doing important work on your self-image, foundations, and domestic life that involves pruning, simplifying, and structuring. This is not the easiest of Saturn transits, but it may very well tame the more excessive, over-the-top, and wasteful tendencies of Jupiter’s transit in your sign. It may be one of the tamer Jupiter transits to your sign in your life time (there is a year-long Jupiter transit to your sign every 12 years or so), but perhaps a more balanced one as well. There can be a lot of focus on serving the family again this year, but there will be distinct periods in 2015 when the family also serve you, give back, and help you out. There can be changes with parents, children, support, and home life that are significant, but these involve both challenges and rewards, setbacks and advances. In the first half of the year, find the time for rest, reflection, and healing as much as is healthy for you. Connect with your spiritual needs and take advantage of any opportunity to learn about what attitudes you’ve been wearing that have prevented you from pursuing your own happiness and life experience. We often feel guilty without knowing fully why, and Virgos tend to have this problem more than most. This is a time for discovering irrational feelings of guilt and working on ridding yourself of them. This is a time for giving back in areas that you’ve felt indebted or unbalanced, and for spiritual self-renewal. Ideally, you’ll discover what has been holding you back from enjoying life, and then take this lesson forward as you pursue your dreams.
Jupiter moving into your sign mid-August certainly nudges you forward, but retrograde Venus from July 25-Septemer 6 can point to more inner work. The Solar Eclipse mid-September in your own sign will give you a nice push. You’ll have a sense that you are able to start fresh. In October and November, you’re raring to go with Venus and Mars in your sign, highlighting your uniquely appealing traits and stimulating your drive and energy levels. You also benefit from a powerful transit beginning in October that stimulates your desire to express yourself in new, transformed ways. You will be finding yourself, and your voice, through creative projects and communication channels. While this period is more about you and your personality, romantic expression reaches new heights as well. Children may be thriving as previous obstacles are overcome. From September forward, pressures on learning, schooling, and producing are lessened considerably. This is a time when you are seeing opportunities where you previously saw obstacles. You are less guarded about what you say and do, and thus feel freer to express yourself.
Your love life continues to be on the tumultuous side, and while the last few months of the year are strong for you personally, from November forward, both easy and challenging energy is with you for love relationships and business partnerships, if applicable. There can be problems stemming from family that weigh heavily on love matters. Watch that a relationship doesn’t become so draining and demanding that other areas of life suffer. Draw some boundaries and look out for yourself. Working towards more financial independence continues to be important this year, and is easier than it was for most of 2014. Mercury retrograde periods, generally three per year, are times for catching your breath, looking at your life and projects a little more critically, and making important edits. In 2015, these occur from January 21-February 11, May 18-June 11, and September 17-October 9. Other important dates to watch for include May 3-19 and June 6-23 when actions and communications that are too impulsive or over-the-top can negatively impact your reputation or career. These need not be difficult, and in fact some of your impulses may be genius on some level if you’ve lacked courage to make important changes, but it’s important to think twice at these times. Check with what’s in your heart before taking action and speaking out. Take full advantage of a powerful lineup of planets in your sign that boost personal appeal in mid-October to early November.
Jupiter continues to bring benefits through your friendships, fills you with ideas and hope regarding the future, and rewards your efforts to reach out to others in 2015, dear Libra. You’ll feel this most from April through June, but to some degree as well from the beginning of the year up until August 11th. Team or group work and networking bring opportunities and fill you with much happiness and hope. You’ll also be actively reshaping your image, presenting a more authentic and confident “you” to the world, and learning the benefits of independence, healthy self-assertion, and self-assurance. This “lesson” is with you until October-November, when you begin to see the benefits of enjoying moments of stillness and solitude – getting more comfortable with alone time, as well as spiritual renewal. However, the groundwork is laid for these things starting mid-August, when Jupiter moves into your spiritual twelfth house. This new trend is, in many ways, a quiet, preparatory stage. However, it has its distinct benefits. Faith in your intuition builds as you search within and find answers. Compassion also increases, and you can find great satisfaction in helping and supporting others. You might work on ridding yourself of unhealthy guilt and a state of feeling in debt to others spiritually. While this is a somewhat private period, and happily so, it’s also a time when centering yourself and coming to peace with yourself improves your communications and personal presentation. There can be work done behind the scenes now, which you may only be ready to release a year from now.
March and April can be an important period for starting a new job or health program. April brings a Lunar Eclipse in your sign, making it a good time to release or publish a project, make a career change, take on a new role, come out with a new look or image, or otherwise express yourself in new and exciting ways – you’ll pull it all off. In the summer, you’re likely to be dealing with financial problems that you may have left undone, unfinished, or interrupted. August can involve some issues to sort out with friends. From September forward, pressures on finances ease considerably. Ideally, you’re in a much better, more mature place on this level. You know what you’re capable of bringing in, and you have money matters sorted out and organized going forward. Helping you along is a wonderful aspect between your finance ruler, Pluto, and lucky Jupiter from October forward (until June 2016). This is a time for financial renewal, rebuilding, strategy, and improvement. It’s also a powerful time for healing and strengthening family ties. You are becoming very comfortable with yourself on the inside, which of course will benefit you across the board. You do need to watch that you don’t overdo service to others if it’s interfering with self-care, and for escapist tendencies. Don’t hide yourself away from responsibilities, as tempting as it may be.
However, from September 17-October 9, take the time to back up and reassess recent projects, ideas, decisions, and endeavors rather than push forward blindly. It’s an important time for making adjustments and important edits. While the last week of June through to early August stimulates a surge of ambition and energy for achieving your career goals, watch for over the top or impulsive actions and decisions from June 24-July 16. If courage is what you need to make important changes, then you’ll find it then, but be sure that you know what you’re doing. New energy is with you for disciplining yourself mentally in 2015 – a trend that will continue until 2017. For much of this year, Saturn is in positive relationship to your sign, and this fact alone helps to ease pressure on your physical body and stimulates a more positive attitude towards taking on responsibilities. However, as you adjust to this energy, you may feel some pressure mentally – to get organized, manage your daily affairs in a more orderly manner, and pay closer attention to time management. In time, you’ll be working on honing and sharpening your communication skills, and you may be learning to communicate with more authority, or learning a particular skill or topic more deeply. With Jupiter in your privacy zone and stern Saturn in your communications sector, there will be times from mid-September forward when others find you hard to reach. Personal magnetism and sex appeal receive a huge boost from mid-November to December 4th, although most of October is also quite good for attracting positive attention.
The year ahead is strong for career, reputation, and networking, dear Scorpio. Saturn is finishing up its transit of your sign, returning to Scorpio this summer, and then moving on, not to return until 2041. This releases a lot of the direct pressure you’ve been feeling to mature, take on more responsibility, and perform. You’ll feel this increased freedom most until June and after September. Until August, you’re in the limelight in some way. People are noticing your talents and efforts. They’re taking interest in what you’ve learned and what you can do. This can be a period of growth in your career and reputation, and while responsibilities can also increase, you’re more than willing to take them on. At the same time, you’re beginning to feel a strong need to improve and structure your finances and your natural talents. You may be feeling a pinch or a feeling of lack in these areas, and you’re likely to put more effort into making adjustments and improvements. In many ways, this is a year for building, developing, and shaping your life in concrete, material ways. Your goal is to feel more rooted and stable. Some of you have totally restructured your lives in the past year or two, and now you’re working on rebuilding it – starting from scratch in some manner.
Especially from March to June, practical matters tend to fare well. Some of you are enjoying financial improvements that come from paying more attention to downsizing, paperwork, and benefits that you’ve missed in the past. You’re being “seen” for your hard work and responsibility. Improved health and daily routines contribute greatly to your success now, and these areas improve greatly after mid-March. You continue to project an image of self-value, and others more readily put their faith in you as a result. Better relationships with health care providers and co-workers can figure strongly now. Family relationships open up with more contact, support, and attention. During the summer months, you’ll be wise to consider the work you’ve done on your personality, image, and identity since October 2012 when Saturn first entered your sign. This is about making final adjustments and absorbing what you’ve learned. People born late in the sign of Scorpio will be feeling Saturn’s effects more acutely, and the best strategy for handling this influence is to focus on what you’re doing to make your future more secure rather than on the problems and pressures of the moment. At the end of this, ideally, you’re feeling wiser, more mature, and self-assured. You’ve learned that you can go it alone and succeed. You’re more self-reliant than you have been for some time. Venus’ retrograde from July 25-September 6 is a period of slowing down and reassessing recent advances in your career as well as partnership matters. Take in, absorb, and learn about your needs.
Now that you’ve put yourself out there, it’s time to reap the rewards and build the momentum. From August forward, and even more so from October and into 2016, you’ll be building a following for your ideas and your work. Networking is powerful at this time. Put the word out, mingle, connect, and exchange ideas for maximum success and happiness. Now that the pressure’s off your performance, you’ll feel freer to experiment. Many of you will be expanding your social life. You’re experiencing powerful belief in the future, what you have to offer others and your community, and your own dreams and hopes. Your already considerable powers of persuasion sharpen. People look to you for leadership and/or advice, although this is the case in some form throughout 2015. Finances improve from increased responsibility and attention in the first half of the year. However, there can be some strain late in 2015, particularly if you are looking for funding for a creative project. Some of you could be feeling a pinch as your desire for pleasures and entertainment increases. Aim to simplify. Look for overlapping or unnecessary expenses and other redundancies, and aim to rid yourself of material clutter. Writing, teaching, and communicating your ideas could figure strongly in your business and may contribute more to your personal income than previously. You’ll continue to work on letting go of baggage, both material and spiritual, and reaping the rewards of this. Mental and physical health continue to be in strong focus in 2015. However, a new trend is emerging that points you in the direction of developing friendships, sharing your expertise with others, and giving back to your community. The Solar Eclipse in March can bring a new beginning in your romantic life, with children, or a new creative direction for some. September’s Solar Eclipse serves to jumpstart a new direction on a social level.
Increased personal responsibilities are likely this year, dear Sagittarius, but also joy in meeting goals and others’ discovery of your talents. 2015 is a strong year for practical focus and determination, and getting finances sorted and on track. There’s also good energy for your romantic and social life, even if it has its ups and downs.
Saturn moved into your sign late in 2014, and will do so more permanently from mid-September forward (until 2017). This move affects all Sagittarians energetically on some level, but more directly those born November 22-December 3 and those with a Sagittarius Ascendant of 0 to 11 degrees. This is a time for really sorting out your life and getting it into order. You’ll need to deal with problem areas where you may have slacked. There may be times when you feel others don’t truly “see” your personal struggles and leave you to your own resources. Neglected or unfinished areas need attention now, and while it’s not especially glamorous, tending to these matters will keep you honest and contribute to long-term success. In fact, the best way to mentally deal with some of the frustrations of this position is to focus on setting things right and reminding yourself that the work you do now will benefit you for years to come. This is not the time to be short-sighted. Saturn can be like having a personal trainer, perhaps uninvited, but reminding you to shape up. While it’s mostly about getting your affairs into order, this can also be a time to firm up physically. Excesses become glaring. Moderation is the lesson now. Jupiter helps to lighten your load, mostly in the form of a positive attitude, with its transit of your sector of spirit until mid-August. Take advantage of any opportunity to learn, grow, and improve during this fortunate transit. Look for the silver lining, absorb your lessons, and move forward. There can be fortunate connections to others, either romantic or creative, or both. Some of you could get published. Students may do especially well. You may be connecting with good, helpful mentors and teachers or strong programs. April to June is an especially strong period for these things.
While Saturn in your sign generally means operating under a low profile, Jupiter’s movement into your career and reputation zone in mid-August will bring you recognition. Especially from October forward, you’re carrying yourself with more dignity, maturity, and competence, attracting respect and positive attention. You take more pride in your performance. Advancement in achieving an important goal can occur now. There can be positive relationships with parents and bosses. People tend to encourage you to reach your highest potential. Finances may be overhauled. A stronger sense of timing improves both money and business affairs. March’s Solar Eclipse may stimulate a new direction with family, housing, and accommodations. However, this is the first in a set of eclipses that bring new energy to your life direction and family/home life, extending until February 2017. A move or change in career goals may be in the works, and this is the first push towards making changes. There may be draining family or home life events and shifts from November forward to deal with. Uncertainty here can force you to mature quickly, possibly as you take on more personal responsibilities.
You’re encouraged to share more of yourself with others and to join with friends and teams this year, even if you are feeling a little solitary from time to time. There are rewards and benefits for keeping in touch. In fact, friendships and networking efforts can be very supportive, offering a breather from some of the more serious focus and responsibilities. In many ways, you are in the position to lead in 2015, and there can be some loneliness as the result of this. You might seek out people who are not as personally involved – acquaintances, groups, casual friends – for encouragement and pleasant diversion. Your passions are especially stimulated February 20th to mid-March, when your personal magnetism is powerful and you’re motivated to pursue your desires. April’s Lunar Eclipse can bring surprises in the world of romance or social life, an announcement, or epiphany related to love and friendship. A partner may be acting out or acting out of character April-June. Special attention to a partnership is required now. From September forward, pay special attention to long-term goals. Draw upon the power of September’s eclipse to start fresh on this level, and to give it your all. Nurture your ambition, enjoy a feeling of accomplishment, and don’t neglect your home life in the process. This year brings new responsibilities and a strong need for more structure in your life, but also all the tools necessary to feel on top of it all.
In 2015, you’re likely to do a lot of probing into your inner world, dear Capricorn, with great rewards. There can be much interest and motivation to explore life more deeply and richly, and a strong desire to merge and make deep connections with others. Even so, there’s also some room for a bit of adventure and excitement this year. Some of you could be deeply involved in research, writing, and study this year, and the process is enriching. You’re not very content with living life on the surface. While career is important in 2015, it’s not a major headline in your life, as you’re likely to find more reward in inner exploration and discovery. An intimate relationship may take up a lot of your attention, and you’ll find that it’s on your mind much of the time. Particularly from April to June, there can be financial improvement and opportunity, although it would be wise to watch how much you take on with regards to debt, as support tends to be more available to you. There can be creative merging this year, and this may relate to a business partnership. Some will benefit through a partner’s increased bottom line or a merging of resources.
The last week of January through to the end of February is strong for starting fresh with money management. This is an important period for getting yourself back on track with your finances. In March, you could be motivated to ditch a current line of interest or study, or a project, and start fresh on a new one. Alternatively, you might choose to do an overhaul and symbolically start fresh. For some of you, this can be a writing project that is released or reaches an important turning point later this year. After March, there is less direct pressure on and from family. In fact, home life feels lighter and easier. Living arrangements may be unusual and non-traditional now, but highly successful. April through early May is one of the strongest periods of the year for romance and fun/entertainment. There can also be very positive feedback for a creative project at this time. For some, children are in strong focus and bringing a lot of joy. This summer, you may be clearing up some outstanding problems with friends or group connections. A friendship may very well end at this time, but strong connections will endure. July is an animated month for partnerships. Love is rocky but exciting. A partner may be acting out in unusual ways or vying for attention. Venus’ retrograde from July 25-September 6 is an important period for reviewing recent developments and attachments. Finances can benefit from a review process as well. For some, an old lover could resurface, stirring up powerful feelings during this period.
You’ll begin to feel impulses to seek out more life experiences, adventure, and knowledge – things that truly feed you body, mind, and spirit – from mid-August forward, but it’s around the Solar Eclipse mid-September that you may decide to really get going on this. There will be times when self-restrictions hold you back during this cycle that stays with you until September 2016, and periods when instability on the home front tie you down, but all in all, this is an influence that builds your confidence and gives you the right attitude to take life’s problems in stride. New knowledge and connections can open you up to different ways of looking at your life and the world that truly benefit you. You can feel that you’re growing, and you’re likely to thoroughly enjoy sharing your ideas with others and possibly teaching as well. Some of you will publish your work or ideas, reaching a larger audience. You may be writing about your personal past, restrictions, and trials, in ways that help others. There can be resolution to long-standing problems, possibly a positive legal outcome, discoveries of personal strengths and talents, or a new and exciting project. The last week of October can bring exhilarating opportunities for love, travel, and learning. The second half of the year is stronger, in general, for friendships and networking. Pressures you’ve been feeling in your social life tend to dissipate and inhibitions are released, allowing you to enjoy yourself more. Even so, there can be a retiring or withdrawn and private element to your personality now with your ruler, Saturn, spending much of the year in your solar twelfth house. There can be a lot of work done behind the scenes and less daily contact with others. Some of you could be connecting with studies and interests of a more spiritual nature in 2015 and beyond. This is all very important work, but be sure to reassure important people in your life that you’re still very much a part of their lives.
2015 is likely to be significant, dear Aquarius, with less direct pressure on you to perform, easier schedules, and wonderful support from others. In an unusual turn of events, there are two New Moons in your sign this year – one in the very first degree of Aquarius on January 20th, and another in the final degree of Aquarius on February 18th. This brings powerful energy for both beginnings and endings that launch you on a new and improved path. Mercury retrogrades in your sign for much of this time, from January 21-February 11, and this can be an important time to work on your image – what you’re projecting to others. You may look back to a time when you were received especially well, and draw lessons from that in order to move forward in the best possible way. With Jupiter in relationship sectors this year, and Saturn now bringing heavier energy to a sector of your solar chart that is very much connected to your sign, in some ways, you may seem a little less like yourself in 2015. You’ll still have chances to show your naturally independent self, but there is certainly a different energy with you this year with more emphasis on deeper, more meaningful relationships with others and some pulling back from team or group settings.
Benefits come from partnering up this year. One-on-one relationships tend to be mutually beneficial in 2015. From April to June especially, there could be a partnership opportunity through a group or team effort, or through a friend. You are very much valued for your mind, unique perspective, and ability to pick up on information that others overlook. There can be continued busy-ness and activity with communications – learning, writing, public speaking, and new interests. You seek out, and find, stimulating educational experiences. February and March are the strongest months of the year for finances. Powerful and creative new ideas and opportunities can arise for you now. April’s eclipse may bring surprise learning or travel opportunities, or could stimulate a restless need for more meaning, experience, and excitement in your life. Romantic energy seems strongest in June, particularly after the New Moon mid-month, but something out of the ordinary on this front could begin in the last weeks of April. The summer can bring the return of a previous condition in terms of larger life plans and goals or career, and it’s time to put this problem or situation to rest. Some of you will be starting a brand new career or job, and dealing with all of the responsibilities that go hand in hand with this. If you need the courage and will to start or improve a health and fitness program or to look for a new job, you’ll discover it in the last week of June until mid-July. There can be the need to look backwards before moving forward during Venus’ retrograde from July 25-September 6, particularly when it comes to a partnership. The August 14th New Moon provides you with powerful motivation to do so. For some, a past relationship can figure strongly now.
A new trend emerging this year revolves around finances. While support from others, including banks, is strong, there can also be a drive for more financial independence. Even so, combining your own resources and talents with a partner may improve your financial outlook. A new influence that begins in August and runs until September 2016 brings joy to your intimate world. This cycle may only seem to rev up its engines late September and October. You’re more inclined to look within and enjoy the process, and also to share yourself with someone special. Intimacy with yourself and/or with someone else can deepen. Your private world can be compelling. Support from others seems more readily available than usual. The last few months of 2015, and the first eight months of 2016, are also strong for career. The pressure you’ve been feeling to succeed and perform has lifted, and this frees you up to more readily enjoy taking on challenges and responsibilities. Aquarians do perform best when nobody’s trying to force them to do so, and this is the kind of energy you’ll be experiencing. Working more on your own terms is a theme now, and it can improve your overall state of mind. There is also less emphasis on the team and more on partnership. You could experience some disheartening moments with friends or colleagues, however. Friendships, team work, or causes can drain you at times if you are giving too much while ignoring your own needs. Ultimately, though, you’re moving towards discovering lasting, true friendships and alliances, as well as causes that truly mean something to you.
The year ahead holds opportunities to do the work you love and to connect with someone special, dear Pisces. It also brings brand new responsibilities. You’re continuing a trend in which work, service, and support are strong themes. You are, for the most part, enjoying your routines, breathing new life into your work, and paying more attention to nutrition and/or fitness. You’re often found in a supportive role this year, and this is mostly a happy place for you to be. At times, you can feel overloaded, but there can also be distinct periods of pure enjoyment of the process of your work, tasks, and duties.
Saturn has just recently moved into Sagittarius, which brings this planet of discipline in difficult aspect to your sign. Saturn will move back into Scorpio and your adventure/spirit sector for the summer months, but then return to Sagittarius in September, where it will stay until December 2017. This transit brings your responsibilities to the outside world to light, and at times, to the test. It’s a pivotal period for you, when you reach a peak of sorts, particularly when it comes to the structures you’ve built and your career or reputation. This can be a time of harvest on career fronts, achievement, recognition, and new responsibilities. Others are taking you more seriously, which can be rewarding, but at times stressful. It can also be a time when poor past decisions come to light. Pisces born February 19-March 1st and those with Pisces Ascendants from 0-10 degrees will feel this energy most directly in 2015; for the rest of you, this energy will play out more in 2016 and 2017. For all Pisces, beginning in November, it’s important to take better care of your health and body, as demands on your time and energy can take their toll on you.
You can be quite absorbed in your work and daily routines, particularly from April to June, enjoying new innovations or technologies that help further your interests. Health and wellness programs can prosper, particularly alternative ones. There is excitement in business, and possibly new money-making opportunities, particularly from the last week of February through to the Full Moon on March 5th, and then peaking in April. By mid-October, you may be ready to put your plans into motion. Helping you along is Jupiter’s transit of your solar seventh house. While this is largely an influence for improved relationships, the seventh house also rules income from work and services, which can increase and improve. A Solar Eclipse occurs at the tail-end of your sign in mid-March, bringing a fresh start. This is a time for reinventing yourself, putting yourself out there, and major new beginnings. A new cycle has begun that will be with you for two years, and it’s all about learning to stand on your own two feet, as well as doing an important balancing act when it comes to close relationships. You are both finding yourself and discovering others, benefiting both your closest relationships and your own feeling of independence. Owning your own decisions is an important part of this process, but later in the year, you’re also challenged to make long-term commitments and to develop a stronger sense of proportion and balance in a partnership. You’ll be working on disciplining actions and considering consequences to acting on impulse. There can be some see-sawing, for certain, and the process has only just begun, but this is an important time for learning about what you need and want. Relationship energy builds to new heights in the latter part of the year.
The summer is a good time for finishing up what you’ve started, particularly on educational or communication levels. Some of you could be doing important work on a pending project that’s soon to be published. There is some backtracking to do, but important edits are happening now that will benefit you greatly. This is a time for mapping out your future, making plans, and replacing old ways of seeing life with new views, approaches, and visions. Your life can feel especially full with opportunities for both work and play in July. September’s Solar Eclipse brings a solid push to the new cycle with you in the second half of the year that brings relationships and commitments to the forefront. This cycle can bring some good publicity as well. Work can involve more one-on-one activity. There can be a personal or business partnership forming that is mutually beneficial. Some Pisces will be getting married or otherwise merging with a significant other later in the year or in 2016. An existing partnership might grow and prosper. You may be struggling with whether or not to make a commitment, as your freedom has been especially important to you, but more and more, you’re finding creative ways to combine the two. There could be important and helpful alliances forming now, and connections with influential people who help you advance. Friendships enjoy less pressure, and as a result, you’re seeing far more value in networking and reaching out to others. Friendships tend to stabilize in 2015.
