Now that you finally got rid of Saturn in your sign, in 2016 you will be certainly wiser and capable of facing life with a more thoughtful and strategic approach, aiming straight at what concerns your immediate well-being, above all if you are now ready to expose yourselves in big things where you will be the key players.
Actually, Saturn taught you to behave responsibly and firmly, and above all you learned the interpersonal strategy of compromise. That does not mean you have to forget your expectations, or submit to those who seem stronger than you, but just to build strategies at the right time and in the right way, learning to temporise and to not always be straightforward with your interlocutors. Saturn put you through a training of communication strategy, and taught you to make decisions and take on responsibilities only when everything changes for the better for you, with no fear of missing important opportunities or support and connections that you thought were essential for your personal and professional security. Of course, it does not mean that you have become inconsiderate, but just a bit more opportunistic and ready to seize what is better for you, sometimes putting ethical rules aside. After all, you are not meant to be saints or divinely perfect, but now you have the opportunity to use the right strategies to get what you long for.
Mars will support you twice in 2016, precisely from January 3rd to March 6th and from May 27th to August 12th. It will help you go ahead with medium-term projects, which can be realized over the next two years, but also try to be more assertive in what is really important to you, so that you can get recognition and help from those who want to support you with no hidden purposes and can spread your wings without fearing competition.
For most of January and the beginning of February, the sextile of Mercury in Capricorn will help you put some projects into practice, and settle some financial matters, also thanks to friendly Jupiter, which may bring lots of things into your life that you never thought could be achieved so fast. This is a great time to look for a job, or to change your tasks, because you may find someone who can help you get what you want.
Between March 5th and 21st Mercury in Pisces trining your sign will meet Neptune and Chiron and will allow you to be less rational and more intuitive and understand things more clearly. You may realize someone is stepping on your toes because they envy your success and charisma, which is likely to cause tension and maybe sabotages of your radically innovative plans and initiatives. So you may be appreciated by high-ups for your ideas on one hand, and on the other hand criticized and hindered by colleagues who dislike your desire for change. Just hold on, donít be discouraged, and you will see everything will be fine, above all if you are not willing to accept restrictions and impositions and will go straight ahead even at the cost of taking on more responsibilities and maybe losing some friends along the way.
All this may intensify from April 6th to June 12th, when Mercury will oppose your sign: donít give up, some more enemies can only make you more determined and self-confident, even though you may find yourselves alone when going through new experiences. Malicious gossip is also possible, but donít give it importance and just let the facts speak for yourselves.
From June 30th to July 13th the trine of Mercury in Cancer will finally make it possible to enjoy the fruits of your labour of the first half of the year, and give you the needed charisma and energies to be the winners who cross the finish line: you will leave all your detractors behind, and on the other side you will generously give credit to those who have supported you along the way. You are not prone to forgive, at least not in the first place, and resentment too has its own dignity for you.
From late October 24th to November 12th, Mercury will be in your sign and will bring new challenges in your career but also the opportunity to see your abilities recognised and consequently to make remarkable advances. If you are looking for a new job, aim high, donít be afraid of not being good or qualified enough for prestigious positions. When interviewed, just be yourselves, show you are genuinely motivated and devoted to the projects, and you will certainly be noticed.
Donít lock destiny out of your life in 2016!
The situation for love will be quite assorted: many of you may take their relationship to the next level, maybe by moving in together or getting married or having a child.
From March 12th to April 5th, the trine of Venus in Pisces will make you especially fascinating and seductive, able to win peopleís hearts and turn your love life into something romantic and unique: if you are in a relationship, things may get better with your partner, or if you are single, if you seize the opportunity to meet someone special, it may turn out something serious and long-lasting over time.
From June 17th to early July 12th, Venus in Cancer will trine your sign and you will rediscover the amazing feeling of being important for someone, which will give your self-esteem quite a boost. If your relationship had gone through a hard time, you will find the resources to put things right and regain the desire and energy to make future plans. If you are looking for a new romance, there will be plenty of opportunities, since Mars makes you even more seductive and a summer affair may soon develop into a committed relationship.
Your love season will begin on September 23rd, and will end on October 18th. Everything you have not been able to do so far, can be done now, when your irresistible charm will bewitch anyone you will want to bring into your life. You will feel so bold and driven that you will dare do things you usually avoid, above all if you fear rejection. But at this time of the year you will be certainly noticed and appreciated, and you may open up to new romances, also secret and clandestine ones, which will stir up deep emotions and a sensuality that may lead you to make radical, but not hasty or illogical, decisions.
