The year 2016 promises to be a year of fabulous transformations! This change is a welcome sigh of relief and will help in grounding a lot of the transformations experienced both individually and collectively. Here’s why: Jupiter and Saturn. These very important planets’ transit into new signs, respectively, this past year.
Kicking off these transits is Jupiter, the planet of luck and fortune (I call it the “big things poppin’ planet”), who transited from Leo to Virgo on August 11, 2015. Virgo is an Earth sign, grounded, stable, detail-oriented, practical, perfectionist. The last time Jupiter visited Virgo was in 2003 and this is the first time in 12 years that such an important event has occurred in the sign of Virgo! Not to worry, every sign gets a turn, every year.
Not to be outdone in the season’s line-up of transformations, is Saturn. On September 17, 2015, Saturn, the taskmaster planet that teaches us structure, order, discipline, responsibility and hard-work, made it’s triumphant entry into Sagittarius. Sagittarius will lay the groundwork for the future by setting up structures that can stand the test of time, with the potential to last for future generations. Saturn teaches us the value of working hard for the things we desire.
When Saturn was in Scorpio (from October 2012 until December 2014), we experienced different forms of intense transformations and rebirth experiences in the Scorpio-ruled house of our charts. For some, the experience was akin to the mythical Phoenix, where we felt as though we had to rise from the ashes that used to be our lives, emerged stronger, wiser, with a deeper knowledge of self and best of all, able to build new structures from the transformations and life changing experiences of the past 2.5 years – that’s how long it takes Saturn to transit through each sign.
When Saturn entered adventurous, optimistic, broad-minded Sagittarius (in December 2014 – on Christmas Eve, to be exact,) for the first time since 1985-1988, we were glad to breathe a sigh of relief and try something new….new businesses….new hair…new makeup…new fashions….new relationships, new jobs, new locations…and so much more. We all carried the lessons learned from the previous 2.5 years into this new beginning. After all, Sagittarius loves branching out into new, uncharted territory.
Well….Not. So. Fast. On June 14, 2015 to August 2, 2015 Saturn’s retrograde back into Scorpio (think of a retrograde motion as a planet in reverse, moving backwards) felt like a teacher checking his students’ homework to ensure lessons learned were applied correctly.
Finally! On August 2, 2015, Saturn ended its retrograde in Scorpio and resumed its forward motion through the last degrees of Scorpio until it made its triumphant entry into optimistic Sagittarius on September 17, 2015, to stay there until Dec. 2017. Awesome, right?
Pisces (Feb 19-March 20)
Compassionate, Sensitive, Intuitive. Lover of all things whimsical.
Here’s a celebration of the fabulous things ahead for you.
Pisces, you love to indulge your senses and escape into your dream world, fantasies and imaginations. This helps you cope with mundane expectations the real world has of you. Your fantasies are rich, colorful and form the foundation for your amazing creativity and creative self expression.
You are deeply attuned to the ebbs and flows of human emotions and you tend to soak up others’ emotions even without knowing them! This must be exhausting for you.
This past year, you may have done your best to cope with challenges, including scheduling regular visits to the doctor to ensure your health is in tip-top shape for the rather long hours you have been working lately; while others may have felt a push and pull effect between wanting to escape from the pressures of work or health situations by traveling or immersing yourself in higher learning or learning something exotic.
It’s been work, work and more work for some time now with little time for romance. Finally, dear Pisces, the reward for your hard-work is here!
This season, of all the signs of the Zodiac, you have the very best opportunities for getting that soulmate connection you yearn for. Sensitive, ethereal Pisces, you long for a romantic relationship with dreamy qualities….just like the movies! You yearn for a soulmate connection with a side-order of psychic intuition.
Pisces, in relationships, it is easy for you to be the martyr because of your kind and empathetic nature. Avoid being taken advantage of. You are not known for firmly drawing a line in the sand, however, getting crystal clear and defining your needs, dos and don’ts in relationships; injecting reality and practicality into your dream relationship is just what Jupiter (planet of luck) is asking you to do as he makes his visit to this section of your chart.
Saturn (the taskmaster planet) will continue helping you define, structure and give concrete form to creative vision. You are well on your path to building a career that you truly want to achieve success in. You just have to be willing to strike that sometimes elusive balance between doing the practical work required and keeping your head in the clouds.
Get ready to become a master of giving concrete form and structure to your dreams and fantasies.
In other words, you can have a clear shot at a solid relationship, establishing a business and/or a significant career achievement.
