AQUARIUS: YOUR 2016 YEAR AHEAD [Harper's Bazaar]
All About You
You have the reputation of rebel, innovator, renegade, blue sky thinker, and others may say you are still linked to the mothership of some far-off galaxy. There's even a bright twinkle in your eye that feels somewhat otherworldly. A lot of this has to do with the fact that Uranus is your ruling planet, and unlike every other planet in our solar system, Uranus spins the opposite way and on its side! You and the members of your sign are the designated ones to help usher us into the future of new ideas—out from the old stodgy ways of the past. Aquarius rules all things technological and the genius ideas that are yet un-manifest in the collective. Yes, it's partially your job to "water" the collective with your brilliant ideas and that's much of the reason for the symbol of Aquarius being the water bearer. In the image of Aquarius, the earth is being quenched with "new ideas" to fertilize the soil of consciousness. Ok genius, let's talk about what 2016 holds for you.
The Big Picture for 2016
The last few years seem to have been dotted with many short trips and unexpected changes to your routine. First of all, life will enter a more steady rhythm as you will begin to develop new ways to develop income from your creativity. You did all of the heavy lifting on the job back in 2012- 2014 with Saturn in your career sector, and now the cosmos will deliver you sweet rewards in 2016. And your bank account will finally begin to reflect all of hard work and discipline you put in back then.
The spring will begin with a Solar Eclipse on March 9—which is a total game-changer kind of boost to your self-image and your income. And this eclipse will set the tone for your whole new year to come. You may turn a hobby into your dream job or discover a brand new source of income —raise your rates. On top of the eclipse which sets the theme, Jupiter will bring more abundance to your financial sector in the first half on 2016, as the company in question will seem to have a much larger budget than those of the past.
If you are thinking of changing jobs, it may be best to do so in the first half of 2016 while you have the beneficial rays of Jupiter on your side. If you have just had a child and taken time off work, this is your year to re -enter the job world and you'll be happy to see that your skills will be well compensated for.
September will punctuate this financial upswing trend as the eclipses suggest that you will likely depart from an old sense of security in order to flourish somewhere else. This will feel like a risk, though a good one, and somewhat non-negotiable. This new source of income does not seem to be in the form of a paycheck either. As Jupiter ushers in abundance, opposing Neptune may reveal hidden leaks. Hence you may want to periodically check for things like re-occurring payments that you did not sign up for. September will ask you to expand outside of your comfort zone and take a leap of faith. Go for it! A personal vision that may have been a work in progress since 2011, will come into a clear focus by November as the visionary aspects of Neptune will help bring your dream job into a crisp reality.
Home and Travel
If you are looking to move into a larger home, the month of May will be your ultimate best friend with a golden triangle of planets in earth signs supporting your efforts to land a dream home. Specifically a wondrous new Moon on May 6 will tie in Venus, Mercury, Jupiter and Pluto to work some magic for you so explore your possibilities. You will also have luck getting a hefty loan from the banks while Jupiter is still in your financial corner in the first half of 2016. The second half of 2016 will feature more travel and a key opportunity to bring your message into the world. Perhaps you will discover a master class to perfect a skill or enroll in a program you have always dreamed of. October will begin with a New Moon powered by Jupiter in your house of travel—this will be a grand opportunity to visit that far-off exotic land that's previously only lived on your vision boards and day dreams. It is also possible that you'll go on a luxurious trip that is on a company budget as Venus has full reign over this new moon.
Love and romance will sparkle at the end of spring with a June New Moon that kisses Venus (planet of love and beauty), though it also shows that this relationship will be tested early on (with the opposition to serious Saturn) which can draw you much closer if you are both committed. If you are looking to get pregnant, June, will as well, be your best time. Ready to tie the knot? Early August will look divine as your partnership and marriage sector will light up with a friendly angle to Saturn (planet of long term commitment). This will be a solid and stable time to make that life-long commitment.
