Libra Horoscope January 2016

You begin your year with most of the planets in the social, western sector: Libra heaven. No need to tell you to cultivate the social skills; this is your forte. You are very comfortable with this alignment. You get your way through your social genius and your ability to gain the co-operation of others. On the 22nd, as Jupiter enters your 7th house, the fun really begins. Your love and social life shine. Saturn in your own sign all year (and this was the case last year, too) shows the need to keep a low profile. Yes, you are wonderful, a child of god, a darling of the divine, but tone it down now. You don’t need to announce this to others. Yes, let your light shine, but silently. Let it shine, don’t force it to shine.

Jupiter travels with Uranus this month, and this suggests a new car or new communication equipment. (This could have happened last year as well.)

Health is delicate until the 20th. A solar eclipse on the 4th puts further stress on your health. Take it easy this month (until the 20th). Rest and relax more. Maintain high energy levels. Avoid excessive worry or anxiety. Don’t let yourself get aggravated over small, trivial things. Enhance your health in the ways described in the yearly report.

Virgo Horoscope January 2016

You begin your year with most of the planets in the western, social sector of your chart. By the 7th, 80 per cent (and sometimes 90 per cent) of the planets will be in that sector. A huge percentage. You are in a social period. Personal confidence and self-esteem are not at their best these days. You are more dependent on others. But this ‘personal weakness’ is basically good, for it allows the ‘higher power’ in you to be strong. ‘My strength is made perfect in your weakness.’ Don’t try to change things now – you’ll just waste energy and perhaps make things even worse. Adapt to things as best you can. Make note of the conditions that are uncomfortable, and when the planets shift back to the East you will be able to make changes. Likeability is more important than actual merit now. Whom you know and their willingness to grant their favours is more important than who you are or what you can do. Though this seems unfair, there is a cosmic logic here: you are meant to be developing your social skills.

The year begins with a bang – there is a solar eclipse on the 4th in your 5th house. This is the first of four solar eclipses this year, but the others will happen in different places in your chart. Yes, there are changes and upheavals in the world now, but for you this eclipse is basically benign. This eclipse brings changes in the lives of children (or those who play that role in your life). There are dramatic events in their lives. Your relationship with them is changed. Those involved in the creative arts make important changes in their creativity. Those of you of appropriate age are more fertile now.

Leo Horoscope January 2016

You begin your year with 80 and sometimes 90 per cent of the planets in the western, social sector of your chart. Thus you are cultivating your social skills now – very important for Leo. The king only rules by the consent of the governed, as you learn this month.

Not only is the western sector strong, but your 7th house of love becomes very strong after the 20th. You enter a yearly social peak. You are popular now. Devoted to others. On their side. And very (perhaps too much so) aggressive in love. Be careful that you don’t come on too strong. You have trouble taking ‘no’ for an answer.

Love has been happy and exciting for some months now. Many of you married or got involved in serious relationships in the past year, and this month also seems good for this. Love happens suddenly – like a lightning flash. You never know exactly where or when it will strike. The sky may be dark, events can seem gloomy, but the lightning transforms everything in an instant. Love happens at first sight during this period, and you are likely to act on it very quickly. No one can gainsay your love feelings. Even if the whole world were against your relationship, you would still do it.

Cancer Horoscope January 2016

A hectic month: much change, many crises to deal with. In the end though, you seem successful. Just hang in, handle each issue as it comes, avoid excess worry or anxiety (easier said than done) and all will work out.

You begin your year with 100 per cent of the planets in the western sector. Highly unusual. The percentage will drop to 90 per cent from the 11th to the 21st, 80 per cent on the 22nd and 23rd, and back again to 90 per cent from the 24th onwards. Your 7th house of love and romance is very powerful until the 22nd. You are in the midst of a yearly social peak. Forget about the self and its desires for a while. Take a holiday from yourself and focus on other people and their needs. Who you are and what you can do is not that important these days. Your good comes to you through the grace of others. You need their favour and co-operation. The cosmos is calling you to adapt as best you can. Make a note of things that should be changed and, when the planetary power shifts to the East in a few months, you will have the power and the wherewithal to make changes.

Gemini Horoscope January 2016

You begin your year with most of the planets (after the 7th the percentage is 80–90 per cent) above the horizon of the chart. Thus you are very much in the ‘day’ of your year. A period for career focus and the pursuit of outer success. Reinforcing this is the fact that your 4th house of home and family is empty (only the Moon moves through there on the 22nd and 23rd), while your 10th house of career is strong. So reach for the Sun, Moon and stars now. You can safely downplay family responsibilities (you can’t ignore them altogether) and focus on your career. Sometimes we serve our families best by being there, and sometimes by providing for them and being successful. This is a time for the latter.

The western, social sector of your chart is also overwhelmingly dominant now. So the dictum, ‘not by might nor by power, but by my spirit’ applies to you now. Personal ability and personal merit seem to matter little these days – it is the grace of others, your likeability, that get you to your goals.

Taurus Horoscope January 2016

As your year begins, the planetary power is starting to make an important shift from the West to the East. For many months now the western, social sector was dominant in your horoscope. But this is starting to change. After the 20th the East and the West will be balanced, and next month, the eastern sector will dominate. Thus you are becoming ever more independent, more in charge of your destiny, more able to have things your way. Get ready to start creating conditions instead of adapting to them.

Your 9th house is very strong early in the month. When the 9th house is strong we all become students – regardless of our age or stage in life. A good philosophical or religious discussion is more enjoyable than a night out on the town. It is a period where mental horizons get expanded. In many cases there are religious or philosophical breakthroughs. We get deeper insights into the meaning of life and the meaning of events. Those of you who are literally students should have a good month – with some bumps on the road. Your interest leads you to success in your studies. A solar eclipse on the 4th occurs in this house as well. Your belief systems, your personal religion, will get tested – and beliefs found wanting will either disappear or get revised in a better way. For students this shows some turmoil in educational plans – there can be changes of school, changes in the area of study, changes of professors, changes in the rules of the game. There can be changes in the administration – in the upper echelons – of your school or religious institution. Every solar eclipse (and there are three more to go) has an impact on the family and home situation. So there can be drama in the lives of family members, and especially parents or parent figures in your life. Flaws in the home or in the family situation get revealed so that you can correct them. But this eclipse seems basically benign to you.
