Aquarius in 2016
Both of your ruling planets shift houses this year. Saturn spends time in equitable Libra in your 9th House of Big Ideas, requiring you to rein in grandiose plans and unrealistic thinking. Uranus, meantime, enters spontaneous Aries and your 3rd House of Communication to bring surprising changes to your immediate environment, shaking up many day-to-day activities that have become habitual. The fifth and final Saturn-Uranus opposition on July 26 falls across your mental 3rd and 9th Houses, shifting the old-versus-new dilemma from material concerns to conceptual conflict. Your struggle now—the culmination of a long journey—is about letting go of outmoded patterns of thought to make room for an entirely different vision of your future.
Opportunistic Jupiter steps into this cosmic tug-of-war by opening previously closed doors when it conjuncts amazing Uranus on June 8, September 18, and January 4, 2016. Still, you can’t just blindly barge ahead, for Jupiter is opposed by karmic Saturn on May 23, August 16, and March 28, 2016, to slow you down— continuing recent themes by forcing you to manage your growth so you don’t lose what you’ve already gained. However, your greatest challenge through all this comes from a gradual spiritual transformation as evolutionary Pluto in your 12th House of Destiny forms intense squares with Saturn’s opposition to Jupiter and Uranus. You’re being invited to a shamanic journey into the mysteries of life, and you cannot refuse the offer. Additionally, eclipses in your 12th House on January 15 and June 26 can raise the stakes, suggesting that you embark on a metaphysical quest to find the answers to your real-world problems. Rather than simply seeking practical solutions, your underlying task is to integrate your everyday life with your soul’s true purpose.
