Libra Horoscope 2016: Major Trends
For singles, the major headline in 2016 is the love life. You entered a beautiful love cycle in August of last year, and the trend continues in the year ahead. Romance is happening. More on this later.
For those already in relationships, the headline is the career. You’re working hard, and earning your success, and success is happening. Again, more details on this later.
Neptune has been in your sign for some years now. Your already strong extrasensory perception and psychic powers are even stronger than normal. The body and image are being refined and spiritualized. Diet has become more important for you too.
Two eclipses will occur in your sign this year. One, a solar eclipse on March 9, the second a lunar eclipse on September 16. These will mean a redefinition of the image and personality. You will be projecting a ‘new look’ to the world.
Uranus has been in your money house for several years, meaning that the financial life is very exciting, with wild highs and equally wild lows – a real roller-coaster ride. Your challenge is to smooth out your earnings and to learn to deal with financial instability. There are more details below.
Jupiter will move into your 8th house of transformation on September 10. Thus you will be in a sexually active kind of period. Sometimes this transit brings an inheritance. Sometimes it brings good fortune with tax and insurance issues.
Pluto has been in your 11th house of friends for some years now and will be there for many more years to come. This is a long-term trend. Friendships are getting detoxed. Some will ‘die’. Some will get ‘reborn’. This whole area will eventually become ‘ideal’ – but the process is not always pleasant.
Jupiter makes nice aspects to Pluto until September 9. This is good news for students at college level, or who are entering college. There is success in the studies and in education plans.
Your areas of greatest interest this year are: the body, image and personal pleasure; finance; love and social activities (until September 9); personal transformation, occult studies, sex, taxes and estates (from September 10); career; and friends, groups and group activities.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment this year are love and romance; and personal transformation, occult studies, sex, taxes and estates (from September 10 onwards).
Libra Horoscope 2016: Health
- (Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, these perspectives were identical. But now there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)
Health needs more attention this year. Two long-term planets are in stressful alignment with you. Things will improve after September 10, though, as Jupiter moves out of his stressful aspect and leaves you alone.
By themselves the stressful aspects of two long-term planets are not enough to cause serious health problems. However, when the short-term planets temporarily join the party, your vulnerability increases. This year the most vulnerable periods are from May 21 to June 20, August 23 to September 22 and November 22 to December 21. The first two are more serious than the last. Be sure to rest and relax more during those periods. Do your best to maintain high energy levels. This is always the first line of defence against sickness.
Your 6th house of health is not strong this year. Thus there is a tendency to be lax over health matters and this can be a problem. You need to be more zealous here – even when you don’t feel like it. Health problems can be caused by this neglect.
Aside from maintaining good energy levels, your health can be enhanced by giving more attention to the following areas:
- The heart. This is always important for a Pisces; the Sun, which rules the heart, is your health planet. The reflexology point for the heart is shown on the following chart. In addition, avoid worry and anxiety, the two emotions that are the root causes of heart problems. Replace worry with faith.
The feet. These are also always important for a Pisces. You respond beautifully to foot massages, foot baths and foot whirlpools. There are all kinds of gadgets in the market that do these things, and if you don’t have one, it might be a good investment. Shoes should fit correctly, and shouldn’t squeeze the toes or unbalance you. Comfort is to be preferred over fashion (although sometimes you can have both). Keep the feet warm in the winter.
Neptune is in your 1st house, as we mentioned. This indicates that the body is much more sensitive than usual. Thus it is good to avoid alcohol and drugs, as you could overreact to these things.
Neptune in your 1st house gives glamour to the image. It gives the ability to shape and mould the body according to your will. Your body becomes like clay in the hands of the potter.
Your health planet, the Sun, is a fast-moving planet and during the year he will move through all the signs and houses of your chart. Thus there are many short-term trends in health that are best discussed in the monthly reports.
Libra Horoscope 2016: Home and Familiy
Your 4th house of home and family is not prominent this year – it is not a house of power. Basically it is empty. Only short-term planets will move through there. Generally this tends to the status quo. There is nothing against a move or house renovation, but nothing that especially supports it either. You have more freedom here – but not that much interest.
You seem in disagreement with a parent or parent figure. He or she seems over-bearing and over-controlling. His or her motives are probably good, but it doesn’t make it any more pleasant. More compromise is necessary. The problem eases up after September 10, but is not completely solved.
The other parent or parent figure could have moved last year and, if not, it can happen in the year ahead. You’re getting on better with this parent figure than with the one mentioned above. Siblings and sibling figures in your life could have moved in 2014 or 2015. They seem content with the status quo this year.
Children and children figures in your life are likely to move or renovate their homes from September 10 onwards. This can happen next year too. They seem more fertile than usual. Grandchildren (if you have them) are not likely to move this year.
The parent figure with whom you’re having problems prospers this year, but seems cold and aloof. Perhaps too business-like and lacking in warmth. Their health looks OK, though. The other parent figure has a stable financial year, but has very good job opportunities. Health needs watching.
Children and children figures can enhance their health by paying more attention to liver, thighs, small intestine, kidneys, hips, spine, knees, teeth, bones, skin and overall skeletal alignment. They need to take on a disciplined daily health regime. They seem to be working hard – perhaps they’re over-working.
Siblings and sibling figures have wonderful job opportunities after September 10. Health looks OK.
If you’re redecorating, buying art objects, furniture or otherwise beautifying the home, May 20 to June 21 is a good time for this.
Libra Horoscope 2016: Finance and Career
Many of you have landed dream jobs in the past two years and you seem satisfied. Two solar eclipses in the year ahead can bring job changes or changes in the conditions of work – these happen on March 9 and September 1. We’ll discuss them more fully in the monthly reports.
As we have mentioned, finances have been a roller-coaster for some years now. Uranus has been in the money house and this shows many dramatic changes in the financial life – in your strategy, plans, investments and earnings. Earnings can happen at any time and from any place. You just don’t know exactly how or when.
Mars, your financial planet, is a bit erratic this year and this adds to the feeling of instability. First, he will make one of his rare retrogrades, from April 17 to June 29. This doesn’t stop earnings, but does create glitches and delays. The financial judgement is not what it should be. It is a time for a financial review. Best to avoid major purchases or investments during that period. This is a time to attain mental clarity in finances. Things are not what they seem, and you need more facts.
Mars will also spend a lot of time ‘out of bounds’ – from August 9 to October 30. This shows a need to ‘think outside the box’ in your finances, to abandon ‘conventional wisdom’ and try other methods. With Uranus in the money house conventional wisdom is out the window anyway, but especially during the Mars ‘out of bounds’ period. You’re likely to venture into new areas – areas outside your normal financial sphere.
Uranus in your money house shows a good affinity with the world of technology. Investors are attracted to high tech and media companies. Your technological expertise is important in finance. It also favours online companies or earning from online activities.
With earnings being so erratic, it is good to set aside money from the good periods to cover you in the low periods. ‘Feasts’ will not last forever, but will tend to alternate with the ‘famines’. Both will be extreme. You shouldn’t be overly elated with the good periods, or overly depressed with the lows. It’s just the natural action of Uranus.
For some years now the old rule books of finance have been thrown out the window. You’re learning, through trial, error and experimentation, the ways that work for you. Finance is the grandest of adventures these days. And, without risk, there is no adventure.
Uranus is also your spiritual planet. Thus you’re going deeper into the spiritual laws of wealth. You already know much, but there’s always more to learn. This understanding will help you deal with the volatility that is going on.
Mars, your financial planet, is a relatively fast-moving planet. This year he will move through five signs and houses of your chart (sometimes more than once). Thus there are short-term trends in finance that are best discussed in the monthly reports.
Career is challenging this year, but ultimately successful. It is true that you’re involved with many influential people socially – and social connections are opening doors for you. But Saturn in your 10th house shows that you have to perform as well. Social connections or no social connections, you simply have to be the best at what you do. You’re in a period of ‘earned’ success. High tech and online activities seem important in the career too, and it will be advantageous to keep up to date with the latest developments.
A boss can be overly exacting and strict with you. The best way to deal with this is to go the extra mile – exceed their expectations.
Your career planet Jupiter is in the 7th house of love most of the year. And the ruler of the 11th house of friendship, Saturn, is in your house of career. Whatever your actual career is, your real mission this year is to be there for your friends and the beloved.
Libra Horoscope 2016: Love and Social Life
This year, as we mentioned, is a banner love and social year, with Jupiter spending most of the year in your 7th house.
All of you will have a more active and expanded social life. Singles will have romance and perhaps even marriage (or a relationship that is like a marriage). For some of you it may have already happened – Jupiter has been in here since last August. But if not, it is still likely in the year ahead.
Your love planet, Mercury, will go retrograde four times this year – usually it only happens three times. There will also be a solar eclipse in your 7th house on September 1. These things will test your relationship, but if it is good it will survive and thrive.
What I like here is the quality of the love life. You’re mixing with influential people – people of high status and position. I doubt whether ‘average’ would even interest you. You like older, more settled people. People who can help you career-wise. People who can enhance your status.
Love and social opportunities happen at the usual places – at weddings, parties and gatherings. But they also happen as your pursue your career goals – at business gatherings and functions – and with people involved in your career. This is a year where you can fall in love with a boss or superior. An office romance wouldn’t be a surprise.
Wealth is another attraction in love.
The love and romance aspects are wonderful whether you’re working towards your first, second or third marriage. Those aiming for marriage number four have a stable, static kind of year.
The area of friendships also seems active and prominent this year. Friends are important to you, and you go the extra mile to maintain these friendships (they too are very helpful in your career).
Mercury is a very fast-moving planet. In any given year he will move through all the signs and houses of your Horoscope. Thus there are many short-term trends in love that are best discussed in the monthly reports.
Libra Horoscope 2016: Self-improvement
Neptune has been in your own sign for some years now. Thus many of the trends mentioned in previous years still apply in the year ahead. The body is much more sensitive. Thus, as we mentioned, diet is now more important – as is the need to avoid alcohol and drugs (especially in excess). The other important thing is that the psychic faculties are much stronger than usual. Psychic vibrations – positive or negative – are experienced right in the body, as physical sensations. If this isn’t understood, it can lead to all kinds of heartache. For example, perhaps you’re sitting in a restaurant enjoying a meal and the person at the next table has a heart condition. You would feel that condition as if it were your own. Perhaps there would be chest pains, or tightness in the heart area. Or, someone you’re close to is having heart problems. The person can even be in another country (space and time have no bearing on psychic vibrations). You would experience the same kind of phenomena even if there was nothing physically wrong with your heart. Often, because of things of this nature, people check themselves into a hospital and go through all kinds of needless tests or procedures when there was never a problem in the first place – only a negative psychic rapport. This kind of thing goes on more than anyone realizes.
So, try to be more objective with the body. Look at it as a ‘measuring instrument’. Note the sensations that happen, but don’t identify with them. This will enable you to detect the source.
If the sensations are overpowering, you might need medical help. But if they’re not, work to break the psychic rapport. A hot bath often helps. Sunshine helps. Prayer and meditation are powerful. Detune from the sensation and put the attention elsewhere. If it is a rapport, the unpleasant sensations will leave.
With the ruler of your Horoscope, Neptune, in your 1st house you have great ability to mould your body as you will – as we have mentioned. The body has no will of its own. It is totally subservient to the mind. So, with will and determination, imagine how you want the body to be. Hold fast to it. Eventually the body will start to take on the image you desire. This will be an internal process. The appetites will change. Some foods you won’t crave, some you will. If you need a vitamin or supplement, it will come to you. If you need some exercise regime (it might not be necessary, but sometimes it is) this too will come. The end result will be what you imagine the body to be. It takes perseverance, but it can be done.
Uranus in your money house makes the financial life like a roller-coaster and tends to much instability. With Mars as your financial planet, the spiritual agenda here is to develop financial courage. And these days, the need for courage is even greater. More important than financial gain or loss is the ability to meet situations with courage. By now it is happening.
