ARIES: 21st March - 20th April

This year is a time to take the difficult lessons of the Uranus/Pluto square and use them to your best advantage! The Sun, Mercury, and Venus all come into your sign in March and April, joining the storm before the calm so to speak as they all take their places in Uranus’ Square with Pluto, but this is just the energy you need to get things moving! Change isn’t easy for anyone, but these changes need to be made in order to tackle everything that is awesome in front of you. Get ready to shine like you’ve never shined before, because 2016 is your year to take everything you’re doing to new places you never dreamed were possible!
TAURUS: 21st April - 21st May
This year, the term Grand Earth Trine is something you’ll get to hear a lot, providing multiple opportunities to do what Earth signs do best: get things done! The Sun, Mercury, and Venus come into your sign in April and May, all of which move into Trine positions with Pluto and Jupiter. These Grand Earth Trines are all about letting go of the worry and stepping into action, giving you a chance to really see the changes and growth opportunities that come out of getting things done! This year’s Mercury Retrogrades also take up some of their time in each of the Earth Signs, and for Taurus they’ll find Mercury’s retrograde from April 28th to May 22nd will be an overwhelming drive to take some of those ideas and turn them into awesome realities! You’ll really have to face your fear with this one, but once you do it’s more than worth it in the end!
GEMINI: 22nd May - 21st June
May and June see the most planetary activity in your sign as the Sun, Venus, and Mercury take their places at this time. Mercury goes Retrograde April 28th through May 22nd, giving you a chance to revisit your ruling planet retrograde in your sign once again. This retrograde is really going to test your limits, especially as part of it is spent with the Sun and Venus in Mutable Grand Cross position with Jupiter, Neptune, and Saturn. The energy of a Mutable Grand Cross is sporadic and all over the place, making it very difficult to focus on anything during this time, which causes frustrations to be high. But the truth is, this year finds you learning a very important lesson through all of these things, and that is that it really isn’t up to you to save the world. With several opportunities to learn this throughout the year, you’ll find giving in and allowing the world to save itself more often leads to more awesome creativity for you, or possibly an even bigger way to heal the world then you had before. Stop beating yourself up in your head and start allowing the genius to come through instead this year, and see how bright your light can truly shine!

But Jupiter also plays a part in many Grand Earth Trines this year, most of which are going to give you the oomph you need to really roll up your sleeves and make something awesome out of what you have to work with. After all, this is what Earth signs do best! Mercury goes retrograde on August 30th through September 22nd, and a Virgo Mercury retrograde will force you to get out of your head when it comes to over-analyzing things, and the Sun’s T Square with Neptune, Saturn, and Mars will give you plenty of scenarios to “overthink” at this time.

PISCES: 19th February - 20th March
Neptune continues in his Squared position with Saturn through 2016, and as Mars and Jupiter enter into this aspect through the middle of the month it may feel as if everything is against your progress. If you’re finding yourself dealing with situations in an overly-analytical way, chances are your success is going to be stumped. With Neptune, it’s all about intuition, and this year’s lesson has a powerful intuitive undertone. Trusting your intuition helps you to see what is behind the words or situation, allowing you to disconnect from the emotions of the situation so you can make a change in it, while her Trines throughout the year help you to understand how much love it truly takes to have that faith in yourself. This year is all about facing your fears, learning how to go forward through the fear, and arriving on the other side of that fear in order to see the awesome results that you can achieve if you believe that you can. If it scares you that means you should go for it!
