The year begins with an assessment of where you are, and how you will move ahead as we move through the next 12 months. The desire to pause may be the result of a romance that hits a snag in January; try to hold off on any major decisions in love. Creative projects, recreational pursuits, and fun with folks who encourage you to tap into your inner child will feature, and this activity will be what inspires you to live life more authentically. Meanwhile, Eclipses in March bring new beginnings in partnerships, whether business or pleasure. A romance that finds sturdy ground in February could peak to a full-blown commitment by September. Of course, this means getting clear on what you value in partnership, and of course, acknowledging your worth.
A major theme that will play out this year centers on home and family. This was a theme in 2015 that may have brought a few jolts and misfortune. As the structures beneath your feet and in the way of family dynamics, bring restrictions and limitations, you will be challenged to identify new structures and dynamics that make you feel emotionally secure. This means tending to your own garden, planting some new seeds, and focusing on the core of your being in a way that ensures long-term stability. April through June sees much focus on domestic matters; some of you may be relocating, or taking on additional financial responsibilities for close relatives. This three-month period will be stressful, with May proving to be the most difficult. You will try to be reasonable, but your own personal philosophies will be challenged. It is equally possible that your desire to travel, or enroll in an education program, is put on hold due to family obligations. Important partners may even question how you live your life. Remember, however, that it is your life. Stand firm with what is true and avoid alienating others. The month of May begs the need to hold off on big decisions again. Consider this a momentary blip that will work itself out.
July through the end of summer will bring an important shift from this mid-year activity, while fall eclipses put you back on your A-game. Remember what I said at the beginning of your forecast; new perspectives, development, and a new you are in store, even with the challenges you may face. The latter half of 2016 sees you thriving with increased energy to focus on personal goals. September might bring delays, so wait until October to push forth on your agenda. By this point, a new phase begins that will bring more in the way of abundance and material wealth. What can I say; sometimes life gives us lemons. Sometimes life gives us magic.
Happy New Year, Virgo!
