Predictions 2015: Pisces

189px-Pisces.svgPisces (for those born Feb. 19- March 20): Call it a mixed blessing. For the past several years, it seems, you’ve been awash in emotions, creativity and inspiration. All these blissful feelings and oneness with the divine — yet no one to experience it with. What good is cosmic understanding when you feel so alone?

Welcome to Neptune. In 2011, your ruling planet returned to Pisces after traveling the zodiac for 165 years. Neptune is the planet of imagination, and his arrival in the sign he rules has likely enthralled many a Pisces, which he will continue to do until he moves on in 2026. He certainly made a good first impression, harmonizing with two other planetary heavy hitters also in water signs: Saturn, the planet of trials and tribulations, traveled into Scorpio in 2012 and will finish up there in the fall of 2015. Jupiter, the planet of higher purpose, made its way through Cancer in 2013-14.

In 2015, Neptune no longer needs to cooperate and blend in with others. Jupiter and Saturn have moved on to new signs, and each is slowly beginning to square, or create tension with Neptune. Whether or not the three can continue to make beautiful music together remains to be seen. [Continued at RulingPlanets.com]

Predictions 2015: Sagittarius

235px-Sagittarius.svgSagittarius (for those born Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It’s time to get real. That may be your new mantra going in to 2015. But just what does it mean for a Sagittarian to get real? That’s exactly what Saturn, newly arrived in your sign, is hoping to find out as you test the foundation of your identity and self-image.

Perhaps you’re noticing that physically, you’re feeling your years. You may be running up against your biological clock wanting to start a family or maybe you’re noticing a few strands of gray on your temples. The challenge is to find a new way to look at your aging process. Maybe you need to hone a whole new philosophy about life because you’ve outgrown your existing belief system. This is your time, until December of 2017, while Saturn, the planet of tests and trials, resides in your sign to work on that change, and then to test the concepts that you project into the world.

By helping you become more focused on the here and the now, Saturn may put a damper on your usual free-spirited way of life. Not only that, but as the year begins, your ruling planet, Jupiter, is retrograde, or appearing to move backward in the sky. From now until April 8, it could be a challenge for you to muster your usual enthusiasm or big-picture thinking. It may feel like someone or something has quashed or delayed your plans for travel or educational studies abroad. If you do travel, it may seem that your luck isn’t as reliable as it usually is.

Predictions 2015: Leo

184px-Leo.svgLeo (for those born July 23-Aug. 22): In 2015, Leo, your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to take the leap. That’s the message that Jupiter, the planet of wisdom and good fortune, has been broadcasting on all wavelengths since it entered your sign on July 16, 2014. Traveling through Leo, its role is to broaden your horizons and put you in touch with your higher purpose.

In other words, after toughing it out the past two and a half years — especially in the area of your home life — you’ve got lift off. Children of the Sun can come out of hiding and begin unfurling their many gifts and taking their long-awaited leaps of faith.

But the question is: Just where do you want to land? Prior to Jupiter’s appearance in your sign, you were itching to make wholesale changes but couldn’t quite see them through. It was easier to retreat into your cave, hunker down into the familiar and hope that the status quo could sustain you. [Continued at RulingPlanets.com]

Predictions 2015: Cancer

300px-Cancer.svgCancer (for those born June 21-July 22):  As a child of the Moon, you know all about the ebb and flow of careers, partners, home life and above all, your own identity. These areas of your life are like the four points on a compass, and when you alter the direction in one area of your life, the other three points need to change, too. In essence, with one small change in any direction, your entire life can change.

As the year begins, you are focused on your partner. Relationships for you have always been a testing ground, but for the past two and a half years, those closest to you may have seemed more like enemies, or frenemies, than lovers. Power struggles, secret obsessions and hints of darkness may have started showing up in your relationship, along with the despair of thinking there was no way out.

But as the curtain rises on 2015, you notice something is shifting. You see a distant light at the end of the tunnel. You or your partner — or both of you – are waking up with renewed hope, optimism and honesty. The marriage institution you tore down or tore apart has been transformed into an entirely new and improved model of partnership. You’re seeing things in a whole new light.
