Predictions 2015: Capricorn

246px-Capricorn.svgCapricorn (for those born Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorns live in the real world, in the here and the now. But that may be about to change in 2015. That’s because, on Dec. 23, 2014, your ruling planet, Saturn, moved out of Scorpio’s realm of deep, dark secrets and into the adaptable, hopeful, wisdom-seeking sign of Sagittarius. Your philosophy and what you do and don’t accept on faith will come up for scrutiny over the next two and a half years.

Saturn — the planet of trials and tribulations – is also in your solar 12th house of introspection. Your ruling planet doesn’t really mind spending time here because he prefers the soulful alone-time afforded by the 12th. Here, he can be camouflaged and quietly contemplate his next phase of life without too much pressure. At the same time, your quest for faith and a higher purpose could bring you face to face with the habits, behaviors and even the secret enemies that play a role in self-sabotage. Thus, with Saturn in the 12th house, the potential for you to unravel is heightened, but if you play your cards right, you could come through this transit downright enlightened.

As Saturn is now traveling through a Jupiter-ruled sign, he has to conform to a new set of customs and rules. Don’t be surprised if you feel a little untethered as 2015 begins, at least until March 14, when Saturn goes retrograde. Life feels different, and for you, different isn’t always good. It requires you to be adaptable and flexible, and that means you’re dealing with unproven, untried and unpredictable people and circumstances. Oh, the humanity! [Continued at RulingPlanets.com]

Predictions 2015: Scorpio

214px-Scorpio.svgScorpio (for those born Oct. 23 to Nov. 21): What’s that we see, Scorpio — a Mona Lisa smile? After two-plus years of serious business, you can finally loosen up and, yes, even smile. That’s because Saturn, the planet of trials and tribulations, exited your sign in late 2014. If, over the past couple of years, you’ve recoiled whenever anyone criticized your appearance or identity, blame Saturn. If your presentation style has become more cautious, inhibited and wary, it’s probably due to Saturn. On the positive side, you could have lost weight or are now rocking a more dignified style. You just seem more comfortable in your own skin. Perhaps you’ve even become known as an authority figure. Thank Saturn.

If you’ve been holding back broadcasting your personal magnetism, Scorpio, now’s the time to let ‘er rip. This year, Mars, one of your planetary co-rulers, will travel through all three air signs – Aquarius (Dec. 5, 2014 to Jan. 11, 2015), Gemini (May 12 to June 23) and Libra (Nov. 13 to Jan. 3, 2016). Air signs symbolize the way thoughts and ideas are exchanged through relationships. After the heavy inward focus of the past couple of years, Mars may welcome the opportunity to learn what others are thinking and talking about. This coming year, then, represents a leap beyond simply trying to figure yourself out; your outlook will be much more social and universal.  [Continued at RulingPlanets.com]
