AQUARIUS – Georgia Nichols’ predictions for 2016

Aquarius year ahead for 2016

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

“Which form of proverb do you prefer? Better late than never, or better never than late?

Lewis Carroll (Jan. 27, 1832 to Jan. 14, 1898)

Does your Past Predict Your Future?

You had fresh new beginnings in the early 90s, which involved new surroundings, new people and perhaps a change in your daily wardrobe. In 1997, life was still in a state of flux due to job changes or residential moves. By 1999, you needed a home base you could trust, which is why you moved again, or repaired and renovated where your home. By 2003, partners and warm friendships were supportive. (More than other signs, you value friendships and your involvement with groups.) People started to take you seriously in 2006 when you got promotions, kudos and acknowledgements. However, partnerships were challenging right up to 2009, when some ended. In 2012, you explored real-estate opportunities or improved your home scene by moving to a better home or improving where you currently lived. In the next few years, cherished dreams came true! The year 2015 brought welcome news because life has been tough since 2012. Now this is over. Yay! Relations with others have become rewarding, joyful and consciousness expanding.

2016

Wealth, Career and Reputation

Glory hallelujah! The year 2016 is so good for you, your problems are the problems of success! Namely, that you spread yourself too thin trying to meet the demands of everyone. (Gasp.) You have to stop selling yourself out because you count, too. This year, your goal is to integrate your individual self with groups. No problemo! You work well with others. In fact, it’s what you do. You get everyone to sign petitions for important causes because you understand the power of uniting like-minded individuals to make the world a better place. Plus it’s an excuse to drink beer. The reason that your ambition is your main problem this year is because others might feel threatened by you. (Eeeek!) Frankly, things could be worse. And here is the good news – the really good news! Money! This year lucky, moneybags Jupiter will travel through one of your Money Houses, which means money from others will come to you. You can get a loan or a mortgage. You might receive an inheritance. You might get money back from the government or benefit indirectly through your partner. In addition, you will be able to use what other people own. Ask and ye shall receive. You will get funding and financial support from others. Your ambition will make you work hard to achieve your goals; and meanwhile, teamwork with others will flow naturally. Be grateful life is this good.

Love, Partnerships and Friends

Because you look so good this year, of course, your romantic prospects are strong. It’s axiomatic! You’re on top of your game; you’re ambitious; you benefit from the wealth of others – all of which make you look like a winner! In addition, you will enjoy a relationship with Saturn that has not occurred since 1996-98.  And it’s a good relationship! Saturn will give you patience, perseverance and make you careful in everything you do, including relating to others. Your life will run more smoothly, which generates the kind of energy that promotes positive relationships. (Let’s face it: When life is horrible, relationships suffer!) So this will be an easy year for relationships and friendships; but there is one caveat. Fiery Mars, the planet that controls your sexual energy, will be at odds with your sign for most of this year making you quick to defend yourself. You will get angry easily. You will feel irritated with others. Hmm. Not good. Fortunately, with so many other favourable influences, this is nothing you can’t handle. Just know that this is there.

Home and Family

This is a great year for home and family. It’s an excellent year to explore real estate negotiations by buying, selling or renting something bigger. It’s also good year to renovate your home. It’s also a good time to buy things for your home so that you feel richer at home. It will be easy to borrow money to do this by getting a mortgage or a loan. In fact, this is the best year to borrow money in 11 years! Furthermore, the overall tone of your home in terms of happiness and family relationships will be positive this year. Family members will be easy going and generous to each other. You might also entertain more; you might have meetings in your home of clubs or groups to discuss something or do a particular activity. You might also have someone from another country live in your home. You will definitely have a warm feeling in your tummy this year. “God bless us everyone!”

A Sneak Peek Beyond

In 2017, you will travel more than usual. You might also go back to school or take advanced training because something will happen that changes your view of the world. In 2018, lucky Jupiter will be at the top of your chart boosting your reputation in the eyes of others. At this time, you will also begin to dismantle much of what you created since around 2005.

My Aquarius Mantra for 2016

“I am grateful for the support and help from others this year.”

Mercury Retrograde Dates in 2016

Expect delays, lost items and confused communications! Best to finish things, not begin them. These are poor times to buy cars, trucks, bikes, computers, printers and phones. [Dates below are actual retrograde dates and buffer dates. Why buffer dates? Mercury slows down before it goes retrograde and then it needs to catch up to where it was at when it first went retrograde. Use buffer times to avoid big purchases like cars.]

* Jan. 5 – 25 (Buffer times:  Jan. 1 –  Feb. 14)

* April 28 – May 22 (Buffer times: April 19 – June 8)

* Aug. 30 – Sept. 22 (Buffer times: Aug. 18 – Oct. 6)

* Dec. 19 – Jan. 8 (Buffer times: Dec. 11 – Jan 28)
