白羊---譯者：青椒今年吧，小羊們，有老多老多的工作要做啦——並且吧，很有希望這些事都是幸運的——可能吧你想給浪漫愛情開綠燈。 （當然啦，如果你已婚，愛情就是天天要面對嗒）。然而，宇宙可能有其他想法噢。 1、2、6、7月，守護星途徑羊的性感宮，讓你的性慾蠢蠢欲動、極其敏感–——然而，可能會過於敏感蠢蠢欲動了，可能出現婚外情。你想有所改變，人生中深入的改變，性（還有經濟行為）成為你做出的首要改變。 3到4月、8/9月需求降低，開始冷靜哲學性的來看待愛情關係。某些羊可能會結婚，不過，大部分羊仍會拖延抗拒，因為你的幸運點持續在工作領域而非愛情領域。
3月中旬前愛情都是友好的。 4月份，小羊們看起來很棒、能夠吸引到甜蜜的人兒。 5月性感吸引（但長久來看，卻是乏味無聊的）。浪漫波濤甚至是火焰從7月中旬一直燃燒到8月。秋日里湧現甜蜜感情，讓你夢想親密。偉大的友誼、社交活動點亮11、12月。 2017年2月——小宇宙爆發，能得到想要的一切！
6月/7月，類似於1月/2月份的強度回歸。如今，儘管，你擁有精力與魅力與這次的強度會面，並且成功的處理。 8月/9月會帶來熾熱的慾望！如此一個上上下下年，只有堅定與忠實會讓你在浪漫中得到幸運。 10月有利於工作，但甜心也會吸引你的眼球。 11月/12月帶來重要的關係（或發展），但事業或父母的需求也會帶來壓力。
一個好朋友（或一個伴侶）可能會非常憤怒，因為你刺痛了他的夢想和希望。整年，你會將身邊人的關係協調的很好，不論比你年輕還是年長。 9月下旬開始（一整年），給你帶來一個甜蜜的，浪漫的生命時光（在84年的周期裡這種事只能發生6次）。 10月就能看到愛的曙光，關係可能迅速進展，性和諧，相互間十分融洽，但是要收斂好自己的鋒芒心甘情願的去接受他人對你的附庸。你可能不得不面對一個愛人對你的情感依戀，可能你們之間的關係很早之前就已經結束了（ex嗎）。 11月12月遇到的人可能會和你最終步入婚姻，或者是給自己的婚姻帶來新的浪漫提升。
1月到3月4日之間，強烈的愛會猛烈第攪動你的心，整個6月到7月這種感覺會再次襲來。你會有比平時更多浪漫的勇氣和磁場。在以上的日子裡也要對孩子們溫柔一點。然而你也得適應2016 的躁動不安又充滿兩面性，因為你既可能在3月到5月、8月和9月時離愛情遠遠的，這幾個月你的工作會非常繁重，讓你無暇顧及愛情。同時，三月又可能會帶來某個貼心又溫柔的人，這個人的想法或是生活方式激起你的興趣——小心，你和他可能沒什麼結果。五月會有一系列的愉快社交，並讓你對一個特別的人燃起希望。 8月和9月帶來一個有吸引力的朋友，有可能發展為愛情。
家的爭端，矛盾，沮喪，婚約的中斷都可能會發生。然後在3月-5月，8月和9月會帶來新一波浪漫能量的提升。 2月底到3月中會帶來一個潛在的甜蜜的生活伴侶，但3月份你只是因為出於慾望而追逐某人的話，最終會有失望產生。 6月帶來快樂，活潑的朋友，但卻沒有一個人是讓你滿意的結婚對象。 7月開始你的魅力開始吸引到別人，8月和9月這種能量持續上升，你變得非常自信，有人可能瘋狂的愛上了你，也可能是你瘋狂的愛上了別人。
但這段時間也可能是僅僅以一段風流韻事而結束，再無其他主題。 9月你可能會對某樣東西產生很大的興趣，10月、11月你浪漫的一面被激發，讓你在愛里充滿了勇氣。 12月重點關注家庭和事業問題，但是2017年1月會再次為你帶來浪漫的能量，從9月開始（直到2017年秋天），擁抱別人的感受會更容易。不要和那個讓你感到懷疑的、不喜歡的人發生性關係，因為那樣的話可能會讓你貽誤終身。（他／她可以互換，懶得都打了）
九月開始了為期一年（到2017年十月）的好運，快樂和友情。你會吸引別人，因為一個積極向上的情緒會一直吸引。這可以帶來極大的歡樂或者是友愛的戀情。就這點來說，這個並不是極棒的。然而，直到2018年中期，任何形式的戀情都可以快速的引領向婚姻 － 或者對於一個友好的，不穩定的，無法預測的愛情來說，可能會隨時變成婚姻，或者分手。你不會感到無聊的！
射手---譯者：ナナ”呸, 你騙誰呢!” 可能正是你對愛情這一議題的反應----在秋天之前, 你會一直這樣, 但之後就大變樣了哦. 一直到9月末, 你在事業、社會地位或者類似的領域內將有所擴張與發展, 好運連連, 而這恰恰讓你沒時間顧忌感情. 此外, 從2015到現在, 你已經成長了不少, 人也成熟了許多(這一進程將持續至2017年末尾). 你頭腦明晰, 正以一種相當正經的態度審視你的生活---- 我已經不小了, 手上的錢夠了麼?
雖然你忙於事業(或許你是在極力壓制內心的情感), 你卻會時不時地變身為超能情聖---- 隨時準備著以全新的熱情、勇氣和決心贏得愛情. 從3月5日到5月末整整三個月, 以及8月、9月, 這種熱情和勇氣將成為吸引異性(如果你是同, 就是吸引同性) 的製勝法寶. (在4月中旬到6月, 你對於愛情或許會搖擺不定, 尤其是你是男性的話.) 上述具有衝擊力的、突然的愛情會被處於另一個極端的時段平衡---- 1月到3月初, 還有6、7兩個月, 你將處於”壓制”的狀態中, 感情不知道為什麼就是不順, 或者你直接在感情的道路上撞上了艱難險阻. (如果你已經和那個ta在一起了, 這些”坎坷時段”這會成為你儂我儂的時期.)
也就是說, 在秋天之前, 愛情不是在這個極端, 就是在那個極端: 一開始, 你總是壓抑內心不讓愛情進門, 或者愛情根本不來敲門(比如: 1、2月); 之後的它卻又像反作用力一樣, 哐的一下打回來(比如: 3到5月), 因為它的法則本來就是這樣的. 但是, 到了9月, 這種一會兒上天一會下地的局面就會結束:你將開啟”願望成真”的一整年, 這包括了你對愛情的期許哦. 從這個時候起, 你的社交生活會很容易開展, 你會樂於其中. 你的圈子中可能出現一個金光閃閃的男/女神. 你一開始也許只是把ta當朋友, 之後就可能發展成戀人, 甚至一生的伴侶. ta很可能是一個大氣、自如、機智的人---- 當ta遇上真愛, ta就會想到結婚, 肯定!
從廣義上講，你正處於一段艱難/奇異期（2009-2024）——間或著感到孤獨、被誤解、樂觀、貌似某個願望就要實現了。 1——3月初、7、8月，某個願望可能真的會以復雜的方式實現了。在這4個月裡，社交行程滿滿，某個社交團體（或者是俱樂部或者是政治團體）中的可能出現一個自信、稍有脾氣暴躁、幽默的人——第一眼就給予你信號— —或者可能只是走上前就征服了你。不過，同樣是這個人——或者是你在團隊中感興趣的那個人——可能突然就結束了。我說過這挺複雜的！如果你希望這個人能夠長久，在花園派對、 廚房和餐廳、家庭及孩子（如果有的話）周圍開始這段關係——任何跟“家”有關的，因為這段愛情需要“家庭”才能存活。 3——5月、8、9月，可能你會感小貼士：3月份小心你正在追逐的人：深入了解，深入了解雙方的動機。甜蜜、純潔的浪漫盛開於5月。 7月帶來完全相反的吸引——異性相吸。 8月滿滿都是性、色情，某人到來，為你的甜言蜜語、完全進入你的意識世界。 9月帶來廣泛意義上的浪漫，一些小事情（如果拉個小手、約個小會）都變得很輕鬆容易。
水瓶---譯者：Jarway水瓶座，認清激情和愛情的區別！ （激情，是想讓一個人成為一個可以供你實行你的慾望的物品。而愛情沒有實體；它不需要滋養來存活；它讓某人成為一束光，這光芒照亮著你。） 2016的頭八個月會讓你沉浸在激情中。 （除非你拒絕這種想法，埋頭於理財和工作當中－ 這是每一個水瓶在2016通向獲利和財富的道路－ 或者結婚了的話，你必須走的一條義務性質的道路。許多結婚了的水瓶座會迎來一個新生兒。） 這個激情不一定是一件壞事，只要你保持忠誠並且堅決避開婚外“機遇”的話。但是你要意識到，一段開始於2015八月和2016年9月間的戀情，結婚的話，可能會是一段缺少忠誠的婚姻。
從三月前期到五月後期，和六月／八月，你會有很多社交機會，並且認識很多新的人。在這些社交喜悅中，一個你一直覺得很輕鬆的朋友可能會向你靠近 － 當然你和他／她可以從朋友成為輕鬆的、快樂的、智慧的情侶，甚至伴侶。但是當心三月開始的吸引 － 你之後會發現你自己被綁在一連串的無聊當中。六月一直是個浪漫的月份。八月帶領你去開心的，刺激的同齡人間的關係（相戀和其他的）。九月是充滿激情的，但也有可能帶來一個用言語和眼神觸動你靈魂的人。
我的觀點是，你可能因為愛情的事忙的不可開交，但請記住，你愛的越熱烈，那麼你面對不幸的機會就越小。把時間放在配偶和戀人身上並不是浪費，實際上這樣做會給你帶來很大的進步，助你走向成功。 2月/3月上旬，6月/7月罷工的意願強烈，非常忙碌，也變得愛談論和性相關的話題，如果你喜歡這個的話，那你就去做吧，但最終你會意識到真愛會代替它。你很有吸引力，3月金牛座和處女座可能追你，也可能帶來一些泛泛之交，其中的一個可能會和你發生一些深情的，溫柔的感情。 7月愛情方面帶來最激烈的火花，你可以主動把別人推到。
I’m not great in the stock markets, because I cannot, constitutionally, short stocks. I can only invest in optimism, despite my chronically “sober” outlook.
Destiny exists, yet the only inevitable event is past.
Cruz is today's Goldwater – not Trump. Trump is unique, a melange of archetypes: Viking, bully, impulsive, unpredictable, both shallow-minded and swift-minded (the reason his sentences often lack their second half, because he assumes you already know the answer, and will be bored by it).
But don't think Trump stupid, or a simpleton, or a “simple bully.” He stands out in this race partly because he introduced – to howls of protest and ridicule each time – virtually every major theme and idea of the entire current Republican slate. Without him, the Republican party is intellectually bankrupt. Every other candidate has taken up Trump's ideas and tried to claim them as their own. But they suffer the fate of counterfeiters: their copies are faded, overly-complex, dry – and ultimately weaker versions. They try to excuse and bolster this lack of energy and genius by calling their version a more logical one. Trump's intellectual virility/fertility has flown through the other candidates and their camps and their worried round tables like a wind, and still stands among them like a quiet furnace. The irony is that the candidates remaining now are all more eloquent and, on minor levels, more intellectual and deeper thinkers. But Trump is not looking at the last trade deficit or a senate voting record – he said at the beginning of his campaign, that he obtained his ideas from watching television and reading newspapers. This is how he sees the world: it breaks into big chunks that, to him, seem simple. The other candidates, being ordinary men (though Cruz among them comes close to heroic – he could be Loki to Trump's Thor) these mere mortals can only see as they have been taught: they see statistics, and programs, committees and “we always stay above the gloss” because we know or suspect what rot might reek below. But Trump can sit at a Starbucks and watch the pedestrians, and see chunks of the world interacting, and “feel” a path toward success. His intelligence is intuitive and swift, but seldom rises to poetic heights.)
Marco Rubio's presidential campaign motto is “A New America.” In his campaign ads, the camera pans over a beautiful city harbour at sunset as an image of this new, thriving America he envisions. Only trouble is, the city pictured is Vancouver, Canada – a tug boat in the ad is flying the Canadian flag. This is not just a mistake, but an omen.
NOTE: THIS WEEK’S FORECAST LOOKS AT YOUR LOVE LIFE FOR 2016.
ARIES March 21-April 19
There's so much work this year, Aries – and it's so potentially fortunate – that you might want to give romance a pass. (Of course if you're married, love is something that should be faced every day.) However, the cosmos might have other ideas. All January, February, June and July, your ruling planet jets its way through your sexual sector, keeping your libido alive and responsive – maybe too responsive, as extra-marital temptations can also arise. You want a change, a deep change in your life, and sex (as well as financial actions) will be one of the first pathways you jump into to make that change. March through May, and again August/September, your urges quiet down, and you begin to look on relationships philosophically. Some of you might marry, but most Aries will still hold off, as your major luck continues to flow in a work channel rather than a love channel.
September brings a whole new world, love-wise. From this month into October 2017, singles among you will meet at least one (probably two) life-mate prospects. One is lively, friendly, cheerful; one is more gracious and reserved; but both radiate a special calmness and a smooth way of showing you that a door is open, should you wish to try it.
Love is friendly until mid-March. You look good and attract sweet attention in April. Sensual (but boring, long-term) attractions in May. A romantic surge, perhaps even fireworks, mid-July to flare August. Sweet feelings rise this autumn and make you dream of intimacy. Great friendships, social delights November/December. February 2017 – you're on fire, you get what you want!
TAURUS April 20-May 20
Until late September, 2016 could be one of the best romantic years of your life, as both good luck and good karma combine. You get what you deserve and it should be good. This good luck also brings you just the kind of prospect you want – a good head on his/her shoulders, good looks, and a general aura of goodness. Romance will also be the way you like it – with plenty of physical, sensual gratification. You are already immersed in one of this year's influences: in both January/February (to March 5) and June/July, relationships of all types flare with intensity. Although this intensity might intimidate you a little, make you do a checklist of your own shortcomings or possible emotional “skeletons,” overall the fire you face should turn into the heat of attraction – juts remember to make love, not war.
From late September on, your work duties expand tremendously, which will draw you away from your love nest, at least temporarily. You might also find yourself feeling “lust” toward a co-worker or someone in your field. But if you've already started a romance since August 2015, stick with it, as you'd probably found something much too valuable to throw away or risk.
February might have brought a sweet, smart prospect, someone who can change your mind (rare!) and show you better ideas/principles to live with. March is very social and can bring light romance (the friendly kind in which your heart doesn' t pound, but your laughter is quick). As light as it might be, it is not the best “fit” for you: don't offer your heart this month; it might suffer a “friendly bruise.” March through May, no matter who you're with, sex and intimate clinches lure you powerfully. This might leave you in a quandary about who you do love. Only two warnings: watch STDs, and avoid extra-marital attractions. June/July, an intensity like January/February's returns. Now, though, you have the energy and charisma to meet this intensity and handle it with success. August/September bring red-hot lust back! What an up/down year, with the only constant being your good luck in romance. October's for work, but someone sweet also catches your eye. November/December bring important relationships (or developments) but career or parental demands add stress.
GEMINI May 21-June 20:
Before September, Gemini, you might have difficulty getting a romance off the ground. (Nevertheless you seem to have two of them – perhaps that's why neither one blossoms into a full embrace.) It's as if you keep having to relaunch a love affair week -to-week. If you do have a successful love now – and some Geminis (eg, with an earth or water Moon or rising sign) will definitely succeed in love now – then the result will tend to be a comfortable, better home. A home of peace and light, of love and health (and, if you're young, potentially a home of at least two babies). However, until September, most Geminis will actually prefer to spend time at home, puttering, relaxing and thinking – and will see romance or dating as a chore.
Despite this, March through May, and again August/September, relationships will flare with excitement and intensity. You will feel very optimistic about a possible partnership. Still, relationships will tend to go one way or the other: to intense attraction and impulsive embrace , or to heated words and angry rejection. You are dealing, both periods, with someone temperamental, enthusiastic, sporty, a loud laugher and a good friend (and an honest mate) but who could be moved to rage if you prick and pop his or her idealistic or political balloons with your pin of truth – don't brave that path! All year, you will tend to harmonize well with people noticeably older or younger than yourself.
Late September onward (for a whole year) brings one of the sweetest, luckiest romantic times of your life. (About 6 such love periods occur in an ordinary 84-year lifespan.) In October dawning love can intertwine swiftly with dawning sexual togetherness, also. BUT – turn your back on anyone already attached. You might have to contend with your loved one's emotional attachment with a prior “beau” even if that relationship ended long before. November/December might bring someone marriageable, or elevate a romance to marriage.
CANCER June 21-July 22
Small trends, until September, help you communicate and befriend someone you might want to love, or do love. But the biggest trends (2009 – 2025) indicate you will meet either your true love, or someone who frustrates you in the deepest way. But remember, 2016 is only one in a long stretch of 17 years. So you might have already met The One, or you will before 2025. To some degree, destiny hovers here, weaving the time and the person from life's threads. If you 're married, you and your mate have gone or will go through an emotional wrestling match that, if it doesn't break you up, will knot you together so deeply that no one could break you apart, ever. Generally, unhappy couples will part; loving couples will find deeper levels of love together.)
Intense love can scoop up your heart and send it on a wild ride January to March 5, and again all June/July. You'll have more romantic courage – and magnetism – than usual. Be gentle with children during these intervals. In tune with the duality and restlessness of your 2016, you might almost run from love March through May, and August/September. During these months, your workload will be so substantial that you might feel you have no time for romance. Nevertheless, March might bring someone sweet and gentle, whose ideas or life style intrigues you – be careful, he/she might be a dead-end. May brings a round of social delights, and raises your hopes about a special person. August and September bring affectionate friends, perhaps travel for love.
September starts a full year of splendid benefits in your home space – before autumn 2017, you could buy a new home, and be glad you did so, for many years/decades. Singles might set up house with a love. October/November intensifies “mature” love – love between equals. This can lead to love, fights, or an “ambitious partnership.” December – and next February – bring lust or physical intimacy. All year, Cancer, co-habiting is favoured, but wedding bells might be elusive. If so, accept this: delays in formally tying the knot actually benefit you.
LEO July 23-Aug. 22
You love love, Leo. But the first 8 months of 2016 — if you're single – offer you “nice” and “pleasant” sensual satisfaction. There is little romance and little love in it, so you might find yourself bored, eventually , by someone who's quite willing to share your boudoir. Worse, this person might really fall for you – then where do you stand? Don't use someone just to evade loneliness. That said, your intellectual and travel side remains very vibrant, and someone could enter, especially February, April and June, who turns on your mind, brings new ideas, shakes your concepts up a bit, perhaps a foreign-born person – this is not easy sensuality, but a potentially exciting, enduring mate.
If you have any trouble separating the wheat from the chaff, true love from mere sex, January to March 5, and all June/July, will put love to the test. Only real affection will survive these two blasts of the furnace. Domestic spats , frustration, a breaking off of wedding plans, can occur. Subsequent periods, March through May, and August/September, will bring hot romantic intensity. Late February to mid-March cam bring a sweet potential life mate. If you chase lust in March, disappointment will eventually occur. June brings happy, lively friends, but no one you'd be happy with in marriage. You start attracting people in July, even more in August/September. Your confidence is high, and someone could fall madly in love with you – and vice-versa!
September begins a full year of busy work, restlessness, communications and travel. This isn't a strong romantic influence, but t does say you'll travel in the service of love. If you're not attached, friendly romance is likely to arise. If you're married, engage your spouse (and kids) in communication projects and/or an adventurous trip or two. Talk will bring you closer – so will a few casual little gifts – a card, a little treat, etc.
VIRGO Aug. 23-Sept. 22
From 2009 to 2024, Virgo, if single, you are likely to meet at least one friend who slowly transforms into a great love. Between 2011 and 2026 you are, if single, almost certain to meet your true life-mate. Put these trends together, and the news is splendid. However, now to mid-May 2017, you might be wise not to marry nor start co-habiting with anyone. However, if you're seeing someone first met before November 12, 2015, don' t worry about continuing the bond – for after May 2017 you might marry. (And you can keep him/her intrigued until then.) In fact, continuing with anyone met before last Nov. 12, is preferable to forming a deep bond with anyone you meet then to May 9, 2017. With all prospects, be open to romance, friendship, even physical intimacy – but don't marry, yet.
You are very solid, logical, practical, no-nonsense, and in love you “burn hot.” Now (2011 to 2026) you have to welcome people who are almost your opposite: misty, indecisive, dreamy, and very hard to pin down – even physically, when you hug this sort of person they almost seem to disappear; yet, hugging you, they feel like they've embraced a rock, a heart as solid as a tree. Your emotions are direct and blunt: this person's emotions slosh around in a big bath tub. You can feel alternately frustrated and intrigued. But this might be the one, Virgo.
In January/February and June/July you're restless, and sex is on your mind and in your words. In March, that elusive type described above might first appear. This could be very significant – if the person drops into your lap, he/she might be destined to be in your life. But if you have to continually chase, and seldom catch this person, turn and walk away, unless you want a broken heart. All March through May, and again all August/September, you can be a bit of a dictator on the home front – be gentle with kids all year. These periods might also end a purely lust-oriented affair. You attract interest in September, but October/November excite your romantic side, and inject you with extra courage in love. December's heavy on the home and work fronts, but January 2017 brings a streak of romance again. From September onward (into autumn 2017) sensual embraces will come easily. Don't have sex with someone who you suspect will eventually bore you.
LIBRA Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Until September, Libra, you're in a restful state, which could be spent more valuably as a preparation for love, rather than in the pell-mell pursuit of love. These months are a good time to contemplate what you really want in love . If you're older, it's a good time to examine the past and how you arrived at this place. You can scan prior relationships, and by this know what kind of person you should love. In seeking a mate, this is half the battle.
September begins a year (to October 2017) of great good fortune, cheerfulness and camaraderie. You'll attract others, as a buoyant mood always attracts. This can bring a significant light or friendly romance. By itself, this wouldn't be remarkable . But until mid-2018 romance of any type can swiftly lead to married union – or to a friendly, volatile, unpredictable love affair that could at any time turn to marriage, or a break-up. You won't be bored!
All year (in fact, 2009 to 2024) a domestic problem might interfere with love. At one extreme, this could mean you want to run the race of love, but you're already married, or Dad won't let you out the front door, or your living conditions make you shy away from inviting anyone over. You can to a large degree solve this domestic “bump.” It takes hard work, but it will “free” your love life, let it take wing. This domestic problem might be inside you: eg, IBS, or childhood trauma. To reduce this domestic knot's influence, avoid starting a love affair in January, April, July or October. To catch this knot and untie it, use the same months.
Romance calls in February, June (romance finds you) August (happy friends sometimes “produce” a love prospect) and October (when your own charms are like a silent wolf-whistle). A friendly, even casual relationship in March through May, and again August/September, could turn into a life-mating. January/February and July/August, avoid over-spending on love.
SCORPIO Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Many social joys fill 2016 – at least until late September. A surging popularity, flirtations and friendly romance fill your days. From these friendly flirtations a deep bond might develop a bond that can lead to marriage, but in many 2016 will give you intimacy and affection, without marital strings. Whatever you do this year, Scorpio, don't hide in a closet – get out, extend the hand of friendship – you could be surprised at how eagerly people greet the new, happy you. You are presently in a long (2011 to 2026) “true love” phase, in which The One is almost certain to appear. However, this year (to mid-May, 2017) you can experience disappointment if you aim for deep, heavy romance or infatuation – light romance is your safety and your joy. (A Virgo might be involved.)
January to March 5, and again all June/July, your sexual magnetism and courage flare like a hot fire. You can seduce almost anyone, so the need to discriminate is in your court. Try to avoid: co-workers, sensual attractions wherein you know you won't remain interested for long, and deep, jump-off-a-cliff romance. Keep a social element in all love.
You flirt with all sorts of possibilities in January, but these end in a heap by February, as you pull back to decide what's going on. March triggers romance of the pure kind, but remember my warning. April's for work, but you might hear of or speak to someone who could be a viable life-mate. This goes through some confusion in May, then clears so that by June you might have to decide: is he/she for me? Sweet love, and wise love, arise in July. September's friendly, and love could blossom in a social group, club, political party, etc. In November you draw attention and affection, but you're starting to see how complicated everything is in a relationship, and you have some decisions to make.
SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Bah, humbug, could be your reaction to the question of love – many times before autumn, but not after. Before late September, you'll experience expansion and good fortune in your career, status and similar ambitious zones, which leaves you less time for love. In addition, you've grown and matured since early 2015. (This process continues to late 2017.) You feel sober, and are looking at your life in a no-nonsense, “I'm getting older” – and do I have enough money? – way.
Despite this (or perhaps because you're repressing the love urge so strongly) you will at times burst into “Romantic Sage” with red cape and blue tights, ready to win love with a new intensity, courage and determination. This intensity and courage will be a magnet to the opposite sex (same sex for gays) from March 5 to late May – three whole months – and again all August and September. (You could feel indecisive in love, especially if you're male, mid-April through June.) These times of intense, sudden love will be balanced by similarly long periods – January to early March, and all June/July – of “repression” – times when love just doesn't seem to work, or you experience major obstacles to romantic fulfillment. (If you are already in a loving bond, these “obstacle times” become cozy, snuggle-by-the-fire times.)
So love goes to extremes before autumn: first you repress it or it seems to desert you (eg, Jan./Feb.) then it comes back like a force of nature, which of course it is (eg, March through May). But by September this up-and-down ends: you begin a whole year of wishes coming true, including love's wishes. From this point on, your social life will expand easily and happily. From your group(s) a splendid mate prospect could arise. You are likely to meet and welcome a person who is at first only a friend, then becomes a lover, even a life-mate. He/she is likely to be graceful, calm-appearing, intellectual – and when he/she thinks of love, they also envision marriage. Always.
CAPRICORN Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Until late September, Cap, you will be under one of the two most romantic influences possible. This is not romance, period. This is romance that tends to lead to a wedding, or to a long-lived love. You'll find that love, this time around, tends to capture your mind as well as your heart. You will tend to meet someone whose ideas and ideals, advice and urgings are good for you – although you might not realize this until months, even years later. Your amorous prospects rise if/when you travel internationally, attend post-secondary school, practise law or hire a lawyer, or engage in media, publishing, religious, philosophical and cultural venues. You're far more likely to find true love in a library than on the beach.
In a broad view, you are in an odd time (2009-2024) in which you alternately feel lonely, misunderstood, and optimistic, as if a wish was about to come true. In a complicated way, a wish might really come true January to early March, and all June/July. During these 4 months, your social calendar looks crowded, and from a social (or club or political) group, an assertive, slightly fiery and humorous person might emerge – and could “give you the signal” at first sight – or might just walk up and “take you.” But this same person – or your interest in this group itself – might also suddenly end. I said it was complex! If you want this attraction to last, form it around garden parties, kitchens and cafes, home and kids (if applicable) – anything domestic, for this love will need a “home” to survive. From March through May, and again August/September, you can feel as if your amorous courage and fire has deserted you, or you might wonder if you should graciously exit. Some bits: be careful whom you chase in March: look deep, into both parties' motives. Sweet, pure romance blossoms in May. July brings your opposite – and opposites attract. August is frankly sexual, lustful, yet someone comes along who rings beautiful bells in your thoughts, who entrances your entire consciousness. September brings romance in the broadest sense, yet few of the little things (holding hands? Setting a date ?) work easily.
Late September begins a whole year of great good fortune in career, status environments, business and politics. You might be a little busy for love, yet your magnetism surges October/November. If you're free, a light, friendly romance could begin . January 2017 will bring “the wrong person” and March 2017 the wrong person but the right love. Any of these can lead to a wedding that is more status-based than true-love-based (which can work). But take care , be alert and self-aware, October intro 2017.
AQUARIUS Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Study the difference between lust and love, Aquarius. (Lust wants to make someone an object that you can exercise your desires upon; love has no object; it survives without nourishment; it makes someone a light and their light turns to illuminate you.) The first eight months of 2016 will immerse you in lust. (Unless of course you reject such notions and bury yourself in finances or research instead – which is the 2016 road to profit and wealth for every Aquarian – and an almost obligatory path if you' re married. Many married Aquarians will welcome a new baby.) This lust is not necessarily a bad thing, as long as you remain honest and strictly avoid extra-marital “opportunities.” But realize that an affair started between August 2015 and September 2016 , if it leads to wedding bells, might create a marriage that is short on loyalty.
From early March to late May, and again July/August, you'll be dancing a social round that brings you into contact with many new people. From these social delights a friend might emerge toward whom you will always feel a little casual – yet you and he/she can be lively, entertaining, witty and sparkling friends-cum-lovers, even eventually a “couple.” Beware a merely sensual attraction in March – you might later find yourself bound in chains of boredom. June is always romantic , and August leads you to bright, challenging relations with your equals (in love and other things). September is totally sexual, but might also bring someone who speaks to your soul with a kind of song that threads through their words and eyes.
Late September begins a full year of “wedding vibes.” Sometime then to November 2017, you could fall madly in love, or feel the sweet sensation of someone loving you first, then fall madly in. If you're married, plan long ( international) trips or attend school together. If single, you're most likely to stumble upon love in a library, school, law court/law office, at travel terminals, or while travelling afar or working with cultural or media organizations.
PISCES Feb. 19-March 20
You are the unluckiest and luckiest of the twelve signs this year, Pisces – at least to and including September. You'll be unlucky if you remain independent, alone, and self-sufficient. You could be the luckiest person in the world if you seek outside yourself, want a partner, and use your considerable charms to attract and bond with others. This applies to everything – friends, business associations, etc. – but it specially applies to love. Many of you will meet and marry someone who is open, honest (mostly) and unlike you in many, sometimes intimidating ways. This person will be solid (when they hug you it's like a ton of earth embraced you – talk about grounding!) and detail-oriented, precise and logical. Many Pisceans will be ringing wedding bells. But if your marriage is unhappy, 2016 can bring separation, and 2018 a legal confirmation.
You might face a decisive fight over money, or in career (bosses are temperamental) or in a court of law, March 5 to late May, and again August/September. In this, depend on the kindness of others. If you push your own case with too much strength or passion, you can alienate those who would help you (including your own lawyer). Even January/February and June/July can draw you into this if the action is to be legal. My point is, you might be too busy for love. But remember this: the more you love, the smaller these difficulties will be. Time given to a spouse or lover is not wasted – it actually advances you further toward success than hours of labour. Those February/early March and June/July periods might strike the sparks of an intense, almost hectic, perhaps argumentative sensual affair. Enjoy this if you want, but realize real love will supplant it.
You're very attractive in March – a Taurus or Virgo might chase you. May brings casual acquaintances, one of whom might turn into an affectionate, gentle affair. July sparks your deepest romantic passions – you could overwhelm someone! September brings your equal – this could eventually lead to marriage, but be diplomatic and receptive to new ideas, new ways of courting. Remember this: even a minor attraction any time before October, can eventually lead to marriage, a lucky, bright, optimistic marriage. October begins a year of deep, secret dealings. Love turns private and intimate; attractions grow sexual, and you must strictly avoid extra-marital or other tawdry temptations. But if someone's been playing hard to get, or coy, now is the time to say: let me in. For married folk, autumn 2016 to autumn 2017 can bring pregnancy.
