A glimpse at some of the astrological events and transits occurring in the zodiac during the New Year 2016 which is a leap year:
Movements of the trans-Saturnian planets during the year:
Saturn 9°-21° Sagittarius
Uranus 16°-24° Aries
Neptune 7°-12 Pisces
Pluto 14°-16° Capricorn
4th Jan Mars enters Scorpio
5th Jan Mercury stations retrograde at 1°02’ Aquarius
This will be the last Full Moon of 2015 and it occurs at 3°20’ of Cancer, a Cardinal, Water sign, it is also the first Full Moon at Christmas since 1977. In traditional astrology it involves the 4th-10th house (Cancer-Capricorn) axis so matters involving home vs work, private vs public, fluidity vs rigidity etc.
Full Moons are also known to be times when things climax, when we decide that enough is enough for certain aspects of our life because we avert an intensified conflict between two major areas of our life and we need to find a way to honour both. They shine a light on the area that [...]
Mercury in Capricorn will square Uranus in Aries at 16°34’ on December 20th.
Mercury in Capricorn (an Earth sign), at his best, doesn’t want to be thought of as stupid and demands to be taken seriously. He is very realistic and always keeps the essential in mind.

Uranus in Aries (a Fire sign) insists of having freedom of will and if he isn’t allowed this then he becomes an inconsiderate [...]
The New Moon occurs at 19°3’ of Sagittarius and is the second of four new Moons in a row at this degree of the relative zodiacal signs. So look for planets and angles that get highlighted by these degrees. Particularly in the Mutable signs of Gemini-Virgo-Sagittarius-Pisces. On New Moons we set our intentions for the month ahead and this one in particular offers the Sagittarian perspective on our destiny and our relationship with the universe.
The New Moon is on the 9th-3rd (Sagittarius-Gemini) axis of the traditional zodiac and involves such matters as; seeing the whole picture vs only [...]
On the 10th of December we have some interesting planetary contacts.
Mars in the sign of Libra, the sign of its detriment. Here he wants to adjust imbalances and fight other peoples’ battles or he might charm his way into getting anything he wants. On the down-side, with Mars in this sign you may meet aggression coming from others, in its projected form, so caution in needed before reacting.
This somewhat charming Mars will form a transiting Cardinal T-square with and an opposition to Uranus in Aries and a square aspect to Pluto in Capricorn adding even more oomph to the already restless [...]
