Interested in what's to come after the ball drops? Two astrological pros, Mystic Medusa and Ally Mead, offer their predictions for 2015.
Prepare for change 2015 brings transformation. The Uranus-Pluto square series that has been going strong since 2012 concludes in April. Until then, evolve or evaporate as these two archetypal change agents challenge one another in this rare and epochal aspect.
Find motivation March 2015 is easily the most dramatic month on record. There are squares among Uranus, Pluto and Mars—with an Eclipse to boot! Remember that Grand Cardinal Crossof April 2014? It's the same kind of energy. But on the plus side: This super-volatile vibe is great for improving aspects of your health, business or personal life, as stamina and discipline are way easier to access. However, this is not a good time to enter any sort of remotely risky situation.
Beware of conflict In the coming year, you'll have many opportunities for us to grow and move on from the troubled aspects of 2014. From school shootings to militarized police, we're watching some of our most trusted structures change before our very eyes. It begins with another square of Uranus in Aries to Pluto in Capricorn on March 16. Aries wants to push ahead toward progress, no matter what the cost, while Capricorn wants to retain the status quo. Expect more violence and demonstrations until both sides agree to listen to one another, most likely in the fall.
Let it go During the total solar eclipse in Pisces on March 20, Water Signs in particular will find themselves even more emotional than usual. It's the perfect moment to release old, stuck feelings, as well as failed relationships that you embarked on or developed in 2014. Since the eclipse is in the last degree of Pisces, it's time to let go of patterns that may have become mindless or habitual.
Set your ambitions high Jupiter in Leo trines Uranus in Aries twice, in March and June, expanding career prospects, and anything that requires a little more assertion. Fire Signs will benefit from this the most, but most efforts to build confidence pay off now. Ask for that promotion or raise, and reach for your dreams! This is followed by the total lunar eclipse in Libra on April 4, which brings us back into balance for the remainder of the spring and summer months.
Take advantage of second chances Fall kicks off a busy astrological season with a partial solar eclipse in Virgo on September 13. Then, Jupiter retrogrades in Virgo and opposes Neptune in Pisces on September 16, followed by a total lunar eclipse in Aries on the 27th. Secrets or unclaimed feelings come to light, and we may need to return to the past to correct mistakes or revisit things we meant to do, but haven't. Everything we discover should be transferred to life's front burner now.
Dust off that business idea September 13 hosts a stunning New Moon eclipse in Virgo. The following fortnight is easily the best time to launch a new business scheme. Your venture will be perfectly timed for a wave of innovation: On October 11, Jupiter in Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn. Virgo wants to serve and cull, while Capricorn wants to reconstruct what failed in 2014. Expect new plans to replace old and outdated ideas, especially in the areas of schools, banks, money, police and the military.
Ease the transition Finally, when Saturn in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces on November 26, we'll lose any last vestiges of illusion as we face a new time of restructuring our lives and institutions, as well as our finances and relationships. In sports parlance, 2016 is a rebuilding year, which prepares us as individuals, partners and citizens for moving up a level, gaining more power and integrating the lessons of 2014 as we forge ahead.
