The Year Ahead for all the Zodiac Signs

We take a trip through the zodiac to see what's in store during the coming year for the natives of each sign.

Putting everything in context

The prognostications here can only be very general, since we are not predicting based on individual horoscopes, where we look at all astrological factors, but rather looking at Sun signs only. The year ahead for you individually will be lived out against the backdrop of the world around you, and that may affect any one of us greatly, since we are on the cusp of the collapse of the established order.

Pluto - the eliminator, the destroyer, the annihilator - entered Capricorn in 2008 and remains in the sign until 2024. During this time frame we will be witness to the complete collapse (Pluto) of the system (Capricorn). What is said in the Bagavad Gita - "I am become death. The destroyer of worlds" - is a description of these times.

Regardless of whatever happens in the world out there, for each of us individually life goes on. What follows, then, is a general accounting of your year ahead according to your sun sign.


You can count on your friends showing up for you in January. From the last week in February through the middle of March, Venus inhabits your Sun sign and sweetens relationships as your charm and magnetism reaches a yearly peak. From the last week in February through the end of March Mars also inhabits Aries. This energizes you and has you throwing lots of irons into the fire. Remember to take a breather once in a while.

The stars are propitious for long distance travel this year. If you have been nursing the urge to travel the world, this is the year to do it, for it will prove to be an educational experience beyond anything you could have imagined.

If your birthday falls on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th of April, Uranus sits conjunct your Sun and Pluto squares it for most of the year. Surprises are in store which have the ultimate effect of taking you on a profound journey of deep personal transformation. At the end of this year you will be an entirely different person than you are now.

If you were born on April 9th, 10th or 11th, Uranus "stations" on your Sun this year. Unexpected turns of events serve to break you out of crystallized patterns and present opportunities for great breakthroughs. You will probably want to bend if not break the rules in order to claim a new found freedom.


For the past two years Saturn has been opposing your Sun sign and you are likely to have felt frustrated at times with the slow pace of your progress regarding certain areas of your life, quite possibly in the area of relationships. That's over. This is a year when you can make propitious new beginnings and burn some bridges behind you. From mid-January through the third week of February activities with friends are highlighted. Your social life could be a whirlwind of activity.

From the middle of March through the 10th of April Venus resides in Taurus, highlighting your charm and personal magnetism. Others are very drawn to you.

You escape the bombardment from the planetary energies embodied in the outer planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto this year that is so powerfully affecting natives of the cardinal signs, so you're likely to remain with your feet firmly planted on the ground. What was it that Kipling said? - "If you can keep your head about you, when all else are losing theirs" - indeed, you keep it steady as you go.


You will need to keep your nose to the grindstone in your professional life from mid-January through the entire month of February. Your competitive fire is aroused during this period.

Any relationships with siblings, neighbors or in-laws which have been strained can be repaired this year, with Jupiter throwing support your way.

From April 12th through May 7th, the transit of Venus through Gemini brings out your innate charm and draws others to you.

If you were born between May 21st through May 31st you may find yourself challenged by outside forces or individuals that serve to thwart your ambition or agenda. Be patient and don't try to push the river. All things pass, and so shall this.


With Jupiter spending the entire year in your solar second house, prospects for increasing your income materialize. The doors of opportunity open, but you must be aware of that and decide to walk through them.

Your warm, nurturing, motherly side is in full flower from May 8tth through June 5th, when Venus transits your Sun sign. Your energy level peaks during the entire month of July while Mars is in Cancer.

If you were born on July 4th, 5th, 6th or 7th, Pluto's transit in opposition to your Sun this year portends a deep, transformation process unfolding in your life. The Cancer tendency to "cling" may need to be abandoned for real progress to occur. Let go what you need to let go of. It's time to look ahead and let bygones be bygones.


Jupiter takes 12 years to circle the entire zodiac, thus it spends almost exactly a year in each of the twelve signs. It entered Leo this past September will spend the first eight months of 2015 in the sign Leo, and aren't you the lucky one! Opportunity, reward, compensation, growth, expansion, good luck - these are all words to describe the planet Jupiter astrologically. This, then, is a year to shine.

From June 6th through July 18th, Venus joins Jupiter in your Sun sign, bringing good fortune along with the admiration and praise of others, manna from heaven for the soul of any Leo. Mars in Leo from August 9th through September 25th marks a peak energy period for you. This is a time to be bold, assertive and courageous.


From the middle of January through the third week in February you may find someone trying to oppose or block your efforts. This period may require you to seek accommodation, cooperation or compromise over competition.

In terms of what you want to accomplish, the year 2015 may start out slowly, but speed and momentum pick up over time, and from mid-August through the end of the year, you will likely find yourself rewarded for your efforts.

With Venus, Mars and Jupiter all in your Sun sign during October and half of November, it's all coming up roses. Your ambitions are fueled by Mars, Venus lets out your charm, and Jupiter opens the doors. Just go for it!


With Jupiter in your solar eleventh house through mid-August, your friends will be there for you whenever you need them. Your social life moves into high gear during this time as well.

From November 9th through December 4th, Venus inhabits Libra, the sign which it rules. That famous Libra charm is on full display, and Mars in Libra from November 9th through the end of the year calls for decisive decision making and lots of action.

Uranus opposes the Sun in Libra natives born between October 5th and 14th. Be ready for some surprises, for having to adjust or contend with unexpected developments in your life. No matter how much things may get discombobulated, know that the cosmos is setting things in motion in order to liberate you from patterns that have become too crystallized. Keep in mind, when everything becomes topsy-turvy, that Uranus is the bringer of freedom.


After more than two years of dealing with Saturn's transit through Scorpio, which forced you to grow up (no matter what your age), it is finally out of your sign and you can breathe a long sigh of relief.

During all of April through the first ten days of May, Mars in opposition to your Sun could bring conflict with others who oppose your effort or agenda. Seek accommodation or compromise when you can, but fight for your principles when you must.

Jupiter in your solar tenth house of career through mid-August is likely to bring opportunities in your professional life. Look to be rewarded for your hard work.

December is likely to be a happy month, with Venus transiting your Sun sign the entire time. Your sex appeal fairly smolders!


Saturn has just entered Sagittarius (December 24, 2014), where it will remain until mid-June, when it dips back into the latter degrees of Scorpio for three months, and then re-enters Sagittarius for a long two-plus years. In Saturn's twenty-nine year cycle, the time it spends in one's Sun sign is always indicative of a learning, growing period. The learning comes in the school of experience, and your learning is accompanied by a growth in the maturation process, no matter what your chronological age. Your responsibilities, your duties and your obligations become crystal clear to you during this period.

Jupiter in your solar ninth house, Jupiter's own domain, signals a strong willingness to learn from past mistakes and opens the door for a quantum leap in wisdom. The school of life teaches you so much more than whatever you could learn in a classroom during this entire year.


Obligations toward friends may preoccupy you during June and July, when Saturn moves slowly back and forth in your solar eleventh house. Whatever the case, you are likely to find out who your friends are this year.

From the last week in June through the month of July, when Mars opposes your Sun sign, you may come in to conflict with someone who tries to obstruct your efforts. Try diplomacy first, and if that doesn't work, be prepared to fight for what's right.

If you were born between January 2nd and January 12th, Uranus squaring your Sun, which happens every forty-two years (but once or twice only during the average lifetime). As a Capricorn, you most likely value order and predictability, but Uranus brings disorder and unpredictability. You will be much the better for allowing yourself to go with the flow by loosening your ties to rigidity and structure and knowing, that whatever happens, the surprises you are in for are setting the stage for you to accomplish great breakthroughs in your life.


From January 4th through the 27th, Venus is in Aquarius, and everybody in the world becomes your friend. Your popularity is at a yearly peak. Your fans gather around you like groupies.

Before mid-June, a valued friendship could be tested.

Your solar seventh house of relationship, marriage and partnerships is activated by Jupiter through mid-June, and again in mid-September through the end of the year. You are likely to realize the blessings inherent in your relationships with those you love.

Mars spends the entire month of December in your Sun sign, which signals the period to be filled with activity and an overriding drive to achieve.


During the next two years, at some point, depending on the day of your birth, Saturn will form what astrologers call 'the waning square' to your Sun. For most people this marks a time of reaching a peak in one's professional life. You can expect to be reaping the rewards due you from the hard work you have put in over the last fourteen or fifteen years.

Venus in your Sun sign from the last week in January through the third week in February fills up your love nature. Venus is 'exalted' in the sign Pisces, and what it likely means for you is that you find something in everyone that you can love. Your sweetness and charm is magnetic now, and people are likely to beat a path to your door for the sheer pleasure of being around you.

Mars is in Pisces from mid-January through the third week in March, and aren't you the sexy one!

This ranks high on my list of favorites. I have always been fascinated by the zodiac. I am elated to learn that I am past my two year phase of crappola. My Scorpio sign totally matches up with the new year and the past two. Very cool. Happy New Year!
