Astrology Predictions for 2015-2016
By Barbara Goldsmith
Here are my astrological predictions and potentials for 2015 - 2016
The peak of the Cardinal Climax is coming to an close. It has been an extremely difficult time for many people who lost their jobs, their homes, their businesses. Many went through divorces and separations while others endured natural disasters. It has been a very harsh time.
We've seen governments get stronger while the voice of the people has grown louder with riots, demonstrations, strikes and widespread unrest.
We are now entering a transitional period where some of this harshness can dissolve and our earth, our bodies and our souls can regenerate towards a new consciousness, a new era.
It will probably take another 5 years for this to complete until the Capricorn Climax in 2020 when Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto are all in Capricorn. This is the point at which serious structures can be implemented. In the meantime, we have choices to make - personally and globally, that can transform our world for the better and make us proud to call ourselves human beings.
MUTABLE ENERGIES - THE WINDS OF CHANGE
With several planets in mutable signs, 2015 is a year when THINGS CAN BEGIN TO CHANGE, especially things that have been stuck for a very long time.
It's also going to mean more uncertainty. We will have to learn how to improvise and how to become more creative and innovative.
Venus and Mars are in alignment many times during this year which means that there will be opportunities for consensus. Venus softens the effect of Mars and wants to bring peace.
There will be the opportunity for opposing factions to come together for more compassion and tolerance in our world.
With the USA's progressed Sun in Pisces, gradually joining transiting Neptune over the next three years, this could mark a significant change in the psyche of America. Instead of being a military superpower, it can become a diplomatic, peace-initiating country setting a powerful example of unity to the rest of the world.
We've been living under a Cardinal influence for the last seven years. The Cardinal signs have a vertical vibration, ordering from the top down,
We are moving into Mutable energy which moves laterally, reaching out from side to side.
Flexibility will be vital for survival. Can you be like a tree that is grounded with roots in the ground, but whose leaves and branches sway effortlessly in the wind?
JUPITER IN VIRGO
With Jupiter in Virgo in its detriment from August, material expansion and prosperity can be limited. If you have this placement in your natal chart, you can probably make something out of nothing.
It's very important to think and plan ahead now. Many will continue to have tight finances. Millions will be unemployed and we will be forced to find more meaning in our lives beyond money and earthly riches. A new drive towards selflessness and spirituality will begin to gather speed. Leaders devoted to helping the sick and the poor will emerge.
Young people with a huge purpose will appear on the world stage. For example, at just 17, Malala Yousafzai is the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner as a result of her heroic activism for every child's right to receive an education.
Because Virgo rules health, and especially natural healing, we will find cures for diseases that have been with us for eons. We'll discover that we don't need all the artificial things we have been living with. We can have increased life expectancy and health for many hundreds of years.
Listed are the areas that will likely experience growth during this transit from August 2015 until September 2017:
Healthy eating, raw foods, pure foods, healthy living, healthy thinking
Energy medicine, nutrition, preventative health and wellness
Rejuvenation techniques, plastic surgery and anything involving anti-aging.
Perfection of health techniques e.g. micro surgery, nano-surgery, non-invasive surgeries, robotics, stem cell transplantation, digital health delivery
Disaster and survival preparedness
3D printing - e.g. print a house in a day
Software developers, mobile apps, sensors, translation and language services
Micro grid conversion - national grids to micro grids
Digital forensics: retrieving information from devices and networks, tracking down cyber criminals
Animals, especially pet care and cyber pets
Battery longevity increased
Robotics for cleaning
The cleaning industry: cleaning water, cleaning energy, cleaning cells,
Bacteria, infection and our understanding of germs and contagion
Water harvesting i.e. houses that generate their own water supply extracting water from air. Steel pipes being replaced with air pipes
Increased knowledge, more exploration, moving away from earth to try to find solutions outside ourselves for our planet.
VIRUSES, MENTAL HEALTH
With the square from Saturn to Neptune, we could see the spread of contagious diseases. Neptune doesn't respect boundaries and in difficult aspect to Saturn, outbreaks could be difficult to contain. Airports may be shut down, people may be afraid to leave the house to go to work or to go and buy anything. Chances are cases of Ebola continue to rise.
We can turn this around by focusing on being grateful and appreciating what we do have in our lives and not allowing ourselves to be sucked into irrational fears, phobias or anxieties, many of which are triggered by the mainstream media.
Extremes of weather are likely: very hot, very cold, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, blizzards, tornadoes and especially water-related weather events such as droughts, wildfires, tsunamis, flooding, another large iceberg falling into the sea.
Although they are looking over-inflated and due for imminent correction, but they can continue to grow this year especially while Jupiter is in Leo until August. Once Jupiter changes signs and becomes inconjunct with Saturn in Sagittarius, this could indicate sharp drops.
GOLD AND SILVER
Greater fluctuations - towards the end of the year more significant rises as people see that the economy is still worsening. According to Ray Merriman, specialist Financial Astrologer, if the price goes above $1350 the trend will be upwards. If it doesn't reach $1350, be prepared for a downward movement. Expect more deceit, lies, debts, defaults, denials, delusions, manipulations
In all areas, worldwide manipulation will continue: stock markets, foreign exchange, interest rates, commodities, real estate and of course gold.
Banks will continue to be unaccountable: recently five big banks were fined billions regarding foreign exchange rigging, but still no one takes responsibility and they still don't want to be regulated.
In the long run, gold will go up. Don't lose faith and if you have gold, don't be tempted to sell.
Stock up on food, bottled water, dried goods, sanitisers, first-aid kits, medicines, warm clothes, backup power source. Even if there is no emergency, it's good idea to do this now because prices are likely to increase this year.
With Obama's disastrous universal health programme in the US. 'Affordable care' turning out to be just the opposite of affordable, mainstream health care will continue to rise in price and will become prohibitive to many.
Take full responsibility for your health and learn as much as you can about it. Study healing, herbs, nutrition and train your mind so that you can keep yourself healthy during these times of transition. Your health will truly be your wealth in every sense of the word.
Jupiter in Virgo extends to the health of our Mother Earth. She too has gone through tremendous birthing pains with us during this Cardinal Climax. This will be an opportunity to find other ways of finding clean energy without fracking and damaging our planet. Virgo is an ingenious sign and we can use this energy to use advances in science and nanotechnology to provide us with the power that we need.
Focus on connecting with like-minded people and work with the power of prayer. We are going to witness many miracles the more we work together. Things can change in a heartbeat that used to take decades to accomplish.
SATURN IN SAGITTARIUS
With Saturn in Sagittarius, there will be greater freedom around your place of work as well as finding your true vocation. Many people will relocate to a wonderful climate where it's inexpensive to live and work on the internet. Jupiter in Virgo will encourage living with much less but enjoying a more natural and nourishing lifestyle.

I'm going to close with some of the words of a famous Libran who had Venus in Virgo, John Lennon, who wrote:
So this is Christmas
What have you done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun..
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young.
A very Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one
Without any fear...
His motto was: THINK PEACE, ACT PEACE, SPREAD PEACE.
Let's hope that the world is now ready for his message.
Wishing you all a Happy, Healthy, Loving and Peaceful New Year.
