In many ways, you'll feel as if this is your year and the sky truly is the limit. Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance, moved into your sign back in mid-August 2015 for the first time in 12 years. Until September 9 of 2016, you'll enjoy the most brilliant form of cosmic support there is. You've entered a brand-new cycle of opportunity, and whatever else happens during this year it'll be couched in a feeling of optimism and faith. Somehow, you'll just know that it'll all turn out alright.
Relationships and self-development are areas where you're likely to feel your strongest blessings. If you're single, romance comes alive near March 16 and June 26 when Jupiter will be at a perfect angle to transformative Pluto, now in your 5th House of True Love. If you're attached, it's possible that these dates will focus more on a child or a decision to have a child. Again, the outcome looks promising! Eclipses on March 8, September 1, and September 16 across your 1st House of Self and 7th House of Relationships will add to the energy of learning how to grow harmoniously in partnership. For you this is achieved when you strike the balance between living in the real world with your mate while also surrendering to a spiritual union that can't be explained in this physical world we live in.

A house divided
There's plenty of room for personal growth, and for the most part it will be wonderful. One area, however, that might be a karmic sticking point in 2016 is family. You seem to have your work cut out for you in this area. Perhaps your relationship with a relative has been less than smooth. If so, view this year as an opportunity to make things right, no matter how painful it might be to do so. With Saturn moving through your 4th House of Home and Family all year, there's simply no escaping the lessons you're meant to learn connected to your relationship with your clan.
Mars will turn retrograde in the same area of your chart on April 17, and until May 27 you'll have an opportunity to review the strategies you've used up until this point to address domestic matters. It appears that you'll need to dig deeper and consider a new approach if you want a different result.

Pick your battles
Then, from May 27 until June 29 Mars will retrograde through your 3rd House of Communication. If you've been quarreling with a sibling, this will be your golden opportunity to let go of any anger and resentment and decide to forgive and let go of your attachment to the situation. Do it for your own peace of mind. Fortunately, with Jupiter in your sign it'll be easier than ever to take the high road in any tense family situation. After September 9 Jupiter will enter your earned income sector. Money will begin to flow in the most remarkable way as you develop talents and confidently display your worth to others.
