Claire's 2016 Year Ahead Horoscope

Claire Petulengro's 2016 year ahead horoscope.

Is the year ahead all about love and lust? About family? Or will you just be working from dusk till dawn? There’s an array of activity in our skies to ensure we can all succeed in 2016.

Read on for Claire's indispensable guide to where the pitfalls and opportunities lie in 2016.

ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

Love
Uranus has been in your sign for the last five years and is sure to have made for the feeling that you’re waiting to make sure the train you’re on is going to take you to your promised destination. Here’s a clue to your success. First, you have to let those concerned know that your heart is in the journey! Doing so by February can see a throng of proposals!

Lust
You share the same ruling planet as Scorpio and you know by now that you are not in charge of how you act when you are feeling lustful and longing for someone or something. The fantastic news in 2016 is that Saturn finally gives you the words to be believed and so this could be your hottest, most romantic and passionate year yet. Beware of an ex tantalising you in March!

Family
You love your family. Of course you do, you’re an Aries, but over the last year it has not been easy to show it as they’ve put you in so many difficult positions. Talks you have before March can do much to enhance your relationship with loved ones, especially those of the generation above you. New additions to the family from June make for a memorable summer.

Money
With Saturn still in your ninth house and continuing there all year, you certainly won’t be short of opportunities to earn money in the year ahead. Some of you are a little shy of finishing work projects, but bite the bullet and get it done. There may be an unexpected bonus for you if you do this by November my friend.

Health
You may think you’re tired, but you’d be wrong Aries. In fact, if you can fight through any lethargic feelings in the New Year, then you’ll see just how strong you really are. 2016 shows us a much fitter and stronger ram who’s ready, willing and able to take life head on. Overwork in March could see some of you feeling the strain synonymous with your sign.

Work
So what sort of a job was your sign born to do then Aries? Well, anything which brings change and excitement, where you get the chance to prove how good you are at thinking on your feet. You don’t like taking orders, but you rise to the challenge, so don’t rule out working for big name organisations this summer. It can lead to unexpected benefits and success.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

Love
I love your sign in 2016 Taurus, for you really are thinking on your feet and are able to see with ease who is an asset to your life and who us using you for what they can gain for themselves. There’s a new found confidence from mid January which sees you unable to suffer falls gladly. As Saturn has now left your seventh house, you hold the reins in relationships. About time too!

Lust
As with you taking control of your love life, so too you take control of the sexier side of your nature. Not in years has your confidence been this strong. You won’t be afraid of asking for what you want and this could also see some of you bulls turning a friendship into love. There’s not a better base for your sign, but those who don’t do this will be turning lovers into friends, so its win win all round.

Family
Now, I didn’t say that every aspect of your life would be perfect, as that’s simply not how life works, but what you can look forward to is a better understanding of why close ones act the way they do. Your sixth sense is strong and so you will know, especially between March and June, when to leave family issues and when they can be pushed. Listen to these instincts.

Money
You made and lost a lot of money in 2015, but did you really learn any lessons from all that occurred? I hope so Taurus as, by being more sensible with your cash flow, you will be able to acquire belongings, riches and experiences that you’ve only ever dreamed of. Putting your own money into business is well starred, especially in June and December.

Health
Your sixth house tells me that many of your sign will not even be thinking about health worries until at least September or October, but that doesn’t mean you can take it for granted either. Look after your body my friend and it will serve you well for many years to come. Work and play hard and you could risk fall out by August, so it’s all about balance, something you’re actually willing to achieve with a little thought.

Work
Your house of work is under pressure, there’s no denying that, but the reason for this is that you’re asking for it. You want to work hard and you seem to feel there is a time limit to what you are doing. That could be true, but remember that quality is as important, if not more important, than quantity. Friends you make through work this year prove the lasting kind.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

Love
Emotions got the better of you at the end of 2015 and you were left asking questions you simply couldn’t find the answers to. I know you feel as if you’ve lost some time somewhere, but you can make up for it and then some if you would be more honest about what you want from a partner. Revelations in May and June change life like never before, in a good way.

Lust
When you’re good, you’re very, very good and when you’re bad, you’re unforgettable. Do you really want to be known for thoughtless, impulsive actions? Or do you want to show that you’ve learnt something over the last five years. Be true to you and don’t flirt with those you know have low standards. You’ll regret it when sense comes knocking in July.

Family
With Jupiter sitting happily in your house of family, you haven’t felt this well supported in months, but the key to you keeping up this game of happy families is to know when business and personal need to separate. Your sign really does need to be careful of going into unadvised business relationships with loved ones. Work and play are best kept apart for now.

Money
The chance to invest more money into your personal life makes for a really exciting twelve months ahead. Some friends may say it’s a waste of time, but you and I know you are now working towards your long term future, not just what can benefit you in the weeks ahead. A great year to buy and sell properties and, for some of you, more than once too.

Health
You may know that you run on nervous energy, but you seem to get away without it affecting your health in an overly dramatic way. I can see though, that forced changes in the family have made it possible for you to reflect on what makes you tense and anxious and so you now know who to keep away from. Now you just have to put thought into action.

Work
You’ll find yourself having to work with people you don’t really gel with, but it’s only on a temporary basis Gemini. Your fourth house of home and family is more important to you than work and so you may end up telling silly lies in order to get more time with those you love. Just don’t be obvious with your stories. Try reaching out to superiors’ and colleagues’ maternal sides instead. It’s how you’ll connect and get understanding.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

Love
Neptune your planet of good fortune hands you the power to get who you want, how you want them. This is something some of you have not had the chance to do in several years. Play fair though Cancer as, when the mists have cleared and lovers see what games you’ve played, then you could end up getting your fingers burnt. Opening up your eyes and heart to love pays dividends.

Lust
I’m afraid that it is going to be increasingly hard as this year goes on for you not to show how you feel or what you’re up to. You used to think you were a game player, but now you’re just part of a bigger game as those you want to get to know or seduce will see what you’re about to do before you’ve even thought of it. White lies come back on you February and June. Beware.

Family
You are going to find it hard to cut someone loose from the family circle who wants to live a more independent life that you’ve so far allowed them. Try to see things from their point of view. Don’t put pressures on others that you wouldn’t wish placed on you. An extended family enters your circle from August. Welcome them. They were tailor made for you.

Money
The heavens give money with one hand and then take it away with the other. You no longer find it possible to second guess other’s moves, but you’ll have to have faith in their words and promises. Showing that you believe in them is half your battle but, by the time you reach June, you will know who has and will continue to stand by their commitments.

Health
If you would be more honest about when you are feeling strong and when you are lacking energy, then you would be a happier sign. It is when you try to plough on regardless that things seem to get the better of you. A boost to your health in May gives you reason to want to look after yourself properly.

Work
I can see with Uranus still in your tenth house that you’re still working on a long held dream or ambition. You’re getting there Cancer, and written confirmation you get in March and September help you realise that you’re now firmly on the right path. For many of you, it seems a new and colourful face in your career becomes a permanent part of your business dealings.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

Love
The more you believe in yourself, the more others will believe in you too. Part of the reason you had such a sticky end to 2015 is that you stopped believing in what you want. Venus has your back and the more you ask for, the more she will give in 2016. Dream big my friend and ensure you do wear your heart on your sleeve. Romance is waiting.

Lust
You like to keep what goes on in your personal life behind closed doors, but that may not be possible this year as you are attracting some really colourful characters into your life who will bring out the naughty side of you. The more you play, the more mischievous you become and this could be the year when others get to find out what and who really makes you smile.

Family
Of course, your family aren’t going to approve of the decisions you’ve made in your personal life. How can they? You’ve made them second best but, if you make the effort to give them a little of your time from March onwards, then you’ll start to see them soften and mellow. A happier relationship evolves from September with a younger person, so hang on in there!

Money
Cash flow is not as fluid as you’d like it to be when you enter the New Year and, if you can, have a back up plan and then put it into action. You will feel so much better with a little security behind you. Don’t lend money to family or friends unless you’re willing to give it. An important relationship could depend on this fact. Paying out for travel you’ve already planned is allowed.

Health
The reason I said you should go ahead with a trip this year is that I can see from the health sector of your chart how much you need a break, my friend. Not only have you been burning the candle at both ends, but you’ve been trying to support everyone else and their problems too. You can delegate from March, so make sure you do. Others want to help, and should.

Work
A change to the way you do your work is forecast and you may find yourself having to play a role you don’t feel your qualified for. You can do anything you set your mind to though my friend, so have faith in yourself. You are, I have to say, a little overworked in 2016, but you can handle it if you are enjoying what you do. You’ve taken a long time to get to this point. Embrace it.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

Love
You want someone who can make you laugh, who understands when you need support, but who also understands when a sign such as you wants to be left alone. This is not an easy order, but it is one you can get if you ask for it from the outset and not months after you’ve pretended you’re more easy going than a Libran my friend. Be you, to find true love.

Lust
Uh oh. Uranus is in your eighth house and you’re going to be feeling the need for experimentation and wild thoughts. This isn’t a bad thing, unless you’re thinking of doing it with someone who’s not your partner, in which case, you need to know that your actions are and will continue to be on show for all around. Be willing to stand up for all you do.

Family
This year, exercise your right to have the life you want. If you decide not to make choices then, of course, you risk family making choices for you, as they have done over the last few months. An older person surprises you with their support over the summer months and it may even stretch as far as financial back up to help your dreams become a reality.

Money
The more money you make, the more you want, don’t you Virgo? You’re not greedy. You just have a taste for success which brings out the competitive side in you. Well, ok. You may be a little greedy when you really get going, but you have a heart of gold. Please save some cash for travel and moves around November. You’ll thank me if you do.

Health
There is a rather slow and sluggish start to January which may leave you feeling as if you are behind the times with your schedule and plans. That’s not so my friend. The stars are simply trying to show you what needs to be done to make the most of the next twelve months so use January to plan. Your future success depends on a firm base.

Work
This is the year you look at new career paths and start to work on a more constructive outlook than you’ve had in the last twelve months. You were relying on others, I see that, but you were let down by broken promises and half hearted attempts from those who said they’d help you. Work and love mix well from July when it will be possible for you to find balance and harmony at long last.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

Love
Your emotions get the better of you at the beginning of the year and you start to worry about things which are not under your control. Remember Libra, that if you think something will fail, then it probably will, but if you believe in what you want, it can be yours for the taking. You’re exuding star quality, so try to have faith that you deserve the best in life and it will come to you.

Lust
You’re changing your taste in love and you no longer feel the same way about those who excited and invigorated you. That’s because you’ve realised over the last two years that beauty is only skin deep. You want and deserve to have someone who will travel half way round the world for you and, with the long distance attraction predicted, that will be exactly what some of you get!

Family
You don’t have to tell family everything about your life you know. In fact, sometimes it can be healthy to leave a little something to the imagination or you don’t have anything to cherish and daydream about, as I know your sign all too often likes to do. A change in the family which is beyond your control will lead to happiness, so try not to worry, but show support.

Money
Jupiter and Pluto join forces to provide you with better financial aspects than you’ve had in many moons. You’re not feeling as strong as you should when dealing with monetary issues and so you may sweep important issues under the rug. Try not to. You hold the power of negotiation thanks to this beautiful planetary partnership. Money and travel see a long held dream coming true this summer.

Health
You thought you were not strong enough to deal with all that was on your plate last year, but you were wrong. You’ve shown you’re made of really strong stuff and if you can have faith in your abilities and your strength then life will surpass your wildest expectations. Minor health problems can become expensive if you don’t get them sorted by June.

Work
You’re really holding your own at work and some important faces now know your name. Try to work on what you want the long term results to be, as you have been trying to please those who don’t care about longevity, only instant gratification. Investing in your own company or education bodes well for 2016.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

Love
It is going to be more than a little tempting for you to rush into love in January, but trust me when I tell you that it can only be in your interests to take your time. The good news is that what you’re working on has the power to last, but you need to build a solid foundation in order to work as a team. Venus promises they fall as quickly as you do, especially with events in August.

Lust
It will be hard as you enter 2016 for you to tell the difference between love and lust, but that’s because your sign oozes sex appeal and you need someone who can satisfy you mentally and physically. A flirtation which fizzled out last year comes back with a vengeance in February and it’s going to be up to you to decide quickly what to do about it.

Family
Family have not always understood you, as you’re an individual sign with needs which the rest of the zodiac often find difficult to understand. From February, you no longer feel responsible for those who dragged you down at the end of 2015 and you start to feel that you are finally able to live your life for you again. Enjoy, and without the guilt you felt 2015 Scorpio!

Money
You have the ability to earn really good money in the next twelve months, but let’s not forget that you are also a sign who likes to spend it. Try to make a game plan for yourself sooner rather than later. It can make all the difference to how others view you and to how you feel. Financial gambles in your career bode well in March and May.

Health
If you’ve studied your sign over the years, then you will know that Scorpio rules the reproductive system and, with a blast of energy in your stars, we may well see more pregnancies amongst your sign than any other in the next twelve months. This could make you smile or make you worry, so be aware of your actions.

Work
You start to work out what it is you want to do with your life. No longer are you willing to dance to other’s beats. You can only do a job if you feel it is in your best interests and leaves you with a feeling of satisfaction at the end of the day. Saturn promises this will be the case in October but until then you have to prove to others you mean what you say with hard work and graft.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Love
Venus not only has your back in love, but she’s given you the edge on the competition. If you spent much of 2015 trying to ward off an ex or trying to show that you have the edge in ownership stakes, then this is the year you’ll be staking your claim! One word of warning Sagittarius. It doesn’t suit you to gloat, so ensure you’re playing fair, especially when there is no need this year for you to be underhand.

Lust
There was a time when you would have crept around just to have fun, but you’ve done a lot of maturing in the last few months and you only want to do what you want people to see and know. That’s why in April you’ll be making an announcement which will prove that yours is the sign to seduce. You’ll continue seducing whoever you set your sights on!

Family
With much emphasis in the Eastern section of your chart I can see that you have, and continue to hold, the gift of charm with your close ones. What you want can be yours as you work your magic. Ensure that you show them that last year’s blip will not happen again. This is a great year to kick bad habits for good, especially in May and July.

Money
There is money in your chart, but your problem appears to be more to do with it flowing out with such speed. You’ve had a really dramatic five years where you haven’t known for sure whether you were in the red or the black, but news which comes your way by July will confirm that you’re finally on the high road to success. Geminis link to great business deals.

Health
You kick start 2016 with the energy and foresight to plan a really great year, but others may not be as willing to accommodate you as they said they would. That’s why you have to enter January with energy and vigour and be willing to do the hard work yourself. Balance between the personal and the professional will dictate your health, so plan sensibly please.

Work
Focus on the individual steps you need to take to achieve your goals, rather than worrying about the entire journey. You have had more on your plate professionally than most signs have in two years. Give yourself a pat on the back. What you want can be yours with some forward planning and a little self indulgence. Filling in important paperwork before March is the key to success.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

Love
What you thought was love could well turn out to be lust, but many of you earthy Capricorns may be quite happy with that after the tense time you’ve had in the last eighteen months. You don’t want to lose control, which could be the reason many who know you personally will tell you that you’re controlling. You are, but you need to be until March.

Lust
There is a slow build up in 2016 as you evolve as a person in so many ways. What you wanted from a relationship has changed and will continue to change until you can be sure that you can trust and rely on those closest to you. New attractions beckon via work meetings which are unplanned. Spontaneity brings out your sexiest side yet.

Family
You love your family, but you’re not always the best at communicating with them. Let’s try starting 2016 by talking and not shouting. It’s what will give you the edge in any backlash you may experience. Good news for an older family member puts the fun back into family affairs again, as they no longer have to play a waiting game for news and results.

Money
If you can save a little more money instead of spending everything you have on those you love to show them you care, then you would be seen as more mature and gain respect. You of all signs should know that love is not material, but emotional when it comes down to the crux of what’s important. Financial opportunities come via a foreign contact in May.

Health
2016 begins with you feeling as if you’re taking two steps forward and one step back. Let’s look on the positive side Capricorn, you’re still moving in the right direction! New forms of exercise and relaxation are they key to you feeling at your best. Events in love in July to September also see you feeling ten years younger. Lucky you Capricorn!

Work
If you can work hard at the beginning of 2016, then you should be able to take some real quality time off later in the year. You’re building up to something which will look after your long term future. Others will be trying to tell you how to do your job, but remember your experience and use it to your full advantage.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

Love
Dare to live the life you dream and watch your dreams come true. You were afraid over the last five years to ask for what you wanted, but that no longer has to be the case. You’ve done a great job of learning life’s relationship lessons and you’ve come out a far stronger person for it. Chances you take in relationships throughout this year are about to prove that.

Lust
You can be one of the most seductive signs in the zodiac when you put your mind to it, but you have spent so long in the last few months trying to get the mechanics of your life back on track that you didn’t have the chance to think of seduction. All that changes from March when life, love and lust finally offer you what you’ve been waiting for.

Family
Family are asking you questions you don’t need to answer. If only you would give yourself a break and realise you have the right to say nothing when asked questions, then you’d feel more confident and people would listen to your needs. Younger family members pleasantly surprise you with the way they finally stand on their own two feet.

Money
Jupiter helps you to make the money you need to go solo with your career. Throughout 2016 you start to gain confidence and make the kind of progress which you’d previously only ever dreamed about. This is a great year to clear old debts and to wipe the slate clean for a fresh start in life financially and professionally.

Health
Others are only looking out for you when they say they’re worried about you Aquarius, but you seem to think they’re up to something or trying to jeopardise all you’re working towards. Not true, and you’ll discover this fact for yourself from June so play it cool before then. Health aspects promise you the best summer you’ve ever had with unforgettable action and travel.

Work
You may find yourself having to do other’s work for them as you’re placed in the role of supporter in other’s careers. This is a good thing Aquarius, as aspects suggest they’ll be indebted to you and willing to help you to make your mark in the world when your time comes. And come it does from August when the stars offer you your chance to shine at last. Be ready for action!

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

Love
The past can only hurt you if you allow it to. Instead, rise above the bad things that happened and allow them to let you appreciate all that is good in your surroundings now. Doing so can give you the confidence by April to accept love fully into your life again with out fear of hurt or regret. A past contact has an apology to make which helps third parties live in harmony.

Lust
Some of your sign will be keeping secrets as you enter 2016 as Mars encourages naughty behaviour. Just make sure you know your own limitations and that you’re not living life by other’s standards. They aren’t the ones who will have to deal with the consequences. July promises your most explosive words and actions yet, which could change the course of your future.

Family
Instead of being irritated as you have been with family members, try to step back and look at them from afar. Cherish the gift that each day with them brings and be grateful they’re in your life. You’d miss them if they weren’t around, as you’ll realise by the time September comes your way. New additions to the family bring gossip and intrigue.

Money
One voice is telling you to save money, the other is telling you that you deserve to splurge on yourself as life has been hard lately. Can’t you meet somewhere in the middle and build yourself a compromise? You’ll feel so much more positive if you do Pisces. Investments in property should be entered into at a slow pace and only professionals should be consulted.

Health
You start to feel better in yourself and you no longer worry about how your life looks to others. You start to take an interest in your needs and desires. I’ve been waiting for this to evolve Pisces and finally you’re here, albeit with a few momentary indiscretions which is what makes your sign so colourful to watch in the past, present and future.

Work
Many of your sign will be thinking of changing their line of work. Is this due to the fact that you don’t enjoy your work or your work has not been allowing you to enjoy it due to logistics? It may be time to relocate work for many of your sign. Slow steps lead to big changes, so look at the detail and not the overall picture please my friend.
