YOUR LUCK FORECAST, 2015-2016:
(Note: prior years follow this article.)
ALL SIGNS: In general, though I am focusing on luck, we should all be careful about investing and about starting significant new business or practical projects. Unfortunately the planet of luck, Jupiter, spends most of the year ahead in difficult aspect to Saturn, the planet of “cold reality.” On the plus side, Jupiter is “on top” in this cosmic wrestling match, so good luck will tend to win over bad. Put another way, we should succeed in our endeavours, but with a lot of struggle or perseverance. Still, be wary of backing a losing horse. If you feel despondent about a certain project, or don’t believe fully in what you’re doing, back out and look for a more favourable situation/opportunity. Sorry, folks, but that’s the way it is during this particular luck cycle – believe in your own area of luck, as outlined below for your sign, but be hard-headed, too.
LUCK FORECAST, AUGUST 2015 TO SEPTEMBER 2016:
ARIES March 21-April 19
At 4:13 am (PDT) August 11, 2015, Aries, Jupiter, your planet of great good luck, leaves your romantic and creative zone, and speeds into Virgo, your sign of work, machinery, daily health, and care of dependents (pets, kids, etc.). Doesn’t sound too exciting, but there will be benefits for the 13 months ahead (to early September, 2016) as Jupiter lights up this “work zone.” For one thing, you usually love machinery, tinkering, inventing – and this year ahead favours all that, as well as the purchase of machines, cars, computers, etc. However, due to a difficult aspect, only certain times will be successful in buying machinery. These are August 12 to September 16, 2015, and June 29 to September 10, 2016. (These are not the only times you can buy, but the only times that you can buy without a potential future disappointment.) If you are going to buy, then repair and then sell a machine, then October 10, 2015 to January 6, 2016, can give satisfying results. It’s not that the periods not mentioned are terrible, for you will succeed any time in the 13 months ahead, but that during the unmentioned periods you will have to struggle harder, against a few headwinds. Sink into thought mid-April through June: what do you really want out of life, and how can you make changes to get it?
The 13 months ahead will also bring rewards from work. More work equals a fatter pay cheque, and also puts you in line for as promotion, either a “field promotion” before September, 2016, or a more formal, prestigious one after this “work year” ends. One thing is certain: whether you want more work or not, you’ll get more. Your health will tend to improve now to Sept./16. In some cases, Aries with severe health disabilities or illness will benefit from visiting a foreign country, going to a doctor who is foreign-born, or visiting a medical school. Travel and colleges or universities (e.g., medical schools) will benefit your health. If you work in the medical field, get ready for a banner year!
You might fall in love with a co-worker. Your job might send you travelling to foreign places. Your employer might even send you to school for a while. In general, the periods mentioned above for buying machinery are also your best periods for work in general.
TAURUS April 20-May 20
The 13 months between August 11, 2015 and September 10, 2016, bring you a once-in-decade flood of luck in romance, creativity, risk-taking, beauty, pleasure, and raising/teaching children. This luck will be highest 1) when the planet of luck, Jupiter, closely “trines” your birth Sun, a stretch of a few weeks which depends on your own birth date; and 2) generally, August 12 to September 16, 2015, October 10, 2015 to January 6, 2016, and June 29 to September 10, 2016. (September/October 2015, January 2016 and May 2016 could bring an old flame back into your life.)
One usually doesn’t have to convince you to chase pleasure or to love art, and this is a splendid time for these pursuits. If single, you will ride a wave of good fortune in romance – and in sexual gratification. You could experience one of the great loves of your life. However, this love might not translate into wedding bells. Be sure you are not attracted to someone for only sexual or financial (security) reasons – and, of course, avoid married lovers. (Such triangles eventually hurt all three people.)
If you’re married, your children will bring you joy this year ahead, as they develop new talents, show new charm, and begin to make more mature decisions. This is a great time for a family “adventure” vacation, whether to Disneyland, camping, or to Europe, etc. Your interest in sports will blossom, and if you are an athlete, your winning side will show, strongly. You might ride a winning streak in gambling also, but be wary here – if you lose at first, you probably will at last, too. This is NOT a particularly good year for business, so be cautious in this zone. It is a good time for students (and writers) though – your creativity and wide-ranging knowledge can combine into an accomplishment that will make you proud!
GEMINI May 21-June 20
August 11 2015 begins a 13-month period of “slowing down.” Your security, property interests, and retirement options will blossom with luck. Your family will embrace you, and you them. Any family problems can be solved more easily now than at almost any other time. This would usually be a great time to sell and buy real estate – for example, to change homes. It is also a good time to find a better or more luxurious rental. (Pick a place where the sun shines in the windows.) However, your spouse or partner might not agree with your choice, and you could have to compromise or do some real persuading. This will go better if you try to sell a property or your home, and/or buy a new one, August 12 to September 16, 2015, October 10, 2015 to January 6, 2016, and June 29 to September 10, 2016. Avoid trying to buy or sell real estate mid-September to October 8, 2015, January 4-24, 2016 and April 27 to May 21, 2016. (To be really safe, add a few days before and after those dates.) (BTW, if you’re single, you might be attracted to, and attract, someone a bit older or younger than yourself. This person will want to be with you partly because he/she admires your accomplishments – and your domicile.)
Young married folks could celebrate a pregnancy this 13 months ahead. This is a great time to landscape your yard, spiff up your garden, renovate your home (especially to add more window space – or space, period) – but watch your budget carefully. Don’t go overboard, as debts could be very resistant to “paying them off quickly.”
One of the greatest benefits of this 13 months is the deep rest and rejuvenation it offers. Our bodies and psyches progress in cycles, and this is the sweetest and healthiest rest cycle in 13 years. This rejuvenation is important, as autumn 2016 into 2017 will bring one of the luckiest romantic, creative and pleasure periods of your life – but it won’t flower at maximum if you’re exhausted, your eyes are tired, and your brain’s weary. So take every opportunity to nap, to rest in Mother Nature’s bosom (back yard, camping trips, etc.) and to cure any small but nagging health complaints. In some ways, you are about to be reborn!
CANCER June 21-July 22
The upcoming luck cycle, August 11 2015 to September 10 2016, is not a hugely important one for you, Cancer. (That’s probably a good thing, as it’s one of the lowest or weakest luck cycles in a decade.) Mainly, you’ll find luck adds spring to your step as you travel, perform errands, deal with siblings or short-term acquaintances, communicate, do paperwork, or deal with details. It’s a very friendly year, so you might while away many hours just chatting with people. Listen to the news, and be curious. Ask questions. Throw away shyness – it doesn’t belong in these 13 months. It’s a great time to travel around your nation to explore interesting and unfamiliar places. You might visit a town or neighbourhood that you will, in late 2016 to late 2017, move to or purchase a home in. This will have the best outcome if your travels occur August 12 to September 16, 2015, October 10, 2015 to January 6, 2016, and June 29 to September 10, 2016.
This is a great time for students, lawyers, journalists, computer programmers (and all Cancers who work with their fingers) as your communication and writing skills are at a peak, and your ability to find and marshal details is also high. Make sure, though, that you don’t become too verbose, and that you don’t ignore the forest for the trees, nor ignore a significant tree while pondering the whole forest. Find a good balance between details and the big picture. (And, try not to start an important essay, legal matter or similar project mid-September to October 8, 2015, January 4-24, 2016 and April 27 to May 21, 2016.)
Take some care while travelling or exerting – protect your hips and thighs. (E.g., not a good period to run down steep slopes or bump down stairs.) If you’re un(or under)employed, your talkative, curious side will win over potential employers. You’ll be seen as friendly and eager to learn. This influence CAN lead to friendly romance from January to early March and June/July of 2016, especially with a co-worker – but it doesn’t have to. These months are also great for expressing yourself and impressing higher-ups with your creative ideas.
LEO July 23-Sept. 22
In luck terms, you began a whole new 13-year cycle over the past 54 weeks. You expanded, broke free of limiting conditions, perhaps took a whole new creative or romantic direction. August 11 begins the second “year” of this new direction. (It actually lasts 13 months, to September 10, 2016.) This new phase favours your income, earnings and possessions, your memory, your ability to learn (not concepts so much as facts and figures – rote learning) and your sensual urges. If employed, you’re very likely to earn more money, either through overtime, a promotion, or a new, better job. Try to boost yourself to a new income plateau, because this can be permanent, or a step to even higher rungs on the money ladder. For example, even a small pay raise is probably better than overtime, because the latter will fade in time. Whether employed or not, you can make money by selling unwanted items, wheeling and dealing for yourself, cultivating new clients, etc. The best times for action in all these areas are August 12 to September 16 2015, October 10 2015 to January 6 2016, and June 29 to September 10 2016. During September/October 2015, January and May 2016, you might make money from an old contact, or find a former job is available. You’ll want to spend large sums on travel, education, romance, legal affairs, publishing enterprises and similar things. Okay, but realize this is a lucky earnings year, not an investment year. Be wary of committing your savings to a business proposition.
Now, the news is not super-good. All year, practical restrictions, health limitations and other headwinds tend to “fight” your luck. (Oddly enough, these restrictions can come from romantic partners or pleasure-oriented or creative situations.) If you meet such barriers, assess them realistically – can you overcome them and still succeed? If so, good. But if you determine that the wall is just too high, be smart and change course. Be like water, go where channels, openings exist. (I know, this is hard for you – but a Leonic stubbornness could be your Achilles heel now.)
If you’re single, two “scenarios” exist: in the first one, you might remain involved with a love that began over the last year or so, or you might seek a new romantic love (perhaps at work). In either case, you’ll find things progress slowly, but if your feelings are true, they’ll progress and a deeper bond will grow. In the second scenario, you might be drawn to a sexy person who accepts you quite readily, is easy to talk to and to woo. Your intentions and urges are simply sexual, not romantic. This person will/would become a boring burden to you quite soon – a bad thing if you marry him/her! It’s better to make a little progress with the right person, than an easy conquest of the wrong person.
VIRGO Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Jupiter, the planet of expansion and great good luck, enters your sign August 11 this year, and stays there 13 months, to September 2016. The gloom, the weariness and in some cases poor luck that has blanketed you for the last 12 months, disappears. Problems that seemed insuperable will, in many cases, dissolve almost magically. It’s like undoing shoe laces – just the right tug on the right string frees your foot. Seek solutions now with a cheerful, optimistic approach. I hardly need to say this, for one thing you will be, over the year ahead, is cheerful and optimistic. This brings many benefits. People are attracted to cheerful people – so is luck. The “glass is half-full” person is much more likely to eventually fill it to the brim, than the “half-empty” sourpuss.
Some of your luck these 13 months ahead might involve, or be dependent upon, a legal, real estate, domestic, parenting, security, food-shelter or retirement situation. For example, this could be the year you finally go over that distant hill and buy the farm or woodland lot you’ve always wanted. (Actually, “distant” is the wrong word, as many of your biggest opportunities will lie very close, perhaps in your own neighbourhood or family connections.) Children will be a joy, and some Virgos will welcome a new little soul into the world. Oddly enough, a child born now will be a reflection of you – you might say an expression of you – in more ways than mere DNA.
However, be careful if investing in real estate, food-shelter businesses, etc. Realize this whole area, if you make a commitment now, will bring you a deep pleasure, but not necessarily monetary or practical success. Many headwinds or delays exist that will call for sacrifice or long, hard work, if you’re to succeed. These can be invoked in anything from child birth (sleepless nights) to agriculture (“oh no, I didn’t think I’d need THAT much equipment”) to real estate (the new home needs a major reno). These won’t surprise you: you’ll see them going in. But make sure you really SEE them. DON’T invest in anything mid-April through June, 2016. Your best times for success will be August 12 to September 16 2015, October 10 2015 to January 6 2016, and June 29 to September 10 2016. Some young marrieds will find a new basis for your mutual love.
No matter what, you’ll emerge from this year ahead feeling more hopeful, successful, outgoing and happy than you have in many years!
LIBRA Sept. 23-Oct. 22
The 13 months that begin August 11, 2015 will shift your luck from social zones to very personal, private areas. You won’t have much success in strident, competitive situations. In fact, you’ll find it rather difficult to express yourself fully and smoothly. But your spiritual, contemplative side will blossom. This is a great time to join a meditation group or other divinity-oriented circle. You could, perhaps for the first time, integrate religion and spirit. This is an excellent time to deal with civil servants, institutions and corporate head offices. Hospital stays, if needed, will benefit you – so will spas, resorts, recovery centres, etc. You can solve difficult tax problems, or obtain some dispensation if you owe taxes. Apply for government awards, auctions and aid. Artists and creators will have luck with philanthropic foundations/agencies. (This is a good time to find an agent.) If you’re seeking employment, focus on any of these groups, from government to company administration offices.
One of the prime benefits of this period is solitude and rest – from this can come valuable plans for the future. Use this time for self-examination. Old ghosts and emotional boogey men can be sent packing, for Jupiter shines a bright, healthy and optimistic light on your heart, soul and psyche. Therapy will have solid, beneficial results. Hunker down with your family, get close again. Old friends and allies will gather around you, and offer support if you need it. This is an excellent time to be charitable, volunteer, and to build up some good karma.
Research, management, delegating tasks – all flow easily now. You might be invited into closed door meetings, and could be elevated to management ranks or be placed on policy committees. The one obstacle you might experience during the 13 months ahead seems to lie in travel and communication areas – so if you do have to attend a meeting, prepare ahead of time, think over what you want to say. This is actually a pretty good cycle for “prepared speeches.” Your best times for action in any of the above zones are August 12 to September 16 2015, October 10 2015 to January 6 2016, and June 29 to September 10 2016. Be careful with partnerships in love and business from mid-April to late June. A long, long period that has touched partnerships and relationships in general with a magic wand of negativity finally ends November 12, 2015. (But if you’re single, the really good stuff comes autumn 2016 onward – be willing to wait!)
SCORPIO Oct. 23-Nov. 21
August 11 begins 13 months of increased luck in social zones, Scorpio. This is one of the best “places” to feel a surge of benevolence. Your popularity will rise, earnings or monetary dreams can come true (you might buy something you’ve always wanted). Social delights will add a celebratory note to your days. Make and accept invitations. Join groups, from walking clubs to house parties, meditation circles to political conventions. Group affiliations you initiate now to September 10, 2016, will benefit you for years to come. Aim high – associations or circles that might have rejected you before will open their doors much more readily now.
This is a splendid time to make plans for a bright future. You’ll see life as fresh, growing; you’ll be given a clean slate in many ways. Your optimism will hit a 13-year high, which gives plans an extra “come true” or “achievability” factor.
If you’re married, you and your spouse could be making plans around travel, socializing, ideal retirement venues, even education. If you’re single, no matter what your age, these zones can bring more than one romantic opportunity. You can meet a light, friendly love while travelling, in libraries, law offices, at school, or even while attending a retirement seminar. Groups of people are THE prime source for love now – the more social you are, the more likely you’ll meet someone compatible. One thing: don’t seek deep, passionate infatuation now; instead, you’ll entwine best with someone who makes you laugh, whose friends you like. This is an easy, non-embarrassing link, and yet it can lead to a happy marriage.
Some timing advice: Your best times for action in any of the above zones are August 12 to September 16, 2015, October 10, 2015 to January 6, 2016, and June 29 to September 10, 2016. Almost the entire 13 months, you might need to sacrifice a possessive attitude (or an extreme earnings focus) for love. Be careful when forming new associations/partnerships in love or business from mid-April to late June. If you’re male, this time could lead to “flagging” physical prowess; if you’re female, you might inadvertently hurt a man’s ego, and/or merge with someone whose plumbing is a little dysfunctional (or, worse, who is addicted to physical gratification).
Old flames might return in January or May.
A beautiful year, Scorpio – you’ll be happy!
SAGITTARIUS Nov. 22-Dec. 21
I hope you had a peaceful, restful year just past, Sage, because the 13 months that start this August 11 will catapult you into some role demanding work, decisions, energy and optimism. In return, you’ll collect outstanding rewards – new prestige, an enhanced reputation, favours from higher ups, even promotion(s). (Yes, the plural is possible!) Parent-child relationships will be important, and could be a source of joy, good fortune, and enhanced self-image. For example, a parent could lend you money to start a new business or to buy a home (less likely). Lawsuits are never fun (unless you’re a lawyer) but this year ahead (to September 10, 2016) you’ll tend to win, mainly because judges and other authorities will tend to give you a break, or a favourable “verdict.” Or, you might become a new parent, or find yourself herding a whole gaggle of kids – as, say, a summer camp counsellor. In any caretaker role, watch for signs of sensitivity, of dreaminess or deep but calm waters in children. Nothing wrong here, but it could indicate this child is psychic, and will benefit from serenity and nurturing.
The economy will struggle during this luck cycle, and I have advised many not to start a business. But you have a unique angle on this, and can make money where others fail. In fact, if you don’t succeed, the only thing holding you back will be yourself, and perhaps some insecurity. Still, some periods are better than others. You might find the road to the top easier August 12 to September 16, 2015, October 10, 2015 to January 6, 2016, and June 29 to September 10, 2016. Avoid seeking co-operation (and, generally, starting any enterprise) mid-September to October 8, 2015, January 1 – 25 and April 27 to May 21, 2016. Don’t get too creative, be too assertive or quick-tempered, or chase romance mid-April through June (unless you’re single and an old flame returns – judge this now as it was then.)
CAPRICORN Dec. 22-Jan. 19
From August 11, 2015 to September 10, 2016, Cap, most of your luck will reside in the areas of far travel, international affairs, higher learning, science, intellectual pursuits, law, publishing and advertising, religion, philosophy, cultural venues and social rituals, and love. You’ll see further, understand more, and your compassion will deepen. (Understanding always breeds compassion.) Foreign-born people will gravitate to you, and aid you. For example, if you’re at school, a prof born in another country will tend to teach you more or give you better marks, than a prof born in your own nation. Usually, your luck is tied to some sort of burden: for you, luck equals responsibility. (This is why so many Caps are company CEO’s, presidents of their club, etc.) Yet, oddly, being too responsible during these 13 months can hold you back and prevent success. You can also slow your progress by sinking too deeply into governmental or institutional affairs, management roles. Try to skirt civil servants and/or your company’s administrative ranks.
Libraries, law offices, transportation hubs and foreign countries will trigger something lucky. If you want to upgrade your status, or move to a higher pay grade, this is an excellent time to attend classes or even seek a formal degree in your field. New, young students should have a banner year. To succeed most (in any area) combine equal portions of detail and “big picture.” You could meet very compatible people or refreshing new friends – even love – at cultural affairs or social ritual gatherings such as weddings, foreign film fests, etc.
A nice, mellow mood will steal over you. If single, you could fall in love in a broad-based, uplifting way with someone who could make a very understanding, loyal and loving mate. (“Broad-based” = a love that has many supports, for it is romantic, physical and intellectual, and society or your family/friends tend to support you as a couple.) Here, too, travel, schools, law offices, libraries, and cultural venues tend to be rich hunting grounds.
You’ll succeed best – or, seen another way, your strong sense of duty and/or insecurity will be least “interfering” – August 12 to September 16, 2015, October 10, 2015 to January 6, 2016, and June 29 to September 10, 2016. You might become entangled in a real estate or domestic quagmire April through June, 2016. Sidestep these two areas. DON’T start a new business January to June. (In general, wait until October 2016 onward to exercise your ambition.)
AQUARIUS Jan. 20-Feb. 18
This August to September 2016 could change your life. It will be a bit of a tricky year, Aquarius, even though you will meet tremendous luck in finances, investments, debt reduction, intimacy and physical gratification, research and investigation, occult matters, health diagnoses, lifestyle changes/choices, commitment and consequences. The complexity comes because the planet of practicality, of business cycles, and of “cold reality” fights your luck in all those zones I just listed. You will tend to succeed anyway, but you might have to struggle through some challenges or headwinds. Oddly, the main headwind consists in your own view of the future, in your optimism and in your social urges/needs. Not that these are overwhelming now, in fact they are a little low and restricted (for example your popularity might click down a notch until 2018). But the very fact that they’re low might spur you to focus on them, and this will curtail success in those financial, intimate and research areas I listed above. These blossom best in privacy, or when your mood is turned inward. Your best times for success are August 12 to September 16, 2015, October 10, 2015 to January 6, 2016, and June 29 to September 10, 2016. Your intuition will deepen this whole 13 months, so listen to it, to that quiet little nudge inside – it will help you time meetings, approaches and actions.
Lust is strong, but if you want true romance, you’d better wait until September 2016 onward. Still, lust has its place, especially for married couples. You could become pregnant, or “give birth” in a different way – to a whole new philosophical system, to an invention or discovery. This will be a banner year for researchers, detectives, accountants, estate planners, investment advisors, psychologists and psychiatrists, and agents or therapists of all kinds. However, if you’re a student, don’t change your major into these fields unless you’ve had them as a life goal. (Next year will bring better subjects/fields.)
Be careful September 16 to Oct. 8, 2015, the first 24 days of January 2016, and late April to May 21, 2016 – these are poor periods to dive into a new investment or love situation, though they can bring excellent results in research.
PISCES Feb. 19-March 20
The next 13 months (August 11/15 to September 10/16) will bring you some of the best opportunities in a decade. There are likely to be at least two opportunities, perhaps four. These are opportunities to relocate, to divorce or marry, to deal with the public, to snag fame’s fleeting flag, to negotiate or form lucrative contracts, to form business or social partnerships and associations. The world is new and fresh, bright and filled with sudden potential!
Two things to remember: 1) All your luck this year ahead will come from others, from your connections and your ability to promote another’s desires and goals (for really, they’re the lucky ones, but you can jump on their band wagon). And 2) there can be some barriers to success which you will have to face and overcome. (Here, too, you will need others – a partner, for example, will be able to help you move a rock that’s too big or heavy for you alone.) Opposition to your goals (more accurately disapproval) can come from parents, VIPs, bosses, even judges and other authorities. For example, you might want to marry Georgina, and you feel in your bones that this is a bountiful, true love, but your parents say she’s not their type, not from their side of the tracks. Who can help you overcome your parents’ objections? Georgina herself! Once they get to know her, they’ll eventually “succumb” to her charms, intelligence and optimism.
Your best times for success are August 12 to September 16, 2015, October 10, 2015 to January 6, 2016, and June 29 to September 10, 2016. Don’t start new relationships or projects September 16 to Oct. 8, 2015, the first 24 days of January 2016, and late April to May 21, 2016. Others might at times drive you crazy with their focus on details. You like to dream and act on intuition and feelings: but it is these “detail demons” who are luckiest for you – embrace them!
YOUR LUCK FORECAST, 2014-2015:
TIMING RESTRICTIONS: ALL SIGNS: between now and Dec. 23, and again mid-June to August, 2015, this luck will have to overcome a practical barrier or restriction. So, your luck will be “most pure” Dec. 23/14 to mid-June/15.
I base these luck forecasts on Jupiter’s position for the 12 1/2 months that it stays in a sign. But Jupiter, and its luck, is not a cure-all nor can it defeat other, stronger aspects. Last year (pre-August 2014) for example, Jupiter was in Cancer, promising a bright, optimistic, fortunate year of progress, especially on job fronts.
However, for almost 8 months Mars was squaring (a bad aspect) the sign Cancer, causing friction in this native’s home life. All YEAR, Pluto has been opposing Cancer, causing struggles and alienation in relationships, and Uranus has squared Cancer from the career and status house, causing abrupt changes and challenges in career. Altogether, these aspects carry enough weight to wipe out two Jupiter-filled buckets of luck! (Cancers can look forward to some beautiful, mood-lifting money fortune from July 2014 to August 2015!)
Just wanted to point out that luck isn’t everything – hard work, caution, and the courage to leap are just as strong. Please keep this in mind as you read your own sign’s Luck Forecast.
I cannot keep mentioning all the if’s and but’s to this period of luck – if I did, I might as well write a book. But you can get some indication of what you might face on the “larger than luck” side of life by reading my articles on Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, under PLATFORMS.
NOTE: Many people have asked if I’m going to continue my karmic forecasts. No, I’m not. Too much work. But I am 1) referring to your karmic (i.e., lunar nodes) outlook when I write the weekly forecasts, and 2) from now on, I will be incorporating your karmic forecast with your luck forecast. They are not the same thing (karma is stronger and subtler than luck) but for most purposes, in a practical or worldly life, they bring similar results.
Here goes, then:
Aries, from July 16, 2014 to August 12, 2015, Jupiter, planet of great good fortune, travels through your fifth sector, bringing fresh new life and buoyancy – and plain good luck – to your romantic, creative, speculative (yes, gambling, games and sports also) risk-taking, self-expressive, and pleasure pursuits. Beauty, charming children, teaching abilities, nature’s poetry – these visit you also. Overlapping this time (now to November 2015) your marriage (and business partnership) area is blessed with good karma. Even without Jupiter’s help, you would gain from approaching others (and lose from staying independent). In addition, Jupiter for you rules international travel, legal affairs, social rituals such as weddings, love (of a marriageable type) and intellectual success. So, put together concisely, this year ahead can bring romance (Jupiter) with a good person (karmic good node in the marriage sector) and lead to a wedding (Jupiter rules weddings). Or, this interval can bring love and relocation, or travel to find love, or a business partnership that turns to love (or to profit).
Your best success in any of these areas will come between Christmas Eve 2014 and June 14 2015. Before and after this, love, grand travel – everything mentioned above – can come and thrive, but it might either be 1) financially disappointing; or 2) lower your worldly standing somehow; or 3) encounter a sexual or deep emotional barrier or “scar.” For example, in 2) you might be a princess and fall in love with a carpenter. (To use an innocent example.) Even during these less favoured times, Jupiter’s luck will still tend to outweigh or “overrule” Saturn’s dour lack of co-operation. (Saturn causes those 1), 2) and 3) potential difficulties listed above.)
TAURUS LUCK FORECAST:
From mid-July 2014 to August 12, 2015, Taurus, your real estate, family, security, food, garden and “soul” interests enter very fortunate territory. However, from this July through December, and again mid-June to August 2015, relationship, practical, social, ethical/legal, international, intellectual or “philosophical” elements can sully your success. For example, you might buy a house, your dream house, and be happy with it for decades, but find it is a money pit, or keeps you tied down, unable to travel afar; or, even, that it is NOT your mate’s dream home. (If you’re single, a home purchased before late December or after mid-June can even “get in the way of” finding a sweet, desired mate.) So act on this great luck during the sweet spot of Christmas Eve to June 14, 2015. Even outside this sweet spot, things should subtly and gratifyingly improve in this zone without you pursuing it. E.g., your property taxes might be lowered, or the city decides to build a park next to your lot.
This is also a great year ahead (with the same 2014 versus 2015 cautions) to heal family wounds, to grow closer to your kids – and parents. A family vacation (camping?) would turn out beautifully. It’s a great time to ensure your children’s future, through educational plans, or a move to a better neighbourhood. A good time for renovations or pregnancy or building a spare bedroom, for starting a retirement savings plan, or actually retiring. In some cases, losing or quitting your job can be a blessing in disguise, as it frees you to find the perfect spot on earth to set down roots and grow a new, profitable (after December!) life.
During this entire “year,” avoid withdrawal – being with family is one thing, withdrawing from the world is another. The best antidote, if you feel withdrawal temptations, is work. Tackle that repair. Build those new porch stairs – these will insert you into the rhythm of life and satisfying people-connections again.
From July 16 2014 to August 11, 2015, Gemini, your main source of luck will reside in communications, travel, variety, curiosity, media, casual contacts, siblings, paperwork, tools and details. Aspiring reporters might get that first real job (or real billing) now. Your contacts/visits with siblings and friends expand. This is a perfect year to express yourself, to write, to acquire a new computer (new software, too) or telephone system. It’s a great time to buy new tools, even a new car. Hop on that train, plane or bus, travel across your country, visit relatives. It’s an active year, Gemini, and you’ll be in your element, displaying your best skills.
One warning: from July 16 to Dec. 23 2014, and again June 15 to Aug. 11 2015, the planet Jupiter, which brings luck and optimism, will be “in square” – that is, in conflict – with Saturn, the ruler of restriction, politics and practical matters. Your luck will be most unfettered from Dec. 24/14 to June 14/15. During those “square” periods, you luck will still win over restrictions and practical necessity, but the fight to win will lleave it weaker than during that unfettered first half of 2015.
Be careful in January. Since 2011, and lasting to March 2019, your social sector (friends, groups, light romance, entertainment, hopes for the future, wish fulfillment, popularity, joy of life) receives an extra boost, of alertness, understanding, good fellow-feeling, and intelligence. (Yes, you have become a more intelligent friend – or rather, more intelligent about friendship.) But from late February 2014 to November 2015, the lunar south node (bad karma) affects this zone, bringing, for example, delays in social affairs, tempting wishes that are too unrealistic to come true, flirtations that don’t “pan out,” etc. In essence, your karma now to Nov. 2015 advises you to seek and pursue deep, heavy, meaningful romance, even infatuation, rather than play the field. Similarly, private creative sessions, speculating on your own intuition, pursuing beauty and “poetic pleasures” are better than “creation by committee,” group investment clubs, clubs and groups in general. Rather than wish, create. Seek love away from a group of friends, not within it.
CANCER LUCK FORECAST:
From July 16, 2014 to August 11, 2015, Cancer, the planet of great good fortune travels through your sector of possessions, memory/learning, sensuality, and earnings. This is a “year” in which you can make far more money than usual. Some will do it by selling a property, some by employment, but whatever your method or circumstance, try to make any rise in income permanent rather than a one-timer. For example, ask for a permanent pay raise rather than a bonus or overtime. One money event can enrich your life for over as decade, maybe longer. For instance, you might buy a home or other expensive items (art, antiques?) that will grow in value over the years. In the stock market, buy dividend stocks. If starting a business, make it a cash-flow business (rather than a gamble on growth). (But be sure to note the “phases” below.)
You can also experience more physical gratification than usual, whether you’re married or single. However, other than the period to December 3/14, and mid-June to mid-September 2015, this is not the best time to find a mate or fall in love forever. (Love will be much better – personality-wise – from August 2015 to September 2016. That said, you are in one of the great love/marriage periods of your life, from 2009 to 2025, so even during periods that are not particularly favourable, anything can happen.)
Your luck will go through three stages. During the first, July 16/14 to Dec. 22/14, practical realities can hinder your luck, especially in money zones. (Though, as mentioned, this phase can bring a future mate.) During the second stage, late December to June 15/15, all systems are go – charge ahead to increase your bank account, buy that luxury, investment or work-related item, soak up sensuality. Impediments have turned into stepping-stones (or have simply dissolved).
In the third phase, mid-June to August 11/15, be most cautious: you can still make more money than usual, but impediments have grown into real barriers. Don’t be a huge gambler on the stock markets, and don’t buy machinery or articles related to work – especially avoid status symbols. DO NOT start a new business nor a project so large it could transform your company, in the first or third phase. A business you start in the middle phase could bring you more income than you expect over the years ahead.
LEO LUCK FORECAST:
Leo, the period from July 16, 2014 to August 11, 2015 will be one of the luckiest years of your life. This won’t be money luck, nor real estate nor career luck – but none of these will really suffer, since you’re “lucky all over.” You’ll be filled with optimism, happy, outgoing, cheerful and friendly – and this in turn will bring even more luck. (Leos who hunker down and frown at the world will receive little luck.) You’ll attract others easily, and a major loved could await you.
You might set off on an adventure, launching yourself into world travel, higher learning, or philosophical realms. You’ll tend to be lucky in these, and in law, advertising, publishing and cultural venues. However, in all these, from world travel to culture, realize that a pitfall might also exist, especially in “phase one” or “phase three.” (They’re explained below.) So although you feel lucky in, say, a lawsuit, it’s quite possible that you are feeling creative and impulsive about it, rather than realistically examining the legal terrain that lies ahead. So, overall, I would not chase these zones: if they do come to you unbidden (e.g., a friend overseas says “come!” and buys you a ticket) then they are probably lucky.
This “year” will, more than anything, bring you superb openings and developments in romance, creativity, speculation, sports and games. If you’re a teacher, this is a joyous year. If you’re single, this year is one of the best in a decade to find love. (So will be Nov. 2018 to Nov. 2019.) Be bold, express yourself and your talents – be a Leo! If you’ve felt held back or “imprisoned by circumstance” in the past (especially 2012-2014) this is your time to break free.
Your luck will progress through 3 phases. The first, from July 2014 to December 22/14, can erect small impediments or barriers to your lucky goals, or demand a sacrifice. For example, you fall in love, and it’s reciprocated, but your amour has three children. Or, you’re affluent and he/she’s poor (or vice-versa).These barriers – all of them practical – remain small, but they might be precursors of larger difficulties later (in Phase Three).
During the second phase, late December/14 to June 15, 2015, these practical barriers don’t exist – so make as much progress, throw your arms as wide, chase as much, as possible. Find love, express yourself, surprise the world!
During the third phase, from mid-June to August 11, 2015, those practical barriers of Phase One (probably connected to a domestic situation) now loom large. You can still get around them, or suffer them for a shining goal, but it will be harder.
Don’t start a business, especially a creative or speculative one, or one that demands a realty premise (e.g., a studio, office, movie theatre, restaurant) during the first or third phase. If a love affair starts during the first phase, it might well be worth any minor sacrifices. But if it starts during the third phase, life’s burdens might eventually wear love down, or out. During the middle phase, Dec./14 to June/15, a love that starts could soar forever!
VIRGO LUCK FORECAST:
Virgo, from July 16 2014 to early August 2015, Jupiter, the planet of expansion and great good luck, travels through your sector of warehousing, assembly lines, institutions, government and large corporations. As Jupiter is also your home and real estate planet, you could find that your dream of finding/buying a home (or a good rental or a vacation retreat) is attainable now. In addition, a government program, a deal with an institution or large corporation, can help you buy that piece of land. (So canvas the real estate departments of governments or large companies – e.g., look for waterfront held by a tug boat or barge company.) But this is a superb time to seek security in any form – make your kids more comfortable, add to their education fund, buy new furniture, seek therapy to dissolve family troubles or your own private ghosts. The depths, the mysteries of life now appear harmless to you; ghosts have no more “scary element.” This is also a good time to invest in warehousing, assembly lines, medical stocks, and retirement homes.
This “year” (July/14 to Aug./15) is excellent for contemplation, research and planning, for meditation, yoga, and expansion of any spiritual pursuit. Dreams and sleep are touched with a magic wand – insomnia disappears. Jupiter’s tendency to expand things can also increase contacts with the government and cause you more work. If you haven’t filed your taxes, they could come due in a big, enlarged version. Make plans for late 2015 and the first 9 months of 2016 – that’s when your personal luck will soar.
There are three phases to your luck this year: July 16 to December 23, 2014, puts some knee-high barriers to your goals and luck. See these (they’re related to romance or practical circumstances) and leap over them – or accept the small sacrifice they ask for. The second phases, late Dec. to June 15, 2015, holds no barriers – charge ahead! (But realize the entire “year” of luck withholds “outside” luck, so work within the sectors outlined above.) The third phase, June 16 to August 11, 2015, erects tall, serious barriers to this luck. (For example, say you want to buy a home. In Phase One, the bank might make you accept a slightly higher interest rate, or burden you with lots of paperwork and proof of income. In Phase Two, you can simply walk into your new home, everyone co-operates. In Phase three, the bank might refuse you, or you have to buy a place across the lane from a nightclub… time your actions! Don’t buy or start a business in Phases One or Three.
LIBRA LUCK FORECAST:
Libra, expect your popularity to soar, July 16/14 to August 11/15. Jupiter will bring a wave of friends, light romance, flirtations, social events, entertainment and group affairs – clubs, politics, business or professional conventions, etc. You could meet a significant member of the opposite sex in a group setting – that’s good, and a memorable love affair could start. Just remember that until November 2015, you are in a difficult period to marry – some glitch or holdback can ultimately not be overcome. So have fun, but keep your finger off the commitment button.
Your popularity gives you a unique sense of public desires and of what will be popular: you can pick the movies or I-tunes that will be hits. If you’ve been contemplating changing careers or entering a new business field, the present luck cycle will give you a boost if you choose anything involving the public: entertainment, booking acts, decorating, public relations, selling art, fashion or chocolates or anything delicious.
Join at least one club or special group this year: your membership will boost your confidence and your prospects, and could trigger benefits for more than a decade.
This period fills the sails of your expectations and wishes. A major wish could come true, especially if it involves travel, media appearances, or communication. Look toward the future with hope and expectation – these often create reward all on their own!
There are three phases to your luck this year: July 16 to December 23, 2014, erects some minor barriers to your goals and luck. (Barriers are probably connected to your income or your home, family, real estate, security needs. E.gg., you’re invited to a party, but your three school kids have no one to watch them.) Sometimes, these barriers will demand a small sacrifice – a fee for your good luck. Pay it gladly in this first phase.
The second phase, late Dec. to June 15, 2015, holds no barriers – charge ahead! Accept and extend invitations – don’t be shy! The third phase, June 16 to August 11, 2015, erects tall, serious barriers to this social luck. Again, the barriers probably involve home, security or money. They could be large, but you can still overcome them. But why fight them? Make your start in Phase One, or better, in Phase Two…. time your actions! Don’t buy or start a business in Phases One or Three.
SCORPIO LUCK FORECAST:
Scorpio, July 16/14 to August 11/15 brings a shining light – and a lucrative one – to your career, prestige, reputation and status concerns. Even retired Scorpios will feel this boost. If not working, you might still be elected Treasurer of your bridge club, or Secretary of the Order of the Red Pooh-bah. At all times during these 13 months, focus on advancement. Study the hierarchy at work, cultivate bosses and mentors. If you’re in the arts, contact agents and VIPs. Since higher-ups favour you so readily and spontaneously this year, someone will respond! If you’re looking for work or molding your career, aim toward positions that promise the most income – these will, sooner or later, be good platforms for increased status also.
You might find more opportunities, not only during this “year” but in some respects all the way to autumn 2016, in such areas as publishing, media, academia, law, international travel, import-export, and such fields. Its not that you’re a particularly good writer, traveller or importer, but you have a knack for controlling or managing such people. For example, yours is the sign of editing. Scorpios are excellent at using or handling other people’s resources. If you’re young and entering college/university, focus your majors on detective work, medicine, psychiatry (or psychiatric nurse) stock brokering, accounting, therapy – any field in which you try to diagnose other people’s problems, then cure them.
I’ve told all other signs about the three “Phases” of luck from July 2014 to August 2015. However, in your case these barriers hardly exist, or are minimal. That said, you should NOT start a new business (or big business project) July 16 to December 22, 2014, and June 15 to August 11, 2015. (The latter period is the worst.) Paradoxically, the middle period, unencumbered with practical barriers (late Dec. 2014 to mid-June 2015) is least likely to yield big income rewards, now and in future. Yet it is the best Phase to start a business. The first and last Phase are best for approaching higher-ups. These can include your parents – and a judge if you’re in a lawsuit. If so, you are likely to win July/14 to Aug. 2015. People with first names starting with F, W, J, U or Q are likely to be beneficial allies.
One caution: this lucky year favours your career, not your hands-on work – beware burying yourself in your work, and missing promotion or schmoozing or information opportunities that could boost you much more swiftly than slogging away at a lumpen pile of chores.
Sage, July 2014 to August 11, 2015 brings providence, wisdom, and a broader understanding of life – these are things you seek naturally anyway, so this should be a banner year. Almost everything you love (except perhaps money) will be brushed with the wand of good fortune this “year.” You can win lawsuits – or end them – or sign contracts that ensure a future profit. This is a hugely beneficial year to attend university or college (or teach in them) travel internationally, join a religion or form a life philosophy, write, broadcast, publish, seek fame, wed, or link with other cultures and minds. (These can also be launch pads for fortunate businesses, but see below.)
Your luck will come in three phases: One, July 16 to Dec. 22/14, contains small barriers to your goals – most of them financial. For example, you want to travel through Europe, but your bank account’s a little low, or you lost your job. (PS: a new, better one comes August 2015 onward.) These barriers are fairly easy to overcome: for instance, you can always back-pack and hitch-hike through the countries you want to see. Phase Two contains no barriers – so charge ahead! During Phase Three, from June 15 to August 11, 2015, the barriers are high and strong – respect them. This time, you really might not have enough money, or another roadblock occurs. Remember this: you can overcome almost any barrier this year. DON’T start a business in Phase One or Three – only the Dec. 22/14 to June 15/15 period is safe and growth-oriented for new businesses.
Love is a different matter. This period, July 2014 to August 2015, can bring gentle, wise love, and can move many single Sages toward the altar. (Similarly, unhappy married Sages seem to move now toward divorce court. Remember, you tend to win lawsuits this 13-month year.) It’s not love we need to worry about, but its forms. Light, friendly, flirty romance – or romance between “thinkers,” a meeting of minds, shared intellectual or travel interests – these are best now, and can form the basis of a good marriage. But steer clear of deep, heavy romance, infatuation…the kind in which your heart pounds, you put him/her on a pedestal, etc. – this heavy romantic link, if formed between late February 2014 and November 2015 (past the present lucky year) is a doorway to difficulties, not only in love. Keep it light! (This is also not a good “year” for creative projects or gambling.)
Cap, from July 16, 2014 to early August 2015 the planet of great good fortune, Jupiter, will boost areas that you always feel hopeful about, areas that often yield good luck for you even without the presence of this lucky planet. (When I wrote “good fortune,” it typo’d as “god fortune” – which is a reminder, I guess.)
Your lucky zones during these 13 months will be connected to change in some significant form. For example, these are truly lucky in this year ahead: sex, intimacy, pregnancy and/or birth, investments, debt and mortgage, lifestyle changes, health diagnosis, research, detective work, occultism, sleep and dreams. Many of these – pregnancy, birth, a mortgage (debt) to buy a new home, surgery or other health action – obviously change our lives. Be judicious and realistic in all these, rather than biting off more than you can chew – for example, the banks will let you load up, but don’t contract more debt than you can pay back.
This lucky year will have three phases:
In the first phase, from July 16, 2014 to December 22/14, your luck will tend to run counter to larger practical realities, or to your cherished dreams of the future, or to your social group. (“Larger practical realities” – e.g., you invest in stocks as the market declines, usually a terrible idea. But as your luck “rules” now, you might pick the very stock that rises against the tide. Still, be a little cautious.)
The second phase, from late December 2014 to mid-June 2015, your luck in these areas – sex, investments, et al – will be “pure” – a simple green light says charge forth. You could double your net worth, discover a world-changing fact or method, solve a personal ghost and banish it forever, start a very fortunate business, etc.
The third phase in this luck cycle, from June 23/15 to August 11/15, needs the most caution. It will be similar to the first phase, in which your luck tends to run counter to practical realities, or against what you think you want. But this time the conflict between the two, your personal luck versus the world’s realities, might lead to a show-down, especially in August. You could put yourself in an all-or-nothing situation. Since, again, your luck tends to “rule,” chances are you’ll emerge unscathed – but this isn’t guaranteed. DO NOT start a new business in phase One or Three.
All that said, these 12-13 months will bring a good change in your overall life, and in your net worth. You are presently in a life-transforming era, 2009 to 2025, one that will change your social circle and your life goals. The present luck cycle will provide the deep, financial, sexual and “occult” or subconscious phase of this transformation.
One thing: great good luck, for you, almost always creates more responsibilities and duties. So if you find your responsibilities increasing, your luck is likely increasing also. There’s an exception: love. Love can exist without extra burdens for you. This year and next, love is likely to be a sweet puzzle, especially if you “hooked up” between Nov. 2013 to Feb. 2014.
During this mid-2014 to August 2015 luck cycle, if you’re unsure whether to take a certain step, look at it through the lens of love: this can give the best answer.
Love aside, if investing, deciding to give birth, changing your lifestyle, etc., don’t be impulsive, but don’t act if you feel indecisive. Proceed when you’re calm – that indicates your subconscious is in agreement with what you’re doing, and your subconscious, especially these 13 months, knows what’s best.
AQUARIUS LUCK FORECAST:
All your best luck from July 2014 to August 2015 will come from other people, Aquarius. So the more “other oriented” you are, the more diplomatic, friendly, the more a “people person,” the more you’ll succeed.
Many single Aquarians will marry – or meet The One – in this 13 months. If you’re married and unhappy, separation and divorce are a strong possibility. (Separation could come now, divorce in Sept. 2016 to Oct. 2017, depending on the laws of your locality.) If you’re happily married, your mate will grow more and more lively, cheerful and optimistic – and lucky. Let him or her take you on a world cruise or to the theme park, to a lecture or a party. Follow his/her lead – it might lead to riches! (By mid-2015 to mid-2016.)
In everything, go out from yourself to others. This is a superb period to relocate, even – especially – to another country or culture. (E.g., in Canada, Quebec is another culture.) Good fortune will tend to arrive if you negotiate, seek agreements, sign contracts, and deal with the public. Fame is possible! Partnerships in business, contests, far travel with a friend, are favoured. Seek and grab opportunities and fresh horizons. Leave stale security behind. Any partner you pursue now, in business or love, will tend to be forthright, honest and cheerful (and perhaps a bit pompous, in a naive way). For these 13 months, you can trust people – or at least, trust what they say and how they act – both allies and enemies will be open and honest.
The planet responsible for all this is Jupiter. Jupiter’s influence is generally lucky and freeing, but it can also, simply, expand what is. So if you’re at war, Jupiter can expand it into a huge, devastating conflagration. If you’re in a lawsuit, these months can expand it to new realms and swollen legal fees. You might get into a shouting match with someone (especially someone who attracts and frustrates you). You’ll realize, afterward, that he/she didn’t fight dirty, and spoke honestly. But in general, relationships during these 13 months are the most direct route to making some major wish come true.
I mentioned “opportunities” above – the most likely among these are relationship “opps” (marriage, love, business partnerships, etc.) as well as a chance to dive into higher education, publishing, law (not litigation), far travel, import/export or any international dealings, religion, philosophy, advertising, statistics, insurance, science…
This lucky, opportunistic year will arrive in three phases:
During the first phase, from July 16/14 to Dec. 22/14, some practical realities or restrictions can interfere with your opportunities. For example, you’re sixteen and your life mate walks in the door, and your crabby father throws him out. In many cases, a bit of diplomacy, alertness (i.e., knowing what the restriction is) and planning will help you over any humps or barriers. (E.g., tell your crabby dad you’re just friends – for now.) Even if you ignore this advice, the luck might be (often will be) strong enough to overcome obstacles. Still, a bit of caution – or awareness – is valuable.
The second phase, from Dec. 23/14 to June 14, 2015, is purely lucky – charge ahead! (Well, be eager and diplomatic. The fine thing about this whole luck cycle is that you’ll be dealing with someone who loves attention and praise. This is the type of person who, if you show you’re attracted, will tend to be attracted in turn. Your love creates their love.)
The third phase, June 15/15 to August 11/15, is similar to Phase One – but more so. In the first phase those restrictions and practical “realities” were only a hint, a whisper, a possible seed of future difficulty. In Phase Three these restrictions and practicalities loom large – and a real battle can occur between chasing an opportunity, versus acting in the way powerful people (parents, bosses, VIPs, judges, police, professional societies, etc.) want you to act. These people, since late 2012, have wanted you to perform with decorum, with a certain stiff attention to duties and job, with a quiet, even dour attitude – the exact opposite, these 13 months, to the attitude that will bring good fortune. Be careful, Aquarius, but don’t reject or “let go” a possibly life-transforming (and fortunate!) opportunity just to please a too-serious person – including an authority figure. (Of course, do follow the law.)
PISCES’ LUCK FORECAST:
PISCES, July 16, 2014 to August 11, 2015 , brings you luck in work, health, service trades, and with dependents, tools and machinery. This is a great time to increase your earnings via longer hours, to collect overtime pay or “moonlight.” However, you’d be wiser to aim for a permanent pay raise than overtime, as the former will yield benefits over the years to come. New employment beginnings are luckily emphasized, so don’t be afraid to leave a dead-end job for something more promising. (You’ll have to leave on your own, as it’s very unlikely any employer will lay you off during these 13 months. But if you are laid off, consider it a blessing in disguise, freeing you for a better position.) Now is the time to look for employment that truly reflects (or promises to lead to) your most ambitious career aspirations. (You often succeed well, but are not limited to, careers in health, nursing, social work, high finance [especially if interest rates are involved] detective work, warehousing, psychic areas, the civil service, gas and oil, management and bureaucracy, assembly lines, film, fashion and color.) 2015 might boost you onto an employment plateau that lasts for over a decade!
Home repairs and do-it-yourself projects will draw you. Parents face a splendid time to set up children’s health, future schooling, etc.
This is a splendid time to buy machinery or tools of any kind, from pencils to excavators. With a little digging, you’ll find some spectacular bargains. But buy important machinery in Phase Two, not One or Three (see “Timing” below).
One warning: Jupiter, the planet bringing you all this luck, is not always lucky. It can sometimes merely mean “expansion” – so guard your health now to August 2015, as any ailments might grow quickly. (Most vulnerable: heart, lower back, digestive system, kidneys/liver, bladder and blood quality – and feet.)
TIMING: During the first phase of this luck cycle, from July 16/14 to Dec. 22/14, your friends or “established wisdom” (e.g., a book, or teacher, or a lawyer/lawsuit) might conflict with the practical success you’re chasing. For example, your friends want to party when you sense that performing your work instead (or at least being present at work) could lead to rewards. Or a respected teacher might say your job’s “beneath you.” It will be beneath you, literally, if you do it enthusiastically and are promoted! Still, a bit of caution, or awareness, will help you over any humps or barriers. Do listen to whatever bosses, higher-ups, community leaders or judges/authorities tell you – their advice (and the advice of a Libran) might be invaluable. Even if you ignore advice, your work/health luck will tend to be strong enough to overcome obstacles.
The second phase, from Dec. 23/14 to June 14, 2015, is purely lucky – charge ahead! Seek a new job or show off your skills at your present one. Work extra hours. Ask for a promotion and/or a pay raise. (These might not come immediately, but you’re depositing valuable currency in your promotion account.) Buy machinery. Hire employees and service people. Chase down a health situation until you’ve solved it.
The third phase, June 15/15 to August 11/15, is similar to Phase One – but more so. It brings the essential conflict of Phase One (negative partying versus positive work, formal/book learning versus immediate accomplishment) to a climax. Again, your innate luck these 13 months might “overrule” the holdbacks or barriers, but be aware, careful. DO NOT start a new business or business expansion during Phases One or Three.
