2010 Astrology Forecasts for the Signs

Astrological Predictions for 2010

Aries
Themes: Relationships, romance, friends, career and work
This year there will be a great focus on your relationships – both personal and business. With Saturn in Libra for most of the year, you will be looking at the relationships in your life and redefining them. You will be asking yourself questions like: “does this relationship satisfy my needs?” “am I the one giving all the time?” “Is the balance of our relationship equitable?” “What needs to change?” You may start to notice what is missing in your relationships and there will be some of you who will end a major relationship over the next year or so. If your relationships are not solid, you will need to strengthen them or let them go. You will find that the people in your life will test you to the limit and will make demands on you. It is important that you keep your agreements with other people during this time. For those relationships that survive this transit of Saturn, they will come out better than ever. So if you do have to go through the pain of a separation, just remember that you are making the way for something new and more nourishing.

Saturn briefly retrogrades into Virgo between April and July, so this is a time when you could find that you need to take care of a health issue or that a work situation comes to an end. There will be some completions taking place in your work.

Jupiter, the planet of good fortune is in your twelfth house between January and June and again from September to the end of the year. This emphasises the spiritual side of you and many Aries will delve into metaphysics, philosophy and occult studies during this time. You may have a spiritual teacher or an old friend who acts like a mentor to you. There may be a feeling that something inside of you needs healing and by delving into the mystical and the unseen you will find some new answers.

Between June and September, Jupiter goes into your sign, Aries. This will be a time of immense growth for you where you begin to discover who you are as an individual. It is a great time to learn something new, to embark on a new course of study and to grab any opportunities that come to you with open arms. You will feel in an expansionary mood and you will draw to you some new and exciting experiences. Jupiter comes again into Aries at the beginning of 2011 – so there will be goodies coming next year too!

Uranus is in your twelfth house between January and May and from August until the end of the year. This is a time when you need to look at your inner self – what motivates you, what drives you into action? Aries is known for taking action – but you need to think more about your actions and how you can make them more productive for you and for those around you. Uranus goes briefly into your sign, Aries between June and August in 2010 and again in 2011. This will force you to redefine your relationship with the outside world, to free yourself of old limitations. A close relationship that has restricted you may end, but a relationship that allows you to be yourself will be changed and not destroyed. There will be an even bigger drive for freedom within you. This transit can be upsetting rather than invigorating – so it’s important to ask yourself – what am I holding onto that is limiting me?

Mars is in your fifth house of creativity for the first six months of the year. This is a great time to make a hobby into your work, to start a new business, to make sure that you take time out to enjoy yourself.

Neptune in your eleventh house means that you need to be careful with the people you choose as friends. Make sure they don’t take advantage of you and don’t become a martyr. Make sure you help people who are worth helping and don’t waste your energy on people who don’t appreciate you.

With Pluto in your tenth house, you will strive to achieve more than you ever have. You want to make your mark on the world. Pluto gives you the power to achieve your life goals. For those of you who are unsure about your purpose in life, don’t get discouraged – this is a very long transit – over ten years, so take the time to find the right course. Don’t allow yourself to be rushed.

Overall this will be a year of finding yourself, freeing yourself of people and things that have held you back and restructuring your relationships so that you feel valued and able to move forward with confidence.

Taurus
Themes: work, health, dreams and wishes, friends, learning
With Saturn in your sixth house for much of the year, this is a critical time in your development. During 2010 it is vital that you put everything into order in your life. This will be a time of heavy responsibility and hard work, but in the long run this will pay off very well for you. You need to conserve your energies during this period and not scatter yourself. This is the house of health and you do need to take care of your health at this time. Make sure that you get all the vitamins and minerals you need and also regular exercise. Fresh air and nature suits Taurus – so take time out to enjoy some peaceful walks or rides into the countryside or seaside. You may find that your work situation becomes more restricted, or that your finances are limited. However, if a particular job comes to an end, remember that this will be making the way for something new for you. I realise that Taureans don’t much like change, but it is likely that there will be changes in your work in the coming year.

Between April and July, Saturn goes briefly back into Virgo into your fifth house. This could be a time when those of you who are looking to get married or go into a long-term committed relationship could finally make the choice. You may have a love affair with someone who is older or acts like a parent to you. This will not be a time to take risks or to gamble.

Jupiter is in your eleventh house for much of the year which means that your hopes and wishes for the future will play an important role in your life. You are likely to become more involved in group activities and it is not a time when you should try to do everything alone. There will be people and friends around you who want to be supportive and you may make many new friends who will be extremely valuable to you in the future. For those of you who are involved with teaching and training other people, or with public speaking in any way, this will be a beneficial time for these activities.

Between June and September, Jupiter moves into your twelfth house. This could spark an interest in metaphysics and subjects like astrology. You will feel more empathy for others and will want to help in some way. You may find that a mentor, teacher or a spiritual person comes into your life to guide you.

For most of the year Uranus is in your eleventh house which indicates that you will be attracted to new kinds of friends, people who challenge your old ways. Even people who have been your friends for a long time may challenge you and involve you in new experiences. You may well resist this at first as it will feel uncomfortable. The more you can go with the flow, the easier this transit will be for you.

Between May and August, Uranus is in your twelfth house and this is a time when skeletons can jump out of the closet – expect the unexpected. Anything you have hidden from others may be revealed and demand to be dealt with. This is a good time for clearing up old issues that have been floating around for a while. They can be dealt with once and for all.

With Neptune in the tenth house all year, this can bring some confusion into your life particularly in relation to your life path. It can make you feel unsure of where you are going and why. If you are already doing work that has meaning to you, then this transit will enhance that in a positive way for you. If, however, you are not doing meaningful work, you may find that you become very disillusioned with your situation and decide that your present calling is not adequate and that you should change direction. This transit favours particular kinds of work like helping people, working in the community, dealing with the public and the media, working with people with emotional and psychological issues. It can also bring out an interest in psychic and spiritual affairs and you may even become involved with these subjects in your profession.

Pluto is in your ninth house and during the next several years your overall view of the world around you will change considerably. Whatever your interests and concerns were prior to this transit, you will want more depth in your life from now on. You may become involved in a group or movement that wants to change society for the better.

In conclusion, this year will be about changes and creating more joy and satisfaction in your work, experimenting and meeting new people and broadening your horizons in every way.

Gemini
Themes: career, work, finances, home and family
Much of the focus for this year will be on your career and your work. There are plenty of new opportunities on the horizon and it is important that you go outside of your comfort zone to access them. With Jupiter and Uranus in your tenth house for the first few months of 2010, you can be especially creative and effective in creating a new direction for yourself in the work area. For those of you who have been looking for a new direction, this is the year that it is likely to manifest. Some of you may find that you lose your job and very quickly find another one that is more satisfying and fulfilling. You do need to be willing to let go of the old and move forward with the new. It’s no use staying somewhere just because you are used to it and because the money is pretty good when you are really not enjoying yourself. If you continue to ignore your intuition, you will find that events take over and you will be forced to move before you feel ready. So use the creative energy of Uranus and Jupiter and open yourself up to new experiences. It promises to be a very exciting time, if you are willing to do what you do best which is to be flexible and go with the flow.

Between June and September, Jupiter and Uranus are in your eleventh house of dreams and wishes. This is a great time to think about what you really want, to be outrageous about it and not to try to diminish it in any way. You may meet some very interesting and unusual people who cause you to learn and grow in brand new ways. Be prepared to take the initiative and join new groups or organisations that interest you. This is going to be the time to meet new friends and these people can be instrumental in helping you to achieve your dreams.

With Pluto in your eighth house, you need to make sure that you have put all your finances in order. This is the time to ensure that you are in control of every aspect of your financial life. Do not leave anything to chance. You do need to be proactive and wherever possible, free yourself of debts. Pluto rules debt and this is not the time to be taking out more financial obligations, it is the time to be freeing yourself from them. There is also the possibility of an inheritance or some money coming to you from somebody else.

Neptune is in your ninth house all year which will stimulate your interest in the spiritual and the occult. This is a time for higher learning that is more intuitive than factual. You will may want to find out about other cultures, civilisations, and how they impact on your world today. It is a time of discovery and you may find yourself drawn to philosophy and a desire to understand and tune into the world around you.

Between April and July, Saturn is in your fourth house of home and family. This means that you still need to put work into this area of your life. You may find that you have serious responsibilities that need to be fulfilled. Some of you may feel that you are in restricted living conditions and you want to be freer, others will want to reduce your outgoings significantly and become much more frugal with your lifestyle. You may also have some issues from the past that need to be resolved now.

A period of several years’ preparation is coming to an end. You are ready to emerge from comparative dormancy and begin to move upward to fulfill your ambitions. It points to a time of new beginnings.

For much of the year Saturn is in your fifth house and you will learn more about yourself and how to express yourself in the best possible way. You may find that you withdraw from encounters with others. This, of course, is not typical of Gemini, but there will be situations where you will want to avoid a confrontation or difference of view. It is important that you face them and do not push the issues under the carpet. It is not a time to speculate or to take risks.

With Mars retrograde in your third house for the first five months of the year, you may feel as though you are going round in circles, especially in connection with the people around you. Communications generally can be challenging and you will need to be a little more patient than usual, as you may have to repeat some of your work and you may find that you have been misunderstood. The best way to deal with this transit is to check and re-check the clarity of your communication. Be sure that your computer has all the necessary virus protections in place and use your energy to plan and to study and to research. Then when Mars goes fully direct in May, you will be ready and able to move forward more easily and effectively.

Cancer
Themes: career, home, travel, study, relationships
The focus for 2010 will be concentrated around your home and your career. Saturn is in your fourth house of home and family for much of the year, so you may find that you have serious responsibilities to take care of connected with your home. You may feel as though you are restricted in some way and may want to renovate or upgrade your living conditions. Financially this is not a good time to move as you need to be conserving your wealth at the moment. Cancer naturally wants to protect what it has and you may find that you need to downsize or reduce your outgoings considerably. Take note of all the expenses you have in your home and try to negotiate better deals. You may find that you are overpaying without knowing it for certain utilities and you need to find other options. There are lots of savings you can make if you set your mind to it. It’s important not to allow your home to become a burden on you and ensure that you get any repairs that you have been procrastinating about completed as soon as possible.

The transit of Saturn through your fourth house is an extremely important one. Any problems in your domestic life come more sharply into focus and anything that you have been trying to put up with but not really handling very well will have to be faced head on. You cannot avoid it. Some of you will experience the effects of this transit as merely a reorganisation of your home environment, while others will experience a total transformation of your personal and family relationships.

You may find that you take on a parental role for someone, or you may seek out someone who takes on a parental role in your life. It will be a feeling of wanting to take care of someone or a strong desire to be looked after by someone who is solid and reliable. You are coming to the end of several years of preparations you have been making and you are about to emerge out of a cocoon and start a new path for the future. Any emotional issues relating to members of your family – from the past or present – are up for healing and you must give them your attention during this transit. This will set you up for success in approximately fourteen years’ time when Saturn will occupy your tenth house of career.

For most of the year, Jupiter and Uranus are in your ninth house which indicates that many of you will be travelling far and wide. This does not always mean physical travel, and can also mean spiritual travel and growth of the mind. It is a great time to learn about spiritual subjects and to expand your knowledge of why you are here and what you are doing. It’s a good time to meet people from different countries, to learn about other cultures and to see which positive aspects you can incorporate into your life. Flashes of inspiration and intuition will be appearing on a regular basis and it is vital that you listen to and act on the messages you receive. If you are a writer, or have any desire to be one, this is an excellent time for it, because the ninth house is the house of publishing and other communications media that span the globe.

Between June and September, Jupiter and Uranus are transiting your tenth house and your attention will turn to your profession, career, social status and reputation. It is a great time for moving ahead and making progress in these areas. It is a time to show your uniqueness and individuality in your work and to break out of old inhibiting patterns. You are a free spirit and you can achieve what you want in your career. Jupiter brings you many opportunities and Uranus forces you out of your comfort zone into new, exciting and uncharted territory. Don’t be afraid and hide your head in the sand, it’s a great time for exploring these opportunities and for trying out new things. You will be able to forge ahead in leaps and bounds if you allow yourself to move into new areas that you maybe thought were impossible to explore. This is the time to take more risks and to come right out of your shell. Expect a radical change in your professional life and also be prepared for possible conflict with people in authority. Overall, there will be new and sudden opportunities in your work.

With Neptune in your eighth house all year, an old order of your life is passing away and a new one is being born. You do need to be on the alert with anything connected with joint finances. Neptune in this house can cause misunderstandings with others concerning money or property. There is also the danger of misrepresentation and fraud. This is definitely not the time to borrow money.

Pluto’s transit through your seventh house indicates profound and significant changes in your relationships – this includes personal and business relationships and includes lawyers, doctors, dentists etc. and any other one-to-one relationships. It is important to avoid power struggles as they can be very destructive. You will be looking for more depth and understanding in your relationships than ever before.

Leo
Themes: finances, work, communications, health, travel, learning
For much of 2010, the focus will be on finance, money and work. Many of you will be embarking on a new course of learning that will enhance your skills and make you more marketable. It is a good time to take on serious study that may take a long while, but will produce results for the future.

With Saturn in your third house for much of the year, you’re going to be taking a long hard look at your environment, the people around you – what is working and what is not working for you. It’s time to look at the way you communicate with others, your attitudes, habits, and ways of listening to people. Normally you take these issues for granted, but they are going to be very important in forming the structure for your future. You may have to deal with issues concerning people in your immediate surroundings, especially workmates, relatives and neighbours. It’s important that you are honest and straightforward with your communication and that you don’t let anything fester inside of you. If it means losing a friendship or a particular relationship, then take that chance – if the person doesn’t accept your side of the situation, then it is best you know sooner rather than later.

Saturn is in your second house from April to July and it is important for you to take another look at what is really important to you. This does not only mean material things, but also spiritual and moral values. You may feel as though your finances are quite restricted and you have to watch every penny. This is true and you will find that you have to work hard, but it will pay off for you. The best way to deal with this transit is to organise your finances as well as you can, be frugal with your outgoings and then don’t worry about it. For those of you who are not happy with your current way of earning your income, you may need to consider working for less money, but for more job satisfaction.

For most of the year Jupiter and Uranus are in your eighth house which means that there is the possibility of a windfall coming to you from somebody else or from some investment or a property. However, Jupiter can also mean a large amount of money going out too, so it could go either way. Be sure to keep a tight rein on your joint finances. Don’t get involved in any “get rich quick” schemes that involve you putting up some money. Uranus adds an element of surprise into the equation, and this can mean sudden changes affecting your business partner or your intimate partner. If your financial situation is dependent upon your partner’s, it will probably be quite erratic for these months. However, there could also be a sudden change in your partner’s sources of income. It’s important during this transit not to become dependent upon anyone else’s money, even through a bank. You may also want to break out of a restrictive financial situation with someone.

You may have a new sexual relationship quite different from any you have been involved in before. However, don’t count on this being a long-lasting relationship because you are going through some big psychological changes at the moment and your needs will be very different a few years from now. Avoid new long-range commitments. If you can enjoy the relationship for the short-term, it will be very uplifting and enlivening. If, however, your emotions engage too deeply in a relationship, then it’s probably best to steer clear of the experience.

Between June and September, Uranus along with Jupiter is in your ninth house. This indicates the possibility of sudden trips abroad and new opportunities for expanding your knowledge. You may begin to study science and technology or new techniques in your work. Many people who study astrology begin under this transit. It’s a great time to write a book, to get it published and to be seen by the global community. There will be opportunities for learning and teaching others. You will probably do much more reading than usual and your views on life in general will change. There is the likelihood that you will become increasingly involved with foreign people or cultures either in your business or personal life.

With Neptune in your seventh house all year, many of you will be looking for that “ideal” relationship. If you are in a relationship, you will not be seeing it clearly and you will have rose-tinted glasses on. This applies to business relationships and people with whom you consult, such as lawyers, doctors, counsellors. There is a danger of poor communications and misunderstandings – so be sure to get two opinions and also have everything that is agreed put in writing. If you are in business, be very careful about forming a new partnership at this time. It is not likely to work out the way you want it to and your partner may be more of a hindrance than a help.

As Pluto is in your sixth house, you need to take care of your health and not overdo things. If you have been avoiding getting something checked out, now is the time to face it and book that appointment. It is a time when you can undergo complete physical regeneration. If you adopt a careful physical regimen now you can rebuild your body even if you have neglected it in previous years.



Virgo
Themes: dreams and wishes, finance, money, self-development, health
Many of you heaved a huge sigh of relief as Saturn finally exited your sign in October 2009. It makes a brief foray back into Virgo between April and July 2010, so don’t be overly concerned if you feel as though you are being pulled back and that nothing is moving very quickly for you. This three month period is just a checking time to ensure that you have outlined your priorities in life very clearly and that your plans are in alignment with your wishes for the future. It’s a final opportunity for you to get clear about what you are wanting, how you see yourself and to ensure that you are focused on what you want and not on what everyone around you seems to think you want. You may find that you want to withdraw from the world a little during this period in order to put the finishing touches on your goals.

For the rest of the year, Saturn is in your second house. Now it is time for you to learn what is really important to you, what you really value. This does not only apply to material things, but also to your spiritual, ethical and moral values. It is certainly a time when you will have to be quite frugal with your resources. You are not known for being very extravagant anyway, but this is not the time to splash out on big investments or grandiose business ideas. It is important that you don’t allow fear and financial insecurity to overwhelm you. The best course of action is to organise your finances as well as you can so that you don’t have to be thinking and worrying about them all the time. Try to reduce your expenses, look around for the best deals and negotiate on the price as best you can whenever you really need to buy something.

The main areas of focus for 2010 will be on yourself and your self-development and your relationships – both personal and professional. Jupiter and Uranus are in your seventh house for much of the year, which means that there could be some sudden changes in your intimate relationship – you may be feeling too restricted and you want to break out of old habit patterns, or you may just want something new. So you will either have to introduce more excitement into your existing relationship or you will want to move on. For those of you looking for a relationship, this is a time with great potential as Jupiter the planet of abundance in that house indicates the possibility of meeting lots of new people. However, Uranus can suddenly bring someone into your life and then just as quickly, they can disappear again.

For those of you who have been keeping an unsatisfactory relationship going for years, it will be difficult to hold it together during this transit. If you have been keeping a marriage going for the sake of the children, or because of financial dependency, you will find it increasingly challenging to keep it going with Uranus in your seventh house. Uranus frees you of ties that are not nourishing for you. However, if you have a secure relationship Uranus will not be the cause of a break-up.

Between June and September, Uranus and Jupiter are in your eighth house. You may receive an inheritance or a large amount of money from someone else. It could be from an investment you made or a property sale. Whilst Jupiter does mean abundance, it can also mean that the money is gone as quickly as it came in. So if you do receive some money, try to invest it wisely and if it means doing something differently than you might usually do, that may be the best way to protect it. Uranus can mean sudden changes in your financial situation, especially in relation to a partner or business partner. Their source of income may change suddenly or may become more erratic. However with Jupiter, usually things turn out for the best.

With Neptune in your sixth house this will affect both your health and your work. You need to pay attention to your physical health right now and if you can steer clear of drugs and alcohol. Try not to go on a radical diet, but make sure you are getting all the vitamins you need. You may find that you are looking after people in some way connected to your work. You can make achievements with this placement of Neptune especially if you are working in a spirit of service to others.

Pluto in your fifth house can indicate a love affair that is emotionally involved and intense. Be wary of a relationship in which you feel obsessed or totally consumed by that person. It is unlikely that a relationship in severe trouble will survive this period, but if it does it will be everlasting.

Libra
Themes: self-discovery, work, health, relationships, home and family
Saturn has finally made it into Libra, your sign, which means that a whole new cycle is about to begin. It goes briefly into your twelfth house between April and July and during that time you need to focus on finishing up anything that needs to be completed. I am sure many of you have already experienced important elements of your life passing away. You may have felt quite withdrawn lately so that you can get in touch with what is happening. It’s a time to be really honest with yourself and use the time to understand what you have accomplished and what is yet to be done. Try not to judge or evaluate, simply observe yourself. You may feel pressures for tremendous changes both in the direction of your life and the way in which you should proceed with that new direction. Cut your losses, if any, and look to the future rather than to the past.

Saturn is in your sign for the remainder of the year and in fact until October 2012, so this is a new beginning of internal growth. You may feel as though you have heavy responsibilities, but this is a time when you can accomplish great things. You have spent the last several years looking outward and developing social and work contacts. This period is about looking inward and learning about what you want and need in your life. It is time to understand yourself in a new way and not to settle for anything or anyone in your life who does not meet your new standards. It’s important that you do not scatter your energies in lots of different directions during this transit or you will find yourself exhausted. If however, you are able to focus inward, to listen to your inner voice and to act on those messages, you will find that this transit can be very beneficial to you. If work has to be done, don’t try to avoid it – face it head on and force yourself to knuckle down and accomplish your goals. Once you get going, you will find that you build momentum and it will become easier. The key is getting started and not procrastinating and making excuses that you cannot make up your mind. During this period, anything old that is inhibiting your forward progress will be taken away from you. If you can see this as a big lesson, you do not need to suffer, but rather you will feel freer and less weighed down with responsibilities.

Jupiter and Uranus are in your sixth house of work and health for much of the year. This is a very good time for any kind of work and for applying yourself to tasks that contribute to your personal growth. Your work should be fulfilling to you now and give you a sense of purpose and a structure for your life. Uranus could bring about a sudden end or a new beginning in your work. However, if you do have to move job, it is likely to be an improved situation with more opportunities for satisfaction and enjoyment. Jupiter in the sixth generally gives your body good health and vitality, however, you may have to watch out that you don’t put on too much weight. If for some reason your body has to heal or recover from something, this transit will help the process. With Uranus in this sixth house, you will be seeking out opportunities to become free of excessive demands of others. If you are in a dull routine, expect to be shaken out of it! You may encounter an increasing amount of work with computers and technology. If you go with the changes rather than resist them, this transit will be very beneficial to you. If you don’t, then you risk having accidents or mishaps so that you are shaken out of your complacency.

Jupiter and Uranus move into your seventh house between June and September. This indicates growth and new experiences with respect to your one-to-one relationships. Some relationships that have become boring or do not stimulate you will have to end. This will make the space for something or someone new and exciting to come into your life. If you are involved in a relationship which is not working out very well, this transit may just break it. However, if you have a strong partnership, you will be able to adapt to the changes. Even in the best relationship, however, this transit signifies a time to make much needed changes. You may see a new relationship as a way to escape from the daily routine of your existing ones. With Jupiter in this house as well, you will meet people who can help you in various ways. It’s a good time to look for any professional assistance, for example, lawyers, doctors, counsellors. This transit can also indicate a partnership or close relationship with a foreigner.

With Neptune in your fifth house all year, it’s likely that you will seek relationships with the opposite sex that fit a very romantic image. You are looking for an ideal and if you have children, you will not see any faults in them at all. Be careful not to become involved with someone who needs you to save them. For example an alchoholic or a drug-addict and you spend your precious energy on trying to reform their behaviour. Avoid getting involved in risky financial ventures as this is the house of speculation and Neptune tends to dissipate funds and you won’t know where your money has disappeared to.

Pluto in your fourth house of home and family can indicate that you have unresolved issues from your past that are coming up for healing. Many issues from your childhood may emerge and you will no longer be satisfied just to live with them, you will gain a new understanding of patterns that have been plaguing you for a long time and you will feel more in control of this area of your life.

Scorpio
Themes: study, creativity, business, work, home and family
This year will focus around deep learning experiences, understanding the nature of your mind and how you can use it more effectively to get what you want. Work and play will come under the spotlight and many of you will need to learn how to relax more, take it easy and enjoy the simple things in life. You do everything with maximum intensity and this year will be a mixture of internal growth and deep psychological change and inner regeneration that will continue for many years to come. You will find it increasingly difficult to keep problems buried and you will need to face challenges head on and find ways in which you can maintain your power in your relationships.

Saturn is in your twelfth house for much of the year and you will find yourself completing many things in your life. Important elements in your life may begin to pass away and activities that used to work well, no longer do. You may wish to withdraw a little and analyse your progress over the last few years. What is impeding you from moving forward? Are there any unhealthy relationships, situations that need to be handled? This is the time to do it. This is the end of a cycle so it is important to clear away leftovers from the past and clear the decks for your new start. You will probably feel great pressure to make changes and being a fixed sign, you do not particularly relish change. However, anything that is in your way of your positive growth needs to be cleared away. You are going through a cycle of defining who you are and what you want. It’s a time to cut your losses and look to the future instead of harking back to the past.

Saturn makes a brief foray back into Virgo between April and July and this will be the time to finalise any plans you have been making with respect to your dreams and wishes for the future. It’s time to be concrete and physical and to actually start taking actions towards your goals. Completions with groups that no longer serve you or excite you could take place as well as endings of friendships that no longer foster your growth.

Jupiter and Uranus are in your fifth house of creativity and entrepreneurship for much of the year, so for those of you who are looking to start your own business, this is a great time to do it. For those of you who already have your own business, the influence of Uranus will bring you new and exciting opportunities. Jupiter can make you go over the top and be too optimistic, so long as you steer clear of get-rich-quick schemes, you can make a lot of money and be very successful at this time using your own creativity and innovativeness. You will find your creative self-expression is stronger than ever. Your relationships with others should improve considerably. If you have children, this transit will improve your relationship with them and you will probably feel very proud of them. If you have any artistic skills, use them in your work. If you already work in a creative or artistic field, you may make more money than usual.

This should be a very exciting time in your life and some of you may embark on an unusual relationship. As long as you don’t expect the relationship to last, you will be fine. It may last but it is best that you don’t expect it to. If you begin a relationship during this period, it will not easily settle down into a daily routine – so be prepared for change and go with the flow and you will maintain the excitement and passion you so desire.

Between June and September, Uranus and Jupiter move into your sixth house of health and work. It’s very likely that many of you will change your job and you will want to break out of an established routine. You may have to work increasingly with computers and new technology. If you are feeling confined and restricted, Uranus will help you to break out of old patterns and move into something completely new and stimulating. You will have lots of new ideas about how to improve the efficiency of your workplace. Although there will be much change in your work, it’s also a good time for success and growth in the work area. You will be able to make progress as long as you don’t feel stifled. Your health will be enhanced if you allow new things to come into your life and don’t resist them. The more you can go with the flow, the better this transit will serve you and you will have more opportunities in your work than ever before.

Neptune is in your fourth house all year and you will be dreaming of how you would like your home to be. There could be some confusion about your living situation – should you move? Should you stay where you are? Try to take time out to meditate and listen to what your inner voice is saying to you. It will not be easy to take a logical, practical view, rather it will be your emotions and intuition that will guide you in the right direction.

Sagittarius
Themes: finances, work, relationships, home, dreams and wishes
Much of the focus for 2010 will be around your finances, your work and your love life. With Pluto transiting your second house of money and values you are experiencing great changes in this area. There may already have been some kind of breakdown in your finances and you may be forced to get along with much less than you are used to. You may find that you have difficulty borrowing money – take this as a sign that you are not meant to go into debt at this time. You might have to consider changing the source of your income which may result in less income during the changeover. If you own property, you may need to invest money into repairs or modernisation. Your material base is going to change considerably, but you will not be poor. It is a temporary phase and your attitude towards your belongings will start to become healthier. You may find that physical things are not as important to you as they were – your priorities will change. This is a slow transit and will take many years to complete its course. Try not to be overly concerned if your finances feel like they are on a rollercoaster. One of the advantages of this transit is that once you have broken down old habit patterns that have been restricting your finances from increasing, you have the potential to make a huge amount of money and wealth. So hang in there!

Neptune is in your third house all year and you may find that you have to pay much more attention to the way you are communicating with people around you. There is a tendency for Neptune to fog issues and you may find that there are misunderstandings. Enter into any kind of negotiation with extreme care. Don’t jump into anything too quickly. Take your time to clarify all the small details before you make your decision. You may find this is a time when you become much more interested in metaphysical subjects such as karma and reincarnation. You will learn how to apply these lessons into your everyday life.

Jupiter and Uranus are in your fourth house of home and family for most of the year. This is a time when you will be seeking inner peace and security, but with Uranus there you need to expect the unexpected. Jupiter will make you want to buy a piece of property so that you can have stability for the future. However, if you do this while Uranus is there too, you may find that you have made a rash decision and maybe you should have waited before investing. So don’t get attached to a particular deal – it could be taken away from you at a moment’s notice. Also be careful not to invest too much into the property, with Pluto in the second house, it is not a good time to take out a large amount of debt. Uranus can indicate a sudden move of home. Old ties with the past may be severed which may give you a feeling that you have lost your roots. In the end, however, this break may free you from old patterns that have stopped you from moving forward. You may later be able to re-establish those connections, but they will be much more balanced and you will not feel quite as dominated by them. If your living situation does change, it may take a while for it to settle down again. When you do, however, you will feel much freer and lighter than ever.

Between June and September, Uranus is in your fifth house with Jupiter. This is an exciting period when new opportunities for growth in your work can appear, especially if you are self-employed. There is the possibility of starting up a new relationship, but don’t expect it to be like anything you have ever experienced before. If you try to pigeon-hole it into a neat little box, you will find it will disappear on you. If you allow it to evolve and change – maybe from a friendship to a love affair or vice versa – then you will feel exhilarated and rejuvenated by the experience. Jupiter in the fifth indicates a possible windfall. Just make sure that you don’t spend it all too quickly. It’s a fortunate placement of Jupiter so if you are an entrepreneur, it’s a good time to expand your business or to move into something new.

Saturn is in your eleventh house for much of the year. This is the house of your hopes and wishes, your ideals and objectives in life. During this transit you will find out whether or not you have worked effectively to reach these ideals. If you have prepared well, you will find that you achieve the results you have been working for. If you have not prepared well, then this will be a time of clearing out and making way for new things to come into your life. An older person who acts as a mentor or advisor to you may appear.

Between April and July Saturn briefly goes back into your tenth house – this is a time to ensure that you are not too focused on your external life that you overlook what is happening in your personal life. This is a good year to move into new areas with your work, to be innovative and creative and to take a few more risks.

Capricorn
Themes: career, finances, home and family, success, personal growth
With Pluto now firmly entrenched in your sign for the next sixteen years or so, many Capricorns have already felt huge changes in their life. You are embarking on a rebirth of yourself and in that, you have to let go of the old. You cannot continue with your old patterns of behaving and expect new results. You have to let go. The year will focus mainly on career, finances and your home. The effect of Pluto is to make you want to have control over every single thing in your life. This could make relationships with others very challenging. You will be driven to learn more about yourself, to understand how you tick, what motivates you and what interests you. You will be attracted to the mysteries and hidden aspects of life and this may lead to the study of astrology or other metaphysical subjects. It’s a time of deep self-examination and empowerment. Don’t expect everything to be revealed to you in a short period – this is an unfolding that will take many years to complete – but at the end of it you will be a much richer, stronger and more powerful being.

With Neptune in your second house all year, you will experience a change of attitude towards material possessions and your values will change. The more you are attached to what you own, the more likely you are to lose it. This doesn’t mean that you are going to lose everything, but you may experience confusion regarding property and you may be deluded into making costly mistakes. Use your solid Capricorn judgment and take your time before jumping into any business deal. You must be even more careful about managing your money and possessions than you already are and avoid getting involved in any risky ventures that other people want to involve you in.

Jupiter and Uranus are in your third house for the first half of the year which means that more people are likely to come into your life. It’s a great time to network and to join interesting groups that could be receptive to the work or business that you are in. It’s a good time to embark upon a course of study or to start a new teaching project. Your mind will be especially receptive and retentive so research ways in which you can extend your skills. Uranus in the third house indicates that you will change some of your habits. Anything that you are involved with on an intellectual basis will be very exciting. If you are involved with Uranian subjects such as technology, science, metaphysics you may become very well-known in your field. Expect the tempo of events in your daily life to accelerate. Try to be as flexible as you can so that you can benefit from the new things and people that will come into your life during this transit.

Between June and September, Jupiter and Uranus are in your fourth house. This could mean some upheavals and changes in the area of your home and family. There could be an unexpected move of home or a new person come to live with you or near to you. Someone from the past could turn up without warning and it will be exciting. You may find that you want to move home or at least invest in a piece of property. If you are able to do this without taking out very much debt, then fine. But if you have to burden yourself with a heavy debt, then this is not a good idea. You may want to enlarge the property you are living in or make some more space in some way. It’s a good time to throw out or sell your clutter so that something new can come into your life.

With Saturn in your tenth house for much of the year, this will be a time when you are working assiduously towards success in your career. If you have prepared well during the previous seven years or so, then you will be reaping the harvest of your hard work now. In your professional life, you will gain responsibilities. If you want a leadership position, it is likely to happen during this transit which lasts until October 2012. If you are ambitious, this is a time of great achievement. At this time you have the greatest opportunity to make your unique impression on the world. Make sure that you are not too focused on external affairs and that you pay enough attention to your personal life. Make sure you find a good balance between the two. If you have prepared well, however, this can be one of the most rewarding times in your life as you have definitely earned it.

Between April and July, Saturn makes a brief backward move into your ninth house which means that you may take a long journey for work to fulfill certain obligations. This can be a year of self-discovery and success in your career.

Aquarius
Themes: finances, self-development, travel, values, study
With Pluto in your twelfth house, you are undergoing deep psychological changes. This transit activates the hidden side of you and makes you learn how to understand and control it, but it also activates issues that you have not faced in the past. These may be relationships that have failed or actions that you are aware of but want to sweep under the carpet. It is vital that you confront anything that is hidden or unpleasant and bring it out into the open. By avoiding them you have created a situation in which they control you. Pluto wants you to have control over your life and only by facing these issues honestly can you clear them away and move on productively in all areas of your life. It may feel frightening at first, but the more emotional risks you are prepared to take, the more empowered you will feel.

With Neptune in your first house, you are being very idealistic at this time, often acting on the basis of what you want to be true rather than what is actually true. Watch out that you don’t get involved with any unrealistic projects that have no basis in reality. This transit will increase your compassion for others. You may take care of someone you love who needs help. Make sure you don’t allow them to become too dependent on you as that will not allow them to grow. Ensure that you don’t become too dependent on someone either during this time – there is a tendency with Neptune to meet someone who seems amazing and you put them on a pedestal only to find that you are disillusioned with them later on.

Uranus and Jupiter are in your second house for much of the year which means that you could have a sudden windfall or a great opportunity to make a lot of money. However, Jupiter means a lot of money either coming in or going out. Just make sure you are not over-spending and that you are keeping a tight rein on your finances. With Jupiter there, however, you are likely to be fortunate not matter what you get involved in. It’s a great time to be creative and innovative with respect to your finances. Think up new and interesting ways to make money and they will have the potential to succeed. You will feel very generous towards others, but make sure you don’t spend too much money in the process. Your generosity can be expressed in ways other than spending money and buying gifts.

Uranus and Jupiter are in your third house between June and September, which means that many of you will undertake a new course of study. It is a great time to increase your skills and for learning something new. Anything connected with the internet, new technology, electronics, space, aviation, astrology and metaphysics are all areas that would be very worthwhile for you to study. Often people who become well known in these fields began their course of study during this period. You may find that you want to socialise a lot more and meet new and interesting people. It’s a good time for writing, filming and anything connected with the media. The tempo of events in your life is likely to increase. You may find that it is challenging for you to stick to a routine – you will want much more freedom with your time. Think carefully about ways of creating a passive income for yourself so that you do not have to have too many restrictions on your use of time.

Saturn is in your ninth house for much of the year which means that many of you are approaching a peak in your life. You may have to make long trips for your work or for learning. These will be huge growth experiences. Between April and September, Saturn briefly goes into your eighth house and you do need to ensure that you have all your financial issues in order. This is a last opportunity to clear up anything connected with joint finances, loans, insurances, investments and make sure that you understand what your obligations are. If you are uncertain about anything, then get professional advice from at least one consultant.

Pisces
Themes: relationships, joint finances, money, self-development, friends
With Jupiter and Uranus in your first house for much of the year, this promises to be a time filled with new opportunities and success. You are beginning a major new cycle of growth in your life. You will feel less need to withdraw from people or hide your talents. People and resources are likely to be drawn to you now and you should take advantage of them. The spiritual part of your life will grow as well. This year should be quite fortunate for you and your relationships and encounters with others should be very fulfilling for you. It’s a time to work on increasing your self-confidence and enjoying the good things that are coming your way. Uranus has been in your first house for several years now, and you have almost become accustomed to the sudden changes that keep happening in your life. Fortunately, being a mutable sign, you are able to be more flexible than many of the other signs, but you do need to ensure that you have freedom and do not feel constricted or controlled by others.

Between June and September, Jupiter and Uranus move into your second house. This can indicate a windfall – a sudden amount of money coming into your life unexpectedly. There is also the possibility that the money can be going out of your life unexpectedly too. The main thing about this transit is that your finances and income can be erratic. With Jupiter there, however, you are not going to be short of money, but you may have difficulty hanging onto it. Try not to be extravagant and to take advantage of any new business opportunities that come your way. It’s a good time to study anything connected with finance and business and to learn new ways of making money. It’s very important that you get clear about what you need and want financially. It doesn’t mean that you cannot go out and buy something you’d like, just make sure you really do want it and that it doesn’t set you back financially or put you in debt in order to have it.

Saturn is in your eighth house for much of the year which will bring into focus any finances or possession that you hold with other people. Other people’s resources or money may be cut off from you for a time. Your partner may find their income is reduced. You will not be able to count upon others for any kind of material support. It’s a good idea to get into a position where you don’t have to depend on anyone else for your money. One of the most important things about this transit is that you need to ensure that your finances are in order and that you do not take on any heavy financial obligations. It’s also a time to look at the institutions and people who take care of your money: your banks, your insurance company, the professionals – lawyers, financial advisors etc., and to ensure that they are acting in your best interest. You may need to make some changes in order to conserve your wealth. Be prepared to walk away from a long-term relationship if necessary.

With Pluto in your eleventh house all year, you will undergo changes in your long-range goals and hopes for the future. The kinds of people you associate with as friends will change. Activities that you once enjoyed may no longer appeal to you. You may decide that the goals and ideals you had are no longer worth pursuing. Your friendships will change dramatically and you may meet someone who affects you so deeply that the whole course of your life changes. Shallow, old friendships may end during this transit and new, deeper ones may be created. It’s a good time to set new goals and dreams – take the time to think deeply about what you want to achieve.

Neptune is in your twelfth house all year and you will be examining your life from a spiritual perspective. As a Pisces, you are good at escaping into your own dreamworld, and Neptune will encourage you to withdraw from the rapid pace of your everyday life. You will be concerned with the meaning of life and how you can make a valuable contribution to the world. Try not to isolate yourself in the process – make sure that you find the balance between looking inwards and moving outwards.

This promises to be a lucky year for you with plenty of opportunities for growth personally, financially, emotionally and spiritually. You will put energy into helping other people and many of you may become involved in the health and healing field.
