Het jaar van de aap, 2016

2016The horoscope for 2016 , based on the astrological situation of the period under examination, brings hope that, in general, 2016 will be a lively bright and fascinating time, filled with large-scale and amazing events.  Each of us will be able to gain something in the unrelenting cycle of the universe; something that we will reflect upon within ourselves with profound and zealous light.

In accordance with the eastern zodiac system, the Monkey, a metaphysical embodiment of the anthropogenic factor, will be the main patron of 2016.  In other words, this is our year, the year of humanity. 2016, the year of the Monkey, will begin February 7th, 2016 according to the eastern calendar and end on January 27th, 2017.  2016 will be the year of Red Fire Monkey. Generally speaking, in the Chinese horoscope, the Monkey corresponds to the element of Metal, whereas this element is non-existent in the traditional western astrology.  The systems formed in different parts of the globe, in reality, complement each other.  And we must acknowledge that in this case, the symbol of 2016 is the Monkey; it’s an image of a creature that has risen above the animal world, has become the king of this world, without subordinating the surrounding reality to its will, but recognizing it by becoming part of a harmonious universe.  In this regard, Eastern philosophy is much more profound and metaphorical than European one.

It is important for us to know that in 2016 the stars and elements will favor researchers, scientists, adventurers, anyone who denies passivity and tends to constantly explore everything that surrounds us.  Of course, this doesn’t imply that the average man in 2016 will “fall short” of all the positive trends; quite the opposite is true, but here everything is a matter of your perception and consciousness.  The horoscopes of 2016 for all zodiac signs and years of birth indicate that regardless of our profession, each of us can (and should) strive for steady progress.  That being said, this progress can acquire different forms and shapes.  One person is to maintain order in the courtyard of their house, one is to erect skyscrapers, and another is to conquer Everest.   And it’s difficult to say who has what it takes to be more of a researcher, because in many cases they are required to show remarkable skill, precise calculation, perseverance, strong will, and a number of other qualities.  In 2016, new horizons will open for each of us, and the more we strive upward, the "bigger and broader" the world will grow around us.  It is not hard to guess that this year will bring about many discoveries in all fields of science. Of course, we need to take into consideration the role of the law of accelerating progress, but it is the year of 2016 that will be most crucial in terms of scientific research.

Speaking of the benevolence of the stars, it is hardly possible to point out the element that will clearly establish its dominate in 2016.  Each sign of the classical (European) zodiac system of astrology possesses its own characteristics and features that are worth considering.  For example, the signs of the Fire element, which are renowned for their temperament and emotional side, will be surprised to discover new opportunities in front of them, and their psycho-mental (emotional) energy will receive an additional impulse due to the increased dynamics of the solar energy in 2016 allocated to the signs of this group.  To put it simply, if earlier representatives of such signs as Aries, Leo or Sagittarius were the last to “pass out” at a party, now you will literally keep going without stopping.  Your life energy will be perpetually upbeat!  And it has nothing to do with loud music, so no headaches are expected.  That being said, it’s better to use your new opportunities not for parties, but for something more sensible and rational.

The signs of the Water element (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) in 2016 will have to go through a series of ordeals; this will apply to the esoteric side of their lives.  You may be able to undergo a rite of passage and you will be entrusted with some secret information or some mystery; the chances are good that in 2016 you will be highly likely to fulfill your lifelong dreams.  In other words, for the water signs of the zodiac system, it will be a time of understanding, awareness and acceptance of certain hidden knowledge that not everyone is entitled to lay their hands on.  Whether it’s good or not is up to every individual to decide.  It is important to realize that 2016 will give everyone almost unlimited opportunities in terms of spiritual progress, but your responsibility increases in direct proportion to the growth of your awareness.  For example, how much responsibility lies on the shoulders of an ant?  In fact, a lot, but compared to the Sun the sphere of the ant’s responsibility is really insignificant.  And it has nothing to do with the fact that an ant is a living being and the Sun is not.  These phenomena are of the same order; everything in this world is.  However, they are distinguished by different possibilities, which define the scope of their responsibility.

The zodiac signs of the Air element (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) in 2016 will clearly experience no problems in their “love life”.  Of course, everything here is quite individual, and a lot depends on the actual characteristics of the position of this or that zodiac sign.  But, on the whole, the sphere of personal relations will be the "strong" side of life of the signs of the air element.  It doesn’t mean that you are unlikely to “be caught” while cheating.  We are not talking about the indulgence of your "carnal desires", but the harmonious correlation of different facts and situations involving you and your significant other.  2016 will be romantic, gentle, affectionate and sincere.  Perhaps you will encounter some disappointments, but take it easy; everything will happen the way it should.  And if you were dumped by your loved one, it's no reason to “grow out your beard”, “get down in the dumps”, and lose control of your life.  Perhaps you are not the perfect match for each other or ... well, they had a drawback that you refused to notice.

The Earth element in 2016 will be subject to stellar influences to a much lesser extent than other zodiac signs, although it would be irrational not to mention the increased dynamics of the influence of Mercury on the representatives of this group.  In general, we can say that in the sphere of work and finance, everything will be “okay” for the zodiac signs of the Earth element (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn) at this stage.  Of course, we should also take into account the personal aspect.  In other words, if you do nothing, then something good is unlikely to come of it.  Did you know that in order to fulfill the sacred duty to your family, it’s not enough to do the dishes or chop some wood in the yard?  Everything is much more interesting and bigger, and if you don’t see things this way, it doesn’t mean that it’s not true.  The earth signs in 2016 are about to undergo a "radical change" in terms of their spiritual evolution.

Every New Year, waiting in our doorway, requires from us preparations for it in advance, as it’s a complex and dynamic period in our life.  The greatest excitement is triggered by the questions concerning the success of our professional field, as well as of our personal life: will it be possible to improve our destiny, or will our plans for a better future be ruined?  We wish a happy 2016 and want you to forget about all the troubles in your life!  May every moment be full of love, tenderness and happiness! :
