Happy New Year, everyone! 2016 can’t possibly be as storm-tossed and roller-coasterish as 2015, so here’s to more awakening, more abundance, and Change Change Change for the 99.99% of us on this planet who are growing and changing, waking up and questioning, speaking out and whistle-blowing, challenging corporate corruption and criminality, exposing government crime and over-reach, and working actively to make our planet a better place!
I’m cheered by all the forecasts I’ve been reading that point to absolute change in our future (think reset/change, not economic collapse!) and especially heartened by Carl Boudreau’s predictions that 2016 (and Time beyond that) will be a Year for the 99%.
I can’t read the stars–but I Can read energies–and I sense he is absolutely right. This year will be a year for the Anahata Chakra–the heart chakra–and the great, sweeping energies of the heart. It will be a year of connection of heart energies across the planet. If you meditate regularly, you will know this is already happening. If you stop for a moment and sink into that center space in you, everyday–whether by means of meditation, or quiet time or prayer or doing what you love, just for a little while, you might hear the resonance. (See this post from last year on how science today tells us that you, individually, can make a huge difference in our common morpho-genetic field with the great electromagnetic energies of your heart.)
I hope you’ll plan to spend time this year doing what you love and discovering the great expansiveness of your own heart energy, from the unique heart-center of your own being. Spend time discovering that center, if you haven’t already. This is the year for your deepest imaginings, your most central yearnings–a year to manifest from the heart.
Can we help change the tilt of our currrent reality toward chaos, war, totalitarian control, and craziness? Doing what we love, imagine light, pouring out from our centered-selves into the universe. Imagine that powerful energy of centered-ness from each of us spinning out in great chakric (wheel-like) swirls into the magnetic field of the earth, connecting, smoothening, changing. Believe we can, if we set our hearts to it.

Your guide to planetary energies for December 28, 2015 to January 3, 2016
By Pam Younghans
(Excerpt) THE NEW YEAR begins with two planets changing signs. First off, Mercury, the planet that rules thinking and communication, leaves rule-oriented Capricorn and enters nonconformist Aquarius on Friday.
This normally would be the beginning of a three-week-long opening to new ideas and plans, but since Mercury goes retrograde next Tuesday, January 5 (and quickly returns to Capricorn), we’ll want to consider Mercury’s brief foray into Aquarius to be a small, tempting taste of what new directions are possible beginning February 13, when the planet again enters Aquarius for its full run.
(If you’re wondering why my teleclass is earlier than usual this year, it’s because I wanted to avoid holding it while Mercury was retrograde! But, since Mercury’s station is only 12 hours after the teleclass airs, we may need to accommodate some communication glitches anyway. My hope is that we can take advantage of the positives of Mercury in Aquarius, and share some enlightening and life-enhancing information … tune in and see!)
MARS ENTERS SCORPIO on Sunday, leaving the calmer but sometimes indecisive realms of Libra. The planet Mars represents our capacity for forward motion, assertive action, and the urge to fulfill our personal desires. When in Scorpio, Mars can become even more determined than usual, more focused, and less capable of putting aside its needs.
We’ll want to monitor how we feel, and what we feel passionate about, while Mars is in Scorpio. We may be more likely to dive head-first into whatever pool draws our attention, before considering the ramifications of our actions. This rashness could be especially problematic with Mercury being retrograde, since judgment tends to not be as reliable during this time.
In other words, do your best to be self-observant and maintain some objectivity, and check out all the facts before committing to something over the next four weeks (Mercury goes direct on January 25). On the other hand, Mars in Scorpio can be very exciting — just be ready for a bit of a wild ride if you decide to take the plunge!
2016 BEGINS with some powerful cosmic energies at work. The life-altering influence of the Uranus-Pluto square that has been with us for the past four years is finally nearing the end of its active period — but it touches back in with us in late 2015 and early 2016 to finish up lingering issues before moving to the back seat more permanently.
At the same time, the soul-stirring Saturn-Neptune square that began to work with us in Fall 2015 is very much in our awareness. These two planets challenge us to attain new levels of faith and transcendence, and new understandings of our life’s meanings and purposes. This influence will continue to work with us throughout most of 2016.

From Carl Boudreau: Excerpt below from Things to Come
Within roughly four years, beginning in 2008, the three powerful outer planets all changed signs. These three great ingresses triggered world altering and life changing events and, on a personal level, persistent inner turmoil.
Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto have settled into a supportive, resourceful bracelet of semi-sextiles, sextiles and trines that is opportunity and option rich, though not challenge free.
As of now, the world still looks and feels like a violent and dangerous place, wracked with chaos in many places. Socio-economic inequality is still extreme. Thousands are still suffering from war and its aftermath.
People are understandably concerned about the future. But, as I have said in recent posts, the planets are offering much reason for hope.
The Re-Empowerment of the 99%
As I explained in recent posts, when Uranus entered Aries in 2010, it broke up a long-standing planetary arrangement. That arrangement had the effect of increasing social, political and economic inequality to extreme levels, worldwide.
When Uranus entered Aries, one of the three powerful outer planets entered a sign associated with the 99% (i.e., the middle class and working people) for the first time in over 40 years. The power of the great outer planets was no longer concentrated exclusively in signs associated with the 1% (i.e., the governing elite).
Before Uranus moved into Aries, while this concentration of power was still in full force, virtually every event and circumstance somehow conspired to further enrich and empower the 1%.
The good news is that the new planetary arrangement, too, constitutes a lasting archetypal pattern. We can expect events to follow this pattern until it, too, changes.
With Uranus transiting the signs of the 99%, we can expect the continuing, progressive re-empowerment of the 99%. In fact, around the time of the 2010 Aries ingress, the 99% did begin their first tentative, halting steps to reclaim their power.
As of now, we still only see somewhat sporadic revolts, erratic social activism and occasional attempts at restoration. Though that is changing. If the past is any indication, however, if astrology is a reliable indicator, these efforts will multiply.
Coming Astrological Attractions
Several important ingresses in the years immediately ahead of us will intensify, accelerate and broaden the re-empowerment efforts of the 99%.
There are many layers of astrological complexity at work in the astrological events I will describe. However, this complexity produces a vibrant, subtle, highly textured and nuanced energy that supports creativity and innovation.
Please visit Things to Come/Carl Boudreau for the full post.
Also, a video forecast from KG Stiles, who speaks about a paradigm shift and mind shift that more of us on the planet will continue to experience as we each awaken separately to our own potential–with all of the energies coming in to the planet these days–something I hope to research also from the viewpoint of astronomy shortly:
Wishing everyone a New Year of peace, change, light, connection, heart-centering, creativity, and an end to tyranny.
