Your 2015 Astrological Forecast For Health, Happiness & Relationships
The new year is loaded with dynamic firepower, as both expansive Jupiter and structured Saturn will spend much of 2015 in fire signs. Lucky Jupiter is in theatrical Leo until Aug. 11, bringing out our expressive sides. Meantime, disciplined Saturn will be in abundant Sagittarius, challenging us to discover what "healthy decadence" looks like.
An emphasis on global issues, cross-cultural connections and sustainability will also come with Saturn's tour of the zodiac, especially once Jupiter moves into eco-conscious Virgo, the sign of all things green and clean. Virgo also rules the zodiac's wellness house, and with this year's game-changing eclipses in Virgo (Sept. 13) and holistic/spiritual Pisces (Mar. 20), the global conversation about well-being is sure to be lively.
MindBodyGreen's resident astrologers The AstroTwins, give you the scoop for your sign's health and happiness in 2015:
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19)
More, more, more — that's your 2015 M.O., as abundant Jupiter whirls through Leo, your fifth house of passion, fun and creativity. Your love life or an artistic calling could blossom, and your appetite for adventure is insatiable.
On Aug. 11, Jupiter moves into Virgo, your sixth house of wellness and you'll be inspired to go clean and green.
Great news: serious Saturn ended a (sometimes grueling) five-year run through your partnership house, where you learned some tough but vital lessons about both business and romantic relationships.
On Feb. 20, the celestial lovers Venus and Mars unite in Aries, which could be a huge, heart-opening moment. An Apr. 4 total lunar eclipse in your relationship house could be a decisive moment for commitment — you're either in this or you're out.
Saturn spends the next three years in fellow fire-sign Sagittarius, your ninth house of higher education, travel and entrepreneurship. Is it time to quit that soul-sucking day job? A total lunar eclipse in your sign on Sept. 27 could send you trekking down a whole new life path.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20)
Home is where the action is. Jupiter is in Leo, your fourth house of home, family and emotional foundations. Your household becomes a hive of inspiration and bountiful growth. You could become a parent or adopt a pet.
You might set up a home-based business, create a yoga and meditation area, and even tackle home renovation or ownership. Sensual Tauruses love to eat, and you could get into cooking, dehydrating and juicing. The Apr. 4 total lunar eclipse puts a spotlight on your habits and well-being.
Meantime, structured Saturn spends the next three years in Sagittarius, your eighth house of healing. It's time to dive deep and deconstruct any emotional blocks, perhaps working with a therapist or coach. This house rules intimacy and sex, so learn to be emotionally vulnerable.
A joint business venture, real estate or an investment could pay off, but you must take a slow and steady approach.
GEMINI (May 21-Jun. 20)
Saturn has begun a three-year run through Sagittarius, bringing maturity and structure to your closest partnerships. Meanwhile, Jupiter is in Leo, your interactive third house, until Aug.11. As the sign of the Twins, you're in your element — steep yourself in inspiring friendships, conversations, ideas and relationships. Start a blog, write a book or create your own podcast. Use apps to support your wellness goals.
This year is also about being a better listener — a vital skill for your talkative sign. With Jupiter in your communication house, this is a great time to practice some new dialogue techniques.
Saturn will also put the brakes on any flaky relationships — or on your own ambivalence around commitment (nobody can flip-flop like a Gemini!). Be mindful of the moods of people around you. Would you rather soak up someone's cranky vibes, or be uplifted? We can't always control who's around us, so remember to shield your energy field.
Ready to nest? After Aug. 11, Jupiter moves into Virgo — your home and family sign. You may relocate, spend more time with family or start your own brood.
CANCER (Jun. 21-Jul. 22)
Saturn is marching through Sagittarius, your sixth house of health and fitness, for the next three years. You're on a mission to break through resistance and organize your life around amazing self-care. Saturn pushes you to prioritize your commitments in order to make your soul sing.
Experts are Saturn's forte, so this is a great year to work with closely with a reliable life coach, a trainer or a holistic health counselor. The sixth house rules the digestive system, so pay special attention to gut health. Take a daily probiotic, and try a juice cleanse, or colon hydrotherapy.
The Apr. 4 lunar eclipse could bring a move, a pregnancy or changes in your family structure.
Jupiter is in Leo, your second house of work, money and values. Your confidence is on the rise, inspiring you to pursue activities and relationships that affirm and validate your worth. An entrepreneurial idea could attract financial backing.
The Sept. 27 Aries lunar eclipse could bring a landmark career moment. The year is also bookended by two Cancer full moons (Jan. 4 and Dec. 25).
LEO (Jul. 23-Aug. 22)
Jupiter only visits your sign once every 12 years, so this is major. Your star is ascending, Leo — savor the moment. A personal project or initiative might really start to take off. Leave your comfort zone far behind and the stars will reward you for taking bold risks.
Leos are born romantics, but this year is for celebrating your independence, too. Saturn is in Sagittarius, your fifth house of love, creativity and self-expression. An artistic talent could put your name on the map. You'll also become more discerning about romantic partners, taking serious steps in your love life.
If you've battled a food addiction, or a tendency to swing from self-denial to overindulging, think of your appetite as a metaphor. What else in your life are you "hungry" for, Leo: affection, creative fulfillment, deeper bonds? You'll have a chance to explore that when Jupiter and harmonious Venus align in Leo on Jul. 1st.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
Letting go isn't easy for your detail-driven sign. But this year is all about surrender, at least while expansive Jupiter visits Leo and your twelfth house of healing, closure and transitions until Aug.11. Relax. Paint. Dance. Ramp up a meditation or yoga practice or work with an energy healer. Go deep and work on forgiveness and finally release yourself from those imprisoning grudges.
Declutter and sort out what comes into the next exciting phase of your life, when Jupiter moves into your sign mid-August for the first time in over a decade. Sept. 13, marks a solar (new moon) eclipse in Virgo, which will set off a bold new chapter.
Meantime, Saturn spends the next three years in Sagittarius, your fourth house of home, family and emotional foundations. Your relationship with your mother or a key female could evolve. A romantic or business relationship could soar to new levels on Mar. 20, when a Pisces solar eclipse lights up your partnership house.
You could also get serious about your living situation, starting a family or committing to regular self-care. Virgo rules the digestive system and yours can be extra sensitive now, especially to dairy or gluten.
If you're female, build in prevention against breast and ovarian cancer (the fourth house rules all things feminine). A Vitamin B12 shot can also help boost you're mood when you're feeling down.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
This is a year to connect with your tribe and join forces with an eclectic group of forward-thinking people around a shared mission. Jupiter is in Leo, your eleventh house of teamwork and technology, until Aug. 11. You'll get your best results with group fitness classes, team sports and challenges.
Your Libran sense of fairness is also piqued. You might get involved in a political cause or take a leadership role in a social justice group. The Apr. 4 Libra total lunar eclipse could bring a breakthrough around a personal initiative.
With expansive Jupiter in this technological zone, refine what you share about yourself, especially if you're guilty of posting one too many selfies. Or, make an effort to get more tech-savvy. Be smarter about your media usage, too, maybe limiting your online/screen time.
Structured Saturn spends the next three years in Sagittarius, your communication house. Libra, you can be a people pleaser, but it's time to say what you mean and mean what you say — you'll strengthen your relationships by being honest and transparent.
After Aug. 11, Jupiter decamps to your twelfth house of rest for 13 months. You're at the end of a long, 12-year cycle, preparing for a new one that will begin on Sept. 9, 2016, when Jupiter enters Libra. Until then, focus on healing, forgiveness and tying up loose ends.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Lofty Jupiter is soaring through Leo, your tenth house of career, ambition and long-term goals, until Aug. 11. You might be carrying some new responsibilities or playing a leadership role because your sign likes to be in charge.
If you don't feel like you're on your path yet, Jupiter encourages you to step outside your comfort zone and take a risk. The tenth house rules fathers and men, so a male could play an important role in your life. Your relationship with your dad could evolve this year.
Your competitive nature is stoked, too. You might get into hiking, rock climbing, outdoor runs, or sign up for an athletic challenge. Stock up on superfoods to boost your performance, and work with a coach or trainer to keep on top of your goals.
The best news? You've just been relieved of the weight of heavy Saturn, which only comes to your sign every 28-30 years. Its visit may have forced you to completely restructure a part of your life, and to learn how to stand on your own.
Now, Saturn spends the next three years in Sagittarius, your house of work, money and daily routines. Make sure your schedule, spending habits and routines are built around what matters most to you.
The sensual second house also activates your five senses. Balance your system with Bach flowers and use aromatherapy. Book regular massages and choose natural fabrics for your linens and clothing.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Stern Saturn is in your sign for the next three years, kicking off a slow and steady revamp of your personal identity. You're building a foundation for the next 28 years, and while your impatient sign likes to speed through the process, you're going to have to take it one step at a time.
This year, you could be recognized as an expert or an industry leader. Simplify and prioritize. Your new mantra: less is more.
Saturn also rules the skeletal system, teeth and aging, so increase your calcium intake to preserve bone density. Maintain your glow with organic skincare products. Fight free radicals with alkalizing green juice and an antioxidant-rich diet.
Need a lifestyle overhaul? Consider working with a coach or an expert to help you create a sustainable and inspiring plan.
Don't worry, there's plenty of adventure to enjoy in 2015. Your ruler, lucky Jupiter, is in Leo and your bountiful ninth house of travel, study and expansion until August 11. Fitness and fresh air are a lovely combination, so head outdoors for hiking, kayaking, surfing, snowboarding. An entrepreneurial venture could soar.
On Aug. 11, Jupiter will move into Virgo and your career sector for 13 months. One of your visionary ideas from earlier in the year could become a viable business venture, especially near the Sept. 13 Virgo solar eclipse.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Expansive Jupiter is in Leo, your eighth house of intimacy, vulnerability and joint ventures, until Aug. 11. It's time to let your heart and soul act as your GPS, instead of navigating with left-brained logic. Follow your intuition.
In fact, you could have a few mystical experiences this year, perhaps in the form of serendipities and "signs" that affirm you're on (or off) your path. If you're on a self-improvement or health kick, take the approach that "as within, so without."
Some Capricorns may get engaged, invest in real estate, move in together, have children or create a shared business venture this year. If you're already spoken for, you might enjoy a sexual renaissance or awakening.
This is also an excellent year for investing or multiplying your money. The Apr. 4 total lunar eclipse could bring a thrilling career high point.
The twelfth house is a highly spiritual zone, and disciplined Saturn could help you get serious about a meditation practice or pursue certification as a healer. If you dealt with a loss recently, you may need to experience the grieving process. If you're in the role of caretaker, be sure to get your own needs met, too and set up clear boundaries in your relationships.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You're the zodiac's nomad and free spirit, happiest when in a crowd or surrounded by 50 of your closest friends. Commitment can feel like a burden that limits your bohemian exploration. As much as you crave companionship, you don't always like predictability.
But this year, adventurous Jupiter will spend the next couple years in the most partnership-driven zones of your chart. One or two key people could get the lion's share of your attention, and you might find that you become a lot more discerning about who's in your inner circle.
When it comes to your well-being, a workout buddy or an accountability, a partner could keep you on track. Or, you might enroll in private sessions with a trainer or wellness coach. The personal, undivided attention can get you great results.
Don't worry, you'll have plenty of solo moments, too. This year features two new moons in Aquarius on Jan. 20 and Feb. 18, helping you start fresh with an inspired new attitude. Set clear intentions on these two powerful dates.
Meantime, structured Saturn just ended a tough two-year run through Scorpio, your tenth house of discipline and long-term goals. Sticking to a routine may have felt like a grueling task.
For the next three years, Saturn is in Sagittarius, your eleventh house of teamwork, technology and humanitarian efforts. Tap into the power of many to make a difference, or to develop one of your progressive ideas.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
Expansive Jupiter is in Leo, your sixth house of well-being and service, until Aug. 11. You're inspired to get healthy and fit this year, and to make a difference — you might even combine travel or study with your pursuits.
The sixth house also urges you to simplify, so you may spend time pruning back all of the clutter in your physical space, not to mention your schedule.
That said, since the sixth house rules perfectionism, body image can become an issue. Pull away from the Photoshopped models and "fitspiration" images if you start to obsess. Just make sure you're having fun and enjoying the challenge, not comparing yourself.
Because you can be a bit anxious this year, you may also find yourself reaching for "stress foods" or emotionally eating. Look deeper: what are your cravings telling you? Maybe you're pushing yourself past the point of exhaustion and need more balance.
For the next three years, disciplined Saturn is in Sagittarius, your tenth house of career and long-term goals. At times, you can get so focused on building for the future that you forget to live in the moment. Pace yourself, and you can enjoy a slow and steady ascent to the top of your game.
Circle Mar. 20 for a moment of major reinvention. A Pisces Supermoon and solar eclipse could open a major new life chapter.
