And though many people don’t put stock into horoscopes and astrology, sometimes, those kooky predictions can be surprisingly spot on.
If you’ve made any resolutions, these insights might help you think of a way to stick to them — or maybe they’ll help you make some resolutions you didn’t even know you needed!
Just like 2015?s astrological predictions, these 2016 horoscopes take into consideration the unique traits of the signs and show you how to use those traits to solve the problems that come your way.
But if you think astrology is a lot of superstitious hooey? Just treat them as a thought exercise; as a lens through which you’re viewing a specific issue. Looking at things a different way often yields some surprising results!
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
It’s in your nature to be sensitive and creative, but sometimes, those traits can make things seem overwhelming, and you feel like you can’t do anything at all.
When you feel stressed, remember that your sensitivity to what’s happening around you is a great asset in determining what’s really going on, and your creativity will help you find a great, if nontraditional, solution!
This year, your unique way of thinking will solve a problem no one else can — leading to an incredible opportunity you didn’t see coming. Embrace this change, Pisces, and have confidence in your abilities! This is going to be your best year yet.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
Aquarians are known for being clinical and thoughtful. That’s great for navigating through issues, big and small.
It’s why everyone turns to you for advice.
But be careful, sometimes you’ll wind up thinking too much, and that can prevent you from taking action until it’s too late, and complicating things that are actually much simpler than they appear.
This year is one of great change for you, Aquarius, but in all the right ways. All those balls in the air will finally fall into place, and your life will regain its stability and peace. You will finally be in the right place to achieve all you’ve been meaning to.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
You’re fiercely loyal and you want to make all of your loved ones happy, but sometimes managing those relationships — and letting your loved ones make their own choices — can be hard.
Remember that sometimes, giving someone a bit of space and trusting them to make their own decisions is, actually, the best way to support them.
And because of how much you care, you’ll reconnect with someone very special this year — but it might not necessarily be another person; you might finally reconnect with yourself. This is finally going to be your year, Capricorn, so embrace it with your whole heart.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
You’ve always been multifaceted, Sagittarius, but lately you might be feeling like everything is a bit much, and you might be wondering how to handle all the different aspects of your life you’ve acquired over the years.
Don’t worry, you’ll be fine! It’s just important to remember everything you’ve already been through, and how much awesomeness you’ve pulled off over the years. Channel that and you’ll be just fine.
You’ll be asked to draw on your inner strength this year with a unique challenge, and you’ll rise to the occasion. You are strong and intelligent, even though you often forget that. 2016 will be the year in which you remember just how capable you are, Sagittarius. It will make all the difference.
Scorpio (October 24 to November 21)
You’re passionate and you follow your desires, that’s for sure! But sometimes those intense, lofty desires get in the way of the real stuff happening back down on Earth.
As you go through this year, try thinking about how your actions and decisions affect those around you. You might not think anything you do affects other people, but it really does!
This year, the mistake you thought you made will have some surprisingly positive results. You will grow from the past, learning things about yourself you never thought possible. 2016 is the year of your awakening — and it will be beautiful, Scorpio. Explore it and see just how high you can climb.
Libra (September 22 to October 23)
Things seem like they’re changing a mile a minute and then abruptly stagnating, right, Libra? Take a deep breath.
Everything’s going fine.
That’s not to say you should coast, though. 2016 will have plenty of new challenges you’ll have to meet, so stay on your toes. Take the slow times to think, and the fast times to act.
You’ll see a lot of change this year, and while it might seem scary, it’s going to work out wonderfully. Change brings new life, new opportunity, new experiences — making 2016 one of your most memorable years yet, Libra!
Virgo (August 23 to September 21)
When people tell you to relax and stop worrying, you’re the person who looks at them like they’re crazy. Of course you need to worry! How else will you make sure every single thing is in order?
Well, actually, you don’t! There’s plenty you can control, and you’re holding those things down super-well! But there’s also plenty you can’t control, so you need to learn to let that stuff go.
This year, you’ll let go of something you thought you needed to hold onto, and you’ll feel so much better. Releasing the past is going to release the person you’ve kept locked away for so long. Look forward to this year, Virgo, as it’s going to be a cleansing one.
Leo (July 23 to August 22)
You’re all about surrounding yourself with friends and family and having a good time, but as the year progresses, you might find that something seems to be missing.
Pay attention to that missing piece, because it might be the thing that you need to feel more complete. Maybe it’s a friend or relative you haven’t seen in a while, or maybe it’s something less tangible.
In 2016, you’ll find a missing piece, and feel your life become more complete. Whether it comes in the form of a friend, job opportunity, or romantic interest, this missing piece is going to send your heart soaring, Leo. Prepare for new adventures and experiences.
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
Sometimes it seems like it’s all gone too fast. Where did 2015 go? You sometimes find yourself thinking that you’ve missed out on something, or that you’re not taking the time to appreciate the present.
In fact, though, all that worrying is the thing getting in the way of your appreciation of the present. Stay in the moment and let things come and you’ll find yourself feeling much calmer — and making even more great memories!
Embrace the future, Cancer, because 2016 is going to finally make things right again. You’ve been struggling for some time, but those worries will soon be a distant memory. Get excited, because good things are finally on the way.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
You’re the one who gets the calls from the friends who have a problem and need a sympathetic ear. And you’re really good at it! You have the ability to make people feel better just by listening. That’s a valuable skill.
Just be careful not to let the needs of others eclipse your own. You need to listen to yourself, too!
This year, you’ll find that listening to your own needs will bring about a change you really need. Your eyes will open to a problem you didn’t even know you had, resulting in great change and awakening. It’s a year of growth and exploration for you, Gemini.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
You have how you like your life to be all plotted out, and you’re staying the course. You’re steady and unwavering in what you like, and what you don’t, and you’re very good at letting people know your preferences.
This year, though, you might want to consider branching out. Your way has worked out for you, but there’s a whole world of new things out there, and exploring them never hurts. At the very least, you’ll be all the more sure of what you like!
You’ve been yearning for change, Taurus, and in 2016 you will have it. Listen to your heart, take the advice of loved ones, and make yourself a priority. It will make all the difference. This is your year of balance and motion. Go with your whole heart.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
The competitive edge that runs through Aries people never really goes away. You always strive to be the best at everything, to get the highest score, the best results, and to prove yourself right.
But that edge can also alienate people, often without your even realizing it. In 2016, pay attention to what you say and how you say it, because people take your words very seriously.
This year, your words will make someone unexpectedly happy, and a great relationship will be strengthened. Your life will become rich and exciting in ways you never thought possible, and all because you took the time to care. Follow your natural compassion, Aries, and you will never be led astray.
