2016 Intuitive Impressions and Psychic Horoscopes for the Astrological Signs
Be sure to scroll all the way down: there are channeled messages, the tarot, the Speaking Stones, and more.
2016 in a word: “…Whaaa?” As the pictograph states, “out of control” and “things don’t get solved” describe the collective experience: People are surprised, caught off-guard, and incredulous about all sorts of natural and man-made things that occur. However, here are some constructive things that look like they happen:
Re 2015 Paris Climate Change Accord: People feel like it won’t do anything, it won’t be enforced but actually, although at first it’s a way of making money for people, it is a step forward, and can create a foundation that can be built on.
More people take in refugees, once they adjust to the new reality that they’re coming. Acceptance is stronger the second half of the year.
Gun violence laws are put together so it’s a different and better situation in the U.S.
What Americans want from the next administration, is to be given to, and be given a chance to succeed. They want a fair shake and a good deal, and the next President could be a service-oriented Virgo. Bernie Sanders is a Virgo, incredible to believe as that win would be.
(Re: the U.S. 2016 Presidential election first posted on myblogon December 19, 2015) "Unlike every single psychic on the internet, all agreeing Hillary will be the next President, I think the tenor of the times fueled by extreme inequality and growing poverty, could manifest in the more revolutionary move of picking Bernie Sanders. The collective consciousness does not seem to have, at least yet, picked Hillary."
The year begins with Mars in Libra, which as an omen, suggests a power shift and pendulums swinging in a way that makes life more fair. But on January 3rd, Mars moves into Scorpio. Interpretation: Any recent achievements in 2015 must be accompanied by deep and strong follow-through in 2016, to reach the new land we've glimpsed.
2016 Psychic Messages for the Elements and Individual Signs Read Your Sun, Moon, and Rising Signs
Wherever we get to, we are going to have to work for it and keep a narrow focus on what makes us happy. Then we have the necessary energy. Last year, many gifts were given that could create meteoric rises. This year, to create enduring success, we should expect to have to do the work.
A message from your goals, answering the question: “What must each person do to get what they want, what is the appropriate action to take and sacrifice to make?”
Fire signs, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius: What gets you what you want in 2016? Persistence, and staying the course.
Water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces: What gets you what you want in 2016? Keeping your head above water, meaning, pay attention to what you want to grow in your life, not your emotional reactions to things. Do this for the sake of the inner world you want to be in, and the operating state of consciousness you aspire to.
Air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius: What gets you what you want in 2016? Faith in yourself and life; willingness to be happy; being innocent; trying new things; being able to start all over… just like a little kid who wants to play, if he gets knocked down, he gets up quickly so he can get back to the game.
Earth signs, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn: What gets you what you want in 2016? Moving through any setback with maturity. It’s a good year, but not all of it is easy or pleasant. Losses are clearly not the trend of your life; the trend is good. Once you move past any loss or disappointment, there is your wonderful life again!
Your Four Card Tarot Cuts for 2016
Tarot for the Fire signs, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius: Your new ideas are the ones you want to try, the ones you're going to be rewarded for, the ones that expand you, and the ones that are coming to you through new insight. You can connect with a lot more people or a larger world. You feel freer this year. The world is a friendlier place and more willing to engage with you.
Tarot for the Water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces: Your year is spent: evolving, getting to a new place, figuring things out, overcoming restrictions. With strong determination you’re getting somewhere new, and on your way to a new vision.
Tarot for the Air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius: Expect a huge boost of self-confidence this year. You can do new things, but new things that you've already developed skills around or have been working on for awhile. There's a tremendous elation you can feel being on your own, doing whatever represents independence. You feel much better about yourself and are more at peace.
Tarot for the Earth signs, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn: Because of love, or because of some creative thing you love to do, you leave behind a very familiar scenario for what is more fitting for you now. You're concerned about how it's going to affect your life..can you make as much money, can you make this transition? Expect to deal with some kind of stress about it, but basically leaving behind what's familiar is what gives you peace of mind.
2016 Horoscopes for the Individual Zodiac Signs
Aries: You've got your best ideas yet. People have more faith in you...they show this to you through their contracts, commitments, and opportunities you receive. This is a time of cooperation, new enterprises, and new partnerships with people that really get your business going. You get you the help you need. This is a much more solid year than last.
Taurus: Things happen fast this year. You make decisions fast. In the beginning of the year, you change locations or change work or you're in your second home. You're ready to go in the beginning of the year after an iffy-feeling lead-up the last month or two. You might be establishing a new business. Things are very well-thought out; you've made the tough decisions already, and now you're implementing them and establishing yourself and doing what earth signs do well: stabilizing yourself.
Gemini: The concept of being right... being in the right place, acting on your right fate, stays in the forefront this year. It's like you took a gamble...you understand what's right for you and you're much more powerfully implementing it. There's a strong influence from the sun, planet of success and health and making the right choice for your future. You get many more things right about your life and can establish yourself with more confidence: it's clear you've made some important basic right choices.
Cancer: This is a year where things come to a head. This can be a little overwhelming, and you can expect some conflict because of the changes that seem inevitable or are happening to you. But there are some things that must be done. It's like the earth moves right in front of you and you must respect the changes and decisions around them. The unexpected can occur, but everything that's happening is meant to be, and the first step is accepting changing circumstances that may be hard to understand at first. On a high note, you're given a chance to increase your income, be part of a team or institution where you can get more money, and be happier!
Leo: This is the year of inner accomplishment where you gain much more control of your mind. You want your mind to work better, and to achieve inner peace. This is a year where you deal with resistance, and what enables you to move through resistance is a more strongly felt love for life, love for yourself, and love for others. You might go through resistance about getting to what you really want, but you're going to keep on making those important choices that lead to your own fulfillment.
Virgo: Life is a lot clearer for you in 2016. You might get married! You make the right connections and relationships are very good. Something you begin really works! It’s a perfect year to start a new venture. You know where you belong, you know who you belong with, and you know what you belong doing. The Sun smiles on Virgos!
Libra: This is quite a business-like year, but it needs to be because you both want to step up...maybe you want to move, or know more what you want in terms of the material world. You know how to get it: you have to connect up with a certain establishment or business, but it looks like that connection is made and you're able to do better financially in 2016 or by the end of the year.
Scorpio: It's looking like a very creative year! This would be a year that if you wanted to, you could get pregnant and the timing would be good. You have recently disengaged or left situations that allow you to do more of what you want. You're freer, and you're better organized financially and more physically able to be creative and expressive. You might have a very big project that begins later in the year, perhaps October. There might be a lot of build-up to it where you have to get ready for it with concrete steps.
Sagittarius: You can work your way out of any situation. Look at everything as a work in progress: your health, your relationships, and your financial goals. This is a year where there are not big moves on your part, but your work is to just keep things humming along. Still, you could be worried, but for nothing. An even pace is best as you put the work into what you want to achieve. It’s a more even year altogether.
Capricorn: This year you have to give a lot to get what you want. Luckily, you feel strong. There's another possibility that you have to deal with situations that take emotional strength. These will not be your fault; it’s just what happens. This is a good year to have challenges because you're particularly strong in mind, body, and spirit. Things aren't very clear in the beginning of the year to get where you want financially, but give it more time...April is more telling.
Aquarius: You're quite busy in the beginning of the year. You may have been given a big project which make the holidays feel like they are practically an interruption. This is a year where you don't have to ponder too much. You're quite busy doing your part in something that's developing, and inspiring. It looks as if you've got the luxury of being quite involved in your dreams and your potential and not so worried about instability, but focused on the hopeful future.
Pisces: You do a lot of thinking this year. You're moving yourself forward, you're moving your projects forward, but you're also moving partnerships forward and getting used to a new order with partnerships. It's a less touchy-feely year. Things are changed, things are different this year...you're moving towards a different fate, and with partnerships that are more supportive than in the past. This is a year of much greater balance, but maybe more sober-feeling as you move towards a new sense of being settled.
The Magic of a Nine Year
2016 is a nine year, the magic number that when you any number to it, e.g. 5 plus 9, it will always reduce down to the original number: 5. Metaphorically speaking, 2016 as a 9 year teaches that it may look like things are up to others, but they are always up to us. It's the actions you take and the work you put into something that count for the most this year.
Another magic quality is that whatever number you multiply 9 by, the result will reduce back to 9. (9x5 is 45, 4 plus 5 is 9.) Multiplying implies increase (success), and addition implies relationship (learning experiences). The multiplying magic of a 9 year suggests fruition, completion, and its presence in 2016 again says that hard work and excellence pays off this year!
What we do with our time and how committed we are can lead to magic in a 9 year. Out in the world we will see magic tricks on display, great schemes that are both dark and light. In this time, people produce sophisticated plans and resource networks. However, if people continue on a downward course, that commitment can prove to lead to a harsh fate.
Re the challenge of personal transformation: A nine year suggests that the next phase on a positive course is a more whole and magnetic and inspired version of ourselves.
The Speaking Stones on 2016 and Your Personal Journey
Innovation: Many new discoveries and developments, and people come up with radically new solutions for long-standing problems. There is much more cutting away and pivoting away from the past than before.
Peace: In terms of the world all pulling together, the light of understanding is absent; there is no common goal of a lighter world. The fairly new and separatist organizations, like Isis, take root. Their communication systems get tight and together and work very well. Things can spread: Nobody needs to be anywhere anymore. The internet becomes much more of a global tool and weapon.
USA and countries fighting terrorism: We don’t seem to have a cohesive, creative response to what is happening. Past solutions don’t work. The targets of terrorism carried out by Isis and others, are not equipped to coordinate on all kinds of levels: between countries, departments, differing agendas, etc. They do not have the right strong tool.
Teamwork and harmony work wonders in 2016: It can grow terrorism, but positive grass roots movements can also get very far through improved communication and ways of connecting with others. No matter who is in the White House, U.S. grass roots movements coming from the people grow in strength.
2016 for the Fire signs, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius: You will gain the greatest happiness and growth if you have some practice that keeps you in the Now, so you're not worried about the past or the future. 2016 can be the most wildly creative year, and you wouldn’t want to miss it worrying or lost in self-reflection. A life-changing magical act can be to re-order your life so that you are practicing and doing in some way what truly makes you happy. The spirits say: “It requires all of you. Embrace, then, your creative spontaneous self…give it the floor – and then give it some more! Then you can know Heaven on Earth.”
2016 for the Water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces: You can experience separation between you and people in your life because of natural developments and personal growth. The emerging truth will feel like the lighter path. A paradigm shift is in the offing, an adjustment that serves you well for years to come.
2016 for the Air signs, Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius: 2016 is a year of inner gains: your greater emotional and psychological strength allows you to move on. Now you more easily accept things and view the truth as helping you. Nothing is more important than this new awareness as its reward is greater peace of mind.
2016 for the Earth signs, Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn: Basically, 2016 is a year of increase, with positive events occurring on both inner and outer levels. It feels to you like going further and higher than you’ve ever gone before. You gain a new sense of stability for many reasons; ultimately lightening your nature so a much more flexible, sensitive, porous you gets ready for new instructions…arriving in 2019. Now begins the journey…you might be wondering what you’re planning for. All you can know is what feels right. You’re planning for a future that at this point is a series of desires, longings, and beckonings. Follow your heart and on every plane, you’ll like the results.
Navigating the Four Mercury Retrogrades of 2016
The first mercury retrograde of the year could feel like a short three weeks, January 5th -25th. To take advantage, plan what you want to clean up, clear out, get straight, and review. It will be action-packed…keep it tightly orchestrated so it goes your way!
The second Mercury retrograde is April 28th –May 23rd. A good time for a vacation and Cinco de Mayo celebrations! It will seem like a long three weeks. A lot happens to people in this period and they’ll be digesting and processing it for awhile. In the middle of it, there’s a rare lucky day when the Sun conjuncts Mercury in Cancer and Jupiter goes direct: May 9th. On that Monday, you can have deep and clear understandings that release you into an expansive forward motion. This is a good day to get things cleared up and move on.
There’s a “Friday the 13th” during this second Mercury retrograde, which turns out to be Stephen Colbert’s birthday according to my calendar. If it’s your birthday too, Mercury conjuncts Venus on that day: expect to have an especially creative year. It’s a very good night for anyone to go out on a date, have a good time, and find love! (…for Stephen Colbert, his birthday retrograde means his show will be a giant success in 2017, compared to 2016.)
Last but not least in this Mercury retrograde period, there’s a full moon in Sagittarius on Armed Forces Day, Saturday, May 21st. The moon is conjunct Mars; it can be a great party night but this aspect also incites warlike actions. It’s a highly reactive time, when people can misread cues. It’s best to be a laid-back person and sail through others’ inconsistencies…choose to enjoy people and have fun that weekend.
The third Mercury retrograde is August 29th through September 22nd, and this is going to complicate back-to-school preparations and kids getting used to what’s new. Be generous with others and forgive them their mis-steps because it’s very easy to be nit-picky during this period. The best use of the time is focus on what you want to begin, grow, and perfect, but only for yourself!
The last Mercury retro of the year is December 19th to January 8 2017, starting right before the Winter Solstice, the day that is the omen-giver for the coming year. This last retrograde indicates that the coming year will be about creating greater balance and justice, by initiating a lot of corrective efforts.
January 2015 Horoscopes and Predictions for the Year
I can't tell you anything too cheerful because I've spent New Years nursing a cold, but I hope to entertain you with what I've been reading while lying here: "Edgar Cayce on Religion and Psychic Experience", which details some of the world's greatest psychic's amazing feats. Cayce was unique in the scope and detail of what he could see while in a hypnotic trance. Once, instead of ending his trance session in the customary way that his staff was used to, he indicated there was one more reading to do, and began doing a reading for someone who was not on the day's lsit. It was for a girl away at college whose mother was known to the Cayces, who had fallen off her dorm bed and needed medical attention. Cayce described the situation and the kind of care she needed. The people in the room immediately called the girl's mother, who didn't know anything about it - but it turned out to be true, and Cayce's reading was very helpful in that emergency. (Sadly in his own life, Cayce was not able to follow the stark and accurate guidance he got to cut down on his daily sessions or it would kill him.)
Cayce believed that nobody has to have extra special perception to be successful or spiritually fulfilled, they just had to listen to what rang clear within them. "Be true to the best you know, and the next will be given to you." was was all one needed to know. That's great advice for twisty-turny 2015! To not need to know but to be true to one's changing self and see where it takes one. Although I hope to see some of you in my reading room here in Santa Fe...
Happy New Year! Love, Elissa

Intuitive Impressions of 2015
Experiences in 2015 can be jolting, and lots of little mistakes made. Ignore them! And everybody else's bloopers too...you will have a much better time. The atmosphere is less pressured the second half of this changing, moving year. Ultimately your consciousness will rise, and so will the collective's. Many have a change of course.
Work hard and on faith until February, time of Aquarius. With creative projects, you have to be okay with rehearsal, repetition, and making a consistent effort for a couple of months.
Expect that important goals can take awhile. Perseverance is needed before there's a big breakthrough (with many likely in August); never give up!
"Freedom" is an even stronger rallying cry than in 2014, and there are also more bans lifted and more freedom allowed. It becomes easier to breathe if you're different. Human rights groups get stronger but extremists in many forms continue their own savage course, and a lot of people die in battles. Police in police states and U.S.A. continue their aggression.
What to make of all of it...just keep moving forward and don't give up on your dreams!
2015 defies pat descriptions because what defines it is its fluidity. Positive or negative, great energy flows into whatever you're creating, and you'll produce a lot of it. The changing, moving power of 2015 is yours to do whatever you want with. Heed the inner messages you get to let go of things...that's how you get somewhere new.
Outgoing 2014 gives you a healing visualization to begin the New Year: "Looking back, it asks you to:
"...Only recognize you have changed, and you're more self-aware and it matters not one whit what went into that change. It is done, the growth experiences served their purpose and you need not look back through those perspectives. Don't wait until you think you're ready...right this moment, stumble, stride, or walk into the New Year, feel yourself to be more stronger for whatever you went through in the past, and see your future self in front of you, way down the road, waving and happy that you are arriving at a surer, happier place by the end of the year. Happy New Year!"
Psychic Horoscopes for 2015 - Read your Sun, Moon, and Rising Signs
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Fire signs: You make decisions based on feelings and how wonderful you imagine something might be, but these are mutable signs meaning be good and sure before you make a commitment based on expectations.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water signs: This year requires fortitude and endurance for the changes you want to see. Some things must be given up to reach your goals. Let your strong feelings rise to the occasion!
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air signs: The most important thing about making decisions is that you feel that there's a match between what you're moving towards and signing up for, and your capacity for it: you have to be ready for something. Do not overload your life or you'll be more aware of pressure than the accomplishments.
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Earth signs: There's a big surprise for earth signs! Those of you who have worked hard for it, get something they really want. You can have a plan that brings more harmony to your life and includes those you love.
Aries: It's not advisable to try to expand this year, something might be "less-than" or produce a diminished return; in some way you have to heed limits. What you want to have, own, or do takes awhile, or is delayed. Nevertheless, you find yourself in new spaces, being more on a cutting edge, showing the world what you can do.
Taurus wants a healing in their heart. There can be a lot of excitement and a lot of uncertainty about what you're planning, so you just gotta trust and wait it out if it goes slow. Ultimately, this year's goals are to end you up settled, serene, and soothed.
Gemini: You have big ideas and your heart is in the right place, but watch the tendency to take on more than is physically and emotionally comfortable. Make it a point to listen to your body this year! You might be working through some illusions and getting to what is truly comfortable for you.
Cancer: Cancer could be in very unfamiliar territory but it stills feels right to enter into it, and the best way is whole-heartedly. There's something exciting and a little dangerous about your direction this year!
Leo: You're feeling better, more self-aware, and more content with your life and its direction. You know more what you're going for, what you're doing...your ideas are better for yourself and there are better opportunities. It's a year of moving in a more known and desired direction.
Virgo: Your emotional well-being increases although it does look like there are changes in your emotional life. Success flows more easily to you and you're able to set up things much better, after a change more in the beginning of the year. You can make successful business changes and location changes this year.
Libra: Are you more alone than usual? Make good use of alone time, don't wonder about it. Signs suggests that it's a hands-on year of making things happen, but there are delays or periods in which you're not able to forward something or work on your idea or it takes awhile to get approval...you could be slowed down, in which case, make good use of your time!
Scorpio: Specific life directions are kind of murky but clearly changing. You are more sure of something being true, love being there..and you being able to do what you want to do. Something significant works out for you this year.
Sagittarius: You are loving life more. willing to learn and willing to dance. Recent times have made you stronger and streetwise. Travel solves some issues for you too, as well as marking the end of one chapter and beginning a new. The year is about expanding in some new direction, and the fun of learning, and reconnecting with a healthier lifestyle.
Capricorn: Work is particularly enjoyable and takes you to great places. You are happy with other people and have closer emotional encounters. You are also looking for new ways to present yourself, and will find new angles to your career. Most important is that you take care of yourself-your health and well-being. In relationships, be willing to compromise.
Aquarius: With more self-confidence now, you can come into your own, and the fulfillment is very gratifying. Watch your temper, though...you get angry sometimes! You could be getting ready for a new role and judging everything from a new reality that's not quite here yet, but is on its way. A lot of questions get answered after February. Also, you could hit the jackpot financially.
Pisces: This year has a "before" and "after", and "after", you will feel much better! You continue further, deeper, and more truly in the direction you've been going creatively. It's pioneering and very fun because you're in learning phases, and you don't really have to make big decisions, yet. It's a good year for partnering creatively with people and finding new outlets, new connections, and new ways to further your creative goals. Go to an island if you can.
Although it thought it was a major feat to produce the January 2015 newsletter while mostly sick as a dog, I did leave out quite a few messages. Here are a few more insights about the year:
Prosperity in 2015: Success comes most easily from bringing to fruition things that have already started. Successful productions are well-crafted and sustainable. Successful actions include more networking, and getting more into your community professionally, and finding what’s more fruitful right where you’re at. Success comes through moderation, including branching out to incorporate new things and create a more well-rounded life.
For those alone and/or starting over in some important way: You are also moving into freedom, and that is the right, feel-good direction to be going in 2015. Notice first that your feelings are stronger about what is right and wrong for you. That’s what you’re given first to guide you, your inner sense. Your life plans will become clearer and grow in structure so that by August, you have a better idea of where things are going. Expect that a good part of this year is a process to ultimately stabilize you and make your income source clearer. You are given your stronger feelings to trust, and that’s all you need at first, is a response from your inner self, the voice you are learning to trust and have faith in. This voice can prompt you more strongly now. Its most important job is to guide, nudge, and lead you to what will uniquely fulfill you and make you happy. Spend some time daily listening to what your inner guidance gives you to pay attention to, and know it can interrupt your day at any time to let you know something helpful – that is its job, also. You can trust your wise inner self, but you can make it much more useful by asking for its guidance and exercising it. Spend a few minutes asking for guidance followed by a few minutes of being receptive to any new ideas or insights. (Guided meditations help you contact your inner self.)
The year begins with a full moon, which makes people “feel their feelings” more acutely. Especially during a full moon, but for the whole year, expect that:
It’s a roller coaster year depending on what train of thought you’re on: if you’re feeling down, don’t worry, things will switch into a positive cycle. The year beginning with a full moon indicates people have big ambitions for emotional fulfillment and to change their emotional wiring, so expect some up and down moods.
Things just fly off in 2015 that don’t belong.
It can be dangerous to speak before you think. Think before speaking because words can be the beginning of an avalanche of consequences.
Rectification: Don’t go there, and try to reclaim something from the past. Don’t try to go back to fix anything.
Livelihood changes involve an awful lot of workings and doings that don’t really ground themselves in reality until August through October, with strong indications of success in August. This calls for faith, listening to the voice within.
USA: For some reason more significant change is wrought in this year than many others. Things might go better than expected for President Obama. (My 2014 prediction for him was accurate, but it’s hard to imagine this one is.)
Key words for Gemini: Do Not Rush. Stay Even (on an even keel). Focus on healing. Contemplate beautiful sunsets.
Key words for Cancer: At the beginning. “Yay, I’m free!” “Oh boy, and I get to be me!”
Key words for Leo: Being alone. Happier. Equilibrium.
