Hey, star-struck writers! I paid a visit to Astrology.com to figure out what you can expect this year in writing. I’m trying my hand at predicting your future. Ready to see what tomorrow brings? Check this out!
Aries: You’re about to see some major rewards for all your hard work, with the Solar Eclipse in March likely to speed up the timetable to your success. I know you’re impatient, but try not to take any short cuts and short change yourself. With Pluto in the Tenth House of your career, you’ll have all the power and energy you need to meet your goals. Is that novel finished, yet? Alright, Ram, get it edited and get ready to make your mark.
Taurus: You may have thought of writing as a hobby, but there are new opportunities waiting to serendipitously be illuminated. This could be your dream job! However, don’t worry about that right now because this is your year for romance. Ooh, la, la! ❤ Look for things to trudge along in the career department. Just keep an eye out for those openings that can change your life. They’re out there.
Gemini: Gemini—you glamorous, artistic, creative genius—can you say ‘career satisfaction’? Because, if you’re a writer, that’s what you have to look forward to later this year! That crazy idea you’ve been telling yourself is a pipe dream is on the verge of coming to fruition. Word of warning, though: Your honesty will trump diplomacy at some point, and working with others might not be your strong suit this year.
Cancer: Let’s talk conflict. There might be a little of that this year. Expect to bump heads with superiors and fight with your editors. You’ll likely take a hit to your pocket as well, but the key to success is to present the image of a success while you work your way through these problems. The good news is you’ll have energy to spare. Just go with the flow and try to keep your head above water.
Leo: This is a good year to be creative. You’re going to spend the better part of 2016 coming up with some of your best ideas, and with your ambition, you’ve got the confidence to take some risks. With the September eclipse, those ideas might bestow major blessings. You might see some financial increases and not necessarily from your normal paycheck. Is writing something you do on the side? Because it’s probably about to start paying off big time.
Virgo: Of all the signs, this year is your year, but you might have too many things going on in your personal life to fully focus on writing. Expect your ambition to be up and down. With an eclipse imbuing you with extra creativity in September, your writing will be more robust than ever; however, a blast from the past could curtail you. Despite all this, 2016 marks a turning point in your writing career. Are you ready for it?
Libra: You’re fun-loving, and your writing career hasn’t been all that fun lately, but around March you’ll see some transitions in your writing life that could be great for you. This year, you’re going to have more energy than ever. Your finances, which have been in the doldrums for the past few years, are about to see an increase, and you’ll soon begin a new cycle in life with maybe even travel plans in the cards. So, don’t worry! Things are about to balance out.
Scorpio: It’s been tough. You’re not making the money you thought you’d be making. You’re thinking about giving up writing, but I think it’s important to keep doing what you love and not let your insecurities get the best of you because this year is all about self-expression and showcasing your creative side. Not to mention, you’ll soon be in a better financial position. The answers you’re looking for are right up ahead as long as you don’t get too impulsive. Stick to it.
Sagittarius: Looking for excitement? If you’ve been holding off on doing something different in your writing career, now is the time to do it. It’s time to go full speed ahead and tackle your goals. Whether you’re thinking about raising your rate-per-word or planning to change everything about how you write, do it now! You might not get another major crossroads like this for a long time.
Capricorn: Let’s talk expansion, my ambitious friend. Think chief editor instead of lowly writer. You’re about to be doing a lot of networking, meeting some influential people and making connections like you’ve never done before. You’ll get exposed to a different career perspective that makes you want to switch gears, and you know what? It’s time. Open up to the possibilities, boss. 😉
Aquarius: Finally, your life as writer has reached a place of stability. You’re incredibly satisfied with your work life, and things are exactly where you want them to be. But for you, Aquarius, that probably means you’re ready for a new and exciting challenge. This is a year of new ambitions, and it’s a good time to share your ideas with others. Maybe pull together a group of your colleagues and start a new project. With two eclipses this years, you’re about to be very financially stable and see a boost in your income. It’s a great opportunity to invest in creative ventures.
Pisces: You may feel like you’re on top of the world these days, Pisces. Indeed, your writing career is more successful than ever. However, be ready to put in some more elbow grease this year as a change higher up has a trickle-down effect on what you do. You’ll have plenty of energy to tackle whatever comes, and you’ve actually been wanting a challenge. That excitement plays second fiddle to the real star of your year. This is also your year for romance. You’re unstoppable in 2016!
