AquariusThe New Year in 2016 will say hello to Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius on January 5th, and the planet will station direct on January 25th in Capricorn. What do the stars reveal for this intense astrological period? Jacy Nova, our psychic-astrologer for Astrochicks, weighs in on this intense planetary period holds for you and the Election 2016 when Pandora’s Box is opened.

Astrologically, the planet Mercury rules the mind and communication. Where Mercury lives in your astrology chart shows how you learn, think, communicate and connect with others.

Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius will open up Pandora’s box and reveal people’s true agendas. Don’t be surprised if one of your friends or family members is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. January is going to being a very EYE-OPENING experience for many people.

This planetary transit will invite you to think outside the box. Family, co-workers and friends will be more outspoken in their opinions, and it could bring unexpected outbursts. During a Mercury Retrograde transit, we recommend that you DON’t sign any legal documents, make any life altering decisions or start new projects. Mercury Retrograde is meant to be a period of reflection and planning; you can start fresh in February after it has gone direct.

Jacy Nova astrologically predicts the next three weeks will be an intense period of power struggles, and harsh truths.The Sun conjunct Pluto in Capricorn will fuel action for Earth signs Virgo, Capricorn and Taurus. Now, is the time to reflect on past projects and think about resolving old conflicts. The stars are in your favor, and Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius will encourage you to be non-emotional and use creative problem solving to move forward.

In the public arena, the political landscape will get heated in January 2016. As we previously predicted, Ben Carson a Virgo has hit a snag in his presidential campaign for the White House. It was reported that his campaign manager and 20 other staff members have quit. We believe that Ben Carson will say bye, bye to Election 2016 in February. Where does that leave the other Election 2016 candidates?

Donald Trump a Gemini and Ted Cruz a Sagittarius/Capricorn will feel confident as Iowa, and New Hampshire polls will continue to show both presidential candidates as the clear leaders in Election 2016. Hillary Clinton’s campaign can expect to hit a bump in the road in late January 2016, and Bernie Sanders’s numbers will continue to rise with voters under 30. Our Election 2016 campaign predictions is Hillary is NOT a shoo in for the White House.

The theme for Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius and Capricorn this January is an intense power struggle and people attempting to gain control. On a personal and professional level, you can expect underhand tactics such as manipulation and drama this month. The good news is you can breathe a sigh of relief after January 25th and make new plans for February. Remember, everything happens for a reason and change always brings new opportunities.
