Leo 2016 year ahead

Career success is a big focus for the year ahead. Financially things are very positive at this time. You are determined to be successful in your personal capacity. You are driven to achieve your goals and can be single-minded in this pursuit.

Much of your personal focus is your work and career direction or your goals and aspirations. There may be certain things that are not satisfactory in your work routine and this may affect your health and well-being. Be sure not to get bogged down with unnecessary details that take your eye off the ball. You may however want to look behind the scenes – perhaps things are not what they seem on the surface. Are you being deceived in some way?

It is a significant time in terms of your personal relationship. You may be determined to find the right partner if you are not in a relationship. There may be some surprises or things could unfold quickly in this area of your life.

Be mindful that if you are only focussed on career success your personal relationship will suffer and may hit a rocky patch.

Oscar Pistorius re-sentenced

Oscar Pistorius was re-sentenced on 6 July for the murder of Reeva Steenkamp and was given a 6 year sentence. The legal process has taken time to reach this conclusion.

I looked back at what I wrote in Dec 2015.

” Saturn return – 29 years of age – Dec 2015 to Sep 2016
This is a testing time for Oscar. Friendships will be under pressure – will his old friends be there for him? Will some fall by the wayside?
Saturn is ruler of 12th house – prison. Saturn is a malefic planet and associated with restrictions and boundaries. His freedom will be tested for sure. Does he end up back in prison? Distinct possibility.
Saturn is also associated with duty and responsibility – this is the time in his life where he will need to take responsibility for his actions. Saturn is also ruler of his Ascendant – himself. This is a time of reckoning for Oscar.”

And so it has come to be that he finds himself behind bars serving his sentence and taking responsibility for what he did.

It is interesting to note that in 2013 when the incident occurred, transiting Saturn was making a conjunction to Venus, Pluto and his MC – all planets that talk about his career abroad and legal matters. This process unfolded from Nov 2012 to Sep 2013. Saturn is limiting by nature and is associated with endings and responsibility. This literally defines the period where he fell from Grace – feeling perhaps all powerful and not using his power and influence wisely.

Venus is his chart refers to legal matters. It is a planet in detriment and is likely to behave badly and be challenging to him in his life. This describes his brushes with the law. But what is also interesting is that Venus is a benefic planet and wants to do good. The legal process was perhaps kind to him. But with Venus close to Pluto – this would increase his troubles especially if he thought he was perhaps above the law.
