Money: Two major Eclipses in Leo affect your house of work/service to others as the year begins. First the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on January 31st, which will bring a long overdue ending to a creative project/service you’ve been offering, involving employees/.employers. Then by August 11th, when the next Eclipse occurs, a new opportunity will present itself. However, with Mercury retrograde in Leo July 26th - August 18th and Mars retrograde in Aquarius, June 26th - August 27th, the offer will not only be unexpected but temporary, at least maybe taking you to the next level. Beware that this opportunity could also bring back some aspect of the old situation, you previously ended.
The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on February 15th, will open the door for new partnerships, which will challenge old ones and help you overcome some type of major karma, connected to how you currently present yourself to the world and how the world sees you. By the time the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse happens July 27th, you’ll clearly start to see whether the “fruits” of this new partnership are beneficial.
Jupiter currently in Scorpio unity November 8th, retrogrades March 28th - July 10th, urging you to give serious thought to how you’re going to get rid of people/situations holding you back from moving forward. This particular aspect highlights that now is the time to make enormous changes in home, job, friendships etc., but to be careful of jealous individuals/secret enemies, who wish you to fail in your objectives. But there will be people who have your best interests at heart ready to support young your success. Take note that legal matters, new studies and travel are important areas to look at with this transit. Once Jupiter moves out of Scorpio into Sagittarius on November 8th for one year, people in authority/power will be very helpful with career, goals and ambitions, you just need to make the right choices and believe you can achieve the highest levels possible.
Mercury retrograde in Aries, March 22nd - April 15th, influences you to rethink finances and plan a new budget and business plan. In addition, Uranus will stay in Aries until May 15th, returning again for the last time November 67th 2018 - March 7th 2019. This cycle has had an affect on how you make money, self-worth and material possessions, hopefully for the better. To increase your finances you have to use more of your unique ideas, especially if connected to beauty/visual modalities/spirituality. You may feel a bit insecure about going in a new financial direction, however your instincts will be strong and you should trust them and not fear the unknown. Try to be assertive and not waste time vacillating/procrastinating. Once Uranus moves into Taurus May 15th - November 6th, then permanently Mar 7t 2019 - July 2025, you’ll have even more genius ideas for monetary success, that, by the end of this cycle will most definitely change your foundation of life overall.
Sex: This is a year for you to start rebuilding your life, therefore love won’t necessarily be a main focus. The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer, July 12th, will be the the catalyst to starting a new cycle of deep emotional fulfillment, either with someone new or with an exiting partner. A cycle when you really do begin to experience true happiness in love and all that comes with it. Don’t be afraid to open your heart, just don’t go overboard and become a martyr. Also communication will be very important so that your needs are being served and vice versa.. Clear, honest communication is the “glue” that holds relationships together and keeps the relationship strong and secure. Listen to your heart and your head, let the two blend together, so they become the compass to deep relationship fulfillment in 2018.
Power: The Venus retrogrades in Scorpio October 5th - November 16th, joint financial partnerships/ legal matters, people from the past could re-enter your life. Individuals from other cultures/countries will also play a prominent role. These partnerships will not be long-term and you must tread with care because they may not have your best interests at heart, making promises they can’t keep and have no intentions of keeping. Most of all, don’t sign anything during this cycle or make any type of agreement.
With Saturn moving into Capricorn December 19th 2017 - December 17th 2020, joining Pluto in your house of groups, friends, hopes and wishes, there will be an overhaul, allowing you to get this part of your life in order, honesty and a stronger structure, surrounding yourself with those who are not undermining. A time to work out and confront issues that have been bothering you for a while. If you exercise caution and patience, you’ll be able to circumvent unnecessary accident, disappointment or upset, especially during Pluto retrograde, April 22nd - September 30th and Saturn retrograde April 17th - September 6th. Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius, November 15th - December 6th, may motivate you to stop and retrace your steps for a while and also bring to the surface legal matters that you hoped were over.
Mars retrogrades every two years, this time in Aquarius as mentioned earlier, June 26th - August 27th. This aspect will affect your house of the hidden, sorrow, self-undoing, karmic debt, large institutions and spirituality. Expect surprises! Change and the will to overcome debilitating circumstances in your life will empower you forward and you will have the help to make this happen. Even though Mars tends to initiate actions/events that are short-lived, this cycle will still help you to take a step forward. Clear thought/discernment, being too idealistic about outcomes, before action will save you from failure.
Power is to be gained in 2018, by meditating and using foresight and forethought.
Neptune your ruler is in your sign of Pisces until March 31st 2025. leading you to success or failure. The choice is yours and depends on your inner stability and awareness. When Neptune retrogrades June 18th - June 24th, deep introspection and internal evaluation is needed in order to avoid illusion, delusion or confusion. Most of all not allowing Self to be distracted or go off tangents to nowhere. Having the inner security and strength to trust your instincts will serve you well and keep you out of darkness, so you can be solid in the light in 2018.
Cycle: New Moon Solar Eclipse
Date: February 15th
The big event of February, is the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aquarius on the 15th. A time for each person to brace themselves for the unforeseen and unexpected, depending on how self-aware you are. For those who like to be the “ostrich with their heads in the sand”, this aspect will be an “alarm bell” to pay attention to a certain area of life wherever the Eclipse occurs and be ready for change. Any news/information that comes to the forefront at this time isn’t necessarily new or unforeseen. It was always there, but would only present itself when the time was right for it to be known.
This is the “signal” from the Universe that new beginnings should be given priority and implemented now before all the retrogrades start in March. A time to begin emerging from a caterpillar into a butterfly. Therefore set the “wheels in motion” for this to happen.
There will be more Eclipses throughout 2018, so don’t get caught “blissing out” because this is a time to be alert, awake, alert, aware and ready to take action. And of course, watch the news for surprises.
February is also the month for love and Unity through Diversity. A ttime to be kind to your fellow man and remember “another’s need is my command, my needs are already the command of the Universe”.
