Money: Uranus enters Taurus, your house of money, material possessions and self-worth on May 15th - November 6th, then permanently March 7th 2019. During the Uranus journey through your sign, you have a chance to change direction in life and manner of expression. From a positive perspective, many lingering problems could be resolved. New opportunities for financial partnership will challenge existing ones and you’ll have to decide what is best for future financial prosperity. At the same time with Jupiter in Scorpio until November 8th, things that are hidden in joint financial partnerships will come to light and transform this area. Whatever is revealed and exposed, know that it’s karma and will have to be confronted. With Uranus in your sign, now until May 15th, then finally again November 6th - March 7th 2019, how you present Self to the world and how the world sees you will alter, as you feel motivated to not be so superficial and trust your instincts more often before taking action on plans, or being too confrontational.
Pluto still remains in Capricorn until 2024, now joined by Saturn in the same sign, December 19th 2017 - December 17th 2025, affecting career, goals, authority/power. Throughout this transit you’ll be faced with major transformation and possibly upheavals in this area of life, giving you the chance to restructure and transform current goals and ambitions into something more stable and long-lasting, long-term goals should be the focus. In addition the opportunity to bring your life into more order, discipline and straightforward honesty. If there are any “skeletons in the closet” or lingering, unsettled disputes, know that this will be a time to confront them once and for all, so that you’re free to move forward in a more positive direction.
The New Moon Solar Eclipse in Aquarius February 15th, will bring unexpected opportunity to meet new people, that opens doors and presents a different perspective for your hopes and wishes. By the time the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs July 27th, all existing friends/groups may leave (at least the ones that are frenemies), initiating a change in direction as far as hopes and wishes are concerned. Venus retrogrades in Scorpio, October 6th - November 16th, highlighting joint financial partnerships again. Money could cease to flow as a result of mishandling of finances, accounting etc., leaving you in a weak financial position. By the tine Jupiter moves into Sagittarius November 8th - December 3rd 2019, you’ll know and feel it’s time to move on/expand horizons in the year ahead.
Undoubtedly, 2018 will bring tremendous change, if not upheaval in work, career and finances and reveal some unpleasant truths. But, you should take into consideration that the Universe never brings challenges into a person’s life that they’re not capable of overcoming.
Sex: The year starts with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo affecting your house of romance, childhood, risk and happiness. This aspect indicates that a love-affair is likely to end. If you’ve been paying attention the “writing on the wall” would have been obvious, so it should not come as a surprise. When Mercury retrogrades in Leo, in the same area of life, July 26th - August 18th, there maybe a return of a past love or dialogue between you. You’ll have to decide whether or not it’s in your best interests to rekindle the relationship or move on. However, it would be wise to look to the future, because when the next New Moon Solar Eclipse occurs in Leo, August 11th, bringing the retrograde cycle of Leo, you may have already met someone new. As a result the past/present will overlap and choices made. The same thing could happen earlier in the year when Jupiter retrogrades in Scorpio March 8th - July 10th. Enjoy this experience, but unless there is a profound change in behavior of the past lover, don’t look back, move forward.
There is no question. Your love-life will be shaken up in 2018.
Power: The double transit of Pluto and Jupiter in Capricorn, will bring about situations where your moral/ethical structure are “tested”. There will be a need to review the past in order to discover insights, that help you get through certain experiences/crises and overcome situations that you thought you were through with. A time to purge./release some bad karma, as uncomfortable issues come back to “haunt” you. With the New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer July 12th, some aspect of home/family/foundation of life will be altered . You may well decide it’s time to move to a new abode that gives you a more nurturing feeling of comfort/nurturing.
Last but not least, Neptune in Pisces is in your house of spirituality, sorrow, self-undoing karmic debt, large institutions and the hidden. This particular aspect will “unveil” situations where individuals in and around your life, have tried to hide wrong-doings, that inadvertently affects you too. At some point everything will be revealed and brought to light. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. So, if, you’re in any way involved, know the truth is most definitely going to come out! From this perspective 2018, could be a year depending on how seriously you take Cause and Affect, a time when “you reap what you have sown!”
Date: March 8th - July 10th
With this particular retrograde in Scorpio, the focus shifts from outward to inward transformation. Bringing an influence to “dig deep” to answers to repeated mistakes and life cycles that have become negative and/or produced negative scenarios/people. A time to work hard to expose and remove secret enemies and those who consistently undermine, especially in joint financial/intimate partnerships of all kinds. Those who feel powerless to have affect or take action will discover what is needed to change, by going within, exploring past lives and past karma. In addition rejuvenation and regeneration on a physical level will prove to be very beneficial.
Anything that is kept hidden has the potential to be revealed once Jupiter moves forward July 10th. Between the retrograde and forward motion, research will be done quietly behind the scenes in order to bring certain truths out into the open.
Jupiter is benevolent and the planet of good luck and expansion. During the retrograde, if used correctly and discreetly, its attributes will bring success. Therefore, listen to the “Sound of the Universe” in meditation and quiet introspection, expanding knowledge and the ability to have “clear sight” (clairvoyance) and strong intuition.
This is the “message” Jupiter retrograde brings, use it well and the rewards after July will be in abundance.
Date: March 22nd - April 15th
Mercury retrograde in Aries is not a good time for conflicts on any level. Confrontations should be avoided at all costs, otherwise the outcome will be far worse than expected. When a retrograde occurs the “energy” of the associated sign is weakened and requires an individual to take a step back to re-assess situations, depending on the house in which the retrograde occurs. As Aries represents new beginnings, this is a time to plan things for the future but not to be implemented now. Any ideas impulses or action should be well thought through and discussed. Writing things down is strongly advised. There will be delays/difficulty with all forms of communication, travel, technology and social media. The best course of action is to use the “energy” of Libra, the opposite sign of Aries, with the intent of diplomacy, tact, tolerance, fairness and understanding. These characteristics will bring favorable outcomes during the retrograde cycle.
Remember, great progress can be made if the “message” of Mercury retrograde is heeded, understood and implemented. Stop, look, listen and plan.
