The year 2018 is buzzing full of energy. There might be some anxiety, also – there always is. However, that goes with being very energetic. A better sense of direction and more focus is all you need in order to put all of your incredible energy to good use.
This year opens with a Mars/Jupiter conjunction which is very powerful in no-nonsense Scorpio. It will keep you going in the direction that you want to go in your life. In addition, it brings a huge injection of energy to power your days along with your family and long-range career plans. Pluto, Venus, and the sun are all clustered in the pragmatic Capricorn to keep you on track and grounded.
Enhanced charm and social interaction that are more pleasant are also powerful additions to add to your life-skills toolbox. Your strong social conscience not only helps you but also everyone around you as well. Anything you do for other people will return to you in a more generous and different form. However, that is secondary. You will win karmic brownie points from your intentions to do go will, and you never can tell when that will come in useful. The lunar nodes are in Aquarius and Leo, which means you will be able to enjoy all that you do even more than usual, no matter for whom or why you are doing it.
The year 2018 is designed for incredible progress and great fun. Don’t have doubts about yourself. Just for it! The fire signs (Sagittarius, Leo, and Aries) are creative and nonstop clever all year long. This year starts with Mercury in Sagittarius and Uranus in Mercury. All three of the Mercury retrogrades will occur in the fire signs (Aries in the month of March, Leo in the months of July and August, and Scorpio and Sagittarius in the months of November and December), so there isn’t much chance of playing free or lose with anyone or anything that is important to you. In the month of November, Jupiter will be entering Sagittarius and for everyone will have a boost of good luck, the fire signs especially.
Leo’s lunar north node will lend a karmic touch to all that you do, so make sure to respect your time and be attentive. It is invaluable. The Earth signs (Capricorn, Virgo, and Taurus) are anchored closely with Pluto in Capricorn’s heart. Venus and the sun in Capricorn provide you with added authority in the public and career realms. Make significant progress in this department. Mars will be in retrograde starting in March through July, beginning in Aquarius and then ending in Capricorn. It might be necessary for you to rethink some of your lines of action. However, you will end up being very well organized and excited to move forward. All year long Saturn will be at home in early Capricorn. Social missteps or rash decisions should be rare.
Make good practical use of each day. The air signs (Aquarius, Libra, and Gemini) will get a head start on everybody with the moon signs being in Gemini as the year 2018 starts. You will be completely engaged and involved with numerous inspiring individuals, groups, and issues. In February in Aquarius, a solar eclipse will empower all of your public involvement. In July a lunar eclipse (with an Aquarian full moon) will increase your emotional commitments. Aquarius’ lunar south node will allow you draw on your past successful habits.
Venus will be concluding its retrograde period in November, so watch out for progress in a stalled romance that you might have. The Water signs (Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer) will be maintaining high ideals and Neptune will be seated in Pisces. 2018 will be ushered in by the powerful Jupiter/Mars conjunction in Scorpio and assures that our ideals are worth the struggle and achievable. In October, Venus will be turning retrograde in Scorpio and will be toning down whatever extreme emotions you might have. All year long your psychic and sensitive outlook will be your voice of reason. The big number for numerology in 2018 is the number two. It goes beyond just conflict or challenge. It is creating material reality as well. To make fabric, weft and warp are needed. To get anywhere, it is necessary to pass a crossroad. Be smart, pragmatic, and intrepid. The year will provide you with an abundance of all of those qualities, and then some!
