Aquarius 20th Jan - 18th Feb
YOUR YEARLY HOROSCOPE 2018
This is a good time to promote yourself and
show what you can do. You’ll benefit from teaming
up with others so be prepared to share the limelight
and let others set the agenda occasionally. Don’t be too
surprised, or appalled, to find there will be times when it is
not what you know but who you know that makes the difference. Keep it simple where money is concerned but be open to opportunities to make money from your imagination and creative talents. Embrace domestic changes that free you up to do your thing and make time and space in your life for inner work, soul work, since this will have long-term and far-reaching implications.
Saturn's influence in 2018
At the end of 2017 Saturn, your traditional planetary ruler, entered Capricorn where it will remain, more or less until the end of 2020. Since Capricorn is one of the more mysterious and complex zones of your solar chart, it would appear that some of the most important work that takes place over the next few years while be taking place within, on a psychological level, in a sense, laying the groundwork for the major new cycle that gets underway from 2020 and beyond. There is plenty of time but perhaps you should make time for yourself to periodically escape from your usual scene and routine to spend time in nature by the sea or some other places that give you opportunities for contemplation, reflection and peace. You may also begin, in little ways to simplify your life, finish unfinished business and tie-up lose ends in readiness for the new you that is being formed in the depths of your soul, waiting to emerge in the not too distant future.
Jupiter's influence in 2018
With Jupiter, planet of luck and opportunities not always due solely to merit, in the zone of your solar chart associated with your work, vocation, status and dealings with those in positions of power and influence, this promises to be a good time to put yourself, your ideas and your talents in the shop window, enhance your reputation and show what you can do.
The Nodes of the Moon's influence in 2018
With the South Node of the Moon in Aquarius, your Sun sign, and the North Node in your opposite sign of Aquarius until November, this suggests that, rather than going solo you should be prepared to reach out to others, to be prepared to be a team player and let us have some time in the driver’s seat. This is a good time to invite new people into your life, personally, professionally, emotionally and romantically.
Uranus's influence in 2018
With Uranus hovering down at the base of your solar chart, it’s possible that changes on the domestic front may not be too far away. Uranus will be in Taurus, the area of your solar chart associated with your home, family, living environment and base of operations between May and November and then again from the spring of 2019. Whether this involves a move, a change or rearrangement of your situation, only time will tell but with Uranus in Taurus between May and November it is possible that you may get a sense of the directions thins will take.
Pluto's influence in 2018
As with both Uranus and Neptune, Pluto is slow moving, taking approximately 248 years to travel the 12 signs of the zodiac. As with Uranus, Pluto is associated with change. However, Pluto and Uranus are not the same. The change Pluto signifies is associated with the natural process of death and rebirth, something we see and experience around us everyday, such as the cycle of decay, death, rebirth and renewal that characterises the changing seasons. Pluto affects us all to varying degrees at varying times in our lives. Pluto has a cleansing influence. Pluto cleans away that which has served its purpose or role in our lives and needs to make way for new life, growth and new experiences. Pluto can give us an opportunity to discover, or rediscover, hidden talents and resources within us, talents which may now demand a stage or a place in our lives to be expressed. Pluto can be the key to making the changes ahead that work in our favour.
As with 2017 and will be the case in 2018 and beyond, Pluto is in Capricorn, one of the most complex and mysterious areas of your solar chart. On the most mundane level, with Pluto in Capricorn you should endeavour to maintain high standards of honesty and integrity in dealings in public and exercise discretion in private. In the process you should avoid office politics, rumour and gossip or being seen to take sides. On another level, for many Aquarians, Pluto’s influence will remain below the surface of awareness, drowned out by other, louder noises and distractions. Nevertheless, for those of you prepared to turn inwards, to step back from the hustle, bustle and go on an inner journey, a spiritual, psychological and philosophical adventure where exploration and investigation of the unseen and unconscious forces that have shaped your life path so far, you have the potential to access hidden wealth deep within you, soul work, that can transform your life, and ultimately, your destiny
Neptune's influence in 2018
Neptune is in Pisces and will be there throughout 2018 and beyond. Pieces is one of the money zones of your solar chart and so with Neptune here it’s important to keep and eye on your finances. Endeavour to be clear and simple in money matters. Reduce uncertainties and ambiguities, be business-like in your dealings and steer clear of opportunities, people, dreams and schemes that look to too good to be true.
As with 2017, be prepared to think ahead, to put a little something away for a rainy and avoid living from pay-check to pay-check if possible. Also, rather than accumulate possessions it might be advisable to do the opposite, to have a clear out, keeping only those that have either a sentimental value or practical use. However, if there are items that tie you to the past and may be preventing you form moving forward, let them go. Minimise your outgoings and unnecessary expenditures and the purchase of big ticket items that you don’t really need. On the plus side, be open to opportunities, projects and techniques that allow you to turn your imagination, intuition and inspiration into potent income streams.
