Sagittarius 22nd Nov - 21st Dec
YOUR YEAR AHEAD 2018
In many respects 2018 represents a period
of transition, preparing the way for the entrance
of Jupiter, your planetary ruler, into Sagittarius, your
Sun sign, from November and into 2019. The once in every
twelve years return of Jupiter to your Sun sign promises to herald
a period of renewal as your new Jupiter cycle gets underway. Nevertheless, the move of Saturn out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn, your Sun sign at the end of 2017 should correspond with an easing of the pressures of recent years and a time to begin to capitalise on the changes you’ve made. Be prepared to step outside your comfort zone and explore pastures new. Be open to new, unusual or innovative ways of working and outlets for your talents. Simplify your financial affairs and endeavour to increase your independence and flexibility and reduce the influence, whether emotional, financial or practical that others have over your affairs.
Saturn's influence in 2018
At the end of 2017 Saturn moved from Sagittarius, your Sun sign, into Capricorn. Saturn had been in Sagittarius since the end of 2014. This suggests that the last couple of years have been quite testing. Older, wiser and with a few more grey hairs you’ve no doubt matured considerably in recent years. Serious decisions, hard work and the need to set out on an important life path may well have been themes of this Saturn transit through Sagittarius. Whether you have been building and establishing, or dismantling or downsizing, certain things should now be in place on which you can now build and pursue your future plans.
The movement of Saturn out of Sagittarius, your Sun sign, and into Capricorn should correspond with an easing of certain pressures and perhaps even a sense of relief. Life may not necessarily have got easier, you may simply have become stronger. With Saturn in Capricorn, one of the money zones of your solar chart until the end of 2020, it’s time to turn your attention towards getting your financial house in order. How you manage your relationship with money over the next couple of years could have long-term implications for your security, stability and prosperity. By striving for greater financial independence you will give yourself greater choice, flexibility and room for manoeuvre when opportunity comes knocking.
Jupiter's influence in 2018
Jupiter, your planetary ruler, will be in Scorpio until November when it enters Sagittarius, your Sun sign. With Jupiter in your Sun sign from the end of 2018 and into 2019, this represents the beginning of a major new Jupiter cycle for you, a time to spread your wings, to make a new start and explore pastures new. Until then, with Jupiter in Scorpio, one of the more mysterious and complex areas of your solar chart, 2018, to some extent is a year of transition. At times you may feel the invisible, guiding hand of fate at work in your life, and if you, be prepared to go with the flow. This is a time to travel light, to tie-up loose ends, finish unfinished business and declutter your life in readiness for a new chapter in your life story that begins in the not too distant future.
The Nodes of the Moon's influence in 2018
With the North Node of the Moon in Leo and the South Node in the sign opposite Leo, Aquarius until November, this would be a good time to step out of your comfort zone and explore the world away from your usual scene and routine. This is a time for new experiences that broaden your mind. Whether this involves a physical journey to other lands, peoples and cultures or an intellectual journey through study, philosophy or metaphysics, the important thing is to explore pastures new since this will bring positive benefits, new connections and opportunities.
Uranus's influence in 2018
Uranus takes approximately 84 years to travel the 12 signs of the zodiac, spending, about 7 years in each zodiac sign and so is considered a background influence for most people until it triggers some of the more personal points in the horoscope. Over the next year or so Uranus will move from Aries to Taurus, one of the work zones of your solar chart, the one more associated with the more routine and mundane elements of your work and daily habits. Therefore, this is an area of your life where you’re likely to experience change, variety and perhaps some disruption and variability. Uranus often serves to wake us up especially if we’ve become too familiar, comfortable and set in our ways. Uranus can often bring opportunities that free us up and create new outlets for our talents. It’s early days yet, nevertheless, to make the most of the opportunities Uranus brings, be adaptable and flexible, open to the new and innovative technology, working methods, habits and routines.
Pluto's influence in 2018
As was the case in 2017, Pluto is in Capricorn and will be there for some time to come. Saturn has also recently entered this area of your solar and will be there, more or less, until the end of 2020 when Saturn moves into Aquarius. Capricorn is the zone of your solar chart associated with your personal resources, possessions and money. With Pluto in this zone of your solar chart it can be a great time to discover, or rediscover, hidden abilities and personal resources within you, talents which may have a role to play in your life and work. This would be a good time to develop greater independence and self-sufficiency in your financial affairs, to minimise the control, influence or say that others, be they individuals or institutions, have over your financial affairs and thereby, directly or indirectly, over you.
Also endeavour to reduce emotional complications that have financial implications. That is not to say you shouldn’t get involved with others, commercially or emotionally, but it must clearly be to your advantage. You might find it better to get by with less than have ties, obligations and commitments that often come with having more. By taking greater control of your financial affairs you can take greater control over your life and therefore in a more fluid and flexible position to make changes and seize opportunities.
Neptune's influence in 2018
Neptune will be in Pisces throughout 2018 and beyond. Like both Uranus and Pluto, Neptune is considered an outer planet. Neptune is also slow moving, taking 165 years to travel the 12 signs of the zodiac and so and is currently about half way though its transit of Pisces, the domestic zone of your solar chart. Such a long-term influence isn’t always so noticeable, at least not until it touches off one of the more sensitive points in your horoscope. Nevertheless, with Neptune in this zone of your solar chart it is generally advisable to be just a little bit more careful in your dealings with home, family, property and domestic matters. Misunderstandings and complicated emotional entanglements are more likely if you act in haste or on incomplete or questionable information. Certain family members may lean on you for extra support and you should endeavour to do what you can, always remembering to prioritise the needs of your nearest and dearest.
For some, this may be a time of relatively uncertainty on the domestic front, and if so, be prepared to travel light, cultivate patience and make the best of your current situation even if in the long run it turns out to be a temporary arrangement. For others who had have faced a period of certainty it may be time to set your sights on creating your ideal domestic environment.
