A strong social conscience helps you and everyone around you. Whatever you do for others will only return to you
in a different and perhaps more generous form. That’s secondary, though. Your intent to
do good will win you karmic brownie points, and you never know when that will come in
handy. With the lunar nodes in Leo and Aquarius, you will enjoy everything you do
even more, no matter why or for whom you do it. The year 2018 is built for great fun and
fantastic progress. Don’t doubt yourself. Go for it!
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) are nonstop clever and creative all year long. The
year begins with Uranus in Aries and Mercury in Sagittarius. All three Mercury retrogrades
happen in fire signs (Aries in March, Leo in July and August, and Sagittarius and Scorpio in
November and December), so there’s little chance of playing too loose or free with
anything or anyone important. In November, Jupiter enters Sagittarius and boosts good
luck for everyone, especially fire signs. The lunar north node in Leo lends a karmic touch
to everything you do, so be attentive and respect your time. It’s valuable.
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) are well anchored with Pluto in the heart of
Capricorn. The sun and Venus in Capricorn give you extra authority in career and public
realms. Make great progress here. Mars is retrograde from March into July, starting in
Aquarius and ending in Capricorn. You may rethink some lines of action, but by the end
you’ll be well organized and eager to move ahead. Saturn is home in early Capricorn all
year long. Rash decisions or social missteps should be few and far between. Make great
practical use of every single day.
Air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) get the jump on everyone with the moon in Gemini
as 2018 begins. You’ll be fully engaged and involved with scores of issues, groups, and
inspiring individuals. A solar eclipse in Aquarius in February empowers your public
involvement. A lunar eclipse in July (with an Aquarius full moon) punches up your
emotional commitments. The lunar south node in Aquarius lets you draw on successful
habits from the past. In November, Venus concludes its retrograde period, so watch for
progress in any stalled romance.
Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) maintain high ideals with Neptune seated in
Pisces. The powerful Mars/Jupiter conjunction in Scorpio ushers in 2018 and assures that
those ideals are achievable and worth the struggle. In October, Venus turns retrograde in
Scorpio and tones down any extreme
emotions. Your sensitive (and psychic) outlook
will be the voice of reason all year long.
In numerology, 2018 is the big number two. It
is more than challenge or conflict. It is also
the creation of material reality. To make
fabric, you need the warp and the weft. To
get anywhere, you need to pass through a
crossroads. Be intrepid, pragmatic, and
smart. The year gives you all these qualities in
abundance, plus some!
