Welcome to 2018!
APDM (All Planets Direct Motion) from January 2, 2018 (Uranus SD at 24 Aries to March 8, 2018 (Jupiter SR 23 Scorpio). Uranus at station starts our year with the unusual, the unexpected, things happening as a forerunner of the future. All major planets move forward after Uranus directs – our entire solar system moving together, in the same direction, like a flowing cosmic river. Everything makes a move!
Year 2018 THEME – first aspect after New Year: Black Moon Lilith and then Venus conjunct Sun. Potential for love, cooperation is the key, truth is the only way to move forward, feminine power emerges into the light. This theme brings a balancing of nature.
New Year SUN at 10 Capricorn 46 brings Sabian Symbol “A large group of pheasants.” This symbol speaks to a colorful expression, exaggerated differences of social position, coming face to face with the great pretender. Watch what lies behind the colorful images.
A stellium of CAPRICORN to start the year brings the “utilizing” principle, practical energy, and the capacity for hard work into our lives. Capricorn cautions us to recognize that a pessimistic nature is our enemy.
Five Eclipses this Year: Lunar Eclipse January 31, Solar Eclipse February 15, Solar Eclipse July 12, Lunar Eclipse July 27, and Solar Eclipse, August 18. Our February Eclipse brings us back to the “Once-in-a-Lifetime” August, 2017 eclipse. It is the “mirror” image as Sun and Moon degree is at 27 Aquarius–the opposite of the August eclipse in Leo. We all changed last summer, in February, 2018 we find out how and what to now do about it.
Moon Wobble: Four periods of the year that activate dramatic releases of energy, heightened sensitivity, messages from within, and vivid experiences are all energized by Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius. We experience I have, I create, I desire, and I know through deep interpersonal “connections” in February, April, July, and October.
Planets “Out of Bounds” in 2018: Mercury January 17-January 20, June 6-June 24, and November 2-November 20. Venus May 6-June 7. Mars March 17-April 7 and July 7-September 24. Energies of the planets tend to be a little out of control during these periods. Unexpected views and insights of cosmic proportions can also appear during these times.
Outer planet SIGN changes in 2018 include Saturn moving from Sagittarius into his own sign of Capricorn on December 19, 2017. Saturn finds new strength and power through the sign he rules and shows us that he is an expert at building new sustainable structures.
