Astrological Happenings JANUARY 2018
Happy New Year and welcome to 2018!
We start the New Year with only one planet Retrograde, Uranus and that will be going direct on January 2nd.
When Uranus in Aries, goes Direct on January 2nd you will discover that the lights have been turned on! What does that mean exactly? You will be able to see more clearly that those people, places and situations that seem to have come out of nowhere in the past year, and may have caused some upheaval, have a purpose in your life, are part of your destiny. You may have had some fears, real or imagined, come to the surface over the past year.
Now that Uranus is going direct you will discover that those ah-ha moments you had in the past 6 months, about the shifts and changes you need to make in your life, can be planned out and accomplished now. Your intuition ought to be strengthened as we start the movement of Uranus going direct. Listen to it. It doesn’t have to make sense (sense is a head based, logical, ego based itty bitty shitty committee place)! A place to stay away from!
Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio at this time will allow you to uncover information that someone didn’t want you to know. Usually it will be in the work arena, as Mars rules work. The good news is that with Jupiter also in Scorpio you will understand the truth of a matter very clearly and intuitively know why something is happening.
Saturn and Pluto
Both Saturn and Pluto are now in the business, government and unemotional sign of Capricorn!
As I mentioned in December if you are around the ages of 28-30 and 58-60 or even 88-90 you will be engaged in either your 1st, 2nd or 3rd Saturn Return for the next 2 years.
Those of you who are 28-30 and in their first Saturn return, you will experience major changes in important areas of your lives. This is a time when we get married, have children, get divorced (if we married before 21), move states, countries and even belief systems. There can be big changes such as a parent dying or a person of influence in your leaving, leaving you.
The first Saturn Return tends to bring more pressure to your being to let go of those things that are not working anymore and to embrace who you truly are at your core and live your life in accordance with your true beliefs.
During my 1st Saturn Return, my dad died in England, my 1st husband went to rehab, my in-laws arrived from England and I discovered I had the beginnings of cervical cancer!!!
Those of you who are moving into your 2nd Saturn return, anywhere from age 58-60 will experience another opportunity to handle any situations you didn’t handle back in your first Saturn Return.
One of my clients who filed for bankruptcy, divorced and moved to a different state when she was 29 is discovering that during this 2nd Saturn Return she is still dealing with financial issues, the ending of her second marriage and a potential move to another State.
If we don’t learn what we need to learn during our 1st Saturn Return, we will be given the opportunity to revisit those same issues nearly 30 years later!
Depending upon what house Saturn is going through in your Natal and Relocated charts will determine the area of your life where major change is going to occur, whether you like it or not.
For those of you moving through either your 1st, 2nd or 3rd Saturn Return, we have Pluto the planet of transformation just starting its journey through Capricorn.
Capricorn can be a hard task master, whether in Saturn or Pluto. When we have both planets in the same sign, we are getting a double dose of a need to change.
Saturn in Capricorn is going to bring up issues that will need to be addressed and Pluto in Capricorn gives us an opportunity to transform our lives into something that is more in alignment with who we are.
The Sign of Capricorn rules big business and government and we will continue to see change in the USA as well as around the world in the way business and government works.
In 2017 we saw the beginnings of change, with new information coming to light and out in the public domain surrounding sexual harassment and bullying. Change cannot happen until the “problems” come to light. Saturn sheds a light on what obstacles and challenges need to be dealt with and Pluto looks at what transformation needs to take place to overcome the obstacles and challenges. Saturn is a Karmic planet and asks us to clean up our past. Pluto can give us the push needed for transformation to take place.
Regardless of your age, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn are going to effect changes in your life. Look at your chart, if you have it, and find out which house Saturn in Capricorn and Pluto in Capricorn is passing through. You will spend more time in the next 2 years focusing on those areas, making changes.
With Mars still in Scorpio until 26th January, time to look at what needs to be done for you to shine in your career. Is there a project that didn’t get completed last year, that you can salvage and make better? Do you know secretly that your boss is leaving? Time to position yourself for her job!
For those of you who are self-employed, spend at least the first 2 weeks of January going over your Mission and Vision for your business as well as looking at your Target Market. The Scorpio energy might be asking you to change some of the rules for your business or the type of client or customer you serve.
On January 26th Mars will move into Sagittarius. You will experience a new freedom to speak your mind at this time. For some of you, there will be opportunities to either work abroad or work for a new company that has ties to foreign countries. Many of you will travel for work. Some of you will be looking to move states or countries, sometimes within your organization and sometimes to a new one, so that you can enjoy your work more.
On January 17th Venus, the planet of love, enters the Sign of Aquarius. This is a great time to make new friends. If you have been friends with someone with whom you want a romantic relationship and if the friendship has been grown over the past year, the chances are good, the friendship will turn into a romantic relationship.
In terms of the Saturn/Pluto in Capricorn energy moving through your personal life, it can be an opportunity to look back over the relationships you’ve had in past and ask yourself some questions:
- Do I keep attracting the same type of relationships?
- Am I clear about what I want in my relationships?
- Do I have the values, characteristic and traits of a potential partner in writing?
- Am I actively pursuing relationships that are completely different from what I have been used to in the past?
You can’t attract what you want if you don’t know what that looks like!
COMING UP IN FEBRUARY 2018
The New Moon in Aquarius occurs on February 15th. Venus, the planet of love will move into the spiritual sign of Pisces. Not such good news for love. Read more about that in the upcoming Astrological Happenings for February 2018.
