Tip of the Week:
Over the course of 2018, significant astrological cycles will unfold and new ones will begin that will activate measurable changes for us all. Jupiter in powerful Scorpio as of October 2017 and Saturn in its own powerful sign of Capricorn as of late December 2017 will lead the charge. They will introduce new leaders on the world stage stimulating new social policies and important economic trends.
In mid-April, the maverick planet Chiron will enter bold and pioneering Aries inspiring us all to be more pro-active regarding authentic self-actualization. Then, in mid-May, mover and shaker Uranus will make its debut in Taurus to begin a 7-year cycle ploughing ahead with the finesse of a bulldozer. Finally, late in the year in early November, shortly prior to Jupiter’s entry into visionary, philosophical and adventurous Sagittarius, its own sign, the Moon’s Nodes will leave the Leo/Aquarius sign axis and enter into that of Cancer and Capricorn, which are Cardinal signs and which symbolize fresh starts and bold new initiatives.
When added, the numbers in 2018 = 11 the meaning of which includes clearing the old to make way for the new. 2017 was a Universal 1-Year marking the start of a new 9-year cycle and was like a rocket launching. 2018 will be as when it must break through the atmosphere, so get ready the many dramatic trends initiated in 2017 will likely escalate.
