Virgo 2018 year ahead

This is a good time to focus on your own personal requirements especially your financial situation. This is a good time for you financially. Money comes your way with relative ease. Is your career something you value and are the financial rewards worth it? It seems like your work and or your daily life is getting you down. You are working incredibly hard and your work is emotionally draining. Is your work fulfilling? What changes do you need to make day to day? It may be appropriate to change roles and look at other opportunities. The chart indicates that if your relationship with your work continues as it currently is then your overall health and well-being will be compromised. You need to learn to let go – perhaps you need to delegate more to others around you. You seem obsessed about doing everything yourself and this is really not good for you. It may be a good idea to see your GP and get an overall health check.

Perhaps the real issue is that you have no time to enjoy yourself or you are not making time for your sporting and or creative pursuits. Schedule time for these activities and make a commitment to yourself to find time to do the activities that bring you joy. As they say – all work and no play is no good at all!

It would be a great idea to plan an adventure. Do something you have always wanted or travel to an exotic destination. A little adventure would go a long way to getting your spark back.

8 to 24 Nov – 2020 – Time of fundamental readjustment globally

• Saturn finds itself in rulership in Capricorn hence very powerful. This is the authority. Doing what is right and knowing right from wrong. Being responsible and taking charge. Setting limits and boundaries. Knowing and understanding what responsibility is and what it entails.

• Jupiter finds itself fallen in Capricorn – the real lesson here is knowing what is enough. Jupiter wants us to expand our knowledge and understanding of the world. The problems of greed and excessive use of authority will be problematic at this time.

• Pluto finds itself in Capricorn and one gets the sense that this is very much about power and authority and the use of this influence. So the saying ‘power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely’ seems to describe this time very appropriately. One can only hope that all that is wrong with the current system collapses at this time. Those who find themselves holding positions of power and influence who have not used these positions to create good in the world must take responsibility for this abuse of power. This applies to people as well as corporations, institutions and governments.

What is concerning is that Mars (God of War) is squaring this very powerful collection of planets. This is something that should have us all concerned. Mars finds itself in Aries and this is a powerful and aggressive Mars.

In 1940 and 1941 Saturn and Jupiter were conjunct (WW2). In 1915 and 1916 Saturn and Pluto were conjunct (WW1).

Jupiter conjunct Saturn – happens about every 20 years
Jupiter conjunct Pluto – happens about every 13 years
Saturn conjunct Pluto – happens about every 35 years

It truly does seem like the world needs to take stock of where we find ourselves and take responsibility for our actions and decisions taken to get to this point. One would hope that those found wanting end up paying the ultimate price for their abuse of power and that a new set of leaders can emerge at this time that want to do things differently for the betterment of society and humanity.

So many retrograde planets!

On 7 Aug Uranus starts its retrograde motion. There are currently 6 planets in retrograde. Those being Mercury, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto!
It seems like we really need to retrace our steps! From 19 August things shift as Mercury travels direct again, followed by Mars on 27 August, then Saturn on 6 September, Pluto on 1 October and Neptune on 25 November. Uranus will turn direct again on 6 Jan 2019.
It appears to be a frustrating period. Not easy to get things done at this time. Not easy to see who takes responsibility? What about the communication misunderstandings? Seems like processes and procedures are getting blocked at each and every turn. Have to check the details. We may have to retrace our steps before we can proceed.
