Cancer 2018 year ahead

Life seems to be a balancing act at the moment. The tension currently relates to balancing the demands and responsibilities of your home and family with that of your career and personal requirements. It is important that you focus on yourself and your personal and professional goals at this time. Focus too on the financial rewards from your career. Are you happy where you are personally and professionally? What changes need to be made? Work requires your energy and application, your dedication too. You may find yourself questioning your value system and what this effort is worth to you personally and financially.

Your home and family are very important at this time. This is the foundation of your life. Your family keeps you grounded and rooted. This is very good. This stability and responsibility is appropriate currently. The focus is very much on financial matters and the needs and responsibilities you have towards your home, family and children.

Gemini 2018 year ahead

The focus this year is your personal financial situation. This is a good time to be making progress in this regard. But there is tension in the chart between you and your spouse when it comes to financial matters. Your spouse/business partner seems to have a greater appetite to spend. This is what is creating tension! The financial matters of your home and family are important at this time. Look at your requirements as a family and make decisions on what your financial priorities are at this time. What do the children require from you financially? Schooling is a focus. What are the financial implications?

This is an important time professionally and you are focussed at this time. Stay humble and use your power and influence wisely. You are keen to take a few risks and are looking for some adventure. Channel this energy into something exciting and focus on a goal to truly make it worth while.

Looking back in history – Uranus in Taurus – June 1934 to Oct 1941

We need to bear in mind that the last time Uranus travelled through Taurus was during the period 6 June 1934 to 5 Oct 1941. This was a particularly challenging time globally as the world recovered from the Great Depression of the early 1930’s. Sadly it will be remembered as a time when fascism took hold across Europe and World War 2 began on 1 Sep 1939 when Germany invaded Poland. France and Britain then declared war on Germany. We can only hope we don’t end up in a similar space this time around. But we need to be very mindful as history has a way of repeating itself and we are back there again. Fascism is extremely dangerous and polarising.
Uranus is once again moving through Taurus. It started this journey on 15 May 2018 and will stay in this sign until 8 Nov 2025.

Uranus in Taurus – May 2018 to Nov 2025

Uranus started its journey into Taurus on 15 May 2018 and will stay in this sign until 8 Nov 2025. Uranus usually spends about 7 years in each sign.
Uranus is a disruptive and unpredictable planet. It likes drastic change and risk. Uranus strives for personal freedom and independence. Its nature is inventive and it wants to find innovative solutions to problems. Uranus likes to create chaos and in that way disrupt the status quo so that dramatic changes are necessary. Mostly one needs to remember that Uranus is very unpredictable and likes sudden and unexpected surprises and changes. Uranus likes things to be exciting and crazy all at the same time. You may very well feel like your life is on a roller coaster ride.
So with that in mind what can we expect for the next 7 years? Firstly Taurus is a fixed, earth sign and the ruler Venus naturally signifies money and love. In the sign of Taurus the role of Venus relates to our value system – mostly financial and our sense of worth – financial worth. Taurus likes stability and with Uranus travelling through this sign we can expect some major discomfort. If you have your Sun in Taurus then big changes are on their way as Uranus moves across your Sun. It will be time to take a calculated risk and back yourself. It signifies a time to re-invent yourself.
Scorpio opposes Taurus and those with Sun in Scorpio will have Uranus opposing their Sun creating circumstances ripe for a radical change in direction. So whichever house your Sun resides that is the area of your life where big changes will be taking place. The key houses on the angles are self/body and your relationship. In addition career and home and family life. The most visible changes happen in these houses. All the fixed signs will experience the affects of Uranus moving through Taurus. So those with Sun in Leo and Aquarius will have Uranus making a 90 degree square aspect to the Sun. The same message applies – expect big changes.

Taurus 2018 year ahead

Financial security is a big focus this year. This is an excellent time financially. It is really important that you use your authority and status in your career or business appropriately at this time. If you don’t you may fall hard. With authority comes added responsibility. You need to step up to the plate this year and do what is right and speak truth to power if you see that there is something wrong. Otherwise you will be complicit in the scenario.
You have lots of plans about what you want to create at work/in your career/business. You may well have some issues to contend with in your business/career.
This is a good time for important relationships in your life – spouse and or business partner. Money flows but there could be some tension between you and your partner as to how to spend and or save these resources at this time. Being a fixed sign you find comfort in financial stability. This is a good time to make that your focus.

Aries 2018 year ahead

Your relationship and or business partnership is a big focus at this time. You may think that things are going very well. But perhaps you are deceiving yourself that everything is fine or you are being deceived by your partner. It seems like there are some issues and you may very well require the services of a lawyer to sort out the issues. Your joint financial situation (personal and or business partnership) looks very healthy but there is an indication that things are about to change unexpectedly. Does a huge financial windfall come your way? Equally financial matters may be unstable and unpredictable.

Perhaps the conflict in your relationship relates to your home/property. You seem very determined to get your way in this regard. Do you want to move house or make changes to your current home? Are you on the same page with your partner in this regard?

Your biggest responsibility is your children. There may well be conflict in your relationship about how to manage your home and family life including your responsibilities to your children. This is a good time to look at how you spend your time. You have duties and responsibilities towards your children. Is there time to do the things you enjoy ? Make a commitment to yourself and find time for sport or something creative.

 

Pisces 2018 year ahead

Your focus during this period is your relationship. There are some things that are bothering you. It seems like you need to have some conversations about the direction your lives are taking. Perhaps you have business concerns that need to be addressed. There seem to be other aspects that are wonderful. Perhaps you dream about travel opportunities together and making lots of money personally. Can you make this happen? Is their an opportunity to get involved in a business partnership opportunity? Is this a dream or can you really make it happen? What do you really want? Perhaps you are not even really sure at the moment.
 
You are actively engaged in your home and family life. A big focus is your children too. You take your role seriously and want to do the right thing when it comes to matters regarding your children. Make time to do the things that you enjoy too. This is an excellent time to commit to a new creative project. What about making time for sport and or exercise? The key is you need to be disciplined. So if you don’t have enough self-discipline then sign up for a class and make a commitment.
 
You are not convinced about your work role. Perhaps it is time to give it up and start a new project. Make a commitment to yourself to make these changes.

Aquarius 2018 year ahead

Shared resources may be a concern at this time. Where do you stand with regards your joint financial situation?

Connect with siblings and neighbours. They are emotionally supportive currently.

Capricorn 2018 year ahead

The focus is your relationship. You are very committed to your relationship and this is good, but there are issues that need to be addressed. Seems like things are not altogether easy at home. There is an aspect of self that is also not personally happy with your family situation as it stands currently. It is a good time to look at these issues that are making you irritated.
 
It seems like a very important conversation needs to happen re financial matters. Look at your debt. Debt is a burden and huge responsibility and this is getting you down. As a Capricorn you don’t shy away from taking on responsibility – but we all have our limits. What is your limit financially? What is your limit when it comes to joint financial responsibility in your relationship. It is time to be firm and set limits for yourself.
 
Your children are demanding and making your life very busy – there is lots going on in your day to day life and at work. Work seems like you are in the trenches – getting on with every day life and daily work priorities. Where are you headed? There may be some opportunities. Does what you do on a daily basis at work support the direction you would like your career to be headed? Perhaps you get rewarded financially with an unusual bonus payment? Financially there is instability in your business. Things may change when you least expect.

Mercury retrograde – 3 to 23 Dec 2017

Once again Mercury changes direction and turns retrograde. Back up phones and computers. Be patient concluding deals and signing contracts – there may be delays. Information may change – new things may come to light. Be careful how you articulate your thoughts and ideas – others may misinterpret your communications. Car troubles? Accidents? Annoying period where little things may go wrong.
