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.

Friends provide a huge level of support too. It will be very rewarding to spend energy cultivating friendships that matter to you.

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.

Oscar Pistorius – sentence extended to 13 years and 5 months

In December 2015 I wrote the following….

Pluto square South Node in 9th – Feb to Dec 2017 – seems like Oscar will have to face the full might of the law and do his time. Transiting Pluto is in 12th house – he may have dodged everything he can and be running out of options. The trauma of what he has done will finally become a reality. Seems like he is destined to spend a long time in prison – out of the limelight.

South Africa – 2019 elections will be significant

The sun in the 1994 chart of South Africa is at 6 degrees Taurus. Uranus is about to complete its passage through Aries and will move through the sign of Taurus between May 2018 and April 2026. In South Africa’s chart Uranus will conjunct the Sun between Jul 2019 and April 2020. The key months are Jul and Sep 2019 and April 2020. This will be a very significant time for South Africa and just like Zimbabwe we can expect big changes here too.

The sun in a country chart refers to the leadership of the country and this implies that a fundamental change is required. We need to reinvent ourselves. South Africa requires a new generation of leaders – preferably younger. We need to be bold and take ourselves in a new direction. Uranus is an unpredictable planet. It is revolutionary and chaotic in nature. It is fundamentally about taking risks and using innovative change to follow a new direction. The 2019 elections will prove to be exciting for South Africa. There will be some surprises.

Zimbabwe – new chapter

The sun is a country chart refers to the identity of the country and its leadership. The sun is at 28 degrees Aries in the Zimbabwe chart. This has been an interesting time for Zimbabwe as Uranus passes through the end degrees of Aries. Uranus is currently conjunct the Sun in the chart of Zimbabwe and the critical time frame is from July 2017 to April 2018. The key months are July and Sep 2017 and April 2018. Uranus is a revolutionary planet. It demands radical change. It requires innovative changes. It is a disruptive planet and creates chaos to enforce change. This is a time of fundamental change in Zimbabwe. The country requires a new identity and new leadership – ideally younger leadership.

Between Feb and Dec 2018 Pluto will square itself in the chart of Zimbabwe. This refers to fundamental changes that need to take place within the legal framework of the country. It is time to discard aspects of the legal system that no longer work, break with the past and recreate a new legal system for Zimbabwe. The key months are Feb, Jul and Dec 2018. This planetary transit requires the new leadership of the country to make significant changes to the constitutional framework of the country. This is not going to be an easy process but if done properly it will give Zimbabwe a chance to more forward in a new direction with a new legal framework. The old system must be discarded to move forward.

2017 and 2018 will prove to be significant for the future of Zimbabwe.

It is important that you focus on yourself at this time and your personal goals. Where do you want to be? What do you want to achieve in your career and or your business?
 
You are in a difficult space personally. Your work is getting you down and you need to think about how you can make some changes.

Your work and daily routine may be taking its toll on your overall health and well-being. You are feeling trapped in your life and this is making you unhappy. Your partner is equally frustrated at work at this time. There is an important negotiation that needs to happen between you and your partner about your roles at work and your commitments to each other and your relationship. You seem to be engaged with actions behind the scenes. The key to unlocking your frustrations is to re-invent your work role. It is time to take a risk and be bold. There may be some unexpected changes in your work role – perhaps changes that take you by surprise. This is ok. Think about the impact that a change can make financially. Money is a concern for you at this time. It is a good time to be prudent financially, cut back and look long term. The financial responsibilities of your family are a priority at this time.
 
You are in a fragile space emotionally. There may be some issues with neighbours and or siblings. Any legal matters that need to be resolved? Would you like to travel but are financial matters making this more difficult?
