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.

Sagittarius 2017 year ahead

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. You are frustrated trying to figure out what you must do from a work perspective. This is creating tension in your relationship. 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?

Jupiter – fixed signs – end Oct 2017 to Nov 2018

Jupiter moves into Scorpio and the impact will be felt in all fixed signs – Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. So for those who have your Sun in any of the fixed signs this promises to be a period of opportunity and growth. You need to be aware of new opportunities in your life. You are being asked to expand and grow. Get new knowledge, travel, look at new opportunities as they present themselves during the year ahead.

Mars in Libra – 23 Oct to 9 Dec 2017

Mars is not comfortable in Libra. Mars likes to be single-minded in its approach. In this space it is not able to act in the manner it would like. Libra is after all the turf of Venus – relationships. Taking action will have an impact on others who may not like what you have done. This causes conflict. During this time we have to learn that our actions have direct implications for others. Sometimes there is conflict and we have to work hard again to restore the balance. Equally not acting is also problematic. Not doing what you want because you are aware that others will not be happy only leads to one outcome – you get frustrated!

Jupiter moves into Scorpio

On 11th Oct 2017 Jupiter moved into Scorpio. It will take about a year to move through this sign. This passage lasts until 8 Nov 2018.
All those with Sun in Scorpio will benefit from this period of growth and expansion. Think back to what was going on in your life between end Oct 2005 and Nov 2006. You are in a similar phase currently. Did you get involved in a relationship, did you get a new job, did your role expand at work? Did you benefit financially at this time? Where the Sun is in your chart, your luck changes and the focus shifts to growth and opportunities.
