Astrological forecast for 2018
Happy new year everyone!
In Chinese astrology, 2018 is the year of the Brown Earth Dog.
In comparison with previous years, the year 2018 will be more stable and peaceful.
The influence of the Dog takes humanity “home", back to the basis on which universal fundamental values are based.
The Chinese New Year 2018 will start on February 16, 2018, the moment of the second New Moon after the Winter Solstice.
The year 2018 will be a year of introspection, creativity and productivity, seeking for what is truly important.
However, the energy of the Dog sinks its teeth into a situation and fights for an ideal or purpose. Pessimism and dissatisfaction, martyrdom and insurgency, international conflicts and war will be the result when things do not evolve in the desired direction.
Numerically, the year 2018 is linked to the master number 11.
The number 11 gives an ambivalent dimension to 2018 and generates strong contradictory currents in the social, cultural, political and religious spheres.
The number 11 also symbolizes the strength, enthusiasm and determination to fight for what we have is fully in line with the Energy of the Dog this year.
The year 2018 shows a very strong start!
The strong energy of the conjunction of Mars and Jupiter in the powerful Scorpio square the north Node in Leo is like a bulldozer in the first week of January 2018.
A week of major political and economic developments, but also an unexpected end of an urgent situation.
On January 15, 2018, April 14, 2018 and September 12, 2018, the powerful connection between Jupiter in Scorpio and Pluto in Capricorn brings positive transformation into all old, obsolete structures in our lives. This energy shows us the truth behind the lie about the government, the big companies, the multinationals.
This year, there are five eclipses.
The first is a total lunar eclipse in Leo on January 31, 2018 followed by a partial solar eclipse in Aquarius on February 15, 2018.
Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces form an exact harmonious connection at the beginning of 2018.
Jupiter goes retrograde from March 9, 2018 to rebuild the harmonic bridge of Water with Neptune in Pisces.
Through Jupiter in Scorpio in retrograde, we are given the opportunity to present dreams, fantasies and ideologies to the world. This Jupiter's influence is much stronger and means a great innovative period for the medical community.
From 20 to 28 May 2018 there is an exact trine of Jupiter in retrograde with Neptune in Pisces and again from 19 to 22 August 2018, there is an exact trine of Jupiter and Neptune in retrograde.
A great creative and idealistic period for the world of cinema, music, literature and entertainment, but also for Pisces, Scorpion and Cancer!
Jupiter in Scorpio will bring benefits, gains, jobs, solutions, savings and advantages in business and property from October 10th, 2017 through November 8th, 2018, especially for Taurus and Scorpio.
The Spring of 2018 is mainly colored by the transition from Uranus into the realm of Taurus.
Taurus represents “the Material World”.
Supported by the bridge in Water between Jupiter and Neptune, the Spring of 2018 will have a Water-Earth dynamic. The grounded connection between Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn in the first half of 2018 guarantees a long-term period, but only if people are prepared to work hard for it.
On May 16, 2018, the long journey of Uranus through earthly Taurus begins, almost half a year after the entry of Saturn in Capricorn.
Because Uranus turns retrograde at the end of 2018 and thus temporarily returns to Aries, this is just a preview of what we can expect in seven to eight years to come.
The New Moon in Taurus on May 15th, 2018 is the birth of a revolution in banking, currency and the global economy which will affect the world for years.
Uranus is the planet of freedom, independence and is associated with lightning, electricity and electric shocks. The unexpected.
In astrology, Taurus rules finances and the material world.
The transition from Uranus to Taurus is usually accompanied by an economic crisis.
What happens around May 15th 2018 will shock the capitalist, banking and tax system.
In short, May 2018 is a month the global economy will never forget.
In the years 2018 to 2026 we witness the end of banks and currency with new technology.
Uranus in Taurus will influence money, house, or business for Scorpio and Taurus between May 15th, 2018 until April 26th, 2026 or when you have planets, asteroids or other horoscope factors in Taurus and/or Scorpio.
The Summer of 2018 is colored by three eclipses.
A partial solar eclipse in Cancer on July 13, 2018, a total lunar eclipse in Aquarius on July 27, 2018 and a partial Solar eclipse in Leo on August 11, 2018.
The year 2018 will largely be borne by the constructive cosmic connection between Saturn and Uranus. The positive energy between Saturn in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries was in 2017 the planetary safety net in a polarizing world of unrest.
But this energy is different. From fire into earth.
What was devised and created with the fire energy last year can now be consolidated with this Earth's energy. From the drawing board to the construction site. A solid foundation can be built. The earthly cooperation of Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn is very important for our growth and evolution as humanity.
Building on the future, common goal, to our destination.
On December 21, 2017, the journey of Saturn in Capricorn began. Capricorn is symbolically connected to Saturn. Saturn has returned home after a long journey of 30 years through the zodiac.
The journey of Saturn by Capricorn has led to massive political and economic upheavals and changing balance of power.
Between 2018 and 2021, the world will be witness to influential historical events. Saturn will be in Capricorn until March 22, 2020.
A period of consolidation and responsibility. The construction.
But also walling and securing of borders. Due to the influence of Saturn in Capricorn from December 2017, we see that acceptable limits have been reached.
The collective responsibility for survival depends on our ability not to take the collective system for granted.
From October 11, 2017, Jupiter travels through the deep waters of Scorpio.
The period of Jupiter through Scorpio until November 8, 2018 will be primarily colored by combating pollution. New technologies in recycling and an unprecedented development in computer science and robotics.
In 2018, more car brands will come with electric cars, hybrids and fuel cell cars.
A transformation shift to reduce waste and energy sources with low or no net emissions of greenhouse gases.
The wounded healer, symbolized by the asteroid Chiron, leaves the waters of Pisces in the early Spring of 2018. A shift from Water to Fire.
Through the energy of Chiron in Aries from April 2018 and the influence of Jupiter in Scorpio, we see breakthroughs and discoveries in the medical world, alternative healing and the realization of innovative products and services to improve health care.
Jupiter in Scorpion is the deep cure that brings true liberation.
The year 2018 shows significant progress in research into the causes of hereditary and degenerative diseases.
Taking back responsibility for your own life. Both in life and death. A healthy lifestyle, but also the freedom of choice such as euthanasia and voluntary vaccination of young children.
New holistic therapies are found that work on an emotional and psychological level.
The time has come to say goodbye to entrenched mentalities and beliefs in order to focus on our own well-being.
Jupiter in Scorpio may lead to an increase in changing climatic conditions such as extreme flooding and extreme drought. Nature disasters such as great earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, floods, fires, storms and hurricanes are more likely due to global warming.
In the fight against terrorism, IS will be further cornered this year.
Unfortunately, this will fuel terrorism in the West. We must take into account uncontrolled attacks throughout the world this year.
The battle against terrorism is an uneven fight.
Fighting an invisible enemy that is living among us brings death and destruction at any given moment.
The year 2018 can bring peace into a conflict in the Middle East and lead to the signing of a peace treaty. Uranus in Taurus also shows that female leadership will play a major role in the world.
However, Uranus in Taurus does not solve the current worldwide political tension field from 2010. The last voyage of Uranus in Taurus was from 1934 to 1942.
The years of Crisis.
The tensions around the Brexit, Russia, Trump, China, Isis, Turkey and the EU can be the cause of war, trade wars, cyber wars and rigged elections until 2024.
There may be a collapse of a system in the world, a conflict with China or North Korea, Russia, the Islamic world, a civil war in Europe or the collapse of the EU.
In international politics we see increasingly sanctions on Russia.
USA and Japan are going to form an alliance against North Korea.
Historically, the period of Uranus in Taurus reveals structural and historical changes, new scientific revolutions and inventions.
The journey of Uranus In Taurus will lead to economic reforms until 2026 and the need for a more sustainable use of common resources. Uranus in Taurus refers to an urgent need for improvement. The progress.
Through Uranus in Taurus, we will become more aware of the outdated nature of our economic system and the way our resources are used.
Uranus in Taurus indicates further developments in biotechnology in agriculture and further industrial development. A better distribution of economic resources. A period of more scientific research into the effects of industrial pollution and environmental awareness, the fight against exploitation, abuse and neglect.
From the end of May to the middle of October 2018, the influence of Mars and the southern Node in Aquarius activates separatism and reinforces the strong need to strike a new direction.
The connection of Mars with the Southern Node also affects the Lunar Eclipse of July 27, 2018.
It fuels a deep desire to manifest independently and to take charge on our own destiny.
The influence of Aquarius focuses on the future, but also leads to more polarization, fundamentalism and alienation.
This period can lead to a negative sentiment, adversity and violence, but breakthroughs and discoveries are also possible during this period.
On November 6, 2018, the Northern Node leaves the fiery empire of Leo shifting to the waters of Cancer and the Southern Node to Capricorn joining Pluto will have a deep impact on us all.
Jupiter enters Sagittarius on November 9th 2018.
The largest planet in the solar system returns “home” in Sagittarius after a twelve year yourney.
For many of us, this transit promises a twelve month adventure and expansion.
An expanding year for travel, eco-tourism, education and multi-cultural activities.
Jupiter is the planet that encourages to look beyond our borders.
This fiery transit is very good news for all Sagittarians, Aries and Leo.
The year 2018 leaves the world in uncertainty.
At the same time, 2018 will be a year of unprecedented technological and medical innovations.
Even though we have a long way to go, we are on the right track!
I wish you all an innovative and happy 2018!
