(February 18 – March 20, ’18)
You’re on a personal quest this month – set your sights high, stretch your boundaries, expand your horizons & unfold your dreams. Imagine yourself in far-away places and set some travel plans in motion (perhaps a cruise); move your legs and spread your wings! Global communications, foreign cultures, higher education, religion, politics & sports will pique your interest, particularly on 2/21, 25, 27-28, 3/1-2, 4, 11, 13 & 17. It’s a great time to learn, teach, write, publish or promote yourself. Thing big and aim high! Trust your instincts, but don’t believe everything you hear, however. Rein yourself in a bit on 2/25, 28 & 3/1 (Full Moon); be circumspect in communications, don’t overload yourself, and be careful on the road.
After 3/6, you’ll be putting more thought into your personal & professional goals. Clarify your objectives and be creative in your approach – new projects & ideas will be emerging. Your public image will be improved & enhanced, and you will be seen in a favorable light by those in high places. Friends can help your career along and you could benefit from mixing business with pleasure at this time. You may encounter some pushback from partnerships on 3/10 or 13; stand your ground and face the issues fearlessly. Things will smooth out by 3/19.
You’ve been pouring lots of energy into work & health matters lately; you could be well-rewarded for your efforts by 3/11. From 3/17 on (for the next 2 months), partnerships and teamwork interactions will be demanding lots of your attention. With Mars, Saturn & Pluto all in CAPRICORN (your opposite sign), it will be important to align with those who are responsible, trustworthy and capable of keeping their agreements with you. Strive for mutual respect, consensus and equality in your one-on-one relationships.
LONG-TERM FORECAST: You’re currently undergoing a major metamorphosis in your one-on-one relationships, now that Pluto is in your opposite sign, CAPRICORN (2008–2024). During this 16-year cycle, creative, dynamic & intense individuals will be drawn into your life, demanding your attention, participation & commitment to shared objectives. By joining forces, much can be accomplished! Transformation, renewal, and perhaps major upheaval, can occur in existing partnerships – paving the way for a healthier interdependence and improved teamwork interaction. Strive for equality, mutual respect, responsible communication and self-realization (through the mirroring effect of relationships).
A more mystical, spiritual dimension is infusing your outlook on life while Neptune is in PISCES (2012–2026). During this 14-year cycle, you’ll be on a quest for cosmic understanding! You could travel far and wide in your search for spiritual knowledge, enlightenment and optimal health. You will be extending your boundaries, expanding your consciousness and exploring inner & outer space. Take advantage of any opportunities for education, writing, publishing & marketing. With Uranus now in ARIES (2011–2018), you’ll be experiencing an element of change & unpredictability in your public & professional life. During this 7-year cycle, you’ll be awakening to your personal power, experiencing leadership opportunities & possibly changing career directions.
While Saturn transits CAPRICORN (12/20/17–12/16/20), you’ll be restructuring the way you relate to others, clearing the decks of those who aren’t reliable or committed to your highest good, and creating space for productive partnerships and teamwork interactions. Accept nothing less than mutual respect, honest communication & accountability in your one-on-one interactions! Make wise choices in your alliances, and only get involved with those whom you trust and can count on. Mature, responsible individuals will be the ones who can provide the balance you require for your personal development and emotional well-being; a serious, long-term relationship could develop during this cycle!
With Jupiter now in SCORPIO (10/10/17−11/7/18), a creative, enterprising spirit is welling up within you. It’s the year for initiating new projects, hobbies or business ventures. Romance may also be in the cards! Take some risks, do things you’ve never done before and have some fun. You’re ready for a major rejuvenation in your life − children could be a positive influence in your life, reminding you how to kick up your heels and play! You may find it helpful to review what was going on in your life when this same cycle was in effect 12 years ago (10/25/05 –11/23/06).
Once Jupiter begins its new 13-month transit of SAGITTARIUS on 11/8/18, you’ll be redirecting your enthusiasm into work and health matters. You’ll want to make your workplace a more positive, inspiring place to be. It’s also an optimal year to upgrade your health; exercise, relaxation techniques, mediation and a spiritual practice could be especially beneficial to your well=being, along with pets. You’ll be lucky in finding helpful doctors and healers if you need them.
