We begin the year in Capricorn season – Happy Birthday to you! The first day of the year comes with a powerful Full Moon; it is the Earth’s way of taking a deep breath as this planet experiences another solar return too. You will feel energized and grounded at the start of the year, motivated to pursue your own personal goals and agenda. This will continue into February’s eclipse season, when chapter changes on the horizon see you focused on money matters. How can you invest in the life you wish to cultivate? You will identify the resources required as you leave behind financial commitments and obligations that restrict your ability to invest.
Meanwhile, the spring months bring increased activity on the home and family front. Relocation is possible, along with new home purchases and renovations. As you attempt to nurture your roots, creating emotional comfort as you focus on close loved ones, there may be some minor delays and setbacks. Hold off until the end of April before making any big family decisions. Domestic matters will be resolved as we enter the month of May – a month that brings yet another shift.
As familial activities are restored, recreational pursuits pick-up! A new cycle comes into effect during the month of May, influencing sudden activity around romance, or involving children. A shake-up is in order that may require you to let loose and explore the pleasurable side of life. This is fertile energy too – brainchildren (artistic ideas) along with physical children feature.
As we enter the summer months of 2018, we enter choppy terrain. Cosmic weather will rock our world, courtesy of three eclipses instead of the standard two. Energy builds as early as summer solstice; you will be asserting yourself in financial matters. Whether you are negotiating a salary, trying to sell property, or paying off an old debt, you can expect to come up against severe delays.
Something of value must be surrendered so that you can merge in a partnership – marriage, business, or financial. Such an investment is possible, along with new relationship beginnings. But a hard end to personal resources and security will be necessary. You will be challenged to find a way around setbacks, with progress being made in early September.
The fall months bring calmer days, and networking will begin to take up more time and energy – possibly career related. This will be an influence in effect all year, as you continue to meet new people, and align yourself with different groups and affiliations. A review is in effect mid-October through November that sees you re-evaluating friendships, and your involvement in an institutional setting. If these support groups stymie personal or professional growth, you may be moving on.
By the end of the year, you will be in a low cycle contemplating big decisions in 2019. There may be some back and forth in December, but once 2018 closes, a new influence will be in effect that encourages you to expand and grow from the inside–out. Your journey will soon deepen, dear Goat.
Happy New Year, Capricorn!
