The year begins with you focused on home and family matters. In fact, a new long-term influence in effect will challenge you to nurture familial ties, and build sturdier foundations. Discipline will be required; the more effort put forth, the greater the reward. This involves moving past insecurities regarding domestic matters, and being your own authority when it comes to your emotional well-being.
Meanwhile, eclipses in February bring a shift, as you leave behind a group or company to focus on your own creative ventures (whether that be a child, or an entrepreneurial launch!). A new start sees you living and being your most authentic self, and significant others feature as well. In fact, relationship activity picks up during the spring, and there may be some back and forth between you and a partner. Decisions will not be final until around the end of April, so bide your time. You may be committing in a union (business or personal) that has been rocky for quite some time, or severing a tie entirely. No matter the experience, you will be standing on sturdier ground when all is said and done.
The summer of 2018 presents some of our most choppy cosmic weather of the year. Three eclipses, instead of the standard two, influence significant turning points for each of us. For you, this involves a romance, creative venture, or activity with children. A build-up of energy begins around summer solstice; you will be asserting yourself in a love affair or artistic venture, and coming up against severe obstacles. A hard “stop/no,” courtesy of the lunar eclipse in July, will force you to cease all activities, and find another way around obstacles.
Career matters are highlighted too. A new professional beginning that comes courtesy of the July solar eclipse could be the result of you completing a creative project that is ready to be launched. A second solar eclipse in August, meanwhile, sees you aligning yourself in a new company or organization. The summer months will be funky months, indeed, with even more minor delays involving new group affiliations in August. All delays will begin to move forward by September.
The fall brings calmer cosmic weather as energy picks up around money and resources. This is a theme in effect all year that could increase your earnings, and influence greater abundance. A reassessment is in order with property, possessions, and compensation – this is especially true if you are purchasing a big ticket-item. Some back and forth is possible starting October through November; try to avoid making any major financial decisions.
The end of 2018 brings increased engagements with others – siblings, friends, neighbors, etc. Misunderstandings are possible too, but all will be resolved before we enter the new year. You may even find yourself in a new educational setting that expands mental stimulation. Broader knowledge and learning is highlighted – this new theme will be in effect throughout all of 2019.
Happy New Year, Libra!
