A new year is generally a catalyst for changes, sometimes whether we like it or not. 2018 is shaping up to be a magnificent year to embrace the life changes up ahead, and astrology is here to assist you along the way. The stars call to us from above, and rain their energy upon us – seasoning everything we do with a celestial glow.
It can be difficult when things in our lives seem to tumble upside-down, moving every which way but forward; but these changes are what shape who we are and prepare us for the success that is bound to manifest in our futures. Astrology gives you the advantage of knowing when to begin expecting these shifts, whether they are subtle or drastic.
Following the path and transitions of the stars gives us insight into our own paths, and supports us during our own transitions.
The astrological forecasts of the year call for inspiring transformations of the soul, as well as interesting developments in our external lives. The lunar eclipse that will take place on January 31 marks the beginning of the positive, transformative energies coming toward us this year.
Use the energy of the moon to enhance your fluid, adaptable nature during this eclipse and be sure to profess your gratitude for her wisdom and protection.
On February 15, a solar eclipse will emerge, warming our bones to the shifts and revolutions that are bound to step forth. Take in the heat of the sun, embracing its aura and allowing it to open your heart to whatever the universe brings you during the upcoming seasons.
An eclipse always provides soothing energy that propels one toward transformation, and the lunar eclipse followed by that of the solar variety are two events that perfectly kick start this, the year of beautiful changes.
Starting March 22 and lasting until April 15, Mercury will go retrograde, which can cause potential irritations, however, this is a wonderful time to reflect on the past and plan for the future. This is not a time to begin projects or make extensive travel plans.
Try to stay upbeat, allowing the technological and interpersonal struggles that accompany Mercury retrograde to wash over you. Mercury goes retrograde again at the end of July, and lasts from July 25 until August 18.
From September 9 until September 10, Venus will dwell in Scorpio, which may bring a new romance, or add sparks to an existing relationship. This can also cause upsets in relationships, so be prepared to pick your battles and listen with an open heart. This year is an excellent year to develop and change our communication skills, particularly with loved ones.
As Uranus enters Sagittarius in early November, we are urged to make technological innovations and travel internationally. This will certainly be a time of modifications to our usual routine, in a pleasant and progressive manner.
The stars bring us many opportunities to reflect on who we’ve been and begin the transformation to who we want to become. This year provides the appropriate energies for becoming resilient entities with an aptitude for adaptation. Allow astrology to guide your golden path, and follow the stars to your fate.
