~ Time to Make it Real ~
If 2017 was a year of new beginnings, 2018 is going to be a year of building, restructuring, and manifestation as three of the five outer planets will reside in earth signs.
The cataclysmic shift that began in 2012 and culminating in 2016 forced upon us strong “death and rebirth” processes that spit us out completely transformed at the dawn of a new cycle in 2017. 2018 it is time to roll up our sleeves and ground this higher vibration into the earth in order to begin to manifest this new world paradigm into form.
2018 Major Collective Trends:
Pluto in Capricorn 2008-2023
Pluto, ruler of the underworld, death, and transformation has been in the sign of Capricorn- ruler of the structures of our society- since 2008. Pluto has been slowly chipping away at society’s failing systems forcing the outdated and egocentric structures to disintegrate so that we may move towards more sustainable and humane living in order to ensure survival of the species. We are at a serious crossroads. Reform or perish.
Jupiter in Scorpio October 10th- November 18th 2018:
Jupiter, the “Great Expander” is spending a year in Scorpio, the ruler of shadow, sex and Soul. Wherever Jupiter travels it enhances the energies. In intense and powerful Scorpio.. we can expect an emergence of deep unconscious material to rise to the surface. The “shadow’ is the part of our being that we deny, avoid, judge, or fear. Our issues, wounds, and complexes basically. Both personally and collectively expect to see the s#*t flying around!
Scorpio also rules our sexuality as well as the Soul. Expect sexual shadow material to be exposed, but also embrace the emerging inspiration to learn about the the connection between the union of the divine masculine and feminine energies that is a portal to the ascension process.
Saturn in Capricorn Dec 19, 2017- Dec 17, 2020:
With Saturn in Sagittarius for the last 2.5 years we were in a deep exploration of our religious, spiritual, and philosophical beliefs. Now with Saturn’s ingress into Capricorn on December 19th we embark upon a new period where basically, the rubber meets the road and we are will be required to ‘practice what we preach’ so to speak, and bring these new visions, ideals, and beliefs into form.
It is the time to get serious about creating the new structures in our lives to support the necessary realignment towards more sustainable living and connection to holistic and spiritual ideals.
Saturn rules the foundations and structures of our lives and requires discipline, patience, realism and just plain hard work. Symbolized by the mountain goat, our progress can at times feel slow going, but one step at a time we are climbing the mountain of success, and the ground that is laid ensures stability and rootedness that will be necessary for the future.
Saturn is also the Lord of Karma. This will be a year where we will ‘reap what we sow’. Integrity is a a key word for Saturn and no shortcuts or shady business will fly. Saturn brings in universal law… for those who are in alignment, this can be a year of great earthly reward.
Uranus in Taurus May 16- April 2026:
Uranus, moves into Taurus, another earth sign in May this year. Uranus is the planet of rebellion, freedom, radicalism and revolution here to catalyze our evolution through abrupt (often shocking) change that wakes us up out of complacency or outdated systems and propels us towards the more progressive means that will ensure humanity’s evolution.
Taurus, is the “Artist-Priestess” archetype, and is also the awareness of the body as the temple and vessel that holds the tantric mysteries of the connection between the sacred and sexual energies. Uranus moving through will activate this knowledge and propel seekers on this path to realize their capacity to attain higher levels of consciousness through these ancient practices.
This alignment will also inspire us to reassess our values, and align them with the ‘we’ vs ‘me’ mentality. Understanding that the way of the lone wolf is far gone and that we must live with the awareness of unity consciousness. Again, reform or perish.
North Node in Leo:
The Nodes are known a our ‘destiny line’. They have to do with our karmic journey and our Soul’s contract. This year the North is in Leo the sign ruled by the Sun, encouraging us to shine brighter than ever.
Leonian qualities are that of leadership, personal creativity, and the radiant spark that makes us special and unique. The way in which we present ourself to the world. The way in which we allow ourselves to shine and show up fully, unabashed, secure, confident and radiant… Or not.
We are living in such a time on the planet where we are all needed to contribute our best. We each have a very unique and significant piece of the collective (Aquarius- South Node) puzzle, that is not only valuable but necessary for the evolution of humanity.
When we are running the energy of our greatness, we are plugged into Source energy, and our lives are activated on all levels. Through allowing ourselves to truly show up and shine, we are also energetically giving other people permission to do the same!
