2018 comes in with a bang full of astrological magic bringing a Full Moon in Cancer which asks us – what do we value, with our hearts? While Saturn had already moved into Capricorn on the 21st of December, this placement is going to be rather strict when it comes to building foundations, which are based on a more spiritual or sentimental value, rather than the physical – but nonetheless does effect the physical in a more harmonious way.
Many have already felt the cosmos demolish old structures or even ideals that we had once been living comfortably, well, miserably, but we had grown so used to it, that we had found comfort within the familiar, even if it had hurt us before. Our eyes are now open, and we can see the truth – we can see where we are, feeling present, and we can envision clearly on where our steps our taking us. Its time to invoke a massive change, or shift within our hearts, and enviroments, so we can allow what is rightfully due to us, to take form.
Uranus, opposes Saturn as it moves direct into Aries on January 2nd, and thrashes into our World with heavy fists full of chaos, smashing everything that holds us back from our true potential, or that higher purpose we feel so strongly connected to now. Let go, or be dragged. Accept the changes, and understand that there is a method behind all of this madness – to shake you awake so to change your life into something that makes you feel content with living.
Just over a week later on January 11th, Venus moves into Capricorn which is going to pull us into a urge to commit, or cling onto something that is worth investing into. This isn’t a fly-by-night kind of urge, but something which inspires us to put in the work towards things, or relationships, which will promote growth and provide the comfort as well as dependability we need. Not only is this day significant astrologically, but also numerological as it symbolizes “111”, as activation, or awakening code. This is when our hearts zap awake, and take a real critical view of our already established relationships, or creative projects, to determine whether or not they are working for us, or hindering us. Does your lover, friends, or family support your goals and dreams? Do you see a future, a realistic and happy future, with where you currently are? These big questions may have already been downloaded by many when Saturn moved into Capricorn, and so that next step in attaching to things which do promote that growth will be the next step.
A few days later, we have a New Moon in Capricorn. This New Moon is heavy with goal reaching and intentions for growth within your partnerships, or business. If you want to set any intentions that involve your physical reality, finances, or 5-year plan, then this is the New Moon to do it. Taking action and reaching for the things we want, is the energy this Moon bestows upon us.
January begins to move at a much faster pace as Venus leaves Capricorn and bounces into Aquarius on the 17th, and joined by the Sun on the 19th. Our social life, close friends, family and relationships are still highlighted as we bask in the sign of friendships and innovation. For those who have busy working away with all of that Capricorn energy within the first few weeks of the year, then this may serve as a good time to break away and enjoy yourselves, and to have a little fun with good friends.
On January 26th Mars moves in Sagittarius which is going to push us to shoot for the stars. Mars in Scorpio is good with acting on the things we desire, but is better for planning, scoping things out, and working with forces beyond others control in order to bring what you desire to you as well. When it enters Sagittarius, this is going to be much like a glimpse of those intentions manifesting, giving us a sign that what we are working on, or thinking with much intent, is taking form. This energy can be quite impulsive, especially with the sun and Venus in Aquarius, and so it is wise not to bulldoze through into things we haven’t quite researched well enough into yet.
January ends with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo on the 31st, while last year we had one in Aquarius, while the sun was in Leo, as well as close to Lions Gate on 8/8, this year we experience the opposite, and I do not feel it will be as intense, but more of a “ending cycles” which had been in the works around august of last year, and so we can finally ascend past that and move forward onto newer experiences.
What Does January Have in Store for Your Zodiac Sign?

It seems that there are many promises made, that have not been kept. Something bright and shiny caught your eye, Aries, but some deep research of your own is needed before you jump in head first. While you are a sign of impulse, and you go where the wind takes you, you need to slow it down and really consider opportunities that are presented before you take flight on them.
Others might be making something sound much better than it actually is, and you need to be careful before taking their word for it. You feel more energized and eager to pave down new roads, but not all that glitters is made of gold.

A change of heart can be a good thing, if you chose to go with what serves your soul. You are doing a personal inventory this month on things which touch your heart, rather than feed your ego. This new year, you are looking to dig a little deeper within yourself to really find what you need when it comes to serving Higher Self. You will not take things at face-value anymore and can’t help but look for depth within everything you see. Don’t resist this urge to do some soul-searching the month, and dive deeper. It’s time, Taurus, to find a purpose which resonates with your higher-calling, and to really commit yourself to venturing down that path.
You are looking into the long-term value within things that you want to carry into the new year. Is it worth the effort? Will the rewards be as fulfilling as you hope? These are important questions you are considering – however – you must be careful with getting too far into your heart, and rather let your heart lead you.

Gemini, the only way you can get out of this slump is if you chose to change your perspective. Of course you are a sign capable of adopting many different views, but it seems you are stuck within one, and it isn’t doing you any good but constricting your World even more. You have to branch out, and look at opportunities elsewhere which offer the peace you desire.
Perhaps you are blaming yourself, or are still pointing the finger at others for something which you need to learn how to let go. Forgiveness is key
II the High Priestess
No one likes secrets, Cancer, and it seems that they rule your life this month. Something is going to come out in the open that will cause some changes in your plans, and it might be a bit upsetting, but alas… the truth shall set you free. Embrace the changes that come with the realizations and you will find a better direction to venture down.
You feel connected this month, and highly in tune. As the first day of the year approaches, it is celebrated with a Cancer moon which is going to hit you hard when it comes to spiritual downloads and insights into things which were hidden in the dark. You can no longer hide from your truth, and feel the need to express it. Do it, and those who will listen with open hearts and minds, will stand by your side.

January is a month of releasing burdens for you, Leo. It is not easy, and it involves a lot of work, but it will most definetly be well worth it. 2018 is a year for you when it all takes form – your prayers, intentions, and the rewards from your past efforts within certain goals and projects you have been working hard at.
However, before you will see any results, or any of these prayers answered, you have to release what pulls you down. You cannot move forward and receive what is rightfully due, if you have something clinging to you that is going to take up the space you need. Let go what drags you down – certain outdated agreements, or obligations are not yours to take hold of, so do not let those whom are incapable to take care of themselves because they choose not to, to place that responsibility within your hands. Remove that added weight which isn’t yours to carry around, and embrace the fresh air that comes in its place

Good things are coming your way, Virgo. You are due for some major rewards and you might even get a glimpse of them manifesting in your environment. The reassurance you needed is coming, so embrace it. You are one to always worry about something, but the gifts that are coming your way this month, are going to not only give you a peace of mind, but also peace within your soul and warmth in your heart.
You are a hard worker, and since you have busted your butt for the things you desire and want, the Universe is going to ensure that the path is cleared away for you to take what’s yours. What’s more important is your attitude – be grateful for the little things, and you will manifest much more. However, you mustn’t stop putting in that hard effort, as this is just the beginning
III the Empress
Libra, you are on fire this month, and all eyes are on you. There is a need to be very careful though, as you could get lost in overindulging in all of those good things which are coming your way this month. Everything seems to going just right for you, but there is a risk of ruining a good thing by taking too much of it. Don’t be greedy, and remember to give back as much as you take to keep the balance.
You have worked hard in doing the self-work as well as applying yourself in other areas, that the Universe sees fit to allow those rewards to rain down upon you. Take them with an open heart, but don’t take more than you are due.

Whatever is breaking your heart, Scorpio, is your catalyst to something greater. You have to bear the pain of what hurts now, and while it is hard, it is the release you need. Let it all out, all the sorrow and whatever makes you feel miserable – no more holding it in and drinking that poison into yourself. While the act of forgiveness will set you free, you must also remember to move your eyes from the past and start focusing on the future. The more you realize there is a path waiting for you that promise more, then it will be easier to pick yourself back up.
You are a sign who naturally swims within the shadows, but this month you will be searching for the light within that darkness so you can reclaim your heart and sense of self. What you had been through, had to shape you into the person you are now. Be thankful for the lessons in 2017 and be ready for the new opportunities which await you in the new year

While 2017 had been a rather rough year for you, because of Saturn taking rulership of your sign, this year you can finally breathe and start building onto the foundation that the lord of karma had restructured for you.
2018 rolls around with results, rewards, and reasons for you to celebrate your hard work. You will have signs to show how successful you are with all you have been working towards. Your efforts have not gone unseen, and January proves this to you.
Do not push past the borders, though, Sagittarius. There are certain rules or boundaries you must abide, otherwise you risk preventing all the rewards to come through. Take what you are given, and be appreciative, as the attitude of gratitude is a sure-fire way to attract more abundance

Time to set new intentions, Capricorn. Your planetary ruler has moved back home into your sign, and as has the Sun. This means its time to get to work, and making those right moves in bringing forth something you desire to materialize. You may have had a sneak peak, or pictured of what could come of it, and its something worth working for. All good things take time, but this new venture is sure to be enjoyable and worth every step you take into it, even if they are just small steps.
You are your goals, investments, and aspirations? 2018 is really pushing you to get busy with it and to start getting the work done that brings about the life you feel is worth living. This isn’t just so much for business, or monetary things, as are your typical goals, this is in alignment with something much deeper than in the material sense, which really strikes a passionate cord with you. Set those intentions, and formulize a plan on how to get what you desire

All good things take time, and a lot of work, Aquarius. You cannot jump into something and expect it to last forever. You have to take that high road and put in the continued effort. You have to take care of things you love, otherwise you risk losing them, or even being distracted by other things and chasing them away with your mixed signals or inconsistency. January calls for you to get serious, and to put in the work required to get what you desire. It is going to be a long road ahead, and it most likely will not be easy. However, this journey is going to change you according to what this higher path calls from you.
Its time to get serious, Aquarius and place your energy into things that you want to really last, and be something you can rely on in the long run. As long as you try, and remind present as well as determined, then you will get what you desire.

January is going to be a busy month for you, Pisces. You are going to joining up with others whom will take you a lot further than you could go if on your own. Accept the help that is offered, and watch as your World expands and opens up. Things are starting to take form for you, and you are more than thrilled to jump through the next step. While this month does seem to be rather pleasant for you, do not forget all the work that is going to come along with it. While you want to sit and dream of what could come next, its time to put in the work and make that happen. All of the tools are coming to you, and even support within your environment. You got this, Pisces, and you are going to receive so much more than you could imagine – if you put in the work.
You might be a bit nervous about taking that next step because you can feel things changing for you in big ways, so find that little bit of courage and make it happen. Count on those around you to pitch in where it counts.
