Time flies like an arrow as they say, and indeed it does, with 2018 upon us. With the important transit of
Saturn into your ninth house
of higher education and expansion of your mental horizons, you will find you're limited in being able to make inroads in these areas as fast as you’d like.
Slow and steady wins the race over the coming 12 months. Pluto, the Sun, Venus and Saturnoccupy this keykarmic area of your horoscope as the year starts. This simply means you've got a lot invested in this part of your life. Let's see if the return on investment will be worth it this year.

Many of you will be looking at furthering your education, exploring different cultures or even travelling so that any intellectual study is practicality transposed onto your actual personal experience. This next two and half years are going to shape your views and opinions on many different areas of life and you need to remain open to the possibilities in your life. At times, this will be challenging because of the constrictive nature of Saturn and, as they say, old habits die hard. Saturn is in effect your best planet so don't worry too much that these challenges will stop you dead in your tracks. Rather, focus you on what's essential and what isn't. That is also the job of Pluto, currently transiting exactly the same area only for a much longer period of time and works on the deepest recesses of your subconscious and unconscious nature. Saturn will simply make these aspects of your personality more visible and bring them to the surface for you to deal with them. In some cases, Saturn will manifest these internal challenges as external people, events and circumstances.
Be mindful that all the while you are dealing with yourself and only yourself.
Mars and Jupiter occupy the seventh house of your horoscope as the year commences and this shows you're determined to expand your relationships and make them more interesting, exciting and well, just better! This combination of planets has the reputation of causing you to be a little over-enthusiastic though. It's important not expect too much from any romantic situation for the time being and that perhaps it’s time to allow the relationship to develop and grow on its own a little. Let it blossom in and of itself into what it is you've dreamed it to be. This could be a case of pushing your partner too fast, at a pace they're not necessarily comfortable with.
For singles reading this, Mars and Jupiter give you the confidence to go out and meet people and connect with those who have a really warm and jovial attitude to life. This cycle will uplift your spirits.
With Uranus continuing its transit in your 12th house of spirituality, charity and expenditure, this electrifying and often surprising planet will add a touch of uncertainty to your affairs in these areas. Not that this is anything new because its transit is a continuation of the past few years. The lesson is to bring these energies under control but this may be a little difficult especially with the Sun and Venus challenging this point in the early part of 2018. To deal with boredom or habitual routine, you may suddenly decide to change the course of your life as life itself throws you a curve ball which you aren’t prepared for. Work and love may be in for some topsy-turvy times when you least expect it.
Uranus reveals some important developments in its motion on January 3 when it goes stationary/direct and then on May 16 when it transits your Sun sign. The next seven years or so be full of surprises and your sign of the bull will experience a most interesting challenge as your sense of security, stability and desire to maintain the status quo will be challenged.
Change is something you don’t easily acceptespecially when you yourself haven’t made those changes but with this planetary transit you will be forced to re-evaluate your approach to life generallyand may even start to embrace the idea of change and the unknown. This difficulty in adapting may be more pronounced when Uranus makes its retrograde motion on August 8and later on November 7 retrogressing back into your 12th house to, in a way, change and help you to assimilate the rather big shifts in your awareness at this time.
Jupiter the planet of expansion is fortunate for most of the year up until November 8 during which time, as mentioned earlier, brings with it favourable opportunities in your relationships-personal and business. It is also protective so that any problems you may be experiencing are softened considerably by this transit of the beneficial and largest planet in the solar system, Jupiter, looking directly at your Sun sign throughout most of the year. The focus shifts after November when the eighth house is activated. This part of your horoscope represents shared money, wills, legacies and also, to some extent, the hidden psychological part of your personality. If you haven’t dealt with these aspects of yourself, Jupiter will possibly bring them up and maybe even amplify the more trivial elements of your psyche.
You must be careful not to overemphasize or project feelings of inadequacy on others during this changeover period.
Idealistic Neptune receives favourable aspect from Mars and Jupiter and continues to transit your 11th house of friendships and lifelong vision. This means you can meet people that are on par with your spiritual aspirations in 2018 and because the Mars-Jupiter combination is very expansive, you’ll feel a measure of growth in your emotional, mental and spiritual dimensions. There are a couple of exceptions to this with some of the hard aspects of the year creating considerable confusion in your mind.
Do take care February 17 when Mars squares Neptune and then again on May 8 when Venus does the same. Mercury and Sun will be squaring Neptune on June 7, with Venus opposing it on July 25.
These dates need to be taken into consideration especially when negotiating business or personal agreements. Venus in particular, and its difficult aspects can throw your relationships into a tailspin through either lack of investigation, questioning or simply putting others on a pedestal. Difficult dates later include September 8-14, December 6 and December 25 when the Sun and Mercury blur communication.
What's happening in your love life and social arena?
Your relationships are powerfully influenced by Pluto and Mars, love affairs by Mercury and friendships by Neptune and Jupiter. Venus is the natural ruler of love and affection.
As Mercury is in your eighth house at the start of 2018, you’re looking for a deeper more meaningful relationship as shown by this probing element of Mercury in this position. You'll be probing deeper than the usual superficial communication level to understand the motivation behind your partner’s and your own emotions. There’s a more a light-hearted approach to romance when Mercury transits your ninth house of exploration on January 11, and later your 11th house of social interaction on February 18. As mentioned earlier, when Mercury transits Neptune on or about the 25th, you should be careful not to impulsively stash your eggs in one basket romantically. You rash judgement is also shown by the aspect of Mercury to Mars around March 1. Disputes follow these sorts of transits.
Relationships hinge on great communication and negotiation throughout the middle of the year with an opportunity to lift your ball game and to make greater meaning of conversations with loved ones. On May 19, Venus moves to your third house bringing with it pleasant interactions and again, Mercury and Sun on June 13 and 21 respectively add humour and light-heartedness to the mix. This is also a time when you travel with your spouse or partner and enjoy sharing similar activities and pastimes.
The fifth house relates to love affairs and for singles, the transit of Venus to this area of your horoscope on July 10 is an excellent omen suggesting new relationships or improvement in existing ones.
The Sun also transits this area on October 23 along with Mercury on September 6 and so, this will add a spark of life and vitality to your friendships and love affairs. There's every likelihood those of you on the lookout for a soulmate might find someone who fits the bill during this combination of transits.
Mars is also one of your strong contenders for love and marriage being the ruler of your seventh house and is strongly associated with Jupiter indicating a lucky combination for marital affairs. There may however be differences of opinion culturally as the North Node squares this pair. Getting on the same page as your partner is essential for a smooth emotional path in the coming 12 months. The difficulties associated with this transit are most notable on January 3, February 17 when Mars squares Neptune, again on May 16 when the square of Uranus brings with it unexpected twists and turns in your love life, yet again the same on August 2 and September 19 with November 20 indicating excessive interactions which could make either of you jump to conclusions.
On the other hand, Mars offers you some wonderful sexual and romantic interludes when it creates favourable aspects during its transits and in particular, around April 15 and April 24 with the sextile aspect to Neptune and Jupiter helping fulfil your ideals in this respect. Passion is intense when Mars makes contacts with Pluto on January 9, April 26 and again on December 17. Pencil these dates into your diary for those special weekends away if you can afford the time.
Mars and Jupiter are well-known as bringing with them an expansive and exciting energy to your relationships and that seems to be the theme for you with this powerful and very important conjunction taking place. Jupiter alone is extremely lucky but with the added involvement of Mars, it shows that your relationship improvements happen only through proactive deeds on your part. Rather than waiting around hoping that things will improve the onus is on you to make things work. To the extent that you take one step forward towards your lover, partner or spouse, you can expect that same response from them.
There's an intimate link between areas of friendship in your horoscope and marriage with Neptune transiting your 11th house while this conjunction of Mars and Jupiter is in your seventh house. The powerful triangular aspect of Mars and Jupiter to this idealistic planet shows that a foundation of friendship is essential for your marital affairs to get back on track if they haven’t been all that you’ve expected in the recent past. On the other hand, friendships will also be expanded by this unique and powerful combination energies. You will want to expand your circle of friendship and so your network should grow and also your intimate friendships increase.
In the latter part of the year, Venus will transit your marital sector on September 9, Mercury on October 10 and the Sun on October 23. This accentuates the marital aspects of your life.
For some of you of marriageable age, this could be the time when you decide that you’d like to cement your relationships and give greater commitment to the one you love. Both Mercury and Venus indicate that this will be a period of intense review as both these planets transit this area twice due to the retrograde movement.
There’s no need to rush anything. Take your time and make sure your decisions are based on observation not just emotional impulse.
Neptune is well known for creating and over idealistic attitude and for this reason, you must be careful that you don’t see more of someone than is actually there. The danger is that you may place new friends on a pedestal and only after some time realise that their humanness means they are just as likely to err as you.
Is it going to be a successful year for you Taurus?
Mercury and Jupiter are powerful planets indicating favourable opportunities in money matters throughout 2019. The bright Moon on January 1 ensures you’re clever if not a little over emotional about how you handle money in the 12 months that follow.
Because Mars and Jupiter favourably influence your zone of partnerships as mentioned earlier, this could also spill over into your business activities indicating new found associations that bolster your business and professional activities. You need to be careful not to overestimate or promise too much which you later discover you can’t deliver on. On January 7, Mars is in conjunction with Jupiter while the Sun, Venus and Mercury make fortifying sextile aspects to the same heralding new contractual opportunities and practical insights as shown by the position in Capricorn.
The finance area of your horoscope has the favourable influence of Venus after May 19th and then again Mercury and Sun on June 13 and 21 respectively. During this period however, you are likely to make promises you can’t maintain as shown by the opposing Sun to Jupiter on May 9 and Mercury in the same position on May 23. This could have ramifications for you especially if contracts are involved particularly around July 9 when Mercury comes to the square of Jupiter. Mars also moves into adverse square aspect of November 20. These dates punctuate challenging times when you need to be a little more careful.
Have your wits about you especially when dealing with other businesspeople who will be obviously more ruthless than you are.
With the transit of Saturn and Pluto both in your ninth house of legal matters, it may be timely to mention the importance of not underestimating the impact these planets have when dealing with lawyers, solicitors and other bureaucrats. There could be challenges and situations that are out of your control. Please note that Saturn will remain in this part of your horoscope for almost two and half years so whatever decisions you make during this period are likely to have long-term ramifications.
Earlier I mentioned you should take your time, research your topic thoroughly and don’t necessarily jump the gun by thinking that everything offered is the best thing since sliced bread. Approach all negotiations with skillful insight and don’t be afraid to ask for more information.
Saturn is indeed your best planet so it’s not a bad idea to play devil’s advocate even though it’s likely to bring some flack from others but nevertheless positive benefits in your business activities. Most importantly Saturn as the ruler of your 10th house along with Uranus, promises to open doorways to foreign markets especially if you’re looking at an import or export style business. Studying other cultures and also different currencies may be part of your learning curve throughout 2018.
It’s also worth noting Uranus, co-ruler of your 10th house is in the 12th house of foreign affairs. You may be surprised by unexpected opportunities that arise through friends in these remote areas or even foreign countries. Your business may take you outside of your usual region of activity. You should embrace these opportunities but again, the stress is on doing your homework and not being gullible.
One area that people overlook is the work environment and those you have to work with. This is governed by the sixth house of your horoscope which is the sign of Libra. Your ruling planet, Venus once again transits this position on August 7 Mercury, and the Sun does the same on September 22 and 23. Venus references this same position on November 1. This is a time for paying attention to how you feel in your workplace, about the environment and also co-workers.
This is also a time to reappraise whether or not the quality of your work is being adversely affected by these factors. Even if you’re earning good money, what’s the point if you’re not at all happy with the circumstances you're in? This could be a time when you seriously reconsider your options. There's every possibility you may be offered something exciting in the way of new work particularly when Mercury enters into a sextile aspect with Venus leading up to August 19. This is likely a speculative manouever shown by the August 23 transit of the Sun to the fifth house. Don’t read too much into what's offered because Mercury makes a square to Jupiter and the Sun on August 28 and 30 respectively. This means you may not be at all realistic.
During this coming year, you have a stacked ninth house featuring Pluto, the Sun, Venus and Saturn. This shows just how strongly weighted the issue of spirituality and higher learning is for you now. With your ruling planet Venus, near the ruler of the ninth, Saturn, and these planets in the company of transformative Pluto, your belief systems are going to be challenged on every level.
Perhaps you’re realizing that spiritual or religious concepts in one’s mind need to be bridged with the practical reality of life for them to be deemed workable. Have you outgrown some of these beliefs? Are you being challenged by others who no longer believe the same things as you? Your relationships are also now in the same boat where you are moving leaps and bounds ahead of those you were once on par with? This can create a rift because religious or spiritual beliefs are the essence of one’s inner being. Once there's a distance, you either have to chain yourself to the past and to what you believe are outmoded systems of living, you have to free yourself and move forward on your unique path towards greater understanding and inner fulfillment. In not doing this, you disempower yourself.
Mars gives you considerable impetus to make a change in your spiritual life by actively involving yourself in practices that accelerate your spiritual evolution. On March 18 again on August 13, Mars transits this ninth house. The momentum you gain at this time may be stifled by the conjunction with Mars on April 3. But this is short lived and by May 16 when Mars transits your 10th house of personal achievement and professional activities, you’ll be in a better position to practically apply what you’ve learned.
Yoga, meditation and deep spiritual enquiry will be able to give you a greater level of performance in work and relationships. The conjunction of Saturn could simply be those resistant forces or what you are afraid reflecting as inadequacies in yourselves. You mustn’t let this deter you from continuing on your path to the greater spiritual excellence throughout 2018.
