Introduction to the 2018 Annual Horoscopes

The overall tone of the year is shown in the broad strokes of polarity and element emphasis. This means that of the two polarities which are active and passive and within those the four elements fire, earth, air and water, the passive or feminine polarity will feature strongly this year.

Each polarity and element is measured by the number of planets transiting at any one time which changes throughout the year. If many planets reside in positive signs when they eventually move into a negative sign there is a release of energy much like static electricity. The same goes for negative to positive planetary shifts. Over time the charge between positive and negative energy builds up and is released.

Often planets are more comfortable in one element than another and whether it is a move for good or not depends on the individual planet and the new sign it enters. The day a planet enters a sign is potent and the effect can last a week or two.

Polarity Emphasis

This year starts with an emphasis on the negative polarity. The passive signs are Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces. These signs are more reclusive and absorptive. The passive or feminine signs are either earth or water. The passive sign dominance is only broken early in the year by Uranus in fire until May when it too steps into an earth sign.

The three earth signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn and mid year these three signs have the tenants of Uranus in Taurus, and Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter and Neptune are both in the water signs of Scorpio and Pisces respectively. This brings in the other feminine element. In early November the biggest planet leaves water and slips into its home fire sign Sagittarius. It is at this time that the earth/water element grip eases somewhat and fiery inspiration will again take place.

There are no outer planets in air this year at all. The dominance for the passive signs shows a shift towards responding or reacting to situations rather than being dynamic and active. Elemental shifts are slow and over the years they change the tone of the background of the astrology for each day of the year.

There are soft aspects with Jupiter sextile Pluto, and Jupiter trine Neptune as well as Saturn trine Uranus. All the major aspects between the superior planets are in passive signs. We see no hard aspects from Jupiter outwards which again reinforces the passive nature of the background energy. To create some drive this year you need to wait for the Sun, Moon and inner planets to pass through air or fire signs.

Personal Planet Retrogrades

Mercury’s retrograde periods occur in the three fire signs. This brings triple hot spots to the year during March/April, July/August and November/December as the fire element is emphasized. Venus also retrogrades from a water sign to an air sign and draws in some much needed Libran balance again in November. Mars retrogrades from a light air sign back into an earth sign which happens around the end of June for the whole of July and into early August.

Passive Dominance

Overall 2018 will be a year that promotes the female over the male and the passive over the active. This is a twelve month period for absorbing what was ejected on a cosmic level in previous years and reflecting on choices made last year. The mood will be to be more inclusive and accepting than ever before.

Financial markets will be slow and growth will mainly be in the collective. Big business will not see expansion but the independent contractor will rise to be huge over this time period. As the smart phone establishes itself as the tool of the age more older people (over sixty) will drive commerce as they get online in larger numbers than ever before.

Multi-tasking will start to decline as the rise of the specialist will begins to dominate. Specialization requires focus and empathy. To be an expert you need to stay in your lane and stick to what you know. This year you need to own your niche because to be a Jack-of-all-trades will not work this year.

If you do have more that one string to your bow then establish yourself independently of each one to maintain the expert tone for your brand. For example, if you bake cakes and want to sell you baked goods to a store or start an online business you have to tighten your specialization. Don’t just bake everything, bake cakes. Don’t just bake cakes, bake lemon cakes. Be the ultimate resource for lemon cakes. Take control and own lemon cakes so tightly that you are it. When someone thinks lemon cake they think of you. Of course you can use this analogy to anything you do, be it manufacturing widgets or providing services. Know who you are and be that person.

Saturn as Taskmaster

Daily rituals and chores will dominate the big picture. Be aware of details and timing. The planetary timekeeper Saturn is in its own sign of Capricorn and is the final dispositor for much of the year. This means that Saturn will have the ultimate say through its attributes. The ringed planet is big on discipline, fair pay for fair work, taking responsibility for oneself and mastering skills. Achievements will come for those who deserve them. You have to pay your dues to benefit in a year when Saturn dominates the chart for most of the months.

Saturn also rules clocks, watches and time. Take your time and pick your moment this year. There is a time to laugh and a time to cry, a time to reap and a time to sow. Saturn rules old people as they have experienced their second Saturn return.

Summary

This year will be quieter but there is more going on under the surface. People will be living privately and doing wonderful things in their own homes. Those on the fringes of society will have a better chance to grip their footing and build themselves a better life. Immigration will become an issue to be properly addressed as countries find new ways to home thousands of people seeking an improved existence elsewhere.

The feminine will be prominent. Love will be a strong theme and acceptance a given. Food, clean water and being nurtured will improve for everyone as the desirability for care and consideration for others becomes the norm. Broad cultural changes will be brought about by this year’s planetary placements.

Broadview for Aquarius

Your planet Uranus is changing signs this year from Aries to Taurus and this means more change for all Aquarians. In 2018 from April onwards will be a time to take your life onto a surer footing and shoring up the foundations. You will probably move home and start afresh if that is your desire.

The nagging fears that you are not good enough will continue in the back of your mind but this year the heavy planet Saturn will bring some form to any fears so you can almost see your hesitation and in doing so overcome. You will learn that there is nothing to fear except fear itself. Coupled with this the dreamy planet Neptune is in your area related to self-worth which continues the theme of uncertainty.

For all Aquarians the continuing presence of Pluto in your secrets sector will be formalized by Saturn there for a couple of years. Over the course of the next two years you will be able to build something of value and it may be done in private. This could mean simply being less available for all and sundry or it could imply that you will construct something through research or by spending more time immersed in books, art or in other places where collections of things happen.

Jupiter is still strong in your career zone and will provide endless opportunities but you still need to carefully decide what is the one for you. There may be more than you can deal with at once so the knack will be to choose wisely.

Jupiter will bring gravitas to your social life from November 28th and the Christmas season promises to be lots of fun. Your social calendar will be bulging with events, openings and escapes to be selected. Enjoy the opportunities offered and live it up at the end of the year.

The subdued planet Chiron moves into your school and study zone on April 24th. This can play out as you helping others by sharing your knowledge or you could be called to give a talk or guide others forward through your knowledge and experience. If giving advice is your habit then this will bring it forward so you can reach many more people.

On January 21st the Sun enters your sign and brings light to your life. You can stand tall and be yourself. This is always a good time for Aquarians and the energy brought this month will invigorate you for the whole year. Get out and about and live life to the full.

The solar eclipse on February 15th is in your sign of the water bearer. This brings the energy of the eclipse home for you. If your birthday is the day before or the day after it will also affect you strongly. This eclipse is at the north node and this mean you will be focused on the future and where you are going. Any people that you meet on these three days will have an impact on your life. Pay attention to casual contacts which can grow to beautiful relationships.

After the third week of March you will be busy in and around your area. There may be short trips and errands that have to be run which will take much of your day. This is a month for small and varied events and a weekend away may break the tedium.

On April 16th your planet Uranus is enmeshed with the New Moon in your group area. This brings a hot spot to your social life and you can expect invitations and new people to meet around that time. Aquarians typically have many friends to start with but if truth be said most are acquaintances.

On July 27th the second eclipse this year in the sign of Aquarius brings more focused energy to bear on your sign. The total lunar eclipse is more inwards looking than the earlier February eclipse. The mood is reflective and you can tap into feelings as the Moon is covered by the Earth’s shadow. This is a longer lasting eclipse in time but the effects will be around six months for Aquarians. If your birthday is before the day, on the day or on the day after this eclipse you will have six months ahead of you for more inner contemplations. People from your past will come forward at the eclipse and try to influence you again. Be circumspect and choose carefully those you allow to feature in your lives. You left them in the past once before and they may not have a place in your life now.

During the four weeks from August 21st to September 21st you will experience a time that is slower and it is like the brakes are on. This is not the time to start things anew but rather to consolidate what you have achieved and to acknowledge the progress you have made. Trim all fat now and shore up your strengths. You will know where you are strong and where you are weak. You do not have to be everything to everyone so be one thing for yourself. Draw a line under this time and move forward lighter and leaner.

During November your planet reverts to the previous sign for the rest of the year. This will afford you the time to reassess your life and make plans for the following year. Take this time to say good byes to people and places that no longer serve you. You know in your heart of hearts what has to be done.

After the equinox on September 23rd you will be viewed favourably for a loan or a mortgage. The other reality may be that you become a lender yourself or you are asked to stand surety for someone. Be wary of these requests.

Plan a break or a little holiday for after October 23rd and choose a retreat where you can learn something whilst being away from home. Not every escape has to be in a night club and you will enjoy a back to nature place with perhaps a morning of art or music thrown in.

From late November the focus is on your reputation and how others see you. If you have crafted a beautiful public persona or worked hard to promote yourself in a positive way this will become public knowledge now.

Take a break from business in the last week of the year. Make time for friends. Spend your time appreciating those who have stood by you this year and give thanks to them. Little gifts from the heart or a delicate candle will be well received.

As a Pisces you have to try hard to not be pushed around by others. It takes time to understand how you really feel or what essentially matters to you yourself. If you find you are being swayed by persuasive people stop and take a moment to think about what you are doing.
