For many years now you’ve been undergoing a deep process of personal transformation. You’ve been giving birth to the ideal you, the person you want to be. Transformation is not a pretty process, it is not colour co-ordinated or neat but the end result is beautiful. There are many dangers, crises and upheavals involved with this and you’ve been experiencing them all.
Understand that these pains and crises are nothing more than ‘labour pains’, the pains of a new birth. This process is still very much in effect this year and you are learning, first hand, by direct experience what it means to be ‘born again’.
Love and social activities have been difficult in the past two years or so but since mid-2017 there has been marked improvement. You should still feel this improvement in the year ahead.
Intellectual interests have been important for many years and your tastes revolve around spiritual literature, sacred writings, scripture, poetry and the like. This interest continues in the year ahead. You are developing your intellectual powers but with intuition added to them. An intuitive-type intellect is being born in you. This trend also continues in the year ahead.
Home, family and emotional issues haven’t been that important for many years and the main headline of 2018 is the increasing focus on this area of life. Uranus, the planet of change and experimentation, makes a major move (and permanent) into your 4th House. Your career began soaring in 2016 and this trend continues in 2018. A banner career year.
Your social life expands later in 2018 when Jupiter, your Ruling Planet, moves into Libra after September 25th but this is not necessarily bringing romantic love but friendships. You are meeting people of like mind and like interests.
Your most important areas of interest in the year ahead are personal transformation, personal pleasure, the body, image and appearance, communication and intellectual interests, home, family and emotional issues, helping others prosper, sex, death and rebirth, past lives and reincarnation, career until September 25th and friendships, group activities, organisations after September 25th.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment are career until September 25th and friendships, group activities, organizations, health and work after September 25th.
Though your 6th House of Health is not a House of Power and you seem to lack interest here, it’s still a good idea to give this area more attention. First off, health needs to be watched and can’t be taken for granted. Three long-term planets are impacting on you. Second, the North Node of the Moon is in your 6th House of Health all year. This shows that there is happiness and fulfilment in these kinds of pursuits even though you lack the interest. You will enjoy learning about health, taking on health regimes and exploring the nuances of your body.
With both Uranus and Jupiter squaring your Sun, your heart needs to be given more attention. (There are many natural and drugless ways to do this.) Energy levels will tend to be volatile. Sometimes you will have the energy of 10 people and other times almost zero. The main danger is overwork, not recognising your physical limits, pushing your body beyond what it is designed to handle.
Uranus’ move into your 4th House of Home and Family will create a volatile and extremist emotional life. Moods can be ultra-high and then become ultra-low. Too much of this can impact on your physical health. There is a need to cultivate ’emotional equilibrium’. The best way to do this is through meditation exercises (and many of you are deeply involved in this) but others of you might resort to medication. Medication is only a stopgap and doesn’t deal with the real issues but sometimes a stopgap is necessary. It buys time until you can get to the core issues.
Pluto has been in your 1st House of the Body and image for many years now. So there is a detoxing, a refining and a deep cleansing of the body going on. This is not sickness but a flushing out of old and effete matter. Understand this and co-operate with it.
Venus is your Health Planet and she is a fast-moving planet. Over the course of the coming year she will move through 11 of the 12 Signs and Houses of your Horoscope. Your health needs and attitudes will change almost monthly. We (You and I.) will cover these short-term trends in the monthly forecasts.
Venus will make a rare retrograde this year from May 17th to June 27th. That will be the period for reviewing your health regimes, diet and doctors. It will not be a time for making any drastic changes. Wait to make these changes after June 27th (or before May 17th). Your health judgement might not be up to its usually high standards and the overall health situation might not be as you think it is.
Health is going to improve dramatically after September 25th as Jupiter moves away from its stressful alignment with you but until then be sure to rest and relax more, delegate responsibility and tasks where possible and try to work smarter, not harder. Keep a sharp focus on priorities and let lesser things go. If Sagittarius has one problem, it is lack of focus. The world is so interesting that you want to explore everything but focus is exactly what you need these days. The distractions are like leaks in your petrol tank and need to be plugged up. As they say, ‘Keep your eyes on the prize.’
As mentioned, the major new development in the year ahead (and for many years to come) is your interest in home and family issues. This interest really began last year but it was not fully established. Uranus was flitting in and out of your 4th House all year. Now it is there for the next seven years or so.
This is a very important new development. It produces an urge for domestic freedom, an urge to be experimental in family issues and in the actual physical home. There is emotional and psychological experimentation going on. There is an almost irresistible urge to break with all family traditions and with all old domestic patterns. There will be a strong temptation (and this should not be done lightly) to break with all that the family, your parents, ever taught you. The danger here is throwing out the baby with the bath water.
On the purely physical level, this transit shows moves, many moves and serial moves. You are searching for your dream home and no sooner do you find it, when another and even better dream home appears and you want that one. In many cases, there is a constant upgrading of the present home, a constant redecorating and renovating going on. Your home is a work in progress these days, never finished, a constantly evolving thing. New and high-tech gadgetry for the home is very attractive these days and this too will need constant upgrading. No question that you will be investing in these things. Some of you will acquire many homes and flit from one to another when the spirit moves you.
On an emotional level, this transit is showing a break-up of the family and domestic pattern, a break with family members. In many cases it shows the break-up of the actual family through divorce, children moving out, etc. but this NEED NOT happen. It can merely signal major change in the family relationship, in the dynamics of power within the family.
Now is the time to work to instil a ‘team spirit’ in the family. Family activities should be approached as a ‘group activity’, the way you would approach things with friends. The good of the overall family must supersede the good of the individual and each individual is part of the team.
Many of you will experiment with ‘democratic methods’ of running the family and while this has its strong points, you will find that you can’t completely abolish the natural hierarchy. While each individual family member should be given maximum freedom, there still needs to be someone in charge, someone who sets limits.
This is also a period (and this seems very successful) in improving communication between family members. Miscommunication (especially when passions are running high) is a major source of family disharmony. You will also find that miscommunication and misunderstanding are major factors in your personal emotional volatility. Vow not to react until you fully understand what a family member is saying. Don’t put words in his or her mouth. It could be you are justified in your reaction but if you probe more deeply, you might not be.
Most of all, sit loose to the family changes coming up. The whole purpose of this transit is to break undesirable attachments that are harming you (and perhaps the family, too). Later on you will be able to relate in a better, more free and healthier way.
Sagittarius 2018 love horoscope
As mentioned, your love life is much improved over the past few years but your 7th House of Love and Marriage is not a House of Power this year. Though you have more social freedom, you lack the interest. The urge, the fire in the belly for marriage or a serious relationship is absent. In many cases, this absence is coming from the ‘state of fulfilment’. You have what you want and you don’t have any more desire. When you eat that huge slab of chocolate cake, your desire has been fulfilled and is ‘no more’. So, from a romantic perspective, it is a status-quo year where marrieds will tend to stay married and singles will tend to stay single.
Friendships are much more interesting and important than romance this year especially after September 25th. You are reaching out to make new friends. You are the aggressor. You are taking the bull by the horns and developing your friendships and you will have success. The main challenges with friends are financial conflicts or disagreements or perhaps your pursuit of friendships distracts you from financial goals. Perhaps financial barriers prevent you from joining this or that group or organisation or from participating in certain group activities. You will have to balance these two areas.
Mercury is your Love Planet and is a fast-moving planet. He will move through all the Signs and Houses of your Solar Horoscope in the year ahead. Love and romantic opportunity can come to you in a variety of ways. We will discuss these in the monthly forecasts.
Those of you working towards a first or second marriage have a status-quo year but those working towards a third marriage have wonderful opportunities after September 25th. A third marriage is likely. This could also be a significant relationship that is like a marriage.
Again, the main obstruction seems to be financial. Those working towards a fourth marriage or involved in a fourth marriage are probably facing crisis in the relationship. Much deep change is going on. Love attitudes are changing. Impurities in your love attitudes or in the actual relationship are coming out for cleansing.
A parent or parent figure has a banner social year. Marriage or a significant relationship could definitely happen. The only barrier is that the need for personal freedom is so intense that they may not want to be ‘tied down’ and committed. Serious love would be unstable.
Children of marriageable age will start meeting significant others after September 25th. Marriage is likely here, too and their social life in general seems more stable. There is a need to balance career with the love life and it won’t be so easy to do that.
The love life of grandchildren of marriageable age is becoming more stable in the year ahead. Marriage is more probable now than it has been for a few years. There is a need for a spiritually orientated relationship.
Sagittarius 2018 money and career horoscope
Your 2nd House of Finance is not a House of Power this year so finances will tend to be status quo. Though you have more freedom in this area, there is no real interest or compulsion on your part to make major changes.
Career, your professional and social status is much more important than mere money. This is the kind of year where you will choose prestige and status over money. A high-status job with low pay is preferable to a low-status job with high pay.
You are personally very ambitious now. Many of you will reach your personal pinnacles of career success this year. There will be honours, recognition and promotion at your job. There will be better relations with elders, bosses and authority figures. Those of you who have issues with the government should try to resolve them now, as you can expect best-case scenarios.
Most Sagittarians have larger than life career aspirations but even these will get expanded in the year ahead. What will it be next? Branch offices globally? On the space shuttle? On other planets and in other galaxies? You feel there are no limits to the heights you can attain.
One of the career challenges you face is the instability at home. Perhaps some of the serial moves that we see are coming from your career, i.e. you get transferred to different cities (perhaps even countries) because of your job but the is a special need now to balance home and domestic duty with your career. Emotional volatility could also destabilise your career. Again, remember to keep tranquil.
Mercury, besides being your Love Planet is also your Career Planet. He moves quickly and will move through the Signs and Houses of your Horoscope in the year ahead. You will have many ways of and many different kinds of opportunities for advancing your career. These shorter trends will be covered in the monthly forecasts.
Saturn is your Financial Planet. This year he will be in the Sign of Cancer. Earnings and earning opportunities can come from family members or in a family-type business! Property (either commercial or residential) can be a source of profits. Professional investors should look at industries that cater for the home i.e. homebuilders, contractors or makers of equipment or appliances for the home. Restaurants and hotels should also be looked at.
Saturn rules your finances from your 8th House all year. This shows that your focus should be on helping others prosper like partners and shareholders, etc. and that your personal income will raise as a consequence of this. There is a need put the financial interests of others ahead of your own. Debts are easily paid and easily made. Access to outside capital is good. Bonds and the bond market are also of interest for professional investors.
Those of you who have insurance or tax claims pending should hear good news now. In many cases, the Financial Planet in the 8th House shows an inheritance but no one need die for this to happen. Someone can remember you in his or her will or you can be called upon to be an executor of an estate and earn that way.
Job seekers have a status-quo year. Only a Lunar Eclipse on October 28th can shake things up a bit. It can bring actual job changes or merely changes at the place of work. Those who employ others also have a status-quo year. The above-mentioned eclipse will probably cause a shake-up among the staff.
