The new year begins with a full Moon in Ardra nakshatra, the constellation of storm god, Rudra. 2018 starts with a forceful energy, inviting in power, intensity and emotional body waves. There is promise of big, grande and bold changes on multiple levels.

As 2018 begins, Jupiter is transiting Libra still, Saturn continues his arduous transit through Sagittarius and Mula nakshatra, while Rahu transits Cancer and Ketu transits Capricorn.

We won't see shifts in these major transits until October 2018, when Jupiter shifts to Scorpio. Mid December, the slowest moving planet, Saturn, will finally shift out of the constellation of Adharma, Mula, and into PurvaAshada, the domain of Apas- the water goddess. March of 2019, Rahu will enter Gemini and Ketu will change to Sagittarius, joining Saturn there. The majority of 2018 doesn't offer any changes in the major transits of Saturn, Jupiter, Rahu or Ketu, however, the shorter transits of Moon, Mars, Venus, Mercury, and Sun will impact us more closely.
These Horoscopes will give you general themes for the year to come based on your rising sign. Horoscopes are based on your sidereal, or Jyotish rising sign, not your Western or Tropical sign. There is likely no correlation. You may also use with your sidereal Moon or Sun sign for extra insight.
Aries: Expand relationships and learn from others. Relationships are a powerful teacher this year. Seek balance and integration with others. Strengthen your sense of self and deepen your self trust. Clarify boundaries and ask for support. Focus on home, land and property. Give your mother more attention and focus on your emotional body more closely. Attend to your spiritual path and clarify your dharmic purpose. There may be big shifts and restructuring with your career and offering this year. Career changes are likely. Find new ground and transform the way you share yourself. Strengthen your spiritual connection and let this inform your offerings. Let your heart lead the way.
Taurus: Dig deeply into your depths and attend to undigested, unprocessed grief within the unconscious realms. Use this wisdom to inform how you connect and share with others. Let it guide your offerings and dharmic path. Relationships take courage this year and will prove challenging and provocative. Trust yourself and your inner wisdom. Watch out for those who are not living in their integrity or doing their healing work. Strengthen your gifts as a healer and get extra healing support right now. You have the possibility of deepening your dharmic path and clarifying your purpose- if you are willing to radically reconstruct and deconstruct who you are and how you are in the world. Deepen your courage and creativity as a resource for self discovery. What are you learning about who and what nourishes you?
Gemini: Focus on income, nourishment and pleasures, but avoid overindulgence and intoxicants. Clean up your diet and what you put in your body. Let this be a time of healing, rather than self sabotage. Attend diligently to your unconscious and subconscious terrain. Old trauma is rising to the surface. Are you consciously working with it or avoiding and suppressing? Relationships can bring grief or more stability and strength. Invite in grounding and deepen your roots. Digest and release past relationship grief and let it be a resource for deep inner growth. Your heart requests this grief work so don't by-pass it. Strengthen your sense of empowerment, intuition and purpose. Teach and guide children, while letting them be your teacher as well. Keep a child-like sense of wonder and invite in playfulness as you navigate you deep, inner waters.
Cancer: This is a powerful year of self growth, while ripping away the shadow and illusions you've been hiding under. Deepen your self awareness and be willing to look at your weaknesses. Strong cravings and desires intensify. Don't get lost in the superficiality of human life. Relationship changes and shifts are inevitable. Let your relationship with Self ground you in self love and truth. Are you getting lost in chaos and instability? This is a powerful time to release and let go of relationships and behaviors that are keeping you stuck and unstable. Heal through grief and honor your emotional body wisdom with intention and diligence. It's time to lean into your fragility and darkness. Seek integration with inner and outer realms.
Leo: Your intuition and relationships require that you honor your grief more closely. Be authentic with your hurt and pain. Attend to digestion diligently as it is extra sensitive and vulnerable right now. You are digesting some very old grief. Clearing this will radically upgrade the way you align with your power. Heal and be healed. Ask the ancestors and Spirit for guidance and support. Attend to losses, letting go and release with intention. You are creating more space for self trust and strength. Get courageous and expand your creative potential. This will vastly improve your dharmic clarity as well. Focus on relationship growth. Something must be released in order for you to gain. What are you learning about your needs for stability and support?
Virgo: Your wealth and nourishment is strengthening this year. Speak your truth and align with your inner integrity. Share, connect and offer your wisdom to others. Your heart requires honesty and grief work. Old, undigested grief is being pulled up by the root. Your willingness to attend to your pain will support new growth. Strengthen your emotional body relationship and seek solid ground. Relationships prove to be both a focus and a challenge. Your willingness to dive into your depths will support your growth and learning in this process. Seek relationships who are equally willing to do the same. Attend to the trauma living in your solar plexus and reconnect with your sense of power and intuition. You need this clarity and empowerment in order to step into your dharma more fully.
Libra: Integration, stability and grounding are key this year. Growth comes from spinal alignment and flexibility. Deepen your relationship within and let these inner roots help you expand and grow into new relationships with others. Nurture and nourish your self and ask for more in life. Creativity and courage require your diligence and consistent presence. You may feel less than inspired to act on your dharmic work, but it is more important than ever to align with right action. There is undigested grief keeping you from your creative courage, so lean closer to your emotional body and attend to old loss, trauma and hurt with diligence and fearlessness. Your heart is being cracked open right now. Look closely at its contents. Be seen, get visible, share with the world and offer your gifts in bigger ways.
Scorpio: Expand and grow into your spiritual body. Ask the ancestors to help you align with deeper resources and support. Build a deeper relationship with the non ordinary and make it a priority in your life. Be mindful of what you eat and when you eat. You are digesting a lot of grief right now. Attend to it consciously and help it digest and release so it does not get stagnant. This requires emotional body diligence as well as strengthening your cycles and rhythms. Creativity and courage require your focus. Restructuring and disconnection are possible with your artistry and hands. Let this guide your relationship to your dharma as well. Your path and purpose are your soul focus right now. Give it all you've got. This cycle won't come again for 18 years. What is your biggest passion right now? Follow your joy and let it guide your offerings.
Sagittarius: Find new ground and deepen your inner and outer stability and support systems. Strengthen your relationships, while also understanding that this requires diligent grief work. Undigested and unprocessed grief is rising to the surface right now. It's impacting your body and your flexibility. Stay supple and keep your body moving. The only way to heal grief is to walk with it and honor it as a resource. It can be a gift if you use it as such. Deepen your self expression and use your voice consciously. Sing, chant, speak and communicate in order to heal and be nourished. Lean closer to your vulnerability and fears. What is keeping you playing small and disempowered? Learn and grow from relationships. Gain from your connections and creativity. Release what is no longer nourishing you or bringing you vitality.
Capricorn: You and your world are being radically restructured right now. Your whole sense of self is shifting and changing. Addressing trauma and disconnection within your body are vital. You may even feel disembodied. Stay close to the physical body and sensations. Seek integration between head, pelvis and spine. Relationships are fragile in this cycle and prove to be challenging at times. You may feel unclear and uncertain, even mistrustful of others. You are learning how to trust yourself more fully in this cycle. Deepen your inner roots. Avoid unhealthy relationships and environments, as well as intoxicants and overindulgence. Find your ground. Expand and nourish yourself and others through offering wisdom and resources. Your healing comes through service. Attend to loss, release, the ancestors and grief. Saturn is asking you to be diligent with the process of letting go. What needs to let go of in order to make space for the new?
Aquarius: Healing should be getting your soul focus right now. Attend to your healing process and strengthen your skills as a healer. Avoid conflicts and inner drama. Attend to your dark matter and shadow work. Your darkness can become a potent offering- if you are willing to do what it takes to turn shadow into light. Gains come through radical release and attending to grief and restructuring. You must be willing to make changes to yourself and your relationships in order to gather new support and resources. Look closely at your fear and losses. Attending to the unconscious realms will serve you well. Your dharmic path is ready to expand and grow. Connect with and meet the right people to help you grow. Your sense of self is expanding. Nurture what you want for your life and your path. Don't be afraid to ask for more.
Pisces: Big changes are taking place in your career and offering this year. A restructuring is arriving. Find the threads of joy and pleasure. These are worth moving towards and strengthening. Relationships bring grief and uncertainty, while requiring new structure and inner stability. Who feels safe and stable to you? Who does not? Build upon the relationships and connections that provide support. Attend to losses, grief and pain. It's time to do some healing work with your relationship challenges. Dig up the unconscious patterns and beliefs you've been carrying around. What is keeping your heart closed and malnourished? Move towards deeper intuition and gut intelligence. Strengthen your self trust and work on trust issues with others. You will be asked to release and let go, in order to gain and receive more of what you need and want. What personal mythology needs to be released once and for all?
