The cycles of Jupiter during the year 2018 bring an influence of expansive energy to your goals and strengthen your connection to your inner self. During the first half of the year, Jupiter transits through the Eleventh House of your solar chart, and it is this period that draws your attention to personal and professional aims. This cycle stimulates optimism, and you may feel more satisfied with the rewards of your career. Most importantly, your ability to clarify and fulfill your goals is empowered.
Your generosity toward your friends and within your community works like a magical elixir, since the more you do for others, the more support you attract. From July through December, Jupiter travels through your solar Twelth House, lifting your spirits and opening your awareness of the more subtle spiritual realms. Your dreams and imagination are fueled, and you may feel a sense of spiritual protection that instills a deep confidence in the natural order of things.
It’s necessary to distinguish between those things that are currently possible and those things that are the experience of creative reverie, since your enriching fantasies may be mesmerizing!
Saturn’s energy emphasizes the necessity of setting reasonable goals as a means of fulfilling your destiny. You’re seeing a direct correlation between the disciplined and responsible actions that act as building blocks and your career advancement, and will find that the more clearly you define what you want, the more likely you are to accomplish it!
The planets Uranus and Neptune continue their longer cyclical influence over your intimate relationships and act as awakeners to the potentials of healing in every area of your life. You may be breaking down barriers and eliminating fears as you experiment with the possibility of accomplishing true intimacy. Pluto’s influence in your sector of work and service is reflecting the upheaval and transformational change in your job. Your health may also be a matter of concern, especially the relationship between health and work. It’s time to eliminate situations that are destructive to your physical well-being.
There are four solar eclipses and two lunar eclipses during the year 2018. It is rare that so many solar eclipses are happening in one year, and this can be indicative of a year of significant alterations in the collective experiences that affect us as a whole that result from crisis events. These events may not necessarily be devastating, but are, nonetheless, periods of intensity. Since the Moon’s nodes are transiting through your sign this year, you may feel the impact of the eclipses more strongly than everyone else. By paying attention to your underlying motivations—the things that are driving you at an almost unconscious level—you can gain better control over the fulfillment of your life purpose.
