Happy New Year! This year kick-starts with a settling feeling as the Moon transits from restless and talkative Gemini to home and peace-seeking Cancer, encouraging you to take stock and enjoy the creature comforts of home life and a sense of belonging.
The fab Supermoon - the closest and therefore largest Full Moon this year – will be in Cancer on January 2nd . This will further place the spotlight your home life, property and family: and provide focus on the areas of your life that really do provide a sanctuary - and on the importance of prioritising these areas.
And, with the Sun and four planets in the sign of Capricorn mid-January, this will be the month to lay realistic and strong foundations for the year ahead.
Financially, if your accounts have been down in the doldrums, there is good news! With Saturn in Capricorn for the entire year, you will get the chance to put new structures in place financially, such as a new budget that works for you.
Interestingly, according to the weekend’s Sunday Telegraph, a recent New Galaxy study found that 40 per cent of Australians want to focus on smarter and more stable ways to manage finances in 2018. Saturn in Capricorn throughout 2018 will certainly help this endeavour. But this comes with the proviso that you look for new ways to conquer counterproductive financial habits.
And this applies across the board: 2018 is the year to consider therapeutic, new and exciting ways to get ahead whether you focus on finances, love life, home, family or wellbeing. If you rest on your laurels, you will end up with exactly what you have now!
This idea will become all the more relevant as you progress through January: the Supermoon, Blue Moon and total lunar eclipse on January 31st will focus your mind on your self: on what you manifest in life, on what actions you take, and on how you plan to move forward in life in proactive, compassionate and life-affirming ways.
Get set for a resplendent year: it’s in your hands, perhaps more so than ever. Wishing everyone everywhere a wonderful year. x
