Hi, everyone! Happy cosmic New Year to all! May this year bring blessings, love, and Light to every person all around the world! Let's examine the forecast for the entire year to come, so we are prepared to move forward.
The chart of Rosh Hashanah, which is the seed level of the year to come, sees the end of many cycles and the beginning of new ones.
The end of Uranus in Aries occurs, and in May of 2018, it will enter Taurus. Uranus in Aries brought great advances in science, medicine, cancer research, robotics, A.I., and nano technology. That progress was, however, overshadowed by violence (Aries), terrorism, instability in many regions, population displacement, life starting anew in different places, and it influenced quite a few natural disasters.
In Taurus, Uranus will see a change in the financial systems, and in the way we understand money. It will also create change in landscapes, agriculture, even in the way we view living at home. Perhaps, the concept of gardens and nature within homes, buildings and other unconventional locations will expand. Well used, this idea can bring us closer to an end to poverty, with new ways to feed populations or grow things where we usually cannot. Taurus also rules food and wealth.
But beware: the last placement of Uranus in Taurus was 1934 to 1942. Thank God humankind has evolved since then! It is also the end of the infamous square, Pluto–Uranus (2013 to 2018), which has created much havoc and instability in politics, as well as a rebirth of extremism in the past few years, as prior in history.
Saturn ends its two and a half year cycle in Sagittarius and enters Capricorn, its ruling sign, in December 2017. As a result, Pluto and Saturn will be conjunct, closer and closer to each other. The key words at this time are evolution and transformation. Otherwise, this pair will create many issues, as well!
Finally, Jupiter enters intense Scorpio on October 11, 2017, and brings a very "martial," life-and-death energy as opposed to the peaceful Libra wave of last year. Let's brace for impact! This set of planetary rearrangements will transfigure the world as we know it!
How can we make a better use of Jupiter and Saturn, the closest planets to us, as we grow and develop this year? First Jupiter, our expander and the blessing of our solar system, Jupiter enlightens the mysteries of life and death when in Scorpio, which helps us heal and bring to the light buried issues that are blocking us. It's a very powerful force for change and will give us a mighty push to ascend beyond our present state of consciousness. Globally, it will put everything to do with war under the spotlight so we can begin to heal. Studies on regeneration beyond death will be brought forward in science. Hope will prevail, with many breakthroughs in nuclear peace talks and weapon reduction.
As for our tikkun (“correction”) with Saturn – this planet is often considered difficult and harsh, the opposite of Jupiter. But Saturn is actually essential for our personal growth and maturity. Saturn is blunt, hard, concrete, and can lead to difficult but necessary situations. In Greek, Saturn is time, Kronos, who cuts off the dead branches, and requires some sacrifices. After this transit, we will be bigger, stronger, and more aware of our qualities. We will find our own voice, our own leadership, and feel more anchored in our lives.
Our goals this year should be:
We have the power to change everything. Until this moment, we've been trainees. Now is the time to positively act!
Shana tova (good year), everyone! To be continued...
Love & Light,
