Learning the language of your new living environment
2018 is the first year, following a three-year-long difficult period, which treats you better and helps you make next steps when you thought every path, avenue and road was closed. Saturn leaves your sign and enters Capricorn. This means that your main issue is to redefine your merit because perhaps you are not remunerated as much as you are worth, you are not in the right working environment, or you feel you are passed over in favour of people you cannot admit. On the other hand, Jupiter in Scorpio aims at raising your personal value and makes you cultivate feelings and hidden talents so as to have a sparkling personality from within.
You are called upon to join new living environments and you will realise that you must speak a new language. You are called upon to express yourself in a way you are not used to; thus your audience will also change. Your need to travel grows bigger because you want to be among people who have a new worldview which you gradually approximate. If during summertime you get ready to move out, make sure you leave no unfinished business behind. You must take care of this until November because Jupiter enters your sign and closed doors are nothing compared to your bold plans.
Your ruler, Jupiter, in Scorpio until November, 8 indicates that you go through an intensely transformative year out of which you are called upon to come undamaged and based mostly on your disposition to be exposed emotionally or to escape an environment which does not fit you any longer. On the professional level, you will be called upon to take on roles which pester you or anger you because perhaps you realise you are not appreciated as much as you should, or you must work in the dark without being acknowledged for what you offer. On the other side, you have the opportunity to act behind-the-scenes and observe the way successful people function with the purpose of recording some elements which you must apply to your life to improve it. On the personal level, perhaps you doubt your relationship or you choose to withdraw into yourself so as to be in good terms with you as first and then with your better half. Perhaps you choose to support somebody who needs your company because you might give answers to their stressful questions thanks to your ability to find light even in the dark.
The important lesson with Jupiter in Scorpio is related to the demand to reveal your inner world and not to be afraid to admit your phobias. Perhaps you are too scared of loneliness or professional failure, perhaps you cannot deal with people who can be emotional with you, or perhaps you are disturbed with situations in which you feel like losing your personal freedom. What matters is to find the roots of your fears, and to dig deep to discover why you hide sides of your personality and you feel incomplete in the end. Such a process goes through soul searching and dialogue with people who can advise you and not give you a superficial answer. At the end of the year, you will have the opportunity to reintroduce yourself to life. Jupiter enters your sign on November, 8 and opens up doors to bright places so long as you have learnt that you can find happiness and luck in the dark too.
Saturn in Capricorn, your 2nd Solar house, throughout 2018 is an indication that you will be financially challenged shall you insist on relying on luck and opportunities which others create for you. The truth is that you must labour to prove your merit and that you might have to work harder than usual so as to make as much money as you need. Perhaps you are in a working environment which reduces salaries or woking hours and as a result, you are called upon to ask yourself whether you have not dealt sufficiently with your dynamic and you are in jobs which only help you to survive. Perhaps this means that you have the opportunity to explore your inclinations and talents, and start training yourself on ways to transform them into career paths and not only methods to make a living.
On the other hand, Saturn in Capricorn might make you deal with the value of material in life and you might want to self-reflect regarding the way you manage money and wealth in general. Perhaps you wish to get rid of real estate and pieces of land, to dispose of some objects, to live in a smaller house, or to reduce your personal expenses so as to make room to cultivate your emotional world. Perhaps you decide to turn inwards through soul-searching due to a difficult development on the professional level. In any case, Saturn in Capricorn aims at teaching you the real value of things and making you reconsider the meaning of wealth which you have shaped in your head and have implemented in your life.
The first eclipse is the Lunar eclipse at 11 degrees Leo on January 31 which seems to mobilise issues of personal perception on the new facts of your life as they were shaped over the last three years. Perhaps you must put yourself on the back burner in view of the needs of close-to-you people and you start realising that you make room for people who really need it. Perhaps you decide to change the field of your studies with the purpose of going someplace which fits your temperament more. Perhaps there are developments on legal affairs which make you claim money and objects from relatives. The Solar eclipse at 27 degrees Aquarius on February 15 seems to unblock your thoughts and can give you the right push to go after your choices. You want to speed up and shock close-to-you people because you know by now that you can speak the language of truth and avoid traps, which people who are afraid of losing you, set. You plan or you realise a move which might result into important developments on the personal level. You will see the result in a couple of months when you have crystallised the indications you think are before your eyes.
The Solar eclipse at 20 degrees Cancer on July 13 seems to bring up emotionally related topics thanks to your contact or lack of contact with somebody who easily reminds you of the past and your roots, and who makes you feel you can share without fearing you will lose. You had better protect relationships which are based on mutual trust and hug even tighter people with whom you share the same experiences and can offer safety to one another. Perhaps inheritance and financial issues come up which will mirror your relationships with relatives. You wish to avoid this but it seems impossible at the current juncture. If something comes to an end at this eclipse, make sure you have your eyes wide open at the Lunar eclipse at 4 degrees Aquarius on July 27. You can see the broad horizon time and again. You have a trip on mind which you need not cancel; you must carefully select your company though. Furthermore, a cycle of relationships with relatives comes to an end but it should not only be a weight for you; it should also be hopeful. At the last Solar eclipse of the year at 18 degrees Leo on August 11, you have the opportunity to set new targets and take decisions about studies or a new beginning somewhere far from familiar grounds. Start packing whatever you take with because it seems you set sail after having decided what it is you leave behind and you refuse to give it the value it asks. The choice of a solitary course at this eclipse means that you have faith in yourself and future because you know that every possible compromise at the current juncture will feel limiting following a period of imprisonment and punishment in an environment which sucked your energy.
The North Node will be in Leo and the South Node will be in Aquarius respectively until November 6. It seems it offers you the opportunity to escape a reality which perhaps pesters you, toughens you, or is more and more demanding. Your contact with people from abroad might help you find answers to hard questions which you cannot process if you rely on familiar views and your contact with familiar faces. You have the opportunity to go on some trips and encounter new choices on the personal or professional level. It is very likely that you tone up your life through experiences which are not necessarily long-lasting. You need to step away from relatives and you must express it in any way possible which proves you are not selfish and self-centred but you know very well the reason why you would like to do so.
On the other hand, it is probably time you sat your final exams following a three-year-long period of lessons and harsh education. You will be judged as to whether you can shape a specific thinking frame which unites your personality with the needs of life you cannot escape. Perhaps you decide to leave an educational effort unfinished on a subject which does not suit your character, or because you feel you are devoted to something which will not contribute to the overall attempt to form your own culture. Perhaps you are stubborn and you focus on a field in which you wish to shine; as a result, you are about to sit the finals.
