2018 Yearly Forecast

2018

Yearly Horoscope for Every Zodiac Sign

The most difficult thing to give is that which we give up. Elizabeth Bibesco

Themes of positive self-expression and collaborative thinking will make 2018 a year to reap the rewards of being proactive and stepping out as your true self. This year will also challenge you to broaden your perspective about your role in your community, social circle, a political cause, or other collective vision that’s much bigger than you (the ‘me too’ movement is a good example). You will likely have to loosen the reigns in an area of your life that makes you feel confident; whether its work, parenthood, sexuality, or creativity, you’ll do best if you take courage to take a different route and go outside your comfort zone. If you’re a natural team player, you’ll feel stimulated. If you’re more of a one on one person however, you’ll need an extra push to get you in the mix, where others will notice you and help you make a lasting impact.

Material stability will give you food for thought as your personality completes a unique makeover that has brought you much wisdom. Think about the part of your life that seemingly has caused you the most havoc in the past several years. Your love life, finances, career, or family- for example…that presented you with so many opportunities to make a fresh start, but no matter how hard you may have tried, you just couldn’t seem to get it right. Well- this year will offer you that one last chance to finally ‘get’ it. As a result, you’ll make a great achievement, as you’ll experience a new level of mastery that will highlight your unique brilliance in a particular area of your life.

As you reach the end of this process, you’ll notice circumstances will start changing, and the pattern you once thought was inescapable will open up. Be mindful and carefully watch what happens. Whether this involves a psychological or emotional experience or you see events clearly played out, you will come to a certain “knowing”, and it will feel so refreshing! When this happens, you’ll have an opportunity to get connected with a new kind of reality, which will encourage you to make an important life change. A value you once had will likely fade away as you become a new (and better) person. Your security, self- esteem, possessions, and overall comfort level will come to the forefront of your life experience, and no matter what your financial status- you’ll likely want to have an impressive net worth.

What does this look like for you? If you could have an impressive net worth, how would your life have to change? How would you need to change? This year, in 2018 you’ll have an opportunity to make a clean start toward that total net worth sum. Of course I encourage you to think beyond dollars, although if you truly desire wealth, go for it! Beyond an abundance of valuable possessions and money however, what does wealth mean to you? Whether its power, freedom, luxury, comfort, a mix of all, or something else that has great meaning for you, pay attention to what you value this year…what makes you feel like a million dollars, and you’ll be on your way to making 2018 a year where you come out as winner.

Major Planetary Events

There are four eclipses in 2018. Three will ignite the Leo Aquarius axis (the last will arrive in Cancer). If you are a Leo or Aquarius, get ready for lots of changes! If you are a Cancer, a new frontier is waiting for you, so have your sights set on a new future. Uranus, the planet of freedom, innovation, fame, and unexpected change will leave Aries and will make its grand entrance in Taurus on Tuesday, May 15. This will mark a new chapter that will last until July 8, 2025.

Life changing events for the next 7 years will involve Taurus themes: material stability, physical comfort and pleasure, personal values, and ownership. If you are a Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, or Aquarius (which comprise all the zodiac’s fixed energy signs)  this new chapter will greatly impact your life’s direction. All signs, however, will definitely feel a part of their life changing in ways that will eventually create a solid foundation for long term stability.

ARIES (March 21- April 19)

It’s time to wrap your personal reinvention and start collecting. New ways of making money will take you in the stratosphere of your industry. You’ll have the ability to get the resources you need to expand. A business loan, mortgage, venture capital, merge, or other financial partnership will expand your options and empower you. If you’re serious about financial growth, do all you can to get the process going, and consult an expert if you need guidance. He or she will likely be a great help to you. In matters of the heart, show your true self and leave nothing to hide, as this will truly set you free, and strangely enough, will help you find a bigger place in the world.

 

TAURUS (April 20 -May 20)

In the beginning of the year your life will linger behind the curtains, but come Spring, the red carpet will roll out, and ready or not, and a new life path will usher you in the spot-light. If you have stage fright, you’ll likely resist and want to run behind the curtains to take a nice deep breath. If you can handle it, everything will look new, and magical, and wonder if what you’re experiencing is really real. Either way, your life’s foundation will being to shift, or you’ll have to stay very aware so you don’t fall between the cracks. What is your greatest weakness Taurus? Embrace it, as this year it will likely become your greatest strength.

 

GEMINI (May 21-June 21)

You’ll feel bounced around like a tennis ball as you juggle your life’s daily demands. Communication, organization, and time management will become the key to your sanity throughout 2018. Try not get too wrapped up in logistics- as this will only slow you down. Think of the big picture first, and then you’ll know where to zoom in. If you have a psychological or emotional pattern that’s preventing you from being your best self, circumstances will likely usher you to stop, look, and listen. Make that change Gemini, only you’ll know what it is, and in that knowing you’ll have incredible power to make a personal breakthrough.

 

CANCER (June 22-July 22)

Know what your worth is, Cancer, as 2018 will give you a chance to become a higher earner. Whether you work for an organization or for yourself, you’ll break new ground by having clarity about what’s most important to you, and knowing what’s required to get there. It’s likely you already have the skills and talent to reach an ambitious goal. The real question is, do you have the resources? Focus on developing relationships with key people who have an in to the place where you seek entrance, and you’ll make an impressive debut. Once you get out of your shell, you’ll likely not want to go back!

 

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)

Who do you enjoy being with the most Leo? Whether this is your spouse, sweetheart, best friend, child, or other important person, know that he or she has a special gift for you this year. When you’re with this person, part of you comes alive. You feel fresher, more care free, and more like your true self. If you nurture the magical effect he or she has on you, you’ll bring this magic, (which is really a special part of your own character) to other areas of your life outside your relationship, and exciting new possibilities will begin to surface. No matter your age, think- ‘what would I like to be when I grow up’? As this will guide you to what will become your priority for 2018: befriending your destiny.

 

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

Search from within the recesses of your mind and soul, and every day you’ll experience a miracle. Most will likely be small, but miracles all the same. The more you notice the magic, the bigger the miracles will become, and by the end of 2018, you’ll feel pure and revitalized, yet strong as steel. This year you’ll likely have to confront what you would rather not see, but as soon as you decide to shine the light on the darkness, you’ll experience the power of spiritual resilience. Have courage as you self-reflect, and you’ll breathe new life into the next chapter of your life’s mission. There are many others who are waiting to benefit from all you have to give, but you must be fully self-aware to give justice to your gift.

 

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

Finding new ways to express yourself creatively will lead you to the sunnier side of the street. The key is to stay motivated, Libra. You thrive on friendship and social interaction, yet, this year, you’ll benefit from getting more into you. Make an effort to discover new things about yourself, and the connectedness you crave will naturally happen (especially if you’re single and looking). If you drift away from a close friend or colleague, know that it’s likely for good reason. Pride yourself in the ability to detach and remain objective, and strangely enough before you know it, your heart will open… and love will find you.

 

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)

This year will make you feel like you can always find a way to get a yes, (even in the most convoluted circumstances). As a result, your success will shift your productivity in fifth gear. Many times you’ll feel like you’re coasting when in fact you’ll break barriers- most likely in your career. What you’ll need to focus on is inner stability, especially in your personal life. How do you create that balance between your inner world and outer world? This balance doesn’t’ have to be an even 50/50, but it will have to feel right for you. Honor your emotional needs, and you’ll find a flow that will help you reach a higher level of mastery in your of relationships, and profession.

 

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

Life will definitely feel easier than last year, but ironically you’ll have less flexibility. Travel (a vital part of Sagittarius’s raison d’etre) will offer you a different perspective that’s long overdue. Once you’re exposed to a different way of life, religion, or philosophy, you’ll experience a new found freedom. This will give you the space you need to develop your own ideas about politics, religion, and everything in between. Let the winds of change be your guide and gradually, you’ll become an original thinker with a unique mission. Become one with what you most aspire to and believe in your heart, and gradually, you’ll adapt to a new lifestyle that lies on the edge of rock star euphoria.

 

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

The more you let go and allow yourself to be vulnerable, the stronger you’ll feel, especially in your closest relationship. A financial risk will likely require you to reassess your bottom line. As a result, you’ll gain a deeper understanding of your values, which are likely changing. Be open to discovering new things about yourself, as this will likely lead to a new and improved lifestyle that’s a true reflection of new you. Simplicity will become your magic word as strive to get down to essentials and get rid of anything you don’t need. This will likely include an emotional attachment with someone close to you. Once you create a little psychological space for yourself you’ll gain invaluable wisdom.

 

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)

Get ready to be carried in a positive a new direction by the winds of fate Aquarius. Your sweetheart, spouse, or business partner will see the undeveloped potential in you, so you can trust he or she will have your best interest in in mind. At times you’ll likely feel stretched to your limits, only to discover how resilient you are. With this discovery will also come a responsibility, and that will involve an honest self-examination of how well you’re managing your life, especially your long term goals. Once you learn to dance with changing circumstances you’ll discover a rhythm all your own, and you’ll finally begin to feel like you’re in the flow- yet also ready to embrace change.

 

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)

Your main challenge this year will involve mastering your mind body connection. As the zodiac’s last sign, Pisces encompasses knowledge from all preceding signs. This can help you intuitively create balance where you need it most. You’ll have an excellent opportunity to explore all parts of your personality, which will allow you to transform your greatest weakness into your greatest strength. Regular exercise and sleeping patterns will keep you on top of your game. Yet, there will likely be times where you’ll just want to check out and recharge. Consider slight changes in your daily routine every several months, as this will keep you mentally agile and physically grounded.

The Sun is in Aquarius!

The Sun is now in Aquarius!

Aquarius

Mamangam, The School of Dance

The universe is made up of stories, not atoms.  Muriel Rukeyser

The Sun’s journey through the constellation of Aquarius will last until Sunday, February 18. As the zodiac’s third air sign, Aquarius reflects the mature intellectual who thrives off objectivity. Aquarius is also infamous for being the best friend who forever remains loyal. While the Sun shines in Aquarius, you’ll have an opportunity to show up for a friend, become more active in your community, and create emotional distance from an ongoing circumstance that requires you to stretch your personality. This will help you gain wisdom as you strive to do bigger and better things, as Aquarius is also the sign of higher vision and new possibilities.

George Balanchine’s Birthday, 1-22-1904

George Balanchine, Founder of

New York City Ballet

George Balanchine & New York City Ballet Dancers

Aquarius Sun, Pisces Moon, Cancer Ascendant

God creates, I do not create. I assemble and I steal everywhere to do it – from what I see, from what the dancers can do, from what others do. George Balanchine

 

It’s not surprising that Mr. Balanchine, the father of neo classical ballet, is an Aquarius. His imagination and vision were well ahead of his time. He had a talent for bringing out the individuality of his dancers and bringing them to the edge of their capability. Yet, he also cherished the oneness of his dancers, and took pride in his collective vision of perfection.

As the 11th sign of the zodiac Aquarius sees the big picture, and needs to make a special contribution to the future- whether this involves a community, social movement, or humanitarian cause, Aquarius is born with a mission. Mr. Balanchine’s devotion to his dancers, which eventually (with the assistance Lincoln Kirstein) became New York City Ballet, is now historical, yet still lives in the future as through his creation of the Balanchine technique.

Musicality was Mr. Balanchine’s greatest gift, as he had great respect for music in its own right. With the Moon in Pisces, the most musical sign of the zodiac, he had a natural sense of rhythm, and flow. A trained classical pianist, he likely could just as easily been a composer. With his rising sign in Cancer, the sign of family and nurturing, Mr. Balanchine was comfortable taking on a father role-feeling personally responsible for the welfare of his dancers, and taking care of them. He was known for his generosity and loyalty, for once a dancer was chosen to ride under his wing, the sky would emerge and reveal the brightest stars.

Capricorn Dancer’s Moira Shearer’s Birthday~ January 17, 1926

The Red Shoes, 1948

Moira Shearer, Michael Powell’s The Red Shoes

Moira Shearer

Capricorn Sun, Pisces Moon, Leo Ascendant

 

Boris Lermontov: Why do you want to dance? Victoria Page: Why do you want to live?  Boris Lermontov : Well I don’t know exactly why, er, but I must.

Victoria Page: That’s my answer too.  
                                              
                                                         Dialogue from The Red Shoes 

 

 

Moira Shearer is most famous for her starring role in the classic dance film, The Red Shoes, directed by  Hollywood icon Michael Powell. Born on January 17, 1926, Ms. Shearer is a Capricorn. As the zodiac’s 10th sign, Capricorn is the zenith of the zodiac, and thrives on ambition. Saturn, the planet of realism, is Capricorn’s ruler. Thus, even though Capricorn has high hopes, she (or he) is not afraid to work hard-because it builds character, Capricorn’s most notable virtue.

With her moon in Pisces, the zodiac’s most imaginative sign, Ms. Shearer was also a dreamer who was known for her sensitivity. Her Leo ascendant made her a natural performer who adored the spotlight. The sign on the ascendant, (or rising sign), reflects ones public image, physical appearance,  and demeanor. Her infamous red hair and dramatic eyes gave her a lioness quality that is quintessentially Leo.

2018 Begins with the Full Moon in Cancer~

The Full Moon in Cancer Kicks off 2018!

2018 Full Moon in Cancer

Our Bodies are our Choreography

Greek Quote

The full moon in Cancer will perfectly harmonize with Neptune, the planet of idealism, healing, and spirituality. As the sign of emotional security, sensitivity, and instinct, Cancer takes us to our own private world, where we feel most deeply. Thus, this full moon will create a wonderful opportunity for emotional completion-to wrap up a situation, decision, or concern from the past, so we can move forward, cleansed, and pure.

What’s so beautiful about this aspect is that both planets are dignity (their natural signs, where the planet’s raw energy is most easily expressed). The moon is at home in the sign of Cancer, while Neptune sparkles in Pisces, the zodiac’s most imaginative sign. This planetary alignment is like the perfect waltz, lush, graceful, and mesmerizing.

If your birthday is between June 29 and July 2, or your moon or rising sign is between 8 and 13 degrees of Cancer, the moon’s influence will have a great impact on you. Indeed a part of your life will flow, and a voice from within will ring with truth. Once you act on it, you’ll set the tone for a magical 2018~
