Sagittarius - January 2018
Hello Sagittarius! Mercury lingers in your sign until the 11th of January, so it’s time to let the world know what’s going on in that head! Your mind will race with original thoughts at this time, and it might be hard to keep it quiet. You need to be around people and to share your ideas and opinions, or you will become despondent and irritable. Mercury and Uranus form an ingenious trine during this period too, which may send an unusual new hobby into your life. Unexpected romantic encounters could also arise with this connection, and you will find you attract people who are very individualistic, both in their appearance and approach to the world. Mars also hits your sign on the 27th, and as the month reaches an end you will feel your energy levels rising. If you’re feeling a little unmotivated under the curse of the new year blues, try to wait until these last days in January before you tackle important tasks.
With Lilith now making her mark on your finances, money will continue to be a precarious issue as we move into 2018. The trouble with Lilith is that when she wants something she can’t hold back, so spending on items you desire will be an intense, and at times, uncontrollable process. That festive over-indulgence could also continue into January, as you feel a strong urge to satisfy yourself with material things. Lilith will form conjunctions with Saturn and Mercury between the 12th and 19th, a good week to deal with accountants, banks and salary-related work issues in situations where you have so far not really made progress; you will seek the truth and will quickly get to the bottom of any confusion or deception. The new Moon on the 17th is also fabulous for making money from creative projects, although you may find yourself working behind the scenes on these plans whilst others take the spotlight.
Neptune forms some rather nice connections from your domestic zone in January. His first link is with the Sun and Venus between the 1st and 10th, and this is positive for spending family time together, healing rifts with relatives and retreating into your home for some rest and relaxation. You may feel a sudden urge to redecorate now, and if you are on the move, you could easily find your dream home. Neptune will also trine the full Moon on the 2nd, a positive transit for dealing with financial affairs connected to a property or inheritance matters. This is a very psychic time too, in which you will feel sensitive to changes in atmosphere. Mercury gets involved from the 16th to 25th, an intuitive period in which you should follow your hunches. If important matters need to be discussed with a young family member, this is also the time to do it.
The first lunar eclipse of 2018 will draw attention to your knowledge of the universe, as you seek new experiences to enhance your awareness of different cultures and places. You may decide to travel on a whim now or sign up for a higher education course. Training which began at the start of the solar eclipse last summer will come to a close, and you will need to consolidate the information you have learned so that you can move on. Inside every centaur is a wistful traveller who doesn’t always get a voice when everyday life gets in the way, so if you are fed up with your piece of sky, this is the time to make some changes so that life can be more fulfilling for you. Have a fabulous month!
