January is officially here and the month begins with a sparkling full moon in Cancer on the 1st! There will be yet another full moon on the 31st, this one a powerful lunar eclipse. These lunations and several other planetary placements create certain themes for you this year, Gemini.
Last October generous Jupiter glided into your sixth house of work, which deals with the daily grind more so than our grand ambitions. Your colleagues are found in this sector as well as the kind of clients or projects you handle. The quality of your office environment is here too, along with perks and benefits. Teamwork is significant when this house is lit up like this, and as January begins, motivator Mars is here too.
2018 could be the year when you experience more cooperation and less drama at the office. Perhaps the boss buys some more advanced computers or fixes up the place so it’s more attractive. Generally speaking, this sector doesn’t usually bring about big raises, promotions or stellar new jobs. Often times if you find a new gig it’s a lateral move rather than a big step up the ladder.
However, there are other forces at work in 2018 that could actually propel you into a higher paying position rather than just a lateral switch. Your net worth could increase nicely too, and January provides you with the opportunity to start. Here’s why.
At the top of the month, the Sun, Pluto and Saturn are all in your eighth house of Big Money. This sector governs investments like mutual funds and real estate. It also deals with venture capital, business partnerships, patents, royalties and other monies that aren’t the kind of income that come in the form of salary. This is Saturn’s first trip through this sector in almost 30 years, so 2018 could be the year when you score some major dinero.
Chances are it won’t come from the day job (unless you’re self-employed). So this means that 2018 is the perfect time to start a solo side hustle, join forces with a business partner or create physical or intellectual products that can rake in cash. For example: you can patent an invention. Code an app. Write and sell a screenplay or book. License your artwork and earn royalties. Become a savvy real estate investor.
January is absolutely littered with fabulous days for this: the 2nd, 8th, 9th (awesome), 11th (Mercury enters this sector, joining the other planets), 13th, 16th, 19th and 24th. A new moon occurs in this house on the 16th, making this the best launch date. Do your homework before then and get ready to dive in during the last two weeks of January.
The full moon on the 1st happens to fall in your income sector, so it’s possible that you could land a new, higher-paying job or promotion within the first two weeks of the month. But if you don’t, know that the remainder of 2018 is well aspected for raking in money, but it will be from a side gig or investment rather than the day job.
January promises to be a major month for love too! The eighth house of big money also happens to be the sector that governs intimacy, sex and forming a deeper bond with a loved one. There are three orbs here as the year begins, to be followed by amorous Venus on the 17th and friendly Mercury on the 11th. That’s a lot of planetary firepower in one spot, I have to say.
The new moon on the 16th occurs in this sector, setting up a six-month window of time in which you can create a fresh start with your lover or find someone new. Singles, this is the year you could find your soulmate, someone who loves you at a level you’ve never experienced before. And if you’re unhappy in love and it looks like things can’t be repaired, consider your options!
What’s interesting about 2018 is that relationships should take on a more optimistic, independent energy. Clinginess (on your part or a lover’s) should become a thing of the past, along with jealousy and mistrust. You won’t be as dependent upon each other as you may have been before, but you will still have a good time. Travel is highly favored for you, as a couple and independently, especially after the 17th when Venus enters the adventure sector. The Sun follows two days later.
Singles, you could find a new honey by taking a class so sign up now. Couples might spark their romance a bit by taking a ballroom dancing class or cooking lessons.
The lunar eclipse in Leo on the 31st is a huge event for all signs. In your case, socializing and networking are prominently featured. A project that you began last August at the time of the Leo solar eclipse might come to fruition— a book deal, product launch, job hunt, lover hunt, you name it. Your ideas and words carry weight these days; use this special energy to make a name for yourself!« This Week’s Horoscope Today’s Horoscope »
