You just went through over two years of harsh lessons as stern Saturn was lumbering through your sign. Now it’s gone, not to return for another 29 years. The silver lining is that it should have helped you refine your goals and values for the years ahead. And this week, the aspects are perfect for initiating them.
The new moon in Capricorn on Tuesday is your annual opportunity to create the right kind of strategies you need to accomplish things, especially anything that has to do with greater stability: a higher income, for example, or a stronger relationship with a lover. This year’s new moon is unusually strong because so many planets are surrounding it, cheering it on: Venus, Pluto, Saturn and Mercury.
Sunday could be iffy as unpredictable Uranus acts up. A lover or child could behave erratically, throwing you off balance. Money might be an issue or the division of labor. Fortunately this little storm passes quickly.
Monday is super for quietly sniffing out a new job or promotion, or figuring out what the competition is up to. Schedule or go on interviews or conduct research. Home-based businesses happen to be favorable these days, so if you’re thinking about creating a cottage industry now’s a smart time to do your homework.
Then on Wednesday amorous Venus glides into Aquarius, to be followed by the Sun on Friday. Your social life should gain momentum, whether you’re single or attached. If you’re looking for new love the best way is to mingle face to face rather than hunting online.
The next four weeks are also some of the best in 2018 for self-promotion, so don’t be shy about pushing your brand, resume, book proposal, thesis, contract or art portfolio.
