Numerology & the Energy of 2018

2018 – UNIVERSAL ‘11’ Year

In numerology, the energy of the Universal Year (the calendar year) weaves a universal theme of potential through our lives.  How you then work with the energy of the Universal Year will be dependent on your own Personal Year – hence keep reading down the page to understand more about YOU in 2018.

The last time we experienced a Universal 11 Year was in 2009, and then before that the last Universal 11 year was in 1910… thus well over 99% of the worlds population have only ever experienced one or two Universal Year 11 vibrations in their lifetime… so this is a biggy for our entire planet !

In numerology the number 11 is a Master Number – ‘Master’ meaning it is of intense/high vibrational frequency and works within the aetherial, magical and transcendental realms of creation. Master numbers possess great potential for learning and growth, and can bring major transformations in your life…  Read More >

New Moons & Full Moons 2018

The Moon & the Sun emanate frequencies and these energy waves influence the tides, and all life forms on Earth, including human behaviour, our emotional/mental responses and our greater spiritual potential.

The SUN represents our ‘outer-world’, our identify, our personality, our ego.  It represents how we ‘shine our light’ out into the world, the present moment, our yang or masculine archetype expression.  The Sun offers us strength, courage and illuminated insight of the Soul.

The MOON represents our ‘inner world’, our hidden emotions, desires, our shadow-self, fears/worries and our dreams.  It represents our feelings, our unconscious beliefs, the past and our yin or feminine goddess archetype.  The Moon offers us the ability to feel, learn from the past and creatively unlock and express our essence.

The NEW MOON represents the beginning of our 29 day lunar month. During a New Moon, the moon is roughly sitting between the Earth & the Sun, hence the Sun is shining on the ‘dark side of the moon’, the side of the moon we never see.  As a result, we cannot see the moon as the side that faces the Earth is not illuminated. 

During a NEW MOON, the side of the moon that remains invisible to us here on Earth is being illuminated by the Sun.  Thus our own ‘invisible’ side, our inner feelings, emotions and desires are also being illuminated during a new moon.  During this illumination, we are given a window of opportunity to start a fresh, let go of the energy of the previous cycle and set our intentions, dreams & inner-most desires into conscious action.  In addition, during a NEW MOON, both the Moon & Sun are in the same Zodiac sign… giving an exponential boost or concentration of the energy.

The NEW MOON is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects for the forthcoming cycle. Consider sitting in ceremony or personal meditation and affirming to the Universe your intentions & inner-most heartfelt desires for the cycle.

The mid-point of our 29 day lunar cycle is marked by the FULL MOON.  During a Full Moon, the Moon is sitting opposite the Sun and is fully illuminated as it reflects the light of the Sun.  In addition, during a FULL MOON, both the Moon & Sun are opposing each other on opposite sides of the zodiac… which can make for a challenging or intense aspect of energy but also a very potent potential as the Lunar & Solar (yin & yang) are in natural harmonic balance.

During a FULL MOON, there is an amplification of energy and a heightened experience of emotions, feelings, mental processes, dreams etc.  The Full Moon is a powerful time of gratitude, gracefully acknowledging the beauty of life itself and all you have brought into beingness.  You may feel a burning desire to express your creativity, bliss out in sensual activities & through fierce yet profoundly tender vibrations let go of any aspects of your life that no longer serve the grandest vision of your Soul.

The FULL MOON is a great time to ‘moon bathe’ – simply sit under the light of the moon & meditate – and is you breathe-in allow the moon to warm your Heart & expand the beauty of the present moment, and as you breathe-out let the light of the moon transmute that which you wish to release.   Full Moon ceremonies, either lighting a candle for yourself or coming together with others in sacred circle, is a powerful way to bring healing to the self/group and simply BE this Wave of LOVE for all Humanity & planet Earth.  I LOVE placing my crystals out under the Full Moon to cleanse their crystalline structures and infuse them with solar vibrations.

Please refer to the Celestial & Lunar Tab within our Radiance Lightbrary during 2018 for a detailed energetic overview of each LUNAR CYCLE throughout the year.

Lunar & Solar Eclipses 2018

Please read my article on the 2018 -Energy of Lunar & Solar Eclipses to understand how to work with these energetic potentials.

A Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Moon is full and the Earth blocks the Suns rays from partially/fully reaching the Moon, hence the Moon is cast within the Earth’s shadow. A Lunar Eclipse provides a quantum opportunity to release deep-seated wounds, move beyond old fears and to transcend negative patterns or traits within the shadow self.  It is time to ECLIPSE anything that maybe holding you back.

During a Lunar Eclipse it is an opportune time to do much inner-work, and illuminate yourself from the inside-out. You will be inspired to take ownership of your gifts, acknowledge your divine magnificence and shine brightly from within.

A Solar Eclipse occurs on the New Moon, whereby the Moon moves between the Earth and Sun, obscuring Earth’s view of the Sun. The energy of a Solar Eclipse ‘obscures’ our vision forward, such that we can take time to reflect on the present and truthfully see how this relates to our past.

The insights gained are not about dragging up old energy, or reliving painful events or experiences, but rather to positively reassess where you have been and use this knowledge to make quantum leaps on your path moving forward.

Whilst a Solar Eclipse can create upheaval in your life, this ‘forced’ opportunity to reassess or re-evaluate your life provides a profound opportunity to leap into a new sphere of existence beyond your perceived limitations.

Equinoxes & Solstices 2018

Due to the tilt in our Earth’s axis of rotation, throughout the calendar year the Sun appears to rise and fall in different regions of the Sky, creating the Seasons of the year.  This is not of course due to the Sun moving, but due to the Earth moving relative to the Sun.

The four season’s come into fruition by the two Equinox’s and the two Solstices each Solar year.  Please see my article on the Energy of the Equinoxes & Solstices per solar year and the potential they create within our lives here on Earth.

Please refer to the Celestial & Lunar Tab within our Radiance Lightbrary during 2018 for a detailed energetic overview of each Equinox/Solstice throughout the year.

Equinoxes for 2018
In each solar year we have two Equinox’s, one in March (usually around the 20/21st) and one in September (usually around the 22/23rd).

The Equinox is where day and night are of equal length – the energies coming together as one – Heaven & Earth, Spirit & Matter.  As the Spring Equinox we prepare for our re-birth and awakening from the sleep of winter (the great exhalation of the Cosmic Breath) and at the Autumn Equinox we are bringing our energy inward, in preparation for the rest ahead (the great inhalation of the Cosmic Breath).  It is these polarities that make up the whole.

Solstices for 2018
In each solar year we have two Solstice’s, one in June (usually around the 20/21st) and one in December (usually around the 21/22nd).

The Longest day of the year (longest day of sunlight) is the June Summer Solstice (Northern Hemisphere) and the December Summer Solstice (Southern Hemisphere).  Conversely the Shortest day of the year (shortest hours of sunlight) is the June Winter Solstice (Southern Hemisphere) and the December Winter Solstice (Northern Hemisphere).

Where ever you are on Earth, the Summer/Winter Solstice represents an opportunity to celebrate your LIGHT.  As we move into the threshold of a new cycle, it is a time to come together with all humanity through the LOVE of our LIGHT and send a wave of unifying peace through the Crystalline Wisdom Field of our Earth.

Retrograde Planets – 2018

Please read my article on the 2018 – Planetary Retrogrades to understand how to work with these energetic potentials.

Also, please refer to the Celestial & Lunar Tab within our Radiance Lightbrary during 2018 for a detailed energetic overview of Retrogrades throughout the year as it relates to their transiting signs.

Mercury Retrogrades – 2018
23 March 2018 (Aries) – 16 April 2018 (Aries)
26 July 2018 (Leo) – 19 August 2018 (Leo)
17 November 2018 (Sagittarius) – 7 December 2018 (Scorpio)

Mercury (the planet of communication) moves retrograde (appearance of moving backwards in our sky) approximately 3 to 4 times each year and for approximately 3 weeks each time.

Mercury only takes 88 days to transit around the Sun, whereas Earth takes approximately 365 days… hence at times during Mercury’s transit, from the position of Earth, Mercury appears to be moving backwards (Retrograde) in our skies.

Mercury rules all communications such as computers, phones, travel, electronics and all business/personal communications & documentations.  When mercury moves retrograde and into the darker recesses of our psyche, this may herald a time of misunderstandings, mis-communications, computers & electronics crashing and plans going haywire !

So how do you you consciously work with Mercury Retrograde ? Just consider all the ‘RE’s’, ie re-evaluations, re-checking, re-pair, re-store etc., urring on the side of caution and making sure all details are attended to.  This is not a favourable time for signing contracts and do remember to back up your computers BEFORE mercury goes retro.

Rather than perceive Mercury Retrograde as a negative time, I prefer to work with the energy as a wonderful ‘inward’ time to recalibrate my visions and move forward in conscious action when Mercury moves direct.

Venus Retrograde – 2018
6 October 2018 (Scorpio) – 16 November 2018 (Libra)

Venus takes 225 days to do a complete revolution around our Sun and is stationary for somewhere between a few hours or 3 or 4 days. Venus moves into retrograde every 18 months or so, and then stays that way for about 6 weeks.

Venus rules all of our relationships, our relationship to self as well as love, family, friendships and our business relationships. It also is our appreciation of art, beauty and our passions.

When Venus is retro you may find that the world takes on a different hue, as what you previously experienced as beautiful now tends to be seen through different eyes. All your relationships maybe under the microscope and if you have avoided relationship then this maybe exactly what you attract. If you have slipped into old patterns (such as the glamour of overindulging in food, sex, alcohol), it is a time to also examine your relationship with substances and lifestyle choices.

It is often recommend to not take major relationship steps during a Venus retro (such as engagement or marriage or even divorce or quitting a job)… but to objectively explore your emotions and feelings as they come up and then to move forward consciously when Venus goes direct.

Mars Retrograde – 2018
27 June 2018 (Aquarius) – 27 August 2018 (Capricorn)

Mars takes approximately 2 years (687 days) to do a complete revolution around our Sun. Mars moves into retrograde every 2 years + 2 months, and then stays that way for about 55 to 80 days.

Mars rules energy, passion, action, initiative and asserting yourself out in the world.

When Mars is retrograde, this ‘action oriented’ planets energy lacks vitality as the energy is inverted inward. It can at times feel as if you are paddling upstream, with endless delays, roadblocks, setbacks and detours dotting your path. For some, these frustrations may give light to anger and resentment, which may result in outbursts and emotional/physical explosions that aren’t pretty. It is a bit like capping an active volcano, if the internal pressure builds too much the end result could be very messy !

Rather than burn up your internal energy through anger, war & fighting during Mars Retrograde, it would be better to allow and ‘see’ how these delays can serve you. Initiating new projects (eg relationships, contracts, new business deals etc..) during Mars retro most often leads to dead-ends or endless delays, it is better to reflect on or rework existing projects. If set-back do arise, don’t force issues, just go with flow and work with any delays in the knowing that all happens in divine timing for the greater good of all.

Jupiter Retrograde – 2018
9 March 2018 (Scorpio) – 10 July 2018 (Scorpio)

Jupiter takes around 12 years to do a complete revolution around our Sun. Jupiter moves into retrograde approximately every year for around 120 days.

Jupiter rules expansion, freedom, wisdom, travel, foreign affairs, abundance and good luck. It is a social and jolly planet, working with the collective as it spends about 1 year in every sign of the zodiac.

When Jupiter is retro, this energy is reflected inward and we are guided to reevaluate our spiritual beliefs, our societal ethics and our philosophical approach to life. It is a time of truth-seeking and finding the deeper meaning in all aspects of life.

Travel plans can be delayed or cancelled during Jupiter retro. This is a time to slow down and give focus to your personal belief systems and understandings of success and abundance. This is also not the best time to take big risks, or spend up big.. but rather do your research, ponder and follow your inner-guidance when Jupiter moves direct.

Saturn Retrograde – 2018
18 April 2018 (Capricorn) – 6 September 2018 (Capricorn)

Saturn takes approximately 29.5 years to do a complete revolution around our Sun. Saturn moves into retrograde approximately every year for around 140 days.

Saturn is often referred to as the planet of karma, discipline or the dispenser of justice. It is a factual planet that induces us to face our personal reality, and is thorough, unrelenting and breaks down our control issues. I like to view Saturn as a wise old sage.

When Saturn is retro, it is not a time to take short-cuts, but an opportunity to take things slowly and do it correctly the first time around.. or you may find you will be revisiting the project over and over again. It is a time to understand your limitations or limitations of those around you and practice patience. Authority maybe also be an issue at this time, and you may feel like ‘fighting the system’ be it in your family, place of work or the greater sphere of community or government. When Saturn is retrograde there also tends to be a lack of boundaries.. so be mindful of saying YES to everything and then feeling overwhelmed and a loss of power.

Take the opportunity during Saturn retro to do some deep soul searching, assess what needs to change and prepare for this change once Saturn moves direct. It is a time to assess our failures, learn from our mistakes and emerge from the introspection with wisdom and understanding.

Uranus Retrograde – 2018
7 August 2018 (Taurus) – 7 January 2019 (Aries)

Uranus takes about 84 years to do a complete revolution around our Sun, thus spending about 7 years in each sign of the Zodiac. Uranus moves into retrograde approximately every year for around 148 days.

With Uranus, simply ‘expect the unexpected’. Uranus is like a wildcard of the pack, unpredictable, original and out of the box thinking. Uranus can spark revolutions as it has its gaze on more humanitarian, freedom loving and unconventional pursuits.

When Uranus is retro, chaos is often the order of the day as you expect the unexpected of an unexpectable planet ! If you are shy you may find yourself at the centre of attention, or if you are an extrovert you may find yourself hiding away. You may find your personality or behavior quite altered at this time, as your actions in the world oppose what others normally experience or expect of you.

Take the opportunity during Uranus retro to explore inwardly what freedom means to you and what you need to change to be this freedom. Intuition is heightened during this self-help psychological assessment and real ‘ah-ha’ moments are often the order of the day.

Neptune Retrograde – 2018
19 June 2018 (Pisces) – 25 November 2018 (Pisces)

Neptune takes about 165 years to do a complete revolution around our Sun, thus spending about 14 years in each sign of the Zodiac. Neptune moves into retrograde approximately every year for around 150 days.

Neptune is often referred to as the ‘higher octave’ cousin of Venus. Thus our values for love, beauty and passions become more ‘universal’ through Neptune. Neptune is the planet of the mysterious, the illusionary and beyond the confines of the program. It calls us to gain insights from higher states of conscious/awareness/dream state. In it’s polarity, Neptune can also represent the hypnotic trance like state of delusion.

When Neptune is retrograde, people tend to focus more on their dreams, intuition and all creative pursuits. If you are usually in a ‘dream state’ you may find that you work with retro energy to bring this dream into physical form. If you deny the dream state, then retro may induce escapism and the taking of mind-altering substances to block the dream or movie from playing out.

During Neptune retro, turn into the inner-self and be receptive to the truth. The illusion is exposed and reality is factual. This is a great time to foster the inner-creative and bring it into physical form.

Pluto Retrograde – 2018
22 April 2018 (Capricorn) – 1 October 2018 (Capricorn)

Pluto takes 248 years to do a complete revolution around our Sun, thus spending on average about 21 years (12 to 31 years) in each sign of the Zodiac. Pluto moves into retrograde approximately every year for around 5 or 6 months.

PLUTO is the outer most planet in our solar system (and yes it is still a planet in astrology).. and its energy brings about transformation. Pluto induces us to look into the deep recesses of our subconscious and transform that which doesn’t serve. Of course we all have free will & choice… but Pluto has a unique way of pushing your buttons and ‘making you’ transform or else ! Pluto can be pretty intense, but it can also make things happen ! Pluto is about death & birth, destruction & reformation, and endings & beginnings.

When Pluto is retrograde, we are guided to turn inward to our own personal shadow side and take a long hard look at the good, the bad and the ugly. There is no hiding as we ‘see’ our desires and our feelings around power, control and money. And we also ‘see’ our motivation for our desires, ie is it for revenge is it because we really want it ! It is also a time to revisit some of those old wounds, perceived limitations and purge then out of our lives.

During Pluto retro, it is a time to transcend control and acknowledge that transformation will take place. We can flow with the destruction that may come with this inner-phase or we can move through it kicking and screaming… and well simply cause even more unnecessary pain and hurt within our lives.

 

Outer Planetary Transits – 2018

The personal planets – Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus & Mars – move quickly through the Zodiac and represent our individual personal characteristics and experiences.

The outer planets – Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Uranus, Neptune & Pluto – take a much longer time to transit the Sun, hence they shape the big picture themes of our lives. 

Jupiter in Scorpio –
10 October 2017 to 8 November 2018
12 Year transit through the Zodiac

Jupiter (abundance, luck & expansion) moved into Scorpio (passionate, emotional, willpower, psychic, determined, secretive) on the 10 October 2017.  When Jupiter transits a sign, it ‘expands’ the energy/theme of that sign.  Before this Scorpio transit, Jupiter transited through Libra for just under a year – think relationships & partnership with others to pursue common goals through harmonic teamwork.   But now that Jupiter is transiting Scorpio we are re-envisioning our relationship with power & control (in every area of our lives – work, relationships, sex, finances) and finding our own ‘truths’ beyond what we have been told / or what has been imprinted.

Interestingly in the media in early October 2017, Harvey Weinstein (Hollywood Power-Player) was outed/accused of multiple accounts of sexual harrasment, assault & rape.  The world responded through #metoo as Jupiter was ‘outing’ through secretive Scorpio the patriarchal abuse of power & control. 

As Jupiter transits Scorpio for most of 2018, it will be a time to moving through the deep, secretive and often salacious waters of Scorpio and discovering parts of us that are wanting to emerge.  We may discover something different about our sexuality and find new & sensual ways of turn on.  Watch the finances this year as Jupiter & over-confident Scorpio may incur a false sense of security re risk… but then again, maybe this is a good thing.. a opportunity to start something new and step out of your comfort zone.   During this transit, it is important to see through those that may become a bit ‘full of themselves’ as they coerce you into their web with their charm and erotic wit.  Sit back, breathe, what does your heart tell you… and allow Jupiter to uncover those that are trying to play others as fools.

Jupiter in Sagittarius –
8 November 2018
12 Years to transit the Zodiac

Jupiter (abundance, luck & expansion) will move into into Sagittarius (freedom, leadership, adventure, spiritual, optimistic) on the 8 November 2018.  When Jupiter transits a sign, it ‘expands’ the energy/theme of that sign.  Jupiter rules Sagittarius so is naturally at home in this sign
Full writeup will be posted here in November 2018…

Saturn in Capricorn –
20 December 2017 to 21 March 2020
29.5 Years to transit the Zodiac

Saturn (life lessons, wisdom, karma, responsibility) moved into Capricorn (practical, realist, reliable, hard worker) on the 20 December 2017.  Saturn takes approximate 29.5 years to transit the Zodiac and hence spends on average 2-1/2 years in each sign.  The last time that Saturn was in Capricorn was in 1988-1991 – think back to that time and what was happening in your life or what were the themes back then… as Saturn will be pushing you to address these themes once more (hopefully from a greater awareness/consciousness this time !).  Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn so the two do complement each other, even though their energy can be experienced a little differently.  During this Saturn transit, it is a great time to get real and be truly honest with yourself re your work/career, financial plan and every other facet of your life including relationships.  There are no short-cuts with this transit, no quick fixes or easy way outs… this is a transit that compels us to create a plan, ensure EVERY area of our life is brought into balance (that includes self-care) and then to use this solid and harmonised foundation to truly flourish.  Saturn is here is a teacher and Capricorn is ready and willing to learn and gain clarity of how to move beyond challenges and show up for life from a place of self-responsibility.. and self-love.

Chiron in Pisces –
20 April 2010 to 17 April 2018
49-51 Years to transit the Zodiac

Chiron (wounded healer) moved into Pisces (Sensitive, psychic, dreamy, creative, charitable) in April 2010.  Chiron was only discovered in 1977 (though there are pre-discovery photos dating back to 1895).  Chiron is the wounded healer, be it our wounds that are physical, emotional, mental or spiritual.  As Chiron transits Pisces it opens a potential to ‘heal our wounds’ beyond just structure & the physical, to a more conscious state of healing of the body, mind & spirit .  Thus this 8 year transit provides a real opportunity to ‘heal’ areas of your life and facilitate deep transformation.  It is an opportunity to repattern the hologram, or transcend deep cellular or DNA imprints and attune to higher states of consciousness.  Victimhood will become a thing of the past (if you so choose), and forgiveness along with all things mystical and unseen heals.

Chiron in Aries –
17 April 2018 to 14 April 2027
49-51 Years to transit the Zodiac

Chiron (wounded healer) moves into Aries (Leader, impatient, risk taker) in April 2018. 
Full writeup will be posted here soon…

Uranus in Aries –
27 May 2010 to 15 May 2018
84 Years to transit the Zodiac

Uranus (rebellion, freedom, unconventional, technological advancement, humanitarianism) moved into Aries (Leader, impatient, risk taker) in May 2010.  It will be in Aries for 8 years, briefly entering Taurus in May 2018, then it will retrograde back into Aries on 6 Nov 2018 until 6 March 2019.  The last time Uranus was in Aries was 84 years ago !  This period heralds a time of finding your own two feet, your independence and finding freedom to be YOU.  This is a time to move beyond the boundaries of the BOX and own your I AM and not be drawn or defined by the memes of society.  As Einstein said ‘you can’t solve a problem from the same level of consciousness that created it’… thus this is a time to think / feel / be expanded consciousness to solve the problems of today.  Expect the unexpected during this time… and live your life as a direct expression of spirit unique to you… and allow your rawness to empower others to do the same.

Uranus in Taurus –
15 May 2018 to 27 April 2026
84 Years to transit the Zodiac

Uranus (rebellion, freedom, unconventional, technological advancement, humanitarianism) moves into Taurus (patient, pleasure-loving, material, determined, conservative) in May 2018.  So what happens when Uranus transits Taurus for 7 years ? Well these two clash and make some hell of a ruckus… leading to radical changes in the bigger themes of our lives!  When Uranus the planet of revolutionary growth / awakening unites with the Taurean vibe of comfort, security and conservatism… Uranus wants change NOW & Taurus doesn’t want to budge… well life as we know it can get turned upside down, inside out in the blink of an eye. Expect the unexpected in the months and years to come with the clash of these two titans yielding change whether we like it or not!

Neptune in Pisces –
4 April 2011 to 15 May 2025
165 Years to transit the Zodiac

Neptune (Illusion, deception, creativity) moved into Pisces (Sensitive, psychic, dreamy, creative, charitable) in April 2011.  The last time Neptune entered Pisces was in 1848, three years after it was discovered in 1845.  Neptune in Pisces in it’s fullest potential is an awakening to the DIVINE from within.  It fosters a movement beyond materialism / consumerism and the foundations of religious dogma.  Neptune in Pisces fosters spiritual transformation.   This energy provides a potential for humanity to expand beyond perceived limitations through dedicated spiritual practice and to find AUTHENTIC TRUTH.  Allow your IMAGINATION to SEE beyond the illusion and awaken to living with Spirit through heart-n-soul.

Pluto in Capricorn –
26 Jan 2008 to 21 January 2024
248 Years to transit the Zodiac

Pluto (transformation & empowerment) moved into Capricorn (Practical, realist, reliable, hard worker) in Jan 2008.  Pluto was in Sagittarius prior to moving into Capricorn, where it had been transiting since 1995.  Pluto was last in Capricorn Nov 1762 until Dec 1778.  Heralding transformation, Pluto in Capricorn is about death and rebirth or endings and beginnings.  It is a time of breaking down all old outdated structures… structures that embody power & control such as governments, corporations & religion.  This dismantling then creates opportunities to rebuild solid foundations from the ground up and inside-out… structures that support communities, humanity and the sustainable life of this planet.

NOTE:  (Pluto was here briefly in late January 2008, but turned back into Sagittarius by mid-June)
