Give mundane tasks spiritual meaning

Intuition provides answers

Take a Zen approach

You want to find the purpose behind your work or what you do. Time to turn those daily chores into a spiritual practice that nourishes – no matter how mundane they may be. It’s also time to look at how what you do and how you approach it and your money are linked. There’s a sense of new mindfulness settling over all of this as the Sun enters your 6th this week. Do watch out for stress and tension. All the more reason to practice being in the moment, present with one task only – the one you are doing.  Cultivate a Zen approach and you’ll be amazed at what you are able to achieve, how you impress others doing it and most importantly, how much better you feel.

This week’s full Moon illuminates your 12th of spiritual truths, psychic abilities and dreams. You can channel inspired creativity under this Moon and also a deep, inner knowing. If you are seeking insight into a situation, prepare for sudden flashes. The first name or the first idea that pops into your head could be the correct one. You’re joining the dots of a complex, cosmic puzzle the solution to which is now so obvious you wonder why you could not see it before. This Moon reveals secrets and the true colour of people’s souls. Be the observer now but stay connected to the moment.

Does love have a sense of déjà vu?

August sees the retrograde weather peak and then slowly but surely begin to break up. You start the month with ruler Mars still retrograde in your 11th and by the 13th it has re-entered your 10th. By the end of the month both Mars and also Mercury in your 5th, will have moved direct once more. There’s this feeling of ‘going over old ground’ hanging over August. Especially when it comes to your career. Saturn which rules your 10th is also retrograde in here and will remain so until September. This is a time when you may have to put in a lot of hard work when it comes to your ambitions, and defer the rewards until later.

The universe is asking you if you have a long-term plan? What provisions have you made for your future? What have you built or established for yourself? This especially applies to your reputation and how others see you. Or how you want to be seen. Especially by people in a position to help you. August will allow you one final period of adjustment or refinement when it comes to this.

Your value system and your money will be your next major area of soul experience in 2019. You may have had a taste of what is to come around this thanks to Uranus’s arrival in your financial sector in May. The 7th sees Uranus turn backwards in here after a brief visit and head back towards your 1st. It will re-enter your sign for one final visit in November. Uranus imbues us with magical, radical thinking. Ideas that free us. Or else it brings about the unexpected developments that do just that. Be aware that it is up to initiate the changes necessary for our evolution. Uranus is not a planet that wants us to stand still. If we fail to do this, Uranus steps in and does this for us, but in ways we may not initially like. Look at what changes you can set in motion for yourself now. Especially when it comes to your money, how you earn it, how you spend it or use it, and the resources you have at your disposal. It begins with you defining what adds real worth to your life – and shedding what doesn’t.

This month is no time to be a recluse however. Ditch the Netflix marathon, and write, direct and star in your own production. The Sun in your fabulous 5th wants to put you in the spotlight. Plus when it comes to love, Venus enters her ruling 7th in your chart from the 7th. It’s time to look at your capacity to attract. This is your house of partnerships or your ‘opposite’ number. Who or what are you attracting this August? With the retrograde weather does this have a past flavour to it and if so, how familiar or how different does it feel this time around? If there is a sense of déjà vu around this, most importantly look to how different you may be this time around. In all our relationships there is one common denominator: Us. If we want a different outcome it is we who need to change, not the other party!

What you do end up attracting may have bigger implications for your future than what is immediately apparent. The partial solar eclipse in your 5th mid-month could deliver a surprise package or have bigger implications for change than you think. Remember, eclipses conceal and then reveal. If it is a total eclipse, then the ‘cover-up’ is complete. If it is a partial eclipse, then well – it’s only partially concealed. With all eclipses however, the truth eventually ‘comes to light’. What may be hidden within this one is your need to shine and for recognition. If so, an outlet or an opportunity will emerge once you acknowledge this. Children, step-children, creative projects or lovers are other areas this eclipse may impact on. To become a parent – or to admit this is not what you want.

Any creative project begun now may reveal hidden aspects – perhaps of its creator, or take on a life all its own.
The Sun’s entry into your 6th this month brings you a month-long focus on your work and routine but also on your debts and what you owe. Is your level of debt making you ill? The next month asks you to ‘get your act together’ on all kinds of levels but also wants you to look at where you are ‘acting out’ a role that may now be typecasting you in ways that are just not helpful.

Does that new lover have that spooky sense of déjà vu about them on any level for example? Take it slowly and remember what I said about you being the star of your own show. That means you call the shots and write the outcome. You’re the star so act like one. Express don’t repress, yourself. The spotlight is everywhere for you this month, Aries. Put in your best performance and whether you have an audience or not, dance like no-one is watching.

In a nutshell: Write, star and direct your own production this month, Aries. You’re stepping out of the retrograde shadows and back into the spotlight. Time to express yourself – and get the recognition you deserve.

Aries 2018 

HOLY MOLY! The Astrology of 2018 is going to be life changing! Since 2011, Uranus, the rebellious, unpredictable, genius has been in your sign. No doubt your life has had a revolution over the past seven years. On top of that, your world may have been plagued by instability and wild times. Hopefully, by now, you realise that there has been deeper meaning and opportunity in all the crazy events? Whatever you thought of as stable seven years ago has long since transformed. Mr Electric is not quite finished with you yet, so make the most of it, and awaken your genius within. Be the individual that you are and push your originality, especially in the first few weeks of this year.

2018 Astrology kicks off with a helping hand as Uranus turns direct on the 2nd giving you a final chance to break free from any chains that still hold you. With Mars your ruler joining forces with lucky Jupiter on the 7th in your subconscious shadow side, you are overcoming issues of powerlessness and grabbing the reins. Be careful of not chucking yourself into 2018 by being too dominant. When you seize command, make sure you do it honourably. Jupiter is in your power zone until November 2018 and is bringing you benefits (as long as you face your shadow side) and could turn your finances around. Jupiter is helping you deal with sexuality issues and helping you unleash your inner lover. Others find you compelling and magnetic. In fact, much of 2018 is about you coming into your sexual and financial power as well as facing and letting go of fear.

When Uranus enters Taurus on the 15th May, he brings a revolution to your security and finance. The good news is that it may be that he delivers a surprising success. Dramatic events force you to use your unparalleled flare while taking risks to succeed. You can also have extraordinary achievements with anything technology based. So write the blog, create the app and dare to do and allow your inner wizard out to play.

Uranus retrograde does nip back into your sign in November 2018 until March 2019. However, when he exits once more, the personal revolution that has taken place for you is now well and truly over as he takes up his usual seven-year stint in your 2nd. 2018 gives you a taster of what’s to come from 2019. Having said that you’re more equipped to handle whatever is thrown at you, as you’ve got used to his erratic ways. Keep your wits about you and expect the unexpected and think outside the crate!

Saturn the serious has already shifted signs and gone into his bosom buddy Capricorn. I expect we will see some shady goings on in the world of finance and a leaning towards conservative values. The old world order is about to change and with it your own attitude to your career and your reputation. I’m not saying you are going to become a part of the establishment or don a hipster suit to work, but you are going to get more serious about what you want to achieve.

In 2017 you lived a pretty free and bohemian existence, 2018 turns your attention to work and structure. Arrangements that are not working will be broken down. 2018 is not the year to cut financial corners, or invest in the cheese windmills of Siberia, but it is the year to go for an unusual idea with a practical approach. You are empowered with exceptional stamina. You have a renewed focus on achievement as this is the culmination of a 30-year cycle. What have you been building up to over the past 28/30 years? Watch what happens when Mars conjuncts Saturn on April 2nd giving you the stamina of a Game of Thrones dragon ridden by a Queen.

On the 6th March, Venus La Amore goes into Aries! March is your love magnet time, you ooze charm and have a way with lovers. Spring is the perfect month to attract a lover, heal a relationship and make peace and nurture yourself. Your view and experience of love elevates now. How are you going to make the most of Venus snuggling you? What do you want from love?

One of the big deals of 2018 is  Chiron, the wounded healer, going into your sign. Now Chiron is not technically a planet, he’s a Comet, but a pretty special one. He has a very irregular way of travelling the Universe. When Chiron comes to your sign it has massive spiritual significance; it’s time to heal your deepest wounds. Chiron’s wisdom is that our hurts have also given us gifts and he encourages us to recover and support others with the understandings we have learned along the way. Any dents in our ‘ego’, in our sense of self are healing.

The last time Chiron was in Aries was 1968 – 1977 a time of punk rock, feminism and all sorts of ‘fighting to be individual’. Martin Luther King was assassinated 3 days after Uranus went into Aries in 1968 and John F Kennedy was also murdered a few months later, both of these men changing the world in the process. We also landed on the Moon (allegedly haha). Chiron teaches us that our vulnerability is our strength. It’s an inner acknowledgement of where we have come from.

Mars your fiery ruler goes retrograde from the 26th June which might initially make you feel a bit Meh. The Fire King is in your social and collaboration zone. While Mars is doing his backwards slide, it might be worth taking time out and focusing on putting your personal energy into projects and work alone for a while. Don’t panic if you feel all Hermit-like, take the time to recharge. Mars will soon be back dragging you into the limelight from August 28th.

On the 8th November Jupiter Lord of luck and expansion enters Sagittarius and your house of adventure. From November onwards you’re about to become quite the swashbuckler! The Universe is bringing all sorts of travel possibilities, higher learning, a thirst for knowledge and treasure. The more you express your unique soul, the bigger the reward. Unusual and fascinating people are going to cross your path and show you a world of jewels you never knew existed! Get ready for a bigger soul stretching experience and see 2018 as your training ground to get you ready for what’s to come.
