2018 January Pet Business Astrology Forecast

Every New Year’s beings the promise of a fresh start and this one is no different. In fact, you can feel the optimism in the air.  Nonetheless, the New Year’s Day full moon in opposition to a quartet of Capricorn planets is the Universe’s way of reminding you of the importance of a strong and steady foundation.


This message is reinforced by Saturn’s recent return to his own sign: a reminder for grownups to demand respect and the rest of us to work within established structure. Saturn also demands that you operate within the limits of the resources at your disposal. Anchor your dreams to a solid plan and you will accomplish a great deal.


And yet… contrarian Uranus is motionless, about to move forward, ready to throw a monkey wrench or two into the best-laid plans… Above all be flexible. And read the small print. The devil really is in the details.

When Uranus does resume its forward motion on the 2nd, it signals the beginning of a six-week wave of energy when all transiting planets are moving direct. Events will move and decisions be made quickly. Although action taken in undue haste will be subject to revision later, this window is an opportunity for those ready to seize the bull by the horns.  


Mark your calendar for the 8th and 9th, a window for positive legal and financial moves when Sun, Venus, Mars make quick moving aspects to Jupiter and Pluto.


The January 16th New Moon pulls in Venus to remind you that you catch more flies with honey than vinegar. A friendly aspect between Jupiter and Pluto suggest a favorable time for financial negotiation. Yet the right angle between Uranus and the New Moon position is quite the fly in the ointment, signaling potential disruption or surprise.


As the month advances, the Sun and Venus also advance into future-oriented Aquarius. Balancing your need for relaxation and creative self-expression against the demands of others becomes paramount at the Full Moon eclipse on the 31st. Sometimes it’s just best to say “no.”
