This is the most important week of 2018 because Uranus changes signs, moving into Taurus on the 15th. This energy creates a possible seven year global crisis, especially regarding money and finances, and welcomes in the terrible 2020’s. (The last time this occurred was 1935-1942)
The New Moon in Taurus is on Tuesday the 15th is at 25 degrees Taurus. This is an important new moon because inventive Uranus moves into Taurus for the first time in about 84 years at the same time. Technology changes our production of goods and services in the next seven years, and that means robotics taking over jobs, using new technology to deal with money, and even how we learn music, to name just a few. There are heavy changes coming with our technology, financial institutions, the world markets, science as well as our wonderful Mother Earth.
A Taurus New Moon asks you to check in with what you value and that which no longer holds interest. It’s time for cleaning out closets, basements and attics and having a yard sale, be it physical or emotional. Taurus helps you manifest your needs and desires, but the price is hard work.
Also on the same day as this New Moon is ambitious Mars moving into idealistic Aquarius, and making a disruptive and possibly dangerous challenge to Uranus. This brings earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, storms, and quick, unexpected weather changes. (See my 2018 predictions)
Mars remains in Aquarius for six months, because it retrogrades, and therefore will square Uranus three times; May 17 – 18; AUG. 2. 3; — Sept. 20-21. This is know as “a play in three acts, and will bring about a conclusion that begins in May. This is something you may have been hanging onto and needed to release since around 2011. This brings about surprises, shocking scientific changes, more knowledge about our Universe, and of course forced adaption’s and change. Also Queen Elizabeth will be stepping down and Prince Charles will take over the British Monarchy.
The bad side could be drastic weather, bringing serious accidents, especially in aviation. Don’t force issues or machinery now because things break under this energy. Do take action to open to innovative ways to live your life, and that includes learning new technology. As a side note, Mars turns retrograde in Aquarius in late June through August, so the next several weeks gives you hints about changes you will need to make before autumn.
We won’t have long to wait because the first square happens on Wednesday, May 16th —so when you wake up on May 17th the events could be all over the news. By Thursday evening things should have calmed down, as the Moon moves into nourishing Cancer.
Friday has a nurturing Cancer moon, so that should help reduce some of the high nervous energy that came from the energy of the New Moon. Friday morning is highly productive for mental work and serious conversations, so get your work done early on Friday so you can have a more playful weekend.
Venus moves into Cancer on Saturday for about three weeks, so food, nutrition, family, and home beautification are all good things to do.
The Sun moves into Gemini through mid-June on Sunday. This helps you open to new ideas, explore new opportunities, or activate your restless, need to know more side. So create a blog, plan some travel, begin to meditate, and above all, finish what you start.
