After a 2017 of fire governed mainly by the sign Leo, we entered in 2018 with an energy more connected to the female elements earth and water.
In 2017 we have learned to become owners of our lives, to draw our inner luster and to manifest our being. Still this work follows during the 2018, with a series of eclipses in the Leo-aquarium axis, and with the lunar nodes on the same axis until November. This axis is the axis of power, misinterpreted and badly used for centuries until now.
However, the energy of this 2018 will focus on the cancer-Capricorn axis, the family axis, and the inheritance.
In this year we have the opportunity to transform the concept of power, to change the history of domination and violence. The job is to understand that true power comes from loving ourselves, trusting our being and manifesting it to the world with pride. When we shine, we are a light that can enlighten others from generosity and openness of heart.
This year, the cancer-Capricorn axis teaches us to understand our heritage, that is, where we come from. In the first place, we must understand our family tree, our ancestors, everything that makes us who we are.
This includes our genetic inheritance, our DNA, and family inheritance, patterns of behavior, habits, ways of thinking, education, and transmitted blockades. This work extends to everything that we have received on a social level, what we have learned about our history, which makes us think that the world works in a certain way.
This year all this may be revolutionized. It is likely that new truths will appear, that hidden things are uncovered so far, new ways of seeing history and that this leads to identity crises. This is why it is important to be open to new ways of seeing life and reinventing itself by flowing with the changes that appear.
In 2018 there are some important astrological events that accompany these changes: In spring Uranus enters Taurus and Chiron in Aries. The previous change of sign of these planets was in the spring of 2011, when Uranus entered Aries and Chiron in Pisces, accompanying a new social awakening. Although these changes affect mainly social and planetary, we can review in our lives what has happened in these last 7 years, take a look at this cycle and see how we have become through the tests that life has been presenting us.
In this new cycle, there will be a return to nature, to the wild. We will consider new ways of relating to the planet, becoming aware of the importance of taking care of the planet we inhabit and that everything we do to Mother Earth we do to ourselves.
We will realize how what is inside, is outside and what is above is below, understanding the connection between our physical body and the planet, and how they work in the same way. Connecting with the body and the earth will be our anchor to survive the changes in life and identity crises.
In autumn, Uranus will return to Aries a few more months and Chiron to Pisces, giving us one more chance to complete the unfinished work of the previous cycle, healing our deep wounds of inner loneliness, abandonment and separation.
This year is favorable to work with emotions, learning the lesson of the sign cancer and the element water: water that does not flow, that does not move, stagnates. The same thing happens to us with our emotions, if we repress them, reject them or stick to them, we end up stuck and blocked. This manifests itself in the physical body through annoyances, disarrays and tensions at first, that if they creep in time become diseases. All emotions have a function and it is essential to recognize when they appear to listen to them, rather than suppression. Cancer teaches us to connect with our sensibility, to manifest it, and to treat ourselves with more affection, sweetness and softness, listening and allowing everything that appears inside.
In short, this year be nice to yourself. Understand where you come from to get to know yourself better, heal your tree and your wounds from forgiveness and empathy and permítete to be fully you.
May this 2018 bring you peace and inner plenitude.
