- 18-MONTH KARMIC PHASE: Nov. 8, 2018 to May 5, 2020
Aries (March 21-April 19)
This karmic phase highlights your ambitions versus your security drives. The unusual truth is: security wins, while ambition will meet inexplicable headwinds from November 8/18 to May 5/20. This period urges you to embrace humility and reject pride (which might whisper temptingly). Your luck (not karmic) cycle deeply favours higher learning, international travel, and legal solutions. One of these might be a great focus if you take a sabbatical or time off.
Pulling back from career can actually bring bigger rewards than staying involved. E.g., you might attend school and qualify for a better career position; or your travels can bring you the wisdom to succeed more quickly. You might “end” a career, or take a year off, then find that those home renovations, or the purchase of an empty lot, brings two or more times your annual salary when you sell it.
This karmic phase is NOT a good time to change careers, no matter how suffocated or restricted you might feel in your present position. (Your career is presently under negative influences — only to May 2020. But if you start a new career or business now, or merely switch employers, that new situation will always be negative.) Don’t launch a new business. (Especially if you need the aid of powerful people — they will delay and delay — or worse.) If you demand a promotion, seek recognition, or push your pet project, those in charge might resent your pushiness — and push back.
All this has little effect on pure work or employment — these remain strong and fortunate (as long as you don’t alienate higher-ups by insisting on a prestigious job).
You’ll experience smooth and pleasant progress if you opt for humility, seek quietude, and pursue family, nature, security, domesticity. Nurture your family. Garden. Build a house. Owning ten apartments is better than being a middle manager with your name in gold. Maybe most important, these 18 months give you a clear, healthy look at your life thus far, and let you relax enough to contemplate where you want to go in life. Two most important things: direction and energy. You can decide on the former, and build up the latter.
❤️❤️ARIES: March 21-April 19
Your understanding will blossom into a new, wider, more accepting, loving view of society and the world, Aries. 2019 will bring far travel, higher education, publishing/media ventures, cultural and philosophical interests, legal involvements — all with a big spoonful of good luck! So pick one or two, and charge ahead. (Push these to mid-April, then rest, re-plan until early August, then charge forth again, to early December.)
Oh, I forgot one thing: love. You might fall in love this year, with someone who would make a good wedding partner. You’ll find love most quickly when pursuing the directions just mentioned — far travel, education, etc. Libraries, transportation hubs, lawyers’ offices, schools, a neighbourhood philosophy club, church, etc. — these are fertile hunting grounds.
Your career and social standing are under pressure. Circumstances (and the boss!) insist that you work hard, but when it’s time for reward everyone falls silent. Be good humoured, long-suffering.
Some “don’t’s” before mid-2020: don’t quit one job unless you have another one to go to; no matter how unfair (or boring) your work burden feels, don’t protest, just lower your shoulder and get the job done; don’t push higher-ups to implement your favourite proposals. During this period, outside forces might cause a job change — that’s okay, flow with it. Ultimately, you could gain more from rest, contemplation and “family time” than from career ambitions.
Your determination and magnetism soar January/February. An Aquarian friend might not stay long, but he/she makes you happy. March starts 7 years of “different” money sources. You might grow charitable, give to Africa, etc. Romance sparks this summer and October/November. The latter period might lead to marriage, or to “war.” Get serious about chores in September. Someone’s attracted in December — and you’re feeling unusually sexy! Careful with finances, investments this autumn: be deliberate, not impulsive. (I think, not sure.)
