Angelic Astrology – January 2018
By Rev. Colleen, contributing writer for Angel Messenger
Here we are in a brand new year and with a brand new energy vibration! We just left 2017 behind with its birthing “pains” into new beginnings, and now we enter 2018….a year that takes us to the next step of that New Path!
2018 is a Universal Master Number 11 Vibration Year. (2+0+1+8=11) The reduced vibration when adding the two 1’s together is a 2. This means that it is a year that will focus on balance, equality, peace, the Divine Feminine energies, and relationships & partnerships of all kinds.
The vibration of 2018 as Master Number 11 is the vibration of the Visionary and the Light Worker. It is about Illumination and Leadership, Intuition and Enlightenment……and, it is about working together as a team, and within partnerships, for the highest good of the collective.
We are balancing the strength, independence, confidence, and leadership of the two 1’s with the peace, compromise, diplomacy, and equality of the 2.
The 11th Major Arcana of the Tarot is Justice, ruled by the sign of Libra, the partnership sign of the zodiac, and follows the Path of Balance. The Justice card symbolizes Truth and Fairness, indicated by the sword and the scales that Lady Justice carries with her. According to the book, “Essence of the Tarot” by Megan Skinner, this Major Arcana “represents a time to focus on the aspects of your life that are out of balance…..seek middle ground and resist going to extremes….ask that divine truth be revealed to you.”
The month of January is a Universal 12/3 Vibration. The vibration of the 3 is about expansion, creative self-expression, all forms of communication, and abundance & prosperity energies. January will be a time of soul growth and learning, and a time of focusing on, and healing, our belief systems to be more of a “glass half full”, rather than a “glass half empty” mentality.
The 12th Major Arcana of the Tarot is The Hanged Man and is about the Path of Surrender, ruled by planet Neptune, overseer of the spiritual dimensions. This describes January as a month to let go and just be….trust and have faith that all is as it should be in this moment. It is about looking at circumstances and situations from a higher perspective and seeking the sacred connection within yourself, and in life itself!
The first astrological energy of significance is powerful! We have a Full Moon at 11 degrees Cancer on January 1st, and it is a Super Moon! What does this mean? A Super Moon is when the Moon is at perigee or the point in its orbit that it is closest to the Earth, and this will make the energies of this Full Moon lunation even more influential and potent! We only had one Super Moon in 2017, which was the Full Moon in Gemini in December. In 2018 we have two Super Moons and they are both occurring in January! How’s that for a powerful start to the New Year! This Full Moon opposes both Venus, planet of relationships and money, and Pluto, ruler of transformation and regeneration. It also positively connects with Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio, and Neptune in Pisces forming a Grand Trine in Water. There is something happening in the realm of feelings and emotions with this important lunation.
On January 2nd, Uranus, the Great Awakener, and ruler of the Higher Dimensions turns back to direct motion at 24 degrees Aries. This will also be very powerful with most of us being able to feel its effects. This may be experienced as anything and everything from not being able to sleep well because we are experiencing a download of Universal Energies, to feeling rebellious and wanting to break free of old belief systems, circumstances, and paradigms, to sudden and unexpected redirections on our Path! Mercury, ruler of thoughts and information, will connect with Uranus on January 6th, intensifying the energies of new and innovative ideas, inspirational visions of the future, networking and communication with others, and heightened psychic perceptions.
On January 9th we have the Sun, our identity, Venus, our values, and Pluto, ruler of our subconscious patterns, all connecting at the same degree in Capricorn. This may bring huge changes and a deepening in relationships (Venus) or within ourselves (Sun) as we release old patterns and fears, and allow transmutation of these energies to take place.
Mercury moves out of fiery Sagittarius and into the practical sign of Capricorn on January 11th and then joins with Saturn in this sign on January 13th. While Mercury, the Messenger, is in the sign of the sea goat, our thoughts, ideas, and communications will be more grounded and down to earth. We have the ability to make a plan now that will assist us in taking the next steps needed on our spiritual journey. Also during this time, on January 13th and 14th, both Venus and the Sun will challenge Uranus, so look for some unexpected situations with business, money, or relationships, as this is possible.
We have a New Moon at 26 degrees Capricorn on January 16th heralding a time of new beginnings with work, career, finances or things of a more practical nature. Right before this lunation, while we are still in the “dark of the moon” time period, the Moon will challenge Pluto and Uranus, so be prepared for some deep changes and redirections in life, or within your own psyche.
On January 17th lovely Venus moves into independent and freedom-oriented Aquarius, and the Sun follows her on January 19th. Aquarius is the energy of the humanitarian and those that band together for a cause or to assist the collective in some way. We may see more group efforts taking place during the next few weeks.
Mars, planet of energy and action, moves into inspirational Sagittarius on January 26th! Now things are cooking! This will speed up the activity of forward movement and momentum! Sagittarius is a mutable (changeable) fire sign and is known to sometimes be impatient, and with Mars being a fire planet, the unfolding of circumstances are sure to pick up speed!
We end the month with Mercury, ruler of the mental realm, joining the Sun and Venus in the intellectually brilliant sign of Aquarius, increasing the efforts of “the group.” But what is even more important is that we also have our second Full Moon of the month….something that does not regularly happen.
On January 31st we have a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 11 degrees of Leo, which is also a Super Moon just like the one that started out this first month of 2018! Full Moons are about culmination and intense and powerful energies….Super Moons also intensify the energies….AND, this is a Lunar Eclipse which is even more powerful! This Full Moon opposes Venus in Aquarius and conjuncts both Ceres, asteroid of the mother and nurturer, as well as the North Node (Destiny Point) in Leo. With the North Node involved with this eclipse energy, this is sure to be one of the most powerful times, if not THE most powerful time, of the year 2018! January is definitely the month to set new intentions into movement!
