Welcome in the year 2018, dear Ones. May it be a happy, healthy and abundant one for you. 2018 reduces to 11 in numerology, what is the masternumber of divine service.
In 2018 one big topic will be to co-operate with the divine, to bring heaven down to earth, what might sometimes be a heavy task with Saturn staying in Capricorn until 2020.
I am writing about it, as I can relate to these energies very much. I´ve got Neptun near my Midheaven in my birthchart and Venus and Chiron in Pisces, so working in divine service is my lifepath. But I´ve been sended into my mission with a lot of grounding energies and for very good reasons! I´m a double capricorn with the ruler of Capricorn, Saturn, squaring my Sun.
Getting real or getting nowhere, that´s been my task and it will be a global topic in this year.
See Jupiter will stay in Scorpio almost all of the year and he´ll blow up all the dirty, dark stuff. Please do not despair, but welcome it. It´s been there all the time. I had to face some really ugly stuff myself last year, shattering a lot of illusions, but it is necessary as denial destroys us otherwise.
Well and when it comes to Saturn I´ve gotta explain his energies a bit. Saturn has a bad reputation as he is seen as the reaper and bringer of hardship and limitations. Although he seems to have been pu(ni)shing me a lot in my life, I came to a point where I started to understand this energy better. He is the old zen-master, making you climb the mountain every morning to carry up the water and you might curse him for that, what leaves him totally unimpressed. He holds the vision of your strong body, mind and spirit, and he´ll make sure to bring it into the physical reality. You can trust that every hardship he delivers is needed. Saturn is also the planet of time, structure and matter. On a global level his energies have been abused to install regulations and rigid laws, the old matrix of destortion is created with a shadow-aspect of Saturn. He´s been used to build the old system. Almost all energies have been misused by the dark forces ruling this planet the last few thousand years, so do not blame Saturn, but the global state of (un-)consciousness.
But Saturn working for divine service in this year, will bring in the cosmic law. Spirit is going to matter literally. People can not act out destructive and expect to not receive the fruits of their actions. You´ll see quite some tough deliveries this year. Saturn brings tangible results and as he is not afraid to take away all that is not of integrity. Think of the old zen-master again. Could someone very mighty abuse him? Of course. But he´ll never give up, but wait patiently until time is ripe, like a Yoda would wait for the right timing. Saturn knows all about the right timing. It is now.
What does that mean for your personal life? It means it is a perfect year to focus on the important things, those that really matter and to let go of clutter. It means that when you have something you wanted to realize for a long time, now you can take actions to make it real. Saturn is not very likely to bring overnight success, but when you take small steps on a regular basis, you´ll get tangible results. Make sure what you want to bring down to earth is of integrity and for a higher purpose, than you´ll be supported. And when you have worked for a long time on such a project, it will now come into fruition.
There is something I have to adress to the spiritual community. We didn´t enter earth to dream us away into other realms, to swagger with our important pastlifes or the name of our guru and we didn´t enter this planet to find more ways to escape. We came to embody the change. We have to get real. I am working with energies on a quantum level as a healer and I am using words and ideas as an author, but being real means holding a stranger in your compassionate arms while his sobbing wets your shoulder and his pain hits your energy field…and to deliver a safe h(e)aven of light and love in this moment, not as an idea, but in reality. It means to buy a bowl of soup for a homeless person or to gift some of your unnecessary clutter to people in need. Compassion in your daily actions. Heaven on earth. Shine your immense light!
