Each year brings along with it a new cosmic flavor, filled with unique challenges as well as opportunities. In 2018, Gemini, it'll soon become clear that your greatest prospects for growth have to do with work and career.
It all began back on October 10, 2017, when Jupiter moved into your 6th House of Work. Jupiter remains in this part of your chart until November 8, and during this time you can anticipate spectacular opportunities for more -- and more fulfilling -- jobs. If you're in the freelance business, you might have so many people vying for your services that you have to turn down offers. If you are looking to make a job change, you'll find one that is more in-line with your true calling in life. This might manifest near May 25 or on August 19 when Jupiter will be at a dazzling angle to inspirational Neptune. A dream-come-true job offer may indeed come your way! You'll also notice that this year your relationships with colleagues or staff you employ seem to run smoother. Everyone is lifting each other up in your work environment instead of rushing to sabotage or tear each other down. This dynamic will result in success all around.
You might also be in a position to negotiate stronger terms in your benefits or retirement package connected to your job. January 15, April 14, and September 12 are dates when you'll be most successful in this endeavor.
It's up to you now
Other than that time stretch, however, the overriding theme for you connected to finances is learning how to go it alone. It does appear that any support you used to rely on is about to dwindle -- or even disappear. This has to do with Saturn moving into a new area of your chart. He made this move to your 8th House of Shared Resources on December 19, 2017, immediately making you feel the pinch. Get used to it; Saturn will remain in this part of your chart until December of 2020. During the next couple of years, you'll be learning a major lesson about taking responsibility for your own financial health and doing it without as much help from others.
One way this could materialize is if you are recently separated or divorced. Going from a two-income household to a single-income household will surely require adjustments. If you are married or in a committed partnership, it's possible that your sweetheart will go through a rough patch financially and need to rely on you for a bit of time.
In some cases, this might be a year of being audited by the IRS or finding out that you owe more money in back taxes than you thought. It might be a year where you're trying to take greater responsibility for your financial health and do your best to rectify any mistakes you made in the past -- especially connected to debt. Consider hiring a specialist who can help you with debt consolidation or settlement.
Exploring other realms
In other news, it might be time to channel your inner rebel. Uranus, the planet of sudden change, will visit your private 12th house from May 15-November 6. During this time, you might notice a deeper yearning to explore an unusual or progressive path. At the same time, however, you might struggle with shame or embarrassment about it, and prefer to keep this exploration discreet. Another possibility is that you'll take a strong interest in studying a metaphysical science such as Astrology, Numerology or another field. You'll experience a major spiritual and emotional awakening as a result. Either way, this will be a time to get in touch with whatever it is that makes you unique -- and stop disowning it.
On November 8 Jupiter will move into your partnership sector, opening up incredible opportunities for your business and personal relationships. If you're in a serious relationship, it's possible you'll consider getting married. Either way, your greatest opportunities for growth will come from other people. Embrace the benefits.
