The Witches Digest for Friday, January 19th, 2019

(Part 2 Horoscopes & Divination)

2018 – Rise Of The Earthkeepers

Last year ended with a powerful Super Full Moon highlighting the last vestiges of turmoil, confusion and emotion, which characterized the past year.  In 2017 we experienced the breakdown and simultaneous release of the foundational energies of our world.  The resulting purification and timeline shifts made it very difficult to see the way forward.  Nonetheless, despite all the disarray a profound healing occurred, which expanded the new consciousness on the planet.

The old world is rupturing and in 2018 we see the continuation of this process.  The governments, wars and abuse of woman and children is the old world dying off.  It is may seem that these external disasters and challenges are building, but they are being emphasised pushing us to change.  The old, dominate, ego-driven world is collapsing and a new soul-guided reality is emerging. With the rise of this new reality a very necessary transformation is taking place in our basic human ethos.  A new awareness is awakening and will realign humanity with Universal principles and values, which take into consideration the Earth and nature. An adjustment in the balance of all things on this planet will ensue.

Everything in our Universe is comprised of five elements, which work in balance, to create physical form.  These five elemental forces of water, earth, air, fire and ether are the building blocks of all life.  They come together in an alchemical process to create life.  At the center of our world is the Earth, the planet we live on. Moving around and over the Earth is Water in the form of oceans, rivers and lakes.  Water nourishes and impregnates the Earth to give life.  Over the realm of Earth and Water is Air, the atmosphere in which we live.  All living things need air to breathe.  Then we have Fire, which lights up our sun, moon and stars and generates the life force energy needed to sustain life.  And finally, Ether, which connects all things.  Balance is the force that unifies them.

All of nature receives, stores and transforms energy.  The patterns in nature are complex systems, which facilitate the flow and transformation of energy on and in the planet.  Everything is connected by these energy flows and any disruption to the energy carriers (nature) can cause major environmental changes, which affects all of life on Earth.  Because of the interrelatedness of all life on Earth, all living things upon her share an evolutionary process.  Being intimately connected to the planet we require a balance of nature’s element to grow, evolve and survive.  Our energetic bodies are intimately connected, via the elements, to the energy flows in nature.  Our emotional body is connected to the Water; our physical body to the Earth; our mental body to the air; our spiritual body to the sun; and our Soul to Ether.  As a result of this deep energetic connection, we experience a sympathetic response to any damage in nature.

In this modern world, it has become easy to forget our connection to and dependence on nature.  With this disconnection from nature humanity has forgotten that the Earth is a living, sacred being.  We have drifted away from the sacred essence of the Earth and focused our awareness and energy mostly on the development of the physical and mental aspects of our being.  The emotional and spiritual have been largely neglected.  Thus, we have lost track of who we are and why we are here.

The damage done to nature is more awful than the world’s worst nuclear accident.  Chernobyl caused a lot of human damage and yet, the ecosystem as a whole has thrived without humans.  The idea that humans are superior to nature is only an assumption that lies within the shadow of the collective mind.  Our emotional, physical, mental and spiritual aspects are out of balance, which is reflected in the natural world with the damage to the Earth, the pollution of the waters, the poisoning of the air and the explosive nature of our sun.  As a result, humanity is living in its shadow and we have become fractured and fragmented.

The great harm that has been done to nature needs to be corrected.  With the rising of the new Earth the energetic patterns, which create and sustain life, are evolving.  These patterns exist at all levels and permeate the Universe reflecting the unifying order of all creation.  The evolutionary process is occurring in response to nature’s need to heal.  Humanity will therefore be required to evolve and heal emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually to ensure it’s survival upon the planet.  For that reason, it is essential that you reconnect with and develop a deeper, more conscious connection with nature and the Earth.

Nature is receptive and relishes being an active participant in your healing and growth.  Spending time in nature attunes your energy and enables you to assimilate and integrate the changing energies emanating from nature.  This adjusts your biorhythms to meet those of the planet, bringing balance and a profound shift in your relationship to the natural world.  As a result, your entire energetic structure will alter to rebalance the elemental forces within you.  A process which will assist you in anchoring your soul within the new Earth reality.

This year, more than ever, it becomes import to reconnect with nature’s cycles of birth, life, death; spring, summer, autumn and winter.  This connection will expand your consciousness and highlight your role as an Earthkeeper.  As you realise this role you will begin to realise that you have the capacity to communicate with the Earth because you come from the Earth.  Nature will transmit subtle messages and guide you to uncover what is in need of healing in both yourself and the natural world.

As an incarnation of divinity, you hold the power to create, neutralise and transform energy for the planet.  Embrace your role as an Earthkeeper and humbly learn to walk a path of harmony and balance.  Learn to focus your energy and become the living link between Heaven and Earth.  Remember that you hold the power to bring change and transformation to humanity.

Root yourself in the Earth and surrender your need to control and dominate.  Connect with nature’s evolutionary process and allow yourself to feel its abundant energy. Hear the Earth’s cry and journey to the oceans, the mountains, the forests and the lakes.  Learn to dance with the elements, to shift energy and awaken the every-flowing well of creativity that resides deep within you.  Engage the full power of your heart and seek to live your life in reverence for all of life.

This Weekend’s Love Horoscope: Share the Love

Your love horoscope for the weekend of January 19-21

This past week Venus entered the humanitarian sign of Aquarius, reminding us of the importance of tending to our friendships and community relationships — not just our intimate ones. This weekend, you’ll want the freedom to mix and mingle and to express your individuality. If you are coupled up, allow your lover to express their unique self and encourage them to spend time with their friends; it would be advisable that you do the same for yourself! If you’re single, this is a good time to find some organizations, clubs, or causes you are passionate about. You’re open to sharing your love freely and unselfishly with the world now — who knows, you could meet a potential partner this way!

On Friday the brilliant Sun also enters Aquarius, so these themes of freedom, originality, and universal love are especially strong this weekend. Mercury makes contact with Neptune, also on Friday, and your mind will feel stimulated in the most positive ways; you will have more sensitivity and awareness of those you surround yourself, and fantasizing about the future is likely. Sharing these hopes and dreams with loved ones is a surefire way to strengthen your bond now. is Part of the Daily Insight Group ©2018

Your Weekly Love Horoscopes Beginning January 18th

Sarah Bartlett, Astrologer

The Astrology Room


With Venus now moving on into laid-back Aquarius, we should all be welcoming new romance if single, and just feeling the joys of love if attached.

However, with Jupiter’s cautious influence in Scorpio, it will come as no surprise that any suggestions of future commitment will be met with hesitation. Just make sure you stay light-hearted and ready for positive change in the weeks to come.



If single, it feels like there is a chapter closing, or maybe a new one beginning? If attached, maybe just a realisation that it’s time to welcome change, or evolve together rather than apart. This week, relationship wounds are dumped, but more importantly, you can free yourself from your attachment to those very injuries.



It’s a time when, if you don’t accept you need to rethink about the way you love, you will simply end up sabotaging your feelings. Similarly, you might deny your desire for someone, saying ‘no, of course I don’t feel that, who me?’ That ‘feeling’ is something you’ve got to now acknowledge and express.



Thanks to Venus moving into Aquarius, you have the charm factor, diplomatic skills and relationships are light-hearted and creative. This week your face in the mirror is more self-aware. If single, you draw intelligent characters into your life. In fact, you are natural, seductive, authoritative and balanced again.



If you can be less worried about staying in control of a romantic situation, and more open to what may be, you will discover better communication with someone too. On offer is sexual honesty, tolerance, space and acceptance of your differences. Try it all out and see how vitalising it can be.



Now no-one likes to be emotionally blackmailed. But there does seem to be someone who’s intent on profiting from your generous heart right now. This week, you really have no choice but to break free from the chains of those who are taking advantage, and show that you have the courage to be a little selfish too.



It’s time to stop telling yourself you’re not good enough to be loved. Also, give up on that distorted thinking where you pick out something negative about your admirer and dwell on it to the exclusion of anything else. Welcome the positive, and you welcome true love into your world.



You’re either falling in love with someone new or tangled up in a love knot. Of course, you might simply obey the ‘rules’ of the love game and play safe. But can you honestly say that you will ‘obey’ anyone apart from yourself? Do whatever it is you have to do your own way, but at least honour your independence.



It’s time to listen, appreciate and open your heart to what you truly want. If you are loving your partner because of their talents, then please remember that you have those gifts too. The planets simply confirm to you that it’s never too late to be as ambitious in love as you are for your future.



This week, you have every opportunity to achieve great personal happiness in any new venture.  But remember, there will be times when you feel like you’re having to battle a lover or partner to be heard. So enjoy a little light-hearted banter and some intriguing fun.



There’s really no choice but to open up about your true values. Consider whether you feel under some obligation from others, from your partner if attached, or if single, just from your own sense of self-doubt?  Knock them all, metaphorically, on the head, and get on and live.



A sudden realisation is that you’re about to embark on a course of romantic bliss. This week, you discover exactly the truth about your own feelings and someone else’s. So let love work its magic for you – it’s now or never to make a commitment to your happiness.



Admirers or partners are probably more worried about their own self-development than about any spiritual affinity with you right now. But behind any hard-edged ego is also another lonely child who has a soul like your own. This week you can start to make romantic tracks again towards the merger of true soul-mates.

David’s Daring Dating For The week Beginning January 19th (for the singles among us)

David Wells, Astrologer

The Astrology Room


ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)

Some people aren’t what you’d call enthusiastic and no amount of attention is going to change that Aries. It seems a shift of emphasis would be in order and you don’t have to look too far. A friend of a friend’s friend may be far enough! Get networking.


TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)

The combination of Jupiter and Mars has brought about some intense relationship vibes but are they the sort that bring you love or bring you more questions and even some choppy waters ahead? Question, keep questioning until the right answer comes along, or the right ‘one’.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)

If it’s all too much for you, why don’t you sit down, take a deep breath and get out the telephone, tablet or computer. Distract yourself. That’s way better than actually dealing with someone making those eyes. Not ready for romance? Seems it’s ready for you.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)

If you’re seeking some sort of in depth conversation, some traditional flirting perhaps, or maybe an introduction from their parents? You may be disappointed Cancer; new love appears to be less conventional than ever. And way more fun.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)

What you’re getting out of the chase is important, not so much this week but for next. You’ve got yourself centred, you can see who’s in the frame and confidence is high; that’s just what you need. But don’t go for it just yet. Next week could bring a change of heart. Pause.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)

An exchange between your relationship sky and your how you doin’ sky may not be encouraging what you’d call anything long-term. That would be an illusion. Someone you might think of as Mr or Ms Right Now, could reveal themselves as the rightiest of rights ever.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

With so much going on in your new love, true love sky you could be forgiven for getting your flirt on and sometimes getting over enthusiastic with the expected outcome. Dial it back a bit Libra, all in good time; no need to rush this one.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)

If Peter Piper could pick a peck of pickled pepper, what’s the time in Beijing? Hilarious! I would totally get that Scorps, I would laugh and reply with an equally stupid joke but then, I get you, really do. No response from some quarters though. Give it a week.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)

Mars, Lord of passion and enthusiastic responses is in your sign from Friday. Friday? Don’t worry, his magic starts early I am sure but it may rely on whether or not you’ve truly cut a chord from your past? By past I do mean an ex Sagittarius. Just Saying.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)

If losing Venus from your sign wasn’t bad enough the Sun is out from the top of this week, so no sunshiny new relationship for you? Not true. Saturn helps with a karmic show and tell, revealing someone with true potential. Do your slowly, slowly thing.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)

If you’re considering pointing Venus in the right direction you could start by getting clear on what you’re looking for? Truth is it works slightly differently Aquarius, by getting clear Venus activates her true love vibes and love comes to you. Start by knowing what you’re truly looking for.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)

Sending some extra vibes is your new love planet, the Moon. She’s with you until Monday and as she’s hooking up with Neptune this could be a very romantic start to your week. All you need now is someone to have it with. Get out. Please.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Friday, January 19th

Claire Petulengro, Astrologer

From The Astrology Room


ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
Be nice to all you meet today as power lies in the very faces you think can’t help you move forward. Someone you stopped talking to wants to make peace. Aspects suggest they may be too late. Are they Aries?

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
If you can express your soul, then the rest ceases to matter Taurus. Knowing how much is too much to ask of others is the key to you keeping friends in both your personal and professional life.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Don’t be afraid to go out on a limb Gemini. That’s where the fruit is! Things you had promised to do for close ones must be honoured if you are to avoid damaging the relationship you had built up.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Don’t be angry at close ones who have only tried their best in what has been a very tense time in both your lives. Showing support and understanding can tell you much about their back story you did not know.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Don’t do things which you know are going to aggravate a close one just to get a rise out of them. You and I know you’re better than that don’t we Leo! Maybe if you tried telling them what decision you want reversed, you’d both be happy.

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
Travel brings luck into your life and can prove that you were right to make the changes you did at the beginning of this year. Let’s be honest Virgo, you could not have stayed as things were anyway.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
Take your time when doing any jobs today, as rushing will be your undoing my friend. I know you’re angry that something didn’t work out earlier in the month, but trust me, it will be to your advantage.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
Work hard today Scorpio as those with the power and know-how will be watching you. Finding time to check in with family can put you at ease over something you were beginning to feel guilty about.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Try not to judge new faces too soon or you could miss out on forming an important new friendship and influence in your life. This rash mood is due to a phone call you have not received. So why don’t you make it?

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
Don’t be upset if others are upset by your work and your efforts today. Many of the signs are nit-picking and feeling irritable thanks to the pressure Mars has placed on our day to day lives.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
Paying attention to detail today can save you money and improve your reputation. You begin to see what good can come from taking your time when others comment on how impressed they are.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Many of the signs are feeling more fractious than usual. If someone tries to push you to do something you don’t want, stand up and say no. You don’t have to shout to be heard but you do have to find your voice to keep your self-respect.

If You Were Born Today, January 19th


You have a fabulous sense of humor, your own unique sense of style, and powerful emotions. Success-oriented, when you are able to focus on specific goals it would be hard to steer you from the path towards them. You are personally powerful and have a strong presence or aura, and others tend to follow your lead. You can be very stubborn at times! You are also very hard-working, caring, and kind to those you love. Although you don’t easily let down your guard, once you do trust, you are very protective.  Famous people born today: Edgar Allen Poe, Paul Cezanne, Janis Joplin, Dolly Parton, Robert Palmer.

Your Birthday Year Forecast:

Your birthday this year occurs shortly after a New Moon, suggesting a time of new beginnings and fresh energy. You are instinctively starting a new phase in your life. It’s time to give your life a makeover and to branch out into the untried.

This can be a year in which you experience important turning points, or you could begin new projects or goals that have a long-term impact on your life.

You crave and seek more freedom again this year, and how you deal with this issue makes all the difference as to the overriding themes of this period of your life. If you recognize your need for changes in key areas of your life and adapt accordingly, this can be an exciting year of discovery. However, if you resist change and insist on keeping things status quo, you are bound to feel very restless, tense, and rebellious. Either way, making healthy changes should be the focus instead of change just for the sake of change. Spontaneity, not impulsiveness, is the key to success this year. Fortunately, you have a lot of cosmic support for this.

Personal magnetism is tremendous this year. You are playfully competitive and might win a major competition, if applicable. This is a good period for creative projects and joining with others in pursuing a common goal.

You have enterprising spirit this year, attracting strong opportunities on both professional and personal levels. You are able to see the “big picture”, which helps you plan effectively. You have significantly more courage and gumption, making the year ahead a standout one in which you are ready to try new things and take on challenges.

Your ability to concentrate and focus is enhanced this year with Mercury conjunct Saturn in the Solar Return chart. This sometimes suggests a need for solitude when you work or a year in which you often retreat to work on specific tasks on your own. You might be required to travel for business purposes. It can also indicate that young people in your life are more mature or serious in their approach to life. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong.

You have a stronger than usual desire to improve and learn this year, with opportunities emerging to match. Optimism and confidence are with you, and you are able to attract fortunate circumstances into your life as a result. Problems are easier to resolve. Your social life will likely increase and bring you in contact with helpful people. Travel opportunities are likely. Pinnacle successes can occur during this period – for example, publishing an important project, graduating, marrying, having a child, getting a promotion, and so forth. Matters related to universities, higher education, organized religion, publishing, legal affairs, and foreign interests proceed smoothly. It’s a good time to seek out advanced training or to further your education. You are likely to enjoy good humor, optimism, and a larger perspective on matters that keeps you from getting lost in details or overly frustrated by everyday stresses and strains.

Some disruptions in your friendships and attachments are possible with Venus in hard aspect to Uranus in your Solar Return. Unusual attractions (to people and things) can have you acting on a whim. You may deal with freedom versus closeness issues in your relationships. This Uranian energy may play out on other levels related to socializing, spending, and pleasure. For example, vacation plans may go awry or agreements could be broken. Impulsive spending is something to watch for.

This can be a year in which you are bolder, more assertive, and energetic. You are especially interested in setting goals and challenges for yourself this year, and taking the necessary action to meet them. You may meet or interact with others who encourage or inspire you in some way to have more confidence in yourself.

You can feel as if you’re beginning a new chapter of your life this year as you start fresh on some significant level. Your passions and enthusiasm run high in the period ahead, and you find it natural to channel this extra energy constructively. This is an excellent year for enterprising endeavors and new interests, even if there is also a strong focus on the past. You’re drawn instinctively to certain projects that have long-term value. It can be an especially creative, tuned-in year for self-expression, not only verbally but through hobbies, games, or sports.

2018 is a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to pay special attention to practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

2019 will be a Number Five year for you. Ruled by Mercury. This is a year of discovery and freedom. It’s a time when exploration and reaching out to others brings opportunities. It’s a good time to advertise, promote, and sell. Surprises are in store, and the routine is broken for the better. This is a year when exciting relationships can be formed; or, if you are already in a partnership, new life is breathed into the relationship. Advice – explore, look for adventure, keep your eyes open for opportunities, diversify, mingle.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Saturday, January 20th

Claire Petulengrom Astrologer

The Astrology Room


ARIES (March 21st-April 20th)
The first two rules of personal growth are: 1/ it will be difficult, 2/ it will be worthwhile. Keep this in mind when facing opposition today. It’s how you will keep going when those around you fall.

TAURUS (April 21st-May 21st)
Don’t be too quick to turn down doing something which is out of the norm or which tests your limitations. You have been living life by others’ rules for far too long now and it’s time to recognise your own needs.

GEMINI (May 22nd-June 21st)
Others will be calling on you to do favours for them. Know what you will and won’t do before you start Gemini, or you could end up getting pressured into things you will regret. Ring now to hear how overseas is calling for you.

CANCER (June 22nd-July 23rd)
Don’t be surprised if you find it hard to get hold of those you want to talk to. Saturn is not feeling at his most friendly, so you may end up having to do what was promised yourself.

LEO (July 24th-August 23rd)
Think before you speak today, or you could end up revealing secrets which will destroy the lives of others. Why not try putting this excess energy into working through those mixed up feelings?

VIRGO (August 24th-September 23rd)
A new flirtation leaves you feeling confused and bewildered. A sign such as you was never going to only have one person interested in them. Just remember you are the one who has control so don’t feel pressured.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)
The need to see someone you miss could see you telling a white lie in order to find the time you need. Don’t over explain as your honest nature could be giving away more than you realise.

SCORPIO (October 24th-November 22nd)
New ideas get you excited and that ‘lull’ you were in begins to feel like a thing of the past. You now have eyes firmly forward on the future (and not a moment too soon!) Someone close is ready to make amends too.

SAGITTARIUS (November 23rd-December 21st)
Showing tenderness to loved ones today will help them move on from the difficult air which stilted the weekends progress. Events you are invited to at this time are an indication of someone’s acceptance towards you.

CAPRICORN (December 22nd-January 20th)
You will feel like cancelling plans but don’t! Sticking to what you’d planned is the key to you feeling like the old you again. I know recent events shocked and unnerved you. But they won’t from today.

AQUARIUS (January 21st-February 19th)
A word to the wise Aquarius. Don’t go discussing other people’s lives if you don’t want your own on display for all to see. There is a jealous air in your chart which needs dispelling before this weekend is over.

PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Try to have patience with those who have done wrong. There are many signs in the zodiac who are displaying extreme tendencies at the moment and you would be wise to offer them more time to acclimatise to what’s acceptable.


Your 2018 Horoscope: On the Edge of Greatness

Your 2018 horoscope reveals what’s waiting for you in the new year

 By Maria DeSimone

Without a doubt, 2018 will be a year to get down to business. A series of planetary switch-ups allows for notable support in practical matters. You’ll build foundations in your life by trusting your instincts. You’ll also seek out an innovative approach to your finances — all with great potential for success.

Back on October 10 of 2017, Jupiter, the planet of possibilities, began swimming in the emotional depths of Scorpio, and remains in this sign until November 8, 2018. With Jupiter moving swiftly through Scorpio as the year begins, you’re already feeling quite comfortable with profound, intimate, emotional exchanges in your relationships. You’ll continue to feel blessed when you explore hidden terrain, since you’ll likely find buried treasure that will help you grow spiritually, psychologically, and physically.

Your personal powers are strong

2018 will be a year of heightened intuition, so if you’ve wanted to cultivate your psychic gift, the universe is offering to be your mentor. Pay close attention to May 25 and August 19 when Jupiter will be at a perfect trine to Neptune. Faith, intuition, and luck are your perfect trifecta around these dates.

Jupiter and Pluto will also work together well this year — a stark contrast to the power struggle they engaged in during 2017. On January 15, April 14, and September 12, these planets will help you remember that you had the power within you all along. More importantly, this planetary connection will encourage you to use it in a way that strengthens you and those in your circle. Business and financial ventures will be favored.

On November 8 Jupiter enters Sagittarius, the sign Jupiter naturally rules. This will be an auspicious time when you notice greater success and support in any endeavor that opens your mind. It’ll be time to explore new horizons!

Building foundations for the future

While Jupiter encourages us to grow through expansive opportunities, Saturn, his counterpart, demands that we grow through patience, discipline, and hard work. On December 19, 2017, Saturn moved into Capricorn, the sign he naturally rules. Until 2020 we’ll have dominating lessons about building solid foundations that will serve and protect us through any storm. As the New Year begins, we’re still getting used to the subtle but profound difference Saturn makes when he moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.

Consequently, in 2018 you’ll know that it’s time to approach your life and responsibilities with a plan. Fortunately, you probably feel ready, willing, and able to do so. As long as you come to the cosmic workplace on time each morning ready to do the work necessary, Saturn in Capricorn will help you build a structure in a certain area of your life that you’ll be able to rely on for the long haul.

Revolutions and revelations

Later this year, expect a material revolution to begin. From May 15 to November 6, Uranus, the planet of innovation and sudden change, will give us a hint of what he can do when in the practical, financially-oriented sign of Taurus. Expect a shift in the financial market — especially anything that has to do with technology and science. On a personal level, how you maintain physical and material security is likely to change. You can choose to reinvent yourself in these areas or you can resist. If you fight it, though, you’ll only feel more rattled and ultimately left behind when the rest of the world moves into more progressive terrain. Lastly, Mars and Venus will both retrograde in 2018, making certain times tricky to successfully negotiate new business ventures and romantic endeavors. Avoid launching anything new from both June 26 – August 27 while Mars is retrograde, and October 5 – November 16 when Venus retrograde.

Remember, success in life is most supported when we swim with — and not against — the tides. Why create unnecessary strain? Don’t work in contradiction with planetary cycles. Instead, let them work for you. is Part of the Daily Insight Group ©2018

2018 Year of the Dog Horoscopes

See what the Year of the Brown Earth Dog has waiting for you

Loyal, rule-abiding, and cautious, the Year of the Brown Earth Dog is one that rewards pragmatism and discourages selfishness. During this Year of the Dog (starting February 16, 2018, and ending February 4, 2019), it’s time to create secure foundations, even if this requires scrimping and saving. Working collectively will pay off handsomely in 2018. Dogs are pack animals and feel more comfortable when operating as part of a team. “All for one, and one for all” is the motto of Dog years. It will be much easier to attain objectives when acting as a group now, rather than operating as an individual.

Businesses that involve serving others will fare well during the Brown Earth Dog Year. Unions are strongly advised to lobby for raises, increased benefits, and more vacation time in 2018. Police officers, firefighters, teachers, hospital attendants, utility workers, and civic workers can benefit from collective bargaining this year.

Because Dogs are anxious creatures, it’s important to guard against being overwhelmed during 2018. World events can feel oppressive and burdensome. Having a physical outlet for frustration is critical this year; daily exercise is an essential component to the Dog’s health. Hitting the gym regularly should make it easy to avoid infectious illnesses like colds, coughs, and flus. As far as mental health is concerned, Dogs are social creatures who require convivial companionship to stay in top form. Connect with friends as often as possible.

The Year of the Dog emphasizes morality and idealism. Cynical attitudes can create setbacks in 2018. It’s best to strive for the greatest good for the largest amount of people during a Dog year. The need for increased security is another theme this year. This is a great time to upgrade your alarm system, passwords, and firewalls. Take extra care reviewing financial statements for fraud. Above all, keep precious possessions under lock and key. By channeling the protective power of the watchful Dog, you can avoid stressful losses.

Because it is a Brown Earth Year, 2018 will be a time of stability, organization, and persistence. Over-the-top fashions will be replaced by utilitarian looks. Wash-and-wear fabrics, looks that easily flow from day to night, and versatile staples will dominate fashion runways. Extravagant displays of wealth will give way to frugality. Eateries that specialize in home cooking will perform better than gourmet restaurants. In terms of culture, stories about common folk will fare better than ones about superheroes. The Year of the Brown Earth Dog urges us to stay grounded, contented, and connected.
