Libra Forecast for 2018: Work & Business
You have the best of both worlds on the professional front this year, with some real advantages on the work and career fronts but in both cases with little effort required in return. Neptune, who has been in your work sector since 2012, is having a stunning year without doing anything more than he has already been doing. Neptune, the planet of dreams and fantasies is charged with fuelling your dreams and daring you to imagine. However, it is more what is happening around Neptune this is set to make this such a good year for work and job matters and especially for following your dreams. The most obvious advantage is that you not only move into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your income sector but until the 29th January, Mars as well. With Jupiter in your income sector until the 9th November, they will work in tandem all year as the planets of luck and dreams, creating the potential for a stunning year on both fronts. Another reason why work and job matters are likely to fly this year is that Chiron will be gone for much of the year. Chiron has been in your work sector since 2010 and as the wounded healer and gatekeeper to old professional demons, this has made it hard to move on. With Chiron gone from the 17th April to the 26th September and then leaving for good next February, this will clear the way for your dreams to fly.
Those dreams will have plenty of support when the Sun, Mercury and Venus move through your work sector. This is a relatively short period, starting with Venus’ return on the 11th February and ending with the Sun’s departure on the 21st March. However, that is more than enough time to jumpstart things. Apart from a Full Moon in your career sector on the 2nd January, there is no planetary activity on the career front until Venus returns on the 20th May. This is much earlier in the year than things normally start to move, with the Sun not moving through until the 21st June to the 23rd July, as he does at that time every year. With Venus here until the 14th June and Mercury from the 13th June to the 29th June, they will each play their part and pass the baton onto the next planet. This is nothing out of the ordinary, but with Neptune in a good place on the work front and Jupiter in your income sector, the whole period from the 20th May to the 23rd July will be an auspicious period for income, work and career matters. This will end with just one sign that something fateful lies ahead. That sign is a solar eclipse on the 13th July. As well as creating the potential for major new beginnings, an eclipse can only fall close to the lunar nodes. This is the first clue that the North Node is drawing close to its return on the 7th November, where it will stay until May 2020. This brings the potential for fateful new beginning during 2019 and 2020, which is even more good news for Neptune on the job front.
