(Correct Predictions are highlighted within the paragraphs)
As everyone prepares to shuffle family and financial states, the world as we had known it has dramatically changed. I began writing this blog when the tax reform in the United States was passed and on its way to the President of one of the most powerful nations in the world. Then I thought to myself, something must change and began analyzing the VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories) to look at profound changes.
I feel that music is a part of our souls, and words have a deepest impact. Therefore, before beginning to read this predictive blog, take the time to exhale to listen to “We are here” – by Alicia Keys. The lyrics are written in such a way that all will make sense.
We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
That’s why we are here, why we are here
We are here
Bombs over Baghdad, tryna get something we ain’t never had
Let’s start with a good dad
So real but it’s so sad
And while we burnin’ this incense, we gon’ pray for the innocent
‘Cause right now it don’t make sense
Right now it don’t make sense
Let’s talk about Chi town
Let’s talk about Gaza
Let’s talk about, let’s talk about Israel
‘Cause right now it is real
Let’s talk about, let’s talk Nigeria
In a mass hysteria, yeah
Our souls are brought together so that we could love each other
We are here
We are here for all of us
We are here for all of us
That’s why we are here, why we are here
We are here

VPAT heavily relies on the concept of numerology and philosophical theories. As we move past 2017 which is considered “1”, often referred to as an innovation or a new start, we now move in the year numerated as “2”. Depending upon the circumstances and when the country became independent the numerological inferences would change. However, since I am scoping the overall emphasis I will focus upon the year as a marker.
January 1, 2018, falls on a Monday, and usually Mondays is a start of a new week. In the same respect, 2018 will be broken down as 20=2, 1+8 = 9 therefore, 2+9 =11= (1+1) = 2. The best thing that can happen to many of us is to embrace this year, no matter how difficult it may become. Number 2 is a representation of Chandra which is the moon and is usually considered a representation of Cancer. Every characteristic of Cancer will place itself in this year’s drama or resolutions.
I feel that 2018 will bring people together more so than ever before. As the catastrophes of 2017 brought neighbors and families together to build something profound, I believe individual mindsets may change into more compassionate and understanding states. There will be more creativity, so expect news about paintings, artists, beautiful homes etc. in the news. Innovations and intellectual processes will also be in high demand ( Falcon Heavy rocket was mostly a success for SpaceX, Iphone X). There could be a more soft-spoken nature and possibly very emotional periods.
On the other hand, there are falsities, or we may hear a lot about addiction of all kinds (Opioids: Nation Under Siege). Many may be bored with their work if it does not continue to excite them. People will be influenced by the moon, therefore their concentration may go from one thing to another in the spur of a moment and lack in confidence at times. But because of the sympathetic nature, many of us may become very sensitive to world in deprivation.
While the people of the world watch the leaders, I would not be surprised that devastation by natural disasters and war continue. The immaturity of leaders to gain power and show who is more powerful than the other (United States & North Korea) will only bring many people together. But peace can only occur when we notice how blind we may have been.
Due to the eclipses in Aquarius and Leo, the early Spring could very well trigger another natural disaster. Such a disaster can only be a warning for humanity not to take nature for granted and that not everything should be built upon. But when that does not work, it becomes quite possible that mother nature may blow her top (Mayon volcano on January 31st 2018) . Along with earth shaking (Gulf of Alaska January 23, 2018, Hualien, Taiwan Feb 06, 2018), as it did in 1991 and 2006, it would not surprise me if we continue to hear about flooding waters (Argentina & Paris Floods: January & February 2018), wind (Bomb Cyclone January 2018), or fire damage as we move through 2018; and all because not everyone agrees on global warming.
But there is a reason for most of this, whether you choose to believe or not. VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theories) has stood to be correct for may predictions. I have been talking intensely about Rahu’s placement in Cancer. As the U.S is a Cancer country this would bring about unexpected events that shake the very core of a person’s life(Valentines Day Shooting in Florida). It could cause mental or physical illnesses or possibly influence unexpected events in one’s life like uprooting a home or other displacement (Flu epidemic).
Additionally, due to Ketu, the chaos and upheaval (including natural disasters) is all about paying back past Karma. This is to bring many people to the point of understanding that the spiritual way of living is always through humility and peaceful conversation – that power, greed and manipulation does not always work in a spiritual world. There is an old saying there is always a light at the end of the tunnel.
With Saturn in Sagittarius, according to VPAT, this is about difficult but revealing lessons. Sagittarius’ tendency is to move forward only if it is truthful and righteous, anything in between will not count. It is also about legal issues, values, ethics, norms and expectations. Some things that were once hidden (Scorpio) are now being revealed and people will have a voice (Me too movement). There is nothing that can be done except to take full responsibility for our own Karma and the foundations which we may have once known will change, usually for the better (Weinstein, Lower, Cosby, Porter). All we can possibly do is thank our lucky stars as Jupiter in Libra brings support and balance through the scales of justice.
With the two eclipses in Aquarius and Leo, along with the standalone Cancerian eclipse, innovation, financial adjustments, and corporate taxes could bring about new jobs with domestic and international relief to many people, though it may not seem that way in the beginning of the year as change is difficult for anyone. However, the time will come to search even deeper for the truth between March and October 2018, when the truth as we knew it will bring eye openers to many.
Consequently, as I had stated before, this year represents “2” which is in partnership and collaboration; at the same time, it is about juggling finances, time with family, and getting things done in a timely fashion by juggling and re-adjusting priorities. As this is a generalization, not everyone will feel the same affects and all we can really do is look at each month and seize the day. I would also suggest you contact an astrologer that you feel comfortable with, either Western or Progressive, and see how things pan out. However, what I give to you is a basic VPAT of trends which could impact your environment so that you are aware of them and are able to make modifications.
Changes are exactly what is going to be in sync in January 2018. As the whole world is still on slow speed due to Mercury ghost period, hopefully we can all transition to a completely different prospective. However, the cosmos has something different in mind for humanity.
In 2018, the skies will be twinkling every now and then, we will have one super moon, one micro full moon, and two micro new moons. Additionally, we will have two blue moons, one black moon, and one red moon. During the twinkling, there may even be times when our skies will light up with at least 10 meteor showers; a sight everyone should try to see. In the mix of all the twinkles and fires in the sky, the planets will also mix and mingle.
Saturn will continue its journey through Sagittarius on and off until 2020, therefore causing radical changes in infrastructure and justice. Jupiter will stay in Libra until the Fall but many will still feel this up to 2019. Moving into Scorpio in the Fall, Pluto will remain in Capricorn for another 2-3 years; therefore, our structures may still be in the dark for a while. Neptune is also going to continue to remain in Pisces, and this is all because it takes 13-14 years to move through each planet and its journey only began in 2013. Uranus will continue to remain in Aries on and off until 2019; therefore, many unexpected power-driven changes will also occur. Rahu and Ketu will also continue their journey to look at past life karma and unexpected issues until 2019.
You may say to yourself by now, “How does this affect me?” or “It all sounds so dim.” But rest assured that for every negative in our lives there is always light at the end of the tunnel and every month there will be a reason for a season, as we will continue to start waking up on December 31, 2017.
As we begin 2018 we will awaken by the light of the biggest and the brightest Super moon. But this super moon may be a little emotional as it rests in 11 degrees in Cancer. However, we are still not fully awake as the Mercury energy (according to VPAT) continues to make many of us still a little sluggish. Nevertheless, if you are not fully awake by the super full moon, then you sure will be by Uranus going direct. As I say, “Brace yourself as we are going for a very bumpy ride!” Uranus is known to cause disruptive events, usually unexpected, that shake us to our foundation. But when it is retrograding it becomes a little quiet. Hence, on January 2, 2018, Uranus will be moving direct and will remain direct for the next 7-8 months. Weather, politics, money, and power are all scopes of Uranus; something is bound to stir up. Thus, the cosmos will also let you know it is a little stirred by the first meteor shower. Many will not be able to see it because of the full moon but there will be many more opportunities later.
By the 11th of January things will begin to get a little quiet and start to move as Mercury will have already begun to move quickly ahead, preparing us for our first super new moon and our first blue moon of 2018 in Capricorn. But our friend, sky, has Aquarius written all over it when Venus and the Sun dances in Aquarius January 17 through 19th. This movement will be topped off with the first micro new moon on January 16, 2018. But Mars in Sagittarius on the 26th will make sure everyone is treated fairly, as it is just in time for our first total lunar eclipse and blue moon, which will also be a micro moon. This eclipse is paired with the eclipses we had during the Spring of 2017.
One of the most beautiful aspects of this eclipse is that it is exactly at the same degree and date as the one on Jan 31, 1999. This usually means same related issues will be brought up again either to re-establish, repair or renovate. Once again, the eclipse will be retransforming the Western world as it did in the Spring. However, the issues at hand could be related to the issues of family structures. But, because it is a full moon and the eclipse, I would not be surprised if issues of weather patterns, water, floods, or even fire become the news of the media (Thomas Fire CA, MudFlows Southern California, North American Cold Wave). By now people are ready to scream revolution. Do not be surprised if the heavens hear the cries of humanity and it is portrayed in the color of the moon which could be red.
The last time the moon was red was in 2015 and there was a big fiasco about the return of Christ and bloodshed. I am not saying that theory is incorrect however, not much happened and therefore all one can predict is that the heavens will be hearing us; but in silence, as the moon transit takes some time and the skies will be pitch black in February with no moon light. Thus, without light humanity becomes cold and chaotic.
February begins with loving Venus in Pisces/Aquarius on the 7th of February. Perhaps love will be friendly and dreamy. Don’t believe everything you see, touch, or even kiss as Neptune makes everyone feel as if they are in love and that the person is perfect. However, hold on tight as we move right into darkness. The VPAT theories predict an anomaly, by theory Feb 15, 2018 eclipse will be a black moon as there are no new moons in 33.3 days. The eclipse in Aquarius once again heads us right back to the past. I have always said the past repeats itself to make sure we have our i’s dotted and t’s crossed. The eclipse at 27 degrees in Aquarius is the exact replica of events that were being addressed when it was as the same exact degree and same sign on February 16, 1999. Which means – here we go again, with Mercury and Venus in Pisces communications may be very emotional and it’s time to look at the past.
Both January and February eclipses are exact replicas of 1999 eclipses, which tempted me to explore even further what we are up against. In January 1999, President Clinton’s trial of impeachment began, weather patterns were horrendous due to snow storms, and the largest drug bust in Texas seized the day. In February president Clinton was impeached but it was overturned by the Senate by asking for a pardon, and February 1999 saw the largest number of deaths in modern history. We are here again, perhaps more information will be discovered whereas, a president could possibly have the impeachment process completed?
The healing words of Mercury and the sun in Pisces, with little help from Neptune, once again could be swept under the rug as we begin March. On the 1st, the full moon in Virgo will make sure we are awake and working; however, within a week’s span two major planets will begin their retrograde phase. One will get a bad rap and the other will be glorified.
In VPAT nothing really retrogrades; rather, it slows down or opens our eyes. On March 5, 2018, Jupiter in Libra will be retrograding which is not a bad thing. This will be a time of happiness, but only in areas of your life that are important. There could even be a chance of unexpected travel, growth, and a possible new relationship. The positives depend upon how humble you really are. If the intent of the prosperity is materialistic, deceiving, or impractical then the universe will make you wait even longer.
On the same day, Mercury will begin its ghost period to retrograde in Aries. Expect misunderstanding, disagreements, and aggressiveness in all issues of life, including politics and finances. This phase will continue to cause major chaos in our lives all the way until the beginning of May 2018. With the new moon in Pisces March 17. 2018 smack in the middle of all the craziness, perhaps we have a new beginning to spirituality and learn to be at peace again. Perhaps this is just what we need when the Spring Equinox wakes us all up to the birds of Spring on March 20, 2018. Added to that, we are to be gifted even more when Venus enters Taurus where she belongs and it will be all about principle of pleasure. Ending March with a full moon in Libra, which is also a blue moon, usually means if it does not please you then it will go away.
Whenever things start to break down or cause a collision, humanity must stop and look. Think of April like an accident on the highway. Everyone must look and it slows down everything for everyone. The beginning of April will start to feel better as Mercury stations direct on the 15th and rest of the road is on neutral. Rest assured that just because Mercury is stationing direct that doesn’t mean everything else is going to be perfect. I don’t believe in perfection because it is always a personal perception.
The New moon in Aries will trigger things to move forward on the 15th, yet only for a few moments. The slow motion of planets, like a car without gas, is slowly approaching. April 17th through mid-July will see be 3 planets retrograding. I mentioned earlier that Jupiter Retrograde is a good thing, until July 20, 2018.
On April 17 Saturn is retrograding until mid-September. VPAT theories state that Saturn will continue to be in Sagittarius on and off until 2020, therefore, Saturn in Sagittarius will bring limitations where many of us may feel we are not getting the recognition we deserve, and the richer are getting richer and poorer even poorer. Not only that, but it is time to pay the piper. Saturn is the teacher of Karma, and Karma could bite. It could also hurt all the way until Autumn. Five days later, Pluto will also be retrograding which will show many of us who, or what, needs to change and how it affects each one of us individually. Thus, meteor showers, clarifying the direction of humanity, will be followed by the full moon which will light the sky to our biggest change since 2012.
By May 5, 2018, it will be full steam ahead and communication will go back to normal. That is exactly what we need, in time for Mother’s Day on May 13, 2018. Perhaps this would be the best thing to happen since 2012.
On the day of the New moon, May 15, 2018, Uranus, the planet of unexpected and insurgency, enters Taurus for the first time in 80 years. The last time this magnificent planet entered Taurus, our world was not the same; it was the time of the Wall Street crash, the great financial depression, and World War II. This difficult time is negative or positive depending upon how one handles it during the 8 years of its existence. But following this, money pours in like a water faucet. Uranus in Taurus is not all that bad as it brings positive resolutions in areas of money and financial sectors. I do believe that we have all learned from the past that something must change. The full moon in May will make sure it does with the bright light waking us all up in the summer; following the light of justice and fairness across the board.
From the chaos of Winter and Spring, June seems like a breeze. Some of us will open our eyes, becoming very emotional when Mercury enters Cancer and the New moon Gemini on the 13th graces us. This month, Mars and Neptune will once again be retrograding. As I stated before, not all planets when they are in retrograde can be bad. Mars rules men as well as action. Anything one does abruptly, without thinking it through, and without a backup plan will surely fail. This is the time to work on projects that were placed on hold and making them successful.
We will also get a little help from Neptune as it goes retrograde. We even may feel drunk. Now is the time for a truthful look at yourself; get real as you examine your actions. In what ways do you let feelings damage your relationships? Freshen up your demeanor. Maintain simplicity of your emotions, do not be insincere to yourself and your soul, it is not fair to you. This will be very clearly said by the universe when it ends the month with a Full moon in Capricorn where practicality will be at the forefront of changes.
As you know, there is never a dull moment in the cosmos and the universe will never let us rest for too long. Maybe this time it will, or will it? The see saw of ups and downs will begin in July with its own healing efforts when Chiron, the wounded healer, goes retrograde. This is also not bad as we will have about 6 months to go through a beautiful healing. It is time look your deepest spiritual pain in the face.
During the Chiron retrograde, it is the best gift given to humanity to deal with the past and move forward into the future. Perhaps the best gift possible will arrive after Independence Day in the Americas. Then, from out of nowhere things will start to go in slow motion again when the universe wants us to rethink the last 90 days. It’s done very covertly when Mercury begins its ghost period in Cancer and ends in Virgo on July 7, continuing until September 5, 2018. Hence, at least Jupiter is direct and ready to work for those air signs again. We may not realize it now, but we will need Chiron, Jupiter, and Mercury as we move into back to back eclipses.
The first solar eclipse in the summer will begin in Cancer on July 12, 2018. Possibly reverting to the issues of July 2010. Hence, it is a new moon which could only mean we start something new and open our eyes. Then the universe will let us breathe and enjoy the beautiful sun in Leo – Leo’s and the sun are like two peas in a pod. Mercury will be moving through Leo and slowing down all fire signs(Leo, Aries, Sagittarius) on July 25, 2018. As we all sit still for a while, the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius will surely wake us all up on July 26-27, 2018.
The issues of July 1991 will be tossed and new issues could be in place; but once again we must be careful as floods and weather patterns are on the horizon. As the past has repeated itself, we could see the season of Tropical Storm Anna and Hurricane Bob all over again – will we have the infrastructure now to withstand it? One of the best things that could happen is to Aquarius, with no more eclipses until 2026. I now give you permission to dance with an invisible partner.
With the chaos of July behind us, we are ready to move forward into August. It is hard to do, but when Venus is in Libra, love is everywhere. Yet, universe is finally giving a break when Uranus, which is in Taurus, goes backwards on August 1 and will stay there until January 2019 (Can you say thank God!). I am sure many of you will hear about the Grand Trine in Earth signs by many Western Astrologers. However, the moons, nor the planets, are the same; therefore, I leave the great constellation for those that are experts in that field.
Now we come to our final eclipse on August 11, 2018 at 18 degrees in Leo, but this time it will share the issues of 1999. I would not be surprised if political issues of 1999 get reformed. Hence, something could come to a screeching halt and weather patterns could mess up again. A little more than a week later, Mercury will begin to move direct and Jupiter will trine Neptune. What a way to have a mid-summer! Ending the month with a full moon in Pisces will bring forth the ending of one state of emotions and psyche, and bring another.
By the time 2nd and 3rd of September the shadow of Mercury is all clear and everything is full steam ahead, except for those who are Sagittarius. Saturn now goes direct and hard work is ahead. The strangest situation is when Venus enters the passionate Scorpio, the new moon is in Virgo, and Mars enters Aquarius one day later. What is all this mumbo jumbo?
Basically, this is fun loving masculine energy which is hard working and chasing beauty. Only time can tell how this will pan out, but we do know that the Full moon will bring natural endings in September and Chiron begins its journey retrograde in Pisces.
This may be one of the quietest months of 2018. The new moon in Libra will bring a new way to love money and love. Mercury (talking and communicating) becomes very secretive again when it enters Scorpio. The full moon in Taurus on October 24, 2018 will once again end things for those early born Scorpio and a few days later we will stomp our feet again.
Unlike most retrograde periods this year, we have four Mercury retrogrades with the next beginning in Scorpio around the 25-27 of October, and it will not end its journey again until Christmas Eve 2018. Does this look a little familiar?
Uranus is back in Aries, double checking to make sure that everything is ok on the home front, while Jupiter tries to make everyone happy. The new moon in Scorpio will surely bring some exciting things on November 7, 2018; however, not only is the new moon in Scorpio, but Jupiter is entering Scorpio the very next day. All systems will not be moving forward at the same time as Mercury will be stationed at the most horrible time.
On November 16, 2017, Mercury will be in the red zone while the Full moon in Gemini on the 23rd wants to talk. So, a gag order for Gemini. Hmm, that sounds very interesting. Possibly we are drunk again? Not seeing everything, as Neptune is now direct making everything so groovy.
As we are walking like we are on cloud 9 gaging Gemini’s, Mercury will begin to go direct and be in station on December 6. The following day, the New moon in Sagittarius will bring justice and fairness to all; not without emotions though. The full moon in Cancer will make everyone very emotional and Mercury starts to straighten out on Christmas eve. The cosmos will end the year with Mars in Aries which could cause some anger and resentment issues, and all I can hope for is peace by December 31, 2018.
As I conclude my blog for 2018, I will continue to add my predictions months in advance, because sometimes they don’t all come at the same time. As far as I can see, there will be ups and downs on the political front, financial worries, juggling finances and family, political upheaval, lies, deception, and that little voice in your head that tells you … that’s a LIE! On the other hand, so much collaboration with neighbors and families that collective thinking will be the name of the game.
The information which I have brought to you is a VPAT general tendency. It is not Astrology, or Numerology. These are predictions based upon the visions, theoretical prospective, and my sixth sense. To find out how 2018 will be for you personally, I would suggest you contact any of my recommend astrologers and make an appointment.
For now, … “Hold on…… this is going to be a very bumpy ride….”
