Involuntary Passage: Magenta Lunar Eclipse January 2018

Total Lunar Eclipse

Super Blue Full moon

Super Red Full moon

Super Full Moon in Leo

January 31, 2018


By Maharani Rutan©

Many of our lives are contingent upon the lessons of the past. Our characters are built upon our mistakes as well as our achievements. Once again, we are reminded that almost all of history must repeat itself to ensure that we have learned what we needed to learn to move to the next phase.

In only the first month of 2018 we have cried, mourned, been devastated, and fought for equality. We have watched leaders make fools of themselves while we scratched our heads with the question of “why.” Now, by the end of the month we question the very essence of family structure and what we call security; but most of all, we question how the lessons of the past affect us. These answers will not come to us overnight, rather, they may take several months to reveal themselves. I believe they will gradually come to us so that we can make sense of it all.

Some of the most positive aspects of January 2018, have been the beautiful Super full moon in Cancer and Micro New moon in Capricorn. Perhaps, planetary, our perception and emotions may have been tugged but the sky was beautiful to see.

January 31, 2018, will be one of those rare moments when the full moon will be described as a blue moon, one of only two that we will have in 2018. The phrase was coined by astronomers as “once in a blue moon”, meaning that only once in a blue moon do two full moons happen in a calendar month. But the rarity is that the second blue moon will be in the spring, and once again the past will repeat itself in 2037 when there will be exactly two blue moons in a year to repeat – January and March.

What I like about this moon is that this is the first time in a long time it is not only s blue moon, but it is also a red moon and a super moon. What a grand scale! We just passed our first super moon on January 23, 2018, and we are glorified again. We must enjoy this scenery as this type of aspect will not occur for at least 12 years, with the last occurrence being well over 130 years ago.

Scientifically, the total lunar eclipse occurs when three planets, the sun, moon, and earth form a straight line. Thus, any sunlight that is caste upon the earth is impassable to the moon. Because the density of Sun is much larger than the earth, the sun’s ray casts Earth’s shadow on the moon and it covers the moon entirely; often giving it a red luminosity.

Another uniqueness of this moon is that there will be NO FULL Moons in February. Therefore, some have adopted the January 31, 2018 Super Red-Blood moon to be renamed the “Snow Moon” as it is anticipated those in the northern hemisphere will have a very cold and possibly snowy February. Equally, in the southern hemisphere it is named correctly as the Red moon. This seems simple enough; blue representing the snow and cool weather, and red representing the light, enough for barley to grow. But its something even more special about this moon, which is also the day of our first eclipse in 2018.

The total lunar eclipse on January 31, 2018, will be visible in North America, the Pacific Ocean, Asia, and Australia. Its duration will be 1 hour and 16 minutes as it completes its cycle. The shadow of the sun will begin to cover the earth through the Penumbral Eclipse on the 31st at 5:51am EST and 10:51 UTC which can be seen by the eastern coast lines of the U.S and Canada. While the moon becomes full it begins its alignment with the Earth through its Partial Eclipse at 6:48am EST and 11:48 UTC. Though the total eclipse will not be seen by the North America’s, it will begin as the moon becomes fuller at 7:51am EST and 12:51 UTC. The moon will be completely full due to the super moon effect at 8:28am EST, 5:28 PST and 13:29 UTC; it will also be the maximum eclipse. The full eclipse will end at 9:07 EST and 14:07 UTC, thus within a half-hour or so, the magnificent cosmos show will wind down. The partial eclipse will end at 10:11 am EST and 15:11 UTC and will go back to original form at 11;08 PST and 16:08 UTC. This entire process could make it seem that the moon is red; however, it will depend upon the orbit’s degree.

Now that we have discussed the scientific gravitational degrees of the eclipse, it is time to analyze how this scenario relates to our past. I can say with certainty that this eclipse is at the exact degree, and sign, as the eclipse on January 31, 1991. Like the saying goes “Back to the Future”. As much as I would like to concentrate on other countries and pop cultures, I believe that more drama has been going on in some very specific nations i.e., U.S, Russia, and Korea, than any other countries, therefore, my top focus is going to be on these countries. It’s imperative that before the discussion of history is evaluated, the polarity is imperative to bring a connection between the past and the present.

In January 1991, the first African American woman was elected as Mayor of Washington D.C. (Sharon Pratt Dixon), and in January 2018 the first transgender person is seated in the Virginia House of Delegates (Danica Roem). January 1991 sees air strikes in Iraq, while in January 2018 air strikes continue in Somalia. January 2011, Eastern Airlines files bankruptcy but continues to operate for two more years, and in January 2018, Toys-R-US & Sears file for bankruptcy – could they operate for two more years? January 2011, President Bush appoints staff who retire or resigns, and in January 2018 President Trump appoints staff that resigns or are fired. Jan 7, 1991, Saddam Hussein prepares his military to wage a war against the U.S, and in January 2018, North Korea’s Kim John Un prepares to wage a war against the U.S. January 1991, Hurricane Hugo is linked to 61 deaths, while January 2018, mudslides and snow storms are linked to 60 deaths. There are many more polarities but the question is, what are we to learn from these coincidences? The answers are not available to us right away, rather, we must wait until the eclipses through Aquarius/Leo axis is complete.

The journey of the Leo eclipse will not end, at least until January 2019. What we will learn will be the things that are most intimate for us; which is the structure of society, leadership, security, and protection.

The first question of our structure was answered when our eyes were forced opened by the Lunar eclipse in February 10, 2017. “The only way this can happen is to alter separate ego centrism from ‘I’ thinkers to ‘We’ the people”. The first lunar eclipse of 2018 will do just that; opening our eyes while we hear the “Lions roar.”

The second question of leadership was answered in the past six months as we questioned the leadership during the fall eclipse on August 21, 2017 and on wards. “This could cause many leaders to take things out of context, being overly melodramatic or defensive, and could even have shortage of self-control and ethical reliability.” Read more here

The third question is one of security, which can be in the form of employment, taxes, finances, or anything to do with security of living and well being. All these answers will be provided for us in the next six months. We will be made to either rethink our budget or rethink what we need to do to secure ourselves.

As a VPAT (Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Theory) reader, I must observe and respect the Vedic rituals such as Chandra Grahan (literal meaning: stealing of the moon aka lunar eclipse). This eclipse is very unusual certain rituals must be done before sundown and after. To simply put it, if the eclipse is visible in your city you should observe ultimate sacrifice (half fast day) if not, then you may not have to. However, to be on the safe side it should be observed as weather conditions do not account for the visibility. Furthermore, not only is this eclipse going to be politically driven, but it will also be relationship oriented as the full moon always brings endings and new beginnings.
Because this is a super full moon eclipse I suspect the effects of this eclipse will be felt as early as the 21st of January and will continue outwards until the eclipse in August 2018. However, keep in mind that the predisposition of eclipses is based upon VPAT which states that the Lunar eclipse is in Cancer, not Leo. Additionally, Rahu and Ketu are in Capricorn and Cancer, which means these people are going to have a difficult time sleeping or are going to be unable to sleep during the times given above.

Lunar eclipses have always been known as an omen. As Chandra (moon) is related to family and personal dilemmas which causes social and psychological intensity. Mostly, the intensity is related to issues which were brought up or related to December 2010 eclipses.

I will not be surprised at all if the difficulties of world leaders continue to intensify, or if the weather patterns cause crops to be unavailable or enter the market at a high cost. Additionally, there may be issues of terrorism, depression, and unstable economy for those that reside within the viewing are of the eclipse (North Americas, Asia and Australia). But I hope that my visions are proven incorrect when world issues surround nuclear or chemical weapons that effect our environment. Hence, it could be the opposite when all are halted.

On a personal level, for 7 days before the day of the eclipse and 7 days after, no major decisions should be made that would change one’s life. These decisions could pertain to marriage, jobs, moving, or even traveling for business. There could be a very strange outcome or some shocking endings.

The end of January will bring roller coaster rides for many and continue through February. A couple of days before the eclipse, Mars will enter Sagittarius and with Saturn in Sagittarius (per VPAT) will cause many people to experience “Fight or Flight” feelings. Many will seem angry and in order not to say anything they don’t mean, they may run away. Furthermore, projects may not be completed, and if it is not smoothing they may not be completed at all.

In the Vedic Philosophies, anyplace the eclipse is observable will be affected the most. The lunar eclipse will have a long-lasting influence on all fixed signs due to its placement in Aquarius/Leo as both are in fixed signs; therefore, all those under those signs (Aquarius, Leo, Scorpio and Taurus) will be magnified. I will go into more detail later in the blog.

This is also a time that Aquarius/Leo’s are discovering themselves; finding out who they are, and how they are in harmony with their relationships. Both Aquarius’ and Leo’s are often concerned about what others think; it is about looking privately and standing out for who they are. Unique creativeness are idyllic to bring modesty and effort, independently of others.

The full moon, or lunar eclipse, is always about discarding the old to make room for the new. Yet, in the Vedic Philosophies it is recommended that people recognize, and are cautioned to exercise, the same formalities as counseled during retrograde, but with even more discipline during the eclipse.

There is a profound anxiety for sensitive situations and wishes within the context of the house, sign, and planetary aspects affected. To fully increase in value the potential of the lunar eclipse, we must search both houses and signs that are brought into play. Where the Moon is – we can provoke our demons, old behaviors, and uncertainties, and where the Sun is we may find the means to hold and issue from whatever oppression. We can now have understanding in life through our inspired efforts. In any event, there are prospects for deeper empathetic understanding, and finding a balance in our lives.

The Moon in Leo marks a time of determination and charisma. Ruled by the Sun, Leo creates a guidance of cordiality, eagerness, and delight. People may feel inspired, gracious, and liberal. It is a good time to chase romance, be collective, and to help others. Like the Lion that denotes Leo, people may feel self-assured but also require gratitude and appreciation. Attention needs to be taken to avoid overemotional spectacles while attempting to clutch the limelight, or in management positions.

Often full moons, especially attached to the eclipse, are compared to chapters in a book; the conception of forming new chapters in our lives is like a chapter in a book. Every full moon we produce a thesis which means we propose a change rationally that we need to alter because of conditions which are no longer working. Whether it is our appearance or dealing with problems in our own lives, the transformation is imminent because old ways are not working.

As the moon begins to move from bright to dim, and creates a metamorphism to a New moon, we create antithesis. The prevailing energy of the new moon (which was a couple of weeks ago) gave the beginning of simplicity in what needs to change; our thesis (awareness or a change), is it likely or is it a nullification which causes a response, and we begin to plant the seeds.

When the moon orbits to nurture itself into waxing moon we triumph to resolve struggles between thesis (ideas or a modification) and antithesis (what we need to do to make it happen or what won’t work) and this synthesis will permit the truth to form new ideas while undertaking issues that do not work in our lives. In easier terms, we could end a chapter in our lives or even began a new one. But changes will be the climax.

A Lunar Eclipse is painstaking by its effect on zealous reactions. Psychic sensitivity and spiritual tendencies during a lunar eclipse occur because of the lunar energies. So, take this energy and put it toward constructive activities such as writing in your journal and acceptance of your feelings on paper. Remember things that happen within the 3-week period during and after the eclipse usually have long lifelong effect. If the eclipse happens on your sun it will have a great influence on your life, but if there is a clash it may be problematic for 6 months. To find out more about where your placements are I would suggest you speak to a western astrologer, either Leslie or Lee. If not, please refer to the link to find other recommended astrologers (here).

The power of this Full Moon and the eclipse can be particularly tough for those who were born under a Full Moon PHASE, as well those that have significant houses in Aquarius/Leo, not to mention those with fixed Sun Signs (Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus).

The Leo vigor can frequently cause us to be more biased, tenacious, content, annoyed, conceited, vain, and superior. It’s harder (but not unbearable) to make changes or be supple, since the Moon is the closest ‘Planet’ to Earth. It also hits us more deeply than most Planets.
The material which I am about to present is not grounded upon western or eastern astrology rather; it is based upon a Vedic philosophy. This philosophy arises from its roots as placeholders which use the method that there are no absolutes. Though astrology and numerology can be used as placeholders (like a name tag) the mixture is what makes a soul.

These are general tendencies based upon the methodology of VPAT and not to be confused for astrology. Those that have had a chance to talk to me may have had their VPAT chart done and I recommend that you now take this material and use your columns to foretell your six-month outcome.

Principal placeholders that will be pretentious by this eclipse will be fixed signs therefore, I will be emphasizing Leo/Aquarius primary and move into those that may be least affected.

Fixed Signs

(Leo, Aquarius, Scorpio and Taurus)

This is the 4th of Aquarius’ series of eclipses; the first was Aquarius/Virgo axis in August of 2016 which was focused around work (read more about it here). The 2nd Series in Pisces/Leo Eclipse changed how we looked at life. In the fall of 2017, the journey continued as both Aquarius Eclipse and Leo Eclipse changed their perception of life. This continual transformation will affect fixed signs until 2019 even when Aquarius leaves in the fall. However, Saturn in moved into Sagittarius (read about it here) until 2020. This means it will affect all fire signs including Leo. While all fixed signs will be affected by this eclipse as it is in their sister house.

Leo: This is the second of the series of eclipses for you, Dear Leo, until January 2019. You will now ask questions as 5 W’s one H. Who do you want to be like or who are you? What do you want to do in the future? Where do you want to work and live? When do you want to do it? The last question is how will you do this. The first step will be to examine yourself, your health, personality, and your visions of life. As you make ground breaking changes necessary to make these changes. But remember, Saturn in Sagittarius (per VPAT) will continue to transform you until 2020, in a way you have never experienced before.

Aquarius: Even though this eclipse is not in your sign this is an Aquarius/Leo axis which means you will be affected unlike the last eclipse which reformed you. This eclipse will force you to reconsider every relationship in your life, i.e. business, personal, and family. It will be a time looking at everything from desires to commitment as well as happiness, success and vision. Also remember Jupiter in Libra (per VPAT) will bring things you treasure and things that no longer serve a purpose will leave. Since VPAT does not focus much on the sun signs; rather, it has a moon focus, expect the unexpected good or bad, this is your eclipse too.

Scorpio: This eclipse is more karmic than you ever would have thought. You will now be concentrating on your career, goals, occupation and all things that make you the person you are. It will go profoundly into the origins of your accomplishments, influence, standing, social status, financial strength, recognition, esteem, and the position you are longing. It is about your face and how you will increase your goals in the bigger picture.

Taurus: Consideration of physical value is going to take much of your energy. However, it is a time to be able to balance your personal life and things that are meaningful to you. You may consider the focus of things that you own such as your home, vehicle, jewelry, and family values. Hence, it is time to look at your work and personal life, how you will maintain peace and harmony, and how you can have the best of both worlds while bringing yourself happiness. However, with Uranus in your sign now you must do what you can to save for a rainy day.

Cardinal Signs

(Aries, Capricorn, Libra, and Cancer)

This eclipse is making some significant changes to Cardinal signs. As we are now moving away from Uranus in Aries. Some Aries’ should feel good as nothing will be that shocking. However, Saturn in Sagittarius will continue to impact your work and friends, Dear Aries. If you have not paid your debt to someone, or something, you will pay Karma as Saturn governs your Karma. However, nothing will compare to the depths of Rahu and Katu transits in Capricorn/Cancer which will impact after life and a reconsidering of the present. Soon, Cancers will be going through their own transformations. A Little hint is the 2009 eclipses. Additionally, with Jupiter in Libra (according to VPAT) Libra’s will now go through their own wonderful transformation in areas of money, home, relationships somewhat a euphoria effect.

Aries: You should be feeling a lot better. Now is the time to revive and reflect on how you differentiate, justify, and examine everything in your life. It may be time to go back to school or do a spiritual vocation. As you do so you will have blessing and affluence. But the problem is you wager on your reserves too much. Whatever makes you feel good and whatever makes you feel bad will be the focus of the eclipse.

Libra: As you continue to enjoy the gifts of Jupiter, remember to watch your weight and indulgences as they could cost you plenty in the long run. This eclipse is about wonderful surprises for you. Unexpected money, happiness, and prosperity is coming to you. It does not mean go and win the lotto (well that could happen but I did not say so) it’s about inheritance, and profitable gain. You could be more social than ever before and you will have supporters that will assist you in every way.

Cancer: You have been riding high for quite some time now. The time is almost near for your own eclipses this summer. Hence Rahu/Ketu transit is making you look at life in a deeper sense. Consider whom you leave things behind for. Whom have you hurt that you need to mend with and what Karma will you take with you? It’s time to consider your family and how you are maturing. You will have a double-edged sword here. Not that it must be bad at all but it is about your family, relatives, moods, reactions, and how you relate to them. Your thinking and focus needs to be on budgeting debts and profits, and how you manage them. Remember that according to VPAT this is your eclipse even though Leo’s are focused. Something will definitely end.

Capricorn: Having Rahu/Ketu and Pluto in your sign is not always easy, you may have your high highs and low lows and it can cause depression or even anxieties. This is your transformation. If you have not taken care of your health you will be shown your weaknesses. Things will happen out of the blue and you could have enormous losses or gains. You may anticipate family money, or insurance which could be taken away or given to you. Even with any negativity, your psychic antennas are beaming and your intuition is strong, so use to your purpose.

Mutable Signs

(Pisces, Virgo, Sagittarius and Gemini)

With Saturn in Sagittarius, by association all mutable signs should be feeling the effects of Saturn. It could be dissatisfaction at work, long hours, fatigue, or unfulfilled expectations. Fortunately, at the end of the tunnel (2020) you will no longer let minor things change your moods or perception. With Uranus moving into Taurus, it could be that Virgos may feel things happen suddenly or unexpectedly. While Gemini is getting rubbed by Jupiter in Libra, they may be turned between having fun and working. Lastly, Pisces is still trying to dust their shirts from their eclipse last spring and continue their journey to change.

Sagittarius: Saturn can be quite difficult but also leaves a present at the door. Saturn is debt paying transit so be careful what you do and say as it will be a difficult transit if you don’t. On top of the disturbance of karma teacher this eclipse is also sitting in your dharma home. This can be a good period. You may go through a period when you don’t know where you are going but you will discover things which no one has ever known. It’s time to go back to school, go to a spiritual retreat, or do charitable work; the more you do the more you will be rewarded.

Virgo: As your transit of luck and financial uncertainties have moved past you, the universe tests you to see how you can handle things that are the unexpected. When Uranus goes into Taurus, your hard work and money will have unexpected shocks, both good and bad, so be prepared for the unknown. This eclipse is about endings. It will focus on impartiality, isolation, seclusion, depression, and dependencies. It is about letting go of things that no longer serve a purpose and cause negative thinking in your life. It is time for you to remove yourself from anything that is tangible and bring humility and freedom into your life.

Gemini: I guess it can be said that you may be on a win-win situation for a minute or two. With Jupiter in air signs you will find it benefits you. This eclipse takes place in a house which you are an expert at: communication, learning, and investigation. It is how you share your information with people and how you build rapport. However, it is not just about information, but also how you apply what you know with people. It is about media and every person in your life. Additionally, since you love to travel, this will be about travels also.

Pisces: You have now completed one phase of your transformation. Remember, every year after an eclipse you become more mature. But this means owning up to your mistakes and the lessons you have learned during your occupation. Now it is time to reconsider how you handle conflicts, adversaries, and how they affect your health. You will now have to dig deep to confront your fearful demons, and how you attend to others.

What I have offered are universal predispositions based upon VPA. Everyone’s characteristics will be diverse, contingent upon the individual VPA chart. This is not astrology and I strongly recommend if you need an astrological reading to contact Leslie Hale or Lee Stillwater, or any of my other recommend Astrologers here. If you are looking for a Vedic Astrologer, contact me privately as I can point you in the direction which is most beneficial to you.

Moon in Leo could cause a subtle need to sparkle and be well-regarded by others. You may express your feelings in a naïve manner – either vivaciously or dramatically. A natural magnetism with children, influence, and leadership comes naturally. Nurturing through respect while reassuring them to be strong, bold, and spirited will also come naturally. You view your mother as a royal, powerful, or a valued person; and look for autonomy, friendliness, and power in that relationship.

Through the Lunar Eclipse, it is vital to analyze situations in a changed facet. It is time to re-write your aspiration: “I need help in forming what I vision of and power to manifest happiness through this process. I need the information to love more and the ability to engage in a positive environment.”

Moon in Leo is Spirited, Brave, Studied, Administrative, Planned, AND MOODY. It is my suggestion that you purchase a Yellow candle and carve your name through to the wick. Anoint the candle with Orange and Rosemary Oil and chant Psalm 65. Chant, in silence, Psalm 40 three times. Allow yourself to intone these words every night until the next moon cycle and let the glory of the higher power enter your body, mind and soul.

The Lunar eclipse also needs extra care. For this lunar eclipse purchase a mauve candle, carve your name through to the wick, anoint the candle with passion fruit oil, and chant Psalm 51.

In addition to these mantras, I recommend a Vedic Spiritual Bath; though this year’s recipes are not available to the public, those that did receive it please follow it.

For this eclipse, as well as the full and new moons, I have incorporated 4 mantras, each one more difficult than the other and more powerful. Do what you can to use proper enunciation as it is the most powerful method of help.

Additionally, to calm the effects of the lunar eclipse, I have incorporated a lunar eclipse mantra. This I suggest reciting now until Feb 15, 2018 and during the midnight hours of the full moon. The Leo moon mantras are:

Easy Mantra

Om Hreeng Shreeng Sauh

Om (Breathe in) Hriing (out) Shriing (in) Suuuuah (breathe all the way out)


Om Kleem Brahmne Jagadadharaya Namah


Aum namah suryay shantaya sarva rog vinashane Ayuh arogyam aishwarya dehi deva jagatpate. japa kusum sankash kashyapeyam mahadhytim dhvantari sarva paapdhanam pranatotsim divakaram

Mantra for eclipse for those who know proper annunciation


Om Shraam, Shreem, Shroum Saha Chandramase Namaha”.


Om Kshirputrayay Vidmahe Amrit Tatvaaye Dheemahi Tanno Chadrah Prachodayat

This Siddha mantra uses the collective essentials that manage each charka: Earth, Water, Fire, and Air. The purpose of this mantra is the to keep us in balance and from becoming irritated through darkness and unfocused energy. This mantra will support an easygoing and pleasant transition to new and positive energy states.

Please Note: I do not claim to be a Western or a Vedic Astrologer nor have the credits or academia to be titled as such. I am a Certified Vedic Philosophical Ayurvedic Reader. My philosophical explanations are based upon Science, Nature, Karma, Astrology, Numerology, Dharma, Ayurvedic, Philosophies, Universal, and many other ideologies to bring collected explanations of possible channels rather than absolutes.

I have already started accepting appointments for those who have Leo in their 1st, 7th, and 10th house for February 1 and 2. If you wish to have a reading please remember that I am only offering 6 months reading for 6 days for this eclipse.

Wishing you the most blessed eclipse. This transit will be powerful and last for 6 months; beginning as early as 7 days before and after.

Quest for Aspirations of Peace ~Prophecies of 2018



(Correct Predictions are highlighted within the paragraphs)

By Maharani Rutan©

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
(bottom of the page is the Video for eyes to open)

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 (The “Me Too” movement, “March for our lives”).

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, China) 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 (4 Nor’easter). 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, Hurricane Maria, Fires in California, Hurricane in Hawaii).

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 (U.S Presidents investigation), norms and expectations. Some things that were once hidden (Scorpio) are now being revealed and people will have a voice (Me too movement, Facebook and other retailers data breaches). 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 (Martin Shkreli sentence).

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 (“No there is no collusion, No I dont know about the payment of Stormy Daniels,” No I did not have sex with a 15 year old, Yes, I slept with him but I did not know he was 15″).

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 one in Capricorn in January 2018. Additionally, we will have two blue moons (one in Leo & one in Libra), 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 on and off ; 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 (See predicted events above). 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 re-transforming 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, Nor’easter). By now people are ready to scream revolution (“Me Too Movement”). 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 2018

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 (Pres. Trump impeachment and investigation), weather patterns were horrendous due to snow storms (Cold Wave, Noreaster), 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 (Trump denies the charges and 2 FBI directors are fired), 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?

March 2018

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.

April 2018

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 (Mark Zekerburgh, testifies in front of U.S Congress regarding data security).

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 (Bill Cosby is dismissed from Motion Picture Academy). Saturn is the teacher of Karma, and Karma could bite. It could also hurt all the way until Autumn (Bill Cosby being Sentence on 9/24 for sexual assault). 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 in Scorpio which will light the sky to our biggest change since 2012.

May 2018

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 (first wall street dip April 2018), 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 (Michigan State University pays 500 million dollars to Nassar Victims).

June 2018

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 (President Trumps border control separating children from their parents led to millions of dollars spent trying to reunite families). 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.

July 2018

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 on July 7th continuing until September 3, 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 (Trump announces new Supreme Court Justice Bret Kavanah) . 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. As I have said before, when there is a final eclipse something is bound to end and something new begins (Brett Kavanaugh is Aquarius)

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.

August 2018

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.

September 2018

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.

October 2018

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?

November 2018

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 22rd 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.

December 2018

As we are walking like we are on cloud 9 gagging 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….”
