If you’re feeling a bit lost, unsure, and down in the dumps this year, you’re not alone. 2018 has been a difficult year for most people already. Here’s what you need to know about it…
I felt compelled to write this blog post due to my own experience and the experience of others so far this year. It has been a tough year and an intense one at best, with the energy of the planets causing a lot of mayhem. The most common theme which seems to be encompassing everyone is the feeling of being lost. Decisions have been difficult to make, and that sense of direction that we usually hold in our lives seems to be out of reach at the moment. There’s only a lucky few of you who have escaped the ferocious energy of 2018 so far. So, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty and take a look at WHY it’s been such a hard year…
If you remember 2015 as well as I do (because it was a shocker of a year for me), it had a major lunar event which was a set of four full super blood moons. Now, 2018 hasn’t had four full super blood moons like 2015, but it has had two full super moons in the space of a month, and one close by which occurred on the 28th of October 2017. We pretty much had a triple, full super moon event all within the space of just over two months. The last full super moon was also a very rare blue blood moon as well.
From my experience, super moons intensify situations. When they happen to be full super blood moons, they are problematic at best. The situations that arise from super blood moons are painful, energy depleting, feel soul destroying, and are all-round awful to deal with. January’s last super blue blood moon was no exception to this rule. Although, the major changes these moons bring actually have a purpose, with that purpose being to change our life path by offering us lessons and removing everything from our lives which no longer serves us well.
Combined with the super moon and blood moon factor, the first two super moons fell in the sign of Cancer. Cancer is governed by the moon, so both the sign and the moon have powerful bond. When full moons fall in the sign of Cancer they herald an especially emotional time, regardless of your sun sign. If your sun sign, moon sign or rising sign are of the water element (Cancer, Pisces or Scorpio) then this makes the energy even more intense. Approximately 60%-75% of the world’s population would have a water sign in at least one of these positions in their astrological birth chart. So, with a full super moon sitting in the sign of Cancer, our emotional guard falls down and we become extremely sensitive. Our emotions also tend to become distorted and overwhleming under the spell of a super moon.
When we put these two aspects together: the blood moon’s energy and the energy of the sign in which the first two super moon’s fell into, we get a major event: an upheaval of emotions followed very closely by major changes in our life. Not easy for anyone to deal with, no matter how level-headed and strong you are!
After dealing with the events of January, most people have come into February feeling lost and aimless. There’s been a feeling of hopelessness, and as though we have forgotten what we are passionate about and what we should do with ourselves. It’s like training for your first marathon, going through the pain of it, then having nothing to do afterwards and being overcome with a sense of ‘what now?’. This is February 2018, and the majority of readings I’ve done this month have started with the sentence ‘I feel lost’.
2018 is not set to be a ‘bad’ year though. It has started off emotional, thrown us a curve ball by pulling down everything which is obsolete, and now we are in the stage of reassessing our lives. 2018 is destined to be a major spiritual growth year, with the first half of the year being a little difficult, and as though you can’t plant your feet firmly on the ground. But, the second half of the year will be very stable.
One last point to consider for 2018 is that it is a master number year in numerology. 2018 is governed by the number 11, which is a high vibration and spiritual growth number. But, it is also governed by the number 2, which is the master number 11's dumbed-down shadow side. Master numbers enhance nerve-related conditions such as anxiety, stress and sensitivity due to their high vibrations, especially if we are going through the lesson of the base number first. So, this year will start by bringing us an extreme sensitivity to the base number of 2: learning how to balance different aspects of our lives and to break out of routine. But then, the year’s master number of 11 will bring us spiritual growth in the end. This is why the year also seems to be divided into a ‘bad’ half and a ‘good’ half, as the year kicks off under the influence of the number 2 and ends on the high note of number 11.
So, when you get to the end of the year you’ll be able to look back and say to yourself ‘I grew spiritually in a big way this year’. There is always light at the end of the tunnel; just remember that at the moment you aren’t walking through that tunnel alone.
Love and light,
