Aries January 2018 Horoscope
Aries January 2018: The calendar New Year for 2018 starts off much better than it did last year, which started with Mercury retrograde. This year, January is looking like a very positive time that will allow you to readjust from the hustle and bustle of the holidays.
Before we begin the comings and goings of January, it is best to take a quick look back at the year, and make sure that priorities are in order. This is not a new year astrologically, but in our everyday life, there is much renewal starting on January 1st. The year does start glowingly, with a Super Full Moon on January 1st.
We start the calendar New Year with Mercury in Sagittarius, which allows you to have a renewed sense of passion about your work, or projects you are involved with. Take this time to get your mind, body, and soul in order for the coming year.
Even if it is just a few times, try a renewal mediation / affirmation, such as the one below. When you are alone and free of distractions, say it a few times until it really sinks in. Absorb the meaning and let it ease its way into your subconscious. Now we are ready to jump into 2018!
I am totally committed to realizing my goals this coming year and I am willing to do whatever it takes to make 2018 the best year yet! I can clearly see myself living my dream and can easily envision myself being happy and successful. I will dedicate at least ten minutes of every day to improve my health and fitness. I dedicate every evening of 2018 to showing gratitude for all the wonderful things in my life.
Every end becomes a new beginning. Take a moment to decide how you wish your new year to unfold. The beginning of a new year brings an open door for reinventing yourself. If we move with the events of life, holding onto our memories but letting go of the past, and plan for the future but meet openly whatever arises, we discover that our life is more vibrant and free than anything we imagined.
When we’re in a new situation, at the beginning of a new year, or in a new state of mind, it’s natural to make resolutions. But in those resolutions are we staying true to ourselves or trying to be someone different? When we embark upon a new year, a new beginning, we are calling upon ourselves to be the best we can be. Friendships can be very important to new beginnings. They may help us in our transition or they may help encourage us to awaken our dreams. Never underestimate the power you have to take your life in a new and exciting direction.
