Your Tarot and Astrology Predictions for 2018

Let’s take a closer look – this spread of cards was chosen back in December 2017 – the question was: ‘What is the most important thing each sign of the zodiac needs to know about the year 2018?’

Almost 110 years ago, the Bohemian artist Pamela Colman-Smith created the Smith-Waite Tarot with Arthur Waite. Both Londoners were in the Golden Dawn, a secret magical society whose members included W.B. Yeats and Oscar Wilde’s wife, Constance.

Pamela’s cards work well with astrology and have a special message for you this year.

I am currently writing a book about Astrology and Tarot so have spent the last year researching Pamela’s life and times.

The deck is just as powerful now as it was at the turn of last century and as the Golden Dawn members were trained in astrology, it is no surprise to find each of the cards encoded with zodiac sign, planet or asteroid images.

The deck works very well with the usual techniques of astrology prediction, like transits. How does 2018 look for you, and the other 11 signs of the zodiac? Let’s take a closer look – this spread of cards was chosen back in December 2017 – the question was:

‘What is the most important thing each sign of the zodiac needs to know about the year 2018?’

  1. So here is the missing link.

    The three founders of the Golden Dawn, William Robert Woodman, William Wynn Westcott and Samuel Liddell Mathers, were Freemasons and the first Freemasons were former Knight Templars. The Freemasons went ‘underground’ when the Tempar Order was dissolved by the Pope in the early 14th century.

    The Templars had brought an early version of the Tarot from Syria to the West during their crusades. The Tarot was however banned by the Roman Church when the Templar Order was dissolved – ostensibly on the grounds that it was the ‘work of the devil’ but no doubt rediscovered or reinvented in the 19th century.

    Templar churches were always dedicated to ‘Our Lady’ Mary Magdalene, whose early Tarot symbol was the ‘three cups’. Carvings of the three cups can be found in every former Templar/Cistercian priory – or could until the dissolution of the monasteries. It doesn’t surprise me that they can also be found in a Dublin pub.

    • Thank you so much. This is fascinating. I will be in at the Freemasons’ Museum in London next week so will focus on the Three of Cups and see where it takes me. The Dublin pub door is obviously much later – but the pub itself was known as the Zodiac Lounge as far back as the Sixties. Today it is The Bruxelles.

  2. I had put my Rider Waite tarot deck away because I was always asking obsessive questions over and over until I had an ideal answer. This was very destructive and now since January of this year I am starting to draw some cards again. After a couple of hard years I really get what you say about Leos, it’s a time for healing. I am not looking for answers in the future anymore through Tarots and astrology, I am using them to understand the present moment and how I am feeling. I feel that this year I am finally going to address the emotions that have been keeping me from my full potential (finances and business ventures). Thanks Jessica.

    • Well done on putting your Tarot deck away – you were not using it the way nature intended (or quantum mechanics, actually). And yes, if you are a Leo, then 2018 is the year you are given the chance to work on body issues. Some you may have lived with for years. It’s time!

  3. Great article! Love the libra travel. If you get a moment to answer me, I would love! I got rejected from my 2019 educational “trip” today ;( Like you said, I feel like this “no” is my “yes”; my lead to my true path. Will I be led to a bigger and/or“better” trip? Please shed some light! Xx

    • I am sorry to hear that. With Jupiter in Scorpio in 2018 in your Eighth House of family inheritance/family legacy it looks as though the family tree will hold the answers you are looking for.

  4. Hi Jessica,

    I do really wonder if my rising sign predictions resonate more with me, even my partner’s. I was going through the major events happened and happening in my life, and it’s your predictions for my rising sign.


    • Never use the Rising Sign always use the Sun Sign, or you will become very confused. Sun Sign astrology is based on Solar Sign houses! And this is a prediction about the future, so it would not have already happened to you or your partner anyway. I hope that helps.

  5. Hi Jessica
    Thank you for this post.

    Some web opportunities came but require $$. Not sure if they are real or hoax. Also doing some free web courses as you mentioned last year. Am I in the right direction? I do this on my spare time.

    Trying to rent a room through air bnb/ student accommodation but nothing seem to be working.

    I got into a Mentoring Program at work (another libra born close to my birthday is my mentor ) she corrected my resume and helps me apply for jobs. I need to make more money.

    Thank you for your kind replies.

    • Saru, you are trying really hard to get things together, so let’s have a look at how to save yourself time, money and effort and get things sorted out for 2018. You need to get your accommodation sorted out, because everything comes from being in the right apartment or house. Please turn to family or friends who feel like family. Not strangers. You have the South Node in Cancer in the Fourth House of home, and we are going to see you experience the North Node in Cancer, across your South Node, from the end of this year. Even before that, you will have cycles in Cancer in your Fourth House of emotional security, belonging and accommodation which help you. Can you move back home? Is that possible? Can you see if it is possible to stay with, or rent from, others in the family – like aunts or uncles, perhaps? Is there a good friendship in your life, where the people feel like they could be brothers, sisters or parents? This is what I think you need to focus on. You are also going to do extremely well with a number of plans, projects or qualifications and this will be the gateway that helps you move, or return. You need a space to work or study in. What Virginia Woolf called ‘A Room of One’s Own’. It is out there for you. Forget strangers or Air BnB. Go to who you know.

  6. I was just reviewing the Cancer 2017-2018 Birthday Horoscope. I remember at the time I read it back in June 2017 I was petrified. Well, here we are March 2018. You predictions were spot on. Uranus in Aries has been transiting my 10th house and creating havoc. I loved the work I did, but I was stuck with horrific management which made my job a nightmare. I was afraid to leave for security reasons, but I felt so insecure anyway. On Sept 27 when the Jupiter/Uranus opposition squared my natal Venus, I was let go from my job. Freed without my consent which was my fear. Now here we are in March 2018. I have a new job doing basically what I was doing at my previous job -which is what I love and I am good at. I have lost no tenure or benefits package and it’s a healthier work environment.

    So what I am saying is first, the horoscope was so accurate. Uranus and Jupiter worked together to free me from a bad situation where I couldn’t free myself. I can’t forget Saturn as he rewarded me as well. Literally, the day after he left Sadge where he was transiting my 6th, I got this job offer.

    Long story short….the planets don’t lie. You are brilliant and intuitive. I see the horoscope I read more than 6 months ago where I was so scared and it has turned out so well. I got freed from a situation I hated but would not free myself from. I got a 3 month paid vacation to rest and relax. I got a new job doing what I love and what I am good at. I can’t forget Jupiter in Libra transiting my 4th, because my new job lets me work from home (where I love) full time. I get to visit the city where my new job is every 6 weeks and it’s a city I love to visit. It feels like a second home. I would possibly consider moving there someday.

    Sorry for the long post, but I am dumbfounded right now by the accuracy of astrology! All I can say, is I hope Uranus is satisfied where I am now, because I can’t deal with anymore drama!

    Thank you Jessica! Your predictions are spot on! Thank for leaving these old posts up so we can compare months down the road and see how things come to pass!

    Blessings to you!!!

    • Thank you so much. This is a fantastic thing for me to read, far from my desk (I just left Dubai airport) and I am so pleased that you have made the astrology work for you so well. And yes, leaving the old posts up is always interesting for all of us on here, isn’t it? We can see how the predictions panned out…

  7. Hi Jessica, thank you for this and on the 2018 chart, you mention that there will be changes for people born between January 4th, 1970 to May 3rd, 1970 is major, please could you advise how it will impact on me. I am not sure if you can see my chart.
    I have now made the move to a new location but things still feel a little stuck

    • Won’t be stuck for long as you’ll need to radically rethink your money, and maybe your whole value system, across May, June 2018. Uranus is changing signs for the first time in your life and triggers your Second and Eighth houses of finance, property, charity, business, possessions.

      • Hi Jessica, thank you so much for this, I will look out for this. I have looked on the site but please can you advise how a retrograde Jupiter in Scorpio will affect me? I have quite a few retrograde planets but do not understand them

        • Good question. You don’t feel retrograde planets in your chart until they are hit by transiting (travelling) planets. You have Jupiter at 1 Scorpio Retrograde. That’s about helping/healing using money, possessions, charity, houses, apartments. You give, because you can afford to give. Yet, because Jupiter is retrograde, whenever he is triggered (as he was last year) you go back and forth. You start to lend, share or donate – then you change your mind, or get stuck, or obstructed. this happened, final quarter of 2017.

        • Retrograde stuff in your chart just works back and forth when it’s triggered. So you can afford to be generous with money, charity, business, property, possessions because you are blessed here. Yet, whenever you lend/share/give/donate at particular times, it gets stuck, or goes backwards. I hope that explains it.

  8. My personal life with my difficult (being nice) Libra husband has been crazier, and more draining than ever which is why I must have missed this great piece. Anything you can offer with regards to my chart and these predictions as I refuse to lose my mind. Thank you Jessica

    • Libra husband issues will disappear from May, then return later in 2018, then go for good in 2019. He is at the end of the cycle. Yes, you would have felt you were being driven crazy. Marriage is hard. Very, very hard. This marriage is being pushed, to change or even finish. No other way to say it. Obviously you would prefer it changed. But in any case the craziness will stop in weeks, then from next year, it does not return.

      • Thank you Jessica, we recently had a discussion/blow out about change and doing things different and going to counseling. The irony is he expects everyone around him to be different or change in someway yet he just talks change and never backs it up. I’m not one that’ll take crap, I call him out and I stand up for myself. He sees that as me being difficult I guess. It’s almost like I’m responsible for him, kids and me changing yet many of the things he wants changed is our response to his actions and lack of change hence the craziness.

        • Astrology can be really helpful in being a rock to lean on, during the months or years it takes to either change a marriage or depart from it. So I am glad you have it there by your side. I think you’ll find that when Uranus (radical change, freedom, independence, revolution) changes signs to Taurus in May, that is really the start of ‘now or never’ decisions for him. You can only see this cycle once in your lifetimes.
