You’ve got to stay dedicated to your path today! Saturn, the planet of commitment and structure, turns direct after its retrograde of nearly five months. Since May 23, the karmic planet has been moonwalking in the sign of Aquarius, asking us to commit to what we love.
It’s also been asking us to work hard on projects and relationships that we really want to see grow. With the right level of commitment, everything we hold near and dear has the ability to take flight. As long as you’re willing to do the work, Saturn will reward you as it starts to move forward and retrace its steps and energy from May. Projects that had been put on hold or the back burner can suddenly come to light again.
You’ll have to put some elbow grease into it if you want to get things done, but keep your eyes on the prize. Never forget the foundation you’re creating and the groundwork you’re laying, not only for yourself but also for generations to come. You’re being aided by your sheer willingness to put your blood, sweat, and tears into the things and people you love. Whatever is worth the struggle is exactly what you need to focus on at this time. Whatever falls away wasn’t good enough for you in the first place. After all, with all of this work to do, Saturn doesn’t have time to play games!
Saturn stations direct today. Our thinking begins to shift towards the future — at least rhetorically. However, we aren’t likely to see any clear paths forward and we may be particularly bothered by details that seem to be out of place. Our individual assessments may be especially harsh today, leading to moody dissatisfaction. We may have some concern that certain traditions and ways of doing things are being ignored. The retrograding Mercury continues to return our attention to understanding how others are seeing our decisions. We are likely to believe that we must fulfill an ideal that is illusory. The Moon goes void-of-course at 9:30 PM PDT.

Follow the way of Deer Spirit and you will do well, gaining the respect of others and finding common ground that is pleasing to you. Remember that understanding others and their needs will be more powerful at this time than putting your own first. If you do that, you will be rewarded tenfold.
In traditional Numerology, the 18 is usually reduced to the root number 9 by simply adding up its individual digits: 1 + 8 = 9.
This means that the primary energy that influences someone who is aligned with the energy of number 18 comes from the number 9 that lies at its root.
The number 9, you may recall, is a profoundly spiritual number which is associated with The Hermit in the Tarot, who goes off into the wilderness in search of spiritual fulfillment.
The number 18, however, is also strongly influenced by the numbers 1 and 8, which are highly materialistic numbers.
The 1 is the number of originality and leadership, brimming with confidence and charisma.
The number 8 is known as a power number which imparts the ability to accomplish great things, to build and manage vast organizations.
When these two numbers combine with the universal spiritual energy of number 9, it can lead to the establishment of a humanitarian organization, the use of wealth or connections for philanthropic purposes and the self-sufficiency and determination to produce profound outcomes for the betterment of humanity.
