FROM an astrological viewpoint, the Astrological Year 2017-18 ... which begins with the March Equinox 2017 ... is ushering in a golden opportunity for progress and vision.

According to a rather obscure astrological text called the "Galendarjum Oeconomicum Practicum Perpetuum," the Year 2017 is the "Year of the Sun."

The Year 2015 was the optimistic YEAR OF JUPITER and 2016 was the YEAR OF MARS with all the tumultuous upheavals of the past 12 months.

Now Antinous in his guise as Helios-Apollo takes over from War God Mars. While the outgoing astrological year was fraught with fear and peril, this new astrological year will shine with insights into how to transform our world.

German alchemist and astrologer Dr. Mauritius Knauer devised a perpetual calendar based on planetary rulerships in the late 18th Century.

His "Galendarjum Oeconomicum Practicum Perpetuum" was published just as the planet Pluto was entering the Sign of Capricorn.

And now in 2017-18 Pluto is again in the Sign of Capricorn for the first time since the 18th Century.

Pluto in Capricorn is about revolutionizing age-old political and economic structures and replacing them with completely new and different structures.

Just look at the changes which occurred in the late 18th Century ... the French Revolution and the American Revolution, for starters.

Look at all the political turmoil in the world since Pluto entered Capricorn in early December 2008.

And just look at all the turmoil on the global financial markets, the Arab Spring, uprisings and warfare around the world ... and a horrific resurgence of Islamic terrorism.

Pluto will remain in Capricorn until the year 2024 ... by which time many cherished and time-honored political and economic institutions will have been swept aside forever.

Ironically, the planet Uranus was also discovered in the 18th Century, and many astrologers consider its discovery to have marked the first faint Dawning of the Age of Aquarius, the sign which Uranus rules.

Uranus and Pluto have been in a tight 90-degree square aspect to each other on and off for the past two years ... exacerbating all the global tensions forcing renewal and renovation. In 2017-18 Pluto and Uranus will move out of this right-angle configuration ... allowing the Year of the Sun to radiate healing energies.

Antinous as Apollo-Helios empowers you to use those healing energies to grow beyond yourself ... to discover hitherto unknown strengths and talents within yourself ... to waken slumbering powers of growth and protection deep within your being.

Despite all the turmoil in the world ... in the face of pessimism and doubt ... you find new self-confidence, enthusiasm and a new spirit of joy.

There will be new challenges, but the feeling of dread and fear which dominated the preceding 12 months is banished by the warmth and brightness of the Year of the Sun 2017-18.
