new startAfter getting an overview of next year while working on the 2018 Good Timing Guide, I have to recommend that you get important new starts going this year. Next year has about 5-6 months with unpredictable volatile and potentially explosive energies (Mars square Uranus). Normally any Mars cycle lasts a few weeks, but Mars will retrograde next year making it last longer. When it retrogrades in 2018, it makes the square to Uranus three times! It’s rarely out of range during from late April 2018 to early October 2018.

That’s not the type of cycle I like to see for starting new companies, introducing new products or services, launching web sites or signing major contracts, unless you happen to be selling fireworks or dynamite. Things tend to blow up with that cycle and it can be rough to have that energy in your new company (basically forever, unless you restart it).

In light of this situation, I encourage you to get your new starts done this year, in 2017. In numerology, this happens to be a #1 year (2+0+1+7 = 10. 1+0 = 1), which is exceptionally good for new starts. But wait until May 11th or later before you start anything important. We’re in the midst of Venus retrograde now and then we’re in Mercury retrograde from April 9th through May 3rd. 

Many of you know that even the very best days in my Good Timing Guide (those with all green lines) have bad financial times. When you’re going to start a company, you definitely want it to work financially, to have high growth, and strong ties to your customers and vendors. You want the right energies for your type of products and services, a good company reputation and the type of employees or contractors that will make your company successful. While the Good Timing Guide is a good starting point, it cannot provide that type of information. For that level of detail, you need a time of day, a location (city and state) and an astrologer who understands good timing.

Due to this unusual situation in 2018, I’ve decided to delay my sabbatical for one more month. Please get your new starts done this year! I will work Mondays and Tuesdays in April to assist anyone who wants to start a company this year, launch a web site, introduce a product or service, have surgery, sell their house, or sign an important contract. These new starts can be for any time this year. 

I don’t know if I will get back to client work later in the year or not. I will probably need at least 6 – 9 months for my sabbatical, to get my big projects done. So if you plan on doing a new start later this year, contact me now to get your timing done.
