Career is the major theme of 2018 with so many power-planets at the top of your chart. Try to stay in touch with loved ones! Carry photos of them as a reminder. Even the ‘resting’ among you will somehow draw new responsibilities or the spotlight, and this intensifies in March-May, and in August-September, when you’re pushing hard towards a status goal. Expect financial improvement in late February/early March, and then from September onwards as Venus and Pluto link-up. Do take rest breaks.
April 21-May 21
If people remark that you seem ‘changed’ in 2018, not your old self and oddly restless, blame a bunch of celestials urging you on to break into a new kind of world. This will become more apparent from May when Uranus enters your sign and the need to be truer to yourself becomes more pronounced, for years to come actually. Don’t expect everyone to love the New You. Venus’ extended stay in Scorpio from September to early 2019 assures you love, money or at least publicity.
May 22-June 21
‘Intensity’ can be a frightening word. But really it’s about energy and focus. 2018 is most certainly a year of intense work, but also of signs that life itself is moving on big-time; and you’re certainly primed for a few fundamental emotional and financial changes. Career improvement arises from the performance of kindness, not ploys of naked ambition, especially from September onwards. Jupiter bestows happy fortune on your work with an opportunity to greatly expand your social world from November – a time to refresh the wardrobe.
June 22-July 23
Usually so adept at hiding true feelings, you’re already getting the sense that 2018 won’t let you snuffle away in any kind of shell. Jupiter emboldens you to express natural talents, or to further develop them, while from May, Uranus leads you into more exciting long-term social situations, perhaps to do with work, campaigning or politics. Intimate and/or professional relationships will be lively as you eagerly veer towards new, free-spirited stimulation while cutting away from mouldy types who no longer support your direction or values.
July 24-August 23
Everything to do with home, family and your personal security are blessed under Jupiter for much of the next year – this can be a time when the clan grows, the home gets vastly improved or you migrate to a better post code area. In the work or health area, Saturn causes you to question more rigorously what needs to be done to improve a situation, while Mars introduces you to useful people in May-June and September. From September, finances perk up under a powerful Venus-Pluto link.
August 24-September 23
If family or other responsibilities have tied you down in recent times, the coming year will present you with situations that lure you out to show the world what you can do in your own right, not just as a parent or employee, especially in the March to May and August-September periods. Overseas or educational influences on your thinking become more apparent from May onwards – and sudden offers to travel or expand your knowledge should be accepted. Domestic improvements reassure you from November.
September 24-October 23
Income preoccupies you more than usual either because of extravagance or a lucky streak in cash matters. Let’s hope the latter. A business started between now and November has Jupiter’s support provided you stay real. This works well for your sense of personal security. But in the area of home, you’re becoming more aware of limitations. Are you underwhelmed by the neighbourhood or a loved one? In spring and late summer you’ll be taking the initiative to sort out a domestic or family situation for good.
October 24-November 22
Since October 2017 Jupiter has occupied your sign and stays there till November 2018 – lucky you. What this promises is personal growth and more opportunity, particularly in financial areas, but the onus is on you to push ahead boldly with a plan. Life will meet your initiative half way. Make more effort to communicate your ideas in the March-May and August-September times. From September to early 2019, Venus in your sign augurs an image makeover (perhaps a discreet nip ‘n’ tuck), a possible admirer and enhanced charisma.
November 23-December 21
Saturn’s departure from your sign comes as some relief: the sense of angst will be slowly receding as your ruler Jupiter encourages you to reinvent yourself with a new spiritual interest which helps to exorcise past negativities. A luxury spa in which to ponder would be perfection. There is a need to attend to earnings matters, and spring and late summer are best times to step up your act. No more moping! With ruler Jupiter in your sign from November, a whole new world awaits.
December 22-January 20
The old year brought you a big life change. And so, 2018 is a lot about starting out again which first requires some thought about what you want and how to get it. Take it slowly, rushing is not required. Jupiter greatly increases social opportunities to mix business with pleasure, and Mars in your sign bestows zest in the spring and mid-late summer – you’ll be quite unusually pushy which raises chances of success. The last quarter of the year sees business and/or social life improvement.
January 21-February 19
Does a contemplative mood go well with career ambition? It can do. Thinking deeply about the past, possibly about mistakes made, greatly helps your strivings to expand career or status, if (and only if) you’ve learnt a few life lessons about folly. So enlightened, who can stop your progress? From May onwards, ruler Uranus turns your attention much more to home and family: a stale or unhelpful domestic situation will become less tolerable, and in all likelihood you’ll be throwing out some ‘dead wood’.
February 20-March 20
Exciting times! Oh we are getting about. Rarely have you been so determined to realise long-held dreams and ideals – or even to get a business off the ground. Central to any plan is an overseas contact or the need for more education. And from May onwards, you’ll be adopting more original or unusual ways of expressing yourself. All this stimulation could be jarring at times. However, from September you’ll start to feel more accustomed to the rollercoaster nature of your 2018. Fasten seatbelts.
