Overview

The veil between truth and fantasy is very, very thin today as Mercury conjuncts Neptune. That's fantastic news for those seeking spiritual enlightenment or artistic inspiration. Not so great for those who are trying to find the truth in a heap of lies. Try to give in to the imaginative vibes of the day, because even in half truths and vagueness there's a certain magic to be found. The air signs, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, will benefit from this touch of spirituality more than most.

Looking ahead, Mercury turns direct on Thursday, easing any communication difficulties and bringing clarity around a difficult issue.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


Dark feelings and urges may arise today. If someone upsets you, for example, you might start thinking of ways to get them back. Thoughts of revenge can be very satisfying! But it's times like these when it's most important to remember the Golden Rule: Treat others as you wish to be treated. It's a simple motto, but it has withstood the test of time for good reason.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


Tricky feelings like jealousy and possessiveness are a common problem today. If you find yourself getting upset over a comment your partner made, or if you're feeling jealous of someone else's success, it's up to you to nip the feeling right in the bud. Look at it this way: It just isn't worth the heartache. You have everything you need for perfect contentment. Dig deep and reconnect with the blessings of your own soul, Taurus.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


Normally you're so lighthearted. But today, a dark mood could descend. If so, don't worry. It won't last. Soon, your positive outlook will return. But while you're in the midst of a blue, reflective mood, why not use it for what it's worth? Maybe there's a problem you haven't addressed yet, or unresolved feelings about an old relationship. The sooner you confront these issues, the sooner they'll dissolve forever.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


Emotionally, you feel stronger than ever today. Even if you're in a sensitive or sentimental mood, there is strength behind it. That enables you to connect with other people with greater authenticity. Your connection with yourself is honest and pure, too. Your depth of feeling helps you know who you are. Explore this increased self-awareness. You might even rediscover parts of your own soul or psyche that you'd forgotten about.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


Let's be honest -- you have a certain flair for drama. You might behave in dramatic ways yourself, or even attract strange situations. But on days like today, it's a good idea to avoid any and all theatrics, whether your own or someone else's. Emotional turmoil can certainly be thrilling in its own way. But right now, when many people are feeling especially sensitive, it isn't the best time to court a crisis.

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


Today, an interaction with someone could spur an emotional journey inward. Or perhaps a book you're reading or a movie you watch reminds you of old, bittersweet memories. If you're swamped with intense feelings, don't try to ignore or explain them away. Just sit with them. Let them sink in. As they deepen, their truth becomes distilled. That's the best way to learn from past experiences, or from your own psyche.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


You're capable of great focus today. This comes in handy if you have any type of research or investigative work to do. It's not merely interesting to chase down information. It's compelling and engrossing. You might even get lost in the task, and realize hours later that you've thought of nothing else! Have fun with this influence, and use it for what it's worth. This kind of concentration is rare.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


It's a good day to lose yourself in work, especially a research project or a creative endeavor. You're able to reach a deep level of concentration. And this is so much more productive than obsessing over your problems. It's easy now to get sucked into hurt feelings or romantic drama. But it's so much better to maintain a positive attitude. Resist the urge to get involved in interpersonal theatrics.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


You're one of the most open people around. But today, there's an air of secrecy swirling around you. You can tell someone is hiding something. Maybe a friend isn't discussing their feelings, or a coworker is planning something in private. Don't let it bother you. It takes too much energy to dig into other people's problems and schemes! It'll all come out in the wash soon enough.

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


Time spent working on a project speeds by today. Your concentration is deep. You're absorbing information like a sponge soaks up water. You might look at the clock and realize that hours have flown by since you started your investigation. It's fun to become this engrossed in an endeavor. It's like flexing your mental muscles. Just don't forget to come up for air -- or food, water and human interaction -- sometime!

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


Emotional issues may arise today. When they do, try not to brood over them. It's better to do something more proactive. Clear the air and find a solution. But right now, many people, you included, are more apt to stew about problems privately. Maybe you aren't ready to face it yet. If not, take this opportunity to really explore it out internally, so you can handle it soon, and thoroughly.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


You make an excellent counselor today, whether to a friend, a child or a client. Your gentle kindness is just right for someone whose feelings are hurt. They know you'll treat them with care. It's also a good day to inspect your own feelings, with the same consideration you'd give to someone else. You can develop a great deal of self-awareness and understanding now, simply by feeling your true emotions.

Overview

Not everything new and shiny is worth having. This goes for new gadgets and cutting-edge tech as well as someone you're attracted to from afar. As the Moon forms a tricky aspect with Uranus, it's best to stick to the things we know and love the best. If it's not broken, quit trying to mess with it. From your love life to your phone, leave well alone.

Those who do hanker after something new - Aries and Libra, I'm looking at you - may well find that their new toy is not worth the effort after all. Looking ahead, habits and compulsions need careful watching on Friday, as the Moon conjuncts Pluto.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


Self-assured, sparkling and completely at ease, you own the world today. No one dares challenge your throne -- but does that mean you should sit back and take advantage of the adoring crowd? No. If you stay humble and active today, you could actually change the world for the better, as soon as tomorrow. So why not get busy right now, Aries? Surely there's something you can think of that needs updating.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


You're putting your foot down today over an issue you find important. And you might think you're exhibiting strength, but really, you're just being obstinate. A lenient attitude would go a lot further now than stubbornness. Try owning up to your weaknesses instead of denying them so vehemently. Your friends and coworkers will understand; they've been there, too. Just a quick, minor attitude adjustment, and you'll get things wrapped up in no time.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


You see yourself as rational, but the people with whom you're working may have a different view of things. If you don't want to end up working alone, make the effort to compromise. Try to take a calm, objective view of your own behavior and attitude. Can you spot any ways in which you're being bossy or insensitive? If so, admit your mistakes, apologize and move forward. You'll gain everyone's respect if you handle things in a professional, straightforward way.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


It's time to stop hiding the truth. You've been working hard at making up plausible, believable stories, and it's starting to compromise your health. It just doesn't feel right to be so guarded. And what are you trying so hard to protect, anyway? Whatever it is, when it comes down to it, it's better just to come clean. You'll feel so much more lighthearted when you do. It's okay to own your truth, even if it's a little bit tarnished.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


Self-confidence makes today's performance seem effortless. Anyone watching you at work is sure to be impressed with how assured you are. See if you can spread this goodness to someone else who could use a little of your magic. They might not be as self-aware as you are, but they can learn from your shining example, Leo. If not, at least they'll get to bask in your warm glow.

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


Ordinarily, you meet a challenge with crafty zeal. After all, you love analysis, efficiency and imposing your own system of organization on a chaotic situation. But at the moment, you're not too good with challenges. Instead of taking them as an opportunity to flex your muscles, you meet them obstinately, pinching pennies all the way. A few days of disciplined flexibility and generosity will get you a lot further than trying to shove your way through some roadblock.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


You're full of vivid, creative ideas now, and you can really make something of them if you put both your mind and your heart into it. That shouldn't be difficult, either: You're filled with fun, vibrant energy. If you can make this a group project, so much the better. Why not paint a room in your house with some friends, or get your work-mates on board for a bold and exciting new undertaking? Whatever you do, it's time to be creative, Libra!

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


You've been going through a private, personal transformation. It could be subtle or it could be huge and overwhelming -- but either way, you've been keeping it mostly to yourself. That's just how you are. But if you feel like opening up today about these changes, that's okay too. In fact, more than okay. Someone could learn a lot from what you've been through. Share your experiences. You'll receive a lot of support for your insights, humility and vulnerability.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


Inquiring minds want to know, so you're asking the hard questions. You don't want to put anyone on the spot; you just really want the answer. You've got something exciting in the works, and you stand to learn something that could really open doors for you. Here's some good news: You can expect favorable responses to your probing today. People actually get a kick out of the fact that you're challenging them to think.

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


You've got something in the works, something potentially quite big. Your vision is grand and far-reaching. But don't feel too frustrated if your current resources or abilities don't stretch quite as far as your imagination. This shouldn't be a cause for worry. Use this brief period as a chance to build your skills and gather more supplies, funds or other support. Then, when you're ready, you'll know you're truly prepared to make this dream a reality.

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


Outrageous ideas, acts and people seem wickedly delightful now. Your creativity is turned on by the idea that there really are no boundaries -- that the world is your oyster, and you can go anywhere you want and accomplish anything you set your mind to. As you go about your business, you might feel tempted to stir things up even further by getting in people's faces. This keeps life fun and interesting, right? Wrong! You're in a playful mood but you still need others' support.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


Low-grade insecurity is making you act strangely, even around people you know well. Your instincts might urge you to escape from it all -- to take a mini-vacation for a few days. But there is another option. Instead of hiding from the world, you could talk things out with a close friend. That will help you get to the root of the problem, so that when it happens again, you'll know how to deal with it.

Overview

Love and spirituality go hand in hand today, as Venus arrives in Pisces. This is deeply emotional energy, so don't be surprised if you feel an instant soul connection with someone you date today. If you're in an established relationship, it's a great time to explore your karmic links together, perhaps through meditation or hypnosis. This vibe is also all about compassion, particularly to animals - maybe it's time to adopt a new rescue friend? Looking ahead, Mars shifts into intellectual Gemini on Saturday, urging us to take a closer look at what we're arguing for.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


Your body feels strong and energetic. Your heart is pumping, and your veins are filled with anticipation for whatever lies ahead. You know life is yours for the taking. Yes, you've certainly hit a peak of physical perfection and spiritual exuberance. Still, don't get cocky. Keep striving to improve, because there are always new experiences to be had and new emotional connections to explore. Keep your eyes and heart open.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


A sudden burst of greed has you shoveling in everything you possibly can today. Whether you're consuming food, material items or ten more minutes on the snooze button, you're headed for major indigestion if you don't slow down. Take what you need, and no more. That's probably a lot less than you think. One way to judge is by looking to see how much the people around you are using. They may have a more moderate and realistic attitude about their desires.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


You have a taste in your mouth for some fun that's well outside your normal group of friends or scope of experience. It's good to test your boundaries, but remember the mantra, 'Everything in moderation.' You don't have the most objective view of yourself right now, which means you could get into trouble before you realize what's happening. In fact, bring a trusted friend with you, someone who can act as a voice of reason if things start getting out of hand.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


Your habits and customs mean a lot to you, but today it's apparent that they only bind you to the past. There are many more reasons for you to change than excuses not to, so no more resisting. It's time to get on board. Identify which parts of your life aren't working, and resolve to transform them or let them go. And don't lament too much over any losses you experience now. Remember, you're making room for something fresh to come into your life.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


Vibrant energy surges within you, lending you grace and style. Hardly anyone could turn in the performance you're giving, because this is the real you. Every hair is in place, and every line is an instant classic. You know, you could be incredibly suave in the near future! Is there some sweet, attractive person you might want to impress? If so, seek them out today. You'll wow them with your smooth energy and poise.

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


You might seem casual and offhanded to others, but you're really a perfectionist. Your friends and family are currently regarding you warily, expecting you to lash out any second. They recognize that irritable look in your eye. Why not surprise them? If anyone tries your patience today, don't let it get under your skin. Remain pleasant and accommodating. Hey, sometimes a fake-it-till-you-make-it approach really works. Pretending you're patient actually makes you feel more patient. Try it and see.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


Life is rich now with vivid, brilliant colors. You're full of ideas and picking up on social cues like a pro, which makes this the perfect time for parties, important meetings and any other gathering that requires you to shine. Staying 'on' for friends and strangers alike is almost sinfully easy. You're able to chat up the most serious, reserved person in the room, and have them loose and laughing in minutes. Can you think of a better way to put that silver tongue to work?

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


New places and experiences never seemed so compelling as they do today. Why not take a look at your budget and see if you can afford a trip to someplace you've never been before? This isn't as spontaneous as simply jumping in the car and taking off for parts unknown, but it offers its own sense of adventure. Besides, Scorpio, you're too aware of the potential for running into snags to be at all irresponsible. That's part of your strength, and your charm.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


People find you quite inspiring at the moment. Your strong, positive energy is making everyone's day more fun, and you're bringing people together. You should reserve a little of this good mojo for your own pursuits, though. Since you're a magnet for connections and allies, work on bringing a few people over to your corner, so they can help you out with your new project. Yes, today will be historic. Imagine what the next month will be like.

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


You have the vitality needed to accomplish great things, but whether you'll actually make it happen is another story. Today could be full of distractions, so be prepared. In fact, why not open your arms and embrace any that come your way? You can take them and use them as inspiration. This is a go-with-the-flow kind of day, which isn't always your strong point, Capricorn. But becoming more flexible is another lesson you can add to your roster.

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


You won't have any problem expressing yourself today, because you're feeling both friendly and forward. So take this opportunity for what it's worth, and make sure you're persistent with your message. You'll probably be both surprised and pleased to find that open-minded people are already on your side, but more conservative types may need some convincing. That's okay -- you're creative and charming enough to bring anybody around.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


Okay, so you're having a hard time. Something isn't going as planned, and you're feeling the urge to turn tail and run. But try not to get so upset over little challenges. That's what life's about: Face your issues so you can grow stronger and move on. If you stand up and test your strength this time, you're more likely to do so the next time some roadblock crops up. And it's not as if you have to do this alone. Ask a friend for backup.

Overview

Mercury retrograde ends this week, so communication will start to feel easier and a little more logical – less emotionally driven. However, Venus moves into super-sensitive Pisces, so issues of love and money could become touchy and easy to get wrong.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


Don't be surprised to feel a little shyer or emotionally reticent than normal. You'll want your love to remain firmly behind closed doors - for a change! If you're single, you may meet someone your family disapproves of - their problem, not yours.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


If you're looking for love, look for someone who is passionate about the same causes and issues as you. If you're already in a relationship, think about campaigning together or working on a community project alongside one another.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


It's a fantastic time for making a good impression at work or in an interview or test of any kind. You can talk your way into almost anything this week, especially professionally. Let's hope you can talk your way out again too!

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


Freedom feels important to you this week and you'll resent being expected to conform or stick to the rules. In love, however, this freedom can be taken too far. If you're in a relationship already, be very careful of rocking the boat.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


This week, you'll feel emotion more deeply than you're used to and that can be unsettling. Someone may challenge you over issues you thought were long gone - stand your ground and be open and honest. The tension will end soon enough.

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


Venus moves into your love zone this week, so it's romance, kittens, poetry and rose petals all the way. Almost. If you're in an established relationship it might be harder work. Small, loving gestures count for a lot - make your sweetheart feel special.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


Over-indulgence is a risk this week, whether that's with food, alcohol, drugs, over-spending or anything else. Practice moderation and if you can't, get a good friend to keep an eye on you. Your health deserves better.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


Venus moves into your passion zone, helping to make this a week to remember. Whether you're single or attached, a sudden and intoxicating attraction could make life interesting - but if you play with fire, you can't complain when burned.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


Your family unit is very strong this week and that gives you great pride. Focus on the home environment and make things feel comfortable and in your style. Your home is an extension of you, so it pays to get it just right.

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


Your imagination gets a huge boost from Venus this week, making it an exceptional time for writers, artists, poets and musicians. Let your thoughts lead you where they will - try not to self-censor. There are some sparks of pure genius in there.

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


Better financial news is enough to make you smile, but what really matters is that you're shifting your expectations when it comes to money. You're learning that there's so much more to life than a big bank balance.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


Venus' arrival in your own sign makes you even more sensitive than normal, so there could well be some tears this week. Try not to take things too personally. You love, and you are loved - the rest of it is largely irrelevant anyway.

Overview

March begins with an emphasis on the new, the novel and the unusual. A tricky Venus-Uranus square on March 1st takes place just before Venus moves into innovative Aquarius, suggesting that old ideas will quickly be swept away by a new focus. The first Mercury retrograde period of the year occurs between March 5th and 28th in Pisces. The usual technology glitches and miscommunications can be expected but this is also an opportunity to step back and to switch off for a while, contemplating a quieter way of life.

March begins with an emphasis on the new, the novel and the unusual. A tricky Venus-Uranus square on March 1st takes place just before Venus moves into innovative Aquarius, suggesting that old ideas will quickly be swept away by a new focus. The first Mercury retrograde period of the year occurs between March 5th and 28th in Pisces. The usual technology glitches and miscommunications can be expected but this is also an opportunity to step back and to switch off for a while, contemplating a quieter way of life.

Fairness becomes increasingly important following the Supermoon Full Moon in Libra on March 20th and the annual conjunction between the Sun and wounded healer Chiron, on March 22nd. This is the perfect opportunity to make up for past misdeeds. With Venus moving into compassionate Pisces on March 26th, this latter part of the month is packed with kinder, gentler energies which encourage us to understand and to sympathize.

March ends with Mars’ move into intellectual Gemini on March 31st – this is fast moving energy which brings all kinds of intriguing possibilities for progress.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


New friendships and new colleagues are possible in early March - Venus arrives in your social zone on the first day of the month, encouraging a sociable outlook. However, don't overdo it with the socializing. Mercury will be retrograde in your privacy zone between March 5th and March 28th, so it's important that you get plenty of time alone to think, to dream and to sort out your emotions. Expect your financial situation to fluctuate for a while when Uranus arrives in your money zone on March 6th. This planet is here to shake up your values and to help you understand that there is more to life than money.

These lessons may feel alarming for a while, but a very constructive Mars-Saturn trine on March 14th will reassure you that you've got this, and that you will manage. The later part of March is a healing, compassionate time for you. The Supermoon Full Moon on March 20th occurs in your house of love, so it's a very special moment for getting closer to your sweetheart. A few days later, the Sun conjuncts Chiron in your spirituality zone, enabling you to heal past traumas. Use this energy to help others too, especially once Venus also moves into this zone on the 26th - your life experiences and the way you've come to terms with them could truly inspire someone else.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


Your sign is taking a walk on the wild side this March - and not before time. As unpredictable Uranus arrives in Taurus, you're much more inclined to take a risk. The emphasis early in the month is on your career, with Venus having arrived in your career zone on March 1st - but be aware that Mercury spends most of the month retrograde in your social zone. Work is one thing but trying to mix business with pleasure could lead to some unfortunate results. The shake up you feel when Uranus arrives on March 6th is very real and could be unsettling.

Don't be afraid to change your outlook on life to fit in with new realities. You've grown, and your ideas and opinions can grow too. A constructive trine between Mars and Saturn will help with this, particularly on March 14th. There's a sense of getting back to business around March 20th when the Full Moon Supermoon illuminates the routines area of your chart. Having tried new things with your career and elsewhere in life too, you're starting to sense what works and what doesn't.

Once Venus arrives in your social zone on March 26th, new friendships will help to cement where you currently are. From March 31st onwards, you'll have a chance to boost your finances too, as Mars takes up residence in your money zone. It's full steam ahead from now on, so your walk on the wild side has been worth it.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


A bright and breezy start to March finds you wanting to explore the world more, as Venus arrives in your travel and philosophy zone. Getting out and about more, even within your local neighborhood, will free your mind and inspire you. Watch out for jealousy from within your friendship circle, however. Be careful also about making any rash decisions with regards to your professional life as Mercury is retrograde in your career zone between March 5th and 28th. The major celestial event of the month is on March 6th when Uranus arrives in your zone of secrets.

Uranus brings shocks and surprises, so you may want to check your social media privacy settings or think twice before you let people know too much about your private life. A shift in how much the world knows about you could feel unsettling, but you can take control of your own destiny here - especially following a constructive trine between Mars and Saturn on March 14th. A creative Supermoon Full Moon on March 20th is your invitation to try some new hobbies, so look for something which makes you feel vibrant and alive. There's another chance to focus on your career late in the month when Venus shifts into your ambitions zone on March 26th. An upsurge of energy comes courtesy of Mars' arrival in Gemini on the last day of the month, setting you up well for April.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


Passions run high early in March - indeed, a tricky Venus-Uranus square on March 1st points towards some tension between your love life and your career. On the same day, however, Venus arrives in the sexiest part of your chart, so plenty of alone time with your lover may help to smooth this over. Between March 5th and 28th, Mercury will be retrograde in your exploration zone, so you'll probably want to stick to familiar people, places and pastimes. However, unpredictable rebel planet Uranus arrives in your social zone on March 6th and will stay here until 2026, so do look out for people you feel inexplicably drawn to. Someone new who enters your life at this point could have a profound influence on you in the coming years.

The beautiful Supermoon Full Moon on March 20th shines from your family zone and suggests that a new arrival within the family will bring much joy - it could be a new baby, a new pet or even just a new understanding between estranged family members. Once Venus moves into your travel zone on March 26th, you'll feel more confident about seeing new places and new faces. If you're single, there's even a hint here that love could come with connections to a foreign country. Towards the end of the month, however, you'll want to take plenty of time out for yourself - Mars arrives in your privacy zone on March 31st and he definitely doesn't want company.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


March gets off to a loving start when gentle Venus arrives in your love zone on March 1st. This is a very good time to make a commitment to your sweetheart, or to find new love if you're single. However, bear in mind that Mercury is retrograde in your passion zone between March 5th and 28th. If you're being unfaithful or involved in anything unsavory, it could be difficult to keep it under wraps at this time. The big event of the month is the arrival of Uranus in your career zone, where it will stay until 2026.

This could herald a major upheaval in your employment - perhaps the loss of a job, the beginning of a new one or a decision to launch your own business. These are really big deals and it's natural that you may feel unsettled for a while. The constructive Mars-Saturn trine on March 14th should hopefully do much to reassure you. Later in the month, the Supermoon Full Moon on March 20th highlights your communication skills and urges you to say what needs to be said. While the Sun conjuncts wounded healer Chiron on March 22nd, you can take steps towards healing past psychological trauma within you.

That done, you'll be free to enjoy the delights of Venus' arrival in your passion zone on March 26th - this certainly raises the temperature in your relationship!

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


Difficult psychological issues from the past seem uncomfortably close at hand as March begins, but with calm Venus moving into your health zone on March 1st, it's a good time to seek therapy or mental health assistance. Communication with your sweetheart could be adversely affected between March 5th and March 28th when Mercury is retrograde in your love zone - speak from the heart, however, and you can't go too far wrong. On March 6th, unpredictable Uranus arrives in your philosophy zone and signals a fairly abrupt change of heat for you on some key matters of faith, politics or ethics. That's OK - it takes a brave person to admit they may have been wrong in the past, and you're leading by example now. Sharing your new worldview will bring you great satisfaction, especially following a constructive Mars-Saturn trine on March 14th - you have much to teach the world.

Healing balm is on the way for your love life towards the end of the month, especially around March 22nd when the Sun conjuncts Chiron in your love zone. What doesn't break you brings you closer together and you will get through this and emerge stronger for it. Once Venus arrives in your love zone on March 26th, you'll be all set to make a fresh start together. Just as well, because Mars moves into your career zone on March 31st, signalling a very busy time ahead - and you'll have your partner's full support.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


Making changes to the family home? It could take a while for the family to agree, so expect some sulks and arguments on March 1st when Venus squares Uranus. However, with Venus shifting into your creative zone later that same day, you should be able to wow people with your vision for how your home should be. Don't give up - create the castle you want to live in. How much money you do or do not need or have - this is likely to be a central question during much of March, especially once unpredictable Uranus takes up residence in your debt zone on March 6th.

There are lessons to learn between now and 2026 about how much money should truly mean to you, but initially there could be disruption and some unpleasant surprises. Don't panic. A helpful trine between Saturn and Mars on March 14th will stabilize things. A beautiful Supermoon Full Moon on March 20th shines from your own sign and this will boost your confidence. Yes, you can handle what's coming.

Venus moves into your everyday work zone on March 26th, suggesting that any discord with colleagues or dissatisfaction over your working environment will dissipate - and this too will help to stabilize you financially. On March 31st, Mars focuses your drive on the urge to explore and to change, so be open to new ways of potentially making a living from this point forwards.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


Home and family are very much the focus this March. There are changes on the way and you sense that, but you're keen to create as calm and loving an environment as possible. With Venus arriving in your family zone on March 1st, indulge yourself in creature comforts and let your family do likewise. Mercury is retrograde in your risk zone between March 5th and March 28th, so creating a comfort zone you love is very important emotionally. On March 6th, Uranus, the rebel planet, arrives in your love zone, and will stay here until 2026.

This brings major changes in your relationship, but it's important to realize that you're still in control of what the changes are and how they manifest. An honest heart to heart talk with your lover is a good start and you'll be supported in this by an excellent Mars-Saturn trine on March 14th. So long as you keep talking, you can co-create the life you want from this point forwards, together. Even though Uranus' placement is certain to bring some disruption and perhaps a few nasty shocks too in these early days, your love life gets a boost from the arrival of Venus in your flirting zone on March 26th. Make your love life fun again - date your existing partner or spice up your life in the bedroom.

Do more, together, of whatever makes you smile. The month ends on a highly passionate note when Mars moves into your sex zone so abandon those inhibitions and get closer than ever before.

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


It's not easy to get your point across to your partner as March begins, and the Venus-Uranus square on March 1st highlights discord and disagreements. Fortunately, Venus shifts into your communication zone later that same day, which should ease the tension considerably - but you must keep talking! More communication issues may arise between March 5th and 28th, as during this time Mercury is retrograde in your family zone. Hold a family council each week to try to encourage everyone to share their feelings. You've always been restless, but with Uranus arriving in your routines zone, that restlessness may hit new heights this month.

A sudden urge to ditch your job or to abandon your other routines may kick in around March 6th and you'll struggle to ignore it. Hang on in there - Uranus is staying put until 2026 which is plenty of time to make calm, rational choices and decisions. You don't have to fix everything right now! A stabilizing trine between Mars and Saturn will help you to feel more in control after March 14th. Towards the end of the month, there is a great deal of love around you.

Venus moves into your family zone on March 26th and makes it a real joy to be around family members. On March 31st, Mars arrives in your love zone, boosting your passion and driving you to get closer than ever to your sweetheart - a lovely way to end the month.

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


It's not like you to spend, spend, spend, but you're certainly feeling freer with your money as March gets underway - aided by Venus' arrival in your finance zone. You'll want to spoil your loved ones now and you're keen to indulge in some luxury yourself too. Be careful when making large purchases however - Mercury is retrograde in your mind zone between March 5th and 28th, so you're not being particularly objective and you're not necessarily getting a good deal either. The arrival of Uranus, the rebel planet, in your risk zone is a shock to the system. From March 6th until 2026, you're going to be taking far more risks than you're used to, and this will probably panic you initially.

Calm down and enjoy the exhilaration. This is an extremely creative period of your life and the more you can embrace it, the more you'll grow. A helpful Mars-Saturn trine on March 14th shows you exactly how much you can benefit from taking a chance, so roll with it! If you're single and looking for love, look out for an intellectual connection rather than a physical one, especially following March 26th. Venus arrives in your mind zone on that date, so you may also find love via an intellectual hobby or a creative venture.

Don't narrow your options by being too focused on what you think is your "type".

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


Show your softer side as March begins. Venus arrives in your sign on March 1st, so it will be easier than normal to express your emotions - this is a very good thing! Try not to focus too much on money or material things for the first half of the month. With Mercury retrograde in this zone of your chart, there may be misunderstandings over minor financial inconveniences, but it's nothing to get stressed about. Of rather more importance is the arrival of unpredictable Uranus in your family zone on March 6th.

This energy will bring shocks and surprises between now and 2026 and many of them will be pleasant - initially, however, you may feel rather lost at sea. There could be difficult news regarding the home, or an unsettling change to your family circumstances, perhaps brought about via someone's career. Things will take time to adjust, so don't be impatient. A constructive trine between Mars and Saturn on March 14th should provide some reassurance. It will be OK, especially once the Supermoon Full Moon on March 20th helps you to expand your horizons.

On March 26th, Venus shifts into your finance zone. With the Mercury retrograde finally over, you can now focus on increasing your income, but it's important that you also relax a little and treat yourself to some luxuries. Live a little! With Mars arriving in your play zone on March 31st, you must have plenty of ideas on how to spend!

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


Feeling the need to retreat? Privacy and peace are important to you this March, so grab plenty of alone time wherever you can. With a difficult Venus-Uranus square on March 1st, crowds are too difficult for you to handle and could be emotionally draining. Venus shifts into your spiritual zone later that same day, reinforcing your need to meditate or to spend some time on your own. Mercury will be retrograde in Pisces between March 5th and 28th, this is another cosmic ingredient which makes you feel less sociable than normal.

Uranus arrives in your communication zone on March 6th and will stay here until 2026. New knowledge will be extremely important to you at this time, and it's the perfect time to take up a new study course. Don't be surprised to find your interests constantly changing or that you get bored much faster than normal. Change up your routine and step out of your intellectual comfort zone. The more you can diversify and learn in these coming years, the greater your potential for the future will be.

On March 26th, Venus arrives in your own sign and your need to be alone recedes considerably. This is a good time to reach out to your friends and to re-join the social whirl - you will have been missed. It's also a good moment to look at your home and your domestic environment; if changes need to be made, Mars' arrival in your home zone on March 31st will be an ideal catalyst.

2018

Possibly the biggest astrological news of 2018 is likely to be the arrival of Uranus in Taurus, in May; the last time Taurus hosted Uranus was during the Great Depression, ahead of the Second World War. The rebel planet’s sign change suggests a major world shift may occur in realms traditionally associated with Taurus, such as the earth, the environment and the financial system – and such a change is unlikely to happen smoothly. Once Uranus turns retrograde in August, change imposed too quickly from above could lead to protests and even violence. Three squares between aggressive Mars and Uranus, in May, August and September, are potential flashpoints to take seriously.

The upheaval associated with Uranus’s sign change may however be softened by two beautiful trines between Jupiter and Neptune, in May and August. This energy brings great generosity of spirit, and a collective sense of spirituality and justice which may help us to “do the right thing” even when choices are tough.

Another anchor in a potentially turbulent year is the grand trine aspect in August between the Virgo Sun, Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. The earth sign energies involved here bring common sense to the debate, and act as a catalyst for sensible change, rather than headlong chaos. It’s interesting that this grand trine involves Uranus, a planet associated with the future, and Saturn, a planet associated with the past: perhaps we can after all build a bridge between what has already happened and what has yet to happen, given goodwill on all sides.

Aries (March 20th - April 19th)


Overview

What are friends for? Quite a lot, if you’re an Aries in 2018. There’s a strong emphasis on your friendship zone throughout this year, and most particularly in the second half of 2018. Expect to find your social life becoming increasingly important, with friends rallying round to support you through your lower points and to cheer on your successes too.

There’s an adventurous vibe to your year too. As Uranus turns direct in Aries in January, you start to feel back on safer ground after a tumultuous 2017. You being you, however, safer ground gets boring after a while, so the search for new challenges begins. March should be the perfect month for taking on more than you ever previously dared, when Mars, your ruling planet, teams up with ahead-of-its-time Uranus to push the boundaries, inspiring you to dream big. Don’t go crazy, though. Your urge to show off makes you your own worst enemy in July, when the Sun opposes Mars and highlights risks which could prove unwise or even dangerous.

Overall, this is a year for growing on a personal level, and for seeking out fresh, new and exciting projects. A word of caution: watch your temper in May, August and September, when your ruler Mars squares up to Uranus, promising fireworks and drama which you may not always be able to control.

Love

If you’re single and looking for love, March brings about opportunities to meet someone very interesting. The second Full Moon that month falls in your love zone, so any new attraction may develop very quickly, taking your breath away for all the right reasons! If you’re already in a stable relationship, compromise is likely to be important. This is not a year for getting your own way – at least, not all the time. During the Venus retrograde period in October, it’s especially important to listen to your sweetheart, and to actively seek win-win solutions which work for you both.

However fresh or established your relationship, expect your mutual spiritual understanding to deepen considerably in December, when Mars your ruler teams up with gentle, romantic Neptune. A sense of having met before will underpin any new relationships formed at this time; if you’ve been together for some while, you may find yourself suddenly realizing that your destiny has been linked through previous lifetimes as well as this one.

For those who are feeling unlucky in love, or going through a rough period in a relationship, friends are important in saving your sanity. With so much activity in your friendship zone, be sure to make time for your own friendships, even when you and your sweetheart are loved up and intent on spending time together. Maintaining your own identity and your own social links will help you to feel strong – and loved – no matter what the future holds.

Work

Feeling lucky? You should be! A fortunate break comes your way in January, as Mars and Jupiter combine to bring about financial or business success. Keep your eyes open for new opportunities at this time, and don’t be afraid to take a leap of faith. Importantly, however, keep a grip on your spending. Other parts of the year may be more troublesome than this early period, and you’ll need to hold something in reserve, financially.

One such trickier period is April and May. In April, serious, sober Saturn and disruptive Pluto both turn retrograde in your career zone. For a time, it may feel as though your luck has run out, and there could be obstacle after obstacle in your path. Hang on in there. This isn’t your fault, and there’s nothing you could or should have done differently to avoid it. You are simply being tested and stretched. As Uranus moves into your money zone in May, the surprises continue, and unexpected bills are highly likely.

Fortunately, August sees Uranus turn retrograde for the rest of the year, giving you some breathing space to get back on track. Northern Hemisphere Summer vibes should also help sort out work-life balance issues, so that you can get more quality time with your family while still earning well and moving forwards in life. A Sun-Uranus opposition in October highlights how you use – or waste - your scarce resources. Figure out a budget, cut back on excess and take a more sensible approach to work and money. This new attitude will serve you very well indeed.

Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)


Overview

Buckle your seatbelt, Taurus, this year could be quite a ride! One of the galaxy’s biggest hitters, Uranus, is about to move into your sign, having spent the last seven years in Aries. The last time Uranus was in Taurus was over eighty years ago, so this big news indeed. When this shift happens in May, life may well be briefly turned upside down – but from the chaos, good things will emerge. Think of it as a learning curve; you don’t necessarily want this lesson, but looking back on it in later years you will most definitely be glad of the experience.

There are other major indications of change in your 2018 chart too. A grand trine in August occurs between the Sun in Virgo, Saturn in Capricorn and Uranus in your own sign – here the three earth signs join forces in a very positive way to embrace the new and to break free from the old. If you’ve felt stuck in a rut over the last couple of years, this will be music to your earthy ears. As a general rule, you don’t “do” change, but when you must, you like to get used to new situations gradually and constructively, and that’s exactly what this energy will bring.

All in all, 2018 looks to be a year which puts you in the driving seat, and allows you to make some very valuable changes to your life and your lifestyle. You won’t necessarily get it all your own way, however. Not for nothing is Uranus known as the Rebel Planet! When warrior Mars squares up to Uranus – three times, no less, in May, August and September – you may well feel as though you’re losing control and being buffeted by unseen forces. Hang on in there. The ship will stabilize, and you will be back in charge, right where you belong.

Love

Springtime in the Northern Hemisphere looks set to be a playful time for your love life. Whether you’ve been together for years or are just starting out, remember to make things fun. Re-ignite the spark, if necessary, and seek some spontaneity in romance. A helpful Full Moon in March should see passions smoulder, and this is a fantastic time for being swept off your feet!

As summer above the equator gets underway, however, be sure to appreciate what you have with your partner. With Jupiter turning retrograde in the most flirtatious zone of your chart, it’s all too easy for you to take your lover for granted, and perhaps even to look elsewhere. That would be a mistake. Be sure you know what you’re risking if you do decide to play away. There’s a sense here that romantic upsets may well be your own fault, so get good at apologizing, fast.

During August in particular, as Uranus turns retrograde in your sign, you may become bored of your sweetheart, especially if your relationship lacks sparkle and is well past that first flush of love. Fortunately, two beautiful trines between Jupiter and Neptune, one in May and one in August, help to remind you how much you have to lose and see you back on track. This year, it’s all about learning to value your sweetheart for what you already have together, rather than hankering after something else.

Work

The theme of change this year is very relevant in your working life. As well as Uranus moving into your sign, giving you the courage to try a surprising new direction, we also find go-getting Mars in your career zone for a good six months this year. Ambitions should be running high, but you may feel that you are being overlooked or not being given due credit for your work. If you feel that you have outgrown your position or that you are not being appreciated, by all means look to move on.

Most of the year is favorable for job hunting and for success in interviews and tests. Expect to reach a major decision on this front in July or August, perhaps prompted by the Lunar Eclipse in your career zone early in July. Something may happen which forces your hand, or which makes you more determined than ever to try something different. However, your confidence may take a bit of a hit at the same time, particularly when Mars is retrograde, during July and August. The Northern Hemisphere’s spring and fall are therefore the best times for making your move.

One slight word of caution: beware of coming across as too quirky or unconventional during May, August and September. At this time, Mars squares up to Uranus and these two strong-willed planets are not working in your favor. Tone down the rule breaking during these periods, and work hard on presenting a professional, approachable, trustworthy image.

Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)


Overview

Astrologically speaking, 2018 is set to be a relatively quiet year for the Twins. A key theme will involve you balancing your desire to settle into a routine against your desire for adventure and change – because, as ever, you’re unlikely to make up your mind firmly on exactly what you want. A lot of planetary activity this year takes place in your higher education zone, so perhaps you can calm your wandering mind with a course of study or a new qualification of some kind.

In May, Uranus, the planet of surprise and rebellion, moves into your spiritual zone, where it will stay for the next several years. Don’t be surprised to find that you no longer feel quite at home in your current faith, and don’t be afraid to ask difficult questions and to explore your spirituality. There are no right or wrong answers, because the search for answers is the journey in itself. Be aware that family or friends may be unsettled by your changing beliefs, and this could cause some arguments in May, August or September – this is when Mars squares up to Uranus, so deeply held convictions will resist challenge or change.

Overall, it’s a year for learning and growing, and for expanding your mind and your spiritual horizons. A Lunar Eclipse in July could signal a sudden need for excitement, so expect a crazy couple of weeks sandwiched in-between periods of calmer, quieter progress.

Love

Passionate Mars spends the early part of the year in your love zone, so you can expect your relationship to be warm, spontaneous and a lot of fun. If you’re single, the first three months of 2018 are the ideal time for dating – but don’t set out with a preconceived idea of your perfect partner. Let things evolve and unfold. The last three months of the year are less helpful for single Geminis, as Venus turns retrograde. Turn to friendships and family instead, and stop trying too hard.

In an existing relationship, there’s a delicate balancing act to tread in February when career and work issues may eat into time available for love. Mars squares up to Neptune at this time, putting romance on the back burner, much to someone’s displeasure. A Full Moon in March could mark a rise in tensions at home, probably related to this work-life balance issue, but any ensuing argument will help to clear the air so that you can get back on track.

Watch out for control and jealousy issues in April, when Mars conjuncts Saturn in the sexiest part of your chart. Avoid using intimacy as a weapon, or being overly suspicious of your partner. Honesty and openness will help to avoid too much tension at this time.

Work

It’s a nose to the grindstone year – how much hard work are you prepared to put in? Financially, 2018 could be a little stretched, so you may find yourself needing or wanting to look at side hustles to increase your income. A Full Moon in your money zone in early January may mark a shock to the system; this is followed in June and July by two tricky oppositions from the Sun to Saturn and Pluto respectively, both of which indicate financial restraint, belt-tightening and perhaps some losses. The good news, however, is that this financial trouble is likely to inspire and motivate you, rather than scare you. You’ve got this.

You’re starting the year as you mean to go on, with a brilliant Mars-Jupiter conjunction in your daily work zone, which provides you with plenty of go-getting energy, and a rather nice helping of luck and good fortune too. So, whatever it is that the Full Moon brings, you’ll fight back. Good for you. Some of the fight back may involve having to knuckle down in a job you don’t really enjoy. When Jupiter turns retrograde in your daily work zone in March, you’ll be hanging on in there regardless, determined to stick it out.

Your tenacity and perseverance will pay off. Bountiful Jupiter joins forces with idealistic Neptune twice, in May and August, to boost both your ideas and your prospects. Even if finances are up and down, you look to be staying positive and upbeat, which will attract better fortunes your way. As the year closes in December, an excellent Mars-Neptune conjunction in your career zone indicates work which is both lucrative and fulfilling. Don’t give up on pursuing that dream job.

Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)


Overview

You’ve spent a lot of time in recent years focusing on other people’s happiness and success, whether that’s at work or within your family and circle of friends. This year, it’s time to take care of yourself better, and to pay closer attention to your most intimate relationship. Batten down the hatches, and turn inwards to focus on what matters most.

The tone for 2018 is set early, with a powerful Full Moon in your own sign in January. This energy encourages you to be more assertive about your own wants and needs, and to learn the gentle art of saying “no” to others. It’s important in these first few months of the year to keep your private life private; the more you open up to others, the more helpful “advice” they will have, which will only serve to confuse you.

Travel beckons this year, especially as a tool for broadening your horizons and expanding your interests. In May and August in particular, two beautiful trines between your passion zone and your travel zone bring opportunities to discover something – or someone – to love. New experiences will enrich your life at any point this year, so don’t be afraid to take on new challenges. You have more courage than you know.

Love

Of all areas of your life, it’s your love life which will need the closest attention in 2018. A promising Mars-Jupiter conjunction in your passion zone heats up the temperature in January, but as the northern spring arrives, there are signs that your relationship may need some TLC. From April to September, both Saturn and Pluto are retrograde in your love zone, indicating power struggles and a real clash of wills. When Mars conjuncts Saturn in April, frustrations could come to a head.

The northern summer months are a time of re-assessment in your love life. That’s not as scary as it sounds. In an established relationship, intimacy issues will need some work during the Mars retrograde period in June, July and August. During this same period, the Cancer Sun opposes first Saturn and then Pluto in your love zone, so it’s important to put your own ego aside in order to listen to your partner and to acknowledge any problems. Turning a blind eye to relationship niggles will only make things worse, but with open and honest communication, the healing process can quickly get underway.

By the time October arrives, loving Venus is retrograde in your passion zone. Sounds like a bad thing, but actually this is one retrograde which you can embrace. This energy helps you to appreciate what and who you already have. Spend October and November re-imagining your relationship, ready to re-light the spark which drew you together in the first place. Perhaps it’s time for a second honeymoon?

Work

Financially, life looks set to be pretty stable during 2018, and you should be able to maintain or improve your current standard of living. There are some question marks, however, around what exactly you do to earn a living, and whether or not you could and should be doing something more emotionally satisfying. February is a good month to explore this: a square between Mars in your everyday work zone and idealistic Neptune in your philosophy zone highlights your humanitarian instincts. Could you take a sideways move into work which you might find more meaningful or worthwhile?

Ponder on that, but hold on a few months before you make the move. During March and April, Mercury is retrograde in your career zone, so these are not the best months for job hunting or for selling your skills. It is the perfect time for incubating ideas, however, so you can plan where you would like to be and find a way to get there. An inspirational trine between Mars and innovative Uranus will help you find an unusual angle or an ahead-of-its-time concept to run with. Work which combines technology with a social conscience will be especially rewarding for you this year.

The travel vibe I mentioned earlier is relevant to your working life too, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself traveling for work purposes. During May and August in particular, insight into other countries and cultures could help a great deal in terms of moving forwards in your career.

Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)


Overview

2018 is a very family focused year for you, Leo. You’ll feel a strong desire to put down or deepen your roots, and you’ll want to spend as much time as possible with your nearest and dearest. If you are hoping to expand the family, a fantastic Mars-Jupiter conjunction in January suggests a new arrival could be on the way. Whether we’re talking baby or hamster here, you’re sure to have lots of love to give and lots of nurturing to do during the coming twelve months.

There are some definite surprises in store for your family life, however – especially with bountiful Jupiter in residence in your family zone for a good part of the year. 2018 could mark a turning point in family life, perhaps with a move to a bigger home, or to a smaller one if older kids are leaving the nest. There may be births, engagements or other excitement you weren’t expecting, but most of the surprises bring definite reasons to smile.

Be careful with your words from August onwards. Mercury turns retrograde in your sign and Uranus, the rebel planet, also retrogrades; this allows the surprises to settle and for a “new normal” to be established, but someone may be misinterpreting what you say or do, in a bid to create mischief. Stand your ground and be as open as possible in your communication style.

Love

Your closest relationship will benefit from the overall loving and family focused vibe this year. However, there are periods of the year where your work-life-family balance is out of synch with your partner, and this could cause some frustrations.

A square between passionate Mars and idealistic Neptune in February gives the first hint that one or both of you are wearing rose tinted glasses, and perhaps ignoring brewing discontent over family time. When Mars moves onto square volatile Uranus – three times, in May, August and September – the problem can no longer be ignored and tempers are likely to flare. In May, the Sun in your career zone opposes happy Jupiter in your family zone, indicating that something has to give. A Lunar Eclipse in your love zone in July may also suggest a crisis point.

Don’t panic. The key is to put ego aside and to find a compromise within your relationship, especially over each other’s careers and working life. The cosmos comes to your aid in this during August and September. In June, with idealistic Neptune turning retrograde, realism gets a bolder grip; with warrior planet Mars also turning retrograde, you have a chance to put conflict aside and to reach pragmatic solutions. By the time December arrives, your work-life balance should be much better and relationship tensions will have eased accordingly. Mars conjuncts romantic Neptune at this time in one of the most passionate areas of your chart, so it looks likely that you will end 2018 on a healing, loving and tender note.

Work

Your career looks likely to develop well in 2018, although as we have already seen, the time and attention you give to work could cause some frustrations in your home and family life. Overall, however, you are putting in a strong showing at work, and it seems likely that your leadership skills be will attracting praise. Innovative Uranus arrives in your career zone in May, where it will spend the next seven years or so – so this year could mark the start of a new chapter in your working life.

Unfortunately, not everyone is pleased for you. In April especially, work place jealousy or resentment is likely to cause some problems. Taskmaster Saturn and power-hungry Pluto are both retrograde in your everyday work zone at this time, and when Mars conjuncts Saturn, tempers at work may flare. Colleagues are likely to prove spiky and unreasonable at times – the best way to handle this is to keep your cool and simply get on with your job. Leave the office politics to those with time to waste.

A much more positive cosmic event is the grand trine in August, which takes place between the Sun in your money zone, Saturn in your everyday work zone and Uranus in your career zone – this should help with an innovative solution to the work-life balance issue, and may also set you off in an entirely new career direction. Exciting times lie ahead!

Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)


Overview

You’re starting 2018 in a very settled mode, Virgo – but perhaps a little bit too settled? You’re well within your comfort zone, but you get the sense that you’re simply treading water a lot of the time. All this is about to change, so put your brave pants on and start looking toward the future.

The first rumblings of change are likely to coincide with March’s Full Moon in your own sign. Suddenly, life looks a little bit samey, a little bit boring, and you’ll start to cast around for ways of switching things up. Come May, when Uranus arrives in your exploration zone, you’ll definitely notice itchy feet and a desire to challenge yourself. Trouble is, being an earth sign, you have a love-hate relationship with change of any kind. A tricky Mars-Uranus square occurs three times this year, in May, August and September, and each time you’ll struggle to reconcile your desire for change with your love of the status quo. Watch out during these periods for an urge to throw it all away and start again.

July is likely to bring something of a wakeup call in terms of your health and wellbeing, especially with the Lunar Eclipse in your health zone. It’s a fabulous time to look into your diet and exercise regime, and to start putting your own needs first. After a bumpy ride during the first half of 2018, you’ll become more comfortable with the pace of change from August onwards, when an earthy grand trine aspect helps you to be your own catalyst for change, rather than merely tolerating it.

Love

If your relationship is floundering, it won’t be helped by family interference in February, when a difficult Mars-Neptune square finds you being given deliberately misleading counsel on affairs of the heart. The northern hemisphere’s spring may also bring some tricky vibes, with Mars and Saturn going head to head in your passion zone, reigning in mutual attraction and making dating anyone new very tough going indeed.

The good news is that May and August could potentially be very special months for your love life. In both months, creative Jupiter trines romantic Neptune, suggesting that you’ll find a new or renewed creative and intellectual attraction with someone very interesting indeed. In June, Neptune turns retrograde in your love zone, highlighting karmic and spiritual links between you and your lover; you’ve known one another before, and it shows, in a good way.

The second half of the year is much better than the first for love and romance, although take care in September to stay grounded. An opposition between the Virgo Sun and Neptune suggests that idealism and escapism in love may be turning those glasses not just rose tinted but positively vivid pink. Keep it real. That way, as the end of the year rolls round, you’ll be able to enjoy a passionate Mars-Neptune conjunction in your love zone. This is what you’ve been waiting for, as your relationship moves to new and special heights.

Work

The first half of 2018 finds you going through the motions at work. You’re earning money, sure, but it’s very much “just a job” and not really lighting your fire. When colleagues become difficult or working conditions become uncomfortable in June, July and August, you may decide that enough is enough. Mars is retrograde in your everyday work zone at this time, so motivation to make that change is low, even though you’re not happy. However, in July a Sun-Mars opposition helps you to pluck up both the courage and the energy to make some changes.

August’s grand trine involves the Virgo Sun, Saturn and Uranus, all working together, creating exciting new work prospects for you – crucially with the opportunity to use your considerable creative abilities. Whatever you’re trained in and whatever career path you’re currently following, it’s stifling you. Look around and see what makes your heart beat a little bit faster. Follow your inspiration to unearth new job opportunities which could be tailor-made for your skills.

Don’t necessarily expect a new direction to pay off instantly, however. As Venus turns retrograde in your money zone in October and November, you may well end up taking a pay cut in order to get this new job or new venture off the ground. It’s a sacrifice, but it’s temporary. Hang on in there, because when you’re doing something you love, the rewards will come.

Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)


Overview

Families can be funny things. Yours has been on quite the journey in recent years, but this has created a lot of baggage. During 2018 your family dynamics are set to change for the better, and this is also a year for forgiveness. Forgiving someone important for the wrong they have done to you frees up your emotional energy for healing and for moving forwards, so don’t hesitate to be magnanimous. You can afford to be, as you’re working from a position of emotional strength.

These energies get underway with a bang in April, when serious Saturn and power-hungry Pluto both turn retrograde in your family zone; at the same time, Mars goes head to head with Saturn, in an emotional tug of war from which there can be no winner. This could be a difficult period, but it’s important to remember that in life, everything changes. Nothing ever stays the same. Try to adapt to the changes and indeed, welcome them. You cannot cling to the past.

Things will get much easier in the northern summer months. August’s grand trine is a hugely positive indicator of emotional healing and these energies will prove to you that you can learn from the past, and that yes, you can forgive, if not forget. You’ll end the year with a sense of family togetherness. Although much water passes under the bridge this year, you still understand that you’ve got one another’s backs.

Love

Your love life may be experiencing a rough patch as the year gets underway, not helped by Mercury’s retrograde period at the end of March and into April – it could be difficult to get your words out, or to say what’s really in your heart. However, there’s a new lease of life coming in May, when rebellious Uranus arrives in the sexiest part of your chart, ushering in several adventurous months for your sexuality and your private life.

Whether this is your existing relationship being spiced up, or a brand new and very intense love affair, it will certainly make you smile. Be careful not to take things too far, however. In May, and again in August and September, passionate Mars squares up to Uranus, indicating tempestuous jealousy and the possibility of someone using sex as a weapon or as emotional blackmail. Steady on. Things may come to a head during a Lunar Eclipse in your passion zone in July; watch out for a moment which changes everything. With Mars turning retrograde around this time, it’s important to realize that some things are simply beyond your control.

Once Uranus turns retrograde in August, the intensity should start to lessen, which will be good for your nerves if nothing else! During the second half of the year, karmic and psychic links between you and your lover become more and more prominent, so you’ll end 2018 with a much deeper level of understanding than you thought possible.

Work

Although 2018 begins with your finances and career in reasonable shape, there could be some surprises in store. January’s lucky and creative Mars-Jupiter conjunction occurs in your money zone, so unexpected opportunities to make some money are very welcome. However, once Jupiter turns retrograde in March, money starts to be frittered away at a rather alarming rate. In June and July, you may come under pressure to lend money to a family member, or to bail out a kid in trouble. You’ll feel duty bound to help, even if it’s against your better judgement – and this could be expensive.

A new business venture or new job in the early northern hemisphere springtime starts well enough, but do rein in the risks you are taking. You may be over-reaching, either in terms of your ability or your finances. Don’t be tempted to bluff your way through, as you will be caught out. There’s better news in August, when a lovely Jupiter-Neptune trine indicates a bettering of your position, helped by your imaginative and creative pitch about what you’re worth.

Through sheer hard work and talent, you should be able to survive this year, even with family pressures, but do take expert advice with your finances. This is especially important in October, when a Sun-Uranus opposition suggests that your ego may get in the way of your financial or business judgement. Provided you can keep your spending and your risk-taking under control, you should end 2018 in a stronger position than you started – you’re heading in the right direction.

Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)


Overview

How’s your health, Scorpio? Yes, your physical health is good. Great. But what about your mental health? During 2018, you’re being asked to take a good look at your emotional equilibrium and mental wellbeing, and to make some adjustments to help you truly feel at your best. It’s a slightly unpredictable year, with lots of planetary activity in and around your sign, but one thing I do know for sure is that 2018 is a great opportunity for your personal growth.

The year begins on a high, with a fantastic Mars-Jupiter conjunction in your sign, which boosts your confidence and enhances your personal image. This is take-on-the-world stuff, so don’t waste it! By the time March arrives, however, Jupiter is turning retrograde in Scorpio, and your sparkle becomes a little dimmed. There may be further blips and dips in your confidence later in the year too, especially in October, when personable Venus turns retrograde in your own sign, and in early December, when communicative Mercury does likewise.

However, interspersed with these down times, there are opportunities for you to work on yourself and to regain the upper hand. Sometimes you are your own worst enemy, but if you can practice positive habits at the beginning of the year and again mid-year, you will shore up your own self-belief, allowing you to make the most of the year’s more reflective periods for growth and self-understanding.

Love

In May, Uranus, the most rebellious and freedom-loving planet of all, arrives in your love zone, where it will stay for the next seven years or so. This is the beginning of a new era in your personal life – and the first stages may be quite shocking, unsettling or dramatic. In May and again in August and September, warrior planet Mars squares up to Uranus, pitting your love life against your family life in a series of uncomfortable showdowns. Don’t be surprised to find your blood family aghast at your relationship, and doing their best to interfere.

This theme of family interference is likely to continue through the northern summer. When Mars turns retrograde in your family zone between June and August, things may come to a head. In July, there is a potent Lunar Eclipse in your family zone, which may indicate a point of no return for one side of the argument. Stay calm, and do what is right for you.

Fortunately, from August onwards, the situation quietens down a little. Uranus turns retrograde in your love zone, reminding you that “normal” is good. Find peace in everyday life with your sweetheart and stop looking for the next fight. Apart from a difficult Sun-Uranus opposition in October, when your selfish streak may cause trouble in love, the signs are that the rest of the year will allow the dust to settle; you’ll find your feet slowly and your relationship will be all the stronger for what it has survived.

Work

Creativity at work goes hand in hand this year with a rather impulsive streak, which is quite unlike you. To successfully harness and develop your brilliant ideas, you’ll need patience and staying power, and the will to wait for the right moment. Mars and Uranus drive forwards innovation and invention in March, helping you find surprising solutions to old problems. Optimistic Jupiter in your sign gets an imaginative boost from Neptune in May and August, so these are also ripe times for creating a new venture or for marketing yourself well in your existing career - provided you don’t rush in without due care.

However, a difficult Mars-Neptune square in February activates your money zone and your risk zone. Hasty decisions on finances could come back to haunt you this year. Mercury turns retrograde in your career zone in August, so you may need to take a step back at this time. Plan your future path by all means, but don’t push ahead foolishly at a moment when the risks are too high. In November, reckless Mars squares up to Jupiter, again activating your money and risk zones, so watch out for someone who encourages you to throw caution to the wind, yet remains safely protected themselves.

If you can develop an instinct for good timing, there is much this year to suggest very satisfying career progress. Work to your own agenda and your own pace, and don’t allow yourself to be rushed. When the world is ready for you, you’ll know!

Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)


Overview

If there’s one message being shouted loud from the cosmos towards you this year, it’s this: stop coasting. You have been sitting back for a while now, reasonably comfy in your status quo but not really going places. This year, it’s time to make more and better use of your talents, and to push yourself well and truly out of your comfort zone.

Early on in the year, around February, you may face the weight of unrealistic family expectations, especially in how much you are expected to care for others. With warrior planet Mars in your own sign at this time, a clash with idealistic Neptune could lead to a lot of resentment or guilt. Make sacrifices where appropriate, but don’t allow other family members to escape their share of the responsibility. Between March and July, Jupiter turns retrograde in the most spiritual sector of your chart. This could be a time of spiritual crisis, and that sense of guilt is still hanging around your shoulders. Whether you have a particular faith or not, talk to those around you who share the same beliefs, and listen to the advice you receive.

It's in the northern summer where you will really feel the push to stretch yourself. A Lunar Eclipse in July highlights your education and training. Should you go back to school for a while? With Mars retrograde in your learning zone, the focus is on what you don’t yet know. Expand your mind. Take on more. Learn and grow. That’s where you’ll find true satisfaction.

Love

Communication doesn’t always come easily this year, especially with those you love the most. While family pressures mount, Mercury turns retrograde in your passion zone in March, so making time for your sweetheart proves difficult. The good news is that a fiery and flirtatious Mars-Uranus trine during this time heats things up nicely. You may not have much time together, but what time you do have you can certainly put to good use! Flirting and date nights will strengthen and shore up your closest relationship, helping to keep that sparkle alive.

If you’re single and looking for love, don’t look too far afield. The special someone you seek is probably right under your nose. A colleague, friend or casual acquaintance may suddenly become so much more, if only you open your eyes and realize what’s staring you in the face.

Whether you’re in an established relationship or not, the northern winter months look sure to be cozy. A beautiful Mars-Neptune conjunction in December is highly romantic. Occurring primarily in your family zone, this influence will also soften the family tensions which have been around all year, freeing up more time for you to spend with your absolute favorite person.

Work

This year is not without its financial challenges. You never know, though. Perhaps this is fate’s way of jolting you into action. Get up off that sofa and get working! A Full Moon in March in your career zone may well be the trigger for events during March which leave you needing to work some financial magic. With both Saturn and Pluto retrograde in your money zone between April and September, this is easier said than done. However, unpredictable Uranus arrives in your everyday work zone in May, bringing flashes of genius and off-the-wall ideas which might just succeed. Don’t overlook your crazier notions. There is gold within.

In May and again in August, help is at hand from a family member or close personal friend. Bountiful Jupiter trines imaginative Neptune at these times, so listen to those closest to you for inspiration and advice on your career or business. Although your creativity may feel blocked in June, during a tricky Sun-Saturn opposition, you do have what it takes to get a new venture off the ground now.

An earthy grand trine in August activates your career, money and everyday work zones, and surrounds you with positive, sensible, can-do energy. This is the time to get to grips with any financial or career problems, and to make a fresh start where necessary. New plans made at this time stand an excellent chance of success. Keep moving forwards and remember: if it’s difficult, it’s probably worth doing!

Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)


Overview

With lots of emotions swirling around you, 2018 looks set to be a sensitive and thoughtful year for you, Capricorn. You sense that you are at a turning point in life, which makes you anxious and slightly fearful. The planets this year may bring you concern and worries, but you’ll also benefit from a huge amount of emotional support. Your loved ones come closer than ever, which is a blessing in trying times. You’re not always sure who you can trust, and this year does highlight those trust issues. Although one particular friend may let you down, however, you will discover that more people care than you knew.

The year begins with a blip in your confidence as Mars squares up to Neptune in February. Secrets may be revealed, or you might feel on edge for no real reason. Between March and July, jovial Jupiter is retrograde in your friends zone, so you are likely to feel lost at large gatherings, or unable to assert your identity within your social group. For a similar period, between April and September, Saturn – your ruler – and Pluto are both retrograde in your identity zone. Watch out for taking on too much at this time. People may take advantage of your good nature, and you may have to step away from someone who is using you.

When you feel anxious this year, try to find unusual or even eccentric solutions. Getting creative will help enormously. Once free-spirited Uranus moves into your leisure zone in May, new hobbies will build both your confidence and your social network.

Love

Your romantic life is calm and ordered as 2018 begins, and the status quo suits you just fine. There is some excitement to come, however, particularly in May, when rebel planet Uranus arrives in your passion zone. Trying hard to inject some pizazz and sparkle into your love life will pay dividends – don’t allow yourself to get into a rut with love. Be careful not to push too hard. In June and July there are hints of a stalemate between you and your lover, when the Sun opposes first Saturn and then Pluto in your own sign. If you have been together for some time, your sweetheart may not appreciate your sudden desire to recapture your dating days!

You’ll get the balance right in August, when an earthy grand trine aspect highlights your flirtatious side and your well-hidden adventurous nature. This is an excellent time for re-inventing your relationship with confidence and – crucially! – with the blessing of your partner too. Together you can start afresh, but it must be an equal partnership, not just you wanting to push for something different.

As the northern winter arrives, a lack of trust between you and your sweetheart could lead to some divisive arguments. As Mercury turns retrograde in your house of secrets, try to be more open with your lover. Share your darkest fears and your strangest dreams. Opening up will bring you closer; hiding from one another will increase the distance between you.

Work

The main issues with your career this year also revolve around trust, and around your willingness to take risks. You have big ideas and big ambitions, but somehow you often seem to lack the impetus to do anything about them. Motivation is tricky in May, August and September this year, when an awkward square between Mars and Uranus leads to you regretting an impulsive action at work. Once bitten, twice shy, so you will be correspondingly less willing to take another risk at another point in the year.

However, when it comes to risk, you can be your own worst enemy. As Mars turns retrograde in June in your money zone, being overly cautious with your money can be almost as bad as being too reckless with it. Expect a turning point in July during the Lunar Eclipse in this zone of your chart. Run your ideas past your partner, since your money and your future income is very much his or her business too. Try to seek expert advice about finances. Some careers advice or life coaching wouldn’t be a bad idea either – get help with crystalizing and clarifying your ambitions, and creating a step by step plan for achieving them.

A tense opposition between the Sun and Mars in July suggests a reluctance to share; it could be that a relative or friend asks you for help, but you’re not entirely sure you want to give it. Whether you’re being asked for money, contacts or hands-on help, think carefully. Decide whether to help or not based on what you know about this person and their trustworthiness, not based on duty or a desire to be seen to be doing the right thing.

Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)


Overview

2018 looks certain to bring many changes for you, Aquarius – but that’s a good thing, right? You hate it when life stays the same for too long. Lucky you: there’s not much chance of that this year! Much of the change is set to be in and around your family life, but you will also be re-thinking your career options and re-assessing your personal values.

Between April and September, serious Saturn and power-hungry Pluto are retrograde in your sacrifice zone. This means you’re unlikely to want to compromise, especially where your principles are involved. Rules are made to be broken at this time, and if someone pushes you, you’ll react by breaking even more. Freedom and individuality are always important to you, but now more than ever. You’ll ruffle feathers in your ongoing quest against authority. This is a year when you can make a difference and make your voice heard as an individual against the powers that be, but be sure that you’re fighting this fight for the right reasons.

Unconventional Uranus arrives in your family zone in May, and will stay here for the next seven years. When this planet turns retrograde in August, your very definitely non-standard family lifestyle comes under an uncomfortable spotlight. You can hack this, but can your loved ones? As Mars turns retrograde in your identity zone through July and August, you’ll need to pick your battles wisely with family members. Take them with you, don’t motivate them against you. The Lunar Eclipse in July may bring matters to a head here, so be prepared. The good news is that August’s grand trine is transformational for your family life and for your personal values too – so if you are looking to create a new lifestyle this will be when you start to break through.

Love

In your love life this year, be careful to avoid selfishness. A Lunar Eclipse in your love zone in January hints at the problem – you are very busy thinking about what you want and need, but you tend to just assume that your sweetheart feels likewise. They might not. Find out – ask! Just because your sweetie hasn’t created an argument about something does not mean that he or she fully supports the idea either. Talk about it!

In July, a tense opposition between the Sun and Mars indicates that you are likely to be still putting yourself first. You value independence within a relationship, which is fine – but within your partnership, you must show more respect for your partner’s feelings, ideas and wishes. It’s not that you don’t care; you’re simply so busy with and so excited by your own plans and ideas that you forget to find out if everyone is as on board as you are.

As Mercury turns retrograde in your love zone in August, communication problems may continue – but it’s during this time that family lifestyle issues are likely to resolve themselves, so keep on communicating, keep on opening the dialogue. You’ll get there. Given the changes coming to your family this year, it’s not surprising that there are tense moments. Going into this with a loving and open heart will do a lot to heal any wounds.

Work

After a fortunate career period over the last few years, things may seem to stagnate slightly in early 2018. Bountiful Jupiter is retrograde in your career zone between March and July, and this vibe asks you to question the point of your work. What does it mean? Does it make a difference? Does it fulfil you? If not, why not?

This soul searching over your means of income is something of a luxury, however, so don’t be surprised if your sweetheart becomes impatient or exasperated with you over it. In May, especially, an opposition between the Sun and Jupiter pits your career zone and your family zone against one another, so it’s safe to say that your plans may not at this stage enjoy the full support of your long-suffering other half.

He or she will start to come around to your way of thinking later in May, and again in August, when a delightful trine between Jupiter and imaginative Neptune paves the way for an increase in income – and one you can accept with good conscience too, as the ethics behind this extra work are sound. Don’t let this increase go to your head. When Neptune turns retrograde in your money zone between June and November, your “easy come, easy go” attitude to finance could bother more sensitive souls. Try to act with a little caution. Come December, a startlingly positive Mars-Neptune conjunction helps you to make more money AND feel good about it, as your career shifts into a more meaningful and spiritually aligned direction.

Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)


Overview

Looking for answers, Pisces? You’re right to search. You may not find all the answers in 2018, but your desire to seek them bodes well for your spiritual growth this year. Sometimes the energies around you this year will be a little bit vague and ephemeral, so don’t be surprised if you go through some periods of feeling emotional or anxious but without really knowing why. Your higher self is figuring things out, and that takes some time.

Intellectual Jupiter turns retrograde in your adventure zone in March, and in April, Saturn and Pluto do likewise in your objectives zone. Taken together, these influences spark a journey of the soul. You don’t know where you’re heading, but you sense the need to get going. During May and again in August, it’s important that you seek to be happy with yourself. Pay no heed to what others think of you. It’s not important. As Jupiter trines spiritual Neptune in your identity zone, the only thing that matters is your opinion of yourself.

Once your ruling planet Neptune turns retrograde in June, you may feel slightly lost and out of the loop. Warrior planet Mars also turns retrograde in your community zone, driving you to seek out those who feel the same way. Band together with like-minded souls and feel the power of togetherness. There is a Lunar Eclipse in July in the most spiritual part of your chart, which may take your breath away. Expect sudden spiritual insight, weird coincidences or a turning point in your spiritual life.

Love

If you’re single and looking for love, there’s good news. Your chances of meeting someone special are strong in July and August, when a retrograde Mars drives you to take shelter within your “tribe”, and among like-minded souls. Look there for a lover who truly understands you. In an established relationship, you will spend much of 2018 exploring your karmic and spiritual links. In July, for example, an imposing opposition between the ego-driven Sun and passion-driven Mars results in revelations about how you two met in a previous life, or what your joint soul mission might be.

The northern summer months are an inspirational time for your love life. August’s grand trine aspect activates your love zone and urges you to seek intellectual stimulation from your partner, and to step away from shallow physical attraction. It’s important to keep things grounded and real, however. In September, watch out for too much conflict-avoidance on your part. As the Sun opposes Neptune, you may be simply storing up problems for the future. If something needs to be discussed, talk about it now.

The Northern Hemisphere winter brings a beautiful conjunction between Mars and Neptune in your identity zone, which is a wonderful indicator of mesmerizing seasonal romance. The next holiday season should be one to remember for all the right reasons! Within an existing partnership, bring back the first flush of romance with plenty of poetry, music and romantic gestures.

Work

If your finances have been a bit stretched recently, January should bring a sigh of relief. Once rebel planet Uranus turns direct in your money zone, your income should start to bounce back nicely. However, be careful if your income depends upon your reputation – if you are a freelancer, for example, or someone well known in your industry. A difficult square between Mars and Neptune in February suggests disruption caused by a scandal of some kind. Be whiter than white, or be prepared to face the consequences!

After February onwards, your career takes a creative turn. Helped by a brilliant and inventive trine between Mars and Uranus, you’ll probably start to think outside the box, creating new ideas, new solution and new income streams. This would be a fantastic time to be involved in social media or online business ventures, or indeed with any kind of cutting edge tech. If you can blend the very modern with good old-fashioned courtesy and business ethics, you have a winning formula.

The notion of finding your spiritual tribe applies this year at work too. From April onwards, you may want to tighten your niche, and to look for work more closely connected to your heart. A new career in health, wellbeing, counselling or guidance of some kind would suit you perfectly. Don’t limit your dreams to the field where you already work. Go where your heart takes you!
