Astrology says 2018 is going to be a year of great big changes! Three major planets change signs in close succession — Saturn in Capricorn in December 2017, Chiron in Aries in April 2018 and Uranus in Taurus in May 2018 — and that’s a lot of changing goalposts… These major players set the scene for the fundamental global changes that are beginning to take shape and which will be fully embraced starting 2020. We also have five (instead of the usual four) eclipses, two of which will be blood moons (or total lunar eclipses!) — one in Leo end of January and the other in Aquarius end of July. The cheeky fifth eclipse happens in Cancer (also in July), giving us a taster of what’s to come and kicking off a life-changing three year period for opposite zodiac signs Capricorn and Cancer! To add to this melee, every planet that can go retrograde does! We have both Mars (spring-summer) and Venus (autumn) going retrograde in 2018, something that does not happen every year, alongside Mercury (of course: March-April, July-August, November-December) and all the outer planets. Talk about a big shake down on all levels! If you’re cowering in a corner by this point, don’t: lucky Jupiter is in Scorpio nearly all year long, where he thrives on change and intensity. With some help by the big players, Pluto and Neptune, Jupiter will empower you to take the bull by the horns and make the best of whatever’s going down. Saturn and Uranus are still within orb meanwhile, this time in earth signs, continuing their good work and helping you make tangible positive changes! By year's end Jupiter moves into its home sign Sagittarius, upping the luck quota for all zodiac signs!

Gemini 2018 Horoscope
Great news, dear Gemini! Party pooper Saturn finally leaves your relationship zone, where he’s been nagging you for 2-3 years now and you finally get some breathing space! You’ll feel that even more by the end of the year when lucky Jupiter gives relationships a helping hand! Your finances are the next major battleground so you’d better start giving some serious thought to your financial involvements with people and institutions. Uranus awakens your intuition so use it!

Cancer 2018 Horoscope
You’re approaching a period of major changes and life decisions, dear Cancer, with the eclipses soon to be in your sign. Things are about to get serious relationship wise! Will you tie the knot / go into business together? Or will you part ways? Take your time to decide. Jupiter makes you lucky in love (and speculation), while Uranus is about to introduce you to all sorts of exciting people - your people, giving you a variety of options! This is also a year of important financial decisions. You'll be glad to know that after years of career instability and pressure at work, you could soon find yourself stepping into a role of guru, teacher or mentor for others.

Leo 2018 Horoscope
You’re on a rollercoaster of personal and relationship changes, dear Leo, with the eclipses firmly in your zodiac sign in 2018! January could see a total personal transformation and by the time for your next birthday you’ll be ready to change your relationship landscape too! You’ll have much more fun this year because Saturn finally leaves your house of love, lifting any pressure, seriousness and fear around love matters. Phew! Work is about to get serious by contrast, with lots of unexpected surprises... It’s time to experiment career-wise and make important lifestyle changes in the years to come.
Virgo 2018 Horoscope
Exciting travel lies ahead, dear Virgo! Maybe these are physical journeys to far away places or exciting new learning curves instead - in publishing, international business or academia. You’ve been stuck home for too long, trying to secure your life’s foundations and it’s time to spread your wings. Family responsibilities start to lift and you can focus more on love, fun and personal self-expression. Financially, you’ve been on a roller-coaster and that too begins to wind down. You’re not out of the woods yet and you’d do well to hire a financial guru to help you sort matters out. Remember: travel, writing / speaking and communications of all kinds are lucky for you in 2018!
Libra 2018 Horoscope
You’d better get on top of your joint finances this year, dear Libra, whilst lucky Jupiter is on your side! Uranus is about to turn things on their head in all your financial dealings and Saturn will narrow your focus on your home, security base and family situation — a trend that is here to stay, so get serious! But that’s not to say 2018 is devoid of love. It’s a fun, sociable year and with Uranus leaving your relationship zone, you can finally stop having to babysit unreasonable people. Fancy throwing in your lot with a wise mentor instead? You can think your love life over soon after your birthday, when your ruler Venus is retrograde.
Scorpio 2018 Horoscope
2018 is your year, dear Scorpio! Jupiter is in your sign, crowning you the luckiest sign of all and nothing can change that! And there’s more good news: Saturn finally leaves your money house, where its been strangling financial flow, and you can start making more money again - a trend that will only get better by the end of 2018! Relationship-wise, things are about to get really exciting. Your partner might initiate changes that scare you initially but which could refresh your relationship. Or you could suddenly find yourself extremely popular or even in the public eye! Your career reorientation is completed in 2018 and you’ll be working hard to expand your influence in the coming years through publicity, trade and communications.
Sagittarius 2018 Horoscope
Saturn leaves your sign at last, dear Sagittarius! Your life has been tough, turned on its head since the end of 2014, and you may have been left stripped of many things you took for granted by now. Nonetheless, you're also stronger for it! Saturn left a nugget of something solid behind, a core sense of self, and it’s time to start building from that - both your self-esteem and your financial future, that is. This latter is something that will concern you more and more over the coming years. Planning to build an empire? Help is at hand! Jupiter enters your sign November 2018, bringing amazing lucky breaks with it to get you started! Till then? Experiment a little work wise. New technologies might well be the way forward for you in coming years.
Capricorn 2018 Horoscope
A party of major dignitaries is slowly gathering in your sign and if anyone is able to carry off such a big summit, it’s you, dear Capricorn! You’re to host the big 2020 triple conjunction of Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn that will set the tone for the next forty years (yes, you heard right!) and your ruler, Saturn, is already here to make preparations. Something big is cooking. And you’re coming into your own! 2018 is when you’ll take a long hard look at yourself and your goals and make sure that the two are perfectly aligned. Out the window goes anything not with the program! Major financial decisions are still up for grabs this year. Love-wise, Uranus is making you restless and up for a little romance on the side... Careful! The eclipses are soon to turn relationships on their head!
Aquarius 2018 Horoscope
Out with the old and in with the new, dear Aquarius! 2018 starts with a total lunar eclipse in your relationship zone, preparing you for a whole new relationship chapter and, come the summer, you’re ready to carry out the same upgrade on yourself! With Mars retrograde in your sign in spring-summer, you’ll be heavily involved in a project, making improvements. But try not to burn the candle at both ends. The area where you can expect changes this year is your home life and overall life-style - a trend here to stay. This could mean a move, an unusual living situation or surprising events around your family that need your attention. Your career shines brightly all year long, under Jupiter’s lucky beams and you could see your stature rise exponentially!
Pisces 2018 Horoscope
It’s a lucky, lucky year for you, dear Pisces, as Jupiter urges you to spread your wings and fly! Travel and learning opportunities abound and it looks like your responsibilities are finally letting off a little too, allowing you to enjoy the fruits of your labors. It’s now all about establishing yourself as a pillar in the community, something that will take all your energy in years to come. This is also the year to start thinking about a more mature and integrated approach to your finances - a less flippant, more holistic approach. They say curiosity killed the cat but in your case, it might lead to a brilliant, innovative idea or two. Indulge at will!
