A new year begins, and with it the opportunity to create happy new situations in your life! Some major planetary changes that happened in the last quarter of 2017 are creating themes in 2018. First, this promises to be a soulful year for you. Lucky, abundant Jupiter entered your house of intimacy and bonding back in October and will remain there into November of this year. This is a major development as Jupiter hasn’t been in this part of your chart in over a decade.
Getting closer to a lover, finding a new one, creating a better sex life and even having a baby are all possible while Jupiter tours this part of your chart. Truth be told, the independent ram may not be used to all of this commitment, so this could represent a bit of a challenge for you. But you’re up for it and the results will be worth it.
This house also governs your net worth, and considering that generous Jupiter governs profits, 2018 could be a big year for creating wealth, the kind that may have eluded you in years past.
Just know this: honey, you are going to have to WORK for it! I’m not talking here about winning lottery numbers or rich, childless uncles dying and leaving you a fortune. Nope, this is all about grit and hustle. No pain, no gain. Dedication and long hours. However, if you’re willing to show the cosmos that you have the chops, you’ll get the juicy results.
Why are you going to have to bust your butt? Because on December 19th stern Saturn rolled into your house of ambition, its first visit there in 29 years. It’s going to be here through December 17, 2020, meaning that you’ll have three years of its wisdom. Saturn demands discipline and logic. It thinks long term. The ringed planet is the tortoise in the classic “tortoise and the hare” fable.
The house of ambition is viewed by many astrologers to be simply about your career, but I see it as more than that. Losing weight, saving up money to buy a house, finding true love….whatever major goals you have are found in this house. 2018 starts off with a bang because as January begins, the Sun, Saturn, Venus and Pluto are all clustered here, with Mercury going there on the 11th.
As a result, January will be one of your best times all year to buckle down and go after your dreams. If one of them is to earn more money, brilliant Uranus will be leaving Aries in May and heading into Taurus, your second house of earnings. This is a huge development because Uranus hasn’t been here since 1934! Uranus is futuristic, the muse of scientists and inventors and creatives. The fact that it will be in your income sector for the next seven years means that you can end up making some serious coin, most likely due to your own efforts.
We’re talking entrepreneurship, patenting an invention or writing a best selling book rather than plugging away in a cubicle working for someone else. This doesn’t mean that you’re going to quit the day job right away: JK Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series, stayed at her day gig until the second book was published and proved to be successful, even though the first one was a big hit.
The bottom line is that between Jupiter in your house of net worth, Saturn in your ambition sector and then Uranus moving into the income house, you are amazingly well poised to absolutely crush it over the next few years. Furthermore, there will be a lunar eclipse (full moon) in Leo on the 31st, showcasing your talent and skills.
Your love life also gets a boost in January. All of those planets piled on top of each other in Capricorn are trying to find you traditional, long-term love, if that’s what you’re seeking. No commitment-phobes, married people or flakes for you! Those rams who are already coupled up could see their union become even more serious, taking on a mature tone with a lot less drama. The lunar eclipse in Leo on the 31st could bring an exciting new phase in love in which things start to move rapidly.
A rare event occurs on the 9th: a conjunction of three planets in Capricorn. The Sun, Venus and Pluto all form a perfect line in the heavens, one behind the other. In matters of the heart you could be ready to kick off a passionate new chapter, and I mean passionate. Pluto is the planet of obsession and Venus governs love, so when these two meet it’s positively incendiary!
The Sun and Pluto hold a high level meeting about your career prospects. This is the perfect day to dazzle higher ups with your talent or to do a 180 and embark on a brand new career choice. It’s also possible that someone in a position of power has noticed you and they’re pulling strings for you behind the scenes.
Can this forecast get any better? Hell, yeah! Energetic Mars blasts into your house of adventure on the 26th, amping up the desire to get on a plane and head to an exotic island. This is also a wonderful time to consider going back to school, applying for a job in the news media or publishing fields, or going after a government job.
January starts off in a big way for you, Aries! Get focused, plan on working hard, but then squeeze in some fun along the way!« This Week’s Horoscope Today’s Horoscope »
