Got goals and resolutions for the new year? Of all the signs, you’re the most likely to hit the ground running on January 1st! That’s because there will be a full moon on New Year’s Day in your ambition sector, which is one heck of a way to ring in 2018. Since full moons tend to wrap things up, initiatives that you started in June or July may finally be coming to fruition, much to your satisfaction.
And since full moons transition us into the next phase of our lives, you can spend the 1st figuring out what you’d like to manifest in the year ahead. A word to the wise: start by focusing on your career goals. As the month begins, abundant Jupiter is in your house of income, a place it will be until November. This is one of your best years in over a decade to earn more, whether you’re self-employed or work for someone else. It just so happens that mighty Mars is in the income sector too through the 26th, making this the month to push hard for that promotion, new job or business launch.
Home-based businesses are especially well-favored this year and all the way through 2020, so if you’ve been considering such a venture, do your homework now. The same holds true for telecommuting. The new moon on the 16th is the moment to launch anything home related, whether it’s a business or a redecorating binge. If you’re considering putting your house on the market, this is a good time as the next six months could bring in a buyer.
Home and family matters will be quite important to you over the next three years now that Saturn is in your domestic sector for the first time since 1991. If your 2018 resolutions include starting a family, moving to a new home or apartment, saving cash for a place, or helping elderly parents, the new moon will help you take action. Uranus has been retrograde in your partnership sector for the past few months, indicating that a spouse or lover may not have been on board with your ideas. Or you may have been vacillating, unable to make up your mind about some of these issues.
Fortunately Uranus goes direct on January 2nd, putting an end to wishy-washy or erratic behavior on your part or the SO’s. Romance should get back on more of an even keel, especially as of the 17th when Venus glides into your house of amour and having fun. The mighty Sun will enter this sector on the 19th, making the last ten days of January a great time for flirting, meeting a new flame and getting out to cultural events. It’s really all about your loved ones, including the kids, during the first three weeks of the month.
The atmosphere changes a little bit on the 26th when Mars enters Sagittarius. This is your third house of mingling with neighbors, friends and industry people, so although the fun energy keeps on rolling, you start spending more time with people outside your inner circle.
The third house governs the way you think and communicate with others, so any kind of written projects can shine: a manuscript, blog, screenplay, thesis, marketing plan or contract. The graphic arts are found here too, so if you’re an artist for a living, Mars will help you promote your work and develop your talent even more.
Rebranding your image (or that of your company) is a smart idea over the next eight weeks, so buff up your logo, marketing materials and website. And speaking of websites—and anything that has to do with computers or the digital world—there will be a major event occurring on the 31st, a lunar eclipse in Leo. This is your eleventh house of technology, and considering that eclipses bring about fast, sweeping changes, be ready to roll.
For example, you may suddenly discover that a plugin or software program isn’t doing the job and that there are better upgrades out there. Or you might decide to take an brick and mortar store online in addition to the physical storefront. A social media campaign could go viral.
When it comes to matters of the heart you’re going to be in quite a traditional mood this month. Lovers who are married or refuse to commit won’t work for you, nor will those who stir up too much drama. You’ll be looking for stability and the knowledge that a relationship can go the distance.« This Week’s Horoscope Today’s Horoscope »
