Amazing Aquarians you start with year with the Sun shining in your sign mid-January. You’ll be socialising and doing your usual technological wizardry. Whilst a great start to the year, your 2018 Aquarius horoscope suggests this is going to be a year of ups and downs in different areas of your life. Your personal life will be challenged but your career and finances are likely to do well.
A year of ups and downs and a chance to look within
This year the Universe will also challenge you to look within and journey down deep into your subconscious to find solutions. It could be this year that certain people close to you finally leave you in some way or another. The writing is on the wall so you probably already know who I’m talking about. 31st January brings a solar eclipse in your 7th house of committed relationships and this is backed up by another difficult aspect on 15th February which affects your personal life, causing a separation of sorts.

You also start the year with Saturn in earthy Capricorn in the 12th house of secrets, spirituality and hidden things. You could be feeling very solitary or restricted in some way and this placement lasts for the entire year.
Venus transits your 9th house of good fortune, finances, education, higher mind and inspiration. This is a beautiful placement helping you to feel more optimistic regardless of other more difficult influences and could bring you good luck in these areas.
Get ready to expand your horizons
The start of the year sees mega planet Mother Jupiter is in Scorpio with Mars transiting your 10th house of public image, achievements, awards and authority figures. This is likely to expand your horizons and you may become well known and recognised for some important work or achievement. Jupiter is also in the 2nd house of your values and disposable income suggesting your finances will increase in 2018. Whoo hoo… don’t spend it all on a good pair of shoes! You might also get a better job with more money or a promotion. Jupiter goes retrograde 9th March when things quieten down a bit and you may be feeling uncertain or your productivity goes down until 11th July when she then moves forward. You’re feeling good again with success and achievements that could be noticed by those higher up the food chain.
Mid May sees motivator Mars in your sign of Aquarius passing by in your 10th house of tradition, achievements, awards and authority figures which will both inspire and push you in more ways than one. You’ll be working hard and feeling very motivated for success and you could be recognised for your achievements and become well known. This might be in your work or even local community.
There could be major changes around your place of residence. You’ll either relocate or renovate between mid-May and 6th November when your ruler Uranus visits your 4th house, home of home and family (especially your mother). There’s little you can do except go with it when something major happens suddenly in your family during this period. Someone like family could leave your life at this time.

You may feel a little testy in June and August 2018
Mars goes retrograde 26th June through to 27th August in Aquarius in your 10th house. This is likely to lead to irritability and testiness. You might feel unmotivated and lacking in energy during this time. Be careful you don’t get sick. Look after yourself well now and do not plan any major projects as you’re likely to run out of steam to complete them. You might also become notorious for your aggression so do try and stay calm. You could have run-ins with authority figures who seek to restrict you in some way. There may be problems with your father or other male family members who act like your father. During this time you also have Mars retrograde in your 12th house, when obstacles and delays seem to dog your every move. The situation diminishes and you feel more confident again, as Mars turns direct mid September in your sign Aquarius and you move forward again at work and/or with your various projects.
27th July you experience a lunar eclipse in Aquarius in your 4th house of home and family. Uranus is at a difficult angle and Mars is also retrograde. It’s a tough time. Take a deep breath and go with the flow. Don’t waste your energy flapping when you can’t get off the ground. Just be patient for the difficulties to ease. Mars turns direct end of August re-entering Aquarius mid September taking some of the pressure off. You will then be feeling more confident and be inspired to get on with things.
Your 2018 Aquarius Horoscope shows Jupiter entering Sagittarius 9th November in your 11th house of groups, sudden events, networking and technology and innovation. You might be having wonderfully weird ideas, inventing new things or unusual ways to solve problems. You could be using the internet a lot more now to communicate with friends and groups or unexpected things (not necessarily negative) happen and take you by surprise.
During Mercury retrograde, communications might turn into miscommunications. These events affect all the star signs and you should be careful with contracts, business and communications generally.
During 2018 Mercury goes retrograde 3 times:
- 22nd March to 15th April
- 26th July until 19th August
- 16th November until 6th December
When retrograde Mercury moves forward (aka goes direct), misunderstandings and delays improve and your normal flow comes back again. There’s also a shadow period of around 5-7 days on either side of the dates above as Mercury increases or decreases in intensity. During this time, the effects of Mercury retrograde are less severe. When Mercury is retrograde it is not a good time to sign contracts or proceed with anything important because you may have to go back and redo items when Mercury goes direct.
Horoscope Summary for 2018
In summary, your 2018 Aquarius horoscope suggests that this year will be up hill and down dale with impressive achievements in work and your pet projects. So impressive in fact, that you may be recognised by your local community and/or business associates. Your finances are also likely to improve and you could get a promotion and/or advance your career in some way.
Unfortunately there are major issues in your personal life and you are drawn into the cave of your subconscious for self reflection and analysis for most of the year.
