2018 is a year for focus and concentration Aries!
Spontaneous to the point of being sometimes erratic Aries, 2018 is a year for focus and concentration! It’s time for you to just settle down and get on with it. Ok, I know you’re grumbling but I’m only telling you this for your own benefit. This year you can achieve extraordinary things because the forces of light and dark are working together for your benefit. Just don’t kick yourself in the teeth by self-sabotage. Feet are best kept on the ground and not in your mouth this year.
You can do this and do it well aided by the powerful but sometimes tumultuous forces of Saturn and Pluto. Yes, it’s everything up in the air at first but as you settle, you’ll see long term benefits. Saturn is one of those hard task master planets but everything you gain under its influence, you will keep. Pluto might knock you for a sixer at first, dredging up old karmic patterns that need to be released but it will all work out to your favour in the end. Both these planets could substantially affect your career, so you could change positions in 2018/19.
This year is not about taking shortcuts or cutting corners
The hard taskmaster Saturn moves into your house of career, reputation and social status, the 10th house this year. This will make you want to work harder and really achieve in the work arena. Just remember, slow and steady wins the race. This year is not about shortcuts or cutting corners at work. Do it properly and you will reap long term rewards. The planet Jupiter, in fact wants to aid you with abundance and prosperity so you could find an increase in finances through her influence. Yay, my gargantuan friend Jupiter! She may also bequeath money to you through inheritance or some type of legacy or money from a partnership arrangement. However it comes, your finances are bound to increase in 2018.
Mercury retrograde causes miscommunications for all astrological signs and sometimes in a major way, playing havoc with relationships, business, legal issues and career. Be careful starting projects when Mercury is retrograde as things can get easily muddled up and you might have to go back again and redo things you thought had already been done. Remember, if in doubt – don’t! Misunderstandings and presentations go skew-iff along with your credibility if you’re not careful during this time.
During 2018 Mercury goes retrograde 3 times:
- 22nd March to 15th April
- 26th July until 19th August
- 16th November until 6th December
Coming out of retrograde Mercury is moving forwards improving communications, and life becomes much clearer again. There is also a shadow period of approximately 5-7 days on either side of the dates above when Mercury is increasing or decreasing in intensity. During the shadow time, the effects of Mercury retrograde are still there but not as intense.
Dealing with unfinished business from the past
2018 brings both new and old people and situations into your life as Pluto in Capricorn in the 10th house (career, social status and reputation) activates strong karmic forces from the past and old relationship partners could even return to finish off unfinished business. Power and domination could be on the minds of these people, so just watch that you are not being controlled in any way. These may have been people from work, somehow involved in community life or perhaps old or new neighbours.
During 2018, you may attract people who in some way try to ‘parent’ you because people generally are beginning to recognise your true essence (a good thing) as you go about life in a practical way in your unique and individualistic way. You’re about to become more individual than most.
As Uranus and Pluto are outlying planets, they take years to orbit the sun and so tumultuous changes don’t manifest in 5 minutes! They are years in the making and if you’ve been paying attention, you will have noticed various signs and portents that things in your life are changing for the better in the long run. You’re a non-conformist by nature and being ruled by Uranus, especially if you’re born towards the end of your sign, you’ll be feeling even more radical than usual. It’s all about you and you got this!
Your ruling planet
Your ruling planet Uranus has been transiting your sign since 2011 throwing up all types of situations where the unexpected has reigned supreme. You might have also had ‘issues’ with lightning, technology, electricity and the internet. You could be working in these areas and when Uranus leaves your sign this year, things could settle down a little after you have made changes in your career. Uranus also has a connection with lightning so at times you could have felt very ‘frazzled’ by its influence in various situations. Uranus will leave your sign May 15 and move into Taurus which may give you a new appreciation for new clothes and a new appearance. Your finances may improve, but don’t overspend updating your new look.
If you haven’t already, you’ll be letting go of people in 2018 who try to restrict you in any way, or at least putting up borders so they can’t interfere with your trail blazing energy as you explore new ideas and constructs. You’ve been through a lot of changes already and there are more to come, but at least you’ll be feeling more positive, confident and strong in 2018 as you make your own way through life’s challenges up hill and down dale. Relationships and family have been most affected over the past few years so 2018 is about cleaning up whatever debris is left over, so you can get onto a deeper level of being your real authentic self.
Horoscope Summary for 2018

Time to get out and about Awesome Aries as you kick start the 2018 with your trademark nonconformity and uniqueness.

As you evolve and gain more awareness, you can choose more wisely how you live your life. This horoscope is not ‘set in stone’ and is a general outline only of some of the influences you will be feeling in 2018 so it should not be taken as ‘gospel’. Listen to your own Soul and do what you think is right so you can progress in life.
