Lovely Librans your horoscope for 2018 is indicating that it’s time to grow up in some respect. Ok, I know you’re already a grown up however, like all of us in some way, there are potentialities within you that are still immature and getting ready for a ‘growth spurt’. You are like a snake beginning to shed its skin which is now too small. You are growing and must form a new skin or identity for life. Sometimes this could be a painful process but you will ultimately feel relief when you get restrictive elements of the past sloughed off, leaving your fresh, new and pink skin of identity glistening for the world to see.
Your finances are set for a boost during 2018
Good news – your finances are set for a boost during 2018. Mother Jupiter is transiting through the 2nd house of earned income until 8th November. You might get a promotion at work or get a ‘side hustle’ giving you more disposable income. Your income might also go up as you cut back on expenses and/or increase your hourly rate.
There’s a solar eclipse 12th July which is great for new beginnings around career projects. However, you will also have increased domestic obligations that you have to fulfil.
Uranus visits your 8th house of sex, secrets, death and rebirth bringing forth unexpected changes with regard to your income, or sex life or the death/rebirth regeneration cycle. Unexpected things will happen suddenly and sometimes without warning.
Serious Saturn has been resident in your 4th house of foundations, family and home in Capricorn since December last year and will be living here until December 2020. You’re going to be challenged and tested regarding your family life – yes again! These challenges occur especially from 18th April to 6th September when Saturn turns retrograde.
Get ready to stand on your own two feet
Family events may shake you to your foundations but this is for the ultimate good of making you self sufficient and not reliant upon other people – not even your own tribe. There are various things that could happen, including the additional family responsibilities of looking after someone frail, ill or old. Or perhaps someone who has been helping who is like family to you, disappears and you have to cope on your own. You might move house because you no longer feel secure in some way. Whichever, you will stand on your own two feet as you handle new domestic responsibilities. You will have commitments to take care of and if others have been doing things for you, the boot could be on the other foot during 2018 and you could be looking after them or they leave your life in some way.
When serious Saturn is involved, family may leave home in some way leaving you feeling under confident and insecure. There’s a sense of loss as the past passes away. Check out our astro reports if you want further details.
Sometimes your physical home or your body may need repairs in some way as your foundations are rattled from external events in your family. Try to remain calm and deal with your stress levels with lots of massages, meditation and long walks. It’s a good time to be alone and contemplate your healing. Do a ritual thinking about your family and plant a tree, nurturing your new future until it’s established.
Good news for you on the friends and career front
Now some good news – there could be changes often for the better, in your friends and also romantic partners. New friends come your way on the eclipses of 31st January and 11th August, while new lovers might arrive around the 15th February and 27th July.
Your career path is likely to be straighter and easier than usual in 2018 lovely Librans. Yes, there will be some challenges to which you will rise and show your metal, but basically you will jump ahead of the pack in leaps and bounds. Mother Jupiter will share her abundance with you in the work sector, after a bit of a shaky start to the year, when Venus and Saturn have a bit of a ding-dong argument slowing down your plans for just a bit.
5th May brings Mr Mars in a touchy mood in Aquarius in the 5th house mid-May. Your thoughts might be aggressive in relation to romance, self expression (hold back on the swearing lovely Librans) and creativity. There’s a lot of energy coming out of your mouth and in your thoughts, so please do be careful with what you say and do. Mr Mars then goes backwards 27th June entering Capricorn mid August in the 4th house of family, foundations and home. So there could be family arguments during this time or projects around your home that are not going well. Mars then turns direct end of August again in Aquarius from mid September in the 5th house, when the energy starts flowing again, just be careful during this time you are not too forceful with other people.
Your ruling planet
Your ruler Ms beautiful Venus resides your own sign from 7th August, bringing you more power and brilliance. She then hotfoots it over to Scorpio on the 10th September giving potential for wonderful moments of passion. Ms Venus turns retrograde from 6th October when you might feel a bit flat especially around your value systems, your possessions and general well being but then turns direct 16th November. So you don’t have to wait too long Lovely Librans until your energy returns and you become clearer about the things you value.
Misunderstandings and presentations go skew-iff along with your credibility if you’re not careful when Mercury goes backwards (aka retrograde).
During 2018 Mercury goes retrograde 3 times:
- 22nd March to 15th April affecting your relationships
- 26th July until 19th August when past unfinished business arises
- 16th November until 6th December when Ms Mercury causes general confusion in your work zone
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.
