Aries 2018 Horoscope Overview:
Your horoscope this year, dear Aries, portrays a terrific year for learning about and attending to your inner needs and resources, and work more diligently. 2018 is a strong career year - February being the launchpad - when you succeed by sheer merit. Your hard work and intensity will be well rewarded, and the planets advise you to strive for excellence in all that you do. This year holds powerful opportunities to improve, prepare, straighten out, and discover, especially in the areas of work, intimacy, personal growth, and finances. From November, Jupiter harmonizes with your sign, and will make you more outgoing towards the end of the year. Do not take small matters to heart, and save your energy for the big occasions of your life.
You must already have felt the influence of Saturn leaving your 9th House of philosophies and far countries - in December 2017, and Jupiter entering your 8th House of joint finances, intimacy, and transformation - in October 2017. You must have evolved with fresher new ideas and experiences that will last a lifetime. Uranus, which was transiting your sign for the last 7 years, is also in its last league. The changes should be more apparent in January-February, 2018. February is the launchpad for everything, especially for financial initiatives. From May to August, it will be wise to lay low, plan and prepare - rather than push new initiatives ahead.
In October 2017, Jupiter entered an excellent position for financial help or advice, dealings, and support. This is a powerful year for you on a financial level, to work through tax or debt issues, gain support or backing for financial initiatives, or to combine resources with others or a partner. Till November, it is a good time for tackling existing debt or for seeking a much-needed loan, and be released from debt or some form of dependency on someone else for support. A partner might be prosperous at this time, and support from others is more possible and forthcoming than ever. For some of you, increased awareness of mortality or a heightened awareness of how habits impact health - can lead to making substantial lifestyle changes, living more joyfully, or a commitment to taking better care of health. Some of you will also be taking a relationship to a deeper level, and others will be working with a partner with excellent results. Superficial connections will not satisfy you this year, and your desire and ability for deeper levels of intimate experience will be paramount. There can be more joy in an intimate relationship, or enjoyment of delving into your own psychological depths.
Saturn transiting your career sector, 10th House of occupation and calling - indicates an increase in responsibility, a culmination in your work front, or make-or-break situation. Recognition for what you do or have achieved may come now, but from time to time, this can also feel like a lot of pressure or scrutiny for some of you. This is an important turning-point period, till March 2020, for your career, status, public life, or reputation. During this transit, you are bound to feel driven to prove or achieve something substantial as the year progresses - entering a period of harder work and increased scrutiny. You will be learning what you are capable of doing, and embracing reality if unrealistic goals have been slowing your progress. You will also need to simplify and declutter your areas of work, as you are urged to catch up, and fix areas of neglect or waste in your workfront. There can be increased interest in what you do, and possibly some criticism or self-analysis involved, as you figure out whether you are on the right path. It can be very worthwhile to work through challenges or demands involving a career that you know is your calling, as the improvements that result can benefit for many years to come.
The headline this year, however, is Uranus moving away from your own sign, although the move will complete in March 2019. This means that the theme that has been with you since 2011, is coming to an end - when you had to face a lot of pressure to discover your independence in recent years, and changes in your life have been par for the course, whether these affected your relationships, work, or both. This pressure will be easing now, and you will no longer feel the need to make a splash when it comes to asserting your independence - especially from May to November. The new theme that is entering your life concerns and changes your relationship with money or personal possessions. You will re-define your needs, and what you truly value - as the influence plays out more fully in years to come.
Most of 2018, brings great benefit from career support or backing. But from May to November, it would be wise to lay low and prepare - rather than push new initiatives ahead. This is a period, that you will need to come to terms with your changing emotions and desires. For some, this can be a time of increased responsibility related to parents, bosses, or teachers.
From November onwards, you will be ready to explore, discover, and share - when Jupiter blesses your spirit and adventure sector, 9th House of philosophies and far countries. This period finds you braver, more outgoing, bouncing back, and unflappably optimistic - for the next 13 months. You are likely to be especially curious on intellectual levels, with opportunities to learn new things, gain new experiences, expand your horizons, publish, promote or expand your business dealings can emerge. Travel, education, and publishing are possible ways to expand your horizons now.
This is an overview of what the planets have in store for you in 2018, dear Arians. Astrology never compels, but you can use your free will to tweak the energies of the planets to your advantage.
- Note that Saturn is a slow-moving planet and transits through a sign for approximately 2.5 years. This means, that the challenges and/or rewards that Saturn offers are distributed over a long period, and not concentrated - as it opens our eyes and wisdom to long-term lessons, over an elongated period. Saturn is a teacher, and philosopher. Saturn transits may get tough, but never bad - and it streamlines the areas of our life that it touches, which lasts a long time. Uranus is also a slow-moving planet that transits through a sign for approximately 7 years, but Uranus is no teacher - although it does enforce change and transformation - but through innovative ideas.
- When Jupiter transits Scorpio (October 2017 - November 2018), being committed, intense, perceptive, and passionate about what we do brings greater success in business and career. More focus on change, improvement, and passion in our promotional materials and products or services can be successful. Investing in our resourcefulness works better, particularly as we are able to employ others' talents and resources creatively and effectively. Teaming up with one or more partners whose talents and/or resources complement ours well can be beneficial.
- When Saturn transits Capricorn (December 2017 - March 2020), we want to get the most for our money, and tend to be more economical. High-quality items are likely to be most popular, although we're also quite concerned with economics at this time. This is the time for putting more effort into doing something well. In business and career, specialized products/services and specializations work best during this period. Overall, live the truth - be who you are, be honest, be straightforward, and most importantly, be ethical - otherwise, things will most certainly fall apart. During this transit, we should take no, or very few shortcuts - as they don't work in our favour. However, we must draw boundaries - keeping personal and professional lives mostly separate, as they tend to get blurred.
