The inner planets and their transits, dear Aries, deeply influence the matters of the heart within your overall play of energies from the outer planets. The lovescope predictions are not just about love, romance, attraction and sexuality, but also enlighten us of things that you enjoy and events that bring happiness to your heart. However, to truly relish the offers, all Arians must understand the overall scheme of fate that the primary outer planets have for you in 2018.
Jupiter has been in Scorpio from October 2017, your 8th House, your sector of joint finances, intimacy, and transformation - and will remain till November 2018, when it enters Sagittarius. This 13-month transit of the bountiful Jupiter indicates inheritance (hopefully, nobody has to die), good fortune in tax and estate issues, and an ability to pay off debts or seeking a much-needed loan. It also indicates the prosperity of partners, or the current love interest. Depending upon your age, this indicates a sexually active kind of year. It also favours personal transformation and reinventing yourself.
On the other hand, Saturn, the planet of responsibility and duty, has been in Capricorn from December 2017, your 10th House, your sector of occupation and calling - and will remain till March 2020. This Saturn's transit for more than two years means responsibilities in irreversible, monumental proportions in your career that will be thrust upon you to test your ability to handle pressure. It indicates an immense leap in prestige, outstanding success in career and business opportunities, and also honours, awards, rewards, even wish fulfilment - but only after a great struggle for power, position and prestige. Success will only be theirs, who will walk the talk, be aggressive without being abusive, must lead without crushing others' opinions. If you push too hard, you might take a big tumble. As additional challenges to test your character and to distract you, Saturn may cause anxiety regarding health of parents, in-laws, older people, and family at large, and other domestic problems at home and family, but hopefully, no deaths. Other features are: help from influential people, income from more than one source, good news about children, recovery from illness, possessions, lottery and windfalls.

Within your (above-explained) overall play of energies for 2018, the noteworthy inner planet influences on all Arians in 2018 are highlighted below, with predictions for love, attraction, and matters of the heart for Aries:
Venus will be in Aries from 6 March to 31 March. Venus is the planet of love, luxury, comforts, and everything that is beautiful. It brings romance and aroused senses to you when it resides in your own sign. For Aries, this period indicates enjoyment and happiness.
Mercury will be in Aries from 6 March to 13 May. Mercury is the planet of communication, travel, creativity, and pushes you forward when it is in your own sign. For Aries, this period indicates travelling and adventure.
Mars does not transit your sign in 2018, and enters Aries on 1 January 2019. Mars is the planet of vitality, adventure, and courage. It brings more powerful energy to you when it resides in your own sign. Mars is also your main planet. For Aries, this period can bring great achievements and progress. But, it is not unfortunate if Mars does not transit your sign, as Mars forms harmonious aspects many times this year.
The period from 6 March to 31 March is a double bonanza, and all Arians are advised to go for it. You will not be disappointed in almost anything that you seek - love, romance, career moves, money, you name it - but luck, as they say, favours the brave.
Other power periods are: 17 January to 17 March, 27 May to 27 June, and 12 September to 16 November - when the planets help you tremendously in energy, action, achievements and loans, funds, investments. These are periods when you have power, name, and fame.
Also, Mars and Venus make rare retrogrades this year - unlike other planets, they move backward only once in two years. Mars is retrograde from 26 June to 27 August, and Venus is retrograde from 5 October to 16 November. Although they do not occur in Aries, these periods are good times for reflection and review, rather than overt action. Old flames, lovers or partners from the past, and past actions come to the fore, sometimes in imagination and at times, physically. These are delicate periods for the mind, and it is wise to stay away from all major decisions and commitments - from marriage to property, from buying to selling.
For Aries, the above periods summarize the significant predictions for 2018. However, these are mere indicators based on solar-scopic readings, and not Natal Chart based real Horoscopic readings. Thus, the above observations are neither perfect nor accurate. The actual interplay of planetary energies is likely to be enhanced or diluted, based on individual Natal Charts. Nevertheless, we encourage you to direct your actions accordingly to take advantage of the energies at play, and contain yourself from avoidable temptations and altercations.
- When Jupiter transits Scorpio (October 2017 - November 2018), we tend to value intimacy more than usual. This can be a time for embracing our sexuality, and exploring some adventurousness on intimate levels. We are not impressed or patient with flakiness, and care less about social or financial standing than we do for character and integrity. Thus, showcasing committed, passionate, magnetic, powerful, and sensual qualities bring greater success in love and relationship. Also, there can be more coupling and breakups during this period, and improvements to relationships now can involve some breaking down of existing structures and intensive work on self-improvement.
- When Saturn transits Capricorn (December 2017 - March 2020), love and relationship may be either a little more business-like, or more traditional and defined. We tend to consider and value long-term viability - more than usual. Thus, being reliable, on time, and showing respect are appreciated among partners, and bring greater success in love and relationship. Also, we prefer a more conservative, classy, utilitarian or simply elegant fashion.
