The inner planets and their transits, dear Libra, 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 Librans 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 2nd House, your sector of money, possessions, and values - and will remain till November 2018, when it enters Sagittarius. This 13-month transit of the bountiful Jupiter indicates a prosperous year, finance, earning through your own efforts, and acquisitions from father or relatives from father's side. It also indicates building something worthwhile for yourself, especially a business, but this can extend to a relationship, home, hobby, or the likes. This transit augurs well for your financial picture and outlook, but things will not be easy as Saturn has other plans.
On the other hand, Saturn, the planet of responsibility and duty, has been in Capricorn from December 2017, your 4th House, your sector of home and family, roots and origins - and will remain till March 2020. This Saturn's transit for more than two years means responsibilities in irreversible, monumental proportions in your homefront that will be thrust upon you to test your ability to handle pressure. It indicates spoiling the fun and joy of your life, the end of a relationship, domestic issues, additional domestic responsibilities, and inability to express how you are really feeling. As additional challenges to test your character and to distract you, anything to do with land and property may also come into sharp focus, as may your health or that of a family member's. Saturn's stressful alignment will be enhanced this year with three Solar Eclipses that indicates dramatic turbulence of life changing kinds, and a Venus Retrograde in your own sign may rub salt in a wound. Unless you are disciplined and focused, this can lead to repression, and perhaps even depression.

Within your (above-explained) overall play of energies for 2018, the noteworthy inner planet influences on all Librans in 2018 are highlighted below, with predictions for love, attraction, and matters of the heart for Libra:
Venus will be in Libra from 6 August to 9 September. And again from 31 October to 2 December, when Venus enters in Retrograde motion and turns direct from 16 November. 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. Venus is also your main planet. For Libra, this period indicates money, marriage, love, and alliances.
Mercury will be in Libra from 22 September to 10 October. Mercury is the planet of communication, travel, creativity, and pushes you forward when it is in your own sign. For Libra, this period provides memorable times for travel, ties, ceremonies, inspiration, and artistic genius.
Mars does not transit your sign in 2018. Mars is the planet of vitality, adventure, and courage. It brings more powerful energy to you when it resides in your own sign. For Libra, this period opens opportunities, and send assorted goodies your way. But, it is not unfortunate if Mars does not transit your sign, as Mars forms harmonious aspects many times this year.
Other power periods are: 18 January to 12 February and 7-30 March are periods when the planets help in creativity, hobbies, and relationships. 25 April to 19 May for journeys, travel, ceremonies, foreign affairs, and 14 June to 9 July to mix business and pleasure, entertainment and profit. 7 August to 8 September and 1 November to 2 December you may be trying to do too many things at the same time, and it would be wise to pause, analyse and introspect.
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. 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. Venus is partly retrograde in Libra - pointing to some review or returning to a previous condition in love, relationships, and finances. There can be some changes of heart or review of your feelings at this time. For some, a past love can be in strong focus.
For Libra, 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.
