The year is fresh and the slate has been cleared to make way for new projects, ideas, opportunities, and master plans as we saunter into 2018 with a whole new perspective.
For most of this month, the Sun will be plodding through the sign of Capricorn, helping us get on track with our plans and begin moving in the direction of where we would most like to see ourselves in the new year. Capricorn is ambitiously forward-thinking and grants us the discernment we need to finetune our ideas and lay out all of the necessary factors that will lead us toward a greater feeling of success.
Now that a 5-month Uranus Retrograde has ended (as of the 2nd) and 2017 is fading further into the distance in our rear-view mirror, we can finally move forward with less aversion to making our life & career reflect our true ambitions and make the changes we have been craving beneath the surface for oh so long. It’s truly like a fresh of breath air!
On January 16th, the New Moon in Capricorn will help us cement these goals and set a solid intention for where we would like to see ourselves by mid-June as we take the time to look within and strive to imagine the winding staircase of experiences we must build upon to take us there. Soon after, we’ll shift our focus as the Sun moves into Aquarius next on the 19th to help us adopt an even more revolutionary approach to making more magic happen in our lives.

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)
What incredible heights will you scale this year, Aries? For most of January, the Sun is cascading through your 10th house of Career, helping you make a plan for world domination that will not only allow you to reach your career dreams but also make a greater impression on others. At the New Moon in Capricorn on the 16th, it will the perfect time to officially get clear on where your passion-fueled ambitions truly lie and commit to seeing them through over these first 6 months of the year.
Toward the end of the month, the Sun will be moving on into your 11th house of Community Outreach as Aquarius Season kicks off on the 19th. Now that you have some solid goals in mind, you may want to spend some time reaching out to others to see how you can use your work to support them (which will only end up supporting you more in the end). How can you be the one to give the people more of what they would really like to see in the world? Aim to get in their good graces and watch the benefits and rewards unfold!
With your ruler Mars joining Jupiter in your 8th house of Business, you may already be feeling the drive to make this year the one where you finally find ways to earn your money the smarter way rather than the harder way and build a business – or job situation – that supports you and makes you feel so much more secure. Remember to think big when it comes to the bottom line you are envisioning for yourself, because your finances are the biggest area that is supercharged for growth this year, and with the right amount of focus, any extra efforts you put in are incredibly likely to pay off (literally)!
TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)
The first month of 2018 may be taunting you to take off on a totally new adventure. As the Sun moves through your 9th house of Travel, Education & Exploration, you may be daydreaming about jetting off to new locations or perhaps even just craving new experiences that will have the power to satiate your wanderlust in other ways. A good book, a course, or a whole new branch of your biz could also be just the thing you need to quench your desire to seek out more of the magic this world has to offer. The New Moon in Capricorn on the 16th is a wonderful time to set an intention on how you can continue to make these first 6 months of the year as exciting as possible in your life & career.
As January begins winding down, the focus will shift a bit as the Sun moves into your 10th house of Career on the 19th. How can you take all of these new and interesting things you have been learning and bring them into your work to make it even more meaningful for you and more impactful for others? Your ruling planet, sweet Venus, will also be joining the Sun in Aquarius to add a dash of brightness to your career moves and help attract even more lovely opportunities to boost up your mood (or even your money!) when it comes to your work.
However, this year’s biggest area of growth will be found in your Relationship zone. Business partnerships, romantic liaisons, and improving the way you relate to others, in general, will all bring wonderful rewards your way over the coming 11 months. As you embark on this new year, be sure to look around and ask yourself how you could use the support of others to help further your personal or business development – and how you could also be more supportive to those you care about in return.
GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)
It’s time to get down to business, Gemini! This month, the Sun is roaming through your 8th house of Business & Finance, helping you get clearer on your whole money situation and find new ways to boost up your bottom line in a way that will increase your feeling of security. Your ruling planet Mercury is also hanging out in this area to help infuse your mind with good ideas and inspire you to find more resourceful solutions that will allow you to work smarter rather than harder. The New Moon in Capricorn on the 16th will be the perfect time to send your money wishes out into the universe and call in the abundance you truly crave over these first 6 months of 2018.
On January 19th, the Sun will move into Aquarius and your 9th house of Travel, Education & Exploration next. This will bring in a much more fun period of time to explore more of your interests and invite in new experiences and opportunities to widen your perspective and gain new inspiration in a way that is sure to have you feeling much more optimistic about your future as we move into February.
Meanwhile, the biggest area of growth for you this year is one you may have quite been looking forward to for some time! If your daily routine has felt a bit mundane or even so busy that it has seemed nearly impossible to get a handle on, you will come to find that Jupiter’s move through your Work, Health & Daily Support sector will help you bring in a much greater feeling of work/life balance as you move further into 2018.
CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)
As the new year kicks off, you may be putting a little more thought into how things are going in your partnerships with others. The Sun is revving up your Relationship zone until January 19th, helping you bring your focus towards finding better ways to make sure you are getting what you need from those around you. Taking everything you’ve been learning about this subject, the New Moon on the 16th will be the best time to send out an intention for the ideal outcome you would like to see happen in your relationships with others (whether in love, work or in a more general sense) over these first 6 months of the year.
Later in the month, the Sun will move into Aquarius and your 8th house of Business, moving your focus away from other people and on to finding ways to make your money work for you better. If you have grand plans for your future, this will be the time to work out the numbers and ensure you’re on track to creating the kind of lifestyle you crave so you can feel your most comfortable without completely over-working yourself in the process.
You may even want to consider infusing a little more creativity into your money making efforts as your biggest area of growth for the year is in your Creative Pursuits. Jupiter will be jetting through this area until November making this an amazing year to get inspired to express yourself and create more of the wonderful things you wish existed in the world!
LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)
Are all of these spinning plates making your head spin, too? As the Sun saunters through your 6th house of Health, Work & Daily Support for most of January, it will be making it especially important to bring your focus towards all of those little things that keep your life moving along efficiently regardless of how mundane they may seem. Perhaps you have grand new years’ resolutions to get your body in shape, fix up your diet, or treat yourself with some TLC in another way that will allow you feel more level-headed and balanced. Our New Moon in Capricorn on the 16th will be the perfect time for you to cement your intentions in this area and to promise yourself that you will continue to take your overall wellbeing seriously over the next 6 months of the year.
Toward the end of this month, your focus will shift as the Sun moves into Aquarius and your 7th house of Relationships next. This will be prime time to check in with your closest relationships and ensure that everyone is truly on the same page whether we are talking about business, romance, or even your clients & customers. Maybe you could use some more help to get your ideas off the ground in which case this could bring a time where you may need to reevaluate how much you can really do and see if someone else can help lighten your load.
Overall, this year is going to be amazing for creating a greater sense of comfort when it comes to your home, family, and long-term financial security as jubilant Jupiter moves through your 4th house for most of 2018. The more serious thought you can put into where you would like to see yourself end up in the future, the more you’ll be able to bring opportunities into your life to actually make it happen!
VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)
Got some exciting creative ideas brewing beneath the surface, Virgo? With the Sun & Mercury moving through your 5th house of Fun & Creativity for most of January, this is an excellent time to hop on the wave of inspiration and make some of your ideas actually happen. The New Moon in Capricorn on January 16th will be a beautiful time to envision the possibilities of what you could create and set an intention to bring them into being over the coming 6 months.
Later on the 19th, the Sun will step into Aquarius and your 6th house of Health, Work & Daily Routines next. Once your mind starts buzzing with all of your brilliant new projects, you may need to learn how to juggle a busier schedule. Luckily you are the queen (or king) of details when it comes to making your work more practical and efficient, but don’t forget to keep your own wellbeing in balance too!
One of the ways you will be able to move forward really quickly in your life & career over this whole year is by reaching out and sharing your ideas with others who can help you make them a reality, so don’t feel like you have to make all of this magic happen by yourself. With Jupiter moving through your 3rd house of Social Networking for most of the year, don’t be afraid to put yourself out there because a beneficial collaboration (or many) could pop up to help take you further than you may have envisioned on your own.
LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)
As we enter this new year, you may be asking yourself if your home really reflects all of the goals and aspirations you have set for yourself this year. With the Sun moving through your 4th house of Home, Family & Long-term Security for most of January, this would be an excellent time to update your surroundings and make them feel more beautiful & comfortable in order to support yourself in going after the gold in other areas of your life. The New Moon in Capricorn on January 16th will be the ideal time to set an intention for how you would like to see your home life continue to prosper over these first 6 months of the year.
On January 19th, the Sun and Venus will both slide into Aquarius and your 5th house of Fun & Creativity next. This is the time to stop merely planning and start putting your dreamiest ideas into practice. Over the next month, have the courage to follow your heart and create something magical you have been ruminating over to make your life & work even more fun!
For the first time in 12 years, your biggest area of growth for this year will actually be in receiving some of your heart’s deeper desires. As Jupiter moves through your 2nd house of Love, Money & Self-worth for most of the year, all you need to do is get clear and decide what you really want and Jupiter will help bring it to you in the form of opportunities and blessings galore!
SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)
Okay, Scorpio, it’s time to take your ideas out of your head and into the world! This month, the Sun is cruising through your sociable 3rd house of Networking. Find the right people to collaborate with and you could take your ideas so much further than you ever dreamed with the help of others who have the power to expand your reach beyond where you could go all on your own. Do not be afraid to aim high as the New Moon in Capricorn on the 16th will be your call to set a powerful intention on the type of people you would most like to see yourself working with or even just be associated with over the next 6 months of this year.
Next up, the Sun will shift into Aquarius and your 4th house of Home, Family & Long-term Security. Although January is typically quite famous for being the time of year to set your goals, you may actually find you are able to get much clearer on where you’d like to see yourself in the future as we head into February. This will be a great time to envision your 1-year, 3-year, or even 5-year goals in terms of how you would like to be living so you can make sure your day-to-day actions will support your hopes & dreams on a more practical level.
Most importantly for you to know is that this year is basically your year to break out of your shell and show the world what you’re made of! As Jupiter moves through your sign for most of 2018, you will find yourself attracting more and more opportunities to step into the limelight and show others what a true leader looks like. Get clear on who you want to be and how you want to be seen and the universe will bless your path along the way!
SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)
As the fresh new year kicks off, you may have your mind set firmly on your money. With the Sun moving through your 2nd house of Love, Money & Goal Setting, this is the perfect time of year to dream big when it comes to your financial situation and set goals that will take you closer toward receiving your heart’s true desires. The New Moon in Capricorn on January 16th, in particular, is the perfect time to set your mind toward doing what it will take to firm up your foundations by the middle of this year.
After you’ve had a chance to get clear on what you want and what it will really take for you to get it, the Sun will shift into Aquarius and your 3rd house of Social Networking next. Don’t be shy about going after your dreams. Share them with the right people and you may just find that others will also want to help you further your aims as well. The next month will be a great time to team up for some mutually beneficial collaborations to see your dreams take off more quickly than they would if you were simply working alone.
On another note, with work and goal setting set aside, this is actually going to be quite an amazing year for you to seek out the truth about your soul. As Jupiter moves through your 12th house of Spirituality & Mystical Pursuits for most of 2018, you may receive many opportunities to widen your horizons, learn more about yourself on a deeper level, and come to understand your place in the universe more than you ever have before.
CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)
This time of year is all about you, Capricorn! The Sun, Mercury, and Saturn are all moving through your sign and pressuring you to get practical about putting your master plan into place for 2018. Luckily you tend to be quite good at creating a framework for your goals, but try not to let perfectionism take you away from making the progress you can make right now while the year is still young. The New Moon in your sign on January 16th is the most beautiful time of the year to set a powerful intention on where you would like to see yourself by the end of June.
After you’ve had a chance to get clear on who you really want to be and what it will take to get you there, the Sun will move into Aquarius and your 2nd house of Love, Money & Goal Setting next. This is less about envisioning what you’d like to do and more about why you want to do it. Which rewards are you hoping to gain from your efforts and what are the actual steps it will require from you?
Overall, your biggest area of growth for this year will come from reaching out to your community to be of greater service. As Jupiter moves through your 11th house of Community & Friendship for most of 2018, you will have a much easier time of growing your community – online or off – and showing others the true value that you provide as you work to make the world a better place in your own special way.
AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)
The start of the year may feel ripe with potential for you, dear Aquarius. As the Sun moves through your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits, you may not be quite ready to take the next step forward, but have lots of ideas on your mind to sort through as you decide on your next best move. The New Moon in Capricorn on January 16th will be an important time to decide how you’d like to bring more passion and purpose to your life’s work over these next 6 months.
Beginning on January 19th, the Sun will begin its descent into your sign next joined by sweet Venus. As Aquarius season kicks off, luck will be in your corner. You will have a much easier time of deciding how you would like to be seen by the world and others will be even more likely to take notice of your efforts as well!
This is actually going to be one of the biggest years for your career in over 12 years. As Jupiter jets through your Career Zone until November, any efforts you can put forth into following your higher calling and using your natural gifts & talents to benefit others will be supercharged and well-recognized by others around you. This is your time to take it to the top, so don’t be shy and about sharing what you’re most passionate about as you are quite likely to inspire many others simply by showing up and sharing your presence.
PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)
With the new year comes a new chance to share your inspirations with the world. This month, the Sun is moving through your 11th house of Community & Friendship, bringing your focus toward reaching out to others to help make the world a better place for all. You have something special to offer and, let’s face it, it is not going to be very helpful if you keep it a secret! The New Moon on January 16th will bring a powerful time to set your intention toward how you would like to relate to your community on an even greater level over the coming 6 months.
Coming up next, the Sun will shift into Aquarius and your 12th house of Spirituality on January 19th. Even though this year is just getting started, you may find yourself needing to take some time out for a mini-retreat. Reflecting on your past hopes and dreams can provide fertile ground for brainstorming where you would like to be in the future. Use this next month to get quiet and get clear on what will hold most purpose for you to create next.
Try not to fret about it too much, though, because there is still plenty of magic to be had this year. As Jupiter moves through your 9th house of Travel, Education & Exploration for most of 2018, you may find yourself receiving exciting opportunities to widen your horizons, expand your mind, and chase some of wildest curiosities in new and exciting ways you may have only dreamed of in the past!
