2018 Astrological Forecast

This is a general assessment of the 12 zodiac signs for the upcoming year. This is not as prescriptive as your own personal chart which is individualistic to each person’s spiritual purpose. However, the following information will be extremely useful and is a guide to what to expect in 2018.

I especially focused on the impact that Jupiter, the planet of expansion and luck, and Saturn, the planet of structure and focus, will have.

 

Aries- This will be an active year for this sign, especially the first half of the year since Mercury, the planet of communication and travel, retrogrades in your sign in March and April, so careful with speeding and communications. Saturn, the planet of structure and focus, will be in your career sector for over 2 years starting now, and especially in January when there’s a new moon squaring up with Uranus, the planet of sudden change, so added responsibility is plausible – learn to delegate when needed. Pluto, the planet of fate and major changes or transformation, affects those born April 8-14, so an active year for Aries all around. Please don’t be impulsive, go with changes, rise to the challenge – all things come to pass, it’s a time for growth.
