What The First Week Of 2018 Will Be Like For Each Zodiac Sign

Your Weekly Horoscope For December 31, 2017 - January 6th, 2018 Is HERE

Goodbye 2017 and hello, 2018!

Your weekly horoscope is in! In with the old and out with the new! Our weekly horoscope begins with New Year's Eve and this is a chance to kiss 2017 good-bye.

For some zodiac signs, it's been a good year to some degree, but for all the best is yet to come!

Early this month, Uranus stations direct. After being in retrograde since August 2017, this means we can finally breathe a little easier when attempting to do things that are a bit off the beaten path. Although Jupiter, our benevolent planet is in the retrograde zone, we have no planets in retrograde after the 2nd! Whew! A lucky break!

There are four (4) major planetary events happening this week in astrology:

  • January 1st — Full 'Wolf' Moon in Cancer in the constellation of Gemini. Emotional conflicts, particularly in the area of shallow commitments, arise. If you're not emotionally invested, this is the universe signaling to let it go.
  • January 2nd — Uranus turns direct in Aries. The natural wonder of cause and effect can return back to normal. Less tension can be felt in the areas of change, in fact, doors can open if you knock with true sincerity.
  • January 3rd - 4th — The Quadrantids is first meteor shower of the year. Make a wish! Although the Full Moon 'may' prevent us from seeing shooting stars early this month, the shower peaks on the 3rd and 4th.
  • January 3rd - 5th — Mars and Jupiter conjoin.

This is a wonderful time to honor your dreams and believe in fairytales. Let the nay-sayers say what they want, but you honor yourself during this celestial event and enjoy yourself. 

Here's where each planet will be located this week and the zodiac sign's energy that it's associated with:

  • Mercury is in Sagittarius and goes void of course to enter Capricorn.
  • Venus is in Capricorn.
  • Ceres is in Leo.
  • Uranus and Eris are in Aries (until 2020).
  • The Moon travels from Gemini to Virgo.
  • Makemake and Haumea are in Libra.
  • Pluto is in Capricorn.
  • Neptune and Chiron are in Pisces.
  • MARS and Jupiter are in Scorpio.

Here's how these astrological and planetary energies come together:

In family, work, and career:

Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio and mid-week they conjoin. This means that our deepest longings can rise to the surface. If you're uncertain about how you feel or where you want to be at this life stage, spend time on discovering yourself. Do some yoga, go for a walk or call a life coach for a session. Journaling will also be helpful for all zodiac signs, even if it's just putting random thoughts down on the page. 


The Moon moves Gemini into Virgo. What Gemini conceives, Virgo can help see it through. This is a wonderful time to let your creative energies become fruitful. Want to put up some new bookshelves or redesign a room? The timing couldn't be better. Conversations will be more exploratory, but don't think it's all for nothing. The information gathered during this time can be truly helpful for making plans.  

In love, sex and relationships: 

Venus enters Capricorn and nestles between Saturn and Pluto. Oh, boy. This is a tough place to be! This could mean that emotions are more intense and vulnerable. Don't worry if you're more expressive at this time, but do think before you talk. As Venus grows closer to Pluto in Capricorn, a sharp tongue may truly become mightier than the sword. Criticism at this time could cut like a knife. Get some? Take it into personal counsel and see if there's any truth to it. If not, chuck it!

Health, Spirituality, and Self:

Saturn is in Capricorn for the next 29.5 years. We all get a new and fresh start. As we all move into 2018, many zodiac signs, particularly Aries and Virgo, will grow interested in good health habits. A massage will be key this week in getting that blood flowing. Be sure to pamper yourself with extra doses of loving touch, either by going to a massage therapist, seeing your chiropractor, or squeezing in during a mani/pedi and asking for the extra long foot massage!

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Power color: Red

Aries, this is a wonderful week for you to hit the reset button and recharge. Ironically, recharging may not be the exact thought you had in mind for the first week of the year, but it's precisely what you need for clarity of purpose. 

Take things off your plate that you never should have added on there to begin with. 2018 needs to be about more delegation so you can do more things like exercising and spending time with loved ones. They keep you grounded.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Power color: Green

Taurus, this week, with so much energy changing, you might actually want to try something new and do things that you never would dream of. Thinking of a travel plan a few months ahead may be the golden ticket for you. This week, you might still carry on the social bug from the holiday festivities. Don't let it throw you for a loop. Is there a way to mix business and pleasure? Perhaps attending happy hours after work so you can network and see friends at the same time will do well for you.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Power color: Yellow

Gemini, this week things may change for you in a really interesting way: love! Yes, this is your year, Gemini. If you want to make a love commitment, guess what? You can. Commitmentphobia may not be here to stay after all. Just after the first of this month, you might want to start putting your ideas into check. Write down what you really want in a partner, and what you don't. Then, aim for that goal.

If you're married already, know it can be difficult for you to spend time with family and do what you want to do hobby-wise. This area can improve as well. Be the partner you wish you had and influence your marriage in a positive way.

Binge watch your favorite show, drink hot tea, take long showers, and allow yourself this time to breath and reconnect with you. It will do your soul some good.
