Take charge in your life!

A new year always welcomes new energy. With 2018 swirling around our minds, an opportune moment arrives to gear up and get ready for all that it has in store. The year ahead will create many new shifts for all zodiac signs when it comes to our horoscope predictions.

All of the astrology combinations in motion point to the same message: change is upon us once again.

The planetary picture of 2018 reveals that it’s time to “out the old and embrace the new.” Old ideas, patterns & ways of life are breaking down in order for new ones to take their place. A totally new foundation is about to be built. This time around we’re ready to make sure they are built solid and safe. 

Some major twists and turns will surface for each of us as we trek along the next 12 months. However, our motivation to get where we need to remains the same. In our own way, each of us will be figuring out new ways to manifest our future vision and find new ways to make it long-lasting. 

The year ahead is one where we need to get real and conjure up our own personal magic. Some of us will move mountains because of where we need to go next. Expect to see people’s ambitions rise and big moves as a result. 

The year of 2018 is a time where we take matters into our own hands and create our own destiny. Our responsibility will be to ourselves — not others. Barriers of what’s normal and what’s not will continue to be broken.

The signs of Leo and Aquarius will continue to be in the limelight. Their influence actually began in 2017, but it continues on in 2018. Important beginnings and endings are in store for all those born under these signs. However, the Leo-Aquarius energy will be showcased in all of us in some way. 

We’re still going to be figuring out how to strut our stuff (Leo) while honoring our originality (Aquarius). This is because, in 2018, 4 eclipses will take place in these signs (2 in Leo + 2 in Aquarius). There will also be a 5th eclipse in 2018 highlighting the sign of Cancer. It’s actually not normal to have 5 eclipses in 1 year — usually, there are only 4. 

Eclipses create new chapters and close out old ones. With more than the ‘norm’ taking place, it’s another sign of big changes in motion. Important decisions and turning points, in our personal stories, will already be playing out by the time we ring in 2018.

With the new year literally kicking off with a powerful Super Full Moon in Cancer, major turning points are about to be set in motion. Many of us begin 2018 with a decision to DO something. 

If relationships are on your mind, I have a few things to report on that front.

To be honest, love might get a little dangerous — especially during the 2nd part of the year. With Jupiter in Scorpio and both Mars and Venus moving into their rare retrogrades, important relationship dynamics will surface. Mars will retro in late June until the end of August. While Venus retros in early October through mid-November. 

Getting married during Venus retrogrades are not astrologically advised. Love gets tricky during this period. However, I do believe that some of us out there will be making important karmic-soul connections by the end of the year.

This is because when Venus ends her retrograde and moves forward once again, her energy becomes quite powerful. This is especially the case since she’ll be operating in one of her best signs: Libra (the relationship oriented sign). 

When it comes to the luck factor of 2018, we’ve got to take a look at the Santa Claus of the zodiac.

Jupiter, the planet of abundance & good fortune, will be operating in Scorpio for most of 2018. As a result, we can expect the themes of Scorpio to be in the public eye.

The most pronounced will likely be sex. We’ve already started to see the sex scandals coming out, and I have no doubt there will be more. Jupiter expands the themes of the sign he’s operating in, and he creates big headlines to make sure we’re watching. 

A big “feeling” energy also comes along for the 2018 ride. Recognizing our feelings and honoring them will help us go through these changes. Some of us are going to get enchanted and go with the feeling flow while others will struggle with the emotions in the air. 

It’ll be a magical year and one where we question the universe more.

The inquisitive nature of the Scorpio influence will push us to find answers. Since ordinary and traditional means aren’t getting us there, the mystical one will begin to flourish. We’re moving into a time where we are more open-minded to the unexplainable. It’s going to be a wild ride and one that will get us feeling rather than thinking! Logic will likely not dictate in 2018 — whatever feels right is where many of us go from here. 

Read on to find out your 2018 Mantra and envision all the possibilities of what it has in store. I recommend reading for both your Sun & Rising Sign to add more depth and insight into the year ahead. Here is a free rising sign calculator if you don’t know yours.
