Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Work hard, rest hard! You’ll be needing to manage your energy as 2018 begins, Aquarius. You’re able to ease in at your own pace most years, but this year, you’ll be facing opposing desires to lean back and relax. Major deadlines could be coming up, leaving little, if any, downtime.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Get ready for an adventurous 2018! January showed no signs of slowing down and neither does February until later in the month. Even then, things won’t slow down much. You might be longing for association as the calendar turns, so cast a broad net!
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Welcome to a brand-new year, Aries! January has swooped in with a flurry of activity making sure we’re sitting up straight, at attention. Yup, pretty soon it’s gonna be obvious that 2018 means business. (It’s like the cosmos are announcing, “This isn’t 2017, people – is that clear?”)
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Talk about making an entrance! You aren’t edging into 2018 lightly. You have your sights set on daring new possibilities and hardly any planned risks. Dare to stretch outside of your usual comfort zone when you start making your 2018 plans, in both educational and personal domains.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Hope you have sensible shoes on, Gemini. You will want to land on well-tractioned soles on firm ground (and maybe even dig your heels in a bit). Even the master jugglers, Geminis , could get overwhelmed by this pace.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Front and center! You have catapulted into action as soon as 2018 began while your personal ambitions and aspirations have had a spotlight shined on them. Announce them to your closest friends or the world, and keep in mind to document them somewhere you won’t forget. You’ll have a brief time period of eye-opening clarity which doesn’t come around every day.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
February is coming in at full force. You’ll have some unfinished business that you should work on completing. Something you’ve been clinging to or a situation you’ve been forcing won’t belong. No amount of denial, regret, or justification will prevent situations from blowing up in your face.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, look around you: Who are the people in your inner circle? Since February is just around the corner, your companionships and friendships are going to be in the spotlight, as well as things that will require your attention. So take inventory. Are the people in your group people who add… character to your life?
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Ready, set, #goals! Right from the get-go, February is rushing in with a gust of ambition. The good conditions of January are going to continue into 2018. The first week or so is the best of the month with a lot of energy. You’ll be able to balance everything from your personal life to your social life.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
There was no way you could have slipped into 2018 quietly, Scorpio. Careful though, because as the month of January runs out, so does your time and patience. You might be experiencing some sort of annoyance that’s hard to ignore. Here is a word of advice, Scorpio: try not to oppose change because something better is on the horizon.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Is it time to take a leap of faith Sagittarius? One of your exceptional ideas could go viral. You may also wonder why your usual fervor and vigor has turned into a trickle. You’ve always been one to look at the glass half full, but now you’ll start wondering if the universe is trying to send you a message to dig deeper about what your place is in this world.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
You’re full of initiative and drive. You’re literally unstoppable now, Capricorn. You should be aware that you could easily run over others in your desire to achieve your goals. But you may find that there is a more creative way to use your resources and talents.
