Aries

(March 21st to April 19th)

The sun enters your sign at the end of March, meaning it’s time to take inspired action.

If you’ve felt like you’ve been grappling with the unknown over the past year or two, in 2018, that is going to change. The sun will enter your ruling sign in the springtime, and give you some clarity, some incentive, and some motivation. Most of all, however, it’s going to give you vision. You won’t be in the dark for long.

Taurus

(April 20th to May 21st)

Venus will enter Virgo in July, and your relationships will be glowing.

By the time summer comes around, your relationships are going to get hit with a little burst of extra lovin’, and that’s exactly what you need. You’ll be handed an opportunity to prove who you’re really there for… and who is really there for you. This will be a time to reignite old flames, or just appreciate the ones that have always been burning strong.

Gemini

(May 22nd to June 21st)

The sun is entering your sign from May until June, so it might be time to get that new business venture started.

In late spring and early summer, your sun sign will be glowing and all your natural attributes at their strongest. Your ability to network, promote and connect with people will be at a high, which would make it an ideal time to perhaps embark on that new professional idea you’ve been dreaming about.

Cancer

(June 22nd to July 22nd)

There will be a trine between the sun, the moon and your sign in July, which makes it a time to focus on home and family.

Your home and family life is going to undergo some big changes this year, and most of them are going to be for the best. By July, you’re going to be seeing an amazing triad between your ruling sign, the sun *and* the moon. This means that your love life or home life is going to get an extra special burst of energy, and that could inspire you to make some decisions that ripple through the rest of the year.

Leo

(July 23rd to August 22nd)

There’s a full moon in Leo in the middle of June, and it’s time to shed all that’s been holding you back.

Whether it’s a breakup, an unexpected career pivot, or just some nagging uncertainty that you haven’t been able to shake over the past few years, there will be a full moon in your sign in June that will inspire you to find your inner power again. You’ll have to hit the ground running for the rest of the year, because it’s time to get your sparkle back.

Virgo

(August 23rd to September 22nd)

At the beginning of September, there will be a new moon that touches all ten planets in feminine signs, and it will be a time that your intuition skyrockets.

Over the past few years, you’ve somewhat lost touch your internal compass. You’ve found yourself questioning your actions, wondering if you’ve taken missteps, fearing that you aren’t really on the right path. By the fall of next year, you’re set to seriously reconnect with your inner self, and receive guidance more clearly than ever before.

Libra

(September 23rd to October 22nd)

In February, Aquarius will trine the moon in your sign, and it signals a time that your life will be radically changing for the best.

Everyone had been making such a fuss about the year prior when Jupiter was transiting through your sign – your “emerald” year – but really, you’ll start to see the seeds you’ve planted take root and start to blossom in the next year. You will be in a completely different place at this time in 2018, and it will surpass your wildest expectations.

Scorpio

(October 23rd to November 22nd)

The sun is in your sign come October, and means you’ll round out your Jupiter year with an extra hit of luck.

As you probably know well by now, this is your crown year. Jupiter is transiting through your sign for the majority of 2018, and that means it is time to truly see breakthroughs in every significant part of your life. By October, the sun will merge into Scorpio with Jupiter, and you’ll see a lot of the work you’ve done over the past 12+ months coming to fruition.

Sagittarius

(November 23rd to December 21st)

Mars and Jupiter will conjunct in January to give you splendidly good luck.

This will be a big year for you, Sag, with lots of good change on the horizon. To kick it all off is a conjunction between Mars, the planet of “energy, action and desire,” and Jupiter, the planet of blessings, luck and good fortune. Pay attention to how your life shifts at this time, it should signal the area you’re meant to keep working on throughout the year.

Capricorn

(December 22nd to January 20th)

Mars and Saturn will conjunct in your sign in April, and you’ll regain a sense of focus.

With the task-masters visiting your already driven and heavy-headed sign, it is a time for you to get clear and get real about the changes that need to occur in your life. You’ve been holding onto dreams that aren’t in your highest alignment. Forgive yourself, and accept that they were part of the journey to getting you here now.

Aquarius

(January 21st to February 18th)

The sun will be visiting your sign mid-January, and it will be revelatory for you. 

It’s a new year, and it’s time to make new goals and set your sights even higher for the following months to come. January will be a perfect time to do that, as you prepare to celebrate your birthday and set new and inspired intentions for the year ahead. There will also be a focus on investing and technology, so if either of those are involved in your work or life, pay attention to them closely.

Pisces

(February 19th to March 20th)

There will be a full moon in your sign at the end of August, and the grand trine will be a time of total bliss for you.

By the very end of the summer, you will be on a high with romance, creativity, vision and calmness. There will be a beautiful full moon in Pisces which you should take full advantage of. Start new projects. Reignite past ones. Take the leap in love. Now is your time. TC mark
