Starla’s Starcast: 2018 Yearly Astrology Forecast

Mark your calendars, astro darlings. On Jan 31st the second full moon in January makes astro history. Depending on what area of your chart it affects, it will be a power surge that will affect your life long after it peaks. It is also a blue moon (two full moons in the same calendar month), and the first blue moon Total Lunar Eclipse in more than 150 years, according to scientists. The Total Lunar Eclipse will actually look red, sometimes called a red blue moon. You don’t have to shield your eyes during a Total Lunar Eclipse, and the best time to see it in Seattle is between 4:51am and 5:29am on January 31st.

There are five eclipses in 2018, two Total Lunar Eclipses (Jan 31st and July 27th) and three Partial Solar Eclipses (February 15th, July 12th, and August 11th). You will discover how they will affect you in your sign’s 2018 forecast. The dates are aligned with Pacific Daylight Time. BTW, an eclipse never comes alone; a solar eclipse usually occurs about two weeks before or after a lunar eclipse.

Another important astro event is the arrival of Saturn in Capricorn, where he will reside for three years until March 21, 2020. He started his sojourn on December 19th of 2017. Wherever he lands on your chart, he will ground you and make you face reality. He says it’s for your own good.

December 22-January 19

Well, Capie, you’re going back to school–the school of Saturn the teacher/disciplinarian. It’s a three-year course and when you graduate, you will know exactly who you are and exactly what you want. And if you think you already know, taskmaster Saturn will add polish and upgrade your goals. He will also sort out your associates and get rid of those that aren’t good for you. He’ll make you live up to the standards he assigns, Most of all, he will teach you to be true to yourself. Since he IS your planetary ruler, you may know what to expect. He is one of the reasons you are so successful. Unless, of course, his intensity has driven you to drink. But that’s not likely.

January begins and ends with a Supermoon. On New Year’s Day, January’s first full moon, known as the wolf moon, beamed in Cancer and your 7th House of relationships. Emotions were intense, even for a control freak like you.

The New Moon shines in your homesign and your 1st House of self, joining the Sun, Pluto, Saturn, Mercury, and Venus. What a powerhouse meeting on your behalf. They bring advice on how to get your own way with charm, rather than an ultimatum.

Then on Jan 31st another full moon/Total Lunar Eclipse beams, this time in Leo and your 8th House of other people’s money, erotic sex, and philosophical contemplation. It’s also a blue moon (two full moons in the same calendar month), and the first blue moon Total Lunar Eclipse in more than 150 years, according to scientists. Full moon designate endings and completion. It could also mean an inheritance or dividend.

There will be no full moon in February. A month without a full moon is rare. It only happens in the month of February since it has fewer days then the full moon cycle of 29.53 days.

However, there will be a New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipse on Feb. 15th in your homesign, again in your 1st House of self. New Moons are about beginnings. Then March is another blue moon month with two full moons. One on March 1st in Virgo and your 9th House of long distant travel, publishing, and education, and the blue full moon on March 31st beams in Libra and your 10th House of career and reputation.

This year there are five eclipses—two Total Lunar Eclipses and three New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipses. The two other New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipses fall on July 12th in Cancer and your 7th House of relationships, and on August 11th in Leo, again in your 8th House of other people’s money, erotic sex, and philosophical contemplation. July 27th’s Total Lunar Eclipse will have quite impact on you, because it is also in Leo and your 8th House. These eclipses will close some doors and open others. And they will bombard you with emotions.

Now for expansive Jupiter who is transiting your 11th House of friends and associates until November 8th, when he will move on to Sag and your 12th House of secrets, seclusion, and reflection. Until that happens, position yourself in a new way and network, network, network. Leave no soiree unturned. You can sort everything out later.

When Saturn goes retrograde from April 17th till September 6th, you may have to deal with a few hiccups in your career. He’s not the only planet going retrograde. Jupiter goes retro March 8th till July 10th. Mercury goes retrograde three periods during this year– March 22 to April 15 in Aries and your 4th House of home and family; and in Leo and your 8th House of other people’s money, erotic sex and philosophical contemplation, July 26 to August 19th; and then in Sagittarius and your 12th House of secrets, seclusion, reflection from November 16 to December 6th

Venus the love goddess is also going retro from October 5th to November 16th. Pluto the transformer will go retro April 22 to September 30th. Fiery and impatient Mars goes retro from June 26th to August 27, plus he will wrestle with unpredictable Uranus in May, August, and September.

You know what to do during retrogrades. Be patient. Don’t sign contracts and don’t launch new endeavors, and delay decisions until a week or more after planets go direct.

2018 brings added challenges and responsibilities, but nothing a tried-and-true Capricorn can’t handle.

As for love, start with yourself. If you’re already in a meaningful relationship, cherish it, although Saturn’s retrograde may take its toll. Venus adds to the magic mid-March, although you may need to clear the air at some point. April is better aspected for that.

In fact, the Partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer and your partnership House on July 12th could signal a shakeup in your love life. And if you’re single, unpredictable Uranus could stir up some surprises May 15th to November 6th. You might find yourself suddenly attracted to people that are not your usual type. Maybe you’ll have casual sex or even start an affair. Romance will definitely be unpredictable but exciting, and possibly edgy, if you are willing to go with the flow.

Mars fires up your career when he charges into your homesign on March 17th, where he is exalted. That means the force is with you until he moves into Aquarius on May 15th. Another boost occurs when Venus moves into Libra and your 10th House of career on August 6th. November 8th marks a turning point when Jupiter leaves your 11th House of friends and associates to enter Sag and your 12th House, which will encourage time alone to strategize for the future.

Since you know how to handle your money, you’ll be able to deal with any necessary budgeting for new projects. Saturn has your back. His retrograde may spark concerns. No need to panic. Even if you do, no one will ever know. You’re too cool and collected. What always sustains you is your ambition. You seldom lose sight of them. And 2018 is no exception.

January 20-February 18

Well, airy genius, you’re in a serious situation. Saturn the teacher/disciplinarian has homesteaded in your 12th House of secrets, seclusion and reflection for the next three years. Your party-animal days are over until 2020. If you’re wise, you’ll follow in Einstein’s steps and let that brilliant mind of yours discover some never-before scientific, technological, or astrophysical theory. And with Uranus as your planetary ruler, the sky’s the limit, pun intended. So move over, Neil deGrasse Tyson. Here comes smarty-pants. Besides, Aquarians like to wander off alone. As long as their minds are free to think, they can deal with being grounded by Saturn.

You’ve had a tough few years of change and turbulence. Now it’s time to incorporate the lessons and wisdom you acquired. You may not be so isolated, with lucky Jupiter in Scorpio and your 10th House of career and reputation. He bodes well for your research and ambition, and he will remain there until November 8th, when he moves on to Sag and your 11th House of friends and associates. And with Saturn weeding out deadbeat influences, your star can rise as you live out the scientific manifesto, “believe in disbelief.”

January begins and ends with a full Supermoon. On New Year’s Day, January’s first full moon, known as the wolf moon, beamed in Cancer and your 6th House of work and health. Emotions were intense, an occurrence you try to avoid.

On the 16th, the New Moon shines in your 12th House of secrets, seclusion, and reflection, joining the Sun, Pluto, Saturn, Mercury, and Venus. What a powerhouse posse, bouncing ideas to each other to brainstorm for new beginnings, as New Moons are meant to do.

Then on Jan 31st another full Supermoon that is also a Total Lunar Eclipse will beam, this time in Leo and your 7th House of relationships, both personal and professional. It’s also a blue moon (two full moons in the same calendar month), and the first blue moon Total Lunar Eclipse in more than 150 years, according to scientists. FYI: Full moons always bring endings and completion.

There will be no full moon in February. A month without a full moon is rare. It only happens in the month of February since it has fewer days then the full moon cycle of 29.53 days.

However, there will be a New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipse on Feb. 16th in Capricorn, again in your 12th House. Then March hosts another blue moon month with two full moons. One on March 1st in your 8th House of other people’s money, erotic sex, and philosophical enlightenment. And the blue full moon on March 31st beams in Libra and your 9th House of long-distance travel, education, and publishing.

This year there are five eclipses—two Total Lunar Eclipses and three New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipses. The two other New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipses fall on July 12th in Cancer and your 6th House of work and health; and August 11th in Leo, again in your 7th House of relationships. The last eclipse of the year is another full moon/Total Lunar Eclipse on July 27th.which will have quite an impact on you. It is also in Leo and your 7th House. As always, eclipses will both close some doors and open others.

When Saturn goes retrograde from April 17th till September 6th, you may have to deal with a few hiccups in your career. He’s not the only planet going retrograde. Jupiter goes retro in Scorpio and your 10th House of career from March 8th till July 10th. Mercury goes retrograde three times this year– March 22nd to April 15th in Aries and your 3rd House of communication; and in Leo and your 7th House of relationship from July 26th to August 19th; and lastly in Sagittarius and your 11th House of friends and associates November 16th to December 6th

Venus the love goddess is also going retro from October 5th to November 16th. Pluto the transformer will go retro April 22 to September 30th. Fiery and impatient Mars goes retro from June 26th to August 27, plus he will wrestle with your unpredictable planetary ruler Uranus in Taurus which will kick up some dust in your 4th House of home and family in May, August, and September. And if you don’t already know, Uranus will go retro from August 7th to January 7, 2019. Mr. Unpredictable put the “ch” in chaos. You can’t predict what he plans to do. He may not even know. He’s a rebel and very unique, just like all Aquarians. And he will push all of your buttons, some you might not realize you have. But like you, he will never be boring!

October comes with added pressures, so choose your words carefully. By November, your achievements could garner praise and recognition. And by year’s end, even more so.

Your love life can be contradictory. Your ardor runs deep, so much so you can appear aloof, and potential admirers could be put off. It’s time to let others know what you’re feeling. Otherwise, those eclipses in Leo and your 7th House of relationships would be a waste of time. Plus Venus turns up the heat on your Bunsen burner to highlight your romantic desires, starting in April and lasting until mid-May. And then again mid-June to early July.

Your finances could be confusing this year. Your mind is on other things. You might want to engage a CPA to untangle your financial affairs.

When Jupiter moves into good-natured Sag and your 11th House of friends and associates on November 8th, get out and about. You may have to navigate some confusion, or maybe you won’t even notice, since your brain is full of theories and hypotheses. A new horizon is beckoning to you in anticipation of your discoveries. That’s what 2018 is about.

February 19-March 20

2018 welcomes a new and hopeful period in your life and destiny. Saturn has finally moved out of your 10th House of career and reputation to reside in Capricorn and your 11th House of friends and associates for the next three years. As a mutable sign, you have a huge group of friends. You love them, and hope they reciprocate. Taskmaster Saturn plans to monitor your social circle, so some of your friends may not make the cut if he thinks they are obstructing your future. He wants to make sure you can count on the people in your life. It involves karma, and he’s decided to reward you.

One of your planetary rulers (you have two), Jupiter, is basking in Scorpio and your 9th House of long-distance travel, publishing, and education. He’s counting on your creative instincts to make the most of his visit. On November 8th, he will move on to Sagittarius and your 10th House of career and reputation. You deserve all the good luck he will bring to you. Your other planetary ruler, dreamy Neptune, is lodged in your homesign and your 1st House of self. As God of the Sea, he can be quite changeable, and infuses your aura with sensitivity, mystery, and idealism. There are times you lack confidence, but overflow with spirituality and generosity.

Mars will square Neptune February17th, but he conjuncts Neptune on December 7th. Then Neptune will trine Jupiter in May 25th and August 19th. However, he will go retro in your homesign from June 18th to November 24th, so your two rulers may blur your vision.

January begins and ends with a full Supermoon. On New Year’s Day, January’s first full moon, known as the wolf moon, beamed in Cancer and your 5th House of creativity, frolic, and true love. Of course, it was emotional. You’re known as the emotional waste basket of the astro world.

On the 16th, a New Moon beams in Capricorn and your 11th House of friends and associates, joining the Sun, Pluto, Saturn, Mercury, and Venus. We’ll call it a Pisces posse determined to point you in the right direction, in terms of your social life. And New Moons mean new beginnings.

Then on Jan 31st another full Supermoon that is also a Total Lunar Eclipse will beam, this time in Leo and your 6th House of work and health. It’s a blue moon (two full moons in the same calendar month), and the first blue moon Total Lunar Eclipse in more than 150 years, according to scientists. FYI: Full moons always bring endings and completion.

There will be no full moon in February. A month without a full moon is rare. It only happens in the month of February since it has fewer days then the full moon cycle of 29.53 days.

However, there will be a New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipse on Feb. 15th in Capricorn, again in your 11th House. Then March hosts another blue moon month with two full moons. One on March 1st in Virgo and your 7th House of relationships. Then the blue full moon on March 31st beams in Libra and your eighth House of other people’s money, erotic sex, and philosophical enlightenment. Being a sensual Pisces, you’re ready for action.

This year there are five eclipses—two Total Lunar Eclipses and three New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipses. The two other New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipses fall on, July 12th in Cancer and your 5th House of creativity, frolic, and true love, and August 11th in Leo, again in your 6th House of work and health. The final eclipse of the year is another full moon/Total Lunar Eclipse on July 27th in Leo, which shines your 6th House. As always, eclipses will close some doors and open others.

When Saturn goes retrograde from April 17th till September 6th, he will impact your social connections. But he’s not the only planet going retrograde. Your ruler Jupiter goes retro March 8th till July 10th. Mercury goes retrograde three periods during this year– March 22 to April 15th in Aries and your 2nd House of earned income; in Leo and your 6th House of work and healh from July 26th to August 19th; and lastly in Sagittarius and your 10th House of fame and fortune November 16 to December 6th

Venus the love goddess is also going retro from October 5th to November 16th. Pluto the transformer will go retro April 22 to September 30th. Fiery and impatient Mars goes retro from June 26th to August 27th, plus he will wrestle with your unpredictable Uranus in May, August, and September. And if you don’t already know, Uranus will go retro from August 7th to January 7, 2019. These retros will play stop or go with your life.

Overall, 2018 looks promising for your finances (even more than you hoped for), as does your work and career. Your innate intuition borders on psychic which can be a huge asset to your future. And if your health is a concern, it should improve in the Fall.

Once Jupiter and Saturn go direct, you can move forward with confidence. You may have to work behind the scenes October to mid-November. From then on through the end of the year, success seems assured. It’s a new era for Pisces and you’ve earned it.

As a hopeless romantic, you want to be adored, plus you love sex. There will be opportunities for both. If you’re single, passion beckons to you mid-May to mid-June. If you’re already in a committed relationship, it brings the two of you even closer. Venus and Jupiter make love during the last days of July, so you can do the same. Venus’ retrograde October 5th to November 16th doesn’t bode well for new lovers. You’ve been celibate before. Just save that passion until the timing is right.

Mars’ trek through Capricorn can be empowering, especially in April and early May. And when he moves into your homesign November 15th, he bestows high energy, confidence, and inspiration through the rest of 2018. You’ve thrown off the planetary shackles and not even stern Capie can change that. Actually, it was his idea.

March 21-April 19

January will be important professionally, so make your presence felt. As for your personal life, it’s time to clear the air and leave the past behind. Focus on the important things in your life.

January begins and ends with a Supermoon. January’s first full moon, known as the Wolf moon, beams in Cancer and your 4th House of home and family on New Year’s Day. Emotions will run high, and with your fiery nature, the fur might fly. It more like to be verbal fisticuffs–words you can’t take back.

The New Moon in Capricorn on the 16th falls in your 10th House of career and reputation, joining the Sun, Pluto, Saturn, Mercury, and Venus, and what a hullabaloo that will be. If it hasn’t dawned on you yet, your career has a chance to flourish–if you focus.

Then on Jan 31st another full moon/Total Lunar Eclipse beams, this time in Leo and your 5th House of fun, frolic and true love. Romance beckons, and you don’t need encouragement. It’s also a blue moon (two full moons in the same calendar month), and the first blue moon Total Lunar Eclipse, as I mentioned before, hasn’t occurred in more than 150 years.

There will be no full moon in February. A month without a full moon is rare. It only happens in the month of February since it has fewer days then the full moon cycle of 29.53 days.

However, there will be a Partial Solar Eclipse on Feb. 15th in Capricorn and your 10th House of career. Then March is another blue moon month with two full moons. One on March 1st in Virgo and your 6th House of work and health, and second is a blue full moon on March 31st in Libra and your 7th House of relationships.

These eclipses, as well as the others on July 12th and August 11th (partial solar) and July 27th (another Total Lunar).will have quite an impact on you, Aries. They will open some doors, maybe close others, but all the while challenging your emotions and daring you to reach for the stars.

You may be the baby of the Zodiac, but you know how—at least you think you do–to blaze through the year. You have made astounding progress, surviving the upsets of last year.

Things may not move as fast as you would like in 2018, but don’t get impatient for results and walk away. You need a fresh palate, both professionally and personally. While your ruler Mars is daring you to push forward and succeed, Saturn, the teacher—pressure is his mantra–is will be schooling and challenging you every step of the way. He likes to throw obstacles in your way to see if you can surmount them. Saturn plans a three-year sabbatical in Capricorn and your 10th House of career. Like it or not, he will rid you of things that aren’t good for you. If you follow his lead, your career will soar. His sidekicks are patience and responsibility, and you’d better be nice to them—or else!

The wily rascal Uranus has a few surprises—or disruptions–in store for you as well. He thrives on upsetting the norm. But Pluto plans an exciting transformation for you–from a bossy pants to an honorable leader. If you are patient and follow through, even though the task may seem beneath you, you could be in the right place at the right time to chart your destiny with dignity and determination.

Mercury will throw a glitch into your plans when he goes retrograde in your homesign from March 23rd to April 15th, so don’t start new ventures or sign any contracts during that time. Between March 8th and July 10th, Jupiter will retrograde in Scorpio, which may bring unexpected expenses. And Saturn’s retrograde between April 17th and September 5th in Capricorn may bring significant career changes. Again, beware of new ventures during these periods.

Your love life ranges from to lukewarm to red hot, but the outlook is favorable. Again, patience and discrimination are needed. Late September to late October bodes especially well for relationships, if you can think “us” rather than “me.”

Finances will be especially favorable when the Sun is in Taurus and your second House of earned income. Mars will add oomph and Jupiter a bit of luck come November.

Follow the movements of your planetary ruler Mars closely. On February 17th, he will square dreamy Neptune and obscure your vision. Then on May 16th, he will square unpredictable Uranus which could tempt you to take a huge risk and burn yourself out. With Uranus, it’s hard to predict. But all of your planetary ruler Mars’ modus operandi conflicts with other planets will impact you, just as his friendly planetary liaisons will provide power and passion.

Speaking of passion, the love planet Venus will be romping in your sun sign March 7th to the 31st. Ooh-lala, firecracker. In mid-November, your ruler Mars moves into Pisces and your 12th House of secrets, seclusion, and reflection. Best lay low until New Year’s 2019. Contemplate your future actions. Look, but don’t leap. You’re a reckless rascal, but it’s not the time to be impulsive, no matter how inviting the temptation. No wild goose chases. Overall, 2018 is a year to show the universe that you’ve got the right stuff, Tom Wolfe style.

taurus starla's starcast on equality365.comTaurus
April 20-May 20

Start 2018 by being appreciative of the kindness of others. Not the “kindness of strangers,” as Blanche Dubois so famously declared. But those people in your life who love and support you, good times or bad.

New Year’s Day brings a full super moon in Cancer and your 3rd House of communication. Uranus, the rebel planet, went direct. It behooves you to agree very next day. But the big lunar event happens on Jan 31st, when another full moon beams, a blue moon/Total Lunar Eclipse and a supermoon, this time in Leo and your 4th House of home and family. It packs a punch–a power surge that will affect your life in that it marks an ending of some kind. And it will be highly emotional.

This year brings out your ambitious side, much to the surprise of some, who have you pegged as a steadfast plod-along. They have forgotten that you are the bull of the zodiac, and when necessary you can stampede, not as a destructive force in a china shop, but with a determined goal in mind. Your charming nature, bestowed by the love goddess Venus, has an underbelly of stubborn strength and endurance. At least that’s what your lovers whisper about.

As Polonius wisely advised, “To your own self be true.” This year is a journey for you to understand and share your own self. Let the world see who you really are and how you can impact the big picture. Of course, there will be stress and pressure along the way. But Jupiter, the expansive, good-luck planet will be in Scorpio and your 7th House of relationships until November 8th.

Saturn’s shift into Capricorn and your 9th House of publishing education and foreign matters propels you into curiosity mode. He will shove you into the right place to research and ask questions. He wants you to follow through, and if you don’t, he will discipline you.

On May 15th, Uranus leaves Aries and your 12th House of secrets, seclusion, and reflection, and moves into your homesign for a seven- year sabbatical. He’s going to shake things up. The last time he transited in Taurus from 1935-1942, there was a Great Depression, the start of World War II, and the abdication of King Edward VIII of England. In spite of our dear leader, there’s no need to panic just yet. But be sure to vote in the mid-terms.

Under your practical exterior beats the heart of a romantic. No surprise since your planetary ruler is Venus. Your sensual ruler spends the first three weeks of April basking in your sun sign, endowing romance with her sexy harmonizing. She showers blessings on your 7th House of relationships September 9th through Halloween, and then again during December. With Jupiter also in your 7th House most of 2018, relationships should blossom.

Things may not go as smoothly when Venus goes retro October 5th to November 16th. Keep calm and avoid dangerous bullfights. And when she goes direct, she’ll once again be blessing your relationships with charm and power.

Although there is no full moon in February, there is a Partial Solar Eclipse on the 15th. It’s not as powerful as the total solar eclipse you experienced in August 2017, but it will still ignite your professional ambitions. Two more New Moon Partial Solar Eclipses are ahead, one on July 13th and another on August 11th.

Mars, the warrior planet moves into your 10th House of career and reputation on May 26th. He’s a pushy fellow that will keep you busy dealing with his influences–both pro and con. And when he goes retrograde June 26th, it could temporarily knock the wind out of your sails.

Add that to the effect of the lunar eclipse on July 27th and you could be singing Elvis’ tune, “I’m All Shook Up.” You can turn this challenging energy into action— if those hooves of yours stay firmly grounded. You must also deal with Jupiter’s retrograde between March and July. Stay clear of relocations and job switches during this time. And if you’re tempted to throw a hissy fit with partners, both professional and personal, DON’T.

Thanks to Mars, your finances should change for the better between May and November. That doesn’t mean you should squander your assets in anticipation. If you’re single, mid-year might bring possible love connections. And if you’re already involved, your relationship should strengthen and flourish. But in order for that to happen, you need to rid yourself of the guilt and baggage you’ve been dragging around. That advice also applies to your career. Changes are a coming; so are opportunities. There’s hard work ahead, but you could reap amazing rewards. So don’t lose sight of your future by giving in to self-indulgent comforts. Not when there are greener pastures ahead. Stay on task, and harmony and happiness can be yours by year’s end. Adventure calls, so don’t be afraid to answer, you sexy beast.

May 21-June 20

You’ll be happy to learn that your life will lighten up during 2018. Saturn the teacher has moved out of Sagittarius and your 7th House of relationships. Hopefully, you’ve learned from his sojourn, and your relationships no longer feel as though you’re walking on hot coals. You’ve had to navigate some intense situations, but now you can get off the “All About Eve” bumpy—seatbelts required—train wreck. The Total Lunar Eclipse/blue Supermoon on January 31st will beam in Leo and impact your 3rd House of communication. And with Mercury as your ruling planet, you can think on your feet, firing off intellectual witticisms one after another. Same goes for your motor skills. While one hand does one thing, the other does another, which has garnered adulation in the boudoir. But now that we’ve entered the “no groping” era, you may have to watch your moves. To say nothing of your tongue.

Since the good-will planet Jupiter is nestled in Scorpio and your 6th House until November 8th, you can show off your clever mind in the workforce. And whatever you have done well, you will do even better.

Your ruler Mercury moves into your homesign on May 29th, where he will remain until June 11th. He brings out your brilliance and increases your amazing ability to express yourself. He will bless you again in September during Virgo’s reign over the Zodiac. And when he visits fellow airsign Libra late September to early October, nothing will deter you. It’s time to turn those creative dreams into reality.

Of course, you will have to deal with your ruler Mercury’s three retrogrades. The schedule: March 22 to April 15 in Aries and your 11th House of friends and associates; July 26 to August 19 in Leo and your 3rd House of short trips and neighbors, and November 16 to December 6th in Sagittarius and your 7th House of relationships. During these times, you should not start new ventures or sign contracts. In fact, you need a leeway of two weeks or so before and after any retro period, before proceeding. That said, Jupiter, the good luck planet, will move into Sag and your 7th House of relationships on November 8th. So you can surely weather the last Mercury retro of 2018.

In March, you may be redefining your objectives, as opportunities come your way. When they do, pounce. You’ve never been frightened to take a risk. You’re not above telling a few fibs, but please don’t emulate our alternate truths of dear leader. This year, your adorable airhead, mendacity is not advised.

As Spring ends and Summer begins, the universe encourages you to embark on a new and positive journey. You’ll have to deal with some planetary angst, but Fall promises to be better, despite Mars’ interference.

For over past three years, Saturn in Sagittarius dogged your relationships. He schooled–actually forced–you to learn your P’s and Q’s about entering and sustaining partnerships, both personally and professionally. Now he’s transiting your 8th House of shared income, erotic sex, and philosophical enlightenment, which will challenge you both mentally and physically—sometimes at the same time. Saturn’s visit lasts three years—he moves slowly and methodically. And he’s determined that you don’t overdo. He’s in charge of karma; changes are de rigueur. So you better watch out and better not pout, cause Saturn keeps a naughty and nice list. And that includes your financial prospects. Face it—you’re undergoing a complete overhaul.

When Venus glides through Libra from August 6th to September 8th, romance could flourish–your glibness will delight perspective partners. Once she moves on to Scorpio, things won’t be as magical. You’ll have to wait until bountiful Jupiter enters Sag and your 7th House of partnerships on November 8th for romance to blossom and thrive again.

One caveat. Jupiter retrogrades between March and July, causing mixed feelings about important decisions. If you waiver, feisty Mars may ride to the rescue in May through November to protect you from adversaries and other discordant forces.

June 21-July 22

As 2018 begins, the full Supermoon beams in your homesign, intensifying emotions (as if you needed that). With the moon as your planetary ruler, your emotions correspond to lunar phases; motivating your subconscious, and your many moods–especially your need for security and a desire to nurture others. Luckily, the universe endowed you with an impenetrable shell to protect that seething volcano of lunar emotions.

January 16th welcomes a New Moon in Capricorn and, your 7th House. In fact, there’s a bevy of planets there that will impact your relationships, hopefully for the good. One of those is Saturn, who will force you to toe the mark for the next three years. Your relationships are under the microscope, and Saturn doesn’t miss a thing. He will supervise your partnerships. You could get married, engaged or divorced during this time. Saturn may be tough, but he has your best interests at heart.

When the second full moon arrives on January 31st, it will be in Leo and your 2nd House of earned income. Not only is it a blue supermoon, it is a Total Lunar Eclipse. Changes are eminent, for moon babies this year, and you’re apt to be happy about the outcome. The universe makes no promises, but both the financial and romantic prospects are good.

You will have to deal with stress at times, especially Mercury’s retrograde from late March to mid-April. But you must stay the course with patience and determination. As we say to water signs, keep your head above the water. BTW, late Spring and early Summer bodes well for your career.

March launches a marvelous new saga of your social life, thanks to Venus. She moves into your birth sign May 19th to stay until June 13th. You’ll be hot stuff during that time, not that you aren’t already, but the love goddess plans to turn up the heat.

Jupiter transits Scorpio and your 5th House of romance until November 8th. He’ll go retrograde March 8th to July 10th, but you will survive. Saturn gets really bossy in September, and Mercury retrogrades again from November 16th to December 6th. As the year comes to the end, you will have triumphed over any obstacles.

Leo starla's starcast on equality365.comLeo
July 23-August 22

2018 dares you to fulfill your potential. You are a star, magnificent Leo. You know it, and most everyone else knows it. If they don’t, you’ll be glad to tell them. As long as you don’t go into your superior, narcissistic mode, your sunny disposition attracts others, like a flower ready to pollinate attracts a bee.

The New Year’s Day full Supermoon beams in Cancer and your 12th House of secrets, seclusion, and reflection. The New Moon on January 16th beams in Capricorn and your 6th House of work and health. And the big lunar event on January 31st takes place in your homesign. It’s the second full moon in the month, which is known as a blue moon. But it’s also a Supermoon and a Total Lunar Eclipse. An eclipse in your homesign and your first House is about self, balancing “I am” with your meaningful relationships. And a Total Lunar Eclipse is even stronger influence on your private life. The challenge here is to balance personal initiatives and identity. With the two Total Lunar Eclipses blotting out of the Moon, a resetting of your emotions clears the emotional baggage of the previous six months.

With the Sun as your ruler, this year’s Partial Solar Eclipses will also impact you. The first comes February 15th in Aquarius and your 7th House of relationships. There will be two more–on July 12th in Cancer and your 12th House of secrets, seclusion, and reflection; and August 11th in Leo and your 1st House of self.

Saturn is now in Capricorn and your 6th House of health and daily routines. Chances are, proud Leo, this may also be your House of bad habits. Saturn wants you to kick those to the curb. And there are no buts about it. Resist and Saturn will come down on you with a vengeance. And we’re not talking about lust. Add the word moderation to your vocabulary, if it isn’t already there, Saturn is astro’s teacher/disciplinarian. If you heed his advice, he promises abundance and glory.

There will, of course, be times of frustration and disappointment, but if you keep that drama-queen temper under control, those periods can be a learning experience that will advance your creative dreams and aspirations.

Saturn goes retro mid-April until early September. Mercury goes retro March 23 to April 15th. And after thant he rendezvous with Saturn later in the month. But Mercury goes retro again from July 26th August 19th. These are rather cloudy periods, so it behooves you to take time to contemplate your next mode of action. Your ego may be vulnerable during these transits, but it will bounce back by the end of the year.

Romance fluctuates with Venus’ movements during the year. Some of the best days for love occur when Venus transits your homesign June 14th to July 10th, just in time for Pride festivities. Since the 14th of June also happens to be Flag Day, you should hoist yours for all to see. October could thwart your desires a bit, but by mid-November, lust and love should find a way to be in sync by December.

As for your finances, do yourself a favor and don’t go overboard by throwing your money around to show off, or go on a spending spree to support your obsession—or should we say addiction—to luxury. This will take self-control and discipline, which doesn’t come natural to Leos. But it will be less of a problem when the Sun moves into Virgo.

As your planetary ruler, the Sun’s yearly journey affects your life, as do the movements of other fire signs, such as Aries and Sag. The Sun squares Pluto the transformer on April 11th, which could bring out your have-to-control-everything instincts. This can lead to destructive behavior with deep-seated psychological roots. If you have any sense—and Pluto hopes you do—take the high road and transform conflicts into a rebirth of purpose and ambition.

When fireball Mars bursts into Aquarius and your 7th House of relationships on May 16th, make the most of it. Same goes when the Sun moves into your homesign in July. However, the Sun and Saturn square off on March 29th, and again on September 25th, which can be a nasty piece of business.

Once Jupiter moves into Sag and your 5th House of creativity, frolic and true love on November 8th, there will be no holding you back. Even Saturn will give his blessing. Say thank you to the universe, and ascend your royal throne.

virgo starla's starcast on equality365.comVirgo
August 23-September 22

With Saturn the realist, moving through Capricorn and your 5th House of creativity, frolic, and true love (for three years), you should feel the sparks immediately. As a perfectionist, you want the whole nine yards before you embark on a new direction. Saturn can relate to that, but he’s on a mission to re-structure your earthy ego and help—or should we say force—you to redefine what motivates you and how you should express your creative urges in the most practical way. At first this could seem a bit dull, even restrictive, but excuses are not allowed.

You have worked very hard—that’s your modus operandi, but you deserve a bit of fun. The universe is concerned that you don’t know how to frolic. But anyone who has ever slept with you begs to differ. When inspired, you’re an earthy and enduring lover. The downside of that is that you may cross over to the fun side and forget to answer when responsibility and reason knock. You need a balance, so says Aristotle. And Saturn agrees.

On New Year’s Day, a full Supermoon beamed in Cancer and your 11th House of friends and associates. Full moons are about endings and completion. And when the New Moon in Capricorn bursts through the clouds on January 16th, new beginnings are on their way. And that includes new friends and associates. At month’s end, January 31st, another full supermoon beams. It’s a blue moon (second full moon in a calendar month), and a Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo and your 12th House of secrets, seclusion, and reflection. You need to listen to your inner voice to decide what and who to cut loose emotionally and personally. These insights will be invaluable to you.

March brings another blue moon month. There will be two full moons. One on March 1st in Virgo and your homesign, and a blue full moon on March 31st in Libra and your 2nd House of money.

This year’s Partial Solar Eclipses will also impact you. The first comes on February 15th, a New Moon in Aquarius and your 6th House of work and health. There will be two more on July 12th, a New Moon in Cancer and your 11th House of friends and associates; and August 11th in Leo and your12th House of secrets, seclusion, and reflection..

July 27th marks another full moon Total Lunar Eclipse in visionary Aquarius and your 7th House of relationships. Again, it’s time to rid yourself of emotional baggage, if you haven’t done so already. All the better for your meaningful relationships.

Capricorn is the “Me” planet, and Saturn moves ahead one step at a time, carefully and precisely, with unflappable determination. With him as a mentor, recognition is almost guaranteed, and you’re probably tired of your talent being overlooked or taken for granted. As a Virgo, if you are an entrepreneur, you know how to clean up other people’s messes and turn them into triumphs. And though you sometimes direct your critical and sharp tongue toward others, you can’t always handle retaliation. The secret to overcoming that is to acknowledge your own flaws privately, and think before you speak. With Mercury, the master communicator as your planetary ruler, that may be easier said than done.

Nothing’s perfect, not even you, Virgin dear. When Saturn goes retro on April 18th, there may be frustrations, which will be easier to handle if you remain flexible and wait out the retrograde. Same deal during Mercury’s three retrogrades this year in fire signs. The first is March 22nd to April 15yh in Aries and your ninth House of foreign affairs, publishing, and education; the second July 26th to August 19th in Leo and your 12th House of secrets, seclusion, and reflection; and the third occurs November 16th to December 6th in Sagittarius and your 4th House of home and family. During these periods, you should not launch new ventures or sign contracts. Obviously, these shakeups will involve the Houses where they occur.

The good news is that benevolent Jupiter is transiting Scorpio and your third House of communication until November 8th. With your savvy Mercurial tongue, you can be a power magnet of persuasion. Especially when Saturn goes direct on September 6th while the Sun sails through your homesign.

Romance is possible, especially when Venus and Neptune are conjunct in Pisces and your 7th House on February 21st. Later in the year, Neptune may fog your perspective and lure you into a false fantasy. He’s dreamy fellow, used to the ocean’s watery depths. Venus makes trouble with Saturn late May. But no need to panic. You will radiate charisma when Venus makes her way through your homesign July 10th to August 6th.

Virgos pride themselves on thrift and financial management, and they can usually count on the Sun’s trek through Libra to bring positive returns on investments. There’s a slight deviation this year when Saturn and the Sun square off on September 25th while Venus is retrograde. But she goes direct late November, so cool your jets and follow your budget.

Besides Jupiter is moving into Sag, his natal home on November 8th, which promises support from your family and loved ones. And the Sun will move into Capricorn and your 5th House December 21st, signaling another boost in true love, fun, and creativity.

libra starla's starcast on equality365.comLibra
September 23-October 22

Libra, you now have Saturn in Capricorn transiting your 4th House of home and family for the next three years. There will be more responsibilities as well as possible real estate deals, maybe even an inheritance. Whatever happens, Saturn the teacher/disciplinarian will play a critical role. He’s demanding, and rids you of what isn’t good for you, whether you like it or not. Ultimately, he maneuvers you into a better situation. Maybe you’ll want to move. Your parents or siblings may need help. Or you could decide to redecorate your home. Karmic debts may be involved. Sage astrologers refer to this as the House of firsts and lasts, because beginnings and endings occur. Many new cycles await you, most likely a mix of good and not-so-good. But you won’t have a choice—you will have to deal with them.

January begins and ends with a Supermoon. January’s first full moon, known as the wolf moon, beams in Cancer and your 10th House of career and reputation on New Year’s Day. Emotions will run high—you might even raise your voice.

The New Moon in Capricorn on the 16th falls also falls in your 10th House, joining the Sun, Pluto, Saturn, Mercury, and Venus. Its round table focuses on your career possibilities in 2018.

Then on Jan 31st another full moon/Total Lunar Eclipse beams, this time in Leo and in your 11th House of friends and associates. It’s also a blue moon (two full moons in the same calendar month), and the first blue moon Total Lunar Eclipse in more than 150 years, according to scientists. FYI: Full moons mean endings and completion.

There will be no full moon in February. A month without a full moon is rare. It only happens in the month of February since it has fewer days then the full moon cycle of 29.53 days.

However, there will be a Partial Solar Eclipse on February 15th, again in Capricorn and your 10th House. Then March ushers in another blue moon month with two full moons. One on March 1st in Virgo and your 12th House of secrets, seclusion, and reflection, and the blue full moon on March 31st in Libra and your diplomatic homesign.

There will be five eclipses in 2018—two Total Lunar Eclipses (January 31st in Leo and July 27th in Aquarius. New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipses occur on February 15th, July 12th, and August 11th. Lunar eclipses tend to represent endings and can be quite emotional, and solar eclipses represent beginnings.

Most of last year, expansive Jupiter basked in your homesign, but on November 8th he moved into Scorpio and your 2nd House of earned income.

You are lauded as the diplomat of the Zodiac. You’re a lover of beauty, justice and fairness. You seldom go ballistic. Instead you examine the possibilities before you pass judgment. And you take your time doing so, sometimes bordering on indecision.

Mars, the sizzling, ruling planet of Aries in your 7th House of relationships will energize you, spark fresh ideas, and inspire you to reach out to the right people to advance your projects. When he squares unpredictable Uranus in May, then goes retrograde June 26th to August 27th, things could be a bit fraught. Likewise when Saturn goes retro April 17th to September 6th. But Mars and Saturn will be on course to help and guide you during the last quarter of the year, if not before. And Jupiter enters good-natured Sagie and your 3rd House of communication on November 8th,

Libras love to be in love, no surprise since the goddess Venus is your planetary ruler. You have high standards for your lovers, unless you unexpectedly opt for a sexy, one-night stand with a passionate and stunning looker who stirs your libido. But what you really want is a partner you can love and lust for as well as respect. And he or she must be a spiffy dresser, unless you meet someone who is worth a makeover. Mid-June to early July bodes well for romance. Early August to early September as well. But when Venus goes retro October 5th to November 16th, don’t go out on limb for love. Monitor Venus’ movements and follow her lead. If she balks, you balk. If she caresses, you caress. And so on.

With Jupiter transiting Scorpio and your 2nd House of earned income, your financial prospects are positive. Unless your love of couture lures you into a spending spree. Temperance is required, especially when Jupiter goes retro March 8th to July 10th. Wait until December when both Jupiter and Venus are generous spirits. All in all, your innate charm and decorum will bring out the best in you during 2018.

scorpio starla's starcast on equality365.comScorpio
October 23-November 21

With expansive Jupiter in your homesign, your life is bound to change this year, as his sabbatical lasts unto November 8th. Add to that, Saturn’s three-year transit in Capricorn and your 3rd House of communication, the keys to your success in 2018. Saturn will keep you honest; he will punish you astro style if you don’t follow his lead. As titillating as that may sound, it won’t live up to any S&M expectations.

If you’re an artist, especially a writer, hopefully you have plans to create a novel or a play. Or keep a journal, as long as you have a good hiding place. Of course, the best hiding place is your mind, as your intuition is remarkable. You have always been charismatic, but you might not have been totally honest. Saturn won’t stand for any mendacity, unless it’s a little white lie to spare hurt feelings. Your piercing perceptions can lead to true love, at least for a while, until you sense a betrayal. Even if you’re willing to give lovers a second chance, you will never totally trust them again. Then it’s off with their head. Well not really–just an adamant goodbye.

You are a magnificent manipulator. You are so clever, your prey may be totally clueless. And unless they are a mystery to be solved, you’ll be quickly bored. Again, they won’t even know it. Your feelings run deep, and you rarely expose them,

January begins and ends with a Supermoon. January’s first full moon, known as the wolf moon, beams in Cancer and your 9th House of foreign travel, publishing and education on New Year’s Day. Emotions will run high, and with your stormy depths, they will overflow with intensity.

The New Moon in Capricorn on the 16th falls also in your 3rd House of communication, joining the Sun, Pluto, Saturn, Mercury, and Venus. What an dynamic group that will be. Then on Jan 31st another full moon/Total Lunar Eclipse beams, this time in Leo and in your 10th House of career and reputation. It’s also a blue moon (two full moons in the same calendar month), and the first blue moon Total Lunar Eclipse in more than 150 years, so scientists say.

There will be no full moon in February. A month without a full moon is rare. It only happens in the month of February since it has fewer days then the full moon cycle of 29.53 days.

However, there will be a Partial Solar Eclipse on Feb. 15th in Capricorn, again in your 3rd House of communication.

March brings another blue moon month. There will be two full moons. One on March 1st in Virgo and your 11th House of friends and associates, and a blue full moon on March 31st in your Libra and your 12th House of secrets, seclusion and contemplation. Or as your close friends refer to it, your natural state. You can do all three of these simultaneously, while holding a conversation at a ritzy soiree. A word of advice, don’t overindulge in drugs and alcohol, especially important during the first four-plus months of the year.

Mars and Pluto are your planetary rulers and they will be throwing their weight around all year. But with joyful and gassy Jupiter (the largest and oldest planet in our solar system) in your corner, you may loosen your infamous guard. You may even open yourself to new experiences and associates. However, you may not be as driven with Mr. Lucky as your sidekick. It’s glorious to hear your laugh, chuckle, and chortle (When really amused, some Scorpios’ entire bodies shake.), as long as you don’t lose sight of your goals and decide that your destiny involves becoming a court jester. Yes, Jupiter will open doors, but you must provide the chutzpah once you go through them.

Luckily, you’ve got enough to move mountains. If you know what you want, you can make it happen, no matter the obstacles you have to overcome. And don’t kid yourself, there will be challenges. Saturn the teacher will test your resolve. Mercury goes retrograde three periods during this year– March 22nd to April 15th in Aries and your 6th House of work and health, July 26th to August 19th in Leo and your 10th House of career and reputation, and November 16th to December 6th in Sagittarius and you 2nd House of earned income. You know what to do. Don’t sign contracts and don’t launch new endeavors, and delay decisions until a week or so after he goes direct.

And when Jupiter goes retrograde March 8th to July 10th, you’ll need to stay on task and hold tight. Venus the love goddess is going retro in Scorpio from October 5th to November 16th. Your other ruler Pluto will go retro April 22 to September 30th. And your other ruler Mars will go retrograde from June 26th to August 27th, plus he will wrestle with unpredictable Uranus in May, August, and September. You’ll need to quell your urge to rebel, or it will erupt. And your emotional explosions aren’t pretty. Can you say lava?

All of this planetary action may highlight transgender issues. Also, in May, NASA launches a new space mission to study the interior of Mars. If any sign can survive these planetary machinations and come out ahead, you can. You can start celebrating come late November. In fact you can party on until year’s end.

The universe recognizes your passionate nature. You sizzle. Just one look, as Broadway’s divas sang in “Sunset Boulevard” the musical, can send your admirers into ecstasy. But the real deal happens when your heart connects with your groin for true love. Neptune and your ruler Pluto endow you with charm and allure this year. Dreamy Neptune brings mystery, intrigue, and some confusion. There is a danger of self-deception, and you could set your heart on someone who is already attached or unobtainable. Venus in Taurus March 31st to April 24th bodes well for love, as does her entrance into your homesign on September 9th, but the razzle dazzle wears off after October 5th and fizzles during the love goddess’ retrograde until November 16th. After that, romance can thrive again.

As for money, your ruler Pluto is riding shotgun on your finances. And Jupiter, the good fortune planet, remains in your homesign until November 8th, when he moves into happy Sagie and your 2nd House of earned income. You do have a tendency to brood, but 2018 is certainly not a year to do so.

sagittarius starla's starcast on equality365.comSagittarius
November 22-December 21

With Jupiter in Scorpio inhabiting your 12th House, you have your own spiritual guru to guide you. He’ll be doing so until November 8th, when he moves into your homesign for a year.

Saturn has now moved out of your homesign into Capricorn and your 2nd House of earned income. So you’ve got money on your mind 24/7. Saturn plays a heavy hand in your financial affairs, since you’re a mutable sign who likes to dabble without interference. Sorry, Sagie, that will be nigh on impossible with Saturn overseeing your budget. He also handles your self-worth and innate talents. So it should be obvious to you that you must use those talents to increase your flow of money.

Just like Leroy Jethro Gibbs of “NCIS,” Saturn has rules for you to follow. While your planetary ruler, expansive Jupiter, thrives on the here and now, Saturn is not so flexible. He operates with a wait-and-see mantra–what you want is not always what you need. Luckily, Sagies are optimistic souls, one of the many reasons people of all backgrounds adore you.

Remember the classic fable of the tortoise and the hare? Well, this year you are the tortoise, and according to Saturn, you don’t have a choice. His agendas move slowly and methodically.

You need to plan ahead, when dealing with finances. Saturn urges restraint, but Mars favors impulsive spending. If you overspend, he may not be able to rescue you from dun territory. Hopefully, those behind-the-scenes months with Jupiter in your 12th House will encourage you to think seriously about stability and your financial investments for the future.

January begins and ends with a Supermoon. On New Year’s Day, January’s first full moon, known as a wolf moon, beamed in Cancer and your 8th House of other people’s money, sexual eroticism and philosophical enlightenment. The New Moon in Capricorn on the 16th falls in your 2nd House of earned income, joining the Sun, Pluto, Saturn, Mercury, and Venus. It’s all about money.

Then on Jan 31st another full moon/Total Lunar Eclipse beams, this time in Leo and in your 9th House of foreign matters, education, and publishing. It’s also a blue moon (two full moons in the same calendar month), and the first blue moon Total Lunar Eclipse in more than 150 years, according to scientists.

There will be no full moon in February. A month without a full moon is rare. It only happens in the month of February since it has fewer days then the full moon cycle of 29.53 days.

However, there will be a Partial Solar Eclipse on Feb. 15th in Capricorn, again in your 2nd House of earned income. March brings another blue moon month. There will be two full moons. One on March 1st in Virgo and your 10th House of career and reputation, and the blue full moon on March 31st in Libra in your 11th House of friends and associates. Full moons bring about endings and completion. It’s a declaration of sorts–time to move on.

This year’s eclipses total five. Two more New Moon/Partial Solar Eclipse will occur July 12th in Cancer and August 11th in Leo and your 9th House. Solar eclipses bring new beginnings. Then on July 27th, another Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse will also be in Leo and your 10th House of career and reputation. So this year’s eclipses will both close doors and open doors. Your energy with be charged with emotion, whichever direction you choose.

Your planetary ruler Jupiter turns retrograde March 8th and won’t go direct until July 10th. Saturn turns retro April 17th and won’t direct until September 6th. Mars turns retrograde June 26th to August 27th. And Venus goes retrograde October 5th until November 16th. Don’t forget about Mercury, who goes retro three times, especially his last retro period when he flips his motions from Scorpio to your homesign November 16th to December 6th. Whew!

In terms of relationships, Venus will encourage you come August. And Jupiter will do so early November. They won’t do your wooing for you, but will look favorably on your efforts. Overall, 2018 is a mixed bag for romance. But it behooves you to move carefully when your heart is involved. And a good time to ponder love is during a retrograde.

Career prospects are fortuitous, as long as you don’t lord it over others and let success go to your head. You can also be a blurt-mobile, speaking before thinking. That tiresome adage “Look before leaping,” applies to you, Sagie. Think strategy, weigh the pros and cons of every opportunity, which brings up another tiresome adage, “Too good to be true.”

One thing your lovers adore is your cheerful attitude. Yes, you sometimes lose your temper, but you wake up singing, ready to start afresh each day. Just because Saturn is monitoring your life, doesn’t mean you have to toil day and night. Get out and socialize, especially in March. Venus encourages your romantic overtures when she glides through airy Gemini from April 24th to May 18th, but watch your mouth May 7th when Mercury squares Pluto and Venus squares Neptune.

Above all, don’t despair; there are plenty of good days in 2018, and some promise to be fantastic. Early September bodes well for you as does the end of October, the end of November and the Winter Solstice. Like the Bard wisely wrote some 400 years ago, “All’s well that ends well.”
