(Part 2 Horoscopes)
Your Love Horoscopes for the Week of November 27th
by Sarah Bartlett.
From The Astrology Room
With Mercury’s focused link to Saturn in Sagittarius this week, we begin to think seriously about how to make the best out of our relationships and be more philosophical about how we go about doing just that too.
Time may be a factor, but patience is a virtue in this particular case, as Mercury will go retrograde at the beginning of next week and hold us back a little. Even if it takes another few months before we get what we truly want, the waiting will be worthwhile.
Communicate your true needs rather than assume your partner or new admirer or just a dating friend, or knows what turns you on. That way, together, you can form an unbreakable bond and forget the mind games. Whoever we are, whatever we think ourselves to be, there’s always a bit of us we don’t really know. This week, fashion your love life so you begin to see the truth.
As much as people keep raving about how everything is changing for the better, you aren’t convinced. At the moment, it seems that remaining a pessimist means you can’t get let down. But it’s actually time to engage in a risk-taking, madcap romance which could lead to spectacular times. Not only that, but you’ll also be liberated from all your doubts and fears about long-term love.
This week, the planets reveal it’s time to take a deep breath and re-ignite good intention, then act accordingly. If single, do you want to guard your independence but take on a lover, or are you looking for a traditional commitment? Answers come thick and fast as you look around and realise there is someone out there. If attached, you begin to see how to change your relationship for the better.
As soon as you feel you’re getting involved, there’s a tremendous desire to totally possess the other, or get out as quickly as possible. And this week, you’ll probably notice this reactionary behaviour more acutely than you have for a long time. Yet at the same time the desire to be in that place of a happy ever after land lures you ever on. Making a choice could be hard, but prevaricating may mean you miss out on passion.
This week, you feel like blurting out the kind of honest, yet tactless truths about what you want and don’t want. For example, ‘I love you today, but I might not tomorrow, because I can’t guarantee it’s forever’. Quite frankly, this week is not going to be easy. But with the planets reminding you that love is fragile, opt for the romance of love rather than any wrangling.
Express those thoughts or feelings that hurt or niggle you. Either to yourself or to a close friend who won’t judge or disapprove. Accept that the mysterious nature of love is part of you as it is of someone else. As one ancient philosopher said, ‘You yourself are another little world and have within you, the sun, the moon and also the stars.’ Be part of that cosmic truth and let yourself shine with love.
Right now, you’re one of those people who may have itchy feet or who is ready to move on. And you can have what you want if you are prepared to change your outlook on love and what it means to you. The root of successful relating is to first have a good relationship with yourself. In the next few months, someone special will be the catalyst for this major turning point in your life.
You’re in one of those hyper-critical moods. If single, every possible right person, becomes wrong. And all this cursing about life, people and love, is simply because you hate to be imperfect yourself. You long for a perfect world where all is ideal and good, and you’re at the centre of someone else’s existence. But, the hard truth is this week, other people have themselves to think about.
This week, learn to respect that your partner or admirer have their own ego to boost too. As someone once said, “at the feast of ego, everyone leaves hungry.” So, this week remember that lovers, new admirers and the world out there, are part of you, as you are part of them. This is the joy of accepting an ancient connection to the world soul, and to your own too.
You need to know where you stand. For a start, does someone love you and only you, and that when they promise something do they mean it? Now you’re thinking, can you really demand this? Aren’t you supposed to be accepting, kind, and place no conditions of love? But for once in your life you’re going to be a little selfish and make it clear you have needs. Why not start today?
Don’t stop to question yourself. This is your chance to romantically leap ahead and do all those crazy things you never believed possible. In fact, many moons ago, you would have been horrified at the thought of doing something which you can now take in your stride. Forget your fears, cast off self-doubt and remember that thing about the law of attraction? It’s coming your way.
Destiny is what you make of your life; it’s the melting pot of your choices and who you are, mingled with the encounters you meet on your way. And right now you will be led down paths you hadn’t consciously chosen, but somehow were led without knowing how or why. This week, be led, but don’t become ‘a stray.’ Time to make a conscious choice where fate and free will merge to make love real for you.

Stop chasing the money and start chasing the passion Virgo. It is then that you will find your true riches. Children bring good news and are forecast to be the source of much joy.

LIBRA (September 24th-October 23rd)

Ring now so we can make your future great.
PISCES (February 20th-March 20th)
Try not to let jealousy blur your good judgement. It would be far better for you to wait and let others prove, over the coming days, what they will or won’t do for you Pisces.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, November 27th
The Moon spends the full day in your quiet solar twelfth house, Aries, and this points to a continued need for some time to recharge your batteries, so to speak, on an emotional level. This can be a day when you’re more retiring than usual, and it’s right for you. You’re also in a beautiful position to do detail work or fill in the details of a plan. Your eye for design is excellent right now. Your mindset is increasingly practical as the day advances, and patience is easy to muster up if it means focusing on priorities. There can be a sense that you need to give up something pleasurable in order to gain in another area of life, and decisions can be difficult as a result, but they also tend to be good for you in the long run. Advice now tends to be helpful and mature. There may be a reality to face about a far-out fantasy and your feet return to the ground, which can be a bit disappointing. The good news is that you are likely to have better information to move your plans forward in practical ways. While a hole in your thinking or education may become obvious now, it does give you the chance to fill it in.
The Moon spends the day in your social sector, boosting your desire to connect with others and enjoy some networking, Taurus. Decisions or serious conversations about financial or relationship matters may be necessary as Mercury and Saturn move towards an alignment, however. It’s a good time for thinking about ways to cut back on excesses or to be more mindful of responsibilities. A partner may be strict with you, or you may feel temporarily unsupported, but it can lead to a stronger grip on what’s realistic and where you stand. While there could be some realities to face today, this is the start of fresh new thinking or a new direction on a mental level. Ultimately, you gain more confidence in your newly strengthened plans. This is particularly the case with business affairs and also your feelings about a person or relationship. With Saturn approaching the end of its transit of your solar eighth house, any work you’ve put towards reducing debt or strengthening a relationship has its payoffs.
The Moon spends the day at the top of your solar chart today, Gemini, and things get a little more serious than usual as you are made aware of your responsibilities. As well, your ruler, Mercury moves into alignment with stern Saturn in your partnership sector, and serious thoughts or conversations about relationships are likely to figure strongly. There may be decisions made about a relationship or where you’re headed on the relationship front. The practical side of your connections is in focus, and you may be making joint plans, decisions, and commitments. You may be feeling a little somber now, but you are also more equipped to take care of practical details. Sometimes others’ criticisms or indifference can motivate you to make improvements. Alternatively, there can be a smart agreement reached today, or you see eye to eye with a partner on an important issue.
The Moon spends the day in your adventure sector, dear Cancer, and this keeps your spirits high, even with a somewhat somber tone to the day due to Mercury’s alignment with Saturn. Indeed, this can be a time to sober up on a particular area of your life so that you see things a little more clearly, but do be aware that you may first swing to an overly negative viewpoint before seeing things in a balanced way. For the most part, decisions made now tend to be considered and sensible when related to work, health, and habits. Certain realities faced now can lead to a freeing feeling of acceptance of things precisely as they are. Even if you wrestle with some criticisms now, they’re likely to be of the constructive variety, and even if they aren’t, you have the power to turn them to your benefit. Resolve to take better care of yourself. Conversations can be serious or businesslike, but constructive.
More serious thoughts tend to figure strongly today, dear Leo, or conversations tend to take the serious route. You can be unusually contemplative now. You may undoubtedly hear more criticisms swirling around you now, but you can make these constructive even if they’re not intended that way. In fact, today is excellent for seeing flaws and working on fixes. For some of you, love relationships are a little weightier than usual. If you’re inclined to voice your frustrations today, take a little extra care that you don’t do this in a negative way that turns others off from helping or supporting you. If you’ve been mulling over a decision recently, this can be a time for coming to a conclusion. It can feel wonderful to commit to a person or project or to make a meaningful resolution. Perhaps the best use of the Mercury-Saturn energy today, however, is to think up practical ways to improve your leisure time, relationships, and enjoyment of life.
The Moon spends the day in your partnership sector, dear Virgo, and you’re in the mood for some company. You’re also in the position to gain a different perspective on your life. A Mercury-Saturn alignment casts a somewhat somber tone to the day, whether it’s because of a desire to make solid plans about a practical matter or due to news or conversations that broach more serious topics. You may feel the need to act with authority today or to be strict and firm. Decisions related to family or the home may be approached now. Fortunately, you are in the position to assess issues realistically and with much practicality. Honing in on your priorities may not be a lot of fun, but it’s helpful now. There can be criticisms to deal with, but as a result, you may decide to strengthen uncertain areas, and this boosts your confidence going forward.
The Moon spends the day in your work and health sector, dear Libra, and this gets you in a productive frame of mind — an ideal climate for the Mercury-Saturn alignment occurring today that encourages you to get serious. There is good energy with you for firming up a project or clinching a deal. You’re in great shape if you have important work or plans to attend to that require particular focus and concentration. Conversations tend to be serious and others may be a little heavy-handed, however. Complaints and criticism are more likely than usual when Mercury and Saturn come together. Sacrifices may need to be made in order to realize growth, but they may very well be worth it. Although the day requires more discipline and a realistic outlook than usual, if there are ways to be both firm and kind to yourself and others at the same time, you, as a Libra, will find them!
With Mercury and Saturn moving into alignment in your sector of self-worth and resources, dear Scorpio, you can benefit from taking a critical look at your finances, income, or attitude towards earning. Circumstances may be such that you need to get serious about — or have a good think about — money or business issues. The good news is that you are seeing things for what they are, rather than what you would like them to be, and this realism helps you to tackle problems with maturity. Be realistic, but not pessimistic. Avoid negative thinking, but do be honest with yourself. You need to tend to your own interests first right now. If there are criticisms, which is frequently the case when Mercury and Saturn get together, turn them into a positive by strengthening your position.
The Moon spends the day at the bottom of your solar chart, Sagittarius, and there is a strong tendency to keep to yourself or to stick with what you know. This works exceptionally well with a Mercury-Saturn alignment occurring in your sign, which is a somewhat cautious and practical influence. It would be wise to take a closer look at personal plans to see where you might make some improvements. Your mind is a little more critical than usual, and you can use this to your benefit. You may present yourself with an air of authority or with seriousness today, but this may mask your true feelings, so do watch for misunderstandings. As well, be careful not to criticize or come across as harsher than you intend.
The Moon spends the day in your communications zone, dear Capricorn, and this influence encourages you to stay or get in touch. With the planet of communication, Mercury, in alignment with your ruler, Saturn, information becomes an even stronger focus now. Decisions about long-standing problems and the past may need to be made now, and you can have a strong urge to settle issues that have been left unresolved. Words have increased impact now, so choose them carefully. It may be better to keep silent about some issues now, as there can be a tendency for others to see things in absolute terms and compassion and understanding can be missing just for the time being. However, this can also help you to make practical choices. Avoid over-thinking things, but do aim for self-honesty.
The Moon spends the day in your resources sector, dear Aquarius, and you’re inclined to put emotions to the side so that you can take care of your practical affairs more effectively. Helping you along is a Mercury-Saturn alignment, encouraging you to adopt solid, concrete, and realistic plans for the future. There can be useful advice coming from a friend or your networks, or discussions with friends can turn to business or can become business-like. Agreements (very practical ones!) may be reached. This planetary alignment in your sector of friends, hopes, and dreams prompts giving all or some of these matters further thought and specialized attention.
The Moon spends the day in your sign, dear Pisces, highlighting your emotional needs and wants. Even so, a Mercury-Saturn alignment at the top of your solar chart keeps you on your professional toes. It makes sense to be more aware than usual of what you’re communicating today, as your words have more impact than usual and can stick around for much longer than usual, as well! People may be taking things at face value rather than seeking out the fine or subtle points, which is not up your alley, but necessary to note. Career projects may be subject to scrutiny, and flaws may be revealed now that need fixing. There can be criticism to deal with, but this can motivate you to work on fixes, if only to protect yourself from further scrutiny. Ultimately, all of this works in your favor. It’s true that a day influenced by Mercury-Saturn can involve hearing more complaints than usual, but it’s also a good time for firming things up and getting back on track.
If You Were Born Today, November 27th
Although you march to the beat of a different drummer, you are also a very sensitive and emotional person. Highly original, your creativity and ability to think outside the box earns you respect from others. However, your emotions sometimes get the best of you. Impulsiveness and a tendency to borrow from your future can get you into trouble as well. You are friendly and warm, but you can also be quite difficult to read, as your nature is rather contradictory. On the one hand, you are sensitive and have your eye on security. On the other, you have an undeniable adventurous and independent streak. Famous people born today: Bruce Lee, Robin Givens, Jimi Hendrix, Alexander Haig, Jaleel White.
Your Birthday Year Forecast:
Your birthday occurs around a First Quarter Moon this year, and you are reaching an important turning point in terms of personal growth. You may be more emotional this year, and should watch for unnecessary conflicts and making hasty decisions as a result. Otherwise, this is a year of great energy, motivation, and growth. You are more ambitious and desirous of action in the year ahead. This should be a busy, dynamic period in your life.
Something big is in the works regarding your love or social life. You’ll have a chance to heal old wounds with regards to love and friendship this year. You’re also bound to find new ways of making money. Relationships are mutually beneficial and naturally equal, fair, and balanced during this period of your life. There can be a stronger inclination towards togetherness and sharing.
Your ability to concentrate and focus is enhanced this year. You may, in fact, have a lot of work to do in relative solitude or you might often retreat to study, work, or think. You might be required to travel for business purposes. Thinking in realistic and practical terms is your best bet, and the need for tangible results for your efforts is strong.
You may be actively involved in teamwork and collaboration with others this year. Passions are stirred and you’re in a good position for connecting with others to accomplish your goals. There can be the beginning of a significant new relationship or the intensification of an existing romance.
However, this can be a year when bursts of restlessness, rebellion, and impatience figure prominently. You have a tendency to take risks and to act on sudden impulses without considering consequences. You assert your will and individuality powerfully, and you are ready to fight for freedom. There may be changes in work schedules, or life’s circumstances could challenge you in such a way that you need to change your goals or actions. This can also be a time when you tend to resist others and challenge them if they are trying to hold you back. Arguments and confrontations are likely. Technology may be a source of irritation, and electrical appliances may break down or not work up to par.
Energy fluctuates this year. Anger can erupt seemingly from nowhere and it gives you the chance to deal with it. If you aren’t too rash or impulsive, this can be an excellent year in which to free yourself from restrictive circumstances. You could also have more courage than usual to do things that break the routine, and confrontations engaged in this year could clear the air and help you to move forward.
Developing existing businesses is highly favored this year. Long-term alliances can be made. This is a potentially excellent year for making prosperous connections.
This is an excellent year in which to advance projects revolving around communications – writing, speaking, selling, and so forth. Your reputation may be enhanced through word of mouth. Making new contacts through learning and mental pursuits figures strongly as well.
This can be a good time for updating your electronics and technology in ways that open up new avenues for communication or ease. Wonderfully creative ideas can fill your head this year.
Advances in intellectual and mental pursuits are likely this year, as you make steady progress that has long-lasting results. The year is good for enjoying wonderful social or love opportunities. Your faith increases and you seek out more meaning from your life. You’re in good shape for staying on track and meeting your responsibilities as well. Useful contacts can be made during this period. Your love or social life grows and satisfies.
2017 is a Number Three year for you. Ruled by Jupiter. This is a year of sociability. It is a friendly time when you find it natural and easy to enjoy life and other people. The focus is on personal freedom, reaching out to others, making new friends, and exploration. You are more enthusiastic and ready for adventure than you are in other years. It’s likely to be a rather lighthearted year when opportunities for “play” time are greater than usual. It’s also a favorable year for expressing your creativity. Advice – reach out and connect but avoid scattering your energies.
2018 will be a Number Four year for you. Ruled by Uranus. This is a year of work and development. It’s “nose to the grindstone” time. It’s a time to pay special attention to practical matters, and it’s not a time to be lazy or especially gregarious. Sometimes, it can be a year that feels hard, monotonous and routine, and/or lonely. Positive new relationships are often not formed in a Four personal year. However, it can be a wonderful year for building, development, and laying a solid foundation for future successes. Advice – get yourself organized, work to build your resources, keep busy.

Your Daily Horoscopes for Tuesday, November 27th
You tend to keep to yourself in the first half of the day, dear Aries. This is an excellent time for letting go of frustrations and tension, especially with a Mars-Neptune connection helping you wind down. It’s an imaginative time, as well. Retreating a little from mainstream activities so that you can regroup on an emotional level makes sense now if you can manage it. The Moon moves into your sign just before noon, and emotions surface, feeling urgent. These desires will pass, often as quickly as they came on in the first place, but pay attention to which ones remain. You’re bound to feel more get up and go now. You may not know where you’re headed just yet, but there is good energy for exploration and discovery. No longer content to take the back seat, you are ready to take action. People are valuing the very qualities that come naturally to you today, and this can subtly boost your popularity.
You might enjoy others’ company more than usual in the first half of the day, dear Taurus. Casual communicating works well now. You want to share thoughts with others rather than feel the burden of all the decision making. Doing favors for people in your life may be a good way to express yourself at the moment, particularly with a Mars-Neptune parallel that encourages contributing, helping, and generosity. Shortly before noon, the Moon moves into your solar twelfth house for a couple of days, making it a good time for reflecting on your personal life, particularly with your future in mind. This is a signal from the cosmos to take things easy, or easier than you have been recently, in preparation for a new cycle that will begin with the Moon enters your sign on Thursday afternoon. You are attracted to activities that help you relax and take a load off. It’s an excellent time for regrouping and refreshing, but not the best for getting noticed.
In the first half of the day, Gemini, you’re more aware than usual of your responsibilities and performance. As such, the sooner you meet your obligations, the more emotionally satisfied and calm you’ll feel. You may be moved to take charge or situations put you in the position of leader. Just before midday, the Moon moves into your social sector, and the need for non-competitive outlets for self-expression emerges. In fact, the less expected of you, the more naturally you contribute, share, and connect with others. You’re likely to find the remainder of the day gently stimulating. While you crave action, you’re also seeking creative and imaginative outlets. You enjoy the feedback you receive from others, which tends to jumpstart your own thinking processes. You are likely to want to keep busy and connected today — a welcome break after a day of taking things quite seriously.
The first half of the day favors spontaneous expression, dear Cancer, although it can take a bit of time to loosen up after a Mercury-Saturn alignment. Honesty is charming and winning now. Ultimately, it frees you from unnecessary guilt. Look to others or different schools of thought for a different, fresh perspective on your life. By midday, the Moon will have moved into your career and reputation sector, and others’ expectations tend to pull you in a particular direction. You may be more aware of the rules, and you tend to want to put in the necessary effort to make life a little more orderly. You’re experiencing more “get up and go” related to business, finances, or career. You’re likely to feel proud of your performance now, or you’re motivated to do your best.
With the Moon in your solar eighth house, thinking, journaling, or ruminating can get you into better touch with your inner needs, wants, and motivations, dear Leo. Until midday, you’re likely to gravitate towards quiet, healing activities, after which you’ll want to pull yourself up and out. As the Moon moves into fellow Fire sign, Aries, you feel the need to feed your spirit, and a Mars-Neptune parallel can help nudge you towards activities that do so. Larger issues come into play, and you are prompted to think about your bigger goals and plans. Doors can open in your life for personal growth opportunities, and a broad mind is a prerequisite. This is a good time for finding inspiration through something you read or experience.
There may have been some heavy thinking or serious food for thought, dear Virgo, and now you’re ready to relax a little and get perspective. A partnership or friendship deserves some special attention in the first half of the day, especially. This is a strong day for bonding with someone, especially if you are tuning into nonverbal cues. In the second half of the day, the Moon is now moving through your solar eighth house, and you seek out a real connection with someone or a project. You’re drawn to activities that absorb you. This two-day transit is beneficial, as you can learn a lot about yourself and others through observation. Today, you might have a significant memory or personal revelation that motivates you.
You continue to focus on the details of your life and getting things into order in the first half of the day, dear Libra, and this leads to a stronger sense of purposefulness. Just before midday, the Moon moves into your partnership sector, and this tends to bring you into a more sociable mood, or one in which you’d prefer to share your ideas or activities with someone. As well, a Mars-Neptune parallel points to a greater need to be supportive and helpful. This is a time in which establishing balance in your life is a stronger focus. There are times to go solo, and there are times to be with others, and today’s energies favor the latter. Others may challenge you, but they also make you a little stronger. Teamwork is especially favored in the second half of the day.
The Moon continues to transit your creative and romantic sector in the first half of today, dear Scorpio, and you’re likely in the mood for some special attention or recognition for your more unique qualities. This is not the time for blending in. You are displaying more confidence, vitality, and optimism. Just before noon, the Moon moves into your work and health sector, and you become more sensitive to details that may be out of whack. A focus on daily routines or details can be comforting. Taking care of business or chores can sometimes help take the pressure off overthinking other areas of your life, and that’s likely the case today. You tend to go out of your way to support or help others.
There is some caution or introspection to the first half of the day, Sagittarius, and you’re inclined to set priorities and enjoy simple activities. You don’t feel any pressure to push or reach beyond boundaries, and this is useful to you now. You’ll crave more emotional involvement with the rest of the world in the second half of the day, however. The Moon moves into your creativity sector, and tensions might be released through creative, entertaining activities. Pulling yourself away from problems or a tendency to overthink can sometimes give you a better perspective. You can feel especially inspired by family and friends now.
The Moon in your communications sector this morning stimulates a desire to communicate, connect, and collect information, dear Capricorn. Stay flexible and be spontaneous if you feel right about something in your gut. There can be a nice feeling of camaraderie with a partner or friend. In fact, today is excellent for supporting and helping others. With the Moon moving into your home and family sector towards midday, find familiar, comforting activities that help build confidence from the ground up. Focus on tending to your domestic or personal needs. This Moon position can encourage you to back away from problems coming from the outside world so that you can see them from a better perspective. Today and the next couple of days are good for feeling rooted and secure, but you won’t necessarily be content unless you accomplish something productive, so aim to meditate in motion now.
You are more inclined to stick with the familiar than to venture out looking for new experiences early today, dear Aquarius. Even so, you could be feeling close to someone who seems to be sharing the same values as you or who looks to you with particular respect. You benefit from a pleasing sense of clarity or a hook on reality that boosts your feelings that what you’ve been recently doing has been worthwhile. Just before noon, you enter a more curious lunar period, and it’s now time for branching out and entertaining new possibilities. Reaching out to others can be rewarding. You are coming across as articulate and intelligent, and others respond positively. You’re radiating good, calm energy now.
The Moon in your sign until shortly before noon tends to magnify your emotions, sometimes at the cost of reason, dear Pisces. However, this is an important time for getting in touch with your emotional wants and needs, keeping in mind that they may seem a bit larger than life for now. In the second half of the day, your emotional requirements don’t appear as urgent. It’s a good time for reminding yourself of what you already have in your life, and for finding ways to appreciate these things. You begin to fill up with more patience. You’re inclined to play it safe on an emotional level, and this is an essential exercise as you work on making your life more comfortable and secure. Life no longer feels like a pressure cooker, and a Mars-Neptune connection today helps you wind down, as well. You benefit from reasonable pacing now.

On the edge of greatness

Without a doubt, 2018 will be a year to get down to business. A series of planetary switch-ups allows for notable support in practical matters. You’ll build foundations in your life by trusting your instincts. You’ll also seek out an innovative approach to your finances — all with great potential for success.
Back on October 10 of 2017, Jupiter, the planet of possibilities, began swimming in the emotional depths of Scorpio, and remains in this sign until November 8, 2018. With Jupiter moving swiftly through Scorpio as the year begins, you’re already feeling quite comfortable with profound, intimate, emotional exchanges in your relationships. You’ll continue to feel blessed when you explore hidden terrain, since you’ll likely find buried treasure that will help you grow spiritually, psychologically, and physically.
Your personal powers are strong
2018 will be a year of heightened intuition, so if you’ve wanted to cultivate your psychic gift, the universe is offering to be your mentor. Pay close attention to May 25 and August 19 when Jupiter will be at a perfect trine to Neptune. Faith, intuition, and luck are your perfect trifecta around these dates.
Jupiter and Pluto will also work together well this year — a stark contrast to the power struggle they engaged in during 2017. On January 15, April 14, and September 12, these planets will help you remember that you had the power within you all along. More importantly, this planetary connection will encourage you to use it in a way that strengthens you and those in your circle. Business and financial ventures will be favored.
On November 8 Jupiter enters Sagittarius, the sign Jupiter naturally rules. This will be an auspicious time when you notice greater success and support in any endeavor that opens your mind. It’ll be time to explore new horizons!
Building foundations for the future
While Jupiter encourages us to grow through expansive opportunities, Saturn, his counterpart, demands that we grow through patience, discipline, and hard work. On December 19, 2017, Saturn moved into Capricorn, the sign he naturally rules. Until 2020 we’ll have dominating lessons about building solid foundations that will serve and protect us through any storm. As the New Year begins, we’re still getting used to the subtle but profound difference Saturn makes when he moves from Sagittarius into Capricorn.
Consequently, in 2018 you’ll know that it’s time to approach your life and responsibilities with a plan. Fortunately, you probably feel ready, willing, and able to do so. As long as you come to the cosmic workplace on time each morning ready to do the work necessary, Saturn in Capricorn will help you build a structure in a certain area of your life that you’ll be able to rely on for the long haul.
Revolutions and revelations
Later this year, expect a material revolution to begin. From May 15 to November 6, Uranus, the planet of innovation and sudden change, will give us a hint of what he can do when in the practical, financially-oriented sign of Taurus. Expect a shift in the financial market — especially anything that has to do with technology and science. On a personal level, how you maintain physical and material security is likely to change. You can choose to reinvent yourself in these areas or you can resist. If you fight it, though, you’ll only feel more rattled and ultimately left behind when the rest of the world moves into more progressive terrain. Lastly, Mars and Venus will both retrograde in 2018, making certain times tricky to successfully negotiate new business ventures and romantic endeavors. Avoid launching anything new from both June 26 – August 27 while Mars is retrograde, and October 5 – November 16 when Venus retrograde.
Remember, success in life is most supported when we swim with — and not against — the tides. Why create unnecessary strain? Don’t work in contradiction with planetary cycles. Instead, let them work for you.

2018 Love Horoscope
The deepest level of love
By Maria DeSimone
Expansive opportunities to forge genuine relationships were available to all back in 2017, thanks to Jupiter moving through the partnership-oriented sign of Libra. As 2018 begins, there will be an extraordinary occasion to create remarkable depth and intimacy in any romantic connection you might have made. Jupiter will move through Scorpio until November 8, 2018, supporting the desire to delve into everything that terrifies and excites you about intimacy.
With Venus turning retrograde in Scorpio from October 5-31, and then retrograde in Libra until November 16, you’ll also have an opportunity to practice facing the skeletons in your love life … or the debris that keeps you from enjoying genuine love and commitment with someone. Lessons connected to learning how to share resources with your lover, both emotional and physical, are strong this year. You also have the chance to overcome trust issues, fear of betrayal, and any sexual hang-ups that are blocking your ability to enjoy making love.
Two eclipses in playful, romantic Leo round out the year’s possibilities for pleasure in matters of the heart. A Lunar Eclipse on January 31 and a Solar Eclipse on August 11 can bring you an affair to remember … or the love of a lifetime.

We have witnessed a widening schism in politics, social upheaval, and the economy for some time — it was the dominant factor in the 9-year cycle from 2008 until 2017. However, the following 9-year cycle from 2017 through 2025 doesn’t slow this polarization one bit: instead, it will be dominated by what could be called the “information chaos…”
A surge of misinformation
Two hundred years ago, information came to a person sparingly, a bit of gossip one day, a note sent by a pigeon, perhaps a two-page newspaper once a month. Today, data comes at us like hail in a thunderstorm. We are relentlessly bombarded with information through our devices, written material, television, computers, social media… and to make matters worse, much of it is false. This complicates our ability to accurately comprehend what is happening around us. When facts are not clearly discernable, doubt becomes the only consistency. How do you make choices when you can’t trust the information you receive?
The choices you make today will create the world you live in tomorrow. This has always been the case. The challenge today is that things are moving at a dramatically increased speed, and often in the dark, as waves of distorted data make it difficult to see clearly. And with life moving this fast, crashes are exponentially more damaging. To put it in a nutshell: At a time when personal choices carry heavier consequences than ever, our ability to separate good information from bad has been severely hampered.
Brace for change
Changes tend to have a perceptible footprint — there is a buildup, then the event, followed by a period of stabilization. Sometimes a change seems to happen so quickly or dramatically it feels sudden and unexpected. While such changes may appear to come out of nowhere, they have a backstory; we just weren’t watching. In 2018 we’ll see quite a few of those, following each other so rapidly it will be difficult to keep track. To help you prepare, let’s take a look at the numbers of 2018 to see how they will affect the global community, as well as your personal cycles.
The numbers of 2018
2018 is a 2 Universal Year, reducing from the number 11 (because 2+0+1+8=11, and then 1+1=2). With the sensitive, finely-tuned, emotionally-conscious 11 behind this peace-loving 2, you can count on an emotionally-charged year that touches our hearts more than previous years — even more than 2017, which is saying something.
Passion dominates in 2018, which is good when driven by positive forces, but not so great when negative powers are at play. Most importantly, no one gets to sit on the sideline without being affected by these changing times. With a 4 at the top of the Numerology chart for 2018, and a 5 at the bottom of the chart, chaos rules. We are riding a speeding train on a rickety track. Just about anything you can imagine could happen, and probably will.
The voices of greed, selfishness, fear, and separation will get louder and louder this year. But we will also see a surge in our desire to learn, to advance, to overcome, to grow, connect, and rectify. A growing force floats unseen under the surface in search of common ground, of healing and sharing spreading in unlikely places.
2018 continues a long spiral of grueling extremes, further dividing us into those led by the heart and those led by the mind. This struggle will be felt in our individual lives, as well as nationally and globally.
A year of opposites
No part of the planet will escape the turbulent effect of a year driven by passion and confusion. But, where some parts of the world will see great upheaval, others will see improvement and progress. It will be a year of opposites, with waves of goodwill, promise, peace, and prosperity, as well as rapid downfalls, disasters, storms of human-created misery, war, and famine.
Uprisings across the globe will become more frequent, as social media exposes the differences between political systems, and people recognize the power in numbers. Oppressed groups will push harder for change, equality, and basic human rights. In an age where nothing stays hidden for long, it will become clear who is responsible, and where to push.
As a result, we will almost certainly see several high-profile, powerful leaders or parties tumble, in turn causing major changes in their countries, especially those known for oppression and religious intolerance. Unrest in the Middle East grows and spreads to countries currently relatively quiet.
In the US, turmoil becomes a daily part of life, bringing more frequent protests and clashes. As a result, the US political status quo is likely to be dramatically altered by the time 2018 has ended.
Natural disasters will continue, some caused by climate change (storms and wildfires), but more often by the instability of the Earth itself (volcanic eruptions, earthquakes), and often in areas long considered stable.
Our financial markets experience a major shake-up, but here too, parts of the planet appear almost immune to the troubles caused elsewhere.
Find clarity in simplicity
The chaos and turmoil we experience on the surface is essentially a reflection of a deeper, somewhat hidden struggle.
Over the past few hundred years, our daily lives have become more complex (compared to a few hundred thousand years before that), especially since the birth of the digital age. There is a contradiction in that. As life on the surface becomes increasingly hectic and chaotic, we are drawn (or forced) to seek answers within, for ourselves and our global community. Obviously, this has always been true. What’s different is the grey areas are disappearing. The intense polarization we see happening around us reflects the polarization happening within us, between the heart and the mind.
For example, when you are faced with a refugee family, or someone in great need, your heart will be drawn to let them in, to feed them, to help. Your mind, however, will tell you that there is no room, they are unlike you, it’s not your problem, someone else will help… The heart is subtle, quiet, open — the mind is loud, and quick to react and judge. Knowing which is which can make or break you in 2018.
Our lives are governed by two rulers: Feelings (the realm of the heart) and logic (the mind). Every decision, every action — whether made by an individual, a nation, religion, or political party — is based solely on these two driving forces. There is no third influence, no alternative. Something is either dominated by the heart, the mind, or a combination of the two. Both are necessary.
Here’s the clincher: One without the other causes disharmony. Period. The more disproportionate, the greater the disharmony.
Make the right choice
Today’s toxic and chaotic environment makes it harder to choose, yet easier to know. If it is loud, obnoxious, hurtful to others (anyone, anywhere), or is motivated by fear, greed, distrust, or anger, it is the mind, without the heart, and it is wrong. Always. Without exception.
If it is gentle, warm, loving, helps or heals others (anyone, anywhere), or is motivated by generosity, courage, or empathy, you can be certain it comes from the heart, and it is right.
It’s really all about you
Make no mistake; all this chaos is here for you. The underlying, hidden force causing the shake-up is trying to reach you, to help you choose, or perhaps to force you to choose. But the information chaos will bring doubt and confusion to your mind, so where will you turn to make your choices? What’s left that you can trust?
Here’s a helpful hint. If you are listening to sounds and images playing between your ears, it’s your mind, and you can be sure some of the information stored there is inaccurate. So be careful, because the mind can be an ugly beast.
If you are feeling something near the heart area, if it affects you emotionally, if it reminds you of love and empathy, if it makes you feel powerful and helpless at the same time, if the only confusion you experience is that it seems both sad and beautiful, if you feel a need to share it and treasure it, then you should probably also act on it. Because when your heart speaks, it speaks the truth.
This coming year the numbers 11 and 2 rule. You can be sure the events and the turmoil will touch you deeply — as a witness and perhaps a participant — in a cosmic play of “Can you Tell the Difference?” Play to win this year, and know the difference — the quality of your life depends on it.
2018 month by month
In a year that already has a barrage of information (both false and factual) as its most significant influence, January and October peak in this regard. Long hidden facts come to the surface, secrets are revealed, and high-ranking people are exposed during these months.
February, May, June, and November are particularly vulnerable to natural disasters, as well as upheaval in the financial markets.
April has its focus on everything about labor — expect strikes or other labor-related unrest.
March and December are centered around the abuse of freedom, nationally and internationally, as well as breakthroughs in bringing freedom to places where there was little previously. There will be rapid changes and much unrest.
September and November bring emotions and passion to the surface, causing considerable upheaval globally.
