Your Year Ahead


You’re warmly loved, Capricorn and this is never more the case than this year, when love and friendship are revived.  The planets step in and set a more romantic scene at work – although it’s not until March that you get to mix business with pleasure.  Apparently, the old adage about “being in the right place at the right time” rings true.  2018 offers many chances to glimpse through the cosmic peephole. What you see is another path, leading you towards success.


Aries (March 21 – April 20)

Best Day: Tuesday 2nd

For Ariens, life is a great adventure – and it’s excitement of starting something new that draws you on. Structured discipline or routine holds no charm, as you generally prefer to learn through experience.  So if the past few weeks have felt somewhat tethered – this new year, you break free.


Taurus (April 21 – May 20)

Best Day: Thursday 4th

Many Taureans are starting over.  Though flying solo may seem daunting, there’s plenty to look forward to.  For starters, you can kiss others’ hang-ups goodbye and release pent-up desires.  There’s also a cosmic career push.  This new year, explore new avenues and contacts.


Gemini (May 21 to June 21)

Best Day:  Sunday 31st

Apart from the occasional moment of uncertainty, a delightful week awaits.  On the whole, you feel energetic and confident.  Better still, both friendships and finances feature highly; and if you come across as being a tad over exuberant, you’ll be forgiven.  It is the new year, after all.  


Cancer (June 22 – July 22)

Best Day: Wednesday 3rd

Sweet, happy and healthy things should be starting to happen.  If you can’t see signs of this, it may be that you’re still recovering from recent tensions.  The planets now put all their energy into helping you identify and fix any problems.  The eventual outcome:  genuine joy.  


Leo (July 23 – August 23)

Best Day: Friday 5th

The cosmos offers a change of pace.  Restless energy makes you look towards unusual directions for new experiences. Some also receive unexpected visits or calls, or surprise others with good news.  Travel’s possible, along with the opportunity for new study in the new year.  


Virgo (August 24 – September 22)

Best Day:  Sunday 29th

You’ve had some bad luck lately – but life can turn on a sixpence.  For the ever-creative Virgo, this need only be an inspirational idea.  But if you still feel that you’re slowly wading through mud, it’s surprising who you might find there.  Standby to revisit the past.


Libra (September 23 – October 23)

Best Day:  Tuesday 2nd

This week sets a fun-loving stage.  One warning:  respect your physical and financial limits or you could indulge until you don’t feel so well.  Ditto for your bank balance.  The best use of this time is to find pleasure in romance rather than in the material realm.  Sure, you can spend up – just not too much.


Scorpio (October 24 – November 22)

Best Day: Saturday 30th

The planets are well and truly on side right now.  This new year finds you more positive – and whatever the consequences, you’re ready to grab life with renewed enthusiasm.  Financial prospects improve, making a welcome change from recent cash embarrassment.  Spend up while the going’s good.  Enjoy the sales.  


Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)

Best Day: Thursday 4th

It’s a week for sweet-talk, and pleasure.  Extravagance, too.  So if you can afford to, treat yourself to plenty of well-deserved luxuries.  At work, manoeuvre situations to your advantage.  That way you can ensure that you have the first choice of the best options.


Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)

Best Day: Saturday 30th

The week seems keen to introduce someone of a similar heart and mind. It may even be your soul mate that’s so close by.  In money matters, though, you’ve probably less purchasing power than usual.  If debts are already toppling towards humiliation, settle for less spending.


Aquarius (January 21 – February 18)

Best Day: Sunday 29th

Money’s been a touchy issue for a while, and by now you should know that there needs to be a change in your spending patterns.  Saving may still be out of the question, but you can start clearing debts.  The new year looks more financially secure.  As do property investments.  You may consider a change of address.


Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Best Day:  Wednesday 3rd

Others may try to outsmart you, so don’t talk yourself into a corner. Verbal negotiations should be committed to paper. It’s also a week of financial change, as the planets attempt to instil discipline to money matters.  A difficult ask, perhaps – as the new year sales have only just started.
