Libra General horoscope Year
Dear Libra, this is your general horoscope for 2018:
Your relationships have been on a rollercoaster that’s left you frazzled. And that’s saying something since, for you, relationships are like oxygen! Others have been wilful, out of control or downright unpredictable for years but this now begins to fade. The focus moves onto more personal matters, like your family and finances. If you have gone your separate ways you’ll be concerned with establishing a base of your own and disentangling yourself financially. Or, maybe it's time to do right by your family and be more inventive with your investments? Jupiter protects your money in 2018 showing you ways to increase your income, so do! Romantically, you might have a change of heart this summer. If you’re still looking for your other half, you might be drawn to a teacher or mentor.
What 2018 Yearly Horoscope brings to Libra
The Libra 2018 horoscope is a bit of a balance act between work and personal life, as matters around your home and financials continue to preoccupy your thoughts. January and February are relatively easy months, which will allow you to enjoy some socializing and spend time with loved ones. Work matters surface around March, particularly ones that have to do with your daily routine and how it affects other areas of your life. At the same time, romantic prospects flourish as you are ready to commit or get out there and look for your soul mate. If you’ve already found them, there are probably some financial headaches that are keeping you from taking the next step together.
When Uranus moves into Taurus in May, there might be some further turbulence where money is concerned. Things will have improved by autumn, so make sure you keep your spending in check until then. 2018 is a year when you will consider marriage –not just the romantic side of it, but the practical as well. You are likely to set your plans in motion around June and start working towards achieving your goals during the summer. Your ruling planet, Venus, goes retrograde in October for a few weeks and that is the time when the dust will settle. Use this period to reconsider your course of action and make sure you are moving on solid ground in love or work.
With Jupiter having left your sign from the end of 2017, your 2018 horoscope is more about settling into the new situation and seeing things at their true proportions. In fact, this doesn’t only go for things and people around you, but for the way you see and evaluate yourself too. This will be the first step to improving many areas of your life, including your daily routine. Towards the end of the year you’ll have plenty of chance to be the fun, playful “you” again, relieved from the stress of balancing your financials and you work-personal life. 2018 is a year to experiment, organise and regroup, after a 2017 full of ups and downs.
2018 Love and Relationship Predictions for Libra
There are some big shifts on the relationship front in 2018 and all of them for the better. While it was good news for you personally to have Jupiter in Libra from September 2016 to October 2017, this put a lot of pressure on your relationships. Mainly because this put a lot of pressure on Uranus, who is making his first visit to your relationship sector in eight decades. Yet Jupiter’s departure has taken the pressure off your relationships and while there were some sporadic outbursts in the final months of last year, they had become a lot scarcer.
With no more planets in Libra until Venus returns in early August, this creates relationship pressure for the first half of the year. But even then there won’t be a repeat of previous years, for with Uranus leaving your relationship sector on the 16th May and not returning until the 7th November and then only to tie up loose ends, this major relationship journey is coming to an end. Since returning in 2010, Uranus has been on a mission to create something real and authentic, even if that meant going to war against anything that wasn’t in your or your relationships best interest. There is a lot of support for Uranus and your relationships in his final months, starting with Mercury, planet of communication’s return on the 6th March. This should be a 15 day visit aimed at giving your relationships a voice, but instead Mercury will stay on until the 14th May. With Uranus leaving on the 16th May, Mercury will be around in his final two months to ensure the communication lines are open. A retrograde phase from the 23rd March to the 15th April will even provide an opportunity to give your relationships, the past and unsaid words a voice.
With Venus moving through from the 7th March to the 31st March and the Sun from the 21st March to the 20th April, there will be a lot of support during those final months. However, there is a surprise visitor on the 17th April with Chiron, planet of healing making his first visit to your relationship sector in five decades. Chiron is only here until the 26th September, but when he returns in February 2019, he’ll stay on until 2027. In the meantime, there is something special happening on the romantic front this year as well. A solar eclipse on the 18th February and a total solar eclipse on the 28th July is a result of having the element of fate in play all year. While January is an especially romantically charged month, Mars is doing something special this year. The warrior planet of the cosmos will move through from the 16th May to the 13th August, only to return for a double dip visit from the 11th September to the 16th November.
2018 Career Predictions for Libra
You have the best of both worlds on the professional front in 2018, with some real advantages on the work and career fronts but in both cases with little effort required in return. Neptune, who has been in your work sector since 2012, is having a stunning year without doing anything more than he has already been doing. Neptune, planet of dreams and fantasies is charged with fuelling your dreams and daring you to imagine. However, it is more what is happening around Neptune this is set to make this such a good year for work and job matters and especially for following your dreams. The most obvious advantage is that you not only move into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your income sector, but until the 29th January, Mars as well. With Jupiter in your income sector until the 9th November, they will work in tandem all year as the planets of luck and dreams, creating the potential for a stunning year on both fronts.
Another reason why work and job matters are likely to fly this year, is that Chiron will be gone for much of the year. Chiron has been in your work sector since 2010 and as the wounded healer and gatekeeper to old professional demons, this has made it hard to move on. With Chiron gone from the 17th April to the 26th September and then leaving for good next February, this will clear the way for your dreams to fly. Those dreams will have plenty of support when the Sun, Mercury and Venus move through your work sector. This is a relatively short period, starting with Venus’ return on the 11th February and ending with the Sun’s departure on the 21st March. However, that is more than enough time to jumpstart things. Apart from a Full Moon in your career sector on the 2nd January, there is no planetary activity on the career front until Venus returns on the 20th May. This is much earlier in the year than things normally start to move, with the Sun not moving through until the 21st June to the 23rd July, as he does at that time every year.
With Venus here until the 14th June and Mercury from the 13th June to the 29th June, they will each play their part and pass the baton onto the next planet. This is nothing out of the ordinary, but with Neptune in a good place on the work front and Jupiter in your income sector, the whole period from the 20th May to the 23rd July will be an auspicious period for income, work and career matters. This will end with just one sign that something fateful lies ahead. That sign is a solar eclipse on the 13th July. As well as creating the potential for major new beginnings, an eclipse can only fall close to the lunar nodes. This is the first clue that the North Node is drawing close to its return on the 7th November, where it will stay until May 2020. This brings the potential for fateful new beginning during 2019 and 2020, which is even more good news for Neptune on the job front.
2018 Money Predictions for Libra
In any given year there will be parts of the year where there is planetary activity on the income front and other parts of the year when there is planetary activity on the financial front. This is the normal pattern of a normal year, with the focus usually on income matters in October and November and the focus on money matters as a whole, in April and May. That is because that is when the Sun moves through your income and financial sectors and where the Sun goes, Venus and Mercury follow. However, every now and then we have a year where, while the normal patterns still apply, there is something bigger going on and 2018 is one of those years.
To start with this is all about income matters, with lucky Jupiter in your income sector until the 9th November. This makes 2018 one of your most potentially lucrative income years in over a decade and with a lot of support from Neptune on the work front, this has the potential to be very lucrative. Things get off to an empowered start, with Mars also in your income sector until the 27th January. The Sun, Mercury and Venus all moved through late last year, supporting Jupiter in his early months. However, Mars is the planet that can really smash through glass ceilings and give us the confidence to fight for what we deserve. Apart from a Full Moon in your income sector on the 30th April, which could trigger unexpected income developments, Jupiter will largely work in the background. The real push will come when Venus returns to your income sector on the 9th December, exactly two months to the day before Jupiter is due to leave. With Mercury returning on the 10th October and the Sun on the 24th October, there will be plenty of support during Jupiter’s final months.
This will continue, with Venus returning for a double dip visit from the 3rd December to the 8th January. This will squeeze out any remaining income potential, from this extraordinary year. While it won’t be immediately apparent, there are also some exciting developments on the financial front this year. To start with it is business as usual, with no focus on your financial situation and money matters as a whole until Venus returns to your financial sector on the 31st March. With Venus here until the 25th April, the Sun from the 20th April to the 21st May and Mercury from the 14th May to the 30th May, this is when your annual financial update will take place. This is still business as usual, until Uranus returns on the 16th May. This is the first time Uranus or any of the outer planets have visited your financial sector since 1942 and apart from a short break from the 7th November to the 6th March 2019, he’s here until 2027. This is the start of a major new period of financial growth and a journey towards a more authentic approach to money matters.
