Your love life will take some unusual twists and turns in 2018. After May 16th, you’ll find your tastes change dramatically. Instead of gravitating towards your usual type, you’ll fall head over heels in love with an offbeat rebel. The object of your affection may not have a regular job or lead an orthodox or conformist lifestyle. Don’t worry too much what others will think of this relationship. When it comes to love, you should follow your heart. If you want to get engaged or married, you may feel that the time is right to take the plunge near July 13th, due to a Solar Eclipse. Are you in a serious relationship? Your amour will encourage you to take up a hobby. Having a creative pursuit unrelated to work will make you a better partner. Instead of spending all your time at the office, you’ll make a greater effort to be home, working on an art project and enjoying romantic outings with your partner. This playful interlude will last through early November. Move your focus from the professional to the personal.
Your social life continues to bring lots of pleasure this year. Between January 1st and November 8th, you’ll be busy doing the rounds of parties and casual get togethers and of course you’ll be carrying a supply of business cards at all times. You’re sure to meet some influential people at these gatherings. Whether you’re looking for love, work or a plumber is immaterial. You will bump into the right people at the right time during the first ten months of the year. Once November 9th arrives, you’ll be ready to take a break from all this social activity. Devoting more time to solitary pursuits will fill you with a quiet pleasure. You’ll become indifferent to worldly pursuits like professional success, social status and material wealth. Instead, you’ll cultivate contentment from simple activities like spending time with pets, developing creative projects and reading books. Adopting a lower profile will help you recharge your batteries and regain your strength. You’ll grow to enjoy your scaled-back schedule so much that you’ll break a destructive habit of working around the clock.
An income stream will come to an abrupt end around the end of January, due to a stressful Lunar Eclipse. Don’t panic. An exciting moneymaking opportunity will come along shortly after this financial hiccup. Keep your eyes open for work in the days surrounding February 15th, when new career options will become available. A new role will give you a fresh lease on life, allowing you to develop innovative ideas that have tremendous social benefits. Don’t be surprised if you’re given a pay rise towards the end of July, when another Lunar Eclipse causes your employer to realise you are worth your weight in gold. There’s a good chance you’ll be assuming more responsibility at work, but you will be properly paid for these duties. Instead of increasing your standard of living, put your extra income into savings. Opening a retirement fund in August would be a good thought, when a Solar Eclipse will pave the way for long term financial security. A profitable career opportunity will arrive on December 21st, drawing on your creative talent.
Leading a more disciplined life will help you reach heights you never thought possible in 2018. Working hard puts your professional star in the ascendant. Don’t be surprised if you’re offered an upscale position with more responsibility. Influential friends will make sure you get the career opportunities you deserve. Don’t hesitate to ask them for references. The secret to your success is your personal idealism. Instead of telling everybody why proposals will go wrong, find ways to turn brilliant ideas into functioning systems. A business or romantic alliance will reach an important turning point on July 13th, when a Solar Eclipse prompts you to relinquish an element of control to your partner. Working with someone you trust will come as a relief. Although you’re capable of working long and hard, you can’t do everything by yourself. Rely on others to handle everyday operations and sensitive communications while you focus on the big picture. The final two months of the year could require you to relocate. Your partner will find the perfect new home for you.
