Overview

The planets truly have your back this year, Virgo. Earth signs like yours are large and in charge starting from New Year's Day. With Saturn, Jupiter and Uranus all moving into positive alignment with your own stars, 2018 should be the year you totally get it together. Yes, you've spent the last five or so years getting adjusted to Neptune's opposition to your sign and it hasn't always been easy. But now that you know the drill, you're learning to navigate the messier bits with aplomb – especially when it comes to your significant relationships. With Saturn in your romance/creativity zone for the next 2.5 years, you'll get super serious about dating, mating and relating – you're prepping to totally master this domain by 2020. This means it's time to get down to business if you're single – start swiping right like a boss. This goes double for ideas and projects – you might feel a bit more challenged creatively, but this is only so that the Cosmic Taskmaster can teach you the next-level lessons you need. Lucky Jupiter will drop some seriously auspicious energy on your communication zone between January and November – helping you get your message out there loud and clear. This should be even more evident in the summer with the Jupiter and Neptune alignment – it's like a major shot of magic for your personal brand and your partnerships. With Uranus moving into Taurus in May, expect big time, out of this world travel opportunities to start coming your way. Staying in one place is not in the cards in 2018 and beyond, Virgo – you're going places you never dared dream about in the past. Have your suitcase and passport ready at all times. Note upcoming retrograde phases: Mercury will be out of phase from 22 March – 15 April, 26 July – 18 August, and 16 November – 6 December. Since this is your ruling planet, you feel its twists and turns more acutely than other signs.

Love & Sex

Your long journey with Neptune continues this year – the planet of illusion and delusion continues to heal you and help you navigate projections on lovers and partners. Practical realities are coming into focus in 2018 however – you're finally getting a sense of who you are and how you fit into your romantic partnerships. With Saturn in your house of dating, you realize how much you matter, Virgo. There may be a sense that things are "dry" in this arena, but that's only to teach you how to step up and take control. Jupiter's presence in your communication zone will help you take command of your feelings and translate them into words. This is particularly powerful in late summer as the planet of luck aligns with Neptune. This could be your most insanely romantic moment of the year, but you'll remain grounded and clear about your needs and boundaries.

Career & Money

Whatever your profession, Jupiter's position in your horoscope will keep you ahead of the game from January through November. Not only is the planet of luck in Scorpio, a very friendly sign, it's also moving through your communication zone. This is ideal for public relations, branding, and writing. It also considerably sharpens your thinking skills, a boon for getting work done. Be prepared to take professional risks starting in June, when a new series of eclipses begin in your collaboration zone – you may work with a whole new group of colleagues during the next few years. With your ruler Mercury going retrograde multiple times this year, just make sure not to launch any major ventures while it's moving backwards (see your overview for exact dates).

Health & Wellness

Neptune and Chiron have impacted your health in recent years via their opposition to your stars. You've been much more susceptible to physical manifestations of emotional manipulation – especially from your romantic partners. You finally start to get a hold on that this year, thanks to multiple planets in earth signs - this will keep you super grounded and strong. After Uranus leaves your transformation zone in May, you'll feel even better, Virgo – and this is when you might want to do a major course correction on your fitness routine. With eclipses in your health zone in February and August, your immunity might be a bit on the low side, so drink fewer cocktails and eat more green veggies – it may sound boring but you'll thank us later.

Social Life

You tend to see the best in people, Virgo – especially when you first meet them. This sweet optimism has been in full force since Neptune moved into your opposite sign in 2011 – and sometimes it's led to a bit of naiveté. That kind of blind trust takes a sharp turn starting in June, as the first in a series of eclipses comes to your house of friends. This is when you start to cut ties with those who've harmed you. With Mars in retrograde in your work zone over the summer, there could be some clashes with colleagues, so try not to be over-reactive and critical. Healing and forgiveness should come by September after the Jupiter-Neptune trine performs its magic, restoring your trust in your mates and your faith in humanity.
