Why hello there 2018! Last year was rife with so many ups and downs it was hard to know how you felt from one day to the next. You were right in the crosshairs of ongoing eclipses in your sign – and as you know from how your life changed last August, eclipses are POTENT. The good news is that you're almost done, but there are few more of these doozies in the coming year – the first at the end of January and the second in August. No need to worry, though – they're not nearly as world-rocking as last years – and you're getting used to this unusual astro-rhythm anyway. You finally realize that the karma you're facing is the kind that pushes your life forward on the path it's always meant to be on. Uranus has been in your sister fire-sign since 2011, and it's been a bit like having your finger stuck in an electric socket that whole time – you've been on a constant quest for adventure. This year, starting in May, you begin to settle a bit as Uranus moves into Taurus. For the next few years your rebellions are likely to take place on the professional front. You're willing to take major career risks because you're just too creative not to do so. There's some extra pleasure built into the year thanks to Mars (the planet of desire) as he will hover in your relationship zone from June to September, with a retrograde right in the middle. Ex-lovers are likelier to like your Insta posts now more than any other time this year. If you're in a relationship, you might be a bit testy and aggressive during this phase, so prepare accordingly. With Saturn in your job zone all year, you're a bit of a workaholic – you must make time for relaxation and play or you'll quickly burn out. The beauty is that coming home will be more delicious than ever thanks to lucky Jupiter's presence in your domestic zone through the fall – your lounge is your 2018 sanctuary.
Love & Sex
Even though a few major planets are changing places this year, Neptune will remain in your sex zone, bringing magic and mysticism into your bedroom. This may have induced you into falling into long, unrequited crushes in the last few years. In 2018 you finally get the hang of falling only for those that fall for you – and those that are in the right place at the right time. Your long-term relationships get a major boost when Mars moves into your partnership zone in May. This is extra potent because the planet of lust will remain in this part of your chart for far longer than usual thanks to a mid-summer retrograde. Between spring and early fall, expect excitement in existing relationships and the potential for new love to bloom suddenly – and potentially at first sight.
Career & Money
Your career explodes this year, Leo. If you've been doing the relatively safe projects at work, expect to want something much more meaningful by May. As Uranus (the planet of instant change and rebellion) moves into your professional zone, you'll suddenly understand that you want to be KNOWN for something. That name in lights moment is coming for you in the next few years – this is when you figure out exactly how you want to look while you walk the proverbial red carpet. You are made of pure innovation this year, and might find new sources of income in July, near the eclipse in your money zone. Saturn moved into your work zone at the end of 2017 and it's already teaching you profound lessons about hard work – you're ready to build something huge and lasting.
Health & Wellness
The Cosmic Taskmaster moved into your health zone late last year, and will remain in this part of your chart for 2.5 years. If you've slacked off of your workout regimen, this phase should snap you back to seriousness. This is one of those years when GET TO THE GYM will be at the top of your New Year's resolutions, except this time you'll have the wherewithal to follow through all year long. This also goes for booking your annual physical or seeing your holistic physician – you're on top of it all in 2018. Watch out for a tendency to burn the candle at both ends – it's more essential than ever to come up for air at the end of a long workday. Stress from your daily grind can immediately impact your wellness.
Work can easily sidetrack you in 2018, so you must actively avoid letting this get in the way of your friendships. And with Jupiter in your home zone until November, it may be hard to get you out of the house once you settle in. This is lovely for dinner parties and inviting your bestie over to watch movies, but it's not so great for expanding your real life social network – so put the extra effort in. On the other hand, getting more likes and followers should be a cinch – your Insta presence is likely to grow, especially in the late spring.
