Aries horoscope 2018

21 March - 20 April



Welcome to 2018 – the year of Aries 2.0. You're taking your genius to the next level this year, and finally, at long last – figuring out how to monetize it. During the last seven or so years, rebellious Uranus has been in your own fiery stars (it first went into Aries in 2011). This has kept you constantly exploding with amazing new ideas so often and so swiftly that it's been hard to keep track of them all. With the planet of surprise finally leaving your sign in May, you'll get a moment to breathe and regroup. You're truly ready to step off the merry-go-round of constant cray and turn your most "out there" ideas into practical reality. The eclipses (in late January/February and July/August) will continue to shake up your love and social life – but in a way that brings you closer to your true destiny and your perfect tribe. Under the auspices of the Jupiter-Neptune trine, you're likely to experience major spiritual renewal this summer – bringing your material obsessions (hello pretty sundresses) into alignment with your soul's journey. That's not always an easy alignment, but you're so up for the task and so beyond ready right now, Ms. Ram. Saturn moved into your professional zone in late 2017, and its potent lessons will become clearer as the year presses on. You're becoming your own authority, and no one and nothing can tell you what to do: you are the #girlboss incarnate in 2018. Note that your ruler Mars goes retrograde in your social zone from late June to August – this could be a bit of a drag on your relationships and your overall energy levels. After November you may become so obsessed with world-travel that you won't be able to sit still unless you've got a trip booked – or you're already in a scenic, exotic spot. Say yes to wanderlust, even as you buckle down and rule the world.


Love & Sex

This is one of your sweet spots this year, Aries. After twelve long, sometimes dry years, your libido is raging full force and the stars are offering many pleasures. Think major experimentation and exploration. You can thank Jupiter in Scorpio for this sexy gift – it will keep your bedroom beyond interesting between January and October. This works for Rams in long-term relationships and those of you looking for love via the good old swipe-right. Note that Venus will go retrograde in your sexuality zone from October through mid-November, potentially bringing back past lovers. Dating and relating is rife with change and karma around the eclipses in February and August. Your serious relationships can take a hit this year because you're so obsessed with professional success: make sure you have time for your romantic partnerships too.


Career & Money

Your career is the heartbeat of 2018. This is thanks to Saturn, the Cosmic Taskmaster, who just moved into your professional zone in late 2017. He only visits each sign once every 29.5 years, so depending on your age you've never experienced his journey through this part of your chart – and if this coincides with your Saturn Return (if you were born approximately 30 years ago) it's an even bigger deal. No matter what your age, the next 2.5 years may see a total realignment of your relationship to work. You may even decide to leave your day job and start your own business. Plus, Uranus moves into your money zone in May, making you ripe to make bank on your out-of-this-world entrepreneurial ideas. Bonus: Jupiter in Scorpio can help you clear out outstanding debts, but note that it can make you go a bit wild with your credit card.

Health & Wellness

Watch out for burn out this year, Aries. With Saturn in your career zone and Uranus in your money zone, you might not know when to stop. You'll have to plan rest and retreat in advance instead of waiting until you're too exhausted to even mind the details. Yoga, meditation and the occasional healthy cleanse are on your must-do list all throughout the year. And consider this your warning from the stars: if you don't get eight hours of sleep every night you'll regret it. With Uranus moving through the last degrees of your sign until May, stay hydrated, especially if your birthday is from 14 to 21 April. You are hot-to-trot and might literally break into a sweat without enough water.

Social Life

Your friendships started shifting a bit early in 2017, when a series of eclipses began rocking your social zone. They return this year in late January and August, potentially bringing new collaborators your way. At the same some problematic relationships might need to be deleted – both from your phone and your life at large. Expect a lot of change and potentially some upheaval with both colleagues and mates when your ruler Mars goes retrograde from June to August. Latent anger at an old friend can come up out of nowhere, or you might find yourself in the pathway of someone else's ire with sudden, unexpected force. There's a hidden bonus: an old contact could reemerge and help you meet a few important life-goals.
