Aries Forecast for 2018: Love & Romance
There are two main features to 2018 when it comes to your love life and matters of the heart. One is what ‘is’ happening and the other is what ‘isn’t’ happening. What you leave behind in 2018 are the relationship challenges of the past few years, along with the heavy focus on your relationships. It is not just the 13 months that Jupiter spent in your relationship sector, from September 2016 to October 2017 that put so much focus on your relationships and it wasn’t the reason for the challenges. It was that this came during a period of finding your personal truth that created the tension. Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos only left your relationship sector in the final weeks of 2017, with 2018 having a very different feel from the get go.
January 2018 is the first month since July 2016, where there have been no planets on the relationship front. It is not until a Full Moon in your relationship sector on the 1st April that there will be any real input from the relationship gods. Yet having spent nearly 18 months getting to the heart of what you want from your relationships and what they need from you, you start the year at an empowered point. The next time that the focus turns to your relationships will be Venus’ return on the 7th August, when she starts something rather special. Not content to visit once, Venus will leave on 9th September, only to return for a double dip visit from the 1st November to the 3rd December. This will build on all that you have worked towards in 2016 and 2017. Whether single, in a relationship or between relationships at the start of the year, the final five months of 2018 create the potential for something special. In the meantime, while relationship matters take a back seat, what does define 2018 are the stunning conditions in play on the romantic front. You start the year with a romantic wave already in play, with a total lunar eclipse on the 1st February creating the potential for something fateful. With Ceres, queen of nurturing in your romantic sector until the 28th June and Venus, the planet of love returning on the 14th June to take over, there will be a love god on the field right through to early September. With another solar eclipse on the 11th August, the element of fate runs throughout the year. Right through to the North Node’s departure on the 7th November.
