The Chinese zodiac signs are determined by the lunar year in which you were born.
The Chinese believe the animal ruling one’s birth year has a profound influence on personality, and destiny.
Unlike Western astrology, it does not look the heavenly constellations or planets to predict one’s destiny. Rather,
Chinese astrology deals with divining sciences of waxing or the five elements (earth, fire, water, metal, wood), Yin and Yang, Chi, and the cycles of time.
What does your 2018 have planned for your Sun sign?
2018 Aries horoscope
In 2018, your indie-spirited sign could trade some of of your signature autonomy for dynamic duos and power couplings. Who are the people that can keep up with you, mind, body and soul? It’s a strategic year when you’ll need to take calculated risks—and also do your fair-share of soul-searching. Feelings you’ve been brushing aside will no longer be ignored. Duck out of the spotlight for some private reckoning with your emotions, even if that means having a couple of “ugly cries.”
2018 Taurus Horoscope
In 2018, two is your magic number—whether for love, work or a stimulating creative project. You’re connecting with vibrant new people, some of them wildly different than you or your usual crowd. For once, those differences feel more magical than threatening. Your existing relationships could also deepen, as you get to know new dimensions of old friends or longtime companions.
2018 Gemini horoscope
Taking care of business! That’s your M.O. during this serious-minded year, which will shine a spotlight on your health, habits and work processes. If you’re a DIY Gemini multitasker, this year will teach you how to delegate to a capable crew. Asking for help is the hardest part; once you see your life running like a well-oiled machine, you’ll wonder what took you so long. Relationships could get super-serious and take you into new levels of trust and togetherness—provided you don’t go running for the hills. You may need to breathe through a few “What have I gotten myself into?” moments, but the Zen transformation will come by sticking out these emotional peaks and valleys.
2018 Cancer horoscope
Relationships are the key theme of 2018 for you, Crab—and that could be music to your nurturing heart. A new era of romance and self-expression has arrived, and you’ll ditch whatever “shyness” you might actually have (a reputation that plenty of Crabs defy). In fact, you could be quite the entertainer during this festive and flamboyant year, which grants you cosmic permission to make fun your top priority. As adults, we forget to play, but that raw and in-the-moment creativity is where true happiness comes from.
Leo 2018 horoscope
Smile for your closeup, perform for your fans—then head for your dressing room, stat! This year is strong in both the public AND the private sectors of your life, bringing a heady mix of influence and introversion. It’s the second full year of a series of Leo eclipses that are radically revamping your identity and personal goals from 2017 until early 2019. No eyesight-protecting paper goggles will be necessary this year, but there ARE two more eclipses in your sign (in January and August) that could catapult you onto a completely new path. Relationships will also undergo seismic changes, and you’ll spend a lot of time figuring out the right new balance of “me” and “we.”
Virgo 2018 horoscope
In 2018, you could be a surprising fixture on the social scene, or just in the mood to pop up on social media and at events to meet and mingle. Friendships will give you life in ‘18, and you might get involved in a community or media project where you can blend your creative talents. Get ready to welcome people from all walks of life into your orbit, and to do some nomadic traveling during the second half of the year. Looking for a new place to call home? Don’t rush into anything until the very end of 2018 (better still, wait for next year)—but DO try an Airbnb in an intriguing city or even another part of your town.
Libra 2018 horoscope
Libra on fire! This year, both your self-worth AND your net worth are on the upswing (and TBH, they’re kind of interconnected). After all, when you truly value yourself, it’s hard to accept less than what you deserve. This boost will begin with your paycheck, but by the second half of the year, it will have a ripple effect through all your relationships. Exploring sex, sensuality and spirituality could become new fascinations for some Libras, as you fearlessly own your desires, from the sacred to the profane.
Scorpio 2018 horoscope
Welcome to the Year of You! With abundant Jupiter in Scorpio for the first time since 2006, you’re kicking off a fresh 12-year cycle of your life. Until November 8, you’ve got a cosmic permission slip to take risks, experiment and discover new passions. Let others take care of their own needs, because you need to fly free. Don’t pigeonhole yourself into anything yet, because one of the (many!) things you dabble in could turn into a lucrative and fulfilling new path next year. For now, cast a wide net. Sign up for classes, take vacations, get a “bridge job” if a 9-to-5 is sucking your soul dry. In the second half of the year, relationships could go through radical changes, or you might start clicking with an avant-garde group of people. Open your eyes (and your heart) to new perspectives, whether you’re single or in a relationships.
Sagittarius 2018 horoscope
You’re a make-it-happen person, but every 12 years, life does something weird: It refuses to cooperate with your enterprising and managerial ways. Your ruling planet Jupiter is in your twelfth house of closure and endings, wrapping up a 12-year life cycle that began back in 2006. In 2018, trying to force things will be a useless battle. You’ll only find yourself swimming upstream! But when you stop resisting the universe’s plans (which, believe it or not, might actually be in your best interest!), things divinely fall into place. Cultivate a practice to help yourself surrender and tune into the divine flow: meditation, music, art, chanting, swimming, charity work, journaling. Heal with a therapist, do some forgiveness work, face old demons. There’s a whole world of support out there once you just. Let. Go.
Capricorn 2018 horoscope
Get ready to rebuild! As your ruling planet, structured Saturn, arrives in Capricorn for the first time since 1991, it’s time to fortify your foundation from the ground up. Outmoded parts of your life and identity will fall away over the next three years, making way for a new and mature Capricorn 2.0 to emerge. This is a time to take inventory: Where in your life are you out of alignment with your values and truth? You might change anything from your appearance to your diet to your friendships this year. Luckily, you’ll be attracting some wise and pioneering new people into your orbit—wayshowers who can introduce you to a new way of seeing life. In the second half of the year, new romantic and creative synergies could spark up, and a July eclipse can bring an out-of-the-blue partnership opportunity, either romantic or professional.
2018 Aquarius horoscope
Every single major part of your life is going through a change this year, so buckle up and enjoy the ride. With expansive Jupiter in your career house until November, your ambitions could take you to far-flung places, perhaps even a new city or an executive suite. This is one of your luckiest career years in over a decade, and with two eclipses in your sign, you could emerge as a surprisingly outspoken and trailblazing figure in your field. Your closest relationships will also undergo some shifts, as the people in your universe adapt to Aquarius 2.0. From May onward, you could get a sudden opportunity to move, buy or sell a home, or expand your family. While part of you is ready to put down roots and settle into a professional groove, fluctuating circumstances could challenge your efforts.
Pisces 2018 horoscope
Free at last! You’ve shaken off the shackles of a heavy couple years, and 2018 could bring blue skies and progress. Your career has been a particular challenge over the past three years, but in 2018, inspiration reboots. Don’t rush into any big commitments (unless you’re so inspired), but take the year to explore, travel, do workshops and indulge in self-discovery. It’s a time to take risks and connect with the wider world. Relationships also become lighter now, and you’ll enjoy people who give you plenty of room to roam free. Absence will definitely make your heart grow fonder—but so will having a fun co-adventurer to join you on the road. A team project or collaboration could get serious, especially if you join forces for a greater cause. Networking can also pay off, so ditch the energy vampires and level up your social circle to include people who are as generous as you are.
