The year 2018 is full of changes, Aquarius, and they all make you more influential and important. You may not always take yourself seriously, but please take what you do seriously, and see great progress and success this year.
Your planet Uranus is making a slow transition back and forth from Aries into Taurus in May, then moving retrograde back into Aries in November. The most fundamental changes to your daily life could begin to happen this year.
Saturn, your other planet, is now securely in its home sign of Capricorn. Saturn can provide grounding and stability when Uranus is voting for the experimental and risky option.
The summer Mars retrograde also provides calm should the outside world get beyond complicated.
Venus is retrograde from October until the middle of November. This can cool an overheated love life and give you and your loved ones time to make practical improvements in your relationships.
Fixed sign Aquarius resonates well with the applying Mars-Jupiter conjunction that opens the year. “Passion,” “power,” and “popularity” are keywords for you this year.
Stronger, Smarter, Better, Hotter… your 2018 Horoscope will guide you where you’ve never been!
Aquarius () is the eleventh astrological sign in the Zodiac, originating from the constellation Aquarius.The water carrier represented by the zodiacal constellation Aquarius is Ganymede, a beautiful Phrygian youth. Ganymede was the son of Tros, king of Troy (according to Lucian, he was also the son of Dardanus). While tending to his father’s flocks on Mount Ida, Ganymede was spotted by Jupiter. The king of gods became enamored of the boy and flew down to the mountain in the form of a large bird, whisking Ganymede away to the heavens. Ever since, the boy has served as cupbearer to the gods. Ovid has Orpheus sing the tale:”The king of the gods was once fired with love for Phrygian Ganymede, and when that happened Jupiter found another shape preferable to his own. Wishing to turn himself into a bird, he none the less scorned to change into any save that which can carry his thunderbolts. Then without delay, beating the air on borrowed pinions, he snatched away the shepherd of Ilium, who even now mixes the winecups, and supplies Jove with nectar, to the annoyance of Juno” (Metamorphoses X 154-160).Aquarius is a summer constellation in the northern hemisphere, found near Pisces and Cetus. It is especially notable as the radiant for four meteor showers, the largest of which is the Delta Aquarid meteor shower in late July and early August.Under the tropical zodiac, the sun is in Aquarius typically between January 20 and February 18, while under the Sidereal Zodiac, the sun is in Aquarius from approximately February 15 to March 14, depending on leap year.
