Major Trends for Libra in 2018 year
There’s good news and bad news in the year ahead. First, the good news. After seven years of stressful alignment with you, Uranus is beginning to move away. Instead of being in continuous stressful alignment, he will only be in stressful alignment for approximately half the time. Those of you born early in the sign of Libra (from September 23 to October 2) will hardly even feel Uranus’s influence. This move is not only positive healthwise, but it will start to stabilize the love and social life. More on this later.
Jupiter spends most of the year in your money house. Thus the year ahead is going to be very prosperous. More good news.
On November 8 Jupiter will move into your 3rd house of communication and intellectual interests. This is an excellent transit for students not yet at college, for teachers, writers, lecturers, journalists, sales and marketing people. It brings enhanced skills. Students should be successful in their studies.
Neptune has been in your 6th house of health for many years now and will be there for many more to come. This signals the importance of the feet and also the importance of spiritual healing. More on this later.
Now, the bad news (although it’s not really bad, just challenging). Saturn, since late December of last year, is now in stressful alignment with you.
Uranus is leaving his stressful aspect, but Saturn is replacing him. So your health will still need watching in the year ahead. More on this later.
Saturn’s move into your 4th house will impact on the family. Most likely you will have extra family responsibilities to deal with. Emotionally, you will not feel able to express how you’re really feeling. This can lead to repression and perhaps depression. There are many things you can do about this, however – more details later.
There will be three Solar Eclipses this year – usually there are only two.
Since the Sun rules your 11th house of friends, this indicates turbulence (lifechanging kinds of dramas) in the lives of your friends. Computers and other bits of technology might need replacing in the year ahead. We will discuss this more fully in the monthly reports.
Your most important interests this year are finance (until November 8); communication and intellectual interests (from November 8 onwards); home and family; health and work; love and romance (until May 16 and from November 6 onwards); and sex, occult studies and personal transformation (from May 16 to November 6).
Your paths of greatest fulfilment this year are finance (until November 8); communication and intellectual interests (from November 8 onwards); friends, groups and group activities (until November 17); and career (from November 17 onwards).
Libra Horoscope for 2018 Health
(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both of these perspectives were identical. Now there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)
Health, as we mentioned, still needs attention this year. Uranus is leaving a stressful aspect for a while, but Saturn replaces him. Indeed, there will be periods in the year (from January 1 to May 16 and from November 6 onwards) where both Saturn and Uranus are in stressful aspect. Moreover, Pluto has been in stressful aspect with you since 2008 and this is still the situation this year. So there are two (and at times three) long-term planets in stressful alignment with you. Overall energy could be a lot better. You will have to try to make sure you maintain high energy levels. This is the first defence against disease. In many cases a good night’s sleep – or an afternoon nap – will do more for you than a visit to the doctor’s.
The good news is that your 6th house of health is strong this year. This shows focus. You’re on the case. You’re not going to let little things mushroom into big things. The danger would be if you were not paying attention.
Also, as our regular readers know, there is much you can do to enhance the health and prevent problems from developing. Give more attention to the following – the vulnerable areas of your chart (the reflex points are shown below):
The heart. This has only become an important area for you, Libra, since 2008 (and even more important since 2011). Learn to replace worry and anxiety with faith.
The kidneys and hips. These are always important for Libra. Regular hip massage (and the buttocks too) should be part of your health regime. This will not only strengthen the kidneys but the lower back as well. A herbal kidney cleanse every now and then – especially if you feel under the weather – would be helpful.
The feet are another always important area, as Neptune, the planet that rules the feet, is your health planet. They have become even more important since 2012 as Neptune moved into his own sign and into your 6th house. Regular foot massage (see the chart above) should be part of your health regime. Shoes should fit correctly and not unbalance you.
Comfort is preferable to fashion, although if you can have both, all the better. There are all kinds of inexpensive gadgets that give foot massage.
There are some that even give foot whirlpool treatments. This would be a good investment.
Neptune is the most spiritual of all the planets. These days he is even more so than usual. Thus, you respond well to spiritual-type therapies – meditation, prayer, laying on of hands, reiki and the manipulation of subtle energies. If you feel under the weather, see a spiritual healer.
Neptune rules the oceans and he resides these days in a water sign. Thus you have a special connection to the healing power of the water element. You will find it very beneficial – from the health perspective – to spend more time around water: oceans, rivers and lakes. Swimming, boating, water skiing and water sports are healthy kinds of exercises. If you feel under the weather, soak in the tub for an hour or so and you will feel much better.
Libra Horoscope for 2018 Home and Family
The home and your family have been a very important area for you for many years – ever since Pluto moved into your 4th house in 2008. This year it becomes even more important. Pluto is still there and Saturn joins him. Your 4th house is easily the strongest house (overall) in the Horoscope – it is also the most challenging.
Pluto in your 4th house for so long has brought deaths in the family. In some cases these were ‘figurative’ deaths – the family circle broke up or shifted – in some cases it was ‘literal’ death, with the actual death of family members. In many cases family members experienced surgery or near-death kinds of experiences. A cosmic detox has been going on in the family and domestic life and these happenings are some of the side-effects. Believe it or not, you are giving birth to your ideal of family life, the Divine Idea of how your family and home should be. The birthing process is seldom easy – generally there’s a lot of blood and gore – but the end result is good.
Pluto in your 4th house has also brought major repairs or renovations in the physical home, and more could happen this year too.
Saturn in your 4th house shows a rearrangement of the home and family life. It is getting restructured in a healthier kind of way. This aspect does not favour a move, but a need to make better use of the space that you have. If you feel cramped in your present home – and many of you do – the solution is to rearrange things in a different way. If you do, you will find that you have all the space that you need. A move is more likely next year (though it doesn’t seem like a smooth ride) than this year.
Saturn in your 4th house shows that you are taking on more responsibilities at home and with the family. This applies to you and also to a parent or parent figure. He or she seems unduly pessimistic – everything looks black – and this impacts on the family.
There will be a tendency to manage the home and family like a business, in a corporate kind of way. While this will bring efficiency and order (and a little of this is good), it can also put a chill on the family life. Family is about unconditional love and support. The family relationship transcends business.
Pluto is your financial planet. His position in the 4th house shows that you’re spending more on the home and family, investing here. It shows earning money through the family and family connections, and good family financial support.
Your financial planet in the 4th house favours making money from home – from a home office or home-based business. Your home is as much an office as it is a home. You can be buying business equipment for the home this year.
Repairs and renovations can happen any time this year (the plumbing especially should be checked), but if you have some free will in the matter, the period from March 17 to May 16 seems best. If you’re redecorating or beautifying the home in a cosmetic way, January 1–20 is good.
Siblings and sibling figures in your life are likely to move this year – the opportunity is there. A parent or parent figure has probably moved multiple times in recent years and it could happen this year too. But he or she is getting ready to settle down more. The wanderlust is about over.
Libra Horoscope for 2018 Finance and Career
Last year, as Jupiter was in your own sign, was a strong financial year. This year will be even better as Jupiter, as we mentioned, spends most of the year – until early November – in your money house. This is a classic astrological signal of prosperity and good fortune. It shows expanded earnings. It shows that assets you already own are increased in value. Those of you who have stock portfolios will find that they are worth more. Since Jupiter rules your 3rd house of communication and intellectual interests, your intellectual property (your ideas, writings, speeches, lectures, etc.) will be worth more.
Jupiter not only increases physical earnings but brings happy financial opportunities as well. For investors, this position favours telecommunications, transportation and media companies. For-profit educational institutions are also favoured. Buying, selling, trading and retailing are favoured as well, and these activities are good for non-investors as well.
There are other things Jupiter brings to the table. There is great financial faith and optimism. There was a book written many years ago entitled Your Faith Is Your Fortune, and this is certainly the case for you this year. You will have inspired financial ideas and a wonderful intuition this year (Neptune is making beautiful aspects to Jupiter for most of the year). Very often it is not money that we need, but an idea – a solution. And these you will have in abundance.
Pluto, your financial planet, has been in your 4th house of home and family for many years, and we have discussed some of this earlier. Thus you have a good feeling for residential real estate, the food business, hotels and motels, restaurants and industries that cater to the home. It is an aspect that favours a family kind of business. This could be your family business or a business that is run like a family, with a family kind of atmosphere to it. It shows, as we mentioned, earning from home, from a home office or a home-based business.
You’re spending more on the home and family as well.
This is a strong financial year, but not an especially strong career year.
Career just doesn’t seem that important. Wealth is more important than status, prestige or professional recognition. Some years are like that. The cosmos always aims for a balanced development and, over the course of a life, different areas will be emphasized over others.
There are two Lunar Eclipses this year (the normal number) and these always bring career change and ‘course corrections’. There will also be a Solar Eclipse in your 10th career house on July 13 that brings more of the same. We will discuss this in the monthly reports.
Your career planet is the Moon – the fastest moving of all the planets. Where the other fast-moving planets (the Sun, Mercury and Venus) need a year to move through all your signs and houses, the Moon will do this every month.
Thus there are many short-term career trends depending on where the Moon is and the aspects she receives. We will deal with these in the monthly reports.
Libra Horoscope for 2018 Love and Social Life
Uranus, the planet of sudden change – revolutionary change – has been in your 7th house of love for the past seven years. This has tested marriages and serious relationships. Many a Libra has divorced over these past years. Many have broken off serious relationships. For singles this position was not favourable to marriage. Happily this is changing now. Uranus is leaving your 7th house from May 16 to November 6: next year he will move out for the long haul.
Although Uranus is still a factor for approximately half the year, he has more or less done his job now, and the love and social life is becoming more settled. Serious committed relationships have a better chance of survival now.
I don’t think you will marry this year – next year would be much better for that – but there will be more stability in love. For the past seven years you have been attracting ‘non-serous’ kinds of people. Rebel types. Many were geniuses to be sure, but not people interested in commitment. They all seem to have a desire (more like a lust) for personal freedom. Over this long period your whole social circle has changed, probably out of all recognition. By now you have become more or less comfortable with sudden social changes and the insecurities they bring. This was Uranus’s whole purpose.
Love will not be as exciting as it has been over these last seven years, but it will be more stable and settled.
As we mentioned, marriage is not likely this year, but singles will still date and have fun. Mars, your love planet, will spend a lot of time – an unusual amount of time – in Aquarius, your 5th house of fun and creativity, this year.
On and off, he will be there for approximately five months. This shows a love affair rather than a marriage – and a very complicated one.
Those working in or working on the second marriage have a status quo kind of year. Those of you who are marrieds will tend to stay married, and singles will tend to stay single. Those in or working on the third marriage will have their relationships tested. Three Solar Eclipses will see to that. If the marriage or relationship is basically sound, it will survive. Those working on the fourth marriage shouldn’t marry just yet.
Your love planet, Mars, will go retrograde this year – this tends to happen once every two years and will be from June 26 to August 27. This is not a time to make important love decisions one way or another. It is a time to gain clarity.
There seems to be much turmoil and upheaval in your friendships this year as well. Four out of the five eclipses this year impact on them. Thus friends are experiencing life-changing kinds of events and this could affect your relationship.
Libra Horoscope for 2018 Self-Improvement
Uranus’s move into your 8th house of regeneration shows you’re entering an era of sexual experimentation. This is neither good nor bad; it all depends on how you handle it. On the one hand, all the old rule books about sex – the dos and don’ts – get thrown out the window and you learn about what works for you through trial, error and experimentation. Since, as our regular readers know, every person is ‘wired up’ in a unique way, you can’t really make universal rules about this. You learn how you personally function and what works for you. On the other hand, sometimes these experiments can go too far – they can actually be destructive. This should be avoided.
Many of you are involved in personal transformation. It is very trendy these days. You will be more experimental here too.
Saturn will be in your 4th house all year. We have discussed the physical kinds of effects this will have, but this position has a great impact on your emotional life too – on your everyday moods and feelings. Your 4th house is not just about where you live physically, but where you live emotionally. So, a reorganization of the emotional life is happening. You’re going to learn to manage your moods the way you manage your physical circumstances. It was never intended that people be ‘victims’ of mood or emotion. Mood and emotion are intended to serve us.
In this process of managing emotion – and the cosmos will arrange things so that it becomes necessary – mistakes are often made. Self-control, to many, means repression – the stifling of true feelings. (Often this is because you feel unsafe in expressing them.) This can’t go on for very long. It is like trying to stifle a yawn. You can do it for a time, but sooner or later, it is going to happen and it will be much stronger than it would have been. Not only that, but holding back your feelings can cause many other problems – depression and even physical illness.
What is needed is a safe, healthy way of expressing negative feeling. Some might find that talking to a trained therapist will be helpful. Some might take refuge in medication (which doesn’t cure anything but is merely a scientific form of repression). Talking things out with a good friend would be another option, or writing down your negative feelings on paper. In my book A Technique for Meditation we give other ways of getting rid of unwanted feelings (see Chapters 2 and 3).
Spiritual healing has been strong in your chart for many years. So, it has been a great interest. You’re going deeper and deeper into it. You already understand much but there’s always more to learn.
The important thing in spiritual healing is to acknowledge no other healing force but the Divine. This doesn’t mean that a doctor or therapist can’t be a help; it means that you seek your healing from the Divine first. The Divine can heal directly or through therapists or doctors. The important thing is to stay open to the moment-by-moment intuition.

You begin your year with the Western, social sector of your chart dominant.
This is your favourite sector. While others are not so comfortable focusing on relationships and the interests of others, you excel at this. No need to give you lectures on consensus and gaining your ends through cooperation – you know all about this and can teach the rest of us.
Though your yearly financial peak will happen later on in the year, this is a good financial month. Jupiter will be in your money house until November 8, and Mars, your love planet, is in the money house until the 27th of this month.
Thus there is great focus here, which is 90 per cent of success. Mars in the money house shows the cooperation of friends and social contacts in the financial life, and the support of the spouse, partner or current love. Often with this kind of aspect there are opportunities for business partnerships or joint ventures.
This month you have the chart of a person who likes to do business with friends, with the people you socialize with. You like to socialize – to befriend – the people you do business with as well. A lot of the social activity this month is business related.
For singles this shows an allurement to wealth. Wealth, material gifts and financial support are all romantic turn-ons these days. Romantic opportunities happen as you go about pursuing your financial goals or with people involved in your finances. The ruler of your Horoscope, Venus, will travel with your financial planet from the 8th to the 10th. This shows a nice payday and financial opportunity happening. (The Sun will also be travelling with Pluto in that period, reinforcing what we say here.)
Health needs some attention this month – especially until the 20th. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
A Lunar Eclipse on the 31st occurs in your 11th house of friends and tests these things. Often it brings dramas in the lives of friends which complicate your relationship. High-tech gadgets will get tested as well. Don’t panic if your computer or smart phone starts acting erratically. Career changes are also happening. A parent or parent figure has to make important financial changes.

When the Sun entered your 5th house of creativity and fun on January 20
(Venus having entered there on January 18) you began one of your yearly personal pleasure peaks. A fun kind of month ahead. A Solar Eclipse on the 15th also occurs in your 5th house, however, so have fun, but safely. When people are scheduling leisure activities there’s a tendency to travel. But this eclipse impacts on the two planets that rule travel – Mercury and Jupiter. So try to avoid travelling during this eclipse period. It will be a good idea to stay off the roads too – unless absolutely necessary. If it is necessary, drive more carefully.
The Solar Eclipse of the 15th affects children and children figures in your life. They should take it easy over this period – there is no need for stressful or daredevil-type activities. A parent or parent figure is forced to make important financial changes. Siblings and sibling figures should also drive more carefully. Children and children figures are forced to redefine themselves now, forced to create a new and better image of themselves over the next six months.
They will dress differently, change hairstyles and, in general, present a new
look to the world. If they haven’t been careful in dietary matters a physical detox could happen. Friendships get tested too. (The eclipsed planet, the Sun, rules your 11th house of friends.) Technological equipment and gadgetry also get tested and often need repair or replacement.
Basically though, this eclipse is benign for you (especially when you compare them to others you’ve had to deal with in the past). It is just inconvenient.
Health and energy are good this month. With three long-term planets in stressful alignment with you all year, you always need to watch your health, but this is one of your better periods. If you feel under the weather, enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
Your love planet, Mars, spends the month in your 3rd house. Thus love is close to home – in your own neighbourhood. Your neighbourhood, such as it is, has more glamour and romance in it than the finest resorts of the world.
Love opportunities for singles happen at educational functions – at school or school functions, at lectures and seminars – perhaps even at the library or bookshop. The gift of the gab attracts you these days. Good intellectual compatibility, good exchanges of ideas, are romantic turn-ons.

Best Days for Career: 6, 7, 16, 17, 24, 25, 26
Mars’s move into your 4th house on the 17th has multiple meanings for you. It impacts on health in a stressful way. After the 20th there are many planets (70 per cent) in stressful alignment with you, so take it nice and easy from that date onwards. The important thing, as always, is to get enough rest. Energy deficiency is the primal disease. It leaves you open to all kinds of things. Let go of trivialities and focus only on the essential. Do your best every day and refuse to worry – worry might not take you to hell itself, but it will take you to the gates of hell. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
It will be a good idea to schedule more massages into your week or time at a health spa.
Mars in your 4th house is excellent for doing repairs, renovations or beautification projects in the home. It indicates more entertaining from home and more socializing with the family and extended family. It also shows a shift in the love attitudes. Until the 17th love can be found in the neighbourhood and perhaps with neighbours. After the 17th the home and family itself are the centre for love. Romantic opportunities come from the family or through family connections. The gift of the gab is less important to you, and now you crave emotional intimacy. You like people with whom you can share feelings.
There is a tendency to be more nostalgic in love too – a tendency to want to relive the past, to revive past high points. This, of course, is impossible. You might be missing the splendours of the present – of the new and better experiences that await. Often with this aspect you meet up with an old flame from the past (or someone who reminds you of him or her, someone with similar mannerisms or personality). Usually this is not serious but it does have a therapeutic value. You get to resolve old issues.
On the 20th, as the Sun enters your 7th house, you begin a yearly love and social peak. The social life becomes hyperactive. Singles have many opportunities for romance this period. But keep in mind that Uranus in your 7th house is not so great for marriage. Venus will travel with Uranus on the 28th and 29th and your need for freedom increases. The current love can see you as too rebellious.
Finances are better before the 20th than after. After the 20th you have to work harder for earnings than usual.

Health is improving but still needs keeping an eye on. Review our discussion of this last month. Continue to enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. Soaking in a tub when you feel stressed will relax the body and rejuvenate you too. Water-based therapies are good. Health will improve further after the 20th. The worst will be over with.
Mars, your love planet, spends the month in your 4th house. Review our discussion of this last month.
You’re still very much in a yearly love and social peak until the 20th, so there is more going out, more parties, more dating. However, with Uranus in your 7th house all of this seems unstable. It is fun, but not likely to be serious.
You’re still in a very prosperous year, but finances are a bit slower than usual. Pluto, your financial planet, will begin to go backwards on the 22nd and Jupiter, the occupant of your money house, went retrograde on March 9. This is not the end of the world, but it shows a need for more caution and for a review of finances. Important financial decisions are better made before the 22nd than afterwards. Since these retrogrades will go on for many months, be more careful about the little details of finance. Read the fine print of contracts, credit-card offers and insurance quotes. Make sure cheques are signed and dated correctly. Make sure you address your envelopes correctly. If you’re mailing an important document, it might be a good idea to send it special delivery. The point here is not to make things slower than they need to be. Keep copies of all receipts. Be as perfect as possible in your financial dealings.
Delays and glitches will probably still occur, but not as often as they could.
The most important thing over the next few months is to gain clarity on your financial picture and strategy. It’s a time for study and due diligence.
Your 8th house of regeneration is powerful all month, but especially after the 20th. Venus is in the 8th house until the 24th. Thus there is more sex appeal to the image. It just ‘shines out’ naturally. In general there is more libido than usual too. Very good for weight-loss and detox regimes.

If you got through the past two months with health and sanity intact, you’re done a great job! Congratulations! The month ahead is infinitely easier than the past two. Mars and Uranus leave their stressful aspects with you on the 16th.
Vitality soars (especially compared with the past two months).
The planetary power is now on the day side (upper half) of your Horoscope.
This began on March 20 and is in full swing now. Home and family are still very important – an important focus – but now you can shift attention to the career and outer objectives. To really serve your family you need to be successful in your career. You can miss out on a school play or soccer game, but you don’t want to miss out on an important deal. You seem successful this month – and you haven’t even hit your peak yet. Venus, the ruler of your Horoscope, crosses the Mid-heaven and enters your 10th house of career on the19th (the Moon, your career planet, is also in your 10th house on the 19th).
This shows personal success and recognition. It shows elevation. People look up to you. You’re above everyone in your world. Physical appearance and overall demeanour play an important role in the career. You need to spend on your image, but don’t overspend. There is special success on the 31st.
With your 8th house strong until the 21st it’s a good time for ‘resurrection’ activities. There are areas in your life – perhaps a business, a friendship or project – that seem dead. Now is the time to bring them back to life.
Resurrection seems like a miraculous thing, but it is very normal in nature.
You can more easily tap into this power now.
This is also a good time for detox and weight-loss regimes. Rid the body (and the emotional life) of what doesn’t belong there. You will feel much better.
Uranus’s move into your 8th house this month on the 16th shows an experimental attitude to sex and sexual expression. You seem ready to try anything – ready to throw out all the dos and don’ts. This is fine so long as the experiments are not destructive. This also shows that the spouse, partner or current love is entering a period of financial experimentation. He or she is throwing out all the rule books and learning what works financially through trial, error and experiment. Much new knowledge will happen this way.

A very hectic, but successful month. Health needs watching from the 21st onwards. The good news is that health won’t be as challenging as March and April were. (If you got through those months, you’ll get through the month ahead.) Still, make sure to get enough rest. Take breaks from work and recharge your batteries. Don’t allow yourself to get over tired. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. Water-based therapies are still powerful.
Your love planet has been in your 5th house since May 16 and will be here for the whole of the coming month. This shows another shift in love and love attitudes. Love should be fun and you’re attracted to the people you can have fun with, the ones who can show you a good time, the ones who laugh and have a carefree attitude. This is all well and good, but this aspect doesn’t favour serious romance. (Even though, with Uranus out of your 7th house, serious romance is on the table now.) Mars in the 5th house wants love to be a constant honeymoon. It is not ready to deal with the tough times that inevitably happen even in the best of relationships. But this is how you feel now and these are the kinds of people you’re attracting.
Venus has been the ‘morning star’ in your career. On May 19 she announced the rising sun in your career, and now, on the 21st, he appears and you enter a yearly career peak. You have a lot of help from your friends. Networking helps and your technological expertise is important. Your willingness to travel also seems important.
Though the career is going very well, finances are shakier this month, from the 21st onwards. Pluto your financial planet is not only retrograde, but receiving stressful aspects. So you need to work harder to achieve your financial goals. Also, this shows that the career success you seek entails some kind of financial sacrifice. You have to be willing to make it. (This sacrifice seems short term though.)
Your challenge this month – and it won’t be easy – is combining a successful career with a successful home and family life. The demands of both are very strong on you. It will be difficult to please everybody, but somehow you’ll manage.

The month ahead is basically happy, but two eclipses will shake the world around you. They will keep you on your toes as well. Don’t be lulled by the apparent harmony. Be happy, but also be vigilant.
The Solar Eclipse of the 13th occurs in your 10th house of career, bringing career changes. There are shakeups in your company or industry. There are dramas in the lives of bosses, parents or parent figures. The rules of the game are changing and you’re forced to make course corrections in your career.
Every Solar Eclipse will test friendships. Sometimes it’s the relationship that’s the problem. If there are flaws, this is when you learn of them. But often it is not the relationship itself, but the dramas (often life-changing dramas) that happen in the lives of friends that prove testing. As with every Solar Eclipse, your high-tech equipment will get tested. Computers tend to be temperamental, and in many cases you’ll find they need repair or replacement. Parents or parent figures in your life are not only having personal crises, but financial ones as well. Important changes have to happen. Your finances also seem affected as this eclipse impacts on your financial planet, Pluto. My feeling is that you have underestimated yourself. Your financial prospects are better than you have planned for and now you have to make adjustments to your thinking.
The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th occurs in your 5th house of creativity and children, and impacts on the children in your life. Once again they need to redefine themselves and create a new image and look for the world. They can have job changes as well. This eclipse also impacts on your career, industry and company – more dramas are happening there. Parents, parent figures and bosses are once again affected. They, too, have to re-imagine themselves over the next six months. Again a parent or parent figure is forced to make important financial changes. Their thinking hasn’t been realistic. This eclipse is more powerful than it appears on the surface. It impacts on two other planets – Mars and Uranus. Thus a current relationship gets tested. Long-repressed grievances come up for resolution. The impact on Uranus shows that high-tech gadgetry will again be tested. Take all necessary safeguards for your files and photos.

Another Solar Eclipse on the 11th (the third Solar Eclipse of the year) will once again test friendships and your high-tech gadgetry. Even the new stuff you got last month can be more erratic now. Friendships that can endure all these eclipses are indeed good ones. Children and children figures are having their friendships tested too. If they are of appropriate age, their marriages or love relationships are also getting tested. Parents and parent figures need to make more financial adjustments. The changes made last month might not be enough. A family member can be facing surgery or having a near-death kind of experience (this is not necessarily literal death, but psychological encounters).
The good news here is that you’re very focused on friendships this month and will most likely overcome the challenges. Also, with the Sun in your 11th house, you have a good feeling for technology, and these challenges will add to your knowledge. If you need to buy new equipment, the purchases will be good.
Your financial planet, Pluto, is still retrograde this month, but Jupiter in your money house is moving forward. After the 23rd, as the Sun moves into Virgo, Pluto will receive beautiful aspects. Prosperity is definitely happening, but at a slower pace. July 27–28 should have been a nice financial period as Venus made beautiful aspects with Pluto.
Love is very complicated this month. First off, your love planet spends the entire month ‘out of bounds’. So the search for love is taking you outside your normal social sphere. Singles are meeting people outside their usual circle, so there is more insecurity here. Not only is Mars ‘out of bounds’ but he is also retrograde all month. This increases the insecurity. It will not be a good idea to make love decisions one way or another these days. The good news is that Mars is in your 5th house, so love isn’t that serious this month. It is more about entertainment than commitment. After the 13th Mars retrogrades back into your 4th house. This can once again bring an encounter with an old flame (or someone who reminds you of the old flame). It also shifts your attitudes about love. Family values seem important from the 13th onwards. Though you might be searching far and wide, love is close to home.

Though the Western, social sector of your chart is still dominant this month, the short-term planets are entering their maximum Eastern position. You can’t ignore other people or have your own way entirely, but you have more independence than you’ve had all year. So now is the time to make any changes that need to be made. Now is the time to take more responsibility for your own happiness. If you wait too long, these things will become more difficult.
The good news here is that you’re very comfortable with less independence.
You enjoy exercising your social genius. You don’t mind getting things done by consensus and negotiation. High-handed independent action is not your style, Libra.
The month ahead is spiritual, a period for internal growth. But this internal growth will translate – by the spiritual law – to external growth. Cherish it. It is the necessary prelude. So, this is a month for spiritual studies, for the study of sacred literature, for attending spiritual seminars or lectures and for more involvement in charities and altruistic activities. With the ruler of the 11th house in your spiritual house, you seem to be exploring the spiritual world in a more scientific and rational way. You’re going deeper into the scientific side of the spiritual life. (Mercury in your 12th house from the 6th to the 22nd also favours a more rational approach.) Spirituality is not ‘mumbo jumbo’ but a science in its own right.
On the 22nd both the Sun and Mercury cross your Ascendant and enter your 1st house. You begin a yearly personal pleasure period. It is time to pamper the body and reward it for its yeoman service all these years. The body is of the animal kingdom and needs rewarding every now and then. If we are kind to animals, we should be kind to our bodies.
The month ahead looks prosperous. Venus, the ruler of your Horoscope, moves into your money house on the 9th, joining Jupiter who has been there all year. So the money house is a house of power this period. You’re taking a more active role in your financial life. You’re spending on yourself and your image. You’re projecting an image of wealth.

The love life began improving last month. Mars, your love planet, started to move forward again, and he will spend the entire month in your 5th house of fun and entertainment. Moreover, he is back ‘in bounds’. You’re back in your normal social sphere. As we have said, the love planet in your 5th house is not conducive to serious, committed kinds of relationships. It is more about fun and entertainment. You’re not really looking for anything serious: love is just another form of entertainment, like going to the movies or theatre. Venus goes retrograde on the 5th and thus you might be ‘backtracking’ out of a relationship.
You’re still in the midst of a yearly personal pleasure peak until the 23rd.
Enjoy! This power in your 1st house is not only good for indulging the body, but also for getting it into the shape that you want.
On the 23rd the Sun will enter the money house and you begin a yearly financial peak. You have a very prosperous month ahead. Your money house is chock-full of planets from the 23rd onwards – and they are beneficent ones as well. Add to this Pluto’s resumption of forward motion on the 2nd and you have more signals of prosperity. The financial confidence is back. You have clarity on finances. You know what to do and how to do it.
After the 23rd (and even before that) the short-term planets are making nice aspects to your planet of health and work, Neptune – a good sign for job seekers. And even those of you already employed can have opportunities for overtime or side jobs. (Permanent job offers need more study, however, as Neptune is still retrograde.)
Health is much better this month than last month. Mars’s move into Aquarius last month was a positive healthwise. You still have two long-term planets in stressful alignment, but most of the planets are either kind to you or leaving you alone. Health will further improve after the 23rd as Neptune starts to receive positive stimulation. If you feel under the weather, enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.

A lot of change is happening this month as two major long-term planets change signs. On the 6th Uranus retrogrades back into Aries, your 7th house of love, and on the 8th Jupiter leaves your money house and enters your 3rd house of communication. Mercury is ‘out of bounds’ from the 4th to the 20th
as well. Thus you’re outside your normal sphere in your religious and spiritual life. You’re exploring exotic and perhaps foreign teachings. You can’t seem to find the answers you want in your current path. This is OK. It happens very often.
You’re still in the midst of a yearly financial peak until the 22nd. So the month ahead is prosperous. But the interest in finance is waning. Jupiter, as we mentioned, leaves the money house on the 8th and the Sun will leave it on the 22nd. I read this as a good thing. Short-term financial goals have been achieved and there’s no need to pay special attention anymore. You can move on to other things.
Jupiter’s move into your 3rd house will bring a new car and communication equipment in the coming year – and high quality too. This is an excellent aspect for students below college level; they are successful in their studies for the next year. It is especially good for those planning to go to college as success at school will enhance their college prospects. It is also a wonderful aspect for sales and marketing people, for traders, retailers, teachers and writers. They all seem successful in their work.
The love life becomes unstable once again from the 6th onwards. But after seven years of this, you seem comfortable with it. You know how to handle it.
You can enjoy the sudden and dramatic changes that happen in your social life.
Instability is also exciting. Mars, your love planet, moves from your 5th house into your 6th house on the 16th. This again produces change in the love attitudes. The love planet in Pisces makes you more idealistic. You’re attracted to more spiritual types of people – to creative, artistic people. The workplace become a venue for love too. There are love opportunities with co-workers (or through them). The love planet in the 6th house also indicates an attraction to health professionals or for people involved in your health. A visit to the doctor’s surgery can become much more than it seems.
Venus spends the month in your own sign. On the 16th she starts moving forward again, increasing self-confidence and self-esteem. You look great these days. Venus enhances the physical beauty, grace and charm. You’re attracting the opposite sex this month.

Though your yearly financial peak has passed, you’re having a mini financial peak this month. First off, the Moon will visit your money house twice this month (usually she visits only once). Venus, the ruler of your Horoscope moves into the money house on the 2nd and spends the rest of the month there.
And Mercury is in your money house until the 13th. So your money house is strong. You’re not delegating financial management to others these days, but you are taking personal charge. Even those of you who have financial planners or accountants are supervising things more closely than usual. You’re presenting an image of wealth to the world – dressing, looking and acting the part. The financial intuition is excellent. Hard to imagine you lacking for any needful thing.
You’re in a yearly intellectual peak right now. The mental faculties are going to be enhanced for the next twelve months, as Jupiter will be in your 3rd house for most of 2019. But for the month ahead – especially until the 21st – the faculties are exceptionally good. You absorb and comprehend data, information and knowledge easily. You inhale it. Learning is much easier.
Students excel in their studies. Teachers, writers, sales and marketing people all communicate better. This is a great period to take courses in subjects that interest you. And if you have expertise in a subject it is a great month to teach it to others, either by the written or spoken word.
The problem with so much power in the 3rd house is that it can be too much of a good thing. The mind can be overstimulated. The thinking, if not kept in check, can get out of control. There can be problems getting to sleep. There is tendency to talk too much. Phone bills can get out of control if you’re not careful.
Siblings and sibling figures in your life have had a tough financial year in 2018. But the tide started to turn last month. They are taking on added financial responsibilities, but the wherewithal will be there to handle it. On the 21st, they enter a yearly financial peak.
Health will need more watching after the 21st. So, as always, don’t allow yourself to get overtired. Make sure you get enough rest. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
The love life looks good. Venus is making nice aspects to your love planet all month. But the current love looks stressed out. (He or she should feel better after the 21st.) There is a happy social or love opportunity from the 5th to the 7th. This can involve a work-related gathering, a co-worker or someone involved in your health.
