The Week Ahead for Libra

22nd Jan 2018 - 28th Jan 2018Research, review and reboot. 

There are two ways of looking at Mercury’s link to Pluto and Uranus: it could shift a situation that has been stuck forever or it could turn what you thought to be a simple matter into a highly complex and inconvenient situation. You are the diplomat of the zodiac so do not allow your negotiating skills to disappear under the weight of an unexpected dilemma.

Research, review and reboot. Other people, including partners, could be facing their own problems which is why they are making your life something of a nightmare. All this will pass, although this is not an excuse for you to head down the river of denial.

Libra: 23rd September - 22nd October

The Month Ahead for Libra

 The year always kicks off with the Sun at the base of your solar chart, but this year Saturn has joined the party, so getting your ducks in a row in terms of home, career and life goals, has rarely been more pressing. Aim to put domestic and property matters to the top of the list and if anything needs repairing and replacing, get it done! A series of powerful alignments could change the shape and texture of one or more parts of your life, and although there is an element of fate as to what occurs, if the rumblings of change have been sounding for some months, push very definitely comes to shove. Pluto and Uranus are the great eliminators and transformers, but always good news if you get behind those things that require the old heave-ho.

The Year Ahead for Libra (2018)


Hopefully, you made the most of Jupiter’s transit of your sign last year by planting seeds for the future and grabbing those opportunities as soon as they appeared. Jupiter has now moved on to the zone of self-worth, so you continue to be in a phase where your star can rise and you can acquire more backing – financial and otherwise.

Saturn’s new position is less of a plus, but it can be worked with. Practical decisions may need to be made regarding a senior member of the family and some Libran parents are going to have to dig deep into their pockets for an offspring. Buying and selling property could be more challenging, and cost-cutting exercises on essential maintenance will prove a false economy.

There could be unexpected new arrivals and surprise weddings, and offers appearing in late January and early February could alter your horizons in the most unanticipated of ways. 2018 is a year to go places without reservations – and in every sense of the phrase.

Love and relationships

Uranus temporarily moves out of the relationship zone from mid-May to early November, so there is a more settled feel to your love life for a good part of the year. Add to this Venus’s transit of your sign (August to early September and all of November) and there could be some excellent relationship developments.

Whether you find love and happiness because you feel great about yourself, or your self-worth rises because someone loves you unconditionally, is the great chicken and egg conundrum, but whichever way round love happens, relish it. 2018, especially the last quarter, is a boom time for Libran nuptials.

The year’s eclipses fall on the axis of creativity and collaboration, which includes love-affairs, and eclipses are very fateful things. You could be struck by the thunderbolt of love (possibly in March) or problems may arise because a colleague or friend falls in love with you. Love? It’s complicated.

Work, life goals and finance

The positive aspect to Saturn’s arrival at the base of your chart is that it will give you the desire for a more settled lifestyle. And Librans always bring into reality what they most desire. The challenge you face is that you are going against the astrological current, especially if being settled means getting a home.

It may be that you cannot find the right place to live or that there are delays and problems with your home, but Saturn’s way is the way of persistence. And this same advice could apply to your career. You may feel as though people are standing in your way or that age is against you; and although you can make good money in 2018 payments could be delayed and costs rise in tandem with your income.

But press on. Jupiter’s transit of the zone of self-worth will help you make money and achieve good financial agreements. Indeed, some Librans will make their fortune in 2018.

Celestial Tip

Seize the moment. If you believe in something or someone with your whole heart, back that person or that thing. Second chances are rare. 2019 is going to be a tough year for the entire zodiac, so 2018 is not the time to delay a certain action with the intention of doing it next year.

At least get the foundations and the building blocks in place; better still, go full out for your ambitions. There will be less unpredictability to deal with, but there will be obstacle courses.

The intention of the universe being that what doesn’t crush you makes you stronger. Something to think about especially in late March and late June.
