Welcome to your 2018 Girlboss astrology forecast. Our cosmic astro journey for the year ahead will be equal parts sweat and sweetness.
This year’s zodiac rulers are Aries, Capricorn, Scorpio, and Taurus, a squad that’s all about sensation, worthiness, deservedness, and learning our hell “yes” and our hard “no.”
With Saturn in Capricorn all year, we’ve got the boardroom badassery needed to rule. Coupled with Jupiter in Scorpio, our emotional endurance is at an all time high. With shake-it-up Uranus touching into earth goddess Taurus from May through November, we’ll be asked to find new ways to stand on our own two feet.
And as touchy-feely Chiron dips into Aries from April through September, it’s time to burn off any past pain around showing up full-throttle, and take full ownership over our lives.
The mantra to remember? “She works hard for her money so you’d better treat her right.” And to paraphrase Queen Missy, you are always, absolutely, worth it. In 2018, and this Girlboss astrology forecast says it’s time to work it. Let The Numinous explore your year ahead.
Aries & Aries Rising
2018 Mantra: “A solid foundation is what helps me grow.”
Work & Money: With Saturn in the most ambitious part of your chart all year, 2018 is the year you embark on a sure-footed climb to world-domination. Your general MO is to speed ahead and burn out fast. This is your chance to reap the rewards of taking it slow and steady.
Love & Sex:With Mercury going retro in your own sign March 22 through April 15, your birthday month could bring an old flame out of the woodwork—a pattern that repeats all year, with Mercury back-spinning in your romance zone in July, and house of intimacy in November.
Body & Spirit: Wounded healer Chiron also enters Aries in April, heralding five months of deep and cathartic healing. Use the summer months to dig deep into past hurts, even those of your family lineage, and know you have the opportunity to finally move on.
Taurus & Taurus Rising
2018 Mantra: “The security I crave can be found in freedom too.”
Work & Money:With Uranus stepping into your sign this year, it’s time to refresh your perspective on security. Any area of your work life that’s become rigid is asking for a refresh. Practice taking some higher stakes gambles to remind yourself of your worth.
Love & Sex: It’s a down and dirty year for you in love, Taurus, and you’re being asked to dive into what turns you on. With Jupiter in your opposite sign of Scorpio, it’s time to transform the way you see partnership and notice where you hold back from the darker parts of intimacy.
Body & Spirit:With your planetary ruler, Venus, stationing retro in the fall, body narratives are up for review. Your gateway to spirit is through your beautiful bod, so stock up on grounding crystals and CBD chocolates.
Gemini & Gemini Rising
2018 Mantra: “Because I’m worth it.”
Work & Money: 2018 begins Jan 1 with a beautiful full moon in your money zone, helping you know your worth. Linked to a powerful new moon solar eclipse mid-year, this is your year to break free from any limiting beliefs about your earning potential.
Love & Sex:Venus retrograde in the part of your chart that rules romance in October is an opportunity to review what lights your fire. Attached or single, you may find yourself asking where the fun has gone. Time to get creative with your dates!

Leo & Leo Rising
2018 Mantra: “When I look after number one I can show up fully for others.”
Work & Money: With Jupiter putting the emphasis on home, family and your own self-care this year, you may find yourself shying away from long hours at the office. Trust that time in the home zone will actually re-fuel your tanks and give you more energy on the job.
Love & Sex: With two potent eclipses in your partnership zone February and July, the first half of the year could find you re-vamping your closest relationships. Are you getting as much as you give? Try to see the other person/s as a mirror for how you could also show up differently.
Body & Spirit: The January 31 lunar eclipse in your own sign is an opportunity to leave any limiting self-beliefs firmly in the past. What have you learned about yourself the past few years that you can apply to your vision for this shiny new you?

Love & Sex: As Mars stations retro and tracks back through your sign from late June through August, it’s an opportunity to practice a hands-off approach to partnerships. Where can you let a lover take the lead? Explore what happens when you decide to simply enjoy whatever arises.
Body & Spirit: As tender warrior Chiron slips into your zone of emotional exploration, it’s time to let yourself come a little undone. Allow for plenty of private time and anything you think is too “weak,” go towards that place and let it help you redefine your concept of strength.
Aquarius & Aquarius Rising
2018 Mantra: “I am ready to reinvent myself from the inside out.”
Work & Money: With a pair of powerful eclipses in your own sign February and July, 2018 is the year for a top-down reinvention of yourself and the work you do in the world. What are you truly here to give, Aquarius? And what do you need emotionally to be able to deliver your gifts?
Love & Sex: Mars retrograde in your sign mid-summer could reignite a past passion, bringing with it an opportunity to revisit what you want in a lover. So much in your world has shifted, how is this reflected in the ways you want to be wooed?

Pisces & Pisces Rising
2018 Mantra: “Mental clarity liberates me from suffering.”

Love & Sex:As Jupiter dances through your house of adventurous expansion, it’s a love on the run kind of year. While other areas of your life are asking for a reality check, feed your appetite for wildness through partnerships that break all the boundaries.
Body & Spirit: This is also a key moment for releasing some of your past pain, which means noticing when you are suffering over your suffering. In 2018, only you can control your ability to keep your head above water.
