The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of each year in your romantic and creative sector, so to start with this might not seem out of the norm that there is a lot of focus on all things fun, playful, romantic and creative. It is when the Sun leaves and returns to your work sector on the 20th January that you normally come back down to earth, as the year takes on a more work and job focused theme. That will still be the case this year, but not in the way you might expect. With Venus, planet of love here until the 18th January, the Sun here until the 20th January and Mercury from the 11th January to the 1st February, matters of the heart have no shortage of champions in the first three weeks of the year.
It will hit home that something is different when one by one Venus, the Sun and final Mercury leave, shifting their focus onto work and job matters, as they do at this time every year. The difference is that the focus won’t shift off matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative and if anything, this will become even more entrenched. This is when Saturn will come out from the shadows. This is the first full month of his three year visit, turning this into the major driving themes of 2018.
In the meantime, your relationships are also getting a major boost, especially from the support they are getting from Mars and Jupiter in your communication sector. Mars will leave on the 27th January, turning his focus onto home and family matters, but support between communication and relationship forces will continue all year. Even money matters are doing well this month, with Uranus’ direct turn in your financial sector on the 3rd January and Eris’ on the 10th January, marking a real turning of the tide.
Virgo January 2018 Love Horoscope
The Sun will always spend the first three weeks of January in your romantic sector, so this is always going to be a point in any year when the solar spotlight is on matters of the heart. And starting the month with Venus, planet of love on board also ensures that the most romantically charged weeks of the year are also underway from the get go. Once Venus leaves on the 18th January she won’t return until 2019, making it important to make matters of the heart and all things romantic a priority from the get go.
However, for the first time in 26 years, you also start the month with Saturn in your romantic sector, with his return just five days before Christmas a game changer. While Venus will leave your romantic sector on the 18th January, the Sun on the 20th January and Mercury, who doesn’t return until the 11th January will leave in the early hours of February, Saturn his here for the next three years. While Saturn is the hard taskmaster of the cosmos and he will ask you to take responsibility for matters of the heart, in return he gives you the power to move mountains if you have to.
The year starts with a mix of the very ordinary and the extraordinary, with the extraordinary prevailing throughout the coming year. The year also gets off to an extraordinary start for relationship matters as well. While starting the year with Neptune and Chiron in your relationship sector has been the norm for the last six years, also starting the year with Mars and Jupiter in your communication sector is giving your relationships a boost from the get go. That support between communication and relationship forces will remain strong for the rest of the year.
Virgo January 2018 Money Horoscope
This is an exciting month and an exciting financial year from the get go and is a result of both what is and what isn’t happening. It was Mars’ departure from your income sector last month that brought 16 months of planetary activity to a close. This has created more than enough momentum and once Venus returns to your work sector on the 18th January, she will be on a mission to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. Venus is the planet of money so will always have bias towards steering things in a lucrative direction, but the difference this year is just how much momentum you have.
Lucky Jupiter only wrapped up a 13 month visit to your income sector in October, so there is a huge amount of untapped income potential, just waiting for work and job developments to latch onto. With Venus returning to your work sector to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction, she will have plenty to work with from the get go. While the Sun’s return to your work sector on the 20th January will put his focus onto getting work and job matters up to speed for the year, as the planet of money Venus will be especially focused on where the money is. And there will be plenty for her to tap into.
In the meantime, while you have all of the advantages of 16 months planetary activity on the income front, by no longer having any planetary activity you don’t have the consequences. That means there is no more pressure on Uranus and Eris in your financial sector and this means last year’s financial tension hasn’t followed you into 2018. With Uranus turning direct on the 3rd January and Eris on the 10th January, this will be a chance to focus on new financial growth.
Virgo January 2018 Career Horoscope
With the Sun always returning to your work sector in January, the solar spotlight is always going to fall on your work situation and job matters. However, not until the Sun returns on the 20th January. This year you have a jump on this, with your work hat from the get go and this is a run up that is months in the making. Eight months to be exact, with your work hat on since the South Node returned last May. Since then the element of fate has been in play and you’re likely to have noticed, especially if you look back, how the different forks in the road, in hindsight line up perfectly.
Having the South Node here was the reason for last August’s lunar eclipse and for a solar eclipse next month. Things are still on a slow burn as you move into the New Year, even though Juno returned just before Christmas. As the queen of commitment, Juno’s focus isn’t on making things happen, but on fuelling a sense of resolve, helping you to commit to following your true path. Things should start to move on the work front when Venus returns on the 18th January, with the Moon’s first visit for the year playing into this perfectly.
The Moon will make its first visit to your work sector for the year from the 17th January to the 20th January, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters as Venus returns on the 18th January and the Sun on the 20th January. This is a chance to start setting things up, with most things coming together next month. Meanwhile, you start the year with the Moon in your career sector and while it will leave on New Year’s Day, this allows you to start the year with your professional instincts sharp and with a clear sense of professional direction from the get go.
