Welcome to a brand-new year, Aries! January swooshes in with some epic planetary activity, making sure we all sit up straight and fly right. For starters, the month is bookended by TWO full moons (normally there’s only one per month). Both lunations are supermoons, and one is a change-making eclipse. Yeah, it’s gonna be obvious pretty quickly that 2018 means business. (“We’re not doing 2017 again, guys—is that clear?” declares the cosmos.) It all starts on January 1, when the new year begins with a full supermoon in Cancer and your fourth house of home, family and foundations. While you’re busy making lofty resolutions to take over the world, la luna sits you down in your favorite comfy chair for a stern but motherly chat. First of all, do you have the emotional bandwidth for your grand mission? Are you getting enough self-care and nurturing to keep your tanks? Are your family bonds in good standing, or are you still letting some childhood wounds creep into your dynamics? There’s no sweeping past this stuff now because it ALL matters.

Talk about making an entrance! The new year charges in with a flurry of big ideas, vibrant people and exciting conversations. There’ll be no gently easing into 2018 for you, Bull. With the Sun in Capricorn and your visionary ninth house until January 19, you’ll have your sights set on adventurous new possibilities and a few calculated risks. In both personal and professional realms, dare to stretch outside of your usual comfort zone when you start designing your 2018 plans. And don’t forget to include some good companionship for those ventures. This is a year when dynamic duos really take flight, thanks to lucky Jupiter in your partnership house until November 2018. It’s a welcome relief after five years of struggle and setbacks that came from hosting heavy-handed Saturn in your interpersonal houses from 2012 to 2017. But as of last month, you’re free of those shackles—so start seeking new partners in crime AND enjoying the ones you have. Read your full horoscope here!
Slide into your most sensible footwear as you lunge into 2018, Gemini. You’ll want to land on well-tractioned soles that you can plant on terra firma—and maybe even dig in your heels and claim your turf. This January is bookended by two rare full supermoons, embroidering the month with some rapid-fire moments during which it feels like everything is happening at once. Even master juggler Geminis could get a little overwhelmed by this pace. On January 1, a Cancer full supermoon beams into your second house of work, money and security. Set aside the lofty New Year’s resolutions for a moment and add a few practical ones to the list. For bonus points, you might want to quantify them (e.g., “increase income by $1,000/month,” “initiate screen-free Sunday mornings with family” or “one date night per week minimum”). Don’t just write down stuff you think you SHOULD do. What gives you life, Gemini; what makes you feel grounded and whole? Make those things a regular practice, a daily devotion, the guideposts behind your bigger choices. Then you’ll be in a stronger position to start plotting your power moves.

January comes in like a lamb and goes out like a lion—literally! The month is bookended by two full supermoons, the latter being a total lunar eclipse in YOUR sign. The whole world will experience a powerful start to 2018 because of this cosmic activity. But you may have some unfinished business to clear away during the first couple days of the year. On January 1, the first full supermoon lands in Cancer and your twelfth house of healing, closure and transitions. A situation you’ve been forcing or a pattern you’ve been clinging to does NOT belong in this brand-new calendar year, Leo. No amount of guilt, rationalizing or denial will prevent circumstances from putting that truth right in your face today. Maybe you’ve avoided feeling some pain or grief, and now it comes to you in a powerful dream or through a rush of unexpected emotions. Perhaps a difficult person’s New Year’s Eve antics have you at wit’s end. Or maybe you’ve just been handing your power to someone else, and you have a giant New Year’s Day epiphany that it’s time to step up and own your Leo prowess. Read your full horoscope here!
Look around, Virgo: Who are the people in your tribe as 2018 begins? The New Year kicks off with a January 1 Cancer full supermoon, which will spotlight your most important friendships and collaborations—as well as areas that need attention, change or closure. So take inventory. Are there people who, frankly, don’t add a whole lot to the quality of your life? Are you doing too many things alone? The first full moon (and day!) of 2018 could reveal new ways you can team up to make the daily grind easier and a lot more interesting. A trailblazing project—possibly one that involves technology or brings together an avant-garde “niche” community—might become a big part of your year ahead.

Ready, set, #goals! January gusts in with a blast of ambition, right from the get-go. The year begins with a January 1 full supermoon—the first of two full moons bookending this month. Because it’s in Cancer, this lunar lift will cast its incandescent beams in your tenth house of career, goals and recognition. The energy can position you for a public role or a leadership position as the calendar turns. Your relationship with an important man, possibly your dad, could be a focal point of this emotional full moon. Expressing your feelings, either directly to him or by venting to a supportive friend, would be cathartic. No need to carry any anger or frustration into the new year, Libra! No big plans for 2018 yet? This full moon might provide a crystal-clear download about your next direction. Since Libras are communal creatures, why not gather a few focused friends for a cozy New Year’s Day meal to set intentions? Make it a mini-mastermind and write everyone’s top resolution on one page, then distribute copies. Something magical happens when we become the guardians of one another’s dreams. And here’s a little extra nudge: The July 12 Cancer solar eclipse will catalyze these intentions even more. (Make loose plans to meet again for a midyear check-in!) Read your full horoscope here!
There’s no going quietly into 2018 for you, Scorpio. For starters, this will be one of the most boldfaced years you’ve had in more than a decade, since effusive, auspicious Jupiter is in your sign until November 8—a cosmic boost you only get once every 12 years. On top of that, energizer Mars is in Scorpio until January 26, and when these two fire starters unite on January 6 (their first hookup in your sign since 2006), be prepared to launch! Whatever you’ve been deliberating over could rapidly transpire (yes, you SHOULD leave that soul-deadening job, or book that trip of a lifetime, or send your demo reel to that agent your friend wants to introduce you to). Mars and Jupiter are both motivational celestial coaches in their own right; under their combined effect, you’ll have the courage and vision to take a bold risk on your own behalf. There’s plenty more revving you up in January. A rare TWO full moons bookend the month, both of them potent supermoons. On the evening of January 1, the sky will be aglow with a full moon in Cancer and your farsighted ninth house. Crumple up those “sensible” resolutions you halfheartedly scribbled and go big, Scorpio. Dare to be “unrealistic”: The year’s very first day gives you a gambler’s instincts. With Lady Luck (aka Daddy Jupiter) on your side, pushing past your comfort zones will reveal opportunities or perspectives you’d normally miss. The catch? You won’t see them unless you take that leap of faith. Widen your viewfinder, Scorpio! Read your full horoscope here!
Work hard, rest hard. Your new year gets off to a mostly productive start, as the Sun makes its annual trek through Capricorn and your industrious second house until January 19. You’re eager to roll up the sleeves of your Fair Isle sweater and make headway on those 2018 projects. But not so fast! Energy planet Mars is puttering along on a low tank as it snoozes in Scorpio and your twelfth house of R+R until January 26 (accompanied by your ruler, Jupiter, which is in Scorpio until November). While this can be a highly creative time, you won’t be operating at peak levels until Mars moves into Sagittarius on January 26, marking its first visit to your sign in two years. Slow down and take advantage of the opportunity to nurture yourself and your personal connections rather than just diving into “doing.” You might have some important insights or emotions to process anyway, as January is bookended by two potent full supermoons. The first arrives January 1 and is in Cancer, which spotlights your eighth house of intimacy, secrets and mergers. Some of your closest bonds could hit a turning point as the year begins. Are there any truths you’ve been stuffing down? A full moon in this emotional zone can bring a LOT bubbling up to the surface—to your surprise as much as everyone else’s. It’s probably too late to warn you, but pace yourself on the New Year’s Eve drinks because your feelings will only be magnified. Read your full horoscope here!
And you’re off! The new year begins on a vibrant and extroverted note for you, Capricorn. The Sun is in your sign until January 19, prodding you to take chances and make a start fresh.

Change is in the air! The first one lands in Cancer and your committed-relationships house on New Year’s Day, which could bring a major turning point to a business or romantic alliance in the first two weeks of the year. With the spotlight on your closest ties, you’ll get clarity about the ones you want to nurture in 2018. Take inventory of where the give-and-take might be out of balance. Even the best partnerships need care and feeding. Set some adventurous and inspiring shared goals for the year to put the wind back in BOTH your sails. Read your full horoscope here!
Work hard, rest hard. You’ll need to consciously regulate your energy as 2018 begins, Aquarius. Most years, you’re able to ease in at your own languid pace, because the Sun is making its annual visit to Capricorn and your restful, flowy twelfth house until January 19. This realm rules endings and transitions, and you probably won’t be ready for any hardcore New Year’s resolutions until Aquarius season begins after that. But this year, you’ll experience dueling desires to lounge and to lean in. Just when you’d normally be taking a planetary power nap, motivator Mars is gunning through Scorpio and your ambitious tenth house (until January 26). The red planet could bring incessant career demands or a major deadline that doesn’t leave much, if any, downtime. And you won’t want to squander this rocket fuel! Mars only comes here every two years, and you’re poised to make some major moves. World domination is hard to accomplish while you’re wrapped in a cashmere throw or puttering around in fleece-lined leggings. With expansive Jupiter riding shotgun in Scorpio (and setting your career house ablaze until November), 2018 could bring a promotion, a new job or a leadership opportunity unlike anything you’ve been offered in a while. Mars acts as a catalyst, and your savvy salvos in January will have a ripple effect throughout the rest of the year. Read your full horoscope here!
