ARIES Mar 21-Apr 20
While it's great to be focused on ambitions and career or your key relations, do not forget health and personal-relaxation time. As the year begins, resolve to take care of every subset of your life. With Saturn, your tenth house ruler, in its own sign for the entire year, the focus remains, more or less, on work and profession. Thank the stars as they bring lots of power to your personal and professional plans. Benevolent Jupiter will help you manage finances.
TAURUS Apr 21-May 21
Take it easy as the year begins. There may be a little confusion, what with everything seemingly moving slowly. Take time to relax and unwind. Your sign ruler joins Sun and Saturn in Capricorn, the ninth house from your Sign. Saturn is a positive planet for you. Even though its placement in the house of fortune may slow things down, Saturn will save you from any harm at the end of the day. Be tactful in handling tensions or delays. Routine disturbances may not let you achieve what you expect. Despite unexpected family expenses, your long-term finances remain undisturbed.
GEMINI May 22-Jun 21
Focus on present as the year begins. Enjoy the first few days even when everything seems to be scampering for your attention. Well, you can't always say no to family responsibilities. Work will always be there, as it has been lately, so a little string-pulling there to slow down won't matter much. You are worried about tomorrow a lot, these days. Stop fretting, says Ganesha. With Saturn travelling through the eighth house from your sign this year, there will be a lot of questions on your mind. But you can't get all the answers in one go.
CANCER Jun 22-Jul 22
The year begins on a slow note. Don't be low on confidence. You are cautious in the first few days of the month, which is not a bad thing. Career growth is slow, but if you continue to strive hard, things will start falling in place soon enough. Mars and Jupiter move through your fifth house early in the month. Though there will be difficulties to deal with in your daily activities, you will sail through nicely. With Jupiter placed favourably, expect good bonding on the family front. Household expenses zoom.
LEO Jul 23-Aug 23
The year's beginning is a great time to indulge in some hefty bargains, all of which may be available now, given the holiday season. Hold your horses there, though. Expenses soar, and you may find it all a bit too unsettling. Personal front remains a bit confusing; possibly, you don't know why a partner is so miffed. Spend time with your beloved. Business partnerships may run into discords too. Thankfully, transiting Jupiter and Mars will confer the stability you need to keep things going. Take care of your health. Also, be careful with your words and actions, advises Ganesha.
VIRGO Aug 24-Sep 23
Saturn moves through your fifth house for the whole year, so your creative instincts may be slow. But there still is a lot to cheer. Benevolent Jupiter, moving through your third house, views your ninth house of luck for a better part of this year. Not only will you be saved from losses, but you will also gain from your relationships with your siblings, cousins and close relatives - maybe even inheritances. The year begins on a low note, though. Given the turbulence in your personal realm, you may end up indulging in a spot of heavy emotional shopping, predicts Ganesha.
LIBRA Sep 24-Oct 23
Is the monotony of life making you dull? Ask yourself this question as the year begins. Don't worry; with Jupiter in your second house for major part of the year, expect your family to be your source of happiness. Finances will remain stable too, provided you watch them with care. However, despite all going well on surface, something may keep you anxious. Is the feeling of not being successful in your efforts making you confused? Utilise this time to hone your skills; alter the lens with which you look at the life. A small business trip is likely around 8th or 9th.
SCORPIO Oct 24-Nov 22
Mars, along with benevolent Jupiter, should act as a catalyst, enabling you to succeed and move ahead in your professional life as the year begins. Early in the month, the full Moon brings soothing effects. Be careful, though, as your daily routine may be affected adversely. Your boss may be the reason for your annoyance. Pressure tactics can infuriate you. Probably, by 5th or 6th, you may think of taking up a new job. Saturn passes through your third house - Capricorn - for the whole year, so there will be new opportunities, but only after some struggle, adds Ganesha.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23-Dec 21
When the year begins, you might be on the seventh heaven as you may have gained considerably or may have inherited some wealth or property. But obstacles on the way may not let you enjoy the moment. Expect some challenges here, and be prepared to tackle them with patience and tact, says Ganesha. With Saturn moving through you second house of family and finances for the whole of 2018, expect struggles and roadblocks in related matters. But if you stay mentally sorted, clean-hearted and ready to give your best, eventually Saturn will support you.
CAPRICORN Dec 22-Jan 20
Your sign is the temporary home of your own sign ruler Saturn this year. When the year begins, Saturn and Venus are combust in your sign, while Sun makes up the third in this intimidating trio. Lots of lessons and, don't be scared, meaningful encounters are in store. But it all won't be easy. January's beginning will be slow; don't be hasty or stressed as it will bring nothing else but anxiety and bad health. Keep an open mind, says Ganesha. Gains and wish fulfilment are not far, thanks to Jupiter, so wish for only the best. Finances remain stable.
AQUARIUS Jan 21-Feb 18
Whatever resolutions you have for this year, just jot them down. You may not be able to put all of them into practice immediately, so it would help if you have a ready reference. Your mind may seem a bit muddled. With ruler of your sign Venus combust - and in company of combust Saturn and mighty, fiery Sun - and all of them passing through your 12th house, things are bound to go a little awry. Ones looking for jobs will be enthused with the positive tidings. Progress and highs are foreseen. But don't let them get to your head, cautions Ganesha.
PISCES Feb 19-Mar 20
Slow down, look around, enjoy the scenery as this is a rare time, and it doesn't easily come in today's day and age. Life has taken on a slow pace this January, and there certainly is nothing wrong in it. Work to your optimum, and patiently wait for the results, says Ganesha. Don't try to rush anything, whether it's your getting rich or getting thin schemes or getting married plans. Thankfully, your career and general security will be good. You will also stay motivated to take good care of your health. Work and business sectors remain alive and busy.
