The year 2018 starts with the sun, Venus, Saturn, and Pluto all in Capricorn. You'll always be the grownup in the room, and what you say goes. Happily, most of the time you will be just as likely to say, "Let's have more fun!"
Your partner will listen more closely to your opinions this year. Think twice and speak once if you can. This is most important in February and March, when every idea looks perfect at first and impatience is a frequent problem.
The three Mercury retrogrades are all in fire signs. In April, you both may want to have your own way. In August, quieter, slower fun could be more appealing. In November, social life may take over. By early December, though, intimate longings will win the day - and the night.
Venus is retrograde in October and half of November. Avoid any cast-iron commitments. Once Venus turns direct in Libra, revisit those commitments. If you've been thinking of making a formal, legal bond, wait for the Venus direct.
2018 is all about connection. Here, how love will manifest in your life and how to maximize its potential.
