The planets represent actions and energies within our charts and ourselves. How they operate is influenced by the signs they are falling in and the aspects they make with other planets and chart points. Where they operate most strongly is shown by the houses they reside in.

SUN: The sun is your core, your basic ego, your important center. It is your strongest vitality and characteristics. It is modified by other influences, most powerfully by the moon and ascendant. It also signifies masculine principals and men in your life and how you react to them.

MOON: The moon tells you how you react emotionally. It is your latent subconscious and how you are tied to the collective and the masses. It powers how you nurture and tend to things which require feelings and emotions. It explains the incentive and push behind reactions. It signifies mother and important women in your life.

MERCURY: Rules over your thought processes, your intellect and how you communicate with others. It is greatly responsible for the way you learn and how you give that learning back to the world.

Astrology and the Planets in your 2018 Horoscope

VENUS: Venus drives how you love and react to love. It is your sense of beauty, art and refinement. It has a lot of influence on finances and how you utilize them in terms of fulfilling needs and pleasures. It is the expressive engine for your passions and emotions.

MARS: Mars rules your driving ambitions, your aggressions and your ability to go after the things you need and want in life. it fuels your deepest passions and need for security. It is where you channel primal energies into your life.

JUPITER: Tells you where you are most expansive, most generous, most receptive to traditional religions and their place in your life. It is generally a fortunate spot in your chart but it also can bring excess and over-abundance .It is how you are most co-operative and benevolent in working with others.

SATURN: Saturn is your strictest guide. It is where you must be most responsible and disciplined in your life. It is a point of potential great strength when it is handled with dedication and commitment. Saturn is your testing ground.

URANUS: Powers your connection to the universal consciousness. It where you have the least amount of control yet where you reach the greatest potential with your thoughts, ideas and creativity. Uranus is about lightning, fireworks and all that is unusual

NEPTUNE: This guides your deepest spiritualities and love. Where Neptune lies in your chart is where you must exert the most clear vision and sacrifice for the good of others. It can lead to uplifting and enlightenment and universal love but it’s power ALWAYS lies within self. If reached for outside of self it can bring in addictions, phobias and other Neptunian weaknesses.

PLUTO: Pluto powers your deepest fears, those things which lie far below the surface and require your efforts and dedication to transcending and breaking through. Obstacles will need to be overcome and strength applied to its house and aspects and its promise..is freedom. Freedom from fear.

CHIRON: Chiron holds your deepest pains and life wounds. It powers your ability to heal self and in turn heal others. It is where you are vulnerable and potentially scarred. Healing this point in your chart brings great inner strength and triumph.

NORTH NODE: The north node powers your goals for the future. it displays lessons and understanding you need to assimilate into your life. It is the engine of your future and all that you can become in that future.

SOUTH NODE: Is always directly opposite the north node. The south node was the engine of your past. It is areas which are known and comfortable but no longer to be lived in. Applying the talents and skills found in the south node in your chart towards reaching the north node allows you to harmonize the two and empower them.

The astrological houses are the twelve sections of the astrological chart that describe the different spheres of human activity. The planetary placements in the houses tells us in what area of a person’s life the planetary energies, and the signs they are in, will be most operative.

In other words, if “the planets are the WHAT of astrology and the signs the HOW, the Houses are considered the WHERE. Where in the person’s life, in which area of earthly existence, does the energy indicated by the planet-sign configurations manifest itself with the greatest intensity?” (Alan Oken’s Complete Astrology. 1980. p. 312).

The houses, defined by an individual’s place of birth, rotate the 360 degrees of the sky every 23 hours, 56 minutes. That is the length of the sidereal day. Because of the Earth’s revolution around the Sun, the duration of the solar day is 4 minutes longer.

The field of the twelve houses in which the planets have their “mundane” or apparent motion is defined by the intersection of the eastern horizon with the plane of the ecliptic where the sun rises. In other words, the constellation rising at the time of birth marks the cusp of the first house. The cusps of the four major angular houses: the 1st, 4th, 7th and 10th roughly correspond to 6:00 A.M., Midnight, 6:00 P.M. and Noon, respectively.

The twelve houses are divided into quadrants or hemispheres that represent the four seasons. So, we begin the natural cycle at the Vernal Equinox on the cusp of the first house and complete the cycle at the same place where we began—Alpha and Omega.

The significance of this will become clear as we discuss the houses themselves. It should be noted that in an individual chart the cusp ruler will determined by the Ascendant, so if, for example, the Ascendant is in Gemini, then Mercury will become the first house ruler.

However, because it is in the natural house of Aries, qualities of the latter will be imparted to that house.

First House:

The first house cusp is always marked by the Ascendant, which passes through one degree every four minutes. This is why a precise time is so important in astrology. Without knowing the Ascendant, which changes signs every two hours, an astrologer cannot tell which sign is ruler of the first or subsequent house cusps.

The first house is the natural house of Aries and represents the qualities of the individual’s essential self, including the physical appearance of the individual as well as the inherent nature of the self.

This house is also indicative of how others see us. Aries are sometimes referred to as the children of the zodiac because the sign is young and feels free to act without fear of consequence. It is also revealing in the area of the native’s essential vitality. This house is the activator of the chart. As we progress through the houses it will be seen that each represents a stage in human development.

Second House:

The second house cusp marks the sphere of sense impressions, personal possessions and money.

This is the natural house of Taurus. The key to this house is found in the search to find oneself through what one owns.

It is material and sensual, representing one’s own money and possessions, in contradistinction to the 8th house that is concerned with other people’s money and inheritance. More than anything else, this house reveals one’s material resources and the process of earning money and acquiring material things. Planets in this house can tell much about an individual’s attitude and abilities in these areas of life.

Third House:

The third house cusp primarily signals the domain of communication and also the native’s sense of humour. This is the natural house of Gemini, and is the sphere of finding the self through what one knows. Many writers and communicators have strong elements in this house.

The energies of this house relate to the individual’s means of mental stimulation and activities such as thinking, speaking, writing, and even hobbies that stimulate or entertain the mind.

It governs formal, particularly early, education and the ability to develop perception. It also governs short journeys as well as the development of accurate, logical reasoning.

The Fourth House:

This fourth house cusp marks the Nadir, the northern sector, also known as the Imum Coeli, (I.C.).

The fourth house delineates the nature of the individual’s private environment or home. This is not limited to the family of origin and parents, particularly the Mother, but extends to the native’s sense of cultural roots.

The fourth house is the natural house of Cancer. It represents a native’s very sense of belonging to a familial group or “tribe.” In brief, it is the native’s environment and the search to find the self through feelings.

The Fifth House:

The fifth house cusp, marking the natural house of Leo, is the domain of energy flow involving the structure of the individual’s private environment.

This is sometimes referred to as the “house of children,” but it is also the house of pleasure. This includes the stimulation provided by the individual’s friends, social network, offspring, and entertainment. It is also the house of the performing arts and other means of creative self-expression. In short, this house is concerned with what the native can create.

The Sixth House:

The 6th house cusp describes the house that is largely concerned with work and health. This is the natural house of Virgo. It controls activity within the individual’s private environment. The energies of this house describe the native’s private work, type of employment, and service to others within the native’s private world. The 6th house is most commonly referred to as the “house of service.” In this house, the native seeks to find him or herself through what is learned. It is also very revealing in the area of health.

The Seventh House:

The cusp ruler of this house is known as the Descendant, just as the ruler of the 1st was called the Ascendant. This is the natural house of Libra. The 7th house is the sphere of partnerships, either marital, business or social. Often, these are legal partnerships.

It relates to the establishment of the self in the public world in which partnerships of some kind are inevitable. It governs the native’s characteristic public self-expression and therefore reveals how the native presents his or her self to others. It is the house of social cooperation and the self’s desire to unite with others.

The Eighth House:

Also known as the house of sex, death and inheritance. This house cusp is the natural house of Scorpio. It also relates to the physical structure of the individual’s public self. It covers energies emanating from the body, so it controls sexual attraction and death. The 8th house is almost as difficult to read as the 12th, since the secrecy of its ruler enshrouds this house in mystery.

The actual house cusp, as well as the degree and aspects of the planets within its sphere can reveal a great deal. Mythologically, Hades or Tartarus is the domain of the dead. So, the 8th house is associated with the “property” of the dead, such as possessions, wills, and legacies as well as the occult, which simply means “hidden.” This house also operates in the sphere of profound personal transformation, when as aspect of personality “dies.”

The Ninth House:

The 9th house is the natural house of Sagittarius. Whereas the 3rd house is, among other things, the sphere of early education, the 9th house cusp marks higher education, philosophy and the individual’s public self.
It is the house of personal conscience, confidence and devotion to life goals. It encompasses mental expression and public activities such as lecturing and publishing. It is also an indicator of long-distance travel, just as the third house indicates short journeys.

The planets and aspects associated with this house will describe exactly how this energy will manifest itself. The self finds itself through seeking and exploring, both physically and intellectually. For more on the nature of this energy, read the article on Sagittarius.

The Tenth House:

The 10th house cusp is known as the Medium Coeli (M.C.) or zenith, in opposition to the Nadir of the 4th house. The term M.C. is Latin for Midheaven. Whereas the Nadir is the northern sector of the astrological wheel, the M.C. marks the Southern sector. The 4th house was concerned with the security of the home.

The 10th is an indicator of the character of the individual’s public environment. The 10th house is the natural house of Capricorn, and is the sphere in which the native strives to make his public aspirations and goals a reality. Just as the 4th house Nadir describes the Mother (or Mother substitute) the M.C. describes the Father both literally and metaphorically.

The Eleventh House:

As the natural house of Aquarius, this house is occupied with the pursuit and impulses of altruistic and humanitarian ideals.

This is expressed through social networking. The Aquarian impulse to uranian innovation that seeks to revolute and surprise, even shock the existing order, reveals much about the concerns of this house. Although Aquarius is a “lover of humanity,” it does not tend to express this in a personal, so much as a global way.

Innovations and “blows against the Empire” express themselves as challenges to the social order and the abuses of power. So, the flavour of this house is decidedly humanistic as well as “scientific.” Technical advancements will be produced for the benefit of others. It is the house of hopes and wishes. This is the beginning of the altruistic impulse that finds its ideal in Pisces.

The Twelfth House:

This is the natural house of Pisces. By its very nature, the 12th house is always the most difficult house to read. It is the house of secret suffering, hidden enemies and ripened, or ripening karma. On the other hand (or foot) it is the house of hidden support.

It works on the principle of what you sow is what you reap. It is the house that rules meditation, mysticism, intuitive affairs as well as solitary retreat. It also contains the seed of re-birth. In other words, it is the house of unfinished business.

This is the last house of the cycle of human experience—the final stage of the wheel. The 12th house is analogous to what the Tibetans refer to as the bardo, or in between stage. The true Pisces has one foot in this world and the other in the next, and this fact goes a long way in describing the nature of this house.

This house also denotes selfless service to the public, and activities that serve to dissolve the self. The self is found through self-forgetting: through the final dissolution of the ego one finds the true Self.


If you are a big fan of the famous series, you would certainly want to know which character you are, based on your zodiac sign!

Aries

The first sign of this zodiac is known not only for the leading abilities and charisma, but also for the impulsivity and the temper the Aries often displays. The Aries is restless and cannot helplessly watch from the sidelines, especially when we are talking about a difficult situation that the native knows he is able to solve. However, people are sometimes overwhelmed by his aggressive nature. Daenerys Targaryen is perfectly matching this description.

Taurus

Prince Oberyn is devoted, reliable, romantic, elegant and kind, just as the Taurus native. He enjoys the best things in life and is not shy to show his hedonism or materialism to anyone. Unfortunately, he can also be ridiculously stubborn when he has a goal, which in the end will only bring his own downfall. Perhaps it is better to learn this lesson from Oberyn and let bygones be bygones.

Gemini

Gemini represents two different personalities, both in one person. When dealing with this native, people often have uncertain feelings. Is he sociable? Funny? Loving? Or perhaps he is unhappy with a cold, wandering heart? When it comes to Arya, you never know how things are.

Cancer

Robin Arryn is one of the few pacifist characters, who will offer you a helping hand. His lack of restraint in showing his feelings, in addition to his love for his mother are the characteristics ofthis zodiac sign. It is said that the people born under this zodiac sign are prone to mood changes and selfishness as defense mechanisms, if they are not properly taken care of. Moreover, they are extremely loyal to their close ones, their family and their home, avoiding at all costs war or physical conflicts.

Leo

Tyrion Lannister is the best character to represent this zodiac sign. Despite all the challenges he faced, his self-confidence, his courage and the gentle way he talks helped him survive the most brutal situations. Intelligent and creative people often tend to be lazy and arrogant, due to their admirable thinking capacities.

Virgo

Just as Jon Snow, the natives of this zodiac sign are independent, down to earth, but often misunderstood. Their modesty, practical spirit and diligence are clear signs of a competent leader. They are able to strongly emphasize with others and they don’t necessarily like the spotlight, although their own abilities often bring them right there. Unfortunately, their enemies get aggravated by this. Sometimes, the Virgo natives can become too dedicated at work. Due to their loyalty and ethical behavior, the natives will complete a task, despite the fact the task itself doesn’t bring them any pleasure or satisfaction.

Libra

The dominant planet of this zodiac sign is Venus, the goddess of love and beauty. Which character can better represent it other than Sansa Stark? Sansa, just as any Libra native, can be futile and hesitant, but she is peaceful, upright and faithful at heart. She is an advocate of marriage because she functions best when she is not alone. However, the Lady of Winterfell is well known for her cunning nature.

Scorpio

Just as Khal Drogo, you are strongly attracted by force and passion. Your personality is often unable to establish intimacy, but in the right circumstances, you can be more loving than most people. You tend to pay attention to your own feelings, which means you are not a person who easily opens up in front of others. People need to gain your respect, otherwise you will not offer yours.

Sagittarius

Jorah Mormont is a very envied character. He is full of energy and an extrovert, who can easily adapt to new situations. Like Jorah, the Sagittarius is an open person, idealist, intelligent and very ambitious. He needs the freedom of doing whatever he wants, even if this is something that affects his relationships with others.

Capricorn

Everyone hates Littlefinger. But if he is anything like the Capricorn, he has many handy qualities, like discipline and responsibility. Besides being the inventor of chaos, Littlefinger is a business man and an efficient manager, a man who doesn’t like doing things by halves. His work is a fundamental part of his identity. Littlefinger’s paranoia and common sense allow him to overmatch his enemies before time. Nevertheless, he is not able to let the past behind, he is unforgiven and he known everything. If he would have been able to forgive from the start, none of this would have happened!

Aquarius

It’s quite odd to compare Lady Melisandre, a lover of fire, to an air sign, such as Aquarius. Unconventional and emotionally shut down, Lady Melisandre and the Aquarius will fight until death for a cause they believe in. They have a solid perception of the future. Their weakness, however, is fiction and uneasiness.

Pisces

The Pisces native is not very much different than Ser Davos Seaworth, both of them wise, intuitive and impartial. Both of them are compassionate and protective of their dear ones and they would sacrifice their lives for them. Because Ser Davos is intelligent and observant, he is able to learn from other people’s mistakes, just like the native of this zodiac sign. He despises unnecessary cruelty and his friendly nature allows him to enjoy the company of different people with different social backgrounds. The Pisces natives are also art lovers and they enjoy improving their knowledge. Try not to give your trust too easily to your dear ones. Sometimes, even the people we love are evil.

The year 2018 brings luck on all aspects for three signs that are thought to be the spoiled signs of the zodiac this year. So, find out if your sign is one of them. Here are the lucky signs of the year 2018.

Leo

With or without luck, Leo is and will always be the star of the zodiac. A Leo is in the spotlight no matter where they are, without putting too much effort into it. They have a magnetic personality and a strong character. It is very easy to like a Leo, but it is just as easy to find them unbearable. The Leo is going to be one of the lucky signs of 2018 simply because of their winning attitude which will only attract good things on their path. Even so, as nobody is perfect, every time Leos make a mistake, they won’t give up but persevere in everything they set for themselves. In 2018, they will enjoy an amazingly good health, they will have a series of opportunities for their careers and their love life will be really smooth.

Sagittarius

Sagittarius is one of the most adventurous signs of the zodiac. It is a sign with a free, profound and very imaginative way of thinking. It seems as if the Sagittarius has no boundaries to what they wish for or to what they want to achieve. And this way of thinking seems to be very helpful to them in 2018 because as they have no boundaries, there is nothing to constrain them and they do not set obstacles for themselves. And when you aim high and you can see no obstacles to prevent you from achieving your goals, the chances of them happening are much higher. So, this year the Sagittarius will find balance in their lives and answers to some of the questions that have been tormenting them the most. Sagittarius natives will encounter countless beneficial opportunities, both in their careers and when it comes to travelling. And we know all too well just how much a Sagittarius likes to travel!

Virgo

For Virgo, unlike 2017, the year 2018 is going to be extraordinary! And this regards all levels and aspects of life! 2018 is going to be one of the best years for Virgo natives as it is going to be filled with material and emotional wellbeing. In 2018, Virgos are going to strengthen the relationships they already have, but they will also create new relations with people they admire and with whom they connect on a deep level. Their romantic relationship, if there is one, will be long term and will blossom in 2018. Single Virgos should know that they will have the opportunity to meet their soul mate this year. All the wishes that Virgos have for 2018 are going to come true without too many efforts.
Signs that are going to be lucky in love in 2018

There are several signs that are going to have an extraordinary luck in love in 2018. Find out if your sign is one of them!

Sagittarius

Sagittarius people have great odds of finally finding their soul mates this year. They could be considered the sign with the greatest luck in love in 2018. If you are a Sagittarius, prepare for an extremely beneficial period of time for your love life, especially during the first half of the year. Try to take all things as they are because there is no point to stress over them and worry. You will see that, in the end, everything will work out and you will realize you are actually happy.

Scorpio

Scorpio people also have good chances of finding a stable partner in 2018, with whom they could build a harmonious and long term relationship. For Scorpios, love seems to be in the air since the beginning of the year, whether we are talking about an old spark coming back to life, or about meeting an entirely new person. Either way, the Scorpios would better not keep wishing to be able to control everything, as they tend to, but they should better wait and see how the relationship evolves by itself. The stars will have several challenges for the Scorpio, but they will be properly rewarded for their work and efforts.

Pisces

Pisces is another sign with luck in love in 2018, even though they might not entirely realize this from the start. The year starts in an ordinary, trivial way, without any important relationship-related events. However, starting the half of the year, things start to change for Pisces. In June, people born under the sign of Pisces will have the opportunity to strengthen their current relationship or start a new and promising one. This is the right time for the Pisces natives that are involved in a serious relationship to go to the next level, so that their relation with their partner can run smoothly.

Virgo

2017 was a beneficial year for Virgos, especially on a romantic level. However, 2018 is going to be much more intense! The stars have many pleasant surprises for Virgo natives regarding their relationships with their partners. Virgos that are involved in a long term and stable relationships will find new ways of communication and new ways to become closer to their partners, thus their relationship will grow even stronger. Virgo natives that are looking for their soul mate must be patient, but more than that they must have faith in themselves and in the fact that this thing, this meeting will take place sooner than they think.

For many people, diets are a real agony and not because they can’t respect the diet requirements, but because the results fail to appear, no matter what they are doing. Other zodiac signs, on the other hand, are risking to gain weight, influenced by the alignment of the starts.

For some zodiacal signs, 2018 is not going to be a gratifying year because, regardless of what they do, the tendency to gain weigh will be obvious.

Taurus
The natives of Taurus are, generally, food lovers, so they have a natural tendency for weight gain. Yet, because they like to take care of their appearances, the Taurus ladies tend to keep straight records about their weight, so any extra ounces will be quickly eliminated through severe diet. Exercising also plays an important role and the Taurus natives are not lacking energy. Yet, in the first part of the year, things might get out of control, maybe because of all the worries.

Pisces
The natives of this sign are quite fluffy, with a voluptuous shape and the tendency to gain weight in the abdominal area. They are not into sports, but they also don’t eat very much. Yet, their hectic schedule has consequences. The first 3 months of the year are going to be very productive professionally, so it’s possible to skip some of your sleep and relaxation hours, which will generate weight gain. The proper diet for you is one based on vegetables.

Gemini
Although they are quite active, Gemini are real chefs in the kitchen, so it’s not a wonder they have the tendency to gain weight. Someone has to eat what they cook. Due to the fact that Geminis have plans of taking gastronomy classes during 2018, they risk to tip over the weight scale. If you want to avoid this situation, rather than eating large servings of each dish, try to only taste what you cook.

Leo
Despite your athletic structure, you risk to gain weight because of your increased appetite. No matter how much you eat, you are always hungry and this is causing you to forget any diet restrictions and heathy aliments. Due to the fact that the second part of the year is going to be rather stressful for the natives of Leo, you risk to indulge in sweets when trying to cope with all the stress, which is the most dangerous solution in this case. To avoid waking up one day with no dress to fit you, it’s recommended to weight yourself weekly.

Whether we are talking about the ideal partner, about your most important quality or about the way you react in a difficult situation, stars have a great influence on you. Apparently, they can even dictate your success in your career, so find out if your astral sign is one of the lucky ones career wise:

Aries
The Aries is an optimistic sign, who knows exactly what they want in their lives. Your determination gets you your long-dreamed job and this will mean a successful career for you. A job in education or public administration would suit you best. Regardless of your passion, you will succeed in everything you want because of your ambition.

Taurus
Taurus natives are very honest and intelligent. Because there many things that you are good at and, at the same time, you can work with other people as well, the best job for you would be in finances or the legal system. Whatever you are going to do, you will enjoy your work.

Leo
Leo natives want power and success more than any other person. You like to lead and, probably, you will one day succeed this. You may have an important career in politics and you could become the leader of a party. Whatever you might do, you will definitely succeed.

Virgo
Virgo natives usually pay a lot of attention to details. You are probably very well organized and a deadline is never a reason to worry. A job in sales force or in research could turn into a successful career for you.

Scorpio
Usually, Scorpio natives are very intelligent, as mathematics was your favorite subject in high school. You probably had the best grades in your class, especially at subjects related to science. In your case, success could mean a career in IT or engineering.

Capricorn
Capricorn natives are usually very responsible. You take the important things in your life very seriously and you want a position in leadership. Being a CEO would suit you very well so, if you don’t already lead any company, it’s time for you to work harder to fulfill your dream.


We’ve probably all heard the planet Mercury blamed for miscellaneous mayhem: My computer crashed, Mercury must be retrograde. The car won’t start, Mercury must be retrograde. That certain someone I’ve been lusting after didn’t phone even though I was promisedI’d get a call — Mercury MUST be retrograde!

During 2018, Mercury goes retrograde three times:

  • March 22nd 2018 (Aries) – April 15th 2017 (Aries)
  • July 25th 2018 (Leo) – August 18th 2018 (Leo)
  • November 16th 12th 2018 (Scorpio) – December 6th 2018 (Sagittarius)

mercury retrograde 2018

Well, what exactly is this mysterious culprit of chaos?

WHAT IT IS

Three or four times a year, Mercury appears to be moving backward in the sky when spied from Earth. These two- to three-week cycles of “backward” motion are called retrograde periods. And until Mercury looks like it’s going “direct” again, innocent earthlings can expect delays, interferences, spontaneous schedule changes, malfunctions in small appliances (think computers, answering machines), mix-ups, mental confusion, missed appointments, misdeliveries, misunderstandings, misinterpretations…whew…and a general breakdown in communications — particularly those of the interpersonal sort. Contracts and negotiations have the potential to go wrong, or could require rehashing at a later (Mercury direct!) date. Mercury retrograde is also not the best time for making up your mind.

LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT?

So what kind of chaos does this spell for your love life? Expect fights over things that are better left unsaid (or at least better said when Mercury is no longer retrograde) and breakups caused by speaking too impulsively or reacting to a distortion of facts. Did your sweetie really say that? Maybe. Just check our Merc-O-Meter (above) before letting the pots and pans fly. Don’t even think about asking someone out during this cycle — any relationship starting off under Mercury retrograde is destined to be doomed. Also, you may want to consider planning weddings and other romantic unions for times when Mercury is calmly moving forward.
