Your January 2018 horoscope

We’ll have an emotional start to 2018, with a full moon in motherly Cancer pulling a blanket around us all on Jan. 1 (9:24 p.m. EST). Watery stars align early in January, making it easy to connect to our feelings. However, we’ll dry off considerably when planets move onto the cool Aquarius plateau, Jan. 20.

Before then, a pileup of planets in Capricorn dominates, focusing our attention on mountains that must be climbed. Long-term visions work best now; hash out plans for steady ascension around the 17th, a powerful time to acknowledge strategic growth.

There are plenty opportunities to revisit conversations from the end of last year, as Mercury plays catch-up from his retrograde. Mars swoops into action Jan. 27, providing the stimulus to finish the job. A second full moon slips in at month's end — our blue moon peaks in showstopping Leo on the 31st (8:27 a.m. EST).
