In many ways 2018 will be a golden year for you. Jupiter, the planet of expansion and abundance, will move through Scorpio until November 8, offering you an incredible opportunity for personal growth and development under an extremely optimistic vibration. Jupiter, however, is not only the planet of luck, so don't expect to coast through all areas of life. In fact, this planet's function is to simply expand what it touches. Still, enjoy the pockets of time when Jupiter meets up with Neptune in your true love sector on May 25 and again on August 19. Those will be your best times to meet a new soul mate if you're single.
Overall, however, when it comes to your love life, this might be a trickier year than usual -- especially if you're in a committed relationship. Uranus, the planet of sudden change, will give your 7th House of Partnership a taste of what he's capable of. From May 15-November 6, you might notice a surge of rebellion from your partner. He or she might demand more freedom within your relationship, feeling as if it's a burden more than a blessing. Or, it's possible that your partner will start to reveal uncharacteristic behavior that throws you for a loop. If you're in a stressful relationship, during these months it's possible that your partner will decide that the two of you need a break. It might even happen without any warning.
On the flip side, if you're in a happy relationship as 2018 begins, it's not likely to turn upside down overnight. Instead, Uranus might electrify your bond with one another, prompting you to get out of your relationship rut and breathe new life into your love connection. Experiment!
Venus will retrograde in Scorpio from October 5-31, and then will retrograde back into Libra and your escapist 12th house until November 15. With Venus out of phase in your sign, you might not feel as desirable as usual. Or, you might struggle with a significant romantic dilemma during this time -- possibly even an affair or an ex trying to come back into the picture. If you and your partner have any unresolved trust issues or previous trauma together that you never really worked through, this will be a perfect time to start couple's counseling. Assuming, of course, that you both want to salvage the relationship. The truth is, you might be ready to move on. And if that is your decision, Scorpio, don't forget, you've got Jupiter in your sign until November 8, helping to support in every way imaginable. Having a lucky charm in your back pocket can really come in handy. Use it well.
