What does the first half of 2018 hold for you regarding love, money, work and health? Our fabulous GLAMOURscope writer Leigh Goldberg reveals all.

HoroscopeAries

(21 March-19 April)

Like actress Elle Fanning, you’re determined, fiery and a natural born leader. This is your year for taking charge of your cash, stabilising your career and revelling in romance.

Love Single? You’ll be focused on commitment and finding someone relatable. The stars predict an eccentric character. If involved, expect mental stimulation and wild, sensual nights.

Soul mate Aquarius, with their high standards, are on your radar. A fellow Aries or a Capricorn could also spark interest. Just know that Aries/Capricorn combos can be challenging.

Work Stability and leadership are your goals, which is great since you don’t like being told what to do. A promotion may be coming your way, especially around 18 March-16 May. The rules for 2018 are action and consistency. Then again, action is never a problem for a brave warrior Aries.

Money Accounting will be easy. It’s the right time to invest in your home and to make money through property.

Health You may overindulge during this period, but this won’t last as you crave exercise naturally. In fact, a marathon is on the cards.

Taurus

(20 April-20 May)

Like model Gigi Hadid, you’re sensual, determined and reliable. Get set for amazing career, financial and romantic opportunities. Add sexual pleasure and the first half of 2018 will see you owning your beauty as the butterfly inside emerges. 

Love If you’re in a relationship, expect to deepen your bond as commitment is important to you, or move on. If single, you’ll yearn for a relationship. But there’s a strong likelihood of a magnetic attraction to someone completely the opposite.

Soul mate Earth and water signs, especially Capricorn and Scorpio, are your catnip, and there will be common ground with Capricorn.

Work Media and communication, from journalism and public relations to teaching, are ideal, although your diverse interests may see you taking on an extra career.

Money Start thinking about who you can trust, as you may need a business partner. Your money is tied to other people this year – which may also mean an inheritance.

Health You love cooking and eating, just make sure to get plenty of exercise. Outdoor activities, such as walking, suit you most.

Gemini

(21 May-20 June)

Like supermodel Naomi Campbell, you’re chatty and adaptable. This year asks you to be gentler with yourself and to find new ways to make money. Love will have a fantasy vibe with many passionate moments. And work? There will be more opportunities for leadership.

Love If single, stop dreaming and get out there. You don’t need to be perfect to attract love, and the stars predict sexy flings. If involved, romance, fantasy and passion will dominate your love-life. Make time for intellectual bonding, too.

Soul mate You’ll encounter a range of mates, including mysterious Scorpio, adventurous Sagittarius and emotional Cancer. Other possibilities: earthy Taurus, dynamic Capricorn and charming Libra.

Work Meaningful work will be especially important, and you’ll get involved in a charity. Your job will feature feminine energies and children, and there may also be a career change.

Money Marriage or business partnerships will bring financial gain. Karma is strong and the more generous you are, the more you’ll receive. Be creative and go with your own flow, and money will come.

Health Detox regularly, watch out for urinary tract infections and stay hydrated. Make sure to guard your sexual health in light of all the sexy encounters.

Cancer

(21 June-22 July)

Like singer Solange Knowles, you’re protective, intuitive and sympathetic. Fortune will favour you financially. People will look up to you professionally and you’ll kick off 2018 productively.

Love Anticipate a change in love where you’ll release old patterns. Partnered up? You’ll have high ideals as to where you want to take the relationship. Having children may be on your mind.

Soul mate A Capricorn may grab your attention, as well as an Aquarius or gentle Cancer. There may also be connections with a well-balanced Libra and exciting Leo.

Work You’ll have practical, innovative ideas that will see you involved in many projects. There may be deals based around property, as well as the finance sector. Home industries as a career may appeal, too.

Money Expect financial growth. Put money away into financial institutions (including offshore) at a high interest rate. Consider enlisting the help of a financial advisor.

Health Include calcium-rich products in your diet. Strengthen your bones by doing strength training. Visits to the dentist will also be important, as is taking care of your nails and skin.

Leo

(23 July-22 August)

Like model Winnie Harlow, you’re creative, enthusiastic and generous. The start of the year asks you to give more where money is concerned, while still looking out for number one.

Love If in a couple, you’ll be getting close and experimenting sexually. If single, expect to experience a mature relationship with a sensual, friendly individual who puts your happiness first. You’ll feel overly lustful this year, so try to keep temptations under check.

Soul mate Look out for a strong Taurus, perfectionist Virgo and gregarious Leo. And have fun!

Work You want more for yourself professionally. If you’re dissatisfied, you’ll seek a different position in your company or employment elsewhere. There will be more involvement with big organisations and work with the public.

Money Projects related to children or different forms of communication in the technology sector are likely to result in financial gain. Business dealings may also involve your mother or motherly figure – or assets belonging to her.

Health Enjoy an increase in appetite, just balance the extra kilojoules with exercise. Be wary of weak ankles; warm them up first.

Virgo

(23 August-22 September)

Like actress Naomie Harris, you’re shy, analytical and diligent. You’ll be making deals with work partners, and money and love will be entwined, so get set for romantic adventures. The year starts off with possibility!

Love Singletons may meet someone through a family association. If involved, you’ll be indulging in pleasures of the senses. Get set for intense moments where many ‘interesting’ encounters will occur.

Soul mate You’ll attract a romantic Pisces, deeply passionate and intense Scorpio who will pique your curiosity, as well as a highly organised and authoritative Capricorn.

Work Your work will involve more technology – time to brush up on the latest apps and computer programmes. And you might be promoted. Overall, it will be a period of increased brainpower and opportunities in the spotlight.

Money Expect financial stability, as you gain control over expenses. More time will be available to structure your money, so put some cash aside in investments that will yield a big return. Financial goals need to be mapped out. You’ll be spending on luxurious items that will make you feel more feminine.

Health Nerves will definitely take strain. Stick to natural foods that increase serotonin levels. Drink calming teas, like peppermint, chamomile and lemon balm, and de-stress by exercising. Have your thyroid checked.

Libra

(23 September-22 October)

Like model Bella Hadid, you’re charming and sociable. This is a year to heal yourself where love is concerned, especially on a sexual level, where you’ll learn to trust again. You’ll benefit from dealing with other people’s finances, and work becomes a creative melting pot.

Love You’ll attract electric and eccentric encounters. Attached? A deeper commitment to each other and the relationship may occur. Expect many family get-togethers. If single, you might feel heart broken but the right match will make you feel safe again.

Soul mate A mysterious Scorpio will give your body the sexual healing it needs. You’ll delight in a somewhat hedonistic lifestyle with a Taurus. You may also attract social Aquarius whose mind will fascinate you.

Work A work-social life balance is important at this time. When an abundance of creative energy comes to you, go with the flow and trust your instincts. You may work with children and there will be lots of fun to be had.

Money Any secrets regarding your finances will surface. It’s time to gain control – stop hiding from the paper-work! You may also have to deal with matters of inheritance.

Health Sinus problems may arise, so cut down on dairy. Limit alcohol intake to a few glasses per week. Feet may suffer; make sure to put comfort first when choosing shoes.

Scorpio

(23 October-21 November)

Like actress Aishwarya Rai, you’re seductive and passionate. It’s time for new beginnings, breaking away from the old. A marriage proposal could happen when you least expect it.

Love It’s true that you keep most of your thoughts hidden in love, but you need to open up in order to connect more deeply with your loved one. For couples, talks of marriage may occur. If single, you will feel the need to settle down, and will look to all sorts of avenues to make this happen.

Soul mate Gemini and Aquarius may cross your path, but these relationships can be difficult. A fellow Scorpio will be around for mind-blowing sex and a Capricorn for a shoulder to lean on.

Work Change is afoot. You may even decide to join the family business or work from home. Your job may involve technology, as well as humanitarian work. You’ll have higher aspirations and will put in the effort to attain them.

Money Financial independence becomes important, especially now that your nest egg is growing. Keep the bulk of your savings in your own account.

Sagittarius

(22 November-21 December)

Like actress Zoë Kravitz, you’re optimistic, freedom-loving and honest. Money will come easy to you, supporting you if you decide to take time off for your own pleasure. It’s an expansive year bringing many opportunities for love.

Love When it comes to matters of the heart, expect an abundance of positive energy, fun times, good luck and excellent levels of communication. If you’re already committed start looking at travel plans together. If single, you may want something completely different and will be open to dating someone from a different religion or culture.

Soul mate Expect to attract a generous Leo or a Sagittarius. You may also attract your complete opposite in the form of a Gemini who will keep you on your toes. Virgo will interest you but not for too long – their view on the world is too narrow for you.

Work Sturdy relationships with colleagues and a harmonious work environment will be important to you. You’ll strive to be a pioneer in everything you’re involved in, which may include law, art, beauty, interior or graphic design and counselling.

Money All good karma relating to money will find its way back to you. The key now is to take all that good fortune and invest it into something that will bring you long-term interests.

Health Your gut will be affected the most, so stick to lots of healthy fibre and concentrate on your core – think Pilates and yoga.

Capricorn

(22 December-19 January)

Like actress Ruth Negga, you’re ambitious, practical and disciplined. There will be a recharge in money making and work will require a lot of the written word. It’s a sensitive time for romance.

Love It’s a passionate and sensitive start of the year for both you and your other half where tears may flow – of love and nurture and togetherness. Looking for love? There is a high chance of meeting someone through work or friends, so go to as many social events as possible!

Soul mate A sensitive Cancer will intrigue and challenge you as they are your opposite. Gemini may come into the picture, as well as Sagittarius who will expand your world. Pisces will also offer everything you need to bring calm into your ambitious world.

Work It’ll be a great start of the year if you’re a teacher. Your wisdom and knowledge will be sought after. Your writing skills will also be noticed at work and it’s a huge year for publishing and media. Your work will also benefit from any additional courses. Don’t be shy to take on management roles.

Money Improve your financial status, as money-making efforts will intensify. Mastering technology will help you with this, especially where you can connect with a lot of people online. Take breaks in between to avoid burnout.

Health Let “better safe than sorry” be your credo: don’t let flu go untreated. It will be important to calm your nerves as nervous tension may arise. Opt for natural treatments such as teas and your range of B vitamins. Breathing exercises will also help.

Aquarius

(20 January-18 February)

Like actress Kerry Washington, you’re inventive, eccentric, independent and intellectual. Look forward to an enormous abundance of creative vision and energy, with plenty of good fortune financially.

Love If you’re committed, a whole new phase of your relationship will start where questions will be tested. Topics such as marriage and children will arise, which may leave you feeling uneasy at times. If single, be prepared for a lot of flirtation when you least expect it!

Soul mate The first half of the year sees you attracting a fellow Aquarius, fun-loving Leo, mysterious Scorpio, stern Capricorn and an adrenaline-loving Aries.

Work The beginning of the year sees you feeling restricted with too many responsibilities. It’s likely you will be placed in a top position, and with your temperament and skills you can definitely handle it. Things will change in the second half of the year where you’ll feel more free.

Money It’s a lucky year for financial wins. Money is coming your way – hang in tight! Educating yourself on how to best invest your money will pay off. Expect some financial dealings with your mom or someone who you see as a motherly figure. 

Health Make sure your eyes are OK: book an appointment with the optometrist. Any heart conditions that arise must be tended to straight away. Eat foods that are heart healthy, and get your blood pumping everyday with at least 30 minutes of exercise.

Pisces

(19 February-20 March)

Like singer Rihanna, you’re imaginative, compassionate and sympathetic. The stars indicate that you’ll be stepping up to the plate and being on top of your finances. It’s a transformative time in your career and you’ll take your love life to a whole new dimension.

Love Expect deep transformational change in matters of the heart. You’ll fall in love with a new stranger who is highly sensitive and almost feminine in their intuition and understanding of you. Expect sizzling, off-the-charts sex with lost of experimentation between you and your partner. And expect to question your values in love and what you honour most.

Soul mate Big players right now will be a Pisces, who will understand you deeply; Sagittarius, who will open your eyes to many new things; and Scorpio, who will love you just as you are.

Work What matters to you most is that you get to express your creative genius, while being acknowledged at the same time. You’ll also want to do meaningful work that benefits the vast majority. It’s not just about a pay cheque for you.

Money There may be shocking revelations with your bank account. You may owe more money to others than you expected. Time to take charge of your credit cards! Money matters will become easier as you develop the necessary skills.
