Thinking of going freelance or setting up a new joint venture in 2018? Use these bespoke career horoscopes as your first step to success

Many of us survive in our careers, but how many actually thrive? A toxic culture of overtime and factors such as workplace stress and a gaping gender pay gap make the concept of a happy job an increasingly elusive one. 

And yet, if you can sketch an outline for the year ahead - a diagram that pays heed to your career hopes - you stand a much better chance of seeing those ambitions come to life. You become the agent of your own career, rather than just letting it passively “happen” to you.

Astrologer Yasmin Boland is here to help you do exactly that. She’s consulted the 12 signs of the zodiac to craft 12 professional horoscopes for Stylist readers. 

Whether or not you’re one of the around 70% of millennials who subscribe to the notion of horoscopes, use these predictions to kick-start a fresh new outlook on your work life in 2018.

Aries

Your mantra for 2018

“I am back on an even keel”

Your career in a snapshot

2018 is a massive year for you. For the first time in around 30 years, you have the planet Saturn, the work horse of the zodiac, in your Career Zone. Saturn here is going to be bearing down on you, pressurising you to do well. If you decide that you’re willing to commit to really hard work this year, it can be the making of you professionally. 

Taurus

Your mantra for 2018

“A more exciting life is unfurling for me”

Your career in a snapshot

As tempting as it might be to focus on your work amid the roller-coaster energies of 2018, know this: you will find more happiness and fulfilment in your private life in 2018. So, make sure you at least strike a balance between your professional ambitions and the needs of your personal life. That said, working hard this year will stand you in really good stead for success, two years down the track. 

Gemini

Your mantra for 2018

“Every day in every way, my relationships are getting better and better”

Your career in a snapshot

The past few years have seen many Geminis working extremely hard. Hopefully you have survived without being left feel too ragged. The good news for you in 2018 is that this is when the hard work starts to pay off, literally. As long as you can ditch any fears you have around money (counselling can help), it’s a year to get serious about your financial goals and start to achieve them. 

Cancer

Your mantra for 2018

“I expect the best”

Your career in a snapshot

Work like a dog this year, and you could do amazingly well. This is a year to go it alone financially (and therefore professionally), as much as you possibly can. Financial collaborations, partnerships and joint ventures all have their place, but 2018 is about you learning your own value and how to stand on your own two financial feet. There could be amazing financial developments for you this year. Knowing your worth is crucial. 

Leo

Your mantra for 2018

“I know my life is changing for the better, and I welcome change”

Your career in a snapshot

Working slow and steady is your best bet this year. Routine may be hard to stick to, with all that is going on. However, clear-cut timetables and systematic methods will stand you in really good stead at work, quelling some of the chaos. The best thing you can do to boost your bank account this year is seek out work which inspires you or others. May and August are high points. 

Virgo

Your mantra for 2018

“I believe in soulmates”

Your career in a snapshot

Focusing too much on work in 2018 won’t make you happy. Virgos are all about service and being good worker bees, but in 2018, you also need to look after yourself. Learning how to meditate or finding self-care methods should be your priority. The good news is that looking after yourself will also have a knock-on effect in your financial life and career. A happy Virgo will be a more successful Virgo. 

Libra

Your mantra for 2018

“All my relationships are all starting to flow more smoothly”

Your career in a snapshot

You have lucky Jupiter in your Money Box for the first time in a decade, so whatever you do in your career in 2018 looks like it will be well-rewarded. Jupiter here means that your options for making cash are widening. Think big! Your best bet for professional success is to find work which inspires you on a daily basis. The only caution is not to overspend or expand your business too quickly. 

Scorpio

Your mantra for 2018

“I’m lucky and I know it”

Your career in a snapshot

Work-wise, this is the right time to throw yourself into your job. The good news is that you should feel much less pressurised and burdened professionally and financially this year than in the past few years. Perhaps your hard work is paying off. You have learned a lot of lessons about money and business in the past few years, and those teachings will stand you in excellent stead in 2018 and beyond. 

Sagittarius 

Your mantra for 2018

“I am financially stable”

Your career in a snapshot

The past few years have been about work, work and more work (or finding work) for many Sadges. That cycle is now over, at last. Use the solid professional skills you’ve learned these past few years. If you’re not getting the promotion or income you deserve, face any financial fears you have. Ask yourself where they came from (hint: probably childhood). Then sit down and make a financial plan. It could be life-changing. 

Capricorn

Your mantra for 2018

“I am powerful and disciplined”

Your career in a snapshot

This is most certainly a year for you to work hard. Saturn in your sign means that if you shirk your duties, you really could pay the price. Saturn is the work-horse planet of the zodiac, and having him in your sign for the next couple of years means work needs to be attended to. It’s also a great year for you to look into financial collaborations, and joint ventures and investments. 

Aquarius 

Your mantra for 2018

“Love fills my world”

Your career in a snapshot

With lucky and expansive Jupiter in your Career Zone for most of 2018 and eclipses in your sign, this year could be a bit of a pinnacle when it comes to your overall career trajectory. Be confident and take calculated risks when it comes to your professional life; they could pay off. If you run a business though, be careful not to over-extend yourself. Financially, that which inspires you will monetise you.

Pisces

Your mantra for 2018

“Life is going my way”

Your career in a snapshot

The pressure is finally off you professionally after a few years of dramas and upsets which have stemmed from work. That was Saturn in your Career Zone. If you feel exhausted, take heart; all the challenges have left you in a stronger position at work. You can become a power player now. In fact, the main issue you face is making sure you don’t work so hard that you neglect your personal life.
