It's officially 2018! What’s better than a New Year's resolution? A couple’s resolution that you make together to benefit your relationship, perhaps. And what’s even better than that? How about one that is based on your zodiac sign and astrological forecasts?
Courtesy of expert astrologer Lumi Pelinku (side note, she’s also a hairstylist at Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa—take a look at her tips for the best hairstyles for your zodiac sign!), here are some great resolutions couples should consider making, based on each of your zodiac signs.
This is the best time to resolve to state your intentions with regard to your intimate relationships, Aries. Friendly and jovial Jupiter grants the gift of commitment and devotion, so take advantage of communication until later this year in November. Venus will retrograde in October as well, and this will be the best time to decide if you and your beloved are in for the long haul.
Resolution Idea: Resolve to enjoy the ride, and deepen your commitment to one another.
Your relationship sector will be enriched with bounty and zest this year. This influence of Jupiter will last until it completes in transit in November, so go out there and enjoy! In your established partnerships, you can expect to reevaluate your long-term relationship goals, and due to Venus’s retrogrades influence, you will be able to seek what it is exactly you desire in your relationship.
Resolution Idea: Set attainable and specific goals for your relationship, together, to keep it fresh and moving forward.
For the year ahead, Jupiter will shine its light on areas of career and health, Gemini. Career will definitely be on an upswing this year and your fitness regimen will be seamless. Jupiter is preparing you to look and feel your absolute best. This is the year of self-exploration and nurturing your soul.
Resolution Idea: Vow to make fitness dates together a priority. They say the couples that workout together, stay together, right?
Cancer, your luck in romantic and/or creative pursuits will be most emphasized this year, due to Jupiter’s influence. Take advantage and bask in the glow of childlike innocence and fun! This amazing energy will especially take flight when Jupiter is in retrograde in March. When Venus is in retrograde later this year in October, take note of your current relationships; and if you are planning to expand your family this will be a great time to plan!
Resolution Idea: Promise one another to have open and honest conversations about the future of your family, and be proactive in planning for it, one way or another.
Your domestic side will shine this year, Leo. If you are planning to purchase a house, or expand your family this is a great opportunity to do so. Securing your relationships is on the list of your primary goals this year. As Jupiter retrograde occurs in March, by surprise, you and your beloved will move in together spontaneously or state your commitment to one another. Relationships with your family will be enriched as well, and you can expect to want to be more involved with your family’s wellbeing. As the natural born leader that you are, your family will be looking to you for sage advice.
Resolution Idea: Spend more time with both of your families while setting and potentially achieving homeownership goals, too.
Fun times ahead Virgo! You will find yourself confident in your communications with others, and any statements to others will prove to be influential. Jupiter is reflecting themes of journaling, short trips, companionship, so take the opportunity to create the endless memories with your loved ones this year.
Resolution Idea: Embrace short trips and companionship and vow to go on more road trips or long weekends away in 2018.
You can expect your finances to be profitable, Libra. For any business ventures, you are planning to accomplish, luck is on your side. Jupiter will be making its presence known in your financial sector this year. Try not to go on too many shopping sprees especially during Jupiter’s retrograde this March.
Resolution Idea: Set some savings goals and stick to them. Investing in your future will truly pay off.
There is an air of pleasantry and radiance you will be expressing this year, dear Scorpio. Now is the time to explore your needs, and seek out your passions! Your level of confidence is expanded as Jupiter takes residence in your personal sign this year. Be sure to express your needs to your beloved as Jupiter is the planet of truth and happiness, so repressing your true feelings may backfire.
Resolution Idea: Communication should be a strong focus this year, so you can both express your needs and reach true happiness. Instead of repression, vow to communicate.
You are in for lighter hearted times, as the teacher Saturn has left your sign. In your relationship, themes of commitment have been raised in question. From October 5th to November 15th, Venus will go retrograde, and might raise themes of past relationships or disappointments. Try not to dwell, the new opportunity you have sought this year will be best for you in the long run.
Resolution Idea: Live in the present. Forget the past and focus on the now, as well as the future.
Happy times are here for you, dear Capricorn! As your planetary ruler, Saturn returns home to its own sign, your plans will reap to your benefit. From May 15th to November 6th, the planet Uranus will be sparking much excitement in your love life. The Solar Eclipse in July will herald themes of fully invested commitment and changes in your love life. Changes in your old routines will be altered significantly, but in the most positive way. Perhaps you and your partner are in talks of expanding your family? All in all, this is your year Capricorn.
Resolution Idea: Be open to whatever life throws at you. Stay positive and open minded and you’ll be sure to reap the benefits.
This year you can expect changes in your financial sector. As for your work goals, a promotion is on the horizon as Jupiter is ruling your career sector this year. In matters of love, a Lunar Eclipse will graze your relationship house in January, and this will influence you to feel the need to take your relationship to the next level. If for any reason you feel that your current relationship is not meeting up to your standards, you may need to take a step back, and reevaluate your relationship goals.
Resolution Idea: Be sure you keep a work/life balance in 2018. Your career may be expanding, but don’t let your relationship suffer or stifle.
This year marks the time of self-realization and expansion, as Jupiter enhances themes of travel and higher knowledge. Opportunities of love and romance will be most significant when a Solar Eclipse occurs on July 12th.
Resolution Idea: Ramp up the love and romance. AS you begin to experience more self-realization, it leaves room for your love to grow and romance to increase.
