The quote, “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves, that we are underlings,” from Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare has been readapted by John Green in his novel The Fault in Our Stars. This simply goes to show the pervasive belief in astrology through the ages. Even today, there are people who believe in the ability of stars to predict our destinies. While some say it’s a load of rubbish formulated by hacks, others stand by it till death.
No matter on which side of the fence you stand, what’s to lose in giving it a try? Check out your prediction for this year and see if you’ll be finding love!
1. Aries (March 21st To April 19th)
2017 has perhaps been a year of fleeting romances and short-term relationships. However, you’re in for something good this year. Expect to meet someone who wants to be in it for the long haul. You might think that last year’s experiences represent what you truly are, but this is misleading. You are built for a long-lasting relationship and that’s just what you’re going to get in 2018.
2. Taurus (April 20th To May 21st)
You’re aching to break free this year with 2017 having made you feel like a caged bird. You are likely to be more pursuant of relationships to their fruition rather than playing hard to get. You will let go of that long held crush that has just been a case of unrequited love. Look out for friendships that could blossom into something more.
3. Gemini (May 22nd To June 21st)
Avoid being alone this year as it will really dampen your emotions. You will come to realise that it is not a person that makes you happy but the little things in life that you have perhaps overlooked this past year. Expect your creativity to yield ideas that will become very profitable.
4. Cancer (June 22nd To July 22nd)
2018 will be a year of getting rid of the baggage you carried all along. You will forget about previous liaisons and be prepared to meet someone who is truly your perfect match. You have wasted too much time giving undeserving people second chances. You will finally spend time with those whose association with you is meaningful.
5. Leo (July 23rd To August 22nd)
There shall be some good with some bad in 2018. You might be disappointed with your romantic life but you shall pull through, coming out stronger than before. This may not be the year for you to find a long-lasting relationship; however, fret not, you might find love in the least expected place. Do not give up!
6. Virgo (August 23rd To September 22nd)
Virgos will experience real happiness this year. You might think you are not destined for such a fate because you have experienced too much internal turmoil, however, this will change. You will fall in love with your soul mate and forget about the things that bothered you erstwhile.
7. Libra (September 23rd To October 22nd)
You will take things to the next level in 2018. The relationship you are already in shall blossom and you shall be assured that you are with the person you want to grow old with. Both of you shall be really happy for a long time to come.
8. Scorpio (October 23rd To November 22nd)
Despite being averse to the very idea of love and relationships, and festering a hatred for deeper connections, you shall meet someone who will completely blow you away. What you thought of love and romance shall completely change, so you should definitely give love a chance!
9. Sagittarius (November 23rd To December 21st)
In the past year, you have devoted time to a lot of people because they have spent time with you. Having said that, this does not mean they have deep feelings for you. Hence, you are likely to give them up. This is the year where your self-esteem and self-confidence booms and you realise that only by loving yourself will someone have a chance at loving you.
10. Capricorn (December 22nd To January 20th)
You spent the last year with a lot of caution, harbouring patience and reason in all situations. This year, you ought to let yourself go a little and be more open to things. Let yourself experience the latent energy you have for intimacy, but make sure you stay safe.
11. Aquarius (January 21st To February 18th)
You shall meet someone with whom you can have a lot of new experiences as well as fun. Your zest for life will become apparent and you shall enjoy yourself with this person. It might be someone you meet at a regular hangout. Give them a chance but don’t be quick to set expectations. Take things as they come.
12. Pisces (February 19th To March 20th)
2018 shall be the year where you meet someone who truly appreciates you for who you are – sympathetic and good-hearted. The relationship will be full of fun, adventure, empathy, and humour. On the other hand, don’t be quick to jump the gun and be sure of the person you’re going to commit to before doing so.
We hope your year is full of peace, love, and happiness. Don’t think too much about your prediction if it seems a little skewed. It’s just a casual indicator of what might happen. Regardless of what your horoscope says, there’s someone for everyone and you will definitely find your soul mate sooner or later.
