2008 Overview Horoscopes
The following are short overview horoscopes for the year 2008. For our detailed Yearly Horoscopes, see 2008 Yearly Horoscopes, coming soon.
Work figures especially strongly in 2008 for you, dear Aries. Some form of pleasant culmination in your professional life brings rewards and recognition. Still, despite the fact that you’re loving your career this year, you are also working especially hard. The inclination is towards more detail work, and it can get to you at times. You may turn a job into a vocation in 2008, and some work behind the scenes figures. Personal projects are on an upswing. A project begun near the beginning of the year is likely to bear fruit towards the end of 2008. Romance and close personal relationships are not making big headlines for you this year, which could be a good thing, although you should definitely take some solid time off for recreation. All work and no play just isn’t going to fulfill you at the end of the day, even if it is a tendency. As well, becoming more particular about your health and diet is in order. Happier periods for recreation and romance occur in May, June, and August. Stronger times for finances occur in the last week of January and most of April.
Opportunities to travel arise in 2008, and adventure tends to seek you out. Some restlessness is likely, mainly because of a deep feeling of wanderlust. You are more able than ever to see the “big picture” and less inclined to sweat the small stuff. Romantic relationships become more complicated this year. You may be asked to state your intentions or urged to get serious. You don’t like to get backed into a corner, so this can cause some strain. If single, you might establish a serious romance or meet a more mature or older lover. Concerns about children, who may be entering a new stage of development that requires more attention, are likely, if applicable. 2008 is a period in which your belief systems and personal philosophies are especially important to you, and you are more inclined to share them with those younger than you. It’s an excellent year for travel, higher education, communications, and higher learning. Fundamental changes in your domestic situation and career orientation are likely. A strong period for personal influence occurs in the last week of January and first week of February. A strong period for romance and fun occurs in August. Intense activity with a partner (or new partner) occurs in October.
Developing an intimate relationship figures strongly in your 2008 forecast, dear Gemini. Learning to share on financial and intimate levels brings you some measure of joy. Money matters make big headlines. A bigger drive for security is with you this year, and re-organizing your home and domestic life comes into play. Other people’s money may come your way or you might secure some real estate. A partner’s resources could have a significant impact on your home life. Finding joy in developing intimacy is featured, and this is a year in which you develop and enhance your sexuality on a deep level. Work could be moving towards more research and investigation. The work you do could be supported by your spouse’s money or other people’s money in general, such as work in finance. Sponsoring or supporting other people can reap rewards. New or changed responsibilities around the home or towards family also figures this year. Some of you will secure a new home and/or property. Many will enjoy sound returns on their investments. September brings the strongest period for romance and fun to you.
Relationships are moving to a completely new level for you in 2008, dear Cancer. This could be a banner year for connecting with a significant other. Some of you will form a partnership that either leads to marriage or is otherwise significant. Plenty of social activities, particularly with a partner, figure this year. A strong mental connection with a partner is likely, and singles might meet a partner through health and learning avenues. A tendency to over-think, or to focus on serious or even negative issues, should be watched. The skills you are working so hard on this year will be valuable for years to come. Financial changes, in outlook and strategy, continue to figure this year, but the difference in 2008 is that financial pressures ease and money-making endeavors improve dramatically. Work could involve more counseling or collaborating with a partner. Opportunities for fun and romance are particularly strong from mid-June to mid-July and in October.
2008 is certainly an easier year for you than was the case in the second half of 2006 and throughout much of 2007, dear Leo. This year, you find more joy in your daily routines. Although work can be rather hectic at times, you tend to enjoy taking care of all the details. A move towards working out of the home is likely for many of you. If you have been trying to land a dream job, this is more likely to occur now. Romance could be on the serious or practical side in 2008. Avoid over-analyzing your relationships, or treating them more like businesses. Turning a hobby or favorite pastime into a job could also figure. Partnership ups and downs continue to be a theme, as you struggle with matters of freedom and dependency. Sexual experimentation and liberation is also a theme in 2008. Finances are a serious matter for you this year, and you could take pleasure in building your resources and analyzing your cash flow. There is a fine line between financial discipline and worrying excessively about financial details, however.
A beautiful trend with you in 2008 occurs in the “life departments” of romance, creative pursuits, children, and recreation. Virgos are learning to let their hair down and have some serious fun this year! Getting your life completely on track is also a strong theme, but you are able to find a healthy balance between work and play. For some of you, working with a romantic partner could figure. With Saturn in your sign, increased responsibilities are likely. However, you tend to handle Saturn transits better than many signs, and although you could feel some pressure, you are always willing to work all the harder to meet your new responsibilities. Your love life has been erratic for some time, and this trend does continue. However, this year, you are more likely to have fun with it. You could find that you invest in real estate this year, or bring a more playful environment to your home. Speculation, as long as it’s reasonable, may prove worthwhile. Your creativity is stronger than usual this year, and children can figure prominently in your life. The strongest month for money is September 2008.
A total transformation of your personal life is in the works in 2008, dear Libra. Activity on the home front and in your personal life is energetic. You could be making money from home, acquiring new items for the home that involve networking, and devoting much energy to building and maintaining your “nest”. You can expect wonderful support from–and for–your family. Some of you might move to a better home or enhance the one you have. Some will be working from home. Your family could expand in some manner, or you could expand your real estate possessions. You might find that you have less friends now, but good ones. Work matters are strong, although it’s not a year for big headlines in the career department. Romance is changeful. You are becoming considerably more conservative in your outlook towards money, which is a big change from last year. You are looking at the long-term, which is healthy for you now. You have a greater need for privacy and “down time” in general this year, even if you don’t know it! You are learning that a less hectic social schedule is valuable, and you are working on your fear of this. September is an exceptionally busy and prosperous month in 2008 for you.
Communications, learning, and social contact are areas of your life that are undergoing a major transformation in 2008 for you, dear Scorpio. You may increase your money supply through the communications industry this year. In general, you are becoming more conservative with your finances and possessions, and more prudent or cautious in general. At the same time, your ability to communicate and get your message across is enhanced. You are a persuasive person as it is, but you are especially eloquent at expressing your ideas and winning support for them in 2008. Learning, socializing, and networking are big areas of activity this year. Plenty of short trips also figure. Domestic and career activities are going through changes and are areas of your life that are changeful in general in 2008. Opportunities for love tend to be close to home–even in your own neighborhood. Friendship “tests” are likely, in that you will be weeding out superficial ones and valuing the more solid and stable friends in your life. You are more goal-oriented in general this year–your eye is on the prize and you are keeping in mind the long-term effects of everything that you do. October is an exceptionally busy, romantic, and dynamic month for you in 2008, when love, partnership, and work seek you out and find you.
A year-long trend towards greater abundance of personal income is in your forecast, dear Sagittarius. You could never be defined as a materialistic person, but your attention this year is certainly on the more material, physical, and practical areas of your life. At the root of this focus is the desire for increased freedom, and you instinctively feel that taking care of your practical affairs will help you to eventually enjoy more freedom of movement. In 2008, you have especially strong feelings about your career, reputation, income, and possessions. Increased responsibilities in general and in your career figure, and are actually important for your development. While there are no shortcuts or totally lucky breaks in your career this year, you are likely to derive much satisfaction from your achievements that come from your hard work. You are noticed and recognized for your natural talents on the job, and you could be busy re-investing money into your career. Some of you will be making money from esoteric endeavors or through work behind the scenes. Learning and education are areas of your life that undergo the most change. Contentment, rather than changefulness, figures in the love department this year. Love finds you most easily in April and from mid-November to the end of the year.
For you dear Capricorn, the year 2008 is excellent for personal popularity and influence, as well as getting personal initiatives off the ground. For most of you, this is a power year, with more power to you for some years to come. You have special charisma and magnetism this year. Saturn keeps you on the straight and narrow and Jupiter boosts your mood. You tend to be more helpful to others and spiritually inclined now. A healthy perspective on your life helps to keep everyday stresses from getting to you too much. You have a strong interest in broadening your mental experiences, possibly through higher education, travel, exposure to different cultures, or exploring different philosophies of life. Stirring in you is the desire to make radical changes to the manner in which you go after you want in life, although for most of you, these changes will occur in years to come. For now, you might be flirting with the idea of changing your appearance and manner. Money and intimacy are areas of life that are changeful for you this year, and love as well as career are areas that are more status quo. Love finds you more readily in the first half of February and in the first half of May. New friendships are easily formed in 2008.
A more free-spirited and faithful attitude towards life is with you in 2008, dear Aquarius. Your intuition is heightened to possibly even uncanny levels this year. While the year is a contented one on many levels, you enjoy an increasing feeling of hope, optimism, and spiritual protection. You are building your resources, getting your finances straightened out, and learning a great deal about what makes you, and the people around you, tick. In 2008, you are working on perfecting the art of intimate bonding with another person on a deep level. You are also getting a grip on finances, especially those that you share with or that come from others. Life is certainly clearer for you than it was last year. The area of life that is subject to the most changes is your close relationships, or partnerships. Re-evaluating sexual and intimate expression could figure. Your spiritual life is richer and more rewarding than ever. Help is available exactly when you need it. Some of your work is done in seclusion, or you work behind the scenes this year. Love finds you most readily mid-February to mid-March–a power period for your powers of attraction. An especially active period for career matters occurs in October.
Networking and branching out figures strongly and brings you much happiness in 2008! Your business income looks fortunate, and benefits come from friendships and group associations. Life is a little more challenging when it comes to closer personal connections with others, dear Pisces. This is a year when partnerships come under scrutiny, and it may not always be pleasant. In fact, for some of you, this year and next are “make or break” in this area of your life. The poo is likely to hit the fan towards year-end. However, serious attention to the workings of a relationship should help bring out the best of you and a special someone. As well, you could establish a true friendship with a partner (or partner with a friend!) if you play your cards right, and that means giving each other space while also showing your commitment to making things work. Work and health are the areas of life that are likely to undergo the most changes this year. You continue a trend towards more freedom of expression. In the past 4-5 years you have been hell-bent on expressing yourself freely, and this trend continues in 2008. Love finds you more readily the second half of March, mid-June to mid-July, and the first half of August.
