ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
The innovative planet Uranus spends the first five months of 2018 in Aries, igniting your desire to innovate, renovate, and re-evaluate. Early 2018, combined with the last few months of 2018, will give you a chance to make changes you have been contemplating since Uranus entered Aries in 2011. This is when your individuation process began in earnest. The passage of revolutionary Uranus into Taurus on May 15, 2018 will stabilize the flow of cosmic energy to you and will turn your focus away from self re-definition to more mundane matters, such as your finances and physical comforts. Since 2011, your larger goals have been concentrated on self-discovery and self-expression. Now is the time to ground your big ideas and put your vision into action with practical steps! Uranus will briefly return to Aries from November 6, 2018 to March 6, 2019, giving you a last burst of energy to implement your unorthodox ideas. Material resources will become available for the ideas that will bring you the greatest growth and evolution. Your planetary ruler, Mars, will support your forward progress as it travels through Scorpio, Sagittarius, and Capricorn during the first half of 2018. On June 26, 2018, the fiery planet turns retrograde in Aquarius for several months (from June 26 to August 27, 2018), causing you to apply the brakes and rectify the past. The summer will be a good time to rest and catch up on projects you have started earlier in the year. The passage of lucky Jupiter into the fire sign of Sagittarius from November 8, 2018 to December 2, 2019 will also support your creative expression. This will be a year to experiment, evaluate, and implement those ideas that bring positive results. Eclipses in late January and February 2018, and July and August 2018, will bring new companions into your life.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
Innovative Uranus in Taurus from May 15 to November 6, 2018, and again from March 6, 2019 to April 25, 2026 will help bring positive, needed changes to your life. Uranus is a planet that spins at a right angle to the other planets in the solar system, and along with Venus, spins in the opposite direction from the other planets, which enables it to inspire innovative and creative ideas. Uranus can provoke what seems like a crisis in order to bring about a higher state of evolution. President John F. Kennedy said, “When written in Chinese, the word ‘crisis’ is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity.” Uranus will bring many opportunities to find value in your life in new and interesting ways in the coming years. Stay open-minded so you may discover all of the opportunities coming to you. Saturn in the compatible earth sign of Capricorn from December 19, 2017 to December 16, 2020 will help you stabilize your new ideas so you may create a firm foundation for the next chapter of your life. Eclipses in late January and February, and again in July and August 2018 will bring new career opportunities and possibilities for reconfiguring your living situation. Lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius beginning on November 8, 2018 will help you draw on a wealth of deep resources within yourself. When loving Venus, your planetary ruler, turns retrograde from October 5 to November 16, 2018, you will draw support from people you have known in the past. New influences will enter your life beginning in December 2018.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 21)
Communicative Mercury, your planetary ruler, turns retrograde for 3 weeks, 3 times in 2018. These 3-week periods are important times for you to review the past, rectify any missteps, and make course corrections. Mercury will retrograde in the fire sign of Aries from March 22 to April 15, 2018. This will be a time to contact old friends and make sure there are no misunderstandings. Mercury will retrograde again in the fire sign of Leo from July 25 to August 18, 2018. This will be a time to make peace with your neighbors and siblings or cousins. Communications could be tangled and short trips delayed under the influence of this Mercury retrograde. But all will be rectified by late summer. Mercury retrogrades once more in 2018, from November 16 to December 6, 2018, in the fire sign of Sagittarius and the water sign of Scorpio. This will be a time to rectify terms of long-standing contracts to make sure everyone is getting what they need. Don’t necessarily make assumptions about how others think or feel. The retrograde is a great time to ask questions and listen for answers. You will glean much useful information! Eclipses in late January and February, and July and August 2018, will bring you philosophical and spiritual insights that will help shape your attitudes on important subjects. Lucky Jupiter enters the optimistic sign of Sagittarius on November 8, 2018. This celestial transit will bring you positive outcomes in spiritual endeavors, travel, and adventurous relationships!

CANCER (June 22 – July 22)
Eclipses in late January and February, and July and August 2018, will bring you a new awareness about how much time to devote to people and activities in your environment. Despite your love of routine, cosmic energies may direct you to experiment with new regimens and schedules. You also are opening up to unique people who will help you access your abundant creativity. You tend to channel your creative energy into your home and domestic surroundings. You will continue to tend to hearth and home, but you also will have an opportunity to expand your offerings as a gift to a greater number of people. You have a nurturing, loving presence that others will be open to experience in the coming year. Lucky Jupiter in the compatible water sign of Scorpio until November 8, 2018 will bring you good fortune when you take moderate risks to give of yourself through self-expression or helpful actions. Uranus in Taurus from May 15 to November 6, 2018, and again from March 6, 2019 to April 25, 2026, will help you connect with like-minded others who will share your sensibilities, sensitivities, and values. Mars retrograde from June 26 to August 27, 2018 will temporarily bring people from your past back into your life. You will have a chance to resolve outstanding issues. Karmic Saturn in your opposing sign of Capricorn from December 19, 2017 to December 16, 2020 will focus your energy on building up your significant one-to-one relationships. It will be important to create peace and harmony with the people you are close to. You will be cultivating the relationships that are stable parts of the garden of souls around you.

LEO (July 23 – August 22)
A total lunar eclipse in Leo on January 31, 2018 will temporarily give the people around you a chance to express themselves more than usual. Temporarily, you will not be in the driver’s seat until a partial solar eclipse on February 15, 2018 opens the door to more typical and balanced interpersonal dynamics. A partial solar eclipse on July12, 2018 will stir a subconscious memory and a total lunar eclipse on July 27, 2018 will restore your sense of confidence and natural poise. A partial solar eclipse in Leo on August 11, 2018 will temporarily disrupt your status quo. You life will return to its normal cadence by the end of September 2018, but the new energetic influences will have made an indelible imprint that will positively alter the course of your life. Make peace with new opportunities. And let go of opportunities that you have anticipated but have not materialized. Lucky Jupiter in Scorpio until November 8, 2018 will challenge you to refine domestic plans. Jupiter in the compatible fire sign of Sagittarius from November 8, 2018 to December 2, 2019 will enable to easily express your warmth and enthusiasm to the people you care about. Karmic Saturn in Capricorn will help you refine outstanding plans until 2020 (it also is an important time to try to make plans!). And innovative Uranus in Taurus from May 15 to November 6, 2018, and again from March 6, 2019 to April 25, 2026 will help you further refine your strategy so your actions reflect the highest expression of your soul.

VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
A collection of planets in the compatible earth signs of Capricorn and Taurus will enhance your life journey in 2018 and support you to fulfill your goals. Karmic Saturn and determined Pluto, both in the compatible earth sign of Capricorn will enable you to focus on long-term strategies and put the pieces in place for a stable foundation. Your efforts in 2018 will set the stage for a successful future. Innovative Uranus also enters the compatible earth sign of Taurus on May 15, 2018, paving the way for you to introduce new ideas into your work and personal life. Communicative Mercury turns retrograde for 3 weeks, 3 times in 2018. These will be times when you may efficiently refine plans from the past. You also may run into delays during the Mercury retrograde periods if your plans are not aligned with your highest good. When you make necessary refinements, you will make much forward progress. Mercury retrogrades from March 22 to April 15, 2018, July 25 to August 18, 2018, and November 16 to December 6, 2018. A total lunar eclipse on January 31, 2018 will give you vivid dreams that will provide a hint about a future course of action. A partial solar eclipse on February 15, 2018 will help you refine a work routine. A partial solar eclipse on July 12, 2018 will temporarily keep you apart from a friend you would like to see, while a total lunar eclipse on July 27, 2018 will strengthen your intuition. A partial solar eclipse on August 11, 2018 will confirm a premonition you have been sensing. Use moments of quiet and solitude to introspect and listen to intuitive guidance for best results in 2018.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 23)
Innovative Uranus in your opposing sign of Aries until May 15, 2018 will bring creative and inspiring people into your life during the first half of 2018. When loving Venus, your planetary ruler, turns retrograde in Scorpio and Libra from October 5 to November 16, 2018, you will have an opportunity to re-examine these relationships to discern whether they are truly bringing balance and harmony (or stress) to your life. During this period, you may see the “shadow” side of a relationship, which may cause you to re-balance in a new way. You may choose greater authenticity or diminished involvement, depending upon your evaluation of the chances for healthy interchange. While you are good at deferring to others, this will be a time to discern whether the costs of burying your needs are worth the value of relationship interactions. You have a fair and equitable way of assessing situations, so trust your impressions and intuition. You are getting ready to make a firm commitment to a new position. Lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius from November 8, 2018 to December 2, 2019 will bring new people to you with whom you may discuss ideas and activities that are of interest to you. Decide which topics you would like to explore so you are not derailed from your mission and seek like-minded others to support you. Eclipses in late January and February, and July and August 2018, will give you an opportunity to interact with groups of people with whom you can collaborate to bring greater ease to your daily life.

SCORPIO (October 24 – November 21)
Lucky Jupiter in Scorpio from October 10, 2017 to November 8, 2018 will support your positive aspirations for self-healing and self-expression. You are not one to skim the surface. And this celestial influence will help you penetrate to the depths of complex situations. Mars in Scorpio from December 9, 2017 to January 26, 2018 will heighten your ability to unearth buried information and uncover hidden resources. Something that has been concealed will come to light—and with your skillful sleuthing, you may be the messenger of important revelations. Innovative Uranus also will move into your opposite sign of Taurus on May 15, 2018, when you will discover even more illuminating information. You may stumble upon these details through a close friend or associate. This information could present a major turning point in your life. You also will be in the spotlight under the influence of a series of eclipses in late January and February, and again in July and August 2018. Venus retrograde in Scorpio and Libra from October 5 – November 16, 2018 will awaken your interest in a person you have known in the past. You will briefly experience clear communications with this person after Venus resumes direct motion on November 16, 2018. Mercury, planet of communications, will begin its retrograde motion later in the day on November 16, 2018, which will help you re-visit and rectify past communications. Communicative Mercury resumes direct motion in Scorpio on December 6, 2018, when all will fall nicely into place for you.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
You may feel a bit like a detective under the influence of lucky Jupiter, your planetary ruler, in the depth-seeking sign of Scorpio from October 10, 2017 to November 8, 2018. This will be a year to discover hidden truths and buried treasure in the form of crucial information. Under this influence, you may have trouble tolerating aimless activity or small talk. So, focus on your most important goals, commit the necessary resources, and allow yourself to intensely immerse yourself in the object of your ambitions. Once lucky Jupiter moves into Sagittarius (November 8, 2018 to December 2, 2019), you will feel like your old jovial, carefree self. Until then, you will feel as if you have serious work to accomplish—and you do. Just make sure you don’t neglect the big picture and lose the forest in the trees. The “big picture” is whatever you feel is your larger goal, the reason you are expending your energy in the first place. Saturn in Capricorn in 2018 will help you focus on your finances so you may properly allocate resources to endeavors that are important to you. An alignment of your planetary ruler, Jupiter, with dreamy Neptune on May 25 and August 19, 2018 will heighten your intuition and give you an important insight. Eclipses in late January and February, and July and August 2018 will awaken a spiritual desire.

CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
Saturn, your planetary ruler, will be in Capricorn during 2018 and will help you make decisions that will define the next 7 years of your life. This is a time to think about building solid foundations for your home, work, and family. Important decisions made during this year will bring positive results when you support your decisions with proper research and hard work. Get the facts and apply your abundant willpower and determination. You will succeed in those endeavors to which you commit your greatest attention. Saturn will give you many opportunities to ameliorate your life as it remains in Capricorn until December 16, 2020. Energizing Mars also will help you meet your goals while it traverses Capricorn from March 17 to May 15, 2018, and again from August 12 to September 10, 2018. Lucky Jupiter in Scorpio until November 8, 2018 will help you implement your clear vision when you think strategically. Eclipses in late January and February, and July and August 2018, will bring you new information about your finances. You will be able to build your financial reserves from mid-September to mid-November. Innovative Uranus in the compatible earth sign of Taurus in 2018 will help you find creative solutions to unanticipated situations that may arise. Hidden resources are available.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
A total lunar eclipse on January 31, 2018 will bring you greater awareness about the way you express yourself. Experiment with new modes of conveying your thoughts and feelings when a partial solar eclipse on February 15, 2018 brings new feelings and sensations to your awareness. Take care of yourself by surrounding yourself with supportive friends who will listen to your thoughts and feelings. You also will benefit from nourishing foods during your birthday season. Energizing Mars will spend 5 months in Aquarius in 2018. The fiery planet will be in the sign of brotherly love from May 15 to August 12, 2018, and from September 10 to November 15, 2018. This is a time when you will have the power to accomplish outstanding goals. But also note that your anger may flair a little more quickly than normal due to frustrations caused by Mars retrograde in Aquarius from June 26 to August 12, 2018. A potent angle formed in the sky between Mars and innovative Uranus, your planetary ruler, on May 16 and September 18, 2018, could unintentionally cause sparks to fly. A partial solar eclipse in Cancer on July 12, 2018 will help you refine your dietary regimen. A total lunar eclipse in Aquarius on July 27, 2018 will help you bring greater balance to an important relationship. A partial solar eclipse in Leo on August 11, 2018 will help you see your relationships in a new light. Lucky Jupiter in Scorpio until November 8, 2018 will support your career and efforts to bring your positive ideas into the world. Jupiter in Sagittarius from November 8, 2018 to December 2, 2019 will help you make positive connections with friends. While your social inclinations are generally strong, you will derive great benefits from short periods of solitude under the influence of karmic Saturn in Capricorn during 2018.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
Eclipses in late January and February, and July and August 2018, will make you aware of details you may have overlooked in the past. Trust your intuition to guide you to the places you must look to discover these forgotten missives. You also will feel more intuitive than usual under the positive influence of a celestial angle that forms in the sky between lucky Jupiter in Scorpio and spiritual Neptune in Pisces on May 25 and August 19, 2018. With Neptune, your planetary ruler, in Pisces until 2026, you will feel best when you allow the wisdom contained in your higher self to guide you. Lucky Jupiter in the compatible water sign of Scorpio until November 8, 2018 will bring you good fortune when you travel or engage in spiritual study. Jupiter in the fire sign of Sagittarius from November 8, 2018 to December 2, 2019 will lead you toward your true destiny. Uranus in Taurus from May 15 to November 6, 2018 and again from March 6, 2019 to April 25, 2026 will expose you to new angles of firmly-held assumptions. You will question your customary view of reality. This celestial transit also may expose you to some people with fairly entrenched ideas, who are unwilling to open their minds or consider an alternate viewpoint. Your job will be to kindly convey new insights in a way that even the most stubborn adherent of outmoded thinking will hear.

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents.

Order it at GodIsLogical.com.

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?


Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.
