So expect love life improvements in 2018, and potentially also more sex, too! Hot datesFebruary 13 – life looks exciting (and changeable), just pre-Valentines Day.

This year, your love life should start to feel like young love's dream again, comparatively!Hot datesApril 9 – dreamy, good day to meet a soulmate. September 4 – believe you're lovable and you will be loved. December 21 – a day to take a romantic chance.

June through to August will be a good time to sort out issues with your partner or ex. All in all, a big year for relationships, thanks to eclipses in your Love Zone.Hot datesFebruary 16 – eclipse in your love zone – anything could happen! March 6 – looks dreamy.

One thing you really need to remember this year is that if you love yourself, others are more likely to love you too. Saturn's influence in your chart will also affect your own personal self-worth – in other words, how much you value yourself. It's human nature that if we don't value ourselves, others won't either. This is your major lesson for the year ahead. Master it as soon as you can. Overall though, your love life, and your whole life, will be easier in 2018.Hot datesJanuary 21 – set aside some time for love today! May 30 – excellent for talking through love issues. November 23 – perfect for a date night/fun and loving.
