2018 might not feel like the most romantic year of your life, but it will certainly be pivotal in terms of your personal growth and relationship potential. If you start the year in a relationship or married, it's possible that your partner will encounter some frustration connected to his or her income and work situation. As a result, you might even find that you're the breadwinner for most of the year.
Another possibility is that your partner wants to go back to school to pursue an advanced degree or has a dream of starting his or her own business. You'll go to the ends of the earth to support your love, and because of this, you might foot most of the bills during this career transition. Whatever the details, with Saturn working through your 8th House of Shared Resources, there's bound to be some type of deficiency in the amount of contribution that comes from your mate. Don't allow this karmic lesson frustrate to you. Instead, recognize it for what it is: a golden opportunity for you to prove to yourself that even when you're half of a couple, you don't need to rely on anyone else but yourself for the material things in life.
Whether you're single or attached, there might be another implication of Saturn moving through your 8th house this year -- and that implication will affect your sex life. If you're in a relationship, you might not feel as satisfied sexually as you used to with your partner. This will be a good year to consider couple's sex therapy -- especially if you're too uncomfortable to discuss the problems you're having on your own. A good therapist will help you navigate past feelings of shame, guilt, or blame in order to get both you and your lover back to a place of intimacy and mutual fulfillment.
