2019 should bring many opportunities for positive world change. The year begins with an early Solar Eclipse in Capricorn, indicating that the time for dreaming is over: action is now needed. Venus conjuncts Jupiter in late January, shortly before a spiritual Saturn-Neptune trine – these influences help to birth a spirit of generosity which will shape the months ahead. There will be some resistance, notably in mid-February when volatile Mars conjuncts Uranus in a warrior mood, so we can’t expect voices of reason to triumph without a struggle. In March, however, Uranus settles down into Taurus, having briefly visited in 2018 – this energy brings upheaval in the finance sector but also potential progress in tackling environmental concerns and inequalities.
Benevolent Jupiter’s energies are confused and mis-directed at times when this giant planet squares up with Neptune – there are pockets of this in January, June and September, possibly causing denial or misguided efforts which hinder rather than help. A Solar Eclipse in nurturing Cancer in early July however highlights efforts to do good and offers support to those pushing for positive change – although again, resistance comes in the form of a Mars-Uranus squares in July.
November is a key month for consolidating positive progress, with another beautifully spiritual Saturn-Neptune sextile and another Venus-Jupiter conjunction. Generous Jupiter arrives in practical Capricorn in early December – fittingly for the holiday season, that will be the ideal time to turn idealistic dreams into realities.
Aries (March 20th - April 19th)
With your ruling planet, Mars, entering your own sign on New Year’s Eve, you could hardly wish for a more positive and energetic start to 2019. You’re starting the year in an adventurous mood, keen to see what new horizons you can find, and this pioneering spirit will remain in place throughout the year. Take every opportunity to say yes to possibilities, even where this scares you. Be open to new learning too, whether that’s a return to school, a work-based training course or a new qualification you undertake just for personal satisfaction.
Early spring in the Northern Hemisphere brings some volatile emotions to the fore, particularly as Mars conjuncts Uranus in your sign on February 13th. A lack of self-control or an inability to process your own anger could land you in trouble around that time. When Chiron moves into Aries in late February great healing becomes possible, but the process itself could well be painful. Surround yourself with those you trust and don’t be afraid to let your emotions show.
During the summer and fall, love and career issues are dominant, but the Aries Full Moon in mid-October is also a chance to review how far you’ve come in terms of personal and spiritual growth. When Jupiter conjuncts Venus in your adventure zone at the end of November, you’ll understand the journey you’ve been on this year, and strange coincidences may well start to make more sense.
April would be a marvelous month for a romantic getaway – the New Moon in early April is in your own sign, boosting your confidence and helping you to show your emotions to someone you love. Later that month, Venus arrives in Aries, so the time is right for either meeting someone new or for consolidating and strengthening an existing relationship. The emphasis here is on sweet and quite traditional romance, so take your time – slow the pace down and savor each moment with your sweetheart.
The temperature hots up considerably in July when first Mars and then Venus move into your passion zone – any new romance formed at this time is certainly going to be memorable! In an existing relationship, this is your chance to rekindle the spark, to flirt and to remember why and how you got together in the first place. Recreate your honeymoon period and prioritize one another above all else.
Come fall in the northern hemisphere, Venus transits into your love and marriage zone, followed a few weeks later by Mars. This makes September and October excellent months for a wedding or for making a serious commitment to a lover. Watch out for ego battles in October, however. Mars rules passion but he also rules anger and there is a fine line between the two. If you do find yourself bickering with your sweetheart constantly, get back to basics and re-commit to your lives together. Everyone has disagreements – it’s how you handle them which makes the difference between a good or a poor relationship.
Greater success and a higher income have always been a part of your ambitions, but early this year something else creeps in too: a need for your work to be creative, beautiful, meaningful or preferably all three. You’ll get the first sense of this in late January when task-master Saturn sextiles spiritual Neptune and asks you to be sure that your work is making a difference somehow. Gentle, caring Venus shifting into your career zone in early February reinforces the same message.
Once Uranus, the planet of surprises, settles into your money zone in early March, your finances become more volatile – but this energy is a good match for your pioneering spirit, and you’ll quite enjoy the challenge. Find new income streams from among your under-used skills or take a leap of faith and change career path altogether, even if that involves a pay cut. During July, financial risks could be painful - Mars squares up to Uranus, pitting your risk zone against your money zone, and not in a good way – but you can weather this storm.
Eventually, any financial sacrifices you have had to make will start to pay off and the pressure will ease. Bountiful Jupiter, planet of good fortune and generosity, makes a very welcome shift into your career zone early in December, so you can expect to see rewards coming your way. A stunning Jupiter-Uranus trine also brings shocks – good ones – your way in mid-December when it activates both your career zone and your money zone. Just in time for some festive spending!
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
2019’s energies are about rediscovering how to put yourself first. This may involve cutting back on your commitments to others and being a little more selfish than you would like. Early indications come around mid-February, when a tense and volatile Mars-Uranus conjunction in your spiritual zone brings about a crisis of faith. Three squares between generous Jupiter and deceitful Neptune – one in January, one in June and one in September – highlight situations where you have given and given but neither your resources nor your time have been appreciated or returned to you. No surprise then that when warrior planet Mars enters Taurus in February, he urges you to look after your own interests
Some of those taking advantage of you may be family. A Lunar Eclipse in late January may bring this to a head and when Mercury turns retrograde in July, these matters will have to be faced. Fortunately, Uranus will settle in Taurus in early March, bringing you the power to re-invent yourself and to choose your own path through these difficulties. This is tremendously positive energy and allows you to surprise others, as well as yourself. An empowering New Moon in your sign in early May is a further boost to your positivity.
The northern hemisphere’s mid-winter is – finally – your time. When bountiful Jupiter arrives in your expansion zone in early December, you’ll find yourself free to travel, to learn and to grow in the way you would wish. A beautiful Jupiter-Uranus trine in mid-December brings you exciting opportunities in this area – this will be your chance to gain perspective, freedom and faith all at once. It’s worth waiting for!
Jealousy seems to be an issue as 2019 begins, but a conjunction between loving Venus and generous-minded Jupiter occurs in late January, helping you to forgive and forget where appropriate. Passionate Mars arrives in your sign on Valentine’s Day – good timing! The northern spring should turn out to be a loved-up period for you if you’re already in a relationship. If you’re single, late February and early March are ideal dating times, but be careful not to be too pushy.
Romance gets a big boost in May, when Venus arrives in Taurus – this is a time for kittens and rainbows and poetry, all sweet-nothings and intimate looks. Watch out for a major communications mix-up between you and your lover in July, however, when Mars squares up to Uranus and one or both of you leaps to the wrong conclusion. For single Taureans, late August looks set to be highly memorable, with both Venus and Mars arriving in your dating zone within days of one another. Any relationship which starts at that time is likely to be passionate and deep, albeit not necessarily long-lasting.
On November 11th, a rare transit of Mercury across the visible face of the Sun occurs while Mercury is retrograde in your love zone. Although of more astronomical than astrological significance, this event is rich in symbolism – don’t allow tiny niggles to obscure the big things in your relationship. Remember why you are together and keep talking, no matter what.
Your working life appears quite stable in 2019, with few major astrological indicators of change. The arrival of Uranus into Taurus in March does shake up your attitudes, but this is more likely to be a change of your approach at work rather than a change of work itself. Early in March, Venus shifts into your career zone, so you may want to make your working conditions more comfortable. At the end of March, ambitious Mars enters your money zone, so we can expect to see you hustling hard this northern spring, seeking a better salary or ways to otherwise expand your income.
Teamwork seems to be important in the northern fall so work on improving your relationships with your co-workers around that time. When Venus shifts into your everyday work zone in September, you’ll find it easier to tolerate the more “interesting” characters at work. It may be a different story in October, however, when argumentative Mars enters this same zone. If you’re tired of covering for someone or fed up with being expected to take on extra responsibilities for no extra recognition, October is the time to speak up.
Jupiter’s arrival in your expansion zone in December is a key time to ask for extra training or to undertake new study to improve your career. There are indications that 2020 has huge potential for you – so skill up now in order to take full advantage of what the next year may bring.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
2019’s energies support introspection and reflection for your sign, Gemini. This is a good year for taking stock of where you are. Spiritual and philosophical vibes swirl around you throughout the year, allowing for much spiritual and personal growth – however, these vibes can be quite vague, so it will be easy for you to lose your way at times. In January, June and September, optimistic Jupiter squares up to nebulous Neptune, and these are periods when you may be especially vulnerable to denial, overly idealistic or have self-blame.
When rebellious Uranus arrives in your spiritual zone in early March, you’ll feel the need to question your long-held beliefs and values. Driven by a strong humanitarian urge, you’ll want to do good in society – but there’s a strong sense of privacy here too, so you’ll be happier working behind the scenes or donating anonymously to good causes rather than being seen to be philanthropic. A New Moon in your own sign in early June is a good time to re-set your image and to re-define your boundaries. Make it clear to those around you what you will and will not tolerate.
When Mars squares up to Uranus in July, problems with your privacy may come to a head. Be very careful with social media at these times, as what you say can easily be twisted against you. Once Jupiter arrives in your psychology zone in December, you’ll start to feel more optimistic and back in control again.
Loving Venus arrives in your romance zone in early January, so 2019 gets off to a positive start for an established relationship. The first quarter of the year is the best time for a wedding or an engagement. If you’re single and looking for love, January 22nd is a stand-out day, blessed with a beautiful Venus-Jupiter conjunction in your love zone – watch out for a lucky coincidence which could bring you into contact with someone very special.
Mars arrives in Gemini at the end of March. This boosts your confidence for sure but can also make you come across as slightly aggressive – if you’re dating at this time, try not to appear too scary or full on! Venus shifts into your sign in June, softening your image once more and enabling you to show off the very best of your lively, funny, sociable self.
The Northern Hemisphere’s Fall is an exciting season for you this year, with both Venus and Mars arriving in your dating and passion zone. Relationships will pick up pace and fabulous memories can be made. As the end of the year approaches, Venus eventually makes her way back into your romance zone, so any relationship which starts with a bang in the previous months may well settle down to something more sustainable then. Overall, the year offers many pleasant and romantic interludes, but do watch out for rose tinted glasses in January, June and September – you may be reading too much into someone else’s signals at these times.
During 2019 your work focus shifts slightly: this year, you’ll want to make more money and you’ll be less concerned than normal with job satisfaction. So long as your finances improve, you’re willing to work extra hard or to pursue a path which doesn’t really interest you. In other words, you’re willing to pay a higher price than normal for a healthy bank balance. Fortunately, the planets line up to assist you with this. Late January, June and November are periods when your inner strength and determination drives you forwards, regardless of circumstances.
Watch out for some issues in March, when Mercury turns retrograde in your career zone. At this point you may struggle to make your voice heard, or you may find yourself being passed over. Help is at hand later in March when Venus shifts into your career zone – this is the time to turn on the charm and to use your considerable interpersonal skills to keep yourself in the game.
In May, ambitious Mars charges into your money zone, bringing you both the drive and the opportunity to increase your income. There is still a lack of focus on your actual career path – perhaps you’ll enjoy setting up a side hustle at this time or experimenting with freelancing outside of work. Expect a small financial shock in early July when a Solar Eclipse occurs in your money zone, but otherwise the year looks to be full of financial abundance, even if the way you earn the money doesn’t fill you with excitement.
Cancer (June 21st - July 21st)
If there is a key lesson to learn in 2019, it’s to not to be too rigid in your expectations – of others, but critically of yourself too. There are several surprises in store across different aspects of your life, so it’s important that you are open to change and willing to embrace new ways of being. The first quarter of the year may feel a little bit unsettling, especially once rebel planet Uranus hunkers down into your objectives zone in early March – don’t be surprised if you suddenly feel that you’ve been heading in the wrong direction. There’s nothing wrong with changing your path. It’s never too late.
Mercury turns retrograde in your psychology zone in March, which again is an influence which prompts you to question and second guess yourself. The key here is to use this as a positive opportunity for therapy and acceptance, rather than to punish yourself for what you see as your past mistakes. The Northern Hemisphere’s Spring is the ideal time to pay attention to your dreams, your higher consciousness and your gut instincts.
This first half of the year is a period of rediscovery and adjustment, as you shift from where you thought you were headed onto a new trajectory. Once Mars arrives in your sign in mid-May, you’ll start to feel more in control of the situation and ready to move ahead with confidence. A Solar Eclipse in your sign in early July is the icing on the cake: from this point on, you will feel like a new person altogether.
2019 brings an intense start for your love life. A Solar Eclipse in your love zone right at the beginning of the year highlights a potential make or break situation. You’ve known this was coming for some time. How you deal with it depends on what you want from your current relationship, but a beautiful Venus-Jupiter conjunction later in January suggests that reconciliation and healing are yours for the taking. Indeed, this rocky blip could serve to make your relationship stronger and better, especially once gentle Venus slips into your love zone in early February.
Having spent the northern spring consolidating what you have together, you’ll appreciate an injection of magic in mid-May, when a Full Moon in your passion zone sets your partnership alight. If you’re single, July seems a significant month. Venus shifts into your own sign at the beginning of the month, and a potent Lunar Eclipse in your romance zone in mid-July could mark the beginning of something very interesting indeed.
However long you’ve been together, November may bring some tricky moments for you and your sweetheart. Argumentative Mars stirs up your passion zone and with Mercury retrograde in this zone throughout the month, it’s not so easy to talk your way through a crisis. However: hang on in there. Warm-hearted, generous Jupiter moves into your romance zone in early December, bringing new love if you are single or a huge upswing in love and optimism in an existing relationship.
It’s clear that you mean business from the get-go: ambitious Mars shows up in your career zone on New Year’s Eve. However, a Lunar Eclipse in your money zone in late January suggests that your income may take a hit. A series of difficult squares between Jupiter and Neptune, in January, June and September highlight disillusionment at work and an emotional over-reaction to events in your career. Couple this with an explosive Mars-Uranus conjunction in your career zone in mid-February and it’s clear that the first few months of 2019 will bring unexpected developments in how you earn your living.
Keep breathing. Although these events may be a shock, you are not powerless. A hugely positive New Moon in your career zone in early April helps you to make plans. Once sociable Venus moves into your career zone in April, you will be well placed to make an excellent impression at job interviews or with promotion opportunities – things will start to look up quickly at this point.
The Northern Hemisphere’s Summer is a high point in your recovery, both Venus and Mars transiting your money zone, getting your income back on track. Mercury turns retrograde in your income zone during July, but this is just a warning not to overlook the details in your financial dealings. An optimistic New Moon in your money zone at the beginning of August is the perfect time to launch a new venture. When the Full Moon shines from your career zone, in October, you’ll not only have weathered a storm but created something brand new and impressive.
Leo (July 22nd - August 21st)
Your head is filled with major plans for 2019, but in order to achieve any of your ambitions, you need to be fit and healthy and well. As the year gets underway, your health is a major focus – a Solar Eclipse in your health zone on January 5th may bring an unpleasant shock in this regard. However, consider this a blessing in disguise – it may be the wake-up call you need to take much better care of yourself during the coming year. Once bountiful Jupiter moves into your health zone in early December, your efforts of 2019 will start to pay off and you will see a noticeable improvement in your health and wellbeing. Start positive habits early and don’t give up on them!
Your personal spirituality and philosophy is undergoing change this year too. Around mid-February you may find your beliefs challenged during an intense Mars-Uranus conjunction in your philosophy zone. A few months later, in early July, a Solar Eclipse in your spirituality zone prompts you to re-evaluate what you believe, or to start down a fresh path of investigation and belief. Keep learning and don’t be afraid to change your mind.
Watch out for a connection to your family history in November when Mercury turns retrograde in your family zone. There are some fascinating secrets to be uncovered here, which will give you a deeper sense of who you truly are and an exceptional understanding of your roots.
2019 gets underway with some interesting cosmic vibes for single Leos and those looking for love. A very fortuitous conjunction between loving Venus and lucky Jupiter in late January suggests that a chance meeting could awaken some very intense passions – definitely a great time for dating! In fact, Venus transits your dating zone from early January to early February, so this is an excellent time for catching someone’s eye.
Established relationships are off to a good start too. A lovely New Moon in your romance zone in early February is a good time for a wedding or engagement, and Venus shifts into this zone in early March, promising loving memories and magical moments.
The northern hemisphere’s summer months, however, could be a rather tenser affair. In June and September, difficult squares between Jupiter and Neptune highlight suspicious minds. Even if there is nothing to hide, mistrust and jealousy could plague a relationship, and you will need to be careful not to allow a poisonous atmosphere to develop. A Full Moon in your passion zone in June may mark a difficult decision, and once Mars arrives in your own sign in early July, your argumentative nature may make compromise difficult. Hang on in there and keep talking: a Full Moon in your love zone in mid-August will help to heal and reconcile. Focus on what is good about your relationship, instead of finding reasons to be dissatisfied.
Financial abundance surrounds you in early 2019, especially close to the Full Moon in your money zone in February. However, you may start wondering if this is really all there is to life. As the year wears on, your quest to find meaning in your work and career will become more important to you than how much you earn, and this could lead to some surprising choices on your part.
Uranus, the rebel planet, settles into your career zone in early March. Between then and the New Moon in early May, don’t be surprised if you find yourself toying with radical career change ideas, or starting to develop a business idea which is itching to be launched. Expect to battle yourself internally, as you weigh up risk against security, satisfaction against money and family responsibilities against personal freedom. In July, a tricky square between Mars and Uranus may pit what you want to do against what you feel you ought to do, with very tense results.
The good news is that later in the year this struggle will become easier. With care and imagination, you should be able to find a way forwards with your career which will bring you both enjoyment and a secure financial future. Mid-December is a likely high spot for this, courtesy of a magical Jupiter-Uranus trine. The post-festive period is also significant, as a Solar Eclipse on December 26th activates surprises and changes of heart in your everyday work zone. Keep moving forwards and make it work!
Virgo (August 22nd - September 21st)
For you, Virgo, 2019 will be defined by your learning to both expand your horizons and live within your boundaries. Sounds contradictory? Surprisingly not. By coming to terms with your abilities and your inherent gifts, you’ll be able to use those talents better to expand your world, instead of chasing after castles in the air. Expect this process to get underway in late January when a Lunar Eclipse prompts you to examine how you can best be of service to the world. Answers come thick and fast, notably during the Full Moon in your own sign in late February – this is when you will realize how much you have to offer.
Rebel planet Uranus takes up residence in your travel and philosophy zone in early March, so itchy feet are sure to be a key feature of spring 2019. As well as physical travel, you’ll want to expand your mind, so take up new educational opportunities in the areas you’ve identified as being your strongest potential. All this activity is leading towards a brand-new personal project or ambition, which will clarify in late August when there is a New Moon in Virgo – New Moon, New You.
Along the way, watch out for some friction between your family and your in-laws, especially in January, June and September, when difficult squares between Jupiter and Neptune make it hard to tell who is on whose side. Having said that, wonderful family news may arrive in late January, courtesy of a conjunction between loving Venus and expansive Jupiter: perhaps the pitter patter of new human or animal feet is heading your way!
The emphasis in 2019 is on rekindling the spark in an existing relationship – or finding a brand new and intensely exciting one! A Solar Eclipse in your passion zone in the first week of the year sets the tone. You’ll want to find what you’re missing, whether that’s with your current partner or someone else.
If an existing relationship is struggling, March could be a make or break time. A New Moon in early March falls in your love zone, which could suggest a new beginning in your relationship…or a clean break. Mercury is retrograde in your love zone during March, so do make sure that you communicate clearly and from the heart. Any wounds which need healing will feel much soothed once Venus shifts into your love zone at the end of March.
The other major shakeup in your love life comes in December, when Jupiter shifts into your dating zone. Jupiter’s energy is generous, warm and optimistic, so this year’s festive and party season looks ideal for finding a new partner if you’re looking. If you’re happy within your current relationship, look to mid-December’s exciting Jupiter-Uranus trine for intriguing possibilities which connect love with travel. Another Solar Eclipse in your passion zone at the end of December promises that a heart-driven risk will pay off, so don’t be afraid to take a chance. You have everything to play for in affairs of the heart, and it’s all to gain.
As 2019 gets underway, there are indications of some tension between you and work colleagues, especially if you have felt overlooked or under-valued recently. Try not to take it personally; if you can hang on in there until early March, diplomatic Venus shifts into this zone of your chart and should ease working relationships considerably.
The period from late March to late April is significant for your income, with two consecutive Full Moons in your money zone. This is a rare opportunity for you to get a grip on your finances, sorting out your future security and ensuring that your financial health gets a check-up. This astrological vibe also bodes well for investments and for the first fruits from a new business of any kind. Energetic and ambitious Mars arrives in your career zone in late March, so this too contributes plenty of zest and enthusiasm to your money-making efforts.
If you’re hoping to change jobs in 2019 the period between June and mid-August is a good time to job-hunt or to attend interviews. A New Moon in your career zone in early June is very beneficial, as is the arrival of Mars in your own sign in mid-August – it’s time to stand up and get what you deserve. Mars helps to round off the year on a positive note too, when it shifts from your own sign into your finance zone in early October, giving your bank balance another helpful boost.
Libra (September 22nd - October 22nd)
During 2019, your image – and what other people think of you – will be very important to you; perhaps a little too important. From the very beginning of the year, following a Solar Eclipse in early January, your family may be at loggerheads over a decision you make. Be fair but firm in your family leadership. You’re acting for the right reasons, and other family members will simply have to get on board. Following a Lunar Eclipse in late January, you may find that friends and wider society try to weigh in on your choices too, but again, it’s what you think which really counts.
The northern hemisphere’s spring brings two consecutive Full Moons in Libra, towards the end of March and again at the end of April. You’re re-assessing who you are and how you want to project yourself, and that’s a very positive thing. Don’t be surprised, however, if others feel threatened by your new-found confidence and your individuality. It might not be until late September, when there is a New Moon in Libra, that the fuss dies down – don’t take it too personally.
The northern Winter brings a resolution to the ongoing family-related rumbles – once Jupiter breezes into your family zone in early December, peace will reign. In mid-December, a delightful Jupiter-Uranus trine helps to bring the family together in a big way, healing any past issues and bringing love and laughter in its wake. Although it won’t have been an altogether easy year for family relationships, another Solar Eclipse in late December promises a much easier way forward in 2020.
Your love life in 2019 looks set to be something of a roller-coaster ride, but as your confidence elsewhere you’ll be dictating the ride on your own terms. A very flirtatious phase in late April comes courtesy of the arrival of Venus in your dating zone. However, this comes against the backdrop of a very volatile Mars-Uranus conjunction in your love zone in February, which could have explosive repercussions. If you play with fire, be prepared to get burnt. Once shock-jock planet Uranus settles into your intimacy zone in early March, too many dangerous liaisons and too much jealousy could prove toxic for a relationship.
If you want to restore peace to an existing relationship, early April is your best shot, with a New Moon occurring in your love zone, enabling a new start if both parties genuinely want it. If you’re single, on the other hand, early April could be when the exotic encounters of early spring settle down into something more reliable. Any relationship which forms around this time will go through a meaningful phase during mid-October, when the Full Moon in your love zone brings something to fruition.
Elsewhere in the northern hemisphere’s fall, Venus and Mars both shift into Libra between mid-September and early October. Prompted to re-examine what you want from a loving relationship, you’ll start to demand the respect you deserve. From this point onwards, you’re in charge. It’s up to you now to either cement what you have or to strike out in favor of something – and someone – new.
Times are changing at work and by the time the northern hemisphere’s spring arrives you may well find yourself in an entirely new working environment. Even if you haven’t changed jobs, your responsibilities terms of employment may have changed, or new colleagues are on the scene. This is something of a challenge, especially once unpredictable Uranus arrives in your secrets zone in early March. Difficult squares between Jupiter and Neptune hint at a communications breakdown at work in January, June and September, and in March especially, with Mercury retrograde in your work zone, you may struggle to get along with your work-mates.
A very promising Full Moon in mid-May occurs in your money zone, however, so financial gain is on the way. If you can stick out the difficult transition period, things will settle down. Watch out for a Solar Eclipse in your career zone in early July – there could be a surprise in store. This may come as a shock at the time, but it will be to your benefit in the long run.
The northern hemisphere’s fall looks set to be a rewarding time at work. Luxury-loving Venus shifts into your money zone in early October, helping you to spend any raise almost as fast as it arrives. Fortunately, a New Moon later in October falls in your money zone too, so you should find it easy to increase your income to match your appetites! Once determined Mars arrives in this zone of your chart in mid-November, you will be all set to see out the year with considerable financial success.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
2019 looks set to be a transformative year for you intellectually, Scorpio. Planetary activity this year focuses on learning, teaching, mentoring and community involvement – this is your year to share what you know and to find out more about what you don’t yet know. It all starts with a Solar Eclipse in your learning zone in the first week of the year, which is mirrored by another such eclipse in the last week of 2019 – the distance you will travel, mentally, between these two dates is remarkable.
Make every effort to expand your mind and to take up new learning opportunities. Befriend someone who would benefit from your experience and help them to learn their own lessons too. A Full Moon in your own sign in May gives you confidence in how much you have to offer. Another Solar Eclipse, in your philosophy zone in early July, proves to you that your knowledge and wisdom is needed in the world.
Once Mars moves into your sign in mid-November, you’ll realize that your passion lies in teaching in some way. Soon afterwards, Jupiter, the planet of growth and expansion, shifts into your learning zone, reinforcing all that you have learned in 2019 and setting the scene for further growth to come. A delightful Jupiter-Uranus trine in mid-December also highlights the links between communication, education and your closest relationship – so if you’re single, someone you meet at that time in a learning environment could well prove significant in your life moving ahead.
There’s also some learning to do in your love life. 2019 gets off to a passionate and promising start, when Mars arrives in your love zone – on Valentine’s Day, appropriately enough. However, rebel planet Uranus also settles into your love zone in early March, bringing more than your fair share of shocks and surprises. With Mercury retrograde in your flirting zone throughout March, it could be that a particular encounter – innocent or not so innocent – is enough to spark chaos within an established relationship.
Some of this angst will settle down in May, when a New Moon in your romance zone helps to calm and soothe anxieties and jealousy. However, a very tough and tempestuous square between Mars and Uranus occurs in July, this will pit your love life against your career in some way. If your working conditions are not conducive to a good work-life balance, expect this to be a major source of tension in 2019.
Much of the rest of the year is about you learning to handle these conflicts and learning to make choices which prioritize your loved ones instead of your career. When diplomatic Venus arrives in your sign in early October, stand-offs will soften - and a promising Full Moon in November suggests that the problems can be eased. It’s not until mid-December, however, when a very positive Jupiter-Uranus trine confirms that communication with your lover has finally gotten easier – from this point onwards, peace should reign supreme.
Early January finds you spending like there’s no tomorrow, with luxury-loving Venus in your money zone. However, a tumultuous Lunar Eclipse suggests that a shock may be on the way. By the time a dangerously volatile Mars-Uranus conjunction occurs in your work zone in mid-February, you may be backed into a corner. Tense squares between Jupiter and Neptune occur in January, June and September, highlighting the risks you are taking with either your income or your career; there could be some dramatic decisions made at this time.
Fortunately, you are nothing if not resourceful. If you do find yourself temporarily struggling in the spring of 2019, it won’t last long. A fortunate Full Moon in your money zone in mid-June marks the start of a financial come back. Ambitious Mars, one of your ruling planets, shifts into your career zone in early July and you’ll soon fight your way back to the top. A New Moon in early August is the perfect time to take on a new role or to launch a new business.
By the time winter arrives, you should be feeling financially more secure. A New Moon in your money zone in late November highlights your success. More importantly, it suggests that you have forged a new relationship with and understanding of money during 2019. No longer as materially-focused as you were at the beginning of the year, you’ll end 2019 secure but much more thoughtful about how you earn a living and what you do with your hard-earned cash.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 20th)
2019 is largely a happy-go-lucky year for you, Sagittarius. Your ruling planet, bountiful Jupiter, is in your own sign for most of the year, only leaving in early December to help bring abundance into your money zone. With pleasant developments in your love life and interesting times ahead at work, this could well be a red-letter year. A Full Moon in mid-January promises recognition for you, so expect plenty of praise and attention right from the start of the year.
At times, however, the year may seem just a little bit too full-on. Moments in January, June and September could be especially exhausting, when Jupiter squares up to Neptune. In these months, try to make sure that your home is a welcoming place to be. Create your own sacred space and retreat into meditation or a peaceful sanctuary. Family demands are likely to grow during these months, but you’ll also find loved ones willing to help you relax and chill out- finding the right balance is key.
In July, your beliefs or philosophies may be challenged. You talk a good talk, but are you walking the walk? With Mercury retrograde in your philosophy zone in July, be prepared to take practical steps to back up your inner convictions. Towards the end of November, a New Moon in your own sign signals that you’re ready to emerge from these challenges, probably with a new and more mature understanding of the world and your place in it.
Fiery Mars starts the year in your passion zone and Venus arrives in Sagittarius in early January, so there should be plenty of memories to make. A gorgeous conjunction between Venus and your ruler Jupiter in late January could mark a significant moment – if you’re single, you may find yourself inexplicably drawn towards someone. There could be some karmic links at play here, as you encounter someone from your soul group and from a pervious lifetime. Fascinating stuff!
Be aware that too much of a good thing can cause its own problems, however. A highly volatile Mars-Uranus conjunction in your passion zone in mid-February suggests a relationship which may get out of hand. Once warrior-planet Mars shifts into your romance zone at the end of March, anger may replace passion for a while.
Things should calm down over the northern hemisphere’s summer, however, with gentle Venus soothing your love zone in June and a New Moon in this same zone bringing the promise of a fresh start. In early July, a Solar Eclipse occurs in your intimacy zone – something which was previously secret may come to light, much to your shock. However, this sudden blast of honesty is a good thing in the long run, as it means you can stop hiding. Welcome this Eclipse with open arms and open your heart to its lessons. In early December, a Full Moon in your love zone highlights how far your partnership has come this year and helps you to consolidate your love ahead of 2020.
A Solar Eclipse in your money zone in early January may not be the ideal way to start a new year, but any financial shocks will be short-lived. Use the New Moon in early February to get yourself back on track, perhaps with a new side hustle or a different approach to upping your income. Luxury-loving Venus changes signs in early March, so the indications are there that you’ll have cash to spare very soon.
Also, in early March, rebel planet Uranus arrives in your day to day work zone. This lends an air of unpredictability to your work throughout the rest of the year – expect plenty of changes! Some of these changes will not be much fun, but you will also have the chance to make your own changes and to take back control of your career. In July, a tense square between Mars and Uranus suggest that travel to and from work becomes an issue- or perhaps you will need to move in order to pursue your career. This is an inconvenience to be sure, but again, behind the disruption you can find opportunities.
In early December, bountiful Jupiter arrives in your money zone – just in time for the holiday season! You can certainly expect an increase in income around that time, but also a shift in your own attitude towards abundance and finance. The Solar Eclipse in late December focuses on what you have versus what you want versus what you need – and your own philosophy on this is indeed changing.
Capricorn (December 21st - January 18th)
Feeling creative, Capricorn? Good, because 2019 is set to be a year when your creative boundaries are pushed further than you ever knew possible. There is tremendous growth ahead for your creative talents and for your spirituality too, all against a backdrop of steady progression in both your love life and your work. The year begins with a Solar Eclipse in your own sign in early January, prompting you to ask deep questions about who you really are. With determined Mars in your history zone from New Year’s Day, late winter and spring in the northern hemisphere are excellent times for exploring your own identity and image.
In late January, a soulful conjunction between Jupiter and Venus brings insight and imagination – expect to take a leap forwards in any creative projects at that time. Watch out for misunderstandings and miscommunications, however. Three times this year, in January, June and September, Jupiter squares up to nebulous Neptune, and each time you will struggle to get your message across. You may also suffer intrusions into your privacy at these times. Set clear boundaries between yourself and the rest of the world.
In early December, expansive Jupiter shifts into your own sign, bringing a huge burst of creativity, warmth, generosity of spirit and optimism. A stunning trine between Jupiter and Uranus in mid-December highlights another enormous surge of creativity: this is the perfect moment for getting ambitious artistic projects off the ground. By the time a second Solar Eclipse in your sign occurs in the last week of the year, you will have grown significantly.
Playfulness is a key theme in your love life this year, most notably perhaps when energetic Mars shifts into your fun zone on Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re single and dating or happy in an established relationship, you’ll want to bring the magic back to love and you’ll enjoy being spontaneous and silly in love. Fast forward a few weeks and rebel planet Uranus also shifts into your fun zone for an extended stay – this is when your youthful, creative, energetic side really takes over and love becomes something of a game.
Be careful, however. Your partner may not love your new, slightly irresponsible attitude towards love. In mid-May there could be fireworks when Mars stirs up tempers in your love zone. In July a potent Mars-Uranus square bring jealousy and risk taking to the fore in your love life, encouraging you to live dangerously but also warning you of the consequences if you do. A Solar Eclipse in early July in your romance zone could mark a turning point, for better or for worse.
It sounds dramatic, but you can lessen the tension considerably throughout the year by keeping your love life open-hearted. Go for complete honesty with your sweetheart and try to avoid anything deceptive. New shared hobbies will draw you closer together, so think outside the bedroom too when you’re hoping to revive that magical spark.
It’s a relatively quiet year on the career front. As ever, you are working hard and seeking to improve your lot, and this should get a boost in early February when there is a New Moon in your money zone – make a fresh start in wiping out debts at this point or look to see where an under-used talent of yours could bring in some income.
The period between late March and late April could bring some changes at work. Two consecutive Full Moons in your career zone highlight difficult decisions you must make, or choices which appear to conflict with one another. At the end of March, argumentative Mars shifts into your everyday work zone, possibly increasing tensions among colleagues. Working conditions may not be ideal for a few months, but it’s nothing you can’t tolerate if you just follow your own path and keep working hard. Seek input from your family and your loved ones when making career choices this year – it’s not only you who will have to live with the results of your decisions.
The best period for job hunting, promotion or successful business results is between late September and early October. A New Moon in your career zone could suggest a job change or a switch of direction, while the arrival of Mars in this zone finds you following your ambitions with new enthusiasm. Keep doing what you do, and you’ll make some good progress.
Aquarius (January 19th - February 17th)
Planetary activity in 2019 focuses on your spirituality and the part you play in your community and wider society. The energies this year are all about deepening your faith and opening your consciousness, starting with a Solar Eclipse in your spiritual zone in early January – another matching Solar Eclipse in the last week of 2019 will show you how far you will have traveled on this issue this year.
Throughout the northern hemisphere’s spring you will be questioning society and questioning your own values. Your intentions are pure, and you want to learn and to grow, but don’t be surprised if others find you troublesome at this time – in mid-February, around a volatile Mars-Uranus conjunction, it will be very difficult for you to get your message across and you may spark anger in some. Once Uranus shifts into your family and past zone in early March, you may also start to question your roots and to research your past more thoroughly than you have done so far. This could be an unsettling experience, but hang on in there, you have so much to gain! Uranus transiting your family zone may also manifest in some shocks and surprises for the home this year – perhaps new arrivals or a change of residence.
It’s in early December that you’ll truly find your spiritual calling, when bountiful Jupiter shifts into your spiritual zone. A beautiful Jupiter-Uranus trine in mid-December also links to your family, so don’t be surprised if you find that your higher purpose involves working with families in some way. Reach out into your local community and work with those who need you the most.
You may come across as selfish in love this year. That’s not your intention, but your thoughts are so caught up with the bigger questions in life that you’re not necessarily on the ball with your sweetheart. In late January, a Venus-Jupiter conjunction in your community zone highlights the love you give to wider society and your friendship links in the wider world. For a while, these are your sole focus. Venus in your own sign in March highlights this rather distant approach, and when argumentative Mars shifts into your passion zone at the end of March, it could become a source of conflict.
Watch out for tensions between your family and your in-laws too, especially in July when a difficult Mars-Uranus square encourages frustration and anger. July is a passionate month, with Mars bringing great energy to your love zone, but Mercury is also retrograde at this time, so you’ll need to be extra careful in how you communicate with your lover.
The tensions and misunderstandings of the first half of the year do start to fade away following a New Moon in your love zone in early August. You’ll find a way to manage your time so that your sweetheart doesn’t feel cut out by your community work, and so that you can enjoy the magic you have created together. Don’t give up on your partner or yourself – it’s just a matter of finding a better balance.
Your focus on community projects or philanthropic causes is also reflected in your working life this year. In January, June and September, tricky squares between Jupiter and Neptune highlight how your good intentions could be mis-used by others. Be very careful in your relationships with fellow volunteers or not-for-profit colleagues at these times. You should also take care in March, when Mercury is retrograde in your money zone – this is not a great time to make major financial decisions. Get expert advice – and listen to it!
Mid-May is a more promising time, with a Full Moon in your career zone indicating recognition or progress at work. Finding meaning in your career is especially important to you just now and you may want to spend the summer months thinking about a career switch into a field you find more significant. Certainly, a Solar Eclipse in your everyday work zone in early July hints at a change of path, and quite a sudden one at that – this could come as a shock at the time, but you’ll be able to look back and see it as the beneficial influence it is.
Further career progress is likely in the fall. A New Moon in your career zone in late October pushes you ever forwards and when ambitious Mars arrives in this zone in late November, you should have both the energy and the desire to make a real difference to the world. Good for you, Aquarius!
Pisces (February 18th - March 19th)
As a sensitive water sign, your wellbeing is significantly influenced by the company you keep – and perhaps you’ve been surrounding yourself with the wrong kind of people. A Solar Eclipse in your friendship zone in the first week of the year may be a crisis point or a sudden shock which helps to clarify in your mind what needs to be done. A Lunar Eclipse in your health zone at the end of January urges a focus on your mental health, so don’t hesitate to walk away from those who drain you.
Once Uranus, the rebel planet, settles in your neighborhood zone in early March, you’ll find it easy to pick and choose who you spend time with. A New Moon in Pisces, also in early March, helps you to put yourself first and to recognise those who are truly on your side. With Mercury retrograde in your sign at this time, you may find it awkward at first to say no to people, but it will quickly become second nature.
Spend the year surrounding yourself with those who love you and those who are on the same wavelength as you. Once Jupiter arrives in your friendship zone in early December, many new faces will come into your orbit and new friendships will bring you great joy. There’s a mentor-like figure waiting for you too, likely to emerge in mid-December. Being stricter with the company you choose will enable your own identity to flourish – and not before time!
2019 is a relatively quiet year in your love life. If you’re happy in a relationship, you’re likely to stay that way; if you’re single, you can enjoy plenty of good company and fun encounters. A Full Moon in your romance zone in late February is an excellent time for a second honeymoon or for making special promises to a loved one. Venus arrives in your sign at the end of March, so the northern hemisphere’s springtime in general is a romantic and loving season this year.
A Solar Eclipse in early July falls in your risk zone, so there could be a shock in store if either you or your sweetheart have been less than honest recently. Warrior planet Mars is also transiting your passion zone around this time, so jealousy and rivalry could cloud a relationship for a month or two. Keep your head, however, because this is not a life-changing moment unless you want it to be. All things can be healed, if the will is there.
The end of August looks likely to be one such healing time in your love life. Within the space of a couple of weeks, Venus and Mars both shift into your love zone and a New Moon occurs there too – this is a time of new beginnings and fresh starts. Whether it’s the healing of an established relationship or the early stages of a new one, the late northern summer brings peace, love and harmony for sure.
Work and career are some of the busiest astrological zones for you in 2019, so you can expect to see great progress here. Right from the start of the year, determined Mars is in your money zone, helping to boost your income and grow your wealth. An extremely fortunate Venus-Jupiter conjunction at the end of January falls in your career zone so you may find yourself in the right place at the right time for a very lucky break indeed. Hold your nerve and keep riding this wave. Mid-February brings a volatile Mars-Uranus conjunction in your money zone, so take care with any wheeling and dealing – get expert advice when you need it.
Three difficult squares between Jupiter and Neptune occur in January, June and September, which suggest that your financial and career good fortune may cause you to rest on your laurels somewhat this year – maybe becoming a bit lazy or feeling slightly entitled. Watch out for this and nip it in the bud before it becomes an issue with your attitude. A Full Moon in your career zone in mid-June could highlight any arrogance you’ve developed, so try to stay humble.
Overall, however, you’ve worked hard to achieve what you have, and you’re entitled to some luck. A Full Moon in your money zone in mid-October, coupled with a New Moon in late November, suggests that you will end 2019 in a good place both financially and work-wise. Set some challenging goals for 2020, because you’re on a roll here.
