Monthly Horoscopes January 2019
Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
The start of the year is a powerful one for the Rams of the Zodiac with your ruling planet Mars entering your Sign on January 1. Aries love new beginnings and 2019 is the ideal time for you to forge new pathways. You can leave 2018 in your wake and focus on your New year Resolutions. You have plenty of energy to achieve your ambitions. You need to ensure that others may be left in your wake, so make sure that you take special loved ones along for the ride. Luckily the Sun is shining in the 10th House of your Solar Chart at the start of the year indicating that your friends and associates are likely to be supportive of your professional goals. You can harness more support through networking, social events and group activities. In February Mars moves on and you can then consolidate your initiatives. The start of the calendar years also sees the erratic planet Uranus continuing to play havoc in the Sign of Aries. If you haven’t already done so then you need to ensure that you have let go of outmoded patterns of behavior, people who weigh you down or projects that have lost their shine. In March Uranus moves on and you can then assess these matters in a more practical and patient manner.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
The start of 2019 is the ideal time for Taureans to do a vision board, something that helps you plan the big-ticket items for the year. If you are not sure what a vision board entitles then you can Google and find plenty of ideas. In fact, Google may be your best friend in 2019 as you seek to expand your horizons. Your year is likely to include some form of travel, study or spiritual expansion. What would you like to experience? Your primary partnership needs to be your focus at the start of the year as your ruling planet Venus is in the 7th House of your Solar Chart, the sector connected to marriage and contracts. So make sure that you listen to your loved one. Planetary indicators are prompting you to start to think of your life as a journey. You love security but the erratic planet Uranus enters your Zodiac Sign again in March compelling you to leave your comfort zone and experience some excitement in life. Your financial assets are likely to be affected, leaving you feel somewhat exposed. What is the meaning of this? The idea is to stop focusing on material security or comfort and look at your personal relationships, communal activities and other emotional assets.
Gemini (May 21st - June 20th)
You are likely to yearn for a change of scenery in January, a way to start 2019 on a different note. A holiday to a different part of the globe is likely to satisfy your urge for change. If this is not possible then perhaps rearranging the furniture or rooms in your house help freshen your outlook. Day trips can also provide the stimulus you need. The idea is that change is afoot and you like to focus on positive thoughts and connections. January 2019 is also the ideal time to reassess your fiscal investments. Joint finances come under the microscope. Do you have a nest egg? If so how is it faring in the current financial climate? Do you need to make changes? These matters are a focus right now. As a Gemini you are sensitive to the planetary motion of your ruling planet Mercury. When the Messenger of the Gods goes Retrograde you can reassess and rearrange many areas of your life. This year Mercury goes backwards from March 6 – 29, July 8 – August 3, and November 1 – November 21. During these times you need to be a little more retrospective, reassess your priorities. Positive times for you are around May 21 and August 29. This is likely to be when plans come to fruition.
Cancer (June 21st - July 22nd)
The start of 2019 sees you well and truly focused on a primary loved one. This could be your spouse, or someone who has temporarily taken priority over your spouse because they need you. Major planets in your opposing Zodiac Sign have already pulled your attention to difficulties experienced in relationship to others. You are a natural caretaker but sometimes tough love is called for. This is not your natural modus operandi but the planets are calling on you to get a backbone, in the kindest possible way. This may mean standing up to someone who is taking advantage of your kind nature, or it could be that you need to spend some time nurturing your own emotional needs. Either way the time is now, not later. Clarity on current matters of the heart may come during a Solar Eclipse in your opposing Sign, Capricorn on January 6. The middle of May sparks some extra drive and energy, and perhaps a new project that has meaning for you personally. A Solar Eclipse in your Zodiac Sign on July 3 is likely to trigger an event that helps you further your own goals.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
You may be enjoying a New Year’s break, planning new ventures, or socializing with loved ones but the planets are aligned in the 6th House of your Solar Chart indicating that January 2019 is your ideal time for a new health regime. If your New Year’s resolution is to get fit then you are on the right track. You can start a program at the gym or if this does not excite you then choose a hobby that gets you fit. Dancing, rock climbing, horse riding, swimming at the beach on a warm day are just some activities that come to mind. You are more likely to enjoy an activity that is social rather than solitary. The 6th House is also the sector that is associated with pets. All pets are highlighted, but walking a dog, either your own or a neighbor’s could be an attractive option. A Lunar Eclipse in your Zodiac Sign on January 21 gives you the chance to reflect on what makes you happy. The energetic planet Mars enters your Sign on July 2 sparking a period of extra energy and perhaps a project that inspires your passion. If you have second thoughts about something on July 8 take a few weeks before making an irrevocable decision.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
January is your time for putting your house in order. You may have a quiet New Year planned but your ruling planet Mercury is in the 4th House of your Solar chart indicating busy times at home. This could be instigated by your own changes, or perhaps you are welcoming visitors. You are likely to be responsible for children, either your own or other people’s. Or perhaps a creative project is demanding your attention. These impact on your personal space. So, you need to create space at home for new year activities, or to retreat from your responsibilities. Household repairs, improvements, expansion and other such changes can be fulfilling. You are creating space now for the forthcoming year, which may be busy at home. 2019 is a relatively quiet year for Virgos as you settle into more of a routine and move forwards with your plans. The planets Pluto and Saturn lend their support to your activities as they are making positive aspects from earth Capricorn to earth Virgo. You may need to pause, or become more reflective in March, July and November when your ruling planet Mercury goes Retrograde.
Libra (September 23rd - October 22nd)
Home is where the heart is for you at the start of 2019. Planets are aligned in the 4th House of your Solar Chart ensuring that you are never far from home. House repairs, home improvements or even a change of home may be on your mind. On the other hand you may entertain many guests in your home. You are well able to create a peaceful environment for others to rest their weary heads. The key is to also ensure that you are able to enjoy your own haven. January also sees you tempted to spend your personal income on a beautiful object or an artistic outing. As long as you don’t stretch your budget too far then you can enjoy such a purchase. You may also be responsible for a family member who needs your support, but then what else is new? Other people may continue to surprise you, perhaps even upset you until the erratic planet Uranus moves away from your opposing Sign of Aries on Mar 6. Until then the aim is to heal past hurts, maintain an equilibrium and enjoy the haven of home and family.
Scorpio (October 23rd - November 21st)
You have much on your mind as the New calendar year dawns. Perhaps you are planning a short journey, which takes some organising skills. On the other hand you may be immersed in family or neighbourhood politics. The communication lines are busy right now. The idea is to keep focussed on positive connections with others. Learning a new skill, taking up meditation or escaping with a good book could help relax your mind. The planet of love and money, Venus is in your Zodiac Sign at the start of the year indicating that you can utilise resources for positive experiences. Relationships with women are likely to be particularly beneficial. It is not what you know, but who you know as the saying goes. The erratic planet Uranus moves into your opposing Zodiac Sign Taurus on March 6 sparking busy times. Someone or something may prompt a change of heart around this time. The idea is to go with the flow. You have clearer insights when planets move into your Sign in October and November.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
In many ways 2019 is your year! The lucky planet Jupiter is moving through Sagittarius heralding all good things for the Archers of the Zodiac. However, January does see some financial restraints imposed. You are likely to be assessing your personal resources to see if you have enough to achieve all of your 2019 goals. You don’t need to fret too much. Rewards and resources come your way this year. Jupiter brings recognition, expansion and optimism. Others appreciate your efforts and help you along the way. The key is to make sure that your self-esteem is intact. Your self-confidence is likely to be boosted by your ruling planet Jupiter but do you truly believe that you deserve good things? It is also important to make sure that you don’t overindulge. Expansion is good in many areas, but perhaps not of the waistline! Jupiter remains in your Zodiac Sign until December 3. Meanwhile the dwarf planet Ceres also moves into Sagittarius, remaining there on and off until November 16 ensuring that you do nurture yourself, your associates and your ideas. You are blessed with new opportunities.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
2019 is a big year for Capricorns. Whether you are a domestic or mountain goat you are being called on to make big changes. Planets have been aligned in Capricorn for some time and remain so this year. You need a make-over – physically, emotionally, intellectually and/or spiritually. If you don’t take charge yourself then events are likely to trigger changes for you. It is time to build new structures if the old ones have outlived their usefulness. The key is never to say never. What is possible? What can be changed and built anew? These are the questions. By the time these planets move on your life will look completely different, in a good way as long as you learn your lessons. If planets in your Zodiac Sign were not enough then Eclipses also occur in your Zodiac Sign. A Solar Eclipse triggers events on January 6, starting the year as it means to go on. A Lunar Eclipse is in Capricorn on July 17 and then another Solar Eclipse on December 26. This is your year to go with the flow. Resistance does not service you.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
Aquarians need to hit the pause button during January. This is your time for reflection. Contemplation rather than action is the key. Turn off the social media and other forms of extraneous distraction and tune into nature, meditation or a good book. A serene start sets the tone for the rest of the year. Your fellow Zodiac Signs may be under the spotlight right now but you can slowly and surely work towards your own goals. Your ruling planet Saturn, known as the Lord of Karma, moves into your Sign in mid-2020. You are able to work now to reap your rewards then. If you avoid your responsibilities then you may make extra work for yourself later. A Lunar Eclipse occurs in your Zodiac Sign on January 21 triggering insights into your emotional needs. The pace around this Eclipse may be faster than the rest of the year surprising you with unexpected events. The key is to remain flexible.
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Your ruling planet Jupiter is high in your Solar Chart indicating that this is a fortunate year for Pisces. This is your year to shine in public. This could be through your chosen profession, as an office bearer in a voluntary organisation or through your marriage. You are held in high esteem and receive the positive recognition that you deserve. You may make some changes to your life direction. Luckily friendships are forged that support your personal and professional hopes, dreams and wishes. You need to continue to seek meaning, rather than ambition, in your life as the planet Neptune continues to wend its way through your Zodiac Sign. Spiritual and artistic pursuits can be healing. The middle of the year sees some changes that slow you down a little. From June 22 you benefit from focussing on more relaxing activities such as listening to music, swimming, or meditation and prayer. By November 27 you are able to move forward listening to your intuition.
