YEAR OF 2019: Full speed ahead, Aries! As far as you’re concerned, that’s the only way to approach a new year (or any new adventure). And with ruling planet Mars charging into your sign just a few hours before midnight on New Year’s Eve, you’ll be fired up and ready to tackle 2019.
For the first two months, you’ll have the perfect partner in crime: mover-and-shaker Uranus is wrapping up a seven-year stay in your sign, and his conjunction with Mars in the last degree on February 12 means he’s going out with a bang! Get the momentum going now—you’ll need it after March 6, when Uranus moves into Taurus. With all four outer planets then in earth and water signs, the rest of the year could feel like you’re trudging through the mud.
But have no fear, Aries—you’ve got more than enough willpower to get you through! The trick is knowing where and how to focus your incredible energy. Don’t burn yourself out trying to fight what you can’t change; instead, concentrate on the things that you can control.
It shouldn’t be too hard to keep the faith, either, with Jupiter living large in his home sign of Sagittarius for most of the year. Jupiter’s optimism and enthusiasm really fuel your fire—and his two conjunctions with Venus (January 22 and November 24) give you permission to leave it all behind and enjoy yourself for a while. Jupiter also squares Neptune this year, though (January 13, June 16, and September 21), so be careful not to check out completely… you’ve got way too much to do!
Work/life balance is the name of the game for you this year—especially in June and July, when four Cancer planets (Mars, Mercury, the sun, and Venus) oppose retrograde Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn; also squaring your Aries sun.
July’s eclipses (solar on the second, lunar on the sixteenth) take place in Cancer and Capricorn as well, demanding that you slow your roll at work and make more time for family, home, and self-care. It may not be what you want, Aries, but it’s definitely something you’ll need if you want to lay the foundation for lasting success.
YEAR OF 2019: Romance isn’t your top priority in 2019, Aries. But with two full moons in Libra this spring (March 20 and April 19), you’ll want to give your love life some attention… especially if you’re in a committed relationship. New things coming to light suggest it could be time to move on—but whether that’s separately or together is entirely up to you.
One thing’s for sure, though: the whole “you complete me” thing has got to go! By the time Venus enters your sign (just after the April full moon) you’ll be tired of waiting around for someone else to make you happy—and perfectly capable of doing it yourself. Just don’t be surprised if your fierce new attitude attracts some admirers!
And with Mercury spending some extra time in Leo this summer, why be shy about enjoying the attention? Go ahead, Aries, and get your flirt on! Just do your best to keep things playful and drama-free, because yes, Mercury will be retrograde for most of July, leaving lots of room for misunderstandings.
Things get more serious in the fall, when Mercury, Venus, and the sun in Libra square off against Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. The desire for a relationship is there, but career demands may be taking up too much time and energy to realistically make it work. When Mars enters Libra on October 4, you’ll have to decide if the love is worth fighting for.
If you’ve been a soldier of love all year, the fall could be make-it-or-break-it time. Mercury’s extended time in Scorpio (including another retrograde during the first three weeks of November) is all about going deep and getting real, so there’s no point trying to avoid the tough conversations. Get to the point, Aries, and talk openly with your partner about sex, money, or any other “taboo” subject that comes up at this time. Just make sure you do it with love. If both of you are willing to go there, it can only bring you closer… and maybe even transform your relationship.
YEAR OF 2019: Hold on to your hard hat, Aries, because with Pluto and Saturn continuing their transit of Capricorn (and inching toward their 2020 conjunction), your career remains very much “under construction” in 2019!
This major career overhaul is bound to have some effect on your wallet—whether it’s a sudden or drastic change in your paycheck (for better or worse), or just more ups and downs than you’ve been accustomed to. Fortunately, Uranus in Taurus inspires innovative money management to help you find your financial footing. Personal values around money and success could undergo a radical change as well.
With the South Node also in Capricorn this year, old work habits are easy to fall back on—but unlikely to achieve the results you want. “Risky business” may have worked for you in the past, but Saturn and Pluto aren’t going to let you get away with that this year. Before you make any bold career moves, make sure you have a long-term plan… or at least a plan B.
You’ll have plenty of time to fine-tune your strategy, with both Saturn and Pluto retrograde from late April through most of September. The more you try to push things forward, the more roadblocks you’re likely to encounter. Instead, use this time to take stock of what you’ve accomplished so far, and how much further you have to go.
By the end of the summer, when four planets meet up in Virgo and complete a Grand Earth Trine, you’ll have clarity on what remains to be done—and hopefully, a little more patience to take your time and do it right. Trust that if you stick with it, eventually all the hard work will pay off. (Maybe when Jupiter enters Capricorn in December?) Just remember, Aries, it’s a marathon, not a sprint!
On March 6, Uranus charges into your sign like a bull in a china shop—and he’ll be there shaking things up for the next seven years.
Chaos, upheaval, radical change—we know these aren’t your favorite words to hear. But in a way, Taurus, you’re better equipped than anyone to ride out this transit with ease. After all, no matter what happens, you always seem to keep your feet on the ground and take it in stride.
And that’s good, because when Uranus moves through a sign, he leaves no stone unturned! The shakeups reverberate through all areas of life: your way of approaching situations, your sense of purpose, your appearance, even your health.
With Uranus retrograde from August 11 until January of next year, many of the changes will be happening on an inner level at first. Rest assured, though, by the time he’s done with you in 2026, you may barely recognize yourself!
Uranus ends the year with a trine to Jupiter on December 15 (shortly after Jupiter enters Capricorn). By then, you should be feeling more optimistic about the changes unfolding in your life, and have a better idea of where they’re ultimately leading you. Rewards may appear at this time, if you’ve been a willing and conscious participant in the process.
And that’s the key to surviving—and thriving—with Uranus in your sign: working with the forces of change, not against them.
If you want to be proactive about change in 2019, your own belief systems and thoughts are a great place to start. The moon’s South Node in Capricorn makes it easy to fall back on old, limiting beliefs and punishing self-talk—so be on the lookout for negativity masquerading as “realism.”
We know you’re tougher than the rest, Taurus, but with the North Node in Cancer, you may want to try a little tenderness instead. After all, with Uranus putting you through so many ups and downs, you may be feeling a little extra fragile—so handle yourself with care!
YEAR OF 2019: Jupiter turns up the heat wherever he goes, Taurus… and that’s great news for your love life in 2019!
Love goddess Venus will rendezvous twice with Jupiter in his home sign of Sagittarius, and their conjunctions on January 22 and November 24 cast the whole year in a rosy, romantic glow. Whether you’re in love, or just in love with life, expect passions to be rekindled in a major way!
Venus and Jupiter open up a whole new world of romantic and sexual possibilities. But with Jupiter also squaring Neptune three times this year (January 13, June 16, and September 21) there’s likely to be some confusion between fantasy and reality. Jupiter’s retrograde period, from April 10-August 11, helps you rein in the excess and put things in perspective.
With four planets meeting up in Virgo in August and September, it should be easier to use good judgment. Don’t be too picky, though—you could miss out on a lot of fun! Of course, it really all depends on what you’re looking for right now. Whether it’s something casual, or something more serious, honor yourself by owning your desires.
Desire is fulfilled when the divine lovers, Venus and Mars, unite in Virgo on August 24. If you and your partner have been wanting to start a family, this could be the perfect opportunity. But even if it’s not a child in the literal sense, this aspect can assist you in manifesting whatever you want to create together!
With Uranus in your sign, Taurus, you’re radically reinventing yourself this year. And if you’ve been with someone for a long time, this can be both sexy and scary. Your partner might not totally understand what you’re going through, and feelings of jealousy or possessiveness could arise.
Communication is key—especially from October 3-December 9, when Mercury transits your opposite sign of Scorpio. Mercury’s retrograde during the first three weeks of November creates the potential for misunderstandings, though. So be patient, be deliberate, and most importantly, be honest—if you’re truly a “power couple,” the relationship will evolve along with you!
YEAR OF 2019: Big changes are in the works, Taurus. But while Uranus’ shock waves reverberate throughout your life this year, in the workplace, 2019 looks relatively drama-free.
That doesn’t have to equal boring, though! Around the Aquarius new moon on February 4, Mercury and the sun do some networking with Jupiter in Sagittarius and Mars-Uranus in Aries—and the resulting breakthroughs give your career a much-needed jumpstart.
Once Mars and Uranus take command of your sign (February 14 and March 6, respectively), your competitive spirit goes into maximum overdrive! But with Venus in Aquarius squaring Mars and an awkward Mars-Jupiter quincunx, pushing your own agenda is not the best way to get results—being a team player satisfies your need to succeed.
Work relationships aren’t something you take lightly, Taurus. Still, with two full moons in Libra this spring (March 20 and April 19), it may be time to dissolve some longstanding business ties and forge a few new ones—especially if the terms of the old ones are less than fair. From late April through June, four planets in Gemini activate the Jupiter-Neptune square. Explore all your options, but be careful not to spread yourself too thin or promise more than you can deliver.
From late April through early October, retrograde Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn challenge you to rewrite your personal mission statement. Once they go direct, you’ll be clearer on what really matters in your work—and more willing to negotiate on the other stuff.
Still, with Saturn and Pluto squaring off against four planets in Libra, it’s likely certain things will remain off the table. Be clear about what your “dealbreakers” are, and be prepared to give good reasons. The more tactful and diplomatic you are, Taurus, the more likely you’ll be to get your way.
This is especially true between May 5 and June 23, when four planets in your sign (Mars, Mercury, the sun, and Venus) face off with retrograde Jupiter in Sagittarius. In a year when significant others often come first, these two months are a time to ask: “What about me?”
And with your ruling planet Mercury spending most of the summer in Leo (June 26-July 19 and August 11-29), you’re eager to be seen and heard. It may feel like no one’s listening, especially during Mercury’s retrograde from July 7-31. But don’t be a drama queen, Gemini—there are better ways to get noticed! Instead, look for more fun and creative ways to express yourself.
Still, some drama will be unavoidable in 2019. That’s got a lot to do with Uranus, whose entry into Taurus on March 6 kicks off seven years of rocking your world and blowing your mind. Radical revelations seem to come out of nowhere—and the sudden flashes of insight can be disorienting, to say the least.
Much of what’s coming to light this year has to do with ancient history. For better or worse, your childhood conditioning has remained a powerful influence on your adult life—but the Virgo new moon on August 30 gives you a chance to break the cycle. Along with four other planets in Virgo, this new moon trines Uranus in Taurus and retrograde Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn; forming a Grand Earth Trine that supports you in healing childhood wounds, transforming family relationships, and radically reinventing the way you “parent” yourself.
The best way you can care for yourself this year is to stay as grounded and centered as possible, conserving your energy and cutting out the distractions (social media, anyone?) that scatter your focus. After all, Gemini, there’s such a thing as “too much information”—so you’ll need to save your bandwidth for the stuff that really matters.
YEAR OF 2019: Venus and Jupiter may be 2019’s hottest couple, Gemini, but they’re making this year “hot and heavy” for you too!
Their two conjunctions in Sagittarius (January 22 and November 24) promise to turn up the heat in relationships of all kinds. Old passions are reignited, and new prospects appear on the horizon.
But with Jupiter also squaring Neptune three times this year (January 13, June 16, and September 21), there’s a chance it’s too good to be true. Idealized images or expectations of your partner may be at odds with reality—so make sure it’s them you love, not just the idea of them.
Power dynamics are a major theme this year—especially in the fall, when four Libra planets (Mercury, Venus, the sun, and Mars) take turns squaring Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. All you want is fun, freedom, and fairness… but your partner may be giving off some “authority figure” vibes. Boundaries and structure can be a good thing, but with the South Node also in Capricorn, it’s a slippery slope into unconscious relationship patterns. Be honest with yourself, Gemini, does this relationship make you stronger, or take your power away?
With Saturn and Pluto transiting Capricorn for the foreseeable future, there’s a huge concentration of power in your eighth house… aka, your partner’s resources. Whether it’s financially, emotionally, sexually, or all of the above, you’re relying more heavily on them this year. It’s not necessarily a bad thing—love’s always a give and take, and it’s not about keeping score. Just make sure you’re not depending on anyone to an unhealthy degree… or using someone else to get your own needs met.
If you’ve got a toxic relationship on your hands, the lunar eclipse in Capricorn on July 16 is a great time to eliminate it from your life. It’s also an opportunity to release old dynamics that are no longer working in relationships, so they can be rebuilt on a more solid foundation.
Either way, cultivate your own resources as much as you can this year—after all, Gemini, it’s much sexier to want someone than it is to need them.
YEAR OF 2019: One step forward, two steps back… With all three of this year’s Mercury retrogrades hitting your career houses, Gemini, that’s how 2019 might feel to you.
Throughout this year, as Jupiter in Sagittarius squares Neptune in Pisces, excitement about your love life clashes with feelings of disillusionment in your career. But with Mercury spending extra time in Pisces (February 10-April 16), the “sweet escape” you’re dreaming about may not be what it seems—especially during his retrograde in March. Adjust your expectations and try to love the reality… at least for now.
After all, with the North Node in Cancer, you’re learning to weave your own safety net—and sometimes that means putting financial security first. Mercury visits Cancer twice this summer (June 4-26 and July 19-August 11), giving you plenty of time to think about what that means to you. Use Mercury’s July retrograde to review your spending and saving habits, and revise accordingly.
From mid-June to mid-July, inner planets in Cancer will oppose retrograde Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. If you really want to empower yourself, Gemini, keep working toward financial independence—the July 2 total solar eclipse in Cancer brings this closer within reach!
Between October 7 and December 13, inner planets in Scorpio will trine Neptune and oppose Uranus. You’ve got what it takes to transform your career… but don’t expect it to happen magically overnight! It’s the little changes in your work habits that, over time, will make the biggest difference.
Yes, Gemini, practice makes perfect… and Mercury’s extended stay in Scorpio (October 3-December 9) gives you ample opportunity to hone your skills. Just be careful not to skip steps or gloss over important details, as this could sabotage your efforts—especially during the first three weeks of November, Mercury’s final retrograde of the year.
After all, with the North Node in your sign, self-care can be a path to spiritual growth—especially around the Cancer new moon and total solar eclipse on July 2. Tune in to your body and your emotions, ask what they need to feel safe and secure… then go out and get it for yourself.
Just be conscious of how you go about meeting your needs—some approaches work better than others. From June 14-19, a Mercury-Mars conjunction in your sign opposes retrograde Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, making direct communication an absolute must.
You may think you’re getting your point across, but subtle hints are likely to fly under the radar—or worse, be read as passive-aggressive. Don’t side-step the issue, Cancer; if you’ve got something to say, come out and say it! Just be prepared to repeat yourself when retrograde Mercury revisits your sign (July 19-August 11).
Communication breakthroughs are finally possible at the Virgo new moon on August 30, when five planets in Virgo link up with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus to form a Grand Earth Trine. This helps you choose precisely the right words, and be more realistic and pragmatic—less emotional or sentimental—about social interactions. Clearing away mental and emotional clutter from the past can help you see a new way forward in relationships of all kinds.
The Virgo new moon also activates one of the year’s most significant aspects: the Jupiter-Neptune square, which will be exact for the third and final time on September 21. This challenges you to accept once and for all that nobody’s perfect… not even you.
Ultimately, Cancer, this year is about learning to love yourself (and others) as you are, not as you think you should be—and that little shift can make a huge difference to your overall health and happiness.
YEAR OF 2019: Love is no joke, Cancer. In fact, with the South Node, Saturn, and Pluto in your opposite sign for all of 2019, it’s serious business!
These heavy hitters in Capricorn are driving home the importance of personal responsibility and accountability in relationships. When things go wrong, it may feel safer to project the blame onto your partner… but the situation is rarely that simple. Avoiding your share of the responsibility just keeps you stuck repeating the same mistakes, playing out the same unconscious patterns. And who’s got time for that?
With two solar eclipses in Capricorn this year (January 5 and December 25), you’re ready to hit the reset button. But before you can move forward in your present relationship, or attract a new one into your life, you’ll need to check your baggage. If unresolved issues from past relationships are weighing you down, the July 16 lunar eclipse offers opportunities for emotional release, closure, and healing.
By the fall, Cancer, you’ll be in a better space to build the healthy, happy relationship you deserve. But even happy couples fight sometimes, so if conflicts do arise—as they’re likely to do between late September and early November, when planets in Libra square Saturn and Pluto—make sure to resolve them with mutual love and respect. Fortunately, these Libra planets also sextile Jupiter in Sagittarius. Keep an open mind, a sense of humor, and an optimistic attitude about what’s possible!
After all, exciting new connections are a definite possibility later in the year, with Mercury spending over two months in Scorpio (October 3-December 9, retrograde October 31-November 20). Mercury and the other personal planets in Scorpio (Venus, the sun, and Mars) will oppose Uranus in Taurus and trine Neptune in Pisces, opening you up to the idea of meeting new people in unusual or unexpected ways.
Download a new dating app, let a friend hook you up, or just get out there and explore the world on your own. One thing’s for sure, Cancer: if you want to find love in 2019, you’ll have to come out of your shell!
YEAR OF 2019: Do what you love, Cancer, and they say you’ll never work a day in your life. This rings true for you in 2019—with Jupiter in Sagittarius, you’re definitely mixing business with pleasure!
True, your workload could also get a little heavier this year. But a corresponding increase in job satisfaction makes it well worth the effort.
Still, with three Jupiter-Neptune squares this year (January 13, June 16, and September 21), try not to be too idealistic about your job. After all, it may be a labor of love, but you’re also in it for the money! Two Venus-Jupiter conjunctions (January 22 and November 24) offer rewards, as long as you have confidence in your own worth.
A lunar eclipse in Leo on January 21 helps you release false modesty, and find the courage to ask for what you truly deserve. Mercury’s two forays into Leo (June 26-July 19 and August 11-29) should provide plenty of opportunities. But choose your moment carefully, Cancer—and use Mercury’s retrograde from July 7-31 to review your accomplishments and build a convincing case. By the twenty-fifth of July, when Mars in Leo trines Jupiter in Sagittarius, you may be rewarded for your initiative!
Your newfound role as “office rebel” comes courtesy of Uranus, who’s spent the last seven years shaking things up in Aries (your tenth house of career). And from New Year’s Eve through February 12, Mars is there to help him power through any unfinished business. Their conjunction in the last degree of Aries blasts you off into an exciting new phase of activism and innovation, which begins when Uranus enters Taurus on March 6. Reach out to other like-minded people in your field this year, and take the first steps toward forming new networks and support systems. You’ll need them to help you navigate the changes to come over the next seven years!
After all, with a total lunar eclipse in your sign at the start of the year (January 21), you’re releasing an old identity and setting the stage for a new one—and that’s definitely a behind-the-scenes process. You’ll need plenty of privacy to nurture the growth happening on a deep, subconscious level.
With the North Node in Cancer all year, self-care comes first. And that hits home for you when Mercury and Mars in Cancer oppose Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn (June 14-19). Listen to your body—it may be trying to tell you something. Give yourself plenty of down time, and do your best to establish routines that keep you grounded and centered.
Mercury spends the summer traveling between your twelfth (Cancer) and first (Leo) houses, bridging your inner “secret world” with your outer reality. Important messages are coming through, and you’ll have multiple chances to receive them—and more importantly, act on them. You’ll feel more like your usual, expressive self with Mercury in your sign (June 26-July 19 and August 11-29). But with the messenger planet retrograde from July 7-31, you may have to repeat yourself a few times to get your point across.
Later in the year, Mercury will spend two months in Scorpio (October 3-December 9, retrograde October 31-November 20). Your year-long journey of self-discovery leads to new insights about your childhood, family, or heritage… and your concepts of home and family could be transformed in the process. In a more literal sense, you may also be inspired to “transform” your home environment by renovating, redecorating, or clearing clutter.
If all this sounds a little intense, Leo, don’t worry—with Jupiter in Sagittarius, there are also plenty of good times in store! Just remember, moderation is the name of the game. Keep it at a nice slow burn, and your inner fire will sustain you through 2019 and beyond.
YEAR OF 2019: When it comes to love, Leo, you’ve always been a little “extra.” But with Jupiter in Sagittarius for most of 2019, this year you might even outdo yourself!
And with two Venus-Jupiter conjunctions (January 22 and November 24), the romantic possibilities are virtually endless. Exciting new people and prospects can show up in your life… but are they too good to be true? You’ll have to look more closely—with Jupiter also squaring Neptune three times this year (January 13, June 16, and September 21), it’s not always easy to tell fantasy from reality.
Still, if you’re in a long-term relationship, a little bit of fantasy can go a long way toward reigniting the spark. Just know your limits—the temptation to overindulge, overspend, or overly idealize your partner can be difficult to resist.
After all, Leo, fantasy is fun—but eventually, you have to get real, even if it means sacrificing some of the mystique. Real intimacy means having empathy for each other’s struggles and talking about sensitive stuff like money, sex, and power dynamics.
And with Mercury spending two months in Pisces (February 10-April 16, retrograde March 5-28), these hot topics are definitely on the table for you. Boundaries are being dissolved and redrawn, hopefully in ways that are healthier and happier for everyone. Discuss this with love—but be aware that with Neptune also in Pisces, there’s potential for confusion or even deception.
You love to be loved, Leo, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need your space. And deep down, you’re more attracted to someone who needs theirs, too. Whether you’re in a serious relationship or keeping it casual, the Aquarius new moon on February 4—with Mercury, also in Aquarius, sextile Jupiter—can bring a breath of fresh air.
You may not want what you’re “supposed” to want in a relationship… and that’s OK. It just means you’ll have to get creative and come up with an arrangement that works for you. Be direct about what you want—especially in March, when Venus in Aquarius squares Mars in Taurus—but keep a playful spirit and an open mind!
YEAR OF 2019: Stay on your grind, Leo—with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn for the long haul, your workload isn’t getting any lighter in 2019.
But that doesn’t mean you have to approach it in the same old way. In fact, with the South Node also in Capricorn, that’s unlikely to achieve the results you want this year. Fortunately, three eclipses in Capricorn (solar on January 5 and December 25, lunar on July 16) can help you break bad work habits and establish better ones.
Uranus’ entry into Taurus on March 6 stirs up dissatisfaction with the status quo in your career. You’re ready for a radical change, but try not to make any sudden moves—with Uranus here until 2026, you’ve got plenty of time to plan your exit strategy. (Just don’t be surprised if your plans change more than once!)
Around the new moon on August 30, a stellium of planets in Virgo (moon, sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) forms a Grand Earth Trine with Uranus, Saturn, and Pluto. This flow of energy among your three career houses gives you the potential to radically reinvent your career, with lasting success… as long as you keep showing up and doing the work.
The Virgo planets also form a T-square with retrograde Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Sagittarius. If you’re considering a risky business move around this time, make sure it’s a calculated one—don’t quit your day job without a solid plan and a good safety net.
We are not going to lie, Leo, 2019 might not be the most exciting year of your career. But if you take your time to do things right, it’ll be time well spent. And who knows? By December, when Jupiter joins the party in Capricorn and makes his own trine to Uranus, your patience and hard work may pay off with a “big break!”
After all, for you, home is more a state of mind than a specific place. And the same goes for family—whether they’re biological relatives or kindred spirits, this year family ties are tighter than ever. Venus’ two conjunctions with Jupiter (January 22 and November 24) draw you toward spending more time with family and rediscovering your cultural and spiritual roots.
Just be mindful of the gap between visions of what family relationships “should” or “could” be, and what they actually are. Jupiter squares Neptune in Pisces three times this year (January 13, June 16, and September 21), making it easy to over-idealize. Things can also get too close for comfort, especially if you and your family members aren’t careful to set healthy boundaries.
You often put family first, Virgo, but by August, a Venus-Mars conjunction in your sign on the twenty-fourth puts your desires front and center. You won’t have to push too hard to get your way, though: with five planets in your sign at the Virgo new moon on August 30, you’ll have some powerful allies in your corner!
This Virgo stellium also forms a Grand Earth Trine with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. You’re not asking for much—but asking at all feels like an empowering act of rebellion. It’s time to reject self-imposed limitations, and dream a little bigger!
Uranus’ transit of Taurus (from March 6 through 2026) will be all about expanding your vision. Unexpected life events, or experiences of “culture shock,” can prompt you to question just about everything. And with your ruler Mercury spending most of the fall (October 3-December 9) in the opposite sign of Scorpio, you’ll be in full investigative-reporter mode. Mercury’s retrograde, from October 31-November 20, finds you releasing old assumptions and revising your beliefs in light of new information. Just make sure it comes from sources you trust!
YEAR OF 2019: Hey, Virgo, take a walk on the wild side!
Boldness and spontaneity may not be your best-known traits. But over the last seven years, with Uranus in Aries, relationships have taught you a lot about the unpredictability of love and life. And at the start of 2019, you’re ready to take some risks—especially around February 12, when Mars conjuncts Uranus at the last degree of Aries.
Gone are the days of playing the “responsible adult” in relationships, while your partner has all the fun. With Mercury spending two months in your opposite sign of Pisces this year (February 10-April 16, retrograde March 5-28), it’s time to reverse the roles—or at least play around with them a little! You may see your significant other in a whole new light.
Whatever you do though, Virgo, resist the urge to turn them into a fixer-upper project. The “potential” you’re seeing might actually be there, but realizing it is up to them—not you. And with Jupiter squaring Neptune in Pisces three times this year (January 13, June 16, and September 21), it’s easy to lose sight of that.
Saturn in Capricorn helps you keep your idealism in check. But he can also bring out the “all work and no play” tendencies that limit your potential for fun and romance. Instead, let Saturn work for you: Build more free time into your busy schedule, to make space for spontaneity and sexiness. It can be scary to shed your inhibitions… but with Pluto in Capricorn as well, it’s also empowering!
After all, Virgo, if anyone can be trusted to make good decisions, it’s you. So why deny yourself a good time? True, relationships take work—but the fun parts are equally important. Don’t let worries about looking foolish or irresponsible undermine your well-deserved happiness.
By the end of the year, Jupiter will join the party in Capricorn (December 2) and trine Uranus in Taurus (December 15). This, combined with a solar eclipse on December 25, brings amazing opportunities to up your romance game. Enjoy a romantic getaway with your love—or if you’re single, get serious about meeting someone new!
YEAR OF 2019: Being a “team player” isn’t just a cliché that bosses use—for you, Virgo, it’s all in a day’s work. Whether it’s in your job description, or above your pay grade, you’re always ready to lend your coworkers a hand.
But this year, it’s time to cash in some favors! With Mercury sextile Jupiter, Mars, and Uranus around the Aquarius new moon (February 4), the time is right to ask for what you want—whether it’s more control, greater flexibility, or fairer treatment for yourself and your colleagues. With all the goodwill you’ve generated around the office, from coworkers and employers alike, how could anyone refuse?
Just be careful not to squander the good vibes—when Venus in Aquarius squares Mars in Taurus on March 21, you may find yourself involved in an office squabble. Pick your battles wisely, Virgo—at the end of the day, it’s the relationships that make going to work worthwhile.
Still, to keep those relationships working, you’ve got to have boundaries. And from late May through late June, when planets moving through Gemini activate the Jupiter-Neptune square, boundaries can get very blurry with regard to time (“on the clock”/ “off the clock”), space (working/living), and relationships (business/personal).
How will you know where to draw the line, Virgo? By focusing on the things that really matter. And for you, that means something more than money or status: living a well-balanced life. From late September through early November, when Libra planets square Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn and sextile Jupiter in Sagittarius, your definition of work/life balance will lean more toward the “life” side. Use your vacation days, enjoy quality time with family or even some “me” time… you’ve earned it!
With a total lunar eclipse in Leo (January 21), and two full moons in your sign (March 20 and April 19), the first half of 2019 offers plenty of opportunities for self-reflection. Take an honest look at the groups you associate with: Do you genuinely like them? Can you be yourself around them? If not, it’s time to cut ties—but more importantly, to start showing more of your true colors. After all, how else will kindred spirits know where to find you?
Fortunately, with Jupiter in Sagittarius for most of the year, you’ll be eager to share… and two Venus-Jupiter conjunctions (January 22 and November 24) ensure that you’ll find a willing audience. Just make sure you’re speaking your truth—not saying what you think they want to hear. With Jupiter also squaring Neptune in Pisces (January 13, June 16, and September 21), honesty can be a rare and precious commodity.
We know, Libra, “people pleasing” is a hard habit to break… and so is the tendency to second-guess yourself. But the fact is, the less you worry about people liking you, the greater your chances of finding the ones who’ll love you—just the way you are!
And in the meantime, you can take comfort in knowing your own worth. Throughout the year, the “tough love” duo of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn continue to help you thicken your skin and find the strength to be your own authority figure. Three eclipses in Capricorn (solar on January 5 and December 25, lunar on July 16) provide much-needed emotional release, and help you lay the foundations for a more solid support system.
From late September through early November, planets moving through your sign will square Saturn and Pluto. Social conventions may stifle your self-expression—but they can also provide a safe container in which to process complex emotions. Just know when to let your guard down, Libra… with the North Node in Cancer all year, there’s greater strength in vulnerability.
YEAR OF 2019: Easy, breezy, beautiful Libra… It takes a lot to make you lose your cool.
But with both Mars and Uranus in Aries at the start of 2019, your patience is wearing thin—especially with loved ones who seem not to care how their actions affect you. By February 12, when Mars and Uranus meet in the last degree of your opposite sign, something’s got to give. Be direct about how you expect to be treated going forward… and what your dealbreakers are.
After all, Libra, you don’t really need someone else to complete you. So why put up with pointless drama? The Aquarius new moon on February 4, with Mercury sextile Mars and Uranus, is a chance to break the cycle. If you’re looking for love this year, try approaching the dating scene with the carefree detachment you usually reserve for platonic friendships. If you’re already in a relationship, try giving each other more space—with a stubborn square between Venus in Aquarius and Mars in Taurus (March 21), it may be your only option!
On March 6, Uranus moves into Taurus, where he’ll spend the next seven years disrupting the status quo in your sex life. In the past, physical attraction was enough to keep you and your partner connected—but feelings and desires can change. This doesn’t necessarily mean it’s over; it just means you’ll have to get more inventive! Sex isn’t everything, though… so make sure you’ve also got it going on outside the bedroom.
Whatever you do, Libra, don’t take significant others for granted—or you could get some rude awakenings in April and May. You may think you’ve got them figured out, but with the sun, Mercury, and Venus all conjuncting Uranus, they’re likely to surprise you!
In October and November, the same planets (plus Mars) will oppose Uranus from the obsessive sign of Scorpio. Jealousy and possessiveness can rear their ugly heads—but before you go off the deep end, ask yourself what’s really behind these feelings. If you can face the underlying fears and talk about them honestly, you’ll both be better off!
YEAR OF 2019: You’re not in it for the money, Libra… your work is a labor of love. Still, you wouldn’t do it if there weren’t something in it for you—ideally, both material and spiritual rewards.
With Mercury in Pisces for two months this spring (February 10-April 16), your job situation inspires some serious soul-searching. Neptune is also in Pisces all year, and his squares with Jupiter (January 13, June 16, and September 21) can reveal a stark contrast between your “dream job” and the reality of your routine. At the end of the day, though, any job will have some aspect you don’t like—so don’t leave yours unless there’s really somewhere better to go.
If you do choose a new path, the Cancer solar eclipse on July 2 is a great time for first steps. Still, for every step forward this summer, you may feel you’re taking two steps back.
From June 14-19, a Mercury-Mars conjunction in Cancer opposes retrograde Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. Between career goals and family responsibilities, there’s a lot on your plate. Look for ways to lighten your load, possibly by delegating more at home. After all, if you succeed, your family does too!
From July 19-31, retrograde Mercury backtracks into Cancer. Take this opportunity to evaluate the progress you’ve made so far, and get clear on what remains to be done. But be gentle with yourself, Libra—you’re doing your best!
Willpower and resourcefulness are two of your greatest assets. And with Mercury spending extra time in Scorpio this fall (October 3-December 9), you’ll have plenty of chances to use them. Uranus in the opposite sign of Taurus may cut you off from old, reliable sources of support—but don’t worry, Libra, you got this! Drawing upon your own resources will only make you stronger.
You’ve never been the most talkative sign. But Pluto just keeps digging up truths that demand to be expressed! Fortunately, disciplined Saturn helps you collect your thoughts and choose your words carefully, for maximum impact.
True, sometimes there are no words to express what you’re thinking or feeling—but this year, you owe it to yourself to at least try. After all, you’ve learned a lot about yourself in the last few years… and now it’s time to share some of that hard-earned wisdom with others.
Besides, Scorpio, let’s be real: You’ve still got a few things to learn!
Admitting what you don’t know can make you feel vulnerable—but with the North Node in Cancer all year, it’ll ultimately make you stronger. All three of this year’s solar eclipses (January 5, July 2, and December 25) take place along the Capricorn/Cancer axis, empowering you to break down barriers and connect with others who’ll help you broaden your intellectual and spiritual horizons.
We know you don’t usually think of yourself as a “joiner”… but maybe it’s time to change that? After all, a group of like-minded people can get a lot farther together than they would on their own. Consider this at the new moon on August 30, when five planets in Virgo (moon, sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) join forces with Saturn, Pluto, and Uranus in a powerful Grand Earth Trine.
With Mercury in your sign for two months this fall (October 3-December 9, retrograde October 31-November 20), and a new moon in your sign opposite Uranus on October 27, you’ll be more eager than usual to put yourself out there. You don’t have to put all your cards on the table—but if you really want people to understand you, you’ve got to give them something to go on.
After all, Scorpio… isn’t it time your “circle of trust” got a little wider?
YEAR OF 2019: You’ve always been a soldier of love, Scorpio. But with Uranus marching into your opposite sign on March 6 and staying there until 2026, it’s time to join the revolution!
Uranus in Taurus is all about overturning the status quo in your relationships. If you’re looking for love, the people you attract (or feel attracted to) this year may surprise you. Maybe it’s just for fun… or maybe it’s signaling a shift in priorities?
If you’re in a relationship, shakeups, wakeups, and even breakups are possible. But this transit can also inspire innovative solutions to your most persistent problems—jealousy, possessiveness, intimacy issues, you name it. After all, Scorpio, loyal lovers like you have to fight to keep your love alive. And there’s no one better than Uranus to break you out of a relationship rut!
In April and May, as the sun, Mercury, and Venus meet up with Uranus, unexpected revelations from or about your partner can cause you to see them in a different light. And they’re likely to feel the same in October and November, when those planets plus Mars (in your sign) oppose Uranus. Just make sure you’re not projecting your own stuff onto each other.
After all, boundaries can be an issue for you—especially with Neptune still in his home sign of Pisces. And Jupiter’s three squares with Neptune (January 13, June 16, and September 21) only amplify your tendency to blur the lines.
Mercury’s extended stay in Pisces (February 10-April 16) opens up the lines of compassionate communication. But it also encourages seductive sweet-talk, which may or may not be truthful. Be careful not to get—or give—the wrong idea, especially while Mercury is retrograde (March 5-28).
By October, when Mercury and Venus in your sign trine Neptune in Pisces, you and your significant other are more likely to be on the same wavelength. It’s a great time to merge your creative energies and channel them into a shared vision—ideally, one that extends beyond the two of you and your own little world.
YEAR OF 2019: It’s not just what you do, Scorpio—it’s who you are.
But after seven years of Uranus in Aries, “what you do” and “who you are” may not be easy to define. Whether or not you’ve changed jobs, working conditions have been a little chaotic. And by the start of 2019, you’re ready for a break!
Fortunately, one is coming—but first, you’ll have to power through a few more crazy weeks, with Mars and Uranus both in Aries and colliding at the last degree on February 12. Think of this as “crunch time” for tying up unfinished business or making last-minute moves. After March 6, when Uranus moves into Taurus, things should settle down into something relatively stable.
Another factor in the career chaos has been the Leo eclipses, starting back in 2017. But at the lunar eclipse on January 20, this game-changing chapter comes to a close. Say your last goodbyes to an old dream, goal, or project—completed or not—and set your sights in a new direction. Mercury’s two passes through Leo this summer (June 26-July 19 and August 11-29) give you extra time to envision what that might be.
You’ve made it through some turbulent times, Scorpio—and with Jupiter in Sagittarius for most of this year, well-earned rewards are coming your way! Yes, that could mean more money. But as Venus conjuncts Jupiter on January 22 and November 24, it also means greater feelings of abundance, gratitude, and self-worth—so don’t focus so much on money that you miss the big picture.
Anyway, with Jupiter squaring Neptune three times (January 13, June 16, and September 21), you may not be so clear-headed about money matters this year. On December 2, Jupiter moves into thrifty Capricorn—so if you want to make the good times last, try to stay within your budget!
Jupiter (your ruling planet) brings out the best and worst of whatever sign he’s in. Still, his two conjunctions with Venus this year (January 22 and November 24) mean that in true Sagittarian fashion, you’ll be playing up the positives: optimism, enthusiasm, open-mindedness, honesty, and a wicked sense of adventure!
Just don’t let it go to your head—with Jupiter squaring Neptune in Pisces throughout the year (January 13, June 16, and September 21), delusions of grandeur are a potential side effect. So, on the other hand, is “impostor complex.” The challenge is to see yourself in not too positive or negative a light—and love yourself as you truly are.
Our upbringing has a major effect on how we see ourselves. But for you, Sag, family or cultural expectations of who you “should” be may no longer apply. You’ll have plenty of time to ponder this during Mercury’s extended time in Pisces (February 10-April 16, retrograde March 5-28). But look for ways to honor your roots, even as you spread your wings.
Who are you, really? There’s no easy answer—but with Mercury also spending extra time in Scorpio (October 3-December 9, retrograde October 31-November 20), questions like these keep bubbling up. The answers won’t be found “out there;” they’ll only be found within. Still, you don’t have to solve the mystery all on your own. Whether it’s a friend, a counselor, or even an astrologer, talking to someone you trust can be a big help!
But you’ll also need to walk the walk. With Jupiter in your sign and Uranus in Taurus, a tendency to overdo it this year can bring unwanted health surprises like weight gain, illness, or injury—so try to establish some healthy routines that keep you grounded and maintain wellbeing for your body, mind, and spirit.
After all, Sag, you’re only human—so if you really want to “live your best life” in 2019, you’ll need to honor your own limits!
YEAR OF 2019: You’re really feeling yourself this year, Sag—and with two Venus-Jupiter conjunctions in your sign (January 22 and November 24), everyone else is, too!
Still, it’s possible to take the self-esteem a little too far… especially in the early weeks of 2019, which find aggressive Mars on his home turf in Aries. You’ll know exactly what you want, but coming on too strong could make it harder to get—especially around February 12, when Mars and Uranus collide at the last degree. Remember, sometimes good things do come to those who wait.
Love goddess Venus will be feisty and fearless in Aries from April 20-May 15, making this a perfect time to take a chance on love. Just keep the focus on fun, and don’t rush into anything serious just yet—what seems like a perfect match in the heat of the moment may not have long-term potential.
After all, what you’re really looking for in a partner is your intellectual equal—and for you, Sag, that’s a pretty tall order! Fortunately, with Venus transiting your opposite sign of Gemini this summer (June 8-July 3), the stage is set for a meeting of the minds. In the eagerness to share your interests, though, you might get a little overbearing—so make sure your significant other finds the subject as fascinating as you do.
On June 23 and 24, Venus in Gemini activates the square between Jupiter in your sign and Neptune in Pisces. It can be easy to forget where you end and your partner begins. Use Neptune’s empathy and compassion to tune in to their feelings, desires, and needs—rather than projecting your own onto them.
After all, with the North Node in Cancer all year, sensitivity is an absolute must—and supportive, nurturing relationships provide major opportunities for personal growth. For a free spirit like you, it can be scary to let someone else take care of you. But don’t worry too much about losing your independence, Sag—when you know how to support yourself, you never have to settle for less than your heart’s desire!
YEAR OF 2019: You’re a weekend warrior, Sag—but when it comes to your 9 to 5, you’d rather not rock the boat.
Unfortunately, with Uranus crashing into your house of work on March 6 (and staying there until 2026), change is inevitable… and often unpredictable. You can either work with it, or against it.
Whether you’ve stayed too long in a “dead-end” job or toxic workplace, or avoided embracing new technologies, chances are you’re resisting some long-overdue change. Harness the power of Uranus in Taurus to break free from your daily grind!
The new moon on August 30 is the perfect time to plant the seeds of a new business venture. Five Virgo planets (moon, sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) will form a Grand Earth Trine with Uranus in Taurus and Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn—linking all three of your career houses in a supportive network.
We know you’ve got the vision, Sag—but you’ll also need to have a plan. Working out the details may feel like a drag, but try to trust—and enjoy—the process. Think of it as laying the groundwork for future success, one brick at a time.
After all, with taskmaster Saturn in his home sign of Capricorn for the entire year, it’s all about diligence and discipline—especially where money management is concerned. Pluto is still in Capricorn as well, forcing you to dig deep and be as resourceful as possible. If you experience financial setbacks or limitations this year, take them as learning opportunities that’ll ultimately put you in a more empowered position.
Three eclipses in Capricorn (solar on January 5 and December 25, lunar on July 16) make 2019 a potentially transformative year for your finances. But for now, Sag, stick to your budget and keep your eye on the prize!
But with Saturn and Pluto staying put in your sign, the load won’t get any lighter in 2019… unless, that is, you learn to honor your own limits. Some burdens are rightfully yours, but if you’ve taken on responsibilities that don’t belong to you, it’s time to take them off your plate.
That’s easier said than done, especially with the South Node (also in your sign) amping up your workaholic ways. Fortunately, three eclipses in your sign (solar January 5 and December 25, lunar July 16) reveal these self-punishing habits for what they are, and help you let them go.
After all, Capricorn, we know that somewhere beneath the stern exterior, there’s a sense of humor just dying to come out and play! And this year, with Jupiter in Sagittarius, you’re feeling more playful—and hopeful—than ever. Venus conjuncts Jupiter twice this year (January 22 and November 24), giving you reason to believe that whatever happens, it’s all for the best.
True, with Jupiter also squaring Neptune in Pisces this year (January 13, June 16, and September 21), Pollyannaish optimism is something to watch out for. But you’re also tapping into deep inner sources of wisdom and love—and that’s something you can trust!
Let your intuition be your guide, especially during Mercury’s extended stay in Pisces (February 10-April 16). If you’ve got any major decisions to make, though, be sure logic gets a seat at the table—Mercury’s retrograde from March 5-28 can make critical thinking a challenge.
“Logical” or “practical” concerns often weigh you down, Capricorn. But with Uranus entering Taurus on March 6, this year you’re ready to shake them off and have some fun!
It’ll take some time, effort, and careful planning to make it work. But by the Virgo new moon on August 30, the conditions are right to begin a new adventure. With a Grand Earth Trine at this new moon—including five planets in Virgo, Uranus in Taurus, and Saturn and Pluto in your sign—freedom and responsibility go hand in hand.
YEAR OF 2019: Someone’s got to be the “adult in the room,” Capricorn—but when that person is always you, it really puts a damper on your love life.
Fortunately, Uranus in Aries has brought some seismic shifts in your private life that gave you a lot more freedom and space to do your thing. And with Uranus changing signs on March 6 (energized by a conjunction with Mars in Aries’ last degree on February 12), you’re about to get your groove on!
True, when it comes to romance, you tend to play it safe—but Uranus in Taurus will stop at nothing to lure you out of your comfort zone. Chance encounters, intriguing invitations, and opportunities to show off your sexy side… Get ready for all this and more, especially between April 22 and May 18 (that’s when the sun, Mercury, and Venus take turns hooking up with Uranus)!
The same planets, plus Mars, will oppose Uranus during Scorpio season (October 7-November 24). New connections sparked in the spring could have a future… but don’t be in such a hurry to lock things down. Enjoy living in the heat of the moment… even if that makes you sweat a little!
The total solar eclipse in Cancer on July 2 brings new beginnings in relationships—whether it’s a brand-new love story, or simply a new chapter. Whatever happens in your love life this year, though, one thing’s for sure: with the North Node also in Cancer, you’ll need to get in touch with your sensitive side. After all, Capricorn, what good is being in love if you can’t let your feelings show?
Mercury spends the summer going back and forth between Cancer and Leo, making it time for some serious heart-to-hearts. What do you and your partner really need from each other—and how much are you willing to give?
Common ground may be hard to find, with a Mercury-Mars conjunction in Cancer opposite Saturn and Pluto in your sign (June 14-19). But don’t be afraid to try again—on July 8, retrograde Mercury reconnects with Mars in fiercely loving Leo!
YEAR OF 2019: Money is no joke, Capricorn—but you know better than to take it too seriously.
The Leo/Aquarius eclipses of 2017-2018 brought some financial ups and downs, which required you to “think outside the box” and find creative ways to provide for yourself. Old, reliable income streams may have dried up, but this cleared the way for new opportunities to start flowing in. And in the meantime, you’ve learned how to stretch your dollar, and draw upon your impressive inner resources.
All these gifts should come in handy around the Aquarius new moon on February 4, when Mercury (also in Aquarius) sextiles Jupiter, Mars, and Uranus. Some unexpected expenses may pop up—possibly related to home or family—but try to take them in stride. With Venus in Aquarius square Mars in Taurus on March 21, it may be a choice between “seizing the day” and “saving for a rainy day.”
Still, Capricorn, if anyone can do both, our money is on you. Money management is just one part of a very diverse skill set—and the spring of 2019 provides plenty of opportunities to show off your range at work! Just make sure it’s not a thankless task. Between April 27 and June 24, inner planets traveling through Gemini will activate the Jupiter-Neptune square, making it a very fine line between service and self-martyrdom.
After all, Capricorn, you don’t need any encouragement for your workaholic tendencies—you’re way harder on yourself than any boss could ever be. And with planets in Libra squaring Saturn and Pluto in your sign from late September to early November, the need for work-life balance is something we can’t stress enough.
No, there’s nothing wrong with a little ambition. But this year, there’s a whole lot more to life than striving for success.
Still, your best kept secret is that you actually crave structure. You’d just rather create a system that works for you than conform to someone else’s. Remember, though: it takes more discipline to be different.
Over the last seven years, Uranus in Aries has stirred up a lot of controversy, both personal and political. And you haven’t been shy about speaking your mind—even if it’s alienated some of the people closest to you. Tempers have flared up and burnt out pretty quickly… but the long-term consequences for your relationships remain to be seen.
Once Uranus moves into Taurus on March 6, the cracks begin to show. And by the time Venus in your sign squares Mars in Taurus (March 21), you could finally reach your breaking point. Family members may never see eye-to-eye—but if they don’t get you, Aquarius, somebody out there will!
With Uranus in your fourth house, the next seven years could radically reinvent what “home,” “family,” and “belonging” mean to you. And at the Virgo new moon on August 30, a Grand Earth Trine (which includes Uranus) helps you put down roots for a new kind of tribe. The moon, sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars in Virgo bring healing for old trauma through mutually supportive relationships that simplify your life. And Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn give you the strength to live with the courage of your convictions.
The best news of all, Aquarius? With Jupiter spending most of the year in Sagittarius (your eleventh house of community) you won’t have to do it alone! Two Venus-Jupiter conjunctions (January 22 and November 24) bring ample opportunity to connect with other visionaries like you. And Jupiter’s squares to Neptune (January 13, June 16, and September 21) challenge you to transcend your differences and find common ground—just make sure you’re not selling out on the values you cherish most.
YEAR OF 2019: Over the last two years, eclipses in your sign and the opposite sign of Leo have put you through some major relationship rites of passage. Whether it brought painful endings, joyful new beginnings, or both, one thing’s for sure: after this, Aquarius, you’ll never look at love in quite the same way again.
The Leo lunar eclipse on January 20 brings this chapter of your love story to its logical conclusion. And by the new moon in Leo on July 31—the same day Mercury stations direct—you’ll be ready to start writing the next one!
Mercury spends the summer going back and forth between Cancer and Leo. In each of these signs, he’ll meet up with action-oriented Mars (June 18 and July 8), driving home the message that love is a verb. We all need to hear “I love you” now and then, but actions speak louder than words—and it’s the little things you do for each other every day that add up to a truly great romance. What has your partner done for you lately, Aquarius? And what can you do to show them you’re the real deal?
Keeping it real can be a bit of a challenge this year, with Jupiter in Sagittarius square Neptune in Pisces (January 13, June 16, and September 21). And in June, Venus in Gemini throws more fuel on the fire! Her aspects to Jupiter and Neptune on the twenty-third and twenty-fourth have you feeling fun and flirty… but the attraction may be quick to fizzle out. Even if you’re head-over-heels, a night out with friends sounds a lot more exciting than a quiet evening in.
The tables are turned in Virgo season, when a Venus-Mars conjunction (August 24) opposes Neptune and squares Jupiter. This time, it could be a case of “all work and no play.” Yes, relationships do take work… and when Venus and Mars team up, there’s nothing they can’t do. But if love isn’t fun, Aquarius, you’re doing it wrong—so make sure playtime is also a priority!
YEAR OF 2019: You’re a spirit in the material world, Aquarius—but there’s no avoiding money matters in 2019.
After all, with Neptune still in Pisces, cash flow is “easy come, easy go.” And three Jupiter-Neptune squares (January 13, June 16, and September 21) make it even more tempting to live beyond your means.
Fortunately, Mercury will be spending two months in Pisces (your second house of finance), giving you plenty of time to balance your checkbook. From February 10-April 16, try keeping a money diary to track your expenses. If the numbers don’t add up, use Mercury’s retrograde (March 5-28) to rework your budget.
Mercury goes retrograde three times this year—and for better or worse, Aquarius, all three happen in career and money houses. Progress may be slow, but with the North Node in Cancer (your sixth house of work), trust that things are moving in the right direction.
The total solar eclipse in Cancer (July 2) could signal a new direction. Still, with Mercury retrograde for most of July, it’s probably too soon to switch jobs. Update your resume and brush up your interviewing skills, so you’ll be ready to seize your moment when the time comes.
Mercury conjuncts Mars twice this summer: once in Cancer, opposite Saturn and Pluto (June 18) and once in Leo (July 8). If you’ve been complaining about the same work problems forever, it’s time to put your money where your mouth is!
There’ll be no more time to waste once Mercury settles into Scorpio (October 3-December 9, retrograde October 31-November 20). With Mercury and other inner planets opposing Uranus, constant interruptions make it hard to keep your eye on the prize. But they’re also a reminder of the need for work/life balance.
Yes, Aquarius, you can have it all… as long as you remember success isn’t “all-or-nothing.”
Jupiter in Sagittarius raises your profile, and his two conjunctions with Venus (January 22 and November 24) mean that most of the attention is positive. But this can be at odds with how you see yourself—especially if Neptune’s clouding your vision.
Fortunately, Mercury spends two months in your sign this year (February 10-April 16, retrograde March 5-28), giving you plenty of time to see yourself more clearly… and compassionately.
Self-awareness is key in May and June, when Gemini planets activate the Jupiter-Neptune square. Between your private life and your public persona, there’s some sort of disconnect—and it’s up to you to bridge the gap.
After all, your circumstances are shifting this year… so like it or not, you’ll have to shift along with them. With Uranus moving into Taurus on March 6 (and staying until 2026), “fish-out-of-water” situations could become your new normal.
But there’s nothing to fear… even if Mercury’s deep dive into Scorpio (October 3-December 9) has you wondering who or what to trust. With Mercury trine Neptune, it’s easy to get a little paranoid—just make sure to examine your own motives as much as you question other people’s.
You promised yourself you’d never “sell out.” And Pisces, we know your intentions are pure. But even if conventional measures of success don’t carry much weight, sometimes you’ve still got to play the game. And with Saturn, Pluto, and the South Node in ambitious Capricorn, there’s no way around it: this year, you’ve got to be in it to win it!
Discipline and hard work are the real keys to success—but it also helps to know the right people. And two solar eclipses in Capricorn (January 5 and December 25) can put you in touch with them. So put your best foot forward, Pisces… your vibe attracts your tribe!
YEAR OF 2019: Caring, considerate, creative… Pisces, you’re quite the catch!
So what’s standing between you and romance? Shyness may have something to do with it—but with the North Node in Cancer all year, there’ll be plenty of enticements to come out of your shell. You may feel awkward showing your softer side, but trust us, vulnerable is sexy in 2019.
If that’s not enough of a confidence booster, just wait for the summer, when two Mercury-Mars conjunctions embolden you to express your true feelings and go for your heart’s desire. The Cancer conjunction on June 18 opposes retrograde Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, but don’t let fear of rejection hold you back—you’ve got way too much to offer!
You’ll get a second chance when Mercury backtracks into Cancer, July 19-August 11. But choose your words carefully, because with Mercury retrograde for most of July, feelings will be a little fragile. If misunderstandings arise, try not to overreact… or go to bed angry. Own up to hurt feelings, and at least give the other person a chance to make it better.
Relationships require attention around the Virgo new moon on August 30, with five planets in your opposite sign (including a Venus-Mars conjunction, exact on the twenty-fourth). These Virgo planets activate the Jupiter-Neptune square, putting your own self-image and goals at odds with a partner’s expectations.
Fortunately, the Virgo stellium also forms a Grand Earth Trine with Uranus, Saturn, and Pluto. Relationships can bring out the best in you—as long as you’re both keeping it real. Love each other, not just for who you could be, but for who you are.
After all, Pisces, as much as you may look to a partner to “balance you out,” you can’t depend on them for everything—that’s way too much pressure!
And you’ll be more aware of this from late September through early November, when planets in Libra square Saturn and Pluto. But don’t despair—if your partner doesn’t share all your interests, try reaching out to some like-minded friends. Socializing with other people, both separately and together, can only make you stronger!
YEAR OF 2019: Follow the money, or follow your bliss? Lucky for you, Pisces, this year you won’t have to choose.
With Jupiter and Venus meeting up in your career house (January 22 and November 24), good things are coming your way… and you’ve earned every single one of them! After all, dreamers like you aren’t always encouraged to succeed—but you’ve kept the faith and kept your eye on the prize.
Still, with Jupiter in Sagittarius square Neptune in your sign (January 13, June 16, and September 21), try not to indulge in too much magical thinking. We love vision boards and affirmations too—but at the end of the day, Pisces, there’s no substitute for hard work.
Fortunately, whether it’s your main gig or a side hustle, you’re deeply devoted to practicing your craft. Over the last two years, a series of eclipses in Leo has cleared away the obstacles that kept you from pursuing it—and by the last one on January 20, nothing’s standing in your way. Mercury visits Leo twice this summer (June 26-July 19 and August 11-29), making it a great time to overcome your insecurities and let your work speak for itself.
Over the last seven years, Uranus in Aries has brought a lot of financial ups and downs. And the beginning of 2019 can find you still in “fight or flight” mode—especially between January 21 and February 1, when Mars in Aries squares Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn.
Fortunately, after Mars’ conjunction with Uranus in the last degree of Aries (February 12) and Uranus’ entry into Taurus (March 6), there’ll be fewer financial fires to put out—and you can afford to take a more methodical approach to money management. It’s time to look at the big picture, Pisces, and start investing in the future!
