Action and progress are promised throughout 2019 as your patron planet Mars covers a larger portion of the sky than he did last year. Mars on the move can boost your drive, motivation and confidence. You’re poised to tackle many more challenges this year. As Mars charges through the zodiac, your attention may turn toward a variety of options as a smorgasbord of opportunities present themselves. A final link between Mars and Uranus in your sign on February 13 may bring exciting personal developments as the need for authenticity becomes harder to ignore. Uranus in Aries until March 6 is a last-chance call to take the path less travelled and tie up loose ends surrounding events that began around 2010. An exciting opportunity to widen your breadth of experience will be a fundamental theme throughout the year.
Planetary maverick Uranus re-enters your 2nd house of money from March 6 and will remain until 2026. Under Uranus’ influence, your cash fl ow and access to resources might begin to show a few signs of instability, especially if a new business or sideline project is in its early stages of growth, or you’re a newbie in your chosen industry.
A breakthrough around money is possible when Venus and Uranus combine on May 18. A Full Moon illuminates your money axis on May 19, prompting the need to make important financial decisions. You might feel torn between making a bold money move or erring on the side of caution. With a variety of planetary factors throughout May, it may be a case of taking old money traditions and reinventing them to reflect the financial abundance you want to attract. You may be keen to explore new options to save or invest once Mercury dives into Scorpio on October 4. Thanks to a retrograde period from November 1–19, money matters may take a one step forward, two steps back feel then. Mercury’s curious nature will prompt you to take a deep dive into your finances and get clear about what you own and what you owe, especially if you increased your debt last year.
If you share finances with a partner, either in life or in business, going through the finer points of money, debts, savings and your joint long-term money goals will be ideal. Facts may seem foggy as Mercury and Neptune work together three times. October 16, November 14 and 28 are highlighted to take extra caution around committing to anything where the details are unclear, or a deal seems too good to be true. If you feel overwhelmed or confused, take a step back from the situation until the fog clears during the first week of December.
Excitement, progress and profound change within your home life is possible as the North Node of the Moon occupies your family sector. This karmic influence may remind you of how important family is for you — either the one you’re from or the one you have, or even yet to create. While not directly activating your home zone, a lunar eclipse on January 21 could offer you some insight about how your domestic life is set to change.
You might become aware of your need to make provisions for your children, grandchildren, or the possibility of them down the track. This eclipse can invite you to follow your heart in a creative pursuit at this time. Brilliant ideas and insights are possible and what may seem like a crazy idea at first, is cosmically supported thanks to Venus and Jupiter aligning at the same time. Your personal focus is at home while Mars tours Cancer from May 17–July 2.
Despite your best efforts, it may not be until the eclipse on July 3 takes effect that you start to see the possibilities for growth and change you’ve been working toward. With so much activity on the home front then, some of your professional projects may need to take a back seat. As your cosmic compass shifts towards your home life, you can expect that’s where you’ll be spending more of your time and energy. Your home may become a place of comfort for your special people and you’ll become a source of support and strength for those you love.
The Full Moon eclipse on July 17 will trigger your professional zone and bring up the seemingly impossible issue of work/life balance. With powerful Pluto in the mix, you may see your professional role in a new light, especially if power plays, drama or politics are subtracting from your happiness or keeping you from quality time with family. Schedule some down time during the eclipse period to make room for inspired guidance and allow your intuition to take hold. Your inner voice and support from your loved ones will show you the best way forward.
Mid-September – October see the regular cycles of the Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars light up your relationship sector. This will be your busiest relationship period where togetherness and partnership are highlighted. Whether single or partnered, the New Moon on September 29 can bring hopeful new beginnings in love or inject a fresh new vibe into an existing relationship. With a plethora of planets in Libra then, seeking balance is your key to relationship success.
Communication is highlighted then too as Mercury aligns with a lucky fixed star under the New Moon. Your partner may express themselves with more confidence, requiring you to listen and recognise their needs. Speaking of confidence, your ruler Mars activates your partnership zone for the first time in 2 years. From October 5 – November 20, you can step up in a relationship matter and steer things in a new direction. October 28 and November 4/5 may bring tension or conflict where being crystal clear and honest about your love needs can bring new levels of intimacy and commitment.
Your career has been top priority since Saturn’s entry into Capricorn back in December 2017. However, things may begin to change this year as the karmic South Node activates your professional sphere, prompting you to ask some big questions about your life direction. Whether you feel you’ve bitten off more than you can chew or the weight of responsibility is sapping your soul, three potent eclipses may present new professional opportunities. The new year begins with a solar eclipse alongside the South Node on January 6. An out of the blue job offer may invite you to consider your options and the career path you’re currently on.
With so much planetary activity in your 10th house of professional reputation, you may feel catapulted into the spotlight or more visible than usual. Eclipses have a way of bringing future possibilities into the present. You may need to question whether a new offer is aligned with your authentic self and the level of compromise or sacrifice you’re willing to make. With planetary powerhouses Saturn and Pluto up close and personal with this eclipse, you’ll likely be feeling the pressure to make the right choice. Inspiration, support and abundance are yours to tap into from January 17-26 as Venus and Jupiter interact with your ruler, Mars. Chasing your dreams can make the seemingly impossible, possible.
With Mars in your own sign until February 14, you may feel restless or need increased levels of freedom while you explore options that feel right for you. Big decisions may loom again mid-year as a lunar eclipse spotlights your career sector on July 17, this time with much more clarity. If you’re feeling restricted or limited professionally, opting for a role that increases your visibility, global significance or leadership qualities might be the way to go. As you reflect on 2019, it may feel a little bit like professional testing ground.
Abundant new opportunities present in December once generous Jupiter enters Capricorn on the 3rd and aligns with another eclipse on the 26th, offering the promise of new possibilities into 2020.
You’re ready to go full-steam ahead as 2019 begins thanks to your patron planet making waves in your own sign until February 14. Motivation to kickstart a fitness program and generally take better care of your body, mind and spirit will be heightened then. Mid-February may see an overload of energy that will need an outlet.
Focusing on what truly speaks to your spirit will be vital. A personal breakthrough is possible as Mars and Uranus align for the final time in your sign in 84 years. You may finally cut ties with tradition and choose to follow an unconventional path. Themes of health and wellness and authenticity are activated again from August 31–September 2. Purging and purifying will be a hot topic now.
Spring cleaning everything from your pantry, work space as well as your schedule can help you narrow in your focus on what is truly important to you. A New Moon on August 30 can inspire a fresh start by incorporating healthier habits into your life. Expressive Mercury in Aries from April 17–May 7 promotes your communication skills and you may even find it a little easier to network or mingle with others. With Venus’ sweet influence from April 21–May 15, you may discover you’ll have an easier time to get others on board with your ideas than usual.
The month of August will deliver some of your happiest moments of the year. A New Moon on August 1 promises a sudden or surprising turn of events or welcome news in respect to children. A creative outlet may gain the traction you’ve been hoping for. With Venus in the mix and making links to abundant Jupiter, anything you touch can turn to gold then. You may be reminded of an old hobby or passion that captures your heart, especially from July 7 – 19 as Mercury makes a brief reverse tour through your 5th house. Choosing to temporarily withdraw from social engagements during that time can allow for you to reunite with what truly brings you joy. Your social life may pick up where it left off from late June on August 12 when Mercury’s passage through your fun sector is uninhibited. The Full Moon on August 15 is your time to shine. In super close contact with Venus, this lunation can inspire new friendships or invigorate old ones.
Thanks to Jupiter’s entry into Sagittarius in late 2018, some of your biggest areas for growth and opportunity happen in your 9th sector. Travel, study, teaching and philosophy are areas which may peak your interest and invite exploration and expansion until December 3.
Like a horse behind the gate, you’ll be restless for new experiences so saying yes to adventures will be a must. Whether your spirit craves airport terminals and frequent flyer points or you prefer the open road, no horizon is too far or too wide this year. Adventures of the mind may also beckon.
Jupiter invites you to explore knowledge and meaning, prompting you to take a course of study or begin to impart your wisdom to others about a subject that interests you. Stretching your ideas around what you think is possible will be a signature theme. While you’ll be enthusiastic to see how far an open mind can take you, links from nebulous Neptune may dull your spirit as you ponder some big life questions. January 12-17, June 15-22 and September 22 will challenge you to dive into and surrender into an experience that can change your life.
A Lunar Eclipse on January 21 will bookend a 2-year journey that revealed many insights around your most authentic connections with friends, colleagues and your social networks. Long-term friends may have faded into the background, while newer connections stepped up and endeared themselves to you. Venus, the planet of friendship and support visits Aquarius and your friends zone twice this year. March 2 – 27 and December 21- January 13 2020 will bring a double dose of kindred spirits, where your connections both personally and professionally will be key components in materialising your hopes and wishes for the year.
Downtime or extra space for rest and retreat is highlighted in February and March. Mercury enters Pisces and your 12th sector on February 12 where, the first pangs of needing serenity and peace may be felt. Time and space may be required to process the Saturn/Neptune link from January 24 – February 1, where figuring a way to align your soul needs with your professional standing is possible. March 5-27 sees Mercury backtrack where you may be keen to research new ideas about spirituality or plan a long-needed holiday.
Adopting a go-slow strategy will be vital then and it will be important to not bite off more than you can chew. Once Mercury picks up the pace again from March 28 and continues through your retreat sector until April 17, you’ll be able to action any new ideas or insights about how to integrate your responsibilities with your need to rest.
