Monthly General Horoscopes - January 2019
2019 gets off to the best possible start for you, so much so that this will not be a case of one year slipping unchanged into the next. The difference between 2018 and 2019 is so stark, that for the first time in a long time this will feel like a real change. You can thank Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos and your ruling planet for that, with his return to Aries on New Year's Day a game changer. Mars spent the last six weeks of 2018 in a nostalgic, reflective but also intuitive and imaginative part of your chart, winding down a nearly two year long Mars cycle. This is a time when you are often running on empty, creating a situation where you may have run out of fuel long before you ran out of year. Mars' return to Aries on New Year's Day will see your tanks filled and your energy levels restocked, within hours of moving into the New Year and this is no blimp. With Mars here for the first six weeks of 2019, this gets the year off to an impassioned start, but also one where you're ready to take your power back from the get go. This gives you the confidence to do things your way. With the year getting off to a powerful start professionally, this allows you to channel Mars' influence into firing up your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit. Yet for the first time in 12 years, you not only start the year with Jupiter in an adventurous part of your chart, but with the planet of luck and expansion here for all but the final weeks of 2019. With a total lunar eclipse in a playful part of your chart on 21st January, Mars will also fuel a passion for adventure, along with your romantic and creative passions.
Starting the year with the Sun in your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery is the norm for you, always has been and always will. While the Sun is only here until 20th January and Mercury from 5th January to 24th January, with Saturn and Pluto here all year and a solar eclipse here on 6th January, a strong adventurous influence and a focus on adventure, travel, learning and discovery will continue all year. While the Sun won't return to your career sector until 20th January, even then this is one year when life won't become all work and no play. You may find that the wind is taken out of your sails almost immediately after moving into the New Year, as if suddenly realising you are in need for time out. While that is the case, what you're feeling is Mars' return to a nostalgic, reflective but also intuitive and imaginative part of your chart, where he will spend the first six weeks of 2019. This is preparation for Mars' return to Taurus next month and with Uranus returning weeks later and therefore major new beginnings ahead, this is a valuable chance to pull back. In the meantime, the year gets off to a good start on the financial front. Lucky Jupiter returned to your financial sector in November and while Mercury is here until 5th January, giving you a smart head for money from the get go, the real magic happens when Venus returns on 8th January. This is the first time that the planets of luck and money have met up in your financial sector in 12 years and with 2019 an opportune year for financial growth, this is when you should start to see some evidence. There could also be some good things happening on the home front, especially around 21st January.
There are some fairly significant shifts in focus in the early days of the month. The year begins with Mars in your career sector, Venus in your work sector and with the momentum from a Full Moon in your income sector just before Christmas. Yet while this gives your new professional and financial years a head start and provides some real momentum across the income, work and career fronts, this focus will dial back. Mars will leave your career sector on New Year's Day and Venus will leave your work sector a week later. Yet while their departure will take away the urgency and the need to have your work and professional hats on 24/7, there is still plenty of momentum across the income, work and career fronts. Venus and Mars spent most of December working as a team and that will continue, even after they move on. Mars will return to your friendship sector on New Year's Day and Venus will return to your relationship sector a week later. Where they had worked together to support job and career matters, they shift focus this month to support friendship and relationship building. Both will benefit from a lunar eclipse in your communication sector on 21st January. Venus will join Jupiter in your relationship sector, with the planets of love and luck teaming up here for the first time in 12 years. While Venus is only here until early next month, Jupiter is here until December, giving this auspicious year for relationship matters a head start. At the same time, while the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of the year in an adventurous part of your chart, a focus on adventure, travel, learning and discovery will continue all year as well. The days of all work and no play are over.
There is a real contradiction in what the stars are telling you this month, but little or no conflict. January is destined to be a stunning month for income, work and career matters, with an explosion of potential across all three fronts. Yet you also begin the year with a strong mix of playful and adventurous forces in play, that seem oblivious to what is happening professionally. If the stars think you can have it all, then maybe you can, especially if you master a balance between work and play. Fortunately, you start the month with the Moon, Venus and Ceres in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. While Mars will not only leave an adventurous part of your chart on New Year's Day but return to your career sector, on both the playful and adventurous fronts there is back up. That will remain the case even after Venus leaves and returns to your work sector on 8th January, just as Mars is firing things up on the career front. A total lunar eclipse in your income sector on 21st January will act as a trigger for potential that has been building across the income, work and career fronts for years. January is a month when the focus is always on your relationships, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks in your relationship sector. However, for the first time in 17 years, you begin the year with the North Node in Cancer and it is here all year. This is already policing a balance between your personal and relationship needs. Mercury, the planet of communication's return to your relationship sector on 5th January will go a long way towards ensuring the communication lines are open, ahead of a solar eclipse here on 6th January.
The year always begins on a busy note for you, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of January in your work sector. With a solar eclipse here on 6th January the tip of a very large iceberg, with some seriously powerful and busy planets in play on the job front, there is every reason to assume that life will soon become all work and no play. Yet while Jupiter will not want to get in the way of any real opportunities and developments on the job front, from his position in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, the planet of luck and expansion is acting as the fun police. Jupiter is not only the planet of luck, but the largest planet in the solar system and he can definitely pull rank. Jupiter is here until December and with Saturn spending the whole year in your work sector, they will work together to maintain a balance between work and play all year. With major developments continuing on the job front and new developments on the career front next month, this is something that needs to be taken seriously. Venus, the planet of love's return to join Jupiter in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart on 8th January, will make this relatively easy. So too will Mars' return to your sector of adventure, travel, learning and discovery on New Year's Day. It is Mars' return to your career sector next month that will kick off what will become a major period of expansion over the coming months, so will eagerly work with Jupiter and Venus to ensure life doesn't become all work and no play. Mars returns on a mission to fuel a passion for adventure and a hunger for life's richer experiences. Meanwhile, a total lunar eclipse in Leo on 21st January could trigger some exciting and unexpected developments.
There is a concerted effort, from around the solar system to keep your work hat off in the early weeks of the month, something even the professional gods are encouraging. The Sun, who will return to your work sector on 20th January to get this new professional year off the ground, will begin the year in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart and he is putting his foot down. Even Saturn, hard taskmaster of the cosmos is demanding time out to play. 2018 was a busy year for you, with a very real need to not only recharge your batteries, but reclaim a balance between work and play. For the first time in 12 years, you begin the year with lucky Jupiter in your home and family sector and as he is here until the final weeks of the year, this is the start of an auspicious year for things close to home. Jupiter returned in November, just over 10 months after Saturn's three year visit ended. Where there were challenges in the past you now get to enjoy the benefits. Venus' return to your home and family sector on 8th January will bring the planets of love and luck together here for the rest of the month. Home is not just where your heart will be, but some real opportunities for growth as well. Luck is smiling on home, family and/or property matters this month and will continue to all year. Meanwhile, this is also a year where you are able to take your financial power back, even if this wasn't on your radar at the end of last year. This literally changes on New Year's Day, with Mars returning to your financial sector to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit in the early hours of the month.
The stars pull a bit of a 'bait and switch' act on you this month, with how you assume the year will start changing dramatically, within the early hours of the week. Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos has spent the last six weeks of 2018 in your work sector and is still here as you move into 2019. Here Mars will keep you busy, whether at work or with everything else in your life that can keep you busy. After a Full Moon in your career sector just before Christmas and with Venus starting the year in your income sector, forces across the income, work and career fronts are on a roll. Yet while the North Node will remain in your career sector all year, providing a clear sense of professional direction and ongoing growth and momentum, after last month's Full Moon the professional gods are happy to let things play out. Meanwhile, with Mars leaving your work sector on New Year's Day and Venus your income sector a week later, this will ease back across the income, work and career fronts. Yet you will benefit from the head start, momentum and with ongoing support on all three fronts, there is no danger of anything going off the boil. What will happen is that this busy phase will end and will no longer dominate things. Venus and Mars will continue to work as a team, but in a very different format. Mars will return to your relationship sector on New Year's Day and Venus, the planet of love will join lucky Jupiter in your communication sector a week later. The real momentum Venus and Mars have created on the job and income fronts, will now shift to supporting your relationships and the communication lines. Meanwhile, as is always the case, the Sun puts the solar spotlight on home and family matters this month.
If you are looking for omens, then starting the year with the Moon, Venus and Ceres in Scorpio is a good one and also a phenomenal advantage. There is a one in 12 chance of starting the New Year with the Moon in Scorpio, giving you an intuitive edge and an intuitive read on the year's dynamics from the get go. The last time you moved into the New Year with the Moon in Scorpio was in 2011, eight years ago. On the other hand, Venus has no right to be here, having returned to Scorpio in early September, for what should have been a 24 day visit. Venus returned during Jupiter's final months and has stayed on to ensure your heart not only has a voice from the get go, but you still have access to all the possibilities the planet of luck and expansion has laid down the foundations for. The year also begins with Mars in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, with the planet of love working to ensure the romantic flame keeps burning even after he leaves on New Year's Day. This is important, for this is when life is set to become a lot busier and exciting. It begins with Mars' return to your work sector on New Year's Day and continues with Uranus' direct turn here on 7th January and Venus' return to your income sector a day later. A total lunar eclipse in your career sector on 21st January will act as a trigger for developments across the income, work and career fronts. Yet with Neptune and Chiron staying on in a playful part of your chart and the North Node in an adventurous part of your chart, a balance between work and play will continue to be policed.
There was never any doubt that this was going to be your year, because for almost the whole of 2018 there was a feeling that you were preparing for something. That something was Jupiter's return to Sagittarius in November and not due to leave until December, this makes 2019 your biggest and most expansive year in over a decade. It has been 12 years since you last moved into the New Year with Jupiter in Sagittarius, bringing you to the start of a year full of major new beginnings and potential. Yet while the year begins with Mercury in Sagittarius as well and therefore with your head in the game and ideas on the table, don't be surprised if you still don't know what you want from the coming year. For while the Sun has come and gone since Jupiter returned and your birthday month ended just before Christmas, it is not until Venus returns on 8th January that your heart will find its voice. This is also set to have some serious romantic implications. It is less that you have the planet of love returning to Sagittarius and more what she finds when she returns. For on New Year's Day Mars, the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos will return to a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart, where he will spend the first six weeks of 2019. With major new developments beginning this year, but not until next month, forget a balance between work and play, this month is biased towards all things fun, playful, romantic and creative. A total lunar eclipse in an adventurous part of your chart on 21st January will add even more weight to that chorus.
It is not only a happy New Year for you but a happy birthday as well. You are in a unique position, in that your birthday and calendar year will always coincide, with the Sun always spending the first three weeks of January in Capricorn. Whether you are a December or a January born Capricorn, this is your month and each year, you get to take your power back from the get go. Yet more so this year than in other years. For the second year in a row but also for just the second time in our lifetime, you begin the year with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn as well. You also begin the year with the South Node in Capricorn. This what turns an ordinary New Moon on 6th January into an extraordinary solar eclipse, creating the potential for major new beginnings. An eclipse not only brings the element of fate into play, but can reach back into the past and into all the untapped income potential building behind the scenes. This is the New Moon that gives you a chance to commit to your new solar year, the future and the journey ahead, but this year it comes with a chance to decide what you want that future to be. Yet while new doors are opening, this is also a year of preparation, with Jupiter spending all but the final weeks of 2019 in a nostalgic, reflective but also intuitive and imaginative part of your chart. It is Jupiter's return to Capricorn in December, joining forces with Saturn and Pluto, that will turn 2020 into one of the most powerful years in your lifetime. However, this does bring a need to pace yourself. There are also some exciting developments on the home, family and/or property fronts this month.
While the month long wind down of your old solar year began just before Christmas, chances are, even over the holiday period you didn't have much time to relax or unwind. A Full Moon in your work sector a day into this month long wind down and fevered activity across the income, work and career fronts continued over the holiday period. However, this will start to drop back, starting with Mars' departure from your income sector on New Year's Day and continuing with Venus' departure from your career sector a week later. While this will see things dial back, this gives income, work and career matters such a head start, that you will continue to reap the benefits for weeks if not months into 2019. Especially with the Sun returning to your income sector next month and the North Node in your work sector all year. However, until the Sun returns to Aquarius on 20th January, a need to slow down has to be taken seriously and even pull back. Mars spent nearly six months in Aquarius last year, so chances are 2018 was a busy and even exhausting year. If you move into 2019 and find the wind is being taken out of your sails, embrace it. Meanwhile, Venus and Mars regroup and with the help of a solar eclipse on 21st January, create an auspicious month for communication, friendship and relationship building. The same energy they put into income, work and career matters last month, they will put into your personal life this month. Because Mars spent nearly six months in Aquarius last year, when your birthday month begins on 20th January you should know exactly what you want and what excites you from the get go.
While the stars pull a 'bait and switch' on you in the early days of the month, rather than an effort to defraud you, this brings nothing but good news. However, it does mean that the year that was being advertised is not the year you will find as you finally move into 2019. What is advertised, is a fun, playful and adventurous year and nothing to suggest that this wouldn't continue. At the same time, January is always an important month for friendship and social matters and that will continue. Mars spent the final six weeks of 2018 in Pisces, where he has been firing up your passions and fighting spirit. Throughout that time Mars has been at a friendly aspect to the North Node in a playful part of your chart and since early last month, with Venus in an adventurous part of your chart. With no planetary activity in your work sector, both planets in your income sector in retrograde motion and Jupiter in your career sector but here for the long haul, there is nothing to suggest last month's conditions wouldn't continue. Especially as a playful Full Moon just before Christmas gave things a boost. However, things start to change in the early hours of the month. It begins with Mars' return to your income sector on New Year's Day and continues with Venus' return to your career sector a week later. A total lunar eclipse in your work sector will see an explosion of potential across the income, work and career fronts. What makes this so game changing, is that on all three fronts this will tap into potential that has literally been building for years. Fortunately, the North Node will remain in a playful part of your chart all year, policing a balance between work and play.
