There’s nothing wrong with looking out for your friends, family, and coworkers. After all, your generosity may have been what helped them achieve their goals in 2018.
But now that it’s 2019, it’s time to refocus on you. You already know what you want out of the new year. Now, what do you need to do to get there?
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st)
Jupiter will move into your Sagittarius at the end of 2018 and stay favorably until late into 2019. This planet of luck and expansion means you’re set to explore your personal or spiritual development. What life-changing experience have you been putting off? Whether it’s saving up for your dream vacation or re-prioritizing your free time, 2019 is the year to look inwards at what gives you purpose.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th)
You’ve spent too much time in 2018 trying to be what you think everyone wants you to be, but now it’s time to be the Capricorn you were meant to be. Mars will move into your history zone from New Year’s Day until late March/early April, meaning now is the time to explore your identity and heritage. Embrace the parts of your family history that resonate with you and proudly share them. The people around you will respect you even more.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th)
Between a Venus-Jupiter conjunction in your family zone in late January and a trine with Jupiter and your ruling planet, Uranus, in mid-December, Aquarius will flourish in 2019 by celebrating family. However, instead of focusing what you can sacrifice for them, spend time appreciating what makes you love them. You already worry about what you need to give your kids, but what about them makes you smile? Or, maybe it’s time to reconnect with a relative with whom you’ve lost touch –– not just with a holiday card, but with a long phone call or visit.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th)
Cosmic luck for your career is on your side at the start of the year, Pisces. Lucky Jupiter will align with its home sign in your career sector this year, and with Mars, a planet of drive and determination, in your money zone just before your birthday, your hard work financially will pay off. As long as you don’t shy away when challenging opportunities present themselves, you’ll reap the rewards.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th)
Hang on tight, Aries, because big adventures are coming your way in 2019. Mars, the ruling planet for Aries, enters your sign on New Year’s Day, funneling a spotlight to you. This planet of passion means you’ll have all the tools you need to take the next big step. This is not a gradual, wait-and-see kind of year for you; when you see your moment, go for it!
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th)
When warrior planet Mars enters Taurus on in February, you’ll finally realize when to put your foot down. While you’re always happy to help when you can, there are people in your life who have asked for too much in 2018 and it’s time to put your foot down. You may feel the chaotic energy when Uranus visits your sign in March, but if you stand for your convictions, those who have exploited you will learn to respect you.
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th)
2019 is a year of rebirth for the Gemini. A new moon in early June is the perfect time to restart your priorities. Use that time to shed people or activities from your life that waste your time and fill it with anything that gives you purpose or makes you happy.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd)
You’ll be tempted to question yourself this year, Cancer. Uranus, the planet of rebellion, will disrupt your objectives zone in early March; then, Mercury will be in retrograde in your psychology zone. Don’t let these energies fuel your insecurity; recognize that the projects you’ve started are worth your attention and only you are the right person for those tasks.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd)
Leo will be ready for commitment in 2019. An early Mars-Uranus conjunction will give the stage to all those relationships and projects that needed your attention. Then, when the full moon in your passion zone arrives near your birthday in July, you’ll be ready to seal the deal. Think carefully about what you want in your personal and professional life this year, because you’re ready to lock down on your decisions.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd)
The open road is calling you, Virgo. 2019 will be the perfect year for you to travel because Uranus is moving into your 9th House of Higher Mind in early March. Even if you don’t physically travel, you’ll be more open to seeing other perspectives, especially with new moon near your birthday in late August signalling change and rebirth. Let yourself visit new places spiritually, physically, and emotionally to reaffirm your desires.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd)
Libra will be a target for gossip among her peers in 2019. A lunar eclipse in mid-July in your domestic sector will align with Pluto, which can be a celestial body that brings either renewal or a hunger for power. With these tempting feelings, people will perpetuate rumors about you because they will be threatened by your energy. Try to forgive those who talk about you because they don’t mean to be malicious. Otherwise, don’t pay them much attention. You have too much going for you this year.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st)
2019 will be a roller coaster for you this year, but you’ll enjoy the ride. A Mars-Uranus conjunction in March can be dangerously volatile for you, and you may lose esteem at work or take a hit financially. But when Mars, a ruling planet for Scorpio, shifts toward your career zone in July, you’ll be grateful you took the risks you did. Your tenacity will help you persevere through the year, giving you the strength to broaden your boundaries.
