You do so much for others, but when was the last time you’ve looked at how to make yourself happy? The way we find joy is different for everyone, and there’s no one way to find it. So, let’s see what the cards have to say about finding happiness this year.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 20)
With bountiful Jupiter aligning with the Sagittarius sign until December, you could be in the spotlight more than usual. Enjoy the new praise at work and in your other roles. But when Jupiter lines up with Neptune, you may want a break from the limelight, so don’t forget to focus on your home life and some quiet “me time.”
Capricorn (December 21 – January 18)
Jupiter and Venus will coordinate to foster your imagination in late January, which means 2019 will be the year of Capricorn creativity. You’ll find happiness exploring your artistic pursuits this year, whether you write something new or take time to reflect on why your favorite music speaks to you.
Aquarius (January 19 – February 17)
Ever-transitioning Uranus will align with both Mars and Jupiter in 2019, which will shift your focus into spirituality. Nothing will bring happiness to an Aquarius this year like being in touch with your higher purpose. This is the year to be involved with your community and connect with your family in ways you haven’t before.
Pisces (February 18 – March 19)
In 2019, the sensitive Pisces will be happiest when she stops trying to please everyone else. A new moon near your birthday in early March can help you refocus on your own needs, filter out toxic people, and learn to say no.
Aries (March 20 – April 19)
Mars, the planet for outward activity, is the ruling planet for an Aries. You’ll start the new year on a high when Mars enters your sign. This is the time for new adventures; with Mars on your side, you’ll be happiest taking the risk on a big decision at the beginning of 2019.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Big changes are coming to the life of the Taurus when Uranus moves into your sign in March. The more you welcome these changes, even the unexpected ones, the more you’ll appreciate moving forward. But be careful on the Ides of January, June, and September, when Jupiter positions with Neptune, as you may take one too many financial risks.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
You’re usually good at looking out for yourself, Gemini, but you’re ready to indulge in romance this year. The love planet Venus arrives in your zone in early January, culminating in a conjunction with Venus and Jupiter on January 22. If you’re single, now is the time to mingle; if you’re in a happy relationship, use this year to reinvest in your partner and appreciate how that person makes you smile.
Cancer (June 21 – July 21)
Saturn, the planet of structure and commitment, will continue to move through the Cancer’s 7th House of Partnership all year. This once-in-29-years karmic cycle is a good chance to evaluate your close relationships. Is a business partner really working out for you? When was the last time you had a lunch date with your bestie? Happiness will come for you when you focus on the social ties that are holding you together.
Leo (July 22 – August 21)
2019 is the year for the mighty Leo’s health. An eclipse in your health zone in early January will inspire you to follow through on your new year’s resolutions this year. Find your happy place during a regular lunchtime walk or a new, healthy recipe. When bountiful Jupiter passes through your sign in December, you’ll notice how much better you feel, physically and emotionally.
Virgo (August 22 – September 21)
You’ll finally find a way to spin all your plates at once when the discipline planet Saturn moves through the Virgo sector this year. You’ll enjoy taking on even more responsibilities this year. Try a new cash-making “side hustle,” offer to help a friend with her project, or volunteer at a community event.
Libra (September 22 – October 22)
A “family first” approach will make the Libra happiest this year. With Saturn in your domestic sector all year, paired with a boost in January from an eclipse in your home sector, 2019 is calling for you to to phone your parents, catch up with your siblings, or play with your kids.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
You’ll find most joy in expanding your mind this year. It starts with a solar eclipse in your learning zone, Scorpio, so look for opportunities to pick up a new hobby or share your knowledge in something you already know. As Mars moves into your sign in mid-November, you’ll find the joy in teaching.
