Monthly fun and easy to understand forecasts just for you!
As January kicks off, it’s time to get down to business. That’s not going to be too hard – Mars is roaring through Aries and the Sun in stoic Capricorn, we’re all ready to slay this year! The energy is high and so much can get done.
This is especially true when Mercury enters in Capricorn on the 4th. Communication becomes serious business now. Conversations can be productive. If you have anything that you need to say, let your words be logical and practical. It’s best that way.
A solar eclipse in Capricorn on the 5th could bring a substantial change in business or government. This is a day to watch. The news around this day could be significant.
Uranus turns direct on the 6th. When Uranus is retrograde, we have a chance to go inward and ponder the changes we need or want to make. It’s also a time for reflection on freedom. If you’ve felt trapped in some area of your life, you’ve had a few months to consider how you might free yourself. Now you can initiate those changes. Liberation can be yours!
Venus gallops into fiery Sagittarius on the 7th. This brings out restless energy. The urge to roam is strong. It may be hard to sit still or to make a commitment. Romantic adventures may be necessary if you want to curb that fidgety vibe. Venus in Sagittarius also prefers a straightforward approach. If you see someone you like, be bold. Let ‘em know what you want. Don’t keep them guessing.
A Jupiter square Neptune on the 13th sets up the perfect storm for unproductive daydreaming and impractical attitudes. It can also indicate a tendency for escapism through drugs, alcohol, or other means (spending too much time messing around on the internet!). You’ll need to ground and center if you want to get anything done. Keep substances in check. Too much partying while this square is cooking could lead to flakiness and missed opportunities. This square can also indicate financial loss through deception or “get rich quick” schemes. Keep your mind on your money and your money on your mind, folks. If it looks too good to be true, it probably is.
Originality and innovation rules when the Sun enters Aquarius on the 20th. This transit favors bold new ideas and perspectives. Instead of sticking with the status quo, change is preferred. Freedom and humanitarian pursuits could be a theme going forward. We could see a clash between the old way and the new way on the world’s stage. Will we stick with what’s not working or be ready to clear the decks and start fresh? We’ll see.
The lunar eclipse in Leo on the 21st promises to be INTENSE. Something important may be coming to an end. Egos will be tested, and we all have a chance to explore humility. This day could bring a shocking ending for those who have been in egomaniac mode for far too long. It could also be a time for some folks to step out of the shadow and shine too.
Mercury in Aquarius on the 24th favors intelligence and a cool head. Time to follow the brain instead of the heart if you want to get anywhere. Search for the facts. Follow up on information. Let logic lead the way. If something doesn’t add up, it’s probably a lie. Trust that in all of your communications.
Saturn will form a sextile with Neptune on the 31st – this can give deep insights into the subconscious mind. Which means you can understand what makes you tick (and what makes others tick too). Intuition will be uncannily accurate at this time – watch for omens and flashes of inspiration in the weeks ahead. Dreams can also become a reality if you are willing to create a structure to support them. Your success depends on how you use your imagination.

The Sun, Saturn, and Pluto are nudging you to make changes to your home or issues with your family. This is not the time to sweep things under the rug. Instead, a thorough housecleaning may be in order. Declutter your home, put things in order, finish projects that have been neglected. If you’re not happy with the family dynamics, look at your role. Are you doing what you can to heal and forgive? Or are you playing the victim and making it all about you? Is it possible that your boundaries have been too weak? Contemplate what needs to be done and then take the lead. A proactive approach may bring long-term results to even the suckiest family situation. It’s easier to communicate with loved ones when Mercury joins the 4th house on the 4th. You can talk it out so do not hold your tongue. If that feels unsafe, it may also be the right time to begin working with a family therapist. A solar eclipse on the 5th brings a major shift at home. This day may start the healing process – or may illuminate where you actually need to do the work. If a skeleton tumbles out of the closet today, it could open up a much-needed dialogue.

A career reality check arrives on the 13th when Jupiter forms a square with Neptune. Some information comes to light that could be challenging. You may not like what you see or hear at this time. Do not react right away though. Research is needed if you want to make the right decision. Romance heats up when the Sun heads into your 5th house on the 20th. Opportunities to court are present. Bring the flowers, chocolates, and make your move, playa. The lunar eclipse on the 21st could signal a massive change in your social circle. A friendship may end around that time. This isn’t necessarily negative though – someone could simply move away. You can express your creativity when Mercury slips into your 5th house on the 24th. Paint, draw, write, sing – BRING IT.

Scorpio: You’ve got a lot on your mind this month, dear Scorpio. The Sun, Saturn, and Pluto are sitting tight in your 3rd house, giving you a head full of ideas – and the discipline to do something with them. January is ideal for writing that book, creating that invention, or going back to school. Whatever you decide to tackle, you have the mental capacity to make steady progress.

Upgrade your technology, renovate the website, give your office a makeover – it’s all good. Your revenue improves on the 7th when Venus slips into your 2nd house. You can make some serious cash over the next few weeks. It’s easier to attract the money you want – but this transit also brings the urge to splurge. While there is nothing wrong with a bit of bling, don’t blow your wad in one take. Practice restraint! This is especially important on the 13th when Jupiter forms a square with Neptune – investments made around this time could lead to heavy losses. Be on guard for charlatans, get-rich-quick schemes, or anything that looks too good to be true. You can prevent a catastrophe if you are a bit more conservative with your resources. Attention turns to family affairs when the Sun flows into your 4th house. You’ll have a few weeks to take care of issues with loved ones – or to get your home organized. With you in charge, it won’t take long before things are under control. An opportunity to grab the spotlight is all yours when the lunar eclipse lands in your 10th house. This day or the ones that surround it could put your work front and center for all to see. It’s also possible that a stunning new offer may come your way.

Put that date on your calendar – and make your move.
Sagittarius: As 2019 takes off, you’ll want to train your peepers to your money, dear Sagittarius. The Sun, Saturn, and Pluto in your financial sector aren’t playing around – and neither should you if you want security. This month may give you opportunities to up your earning potential, but you’ll want sound structures in place so that you can pay off debts and sock some of that sweet cash away. Have discussions around money with your financial advisor when Mercury enters your 2nd house on the 4th. Create a plan of action and then stick with it. You could see significant progress this year if you set yourself up right this month. The solar eclipse on the 5th could bring a promising change in your money situation. Whatever happens around this day could clear up a worry. Spruce up your public image when Venus enters your sign on the 7th. Cut your hair, try on some new duds, freshen up your makeup drawer. If you’ve been hanging on to that look from ten years ago, let that go. A new look will increase your confidence tenfold. A family problem could snag your attention on the 13th when Jupiter and Neptune are in a tough square. This day and the days that surround it could be dramatic – and misunderstandings could lead to hurt feelings. Try not to let things blow out of proportion, especially if you don’t have all facts. When the Sun slips into your 3rd house on the 20th, you can start organizing your travel plans. There may be an opportunity or two to head out of town in the few weeks that the Sun rests here. Even a short foray to the next city over could brighten your mood. The 21st is especially lovely for travel – the lunar eclipse will be directly in your 9th house, which is marvelous for a voyage to somewhere warm. If you can, map that week out and go somewhere. Communication with loved ones improves on the 24th when Mercury heads into your 3rd house. You can get your point across eloquently at this time. If you need to say something, you’ve got a few weeks to get that conversation flowing. The sextile between Saturn and Neptune on the 31st is superb for purchasing a home or buying new furniture. If you’ve been thinking of investing in property or a new couch, this is your green light.
Capricorn: The Sun, Saturn, and Pluto in your sign at the beginning of the year give you a mega-boost of confidence. Which means: you can strut your stuff this month, dear Capricorn. You’re one of the hardest-working signs of the zodiac and no doubt you nailed 2018, even though the planets are not friendly. This year, you’re more than ready to take things to the next level, and January will get you off on the right foot. Mercury will be in your sign on the 4th, giving you the powers of persuasion. Take the lead in work meetings – you will be able to get everyone behind you. The solar eclipse on the 5th clears away any self-doubt once and for all. You are indeed in your best element going forward. Secret romantic trysts are possible when Venus moves into your 12th house on the 7th. A rendezvous or two might be in the cards. But be careful. If you’re doing anything that you shouldn’t, this could get revealed mid-month when Jupiter forms a square with Neptune. It’s also possible that day could bust an illusion – and force you into a reality check. Best advice: don’t do anything risky if you’re not realistic about the possible consequences. Finances improve significantly when the Sun blazes into your 2nd house on the 20th. You’ll have a few weeks of improved earning power – and the willpower to go after your money goals. Feel free to be as ambitious for cash as you want for the weeks that the Sun hangs here. Go after that moolah! Raise your rates! Ask for the promotion! The lunar eclipse on the 21st brings potential news about a new financial opportunity. This could be a new job, position, or a green light for a loan. Whatever that day brings could clear obstacles to your revenue goals. Be ready to discuss your financial future with an advisor on the 24th when Mercury enters your 2nd house. This is a good time for getting your debts in order – or for setting up your retirement account. Look at where you want to be and what needs to be done – and then create your savings plan. A cherished dream can become a reality when Saturn forms a sextile with Neptune on the 31st. If there is something you want to manifest, you’ll be shown the way on this day.
Aquarius: As 2019 opens up you’re pulling back a bit, dear Aquarius. The Sun, Saturn, and Pluto in your 12th house of rest demand that you step away from the social world and chill out. Perhaps you partied too hard over the holidays. Or maybe you’re just feeling like you need “me time.” Whatever the case may be, start the year out with a bit of hibernation. You’re privy to everyone’s secrets starting on the 4th when Mercury slides into your 12th house. You’ll be the perfect confidant for other people’s business. No matter what they’re confessing, you’re not saying a thing. A solar eclipse on the 5th brings an opportunity to let go of some old limiting beliefs. If you’ve been harboring painful memories, it’s time for a purge. Visit a therapist if you need help. Letting go feels so good! Your ruling planet, Uranus, is direct on the 6th. Implement your big ideas. Your innovations could lead to recognition. This is also a marvelous time for short, sudden trips. A little getaway over the next few weeks might be good for the soul. If you’re looking for romance, your social life may provide opportunities once Venus shimmies into your 11th house on the 7th. A love connection is possible so defo get out there. Just make sure you’re not sending mixed signals on the 13th when Jupiter forms a square with Neptune. Be clear. Don’t promise a commitment when you only want to be friends with benefits. Get ready for a massive energy boost when the Sun is in your sign starting on the 20th. Your vitality is super-charged, giving you the gumption to step up your game at work to true BO$$ status. Take command. Shine brightly. BE CONFIDENT. The lunar eclipse on the 21st may bring about a new love interest. Or it’s possible that a relationship may be heading to the next level. A change in your status may be just on the horizon sometime soon after this date. Show your intellectual prowess starting on the 24th when Mercury visits your sign for a few weeks. You’re one of the brainiest signs in the zodiac and this period will give you a chance to show what you know. (Psst…this could pay off handsomely at work.) A sextile between Saturn and Neptune on the 31st could reveal some unexpected cash. This might be something you’ve overlooked (ex: a check you forgot to deposit, a birthday card from Aunt Mabel with a Benjamin, etc.). A bit of extra cheddar finishes off the month on a happy note.
Pisces: You may still be in a festive mood as the year begins, dear Pisces. A busy 11th house indicates opportunities to hobnob keep showing up in your world. Time well spent with friends at the beginning of January will warm you up – you can hibernate later. Mercury will join the Sun, Saturn, and Pluto on the 4th, giving you lots more excuses to get out of the house. You’ll be flitting about like a social butterfly for weeks! A dear friend may reveal something on the 5th when the solar eclipse illuminates your 11th house. This day could also see a friendship come to a close. If one of your buddies leaves the scene, let them go. Your reputation at work gets some sweet buzz when Venus enters your career sector on the 7th. You can wow ‘em with your charm so do not be shy! The power of persuasion and people skills is yours – be ambitious and ask for what you want. You may get that yes you’ve been hoping for. The square between Jupiter and Neptune on the 13th might bring a hit to your reputation. You’ll want to be extra careful how you present yourself at this time. A foot in the mouth could be costly. It’s also possible that someone may try to throw you some shade. If someone is trying to damage your street cred, you’ll want to nip that haterade in the bud! Hibernation starts to sound like a plan when the Sun lumbers into your 12th house on the 20th. After such a hectic social calendar, “me time” is going to feel like good medicine. This marks a few weeks where you can pull back and enjoy your solitude. Start a new health regimen on the 21st when the lunar eclipse lands in your 6th house. If you’ve been lax on your routines, this is the perfect day to change the course and get back on track. It’s never too late to make your health a priority! Habits formed now have a great chance of sticking. When Mercury heads into your 12th house on the 24th, you may want to consider working on your mental health. This would be the right time to meditate, talk things out, or start therapy. This might be the start of a healthier you – both inside and out. A lovely sextile between Saturn and Neptune on the 31st brings support from a trusted friend. You’re going to realize who’s really got your back.
