From its comfortable position in the sign it rules (serious Capricorn), Saturn is running the show this year. Focused on achievements and success, Saturn propels you to go after what you want. Set goals. Follow a plan. Saturn challenges you to do your best. Are you up for it?
Powerful Mars will help you get where you want to go – and fast. As Mars starts the year in energetic, ambitious Aries, you’re able to cross some things off your to-do list right away in January. The competitive vibe of Mars in Aries gives you a positive sense of accomplishment from the start.
The cosmic year isn’t complete without mentioning the three pesky Mercury retrograde periods, so look out for them in March, July, and November. All three cycles are immersed in emotional water signs, so struggling with feelings will be the norm. The key to getting through a Mercury retrograde this year is to follow your intuition. If it feels right, it probably is right.
Small but significant Pluto is also visiting hardworking Capricorn this year. It goes retrograde between late April and early October, then ends the year direct. Rebuilding from the ground up is the focus of this transit, giving you the belief that if you want it badly and try hard enough, anything is possible.
Fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius) are driven by excitement, and there’s no shortage of that this year. With expansive Jupiter in outgoing Sagittarius until early December, you enjoy a mix of fun and adventure. Travel and learn from other cultures as much as possible. Love goddess Venus doesn’t enter any retrograde periods, and the mood is passionate and aggressive when she spends time in the fire signs (Aries in late April, Leo in late July, and Sagittarius in early November). Translation? There won’t be any shortage of excitement in your love life!
Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn) use logic more than other signs, so you’re happy about Saturn’s placement in earthy, practical Capricorn. This is a grounded energy you can connect with (especially when it comes to tending to the details). Saturn retrograde from late April until mid-September perpetuates slowdowns, though, temporarily impeding your progress. Expansive Jupiter also enters factual Capricorn in early December, increasing your desire to learn. Exploring educational pursuits, studying, and reading will help you advance to the next level.
Air signs (Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius) experience slow-moving Uranus (who rules Aquarius) making the transition from fiery Aries into slower-moving Taurus in early March. This mismatched energy (Uranus likes to experiment, while Taurus takes the traditional route) can impede progress, slowing down your hard work. Money-focused Venus moves into air sign Gemini in early June, presenting some prime moneymaking opportunities. Be practical, don’t waver, and keep your eye on the prize.
The big news for water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) this year is that you host Mercury’s retrograde cycles (March in Pisces, July in Cancer, and November in Scorpio). When your plans hit a snag, use your intuition to detangle them. Ethereal Neptune is retrograde in Pisces between late June and late November, so daydreams might be temporarily interrupted. If you’ve been living in denial, this could be a very rude awakening. Once you welcome the voice of reason, however, your year should get more successful.
Work hard, play hard—that’s the Aries way, no matter what’s happening in the stars. But in 2019, the planets are soaring through the top of your chart, pushing you to think big, and go even bigger. With healing Chiron entering Aries and disruptive Uranus finally exiting your sign in March (after eight long years!), you can gather your wits and channel big ideas into something that makes a lasting impact.
Combine your superpowers for the win! In 2019, it’s all about who you know—and what you do with those relationships. Your closest connections are valuable currency, so nurture them wisely. A joint venture could be profitable and relationships could turn uber-official (think: marriage, pregnancy, a shared investment). Avoid getting scattered among too many commitments, though. This is a year to narrow your focus! Studying and connecting with people outside your circle can help you make savvy, strategic ideas a reality. Once pioneering Uranus enters Taurus in March, an eight-year cycle begins that could take one of your original ideas into the big leagues or pull you onto a whole new path.
As the sign of the Twins, partnership comes naturally to you. But this year, you’re learning important lessons about how to move from lust to trust. It’s not just about the “high” of quick chemistry, but building relationships that last for the long haul. That requires a level of risk that you’ll finally be ready to take in 2019. Clear the space for high-vibe new people to enter your orbit!
While “green and clean” might be your M.O. for 2019, that doesn’t mean you won’t have fun. In fact, changing the world could become a serious adventure for you, Cancer. Your solo star is rising and powerful partnerships can help bring your visionary ideas to new heights. With trailblazing Uranus entering your collaboration corner for eight years this March, it’s all about teaming up with your tribe for a common cause.
Time to uplevel your game, Leo! With lucky Jupiter in your self-expression zone, fame could come calling. But even if you’re not under the direct beams of the spotlight, you’ll be recognized for your creativity and courage—and you’re happy to be admired for these traits. With pioneering Uranus starting an eight-year visit to your professional zone, 2019 could take your work in a whole new direction.
Where do you feel a sense of “home,” Virgo? Whether you move to a new address, discover a favorite vacation spot or deepen your emotional bonds, 2019 finds you craving deeper roots. This year, connecting from the heart could bring luck and new adventure. Shake off your perfectionism. Remember: It’s your authenticity that makes people fall in love with you, not a polished public persona. Luckily, iconoclastic Uranus is starting an eight-year visit to your outspoken ninth house this March, which will encourage you to go public with your wilder side. You’ll also be inspired to take some big risks, like traveling to far-flung places or starting your own business.
Got a message to spread? Shout it from the rooftops—and the social media feeds. This year will favor all forms of communication: teaching, writing, learning and media-making. Your domestic sphere is also highly active, and you could travel between towns in search of a new neighborhood to call home. Your relationship with a female relative could go through an important growth phase, or you may need to learn how to set firm boundaries with loved ones. As busy as you are, carve out time for soul-searching, as an eight-year phase of emotional and spiritual discovery will begin in March.
Your luckiest money year in over a decade is underway! Scorpio, you’re in “builder” mode now, as 2019 brings a rush of productivity to your life. You could be offered a job with travel or relocation, or you might make some bold decisions to change your lifestyle. Shed outmoded habits and stick to simple and affirming routines. You’ll become centered and confident, which could attract anything from a money-making opportunity to improved relationship prospects. Heads up: Prepare to attract (and be attracted to) people who are wildly different than your usual crowd. Friends who fearlessly flaunt their authenticity will inspire you to do the same.
Ready, set, reinvent! This could be one of your most exciting years in over a decade, as you embark on a fresh 12-year chapter. Shake off any heavy or disappointing vibes from 2018, which was a year filled with karmic lessons and possibly a few struggles. Now, as the stars press “go” on your passions, you can pursue your dreams in a more mature and sensible way. Instead of leaping without a parachute, you’ve learned to take chances without foolishly gambling. You’ve been working toward this sweet spot since 2014, and you’ve paid your dues. Enjoy the fruits of your labor, Sag!
Who are you, anyway? That answer could change a few times over in 2019, as the planets strip away any false or outmoded layers of your personality. There are parts of your life that you’ve outgrown, and this is an important year to let those go. You’re clearing the path for a totally new 12-year chapter of your life that will begin in December. With edgy Uranus starting an eight-year visit to your expressive fifth house this March, you might shock the world by revealing some bold new sides of yourself. Unleash your inner rock star or artiste—it’s your turn to shine!
New friendships and networking keep your world feeling fresh in 2019, as team spirit hits peak levels. Choose the company you keep carefully, as you’re especially empathic and will soak up people’s energy like a sponge. A spiritual or creative pursuit could turn into more than just a hobby, especially if you contribute your talents to a cause. Starting in March, you could search for a new home, invest in vacation property or feel a surprising urge to expand your family, possibly through pregnancy or adoption.
Your default setting may not be #boss mode, but in 2019, you’ll find the adventure in ambition! That doesn’t have to mean power suits and boring board meetings (although there may be a few of those in your future). As a Pisces, you know how to create success with your signature stamp on it…and a heaping helping of compassion. Look forward to improved health and energy levels this year—and dynamic new friendships that inspire you to see the world through a new wide-angle lens.
