Wishing you health and prosperity in 2019,
May the Sun shine upon you, today and always,
ASTRO-PLANNER FOR JANUARY 2019
December 31/January 1: The New Year begins with a Sun-Saturn conjunction in Capricorn, a Moon-Venus conjunction in Scorpio, and Mars entering Aries! How does this translate? There’s nothing to fear if your life is in relative order and you’re steering with your own inner spiritual compass. You’ll feel ready for just about anything! For those of you running from dealing with a situation, this period will see reality dawn. Expect the cold unadulterated truth, served with a dollop of emotional intensity, and garnished with everything you thought you’d never say/do – right out in the open
January 5: New Moon at 15 degrees Capricorn (partial solar eclipse, 8:28 pm in New York). For those of you who love New Year’s resolutions, this is the New Moon for you! There’s plenty of mental strength and discipline around to make it all happen. So set those goals and aim high. Robust activities and disciplined routines start here. Prediction: the gyms will be full this week!
January 6: Uranus moves direct at 28 degrees of Aries. You have from now until March 7, 2019, to finish off things you began 7 years ago. (What were you doing between March 2011 and January 2012? Did you begin some new venture?) It’s time to make way for Uranus in Taurus! You may find yourself putting down roots and building up your bank account. You’ve got 7 years to do this, from March 2019 until April 2026. Planetary energies are on your side
January 8: Venus leaves Scorpio (at last!) for freedom-loving Sagittarius. While the first week of January may be oh so serious, things start to lighten up after the 8th. We can say goodbye (and thank you) to all the deep emotional processing that’s been taking place since September 10 and move forward into our Joy
January 21: Full Moon at 0 degrees of Leo (total lunar eclipse, 0:15 am in New York). Expect the unexpected and take hold of opportunities offered to you – yes, life can get more intense than it is now! (And you’ve actually been wishing for change since last summer.) There’s also a Venus-Jupiter conjunction at 1 degree of Sagittarius (trine the Moon in Leo, and Mars in Aries!) – please look at the sky and see bright and beautiful Venus-Jupiter! What can we say except, ‘Reach for your highest success and you will achieve it!’. If you can avoid too much of a good thing, this is your time for self-motivation, pulling out all the stops, and triumphing over your fears. If you are prone to mood swings, avoid mind-altering substances between January 20-22. If you’re born around December 4 – 9, this could be the day to propose to your loved one or buy a lottery ticket!
