Hard work pays off in 2019!
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.

There's no holding back this year, Aries. In 2019, you get to show the world exactly who you are and what you can do!
Your ruler is powerful Mars, and you start the year with it going full speed ahead in your sign. This gives you an incredible power boost and sets a great tone for the rest of the year regarding goals and ambitions. By early October, however, Mars enters Libra, where it loses some of its power, so you might not feel as spontaneous and driven. Libra is a charming influence, but when you try to tone things down, it could come off as passive-aggressive. You have good intentions, but you just don't carry the poise and grace thing off too well.
The sun is in your sign in late March through the end of April, and now there's absolutely no shame in showing the world the pure, unadulterated version of you! That means you're bold and spontaneous and full of life – and you always follow the excitement wherever it may lead. You're at your competitive best right now as well, so finishing first is your top priority. Just try not to lose sight of your true motivation while you're running toward the finish line.
And speaking of running (your mouth), it's easy to get tripped up on your words and say the wrong thing during the three Mercury retrograde periods (in March, July, and late October), especially when it comes to your feelings. With these retro cycles in touchy-feely water signs, you really struggle to express yourself the way you want. The key to escaping them without too much damage is to go with your gut. If it feels like the right thing to say, go for it.
Your ruler, lovely Venus, doesn't go through any retrograde periods in 2019, but does that mean clear sailing for you all year? It's doubtful, Taurus, but you might get a break in the dominant areas of your life that she rules: love and money. One transit to look forward to is a Venus-Jupiter conjunction in Sagittarius at the end of January (and again at the end of November), especially for its easygoing energy. Everything seems to be just a little easier now, which is kind of nice.
A four-month-long Jupiter retrograde cycle starting in early April will help give you much-needed time for philosophical reflection and spiritual introspection. Confronting your darker behaviors, instincts, and habits isn't easy, but the chance for growth and transformation is enormous if you do it.
There's a new moon in your sign at the start of May that will help launch new relationships and projects if you find a way to use its powerful potential. Anything you instigate now should be successful if you see it through. Delegating is always an option, but you're better off at least supervising the details as things progress.
Uranus enters your earthy sign in the beginning of March and turns retrograde in August. This isn't the easiest pairing because Uranus likes change and you like things to stay the same. Can you reach a middle ground? Yes, but you'll have to be willing to keep a much more open mind than usual. The Jupiter retrograde welcomes introspection and the opportunity to shift your energy inward, so take full advantage of your downtime.
You're up for anything and everything this year!
Mercury, your chatty home planet, has three retrograde periods this year, in March, July, and November (starting in late October), and it spends most of its retro time in emotional water signs (versus the quick-to-react fire signs it visited last year). Because water signs are highly intuitive, it will benefit you to use your gut instincts when you're confused or unsure of how to proceed. This might go against your logical nature, but you can get results by stepping outside your comfort zone and relying on your inner voice instead of cold, hard facts for a change.
Uranus moves into steady Taurus at the start of March, which could really shake things up. What is no longer working for you? Maybe a relationship (romantic or business) has run its course? Is it time to contemplate changing jobs? Or does your wardrobe or personal style need an overhaul? Whether it's a big or small change you're considering, this pair likes to remind you that change can be a very, very good thing.
The sun spends time in your sign in late May and into June, so you're super sociable and curious in these summer months. You lean to the intellectual side, so you want to learn everything you can about a wide range of topics, and you love to talk about what you've learned. Trivia nights were made for you, Gemini! Spending time with friends and family (and even strangers) talking and philosophizing about life is your favorite way to spend your spare moments.
This is your year to own it, Cancer. If you feel like you haven't been in control of your own destiny, it's time to take back your power and show the world what you're capable of!
You may have retreated into your comfortable shell at the end of 2018, thanks to some bad experiences, unexpected news, or various other disappointments, so you aren't really interested in exposing your raw emotions to the world right now. Maybe you already put yourself out there on social media and got burned, or perhaps you've always been afraid to show how you really feel. You do feel things deeply, but right now you'd much rather keep your thoughts to yourself than put them out there for everyone to see (and critique).
The full moon in January aims to shine a light on your soft spots, though, and the fact that it's a supermoon means there will be few places to hide. What kind of hand are you capable of playing when your cards are unexpectedly exposed? You're about to find out.
You feel much less exposed and more confident when the sun spends time in your sign between the end of June and the end of July, especially since you enjoy the summer months and all they entail. You love getting together with friends and family for some sun and fun, and this could be the summer you have some very interesting romantic developments to look forward to.
Moody Pluto (in strict Capricorn) heads direct in autumn, hopefully putting to rest some of the suspicions you've had for the past several months. The year 2019 is all about taking control of your life, Cancer, and this is a great time to start.
"All About You" is a fitting title, because that's the way you like to have things: all about you! But 2019 encompasses more than that.
How about starting off your year with a full moon (and supermoon) in your sign at the end of January? And to top that off, it's a total lunar eclipse! It will be hard for you to hide anything – especially your true feelings – and the drama will be intense. You will experience big changes at this time, and in true Leo form you'll want to broadcast them (if they're good). You aren't as eager to share bad news (you do have your precious Leo ego to protect)!
July is an important month with Mars, the sun, and Venus all entering your sign at some point. Mars plus Leo in early July equals a very strong urge to get the party started, where the "party" can be anything from an actual get-together to a work project to studying for a test. Whatever's on your agenda, you're determined to make it the best (fill in the blank) it can be.
Attractive Venus in your sign at the end of July brings the focus to your entire personal life, not just your romantic relationships. You want to be adored by everyone, including friends, family members, and co-workers. You know how great you are, now why can't everyone else acknowledge it?! The more compliments and attention you get for the next six or so weeks the better. You're much easier to live with when you feel like you're the center of everyone's universe.
Communications expert Mercury enters your sign in mid-August, making your conversations and interactions even more dramatic than usual (if that's possible). You love to jump on social media and post about your successes, but you're the least likely sign to tell other people about your failures.
Your practical nature helps you succeed in 2019!
Your year starts out with a full moon and supermoon in your sign in February, which might have you torn between your emotions and logic. As you constantly battle to be your best self, this could cause conflicting thoughts about the best way to reach your goals. This can be kind of confusing, but the good thing about this pairing is that you're a balanced mix of both left- and right-brain thinking. Put them together to understand where you are, what you want, and where you should go from here.
August is a busy cosmic month. Four important energies enter your sign (Mars, Venus, the sun, and Mercury). Mars plus Virgo is detail oriented, so look to finish projects that have needed that one little fix that's been hard to pinpoint until now. Venus in your sign equals a practical approach to love and money, which you're already used to. You don't venture too far out of your comfort zone in these areas, and there's nothing wrong with that! The sun illuminates the practical areas of your life and reemphasizes the need to take care of details. It's the little things that matter most now!
The most important one to note, of course, is at the very end of August when your ruler comes home to visit. Mercury in Virgo is an intelligent, practical, and communicative combo, so you probably won't have any issues in these areas. Mercury does have three retrograde periods to watch out for (March, July, and November), all in water signs, but taking a practical approach is your best bet for making it through any difficulties they bring.
Improving your personal relationships is this year's focus.
You're ruled by lovely Venus, so it's nice to know she and you won't have to endure any retrograde periods in 2019. When she's in your sign in the middle of September, everything feels balanced (just the way you like it). You're comfortable in your skin and feel at home in the world, and nothing really gets to you.
There's a full moon in your sign that marks the spring equinox at the end of March, and it puts your close personal relationships in the spotlight. Focus on strengthening current bonds or rebuilding old ones that are in disrepair (or broken altogether). Nothing seems impossible in the light of this moon, and someone you haven't seen or talked to in a long time could appear and ask for forgiveness or a chance at redemption. Because this is also a time of renewal and you're already a very fair person, you're likely to say yes.
The sun spends time in your sign for a month starting late in September, so there will be a sun-Venus conjunction to look forward to. You'll get another shot at repairing things if they didn't work out earlier in the year. This gives you more time to focus on your relationships, not just romantic ones but also family and business ones. You want very badly to find or restore harmony to all parts of your life for your own sake as well as everyone else's. If you had a personal motto it would probably be "Why can't we all just get along?"
What do you want this year, Scorpio? What are you passionate about? Your dreams are the focus of 2019, and guess what? Some of them could come true in a big way!
A major advantage you have is that Mars, your forceful co-ruler, stays direct all year, so you don't have to worry about losing any of the incredible drive that it provides. In January, Mars is positioned in ambitious Aries, which it also rules, giving you a powerful energy boost to help you reach your loftiest goals.
Disciplined Saturn is at home in hardworking Capricorn all year, so that's another huge check in the "win" column. This placement ensures that your integrity is intact as you work toward personal and professional goals. Feeling overly stressed and rigid could be a result of this strict pairing, though, so take a couple extra yoga classes or schedule regular massages to keep your mind and body healthy and happy.
Pluto, your co-ruler, continues to travel in responsible Capricorn, improving all areas related to power (especially your career). You might experience slowdowns during Pluto's yearly retrograde cycle from late April until October, so use any downtime to solve outstanding issues that didn't get dealt with the first time they came around (most likely in the last several months).
The time around your birthday promises to be eventful and fulfilling when the sun moves into your intense sign at the end of October, so don't shy away from being acknowledged. You often like to keep your accomplishments to yourself, but you deserve to be admired and celebrated for what you've been able to do throughout the year.
You're always up for a new learning experience, so will 2019 teach you any valuable lessons? Looks likely!
Expansive Jupiter, your home planet, is in your outgoing sign until early December, so you can look forward to a harmonious mix of fun and open-mindedness most of the year. Your beliefs are front and center, but you aren't interested in preaching to anyone. You're mostly the "live and let live" type, but like most people you defend causes you believe in. Be aware of Jupiter retrograde from early April until the beginning of August because you'll be more reflective during this time. Go over what it is you truly believe in and think about whether you've been living your life according to your personal moral code.
There's a full moon in your sign in mid-June, which could really restore your faith in humanity. This is a good time to put what you've learned into practice and be aware that a lesson you've been taught has a very specific purpose. If life's been feeling chaotic lately, this full moon will calm your nerves and help you see that everything happens for a reason. Don't ignore what the lessons from the past are trying to teach you now.
Talkative Mercury spends time in your sign early in December, when it will just be coming out of its third retrograde period of the year. You might still be feeling some of its effects, so you can expect things associated with how you communicate to be just a little bit harder than usual. On the positive side, Mercury in your sign is great news if you want to learn new things or have plans to teach a class or give a lecture. The lines of communication are open wide, allowing an interesting exchange of information to flow.
There are great benefits to your sign playing gracious host to several planets this year!
There's a new moon in Capricorn that's partnered with a partial solar eclipse to look forward to in the beginning of January, perfect timing when you consider how ready you are to start fresh with your new ideas. You're an ambitious sign who thrives on setting goals and reaching them, so this new moon is the perfect way to kick off 2019. There are signs everywhere that let you know if you're on the right track. Pay close attention to the universe when it gives you the green light (or warns you to hold off).
Your ruler Saturn is also in your sign this year, which indicates some great opportunities to succeed in all areas of your life. You like to take your time and sort out all the details before proceeding because getting it right is more important than being the first one done (although often you accomplish both). Be aware of Saturn's retrograde from late April until mid-September, when slowdowns will probably sideline your forward progress. Ask for extended deadlines or help if necessary.
Pluto goes direct in your sign in early October, and while it won't be a big sea change for you, of all the signs you'll probably feel the subtleties of this transit the most. Now is your chance to rebuild something from the ground up (figuratively, like your self-esteem or literally like a new house). Hopefully, you've spent the last few months of the retrograde contemplating where things may have gone wrong, so you should be set to start rebuilding on a more solid foundation.
A new year, more changes!
Uranus, your home planet, makes a big change this year. It's relatively slow moving (spending six to seven years in each sign), so it's a major event when it moves from fiery Aries into slower-moving Taurus in early March (which is it's fall position, meaning these two energies are pretty much opposite). Where Uranus likes to experiment, Taurus takes the traditional route. Uranus likes to be an innovator and Taurus says, "I'm good with tradition." Note its retrograde period beginning in mid-August and finishing out the year. Too many attempted outer changes result in the need for inner change. Take time out from your busy schedule to reflect on the lessons you may have missed recently.
Saturn is in Capricorn for the year, indicating a strong work ethic and the need to get serious about some things. Its retrograde period from late April to mid-September is a reminder to not get too lost in your head. Beating yourself up over past mistakes is likely, but not everything is your fault, Aquarius. Give yourself a break and think positively!
Mars is always on a power trip but gets mellowed out somewhat when it moves into Libra's chill presence in October. This is a detrimental position, meaning they don't always play nicely, but you can take advantage of Libra's slightly more laid-back vibe. This isn't the time to try to talk circles around anyone or pull any of your passive-aggressive stuff, though, Aquarius. The direct approach works best.
The big thing for you this year is that your ruler, illusion-filled Neptune, is in your sensitive sign for all twelve months, which means you're mostly a trusting, giving soul who cares about others almost more than you care about yourself. Here's the thing, though, sweet Pisces – Neptune is retrograde between June and late November, exposing the harsh realities that you work so hard to avoid. When the truth first comes out, you might not be so happy, but eventually you'll benefit from the chance to grow from what you learn during this brutally honest time.
The sun will be traveling through your deep waters between late February and the end of March, when you think of the glass half full instead of half empty and you tend to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. You can't (and won't) deny getting burned by people's sob stories in the past, but you aren't going to let that stop you from trying to help someone who needs it in the future. You're one of the least jaded signs around, Pisces, and that's admirable.
Pushy Mars doesn't visit your sign at all this year, but it will stop by your fellow water signs – Cancer for about six weeks starting in mid-May and Scorpio from mid-November to year's end. Mars doesn't mix very well with Cancer's emotional moods, but Mars is at home in determined Scorpio, so be sure to take advantage of that powerful energy when it arrives.
