January Astrology Forecast 2019

A wave of expansion and joy enter the atmosphere, after months of intensity, change, drama, sudden upheaval and a very unpleasant psychic environment. Jupiter in Sagittarius brings new perspectives, humor and optimism to the table. Good time to make a vision board for 2019. Where would you like to travel? What would you like to learn? What long range goals can you commit to? This is an opportunity to broaden the vista, think big, take that risk and expect miracles. The portal is open to the magic unfolding in your life. Let go of 2018 and whatever has created conflict or disrupted your peace. Burning rituals are great for this. Write out whatever you want to let go of: person, job, problem, belief, etc. Throw it in the fire and burn away. You may also want to follow up with an intentional burn: what do you want to create in 2019! Lots of surprises are in store for most of you- believe! Uranus goes direct in Aries until April 2019. Time to clean up any frantic, overwhelming behavior that has crept into your life the past 7 years. Uranus the revolutionary has stirred the pot and we are all wanting some peace and grounded reality. The next 4 months may reveal some unexpected outcomes to the explosive, ranting behavior of our current politicians ( nothing else needs to be said). This year it is time to make the changes you have been putting on hold. Bringing out your lightness of being, sharing your creativity and love, upgrading your life to fulfill your purpose. Last year many people let go of old baggage, old dreams and outdated concepts. Settling in relationships, old jobs, ruts- JUST WASN’T OK anymore! We all deserve more and to be happy. This year is about opening our hearts to a deeper level! Community involvement, parties, social networks are enhanced. Needing to connect becomes a priority and letting go of isolation. Trusting your intuition, following the subtle whispers and welcoming the magic. Get ready for the unexpected!

Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn both want results. There is focus, tenacity and strong will power to take advantage of. We have done major excavations of our soul over the past year and there appears to be a lightness of being ready to emerge. Very productive and purposeful time. This is the year to be of service in a new way. Time to show up in a bigger way. Not a time to hide your talents or say someday i will do that. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn persevere  with sheer determination and tenacity. Procrastination is not part of the equation.  Pluto in Capricorn is the planet that cuts to the core and weeds out what is no longer needed. It is essential to pay attention to your inner divining rod! Now is the time for reclaiming the magic in our lives and opening up to possibilities that seemed unlikely. The energies on the planet are intense and are teaching us to flow instead of forcing the river. Allowing and Accepting, will align us with Neptune (the divine). Time to break out of boxes that are so out of date and keeping you small. Time to bring your life into present time. The baggage needs to go. We are lightening our load and the vibrancy of the new reality cannot occur with denseness of the past. Listen to your soul and check in to see what your dreams are telling you. Many people are feeling a need to move, break out of relationships, change careers and live differently. Have you been feeling overwhelmed? Exhausted? Sensitive to energies? Join the club. Make sure you exercise and get out in nature. Grounding is especially crucial during this shake-up.  Solar Eclipse New Moon in Capricorn is January 5th,  Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo is January 20th.

URANUS in Taurus

Uranus is the planet of revolution, change, awakening,  sudden intuitive hits, and innovation. Uranus in Aries has spent the last seven years activating the world in warrior fashion. Chaos, upheaval, rebellion, protests have occurred to change the world. Now that Uranus is in Taurus, the way in which change takes place will be on a very different vibration. Taurus is one sign that does not like change. It wants comfort, security and money in the bank.  Uranus will rebel in the world of money, fashion, business, beauty and security. How we view our own security can change directions. Uranus wants to be free from being tied down. We will find unique ways to create businesses, new trends with fashion, less conservative tastes, more color in homes and unique housing villages getting launched. This seven year phase will get the ball moving with intentional housing communities for the baby boomer generation. Good time to create your own trend and not follow others. Let your unique artistic style stand out.     The energy we experience in a Uranian transit, can affect our bodies with lots of nervous energy, anxiety, insomnia and a feeling of being in a blender. Clearing out the inner clutter will open up new territories that have not been discovered before. It is important to ground yourself during these times with yoga, hikes and psychic protection techniques.

Saturn in Capricorn

Saturn, the taskmaster is in the sign Capricorn until December 2020. Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn and is very comfortable here. Saturn loves structure, discipline and commitment. Capricorn loves accomplishing, respect, goals and status. This is a very good time to bring your goals into reality and work hard to accomplish. While Saturn was traveling through Sagittarius the past two and half years, we were looking at possibilities and exploring. Now it’s time to do the dirty work. Capricorn is an earth sign and needs to move in small increments. Create a goal chart or any system that can track your success. Look in your chart to see what house Saturn is traveling through and this will show where you need to get it together.

Jupiter in Sagittarius

Jupiter, the planet of expansion and luck begins a year long journey through Sagittarius, the sign of travel, knowledge and humor. What a great combo- the ruler of Sagittarius in its own sign. This is a year to explore your options, travel to exotic countries, move to another country, learn a foreign language, get out of your comfort zone, start believing your own philosophy, grow, think bigger and open to new positive energy. Look where Jupiter is traveling in your chart and that will be the area that needs expanding, upgrading and growth. For example: Jupiter traveling through your 3rd house (good time to write a book), 4th house (good time to move, renovate or sell your home) and 10th house ( time for a promotion, career change, to make a debut).
