What this months zodiac say about you

If you're still feeling all kinds of fired up about your New Year's resolutions, that's no coincidence. All of the planets are still moving direct this month, which is huge for your motivation, making you ready to dive into all areas of your life and get sh*t done.

The vibe of the full moon on January 31 still resonates into February, giving you a serious urge to follow your heart. You’ll be all about doing what brings you joy and love as a result. The new moon on the 15th is also a solar eclipse—and a solid reminder to be true to yourself.

Several planets head into water signs around the middle and end of the month, giving you all kinds of great new ideas in the process. Maybe you should put a statement wall in your bedroom or start a side business with your BFF.

 

 

taurus horoscope
ARIES (MARCH 21–APRIL 19)

You’ve been all about work lately, but you’re itching to have fun, too. Still, you’ll be tempted to try to get your career in order ASAP. Do you still like what you’re doing? And would you be more fulfilled somewhere else? Only you know the answers. Between all that hard thinking, you’ll want to get out and have fun. Hit up a wine bar with friends, try out new restaurants, and sample different coffees at your local shop. Mars, the planet of exploration, is in the sector of your chart about learning, so you’ll want to get out and do new things—it’ll make you feel amazing.

Heads up: With both Mars and Uranus in your sign, your legendary impatience may be at an all-time high (along with your temper and volatility). Reckless emotions could thwart an important mission! Instead of locking horns with an opponent, opt for smashing through obstacles and shattering glass ceilings. This planetary pairing will rev up your resolutions, so tap into that fearlessness and leap into something new.
 
Luckily, some cosmic counterforces will keep your feet (or at least a couple toes) on the ground. The Sun is in steady Capricorn until January 20, heating up your tenth house of structure and long-term goals. And on January 5, the year's first new moon lands in Capricorn, in close proximity to regimented Saturn. There will be an air of gravitas to anything you do, especially around your career.
 
This new moon is also the first of January's TWO eclipses, which will add even more dramatic flair to the month. The January 5 event is a solar eclipse, which brings a turbo-charged fresh start. Solar eclipses can catapult you into a wildly different path, and since this one is in Capricorn and your career corner, it could involve a major professional change. You may need to make some quick decisions since eclipses can sweep in and demand sudden action. An offer might come out of the blue, possibly for something more serious than you expected or with a higher degree of leadership and responsibility.
But don't leap in unless your heart is 100 percent in this, Aries. On January 11, the bold Sun and deep-diving Pluto will make their once-a-year conjunction (meetup), melding their powers in Capricorn and your ambitious tenth house. You could have a clarifying epiphany about the path you truly want to follow. As tempting as an offer or project might be, make sure it speaks to your spirit, not just your ego. Prestige and perks are great—but will they come at the expense of your happiness?
 
You could hit a soul-searching snag on January 13, when the first of this year's three squares forms between expansive Jupiter and nebulous Neptune. Jupiter is spending nearly the entire year in Sagittarius and your risk-taking ninth house, urging you to throw aside caution and follow your loftiest visions. But this right hook from hazy Neptune in Pisces and your emotional twelfth house could interrupt your wanderlust with everything from guilt trips to a loved one's confusing S.O.S.
 
You don't have to let it put a total damper on your spirit, Aries, but DO tune in to the deeper message of any "issues" that crop up. Is there something you've overlooked in your eagerness? Are you trampling people's feelings by being too blunt or rushing the process? You're also potentially at risk for falling under the spell of a charismatic guru figure or getting so swept away in a big dream that you stray too far from reality. There will be two more Jupiter-Neptune squares—on June 16 and September 21—but you'll feel their tug of war for the better part of 2019. Prepare to wrestle with an urge to escape reality in the coming months as you find your visionary groove.
 
Some lightness arrives on January 20, when the Sun moves into Aquarius for a month, charging up your eleventh house of groups and friends. Run some of your wilder ideas by your tribe—especially the friends and mentors who always keep it real. Collaborations could heat up now, too, so look for people whose contributions can take your concepts to new heights.
 
But save some spotlight moments for yourself! On January 21, the Leo full moon arrives—bedecked as a supermoon AND a total lunar eclipse. It lands in your fifth house of fame, romance and creativity, a rare and showstopping moment. This is THE day to put your talents on display or to wear your heart on your sleeve. Since lunar eclipses can bring abrupt transitions, this one could spark an unexpected shot at fame, a shocking confession or, for some Aries, a surprise pregnancy. If you've been holding back any feelings, they might all come rushing out rather dramatically. Careful what you unleash, though, because once it's out in the open, it will be hard, if not impossible, to take it back!
 
This is an especially significant eclipse because it's the grand finale in a lunar series that's been touching down on the Leo/Aquarius axis since February 2017. Your entire approach to love, creativity, friendship and collaboration has been radically revamped over the past two years. You've learned how to play well with others, and also how to put your unique gifts on display when it's time for your solo star turn. Now you're ready for the world to meet Aries 2.0—in vivid, saturated color!
But is your public ready for YOU? The same day as the lunar eclipse, assertive Mars in Aries will lock horns with uptight Saturn in your stuffy tenth house. The "parent figures" in your life (whether your actual parents or just the more conservative members of your circle) may be a bit taken aback by your unfiltered persona. One solution? Don't invite them to the viewing party! Or at least give them fair warning that things could get racy.
 
It may simply be that you're tired of biting your tongue, and you NEED to speak your truth, even if it flies in the face of other people's "should"s and conventions. Some Aries may feel like they can't be themselves, especially at work or in your public life. You don't like being disingenuous, but at the same time, what are you trying to accomplish here? Maybe you don't have to jeopardize your reputation or alienate important colleagues in order to "do you." Or maybe you just have to start caring less.
 
Either way, you'll get a much warmer reception if you wait until January 25, when Mars in your expressive first house will form a harmonious trine to jovial Jupiter in your outspoken and worldly ninth house. Your fearless energy will translate as radiant rather than rebellious. You'll be exuding so much optimism and positive energy that your big ideas will seem irresistible. So maybe give that January 21 eclipse a few days to settle and save the grand declarations or life-altering decisions for the end the month.

Aries Personality:  

Ruled by Mars, the fiery red planet of energy and drive. In mythology, Mars was the god of war and aggression. Highly impatient and competitive, many Aries have the fighting spirit of your mythological ruler. You love to be a hero–or to be swept away by one. As the zodiac’s first sign, you were born to be number one. You’re a solo star who steals the spotlight and inspires everyone with your confidence. Yeah, you can be impatient, even a little bossy, especially when you don’t get your way. As the “baby” of the zodiac, you need lots of attention, and can throw quite the tantrum when you don’t get it. Fortunately, you rarely have a problem turning heads. Your friends love to follow as you lead them on the latest adventure. Make sure to let other people be the boss every now and then, too, or you could alienate potential allies. Focus your competitive streak into a diva-worthy goal, delegate to your troops, and you’ll rise to the top! 

 

 

 

taurus
TAURUS (APRIL 20–MAY 20)

You’ll find yourself feeling a little restless on the job lately. Is there anything else you need to know to help you land that new opening you’ve been eyeing? If an opportunity pops up to learn new work skills, grab it. You’ll also find yourself struggling to find a good balance between your work life and friendships. If you’ve been stuck at the office after-hours lately, make plans to bring takeout to a buddy’s house when you get off. It’ll feel great to catch up. You may notice yourself giving some friendships the side-eye lately, and that’s okay. If you find that certain friends aren’t adding to your life, maybe they’re not worth your time anymore.

The Sun will also make two of its most important annual conjunctions (meetups) this month. On January 2, it will unite with sober Saturn, preventing you from getting TOO carried away. Keep your hooves on the ground even if your head is in the stars! Then on January 11, el Sol will unite with transformational Pluto to make sure you pack enough soul into your goals. You could have a metaphysical moment, when it feels like things are being divinely arranged on your behalf. Suspend your sensible side a little and infuse some magic into your agenda.
 
Anything "good" or "bad" that happens will be a potent message steering you onto your correct path. If you've veered off-course, expect a sharp slap on the wrist from the universe that you can't ignore. (And say "thank-you!" not "ouch!") If you're on your path, you could get an affirmation that's too clear to ignore in the first couple weeks of January. Don't be surprised if a powerful or influential person rewards you for your excellence. Use any gains for good, Taurus, and the magnetic karma will just keep flowing your way! 
 
Speaking of karma, this month brings some activity in your twelfth house of healing, closure and mysticism, thanks to Mars and Uranus, which are both charging their batteries in Aries. Go-getter Mars will be in this powered-down zone from January 1 until February 14, which could spark anything from a clandestine attraction to a strong urge to do some deep forgiveness work or to help those less fortunate than you. The twelfth house rules escape, so if you slipped too far into imbibing and partying over the holidays, you might decide to hop on the "dry January" bandwagon. If you're still tempted to keep emptying those bottles or bingeing on leftovers, stress may be the culprit. While the red planet is in this zone of buried emotions, take a deeper dive (with a therapist or healer, maybe) into anything that comes up. There's no shame in needing support, Taurus! This month is also potent for any spiritual exploration.
 
On January 6, changemaker Uranus will end a five-month retrograde, zooming forward in Aries and unearthing a lot of heavy feelings and buried baggage. The next two months are a crucial time for releasing anything that no longer serves you—from toxic ties to lingering resentments to a behavior you've outgrown. Shed those like a bad habit, Taurus! Uranus is a rip-the-Band-Aid-off kinda planet, so there's no need to coddle anyone here. Sometimes you just have to say "buh-bye" and not look back.
 
Your bigger incentive? On March 6, Uranus will return to Taurus for an eight-year adventure, sending shockwaves through your comfort zone until April 2026. Get ready for a major reinvention tour that will send you down a whole new path. You already had a taste of this from May 15 until November 6, 2018, when Uranus took a quick dip in Taurus—its first visit to your sign in 77 years. This is a once-in-a-lifetime phase that will outright revolutionize your identity and attitude toward life. By early March, you can start making strategic moves on the chessboard.
 
But first you could have a white-light epiphany about the people on Team Taurus. On January 13, starry-eyed Jupiter and dreamy Neptune will lock into their first of three rare squares this year. This conflicting angle can bring confusion, mixed messages and uncertainty about whom you should trust. You may also be conflicted about officializing things in a business or romantic relationship. With Jupiter in your intimate eighth house, a bond has been developing quickly. But can you truly be your most authentic self here—and develop your independent pursuits as well? With Neptune in your freedom-seeking eleventh house, an all-consuming connection might start to feel claustrophobic.
 
Before you do anything irreversible, try to initiate an honest conversation. Sharing your truth can shock people a little, but it's better than being secretive. Once all the cards are on the table, make an informed decision. And remember, this is a process. The next two Jupiter-Neptune squares will be on June 16 and September 21, so prepare to seek that sweet spot between freedom and commitment all year.
 
You'll be eager to lean into your #goals starting January 20, when the Sun plows into Aquarius and your tenth house of career, ambition and structure for a month. If you've been scattered in too many directions, Aquarius season will help you focus. Refine your resolutions and set them to a master plan.
 
On January 21, the month's second eclipse arrives. This one is a Leo supermoon and total lunar (full moon) eclipse in your domestic fourth house. Anything from a move to a pregnancy is possible under this dramatic lunation. An issue related to your living situation or a female relative could finally resolve. You've been waiting two years for this moment—ever since the Leo/Aquarius eclipse series began back in February 2017 and rippled across this axis every six months since then. Your career AND your personal life have been treated to radical makeovers. Finding work-life balance has been filled with plot twists. But the unpredictable changes were not in vain, and you should realize what it was all for, in the grander scheme, within a month of this date.
 
The same day as the Leo lunar eclipse, aggravator Mars in your twelfth house of imagination and transitions will lock into a tense square with stubborn Saturn. If you got overly excited and rushed into something without conducting due diligence, prepare for a hard slam of the brakes from above. You could hit an impasse with a project that had you so excited earlier this month, or you might realize that there are a few more layers to this story than you anticipated. Try not to get sucked into a spiral of overwhelm.
 
On January 25, one of the month's most powerful moments arrives as Mars syncs up in a galvanizing trine with expansive Jupiter in your intimate, merger-minded eighth house. Could you go farther by teaming up? Make a bold proposal. This is a divine day for attracting a soulmate or deepening your bond. The key? Being authentic and transparent about how you feel. You don't need a perfect, canned speech. In fact, you should avoid over-preparing at all costs. Speaking and acting from the heart will be your best GPS on this magical, seize-the-moment day.

Taurus Personality: 

Ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. Your sign loves great food, romance and beautiful things. Venus kicks your five senses into high gear, so you are are happiest when surrounded by the best of everything. Satin sheets, gourmet dinners, a glass of red wine, and boom…you’re relaxing into one of your famous, 14-hour naps. Not that you don’t work hard, too. Like a bull, Taurus operates at two speeds: either totally relaxed, or charging headfirst towards a target. You prefer to keep the peace, but when you’re pushed past your limit, watch out! Underneath it all, you just want to be comfortable, and surrounded by life’s finest offerings. Taurus knows what s/he likes, and that’s that. You stick with your opinions, and you don’t change unless there’s a really good reason. You can be stubborn…but on the upside, you’re also loyal and dependable. Just be careful not to get stuck in a safety zone or your life could become stagnant. Take a chance and try something new. 

 

gemini
GEMINI (MAY 21–JUNE 20)

Mars, the planet of inspiration and motivation, is opposite your sign this month—creating a little opposition between you and the people around you. Why does everyone suddenly want to go that movie you’re not interested in, or insist on having dinner at that restaurant you know you won’t like? Instead of getting ticked off, go with it. Different ideas can bring new possibilities into your life, and you may find that you like something more than you thought you would. You’ll find you have a bunch of new ideas this month that are all connected to learning more. Maybe you should read that classic book you missed in high school, or take a cooking course at your local culinary school. Branching out from your usual will feel amazing.

Your rigor could pay off, too. The Sun is traveling in close proximity to structured Saturn in Capricorn as the calendar turns, making you especially driven about your goals. Saturn rules boundaries, and it might be necessary to "shield your field" so you don't absorb all the distracting energies swirling around you. This sobering Sun-Saturn alliance could force you to deal with some of the heavier stuff you've been avoiding—emotionally, financially or spiritually. Go inward, but don't get lost in there. Since Saturn rules mentors, a therapist or coach could be a crucial guide as you enter any complex new terrain.
 
The January 5 Capricorn solar (new moon) eclipse will catalyze this transformational energy as it kicks off a six-month cycle around intimacy, long-term finances and powerful awakenings. You could feel a shot of clarity that makes you sit up straight. There's no time to mess around when you're on a mission. This eclipse could also plant the seeds for a relationship to move toward permanent status, whether that's a joint business venture, an engagement, a pregnancy or some other kind of merging.
 
Since the eighth house rules property, this eclipse could find you suddenly signing a lease on office space, checking out real estate listings or sinking a "for sale" sign in your lawn. You could hear word of an intriguing passive-income offer (do your research thoroughly!) or a joint venture. Since Saturn rules experts, working with a trusted financial adviser might be your best investment in 2019. Ask your friends for recommendations. Then make a New Year's resolution to get more fiscally savvy, no matter how much you earn. It's what you do with it that matters!
 
Earmarking funds for a cutting-edge project might become a priority starting January 6, when innovator Uranus ends a five-month retrograde. Between now and March 6, Uranus will finish up a long visit to Aries and your eleventh house of teamwork, technology and social justice, where it's spent the bulk of its time since 2011. After March, Uranus will leave this zone, not to return again in your lifetime. So if you're fired up about a world-changing mission or an important cause, start spreading your message!
 
Evaluate the company you keep, too. There could be a couple big changes in your inner circle, especially since ambitious Mars will be in Aries from January 1 to February 14. You want to hang out with influencers and go-getters, not complainers who treat you like their on-demand therapist. This Mars-Uranus cycle could also spark amazing synergies with a friend or ignite a meeting of the minds, perhaps with a person you meet online. Stay open! Networking can bring some interesting characters into your world over the next couple months. Invest in tickets to that industry event or conference where you can meet like-minded people. Follow the tribe—or start your own if you can't find one that suits you.
 
Caveat: As you meet all these fascinating folks, you'll need to keep some boundaries in place. On January 13, the first of this year's three rare Jupiter-Neptune squares could find you swept up in the magic and losing your sense of judgment. With expansive Jupiter in your relationship house and starry-eyed Neptune in your career zone, you could feel conflicted over the way too many demands for your time and attention. You can't do it all at once, nor can you please everyone. Watch for guilt trips, and don't promise more than you can humanly deliver. On the flip side, make sure anyone who raises YOUR hopes and expectations can actually come through. The next two Jupiter-Neptune squares occur in June and September. Throughout the year, it could be tricky juggling the dueling imperatives of your career and relationship. Do your best, but don't bite off more than you can chew.
 
Your appetite for "more-more-more" will only increase on January 20, when the Sun enters Aquarius and your abundant ninth house. Peek out from your cocoon and look at the big picture. You've set your goals for 2019—now, what about your dreams? From travel to study to launching a visionary idea, your mind is on the inspiring possibilities. And now that you've done your due diligence, you should be ready to take some leaps of faith.
 
The next day, January 21, adds even more rocket fuel as we welcome the Leo full supermoon—a total lunar eclipse in your third house of communication and kindred spirits. This eclipse could serve up a surprising conversation, one that finally helps you decide which direction to head in next. There may be a powerful chance to collaborate, perhaps through a writing, educational or media project. A sibling or neighbor might be involved in this turning-point lunation.
 
This is the grand finale in a two-year series of eclipses that have rippled across the Leo/Aquarius axis since February 2017, transforming your approach to communication, long-distance connections, travel and ideas. You may have moved to a new neighborhood, put your ideas into writing or a creative format, and gathered a motley crew of kindred spirits from diverse backgrounds. Now, as the last Leo eclipse signs off, you should feel confident about your message and mission in the world—and excited to share it.
 
But don't waste time worrying about who "gets" it, Gemini. In fact, there may be some people who are jealous and unsupportive, especially as your voice gets louder and your presence more visible. Do NOT waste energy trying to convince them to see the light. Instead, keep doing you and connecting with people who want what you're serving. This becomes clear at the Leo lunar eclipse because that same day, Mars in your eleventh house of groups will lock into a tight square with Saturn, reminding you that your vibe attracts your tribe! Keep it on the highest possible level and don't get hooked by trying to seek their approval.
 
You'll be so glad you did because on January 25, Mars will swing into a flowing trine with abundant Jupiter, electrifying your interpersonal houses. An exciting connection might turn into an official partnership, whether for business or love. Things could move quickly, and you could feel a flood of amazing support from people who want to lift you up and help spread the word about what you're doing. Pay it forward by doing the same for someone whose work YOU admire. Ah, the power of community!

Gemini Personality:

A busy machine, always moving at warp speed. That’s because your sign is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication. Mercury also rules technology and the mind, making Gemini one of the most curious and cutting-edge signs of the zodiac. If two is double the fun, then as the sign of the twins, you know it’s true! There are at least two personalities inside of you at all times. Adventurous Geminis change faster than the weather, and constantly flip between moods and interests. One day, you’re into frilly, girl stuff. The next day, you’re over that and skydiving out of an airplane. If possible, try to stick with a couple key passions for the long haul, and get really good at them. You love to chatter and you have a million great ideas. Keep your fast-moving mind and hands busy with email, instant messages, mobile gadgets, and great conversations. Watch a temptation to gossip. Keep a notebook handy to jot down your thoughts at all times

 

cancer
CANCER (JUNE 21–JULY 22)
Relationships are high up on the agenda as 2019 begins, especially in January. Not only is the Sun making its annual visit to Capricorn and your partnership sector until January 20, but there will be a heavy emphasis on balancing "me" and "we" all year long. How do you team up without losing yourself? It's a lifelong learning curve for you as the zodiac's ultimate giver. This year, you're being propelled to build more mutual connections—in love, friendships and work.
 
The year begins with the Sun traveling in close contact to sober, structured Saturn, which will lend a serious air to this mission, particularly when these two heavenly bodies make an exact meetup on January 2. One of your bonds could turn official, or you may decide to erect a firm boundary with a person who siphons your energy. It's up to YOU to set limits and let people know where you stand.
 
Connections could come together swiftly on January 5, as the first of this year's THREE game-changing eclipses in Capricorn (the other two are in July and December) sweeps through your relationship zone. Someone may make an offer to join forces, and it could come with a considerable dose of clout and responsibility. With accountable Saturn hovering nearby, you might take an unflinching look at your relationships, then start implementing serious steps to improve them. Since Saturn rules experts, working with a coach or therapist could help if an important tie is on the rocks. Even if your relationships aren't in jeopardy, learning new interpersonal skills can take you far this year.
The once-a-year conjunction between the Sun and transformational Pluto on January 11 is the perfect day for delving past the superficial or to meditate on the kind of relationships you want to cultivate now. Write down your insights and intuitive flashes because you could receive some significant signs from the divine today. Single Crabs might connect with someone who feels like a soulmate or kindred spirit. Since Pluto rules the unconscious, an important person could mirror YOUR unresolved issues. If your buttons get pushed, try to see him or her as a messenger and reflect on the lesson you're meant to learn (so you don't have to keep repeating it!).
 
Your career sphere is also activated this month. For starters, ambitious Mars is in Aries and your tenth house of long-term goals from January 1 to February 14, a cycle that only happens every  two years. You'll be on fire pursuing goals but DO try to pace yourself so you don't crash and burn.
 
On January 6, innovator Uranus ends a five-month retrograde and powers forward in Aries, bringing its pioneering influence to your career path. The next two months are crucial for making big professional changes since on March 6, Uranus will depart Aries, not to return in your lifetime. Uranus has been here since 2011, and your work life may have been all over the map during that time! Perhaps you found it hard to fully settle into a job, or a company you worked for went through major restructuring and twists. You might have explored freelancing or an indie business venture or veered into a more cutting-edge field. And if you haven't yet, the first couple months of this year could bring interesting opportunities to make a radical change.
 
Your relationship with your father or an important guy could also undergo major shifts since the tenth house rules men. Is it time to be more authentic and assertive? With both hotheaded Mars and liberated Uranus in Aries, you certainly won't mince words now, especially if you encounter good old-fashioned sexism or toxic masculinity in your midst. And why should you?
 
Analysis paralysis alert! On January 13, the first of this year's three rare Jupiter-Neptune squares could whip up a state of confusion. Dreamy Neptune in your "go big" ninth house tempts you to bite off more than you can realistically chew. You might be considering doing something adventurous and spontaneous—which is actually healthy for your security-minded sign! But Jupiter in your analytical sixth house could bring out your inner control freak, causing you to overthink every option or start micromanaging a process. Find a way to stay open to possibilities without taking foolish risks. You'll grapple with this balance throughout the year as two more exact Jupiter-Neptune squares will arrive on June 16 and September 21.
 
Take a deep dive starting January 20, when the Sun enters Aquarius and your eighth house of merging, intimacy and focus. For the next four weeks, you'll tighten your radius, concentrating only on the highest-priority projects and people. You may crave more privacy, so people will probably have to knock (loudly!) on that Crab shell if they want to find you. And even then, you'll only answer selectively. Hey, you might be busy inventing the next world-changing formula or keeping company with a scintillating soulmate, since the Sun in your erotic eighth house can spell "sexytime."
 
But don't go entirely off the grid just yet, Cancer. On January 21, the Leo full supermoon and total lunar eclipse sweeps through your second house of work and income, which could radically alter the way you earn a living. You may swiftly begin or leave a job—or courageously step onto a whole new path. One Cancer we know, a lifetime corporate exec, is on the verge of starting her own consulting business. She's been dipping a toe into these waters since November—and this eclipse will likely help her decide whether to commit herself fully to this path or not.
 
If you're unsure of next moves around career and money, you can expect cosmic clarity within a few days of the eclipse. Just be prepared for sudden plot twists! Since this is a lunar eclipse, which can bring out-of-the-blue turning points, you could be presented with a prospect that demands a quick decision. It's also possible that a job you're not loving could be "eclipsed" away, forcing your hand. (Should this happen, consider it a favor from the universe, which is only expediting your soul's deepest wishes!)
 
This is the grand finale in a two-year series of eclipses that have reverberated across the Leo-Aquarius axis since February 2017, transforming your approach to money, self-esteem and work. Over the past two years, you may have changed jobs (or job descriptions) several times, or learned how to make your money work harder for you. From property to passive income to paying off debt, opportunities to become fiscally savvy have popped up on the horizon. Now the eclipses will land in Cancer and Capricorn for the rest of 2019, reshaping your personal identity and your closest ties!
 
Also on January 21, Mars in your career zone will lock into a tense square with structured Saturn in your relationship house. Demands from work could cut into quality time with a special someone. Or you may reach an impasse in negotiations with a client or colleague. Is this person intentionally blocking you—or are you being too much of a bulldozer? Pushiness will only drive up their resistance. Slow down and hear their objections to make sure you're not being rash. But be assertive about your needs and ideas. Maybe you're just not presenting them in a way that makes them feel safe or confident about moving forward. A little reframing could get you past this hurdle. And if not? You may decide to let this one go and direct your energy elsewhere.
The stars are much more cooperative on January 25, when Mars will beam into a flowing trine with expansive Jupiter in your sixth house of service. You'll be able to present your ideas as a win-win, and since the sixth house rules helpful people, you'll easily rally Team Crab to support your cause. This dynamic day could bring an exciting moneymaking opportunity, most likely doing work that helps people and betters the world. Making a living AND a difference sounds like the perfect gig for a caring Crab! And with these two bold planets synced up, you're primed to take a risk and just go for it. If you're happy at your current job, you could look for a project with a "giving back" mission—or spearhead one for your company.

 

Cancer Personality: 

Sensitive Cancer Zodiac is ruled by the ever-changing Moon, and your moods go through many cycles. You’re intuitive and nurturing, even psychic. Pay attention to your dreams, especially near a Full Moon. You are sensitive and loyal, with a ready shoulder to cry on. Cancer loves to get domestic, serving your friends and family home-baked goodies and tea. When you get moody, you need to be comforted, or else just left alone. Like a crab, you can cling — or pinch — when you feel threatened or vulnerable. And thrifty Cancers can pinch pennies just as tightly. (Of course, you also love to spend! It’s a mood thing.) To make life easier, surround yourself with comfort: a cozy sweater, a favorite book, trusted friends, and a stash of your favorite goodies. Cancers are close to their moms, so keep yours on speed-dial and call her when you’re down. You may be an unofficial mom to everyone in your life, too. Taking care of kids, friends, and pets can keep your spirits high.

 

Leo horoscope

LEO (JULY 23–AUGUST 22)

Get ready for a cosmic coming-out party! January marks a major turning point as you round out a two-year chapter that's helped you reinvent your personal identity and relationships. Since February 2017, a series of eclipses in Leo and Aquarius have been dramatically reshaping your life. You've found your voice AND your tribe. Hopefully you've stepped into a powerful role that suits your fierce sign—or just unapologetically started being yourself.

 
On January 21, a Leo total lunar eclipse—also a full supermoon (hey, would Leo do it any less dramatically?)—brings one major last hurrah. What's still sitting there on your bucket list, Leo…and what are you waiting for? After today, there won't be any more eclipses in your sign until 2026. The stars give you one last push to really promote your ideas and talents in a big way. Don't sacrifice your dreams for anyone, Leo. This day is yours for the taking, and you'll feel effects for at least two more weeks.
This is all happening against the backdrop of Capricorn season as the Sun visits the Sea Goat's lair until January 20, heating up your sixth house of health, efficiency and work. You're in practical spirits as the year begins, eager to get things handled. This is punctuated by another eclipse (there are two this month!) on January 5, this one a partial solar (new moon) eclipse. It's the first of three Capricorn eclipses in 2019, and it's here to push you onto a healthy and grounded new path. From hiring a helpful assistant or service provider to radically revamping your eating and exercise habits, the Capricorn eclipses of 2019 are here to give Team Leo a makeover. The next two will be in July and December, so between now and the summer, your work and wellbeing could undergo a potent transformation.
 
Structured Saturn is hovering close to the Sun during the first week of January, which will help you get serious about your goals. Since Saturn rules experts, you might work with a coach or mentor to design an actionable, step-by-step plan.
 
But as you drill down into all those micro details, don't lose sight of your inspiring grand visions. Courageous Mars is in Aries and your expansive ninth house from January 1 to February 14, prompting you to take creative risks and think big. Travel, study and entrepreneurship could all figure into events for the first six weeks of 2019. Mars here could tempt you to gamble, but since he only visits here every two years, do SOMETHING. This is not a cycle you want to squander.
 
On January 6, pioneering Uranus, which is also in Aries, ends a five-month retrograde slowdown. Uranus will remain in Aries until March 6, then it won't return again in this lifetime. After that, the side-spinning planet will move into Taurus and your career zone for eight years, shifting your attention to revolutionizing your professional life. If you've got some bucket-list dreams that involve a vacation, a return to school or starting a business, go after them now, before the landscape shifts for good!
 
Cupid could arrive a month early, but alas, he's slinging arrows tipped with mixed messages. On January 13, the first of this year's rare trio of Jupiter-Neptune squares arrives, stirring up a heady cloud of drama and intrigue. Your heart could beat wildly for someone—or things could get heated in a relationship. But with foggy Neptune and jump-the-gun Jupiter locked into this embattled angle, your attraction could turn into an obsession. A little mystery is sexy, but if things aren't adding up about someone, don't go into denial. In other cases, jealously and paranoia may flare, but these feelings could be based on flimsy evidence. Before that inflates into a huge ordeal, calmly get the facts. Some Leos might feel subtly controlled or suppressed by a needy partner, which might bring out your rebellious side. Careful about playing with fire, especially if it only creates more distrust and discord. Rather than fall further down that rabbit hole, step back and try to clear things up. Jupiter and Neptune will square each other in June and September, but you'll feel this dynamic tension all year, as you figure out HOW invested in drama and intensity you should get—and when it's best to pull back and detach!
 
Luckily, you'll be able to balance things out starting January 20, when the Sun enters Aquarius and your seventh house of partnerships. You'll have a month to restore equilibrium in your closest ties and to patiently hash out any differences. A connection you've been building—either in love and business—could turn serious, possibly moving toward official status. Look for ways you can team up with a synergistic soul and go further together.
 
The next day, January 21, is the Leo total lunar eclipse mentioned earlier, a headline date that's all about YOU and your dreams. But before you go blasting off into the stratosphere, there are other cosmic counterforces to navigate. That day also brings an intense clash between rash Mars and sensible Saturn, which could give you a case of whiplash. As speedy Mars in your risk-taking ninth house tempts you to leap off the first cliff you encounter, responsible Saturn in your analytical sixth house slams the brakes and brings out your inner worrywart. You might whip yourself into an anxious state, tossing and turning over a decision.
 
You could be offered something that sounds too good to be true…but also too good to pass up. (Possibilities range from a "free" ticket for an amazing trip to a startup job that offers to pay you in equity.) Do your research but know that you may not have a lot of time to decide before this fleeting opportunity passes. That said, don't let people pressure you by using hard-sell techniques. If they really want you badly enough, they'll let you sleep on it!
 
A much better day to take a leap of faith arrives January 25, when Mars forms a flowing trine with lucky Jupiter in your fifth house of heartfelt passion. You could dive into a new hobby or attract raving fans for your outspoken and courageous moves. If you're an artist, writer or other creative type, this could be a buzzworthy moment. You've got zero aversion to risk now, making this the perfect day to be fierce and fearless.
 
This rare Mars-Jupiter trine could also bring a breathtaking love affair, perhaps with someone you meet while traveling or through a workshop. For coupled Leos, this trine can revive the excitement in your current relationship, especially if you book a spontaneous getaway or sign up for something that takes you both out of your comfort zones.
Leo Personality: 
The Sun is the center of our solar system and the ruler of Leo. When the whole universe revolves around you, it’s hard to be humble! Like the Sun, Leo heats everything up with its dazzling drama. And when the Sun sets, it’s ice, ice baby. That’s why friends of Leo know to keep them happy and shining…or else. Leo is the sign of drama, and oh, can you put on a show! Even the Leos who pretend to be shy come to life in the spotlight. A natural-born leader, you love to be the boss. Leos need mega-doses of praise and appreciation, which may cause people to think you’re self-centered. The truth is, you have a huge heart, and you’re the zodiac’s most generous sign. You’re always there to help, spoil, and protect the people you love. So what if your appetite is huge? Your energy may be hard for others to match. Remember, people express love in different ways, and not everyone can show it like you do. But it’s never boring to be part of your glamorous world, so let your star shine. Somebody’s gotta rule, and it might as well be you!

 

Virgo
VIRGO (AUGUST 23–SEPTEMBER 22)

Who says the party has to end, Virgo? January promises to be one of your most passionate and playful months because the Sun is making its annual rounds through Capricorn and your bold, romantic fifth house. Until January 20, you're as far from being a stereotypical Virgo as it gets, preferring spontaneity to tightly edited New Year's resolution lists. Immerse yourself in creativity and use the first three weeks of the month as a "discovery phase." Keep a sprig of mistletoe up and some unburned Yule logs by the fire. And don't fret if you're behind on your 2019 planning: After January 20, you'll go straight back to typical-Virgo mode and be ready for all manner of self-improvement missions.

Besides, even the best-laid plans are likely to be overturned thanks to two reality-flipping eclipses, arriving on January 5 and 21. The first one is a partial solar (new moon) eclipse in Capricorn, which could fast-track a creative project or your love life. With structured Saturn traveling close to the Sun for the first week of January, all your decisions carry extra clout.
 
Eclipses bring sudden plot twists and unexpected events; a solar eclipse can mark a bold beginning. On January 5, a romantic spark could progress quickly (and suddenly) toward serious status. Fame or recognition might also arrive out of the blue. One of your projects could draw buzzworthy attention or establish you as an expert among your peers. But give it all a few days to settle down since this intense energy can dissipate as quickly as it sweeps in.
 
Strong emotional surges are even more likely because on January 6, frenetic Uranus ends a five-month retrograde, plowing forward in Aries and your eighth house of sex, intimacy and merging. Your feelings could be all over the map for the next two months as Uranus rounds out an eight-year visit to Aries that's brought both chaos and clarity to your finances and feelings. You may have grappled with obsessions and addictions, ups and downs related to your living situation and finances, or a relationship that underwent major power struggles and loyalty tests. Huge spiritual awakenings may have been part of this Uranian journey, which began back in March 2011.
 
On March 6, the side-spinning planet will depart this zone, not to return in your lifetime. (We don't think you'll miss it—though the sex and money might have been pretty phenomenal!) Uranus in Aries could also bring one last round of transformational "inner work" in which you face some shadows and decide who you can truly trust. Some people may be ejected from the Virgo inner circle while other bonds could evolve into something that outlasts any challenge. But take heed: There's a strong tendency to project onto others now, so simply "cutting someone off" won't necessarily get you to the root of your issues. Dig deeper, perhaps with the help of a healer or therapist.
 
On January 13, confusion reigns as the first of this year's three conflicting squares forms between nebulous Neptune in your relationship house and (over)confident Jupiter in your fourth house of home, family and feelings. You could have a hard time getting on the same emotional page as a romantic partner or a close collaborator. With these two escape-artist planets embattled, you might be tempted to bolt. Take it easy, Virgo. Running away never solves anything, even if it soothes you momentarily.
 
Intense feelings and reactions could arise—and you may be especially thin-skinned today, prone to taking everything personally. Parenting or a pregnancy could feel overwhelming for Virgos of the childrearing set. Perhaps you need to bring in some support and expertise, whether that's a doula, a great babysitting service or a better co-parenting arrangement. Virgos who are house-hunting might also feel swept up in anxiety, with too many choices or too much information to absorb at once.
 
Take a deep breath and keep calm because this energy will be ongoing throughout the year, especially over the spring and summer. There will be two more Jupiter-Neptune exact squares on June 16 and September 21, so you've got more learning and growth ahead. Remember, relationships are a two-party system, and they require a lot of back and forth—AND heaping helpings of compassion for yourself and the other person. Instead of doing your Virgo thing of just cutting people off when you're uncomfortable, learn to be more emotionally transparent—and patient!
 
Soon enough, you can shift your attention to more (thankfully) mundane matters, like those New Year's resolutions you've been kinda-sorta ignoring. You're not usually late to the goal-setting party, but your New Year's mojo really doesn't kick in until January 20, when the Sun starts its annual monthlong march through Aquarius and your sixth house of health, wellness and organization. As the natural ruler of the zodiac's sixth house, you'll be in your element. Deep-clean, declutter, renew a fitness studio membership. Forgive yourself for extending the holiday season an extra three weeks—it's your cosmic birthright, Virgo!
 
Ready to finally, FINALLY let go of something that's been holding you back? Whether it's a toxic relationship, a limiting belief or a self-sabotaging habit, the month's second eclipse sweeps in on January 21 to clear that away for good. This is the grand finale in a two-year series of landscape-shifting eclipses that have fallen on the Leo and Aquarius axis since February 2017. Under their influence, you've made major mind, body and soul shifts. Your health (both physical and emotional) may have gone through some fluctuations, and you could have made big changes to your lifestyle.
 
Are you a Virgo who sweats the small stuff? Your detail-oriented sign was put on this planet to keep everything crisp and clear—it's one of your superpowers. But at times, your greatest asset can turn into a detriment, especially when you get overly fixated on things going a certain way. This final Leo eclipse is here to remind you that what you focus on expands. Are you obsessing over petty things, like people judging you or a seeming slight? Have you fallen down a micromanaging rabbit hole? Step back and allow the universe (and some actual human beings) to support you rather than trying to control and fix everything yourself.
 
You might very well resist this at first because also on January 21, intense Mars in your obsessive eighth house will lock into a fraught square with structured Saturn. Mars is like the gas pedal, and Saturn is the brake. One part of you might want to barrel headlong into a power struggle, but Saturn will throw up its emergency flares, warning you of the drama that could ensue if you go there. How much longer are you going to engage in this self-sabotaging behavior, Virgo? Even if it takes all the self-discipline you can summon to stop yourself, it's time to interrupt the patterns that no longer serve you. Have you been afraid to show the world your talents or to be your full self publicly for fear that people will reject you? Cast that worry aside. You've got too much to offer this planet to allow that inner critic to steal your shine.
 
It might take a minute, but on January 25, the planets assist you with being open and transparent, when Mars forms a golden trine with outspoken Jupiter in your creative, caring fourth house. You'll find the courage to wear your heart on your sleeve, whether that means sharing more openly or telling someone how you feel.
 
Mars and Jupiter will also touch down in home and property-related parts of your chart. This could bring an exciting opportunity with real estate or a joint venture. Some Virgos could get news of an inheritance or support from a relative who acts as an "angel investor" to help fund one of your dreams. With gutsy Mars and inspiring Jupiter in sync, you could summon the confidence to ask for that helping hand—something Virgos don't normally do. Allow yourself to receive instead of always being the giver.
Virgo Personality:  
Detail-oriented Virgo is ruled by Mercury, planet of the mind and communication. Virgos are always analyzing everything, forming opinions and judgments. On the outside, you seem sweet and innocent, but your quick mind never misses a detail. Virgo is also the sign of service, and you’re always there when help is needed. You’re an amazing, careful listener, and as a result, you give the best advice. You love to analyze everything! In fact, you can drive yourself crazy, because you never stop thinking. Virgo is a perfectionist who sees every flaw, and at times, you’re a little too critical. Relax your mind by channeling it into a project, like solving a crossword puzzle, writing a story, or organizing your desk. As an earth sign, you love the outdoors, so chill out in nature, or try a sport like karate. Remember, it’s easy for helpful Virgo to give, but harder for you to receive. Let your friends pitch in and support you, too! Try opening up a little more. You don’t have to be perfect to be loveable. Just be yourself.

 

libra
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23–OCTOBER 22)

Don't take the Christmas cards down yet! Your sentimental side will linger well into January, as the first three weeks of the month are peak domestic season for you every year, Libra. The Sun is making its annual sojourn through Capricorn and your fourth house of home and family until January 20. Even if you're not one to keep the tree and lights up until your floor is a carpet of brittle brown needles, your emotions are still a little fragile and in need of TLC.

n fact, family matters are very much front and center for you thanks to two powerful eclipses that arrive this month— particularly the first one. It all begins on January 5, when a partial solar (new moon) eclipse arrives in Capricorn, shaking the branches on your family tree. Your mother or an important woman could figure prominently, perhaps causing you to create new priorities (or boundaries). You might get a sudden urge or opportunity to revamp your living situation. A real estate offer, a pregnancy or changes in your personal life could arrive without notice. Or you might finally make a firm decision about an emotional matter.
 
With weighty Saturn traveling close by (and aligned with the decisive Sun on January 2), you may have to make some serious choices around your living situation or a family member. Let people know your limits, Libra, especially if you've felt trampled on or disrespected. If home life is copacetic, the eclipse could push you to prioritize self-care and, with structured Saturn's influence, to look into setting up a home office or a cottage industry. In some way, you need to carve out some space where you can get serious about your work while still enjoying the comfort of home. Maybe you invest a little holiday cash into an ergonomic chair or a sit-stand desk. Or you spring for some well-made cooking equipment (that Vitamix you're coveting, perhaps?) so you can nourish yourself and stay focused.
 
Relationships could undergo some plot twists starting January 6, when changemaker Uranus ends a five-month retrograde and powers forward in Aries and your seventh house of partnerships. If you've been fighting or unable to see eye-to-eye, especially since November 2018, it's time to hash things out for once and for all. Uranus is wrapping up an eight-year visit to Aries that began back in March 2011, revolutionizing your approach to commitments. With the planet of freedom and authenticity here, you may have had a few bouts of itchy feet—interspersed with adventurous times together. In business, you also learned the power of teaming up with out-of-the-box thinkers. You may have cycled through a few close ties that began and ended abruptly, swinging wildly from "happily ever after" to "oh hell no,"
 
Uranus will remain in Aries until March 6, then it will depart for good, not to return in this lifetime. With hotheaded (and hot-blooded) Mars also in Aries from January 1 to February 14, it seems the stars want you to REALLY sort things out in the relationship department in 2019, Libra! A connection could zoom toward official status, or you might need to finally learn how to express your anger in a productive and effective way. Your sign is not a fan of conflict but swallowing your feelings when you're upset will only lead to resentment and chaos. Still, going to the other extreme (Libra on the warpath!) will only send your scales swinging wildly in the opposite direction.
 
With Uranus paying its last respects to your relationship sector, you owe it to yourself to make some radical changes in your interpersonal dynamics. If you've been too nice, it's time to start getting real. If you're being selfish or conniving, come out and ask for what you need—but also learn to take "no" for an answer (something sweet-talking Libras could stand to improve upon). Charming and disarming might get you what you want in the short term, but if people feel they've been manipulated into doing things your way, they'll be angry later on.
 
Still, you might need a minute to really think through what you want to say as you bring your relationships back to a mutual and fair place. Mid-month is an important time to pause for that very cause. On January 13, the first of this year's three bewildering squares forms between impulsive Jupiter and foggy Neptune, which could muddle your messaging or find you agreeing to things you're not entirely comfortable with.
 
With Jupiter in your communication house and Neptune in your analytical sixth house, details are likely to be obscured. This is NOT the time to "go with your gut" and just sign on the dotted line. If you don't thoroughly understand something, ask questions until you do. There will be two more exact Jupiter-Neptune squares in June and September, and it's an energy you'll navigate for much of the year.
 
Ready to let loose and have a little fun? On January 20, the Sun throws a four-week fiesta in Aquarius and your fifth house of creativity, love and joie de vivre. A winter romance could heat up now. Hibernation plans are abruptly cut short, but you'll have lots of tempting reasons to dress up and brave the temperatures. And if you don't? Get busy organizing some lively events that will transform dreary days into vibrant ones.
 
A perfect day to start arrives January 21, when the Leo full supermoon and total lunar eclipse sets your eleventh house of groups and networking ablaze. This is the final eclipse in a two-year series on the Leo/Aquarius axis that began in February 2017. These eclipses have totally transformed your approach to love, friendship and collaboration. In fact, if you look around, you may realize that your entire social circle looks very different than it did a couple years back. Some people have emerged as superstar allies while former BFFs may have become estranged.
 
As the cheesy coffee-mug saying goes, some people come into your life for either a reason, a season or a lifetime. This grand finale eclipse will reveal which category certain people fall into. Don't try to force a friendship to work if you can't get on the same wavelength. Wish them well and go forth with a tight-knit tribe of people who are aligned with your highest purpose. This eclipse could also bring an exciting collaboration or a chance to join an inspiring group that will advance your greatest goals. Put your energy into THAT, and you could soar.
 
Also on January 21, intense Mars in your relationship house will form a tough square with rigid Saturn in Capricorn and your family zone. It's possible that your loved ones could express concern or disapproval about your romantic choices. Are you overly dependent on their feedback, Libra? Perhaps it's time to set some clear boundaries. Or maybe you need to listen to their feedback instead of resisting it. Could they possibly have a valid point?
 
It will be much easier to get in sync with people on January 25, when Mars forms a harmonious trine to expansive Jupiter in your communication zone. With these two assertive and outspoken planets in your interpersonal houses, you can speak your truth today. But remember to keep an open mind and truly consider where the other person is coming from. The goal is to reach an understanding so that everyone gets their needs met. Use your natural gifts of diplomacy for the win.

 

Libra Personality: 

Gentle Libra is ruled by Venus, planet of beauty and love. Perhaps that explains your smooth talk and pretty face. Like Taurus, which is also Venus-ruled, Libras love to be surrounded by art, culture and beauty in a soft, harmonious environment. You love good food and expensive things. Lovely Libra knows how to charm but behind your dimples and sweet personality, you’re a fighter. Libra is the sign of the scales, and you can’t stand anything that’s unfair or unbalanced. You love a designer outfit as much as you adore a good debate. You’ll stand up for justice, and you’ll do it with style. Libra hates to be rushed–you prefer that everything happen your way, on your time. If that means you’re ten hours late, so be it. You’re a social butterfly who loves to be surrounded by people in a beautiful setting, talking and hanging out for hours. Just remember to save some time for yourself. Libras can get so caught up in the moment, they forget to handle their own responsibilities. Learn the beauty of being organized, and you’ll have all the time in the world to enjoy your beautiful life.

scorpio
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23–NOVEMBER 21)

Don't let the party end! Your social spirits continue well into the third week of January—and you won't be ready for full-on winter hibernation until after January 20. The Sun is spinning through Capricorn and your chatty third house, spurred on by a January 5 solar (new moon) eclipse here. This is the first of this month's two transformational eclipses, which will sweep in and radically change up the energy right as the year begins.

The Capricorn solar eclipse on January 5 will bring a shot of clarity to your goals and ideas for the year ahead. You could meet a kindred spirit out of the blue or have a conversation that sets you on a dynamic new path, one that will unfold between now and July. A neighbor, sibling or colleague may be involved in events near this eclipse, helping you formulate your thoughts or see things from a new perspective.
 
Since the third house rules local affairs, you might get involved in your community or start developing a big idea on a smaller, neighborhood-based scale. Taking any venture one step at a time will allow you to test and perfect your formula along the way, Scorpio, which will work in your favor in the long run. A project that involves writing, learning or teaching can arise unexpectedly. Thinking of returning to school or publishing your work? You could move from idea to action quickly in the coming months.
 
With serious Saturn traveling close to the Sun the first week of January (and making an exact meetup on January 2), some talks could have extra gravitas. Don't speak or listen lightly—come through with any promises, and be sure to follow up with any intriguing contacts you make. Get that coffee date firmly on the calendar!
 
This is the first of three eclipses that will land in Capricorn in 2019 (the next two are in July and December), reshaping your approach to communication, travel and ideas. Your 2019 could usher in a whole new mindset—and this "attitude adjustment" can attract opportunities that you'd otherwise miss. Be open to seeing things differently, Scorpio, and to accept input from some savvy new allies. When the Sun conjuncts (joins) your co-ruler, alchemical Pluto, on January 11, you could have a mind-blowing conversation with a powerful person who can take your plans to the next level. This is the perfect day for a strategy session or to put all those swirling ideas onto paper!
 
Your desire to get a grip on the details intensifies on January 6, when tech-savvy Uranus ends a five-month retrograde, powering forward in Aries and your analytical, health-conscious sixth house. You'll feel intensely driven to whip your life and skills into fighting shape, especially since go-getter Mars is also in Aries from January 1 to February 14. With competitive Mars in the mix, the year could get off to an athletic start as these two motivated planets spur you to pursue healthy living. Just keep your wits about you since their impulsive and volatile energy could make you accident-prone or susceptible to a sports-related injury if you make a wrong move. Easy does it, okay? If you slow down and focus, you could accomplish a ton, both a work and with your fitness goals. Just don't overdo it!
 
On March 6, Uranus will depart Aries, not to return in your lifetime. The side-spinning planet has been in Aries since 2011, revolutionizing your approach to work and wellness. You've learned to adapt and try new systems, especially ones that use technology. The next couple months are ideal for implementing any new apps or "smart" devices that can help all the moving parts of your life integrate more smoothly. If you're shopping the post-holiday sales, check for deals on high-end equipment. Time to invest in that Vitamix or Peloton bike, Scorpio?
 
The sixth house rules employees, so if you're a business owner, you may have cycled through a few team members, upleveling with each round of hires and fires. What have you learned from your mistakes and missteps? Other Scorpios could have worked unconventional jobs or experimented with a new approach to handling your day-to-day systems. You may want to take a couple more months to train or boost your skill set before committing to a long-term path.
 
On January 13, expansive Jupiter locks into the first of this year's three tense squares to hazy Neptune, an aspect that can stir up confusion and delusion. Jupiter in your stable second house is completely at odds with nebulous Neptune in your passion sector, and you'll feel pulled in two contrasting directions. Drama in your love life could preempt your career goals, or you might be spending way too much money trying to romance or impress someone. As work responsibilities increase, you may find yourself rebelling by seeking hedonistic escape hatches—from bingeing on too much food and drink to obsessing over a love interest or office crush. Two more Jupiter-Neptune squares are due in June and September, and you'll feel this tension throughout the year. Consider it an urgent call for balance. As expansive Jupiter invites you to "lean in" and make those money moves, be sure you're enjoying enough pleasurable respites in between the hard work and hustle. That way, you're less tempted to rebel.
 
Taking a slower pace will help after January 20, when the Sun starts its monthlong visit to Aquarius and your soothing, domestic fourth house. Now you're in the mood for nesting and winter coziness. Bring on the hygge ambience and bonding! Entertain at home with movie nights and dinner parties instead of going out. But don't feel an ounce of guilt if you just want to be alone with a great book or soak in a hot bath then call it an early night.
 
But first, a major career moment will halt your hibernation on January 21. A total lunar (full moon) eclipse—and supermoon—sweeps through Leo, igniting your tenth house of success and ambition. A goal you've been working toward since this summer could reach a peak moment. But it's even bigger than that, Scorpio. This is the grand finale in a two-year series of eclipses on the Leo/Aquarius axis that began in February 2017, shaking up both your domestic and your career sectors. Work-life balance got a major makeover, and through a series of unexpected plot twists, you've been catapulted closer to your path. This last eclipse could rocket you into a position of leadership or a newfound sense of authority. If you've been ready for a big change, you could make a radical turn in a new direction—or finally reach the summit you've been striving for. Since the tenth house rules men, a key male (possibly your dad or a father figure) could play into events at this lunar eclipse.
 
You may have a few choice words to say because, also on January 21, tough Saturn in your communication house will lock into a tense square with fiery Mars in your analytical sixth house. Your already sharp tongue could be a deadly weapon to anyone who dares to verbally cross you. (Maybe you ought to bite it instead of lashing out with it?) Watch your stress levels today, as this Mars-Saturn conflict could spin you into a state of anxiety. With speedy Mars stepping on the gas and uber-cautious Saturn pumping the brakes, decision-making could be next to impossible. You'll second-guess yourself at every turn, and it'll be hard to shut your spinning mind off. Feeling out of control? Channel any frustration into a good workout and some proper self-care instead of gripping tighter.
 
You'll be far more confident and charismatic on January 25, when Mars makes a graceful trine to abundant Jupiter in your grounded second house. This could be an excellent day for taking a calculated financial risk or figuring out your next professional steps. Put yourself out there unapologetically, and you could be offered an exciting opportunity. If you're hiring (or firing), this Mars-Jupiter trine could attract a savvy new righthand person to Team Scorpio. Unlike a few days earlier, you'll come from a positive and inspiring place, which is certain to work in your favor.

 

Scorpio Personality: 

Intense Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, planet of power and control. Pluto is a tiny powerhouse, and a bit of a mystery; in mythology Pluto was the god of the underworld. Many Scorpios are also drawn to “dark” things, and often wear the color black, or a shocking tone like red or hot pink. Like Pluto, Scorpio’s power often emanates from a hidden source, even when you don’t say a word. Mysterious Scorpio is the zodiac’s most misunderstood sign. You’re so powerful that people feel your presence, even before you’ve said a word! Sensitive Scorpio picks up vibes. You see every little detail, and you can read people like an open book. Once your friends get used to your high-intensity style, they know that you’re fiercely loyal. Anyone who betrays you had better watch out! Like a Scorpion, you’ll deliver a painful sting of revenge. Since your sign is naturally secretive, work on being more open with people. This will develop trust, and improve your relationships. Scorpio’s concentration powers are amazing, but be careful not to get obsessed. Curb any jealous or possessive feelings by pouring your energy into a creative project or passion.

Sagittarius
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22–DECEMBER 21)
Get ready to take 2019 by storm, Archer. This is poised to be one of your most dynamic years in more than a decade—and it starts from Day One! Your ruling planet, expansive Jupiter, is parked in Sagittarius from November 8, 2018, until December 2, 2019, which is kicking off a whole new 12-year chapter of your life. Forget about "business as usual": Welcome novelty and fresh starts, which just happen to be a few of your favorite things!
 
But Jupiter's enthusiasm will be tempered a bit by January's "risk-management team" of planets in Capricorn and your sensible second house. The Sun is here until January 20, helping you put those wild ideas into a practical (and profitable!) framework. On January 5, the first of this month's two groundbreaking eclipses will arrive. This one is a partial solar (new moon) eclipse in Capricorn, which could bring a dynamic work or financial opportunity.
Lending some extra gravitas, it's in close proximity to serious Saturn, the planet of structure and responsibility. While you could have a sobering realization that you need to spend, save and plan more frugally, this eclipse will also reveal unexpected ways to earn instead of burn. It's not how much cash you make but what you do with it. This is the first of 2019's three eclipses in Capricorn; the other two arrive in July and December. Events sparked now could build into major money moves over the next half-year—or send you down an entirely new career path.
 
On January 11, when the Sun and transformational Pluto unite in Capricorn, you can map out a brilliant strategy for making your hard-earned money work overtime for you. With deep-digging Pluto pinging the identity-focused Sun, this may require you to shed old perceptions of yourself. Let those limiting beliefs and scarcity thoughts go already, Sag!
 
A surge of creativity (and possible fame) could boost your buzz factor starting January 6, when innovator Uranus ends a five-month retrograde backspin in Aries and your fifth house of passion and self-expression. Don't snooze on the muse if she comes a'knocking! In March, unconventional Uranus will depart Aries after eight years here, not to return in this lifetime. With fiery and motivational Mars also in Aries from January 1 until February 14, you'll be further inspired to take an artistic risk or to put your talents on display.
 
With Mars and Uranus in your lusty fifth house, a love affair could heat up fast (and possibly combust just as quickly). For Archers of the childbearing set, an unexpected pregnancy could take you by surprise as Cupid AND the stork make a joint visit before Valentine's Day. (Not interested? Take extra precautions.) On March 6, Uranus will start an eight-year visit to Taurus and your healthy, analytical sixth house, putting an end to some of the wild-and-crazy times. While you might be relieved, your inner rock star has a couple more metaphorical hotel rooms to trash—so get your "carpe diem" kicks in while you can. Book a spontaneous weekend getaway, share your talents in a public forum, tell someone how you really feel about them. You never know what could come of it!
 
On January 13, your ruler, Jupiter, locks into its first of this year's three tense squares to hazy Neptune, an aspect that can stir up confusion and delusion. With adventurous Jupiter in your first house of self and boundary-challenged Neptune in your home and family zone, you could feel torn between pursuing your own independent dreams and being there for loved ones. If you're a parent, a child's emotional needs could feel all-consuming, leaving you feeling guilty or resentful. You may struggle to balance "me time" with the demands of home and family.
 
Jupiter and Neptune will form two more squares this year, on June 16 and September 21, but you'll feel their tension for most of the year. Both of these planets are generous but struggle with limitations, so you will grapple with setting the right parameters. You'll need to teach people to be more self-sufficient while making sure you have the bandwidth to show up for the times that matter.
 
Talking about it will help a lot, and you'll have a chance to do that on January 20, when the Sun enters Aquarius and your third house of communication and community for a month. It takes a village, Sagittarius, especially to live the huge and dynamic life that befits your bountiful sign. How can you create support systems or flexible arrangements that allow you to "have it all"?
 
You might have a watershed moment of honesty—or a burst of inspiration—on January 21, when the month's second eclipse lands in Leo and your provocative, adventurous ninth house. This one, a total lunar (full moon) eclipse, is quite the showstopper and could catapult you onto a new level of exposure and luck.
 
This is the grand finale of an eclipse series landing on the Leo/Aquarius axis that began in February 2017. Since then, these eclipses have been majorly shifting your approach to communication, travel, learning and cross-cultural relations. You've reimagined friendships and community as you've learned to cultivate deeper ties without feeling trapped. Discovering who "your people" are has been an eye-opening journey over the past couple years. This final eclipse could bring one of your ideas to a widespread, even global, audience, perhaps with the help of some of the kindred spirits you've collected since 2017.
 
That same day, fiery Mars in your expressive fifth house will lock into a heated square with rigid Saturn in your financial sector. Do you have the budget to go as big and bold as you want to? You may feel torn between speaking up for something you feel passionately about and toeing the party line. For some Sagittarians, the battle between head and heart will be fierce. One side of you wants to throw caution to the wind while a skeptical inner voice keeps censoring you. Your own temper or knee-jerk reactions could only worsen the situation. This is not the day to make any irreversible moves, especially in the heat of the moment.
 
On January 25, your enthusiasm returns, and you'll get back to the sunny side of life—which always magnetizes your desires so much more than fighting. That day, Mars moves into a harmonious trine with abundant Jupiter, energizing the most expressive and attention-grabbing zones of your chart. You're in the mood to swing out far and wide, debuting a new style, going public with one of your talents or speaking your truth without filters. With these courageous and outspoken planets in sync, it's a much better time to deliver your heartfelt confessions. Just keep it positive and make sure to uplift others. How can your openness pave the way for everyone to shine? Consider this before you lay all your cards on the table.
Sagittarius Personality:
Cheerful Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the largest planet in the solar system. Jupiter is the “happy” planet, full of energy and confidence. Sagittarians often reflect Jupiter’s larger-than-life persona. As the zodiac’s traveler, Sagittarius is the ultimate free spirit: optimistic, open-minded and ambitious. You’re happiest in wide-open spaces with plenty of adventure and excitement. You juggle a million projects, hobbies and friends. The more, the merrier! Sagittarius is forever pursuing a super-sized goal. Even when you fail, nothing can keep you down. You’ll chalk it up as a life lesson and inspire everyone with tales of your experience. As the sign of wisdom and truth, Sagittarius loves to “tell it like it is,” especially when it makes people laugh. However, your honesty doesn’t always come in the prettiest package. You’ve been known to bruise feelings with your bluntness. Cultivate patience, and be careful not to come off as a know-it-all. Although Sag loves the thrill of a new project or friendship, you don’t always finish what you start. Work on keeping your promises and commitments. 
capricorn
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 - JANUARY 19) 
Talk about making an entrance! The year begins with a full-frontal Capricorn cosmic lineup. Not only is the Sun making its usual jaunt through your sign until January 20, but the very first new moon of 2019, which arrives on January 5, is also a partial solar eclipse in Capricorn. Eclipses sweep in and reshuffle life as we know it, pushing us onto a more authentic path. If you haven't committed to any clear resolutions yet, don't worry! This powerful day will act as your official New Year, thrusting you into the spotlight whether you're ready or not.
 
At the very least, your personal passions could come into sudden and sharp focus, and the eclipse will spur you to take them seriously. For the first week of the month, the Sun is traveling in close proximity to your ruling planet, responsible Saturn, which will lend an air of gravitas to events triggered by the eclipse. On January 2, you may take a sobering look in the mirror—and well, if you don't love everything you see, that's okay. Instead of getting discouraged or feeling defeated (which, heads up, can happen at a heavy-handed Sun-Saturn conjunction), let it motivate you. Choose ONE part of your life that truly matters to you, Capricorn. Where would you like to be by the end of the year? Start there, then work backward to outline some actionable and realistic steps you could take.
Most importantly, what kind of support system do you need? Trying to do everything alone is a setup for failure, and with lucky Jupiter in your twelfth house of healing and surrender until December 2, 2019, the sooner you ditch your stubborn pride, the better. Only then can you receive the help and encouragement that will spur you to victory.
 
Here's some more perspective: This is only the first of this year's THREE eclipses in Capricorn; the other two are in July and December. This month is simply the start of an incredible journey to redefine yourself and take your dreams from idea to reality. There are layers to shed and new insights to gain—and you can't take shortcuts through the process. In fact, you'd be cheating yourself out of some powerful growth opportunities if you did. Set aside perfectionism and quit obsessing over what people think of you. That will only prevent you from taking risks that will pay off in the long run.
 
The January 11 meetup of the Sun and transformational Pluto in Capricorn will help you reframe your missteps as important lessons. You WILL make mistakes, possibly in public, as you step into your greatness. Can you forgive yourself and others and, instead of getting flustered, bring grace to your interactions? January's eclipse season will help you reach deep and find the much-needed compassion that will allow you to dust yourself off and try, try again.
 
Home and family matters are also at the forefront of January's cosmic agenda. On January 6, radical changemaker Uranus ends a five-month retrograde, barreling forward in Aries and your domestic fourth house. Intensifier Mars is also in Aries from January 1 to February 14, adding stress as it quickens the pace of events. You might suddenly change residences or have an unanticipated change in your family structure or living situation. A female relative or an unconventional woman could play into events over the next two months.
 
It could be hard to settle into a sense of rootedness anywhere—but don't worry, Capricorn. Uranus is wrapping an eight-year visit to Aries that will end on March 6, then it won't visit this part of your chart again in your lifetime. One Capricorn we know is in the midst of moving from the Pacific Northwest to Australia but will have to travel back and forth a few times between January and March. Another Capricorn friend, who's struggling to get pregnant, is looking at IVF and adoption as alternatives, which are both in line with Uranus' progressive and technology-driven values. With Uranus now direct (forward), don't be surprised if stalled efforts around home and family hit the fast track.
 
While things are still up in the air, now would be the time to ask yourself: Do you like where you live? Do you have enough freedom and autonomy in your family? Is a major change in order for your self-care or lifestyle? As a dutiful Cap, making sacrifices for loved ones is second nature. But if it's been done at the expense of your freedom, this rare alliance of assertive Mars and liberator Uranus will slam the brakes. You may even experience flashes of anger and frustration. But rather than get stuck in resentment, let these emotions spur you to start speaking your truth. It's time to get authentic with your closest people, Capricorn.
 
On January 13, another rare moment arrives as expansive Jupiter locks into the first of this year's three tense squares to hazy Neptune, an aspect that can stir up confusion and delusion. Brace yourself: Your normally spot-on BS detectors could fail you today. With Jupiter in your gullible twelfth house and dreamy Neptune in your communication zone, someone could sell you the Brooklyn Bridge and get you to happily pay with interest. Don't be seduced by a smooth talker's words or just "go with your gut." While it's great for you to let down your guard a smidge, don't just drop your defenses without conducting thorough due diligence.
 
There will be two more Jupiter-Neptune squares in June and September, but you'll navigate this convoluted energy for much of the year. The best use of it is to open up your heart chakra and your psychic receptors a little more. You could receive a flood of intuitive guidance and grow quite a lot, both spiritually and emotionally. Just be sure to protect yourself properly so you can filter out any negative energies or spot a shady opportunist before they wrangle their way into your field.
 
Luckily, a sensible cycle begins on January 20 as the Sun kicks off a monthlong visit to Aquarius and your grounded second house. It's a productive time during which you'll focus on practical matters like work, budgeting and committing to new habits you'd like to cultivate in 2019. You can regain your bearings a bit and start to make sense of the giant energy download you got from the Capricorn solar eclipse.
 
But that program could be interrupted temporarily on January 21, when the Leo full supermoon arrives in the form of a total lunar eclipse in your eighth house of intimacy and merging. This is the grand finale in an eclipse series that's been activating the Leo/Aquarius axis since February 2017, transforming your approach to work, money and investing—whether that was emotional, financial or in shared property. You've learned how to share your toys and play well with others, possibly through some curveball lessons that involved falling in love, breaking up or merging your assets. Now you have one last push to be more vulnerable and transparent or to decide who passes through the ironclad Capricorn gates and earns your trust for life!
 
A LOT of emotions could surge up today because intensifier Mars in your hypersensitive fourth house will lock into a heated square with rigid Saturn in Capricorn. As the eclipse pushes you to extremes, this Mars-Saturn square will only fuel the day's do-or-die mood. Has someone crossed a line? You may be tempted to unleash an angry and self-righteous tirade. But step back and take responsibility for your part first. Did people even know you HAD that boundary to begin with? We're not talking about an outright or obvious violation. But. for example, if you've "trained" people to run to you for every pseudo-emergency, you can't blame them when they actually do that. However, it's time to lovingly and firmly set limits—and stick to them.
 
You'll have a much easier time doing that on January 25, when Mars in your home and family zone forms a flowing trine to generous Jupiter in your compassionate twelfth house. People will be more generous with each other, and you'll be able to share what you've kept inside in a direct but kind way. Honesty isn't always the best policy, but it should be today. Just make sure people are in the right frame of mind to talk because with these effusive planets intertwined, a lot could come rushing out at once. Set aside enough time to really listen to each other without interruptions (no phones, please!), and you could reach a whole new level of closeness.
 
The Mars-Jupiter trine could also bring a gesture of support from a family member. It could be some emotional bolstering or financial help for an important purchase, such as a home, or something that makes your lifestyle more comfortable, like a computer or a car. Be open to receiving, Capricorn—the universe WANTS to give you this gift! Let your generosity be repaid now, even if it's a little uncomfortable.
Capricorn Personality:
Serious Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of tough lessons and wisdom. As a result, many Capricorns are “old souls” who play by the rules and follow tradition. Accustomed to regular butt-kickings from Saturn, you often see life as an uphill battle, with the ultimate reward arriving only through suffering and sacrifice. Ambitious Capricorn is symbolized by a mountain goat climbing up a rocky hill, taking one cautious step at a time. And that’s exactly how patient Caps like to do everything. You’ll skip the good stuff today if it means getting the reward tomorrow. That’s why your sign has more trophies and loyal friends than any other–you stay strong through the hard times. Hardworking Caps are devoted to their friends and families, and people count on you for support. You always keep your word. Remember to let yourself have fun, too! Life doesn’t always have to be a struggle. It’s okay to enjoy your victories, even if you didn’t work hard to win them. Lighten up and share your wacky, down-to-earth humor. When you get moody, let your family and closest friends be there for you–just as you always are for them.
If you’re feeling slighted at work lately, it’s time to stand up for yourself. You know your worth and, if your boss doesn’t, maybe it’s time to make a change. The second half of the month, you’ll find that communication with other people is amazing for you. You’ll feel really comfortable opening up to friends and family, and sharing what you really think and feel. Don’t hold back—you’ll form even stronger relationships with people because of it.

Aquarius
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20–FEBRUARY 18)

Ease your way into 2019, as gently as you can. The calendar's turn is always a little weird for you, because the Sun is in Capricorn and your sleepy twelfth house until the third week of January. Going straight from celebration to hibernation is what your system naturally wants to do. But this go-round, that might not be so easy. With two eclipses jolting you into action on January 5 and 21, there are important moves to make…and you don't want to snooze through those!

On January 5, your twelfth house of closure is activated by a partial solar (new moon) eclipse in Capricorn, which could shut one door firmly so you can open another. What part of your identity or your past no longer serves you, Aquarius? Let it go so you can make way for the new. With structured Saturn traveling close to the Sun for the first week of the year (making an exact meetup on January 2), you may boldly shed an outworn part of your identity or life. Your father or a significant male might factor into events at this eclipse. You may also establish a new relationship with a mentor figure or be trained by a helpful person who's a seasoned veteran of your industry. Artists and healers could gain unexpected recognition at the solar eclipse, or you might decide to commit yourself to mastering your craft in 2019.
 
On January 11, the mystical side of this eclipse could reveal itself, when the Sun makes its annual conjunction (meetup) with transformational Pluto in Capricorn. You may feel called to do some deep forgiveness work, especially if you've been clinging to resentment or projecting your past pain onto someone you care about. This Sun-Pluto meetup could bring a psychic moment, perhaps through a dream or a session with a healer. If you've ever wanted to try a past-life regression or work with a medium, you may get a serendipitous sign from a departed loved one now. Some profound puzzle pieces can come together in the first two weeks of the year, but you'll have to be receptive to intuitive flashes and "messages" from your subconscious. Journaling, meditation or sound healing could open the channels.
 
Amid all this right-brained activity, your logical left brain will also have a heyday in January. Your co-ruler Uranus will rocket out of a five-month retrograde on January 6, powering forward in Aries and your third house of communication. Your trailblazing ideas (and possibly your shockingly authentic commentary) will be back on the fast track again. With assertive Mars also in Aries from January 1 to February 14, your feistiness could reach epic levels. Be careful not to get TOO in people's faces about stuff, Aquarius, even if you're valiantly defending your creative freedom or beliefs.
 
Still, it's important to nail down your messaging now because on March 6, Uranus will depart Aries, not to return again in your lifetime. You've got two more months to put yourself out there in a bold and original way. Writing, teaching, social media and communication-based projects get a special boost. With Mars and Uranus in your third house of community, you might suddenly pick up and move to a new neighborhood or take on an unexpected role in a local project. Your inner social-justice warrior could be fired up now, and this is the perfect year to collaborate with like-minded people around a world-bettering cause.
 
But before you go splashing truth serum on the world or blasting out an opinion you can't un-Tweet, make sure your thinking is clear. On January 13, the first of this year's three challenging squares forms between outspoken Jupiter and hazy Neptune, which can lead to confusion and mixed messages. Jupiter is in your eleventh house of groups while Neptune is in your second house of money and security. This could bring anything from a confidence shake-up to disruptive drama in your social circle. Who are your real friends, and who's just hanging around because they want something from you?
 
You may start to notice that a certain friendship has become one-sided or codependent, especially with needy Neptune in the mix. Perhaps there's someone whose ego always needs a boost or who expects you to pick up the pieces (and the tab) when they make a mess out of their lives. Are you relying too heavily on others for validation or to boost your own status? With Jupiter in your technology house, you might need to take a social media break, especially if you've gotten overly concerned with counting "likes" at the expense of connection. Jupiter and Neptune will form two more exact squares on June 16 and September 21, but you'll feel their tension throughout the year.
 
You'll be ready to focus on numero uno again starting January 20, when the Sun swings into Aquarius for a month, kicking off your birthday season. Hibernation: interrupted! Those sluggish vibes that started the year will soon be a thing of the past. Unclear about your direction for 2019? The fog lifts, and you'll radar in on what YOU want to accomplish this year. Any adventures topping your bucket list? Enlist a couple of trustworthy wingpeople and make those into a reality.
 
Your closest ties come under major scrutiny on January 21, when a Leo full supermoon and total lunar eclipse blaze into your seventh house of committed partnerships. From romance to finance to friendship, this eclipse will shake up the status quo. A budding connection could move swiftly into official status—or end abruptly. Or you could have an epiphany about what you're willing to accept from a relationship or how to make your bottom line your top priority. If finding love is on your 2019 resolution list, this eclipse will bring a no-BS realization about how you might be blocking that…or what your savviest next steps should be.
 
This is the grand finale in a two-year series of eclipses that's lit up the Leo-Aquarius axis since February 2017, transforming your personal identity as well as your approach to commitment. You've gotten so much clearer about who you are and what you stand for, since every six months an eclipse would nearly force you to assert yourself or step into the spotlight. Your interpersonal dynamics have naturally shifted, and as a result there could have been a reshuffling on Team Aquarius. You won't experience eclipses here again until 2026, so use this powerful portal to make sure your relationships are on solid ground.
 
Once again, you may have to put on some filters before you clear the air, though. Also on January 21, intense Mars in your communication house locks into an embattled square with rigid Saturn in your twelfth house of closure. Even if you need to set a firm boundary or let someone know that you're upset, watch your tone: This cosmic clash can either make you overly aggressive or the host of an epic pity party. Instead of hurling accusations or playing the blame game, try to begin any statement with "I feel" rather than "You."
 
Or just wait a couple days until January 25, when Mars will form a harmonizing trine with authentic Jupiter, helping you serve up the #realtalk with love and generosity. The blissful union of these courageous planets will activate your interpersonal sectors, helping you step into other people's shoes and listen with much more acceptance. It's an amazing day to branch out and network, sparking up new dialogues and friendships.
 
Redirect your attention if you're angry. Who knows? That person or issue that seemed SO infuriating a few days ago may now become comedic fodder. Your tale of woe could be a story so outrageous it sends you and a rapt audience into side-splitting hysterics when you reenact it. Laughter is truly the best medicine, and you might enjoy a hearty dose of it as the month ends.

Aquarius Personality:

Avant-garde Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, the only planet in the solar system that spins on its side! Just like your celestial overlord, you’ve been known to do things your own way, moving on a path different from everyone else’s. Some call you eccentric, others appreciate your cutting-edge originality and authentic style. One of the many ways that Aquarius is a paradox? You’re highly individualistic, but also an amazing team player. Aquarius rules the zodiac’s eleventh house of teamwork, technology and friendship. You might look like the fresh-faced guy or girl next door on the outside, but inside you march to your own beat. Many Aquarians are also naturally popular, as your vibrantly social sign loves to be among your people, telling jokes and introducing thought-provoking conversation topics. People truly do make your world go round, and you can become insta-BFFs with the most random strangers. As the sign of the future, you can be a bit of an alien—a little “out there” in your approach. Not that you care about offending anyone! Aquarius rules casual connections, and you can disengage as quickly as you connect. In fact, your platonic pals may get better treatment than your romantic partners. While you can be a bit unsentimental on a one-on-one level, you can be moved to tears by the plight of animals, the environment or other social justice issues. Yes, you’re a bohemian at heart in some ways, but you also get the job done. As a tenacious fixed sign, you can be quite hardworking when you devote yourself to a goal. A competitive (and lesser-known) Type A streak can emerge when you really want something. Nothing turns you on like progress, especially in the name of your grander ideals!

 

pisces
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19–MARCH 20)
Look around, Pisces: Who are the people that share your orbit as 2019 begins? This month—and throughout the year—you could see a bit of reshuffling in your circle, both by choice and by chance. The company you keep is not only a reflection on you, but it also informs your view of the world and how far you can go. After all, it takes a village to do just about anything!
 
January is one of the year's most potent months because there are TWO scene-shifting eclipses, which will turn "business as usual" on its head. Eclipses sweep in four to six times a year, shaking up stagnant parts of our lives and forcing us to make important, if uncomfortable, changes. Although they're ultimately helpful, eclipses can wreak a bit of havoc in their wake if you've been ignoring the need to take action.
The first eclipse arrives on January 5, a partial solar (new moon) eclipse in Capricorn and your eleventh house of groups, teams and technology. This is set against the backdrop of the Sun's annual visit to Capricorn until January 20, with structured Saturn traveling close by for the first week of January. The message? It's time to get serious about your alliances, Pisces. Some friends or colleagues need clear boundaries, especially if they distract you from your big-picture mission with dramas and pseudo-emergencies.
 
You may be invited to formally join a group or mastermind—and with this eclipse fueling the action, you'll want to say yes! It might be a bit of a stretch to cover the dues and fees, but between now and the corresponding Capricorn lunar eclipse in July, your world could get much bigger by associating with influential people. You'll feel the eclipse reverberating once again on January 11, when the Sun makes its annual meetup with transformational Pluto in Capricorn, which could usher some major movers and shakers into your world. Since the eleventh house rules all things tech, you might get involved in an exciting collaboration, notably one that raises your digital or social media profile. Is it time to debut an upgraded website or drop a viral video? The first couple weeks of January take your joint productions far.
 
You may even have an unexpected opportunity to monetize your team efforts, Pisces. On January 6, innovative Uranus ends a five-month retrograde, powering forward in Aries and your second house of work and money. If things have been slow or dull on the financial front, news could arrive out of the blue. Strike while the iron is hot: Indie-spirited Uranus will be here until March 6, then it won't return to Aries again until the next century. That means you've got two more months to swing out of your comfort zone and do something unconventional, like working remotely or spending time on an avant-garde project that can better the world.
 
Fueling your fiscal fires is activator Mars, which is also in Aries and your financial zone from January 1 to February 14. While you might feel work pressure or the stress of an unplanned expense, let this motivate you to make some bold money moves. Instead of getting freaked out, be assertive and proactive.
 
Just hold off on doing anything too radical around January 13, when the first of this year's three rare Jupiter-Neptune squares stirs up confusion and delusion. Jupiter in your career house is bringing professional growth and new responsibilities. But being "the boss" can also be a drag for your nomadic Pisces soul. With your co-ruler, escape artist Neptune, in YOUR sign—and throwing a right hook at Jupiter—you might feel caged in by your duties. While more freedom and flexibility could be in order, you don't want to sabotage all your hard work by rebelling. Jupiter and Neptune will make two more exact squares on June 16 and September 21, but you'll feel this tension for much of the year. Your mission: to strike a balance between structure and spontaneity.
 
On January 20, hibernation time begins as the Sun slips into Aquarius and your twelfth house of rest and closure for a month. It's your annual time to lay low and process the year's events before your birthday (and Pisces) season begins in four weeks. Meditation, creative pursuits and (if you can swing it) a vacation near water can be soul-restoring during Aquarius time.
 
But first, brace yourself: On January 21, a boldfaced total lunar (full moon) eclipse—also a potent supermoon—arrives in Leo and your sixth house of work and wellness. You could have an aha moment of what you're meant to do on this planet and what it will take to pull it off. With this eclipse activating your zone of helpful people, there could be a dramatic reshuffling on Team Pisces near this date. (Buh-bye, slackers!)
 
This is the grand finale in a two-year series of eclipses that have reverberated across the Leo-Aquarius axis since February 2017, impacting your health, daily routines, spirituality and desire to make a difference. Your wellbeing may have gone through some radical shifts over the past couple years, or perhaps you've revamped your lifestyle to make room for more self-care and service-oriented pursuits.
 
It's been a time of both soul-searching and building new skills, and maybe even exploring your "shadow" side. But where was it all leading? This last eclipse may finally reveal the greater purpose behind your tumbles down these rabbit holes. Your health could get back on solid footing, especially if you heed the eclipse's orders to reduce stress and simplify.
 
Also on January 21, intense Mars will lock into a heated square with rigid Saturn, a major energy clash that will need to be carefully navigated. With strident Mars in your second house of money and self-worth and Saturn in your groups sector, you may need to assert yourself with a friend, and definitely if you've been picking up the slack (or the check) a little too often. Pitching an idea to colleagues? You'll want to do your homework thoroughly, but you could still face resistance and tough questions about budget or practical plans. Do you have a fully formed idea of how you'll execute a project from A to Z? If not, go hammer out the particulars before you share anything.
 
You might just want to wait until January 25, when much more favorable conditions prevail, particularly for work and money discussions. That day, Mars will form a harmonious trine with lucky Jupiter in your career zone. The stars are aligned for you to take a risk and be courageously candid about your big ideas. And conditions will be favorable for you to take a more visionary approach, speaking in broad strokes rather than micro details. This rare Mars-Jupiter trine bring an exciting moneymaking or leadership opportunity. With these two fast-moving planets synced up just briefly, you'll need to act decisively. Conduct some due diligence (fast!) and make sure this is legit. Is it aligned with your big-picture goals? If so, take a chance on your dreams, Pisces—they're worth it.

Pisces Personality:  

Symbolized by two fish swimming in opposite directions. A part of you is always trying to “swim away” or escape reality. The other part is so intuitive that you get swept up in everything going on. Your imagination is the perfect hideout when you want to escape, since Pisces is so creative. You love dancing (Pisces rules the feet), movies, poetry, and music. Your moods are mysterious and your dreams are intense. Every Pisces should have a journal by your bed, since some your best ideas will come in your sleep. Although you can feel helpless, you’re much stronger than you think. The best way for Pisces to experience your own strength is to help people in need. You have great compassion and incredible healing powers. Because it’s easy for people to make you feel guilty, Pisces should watch out for friends who use you, or make you doubt yourself. Surround yourself with good-hearted friends who have their acts together. Many people born under your sign have a “tortured soul” quality. Finding a tranquil spiritual outlet, or spending time alone, can help you get re-centered in your own power.
