Buckle up, folks. On January 5, 2019, there’s a partial solar eclipse in Capricorn. Solar eclipses are the equivalent of a double new moons, so they bring double the new opportunities, new doors opening, new people and situations. But this one is strange. Look at that chart. The last time we had a solar eclipse at 15 degrees Capricorn was in January 2000. Look back: what was going on in your life then?
Down there in the bottom right-hand corner of the chart – see that cluster? All those planets and points are in Capricorn. The sun and moon there in the middle at 15 degrees Capricorn, with Mercury and Saturn to the left, Pluto on the right. Capricorn is an earth sign governed by Saturn, which represents government, structure, authority. Mercury is about communication, Pluto represents profound transformation. This eclipse looks like a heavy-handed reality check.
Aries: This eclipse falls in your 10th house – career, profession, your public face. You may be saddled with more responsibility. However, you’ll be compensated handsomely for it – raise? bonus? coveted perk? – and will rise to the occasion with your usual energetic approach to everything. Jupiter is in brother fire sign Sagittarius on this eclipse day,so the planet of luck and expansion has your back.
Taurus: You may have an opportunity to travel overseas or to work with individuals from other countries. It’s also possible the work involves some complex visionary project that requires a contract or some other legal document. Another possibility is that you’re accepted into graduate or law school. If you have a sun in Taurus at 10 to 25 degrees, then the eclipse is forming a powerful and beneficial angle to your sun.
Gemini: The eclipse occurs in your 8th house, the weirdest house in the zodiac. It represents the most mundane things – taxes, insurances, mortgages, royalties, inheritances, other people’s resources – as well as death, rebirth, spirit contact, everything paranormal. New opportunities may come to you in any of these areas. You get your mortgage, you see your dead father. You get the idea here.
Cancer: This eclipse occurs in your 7th house of partnerships, opposite your sun sign.

Sagittarius: Get ready, Sadge! This eclipse and all those planets in Capricorn fall in your 2nd house of finances, $, personal values. This excess of Capricorn planets can affect you in one of several ways. You may feel panicked about money – or more determined to succeed at whatever you’re doing.You may be especially didactic about what you value and insist on doing things in a particular way. With Jupiter still in your sign, be sure to buy a lottery ticket. Or several!
