Capricorn – December 22 – January 19
Saturn rules your sign and it’s one of the reasons you’re the hardest worker in the zodiac. In late December 2017, it entered Capricorn and will continue to transit it until March 22, 2020. It functions well here, so you’re comfortable with its energy. Saturn governs discipline, responsibility, restrictions, and the structures in our lives. This year, it will be retrograde from April 29 to September 18, and during this period, you may be more serious than usual and will scrutinize the structures you’ve built in relationships, your career, finances, in all areas of your life.
Welcome to 2019! The year begins with Mars transiting Aries and the home/family area of your chart – i.e., your place is the hub of post-holiday activity! It entered Aries on December 31 and will be there until February 14. You may be finishing up renovation projects on your home, getting your kids ready to return to school, and preparing your own agenda for the next few months.
Mercury enters your sign on January 4 and between then and January 24, your intellect is keenly focused on your goals and ambitions. You’re eager to embrace everything 2019 has to offer and are ready to move forward. Mercury moves into Aquarius and your financial area on January 24 and now your conscious awareness shifts to earning money. In fact, one of your goals for this year may be to increase your income significantly. Until February 10, you’re a wheeler dealer and stubborn in your strategies.
On the 5th, there’s a solar eclipse in your sign and this one should be positive for you. New opportunities flow into your life that are personally satisfying. Thanks to a conjunction with Pluto and a friendly beam from Neptune to the eclipse degree, the opportunities may involve the arts or your spirituality and put you in a more powerful position.
This eclipse is followed two weeks later by a lunar eclipse in Leo. Something may surface that makes you feel off or annoyed. It could involve your creativity or resources you share with others – a partner, child, parent, roommate. If possible, avoid conflict and drama. Keep your opinion to yourself and move forward.
Once Uranus turns direct in Aries on January 6, it fuels Mars, also in Aries, with plenty of energy. Unusual people once again enter your life.
Venus transits Sagittarius from January 7 to February 3 and makes it easier for you to see the bigger picture in romance, your creative endeavors, even in your finances. If a romance starts during this transit, it may be kept under wraps until Venus enters your sign next month.
