🍾🎉 Happy New Year! 🍾🎉
January starts off with bringing the unconscious, conscious, making the first month of the year one of both closing out old chapters and venturing onto new ones. Typically, that is how a New Year starts, but this one is more powerful, especially with having back-to-back Supermoons all within their respective signs – this is quite rare and means something significant is in the works. So, you can count on the cosmos making January a month that starts the build-up which bring about some major shifts.
January 5th is the most powerful day of the month as we are graced with a Total Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Capricorn which is in conjunction with Saturn (planet of authority and responsibility), Pluto (planet of power) and Mercury (planet of communication and career) as it shifts into Capricorn’s domain that same day. This is a time of cleansing old karmic patterns, closing out old chapters, and also planting new seeds that are focused on long-term goals. For many, this is a great New Moon to preform money, career, or rituals that are fixated on stability and security. This cosmic event is focused on building momentum for the future.
When Mercury is in Capricorn, its focus is on clear communication that cuts to the facts. There is no time for mindless games, gossip, or flying by the seat of your pants. Capricorn grounds Mercury and gives our voices more authority. This is an investigative time where questions are asked but not before we have observed the facts for ourselves, so to ensure the truth is told. Mercury in Capricorn loves goals and making plans to achieve what we set our minds to. Career wise, this is a wonderful time to ask for that promotion, pick up some side work, or to work out details when it comes to contracts or agreements.
The very next day on January 6th, Uranus turns direct in the last degree of Aries, where it has been in retrograde in Taurus since August of 2018. While it is in the last degree of Aries, making a slow build up towards its final shift into Taurus energy – wreaking havoc and allowing the Ram to bulldoze over those things which inhibit our sense of security and stability within the realm of finances and relationships. When Uranus goes direct, its like a major wake-up call, making us see the things that bind us, where we had been avoiding or ignoring them before. This is a time of releasing restraints and rebelling against what doesn’t serve us.
The first week into January has a lot of different cosmic shifts, and it doesn’t just end with Uranus waking up, but also Venus catching the wave as it makes Sagittarius its new home on the 7th. When Venus enters Sagittarius, we have to be very careful with getting carried away with the sparks or making commitments with something that is only temporary. This is where our heart is worn at our sleeve and promises are made which may have been done on good intent, but too many surrounding factors work against them, making them broken promises in the end. So, this is a great time to set out on an adventure such as a short trip outside your zip code or trying something new that doesn’t require a lot of investment on your part. New friendships are favored, but love relationships can go either way, as they could just remain a short fling, or build onto something more as long as some grounding and stability is put into play – basically, if you truly like the person you’re romantically interested in, then setting boundaries and taking it slow is the sure fire way to ensure it will last.
Our next major sign change is on the 20th when the Sun enters broad-minded Aquarius. This is a time of expanding on our ideas, thinking outside the box – or rather getting rid of the box entirely, and making new friendships with others who share the same ideas as well as challenge our ways of thinking.
That same night and onto the next day we have an extremely powerful and our first Super Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo. Supermoons are bigger and brighter than a regular Full Moon, making them appear closer to the Earth. This is the first of three Supermoons that we will experience, all within their respective signs (polar opposite) within the first three months of the year (January, February and March), which is a very rare occurrence, and being a Total Lunar Eclipse, it adds more energy to the build-up of a major shift that is in store for us all. With the sun in Aquarius and the Moon in Leo, this moon puts a major highlight on things which have kept our inner-child and creative force under lock, allowing us to heal and release a repressive and restrictive force within us. This is where we find our voice and roar it out like a Lion.

It appears that January is going to bring you into a whirlwind of different feelings and situations. Your best advice is to ground, ground, ground, and then ground some more. Also, try not to share too much information with others, or seek advice from too many people, as this may end up confusing you even more. There are just too many hands in the pot, to where you can’t see or even smell what kind of soup is cooking, metaphorically speaking. This means that you have to set some good boundaries and stick to yourself on this one. Figure it out, Aries, allow that independent and direct nature of yours to shine – take back your power. You’re not helpless, and you’d even hate to feel that way, but this time around you are definitely stumped and feel that an outsider or your close friends/family can help, and that is making you feelhelpless.
You are one of the most intuitive signs of the Zodiac, and that caters to your ‘charging’ nature, like a Ram running full speed, horns first, at its target. You are able to figure things out quickly, even if you don’t, you still take a chance and run with it.
The first New Moon of 2019 is in Capricorn, and to top it off, there is also a Total Solar Eclipse in Capricorn and all in conjunction with both Saturn and Pluto, Mercury transits into Capricorn that same day, and, the very next day Uranus goes direct in your sign. This intense energy may be what is bogging you down, forcing you to think before you act, which has caused you to seek out advice or to share your frustrations. Rather than letting this energy take control of you, you need to use it to your advantage. This is a time of looking deep within and facing your enemy head-on – which of course, is yourself.
You know what to do, Aries. Don’t question yourself.

Remember, Taurus, as hard as things might be this month, you are surrounded by support and can accomplish all that you need to, as long as you carry the right mindset. You have someone in your corner, and they want noting more than to help you reach whatever goal you are setting to accomplish. With the surrounding cards, it does seem that you might feel a bit overwhelmed, and unable to either recognize this support, or perhaps you are just unwilling to accept it because you are so used to getting things done on your own, and being that pillar of support for others – meaning it could be a pride thing holding you back. While you are a rather modest sign, you do hold a lot of satisfaction over being self-sufficient.
Uranus turns direct on the 6th, meaning that things are going to shift, or more like reawaken within your World, especially concerning your relationships and your finances. While it doesn’t switch back into Taurus until March, you are still being affected by the Planet of Chaos as its within its last degree of Aries. Consider January the start of a build-up of events and energy that is going to be a bit of bumpy ride, but you will soon be thankful for the turbulence as things start to take shape by the Spring.
January is going to be a month of deep realizations and refocusing. You feel confident and in control of things, even amidst the things that seem to be somewhat out of control – there is literally nothing you cannot accomplish this month.

January is going to be a very powerful month for you, Gemini, and it will not only feel much like a karmic exchange, in receiving a lot of what you were due from 2018, but it will also be a month of setting the tone for much of 2019. While it does feel mostly positive, there is a lot of work to do, and so don’t be thinking that you finally get off easy. While much of last year was a quite chaotic, holding a lot of disappointments as well as major inner-house cleaning, but it also set you up for this shift in January.
This is a month of taking charge, delicately. You can’t go rushing in and simply fly by the seat of your pants as you typically do (of course it’s never intentional), you need to plan ahead and then execute with grace. Don’t look at what is before you with fear, or that you need to tackle it with aggression and allow your anxiety or stress to project into a negative attitude – instead – use your mind to observe and formulate a plan which helps you get ahead with ease.
The Capricorn New Moon and Total Solar Eclipse in the beginning of January will set the scene for that karmic exchange, and near the end of month when the Sun enter Aquarius and the Total Lunar Eclipse/Super Full Moon will reveal your challenge.

You’re probably still getting some aftershocks from the December Full Moon, and also, the Capricorn energy that takes over the beginning of January is more than likely hitting you pretty hard as well. You are questioning a lot of your life, and what lies within your heart, and with that are going to come some major shifts. You are changing, Cancer, and January is going to be a major transformational month for you which will set the tone for much of 2019.
You may experience a change of heart come the Total Solar Eclipse and new Moon in Capricorn on the 5th, which is in conjunction with Mercury, Saturn and Pluto. The cosmos got you deep inside your heart, questioning your heart, and considering a different pathway, one which is more in tune with what you truly want and need, rather than just what you desire. This is more of a soul-feeling, one that is aligned with your higher-self and that yearns for more meaning in your life. This isn’t going to be an easy period for you either, which means you may end up having to close some doors you are rather attached to, and to step outside of your comfort zone.
Since you rule over the Moon, you are more receptive to its powerful transits, and so that means the first part of 2019 is going to put you through the ringer and push you to truly listen to your heart for a change, and to reach out for what it calls you to.

Talk about spiritual downloads… January is quite an intuitive month for you as the cosmos are showing favor in Leo with the Total Lunar Eclipse and New Moon on the 20th/21st. This is a time of deep spiritual growth which not only enables you to understand yourself better, but also your relationships with others as well.
Many of the other Zodiac Signs are also going through a transformational time, but with you, this is all happening within. You feel more connected to yourself and others, as well with the work that you do. You may also be searching for new outlets to unleash your imaginative side that also correlate with your spirituality. This is a great month to practice meditation, go on a spiritual retreat, or something else that correlates with your spiritual tastes such as divination, etc. Basically, your intuitive powers on high this month, and so it would benefit you greatly to put them to use.
January brings the unconscious, conscious. Allowing you to see beyond what you did before, for the deeper meaning to things that didn’t make sense in the past. This is of course both good and bad, as you start to make these revelations, changes occur from within yourself that reflect onto your outer World. These changes can bring you closer to others, and they can also sever relationships or certain pathways you were once dedicated to because of the insights proving they are no longer what you need, or what you didn’t need all along.

It seems January is going to a rather cut and dry month for you, Virgo. While the magic the cosmos are radiating over many of the Zodiac, it seems when it comes to you, it is mostly work and deep realizations. This is also a month of gazing at the higher prize – the ultimate goal and making a fool-proof plan to achieve it.
You might be making that New Years Resolution or working to accomplish something which may take up most of 2019. Whatever it may be, it will be worth all of the effort you plan to put into it.
On the 5th, when the Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Capricorn which is in conjunction with Saturn and Neptune make their display of Earth dominated energy, you will be sparked with the determination and drive to get to work. This is where the ideas and insights you’ve needed will pile through, or, perhaps it is the initial spark that implants this idea in your head to begin with.
While you are the most detail-oriented sign of the Zodiac, there is a chance you might skim past a few things, and so it is imperative that you hold true to these Virgoan characteristics and consider the finest detail in your planning. You can easily accomplish whatever you set your mind to, Virgo, and that is because you always formulate the best plan of action.

While January displays some rather opposing energy during the Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Capricorn, you take it like a champ and transmute it to your advantage. That is of course, as long as you direct your focus accordingly.
You might be pulled in a few different directions, however, you are in control, Libra, and so following the crowd or agreeing to something for the sakes of holding peace or keeping up a good reputation won’t serve you this time around. Instead, it could limit you and cause a great deal of stress. You need to be honest – when you don’t want to do something, or don’t have the time, then express that and you will be more than surprised about the understanding you are met with.
You are also feeling comfortable within your own skin and assured with your decisions – a decisive Libra is a formable force indeed! This makes it easy for you to manifest results and make progress on whatever goal you work on. Just consider the advice in the previous paragraph, otherwise you could end up feeling scattered and less than confident in your choices.
January asks that you realize what you desire.

Remember, Scorpio, as alone as you might feel to be, you have a group of supportive people who love and adore you, and who are willing to uplift your spirits in your time of need – even if you don’t want to admit you are in need to begin with. You pride yourself with being self-sufficient and aren’t typically someone who shares their insecurities with others, to you, it’s a sign of weakness and something you prefer to hide – while you are the one who easily pinpoints the weaknesses in others. Well this time around you need to accept that you are only human and are in need of the warmth that only another human being can bring.
You may be invited out when you least feel like it, and while you would prefer to stay in and wallow in your own woes, you need to dress up and show up instead. Muster up that energy and pick yourself up off the ground, as this event may be just what brings you back to life.
January inspires you, but it also pushes you. Pluto, your ruling planet, is put on display around the 5th when the powerful Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Capricorn are in conjunction with the planet of power, intellectual Mercury and responsible Saturn. This makes you take a long hard look at yourself, deeply, and forces you to turn your pain into gold like the alchemist you so naturally are. The opposing Lunar Eclipse and Super Full Moon in Leo might shake you up a bit, but, that is the revealing process you need – to be chipped away of your armor so your heart can shine.

With Jupiter, your ruling planet, in your domain this year, it seems that 2019 is going to be quite a transformational time for you as it puts a major expansive focus on your sign. While 2018 had its magic, it also had some turbulent times which had poked and prodded you. It seems that the start of the year is going to have you looking back at some closed doors and experiences, but, you might still feel a bit wounded and even resentful with how certain things had turned out.
The Total Solar Eclipse and New Moon in Capricorn which is in conjunction with Mercury, Saturn and Pluto is going to have you deep in your thoughts, mainly about who should take responsibility for certain negative outcomes and wounds occurred. While you are focused on the bad times, you need to use your gift of optimism that Sagittarius is most famous for in order to make sense of it all, and to propel forward.
Your sign is governing over Mercury (until the 5th) and soon to join Venus a few days after Mercury switches into Capricorn, and so with Jupiter in your domain, it accentuates those transits and affects you deeply. With that said, you also need to watch your mouth – and avoid saying anything which could work against you. That’s especially emphasized for when you are in those dark moods and pushing responsibility onto others for things which hurt you stress you. You are typically one to get over something quickly, and to bounce back with forgiveness, but it seems that January has a different agenda when it comes to feeling the realness of things.

First of all, Happy Birthday Capricorn! 🎂🎁🎈🎉
January puts you under a microscope and shines the spotlight on your Sign with the New Moon and Solar Eclipse in your domain and in conjunction with Mercury, Saturn and Pluto. This basically empowers your mind and hyper focuses your energy towards higher goals that not only benefit your career or sense of stability, but also your heart and soul. Contrary to popular belief, Capricorns are actually very intuitive, receptive, and heart-centered signs – why do you think they represent success? They listen to their inner-core and move with purpose.
You will be making many shifts this month, and I say shift rather than change because you are moving to a greater plane than you have been before. This may not be easy at first, and of course you aren’t one to dismiss an opportunity or ignore a higher calling because of a difficult path, however, you might be going through internal changes that take you out of your comfort zone and make you chasing after dreams you had once thought to be a little too far out there. Basically, these shifts bring about a completely different version of yourself – January caters to your evolution and growth.
While you are a sign that always goes with a plan, you may have to go with the flow for much of January. Listen to that inner call and allow it to pull you towards something magical.

On the 20th, The Sun governs your sign, so with that said, Happy Birthday Aquarius! 🎂🎁🎈🎉
Things could be better, Aquarius. It seems that gossip and mind games might be taking center stage this month for you, and with that, a lot of needless stress. Of course, a lot of this can be avoided, but that is only if you keep your mind out the gutter and don’t pass on information you aren’t sure is valid or not. Basically, keep to the high road.
A close friend may come to you this month with problems they need help in solving – this is another area of caution, as you need to ensure they didn’t put themselves in this mess to begin with, and only end up including you in the ordeal. You don’t need to make their problems, your problems. Likewise, this may be you – and if it is then you need to fess up to your crime, take responsibility and turn things around on your own – of course you have support if you need it, but you don’t want to make things any worse by putting too many hands in the pot.
The Total Lunar Eclipse and Super Full Moon on the 20th/21st may be around the time this all escalates, so be sure to stay on the downlow or things could intensify around the time the Moon shines its light on these things.

Things are a bit violate in your World, Pisces, and it seems January could be kinder to you. However, the things that are occurring this month could not be avoided, as it may have been your ignorance of it from the past which has led you to this point. You had been disregarding something which is now escalating and causing a lot of friction in your World, even more so some inner-friction when it comes to blaming yourself and also blaming the world.
While you have answers to some of your dilemmas this month, you don’t feel like putting them to use. You know how to make things better, but you either lack the energy or the inspiration all together to do it. This might be due to feeling depressed about certain aspects of your life, or because you are just not motivated enough to help yourself right now. Even with receiving outside help, and bouts of tough love, you still just don’t have the energy or drive.
Procrastination is not your friend this month, Pisces, use the blast of Capricorn energy given to you around the beginning of the month from the cosmos to formulate a plan of action, and then improve your state of mind and your situation. Don’t push these issues onto he backburner like you have, otherwise you will continue to add fuel to the fire that is beginning to start.
