Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st): January may start off with challenges, especially in the workplace, and even though your optimism may be running high, you may find there are still irritants. One of the best ways to work through it though, is through clear and direct communication. As the month moves forward, you may find more of the same continues through work, but that good things are unfolding outside of that arena, specifically as it has to do with investments, travel, and love, baby, love. Your emotions may be irritated, but that is because you have more energy at your disposal than normal, so if you have a creative outlet to vent through, you may discover you can easily distance yourself from drama and focus on resolutions and progress.
Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st): If you take the right opportunities that come your way through the career, you may find you maneuver into a good spot in the near future. However, your emotions may be tense at the moment, as well as the love life, and the money flowing to you from day to day business may be a little thin, so it would be wise to play things conservatively overall, but also to carpe diem. As the month progresses, you may find that things not only emotionally ease up, but also that the home life rolls along nice and smooth, and that the career is taking more and more of your time because of the good things unfolding, even though they may require you to step up a bit.
Gemini (Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice): Your emotions may be a little out of sorts when the month starts, and you may find that money is a little off too, so it would be wise to be cautious with both of those for the whole month. Communication may also be tense, but this will fade by the middle of the month. When the Sun moves into Aquarius on the 20th, you may find that work is taking more of your time and energy, but otherwise things are rolling along quietly. There are hidden opportunities present in the workplace, but if you don’t take them you won’t be missing anything, rather you just missed the bonus round. During the whole month you may also find you have more than enough energy to accomplish your goals. This will carry you through until mid-February at least.
Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st): Tension may be the main theme for the first half of January, as your career may be the main source of it. Your intuition is on point though, and you may find the love life is nice and spicy. Money that comes to you through work may be good as well, and may be a major reason why you deal with the headaches. As the month progresses, you may find that your temper gets shorter, and that you may be accident prone if you hurry through things, so it would be wise to play things slow and low. Your emotions may be extra strong as the month goes on, and while it’s good for your intuition, it could also be too much of a good thing. Through the whole month the tension in the career will continue, but it will fade around the second week of February.
Leo (Approx. July 21st to approx. August 21st): Money through business and your intimate relationships may be full of challenges right now, but with communication, optimism, and ability to open your mind to what needs to be done, you can navigate this relatively brief period. As January moves forward, you may feel like a tension is building in the air, and it is, but this happens every year and is still a few weeks off, so it would be wise to prepare for it. You may also find you have a second wind at your disposal, making it a good time to begin the new projects you have been contemplating, especially if they are exercise related. Money through investments and long distance contacts may also be brought to your door.
Virgo (Approx. August 21st to Autumnal Equinox): Communication and taking risks might not be wise to do at the beginning of the month, but if you focus on what’s happening in your career, you may find a lot of ground can be covered and foundations laid for the upcoming year. In a lot of ways it’s ‘hit the ground running’ time once January begins. As the month moves forward, you may find your intuition sharpens, and that the home life is going very well. The professional life is still an excellent arena for foundation building, but it would be wise to play things safe when it comes to your investments and honesty.
Libra (Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st): The career may have some headaches right now, but they’re not new ones, nor are they ones that you have much control over, so it would be wise to accept doing the best you can with it as the way to proceed for the start of the month. However, there may also be plenty of opportunities for expansion brought to your door through foreign contacts, so it would be wise to seize those if you desire. The love life may also be passionate to begin 2019. As January progresses, you may find that the career gets a little tenser, your temper may get shorter, and emotionally there may be some stressors, but everything but the workplace tension will be cleared up within a week or two of the Sun entering Aquarius on January 20th, so this is short lived.
Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st): January 2019 may have a fantastic start to it, so get ready! Things in the career, day to day business, and love life may all be rolling along nice and smoothly right now, and the only real thing to focus on would be on making the minor adjustments required for your investments and long distance contacts. Everything else might just be a nice start to the year. As the Sun enters into Aquarius though, you may find that your intuition is sharpened and that the career is still the main focus. While you may sense something on the horizon, it is still a few weeks away and happens every year, so it would be wise to not blow things out of proportion.
Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice): Communication, lucky breaks, good fortune, optimism, and all things related may be the way January 2019 begins. The emotional irritations that have been there for a while are still there, but they aren’t any worse, and your intuition saying things are going to get better is right on point. You may find it wise to make minor adjustments to your spending and in your love life, but otherwise the year begins nice and smoothly. As January progresses, you may discover more good things flow your way having to do with money, long distance contacts, and possibly even through your spirituality, so it would be wise to seize them when they arrive.
Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st): Happy birthday Cappys! This is your month to treat yourself and catch your breath, because things are about to get tenser over the next two years with Saturn and Pluto blending in your sign and almost forcing you to change. For January though, you may find that the career is the main focus, and that your business is flowing along nice and smoothly, as well as your love life. It would be wise to play things safe though to avoid accidents, and that will be true for the whole of the month. As January progresses, you may find your emotions are tenser overall, but a lot of that may have to do with the amount you’re working to seize the present opportunities, so it would be wise to indulge in the gentler and more intimate sides of life to remember there is life outside of work.
Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st): Emotionally you may be on edge for the first part of January, and because of this, money may be tighter than normal, so it would be wise to play things cautious. One of the things you can do to further your goals is to make moves having to do with investments and working with the principles of prosperity through your connections. As the month moves forward though, you may find things ease up quite a bit, even to the degree that you already start to see a return on what you put into motion at the beginning of the month. You may also find that you have more energy overall, and that what you sense coming up on the horizon is something good rather than bad.
Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox): While you may find challenges present regarding communication and prosperity, you may also notice all of the good things occurring right now, especially when it comes to business and your career. The love life may be particularly passionate as well, helping to take the edge off of the challenges mentioned above. As the month marches on, you may find the same challenges are there regarding money and investments, but other than that things have improved since the start of 2019, so it would be wise to stay focused on the positive to start the year off right.
