Important Dates: New Year’s Day, January 1; Solar Eclipse, January 5; and Martin Luther King Day, January 21.
New Year Energy
It’s a New Year, ready for new opportunities, new adventures, new beginnings, new jobs, new relationships, new goals, dreams and aspirations. Have you really thought about what you would like to change in your life during this new year? Will you take that trip you have always dreamed about? Will you finally try to start a home-based business and get rid of your fear of leaving corporate? Are you ready to look for love and not be afraid of getting hurt?
Life is about experiences and lessons. How can you learn the lessons you are supposed to if you stay in your little safe corner always living the same day over and never taking a chance or making a change? Be spontaneous. Meet new people! Join clubs that interest you and get to know more people with like mind and interests. Expand your horizons. Learn more about a philosophy, religion or metaphysics. Expand your mind. Read that book you’ve always wanted to (I’m finally reading Pride and Prejudice after seeing all the movie productions of it and it’s fun to see what the original story was.) Deal with issues you’ve ignored that may be haunting you or keeping you from moving forward. Go after that new job or career. Be a positive force in the universe and more positive opportunities and dreams will be attracted to you and become a reality. Be strong even if life has thrown you some curves. We can all be what we want to be and do what we want to do – the issue is that we need to believe in ourselves and have confidence in our choices. Start the new year with confidence and purpose. Have the year you deserve. Make it a reality!
Every January, I like to remind my horoscope readers that I have adjusted the dates for each sign to reflex the actual 2019 sun signs dates. You will always remain the same sign in which you were born.

ARIES – March 21 – April 20
Many unexpected changes and new beginnings are coming your way. Old ways of doing things are now a thing of the past. You are looking for a new direction or doing things differently. A change in personal style or a makeover may be in store for you as you seem to be disappointed in the status quo. New good luck and opportunities come into your life; however, if you don’t grab them, they will disappear and will never return again. Be sure to look over the opportunity even if you are not sure that you want it. Opportunities will be presented to you for your best interest so it would be good if you at least look into it before making your decision. You may have new ideas on how to work smarter and not harder, so this is the time to put your ideas into action so you have more time to spend with family or on your own interests. Home life may be a bit confusing, but once you decide to finish projects, have the family to pitch in to help and follow a plan, your home turn into the comfortable place you’ve always wanted.
TAURUS – April 21 – May 21
You are trying to get many projects done, but seem to be getting a bit frustrated that there just isn’t enough time to complete everything. Partnerships can be a bit strained, but with patience and persistence, you can change anything that you are not happy with within the relationship. It is imperative that both of you communicate with each other and discuss what is on your mind. Your career is going in a very good direction. There are many possibilities for a promotion or change of job for more money, if you are looking for something new. It also seems as if this is a time where you are playing the role of everyone’s mother by giving advice, opinions, making decisions for others and generally just by being there as a shoulder to cry on. This is a compassionate thing to do; however, your energy seems to be going to others while your energy field is being drained more and more as the days go by. So, be careful not to let your immune system be compromised. You must rest, take care of yourself and let others take care of their own lives for awhile.
GEMINI – May 22 – June 21
Money still continues to be a worry, but with determination and persistence, you will be able to pay your bills and get those special projects around the house done in a timely manner. You may have to put some of the more expensive projects on hold for now, but not for long. Depression or sadness may take hold of you from time to time as you review your last year and realize that you hadn’t accomplished all that you wanted to. Giving more attention to your needs would be a big help in attaining your goals. Your energy is scattered all over the place, so start prioritizing your life. You may be wondering where you will be a year from now. Creative budgeting and common sense get you through the month just fine.
CANCER – June 22 – July 23
Family and home are very important. Life may be blown out of proportion so just go with the flow on many things. Don’t get too upset before you know the outcome of certain situations. Many things will take you by surprise, but don’t worry, they will be good surprises! A conflict in home life will keep you overwhelmed and stressed, so ask for help, put things on the back burner and just do what absolutely has to get done at the moment so you can handle any issue that needs to be taken care of. You are thinking about so many different areas of your life that you would like to enhance or change, but Cancerians are not the easiest sign to accept change. You need to figure out exactly what it is you want out of your job, your family, your career and your life in general before those things can be given to you.
LEO – July 24 – August 23
Children will be your main focus now, so be sure to prepare interesting and creative projects for them to learn from as well as gain a brand-new skill. Romantic love takes a giant leap forward and you are really ready for this after the last year you have had. Be open to new relationships and just know that someone special is coming your way. If married or involved, your relationship seems to be going in a much better direction once there is a bit of compromise or mutual understanding about your future together. Friendships can be confusing and you may even find out that one of your trusted friends have betrayed you in some way. It is up to you whether or not to forgive your friend, but be sure this was not just a misunderstanding or mistake.
VIRGO – August 24 – September 23
Health, diet and exercise are being activated now; however, health concerns may be real. If you are not feeling well or are worried about something that just doesn’t feel right in your body, a quick trip to the doctor will help you decide on your next course of action. Rest is very important for you now since it doesn’t look as if you ever quit. You keep doing more and more and your leisure time seems to be less frequent, if you have any at all. Metaphysics or esoteric teachings may be of interest. A class or two may be in your future to learn a particular modality or a new topic in general. You want to learn something new and seem to be moving into the spiritual realm. Many changes are coming for you and if they are planned, they will be wonderful. If you let the universe run your life then you are never really prepared for what will manifest for you. Finish other projects before starting new ones.
LIBRA – September 24 – October 23
Personal and business relationships (as well as situations dealing with the law or court in some way) are the main focus now. Your activities keep you busy, and if you look into your health issues just a little bit more, you will do well. You go back and forth on many decisions which really need to be made. Always listen to the first thought that comes into your mind about a particular issue and just accept that as a Divine answer to your question. Not deciding is not a decision. Seeing both sides to a situation is amazing but not if it keeps you confused and overwhelmed. Your procrastination is at an all time high and if you keep procrastinating, you will attract more negative energy to you and who needs that?
SCORPIO – October 24 – November 22
Emotions can be very tricky this month, especially if it includes your partner. You may seem overly jealous or possessive but a logical talk with your partner will put your mind to rest. You are overthinking. Keeping life in perspective has never been hard for you to do; however, you may feel as if too many things are just not going as planned. You are getting more comfortable with your life, especially if you’ve recently made a major move in your career or home. Finishing those long-forgotten projects or things that have bothered you (because you haven’t had the time to complete them) will help you feel a sense of stability and security. You need to organize your life, get rid of things that mean nothing to you and only keep those things that are essential to your well being and happiness. Decluttering or organizing your life and home will also bring in good luck and more positive opportunities that will be in your best interest.
SAGITTARIUS – November 23 – December 22
Creativity, long distance travel and education are activated now. You are interested in so many areas of life and what you can and can’t do. Don’t limit yourself in any way. Get out there and make a difference in your life and the life of others. Money issues need to be clarified and dealt with so that you will no longer worry about your financial future. Update financial records, wills, and tax records so that everything will be at hand if needed. Spirituality, artistic ability and metaphysics become important now as you want to learn everything that you can about the subjects you have an interest in. This is a great time to paint, start a new project, read and think about what it is you want to accomplish in the near future.
CAPRICORN – December 23 – January 20
There will be a lot of activity at work so be prepared to work hard and get a little bit more organized. You may also start thinking of getting the next certification for your business so you can proceed to bigger and better things. There is so much going on within your head. Your energy levels are strong and yet you just seem to be standing still. Don’t over think your decisions. Once you’ve made them stick with them or just fix the error you’ve made and move on! Change is on the horizon as well as thinking about so many different areas of life that you wish could be changed or that never happened. Some reciprocal energy is required now for your good mental and physical health.
AQUARIUS – January 21 – February 18
Friends are the highlight of the month. Some members of the opposite sex may want to be more than friends, but you are very specific when it comes to choosing a romantic partner. Friends may want to set you up on a blind date. Go, it’s just a date and you may meet the woman/man of your dreams. Make sure you are living in reality before you make any important changes. Resting, reading or exercising will help you get back into great physical shape or state of mind. Relieve stress and make some alone time for yourself and then Magic will mysteriously appear all around you, if you look for it. Nature is helping you connect with those who have passed on and you feel it. It’s an amazing time for you to meet a new partner and you may even get serious with one or two.
PISCES – February 19 – March 20
Mysterious and unusual circumstances follow you no matter where you go. What else is new? Many secrets seem to be around you now, but they are not too important anyway, so you should not be concerned. Just ignore the negative energy and you will be just fine. A few hospital tests or visiting someone in the hospital may be at hand. Uncovering your passion for reading, learning, creativity and artist pursuits will help calm you down and clarify the things that have been bothering you. Spirituality is always a fine way of getting back to the things you believe in. Teaching or taking a class or two will help you attain the confidence you need to move forward in a very positive way. The year is like a rose starting to blossom a little each day.
