To start things off the right foot, we want to wish you a very happy new year 2019! After what was one of the busiest years ever, we look forward to seeing what 2019 brings. From newly set goals, to ambitions and motivations to make the most of a new chapter, there’s no better timing than January to think clearly, and prioritise what’s truly important to oneself.
In terms of the zodiac and horoscopes, we’re almost done celebrating Capricorns as we slowly move into Aquarius on the 20th. Speaking of, a lot of changes are on the horizon, and January might feel like a rude awakening if not prepared. On the eclipses front, there will be two – including a super moon. But don’t worry, like with every horoscope, there will be some good predictions we look forward to, so rest assured that the first month of January will be full of surprises and definitely eventful!
But before we divulge any more predictions, keep scrolling to find out what January has in store for you, the surprises you might encounter, and more!
December 22nd – January 19th
Happy new year dear Caps! You’re starting the year off with a blessing in the shape of a solar eclipse. This should give you a head start to get your priorities in order, celebrate your independence and set up your calendar before Aquarius jumps in on January 20th. In terms of planets, Saturn will be with you all year long, with Pluto coming in to intensify emotions and actions – 2019 is already looking strong for you.
January 20th – February 18th
Before we’re ready to celebrate you, we’ve got some good news coming your way dear Aquarius. To start, this will be the year where you might change home, move to a new city or upgrade your current living situation, thanks to Uranus, your ruling planet moving into your home sector. The new moon solar eclipse will shadow you to help keep things from going too fast, and prioritizing self care before your birthday month rolls around. Beware of the end of the month when things at work might get tough and you’ll have to keep your emotions at bay.
February 19th – March 20th
This month is bound to bring you some major good vibes with a side of drama. First things first, let your charm work as January will be the time to network and make things happen for the first quarter o the year. A small bump in the road is planned due to some tension between Neptune and Jupiter which may cause some issues in the work zone. But there’s nothing like a little action to get you ready for the new year, so don’t worry as it will all balance out in time for your birthday month.
March 21st – April 19th
New year, new you? Perhaps it’s still too early for you to determine what you’d like to pursue in the new year or what you’d like to improve, but we like to get an early start on that. And so should you. January is bound to be on the tough side for you as you’ll most likely decide to make a few changes in your lifestyle, but we believe in you, and there’s no time like the present. What’s also going on is some make or break dilemma in your relationship and partnership sector – the question is, will you be embarking onto 2019 with her/him or is it time to cut some strings?
April 20th – May 20th
Taurus, 2019 is off to a good start for you as there’s lots going on. You’re doomed to be busier than ever, even though it’s just the beginning of the month, and you’re ready to expand and make exciting changes to your life. Watch out for January 20th, as Aquarius comes out and might bring some emotional instability. Other than that, the 6th will mark Uranus going direct which means you’ll get a push into the right direction to get things done quicker, embark onto new projects and more!
May 21st – June 20th
January doesn’t just mark the start of a new year, but for you dear Geminis it’s also the start of an exciting adventure. You probably didn’t take too many vacation days off during the holidays and are therefore planning to head somewhere sunny at the end of the month. In the partnerships sector, we’re sensing some action and hope you pursue what you’ve been eyeing for the past weeks. Even better, why not bring a plus one on that vacation and who knows, things might blossom into something more concrete by the time Valentine’s Day comes around?
June 21st – July 22nd
So much going on this January, but nothing you can’t handle dear Cancers! For starters, Uranus going direct on the 6th will have both its upside and downside, and might hint you into a new job direction. Regarding romance, the solar eclipse new moon is bound to shake things up and bring some much needed stability and bliss to your relationship for at least a few years. Lastly, the end of the month and the lunar eclipse super moon that comes with it will make sure to get rid of that financial bump you’ve been holding on for way too long.
July 23rd – August 22nd
With the holidays almost over and a tough year behind us, use your newfound energy and good vibes attitude to tackle 2019 with all you’ve got. Your creativity will shine through in exciting work projects and you’re already mentally preparing your next holiday. When Uranus goes direct into Aries, you’ll be feeling more confident than ever and ready to take on more risks. Perhaps that means letting go of some boundaries or perhaps thinking more clearly about the future. Whatever it is, this is your year!
August 23rd – September 22nd
There’s plenty going on for you dear Virgo so make sure to get back from your holidays in one piece. The new moon solar eclipse will help you take a final decision whether it’s a professional or private relationship, and when Uranus goes direct the day after, you may have to do some readjusting in your personal finances. You’re the smart cookie in your friends group, with an especially good instinct so make sure to share your wisdom when Aquarius comes around on the 20th, and some of your friends may need to be warned about a thing or two.
September 23rd – October 22nd
It’s all sunshine and flowers, until you’re feeling kind of lost about your love life. But that’s all coming to an end in the new year. With Uranus moving into your relationship zones, you’re ready to start working on yourself and learning about what you’re truly looking for in a partner. Change might be tough to adjust, but it will help you think clearly and avoid misleading yourself and anyone else in the future. Watch out for the lunar eclipse super moon on the 21st, as it may lead to some tension in your network – so may want to sneak in a workout or two to let go of your negative thoughts.
October 23rd – November 21st
You’re starting off the year with positive news regarding your finances, which you’ve been keeping in check all of last year and are bound to continue in 2019. Work-wise, you’ve got your hands full with new projects and a full blown schedule. If you’re having a few communication glitches, don’t worry, the solar eclipse new moon on the 5th will soothe things over. As with your fellow zodiacs, Uranus going direct might cause some discrepancies along the way, but as long as you hold tight, there won’t be too many surprises. Lastly, the lunar eclipse supermoon on the 21st will send another blow your way, so make sure to thing strategically and you’ll do just fine.
November 22nd – December 21st
January is bound to keep you busy dear Sags! You’ll start off with brand new ideas for a business or a side hustle you’ve been dreaming up for a while, and then you’ll slowly move onto a rough patch with Uranus going direct on the 6th. This might mean that you’ll face some troubles in your relationships, so make sure to be communicative and open with each other. When Aquarius season starts on the 20th, there might be a toll on your finances and all you’ll need to do is think about restructuring how you’d like 2019 to look like. The supermoon at the end of the month will have you planning your next travels which will get the new year to an exciting start!
