Romance, Children, Creativity

The big news this year is Jupiter's transit through your 5th house of romance, children, and creativity all the way through December, lucky news for you considering this is the house your sign rules! 

Jupiter here will work to help you achieve your 5th house goals- you could find love, have a baby, complete a creative project, or launch a company! I'm sure that's a welcome relief after the last few years, when Saturn's tour of Sagittarius and this same 5th house (up until the end of 2017) left you dealing with challenges in this area of life. 

I especially like the third week of January, when Jupiter will conjunct Venus in your love zone, and the pair will make a gorgeous trine to motivator Mars in your travel house. You could find love abroad or even discover a pregnancy at this time! This would also be a good aspect to launch a start-up company or begin a creative or visionary project. 

In fact, this same week (January 21st) sees a lunar eclipse in your sign of Leo conjunct the fated North Node! It seems something important to you will come to a head at this time, perhaps regarding a relationship or personal project. Just beware- Uranus will be angry at the eclipse from your travel zone- so it's actually possible that whatever comes up is at odds with a planned vacation or a partner (Uranus rules your sign of committed partners). 


This year also sees two mighty planets- Jupiter and Neptune- facing off 3 separate times- on January 13thJune 16th, and September 21st- in your 5th and 8th houses. It seems there could be some big changes in these areas of life, and it's possible that any 5th house goals you achieve (love, babies, creativity) prove expensive. 

The last time Jupiter squared Neptune was June 2012- when Jupiter was in your 11th house and Neptune was in your 8th. Did you experience any major life changes back then? If so, they could offer clues as to what the following year could bring. Before that, we look to January through September of 2006, when Jupiter in your home zone squared Neptune in your relationship house. 

Luckily, there is simultaneously a very stabilizing influence going on, and that is Saturn's sextile to Neptune in your financial zone on January 31st, June 16th, and November 8th. Saturn's support seems to ensure that you'll find the money you need, as Saturn looks to build a strong foundation for you for the future. This would also be a very helpful influence if you have surgery of any kind. 

Work and Health

Now, let's talk work and health, because there is a lot, and I mean A LOT, happening in Capricorn and your 6th house of work, health, and daily routines this year. I'm talking 3 eclipses in Capricorn in 2019, as well as Saturn, the South Node and Pluto all transiting Capricorn all year, and finally Jupiter's move to Capricorn at the end of the year. See what I mean? A LOT IS HAPPENING IN YOUR 6TH HOUSE OF WORK AND HEALTH!

Saturn entered this sector about a year ago for you, so it's possible that you've already begun to experience his effect. You may have gotten a new job that's required a lot of work and hours from you. Alternatively, you could have gotten laid off, experienced trouble finding work, or had problems with an assistant or your physical work environment. 

It's also possible that you've been experiencing some health issues- you might have even broken a bone or had to get dental work. Or, perhaps you're simply becoming stricter about your health routine, maintaining a strict diet or intense work out regimen. 

Pluto has also been in your work and health zone since '08, and has about 5 more years in this house. Additionally, the South Node entered Capricorn just this past November (2018), providing even further evidence that you're examining 6th house matters this year. 

Usually new and full moons and eclipses sweep change into our lives, and this year, the season of Capricorn kicks off with a solar eclipse on January 5th. With Saturn and Pluto conjunct the eclipse, and Neptune making a gorgeous sextile from your financial zone, I think you'll like what comes up! 

You could get a new job with a nice new salary, or perhaps have a successful surgery!

It's possible this solar eclipse will offer you a solution to any 6th house problems going on, but if not, there's ANOTHER Capricorn eclipse 6 months later, this one lunar (on July 16th). This one will also conjunct Saturn and Pluto and sextile Neptune, and it's possible that anything you initiated in January bears fruit around this time! For instance, perhaps you begin your job hunt in January and get an offer in July. Or perhaps you learn of a health or dental issue in January, and successfully treat it in July. 

Fear not- for you have another opportunity for change on December 26th, when there's yet ANOTHER solar eclipse, at 4 degrees Capricorn, and this one is the most beautiful one of all. That's because this same month sees lucky planet Jupiter enter Capricorn, and make a nearly exact conjunct to the eclipse. The eclipse will also conjunct Mercury, and make a beautiful aspect to Uranus in your career zone.

If you've been looking for a new job, this eclipse will answer your prayers! And it seems any job you get will raise your status considerably! This of course is also excellent news for your health as well, as Jupiter will work to heal any problems you’ve faced.

2019 will work hard all year to see you transform matters of work and health, and it seems it will all pay off in December, with help from this eclipse and good luck Jupiter. Jupiter's arrival will make any disruption this year worth it. In fact, I love December 15th, when Jupiter will make a gorgeous trine to Uranus in your 10th house of career.

Closure, Acceptance, Release

Now, one area of life that seems to go swimmingly well for you all year is your 12th house of closure. That's because the North Node, which is a fated point and a very lucky influence, is currently transiting this same sector. While this may not seem like the most glamorous position for the North Node, it is great if you are looking to address a health issue, work on a creative project, or let go of an outworn situation or relationship.

Not only that, but there is actually a gorgeous solar eclipse in your 12th house of closure on July 2nd, making a lovely aspect to Uranus in your career house. The ellipse will also reach out happily to Neptune in your financial zone AND conjunct the fated North Node. This would be an excellent month to complete a work project or make a sale!
