It’s been 2-years since Mars injected fire, courage and motivation in your 7th house of relationships. If you’re single, you may feel the need to seek companionship or find a partner. If you are already spoken for, intense Mars can heat things up and increase the passion between you.

The proverbial yellow brick road may open up for you on June 12/13 as Mars and the North Node join forces.

The very nature of Mars can bring tension and link to Saturn and Pluto may highlight that fact, especially on June 15, 19 and 20.

Three eclipses in Capricorn with Saturn and Pluto promise to make 2019 a notable year for personal growth and development. The ringed planet will continue to bring new clarity around your obligations. Letting go of some responsibilities involving other people and focus on yourself may be required. This might mean you’re not as available to your loved ones as you create new foundations in your life. Time will become a precious resource to you that demands careful discernment about how you spend it and with whom you spend it with. As Saturn has associations with the process of aging, you may become more aware of how the years are passing and how this affects your physical body. Your health, fitness and overall well-being may also feature high on your list of priorities this year.
Three eclipses attached to themes of release, letting go and spirituality activate your sign. January 6, July 17 and December 26 feature lunations tied to the karmic South Node. These eclipses may prompt you to reassess and recalibrate your perspectives. It may mean making important choices that seemingly defy logic or reason, but you may be surprised at how easily you’re ready to let go of what’s weighed you down, physically and emotionally. Saturn and Neptune work together three times throughout the year to help you gently dissolve structures in your life that have held you back.
Themes of spirituality feature again, as well as compassion, creativity and healing. Learning more about these avenues may assist you in learning more about yourself. These two planets connect on January 24–February 1, June 15–29 and again on November 9–11.

The way you experience pleasure in life is set to undergo surprising, yet welcome changes. You may be initially surprised by some of the choices you find yourself making. You may opt for experience driven activities rather than spending money on materialistic items. Uranus has a ‘try anything once vibe’ and as this far-flung planet may spur you to finally try something new, or something you’ve always wanted to do.
You might return to a hobby or project from your younger days or finally pluck up the courage to try something radical or unconventional especially between February 14–March. It’s possible that your attitudes or values concerning children undergo a radical shift too. If you’ve never wanted children, you may find that changes. If you already have children or grandchildren, your approach to parenting or caring for them may begin to move in a new direction. Breakthroughs around romance and dating are expected. If you’ve been single a long time, the potential to meet someone totally out of the blue is possible, especially as Venus and Uranus unite on May 18/19.
If you’re partnered, you may opt out of your usual routine and enjoy a unique experience that can help bring you closer together in new and exciting ways. December is set to be an especially exciting month as Jupiter moves into your sign and links with Uranus. The changes you adopt throughout the year in respect to love, joy and happiness are set to bring you happy developments or a brilliant opportunity as 2019 moves into 2020.
A thorough analysis of your friends, networks and industry associates is highlighted as Mercury takes and extended tour through Scorpio and your 11th house. You may be particularly cautious from November 2 – 21 as Mercury moves backwards. You might begin to question the motives of those around you or make choices about who’ll remain in your close circle of trust and those who’ll stay on the periphery.
Mercury will make three links to confusing Neptune, which may spotlight the typical Mercury retrograde themes such as crossed-wires and miscommunications. You may need to double check the details when making social arrangements. On a side note, the Mercury/Neptune connection can promote emotional conversations, where you may be the giver of compassion and support to a friend or colleague. These two planets work together on October 16, November 14 and 28. Active Mars enters Scorpio from November 19 – January 3 2020, injecting a new sense of motivation, courage and leadership within your social circles.
As Mars makes his once in every 2- year visit to your friends’ sector, he’ll connect with Saturn and Pluto in the last half of December. You may discover the true motivations of those in your social circles.
When it comes To taking a holiday or restoring your faith in what’s possible, a series of planets tour Virgo and your 9th house of adventure, discovery and travel are active in the third quarter of the year. Mars leads the way from August 18 through until October 4. This may be a peak period of restlessness and willingness to get out of your comfort zone and explore what the world has to offer. Overseas destinations may beckon, but you may have to satisfy that itch through exploring your local environment or taking regular short breaks away.
August 26, 28, 30 and September 1 are particularly electric where a new experience or a fresh perspective about something you’ve been learning about helps you see life in a new way. This is especially highlighted as a triple treat from the Sun, Mercury and Mars on September 4 offer a renewal of your ideas and motivation about an exotic location or a study pathway. A creative vision or a longing desire for adventure may also be realised then.
Opportunities to take a personal or work-related goal to the next level opens up as planets in Virgo connect with those in your own sign. The chance to prove yourself or demonstrate your mastery to a global audience, or to those you aspire to be like is possible then. A work-related travel opportunity may present itself or you may make the transition into becoming a teacher in your chosen field or delve into academia. These key dates occur when Saturn and Pluto work their magic on September 2, 5-9, 14, 19 and 20.
Your 12th sector of retreat is activated by Jupiter in Sagittarius from November 8 2019–December 3 2019. This cycle of expansion in your most private sector only happens once every 12 years, so this may be a year of integrating what you’ve learned during this last cycle and gaining fresh perspectives about it. You might discover you begin to say yes to things and in ways that weren’t an option in the past.
With a flurry of activity and change in other sectors of your life, making down time and retreat a part of your plan this year will be a must. You may discover that you achieve more in private or if you bunker down in isolation, away from distractions. Jupiter in Sagittarius is associated with seeking knowledge, purpose and meaning and it’s your inner landscape you’ll be keen to explore. If you decide that you’ve lost that special zest for life, you may find inspiration from exotic places, cultures or foreign faith and religion. Jupiter and Neptune clash in January, June and September encouraging you to continue to work towards what you cannot necessarily see, but toward what you can feel.
