Daily Horoscopes for Friday 18 January 2019

   Aries   Mar 21 - Apr 19
Mars returns to Aries once every other year and if he finds Venus in any other Fire sign this is exciting, for it means there will be natural support between the two. However, it has been 30 years since Mars has returned to find Venus in an adventurous part of your chart, with their alignment bringing together a potent mix that is fuelling a passion for adventure and giving you the courage to follow your heart. The one problem is that this comes during the Sun’s final days in your career sector, but a balance between work and play is something you will need to juggle all year.
 
   Taurus   Apr 20 - May 20
The Moon’s departure from Taurus yesterday was always going to leave you with valuable clues, hunches and insights which you can now begin to process. Yet, while this first visit for the year is always a chance to get your bearings, it doesn’t normally leave you with a sense of excitement and anticipation. With your birthday month and new solar year still three months away, your gut will be telling you that new doors are due to open before then. What you are sensing is weeks rather than months away.
 
   Gemini   May 21 - Jun 21
The Moon’s first visit to Gemini for the year is always a valuable chance to get your bearings and to listen to your inner voice. This year this is also a chance to test the waters on the relationship front and in particular when it comes to a balance between your personal and relationship needs. After Venus’ return to your relationship sector 10 days ago, an opposition with the Moon today might push some buttons, but is a valuable chance to test the balance between your personal and relationship needs.
 
   Cancer   Jun 22 - Jul 22
Everything about the Moon’s return to Cancer tomorrow is important, making it essential to already have your antennas up, but your mind and your options open. This first visit for the year is always a chance to get your bearings, but coming full circle from a Full Moon just before Christmas, this is likely to see a lot of things fall into place. This will give you an intuitive edge, at a point of the year when there are a lot of exciting developments due to unfold over the coming days, across the personal, financial, income, work and career fronts.
 
   Leo   Jul 23 - Aug 22
The Sun might be the largest and most powerful force in the solar system, but he is getting a run for his money today and throughout his final days in your work sector. Where the Sun wants you to keep your work hat on, an alignment between Venus and Mars and the passionate, playful and adventurous forces they bring together have a different idea. If it was a case of waiting it out until the Sun left your work sector, then you could juggle the next few days, but a balance between work and play is something you will have to juggle all year.
 
   Virgo   Aug 23 - Sep 22
The Moon’s first visit to your career sector for the year is always a valuable chance to get your bearings, fuelling your professional instincts and imagination in the early weeks of this new professional year. Yet just days before the Sun’s return to your work sector over the weekend, the timing couldn’t be better. Even the fact that the Moon will leave before the Sun returns means you have a chance to gain some valuable clues, hunches and insights first, giving you an edge from the get go.
 
   Libra   Sep 23 - Oct 23
The Moon’s return to your career sector tomorrow will be a lot more than a chance to tap into your professional instincts and imagination for the first time this year. While things have dialled back since Mars left your work sector on New Year’s Day, coming full circle from last month’s Full Moon, the Moon is set to expose the fact that income, work and career forces are still very much alive and thriving. For now, today’s adventurous lunar vibes provide the perfect distraction, especially against overthinking things.
 
   Scorpio   Oct 24 - Nov 21
This is one day when instead of financial tension being something to fear, it is something to get excited about. As the Moon makes its first visit to your financial sector for the year it is simply passing through, with very little other focus on money matters. The Moon will fuel your financial instincts and imagination, before leaving tomorrow. It is an opposition with Venus and Jupiter in your income sector that might create some financial tension, but there will be such a backlash from some seriously auspicious forces across the income, work and career fronts, that this can only be positive.
 
   Sagittarius   Nov 22 - Dec 21
In the early weeks of 2019 a new trend is emerging, one that you might not have seen coming as recently as the New Year. If you moved into the New Year expecting the same old same old, this has already proved obsolete. The area of your chart and your life that is rising up to meet you with an unstoppable force is matters of the heart, all things fun, playful, romantic and creative and the things you are passionate about. A life that is all work and no play has no place in 2019.
 
   Capricorn   Dec 22 - Jan 19
The final days of your birthday month are all about having your eyes open and head out of the sand, watching and observing without overthinking things or making assumptions. A solar eclipse earlier in the month has already revealed that this is no ordinary year, with a chance over the coming days to look at change more objectively. While your birthday month is drawing to a close, new doors are still opening and a conveyor belt of opportunities continues to display more and more possibilities.
 
   Aquarius   Jan 20 - Feb 18
The closing days of any solar year requires several things. It requires time for reflection, as one solar year draws to a close and another prepares to begin. It also requires an open mind and a willingness to let your imagination run its course, as you consider the possibilities for the coming year. Yet rather than begin your birthday month and new solar year with a wish list from the get go, there is a need to have your mind and your options open. If you dare to believe that anything is possible, then anything really is possible.
 
   Pisces   Feb 19 - Mar 20
It is the Moon that might create some work/life balance tension today, but the timing couldn’t be better. You are preparing to move into some stunning and potentially game changing days across the income, work and career fronts. Yet not only is the Moon coming full circle from a playful Full Moon tomorrow, the wind down of your old solar year begins over the weekend. These work/life balance reminders will be few and far between this year, making it important to pay attention.
