General for Week Commencing: Monday 14 January 2019

   Aries Monday 14 January 2019  Mar 21 - Apr 19
Starting the week with the Moon in Aries is going to grab your attention from the get go and rightfully so. This will ensure your instincts are sharp and your imagination is fuelled from the get go and this will prove a real advantage. For to say that this week is sending mixed signals is an understatement, but in reality, this is a taste of what to expect this year. The mixed messages are coming from the very diverse and exciting forces in play. With the Sun leaving your career sector on Sunday and Mercury next week, there is a need to keep your professional hat on. Yet as Venus spends her first full week in an adventurous part of your chart, she has not only teamed up with lucky Jupiter here but is even drawing in Mars, as he moves through Aries. This is a week for being on your game professionally, but where there is a real passion for adventure that is begging to be embraced.
   Taurus Monday 14 January 2019  Apr 20 - May 20
This week you have a number of fairly significant developments. You have the Sun leaving an adventurous part of your chart and returning to your career sector over the weekend. You have a special alignment of communication and relationship forces in play for the majority of the week and another starting midweek that will give money matters and your financial confidence a boost. Yet for you, more important than anything else, is the Moon’s transit through Taurus midweek. This first visit for the year is always a valuable chance to get your bearings. Yet this is less because the Moon will return to sharpen your instincts and fuel your imagination and more what this will pick up on. Your birthday month and new solar year are still several months away, but your sixth sense will pick up on new doors that are several weeks not months away.
   Gemini Monday 14 January 2019  May 21 - Jun 21
The Moon will make its first visit to Gemini for the year this week and with it a valuable chance to test the waters on a number of fronts. There will be no planetary activity in Gemini until Mars returns at the end of March, so there is no pressure to pay attention to every sign, message and nuance. However, the Moon returns to find not only Jupiter in your relationship sector but Venus as well. This is the planet of love’s first full week in your relationship sector and her first encounter with lucky Jupiter here in 12 years. Yet as the Moon opposes both, it will be to advocate your own needs. This might create some tension, as it moves through from Thursday to Saturday. However, this is simply a chance to put a balance between your personal and relationship needs to the test, with a lunar eclipse in your communication sector early next week able to give this a voice.
   Cancer Monday 14 January 2019  Jun 22 - Jul 22
The Moon’s return to your career sector over the weekend has done more than allow you to begin the week with your professional instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go. The Moon’s return on Saturday began a 10 day period that could see an explosion of developments across the income, work and career fronts. This is so important that across all three fronts, this 10 day period represents the point where everything until now has led up to and everything from now will lead on from. This hasn’t been triggered by the Moon’s return, but this will ensure your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled as things start coming together. It begins with an alignment between Mars in your career sector and Venus in your work sector from Thursday, their first here in 30 years. This will end next Monday, just as Venus begins an alignment with Jupiter and as a total lunar eclipse in your income sector rounds off this potentially game changing 10 day period.
   Leo Monday 14 January 2019  Jul 23 - Aug 22
If you weren’t already aware of a need for work/life balance or smart time management, you will be by the end of this week. This is the kind of week the bards of old were referring to when they spoke of it never raining but it pours. For what you have this week are exciting developments raining down on you from all directions. This is an important professional week, with the Moon returning to your career sector during the Sun’s final days in your work sector. The Moon is here midweek and as well as ensuring your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled during an important week on the job front, there will be clues to career developments ahead in their own right. Yet this is not only a week where there are some playful and adventurous forces in play, but when they literally join forces. And on both fronts, the message is, ‘we are here to stay’.
   Virgo Monday 14 January 2019  Aug 23 - Sep 22
In a year when things have been slow to crank up professionally, the week is doing the same. Yet in all fairness, while the Sun will return to your work sector it is not until Sunday and the real impact won’t be felt until next week. This is when your professional year will finally hit its stride and with Mercury returning next week as well, you will also have a chance to get your head in the game. While this is how the week will end, the week itself appears to rebel at first. Not only is the Sun holding out, working to make the most of his final days in a playful part of your chart, he is joined by adventurous lunar vibes midweek. However, as you approach the weekend things will start to shift, thanks to the Moon’s return to your career sector on Thursday. The Moon will leave on Saturday but will ensure that when the solar spotlight shifts onto your work situation and job matters a day later, your professional instincts and imagination are fuelled from the get go.
   Libra Monday 14 January 2019  Sep 23 - Oct 23
As the Moon continues to make its first visits to each area of your chart for the year, there will be a range of responses. This week the Moon is on the opposite side of the sky to where the majority of the planets are lined up, though there is one noticeable miss. The week begins with the Moon in your relationship sector, something that for much of the second half of 2018, would have pushed some buttons. Yet with no planetary activity in Libra and Venus spending her first full week in your communication sector, this is a timely chance to fuel your emotional responses. For this week will play host to an alignment between Mars in your relationship sector and Venus in your communication sector, their first here in 30 years. The Moon will move on to visit your financial sector midweek and while a clash with Ceres, in her last full week in your income sector might create some financial tension, this is more likely to prove motivating.
   Scorpio Monday 14 January 2019  Oct 24 - Nov 21
There is a whole series of significant alignments taking place this week that brings home how vibrant and diverse 2019 is destined to be. The week begins with the Moon in your work sector, giving you an intuitive read on work and job matters from the get go. With Venus in her first full week in your income sector and moving towards an alignment with Mars in your work sector midweek, the timing couldn’t be better. Especially as each day takes you close to a total lunar eclipse in your career sector early next week. Yet the Moon’s return to your relationship sector midweek will not only fuel your emotional responses when there are a massive amount of communication gods on the field, but in a way that brings a taste of things to come. What creates the real diversity his week, are the mix of playful and adventurous forces that have come out to support Ceres, in her last full week in Scorpio.
   Sagittarius Monday 14 January 2019  Nov 22 - Dec 21
There is a definite bias towards matters of the heart this week, but there are also clues to some competition ahead. As Venus, the planet of love spends her first full week in Sagittarius she literally can’t believe her luck. Not only is lucky Jupiter already here, holding the doors open and rolling out the red carpet, she returned last week to find Mars in a fun, playful, romantic and creatively charged part of your chart. Venus returns to Sagittarius at least once a year, but the last time she returned to find Mars fuelling your romantic and creative passions was 30 years ago. They align this week, creating some seriously auspicious conditions for matters of the heart and all things fun, playful, romantic and creative. Yet the Moon’s return to your work sector midweek also holds clues to new work and job developments ahead, just as the Sun is moving into his final days in your income sector.
   Capricorn Monday 14 January 2019  Dec 22 - Jan 19
While your birthday month will end this week, it is not until the very end of the week, with the Sun leaving Capricorn on Sunday. This gives you time to continue to focus on getting your bearings as you embark on what is both powerful a solar year in its own right, but also a stepping stone to next year, which is off the scale. By the time the Sun returns to Capricorn in December, to begin your next birthday month and new solar year Jupiter will be here as well. With Saturn and Pluto already in Capricorn and staying here all year, you are embarking on two of the most powerful years in a lifetime. Yet back here during the final days of this birthday month, there is no pressure to have a game plan or to even know what you want from the coming year. With Venus not returning until early next month, it is more about having an authentic starting point.
   Aquarius Monday 14 January 2019  Jan 20 - Feb 18
From the moment you move into the new week you are preparing for an event in the final hours of the week. Not just any event, but the Sun’s return to Aquarius and the start of your birthday month and new solar year, something that you already have a head start on, whether you realise it or not. It was the six months that Mars spent in Aquarius last year and the 18 months that the South Node had spent here before they both left in November, that has both cleared the way and planted seeds for new beginnings. Until then, the focus is more on the wind down of your old solar year, but with a lot less urgency than you might expect. While the Sun will leave a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart and return to Aquarius on Sunday and Mercury will follow next week, a need for time to reflect will continue. In fact, the lines between the past, present and future will remain blurred all year.
   Pisces Monday 14 January 2019  Feb 19 - Mar 20
This week is dominated by two auspicious alignments, each creating opportunities and a lot of confidence, but in completely different ways. So much so that from the get go, work/life balance will need to be a priority. The first alignment begins on Monday and runs for the majority of the week and is between Ceres, in her last full week in an adventurous and the North Node, in a playful part of your chart. This will be kept alive by the playful lunar vibes that come into effect over the weekend. Yet by then an even more powerful alignment between Mars in your income and Venus in your career sector, their first here in 30 years, will be underway. And it will still be underway during a total lunar eclipse on the job front early next week. Sometimes there can be too much of a good thing, but that is not the case this week. Having to find a balance between work and play is a problem the rest of us would love to have.
