ROSE MARCUS ~ Evolutionary Astrologer ~ ASTROLINK

2019 is front loaded! Thanks to Mars, freshly at it in Aries (starting on New Year’s Eve 2018), a solar eclipse on January 5, the end of Uranus retrograde on January 6, and a super full moon, total lunar eclipse on January 20/21, expect to see the year hit the ground running. 2019 is on the clock with no time to waste and major agendas to tackle. January’s transits put the squeeze on existing reality. It’s time to come up with a new format pronto quick.

Aries forecast
Most productive place to apply effort: career, accreditation, develop your professional reputation; re-prioritize, work to develop better boundaries, better control
Area of greatest potential: learn/explore more; publishing, new marketing ventures, travel, relocation, spiritual development

Hopefully you were able to rest up over the holidays as there is no time for that now! January is a fast track month, thanks to Mars out the starting gate in Aries, a solar eclipse on January 5, Uranus in Aries ending retrograde on January 6, and a total lunar eclipse on January 20 (or 21 depending on your time zone).  Whew! And that’s just the first few weeks of the year!

Taurus forecast

Most productive place to apply effort: aim to conquer the resistance/the roadblock; force yourself to make the necessary change; work harder to secure your future; pay up front for later gain
Area of greatest potential: a new social life, lifestyle, a new goal

If you are born on or near April 19 you are in for radical change. Whether the experience is an undercurrent or an outer reality, likely the change is already well underway thanks to the introduction of Uranus into Taurus in 2018 (May 15 through Nov 6, 2018). Of course, change is on the roster in varying degrees for all of us.

Gemini forecast

Most productive place to apply effort:  Reduce debt or overhead, manage finances, taxes, aim for the finish line
Area of greatest potential: explore beyond what you know; try something foreign to you, research more; question more, do more; listen with your mind, speak with your heart; let experience be your teacher, your guide and your conscience; the truth is your wisest council

Some prospects, potentials, or goals can be on a disappearing track. Some people you have cherished, sought after, or answered to can be too.  In dynamic alignment with Neptune (square aspect) Jupiter in Sagittarius continues to make 2019 a big year for endings and transitions. Some of the fade out is a natural progression, some of the loss creates a deep void; in other instances, loss paves the way to gain. Each is a facet of the whole.

Cancer forecast

Most productive place to apply effort: build more effective communication tracks, put better boundaries in place; establish yourself/build your reputation; stay realistic regarding what others can and cannot do for you; learn to work more effectively within the limitations or requirements; make health and healthy living a chief priority
Area of greatest growth potential: a new job, training program, marketing venture, health regime, agent or advisor, relocation

2019 is a feature year for your sign. Expect to experience big change and more big living in the year ahead. The past is up for review in some specific and bust up the concrete way. Nothing new, you say? While you have been grappling with the past and its consequences for a long time now, Uranus, on a completion in Aries through mid March, takes it/takes you (the reality; your conscious awareness) into the next phase of your evolutionary mandate which is labelled “no turning back now”.

Leo forecast

Most productive place to apply effort: prioritize health; force yourself to do the grunt work/the work that is necessary (all levels); dig yourself out of the hole; don’t let the pressure get to you; make due and use what you have more effectively
Area of greatest growth potential: matters of heart; creative endeavours; staying positive; your ability to improvise, to inspire others, to go above and beyond for those you love/for what you love

You have significant work to do. Launching the year, the solar eclipse of January 5 is cementing in this regard. When it comes to getting your health, your home life, your emotional or material world under better control, there is no time to waste and significant benefit to be had. Roll up your sleeves, put your heart into it and watch the good it does you. Mars, freshly at in Aries, the end of Uranus retrograde on January 6 and Venus into Sagittarius as of January 7 supply you with ample fuel.

Virgo forecast

Most productive place to apply effort: professional development; parenting; getting yourself under better control; getting a better handle on what’s necessary; working it out for yourself
Area of greatest growth potential: be honest with yourself; relocation; expand your knowledge base; get more hands-on experience;

The world is changing and so are you. Recognize it or not, there is a major line in the sand between who you were and who are you becoming, from yesterday and tomorrow. You are moving past the past and into a whole new reality in some bigger picture way. It’s happening faster than you may be fully aware of. One way or another, you are facing a significant growth spurt in the year ahead and over the next several.

Libra forecast

Most productive place to apply effort: goal setting/goal reaching; work to develop greater inner security and self control; get something new off the ground, i.e. new business, professional track, or family chapter.
Area of greatest growth potential: keep yourself up to speed with the trends; teach; train, coach; increase knowledge base and skill set;

Opening the year, Mars in Aries, the end of Uranus retrograde in Aries (January 6) and two eclipses (partial solar eclipse on January 5 and a total lunar eclipse on January 6) fire up the action. You can expect to hit the ground running right off the bat and to keep going strong, especially in the second and third weeks of January.

Scorpio forecast

Most productive place to apply effort: set solid and attainable goals, keep results driven; work harder to finish, complete, or achieve; make it official; put more attention toward marketing & professional development
Area of greatest growth potential: take more time/invest more in yourself; create more; love more; write, teach, perform; travel

Expertise, experience, a good foothold – check. Yes, you are well seasoned now. Your reality is too. While you still have plenty of work piled up in front of you, you can head into the new year with a good measure of confidence. You know you have something substantial to work with, something of substance to say, convey, or promote. The solar eclipse on January 5 solidifies the facts.

Sagittarius forecast

Most productive place to apply effort: hone a talent; develop expertise; stick with it; take it seriously; stay resourceful; build for tomorrow;
Area of greatest growth potential:  give of yourself, gain in return; heed the spiritual call; express yourself; lead by example; set your heart free

Mars, fresh at it in Aries and Mercury finishing up in Sagittarius have you going strong at the start of January. Mercury treks into Capricorn the day before the solar eclipse on January 5, but if it slows you down, it won’t be by much. Uranus in Aries ends retrograde on January 6 and Venus enters Sagittarius on January 7. You’ve come to an end, but more importantly, you have come to an important new life chapter.

Capricorn forecast

Most productive place to apply effort: your health; getting over yourself; move past the past; facing your own resistance or negativity; breaking free of conditioning patterns, excuses, or fears that hold you back; have better patience for the things that are taking too long; embrace a new personal life or professional chapter; endings; beginnings; short term/range projects and goals;
Area of greatest growth potential: leaving the past behind; trusting in the bigger picture prospect; long term goals;

One way or another, expect to hit the ground running in January. Mars in Aries keeps you on a fresh battery charge through the middle of February. You have no time to waste. Patience can be in short supply too (try not to race too far ahead of yourself!). To the plus, Mars in Aries keeps your instincts and intuition fired up too.

Aquarius forecast

Most productive place to apply effort: invest your time toward quality over quantity; aim to turn the potential into the reality; work toward tangible results and goals; stay realistic regarding what you can and cannot do
Area of greatest growth potential:  a new lifestyle/social life, a new learning curve, goal, project, friendship, agent; relocation;

Daily life hit the speed dial as January opens. Mars, freshly into Aries keeps your phone ringing and your fit-bit number-crunching your steps. The make-it-real solar eclipse in Capricorn on January 5 is accompanied by the end of Uranus retrograde in Aries (January 6). Perhaps long in the works or anticipated, your future has finally arrived. Even so, there may be more working it out or finishing up to do until you are fully transitioned into the new chapter. Look to be well on your way once you are through the next set of eclipses in the summer.

Pisces forecast

Most productive place to apply effort: your future security; short term and long-term goals/projects; develop specialized expertise; build a more solid personal and professional reputation; social networking/marketing;
Area of greatest growth potential: build on a past success; unburden /free yourself; aim higher; explore a new option; welcome a new professional or personal life status;

Mars has just taken an exit out of Pisces, but you’ll continue to have an ample fresh fuel supply to keep you going strong while Mars fires it up in Aries (through mid February). While Jupiter and Neptune, your ruler, continue to keep a question mark looming large, the solar eclipse in Capricorn is solidifying in some striking, perhaps unexpected forward thrust way.
