Aquarius (Jan 20-Feb 18)
Get your warrior on, Aquarius! 2019 begins with Aries moving into Mars. This powerful combination of Aries and Mars lights up your 3rd house which governs the attitude and mind. You are known for brilliant ideas, out-of-the-box thinking, and yes, some inane musings too. You'll have a zillion ideas percolating at once; your brain will run at lightning speed and the rest of us may not be able to keep up. So, you can get impatient, even argumentative. Don't do that! Instead, share your ideas—patiently and with kindness. Your enthusiastic mental activity is contagious. You should go teach a class, write, or even perform a spoken word slam to express and empty your active mind. Do be especially conscious of miscommunication with your siblings or neighbors. In whatever case, the past month’s eclipse shifted your love and career aspects life big-time. Now, Leo offers a place to find more joy, creativity, and love. Seize this full moon, Aquarius, with your warrior spirit. Just keep checking in so you don't default to aloof. We all love and need you, Aquarius. Raise that sword and move forward into a meaningful 2019.
Pisces (Feb 19- Mar 20)
Get connected, Pisces! February kicks off with Mars, your inner barracuda, swimming in the 2nd house of self-worth, money, and talents. You're driven to increase cash flow and pursue a money-making venture. The more money you have, the more secure you feel. Still, dear Pisces, don't measure your self-worth by the amount of money in your bank account. Your value is determined by so much more than green paper. Last month’s New Moon Solar Eclipse lands in Capricorn, your fellow compadre in the sky. This activates your 11th house of friends, community, and future aspirations. The big-boy planets, Pluto and Saturn, have been residing there for a while to stir things up. Now, add a solar eclipse, and you've got a "mini-tsunami" of change lasting up to a year. Pluto is the transformer; Saturn the disciplinary. Stay focused and unite with your people. They are so wonderfully diverse and dynamic- you seek them out, and they bond with you. With that eclipse in Capricorn, it's up to you to keep the tribe together and lead. With your natural-born gift of connecting people to each other and to the cosmos, this should be a piece of cake. Pisces, live fully. Learn, laugh, love. I know this may sound cliché, but you've gotta to it. The eclipses have been in Leo for the past 18 months, pushing you toward optimal happiness!

Taurus (April 20- May 20)
Renew your passport, Taurus! 2019 is the year of travel. February kicks off the with the planet Mars moving into your 12th house. It is the ideal time to head out of town. Your travels should not be frivolous; they really need to serve a purpose. This month is also an opportunity for retreat and reflection. Work alone, or keep your office door closed; you'll be more productive and creative when you can think quietly. Make sure to rest up, replenish body and soul, and let your imagination soar. Maybe tap the travel bug and do this on an impromptu, weekend vacay. On February 5th, a Solar Eclipse occurs in Capricorn. Eclipses are cosmic reboots, infusing change and new energy to the house where it lands. Capricorn governs your 9th house of education, travel, different cultures, and spirituality. Saturn, ruler of Capricorn and dweller in your 9th since last year, will stay until 2020, along with Pluto, planet of transformation. Harness your energy and add greater responsibility, structure, and self-mastery to your life.

Cancer (June 21- July 22)
This month, you are driven to succeed and nothing is stopping you. Your ambition is at an all-time high; so, tap in and thrive! Please do remember to play nice with colleagues; be a kind boss, and think before you speak. We all know that you can be quick-tempered or lack patience. Remember to blame it all on your insatiable enthusiasm and drive when asked to apologize. 2019 is shaping up to be a pivotal year... With eclipses in the signs of Cancer and Capricorn, events that happen about once every 18 years, prepare yourself for major change. Think back to 2000-01, what was happening them? Good, bad, or indifferent, you can create a new story, especially now that you're nearly 20 years wiser. On February 5th, the New Moon Eclipse lands in Capricorn, your zodiac's opposite, activating the 7th house of personal and professional partnerships.Capricorn rules this 7th house; your sense of responsibility, hard work, and sheer perseverance to keep your partnerships afloat is admirable. You still have a few more years to benefit from this energy. Those partnerships which last will last a lifetime.
Leo (July 23- Aug 22)
Leo, 2019, begins with new yearnings! When your partner in crime, Aries, slips into Mars on February 1st, you are catapulted to take off! You'll feel an itching to get away, learn something new, or meet your guru. If you can't literally escape, fantasize...or seriously, just expand your worldview. Watch a foreign film or listen to a podcast on global warming. Leo, you will grow from whatever the experience. On the 5th, the significant solar eclipse of the year occurs in Capricorn, urging you to pay attention to those aspects of your life that need to change. Capricorn governs your 6th house of self-care, work, and the daily grind. With its no-nonsense, take-care-of-business energy, Capricorn will help shift your focus inward, including health. All the while, shed old work habits that no longer serve you. You may also be offered a promotion or look to move on professionally; either way, you've got this, Leo. The spotlight is on you! The world needs your light-hearted joy and commitment to passion. Make us proud as this eclipse doesn't show up again until 2036! So, shine bright and spread your sparkle dust, dear Leo!
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)
Virgo, it's been an electric start to 2019! The month kicks off with Mars making its powerful way into Aries. Mars is a mover and shaker, inspiring action, drive, and courage. This is no time to be complacent. Like it or not, you are being prodded toward change, maybe with an intensity that's not always comfortable. Please don't fight it; embrace it, Virgo. It will only enhance your life. Just try very hard to strike a balance between asserting your personal power and turning into an out-of-control freak. February 5th, a New Moon Solar Eclipse enters into Capricorn, your celestial BFF. This shines a bright spotlight on your 5th house of creativity, love affairs, kids, and own inner child. Eclipses come to invite change and shake you out of stagnation. This is a good thing! Your 5th house had been uprooted for a few years now; let this eclipse, a.k.a. "mini earthquake" bust things up in the best possible way. Does your creative side need an infusion of new energy? Have you really been enjoying life lately? Are you allowing yourself play time? The big boss planets, in place for a while, want to see you become a true master in these areas of life. As a perfectionist, you may have to lighten up to make this happen! Start enjoying the creative process a bit more; get lost in silly time; don't be so hard on yourself! Consider taking a break and having some alone time too, even volunteering which brings you so much joy. Dear Virgo, February sets the stage for you to transform and prepare for an amazing year!
Libra (Sept 23- Oct 22)
Libra, you're lit! On February 1st, Mars enters your 7th house of committed relationships. Single Libras: work your swag; go text someone who ignited a spark or light it yourself. While always the charmer, Mars emboldens you further this month so just go for it. Partnered Libras (and let's face it, most of you are attached as riding solo is not your thing): Mars is pushing you to speak your truth. I say "confrontation," and you think "run". Well, not this month. If you don't express what's on your mind, your partner will. Home is also, indeed where your heart is. You may also refurbish, redecorate, and entertain from your happy abode. When you've had enough family time, work will be your savior. You can escape to the office, and even want to spend more time there. On February 21st, the last Full Moon eclipse lands in Leo. Leo is all about joy and passion for life. Wave to the family but spend time with friends toward the month's end. Party it up with your peeps. Just keep that old flame from Mars alive, dear Libra!
Scorpio (Oct 23- Nov 21)
Let go, Scorpio. It's time to grow... Your ruling planet, Mars, moves into Aries on February 1st, highlighting your 6th house of work, health, and daily routine. You are crazy driven and impatient, wanting results yesterday. I get it; but please channel your intense Scorpio energy thoughtfully and allow a little time. It will pay off. You are poised and ready to take on new projects and responsibilities. The busier, the better. So, hit the gym hard, take a circuit training, Level 2-yoga, or advanced spin class. Release the excess energy or you'll be a nervous wreck. Last month’s New Moon Solar Eclipse--think New Moon meets the Energizer Bunny--entered the sign of Capricorn, focusing on mind, attitude, and community. There has been a lineup of planets in Capricorn reworking this area of your life for a while. Add in a Solar eclipse and you can bust up old, habitual behaviors that no longer serve. Scorpio, with your analytical and penetrating mind, you have an uncanny ability to see through BS in a flash. At the same time, your constant mental chatter, the monkey mind, is too loud. Meditate. Distract. Get quiet. Put the stop sign up on negative thinking; it's so boring. Once your mind finds peace, you can achieve anything. This may sound like a talI order, but you've got it, Scorpio. In fact, you need it to move forward. Happy, evolutionary February, Scorpio!
Sagittarius (Nov 22- Dec 21)
It’s February and you’re itching for some fun, Sag! It's actually a demand from the universe to go out and play, whenever you can. Your 5th house of creativity and joy (including your own inner child), is getting an infusion of Mars energy. Indulge in this; we don't want you stuck in FOMO. Last month’s solar eclipse of the year falls into Capricorn which rules your 2nd house. This means renewed attention on self-worth, talents, and money. These areas of your life have been undergoing change for a while now. With this Eclipse, there is renewed opportunity for improvement. Capricorn is calling you to get even more disciplined. Sag, you are a natural business person even if you haven't realized it yet. Stand in your value, leverage your talents, and reach your highest potential in the work arena. Saturn will help deliver boundless rewards if you do! And while it may not come easily to you, get really focused on your finances and make sure compensation matches your worth. It's time to be fiscally responsible. Put yourself on a budget and tighten the belt. You've got 18 months to figure this out and I'm so excited for what lies ahead. Explore different philosophies, take a class, go on an exotic vacation; just learn something new!
Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)
Cheers, Cap! The universe is presenting a cornucopia of gifts to you: 5 planets aligned in your sign and 2 powerful eclipses. Seriously! 2019 is centered on you, Cappy. Saturn, the wise CEO of the zodiac, rules Capricorn, making you the big boss of the new year. All the other signs need to learn about Capricorn energy as you possess so many extraordinary qualities...oh, and a few not-so-attractive ones too. Do you want to share the strong, realistic, persistent, responsible, hard-working, humorous side? Or, show yourself as a controlling, cold, snobbish bore? Obviously choose the first one, love. This month you’re driven to get your house in order, you may start few home projects, get to it! Be careful not to get into too many arguments with family members, your patience is at an all-time low. Cap, you do not always have to be right, give in a little. The solar, new moon eclipse in Capricorn from last month has put a shining, strobe light on you! No playing the lone wolf this month; get out there; socialize and be seen. Do it in style.
Festival season is in full swing and we can’t stop thinking about what we want to pack! So we called on one of our fellow bohemian babes, Eva Catherine, to share what she’s taking with her this festival season! What are you bringing, gypsies?
