Pisces horoscope

Pisces Horoscope

Today 17 January 2019

General

You have your ideas and opinions on a certain matter that make sense to you. However, conveying these could be met with resistance from others when communication becomes blurry or prone to misinterpretation. You might also be aware of how what you say somehow differs from what you intended to say. The solution involves not trying so hard to achieve verbal clarity. You might be trying to say too much. Speak less, say more.

Love

If you don't consider all of the angles related to a complicated love life scenario, then you might only add to complications. It's by being honest with yourself in the first instance about your part in whatever transpires that you can take a step to improve it. The next step involves encouraging a loved one to accept what they could have done and can still do to improve matters, too. There's a lesson to be learned within this minor, temporary snafu.

Money

While Mars will leave your income sector next week, as this is on top of the ordinary activity that begins each March, whatever quests or battles you begin now, have ongoing momentum. Mars is the planet of war and as the warrior planet of the cosmos, his job is to encourage you to fight for what you deserve. The 'when, where and how' will evolve over time.

Tomorrow 18 January 2019

General

Soldiering on stoically and tackling something you're struggling to summon the energy to tackle isn't healthy, necessary or sensible. You might believe something is your responsibility to shoulder alone, but for as long as you don't ask for assistance or support, it probably won't be forthcoming. If you're aware that someone is getting off Scot-free from lending a hand where it's needed, then speak up, rather than allow resentment to fester.

Love

The road to true love might have been winding lately, but the road ahead should appear clearer and straighter now. It's important you continue looking forward rather than backward at what you feel needs readdressing, correcting – or healing. The time will come soon when you can address any outstanding issues but what's needed now is a willingness on your part to seize a chance to take positive steps forward without delays and obstacles you've grown used to recently.

Money

Just having Mars in your income sector during the first six weeks of 2019 is a huge advantage and one that will have implications throughout the coming year. Yet it is the professional support and the evolving developments on the job and career fronts that create a very real chance to smash through old barriers. Especially those that hold you back from fully fighting for what you deserve.

Weekly horoscope

General

Oh, how the world would be a better place if everyone did as they promised. However, everyone shows passion in different ways, and you could be looking for someone's enthusiasm to match your own, which cold create a false and unjustified sense of disappointment. Someone is likely more reliable than they appear to be, so try to resist forming instant – and potentially inaccurate – conclusions about their abilities or dedication. The more you show trust in them, the easier you make it for them to deliver what they promise!

Money

Starting the week with Moon in your income sector is always an advantage, giving you a sharp nose for money and a lucrative sense of direction from the get go. Yet nothing about this week is ordinary and this makes the timing of the Moon's first visit to your income sector for the year extraordinary. It is not just that this is the Moon's first visit since Mars' return on New Year's Day, but comes just as Venus, the planet of money is spending her first full week in your career sector. Venus returns to your career sector once a year and Mars to your income sector once every other year, but it has been 30 years since they were last here at the same time. With the planets of money and war aligning from Thursday and right through to next week's total lunar eclipse on the job front, of all the weeks to start with the Moon in your income sector, this is it.

Pisces horoscope for January 2019

General

You're in a superb position this month to remind or prove to others that your dreams aren't too fanciful or certain aspirations aren't figments of your imagination. A Solar Eclipse targets your hopes, dreams, and wishes on January 5 - and can turn one cherished aspiration into something real and tangible. You're creating a realistic plan to get you to where you want to be and might be fortunate to have someone on your side who can be integral to making it happen. An emphasis also exists on your finances, and with Venus influencing your career for most of January and working alongside lucky Jupiter in the same sector, you're about to feel more valued and appreciated professionally. See what transpires around January 21 and 22 where your career is concerned. You have a double helping of luck on those days in a way that could have you punching the air with delight!

Love

With a Solar Eclipse occurring on January 5, your love life won't escape its influence, even if the main focus will be on hopes, friends, and wishes. With serious Saturn involved as well, you might need to readjust, redefine or update one cherished love life aspiration and bring it in line - in a more realistic way - with your current circumstances. What – or who - might have made you swoon dreamily in the past might no longer be relevant or appropriate, and that realization is something to be grateful for. It might also become clear that your efforts to achieve a long-held romantic or relationship dream are only boosting your frustration levels. Again, you have a chance this month to decide if something – or someone – is worth the effort.

Money

In the very early hours of the month, 2019 is doing a good impression of an ordinary year, expect the disguise will slip within the early hours of the year. Ordinary for you means moving into the New Year with Uranus either in his final days in retrograde motion in your income sector or his early days in direct motion, either way barely moving. As the Sun doesn't return until March each year this gives Uranus, who has been here since 2010, plenty of time to slowly come out of hibernation. The year begins with Uranus not only in retrograde motion but at a standstill ahead of his direct turn on 7th January. While you begin the month with Jupiter and Mercury in your career sector, it is not until Venus, the planet of money returns on 8th January that the real link between income and professional opportunities will be forged. With Venus returning during Uranus' first 24 hours in direct motion, this was always going to be the point when the tide turned. Yet what you see is not what you get, with everything coming alive within hours, thanks to Mars' return to your income sector on New Year's Day. Mars does not wait for the tide to turn and spending the first six weeks of 2019 in your income sector, just for the first time in 12 years you move into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your career sector, he will be out to make it count. Venus' return to your career sector on 8th January and a total lunar eclipse in your work sector on 21st January will create an explosion of potential across the income, work and career fronts. With Uranus leaving in early March and then not returning until 2094, this was always going to be the point for putting everything you have into everything you do. The stars literally align across the income, work and career fronts this month.

Aquarius horoscope

Aquarius Horoscope

Today 17 January 2019

General

Resisting or ignoring certain responsibilities won't bring the relief you think it will. You might be inclined to let one or two slip to see who bothers to take the reins or the initiative, but it's unfair and unhelpful to test others in such a way. The reason certain responsibilities fall on your shoulders is because someone has faith in your ability to deliver. With once small attitude adjustment, you can be a shining example of effectiveness.

Love

It could be easy to ignore a certain transgression involving someone in your love life but saying nothing only sets a difficult precedent for the future. A gentle and diplomatic approach might help you to make the point, but this could be a time when brutal honesty is more effective. You owe it to yourself to not let this matter pass without making your thoughts and feelings clear.

Money

The money gods are almost acting in an undercover way at the moment. There is a lot of focus on job and career matters and with a lot of confidence, excitement and anticipation, but income matters may appear to have gone off the boil. This is far from the case, with both new and untapped income potential making the most of a chance to first get this new professional year on track.

Tomorrow 18 January 2019

General

It's important not to underestimate the influence you hold at this time. You could be unknowingly persuasive and might also be inclined to look for 'the catch' if you gain sudden support or agreement from a certain person whom you normally have to put forth a compelling argument. If there's anyone you want to gain approval from, then now is an ideal time to let your charm do half the work for you.

Love

You might be in no doubt about how you and a loved one are on opposite ends of the spectrum where your attitude toward a shared situation is concerned. There might be limits to how further discussion could help get you both of you on the same page at this time, too. If calling time out and returning to this matter at another time feels sensible, then that could reduce stress levels on both sides.

Money

Ahead of the Moon's return to your work sector tomorrow, there is a need to have your finger on the pulse and ear to the ground. This first visit for the year is also the first since Mars left your income sector and before Ceres leaves your career sector. The next few days will bring a valuable chance to get your ducks in a row across the income, work and career fronts.

Weekly horoscope

General

This week, a certain sensitive matter could encourage you to simply nod and accept it, rather than express your true feelings about it. Being seen to be supportive, even if you have reservations about doing so, is more important than drawing attention to a matter of principle that you want to bring into the open. That can happen at some point soon. For now, there's something to be learned or gained from being obliging and cooperative.

Money

Thanks to the Moon's departure from your income sector over the weekend, you begin the week with a sharp nose for money from the get go, as well as better read on where things stand. This was both the Moon's first visit for the year and the first since Mars left on New Year's Day, taking away the urgency and intensity. Yet, the Moon has revealed that will things may have moved down a gear, what you have now is steady and unsustainable momentum. Until the Sun returns next month, there is a chance to let things play and this week. This week is more chance to get your professional ducks in a row, as an alignment between forces on the job and career fronts works to give you an updated sense of direction on both fronts. There is however, reason for confidence across the income, work and career fronts. Across all fronts, there is a chance this week to regroup.

Aquarius horoscope for January 2019

General

You're not shy when it comes to speaking up and drawing attention to how something can be done in a more unusual or untraditional way. The urge to do this could intensify as your ruling planet, Uranus, starts to move forward on January 6 and affect how you think and convey yourself. Your ideas might sound far-fetched to others, but they'll make sense to you, and that's what matters. Make an effort to surround yourself with like-minded people because not only does the sky insist they can be found, but they're your ticket to turning one cherished idea into something tangible. Proof of this could arrive around January 22. On January 21, a Lunar Eclipse targets your partnerships and commitments. If there has been more taking than giving on someone's part recently, then this could be magnified but in a way that helps you take the necessary steps to redress any imbalance.

Love

This month's biggest development where affairs of the heart are concerned involves the Lunar Eclipse influencing partnerships and commitments on January 22. To say this will bring a significant shift in your love life or one special relationship is an understatement. If you're happy and loved-up with a special person, then things can intensify and move up a level, even if you felt change wasn't likely in your connection. If you're a single Water Bearer, then the Eclipse is the equivalent of a green light to either find that special someone by making yourself available to do so or for something platonic to become passionate. Either way, take one last look at your current love life circumstances because the cosmos intends to transform them during the coming weeks.

Money

While Mars will leave your income sector on New Year's Day, the very fact that you begin the year with the warrior planet of the cosmos firing up your passions and fighting spirit gives you a massive head start. Especially as Mars not only spent the final six weeks of 2018 here but surrounded by support across the income, work and career fronts. This included a Full Moon in your work sector just before Christmas and Venus, who will begin the year in your career sector. Venus returned for what should have been a 24 day visit in early December, but has stayed on keep the professional momentum going. As the planet of money, Venus' mandate here will always be to fuel your professional confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction. To have Mars in your income sector has allowed the two to work together. While Venus will leave a week after Mars, between them they are able to point your professional year in a lucrative direction from the get go. Yet the most important feature of starting the year with Mars here is the courage he gives you to fight for what you deserve.This is the last time you will begin the year with Mars and Neptune in your income sector in our lifetime and while Mars will leave in the early hours of the year, Neptune is here for the whole of 2019 and right through to 2026. If you can begin the year ready to fight for what you deserve, there is more than enough support to continue the fight. With the Sun returning to your income sector next month, there are even more developments over the coming months. Right now it is all about starting the year the way you mean to continue, which is having a dream, something to fight for and daring to believe in what you deserve. This is being backed up by forces on the job and career fronts.

Capricorn horoscope

Capricorn Horoscope

Today 17 January 2019

General

Reflecting on the past could be more of a hindrance than a help at this time. Your memory of previous events and the stressful energy attached to them might make your mental stroll down Memory Lane unpleasant. However, try to focus on how you're dealing with very different circumstances now that bear no resemblance to what you dealt with previously. If only you knew back then what you know now…

Love

A loved one could stick a spanner in the works or create unnecessary tension where a plan of yours is concerned. You want to do what's right by them but could be caught in the middle of trying to keep them – and others - happy. You're not obliged to focus your attention solely on a loved one, as selfish as that sounds. Remind them that you're doing your best to accommodate them, but a bit more flexibility and support from them wouldn't go amiss.

Money

It is the Moon's return to your work sector today that not only has the money gods taking a step back, but with confidence. The next few days are valuable chance to get your first read on work and job matters for the year and just days before the Sun's return to your income sector the timing couldn't be better.

Tomorrow 18 January 2019

General

By allowing stubbornness to subside or adopting a more relaxed attitude toward others, you can delight those who are used to seeing you so serious. It's probably not often that you allow your lighthearted side to come out to play but allowing it freedom at this time can definitely make you more approachable, sociable and lovable!

Love

If you push too hard for a love life development to happen too quickly, then you're inviting trouble and complications. Connect with your signature patience and accept that a certain development won't be rushed because love works to its rules, not yours. It's by slowing down and being more of an observer to what's unfolding now that you'll pick up a few clues regarding where your love life is heading – and possibly whom you're heading there with.

Money

With no planetary activity in either of your two professional houses to support the Sun when he returns to your income sector over the weekend, having the Moon in your work sector today becomes a lot more important. Before the solar spotlight turns onto your income situation, matters and options, this is a chance to get an intuitive read on work and job matters.

Weekly horoscope

General

This week, it might feel as if everyone has their own dramatic story to tell. Your keenness to bring a sense of logic or realism to others' worlds might not be appreciated, either. If anything, absorbing their confusing or negative energy only heightens your cautiousness or defensiveness. Leaving others to resolve their issues and focusing your efforts on creating a stronger sense of security in your world helps you to reconnect with a fresh and more open mind. You appear to have an agenda that needs and deserves your focused attention, so try not to be distracted by matters that aren't yours to resolve.

Money

This is a week that will evolve as it goes, with a need to trust where it is taking you. To start with there is no activity in either of your two money houses and no need to keep your money hat on at all. Make the most of this, for it will be a very different story next week, with a total lunar eclipse whipping up a lot of activity on the income and financial fronts. What is important is the Moon's return to your work sector on Thursday, with a chance to get your first real sense of work and job matters this year. Even the money gods will want you to keep your work hat. For while the Moon will leave your work sector on Saturday, the Sun's return to your income sector the next days will ensure you have an intuitive read on work and job matters from the get go. The Sun returns to your income sector at this time every year, but even before next week's lunar eclipse, there is a huge amount of untapped income potential from the get go.

Capricorn horoscope for January 2019

General

Are you ready to take the reins and steer your life toward a greater sense of security and fulfillment? It might sound fanciful, but that's what you're pushed to do, thanks to the Solar Eclipse in your sign on January 5. However, it will be essential to spot the powerful and far-reaching opportunities that exist within what might appear to be obstacles or hurdles. It's by releasing yourself from whatever has run its course that you can take truly fantastic strides toward a more reassuring - and financially stable - future. The financial picture is reinforced by a Lunar Eclipse on the 21st that targets money that comes from sources other than earnings - and could bring reassuring news regarding an investment, commission or windfall that helps you breathe a well-deserved sigh of relief.

Love

This month, where affairs of the heart are concerned, much of the most potent cosmic activity is happening behind the scenes. This could encourage you to step back into the shadows, away from prying eyes or, if attached, shut yourself away with the object of your affections. Privacy could become more important to you, or you might not feel ready to share any recent love life developments with the world. A powerful Solar Eclipse in your sign on January 5 involves your ruler, Saturn. You could take on a new level of commitment with a certain person, and this will bring a new level of responsibility – but one you're likely to welcome. Uncertainty is about to be removed - and replaced with something that has longevity attached to it.

Money

To start with, things are quiet on both sides of the financial fence and that is just the way you want it. The lunar nodes only wrapped up 18 month visits to your two money houses in early November and Mars only wrapped up a nearly six month visit to your income sector just nine days later. December was your first full month in nearly two years when you have been able to keep your money hat off and let things play out. More importantly, with the lunar nodes gone, so too was the financial tension that a policing of a balance between money coming in and money going out had created. The first time you will need to have your money hat on is when the Moon moves through your income sector from 7th January to 10th January. This is both the Moon's first visit for the year and last before the Sun returns on 20th January, as he does at this time every year. On face value, this is a very ordinary visit, with the Sun returning on 20th January and Mercury 24th January, for a short visit that will run its course early next month. Venus won't return until later next month, extending income opportunities out through to March. This is the bare minimum of planetary activity you will have in any year but usually, this is a cold start. Mars only left in November but after nearly six months, not the six weeks he will normally spend here. In short, there is untapped income potential for the Sun to work with, from the get go. The money gods have a wildcard to play this month and it happens during the Moon's visit to your financial sector from 21st January to 23rd January. It is the total lunar eclipse this creates on 21st January, that could be a catalyst for unexpected developments across the income and financial fronts.

Sagittarius horoscope

Sagittarius Horoscope

Today 17 January 2019

General

Although you might feel that distancing or detaching yourself from a certain tense or awkward scenario only adds to complications surrounding it, it could be a wise move on your part. There could be much to learn from being an observer, too. You're forming your own opinions of something unfolding around you involving one or two others, and you'll have your chance to offer them soon. For now, step back into the shadows.

Love

An issue might arise surrounding sharing and dependency in a love connection at this time. One of you might be more dependent on the other, and it might be time to introduce a bit more balance in your relationship. This doesn't mean withdrawing support where it's genuinely needed but if complacency has set in with regard to one of you doing most of the 'giving,' then now's the time to put things right.

Money

Mercury moves into his final week in your income sector today, giving you seven days to work with his intellectually savvy edge. In other years, this would create some urgency, with a need to start using this smart head for money to make choices, decisions and plans. Yet with so much still evolving, there is no urgency. This is the perfect time to upgrade the words you are telling yourself.

Tomorrow 18 January 2019

General

Your interactions with others can be done entirely on your terms at this time. If the idea of being sociable or wearing a smile doesn't appeal as much as enjoying your own company or immersing yourself in some rare 'you time,' then follow your own agenda. Time spent in solitude is known to coax magical things from our souls.

Love

A delightful realization or epiphany looks set to arrive with a love life matter and not before time! This could alter the course of one romantic plan, but there will be clear and undeniable benefits to this. Something connected with your love life is about to make sense or click neatly into place. Take a moment to remind yourself of the effort you've invested so far to get you to this position.

Money

While the Sun is now in his final days in your income sector and will be gone by the end of the weekend, the focus on your income situation and matters will continue throughout the coming year. With some of the most potentially lucrative weeks of 2019 not beginning until early next month, the Sun's final days are more about having a starting point.

Weekly horoscope

General

Your long-term future could receive more attention this week and so too could anyone or anything holding you back from creating a greater sense of security. However, that might be what spurs you on to move at least one ambitious plan to a new level. Whether it's an outdated mindset or an individual, something or someone has acted as an anchor or burden that coming events offer a chance to free yourself from. Advancing your goals relies on your willingness to seize an opportunity to do so.

Whether it's an outdated mindset or an individual, something or someone has acted as an anchor or burden that coming events offer a chance to free yourself from. Advancing your goals relies on your willingness to seize an opportunity to do so.

Money

The solar spotlight is literally in your income situation, matters and options this week, as the Sun moves into his final days in your income sector. Not due to leave until Sunday, this gives you the majority of the week to make the most of all that this spotlight reveals. It is Mercury's last full week that presents a problem, though the kind you want to have. For the Sun, all you have to do is keep your eyes open and observe. On the other hand, Mercury's last full week is usually more about using his smart head for money to make choices, decisions and plans, before the focus shifts off income matters. The problem is they won't shift off income matters and with Venus returning early next month, the most lucrative months of 2019 are still in front of you. You have Mercury's smart head for money to use when you need to, but with so much still evolving there is a need to keep your mind and your options open.

Sagittarius horoscope for January 2019

General

There's likely to be an unignorable theme of love and money during January, but perhaps with your finances requiring the most attention initially. A Solar Eclipse on January 5 targets your earned income, offering you a chance to initiate something leading to long-term financial growth and security. Don't ignore or dismiss as fantasies certain moneymaking ideas that demand attention. One could be a long-term revenue generator! The cosmos also appears keen to shake your emotional world or one close connection. The sky speaks of 'liberation,' and every Archer will have their own story to tell, but you're about to be granted the freedom to pursue what - or who - your heart truly desires. Whether single or attached, your romantic prospects don't simply appear promising – they appear outstanding! See what transpires when Venus and Jupiter get together in your sign on January 22.

Love

With Venus moving into your sign on January 7 until early February, your powers of attraction are boosted significantly. However, with Venus joining lucky Jupiter in your sign, your love life is about to receive one tremendous, lucky boost! If you want to see for yourself how two of the luckiest planets work together harmoniously, then see what transpires on or around January 22. If your love life has felt stagnant or dormant during recent months, then Uranus moving direct and influencing true love from January 6 will liven things up. From January 6 until March 6, affairs of the heart will be subjected to far-reaching change and a new level of realization that can make current love life circumstances unrecognizable!

Money

The focus will always be on your income situation, matters and options as you move into the New Year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of January in your income sector. However, while this is when the solar spotlight shifts onto income situation and matters, it can only reveal what is there and that's what makes this such a powerful and even game changing month. The Sun returned just before Christmas to find Saturn and Pluto still here, as they were when he left last January, but also that the South Node is making its first visit in 17 years. It is the South Node that not only provides a link to untapped income potential but will turn a very ordinary New Moon on 6th January into an extraordinary solar eclipse. This turns the New Moon that will always fall at some point during the Sun's month long visit, into a trigger to all that has been building behind the scenes, while opening new pathways. Fortunately, Mercury will return on 5th January, just a day before. This will ensure that you have the smart head for money needed to keep your head in the game, as the solar eclipse gives income matters some serious momentum. However, despite the powerful start to the year that income matters get, these aren't the most lucrative weeks of 2019. Held back by a retrograde phase in 2018 Venus, planet of money won't return to your income sector until early next month and the timing couldn't be better. Apart from Venus' ability to attract opportunities, what makes her return early next month so auspicious, is that she will return just days before Mars' return to your work sector. This month you have the momentum on the income front, but not on the job front.

Scorpio horoscope

Scorpio Horoscope

Today 17 January 2019

General

Confusing or disruptive energy you've experienced recently should be waning. This should also help you to give undivided attention to whatever or whoever needs it. However, it's equally important that you set aside some time to pamper yourself. If it has been some time since you indulged in a bit – or a lot – of self-care and self-love, then make that a priority now.

Love

When tense emotions or even resentment start to filter into your love life, it's time to be honest about why you allow them to have the influence they do. If what you're experiencing is defensive or angry, then they make achieving the harmony you want much more difficult to find. Rise above what – or possibly who – is determined to bring you down. Patience and some well-deserved self-love are your tickets to bringing the peace you need.

Money

The Moon not only returns for its first visit to your financial sector for the year today but into the firing line of both planets in your income sector. That clash won't happen until tomorrow, giving the Moon time to fuel your financial instincts and imagination, allowing you to use this as motivation on both fronts.

Tomorrow 18 January 2019

General

You could feel as if all eyes are upon you in more than one way, or as if you're being scrutinized unfairly. Fortunately, your obligation to others extends only to listening to their observations or criticisms and then merrily go your own way. Don't waste time or energy trying to defend a decision, action or situation. Allow doubters or gossipmongers to pick on someone else.

Love

Being aware that you have more work to do to achieve a certain romantic or relationship goal shouldn't cause you to feel deflated. If anything, you look set to be spurred on to summon that tiny bit more effort needed and doing so could take you one big, reassuring step closer to where you want to be – or closer to who you want to be closer to! Welcome any distraction or delay because they help you to refocus on a love life goal that is urging you to keep the faith.

Money

The Moon's first visit to your financial sector for the year comes with perfect timing. Not despite the fact that this might create some financial tension today, but because it might. An opposition with Venus and Jupiter in your income sector was inevitable, but it comes just as an alignment of income and job forces can turn this into motivation.

Weekly horoscope

General

Even if you feel especially keen to speak your mind or make certain needs clear to a certain person, you could find the process to be unnecessarily and frustratingly complex. This might not be helped by the fact that you know what you want to say but what emerges could be something altogether different. If you struggle to make sense of your own emotions, then understanding someone else's becomes trickier. The solution might involve getting to grips with what has changed in your world, especially where one close relationship is concerned. You need to be certain about what you truly feel before releasing anything.

Money

This is the week that things become a lot more exciting across the income and job fronts. While Jupiter returned to your income sector in November and Mars returned to your work sector on New Year's Day, it is only now that the conditions become ideal and start to merge on both fronts. As Uranus and Eris spend their first full week in direct motion in your work sector, it is only now that work and job matters have the green light. Starting the week with the Moon here, is the jump start this new professional year needs. This comes just as Venus, the planet of money is spending her first full week in your income sector. Moving towards an alignment with Jupiter early next week, just in time for a total lunar eclipse in your career sector, Venus also reaches out to Mars this week. It is their alignment from Thursday through to early next week, brings income and job matters onto the same track.

Scorpio horoscope for January 2019

General

As 2019 commences, you might feel you've had enough of being an observer or have taken enough of an interest in others' lives and want to start putting yours on more stable foundations. A Solar Eclipse on January 5 could remove uncertainty about what you can and should be doing to feel more fulfilled, and the universe seems keen to help with career-related progress that might mark the start of you feeling more valued. Be prepared for the unexpected where this is concerned, as something on the work front could occur that you didn't see coming and will need to think on your feet to benefit from. It's time others sat up and took notice of your achievements and capabilities – and wherever success is, money is rarely far behind!

Love

A theme surrounding love and money will be prevalent in your emotional world or within one, special connection this month. Much would be simple and straightforward if your judgment surrounding both wasn't slightly skewed. This can make your goodwill or generosity prone to being taken advantage of, or you believing promises made by someone who tells you what you want to hear while having a different agenda. It will be up to you to keep a close and realistic eye on the levels of giving and taking in your emotional world. If you're attached, then, of course, you want to support the object of your affections but might need to be prepared to put your foot down if money starts to become an issue between you. If you're single and dating, then this is a month to avoid setting a precedent regarding forking out for every treat and pleasure.

Money

For the first time in 12 years, you move into the New Year with lucky Jupiter in your income sector. Yet while the planet of luck and expansion has been here since November, Mercury has been here for the majority of that time and the Sun has been and gone, you are yet to access the full potential. Mercury, who returned in late October for what should have been a 14 to 15 day visit aimed at giving you the smart head for money needed to get your head in the game, will leave on 5th January. This allows you to start the year with Jupiter's high hopes, but Mercury's ability to keep your feet on the ground. However, something is stirring that suggests things are about to start coming together in a stunning way. It begins with Mars' return to your work sector on New Year's Day. Until now, while you have had Jupiter in your income sector, with both planets in your work sector in retrograde motion, even if the money gods were ready, the professional gods had the brakes on. With Mars returning to your work sector on New Year's Day, Uranus turning direct there on 7th January and Eris on 11th January, the brakes will come off, just as the pace picks up. It is Venus return on 8th January that will set everything in motion. This will bring the planets of money and luck together in your income sector, for the first time in 12 years. Their alignment on 22nd/23rd January will create some seriously auspicious conditions for income matters, just a day after a total lunar eclipse in your career sector on 21st January. Having Jupiter in your income sector is one thing, but this month is set to witness an explosion of potential across the income, work and career fronts.

Libra Horoscope

Today 17 January 2019

General

You might surprise yourself at your ability to summon restraint now or shortly. You're right to accept that there's no need to overreact to certain development. Facing it, rising to the challenge it offers and being determined to put it to rest quickly will ensure that you do. Don't overlook the way one or two others might be watching to see how you deal with this matter, either.

Love

You might feel all is manageable and controllable in your emotional world or within one special connection, but the cosmos could throw a curve ball that requires you to take unexpected action. A recent development that you might have seen as insignificant could rear its head and reveal itself to be more important or far-reaching than you thought. Fortunately, you're superbly placed to spot the opportunity this presents and set your love life trajectory back on course – but in a potentially new and intriguing way.

Money

During the Moon's final hours in your financial sector, an opposition with the last remaining planet in your income sector might create some financial tension or push some buttons. However, the timing couldn't be better, with the Moon delivering the right push at the right time. This can easily be channelled into motivation on both fronts.

Tomorrow 18 January 2019

General

Your innate ability to bring harmony to your and others' worlds could be tested at this time. You could be reminded of the old saying about being unable to please all people, all the time, too. If someone fails to appreciate your efforts or rubs you up the wrong way today, simply smile, count to ten and walk away. That's a perfect strategy if you really want to annoy them.

Love

The more you resist the need to make yourself vulnerable with a certain person, the more you'll delay a potentially magical and immensely heartwarming development. That's the message from the sky to you now, and it's important you don't focus on a negative outcome. If you want to form or strengthen one special connection, then being authentic with your message of love and entering into one conversation with an open mind and heart is the way to go.

Money

When the Moon left your financial sector yesterday, wrapping up its first visit for the year, left behind were valuable clues, hunches and insights that you might not be ready to process. At a time when the focus is still on income matters, let your financial instincts and imagination run their course, letting insight and answers reveal themselves in their own time.

Weekly horoscope

General

Your desire to interact and share ideas could be enhanced this week, especially if you find yourself surrounded by like-minded people. In fact, there are benefits to sharing certain aspirations or ambitions because doing so could give you an extra boost to ensure you take steps to achieve them. Your enthusiasm probably isn't in question but how you intend to put certain plans in place could be met with confusion or possibly wariness if you omit essential information. Nonetheless, revealing your grand plans takes you one important step closer to making them real, even if it helps you to visualize them more clearly.

Money

The is a radical shift in focus this year. Last year's focus and 2017 to a large extent has been on money coming in, whereas this year the focus will shift more to your financial situation and money matters as a whole. This week we see the first signs of that transition, as the Moon makes its first visit to your financial sector for the year, during Ceres' last full week in your income sector. When Ceres leaves next week, this will bring continuous planetary activity in your income sector that began in October 2017 to a close. However, not before leaving you with the momentum that will continue to guide and attract income opportunities. Ceres will spend the majority of the week aligned with the North Node in your career sector. Job and career matters will continue to evolve, so this is a chance to give this professional year a lucrative sense of direction. In the meantime, the Moon's return to your financial sector midweek is a chance to start looking ahead.

Libra horoscope for January 2019

General

The month commences with a Solar Eclipse targeting your emotional foundations and roots on January 5. Creating a long-term strategy to build a more stable foundation for you and your family could be increasingly important. For many Librans, a significant change within or to your home could be on the cards, but it's also possible that your personal and emotional stability need attention and you have a chance to regain control of your life - in no uncertain terms! A series of short, sharp shocks could also be felt where one close relationship is concerned. However, this is the universe's way of reminding you that focusing on someone else's needs mustn't be done so intently that you overlook, ignore or compromise your own.

Love

Yes, your emotional world could get shaken and stirred this month as Uranus, the planet of change and upheaval awakens from a six-month slumber and influences partnerships and commitments on January 6. This is bound to create uncertainty and possibly bring its share of drama, but also brings an awakening or epiphany regarding where you stand with a loved one. There's bound to be something liberating about this and from January 6 until March 6, it's as if Uranus is like a huge cosmic hand, knocking one obstacle after another out of the way to help you feel more stable and fulfilled. You might become aware of how deep one relationship comfort zone had become, and the change coming your way is bound to be one you'll be grateful for.

Money

While you begin the month with planets in your income and financial sectors, both the weight and the urgency is on the income front. This is less a case of Juno, in her early weeks in direct motion in your financial sector being polite and waiting her turn and more a case of the more powerful and urgent forces in play in your income sector demanding their turn. You not only begin the month with Venus and Ceres in your income sector, but the Moon as well. This will ensure you begin the year with a sharp nose for money, a lucrative sense of direction and the right amount of momentum and motivation from the get go. Ceres and Venus are the planets charged with bringing 15 months of planetary activity home and making sure all the potential from Jupiter's 13 month visit is exploited. Jupiter left in November, but Venus and Ceres continue to give you access to untapped potential and a lucrative sense of direction. It is the latter that is the most important, for the year begins with a lot of momentum and a head start on both the job and career fronts. Venus, the planet of money will leave your income sector on 8th January and Ceres on 26th January, finally bringing all planetary activity here to a close, until later in the year. By the end of the month tiny Juno will be the only planet in either of your two money houses, but not for long. With Mars returning next month and Uranus in early December, the money gods are getting ready to shift all their focus onto your financial situation and money matters as a whole. This makes January an even more important month for locking a lucrative sense of direction into place, steering this professional year in a lucrative direction from the get go.

Virgo horoscope

Virgo Horoscope

Today 17 January 2019

General

You might have a long list of pursuits you'd rather focus your attention on today, but you can't ignore the call of duty when it demands you heed it. Although you might find the mundane tasks that demand attention to be annoying distractions, be assured that fulfilling obligations in the real world will ensure you can give some guilt-free attention to what really inspires you later on.

Love

It's unfair to believe that embracing a new chapter in your love life means you'll have a copious amount of upheaval to deal with. You might believe it's better to keep the peace and leave something as it is rather than take a necessary step to ring the change you know, in your heart, is needed. Fortunately, you don't need to rush anything. Remember that all positive change is gradual and even one small step in the right direction puts you on the proper path to achieve your passionate potential.

Money

Today marks the start of a special alignment between Venus and Mars, which could fire up your financial confidence and add even more fuel to your financial passions and fighting spirit. Especially when it comes to financial matters on the home, family and/or property fronts. When the planets of money and war join forces, anything is possible.

Tomorrow 18 January 2019

General

You're aware of where certain limitations or shortfalls exist regarding your abilities or knowledge but aren't obliged to draw attention to these at this time. It appears that someone is particularly keen to focus on what you can do, rather than what you can't. Honesty is the best policy when trying to gain someone's approval or support and if a gap exists regarding what someone needs you to learn or get to grips with, then make clear that you're a quick learner!

Love

A love life matter might feel particularly delicate at this time, so be prepared to handle it with care. Maintaining a positive attitude will get you through the other side of any tension between you and the object of your affections, and the more upbeat you can be, the more they'll be inclined to take a leaf from your book. With both of you on the same page and in the right place mentally, this matter can be nipped in the bud and resolved swiftly and easily.

Money

As things get ready to move on the job front, the Moon is playing an important role before and after his return. Today the Moon is helping out by fuelling your professional instincts and imagination, while next week its first visit to your income sector for the year will sharpen your nose for money. This comes as Mars and Venus, the planets of passion and money, are fuelling your financial confidence, passions and fighting spirit.

Weekly horoscope

General

You appear to be in a preparation stage for one cherished aspiration and possibly at the mercy of others who need to fulfill their obligations before you can proceed properly. However, even if essential information or facts rely on others to provide either or both, you could experience an influx of information coming at you in other ways. Fortunately, you're not obliged to make sense of it all, especially if it concerns others. You have set your plan in motion. Try to be patient with anyone who seems to be taking a bit too long to treat it as the priority you do.

Money

Starting the week with the Moon in your financial sector is always an advantage, allowing you to start the week with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go. Even more so as this is not just the Moon's first visit for the year, but the first since Mars returned on New Year's Day. The Moon returned over the weekend, so you begin the week with your financial instincts, imagination, passions and fighting spirit fuelled from the get go. Yet what makes this even more extraordinary, is that this is the week where an alignment between Mars and Venus, the planet of money is already making this an auspicious week for financial matters in general, but on the home front specifically. The Moon will be gone by Tuesday, just as Mars moves into his final month. This is the point where this new financial year beings, with a chance to really financial power back.

Virgo horoscope for January 2019

General

A powerful Solar Eclipse on January 5 influences true love and brings a significant shift in your emotional world. The cosmos appears keen to bring a tremendous sense of warmth and reassurance to your love life and instill a greater sense of 'belonging' where your connection with a certain person is concerned. Whether single or attached, you could end the month feeling one connection is the stuff soul mates are made of. You're also blessed with plenty of delightful Venus magic where your home and family are concerned from January 7 until early February. Something connected with your abode or a family member looks set to be a tremendous source of comfort, relief – or luck – around January 22, too!

Love

You're in an amazing position this month where affairs of the heart are concerned to benefit from magic the cosmos is determined to work on your behalf. Whether single or attached, it's as if the universe wants to transform your love life or help with forming or strengthening one special connection. Single Virgos could meet their soul mate – if defensive barriers are dropped to make it possible. Attached Virgos could find a relationship deepens in a surprising, unexpected way. The Solar Eclipse influencing true love on January 5 is the catalyst for this cosmic change. With Saturn involved as well, what unfolds during the coming weeks is undeniably powerful - and far-reaching.

Money

The whole dynamics of your financial game are set to change dramatically in the early hours of the year, so much so that it may be akin to a light switch being flicked on. You may have celebrated New Year's Eve with no intention of taking your financial power back or even paying too much attention to money matters, only to find that this changes dramatically within hours of 2019. When it comes to your financial situation and money matters, your 2019 financial year couldn't be more different to 2018. So what can change things so dramatically? The trigger is Mars' return to your financial sector on New Year's Day, but it comes at a time when money matters are already at a tipping point. It is a case of the right planet returning at the right time. Mars returns to fire up your financial passions and fighting spirit, for the first time since 2016 and here until 15th February, he is the one planet that can not only help you take your financial power back, but can convince you that you not only want to, but you can. Mars returns just six days before Uranus' direct turn here on 7th January, bringing his last retrograde phase here for another eight decades to a close. Uranus returned in 2010 to help you find your authentic financial path forward and due to leave in early March, not to return again until 2094, he's ready to make things happen. As Uranus and Mars team up, this not only creates an explosion of financial potential but the means to take your financial power back. The Moon's return from 12th January to 15th January will provide more insight. In the meantime, the Moon's visit to your income sector from 25th January to 27th January will ensure your nose for money is sharp during the Sun's early days in your work sector.

Leo horoscope

Leo Horoscope

Today 17 January 2019

General

Your keenness to be unusual or unorthodox might only serve to push away those whose support you need. However, your desire to stand out from the crowd or prove that you're not willing to play 'follow the leader' might cause you to be unconcerned if others don't connect with your thinking or approach. If you have to achieve something solo, then so be it.

Love

Your keenness to bring calmness to your emotional world is understandable but somewhere within the chaos is a truth that needs to be faced and accepted. You'll need to be willing to rise to a challenge and not let fear keep you from moving a romantic connection forward in a way it needs to now. This is your chance to create the future your heart urges you to take a step toward. Seize this chance.

Money

Until the Sun returns to your financial sector in February each year, January is a month when you are able to get your bearings. This is still the case this year, but as Mars only wrapped up a six week visit to your financial sector on New Year's Day, as you wait for the solar spotlight to shift onto your financial situation and money matters, you already have a massive head start.

Tomorrow 18 January 2019

General

You might see various loose ends that need to be tied as the week draws to a close. Certain tasks that you put off due to not having the energy to tackle them earlier in the week could demand attention, but it might be the way you resolve tension between you and a certain person that brings the greatest sense of achievement.

Love

Connecting with your playful side and allowing it to come out and play could be what's needed in your emotional world or a special connection. Apply your unique brand of frivolity to create a sexy, lighthearted vibe that can banish any blues and turn a loved one's frown upside down. You have a deep well of creativity you can draw from to inject some sexy spontaneity into your love life, so make a concerted effort to do so.

Money

While we are several weeks into the year and Mars left your financial sector on New Year's Day, you will never be as close as you are right now to experiencing starting the year with your financial dreams and passions on the same page. Forget any financial resolutions you may have made and look back at the wish list you moved into the year with. If you didn't, it is never too late.

Weekly horoscope

General

If only there were some way you could bottle the influx of creative ideas coming your way this week! Inspiration could come so thick and fast that you could struggle to convey your visions properly. However, what you can contribute is worth hearing and stating slowly and coherently. You could also find yourself sought after for advice by a certain person, and offer insight or solution that makes them glad to have you on their side.

Money

The intensity and any urgency might have dialled back since Mars left your financial sector on New Year's Day, but the timing couldn't be better. Mars had not only spent the last six weeks of 2018 firing up your financial passions and fighting spirit, but as first Neptune and then Chiron turned direct, pushed money matters that were stuck and stalled. With the Sun returning next month, there is a chance now to let things settle. The Moon only left your financial sector over the weekend, allowing you to begin the week with your financial instincts and imagination fuelled from the get go. This first visit for the year and since Mars left was a chance to regroup, coming down from the hype and intensity of the final two months of 2018. This gives you time to unwrap and process the valuable clues, hunches and insights the Moon has left you with. More importantly, this is a chance to reset your focus to this new financial year.

Leo horoscope for January 2019

General

At a time when millions of people are dropping hints about how they intend to improve themselves in some way, you look set to prove how serious you are about a new health or fitness regime. A change you're keen to make to your daily routine or banishing a bad habit or two will be a plan you'll likely stick with - and it will bring impressive results! You're blessed with the same cosmic support if you want the new year to mark the start of a new career, and effort made to job hunt after January 5 could land you something that will surprise and delight you. The month ends with a Lunar Eclipse in your sign on January 21. This will bring some essential pieces of the puzzle needed for you to feel more fulfilled – personally and emotionally.

Love

If you've wanted to feel more loved, appreciated or even lusted after, then the cosmos appears keen to assist. You'll have loved-up Venus and lucky Jupiter influencing true love from January 7 until early February, and January 22 is a magical date if ever there was one! If you're a single Leo, a very special relationship could commence around that time. If you're spoken for, then you could be delightfully aware of how a loved one makes you feel more adored, appreciated or cherished. A Lunar Eclipse in your sign on January 21 won't go unnoticed and marks the start of a new beginning in any area of your world where you want to experience one. If your wish is loved-related, then be careful what you wish for!

Money

While you start the year with a lot of focus on money matters, this will settle back, but not before giving you a huge amount of momentum and motivation. Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos has spent the last six weeks of 2018 in your financial sector and while he will leave on New Year's Day, he will allow you to hit the ground running from the get go. This is also the last time in our lifetime, that the year begins with Mars and Neptune, the planets of passion and dreams in your financial sector. They will meet up again in 2020, but not over the New Year and that is critical. This allows you to start the year with your financial dreams, passions and fighting spirit not only fuelled from the get go but aligned. Mars' departure will be a chance to pull back and ahead of the Sun's return next month, regroup. Chiron only turned direct in your financial sector in December and Neptune in late November, so they never intended to approach money matters in the fast and furious way that Mars does. Mars' departure will leave you motivated, but with a chance to pull back. The Moon's return to your financial sector from 10th January to 12th January will be a chance to regroup. In the meantime, with no planetary activity in your income sector, the Moon's return from 23rd January to 25th January is a valuable chance to gain an intuitive read on income matters. The Moon spent Christmas in your income sector, so this will be a chance to revisit some of the ideas this may have triggered over the holiday period. With February a massive month for job and career developments, the timing couldn't be better.

Cancer horoscope

Cancer Horoscope

Today 17 January 2019

General

The situation surrounding personal relationships or one, in particular, could feel more manageable at this time. This might be due to you sensing clearly a step you need to take and having justified reasons for taking it. You're about to gain control of a situation involving a certain person that you've had no choice other than to accept. However, don't overlook how patience on your part has put you in the stronger position you're in now.

Love

You might feel inclined to reassess your reasons for clinging to an outdated belief where affairs of the heart are concerned. What might have worked or been appropriate in the past might no longer suit your emotional needs now. Your romantic world is evolving and demanding you evolve with it. Your needs and desires are updating themselves, and this is to be embraced and welcomed, not resented or feared.

Money

Before the Sun even returns to your financial sector over the weekend or a lunar eclipse in your income sector a day later, on both fronts you have a head start. With so much invested and so much untapped potential on both fronts, this is more a chance for the money gods to balance the books from last year. In the lead up to both, continue to trust both your instincts and your intuition.

Tomorrow 18 January 2019

General

We live in a world full of standard responses – if, in fact, certain companies or individuals bother to respond at all. It can be easy to hide behind electronic barriers these days, and anyone who offers a personal touch when responding can stand out a mile. Be that person today. You're helped to not only know how to respond to someone but to also convey your message in a way that soothes or comforts.

Love

The idea of taking a passionate risk might be as daunting as it is exciting, but you have an unignorable desire to keep things fresh in your love life at this time. You know, in your heart, what needs to shift in one, special connection and if you need to make the first move to bring the change, then that's a challenge you're probably prepared to accept. Push aside any memories of having done so in the past and regretted it. We regret more what we don't do, and that's something to remember now.

Money

While a total lunar eclipse in your income sector early next week has the potential to trigger unexpected income developments, it is the professional framework that creates the real potential. An alignment between Venus and Mars is firing up a new sense of what's possible on the job and career fronts, with the more you can nurture this the better.

Weekly horoscope

General

You could feel exceptionally keen to speak your mind in some way this week. Although you might have someone's best interests in mind, you could be unconcerned about creating tension or conflict by making your point. This is a sure-fire way to boost someone's defensiveness levels. Be honest about your feelings but do so in a way that makes clear that you're trying to be supportive, not critical or demanding, Compromise is possible but only if you don't cause someone to see you as interfering or unsupportive.

Money

This is not a particularly active week for money matters and in fact, for the majority of the week even the money gods will ask you to keep your money hat off. Yet it is in the final hours of the week that everything changes. It will begin with the Sun's return to your financial sector on Sunday, turning the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters, as it does at this time every year. It is what happens next that is the game changer. What happens next is the Moon's return to your income sector on Monday and the total lunar eclipse this will create. Last year created so much untapped financial and income potential that this could be a catalyst for a major breakthrough on both fronts. The professional gods are definitely preparing for that, with major forces on the job and career fronts working together as a team. So much so that this week is more about having your work and professional hats on.

Cancer horoscope for January 2019

General

A partnership or love relationship receives considerable focus as the month commences, due to a powerful Solar Eclipse on January 5. What gets put in place or agreed between you and a certain person has 'long-term' written all over it. If you've wanted this connection to deepen or become formalized, then you could feel reassured and delighted with what transpires. Your career also receives considerable focus during the coming weeks, and you might need to think on your feet when an unexpected development occurs on or around January 6. However, see this is a chance to get your career trajectory back on course. Yes, you might need to remove yourself from a comfort zone, but the reward for doing so will be too strong to ignore.

Love

This could be a month when you decide to remove all that's superfluous in your emotional world or one special connection and focus solely on what's real, tangible and likely to make your heart feel more fulfilled. You might sense you've nurtured one or two romantic or relationship dreams for long enough and want to get to the nitty-gritty of where your love life is heading or where you truly stand with someone. The Solar Eclipse on January 5 reinforces this attitude or approach as it targets commitments and urges you to put something in place that has 'long-term' and 'stable' written all over it. Somehow, somewhere, a deeper level of commitment is on offer. With Mercury about to join the party, communication between you and someone can deepen, become more meaningful or result in a long-term commitment of some kind, too.

Money

Things might be fairly quiet on both sides of the financial fence as you move into the New Year, but don't be deceived, there is something game changing just waiting for the right trigger. Especially on the income front, with January having the potential to be a lucrative month, in an unexpected and potentially game changing way. This is partly because of a total lunar eclipse in your income sector on 21st January and all the untapped income potential building over the last two years this is able to draw on, but mainly because of what is happening professionally. The lunar eclipse might be the trigger, but it is the professional momentum you are able to gain in the first three weeks of the year that has the potential to completely smash some glass ceilings. This makes it important to start the month with your work and professional hats, rather than your money hat on. For the first time in 12 years, you begin the year with lucky Jupiter in your work sector and with Mars returning to your career sector on New Year's Day, your professional year is off to an impassioned and empowered start. The real advantage is Venus' return to your work sector on 8th January and her position here during the lunar eclipse in your income sector on 21st January. As the planet of money, Venus returns to fuel your job confidence, attract opportunities and steer things in a lucrative direction anyway. She will be on hand to exploit the income potential this creates, while Jupiter and Mars will be on hand to ensure job and career matters are there to catch the ball and run with it. This lunar eclipse is only possible because of the Sun's return to your financial sector on 20th January, turning the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters. If a clash creates some financial tension, it won't take much to turn this into motivation.

Gemini horoscope

Gemini Horoscope

Today 17 January 2019

General

You might feel extra sensitive but unable to pinpoint the reason. It can be easy to focus on an area of your world where results arrive in dribs and drabs rather than at the pace you hoped they would, but to become deflated about progress at this stage is premature and unhealthy. Any negativity will be short-lived, and a positive outlook will soon return with a little bit of patience on your part.

Love

You might have grown used to seeing one romantic or relationship arrangement in a particular way, and it might be time to do a bit of 'out of the box' thinking. Keeping the peace or opting to leave something as it is might no longer be an option, either. Be honest about the extent to which your needs are considered in the way something is currently. You might see how a current scenario benefits someone else more than it benefits you.

Money

The last full day of an alignment between income and work forces has the potential to turn any work tension and job pressure into motivation. This Rumpelstiltskin effect is coming from the Moon putting pressure on work forces, just as a boost in confidence and support on the income and job fronts is able to spin this into pure gold.

Tomorrow 18 January 2019

General

The Moon in your sign could enhance your determination but also boost your stubbornness. This might be particularly evident if you feel the need to stand your ground or refuse to take 'no' for an answer. However, this same cosmic energy could also push you to take a risk that you've resisted taking due to a lack of confidence. Close your eyes, count to ten and take a bold step!

Love

To make delightful strides in your emotional world, you and the object of your affections will need to remove yourselves from a certain comfort zone. However, it might be you who's pushing for a dramatic change while a loved one clings to what's familiar. What matters most is that you and your sweetheart are committed to introducing a change where one is needed, and if it needs to be introduced more slowly than you'd like, then you might need to live with that.

Money

The Moon isn't just drawing closer to its first visit to your income sector for the year tomorrow, but from finally coming full circle from a Full Moon just before Christmas. This was literally last year, with much of what was triggered then forgotten. Forgotten by you that is, not by the Moon, the money gods or the things triggered. This creates the potential for some unexpected or serendipitous moments over the weekend.

Money

In a week where the overwhelming focus is on your financial situation and money matters as a whole, the money gods will employ some crafty means to ensure income matters are just as well represented. The more obvious way is through the Moon's return to your income sector over the weekend. This first visit for the year will also see the Moon come full circle from last month's lunar eclipse, something which always has the power to trigger unexpected developments. In the lead up to this the North Node, which will spend the whole year in your income sector, will spend the majority of the week aligned with Ceres, in her last full week in your work sector. The Sun will leave your financial sector on Sunday, before the Moon can move into opposition and create a second Full Moon. An opposition with the other forces there might create some financial tension, but also a lot of motivation.

Gemini horoscope for January 2019

General

The month kicks off with a powerful Solar Eclipse on January 5, and this can be integral to you putting one relationship or commitment on a firmer, stronger footing. However, don't let money matters or financial issues be the focal point of discussions because you and a certain person can enjoy many benefits of teaming up or collaborating in a new way. An arrangement might have worked well until now, but it needs to shift to a new, more productive level. Be willing to embrace with a very open mind the ways that you and a certain person can strengthen your long-term security – and embark upon a shared plan that will blossom wonderfully during coming months.

Love

The cosmos is determined to bring a delightful wave of comfort and reassurance to your love life or one special connection as 2019 gets underway. Lucky Jupiter is already working its magic where partnerships are concerned. With Venus about to bring an extra level of magic to the same area until early February, coming weeks are bound to be memorable and heartwarming. Romance and commitments are blessed by this cosmic collaboration and if you want proof of what Jupiter and Venus can do when they work together harmoniously, then see what transpires on or around January 22. This really is the stuff dreams are made of.

Money

For better or worse, the focus will always be on money matters at the start of each year, due to the fact that the Sun will always spend the first three weeks of January in your financial sector. While the Sun will always turn the solar spotlight onto your financial situation and money matters at this time of year, with Pluto here since 2008 and Saturn since December 2017, this has also become a chance to check in on the powerful forces in play behind the scenes. Things became more complicated when the lunar nodes returned to your two money houses in November. While the Full Moon in your income sector just before Christmas didn't create a solar eclipse, with the North Node there, this has energised things across the income, work and career fronts. While Mars will leave your career sector on New Year's Day and Venus a week later, they leave behind forces energised by both the North Node's lucrative sense of direction and the momentum this has created. The only reason the Full Moon just before Christmas wasn't a lunar eclipse, was that the distance between the Moon and North Node was too great to cast a shadow. However, it had all the power and the ongoing implications of a lunar eclipse. However, that is not the case with a New Moon in your financial sector on 6th January, which will be a solar eclipse. With Saturn giving you the power to move mountains if you have to, Pluto the ability to change things up, the Sun plenty of transparency and even Mercury and his smart head for money on board, this is a chance for major new beginnings. Mercury only returns on 5th January, so returns just in time to ensure you have your head in the game. This is the point where you can really take your financial power back, using the momentum this solar eclipse will create.
