Eclipses in January trigger an important chapter beginning. New projects will be yours to launch as the solar eclipse peaks on January 5th. Whatever unfolds will come with increased responsibilities (new beginnings could even involve your health). Meanwhile, the lunar eclipse on January 21st occurs in your sign. This will be a humbling event that asks you to put aside ego needs as you prepare for whatever new chapter begins during the solar eclipse.
As energy from the eclipses continue to unfold throughout the spring, greater discipline and focus will be required. A steadfast approach will bring success to new endeavors, especially as you begin to run up against setbacks.
Important investments, contractual agreements, and intimate dealings undergo delays in March. Tax documents may go missing, business collaborations may need to be postponed, and romantic attachments could be derailed. As stalls develop, be prepared to cut your losses. You must exercise discernment when forging new commitments. Be mindful of where and with whom you share your resources; obstacles will resolve by April.
The rest of spring sees you focused on career aims as shake-ups and transitions bring activity. This could lead to instability on the work front; a theme that began in 2018 is starting to crystallize, encouraging you to identify your true vocation. If you have been stuck in a job that doesn’t serve you, now would be the time to make deliberate adjustments in pursuit of your right vocation. If you are already on that path, you can expect a few curve balls that lead to a greater sense of purpose.
Summer comes with two more eclipses – a solar eclipse on July 2nd bringing a new start behind the scenes, and a lunar eclipse on July 16th bringing a completion of activity in your day-to-day. These eclipses will feed one another; a project that reaches completion could lessen your load as you retreat to more spiritual aims. Or, a health matter could beg the need for you to rest and take time off.
No matter what unfolds, the summer months will be rather quiet months. An extended low energy cycle will see you in a more contemplative space. Retreat, renewal and restoration will be your priorities, especially if you are making a big personal change or considering an important decision. Indulge this cycle; you will have more energy and greater clarity once it comes to an end.
As we enter the month of September, you will feel a surge of energy. Not only will you be back in your fiery element, change will be underway. Money matters, short trips, family, and creative projects fill your days as we close out the year. While there may be delays around domestic events in November, holiday planning with relatives should be eventful. Meanwhile, romance, children, and artistic endeavors are in store as well. In fact, these themes will be in effect throughout all of 2019.
The year ends with a solar eclipse on December 26th, a belated Christmas gift. Another potent new beginning to your day-to-day is in store. But it will feel rather light and exciting as Jupiter begins its transit of Capricorn. Expect busier days as these cosmic shifts unfold; activities will be enjoyable. Whether you are developing an artistic endeavor, or busy with a new baby, all will be well.
Happy New Year, Leo!
