Pisces 2019 year ahead

This is a very good year personally. You are full of joy and optimism. You want to travel and explore the world. This seems like your main mission at this time. It would also be a good time to study if you so desired.
Your focus is your family and ideally you would love to travel with your family – but there seem to be some issues. Your partner appears to be uncertain and the rest of the family members may also have their doubts. Can you convince them and pull it off or will it be best to go on your own?
This is an important year financially. It is a time to be sensible and prudent financially. Think about your long term financial situation. It is important that you make sensible decisions about the value of things and what they cost. Be careful about excessive debt at this time. Make sure that if your financial situation changed at some point in the future that you would still be able to service the current debt. Be sensible about borrowing and perhaps it is time to be more prudent and cautious financially.
You are wanting some adventure – perhaps try a new sporting and or creative activity. It may not work out as you expect.
What about your children at this time? Things may be up and down and your child/children may be more challenging than normal – perhaps a bit rebellious?

Computer viruses and cryptocurrencies – 2019 and 2020

In 1981 Elk Cloner created a program called the “Elk Cloner” which was developed for the Apple II Systems. It was created to infect Apple DOS 3.3. These programs were designed to spread through files and folders that were transferred to other computers via the floppy disk.
In 1983 the term “virus” was coined by Frederick Cohen. These were defined as computer programs that were infectious as they had a tendency to replicate themselves.
During this period Saturn was conjunct Pluto – it started on 21 Jan 1982 and ended on 26 Sep 1983.
We are approaching another cycle of Saturn conjunct Pluto. This period starts from 28 Feb 2019 and ends on 24 Nov 2020. These 2 planets are exact on 12 Jan 2020.
We need to mindful of computer viruses during this period. It could very well be described as another kind of war. I wonder what the impact will be on the cryptocurrencies?

Aquarius 2019 year ahead

Your big focus at this time is your career and status in the world. This is a very good time to look at your roles and responsibilities and make changes if required. There may very well be some issues that you need to deal with and these relate to power dynamics in the work place. Some could be toxic. What must you change? Look long term at your professional goals. Don’t be afraid to make changes if necessary. You may need to let go.
Home is a very good place for you right now. You have made it feel just right. But there is tension between home, career and work. What about resources and debt? You need to set up sustainable solutions going forward. This is an important time to be sensible financially and plan for your future. Your personal financial situation may be unstable and unpredictable currently.
You are in a confident place personally. You are ready to back yourself and act. It seems like you want to travel and or study again. This is a very good time to look at both these options.
What about a relationship with someone further afield or abroad? Perhaps you connect with a foreigner? This is all very appropriate right now. What do you plan to do about this relationship? It is time to back yourself and act.

Capricorn 2019 year ahead

Your focus is your home and family. Home provides stability in your life. It is also a responsibility – family, children and the house. Perhaps it is time to teach your children more about their own roles and responsibilities. Do they understand the value of money? You have concerns about your financial situation and the family need to understand the value of things. What is important to you and your family – and what is this worth? Understanding your financial situation and your value system is important at this time. Perhaps your personal and joint financial situation is not what you desire. It is likely that your joint financial situation changes unexpectedly. How does this impact on you personally? It is an unpredictable time.

Your work and day to day routine are also a focus in terms of the structure this brings to your life. Work provides for your family. There is however some discontent with your career. You are pulled in different directions. Are you using your knowledge and experience professionally? Are you happy about where you find yourself professionally? What do you need to change?

Your relationship needs your attention and energy at this time. It is a good time to find common purpose and make sure you are on the same page in terms of schools and or neighbourly issues. This is a good time to connect with siblings and sort out any misunderstandings.

 

Sagittarius 2019 year ahead

The focus for the year ahead is your career. This period is very positive and there are many opportunities. The theme is all about growth and expansion. It is important that you learn and gather experience in your business and or professional role and enjoy the financial benefits that come your way. It seems like this is a time when luck is on your side. You create your own luck too. Money seems to come easily to you during this time but it equally indicates that you may be spending your resources as quickly as you acquire them. Make sure you are sensible when it comes to your financial situation. This is a very good time to make money – just don’t spend it all at once! It seems like the more you make the more you need. Temper your spending. Plan for your long term financial future.

Home and family life is fulfilling and heart-warming. You are very content at home. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to travel with your family? Children cost money – but are a joy!

Your relationship is an important as your career – make sure you focus as much on your partner as your career.

Excessive debt and spending crisis looming in 2019/2020

We are entering an interesting period astrologically in the next few years. Jupiter entered Sagittarius on 9 Nov 2018. It will stay in this sign for about a year until 2 Dec 2019. Jupiter loves being in Sagittarius, the sign of its rulership. The attributes attached to this combination are of optimism, adventure, travel, trade and gaining a greater knowledge and understanding of the world.

But at the same time Neptune will square Jupiter creating some confusion and deception. This phase starts on 19 Dec 2018 and ends on 19 Oct 2019. It is exact on 16 June and 21 Sep 2019. Expressed positively this will create circumstances that are naively optimistic. Opportunities to speculate and gain with little effort. There will be a sense of endless positive growth and expansion. Expressed negatively this could lead to poor speculation and mass panic as people fear losing their wealth. Circumstances are perfect for scandals to flourish – ultimately caused by an underlying instability. The analysts may have a difficult time diagnosing the real issues. It is also likely a period of extreme greed and wastefulness. This period was last active in 1936.

In early 2019 Saturn will connect with Pluto. This period is effective from 28 Feb 2019 to 24 Nov 2020. This aspect is exact on 12 Jan 2020. This is a difficult combination of 2 powerful planets. Expressed positively it describes toughness and tenacity , extreme endurance and the ability to be disciplined while working in challenging conditions. Expressed negatively it describes a cold-hearted, hard and unfeeling disposition, with a tendency towards violence and fanatical adherence to principals once adopted – no matter the outcome. This is a very self-destructive energy and could imply the loss of one’s fortune or possessions. Pluto rules death, debt and taxes. A crisis will hit those who have not managed their financial affairs appropriately and are unable to service their debt. The tax authorities may eventually catch up with those who have evaded tax for a very long time. Banks may be forced to stop lending and the cycle of spending may cease or slow down dramatically. This period was active in 1914/15 and 1946/47/48 and then again in 1982/83.

In addition Jupiter will connect with Pluto. This period is effective from 29 Feb 2020 to 11 Dec 2020. This aspect is exact on 5 April, 30 June and 12 Nov 2020. Once again this is a powerful combination. It describes an extreme desire for power. Expressed positively it describes the desire to lead the masses and the need for social and or religious regeneration. It describes the search for justice of those oppressed. The world needs a moral and social rejuvenation. Expressed negatively it describes the pursuit of fanatical gains and the desire to exploit the masses. As the saying goes ‘power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely’. This is described as a period of massive social uprisings. The loss of social status and the possibility of losing all your worldly possessions. Excessive debt. It describes conflicts with those in power. This period was active in 1918/19 and 1930/31 and 1943 and 1955/56 and 1968/69 and 1981 and 1994 and 2007/08. We know what happened to the global economy in 2008. It all started in 2007 with the subprime mortgage crisis in the US. It soon resulted in a banking crisis with the collapse of Lehman Brothers on 15 Sep 2008. Excessive risk taking by banks across the globe magnified the crisis. Massive bail-outs by governments followed to avert a full blown global financial collapse. The European debt crisis followed.

This pressure cooker situation is at its peak between 8 and 24 Nov 2020. Let us hope that the global leaders can avert a crisis and make a commitment to address the global challenges related to debt, wealth and poverty. Citizens across the world need to hold those in power to account. Corruption and excessive greed and waste need to be stopped. Money and power needs to be used appropriately for the betterment of society as a whole. A new respect for all countries and cultures needs to be cultivated. The oppression of groups of people must stop. We have an opportunity to create a better world once we have made some fundamental changes in policy and application. We need dedicated and committed leaders who respect citizens and are working towards the greater good of the world and humanity.

Mercury retrograde 17 Nov to 6 Dec 2018

Mercury once again changes direction during this period. This is a reminder to back up your phone and computer. Be mindful of any contractual agreements. Do you have all the information at hand? Part of this time Mercury will find itself in detriment in Sagittarius. It could very well behave badly! Be careful how you deliver your message – the brutal truth may be more easily misinterpreted. Travel disruptions and misunderstandings? Check travel details. Pay attention to the detail at this time generally. More likely to have car troubles? Could be an irritation more than anything else.

Scorpio 2018 year ahead

Your focus is looking at the options for your family. Where do you want to live? Here or further afield? There is some discomfort about this issue currently. There are aspects about your current home and family life that are good and then others that are more challenging. Is it time to move further afield? Make a big change. What are the prospects further from home? Will you have a future there? These are things you need to consider at this time.

Your relationship is a focus and together you will need to make decisions about your future. There is tension between wanting to explore options further afield and being connected to your local environment. What needs to change? Being connected to neighbours/siblings is important at this time. What about the school environment? Perhaps it is time to make a big change and look at a different school options? Does something change for one of your siblings and this opens up new options for you too? You seem to be pulled in different directions at the moment. Local versus abroad/looking at your options further afield.

It is important that you deal with any legal matters that require your attention when it comes to your home and family situation. There may well be some issues that need to be resolved.

You are in a good place to focus on your own direction at this time. What do you want personally and in your career? It is time to act and engage in a business that suits your personal requirements. This is an excellent time financially in business. Patience pays dividends in the end. Look long term and make good decisions about what you want in personally and in business. Use your professional network to look at opportunities at home and beyond. Your reputation is highly regarded amongst business colleagues.

Old friends provide incredible support at this time. These are the friendships that you have nurtured over time and those friends that have come a far way with you in life.

Do you want to have a child and fall pregnant? Make a plan. This is your time.

Libra 2018 year ahead

Resources are a concern and a focus at this time. There is some discomfort personally when you think about resources and your work. You are very dedicated to your job and to your daily responsibilities. But it seems like you need to consider these responsibilities and how you are rewarded financially for the work that you do. Is there something that you need to give up so that you can take on a new role/responsibility at work. Write down what is working and not working and think about your direction in life. What are you goals and aspirations? What do you need to commit to each day to make this happen?

The chart also describes a focus on relationships – personal and or business and shared financial responsibility. Are you and your partner on the same page? What changes do you need to make at home at this time? Could be a good time to move or engage with home improvements. Your family is growing – what about another child?

It seems like you are keen for an adventure but is your partner keen to join you or not?

Virgo 2018 year ahead

This is a good time to focus on your own personal requirements especially your financial situation. This is a good time for you financially. Money comes your way with relative ease. Is your career something you value and are the financial rewards worth it? It seems like your work and or your daily life is getting you down. You are working incredibly hard and your work is emotionally draining. Is your work fulfilling? What changes do you need to make day to day? It may be appropriate to change roles and look at other opportunities. The chart indicates that if your relationship with your work continues as it currently is then your overall health and well-being will be compromised. You need to learn to let go – perhaps you need to delegate more to others around you. You seem obsessed about doing everything yourself and this is really not good for you. It may be a good idea to see your GP and get an overall health check.

Perhaps the real issue is that you have no time to enjoy yourself or you are not making time for your sporting and or creative pursuits. Schedule time for these activities and make a commitment to yourself to find time to do the activities that bring you joy. As they say – all work and no play is no good at all!

It would be a great idea to plan an adventure. Do something you have always wanted or travel to an exotic destination. A little adventure would go a long way to getting your spark back.
