2019 gets off to the best possible start for you, so much so that this will not be a case of one year slipping unchanged into the next. The difference between 2018 and 2019 is so stark, that for the first time in a long time this will feel like a real change. You can thank Mars, warrior planet of the cosmos and your ruling planet for that, with his return to Aries on New Year’s Day a game changer. Mars spent the last six weeks of 2018 in a nostalgic, reflective but also intuitive and imaginative part of your chart, winding down a nearly two year long Mars cycle. This is a time when you are often running on empty, creating a situation where you may have run out of fuel long before you ran out of year. Mars’ return to Aries on New Year’s Day will see your tanks filled and your energy levels restocked, within hours of moving into the New Year and this is no blimp. With Mars here for the first six weeks of 2019, this gets the year off to an impassioned start, but also one where you’re ready to take your power back from the get go. This gives you the confidence to do things your way. With the year getting off to a powerful start professionally, this allows you to channel Mars’ influence into firing up your professional passions, fighting and competitive spirit. Yet for the first time in 12 years, you not only start the year with Jupiter in an adventurous part of your chart, but with the planet of luck and expansion here for all but the final weeks of 2019. With a total lunar eclipse in a playful part of your chart on 21st January, Mars will also fuel a passion for adventure, along with your romantic and creative passions.
