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.
