People love to complain about and blame all their problems on retrogrades—and 2018 was the year of retrogrades! But the start of 2019 (at least, after January 6, when Uranus ends its retrograde) is retrograde-free and full steam ahead! Will life actually be any easier? Though 2018 was generally a garbage year, 2019 will find us learning whether or not our wildest fantasies will manifest. Were those dreams realistic or delusional? Dreams die and dreams are made this upcoming year—how will things work out for your sign? Find out below:
Sagittarius (November 21 - December 21)
Love: Unexpected shifts take place in 2019 that will bring fantastic opportunities to deepen your romantic relationships on an intense, emotional level.
Money: Unfortunately, Sag, money doesn’t flow freely this year and your budget is tight. However, you may make some very savvy investments in 2019, which—along with hard work—will pay off in the long haul!
Spirit: You’ve done a ton of transformational soul work in 2018, and now it’s time to come out of your shell and re-introduce yourself to the world!
Capricorn (December 21 - January 19)
Love: It’s now or never, Capricorn! You’re reaching a tipping point, and timing plays a crucial role in your life in 2019.
Money: 2019 is not your year for wild spending, Capricorn—serious Saturn is in your sign, urging you to be mature and responsible. That said, your hard work will finally pay off!
Spirit: You’re someone who tends to busy themselves with work, Capricorn, but in 2019, your focus will shift to more spiritual concepts. Doing work to understand your dreams and develop your intuition will be majorly beneficial to you this year. Catching up on sleep isn’t a bad idea, either!
Aquarius (January 19 - February 18)
Love: On the romantic front, 2018 felt absolutely lovely to you—but in 2019, things will be moving much more quickly! Big changes occur in your love life this year; whether that’s good or bad will depend on how you ready you are for love.
Money: You’ve been fantasizing about having millions of dollars in your bank account, and tend to believe that if you can imagine it, you can make it happen. But this year, it’s time to get real and practical about your spending, because if you don’t, 2019 will find you severely disappointed by your inability to create money from thin air.
Spirit: For someone who claims they’re always down to try something new, you can be pretty inflexible, Aquarius. This year, you’ll learn more about the ways you self-sabotage by adhering to rigid ideals.
Pisces (February 18 - March 20)
Love: You’re stereotyped as the hopeless romantic of the zodiac, Pisces, but your definitions of fun and romance began to shift in 2018. In 2019, you’ll be evolving as well, and your entire love life will experience an ideological shift that you must shape to benefit you.
Money: Sorry to read you, but you’re terrible with your finances, dear fish. This upcoming year urges you to get your shit together—you’ll need to consciously plan a budget and avoid impulse buys, or your spending will definitely come back to bite you. On the bright side, this year is a fabulous one for your career!
Spirit: You’re an emotional person, Pisces, and your ruling planet Neptune will be in your sign during 2019, making you extra sensitive! This year, you have to claim time and space to yourself and learn to enjoy your own company. Anyone who can’t rock with your sensitivity has got to go.
Aries (March 20 - April 19)
Love: Your ruling planet Mars was retrograde during the summer of 2018, which kind of sucked for your love life. But don’t worry, because 2019 looks like it’ll be much more passionate—perfect for a fire sign like you!
Money: As the bold ram of the zodiac, you’re equal parts roasted and beloved for your bossiness. This year will find you getting serious about your career and stepping into your role as an authority—enjoy!
Spirit: This last year was a profound one for you to dive deep within and truly get to know yourself. 2019 will be the perfect time for you to take what you’ve learned and share it with the world.
Taurus (April 19 - May 20)
Love: This upcoming year will be powerful on the sex and intimacy front, Taurus! You’ll be learning about your partners on an even deeper level, and working out issues concerning shared money or resources. You’re also going to tackle tough discussions about things like death—but if you and your partners face this together, everything will be ok!
Money: You are known as one of the most stubborn signs of the zodiac, Taurus, and that can often manifest in your unwillingness to tackle communication problems. This year, your ability to talk things through will be deeply tied with improving your financial situation, so keep that in mind!
Spirit: Erratic is not the word most people would use to describe you, Taurus, since you’re the type of person to order your favorite menu item every single time. However, 2019 might find you feeling a little wacky and full of surprises! You can rock with it if you’d like, but if that makes you feel out of sorts, I’d suggest trying something that makes you feel grounded, like meditation.
Gemini (May 20 - June 21)
Love: Get ready, Gemini, because 2019 is a huge year for your partnerships! Expect to be in many relationships—or, if you’re monogamous, for your current partnership to grow and deepen.
Money: This year found you indulging in some bad spending habits, Gemini, and shit really hits the fan in 2019. However, luck will likely intervene on your behalf—but only if you’re sincere in your attempts to work out a budget!
Spirit: As an intellectual air sign, you value all things cerebral. Lucky for you, 2019 has a huge psychic awakening in store for you, so it would be wise to read up on intuitive development in preparation!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Love: A big shift is coming to your romantic life, Cancer. You’re letting go of some long-standing partnerships and making way for new ones. Time will feel like a strange concept when it comes to love—you’ll feel like you’ve known someone you just met forever, or run into someone from your distant past and feel like you only saw them yesterday.
Money: This is a big year for your career, dear crab—so many gigs are coming your way! Your schedule is going to be busy as hell in 2019, so it’s important that you spend your time wisely and avoid taking on too much. You’ll feel pressured by the work on your plate, but it’s better to say no to something than half-ass it!
Spirit: Letting go of the past can be hard for you as an emotional water sign, but the upcoming year will give you a tremendous opportunity to do exactly that. So many new experiences will be presented to you that leaving the past behind won’t feel like heartbreak, but a natural step in your journey forward.
Leo (July 22 - August 23)
Love: Fated meetings occur in 2019, and deep, intimate connections will be formed. That said, Leo, you will face one challenge: If you can’t get close to someone without relying on some sort of substance to get you out of your head or falling into a spiral about your fear of the future, then you won’t actually be able to reap the gifts of intimacy.
Money: Huge changes to your career are coming this year, and you may even enjoy some overnight success—although we both know you’ve been working harder and longer than that phrase implies!
Spirit: 2018 brought big shifts to your home and family life, but thankfully, 2019 will provide stability to your everyday routine. You’ll be expressing yourself in creative ways and developing a deeper connection with your inner voice—especially since 2019 will find you navigating your fears of the unknown.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Love: You had absolutely no idea what was going on in your relationships in 2018—and you’ll still feel that confused in 2019, honestly! However, change is afoot and deep connections are sure to be made. Dating used to be fun and easy for you, but lately, it’s not something you’re doing lightly. This trend continues in 2019—just make sure you seriously consider and then communicate your thoughts and needs to your partners.
Money: 2018 was a crazy year for your finances, but luckily, 2019 will be much more chill when it comes to money. You’ll be bringing your unique creativity to your day job in a more concrete way!
Spirit: You’re a sign that gets caught in your own head, but 2019 is all about getting in touch with yourself spiritually. Your psychic intuition is blooming, and with it, you must develop your ability to discern your own feelings and expectations from the ones other people try to push on you. Cultivating a happier, comfier home is also a big theme for you this upcoming year.
Libra (September 22 - October 23)
Love: As a Venus-ruled sign, you love love! Luckily for you, 2019 will make your relationships feel less rocky, and bring opportunities to dive deep with your partners on an emotionally intimate level. You’ll be making some surprising discoveries about the people you connect with.
Money: A big shift in your career arrives in 2019, Libra, and a fantastic new beginning comes to you this summer! However, while there will be a fated feeling in the air, you may also feel some anxiety if you’re uncertain about your end goal. The best you can do is present in the moment.
Spirit: You’re a people-pleaser and the diplomat of the zodiac, but 2019 will urge you to set firm boundaries. Your privacy, personal space, time, and energy must be respected—and your feelings, too! You have to learn to say no even when your urge to please everyone is off the charts!
Scorpio (October 23 - November 22)
Love: If you thought 2018 brought big shake-ups to your relationships, 2019 will definitely still surprise you! Some unexpected meetings will take place. You’re usually a touch too kinky for fairytale romances, but that’s exactly what this upcoming year has in store for you. Prepare to be swept off your feet!
Money: This will be an over-the-top year in money for you, Scorpio—whether that’s a good or bad thing depends entirely on how responsible you choose to be!
Spirit: It will be crucial for you to create safe, cozy, and comforting spaces in your home in 2019, Scorpio. On an emotional level, this also means you’ve got to set firmer boundaries. You’ll also be working through some family issues this upcoming year, so be sure you know what you need to rest and recharge.
