We are in a Universal Number 3 Year
This year we go into a 3 Universal Year in numerology which is all about communication, creativity and self expression. No doubt there will be scandals in the news concerning inappropriate communications because anything that is done shoddily will be exposed this year. This year we will also hear a lot about authors and new books being released with revolutionary ideas, new communication through technology, Uranus in Taurus will come into play here and more scandals will arise concerning social networks and political parties, particularly relating to user data. You can read more about the Universal Year 3 here.
The world now tentatively steps into a new age, so get your skates on because it’s going to be a ripper in terms of transformational change in many areas of life. 2019 promises to be a turbulent, inventive, surprising year full of intriguing twists and changes not only in our personal lives but also in the political, business and scientific arenas.
Below are the some of the main astrological influences for 2019.
Jupiter in Sagittarius
Mother Jupiter left Scorpio back on November 8, 2018 and moved into Sagittarius where she will reside until December 2, 2019. Jupiter the planet of good fortune, optimism and confidence is doing a lovely little dance which will expand our horizons both emotionally and physically. Mother Jupiter is the planet of abundance, good luck, expansion and over indulgence.
Everything about her is LARGER than LIFE, so going BIG is a BIGGIE in 2019 relating to all things Sagittarian.
2019 Highlighted Themes
Animals | The Earth | The Physical Body | Adventure | Travel | Freedom | New Horizons and Expansion | Ethics (or lack thereof) | Philosophy | Storytelling | Humour | Idealism | Optimism | Confidence | Domination and Subjugation | Impatience | Broken Promises | Overconfidence | Superficiality | Inconsistency | Carelessness | Tactlessness
We will be hearing lots about all these things in 2019 which will be highlighted and amplified. The world and all her inhabitants need us to listen to them. Climate change, animals and the Earth will take more of centre stage this year. Let’s bring in positive change for the Earth as soon as possible through meditation and gratefulness. It starts in a small way with each and every one of us.
In Sagittarius, Jupiter is likely to encourage adventurous activities. Going out and stepping up will be on the cards this year, whether that be in terms of long journeys overseas or short trips in your nearby neighbourhood. You may also be enjoying flights of fancy in your mind if you’re not getting out much. Whichever… but the overall theme is big M ‘Movement’.
Freedom and expansion will be very important this year
It will be the freedom to grow, experience and gain wisdom from your various travels that quenches a thirst deep down in your very Soul. Jupiter is a planet of optimism and confidence, so fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo watch out for plenty of opportunities coming your way. As freedom is so important this year, expect to hear a lot more about refugees fleeing their homelands due to climate change, crime, political unrest and poverty. Border control and immigration will be ongoing and worsening issues for many western countries as refugees seek freedom and safety. It’s time to let go of the past and move forward.
The 2019 horoscope overview indicates there will be the opportunity for many beautiful moments under Jupiter’s embrace and some old fashioned good luck! As well as physical benefits we will all get a spiritual boost that will give us a greater appreciation of the unseen things in life. If you are a Sagittarius or have Sag in your chart, then you’re ahead of the pack, you will be most positively affected by this influence which gives you the most opportunities, but many people will benefit in some way when it comes to the bounty of Jupiter in Sagittarius, depending on your own personal astrology chart.

Jupiter is direct November 8, 2018 to April 10, 2019.
Jupiter turns retrograde April 10, 2019 to August 11, 2019 so things may slow down or appear to go backwards in some way. This is a good time to review your hopes, dreams, goals and plans.
Jupiter goes direct again August 11 to May 14, 2020 so life picks up with expansion and opportunities opening up.
Jupiter Square Neptune
Jupiter squares Neptune on January 13, 2019 and then again on June 16, 2019 and finally again on September 21, 2019.
This influence may test some of us, especially if we lose faith due to a feeling of loss or disappointment. Sometimes, this influence can indicate a sense of trusting someone too much or being ungrounded about the limitations of a romantic interest.
There could be a sense of betrayal or disappointment. Best get your feet back on the ground, avoid addictions such as alcohol or overeating and pay more attention to the basic physical elements of life in the here and now. You could be feeling ‘all at sea’ but Spirit is trying to guide you home to yourself by encouraging you to search within.
Delusion is a real issue when Jupiter squares Neptune and it can come in spades! Pay attention to those you trust who have a genuine interest in your welfare. They will help you stay practical and not get ‘carried off with the fairies’. Walking, particularly with a dog (they have 4 feet on the ground), doing yoga, gardening, staying in touch with your body and the Earth will see you through. Watch your diet and eat clean wholesome foods from the ground. Focus on the colours brown and green.
Look after yourself on a practical level during this time of spiritual breakthrough. Don’t go too woo-woo, keep your feet flat on the ground and avoid get rich quick schemes. But do enjoy the mystic feelings that this influence imbues into your watery subconscious. Be simultaneously optimistic and realistic.
Those people who are not realistic and who are overly trusting will end up being disappointed. We will hear of grassroots movements rising up in multiple countries when they realise they have been duped by the governments and authority figures they once trusted. There will be many scandals causing many political parties, leaders and authority figures to be ousted. Last night I had a vision of Scott Morrison, current Prime Minister of Australia in a boxing ring with gloves, trying to fight his way out of a tough situation.
Jupiter in Capricorn
Mother Jupiter enters Capricorn on December 2, 2019 until December 18, 2020.
Capricorn is a down to earth, practical and organised Earth sign. When Jupiter enters this sign, you are likely to feel more goal oriented and wanting to achieve more. Accomplishment can in fact be your middle name! Like the sure footed goat, you climb mountains and get to your destination through sheer determination and persistence.
Finances become easier to deal with as you get all your ducks in their respective rows. When you’re organised like this, others notice and you could receive help from government authorities, legal eagles or father-like figures.
Good governance of your life is the name of the game during this time. You are more likely to be methodical and look after your material wellbeing. It’s a great time for planning and strategising in fact.
It’s time for caution, structure, wisdom and maturity and you may in fact be quite attracted to those who exhibit these characteristics. You could meet someone like this and be interested in having some sort of relationship.
You may also be feeling more enthusiastic about your physical health and you may decide to take up an exercise routine and get out and about more. Everything associated with Jupiter is BIG, so do be careful if you don’t want to put on extra weight.
Saturn in Capricorn
Saturn shifted into Capricorn end of December, 2017 and boy did I feel it! Serious Saturn resides here until March 21, 2020. Saturn makes things physical through responsibility and often hard work. No more airy fairy nonsense, the time has come to get serious and real. Serious Saturn wants cold hard physical results and doesn’t suffer fools gladly. So excuses just don’t cut the mustard any longer. It’s all about making your true heartfelt desires real this year.
We will see government authorities continuing to crack down hard in 2019 and we’ll be hearing more about law, structures, debt, karma, body weight and obesity, depression, restrictions, obstacles, time and order. Serious Saturn wants to bring order to Uranian chaos. Although Saturn is well known as a hard taskmaster because he really pushes us, it’s actually for our own benefit. Whatever we accomplish under the guidance of Saturn this year, we actually get to keep. The wisdom and experience that comes from all the Saturnian life lessons cannot be taken away, it’s ours. Saturn is a slow and steady builder who wants us to move forward at a gradual pace. The spontaneity and rush of other planets just isn’t there with Saturn. It’s all about being slow, steady and persistent that wins the race. Saturn is encouraging us to put down solid foundations on which we can build our futures based on our true heart’s desires, not what we ‘think’ we should be doing.
Serious Saturn will be in Capricorn for a couple of years when he will then move into Aquarius. If you are an Aquarius (or have planets in this sign) you will probably feel the heaviness of the Saturnian energies more so as 2020 draws closer. Saturn rules Capricorn and at the very beginning of astrology thousands of years ago, Saturn also ruled Aquarius way before Uranus was discovered. There is still some of that old ancient Saturnian energy around for Aquarius.
It’s a good idea for everyone but particularly for Aquarians and Capricorns to save their money over the next few years. Be conservative and don’t take risks. Try to remain stable and secure. Undertake study if you have the opportunity. There may be dealings with the law, expect an increase in law related matters. No shortcuts are allowed during this time, do everything thoroughly and do not gamble away your hard earned money or emotions until you are sure of success.
If you are a Libra, Cancer or Aries, you too will feel the heavy energy of this transit as these are also cardinal star signs. If you have any planets in the early degrees of these signs, you also pick up a Saturnian hit.
It’s been a bit of a rough ride for many people lately who have experienced round after round of change and transformation. Now, it’s time to get those lessons grounded so we can make something physical out of what has happened to us. Find the silver lining and make the best of it.
Saturn is direct from December, 2017 to April 30, 2019.
Saturn goes retrograde April 30, 2019 to September 18, 2019. Reflect on issues arising with authority and father-like figures.
Saturn turns direct September 18, 2019 to March 21, 2020.
Uranus in Taurus
Our tumultuous friend Uranus moved into Taurus on May 16, 2018 and resides there until April 26, 2026. The Great Awakener Uranus will be serving up great change and revolutionary trends worldwide. Uranus is associated with rebellion, revolution, radicalisation, shocks, electricity, turmoil, lightning, technology and the internet. It is a bringer of unexpected things, but these are not always negative. Sometimes Uranus brings us good fortune like a ‘bolt from the blue’. Getting your power bill down by installing solar power is a fortunate example of the Uranian influence or even winning the online lotto!
We will see increased use of the internet for all manner of things. New software will be developed to successfully jump the real world – v- internet great divide. Businesses will need to adapt and be nimble rather than doing things in the way they always have. Change will be extensive and constant (gives me a headache just thinking about it!).
When Uranus is resident in Taurus, it’s all about making things real, practical, organised and down to earth. Tumultuous and innovative Uranus will probably have a ding dong battle with the conservative and slow status quo energies of serious Saturn. Fair dinkum, these two ain’t going to like each other for the next few years. It’s kinda like really old parents past their prime, battling with irascible teenagers. Watch the sparks fly as we find ourselves in a push me pull you type scenario where parts of us wants to move forward at any cost and another part wants to be a bit of a stick in the mud. Somehow, we are all called to find balance between these opposing energetic poles.
Taurus loves money and it is no coincidence that Wall Street has a statue of a bull, denoting being bullish in the stock market. We can see that world financial structures including economies and governments will be greatly transformed up to 2026 thank you Mr Uranus! We will be moving increasingly towards technology and a push will be on to minimise the cash economy. Governments will want to minimise funds leaking to terrorism activities as well as collecting tax on black economies and multinational corporations. Expect phenomenal changes in stock markets, banking, superannuation, insurance and government benefits right down to businesses and individual finances. Seriously folks, new money systems will be coming in right across the board. Expect a Facebook tax or something similar for large digital platforms including social media. These platforms will be increasingly regulated from 2019 onwards.
There’s no coincidence that Uranus like a bolt from the blue will revolutionise money. Currency will be connected more-so to the Uranian current – turbulent, unpredictable and revolutionary.
Certain cryptocurrencies will gain ground, but many will crash and burn as quickly as they came. Bitcoin has had several crashes and lost more than 75% of its value. So do be careful where you put your money over the next few years. I predicted back in 2017 the big banks were already working on development of their own cryptocurrencies with government assistance and this was publically confirmed in 2018. Governments will be forced to regulate cryptocurrencies. Both banks and governments want their slice of the pie and these are the cryptocurrencies that will succeed.
More millionaires and paupers will be made than ever before over the next few years and the world will be increasingly divided between the poor and the wealthy before things get better. Sadly division and polarisation will reach new heights. Politicians trying to hang by their teeth to old ways of doing things will disadvantage both themselves and their constituents. We all know what happened to the dinosaurs! There’s no use going back to the past, the only way to do Uranus in Taurus is to move forward and go with the flow whilst examining your relationship to the physical world.
Those of us with planets in Virgo, Scorpio and Aquarius will be more affected whilst Taureans and those with planets in Taurus will be impacted the most by this transit.
Uranus is retrograde August 7, 2018 to January 6, 2019. This is a great time to reflect on personal freedom and finances. There’s likelihood of an upheaval in economies and financial markets during this time. Likewise in the next retrograde up until 2025.
Uranus turns directs January 6, 2019 to August 12, 2019.
Uranus goes retrograde August 12, 2019 to July 7, 2025.
Neptune in Pisces
Neptune entered Pisces on February 3, 2011 and will stay there until approximately January 2026. Pisces is the natural home of Neptune and this transpersonal planet takes approximately 165 years to make a complete orbit around the sun. Neptune in Pisces heralds the development of the arts, spirituality and the release from the subconscious of secret and hidden information. Artists, dancers, musos and mystics, your time has come! Rejoice in your creative freedom!
As a herald of the transformation, especially when Neptune is resident in its home Pisces, Neptune helps get us in touch with who we really are, connecting us more to our Souls, the source of our existence. The watery home of the subconscious becomes more alive as the silver living waters from the Soul course through our bodies keeping us alive. Eventually, these spiritual waters will make their way to the oceans of the Earth in a physical sense and reinvigorate them as humanity realises what we have done to our pristine waters.
Neptune in Pisces is opening up spiritual dimensions to many people. Now is a great time to delve deep down into your subconscious to search for any hidden gifts that lay hidden. Your divine gifts seek to be released, whether they be in artistic fields or in spirituality. Neptune is also the realm of compassion and the Earth could do with some more of that!
Neptune is direct from November 25, 2018 until June 22, 2019.
Neptune goes retrograde July 22, 2019 to November 28, 2019. Beware of delusions during this time.
Neptune turns direct November 28, 2019 to June 23, 2020.
Pluto in Capricorn
Here’s another planet in earthy Capricorn, Pluto has been here since 2008 and will stay until 2024. Both Uranus and Pluto are ‘transpersonal’ planets and are associated with life and death. This means they deal with energy beyond this present lifetime, so we can experience sudden and inexplicable karma. You may not have a clue as to why a certain situation is happening ‘to you’, but be assured, the Universe does keep count. Everything is acknowledged and noted by Spirit. Karma weaves her magic path through our lives often through the agency of powerful Pluto. Karma chameleon Pluto sometimes comes to tear down, destroy and decimate anything holding back our spiritual growth. Often we don’t realise what’s happening immediately but one way or another, we will grow.
With Saturn, Uranus and Pluto in Earth signs, whatever is hanging about in Spirit, will soon be paying us a visit on planet Earth. Pluto will break through the surface of the soil so that the seeds from the past can sprout to bring in the future.
Pluto went direct September 30, 2018 and will stay direct until 2024.
Our old friend in charge of communications, fast moving M/s Mercury goes retrograde three times in 2019. Dates are in Australian time, so minus a day roughly if you’re in the USA:
March 6, 2019 (Pisces) – March 29, 2019 (Aries), emotions will likely come to the surface and analytical thinking may be fuzzy or confused. Steer clear of tasks requiring logic if possible as your subconscious will rule the day rather than your head, especially as Neptune is also hanging about at this time. Try not to be overly spontaneous or erratic.
July 8, 2019 (Leo) – August 1, 2019 (Cancer) starts in fire-sign Leo, ends in water-sign Cancer which could affect your family and/or home life. It’s a great time to reconnect with family end of July or those you haven’t seen for long time from your past. At the start of this retrograde, miscommunications might occur over who wants to be the ‘boss of the wash’ or situations where dominance and subjugation are themes, so do be a little careful or arguments may blow up.
November 1, 2019 (Scorpio) – November 21, 2019 (Scorpio) secrets may be exposed unexpectedly so do remember “loose lips sink ships” so be careful of what you say. Scorpio is big on secrets but also a pretty sexy sign, so sex and relationships could feature during this time. Your ex might come back so be on the look out!
These are not good times for important communications, contracts, legal issues, or even equipment which may experience failures and breakdowns. You can read more about Mercury retrograde here including information concerning the ‘shadow period’ (article coming soon!)
Retrogrades slow us down and get us to review what we have already been through. During these times, it’s a good idea to be a little more circumspect than usual. If you do anything major, you might find that you have to go back and revisit it when Mercury turns direct. One silver lining – you might find something (or someone) you lost a long time ago!
Solar and Lunar Eclipses
In 2019, we have three solar eclipses and two lunar eclipses. Add a day if you’re in Australia:
January 5: Partial Solar Eclipse in Capricorn (Earth sign).
January 20: Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo (Fire sign).
July 2: Total Solar Eclipse in Cancer (Water sign).
July 16: Partial Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn (Earth sign). Conjunct Jupiter in Capricorn and trine Uranus in Taurus…something really big and lucky could happen, a major windfall is possible.
December 26: Annular Solar Eclipse in Capricorn (Earth sign).
An eclipse acts like an energy amplifier. It forces us to wake up (often with a bit of a start), get moving on a path and take action. An eclipse shakes us up to get us to change. Earthquakes sometimes occur in connection with eclipses. Mother Earth is just showing us a physical reflection of ourselves. Read more about eclipses here. ADD LINK.
A mixed bag of potent energies for this year with electrifying excitement, abundance, turmoil and intrigue. It’s also a time of hidden secrets being exposed which will affect millions of people, no doubt many will be disappointed by their leaders. There is also unexpected good luck for some people.
Despite whatever is happening physically, it’s also quite a spiritual year so take time out to meditate and get in touch with Spirit. No matter what is happening in your life, try to stay calm and whenever possible, turn off all your devices and go outside into nature away from craziness of modern life. Spend time on your own, feeling the beauty of your own Soul.
In your bedroom, remove all electrical devices when you are trying to sleep. There could be many instances where you might feel ‘wired’ with racing thoughts going through your brain, particularly if you live in a large city.
It’s a time of liberation where the veils will be lifted from our eyes so that we may see the truth. Be prepared but be open to all the opportunities Spirit has to offer this year.
