Year Ahead 2019
With lucky, expansive Jupiter, your ruler, in your own sign for eleven months, you'll have moments of soaring confidence. Better relationships in general and resources coming your way are the gift of Jupiter, and also the message that what you give out comes back to you ten-fold. For all that you'll be preoccupied with tedious matters like money. Tightening your belt and cutting out indulgences will need to be the order of your budget as you instil more order into your finances with an eye to your longer-term security. It'll take perseverance and grit to move ahead with your plans but where there's a will there's a way. At work you'll notice a new spirit of defiance as you opt for a niche where you can follow through on your own ideas and not always be feeling others' instructions. You'll want to spread your wings and be free to suit yourself which may cause a few waves, but you won't care. Where health is concerned, you may be a touch nervy or highly strung so finding ways of winding down and re-centring will help your physical stamina. At home there may be a few muddles or disappointments since not everything will be coming up to expectation. Try to accept that perfection isn't possible and reality takes a bite out of every dream. Be happy with what you have and be forgiving if loved ones are sometimes preoccupied or evasive. Finding a new way of sharing, caring, relating and co-operating will be key to the second half year with the Cancer Solar Eclipse shining a light on all joint ventures, financial and emotional. Old habits die hard so it won't all be easy but if you can make a super-human effort to change then you'd find more fulfilment and satisfaction as the months go on. Money will finally start to come in faster towards the year end, setting you up for a more prosperous 2020.
