Between 2018 and 2019, 3 big planets are situated in their own signs – more exactly, in their home signs – which they govern and where they have the most power. Since 2011, for many years, Neptune has been in his home sign, in Pisces.
In DECEMBER, Saturn also returned home, in Capricorn. In NOVEMBER, Jupiter also moved in Sagittarius.
The periods of time when a planet returns home have a higher intensity, and that’s when the planets have the most powerful influence, therefore, when the powers of as many planets as possible, which are simultaneously in their home signs, are combined, those periods are full of energy, things are going better, we feel more lively and more prepared for any situations.
Take full advantage of these periods that display a maximum of planetary energy to complete your big projects.
Mercury Retrograde 2019:
- March 5 – March 28 (in Pisces sign)
- July 8 (in Leo sign) – August 1 (in Cancer sign)
- October 31 – November 20 (in Scorpio sign)
On March 5, Mercury enters in a retrograde position for the first time in 2019, and it will maintain its position until March 28. Its influence will be powerful not only for Pisces, but also for the other two Water signs: Cancer and Scorpio.
Between July 8 and August 1, we can discuss about a period of introspection, reanalysis, reorganization, corrections and return to some projects, relationships, actions . It is not recommended to start new actions, to launch new projects or businesses. It is time to resume some discussion, to make some corrections to the projects that were started few years ago, to renegotiate contracts, partnerships and we can also restart some courses or change our minds about other courses, or friendships.
In October 2019, Mercury will deliver a coup de grace: we will witness the recognition of the true values and the punishment of those who tried to take advantage of others for the past 27 years.
The third period is when Mercury goes back to a direct trajectory, on November 20, in Scorpio sign. It is the best time to concretize projects, to make the changes that we want and many things that we kept facing in the second part of July will start to clarify. We have more energy, as if we wish to recover a lost time, this being the perfect time for a new momentum.
Astro Predictions 2019 sign by sign:
2019 Planetary Influences
Venus will transit Scorpio from January 1, 2019 until January 1, 2020, when it will enter the Aquarius sign. Because the Scorpio is a pragmatic sign, Venus brings the capacity to look at any sentimental issues with a critical eye. It will help you find solutions more easily and, because of its influence, you will be able to avoid games, drama and any complicated situations.
This is a time when we can be more exigent in our social interactions. Our list of personal priorities includes choosing the people we want to surround ourselves with, but also what we want the most in our lives.
Venus is also the finance and assets’ planet, thus its presence in the pragmatic sign of Scorpio will bring even more financial responsibility. The Scorpio natives have to be careful about how they spend their money every day, but also to the investments they make.
Mars, the planet of action, sexuality and initiative, will enter the Pisces sign on January 1, 2019, where it will remain until January 1, 2020, when it will enter the Scorpio.
Due to the fact that the Pisces is one of the most passive zodiac signs, the planet of action is not quite at ease here. In the next period, the Pisces natives will have a hard time mobilizing and implementing their plans.
In 2019, the Pisces natives will encounter difficulties in taking decisions and overwhelmed by situations when they have to impose their point of view.
Instead, the actions that focus on emotions and feelings are favored, but also the support for those who are going through a rough time. It is also a good period for taking care of both your own health and the health of your loved ones.
Jupiter transits the Sagittarius sign from November 2018 until January 1, 2020, when it will enter the Capricorn. Jupiter is retrograde in 2019, between April 10 and August 11.
Jupiter is considered one of the planets that governs the social life and everything that is connected to communication and environmental integration.
Jupiter is also Cupid, especially for the Air zodiac signs. The retrograde motion of this planet often encourages widening the intellectual horizon and deepening the knowledge about spirituality, esotericism etc.
The period when Jupiter is retrograde in the air zodiac signs lasts 4 months. Jupiter will end its transit on August 11, a day when the Sagittarius natives will make the biggest changes in their lives.
Jupiter will be favorable for all the natives born under Sagittarius, Gemini, Capricorn, Virgo, Leo, Aquarius and Pisces. These natives will pass to the next level in all the spheres of their lives, especially in the professional domain.
The Virgo and the Pisces natives will have the opportunity to work abroad, and the young people born under this two zodiac signs can obtain scholarships abroad. The Capricorn and the Leo natives have a favorable love life, while the Aquarius and the Sagittarius will completely change their attitude in their relationships, which is going to act in their advantage.
Saturn continues to transit the Capricorn sign until December 17, 2020 and it will be retrograde in 2019, starting from April 30, until September 19.
Saturn or “The Big Maleficent” in Capricorn is very powerful, because it is the master of this very sign. Saturn is in a special position, called in astrology “home”, which emphasizes its inner symbolism and allows it to highlight the characteristics of Capricorn.
This positioning is considered rather positive than negative, being one of the few locations where Saturn gives all its best and does as little harm as possible.
Saturn approves the difficult and laborious projects that require a constant effort for a longer period of time, loves taking additional responsibilities, appreciates tenacity, caution and moderation, therefore 2019 is a good year for starting this kind of projects.
Uranus is going to be in a retrograde position 2 times throughout 2019, between January 1 and January 6 (in Aries sign) and August 12, 2019 and January 1, 2020 (Taurus sign). Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun. In astrology, Uranus is known for breaking barriers, which often has adverse consequences.
In the first part of 2019, until the big event that will take place in their home, the natives will face new challenges at work, their superiors will ask more from them and, of course, financially, these efforts will be rewarded accordingly.
On January 1, 2019, Uranus will be retrograde in Aries. This event brings along a number of major changes, but also a series of emotional or even health problems for some natives.
On August 12 (Uranus stations in Taurus): another vision regarding money, debt, desire to adapt, financial surprises.
The last time when Uranus was in Aries, in the period 1927 – 1935, humankind faced events and made discoveries that changed the course of history, some of which are similar to what happens in the present times:
- The first TV broadcast
- Hitler came to power in Germany, and fascism spread all over Europe
- Wall Street collapsed, followed by a global economical decline
- Penicillin was discovered
- Charles Lindbergh made his first solo transatlantic flight (from New York to Paris), and Amalia Earhart became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean
- An earthquake with 8.6 magnitude took place in China, with 200 000 casualties
- The largest hailstone ever recorded fell in Nebraska, SUA
- 1934 is the hottest year on record
Neptune is in Pisces from 2011, where it will remain until January 1, 2026 and it will be retrograde in the period: June 21 – November 27, 2019.
Neptune encourages our desire to dream, to be ambitious in creating beautiful things, meant to enrich our souls.
Every time Neptune enters a retrograde motion, we have the opportunity to obtain understanding and clarity in indecipherable matters. This acute sensibility can generate lethargy states and a strong desire to “disconnect” from everything that means every day chaos. If the desire to rest, to meditate or to spend time alone occurs, it shouldn’t be ignored.
Once Neptune resumes its direct trajectory in November, those who choose to live consciously the experience of Neptune retrograde, will gain a better and clearer perspective of the point where they are in their lives. And from this point, hopefully, we will be ready to take the right necessary measures and be able to build our path in this direction.
Pluto is in transit in Capricorn from 2008 until 2024.
In 2019, Pluto turns retrograde between April 24 and October 3.
Pluto, the slowest and heaviest planet of the solar system (it takes 248 years to cross the zodiacal circle), is comfortably settled in Capricorn for 12 years. Its first entry in Capricorn was on January 25, 2008.
Pluto governs the Scorpio, therefore it is a strong catalyzer for profound transformations, hidden resources, huge ambitions, power, regeneration, reconstruction, death and rebirth. Although the characteristics and effects that it might manifest can be guessed, Pluto is the most recently discovered planet (1930), and its nature is still too little known and analyzed.
The Capricorn is the sign of organization, restrictions, social ascension, resistance to harsh conditions, economy, ambitions, consistency and solid and authentic values.
Throughout 2019, political leaders, governments, and economic systems will change, but only where power has been abusively obtained or it has no solid foundation, or where there are considerable ideological fissures.
In other words, Pluto destroys everything that lacks quality, authenticity, with no chances to withstand the test of time. Instead, it builds something durable, on entire different bases than before. Everything that gets to be modified during these years will be hard to break down afterwards.
Pluto is associated with the dark side of human beings, with magic, occultism, the forces that act in secret. Yet, at the same time, Pluto means material wealth, sexuality, reincarnation, transformation and regeneration.
Therefore, although it acts globally, the personal effects generated by Pluto must not be ignored. Some natives are less sensible to its influence, especially those born under fire signs. Instead, the earth signs and the Scorpio are the most affected by the occult energy manifested by Pluto.
