There's no holding back this year, Aries. In 2019, you get to show the world exactly who you are and what you can do!
Your ruler is powerful Mars, and you start the year with it going full speed ahead in your sign. This gives you an incredible power boost and sets a great tone for the rest of the year regarding goals and ambitions. By early October, however, Mars enters Libra, where it loses some of its power, so you might not feel as spontaneous and driven. Libra is a charming influence, but when you try to tone things down, it could come off as passive—aggressive. You have good intentions, but you just don't carry the poise and grace thing off too well.
The sun is in your sign in late March through the end of April, and now there's absolutely no shame in showing the world the pure, unadulterated version of you! That means you're bold and spontaneous and full of life — and you always follow the excitement wherever it may lead. You're at your competitive best right now as well, so finishing first is your top priority. Just try not to lose sight of your true motivation while you're running toward the finish line.
And speaking of running (your mouth), it's easy to get tripped up on your words and say the wrong thing during the three Mercury retrograde periods (in March, July, and late October), especially when it comes to your feelings. With these retro cycles in touchy—feely water signs, you really struggle to express yourself the way you want. The key to escaping them without too much damage is to go with your gut. If it feels like the right thing to say, go for it.
Just because you're in a relationship doesn't mean you can't shake things up. Hang in there as you navigate the curves that 2019 has in store for you.
Saturn travels through strict, earthy Capricorn this year, putting a very determined spin on your love life. You're ready to take responsibility for what has happened, is happening, and will happen regarding your relationship – and you want to do whatever's necessary to make it work. This is a great “I told you so” for the people in your life who were wondering if you were ever going to settle down.
If you're ready for some major romantic shakeups, Uranus turning direct and hanging out in your sign between January and March should be the eccentric energy you're looking for. Your enthusiasm for new ideas and romantic experimentation is obvious, but it can be very frustrating when your partner won't indulge a wild fantasy. One thing to remember, Aries, is you can't hurry love (or lust).
There's a full moon in your sign to look forward to in mid—October, especially if you want to finally put an end to an argument or disagreement that's been going on for a good part of the year. It really is time to let it go, don't you think? You should be able to convince your partner of it, too. And if you can manage to forgive each other once and for all, the makeup sex is phenomenal!
Money & Career Horoscope:
Can you rely on your ambition and aggressiveness to get ahead in 2019? Yes, but balance and patience also play a role.
Venus watches over your money situation, and when she's in conservative, security—focused Taurus in the middle of May, you're looking for value in major purchases and overall financial security. You're normally a big impulse shopper, but right now it pays to look around for quality pieces that will last a long time.
Remember that Saturn is in Capricorn for the year, and its retrograde period from late April to mid—September calls for you to be very patient regarding your career. You're still a competitive go-getter, but this combo challenges you to outline your goals before setting anything in motion.
The moon rules over your emotions, and as an impulsive fire sign, you often aren't very in tune with the lessons that the lunar cycles try to teach. But the new moon in Gemini at the beginning of June brings so many interesting ideas that they'll be hard to ignore! You can make great progress in your career if it involves communication of any kind. Get your amazing ideas in front of the right person so they can get the green light. Or maybe you have a best-selling memoir inside you that's begging to be put down on paper. Get your idea or manuscript to an agent! How about starting a blog about all your amazing adventures? Making money with your ideas is easy under this intelligent, versatile new moon.
