Your best year ever?

Your best year ever? Yep, a click-bait headline if ever I saw (or wrote) one.

I’d like to think (and hope) that 2019 will be full of wonder and awesomeness, but as I get older (and hopefully wiser) I’ve learnt that you have to take the good with the bad and that it’s all part of the texture of living. I’ve learnt that you can only see a rainbow after the rain, that you can’t have a beginning without an ending or stay and go at the same time. It’s one of the reasons why I walk each morning at stupid o’clock: the sunrise is a physical reminder that every day is a new start.

Man, I’m sounding new age, but I’m determined to jump into 2019 feet first and go forth and achieve some epic stuff.

This year, for the first time since whenever, we’re starting the new year with Mars moving into Aries on New Years Day (for those of us in Australia) and New Year’s Eve (if you’re in the northern hemisphere).

What’s so great about that? I’ll tell you more about Mars in Aries in the next few days, but what you need to know now is that Mars likes to take action and move forward with whatever needs to be taken forward. In Aries, he wants to do that NOW already. What are you waiting for?

So yes, Mars in Aries is about new starts and this is a new year. Now, the thing about Mars in Aries is he does tend to get bored quickly so isn’t going to wait around while you plan things out. This also means that while Mars in Aries might help kickstart you, it’s consistency that will get you there – and that’s where Capricorn’s practicality comes into things.

In any case, if you’re looking to set some goals in 2019 but not sure where to start, your toolbox is here:

  • Something about how to use astrology to set and kick goals. This year’s post is here.
  • How to map your transits – and why you might want to. The post is here.
  • All the dates for lunations – New and Full Moons in 2019
  • All the dates and degrees for retrogrades – you can check out and see whether any planets are stationing on any important degrees in your chart.
  • The range of movement for the outer planets: UranusNeptune, and Pluto. This will help you time and transits that you could have coming up. Of course, you’ll still need to refer to an ephemeris for the exact date, but I can’t do everything for you…lol. What’s an ephemeris? It just so happens I wrote a post on that a lot of years ago. You’ll find it here.

Anyways, that’s all I had to say for now…be back soon with my wrap-up of the year that was…
