Augusta Margaret River Times - - Time Out -


The lu­nar eclipse (on Jan­uary 21) her­alds a dra­matic year for love. Fe­bru­ary is a fab­u­lous time to travel with your part­ner. But your ro­man­tic life looks rocky in July, when Mer­cury re­verses through your re­la­tion­ship zone and com­mu­ni­ca­tion goes hay­wire. So, it’s not an ideal time to make im­por­tant de­ci­sions about mat­ters of the heart. Sin­gles, are you look­ing for your soul mate in all the wrong places? In April and May, true love could be as close as the boy or girl next door.


The in­ter­net and luck are linked in 2019 and your pub­lic pro­file could sud­denly take off via the clever use of so­cial me­dia (and a help­ing hand from Jupiter). A tweet, blog post, video or pod­cast could reach a wider au­di­ence or even go vi­ral. As­tute Aquar­i­ans will find nu­mer­ous ways to mon­e­tise lucky op­por­tu­ni­ties. But avoid be­ing im­pul­sive and buy­ing big ticket items (like a car, home or in­vest­ment prop­erty) in Fe­bru­ary, when Mer­cury re­verses through your money zone.


With Saturn, Pluto and three eclipses high­light­ing your hu­man­i­tar­ian zone, many Aquar­i­ans will be­come in­volved in vol­un­teer work as you help the old, sick, home­less or dis­ad­van­taged. You’ll feel ex­tra rest­less in 2019, as Jupiter and Uranus stir up your gypsy gene and you’re keen to ex­plore lo­cal land­marks, travel in­ter­na­tion­ally or move in­ter­state. But you may dis­cover that the grass isn’t al­ways greener.

Love, travel and ad­ven­ture are linked in Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary. From March you’ll feel like re­fresh­ing your dat­ing pro­file, tak­ing a fledg­ling fling to a se­ri­ous new level, road-test­ing a po­ten­tial part­ner, or re­boot­ing a longterm re­la­tion­ship that’s in a rut. But mat­ters of the heart are likely to stall in July, when Mer­cury re­verses through your ro­mance zone. It’s not a good month to cel­e­brate an en­gage­ment, get mar­ried or launch a new li­ai­son.


With for­tu­nate Jupiter ac­ti­vat­ing your ca­reer zone, an ex­cit­ing new pro­fes­sional ven­ture is shin­ing on the hori­zon. So, it’s a won­der­ful year to look for a job, hit your boss for a raise, ap­ply for a busi­ness loan, ex­pand your present vo­ca­tion, buy out a strug­gling com­peti­tor or live the lap­top life­style by start­ing an on­line busi­ness. If ex­tra money comes your way, don’t be too im­pul­sive or short-sighted. Make sure you se­cure any wind­fall wisely, with an eye to your long-term fu­ture.


In Jan­uary, June and Novem­ber, the Saturn/Nep­tune con­nec­tion helps you be more pro­duc­tive with your cre­ativ­ity and spir­i­tu­ally. So, it’s the per­fect time to take up a daily dis­ci­pline plus turn an ab­stract idea into a con­crete re­al­ity. But ex­tra cau­tion is re­quired in Fe­bru­ary and Septem­ber. Don’t be gullible and let a du­bi­ous friend, col­league, client or cus­tomer lead you down the prim­rose path to Pis­cean trou­ble!

Re­la­tion­ships will be “steady as she goes” in 2019, which could be an is­sue for adren­a­line-ad­dicted Rams. If you are at­tached, do all you can to re­boot a stale part­ner­ship or fix a frus­trat­ing prob­lem. If you al­low bore­dom and com­pla­cency to set in, then it won’t be long be­fore you’re head­ing out the door. Sin­gles, with Venus vamp­ing through your sign (from April 21 un­til May 15), you’ll be at your be­witch­ing best as you at­tract ad­mir­ers like moths to a flame. So, it’s the per­fect time to fall in love or join an on­line dat­ing site.


Travel and luck are linked in 2019, when you could ben­e­fit from an in­ter­na­tional con­nec­tion. Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary are par­tic­u­larly good months to tap into your en­tre­pre­neur­ial side and turn an ab­stract, in­no­va­tive idea into a lu­cra­tive project. But avoid gam­bling, real es­tate spec­u­la­tion and joint fi­nan­cial ven­tures in July and Novem­ber, when Mer­cury scram­bles your logic and con­fuses your busi­ness brain.


Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary are the months to take some cal­cu­lated risks and set a fab­u­lously unique course for the year. But your pro­fes­sional life is in for some se­ri­ous and trans­for­ma­tive changes as you take on more re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in your cur­rent po­si­tion, ac­cept a lead­er­ship role, start a new job or change ca­reers. With Jupiter jump­ing through your ad­ven­ture zone, travel beck­ons.

Love and lust are on the menu for at­tached Bulls in 2019, when (cour­tesy of ex­trav­a­gant Jupiter) your sex drive soars. Jan­uary, Fe­bru­ary and De­cem­ber are ter­rific months to travel with your part­ner, prefer­ably to an ex­otic for­eign des­ti­na­tion that’s near wa­ter. Sin­gles, don’t sit around wait­ing for true love to knock on your door. Fe­bru­ary, May and June are fab­u­lous months to flirt up a storm and cir­cu­late in style (in per­son and on­line).


Lucky Jupiter is mov­ing through your money-from-oth­ers zone (un­til De­cem­ber 2, 2019) so you could ben­e­fit from a favour, free­bie, pay rise, in­her­i­tance, gift, bumper tax re­turn, divorce set­tle­ment or su­per­an­nu­a­tion pay­out. Make sure you man­age any wind­fall wisely, with a view to long-term fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity. Then, from De­cem­ber 3 on­wards, there’s money to be made via pub­lish­ing, ed­u­ca­tion, travel, busi­ness trips, in­ter­na­tional con­tacts, im­ports or ex­ports.


2019 is the year when you can re­ally stand out from the crowd and make a strong im­pres­sion in the pub­lic sphere. With unique Uranus mov­ing back into your sign (from March 6 un­til 2026) the more au­then­ti­cally you ex­press your per­son­al­ity, tal­ents and cre­ativ­ity, the more suc­cess­ful you’ll be. Saturn, Pluto and four eclipses are ac­ti­vat­ing your ed­u­ca­tion zones. So, it’s im­por­tant that you chan­nel se­ri­ous and fo­cused en­ergy into up­dat­ing your skills or study­ing new sub­jects.

“All of us in­vent our­selves. I’ve al­ways taken risks and I’ve never wor­ried about what the world might think of me.”



Cour­tesy of boun­ti­ful Jupiter, 2019 is a very pos­i­tive year for re­la­tion­ships. You have much to learn from your spouse and the more you ex­plore new hori­zons to­gether, the bet­ter the part­ner­ship will be. Sin­gles, you could dis­cover your per­fect match when trav­el­ling; be at­tracted to some­one from an­other coun­try or cul­ture; find true love with a teacher; or a pla­tonic friend­ship could take a ro­man­tic de­tour!


When it comes to re­ceiv­ing funds from oth­ers, 2019 will be a frus­trat­ing year. If some­one owes you money, don’t ex­pect it back in a hurry. If you find your­self in fi­nan­cial dif­fi­culty don’t pre­sume that fam­ily or friends will bail you out. In this eco­nomic cli­mate, the thriftier you are, the bet­ter your fis­cal fu­ture will be. Jan­uary is the best month to com­mit your­self to a re­booted bud­get. If you are se­ri­ous about mak­ing progress, you’ll start to see pleas­ing re­sults by July.


Love, friend­ship, luck, travel and busi­ness are all linked. So, 2019 is a for­tu­nate year to start (and pro­mote) a promis­ing joint ven­ture, es­pe­cially with a busi­ness part­ner from an­other coun­try or cul­ture. But avoid mak­ing im­por­tant ca­reer de­ci­sions in Fe­bru­ary, July and Novem­ber, when Mer­cury re­verses though your money and work zones. Take the time to re­search, re­vise, re­think and re­cal­i­brate.

Ex­pect some chal­lenges in 2019 as Saturn, Pluto and three eclipses stir up your re­la­tion­ship zone. Sin­gles, you may have to date a few duds be­fore you find your dream lover. Don’t give up. At­tached Crabs, Fe­bru­ary is the prime month to plan a ro­man­tic week­end es­cape with your sweet­heart, when Venus boosts your sen­su­al­ity and lust for life. Things could come to a head in July, when the lu­nar eclipse shines an un­for­giv­ing light on a frus­trat­ing prob­lem.


The lu­nar eclipse fires up your money zone in Jan­uary. So be care­ful you don’t get car­ried away on hol­i­day or at the sales and end up with a fi­nan­cial fi­asco. In 2019, good for­tune man­i­fests via your con­nec­tion with a friend, col­league, em­ployee or ten­ant. You’ll also find that pru­dent spend­ing, solid work habits and a healthy life­style will lead to more op­por­tu­ni­ties.


Ex­ist­ing one-to-one re­la­tion­ships (whether ro­man­tic, pla­tonic or busi­ness) have a karmic qual­ity to them over the com­ing year. You could meet some­one for the first time where you ex­pe­ri­ence a dis­tinct feel­ing of deja-vu. The Saturn-Nep­tune con­nec­tion stim­u­lates your kind, car­ing and hu­man­i­tar­ian side in Jan­uary, June and Novem­ber. You’ll feel like trav­el­ling in April and De­cem­ber but ex­pect some tur­bu­lence along the way.

Pre­pare for bank­ing, real es­tate and stock mar­ket volatil­ity in 2019, which could even re­sult in an­other Global Fi­nan­cial Cri­sis. So find prac­ti­cal ways to pro­tect your as­sets and gain more fi­nan­cial free­dom and in­de­pen­dence. Can you sell prop­erty or shares to pay off debt and boost cash flow? Or earn ex­tra money turn­ing some­thing you love into an en­tre­pre­neur­ial ven­ture? LEO LOVE & LUST

In 2019 you’ll ex­pe­ri­ence a lucky love cy­cle, as Jupiter pow­ers through your ro­mance and good for­tune zone. So, it’s a won­der­ful year to join an on­line dat­ing site, fall in love, move in to­gether, pro­pose, get mar­ried or re­new your wed­ding vows. You could also go on a spe­cial hol­i­day with your part­ner or start a hot ro­mance with a sexy for­eigner, as love and travel are con­nected. The best months to take a trip are Jan­uary, Fe­bru­ary, April and May.


Many Leos will be ex­tra lucky in 2019, as pros­per­ity planet Jupiter moves through your good for­tune zone! So, it’s an aus­pi­cious year to sell shares or real es­tate, en­ter a com­pe­ti­tion, buy a lot­tery ticket, visit the casino, win at the races or launch a lu­cra­tive project. But avoid mak­ing im­por­tant fi­nan­cial de­ci­sions (like ap­ply­ing for a loan or sign­ing a con­tract) when Mer­cury is ret­ro­grade in Fe­bru­ary, July and Novem­ber.


It’s a fab­u­lous year to foster friend­ships, as you ex­tend your peer group to in­clude a gen­er­ous and phil­an­thropic new crowd. Your fam­ily life is also in­cred­i­bly im­por­tant in 2019. Some Lions will wel­come a new baby or en­joy im­proved re­la­tions with a child, teenager or par­ent as you share mu­tual hob­bies, sports and in­ter­ests. You’ll also feel more benev­o­lent to­wards a re­cal­ci­trant rel­a­tive and may find it in your heart to for­give and for­get.

Nep­tune and Saturn stim­u­late your love zones in 2019, so you could cel­e­brate your en­gage­ment, get mar­ried, move in with your lover or be­come a par­ent, as you strive for per­ma­nence in your pri­mary part­ner­ship. With hard work, your love life will slowly go from strength to strength. Sin­gles ex­pect a tem­po­rary dat­ing drought in Fe­bru­ary, when Mer­cury re­verses through your re­la­tion­ship zone. Best times to meet your soul mate are May, June, Au­gust and Septem­ber.


With pros­per­ity planet Jupiter vis­it­ing your do­mes­tic zone, fam­ily and luck are linked. So, the pe­riod be­tween now and De­cem­ber 2 is the best time to re­dec­o­rate, ren­o­vate, sell or buy prop­erty, house-sit, re­lo­cate or start a home-based busi­ness. Good for­tune could also come via a loved one, dis­tant rel­a­tive or fam­ily friend. Your luck­i­est days of the year are May 3 and Au­gust 21.


With four eclipses stim­u­lat­ing your peer group zones, is 2019 the year to sever ties with a fair­weather friend? Make it a pri­or­ity to fill your friend­ship group with pos­i­tive peo­ple who en­cour­age your tal­ents and sup­port your dreams. Mer­cury (your rul­ing planet) is ret­ro­grade Fe­bru­ary 528, so be care­ful when com­mu­ni­cat­ing with loved ones; July 7Au­gust 1 looks tricky for friend­ships and net­work­ing; from Oc­to­ber 31-Novem­ber 20 ex­pect com­puter, travel or car chaos.

Jan­uary and June are ter­rific times to travel with your sweet­heart. April and May are the best months to bring more ro­mance, flirt­ing, fan­tasy and fun into the re­la­tion­ship. Sin­gles, make sure you’re ac­tively on the look­out for love in Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary, when ad­ven­tur­ous Uranus and proac­tive Mars power through your part­ner­ship zone. And don’t be shy about pro­mot­ing your pos­i­tive qual­i­ties. If you don’t love and re­spect your­self, then why should any­one else?


Pros­per­ity planet Jupiter moves through your com­mu­ni­ca­tion and so­cial net­work­ing zone un­til De­cem­ber 2, 2019. So, you could hit the in­ter­net jack­pot when some­thing you post (or sell) on­line goes vi­ral. There’ll also be op­por­tu­ni­ties to boost cash flow via writ­ing, teach­ing, pod­cast­ing or pub­lic speak­ing. But your fi­nan­cial sit­u­a­tion could stall (or tem­po­rar­ily go back­wards) in Novem­ber, when Mer­cury re­verses through your money zone. With plenty of per­sis­tence, things will soon be back on track.


Ex­pect some hic­cups dur­ing the com­ing year as Saturn, Pluto and three eclipses stim­u­late your home zone. Any dra­mas will be eas­ier to man­age if you are flex­i­ble and take your do­mes­tic re­spon­si­bil­i­ties se­ri­ously. With Jupiter ac­ti­vat­ing your travel zone, an in­ter­state so­journ or an over­seas ad­ven­ture are on the cards, so visit cities with fab­u­lous food and fash­ion.

Sin­gles, are you stuck in a rut, brood­ing about the past or search­ing for love in all the same old places? With Uranus and Nep­tune ac­ti­vat­ing your re­la­tion­ship zones, be more cre­ative and ad­ven­tur­ous as you look for a lover who shakes up your com­fort zone (some­one with an avant­garde ap­proach to life). At­tached Scor­pios, 2019 is the year to get the bal­ance right be­tween the sta­bil­ity of your day-to-day rou­tine and the ex­cite­ment of your shared dreams and fan­tasies.


Fi­nances and luck are linked in 2019, as Jupiter (planet of pros­per­ity and good for­tune) tran­sits through your money zone. So ex­pect a boost to your bank bal­ance via a pay rise, bonus, gift or ex­tra busi­ness com­ing your way. It’s also an aus­pi­cious year to buy a lot­tery ticket, en­ter a com­pe­ti­tion or bet on the horses. Any wind­fall won’t last long if you don’t man­age it wisely though. So, make sure you squir­rel ex­tra cash away.


Jupiter is jour­ney­ing through your self-es­teem zone. So, it’s time to truly love your­self and ex­pand your per­sonal pa­ram­e­ters so you can be­come the big­gest and best ver­sion of your­self that you can pos­si­bly be! And don’t dis­miss the as­sis­tance of oth­ers. In­flu­en­tial peo­ple are happy to help you. With an ex­pe­ri­enced teacher, coach or men­tor, you can achieve great things. If you travel in 2019, it’s likely to be for work or study pur­poses, rather than just friv­o­lous fun.

In 2019, strive to get the bal­ance right be­tween be­ing an in­de­pen­dent free-spirit and hav­ing sat­is­fy­ing re­la­tion­ships. Sin­gles, you’ll feel ex­tra frisky in Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary, as you flirt up a storm and cir­cu­late in style. So, it’s the per­fect time to host a party, go on a blind date, join a sin­gles club or look for love on­line. If you are at­tached, al­ter­nate solo projects with joint ven­tures. May and June favour com­pan­ion­ship, ro­mance and pam­per­ing your part­ner, so plan some­thing spe­cial.


With Pluto, penny-pinch­ing Saturn and four eclipses stir­ring up your money zones, ex­pect de­layed pay­ments, tax prob­lems, di­min­ished cash flow or bud­get blow-outs. July looks par­tic­u­larly prob­lem­atic, when ret­ro­grade Mer­cury and two eclipses bring fi­nan­cial is­sues to a head. Sep­a­rat­ing your wants from your needs is a must.


Lucky Jupiter is mov­ing through your sign un­til De­cem­ber 2, which is good news for your gen­eral health, phys­i­cal vi­tal­ity and men­tal well­be­ing. Jupiter also gives you the chutz­pah to ini­ti­ate per­sonal changes and then take on the world. Make the most of this pow­er­ful en­ergy surge, which hap­pens only every 12 years. It’s time to be the best and bold­est Sagit­tar­ian you can be, as you take on am­bi­tious chal­lenges and ven­ture into ex­cit­ing new ar­eas that would usu­ally daunt you. Con­fi­dence is def­i­nitely the rocket fuel that will take you places in 2019!


Tay­lor Swift, Brad Pitt.


“Hap­pi­ness and con­fi­dence are the pret­ti­est things you can wear.”

The so­lar and lu­nar eclipses (in Jan­uary and July) could stir up hid­den ten­sions, par­tic­u­larly if one of you has been putting work be­fore the re­la­tion­ship. It’s best to bring these prob­lems up into the light of day, where they can be ex­am­ined, dis­cussed and re­solved. Cu­pid’s ar­row is most likely to strike sin­gles in Fe­bru­ary, May or June, when you’re at­tracted to a ten­der Tau­rus or a car­ing Can­cer. So, brush up on your flirt­ing tech­nique.


In­tu­ition and luck are linked, as your in­ner voice guides you. But be very care­ful about money mat­ters in Jan­uary and July when the lu­nar eclipse and ret­ro­grade Mer­cury scram­ble your fi­nan­cial an­ten­nae. The luck­i­est month of 2019 is De­cem­ber, when pros­per­ity planet Jupiter ac­ti­vates your per­sonal and good for­tune zones. Make sure you pre­pare well dur­ing the pre­ced­ing 11 months so you’re ready, will­ing and able to cap­i­talise on good luck when it lands.


Saturn presents some se­ri­ous chal­lenges in 2019. If you learn from them, then you’ll grad­u­ally de­velop and ma­ture … like a fine red wine. Ac­tiv­i­ties like yoga, con­tem­pla­tion, med­i­ta­tion and jour­nalling are favoured, as Jupiter jour­neys through your spir­i­tual zone and you tap into the wis­dom within. The pos­i­tive Saturn/Nep­tune con­nec­tions (in Jan­uary, June and Novem­ber) are fab­u­lous for tak­ing a spe­cial dream and spin­ning it into re­al­ity.
