Jupiter, planet of de­vel­op­ment and ex­pan­sion, will fo­cus on im­por­tant mat­ters re­lated to travel, con­tact with peo­ple abroad, legals, im­ports, ex­ports, study and ex­pand­ing your busi­ness in­ter­ests and hori­zons fur­ther afield.

Per­sonal fam­ily choices, ca­reer am­bi­tions and long-term busi­ness de­vel­op­ments are as­sured, and you may gain many new re­spon­si­bil­i­ties.

Ex­pect a busy year around your home, re­fur­bish­ing and en­ter­tain­ing. Some­thing quite un­ex­pected con­cern­ing the fam­ily en­vi­ron­ment could amaze you.

Best months for op­por­tu­ni­ties are Jan­uary, April, May, Au­gust and De­cem­ber – you may be greeted with a nice sur­prise. With Uranus in Taurus, this is a whop­ping year for things hap­pen­ing sud­denly or un­ex­pect­edly, so be pre­pared for a thrilling cy­cle of change, luck and va­ri­ety.


Bring magic, vi­tal­ity and com­pat­i­bil­ity to your gar­den to keep you in bal­ance. Plant vivid red flow­ers: rhodo­den­dron, be­go­nia, bot­tle­brush and gera­nium.


Money will be your prime goal in 2019, an ex­cel­lent year for in­vest­ment, loans, ex­tend­ing credit, buy­ing, sell­ing and trad­ing.

Home and se­cu­rity, and joint fi­nances, are ut­most in your mind and you may de­cide to in­vest in real es­tate and prop­erty.

You are com­menc­ing an im­por­tant de­vel­op­ment cy­cle and, by the end of this year, you will be thrilled with the ex­cit­ing changes in your des­tiny.

Dur­ing the last four months of 2019, ex­pect the tempo of your daily rou­tine to in­crease and your whole life will pos­i­tively open and your fam­ily achieve­ments will be enor­mous.

Life is cer­tainly go­ing to be dif­fer­ent from this year on­wards and oth­ers will no­tice a ma­jor change in your per­son­al­ity as you break away from the past and en­counter a new you.


Im­prove your spir­i­tual har­mony in your gar­den with flow­ers, orange and rich bronze in colour. Plant Flori­bunda roses, bird of paradise and hibis­cus.


Won­der­ful, lov­ing Venus will tran­sit Aquar­ius, Aries, Leo, Gemini and Libra in the months of March, April, May, June, Au­gust, Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber, in­flu­enc­ing your rou­tine, fam­ily, emo­tional ex­pe­ri­ences, ro­mance and love af­fairs, so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties and get­to­geth­ers with those you love.

Dur­ing this year your re­la­tion­ship or mar­riage will en­counter a pe­riod of hap­pi­ness and good for­tune.

Sin­gles will at­tract a part­ner of their dreams, who is bal­anced, gen­tle, calm and sen­si­tive, with the view of mak­ing a per­ma­nent com­mit­ment.

Lucky Jupiter will ce­ment all le­gal, busi­ness and per­sonal mat­ters in a very pos­i­tive way through­out 2019. Se­ri­ous thought will be given re­gard­ing travel to dis­tant places with your part­ner and a big de­ci­sion re­gard­ing your per­sonal and fam­ily life will be made re­gard­ing mi­gra­tion or re­set­tle­ment.


To im­prove your luck and hap­pi­ness, plant in your gar­den: ger­bera, red and yel­low var­ie­gated daisies, canna lily, im­pa­tiens and roses.


Lucky Jupiter will influence an ex­pan­sion and im­prove­ment that will af­fect your home and daily rou­tine.

Sat­is­fy­ing work­ing con­di­tions, ex­tra as­sis­tance and co­op­er­a­tion from staff and busi­ness as­so­ciates will be no­tice­able. Many fi­nan­cial re­wards and sat­is­fac­tion will ap­pear to you in the months of April, July, Oc­to­ber and De­cem­ber.

Ex­pect a year of co­op­er­a­tion and achieve­ment in ca­reer, home mat­ters and re­la­tion­ships. Re­wards and sat­is­fac­tion come through be­ing in the right place at the right time. You are ready to take on more re­spon­si­bil­ity at a mo­ment’s no­tice and you will en­counter peo­ple who will sup­port you in your en­deav­ours.

Chil­dren may ex­cite you with good news or their ad­vanced de­vel­op­ment through ed­u­ca­tion or ca­reer. Put your wor­ries to rest as 2019 will of­fer you many new di­rec­tions and bet­ter fa­cil­i­ties to reach your goals.


Bring peace, hap­pi­ness, love and to­geth­er­ness into your home by plant­ing: hy­drangea, hy­acinths, del­phinium, iris and bellflower.


Lady luck should smile upon you in 2019 and you may have a de­gree of good for­tune through spec­u­la­tion, the stock mar­ket, in­vest­ment, real es­tate, busi­ness or ca­reer.

Your at­trac­tion to en­ter­tain­ment, mu­sic, art, theatre and group ac­tiv­i­ties dur­ing the months of Jan­uary, Fe­bru­ary, March, June, Au­gust and Novem­ber may bring you recog­ni­tion and achieve­ment.

You could also be in the spot­light re­gard­ing group or club ac­tiv­i­ties.

Cul­ti­vate your cre­ative tal­ents and show ev­ery­one what you are made of; oth­ers will be im­pressed by your lead­er­ship and imag­i­na­tive abil­i­ties.

Ro­mance and fam­ily mat­ters will be suc­cess­ful and happy, and a fam­ily mem­ber could an­nounce sur­pris­ing news of sport­ing suc­cess, an en­gage­ment, mar­riage or birth. Do not let an op­por­tu­nity go by, for this is a year to achieve your most pre­cious busi­ness, per­sonal and fam­ily goals.


To boost your con­fi­dence and cre­ativ­ity, plant in your gar­den: sun­flower, glad­i­oli, banksia and proteas.


Ex­pect to be over­run with house guests, fam­ily and rel­a­tives – you’ll have your hands full at­tend­ing to home af­fairs. Mat­ters con­cern­ing real es­tate and the do­mes­tic front, in­clud­ing build­ing, ren­o­va­tions and landscaping, will keep you busy; def­i­nite im­prove­ments to your se­cu­rity will be no­tice­able.

Many im­por­tant af­fairs can now be wound up or fi­nalised and brought to a sat­is­fac­tory con­clu­sion. Travel for hol­i­days and fam­ily rea­sons may take up some of your time and, with Saturn’s influence, you may be­come more dis­ci­plined re­gard­ing bud­geted fi­nances and se­cu­ri­ties.

Im­por­tant news may have you in a spin dur­ing the months of Fe­bru­ary, March, April, Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber.

Stay cool and in con­trol as your re­spon­si­bil­i­ties in­crease. You or your part­ner may re­ceive the odd wind­fall through­out 2019; luck seems to come to you sud­denly and un­ex­pect­edly.


Per­fect your Virgo gar­den with com­pat­i­ble soul flow­ers, plant colour­ful aster, aza­lea, or­chid, dahlia, camel­lia and boro­nia.


A year to broaden your out­look, ex­pand your men­tal in­ter­ests and in­duce a much hap­pier, more op­ti­mistic state of mind. You won’t have two min­utes to your­self – ex­pect a sharp in­crease in travel, busi­ness con­tacts, phone calls, per­sonal meet­ings, con­fer­ences, er­rands, de­bates, con­fer­ences and writ­ing.

Mat­ters in­volv­ing fam­ily, close rel­a­tives, neigh­bours and work col­leagues will take up much of your spare time. If you wish to pur­chase that ex­pen­sive mo­tor ve­hi­cle, this is the year your dreams are re­alised.

A con­nec­tion with ad­ver­tis­ing, me­dia, sales, mar­ket­ing, teaching, train­ing and ed­u­ca­tion opens new doors for your fu­ture, es­pe­cially in the months of March, May, June and Oc­to­ber. Ma­te­rial pos­ses­sions, re­sources, mak­ing money and gain­ing wealth are yours for the tak­ing. Your part­ner and fam­ily will also share many of your ac­co­lades and hap­pi­ness.


To boost your love life, per­son­al­ity and con­fi­dence, plant in your gar­den: marigolds, lark­spur, tulip, bleed­ing heart and lo­tus.


Your in­come, per­sonal and fam­ily fi­nances and pos­ses­sions will grow through­out 2019. You may change banks, open a new sav­ings ac­count, re­ceive a loan or in­her­i­tance, or ac­cept a su­per­an­nu­a­tion pay­out or an un­ex­pected re­trench­ment pack­age. Any­thing to do with money should be pos­i­tive for you, and new op­por­tu­ni­ties to in­crease your as­sets will be made avail­able to you.

A def­i­nite in­crease in fi­nan­cial af­fairs with im­proved sources of in­come will be no­tice­able, es­pe­cially in Fe­bru­ary, April, May, June, Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber. Just re­mem­ber it’s easy come, easy go, so watch your ex­trav­a­gance.

Fam­ily prob­lems that stem from fi­nan­cial ties or re­stric­tions can be re­solved through­out 2019.

Travel and hol­i­days bring you re­lax­ation, hap­pi­ness and joy. You may spend much of your spare time spruc­ing up your dwelling and play­ing with new gad­gets and gar­den­ing equip­ment.


For your peace of mind, plant in your gar­den: ager­a­tum, chrysan­the­mum, salvia and moss rose.


This is your prob­lem-solv­ing year, and dur­ing this su­perb cy­cle you will re­solve many im­por­tant is­sues re­gard­ing ca­reer di­rec­tion, home and fam­ily mat­ters, fi­nances and sport.

Suc­cess and ex­pan­sion are key notes through­out 2019, es­pe­cially Jan­uary, March, May, June, Septem­ber and De­cem­ber.

A feel­ing of pos­i­tive buoy­ancy and brighter spir­its will as­sist you and your de­sires, and you can ex­pect a big lift in your per­sonal life and in­ter­ests.

Con­tact with pro­fes­sional and well-to-do peo­ple will sup­port and en­cour­age you and much en­joy­able travel can be ex­pected with a part­ner or fam­ily.

It’s an ideal year to com­mence new be­gin­nings, start any­thing new such as a pro­ject, idea, in­ter­est, ac­tiv­ity, trend or con­di­tion. Your high en­ergy level will aid your de­ter­mi­na­tion to get things done with the min­i­mum of fuss, and you will not have time for dawdlers.


To en­hance your per­son­al­ity, plant in your gar­den: nar­cis­sus, poin­set­tia, daf­fodil, freesias and kan­ga­roo paw.

Saturn’s influence will be given to pri­vate and con­fi­den­tial mat­ters, hid­den things, and ac­tiv­i­ties that are car­ried out be­hind the scenes.

Ca­reer, fam­ily, per­sonal re­la­tion­ships and fi­nan­cial se­cu­rity will be much on your mind, and all re­stric­tive­ness, un­der­hand­ed­ness, in­trigues and locks that have pre­vented you from pro­ceed­ing ahead will now be con­quered once and for all, and your ca­pac­ity to pull off a job well done will be recog­nised.

A few fam­ily or per­sonal mys­ter­ies and puz­zles will be solved, and mat­ters con­cern­ing health and med­i­cal is­sues may cross your path in some way.

Deep love and emo­tions pull you closer to those you care for, and some will com­mence a new love af­fair that is in­tense with com­pat­i­bil­ity. In­ter­est­ing sit­u­a­tions may arise in the months of Fe­bru­ary, March, April, June, Septem­ber and De­cem­ber that con­cern your ca­reer, home and so­cial life.


En­hance your in­tu­ition and aware­ness in gar­den­ing, plant: zin­nia, car­na­tion, mag­no­lia and pansy.


Jupiter will help ex­pand your re­la­tion­ship with friends, as­so­ciates and so­cial ac­quain­tances.

Much har­mony can be gained through your con­nec­tions with so­ci­eties, fra­ter­nal groups, clubs, fel­low­ship and gath­er­ing to­gether with peo­ple for a com­mon pur­pose.

Many of your hopes, wishes, as­pi­ra­tions and the things you long for may come your way dur­ing March, June, Au­gust, Oc­to­ber and Novem­ber.

Re­la­tion­ships fea­ture strongly and, for those wish­ing to tie the knot, 2019 is your year. Out­door in­ter­ests, cre­ative ac­tiv­i­ties, en­ter­tain­ment, sport and travel will have you con­nect­ing with some wealthy and in­flu­en­tial peo­ple.

Chil­dren fea­ture through­out 2019 with suc­cess in study, ca­reer, real es­tate and trans­port. Don’t be sur­prised if you re­new old ac­quain­tances or at­tend a re­union or cel­e­bra­tion that brings back mem­o­ries and a touch of nostalgia.


Brighten your per­son­al­ity, by plant­ing in your gar­den: gar­de­nia, car­po­bro­tus and nas­tur­tium.


Your pro­fes­sion, ca­reer, sta­tus, am­bi­tions, worldly goals and ac­tiv­i­ties should be pushed to the max­i­mum. In 2019, with the aid of Uranus, ex­pect many sud­den and un­ex­pected op­por­tu­ni­ties to come your way.

Much sat­is­fac­tion, suc­cess and recog­ni­tion is ahead and you may ob­tain a pro­mo­tion, hon­our and fame. You can reach your peak and peo­ple of high po­si­tion and power may take you un­der their wing and as­sist you with your goals.

This is a won­der­ful year to open a busi­ness, change your ca­reer di­rec­tion, build your dream home or climb your lad­der of suc­cess.

Do not dis­card any op­por­tu­nity – 2019 brings you great suc­cess and an op­por­tu­nity to lift your­self and your fam­ily to a higher and bet­ter stan­dard of liv­ing, es­pe­cially in the months of Fe­bru­ary, March, June, July, Septem­ber and Novem­ber. Home se­cu­rity is guar­an­teed.


To heighten your psy­che, plant in your gar­den: sweet pea, corn­flower and poppy.
