be­fore New Year’s, after which the en­ergy shifts with a vengeance. We need to be on fire this year, but the type of fire — the hearth of the gath­er­ing col­lec­tive, a com­bus­tion en­gine build­ing speed, or a burn­ing house — will be up to us.

Let’s start the year by bring­ing that so­lar spark into our hearts. We’ll need to build mo­men­tum over the next few years as Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, and Uranus work through grounded, con­crete, and ter­ri­to­rial earth signs. Ev­ery­one feels called to make tan­gi­ble changes but we dis­agree widely on what that in­volves. Do we build the wall or save the Earth? Like a moun­tain, earth signs bring en­ergy that is hard to get mov­ing, but once an earth­quake be­gins, the mo­men­tum can be un­stop­pable. Saturn and Pluto are both in de­ter­mined, earthy Capri­corn as 2019 be­gins.

Nep­tune will be in Pisces, an in­tu­itive if con­fus­ing wa­ter sign. While this en­cour­ages our spir­i­tual lives to flow, it may also keep con­fu­sion and il­lu­sion as ma­jor in­flu­ences in world pol­i­tics.

The week­end be­gins un­der a friendly Libra moon: ques­tions of peace­ful­ness ver­sus progress and care ver­sus con­trol may erupt. The moon en­ters con­tem­pla­tive Scorpio on Mon­day. We can med­i­tate on the year be­hind us and on what we choose to in­voke in the year ahead, but it might be good to avoid con­tentious peo­ple and dif­fi­cult ter­rain on New Year’s Eve.

Pas­sions run high as 2019 be­gins. Mars in­hab­its its own sign of Aries, and we’ll feel the need to fight the good fight. Venus be­gins the year in Mars-ruled Scorpio, bright in the morn­ing sky and strong in our hearts. Soli­tude is lovely, but iso­la­tion is not, so reach out. A new chap­ter be­gins on Wed­nes­day, Jan. 2, as a moon-Jupiter con­junc­tion stirs new direc­tions, con­fronta­tions, and a fresh sense of pos­si­bil­ity.

As the moon op­poses Mars, open the heart to an ex­is­ten­tial ache and a range of deep feel­ings. Find mo­ments for art that touches the heart as Venus sex­tiles Pluto un­der a peace-lov­ing Libra moon. We need to feel emo­tional hon­esty.

We can feel a push and pull; opin­ions dif­fer, peo­ple’s needs may be out of sync, and se­ri­ous­ness com­petes with the ex­tended hol­i­day as the moon squares the sun and Saturn. If a de­sire to ac­com­plish goals com­petes with a need for rest and peace, feed the peace.

Get the so­cial­iz­ing in early. Make ad­just­ments this af­ter­noon as the moon op­poses Uranus. Con­sider step­ping back for per­sonal in­ven­tory tonight as the moon en­ters Scorpio.

Last-minute ad­just­ments are good this morn­ing as the Scorpio moon keeps our fo­cus. En­ergy and tem­pers in­crease tonight as Mars en­ters Aries for a fes­tive if po­ten­tially con­tentious evening.

Let peo­ple have their time alone for hang­overs or per­sonal re­pairs this morn­ing as the Scorpio moon con­juncts Venus. Be with one an­other in an ac­cept­ing way. This af­ter­noon, run with projects or spon­ta­neous events. Avoid ar­gu­ments over au­thor­ity and con­trol, but en­gage in con­ver­sa­tion about fu­ture re­spon­si­bil­i­ties as the sun con­juncts Saturn. We can shift de­pres­sion into fresh de­ter­mi­na­tion with a clear chal­lenge.

We as­sert play­ful­ness as the moon en­ter Sagittarius. Feel en­thu­si­asm for the ab­so­lute re­bel­lion against what is no longer work­ing.

Op­ti­mism in­fuses the morn­ing as the moon con­juncts up­lift­ing Jupiter in Sagittarius. The need to fol­low a spon­ta­neous whim hits mid­day. Cre­ate plans for changes to come tonight as men­tal Mer­cury trines rest­less Uranus. Feed pos­si­bil­ity.
