2018 was a year of inner growth and patience. We had many energies that were encouraging us to pause, reflect, and assess our motivation moving forward.
We had to question, we had to take time to ponder and reflect in order to know what was true in our hearts and what was worth fighting for. Perhaps now that we are at the tail end of 2018, we are able to look back and see that we are stronger, wiser, and that we accomplished more than we realized.
In 2018, we had many many planets in earth signs and as we enter 2019, this theme is going to continue with more planets shifting into earth signs.
Under this earthy energy, we are going to be working on creating security in our lives, finding our roots, grounding ourselves, and building towards something brick by brick.
On a global level, this earthy energy is going to force areas like politics, government, environment, and banking into the spotlight. These areas may also be up for change and review, especially as we approach the end of the year.
In fact, for most of 2019, we are in preparation mode, preparing for the huge energy shifts that are on the way in 2020.
2019 kicks off with Eclipse season beginning straight away. Eclipses are always potent as they often bring change, and shift our lives in a new direction. Eclipses can also trigger fated or destined events as well.
In 2019 we have three periods of Eclipses, the first in January, the second in July, and the last in December.
The January Eclipses are going to give us a glimpse of what’s to come for the year ahead and will help to set the tone. These Eclipses are extremely transformative and indicate that January will really be a month of release and preparation.
The first three months of 2019 also have high energy to them, indicating a lot of action and movement. We may find ourselves being pulled to a new path or making great progress.
While we can definitely make goals and resolutions at the start of the year, it will be interesting to see what shifts these January Eclipses bring. It may not be until February or even March that we will really know which direction we are being guided to move in.
From a numerology perspective, 2019 is a number 3 year and this indicates a time to express ourselves.
We are going to be encouraged to take all that inner growth we have been working on in 2018 and actually express it out into the world so it can manifest in the physical.
The number 3 also represents mind, body, and soul, so it will be important to get these elements of ourselves aligned in order to navigate the year comfortably.
Aligning mind, body, and soul is always helpful, however, we may find it particularly beneficial as we approach the middle of the year.
During this window, the energy of the cosmos will slow, giving us some time to catch our breath and make sense of all the year has brought our way so far.
Under this slower energy, we may also be encouraged to dig deep and uncover some wounds and pains in order to birth them into the light.
We have to venture into the dark in order to find our light. We mustn’t fear the dark, instead we have to embrace it and accept it as a part of life.
This is really an opportunity for us all to keep shining, keep expressing our authentic selves, and to find higher levels of consciousness.
After October, the pace picks back up as we make our way towards the final Eclipse of the year in December.
The December Eclipse holds opportunity and will shine a light on all that we have achieved and all that is to come.
These three periods of Eclipses in 2019 are going to give the year a strong lunar energy. Lunar energy is feminine and magical, and if we can combine this with the earthy energy on offer, we will really be able to ground and root ourselves so we can reach higher into the heavens.
All of the Mercury retrogrades in 2019 also take place in water signs. Water signs are known as being the most intuitive and psychic of the zodiac, and seeing as Mercury is the planet of communication, we are really going to be encouraged to tap into our intuition and listen to our intuitive voice.
We may also find it easier to tune into psychic messages and we may find our dreams being extra prophetic. Under this energy, more people will be awakening to their psychic and intuitive gifts.
There is definitely a lot of magical energy to this year, and we can use it to set intentions, manifest, and think about ways to harmonize and align mind, body, and soul.
Expressing our true nature is also going to be important, and this is something we will be reminded of throughout the year.
Being authentic is the highest vibration we can achieve, but what does it mean to be authentic?
Being authentic is about owning and accepting all of who you are, and not being afraid to be true to yourself.
Deep within us all, is the energy of love and that is who we truly are. When we tap into true authenticity we are actually tapping into this love that lives inside of us and all around us.
Authenticity is love. And by being true to ourselves, and not afraid to express ourselves, we can tap into this energy and change the world.
