Year of 2019: It’s not easy carrying the weight of the world, is it, Capricorn?

But with Saturn and Pluto staying put in your sign, the load won’t get any lighter in 2019… unless, that is, you learn to honor your own limits. Some burdens are rightfully yours, but if you’ve taken on responsibilities that don’t belong to you, it’s time to take them off your plate.

That’s easier said than done, especially with the South Node (also in your sign) amping up your workaholic ways. Fortunately, three eclipses in your sign (solar January 5 and December 25, lunar July 16) reveal these self-punishing habits for what they are, and help you let them go.

After all, Capricorn, we know that somewhere beneath the stern exterior, there’s a sense of humor just dying to come out and play! And this year, with Jupiter in Sagittarius, you’re feeling more playful—and hopeful—than ever. Venus conjuncts Jupiter twice this year (January 22 and November 24), giving you reason to believe that whatever happens, it’s all for the best.

True, with Jupiter also squaring Neptune in Pisces this year (January 13, June 16, and September 21), Pollyannaish optimism is something to watch out for. But you’re also tapping into deep inner sources of wisdom and love—and that’s something you can trust!

Let your intuition be your guide, especially during Mercury’s extended stay in Pisces (February 10-April 16). If you’ve got any major decisions to make, though, be sure logic gets a seat at the table—Mercury’s retrograde from March 5-28 can make critical thinking a challenge.

“Logical” or “practical” concerns often weigh you down, Capricorn. But with Uranus entering Taurus on March 6, this year you’re ready to shake them off and have some fun!

It’ll take some time, effort, and careful planning to make it work. But by the Virgo new moon on August 30, the conditions are right to begin a new adventure. With a Grand Earth Trine at this new moon—including five planets in Virgo, Uranus in Taurus, and Saturn and Pluto in your sign—freedom and responsibility go hand in hand.

Year of 2019: Someone’s got to be the “adult in the room,” Capricorn—but when that person is always you, it really puts a damper on your love life.

Fortunately, Uranus in Aries has brought some seismic shifts in your private life that gave you a lot more freedom and space to do your thing. And with Uranus changing signs on March 6 (energized by a conjunction with Mars in Aries’ last degree on February 12), you’re about to get your groove on!

True, when it comes to romance, you tend to play it safe—but Uranus in Taurus will stop at nothing to lure you out of your comfort zone. Chance encounters, intriguing invitations, and opportunities to show off your sexy side… Get ready for all this and more, especially between April 22 and May 18 (that’s when the sun, Mercury, and Venus take turns hooking up with Uranus)!

The same planets, plus Mars, will oppose Uranus during Scorpio season (October 7-November 24). New connections sparked in the spring could have a future… but don’t be in such a hurry to lock things down. Enjoy living in the heat of the moment… even if that makes you sweat a little!

The total solar eclipse in Cancer on July 2 brings new beginnings in relationships—whether it’s a brand-new love story, or simply a new chapter. Whatever happens in your love life this year, though, one thing’s for sure: with the North Node also in Cancer, you’ll need to get in touch with your sensitive side. After all, Capricorn, what good is being in love if you can’t let your feelings show?

Mercury spends the summer going back and forth between Cancer and Leo, making it time for some serious heart-to-hearts. What do you and your partner really need from each other—and how much are you willing to give?

Common ground may be hard to find, with a Mercury-Mars conjunction in Cancer opposite Saturn and Pluto in your sign (June 14-19). But don’t be afraid to try again—on July 8, retrograde Mercury reconnects with Mars in fiercely loving Leo!

Year of 2019: Money is no joke, Capricorn—but you know better than to take it too seriously.

The Leo/Aquarius eclipses of 2017-2018 brought some financial ups and downs, which required you to “think outside the box” and find creative ways to provide for yourself. Old, reliable income streams may have dried up, but this cleared the way for new opportunities to start flowing in. And in the meantime, you’ve learned how to stretch your dollar, and draw upon your impressive inner resources.

All these gifts should come in handy around the Aquarius new moon on February 4, when Mercury (also in Aquarius) sextiles Jupiter, Mars, and Uranus. Some unexpected expenses may pop up—possibly related to home or family—but try to take them in stride. With Venus in Aquarius square Mars in Taurus on March 21, it may be a choice between “seizing the day” and “saving for a rainy day.”

Still, Capricorn, if anyone can do both, our money is on you. Money management is just one part of a very diverse skill set—and the spring of 2019 provides plenty of opportunities to show off your range at work! Just make sure it’s not a thankless task. Between April 27 and June 24, inner planets traveling through Gemini will activate the Jupiter-Neptune square, making it a very fine line between service and self-martyrdom.

After all, Capricorn, you don’t need any encouragement for your workaholic tendencies—you’re way harder on yourself than any boss could ever be. And with planets in Libra squaring Saturn and Pluto in your sign from late September to early November, the need for work-life balance is something we can’t stress enough.

No, there’s nothing wrong with a little ambition. But this year, there’s a whole lot more to life than striving for success.
