Robin Armstrong’s Zodiac Predictions: January 2019 + The Year Ahead

Aries

MARCH 20 to APRIL 19   

January will be a month of contrasts. On the one hand, the Force will be with you and you will spontaneously chase after what you want. On the other hand, you will be easily bored and restricted by those in authority. There will be a need to follow your impulses. The New Moon of Jan. 5 will also be a time when responsibilities will make demands! Take care of duties quickly! The Full Moon of Jan. 21 will be a harmonious lunation. Be spontaneous and take the initiative.

Special Focus: If you were born between Apr. 18 and 20 then this will be a month of excitement and sudden changes. You will have little or no patience. This is a time for radically independent initiatives. Act on your goals. Go with the change, not against it! It will be your move!

YEAR AHEAD: In 2019 instabilities will lift, but the weight of responsibilities will increase. Necessity will rule. Don’t expect favours from those in authority. Some travelling will release the pressure and open new opportunities, but you’ll be forced to wait for any extra benefits. Take care of the most difficult things first and that will free up some time for enjoyment.

Your most stressful times will be from May 16 to July 1, and from Oct. 4 to Nov. 19. Your most harmonious times will be from Mar. 31 to May 16, and from July 1 to Aug. 18. Your most powerful and energetic times will happen between Jan. 1 to Feb. 14 when Mars travels through Aries.

Special Focus: If you are an Aries born between Apr. 18 and 20, the winter will find you vulnerable to sudden let-downs or unexpected changes. This will also be an accident-prone time. When you have let go of what no longer belongs, the worries will fall away. By Springtime you will start to be yourself again. Once free, don’t look back!

Taurus

APRIL 20 to MAY 20   

During the first week of January you will encounter periods of discontent. In this time period, you will need to avoid complaining and splurging. No good will come out of anger or vulgar expressions. Circumstances will calm down in the second week and the rest of the month should flow smoothly for you. The New Moon of Jan. 5 will be a harmonious lunation. Trust your instincts! The Full Moon of Jan. 21 will be a stressful lunation. Try to let things go!

Special Focus: This will be a relatively easy month for most Taureans. There will not be any major challenges or disruptions. Because of this easygoing time, it will take longer than expected to get rid of the weight put on over the holidays. No need to force issues right now, just relax and enjoy the month!

YEAR AHEAD: In 2019, life looks pretty good for Taureans. You should be able to handle any challenges that arise with relative ease. Responsibilities will also be dealt with calmly.

January will be a month of excess for most Geminis. You will tend to exaggerate and overindulge. Misunderstandings are likely to increase at your expense.
