No one can tell you what will happen in the future – predictions are general and will apply to most people, but not all. Many people, however, will encounter a very different outcome. In this prediction, I’m showing the general energy working for and against us in 2019 – which begins in early February and ends in late January 2020.
Too often in 2018, the Dog was the Master.
While 2018 was an emotional improvement over 2016 and 2017, it was still fraught with challenges, obstacles, and ego. For some, this Dog Year (Chinese Astrology) and “2” (Numerology) brought opportunities for expansion and personal success. For others, 2018 sucked slightly less than 2017. The more determination and pressure added, the stronger the outcome. In 2019, our power continues to rise with even more cooperative and confident energy. Where the Minor Arcana of our lives is at play, 2019 offers chances to finally break negative patterns, shift limiting thinking, and use our wit and intellect to finish projects and objectives underway.
Is a Pig smart, lazy, or both?
2019 is a Pig year with honesty and joy having greater value this year over most. This means that it should be easier to maintain optimism and keep yourself motivated this year. The Chinese, however, see the pig as lazy (although happy), so watch out for those couch potato tendencies. Having an objective that you believe in is key to making your way to it. It’s a good year for social gatherings and friendships.
A Numbers Game
In numerology, 2019 is a 3 which can be very good for achieving goals and committing effort but can also pit a larger group against a very entrenched, stubborn smaller one. Don’t allow yourself to be put in the middle this year! Magic and chaos are strong. As a result relationships will see many changes this year.
Feeling adrift in your little boat?
2019 begins slow (as most years are best to do), so new projects begun in January may see a slower start than expected. Faith is needed – growth is likely this year for those willing to commit necessary energy. In February and March, however, energy is more positive – making some feel hopeful, but still a bit limited. Events that occur in April may destabilize many, but sets the stage for an increasingly positive and strong rest of the year.
2019 – A View from the top (major arcana)
The rise of the feminine aspect continues to threaten those who cling too tightly to the necessity of strong masculine influence. The feminine is also at risk from within as we misunderstand the vast difference between feminine and female, an argument that has confused men and crippled women through history.
Each of us, female, male, and everyone in between holds both masculine and feminine energy and are constantly struggling with which energy to encourage or discourage when and where. Breaking it down, masculine energy is about doing, conquering, building, crafting, mastering, winning, and attaining power. Feminine energy is about thinking, planning, creating, nurturing, growing, collaborating, and holding onto self through the process.
2019 – Through the Minor Arcana
For healthy relationships, this is a good year to upgrade your surroundings and celebrate your success. For struggling relationships, be aware of a great temptation to stray this year as the 3 can often cause a divide. Doing things together is wise this year.
For material matters, Spring cleaning is a must. The more bright and shiny things in our view, the happier we will be. Finance energy is on the rise, but more for the little guy with a plan than the gluttonous rich. Financial plans such as budgets will offer more cooperation this year.
For mental and physical health, take action when laziness creeps in and avoid focusing on what you cannot do. Focus on your health not your disease. What you focus on grows more than ever this year.
Problem energy will rise in April but should bring light over the next few months. Communication may be challenging, especially when more than two are involved. Best to keep things as focused and basic as you can.
Something for Everyone
Basically, 2019 will offer sound opportunities and strong luck energy for those who actively seek and are determined to find it. Joy is elevated making stress easier to let go. This year continues the rise in energy begun in the summer of 2017. Trust your instincts and don’t believe everything you are told. Think for yourself and feel lighter! Conversely, hold ill feelings and sink and struggle.
In retrospect, 2018 was a Dog year in Chinese Astrology and so was planned to be more cooperative – especially if there is a clear objective and, being that it was a “2” year in numerology. For many (not most) it was a good year for cooperation and partnerships. Unfortunately, there is one rule with dogs – if there is a master, the master is followed. 2018 was a bit short on true leadership qualities and so chaos was given the reigns. Fortunately, the strong energy of cooperation (the pack) continued to rise.
Good luck to you in 2019. Walk with joy and intention this year. You’ll soar!April – TarotAndBeyond.com
