The first weekend of 2019 begins with several very powerful celestial configurations that accelerated the start of the year from the very first day of January. First Mars entered Aries on the 1st January and still keeping the energy levels very high, a few days after that on Friday, Mercury is at its final degree of Sagittarius bouncing into Capricorn on Saturday creating strong mental ripples within the boundaries of the perceivable etheric fabric. After these two, we will be hit by an energetic blast at the first hours of Sunday here in the UK, when we are going to witness a solar eclipse at 15 degrees of Capricorn. This can signify a  big new beginning and because it is happening near the south node many will have to deal with or contend with some issues from the past.

And this is not all for this weekend, in addition to the major energies at the end of the weekend, Uranus goes direct bringing fresh dynamics to the already complex concoction of energies. At this point, we will have all planets in direct motion opening more possibilities for things to happen in our lives.

Friday is not going to be the quite day we usually are inclined to think just because it is the first Friday after the holiday season. Mercury is making us extremely optimistic and enthusiastic while still in Sagittarius and is pushing the boundaries of the mind to expand and be aware of every opportunity today. The Marsan energy is particularly strong adding impulsivity to our actions helping us to get things done and prepare for the intensity of this weekend.

Most people will be busy sorting some outstanding issues, catching up with the work that has been piling up and organising activities for the next couple of days. The catchword for this day is action so almost everyone will be engaged with something.

Neptune is still in sextile with the Sun and we are feeling the force of the creative energy within us, we are guided by strong intuition which in most cases will be very helpful. Our receptivity is heightened diminishing the power of our own ego opening our hearts towards greater empathy for the needs of friends, neighbours or co-workers.

Towards the end of the day the Moon conjuncts Mercury merging emotions and intellect. We can be very level headed and can communicate our emotions in a clear and easy to understand way. Those who are more perceptive will be able to sense the thoughts of the people around them.

Saturday and Sunday carry the energy of the first Solar eclipse for 2019 which will occur on the 5th or 6th of January depending on where on earth you are at the moment. Saturday is the day when the concentration of the energies will be at its highest not just because of the eclipse but also all the other planets visiting Capricorn at the same time.

In the very early hours of  Saturday Mercury will leave Sagittarius and its cheerful and optimistic attitude towards everything and will enter Capricorn. This will dampen his mood but will bring a greater depth of our thoughts, he seeks and brings real news because he had enough fake stories. This will influence our mental dynamics making us more serious and our thoughts far more structured, we will walk our talk. Although Mercury in Capricorn makes our mind goal orientated and we are far more sensible we shouldn’t let this seriousness to kill your sense of humour. This is an important reminder because just before the eclipse the Moon will conjunct Saturn and will bring some chills and even more seriousness making some of us appear cold-hearted and compassionless. This is short-lived transit but can be a reason for unpleasant conversations or hurt feelings.

All this energy can be resourceful if you are making plans and calculations for your future projects, especially the ones you’ve been trying to release at the end of the last year. There is a potential for realisation, the pressure is building up but the time for discharging it is still to come. Hold on to your ideas and don’t be impulsive, the new Moon is now planting the seeds for your projects but it will take some time for them to germinate and become real.

This Solar eclipse will mark a new beginning for many of us, it can be karmic and very significant with long-term implications because it occurs in Capricorn and conjuncts closely Saturn. This gives indications for something solid but will affect people in a different way depending on their personal birth chart. In spite of all, another important characteristic that marks this solar eclipse is that it certainly carries some issues from the past because of its proximity to the South Node. These can be old ambitions or plans that have been waiting for the right moment to come or an old chapter of your life suddenly appears and will have to be closed so you can continue on your journey.

The concentration of planets in Capricorn on this day creates a strong call for a reality check in every level, not just mental but also emotional and spiritual as well as material. We are inclined to be more organised, serious and responsible towards our personal interests and relationships with others, we are clear what we want and how to achieve it. People are more reliable and have higher but realistic ambitions to reach tangible and lasting results.

Some of us might become moody and very sensitive to the vibes coming from those around them because the Moon will cause some extra susceptibility while reaches exact sextile with Pluto in the first half of Sunday. Try to surround yourself with positive individuals or be aware of this positivity in order to avoid absorbing someone else’s moodiness.

Moon/Pluto sextile can manifest favourable conditions for spending time alone and reflecting on your available options through meditation because Pluto has the ability to take us deep into the pits of our own soul where we can find answers to those questions that seem unclear. By being on your own you might discover you know things that you weren’t aware of.

This weekend certainly brings greater down to earth awareness of your plans, expectations, and direction for the next six months.


The tarot card this weekend is The Tower, associated with the Planet Mars. Mars rules Aries, Scorpio and represents how you assert yourself and express your desires. The essential keywords for Mars are: will, energy, drive.

Keywords – Destruction, problems, situations that must change, profound transformation, warnings.

The archetype of The Tower is the liberator, freeing the psyche from the prison that the ego has made to keep you safe. Most of us will experience The Tower process several times within our lifetime.

The Tower challenges the masks you hide behind. It shows you the naked truth about yourself, and that truth is always more glorious than you expect. You have a choice whether to react by emotionally shutting down or by seeing it from a higher perspective.

What masks are you wearing?

The Tower can bring great healing. It lifts you out of the stagnation of your life and liberates you from old patterns that have become your prison. If you are in control of your mind and can let yourself ride the change without fighting it, The Tower is a gift of refreshing water after a long journey. The real challenge of The Tower is to be prepared to let go of what has kept you safe. If you hold on to those things, you allow your prison to stand.

When all pretence falls away, who are you?

The Tower is what happens to you when you’ve clung on to things, people, attitudes or beliefs way past their sell-by date. It is a time to release and let go of what you have been clinging onto for so long. It really is not healthy for you.


The tarot card for the weekend is The Tower. This is very telling. The Tower points to Uranus and Uranus stations direct on Sunday after 5 months in retrograde through the late degrees of Aries. So the influence of Uranus astrologically directs our emphasis within the runes. On Friday, Venus trines the North Node and Mercury trines Uranus. On Saturday, the Sun sextiles Neptune and on Sunday, Uranus stations. Uranus at this point is telling us that the upheavals of the past five months have been like an internal revolution within the very fabric of our selfhood. Who did you imagine that you were? And how has that changed fundamentally since, through the challenges that have had to be overcome?

As Uranus stations, prepare for two months of encountering some sort of disruption, not within you, but in terms of challenges to structures all around you. We will see this politically too. How you have worked your own ‘stuff’ will define how you respond to this external stuff – e.g. with relative composure, or by becoming unsettled. This is the test of your growth. The healing of these trials will be in earnest between the 18th February and the 6th of March. So there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

Runescope for 2019Friday’s rune is Nauthiz and this rune is about necessity and how we both face trial and test and overcome it, thus prevailing over our own darkness. We can call this ‘compulsion to grow’. Mercury trine Uranus suggests that it is time to put your money where your mouth is and embody all the changes, in such a way that you speak your truth without bitterness or recourse to blame. Hurt has affected you but you have grown beyond it. Yet you may still choose to indulge your pain. Venus trine the North Node hints that the areas involved could involve love-based conflicts and disruptions that have laid you low, ever since August. Things can shift starting now in ways you thought impossible.



Saturday’s rune is Eihwaz and this rune represents initiation into higher consciousness. It also has a protective function and is reminiscent of the spiritual power of the shaman. Since the Sun is sextile Neptune, today is a day when you are called upon to ensure that you harness power properly. We can be unsettled profoundly by unexpected events. We can turn in the direction of self-medicating or denial or many forms of self-harming expression. You need to be aware today that should something come out of the blue that is shocking in some way, you are prepared and see it as the test that it is. You cannot fake real growth. If there is anything unhealed or bitter left within you from the work of Uranus within your personality structure, you may get caught out today. Remember that the theme for you now is rising above all the old triggers, all the old pain, all the old false quests for love and acceptance. This is now all about being you and JUST you.


Runescope for 2019Sunday brings Elhaz, as Uranus stations. Elhaz is the bridge between the worlds of gods and men/women. This is consciousness being elevated. This is you taking on board a completely different response to your world. The demands of this time are very pressing for people and at the start of 2019, it is vital that you realign with the highest possible expression of your healthiest way of being. Today you must avoid being incited into base responses. You may find yourself undergoing provocation. Resist retaliation. Many in the world are full of rage now as they find it impossible to purge their hearts of bitterness, rage, and malice. These energies have been stored up a long time and must now be released. Elhaz offers you protection as long as you are prepared to release your pain, from the deepest levels of your being, rooted in past injustices. True stability comes once you have weathered all the tests. A new peace can become yours today but you must decline the old ways and leave them behind. Life is asking you to move beyond your old limits. Do one act today that signals that intent.
