January Forecast

Happy New Year! The January monthly forecast 2019 brings in the New Year with a bang because this is also an eclipse month. For the YouTube forecast (To be posted), I will look at how the two eclipses will affect your sign as that is the major feature of January. However, there is also a delightful amalgamation of a Yod and a grand trine that looks like a big fat diamond on January 21. This also happens to be the evening of the Solar Eclipse day. Ordinarily, I wouldn’t make such a big deal out of it as it is the fast-moving Moon that forms the focal point of the Yod and is the completion of the grand trine. But this fleeting vision of geometric magic happens on the same day as Venus conjunct Jupiter in Sagittarius. This gorgeously romantic conjunction usually only happens once a year, but sometimes it can happen twice or even three times due to retrogrades (in 2015). This year we get it twice (Again on November 24). This wonderful conjunction is extra special because Jupiter is super powerful in its own sign and endows Venus with even more love and luxury than it normally would.

Venus and Jupiter are both aligned with the star Ras Algethi. Robson says generally that, this star; “If in good aspect, (Which it is!) it is supposed to give much enjoyment and favors from women….by its very Mars nature, Ras Algethi corresponds to boldness and a drive to gain power.” Bernadette Brady has a meaning Venus with Ras Algethi as “Insightful in the use of money, or colour or personal appearances. A person with a broad network of friends and/or lovers. The status quo is maintained.” [1] with Jupiter Brady says “A person who promotes a more naturalistic approach to life. To strongly believe in a particular way of living; the preacher. The need to restore balance; the need to fill a power vacuum.” [1]


Venus and Jupiter are THE great benefics and they are also the brightest planets in the sky after the luminaries. So together they are the best of the best. This is a fantastic conjunct for weddings or any event that needs all the luck it can get. It is also extremely indulgent and pleasure orientated so maybe not the best for things like operations. If you want to construct an election chart for this event, try to have Sagittarius rising with these two lovebirds on the ascendant! It should be superbly lucky. The fact these are trine mars makes them passionate and sexy too, while with the moon on Dubhe it is protective and nurturing. Saturn sextile Neptune on priestly Achernar makes the Yod zealous but also spiritual. It has a nice balance of mysticism (Neptune) and grounded, prudent, authority. (Saturn strong in Capricorn) All in all, this aspect pattern is just great for a priest and priestess duo working together as spiritual warriors, like a John and Joan of Arc. I wonder if a couple will set up a free-speech alternative to either Twitter, Facebook, Patreon or YouTube since so many Alt News channels have been de-monetised or YouTubers made into non-persons due to the nebulous “hate-speech” laws.

January Aspect Pattern ~ The Diamond

january 2019 forecast

When Venus was conjunct Jupiter back in July 2015, gay marriage was made legal in the USA, so I do think this conjunction is very much associated with marriage and beneficial mergers or partnerships of all kinds. Both planets are about wealth, money and status too, but bear in mind they are at odds with spiritual Neptune since they are square this planet in the diamond also. Projects that are not purely based on material gain will do well, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be profitable. It’s just that the money will come as an unexpected bonus. Labours of love (Ras Algethi in Hercules) will be handsomely rewarded.

The other square is Mars square Saturn which links the two malefics in the diamond. So this really is a complex pattern of positives and negatives. A LOT of spiritual evolution and progress can be made this month with the eclipses and this fabulous diamond. So expect to see the Yellow Vest protests ramp up and I think metamorphosize into something that we could never have dreamt of. I do wonder how much of the “Yellow Vests” is organic and how much contrived. Sometimes grassroots movements are indeed hijacked by the matrix controllers for their own ends. However, who’s to say that it can’t work the other way around?
