We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your monthly horoscope for January 2019.
There are big changes afoot this month and it’s not just because it’s the start of a new year. We have two game-changing eclipses, one in hardworking Capricorn (Jan 5) and one in passionate Leo (Jan 21), that will be helping to shake things up too. Overall, eclipses are important because they trigger major events that push us to grow.
And with love planet Venus entering bountiful Sagittarius at the top of the month, we can expect to experience some of that growth when it comes to our relationships and finances. Though with analytical Mercury in business-savvy Capricorn for most of the month, we’re called to make smart decisions with our cash and our hearts.
On January 20, the confident Sun enters friendly and unconventional Aquarius, putting the spotlight on community, friendship, and innovation. Happy Birthday, Aquarius!
