Here we are again on the threshold of a new year. As we peer into the future with wonderment, we cast our eyes to the stars hoping conditions will favour fulfilment and happiness. Looking inward, the power of meditation cannot be underestimated. It's your connection to the source that guides you. It is within you and it holds you safely, wrapping its protective arms around you. You are enveloped in a cocoon of safety and love. The stars help us translate the unconscious messages we are receiving from our inner selves.

All the planets have retrograde cycles when they appear to move backwards. A crucial one we need to work with is the Mercury retrograde. He is the Master of Strategy and was know as Hermes in ancient Greece. His retrograde cycle takes place once every 4 months. It will occur three times in 2019. The first is from March 5 to March 28. The second is from July 7 to August 1 and the last one will run from October 31 to November 20. Mark these dates in your calendar. These are transitional periods of time where you can make corrections in your strategies and receive unexpected opportunities. Mercury is your representative – your personal strategist.

Jupiter, aka Zeus, is the Great Benefactor. His influence brings wisdom, self-understanding and adventure. He will spend nearly all of 2019 in the action-sign of Sagittarius. You'll be feeling a passionate drive to achieve dreams you've kept on the back-burner because of worldly responsibilities. Jupiter's retrograde cycle will run for four months from April 10 to August 11. What you are chasing after now as 2019 gets underway will reach an important point with Jupiter's retrograde.

At that time, you will see your goal off in the distance like a shimmering mirage. That will be a crucial time for you. For the next four months you'll be making preparations and building the ground work of an opportunity that will take off after early August. You'll find that Jupiter is high-lighted in your year ahead horoscope. Why? It's because Jupiter is the captain of your spaceship. He's leading you to exotic parts unknown.

In his journey this year, he will form a dynamic connection to the planet of compassion and spirituality i.e. Neptune. Watch how your intuition blossoms this year. Your third eye will see through the obfuscation of the physical world. The feminine principle that rules right-brain consciousness of creativity and imagination is rising. Get ready for a wonderful ride of adventure and the growth of your ability to carve out the future of your dreams.
