Horoscopes 2019

LIBRA (23 Sep – 22 Oct)

It’s a brilliant month for achieving long-term goals as well as finances. You’ve worked hard and taken all the right steps towards manifesting your dreams. It’s time to reap the rewards this October, or sometime in the near future. If you’re a working parent, time spent between work and family will reach an equilibrium. It’s not something that would have just happened; rather, it’s the result of your endeavours towards making it happen.

SCORPIO (23 Oct – 21 Nov)

You’re in an enviable position. You possess a carefree innocence, without a care in the world in pursuing what you want. Obviously, being a Scorpio, you aren’t the kind to do things on a whim. You would be fully aware of what you’ll be getting yourself into, and confident enough to see through any adversities. These are qualities coveted by many, and they may put you in a position where you face stiff competition or objections from the parties involved. So, do you fight this through or do you allow competition and objection to win?

SAGITTARIUS (22 Nov – 21 Dec)

You’re seeking a solution for your dilemma of managing your family, your partner and children, and having a career at the same time. It may seem like a catch-22 situation, but you need to begin to look at possibilities instead of focusing on the obstacles and the limitations of your circumstances. There is always a way around things. You may be struggling to see it now, but it will come about when you shift your perspective towards being more open and positive rather than thinking of all the ways it will never work.

CAPRICORN (22 Dec – 19 Jan)

It’s a month of creating. There is an energy of abundance around you to make things happen. However, Rome wasn’t built in a day. And it took many people to create something of such grandeur. You are onto a colossal project yourself – a first ever for you. This will require you to work with people that you may not have been able to work with in the past. Still, you have matured emotionally and are now in a place where you can set aside those old feelings and be professional. There is a lot to gain from this venture; it will be a long and arduous one, but well worth the effort.

AQUARIUS (20 Jan – 18 Feb)

It’s time to pull yourself out of the gutter this month. Enough of wallowing in self-pity because of your past circumstances. The good news is you will begin to gain some clarification and understanding about why things happened the way they have – it’ll be a dawning or realisation that letting go is the best solution for moving forward. Expect a transition in your career, the place you live, or relationships. Take this experience as a rite of passage of leaving behind what you know so well and moving into the unknown.

PISCES (19 Feb – 20 Mar)

You have focused determination to see through your visions this month. Nothing can sway you. You seem to have everything under control. Your strong mindset, empathy and fierce disposition will make sure you stick to your plan. Sheer resolution to improve your status in life or your career will leave you stopping at nothing to see things happen. You seem to have all the elements you need to carve out the future in your mind. So, use your tools to calculate the best moves possible.

ARIES (21 Mar – 19 Apr)

It’s time to let go and move forward. If things haven’t gone your way, it’s not worth wallowing in self-pity. You would only be holding yourself back from achieving better things. Clear out the disappointments and heartache so you can make room for positive changes. Learn to manage your expectations as well. That would probably have been the reason for your upset in the first place. Do what you feel like for others and not because you expect something in return for your actions. What goes around will come around. So, if it didn’t go as planned this time, it will when the time is right for you.

TAURUS (20 Apr – 20 May)

Hard work certainly pays off this month. You are fully in charge and in control of your path. The decisions you make will determine your success. A clear head is what you’ll need, and making objective decisions will triumph over emotional ones. Opportunities will be in abundance. Help will be available, so be open in receiving it as you see fit. The time will come when you will be of help to others. A nice flow of giving and receiving will be established this October. Set your ego aside and participate in the exchange and the rewards will be generous.

GEMINI (21 May – 20 Jun)

You could either face your haters and trolls this month or walk away from them. The latter is always an easier option, but is it the best option? It would work out better in the long run if you stuck it out and faced your demons. Fight your corner and stand up for what you think is the truth. There will always be people around you to take you down from your high horse, be it now or later. It’s just the way people are. The “real ones” will stick around while the rest fall like dead flies. It’s a testing time, but persevere and the sun will shine again.

CANCER (21 Jun – 22 Jul)

Be open this October, and feel free in expressing yourself. This relaxed demeanour will allow you to trust your heart and go where it takes you. Opportunities will arise to express your creativity either in the form of a new project or hobby. Have no fear, just a love for life and wanting to live it to your fullest. You may meet a partner to possibly run a business with – someone who is objective but willing to see through your flight of fancy. It all starts with a dream, anyway. But, coupled with the right partnership and hard work, you will actually realise your dream.

LEO (23 Jul – 22 Aug)

Life-altering changes await this month. It’s easy to get carried away and romanticise on an idea – like becoming the world’s most celebrated artist, for example. But the truth of the matter is that we all have bills at the end of the day, and it’s no good dreaming if it can’t provide a means to an end. Having said that, do not let it be a deterrent to pursuing your desires. Make a plan for transition, where you’re able to establish yourself slowly in your new pursuit and eventually feel confident in moving away from monotony. Take a slowly-but-surely approach and you should be fine.

VIRGO (23 Aug – 22 Sep)

You may be the giver or receiver of financial help this month. This may be centred around the family. It could be a token of help to start someone off on their journey of self-improvement – perhaps a loan for them to further their studies or do a training course. Or maybe you could employ a family member, if you are a business owner, or assist them in gaining employment. This definitely builds familial harmony and everyone seems to be in good spirits as a result of this act of generosity |
