The Partial Solar Eclipse January 5th/6th

Let's look a little closer at the January 5th eclipse. Notice right away there is a strong focus in Capricorn. No less than five planets and the South Lunar Node occupy that sign. Zeroing in, it also becomes clear that Saturn and Pluto are conjunct the eclipse, bringing with them their own particular brand 0f energies. Saturn wants to make it 'real' and Pluto wants to infuse it with power. So, whatever you are intending on this New Moon Eclipse, it wants to be deep, meaningful and have weight. Consequence. Go for a powerful desire this time round.

The Lunar Eclipse January 20th/21st

The second eclipse in January is the lunar or full moon eclipse where we lean toward letting go. Releasing and allowing. This full moon is, of course, conjunct the Lunar Node (as that's what makes it an eclipse).  It is also conjunct Mercury, messenger of the gods and Pluto, lord of transformation. It's possible that what you let go of now, a toleration, belief, habit, will have potent, far reaching results. Check the video if you aren't sure 'where' to find this event in your own chart. You'll be looking for the opposite houses that contain 1° Leo and 1° Aquarius.

The glyphs look like this:

The main thing to remember as you pre-pave this energy for 2019 is that we initiate on the solar eclipse and release on the Lunar. And always, keep an ear out for the messages the eclipse season brings. Go through the keyword list below for ideas, or delve deeper into the houses by joining the Open (our Members only) GVA Form.

Chinese New Year of the Pig 2019

Pig 2019 - Schwart
Year of the Pig 2019 - Schwart

Welcome the Chinese New Year of the Pig 2019.

Chinese New Year of the Pig 2019 Times
New Moon @ 15 Aquarius
LA - Feb 4 - 1:04 pm
NY - Feb 4 - 4:04 pm
LON - Feb 4 - 9:04 pm
SYD - Feb 5 - 8:04 am

In Chinese Astrology, the new year falls on the second New Moon after the solstice. Depending on where you are in the world, this year it's February 4th/5th. And yes, it coincides with the Aquarius New Moon which becomes an event chart for the next twelve months. We'll look more at that chart below, but first, a little intro to the sign of the Pig.

Eclipse Activation Alert

As a side note, the new moon prior to this one is an eclipse on January 5th at 15 Capricorn. Because of the timing of eclipses, the 'message' can be delivered one month before, or one month after, so be aware. For you, this Aquarius New Moon might pack the power of the last eclipse!

The Sign of the Pig 2019

With Chinese Astrology, the Pig is associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) hài (亥), and the hours 9–11 in the night. In terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Pig is yin. And, in Chinese culture, pigs symbolize wealth, abundance, easygoing approach and a generous perspective.  Pigs are the 'actions speak louder than words' sign and DO what they say, completing projects and tasks. They are practical, loyal, Earthy (like Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) and not afraid of 'hands-on'. Sensual and appreciative of the five senses, they know how to treat themselves well, fueling creativity with practical things like good food, good company, exercise and the fresh outdoors.

Leaning toward accomplishment, they are able to handle power, stepping up as leaders though they can take care of mundane responsibilities as well. Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune though they can be Zen about their life circumstances, taking responsibility for their own well-being. You don't often see them pointing a finger!

Serene, optimistic and fun, you can be the year of the Pig 2019 is something to celebrate.

Sign by Sign Horoscopes for Year of the Pig 2019

Each sign of the Western Zodiac will have a different response in the New Year of the Pig 2019, according to where this Aquarius New moon falls. Also notice that because the signs run in twelve-year cycles, they match up, more or less, with the cycle of Jupiter. For example, many Pigs born any time this century will have Jupiter in Sagittarius, which certainly goes with the buoyant, energetic, happy-go-lucky vibe of the Pig.

Let's look at how each sign can align with the energy of the Pig 2019.

AriesARIES 

The Ram can have a very social time in the year of the Pig 2019. Spirits are lifted when in a group situation, with friends or the home tribe. Aries will want to lead though, so find ways to put yourself in the spotlight. It's no time to be shy. This is a great year to release resistance to adventure. You will want to travel. Watch for contrasts and prickles in relationships. Instead of falling into a default response with potential discord to follow, ask yourself what you really want in terms of partnership and do whatever it takes to create that. This is the year where you own responsibility for your own well-being.

TaurusTAURUS 

The sign of the bull shares characteristics with the Chinese Pig, especially the earthy nature and easy-going vibe. Taureans will find this year more productive, creative and sensual than usual. It's good for proposing new projects, launching a career or changing to a new profession or calling. Whatever your mission in life, you'll be able to go for it with fresh enthusiasm. Great for your public identity. The only proviso is honesty. You'll need to be scrupulous in all your dealings, with a fully transparent attitude. Avoid any collaborations that have even a wiff of 'under the table' dealings. They won't stay hidden for long. If you're looking for a new partner, this is your year! Go for it.

GeminiGEMINI

The Twins in the year of the Pig will feel lucky, strong and resilient. The focus is on expansion of some kind, higher education, travel, philosophies or artistic pursuits that take you places you've never been before. To spice it up, it looks like you won't be going on these new horizon journeys alone. Whether a biz partner, artistic collaboration or romance, you won't have any trouble finding a plus one, if that's what you want. Though the year of the Pig 2019 is practical in some way, you will want to maintain a sense of the carefree. If it doesn't make you feel lighter than air, it's not for you. Your only caution is overindulgence. Avoid it for the best health outcomes.

CancerCANCER

Crabs come out of their shells in the year of the Pig. This is a time to embrace your strengths, both emotional and physical. You may want to work out, train in a mind-body-spirit discipline, martial art, weights, yoga, swimming, running, tennis. You decide, but the benefits of being in your best shape ever are multiple. You'll own your power and leadership qualities, stand up for your choices in the face of challenge, and find more authentic relationships - because you're being more authentic yourself. As always, food, comfort, artistry and nutrition are all-important, but this year a hobby or pastime could turn into a new, and lucrative, income stream.

LeoLEO 

Whatever creative projects you are planning for 2019, the Pig energy is going to be supportive on all levels. From finding an agent, collaborator, biz partner, financial backer, loan officer or funding agency, to reaching the audience you are after, the clients, the job offers, this year rocks. The only concern, at this time, is forgetting about your day to day practical needs. That includes body care like skipping meals, working all hours and generally not listening to internal signals. You can't live so wild and extreme that you ignore the little things that support well-being. This goes for romance as well. Don't expect relationships to run on autopilot this year.

Virgo VIRGO 

Because you are an Earth sign, the year of the Pig 2019 is a strong one for you. Expect income and finances to improve, mainly because you are able to catch problems before they happen and make necessary adjustments. Children may play a larger part in your life, more than you expected, but that goes for other creative projects too. Romance is in the air, and the more you can maintain the feeling of 'delightful uncertainty' the better. This is not a time to nail things down with commitments and contracts. Find the joy in the lightness of being and abundance will follow. It's about trusting your choices, and your heart.

LibraLIBRA 

Communication is going to surprise you this year. It's like suddenly everyone guy and their dog is listening to what you have to say. Hanging on your words, even. Whether you are a speaker, teacher, blogger, writer, coach, counselor, professor or performer, the year of the Pig 2019 brings new ideas, a fresh voice and supporters who are willing to notice what you have to say. Great for publishing, traditional or electronic, this is the year you reach a wider audience with whatever it is you do. Maybe there is one special someone you would like more attention from? In the words of Jane Austin, “Let us never underestimate the power of a well-written letter.”

ScorpioSCORPIO 

For Scorpio, the year of the Pig brings practical inclinations, beginning with the home. The drive might be to buy a new place, relocate or build/repair/remodel. In a way, this is a metaphor for work that you do on yourself this year. The focus is internal and you will need a sense of your own sanctuary, no matter what your living situation. Likewise, you'll need some emotional space where you can process the changes going on inside you. Partnership and live-in companions require sensitive handling, mainly because you'll be feeling a little restless or edgy. For the best results, communicate. Tell them what is happening. It's not a year to keep people guessing.

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS

Likely, you'll find this a year where you want to expand intellectually, taking new courses, leveling up credentials or going for training/edu in a whole new area of life. It's exhilarating, this launch into something new-for-you but there are a few cautions to keep in mind. Don't forget your family or tribe in the midst of it all. A sibling or cousin especially could need help and if you're too self-focused, you'll miss the cues. Optimism is sky high, and that's awesome, but check in, from time to time, to your accessibility. This is a busy year and it might be easy to get caught up in outcome more than the journey. You want to make each day a delight.

CapricornCAPRICORN

The year of the Pig 2019 is one to love what you do or change it. No exceptions. The earthy sign of the Sea-goat is similar in some ways to the Pig but one thing Pig can teach you is to love life. Every moment of it. It's not enough to make the money, meet the deadlines, fulfill the obligations. The question you must ask is, "Where is my highest joy?" If the answer isn't in what you are already doing, how you are 'being' then be ready for major changes in that department. In case you aren't sure how to evaluate this mindset, turn to your core values. What are they and are you living them to the fullness of your heart's desire?

AquariusAQUARIUS 

This is the most important new moon of the year and as it ushers in the year of the Pig, there are some things for you to face. Quite possibly, you are already on the path, feeling confident, abundant, appreciative and optimistic. If so, carry on. But if not, you'll need to have a long, slow, honest look at yourself and the life you lead. Fortunately, Pig energy has a wide and generous perspective, with all the support in the world for helping you make improvements in your life if you need to. Friends, in particular, are ready to lend a hand, so reach out, ask for help and amp up your receiving skills so you can fully benefit when the good times roll.

piscesPISCES

If ever there was a year for you to work your magic, this is it. Pisces dreams the 'impossible 'dreams and Pig will gladly help you bring them to fruition. In the past, it may have been enough to have the idea, the sketch, the scene, the outline, the riff, the concept, but not now. This is your year of bringing it down to earth, manifesting your big dreams now. Shed any reluctance like an old skin and embrace the renewal and strength of vision that settles over this year. Large or small, whatever it is you hold in your thoughts is fair game for reality. Think of yourself as Midas with the golden touch, sans nasty consequences. Go forth and make it so!

The New Year is nigh, the perfect time to Pre-Pave your desires with Astrology 2019. It all starts with awareness, so let's begin.

If you missed the live call, listen to the recording here:

The chat log with links to the charts we talked about.

How to Pre-Pave with Astrology 2019

Pre-paving, simply put, happens when we see (and feel) things going a certain way before they occur. We do it all the time, consciously or unconsciously, like before we open the bills, head to the dentist, apply for a job or pitch a new project. Think of it as your 'set-up' and expectations before starting something new.

There are usually two ways to pre-pave. One is unconscious and often contains fear and dread, as in: "Oh no. This is going to cost a fortune!" The other is conscious and purposefully creative/positive, as in: "I can make this payment with plenty of change to spare."

Whichever mindset, the thought will pave the path, no exceptions. Here are some detailed examples from Jeannette on How to Pre-Pave for Manifesting Success.

Now, the question is, how to leverage the Astrology 2019 for the best year ever? Let's look at some of the key astrological events coming up and see where they fit into your chart. There will be more posts, calls and discussions on the GVA Forum, but the first one is scheduled for December 18th/19th. Details & Discussion Here! All are welcome.

Astrology 2019 Eclipses

Think of an eclipse as a super potent new or full moon. To occur, they must be in alignment with the North and South Lunar nodes, meaning the universe is lining up events that put you on your Path. Eclipses break up logjams, situations that are stagnate an no longer serving our greatest expansion. They are often a wild ride, bring life to a crises point of some kind. They come at peak times of change, decision making and crossroads, bearing messages from the gods. Intuition is heightened, along with instincts and the ability to act. We might see the end of an era on some level and the beginning of a whole new way of being.

Know that eclipses always come in pairs with a new moon or solar eclipse initiating something fresh and innovative. Following that, there is the corresponding full moon or lunar eclipse where we let go of the old ways of thinking.

For now, it's enough to note what houses are involved. They show you WHERE change is happening so you can pre-pave what thrills you the most. As the year unfolds, we'll be doing calls on the eclipses to help you get into alignment with what you want. Check back here for more info on each one.

Quick Eclipse Tips

The eclipse means the moon is conjunct the North Lunar Node and opposite the sun/South Node. Symbolically, it’s a time of culmination and release.

Expect some emotional cleansing, the ‘good for the soul’ kind. You might also find something you’ve been waiting for arrives – the news, the green light, the big opportunity, and if not, you understand where, how, when and why it’s time to regroup. Either way, see it as a msg that progress is possible, and it is! The focus might well be on relationship and there could be a big CHARGE that needs releasing. You could see the light in terms of how to live your connections in a more fulfilling-to-you way.

Remember, if you want to improve your relationships ‘out there’ in the world, improve your relationship to yourself. It all begins with you.

How to go with the wild flow of this eclipse?

First, release those ‘tolerations’. Here’s how Jeannette Maw describes them:

To tolerate something means to “allow the existence of, to permit or endure or put up with something.” This implies that the something (or someone) is less than ideal and tends to drain a person’s energy. Thus, a toleration is often a hindering influence to the vibration. More . . .

Rainer Maria Rilke puts it like this:

It is not inertia alone that is responsible for human relationships repeating themselves from case to case, indescribably monotonous and unrenewed: it is shyness before any sort of new, unforeseeable experience with which one does not think oneself able to cope. But only someone who is ready for everything, who excludes nothing, not even the most enigmatic, will live the relation to another as something alive.

Go to your chart now and identify which houses are activated by this eclipse, especially the T-Square from Uranus (as discussed on the vid). Those are the areas of like where you can decluter, release, let go and move on, and have eyes for the gifts. Things get exciting, edge even, and take you on your way! Go with it, and evolve.
