You may have your plans sorted for NYE, but do you know what the stars hold in store for you when the new year begins?
Mars enters Aries on the evening of the 31st, lighting our inner fires. We’re ready to get this party started, but there’s a catch. We will also have a waning moon in Scorpio, which could cause our emotions to take a turn for the dramatic.
In general, waning moons are best for wrapping up projects, so this phase is perfectly timed with the new year. Saturn, the planet of responsibility and rules, will conjoin with the sun, the planetary ruler of our personalities and egos. Unless you’ve been chomping at the bit to go out, you might find more pleasure in staying and making a list of goals for 2019. Read on to find out what awaits your sign this NYE!
Aries March 21 to April 19
There’s nothing like a fresh slate, Aries. Mars, your planetary ruler, will be moving back into his own house on the evening of the 31st! He’s ready to help you get fired up for the new year and will stay in your sign until Valentine’s Day. You’re going to need to burn off some of that excitement, so get out of the house to celebrate.
The moon will be waning in Scorpio, putting siblings and parents on edge, as she rules your home and family life. Avoid drumming up conflict at home — you’re better off shaking your tail feather with friends! But, before you let loose that evening, tidy up your surroundings to start on a positive note. It’s been an intense year, and you’re ready to move on to bigger and brighter things.
