Happy New Year! For your 2019 tarotscope I pulled 13 cards, 12 that correspond to respective areas of human life represented as ‘houses’ in the typical astrological natal chart, and one that represents the overarching theme of 2019 for you. Given below is a diagram of a natal chart explaining the various houses so that you may have a better understanding of the cards I have pulled pertaining to each. Astrologers use this chart to divide the planets and constellations that appeared in the sky at the moment you were born in order to derive corresponding potentialities for your life in various areas. So, typically, this chart with the houses contains a map of the planets with their exact degrees as well as the zodiac constellations as they were placed starting from the one that was rising on the Eastern horizon. Please note that the house meanings given here are not an exhaustive list and therefore I may mention themes pertaining to houses that do not show up in this example graphic. Given below the chart image is your reading for 2019! May it be a good one for you!
Your 2019 Tarotscope
1st house matters: Your guiding principle this year is a positive attitude towards materialising goals and dreams. This is generally a great card to receive in this position as it indicates progress in not just your finances but also in physical goals. Whether you are invested in a body transformation or recovering from a physical-emotional setback, you will be satisfied with how you work towards it. People might also begin to recognise your expertise in a particular area and this may result in new work contracts for some of you.
2nd house matters: A new cycle begins in the area of your income and finances. Or perhaps you come into some good fortune unexpectedly. This card comes to remind you of the cyclical nature of life, that if you are in a low phase things will start to look up, and if you are in a place of prosperity, remember to save for a rainy day. Again, as in the 1st house, it looks like new work opportunities might come your way, but bear in mind they might not be lasting, therefore, you are advised to consider them as short-term options only, and generally, opt for those assignments that have shorter time-lines and modest goals.
3rd house matters: This might not be a good time for you to take on big expenses related to the purchase of vehicles or communication devices. If the tech you wish to buy is going to be an extravagance or if you feel it will aid your enterprise, think twice before taking that big step for your card suggests disappointment in this regard. Also, if you are in the business of communication and wish to launch a new website, or channel, or content stream etc., make sure all your current projects and engagements are fully complete before commencing anything new. You might have to incur some unexpected expenses in the areas mentioned at the start therefore you might want to proceed a little conservatively in related matters.
4th house matters: You might have faced a difficult decision, or found yourself mediating a conflict, at home in the recent past. Perhaps there are relatives you haven’t spoken to in a while? It looks like a stalemate of such a type is going to come to an end as you finally get bored of the problem and just make a move, any move, of some sort. Perhaps there are difficult decisions you need to make regarding where you live or about your family; perhaps you need to clear the air with someone? If you have felt emotionally blocked or icy-hearted like the Snow Queen lately, this card is a sign the thaw is coming. Keep a positive attitude for faster results. 🙂
5th house matters: Wise men say only fools rush in. If you wish to protect yourself from heartbreak or ego wounds this year, you are advised to seek an old friend’s counsel before you take any drastic steps in matters related to romance, creative work, gambling, recreation, or procreation. At the same time, if you have conducted preliminary due diligence, then you are advised to adopt a beginner’s mindset, and take a leap of faith, without over-thinking things. Since the Fool card is a zero, it signifies nothingness at the beginning of beginnings, so things can go either way for you. A balance of faith and prudence will turn any plank you are made to walk into a launching pad! New beginnings and a lightness of being are in store for you in the areas pertaining to this house for sure.
6th house matters: Mismanagement of money or imbalance in financial contribution, especially from that half of your partnership that identifies as feminine could be the source of some petty squabbles this year. There could be needless expenditure on daily luxuries. Some of you might need to get your hormonal balance checked. In general, if you are aiming to get pregnant this year you might experience some problems along the way, but since this is a Minor Arcana card it is not a permanent obstacle, just there for this year. Those of you going through divorce might find that the half identifying as female in the partnership gets the shorter stick. Look after your finances, look out for yourself. Also consult a GP to make sure your nutritional balance is in place. Some of you might go through a phase of feeling unattractive this year — you’re not!
7th house matters: It seems as if restless Gemini is opting to stay put in an unsatisfying partnership for the sake of stability, or perhaps because you feel too much was invested in this union for you to quit so easy. That is a noble sentiment indeed. Or it might be that you feel your partner is sticking around for the same reason. Either way, you seem to be in a cooperative mood this year so perhaps you will turn things around and manage to bring the passion back in a fading marriage or even business partnership. Perhaps a new project will bring a breath of fresh air! Perhaps the house requiring renovations might serve as a bonding point for the two of you. Indeed, it seems as if in your partnerships and in your legal affairs, you are realistic enough not to chase elusive ideals before at least giving what you have a fair chance.
8th house matters: There are secrets, unresolved issues, or ego wounds that need to be brought to light because it seems as if some life-changing ending or death that you experienced in your past still drags your energy down, even though you may not realise it. If you find that you forget things easier than you used to, or that you don’t have the kind of stamina that you once did, don’t blame age, it could be your mental energy being sucked away into this open vortex of sadness. Pardon the drama in the phrasing, but all of this means you need to visit a therapist, perform a cord-cutting ritual, or simply talk it out with the one who hurt you to clear your subconscious of lingering trauma. Get to the root of your pain and anxiety and you might find yourself getting a fresh lease on life in every aspect.
9th house matters: Something is coming to a grand completion in your house of higher learning, international expansion, publishing, professorship (or any role where you are the ‘priest’ or guide in esoteric or erudite matters). Perhaps an innovation of yours sells for big bucks, or perhaps your foreign citizenship comes through. Indeed, this is part of the reason why this year is a year of sticking with ongoing commitments and projects rather than seeking new avenues.
10th house matters: In matters pertaining to your dealings with the government, place in society or at the work place, relationship to authority figures, or paternalistic influences, it seems as if there is a masculine person, most likely of a Water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces), who is posing difficulties for you. They could be attention-seeking, co-dependent, or just plain manipulative, and it may have an impact on your career in some way. This could be a boss going through some emotional issues of their own. Alternatively, it could be that you find yourself forgetting information, muddling facts, and getting distracted, which could affect your work and public engagements. All of this is especially applicable if you work in a field that involves healing, nurturing, counselling, feeding, or inspiring imagination in others. Meditation is always a reliable solution for defogging your mind. And with difficult others, perhaps it is time to investigate with is really getting their goat.
11th house matters: An over-reliance on what the so-called temples of knowledge and science have to say. or alternatively, a complete rejection of their viewpoint might affect your membership in shared-interest networks. Err too much on the side of science or alternative systems and you could end up losing friends. Some of you could experience rejection from an esteemed group like Mensa or some such. For some of you, this might be a time when loads of gossip disguised as information comes through to mislead you. Be especially shrewd about which new ideas, concepts, or markets you adopt at this time as chances are high that you might be misled. Wait and watch is a good policy to verify hearsay.
12th house matters: Either you are trolling or spying on someone, or someone is trolling or spying on you. This particular card, in this particular position, in its particular orientation just screams of something nasty like espionage, but hopefully less dramatic. Beware the rumour mills that could be working behind your back. I would say that one piece of advice holds good for both, your 11th and 12th house: Guard all your information, data, PINs, banking particulars etc. especially carefully at this time. And don’t trust everything you hear or learn without adequate vetting. Also be careful about the quality of the mind-altering substances you take should you choose to.
Overall theme: A theme emerging across your houses is also punctuated by your overall card: Stick to ongoing commitments instead of taking on new investments, courses, or long-term projects. Money, resource and time management will be of utmost importance for you this year. Guard against impetuosity and offers that seem too profitable to be true.
Have a happy 2019 and see you next month with the regular monthly tarotscopes! 🙂
