Goodbye, 2018. You have been good to us, but we can’t wait to see what 2019 brings. In fact, we’re so kiasu that we had to look at our horoscopes forecast for the year ahead. Here’s how it’ll be like on the career front.
Aries – March 21 to April 19
An Aries’ career steps into the spotlight this year, which is good news for the fiery sign. You may feel enriched with a new sense of positivity and optimism when it comes to your career. Indeed, this year, you can look forward to making progress and implementing positive changes in your work life. You have been blessed with the energy to handle the challenges that will come your way. In fact, this year may be the most enjoyable year of work for you as you bring up the energy of those around you. So get ready to enjoy the new year! Remember, your efforts will pay off for you. However, you must put in that effort to begin with.
Taurus – April 20 to May 20
As Uranus changes houses and signs this year, you may experience many more changes and turnovers in your life. Your career is one place of significance as you may feel change most heavily there. While Taurus is often a sign content to stay the same, this year you must learn to embrace both the positive and difficult changes in your career. You may at first feel out of depth with new responsibilities or even workloads, but learn to make any work your own. Remember that you are already equipped with all the skills and knowledge. You can win people over and be a beacon in the workplace. All you have to do is focus and take action.
Gemini – May 21 to June 21
Career plays a big part in a Gemini’s life this year. It can affect many other areas of your life. Another sign emboldened by the energy of the new year, you will find you’re like a whole new person stepping back into work, and that your energy never really dipped. Right now, you’re ready to grip the working bull by the horns and take charge. Be careful though, as your excitement may cause you to scatter yourself. You must learn to focus. Push your energy into making one project spectacular instead of several mediocre ones. Look to bring in people over to your point of view. Having like-minded colleagues will only further your fire.
Cancer – June 22 to July 22
Stepping out from last year, this year aims to slowly bring out the best you have to offer. Last year may have been difficult for you to step out into the spotlight. You may think this is the time to relax, but now is the time to step up more than ever. This is your chance to put your best foot forward and make sure that everyone can see you at your peak. However, make sure that you play your cards close to your chest. This is a good period for many signs and competition may be rife. Those who work at home, where competition is greatly lessened, may find this to be one of the most successful years for you.
Leo – July 23 to Aug 22
Many fire signs blaze and burn brightly in 2019. Leo is no exception. With your path lit in burning positivity and success, take comfort in knowing you have the capacity to succeed. You can help increase this capacity by going to learn new skills or gain new knowledge. Students will find a new clarity when it comes to studying or examinations. Older Leos can benefit from the same energy through courses, workshops or personal study. Use what you have learned to the benefit of yourself and others. Sharing knowledge is a great way to bring people closer and help you form strong connections in the workplace. These connections can help you in future.
Virgo – Aug 23 to Sept 22
The year greatly favours Virgo, especially when it comes to work. You are a natural professional and this year, your brilliance shines through in how you handle work. Both working and student Virgos may find that their concentration levels are enhanced this year. Use this clarity and newfound energy to excel this year. Lean on your practicality, logical reasoning and rationality to help you get through heavy workloads or rough patches. There may come times when the work may pull down your mood, but soldier through them and you will find that the future is always brighter. This is a good time to consider expansion or taking on courses that encourage personal or external growth.
Libra – Sept 23 to Oct 22
2019 graces many air signs with blessings and fortunes, however, you will need to learn to step over the line you have drawn for yourself. Your optimistic and adventurous attitude will help lead you over that line. Though this year may be bumpy, you will have a clearer outlook on what you need to do to help advance your career. At times, your motivation may wane, but remember what is driving you towards your goals. It is important that you never give up and always persevere. Once you do, you will be able to obtain your goals and much more. Doing what you enjoy in work is favoured this year. A bored Libra is not a productive Libra.
Scorpio – Oct 23 to Nov 21
Many a Scorpio understand the importance of not being too fast and loose with their ideas. This year promises to be a competitively charged time. This makes Scorpio’s skill for secrecy and tact even more valuable. These skills will help you survive the competitive transition many other signs are going through. This doesn’t mean you should see everyone as rivals though. Actually, this is a good time to spot and bring talents over to your side. Forming proper networks with prospering signs will aid you in climbing higher, though you may find that your workload will increase alongside this. The choices you make now promise to have significant impact in the long term.
Sagittarius – Nov 22 to Dec 21
Sagittarius is in for a busy, busy time. This is a period of transition and change. Sagittarians may find their time torn between both family and work life. This may lead to you having to make difficult decisions on where to spend your time and effort, and will require a change of schedules or restructuring of plans. Your time will be tight, but you will be able to work around them with some careful planning and effort. Having a general plan can be more useful than you know, and help you balance out both your personal and work life. Do not feel disheartened by the year stretching out your time — there is much to come in terms of success if you only put in the effort.
Capricorn – Dec 22 to Jan 19
Many signs enter work with a new refreshed and energised attitude. Luckily, Capricorns also benefit from this energy when it comes to their career. The ever-professional Capricorn is ready to look over and hone their skill set during this year. You may feel an urge to learn something new or refine what you already know. You want to make sure that you are completely ready for the year ahead. Fortune smiles on you this year, allowing you to achieve these goals and develop further. Solo projects or one-on-one courses will work out the best for you this year, or anything that will allow you to completely showcase your skill set and range. This is your year to shine, Capricorns.
Aquarius – Jan 20 to Feb 18
While many other signs experience changes and transitions almost immediately from the beginning of the year, Aquarians may be left a little frustrated. Ironically, while it is one of the best signs fit for change, you will have to be a little patient to experience these changes. It may take some time, but eventually you will begin to feel the positive affects that 2019 has to offer in the later half of the year. Until then, it is best to keep your head down and avoid troubles or conflicts. Aquarians who are self employed may feel this positivity and freedom much sooner. Working with people is favoured this year. Aquarians are naturally sociable and nowhere else, but work, does this shine the most.
Pisces – Feb 19 to March 20
Pisces individuals were just getting started last year when it comes to work, and their energy is strengthened this year. You want to succeed in work, not only financially, but also emotionally and creatively. You want to put your best foot forward and truly make something of yourself. This may be difficult depending on the amount of restrictions or rules placed on you. Thus, those who are freelancers, self-employed or are able to work from home may find the most joy and progress this month. If not, you should look to negotiate for projects or opportunities where you can control the boundaries you have. Now is a prosperous time for expansion and growth.
