The big changes in store for your zodiac signs

Susan Miller’s story is one of pure destiny. Since birth, she always tackled the odds against her head on. She was born with a birth defect in her leg which perplexed doctors. To save her leg a procedure was performed leaving Miller paralyzed from the knee down. She spent most of her youth in and out of hospitals and physical therapy facilities. At age 14 she was eager to learn when she would be free of the leg and hip braces. It was at this time she began to be groomed in astrology by her late mother, Erika Redl Trentacoste, known to readers as “Little Mom.”

Miller recovered and decided to help others. She founded her website Astrology Zone back in December of 1995. On the website Miller writes more than 48,000 words monthly. She includes comprehensive monthly forecasts for every zodiac sign free-of-charge routinely published on the first of the month. Miller also established the highly successful app, Daily AstrologyZone by Susan Miller,

This month, AstrologyZone serves 100 million page views to 6 million unique readers, turns 23. To celebrate, on December 7, 2018 Miller is releasing a bookazine titled “The Year Ahead 2019,” with more than one hundred pages on 2019 astrological aspects including in-depth reads of what is in store for each sign.

Recognized as the most accurate astrologist in the world, I spoke with Miller to find out what is in store for us. She said it is expected to be one of the most change-harboring years in recent decades.

Will Loschiavo: With all of the astrological changes taking place in 2019, is it going to be a more fated year?

Susan Miller: 2019 will be more productive than 2018. We endured a plethora of retrogrades throughout 2018. Mars retrograde is exceptionally rough. It is very difficult to lift off anything important and quite strenuous when it comes to accomplishing major goals. Couple the aforesaid with the three back-to-back challenging eclipses we experienced throughout the summer which were all two weeks apart.

Sagittarius is actually doing really well

In December 2017, Saturn entered Capricorn after a three-year extended stay in Sagittarius. With Saturn out of the picture and with Jupiter now in Sagittarius, is the archer finally going to be out of that rough period they endured?

SM: Oh they certainly are! Although Saturn left Sagittarius one year ago, they have still been experiencing troubles with money. They wish the money were better. Fortunately, everything will improve, and even the money will straighten out. What Sagittarius is doing now will bring them what they have been working for. Sagittarius is actually doing really well, better than they think they are doing. They should stick with the program so to speak. I can see what is happening underneath the surface. Although Sagittarius may feel they are working hard and nothing is improving, they are very close to the curtain going up on their lives. This is good.

Capricorns have been exposed in the news as of late because they are being tested 

In January 2019 we have an unusual situation with six planets in Capricorn. Saturn is also in Capricorn undergoing the test period Sagittarius previously endured. What does it mean kicking off 2019 with so much Capricorn energy?

SM: Capricorn is caution. For example, look at Brexit where you have this push for nationalism, which is sweeping across the globe as you see everyone holding tight onto what they have in their own country. There is this underlying feeling that we need to hunker down and only look out for ourselves, which I don’t agree with. Starting off the New Year with six planets in Capricorn, the climate will feel similar to the late 1980s and early 1990s, when we experienced many mergers. As long as the republicans stay in power, you will witness more mergers akin to the Ronald Reagan years where big fish eats big fish. For example, look CVS purchasing Aetna for $69 Billion. That is the tone.

Having said that, with Saturn in Capricorn, Capricorns have been exposed in the news as of late because they are being tested. Look at the men in Donald Trump’s life: Mike Flynn, Jared Kushner, Jeff Sessions, Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump, Jeff Sessions, Rod Rosenstein, Anthony Scaramucci, Betsy De Vos, Kelly Ann Conway, Steven Mnuchin and Kim Jung-Un. They are all Capricorns, they are all under great pressure and they are all being tested.

When Saturn was in Sagittarius, the publishing and broadcasting industries were heavily tested and in turn had to reinvent themselves. Now, those industries and those in such careers will blossom. This time, with Saturn in Capricorn, the financial industries will be tested.

Taurus represents money and agriculture

Uranus is moving into Taurus on March 6th 2019 to say until July 7th 2025. This is the first time since 1934-1941. Will this affect us significantly?

SM: This is an exciting period. When you have Uranus in a sign, it is where you will see the greatest innovation. Taurus represents money and agriculture. We will begin to look at money differently, as well as examine the food supply. Taurus is also a practical sign. We have Saturn in Capricorn, Pluto in Capricorn and Uranus in Taurus. These are all compatible signs. This period flows better than when Uranus was in Aries.

Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, is moving out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius on November 8, 2018 to stay for 13 months until December 2, 2019. How will each sign be affected in 2019? 

SM: I like that Jupiter is going into Sagittarius after Saturn departed Sagittarius. Saturn was in Sagittarius from December 23, 2014 to December 19, 2017. Sometimes the cycle works in reverse, where you experience the goodness first and the hardships thereafter. During this cycle we experienced the difficulty first and were tested. Now, we can reap the benefits.

Aries will have travel opportunities and the other signs….

Aries will get to travel far and wide. Jupiter is the planet of miracles, so if you do not have the money to travel, opportunities could arise through your boss sending you on a work trip, you winning a contest, etc. Aries can also use this time to go back to graduate school and receive aid.

Taurus has been worried about money and had concerns they were not saving enough. You need a nest egg. Fortunately, now the money will come in and you will feel so much more secure. Taurus will be able to save quite a bit, and some will be able to purchase a home.

Gemini is most likely to marry. If already married, you and your partner will excel. You will do well by teaming up with an agent, manager, publicist, lawyer, accountant, etc. Partnerships are favored. Gemini should not try to do things on their own, instead use this time to team up.

Cancer is going to do very well with work assignments. If self-employed, the work keeps coming. Work assignments will have legs and take you to more sophisticated projects. Health will improve. However, with Saturn opposition the Sun, Cancer needs to take care of themselves.

Leo has such a nice year ahead. With Jupiter in the 5th house of love, you can meet the love of your life. If attached, you can adopt a baby or find a surrogate to carry your baby. With Jupiter in Sagittarius, a fellow fire sign, the sky is the limit for Leo.

Virgo has been worried about their home life or taking care of a parent. This year, it goes from black to white. You will get the greenlight to move to a large spacious residence within your price range. You will also receive family support. Home and family will bring Virgo happiness.

Libra has wonderful aspects for communication. If you ever wanted to write a book, column, blog, appear on television or produce, now is the time to go for it. Libra’s sister and brother will also do well which will provide benefits.

Scorpio is in store for money. The money you earn, which will be substantial and generous, will come from meetings had between October 10, 2017 and November 7, 2018, when Jupiter was in Scorpio. Those meetings will transfer into gold. The smart money is on Scorpio.

Sagittarius is the celestial favorite! You get the cornucopia when you have Jupiter in your sign: health, wealth and love. This is one of the biggest years of your life to commit to or meet the one. All of your life goals will click into place. You will receive lucky breaks. You meet many people during your Jupiter year, many of whom want to help you in different areas of your life. Foreign people are lucky for you and you will travel to at least one foreign local. Media and broadcasting will play a strong role for Sagittarius. This applies to both Sag Sun and Sag Rising.

Capricorn is still dealing with Saturn on their Sun. You have to decide what is working for you and what is not. You have to start detaching from people and obligations you no longer feel are vital to your future. If Capricorn does not empty the basket, the universe will do it.

Aquarius will see their reputation is on the rise. If you have been experiencing difficulty finding a job, you will find one. This year it is not about what you know, but who you know. Join a professional club or a social club. This is the year for Aquarius to expand friendships.

Pisces will experience a spectacular career year. This is the best career year ever. Your name will become a household name. You have worked so hard for this and have never experienced anything like this for well over a decade. You should put all of your emphasis on your career. Pisces names are going to be in lights.

Which signs will be hit the hardest by the five eclipses?

There are five eclipses in 2019: January 5th, January 20th, July 2nd, July 16th and December 25th. Which signs will be hit the hardest by the 5 eclipses?

SM: Capricorn and Cancer will face the most. Aries and Libra are also in for some big changes as well. The eclipses in July are difficult, especially July 16, 2019. Quite frankly, none of the 2019 eclipses are exactly easy. Some are mixed in the sense that one area of your life may be flourishing while the other is in upheaval.

When you have Saturn on the Sun as does Capricorn right now, you get to choose your challenge. For example, you may purchase a home, have a baby, etc. However, when you have Saturn opposition the Sun as does Cancer right now, the universe decides what your challenge will be. When you are under pressure, you can’t be anything except yourself. Capricorns and Cancer are going to have a changed life one year from now. Aries and Libra will face challenges coupled with changes, which like it or not, are necessary. Something significant will change. In particular, Aries are being squared, and there is a tough full moon on April 19, 2019.

Nevertheless, you have to believe that change is good. It may be hard at times, but it is necessary. All of the rewards come in on December 25, 2019. This is a new moon eclipse in Capricorn on Christmas day. Generally, new moons bring opportunity, whereas full moons may or may not harbor challenges.

Which signs will benefit from the 2019 aspects the most?

SM: Pisces finally comes out from under all of the surprises with money. They endured seven years of extremely difficult times, as did Virgo, and neither could figure out why. It was not always their fault. It was just the way aspects aligned. Finally, Pisces and Virgo are out of that long period of worrying about money all of the time. 2019 is a much better outlook for them, absolutely wonderful!
