What is the most important yearlong 2019 theme making an appearance for humans in January?
ANSWER: The Fool reversed
The Fool reversed has a lot going for him, but makes mistakes. Ruled by Uranus, this Major Arcana highlights a force of change causing unprecedented events to occur. Such crazy sh*t happening is arresting and can cause paralytic shock.
The best approach in this environment is not to give up in the face of weirdness, as it’s critical to be moved by a higher force to establish the next stage of civilization.
The world is becoming hella futuristic with the possibility for dystopia, utopia or a combination of the two playing into the day to day in a more undeniable way than ever.
Many individuals at every age will be feeling like babies all over again, hesitating, not knowing what to do, looking for a set precedent, but examples aren’t available because this is nothing like how life was once organized.
Energy continues to be a topic of huge importance and while citizens wait for an invention or huge technological breakthrough to fix problems and spark motivation, it’s not happening according to hopeful timelines (i.e. right f**king now). The situation is like building a new engine from scratch and pulling the chord that starts the engine when it’s time to test, only to be disappointed over and over again that the machine doesn’t turn over because an essential part is missing.
Danger is bringing out the best, believe it or not, courageous leadership is forced out. Some of this is taking the form of terrible human behavior and depravity, of course, and it is also spawning a response to it.
Since The Fool is connected to Uranus, forces, biomagnetic energies and the like are really important. Things like ebb and flow and mass-energy equivalence are part of consciousness in new ways, emanating, shaping fresh forms.

Follow Uranus throughout 2019 to maximize inventiveness.
Uranus moves out of retrograde in the sign of Aries on January 6th and the planet doesn’t enter Taurus until March. The significance of all this is related to the degrees of the signs Uranus is hitting.
Uranus is at the very end of Aries between 28 and 29 degrees then it moves into Taurus at zero degrees on March 6th, so we’re ending a seven-year cycle and beginning a new one.
On a practical level, endings and beginnings are not the best times to initiate necessarily, because we don’t know what the f**k is happening, as an anchored reality doesn’t exist in such transitional phases. In other words, things aren’t solid enough yet to make this gigantic impact as we’re “getting to know” the new phase and “wrapping up” the old one, there is a lot more idea generating than active doing.
Uranus is also taking a new elemental form, from the raging fire of Aries to the structured earth of Taurus. The planet of instant force and presence is finding its feet on the ground, literally, it’s learning how to walk. We’re now in the second phase of a huge new beginning because Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, so the period of the latest Uranus in Aries transit from 2011 to most of 2018 is the start of a whole new 84-year cycle.
Uranus in Taurus is about nature, and literally the very nature of nature is altering in shocking ways. New tools are in development to address a fresh material reality we don’t yet understand.
KEY JANUARY THEMES FOR EACH SUN / RISING / MOON SIGN:
Aries - The Knight of Swords: Ram, the quest for clarity and information is admirable, but can easily lead to an overzealous mind. Don’t get stuck on one track or singular focus when obsession is driving the thought process, because careless mistakes result in that instance. The Knight of Swords is courageous in unwavering commitment to a goal, which is an obvious bonus, and if clear-headed, this card indicates expanded knowledge beyond comprehension is possible to achieve in the months ahead. Keep searching for wisdom but once lustiness or cruelty enters the picture, a mental reset may be necessary.
Taurus - Temperance: Bull, steady. Temperance turns up to usher in an era of balance. In 2018, a whole bunch of stressors that were really, very heavy on the psyche may have turned up to wreak havoc just through the sheer terror of the unknown. Now it’s time to heal from all that and regain equilibrium. The way to do that is through maintaining a healthy routine, focusing on issues of health and wellbeing, but also through trusting in divinity, the divine order and timing of things. Temperance is a clear card in the tarot pointing to celestial realms and the presence of entities. There’s a wealth of healing pooled from spiritual dimensions, tap into your extramundane tribe through whatever means to enhance constitution to optimum levels.
Gemini - The Seven of Coins: Twins, resources are plentiful, hard earned and begging to be funneled, but take your time and do it right. The Seven of Coins turns up to confirm January and the whole of 2019 puts the spotlight on money, material items, assets, including investments into self-improvement such as education. There’s still work to do, but trust that progressing with an eye on quality versus quantity or excellence over get-rich-quick will engender greater reward. The Seven of Coins bides time, but successfully and strategically, just as a farmer harvests after seasons of toil into the land. A solid rule of thumb here is to not rush to bloom something that still needs time to grow. This does not mean you’re entering into a sedentary period of staying in one place like a rock and sucking and not getting things done. This is about planning and unfurling the implementation with experienced finesse and incontestable expertise.
Cancer - Justice reversed: Crab, relationship issues enhance inner strength and resolve. Justice reversed suggests multiple concerns around interactions with others come up to test internal judgement. You don’t always have to back down or placate to be the better man, stick to your resolve. Ultimately, this message is all about not caring what other people think and sticking true to the Self. This is not about assertion of ego, it’s about equanimity in partnership. You are who you are and they are who they are; it’s an equal playing field, no diminishment of character. Don’t feel pressured to play small or play up, take on any kind of inauthentic role to “fix” an imbalance in associations.
Leo - The Queen of Swords: Lion, the art of detachment is at play in a big way in 2019. The Queen of Swords is a court card personality who is sometimes deservedly slammed for being a sharp, cold ass person, but the higher manifestation of this character archetype is an observant and fully balanced human being who cuts right the point. Please adopt a similar objective perspective in upcoming months. Neutrality and impartiality helps to eliminate a whole bunch of bullsh*t; a lot of things roll off the back, they don’t stay stuck and become an issue. With the leadership you’re taking on, honesty, truth and seeing things for what they are is some of the most powerful assets you can have as the year unfurls.
Virgo - The Six of Swords: Virgin, smooth sails ahead. The Six of Swords indicates the era after an intense struggle powerful enough to cause psychological damage. Phantoms of a difficult period has haunted the psyche for too long and now ease has arrived to create space around the disturbance. It may literally take a minute to snap out of it and realize things are no longer as they were in the past. It’s safe. Continue to flow at the pace you need to embrace more relaxation and peace of mind on a consistent basis.
Libra - The Page of Swords: Scales, keep it real and thorough. This year presses strong emphasis on communication, discernment and novel expression. It’s easy to take things on at face value, but The Page of Swords turning up indicates executing a full vetting is a favored approach. Beware flatterers, sycophants, con artists or fakes in general. People won’t necessarily present faces that are authentic. Don’t get in bed with swindlers who are certain to not hold up their end of the bargain in a contract. Interacting with grounded associates anchored in truth, reality and endurance is a must. This can be a very beautiful year, where so many things are attractive. The bright side of this whole situation is through tapping into a raw truth, a deep connection to a resplendent way of living occurs.
Scorpio - The Fool reversed: Scorpion, obeying a superior force is the only way forward. The Fool reversed is tempted to fight a losing battle of will against soul. A higher purpose is driving this whole situation and needs to be honored. Arrogance won’t lead to good places. Some relationships have an instability or volatility attached to them, all a learning curve to keep you connected to the Divine Force. Trust you’ll find yourself in the proper time and place for the arc of your incarnation. Let the chips fall where they may in their own cosmic direction.
Sagittarius - The Ace of Cups reversed: Centaur, caving in and selling short is so tempting with this card here. The Ace of Cups reversed suggests a lot of obstacles can be overcome with the aid of many other hands, but punking out and selling a false version of yourself is bound to cause problems. Deprivation syndrome can easily lead to acquiescing to some role that doesn’t feel right, causing internal confusion and problems. As cheesy as it is, love thyself is really a big message here. A vulnerability exists with The Ace of Cups that makes it not want to share itself with others, to mask something. Maybe secrets exist and boundaries of exposure are in place. Whatever emotional growth process this is eventually leads to much greater self-appreciation and care.
Capricorn - The Five of Cups reversed: Goat, tides turn favorable with careful integration. The Five of Cups reversed suggests the worst is over, but the residual effects of emotional grief are better to be integrated than ignored. Although there’s a lesson to be learned, the fact is, it’s almost party time out here, because the climate is so much better, air cleaner than all the breakdowns experienced in 2018. The Five of Cups reversed suggests January presents some type of weird celebratory mourning hybrid meant to stimulate profound emotional growth.
Aquarius - The Three of Staves reversed: Aquarian, this is about honor. The Three of Staves reversed sets an environment of deep evaluation, where the merit of decisions is questioned. This energy isn’t restricted to reflection on a personal life trajectory; implications for the soul are also part of the equation. Lots of choices made have had a profound impact on your spiritual growth and now need to be processed to eliminate confusion as to how to move forward in the world.
Pisces - The Four of Cups: Fish, what next? The Four of Cups is extra reflective after having experienced the extreme bliss of the Three of Cups. This energy wants to get at the root of what it’s all for, but may not be able to find the answers sought. Feeling emotionally stuck or stagnant may be confusing, but don’t allow frustration at not knowing what to do about it or not seeing options to be a bummer. The solution actually is right before you. The best way to deal with this energy is to get another or multiple outside perspectives to zap you out of where you’re blocked.
TIPS, SUGGESTIONS & NOTES FOR THE MONTH:
Change is the only constant. A lot of crazy sh*t continues to go on. Don’t worry about survival at this point, focus on adaptation to allow space for innovation.
Combustibility as a basic bioenergy breaking out on planet earth. Watch for more explosions, volcanic activity or even a major earthquake to rock the world.
Entire economic systems shift. Volatile financial markets, shifts in pricing, economic changes are rife.
Entire hegemonic structures are also falling down to be rebuilt. Patriarchy, racism, rich against poor, everything, all different kinds of factions are creating a new relational reality and changing the way society runs on a basic fundamental level.
Excitement is paired with all the scariness. This is legit a very scary time and simultaneously extremely exciting, on some space travel sci-fi level of possibility.
