Capricorn Forecast for 2019: Love & Romance
There is something special happening on the romantic and relationship fronts this year, that is beyond what you would typically expect. You had a taste of this on the romantic front last year, but it is on the relationship front that this will draw your attention from the get go. That there is any focus on your relationships in the New Year is not the norm, with June and July the months when the solar spotlight is on your relationships. While you don't start the year with any planets in your relationship sector, you do start the year with the North Node here. In your relationship sector from November 2018 to May 2020, the North Node has brought the element of fate into play, along with the potential for major new beginnings.
The North Node is also here to act as a balance to the South Node, which is in Capricorn from November 2018 to May 2020 as well. The lunar nodes always act as a balance and throughout 2019 they will police a balance between your personal and relationship needs. The lunar nodes also determine where the eclipses fall, which bring the element of fate into play. The first eclipse since the South Node's return is a doozy, a total solar eclipse on 3rd July, bringing the element of fate into play and creating the potential for major new beginnings. The North Node is a lucky and auspicious force, second only to lucky Jupiter himself and while it is here all year, it is when the planets start to return to your relationship sector that you will really feel this.
It begins with Mars' return on 16th May, with continuous planetary activity then through to 12th August. The total solar eclipse on 4th July will be the epicentre. Yet while there are major developments on the relationship front this year, there are equally major developments on the romantic front. Once again, it begins with Mars' return, with the planet of passion and the warrior planet of the cosmos returning to fire things up romantically, fuelling your romantic passions and fighting spirit from 15th February to 31st March. It is while Mars is here that Uranus, who made a short six month visit last year, before retrograding back out, will return on 6th March. Once he returns the planet of surprise, synchronicity and the unexpected is now here until 2026. The Sun will move through from 20th April to 21st May and Mercury from 7th May to 21st May. However, the real magic happens when Venus moves through, from 15th May to 9th June.
