With the new year fast approaching, there's excitement in the air as we turn the page and look ahead to all the new and exciting experiences 2019 has in store for us.
Regardless of whether you're the relaxed, laid back type or are more of a Type-A planner, it's always nice to have a bit of a heads up as to what's coming down the pike—especially when it comes to your love life. So, BRIDES consulted expert astrologer Christian Klausner, to see what's forecasted for your love life in 2019. Read on for some insight so you can be prepared and open to whatever the year throws your way .
Aries, this is going to be the year where you’re called upon to be active, upfront, and direct in your approach to love. When you see something you want, sitting by idly will not do; you’ll have to reach out and take it. The good news is that this is exactly in line with your essential nature! The bad news? Well, it's going to call for a sensitive approach. “Tender-aggressive,” if you will. This year will encourage you to find out exactly what you want, and then to act on it, but in a compassionate, intuitive, and emotionally intelligent way. This means you have to back up your forceful approach with wisdom. If you don’t know precisely what you want, you’ll find it this year—but you’ll have to take the initiative in seeking the answer to this question deeply, as well. If you commit to experiencing a higher form of dedicated love, your instincts will guide you, and this will be a very rewarding and uplifting year for the adventure of romance.
Taurus, you’ll be slightly tested this year to find out who is right for you, and what “true love” really is. You’ll be the center of a lot of attention and affection, with little effort on your part—followed by bouts of loneliness when it feels like no one is looking your way. It is my hope that you’ll find a balance in this, and center in upon yourself, so as to cut off any dependencies. Take your time with love this year, and you’ll uncover, in the most natural way, who and what is exactly right for you. It’ll be tempting to indulge in all the attention and warm treatment, but if you can deny this temporary pleasure for the higher fulfillment of a real, vulnerable, emotional connection, you’ll be much happier in the long run.
Gemini, partnership can be a very rewarding experience for you this year. It will expand your horizons in many ways, providing adventure and growth on so many levels. Particularly, your relationship to the whole world can evolve through the experience of love and romance. The one thing to avoid is overspending both yourself and your resources for the sake of demonstrating your love to others. The exercise of your abilities to communicate, especially when it comes to expressing your inner feelings, will come up this year. Stay open, honest, and expectant of good things, and love will flow your way in abundance.
Cancer, this year looks particularly promising for you in the arena of love. You may be drawn to the more disciplined types—or perhaps they’ll be drawn to you. This could be because of your growing passion for life, and your unique sensitivity and tenderness, which can offer life and nourishment to those who are driven and detail-oriented. A partner should be able to offer you the right structure and guidance through which you can direct your imaginative creativity, just as water flows through channels carved in the earth. The only thing is to guard against those who seem too guarded or closed off emotionally; mutual receptivity is key to forming a lasting and fulfilling bond. Trust your instincts, and yourself, first, and the universe will bring you the perfect mate you can trust.
Leo, this year you’re likely going to be in need of someone who can work with you on multiple levels, productively and efficiently, as well as emotionally and domestically. But if you want someone to fit that role and your high standards, you’re going to need to put the challenge on yourself to be these things, so that you’ll know when your perfect compliment comes along. As a fire sign, you’ll be tested to be more caring, adaptable, and able to express yourself through a wider range of emotion—rather than the limited spectrum of joy, anger, and excitement which are so common to us fiery folk. Resilience will be key as well; if you find someone you love, your ability to navigate the thick and thin will determine whether or not your year is one of lasting love, or one of multiple fleeting partnerships.
Virgo, your highest experience of love in 2019 is going to come straight from your ability to find that you can communicate yourself with this person effortlessly. Love and romance is going to lure out your easiest, unobstructed, most beautiful expression, to flow out unhindered and surprisingly without much logical thought. It will invite you to speak before you think, because it issues from out of your heart, and comes purely from the source of your intuition. Things can get pretty artsy and creative for you in the game of romance this year, so to prevent it from being only that—a game—will require that you remember your purpose, and evaluate whether or not your relationships are taking you where you need to go, or are merely functioning as a pleasant diversion from your main path.
Libra, you’ll be likely to meet with some forward individuals this year—those who express their desires quite self-assuredly and make it hard to say no to a date. This is going to call forth your ability to respond just as strongly to the world, with your firm and confident ‘Yes’ or ‘No.’ Getting your priorities straight, and doing those “first things first,” will form the foundation from which you can truly let go this year and find the right one. But not only this, it will provide the basis for you to know who is right, and who isn’t. Having a strong base will strengthen your ‘Yes’ and ‘No,’ so that it comes from deep within—and no matter who approaches you, you’ll have the fulfillment of knowing that your responses are all purely your choice.
Scorpio, you have an uncanny ability to express yourself quite deeply and effectively when in the confines of a secure relationship, but this year is going to evolve and expand this capacity quite a bit. You may just find that your voice, your most caring and loving voice, finds an outlet to express itself in the wider world. You can find that your current partnership, or a new one, will develop and nurture this confidence in you, so that communication becomes a tool to enhance all aspects of your life, from the private to the public and professional. Whether or not you work with this process is all up to you, but if you consent to the mind and heart-opening experiences of this year, there will be a whole new kind of love that floods into you in 2019.
Sagittarius, your heart is in the right place, and all you must do is keep your feet planted firmly on the ground. Don’t chase after romantic shadows, but look at what is right in front of you. This year is going to invoke a spiritual, expansive, even universal kind of love within you, and so the hardest—and most rewarding—thing to do will be to focus these feelings, and infuse them into your daily life. The best way to apply, practice, and develop your growing love and spiritual wisdom is by dealing with those who are here with you now—not to wait for that imagined somebody on the other side of the world. Your attention to the present, and your willingness to open yourself up in love here and now, will lead you straight to the best experiences of love and partnership you could have ever imagined.
Capricorn, love is likely to be a transformative experience for you this year. It will reveal not only a deeper tenderness, but also some core strengths you didn’t know where there. Your willingness to respond to romantic situations with love and awareness will call out new internal resources of character you didn’t know you had, spurring you on to greater heights of self-realization. Learning and mastering the dynamics of partnership will be just as worthy an aim as pursuing career goals, or anything else this year, as it will unfold many of your latent talents. Let your strong principles guide you, but be just as open and willing to look at where you can change. Be brave in this, and you and your lover will travel together into new terrain.
Aquarius, this year will likely bring romantic experiences that illuminate, inspire, and bring a new awareness into your particular personal flavors of character. This insight will reveal more clearly just how you fit in to the big scheme of things, what service you can best render according to your personality, and your purpose in the world. For this reason, love is certainly something to look forward to, and to dive into courageously, openly, and honestly. This could be the year where you happily settle down, and simultaneously rise up into a realization of your true calling. Offer up your best self in all occasions, especially romantic ones, and you will see how quickly the best in 2019 begins to offer itself up to you.
Pisces, many tensions will be lifting off your shoulders in 2019, and this new sense of freedom and mobility will make you available to receive the new forms of love that are coming your way. Love will have a particular effect upon your mind this year; it will fortify your mentality with greater strength and self-assurance, as you learn to develop your trust in the goodwill of another. Believe that the universe has your back, that is supports you and wants the best from you. This is the best place to begin in order to find that one who will likewise support and desire only the best for you. If you already have that special someone, your relationship will flourish through your openness to explore your mind and deep beliefs about the world more fully and honestly.
