Then, you’ll learn the energetic qualities of each of the Numbers 1 through 9, a brief “compatibility” formula not well-known, and even cover the Master Numbers of 11, 22, and (rare for life paths) 33.

Simone Butler: Welcome to the Year of the Earth Pig!

Chinese New Year begins on February 5, with the shift to Earth Pig – the last sign of the Chinese zodiac. This year will bring endings with whatever no longer works, to lay the groundwork for the brave new world of the Metal Rat in 2020. The compassionate, yin Pig favors relationships, and finishing what we start. What does the Earth Pig hold for you? And which enhancements can help you make the most of it?

Maria Gonzalez - SDAS Membership DirectorMaria Gonzalez: Retrograde and direct motion of planets in 2019

From January 6th to March 4th, 2019 we will experience a window of time where all planets will be in direct motion. This will be a period of growth and alignment where we will feel propelled forward. By contrast, from July 7th to August 1st we will experience 5 planets in retrograde motion. So, make your plans and be prepared for these important events. And remember retrogrades teach us to slow down and to revise, revisit, reconnect, rewrite old ideas so we strengthen our plans with a solid foundation.

Jim Hennum: 2019 Eclipses in Mundane Astrology

April Elliott Kent: The Lunar Nodes in Cancer/Capricorn

The Lunar Nodes will transit Cancer and Capricorn from Nov. 2018 – May 2020, connecting with Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn along the way. April will explore the transiting Nodes and eclipses from a natal viewpoint, offering forecasts for each sign.

Melissa LaFara: Jupiter in Sagittarius

Many are looking forward to the November ingress of Jupiter into his domicile of Sagittarius, which will be a considerable change from the intense growth spurt that ensued under the Scorpio transit. Jupiter will now take the place that Saturn filled only a few years ago, as the gas giant makes a 3-pass square with Neptune in Pisces. We will take a look at what Jupiter in Sagittarius might represent in the personal and worldly sphere, while also examining how tension between two limitless planets may color the vibe of 2019.
