Solar Eclipse 5 January 2019 – Big Business

  • 818

Solar Eclipse January 2019 AstrologyThe New Moon on Saturday January 5, 2019 at 15° Capricorn is a partial solar eclipse. The Solar Eclipse January 2019 astrology is generally positive thanks to a close alignment with the harmonious fixed star Vega. This massive pale sapphire star in Lyra Constellation, the Harp, has an optimistic, generous, creative and poetic influence.

The January 2019 Solar Eclipse conjunct Saturn gives a serious and conservative influence but a helpful aspect to Neptune lightens the mood. This is an excellent solar eclipse for starting or growing a business. It is ideal for creative, musical and artistic projects and encourages acts of kindness and charity. With integrity and good intentions, it is possible to build your little project into a big business.

Solar Eclipse Meaning

A solar eclipse is just like a regular new moon where the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun. However, a solar eclipse is more powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun. Solar Eclipse January 2019 is a partial solar eclipse so most of the Sun will still be visible. The new moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new cycle. A new moon influence lasts for four weeks but a solar eclipse lasts about six months.

The strongest and most important aspect in astrology is Sun conjunct Moon. It means all possibilities are on the table and you can rightly put yourself in the forefront of new plans for the future. It is time to question your old habits and behaviors as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress. This is the ideal time to make a fresh start, so write your new goals on paper. The Solar Eclipse January 2019 astrology will compliment themes found in the January 21 Lunar Eclipse. Together, they make up an eclipse phase which lasts until the July 2, 2019 solar eclipse.

At 15°25′ Capricorn the solar eclipse on January 5, 2019 lies between Saturn and Pluto. The Saturn-Pluto midpoint at 16°21′ Capricorn gives a very serious, dark feel to the solar eclipse. However, the strongest aspect to the eclipse is a sextile to Neptune which lightens the mood. But the strongest single influence on the solar eclipse comes from a very close alignment to one of the brightest stars in the heavens, the massive fixed star Vega.

Fixed Star Vega

At 15°33′ Capricorn Sign is the fixed star Vega, the brightest star in the Harp, Lyra Constellation, and the brightest fixed star of the northern sky. It is a positive influence and a particularly good omen when conjunct the Sun and above horizon [1] as it is for this eclipse. It gives a poetical and harmonious nature, charity, kindness, ideality, hopefulness and refinement. But Robson [2] says it also makes people grave and sober, causes changeableness and makes people outwardly pretentious and usually lascivious.

Ebertin said “Vega is supposed to give artistic talents, especially for music and acting, but also a liking for good living. With eccentric artists, this may lead to a debauched life”. [3] Vega rules the back of the right knee in the human body. It is associated with the ego. It creates fulfillment through the ego and can be considered as masculine pride brought forward from a former life into this incarnation. [4]

So Vega is a positive star but it also has some harmful effects. According to Robson, when the Sun and Moon join Vega it can make people critical, abrupt, reserved and unpopular. It gives fleeting honors, insincere friends, public disgrace, probably through forgery, loss through writings, some ill-health, but also success in business, an influential position and gain through an annuity or pension.

Solar Eclipse Aspects

Solar eclipse conjunct Saturn does give this eclipse more serious overtones. It reinforces the grave and sober influence of Vega in general, and the critical, abrupt, reserved and unpopular influence from Vega. However, Neptune eases the cold and restrictive nature of Saturn. Saturn gives the discipline and patience to fulfill your duties and obligations. You may have to take on extra responsibility or act as a mentor or guide.

This can be a time of great satisfaction, with achievements, recognition and promotion. You could act as a rock for someone, or be looked up to because of your stability and wisdom. Structures in your life may need attending to. This can range from your physical home to how you organize your daily routine. This is a good solar eclipse to simplify and bring efficiency to your life. clutter your life and remove the dead wood to make your goals less complicated and easier to achieve.

Solar eclipse sextile Neptune amplifies the harmonious and poetical influence of Vega. It makes this an excellent eclipse for musicians, artists and actors. Neptune will also heighten your sensitivity and ability to read people and situations. It brings vivid dreams and enhances your intuitive and psychic abilities.

Greater empathy and receptivity in your relationships will bring shared non-verbal understanding. This is a good eclipse to express your more caring and sensitive side by serving others. Doing so will boost your self-esteem and personal satisfaction. Group activities and spiritual work like meditation will bring inspiring insights, greater self understanding and contentment.

Saturn sextile Neptune brings material gain from spiritual pursuits. With hard work and a sensible, realistic approach, your dream can come true. You will understand your own limitations but will be optimistic at the same time. This is a solar eclipse to gain a deeper understanding of your spiritual goals and how they fit into the bigger picture.

You will show patience and self discipline without denying yourself or making sacrifices. You can also help make other people’s dream come true now through practical help and through spiritual support and encouragement. Devotion and service to others will increase your spiritual awareness and understanding. This aspect is also associated with finding or building your dream home.


The January 5 solar eclipse has a generally positive influence because of a close alignment with the bright star Vega. A positive aspect to Neptune enhances the harmonious and optimistic influence of this star. So solar eclipse January 2018 is ideal for starting creative, artistic and musical projects.

The solar eclipse conjunct fixed star Vega is also a good omen for starting or expanding a business. Most new business ventures fail within the first year but Saturn conjunct the solar eclipse with Vega improves your chances of long-term success. Great satisfaction and fulfillment, as well as financial independence are the likely results if you take a serious, ethical and moral approach to any new venture.

The solar eclipse sitting between Saturn and Pluto means serious business but also big business. Saturn sextile Neptune encourages this idealistic approach and makes it easier to turn your dreams into reality.

  1. The Solar Eclipse degree falls into my natal 5th H and = my natal Ven/Mar midpoint. I’m in performing arts and launching my very first website after many years of working in the business. Curious to know if I should launch the website within the first 2 weeks following the Solar Eclipse in order to maximize the effects of Vega etc… or if it’s OK to wait a month and launch in early Feb instead (when aspects are more harmonious to each other & to my natal chart)?

    • ok, the question is for Jamie, but as the effects of Solar Eclipse will last more or less until the next SE, I´d say that early February will be totally fine too, if it feels better for you. With all that Saturn influence it´s more about slow, steady, permanent results anyway, not so much of one great performance, which I would place more to the influence of Jupiter. ( f.e. when I had my last exhibiton, Jupiter was on my Leo-MC ) So, steady and sure, wish you all the luck with your business! 🙂

  2. at the solar eclipse Ultima Thule sits at 16°Cap25′, just 0.04′ from the Pluto-Saturn midpoint, 16°Cap21′


    Pluto and Ultima Thule were moving into conjunction 8°Cap, during the leadup to 2012, and the Mayan calendar hysteria.

  3. Hi Jamie,

    I have been thinking about the eclipse and I noticed that on these dates there were eclipses making an aspect with my natal Jupiter and Juno, so I tried to recall what happened on those dates:

    Lunar Eclipse July 5 2001 14° Capricorn
    – A breakthrough moment (career) related to a foreign company based in another country.
    Lunar Eclipse Sep 7 2006 15° Pisces 01′
    – A breakthrough moment (career) related an international organisation based in another country.
    Solar Eclipse Sept 11 2007 18° Virgo 24
    – A heartbreaking moment (emotionally).
    Lunar Eclipse Mar 3 2007 13° Virgo 00′
    -I cannot recall anything. Awful time emotionally.
    Lunar Eclipse Jul 7 2009 15° Capricorn 25
    – Surprising call related to an important job opportunity with a big international company based in another country. However I had to wait 3 months before getting some positive follow up.
    – I also launched with other people a business one month later.
    Solar Eclipse Jan 4 2011 13° Capricorn 38′
    – I cannot recall anything.
    Solar Eclipse Sept 12 2015 20° Virgo 17′
    – Related to personal relationship. Commitment issues involved.
    Solar Eclipse Mar 8 2016 18° Pisces 57′
    – Related to personal relationship. Second part of previous eclipse.

    So my first thought is that it can bring some kind of breakthrough on the career side but could it also bring something positive on the emotional side due to the trine?

    Could this eclipse reactivate the lunar eclipse of 7 Jul 2009 at 15°25 in Capricorn? And Saturn and Pluto bring a serious and good career opportunity as well as a positive and expanding emotional situation?

    Very intrigued by this eclipse! Thanks

  4. Hi, Jamie!

    Really love your site, especially concerning so much of good info on fixed stars! 🙂

    Just registered after having being ( mostly ) a passive reader and have some questions about the eclipse and your site too.

    First :
    I am curious as to what expect from this one. July Eclipse will be even more spot on ( for the following constellation ), but here, too, the eclipse creates a golden trine to my natal chart – with eclipse planets trining my Venus in Virgo ( 11th H ), and Saturn in Taurus ( 8th H ), which seems very good and stabilizing – and would much appreciate it ! – and being an artist anything nice to my Venus is always interesting.
    Yet Uranus is on my Desc opp Jupiter – not much stabilty there – , and Saturn is square to my ( 6th H ) Khiron.
    Fittingly – for the challenging Saturn aspects, which began 2 years ago with square to Pluto when I also had surgery then – I have lot of back problems and unable to do my art work atm. Fearing that I will need another surgery this year, I´d much appreciate, if the SE shows rather healing in your opinion, or are the positive aspects mainly about good friendships with this constellation ? I am hoping that Pluto trine my Saturn will “renew” back so that I can sit and walk again normally, but Saturn square Khiron squares me – will I need a second surgery before such positive healing from Pluto could take place ?

    Secondly –
    I would like to ask, if you use arabic points or asteroids in your horoscopes – I have asteroid Foruna and some beneficial arabic point on 15 degrees Capricorn, will they be enough counter-fource to possible “ill-health” from Vega ?
    Yes, I am an artist, but I think I will not go into debauchary with this star, guess my Venus trine Saturn in my natal chart makes me more modest than my other aspects in my birth-chart might indicate. 😉
    ( f.e. Jupiter on Libra-asc. might and does go overboard at times, but in my case mainly then with overspending for presents to significant other, and at times for other Venusian things )

    And yet a third question – is it not possible to comment here unless registered ? I have written two comments on your site before, and have not seen them published, although there was no rude nor private info as to why they should be removed/blocked in the first instance. Is there maybe a problem with the site, so that sometimes messages simply do not come through ?

    Oh, and happy New Year – I feel that it has begun firstly today with this New Moon, plus Uranus will turn direct in about an hour in my time-zone, at 9:21 pm or 10:21pm, don´t remember exactly, but feeling kinda excitement in the air which is refreshing! 🙂

  5. When will this eclipse “hit”??? Has anyone felt it. I know I haven’t. It’s on my venus 2/16/79 7:55pm.
