The twelve signs of the zodiac are categorised into four groups of three signs, each ruled by a particular element:
Air - Gemini, Libra, Aquarius.
Earth - Taurus, Virgo, Capircorn.
Fire - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius.
Water - Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces.
The signs ruled by each element are naturally compatible with each other, they ‘get’ each other and share similar values, attitudes and outlooks on life. Birds of a feather fly together. If your coven had a member from each zodiac sign, your other two element signs would be your best witches.
EARTH SIGNS - Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo
The Devil, The Hermit, Four of Cups
The New Year heralds a thinning of the veil between the versions of Present and Future You. This New Moon, you get an imaginative glimpse of the character you’d love to become, living the lifestyle you’d love to wake up to, and it proves to be a transformative vision.
The Devil is a potent omen of being able (finally) to break bad habits you’ve long rued, and start new ones you long desired to. It provides the strength to wave goodbye to activities, people and priorities which no longer benefit your life. The Hermit reveals much of this change will occur internally, at least initially. Your values and beliefs are shifting and, as they solidify, they will drive new behaviours and decisions which bring lasting, positive change across the board. This is serious, this is important, and this is going to change everything in 2019!
I don’t mean to gush but the Four of Cups reassures that all this soul-searching (and consequent action) will renew your appetite for life itself. You may not realise how much room for improvement there is until you look back, later in summer, to this very point. You’re going to go further and feel better than you ever thought possible.
Your Element Crystal Prescription: Known as 'The Transformation Stone' Malachite is a deeply healing stone, helping you to change, move on and grow spiritually.

AIR Signs - Aquarius, Gemini, Libra
Page of Wands, The Lovers, Four of Swords
You’re so clever and versatile, Air signs, that a life focussed on just ONE thing is no good to you. A natural-born master of the “slash” career portfolio (poet / psychic / barista / burlesque dancer? Why not!). And, as spring 2019 emerges, you move towards that varied way of earning a living as you finally see how it can all fit together and work for you.
The Lovers is about hedging your bets, indecision and conflicted pathways, and the Four of Swords hints that this confusion over your career course of action may linger during the early months of 2019. Don’t stress, don’t get frustrated, don’t FORCE it. Let things evolve and let your mindset settle because from this fog there is truth, light and a way out!
The Page of Wands asks you to remain in an “experimental” mode, trial ‘n’ error wins the day, don’t put pressure on yourself to expect that things will be perfect or right first time. You’re changing and adapting your life to be full of the variety you mentally crave. This is the turning point.

WATER Signs - Pisces, Cancer, Scorpio
Knight of Wands, Knight of Swords, Ten of Wands
The theme of 2019 is “less is more”. Sounds simple? The best things always are, right?
The first step, this January, is shown by the spiky Ten of Wands. It’s the “workaholic” card and tells you that you need to free up some headspace and time to allow yourself room to grow and seek new news. Make an audit of your obligations and where you invest your time and energy. Ditch, delegate and delay. Make some space.
Done? OK, step two.
The Knights of Wands and Swords want you to put some considered and intellectual thought into scheduling ADVENTURE for yourself through 2019, and January is the month to put pen to paper and make those plans. Travel, exploration, new activity, education and fun… every month should contain at least one opportunity for the adventure-of-a-lifetime, and you can plan it NOW. This is the key to doing more, with less, and finding true fulfilment in 2019.

FIRE Signs - Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Four of Rings, The Emperor, Eight of Wands
January is THE key month, in 2019, to abolish and dismantle any and all RUTS you’ve built up in your life. Be honest, you know where they linger and how they keep you embroiled in places, relationships and situations you long to leave. So, why not? The Four of Coins shows it’s time NOW. And The Emperor brings you the will power, resilience and determination to make the necessary changes. It will be like breaking out of prison- exhilarating! And, even better, the Eight of Wands shows that as soon you free up that dead-weight space in your life, new and fresh opportunity will flood in. It’s only when you release yourself from these outdated and stale obligations that you realise how heavy they’d become, and how they had been hindering you from moving onwards and upwards. This is the most important priority for January, it will set you up for the rest of 2019. Don’t miss this opportunity to change the game.
