New Moons, Numerology & More: Everything You Need To Know About Spirituality In 2019
As the year comes to a close, it's time to set our sights on 2019. Though it remains to be seen what this new year will bring, we can look to its numerology, retrogrades, and key lunar events for clues. Here are a few soul snippets for the coming year to add to your conscious calendar. I'd wish you good luck for the year ahead, but all the spiritual signs say that you might not even need it.
According to numerology, 2019 will bring on a wave of good luck.
In numerology, the study of how numbers help shape our destiny, the year 2019 adds up to 2+0+1+9=12. 1+2=3. A 3 year hints at a wave of luck coming our way, as the number often brings positive opportunity and nudges good things toward the horizon. The energy of the year is "Seize the day." When opportunity knocks, run with it. Greet challenges as opportunity to learn, grow, and expand.
If you're curious to dive deeper into this practice, you can also calculate your personal year number for 2019 using the digits in your birthday (this guide will tell ya how). That'll give you more clues about how you, specifically, should be navigating the fortuitous year to reap the most benefits.
There are 10 lunar moments to look out for in 2019.
It has long been written throughout history, stories, and mythology that strange happenings occur during full moons and eclipses. You may already have your own manifestation rituals for new moons and release rituals for full ones, and these are always worthy of your attention and intention. But supermoons, equinoxes, solstices, and eclipses also carry some special energy of their own. Noted astrologers the AstroTwins are predicting that the upcoming eclipses will bring a hefty dose of grounding energy (you can read up on what else they're forecasting for the new year here), so they're worth paying attention to. Here are the lunar movements to take note of:
- January 21: Full Moon, Supermoon (the first of THREE supermoons in 2019!)
- January 21: Total Lunar Eclipse (Blood Moon)
- February 19: Full Moon, Supermoon (Hunger Moon)
- March 20: Spring Equinox
- March 21: Full Moon, Supermoon (Crow Moon)
- June 21: Summer Solstice
- July 2: Total Solar Eclipse

According to the Chinese zodiac, 2019 will usher in some good fortune.
2018 was the loyal and energetic Year of the Dog, and 2019 will be the pig. Contrary to what many of us probably imagine when we think of pigs, this animal is actually considered to be very lucky! People born in the Year of the Pig are thought to be happy, smart, easygoing, and tend to have good fortune. The Year of the Pig is believed to be a great time to get ahead financially, invest, and build businesses while there's luck in the air. So if your financial adviser asks what's spurring your sudden interest in investments, you can tell them that you're simply flowing with the Chinese zodiac!
Forget "new year, new you" and let's made 2019 the year of "new year, new age."
