By Maria Beale Fletcher:
There's no escaping the physical, mental, and emotional trajectories set in motion in January of 2017, two years ago, when the world embarked upon a new nine-year cycle.
If we think 2019 (the year of the creative child within the newly formed family, the artist and the lawyer) will be easier and different than 2018, we must think again! Chaotic thoughts and actions are consequences of the undisciplined mind; hanging out on the "sidelines" never was an option that had any merit.
Stepping out of the illusion of sidelines, we see that there are no sidelines upon which to cling! We must be prepared to avoid—or meet head on—the dysfunctional souls who continue to act out their negative script with horrific results in mind.
This is the year to stand by our Faith—as the believer or atheist that we are. 2019 holds new beginnings; it also holds the promise of endings to worn-out expressions of attitude and behaviors.
Even the character of Ebenezer Scrooge, conceived by Charles Dickens in "A Christmas Carol," evolved to a plateau of serenity and goodwill for all. Though terrified, he faced his demons and acknowledged his poor use of free will throughout his entire life. Shedding his domineering belief system, he awakened in his old age—during his miraculous transformation—to a new world through his new choice of perception.
Like old clothes that no longer fit (evoking bad memories), we must face up to relationships that no longer bring us joy and happiness. Perhaps they need to be left behind! Do we really enjoy their depressing and depleting effects on our lives? Consider what that says about us!
Holding to desired outcomes—which we imagine in daily meditation and prayer—that are spoken with conviction will serve us throughout 2019 as we create our world to our desires, as Ebenezer Scrooge did, miraculously transforming ourselves in the process.
We must take courage in the realization that fear is misdirected energy and remember that darkness always gives way to the ever-dawning light.

January 2019 Predictions
# 1 Thanks for the new direction, "One," now that you are reading the User Manual from time to time. Slowing down for a deep breath won't hurt at all. It definitely will enhance your general attitude of your need to re-vamp your self-care!
In your impatience, you get careless and hurtful when you run over others in order to get out in front of the pack. And we all know the definition of Karma! She's keeping tabs! A little respect for the needs of your followers will go a long way.
Remember also that genuine gratitude, in sincere doses, will generate what you need from your flock this month. Your physical and emotional health suffers if you think you can get to the finish line without help!
Though "ruling" is your bag as usual, working for you . . . especially on January 1st, 10th, 19th, and 28th. Take care on January 4th, 8th, 22nd, and 31st. Proceed on tiptoe! There's a learning curve here, as you must use caution! Others want their say and their way! Take a deep breath, step back, and pause!
# 2 Intuitive "Two"; just when you thought you could keep a low profile and continue the routine of doing what you do for the home team, you suddenly realize it's 2019 and your turn at bat! Considering you also have needs that require your attention, it's about time you stepped up to the plate and announced them—along with your goals for the year of the family. If you feel a little intimidated about doing so, its good to practice speaking your truth in front of the mirror in a calm, reassuring voice. Know that it is your duty and responsibility to look after your own needs. Think of it this way; if you don't practice extreme self-care, who else will be bothered to do so? The others are busy with their own stuff. If you don't make yourself a priority, no one else will. Pencil in time for yourself on the calendars at home.
Perhaps you've taught them they can't get along without you very well. Or is it that your constant attention is overwhelming and a little suffocating to them? If so, step back; no one likes to feel hovered over. That's not the road to healthy relationships!
If 2019 has you rattled, here's something to ponder; as a dreamer, you've always been afraid of the unfamiliar: accept that fact, it's just who you are. However, when you're centered in the present moment, you see that you are safe.
Glance over at "One" and you'll realize that he or she isn't as courageous as they often appear to be. They may be benevolent and protective, but so are you in your sweet way. And truthfully, sometimes people are more comfortable in your presence. We all learn from one another. That's just the way it is. Decide what you want your behavior to teach, and then do that, intuitive "Two." Your keen sense of imagination and inventive style will always make you a favorite with your fans.
You rock on January 2nd, 11th, 20th, and 29th. Stay alert on January 5th and the 30th.
# 3 Number 3, "Inquisitive Talker," 2019 is your year! Creative child, be ready to shine and strut your stuff because, finally, it's all about you! Better buckle up your seat belt and hang on tight as you reach for all that your heart desires.
Okay, let's just chill for a moment and get serious. This new month of January wants you to consider seasoning your words with diplomacy in addition to all that natural charm you love to display. The delivery of your truth-telling defines your success this month and all of 2019. Choose your words—and your attitude behind them—carefully.
You will be heavily scrutinized this year. The key for you—the artist, the lawyer, the creative child—is to stay grounded with your faith and your belief in yourself. Choose your interests wisely. If you lose focus, you will be in for a very rough ride this month! Scatter your energies and you've lost your credibility. Do not torpedo the results you crave by giving in to childish whims of behavior. Give in to the reactionary you and all is lost. Temper tantrums won't work for you in 2019.
Victory can be yours when you bring out the endearing, nurturing, fun-loving side of yourself. You know how good it feels to inspire your friends and uplift them with your words of encouragement. The playful, entertaining, joyful, "Inquisitive Talker," number 3, will always be welcomed as a friend.
Have fun January 3rd, 6th, 9th, 12th, 15th, 21st, and 30th.
Use caution January 4th, 7th, 8th, 18th, 22nd, 25th, and 26th.
# 4 Let's face it, # 4, you are seldom understood by your family and peers. You are tolerant in your capacity to "get" everyone else when very few are able to understand you! Quite often you wander through your days mentally alert only to your own thoughts. Meanwhile, you are solving challenges that most have not recognized as situations that need to be rectified. With the ability to live in the future while solving those difficulties, your scientific, inventive thoughts are outlining a better world with your excellent solutions in place. We love the way your brilliant mind works! Everyone knows that you are a reliable worker, teacher, and advocate for orderliness. Even as a young child, your collections of toys were neatly secured where you could find them. You're always organizing your work projects and staying on top of what needs to be done. Excellent with tools, your attention to detail is awesome.
Have you ever noticed that when you're in that mode of you knowing what's best for all people, the toes you are treading on belong to your parents, siblings, and work buddies? Not to mention your friends!
With your inborn talent for prophecy, you have the ability to accurately predict what's coming down the road months or even years before it arrives. Disregard the naysayers and those who would ridicule and ignore you. One day, your brilliance as a leader in the scientific realm—or any other field of your choosing where mental acumen is valued—will be recognized by the world. By the way, always be aware of the bottom line, financially speaking; 2020 will be your year!
Continue making your own rules to live by and doing it your way. Though you're rarely understood, your contributions to your family and society are huge. Your friends love, admire, and respect you for the truly remarkable and multi-gifted individual that you are.
Enjoy January 4th, 13th, 22nd, and 31st.
Be careful January 1st, 3rd, 5th, and 9th.
# 5 The charismatic intellectual, "Versatile Communicator" can only be the Number 5. As courteous and changeable as you are, it is not easy for anyone, including yourself, to get to know you. You either harmonize with yourself and others, or you go against the grain!
This month of January, 2019, you need to be prepared to travel on a moment's notice and lose your finely tuned capacity for criticism. It has no place at home or on the road—least of all on vacation! Instead of focusing on the mistakes of others, shift your focus to what you want for yourself and your family. Your flexibility allows you to land on your feet, just when your jealous admirers are predicting you'll land on something else!
Equally at ease speaking or writing, your innate need and talent to communicate your original ideas keeps everyone anticipating your opinions. While entertaining at home and on vacation this month, remember to care for those who are tempted to put you on a pedestal. Your true friends and family love you!
Your attention to duties and responsibilities the first month of 2019 is just the beginning of what the rest of the year looks like, so you might as well embrace it, knowing you always land on your feet!
"Versatile Communicator" that you are, you can kick up your heels on January 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th, and 9th, plus the 14th, 23rd, and 25th. Stay alert on January 2nd, 4th, 6th, 20th, 22nd, 24th,and 31st.
# 6 Number 6, your magnetizing ways connect you with all personality types this month. Remember this; do not let those who would drain you of your energy have their way with you! It's time to make a New Year's Resolution: "I am happy to reciprocate work shifts with others who step up to the plate when it's my turn to ask a favor; no longer can you use me as a door mat!"
Warm-hearted, sentimental you, it may not be easy at first to stand up for yourself—resisting the temptation to go overboard with a negative reaction. With practice, you can do it if you keep your reactionary emotions under control.
Remember to reserve enough time for business, though you may prefer to entertain and cook at home.
Follow your instincts carefully this month!
Enjoy January 6, 9, 15, and 21.
Stay alert on January 1, 5, 7, 28, 30, and 31.
# 7 Number 7, be sure to enjoy your walks in nature alone or with your pet. Your silent meditations and prayers require that you take the time for much-needed solitude this month. Guarding your privacy is a must, especially in January, as you prioritize your time for your spiritual pursuits, setting the tone for 2019. It won't be easy, as you will feel pulled in different directions.
The need to set aside time for travel preparations will occupy your thoughts and stir your imagination in 2019. You'll experience an intense desire to communicate your thoughts to the troubled individual and your community, who will be soothed by your kindness.
The combination of your intuitive personality and compassion has a definite calming influence on your friends and family this month. Spirit of 7, your inspiration leads you and others in a new direction of dedication to your humanitarian goals.
Enjoy January 1, 7, 10, 16, and 25. Stay alert January 2, 3, 6, 8, and 9.
# 8 Number 8 is the number of destiny! As manager of outcomes, you have mastered self-discipline while balancing the material world with the spiritual world; no small achievement!
You stand a better chance of meeting your goals when you assign chores to those 18 and younger in "your kitchen cabinet!" Team work in the home and the office, with you at the helm, is what your primary lesson is this month and all of 2019.
If born in January, your 8 vibration intensifies your workaholic attitude. Old habits of fretting, wringing your hands, and staying up way past midnight won't get you where you want to be.
Yes, dear Number 8, you do deserve to be happy! Patience is a virtue; you are learning you cannot govern all alone, manage things and people, and still keep your sanity!
Productive days in January: 2, 4, 8, 11, 13, 17, 20, and 26. Stay alert: January 3, 7, 9, 12, 16, 18, 21, and 25.
# 9 Number 9: Psychic hits and intuition enhance your navigation through the intricacies of life in January 2019. Better get used to others wanting to focus the spotlight on you for a change instead of the other way around.
Now that your new beginnings are asserting themselves, don't be surprised when you're invited to the memorial services of those relationships that no longer serve either of you. And you thought it would be so hard to do! It feels good to shed a few pounds that didn't belong on your back in the first place!
As an old soul, strongly attached to your original family, now is the time to let go of those haunting memories that churn. Letting go is an attitude that you can practice many times this month, as 2019 swoops you up and carries you to new perspectives through your third eye.
Diverse personalities from many paths (many of those paths you have walked in previous lives) seek you out for the wise counsel you provide. Just be sure that you are not blindsided by the opportunistic ways of some who claim to be your friends. Learn from the happy, creative child who so eagerly shares his truth with the world.
Happy, productive January days: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 17, 20, 21, 23, 24, 27, and 29.
Stay alert: January 4, 7, 8, 13, 16, 22, 25, and 31.
