Posted by ICS Canada

night sky with stars

What’s the forecast for your future?

As we’re slowly settling in to the new year, there’s a lot to be excited about! A fresh start and a new opportunity to tackle your goals and make changes is on the horizon. The sky’s the limit and no matter what the next year has in store for you, you have the chance to reach your goals, whether that’s finishing school or starting a new career. Here’s what Desmerelda thinks the stars have to say about the challenges and triumphs you’ll encounter in 2019!

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)


You’re known for being stubborn and that’s not a bad thing. You stand by your convictions and follow through with your plans. 2019 is going to be all about taking the next step. You’ve been working on developing your skills through online courses and it’s time to kick it up a notch. Strengthening your communication skills, both with family and friends and in a professional sense, will be important for you this year. If you’re not confident about your public speaking skills, practice by volunteering to lead a meeting at work or give a speech at a family event. The goal is to get used to sharing your thoughts in concise, understandable ways so you can shine in interviews once you’ve graduated from ICS Canada.

You deserve to shine bright and if you apply your aquarian persistence to your weaker skills, nothing will stand in your way of making the most out of 2019.

Pisces (February 19 to March 20)


Pisces, you’re one of the more empathetic and compassionate signs of the zodiac. While this can help you in careers where listening skills and helping others are key, you can often be overwhelmed by emotion—yours and theirs. 2019 will be about keeping yourself grounded and testing out new strategies to take your 2018 successes further. This could mean finding a quiet study space away from distractions from family and friends, or sharing your study schedule with them so you have uninterrupted time to concentrate. The people in your life are rooting for you to succeed, so they’ll be more than happy to give you the time you need to work toward your goals.

While your friends and family look to you for emotional guidance and your amazing listening skills, you need to make time for yourself in 2019, Pisces. You’ll conquer your goals with time to spare.

Aries (March 21 to April 19)


Aries are the most action-oriented group of the zodiac. As an Aries, you’re all about high energy, staying upbeat, and pushing yourself to actually do things instead of sit back and watch others achieve their goals. Your can-do, will-do attitude is what makes you an amazing online student. You know what you want, and you plan to get it.

But while that confident, driven attitude keeps you motivated, it can result in you rushing through your work. 2019 is going to be the year you work smarter, not harder! While you don’t have to “take time to smell the roses,” slowing down to make meaningful contacts in your industry and network with potential colleagues can help you line up a new job. Building relationships with people in the field you’re interested is a good move; besides lining up mentorship opportunities or interviews, you can get insider knowledge on how the industry really works. That can compliment your studies and help you ace your courses.

Taurus (April 20 to May 20)


Born under the sign of the bull, you’re known for being grounded. You’re practical, reliable, and have an artsy side, too! While 2018 saw you beginning to consider a new career path or starting a new program, 2019 is all about getting started and finishing up. While you’re practical and never go forward with a half-formed plan, you’re also stubborn and need to be highly motivated to make things happen before you begin any work. This year, Taurus, take some time to consider who you are and what you want. What career is in your future? When you better understand what you want to do, you’ll be more than motivated to get moving.

Taking some time to consider a more artistic ventures can help you learn new things you enjoy, while clearing your head to map out the career path you want. Pursuing a course in a hobby you like could spark your creative thinking and lead to a dream job you never considered before!

Gemini (May 21 to June 20)


As a Gemini, you know that you have a tendency to move so rapidly from one thought or emotion to another that it can leave others spinning. You’re passionate about five different things at once, expressive, and quick-witted. Though this can leave the people in your life frustrated, they also know you’re more than capable of doing whatever you set your mind to. The problem, Gemini, is that you might not realize that they’re right yet.

2018 had you backing away from your goals and dreams, but 2019 is all about building your confidence and letting the family and friends who believe in you support you. If you’ve been considering enrolling in an ICS Canada program, now might be the perfect time to get started. With your closest supporters cheering you on, you can reach new heights, all on a flexible schedule.

Cancer (June 21 to July 22)


Born under the sign of the crab, you’re someone who is happiest where home is. That doesn’t mean you’re a homebody by any means, but you do love to nurture and care for your loved ones. You’re happy staying in familiar surroundings and, while you do have a need for spontaneity, you never travel far from the usual path. Worrying about the unknown may have kept you from searching out unfamiliar career paths and schools. In 2019, your sense of adventure and spontaneity, as well as a need for change, will have you looking into the perfect career for you.

Take time to seek out careers that align with your values, such as Animal Sciences or Child Day Care Management, or any other path that allows you to take care of others. With your interest in familiar surroundings, learning at home, when you want, could help you discover the dream job you never knew you wanted.

Leo (July 23 to August 22)


You’re a confident, driven, ambitious star, Leo. There’s almost nothing you love more than the limelight and you strive to excel at everything you do. You make sure to do the best work possible in your current job and you’re dedicated to getting awesome grades in your schoolwork. 2018 saw you jumping in feet first toward a new career path by furthering your education at ICS Canada. With so much going on, flexible, online education seems almost made for your hectic work and social life. But, Leo, you need to be careful you don’t blaze too bright and suffer from study burnout.

2019 is going to be a year of transformation for you and a change of scenery will help you in your studies. Take a “study vacation” when you feel yourself starting to get tense. That doesn’t mean you have to stop studying and excelling, Leo. Find new spots to study in 2019, whether it’s a local cafe you love or a new library. A change of pace will refresh your enthusiasm for your work.

Virgo (August 23 to September 22)


You’re practical, fiercely intelligent, and analytical. As a Virgo, you tend to be an observer, taking in the world around you but not saying much. Still waters run deep, and you’ve got dreams running through your mind at break-neck speed. You tend to be overly modest and don’t celebrate your accomplishments because you feel like you’re on the same level as everyone else. Why draw attention to yourself?

But, Virgo, 2019 is your year to shine bright like a diamond and you deserve the accolades your friends and family want to bestow on you. While you’ve been quietly working through your studies, finishing exams and papers, and snagging near perfect grades, your loved ones have been there for you, cheering you on. With your goal to finish your program this year, it’s the perfect time to start thinking about how you should celebrate your successes. This could mean a private graduation “ceremony” at home or even attending the in-person commencement ceremony held each year. Whatever you decide to do, make sure you share your accomplishments this year so we can all cheer for you.

Libra (September 23 to October 22)


Libra, you’re the peacemaker of the zodiac. You have trouble saying “no” to others and because you prefer to avoid confrontation, you tend to take on too much work at one time. This lead to you being overwhelmed and stressed in 2018, so 2019 will be about learning how to be more assertive.

Learn to say “no” when someone at work asks you to do something that you legitimately do not have time for. While you may assume that saying “yes” to every request makes you look like the hardest working, most dedicated person in your company, eventually you’re going to be crushed under that pressure and lose focus on projects that matter. Like the other signs, you’ve got a lot you’re hoping to accomplish in 2019, from graduating from your online program, to securing that promotion you’ve been after at work.

To be as successful as possible in this new year, take steps to be more assertive, truthful about what you can and can’t handle, and most of all, proud of the work you’ve accomplished.

Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)


Scorpio, you’re absolutely fearless. You dive into new challenges without a second thought and friends and family look up to you for your bravery. You’re a natural leader and someone who is fiercely protective of those you feel can’t stand up for themselves. In 2018, you’ve continued to work at a job you’re not the happiest with so 2019 is all about career change for you.

With your adaptability and care for others, searching for a career that helps others could be the right move for you. Assisting children learn as a teacher aide or helping patients get back on track as an occupational therapy aide could be the dream job you’ve been waiting for.

Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)


You’re naturally curious and inclined to explore the world around you. You’re also honest, enthusiastic, and optimistic, which means you may often find yourself disappointed in others. While 2018 brought changes in your friendships and homelife, 2019 is the year to concentrate on changes in your work life.

Whether you’re just starting an entry-level position, you’re changing careers, or you’ve proudly worked for the same company for years, networking can help you excel at work. This year, take time to become involved in company activities. If you’re job has a mentorship program, even better! As one of the more extroverted signs of the zodiac, Sagittarius, water cooler conversation comes easy to you. The challenge in networking for you is to see the value of balancing your drive and ambition with being part of a larger team.

Capricorn (December 22 to January 20)


As a Capricorn, you’re self-disciplined and dedicated to what you do, whatever that may be. Your sense of independence has allowed you to conquer your goals in the past with no outside help. It also has kept you focused and on track. There’s nothing you love better than a concise to-do list! However, your independence can lead you to fear criticism, no matter how constructive, and shy away from being self-critical. It’s important in 2019 to remember that “an unexamined life isn’t worth living,” as Plato said.

2019 is your year to become an even better you and that means taking a step back and acknowledging what you need help with and what you can work on. There is no shame in asking for help. As driven as you are, Capricorn, taking the time to examine who you are will only help you become even better in your career. That could mean realizing it’s time to learn something new to boost your resume. With your discipline, you can knock out an online course and add it to your skills list in no time.

The sky’s the limit in 2019.

The beginning of a new year is an exciting time to reassess and refresh your goals. Whether you need to work on being a better communicator, standing up for yourself more, or even just giving yourself some down time, it’s the perfect moment to get start something new.
