Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
The slow, gradual, incremental approach will be your magic strategy in 2019. Being persistent and thorough as you take one step at a time will provide you with the power to accomplish wonders. Now and then, you may be tempted to seek dramatic breakthroughs or flashy leaps of faith; and there may indeed be one or two such events mixed in with your steady rhythms. But for the most part, your glory will come through tenacity. Now study this advice from mystic Meister Eckhart: "Wisdom consists in doing the next thing you have to do, doing it with your whole heart, and finding delight in doing it."

I made a New Year's resolution at https://habitica.com/ to write every day. My task says "Open Eleven. Write a sentence." but it's even more minimal than it looks: I'm committing to opening the file that I'm working on, but I don't necessarily have to write anything in it. If I can't, I am allowed to write a one-sentence review of a book I've read instead.

Let's see if this works.

Best wishes for your plan!

I'm not a Scorpio, but "slow, gradual, incremental" seems to be how I get things done. Eventually. Even planning for incremental, projects take 10 times longer than I expect.

Yes! Setting achievable goals is something I'm trying to work on myself, and this seems like a really admirable example.
