Spirituality has been a major interest for many years now, but this year even more so. Your 12th house of spirituality is easily the most powerful in your chart. So the year ahead is all about your spiritual growth and development. Your focus here will lead to career development and success as well. More on this later.
Finances, too, are following a long-term – many years – trend. Neptune, your financial planet, has been occupying your money house for many years. He is very powerful in his own sign and house and this is good for earnings. The year ahead is prosperous. More on this later.
Your 4th house of home and family has recently become prominent – since March of last year. Uranus, the ruler of your Horoscope, entered your 4th house then and he will remain there for the next seven or so years. There’s a lot of upheaval going on there and the family situation needs your attention. Details later.
This is not one of your best love and social years. It’s not a bad year – there’s just a lack of interest. Your 7th house is empty with only short-term planets passing through there. Thus it is pretty much a status quo kind of year for love. More on this later.
Aquarians are not conservative people. They are innovators, inventors, rebels and non-conformists. But since Uranus moved into Taurus last year you seem more mellow, more conservative than usual.
This year we will have six eclipses instead of the more normal four. Not only that, but we will have double the number of lunar eclipses this year. Usually there are two; this year there are four. Five of the six eclipses impact on your health and job situation, so there are many changes going on in these areas this year. More on this later.
Your 3rd house of communication and intellectual interests will become powerful from June 28 onwards. Mars, the ruler of your 3rd house will spend an unusually long time here – four times the length of his usual stay. So this is great for students. There is focus on their studies and focus leads to success. It is also good for writers, teachers, bloggers, journalists, and advertising, marketing and sales people – people who earn through their communication skills. However, a word of caution: there will be a tendency to get into arguments and verbal spats.
Your important areas of interest this year are the body and image (from March 23 to July 1 and December 18 onwards); finance; communication and intellectual interests (June 28 onwards); home and family; and spirituality.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment will be health and work (until May 6); love, romance and social activities (from May 6 onwards); spirituality (until December 20); and the body and image (after December 20).
(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both these perspectives were identical. But now there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)
Health will be basically good this year. There is one (sometimes two) long-term planets in stressful aspect with you, but generally this is not enough to cause serious problems. Sure, there will be periods where health and energy are less easy than usual. These are the temporary stresses caused by the transiting planets. They are not trends for the year. When they pass your normally good health and energy return. Health will be much more delicate next year.
Good though your health is you can make it even better. Give special attention to the following – the vulnerable areas of your Horoscope (the reflex points are shown in the chart below):
Important foot reflexology points for the year ahead
Try to massage all of the foot on a regular basis – the top of the foot as well as the bottom – but pay extra attention to the points highlighted on the chart. When you massage, be aware of ‘sore spots’ as these need special attention. It’s also a good idea to massage the ankles especially, and below them.
- The ankles and calves – always important for Aquarius, and ankle and calf massage should be part of your regular health regime.
- The stomach and breasts. These are also always important for Aquarius as the Moon, your health planet, rules these areas and the reflex points are shown above. (Our chart only shows the soles of the feet, but in your case the upper part of the foot is also important. Make sure to massage it regularly.) Health problems for Aquarius can often be alleviated with simple dietary changes. What you eat is important and should be checked with a professional, but how you eat is just as important. The act of eating should be elevated from mere animal appetite to an act of worship and thanksgiving. Grace (in your own words) should be said before and after meals. Food should be blessed, and meals taken in a calm and relaxed way. These practices will not only elevate the energy vibration of the food but also the energy vibration of your body and digestive system. You will get the best from the food you eat and it will digest better. This is why almost every religion has rituals for eating.
- The heart gained in significance since March last year, and will be important for the next couple of years. The important thing here is to let go of worry and anxiety. There is a consensus among spiritual healers that these are the root causes of heart problems. Meditation will be a big help here.
The Moon is your health planet. She is the fastest moving of all the planets and moves through your entire Horoscope every month. So there are many short-term health trends that depend on where the Moon is and the kind of aspects she receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
In general, you will feel more energetic when the Moon waxes (grows) than when she wanes. The waxing Moon is good for therapies where you add things to the body. The waning Moon is good for detoxing and cleanses.
As we mentioned earlier, five of the six eclipses this year will impact on health. So there can be a few health scares (and the good thing about these is that they force necessary changes to the health regime). But, overall, health looks good and these things will likely be nothing more than scares.
With the Moon as your health planet, good health for you means good emotional health. It is very important to maintain positive moods and emotions. This will be more challenging this year but meditation will be a big help. It is also important for your health to maintain harmony within the family – another challenging area.
Home and Family
Your 4th house of home and family has become a major focus since March of last year, and will remain important – and tempestuous – for the next seven years or so. Uranus, the planet of revolutionary and sudden change, is now in your 4th house.
The family circle will go through many crises. There will be upheavals in the family and perhaps breakups or near breakups. The marriage of a parent or parent figure is being severely tested. You are very devoted to the family and putting much attention here, but will it be enough?
Family members have extreme and sudden mood swings. You don’t know from one moment to the next where you stand or where they stand. You too can have sudden and inexplicable mood shifts.
By the time Uranus finishes his sojourn in your 4th house, your family and domestic situation will be totally different. Understand that Uranus is not there to punish. He is there in answer to your prayers and desires. You (or family members) have desired a better situation, and in order to have this shakeups are necessary.
With Uranus in the 4th house you can have multiple moves this year and in future years. Often we also see multiple renovations to the home – a never-ending process. Every time you think you have things ‘just right’ a new idea comes to you and you upgrade again. This goes on and on.
There will also be many technology upgrades to the home this year. You are installing high-tech gadgetry and equipment. In the future we can see ‘smart appliances’ and perhaps a totally ‘smart’ home. Everything is connected to the internet.
Aquarians of childbearing age are more fertile this year – but especially after December 20. Fertility is higher next year too.
There are always many short-term home and family trends in your Horoscope, because Venus, your family planet, moves quickly. This year she will move through eleven signs and houses in your chart, so many family events will depend on where Venus is at any given time and the kinds of aspects she receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
One of the parents or parent figures in your life is very restless and freedom-loving these days. He or she will be moving around a lot and perhaps staying in different places for long periods of time. But a formal move isn’t likely. The other parent or parent figure could move at the end of this year, but more probably next year. This is not a smooth transaction. There are many delays and glitches involved with it.
Siblings and sibling figures are having many family dramas this year, but a move is not likely. Children and children figures are having a stable family year. Grandchildren (if you have them) and those who play that role in your life could move this year, but it’s a challenging kind of action. If they are of childbearing age they are more fertile for the next two years.
Renovations will probably go on all year, but February 16 to March 31 is an excellent time for such work. If you’re redecorating or beautifying the home in cosmetic kinds of ways – or buying objects of beauty for the home – March 5 to April 3 is a good time.
Finance and Career
The year ahead looks prosperous. Your money house has been prominent for many years and will continue to be so. This shows focus, and by the spiritual law we get what we focus on. Also, your financial planet is receiving beneficial aspects from the long-term planets – another positive for finance. On December 20, Jupiter, the planet of abundance, will move into your own sign, signalling a two-year cycle of prosperity. You will end the year in better financial shape than when you began.
Neptune is your financial planet and, as we have mentioned in many previous reports, he is the most spiritual of all the planets. He is, in a sense, ‘other worldly’. He is not concerned with any material condition or circumstance, for he knows he can create new circumstances. Because he is so otherworldly he operates by his own law and, if you’re not careful, this can lead to financial scandals. It is good to be otherworldly in a positive way, but be aware of this terrestrial world too.
The financial intuition is very strong these days – just as it has been for many years. In fact your intuition is being trained in financial matters.
On a worldly level, Neptune rules water utilities, water bottlers and companies involved with water – shipping, shipbuilders, fisheries and the like. Neptune also rules oil, natural gas (especially from offshore drilling), retirement homes, hospices, alcohol and certain pharmaceuticals – the makers of mood enhancers and anaesthetics. You have a good feeling for all these industries. Moreover, people from these industries can play an important role in your finances.
With spiritual Neptune in your money house for so many years, many of you are attracted to ‘spiritually correct’ ways of earning. You like idealistic kinds of enterprises – things that benefit the whole planet. Often this shows working for a charity or a not-for-profit enterprise. Those of you concerned with the environment will find opportunities with companies that are involved with this, and there are many these days. Others will get involved in marketing spiritual books, seminars or lectures (or perhaps will give them). Neptune also rules film, photography and the fine arts. There are money-making opportunities here too and you would enjoy them.
We see this same idealism in the career as well. Your career planet, Pluto, has been in your spiritual 12th house since 2008 and will be there for many years to come. So just being successful and making money is not enough for you. You need work that is meaningful and soul-satisfying. The career looks very successful this year, as Jupiter will be travelling with your career planet most of the year. So you are elevated in your professional and social status this year.
Your main career challenge this year is something that many people face, but with you it is more intense. You need to balance a successful home and domestic life with a successful career. There’s a lot of juggling going on. Both the demands of the family and the demands of the career are very strong. Now you will lean one way and now another. Everyone finds their own solution to this.
Love and Social Life
The love and romantic life is not prominent this year. For a start, most of the long-term planets are in the Eastern sector of self – of personal independence. While the Western, social sector will strengthen as the year unfolds, it will never overpower the Eastern sector. At its strongest (and this will only be for brief periods) it will equal the Eastern sector. So, you are more independent this year. More self-sufficient. You chart your own course. You have less need of others than usual. This is a wonderful trait but is not that good for love. Secondly, your 7th house of love is basically empty this year, while your 1st house of the self gets steadily stronger as the year progresses. Only short-term planets will move through the 7th house. So romance seems to be on the back burner. In spite of this, the Moon’s North Node (an abstract point) will move into your 7th house on May 6 and stay there for the rest of the year. So, while it is good to be independent and self-sufficient, it is also good to socialize and cultivate friendships. I read this as a social year tending to the status quo. Singles will tend to stay single, and those who are married will tend to stay married.
Aquarians are more into friendships than love. In fact love is just a ‘friendship with benefits’. Love is just friendship on a deeper level. This area will be active this year.
Your planet of friends, Jupiter, will travel with your career planet. This shows that a lot of your socializing is career-related. You are meeting important, influential people and interacting with them. These are not romantic meetings, but more about professional affinities. The friendships of the 11th house are different from the friendships of the 7th house. The 7th house shows friendships of the heart – you just love these people, regardless of status, position or wealth. The friendships of the 11th house are more platonic – they are friendships of the mind, friendships based on common interests. These latter are what’s happening this year.
Since Jupiter will spend almost all year in your 12th house of spirituality, you are meeting spiritual kinds of people. Perhaps they are corporate types, but they are spiritual. These connections further your spiritual path as well as your career.
On December 20 Jupiter will enter your own sign. This shows that friends are very devoted to you and that you attract friends easily. They seek you out rather than vice versa.
The year ahead is a spiritual kind of year. As we’ve mentioned, your 12th house is easily the strongest in your Horoscope. Get right spiritually, get a good connection with the Divine within and most areas of life – finance, career, friendships – will just fall into place. Even the romantic life is impacted by the spiritual life. Saturn, your spiritual planet, will move into your sign twice this year. (Once a brief foray from March 23 to July 1, and then for the long term from December 18 onwards.) Thus Saturn will start to impact on your Sun. Those of you born early in the sign of Aquarius (January 20–23) are going to feel this the strongest. Keep in mind that the Sun is your love planet. So there is a need for spiritual compatibility with the spouse, partner or current love – and this will get tested during those periods.
Most of you have worldly types of careers, but the real message here is that your spiritual practice, your spiritual growth is the actual career, the actual mission, these days. This has been the case for many years, but it is much more intense now.
Your dream life has been active and prophetic for many years, and now even more so than ever. (When we study this chart we wonder why a person would even bother waking up – the dream life is so much more interesting than the mundane world!) Pay attention to your dreams – they are giving financial and career guidance this year. Career and financial guidance will also come from psychics, astrologers, tarot readers, spiritual channels or gurus. You are making these kinds of friends this year too.
With the 12th house so strong, you live in the supernatural realm. It becomes just as real as the natural realm – maybe even more real. You have all kinds of supernatural-type experiences – synchronicities and ESP. Your spiritual abilities grow and expand.
There will be many spiritual breakthroughs this year – more than you’ve had for the past few years. When these happen it is a most joyous thing. The whole outlook on a given situation (and on life) changes for the better.
Your grasp of the spiritual dimension of wealth is growing year by year. Your ability to access it is also growing. You will have many ‘miracle money’ moments. After a while they will become commonplace – you start to take them for granted (to the amazement of those around you). It becomes natural for spirit to supply you.
You have been a generous giver for years now. And this trend continues in the year ahead. Tithing is an excellent practice, and many of you are already doing this. If not, it is good to get into it. I consider tithing as a form of financial therapy. It opens the doors to the supernatural supply.
