Health and energy need more attention this year: two powerful, not-to-be-toyed-with long-term planets are in stressful alignment with you all year. This in itself is not the problem. It’s when the short-term planets also join the party that problems can happen. More details later.
In spite of your lower than usual energy, many nice things are happening in the year ahead, Aquarius. You are super prosperous. Your money house is prominent, and beneficent Jupiter will spend half the year here. More on this later.
On May 11 Jupiter will move into your 3rd house and will spend the other half of the year here. This is a wonderful transit for students below the college level. They succeed in their studies. It is also great for writers, journalists, teachers, sales and marketing people. They should have a good financial year.
Saturn has been in your 1st house since December , a transit which has good points and difficult points. The good points are a serious attitude to life. It shows someone who takes responsibility for things – perhaps too much. It shows a person with good management and organizational skills. But there is a dark side to this. Saturn in your own house can make you overly pessimistic. You feel your age and physical limitations very acutely. There can be a tendency to be ‘over serious’ and this can impact your marriage and love life. More on this later.
Pluto has been in your 12th house for twenty years or so. This shows a complete transformation happening in your spiritual life. This is still going on this year, but Pluto will leave in 2024 and the strongest effects of the transit are over with now.
Uranus has been in your 4th house for some years now, signalling a focus on the family and family instability. The emotional life can also be highly unstable. More details later.
Your most important interests this year are the body, image and personal appearance; finance; communication and intellectual interests (from May 11 to October 29 and from December 21 onwards); home and family; and spirituality.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment will be finance (until May 11 and from October 29 to December 21); communication and intellectual interests (from May 11 to October 29 and from December 21); and home and family.
(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 these days there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)
Health, as we mentioned, needs keeping an eye on this year. The problem is that your 6th house of health is not prominent – not a house of power – and thus your tendency is to ignore things. You sort of take good health for granted. You could do this in the past but not since last year. You will need to force yourself to pay attention.
Since your energy levels are not up to their usual standard, your first line of defence is to maintain high energy levels. If you feel tired, rest. If you’re working out and feel some discomfort, there’s no need to push things; rest and return to your workout later – or perhaps reduce it to a comfortable level. Listen to the messages of your body.
Also, you can give more attention to the following areas – the vulnerable areas of your Horoscope this year (the reflex points are shown in the chart below). Since problems are most likely to begin here, keeping them healthy and fit is sound preventive medicine.
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. Also, pay special attention to the ankles.
- The heart became an important area since March 2019, when Uranus moved into stressful aspect with you. It became even more important last year as Saturn joined the party in making a stressful aspect. The reflex is shown above. I have found that chest massage – massage of the breastbone and upper rib cage – strengthens the heart. On a more metaphysical level, avoid worry and anxiety, the two emotions that stress out the heart. Replace worry with faith. Meditation is a big help for this.
- The ankles and calves are always important for Aquarius. Both the ankles and calves should be regularly massaged. Feel for sore spots and massage them out. It should be a regular part of your normal health regime. A weak ankle can knock the spine and skeleton out of alignment and this will cause all kinds of other problems. Give the ankles more support when exercising.
- The stomach and breasts. These areas are always important for Aquarius too, as the Moon is your health planet. The reflexes are shown above. Diet is always an issue with you (not so for everyone, by the way). What you eat is important, and should be checked with a professional, but how you eat is just as important. Work to elevate the act of eating from mere animal appetite to an act of worship. Grace should be said (in your own words) before and after meals. Food should be blessed (in your own words). A good idea to have nice soothing music playing while you eat. These practices will not only elevate the energy vibrations of the food but of your body and digestive system as well. You will get only the highest and best from the food you eat and what you eat will digest better. Regular breast check-ups for women is a good idea.
The Moon also rules your emotional life. So, good emotional health is very important. There is a need to keep the moods and emotions constructive and happy. If health problems (God forbid) arise, restore harmony in the family as quickly as possible. Regular meditation will help keep your moods positive.
Your health planet is the fastest-moving planet in the zodiac, moving through your whole chart in any given month. Thus, there are many short-term health trends that depend on where the Moon is and the aspects she receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
Home and Family
Your 4th house of home and family has been prominent ever since March 2019 when Uranus moved in there, and it will remain prominent for some years to come (next year especially). The good news is that you are focused here in a very personal way. This ensures that you will get ‘best case’ scenarios.
The family situation is ultra-volatile these days. There are many dramas and crises in the family. There can be splits in the family circle as well. It will take all of your focus to hold things together.
Mood swings, in yourself and perhaps in family members, are very extreme as well. Meditators can keep this under control with meditation, but others might have to medicate.
The problem with these mood swings is that you don’t know where you stand with family members from one moment to the next. You never know when they will erupt. You have to be on your toes all the time. These are not things you can figure out logically.
Uranus in the 4th house signals multiple moves or much renovation in the home. The home is a continuous work in progress. We have written of this in past reports and it still applies in the year ahead. It’s as if you are searching for your dream home and every time you think you’ve got it, a new idea, a new vision comes to you and you start again. Little by little you are being led to your dream home and dream family situation.
You seem very devoted to a parent or parent figure, but he or she seems restless and unstable. He or she has a passion for personal freedoms these days – and wants to shed him or herself of all burdens and responsibilities.
Two eclipses in the coming year occur in your 4th house. One is a solar eclipse on April 30 and the other is a lunar eclipse on November 8. These will further shake up the family situation. But the good news is that they force much-needed course corrections in the home and family life.
Renovations or construction work in the home can happen all year, but if you have the choice July 4 to August 20 will be a good time. If you’re beautifying the home in a cosmetic kind of way – or buying art objects for the home – May 28 to June 23 is a good time.
One of the parents or parent figures in your life is moving around a lot – perhaps staying in different places for long periods of time. But a formal move is not likely. (There is nothing against it, however.)
Siblings and sibling figures are prospering this year. If they are of childbearing age, they are more fertile than usual, but a move doesn’t seem likely. Children and children figures in your life are having a quiet, stable home and family year, likewise grandchildren (if you have them).
Finance and Career
As we mentioned, the year ahead is very prosperous. Your money house is not only prominent but contains beneficent Jupiter. Jupiter, the planet of abundance and expansion, is more munificent than usual. For a start, he will be in his own sign and house for half the year. He is comfortable in Pisces and acts strongly. But he is also travelling with Neptune, your financial planet for a good part of the year. You will end the year much richer than you began.
Jupiter rules your 11th house. This gives many messages. First it is another signal of Jupiter’s beneficence as the 11th house is a beneficent house. But it would also show earnings from the online world, from social networking and technology. Whatever you actually do, the online world and your technological expertise is important. You spend more on technology but will earn from it as well. Your friends are rich and they seem to provide opportunity. Fondest financial hopes and wishes are coming true this year. (And, once that happens, you will most likely formulate a new set of ‘fondest hopes and wishes’.)
Aside from technology, you have a good feeling for industries that involve water – water utilities, water bottlers and purifiers, shipping, shipbuilders, fisheries, the seafood business, oil, natural gas and certain pharmaceuticals (makers of aesthetic and mood enhancers). These are all interesting as jobs, businesses or investments.
Jupiter will move into your 3rd house on May 11. This will bring a new car and communication equipment – it could happen next year too.
Pluto, your career planet, has been in your spiritual 12th house for a couple of decades now. He will still be there in the year ahead, but next year he will begin (on and off) to transition into your 1st house. So career changes will be happening and you’re getting prepared for them. Two eclipses in your 10th house of career will also spur you to alter things. The lunar eclipse of May 16 and the solar eclipse of October 25 both occur in your 10th house. These changes will be positive.
For the past twenty years your success has been hidden – behind the scenes. Soon, in the next couple of years or so, your success will be more overt – out there for all to see.
In the meantime, you still favour not-for-profit organizations and altruistic kinds of careers. You’ve needed a career that was meaningful to you and to the world. We have written about this in past reports and the trend continues in the year ahead.
Those of you born early in the sign – January 20–22 – are feeling Pluto’s influence in your 1st house even now. You are adopting the image of success. People see you this way. Career opportunities seek you out and there’s not much you need to do.
Love and Social Life
Your 7th house of love hasn’t been prominent in years and neither is it this year. It is practically empty – only short-term planets will move through there and their effect is temporary. This shows a status quo kind of love year. Singles will tend to stay single and those who are married will tend to stay married. In a way this is good. You seem content with things as they are and have no need to give it undue focus.
There is another issue here that reinforces what we say. Almost all the long-term planets (with the exception of Uranus) are in the Eastern sector of your chart – the sector of self. Your 1st house of self is prominent, while your 7th house is empty. So, this is a ‘me’ kind of year. It is about getting your personal desires and interests in order, about finding personal happiness rather than pleasing others, about asserting your independence. You are more self-contained this year.
The Western social sector of your chart will strengthen as the year progresses, but it will never be stronger than the East. The Eastern sector will always dominate.
The Sun is your love planet. He is a fast-moving planet and will cycle through your entire horoscope every year, initiating many short-term love trends that depend on where the Sun is and the kinds of aspects he receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
Two solar eclipses this year (this is pretty much the norm for every year) will shake up the love life and bring course corrections in love. There is a solar eclipse on April 30 and another one on October 25. We will discuss them more fully in the monthly reports.
So far we’ve been discussing those of you in or working on your first marriage. But the same holds true for those of you who are in or working on their second marriage – the situation is stable. Those working on their third marriage have good romantic aspects this year. Your social grace is very strong. This could involve a wealthy person or someone who is involved in your financial life. He or she could be ‘just a friend’ up till now, but it could develop into something more.
The area of friendships seems more active than romance. While Jupiter is in Pisces, your money house (until May 11 and from October 29 to December 21), you meet friends and have social opportunities as you pursue your financial goals and with people involved in your finances. From May 11 to October 29 and from December 21 onwards you find friends in the neighbourhood and in educational-type settings.
Parents and parent figures are having their marriages tested these days. If they are single, marriage is not advisable. In contrast, siblings and sibling figures are having a quiet love and social year. They too seem more into a ‘me’ kind of year.
Children and children figures in your life are having a good love and social year. They are focused on this and will tend to be successful. They are attracted to people of status and prestige, and they are meeting these kinds of people this year. Grandchildren, if you have them, have great romantic opportunity from May 11 onwards. Much depends on their age. If they are old enough, serious romance can happen – even marriage. Younger grandchildren are making new and significant friends.
With Neptune, the most spiritual of the planets, as your financial planet, intuition and the spiritual laws of prosperity are always important to you – a lifelong interest. Ever since Neptune moved into Pisces in 2012 this interest has deepened and we have written of this in past reports. This year, the interest strengthens further as Jupiter moves into Pisces and travels with your financial planet for a good part of the year. This transit signals financial intuition on steroids. Not only will you have good financial intuition this year, but many of your past intuitions will be shown to be true. There is natural money – money that is earned in seemingly natural ways, through our work, parents, spousal support, investments, etc. – and there is ‘miracle money’, money that comes out of the blue, in ways that you never imagined. (Now even natural money is really ‘miracle money’ only it is disguised – all affluence comes from the spirit.) This is a year for miracle money. Natural money is very wonderful, and we should be grateful for it. But miracle money is much more joyful.
Most of you already know much about spiritual affluence, but there’s always more to learn. And this is a year for it. You will know, without a doubt, that there is a power that cares about you and supplies you. No matter what is going on in the world, or how much money you have or don’t have in the bank – its supply is unfailing, so long as we operate its laws.
You will receive financial guidance in dreams, through hunches, so-called ‘gut feelings’, psychics, tarot readers, spiritual channels and ministers.
You are generally a charitable person, and this year even more so. But it’s probably wise to keep your giving proportional – a certain percentage of earnings. Tithing is an excellent practice (and this has been the case for many years now). Proportionate giving will keep you from getting carried away and doing too much. Giving opens the spiritual doors of supply.
Saturn, your spiritual planet, has been in your sign since , as we’ve mentioned. This is a great transit for many things. You have good management and executive ability. You are able to get the body and image in the right shape: you are more disciplined about this. This is an excellent year for losing weight if you need to. However, and we wrote about this last year too, it is not great for love and social relationships. You tend to be cool and detached by nature. But these days perhaps more so. This is not a conscious thing. You’re under Saturn’s influence. It’s as if you took a drug and this is one of the side effects. People can be put off by feelings of coldness and distance. They feel there are barriers around you that can’t be penetrated. They feel it is difficult to get close to you. The good news is that this is easily correctable. Make it your mission to project warmth and love to others. Do this every day and watch the social life improve.
