For many years now you’ve led a nomadic existence. You’ve flitted from place to place and from clime to clime. No one could keep track of you. Your address changed so many times. There was a great need for personal freedom, for breaking out of all personal limitations but now some of this is out of your system and you seem ready to settle down. Your life is becoming more stable. You’ve learned the lessons of freedom and now you’re more about moneymaking, acquiring wealth.
True freedom, after all, means having the wherewithal to be free. Wealth has been important for many years now and is becoming even more important this year and for many years to come. You are well on our way to attainment.
Spirituality has been very important for many years, and this trend will be even further intensified this year and in coming years. Your Ruler, Uranus, now establishes himself in the spiritual Sign of Pisces and Neptune, the most spiritual of all the planets is firmly planted in your own Sign Aquarius. There is much success in this field these days.
Last year, children and creativity were very important you but now you are in a work year, a more serious period but, have no fear, when Jupiter moves into Libra after September 25th you will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy life and the ability to do so properly.
Your major areas of interest in the coming year are the body, the image, personal appearance, finance, health and work, personal transformation, sex, death and rebirth, life after death and the deeper things of life until September 25th and religion, philosophy, metaphysics, higher education and foreign travel, friendships, group activities and organisations after September 25th.
Your paths of greatest fulfilment are home, family an domestic interests, personal transformation, sex, death an rebirth, life after death and the deeper things of life until September 25th and religion, philosophy, metaphysics, higher education and foreign travel after September 25th.
Health was good last year and should be good again this year. There are no major long-term planets stressing you this year but health should get even better after September 25th when Jupiter makes a harmonious aspect to you.
Yet, in spite of these wonderful aspects, I see a very strong 6th House of Health. There is intense interest in this field. I read this as an interest in keeping fit, preventive types of medicine, diet and exercise. You are undertaking health regimes (and disciplined ones) not because of sickness, but for prevention, just for the sake of staying fit.
Saturn is now in your 6th House of Health for the next two years or so. This is showing many things. More attention needs to be paid to your spine, knees, teeth and skeletal alignment than usual. Nothing wrong with these but problems if they happen, are likely to begin there. Regular visits to a chiropractor or osteopath would be advisable. Therapies such as Alexander Technique, which targets the posture and skeletal alignment, would also be good.
Saturn’s perspective on things is always long term. Though you personally are very experimental and love new things merely because they are new, this year, health wise, you are much more conservative. You want therapies that have proven themselves over time. You don’t want quick fixes or ‘faddy’ type things. You are concerned with long-term health.
Saturn also happens to be your Spiritual Planet. He is the Lord of your 12th Solar House. You are also exploring spiritual-type therapies (probably the tried-and-true ones like prayer, meditation, laying on of hands and the like). You will get good results from these things.
Your Spiritual Planet in your House of Health shows that the major health lesson is to seek healing from within. Your connection to the Higher Power is the most important healer. Yes, there is a Divine Physician within to which you have access and connection with this brings enduring health.
The Moon is your Health Planet. Since the Moon rules the stomach and breasts, these organs are also unusually important for overall health. The Moon rules moods, feelings and emotions hence emotional health is part and parcel of physical health. Negative moods are not only unpleasant but have a direct, dramatic, impact on overall health. This is true for everyone to some degree but especially for you.
Since the Moon rules the stomach, diet is more of an issue for you than for most people. Good nutrition is important and consulting with an expert in these things is advisable but just as important as WHAT you eat is HOW you eat. Meals should be taken in a relaxed and calm way. Try to avoid eating when you’re angry or upset. Your thoughts should be elevated and many religious practices make ritual out of eating for this very reason. Saying grace before and after meals in your own words and in your own way is more than just a ‘religious practice’. It has important health benefits as well. Scientific studies have been done that show the impact of thought on the molecular structure of food.
The Moon moves through your entire Horoscope every month, the fastest of all the planets. Healing can come to you in many ways and through many instruments. Health needs can fluctuate weekly and daily depending on what is going on with the Moon, where she is and the aspects she receives. These short-term trends will be covered in the monthly forecasts.
The health of a parent or parent figure seems vastly improved over last year. Health of children likewise. Children and grandchildren benefit from spiritually oriented therapies, which in many cases shows why you’re more interested in these things in the year ahead.
Your 4th House of Home and Family is not a House of Power this year. Though you may have more freedom in this area, you seem to lack the interest to capitalise on this freedom. Basically, a status quo year. I do see some long-term changes caused by the Lunar Eclipse of October 28th but these will in all probability only mean a repair job in the home and a clearing of the air with family members.
Though you lack interest in domestic and family issues, the North Node’s position in your 4th House shows that you will derive great joy and fulfilment from these things. Venus is your Family Planet. She moves through the entire Zodiac every year. (This year she will only move through 11 of the 12 Signs and Houses because she spends over two months retrograde.)
Family trends and family relationships have a ‘short-term’ flavour to them. Nothing is ever written in stone, as things shift very quickly. Today’s fight becomes tomorrow’s love-fest. Today’s crisis is next month’s resolution but Venus will be retrograde from May 19th to June 29th. This is a period in which to avoid making important changes or important decisions regarding the home or family members. These issues should be studied more. Act upon them when the retrograde is over.
Because of her retrograde, Venus will spend a lot of time (four mouths or so) in your 5th House (April 3rd to August 7th). There is a greater focus on children. Aquarians of childbearing age will be more fertile. Even older Aquarians will want more children perhaps through adoption. A relative’s child might stay with you for an extended period. There will be a great interest in making home life more enjoyable more of a place of entertainment than a home. This will be a period where you are purchasing (or receiving) adult or children’s toys for the home. Sporting equipment might come, ping-pong tables, pool tables and the like, games that are games but also like pieces of furniture seem appealing.
Relations with a parent or parent figure are becoming more volatile this year. You will feel more rebellious while he or she might feel that you’re being ‘eccentric’ or strange. Money or other financial issues could be at the root of the problem. Relations with children will fluctuate month to month. Likewise relations with siblings.
Home and domestic concerns seem especially active from April 19th to June 21st. Improving the aesthetics of the home redecoration projects or buying things of beauty for the home go well from March 5th to April 3rd and from April 19th to May 21st. Renovation or heavy construction projects will go better from February 3rd to March 21st, March 5th to March 21st is good for both redecorating or home repairs and construction.
Aquarius 2018 love horoscope
Your 7th House of Love, Romance, Marriage and Social Activities is not a House of Power this year, Aquarius. Since last year was a banner love year, I read this as a good sign. Most of you are satisfied with the love life that you have and have no need to make drastic changes or give this area undue attention. The tendency will be to the status quo. Marrieds will stay married and singles will stay single. Those involved in serious relationships will continue in these relationships.
Life is a circle. The Native Americans call it a ‘sacred hoop’. Different areas of life become more important in different years. This year is more of a money and career year than a love year. Of course you will have a social life but it’s less of a priority these days.
Those of you born late in the Sign (from approximately February 5th to February 19th) still have wonderful social and love aspects and could still marry or enter into a significant relationship. New and significant friends are still coming into the picture.
Friendship is more important this year than love and romance. Now, Aquarians are always into friendships but this year even more so. Your 11th House is strong and has been strong for many years now. This whole area of life is undergoing vast transformation and this process is continuing in the year ahead. Old friendships are dying and new ones are being born. Old social attitudes are dying and new attitudes are being born. You are delving deeply into the meaning of friendship and weeding out bad or false attitudes.
Love and social activities will be most active from July 22nd to August 22nd and from September 6th to October 3rd. Those working towards a second marriage have wonderful love aspects after September 25th, Wedding bells could ring but even if not, this new relationship will be like a marriage. This relationship will start out as a friendship and evolve into something more. You could meet this person through an organisation you belong to, at school or at church, temple, synagogue, mosque or ashram.
Those in a third marriage are facing a crisis in their relationship. Its survival depends on the depth of your commitment to each other. Those looking to marry for a third time could have a few false starts.
Children of marriageable age are having a stormy love life this year. Here, too, I see great change, upheaval and a revamping of love attitudes and needs. Through the experience of love they are learning, as if by looking into a mirror what in themselves needs to be changed.
Grandchildren of marriageable age are prospering and having fun but marriage doesn’t seem on the horizon.
Aquarius 2018 money and career horoscope
Money and earnings have been important for you for many years and their importance is even stronger in the year ahead. For many years you have been involved with your image, your self-concept and personal fulfilment but now you are taking personal charge of your finances. Your financial destiny is in your own hands and you are not delegating these issues to others.
As in past years you are investing in yourself, a wise move, as this tends to be the best investment long term. You are investing in making yourself a better person through studies in self-improvement, personality development and the like and through upgrading and updating your image. You spend lavishly on yourself. You dress expensively. You pamper yourself. You wear expensive jewellery and accessories. You are up to date on all the latest fashion trends. In short, you don the image of wealth and success and as you adopt this image, others see you as wealthy and the wealth vibration increases in your aura. Whether or not you are actually rich, you will dress and accessorise as if you are.
There is a logic to this now. For your personal appearance seems to play an unusually important role in your earnings. It’s as if you are ‘marketing’ yourself, always selling the self. It’s not so much your skills that bring earnings but you appearance and overall demeanour. We often see these aspects in the charts of fashion models, actors and actresses or media types. It is the image that brings the earnings.
You have been cultivating financial intuition for many years now. This trend is even stronger in the year ahead. By now (you have been going through this for about seven years you are more able to discern the difference between instinct and real intuition. Real intuition is ever calm, never in a hurry, never greedy, never mixed with any of the common human passions. It just is for this is the way, walk thou in it.’
In general, wealth is increasing this year. You have a rare combination of desire for wealth with the good aspects that can make it happen. While most of you will never be Bill Gates or Richard Branson (these kinds of people are rare in every age), you should still enjoy a marked increase in personal wealth in the coming year. You will make important progress towards your wealth goals. You will not lack for any material thing in the year ahead.
Your wealth aspects are good all year but will get even better after September 25th as Jupiter, the planet-of abundance starts to make sensational aspects to your Sun Speculations become favourable then. There is more foreign travel. Pay rises and promotions come at work. You gain recognition and even honours. Your self-confidence increases and the ‘wealth people’ in your world take a shine to your image and aspirations.
Those of you looking to pay off debt, refinance existing debt or who are searching for outside capital have wonderful aspects most of the year. This is a year to be achieving these kinds of goals. Those of you involved in tax issues, insurance claims or estates will also hear good news now.
Financial opportunity will come through an uncanny ability to see value where others see only death, decay or junk. Troubled companies, troubled properties perhaps even troubled people that everyone has given up on, junk that floats around in attics or garages all have profit potential for you, if you keep your eyes open.
