21 January – 19 February
Aquarius: This Week
Your ruling planet Uranus squares Pluto on Tuesday 21st May, leading to a familiar crossroads. Ever since 2010, you have been repeatedly put in a situation where your relatively new ideas about the internet, publishing, media and other platforms have been pushed out into the world. People want to know more – and you do too – hence the journey of experimentation and exploration. This also applies to your voice, no matter if you speak or sing for a living, or as a hobby. There have been other little experiments with your ‘voice’ as well, naturally – on paper, or digitally. And now, it all reaches a profound moment of truth. A vivid confrontation with your own objectives and ideas is coming and if it makes you even more independent, so be it. It is the only way you are going to feel utterly free, and as an Aquarian, that’s part of your mission. The turmoil churns the ground up, beneath your feet, but it brings fertile soil for new growth, fresh ideas, creative new possibilities! The square from Uranus to Pluto also reminds you that everything which is submerged in your life, or yourself, is empowering – if you are prepared to do the work and take the journey. That will really be brought home to you now. Last thoughts on your prediction this week ? You have to make allowances for a shot of pure emotion and passion with your tribe, no matter if this is an old friend, a formal group you belong to, or a casual cluster of people. Cupido in Sagittarius, accompanied by an eclipse in that sign, is likely to send rational thought and old-fashioned common-sense straight out of the window. Let the weekend pass before you return to this issue because a decision is required and as it will affect an outcome near Christmas, you must take your time when you choose. The Gemini stellium is also pushing you forward. You are quite right to have high hopes. This is about your children, godchildren or young relatives. It may be about a professional or philanthropic involvement with younger people. A sexual relationship which may end in pregnancy, adoption, step-parenting or a role with much younger in-laws could also be in the frame. Every Aquarian is different, of course. But what we have here is a rapid period of growth, opportunity, optimism, problem-solving and empire-building. The empire is spiritual, psychological, emotional, soulful – and what occurs once you have lined up the pros and cons with one particular decision, will alter your life for a long time. you can and must have a very particular influence on those who come after you, and this is a potent way into that. Make that choice.

Aquarius: This Month
Home, Household, Family
May is concentrated, like orange juice. Everything about the house, flat, household, family or home turf will seem sharper and stronger. There is an urgency about your situation thanks to Mars, and very quickly, changes will occur, thanks to the kind of news via the real world (or the internet) that could alter your 2012 ideas.
The South Node is in Taurus in your home zone. There will also be profound repetition and familiarity in your life. The blast from the past may be from this life or another.
What happens near Tuesday 7th May is familiar. You’ve been here before, perhaps in a previous life, perhaps in this one, but the sense of déjà vu is remarkable. The eclipse on Friday 10th May is crucial, and you will get more done in two weeks than you have in two months. This will turn things around with a relative, flatmate, house, apartment or home town/homeland matter.
Repetition? C’est la vie. It’s your approach, your attitude, your mindset that is under your control. That can alter as you wish.
Uranus Your Ruling Planet
Uranus your ruling planet squares Pluto near Tuesday 21st May. The situation forced upon you in April made you realise that you could be far more free and much more independent – at least in terms of the internet, publishing, media (or other ways to connect). Perhaps it was about your hearing, voice, writing or language ability. Every Aquarian is on her own path.
What you deal with in May is the reality. You just won’t be heard or read as you were, say, in 2012 or before. You adjusted too rapidly in April – in fact, you almost rushed the change through. Now you must deal with what is actually there.
Pluto in Capricorn tells you that you have been dominated or overwhelmed by someone (or something) which affects what you hide, or what is profoundly hidden in your world. This situation will crack wide open in May and the people or situation in question will be much diminished.
Career, University, Charity
Saturn in Scorpio has been clanging a loud bell about your career, university or charity role – and the volume increases near Wednesday 1st May, Sunday 5th May, Wednesday 15th May, Sunday 19th May. This gives you an opportunity to build your core strength in response to the challenges. The answer may take some time to emerge. What worked for other people may also work for you. Maybe not – but you must find out.
There is always a Sod’s Law feeling about this cycle. It has a heavy feeling of inevitability about it – there is also the sense that something/someone is utterly unavoidable. In fact it is part of being human.
Knowing you share this with other humans helps. But do return to the point of view you adopted last month. You did this to cope, in your own way. Is it still working for you?
The Next Generation
From Thursday 9th May the children, godchildren or young relatives increase in importance and you stand to gain. This also applies to a work or charity connection to younger people, and to relationships which may bring younger people closer, via parenthood or other connections.
From Wednesday 15th May the talking begins, and the weekend of 18th-19th May finds you preparing for a real surge from Monday 20th May, when it all becomes public, so you’ll receive feedback you always needed. Adoption? Pregnancy? Children’s charity? These are just three items on the menu of cosmic possibilities now.
Jupiter’s opposition to Cupid on Thursday 23rd May reminds you that there is still time to plant, plot and plan. To ponder and peruse. To be passionate about the possibilities. Find that date on your calendar and write the letter P on it, to remind yourself.
The penumbral lunar eclipse on Saturday 25th May, and the Mercury-Cupid opposition on Sunday 26th May, show you what might work best.
What happens near Monday 27th and Tuesday 28th should vindicate your faith and from Friday 31st May, you will go full-tilt into June.
Those born 20 years or more after you manifest Jupiter in your life in May and June. Jupiter is the ultimate Roman god. The chief god, who created abundance and ‘bigger, better’ answers. Nothing small about your month. Go with the (vast) flow.
Friends and Groups
Your old or new friends are in focus now. So is a group of people. A team. Near Thursday 23rd May, the situation begins to build in intensity, followed by a decisive eclipse on the weekend of Saturday 25th May. Decision time. Born of passion – nothing more, nothing less!
It’s very likely that the Venus-Cupid opposition on Monday 27th May will prove to you how poets and musicians were right all along. When it comes to particular friends or groups, you simply have to feel the emotion and tune into the soundtrack. To try and make sense of this, or channel it into something practical or logical, is not going to work. I believe, however, that this friendship or tribe will make you feel fully alive.
If there is passion in the mix do not be surprised. Someone in the group or your circle of friends will either throw Cupid’s arrow or be impaled by it. That’s life.
