Aquarius (Born January 21 to 30) – 0 to 10 degrees Aquarius:
2013: Aquarius Horoscope: Love, Career, & General Trends
2013 Overview for all Aquarians.
Not everyone knows this about your sign, dear Aquarius, but people born under this sign and those with an Aquarius Ascendant really take their career, income, and service to others to heart. They need to feel good on a deep level about what they do in order to feel good about themselves.
In 2013, you will dig deep into true motives and feelings about practical matters, and you have the chance to come to a harmonious position or stance. While the steps you take may not be giant or quick, you can be making significant changes as you come to a better understanding of what it is you can and want to do in your work. You’ll also discover some of your most natural talents and put them to work for you. The focus now is on really enjoying what you do. Although work can bring joy, it can also bring some challenges. Discriminate carefully when it comes to taking on new work or projects. There can be some feelings of blockage before you move forward. Circumstances will conspire to remind you of the importance of structure, responsibility, and reputation in your life. It’s time to realign your goals with what’s inside. Many of you will be making changes so that your career path better reflects the principles closest to your heart.
But 2013 is certainly not all about work, especially in the first half of the year, when you find new avenues for entertainment and self-expression open up to you. Early February and late May are especially strong for fun and games, and also for romance. August can be busy with revelations and epiphanies for close relationships, but it can also be a time when you are tempted to overload yourself with work, so do your best to strike a good balance.
Also, take extra care of your health in August. All year, you are making big changes in terms of growing past stubborn attitudes and beliefs, communicating more openly and frequently, and changing deeply ingrained habits and systems of doing things. There can be times when private or past matters come to light and, while it may feel uncomfortable at first, it can also help release you from the past. You are redefining your attitude towards money and possessions this year. While others may not always notice your struggles or rush to your aid this year with Saturn in challenging aspect to your sign, you nevertheless have some good energy with you to express yourself creatively and originally, and your personal magnetism runs high.
Until June 25th, Jupiter continues to move through your solar fifth house. During this cycle, you are likely to see benefits, and experience growth, in the areas of romance, pleasure, creative expression, hobbies, entertainment, and children. Your fair share of fun, romance, and good times are in store. Your willingness to enjoy yourself and explore your creativity now brings new opportunities, or you might find that avenues open up to you for exploring new ways of having fun.
For example, you might meet a new friend who spurs you to go out more, or you could be inspired by someone else’s creative projects and begin a new and rewarding hobby. Creative projects are likely to fare well during this cycle, and could possibly even bring some type of recognition or reward. Love and romance may come into your life or an existing romance is enhanced with good humor and warmth. You might find that possibilities for casual love relationships open up to you now, and some of you could be overwhelmed with choices! Social engagements abound.
For single Aquarians, meeting a special person is highly likely, although it’s more likely to be a casual relationship than a committed partnership.
Investments in stocks and other speculative matters could earn profits. Healthy, wise risks are likely to pay off, but be careful of overconfidence in speculative investments.
Relationships with your children may be especially fulfilling now. Pregnancy or childbirth may occur during this period, if applicable.
This is a fabulous period in which to take a vacation you’ve always wanted to take, to try out a new hobby or creative project/approach, to explore new ways of having fun, to enjoy single life, and so forth.
Those with artistic or athletic talent can be especially successful and prosperous at this time. Your creativity and social life are stimulated this year, and plenty of opportunities to express yourself uniquely and creatively are likely to present themselves. You may find great joy and reward in your creative projects and hobbies. Pleasure-seeking activities, recreation, and amusement are increased. You are far less inhibited when it comes to expressing yourself creatively, and you are a lot more fun to be around! These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. Sometimes Jupiter brings too much of a good thing, and it’s always wise to enjoy a carefree (not careless) attitude. You are learning to express yourself playfully and creatively without apology, and more willing to take some personal risks in order to do so.
A potential negative of this transit is excessive emphasis on, or attention to, having fun to the detriment of other life departments.
Some of you may have recently, or might this year, turn a friendship into a romance. Friends can be instrumental in getting you out and about, or could turn you on to a new hobby or form of recreation. Romantic opportunities tend to abound during this cycle. Creatively speaking, you can be filled with ideas and plans for realizing a dream. Some of you could be welcoming another person’s children into your experience.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar fifth house, from January 30th to June 25th.
Jupiter entering Cancer on June 25th puts this planet of growth and expansion in your solar sixth house. From June 2013 to July 2014, you are likely to see benefits in the areas of work and health, as well as daily routines. This transit enhances your ability to handle the details required to do a good job, and others become more aware of your skills. Benefits may come through work itself, co-workers, or employees during this cycle.
Any type of service that you may provide is likely to go well now, mainly because you are finding more joy in being of service. You are more successful in hiring good workers, if applicable, and improvements to your working environment are likely. You find more enjoyment in the work you do, and it is easier than usual to find employment now. You may get a new job during this cycle. Work tends to be very available to you–perhaps even too available in that you don’t know which one to choose. The best way to handle this transit is to take pride in and recognize your usefulness–this is bound to give you a great deal of joy, and you are likely to be rewarded as a result.
As well, the more integrity, directness, and honesty you bring to your services and work, the more “payback” you will receive.
Health is likely to prosper now, and medical procedures or programs, if necessary, are more apt to be successful. There may be an inclination to put on some weight, however, if you don’t watch your appetite and/or choice of food.
Some people get a new pet during this cycle, and this brings them much joy. These positive circumstances won’t necessarily fall into your lap, and are unlikely to come all at once. You need to keep your eyes open for opportunities in these areas of life. Sometimes Jupiter brings too much of something, and this could mean taking on more work than you can handle, getting lost in the details and organization necessary to keep your daily life running smoothly, and so forth. Watch that overconfidence doesn’t lead you to overload your plate.
Because Jupiter rules your solar eleventh house and it’s now transiting your solar sixth house, you might make new friends through or at your work. You are bringing fresh and original ideas to the work you do and the services you offer. Overload or the magnification of problems surrounding work can be experienced during this cycle, and are more likely in August, when you may be pulled in different directions due to a chaotic schedule or possibly circumstances that prevent you from fulfilling your responsibilities.
You can be very focused on what really matters to get ahead, and recognition for your efforts may be forthcoming, particularly in July and December, when higher-ups recognize your talents and efforts.
The most favorable periods for these matters occur while Jupiter is in direct motion in your solar sixth house, from June 25th to November 6th. (This transit lasts until July 2014).
Since October 2012, Saturn has been transiting your solar tenth house. This long-term transit is with you throughout 2013 and beyond. This cycle represents a time in your life in which you build a secure foundation in your professional and/or most public life. Your standing in society comes under Saturn’s scrutiny. You have found yourself in the spotlight, and what it is exactly that you have been building has come up for inspection.
Some of you find yourself receiving recognition and career “rewards” at this time. If this transit occurs in early adulthood, it is a time when you truly begin to face your duties as a career person. Although the tenth house is a house of ambition, you do not focus on where you are going as much as you focus on where you stand.
Saturn’s transit of the tenth house is an eye-opening one—a time when you are working hard, taking on your fair share of duties and responsibilities, and either reaping some of the rewards of your hard work or facing the consequences of poor choices.
You become aware of what you have and haven’t accomplished to date. You are now treated to a realistic look at what you have built and achieved. You no longer view your place in the world, your career, and your reputation with rose-colored glasses.
At times you may feel exposed, publicly scrutinized, or under fire in your career. If this discomfort is great, it is only due to the fact that you may have been holding onto a false image of yourself. Saturn’s square to your Sun is not exactly what one would call a pleasant influence, but it’s designed to slow you down a little so that you can re-assess matters and come face to face with reality.
As Saturn squares your Sun until October, distinct pressures can begin to build up. More responsibilities on your shoulders could weigh you down a little, and life slows down a tad. Dealing with Saturn squares involves recognizing the need to slow down, face reality, and humble yourself a little.
Pressures from your professional life are likely, but needn’t be overwhelming. You are likely to have new or increased responsibilities, and it might take some time to get adjusted to them. Your ego may be a little frail at this point, and, as a result, you may be harder on yourself than you need be. Much can be accomplished during this period. Although you may not see immediate results for your efforts, important groundwork can be laid for the future.
The North Node of the Moon is also transiting your solar tenth house, and this suggests that some of the greatest joys – and challenges – come through your career and public life. This is a time for putting yourself out there and for meeting your responsibilities.
Uranus, your ruling planet, is in Aries, and this brings a bolder, more assertive, and more independent tone to your self-expression.
For those of you born January 25-30, and those with an Aquarius Ascendant of 4-1/2 to 10 degrees, Uranus harmonizes your Sun and transits your solar third house this year. New opportunities to express yourself, particularly through speaking and writing, can suddenly enter your life. You are likely to make changes in your life that break you out of your usual routines. These changes are unlikely to be jarring or dramatic–quite the contrary! It feels good to break out of your shell a little and to take a few healthy risks. Acquaintances, siblings, or casual friends and communications may be catalysts for this new self-expression. You may make little changes to your personal appearance or to your mannerisms that reflect the changes going on inside. A desire to live in a more free-spirited manner is with you this year. Your life is livelier than usual, but not hectic, and this allows you to enjoy yourself. Uranus in your solar third house indicates that you may be easily bored or distracted when it comes to traditional mental pursuits. You may pick up a brand new study this year. Exposure to new ideas open up new worlds to you.
The influence of Neptune is similar to last year for most of you. Neptune continues to transit your first house, as it has been doing for a number of years. You are increasingly less focused on your own self-centered needs, more universal in your concerns, and more open to the intangible realms of inspiration and beauty. However, for those born January 21-26, Neptune transits your solar second house this year. Neptune’s influence in the second house has the effect of changing your value system. You may be careless with your money during this long-term cycle. Some financial insecurity may be part of the picture. Watching out for scams or risky speculative investments is necessary. Ideally, you will be learning to detach yourself in some way from your material possessions. This doesn’t mean that you have to lose income or give up all your possessions by all means, because true detachment leads to the kind of attitude that attracts exactly what you need.
Eclipses in 2013 fall mostly in your fourth and tenth houses. It’s time to take steps to improve your family and home life. You may need to review and change your career goals as well. Career matters come to a head. You may be challenged to perform and prove your competence this year. In October, a Lunar Eclipse in Aries gives you a cosmic push to become more active in your immediate environment (neighborhood, with siblings/relatives, etc.), and/or to learn and communicate facts that fuel your opinions. This theme will continue into 2014. Transportation and mobility may become an issue. For example, some of you may be learning to depend on others for getting from point A to point B, and others may be learning to take charge of their own mobility.
Your ruler squares Pluto from May to November, and this can introduce some intensity to your personality, although this is not a new energy for you (you experienced this in 2012 as well). This influence also stimulates the need to make fundamental changes. You may be dealing with vague fears and insecurities that undermine your confidence in your mental output. Decision-making can suffer as a result. You are not completely sure what to believe or trust. Ultimately, you discover that your intuition does work for you, as long as you act from your heart rather than from a place of rebellion.
There is more determination to realize your business goals and to improve your income from business. You are in a strong position this year for improving your practical affairs, including income and work matters, and this is especially so in July. This is a time for turning dreams into reality in these areas of life. More security in your job is likely. You are more willing than usual to work diligently for money, and your natural talents are likely to be utilized more in the work you do, and appreciated by others. Perfecting your particular craft is natural this year. Work done behind the scenes may be revealed or incorporated into your career or public life. Past efforts pay off now. However, in August there may be some tensions when you experience a feeling of overload, past problems can resurface, or there can be some health hiccups that take you away from your work.
