    Aquarius, the Water-Bearer in 2005
    A Shift of Cosmic Gears!

    Change comes for the Water Bearer as Jupiter, lord of fortune, Saturn, the measurer of effort and Chiron the wounded healer shift the cosmic gears to set your life on a new and different path in the coming years.

    Chiron the wounded healer moves into your sign on February 21st. He will be there till August 1st and then move back to Capricorn and your solar twelfth house. On December 6th he returns to Aquarius and journeys there over the next four years. Great changes in both 'being' and 'doing' are on the cards for the Water Bearer. There may be new skills to learn and a new path altogether for some. This may come because of changing interests, new connections or concerns about health and lifestyle. You may change where you're going in life because of changes that come in the way you live. For some, health will be influential, simply from an interest point of view or because health concerns bring the need for new practices with daily living and wellbeing. You may form unusual connections with people involved in health or spiritual work, or with those who live in a manner different from your own or unusual in some way. This may mark a change to a more physical life for some. For others, the importance of the physical in daily life will shift. In the overall, changing what you do may bring change in 'who' you are. Conversely, a different sense of 'who' you are may bring change to what you do. This is a powerful transit that will see many Water Bearers living life differently after the next four years.

    On July 16th, Saturn, measurer of effort moves to Leo and your solar seventh house. This will bring changes with partnership and make this a potent year for relationships. For some, there will be an increase in responsibilities as you enter a new phase with loved ones. For others there may be a break or separation in a close tie. In some cases, the separation may mark the end of a cycle. For singles, you may enter into an important relationship that will be part of your future. You may struggle at times with the commitment this requires but can benefit greatly if you work to understand what the relationship asks of you and how to give that and yet remain an independent being.

    If you're in a close relationship, this can be a 'make or break period' as you encounter obstacles or opposition with your loved one. There may be a battle of wills between you or it may simply be that you wish to somehow pursue different courses or that you are called in different directions. If you deal with these matters patiently, you will come through to a stronger situation and a better sense of your bond. Some of you will find partners or close associates ask more of you while others may find that partners need more distance or freedom. In either case, negotiate a position then step up and meet the requirements. Watch health and energy during this process, as you'll often be asked to give the most at the point where you're tired or stretched. Don't be afraid to step forward. The more you take on, the greater will be the reward at the end of the journey.

    Late July and early August will be a testing period in close relationships. You may need to work towards new understandings or new practices with those close to you. You will have to come to grips with the fact that a good relationship requires work and you may need to learn new skills in order to give of your best and get the best from your partner in return. There may be new requirements for being together that have to be met. Don't engage in a battle of wills at this time. Try to see both sides of any issues.

    2005 Aquarius Love and Money Love and Money Go to Top

    With Mercury the messenger and Venus the goddess conjoining with Pluto, underworld lord in Sagittarius and your solar eleventh house, friendships and your hopes and dreams will play a big part in both the romantic and financial sides of your life. Both singles and those with partners can have an exciting time, making new friends or finding new depths to old friendships. New ideals and dreams will call you along the road of life and there will be someone there to walk with you or to guide you. Harmonious aspects from Jupiter to Mercury and Venus indicate that luck and opportunity coming from those you know will play a strong part in your life. Travel, study and fortune generally will broaden your horizon and help you to find the right path in life. For those single, an important new romance may evolve from a friendship or association. Groups, group work and gatherings will bring you into contact with people who will be important for you and may become close. The Lunar Nodes moving through Aries and Libra will bring interesting and vigorous connections.

    Uranus, the revolutionary one is established in Pisces and your solar second house to journey there for seven years. There will be radical shifts with money and many of you will come to a change of fortune over this time, suddenly or unexpectedly. Some will reach new heights while others will level off. Some of you will alter the way you spend money while others will make change to the way you earn it. Some may diversify earning power as others try to consolidate. Uranus brings about reversals and radical shifts. For those who have had little interest in finance in the past, there may be a sudden surge of energy. Thus, some will be inclined to take risks or gamble with money for the first time while the speculators may decide to go down a more conservative road. Some will move away from a material view, taking an interest in creative or spiritual matters, even giving to charitable or humanitarian work. Some will accumulate material possessions while others decide to shed them. Whatever the change, the important thing is that you will view possessions and financial life from a new perspective.

    2005 Aquarius Home and Family Home and Family Go to Top

    The most important triggers for change with regard to home and family will be changes in work or in your relationship situation. Your domestic and emotional life may go through a transformation because of changing associations. You may change your living situation because of changed working conditions. Your primary relationship may undergo a change thus altering your domestic life.

    2005 Aquarius Work and Health Work and Health Go to Top

    Saturn, measurer of effort, is set to finish his run in Cancer and your solar sixth house of work and health as the year begins. Thus, you have the first seven months to get daily routines and general healthcare into order. If you experience health difficulties or changed health conditions, act promptly and seek treatment. One of the important issues here is self-nurture. Be specific, practical and immediate. Put new regimes of healthcare in place, as and when necessary. An increased workload or new line of work may come for some, if it hasn't already. You may be operating in solitary capacity or taking more responsibility than usual. For some, family may be involved with business or work. You need to balance the demands of work with changed healthcare requirements. Don't focus on work at the expense of health. For some, work routines will have to be well structured. For others, there will be a higher organizational content in what you do. Dealings with older people or those in authority may be part and parcel of daily routine. Saturn moves to the sign of Leo and your solar seventh house on July 16th.

    2005 Aquarius Career Matters Career Matters Go to Top

    Jupiter begins the year in Libra, encouraging you towards study, overseas travel and a broader more philosophical view, urging you Water Bearers towards new horizons, literal and metaphorical. Some of you will be preparing to cross the frontiers of the mind by studying, expanding both knowledge and skills. This may be to prepare for a career move or change or simply out of general interest. Others will be attending the 'university of life', opening up to a wider picture. There may be developing associations or companionship with people of status, those of other cultures and those of academic standing. There can be a better 'all round' sense of the world you live in as a result of this transit.

    From October 26th, Jupiter, lord of fortune moves through Scorpio and your solar tenth house of career, status and dealings with authority. This is a time to expand your career horizons or launch a new career bid. There may be promotional possibilities or opportunity for advancement. You may need to invest money in the work or career opportunities you seek. You may make fortunate connections with people of status or authority. These may advance your work situation. For some there may be an end to a career cycle that in itself sets a new one in motion. For others, a change or an ending with people in your work situation may advance your own status.

    You may have significant dealings with people in power or with those of status or great wealth. Some of you may find you are hungry for power or advancement where others may want to know the truth about power or people in power. Some of you may see a side to those in authority you do not like while others may be caught up in a search for truth or deeper meaning, one that takes you down the corridors of power. Be considered with any career decisions in mid December, especially those that may have a bearing on home or personal life. You may need to delay the final choice. There may be conflicting advice from others as to what it's best for you to do. You may need to trust your inner guidance or instincts rather than the advice of others. The way forward may not be as it seems or is represented to you.

    2005 Aquarius Mercury the MessengerMercury the Messenger  Go to Top

    Mercury moves into retrograde (reverse) motion three times a year for about three weeks each time. This phase heralds a time of confusion and misunderstandings that can affect arrangements, travel, transport, appliances, machinery and communications. The breakdowns that occur are a function of neglect, inattention, simple misunderstandings or component failure. They will often bring to the fore the very contingency we should have planned for and didn't. When the retrograde phase occurs, watch out for such possibilities as well as putting off major decision-making or the signing of crucial documents and agreements. We tend to miss things while Mercury is in reverse motion and then have to come back and do them again. A process of review in the retrograde phase can efficiently show where problems might lie and help us with damage control or the mending of things. Double check arrangements at these times! What you think you've said and what others have understood will often prove to be two different things.

    The messenger's first retrograde cycle begins on March 20th in the sign of Aries and your solar third house. You may rush but seem to get nowhere. Watch travel safety. There may be confusion or unexpected developments with communications or arrangements. Appliances or vehicles may break down or fail to perform. There may be confusion or conflict with siblings or neighbours. You may have to revise plans or ideas. As tension with Jupiter is involved, there may be disputes to resolve or concerns with legal matters or studies. Don't react in an exaggerated manner. Work around exaggerated responses in others. This cycle ends on April 12th.

You may need to discuss outstanding matters with a partner or to review your situation. Your partner may have something to say. You may come back into contact with someone with whom you've been closely associated in the past. You may need to review your plans with a partner and discuss where to go from here. This cycle ends on August 16th.

    Mercury's final retrograde phase begins on November 14th, coming in Sagittarius and your solar eleventh house. There may be changes with your own hopes and wishes for the future. You may lose faith or stumble with an important dream. Review your options. See if there's another way to proceed. There may be changes in your circle of friends.

    2005 Aquarius Special Event Special Events Go to Top

    Warrior Mars turns retrograde in Taurus and your solar fourth house on October 1st. As Mars moves backwards, there may be delays or obstruction. There can be frustration with taking action or initiative. Hidden anger may also be an issue. Thus, difficulty or delay will be on the domestic or emotional agenda for the Water Bearer at this time. Some may deal with an errant or angry male. There may be a male member of the family who is impaired with regard to action or movement. This could be a health matter or may pertain to work issues. There may be projects or activities at home that face obstacles or come to a halt. You may simply not be able to advance something that you want to do around the home. There may be sexual issues to face for some while for others there may be a sexual renewal with someone who has been away or out of your life.

    The key to working with Mars retrograde is to be able to slow down any process you're involved in and review your approach or method of taking action. Don't set yourself for a battle of wills and just push ahead regardless. Go back to basics or back to the beginning of what you're trying to do and observe how you've been doing it. Revise your action style accordingly. Take care with safety in work around the home. Be especially careful with the handling of fire, water and any kind of chemical in the first two weeks of November. You may need to be careful of making long term or important decisions about the home or family life in mid December. Retrograde Mars lasts until December 10th.

    On Christmas Eve, Venus the goddess begins a reverse motion phase in your sign, conjoined with Chiron the wounded healer. You may go through a change of image or of personal practice. The relationship you're in may reach a crucial phase and need to alter its nature or operations. Someone new may enter your life and have a powerful influence on where you go from here. You may be a teacher or an influence for change in someone else's life. You may go back to something you have been or done in the past. You may come back to a past association. Health and health practices may become a significant influence on lifestyle and direction for you and your partner. This influence continues into the next year.
