    Aquarius, the Water-Bearer in 2006
    Personal Change – New Directions

    A Grand Cross, formed in fixed signs, ushers in the year 2006. Neptune hovers in Aquarius, opposing Saturn in your partnership house as warrior Mars is on the last of his long stay in Taurus and your house of home and family. Mars opposes Jupiter in Scorpio and your house of profession, status and authority. There is a doorway here, Aquarius, but, to go through it in 2006, you'll need to work to rebalance and then maintain the key areas of life, home and career, self and partnership. Mars and Jupiter will test the balance of home and career or professional dealings, urging you to push forward or break through, using both action and insight. Yet, you will need to maintain the peace of family or domestic life. With Neptune and Chiron in your sign, personal change, new directions, unusual ideas, pursuits and connections will feature. These two set themselves in balance with Saturn, the measurer of effort, as he rings the changes in your house of partnership.

    With Saturn in Leo there will be changes in the structure or operation of relations with partners or close associates. Some will have increased responsibility for loved ones while others may have a break or separation. In some cases, the separation may mark the end of a cycle. Singles may enter into an important relationship that will be part of the future but you may struggle at times with the commitment this requires. You will benefit if you work to understand what the relationship asks, how to give it and yet how to maintain your independence. 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. Deal with these matters patiently and you'll come through to a stronger situation and a better sense of your bond.

    Some of you will find partners or close associates ask more 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 in the end.

    2006 Aquarius Love and Money Love and Money Go to Top

    With Venus in reverse motion in your sign, you may have to go back over something or deal with outstanding matters as the year begins. This may involve romance or money. It may also be a more personal matter of how you present or deal with things. There may be a cost for something done in the past or a bill you've already run up. Sort out unresolved issues or dealings to clear the way ahead for later. You may decide to go back to a past situation or the past may in some way or other be drawn back to you. You may have to care for someone for a time or give extra care to yourself. There may be secret or hidden dealings with others that will bring surprises or results that only come further down the line. You may have a secret, a hidden need or desire or an event from the past that must to come to light so you can move freely into the future. The Water Bearer does not always easily look back. The future is the orientation of your sign. However, you will draw great benefit from attending to the outstanding or the overdue as you wend your way.

    On Jun 22nd, the Lunar Nodes move out of Aries and Libra and into Pisces and Virgo. Finances will come into focus, as will financial connections or people who deal in money. You may need to rationalize your financial situation. Trim the tree of lifestyle spending and get back to the basics. There may be unexpected expenses or changes that will change your dreams or your goals. Some may opt for a simpler financial framework where others may go into the detail and complexity of intricate financing. Change or unexpected events that involve earth and water may change your financial position.

    2006 Aquarius Home and Family Home and Family Go to Top

    Warrior Mars is in Taurus and bound by the Grand Cross formation, with Saturn in Leo, Jupiter in Scorpio and Neptune in your sign. There may be a strong activity cycle at home. You may renovate, repair or maintain the home with vigour or in testing conditions. You may do so for personal, investment or professional reasons. For some, it may come out of necessity. There may, in time, be a complete renewal or transformation of the domicile.

    There may be tension at home, either due to male children or other males that reside there. It's not a good year for a male house or flat mate if you're not used to the energy or they're not of the sensitive variety. There may be sexual electricity with a partner. You could be hot in the boudoir! However, there could be tension over sexual differences or a lack of sex life due to other commitments for either or both of you. Males may be accident prone or given to displays of temper at home. Insight into what's wrong will be necessary to solve problems. You may have to work on a relationship with someone at home to create a peace for yourself.

    button Work and Health Go to Top

    Chiron the wounded healer is in Aquarius, bringing great change with the way you are and do things over time. Some will learn new skills where others will take a new path altogether. 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 connections with unusual people involved with health or spiritual work, or with those who live in an unusual or alternative manner. This point may mark a change to a more physical life for some. For others, the importance of the physical in daily life will decline as you move into accomplishments of a more mental, spiritual or creative nature. In the overall, changing what you do will bring change in 'who' you are. Conversely, a different sense of 'who' you are may bring change to what you do. This is powerful transit will see many Water Bearers living life differently over the next four years.

    2006 Aquarius Career Matters Career Matters Go to Top

    Jupiter, lord of fortune, is in Scorpio, urging you to expand career horizons or launch a new career. Promotion or opportunity for advancement will come for some. Others may need to invest money in work or career opportunities to get up and running. You will make fortunate connections with people of status or authority, ones that can assist you with your work situation. There may be an end with a career cycle for some, one that in itself sets something new in motion. For others, a change or end with someone else at work may advance your status. You may have dealings with people of power or 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 authority you do not like. Others may be caught up in a search for truth or deep meaning, one that takes you down the corridors of power. For all, career efforts or choices may be made in the context of partnership needs or the demands of home and family. Some may be in conflict with a partner over where to go next where others may have to take increased responsibility for someone close. You may make career choices because of abiding personal change, new interests, new skills and new contacts.

    On Nov 24th, Jupiter moves to Sagittarius and your solar eleventh house, opening new horizons. There will be new associates and friends, bringing fresh ideas to your life path. You may be more gregarious, renewing friendships or forming new associations. You may pursue a wide range of goals with humour and vigour.

    2006 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.

You may need to talk through an old matter with your partner. You may need to review your situation together and change the way you do things. This cycle ends on Jul 30th.

    Mercury turns retrograde in Scorpio on Oct 28th, in a conjunction with Jupiter. There may be changes or upsets with professional matters or dealings with authority. You may have difficulty communicating or getting a point across with a boss or someone in charge. There may be changes or interruptions to duties or obligations. Business or professional dealings may hit an impasse or a contretemps. Review where you're going, career-wise. Professional or legal people may feature in disputes or difficulties.
