Janruary 20th - February 18th

January 2018

The big planetary movement this new year is the change of Saturn into Capricorn. Following three years in Sagittarius where it inflicted upon some Aquarius people extremes in lifestyle choices or unwanted restrictions and changes in that area. For most Aquarians the Saturn’s entrance into Capricorn will signal some kind of control which needs to be put into place now, in a low key or even behind the scenes manner, to prevent occurrences of the extremes just mentioned from derailing plans. The fact that Saturn is in Capricorn and Jupiter is now in Scorpio, brings an urgent flavour or a slightly intense one to both career and off the record plans. Both these planets in signs are given to obsessive searching for the best and the most powerful. So the accent is on achieving in subtle and sure ways the objectives that may include the input of other people.

February and half of March sees Mars transiting Sagittarius and implementing the data and information so contradictory and delayed in November and December. The first Mercury retrograde motion of the year in Aries in March and April will tend to block the speed at which you want to move some things along. But it will also make sure that what is produced then is sensible and with a rock solid foundation from which innovation and advancement into the future can be reached. Mercury in Capricorn in January conjuncts Saturn itself, but the hardline facts or objections from that time can be shifted as April moves into May – all providing promises are not broken or terms and conditions breached. The first four months of this year is a period of solid and demanding preparation for the more ambitious, but definitely not a period when the timid should go forward in the face of opposition or their own greater fears. Saturn is operative in a challenging way for all Aquarians at various times of 2018. but Mars entering Capricorn in April and May and backing up Mercury’s work, ensures that a lot of what is developed or set in stone cannot be misunderstood.


The other big movement this year is Uranus into Taurus, after a seven year transit through Aries. This occurs in mid May, but the first few days of May sees Uranus joined by Mercury and holds the key to what cannot be left unfinished or what has to be confronted before the changes needed in private and domestic life can be trusted to go smoothly. Any blips over unfinished business or doubts over the solidity of plans will arise in October when Uranus retrogrades back into Aries to finish things off from the last few years, but is failing to get the best grip until November and causing delays until March 19. It may be that matters commercial or fundamental to daily living are not geared up for the changes you have envisaged and need greater amendment. Often we can’t see the flaws until we roll out the carpet, so to speak. But the spring of this year certainly offers opportunity to check and test and overview important matters and arrangements with an eye to missing links and miscalculations, saving a lot of wasted time at the end of the year and the beginning of the next.
