Aquarius, this is shaping up be an important year for you, career-wise and romantically. You start your solar year with Saturn, your ruler in the area of your chart to do with career, reputation, social status and life direction. Traditionally, Saturn feel comfortable here but in the sign of Scorpio (sidereal!), you’ll have to face some home truths, make some very profound changes and possible reorganise your life from the bottom up and top down. Nevertheless, this is a socially visible, dignified, lawful, orderly and conventional area of your chart and for the next twelve months – and longer - you strongly identify with leadership roles and being your own boss. Towards the end of this transit and after the upcoming retrograde period, you’ll certainly command respect in your career and with a clearer idea of where you want to go next professionally. You’ll ask yourself ‘What is my true calling’, ‘What am I here to do’? Once you’ve figured that out, you’ll have no problem leading the masses.
Some you may also want to look at relocating for work - and not just a few miles down the road! We’re talking international setting and working with people from all over the world, perhaps for a charity organisation, in fundraising or anything connected to spirituality, science, inventions & innovations and new discoveries – perhaps. In any case, the experiences and insights you make on your travels will help you stand out from the crowd, professionally and potentially will help you get a better (or renewed, I should say) idea of what’s next for you. For some Aquarians, this process is one that begins with you dissecting and bulldozing down what was and what has been before – and only to start rebuilding from scratch. Sounds dramatic but it may just involve a career change that you knew has been coming for a long time. Aquarians are fixed by nature and don’t like change that’s imposed on them by others but now, it seems you almost don’t have that much choice in the matter as authority figures at work or circumstances generally almost force the change upon you.
Saturn then goes retrograde from 15th March until 1st August 2015. This is a time to file on your ‘strategy’, your plan and generally how your life should be ‘structured’. This is a more internally focused period and allows you to define your boundaries and rethink or reconfirm commitments and responsibilities.
But it’s certainly not all about career and work this year. In mid-July Jupiter enters your relationship zone and Rahu / the North node follows a few months later at the beginning of 2016. Rahu is where our biggest desires lie and Jupiter where we see the most growth and possibility. So go figure…! It’s a time of plenty when it comes to relationships and some may suddenly enter a partnership, others will leave one – and pretty soon afterwards start a new one. Whatever partnership is coming your way, it seems to be materially beneficial and it’s one that opens up your world to a whole new circle of friends. The same goes for a business partnership…
Then, the eclipses are of course also having an impact on your chart. You’ve already seen the first round of those in October 2014 across the area in our chart to do with finances, family, values, possessions and your income – all connected to relationships, agreements (and disagreements!), contracts and deals. Again, this area is under the spotlight with the solar eclipses on 20th March and 13th September 2015 and again with the lunar eclipses on 4th April and 28th September 2015. By the time the September eclipses come around, you’ll have Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion in your opposite sign, meaning you can expect some (financial) support either from family or a new partner. Sounds perfect, right? Have a great year, Aquarius!
