Aquarius (20 January – 18 February)
Love planet Venus enters your fellow air sign of Gemini on the 5th where it remains throughout the month of July. This adds a playful quality to your stars and the more you focus on the people and activities you love, the happier your day-to-day experience.
Venus in Gemini highlights love affairs, children and pregnancy, creative projects, entertainment and luck, basically all the good things in life. So make a plan to have a good month and focus on play as much as work.
In fact, this could turn out to be quite a month for you if you focus on relationships and the fun side of life. Communication planet Mercury is in Leo and your relationship sector from the 6th to the 25th lighting up your 1-to-1’s.
Reach out to other people now whether you’re looking for love or playmates. Don’t go it alone and tap into the positive social vibe. Your sign of Aquarius is an air sign and when you’re in the flow and connecting with other people, you’re in your element.
This would be a good month to join a book club, a political party, a Mums and Toddlers group, whatever suits you depending on your current situation. The last part of the month in particular could see you meet up with some exciting people and a group venture has real potential.
Mercury makes a dynamic Grand Fire Trine with your co-rulers Saturn and Uranus from the 19th to the 24th so do something extra special over this weekend. There’s a theme of togetherness, working towards a common cause and it’s an excellent time to attend a workshop or conference. Either that or lead the way and be the one to speak in public, to teach or share your experiences.
This could also turn out to be a stunning month for love with so much attention on Leo, your relationship sector and Gemini, your romance sector. If you’re in a long-term relationship or married, spice up your love life and go somewhere different together. The 14th and 18th are good dates in this respect.
This is when both Mercury and Venus team up with lucky Jupiter in Libra and your travel sector. Widen your experiences and share an adventure. This is what will keep your love life strong.
There’s more excitement after the 20th because this is when passion planet Mars enters Leo followed two days later by the Sun on the 22nd. Then, on the 23rd there’s a stunning New Moon in Leo, a symbol of new beginnings.
This could prove to be red-hot for meeting someone new or a relationship provides you with some much-needed excitement. The Sun-Mars alliance on the 27th is fast-paced and passionate and someone new could sweep you off your feet.
Relationships are going to be big news next month too as the eclipses light up the sign of Leo and your relationship sector. There’s a second New Moon in Leo in August but it’s no ordinary New Moon as it’s a Solar Eclipse. Who you meet and the snap decisions you make in the last week of July could be the catalyst for major change in your life coming soon.
The other possibility is that you meet someone towards the end of month who lands in your life with a bang. This isn’t necessarily a romantic situation but someone who has a real impact on you. In fact, their views or actions could radically change your outlook on life. This person will announce themselves like a whirlwind.
Mars does rule anger however so watch out too for someone who’s ready for an argument. You might feel overpowered or dominated by a strong individual who wants to take charge. Sometimes when you have a plethora of planets in your opposite sign, you give away your energy or your power. Other people have the final say.
There could also be ructions earlier in the month perhaps at work or in your daily routine. Before the powerful Leo activity in the last third of July, Mars and the Sun are in Cancer and your work and health sector.
Both planets encounter tricky astrological aspects this month starting with Pluto. Mars opposes Pluto on the 2nd and on the 10th the Sun opposes Pluto, one day after the Full Moon on the 9th. Pluto is sometimes thought of as the wipe-out planet so don’t overdo exercise during this period and take care of yourself.
This might coincide with a job or contract coming to an end or perhaps you recognise you need to let go of a busy period in your life, to lower your stress levels. Both Mars and the Sun then clash with erratic Uranus on the 18th and 21st respectively. Uranus is your co-ruler and is currently in Aries and your communication sector.
These planetary factors indicate that there could be a big falling out at work this month or you might find yourself caught up in office politics. Try and stay out of a stressful situation and don’t get involved if you’d rather keep your job or you want a peaceful life.
Having said that, with your ruler Uranus pulled into the action, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to stand back, especially if you encounter injustice or unfairness in the workplace.
Finally, this month, figures planet Mercury enters Virgo and your joint finance sector on the 25th. So get to grips with money matters and pay attention to the details. This is especially important as next month, Mercury turns retrograde in Virgo, which is when misunderstandings can occur. Get on top of finances sooner rather than later.
