Aquarius (21 January – 18 February)
It’s all going on at the peak of your horoscope this month as planetary activity takes place in Scorpio and your career and vocation sector. The Sun is here until the 22nd and the other important planetary feature is Mercury retrograde in Scorpio until the 20th.
This can play out in different ways. For example, you might have to play a waiting game when it comes to your work or career. You could have heard about a job but you don’t know whether you’ve been successful. You might be especially busy. Or, the opposite and you’re twiddling your thumbs.
Certainly, when Mercury’s in this sector of your horoscope, it’s a good idea to analyse your motives around work and dig in deep. Be analytical, do your research and fact-find. You could become obsessive about what you’re currently involved in as Mercury takes you in deep.
There’s a theme of going back to the past too, whether you review your situation or chase up old contacts. This can be a fruitful way of using Mercury’s retrograde phase. It’s not necessarily about starting something new. Instead, it’s about going over old ground, reworking a project or reconnecting with previous ideas.
What is important is not to take any decisive action until Mercury turns direct on the 20th. That’s not to say you can’t explore your options, And, there is one period in the month which could prove to be a revelation.
Full Moon Intuition
This is around the Full Moon on the 12th which cuts across the Scorpio/Taurus axis of the zodiac highlighting your foundations. Full Moons bring illumination as the light of the Moon is at its brightest. Plus, the day before, on the 11th, there’s a Sun/Mercury conjunction in Scorpio.
This is a similar theme because the Sun represents light and clarity. Mercury’s currently in the dark but a meeting or interview could point you in the right direction. Ask for an audience with the person represented by the Sun, a ruler, someone in a position of influence. Trust your intuition during this phase and ask for guidance.
Fast forward to the 19th and another influence kicks in. This is when action planet, Mars, enters Scorpio where it remains until early January 2020. Therefore, the emphasis on your career and vocation, your future path in life remains hot. Keep the fires stoked and don’t take your eye off what’s happening.
As this coincides with Mercury’s change of direction on the 20th, events during this week could propel you forward and fast. Listen out for new information that comes to light or perhaps the news you were waiting for.
This ambitious phase may well demand flexibility on your part. On the 24th, Mars clashes with your co-ruler, Uranus, currently in Taurus and your home and family sector. It’s here where change is likely. This could be an unsettled phase for you. Or perhaps, you have to move to pursue your work or career. Don’t be too rigid or stubborn but keep your options open. When in doubt put your professional life first.
Saturn & Neptune
Money is under the cosmic spotlight this month too. It’s here where you’re wise to bring more security in to your life. This is an important feature of the Saturn-Neptune sextile aspect on the 9th. Saturn is your traditional ruling planet and these two slower-moving planets have connected three times in 2019.
They first came together on January 31st, then on June 23rd and this is their third and final meeting. Saturn wants and needs stability in life whereas Neptune can be intangible and elusive. Together, they can help you turn dreams in to reality. Slow things down during their final connection and don’t allow money to slip through your fingers.
There’s a karmic feel to this connection that links to your past. This is similar to the Mercury retrograde theme. Plus, the Sun in Scorpio is strong during the weekend of the 8th to the 10th. This would be a good weekend to focus on your future goals and your money mind set. Take things slowly and don’t feel that you have to rush into something new.
Mars & Venus
There are two other factors to consider. Firstly, action planet, Mars, is in Libra and your travel and study sector up until the 19th. Mars clashes with Pluto on the 5th and this could mean a change to your plans. A course or trip away might have to be cancelled or postponed.
If this is true for you, take a step back and reconsider your options. Mars is in much better shape on the 12th when it teams up with the planet of foreign connections, Jupiter in Sagittarius. Look out for the friend who can help you fulfil your lust for adventure.
Friends and lovers are part of the cosmic picture too as Venus, the planet of love, is in Sagittarius from the 1st to the 26th. Balance your working life with a lively social scene and you won’t go far wrong.
Plus, on the 24th, Venus and Jupiter, the two best planets, come together in Sagittarius. This would be gorgeous for a celebration or a friend’s birthday. Celebrate good news for someone in your social circle. And, you can’t rule out the fact that love and friendship are flourishing during this phase.
In addition, there’s a New Moon in Sagittarius and your friendship and group sector on the 26th. Don’t go it alone towards the end of November. Get your allies on your side and leap in to a new organisation that helps you feel engaged with the world and social concerns.
