Aquarius 20 Jan - 18 Feb
With the Sun in Aries until 21 April, your
likely to be out and about a lot and short
trips and little escapes are well-starred. For
those of you looking for love, you may find
romance blossoms near to home. You may even
bump into Cupid on a short journey or even sitting
on your doorstep. The full Moon in Libra around 11 April
falls near Jupiter, the great benefic, and so you should be open to exploiting and exploring options concerning education, philosophy or foreign people and places around this time. With Saturn, your traditional planetary ruler, in a stressful aspect with Venus, ruler of Taurus, you may need to be patient concerning certain elements of your private or emotional life.
There is a strong emphasis on Taurus, the domestic zone of your solar chart this month. Mercury and Mars will be in Taurus until 21 April, when Mercury retrogrades back into Aries and Mars enters Gemini. It is also around the 21 April that the Sun begins its yearly, month long transit through Taurus. The Sun’s influence looks favourable, Mercury and Mars may bring complications. With Mercury retrograde from 10 April - 04 May communication problems and misunderstandings are more likely, especially concerning your domestic affairs, kith and kin, hearth and home.
With impatient, impulsive Mars also in the vicinity, there could be a certain amount of tension, irritation or misplaced resentment. Since misunderstandings are more likely to be the source of problems that surface now, as is usually the case when Mercury is retrograde, it is important to keep lines of communication open, to resist the temptation to read between the lines or act on incomplete or unreliable information and try to stay neutral when dealing with relatives and loved ones with different agendas, expectations and perspectives.
The movement of the Sun into Taurus from 21 April should bring an improvement on the domestic front but you may have to wait until Mercury moves forward again from 04 May before things settle down.
