Goals get grounded

Bold moves await you

Happy birthday, Aquarius!

Spend some time this month reviewing the past 12 months and what your take-outs from it have been, Aquarius. You are about to begin your fresh cycle in retrograde weather despite the fact your ruler Uranus is direct once more from the 18th. You have Mercury arriving in your sign from the 2nd – but it turns retrograde on the 14th and lands back in your 12th on the 26th. Venus remains retrograde in your 12th until the 29th. So, with major planetary weather in your house of the past, this is more a time of planning rather than initiating. Don’t despair however, from February onwards you will more than make up for lost time.

Goals and dreams for your future are likely to be grounded in reality more than simply castles in the air now. You are able to take the lessons you’ve learned from your past and apply them to future projects with ease. Throughout the month you will have a minimum of four planets in your 12th – even after the Sun and Mercury have entered your sign. And at its peak you will see six in here. At the time of the new Supermoon in here on the 2nd, you will have six – Sun, Moon, Mercury for just a few short hours, retrograde Venus, Juno and Pluto.

Retro Venus keeps love on hold for now and if a new boo is on your wishlist for ‘22 please do hold off your search until next month unless you want to swipe yourself onto the retro rocks. However, hearing from a blast from your past is possible thanks to retro Venus and Juno and Venus and the Sun meeting on the 7th and 9th. This Supermoon puts you in touch with your real feelings, desires and dreams. Perhaps there is something you are seeking which you have been reluctant to admit until now? It now emerges under this new Moon undeniable in its need to be answered in some way.

You have your dreams for a reason. Just as you have that ‘gut’ feeling or insight. You may not yet have the facts or proof. But that does not mean you are not right. So, take those feelings seriously this month and if they involve someone else, please stay on high alert. Your energy will be at a peak throughout the month and you won’t shy away from facing the truth head on. In fact, even if it is not what you might like or want, you’ll be grateful for it nonetheless. If you catch someone out in a lie – heaven help them now.

Vesta’s entry into your 12th on the 12th brings the astral tally back up to five in here and while the Sun’s arrival in your sign on the 12th takes it back down to four, it increases to five from the 24th with Mars’s arrival and then six again when Mercury re-enters on the 26th. You may be examining your relationships for continued resonance or even at their heart, honesty and integrity. Understand that long term ties may be tested now. Or even promises you have made in the past. You’ll be re-examining whether agreements between you and someone else still hold true as retro Venus and Juno meet on the 7th and the Sun and retro Venus on the 9th. Decision time could occur towards the end of the month when Juno and Pluto meet on the 24th.

Some of you may renew your commitment thanks to the movement of Ceres forward in your 4th from the 14th. This could even extend to a place or path as well as a person. A new cycle of living and security is about to open up for you. And if money has prevented you making a move, then opportunities and solutions are to hand this year. Saturn remaining in your sign should be telling you time is in fact on your side. This holds true for personal as well as professional ambitions. Take as much of it as you need and don’t rush.

This month’s full Moon in your 6th on the 17th performs two important functions. First it has you making that connection between your emotions and how you feel physically. And then you’re looking at how your emotional or psychic self may be better at decoding what people are saying or truly mean than your brain does. Learning to trust what you intuitively interpret forms part of the message of this full Moon. As does prioritising emotional wellbeing to support yourself mentally and physically. Time to go cold turkey on anyone or anything that affects your mood negatively.

Move on up

The 18th sees ruler Uranus move direct in your house of home and family while the North Node arrives in here the very next day. Please check your Aquarian factors now for any planets at a late anaretic degree – that is 29 degrees of your sign. Look back 19 years if you are old enough to moves, relocations, family matters, living arrangements, property dealings or investments, lifestyle choices and shifts. What began then may come full circle now. You may be more aware of your roots, your ancestry, your family karma. Stopping and asking ‘Just whose story am I living anyway?’ is common in this cycle.

If you want to break free of a family dynamic, this is your time. Others send their roots deeper or may make decisions around where they move to or how they choose to live. You may get your foot on the property ladder for instance. Or simply move out of home for the first time. Those of you with anything at 29 degrees will experience this first. If you are firmly planted where you are but have stopped growing – then expect a sudden shift or opportunity to put down roots somewhere new..

You’re the sign of ideas and original thinking. You embrace innovation and also turning things on their head and seeing them from a fresh perspective. That’s the gift of the Sun in your sign from the 20th. With Mercury retro and the Sun meeting on the 23rd, is it time to innovate some part of the ‘old’ you and replace it with a new statement? It doesn’t have to be a major one – even a small change will do. Or you can indulge yourself fully in a Fab Five makeover. Whatever way your budget or your inner desire for reinvention take you. Retrograde weather means reinvention and relaunch, Aquarius!

Venus heads direct from the 29th but please, as this is in your house of the past, wait until next month before initiating anything new around love or even money. You can however take aim at your next big financial or self-worth setting goal as Jupiter and Eros meet in your 2nd on the 30th. This is about aiming higher but also about setting a fresh benchmark when it comes to your ability to receive more too. Form a bond between you, your assets be they financial or your amazing talent stock, and your self-esteem. Set fresh values around these if needed. And above all, use your talent for innovation to see how you can make what you have at your disposal right now, work better for you. Jupiter is opening the gates to abundance for you in ‘22, imagine new ways to access them, Aquarius.

Mercury has been slowing down in your 1st since the 15th. It will turn retrograde from the 30th. The good news about this retrograde – yes, there is actually two parts to it, is that it will re-encounter Jupiter not just once but twice more. Things may swing back and forth for a while and the usual rescheduling and snafus can still happen. But this gives you a chance to fine tune that work-in-progress that is you, your dreams and goals, Aquarius. Be the poster child for the Now Age.

In a nutshell: Your birthday cycle puts you in a position of personal reinvention, Aquarius. And coincides with doors opening to satisfaction, security and self-worth. This is your year to make it happen!
