The Water Bearer

With Aquarius as your Sun Sign

Aquarius is a fixed air sign.  Aquarians are naturally independent and despite being friendly in nature, they are also very private and dislike having this privacy invaded. Their natural inclination is to help others but they do it in a cool, logical and unemotional way; you are a true humanitarian. With the Sun in Aquarius you are also very forward looking and rather unconventional. You have a rebellious streak and thoroughly enjoy being seen as unique or different, this approach to life spreads through your whole being, from the style and colour of the clothes that you wear to the music that you listen to. Quite naturally, you may shock or surprise those who are naturally more conservative than you are; here is the true reformer of the zodiac. You need to ensure that your rebellious nature and insistence on holding unconventional views does not become fanaticism and a refusal to change your opinions. You can be either original or eccentric, probably a mixture of both and often adept with technology and interested in science.

With Aquarius as your Ascendant

The fixed air sign of Aquarius rising at the time of your birth indicates a need to view yourself and your life from a detached perspective. You are enigmatic at times, often able to take a mental step backwards so to speak, to assess  exactly where you are and where you are going, from an unemotional viewpoint. This ability enables you to sidestep obstacles & prevent yourself from becoming embroiled in circumstances or bound by responsibilities that you would rather avoid. Your approach to life is generally unconventional and free-minded and friendly to others. You need your own space and the freedom to make your own choices and decisions, and you are also prepared to grant the same freedoms to others. You do have a need to be, and to be seen as, different from the norm, any attempts by others to bind you to a course of action or limit your freedom of self-expression will reveal the rebellious and uncompromising side of your nature, and  you will, one way or another break away from whatever it is that is placing limitations upon you. You are fiercely stubborn, and this pig-headedness can cause you problems; sometimes you do need to compromise.

You often suffer from a conflict of being independent and also having a need for love in your life. Your ideal partner will be someone who can take a back seat while you do your own thing. By the same token you need to realise that some sacrifice is needed for any relationship to flourish. Aquarians can either become very inward looking when they are not feeling well which can lead to hypochondria, then again their need to be different can lead them to be interested in the latest cure, or they may just be stubborn and ignore that their symptoms completely. Those with Aquarians ascendants need to exercise regularly as their sign rules the circulation which in turn affects the health of one’s heart.

Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus. The aspects and house position of this planet will be of particular importance in your chart.

January 2018 for Aquarius Ascendant

These predictions have been written to fit your Ascendant sign, and that is dependent not only on the day your were born but also the time that you were born as well as the place of your birth.

Ok, so Aquarius ascendants, what does 2018 hold in store for you? Well it's natural to starting with the outer planets and how they are affecting you in general and this is a summary of where they are moving before I move on to a more detailed chronological look at the year ahead.


Overview - The Sun and Venus are in Capricorn as we start this year and Mercury joins them in this sign on 11th January and there is a general focus on hidden and psychological issues, matters of sacrifice and solitude. Between 18th and 20th January both the Sun and Venus shift into Aquarius and as they do you will feel a renewed sense of optimism and self confidence. Mercury follows on behind moving into Aquarius on the last day of the month.

Mars is the driving force and the beat of the drum that we march to through our lives and as 2018 begins it is passing through your house of work and career alongside Jupiter. This will give you confidence and a very drive to do well at work or in public settings and to spread your influence as much as you can. You'll be ambitious now and wanting to make a big impact. Sure your confidence will be sky high, especially on and around the 8th when Mars and Jupiter combine, but beware of being too big headed and blasé about your abilities. You may cut off more than you can chew now, and let people in influential positions down because you promise more than you can deliver. You'll feel invincible, but remember that everyone has an Achilles heel.

On the 16th January Jupiter and Pluto form a sextile and though you'll be able to change your approach and take more control of and expand your career ambitions. The best way to do this will be through back door deals with influential people. Matters to transform your prospect at work and in all public position can be achieved by dealing with powerful people, however all of these gains may come at a price where you have to give up something to advance. There is a potential of blackmail here and you should be very careful not to get yourself into a situation where you are hostage to those who may want to manipulate or use you.

A day later on the 17th January there is a quincunx between Mars and Uranus, and through it you should expect some kind of sudden change in your work, an unforeseen request made on you, or and unexpected event in public. There could be a social connection to the change occurring or possibly it will be either linked to technology, messages or other communications.

Mars moves into Sagittarius on the 26th motivating you to fulfil long held ambitions, this is a house of looking to the future and making reality what has in the past been only hopes and dreams. This part of the chart is also connected to your friends and to groups of all kinds and you will do much better if you sacrifice some of your individual tendencies to work and cooperate with others. This placement will be exceptionally good in physical situations such as team sports and games. Now, this is likely to cause some conflicts if your aims are not the same as others around you and egos may clash in the process. The trick I think is to try and find some common ground between you, to ameliorate your individual ideas into one overriding strategy that is acceptable to all. In learning to work with other people you will have much more success as a result.

On the 31st January we have the first of five eclipses this year, a lunar eclipse in Leo. This eclipse lands in your house of relationships and partnerships, and so your connections to a partner, spouse or business associates may come under severe emotional pressure in the next six months. There may be changeable situations with people who oppose your personal views and with people you consult such as counsellors, solicitors and legal people too.
