The proverbial J curve applies to Aquarius in 2017 inasmuch as learning is concerned. With Uranus in your third house of thinking and communication with Jupiter, the expensive benefic transiting your ninth house of tertiary education, philosophy and higher mind, you continue on your path of expanding your information base, skill sets and perception of self and life generally. Having passed the square aspect of transformative Pluto in the recent past, some of these leaps into wisdom have come at some, maybe even great cost at times but always accompanied by great challenges. Remember though, that the job of Pluto is to renovate and eliminate those things in your life which are of no longer any use.
Apart from your own personal self-empowerment, your relationships will also be focused in the coming 12 months. On February 11 the lunar eclipse in your seventh house of marriage followed by a little lunar eclipse on August 8 in your Sun sign, both these eclipses strongly focus your attention on your relationships, the level of commitment and trust with the same applying to those you are involved with emotionally. Being an Aquarian your independence is of vital importance and that may be central to the issues you will be dealing with in relationships.
Your sense of self-determination may feel cramped if the demands of the responsibilities you have in your relationship start to outweigh that freedom you so desire. This is not an impossible problem to solve but you have to use your Aquarian mind in clever ways if you are to communicate what you want and give the other person the sense that it’s a win-win and that they are also getting something out of the deal. That’s Uranus in the third house again, pointing the way.
Your secondary ruling planet of Saturn transiting through your 11th house of goal fulfilment, friendships and social connections, is good in one sense but it’s slow pace may delay the success you’ve been waiting for after working hard for some time. Position of Saturn will continue in this placement up until December 20. The full effect of its transit is yet to be felt and we will look later of how its impact upon you will be felt in concert with some of the other planets in your horoscope.
Try not to be too sentimental about things even if the advice is that you must balance your highly active in intellectual mind, because the above eclipse, especially the second one falling in your Sun sign on August 8 signifies health issues based upon worry, negative inner emotions and frustrations being the basis for any physical issues or lessening of your well-being. The sixth house, which the Moon rules also relates to enemies and with this important eclipse taking place in your Sun signed references to the fact that you yourself may be your own worst enemy both in terms of your health and in terms of the relationships we are discussing.
Fortunately, Jupiter is in your ninth house and this is considered one of the luckiest placements which can counteract many other challenging planetary aspects. Jupiter has also been involved in the same square to Pluto from the opposite ends of the heavens. This is called a T-square with Pluto being the pivot. You mustn’t fear the influence of this planet because whatever you lose now materially or in terms of your relationships, will be of great benefit to you in ways that you may not understand just now. There is an element of trust needed to move forward with self-confidence knowing that wherever you end up is going to be ultimately the best for you. The 12th house transit of Pluto and the fact that the Sun is in conjunction with it as the year commences, attests to your desire and willpower to understand the deeper side of your relationships, emotional patterns and past memories that may be at the heart of some of your one on one problems. Essentially, this year will be one of great learning on many levels.
Jupiter continues its journey in your ninth house of good fortune, past karma and expansion of cultural, mental and spiritual skills. It remains there until October 10 when it brings with it all this new information you’ve gathered into your professional sphere. At that time you will feel a distinct upswing in your confidence to boldly pursue the work that truly makes you happy. As Jupiter rules your 11th house of life fulfilment, its transit through the upper part of the horoscope, as I mentioned earlier, is an excellent counteraction to many of the other challenging aspects that will be discussed in your reading.
Mars is the principal planet of profession for Aquarius along with Pluto. Mars make some important transits firstly in January while it’s transiting your second house of income and it makes an important conjunction to Neptune on the first then a square aspect to Saturn on the 19th indicating some concerns or confusion over finances. Frustrations may occur at this time but that could be because you’re not completely in possession of all the facts that you need, to make clear decisions. Fortunately Mars’ transit into your third house on the 28th commences a better cycle where you can negotiate a deal in your favour and resolve a lot of your financial concerns.
Further important Mars transits punctuate the year and relate primarily to important cycles in your work. Sixth house transit between June 5 and July 20 and then again between December 9 and the end of the year, are periods when you should push a little harder to achieve your professional objectives. You will have the drive and persuasive power to influence people and to experience some success.
With a solar eclipse occurring on for be 27th in this same finance sector of your horoscope, expect some important developments after this. You’ll also notice that the karmic South node has been transiting this area so much of what will happen is dependent upon your previous actions. Hopefully you’ve acted with integrity and if that’s the case the results of this eclipse should be rather positive.
