    Aquariusthe Water-Bearer in 2004

    2004 Aquarius Spiritual Quest Mystic Neptune Calls the Tune

    It's a mixed and yet potent year for the Water Bearer, with many different influences at work in the cosmic map. Mystic Neptune still calls the tune as he continues on his slow yet insistently powerful journey in your sign. Neptune urges you to the creative, the spiritual and to influences that lie beyond the pale of ordinary daily life. With a shake of his watery trident, the god of the sea brings new romance, new ideals and new dreams, yet he can pull the plug on old passions as interest or enthusiasm for the familiar wanes and fades. Thus, as Neptune touches your lives, there may first be a disillusioning with regard to the old before it comes time to follow the new light. Some of you will be called to a new path or a new way of life. Water Bearers born in the first week of February will be most strongly affected this year. Make sure you've dealt with the old and laid your ghosts to rest before you move onto the new, otherwise it may be hard to set the clear boundaries you need to help you leave the past behind.

    Apart from mystic Neptune, there are many other changes on the cards for you. While revolutionary Uranus brings change to the way you make and spend money, Saturn, the measurer of effort continues his testing journey through your solar sixth house of work and health. This will bring an increase in responsibility or workload for some while for others there will be a change in the pattern of daily tasks, perhaps brought about by an end, a separation or a new cycle in the family. Many of you will find you have to work harder or be more focused in the next few years. Some of you may begin a new line of business or work while for others it will be an end. Saturn's move also brings a focus on health. Some may find they will have to care for themselves in a different way. This may be because the past has taken a toll or it may be that changes in health conditions necessitate new daily routines. Some of you will find that you are operating in a more solitary capacity than usual while others may enter into a family business of some kind.

    Jupiter, lord of fortune begins the year in Virgo and your solar eighth house, taking you into a deep examination of your motivation and your finances. This continues the 'go for it' period that began on August 27th in 2003. Money or investment may be a driving concern for some. You may find yourselves in joint endeavours in order to make great gains. Ensure you don't get in too deep. Some might be drawn down the path of study, either metaphysical or behavioural. Others might find themselves in the worlds of power or high finance or simply among powerful but challenging people.

    Use insight to study the inner workings of what you see around you. Others might just find that no amount of what they are seeking is enough. Learn where your limits lie. Push the envelope but don't blow the package. After beginning the journey in Virgo, Jupiter ends it in Libra and your solar ninth house encouraging you towards study, overseas travel and a broader more philosophical view. This change occurs on September 25th and could see some of you Water Bearers crossing new horizons, both literal and metaphorical.

    2004 Aquarius Love and Money Love and Money  Go to Top

    Venus the goddess begins the year in your sign, conjoined with mystic Neptune. Affairs of the heart will play a strong part in the year ahead for many. You may be seeking new romance or reviving the romantic flair and flavour with your nearest and dearest. Self-beautification and changes of image may be an important theme for some. If you look different, you can feel different. Dealings with interesting or unusual women may play a part in the year for some while creative or spiritual activities and people could play a role for others.

    For the single Water Bearer, there will be connections with new and different people. This may lead some of you down the romantic path where others will find themselves in a new sector of the community, with new interests and concerns as a consequence. For those in a relationship, it's time to add zest or interest to your life together. New interests and new social relationships could lift you up and leave you sparkling once again. If you get caught in the same old patterns though, there could be a loss of interest in what you have and a search for something new. In such a process of change, it may be hard to know what you want. Be discerning. Be guided by the highest ideals of conduct. A second or late marriage may take place for some Water Bearers after September 25th.

    Change is afoot in the financial sector for the Water-Bearers this year as Uranus, the revolutionary one and modern ruler of your sign establishes himself in Pisces and your solar second house of personal finances and resources at the end of 2003. He will journey there for seven years. There will be radical shifts with regard to money over this time. Some of you will come into changed fortunes, suddenly or unexpectedly. Some will reach new heights while others will level off. Some will change the way you spend money while others will make change to the way you earn it. Some of you may begin to diversify your working efforts while others may try to consolidate.

    Uranus brings about reversals of trend and radical shifts. For those who have had little interest in finance up to now, there may be a sudden surge of energy in this department. Thus, some will be inclined to take risks or gamble with money for the first time while the speculators may decide to go down a more conservative road. Some will move away from a material view, taking an interest in creative or spiritual matters. Some may give to charitable or humanitarian work. Some will begin to accumulate material possessions while others will decide to shed them or slim down their assets. Whatever the change, the important thing is to spend the next years trying to see your possessions and financial life from a different perspective. With Venus and Neptune conjoined in your sign, there could be a temptation to spend freely or an inclination to risky or uncertain ventures. Make sure you know what it is you want and what you're chasing before you put too many dollars at risk. In the end though, risks will need to be taken. Embrace the new!

    2004 Aquarius Home and Family Home and Family  Go to Top

    With the Lunar North Node in Scorpio and your solar fourth house, family issues and dealings will play a strong part in the year ahead. You will have to decide what it is you really want from emotional and domestic life. For some, there may be a need to break from the controls that have been put in place by family life or family background. You may need to find a new kind of emotional life, one that gives you freedom. Others may find that obligations to family members or children take precedence over other matters and need close attention. There be a major domestic change or a new start for some. For others, it may be that interest and enthusiasm for an old situation will be renewed.

    2004 Leo Work and health Work and Health  Go to Top

    Saturn, the measurer of effort, is now established in your solar sixth house of work and health. Daily routines and general healthcare will need more attention than you've been inclined to give in the past. Some of you may have to deal with changed health conditions. If this is the case, be specific, practical and immediate in your efforts. Put new regimes of healthcare or self-nurture in place, as and when necessary. Some will have an increased workload or a new line of work altogether. This may see you operating in a more solitary capacity than usual or with family members. It will be important to balance the demands of your work regime with changed requirements in the healthcare department. Don't focus on work at the expense of health. For some, work routines will have to be well structured. For others, there will be a higher organizational content in what you do. Dealings with older people or those in authority may now be part and parcel of your daily routine.

    Water Bearers born in the first week of February need to watch energy levels. For you, mystic Neptune conjoins with your Sun in the course of the year. Respond to fatigue or disinterest by changing patterns or approach. Creative or spiritual expression may be the enhancement you are looking for. Don't let indulgence become addiction. Be measured in the use of any medication.

    2004 Aquarius Career Matters Career Matters  Go to Top

    There may be a 'push and pull' process with regard to career matters. Some may want to step away from something in this area to concentrate on new things while others may want to break the restrictions of home or family life and come back to something you used to do, career wise. Some of you may have contact with people who represent the past and those who represent a new future, and thus you will have to make a break and a decision in accordance with your heart. The pull between a sense of responsibility to others and your own emotional needs is a strong one this year and many of you will have to make a decision that represents both a beginning and an end. Only you can say where your destiny lies. Some of you will have to cross a new horizon to find what you're looking for. After September 25th, new ideas and beliefs call. The support or plain old good luck you need to follow a new path will come.

    2004 Aquarius Mercury the Messenger Mercury the Messenger  Go to Top

    Mercury moves into retrograde (reverse) motion three times a year for about three weeks each time. This phase heralds a time of confusion and misunderstandings that can affect arrangements, travel, transport, appliances, machinery and communications. The breakdowns that occur are a function of neglect, inattention, simple misunderstandings or component failure. They will often bring to the fore the very contingency we should have planned for and didn't. When the retrograde phase occurs, watch out for such possibilities as well as putting off major decision-making or the signing of crucial documents and agreements. We tend to miss things while Mercury is in reverse motion and then have to come back and do them again. A process of review in the retrograde phase can efficiently show where problems might lie and help us with damage control or the mending of things. Double check arrangements at these times! What you think you've said and what others have understood will often prove to be two different things.

    Mercury is retrograde in Sagittarius and your solar eleventh house as the year begins. There may be confusion with friends and poor communication or misunderstanding could be at the root of problems. You may need to discuss something with a friend to clear the air or to seek advice. Sometimes a detached perspective can be a great problem solver. You may need to re-evaluate your hopes and wishes as you strike delays or an obstacle to your plans. This cycle ends on January 7th.

    The messenger's second reverse motion cycle begins on April 7th in Aries and your solar third house. Be careful with travel and transport. You may have to change schedules or appointments at a moment's notice. Delays could trouble your arrangements. Office equipment or machinery may need servicing or fail at the crucial moment. There may be confusion with communications so speak plainly and listen well. There may be difficulty or confusion with siblings. Education or teaching programs could be disrupted or changed. This cycle ends on May 1st.

    The busy little messenger turns retrograde in Virgo and your solar eighth house on August 11th. You may need to review your financial position with regard to all matters of joint finance, investment or credit. Make sure you don't overdo it with the overdraft or credit card coming into this time, otherwise it may be harder than you think to pay the bill. You may need to discuss your financial situation with an expert. Get plain and practical advice and take it. There may be problems with a joint account or arrangement that will need sorting out. Discuss things plainly. Listen to what's being said. This cycle ends on September 3rd.

    Mercury's last retrograde cycle comes on December 1st in Sagittarius and your solar eleventh house. Confusion, poor communication or misunderstandings could trouble relationships with friends. Take the time and make the effort to sort things out. You may need to discuss a matter of importance or concern with a friend. This may be to clear the air or to seek good advice. A friend may offer a detached perspective on a problem or a concern. This could be of value. You may need to re-evaluate your hopes and wishes as you strike delays or obstacles with your plans.

    2004 Aquarius Lady Moon Lady Moon  Go to Top

    Your New Moon comes on January 21st, bringing irritation with revolutionary Uranus. There could be testing experiences for you that have financial management at the root. You may need to make a new start or go in a different direction. First, you'll need to see whatever the problem is in a new and different way. Finish up the old before you begin with the new. Don't let them overlap.

    Your Full Moon comes on July 31st, clashing with the Lunar Nodes but with a gentle touch from mystic Neptune. There may be a break or separation for you, something that erupts to the surface. You may have been at odds with someone, a stubborn or strong-willed person, and it may have come time to part company or at least air your differences. There are realizations in the air, but you may not like their implications. There is urgency or impatience here, but sort things out with gentleness and compassion.

    2004 Aquarius Eclipses Eclipses  Go to Top

    Eclipses of both the Sun and the Moon often indicate the end of a cycle or a significant change in the direction or pattern of the affairs governed by the house in which the eclipse falls. Eclipses of the Sun may affect work, direction and relations with people in authority. Eclipses of the Moon may affect matters of home, family and emotions as well as relations with women and children. Both may affect your health.

    April 19th brings a Solar Eclipse at the New Moon in Aries and your solar third house. Arrangements may have to be changed because of an unexpected development. Travel plans may be affected. Some may experience difficulty or loss with a sibling. Others may find communications problematic. There may be a blockage in getting the information you need. There may be difficulty with a vehicle.

    A Lunar Eclipse comes with the Full Moon in Scorpio and your solar tenth house on May 4th. This may bring the end of a cycle with regard to career or dealings with authority. For some of you there may be a change in your relationship with a parent. There may be a shift or an end to your responsibilities with regard to a position of control or authority.

    October 14th brings a Solar Eclipse at the New Moon in Libra and your solar ninth house. There could be a break or a disconnection with contacts overseas. Overseas travel plans may have to be changed. There may be a problem in dealing with someone of a foreign background, especially a woman. There may be difficulties with in-laws. You may need to review your position with a course of study. There may be a legal matter that comes unexpectedly or proves to be more complex than you thought.

    A Lunar Eclipse comes with the Full Moon in Taurus and your solar fourth house on October 28th. There may be changes with your domestic or emotional situation. A cycle may come to an end as someone leaves or makes a new start elsewhere. You may go through an emotional shift about what you want or how you feel. There may be problems with regard to household appliances or fixtures. Something may be past the 'use by' date.

    Venus the goddess turns retrograde in Gemini and your solar fifth house on May 1st. Some of you may strike a difficult patch in dealing with a child while others will find that romantic involvements hit a glitch or a period of reassessment. Some will find themselves in contact with an old flame, others may find themselves uncertain about what they want and need to withdraw into an inner or more private cycle of activity. When the goddess moves backwards, it becomes important to pull back from the outer activity in order to find a new sense of the inner self. People you've been involved with creatively in the past may re-enter your life. An old creative project may take on new life. This could be a tricky period with regard to money. For some there may be an outstanding matter that is finally resolved. For others, this could be a time to step back from investment or speculation and re-evaluate your position. This period comes to an end on June 30th.
