In 2014, Aquarius are the zodiac’s workaholics. But all work and no play maketh a very dull Saturnian horoscope for the freedom loving water bearers! Don’t worry though. It might start out like that, but after July 16 Jupiter moves into your solar 7th house, which should boost things on the romantic front and seduce you out of the office. The problem has been Saturn squaring your sign has made you feel like…a right square. You start the year with Venus retrograde in the 12th house where you are questioning your relationship with God. No I don’t mean your spouse…really it’s all about GOD. Are you a scientist or a mystic? Do you believe in aliens? What about reincarnation? Past love lives will come back to haunt you. A spooky encounter with someone you just know you were married to in the middle-ages or just an ex who turns up begging for forgiveness. But since Venus is in the 12th you are having none of it. You would much rather lock yourself away with some crayons, for this is a great period for spiritual retreats or working on something artistic. You might want to burst out of your cocoon on March 7th though when Venus enters your solar 1st house, Lilith opposite it slinks into your marriage house and Saturn looses his bearings as he turns retrograde. You now find it harder than usual to say no to any saucy distractions. I’d have some fun while Saturn isn’t looking…
Friends With Benefits
The Cardinal Grand Cross on April 23 falls in your mind-over-matter houses. You may have a crisis in faith and be trying to get the right balance between science and mysticism. The cross might cause you to veer from one side to the other rapidly. Another conflict could be the need to escape the whole dilemma with a holiday since there is a lot of volatility locally. Mars retrograde from March 1 might put the spanner in any travel plans though. Instead it would be good to travel in your mind, you may start a course of study that involves history, or one that may really change the course of your personal history. Out of all signs, you really should avoid initiating court proceedings while Mars is retrograde and especially around April 23, since the 9th house rules the legal profession. If you receive a summons however, (according to Lyn Koiner.) the other side will be the loser (Libra decan 2 watch out), so that’s good to know! Mars is retrograde until May 19.
The April 15 Lunar Eclipse also falls in your solar 9th which highlights studying, publishing, travel or legal matters for the next 3 months. If you were to initiate anything related to these matters I would do it between May 19 and July 15 while the good effects of this eclipse are not warped by a frustrated Mars. The April 29 Solar Eclipse falls in your solar 4th house so its time to put your domestic matters in order, there could be an upgrade here. If have neglected your home life in favour of the office you might feel the need to invest some of that hard earned cash into making your home more comfortable.
Persephone’s Magic Wand falls in your solar 5th house on July 1. It’s time you had some of the fun you have been putting off during your workaholic phase. The “Fun” should be a lighthearted affair since you are still seriously engaged in your work. This time you can validly use your well worn “I need space” line.. With Eris on the South Node there is a need for you to be totally autonomous right now anyway. The romance may be with someone who has been a friend for a long time, which is right up your Aquarian street. It also fits with your unconventional streak since this kooky love will not be subject to the usual relationship hang-ups. You both already know what NOT to do, having sat through years of each other moaning about your ex’s. Friends with benefits then?
Release The Kite
With Jupiter now direct in your 7th, it’s trine with Uranus on September 25 brings the possibility of creative collaborations that are inspiring and inventive. The partnerships could feel very fraternal, and you could join a local group of like-minded souls that assist you in your souls evolution. With the 7th house influence there is also the possibility of a romantic connection flowering out of these groups also. The Grand Fire Trine adds more fuel to the importance of making new friends within common interest groups since it falls in the 3rd (locals), 7th (partners) and the 11th (hopes & wishes). Again this will bring fresh new influences into your life and clear away the cobwebs of a stagnant relationship. If you have been feeling stuck in the past and over-burdened with Saturn’s tests then this fire trine will lighten your load and inspire you to move on.
Both Uranus and Jupiter in the grand fire trine are about freedom, which by now you are gagging for! The October 8 Lunar Eclipse in your solar 3rd house falls right in the middle of this period. It will conjunct the Uranus part of the fire grand trine turning it into a highflying kite. This could be the day that Saturn’s chains are broken out of once and for all. Lunar eclipses are about release. As I said in the 2014 Forecast “ From October 11 – 14. The minor grand trine part of the Kite is activated by the Sun/North Node in Libra. Those with this plugging into their chart can expect creative gifts and inspiration, which will help align them with their true life-path.” This affects Aquarius decan 2 most of all, but all Aquarians should feel the uplifting effect. This puts you in good stead for the October 23 Solar Eclipse in your career house. As you are already flying high, your status could change for the better. You may gain a qualification now if you did use Mars retrograde for study. This eclipse is very artistic, so if work in the arts you could gain some recognition at this time. The latter part of the year is where you are rewarded for all your hard word and sensibility. It’s time to let your hair down as you begin to feel more like your old eccentric, liberated self once more.

Saturn square your decan all year. You are the hardest working of all the water bearers in 2014 and yes it will feel you are on some sort of endurance test. The section on Saturn in decan 2 equally applies to you. The only problem is that you don’t have Uranus to break up some of its density. You do however get concentrated Saturn energy in your solar 10th house for a whole 12 months, this means your career will undergo a series of restructuring and then reinforcing. Of course you will have to dismantle everything before you can do such important work and it is at these times you will probably feel very vulnerable and insecure. This will probably occur most strongly during the Saturn retrograde period between Feb 18 – Jul 7. At this time it is important to be aware of your boundaries and keep firm if you feel you are being put under pressure. If you have an important decision to make, its probably best to stall as long as you can until Saturn is direct. The most stressful days will be Apr 31 – May 1 where Mars is opposite Saturn Rx and then again when Saturn Rx squares Venus on Jul 1 – 3.

In the end they will appreciate an absolutely flawless final product. With Mars in the 9th it might mean that you need to invest a lot of time and money into research, travel and studying in connection with your work. But this is part of your Saturn test.

Here at least you will find your close friends and associates are only too pleased to support you in your grand plan. Relationships with others are easy and natural.

Mars square your decan Aug 29 – Sep 15 is when you will really need to call on some of those shoulders mentioned above. Saturn is now direct, but because things have been so slow earlier in the year you might be tempted to rush things through due to pressure from others. Colleagues or clients might be running out of patience with your medieval pacing. Unfortunately horse and cart speed, although ecologically sound, does not impress turbo-charged robots in the modern world. As I said before, it’s important to stand your ground, but doing so will inevitably cause some conflict. Black Moon Lilith opposite your decan Sep 1 – Dec 8 this may be the taboo distraction that I mentioned in the general forecast. If you are married then beware of the temptations of the forbidden fruit. You need to keep your guard up from Sep 1 –15 when Lilith square Mars forms a femme fatale T-square to your decan. Seductive sorcery is afoot! But if you are single maybe it’s you who is initiating saucy footsies under the table. Be careful an angry spouse doesn’t stamp on your toes!

This might speed things up work wise as you start to get more productive and inspired. The pressure is off as you come up with the goods. Your finances should improve now as some of the hard work is starting to pay off.
