Your ruler Saturn moves into Capricorn for your Aquarius horoscope 2018. The temptation during this period is to get very broody and depressed if you feel like a failure, but it is important that you realise there is a very bright light ay the end of this 12th house tunnel! Cocooning is the best use of this time and it is quite an active sense of preparation for the massively wonderful rebirth to come. So clear the decks. Say goodbye to draining connections and time-consuming projects that are not bearing fruit. Weed out everything that you do not feel enlivened and excited by. You can feel the impulse welling up inside you, but resist pushing until you really feel you have to. You are literally giving birth to yourself, so you don’t want to bust a gut against locked doors.
Aquarius 2018 Horoscope ~ January to March
Mars enters your important status house from Jan 1 to 26. You are primed for taking on extra responsibility in your career right now. You don’t mind the extra load as long as you have total say in where and how you distribute it. Your co-workers might take a while to get used to taking instruction from you, so try not to throw your weight around. One thing is for sure, is that you will work extremely hard on the projects that you are given and people will not be able to fault you for that. Keep your head down and try not to get embroiled in office politics, because it is not worth undoing all the good work just because somebody wound you up out of jealousy. The self-employed won’t need to worry about such nonsense, but you might feel like bickering to yourself. Be kind!

With the Jan 31 Lunar Eclipse a ‘new you’ starting to blossom. As your image changes so do the people you attract and by the same token, this means there are people that you might find you are starting to repel also! Of course if you are in a marriage than this could be something that does cause a split if your partner feels threatened by your new identity. Sometimes this can even happen by a person losing or gaining a lot of body weight too or sadly even by just ageing. On a positive note, you may have started going to the gym for vanity reasons but the impact on one’s health can’t be denied. The Feb 15 Solar Eclipse falls in your own sign! So this means it will be life-changing if you happen not to be too happy with the way things have turned out for you so far. If, on the other hand, you are quite pleased with your life thank you very much, do you need to worry that it will all fall apart at this eclipse? I would say not! Unless you really do have a dead body buried under the patio or are totally living a lie.. This is a way of finding out who your true friends are, being true to your identity and not having to wear a mask.
Aquarius 2018 Horoscope ~ April to June
Saturn continues its journey in your mystic zone. Keep quiet and tranquil, spend time with yourself in nature so you can tune into your own cycles. This will help you know the right moment to start pushing. Deep, deep breaths, yes you will be able to do it!! But until this very important debut, enjoy the gestation period to its fullest. Acting premature will just lead you down those famous 12th house paths of self-undoing. Earthing yourself will strengthen your intuition while you plug your feet into the earth. The Hermit card in the tarot is your Saturn guide. So retreat into your cave and do some cave-painting by torchlight. Watch the flames flicker and see what you can read from the shadows.
Jupiter in your status and life calling zone for most of 2018. Prizes and awards of excellence are possible, as is graduating from college. Super confidence in your abilities will be reflected in a surge of demand for your services. The only mildly negative possibility of this transit is finding it difficult to take orders from your superiors because you feel so damn superior! Still, you will probably get the bosses to see from your elevated perspective at some point, so just be patient and they will soon catch up. Foresight is one of your gifts right now and is very useful in market trends, as is speculation. Any profit gained from this will not go unnoticed. So even if your tips are not taken, they will remember you were right! Resist the urge to say ‘told you so’ though.
Ceres spends an extra long period in your marriage house this year when it goes retrograde in Leo from the beginning of the year until Jun 27. Dark Triad relationships can certainly become a problem when Ceres transits through your marriage zone. Triangles form not only in romantic relationships, but also in business and family dynamics. The most obvious can be becoming the scapegoat for narcissistic parents when your sibling is the golden child. The other scenario is a mother or father-in-law coming between you and your spouse. In this case, there is often some unconscious sexual rivalry with incestuous overtones going on, which can become quite creepy.
Black Moon Lilith sends you fleeing into your secluded 12th house to recuperate from the above! If you do not give yourself enough TLC then illness could be the result. Being ill forces you to slow down, but if you have really been abusing yourself you could be hospitalized! Overdoing the forbidden fruit might call for you to put yourself in rehab or go through a period of detoxification. Another form of detox is to withdraw from sexual relationships or become celibate, that way you become virginal for 9 months and clear yourself from past lovers ‘stuff ‘. In essence, you are giving birth to the new you. One that is honest, frank and does not compromise your ethics in order to be accepted.
Aquarius 2018 Horoscope ~ July to September
The Jul 13 Solar Eclipse will certainly test your immunity. However, if you get through this period without so much as a sniffle, then well done! You are obviously leading a balanced life and looking after your precious human body both mentally and physically. This Solar Eclipse attempts to jolt an imbalanced soul back into a harmonious life rhythm. You might have to get worse before you get better, so be patient. This is followed by the renewal of the Jul 27 Lunar Eclipse in your own sign, (the second eclipse this year) which forces you to look at your own needs. This may be done through relationships that suddenly start ‘acting-out.’ You may find it increasingly hard to compromise with partners, romantic or otherwise. At this time the weighing scales of justice are measuring every little give-and-take. If there has been an ongoing imbalance, then the scales will abruptly clank down with a deafening thud with this lunar eclipse. It could be a wonderful payback time or make-or-break in relationships. If you suddenly decide to put yourself first and have not done previously, it can be a shock to those around you. A selfish partner may up and leave, but you will feel unexpected relief. Good riddance!
More decisive action with Mars Retrograde in your own sign from Jun 27 to Aug 12. During this period you will get the opportunity to completely rebuild your persona from the bottom up. Events that happen will force you to completely reconstruct your personality or even your physical body. It will become apparent that you cannot simply patch over the cracks and that some real deep down cleansing is needed. Mars is the destroyer, but also the healing scalpel of the surgeon that removes any toxic relationships or blockages in your body that are weighing you down or preventing flow. At this time you will find that such conflict builds up in your relationships that you lose patience with keeping up a false face to please people.
The planets are really shaking up your relationships! The Aug 11 Solar Eclipse falls in your marriage house. It really could be that this classic position actually does bring a marriage! (Or at least a marriage of sorts.) You could also form a partnership that could be life-changing in terms of a business too. Legal contracts are highlighted, so important deals can be signed during this time also. The Solar eclipse has the effect of reinforcing satisfying and balanced relationships, but also of splitting apart weak or draining connections. You might have quite a few passionate arguments with partners of all sorts during this eclipse period, but they will only serve to bring you closer.
Black Moon Lilith enters your sign to bring more passion from Aug 11 until the end of the year. Lilith is so sexual in this zone, that there will be a great activation of the root chakra and your most primal desires. You will then need to learn to resist temptation, and reign in this wild-wolf. This can be quite a challenge when there is Tinder and such things… Sex-texting is at least safe-sex I suppose. If you have been feeling like your libido has been flagging then this period is a great one for experimenting and being a lot more daring in the bedroom.
Mars Retrograde’s back into your house of self-undoing on Aug 13 and then turns on Aug 28. During this time you will put yourself into ‘rehab’ and be quite hermit- like. Meditation, yoga, martial arts are good, anything that brings a mind/body connection and space for restoration and healing. Think of it as an extended time in the watery womb, when Mars goes direct again, you should start to feel the contractions of the red planet as it becomes impatient for rebirth. It won’t be long until Mars resurrects itself in your own sign! On Sep 11 the bubbling liquid will transform into the confident, strident flames of the Phoenix. Hurrah!
Aquarius 2018 Horoscope ~ October to December
Mars remains in your sign until Nov 16. Your personality is more domineering than usual, but you don’t really want to take any power off anyone else. Instead, you just want to be self-sufficient and be allowed to get on with your own thing. You could get quite aggressive if your plans are interfered with too much, so it’s probably best to work alone as much as you can during this time. You will feel very sure of yourself though and extra secure in your position. You should have a very strong stamina at this time and put a lot of energy into back-breaking work.
Venus retrograde on Oct 6 falls in your house of career and status could have you attracted to rich, authority figures or someone much older than you. What you are actually seeking is a guide to help you get ahead, so you could attract a business mentor at this time. It may be the case that this person owes you karmically. Negatively you might go for someone just because they have great social standing and good connections, or purely for mercenary reasons. If this is the case, then you will be exposed as a gold digger when Venus goes direct, so just make sure you question your true motives! If you are usually a business head, then you might find yourself temporarily involved in a rebrand of your company, redesigning logos or redecorating the office.
On occasion Venus retrograde, although fortunate here, makes one a little too complacent. Success can happen, but then you don’t follow through, or you are getting a lot of attention, but nothing comes of it. Venus blessings could go down the drain if you show a lack of appreciation of others and/or you are exhibiting diva behaviour. Until Oct 26 Venus is in her more harmonious (Hesperus) phase which makes diplomacy with seniors or clients pleasant and easy-going. You should also receive a lot of praise. During the second half from Nov 1 to 16 Lucifer Venus becomes more daring, so you might feel more adventurous and go off the beaten track. This may bring about an unexpected and illuminating, peak experience.
Ceres joins Venus in your career house from Nov 11 to Dec 28. The crone/wizard energy is very strong at this time and you may be recognized as a wise elder in your community and/or amongst your peers. You might receive an award celebrating talents in the divining arts such as Tarot, astrology and other forms of prediction. Professions associated with priestess energy, like healing, herbalism, transmission of ancient wisdom and shamanism, could pull you away from your regular job. You are called to your true vocation, and choose soul happiness over financial security.
Jupiter changes sign and enters its own sign Sagittarius on Nov 8. Friendships are graced with the benefic influence of Jupiter this year, so you should feel supported by your closest friends as well as the new ones you make. With all this camaraderie you won’t feel too needy, or greedy for attention elsewhere in your life. You might not even care too much about finding a partner if you are single, however a friend made now could turn into something more further down the line. This is certainly not a time to be selfish, and you will want to share this platonic love with others who may be lonely and need drawing out of their hermit shell. So from experiencing this sense of community with your own peers, you will be inspired to create communities for others.
Aquarius 2018 ~ The Decans
Aquarius Decan 1 ~ Jan 22 to 29 (0º to 10º)
No outer planets are messing with your mind just yet. Instead you start the year with a loving Venus conjunction from Jan 18 to 25. This gives you uncomplicated pleasures and a window of time where you can just enjoy yourself and not think too much. Allow yourself to ‘be’ rather than ‘do’. The Ceres opposition from Feb 19 to Apr 17 in your marriage house can work in a positive or negative way. It could bring a healer into your life who discourages you from achieving pentacles in the material sense. Instead they are all about the spiritual pentagram of wisdom. In the end this can manifest in material security, but it is not the end goal. You might also collaborate with someone who is very interested in working with earth energies and ecology. Spending time in nature with someone you love will work wonders for your relationship. This healing time is essential just before the awkward moments of the Venus square from Apr 2 to 6. You can always use this aesthetically pleasing aspect to work on art projects and anything that demands good design. Squares love to be channelled into projects that need some elbow grease.
After all that scrubbing and scouring you can enjoy the Venus trine from Apr 26 to 30. Again take the time to have some fun, Venus is always about balancing your life between socialising and being creative with training hard and deferring gratification. Venus comes along just when you feel like you need to sit in a pretty garden, feast your eyes on colour and breathe in the perfume. Now the main transit of the year when Uranus enters Taurus on May 15 to square your decan all the way until Nov 6. (More about Uranus in the second half of the year when it goes retrograde.) You go from fresh water waterfalls to roaring fires then with the Mars conjunction from May 22 to Jun 9. You will be filled with energy and passion which you can now plough into ambitious projects. If you are a home maker then this will heat up the kitchen ready to invite guests. At this time you function as a hub for the family to get together and affirm their bonds. Then the goddess of love enters your marriage house with the Venus opposition from Jun 16 to 20. The focus is on giving to others. Another way to use Venus would be to get some groups together and switch on your social life. At this time you make a fantastic facilitator and host for others. Around Jun 21 Venus is opposite Mars and you may feel pulled in two directions. But this is also a very ‘opposites attract’ kind of energy, so your love life is given a boost if you are on the lookout for a long-term relationship.
By now you should be really feeling the winds of change blowing hard from the Uranus square and this effect will be felt strongly until Nov 6 when Uranus will briefly retrograde back into Aries for a short while. Now you have to prepare for a year of awakenings, shocks, surprises, excitements and big change. You will want to uproot yourself and possibly move away to pastures new. Uranus is like the menopause, or maybe it will actually BE the menopause, for this transit can feel a bit like a midlife crisis even if you are only in your 20s or 30s. This period is also like the Fool card in the tarot. All possibilities are open to you and it might feel like you are heading towards the edge of a cliff at various points. Just keep your wits about you because falling off metaphorical cliffs is very easy to do at this time. Planning your life will be impossible as there is just too many options and too many spanners being thrown in the works. But these are not bad spanners! In fact they are much needed destiny points that are shaking you from stagnation. Surprisingly, Aquarians actually hate change since Saturn is their ancient ruler and they are a fixed sign. Aquarians can resist necessary change to the point that when it does happen it becomes quite spectacular as a rebound reaction to being suppressed for so long.
Back to nature now with the nurturing Ceres trine from Jul 1 to 22. This prepares you for the zap from the Lunar Eclipse conjunction on Jul 27. With the eclipse and Uranus you will need to be very grounded to avoid feeling wired so take advantage of the Ceres trine while you have it. You have a huge amount of transits during this part of the year so you will be kept very busy! The rollercoaster starts with the Mars conjunction from Jul 13 to Aug 12. You should have a ton of energy with the double dose of Mars retrograde in your sign on Jun 27. This will be both enriching and empowering as this is a very Plutonic type of transit. You could find that your confidence brings wealth too as you will not fear speaking your truth. Wow, with Uranus’s truth vibrations, taking the red pill is pretty much your only option this year. Avoiding the illuminated path could result in some shocking news. If you don’t choose to make the change, Uranus’s thunderbolt will do it for you and most likely this will be during the second Mars conjunction from Sep 21 to Oct 4. After that you can loosen your hair and enjoy the Venus trine from Aug 9 to 14 for a romantic interlude.
The witchy Lilith conjunction from Aug 28 to Oct 13 complements the Uranian energy very well where you can work your manifesting energy into making the world a more honest place. All that means is speaking from the heart and the Ceres trine from Sep 11 to 22 will really help open your heart chakra centre in alignment with the earth. This is why it is always so important to spend time in nature. Alignment with a natural vibration re-humanises you and is a good antidote to Uranus’s technology. The Venus square from Sep 13 to 22 is also another opportunity to revamp the way you approach relationships. You get a double dose of the goddess of love with the Venus Retrograde square from Oct 18 to 27. There is a huge amount of renovation going on this year, so that you will be a totally new person in 2019. There is now a treat of the Jupiter sextile from Nov 8 to Dec 23. This will give you a taster of more joyful and humorous approaches to problems next year with Jupiter fully settled in Sagittarius. This helps you see the funny side of Uranus’s crazy and unpredictable changes, which have come to an end (For now!). The Ceres square from Nov 17 to 29 could see you suffering minor digestive issues due to the stress of so much change happening all at once. The Venus square is a minor annoyance before Christmas from Dec 6 to 13, which might be about planning what to do with awkward relatives.
Aquarius Decan 2 ~ Jan 30 to Feb 1(10º to 20º)
You have the ease of no outer planets messing with your mind at all this year. So life is simple with the usual ups and downs of the lesser transits which are easy to cope with on their own. You do have the remainder of the Jupiter square from Jan 1 to 20, but nothing really major. Use its energy to put into projects that need some boldness. Jupiter does tend to exaggerate and push big ideas to their very limits. But you don’t have enough time with Jupiter to really get into trouble, so you might as well get some mileage out of it. At the same time you have the turbo-charged Mars square from Jan 1 to 9. Together these powerhouse transits can drive you forward with projects that demand great self-confidence and some bare-faced cheek. All this before the Lunar eclipse opposition in your marriage house on Jan 31. This will be great for shining a glaring spotlight over any stagnant energy in relationships. The illumination will not let mushrooms grow that’s for sure. So the next 3 months you will get a refreshing breeze of hope and happiness in all unions with others, romantic or otherwise. It is interesting that the Ceres opposition from Jan 1 to Feb 6 is also in your marriage house because this could be helpful, healing advice from a counsellor. The Venus conjunction from Jan 26 to Feb 2 also repairs fractured relationships and you will be feeling more tolerant and loving. The Venus square from Apr 8 to 15 is a lot less tolerant though! You might want to spend time alone working on art projects while the square gives you some sharp edges to chisel with. The soft and yummy Venus trine from May 3 to 10 rewards all your hard work with a big sloppy kiss and cuddle. Take time out to canoodle. The Venus opposition from Jun 23 to 30 is also really lovely for bringing romance into your life, whether it is to put the heart back into an established relationship or to attract a new one into your life.
Relationship re-vamps are on the table with a sexy Solar Eclipse opposition in your marriage house on Aug 11. At the same time the Mercury Retrograde opposition from Aug 4 to 18 is also helpful for re-evaluating what you want from relationships. This time is also great for learning about how other people tick and you might make a connection with a teacher. Guides are around to help you sort out what needs weeding. Some people can be a challenge but at the same time make you think. You will soon find out you gives you energy despite being difficult, and who are just draining annoyances. There are two delicious trines that follow each other and they will help renew your faith in human nature. The Venus trine from Aug 17 to 27 is excellent for taking a holiday with your loved one because it is also followed by the earthly delights of the Ceres trine from Sep 28 to Oct 19. This is marvellous for treating your family to good food, (Home cooked if you are a wiz in the kitchen), or just go somewhere where you can pick fruit straight off the tree to your mouth. Eat the Sun! After a relaxing and quiet interlude, there is a passionate period starting with the Mars conjunction from Oct 10 to 29. You are raring to go whether it be with your career ambitions or pursuing a love object. Once you have the desired goal or person the charming Lilith conjunction from Nov 5 to Dec 31 will keep them or it in your grasp. At the same time the Venus square from Dec 17 to 27 adds a great deal of spice to the affair. Hopefully this should flower into more than just a passing fling as you have the Jupiter sextile to look forward to just in time for Christmas. Put your best costume on to receive flamboyant Jupiter on Dec 24. Merry Yuletide!
Aquarius Decan 3 ~ Feb 9 to 18 (20º to 30º)
The main treat for your decan is the Jupiter square from Jan 21 to Apr 25. Don’t worry about the square, for Jupiter can magically transform its edgy energy into a diamond. The secret is knowing when to stop and learning self-control. If you are a daring person anyway it might be hard to curb your enthusiasm, just make sure you take a deep breath before you blurt out your big idea or leap into the unknown. If you are a cautious bod normally then this is the big push you need to inflate yourself. Yeah… go for it. Expansion is Jupiter’s middle name, but while you are growing don’t forget to press on the brakes now and then so you don’t prematurely burst. It’s like blowing one of those humungous bubbles. You will be surprised at what you can achieve when you breath sloooowwwwww. During this period you get the added bonus (If you can call it that) of the Mars square from Jan 10 to 26. This could do quite a good job of chiselling that rough diamond into the square that you want when Jupiter and Mars overlap from Jan 21 to 26. The Solar Eclipse conjunction on Feb 15 will keep you on your toes in your love life as before it is the florid Venus conjunction from Feb 3 to 10. You are introduced to a new social sphere and a possible new partner too if you are single. No major transits for a while. You can take it easy with an uncomplicated life and get your energy back for dealing with the silly gossip of the Venus square from Apr 16 to 24. Just brush it aside for the nonsense that it is. Save yourself for the jollity of the happy Venus trine from May 11 to 19. This will bring you a few light-hearted days of utter pleasure, so don’t waste it moping.
Wow, you do have quite a lot of revising ahead with so many retrogrades and confrontations with the shadow in the oppositions. But this also means the friction can create passion, excitement and attraction, so don’t allow yourself to get too frustrated. Enjoy all the fun of the fair as you are whisked this way and that. The first love hump will be the Venus opposition from Jul 1 to 9. This will give you the opportunity to bury your head in someone’s shoulder while careering through the ghost train. After that you are sent backwards through the big dipper with the Mercury Retrograde opposition from Jul 26 to Aug 3. This might actually be quite fun as you regress back to the mentality of a teenager. Silly arguments with old school friends might occur at this time, or your partner might just start acting like a big, fat kid. You might have to forcibly remove the buns from their face with the greedy Ceres opposition from Aug 15 to Sep 5. A few home truths might help loved ones get a healthier diet which helps your relationship in the long term. You may meet resistance at first but they will thank you in the end. The big thank you might come in the shape of the Venus trine from Aug 28 to Sep 8. The magical Venus Retrograde trine occurs from Nov 1 to 15 and you are lucky enough to get the station direct in your decan also which happens from Nov 16 to Dec 2 so the focus is on love, love, love for an extended period of time. A love affair with an old flame is very possible or you may reunite with a partner with whom you broke up with fairly recently. The Ceres trine from Oct 20 to Nov 11 gives ample time for healing and forgiveness. Take a break so you can both spend time away from electronic interruptions. Enjoy simple pleasures. Then you are both revived so much that you can do the.. erm.. obvious with the Mars conjunction from Oct 30 to Nov 15. Need I say more! For non-lovers, this is a great revival time for old ideas that had gone stale but are now given a fresh leash of life thanks to looking at them from a new perspective. Then Mercury Retrograde square from Dec 2 to 12 will certainly give you some oomph to turn concepts over and over, and fuel some lively debates that help inspire you down new avenues of thought.
