Summary: Saturn in your friendships and goals zone this year works with Jupiter and Uranus to expand travel, educational, and intellectual opportunities. A major emphasis on partnering up, with two eclipses and the movement of the fated North Node to this sector.
Extended Aquarius 2017 Horoscope: The end of 2016 saw some truly gorgeous aspects between some major heavy hitting planets in your goals, commitments, travel, and identity sectors, all making gorgeous and complementary aspects to your sign of Aquarius.
Luckily, these planets (Saturn, Uranus, and Jupiter) will continue to dance together throughout 2017 to help you achieve your dreams!
Saturn (one of your ruling planets) is still making his way through your 11th house of friendships and goals, throughout 2017, helping ground a group project, philanthropy or technology project, or other long-held dream. Saturn can feel limiting and restrictive at times, but he also clears a path for major rewards. By the time he leaves in December 2017, you may find you’ve made major progress on a project or goal!
You’ve also got good luck Jupiter transiting your 9th house of travel and education for most of the year, and since Jupiter works to bless and expand, you seem to be favored in areas of travel, spirituality, education, and vision.
I would plan a vacation for January or late August, when Jupiter and Saturn will work together to ensure you have the best time ever. Since Saturn is your ruler, these are actually wonderful times for you to act in any area of life! Jupiter will protect you!
Adding to your good fortune, Saturn will also be working with your other ruler, Uranus, in your communication house to bless commitments, short travel, siblings, vehicles, and writing projects. Look to May and November to make your moves!
Unfortunately travel could prove difficult in February, when Mars will conjunct surprising Uranus in your communication house and the pair will oppose Jupiter in your travel sector. You may encounter transportation or communication errors during this time.
March or early August could also prove difficult for contracts, siblings, vehicles, and travel, when mighty Jupiter in your communication house angers transformational Pluto in your closure zone.
July is another difficult travel month, when Uranus in your communication house gets caught in an angry blast from Mars in your work and health zone. It seems work or illness could disrupt fun plans.
Eclipses this year fall in your identity and relationship houses, and the good news is that these are pretty friendly eclipses this year!
February 10th sees a lunar eclipse in your partnership sector making beautiful music with three major heavy hitting planets- Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus (the latter two are your rulers!). This eclipse could usher in an engagement, marriage, or important new business partnership.
The solar eclipse on August 21st in this same sector of relationships has similarly gorgeous aspects, as it will not only invoke Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, but also bring Mars and the fated North Node to the party to help you achieve your relationship goals!
In fact, this focus on partners and relationships is further amplified by the movement of the fated North Node into this sector (Leo) in late April. The North Node transits point to areas of life that are experience expansion and benefits, and lucky for you, the North Node gets a lot of help from her friends this year!
In June, the North Node will reach out happily to Venus and Uranus, blessing commitments and relationships, whether business or personal in nature.
September is another gorgeous North Node month, as she’ll send smooches to both Saturn (your ruler) in your goals house and Jupiter in your travel zone. This would be a lovely time to travel with your one and only!
Okay, so going back to the eclipses, August 7th sees another eclipse- this time lunar- fall in your sign of Aquarius, and this eclipse will actually emphasize your individuality. Once again, this eclipse will reach out happily to Jupiter and Saturn in your communication and goals zones, blessing these area of life. Remember, lunar eclipses tend to bring situations to a completion, and solar eclipses see us launch new chapters and initiatives.
In fact, this year also sees the final eclipse of the Pisces/Virgo series, and this eclipse will be a solar eclipse occurring in your salary house on February 26th.
The eclipse will conjunct Neptune, and sextile Pluto in your closure house, suggesting that you could reap major financial rewards by closing out a chapter of your life. However, the eclipse will also opppose the North Node in your shared finances sector, suggesting that you may also have to spend a lot of money as well.
Look for this to come to a head around September 6th, when there’s a corresponding full moon in Pisces.
The end of the year sees the tide shift to other areas of life, as Jupiter moves into your 10th house of career in November, and Saturn moves into your 12th house of closure in December.
Jupiter in the 10th house will bring major rewards, benefits, and expansion to your status and profession. December is extra lovely, as good luck Jupiter makes a loving trine with Neptune in your salary house.
Mercury retrogrades this year from
April 9th- May 3rd (in Taurus/Aries, your houses of home and communication),
August 12th- Sept 5th (in Virgo, your shared finances house), and
December 3rd- 22nd (Sagittarius, your friendship and goals sector)
Since Mercury rules both your shared finances sector and your love and children zone, you may rethink and review these areas of life during those times as well.
Venus retrogrades from
March 4th-April 15th (in Aries/Pisces- your communication and money houses)
Venus rules both your home sector and your travel house.
