Expect your head to be filled with downright electrical ideas and inspiration as the week begins — and Monday should prove an excellent time to put some of these amazing discoveries into action. Your preoccupation with peculiar and intriguing ideas should continue through Wednesday, even if all you’re really doing is keeping yourself from getting bored. On Thursday and Friday, watch for a little romance to keep things interesting, especially if it involves an intellectual connection that turns to flirtation. This weekend, tend to the details and stick to the routine.
Career & Finance
It’s sometimes difficult to see change as it’s occurring, even if it’s occurring in plain sight. Be aware that the tides are turning on Monday and Tuesday, and be more perceptive than those around you. This will put you ahead of the game. A small discovery midweek is the key to something much bigger. Thursday, you bring what you’ve observed to a conversation with someone, and you notice, in the course of the chatting, a distinctly romantic subtext. Fascinating! Friday is defined by creative, unique interactions. Wear something eye-catching and be open to anything.
Love & Relationships
You’ve got some red-hot energy coming your way this week, and it just so happens it’s on Friday and Saturday — perfect for time with existing mates or new dates (whichever better describes your situation). If you’re looking for a fresh idea for your plan (or your online profile, or a message to send), you’ve got quite an imagination on Monday and Tuesday, so get going. Midweek’s got a lesson for you — are you a quick study or a slow learner? And after that red-hot energy (see above), Sunday’s best for a day of rest (and a little exercise for mood elevation and all-around well-being).
The Choice is Yours
A pair of powerful eclipses lead you to reconsider long-term goals this month. On May 9, a conventional Taurus Solar Eclipse in your 4th House of Roots may cause you to take a step back from a home-based project or address a family matter that you thought was already settled. It’s crucial that you firm up your foundation with a visionary Sagittarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your 11th House of Dreams and Wishes on May 25.
Illusory Neptune’s stressful square to the eclipse might attract you to an unrealizable goal or inspire you to invest more in a project that’s already draining your resources. It’s best to unburden yourself of unnecessary obligations, especially with the earthshaking Uranus-Pluto square on April 20. Save your strength to deal with unexpected emergencies or sudden opportunities that require your attention.
Your thoughts about the future may be nourished with new information this month — or overstuffed with choices that complicate decision making. Vivacious Venus, curious Mercury, the willful Sun, and hyperactive Mars enter diverse Gemini and your 9th House of Higher Thought and Faraway Places on May 9, 15, 20, and 31, respectively, presenting you with more options than you have time to explore. Your attraction to a variety of belief systems and distant cultures is enormously entertaining and educational but is likely to distract you from the real work of your daily life.
It’s time for you to choose one direction on May 20, with dispersive Jupiter’s third and final sesquisquare to steadfast Saturn. Commit yourself to one major goal by gathering your attention and pointing it in a singular direction. Doing so will advance your ambitions; failing to can keep you stuck where you are.
Keep in Mind This Month
Recognizing the difference between a passing interest and an enduring passion will help you to stop flirting with plans that have little likelihood of fulfillment.
Key Dates for Aquarius
May 20: Stroke of Genius
If you’re faced with a difficult problem today, thinking it through can pay off with an illuminating breakthrough when Uranus squares Pluto. Thoughtful Mercury’s quincunx with compelling Pluto runs you into a wall of doubt or a frustrating conversation. However, Mercury’s subsequent sextile to liberating Uranus awakens you with an epiphany that helps you discover an unexpected solution to this impasse.
Super Nova Days
May 26-28: Give Peace a Chance
An uncompromising Mars-Uranus semisquare on May 26 can spark a surprising conflict. Your unwillingness to meet others halfway could be genius or folly, but might alienate people either way. Philosophical Jupiter’s conjunctions with mental Mercury on May 27 and diplomatic Venus on May 28 arm you with insights and information that can resolve a sticky situation. Your willingness to see all sides of an issue restores intellectual and emotional connections.
Career: No Speeding
Putting your aspirations on a solid foundation is a key to professional success this month. You might not get immediate results, but coming up with a practical plan and finding the patience and discipline to stick to it is vital. Doing what you can to simplify your life, on the job and off, helps to clear your mind and establish your priorities. Four planets in earthy Taurus and your 4th House of Roots signal the need to become more settled in yourself and in your habits to create the stability you need to fulfill your professional potential. Just find a comfortable pace and stick to it.
You will begin picking up speed on May 9 when appealing Venus skips into clever Gemini and your 5th House of Creativity and Performance. This increases your capacity to entertain others, which is reinforced on May 15 when brainy Mercury makes the same shift. Your imagination and gift of gab can hit an even higher level as the Sun enters Gemini on May 20.
Now you are fully ready to play by sharing your unusual insights and original ideas. Showing a sense of humor without being silly is a plus. The second half of May is a great time to demonstrate your versatility. Your capacity to multi-task and your willingness to jump in and tackle jobs that aren’t in your primary area of expertise should earn you some appreciation. The last two weeks of May, though, may feel just a little shaky as your explosive ruling planet Uranus makes a stressful square with potent Pluto, provoking rebelliousness on your part.
Love: Home Is Where the Heart Is
Taking care of matters at home is a priority in the first half of May, with four planets in your domestic 4th House of Home. Building a stronger foundation in your family and getting more comfortable with yourself are keys to improving relationships.
The Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars are in stabilizing Taurus, where keeping things simple is the quickest way to happiness. If you’re worried and overthinking an issue, get a massage, eat some comfort food, go for a walk and enjoy the physical comforts of life.
The pace of your social activity should pick up when lovable Venus enters your 5th House of Romance and Play on May 9. This delightful transit occurs in the friendly sign of Gemini, which is perfect for flirting and teasing. Starting up conversations comes even more easily when chatty Mercury enters Gemini on May 15.
An even bigger dose of personal power and sex appeal arrives on May 20, when the Sun moves into your 5th House of Romance. Self-confidence rises, creativity grows and your ability to get attention can expand dramatically with this transit.
The month comes to a close on a high note when words flow cleverly with a brilliant Mercury-Jupiter conjunction on May 27. And then a delicious Venus-Jupiter conjunction on May 28 amplifies joy and offers more love with your current partner or with someone new. But even if you somehow miss the boat on these, Mars’ move into your 5th House of Romance on May 31 provides a powerful push toward romance.
You don’t have to be a follower to be a part of a community. As this week begins, the give and take of those who share your outlook (and sometimes challenge it!) is invaluable. In fact, the fresh perspective you get will stand you in very good stead around Wednesday and Thursday when the stars will present you with a challenge. Hint: This may be more about giving in than resisting. Then on Friday and over the weekend, a very positive kind of charge is in the air. Share of your vision and of yourself — others find you even more magnetic than usual!
Career & Finance
Yes, you’re resourceful, but others are an excellent resource on Monday. Pump their brains for expertise and input. Then expect some demotivators over the next few days. Whether it’s a setback, an underminer or assorted minor issues, it’s up to you to stay on track. Look at your long-term goals; how can you continue working toward them given current circumstances? Fresh, much more productive energy is on the way starting Friday. Whether you’re at work or at play now and over the weekend, your world sparks your thinking and your interest.
Love & Relationships
New possibilities open up in your love life — though that doesn’t necessarily mean temptation, if you’re already involved! You just find that romance means a lot more to you in new ways, which isn’t so bad. Once that new energy locks in, you go through a short phase of wondering what other options you’re missing out on, but that gets resolved by Friday evening. You may realize that you’re living your life just the way you want to, and the weekend seals the deal with an infusion of amazing personal energy that makes you more attractive than ever!
If you’re a lover of new ideas — which most Aquarians are — you’re in for an amazing month. Valiant Mars leads the way on March 12, when he enters pioneering Aries and your 3rd House of Information and Education to fire up your brain with intellectual challenges. The Sun shifts into bold Aries on March 20, marking the Spring Equinox, to add confidence in your search for answers and inspire courage in your drive to express yourself.
Sassy Venus makes the same transition on March 21, spicing up your conversations and learning experiences with flirtatious intrigue. Yet before you start indulging in pleasure, it pays to take another look at money matters, because the spacey Pisces New Moon falls in your 2nd House of Income on March 11. Conjunctions with aesthetic Venus and ardent Mars give you a boost of creativity to increase your cash flow, enhance your self-worth and put more delight in your personal life.
It’s time to leave financial fantasies behind and address current economic issues in a realistic manner when Mercury’s direct turn in your 2nd House of Finances on March 17 occurs very close to dreamy Neptune. If you’ve had a moneymaking plan on hold, however, the messenger planet picks up speed in the weeks ahead, which could get your deal moving again.
On March 27, the usually languorous Libra Full Moon in your 9th House of Faraway Places is agitated by hard aspects to Uranus, Pluto, Venus and Mars that could shake up travel plans. A sudden impulse to change your itinerary or take off for an exotic locale can inspire your mind, but may be overly ambitious for your budget.
Keep In Mind: If you can’t apply an exciting insight in your life right now, let it go. Many more bright ideas will be coming your way.
Career: Strike for Gold
Finances are a key issue this month, which opens with four planets in your 2nd House of Income. The life-giving Sun, charming Venus, aggressive Mars and brainy Mercury are all in Pisces to inspire dreams of greater resources. Your imagination is a powerful asset for recognizing economic opportunities. In fact, investing in activities that tap into your creativity might not seem like serious career moves, yet getting those juices flowing in any way can pay dividends down the road. Let your intuition, rather than your intellect, guide your choices.
Mental Mercury is running in reverse until the 11th, which might be good for clearing up old misunderstandings but not ideal for launching new projects. But pioneering Mars shifts into audacious Aries on the 11th, followed there by the Sun and Venus on March 20 and 21. These planets will be in your 3rd House of Communication where making new contacts and studying new subjects are favored. Try to be patient with people who aren’t as quick to pick up on concepts as you are. Impatience can spur conflicts that aren’t helpful to your ambitions. On the other hand, you might feel like some people are being verbally aggressive with you. Standing up for yourself without losing your cool can earn you major points. It’s fine to disagree as long as you can do it without being disagreeable.
Mars joins your revolutionary ruling planet Uranus on March 22 and the Sun and Venus will do the same on the 28th. These are electrifying days that can be marked by genius or marred by impulsive and uncooperative behavior.
Love: A Bold New World
A little pampering can do you some good this month. But don’t rely on someone else to treat you in the best possible way. While you’re not a candidate for abuse, giving yourself great treatment is how you can contribute to your happiness. The willful Sun is in gentle Pisces and your 2nd House of Self-Worth until March 20. This is why investing in activities and objects that make you feel good about yourself are recommended now. In fact, mental Mercury is in this part of your chart all month, encouraging imaginative thinking.
Attractive Venus is also in your 2nd House until the 21st, which is why rewarding yourself with sweet things, whether you think you deserve them or not, is wise. Active Mars is also in Pisces until March 11, signaling the benefit of doing what pleases you with less attention on fulfilling obligations and meeting the expectations of others. No, this isn’t about becoming selfish; it’s about ensuring that you’re well taken care of, even coddled and babied to remind you of how precious you really are.
Your electrifying ruling planet Uranus is triggered three times later this month to provoke bold and experimental behavior. Mars conjuncts Uranus on March 22, which often spurs a rebellious and independent attitude.
While trying unfamiliar experiences and breaking out of limiting situations are desirable expressions of this transit, impetuous and uncooperative behavior are its down sides. Yet the Sun and Venus join Uranus on the 28th, which can electrify your personal life with an exciting new person or event.
The intrepid Aquarius born on February 19 is eager to learn. They are restless, eccentrically spiritual, and emotionally fragile. Charming and attractive, they are also easily managed by others. Governed by their emotions, they are their own worst enemy at times. Though kindhearted and generous, they have a hard time feeling good about themselves.
Friends and Lovers
February 19 natives are always seeking love and approval. This can become a habit that undercuts their self-confidence if left unchecked. It’s not uncommon for them to allow themselves to be manipulated by so-called friends. Unfortunately, they behave in the same way toward love interests.
Children and Family
Many people born on this day cling to their past as a way of trying to understand the present. By nurturing their children, they nurture themselves. Their sensitivity and imagination are excellent tools for dealing with their youngsters.
February 19 natives often rely on food and drink and even drugs to escape feelings and fears. If they cannot break these habits, the dependencies become the problems. When food is strictly food, their problem disappears.
Career and Finances
People born on this date have an artistic sensibility that often makes itself known in their career choices. They are better at making money than at taking care of it. These luxury-loving souls enjoy spending money and balk at keeping a strict budget. Credit spending should be avoided.
Dreams and Goals
Although not particularly goal-oriented, February 19 natives are devoted to their dreams. Learning to move beyond potentially destructive role-playing can liberate them from insecurity. Because of their selfless nature, many of their dreams are for others. These individuals have incredibly high ideals.
They should avoid: Predictability, censure, irresponsibility
They should embrace: The joy of giving, ethics, leadership
