The Moon is in Libra all day, and creating order is the
focus through pleasing interactions with others and aesthetics in our
environment. We tend to solve problems diplomatically and tactfully under this
influence. Balancing our personal desires with those of another is likely to
figure strongly now. "Paralysis by analysis" could be an issue, as the tendency
to weigh all perspectives and to consider all possibilities can leave us sitting
on the fence, afraid to make a definite decision. Moderating, negotiating, and
compromise are themes today. However, with the Moon triggering the Uranus-Pluto
square this morning, there can be some tensions if we feel that others are
fencing us in or dictating our moves. Later today, the Moon trines Venus,
increasing our desire to establish a balance and to cooperate with others.
Home and family life are in strong focus this month, dear Aquarius. The domestic
life is busy, and it's a strong time for home projects as well as for
strengthening ties with those closest to you, particularly on the 4-5 and 11-12.
Even so, changes in your family dynamic or home life are
necessary, and may be a long time coming, as a Solar Eclipse
occurs on the 9th and brings powerful energy for new
beginnings in your personal life. Watch for temper tantrums
or making angry or too-revealing statements around the
16-20, when you're inclined to speak before you think about
the consequences. Your romantic life begins to assume more
importance as May progresses, and while there can be some social drama in your life now, for the most part you're likely to have a good time.
The last week of May presents a favorable period for announcing or showing your creative work.
It can mark an important culmination or turning point in a
friendship. The 27-28 is powerful for your romantic life.
This is a time for making pleasant connections.
Not everyone knows this about your sign, dear Aquarius, but people born under
this sign and those with an Aquarius Ascendant really take their career, income,
and service to others to heart. They need to feel good on a deep level about
what they do in order to feel good about themselves. In 2013, you will dig deep
into true motives and feelings about practical matters, and you have the chance
to come to a harmonious position or stance. While the steps you take may not be
giant or quick, you can be making significant changes as you come to a better
understanding of what it is you can and want to do in your work. You'll also
discover some of your most natural talents and put them to work for you. The
focus now is on really enjoying what you do. Although work can bring joy, it can
also bring some challenges. Discriminate carefully when it comes to taking on
new work or projects. There can be some feelings of blockage before you move
forward. Circumstances will conspire to remind you of the importance of structure,
responsibility, and reputation in your life. It's time to realign your goals
with what's inside. Many of you will be making changes so that your career path
better reflects the principles closest to your heart. But 2013 is certainly not
all about work, especially in the first half of the year, when you find new
avenues for entertainment and self-expression open up to you. Early February and
late May are especially strong for fun and games, and also for romance. August
can be busy with revelations and epiphanies for close relationships, but it can
also be a time when you are tempted to overload yourself with work, so do your
best to strike a good balance. Also, take extra care of your health in August.
All year, you are making big changes in terms of growing past stubborn attitudes
and beliefs, communicating more openly and frequently, and changing deeply
ingrained habits and systems of doing things. There can be times when private or
past matters come to light and, while it may feel uncomfortable at first, it can
also help release you from the past. You are redefining your attitude towards
money and possessions this year. While others may not always notice your
struggles or rush to your aid this year with Saturn in challenging aspect to
your sign, you nevertheless have some good energy with you to express yourself
creatively and originally, and your personal magnetism runs high.
Jupiter continues to enliven and expand your creative and romantic life until
the last week of June in 2013, dear Aquarius. While Jupiter's retrograde motion
from October 2012 to January 2013 may have brought some delays, from February to
June 2013, you are raring to go. New doors open for entertainment and love
affairs, as well as creative expression. Others find you more attractive and
interesting. Opportunities for casual love connections may be plenty now, but
may not lead to anything long-term. Nevertheless, this experience can serve to
open up many Aquarians to new ways of expressing themselves and can serve to
build their confidence or ego. Romance is fun, and connected with communications
as well. You might be especially playful and flirtatious in your communications
now. You are taking some exciting risks with your heart and your creativity.
While Aquarius is not a sign known to be dramatic, some of you could be
experiencing emotional ups and downs that certainly feel dramatic, whether or
not you express these swings to others.
Some of you may have recently, or might this year, turn a friendship into a
romance. Friends can be instrumental in getting you out and about meeting new
Watch for some excess in these areas of your life during this period,
particularly when it comes to money. Avoid lending to people you don't know
well, for example, and avoid spending beyond your means on your love life or
your entertainment desires during this period. Both are strong tendencies this
Otherwise, you are losing some of your inhibitions, enjoying yourself more
fully, and expanding your options on a social level. You may be meeting people
who increase your confidence, help you out, and generally bring happy and
positive energy into your life during this cycle. Jupiter occupies your work and
health sector in the second half of 2013.
Particularly strong periods for your powers of attraction occur when your
partnership ruler transits your sign, and when your romance ruler transits your
sign. This year, this occurs January 20-February 19.
From March 26-April 9, some of you could meet a love interest through the
computer or on the phone, possibly in your own neighborhood with lots of
exciting planetary activity going on in your communications sector.
Better times for love generally speaking are May 9-June 2 and June 27-July
22, when Venus is traveling through your romance and partnership sectors,
respectively. Even stronger days during these periods occur when Venus is
forming nice angles to your ruler (Uranus), on May 18-19 and July 7-8; and when
Venus aligns with Jupiter in your romance sector on May 27-29..
Mercury's retrograde periods can bring some minor hiccups to your
love life. In 2013, Mercury retrogrades from February 23-March 17, June 26-July
20, and October 21-November 10. If a lover is distant during these periods, give
him/her some space and don't pressure. You'll manage these periods best if you
Other longer-term influences don't directly affect your love sectors, but
they do influence your personality and areas of interest this year. Saturn is
putting pressure on career and reputation matters this year, and
responsibilities can feel weighty at times. Those Aquarians affected by a Saturn
square to their Sun in 2013 (born January 4-February 9) can feel unsupported at
times this year, and a heavy or negative manner might impact their ability to
meet others, if they are not careful. Uranus helps to bring new interests,
opening up alternative ways of communicating and connecting, however.

an Aries with a Leo Ascendant, read the forecast for both
Aries and Leo.
