Areas of Expansion in 2013 for Aquarius: Romance, Creativity, Children, Recreation, Work, Health, Service
Your Aquarius 2013 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until June 25, 2013, your romantic and creative worlds continue to expand and grow. You are learning to express yourself playfully and creatively without apology, and more willing to take some personal risks in order to do so. You are opening up on an affectionate level, and others around you are likely to find this to be a pleasant surprise! 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.
This influence began in June 2012, but may have been dormant in the last quarter of 2012. From February 2013, you are raring to go creatively. Others tend to look upon you with affection.
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, or could turn you on to a new hobby or form of recreation. Romantic opportunities tend to abound during this cycle. Creatively speaking, you can be filled with ideas and plans for realizing a dream. Some of you could be welcoming another person's children into your experience.
Potential negatives: Excessive emphasis on, or attention to, having fun to the detriment of other life departments. This is more likely to occur in January or March, when you may be glossing over important practical details. Watch for a tendency to gamble or lend indiscriminately during this period. Also, be careful that you separate your personal life and professional life.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel supported and confident during this cycle that began in June 2012.
From June 25th onward, your work, daily routines, and health routines begin to expand and grow. This is a time when your work projects or duties expand, or you have more employment opportunities. You can be so confident of your abilities to take on projects and endeavors, however, that you overload your plate, so do watch for that. This influence is with you until July 2014.
You find more joy in your work (as long as you don't overload), self-improvement endeavors, and taking care of your health. If you provide a service to others, it is likely to prosper. You are more successful in hiring people to work for you, if applicable, and improvements to your working environment are likely. It can be easier than usual to find employment now. You may get a new job during this cycle, or significantly improve an existing one. Work tends to be very available to you. You can be very focused on what really matters to get ahead, and recognition for your efforts may be forthcoming, particularly in July and December, when higher-ups recognize your talents and efforts.
You are proud of how useful you are to others during this cycle. The more integrity and honesty you bring to your services, the more "payback" you will receive. Health is likely to prosper now, and medical procedures or programs, if necessary, are more likely to be successful. There may be an inclination to put on some weight, however, if you don't watch your sweet tooth. Some people get a new pet during this cycle. You might make new friends through or at your work. You are bringing fresh and original ideas to the work you do and the services you offer. Overload or the magnification of problems surrounding work can be experienced during this cycle, and are more likely in August, when you may be pulled in different directions due to a chaotic schedule or possibly circumstances that prevent you from fulfilling your responsibilities.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Career, Reputation, Authority Figures, Parents
Your Aquarius 2013 Horoscope points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary "slimming down" in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
The area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules career, profession, reputation, and public life. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen.
This influence began October 5th, 2012, and is with you until September, 2015. It can be felt most strongly earlier or later in the cycle, depending on when you were born.
During this cycle, your career requires important decisions and choices. Important projects may come to fruition, and this can be a time for reaping their rewards, but there can be some disappointment now as well if you haven't achieved what you wanted to achieve. You are more accountable for what you have and haven't done.
Projects that you have been working on behind the scenes or that you've left unfinished might come to fruition or you could be using them to further your career. Your career might involve more altruistic goals or helping others could figure strongly. You may need to employ some caution with regards to elements from your past, as these might come before the public eye in some way during this cycle.
You may acquire a higher position now, and you are likely to feel the weight of increased responsibilities that come with it. There can be issues to handle with a parent (more likely the father) or parent figure, or a boss/authority figure in your life.
While this period can be a tad difficult at times, in 2013, it's likely to be a rewarding period. A more creative way to earn money is quite possible now, as you are drawing upon latent talents and skills that you may never even knew you had, or that have been dormant.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Communications, Transportation, Neighborhood Activities, Daily Life
Your 2013 Aquarius Horoscope points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
In March 2011, you entered a lengthy period in which communications, learning, and connections may be unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. This influence is with you throughout 2013 and beyond. You are opening yourself up to expressing your more unique ideas. Your daily life is bound to be very colorful. Regular encounters with neighbors, relatives, and acquaintances, as well as everyday activities and business activities, are all changing quite dramatically. In addition, your basic mental attitudes are evolving. Your interests can become quite eclectic during this cycle.
In May, August, and October-November, there can be some stress experienced due to a chaotic schedule, forced bed rest, or support of others that eats into your time.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Spirituality, Private life, The Past, Home, Family, Career
Your 2013 Aquarius Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It's a time for "out with the old, in with the new".
Attitudes towards spirituality and the past continue to transform this year. In March-April and September-October especially, purging of past attitudes and confronting inner demons feels rewarding and positive. You are confronting deeply buried aspects of your psyche. You will be learning unusual things about the hidden side of your nature, and with this knowledge you are also learning to control it. Things that you've buried, such as past events that you are ashamed of, emerge and require you to handle them. Facing your ghosts honestly is required of you now and in coming years.
March-April and September-October are also strong for making important changes in your professional image, and for finding outlets for communicating with others about the inner changes that are happening. However, there may be some challenges in May, August, and November, when pressures from work, daily responsibilities, and possibly relatives can leave you feeling overwhelmed. Center yourself as much as possible and cut out those activities that are only serving to stress you out.
In 2013, the balance between attention to home, personal goals, and private life and attention to career and public life comes into focus. Changes are necessary in order to manage both life departments, as over-attention to either will leave you feeling out of sorts and guilty. Nevertheless, career and reputation are extremely important to you this year - these things can bring the most challenge, but also the most joy. Nurture your desire to feel accomplished and to meet your responsibilities.
