Today's Astro Highlight for Aquarius from Cafe Astrology
May 23, 2018
Your ideas are genuinely creative right now, dear Aquarius, and you are both motivated and confident. There is a dramatic and competitive touch to virtually everything you do today with the Sun in harmony with Mars in your sign. If you are engaging in a competition of sorts, physical or mental, you are more likely to come out a winner right now. There is an exciting, daring, and spontaneous energy to the day, and it becomes you instead of unsettles you. You are enthusiastic about making changes to a relationship, romance, or hobbies, or you might experience a new desire to move forward in these areas. You can be filled with wonderful ideas, and you seem to have the courage to run with them. Take advantage of the rush of energy around you to ride your internal waves. Note that next month, Mars will retrograde in your sign and you may be reevaluating your desires. However, for now, a direct approach works wonders.
Creativity: Good ~ Love: Good ~ Business: Excellent
Today's Aquarius Horoscope by Patrick Arundell
(Aquarius 21 January - 19 February)
Wednesday 23rd May
The Sun has been in a quieter sector of your chart of late, which may have coincided with a desire to be more nurturing to yourself. If you haven't had too much of a chance to unwind, then the coming days could see you opting for a spa treatment or a relaxing massage. However equally, the emerging more energized vibe can bring out a desire to create, enjoy life and have fun.

This Month: Aquarius
May 2018 Aquarius Monthly Horoscope: The month begins with a strong focus on family and attention to domestic matters, dear Aquarius, and your nesting instincts are strong. Creative energy increases as May progresses. In fact, the second half of the month plays considerably differently for you than the first - you're coming out of your shell, big time. Uranus enters your sector of home, though, and there are exciting and perhaps disruptive themes related to your personal life as a result. Reach out to others later in the month, and don't pass up on opportunities to network, particularly around the Full Moon on the 29th. Until then, however, it's perfectly fine and, in fact, entirely useful to take things easy and connect with your family or inner world.
This could be a time when you pursue a bit of a home "makeover," or make other changes such that home life is less routine and more dynamic. While you may not be especially sociable in the first couple of weeks of May, you're building your energy and taking extra, much-needed personal time. Later in May, your houses of Substance are in especially good form. You're likely to feel particularly good about the work you do, the effort you put forth, and your natural talents. There is increased motivation for tackling tasks that you previously felt were monotonous or uninteresting. Imagination and intuition enhance financial and domestic ventures.
Transportation or commuting problems iron themselves out and educational and mechanical matters run more smoothly in May. Connecting, traveling, and communicating become simpler and more straightforward. Even so, there can be some disagreements in the first weeks of the month to deal with. You want to shine in your personal life, with family, and at home, and there can be good opportunities to expand, strengthen, and enhance family relationships. The domestic life is busy, mostly pleasant, and rewarding, although changes are highly likely and there can be some hectic energy as a result. Changes in your family dynamic or home life may be in the offing. Do watch for hasty actions and words as you approach mid-month. Everything may seem to be moving very quickly.
From the 11-13, you seem to be receiving the support you need and time spent alone or with family can be therapeutic. A Mercury-Uranus alignment can bring in new ideas or information that seems to push you forward into new territory. Avoid too-quick decisions but keep your eyes open for a potential new interest or channel for learning and communicating. Watch for making decisions from an agitated or pressured frame of mind.
There is a strong center of activity from the 14-16. A New Moon occurs in your home and family sector, pushing for a new beginning or fresh start. At the same time, both Uranus (your ruler) and Mars are changing signs, and right after they do, they form a clashing aspect with one another. This presents a challenge to make a change. You may be feeling caged in or hushed, and you are in no mood to take orders! You can be filled with energy to move personal plans forward and Mars entering your sign wants you to face things head-on, directly, and without delay.
Uranus moving into your solar fourth house is big news. For one, it's your ruler, and for another, Uranus doesn't change signs very often - in fact, this only happens every seven years. This transit is a lengthy one in which new and exciting energy is brought to your domestic life. Opportunities to move, expand, or change things up can seem to come out of the blue. You may be in the position to do a balancing act between your home/family and personal life. Although life may not feel as secure as it used to, the changes occurring during this transit will stimulate you and propel you forward. You might be seeking more freedom now, and if your current set-up feels confining or limiting, you'll need to make changes. Your attitude towards the past and traditions is bound to go through changes, too. Old ties to your past may be severed, and at times this can be unsettling, but ideally, you are taking important steps towards carving out an identity that better suits and represents you.
Enjoy the groundedness of the 17-19, when decisions seem easier or simply more logical. Venus' move into your work and health sector from the 19th is good for finding some peace or harmony in your daily routines. Work or daily life may seem more enjoyable and pleasant. Work benefits from openness to new methods or teamwork. Home and personal updates can be quite successful now, and even small improvements can feel wonderful now.
The 21st forward is a period that brings a more outgoing, playful, and creative energy to your life and, for some, budding romance. Mars has been in your sign, boosting up your confidence and courage, since the 16th. Now, the Sun moves into your creative sector and encourages you to have some fun, express yourself more freely, and share yourself with others. The 23-24 is particularly dynamic. You are both motivated and confident, and there can be a dramatic and competitive touch to everything you do at this time! If you are engaging in a competition of sorts, physical or mental, you are more likely to come out a winner. Keep in mind that Mars will turn retrograde in your sign this summer, and there can be some backtracking to do then, but for now, a direct approach works wonders. You may want to watch for jumping too quickly into things, though, as you may need to revisit or reassess these matters later.
The Jupiter-Neptune trine aspect that first formed in December forms exactly in the last week of May, pulling up these themes more strongly. In truth, its energy hasn't left us and will continue to affect us until August or September. However, its exact aspect on the 25th can color the entire week. Business, financial, and reputation matters can improve and develop in almost magical ways. You may be carrying yourself with more self-respect and attracting positive attention or joining with people who further your career or personal interests, and through their wisdom or faith in you, you are encouraged to reach your highest potential. Your ability to earn a living from what you love doing increases, you grow to love your work/responsibilities, or your work transforms in pleasant ways. The Full Moon on the 29th is also strong for the discovery of your true feelings, particularly about friends, dreams, hopes, and happiness goals.
This Year: Aquarius
2018 Yearly Horoscope Overview
The year ahead is a special one for career, reputation, friendship, and relationships, dear Aquarius. You’re held in high esteem, particularly on professional or public levels.
In 2018, you’re learning a lot about partnerships, independence, and self-assertion. The North Node in your partnership sector for most of the year suggests both rewards and challenges in your one-on-one relationships; and Mars in your sign for many months, some of which time is spent retrograde, suggests an important examination of your needs to stand on your own feet and assert your independence.
Fiery, assertive Mars first enters your sign in mid-May, just as your ruler, Uranus, moves into a new sign after spending seven years in Aries. Changes occurring now are complicated, and not everyone will recognize you at times!
Mars provides you with extra motivation, energy, and power to move forward with personal plans. You are learning to go after what you want without apology. However, there are hurdles, particularly while Mars is retrograde from June 26-August 27. Energy may be wasted, or you could feel as if you’re spinning your wheels, uncertain about where to direct excess energy. You might second-guess certain goals or your confidence. Desires can be complicated, and you might often feel frustrated, restless, or impatient. You’ll have two more months after the retrograde to sort everything out, and personal plans can be put on the front burner again. In the process, you’re likely to learn a lot about who and what you want.
Uranus is transitioning into a new sign, and you’re experimenting with new feelings, ways of expressing yourself, and personal interests. Uranus moving out of your communications sector for part of the year (and more permanently in 2019) suggests better daily schedules and routines and more focus on your studies. However, living conditions and arrangements may be up in the air.
Career matters are very favorable this year, and your reputation is likely to improve. It’s a great time for visibility. You are noticeable, and you make a real impact on others. Those in authority tend to look on you favorably. Communications, promotion, and word of mouth are especially beneficial for you.
Saturn spends the year (and beyond) in your solar twelfth house, and there can be a lot of work done behind the scenes. This is an introspective period, and even though you’re often putting yourself “out there” this year, there can be a lot going on inside. This can be an important time for facing fears and letting go of old attachments.
You’re feeling more responsible and competent, and others recognize these traits as well. The attention you receive is positive for the most in 2018, and after November, while Jupiter moves out of your career and reputation sector, it moves into harmony with your sign and benefits your personal and social life, so you’re not losing any favor. You end the year feeling quite excited about new opportunities, projects, and friendships or group associations. You’re beginning one of the best periods in twelve years for connecting with like-minded people and enjoying good company.
This Year in Love: Aquarius
2018 Love Horoscope for Aquarius
New major planetary trends in 2018 don’t directly impact your romance and partnership sectors, dear Aquarius. This usually points to a status quo year — one in which you’re in a better position to direct your life in the relationship or love department.
However, you continue to experience powerful eclipses in your sign and your opposing sign this year, and these encourage you to make big decisions about how you live your life vis a vis partnerships. The first of this series occurred in August 2016, and the last will occur in January 2019. In 2018, Lunar Eclipses in April and September bring epiphanies about partnerships – it’s time to begin clearing up past patterns that have been holding you back from personal fulfillment, particularly those that are relationship-centered or that revolve around your confidence, boldness, and authenticity of expression. The final thrust will occur in January 2019, but for now, you are experiencing greater awareness of problems and especially lacks or flaws.
In the same vein, the North Node continues to move through your partnership sector until November 8th. The North Node moving through your partnership most of the year suggests that the path to fulfillment, again this year, is recognizing your relationship needs. The challenge is to work on sensitizing yourself to the needs of others and to get over any fears of the demands a partner or significant people in your life might make on you.
Of course, there are many minor trends that move in and out of these sectors throughout the year that point to small trends.
Your romance sector is ruled by quick-moving Mercury. Your casual love relationships are particularly vulnerable to Mercury’s retrograde periods.
