January 20 – February 18
INVENTIVE • INTELLECTUAL • CHARITABLE
Aquarius is all things that start with "I": individual, independent, imaginative, innovative, even a little idiosyncratic—and that’s what everyone loves about you. This sign is very against social climbing of any kind, for it offends your democratic approach to life—all for one and one for all. While others would avoid being called a bit of an oddball, you wear your quirky label as a badge of honor. You ask, “Who wants to be thought of as vanilla?” Others’ opinions of you don’t matter. The Aquarian woman carries her own yardstick for success, for she walks to a different drummer. Aquarius is a fixed sign, meaning you like stability. Once your partner has your heart, you will likely stay loyal forever.
Jupiter has lit your tenth house of fame and honors, bringing happiness, growth, and prosperity. You are about to see considerable professional reward. You are superb at understanding others' motives—you are the investigative reporter and prosecutor, uncovering scandal and bringing the perpetrators to justice. You may not have to wait long to see the results of Jupiter's move into your fame sector—May could be a big month. When you schedule an interview, show you are a big thinker with multiple ideas. If having your own business is a goal, it’s the perfect time to launch. You are on the verge of a major career breakthrough. All that you worked to achieve over the past twelve years is coming to a pinnacle point. This is your year to shine.
As you enter 2018, the news is exciting and very welcome! Jupiter, the giver of gifts and luck, moved into Scorpio last October 10th and began to light your tenth house of fame and honors. Jupiter will stay there until November 8th, 2018. Jupiter brings happiness, growth, and prosperity while asking nothing in return. All of the work you put in over the past twelve years, since the last time Jupiter visited this part of your chart from October 2005 to November 2006, will come into play now.
The tenth house reflects your reputation and your legacy in the world—the prestige and honors you gain and how people value your work. It reflects achievements that are hard won over time—luck tends to have little to do with them. Ancient astrologers used to call the tenth house the house of dignity or the house of leadership. You are about to see considerable professional reward for your experience, savvy judgment, management style, and your ideas and ingenuity during the coming weeks and months. You will soon get access to influential people from many walks of life, and turn yourself into an authority in your field. You can choose how big you want to be—from the president of the Parent-Teacher Association to the Secretary-General of the United Nations. You are valued in any role you choose for yourself. The point is this year you will get your chance.
The tenth house also points to your family traditions and the generations that came before you, and those who will come after. The person you are today, and the work that you do or will do, may have been shaped by the generations of family who came before. We specifically see the influence of the mother or the father, whoever had the greatest influence on your choice of career (originally or over time). Their influence almost always leaves an imprint, large or small.
Jupiter is now in Scorpio, and for Aquarius and those with Aquarius rising, Scorpio rules the tenth house. Scorpio is a sign known to excel in the ability to dig deep and uncover truth, and because you are a street-smart Aquarian, you are able to put disparate pieces of a puzzle together to create an answer that eludes others. You are superb at understanding others' motives, too. You are the investigative reporter and the prosecutor, uncovering scandal and bringing the perpetrators to justice. No one can lie to a Scorpio—nor to you, for you have Scorpio in such a prominent place in your solar chart.
Scorpio is also a highly financial sign with a natural flair for taking money and multiplying it through investment, so having this sign on the cusp of your tenth house might give you an interest in working in a financial field in 2018. Observers of Scorpio—and you have it on your career cusp—often have three distinct chapters of their lives, switching careers completely at various points in their lives. You may not have to wait long to see noticeable, gratifying results of Jupiter's move into your fame sector—May could work out to be a big month.
In the coming year, when you schedule an important interview, demonstrate that you are a big thinker. Go into that interview with more than one idea—have several ready in case your main idea does not interest the VIP you are seeing. If having your own business is a goal, work on that—this coming year would be perfect for launching it. You are on the verge of a major career breakthrough, the biggest of recent memory, going back more than a decade. All that you worked to achieve over the past twelve years is now coming to a pinnacle point. Jupiter, the great good fortune planet, will stand by, dear Aquarius. This is your year to shine.
