January 20 - February 18
Physiology: The ankles and the Spine (parasympathetic nervous system).
Rising Sign: (Ascendant or First House Cusp): Cool, aloof, intellectual look, gives the impression of being least impressed but sensitive underneath.
Personality Traits of Aquarius: Our birthday greetings to all of you who are Aquarians one of the most brilliant, inventive but also eccentric signs of the Zodiac! Ruled by Uranus, those born under this sign have excellent ideas, but need someone else to make them work! They have strong humanitarian instincts and are usually very unbiased in the way they help others. Aquarius is an Air sign (even though its symbol is the Water Bearer!).
Aquarians can be coolly sarcastic, and because they are very intellectual, their wit can pass above people's head and afterwards hit them! In communication, they are usually very clear and precise like pilots. They are rational and objective but stubborn at the same time. They will listen to everyone, but you cannot change their mind unless you appeal to their reasoning ability. They make good friends but are better with groups sharing similar ideals than individual friendship.
Aquarians are often musical but need some Earth planets to make use of their genius. They are usually original but somewhat erratic in their artistic taste. They do well in marketing, media and advertising because of their conceptual ideas and communication skills.
In love, Aquarians can be cool and aloof. Yet these individuals are quite loyal and dependable in their steadfastness of love (unless they have Venus in Pisces). They can be unconventional both in their approach to love and also to who they are drawn to.
Jupiter has been squaring your Sun Sign from 2011 till mid June 2012. It also sextiles it from June 2012 till June 2013! Take advantage of new and exciting opportunities that are brought about by experiences with foreign countries and travels during this lucky period. This is the time to expand all your goals and use the "luck" element which you feel during this transit.
Jupiter represents your ability to be in the right place when opportunities develop and your need to expand your horizons: 2012 till June 2013 will be a particularly good time for all Gemini writers, publishers, philosophers, teachers, and those involved with import/export business. Just pace yourself and don't take on more than you can handle.
From beg Apr to mid Aug 2012, Venus makes you even more charismatic and keeps your lifestyle socially active. Use this period to enhance your personality with a new hairstyle, designer outfit, or beauty treatments.
Mars makes you more assertive and focused on your goads in July and Aug 2012 with higher drive and energy.
Throughout 2012 (already in effect from 2011), you will become very focused, disciplined and productive and this will be one of the best years for steady achievement and fruition of longterm goals.
Neptune had been adversely affecting your Sun sign from the last few years and hopefully you were able to use the inspirational sadness to become more spiritual and creative. You will feel that you are again much more clear in your goals now.
The next few years are excellent for inventive ideas and anything to do with new technology as Uranus sextiles your Sun Sign. However, you will also be more restless and will not be able to settle in normal 9 to 5 routine work and will need more freedom from any restrictions. Try not to be too unconventional in your approach as you assert your individuality.
When Mars makes an adverse aspect to your Neptune, this transit reduces the immune system of the body and you are more prone to scandals, out of wedlock pregnancies and other nightmares scenarios.
Depending on the age group listed below, you are also more prone to stress related illnesses including the flu and generally need to be careful that you don't set yourself up for a nightmare period. Be extra careful when signing any documents, investing in stocks on going to psychics or tarot card readers (astrologers are a bit more dependable!).
You also need to be extra careful with the ocean (drowning incidents) or being kidnapped! Of course this doesn't happen all the time but at least don't put yourself in that position. False accusations, feelings of betrayal and being a victim of scam artists is also a hallmark of this transit.
Here are the dates given for the different age groups: (For the exact dates, you should consider having Your 12 Month Forecast done):
Everyone born in 20s and 60s: There is a very stressful period from mid Aug 2012 till mid Oct 2012 for those of you born in the 60’s (lot of Hollywood actors) as well as the 20’s age group (Age of the Golden Movies who have to be careful of heart because of their age anyway and stress related illnesses). 60s age group has Neptune in Scorpio and is the most radical (Princess Diana's accident happened during a Mars Neptune transit).
