Aquarius 2006 - Forecast for Aquarians

Here's a look at the major planet activity in 2006. This post will only be meanigful to people who know how to read astrology charts. It's a summary of some of the major planet aspects and movements in 2006.

I'm not a fan of forecasts by zodiac sign. Every individual's horoscope is completely unique and creating a yearly forecast based on just where the Sun sign is placed in your chart is not valid astrology. But here are some broad generalizations.

Keep in mind that the last two months of 2005 were probably tougher on many Aquarians than any of the astrology aspects we will see in 2006. For Aquarians born between February 5th and 8th (and probably a couple of days on each side of these dates as well) note (see below) that you are experiencing a very powerful once in a lifetime Neptune transit this year.

Throughout January 2006:

Mars will be in the middle third of Taurus throughout January. This will provide a challenging and often energizing square to Aquarians who were born in mid Aquarius (with birthdays between February 1st to February 10th). Mars has already passed over these degrees twice in the fall of 2005 during it's unusually long transit through Taurus. This last pass-over may resolve (for better or worse) the issues that have been brewing since then. See the earlier post about the Mars transit through Taurus here.

Saturn will be opposing most Aquarians at some point this year. Throughout January Saturn will be transiting retrograde from 9 to 7 degrees of Leo. It will be opposing the Sun sign of early Aquarians and especially those born between January 27th to January 29th. This Saturn opposition Sun transit only happens once in thirty years and sometimes lasts off and on for many months. See what Saturn opposing your Sun may mean for you here.

On January 1st, retrograde Venus moves out of Aquarius (where it has visited only the first two degrees during the entire month of December) to start it's slow backward move through Capricorn. It will not return to Aquarius until early March.

Mars will be opposing Jupiter the whole month of January in the mid degrees of Taurus and Scorpio. The exact opposition happens on January 15th at 15 degrees. This will create a t-square for any Aquarians born in the middle third of the Aquarius zodiac sign. It's an energizing influence, but will be especially profound for people born between February 4th to February 7th as these people are also experiencing the once-in-a-lifetime Neptune conjunct Sun transit.

On January 20th the Sun enters Aquarius. This is a good thirty day period for Aquarians to shine. Especially this year as Mercury (planet of communication) will be closely tied to the Sun in Aquarius until February 9th.

For a complete one year forecast for Aquarians see Neil Giles' 2006 Aquarius Forecast here.
